In the Stars November 7-14, 2021...shining light on the astrology of the week

The Sun continues to shine in the fixed water sign Scorpio, symbolizing emotional depths, secrets, finances linked with others, death, and transformation. Scorpio corresponds to the fixed season of autumn when days are growing shorter and trees are losing their leaves. With growing darkness and colder weather we feel like drawing inward. This is a month to withdraw and rest before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season arrives when the Sun is in enthusiastic, outgoing Sagittarius.

The coming work week begins strong with the Moon in industrious Capricorn. Midweek is contentious as Saturn squares Mars and Mercury, and the Moon ignites the Saturn-Uranus square. Tensions ease toward the weekend as the Moon enters compassionate Pisces.

Venus has just entered Capricorn tropically, where it will stay for the next four months until March 6, 2022. This is due to a retrograde period December 20 - January 28. Venus in this Saturn-ruled earth sign invites us to get our finances in order, spend conservatively, and save more (see Ten Things to Do With Venus in Capricorn at the end of this blog).

We are on the cusp of eclipse season. A partial Lunar Eclipse occurs on November 19, and a total Solar Eclipse on December 3. Eclipses can trigger powerful events, either positive or difficult. Ongoing we have the tense energy of the Eris-Pluto square, and the Saturn-Uranus square which will reach its third exact aspect December 24th. We live in a time of rapid change and amazing possibilities. The movement of the planets invites us into a dynamic engagement with opportunity and change.

The Moon is Void of Course most of the day Sunday from 5:43 a.m. through 5:03 p.m. PDT, inviting us to take the day off and go on a hike or outdoor adventure. The Moon moves into Capricorn at 5:03 p.m. PDT. A Moon-Venus conjunction and a benefic Moon-Mercury sextile foster easy conversation and connection.

The hard-working, driven Capricorn Moon invites us into an industrious work week on Monday. The Moon makes a benefic trine to Uranus, taking us in new directions or bringing an element of surprise.

The Moon is void of course for a long period of time Tuesday, which could be an unsettling day. The Moon squares Eris and conjuncts Pluto. The best thing to do with this turbulent energy is start the day with strong exercise and hard work. Meetings are unlikely to be productive and deliver results, so schedule those for Wednesday or Friday. When the Moon is void, it is best to focus on insignificant tasks. You can shake off concerns in the evening when the Moon moves into Aquarius at 7:02 p.m. PDT.
