Well, the month begins with a bit of confusion, tension and turmoil as Venus, the Sun and Mercury are all close together in Scorpio and then they all respectively cross the transiting south node in in the first week.
Mercury will be combust the Sun at the time of the total lunar eclipse on Tuesday, Nov 8 at 4:02 AM MST but will be within the 15’ range of the Sun for most of the day where is it said to be positive and have the ear of the king. I think this is fortuitous overall.
The eclipse occurs at 16° 1’ in fixed Scorpio with the Moon at 16° 1’ in fixed Taurus, in the nakshatra called Bharani associated with the eternal river of souls and also with Venus, female hormones and whose symbol is the yoni or female sexual organs. And guess what is on the ballot….
The Moon’s next aspect will be to join Uranus in Taurus so there will be some weirdness during the first 2 hours after the eclipse as the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Moon and Uranus are all involved in a square with Saturn. Everyone is going to feel tense and jerked around during this eclipse. And no, I don’t think there will be a civil war. But these are wild times, folks, wild times.
So, after that bit of fun we lighten up as Venus and Mercury move into Sagittarius on the 17th and Jupiter stations at 28 degrees of Pisces getting ready to go into direct motion on the 23rd! This is a good thing as Jupiter is optimistic and likes to expand and have some fun.
Mars is retrograde at 24 Gemini and makes a wide square to Jupiter but generally this isn’t destructive but it can expand existing tensions on the world scale. Saturn at 18 degrees of Aquarius still makes the square aspect to Uranus at 16 degrees of Taurus but they are slowing moving apart now.
Neptune is at 22 degrees of Pisces squaring the Mars retrograde causing some confusion about where things are heading and Pluto is still hanging out at 26 degrees of Capricorn…will it ever end? Yes. He finishes with that degree on December 10, 2022. Whew. 3 more degrees of Capricorn to go!
Read your rising sign and Sun sign for best information. The rising sign will show you which houses the eclipse happens in your natal chart.
Aries — March 21-April 19: Take stock of your situation this month and slow things down to absorb new information coming in after the eclipse on November 8th, which happens in your solar 2nd and 8th houses. These are money, values and asset houses so let that sink in and they are being squared by Saturn in your 11th, another income house.

Jupiter will be helping your through this passage so don’t worry as unexpected blessings will come through. Your best days are the 19th, 20th and AM hours of the 21st.
Scorpio — October 23-November 22: With your ruling planet, Mars, in retrograde motion you are re-evaluating almost everything for the next 2.5 months. The eclipse happens in your 7th and 1st houses and is squared by Saturn in the 4th so this is the classic balancing act between your desires, your spouse’s desire and what your family stability needs. You have responsibilities and must fulfill them. Jupiter’s strong placement in Pisces in the 5th house will give your positive support if you tune into it, particularly around November 23rd when it goes direct. The lunar vibes of the PM hours of the 21st, the 22nd and AM hours of the new Moon on the 23rd are favorable for you.
Sagittarius — November 23-December 20: With Jupiter, your ruling planet, in Pisces and going direct on the 23rd of the month, you will be shaking off some ennui and coming back to life again. Jupiter in its retrograde motion was moving back closer to Neptune which can be quite inspirational or make one like a sleepwalker just going through the motions. It will feel good to move forward in life again so keep that in mind if you feel like blowing off the holidays.

Lots of things up in the air to juggle now. The square aspect is waning soon so you won’t feel so much pressure in the next year. The lunar vibes of the PM hours of the 25th, the 26th, and AM hours of the 27th are your best days.
Aquarius — January 21-February 19: With Saturn in your sign and 1st house and making a square to the eclipse in your 4th and 10th houses, you have the juggling act of balancing home and family life with career demands while trying to not come off as a total hard ass who wants his way all the time. Yes, it can look like that to others. So, the trick is to talk openly about the demands and get feedback from the other people involved. You may not take their advice but don’t shut them out of the conversation. The lunar vibes of the 1st, AM hours of the 2nd, the PM hours of the 27th, the 29th and 29th are your stellar days.
Pisces — February 20-March 20: With Jupiter going direct in your sign on the 23rd, there’s positive stuff coming your way.
