Are you ready for this week? Beginning on Sunday, November 20, the asteroid goddess Vesta will enter Pisces while the sun in Scorpio trines Jupiter retrograde in Pisces. Asteroid Vesta rules over the sacred flame within each of us, virginity, pure sexual energy, the hearth, and home. Now in spiritual Pisces, Vesta is swimming in a magical, intuitive essence. Vesta in Pisces is undoubtedly compassionate, boundless, and wholly loving. It’s the perfect time to surrender to the beauty of absolution and devotion while creatively editing your sacred spaces. Meanwhile, the watery trine between the sun and Jupiter retrograde is rather positive. Although the sun in Scorpio can have an investigative, magnetic presence, Jupiter retrograde can soften this darkness with light optimism and unbeatable hope. However, Jupiter retrograde is introspective, so this may encourage the solar energy to withdraw just a tad.
Shortly after, Venus will conjunct Mercury in Sagittarius, bringing the cosmic messenger and the love goddess together in a fiery embrace! When these two planets collide, we may feel notably upfront about our desires in love, style, commitment, and money. Even though this can be a tactless transit given that Sagittarius is not a subtle sign known for holding back or dancing around the subject, it can be the perfect transit to lay it all out in the open. Go big or go home in these conversations by shooting your shot!
Then Sagittarius season will begin on November 22! Meanwhile, Ceres in Virgo squares Mars retrograde in Gemini while the sun in Sagittarius squares Vesta in Pisces. As the nurturing asteroid clashes with the regressing warring planet, there might be some mutable madness. Although both celestial bodies are in Mercury-ruled signs, there might be some challenges with bridging the gap in conversation or with mentally strategizing for success. Ceres is working hard to establish better boundaries, plans of action, a healthy relationship with sex, and ways to work with anger or frustration. But this might be thwarted by the divergent Mars retrograde which appears to be unsure, restless, and withdrawn. Instead of fighting this square, use it as a learning curve. Sometimes, we don’t know what we need to work on until we make a mistake. Meanwhile, the other square between the buoyant solar luminary and the spiritual asteroid may have us questioning our belief systems. Both celestial bodies are in Jupiter-ruled signs, so there is a shared philosophical essence. But the sun is forthright with preaching whereas the asteroid is reserved with assessing. Take a step back before sharing an overly candid opinion or perspective today.
Enjoy the jovial new moon in Sagittarius while Jupiter stationing direct in Pisces shortly after on Wednesday, November 23!
A day later, Mercury in Sagittarius will square Juno in Pisces, causing stress between the cosmic messenger and the asteroid of partnership. For better or for worse, Juno is preoccupied with finding a soulmate to love unconditionally. But this doesn’t fly with direct and honest Mercury who tells it like it is. Since this square could be a little harsh, it might also be a much-needed reality check in love to hold ourselves accountable in a romantic relationship. Don’t let your fantasies of everlasting love supersede a necessary conversation that could lay some issues or concerns to rest.
Throughout the weekend, Mercury in Sagittarius will trine Chiron retrograde in Aries, Ceres in Virgo will oppose Neptune retrograde in Pisces, Venus in Sagittarius will square Juno in Pisces, and Venus in Sagittarius will trine Chiron retrograde in Aries. The fiery trine between Mercury and Chiron retrograde could stimulate an honest introspection and conversation about the healing journey. However, it might also lead to some triggers if we are not careful since Mercury in Sagittarius is prone to foot-in-mouth syndrome. If something hurtful does arise, use this as an opportunity to address how you feel in a healthy or hold yourself accountable for whatever was said. Meanwhile, the opposition between Ceres and Neptune retrograde could be ideal for reflecting on what you may need to curtail or work on to cultivate healthier habits. As this is going on, there might be some tension with having fun in love versus being with “the One” during the Venus-Juno square. finally Venus trine Chiron retrograde could be the warm, soothing balm needed to move forward on a better foot with those that we love and care about.
