November seems to have somewhat of a lighter tone as many planets stationed direct back in October. As we near the end of 2021, the last two months begin to wrap up the ongoing retrogrades while also rushing both endings and beginnings with a final eclipse portal. The portal opens up more towards the end of November. November’s transits either have a jovial or serious mentality, a perfect combination that produces a work hard, play hard astrological attitude.
On November 4, there will be a New Moon in Scorpio. New Moons open a new chapter that has a six-month period to fully unfold. Although the moon is fall in Scorpio, this New Moon can still be considered an incredibly positive transit! After all, New Moons have renewed energy to embody, even in a detriment state. Under this New Moon, Scorpio and 8th House themes come to mind. Scorpio is a highly psychological sign that has many different states – Scorpion, Gray Lizard, Eagle, and Pheonix Rising. Each state is indicative of the plight of one’s transformation. It can involve intimacy, vulnerability, understanding personal power, harnessing power without stealing it, working through obsessions, and other karmic work. Under the New Moon, one could manifest reaching new heights – essentially working through the four phases of Scorpio over the next six months. It could be an ideal New Moon to set the goal to invest in financial collaborations or to prioritize your banking ventures, such as a 401K. The lunar energy is ideal for setting goals around intimacy, vulnerability, and working through commitment issues to ensure that you can love without fear. Consider lighting a black candle adorned in cinnamon oil or cinnamon dust. While the candle burns, release your fears and accept that it is time to dive into your shadow-side.

Then a day later, both Venus and Mercury ingress into new signs on November 5.
Venus leaves the Archer for the Sea-Goat, switching its call from Jupiter to Saturn. The tone has shifted from excitability to stoicism. As Saturn now has its grip on Venus, Venus’s beauty, money, and love have a more restrained tone. Venus in Capricorn tends to hold back so that it doesn’t lose its grip on the power of Venus.

And just as lovely Venus escapes the underworld, mental Mercury can’t help its curiosity. As Mercury ingresses into Scorpio, it also ingresses into the hidden and unknown. Mercury in Scorpio isn’t just curious – it’s investigative. Once there’s an itch, Mercury in Scorpio has an obsessive need to scratch. Mercury in Scorpio needs to know, to give credit to its remarkable intuition. Like a hound with a scent, Mercury in Scorpio also follows its trail. This is the perfect transit to dig deep.

The next major transit is the Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 19. This eclipse begins a new eclipse portal on the Taurus/Scorpio axis, which will last for another 1.5 years. But for now, let’s focus on this one! Full moons indicate the end of a six-month lunar cycle in a sign, and an eclipse can indicate a massive energy shift. Since this one is a partial eclipse, this indicates that the sun, moon, and Earth are not in a completely straight line, so part of the moon is slightly visible. This eclipse portal is especially influential as its the first eclipse to shift away from the Gemini/Sagittarius axis and into the Taurus/Scorpio axis. Its effects will be particularly influential as the lunar nodes move into Taurus/Scorpio next year. As a whole, the Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse indicates a shift away from a chapter of Taurus and 2nd House themes – value, finances, security, comfort, stability, property, and stubbornness. The strong yet durable energy of this eclipse portal may indicate a significant change in intrinsic and extrinsic value. It can be perfect for letting go of any issues around self-worth, or even stubbornly clinging to items that no longer enhance your life. Whether you like it or not, change will follow with the Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse.

A few days later, the sun enters Sagittarius. Sagittarius Season begins in a frenzy as Sagittarius is a mutable, fire sign. Since Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the sun will report to Jupiter throughout this zodiacal season. So, this could be a considerably happy-go-lucky season where expressionism and expansionism can flourish!
The final major transit is on November 24 when Mercury enters Sagittarius, its detriment placement. Mercury is exiled in Sagittarius, but there are still pros and cons to the transit. Mental Mercury leaves the depth of its mind for the expansion of another sign. Now that Mercury is in the sign of the Archer, it is officially reporting to Jupiter. The Jupiterian-influenced Mercury is political, philosophical, and opinionated. Mercury in Sagittarius has a booming voice – veracious and exuberant. It is a voice that demands to be heard. It is the perfect Mercurial transit for making a statement. It can also result in the announcement of some far-fetched ideologies and schemes, so be mindful of reading the reports of politics in mass media. Since Sagittarius is part of the 9th House which is concerned with law, it can be an ideal transit to bring current matters to justice. Mercury tends to have a demanding opinion in Sagittarius. It prefers dialogues and debates, particularly the debates. Mercury in Sagittarius values arguing as a way of expressing and learning. This Mercurial transit has an ever-expanding mind, so it tends to learn best through philosophical disagreements. However, Mercury in Sagittarius can become somewhat “end-all, be-all” in arguing. It is a Mercurial transit that can be overly aggressive to make its opinion or point known, which can be a lot. There could be more senseless arguments during this Mercurial transit. Luckily, the arguments can give way to an expanded ideology or improved opinion as Mercury in Sagittarius can learn from its mistakes. Since Sagittarius is associated with the 9th House concepts of higher education and travel, it may be worth getting into world politics, anthropology, sociology, and philosophy to expand your mind.
