***All times are EST***
Monday November 6th-
At 12:20am Mercury in Scorpio quincunx the Mean North Node in Aries- creating tension between the Mind and Intellect and the Node of Destiny and Evolution. With both bodies in Mars-ruled signs and in tense aspect- communication can be a minefield today. Mercury triggers the Eris/North Node conjunction today- which can make for firey words, arguments, conflict, and aggression- but also fuels our desire to speak Truth, take a stand and not back down. Use the ego energies wisely today!
Venus in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn at 9:38am- aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the God of transformation and the Underworld. This lovely alignment between these two is great for depth of passion, romance, Love, intimacy and connection with others. Because they are both in Earth signs this can also be great for finances and work/career success! Being willing to go deep, face shadows and do the inner work required leads to powerful transformations and rebirth experiences in Love and/or money situations in our lives. With both bodies in Earth signs- honoring our embodied, physical experience is supported today.
At 11:00am 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 fire, aggression and combative energy- so navigate with care. Be direct and powerful in communication but not forceful and dominating for best results.
Pallas Athena in Libra opposes Retrograde Eris in Aries at 3:36pm- creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. Yesterday (Sunday November 4th) Pallas aligned with the Karmic South Node and today she opposes Eris- triggering the Eris/North Node conjunction. This can make for intensity in situations, relationships, and alliance where peace keeping and sweeping things under the carpet have gone on far too long. At best Eris calls us to take a stand for Truth and she is great for activism- but the shadow side is she is full of anger and rage and she reveals the Discord and Chaos that was going on beneath the surface. At best we can use this astrology to find the right balance between peace and action, relationship and boundaries.
Both Mercury and Pallas Athena trigger the Eris/North Node conjunction today. You can read my blog about it here- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/eris-conjunct-the-north-node-awaken-all-heart-warriors/
At 8:37pm Mercury in Scorpio trines Retrograde Neptune in Pisces- 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 emotions flow and focusing on communicating from the Higher Heart and a place of compassion and kindness is supported right now.
Tuesday November 7th-
The Solar Gate of Samhain is exact today at 11:35am EST. This is the last Solar Gate through the Wheel of the Year and is akin to the Dark or Balasmic Moon. This Dark of the Sun time is the Gate of Death and Final Descent- as the next Solar Gate at Winter Solstice or Yule will be the Gate of Rebirth of the Sun. This Solar Gateway is exceptionally potent and intense as the Solar/Lunar Samhain portal is at the end of an eclipse Cycle and the end of a Sun/Mars cycle as well. You can learn more about this upcoming 1/8 of the year in my Solar Gate Call here- https://divineharmony.com/solar-gate-calls/
Wednesday November 8th-
At 12:05am Pallas Athena in Libra quincunxes Retrograde Neptune in Pisces- creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the planet of Idealism and Illusion. Neptune in Pisces is intuitive, compassionate and idealistic but can also wear rose colored glasses, sacrifice the self and generally have a hard time seeing reality. Pallas in Libra is focused on fairness and balance but she can also overdo that to the point of always trying to find common ground even when none can be found and/or sweeping things under the carpet to keep the peace. It’s important to make sure we are not being deluded and deceived OR doing the deluding and deceiving right now. Sometimes the biggest lies we tell are the ones we say to ourselves. Keep your eyes wide open!
Venus moves out of Virgo and into Libra at 4:30am- shifting the Goddess of Love and Beauty into the sign she rules. Venus in Libra values relationship, partnership, marriage, commitment and collaboration. Her mantra is ‘WE not Me’- and she tends to think of herself in relationship to others (vs just thinking of herself alone and about her own needs). The gift of Venus in Libra is peace, beauty and harmony- but with her heading into very intense aspects it can be important that we acknowledge where things are not peaceful, not beautiful and not harmonious. Libra does not like to rock the boat- but in the coming weeks the boat is going to be rocked! Can you find your center? Can you be committed to the Truth rather than to surface projections of peace and harmony? The balance that is most important is the balance you have within. Work on cultivating it in deeper ways right now in the coming weeks!
At 4:13pm Venus in Libra quincunxes now Direct Saturn in Pisces- creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. Venus/Saturn can be heavy- showing us what is not working and making us deal with reality. Venus in Libra wants peace and harmony but she will also bury her head in the sand or wear rose colored glasses so as not to really look at where things are not peaceful and harmonious- so the reality checks incoming demand we take the rose colored glasses OFF. Venus/Saturn can show us what is solid and foundational and what is not- it is up to us to be willing to see the Truth clearly.
Mercury in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn at 7:17pm- 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 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- for best results/
At 10:01pm the Sun in Scorpio quincunxes Retrograde Chiron in Aries- creating tension between the Conscious Self and ego and the Wounded Healer. Old wounds and pain around our sense of self, identity, individuality and more can arise right now. Both bodies are in Mars ruled signs- which are primal, powerful and forceful. Chiron can be showing us where we overdo the yang/masculine energy in combative, selfish ways OR where we hold ourselves back from taking action, expressing, anger, setting boundaries and doing what we need to do in life. Tune into where you are being challenged to grow and get to it!
Thursday November 9th-
There are no major transits today.
Friday November 10th-
At 1:25am Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius- shifting the Conscious Mind and Intellect from Water to Fire, yin to yang, depths to heights. Mercury in Sagittarius loves to travel, teach, learn, explore and expand! The mind wants to grow beyond its boundaries and limits! This is a great time for travel. Just watch out for the shadow of Mercury in Sagittarius- thinking the grass is greener on the other side, thinking your beliefs are the right ones, and only being able to teach/speak but never being able to listen ;)
Ceres in Scorpio quincunxes the Mean North Node in Aries at 2:38am- creating tension between the Great Mother asteroid Goddess and the Node of Destiny and Evolution. Both Ceres and the North Node are in Mars-ruled signs and in tense aspect this can bring up intensity and shadow in home/family situations, with mothers and children, in the environment, around safety and security and more. The shadow is coming to Light and action needs to be taken. If we are ignoring things, sweeping things under the carpet and/or in denial- the astrology right now will force our hand!
Today through Sunday Ceres triggers 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/
At 10:07am Mercury in Sagittarius squares now Direct Saturn in Pisces- creating tension between the Mind and Intellect and the Lord of Karma. Mercury/Saturn can be heavy and depressing- bringing conversations or realizations that demand we see reality as it is. Both Sagittarius and Pisces like to see the glass as half full- but Saturn demands we see where it’s maybe not even full at all and it’s cracked and leaking. Serious talks today can bring us down to reality- but they can also serve us in seeing the Truth on its own terms.
Retrograde Jupiter in Taurus trines Juno in Virgo at 9:23pm- aligning the planet of Expansion and Abundance with the asteroid Goddess of Partnership and Marriage. Jupiter/Juno is lovely for relationships and alliances that are healthy, solid and growth oriented. In earth signs this bodes well for financial partnerships, work relationships and for health and well being. Opportunities and/or relationships incoming or expanding have potential to grow and be successful! Use the astrology wisely!
Saturday November 11th-
At 4:11pm Mars in Scorpio opposes Retrograde Uranus in Taurus- creating an oppositional energy between the Will, Warrior and Drive and the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. Mars/Uranus is a recipe for sudden change, upheaval, shift and perhaps some chaos and reversals we were not expecting. Uranus’ motto is ‘expect the unexpected’. We want to be aware of our will, anger, energy and drive and how we run them. If we react and are impulsive this can cost us. If we stuff them they can internalize and express as depression and illness. Uranus and Mars are in the signs of holding (Taurus) and letting go (Scorpio). They are also in the signs of money and debt. We need to be aware of where we are defaulting to one at the expense of the other. Changes are incoming! Stay open to change and facilitate your own death and rebirth processes for best results ;)
PLEASE NOTE- From today through the 18th we have Mars and the Sun opposite Uranus, a New Moon that is conjunct Mars and opposite Uranus and then the Sun/Mars conjunction culminating on the 18th. The Sun and Mars also quincunx Eris on the North Node, trine Neptune and sextile Pluto in the days ahead. The incoming territory is very potent, possibly intense and can be like a minefield we want to navigate with extra consciousness and awareness <3 Opportunities to SEE INTO AND THROUGH THE SHADOWS so we can get to the Truth are forthcoming!
Sunday November 12th-
At 2:03am Ceres in Scorpio quincunxes Retrograde Eris in Aries- creating tension between the Great Mother asteroid Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. From Friday early morning until early this morning Ceres has been triggering the Eris/North Node conjunction. Anything that has been ignored, denied or swept under the carpet in home/family situations, relationships with mothers or children, stuff from childhood- or in the world at large regarding the environment, health and safety, and home land security- can be in focus right now. Eris demands we take action- and with bodies in Mars ruled signs there can be anger, aggression, arguments and even violence being expressed. At best we can see into the shadow to get clear on the trauma, wounds and pain that needs to be addressed. At worse we will act out those wounds, pain and trauma in ways that perpetuate them. Being aware of the trigger happy territory at play helps us to get perspective and choose wisely the path we tread!
Have a blessed week….
