Mercury goes retrograde from Nov. 20 – Dec. 14 and may put a damper on Holiday sales. Remember to use this time wisely to finish up old projects, meditate and relax. On Nov. 3, both Venus and Mercury move into Sagittarius helping you to have fun and adventure in love, socialization and decision-making. Take care of your Biorhythms when they take a jolt, as we turn our clocks back an hour to standard time on Sunday, Nov. 6th.
Neptune goes Direct on Nov. 9th after five months of being retrograde. This is a good time to recognize any deceptions, dependencies or cover-ups that have plagued you since last June. Now you will now have more clarity of what’s really going on.
A Full Moon, at 18 degrees Taurus on Nov. 10th reminds us to take care of our bodies, our needs and to find balance in our changing world. The Taurus full moon helps us move ahead by facing reality and what needs to be done. Here we use stamina, determination and persistence to plough through any obstacles that arise, as we bring things to a happy conclusion.
With the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus both practicality and passion are brought to our endeavors, so it’s time to finish and bring creative projects to a close. Because both of these signs are fixed, whatever we accomplish will have a lasting effect.
The New Moon on the 25th of Nov., 2 degrees Sagittarius, is the last of four solar eclipses this year, and the one this month is only a partial one, seen from the regions of Antarctica to New Zealand. With three other planets also in Sagittarius (Venus, Mercury & Sun), we can look forward to a rather super-charged day. Be careful though, Sagittarius tends to be a little too optimistic and looks towards the highest possibilities instead of what is real and grounded in the now.
With Mercury Retrograde there is also a good chance that there will be some communication and travel mix-ups during the Thanksgiving Holiday. On the bright side, this is a new cycle of adventure beckoning you to move towards growth. So take some risks, but keep the big picture in mind.
Look to your charts to see if you have any planets close to 2 degrees in any of the signs. If so, this Solar Eclipse will affect you the most.
