Get ready to delve into the mysteries of your emotions and find solutions to your challenges

Mars returned to direct motion together with the New Moon in Scorpio this past weekend. It was a powerful moment. Mars is the starting pistol, and the New Moon brings new beginnings. Energy is flowing. Finally, there is action. The race is on. 

Have you been feeling rather nervous and pent-up? It's not surprising. Mercury's three oppositions to electric Uranus have predominated for several weeks. This phenomenon reaches a conclusion this week. Uranus is notorious for producing instability and anxiety. Yet plenty of good would have come out of this. You can count on Uranus to keep your mind stimulated. If you keep your nerve under the pressure, you'll come up with some good innovative ideas. 

Venus makes a sign change into mysterious Scorpio at the end of the week on Saturday just as the Sun enters Sagittarius. The Scorpio Venus will delve deep into the mysterious world of buried emotions. The Sagittarius Sun brings a jolly time of ringing bells and bright colours as we enter the festive season. 

I'm keeping an eye on Jupiter and Saturn for you as they head for their momentous conjunction in Aquarius on the Winter Solstice of December 21. They conjunct every 20 years. For the past two-hundred-years they have met in Earth signs — Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo. Materialism, wealth and corporations have predominated.  

December 21 will mark the start of a new two-hundred-year cycle of meetings in air signs —Aquarius, Gemini and Libra. Thought, ideas, philosophy and humanitarianism look set to predominate. There will be other characteristics too. Only time will tell. 

Here is your horoscope for the week of Monday, November 16, 2020.


Clarity is beginning to return to your world. Soon, you won't feel so baffled and boggled by a confusing situation. You'll understand it as well as you have understood anything. What you now know, you know fully. You'll also appreciate why you had to get lost before finding your way. It will soon prove to be of immense value. You will find a way to escape the tedium of a certain predicament. This will enable you to shrewdly negotiate for something better. You are not a puppet on a string. The Sun entering Sagittarius insists that quite the opposite is true. You are the puppeteer tugging on the strings. 


It often happens that we do not fully understand the reality of what we are living. The explanation we settled for makes sense. It sounds convincing as long as we didn't question it too closely. Months and years later, we see what was really going on. We learn by trial and error. The Sun moving into bright Sagittarius will be an enlightening change that will liberate you from an unwanted set of circumstances. You'll see things that were hidden in a cloud of obfuscation. You'll have a better sense of control over the direction your life is taking you.


You might well ask why some people have to be so awkward or a particular situation be so complicated. There is not much you can do about this other than to alter your own attitude. The Universe works in very strange ways. Your problem now is shifting your trajectory in such a way that you will find yourself at the right place at the right time to facilitate an auspicious and supremely lucky encounter. The Sun moving into Sagittarius will activate the power of serendipity. Gestures of kindness and conciliation may not be immediately met with a warm response, but they will have a very real impact over time. And you'll see how fortunate you are. 


You are more fortunate than you know. We all pay more attention to our problems and the challenges. Now is the time to focus on finding solutions. They, after all, require us to take some form of action. With the Sun moving into Sagittarius you are about to catch something you have long been chasing. What you are going through is, believe it or not, leading you to success. And it'll come right where you need it most. If you need more of something in your life now, stop worrying about the possibility of getting less of it. What you need will come to you quite naturally. 


You have more choice and therefore, more reason to blame yourself if things go wrong. Sometimes, when our lives are dictated by forces beyond our control, we can feel more comforted than imposed upon. In dealing with the challenges and difficulties you face it is imperative to see the bright side. The Sun's entry into Sagittarius is giving you a clear message — trust yourself. Steer toward the light and success will be there to greet you. Keep your face to the Sun!


You like to be kept busy. If there isn't enough going on, you often find a new problem, just to keep things interesting. That's a good thing, not a bad thing, because you are naturally good at responding to challenges. Your solutions will all work well, provided you don't let emotions get the better of you. The Sun's grand entrance into Sagittarius this week will make you feel buoyant, bright and determined as possible in spirit and attitude whilst respecting the gravitas of your situation. Adapt to the new and trust that it has plenty to offer for it surely does. You'll soon be parting rivers!


A problem that's been a longstanding issue has gone on long enough. You need to get a better handle on it. The level of anxiety affecting you now is based on your fear of not making it through a tough emotional quagmire. There is, most certainly an element of risk, but you can change that. You can, perhaps, reduce its size and importance. The Sun in Sagittarius will change your perspective. If you now try you can steer the ship of your life wherever you most want to. You haven't got a problem. You have an incredible opportunity. A major block will be overcome that will lead to relief and liberation. 


Some insights must be made. Some epiphanies must be experienced. The only way you'll ever be able to put a cherry on a certain cake is by baking it in the first place. With the Sun entering Sagittarius, you will come to the startling realization that you have succeeded at terminating a negative thought pattern. Crucial insights are due to come as a result. You have successfully cleared away certain big emotional obstacles. Your self-awareness is growing and as it grows you are taking major steps toward the accomplishment of a dream. Your life is headed in a new and highly positive direction. 


Existence is a precious, simple gift to be enjoyed and appreciated, not nervously dissected and analyzed. You are contemplating a big bold move. It seems crazy, but it is ludicrously simple which is why you're a little nervous about it. It may be hard to believe, in light of what you've been through, but your future is set to unfold in a most positive fashion. The Sun moving into Sagittarius will teach you the power of the benevolent universe. It will provide the luck you need to navigate around a looming challenge. Serendipity is irrevocably on your side as you enter a most auspicious interlude in your life. 


Each time you think you have picked up so much momentum that you just can't be stopped, something comes up that stops the dream from turning into a reality. Excuses are being made based on your fearful reluctance to take action where action is required. Your reliable intuition is what you need to guide you through the confusion. The key to opening up your intuition is to stop the mind-chatter. Trust the source that is most assuredly guiding you. It is protecting you and leading you toward success. The Sun entering Sagittarius will give you the optimism and the courage to do what you just do. 


Some people love to argue. Life for them always produces situations that stimulate an argument. When you are on the receiving end it can be very draining and wearing. Conflicts take up loads of time, energy and attention. The Universe echoes back what we call out to it. Complain and the Universe is likely to snarl back at you. Your best chance for success is to smile and feel gratitude for all the good that is in your life. The Sun moving into Sagittarius will help you build on good feelings that will work up to a heartfelt laugh. Before you know it, you and everyone around you will be laughing. A direct path to happiness lies before you. 


Life's most amazing experiences tend to be subtle rather than shocking. Sounds, smell, tastes and textures may even seem deceptively ordinary at first until on closer inspection, we recognize that they are exceptional. You've been working your way through some tough character-building challenges. It hasn't been easy, but it's been good for you. It's made you wiser, tougher, but also more sensitive to your surroundings. You will appreciate the magic in everything. You'll wonder how on Earth you could have missed it before. The inquisitive energy of the Sun in Sagittarius will wake you up.
