Scorpio season is always a powerful time of year. This year the power is more concentrated, and therefore the punch is more effective. Using this power for good, for growth, and for positive outcomes, despite the grinding fatigue of the last 21 months, is our biggest challenge.
Instant karma is on display with New Moon in Scorpio November 4, accompanied by the Sun’s opposition to Uranus. Secrets are revealed, shocking disclosures are made, and opponents retreat to their respective corners to strategize less harmful outcomes. The conjunction of Mercury and Mars on November 10, both square Saturn and the Moon, illustrates a fine line between firm and forceful communications and downright bullying. Everybody knows the difference between choice and coercion, though powerful forces work hard to obscure that difference in the name of the “greater good.” Now is the time to ask: “For whose good?” Unless the answer is “everyone,” do not pass go, do not collect $200.
November 17-19 is the energetic epicenter of the month, bookended by Mars opposite the Moon and Uranus, and a Full Moon in Taurus, accompanied by a partial Lunar Eclipse and the trine of Venus to Uranus. The eye of the hurricane is always the safest spot! This is a gigantic shift, sure to trigger immediate and dramatic changes, both personally and collectively. The very Earth we all call home is high profile in this scenario. Reckless disregard for the consequences of rapacious consumerism yields shocking outcomes; and yet original and creative solutions are offered from unforeseen and previously overlooked sources.
Inspirational problem-solving and ingenious insights abound November 28-30, with the Sun conjunct Mercury, sextile Saturn and trine “Wounded Healer” Chiron, and Neptune trined by Mars and sextiled by Venus. November’s powerful punch knocks the scales from our eyes. Fresh hope is the best medicine!
