Welcome to November and the deep waters of Scorpio. The icy waves carry us until the energy shifts to the warm fire of Sagittarius on the 21st. Until that time both the Sun and Mars (who is happy in Scorpio, his home sign) travel through the part of your lives that brings your deepest insights, and your fears, to the surface. Above all, this is a time to deeply regenerate and ask yourself what you truly need. The answer may be buried deep inside so take the time to listen in. Chances are good you’ll be surprised by what you discover.
Just two days after mid-term elections, surprises abound. The Scorpio New Moon on Thursday 11/4 at 3pm MT is exactly opposite Uranus, Lord of chaos and innovation. What changes in value would you like to bring into your life? Do your roots need some extra TLC? If so, then set an intention at this most potent time.
The 5th is a big day with two cosmic moves. First, Venus leaves gypsy Sadge for more prudent Capricorn; the party is over. It’s time to get serious about life, as if you weren’t already. Then a few hours later, Mercury enters Scorpio where the Sun and Mars are. Intense thoughts, feelings and memories resurface.
On 6th and 7th a little of your mojo returns when the Moon travels through Sadge. She comes out the other side to connect with Venus making the 7th a day for love and prosperity.
On the 8th through to the 10th, Mercury travels with Mars giving communications a feisty edge. The 9th is especially deep as the Moon connects with Pluto, too.
The 10th may feel familiar when the Aquarian Moon conjuncts Saturn, custodian of time. The 11th brings lots of people your way.
On the 12th through the 13th, Mercury opposes its higher octave Uranus bringing new ideas and breakthroughs. Get your technology up to date.
On the 14th through the 18th please be careful. Mars opposes Uranus and these two facing each can be volatile, even dangerous. Please don’t text and drive!
The 17th is especially sharp. Keep your wits about you. Use the energy to push through inertia.
The energy is building with the waxing moon, see if you can feel it.
The Taurus Full Moon lunar eclipse just before 2 am (MT) on November 19th includes the fixed star Algol. Astro-mythology around Algol isn’t pleasant — it includes crazy madness, but specifically the power of Mother Nature, and feminine passion in general. This is a lunar eclipse with a square to abundant Jupiter, so consider yourself warned! This lunation highlights all the things you value most. Social issues come to the forefront. Get with people you love and stay sane.
The 20th and 21st, the Moon enters airy Gemini and lifts the atmosphere. The optimism continues as the Sun moves into confident Sagittarius the evening of 11/21. The warm fire of Sagittarius brings hope and life, much needed as the nights grow longer.
Mercury enters Sagittarius on the 24th and straddles the South node bringing the past to the present. We’re approaching Thanksgiving, that most quintessential American holiday.
Mercury hangs out with the Sun for the next few days. Thanksgiving is a happy, optimistic time with tons of chat and plans for the future. The Moon in Leo lends a celebratory (or dramatic) air.
Black Friday November 26th, could be somewhat over the top. The Leo Moon opposes abundant Jupiter tempting shoppers into buying more.
Allow yourself sometime to unwind on Sunday the 27th when the Moon opposes dreamy Neptune.
On November 29th, Mercury conjuncts the Sun lending power to the written and spoken word.
The month ends as the Moon prepares for its rebirth at a New Moon solar eclipse on December 4th.
Hopefully this month you can take the rich insights of Scorpio to find what moves you. With your inner compass aligned, Sagittarius can propel you in the right direction. The eclipses serve as doorways, pushing you toward your heart’s desire. Remember that you matter, we’re all connected, Earth is our home and love is our destination.
