Beautiful Art by Cameron Gray

The planet of War has been opposing chaotic Uranus from midnight November 11, within a one degree orb until around 4 pm on November 13, exact on November 12 at 8 am. This indicates the likelihood of people acting rashly and impulsively if angered or they feel their independence is threatened. With Mars being powerful and aggressive in his rulership of Scorpio, there could be themes of taking revenge for past grievances. It may happen out of the blue in ways you could not have anticipated! Probably a good time to focus on your own issues and stay safely at home, rather than be out driving on the roads! This will continue until just before the Scorpio New Moon, on November 13, at 8.27 pm in the evening.

The luminaries will be at 20 degrees and 43 minutes of Scorpio, it’s 21st degree. The Sun and Moon will be applying by close conjunction to asteroid Hopi, (Native American Indian wisdom), forming a stellium with Mars. Uranus will have retrograded slightly, making an opposition to Sol and Luna from 21 degrees and 04’ minutes of Taurus.

For this lunation the Sabian Symbol is “A soldier obeys his conscience and resists his orders”. This talks about the readiness to face the results of a refusal to follow the authoritarian patterns of an aggressive society, or inner freedom! Back to the Sun and Moon, they will be forming a T-square from their opposition to Uranus, all making a square to Black Moon Lilith, and asteroids Imhotep (Master Healer and architect of Step Pyramid and Healing Centre at Saqarra near Cairo) and Asteria (Goddess of the Starry Skies and Astrology). This stellium is positioned from 21 Leo 26’ to 23 Leo 26’.

So feminine resentment can play a part in resolving the tension between the New Moon and Uranus, if used in a manner that focuses on healing and building something that has more cosmic consequences! A wide Trine form the Moon to Neptune may help imagine what the future could look like!

With the Sun and Moon in the sign of Scorpio, the focus will be on:

• Self-preservation, standing your ground and confronting what is necessary
• Transformation and self-development
• Strategy, integrating logic and intuition
• Investigating anything that is mysterious or suspicious, keeping secrets
• Studying all things esoteric, psychological or supernatural
• Intensity, penetrate deeply to feel secure, resilience
• Extreme and complex emotions, jealousy and possessiveness
• Manipulation and power plays

The area most aligned with the position of the New Moon can be best gleaned from your natal horoscope chart, however if you only know your Sun Sign, then affirmations around the areas indicated below are likely to be the most powerful.
