Everything you need to know about the Earth opening up and swallowing your planets or the other way around.
Horoscopes by Corina Dross
And here we are; having moved through that thin, filmy veil between the seasons, we’re seeing the world a little differently. Whether the dark tones of autumn feel truer than than the flashier colors of summer is different for each of us, but this shift in perception can help us see familiar situations as radically new –and prompt us to take unexpected actions that reflect these new priorities. There may be some heartbreak in our old dreams appearing thin and insubstantial, but there is the comfort of being able to see clearly and redirect our energies. If the proverbial scales have not yet fallen from your eyes, this month will certainly shake them free. With many planets moving through Scorpio this month, we’re still highly aware of all that is hidden, all that is damaged, and what skillful means are needed for regeneration.
On November 10th the conjunction of Mars, planet of aggression and assertion, with Pluto, ruler of entrenched power and death, sets high stakes for any conflict. Their combination is volatile and explosive, but could be revelatory as well. Think about where you feel most stagnant and powerless, and direct this energy there (carefully!). Be prepared to be a little bruised and shaken up in the aftermath. A few days later Venus sidles up against Saturn on the 13th, helping us scrutinize where our intimacies need work. The Sun follows a few days later, meeting up with Saturn on the 18th, and Mercury ends the cycle with a Saturn conjunction on the 25th. These two weeks are an important time to commit to taking your connections seriously and learning how to work with the chaos, fear, and pain they cause with levelheaded maturity. Saturn’s lessons are always about longevity: what will sustain us in the long run? And in Scorpio, the focus of this question is our hidden, secret intensities –the ways we interpenetrate one another, physically and emotionally. As the trio of Venus, Sun, and Mercury moves into Sagittarius in the last week of November, the mood shift perceptibly lift.
As always, read these horoscopes with the freedom to take only what you need. For a more rounded forecast, the astro-literate are encouraged to read their rising sign first, followed by their Sun and Moon signs, and for a personal reading, contact me.
Not liking what life has in it,
“It’s probably dead, whatever it is,”
You said, and turned, and thought
Of one spot on the ground, what it means to all of us
Passing through the earth. And the filleted, reasonable
Nymphs of the fashions of the air points to that too:
“No need to be deprived. We are all
And whatever it takes to get us out of the mess we’re in,
One of us has.”
