Astro-Energy Forecast for November 2019
The majority of November sees us transfixed by the energy of Scorpio, but, as the month progresses, the Sun will move into the sign of Sagittarius. This brings a fresh new wave of inspiration, excitement and zest for life.
Current lunar cycle: Scorpio
Governed by Pluto, the god of the underworld, Scorpio is linked with the depths of the subconscious and anything otherworldly. During Scorpio season, energies tend to feel heavy. Forgotten haunts, deep-seated traumas and other stuck, stale energies that are ready to move may come to the surface to be released.
The sign of death and rebirth, Scorpio brings about radical transformation. While transitions of such a nature aren’t easy to go through, any challenge, trial or tribulation coming your way during Scorpio season will help reveal aspects of your true self. This can bring you closer into alignment, should you choose to confront the lesson and integrate the learning.
With Pluto as the ruler, Scorpio season has a very otherworldly or beyond the surface feel to it. One’s subconscious may be very active so look and listen out for messages, clues or subtle whispers from your subconscious.
The new Moon in Scorpio on the 27th of October brought about plenty of energy. This was amplified by the Sun opposing Uranus, the planet of change. This placement during the time of Scorpio season, especially at the time of the New Moon, would’ve amplified the energy, resulting in forms of drastic change. This could mean new attitudes, new ways of looking at things, new thought patterns, an ability to shift something really quickly or the ability to shed and let go of old and unnecessary attachments.
Key dates for November
11th November 2019
In numerology, 11 is a highly auspicious number. It can signify many things to many people; from blessings of good luck and fortune to communication with angels and guides, or even receiving messages from beyond. Seeing the number code 11 11 out in the wild is always a sign that you’re on the right track.
If you entertain such theories, then the month of November, particularly the Monday the 11th, can have a profound impact on your psychic skills, your ability to communicate with angels and guides, and your connection to your intuition.
12th November Full Moon in Taurus
As the energy of the moon grows over the month, so too does the energy of intentions set at the New Moon. Whatever you have actively called during the Scorpio New Moon of October in will reach its peak, and any energy that has been gathering will reach fruition.
Taurus is often associated with stubbornness and hard work, but as it is ruled by the planet of Venus, a more contemporary approach is that of sensuality. Taurus can signify luxury, tactile fabrics, lavish living, and so on. This may be a time to indulge a bit, splurge on splendour and do something for you.
The 20th of November 2019 Mercury goes direct
Completing his final retrograde for 2019, Mercury, the planet of strategy and communication, stations direct and resumes his ordinary course through the cosmos.
After a period of pausing, quietening and listening to the wisdom that Mercury has to share, be sure to integrate any lessons or new insights that may have developed at this time. Any events, happenings, occurrences or new thoughts, attitudes or similar that may have come to the surface, now have time to settle.
22nd November Sun into Sagittarius
After the intensity of Scorpio season, the Sun will move into the light and bright sign of Sagittarius. This energy can feel like a breath of fresh air and a spark of excitement after the intense,y commanding energy of Scorpio.
A lively, vibrant and bold fire sign, Sagittarius, the archer, in the full spotlight of the Sun, asks us to open our hearts, minds and souls to all of the opportunities that life has in store. Live loud and proud, say ‘yes’ to invitations, celebrate the small things in life and in general, turn up the volume.
Any events, happenings, occurrences or new thoughts, attitudes or similar that may have arisen during the retrograde now have time to settle. Any new revelations relating to ravel, communication or technology now have breathing room to integrate.
The sign of Sagittarius is fun-loving, enjoys learning and is full of joie de vivre. Pay attention to what sets your soul alight, and seek out more of that. Travel is also key for the sign of Sagittarius, so note any physical changes in location or vacations or even new thoughts that may have come from your mind travelling in new directions.
Finally, Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of blessings. While in Sagittarius season, auspicious events, good fortune or luck may cross your path.
The 26th of November 2019 New Moon in Sagittarius
A New Moon in the sign of Sagittarius on the 26th of November adds to the already exciting vibes of Sagittarius season.
This New Moon kicks off one of the final lunar cycles for the year, and with the Sun and Moon both in Sagittarius, it is an excellent time for intention setting and even reflection.
The time of the New Moon is great for setting intentions and for consciously bringing in new energy to set the December up for success. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of blessings and expansion, so make sure you think big and dream even bigger.
Sagittarius is traditionally associated with travel, philosophy and education, so setting intentions around changing attitudes, new perspectives and even journeys (literal and figurative ones) may be useful.
Before the year is out, we’ll be met with the last round of eclipses for 2019. Eclipses can be a wild ride so hold onto your hats and make sure your New Moon intentions will set the last month of the year off on a good note.
