monday november 23rd-
venus in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces at 6:50pm, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Higher Heart of compassion, illusion and idealism. venus/neptune is usually great for romance, creativity and spirituality but due to the tense nature of the aspect we can find ourselves checking out, escaping, turning to addictions to numb out and overall just preferring to be in denial. take the rose colored glasses off so that you are dealing with relationships, finances and more with eyes wide open!
mercury in scorpio trines retrograde neptune in pisces at 8:40pm, aligning the conscious mind and intellect with the planet of mysticism, intuition and compassion. mercury/neptune is lovely for spirituality, mysticism, dreams and imagination. with both bodies in water signs letting the emotions flow and focusing on communicating from the Higher Heart is supported right now.
tuesday november 24th-
there are no major aspects today. the moon is in mystical, intuitive pisces at the start of the day and then moves into bold, action oriented aries just after 7am. use the fiery moon energies to get things done today!
wednesday november 25th-
mercury in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde chiron in aries at 3:19am, creating tension between the conscious mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer planetoid. old wounds and pain can arise in communication today bringing a need to find balance between ruthless honesty and penetrating conversation and compassion and care for self and others. as this aspect occurs in the early morning hours pay attention to your dreams upon waking for important messages from the Unconscious.
venus in scorpio quincunxes retrograde chiron in aries at 8:46am, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Wounded Healer planetoid. venus/chiron brings up all our old wounds and pain around self-worth, self-Love and self-value. old patterns we keep playing out in relationship that are toxic and keep stagnant or stuck are coming up to be faced right now. with both bodies in mars-ruled signs there is also deep activation of wounding around anger and rage. do you tend to stuff it and internalize it so it comes out as depression, illness or apathy? do you tend to act out in in aggressive, combative ways. healthy relationship to anger and rage is key right now (a great book recommendation is ‘the anatomy and evolution of anger’ and ‘emotional intimacy’ by robert masters). pay attention to what big wounds and pain are up for you right now. chiron teaches us that our wound is our gift and that the pain we fear to fully feel and move through is the very pain that will liberate us when we face it, feel it and move all the way through!
at 1:16pm mercury in scorpio quincunxes the mean north node in gemini, creating tension between the conscious mind and intellect and the node of destiny and evolution. jupiter and the sun both made a tense aspect to the north node this month and now it’s mercury’s turn! he rules the north node and is bringing messages and insights from the shadow realms about what holds us back from evolving and growing- personally and collectively. the north node in mercury reminds us that our growth and evolution comes when we open our minds, let go of hubris and self righteousness (south node in sagittarius) and come back to beginners mind. this is a time to be curious and open- versus coming from a power/control perspective where know it all and we are right. seek common ground in communication today!
venus in scorpio sesquiquadrates the mean north node in gemini at 8:54pm,, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the node of destiny and evolution. venus in scorpio is deep and intense. she can also be jealous, possessive, resentful and controlling. the north node in gemini asks that we lighten up, get some perspective, unclutch what we are holding onto so tightly and come back to beginner’s mind. in relationships and finances pay attention to what is going on!
thursday november 26th-
the sun in sagittarius trines retrograde chiron in aries at 1:52pm, aligning the conscious self and ego with the Wounded Healer planetoid. this aspect features in the new moon chart incoming in a few days time. healing is possible right now when we are willing to face and turn towards our pain. wounding around the masculine- our own masculine side but also with male figures in our lives- can be exposed with opportunities for healing present at the same time. with both bodies in fire signs healing around our creative fire, individually, self confidence and belief in self are incoming! live your authentic self and shine!
at 9:17pm mercury cojoins juno at 22’50 scorpio, linking the planet of communication and thinking with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. this brings focus to contracts, commitments, relationships and partnerships of all kinds. today mercury aligns with juno- and friday through sunday the pluto/eris square will trigger her. pay attention to what gets revealed this weekend- personally, in relationship, politically, collectively and more!
friday november 27th-
at 2:38am mercury in scorpio sextiles pluto in capricorn, linking the mind in the sign of the Underworld with the planet that rules the Underworld! with mercury in the sign of pluto AND linking to pluto there is a double dose of plutonian/scorpionic energy present. this is very deep astrology for penetrating conversations, insights and aha moments- as well as therapy, shadow work, research and investigation. anything that helps us get to the bottom of things is supported right now! be wiling to see and face the shadows- within and without!
venus in scorpio opposes retrograde uranus in taurus at 9:11am, creating an oppositional energy between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the planet of upheaval and chaos. there are some VERY BIG CHANGES happening in relationships, relationship dynamics, masculine/feminine balance and relationship paradigms right now. venus opposite uranus in the sign of venus is creating upheaval, growth and change in our relationships, values, attachments and more. with the scorpio/taurus axis highlighted we are challenged to really take a hard look at what we hold onto out of fear for safety and security and/or what we let go of too soon out of fear of deep intimacy and vulnerability. a whole new value system and paradigm of partnership that is more aligned with radical evolution rather than fear based survival can be birthed and/or deepened right now!!!
at 9:29am mercury in scorpio quincunxes retrograde eris in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. mercury/eris can be revealing but also chaos inducing in communication and thinking today! the mars-rulership of both signs can unearth some fire, aggression and combative energy- so navigate with care!
juno in scorpio sextiles pluto in capricorn at 11:18pm, aligning the Lord of the Underworld with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. with juno highly aspected there is a HUGE focus on partnership, marriage, romantic and business relationships and what we are committed to in our lives. pluto/juno is deep and passionate and can take connections to deeper waters. it’s also great for shadow work and diving deep to get in touch with hidden parts of self that we usually pretend are not there when we are first in connection with others. yet it’s not just pluto but also eris (on sunday) that is engaged with juno- so there can be some sudden unexpected energies incoming right now! determining what is karmic and what is destined in regards to intimate and business partnerships right now is key. pay attention!
saturday november 28th-
at 4:36pm neptune stations direct 18’09 pisces, making the planet of mysticism and illusion the most powerful planet in the sky. neptune is great for mysticism, spirituality, intuition, compassion, altruism and Unconditional Love. yet shadow neptune can also be present in the form of denial, delusion, avoidance of reality, spiritually by passing, playing the victim or the martyr, refusing to see the self and others clearly, mass or interpersonal deception, and turning to addictions (to drugs/alcohol but also to internet/work/food/sex/dating or anything else) as a means to avoid really confronting the emotions and karmic patterns we keep repeating in our lives. the veil between the worlds is thin when neptune stations and the best use of this energy is in meditation, reflection, introspection and inner journeys. it’s not a great time to make definitive decisions as it’s not quite clear which way is up and which way is down. if you can take a time out to go within and Source your answers from your Higher Self (and do your inner work to discern this voice from the spiritually by passing ego voice that often can sound quite similar!) you will make the most of this transit!
mercury in scorpio sextiles jupiter in capricorn at 6:51pm, linking the mind and intellect with the planet of expansion and abundance. this is great astrology for learning, teaching, traveling and opening our minds! seeing the Bigger Picture and taking our deep insights, intuitions and instincts out into the world to be used/applied in practical and tangible ways is key.
sunday november 29th-
at 12:20am the sun in sagittarius quincunxes retrograde uranus in taurus, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Rebel and Revolutionary. both sagittarius and uranus want freedom at any cost. in extreme ways this combination can create excess, impulsivity, reactivity and restlessness. if our desire for the new is simply a covert means to escape being responsible for the past- this can catch up with us eventually. finding balance between stability and change, responsibility and freedom- is important right now.
juno in scorpio quincunxes retrograde eris in aries at 4:19am, completing juno’s trigger of the pluto/eris square (11/27-11/29). eris the warrior feminine and activist- but also the Goddess of discord and chaos. she can unearth some big time anger, rage or shadow that is not being looked at or addressed right now. being willing to see where shadow is not being acknowledged and choosing to face it rather than wait till the Universe forces your hand is key.
at 4:14pm the sun in sagittarius semisquares pluto in capricorn- creating tension and friction between the expansive, optimistic self and the Lord of the Underworld who reveals the shadow. watch out for power/control dynamics today- and instead use pluto’s penetrating power to get to the root and Truth of matters. a balance of seeing what is possible and seeing what IS is required right now!
have a blessed week…
