Astrology Transits November 2020 – Deep Diving

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. — Carl Jung

Every month I look at the astrological energy, wince — and continue to write about the monthly transits as I see them.  November 2020 is no different.  The month begins with some very challenging energy, which continues off and on throughout the month. 

However, as we move through the deep, Scorpio energy of November we are gifted with several periods of lovely trines and sextiles and the stagnant energy is activated when Mercury, Mars and Neptune turn direct.  November 2020 seems to be a resting point from which we can look back at all we have been through, bless our experiences and begin to move from the darkness into the light. After the solstice on December 21, the energy begins to shift. Use the present deep Scorpio energy and the shorter days and longer nights to probe your soul in preparation for the upcoming shift.  Where have you been and where do you want to go?

October 31:  Full Moon at 8 Degrees Taurus Conjunct Uranus; Sun Opposed Uranus; Retrograde Mercury square Saturn at 26 Degrees Libra/Capricorn.  There is nothing easy about the energy preceding election day in the United States on Tuesday, November 3.

  • Full Moon brings high emotions,
  • Uranus – expect the unexpected,
  • Sun opposed Uranus – our core self feels threatened by the out-of-control Uranus energy,
  • Retrograde Mercury – garbled, mixed messages,
  • Mercury square Saturn – pessimistic thoughts.

­­Mercury stationing direct on November 3rd only adds to the election day confusion. 

November 9:  Venus Opposing Retrograde Mars at 15 Degrees Libra/Aries. Venus in opposition to Mars is not conducive to relationship matters.  Competitive feelings are heightened.

November 7-17: Jupiter Conjunct Pluto at 22 Degrees Capricorn. On a personal level, Jupiter conjunct Pluto urges us to transform those situations and habits that are no longer beneficial to us. It can be a powerful force (Pluto) to help you bring positive (Jupiter) change to your life. If this conjunction falls on your Sun, Moon or personal planets, it can give you a big boost career wise.

The less-than-positive manifestation of this combination is obsession with money and power. Jupiter and Pluto transiting the second house of the US birth chart explains our authority figures obsession to hold on to money and power at all costs.

November 9-10:  Sun Trine Neptune at 18 Degrees Scorpio/Pisces. Finally!  This lovely Sun trine Neptune aspect lets you catch your breath and revel in just being.  Dream your dreams and let your inner muse or creative spirit loose under this beneficial energy.  Because Neptune (along with Saturn) rules the Covid-19 virus, this trine can bring positive medical breakthroughs.  However, because it occurs in the secretive sign of Scorpio and the nebulous sign of Pisces, we may not be aware of any breakthroughs until much later.

November 14-17:  Sun Sextile Jupiter and Pluto at 22 Degrees Scorpio/Capricorn.  This is a very positive connection between the Sun, Jupiter and Pluto.  Sun sextile Jupiter is traditionally considered to be  “lucky” and the Sun sextile Pluto gives you the willpower and “oomph” to take (and complete) the necessary steps to manifest your goals. This would be a good time to review your plans for the future with an optimistic (but realistic) mindset. Pluto reminds you that you may need to re-invent yourself in some way to reap the benefits.

November 15:  Mars Turns Direct at 15 Degrees Aries. As Mars moves into direct motion, some of the overwrought anger should start to dissipate. The cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), in particular, may feel a sense of relief.  Mars moving direct releases some of your pent-up anger and frustration. You may feel more energetic.

November 15:  New Moon at 23 Degrees Scorpio; Venus Square Pluto at 22 Degrees Libra/Capricorn.  The Sun and Moon in Scorpio sextile Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn is beneficial for taking charge of your goals.  Jupiter gives you optimism, while Pluto gives you the will, power and control.  However, with Venus square Pluto in the cardinal signs of Libra and Capricorn, you may run up against obstacles from those around you.  Power plays are likely, particularly with authority figures, both in government and in your personal life.

November 16-17:  Mercury Opposing Uranus at 7 Degrees Taurus/Scorpio. This is one of those “expect the unexpected” aspects, especially as it relates to communication, news stories and potential breakthroughs.  Electrical sparks, blown fuses (Uranus) and sudden, stunning insights (Mercury) are all part of this planetary lineup. Don’t be surprised by anything you hear on the news during this challenging, chaotic opposition.

November 18-20: Sun Sextile Saturn at 26 Degrees Scorpio/Capricorn.  The Scorpio Sun sextile Saturn in Capricorn is a superb time to get things done.  It is particularly good for organizing and for concentrating on the tasks at hand. 

November 19-20: Venus Square Saturn at 27 Degrees Libra/Capricorn.  Venus square Saturn tends to bring delays, disappointments and restrictions.  This is not a good time to engage in speculative ventures or to work out relationship issues.  Wait until Venus is in an easier aspect.

November 21:  Venus Enters Scorpio. Venus in Scorpio through December 15 deepens all relationship matters.  You will want to understand what makes others “tick” and will not suffer fools or shallow individuals lightly.

November 22:  Sun Enters Sagittarius.  The mood lightens considerably with the Sun in Sagittarius.  This is a super time to study something that will expand your mind.  Make travel plans now for when the Covid restrictions loosen.  Study maps and chart the things and places you want to visit.

November 23:  Mercury Trine Neptune at 18 Degrees Scorpio/Pisces. Mercury trine Neptune favors alternative healing methods, spiritual study, visionary dreams and all kinds of psychic impressions. It would be a superb time to get a psychic or astrological reading.

November 27:  Venus Opposing Uranus at 7 Degrees Scorpio/Taurus. Venus opposite Uranus is another “expect the unexpected aspect.”  Delay any relationship decisions whether romantic, business or friendship based. 

November 28:  Neptune Stations Direct at 18 Degrees Pisces. You can begin to make your dreams, daydreams and visions real when Neptune stations direct.  You will feel this shift most strongly if you have planets around 18 degrees of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.

November 30:  Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 9 Degrees Gemini/Sagittarius. Matters pertaining to communication, connection, beliefs, travel and study are triggered by this full Moon lunar eclipse.  A lunar eclipse is about finishing up, closing out and letting go. A Mercury to Saturn sextile brings grounding and clarity. This full Moon lunar eclipse prompts you to examine your beliefs and philosophy.  What beliefs no longer serve you?  Which ones need more study and thought? What do you have to say that has been left unsaid?  Maybe it is time to speak out and state your case, especially with family members.
