Shocking voters and the world, Trump, serving as the loud speaker/spokesman for the collective shadow has won the USA election. Hillary’s “stronger together” bid has been shattered by the triple conjunction of Eris (goddess of discord), Ceres (confrontation with shadow) and Uranus (revolution for evolution), all traveling in retrograde motion in Aries. When push comes to shove, Eris and Ceres are formidable fighters.
While USA politics is on shake-not-stir, November opens with a fluid feel thanks to the sun’s trine to Neptune. For the most part, this first week of the month should prove productive and opportune. Venus builds a trine aspect with Uranus, Eris, and Ceres through November 4/5, keeping social and political matters well energized. The USA election day starts on a void-of-course moon in Aquarius. By afternoon or early evening depending on which coast you are on, the moon treks into Pisces. The Aquarius moon is good for shock value. The Pisces moon suggests that the election outcome stirs emotions, like a turbulent ocean, that run the gamut.
Mars enters Aquarius a couple of hours after the voting polls close on November 8. This transit alone could spark a reactionary backlash. Unresolved anger and rage is a Pisces archetype. While the transiting moon makes several aspects on November 9 (occults Neptune, squares Saturn, sextiles Pluto and trines the sun), it is possible that the stars may keep a better lid on the violence than some are anticipating. Then again, perhaps that’s my wishful thinking. For sure, there will be plenty to report on in the days and weeks to come.
November 14 delivers a super full moon in Taurus. It is the closest of the season (second of three in a row) but it doesn’t hold as many added planetary influences as last month’s full moon (October 14) or next month’s (December 13). Still, a full moon across Taurus/Scorpio always hits with impact. It puts critical attention on the things we value the most and on the people we are engaged with too. What lives on, what dies/expires, what’s stuck, what changes? Can it be revived? The full moon puts added attention on all matters to do with money, survival, ownership, use of resources, trust, intimacy, sex, fertility, attractions, enmeshment, stale-mates, manipulation, addictions, agendas, and power plays. To the plus, it can be a major turnaround time, quite lucrative, even ground breaking for some.
Neptune ends retrograde on November 19. The couple of days prior to could raise emotional tides. Retail, entertainment venues, or travellers have received the memo. The week of the USA Thanksgiving has a notable transit/something going for it every day. The month ends on a new moon in Sagittarius square Neptune. Along with Venus square Uranus, we now have a few events checked off the list and a few left to go before we reach the end of yet another year.
MAY EVERY TABLE BE BLESSED WITH ABUNDANCE –

The stars give you extra leg room as the month opens. If you feel at a loss, it won’t take long to come up with something new and/or to get yourself plugged back in.

The Sagittarius new moon on November 29 brings the month to an end somewhat the same as it began – that is to say, you’ll have extra leg room and the opportunity to try something new on for size.
CAPRICORN December 21 to January 20
November opens with more going on with you and around you than may be obvious. Timing is everything. There’s no need to push or to force a thing. Allow for thoughts, feelings, and circumstances to unfold naturally.
Mars leaves your sign as of November 8 but it will continue to keep it fresh and be of benefit as it moves through Aquarius (to December 19). Along with Venus into Capricorn (starting November 11) and Mercury into Sagittarius (starting November 12), you should find your good ideas, intuition, and people smarts to kick in quite well.

It’s an appropriate time to take a legal or official step.

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18/19

The super full moon in Taurus on November 14 can see you make a major investment or a major cash in. Don’t hesitate to revise, re-strategize, renovate or renegotiate, but don’t let yourself be coerced or talked into something you don’t want, don’t need, or don’t believe will deliver the goods. A new advisor or person in charge could be of benefit to you, but when it comes to the bottom lines, stick to what you feel is more valuable, practical, or moral. A contract, loan, or financial rearrangement is well timed. The full moon could expose something advantageous, opportune, or lucrative. Too, it could uncover something you may have sensed or wondered about, but didn’t have proof for. Pay close attention to clues, body language, inklings, finances and health matters. It runs deeper than it looks. The days immediately following the full moon put you on the upswing, so you should find you’ve made good progress.
PISCES February 18/19 to March 19/20
Even though there’s a lot up in the air or a lot to contend with, the sun’s trine to Neptune on November 1 makes for a smooth launch to the month. Sun/Neptune is good for creative projects, dreaming and conjuring, marketing, teaching, coaching, or sweet talking your way through it. Travel or romance hits the spot nicely too.

Not that you have any less to tend to, still considering the holidays are upon us, Mars turns your more of your attention to personal rather than professional matters. The plus side of this transit is giving you more objectivity, detachment, and discernment. It can give you something or someone new to think about. Perhaps it lets you off the hook and/or gives you more freedom too. Mars can also assist you if want to stay out of sight or need to stay under the radar.
The super full moon on November 14 could bring news, an invitation, lucrative opportunity, a cancellation in your favour, an event to attend, and/or change the plans or the score in some significant way. Jump on it when you can. There may be a chance to revisit something important.
Mercury into Sagittarius, starting November 12, and Sagittarius month, starting November 21, can put you in charge, bring you a reward or added professional attention. Of course, these transits also put the holiday plus and minus into full swing too.
