Even though you expect honesty from others, it can be difficult for you to express that same level of integrity unless you do the work to understand your motivations.
Now, as the Full Moon manifests in your 7th house, you see the result of that intention. Your partners—be they romantic, professional, or collaborative, will step up to meet you in the many plans you have put in place.

Venus square Neptune on November 13th points to some trouble at home—be aware that there may be some issues with your family now.

The Full Moon in Taurus on November 12th brings a renewed connection with your imagination, creativity, and excitement.

Venus is square Neptune on November 13th, so your self-critique may be activated at the slightest hint of criticism or rejection from others. Be careful about the messages you integrate now. It is up to you to listen to your own self-critique or talk about your self-doubt and let it pass.
Be careful this week, as some steps you’ve been planning to take may not go according to your plans. The Full Moon in Taurus on November 12th brings the focus back to your home, family, and root. If you’ve been spending a lot of time traveling, working on projects, or getting back into school, the amount of energy you’ve been spending out of the house means that some issues at home haven’t been taken care of.

This will be a busy week as the Full Moon in Taurus on November 13th centers the need for clear communication and strong boundaries. Your work responsibilities pile up and you have to be careful about what you agree to take on now. What may seem like a wonderful opportunity for personal advancement may be nothing more than busy work.
There is a danger in getting too overwhelmed by everything you’ve taken on and imploding from the stress, or projecting your frustration onto someone you care about. Care about yourself enough first that you never reach this point. You have an opportunity to clearly define what you’re up for the day before the Full Moon, on November 12th, when Mars is sextile Jupiter.
Make sure that the project you take on in this time is aligned with your strengths, and not your ambitions. You could be taking on much more than you can reasonably deliver if your goal is to impress someone else, or generate as much wealth as you can as quickly as possible. The wider view, one that incorporates the development of your heart and intuition, is necessary.
