Your Weekly Astrology Forecast for November 4–11, 2018
The Sun continues to shine in Scorpio, drawing us deeply inward. This week’s New Moon in Scorpio draws us even deeper inward to ponder serious matters of concern. Plant new seeds of thought and intention at this New Moon. There is opportunity to heal psychological wounds as well as to get financial matters and estates in better order. Jupiter shifts into Sagittarius tropically on Thursday for a one-year stay in its ruling sign, where it will be happy and well-functioning. Jupiter in Sagittarius will be a joyful, exuberant shift, enabling us to expand our belief systems and knowledge through travel, study and adventure over the next year.
Expect Surprises Thanks to Mixed Energy Early in the Week
After you push through the demands of a Moon-Saturn square early on Sunday, you can take it easy in the light of a lovely Libra Moon. Daylight Savings time ends at 2:00am on Sunday, giving us an extra hour in this day. Roll back your clocks one hour (unless you live in one of those places that never adjusts its time). This is a good day to curl up with a good book in the afternoon and share an elegant dinner with loved ones.
Monday is mixed. We feel the emotional challenge of a Moon-Pluto square, energized by a Moon-Mars trine, and inspired by a Sun-Neptune trine. Keep your mind on lofty ideals and push toward a great start on your goals for the workweek ahead.
Tuesday is election day, and it’s sure to be full of tension and surprising results. Retrograde Uranus backs into Aries for a last dance in this cardinal fire sign through March 6, 2019. Uranus opposes the Moon and squares the Nodal axis, forming a tight Grand Cross in fixed signs. This is a tense fixed energy pattern, and with Uranus in the mix, there may be stunning, unexpected events. Election-night results are likely to be quite interesting. A Moon-Saturn sextile provides a practical, grounded influence. The Moon is dark, symbolizing a seed-planting time for growth in new directions.
Prepare for the New Moon in Scorpio Midweek
On Wednesday, a New Moon in deep-feeling Scorpio affords us the opportunity to set new intentions around finances, and to clear emotional baggage. A Pluto-Vesta conjunction helps us sharpen our focus and let go of what no longer serves us. An edgy aspect between Jupiter and Uranus requires extra effort to take advantage of creative opportunities.
Jupiter arrives in its ruling sign of Sagittarius Thursday morning, where it will stay for the next year. Jupiter expands what it touches, and we will feel more open and trusting. Jupiter in Sagittarius will encourage us to explore, travel, write, publish and open our minds to philosophy, belief systems and higher wisdom. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 10:59am PST, after a void Moon morning. Jupiter and the Moon are conjunct throughout the afternoon, further amplifying the joy and possibilities. Optimism abounds on this magical day.
The Weekend Brings Expansive Energy for Adventure and Productivity
The big blue sky is the limit on exuberant, expansive influences on Friday. With the optimism of the Sag Moon and the vibrancy of a Mars-Venus trine, we have the power to attract exactly what we want. A blind spot in this otherwise magnificent day is a Moon-Neptune square that may cloud our vision and compromise our ability to see reality.
Set out for an adventure on this sunny Saturday. The Moon makes opportune sextiles to Mars and Venus, warming our hearts and filling us with passion and enthusiasm. The freedom-loving Sag Moon trines independent Uranus, so we will want to take some space for ourselves. We may want to do something different from usual, and on our own. There are also some testy aspects in this mixed day. An autumn hike or bike ride would be satisfying and invigorating.
Sunday’s stage is set for serious work and accomplishment. The Capricorn Moon conjuncts Saturn on Sunday morning, guiding us toward our responsibilities. Neptune makes a benefic sextile to the Saturn-Moon conjunction, inspiring us to work toward our goals and intentions. The Scorpio Sun makes a benefic sextile to Pluto, giving the power and desire to be productive. This is not at all a lazy Sunday. Make the most of this strong and capable energy.
