Your tendency to shoot from the hip could be an issue for the first
three weeks of November. Sure, your spontaneity is delightful and your
willingness to live for the moment can be a great source of joy, even
inspiration. Until November 22, the mood is thick with emotions that are
not to be taken lightly.
The love planet Venus is retrograde, a backward cycle that began on
October 8 and continues until November 18, which tends to dig up issues
from the past that you’d probably rather leave behind. However, this is a
major period of relationship maintenance. Putting in extra effort can
be a key to staying happy with the one you’re with or to get you on a
more productive path to finding the partner you desire. You may have to
work hard and face some assumptions you hold about yourself and about
love that just don’t work any more. The complex emotions that arise are
unlikely to be comfortable but it’s worthwhile to engage them.
On November 5 the New Moon in Scorpio plants seeds of possibility in
your 8th House of Deep Sharing. You may be ready to compromise and give
up some independence to establish a greater degree of intimacy. On the
other hand, if you have a manipulative partner, this can be a time when
your resistance to being controlled may go through the roof. Think of
this as a time to take a commitment to the next level, make needed
relationship adjustments or recognize that the price you’re paying is
too high and consider moving on.
