November 2019 - We’re in a Scorpio new moon cycle as we enter November, but with Mercury retrograde until the twentieth, consider this a process of revisiting recent conversations and a situation that began to unfold when Mercury entered shadow on October 1.
Most significantly, this is Jupiter’s final month in Sagittarius. The past year has marked a journey of expansion and exploration, far and wide, within and without. November offers a chance to integrate lessons and reap the rewards before we enter the next phase of evolution.
The planets are busy this month making supportive aspects and bringing real, tangible progress, valuable and potentially life-changing discoveries and developments, and perhaps once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
One cautionary aspect arrives as Mars squares Pluto on the fifth, asking for awareness and sidestepping power struggles as best as possible, or at least resolving them internally. It isn't all smooth sailing from there, but for the most part it is! Which is a lot more than we can say about astrology at most times. One danger is that given how smooth things seem on the surface, we could stop paying attention and take our hands off the wheel. That would not be wise!
November 12 marks the Taurus full moon in opposition to the sun and Mercury, while Mars sextiles Jupiter, among other aspects in following days, bringing deep and profound fundamental shifts. There’s a sense of having an abundance of choices, but with the full moon in Taurus, dig deep and choose based on your core values.
Life is evolving deeply beneath the surface and behind the scenes, clearing the path for what is to come. But what’s unfolding is also stabilizing and anchoring us as we enter the next chapter.
Mars enters Scorpio on the nineteenth, kicking everything up a notch. Mercury stations direct the next day, ushering in a domino-effect chain of events through the end of the month. Pay attention to the information that surfaces and move forward with an awareness of what you’re creating.
The sun enters Sagittarius, signaling the beginning of the end of Jupiter’s transit in that sign. Over the past year, this transit has brought growth and expansion in consciousness on a personal and global level, widening horizons and increasing our awareness of what’s possible, with a need to seek a higher truth. It is the wisdom gained on your journey and through experience that is truly priceless. Embody the lessons of the transit. They will serve you well over the coming year and the next twelve years until Jupiter returns to Sagittarius.
A red-letter day arrives on November 24, when Venus meets Jupiter in Sagittarius and Mars opposes Uranus. Expect breakthroughs and developments (on this day and surrounding days) and perhaps once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
With Mars and Uranus in aspect, sudden unexpected events are unfolding. It’s important to note, as a precaution, that you should drive carefully and pay extra attention when handling heavy machinery, open flames, and knives. Still, given that Venus and Jupiter are the two benefics of the zodiac, there’s real benevolence, protection, and grace in effect. Trust that whatever unfolds is clearing the path for what’s to come.
On the twenty-fifth, Venus enters Capricorn (leading the way for Jupiter), followed by the Sagittarius new moon the next day and Neptune’s direct station the day after that. This is a mystical, magical moment with a real sense of grace. If it seems like reality is too hard to bear, this is an invitation to see past the illusion and into the heart of a sweeter divine reality.
We’re in a new cycle asking for hope, optimism, and unshakable faith as we reach for the brightest vision on the horizon and manifest it.
