Action planet Mars in Libra, which fights by killing with kindness, clashes with power planet Pluto in Capricorn on Tuesday, November 5. Arguments may erupt, the status quo is either attacked or aggressively defended, and tempers are short! This is not a time to engage with people, especially strangers, who have any sort of aggression, like road rage. Remember you can dance or sweat your anger out, and there’s no need to take it out on other people!
The sun connects with taskmaster Saturn and hazy Neptune in Pisces on Friday, November 8, and we gain a clear understanding of our basic responsibilities and how they align with our beliefs. While Saturn builds walls, Neptune is an ocean wave that knocks the walls down. The sun’s connection with Neptune, also known as the planet of deception, can provide some clarity and understanding to things that are difficult to define, making Neptune’s haze less confusing. This is a great time to get what you want—Saturn in Capricorn is ruthless in getting its way, steadfast and determined, and Neptune is down for whatever. As the sun connects with both of these planets, we reap the benefits of being on top of our game. Neptune is the magic that Saturn will bottle!
Also on Friday, Saturn connects with Neptune, and Neptune’s influence allows one to manipulate reality in a flattering way. As these planets connect, those who haven’t been on top of everything can at least maintain the illusion of responsibility and productivity, permitting us to get our way. The presence of serious and responsible Saturn provides something to hold onto in the misty mystery of Neptune’s fog.

Putting your focus on positive community impact is a better use of your energy than getting into an online fight.

Is jealousy sexy? In many forms it can be unhealthy, but if it’s simply another expression of passion and desire, then bombs away! Action planet Mars clashes with power planet Pluto, which can generate some hot, sexual friction and creative fire. But it can also stimulate the yuckier side of possessiveness and, if you’re in cahoots with the wrong people, an unfortunate mean streak. Find a positive way to release any frustrations. The sun, Neptune, and Saturn all connect on Friday, and you are figuring out new ways to overcome sticky situations. Ask for what you want now, whether it’s a day off from work or a loan, and you can manifest it—but Mercury is still retrograde, so expect to explain yourself a few times over!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You are a sign with naturally strong defenses, Cancer, but try not to be defensive! Represented by the crab, which has mean claws and a hard outer shell, your defenses will be tested as action planet Mars clashes with power planet Pluto. Remember that there are better ways to express your fears or concerns than picking a fight. You’re making changes in your personal life to have more control over your relationships. Trust is important. Your creative life and sex life are both inspired as you have the ability to manifest the interpersonal or artistic dynamic of your dreams. Reach out a claw and clasp things that are typically murky or undefined as structural Saturn connects with dreamy Neptune.
