The month begins with a retrograde Mercury in Scorpio. Whoopie! The gauntlet for going deeper and revealing the truth of things has been thrown by the cosmic forces that be. Show up, tell the truth and go deep within yourself to make the most of this transit. People will be hypersensitive to criticism so go easy with your words.
Mercury will go direct on November 20 at 11º Scorpio 38’. This one could get pretty intense, just sayin’. The little dude is close to Venus until the 3rd, making it all rather pleasant and civilized. Venus goes into Sagittarius on the 2nd and they separate as Mercury retros and Venus moves forward.
It gets more intense after that as transiting Mars in Libra squares transiting Pluto in Capricorn. This is an explosive aspect with a potential for nasty confrontations and outcomes. Avoid volatile people and watch your back in unfamiliar surroundings. Jupiter, the planet of optimism, right action and justice, moves between 23 degrees and 29 degrees of Sagittarius, and is aspecting the Galactic Center between November 15-21. This coincides with Mercury going direct on the 20th and Mars entering Scorpio on the 20th as well. The truth of the matter does get revealed as the month unfolds.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 28, 2019 – Nov 3, 2019:
We start this week with a New Moon at 4º Scorpio 25 on Monday. As New Moons always represent new beginnings and opportunities to start anew, this one — in Scorpio — presents opportunities for deep personal connections with others, as well as a chance to explore the inner workings of our own psyches.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 21, 2019 – Oct 27, 2019:
This week starts on Monday with the Moon in Cancer (opposite Pluto) and a Venus / Neptune trine. Although the Moon is dignified in Cancer (as the sign it naturally rules), the opposition to Pluto can intensify emotional reactions, especially the more uncomfortable emotions, like jealousy, mistrust and even paranoia.
It’s a relatively fleeting aspect, which should be overshadowed by the much more pleasant Venus / Neptune trine. This spect asserts a idealized version of love, beauty, romance and compassion for others. It can bring you closer to loved ones, and see you feeling so connected to them that it’s hard to tell where you end and they begin. As a result, you may feel so in sync with those who hold a special place in your heart that you know exactly what they need to feel appreciated during this time.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 14, 2019 – Oct 20, 2019:
This week starts with a Sun / Pluto square and a Mercury / Saturn sextile on Monday. The Sun / Pluto square can be extremely volatile. It can erupt into power struggles or confrontations with others. Intense anger (rage), trust issues and overreactions are all potential manifestations of this transit, which can fortunately be tempered by the Mercury/ Saturn aspect.
Mercury sextile Saturn makes it a little easier to “get a grip” and see things from a more rational perspective. It puts the Sun / Pluto paranoia under a microscope and forces you to see things as they are rather than jumping to conclusions. It forces you to rely on facts rather than conjecture and can get you thinking logically rather than irrationally.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 7, 2019 – Oct 13, 2019:
Things could be a bit tense at the start of this week with two stressful transits — the Sun squaring Saturn and Mercury opposite Uranus on Monday. The Sun / Saturn square may see you feeling like the Universe is raining on your parade, at least temporarily. It can indicate a sense of feeling trapped or prohibited from accomplishing your goals.
It represents limitations, obstacles and restrictions and may see you feeling like “what’s the use” with one roadblock after another standing in your way. But shake it off or ride it out — this is a short-lived transit that generally feels much heavier than it actually is.

Aries: Seven of Pentacles
Now would be a good time to re-evaluate a recent decision and decide your next move. Do you proceed as planned? Change directions? Or throw in the towel and start all over again?
The Seven of Pentacles — this version from the Shadowscapes Tarot — indicates a need for patience to see something through. But it can also trigger feelings of disappointment or frustration over that something taking too long to produce results.
That also brings in the potential that as those results develop they turn out to be not what you thought you wanted in the first place. You could be involved in a relationship that’s just not working out the way you hoped or a career-path that turns out to be unrewarding.
You may be mid-way through a college degree and find yourself wondering if you should change majors, or moving halfway around the world and realizing you’re homesick.
The Seven of Pentacles — like all Sevens — refers to delays, dilemmas and decisions that are not easy to resolve. This card can refer to a pause or a setback, a choice between disparate paths, or even a change in direction late in the game.
This card represents finding yourself a pivotal juncture that there’s no easy answer for. If you find yourself at a crossroads — wondering whether it’s best to hang in there or to hang it up and start all over again, your best move may just be to step back and give it some time.
