A huge cosmic shift takes place this week, as Saturn, the Planet of Challenge, spends its first full week direct in the sign of Pisces, after being retrograde for over four months. All zodiac signs will notice the influence of this transit, and we’re likely to approach the world and our own selves with greater optimism, kindness, patience, and faith in a better tomorrow.
This won’t necessarily happen overnight, as Saturn will still experience a post-shadow period of its retrograde for the rest of the year. But if you find yourself smiling at the little things this week, it’s most likely due to a significant astrological cycle having neared completion. Venus’s entrance into its home sign of Libra on November 8 also serves to lighten up the cosmos considerably.
Meanwhile, Mercury, the Planet of Communication, leaves Scorpio on November 10 and enters fiery Sagittarius for the next two weeks. This counteracts the more introverted energy of Saturn in Pisces by helping infuse dynamic and spontaneous vibes into the cosmos, particularly when it comes to recognising our powers of self-expression.

With your planetary ruler Mercury entering your opposite sign of Sagittarius on November 10, relationships and intimacy will be on your mind this weekend.

Aquarius Sun & Rising:
Congratulations, Aquarius — you’ve made it through Saturn’s first retrograde in Pisces in over 28 years.

Things start to shift for the better now that Saturn is direct at zero degrees Pisces — you’re being gifted a fresh start.
Instead of trying to make practical decisions about your finances, tune into your gut instinct when it comes to deciding whether you’d like to invest, pay off debt, work with a money counsellor, or focus on saving. Saturn’s here to show you that cultivating greater discipline in your finances can be fun and smooth-sailing; it all depends on your perspective and how you choose to go about it.
Once Mercury enters Sagittarius on the 10th, your sector of communication and creativity is activated for the next two weeks.

Your outspokenness will help others open up their own throat chakra, especially when it comes to revolutionary themes, as you are the sign of the revolutionary. Allow yourself to lead the way.
Pisces Sun & Rising:
Pisces, you’re experiencing Saturn’s first week direct in your sign ever since May 2023. You’ll be in the mood to lay low, relax, and take in the downloads from Saturn’s four-and-a-half-month retrograde through your sign. But you’ll also notice that greater responsibilities and expectations are placed upon you now that Saturn is direct, and this may initially feel overwhelming. Your mission is to find ways to set healthy boundaries at work, in your domestic sphere, and also in your social circle.
This week, people may come to you for advice or guidance, but you’re still in the process of figuring out your own path and you may not have the energy to help others as much as they want you to. Learning how to say no, or “not now” will pay off beautifully for you this week, as it’ll help you protect your peace.
With Venus entering Libra on the 8th, your sector of depth, merging, and outside resources is activated for the next four months.
