November 2015

Much of November offers us the ability to move things along productively and effectively, drawing upon a best practices approach and an intuitive understanding as to how to do more with less.

Details can be attended to, all the while that the presentation is well considered and highly appealing. We may have the vision in mind, the sense of personal destiny encouraging us forward and the persistence to accomplish a great deal. Even if we feel we are only putting one foot in front of the other, we are likely to be making great progress at this time. It would be wise for us now and then to look up from our many involvements to restore our faith in the bigger picture, to keep the light aglow even if that light seems at the end of a dark tunnel.

Early November has Mercury exiting Libra to enter Scorpio on the 2nd, the same day that Venus conjuncts Mars. Our thoughts can become concentrated, focused on the core of any situation. Our interest in doing the best that we can, all the while presenting ourselves in a put together manner, instill a sense of true meaning and purpose and show us to be capable, talented and with a certain panache.

The 5th of November has the Sun sextile Pluto. We can pare down our ambitions to a select few, emphasizing those that have true meaning and purpose for us. We may be far more astute with the realization that too much can prove to be overload. We might find ourselves cutting away the extraneous in order to concentrate on the most significant. This is a time for us to go for the gold and engage those activities that reflect our essence, our spirit and our soul.

Our intuitive sense may be heightened on the 6th of November as Mercury trines Neptune. We could cut through the veil of maya, disperse the illusions in order to see what is truly going on. By trusting our inner voice, we may gain a crystal clear clarity that dispels the impressions and the opinions projected at us. We may ‘know’ without knowing, as we tune into a higher sensibility that transcends the reasoning mind.

On the 8th of November, Venus exits Virgo to enter its own Sign of Libra. With some of the sorting through and clearing away debris in our lives that we might have done over the past couple of weeks, we are better able to find the balance in our lives. With an increased sense of our own essence and the depth of our being, we might be more considerate of other people, less anxious about what is going on in our lives and in the world-at-large and with a heightened desire to instill greater serenity into our lives.

The second week of November could be close to idyllic with various pleasant energy configurations at play. Mercury sextiles Pluto and the Sun sextiles Jupiter on the 10th of November, just prior to the Scorpio New Moon on the 11th and followed shortly thereafter with Mars exiting Virgo to enter Libra on the 12th. Friday the 13th could prove anything other than scary as Venus sextiles Saturn and Mercury sextiles Jupiter.

Mid-November could be a veritable love feast. We are less interested in the mundane matters in our world. We may feel as though we have the uncanny ability to not only enter our safe, happy place in our mind’s eye but to actually manifest in physical form a sanctuary in which we can thrive in love and peace with everyone around us.

The dynamics of tension and friction may seem to drop away in the first half of November. We seem fortified by our confidence and optimism. We might come to an appreciation that some of the turmoil we could have experienced over the past few years have been like a honing tool, an alchemical process to turn our base metal into gold.

Although we could easily fall into reveries of good thoughts and good feelings and mutual appreciation for the people in our lives, it would be wise for us to bear in mind that we live in a world of cycles, phases of ups and phases of downs.

There are few hiccups during the first three weeks of November. We may feel as though we had been transported to Nirvana, Samadhi, Heaven on Earth and whatever other paradise realm we might define.

The Sun conjuncts Mercury on the 17th of November, Neptune turns direct on the 18th, Mercury exits Scorpio to enter Sagittarius on the 20th, followed by the Sun exiting Scorpio to enter Sagittarius on the 21st.

And therein lies a rub. Although Sagittarius is a Sign indicative of expansion, optimism and exuberance, we might discover as we come towards the end of November and into December that all is not right in the world, which can transfer into issues within our own personal lives.

The 20th of November can provide an initial prelude to some of the agitation and irritability that might unfold as we come towards the end of November and into December. The 20th has Venus square Pluto, the same day Mercury exits Scorpio to enter Sagittarius. Our interactions with other people can hit up against a brick wall with everyone liable to grandstanding and being obstinate in their opinions.

The 22nd of November has the Sun exiting Scorpio to enter Sagittarius and triggering a Stellium of three planets in Sagittarius as the Sun joins Mercury and Saturn in the Mutable Fire Sign. The increased Sagittarian influence also heightens the Mutable Sign T-Square by Sign with Jupiter in Virgo opposed Neptune in Pisces and both square the Sagittarian-transiting planets.

Our anxiety and nervous energy can be ratcheted up during this end of November. This tension can impact our mood swings with wild extremes. We might also have the liability of running around in circles without much clarity as to what we are doing or why we are doing it. We have to avoid our unease devolving into paranoia, for we could easily fall into a victim role.

This end of November can see our moods turning dour with heightened anxiety. This is a time when it is essential that we neither give into our fears nor accept at face value what appears to be going on. Illusions and delusions can be strongly at play.

Venus opposes Uranus on the 23rd of November. Our relationships could be a little dicey with people looking out for their personal selves and less interested in what is going on with someone else.

Although Mars sextiles Saturn on the 24th, Mercury conjuncts Saturn that same day. We can take care of business, deal with what needs to get done, yet under a dampening blanket that our movements are being restricted and our thoughts being narrowed to solely what is right in front of us.

This last week of November could prove a depressing time, and more so if we buy into what is being presented to us. Our sensitivity will be acute, but it would be essential for us to read between the lines in order to get greater clarity at a time when clarity may be a rare commodity.

The week of the 23rd of November begins with the Venus opposed Uranus on the 23rd, followed on the 24th by Mars sextile Saturn and Mercury conjunct Saturn. The 25th has the Gemini Full Moon on the same day that Mercury sextiles Mars and Mercury squares Neptune. The 26th, Thanksgiving Day in the US, has Saturn square Neptune. The week ends on the Sunday, the 29th, with the Sun conjunct Saturn and the Sun square Neptune.

This last week of November may demand that we put on our blinders and do what needs to be done. We might not be happy about what we’re doing but any questioning of our actions could only lead to depletion and depression. This is a period when it would be suggested that we have our ‘to do’ list well-planned prior to this week with the idea that we take things step-by-step, checking off the items on our ‘to do’ list without spending much time on the whys and wherefores.

We can accomplish what needs to get done, but it would be wise for us to maintain a narrow focus and not concern ourselves with incidents that might be occurring in the world-at-large. This timeframe could see some intense storm systems with catastrophic results, and our emotions could be easily played and preyed upon.

Our moods can be a little sour and our energy flagging at this end of November.

Let’s keep in mind that often what appears to be going on is but an illusion, events manipulated that create delusion.

November 2015… Living the Dream for Awhile…
