On November 13th, Venus in Scorpio conjuncts Saturn in Scorpio, just as Mars in Capricorn squares Uranus in Aries. This can be a really challenging combination.
Venus-Saturn may bring a narrow passage in relationships or finances, testing people's loyalties and forcing you to either compromise on what you want and commit to a concrete proposal to achieve results, or otherwise cut your losses. This is a moment of truth when it comes to money or love – time to put your cards on the table… Tough decisions now can help you consolidate affairs of the heart and make long-lasting investments.
At the same time, Mars-Uranus brings surprises out of left field to keep you on your toes. Things are unpredictable and go ‘snap’ under this influence, which brings a desire to cut ties and break free from whatever has been oppressing you and forcing your hand. It can signify unruly people, unstable circumstances and things blowing up in your face. There is a strong urge to carve your own way now, which can lead you to pioneer new paths. Try to avoid throwing the baby out with the bathwater if you can…
Roll Venus-Saturn and Mars-Uranus into one on November 13th, and we have a recipe for potential challenges. If you have anything important planned for 12th-14th November, you may want to reschedule and lay low as you test the waters. If, on the other hand, people and circumstances paint you into a corner, then do your best to keep your cool and consider your options carefully before you make a decision. Avoid flippancy, as whatever you decide is likely to have long-term relationship or financial repercussions.
Mars in Capricorn also sextiles Chiron in Pisces on November 13th, offering an opportunity for wise action to offset the flippancy of Mars-Uranus. If you manage to handle the energies constructively, you can break free of a tyrannical situation and restore your sense of potency, while also manifesting something that you want – whether this is a relationship, financial deal or artistic project.
