AUDIO VERSION: November 23

Hello, everyone.

This week is upbeat and lively, with Venus, the planet of relating and happiness in the spotlight and Mercury, communications, also active.  It’s a perfect planetary line-up for the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday and the Christian Advent season beginning next Sunday.

Monday

With Venus square Jupiter on Monday, you’re likely to feel generous, even extravagant.  Be open to opportunity but stay aware of the emotional undertones of the day.  There could be a snake in the grass – don’t let your high spirits hide it from you.  Wait until tomorrow to form new alliances.

Tuesday

This is the day to implement a new idea, especially one born of rational discussion and cooperation.  With the Sun sextile Saturn, wisdom rules the day and obstacles can be overcome.  If you run into limiting circumstances, you can trust the outcome will be successful if you persevere.

Wednesday is another exciting Venus day as it trines Uranus.  This aspect brings artistic innovation and creativity.  This is a day to connect with others, even globally.  Collaboration leads to financial wins today.

Thursday

Happy U.S. Thanksgiving Day!  Early in the day Mercury trines Mars giving a dramatic flair to your communications.  Lively conversations and interactions will fuel the day.  You can make rapid progress on a cherished idea today.

Later in the day Venus squares Neptune.  While this aspect has a reputation for deceptive fantasy, if you are celebrating the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday it can support heartfelt affection for your family and community.

Sunday

Mercury sextiles Jupiter today which is a lovely aspect for the advent of the Christian Christmas season.   Through connection with your neighbors and friends you can formulate a philosophical long-term view, infused with wisdom.

Have a lovely week and as always, let me know how it unfolds.
