the only major aspect today is exact at 12:46pm when recently turned direct mercury in scorpio trines retrograde (but soon to station direct) neptune in pisces, echoing the aspect these two made twice already on 10/1 and 11/9. mercury/neptune is inspirational, creative, intuitive, spiritual and compassionate. aligning our minds with our Higher Hearts is recommended right now! pay attention to dreams and psychic impressions- as important information/messages can come in from the most unlikeliest of places! with neptune stationing the veil between the worlds is thin this week. on saturday mercury will parallel neptune- so a super aspect between these two is in effect all week long. take time to listen to your Inner Voice and attend to your emotions. the waters of the Unconscious are trying to whisper messages to us…

the only major aspect today is exact at 8:39am when the sun in scorpio trines recently turned retrograde jupiter in cancer, aligning the conscious self and ego with the planet of expansion, abundance and opportunity. this is a great day to see the possibilities and tune into other ways of doing things that could be expansive and positive. jupiter is retrograde so focusing on the inner levels as they relate to emotions, home/family situations and our connections or attachments to the past is key.
wednesday november 13th-
the first aspect of the day is exact at 6:55am when venus in capricorn sextiles the north node in scorpio, harmoniously aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the evolutionary north node. important turning points or doors opening when it comes to relationships, finances and self-worth can arise today. seeing where we need to grow in Love and money situations is key, and then taking those first steps so that action follows intention is necessary!
the other celestial shift of the day is exact at 10:42am when neptune stations direct at 2’34 pisces, making the planet of mysticism, spirituality, delusion and confusion the most powerful planet in the sky! neptune rules the Unconscious and tends to blur boundaries and life the veil between the worlds. with neptune stationary all of that is heightened and we can feel very otherworldly and/or spacey in the days surrounding neptune’s station. pay attention to all dreams, intuitions, insights and psychic impressions you have right now. and do something to stay grounded as this energy can have you living in a fantasy world that is divorced from reality. learning how to bridge the two is key for mastery.
thursday november 14th-
the first aspect of the day is potent as venus in capricorn squares retrograde uranus in aries, exact at 5:13pm. this commences venus’ trigger of the uranus/pluto square that unfolds in the next 24 hours. venus in capricorn wants structure, stability, order and security- while uranus in aries wants change, rebellion and revolution! two forces pushing against each other are bound to create some friction. in Love and money situations the impulse to grow and evolve is at odds with the impulse to stay safe, secure and keep on doing the same old thing. change is going to happen whether we want it or not! may as well move with the energy of change and see where it takes us ;)
the last aspect of the day is exact at 7:59pm when venus in capricorn sextiles retrograde chiron in pisces (who is set to go direct in a few days), harmoniously aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the wounded healer. venus is currently in the midst of MAJOR activation by uranus and pluto- and she will go retrograde towards the end of december as well symbolizing the descent of the Goddess into the Underworld (read more about persephone and innana online for more info). venus/chiron brings a healing energy into relationships and financial situations- helping us to see what needs to change and hopefully getting us to make peace with the past so we can release it. venus/chiron can also be about healing when it comes to one’s own self-worth. when we truly Love ourselves and take care of our own needs and boundaries- we will make healthy decisions in relationships and financial situations that reflect this self-Love. this can be a part of the venus journey for each of us- so tune into what is up for you and then address it and know that it won’t be going away anytime soon- so may as well deal with it now!
friday november 15th-
the first aspect of the day is exact at 1:33pm when venus cojoins pluto in capricorn, aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the lord of the Underworld! when venus goes retrograde in later december she symbolizes the Goddess going into the underworld- and when venus aligns with pluto it symbolizes the same. there are dark, under worldly forces playing out in relationships and finances right now! this can be a deep, passionate time of getting in touch with our own Soul’s needs and desires. or it can be a time of destruction, conflict and power struggles in Love and money situations. either way the shadow is up to be addressed- and you cannot ignore it! the only way out is through- so move through the breakdowns so you get to the breakthroughs!
the only other aspect today is exact at 9:00pm when the sun in scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde uranus in aries, commencing the sun’s trigger of the uranus/pluto square. the 3 day period happening right now (thursday, friday and saturday) is powerful. we have both venus and the sun triggering the breakdown/breakthrough duo- bringing up all manner of issues, conflicts, endings and new beginnings that need to be addressed. sun/uranus is sudden, electric and changeable- so stay open to seeing things you could not see before. they may even be shocking! knowing when to fold and knowing when to fight is key. focus your intensity on digging up the shadow and exposing secrets so that Truth can be set free!
saturday november 16th-
the first aspect of the day is exact at 4:11pm when the sun in scorpio semisquares pluto in capricorn, completing the sun’s trigger of the uranus/pluto square that began last night. the sun is currently in pluto’s sign- so these two have an affinity despite the fact that they are making an intense aspect. the friction generated could help facilitate transformation and change- or it could devolve into power struggles, violence and destruction. it’s up to us how we use this energy- follow your intentions with action to reap what you want to sow!
at 7:59pm mercury in scorpio semisextiles ceres in libra, harmoniously aligning the conscious mind and intellect with the asteroid Goddess of mothering, nurturing and care taking. important conversations, communications and information coming to Light about home/family situations, Mother Earth, and our needs for safety and security can arise today! paying attention to both the shadow and the Light of situations is key in order to make a balanced decision on how to move forward.
the day ends with mercury in scorpio parallel to neptune in pisces, exact at 9:02pm. on monday mercury trined neptune for the third and final time in the last 6 weeks- and with mercury aspecting neptune by declination today we have had a super aspect between these two that has lasted all week. to add to this neptune stationed direct on wednesday- making the veil between the worlds thin and activating subconscious/Unconscious realms in potent ways. today is a great day to tune into intuition, attend to emotions and listen to the bodies of water (inner and outer) to hear the messages they are trying to share.
sunday november 17th-
the only celestial occurrence today is exact at 7:16am when the full moon in taurus is exact, marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in. with the sun in scorpio and the moon in taurus, this full moon can illuminate the areas of life where we are holding on and where we need to let go. the full moon tends to bring to Light, climax or crisis anything that we are not addressing in this lunar cycle. remember this lunar cycle began with the POWERFUL and POTENT new moon in scorpio/lunar samhain- so this midpoint can be a check point to see if the seeds we planted and intentions we set are really, truly being acted upon. if we are headed in the right direction this full moon can illuminate the way ahead. if we are headed in the wrong direction or not moving at all (in the stubborn taurus way) then this full moon can activate us and re-route us. either way- deep stuff can be up today! for more info on this lunation check the lunar insight posted a few days before the full moon is exact. also check your weekly horoscopes to see where it falls in your chart!
