Dear NightFall Astrology readers,
As the horoscope’s title indicates, this week, we’ll be faced with quite a bit of resistance to our will, causing us a feeling of intense frustration. But with 3 planets in Scorpio (the Sun, Mercury and Mars), strategy and research can still help us push forward whatever situation is closest to our hearts. The energy will be that of “the need to break free of ongoing ordeals” in our lives. Let’s try our best to make this happen with the guidance of the stars.
Here’s your weekly horoscope.
- From November 8th until November 13th (exact on November 10th), Mercury and Mars will be in conjunction blending their energies in the sign of Scorpio. This will give us the sharpness of mind and the strength of will to take action to deal with life’s hardships. Beware of your tongues getting too sharp, though! With Mars’s impulsivity, you might regret your words later. Do your best to observe and evaluate the situation before acting.
As this is a conjunction, it can go both positively and negatively according to your actions. This is the most potent aspect in astrology, so act wisely! Let’s take traditional astrology’s point of view. Mars does better in Scorpio than in Aries even though it rules both signs, as Mars is a lesser malefic in night signs and charts, and Scorpio is definitely a nocturnal sign. Mercury is in its last days of visibility (it will go invisible on November 14th), so use the intense intellectual energy it’s been giving us, transform into Sherlock Holmes, and crack the case!
This transit will be most beneficial for Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer, Virgo, and Capricorn.
Leo, Taurus and Aquarius should do their best to avoid flying off the handle in their communications this week.
- From November 9th until November 12th (exact on November 10th-11th), Mercury and Mars in Scorpio will be squaring (tense aspect) Saturn in Aquarius. This is very challenging and frustrating energy. It feels like you have one foot on the accelerator and the other on the brake. This transit can give nervousness, heightened anxiety, hasty decisions, incidents with technology and transportation, becoming excessively demanding towards others… It would be best for all of us to stay grounded, practise mindfulness and not give in to our negative emotions. I know it’s easier said than done, especially when we’ve just gone out of a Mercury retrograde and a significant big-planet slowdown, but trust me, you’ll thank me and this horoscope later.
Consider this transit as the opportunity to take better care of your psychological and spiritual health mainly. With top-notch spiritual, physical and mental health, you will be able to reach your goals more easily. Clarity of the mind and discipline are the order of the day for this transit.
This transit will be most difficult for Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo, and Taurus.
- From November 10th until November 14th (exact on November 12th), the Sun in Scorpio will trine (harmonious aspect) Neptune retrograde in Pisces. This is gorgeous energy for all artistic endeavours and gives a lot of compassion, strengthened faith and spirituality, and inspiration/motivation.
After the dodgy vibes of the early half of the week, this wide-eyed wonder will feel like a blessing. But SOME self-protection is still warranted. Neptune in Pisces is a boundary dissolver, which can also make you gullible. “Trust” might be established a little too quickly under these skies—and it’s easy to get suckered by a smooth sales pitch. Neptune is the planet of fantasy and illusion, while the Sun governs our egos, and flattery can get people everywhere. Enjoy the fawning, but don’t fall under its spell. And hey, maybe that “too good to be true” opportunity will check out as totally legit! Don’t forget to use the Scorpio energy to do the necessary background checks!
This transit will be most supportive of Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer, Taurus, and Capricorn.
- Despite the harmonious and dreamy-eyed trine between the Sun and Neptune, this weekend won’t be surprise-free with Mercury in Scorpio opposing (tense aspect) Uranus in Taurus. This transit can bring out, unexpectedly, hidden information and secrets, especially regarding finances and politics, whether it’s on a personal or mundane level. It also heralds sudden fluctuations in the financial markets (we’ve been already seeing that this week with Bitcoin hitting a new all-time high of $67,300).
Such volatile energy can also push us towards impulsive purchases, especially when it comes to high-tech items. This isn’t a good time for this type of spending. Mars will be starting to oppose Uranus (becoming exact next week on November 17th) as well, adding to the impulsivity factor. Wait it out, and if you really need it, you’ll be still able to buy it after the transit.
This aspect will be most challenging for Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius.
Stay strong and keep your eyes on the prize!
