In the Stars for November
I love the fall season, the weather is cooler and the natural landscape changes its palette of color and light. This starts its wintering process, as the natural cycle of the Sun and Earth turns the vegetation’s process inward to winter for another season. We see a variety of colors and some already have snow in the upper northern country as winter comes early this year.
The Sun in intense water sign Scorpio brings in the energies this month of an inward searching out for
the truth as Scorpio energy seeks out to gain transformation from deeper sources. The meaning of the scorpion is that it transforms from the depths and flies freely soaring like the eagle. Scorpio is a fixed sign meaning they don’t like change yet set in their ways change and transformation are part of the journey for Scorpio. Those intense desires must be transformed if they are to gain relief from their inner battle with their consciousness. Intense action, passionate drive, resolute effort, endurance, unflinching courage, unswerving purpose, and inscrutable attitudes are qualities basic to this sign. These folks have intense emotions which can fluctuate causing them to appear instable. They are self-contained, self-centered people who have vast amounts of energy and creativity. They are highly selective and loyal to their friends and partners and maybe jealous and possessive if they feel insecure. They achieve whatever they want to pursue, as they have personal magnetism and healing power within them. Happy Birthday, Scorpio! Uranus planet of change has been helping you get out of the rut and move towards a greater understanding of what needs to change. Saturn/Pluto has been providing an ounce of caution and stabilizing energy along the way.
Planetary Shifts for November
Mercury will retrograde in the water sign Scorpio, starting Nov. 1rst and ending Nov. 21rst, it will continue to lend us the intense energy of Scorpio for making those connections between things, fixing anything that needs a thorough going over the details, research and any creative work benefits during this time. This is not a good time to sign contracts as things may change after the retrograde or delays or things subject to miscommunications. For those doing the investigative work in congress, they may uncover all kinds of information to sort out during this time as Scorpio knows where all the bodies are hiding.
Venus moves out of intense and moody Scorpio forwards onto the fire sign Sagittarius lifting up our enthusiasm, courage, idealism, and faith in relationships. Mars moves through air sign Libra, the sign of its detriment, and it squares Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn causing frustrations and limitations which can later this month lead to a constructive resolution when Mars enters Scorpio and sextiles Saturn and Pluto.
For now, Mars in Libra focuses on balance and harmony helping us with our efforts in networking, and teamwork as to any contractual agreements with others. Yet what Mars couldn’t do while in Libra, it will as it moves through its own powerful water sign Scorpio midmonth. Also, add Mercury moving forwards this will increase the flow of energy much more constructively, we will feel more energy coming through the last two weeks of November during the Thanksgiving Holiday.
The Sun shifts into Sagittarius on Nov. 23rd this will lift up the energy and help us feel more festive no matter what is going on. Jupiter planet of growth and expansion continues its trek through the later degrees of its own fire sign Sagittarius. This helps all fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, those born in the last few degrees now to broaden and expand their awareness.
Saturn and Pluto continue to trek through serious Capricorn as we see the dismantling of the power structure and more people rising up for justice and fairness. The earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn benefit from this aspect as this aspect of Saturn and Pluto brings strength and perseverance through transformations of structures. The power paradigm changes however slowly.
Uranus continues to create waves of change for those clinging to the old material value it helps us to change and revolutionize the status quo. The earth sign Taurus and water sign Scorpio can really use this energy to shift the values. We have yet to see what has really changed since Uranus in retrograde since Aug. 12th and will move direct motion in January 2020. This is going to be a big month for change Jupiter will shift into Capricorn and trine Uranus all the while any decisions that come up then are likely to be karmic since Saturn and Pluto join in a tight conjunction in Capricorn affecting order, structure, and governments.
Neptune in its own water sign Pisces helps us grow compassion, intuition, and trust. This placement helps all the water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces sun signs.
The Lunar Cycle for November
New Moon happened Oct. 27th in the water sign Scorpio adding passion and drives to most of our activities. A good time to research and evaluate now as Mercury has gone retrograde also in the intense water sign Scorpio. This is a good time to pace ourselves and use caution where necessary as the details may evade us. Be flexible with your schedule and travel plans may change; patience is a must under the retrograde.
The First Quarter Moon occurs Nov. 4th in the air sign Aquarius we’ll have the Sun and Moon square creating the needed energy to pursue our plans, develop humanitarian ideals that help the collective. This is the time to see how your plans are growing.
The Full Moon lights up the sky Nov.12th in the fixed earth sign Taurus, possibly a pleasant bright evening. Taurus energy puts us in touch with comfort, security and pleasing loved ones. It’s a good time to evaluate your security, values, and relationships under this moon.
The Last Quarter Moon occurs Nov. 19th in the fire sign, Leo. A good time to take it easy this week as Mars will move into Scorpio its own sign this strengthen our energy and resolve. Plus Mercury goes direct this Wed. on Nov. 20th. The time to evaluate this lunar cycle is now with all the new energy coming in on the weekend as the Sun leaves Scorpio and enters into the enthusiastic fire sign Sagittarius on Nov. 22nd.
The New Moon occurs Nov. 26th in the fire sign Sagittarius. Neptune turns direct motion on the 27th this may be a creative force coming in as the Sun forms a sextile aspect to dreamy Neptune in December. Thanksgiving Day we have the Moon in the serious practical and ambitious earth sign Capricorn. Be good to everyone as we all see things from different perspectives and that ensures our collective growth.
