Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, Nov. 11th:
Monday, the Moon remains in steady, peaceful Taurus all day. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well. In other words: change is not our favorite thing and “rushing things” goes against our grain. What is our favorite thing for the next two days? It’s probably, slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses 😉
Monday very early morning, if possible, connect with people that can support your projects on a practical level, and share with them what you have going on.
Monday late morning, a Sun/Mercury alignment in almost 19 degrees of Scorpio becomes exact at 10:22am EST. We started to feel this aspect build from last week Sunday morning (Nov. 10th) on; it will remain strong until this Tuesday evening. Mercury aligns with the Sun quite frequently, but we may not always be able to see this transit from the US; the last time this transit of Mercury across the Sun was visible from the US was in 2016, and the next time will be in 2039.
Generally speaking, when the Sun and Mercury come together, we are especially sharp, communicative, and open. This aspect indicates a confident mind and an analytical approach to life.
Intelligence and communication abilities are strong at this time; however, we may not listen as well as the other speaks — we might be too busy thinking about what to say next. Words matter now, so choose them wisely: If people hung on your every word, what would you say then? What would you hold back from saying?
Our opinions are usually strong during this time; we like to think independently and are proud of our opinions and our thoughts. For this reason, our egos might get bruised if we are not “heard” — if our opinions are pushed aside, ignored or criticized. As best as you can, express yourself fully, knowing that others may have different opinions… and that’s ok.
The Sun/Mercury alignment in Scorpio brings a heightened focus towards thinking about the unknown, facing our worst fears, or dealing with loss in some way — in particular, letting go of the “old” to let in the “new”.
If we remain attached to the “old” (through fear of letting go of it to meet the “new”), we are likely to experience this as a dark, difficult transition in our lives — but if not, it could help us build inner strength and show us what cannot be taken away — we will see at last that nothing outside of us can take away the power and resilience that lives inside of us.
Our thinking may become obsessive — but becoming controlling (or even paranoid) may not serve us — choose your battles wisely and seek to provide empowerment wherever possible.
Since Mercury is also still Retrograde, ask yourself: What has come up for me since Mercury entered its Shadow phase on Oct. 11th? What, if anything, have I already revisited or even re-processed since Mercury went retrograde back on Oct. 31st?
What am I still obsessing about? Scared about? When or where do I still focus on “worst case scenarios” that are connected to past traumas or disempowerments? What if I surrendered my fears 5% more completely than I have in the past? What if I gave myself 5% more freedom to sense my inner strength, my fierce, open heart, and the passionate love for life that is pumping through my veins, right now, in this moment? What place of power would I stand in then?
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 16-22 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you will be more affected by this alignment. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo, Gemini or Virgo (the Sun rules Leo; Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo)
Monday evening, we are invited to make some internal adjustments: We may want to …
