monday november 9th-
ceres moves out of aquarius and into pisces at 6:38am- shifting the Great Mother asteroid Goddess from air to water, intellect to emotion, mind to heart. ceres in pisces is the ultimate Unconditionally Loving Mother. she sacrifices herself for others and her altruism, genuine care, depth of love and empathy are second to none. this is a time to think of the collective and to go beyond personal needs so that we are attuned to greater need. just watch out for the shadow of ceres in pisces- playing the victim, martyr or savior, giving until you have nothing more to give and confusing enabling and codependence with Unconditional Love. Unconditional Love requires love for self which expresses with clear and healthy boundaries <3
at 8:08am venus in libra opposes retrograde mars in aries, creating tension between the Divine Lovers and ultimate yin and yang placements. venus aspecting mars has been a signature of the mars retrograde- she squared mars just before he stationed retrograde on 9/9 and now she opposes him just before he station’s direct (she also tried him late september & quincunxed him mid october). relationships between women and men, yin and yang, feminine and masculine are in focus. venus in libra is deeply relational but shadow venus in libra can also get enmeshed, codependent and not leave situations that are unhealthy. mars in aries is dynamic and assertive but shadow mars in aries can be selfish, aggressive and combative. the interplay in relationships and the highlighting of polarity and duality is in focus right now. with mars in tense aspect to venus there may be a need to cut ties or end certain relationships that are no longer working. discerning baby from bathwater is key.
the sun in scorpio trines retrograde neptune in pisces at 9:11pm, 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.
tuesday november 10th-
at 1:55pm mercury moves out of libra and into scorpio, shifting the mind and intellect from air to water, thinking to feeling, conscious focus to the Unconscious. mercury in scorpio is DEEP. this is a penetrating placement where we want to get to the root of what is going on. this is great for therapy, shadow work, research and investigation. just watch out for intensity in thinking and emotions- indulging in jealousy, possessiveness and power/control dynamics is not recommended!
wednesday november 11th-
at 4:31pm venus in libra quincunxes retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Planet of romance, spirituality and transcendence. venus is the lower heart and neptune is the Higher Heart- put the too together and Unconditional Love, romance and idealism are strong! yet this is a tense aspect so we can also wear rose colored glasses and see what we want to see- or perhaps even be in denial of reality when it staring us in the face! being willing to see the Truth- not just the beauty and the ideal- is key.
thursday november 12th-
at 1:09am the sun in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde chiron in aries, bringing tension between the ego self and the Wounded Healer. the sun in scorpio wants depth and transformation- chiron in aries exposes wounding around masculine expression of anger, will, drive and ego. both bodies are in mars-ruled signs- so our relationship to mars is being highlighted right now. do we stuff our anger and refuse to take agency for our lives? or are we angry, aggressive, combative and selfish? too much mars or too little mars is out of balance. seeing where our wounding is and what we need to do to heal- and then getting to doing it- is key.
at 11:22am jupiter cojoins pallas athena at 22’50 capricorn and at 12:42pm pluto cojoins pallas at 22’51 capricorn, linking the jupiter/pluto conjunction happening later today with pallas athena the Goddess connect to politics, war, intelligence and wisdom. jupiter/pallas aligns the planet of expansion but also excess with the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess, while plut/pallas aligns the Lord of the Underworld and revealer of shadow with the Goddess. pallas is revealing the Bigger Picture at play- but there can also be magnification of patriarchal thought and ideas that are actually NOT the answers. with pluto involved there can be some massive power/control dynamics playing out personally, politically and collectively with a need to really seeing behind the veil to assess clearly the shadow. more of the old paradigm is NOT going to help us or save us. think outside the box (thank Goddess eris is part of the planetary lineup right now). this is the 3rd and final trigger of jupiter and pluto to pallas – a conversation unfolding all year is about to come to revelation and completion! (think back to 3/28-3/31 when this all started and 7/2-7/3 for the midpoint).
jupiter cojoins pluto at 22’51 capricorn for the 3rd and final time at 1:39pm. this has been one of the big transits of 2020- along with saturn conjunct pluto on 1/12, pluto square eris 2020-2021 and jupiter conjunct saturn in aquarius coming soon on winter solstice. jupiter is a trigger planet that comes along and activates planetary transits and takes them up a few notches. from today through 11/17 jupiter will trigger the pluto/eris square- arguably THE MOST IMPORTANT TRANSIT OF 2020- for the 3rd and final time. not many astrologers are talking about eris as she is a new body discovered in 2005. but historically new bodies discovered always tied into what was unfolding in the collective and her role as distruptor is clearly seen in what is happening on the planet right now. at best jupiter brings Light (he is the Greater Benefic/one of the Great Lights) to the shadow (pluto). he brings massive opportunity for transformation, evolution and rebirth after death/endings/dark nights of the Soul. but he can also magnify the shadow of pluto- ruthless desire for power & control, back door/behind the scenes domination, subversive manipulation and even black magic. pluto is massively intense and extreme and jupiter is adding more fuel to the already hot and heavy saturn/pluto and pluto/eris fire. this is amazing for inner work, shadow work, therapy, shamanic journeys and diving into the depths of our being. yet what is down there can be intense, fear inducing and not a walk in the park. the whole world is going through a dark night of the Soul right now- as people are being forced to stay at home, with less distractions, forced to feel their emotions and feel the fear, anxiety and uncertainty that the whole planet is in the midst of. it’s a lot. and then jupiter/pluto comes along and takes things to even deeper levels. your greatest tool in your toolbox right now will be your ability to be with the dark, work with emotions, relate to your fear (rather than deny/disassociate or enmesh/fuse) and really take the time to do DEEP INNER WORK. pay attention to what is going on right now in your life, relationships and in the world around you. things are heating up and we want to have EYES WIDE OPEN. (the Truth can set you free but first it might piss you off). this 3rd and final jupiter/pluto conjunction occurs within 4 minutes of the saturn/pluto conjunction so consider it a huge activation of that new 38 year cycle that was seeded in january.

both pluto and jupiter sesquiquadrate vesta in virgo at 4:53pm and 7:38pm respectively, bringing tension between the powerhouse planetary duo and the Priestess asteroid Goddess of focus and devotion. vesta in virgo tends to the details and wants to serve, see clearly and discern. jupiter/pluto are bringing Light to the shadow and showing us what/who is painting or altering the picture (metaphorically speaking). this is great for being a detective and getting to the bottom of things but it can also get obsessive and destructive. balance is key.
friday november 13th-
happy friday the 13th!!! i love friday the 13th. western culture has a stigma about it being evil and unlucky, but if you look deep into the roots of both friday and the number 13 you will find some interesting mysteries hidden there. friday is vendredi in french- named after the goddess Venus. yes, friday is venus’ day! 13 is also deeply connected to the Goddess- it is one of her sacred numbers, there are 13 lunar cycles each year, and the transiting moon moves 13 degrees a day and the progressed moon moves 13 degrees each year. let’s not forget the maligned 13th sign ophiuchus which is associated with kundalini, healing and magic (all Dark Goddess areas of expertise- read my article on ophiuchus here for more info- https://divineharmony.com/writings/my-thoughts-on-ophiuchus-the-13th-sign/) and the debased 13th apostle- Mary Magdalene- and maybe you start to see the funny distorted picture…? we call a day that is most connected to the Goddess evil- just as we have demonized, repressed and controlled the empowered Divine Feminine for millennia. anyone else out there ready to change the tradition??? this is a particularly potent friday the 13th as it is the last full day of the dark moon during the dark fo the sun (Samhain season- solar samhain gateway was on 11/6). so give yourself time today to go deep- during the dark moon and dark sun- to face you fears and shadows, to own your power and your passion, and to honor the dark part of the solar and lunar cycles. dark is not evil- dark is one half of of the yin and yang and is essential for wholeness, healing and transformation. blessed be!
at 12:50am the sun in scorpio quincunxes the mean north node in gemini, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the node of destiny and evolution. the sun is shining Light on the shadow and power/control dynamics that hold us back from evolution, open mindedness and open-minded communication. the sun in scorpio is always digging and looking for shadow- while the north node in gemini prefers to be more light. yet this is the north node so our evolution is tied up with lightening up a bit and opening our minds. coming to a place of curiosity and open mindedness is key. steer clear of dogma and thinking you know everything. be open to seeing new truths- about yourself, others and the world around you!
retrograde neptune in pisces trines juno in scorpio at 8:42am, aligning the planet of idealism romance and mysticism with the asteroid Goddess of partnership and marriage. neptune/juno can elevate our hearts to a space of Higher Love. this is great for mystical connections with others- romantic and otherwise- both existing ones or new ones that are very past life coming in. yet we need to be aware that we are very idealistic right now and can be tuned into the Higher levels of things and what is possible without taking into account the lower level that is manifesting as what IS. the best use of this aspect is to come from the Higher Heart in all interactions- with self and other- without grasping or being attached from the ego.
at 9:53am mercury in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension between the mind and intellect who is in the Underworld and the planet of idealism, Love and mysticism but also fantasy, illusion and deception. it’s easy to see/say what we want to see or others want to hear. watch out for being deceptive and being deceived. compassion and forgiveness must be balanced with seeing reality and seeing the shadow.
retrograde uranus in taurus trines vesta in virgo at 12:48pm, linking the Higher Mind and Great Awakener with the Priestess asteroid Goddess. uranus/vesta is committed to seeing the Truth and bringing Light to what is hidden in thee shadows. in work situations, health matters, finances and more- being willing to see the Truth at any cost is key. ‘the Truth will set you free- but first it might piss you off’
at 4:36pm mars stations direct at 15’13 aries, completing mars Underworld journey that began 9/9 (due to front end and back end shadows the period of mars retrograde really runs from 7/25 through 1/2/21). this has been one intense mars retrograde! mars is the will, warrior and drive and he is in the sign he rules being very strongly placed. mars in aries is fiery, dynamic, assertive and passionate! he can also be overly yang and in shadowy ways can express as aggression or passive-aggression, anger/rage, dominance and violence. mars triggered the pluto/eris square twice already with one more occurring from 12/22-23- bringing a huge trigger to one of the biggest transits of 2020. pluto and eris have been exposing the shadow and power dynamics behind the scenes. with mars stationary the War God and planet of action but also aggression is dominant! be consciou and careful with your actions and ego energies today!
saturday november 14th-
at 5:30am venus in libra trines the mean north node in gemini, linking the Goddess of Love and Beauty with the node of destiny and evolution. destined and fated events around relationships, partnerships, beauty, balance and harmony are in focus. with both bodies in air signs the focus is on communication, collaboration and seeing the Truth and value on both sides of situations so that you can find common ground. pay attention to relationships and find balance between self and other today <3
the sun in scorpio sextiles pluto in capricorn at 11:48am, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of Transformation and Evolution. the sun is in pluto’s sign so there is a double down energy right now of pluto/scorpio potency- which helps us get deep, stay focused and do the deep inner and outer work of transformation. this is a great day for getting focus and moving mountains! rather than give away your power or lord your power over others- step out of the victim/tyrant dynamic and relate to your power from a solid place within.
at 7:57pm the sun in scorpio sextiles jupiter in capricorn, linking the conscious self and ego with the planet of expansion, positivity and growth. on 11/12 we had the 3rd and final jupiter/pluto conjunction and the sun has triggered both today. sun/jupiter is amazing for opening up our minds, learning new things, traveling, teaching and writing. with the sun in pluto’s sign linking with jupiter conjunct pluto we have great access to the depths, the shadows and the mysteries. dive deep via therapy, shadow work, dream work, inner work and self reflection. we can access deep well springs of our power today. use your power WISELY!
the new moon at 23’18 scorpio is exact at 9:07pm- commencing a new lunar cycle focused on the depths, the mysteries and the shadows. a scorpio new moon is a great time to DIVE DEEP and bring hidden things to Light. this new moon is sextile jupiter conjunct pluto (!!!) amplifying the transformational capacity of this lunation. jupiter/pluto is great for shadow work, therapy and doing the deep work of evolution, transformation and reformation. yet it can also expose power dynamics and things hidden behind the scenes- so keep your eyes wide open! the new moon also sextiles saturn and trines pluto making some amazing lovely aspects. the one main tense aspect is a quincunx to eris the Goddess of Discord and Chaos- bringing in some sudden and unexpected energy that can be ungrounding and destabilizing but also revealing and liberating if we use the info or realizations that come to Light wisely. this is lunar samhain- the lunar gateway that takes us into the deepest, darkest part of the year. to listen to the LUNAR GATE CALL for Lunar Samhain you can sign up to access gate calls here- https://divineharmony.com/checkout/?rid=pws3gt the LUNAR INSIGHT and LUNAR HOROSCOPES will be up by the new moon or a few days before as well <3
sunday november 15th-
at 1:35am mercury in scorpio quincunxes retrograde chiron in aries, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Wounded Healer planetoid. both bodies are in mars-ruled signs which can make for intense, conflict oriented or aggressive communication. mercury in scorpio wants to get to the Truth but the chiron wounding around right use of anger and will can exacerbate tendencies to either stuff anger and be passive aggressive or overreact in anger and be dominating and emotionally violent. the potential for healing is possible if we bring a lot of consciousness to our words, thoughts and intentions right now. pay attention to what is coming up in communication, thinking and information today.
the sun in scorpio quincunxes retrograde eris in aries at 7:16am, 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.
at 11:43am venus in libra squares pluto in capricorn, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. venus/pluto can be deeply passionate, sexual, intense and potent! but the tense nature of the square can also bring up all kinds of shadow, power/control dynamics, posesssiveness, jealousy and toxic elements in relationships or in regards to finances. ever since venus moved into libra she has been getting hit by a lot of tense transits- to chiron, uranus, jupiter, pluto, saturn, neptune and eris. the surface facade is definitely being tested. if relationships are solid and grounded they will show their strength right now. that which is based on the surface and chasing that which is ephemeral will also show it’s truth right now. if we tend to over focus on others at the expense of ourselves- this astrology is asking for a course correct! balance between self and other is key!
pallas athena in capricorn squares retrograde eris in aries at 4:10pm- creating tension between the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. big things are going on politically and behind the scenes. pallas is magnifying what needs to be seen and dealt with. eris is pulling back the curtain to reveal the shadow. we have pallas triggering the pluto/eris square this week (11/12-11/15) right while jupiter is also in the midst of triggering pluto/pallas (11/12). big astro unfolding right now politically, environmentally and more! find your center in the storm- find your grounding in the midst of uncertainty.
at 6:14pm mercury in scorpio sesquiqudrates the mean north node in gemini, creating tension between the conscious mind and intellect who wants to dive deep and KNOW THE TRUH and the north node in an air sign that wants to keep things light and stay curious and open. pay attention to conversations, information and revelations incoming. they can be illuminating.
venus in libra squares jupiter in capricorn at 9:33pm, creating tension between the two Benefic planets. these two together can be great for abundance, socializing and having fun. yet jupiter just conjoined pluto on 11/12 and venus squares both today so there’s more of a shadow being brought to Light energy present right now. watch out for excess and avoidance! if you have been sweeping things under the carpet they are likely to be coming up and out today/this week/this month/this year!!!! use the astrology to face the shadow, name what is not working, do the work to transform or restore OR do the work to fully let go of that which no longer serves- in relationships, in your personal life, in the world around you and more!
have a blessed week…
