Hidden Insights: Astrology for the week of 15 November 2018

Very little will be hidden this week as Hidden Insights observes multiple solar aspects to illuminate what was once secret. The Sun joins forces with Jupiter and Mercury, bringing big dreams and clear mental directions. Mercury also makes a harsh square to Mars, which will feel like a fire has been lit within. However, as Mercury is still retrograde, we need to be cautious old wounds and heated arguments resurfacing on Tuesday. Later the same day, Mars carries the energy it took from Mercury and makes a sextile with Saturn.

The celestial baton race playing out between these three planets promises an exciting and active few days, which bring thoughts of grandeur and the energy to back them up. Last week many of us promised to handle more than we could deliver. This week the energy shifts, and we can finally accomplish those seemingly impossible tasks.

Friday and Saturday finish the week off with Venus opposing Uranus. Expect strange encounters, and last minute changes to plans. With the planet of love and the planet of chaos at odds, the weekend promises to not only feel unusual, but also shocking. Socially, we may have a difficult time being nice to one another, despite the rise of holiday vibes. Doing early shopping for the holiday season may not be the best idea, unless it’s done online.

Astro Homework

The two solar conjunctions provide us with a wonderful opportunity to find a new direction, and to nourish the physical body. Spend this week brainstorming about whether you are happy with your life’s direction, what you want to keep, and what you would like to improve. Plans that are made between now and when Mercury goes direct in December will be seen through to the end. This is particularly true for financial goals as the Sun joins Jupiter on Monday.

Aries (21 March — 20 April)

Aries Constellation, image by FreepikFeeling a little restless, Aries? The Sun and Jupiter join forces in your sector of travel and education this week. Over the last month, your attention has been turned inward, and now you feel ready to conquer the world. While you are dreaming big, you will need to put your ideas on the back burner a little longer. An issue with someone from your past sneaks up early in the week, and you need to settle an old debt before you came move forward. Your ruling planet plays messenger between Mercury and Saturn, which helps you realize just how much hard work you have ahead of you. Fortunately, you’ll be able to transform your need for adventure into hard work. Over the weekend your love life comes into focus with Venus, and you can expect an exciting surprise from someone special on Saturday.

Taurus (21 April — 20 May)

Do your best to greet this conflict with the idea that a joint effort is needed to solve the problem. On Thursday you can expect a friend or neighbour to offer you the opportunity to make some extra income, but be cautious about joining any sales teams or pyramid schemes. Starting a new financial venture will be met with a great deal of difficulty. A surprise encounter with a woman on Saturday will push your patience to the limit. If possible, avoid meetings or conversations with the women in your life right now.

Scorpio (21 October — 20 November)
