Taking charge of your love life is on the schedule this month as the Sun in Scorpio illuminates your 1st House of Personality until November 21. This is a time to put yourself first by making your own needs and desires your priority. Getting in better physical condition increases confidence and helps you to feel more comfortable taking chances. Yet before you push into new territory there's some unfinished business to attend to.
Mental Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio until November 10, which is useful for overcoming misunderstandings. Slow down to think strategically and speak clearly to avoid misunderstandings. If you're stuck in a difficult situation with someone and you don't know what to do, a friend should be helpful because your energetic planet Mars is in Virgo and your 11th House of Friends all month.
The New Moon in Scorpio on November 3 is a signal for making a fresh start. Whether it's a new approach to relationships, altering your appearance or attitude, the more carefully you plan the further you'll get. That's because restraining Saturn conjunct this lunation requires a strong sense of self-control.
If your commitment is firm, add some discipline and a dash of patience and you can achieve your long-term goals. Try to narrow your focus and address one issue at a time to achieve the mastery needed to resolve relationship issues. It's understandable if you're less willing to compromise now, which is fine if that's what it takes to hold your ground.
