Sunday, November 16. Pragmatic contact with the right people today encourages a sense of empowerment. It feels great to be understood. It feels empowering to get our message across. Mercury in Scorpio is sextile Pluto in Capricorn. This favorable aspect between these two planets gives strength and substance to our thoughts and words. Notice when you feel connected to your own strength. What insights arise? Remember your return journey from the depths of your soul (see introduction to this week’s forecast) that the Scorpio season offers. What understanding do you bring back? Venus enters Sagittarius. There is a distinct shift away from introversion to expansion. Suddenly, we want to plan holiday parties.
Monday, November 17. The quincunx between Uranus and Mercury has us stretching to understand strange new ideas. Ideas are powerful, just as the words we use to express those ideas are important. What challenges your perception of reality? Uranus’s prime directive is to wake us up to change. Are you ready? Mercury in watery Scorpio also contacts Chiron in watery Pisces. What role does compassion play in helping you welcome uncomfortable new ideas? Identifying with someone else’s pain supports open mindedness. Thoughts turn to justice with the Moon entering Libra. Is it possible to apply the sensations of empathy and enlightenment to this desire for fairness?
Thursday, November 20. The temptation to fall in love today is strong. Venus squares Neptune and a little bit of each of us is ready to cast good sense to the wind and believe this new love (whether it is a person or an idea) is the best ever! The heart is a muscle that needs to be exercised. Feelings of expansive connection to others is necessary to keep our hearts toned, even if the new infatuation turns out not to be that good for us. Venus has just entered Sagittarius and this transit is her initiation into this fire sign. Begin to dream big and notice how attractive adventure, truth, and meaning can be. Freedom is the Siren’s call.
Moon in Scorpio
Friday, November 21. On the last day of the Scorpio lunar cycle honor the deep journey, give thanks for the unseen world, and return to the living world. Mercury, the guide of souls, makes an encouraging contact with Mars in Capricorn. We feel energized by deep release. Transformation is possible and we can use this experience to build strong foundations. The Moon in Scorpio touches Mars and Mercury as well, adding a level of emotional satisfaction. Remember this when the Moon squares Jupiter and conjoins Saturn later today. Self-doubt and negative self-talk could creep in. This is not why we took the underworld journey. Find another way to honor your soul.
