Monday November 13th-
The New Moon at 20’43 Scorpio is exact at 4:27am EDT- marking Lunar Samhain and commencing a new Lunar Cycle. With the New Moon tightly conjunct Mars the God of Will and War and Ceres the Great Mother and all of these Scorpio planets tightly opposites Uranus in Taurus- this Lunar Cycle looks to be one of sudden and unexpected change, liberation, freedom, upsets and/or shocks. You never know what you are going to get with Uranus- he is the planet of unpredictability. With Uranus in Taurus there can be unpredictable and unexpected things happening in the financial market and/or the environment (possibly big earthquakes)- and with Ceres involved this can also impact mothers, children, safety and security. This is a POWERFUL NEW MOON.

At 10:05am Ceres in Scorpio trines Retrograde Neptune in Pisces- harmoniously aligning the planet of Compassion and Empathy with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. Neptune/Ceres is the compassionate, ever-loving mother who would do anything for her young. Taking time to nourish and nurture ourselves and others in our lives is supported right now. With both bodies in Water signs the emotional energy is high- which can prove to be emotionally healing if we are ready, willing and able to really feel all that is coming up for us this week.
The Sun in Scorpio opposes Retrograde Uranus in Taurus at 12:21pm- creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the Great Awakener! With the Sun, New Moon, Mars and Ceres all opposite Uranus this month there is lots of upheaval, change and perhaps chaos playing out in our values, material attachments, relationships and that which we hold onto. If we are holding onto things that don’t serve our evolution anymore- this is a time to cut your losses. The more you hold on the more intense the month can be. Let go to grow!
At 4:33pm Venus in Libra sesquiquadrates Retrograde Uranus in Taurus- creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Rebel and Revolutionary. With both bodies in Venus-ruled signs we can find that women, the feminine, relationships, the earth, money and more are getting wake up shake up energy! The New Moon this morning was opposite Uranus, then the Sun opposed Uranus and finally Venus tensely aspects Uranus. Uranus is the planet of unpredictability and he governs the unexpected. Expect the unexpected is a great mantra for today! Stay open to change and be aware that the earth is moving under our feet (literally in terms of the many earthquakes and volcanos erupting right now) as well as metaphorically. Change can be freeing and liberating if you allow it to be!
Tuesday November 14th-
At 8:08pm Mars in Scorpio quincunxes the Mean North Node in Aries- creating tension between the God of War and the Node of Destiny. Mars rules both Scorpio and Aries and there is some extra potent intensity surrounding the astrology right now. At best we can use Mars to take action and take a stand- but the shadow is this can devolve in power/over, power/under dynamics, domination and control. Today through the 16th Mars triggers the Eris/North Node conjunction- so channel your ego and will wisely so that it is serving something Higher. If your ego is in the driver’s seat things can get SUPER INTENSE right now.
From today through Thursday the Sun and Mars trigger the Eris/North Node conjunction. You can read my blog about it here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/eris-conjunct-the-north-node-awaken-all-heart-warriors/
Wednesday November 15th-
At 12:19am Pallas Athena in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn- creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the Lord of the Underworld. Pallas in Libra wants peace and harmony and is focused on fairness and justice. The square to Pluto in Capricorn is exposing the shadows in patriarchal institutions, governments, leaders and more. This can be a power struggle between those that want peace and those that want control and domination. Pluto is exposing the shadows that are beneath the surface- so if you have been sweeping things under the carpet to maintain appearances know that things can be coming up right now (also because of the strong Uranus/Eris present). As this transit occurs in the early morning hours- pay attention to your dreams upon waking for messages from the Unconscious.
Mercury in Sagittarius sextiles Venus in Libra at 7:48am- linking the Mind and the Heart in harmonious ways. Mercury wants the Truth in Sagittarius and Venus wants peace in Libra- yet their aspect with each other is in the midst of intense triggers by Saturn 11/8-10, and by Jupiter today through tomorrow. The two Teacher Planets are schooling our Love and Light tendencies to want to only see the positive and only see the beautiful. At best we can use this astrology to have heart to heart talks and honestly share and honestly listen- but we have to watch out for bravado and hubris (Jupiter) as well as denial and escapism (Saturn in Pisces).
At 9:22am the Sun in Scorpio semisquares Venus in Libra- creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the Goddess of Love and Beauty. These two are in deeply relational signs but they have different focuses relationally. Scorpio wants to dive deep and face the shadow, whereas Libra wants peace, harmony and to keep things light. In relationships there can be conflict between the two positions with a need to find a new median place to meet on. Shadows and depth vs surface and light can feel at odds right now. Find a bridge!
Mercury in Sagittarius sesquiquadrates the North Node in Aries and semisquares the South Node in Libra at 2:59pm- creating tension between the Mind and Intellect and the Nodes of Destiny & Karma. Important information, communications and insights incoming can be at odds with what we know about the past and/or the future. Being open to seeing new truths and to questioning what we think we know and where we think we are right is key!
At 6:00pm the Sun in Scorpio quincunxes the Mean North Node in Aries- creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the Node of Destiny and Evolution. Today through tomorrow the Sun triggers the Eris/North Node conjunction- bringing lots of fire and power to harness but also to be aware of misusing and abusing. The God of War is strong right now. The Sacred Protector and Defender of life and innocence we need- the warmonger and violent aggressor we do not need. Choose wisely.
Mercury in Sagittarius quincunxes Retrograde Jupiter in Taurus at 10:35pm- creating tension between the Mind and Intellect and the planet of expansion and excess. Jupiter rules Sagittarius so we double down on the Jupiter/Sagittarius energy right now. We want to speak and be heard, as well as travel and see the world- just make sure you are not so self righteous that you can only see the world through your own lens while making everyone else wrong.
Thursday November 16th-
At 2:48am Venus in Libra quincunxes Retrograde Jupiter in Taurus- creating tension between the two Benefic planets who are both in Venus-ruled signs. If our desires for peace, Love and beauty are not balanced with wanting to see and address the shadow- this astrology can magnify those imbalances. Too much of a good thing can be too much! Watch out for overdoing, overspending, over eating and generally using the material world to escape from reality today.
TODAY IS A VERY ERIS-IAN DAY! from 8am to 8pm we have 3 Planets tensely aspecting Eris. Hold onto your horses and channel her energy wisely for activism, empowerment, taking a stand and speaking Truth! You can read my blog about this very powerful transit here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/eris-conjunct-the-north-node-awaken-all-heart-warriors/
Mars in Scorpio quincunxes Retrograde Eris in Aries at 8:17am- creating tension and friction between the Will, Warrior and Drive and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. Deep things are being penetrated into with a need to see what is beneath the surface that no one wants to see. This can play out personally and collectively. Mars in scorpio wants you to ruthlessly face any and all shadow pieces within the self that up until now you have avoided, denied, projected or disassociated with. With Eris involved we have the Dark Goddess tossing the Apple of Discord into areas of life that on the surface look shiny and pretty but underneath they are toxic, decaying and in need of some clearing out. If you happen feel anger, rage, irritation or frustration today- know that this part of this astrological signature. Any intense energy coming up needs to be navigated and the key is in working with these emotions consciously- not stuffing them or repressing them, but not acting out in them either. Looking at our shadow relationship to sexuality, control, dominance, lower vibration desires that come from the ego, fear, jealousy, possessiveness and more is the focus right now. If you are willing to do deep work- Mars and Eris will rise with you and support you as you move through the valley of the shadow of death (a psychic place where we get faced with our biggest stuff). If you are not willing to do this deep work then you may find chaotic, unpredictable energy and events coming into your life which seem like fate. The key is in realizing we create our fate by the actions we take- both present and past. A true creator takes responsibility for his/her actions in the past and makes changes in how he/she acts in the present so as to impact the future. The only point of power is in the NOW! Use it wisely!
At 8:56am Mercury in Sagittarius sesquiquadrates Retrograde Eris in Aries- creating friction between the Mind and Intellect and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos! Keeping the mind open is key right now. Having healthy expressions for anger and rage is necessary. Sudden, unexpected and perhaps shocking information, communications and aha moments incoming can radically put us on a new path. Willingness to embrace change and see the Truth as it is is recommended.
The Sun in Scorpio quincunxes Retrograde Eris in Aries at 8:19pm- creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. Sun/Eris can bring up some big stuff from the shadows- so navigating emotional terrain with consciousness is important. With both bodies in Mars-ruled signs having a healthy expression/connection to anger and rage is important. Don’t stuff it but don’t react in it either. Being willing to see and own the shadow is the path to empowerment right now. It’s a great day to take action just make sure it’s not reaction but rather a thoughtful response. Thoughtful actions have power right now!
Friday November 17th-
At 3:36am Mars in Scorpio trines Retrograde Neptune in Pisces- sweetly aligning the Will, Warrior and Drive with the planet of Mysticism, Idealism and Spirituality. At best Mars/Neptune is inspired, creative, romantic and a spiritual warrior. At worst, Mars/Neptune is deluded, deceptive, confused and lacks direction and clarity. Tapping into the Highest expression of Mars/Neptune is recommended- and the best avenues to do so are through meditation, art, selfless service and mystical pursuits.
Venus in Libra semisquares Mars in Scorpio at 7:21am- creating tension between the Divine Lovers in potent ways. Venus is in her home sign and Mars is as well- which strengthens their positions as well as amplifies the polarization between them. Venus is inherently relational and collaborative- whereas Mars is inherently independent and combative. Put the two together and there can be issues coming up in relationships today that need navigating. This is a carry over of the Sun/Venus semisquare from Wednesday morning. Venus is triggering the Sun and Mars as the head to conjunction early tomorrow morning. These are the last aspects the Sun and Mars make as they end a previous cycle that began October 7th 2021. Connect the dots between then and now to see the greater story arc that is completing.
At 9:52am the Sun in Scorpio trines Retrograde Neptune in Pisces- aligning the Conscious Self and ego with the planet of Spirituality and Idealism. This is a dreamy, romantic, creative and altruistic combo. Give yourself time to meditate, create and just BE rather than do with this watery astrology. Pay attention to emotions, intuition and inner experience. There are riches there to discover.
The Sun/Mars conjunction exact tomorrow is in harmonious alignment with Neptune today. As it is the end of a previous Sun/Mars cycle- today is a great day to surrender, let go and open up to receive inspiration incoming that will inform the new cycle that lies ahead.
Saturday November 18th-
At 12:42am the Sun cojoins Mars at 25’36 Scorpio- aligning the two yang, masculine planets in a sign of depth, intensity and transformation. Sun/Mars is activating- we are fired up and ready to take a stand. If we use the Scorpio energies wisely we can DIVE DEEP and get to the Truth of matters- within and without. This is excellent for therapy, shadow work and shamanic journeys. The shadow of this combination is if we are using the ego to wield power. If it’s not the Higher Will that is leading things can devolve into power struggles, authoritarianism, violence and domination. CHOOSE WISELY the energy you personally express- knowing that it will contribute to the collective expression. As within, so without.
Mercury in Sagittarius semisquares Pluto in Capricorn at 11:59pm- creating tension between the Mind and Intellect and the Lord of the Underworld. This is great astrology to get to the bottom of things via research, investigation, therapy, shadow work and inner inquiry. Mercury in Sagittarius brings the desire for Truth while Pluto in Capricorn brings the focus to exposing what is in the shadow. Yet this is a tense aspect so watch out for power/control dynamics in communication, hubris and self righteousness. Being willing to both see the Truth and speak the Truth is key!
Sunday November 19th-
Pallas Athena moves out of Libra and into Scorpio at 4:00am- shifting the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess from Air to Water, thinking to feeling, peace and harmony focused to focus on the depths and what lies in the shadow. Pallas in deep and transformative Scorpio is amazing for research, investigation, shadow work, therapy and soul/spirit surgery. The capacity to get to the core of the matter and see through the shit is profound with Pallas in Scorpio. Using her deep discernment in alignment with her profound sense of instinct and intuition is key during her transit through the Sign of Pluto. Dive deep!
Have a blessed week…
