November begins as the time between the October 25th solar eclipse in Scorpio and the coming total lunar eclipse on November 8th in Taurus. This is called the time of the eclipse season. These energies can bring old emotions up to the surface or other hidden things. Because Mars is freshly retrograde in Gemini, combined with the lunar eclipse, it is important to use discernment in all the political ads. (Which has not been done) I use three months before and after an eclipse as its effective range, and we have already seen quite a few lies by political organizations.
Communications planet Mercury and relationship planet Venus are both in adventurous and risk-taking Sagittarius at the end of the month. That is both a travel and party combination. People want to travel now, but must allow room for adjustment as warrior Mars is retrograde in Gemini, the sign associated with transportation and delays.
Monday morning holds minor challenges. Most likely, you will just feel tired and of low motivation. We are also adjusting to the time change. Get a good night’s rest for Monday when the Moon moves into hard working Taurus.
There is a total lunar eclipse on Tuesday November 8th, USA Election Day. (17 degrees Taurus-Scorpio). Why does it seem like every major USA general election lately coincides with a cluster of intense, confusing and upsetting astro energies? The last election in 2020 will seem like a smooth, streamlined democratic process compared to this doozy of a midterm election, when a Full Lunar Eclipse in Taurus conjuncts Uranus – while opposing Venus, Mercury and the Sun in Scorpio as well as squaring Saturn in Aquarius. Don’t forget that Mars is retrograde in Gemini as well.
OUCH! Surprise upsets are the feature film along with secretive machinations and backroom alliances – on both sides of the coin – all of which could threaten the stability of our democratic system.
Confusion abounds and with Mars retrograde – no one is really ready to step in and take charge and pick up the pieces.
Early risers in Hawaii and western North America can see the entire eclipse. There is a pattern set up called a T-Square. That has you feeling pulled in three directions simultaneously.
The nurturing Moon in Taurus wants security and comfort, but it’s aligned with Uranus that wants freedom and an adventure into the unknown. The sun in Scorpio is aligned with mental Mercury and balancing Venus. This is likely to bring sarcastic and cynical remarks and strange thoughts for conspiracy theorists. The balancing point is responsible Saturn in Aquarius. The ideal of Aquarius is to create win-win environments, so hopefully this will help minimize any sore losers.
This bewildering energy continues into Wednesday and Thursday with an opposition of the Sun and Uranus along with a square of Mercury and Saturn.
A soothing, calming trine between Venus, Mercury, and Neptune late Thursday afternoon and Saturday could deceptively lull people into believing all is well and back to business as usual. But behind the scenes there could still be chaos, due to Fridays square between the Sun and Saturn, along with a lunar conjunction of Mars square Neptune and Jupiter. This energy tells us that there could be long-standing shady deals lingering in the background, that threaten to blow up this election process.
The positive note of all this hidden energy coming to the surface is the opportunity to transform your value system and release old emotional wounds. Although Saturn in Aquarius is slow-but-sure, it still offers opportunities to create a new world for those who are willing to move forward.
