The cosmic tune is changing this week! Starting on Sunday, November 13, Venus in Scorpio will sextile Pluto in Capricorn, suggesting harmony between the exiled love goddess and the CEO of the underworld. Together, this is an intense meeting in the cosmos! Venus is already digging deeper than ever before to uncover the truth in love, relationships, money, and even beauty. Given that Venus is highly introspective and investigative, it doesn’t take much to push the love goddess over the edge. So, Pluto’s tiny but mighty influence can make matters incredibly intense and dire! Although this sextile could be undeniably sexy and mysterious, it might also bring some hidden matters to light that could influence the trajectory of commitments.
A day later, Mercury in Scorpio will trine Pallas in Cancer, Venus in Scorpio will square Vesta in Aquarius, Mercury in Scorpio will sextile Pluto in Capricorn, and the sun in Scorpio will trine Neptune retrograde in Pisces. Mercury trine Pallas is a harmonious arrangement since it alludes to the asteroid assisting the cosmic messenger with taking the lead with an intuitive cue or calling. Since Mercury also sextiles Pluto, there is an opportunity to dive into hidden matters, mysteries, and secrets. Pluto might bring something to light that can give the cosmic messenger a more enlightened understanding of a conversation or idea. However, the Venus-Vesta square may pose underlying tension since the love goddess may have a fixed idea about a commitment or opportunity that doesn’t account for some unique aspects. Although the square can be initially stressful, we may come to love the unconventional or atypical characteristics in an arrangement or partnership. Finally, the harmonious trine between the sun and Neptune retrograde could illuminate the fantastical lens we may have when viewing ourselves. Given that the trine is gentle, it may result in self-compassion for the self.
Shortly after, Venus in Scorpio will trine Jupiter retrograde in Pisces. As the peaceful trine comes together, the minor and major benefic can finally embrace! Although the love goddess is detriment and the regressing teacher planet is domicile, this trine can lead to something sweet. Now may not be the time to take the plunge with expanding upon a romantic relationship, a financial agreement, or an aesthetically-focused opportunity. Instead of moving forward, it might be best to take a step back to intuitively reflect on what you value the most at this time. As the introspective trine unfolds, you might be surprised by how you view power, control, transformation, honesty, and intimacy in your Venusian relationships. Luckily, if you want to make a change, it may start on a subconscious level since this watery transit will encourage you to seek spiritual alignment. Choose altruism in your journey of love, beauty, and money.
By Wednesday, November 16, there will be the last quarter moon in Leo, Venus will enter Sagittarius, Mercury in Scorpio will square Vesta in Aquarius, and Mercury in Scorpio will trine Jupiter retrograde in Pisces. During the last quarter moon in Leo, brush away anything that restricts your self-expression while confidently stepping into the spotlight. The fiery lunation will be complemented by Venus’s ingress into the sign of the Archer, suggesting that love, money, and beauty will extend to new horizons. Meanwhile, there might be an underlying disagreement with authentically presenting yourself and your ideas in conversation during the Mercury-Vesta square. Luckily, the trine between Mercury and Jupiter retrograde can smooth over any communicative issues by assessing before acting and airing on the side of a more positive attitude.
Afterward, Mercury will enter Sagittarius while the sun in Scorpio trines Pallas in Cancer. The cosmic messenger is officially in exile once in the sign of the Archer. However, the cosmic messenger might be more active in pursuing curiosities, ideas, and conversations. Plus, we can always lean into the positive appraisal of the transit! Meanwhile, the sun-Pallas trine might be the perfect transit to feel more aligned with your strategic side and give 110% of yourself to your plans.
By the end of the week, the sun in Scorpio will sextile Pluto in Capricorn and Mars retrograde in Gemini will square Neptune retrograde in Pisces. As the sextile simmers, the CEO of the underworld may unearth something that we have been waiting or searching for. The catch is not becoming too hyper-focused on things about ourselves that are out of our range for control. A great piece of advice to keep in mind is that if you can’t fix something about yourself during this sextile, then you should probably practice letting go as an act of radical transformation. Meanwhile, the mutable square may feel like mental madness as Mars retrograde’s divergency is stressed by Neptune retrograde’s discernment. The square may pose mental, communicative, and emotional duress if we aren’t careful to appraise it healthily. If you find yourself getting too caught up in nuances, then take a step back to look at the facts as well as the feelings. You can use your head and heart to logically yet intuitively navigate your next step.
