Mercury into Scorpio
Our way of communicating shifts from diplomatic and balanced Libra into intense, deep, and focused Scorpio. This is an opportunity to get to the bottom of things, and understand hidden motives.
Venus conjunct Mars in Virgo
The joining together of our desires and drives, this aspect supports us to go after what we want. Venus softens roughshod Mars, while Mars energizes peaceful Venus. Depending on where this aspect falls in your chart, it could spur a romance, set in motion a creative project, or bring new energy to friendships.
Tuesday November 3rd
Jupiter in Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces
Jupiter generally brings luck, growth, and abundance. But too much of a good thing can be our undoing. How do our excesses wound us? This energy might show up as pain, but can be harnessed for healing: especially with Jupiter in Virgo, which loves health and spiritual practice, and Chiron in Pisces, which feels deeply, and desires wholeness.
Thursday November 5th
Sun in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn
Scorpio is Pluto’s home sign, so the Sun here, in alignment with Pluto, carries a double dose of Plutonic intensity. This could induce an awareness of power dynamics and the shadow side of humanity, coming to light of hidden motives, the surfacing of volcanic energies. The hidden contains not only the ugly, but also our highest potential--the power within us that we are afraid to acknowledge. Here’s a little help to step into our own power.
Friday November 6th
Mercury in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces
Alignment between the mind and communication with the imagination and the collective unconscious. We may be more aware of the interconnectedness between all beings; of the power of symbols and archetypes; and of the wholeness that lies beyond the mind. To harness this energy, meditate, listen to music, make art, or contemplate the mysteries of consciousness.
Venus conjunct North Node in Virgo
This aspect encourages us to consider our values, and whether or not they are in alignment with our highest purpose.
Sunday November 8th
Venus enters Libra
Venus loves being in Libra, so this transit lifts the energy and brings ease to our relationships, as well as heightening the beauty and harmony in our lives.
Last week, I mentioned that reading these forecasts with reference to your own natal chart will give you much more information and insight. As promised, I’m going to start including examples from the lives of readers (you!), to ground this astrology in reality, and show how we get so much more information when we compare the current astrology to our personal astrology. (For instructions on accessing your birthchart, and how to participate, see here). I'll be sharing this research on Wednesdays. (To receive these posts by email, check that you're signed up to "never miss a post"--you can change your preferences at the bottom of the email, or when you sign up).
