Astro Highlights for the Week of November 12, 2023
This week brings a New Moon in Scorpio that wants to plant seeds of strategic action nestled next to Mars and the Sun. Lunar Scorpio invites shadow work, healing of trauma, and excavating the past to purge yourself of what no longer serves you. It's a powerful New Moon because it's juiced by Mars in Scorpio which is a spiritual warrior.
Mars and the Sun in Scorpio are a dynamic duo all week, tracking closely together and jointly making aspects to the outer planets, beginning with wildcard Uranus at the beginning of the week; moving into a trine with dissolving, elusive Neptune mid-week; and ending the week with a sextile to covert, power mongering Pluto in Capricorn. It's a week that could have seismic generational impact for the babies who are born during this powerful time.
Venus in Libra, where it is very effective, picks up a delicious sextile to Mercury in Sagittarius, smoothing over Mercury in Saggy's brazen declarations. This is a time when big ideas can find social acceptance, where a little charm can go a long way to achieving your goals and plans. This aspect expands to a talent triangle toward the very end of the week, picking up the Moon in Aquarius as it trines Venus in Libra and sextiles Mercury. Venus, Mercury, and the Moon working well together is just what we all need right now - use this wonderful energy while it is on offer. Once the Moon skips into Pisces, it's a different kettle of fishies.
