Venus enters Sagittarius, Scorpio New Moon, Mercury goes Retrograde

Venus enters Sagittarius on Monday November 21. The planet of Relationship and Sociability is usually good in the Warm, Enthusiastic sign of Sagittarius. But Sagittarius can be self-centered; not so open to sacrifice and compromise as true love requires. Venus picks up the trinal aspect of its dispositor, Jupiter, transiting in another Fire Sign, Aries. This combination enhances the Sagittarian quality of Seeking Truth and Honesty. Venus will be in Sagittarius until December 15.
The New Moon will be on Thursday, November 24, @ 8 deg. Scorpio. This marks the beginning of the Lunar Month of Margashiras, named for the nakshatra (lunar sign) of the Full Moon, Mrigrashira, considered auspicious for Travel, Enjoyments, Socializing, Ceremonies. The energy of the lunar month is somewhat marred by the simultaneously occurance of Retrograde Mercury.
Mercury goes Retrograde on Thursday, November 24, @ 26 deg. Scorpio. The planet of Communications, Rational Thinking, Data and Information, Equipment, Business Transactions, and Travel, will be moving "in reverse" from night to night amongst the stars for the next three weeks, until December 14. This situation is well know for producing annoyance due to misunderstandings, delayed communications, and equipment scew-ups. Best to anticipate the problems by checking and re-checking that the message got through, that what was intended was what got heard, etc. This Mercury Retrograde period has additional problems due to the square (90 deg) aspect of Mars, the planet of Impatience and Anger, resulting in Misunderstandings progressing easily into Arguments and Conflict. Careful to keep Patience and not dive into things too quickly.
