The Full Moon of Sunday, November 5th (), is the first major configuration of the month, and pulls together Venus and Mars in a last fling of their triple conjunction with the Sun that originated in the preceding New Moon from the last ten days of October, and also forms a T-square to Neptune, while Venus squares Neptune almost exactly. This Full Moon also trines and sextiles Uranus as Saturn nears an exact trine with Pluto. The energy for transformation and radical restructuring is quite strong at this time as indicated in the first few paragraphs of this overview.
The Last Quarter Moon of Sunday, November 12th (), traditionally represents a "crisis in consciousness" as we learn more about our situation, and discover the inherent limitations of our approach. Since the Moon conjuncts Saturn at this time, the feeling of limitation is intensified. We are tuning into our responsibilities and feeling our way forward into our own unique method of taking them on. As Mercury, moving backwards through Scorpio conjuncts Mars and trines Uranus, the potential for accidents and miscommunication increases. There may also be surprises, both at this time and at the very end of the week when Mercury changes direction.
Mercury stations direct on Friday, November 17th (), in the afternoon. At this time Mercury trines a stationing Uranus, so again the unexpected could become the norm, both for this day and the weekend following.
The New Moon of Monday, November 20th (), precedes the Thanksgiving holiday in a big conjunction with Jupiter, ruler of feasts. This is a potentially quite lucky and fortunate time, since Jupiter is known as the major benefic among the planetary energies. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, where it is heading on Thanksgiving Day, still conjuncted by the Sun. Venus has already entered into Sagittarius at the time of this New Moon, and four more planets including Jupiter will follow over the next few weeks. Thus, December will be a very Sagittarian month. This New Moon during the last few days of Scorpio, at 28 plus degrees of the sign, a powerful degree, reminds us of our own transformational qualities, and asks us to finally get our act together regarding the process of spiritual evolution in our lives and our intimate connection with others around us.
The First Quarter Moon of the following Monday, November 27th (), at nearly the end of the month, emphasizes once more the trickster energy of Uranus in Pisces. Strange intimations of intelligence from beyond the physical plane are still very much with us at this time, as they have been all month long. It's what we do with this powerful information that really counts.
