Aquarius Horoscope for November 2013

Posted on November 1, 2013 by Henry Seltzer of ASTROGRAPH.COM

This is a season of change for you Aquarius, as you take on the world around you in an entirely new way. You have been mulling over your approach to outer world performance since Mercury turned to retrograde motion in your sector of career and professional life, over the final ten days of October. You are finding that spiritual goals eclipse material ones in allowing you to arrive at an internal accord within yourself. Equally present are questions about finance and how to gather your resources to prepare for achievement in a way that does not violate your principles. Communication with others around you is one key to the puzzle, and is productive of a series of unexpected revelations over the course of this month that will help to see you through.

As the month begins, you are operating at peak efficiency and in the eye of public recognition, although with Mercury currently retrograde in your career sector you are also feeling a pull to the inside. You might feel even more poignantly the sense of exposure that comes from being out in the open where others can fully witness you, and long for your interior spaces that seem in some way safer and in which you are more at home. Actually, because the inner precedes and gives rise to the outer, the reverse might be true. One of the key revelations of this climactic end-of-year period is that you are in any case exposed by the process of life itself, and the living of it, and are no safer at home than on the street.

The New Moon and Solar Eclipse that takes place in the early days of November brings to your awareness and to the potential for direct action issues of inner versus outer and of isolation versus communication. With Pluto residing in your sector of dream imagination and inner work, in square with your ruler, Uranus, you are deeply drawn to transform at inner levels, and are finding that as you do, your outer performance changes in corresponding ways. It is also true that as an important archetype unto itself, Uranus is productive of extraordinary insights that could arise in conversation with others or in other forms of learning, and that shake you up in terms of how closely you align with consensus thinking and social tenets of received values.

In another way of looking at the outer planet configurations that peak at the time of the eclipse, you are dwelling more completely than you would care to admit in a sense of yourself that derives from outer achievement and recognition, and are becoming increasingly aware of the shortcomings of this method of arriving at self-worth. In this regard it is very interesting to note that Chiron, the planetary archetype of the Wounded Healer, is also aligned with Uranus and Pluto and occupying your sector of values and material security. It could be that over the course of this month you search out and see more clearly into patterns of behavior that you are ready to move beyond, and that have been engendered by ancient trauma, perhaps stemming from early childhood.

All these ideas are the subjects of your deep reflection, during nearly this whole month of the Mercury Retrograde that is taking place in such a prominent placement within your solar chart. Even though Mercury changes to direct motion on November 10th — representing yet another key moment of the entire retrograde period — it does not escape its retrograde shadow, representing the zodiacal degrees lost while it was moving backward, until November 27th. It does seam however that mental process does become more and more normalized as this secondary period continues to unfold.

While Mercury is straightening out throughout the latter half of the month, you are spending loads of time dwelling within yourself, focused on adjusting your perceptions of the world and indeed your very beliefs. This is a mystical time, and the ideas that are here engendered, concerning the collusion of Spirit and the material world, will last you well into the rest of this year and into the next, and perhaps for the remainder of your life.
