Astrology for November 2014

November begins a transition to a completely different energy and is notably calmer than October as we steer past the Mercury Retrograde and the Lunar & Solar Eclipses. There are a couple of bumps along the way, but the mainstream energy for this month seems to be about letting go of all the rationalizations, logical thinking and fears from the past that have prevented us from launching our Passions, Purpose, and Creativity out into the world! We’ve spent an inordinate amount of time in the dark and it is definitely time to get illuminated!! It makes me feel like singing the line from the Kelly Clarkson’s song, “Out of the Darkness and into the Sun!” Can we finally move past those anchors we have to old beliefs and the story about our past so that as we near 2015 – which is an 8 year of Abundance – we are ready to shine? I believe we can and will.

November begins a transition to a completely different energy and is notably calmer than October as we steer past the Mercury Retrograde and the Lunar & Solar Eclipses.  There are a couple of bumps along the way, but the mainstream energy for this month seems to be about letting go of all the rationalizations, logical thinking and fears from the past that have prevented us from launching our Passions, Purpose, and Creativity out into the world!  We’ve spent an inordinate amount of time in the dark and it is definitely time to get illuminated!!  It makes me feel like singing the line from the Kelly Clarkson’s song, “Out of the Darkness and into the Sun!”  Can we finally move past those anchors we have to old beliefs and the story about our past so that as we near 2015 – which is an 8 year of Abundance – we are ready to shine?  I believe we can and will.

Things to watch out for this month:

Mars conjuncts Pluto on the 10th which can bring us into conflict between what we know we must do to move forward, and the fear we have about doing just that.  Whether this is an inner conflict or an outer test to our newborn passions, don’t make rash decisions or judgments about what to do.  Just breathe and let the fear pass or better yet, make peace with the conflict by realizing it is just a mirror to show you where you might still be needing work to be the best YOU.

Mars squares Uranus on the 12th and creates positive movement forward through possibly surprising inspirations and realizations for us.  That’s why giving up during the Mars – Pluto conjunction will not serve you at all.

Neptune turns Direct on the 16th changing our intuitive landscape by making it a little more difficult to “tune-in.”  When Neptune is in retrograde motion we more easily access our intuitive self, but if we chose not to listen to that inner guidance during the retrograde, Neptune’s direct motion may create a situation where we regret not having listened.  Now it may be a little more difficult to tune in to that intuitive voice through the chorus of energies surging through the chart.  Meditation is a good tool to get us in touch with our intuition again.

The Moon Cycle this month:

The Full Frost Moon or Beaver Moon is November 6 at 14° Scorpio/Taurus.

Meaning of Sun during full moon:  The mental evolution that it takes in order to connect to our future self.

Meaning of the Moon at this time:  Building character by moving forward fearlessly;

The New Moon is November 22 at 0° Sagittarius.

Meaning of the Moon:  Abstraction – seeing ourselves as part of a larger organism and making decisions that are good for us and ultimately good for everyone.

 

November through the Signs

Remember to read the information for your Sun sign, Moon sign and Rising Sign to get a better idea of what is coming up for you.  If you do not know what your moon and rising signs are, go to http://www.astro.com and make up your chart.  You will need your birth date, time and place.  Or, consult your astrologer 🙂

Aries – March 20 to April 19

The energy for you Aries is possibly explosive as Mars adds its energy to the ongoing Pluto-Uranus square that has been sitting at your Career/Profession House and your Personal Self.  Life has been interesting – no doubt!  This month should bring you some clarity or a feeling of being able to see the “light at the end of the tunnel” that leads you to your new beginning.  Be willing to release whatever is not going to support you on this journey.

Taurus – April 20 to May 20

You may have been experiencing a spiritual overhaul or revolution, and the feeling for you of coming out of the dark is very real.  With Uranus pressuring your 12th House of the Hidden Subconscious Patterns, you may be having one “aha” after another about what has been the root cause of repeating patterns, limiting thinking, self-sabotage and fears that have held you back.  Mars adding its energy to Pluto in your 9th House of Spirit elevates your perspective, and like a phoenix rising up out of the ashes, you too may undergo a striking transformation!

Gemini – May 21 to June 20

You may have been struggling to transform your reality to match the vision you have been holding for your life – especially as it relates to what you do in the world i.e. Career or Profession.  Well, this month you have some help arriving to make things a little clearer.  Mars added to your 8th House of Transformation gets things moving in the right direction for you, and Neptune moving Direct in your 10th House of Career/Profession means that you can stop the dreaming part of your visioning of your future, and begin the action steps it takes to get there.  One step at a time though, dear Gemini, you’re just getting the party started.  Things will really roll as you get into December and January.

Cancer – June 21 to July 22

Relationships may have been tricky for you of late, and this month, with the addition of Mars to your 7th House of Relationships, things can be a little more confrontational.  Take it easy, dear Cancer, as this is a time for you to form relationships that are mutually empowering and supportive.  The house of relationships also pertains to business relationships, and with Uranus still in your 10th House of Career/Profession it may be business partners that are the sources for change and upset.  Let your intuition lead you to the correct way to handle any relationships in your life.

Leo – July 23 to August 22

Have you been on a spiritual revelation or what?  Notice I said revelation and not revolution.  Uranus has been in your 9th House of Beliefs-Spirit-Philosophy for a while now, with Pluto-Mars in your 6th House of Work, Service and Health. You may be very aware that a transformation is needed in your life, but up until now you weren’t clear just how that would happen or how that would look.  My guess is that this month, you will be able to “see” the way through to the change you have wanted in your life.  Go with the flow Leo, don’t let yourself stay stuck!

Virgo – August 23 to September 22

The Uranus, Mars, Pluto trio has you in the midst of change this month, Virgo!  It feels as if you can no longer tolerate mediocrity, and you’re plunging straight into what feels good, following your passions and desires instead of doing what you “have to.”  There is a real sense of freedom coming for you as we near 2015.  One little warning though; keep your eyes wide open when it comes to relationships as Neptune is moving forward in your 7th House of Relationships revealing much about the nature of the people who are, or who have been closest to you.

Libra – September 23 to October 22

Are you reaching new heights of stability at home and in your relationships?  The eclipses may have brought issues up to the light of day to be cleared, and now you can see your way into a more loving, kind, and balanced relationship!   Libra loves balance and harmony, and lately things may have been a little rocky for you, so this comes as a welcome shift.  Don’t overlook health issues during November.  If something doesn’t feel right in your body, definitely see your health care professional.  Be sure to eat right, get enough rest and move your body.

Scorpio – October 23 to November 21

Scorpio, in another month you will be free of Saturn that has been sitting in your 1st House of Self.  You have probably gone through a lot of emotional ups and downs during the last 2 ½ years and are ready to be free.  If you are one of the Scorpios that has resisted letting go of the debris in your emotional field over the last couple of years, then you may be in for some emotionally induced health issues. Free yourself of old, outworn beliefs, grudges, emotional pain and see a return to the wonderfully creative and passionate side of yourself.

Sagittarius – November 22 to December 20

It seems that your financial picture has been undergoing a rebuilding process over the last few years.  Perhaps your job crumbled away with the economic downturn a few years back, or maybe you just decided that making a change was necessary for you.  I say, keep it up!  With Uranus in your 5th House of Joy, Creativity & Passion, it’s up to you to design your life around exactly those three things.  Pressures on the home front may cloud that up a bit for you over the next month, but don’t worry, by mid-month you will be seeing things clearly again.

Capricorn – December 21 to January 20

When Pluto, the planet of Power & Transformation is moving through the 1st House of the Self, it makes for personal revolution and empowerment, and Capricorn you are being revolutionized and empowered!!  Mars will be activating Pluto in your chart to encourage the emergence of a new, authentic YOU.  This may be a time when your usual caution can be let go of in favor of following the earthly you – your intuitive self, especially as Neptune is sitting in your 3rd House of Communication.  Neptune in this configuration is acting as the intermediary, bringing messages from the higher self into your mind.

Aquarius – January 21 to February 19

Pluto has been in a challenging place for you Aquarius, and now Mars the planet of Action, Conflict and Confrontation joins him in your 12th House of the Subconscious Mind, Self-sabotage, Limitations and Fears.  If ever there was a time for you to be objective and aloof, now is that time.  Don’t allow yourself to attach to the depth of what you may be experiencing.  Be the observer, allow the truth to unfold, and love yourself through this time.  You may discover some deeply held beliefs about yourself that you can get free from, as well as some deeply ingrained Truths that you want to carry forward with.  Try journaling to access what is trying to be revealed to you from the subconscious.

Pisces – February 20 to March 20

The very compassion and love that you are always willing to give to others is now needing to be given to yourself.  Your ruling planet, Neptune, is in your 1st House of the Self, and I would bet that you are learning the lessons of Self-Love.  You’ll be receiving a boost in this area of your life after November 16th when Neptune turns back to forward motion.  Uranus in your 2nd House helps in establishing a new sense of self-worth and value for you.  Perhaps you may even learn the value of healthy boundaries this month!
