Weekly Horoscope: November 8 – 14

Watch your tongue as Mercury, the planet of communication, meets with passionate Mars on Tuesday, November 9, at 7:56 AM. While this is a great aspect to think on your feet and come up with exciting ideas, it’s not the best time for putting things gently. Make sure you double check before sending any hasty, angry messages!

Mercury clashes with Saturn, which might be the bearer of bad news on Wednesday, November 10, at 12:04 PM. Thoughts can be our own worst enemy! This is a good moment to address your standards or voice your need for space or support. We’re fighting an uphill battle, but in the end things are implemented for the sake of sustainability. 

Also on Wednesday, action planet Mars clashes with Saturn at 6:13 PM, which can leave a bitter taste in our mouths. There’s pressure to act now, but the changes that are being asked of us take a lot effort! This is one of  the most challenging aspects of the year, but it can be a beneficial time for things that take a lot of focus, willpower, and dedication. Some things need to change in order to keep up the energy, but changing them is tricky and not without effort.

It can be hard to think big with a heavy mental atmosphere, but try to come up with some impossible ideas and then follow through. What are your wishes? And who is your fairy godparent? We can easily get whatever we ask for right now, if we can spin it correctly. The sun harmonizes with Neptune, the planet of illusions and beliefs, putting vaseline on the lens, so to speak. We can make a strong case for ourselves!

Surprising messages come as Mercury faces off with Uranus, the planet of the unexpected on Saturday at 10:56 AM! While much of this week’s astrology is eager to plan and have structure, there are some things that throw us for a loop and give us more wiggle room and grace.

All times ET.
