Mood of the Moment The month starts with a Uranus-Pluto-square, the fourth out of seven – a good opportunity for taking stock. We experienced the last three in June and September 2012 and in May this year; the next two will be in April and December 2014, and the last one in March 2015. Due to this constellation, we find ourselves in the middle of a far-reaching and radically new process of transformation, which just about touches upon all areas of life. While for some this is more about inner transformation and/or developing entirely new views and insights, for others, especially Taurus, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, the changes are far more tangible. It is always about liberation and getting in touch with one’s inner strength (there’s a free article about this constellations in pdf available and can be ordered directly from Sitara). It merits contemplating one’s development over the last one and a half years. Everything that has been extraordinary or fundamentally new can definitely be credited to this influence. It will unfold further over the next one and a half years – in ways that are often surprising and touch upon the very foundations of our identity. Moreover, in November many mental processes come to a close, granting us in-depth and far-reaching insights and ensuring a gentle landing on the safe foundation of reality.
Aries: This Uranus-Pluto-square doesn’t ask so much for action as for administering order, creating clarity and taking responsibility for yourself. The above mainly affects relationships and it may be beneficial to live your own truth. However, this does not imply that others are going to agree to your views, as their truth may differ from yours. It is about respecting one’s own truth as much as the others’ and then seeking for a common truth.
Taurus: Neptune and Saturn bestow their soothing vibes and the mind may help through learning, understanding and exchanging thoughts. Communication may clarify many things, but it may take until January to reap long-term benefits. Against this background, Uranus and Pluto are once again inclined to shake the very foundations, professionally as well as with regard to family and close friends. Don’t be satisfied with comfortable solutions that are not in line with your deepest truth. Question radically whatever is not consistent and search for a good path.
Gemini: Insights and realizations you gain now are going to carry you for at least one year. Moreover, just continue to fathom things, instead of skipping over them lightly. From the 10th onwards, the transformation that started in October is successively coming to a close, accompanied by deep relaxation, expansion and the clarification of important questions. Simultaneously, there’s the beginning of a new phase that lends greater stability to your relationships and opens up realistic perspectives for the future.
Cancer: Strength, courage and confidence are growing. During the next four months, the integration of steps taken since July is coming to pass. So far, your outer radius of action has expanded, now inner expansion and deepening follow. You will continue to be active, but from now the emphasis is on cognitive and emotional developments. Ultimately, this is about finding meaning: You re-orient yourself mentally for the next twelve years which gives you the conviction that you are leading a truly meaningful life.
Leo: The first half of the month promises a balance between the poles of magnitude, pleasure and meaning on the one hand, and simplicity, modesty and reason on the other. You connect to your resources by becoming active. From the second half of November onwards, matters will feel more chaotic and you may lose general overview and sense of orientation. While time-tested answers fail to work now, it helps to change perspective: adopt a bird’s eye view and do things you have never done, or at least not in the same way.
Virgo: Mars passing through Virgo grants energy and self-assertion. This month, you not only do what you want, but you deploy your energy very skillfully to reach your goals. Realism couples up perfectly with both inspiration and intuition. Your ideas are well grounded; you are courageous and have every reason for being confident. Moreover, you always manage to remain humane and clear. You know that arrogance will only alienate you from what your heart truly desires.
Libra: Uranus and Pluto won’t let you off the hook; their turbulence can be felt all throughout the month. At the same time, the month of November is framed by many supportive forces. On the one hand you are once again prompted to stand by your deepest truth and also consider unusual steps, on the other hand there is no need to rush; take your time, even though it may seem as if you have to act immediately. You are now entering a process of clarification and stabilization, which will come to a close by the end of January.
Scorpio: During the first half of the month, Uranus once again prompts you to let go of familiar behavior- and thought patterns, even though this may be unsettling. Further development is only possible if you deal with certain affairs in a different manner. In particular regarding your relationships, by mid- November a fundamental change is due. But most planetary powers accompany you in a friendly way and help you to let go of what is not good for you anyhow. This healing process will come to a close by the end of February.
Sagittarius: Lots of positive energy is coming your way now, mainly manifesting itself in the shape of inner abundance, which you may play out creatively and innovatively. During the last week of November, however, there may be confusion mainly stemming from excessive expectations or wishful thinking. Remain optimistic, but don’t waste your energy hoping for a miracle. Actually, you don’t need miracles, because deep down you know that life as such is intrinsically miraculous.
Capricorn: The Uranus-Pluto-square is accompanied by a strong Venus sway. Hence, changes are required – especially in the field of relationships. Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Chiron and Neptune are your support. With them you find it relatively easy to communicate, to take realistic steps, to feel compassion and surrender yourself to a greater power, instead of merely counting on your own deliberations. Still these are unsettling times, in terms of your inner as well as your outer life. Feel them, confront them, but don’t get entangled.
Aquarius: Pluto radically questions all innovations you’ve induced since mid-2012. This doesn’t mean that they have been wrong, but they can still be improved. Especially everything to do with relationships and/or creativity is put to the test. To begin with, ask yourself in which area you’re not yet living up to your full potential and where it is that you haven’t found your actual strength yet. No need to become active right away. New steps can be planned once it is clear what is still missing.
Pisces: Now everything is turning in the right direction. No matter what the results of those processes coming to a close may be, rest assured that they are a gift of grace. This month shows you how a lack in communications can transform into deeper understanding. In particular, this is about recognizing the value inherent to precision, honesty and depth for truly meeting one another, even more so when the Sun moves into Sagittarius. Try to be frank and candid, this helps to clear or untangle your own perception as well.
