November, 2011

The Sun moves through tropical Scorpio from October 23 to November 22. Ruled by fiery Mars and co-ruled by the deep and mysterious Pluto we find that Scorpio natives are naturally inclined towards leadership roles and power positions. It’s never half way, but all the way, or no way with Scorpio. There are some interesting totems associated with this sign, the first being the serpent, or scorpion. This one says, “sting me, I sting you back”. Revenge, dominance, control, manipulation, violence, chaos and death is their game if unindividuated. The phoenix is probably the best known symbol of Scorpio and it implies the awesome regenerative and healing power that many Scorpios possess. Out the ashes a new life form is created. Where many give up, generally Scorpio is just getting warmed up. Researchers, scientists, doctors and surgeons and others that may literally transform your life come under the heading of this sign.

The eagle is the next symbol of Scorpio and it represents the purity and spiritual heights that can be attained, for no other flies as close to the sun as does this regal bird. The eagle type Scorpios are more likely to be the ones that work quietly behind the scenes ensconced deeply into their studies with no time for pomp, strut and ceremony.
We might ponder as to why these folks are so intense and intent on all that they do in the light or darkness. In ancient times the sun’s passage through this sector of the sky signalled its death, which would be resurrected in the early springtime once again. The cycle of growth has seemingly stopped and death and decay set into place refurbishing the soil for the next round of life’s activities. Beyond anything and everything that we know, the life force is the most powerful phenomena and all of life will struggle valiantly to the very last breath in order to keep it. Scorpio types are born into this energy and once focused and directed their power of concentration amalgamated with their dynamic will power produces some of the most remarkable and memorable people on the planet for good or bad. Being a fixed water sign it is often difficult for Scorpios to effect change in their own lives. Learning to surrender to the will of God and acquiescing to the universal plan that we have crafted for ourselves in our previous incarnations is the healing path for all those that suffer. Scorpio is an old soul and is definitely on its way home after its lengthily earthly sojourns.

Aries Mars forms a grand triangle with Jupiter and Pluto mid month and with Mars moving through Virgo you will be very busy. You’re able to put it all together as you organize and plan for your future by a steady application of your willpower.

Taurus The full moon on November 10 takes place in your sign bringing important revelations. The moon travels through the nakshatra (star group) named Bharani and its shakti (power) is to take things away. Go with the flow and let go of whatever.

Gemini Ever curious, eternally restless and constantly seeking what is to be known and discovered compels the Gemini natives like the wind as they scatter hither and yon seeking their treasures of the intellect. Romance beckons thee as a does contrastment and possible controversy.

Cancer The full moon on November 10 will help illuminate your understanding as to where you stand with others, such as a sweetheart, friend or work associate. Matters related to home and family intensify which may not be negative. A busy autumn is predicted.

Leo Career and home activities increase dynamically. You must find the balance and live within it. Earning potential increases, but what does it mean, freedom or drudgery? A sacrifice of sorts could be the remedy. Very good communication opportunities present themselves in early November.

Virgo Mars visits Virgo in the last three weeks of November. You will be busy, productive and constructive. Keep in mind the down side of Mars energy is accidents and injuries if we overstep our abilities or let frustration get the best of us.

Libra Saturn continues his sojourn through your sign as he helps you to polish and refine what you’re all about. It is marriage or divorce time as we marry that which we love and divorce away from what is no longer worthy. It’s all good.

Scorpio The full moon on November 10 is important as it will bring up what is needed most. The moon travels through Bharani the nakshatra (star group) that has the power to take things away. It is a time of intense internal perusal.

Sagittarius Mercury and Venus combine in your sign throughout most of the month, enhancing life in many ways. Romantic and intellectual activities keep you on the move, happily so. The solar eclipse on November 24 in Sagittarius will herald a series of important changes.

Capricorn Mars and Jupiter cast fine energy into your sign indicating a powerful and active time in which you can truly accomplish all that you wish. Be careful what you wish for though, as it could take too much of your time and energy.

Aquarius The full moon on November 10 illuminates your solar houses ruling career, family and real estate. Speaking of real estate your inner-state of consciousness may need some refreshing and now is the time to do so. Life amps up and all kinds of people pop up.

Pisces Mars moves through your opposite sign Virgo prompting action and reaction. Travel and romance houses are hot as well. Careers sector gets a boost and you should be competitive. Intellectual stimulation and a hunger to learn and discover propel you along.
