When you see an ambitious figure with a passionate drive and a life that seem to come together, what do you see? Do you identify yourself with the person, or is that how you aspire to be? If it’s the latter, it’s because we don’t realize what kind of future we’re aiming since we enjoy letting our mind roam free in a sea of possibility. We often ignore the fact that unless we take charge of our own ship, it’s hard to determine where we should go from here. Our parents tell us that we can be anything if we’re brave enough to dream, but they often don’t tell us how we can get there. Right?
This week we are going to be surprised with not one, but three planetary shifts which affect different areas in our life. But let’s focus on your goals/career first here and I will discuss deeper about love/relationship next week. Mars is heading to Aquarius on November 10th, while Venus curls up to Capricorn on the 12th, followed by Mercury’s trip to Sagittarius the next day.
So, what can we learn from here? That every single step we take and choices we made in our life matters. It determines how our love life, career, and personal finance unfold. As the closest planet to the earth, Mercury’s transit in Sagittarius determines our communication style, while Mars’ movement affects our drive in achieving our goal. With a combination of intellectual yet optimistic signs (Sagittarius and Aquarius), we will be driven to run to the finish line with our head filled to the brim with innovative ideas and the eagerness to learn, but we will stumble across various difficulties when it comes to materializing these ideas and plans. It kind of sounds like when Donald Trump said that he had a “great plan” and when he promised to make everything “YUGE” and “great again," but he cannot tell exactly how he will do it (Check out his debate videos).
(Sorry, US election is coming up tomorrow and I just can’t help myself.)
"But what about Venus?”, you might ask. “Isn’t it enough that Venus is in the wisest sign of all (Capricorn)?” Venus in Capricorn captures the importance of keeping your cool while you deal with your inner turmoil because you don’t want to ruin your relationship with those around you. As a planet of money, this transit indicates how you can keep your revenue stream afloat. It’s like when your pants got caught on fire but you look completely fine in front of customers because you still have to flip burgers for a living.
Both Sagittarius and Aquarius are also social signs, which highlights the importance of keeping your professional relationship close. Don’t let them know that you don’t know what you’re doing to buy you some time – because Mercury in Sagittarius is not known for mincing words. Don’t let the inconvenient truth slip from your tongue. I mean, it happens to the best of us too, it doesn’t mean you’re incompetent. You just need to collect your scattered thoughts and get it together once you have enough time for yourself.
This week is the perfect time to come up with ideas and solution, but not to execute it. If you’re in the process of planning a new business or a new project, enjoy the perks of flight of ideas that comes with the three planetary transitions. Build a strong base of network that will sustain your project and come up with the best elevator pitch ever, even though you still don’t have the answer to some of your problems. Sell your ideas as much as you can! Well, I’ll say, fake it till you make it! ;)

Don’t worry about not getting the opportunity to shine, Scorpio. You still have plenty of time to showcase your talent, but now is not the time to stand alone. Collect those who have always been supportive of you and who make your own tribe. Whether it’s for your career, or to heal a broken heart, now is the time for you to be surrounded by a great support system that will help you maximize your potential. You may look cold on the outside, but you also have a big heart that will only open when you’re with the right people. If you can’t find like-minded people in your area, always be open to join a Facebook group or any other community forums that thrive on providing support for its members.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
If you just got a really good news, congrats! But (there’s a but) try to remain vigilant. You’ve been waiting for this lucky chance that you almost decide to swallow it whole. Pay attention to the pros and cons and try not to get cheated. Ask your loved ones to help you assess this golden opportunity. Make sure you get the best deal, way better than everyone in the room. Godspeed!
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Ace of Swords
You don’t have to convince other people that you’re always right, because: A. You can’t control everyone. B. Someone will always disagree with you. And maybe C. We’re not perfect? Okay, you get the point. Maybe you can try once, but if it doesn’t work out, be the bigger person, thank them for their time, and walk away. Forcing yourself to argue with them further will only frustrate you.
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Queen of Cups
This week your feelings will be unusually intensified, Aquarius. How you feel about another person or an issue may be too overwhelming for you. Please don’t fight it anymore. Allow your subconscious to tell you how you feel because the recent events may have triggered an emotion from your past. Accept the pain and make peace with it if you can, because we can’t change what’s done.
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Queen of Wands
To let go of an issue is not a sign of defeat, Pisces. Sometimes, rather than arguing to no end, it’s better to accept, forgive, and forget. You understand that some parts of the argument are your fault, but to admit it and decide to work on it, feels like a heavy toll on you. Well, it doesn’t have to if you don’t think of it as a personal attack, but more as a constructive criticism.
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Live life like there’s no tomorrow, Aries! Enjoy the company of your friends and family this upcoming weekend and plan a nice getaway with them. Does travelling to exotic destinations like the Komodo Islands sounds good to you? Whichever getaway you choose, don’t let stress bother you. At least not now. If anything, you can always rely on your friends and siblings for a quick pick-me-up.
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
This week is a journey to unravel new things about yourself. It’s time to get to know the real and raw version of you. Has there been anything that you’ve always curious about? What are your hidden hopes and fears? Let’s admit it. We are not perfect. We may not like a few things about us, but it still makes us who we are, regardless. Are you ready to make peace with yourself?
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Knight of Swords
Hold up, Gemini! You’ve been heading in the wrong direction! If anyone tells you to take a job, date a person, or act a certain way, please don’t take it literally. I am sure they mean well, but you need to know what’s best for you because you’re the one who's living your life. So, why don’t you take their advice into your consideration first and make your own choice from there?
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Don’t worry, Cancer. Worrying does not take away troubles, especially if the key to your problem does not lie in your hands. If you don’t get the audition, or the job that you want, or the person you love, it might be for the best. I’m sure the Universe has another plan waiting for you behind these tragic revelations. At least you have put your best effort, right? Chin up, buttercup!
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Eight of Disks - Prudence
Like a fully bloomed spring flower, this dearest Leo is ready to take on whatever challenge in front of you. Do consider taking a big leap of faith with an unusual approach. You’ve been playing safe for a while it’s time to spice things up. It’s like playing truth or dare, but with a higher stake and a bigger opportunity to win. I dare you to ask for a raise tomorrow. Are you game?
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Nine of Disks - Gain
Give yourself some time to rest this week, Virgo. Thanks to your stress level, your head feels like you’re about to explode. Slow down on your workload, go outside, and maybe get a relaxing Thai massage. Turn off your phone for the weekend for a short digital detox. You can always reply to the emails later once your holiday is over. Remember, the star of the week is you, not your boss.
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Don’t tell yourself what you can or can't do, Libra. There are a lot of opportunities that you have missed because you think you’re not cut out for the challenge. You are always out of the box, but now it’s time to step out a little bit further. Check some long-term goals on your to-do list this week and prepare to make some mistakes. First time won’t be easy, but have faith!
