In Astrology, Insight and Experience by Stella WoodsLeave a Comment

Communication planet Mercury slides into Scorpio on the 2nd for a three week visit. Scorpio is a psychically-attuned water sign so expect some surprising insights or revelations during this period. These could come in the form of dreams, hunches, gut feelings, sudden epiphanies or chance meetings. Mercury in Scorpio is also an ideal time for all forms of research and planning.

November Planetary Shifts

Communication planet Mercury slides into Scorpio on the 2nd for a three week visit. Scorpio is a psychically-attuned water sign so expect some surprising insights or revelations during this period. These could come in the form of dreams, hunches, gut feelings, sudden epiphanies or chance meetings. Mercury in Scorpio is also an ideal time for all forms of research and planning.

Relationship planet Venus and Mars meet up on the 3rd November in late Virgo for their third and final encounter this year. The focus is on healing and improving relationships; acting with love, forgiveness and compassion and making more conscious choices. After all, unless we create a bond of authenticity and truth with ourselves, it is impossible to have an honest relationship with someone else. Venus moves into ruling sign Libra on the 9th meeting up with the North Node on the same day, while Mars follows Venus into Libra on the 13th. November is a favourable time for all kinds of personal and business negotiations providing we genuinely understand and appreciate the other’s point of view.

The karmic North Node shifts into Virgo on the 12th meeting up with Mars at 29° Virgo. The North Node will be in Virgo for the next year and a half, emphasising soul-body balance; health, creativity and service.

Featured Sign – Scorpio

The Sun travels through water sign Scorpio from the 23rd October until 22nd November. Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac with keywords “I survive” and “I am intense”. Scorpio has three symbols, the scorpion, representing Scorpio’s lower nature, her jealousy, desire for revenge and tendency to manipulate others; the eagle, representing Scorpio’s ability to soar above emotional attachment thus accessing the true power of the sign and finally the holy dove, symbol of divine love, compassion and forgiveness. Those born under the sign of the Scorpion are usually loyal, strong and courageous. They love exploring the mysteries of life – birth, death, sexuality, reincarnation and anything taboo. They have a reputation for being passionate, secretive and highly sexual and due to their emotional intensity, often have to deal with issues of trust and betrayal. Negatively, Scorpios can be possessive, jealous, vindictive, destructive and manipulative, particularly when hurt or betrayed. In medical astrology, Scorpio rules the organs of elimination and reproduction including the urinary tract, bowel, prostate gland and nasal bones. When Scorpios are out of balance they can suffer from haemorrhoids, constipation, urinary tract infections, menstrual and reproductive problems plus catarrh and sinus problems. The Scorpio colours are dark red, purple, dark green and black. Scorpio’s greatest lesson is to learn to let go on an emotional level and forgive.

November New Moon – Express Your Feelings

The November new moon falls on the 12th in secretive, sensual Scorpio (19-20°) with the Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury and trine Chiron. This new moon encourages us to express our feelings, especially the more challenging ones, and to believe in the healing power of love.

November Moon Calendar

Launch projects at the New Moon, bring them to completion in the period from just before the Full Moon to the Third Quarter phase and wind them down and reflect on developments in the week before the next New Moon. Important events such as parties, conferences and weddings are best held close to the Full Moon or when the Moon is in the same sign as your Sun (or Star) sign.
