Interested in an audio version? On the last Wednesday of each month I talk about the month ahead on Guiding Stars, Healthy Life.net radio. Please check out the archived radio podcast of November’s forecasts – it is posted under the podcast link above…
Reality can’t help but continue intense with Uranus square Pluto bringing us to the second planetary peak of 2013. Nov 1 delivers the fourth out of seven alignments spanning 2012 – 2015.
The previous Uranus/Pluto alignment occurred on May 20 2013. It instigated a number of political scandals in Canada – chief among them were the Duffy Senate Scandal and the search for an alleged video of Toronto’s Rob Ford using crack cocaine. Finishing a six month mission, Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield, the first spaceman to tweet from outer space, landed back on terra firma. In the USA, Obama was hit two-fold with damage control – regarding the tax scrutiny of the Tea Party and the avalanche caused by NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden. Exactly on the Uranus/Pluto alignment, May 20, Snowden avoided capture by hightailing it to China. In other news, there was a killer tornado in Texas, a baby in China flushed down a toilet was rescued from a sewer pipe, and 3 Oklahoma women held captive for ten years gained their freedom.
The Duffy Senate Scandal continues, as does the NSA fall-out. On Oct 30, the video of Rob Ford became no longer alleged, but found. Hopefully it isn’t so scandalous for you, but think back and perhaps you’ll see a correlation between what was happening for you in the spring/early summer and what is occurring for you now.
It’s an evolution and a process, so there may or may not be a sudden event in your life when an exact Uranus/Pluto alignment occurs. Then again, if were to strike a sudden flint, this Nov 1st alignment, which precedes the solar eclipse by just 48 hours, could be the one that does it. Also on Nov 1, Mercury retrograde and the sun conjoin. This is the informing peak of the Mercury retrograde cycle. On this same day, Mercury forms opportune alignments (the sextile aspect) with Mars in the morning and Pluto in the afternoon.
Moving swiftly from an annual to a total, Nov 3 delivers a rare hybrid solar eclipse at 11 Scorpio. It will be visible from the eastern coast of North America to Europe and the Middle East. The main eclipse path travels over equatorial Africa (Gabon, Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia). Congo has recently been in the news for a significant coup made in the war against the rebels.
To demonstrate how an eclipse continues to reverberate over time, note that the last time a solar eclipse at 11 Scorpio occurred was in 1994 and that Israel has just released the first 26 of 104 Palestinian prisoners who have been held captive all that time. Again, think back. Was there something significant happening in your life at that time? Perhaps you will see a full circle relevancy to where you are now. With so much Scorpio concentration, what’s on the forward thrust is likely to be multi-tiered and complex. One thing dovetails on another, one puzzle piece found leads to another falling into place. This eclipse is also a re-stimulation and/or a resuming influence for what was interrupted, or was building in pressure or priority (crowding you in, plaguing you, or stalling out) last February.
Both Mercury retrograde and Saturn in Scorpio are feature contributors to the solar eclipse. Whether young (Mercury), or of an age (Saturn), these planets are suggestive of a key individual serving as a catalyst. The individual can be a friend, sibling, colleague or agent, or they could be a parent, mentor, boss, official, professional advisor, the one in authority, the one calling the shot. Mercury and Saturn are currently working through a two month process, program, or crystallization piece. The beginning of this cycle dovetailed with the US government shut-down at the start of October.
Just hours before the eclipse, Ceres advances out of Virgo and into Libra. Ceres signals a harvesting and/or a seeding time of added potency. Most likely it is a combination of both. Venus, trekking out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn on Nov 5, continues to build a dynamic (square) aspect to Ceres through Nov 6. Watch for the tension and/or eventfulness to continue in the days following the eclipse. Venus is particular potent as it is the ruler of the south node (one half of the karmic axis) and travelling out bounds through the beginning of Dec. Finances, relationships, and survival issues are up for review and development. A sense of karma or destiny can be readily apparent. Today’s happenings can be a repeat of some other place and time, but the bigger picture intention of the stars is to move it in a new direction.
Also on Nov 6, the sun conjoins Saturn, and Jupiter begins retrograde. Watch for a significant shift regarding growth, momentum, or energy. It can be a day of endings, conclusions, completion, finality, toning it down, goal reaching, or results.
Mercury retrograde ends on Nov 10. There’s a lot of planetary activity in the week that follows so this should prove to be a significant week for moving it forward. Nov 14 and 15, Venus will re-stimulate Uranus/Pluto. Nov 17 delivers a Taurus full moon. It’s another peak time for finances and relationships, for working it out, for getting it settled and/or for taking a plunge. The last week of the month Mercury/Saturn completes a two month processing cycle, while Mercury/Jupiter picks up where it left off when Mercury turned retrograde on Oct 21. Mercury/Jupiter shifts our attention from back to forward, to the holidays, and to the next page, to the promise and hope that lies ahead,

Dates of note: the entire month..
ARIES (March 21- April 19)
Aries born March 28 to 30 have been taking a direct hit from the Uranus/Pluto transit for the past two years. Aries born prior to this date have surpassed the main thrust, while Aries born after this date have more to look forward to in the years to come. Still, no one escapes it. We are all subjected to it. Your present confrontation with existing reality is a wager of a lifetime. It’s an opportunity to be more authentically you; to express more, risk more; to create and to gain more than ever before. By the time the transit has spent itself, you can find yourself on an altered career path, in a completely restructured life, and getting acquainted with a whole new you. This “it” moment also puts you on a cutting edge/breakthrough edge regarding a long running karmic pattern.
The solar eclipse of Nov 3 signals an especially potent staging, choice-point, and/or rebirth time is at hand. A key person, perhaps a lover, sibling, friend, advisor, agent, competitor, or mentor, can be an instrumental messenger, catalyst, or bridge builder. The eclipse signals new considerations and a dynamic forward thrust for matters to do with finances, career, an intimate relationship, education, a writing project or personal ambition. Be reminded that the eclipse may produce an event in the here and now, but that it will also continue to create significant impact and reformulate the course of your life for a length of time to come. Look to the end of January for your next launch-point or sharp corner turn.
Mercury in Scorpio will end retrograde on Nov 10, but it will continue in Scorpio until Dec 4. The cycle places added emphasis on finances, intimate relationships and needs, sexuality, one’s inner psychology, drives, ambitions, compulsions, and addictions.
On Nov 25, Mercury and Saturn complete a two month shaping and crystallizing time. On Nov 27, Mercury trines Jupiter, to pick up the dialogue that has been waylaid since Oct 21, when Mercury began retrograde. Both these planetary pairings are productive prompts. By this point, you should have something substantial behind you, something substantial in your hand, and something substantial to aim for.
TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)
Mercury retrograde, Saturn, and the solar eclipse in Scorpio steep you in the thick of a sweeping transformation. It is occurring out there and it’s happening on the inside too. This is your opportunity to confront what’s standing right in front of you, and to do it with singular focus and determination. Reality is forging a whole new look. The planetary concentration in Scorpio can be akin to having laser eye surgery.
The first of the month can thrust you into something new, perhaps surprisingly, or suddenly so. Whatever threshold you cross, recognize that it is likely to mark a definitive line in the sand, a point of no return. You can’t turn back or take it back.
As is typical of Mercury retrograde, you can reconnect with people who have had (and still have) a significant influence on your life. Your relationship with an intimate partner, present or past, can be also an attention getter. You can revisit issues of betrayal, trust, obsession, sexuality, compulsive behaviours, undermining ways of relating, addictions, etc. A financial or legal entanglement could also be of added challenge now. The days preceding the full moon in Taurus on Nov 17 can be a monumental turnaround or overhaul time. Mercury’s alignment with Saturn on Nov 25 brings you to a finish line, a conclusion, and a more wizened perspective. Depending on the path you have been traveling, this transit can deliver results, reward, or consequences. Mercury’s trine to Jupiter on Nov 27 can see you make better mileage. You should end the month with better than you began with
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
It seems you have your work cut out for you. November’s stars may force the envelope, but they are also offering you opportunity. Get it done and out of the way, and make room for tomorrow/your future. It is not only a good time, it is an essential time to renovate, and to work on improvements in all areas – i.e. home, family, work, skill set, education, finances, health, attitude. Of course, while Mercury continues in retrograde (to Nov 10) the unexpected can get the better of you financially, emotionally, or health-wise. If you need to invest or to make important decisions, try to pad it with extra safeguard provisions, to ensure there is a return-it policy, or to have a backup plan ready just in case.
The solar eclipse of Nov 3 suggests new work, a health regime, financial strategy or new ambition can be the “it” ticket. A revised schedule could spell improvement too. This eclipse could necessitate medical testing, or even surgery. What makes you tick? What makes them tick? Where did that come from? Where did I come from? You can find yourself consumed with investigation, research, probing, delving deeper. This eclipse can also be the prompt that makes you confront self-undermining, addictions, inner demons, issues of empowerment, loss of power or passion, etc. A family member, perhaps a parent, could claim more attention too. The eclipse can bring insurance, inheritance, parenting, birth, legacies, and end of life matters to the foreground. The end of November can end a wait, a trial run, a contract, or training program, or bring some other important matter to a finish line or a crystallization point. At the same time, Mercury trine Jupiter increases prospects, choice, earnings, opportunities, and avenues.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
Regarding matters of health, wealth, heart, or fresh conquest, the Scorpio solar eclipse can encourage, empower, and revitalize you. Of course everything comes with a price, especially given the intensity and complexity of the current stellar backdrop. Mercury retrograde can produce a significant recall, repeat, or re-visitation. Watch for news or for someone to be a key catalyst for what comes next.
Regarding your career, a contract, dealings with authority, a professional partnership, or committed relationship, Uranus/Pluto can breakdown a wall, a ceiling, or a mindset.
You’ll find yourself on a faster trajectory from this point forward.
The Uranus/Pluto transit will be of greater impact if your birthday falls on or near July 1. It is stirring up a colossal political scandal for Canada (born on July 1) and Steven Harper’s government. I don’t think we’ve seen anything like it before.
The solar eclipse is an especially powerful catalyst for those born on or around July 3. (Yes, the USA will also feel the blast. The government is still on a deadline to resolve its financial problem. Obama care and oil pipeline issues are still political hotbeds.) The two events tied together create a double whammy effect for the birthdays just mentioned.
Venus enters Capricorn on Nov 5. Due to her retrograde cycle Dec 22 to Jan 31, Venus will tenant Capricorn until the start of March. The transit gives you more time to develop a better relationship with a parent, boss, or authority figure. It can help you to gain a better professional reputation, to become known as someone of rank or significance in your chosen field. It is also one that increases career and financial prospects. Venus in Capricorn puts added priority on personal and professional relationships, commitments and contracts. Venus can see you formalize an existing relationship, set up a new one, or it can draw out an ending or goodbye.
By the end of November, Mercury/Saturn will have completed a two month crystallization process. You’ll have a better sense of where it is going and what you can do to help yourself along.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Look and observe. The mirror is changing by the moment. Profound inner change is occurring for you now. You’ll see it reflected through the contrast between past and present. Saturn in Scorpio is currently working you through a two and half year process. On the more specific and immediate scale, Mercury/Saturn takes you through a two month research and development curve. The beginning of November places you at the half-way mark.
Thanks to its ongoing dynamic dialogue with Pluto, Uranus in Aries now gifts with you the most liberating opportunity of a lifetime – and perhaps the most liberating opportunity of multi-lifetimes. There is no better time than now to fix, correct, heal, to release or relinquish, to renovate and upgrade, to hone your skill, to do what needs to be done. Accompanying the Nov 1st Uranus/Pluto square, Mars in Virgo is in a facilitating and productive alignment with Pluto. The now is your teaching tool and your best planting time.
Both Uranus and Mercury are in retrograde during the Nov 3 solar eclipse. Just days before Mercury retrograde ends (on Nov 10), Jupiter begins retrograde (on Nov 6). That’s a lot of added concentration on backward looking, inner soul searching, and self development. The stars are gifting you with an exceptional opportunity to bring something of the past forward into a new context. It’s a time to conquer and empower yourself, to defeat self sabotaging ways, old behaviour patterns, or addictions. Better yet, it’s a time to explore a new way of living with yourself and creating your life.
Whether it’s already been in the works or you find yourself suddenly jettisoned, the Nov 3 solar eclipse officially launches a completely renovated home and family chapter. It can signal a significant change in material or financial status too. If your experience translates into a sudden or drastic carpet pull – and it could – try not to get frozen in the emotional fall out of the moment. Move swiftly onto the correction and rebuild part, and save the processing part for a little later when you can review with less emotional rawness.
The solar eclipse can be particularly impactful for folks born at the end of July or first five days of August. Of course, Uranus/Pluto and the solar eclipse touch each one of us in a uniquely significant way.
The Taurus full moon on Nov 17 gives you more to work with and toward. The days preceding set the stage in some dynamic way. Watch for a contract, professional ambition, work project, financial or family matter come to fruition. It is a productive time for moving it forward.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You should find yourself feeling confident, in good can-do position at month’s start. November opens with an empowered Mars in Virgo. Nov 1 and 2 are your best take charge and get down to it days. Mercury retrograde, continuing to Nov 10, provides you with extra time to sort out a relationship or personal matter, to observe, research, or study, to build up your resources, or to re-strategize. Mars in Virgo will keep you well fuelled and in driver’s seat through the beginning of Dec.
Uranus/Pluto continues construction on the new you. You are a long way into the reprogramming, but of course there’s more to experience, to develop, and to overhaul. The Scorpio solar eclipse of Nov 3 signals a new learn-the-ropes chapter. It is the end of the road for friendships, professional associations, involvements, activities, and mindsets that no longer serve, and the beginning of ones that can carry you the distance.
The eclipse is an ideal prompt for educational pursuits, career and social upgrades, for new financial investments, and for strengthening yourself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Of course, Mercury retrograde and the solar eclipse can also ignite added expense regarding medical matters, documentation, transportation, communication media, legal or educational fees, plumbing or electrical upgrades, etc. All upgrades hold more than the usual potential. A fresh attitude does wonders for you too.
If you find yourself in another go ‘round with someone of significance – especially one you feel enmeshed with, bound to, usurped by or betrayed by – recognize it as a critical evolutionary crossroads. It is a chance to break out of the repeating loop and to move the karma along. In an action alignment with Venus, Ceres moves out of Virgo and into Libra just a few hours before the solar eclipse on Nov 3. The duo will keep tipping the scale and keep the action going strong through Nov 7.
While in Capricorn, Venus serves as one of your best planetary tools. It helps you to garner more respect and acknowledgement. Venus loans you more control, justification and creativity. This planetary position helps you to call your shots better, to feel more secure, and better rewarded. You’ll gain from Venus and her extended stay through Capricorn through the start of March.
By the time the Taurus moon rises full on Nov 17, circumstances and situations will have played themselves out to a large extent. You should have a good feel for what you want, what’s workable, what’s feasible and how to approach it next. Watch the prior week ahead for answers, gains, opportunity or the final straw. Nov 11, 12, 15, 16 and the last week of November are also compass setting.
LIBRA (SEPT 22-OCT 22)
You have more going on, and more going for you than you know. Something or someone could burst onto the scene at month’s start. Whether its multi-tiered, a domino, or a single flash, it can hit you all at once. The second peak of Uranus/Pluto on Nov 1 and the solar eclipse of Nov 3, can thrusts you through yet another sharp corner bend along your evolutionary time-line. Noting that Mars is in trine Pluto at the same time, hopefully what occurs falls in the category of a hidden ace or a saving grace.
Saturn and Mercury retrograde take you through a critical review of priorities, investments, needs, self preservation, and survival mechanisms. Along with the fresh wind advance of Ceres into Libra just hours before, the Scorpio solar eclipse of Nov 3 could launch something quite lucrative and desirable. Perhaps its something long sought for, long yearned for. Even if it is fresh and new to you, your soul is most like to be quite familiar with it. You’ll know it by that déjà vu or destiny feel.
Venus, your ruler, is on a major mission for the entire month. You’ll attract, accumulate, and build more than usual. Of course it can heap more on you, especially regarding home, family and financial burden. Venus leaves Sagittarius and advances into Capricorn on Nov 5. This switch signals a good time to cut back on your overhead, to downsize, to get more goal oriented, and to concentrate on quality over quantity. This is especially important as Venus will be retrograde for the Christmas holidays and through January. It is to your advantage to get organized and on track now as your emotional resources or finances can be put under more pressure later. To the positive Venus in Capricorn can help you to get you better anchored, committed, and secure. Venus in Capricorn rewards ambition and effort. It is an ideal transit for starting your own business or a new professional track.
Nov 12 – 15 can be a major move ahead or turnaround time. Show me the money, honey; the Taurus full moon on Nov 17 brings matters to do with net worth, self worth, survive, and thrive to a peak. Starting Nov 21 through the end of the month, it’s time to expand your marketing or your social contact, to increase your visibility or knowledge base, to get more mobile or physically active, to travel, or perform, to shop around, scout around, or to play it up more.
SCORPIO (Oct 23~Nov 22)
You will get the most direct hit from the solar eclipse on Nov 3 if your birthday falls within 5 days of it either side. An eclipse can take you by surprise into the uncharted, although with Mars and Pluto working together, and Uranus/Pluto ongoing, you are likely to be already in the middle of working on it. In reality the eclipse is an official midway marker for the momentous transition and/or complete life overhaul that you have been working through for some time now. It is furthering the process of regenerating, rejuvenating, re-inventing, and reclaiming yourself and your life. Someone or something is likely to have already served as a major catalyst in this huge life transition. Mercury retrograde can see a resurfacing of that individual or event, whether it is in actuality, through memory, agents, or more indirect means. If someone new arrives on the scene, you can bet that they have something of significance to contribute. They may be new to you in this lifetime, but they can be of great familiarity to your soul. Nothing happens by chance, it is all orchestrated to accelerate your evolutionary opportunity. There is no better time than now to dive in full tilt, to take the ball and run with it with conscious intent, to employ the gifts and the learning to your higher good and to the higher good of all.
Regarding a key relationship, an immediate circumstance, project, ambition, and a more significant or longer term prospect too, Mercury retrograde can also give you more time to work out the necessary kinks, to get clearer and better focused. Mercury retrograde can also force you to readdress health, wealth, or trust matters, but ultimately, it paves the way for improvement.
With Mercury retrograde out of the way, Nov 12 to 15 can be a time of making decisions and plans, of turning the ship around, and/or of getting things off the ground in a bigger way. Nov 17 brings money or relationship matters to a full peak. You could make a significant purchase or commitment around this time. In addition to an opportune time to travel and visit, the last week of the month is both a wrap-it-up and a launch-it time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 ~ Dec 21)
It’s all about the potential and what you make of it. The solar eclipse of Nov 3 can unlock something profound from deep within you. It could be subject matter and/or emotions you haven’t visited for a long while. A long lost feeling or a long lost someone could reappear – in actuality or through your inner explorations.
The solar eclipse can also move whatever has been on brew from the back to the front burner. Along with Uranus/Pluto, and the rest of the stellar pack, this eclipse can be a kick-start for significant physical, emotional, or material healing to begin. It is an ideal time to mend fences with a parent or another significant person or organizational body. This eclipse can also launch a career, or a business project, or even a life’s work.
Leaving Sagittarius on Nov 5, Venus will park herself in Capricorn through the beginning of March. Venus in this position can boost professional and material ambitions or status. Matters to do with aging parents and parenting are also a feature of this transit. Whether naturally, willingly, or forced upon you, the transit can see you take on more substantial responsibility. Venus in Capricorn brings you to a time is right moment – to make a relationship commitment, to become a parent, to launch your own business, to sign a significant contract, to work on a specific project. It can also help you to get real, to get better dedicated and committed, to put better effort into yourself, your relationship, and/or your financial get-ahead. Just after Mercury retrograde ends, you should see a better flow, especially Nov 12 when the sun trines Jupiter. Venus is activated in the days preceding the Taurus full moon on Nov 17. Watch for a significant development or redirection regarding the above mentioned.
Nov 24, Mercury and Saturn completes a two month process, project, circumstance, wait, or wading through period. Nov 27, Mercury trine Jupiter resumes where it left off in October when Mercury began retrograde. It’s a good day to put it out there, or to put yourself into flight.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 ~ Jan 19)
You may face a formidable climb or wall, but its now or never time. You are assisted at month’s start by Mars in Virgo in a productive alignment (trine) to Pluto. It’s the perfect time to make the necessary corrections and adjustments, to test yourself or to test the waters. Whether you consciously work toward a new life track, or whether your soul is forcing you to get with the program, Uranus/Pluto, at peak on Nov 1, and the Scorpio solar eclipse of Nov 3, continue to keep you hard at task.
Both Mercury retrograde and Saturn in Scorpio are of major influence for the solar eclipse, suggesting that what’s on the table now isn’t completely new. It’s been in the works for quite some time. Although there’s still more kinks to work out of the system and more layers that will be added time goes on, the stars now position you at a last pass review. As I wrote about in last month’s forecasts, Mercury/Saturn are working their way through a two month process that will complete at the end of Nov. Progressively, the reality is shaping up, defining itself and dictating the parameters of what comes next. The solar eclipse can launch a new career, financial, or personal life status. A significant relationship or association can end. A new one could be instrumental to your future. Given the nature of the stars, even though it may be new to you, it isn’t new to your soul. Yes, you have done or tried this before, met them previously, faced this previously, etc. But now, there’s an opportunity to bring it forward, to update it and to leave the outgrown and outdated behind.
Venus enters Capricorn on Nov 6. Due to an upcoming retrograde (Dec 21 to Jan 31) Venus will tenant your sign through the beginning of March. This is another crystallizing influence. Personally and professionally, it is one that can bring you more respect and acknowledgement. It is an ideal transit for gaining accreditation or an official status. It is time to secure yourself as an expert in your chosen field. It is a good transit for starting a business or a family, or for becoming an empty-nester. Citizenship or a land status can be in the works too. Whenever a planet extends a visit to a sign, it allows for more time to stage, to ripen, to accumulate and acclimatize, to process and experience, to work the kinks out of the system, to make more conscious choices.
Mercury retrograde ends on Nov 10. If it was held up during the retrograde, it can move along quite swiftly after this point and especially at the end of the month when Mercury/Jupiter resume their interrupted dialogue. The week before the Taurus full moon on Nov 17 will keep the action going strong. The full moon can piece it all together for you in some lucrative or anchoring way. The last week of the month shifts you onto the next page.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 ~ Feb 18)
The intense concentration in Scorpio is currently hard at work reformatting your life’s course and its priorities. You can feel the impact the greatest in areas of professional development, committed relationship, parents, parenting, and/or family responsibilities.
Even with Mercury continuing in retrograde to Nov 10, the very start of the month can be productive for corrective steps and measures. The retrograde influences give you another chance to revisit, revise, and improve upon. To Dec 7, Mars in Virgo will continue to put you to the test, to keep you working at it until you clear away what is necessary so that you can get yourself to someplace better.
The second peak of Uranus/Pluto on Nov 1 can be a disruptive, usurping, or acceleration influence. You can make an abrupt change, perhaps one that you hadn’t planned on. You may find that things suddenly veer off course, or you may discover that you’d be better off heading in a completely different direction. Circumstances can force you to redirect your attention and involvement. You could pull the plug on someone or vice versa. Whether the look/see or drop-and-go is temporary or permanent, it is an appropriate time to switch tracks. The Scorpio solar eclipse on Nov 3 is a new moon which bodes well for moving into something new. If you needed to extra rocket fuel, you’ll get it now. The eclipse delivers more potency and dynamic life-force to all endings and beginnings. If you are born in the last few days of January or first few of February, this eclipse will hold more forceful, life-altering impact. Remember the current stellar influences are at work on a larger scale project and this current moment is just one more stepping stone put into place.
The end of Mercury retrograde on Nov 10 begins a move-it-ahead, get-it-off the ground or ditch-it week. You can accomplish, correct or gain more than the usual Nov 12 to 15. Nov 14, 15 can be significant or force-your-hand days for financial matters and for switching gears. The Taurus full moon on Nov 17 is solidifying for matters to do with real estate, family, finances, investments, plans, and projects.
PISCES (Feb 19 ~ March 20)
Life may be throwing you a curve ball right now, but you can handle it. On the bigger picture side of life, you’ll see it all work out for the best. Uranus in retrograde for this second alignment with Pluto brings a need to adjust, repair, or heal something that’s been long outstanding. Too, the transit can get something out of the way that’s been blocking you from reaching a goal or from getting a move-on.
The revitalizing Scorpio eclipse on Nov 3 can set your future on its new course. It offers an exceptionally potent thrust for a launch, for speculative and creative ventures, for re-visioning your heart’s desires. Among the many opportunities before you now: travel, relocation, higher education, a new vocation, publishing, broadcasting, publicity/public exposure/fame, media and marketing expansion, immigration, and new love. Remember that while both Uranus/Pluto and the eclipse can trigger an event, more importantly they are a catalyst for an unfolding process or circumstance. There are many layers to work though yet.
The advance of Venus into Capricorn on Nov 5 (and in square to Ceres through Nov 6) brings the vision, the reality, and the relationship into better focus.
Two days after Mercury retrograde ends and one day before Neptune retrograde ends, the sun trines Jupiter. Nov 12 can be a peak day of harmony, flow, ease, and opportunity. You can feel the Nov 17 Taurus full moon build in the few days preceding it thanks to Venus sparking Uranus/Pluto again. Expect added intensity, a significant redirection or forward thrust regarding relationships and financial matters.
Mercury completes with Saturn on Nov 25 and moves to a next page with Jupiter on Nov 27, the transits are perfectly timed for shifting the attention to the holidays.
