November 2nd Full Moon
This is a thoughtful Taurus Full Moon with Mercury close by the Sun. Saturn is closely square Pluto at this time, which is powerful. The structure of your life as you have come to depend on it might be changing even more radically than before. The Full Moon also makes a T-square to Mars, meaning that sudden action might also be emphasized. It is a good time to remember to breathe, and to "count to ten" before reacting.
November 9th Last Quarter Moon
This is traditionally the time when we look back over the events of the previous three weeks and attempt to understand their impact, and what lessons we can draw from them. The Moon is opposite Jupiter which makes for an optimistic assessment. On the other hand, Saturn and Pluto are drawing nearer to a perfect square, indicating what is perhaps quite a difficult passage. This is also a time when mental activity is very much in the forefront of our awareness, since Mercury remains within a few degrees of the Sun and in square to the Moon. It's a time when we are tempted to use logic to solve problems that are inappropriate to merely mental solutions, so that it is good to be aware of the value of intuition, which is also powerfully present right now.
November 16th New Moon
The Scorpio New Moon represents an important turning point when emotive magic is being invoked, since Neptune, and also Uranus, are powerfully configured. This Scorpio New Moon squares Neptune, just as Jupiter begins to conjoin it in a triple conjunction that perfects a month later in mid-December. Neptune in Aquarius is confused and not fully at home there, but it succeeds wonderfully in taking us out of our everyday affairs and tuning us into the numinous possibility. Uranus meanwhile is standing by in trine formation with this New Moon and symbolizes intuition that comes from deep inside and the sudden knowing that overcomes us as it changes everything in an instant.
November 24th First Quarter Moon
The Sun, newly entered into Sagittarius, and the Moon in Pisces conspire to make a few waves that lead us into increased awareness of our total situation. We are drawn to an understanding during this period of where we are at with outer world activity and inner world intuitive grasp. We are also engaged in seeing more clearly how important partners in our lives represent both a help and a hindrance in moving us along our chosen path. As Venus enters its brief trine with Uranus over these few days, relationship issues could come up rather suddenly. Everything that we have going for us now contributes to the sense we have been feeling lately that the times are changing, and irrevocably, and for good reason, as we prepare to abandon those parts of our individual lives – and also of our dysfunctional society – that just aren't working for us anymore.
