Mars is in Scorpio today and the planet is directly opposite Uranus, which is in Taurus. The Moon is also involved as it is conjunct Uranus and opposite Mars. This aspect is thrilling and you might be tempted to do something out of the box. Express.co.uk reveals your star sign reading, astrology and zodiac forecast for November 17.
A Mars Uranus opposition today makes us “act on impulses or take risks”, possibly in a short-sighted way.
Cafe Astrology said: “We tend to challenge situations that make us feel restricted or people if they seem to be trying to hold us back.
“Positively, this can be a time of increased courage to free ourselves from restrictive circumstances or push ourselves to break out of the routine and try new things. Confrontations may help clear the air.”
However, the site warns we should watch for accidents, faux-pas, and mistakes due to haste.
The experts added: “Tempers can flare, and a tendency to take careless risks or jump into premature action is possible.”
The Moon in Taurus is opposite Mars and conjunct Uranus, making this already rebellious aspect more emotional.
Cafe Astrology said: “The Taurus Moon hooks into this unstable energy and as such, we’re more emotionally invested in our rebellions or frustrations.”
However, the Moon’s supportive angles with indulgent Venus and Uranus will empower us to invest in the relationships and activities that make life beautiful.
Tarot.com adds: “While the Taurus Moon’s hard aspects to Mars and restrictive Saturn might make some people scorn any efforts to improve society, blockages could still give way to progress when faced with today’s liberating energy.”
Also today, Jupiter is forming a semi-square to Chiron.
Cafe Astrology explained: “It’s the final of three (previously exact in April and August), and we’re now coming to the end of this theme.
“Under this influence, we crave meaning and understanding, but it can be challenging to align ourselves with a personal philosophy or belief system that truly reflects our core.
“Beliefs and ideas can lead us astray, or we might experience some form of crisis of faith.
“It is essential to look within and come to a greater understanding of what we truly need or believe, rather than following something that doesn’t truly serve our purpose.
“New business endeavours may require a closer look before pushing forward.”
