Chiron (Wounded Healer) stations direct in Pisces on November 23rd, increasing the acceptance of doubts/pain, and the healing that follows. This is not a cure-all, but it is a move towards working with (rather than denying) what hurts. From November 23rd to 25th, Mercury in Scorpio conjuncts Saturn, focusing you on the essential truths. This energy is about hard core facts and deep realizations. It can indicate an ending or formal commitment that’s carved in stone. This certainty will act as the foundation for Mercury’s leap into expansive Sagittarius (on November 27th) where new information and possibilities will flood in. Note that Mercury will build to a square with Neptune on November 30th, which offers dual potential for truly inspired ideas and misguided ideals.
November 24th to 26th sees Venus in Sagittarius trining Uranus Rx, and the Sun in Sagittarius squaring Neptune in Pisces. Potentials for love, money, self-esteem and indulgence will be wide open, as Uranus urges you to take a chance, and Neptune dissolves inhibitions. But a square to Neptune can also dissolve common sense, so keep in mind that not everything floating in front of you is for keeps. As Venus squares Chiron from November 25th to 27th, some people may trip over the results of their overindulgence, or blind faith. Nonetheless, the flip side of this square is faith in yourself no matter how vulnerable or embarrassed you may feel.
