Astrology Forecast for Nov. 3-16

By Cortney Litwin / Staff Writer

The mind-blowing Mercury-Uranus opposition on the 5th is great for intellectual quantum leaps but volatile for everyday communications. Adding some mental stability is Mercury’s transit into practical Capricorn on the 5th, but watch out for skewed communications and paperwork during retrograde Mercury from Nov. 13 until Dec. 3. But the major influence this week is the Sun-Mars-Neptune collision on the 6th-7th, a potentially explosive tug-of-war between ego agendas and idealism, and may herald another round of wild watery weather as well. Next, after five months of back-stepping, Uranus finally turns direct on Nov. 15th, accelerating personal breakthroughs and technological innovations-just in time for the financially energized full moon, also on the 15th.

If you know your rising sign from your time of birth, read that also.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Toss out the rose-colored financial glasses this week, when an unreliable offer or transaction may arise. The full moon also emphasizes money, with better results. Group activities provide opportunities when Uranus turns direct.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Pushing yourself professionally or personally will exhaust and confuse you now; wait until after the 15th to act, when Uranus clarifies your direction. Passion skyrockets during the emotionally and financially energizing full moon.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Your nervous system and mental state are in overload around the 5th-7th and during the full moon, when even little irritations get under your skin. Uranus direct will inspire a new direct that may include travel or education.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Intensity may unhinge a close relationship with a lover or child around the 7th, when clear communications are key. The full moon heats up romance and energizes creativity. And direct-moving Uranus helps clarify joint finances.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Uranus turning direct helps you envision a future with your partner-together or apart. Just try to stay centered during an intense time around the 7th, when anger issues may surface. The full moon amps up the energy in your career.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Uranus turning direct says it may be time to revise your diet and exercise routine. Communications or travel plans may go awry around the 7th. And the full moon presents an opportunity that entails learning something new.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Romantic electricity and creative juices sizzle after Uranus turns direct. Watch out for iffy financial dealings around the 6th. The full moon also energizes moneymaking opportunities, but be sure to read the fine print.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A personal entanglement may cause enough anger to cloud your judgment around the 7th, so stay centered. Your emotional energy skyrockets during the full moon. And Uranus turning direct will catapult your family plans into high gear.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your words may outrun your discretion around the 5th-7th, so tame your impulsive side. The full moon is physically energizing. And Uranus turning direct will awaken your talent for innovation and help untangle any tied up projects.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A misunderstanding with a lover or friend around the 6th may require you to initiate a heart-to-heart talk. The full moon also emphasizes relationships. And Uranus turning direct will assist in moving financial plans forward.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your ruler Uranus turning direct should accelerate any personal or professional plans that have been on hold for five months. Watch out for tricky communications around the 6th. The full moon energizes family activities.
