Love Horoscope for the Week of November 29

Love Horoscope for the Week of November 29

After some very challenging weeks, with difficult Mars aspects to first Saturn and then Uranus, I am pleased to report that this week’s romantic outlook is actually pretty darn good. And once again, this is because of an emphasis on (among other things) Mars in Scorpio… which is playing nicely with the other planets for once.

Mars in Scorpio is trine Neptune this week, with the exact aspect happening on Monday. This will make the entire week a generally good and happy time for getting things done, whether we are talking about long-standing projects that requires a gentle touch, or “getting things done” in the bedroom. If you’ve been reading my work for a while, you know that I sometimes provide some caution when the sexual energies are as ramped up as they will be this week. However, this time, I’m tempted to throw caution to the wind. But that’s me. Make sure you’re more careful than I’ve been on occasion.

If the current state of your love life requires talking someone into (or out of) something, try Tuesday. That’s when Mercury sextile Saturn is exact. The thoughtful and logical energy Mercury, combined with the firm backbone of Saturn, can make for some very persuasive messaging.

(I’ll bet you read that as “massaging” rather than “messaging.” That’s because of that Mars-Neptune aspect, you naughty thing, you!)

Also on Tuesday, Venus sextile Neptune is exact. Just as the Mars-Neptune aspect makes for dreamily amplified sex drives, Venus sextile Neptune will turn up the volume on romance and seduction. It’s not such a great time to stick to a diet or budget, though.

On Wednesday, Neptune turns direct at 20 degrees Pisces. The further a planet is from the Sun, the longer its retrograde periods are. In general, I’m not expecting the end of Neptune retrograde to have broad and specific effects on society in general, but for many of you as individuals, you’ll find that the benefits and/or detriments that Neptune has brought you in the last two or three years will be back.

Finally, if you’re like me, you might get a little suspicious of if all of the news is good. I’m not going to end this week’s forecast with bad news, but with caution. That’s because on Saturday there is a Total Solar Eclipse at 12 degrees Sagittarius. The effect this has depends largely on the placements in your individual birth chart, but I can say at least this much for it: it looks a lot less problematic than the Lunar Eclipse we had a couple of weeks ago. So… hooray, maybe?
