Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Nov 30, 2020 – Dec 6, 2020:
This week starts on Monday with Mercury sexiling Saturn and a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 8° Gemini 38. The Mercury / Saturn aspect — especially in heavy-handed Scorpio and Capricorn — is practical and realistic, but it can also be a bit pessimistic.
This transit can make it a little easier to “get a grip” and see things from a rational perspective. It puts whatever doubts and delusions you have under a microscope and permits 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 Forecast for the week of Nov 23, 2020 – Nov 29, 2020:
This week starts on Monday with a first quarter Moon in Pisces, where it sextiles Uranus, trines Mercury and conjuncts Neptune before the day is through. The Moon in Pisces is loving, compassionate, creative and highly impressionable. It can increase psychic awareness and make you more susceptible to outside influences. It’s mystical and ethereal, but can also be incredibly naive.
It’s not good at filtering out negative or harmful information, and can therefore be easily deceived. So try to temper some of that excess sensitivity with some good old fashioned common sense, especially if you’re inclined to attract people into your life who drain you emotionally.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Nov 16, 2020 – Nov 22, 2020:
This week starts on Monday with Venus squaring Jupiter. As squares go, this one is much more about overindulgence than it is about conflict. It can see you over-doing it, as in going above and beyond the call of duty where friends and loved ones are concerned.
It’s an expansive, indulgent energy that can also translate to biting off more than you can chew or promising more than you can deliver. You may also overestimate your ability to lend a helping hand. So take a moment to look at promises you’ve already made before you start offering more services to others.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Nov 9, 2020 – Nov 15, 2020:
We’ve got quite a busy week ahead of us with a planet (Mercury) changing signs, another planet (Mars) changing direction and a New Moon in Scorpio.
Starting on Monday, there’s a Mars / Venus opposition across the Aries / Libra axis. This transit can indicate conflicts in your relationships, with the love planet (Venus) and the planet associated with action, energy and aggression (Mars) on opposite sides of the fence.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Nov 2, 2020 – Nov 8, 2020:
This week starts on Monday with the Moon — still Full — in calm, gentle, sensuous and earthy Taurus. It trines Saturn shortly after midnight and then goes void of course around 2:30 am.
The trine to Saturn is nice because both planets are dignified by sign: the Moon in the sign of it exaltation and Saturn in the sign it rules. Although this is a relatively fleeting transit (as is the void of course Moon, which lasts around seven hours this go around), but is still a nice way to start what could turn out to be a rather tumultuous week.

Aries: Six of Swords
WIth your ruling planet (Mars) retrograde for the first part of the month and then moving forward again for the last half, you’re likely going to be similarly changing direction this month. If you’re making big changes, you’ll need to think about what you’re taking with you and what you’re leaving behind.
This isn’t necessarily material things; in fact that’s rarely what it means. It’s more about attitudes and belief systems, as well as a life you may have built and dreams you may have dreamed that are no longer capable of sustaining you.
The Six of Swords is a card of transition and change. It represents moving to a better place, even if only in your mind.
In this version — from the Mary-el Tarot — we see the Archangel Raphael guiding a pair of young children and their dog across a bridge. Where he’s leading them is not seen, but there are elements of safety, protection and comfort in this card, which is a necessary part of trusting in the unknown.
This is the message behind the Six of Swords. You may not be where you want to be just yet, but you’re moving in the right direction.
The Six of Swords reminds us that we’re not alone. We don’t get to the other side without assistance from someone, even when that “assistance” comes in the form of a setback that forces us to change direction.
It also provides clarity and perspective. We may see things we don’t want to see — or admit to ourselves — but it’s that kind of clarity that motivates us toward change. This is the first step, courtesy of the Six of Swords, toward manifesting your goals.

This month has some very interesting planetary changes as well as a lunar eclipse on November 30th.
Mercury goes into direct motion on November 3rd, the date of the US elections, which will delay the final outcome of the election as the votes are counted. Kind of a bummer in all ways.
Mercury enters the sign of Scorpio on the 10th so there is plenty of intensity and secrets to be revealed as it goes back over the degrees it retrograded through and finishes those degrees on the 19th.
Venus enters the sign of Scorpio on the 22nd, adding to the intensity as it moves towards an opposition with Uranus in Taurus. People are likely to be anxious and relationships are likely to be volatile the last week of November. Be kind.
Mars goes into direct motion on the 14th at 15° Aries, which will give a boost to all stalled projects and plans, once it gets moving forward by the end of the month.
Jupiter will make a conjunction with Pluto on the 22nd at 22° Capricorn, which can create some big event that affects the world. Saturn is 5 degrees ahead of these two planets at 27 º Capricorn and that may actually calm things down as Saturn is powerful in Capricorn and likes to restore order. Follow the rules, folks, is a Saturnian dictum.
