There’s a lot going on this week in the cosmos, so let’s take a breath and get our sea legs before we dive in. First, we leave the dark and mysterious world of Scorpio and enter the optimistic, adventurous Sagittarius era on the 22nd. Then, we have a full moon in Gemini on the 23rd. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which is currently in retrograde, so any issues connected to communication, including expressing our truth, could come to the forefront.

We might also experience an intense frenetic energy that could make us question people’s true intentions as well as slip into toxic communication patterns. This is the moment to check yourself. Are you really listening when you speak with others, or are you a me-firster? Are you fixated on how you think others should give and receive information, or are you open to the differences in how people connect?

Also on November 23rd, Neptune ends it five-month retrograde run and goes direct in Pisces. We’ve finally let old illusions and projections crumble to the ground and we’re seeing previous experiences, relationships, and ourselves through a more realistic and clear lens. What facets of yourself still remain after this time of reckoning? Here’s what else the stars have in store for you in your weekly horoscope.

SCORPIO

You’re focused on your career more than ever, Scorpio. You’re vibing a more confident and secure aura, which solidifies the idea that “we are what we attract.” When opportunities come knocking, say “yes, and,” because you’re ready for them.

SAGITTARIUS

It’s basically your birthday season, Sag, so you’re feeling more like yourself than you have in a while. You’re infused with a refreshed sense of optimism, which means you’re now keen to explore untapped adventures that you’ve put on the back burner.

CAPRICORN

You’re concerned with work, Capricorn. You’ve been feeling stressed about a particular project or whether or not you’re actually moving ahead. In true Capricorn fashion, you’re being a little hard on yourself. Try to see that you’re successful as is, and trust that everything’s lining up for you.

AQUARIUS

There’s a lot of information coming at you, Aquarius, but what’s real? While you might want to believe in certain people, you also need to remember that not everyone has the same moral compass or integrity as you do. When in doubt, trust your gut and don’t be afraid to ask questions.

PISCES

You’re in need of a creative outlet, Pisces. Tapping into your creativity is so natural for you, but it’s something that you’ve been neglecting lately. When we honor our creativity, we honor our inner truth, which helps open up our world emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

ARIES

You’re in a mood, Aries. You feel like you’re in a tug-of-war with life right now, and you’re seething to do something about it. You just don’t know what. The stars want you to hold your horses. Instead, get grounded and practical. It’s different for a fire sign like you, but it’ll help you gain perspective.

TAURUS

When it comes to a particular issue, you might feel like you’re hitting a brick wall, Taurus. You’re torn about whether you should keep at it—like the stubborn bull that you are—or if you should just give up. When in doubt, go within and don’t be afraid to seek advice from your support system.

GEMINI

You’re feeling a little out of touch with the world, Gemini. Blame Mercury Retrograde as you scramble to make sense of your whirling mind and all the chaotic energy that’s being reflected back to you. This is a good time to take a break; go into nature, take a breath, and be still.

CANCER

It’s time to have a heart-to-heart with that person, Cancer. You know who that is. While you don’t like confrontation, it’s important to share your needs and thoughts, especially with those closest to you. Remember, vulnerability is a strength.

LEO

While you might feel like you want to do something big and important this week, Leo, you will run into a number of obstacles. Don’t let these temporary hindrances stop you from achieving what you want, but also take note that swimming downstream is a whole lot easier than fighting upstream.

VIRGO

You’re feeling off your game, Virgo, which is messing with your head. You might have a ton of emails to catch up on or you’re putting off a project that needs to be handled. It’s okay to let loose sometimes. No one is perfect. Enjoy your downtime; you’ll be back in the game soon.

LIBRA

You’re feeling a little directionless, Libra. See this time as a blank slate. You’re able to create your own story now. While this might not be the ideal time to put things into action, you can definitely come up with a plan and a to-do list.

This is a good week to line things up, bbs, as we prepare for a new way of being and experiencing. Yes, we’ll encounter some obstacles, but if we allow ourselves to take a moment and let life flow, then we’ll take bigger strides forward than we could ever expect.
