WEEK OF November 14 – 2 0, 2022
Take a chance on romance: That’s the message you’ll be getting from flirtatious Venus when she bounds into fellow fire sign Sagittarius and your liberated ninth house on Wednesday, November 16. Let the paperwork and non-obligatory tasks sit for another day (or three) and follow the love planet’s lead as she kicks up her heels in this adventurous sector. Just ahead of the holidays, this is your celestial season for glamming up, going out and doing…whatever you feel like! Thanks to this spontaneous Venus-in-Sag energy, you could start a party simply by showing up. And you’ll be happy to chat up strangers starting on Thursday, when communication planet Mercury sidles up next to Venus. This area of your chart helps open your mind to a wider swatch of amorous possibilities—provided everyone is unattached of course.
Single Aries may be drawn to far more eclectic types than usual. Listen for sexy accents and start circulating at classier venues, perhaps some upscale boutique-hotel bars. The quicker you start thinking beyond your usual “criteria list,” the faster you’ll find yourself rubbing shoulders (and maybe other body parts) with intriguing people who are VERY different from your exes. If you’re attached during this expansive cycle, you may realize that you need a little more breathing room. You don’t have to do anything dramatic (i.e., break up with bae), but you may need to renegotiate the amount of together time you spend. Mercury moves on to your career corner on December 6 and Venus is just three days behind, so make the most out of this stimulating time while you can!
In the middle of all this exploring and expanding, you may be forced to tap—or slam on—the brakes. On Saturday, confusing Neptune—in your dreamy twelfth house no less—mixes it up with action planet Mars in Gemini and your communication center. Both planets are spinning in reverse, scrambling signals all the more, plus this is their second of three such clashes. (The first was on October 12, and final comes on March 14, 2023.) To say that direct and honest dialog will be a challenge is the understatement of the month! Part of the reason may be that you yourself aren’t 100 percent clear on what you want—or how you want to express it. On top of that, Neptune is turning you into a flip-flopping machine. Relationships that felt rock-solid may suddenly seem like they’re built on quicksand. Even if conversations go sideways, you don’t have to retreat into your cave. Just do your best to be straightforward, and if someone tries to provoke you, don’t even nibble on the bait, however tempting!
