That’s enough brooding, cosmic warrior! On Tuesday, November 21, the sun concludes its tour of moody Scorpio and shifts into the animated Sagittarius constellation. Sagittarius is the last fire sign of the zodiac, represented by the archer. The mythological Sagittarius warrior ejects its blazing arrow incredible distances — and the sign, accordingly, is associated with wild pursuits of philosophy, travel, and scholarship. Sagittarian energy also comes jam-packed with whole lot of humor. Fast-talkin’ Sags aren’t afraid to tell it like it is, and their refreshingly candid sensibilities always guarantee raucous laughter. On a bad day, however, Sagittarian sentiments can be boastful, crass, and insensitive. From now until December 21, we must be careful with our words: Tough love can be hurtful, and we must always remember to lead with kindness, empathy, and compassion.
During Sagittarius season, we’ll feel increasingly inspired to expand our horizons. While some of us may set sail for parts unknown, others will manifest this energy by reaching out to distant friends, cultivating new hobbies, or refocusing our aim. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of growth and good fortune. Jupiter’s auspicious abundance invites us to take risks and follow our passions. The Sagittarius sensibility is endearingly optimistic, so this is an excellent season to be bold, embark on new adventures, and reignite our joie de vivre.
Though we’re about to brave another dreaded Mercury retrograde (the final Mercury retrograde installment of 2017 begins December 3), Mercury isn’t the only planet that goes reverse. Since June 16, Neptune — the planet of dreams and fantasy — has been gliding backwards, screwing with our subconscious desires and distorting reality. Luckily, this Wednesday, November 22, Neptune stations direct and resumes its forward facing march. Though Neptune’s about-face won’t be excessively jarring (outer planet retrogrades are not as dramatic as inner planet retrogrades), we should expect to feel a gentle nudge that guides us back on track. From now until the next Neptune retrograde on June 18, 2018, pathological paranoia will dissipate, and we will have an easier time delineating fact from fiction.
On Saturday, November 25, messenger planet Mercury in Sagittarius links up with rebellious Uranus in Aries, forming a fire sign connection (in astrospeak, this planetary connection is referred to as a “trine”). Uranus governs innovation, technology, and very unexpected surprises, so keep an eye on your emails and DMs: You may receive shocking information through a digital channel this weekend! This cosmic coupling is totally electrifying, so be sure to keep an open mind and don’t be afraid to challenge your perspective.
Good luck out there! See you next Monday!
As the sun barreled through the Scorpio constellation, Aries were inclined to explore their darker, edgier sides. Though the past few weeks offered important moments of reflection, fiery rams generally prefer to take action and get shit done. On Tuesday, November 21, the sun shifts into like-minded Sagittarius, inspiring Aries to swap out their moody ’tude for a playful sense of adventure. Through December 21, the sun’s movement across Sagittarius activates your ninth house of travel, philosophy, and education; this is an excellent time to break away from banal routines and adopt a wanderlust sensibility. If you’re unable to voyage via plane, train, or automobile, dip your toes in a new pastime or cultivate a dormant passion.

The past few weeks have been all about relationships, partnerships, and twosomes. On Tuesday, November 21, however, the sun refocuses your attention inward as it glides into the Sagittarius constellation. From now until December 21, the sun’s tour through fiery Sagittarius activates your elusive eighth house — the area of your chart associated with death, sex, and transformation. Sound familiar? The eighth house is associated with Scorpionic themes, so even though Scorpio season is technically over, you have another four weeks to explore the darker side of life. Don’t be afraid to deep dive into your psychological inner workings and embark on some seriously emotional expeditions.
On Saturday, November 25, a connection between Mercury and Uranus highlights your sleepy twelfth house of dreams and fantasies.

While you’re digesting, luxuriate with Tatcha’s Violet-C Radiance Mask, a creamy face mask that works hard while you relax. If only life was always this easy.

Activity in Sagittarius illuminates your seventh house of partnerships, inspiring the most untethered Gemini to get cuffed. Until December 21, Gemini will be all about relationships, so don’t be surprised if surprised if your favorite winter accessory is a new boo. Already attached?

But before you make any major moves, you’ll of course need to discuss with your closest friends — that’s right, all fifty of them.

To quote fellow water goddess Rihanna, “work, work, work, work, work.” On Tuesday, November 21, the sun shifts out of like-minded Scorpio and into fiery Sagittarius, activating your sixth house — the area of your chart associated with routines, day jobs, and physical fitness. The sixth house sheds light on how we utilize the hours of the day. While some Cancers may abide by the system of thirds (eight hours of sleep, eight hours of work, and eight of recreation), other crabs may decide to completely reevaluate their regimens. Don’t be afraid to restructure your schedule, lovely Cancer, awarding yourself even more time to explore health and wellness. This weekend will be all about long-term strategy, as a link between Mercury and Uranus invigorates your tenth house of professional aspirations.

Alas, Scorpio season has finally come to an end. On Tuesday, November 21, the sun says au revoir to your homebase and moves into the fiery Sagittarius constellation. This planetary motion shifts energy out of your “me, myself, and I” zone (the first house) and into the area of your chart associated with personal finances (the second house). That’s right, Scorpio: This month is all about the Benjamins!
The second house is always activated directly after one’s birthday season, and it serves as a monetary checkpoint.

Scorpio season was an important time for reconnecting with your extended network, lovely Capricorn, but when the sun moves into Sagittarius on Tuesday, November 21, your focus shifts inward. From now until December 21, the sun’s motion will activate your dreamy twelfth house — the mysterious area of your chart associated with fantasy, illusion, and serious introspection. Sensitivities will be heightened as the sun cascades through this pensive region…which is not necessarily comfortable for stoic Capricorns, who often prefer logic over emotion. You may feel a bit out of sorts over the next few weeks, so be sure to get plenty of rest and schedule time for emotional healing.
