Keep in mind that militant Mars turned retrograde Wednesday at 13 Cancer, the USAs natal sun degree, and one degree away from Ws natal sun. Will there be an about face, a reversal of the fortunes of war?
The next 77 days of retracing recent steps taken may tell, and then again, it may not. Mars flips forward on January 30, two days after Mercury begins its next retrograde period and a few days before the primaries on Feb. 5. Need a distraction? How about a hot, provocative square between the aforementioned Mr. Macho and romantic Venus exact on Monday, but sure to affect your hormones before then. Mercury is also very busy this week, exchanging information with every sign that isnt obsessing over hearts and flowers. Sagittarius starts on Thursday. Happy Thanksgiving.
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
If you concentrate on romance and its infinite variety then you wont have the time or the inclination to think about the ramifications of Thanksgiving and how long they will last. (With your Mars ruler retrograde for 11 weeks, probably too long.) But back to the lovey-dovey stuff and Venus sojourn in your Libra marriage house. The goddess can draw attractive people to your side until she moves into sexy Scorpio on Dec. 5. But its how she comes on to Mars this week, and the banter that follows, thatll keep you hooked.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
Every time your romantic Venus ruler contacts sexy Mars, something exciting, well, at least interesting, follows. Such is the case this week, and while the meet cute can take place at any time and in any location, you might want to pay particular attention to the reaction you get from folks in the workplace, both yours and wherever else you go, e.g., the market, the gym, the cleaners. Then, as the week progresses, a smitten Venus will come under the spell of idealistic Neptune, and their connection could have you walking on clouds.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
Its likely that loving Venus in your Libra house of romance and recreation will cost you real money if you pursue the various pleasures the goddess offers. So what! Since her annual visit only lasts a few weeks anyway, you might as well try to gather all the benefits shes willing to hand out. Just be aware that shortly after Thanksgiving, nebulous Neptune becomes a force when it completes the airy-fairy grand trine thats been building between Aquarius, Libra and Gemini. Will your new job bring you back to earth?
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
You never know where or when the love bug will bite.
Keep this in mind as you wend your way through the long Thanksgiving weekend visiting friends and, because romantic Venus is passing through the old neighborhood, relatives and former classmates. Its the classic attraction between horny Mars, currently in your sign, and magnetic Venus in lovable Libra that is responsible for the sparks flying every which way. Although Mars will remain in Cancer for whatll feel like forever, Venus moves on early next month. Carpe diem.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
Theres a lot of chattering going on in your chart thanks to Mercury passing through your Scorpio house of domestic affairs and real estate matters. Maybe the conversation will center on the Thanksgiving feast, maybe youll have money matters to discuss when Uranus in your house of investments and insurance changes direction and, once again, looks to the future instead of the past. But if all that talking wears on your nerves, as well it might, you can find relief in a recreational activity, especially the heart-thumping kind.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
Right now your tuned-in Mercury ruler is the busiest of the planets, hopping from pillar to post and exchanging messages with most of the signs along the way. Seriously, while the Messenger of the Gods transits your Scorpio house of communication, commerce and commuting, you cant help but play a crucial role at Command Central. Just make sure you leave enough time free to deal with the sudden changes in a relationship that may occur when unpredictable Uranus in your Pisces house of partners comes out of retrograde on the 24th.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
It may seem redundant but while your lovable and loving Venus ruler is in your sign, theres no reason to direct your attention to anything else. Certainly not while virile Mars in nurturing Cancer is devising a plan to seduce the goddess over the holiday weekend. Will the bait take the form of a deep-fried turkey or a devilishly delicious stuffing? Theres also an addictive element to this scheme that might not show up until amorphous Neptune, ruler of mind-altering substances, lavishes Venus and you with its gifts as the holiday ends.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21 1
