Astrology Transits November 2021 — Emotional Deep Diving

You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level. — Eckhart Tolle

November emphasizes the sign of Scorpio and, by aspect, all of the fixed signs (Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus and Leo).  The Scorpio energy can be challenging because we are tasked with deep diving into our emotions, actions and reactions. At the same time, November features lots of Uranian energy, especially at the beginning of the month. The key is to “let go to hang on.”  Scorpio is a fixed sign that resists change, while Uranus is the planet of surprises, changes, breakthroughs and unexpected events. During November, the Sun, Mercury and Mars are all tweaking Uranus, bringing sudden happenings of all kinds.

The Sun, Mars and Mercury in Scorpio for most of the forecast period are about experiencing deep emotions that can lead to transformation on a profound level.  The New Moon on November 4 and the Full Moon Eclipse on November 19 are especially charged with this transformative energy. Take time to go within and to let yourself feel during these potent times.

October 23: Sun entered Scorpio.

October 30:  Mars Enters Scorpio.

November 1-2: Mercury Square Pluto at 23 Degrees Libra/Capricorn. The energy now will be similar to that felt between September 20 and October 4.  Mercury was square Pluto at that time also. Mercury retrograded backwards away from Pluto. Now, as it moves forward it is once again squaring Pluto. Typically, when a planet makes the third pass over a natal planet it becomes supercharged.  So . . . Mercury square Pluto once again brings up issues around power and transformation.  Mercury in Libra is more apt to negotiate and compromise, while Pluto in Capricorn may be in power play mode. Pluto here may want to know, “what’s in it for me.”  Tread lightly.

November 3-5:  Sun opposing Uranus at 11 Degrees Scorpio/Taurus. Those around you may seem to be erratic or strange and we all feel restless and unfocused under Sun opposition Uranus. Watch emotional eating when this tension filled aspect activates your emotions.  The restless feeling is teaching you to focus on what you DO want.  Acknowledge the gift, as it will be helpful later when the energy is less charged. There is no better aspect for getting unstuck!

November 4:  New Moon at 12 Degrees Scorpio Opposition Uranus. Mercury Enters Scorpio and Venus Enters Capricorn Sextile Each other. The New Moon and Sun are in a tight opposition to Uranus, a very challenging, chaotic and tumultuous energy pattern.  Watch for hidden agendas, aggression and unexpected happenings of all kinds. Secrets may be revealed. Watch the news for more on this in the public sphere. Venus sextile Mercury helps smooth out the abrupt Uranian and emotional Scorpionic energy. 

Use this powerful energy to break out of old, stale habits, to transform your life in deep, meaningful ways (Scorpio) and to contemplate ways to express your own unique self (Uranus). This configuration can truly be an amazing tool to reset your life.

November 10-13  This time period contains both sublime and very challenging energy.

Sun Trine Neptune at 19 Degrees Scorpio/Pisces. Sun trine Neptune is a gentle, compassionate, and mystical connection.  Enjoy helping others, immersing yourself in music or going on a mini retreat. This energy is especially lovely for the water signs (Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer).

Mercury Square Saturn at 7 Degrees Scorpio/Aquarius and Mercury Opposition Uranus at 7 degrees of Scorpio/Aquarius/Taurus.  The fixed Sun signs (Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus and Leo) or those of you with planets from 2 degrees to 17 degrees of fixed signs may feel like you can’t win or that you are being buffeted by forces beyond your control. Practice deep breathing and stay focused.  You may give some thought to whether your fixed nature is a plus or a minus. Learn to give a little, while holding on to your core values (Taurus). Above all, monitor your emotions and your tendency to become controlling and fixated when under stress.

November 14-15: Sun Square Jupiter at 22-23 degrees of Scorpio/Aquarius.  While Sun square Jupiter can bring a welcome sense of optimism, the downside is a tendency to bring excess into all areas of your life. Think big, but think realistically under this expansive energy.

November 15-19: Sun sextile Pluto between 23-25 Scorpio/Capricorn; Mars opposing Uranus from 11-12 Scorpio/Taurus (November 16-19).  Sun sextile Pluto is superb for clearing and cleaning, whether it is your house or a work situation that has become disorganized and disheveled.  Mars opposition Uranus will give you a burst of energy and you might be surprised how much you can accomplish. However, be mindful!  Mars opposition Uranus can bring accidents, or other undesirable outcomes due to impulsive, unfocused actions.

November 19:  Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse at 27 Degrees Taurus/Scorpio.

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on November 19 urges you to wrap up loose ends and let go of those people, places and things that no longer serve you. We each have an inner knowing when the things around us are no longer helpful, or are even destructive to us. Your intuition is at an all-time high now, so use that sixth sense to guide you in your transformation. The veil between the material world as we know it and the unseen world of intuition is always thin during an eclipse. When the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is on the Scorpio/Taurus axis, it raises your intuition several fold. This eclipse opens the gateway to transformation that will be felt for the next two years as we continue to have eclipses along the Scorpio/Taurus axis.

November 20-21: Mercury Sextile Pluto at 23 Degrees Scorpio/Capricorn and Mercury Square Jupiter at 23 Degrees Scorpio/Aquarius. Mercury sextile Pluto gives you the ability to look beneath outer appearances to discern the Truth. Use this helpful energy to examine, scrutinize and probe the deeper mysteries.

November 21:  Sun Enters Sagittarius.

November 24:  Mercury Enters Sagittarius. 

November 29-30: Sun Conjunct Mercury, Mercury Trine Neptune and Sun Sextile Saturn. Mercury Sextile Saturn and Venus Sextile Neptune. The introspective, rather somber mood lightens up considerably with the Sun in Sagittarius, followed by Mercury in Sagittarius on November 24.  The month ends in an array of easy aspects further lightening the emotional landscape.

  • Use the Sun conjunct Mercury to start a new venture, initiate helpful conversations and to put forward your plans for the future. The Sun sextile Saturn helps to put a firm foundation under your planning.
  • Use Mercury trine Neptune to daydream a little, but mostly to add imagination and passion to your ideas and plans.
  • Sun sextile Saturn and Mercury sextile Saturn ensures that your dreams and imagination are rooted in practicality and that they are totally doable.
  • Venus sextile Neptune arouses your imagination and gets the creative juices flowing. Spend time around beauty, tour an art gallery or enjoy nature under this auspicious sextile. If you have a special someone in your romantic life, you will feel closer than ever.  Consider a candlelight dinner.
