Love just got a friendly makeover as Venus, the planet of love and beauty, has changed costume into something more sociable. Freedom-loving Sagittarius flavors all things amore for the next month, bringing in the silly season early and driving Xmas spending, so watch those inconsequentials, preseason reindeer ears, and too-easy payment options. Focus instead on friendship and belonging to cocreate a life you love! Read on to discover what’s in store for your sign during the week of November 4 through November 10, 2019, and double down by getting to know your rising sign.
Aries | Aries rising
Although you’re much more of a straight-talking, “see it, want it, go get it” kind of personality, consider your overarching philosophy on love. Conversations about, and tapping into your vision for, all things amore will be pleasantly satisfying this week. As Venus is gracing your zone of travel, study, and teaching, I suggest you do any or all of the above. If it involves female or metro friends, travel to a place that inspires love or study something that brings you pleasure. As Mercury backspins in your zone of sex, it’s a great time to review the underpinnings of your mutual investments. What needs adjustment? Consider what you’re prepared to accept, what you contribute, and your language of love in general. Are you authentically communicating your deeper needs, and having them met? And what exactly are they?
Taurus | Taurus rising
The planet of love is in your zone of sex and other people’s money—sounds like a come-hither month ahead for you, Taurus! You benefit from going straight for the pleasure principle in your comings and goings with others, so don’t beat around the bush. Call it if you see it. Loans, a bonus, or cash injections thanks to a relative or caring confidant could be in the cards. Mercury retrograde in your zone of other people suggests you say “No, not yet” to partnership proposals from business to marriage. Avoid signing contracts for three weeks if possible. If you absolutely can’t, read thoroughly and have it proofed by an expert. Friday is a power day, as there’s a special connection between your partnership and friendships, so reach out—but check the fine print.
Gemini | Gemini rising
Make the most of the pleasure principle in your partnership zone by letting those close to you know how much you adore them. All-equal one-on-ones will spark joy, so reach out to form a partnership if you’re feeling inspired by someone. This is a great time to expand your one-on-ones, so don’t let anyone else’s insecurities hem you in. Sometimes more is better, and your new best friend could be waiting just beyond the next “Hi, how are you?” You thrive on sociability, and for this entire month, variety is the spice of life. If you’re partnered—and committed—reassure bae of your loyalty, and that they are safe. Don’t be tied down too soon if you’re not.
Cancer | Cancer rising
As Venus, the planet of love and beauty, is in your zone of work and health routines, you’ll benefit from self-care on the daily. You’ll generally see what you expect to, so set yourself up for a win. Pick some flowers and put them by your door to remind yourself every time you leave your coveted shell that the world is full of beauty. You’re extra charming at work and may make a bonus thanks to extra sales, so don’t be backward in coming forward. Work relationships generally are blessed; reach out if you feel some resonance. Health will benefit from positive affirmations of love and gratitude for your body, how beautiful it is, and how much you appreciate everything you are able to enjoy because of it. Notice the inner glow you feel in return.
Leo | Leo rising
The planet of love is in your romance zone; make plans for fun and intimacy, and enjoy the follow-through. Consider broadening your usual dating scenarios with some action, adventure, and the great outdoors—get out and about. Do something new, whether it’s with friends, your partner, or a date. If you really need to reset and let life love you up, this is your chance to make it happen by accepting invitations as well as taking the initiative and issuing them. What activities inspire you and put the wind in your sails? Which people, places, or faces? What brings you joy? Okay, now go do that. Pleasure will come from getting creative as well as spending on things that make you happy or even that support your creative interests. But don’t blow the budget or go overboard on retail therapy.
Virgo | Virgo rising
Go with inspiration if you’re ready to add beauty to your home as Venus moves in for the next month. Expand by adding some color or a few exotic touches. Whether you feel like minimal or major redecorating, go with it. You may literally invite love into your home, so spend some extra time in your little lap of luxury to make it a sanctuary that reflects your worth. Set an example with your sense of style, as it lets others know you value yourself and that they need to value you and your space as well. While you often like your solitude, it’s time to light up your home and hearth with laughter and stories. Extend your bon amis by hosting some small gatherings; invite your favorites over for a healthy brunch, decadent afternoon tea, or home-cooked dinner.
Libra | Libra rising
Your local environment is the zone most likely to spark joy this month, so get out and sample treats offered by your neighborhood. Connect with people you interact with yet tend not to notice, like your barista, the baker, people you know simply due to proximity. You’re bound to be surprised by some of their stories, and perhaps inspired as well. Short courses are favored—they’ll not only expand your mind, but you’re likely to enjoy the new relationships you make there. Whether in person or digitally, take time to connect with your siblings. If things have been strained, this could be a valuable time to reconnect and mend bridges.
Scorpio | Scorpio rising
Your finances could expand as Venus, the planet of money, glides into this zone. You’ll be motivated to make more income and may well come up with some bright ideas over the next few months, so set your intentions for attracting opportunity, ideas, and people that can assist. Look at your core values and see how you can amplify and build on them in your work or business. Also, note how your current income and spending are related to or defined by your highest values. If anything is out of alignment or you can be more specific about where your money goes, changes you make will bring you more freedom. You’ll be feeling generous, so decide on a budget and stick to it before you start spending on others.
Sagittarius | Sagittarius rising
As Venus, the planet of love and beauty, is in your sign, you’ll find you’re extra charming this month, so don’t hold back on winning friends and influencing people. This is always a great time for any photo shoots if you need to update. Since Venus is about value, you’ll benefit from the surge of confidence as others notice what you bring to the table. Enjoy the extra attention and appreciation while things are on your terms and just the way you like it this month. For an extra boost, ask friends what they value most about you, tally it up, and write out the top three to keep in your feel-good file for a rainy day. Burn some sage or sprinkle salt to zen up your home zone, then set intentions for clearing out any stagnant energy.
Capricorn | Capricorn rising
Balance your busy life with inner harmony by spending quiet time in nature. Meditate, contemplate, or read a book, on a rock, with a view. To make your heart sing, rewild with a trek, or glamping in nature. If you’re city-bound, visit your local gardens. Try a new form of meditation; be open to something exotic or a little foreign. The novelty of different styles will help keep your awareness in the present because you don’t have a preconditioned expectation. Once you’re used to a simple style, your mind may start to wander again; expanding your repertoire and your experience is the key. There’s so much available at the tap of an app now, so trial a variety of light versions before you buy.
Aquarius | Aquarius rising
You’re one of the most people-oriented signs of the zodiac, so this is a great week for you as your friendship zone hosts Venus, the planet of relating, beauty, and love. Expect more invitations to come your way, and get out to group events that involve the arts. A group exhibition, especially one with a focus on diversity, will bring you joy and new connections. Make sure you catch up with lots of friends, as it promises to be special. You’re at your most charming when you’ve got your socialite hat on, so reach out to new people that spark your inspiration. Your money zone and work zone ping later in the week; set your intentions to make the most of an opportunity when it presents. Base your ability to shine on the ideals you value most.
Pisces | Pisces rising
Work feels a lot friendlier this week, and your relationship base is set to expand. Reach out to new connections that feel right, and be open to invitations and collabs. Utilize the extra charm of Venus in this zone to tee up meetings and get your big ideas across the line. If you’re feeling inspired, you’ll ultimately inspire others and bring them around to your way of doing things. This is a good time to tune into the beauty and design principle by working on your public image. Renew your headshots, freshen online content, or tweak your branding. Adding inspiration, color, and a little exoticism will go a long way. It doesn’t need to be kaftans from the ’70s, but don’t be afraid to try something bright and throw in some extra spin. Work-related travel may be beneficial; say yes if opportunity knocks.
