Are you ready for Sagittarius season? (Plus: Updates on Mercury retrograde + more)

If you have been struggling to take action, get back to yourself lately,  or stay focused on your priorities…

You might want to check in with Mars.

The planet of action has been stretched a bit thin in the sign of Libra since October 4, putting an emphasis on relationships, community, and social time.

Which are not bad things at all. But in Libra’s people-pleasing world, Mars sometimes has trouble saying no, or sticking to its own to-do list. Except rather than slacking, it tries to do it all.

If you’ve been trying to be everything to everyone lately, or you’ve said “yes” more times than you should have, things can start to calm down when Mars enters Scorpio on Tuesday, November 19 at 2:40am.

Mars is powerful here. It’s a time to regain control over your intentions, your schedule, and your energy… to recharge your batteries in Scorpio season’s quieter terrain and reconnect to some of the plans or projects that may have gotten pushed off to the side since early October.

Another factor that can help get things back on track is Mercury stationing direct on Wednesday, November 20. After being retrograde since October 31, the planet of communication, strategy, and ideas is getting ready to move forward.

I have shared before that Mercury retrogrades can be fertile creative times. New ideas, perspectives, or opportunities can present themselves during these periods – if you are paying attention. If you can, take some time to reflect on any breakthroughs, questions, or ideas that have come up for you in the last few weeks.

While it might not have felt like the right time to take action on anything just yet, those thoughts might actually be new windows of opportunity that you can open up in the weeks and months to come.

On Friday, November 22, the Sun enters Sagittarius, bringing Scorpio season to a close for another year. This is another dynamic shift in energy, as we resurface from Scorpio’s intense depths and warm up in Sagittarius’ warm, fiery influence.

As a fire sign, Sagittarius wants to envision, create, and experience. The Three of Wands is supporting this week’s message, asking, “What is your next step? What is on the horizon that you are ready to move towards?”

The pace of life can change towards the end of the end, and any hesitation or distraction you’ve experienced lately can start to lift.

It is all systems go from there on in.

Until next time,
