A week that kicks off with Halloween, which leads into Día de Los Muertos, an exciting new moon, and sign shifts for messenger Mercury and sweet Venus can't help but be a week that's both magical and game-changing.

A sweet trine between messenger Mercury and go-big-or-go-home Jupiter give Halloween evening a super-party vibe (pfft, work the next day be damned!). And the end of the week could be packed with just as many surprises and sweets given Thursday, November 4's new moon in Scorpio, which opposes electrifying Uranus, bringing a blast of excitable energy, nervousness, and shake-ups galore. On Friday, November 5, relationship-oriented Venus will move from jovial Sagittarius into cool, controlled, grounded Capricorn. Thanks to a retrograde from Sunday, December 19 to Saturday, January 29, it'll be in the industrious cardinal earth sign until Saturday, March 5. The same day, Mercury finally leaves Libra for Scorpio, where it'll bring a more intense, razor-focused, and power-seeking vibe to communication until Wednesday, November 24.
