Yours is the sign of relationships. It's about meeting others halfway and accommodating and compromising to maintain harmony. Now, however, you are in the second stage of partnership as the Sun plunged into passionate Scorpio late last month and continues there until November 21. This sign is less concerned with appearing calm and staying peaceful than in going deeper toward intimacy and intense sharing.
Peeling back layers of politeness to tap into your desires may not be easy, but it is essential for nourishing a relationship. If you're single and looking, it's about recognizing and acknowledging what you want, what you're willing to pay for it (energetically), and what you do not want. These kinds of calculations may not seem romantic, but they lay the groundwork for successful unions.
Taking a less idealistic approach to relationships also makes sense when your normally romantic ruling planet Venus marches into organized Capricorn on November 5. This transit occurs in your 4th House of Roots, reminding you that putting your own life into order is a vital step toward more fulfilling alliances. Self-discipline and commitment to taking care of personal matters gives you strength and the power to battle harder for yourself.
Venus runs into a buzz saw of outer planet activity, however, when she squares revolutionary Uranus on November 14 and joins provocative Pluto the following day. This could be a time of surprises, uncertainty and intensity, although these radical shifts can lead to breakthroughs in attitude and circumstances, so be flexible and ride the waves of change instead of fighting them.
