We have some interesting cosmic vibes to contend with this month beginning with the Sun doing its annual opposition to Jupiter this year on November 1st at 9 degrees of Scorpio / 9 degrees of Taurus.
This can bring some good fortune to people with planets around those degrees so be ready for some blessing to make its way to your door if you have a planet or birth chart angles close to that degree. Accept the boon with gratitude, joy and spread love and generosity around.
Next, we have Saturn going into direct motion on November 4th. This happens at 0 degrees 30’ in Pisces so all the early degrees of the mutable signs have been directly affected by his retrograde in June at 7 degrees, going back to 0 degrees. Think about what you learned during the past 5 months as this transit was happening.
Saturn leaves a gift after any transit that personally affects one’s chart so if that is the case for you, accept it gracefully, realize the significance and incorporate it in your life.
Mercury moves from 15 degrees of Scorpio to 28 degrees of Sagittarius during the month. He will still be close to Mars for the first 4 days so remember to keep critical thoughts to yourself. The world needs peacemakers not irritating complainers or faultfinding whiners, now more than ever.
Venus transits through the last 8 degrees of Virgo and enters Libra, a sign she rules, on the 9th so that will make for more harmonious relationships and appreciation for love and beauty in the world.
Mars will still be causing some issues in the world as it will be combust the Sun, not always exact by degree, but within 5 degrees all month. On the new Moon of November 13th, the Sun, Moon and Mars together will oppose Uranus at 21 degrees of Scorpio/Taurus, which makes for a very volatile day and including the three or four days leading up to it. Unexpected events, sudden accidents, fires or unusual circumstances can occur with aspects to Uranus, particularly when Mars is involved.
The day of Mars exact conjunction with the Sun is Nov 18th and it occurs at just under 26 degrees of Scorpio and will be moving into a challenging square aspect with Saturn. This is a contentious and difficult aspect that has a military signature so there may be more conflicts arising in the world, I’m sorry to say.
I hope Saturn will deliver a gift of wisdom, clarity and sane solutions to all conflicts. Saturn is transiting Pisces, the sign of Venus’ exaltation and Venus is transiting Libra, the sign of Saturn’s exaltation and this mutual exchange offers some degree of hope for a peaceful outcome. Make it so!
Jupiter is still in its retrograde motion phase and moves from 10 degrees back to 7 degrees of Taurus, a bit out of orb of the difficulties mid-month but by the end of November it will make a sextile connection with Saturn, which offers some promise of stability.
Uranus is retrograde in Taurus and moves from 21 degrees 35’ to 20 degrees 24’. As previously mentioned, this gets activated by the New Moon on the 13th, so use caution when out and about in the world.
Neptune is retrograde in Pisces and transits from 25 degrees 13’ to 24 degrees 54’ and makes a trine aspect with the Sun and Mars on the 18th. This can give a magical thinking vibe to whatever is going on and one has to be self-aware about blindly trusting words. Actions always tell the tale.
Pluto is getting his move on through Capricorn from 27 degrees 59’ forward to 28 degrees 28’ by the month’s end where he will not return for another 248 years. Hallelujah!
Read your Sun sign and Rising sign for best results:
Aries — March 21-April 19: Mars may cause issues for you this month with its many difficult aspects and its combustion with the Sun, so you can anticipate some tension, stress and challenges to your authority all month. It is better to find a productive way to deal with this overload of Mars energy than just be mad about it. Being aware that you can be easily triggered now allows you to make adjustments in your lifestyle to use it in a manner that could return positive results to you, like exercise, martial arts or hard physical work. Your best days are the 22nd, 23rd and AM hours of the 24th.
Taurus — April 20-May 20: Your ruling planet, Venus, will enter Libra, another sign she rules on the 9th so you get a more of a chance to shine after that happens. Saturn going direct will also help you manifest the things you want as it will sextile your sign, giving support for work and discipline. Yes, there are 2 planets and the Sun in Scorpio being a bit critical but that energy wanes after the new Moon on the 13th. Hang in there and shake off any bad vibes residue. Your stellar days are the PM hours of the 24th, the 25th and 26th.
Gemini — May 21-June 21: Mercury is moving past its conjunction with Mars so your inner critic, as well as the outer ones, will be less demanding within about a week. Saturn going direct is still squaring your sign so you must incorporate some discipline and right action into your life, particularly if something fell apart for you in the past 5 months. Guard your health this month as you could be prone to inflammation or infection around the new Moon on the 13th. Days to enjoy your blessings are the 1st, the Full Moon on the 27th and the 28th.
Cancer — June 22-July 23: You have a nice water trine aspect with Saturn going direct in Pisces and 2 planets and the Sun in Scorpio happening for most of the month. It’s time to move into some stability and harmony with your life as you have a greater ability and understanding about what you can accomplish in the near future. If something changes around the new Moon on the 13th, let it. What replaces it will work out better for you anyway. Your best days are the 2nd, 3rd, 29th and 30th.
Leo — July 24-August 23: While there is quite a bit of tension present in life’s current circumstances for you, with Jupiter protectively at the top of your chart, your desires will be fulfilled in due time. The struggle is real between what you want from the outside world and what your family requires from you this month. Give it up for the family as this is the foundational support of life. Best days to get your way, however, are the 4th, 5th, and AM hours of the 6th.
Virgo — August 24-September 22: Yes, the Saturn station in Pisces is opposite your sign but my experience with Virgos is that they maintain a lot of discipline on their own terms and definitely have a work ethic so this may not feel oppressive to you at all. But it will give you the option of knowing how much work is too much and backing off from taking too much on. Venus in your sign for the next 9 days and will give you the ability to gracefully decline. Your days of grace and power are the PM hours of the 6th, the 7th and the 8th.
Libra — September 23-October 22: Venus enters your sign on the 9th so you have more power after that happens. Venus is currently opposing Neptune so there is some magical thinking possible which is quite good for creative projects, but not great in matters relating to your health. If you have any weird symptoms, get them checked out. The stellium of planets in Scorpio in your 2nd house of money and assets may present some additional expenses or challenges as to how to allocate the money you have. Hang in there, solutions will just be delayed, not denied. The 9th and 10th are your stellar days.
Scorpio — October 23-November 22: This month holds the potential for a lot of intensity and/or drama in your life with Mercury, Mars and the Sun occupying your sign. The New Moon has the most potential for upset or harm so be aware of your surroundings and don’t take risks between the 12th and 18th. All this energy can break through a stalemate or stagnant situation or project if you look for ways to see things differently. Your best days are the 11th, 12th and 13th.
Sagittarius — November 23-December 20: With 2 planets and the Sun in Scorpio in your solar 12th house being opposed by 2 planets in Taurus in your 6th house, there may be a serious health issue facing you right now. Don’t delay in taking care of something that’s been on the periphery for months as the critical time is now, particularly around the new Moon on the 13th. Jupiter, your ruling planet, does have protective energy for you but there is still plenty of volatility present this month. Use the positive vibes of the 14th and 15th to gain greater understanding of your situation.
Capricorn — December 21-January 20: With Saturn going into direct motion on the 4th, you will have more momentum to accomplish your goals and desires. Learn from the last 5 months what actions accomplished the most and put your energy into those tasks. The planets in Scorpio have your back at this time but there still may be some intensity or drama in the professional groups or associations you belong to. Ease is the pace of alignment so pay attention to that vibe. The 16th and 17th are your power days.
Aquarius — January 21-February 19: With the planets in Scorpio in your solar 10th house opposing the two planets in Taurus in your solar 4th, there is the very real struggle between professional life and home life balance. With Saturn going direct on the 4th, you will have the ability to prioritize and please both camps with a workable compromise. Take some time off on the 18th and 19th to restore your sanity after the pressures of the last 2 months.
Pisces — February 20-March 20: Saturn going direct in your sign will give you an opening to accustom yourself to some new parameters or boundaries in life. Neptune, also in your sign, is in opposition to Venus, which may give you some magical thinking moments but Saturn wants to stabilize that situation. Think of it as a reality check and operate within those parameters. Some restrictions are more about protection than prohibition. Act accordingly. Your stellar days are the 20th and 21st.
