November Horoscope

After so much rigorous transformation and unrelenting upheaval in the last few months, November may feel like a balm on your soul.

The August eclipses (yes we're still talking about those) sent us through a paradigm-shifting wormhole. Aquarius and Leo-dominant folks may still be picking up the pieces. 

For weeks now, it feels as if the astrology has been saying the same thing. Surrender to your suffering. Brace yourself for breakthrough. Create space to heal.

Now we've reached a place to catch our breath. We've unearthed the sticky material we need to resolve. We know what we have to do. The journey forward may not be easy, but at least we've chosen a path.

Yesterday, Venus moved into Scorpio, joining the Sun and Jupiter. From now through Nov. 21, Scorpio dominant folks will be the stars of the Zodiac. Their superpower is resilience. We could all take a cue from them.

The rest of us could be more contemplative and even more spiritually satisfied in whatever area that Scorpio stellium lands in your chart.

This week, we get two powerful shots of empowerment, first with Thursday's Sun sextile Pluto and again with Saturday's Saturn trine Uranus. 

For the first time in months, we may actually feel like we can handle whatever crises have been thrown our way. We may sense that somehow, everything is going to work out. This is especially apparent around the Nov. 11 Saturn trine Uranus.

The week of Nov. 13, we'll have several more opportunities to recover a sense of well-being. Romance and compassion could color our experience for a few days. 

Mercury in Sagittarius enters its Retrograde Shadow on Nov. 14, which means communications of all kinds could begin to slow down in preparation for Mercury Stationing Retrograde on Dec. 3 at 29° Sagittarius.

Which leads us to the potent 26° Scorpio New Moon onNov. 18. 

With the Moon's rulers Pluto and Mars square each other, this lunation is ripe for confrontation and intensity. Be alert for power struggles. When in doubt at this New Moon, channel the Mars sextile Mercury into speaking your truth.

By Nov. 21, we let more light in as the Sun moves into happy-go-lucky Sagittarius, Venus sextiles Pluto and Neptune stations Direct a day later. 

We all may feel more forgiving and grateful on Thanksgiving this year.
