November begins with Mercury retrograde in deep thinking Scorpio and Venus entering adventurous Sagittarius. Venus in Sagittarius keeps reminding us that the way we look at life has a lot to do with our attitude. Venus, the part of life that is about what we enjoy and in Sag she will stir up the adventurer within. She will be in Sagittarius until November 25th, plenty of time to dream up new adventures, places to go, risks to take, and new knowledge to acquire.
The full moon in Taurus on the 12th is at 19 degrees is with Vesta, the asteroid that is connected to keeping the flame of secret wisdom burning. With the Sun in Scorpio, always keen to uncover secrets and hidden knowledge this will be a time of inner exploration that will bring tools to transform. In addition the Sun and Moon are on the planetary nodes of Mercury and Mars adding fuel to examine core values and communicate what change you feel is needed in relationships. Venus is connected with Neptune during the full moon. She knows deep within that love does not control, manipulate or dominate another. Instead Neptune with Venus is seeking a divine love, with compassion, understanding, and acceptance. Unfortunately sometimes the vision of the ideal relationship and the reality of what your partner are capable of burst the bubble of expectations. Yet this time frame will be one to speak out of what you desire and your expectations from the other as well as your hopes for what it can be. The conversations can be had with your significant other, a family member, close friends, or even coworkers.
Mars moves into Scorpio on the 19th. Mars in Scorpio is able to apply its determination and effort in a direct no nonsense manner. If you are in need of more assertiveness tap into the strength of Mars and you will be surprised at your ability to be more direct without any desire to apologize. Mars in Scorpio is also a time that can help you eliminate clutter, clothes that no longer look good on you, extra stuff you have accumulated and no longer use, and objects that are holding energy of negative past experiences.
Mercury moves direct on Wednesday (Mercury’s Day) the 20th. From the retrograde of October 31st until mid-December information and knowledge that you have learned continues to be processed. Dreams and intuition play a role in discovering how to manifest a life in the flow where there is less struggle to exist. Survival is a key lesson in Scorpio territory and Mercury unpacked its bag for an extended stay to learn new ways of using the power of deep thought to manifest an easier way to live. Thrive not survive is the end goal when Mercury moves direct.
Friday the 22nd of November the Sun enters Sagittarius and with the moon in Libra it kicks of a weekend that will offer plenty of opportunities to socialize and have fun. The weekend will include Venus moving to conjoin Jupiter in Sagittarius, over doing is easy, over spending, over eating, even over exertion exercising. You get the picture; it is about enjoying life to the fullest. Eat drink and be merry and the live for today vibe is going strong. If you journal this is a great time to think BIG. Especially in the areas of life for what you want to learn, where you want to travel, and in general, what you envision of your life’s journey.
Venus moves into earth loving Capricorn on the 25th, emphasizing respect in relationships. Be mindful of your commitments to those around you, showing up on time, respecting their wishes and obligations will go a long way in receiving deep appreciation. The new moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday the 26th is at 4 degrees and is with Pallas Athene, symbolizing strength, independence and the ability to go it alone whether you have the support of others or not. In fact blazing ones trail is easier under this signature, as going you own way w/o being weighed down with other people’s fears or concerns will allow you to make great strides.
This new moon is a time to send your intentions out to the universe with a bit of caution with whom you are sharing your desires with. Surround yourself with people that you know will be on your side without judgement or negativity. You may have dear friends that seem to attract more and more of the problems they have constant complaints about. Love them, but shield your big ideas from their pessimistic world view.
The new moon is trine to Chiron and the experiences you have had in the past that didn’t work out bring you the wisdom to know how to do things differently for success.
Neptune stations direct the day after the new moon. When Neptune is stationed it is a time to tap into other dimensions. The other dimensions are closer now, more easily accessible. Your spirit guides, helpers and easier to understand whether directly from visions, after deep meditations, or from dreams or symbols that present themselves during the next few days.
Thursday the 28th is a holiday in the states, Thanksgiving Day. Venus and the moon are making harmonious aspects to Uranus and each other. With the moon and Venus being in Capricorn, measured responses to opposing views and beliefs keep the peace during the feast.

November Astrology 2018
Quick read for the main message this month? There are positive vibes for resolving complicated situations as Venus moves direct in harmony with Mars.
November astrology dances around several significant astrological events. There are a couple of big cosmic announcements; Jupiter leaves Scorpio and moves into Sagittarius, Mercury will go retrograde, Venus moves direct, Uranus dip back into Aries, Neptune moves direct and the moons nodes changing signs, along with the all-important new moon and full moon.
The nodes of the moon have been spending the last 18 months in Leo/Aquarius axis, giving us the push to follow our heart, open creativity and now they will spend the next 18 months in the Cancer/Capricorn axis with the north node in Cancer ruled by the ever changing moon, it can be a roller coaster ride in determining what exactly it is that brings us inner peace, tranquility, and safety. There can be several sudden snaps that catapult you into thinking what makes you feel safe and secure and early November can give you the clue of what you will be bringing or adjusting into your life in the next year and a half. Because Cancer is ruled by the moon, and the moon moves through the 12 signs every month, this is the reason for the uncertainty. Yet it is about capturing the essence and positive qualities of each of the signs in respect to what they offer for emotional fulfillment. Take a look at your personal chart and notice what house the sign Cancer falls in your chart and the domain of that area of life will take greater significance.
November 6th Uranus, which made its debut into Taurus May 15th, dips back into Aries until March 6th 2019 when it is firmly back into Taurus for the next 7 years. (Check out more about Uranus in Taurus here.) When these outer planets shift into a new sign, but retrograde back into the previous sign for a short period, we get a taste of what to expect for the future, and a chance to recap and complete what was not finished or adapted to during the previous 7 years when Uranus was in Aries. For the next four months, while Uranus revisits Aries, it is a reminder to embrace who you are with love for your uniqueness and individuality. Uranus in Aries paved the way for self-expression and acceptance for being different, following one’s own path even if it is deviates from cultural norms. Evidence of this is seen in the acceptance of autistic adults being hired and honored for their gifts in the work place whereas in the past they would not even been giving a chance. Other examples can be found in the transgender community, the disabled and Paralympics and more.
The Scorpio new moon is on the 7th of November at 11:02am EST, set your intentions according to Scorpio elements and the house that the new moon falls in your chart. The new moon in Scorpio has Venus in Libra opposite Uranus in Taurus and all the planets contained between those 2 planets. Imagine a volley ball net, with one person holding up one pole of the net, and the other holding up the other and the net in a nice straight line, but all of the players are on one side and no one on the other. That is what it looks like with the planets and what it means is that circumstances can be lopsided. You can get a lot accomplished in half the day, then the other half nothing seems to happen. Mars rules the new moon, along with Pluto the modern ruler. These 2 planets want action and passion. Cultivating what you feel passionate about is the key to successful endeavors this month. Mars in Aquarius is trine Venus in Libra, if you have had differences with partners, now is a time to find common ground and move forward.
Jupiter moves back into its home territory of Sagittarius on November 8th (the first time back home since late 2006) and will stay there until December 2nd 2019. Jupiter moving into Sagittarius can lighten the load if you have felt burdened with responsibilities or obligations. It isn’t a complete free pass from our duties, as Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn, however it is being able to see possibilities that are around the corner in your future. Jupiter in Sagittarius shouts that the truth will set you free. Seeking your truth and living according to it will feel so good. Wherever Jupiter is traveling through your chart, whatever that house represents Jupiter brings an opportunity and protection to have more.
Mars moves into watery Pisces on the 15th switching our motivation planet towards introspection, self-less service and giving an extra push to put effort into meditation, yoga, and creative expressions. Friday the 16th is a very interesting day with Venus and Mercury switching gears. Venus gets off the retrograde track and moves direct while Mercury decides to retrace its steps at 13 degrees of Sagittarius retrograding back into Scorpio before moving direct at 27 degrees.
Venus is quite happy the month of November retrograde or direct as she is in the sign she rules of Libra for the whole month. Lovely times can be had with Venus in Libra when you plan for easy going parties, social events, art festivals, music and the like. Mercury on the other hand is quite mischievous as not only is he out of bounds, meaning jumped the fence and decides to play by his own rules, he moves retrograde at the node of Uranus promising many surprise and unpredictable announcements. Here in the USA November has its mid-term elections, deciphering the truth from the rhetoric will be tricky.
The Sun announces its arrival into Sagittarius on November 22nd, Thanksgiving Day in the USA with great fanfare rushing towards the full moon and Jupiter. The exuberance of whatever happens it will all be OK rings from all corners. Food will be bountiful for the Thanksgiving feast as the Moon resides in Taurus, who has a keen knack to bring to the table delicious rich food.
With the full moon rising in the early hours of Friday morning the 23rd in Gemini, conversations can last to the wee hours long after the table was cleared. It is super important to be careful while traveling leading up to the full moon and a couple of days after as Mercury retrograde square Neptune can cause traveling snafus if not downright not paying attention while driving, Def want to watch out for the other guy. As in the Scorpio new moon chart this Gemini Full moon also has Venus opposite Uranus although this time the Moon is on the other side of the volley ball net, in Gemini the need to get ones idea across and be acknowledge for wisdom is working all be herself. It is a time not to take offense if you can see and know things others can’t. Strong opinions whether politically correct or not are the flavor of the day and getting caught up in a one sided game may not be fun. Save your strength, ideas, and wisdom for when there is a better opening. Listen to your intuition and you will know when to ask for that bonus, get the acknowledgment, or simply not be fighting the current trying to get things down when life, and others, are not cooperating.
It might feel like half the world is on the road trying to get home Sunday the 25th/ Monday 26th as Mercury retrograde is square Mars. Get ready for people butting in line, at the airport or on the highway. Relief comes with the yearly meeting with the Sun and Jupiter. Last year there was a lot of hype over Sun conjunct Jupiter, saying it is the luckiest day of the Year. Don’t believe the hype, but it is a nice vibe that reminds us to look to the positive, all those old saying, silver linings, glass half full, etc etc. It is a time to ask for help from the universe to have more faith and confidence that you can achieve something you may have trepidation over. Yes you can do it, the Sun/Jupiter says. Maybe others have done it too, maybe not, it doesn’t matter. What matters is you can do it and all you need is the motivation and confidence and it is yours. It is a great way to say good bye to November.

Clearing the space for whatever you want next. This can include relationships that are troublesome or problematic.

The full moon in Taurus on the 4th will shine the light on what may be cluttering up your mind, body or spirit. This full moon has Venus at the same degree that the last new moon in Libra was. It is opposite Uranus and is the ruler of the Moon in Taurus. An emphasis on relationships is brought up once again, and if your significant other and you have gotten into a routine that is boring now is a time to shake it up and add excitement. With Venus moving into Scorpio on the 7th and connecting with Jupiter on the 13th, relationships take a turn towards deep intimacy. This is also a good time to double check your financial status to make sure that all is safe and sound with your credit history and lock up your personal information for hackers not to steal your identity.
- The full moon on the 4th at 12 degrees of Scorpio the moon known as the beaver moon or hunters moon.
- Saturn trine Uranus in the fire signs of Sagittarius and Aries. In effect the whole month exact on the 11th.

The Scorpio new moon on the 18th at 26 degrees is exactly opposite Sedna at 26 degrees of Taurus which is conjunct the fixed star Caput Algol, a fixed star with negative connotations of losing one’s head over something. Rash or impulsive decisions that you may regret latter are quite possible, especially around sexual or financial situations. Since Sedna embodies the archetype of feeling misled or betrayed and Scorpio can get very upset when she is betrayed, this is a time to think before you leap into any situation. Couple with this vibe is Mars in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn, revenge and anger at being mistreated is highly likely.
The positive side of this energy is diving deep into the subconscious to uncover gems of wisdom that have held you back from your own intuition, intrinsic empowerment and creative juices that when used help you to be in charge of your own destiny.
The Sun shifting into Sagittarius on the 21st while Neptune is stationed to go direct is a time of dreaming big of what you want, how to get it, and all the possibilities that life has to offer. It is a time to look towards the future and dream big. In the USA it is Thanksgiving time, and one of the busiest times of year for travel. As great as Neptune is for imagination and dreaming, it can create havoc for a busy travel day. Double check all your documents, times, and other traveling details so you have no hiccup at the airport.
The month finishes with Mercury connected to Saturn at the degree of the galactic center. Under some circumstances Mercury with Saturn can be depressing, or a tough time to study, or serious thoughts. All of which are true to a certain extent, but connected to the Galactic center brings in a new realm of thinking in such a way that will lead you towards your place in the universe. A purification of intentions are happening now. Excellent time for deep meditations to go into the void of deep space where there is no thinking but pure consciousness.
November Astrology 2016
November 1st is all Saints Day, traditions in one way or another honor the dead this time of the year. How appropriate for Scorpio which feels the other side of living so strongly.
How have you fared in the last 2 months? The astrological cosmic waves sent pulsars in the form of Eclipses, Pluto movements, and intense Uranus full moons. As we move into November the energy gets into a flow in order to continue working on everything we have piled on our proverbial plates of life. The first two weeks can be especially fruitful as there will be three planets changing signs between the 9th and 12th. This can represent three distinct areas of your life that have shifts and movements.
First Mars shifts into Aquarius on the 9th giving strength to ideas of connecting with friends and the willingness to fight for a cause that contributes to the betterment of humanity. Then Venus moves into Capricorn on the 11th desiring respect and courtesy in love and friendships.

The full moon in Taurus is a powerful super moon as the moon is closest to the earth at this cycle and will appear very large. The axis between Scorpio and Taurus will bring up financial issues personal and global. On the romantic side it is a very passionate sexy weekend, although you might find that you are spending a little more money than you had originally planned. Black Moon Lilith is in Scorpio with the Sun highlighting deep passion or rage against patronizing platitudes towards women. The Goddess energy is on the rise and her powerful undercurrents are palpable. Neptune is conjunct the south node. This is a reminder to reconnect with your divinity within.

Mid to late November the unending pushing forward begins to take its toll and as Neptune stations on the 19th the universe is sending a reminder to stop, get centered, release, and refocus. The station direct with the south node is extremely important for those who want to connect with spiritual wisdom. Pay attention to what is around you this weekend.

Month of November Astrology
November Astrology 2015
We enter into November still riding on the coattails of the Scorpio new moon eclipse. Scorpio is the season for intensity, obsession, passion, and addictive behavior. Now not all obsessions or addictive behavior needs to be labeled in a negative light. Many brilliant minds focus intently on an invention to create, with dedication obsession until they master something that helps the rest of mankind. The energy of focused addictive behavior is here this month so it is up to you to direct it in the direction that is supportive in your life.
The full moon on November 6th brings passion and focus to find purpose and meaning in life.
Venus is connected with the heliocentric node of mars, emphasizing connecting with what or who you love and desire. Jealousy can rear its head, where one feels that life has shortchanged them and others have something more that you. Be conscious not to fall into those feelings.
Saturn is opposite Sedna, the archetypal principle of being conned or let down in life, where what we that if we did this, or went there, or did that, then life would turn out a certain way and we find out that no, the hope or promise of what we thought or expected was a lie.
If you don’t have the sense that your life has meaning, that you are wasting your time, not accomplishing what you came onto the planet to do, then the full moon can be an emotionally trying time.
There are 4 new cycles in November, Mars conjunct Pluto on the 10th, Venus with Saturn on the 12th, Sun with Saturn on the 18th and Mercury with Saturn on the 25th. A new cycle is when 2 planets are at the same degree in a sign.
Mars Pluto can stir up deep urge to have ones way and not be blocked by outside circumstances or others who want to control or manipulate you. On the other hand Mars Pluto also stirs up anger issues, any deep seated frustrations can come to the surface, especially those dealing with Capricorn areas, such as around your work, your boss, the government and all policies that are enforced that you feel boxed in by.
Venus with Saturn is tough on relationships that are struggling, you can feel alone and misunderstood. This is a good time to take a hard look at what is most important to you and eliminate the extraneous.
Sun Saturn is a good day to reassess your career and life goals. Again with the emphasis on making a commitment to have what you want in life, do something about it and cut out that which is no longer serving you.
Mercury Saturn can be a day where you find your mind mulling over how to get something accomplished and having thoughts of all the obstacles in the way. Yet it is a good time to make plans that need a step by step program in order to fulfill a larger goal.
Venus leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius on the 18th, a precursor for our upcoming medley of Sagittarian times. Venus in Sag reminds us of the value of travel and learning for the sake of knowing something more. The need to seek greener pastures has momentum from the previous message to reevaluate what is working in your life and what isn’t.
The Sun enters Sagittarius the day of the new moon on November 22nd 7:32am EST, hence the new moon in Sag is 0 degrees. The yearly splash into lets have fun and leave the past behind Sag is altered with a Neptune influence as Neptune in Pisces is squaring the new moon and Venus. This can show up as knowing you want something more, but unclear about how to go about it. There may also be many reminders around you of the suffering or helplessness of others around you. One of the best ways to use this energy is in deep meditation and creative endeavors. Spiritual growth and development are powerful messages at this time.
Mercury enters Sagittarius on the 27th filling our mind with strong opinions. Have faith and hold onto the affirmations that support you in believing in your life and your future.
Full Moon in Gemini December 2014.
The full moon on December 6th is on the heliocentric node of Uranus, shaking up the norm to include more in life that expands the boundaries of your comfort zone. While most astrologers overlook the planetary nodes the evidence of their impact is obvious. The December full moon is given the name the cold moon, or long nights moon by tradition for the northern hemisphere.
The degree of the full moon is at 14. Look at your chart to see where the full moon is falling. The monthly astrology forecast will give you a clue yet that is based upon setting the ascendant the same as your sun sign. This is a common practice among astrologers, in fact, there is a thought that once you have finished your first Saturn return, your chart will operate as if your sun is on the ascendent. However in my experience I find both have meaning but where the new moon and full moon fall in your houses will definately tell you more about how to know what will come up for you during the full moon.
And even more important, what to pay attention to so you can tap into the message from the astrology to activate and fortify different areas of your life.
The Gemini full moon will bring information to you for you to enlightened areas of your life that fall within a particular house.
First House: Physical appearance, traits and characteristics. First impressions. General outlook into the world. Ego. Beginnings and initiatives.
Second House: Material and immaterial things of certain value. Money. Belongings, property, acquisitions. Cultivation and growth. Substance. Self-Worth.
