After some tough weeks for relationships, we’re finally cut some slack. Love planet Venus clashes with generous Jupiter at 12:32 AM on Monday, November 16, and the two most positive planets are making it happen for us! Look out for overindulgence. This is good for fashion and aesthetics, but we can overlook important details for the sake of seeing things through rose-tinted glasses.

On Tuesday, November 17, Mercury faces off with Uranus for the third and final time this year at 3:07 AM and unexpected news and plot twists arrive! There were all sorts of surprises in October, and this is just another one. Think back to October 20 and October 7 for clues.

Commitments are made and things are set in stone as the sun gently connects with serious Saturn on Thursday, November 19, at 2:17 AM. Come to a fair agreement and make a lasting connection. Also on Thursday, love planet Venus clashes with Saturn at 6:28 AM: There can be feelings of loneliness and duty, but we’re taking our desires seriously. This encourages us to dial down our Jupiterian indulgences.

Venus enters Scorpio on Saturday, November 21, at 8:21 AM, the sign of its fall: The planet of love and beauty can’t do its normal job in this zodiacal moldy basement. Venus wants everything to come to it while Mars-ruled Scorpio is assertive and bold. Venus in Scorpio dresses like it’s Halloween year round.

Also on Saturday, the sun enters Sagittarius and Sagittarius season begins! Sagittarius is the sign of higher knowledge and exploration of all sorts. The answer to any question is “I don’t see why not.”
