November 21st kicks off Sagittarius season, as the Sun enters the sign of expansion, trust and inspiration. From November 22nd to 23rd, Mercury in Sagittarius defines the season with a hopeful sextile to Jupiter in Libra, and a focused conjunction to Saturn. Promises, big ideas or the sales pitch will be proven or denied. Saturn clarifies a commitment or narrows the field of vision. On November 26th, Mercury’s painful square to Chiron Rx in Pisces suggest that communication/ideas will reveal some bruises. But Mercury's trine to Uranus Rx in Aries urges you to keep talking, looking ahead or considering alternatives. Don’t allow an unpleasant realization to shut you down.
November 24th brings the first of three, ultra-powerful Jupiter/Pluto squares. Jupiter in Libra’s social ideals and expansion will create tension with Pluto in Capricorn. This tension will enhance the drive for achievement. The square is a crisis aspect, and crisis can push you to get what you want, or it can push you too far. Venus in Capricorn conjoins Pluto on November 25th, adding love, money and self-esteem issues to the mix. There’s potential for significant gain, but also potential for loss if you tip over into obsessive behaviour.
The Sun into your sector of opportunities spotlights travel, education, legal matters, publishing or exploration. Aspects to Mercury in your opportunities sector will focus you on one opportunity or official statement/document. You may zero in on a specific path, or receive an answer. Too, an ideal can be crystallized or denied, depending on its validity. Unacknowledged doubts or unforeseen issues may bring up questions/unpleasant news, but Mercury’s trine to Uranus Rx in your sign encourages you to keep an open mind, no matter what the outcome. There may be an unexpected silver lining.
Venus in your career sector triggers the Jupiter/Pluto square. A professional relationship could heat up, with an intense confrontation between personal ideals versus professional status. Ambition, competitiveness and your relationship with authority will impact your professional image. There’s potential for success, if you handle these energies carefully and remain as balanced as you can. Too, a partner’s success can feel threatening.
The Sun into your sector of shared resources shines a light on private issues, or areas where you don’t have complete control. Debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances or physical/emotional intimacy may be hot-button topics, and aspects to Mercury in this sector can trigger serious discussion. Financial or emotional matters may demand clarification of details and boundaries. Consider how confronting certain realities can help you move ahead in your daily life. External events/comparisons with others can draw your attention to what’s lacking, but creative/unusual ideas can throw a surprising solution at you. Watch for a last-minute reprieve or crazy idea that just might work.
Venus in your sector of opportunities triggers the Jupiter/Pluto square. Travel, education, legal matters, long-distance romance or publishing can be exciting but stressful. There may be a massive push to move forward in these areas, but you maytake it too far. Balance new developments with daily realities, and moderate enthusiasm with common sense. Use extra caution with legal matters or causes/crusades - avoid getting locked into a power struggle, or launching yourself at a more powerful opponent.
The Sun into your partnership sector hi-lights faith, shared beliefs and mutual growth ina relationship. Aspects to Mercury in this sector make joint goals, your approach to romance/children/commitment, pressing topics - it may be time to clarify exactly what each person hopes for. Too, there may be a reality-check answer or ultimatum. Discussions can reveal insecurities or clashing ideals about a future goal. Rather than allowing uncomfortable words to shut the discussion down, keep talking and searching for alternatives- there’s room for both partners in areas that you may not have considered. There may be touchy discussions in a business partnership, but pressing forward with a more detached approach will help. Fresh contributions from others can deliver solutions.
Venus in your sector of shared resources triggers the Jupiter/Pluto square. Shared finances or physical/emotional intimacy can be areas of dramatic gain, intense passion, or extreme overindulgence. A new attraction can enter obsessive territory, or an existing relationship can experience a surge of renewed life. Too, expectations of what someone else wants may be inflated. There’s opportunity for lucrative investment, but you can easily lose control and spend far more than you should. The temptation to go all in (financially or emotionally) will be strong. Just make sure you’re fully aware of what you’re getting into, and how much you can afford.
The Sun into your sector of routine spotlights health, self-improvement and work matters. Aspects to Mercury in this sector can help you organize and upgrade. Prioritizing facts, tasks and new information is supported, as well as a diagnosis or verbalized/written obligation. Discussions and information may feel restrictive, but you’ll also know exactly what you have to do, and others will know what you can do for them. A step-by-step approach can help you deal with big-picture developments that overwhelm you. Your calm expansion can also get favourable attention from those in authority, while enabling progress for a developing career path. Support your future by making the most of your present.
Venus in your relationship sector triggers the Jupiter/Pluto square. An intense new relationship can dramatically expand your domestic situation, or an existing relationship can challenge you with a leap of faith. Positive developments can feel overwhelming. The urge to move things along ASAP will be powerful, but if you push, you’ll likely trigger resistance or power struggles. Change has arrived in your personal life, and growth is guaranteed. But how you handle this will spell the difference between success or failure.
The Sun into your sector of self-expression may emphasize a desire, indulgence or new attraction. Performance, play or children/pregnancy may also be themes. Aspects to Mercury in this sector can see you getting serious and defining your intentions, even as you receive playful or encouraging information. Too, you may receive an answer that clarifies what you’ll receive for your efforts. Financial or emotional insecurity can undermine your confidence, or result in some hurtful exchanges. Too, you could end up saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Try to rise above the uncomfortable moment and keep your eye on the future - there are more possibilities waiting for you, if you have the confidence to keep looking.
Venus in your sector of routine triggers the Jupiter/Pluto square. Health, work or co-worker issues can bring a mix of hopeful and stressful developments.

Watch the line between personal and professional, with co-workers.
The Sun into your domestic sector hi-lights family, home business, relocation or domestic improvements. Aspects to Mercury in this sector suggest signing/finalizing home documents, divorce papers, or other legal matters involving family.

Not everything you hear will be favourable, and you may have to deal with unpleasant, practical details. But others can keep things moving forward via an inspiring collaboration or partnership.
Venus in your domestic sector triggers the Jupiter/Pluto square. Opportunity, luck or expansion has brought you to this point - you want to move up, but you’re colliding with issues involving family or the past.
