WOW! Winter has arrived here in central N.C.and I don’t mind one bit. I enjoy the cooler temps. But I admit to not enjoying them quite the same way I once did. Come to think of it, I don’t enjoy much of anything the way I once did. All part of getting older I suppose.
There are two cosmic events that take the spotlight this week. The first one is the Venus-Jupiter conjunction in the early morningMonday. The second one is the New Moon on Saturday, November 18, 2017. In between, there are other aspects to talk about.
The Sun is still in Scorpio which means our feelings can be intense and we feel the need to go deep to find the answers. We want to know what makes people tick or makes things the way they are. Passions are high and all that it taboo or hidden is at risk of being discovered under this influence.
Mercury in Sagittarius is taking out thoughts to learn about a wide range of subjects. They will be more optimistic and what is fair and unfair matters to us. Mercury’s powers of persuasion are powerful now too. This is going to be a long transit for Mercury due to his retrograde on December 3. Please keep in mind that we will feel the effects at least one week prior when Mercury enters his shadow.
Mars is currently touring or transiting Libra. This means we are able to turn up the charm to achieve our goals and get what we want. If you recall from when the Sun was in Libra, we tend to view things from all sides. Mars in Libra is no different. Balance is key to anything in Libra and under this influence, even Mars doesn’t want to use force or make the other guy feel bad.
Venus us transiting Scorpio. Being flirty in our relationships doesn’t cut it right now. We tend to want more of a deep connection both mentally and physically now. This is about as “anything goes” as we can get in our relationships.
Monday, The Venus-Jupiter is likely to be good news for our relationships, enhance our creativity, generosity, and bring us some great fun and social happiness. Enjoy the company of friends old and new. However, be careful not to overspend during this transit. Venus loves beautiful things and she can get carried away with spending if we are not careful.
Monday we also have Mercury and Neptune at a 90-degree square aspect to each other. This is a difficult aspect that causes the planets involved to not be very o-0perative with each other. In this case, it is our communications that are strained, thanks to the planet of communications, Mercury. Our ability to concentrate might see some ill effects of this square aspect. AS with a Mercury retrograde, this is not the best time to sign contracts. Neptune’s influence causes confusion and tends to cause us to view things from a rather vague perspective. A big day for brain fog without a doubt.
Chiron aspects Venus Tuesday. This is sure to throw out some stumbling blocks in our relationships. It might be important to put more energy into seeing what you and the other person have in common, rather than focusing on the differences.
Next up is on Thursday and another aspect with Venus. I think she is definitely the shining star this week in more ways than just her conjunction with Jupiter. This time our friend Venus is in a difficult aspect with Saturn. Saturn is the stern authority figure in our cosmos. He is often emotionally unavailable or distant. This could mean some problems in romance and money. News of break-ups and romantic disappointments will not surprise me at all today.
This is not the only aspect on Thursday that involves Venus and Neptune. The good news is, this is not a difficult aspect. This one brings positive energy to art and creativity. This will make for some easy interactions for the most part and we are prone to see the best in others. Overall this will ease up some of the more difficult aspects from earlier in the week.
Saturday is the New Moon in Scorpio. This will help bring our attention to the best parts of Scorpio. Traits like Scorpios passion and resourcefulness. Or the way Scorpio loves to figure things out by going deep to get answers. This is a good time for looking at ourselves and how we bring these qualities into our lives in positive ways. One of the best ways to use this New Moon is to examine where we are feeling out of control. This can mean examining our debt, addictions, how we can end or come to terms with our emotional wounds.
That covers the most important aspects for the coming week. One more time I want to warn you to use caution in financial matters, especially spending. However, you might want to do some planning so you can get as much shopping as you can out of the way before Mercury goes into his storm period on November 28, 2017. Tha actual retrograde I not until December 3, 2017. The 3rd is also the sate of the next Full Moon. Are you ready? This could mean
There is a little consolation in the fact that Mercury will not actually be retrograde when Christmas arrives, but it will be in its storm period from December 22-28. For those most affected by Mercury retrogrades, this could mean we need to take some extra care when we attempt to communicate with others over the holidays.
Wishing everyone a fabulous week ahead. Be safe and don’t forget to smile. It costs nothing and can make a world of difference to those who see it and feel it.
