Week of November 5 – November 11

Here's a peek at what's going on this week with the planets. This is based on Standard East Coast time (EST)

For more information go to "This Week's Planets" on my website where weekly planets are posted before the end of the weekend.

Once again, this is a very slow week with five planets in the fixed, water-sign Scorpio, as well as Saturn in the fixed, fire-sign Leo, and Neptune in the fixed, air-sign Aquarius. This gives us seven planets in fixed signs. The only earth sign this week is with the Taurus Moon on the 11/5 - 11/6.

If you've been feeling as if life has been boring and stagnant for the past few weeks, it's because of all the fixed planets. But don't be fooled, many things are going on below the surface and will boil up when activated. Scorpio is the sign of hidden power, things are intensely brewing, and all it takes is one planet to come along and activate all that subconscious power, such as the Full Beaver (Mourning) Moon in Taurus on 11/5.

11/5 FULL MOON 12 TAURUS 58 - 7:58 AM EST

The Moon in Taurus opposite Scorpio may act like a charge setting off the energy that's been quietly standing by. When the bull gets riled, he charges quickly, and once he's made his lunge, his rage is over instantly. Anyone with planets in fixed signs will feel the push/pull. Scorpio is often compared to the eruption of a volcano, seething quietly then suddenly erupting. The opposite of Scorpio, Taurus the Bull, is just as deadly when provoked.

The Moon is busy forming aspects with five planets. The most difficult aspect is the t-square, formed by an opposition to the Sun, Venus, and Mercury, and at the same time with a square to Neptune. This kicks off the aspects between Sun and Venus with Neptune later in the week.

There will be tension in relationships and finances all week. The healing profession and the military as a whole will be challenged by this moon. Today the Saddam verdict is supposed to be out; precautions are already being set in place for repercussions through the week.

11/6 VENUS 17 SCORPIO SQUARE NEPTUNE 17 AQUARIUS 7:24 PM EST

The effects of this aspect will be seen in news about the upcoming election in the USA. We've already seen a consequence of this aspect with the evangelical minister scandal, which is already affecting the political scene. Neptune creates lies and deceit when in bad condition. The square from Venus causes friction in any type of relationship, personal or public. This brings unrealistic promises that lead to disappointment. Relationships based on subterfuge will be shaken out. Now is not the time to let fantasy lead you astray. Expectations are not based on reality.

11/7 MERCURY 17 SCORPIO CONJUNCT VENUS 17 SCORPIO 11:51 AM EST

This is a day for communication; the wires will be buzzing, and gossip, slander, or scandals about others will be let loose. There is a tendency to manipulate when planets are in Scorpio, so pay attention to what people say, and don't react. This also applies to any media and government spin. Basically, this transit involves thoughts and feelings. Feelings are vulnerable because of Scorpio, and people affected by Mercury may try to take advantage of sensitivity. Normally, Mercury conjunct Venus is a mellow aspect, but the fixed t-square with the emphasis of Scorpio makes this aspect stronger than usual.

You may have thoughts about loved ones, or art and beauty; or you may wish to spend time in a museum, or on an artistic endeavor. Art will be more of a communicative nature. This is a good day for those in the graphic or media arts.

This is also a day to think about finances. Venus rules money, watch the markets fluctuate.

With the Scorpio emphasis, conversations and communications will not be superficial; there will be a desperate quality to ideas and words. There will also be powerful words about changes. This may have a slight affect on the monetary system. Today is election Tuesday in the US; there will be a last minute effort to manipulate with words.

11/8 MERCURY17 SCORPIO SQUARE NEPTUNE 17 AQUARIUS 3:24 AM EST

Uncertainty, confusion, and disillusionment rule the day. Talk will be about reality and the illusions that we must give up. Not all information will be forthcoming. Neptune like secrets, and will try to keep things undercover. Don't believe everything you hear today.

11/8 MARS 10 SCORPIO 51 TRINE URANUS 10 PISCES 11:23 AM EST

This is a powerful transit for activity. Mars gives us our drive, and when it is in Scorpio, we seem to have an endless reservoir of energy. Uranus adds a twist of the unusual, and bursts of energy. This is a transit of breakthroughs. People involved in research and investigation will have a chance to make great strides. It's a day of new action and originality. This day definitely clears out the cobwebs. If you want a day to plan on getting things done in a hurry, today is the day

11/8 TRANSIT OF MERCURY 16 SCORPIO 20 - 4:31 PM EST

This is the conjunction of the Sun and Mercury, and the midpoint of the Mercury retrograde. Because it is across the face of the Sun, it is stronger than usual. Now is a good time to think about the steps to success. Thoughts will be centered on self, and ideas will be more expressive and creative. This is a good time for speeches, commerce, paperwork, and local travel. As always, in a Mercury retro, plan this around some type of review, or redo.

11/9 SUN 17 SCORPIO SQUARE NEPTUNE 17 AQUARIUS 10:00 AM EST

This is a low energy transit. Neptune puts a damper on the fire and enthusiasm of the Sun. Don't make serious plans, or work on long-range plans. Neptune frustrates the search for success ruled by the Sun. Neptune also gives a sensitivity and awareness of disappointments. If you’re experiencing feelings of inadequacy or any feelings that belittle you, change your focus. Don't try to deal with the challenging aspects of life today if you don't have to.
