You may feel as if you are tested for the clarity of your thinking and forced to prove your intentions. There is potential for conflicts so be sure to listen to others so that you can reconcile them. Do not assume and be sure you feel the intentions of others. This will not be a boring week.
You may have some ego conflicts with others so be careful not to let your actions be dictated by subconscious energies. If you feel irritable or impatient this means your energy levels may be too high so remember to ground! Frustration can lead to illness if the energy turns inward. If the energy is used consciously it can be positive and allow you to accomplish good work.
Remember Venus is in Libra until Saturday influencing a strong need to communicate more truthfully, to be fair-minded, to find healthier ways to talk to ourselves, communicate our needs to others, and to find new self-love rituals. This is a time of healing all love wounds, to find a balance of giving & receiving, and to let go of the idea you are only loved if others love you. Love yourself so deeply that no one else is used to fill a void.
NEW MOON IN SCORPIO Nov 15
On the 15th of November, just a few days after Mars going Direct, there’s an intense New Moon in the deep, watery sign of Scorpio. The Moon is not traditionally always comfortable in this sign, even though water is her favorite element. It can reveal our collective dark side, our shadows, and all the monsters under the bed that we are afraid to confront and see. Symbolically, the New Moon is a dark time, a time of going inward rather than outward, a time of manifestation as she waxes and grows in light in the coming weeks and months. Combined with the shadowy, secretive sign of Scorpio, we can expect this New Moon to be particularly deep and mysterious.
The traditional ruler of this sign, Mars, is still sitting in his home sign of Aries, the Warrior. We may feel a collective up surging of action, of needing to plant intentions that push us into taking control of your situations – and this applies to the worldwide stage, too. Mars is widely aspected to Pluto and Venus, which may bring about extra drama and pressures on our relationships, specifically in our romantic relationships. However, this can be work relationships, too, as Mars rues work in general.
With the intensity of Scorpio, combined with Pluto and Mars, we will also need to be mindful of not allowing our shadow parts to take over. It’s common to see moments of violence, feeling like we have to be ruthless or dominate in order to get ahead. It’s important to never judge ourselves for our normal, human feelings, but to instead, be proud that we don’t act on them. And to keep a good eye on world events and how they unfold. Pluto is, after all, the modern ruler of Scorpio, and can bring on profound, deep transformation, along with the phoenix-like energy of Scorpio New Moon. What do you want to burn all the way to thru ground, and resurrect? This is the theme of the Scorpio New Moon, and it’s not airy-fairy.
It’s also important to take into account the Mercury-Uranus opposition, as that may have our plans becoming disrupted, and our minds changing every few moments as new stimulus and information comes into our environment. The challenge here is to stay grounded and not overreact to the constantly – changing status quo. This is, after all post-election and likely that interesting, new, news emerges.
Finally, Saturn and Pluto square the Libra Venus, which further disrupts our romantic and personal relationships, making it hard to find compromise. Power struggles are possible, as well as feelings of insecurity, guilt, and problems around pleasure and joy. Money issues may become prevalent and we are asked to prune, to be careful and reserved.
In love, we are asked to look at any toxic dynamics and find new way of dealing with them in order to make ways for a deeper and truer intimacy and togetherness. Rather than giving into the collective shadow, let us rise above and transform, be reborn. After all, Scorpio rules death and rebirth, and knows just how to turn coal into diamonds. Yes, we may feel extra pressure and intensity around this New Moon with karmic endings even coming about, but we might look forward to the next six months to see the results of the hard work we put in now.
VENUS IN SCORPIO Nov 21
Venus is now in Scorpio which will intensify your relationships and make them alot more emotional. It is charged toward dynamic emotional growth and radical intimacy. Venus in Scorpio brings intensity to our connections, a carnal urge to understand what it is that brings us closer together and what, ultimately, stands to drive us apart.
Venus in Scorpio can indicate an emotionally passionate, ardent, sexually uninhibited and intense romantic life. Your social circle may include many who are interested in the mysteries or those who are engaged in some form of occult work or interested in profound subjects. Any problems or relationship issues that occurred during Venus initial Scorpio phase in September/October may resurface.
SUN IN SAGITTARIUS Nov 21
With the Sun in Sagittarius, our focus shifts from the need for an intimate connection with a person and with ourselves, to the desire to reach out to the world and connect with something larger than ourselves. You may have more energy and self-confidence, be more honest and straightforward, outgoing, idealistic and scrupulously fair. Your vigor of personality is ideally suited to sport and outdoor games of all kinds.
While the Sun moves through this fiery, mutable sign, we can take steps to increase our understanding and awareness of the world around us. We are more able to muster up the courage to expand our horizons and branch out into new ways of thinking. We can gain more confidence and optimism by focusing on the “big picture” as we move away from our focus on the details of mundane existence. Although we may be prone to overdoing our expectations, we have the opportunity to nurture our faith, hope, and vision under this influence.
There is a great love of travel and the open-air. Your tolerant, philosophical, generous and open-hearted outlook ensure your way in life is much eased by the welcome you receive from others. On the negative side, you may be irresponsibly boisterous, careless and capricious, with a tendency to jump to conclusions easily.
