Get ready for a jam-packed week! Beginning on Sunday, November 6, Mercury in Scorpio opposes the North Node in Taurus and conjuncts the South Node in Scorpio, there could be an opportunity to radically change communication skills, the tone of the conversation, and mental processing. If the cosmic messenger is attuned to the karmic South Node, then there is a greater likelihood to fall into old communicative habits that aren’t productive or positive. However, if the cosmic messenger is willing to break free, then the North Node can act as a catalyst for such an opportunity.
Then Venus in Scorpio will square Saturn in Aquarius the following day, creating tension between the dark love goddess and the domicile master malefic. The square is a fixed aspect, suggesting incredible stubbornness, determination, and strength between the two planets. Given that this transit is initially stressful, it might be challenging to maintain authority over decisions regarding love, beauty, and money. There could be a more restrictive feeling or karmic backlash associated with feeling certain about a commitment. Couples or partners may feel the stress of the square the most since this could propose unusual disagreements. Singles may find that it is harder to assume authority over the authenticity of wanting a raw, vulnerable connection. Although it might be an initially challenging transit, there could be an opportunity to feel empowered by owning the desire to commit to wanting something unusual or unique.
By Tuesday, November 8, there will be a full moon total lunar eclipse in Taurus and the sun in Scorpio will sextile Ceres in Virgo. Mercury will also conjunct the sun in Scorpio, sextile Ceres in Virgo, and oppose Uranus retrograde in Taurus.

As the sun sextiles Ceres, there is a mutual harmony between the mysterious ego and the nurturing asteroid. It might be time to work on or prioritize self-care, especially if mental health issues are getting to be too much. Since Ceres is ready to form healthier habits and routines, the sun’s psychological presence could assist with finding an intuitive way to uphold one’s needs. Part of this would be letting go of any issues surrounding jealousy, obsession, and control.
The cosmic messenger will then be put through quite a whiplash! The solar conjunction suggests that the ego and mind are in alignment, which is perfect for working with the asteroid goddess, Ceres. Between the conjunction and sextile, this is the perfect time to stubbornly commit to adapting healthier mental and communication habits. Given the opposition to the regressing wild child, some ideas or conversations may go in an entirely different direction than anticipated. But if healthy habits are in place, then it might be easier working with upswings or unpredictability that comes with the opposition to Uranus retrograde.
Shortly after, Uranus retrograde in Taurus will oppose the sun in Scorpio and trine Ceres in Virgo. Although change is not readily welcomed in a fixed opposition, it might be necessary to have greater self-awareness and self-love. It’s time to break free from anything that no longer serves you, especially if you are ready to step into the unknown in search of cultivating greater comfort and stability.
On Thursday, November 10, Mercury in Scorpio will square Saturn in Aquarius while Venus in Scorpio trines Neptune retrograde in Pisces. As the square between the cosmic messenger and the domicile master malefic comes together, there might be greater tension in communication. Trying to have the upper hand by withholding information or sneakily trying to draw out secrets will not pan over well. Although it might be tempting to lead the conversation and have an authoritative voice, listen to what others say. Given that this is occurring after the U.S. elections, there might be a catch-22 that comes out with a politician, swing state, or how a question was phrased on the ballot. The best one can do during the square is to assume responsibility for whatever was said or unsaid. Meanwhile, the Venusian trine to the seemingly clearer regressing Neptune is deep, intuitive, and moody. Neptune retrograde may unveil something associated with love, money, or aesthetics. It might be best to pay attention to your dreams or gut feelings during this trine, especially if you are considering an arrangement.
A day later, the sun will then square Saturn in Aquarius while Venus in Scorpio trines Pallas in Cancer. The solar-Saturnian square might feel internally intensified as we struggle to lean into the responsibility of being authentic, unique, and revolutionary. But doing so would require vulnerability, which may be challenging during secretive Scorpio season. The best way to work with this square is by releasing any inhibition (internal or external) that delays your ability to assume authority over your secret self. As the square unfolds, the watery trine is the perfect time to devise an intuitive plan of action to move forward with love, money, and beauty. Pallas can instinctively lead the way when there is an emotional investment at stake. This beautiful trine is the perfect time for couples to come together in mutual agreement or for singles to launch their dating plans. It could even be perfect for working through creative opportunities such as decorating or styling something. Money might be tricky, but putting aside assets or property in a secret account is likely the best course of action.
At the end of the week, Mercury in Scorpio will trine Neptune retrograde in Pisces, creating watery harmony between the cosmic messenger and the regressing nebulous. If you are waiting for information to materialize or an opportunity to dig deeper into your intuition, then this watery trine is the perfect time to synthesize information. Neptune retrograde is surprisingly discerning, which allows the investigative Mercury to go deeper than before while feeling certain about seeking the truth. Given the over-arching empathy of this transit, something may come out in a moment of confidence or comment could pull several omens together. Look beyond the mundane for your answers during this magical trine.
