There's little chance of sliding past emotional issues in relationships this month. The Sun is in intimate Scorpio and your 8th House of Deep Sharing until November 21, attracting intense individuals who can demand more than you want to give.
But it's also going to be a challenge to escape the complexities of being with someone or seeking a new partner, because mental Mercury is also in Scorpio all month. This takes conversations far beyond chitchat and can easily turn what you expect to be a simple discussion into a profound analysis of needs, fears and other highly personal issues.
Mercury is retrograde until November 10, providing opportunities to clean up old misunderstandings and pulling you back to a person or a subject you thought was behind you.
Mars, your energetic ruling planet, prepares you to deal with details as it occupies precise Virgo in your 6th House of Systems. This transit might put a damper on your enthusiasm and throttle down your desire for freedom, yet it's perfect for hammering out the little issues that get in the way of a successful relationship.
The idea that love is something you have to work for is reinforced when amorous Venus enters businesslike Capricorn on November 5. This passage occurs in your 10th House of Career, making you more attractive when you're demonstrating your professional skills. However, power struggles and battles for control are also possible -- and these are not games you like to play. The choice, then, is to engage with these complex concerns or to go it alone for now.
