Can you feel Scorpio’s intense watery depths? They are magnified by Mercury’s retrograde in Scorpio (until 11/20), so we have no where to go but down and in. In our superficial world this deep dive isn’t going to hurt. Au contraire mon frère et ma soeur, it will heal you. The Sun in Scorpio (and Mercury’s retrograde) lends an air of vital energy to your activities and may even take you to the brink of life and death. Scorpio provides images to project upon and guidance/input from the Universe.
Mark your calendars for this is a magical month – Venus enters Sagittarius 11/1. Mercury will cross the face of the Sun in a rare transit on the 11th. There’s a Taurus Full Moon 11/12; Mars enters Scorpio 11/18, the Sun enters Sagittarius 11/22; and on 11/24 Jupiter and Venus play kissy kiss while Mars opposes Uranus. That’s a truly big day! The Sagittarius New Moon is on 11/26 and Neptune turns direct on 11/27.
The month opens with Mercury’s retrograde. This is a reminder to turn inward, bringing emotional issues and relationships to a rational resting place. The month also starts off with a sensible dose of Capricorn as the Moon travels through Capricorn and connects with the somber duo of Saturn and Pluto. These two will make a spectacular connection next year and Jupiter will join them. This coincides with the USA race for the presidency. I see this as a time when the laws of the land will be challenged in an unprecedented way. This is already unfolding with Donald Trump’s presidency and the current impeachment hearings. Truly, these are difficult times and are expected to get more difficult in 2020. Pluto is the modern-day ruler of Scorpio (Mars the esoteric and ancient ruler) so this month gives us clues as to what to expect over the next year.
But, back to Scorpio and November 2019. On the 1st, the Capricorn influence softens as Venus, Goddess of love and pleasure, enters optimistic Sagittarius bringing fun and adventure to romance. Venus trines gentle Chiron over the next few days, inviting you to heal your self-esteem.
The 3rd through the 5th the Moon travels through intellectual Aquarius bringing social issues to the fore – just in time for Election Day on the 5th. This is a challenging day. Mars and Pluto square one another while Venus inconjuncts Uranus. Our values are not aligned and agendas conflict.
The 6th through the 7th the watery Pisces Moon soothes spirits and may even feel confusing.
The 8th is a special day for forgiveness and unity. Neptune trines the Sun; and Saturn and Neptune sextile. This is a rare connection and won’t occur again until 2031! Use it to bless all beings, forgive your family, and to connect with the Divine.
The next few days are fiery as the waning Moon travels through Aries connecting harmoniously with Venus and Jupiter. Use this time to be inspired and bold.
Veteran’s Day on the 11th features a rare transit of Mercury across the face of the Sun. Occurring during a Mercury retrograde no less. The Sun represents authority and Mercury represents the message. Pay attention to insights you receive today. http://www.eclipsewise.com/oh/tm2019.html
The Taurus Full Moon on the 12th exposes your emotions and hidden agendas. This is your cue to let go and let God. There are simply some things you can’t control. It’s time to acknowledge the end of a season in your life and to begin a time of deep resting. Again, listen to the message!
On the 13th you may question reality when Venus squares Neptune. Watch out you don’t over-do on the 14th when the Moon opposes Jupiter. There’s no need to accuse anyone or blow things out of proportion – not all the facts are available.
The energy is quite watery and emotional through to the 18th as the Moon travels through Cancer in harmony with the Scorpio Sun. The 18th to the 20th the Moon in Leo strengthens your ego and confidence. This may also increase general stubbornness and a refusal to change.
Early (MT) on the 19th Mars enters its home sign of Scorpio giving you a regenerative boost and taking your agenda underground. Secrets abound and sexual energy is in the air.
The Virgo Moon over the next few days is both grounding and stimulating and provides a perfect backdrop for Mercury as it turns direct on the 20th. Amen! Chaos subsides a little as Mercury finds its way again.
Things keep getting better when on the 22nd the Sun leaves steamy Scorpio for hopeful Sagittarius. Our moods lift toward the coming holiday season whether we want to or not. On the shadow side, Sagittarius believes in its own opinions and we’re likely to see even more fundamentalism over the next 30 days as polarizing parties espouse doctrine.
Please be cautious on the 23rd through the 24th. Mars opposes Uranus during this period. This is a difficult and dangerous transit. Stay away from crowds and angry people. Push forward in a difficult project as long as it doesn’t involve sharp objects or weapons. Mars and Uranus connections are associated with accidents and risk-taking behavior. On the positive side, this transit brings a feeling of freedom and exploration. Do something different today.
The 24th is a most unusual over-the-top day. Loving Venus connects with abundant Jupiter at the Galactic center while later that day Mars opposes Uranus. This is the day to meet a love partner or to go further with the one you love. Be prudent and sensible – don’t let the wild energy of this day lead you astray.
The 25th is a day to come to your senses as the Moon disappears into darkness and Venus, Goddess of love, enters prudent and pragmatic Capricorn. This is a total energy shift.
The Sagittarius New Moon on the 26th (two days before Thanksgiving in the USA) encourages a change in plan, or at least in attitude. With a trine to Chiron and a quincux to Uranus this New Moon opens your spirit and mind to new possibilities. Think about the Big Picture of your life right now because next month Jupiter will leave Sagittarius and enter Capricorn for the first time in 12 years. This will be a significant shift and you’ll need your vision.
The 27th is optimistic with a fair dose of tradition thrown in. Neptune turns direct today waking you from the dream and inviting you to remember you’re a spiritual being having a human experience.
Thanksgiving (11/28) is always a special day but this one, this year, is especially so. Today Mercury trines Neptune for the last time this year. And Jupiter reaches the Galactic Center preparing to leave its home sign, not to be back for another 12 years. Make memories today as the Moon (feelings) connects with Venus.
The Moon continues to travel through Capricorn through to the end of the month making family your foundation. Big changes are coming. New energy, not necessarily any easier, is on its way.
Remember, you matter. We are all connected, earth is our home and love is our destination.
