Astrology for November 2017

Our year is divided into quarters by the Spring and Fall Equinoxes and the Summer and Winter Solstices.  Fall is the time we gather, inventory, and share our resources.  Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius is the time to relate, eliminate, and transfigure. This November, Jupiter (ruler of Sagittarius) is in Scorpio (sign of life and death).  Jupiter (god of expanse) blesses us with the ability to breathe extra life into our desire nature.   Do we express, extinguish, or transform what it is that we crave?  With Saturn (lord of tradition) Trine Uranus (god of infinite possibilities), and both in Trine to the North Node of the Moon (dharma); we have a unique opportunity to promote a new idea, create a new direction, or take a giant step forward on our chosen path.

 The Full Moon arrives on the 4th at 1:23 AM EDT on the 12th degree of Scorpio/Taurus. With Jupiter (god of abundance) Conjunct the Sun and Opposite the Moon, we are sorting out what to embrace and what to let go of.  This brings to fruition the New Moon in Libra from two weeks ago.  This has been a time of innovation, disruption, and new relationship opportunities. Now we have a moment of consolidation and elimination, taking what is good and forgetting the rest.

 The New Moon is on 18th at 6:42 AM EST on the 26th degree of Scorpio. With the majority of planets in water (empathy) and fire (enthusiasm), this will be an extremely emotional month.  The Venus /Jupiter Conjunction (which is Trine Neptune in Pisces) is rising before the Sun. This is an extremely artistic, passionate, and creative combination.  Mercury in Sagittarius is in a Grand Trine with Uranus (innovation) and the North Node of the Moon (life path).  As a consequence, what we think about will tend to come about.  Mercury rules how we take in and process information; in addition to this Grand Trine he is also Sextile Mars (desire) and Square Neptune (imagination).  It will be very important that we harness our thoughts to our most pressing issues and avoid getting sidetracked by the interesting but ancillary concerns.

 The Sun enters Sagittarius on the 21st at 10:05 PM EST.  This next solar month will be a time of cautious measured steps based on what has already been accomplished.  With Mercury (messenger of the gods) coming to the Conjunction of Saturn (limited time) and the Trine to Uranus (lord of uniqueness), our mental skills can be polished to a new level of perception and integration.  With the Moon in Capricorn between Saturn and Pluto, we are reticent to innovate but the Sextile to Neptune in Pisces encourages us to keep looking up (accessing our higher guidance) and to utilize the resources we already have.
