Saturn (discipline and hard work) and Uranus (innovation and change) are dancing in the sky right now – a harmonious combination that brings inspiration and an ability to think outside the box while being able to remain organized and focused. This can help us in all kinds of ways, from expanding a spiritual practice to creating a new business venture. It is especially useful for writers as it opens the doorway to multidimensional thought. Though this dynamic peaks on the 11th of November, its influence is strongest this week.
We have two planets changing direction this week, signifying a change in focus and a different quality of energy. Mercury moved into Sagittarius on the 5th, lifting us out of its former intensity in Scorpio into the more expanded vision of Sagittarius. Then Venus enters Scorpio on the 7th and facilitates our passage into the dark Underworld of our passions and deepest fears and desires. In Scorpio, Venus creates an important time to confront any issues in our relationships that may be creating problems. This process isn’t easy, but is better entered willingly than by force.
The 9th brings a pleasant day which helps to empower and inspire us, although an awkward Mars aspect may weaken our resolve and make it difficult to achieve anything meaningful. (Sun sextile Pluto, Mars quincunx Neptune)
Between the 10th and the 13th we have a bit of rough astrological weather. On the 10th communication may be somewhat disconnected for just a day or so, and you may find yourself at odds on the 11th, wondering which path to take. On the 13th we FEEL lucky and perhaps we are lucky that day, but we are also insecure and somewhat foggy. If a golden opportunity presents itself take it – but be sure before doing so that it’s really as it appears. (Mercury inconjunct Jupiter, Sun square North Node, Venus conjunct Jupiter, Mercury square Neptune.)
There are a lot of competing energies this week and you may find it more difficult than usual to find your center. But finding our center is just what we need to do at times like this, so utilizing tools of meditation, yoga, walks in the woods – whatever helps you to find your equilibrium – will be quite helpful!
