It’s Scorpio season which means it’s your birthday month. The Sun adds confidence, vitality and warmth to the mix until the 22nd when it changes star sign. This month, you’re going in deep. Here’s the planetary pattern:
Planets in Scorpio:
- Mars (action/drive) – all month
- Sun (illumination) – until the 22nd
- Mercury (communication) – 5th to 24th
Your ruling planet Mars is in your star sign Scorpio throughout November. This is where action planet Mars excels and brings with it a boost of energy or confidence. You’re prepared to fight for what you want when you have the God of War backing you up.
Mars in Scorpio turns the cosmic spotlight towards your personal goals and ambitions and what you want to achieve for yourself. Scorpio rules your physical body and appearance as well as your profile and image. This is your cue to pick up the pace, believe in yourself and make things happen. It’s an exciting planetary energy that’s motivating and purposeful.
This an ideal month for soul-searching, self-analysis, solving mysteries or puzzles. It could bring out the detective within you digging deep for answers.
On the 10th, Mercury and Mars make a powerful conjunction in Scorpio. This is often a time when you’re ready to walk (Mars) your talk (Mercury) and do (Mars) what you say (Mercury). It’s potentially argumentative too and you might feel frustrated as both planets are squared by Saturn in Aquarius, the star sign at the base of your horoscope.
Someone could stop you making progress or show their disappointment. You may be up against the authorities, a parent or someone disapproving. Be aware that other people could behave unpredictably this month and this is because of the planet Uranus in your opposite star sign Taurus.
Uranus is involved with the New Moon in Scorpio on the 4th and new beginnings could begin super-fast thanks to a third party. Then, Uranus opposes Mercury and Mars in Scorpio on the 13th and 17th. You may recognise where you’re not in agreement with other people and where you want or need to break free.
This month is extra powerful because a new eclipse cycle begins cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse takes place on the 19th, the first eclipse in a cycle that will complete in October 2023.
These eclipses are about your relationships, your one-to-one’s, also your identity and who you’re becoming. These are the areas where life could be dramatic or you sense that things are changing. Eclipses often have a theme of endings and new beginnings so pay close attention to what happens during this phase.
Your relationships are shifting so embrace change as best you can. If someone’s unreliable, take back your power. If you want more freedom in your life, make it happen.
Yet, there are other ways that this powerful Scorpio season could play out. You may have a psychic experience or converse with the dead. The 16th, 21st & 27th are dates to note. Scorpio season is when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest. Just ensure you don’t go so deep that you lose sight of the light.
If you’re a typical Sun Scorpio, you may have a side to your nature that can spiral down. If this happens you need other people in your life who can bring humour, laughter and lightness into your world.
Rest of the Month’s Astrology
If you’re looking for an anchor, someone to ground you, find the person who embodies Venus in Capricorn. The planet of relating, your partner planet Venus moves into Capricorn on the 5th where it remains all month. This is a steadying influence whether it’s a sibling or neighbour or someone dear to your heart who steps in to help.
Plus, on the day of the eclipse the 19th, there’s a stunning Venus-Uranus trine aspect. Whoever comes into your life on or around this date could be a revelation. Love could turn your life upside-down, perhaps in a good way. Or, you find your confidante, your counsellor, the person you can turn to to talk about anything, no holds barred.
Finally, on the 22nd the Sun enters Sagittarius and your money sector. The Sun is joined two days later on the 24th by Mercury, the planet of communication. This is where to turn your attention towards the end of the month. Plus, make the right money moves and this could help your living situation or your relationship with your family. Set firm boundaries in place on the 29th & 30th.
Eclipse Do’s & Don’ts
Eclipse season is here and a new Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle is underway. Here are some eclipse tips:
- Try not to fear an eclipse – they are a reminder that we’re not always in control.
- Don’t choose an eclipse date to launch a project or start something new.
- Wait a few days after an eclipse before taking action. Eclipse symbolism is shadowy and hidden.
- Once the eclipse shadow lifts, then you can try to take advantage of any changes that have occurred.
- Know that the eclipses are closely linked to the karmic nodes & wheel of destiny – they offer a turning point.
