After a nerve-stretching October with two powerful eclipses, this month will be marginally more settled, albeit with a couple of glitches along the way. The emotionally intense Scorpio Sun for three weeks will be in an expansive mood early on, perhaps too much so. Over confidence will need to be reined in. Luckily Venus moving into diplomatic, fair-minded Libra from the 8th will smooth down a few rough edges. Though a spot of Uranian turbulence around the 11th and 13th may bring sudden surprises and upsets. Opening up to the possibility of change will help to ease tensions and not over reacting to challenges. Mars continues to stay in determined, dare-I-say-it vengeful Scorpio until the 24th which can accomplish a good deal but lacks tolerance.
Another sticky few days between the 22nd and 25th could bring setbacks, delays or even accidents – so patience will be called for as well as caution. Though it won’t be anything out of the ordinary.
The Sagittarius Sun and Mars in the final days will bring a colourful mood and more enthusiasm.
