The deep, dark and mysterious month of November is upon us! We are entering the world of Scorpio, the 8th and most powerful sign of the zodiac. This power comes from their strong alignment with human psychology and the ability to embody the best or worst of human nature. Scorpio is a black or white being and there is very little gray or middle ground. They love or hate and commit all the way or fully dismiss. Their emotional waters run very deep and they only completely trust a select few. They are famous for taking revenge on those who hurt or wrong them - but the more evolved Scorpio personality understands that revenge exacts a price they aren’t willing to pay. Over time, they learn to rein in their stingers and realize their jabs are even more painful to themselves than to the person they attacked. Subtle yet intense, passionate about what they love (or hate!), it’s no wonder this sign has a major reputation. You will find no greater friend or more formidable foe than our dear Scorpio.
Our Scorpio journey began on October 23rd and comes along with a Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Scorpio. This signals a time when we are undergoing deep transformations in the areas of spirituality and deeply ingrained habits. Hidden secrets and mysteries bubble up from the deepest waters of our subconscious. The more willing we are to face what scares or intimidates us, the more we will grow on an emotional level. There is an abundance of fire and water energy this month - anchored by Mars traveling in practical, earthy Capricorn. Expect emotions to run strong, some folks will be expressive while others tend to bottle it up. A balance between the two is best - as it’s healthy to ‘let it out’, while not bulldozing others with the intensity of our feelings. Remember to be patient, to breathe and ‘ easy does it’!
The Full Moon this month arrives on November 6th at 5:23pm in the sensuous sign of Taurus. This is an excellent moon for grounding, centering and feeling strongly connected to the earth. Foundational plans you make at this time will prosper six months from now, when the sun moves into Taurus.
Neptune moves direct after a long 5 month retrograde on the 16th. This triggers our sleeping dreams to wake up and integrate with our waking life. Compassion, understanding and peace move to the forefront of our minds. We’ll find ourselves apologizing or making amends and smoothing over all the rough spots.
Have a warm and happy November!
