This is another intense week- starting off with Pluto direct in Capricorn, then Venus Retrograde in Scorpio on the 5th (till Nov. 16), creating friction with Mars in Aquarius who is traveling with a special companion now- Black Moon Lilith, (more on Lillith and her fight for the dis-enfranchised feminine soon)
Themes of abuse of power ( Pluto/ Scorpio) from Authority figures ( Capricorn/Saturn) are EVERYWHERE right now and we are also seeing these stories reflected in the Astrology of NOW. Venus’s Retrograde is a BIGGIE. Especially in Scorpio she reflects the outrage of ANY mis-use of her power and energy. I am writing more this week on Venus Retrogrades and what to expect, but it is relational and especially retrospective. In Scorpio she will dig deep to get the heart of your patterns with unresolved or hidden issues. This is an 18 month cycle so look to what was going on in March/ Early April of 2017 where it retrograded in Aries for an example of her work.( I reconciled with and moved in with my boyfriend then!!) For more, read your Sun/Rising Sign below for personal clues for how Venus Retrograde , Pluto direct as well as some other big stuff may effect you this week!
Aries is galvanized this month in lots of areas. Partners, resources from partners- and the secrets they may be hiding, power and your new direction, ideals and community- whew! It’s a big deal.

Issues of health and how your daily habits and rituals influence it, are at play now. You may be able to transform your health or your body with new habits.
