|Sun in Scorpio, Mercury direct, Full Moon Lunar Eclipse|
|In the Stars for November|
Happy November the holiday season is here as the transiting Sun is moving through the intense water sign Scorpio. This energy can put us in touch with our deeper motivations and the shadow side of our primal nature. When the Sun is moving through the Scorpio, it is the time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere when nature changes into a dormant state for the winter hibernation period. The beauty of nature is seen as it changes the colors of the leaves. We can observe the transformation as all things go back to being dust. Scorpio rules the mystery of life, death, and renewal; the cycle continues.
Scorpio Sun signs are intense individuals geared to pursue their desires fervently. They will work long and hard for their objectives those that are above board or even underhandedly. They are ruled by Mars and Pluto which explains their tenacity, assertive drives, and staying power. These folks can be full of courage, driven, and passionate with their sense of purpose. They are a fixed water sign that means they may not change or forgive very well. They can exert tremendous energy and also have a volcanic temper. They love deeply, passionately and can be loyal to those that are close to them. They will fight for justice and fairness. They may appear reserved but can be argumentative when defending others. They can be curious and suspicious as they make great detectives. Most do like sports and athletic activities. Happy Birthday, Scorpio! During this year those born early in the month will receive a challenging aspect from Saturn and Uranus. Change is inevitable so make the right decision for the good of all concerned.
The Planetary Aspects for November
The first week of Nov. 1-7th, The New Moon occurs Nov. 4th this week starts off the lunar cycle it’s a good time to begin projects and plans as Mercury moving in direct motion in Scorpio joins energetic Mars in Scorpio which allows us to get busy and get things done under this assertive Sun in Scorpio time. Venus planet of love, relationships, and values moves into the conservative earth sign Capricorn this month where it will make aspects to Uranus in Taurus bringing in changes to those security issues and Venus joins up with transformative Pluto in Capricorn later in the month. Some may find that relationship issues can become more intense towards the end of this month and in December.
The second week of Nov. 8th– 14th, On Wed. the transiting Moon in Aquarius makes difficult aspects to Mars, Mercury Saturn, and Uranus which can be a challenging day for decision making. On Thurs Nov. 11th the 2nd Quarter Moon in Aquarius continues to form a challenging square to the Sun in Scorpio. But it will conjoin with Jupiter in Aquarius which highlights the theme of humanitarian causes that we can promote on Veterans Day, Mercury in Scorpio will oppose Uranus in Taurus which can bring up eccentricities with ideas and communications may suffer. Try not to be rigid and allow for opposite points of view when engaging with others. The Moon shifts into the compassionate water sign Pisces on Sat. and Sunday we can be up in the clouds engaged with our imagination until Sunday morning when the Moon charges up the energy in the egocentric fire sign Aries.
The third week Nov. 15th, Monday could start the week off with challenges with Venus squaring Chiron in Aries, more insights can be gained about unique ideas and inspirations regarding relations. Then the transiting Sun in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Aquarius this aspect intensifies the energy on Monday for decisions and perhaps a deeper awareness on current issues that engage the collective masses could be energy issues since both the Sun in Scorpio and Jupiter in Aquarius is involved with these world issues. The Sun sextiles Pluto easing this intense energy for transformation, some may be helped by this aspect so that there is more ease with the work of transformation around energy issues on Tuesday, Nov. 16th. The on Wed. aggressive Mars in its own power sign of Scorpio opposes rebellious Uranus in Taurus this aspect changes the money and power paradigm. This may be more apparent this week and it could reveal more news about the economy. This week looks difficult. On Thurs. Nov. 18th, the energy shifts as Mercury in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces which lends more intuitive insights to our perceptions of hidden issues. On this day, Venus in Capricorn trines Uranus in Taurus perhaps giving the feeling that security and safety are assured especially for those who are predicting a financial world crisis. There is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Friday, the Moon in Taurus and the Sun in Scorpio. Eclipse energy will affect Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius Sun signs this month.
