In this climactic month, you are confronting issues head-on that you have been mulling over for many weeks now, and delving into the dark and hidden inner reaches of your psyche for answers to intimacy questions that relate to your connection to your own inner world, as well as important others in your life. As you infer what you can glean from the ramifications of self and other, you are exploring what relationship brings to you and additionally furthering your own self-study. Though old patterns still have currency, quite a bit of your basis for partnering and sharing is brand new, concocted out of recent departures from prior norms. You come to the middle of November poised for more definite activity in support of deep intention, although exactly where you are going still remains to be discovered. After the Scorpio New Moon, you are finding unusual avenues provided by trusted partners in your life that lead you onward into a quite different stage and adventure.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
The New Moon in Libra in mid-October brought realizations regarding your need for others, especially your important relationships. You’ve been relying on their support to get you through this period whether you like it or not. With Mars moving retrograde in your sign since the second week of September your usual self-assured demeanor may have been lacking. This is not in vain of course as it helps you acknowledge who your true supporters are. Your partnerships continue to be highlighted at the beginning of November with transiting Venus in Libra. Venus emphasizes the love and support that is available from the people who care about you.
Mercury stations direct in Libra on November 3rd which may help untangle your contracts and alliances; Mercury does take a couple of weeks to regain its lost zodiacal longitude. There might have been an issue with a certain partnership or a complicated agreement that has been dragging on. This could have played out in your career, and you may have felt a certain level of responsibility or burden towards someone or something. You can expect clarification in your agreements as Mercury starts regaining normalcy in the next few weeks.
Venus in Libra opposes Mars retrograde in Aries on November 8th and 9th, bringing potentially passionate exchanges, and intensifying your desires for connection. It may however be hard to see eye to eye with the people in your life. You may be coming across as overly pushy or domineering or you may experience this behavior from someone else in your life. There may be an intensity permeating the few days leading to Mars stationing direct in Aries on November 13th. Mars moving forward again in your sign is good news. If you have been feeling out of sorts or lacking vitality, the red planet stationing direct will start to carry the blood back to your extremities.
The New Moon in Scorpio in mid-November finds you planting seeds in the realm of intimacy. The soil you share with people who are close to you is freshly tilled, exposing truths and vulnerabilities that may have until now remained hidden. You could be feeling more emotional than usual. Stay gentle with yourself and with the people you love. Hidden fears or difficult topics that came up in the last few weeks are ready to be recycled into richer emotional soils. It’s a time that calls for transparency and maturity especially in your close alliances. Your bonds can deepen at this time or it may be time to break off the ones that have expired as you look for more authentic connections.
Mercury in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus for a second time on November 17th, an aspect that occurred recently once before, in mid-October. There may be something related to your finances or a business partner that comes up. The opportunity for clear insights is available especially if you manage to step out of your usual framework. Uranus in Taurus for the next several years is an opportunity to rethink the way you make money but also how you value yourself in relation to your work. Doing something that aligns more authentically with your values will continue to come up until you decide to follow a hunch that keeps tugging at you. Trust your gut feeling.
Venus enters Scorpio on November 21st while the Sun enters the Fire sign of Sagittarius shifting the narrative slightly to greener pastures. You may gain a lot more perspective with the Sun transiting in Sagittarius for the next month. There could be a new sense of potential or at least clarifications regarding your overall trajectory.
You may still be riddled with unease during the last week of November as if you are not able to grasp the immensity of what you are trying to accomplish. Something could feel daunting in the execution of a project you’ve been working on for months. There could be an element of risk associated with an opportunity which leaves you wondering if it’s a good idea to begin with. The Sun in Sagittarius trine Chiron in Aries on November 26th is an invitation to re-appropriate your courage by naming your insecurities. You may be overthinking something which in turn is creating a lot of pressure. It may be as simple as making a list of what is bothering you, and burning the list afterward. This simple ritual gesture could help you disengage from any thought loops that are undermining you.
The end of the month comes with a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, taking place on November 30th in the sign of Gemini. This corresponds to the communication sector of your chart. This eclipse may bring opportunities in the coming weeks that are associated with the media, social network, writing, and highlights your intellect. You may be bursting with ideas that are in high demand. Your cleverness is aroused, and the time may have come to put some of your brilliant insights to the test.
