Happy birthday, November Scorpios! Your month begins with the conjunction to Scorpio Mercury (Nov. 1-5), which only serves to magnify the intense way you already like to conduct things. It’s a very good time for going deep on anything you’ve only seen the surface of; heavy talks, confrontations, interventions, and raw confessions all thrive under this influence. Suss the energy with your trademark intuition to make sure you aren’t crossing boundaries, but with the Sun also in Scorpio through the 21st, your personal power and magnetism is unmatched. However, because of the trine to retrograde Pisces Neptune (Nov. 1-21), fantasy and indecision might be a little inflated, so make sure you’re really in love before you blurt the words, and remember that frequent lucid dreams are just a figment of your overactive subconscious. Jupiter is newly in Scorpio this month, bringing both fortune and magnification to Scorpio themes of lust and desire, secrecy, control, power, obsession,and core truths. There may also be circumstances surrounding death and age, and the wisdom that comes from growing old. Extremes are in vogue and may seem unavoidable at this time--- use them as tools for transformation instead of being pulled under. From November 8th to the 30th, Venus with be in its detriment in Scorpio. While you can use this as a powerful tool of seduction-- after all, Jupiter, Mercury, and the Sun are all working within your sign-- you mustn’t let yourself get carried away. On the upside, this combination of planets could be pointing to an intense (positive) sexual or romantic connection this fall, or, alternatively, immerse you in something new that feels nothing less than MAJOR. However, if your lusts (sexual or otherwise) begin a hostile takeover of your brain, use outlets such as some vigorous exercise and meditation to steady your hand. Venus in Scorpio is known for eroticizing that which need not be eroticized, obsessing over that which needs no second glances, and perceiving depth or magnitude where there isn’t any. And above all, remember the rules of consent while you temporarily don your rosy Venusian glasses. The New Moon in Scorpio is from November 16th to the 18th, making it a good time for preparations. Before you can begin some things, you need to peel back all the layers to tell what you’re really working with. On November 23rd, Pisces Neptune goes direct, switching the loopy romantic energy into something a bit more lyrical. For those born during the second week of November, the sextile with Capricorn Pluto encourages you to let the practical have a turn at the steering wheel. Anything that would benefit from emotional passion, creative inspiration, or other, similarly unmappable phenomenon should wait until you fulfill some of your responsibilities in a way that actually looks good on paper.
