There's a volatile mix of influences coming up. Much will be released, but at the same time, new limits will be put in place.
Venus in Scorpio Square Jupiter in Leo
November 7th to 9th sees a bold square between Venus (love, money, self-esteem) in Scorpio and Jupiter (at 21 degrees Leo). Venus in Scorpiowants to an extreme degree. Limits? Bah. Scorpio views limits as markers that point to what's really desirable, just over that wall. All the better if it's forbidden. Jupiter in Leo's optimism will pump up Venus' powers of attraction, turning a desirable objective into a confident obsession. Entitlement edged with raw insistence. You can plow through some barriers with this one, but you can just as easily overestimate the outcome.
Use Mercury's return to Scorpio (on November 8th) as your tool. The last time Mercury was in Scorpio (September 27th to October 10th) it progressed to two degrees before it turned Rx and backed out. Mercury's return could be your chance to pick up where you left off, regarding a conversation, investigation or plan. Look closely at what Venus square Jupiter is offering.
Mars Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn
From November 7th to 10th, Mars will conjunct Pluto at 11 degrees Capricorn, uniting external action with deeper urges. This union can manifest as eruptions of buried anger or ambition. Mars will build to a disruptive square with Uranus Rx (at 13 degrees Aries) from November 8th to 12th, which will crack any remaining restraints. The overall feel is challenges that come out of nowhere, or transformative shots of aggression. You can burn something to the ground, cut all ties, or propel yourself to the next level. You may also have to react decisively to an external challenge. Mars/Pluto has zero empathy, so there is a risk of damage.
If you have power, wield it with discretion. If power is aimed at you, don't hesitate to defend yourself, but keep it clean. Pluto backfires if you play dirty. And remember that Uranus can blow away all plans and expectations, so have a backup.
Again, Mercury in Scorpio is there to help you. From November 10th to 11th, it will trine Neptune Rx in Pisces, adding a layer of compassion to this ruthless energy. Neptune's transcendence pulls Mercury away from Scorpio's strategy, with just enough distance that you can see where the other person is coming from (if you choose to). Also, Mars will sextile Chiron Rx (Wounded Healer) at 13 degrees Pisces on November 12th. Some may barrel right over this quiet energy, but it does suggest practical strategies for tackling a painful issue. Or practical help if you sustain damage during the Mars/Pluto conjunction.
Venus Conjunct Saturn in Scorpio
From November 10th to 12th, Venus will join with Saturn at 25 degrees Scorpio (exact on November 12th). Here's the reality check after the Venus/Jupiter square. Here's the consequences of the Mars/Pluto eruption. Saturn's limits will act as a finish line, result or clarification. Note that Mars will square Uranus exactly on November 12th as well, suggesting sudden releases (Uranus) and shut-downs (Saturn). Capricorn is where the existing structures/limits will be blown away, and Scorpio is where new limits will be put in place. You can consolidate amidst the upheaval, or take stock of what you have left. Venus/Saturn can feel reassuring if you need clarity, because it leaves no doubt as to what you can have, and what you can't.
Ending on a positive note, the Sun in Scorpio squares Jupiter (at 21 degrees Leo) from November 12th to 13th. This suggests that there's more to work with (in the Leo and Scorpio areas of your chart). Jupiter in Leo is not all empty glitter. There's an essential core of hope and motivation. No matter the outcome of the previous days, transiting Jupiter is where the fire of possibility keeps burning.
If you have anything from:
- 20 to 22 degrees of the Fixed signs, you'll feel the Jupiter/Venus and Jupiter/Sun square
- 9 to 14 degrees of the Cardinal signs, you'll feel the Mars/Pluto conjunction and Uranus square
- 3 to 5 degrees of the Water signs, you'll feel the Mercury/Neptune trine
- 12 to 14 degrees Capricorn or Pisces, you'll feel the Mars/Chiron sextile
- 22 to 26 degrees of the Fixed signs, you'll feel the Venus/Saturn conjunction
