Astrological events this month:
Mercury goes retrograde October 31st in the sign of Scorpio and won’t come out, i.e., go direct, until November 20th. The exit from retrograde is called Station Direct.
Mercury rules an intensity of focus when it is in Scorpio. However, when Mercury is retrograde, it can show up as absentmindedness. Scorpio rules insurance, taxes, stocks, joint resources and secret information. Be sure to double-check those areas during this Mercury retrograde.
Venus changes signs November 1st when it enters Sagittarius until November 25th when it moves into Capricorn. Venus in Sagittarius is a great time for foreign travel, adventure and hiking with your partner or investigating new foreign cuisine. It can also be a time when risk pays off (Nov 1 through Nov 24).
The Sun will reach 16 degrees Scorpio on Friday, November 8th, making favorable exact aspects to both Saturn and retrograde Neptune. Great day to pause and assess your priorities. Neptune rules meditation and visualization. Saturn rules manifestation. The Sun rules consciousness. November 8th is an ideal day for feeling and imagining your dreams coming true.
On Monday morning, November 11th, retrograde Mercury and the Sun will both be at 18 degrees Scorpio. Since Mercury rules how we express ourselves and the Sun rules love, this is a powerful day for expressing gratitude and love.
The full moon on Tuesday, November 12th, will be in Taurus. Watch that you don’t stress-eat. Instead, contemplate how to feel stable with changes you need to embrace in your life.
Mars will go into Scorpio on Tuesday, November 9th, through Friday, January 3rd. Not a good time to plot your revenge. Well, actually, it would be a good time to take revenge if you are looking for an underworld battle with a worthy opponent. Think twice about starting an affair (Nov 9 through Jan 3).
On Friday, November 22nd, the Sun will leave Scorpio and join Venus and Jupiter in Sagittarius for the last week of November. Very optimistic time. Great time to buy a horse or a resort, start a church or take a sabbatical.
The new moon will be at 4 degrees Sagittarius on Tuesday, November 26th. This happens when the Sun and Moon are at the same degree of the zodiac. This is all about self-acceptance, self-respect and seeing yourself as your divine spirit sees you.
And last, but not least, Neptune will finally come out of retrograde so that we can think clearly again, as of Wednesday, November 27th. This will be especially meaningful to those with their Sun, Moon or ascendant in Pisces! Finally, deep and replenishing sleep for all.
