November 2019 Astrology Forecast:

Mercury retrograde continues until the 20th in emotionally intense Scorpio (started October 31). Relationship planet Venus moves into party animal Sagittarius November 1-25, making good opportunities for social and/or philosophical pursuits. At the same time, assertive Mars is in peacemaking Libra until the 18th. This adds to the social energy. Then he moves into one of his two favorite signs, Scorpio, where he will be for the rest of the year. Scorpio is great for emotional healing and projects that require intense focus. The USA Thanksgiving Day holiday on the 28th has pleasant planetary aspects in the morning, while under the conservative energy of a Capricorn moon.

Consider giving  GIFT CERTIFICATES this holiday season. They are easy for you and sacred for them. I can postal mail or email them to you or directly to them, and I can put their name, your name, and short sentiments on the certificate so they are personalized. I provide phone and Skype consultations all over the world.

November 1-2:

Venus moves into Sagittarius on Friday through November 25. It will be interesting to watch to see how this plays out. There is a lot of “private, mind your own business” energy in the planets right now, yet this combination is ready for a party. Odds are you will go through swings from social butterfly to don’t bother me moods. The moon is in Capricorn Friday and Saturday, so accomplish something tangible and practical. Change  your clocks before you go to bed on Saturday, fall back.

November 3-9:

An Aquarius moon on Sunday and Monday is excellent for meeting with friends and opening to new ideas for the greater good. Late Monday-early Tuesday, Mars is square Pluto, a rude planetary combination. Avoid forcing issues and give angry people a wide berth. The positive side is to take action to transform your life and let something go, be it stuff, people or attitudes and behaviors.

The rest of this week flows easily so you can get in a groove and just keep going. Friday and Saturday have pleasant social planetary combinations, and the moon will be in Aries which helps you get moving in a physical way.

November 10-16:

Monday the 11th marks the halfway point in the current Mercury retrograde cycle (Oct. 31-Nov. 20). The tone shifts from cleaning up the past to doing behind the scenes preparation for coming projects, possibly including upcoming holiday travel. An uncommon astronomical event will be Mercury transiting across the face of the sun. Although there is not a big astrological thing to say about this, there is help in communicating who you are to the world.

The Full Moon is on Tuesday November 12 at 5:34 AM PST (20 degrees Taurus-Scorpio). There is an abundance of “fixed” energy and the strongest elements are earth and water. “Fixed” signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius) are the survivors of the zodiac. They can endure difficult times and keep on pushing, but they also have life lessons in letting go. Water and earth elements can easily find their comfortable groove, but have to avoid allowing the groove turn into a rut. Where do you need to toughen up to persevere in your life, and what needs to be released? Get lucky: love & money Venus is moving into alignment with lucky and expansive Jupiter, exact on November 24th. This is a buy a lottery ticket combination. Remember that luck comes in many different ways; and in the case of a lottery ticket, one is enough if it is your lucky day.

Wednesday is a great day to gather with friends or associates to communicate your ideals and higher vision. Watch your dreams. The weekend is under the influence of a Cancer moon, great for tending to home and family issues.

November 17-28:

On Monday, warrior Mars moves into one of his two favorite signs, Scorpio, until January 3rd (the other favorite sign of Mars is Aries). This is excellent for working on your ambitions or doing detective-research work. Scorpio is really good at doing projects that it is intensely passionate about, but not so good at doing things it feels lukewarm about. Mercury ends his retrograde cycle on Wednesday the 20th. Allow extra time in traffic and keep a loose schedule in the days surrounding this change of direction Friday and Saturday are great for a party as the sun moves into enthusiastic Sagittarius and the moon is in social Libra. A lucky Venus-Jupiter conjunction occurs tomorrow morning (Sunday Nov. 24) so buy your Saturday lottery ticket.

November 24-30:

Sunday morning has two very different planetary pairings. Venus aligning with Jupiter is considered to be optimistic, expansive and lucky. Except for the potential for overindulgence, it is a happy combination. Then ambitious Mars opposes explosive Uranus to rattle the cage of your nice, neat life. This is an agent of change, and that can either come in a way that sets you free or blows up some aspect of your life. Stand in your power in the Taurus-Scorpio opposition, but avoid running control issues. If you have people in your life with control issues, give them a wide berth Sunday morning.

On Monday late afternoon Pacific time, Venus enters practical Capricorn until just before winter solstice. This is a better business combination than a personal one. You can work on your ambition and the core structure of your life in order to manifest your values, needs and desires-but you need to be willing to work and be practical.

The Sagittarius New Moon is on Tuesday, November 26 at 7:06 AM Pacific time. A sacred Sabian symbol to meditate on for the coming months is ” An old owl sits alone on the branch of a large tree.”  One suggested meaning is that it is time to pull back from the busy world and get a higher, spiritual perspective on what is going on in your life and the outer world. The energy of owl wisdom does not get sucked into the emotionally reactive drama of the transitory world as it takes a higher view. Sagittarius speaks  philosophical truth and does not worry about seeking approval. On another level, Sagittarius likes to have fun and is ready for a holiday party. An interesting, but somewhat abstract, event is Jupiter aligning with the Galactic Center of the Milky Way. This happens only once every twelve years. Perhaps it is time to align yourself with higher galactic principles of life to help you be in harmony with higher purpose in the coming year.

On Wednesday morning, Neptune ends his retrograde cycle since summer solstice. You may not notice this shift, but it would not be a surprise to hit the snooze button on your alarm clock. Do watch your dreams on the 27th. It is time to work on bringing a higher vision into your life. Thursday is a very active, talkative day. Have breakfast with a friend Thursday morning and rebel against your normal routines. The moon moves into Aquarius on Saturday afternoon, suggesting you do something out of the ordinary and/or meet new friends, groups or organizations.

December preview:

Jupiter exits his favorite sign of Sagittarius on the 2nd and enters less comfortable Capricorn for the coming year.  We are also moving into eclipse energy with a solar eclipse in Capricorn coming on December 25, and a lunar eclipse coming in January.  Check back for details.
