VENUS IN LIBRA: NOV. 8 – DEC. 4
This month, Venus returns to her rulership in Libra, energized with agency and autonomy. Her influence will cut through the harsh aspects of November, bringing sweetness while empowering women and the arts. In Libra, she’s well-resourced to boost partnership, harmony, collaboration, beauty and integrity, so take advantage! The world is deeply divided but Venus promises to an opportunity to seek common ground. While we may not see it on the world stage, we can embrace it in our own lives. It’s time for tactful negotiations, effortless harmony and new alliances. Venus calls us to seek togetherness.
MERCURY IN SAGITTARIUS: NOV. 10 – DEC.
In Sagittarius, Mercury is outspoken and vocal—a little stubborn and impetuous, but expansive and optimistic. This isn’t the greatest spot for Mercury, so details, analytical thinking and organization may go out the window. Go with your gut and take some risks, don’t be afraid to give voice to how you really feel. Ideally, it’s time to expand our minds, explore wisdom and seek more profound meaning. On the world stage, this Mercury energy may lead to more conflict, but in our personal lives we can find the positive and harness it.
Important to note: Mercury is future-seeking right, projecting endless possibilities into the world. But in this transit, that instinct will clash with Saturn’s stern reality check. It’s a celestial glitch, and we have to balance Mercury’s “go go go” with Saturn’s “no no no.” Try not to overextend yourself and determine if you have the resources (time, energy, money) to pursue your dreams. Saturn’s influence is cautious and deliberate, squelching our impetuousness. Mercury here invites us to look to the future and set our sights there.
NEW MOON IN SCORPIO: NOV. 14
The upcoming New Moon in Scorpio portends intensity and volatility on the world stage from Oct. 11-15. We may feel some of that in our lives, so find ways to deescalate the drama instead of feeding it. It all begins within us. This transit finds the moon at 20 degrees of Scorpio, conjoining Mars in Scorpio—the planet’s ruler. However, Mars’ placement under the beams of the Sun create hidden, strategic and secretive tendencies. Meanwhile, Uranus opposes the lunation, creating sudden changes and bringing forth shifts and breakthroughs. Uranus encourages us to break free from convention, embrace individuality and challenge the status quo.
This astrological chaos may even feel like an eclipse due to the unpredictable energy, so remain flexible. Set a specific goal or challenge (big or small) that you can achieve under the New Moon. Use the excitement as a reset to move forward with single-minded determination. This can create that awakening or a breakthrough, freeing you from old patterns or limitations.
Right after the New Moon, the Sun will oppose Uranus; from November 11-14, the energy is highly unpredictable. Here’s a thought for the New Moon: Let’s take care of each other, even those with whom we disagree. May breakthroughs of kindness prevail.
MARS CAZMINI THE SUN IN SCORPIO: NOV. 18
The highlight of November is when Mars begins a new two-year cycle in Scorpio. This cazmini brings Mars to the “heart” of the sun, purifying and clearing out old fears. It’s time to bravely and courageously move forward, with Mars’ very best qualities (boldness, bravery) strengthened and amplified. This brings extreme focus and an ability to get to the core of something. Truths are revealed, revelations have the potential to be revolutionary. What drives you? In this cazmini, new beginnings come through tactile, secret, strategic actions. Carefully choose where to hone your energy, because Mars in Scorpio is decisive and sharp. We can become obsessed with achieving the goal or challenge we set out. This renewal lasts two years, but the new clarity and bravery starts now—so set that transformative goal!
SUN IN SAGITTARIUS: NOV. 22
As we leave the inward and reflective energy of Scorpio, we move into the upward and outward energy of Sagittarius. And just like that, our point-of-view shifts. The Sun in Sagittarius is uplifting and expansive, bringing vibrancy, vitality and confidence. It enhances expansive energy, adventure and the need for movement. We are now drawn to what brings meaning and purpose to our lives, such as spirituality and philosophy. You’ll feel an eagerness to move forward, assessing the vast possibilities before you. Sagittarius season brings enthusiasm, hope, optimism and, hopefully, a greater tolerance for others.
MARS IN SAGITTARIUS: NOV. 24 – JAN. 4
Mars in Sagittarius creates a fiery energy for the Sag season. It’s adventurous, courageous and willing to give things a try. We can feel restless, feeling eager to push our limits, test boundaries and experiment with risk. It’s daring—but not reckless—energy, inviting us to stretch and expand our horizons. Mars in Sagittarius is not about details or practicality; It’s about about being in the moment and living life to the fullest. The practicalities can wait until Mars enters Capricorn in January.
FULL MOON IN GEMINI: NOV. 27
Get ready for some social stimulation: The Full Moon in Gemini offers mental energy to burn and share. It’s curious, social and creates that buzzy, extroverted, life-of-the-party energy. You might feel a little overstimulated so rest up and look after your nervous system to avoid overload. Nevertheless, your heightened desire for connection is a gift for the holiday season. Just watch out for scatteredness and haziness (while Mercury squares Neptune), mindfulness is the antidote to forgetfulness. Details may come and go but keep your mind as sharp as you can to avoid misinformation and misunderstanding. While Mars opposes the Moon, stay tuned for drama and watch out for sharp outbursts. Try not to over-commit yourself and carve out the “me time” you need to keep emotions in check.
