ASTROLOGICAL FORECAST FOR
November is here. We are all starting to get used to the cooler Fall weather and now we have Daylight savings ending on November 3rd at 2AM. Clock’s turned back an hr.
November 1st starts off with Venus entering the optimistic sign of Sagittarius. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Sagittarius your charming side of you increases attracting more abundance and romance. Venus will remain in Sagittarius till November25th.
Sagittarius is a sign that wants to learn more, and many attain higher degrees in education. Some even become professors. Some travel around the world and some are very religious since Sagittarius rules higher ethical laws handed down by the Supreme Court. This is a great time to learn new skills and study new subjects.
In remembrance of our Veterans we have Veterans Day on November 11th. Thank you for your service.
The full Moon is on November 12th (8:34AM EST) at 19 degrees in the sign of Taurus. Look to your natal chart and see which house or houses are ruled by Taurus. This is where you are trying to balance the physical with the spiritual.
Full Moon’s are in an opposition to the Sun. The opposite sign of Taurus is Scorpio. Taurus is about ownership of material things, artistic abilities and financial gains. The opposition wants balance.
And, with Mercury in retrograde motion in Scorpio conjunct this full Moon within a couple of degrees, balancing the checkbook and trying to create a plan to eliminate debt over the next few months can be overwhelming. With both Pluto and Saturn sextile to the Sun, you do have the power to balance your financial life with increased opportunities if you have Sun, Moon or rising in Taurus.
The Saturn/Pluto conjunction is getting tighter until it is exact in the middle of January of 2020. On this full Moon they are square to Mars. This creates explosive energies in relationships since Mars is in the peace-loving sign of Libra.
If you have planets in Libra or Capricorn, your relationships could become intense. This is the time that will not allow anymore breathing room. It’s time to change or end any relationships that have been on the edge of darkness. Holding on anymore will only bring out the darkness of any partnership that involves manipulations to control another.
Another possibility could be troubles with war-stricken areas like Syria and other parts of the world that have had issues with terrorism. Gun violence could also increase in America and elsewhere. This energy moves on after November 20th. Look to what is happening around the world from October 25th till November 20th when the Saturn/Pluto conjunction is in square to transiting Mars.
This combination could also be related to the intense typhoon recently in Japan and could also create an earthquake or volcano eruption.
Both Saturn/Pluto conjunction are trine to this full Moon and this helps to stabilize some of the intense energies coming from the square to Mars. International relationships are intense. It is the sextiles coming from Saturn/Pluto to the Sun/Mercury as well as the trines mentioned to the Moon that could bring the international trade deal with China much closer and allow a healthy month for Wall Street.
Remember, it is the statue of the bull (Taurus) in front of the main headquarters on Wall Street that reflects the full Moon in Taurus. It will get intense in the week leading up to the full Moon, but the outcome looks good from the sextiles and trines of this full Moon chart.
Mars enters Scorpio on November 19th. Mars feels comfortable in the deep waters of Scorpio. Mars used to rule Scorpio before Pluto was discovered. If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Scorpio, look for your physical vitality to increase. You could also be very ambitious working overtime. Be careful not to compromise your health by overextending yourself in some way.
Mercury stations direct at 11 degrees of Scorpio on November 20th. Mercury will not leave its shadow till December 7th because Mercury will be at 27 degrees of Scorpio where it started its retrogradation on October 31st. The sign of Scorpio is ready to put all their plans of life into forward motion. What a perfect timing since Mars entered Scorpio the day before on the 19th. Moving forward will not have to wait for the sign of Scorpio till December 7th.
The Sun enters Sagittarius on November 22nd at 9:59AM EST. Happy birthday to the sign of Sagittarius.
Venus enters Capricorn on November 25th. This gives those with Sun, Moon or rising in Capricorn the ability to attract more abundance and enjoy the pleasures of life. Capricorn more than any other sign is currently going through the most lessons to learn as the Saturn/Pluto conjunction gets tighter and tighter until January 2020 in the sign of Capricorn.
This can cause power struggles between bosses and employees if Capricorn is dominate in your natal chart. We also find issues of power being tested with the government. Are they more concerned with their own power and how they can use it or with serving the people who voted them in? This is a huge question with this combination.
Both Nancy Pelosi and Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg could be influenced by this Saturn/Pluto conjunction square to Mars on the full Moon. Nancy Pelosi has been dealing with Uranus conjunct her natal Saturn square to her Pluto. Justice Ginsburg has her natal Moon in Scorpio and has been dealing with health issues. Could there be a power of position’s changing sometime between November 5th to middle of January 2020?
The new Moon is in Sagittarius on November 26th at 4 degrees of Sagittarius (3:11AM EST). Sagittarius as mentioned at the beginning of this column is the sign of optimism and if you have Sun, Moon or rising in Sagittarius, you are ready to start new beginnings that could include a long distance journey to another country, going back to school to attain a higher degree, deepening your faith, aiming to move higher up at your job or learning a new language.
Sagittarius is the sign that needs plenty of room when it comes to their personal life. They usually, but not always, marry later in life. Both sexes are very intelligent and have a good sense of humor. If they spend to much time gathering knowledge in order to feel complete, they may miss the opportunity to just enjoy the simple things in life.
Most of us, regardless of what sign we are born under, tend to use the world to define who we are by adding more and more to ourselves in some way. For Sagittarius its adding more knowledge. They know how to reach higher but must also learn to reach within themselves. To relax in what they know.
To come to the fulfillment of all knowledge which is pure relaxed energy. Simplicity not intellectual complexities all the time. Knowledge is a great purifier, but education is not the answer to everything. One could spend a whole lifetime studying just one area of knowledge and just skimming the surface. The intellect alone, without the simple silence within, cannot satisfy the thirst for knowledge.
The late Dan Folgelberg is in the "Celebrity Spotlight". Dan had his Sun and Pluto exactly on top of each other in the sign of Leo. He is a perfect example of how a planet so close to the Sun can color it with a different sign. Dan's normal Sun sign was Leo.
In his case, Pluto normally rules Scorpio so Dan did have a much deeper expression of music than a Leo Sun would have. Normally Sun in Leo is very cheerful and happy. Dan often went very deep below the surface of the ocean where most humans do not feel comfortable exploring. We all miss Dan Fogelberg.
The mystical and spiritual Neptune stations direct on November 27th in the sign of Pisces at 15 degrees. This is the halfway point between the normal 30-degree orb in astrological work. Therefore, the sign of Pisces must move forward.
If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Pisces you are moving forward with your creative and spiritual energies. If you have an addiction to drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, gambling or sex, you want to move forward and become stronger with less of a need to escape through any means possible.
As Neptune travels through the second half of the 30-degree adventure, it wants to complete itself to higher states of consciousness. Unconditional love is Neptune and the higher octave of Venus which deals with personal love. A more focus on spirituality and coming out of any darkness will be the focus for those who have Pisces influencing their charts.
Neptune will complete its stay in Pisces around end of January of 2026. Pisces can be very creative in music, drama and the fine arts including photography. They can be very good at sales also. Spirituality is also another area that they can be talented at with the ability to have compassion for humanity and make sacrifices for others. All these areas can be increased while Neptune travels through this very sensitive water sign.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone on November 28th. Happy November.
