November 2019 – Process Information
By Misty Kuceris ©2019
There is so much happening during the month of November 2019 that you may feel overwhelmed and not know how to process all the information you receive. As the month starts, Mercury in Scorpio is already retrograde. It went retrograde on October 31, 2019 and will remain retrograde until November 20, 2019. At the same time, Mercury formed three triad sequences starting on October 14, 2019, that Mercury actually felt as if it was retrograde in mid-October. There are two other important astrological and astronomical occurrences during the month of November: Saturn forms its final sextile to Neptune retrograde and Mercury is eclipsed. This eclipse of Mercury is called a Mercury Transit. Information which you receive this month is going to be very important. However, you may not understand all this information at this time, especially with Mercury in Scorpio. So, it’s important that you don’t make any snap decisions, but rather pull back and process what you hear.
When Venus enters the sign of Sagittarius on November 1st, you want to focus on your spiritual growth. You want to expand the knowledge you have and determine how that information fits in with your ethical values. Because you want to search for the truth, you may decide to re-evaluate your relationships. You might be seeking a soulmate, one who fully understands you. Or, you may be seeking other individuals who are also truth-seekers.
As Venus forms a trine to Chiron retrograde on November 3rd, you may find that exploring the world around you can be very healing. You may even be willing to move beyond your comfort zone and take some risks that involve relationships or finances.
But as Venus moves into a quincunx to Uranus retrograde and Mars forms a square to Pluto on November 5th, you need to be more risk averse. With Venus forming the quincunx to Uranus retrograde new information is being revealed that isn’t quite what you expected. People in your life are reacting to you in different, perhaps unusual ways. The relationships which you thought were secure in your life are changing and you feel the security slipping. You may even run into people from your past that now make you question your belief systems.
With Mars forming the square to Pluto it’s important that you don’t let other people pressure you into doing things. You want to please them because Mars is in Libra, but the square indicates that you need to stand up for your belief system and not let other people control your life. It’s important that you maintain your personal boundaries so other people don’t pressure you into doing things you don’t want to do.
November 8th could be a very important day for you because Saturn forms a sextile to Neptune retrograde. This is the last time that Saturn forms this aspect in this triad sequence. The first time that it occurred was on January 31, 2019 when both planets were direct. The second time it occurred was on June 18, 2019 when Saturn was retrograde and Neptune was direct.
When Saturn forms a sextile to Neptune retrograde you find that you’re able to create realistic dreams. Saturn represents the creation of boundaries as well as the development of a good foundation. Neptune retrograde represents understanding your dreams and aspirations. When these two planets create a sextile, you’re able to find a way to set realistic boundaries while implementing your dreams in a realistic way. You’re also able to determine the best course of action so that other people don’t manipulate you.
This is a good day to think about any goals that you set in January 2019 and June 2019 to see if you still want to pursue them. This is also a good day to make any changes in the direction of your life so you can find that balance between your materials needs and spiritual desires. Once you find that balance, you’ll know the next steps to take.
On November 9th, Mercury retrograde forms a sextile to Pluto. This is the second time that Mercury forms a sextile to Pluto in this triad sequence. The first time this sextile occurred was on October 19, 2019 when Mercury was direct. The third time this sextile occurs is on December 3, 2019 when Mercury is once again direct.
When Mercury retrograde forms a sextile to Pluto, you feel as if you can focus on important matters in your life. You may have felt that way on October 19th when this aspect first occurred. Even though Mercury is retrograde at this time, you have a sense of the direction you want to take. You feel as if you can achieve quite a bit. Just wait until December 3rd when this aspect occurs for the third time to take any definitive action.
The transit of Mercury which occurs on November 11th is considered an eclipse of Mercury. The last time this occurred was on May 9, 2016. The next transit of Mercury won’t occur until November 13, 2032.
When there is a Mercury Transit, you feel an undercurrent of energy that you can’t describe. There is so much information being disseminated, yet you can’t make sense of it. This is especially true now because Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio and the Moon forms a conjunction to Uranus retrograde during this Transit.
Even though there is so much information being disseminated, people are keeping secrets. They aren’t revealing very much. The information is more like the sound of crickets rather than the voices of conversation. So for you to understand all this noise, listen to how people say things. Reflect on both their words and actions. Stay true to your values and don’t let fear drive you to any conclusions. You’ll know the truth soon enough: Perhaps even by the end of this month after Mercury goes direct.
On a more personal note, this can be a day of spiritual enlightenment. Mercury retrograde in Scorpio is a very powerful placement for introspection. If you take the time to be silent, you can actually reach into your subconscious mind and understand your true needs. You can even release any fears which prevent you from moving forward with your life. And, you may find a tremendous healing energy just surging through your being as you release old fears.
When the full Moon occurs on the following day, November 12th, you’ll understand just how important it is to release any fears that stand in your way. With the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus, you’re able to continue reaching into your subconscious mind so you can understand your true needs. With Saturn in a trine to the Moon and a sextile to the Sun, you realize that creating a strong foundation leads to more security in your life. And with Neptune in a trine to the Sun and a sextile to the Moon, you understand just how important your dreams and aspirations are.
As the day continues, Mars forms a sextile to Jupiter and you feel a greater understanding of how important it is that you move forward with your life and let go of past fears. Often we’re trained in astrology not to start something new during a Mercury retrograde or full Moon time period. But sometimes we have no choice and you need to take new action. Well, any new action that you take today will bring positive results because you’re releasing some old attitudes in order to implement the new action.
Mercury retrograde forms its second sextile to Saturn on November 13th and later in the day it forms its second trine to Neptune retrograde. On this day there are two triad sequences of Mercury occurring.
When Mercury retrograde forms the sextile to Saturn, this is the second time this sextile occurs in this triad sequence. The first time that it occurred was on October 14, 2019, when Mercury was direct. The last time this sextile occurs will be on November 30, 2019 when Mercury and Saturn are direct.
It’s easy to focus on situations when Mercury retrograde forms a sextile to Saturn. You’re able to remember important facts as well as events that have a bearing on what you’re doing today. You choose your words carefully because you don’t want to create any new problems. If you started any new projects in October 2019, you’ll be able to take those projects and expand on their success. At the same time, you’ll want to wait until November 30th before you complete all those projects to make certain all the details are in order.
When Mercury retrograde forms a trine to Neptune retrograde on November 13th, this will be the second time this trine occurs in this triad sequence. The first time it occurred was on October 15, 2019 when Mercury was direct. The last time it will occur is on November 28, 2019 when Mercury is once again direct and Neptune is direct.
When Mercury retrograde forms a trine to Neptune, you want to understand your dreams. You like to approach situations from a creative point of view. This is a great time period if you’re an artist. You’re able to link with spirit and pull down creative work.
It’s more difficult to be realistic when Mercury retrograde forms the trine to Neptune. Because you want to be attuned to your spiritual nature, you don’t want to view things from a realistic point of view. So, do the best you can not to sign any contracts at this time. You’ll miss some important details and find that you aren’t addressing all the real concerns. Perhaps after November 28th when Mercury in direct motion forms the trine to Neptune you’ll understand how to take your creative energy and make it more realistic.
Be cautious on November 14th when Venus forms the square to Neptune retrograde. It will be difficult to get all the facts, whether that pertains to relationships or financial matters. You want to believe other people, especially those who appear to support your long-term goals. But you need to be very careful. What you think is there is simply an illusion. It’s too easy to see what you want instead of what’s actually in front of your eyes.
When Ceres enters the sign of Capricorn on November 15th, you feel more responsible for not only your actions, but those of others around you. You’re willing to take on responsibilities. Yet you also don’t want other people to tell you what to do. Take time to develop your expertise in a field that is very important for you. If you do this, you’ll build a solid foundation and feel more confident in your work.
Mars is happy to enter the sign of Scorpio, its ruler, on November 19th. You feel as if you have more power. It’s easier to focus on details. You’re able to move forward with your life. Just don’t be so focused on your goals that you miss any opportunities for help from other people.
Ceres forms a square to Chiron retrograde on November 20th before Mercury in Scorpio turns direct. When Ceres forms a square to Chiron retrograde you understand the importance of taking responsibility for your actions, but you don’t want to be responsible for others. You realize that if other people do things on their own, they’ll grow more confident and appreciate what you have to offer.
Mercury turns direct on November 20th and you feel a big sigh of relief because now you’ll start getting more information that makes sense. When it went retrograde on October 31st you could feel that people didn’t want to share information with you. You realized they wanted to keep secrets. This put you into the position of trying to hear what the truth was. This also made it more difficult for you to get at the truth.
While not all the secrets in the world will be revealed today, you’ll start receiving information that was withheld from you earlier in the month. Some of the revealed information will surprise you because it’s not what you expect. But, most of the information will provide a sense of relief because now you can move on with your own plans.
When Mars forms the quincunx to Chiron retrograde on November 21st, you’ll want to take action and move forward with your life. But this is a day where you need to reflect on all the information you have. With Mars in Scorpio you may want to keep things to yourself. You definitely don’t want to give so much information away that other people use it against you.
When the Sun enters the sign of Sagittarius on November 22nd, you feel more optimistic about life. You want to go out and play. You don’t want to be restrained by others. So, take the time to play and have fun. You deserve it.
Life gets easier for you on November 23rd when Mars forms the sextile to Ceres. Often Mars represents the need to rush in and grab the situation. But with Mars in Scorpio, you’re will to slow down and observe your environment. You realize that you don’t have to prove anything to anyone else. For this reason, you’re willing to compromise if that helps solve a problem or get a task done. You’re also willing to share the spotlight with others.
Normally when Venus forms a conjunction to Jupiter, it’s a great day. But you need to be a little more cautious on November 24th because Mars will also form an opposition to Uranus retrograde a few hours later.
Your optimism is very high with Venus forming the conjunction to Jupiter. You feel that you can do anything, especially since both planets are in the sign of Sagittarius. But you need to move slowly. You need to consider all the facts and that’s going to be difficult. Don’t put yourself in harm’s way by rushing into situations.
There is that tendency to rush into situations when Mars forms an opposition to Uranus retrograde. You don’t want to wait for other people. You just want to get it done. It’s a good thing that Mars is in Scorpio because you understand the value of letting other people help you. You also understand the value of listening to suggestions from others. You may even feel as if you’re hearing a little voice in the back of your mind saying, “slow down.” If you listen to that inner voice you’ll be fine.
Before Venus enters the sign of Capricorn on November 25th, Ceres forms a trine to Uranus retrograde. New information is coming your way. You’re able to assess situations better. You understand what you need to do to protect yourself. You may also be able to release responsibilities and let other people handle the situation.
When Venus enters the sign of Capricorn there are five energy points in Capricorn: Venus, Ceres, Moon’s South Node, Saturn, and Pluto. You feel a deep sense of responsibility. You don’t want to do anything that causes problems. As a matter of fact, you’re not willing to make any changes that disrupt the status quo. You feel it’s important that things remain the same so you can accomplish your goals.
You may feel a lot of hope when the new Moon with Sun and Moon in Sagittarius occurs on November 26th, but you need to be careful because this new Moon also forms a quincunx to Uranus retrograde. You think you have all the facts, but new information surfaces. You feel as if life is going to be smooth, but unexpected events occur. The new Moon also forms a trine to Chiron retrograde indicating that you need to release old pain if you want to move on with your life.
Before Neptune in Pisces turns direct on November 27th, Venus forms a square to Chiron retrograde. Perhaps you realize that you don’t always have to be the responsible person in a situation. Or, you realize that you gave up too much when you were busy taking care of others. This is a day for spiritual renewal and learning that it’s all right to do things for yourself.
When Neptune does turn direct, you may not feel it too much. It turned retrograde on June 21, 2019. You may just feel a greater calmness. Since Neptune is subtle in nature, you may feel as if withheld information is slowly being revealed. And, as you learn this information you realize that you’re not really surprised.
The trine Mercury forms to Neptune on November 28th will be the last time this trine occurs in this triad sequence. The first time it occurred was on October 15, 2019 when Mercury was direct and Neptune was retrograde. The second time it occurred was on November 13, 2019 when both Mercury and Neptune were retrograde.
You may have had aspirations which you wanted to act on between October 15th and now. But it was important that you didn’t act on them because you didn’t have all the facts. Now the facts are slowly being revealed, especially with Neptune being in direct motion.
Normally any new facts you get would come slowly because of Neptune, but Venus forms a trine to Uranus retrograde after Mercury makes its last trine to Neptune in this triad sequence. For this reason, you’ll feel as if information is just coming very quickly. Because you’re receiving the information so quickly, it’s important that you take a few days to process the information. You want to understand how this information impacts you personally.
You’ll be able to process the information on November 30th when Mercury forms the last sextile to Saturn in its triad sequence. The first time this sextile occurred was on October 14, 2019 when Mercury was direct. The second time this sextile occurred was on November 13, 2019 when Mercury was retrograde.
This Mercury/Saturn aspect lets you see things realistically. You’re also able to communicate in a clear manner. So, if you are still confused, you know what questions to ask to get clarity.
After Mercury forms the last sextile to Saturn in this triad sequence, Venus forms a conjunction to Ceres. Now you can find that balance between implementing your dreams and the reality of those dreams. You realize that you need to be responsible for certain actions in order for those dreams to manifest. But, you feel good with what you can accomplish.
