Parang napaka haba ng mga araw, pero napakabilis ng taon. Umaandar na ulit tayo, pero parang hindi pa din. Before you know it, November na. The last month before we truly say goodbye to the year that was.
November seems a bit tricky. It starts fairly smooth, deceptively easy. Things seem calmer, and the holiday season is starting to feel like the holiday season again, compared to last year. However, we need to guard for complacency. It may not seem so, but November has packed a LOT of punches.
After a relatively smooth first week, MARS, the planet of forward movement, motivation and also aggression, SQUARES (gets into a very tense conversation) with SATURN, the planet of restriction, constriction and delays. Things will feel so restrictive where these energies land in your chart. As with everything that is difficult to move, our tendency is to elevate the effort by pushing or pulling harder. A breaking point may happen, and complications arising from it tends to exponentially expand a week after, when MARS moves forward, approaching an opposition with URANUS, the planet of sudden changes, unexpected events, and quite frankly, of chaos.
As a culmination of all this madness, we enter into Eclipse season, one that give us a teaser of the paradigm shift that the lunar nodes will bring for next year. On the second half of the month, a LUNAR ECLIPSE in TAURUS happens, challenged by an inquisitive Mercury and supported by transformational Pluto.
PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE
NOVEMBER 19, 4:57 PM (+8 UST)
Eclipses signal great new beginnings and great new endings. With this being a Lunar Eclipse, the energy may trigger certain, necessary endings that will create space for important new beginnings to manifest. The Universe helps us end unhealthy attachments, helping us to let go of things that no longer serve us, in the area where the eclipse takes place. Those with planets or points from 23°- 29° in FIXED SIGNS (with the exception of a few mutable signs) can feel this eclipse strongly.
If born on the following dates, this may affect you more than most:
TAURUS: May 14-20
LEO: August 15 – 22
SCORPIO: November 15 – 21 (and Sagittarius born on the 22nd)
AQUARIUS: February 12 – Feb 18 (and Pisces born on the 19th)
And for the titas and titos, some nostalgia to lighten the mood:
For really specific details on how this month’s Cosmic Weather may affect you, you will need your exact birth time and place, and a competent astrologer who can compute and interpret your charts. However, even without these, knowing the general energies at play can greatly assist in planning ahead. You know the drill!
