Weekly Horoscopes for 11/12-11/18
In another intense week, Venus turns direct in Libra (Friday) just before Mercury Retrogrades in Sagittarius (till 12/6). As the planet of communication and the mind appears to stop forward motion, it squares mystical Neptune. This connection accents the need to separate illusion from “facts”. Take the time to see how we each create and project a subjective view of any of our experiences. Neptune highlights our ideals and dreams too, especially as it also rules Mars in Pisces on the 15th. We can do some inner work around reviewing recent Venus retrograde experiences of intimacy/sexuality, power/powerlessness, relationships etc., and potentially discover our own strength and other personal revelations. See Below for your Weekly Astro Advice. Read your Sun and Rising Sign for a multi-dimensional view of the energies surrounding us this week!
