Love Horoscope for the Week of November 21

weeklyloveMost of the week is dominated by major aspects to Mercury and Jupiter. If that sounds a little too chatty and philosophical for you, fear not: there’s some nice Venus action kicking in for the weekend.

Speaking of “chatty and philosophical,” on Monday the Sun enters Sagittarius. Forget the usual advice about buying gifts that emphasize the intellectual side of that sign and its sense of the exotic: since Saturn is in Sagittarius, think “drugs and gift certificates for therapy.”

The first part of the week is dominated by Mercury aspects, which bring both new ideas and a certain seriousness of expression. First, Mercury sextile Jupiter on Tuesday can boost your creativity and your ability to express yourself when you might otherwise be too shy to speak up. This could normally lead to a little “foot in mouth syndrome” (especially with the Sun now being in Sagittarius), but Mercury conjunct Saturn on Wednesday will lend your thoughts and words the added seriousness your great new ideas may need.

A little verbal restraint can be a good thing, especially when your mood is restless and demands change. That’s exactly the effect that Jupiter square Pluto will have. This aspect is exact on Thursday, but casts its effect over the entire week. It can make things boisterous and can do wonders for shaking up your routine, but there’s a down side to this aspect. It can also be a little like that college buddy of yours who kept insisting that you have “one more beer, dude!” until you awoke with memory loss and without pants in a stranger’s bath tub. The key to this aspect is moderation — and with Jupiter square Pluto, moderation could be in short supply.

After all that talking and thinking… it’s nice to get out and go hunting for love on the weekend, isn’t it? Love and affection are ruled by Venus, and on Friday Venus makes two aspects that will certainly improve your odds of finding something new and exciting, but may not necessarily lend themselves to stability. First, Venus conjunct Pluto increases romantic longings, making the apathetic suddenly interested in flirting and interacting. Then, Venus square Jupiter turns romantic longings into gnawing hunger. Think of that description I gave you of your irresponsible college friend… and then pretend that’s actually Cupid goading you into potential misadventure. Hey, a little reckless abandon in love can be fun, but if you’re looking for something new, you’ll be best off avoiding going out on Friday: the Moon will be Void of Course in Libra for most of the day. Moon in Libra may love a new romance, but a Void of Course Moon is no time to start anything lasting. Wait until Saturday, when Moon in Scorpio brings the sexy, and Mercury trine Uranus may inspire some new and unusual dirty talk.
