November 2017

Starwise Forecast for November

We enter November only two days before the Full Moon on the 3rd.

Scorpio Glyph
Scorpio Oct 22 – Nov 20

3 – The Sun in Scorpio/Moon in Taurus Full Moon opposition. We have three planets in Scorpio already right now, with another entering later this month. So the Fall, Halloween, entering the dark time of the year, and all of the brooding unconscious emotional energies that engenders has been and will continue to build this month.

This Full Moon has the conscious Solar Scorpionic energies at odds with, being challenged by, the unconscious Lunar Taurean energies.

I sometimes glibly paraphrase Taurus energies as: ‘Is it for the love or for the money?’. It’s a Venus ruled sign, but an earthy one, so the feelings are there but how will they manifest/express?

With Scorpio energies involved the desire element is heightened. Will we take the high road or the low road?

The Sun and the Moon are both trining and sextiling, both harmonizing, with Neptune in Pisces. Some divine, transcendental, surrendered compassionate feeling energy can help us to feel the bliss of the High Road.

Venus in Libra starts out this day also harmonizing, sextiling, with Saturn in Sagittarius, hence some grounded, discipline and commitment towards one’s moral beliefs can also be helpful in all of our relationships.

Later that charming, romantic Venus in Libra gets challenged by, squared, by Uranus in Aries, 22 minutes before the exact Full Moon opposition

One may expect some emotional/relational surprises/sudden liberating impulses.

5 – Mercury moves out of the Scorpio energy field into the fiery, willful, domain of Sagittarius, until January 10th.

7 – Venus moves out of Libra into the emotional, passionate, instinctive realm of Scorpio, until Christmas Eve, December 24th.

9 – The Sun in Scorpio harmonizes, sextiles, with Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto rules Scorpio, so his deep investigation into the true motives of our emotional patterns and desires should be welcomed. And we may feel more comfortable than usual at doing what it takes to transform the less than noble motivations.

11 – Saturn in Sagittarius harmonizes with, trines, Uranus in Aries. This is all taking place in the dynamic fiery realms of Sagittarius and Aries. Saturn and Uranus are not all that easy with each other, however. Saturn is Security. Uranus is Freedom. Saturn is the Conventional. Uranus is the Unconventional. Today they can find a fiery, inspired way to blend their perspectives in a harmonious way.

13 – The Jupiter in Scorpio theme, of which I wrote about in my Harvey Weinstein article, gets some extra passionate, emotional attention as Venus in Scorpio conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio. Watch those seemingly uncontrollable desires. Or go ahead and thoroughly enjoy them. You must decide.

Later in the day there could be some challenging mental confusion as to what to say as Mercury in fiery Sagittarius squares Neptune in watery Pisces.

16 – Venus in Scorpio harmonizes with, trines, Neptune in Pisces. This all takes place in the watery emotional realm, but positive Neptune like this can lift those emotional, passionate Scorpionic feelings and desires to a higher, altruistic, unconditionally loving state. It could also be a good night for some tantric/spiritual sex.

17 – Mercury in Sagittarius harmonizes with, sextiles, Mars in Libra. Mars in Libra can create some feistiness in relationships. The honest, moral mental quality of Mercury in Sagittarius can help to clarify, communicate, and understand things with a better perspective.

18 – The Sun conjunct Moon in Scorpio New Moon. This time we have passed nearly through the whole month of Scorpio before this day of the annual conscious and unconscious alignment of the Scorpionic emotional, desire energies and passions. Nonetheless, this is the time to dedicate this alignment to the highest purposes.

19 – Mars in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. That relationally challenged Mars in Libra is going to be challenged further by finding itself at odds with, some deep Plutonian transformative, yet hidden undercurrents and energies. Being in Capricorn this could entail hidden agendas in the structures of our society and our individual lives. Remember to choose Love and not Fear.

21 – The previous Plutonian tension gets lightened today as Venus in Scorpio harmonizes with, sextiles, Pluto in Capricorn. So a renewed passion for transformation, or a new comfort with deep investigation and transformation of old passions, or, hopefully, both.

Later in the day the Sun goes into the month of Sagittarius.

22 – Neptune stands still in its retrograde motion and moves direct, thus a deep Neptunian day. A good time to dissolve in the most profound ways.

25 – Mercury in Sagittarius trines, harmonizes with, Uranus in Aries. This harmony all takes place in the fiery willful realm. But positive Mercury/Uranus always heightens intuition. It certainly creates a mental energy that is open to the unusual and feels a freedom in unique communications. Being in Sagittarian and Arian fire signs we can really let it rip.

27 – Mercury conjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius. Following on from the 25th, that intuitive, honest, Mercurial/Sagittarian inspired enthusiasm can use some Saturn to make it ‘real,’ to commit, to make it concretely manifest.
