Planetary Illuminations for November 2016



Major influences

Jupiter is in Libra now, and you can read more about that here.  Although the dance between Uranus and Pluto, the two behemoths that rocked the world between 2008 and 2016, is waning, over the next six months or so Jupiter will reawaken the disruptive triggers that were beginning to fade as it squares Pluto later in November.  This will affect us most deeply if we have significant planets in Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn and we may find ourselves needing to make adjustments so that our inner world can be expanded and awakened to new ways of thinking and living.  

Neptune changes direction this month, meaning that its motion through the skies has slowed to a standstill in preparation for that turn and its influence is strong.  Neptune asks that we remember that we are spiritual beings in a human experience, and demands that we get off the treadmill long enough to honor the divine within and in every living creature.

November details

The month begins just after a Scorpio New Moon which focuses a laser beam of intensity on our desires and stimulates new passions.  This is the peak of the Scorpio season, and the rest of the month will bring lighter energies and more sweetness into our world. 

The first few days of November are generally favorable, with a creative burst on November 1st making this an excellent day for artists and mystics. Between the 2nd and the 4th the doors of communication swing wide open.  If you have important business conversations, or something personally important that needs to be discussed, this is the time to do it!

On the 4th and 5th something painful from the past may be exposed by someone close to us in order to generate healing, and we find that we react differently than ever before.  You may meet someone new that has an important and lasting effect on you, or find yourself stimulated in new ways by someone you already know.

On the 6th and 7th we have planetary assistant to deepen our understanding in a new way - there is emotional healing that comes from the wisdom of acceptance and detachment and a renewed sense of empowerment that springs from deep within.  

Three planets change signs from November 9th-12th

Mars enters Aquarius on November 9th and will remain in that sign until December 16th.  With Mars in Aquarius we will seek experiences that help to define us as individuals and gain new perspectives as Aquarius is the visionary and brings a flood of new ideas.  This is a disruptive force and coming so close to the US election, we will see quite a bit of the revolutionary behavior that is the hallmark of Aquarius.  But it's not all chaos - there is a brilliance in the wisdom of Mars in Aquarius that will help us break through barriers and blocks in our own personal lives so that we can make change where change is needed.  

Venus enters Capricorn on November 11th, eventually stabilizing our interpersonal relationships and financial markets, but first there is a day or two of intensity and potential personal drama on the 11th.  If there is any hidden resentment in your relationships it will come out then to hopefully be recognized and dealt with. 

Mercury enters Sagittarius on the 12th which will help us to broaden our perspective and gain greater understanding.  One downside to Mercury in Sagittarius is the tendency to overpromise and sometimes to find it difficult to see another viewpoint than our own. 

The period between November 12th and 15th offers some mild planetary dances that open the heart as well as energize us to take action where needed. 

The Taurus Full Moon November 14th seeks to stabilize and build a firm foundation from which we can achieve peace and serenity.  This is a time for grounding and finding comfort in the senses and the beauty of the natural world.  WIth Pallas involved in the Full Moon chart. we may need to look to the wisdom of our inner senses in order to achieve this outer balance.  A Chiron influence facilitates healing and letting go as the Inner Child is released and honored.  

The 18th is a dreamy and creative day which will not be ideal for business or any kind of pursuit which requires a sharp mind and organizational skills.  This tendency towards creativity extends to the 20th or so with a Venus aspect that is wonderful for socializing with friends or just enjoying the beauty that surrounds you. 

The Sun enters Sagittarius on November 21st and the remainder of the Scorpionic intensity that may have lingered will lift.  The Sagittarius solar period is ideal for long range planning and creating your vision for YOUR perfect life.  Don't wait until January 1!  Sagittarius inspires confidence and the desire to find expansion and greater happiness. 

This general positivity extends until November 22nd when you may find a period of greater contraction and potential conflict until around the 26th. Conflicts that arise now, whether they are within you or with others, are signals that something major in your life requires adjustment.  

The intensity of this process begins to fade on the 26th with an influence that facilitates inventiveness and aids in the resolution of any lingering issues. Relationships are highlighted between the 29th and 30th just in time for the Sagittarius New Moon on the 29th.

New Moons are times of new beginnings, and the Sag New Moon enhances the expansive awareness that we have already seen with the Sun now in Sagittarius.  This New Moon features the asteroid Juno (representing commitment and requirements of society) aligning with the Sun and Moon, integrating our duties and responsibilities to family and loved ones with the freedom loving journeys of Sagittarius.  I imagine we will see a number of engagements occur at this New Moon! 

Venus (relationships) is also featured prominently in the chart for this New Moon and any intentions that you create for this lunar cycle will want to include a focus on your interpersonal connections.  "What can I do to create more harmony in my relationships and still retain my individuality" is a good question to ask at this New Moon. Don't expect to achieve instant clarity, however, Neptune will blur both the questions and the answers at the New Moon and a few days beyond.  However, the information that you uncover will have merged with your conscious mind and will emerge when you are ready for it. 

I hope you find this information useful!  If you'd like to know more about how your own chart is affected by these planetary influences consider getting a personal consultation with me.

Meanwhile have a wonderful month!
