November Forecast Overview:
Forming favourable (trine) aspects to Mars and Pluto and oppositions to Venus, then Saturn, Nov 6 delivers a full moon in Taurus. If you have been building the right platform, the full moon could bring it to fruition. If you haven’t gotten yourself there yet, this could be a good time to plant your seeds. A full moon in Taurus highlights all matters to do with money, survival and relationship needs, net worth and self worth. If there’s no value in it, nothing further to gain, this full moon will crystallize the facts and make the reality to obvious to ignore.
Mercury enters Scorpio on Nov 8, re-stimulating the degree of the Oct 23 solar eclipse. By Nov 10, it will surpass the ground it lost when it turned retrograde last month. Through Nov 27, (US Thanksgiving), Mercury in Scorpio will keep a sharper focus on the bottom line criteria. This planetary influence prompts a strategic rethink while Mars in Capricorn keeps the focus on getting it under better control.
The mid week of the month is the action week. Nov 9, Venus square Jupiter puts everything on the increase. The big push is on as of Nov 10, when Mars conjoins Pluto in Capricorn. Regarding securing, cementing, building, enforcing, establishing or making it official, it’s a time has come moment. The transiting moon in Cancer can make for an emotional day. When Mars and Pluto join forces in Capricorn, it sets a new structure, contract, government, motivation, or reality into play. It’s a signature for law and military enforcement, and for the implementation of new rules, policies, or legislation. Mars/Pluto brings something of significance to ripening, fruition, or an end. At the same time, the next two-year cementing cycle begins.
The senseless loss of lives in recent times is likely to make Veterans Day remembrances especially poignant this year. Mercury’s trine to Neptune raises the sea of collective emotion/compassion on Nov 11. On the individual note, the energy of the day can be creative and romance. Mercury/Neptune can also leave us vulnerable or susceptible. Pump up your immune system.
On Nov 12, Venus conjoins Saturn in Scorpio (5:02 pm PDT.) Only half an hour later, Mars in Capricorn squares Uranus in Aries. It’s a pressure cooker day. There’s a build up, then release. Venus/Saturn can be a frustration aspect; Mars/Uranus can unhinge or unleash. Stop is immediately replaced by go. Venus/Saturn can produce a finish off, end it, cut off, or deadline day. Something highly significant is uncovered, discovered, or overhauled; expires or meets its demise. Watch for general edginess and market volatility. Perhaps we’ll hear of a bankruptcy. Mars/Uranus can produce the sudden, surprising, shocking, or opportune. To the plus, it can be a redirect it, or new solutions day. Nov 13, the transiting Leo moon trines Uranus and the sun square Neptune. This is suggestive of positive outcomes and more opportunity or options.
Neptune ends its five month retrograde cycle on November 15, an elections day here. On Nov 16, Venus enters Sagittarius and on Nov 16. Both these planetary advances put the budding potentials and the holiday marketing season into full swing. The sun conjoins Saturn in Scorpio on Nov 18 and Mercury does the same on Nov 25. Aim for a finish line regarding plans, negotiations, projects or decisions; both are completion transits. They are also shape and define in terms of important personal matters.
The sun enters Sagittarius on Nov 22. This same day delivers a new moon in Sagittarius, the second of five new moons in a row to occur at zero degrees of the sign. Consider October to February as a recalibration time.
We move to the next stage of our collective and personal healing journey as Chiron in Pisces, retrograde since the summer solstice, turns direct on Nov 24. It’s time to switch gears. Mercury’s conjunction with Saturn on Nov 25, Venus trine Uranus on Nov 26 and the advance of Mercury into Sagittarius are well aligned for the US Thanksgiving celebration.
