Monday, November 9. The Moon is in Libra most of the day and void-of-course too until entering Scorpio in the late evening (CST). (Void-of-course is a period of time that can feel listless or lacking direction). Under the Libra influence, we may be weighing our choices. You might be feeling indecisive. The agitating factor that could force you to make a decision before you are ready is the quincunx aspect between the Sun in Scorpio (fixed water) and Uranus in Aries (cardinal fire). Anything simmering under the surface could suddenly erupt. Be careful as you negotiate a day where being non-committal could be the best course of action. As an anchor, tap into your heart wisdom, with the Sun’s trine to Chiron in Pisces (mutable water).
Tuesday, November 10. Words are powerful at any time, but maybe even more so today. The favorable aspect between Mercury in Scorpio (fixed water) and Pluto in Capricorn (cardinal earth) gives power to our words. Make them count. We especially want to share our deeper, emotion-fueled truths. No time for vacuous communication. On top of that, we are feeling lucky too with a favorable aspect between the Sun in Scorpio and Jupiter in Virgo (mutable earth). This is a great transit under which to initiate transformation and healing. Since this is the last day of this lunar cycle, allow a moment to release and empty. Be good to yourself and begin to think about a new lunar cycle beginning tomorrow. What is stirring in your soul?
November 11—New Moon: Dreaming. The unseen world feeds the world we see around us. We are in constant exchange. The season of Samhain is marked by this awareness that we are in relationship to the unseen and that we owe this world a debt. The land of the dead, the roots beneath us, the mysterious flow of energy, all these realms come into focus when the veil between the worlds thins. Today’s New Moon in Scorpio is another moment to notice the relationships we have with all the worlds. An excellent intention to follow this lunar cycle would be to tend the relationship we have with the “other side.” Perhaps this means looking at your fears around death or your resistance to emotional experience. It could mean devoting yourself to serving some aspect of that world. How do you bring honor and respect to your ancestors?
Thursday, November 12. Yesterday’s New Moon may have felt dreamy and otherworldly, but that changes today. With the Moon’s ingress into Sagittarius (mutable fire) our attention turns to the worlds of philosophy, adventure, and possibility. Mercury in Scorpio (fixed water) is busy today too, first making a trine to Chiron in Pisces (mutable water) and then a quincunx to Uranus in Aries (cardinal fire). Expect to uncover new insights. There could be breakthroughs, especially if you are willing to think outside the box. Chiron reminds us to stay connected to our hearts. There is a lot to learn by empathizing with others. Mars moves into Libra (cardinal air) today. Since Libra is opposite one of the signs that Mars rules (Aries), this planet will have to make adjustments to truly feel comfortable in this sign. We will feel that awkwardness in our relationships. But the opportunity is to blend an awareness of how others are feeling with what we want for ourselves. The opportunity is to learn to be more gentle for the next two months.
Friday, November 13. With its association with witches and warnings to beware misfortune, Friday the 13th is the perfect note to strike at the end of this Scorpio season. Witches are comfortable with the things others might find fearful. But perhaps this is just a willingness to see things as they are. Try on your own witchy senses today. I recommend Terry Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching books to get a sense of how a real witch behaves. There really isn’t much to fear today. In fact, things move along swimmingly. A favorable aspect between Venus in Libra (cardinal air) and Saturn in Sagittarius (mutable fire) feeds security in our relationships. The favorable aspect between Mercury in Scorpio (fixed water) and Jupiter in Virgo (mutable earth) creates connection with others. Find your mode of expression and go for it.
Saturday, November 14. Choice can be hard when you see so many sides to the issue. We might struggle with decision-making today because we see so many sides. The quincunx between Venus in Libra (cardinal air) and Neptune in Pisces (mutable water) expands what we are able to perceive. The problem is that this doesn’t necessarily bring more clarity. The obvious solution may be only an illusion. When the Moon moves into Capricorn tonight (CST) it is time to shake off the fog.
