Daily General Horoscopes - Wednesday 20 November
Mars and Mercury not only call for two very different approaches today but as they are both focused on money matters, this could create some frustration and definitely a call for balance. In his first full day in your financial sector, Mars wants to make things happen now, while in his last full day in retrograde motion here Mercury wants to stay in the moment. With one foot on the brake and another on the gas, this does call for caution, but forced to wait until the lights turn green tomorrow this guards against acting in haste.
A combination of Mars leaving your busy work sector yesterday and the Moon returning to a playful part of your chart today sees a significant shift in focus today. Mars has left behind plenty of momentum and support on the job front but you have reached a point where you are now running a marathon and not a sprint. Playful lunar vibes bring the perfect reminder, at the perfect time that life can't be all work and no play. This is the Moon's first visit since the last planet left so this might be something you need reminding of.
Right in the middle of the working week you have a dilemma on the job front or at least a balancing act. As Mars spends his first full day in your busy work sector in two years he is ready from the get go to make things happen, wanting you to put everything you have into everything you do. Yet in his last full day in retrograde motion here Mercury has the brakes on and when you do act in haste you could make mistakes. With one foot on the brake and another on the gas, the best option is to wait until the lights turn green tomorrow.
Life is a little surreal at the moment, with different boxes with very different influences in play. In one of those boxes you have the Moon forming a friendly aspect to planets on the job and career fronts, as it wraps up its monthly visit to your income sector. This is creating a boost in confidence and insight across the income, work and career fronts. In another box you have Mars spending his first full day in a playful part of your chart while Mercury spends his last full day in retrograde motion here, together influencing the past, present and future.
The Moon is having a stunning day, forming some friendly aspects to planets on the playful and adventurous fronts in its final hours in Leo, then going on to form friendly aspects to planets on the job and career fronts, when it returns to your income sector. Yet it is not a case of abandoning one influence in order to embrace the next but appreciating that this is insight into the broad landscape that is your life. There is no planetary activity in Leo or your income sector, with the Moon giving a unique insight into forces that have been and will remain in play.
The Moon not only returns to Virgo today but for its first visit since the last planet left, making this a valuable chance to check in. Now that we are in the last six weeks of the year and there are a lot of things coming together across a number of areas of your life, this will give you deeper insight. In the meantime, with Mercury in his last full day in retrograde motion, a day notorious for mixed messages, misunderstandings and mistakes, being able to trust your instincts will be a real advantage.
Mars' departure from Libra yesterday has been a win/win for you, with positives all round. Mars has left you with a clear sense of what excites you and the motivation to embrace the journey that this new two year Mars cycle will take you on. With Juno, queen of commitment remaining in Libra for another 10 months, staying on track and motivated won't be a problem. Yet Mars' departure has also taken the pressure off you and your relationships and as you adjust to that, it might only now start to dawn on you that it had been there in the first place.
In the final days of your birthday month, Mars' return to Scorpio yesterday has given you your second wind and both the energy and the hot headed enthusiasm to throw yourself into the things that excite you. The problem is, in his last full day in retrograde motion here Mercury has the brakes on and in all that you do, there is a need to measure twice and cut once. Yet while this means having one foot on the gas and another on the brake, until the lights turn green tomorrow this will guard against rushing into things prematurely.
This could be a stop/start kind of day, when you have able to motivate yourself to stay focused and get things done, only to find that you are pulled back to a state of inertia. Key to riding these waves is not to make judgements for what you are experiencing is a double pull, both from having Mars in his first full day in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and Mercury in his last full day in retrograde motion here. That pull toward inertia is coming from Mercury and Mars, while the get up and go is coming from Venus and Jupiter, who already in Sagittarius are ready to move things forward.
There is more to the Moon's return to an adventurous part of your chart today than a chance to embrace a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure in the middle of a working week. This is the Moon's first visit since the last planet left, so is a reminder that the spirit of adventure is still there, just a day after Mars left your career sector and any professional urgency is dialling back. However, even more important is the Moon's friendly aspect to planets in Capricorn, just before you are set to embark on an exciting new personal journey.
Things get serious on the professional front as there is an overlapping of the forces that will bring this professional year home. Just three days before the Sun is due to leave your career sector and a day before Mercury's direct turn will turn the lights green, Mars is spending his first full day here. Mars will want things to happen from the get go, but with Mercury at a standing during his last full day in retrograde motion things aren't moving. Yet with one foot on the brake and another on the gas, when the lights turn green tomorrow you will be ready to move forward.
This is the kind of day that is the perfect microcosm of what you can expect from the rest of the year. A combination of factors is highlighting all the different areas of your life that are becoming active and at the same time highlights the variety. There is a new passion for adventure in the air, just as the Moon is highlighting the different factors in play across the income, work and career fronts. Yet there are also positive conditions for communication, friendship and relationship building.
