Henry Rollins once said, “The month of November makes me feel that life is passing more quickly. In an effort to slow it down, I try to fill the hours more meaningfully.”
This month Mercury will retrograde on November 17th and Jupiter will move into Sagittarius. This will form a “learning triangle” where Uranus will enter the Aries house. Confused? To put it simply, this will be a period of re-orientation that will last till May 2020.
There will be a lot of transitions in the short period of time, the Nodes change their position every year and a half. Jupiter shifts its signs each year, Uranus enters the Aries home every few months and Taurus until the end of the year. The energy isn’t very free flowing but stagnant and also to some extent stubborn.
The Nodes are in the Cancer, Capricorn and Jupiter sector which is also affected by the dominant power of Sagittarius. In the tumultuous period, you will also see Venus on November 16, so you can expect sweeping changes in your professional and personal life.
You will take more responsibilities and explore new arenas. There is something in the air which will make you determined to do something. You’ll plan things out and you will also work hard to achieve it.
You will lead a lot of projects and take charge of your life in general – and relationships in particular. All this while you have blamed everyone- from the rude shopkeeper to your boss – for your lack of direction. You will learn to look into your heart and figure out what exactly it wants.
You will think less of the monetary benefits of a situation and go ahead with your passion. Dreams do come at a price and now more than ever, you are ready to pay it. Jupiter is the planet of spiritual regeneration, and scorpio of focus, both together will surely bring great news.
The Mercury Retrograde will take place from 17th November till 7th December. Why is this phase unique and important? The retrograde will hit fixed star Toliman. Apart from the good things, there will also be certain bumps in your path.
These can be a fallout with old friends, an air of disbelief and mistrust, business plan failures, unforeseen sickness and death. You might also want to pay more attention to your familial bonds.
This retrograde is by no means an easy one but it will also give you a clearer idea as to where you stand in life. There will be chaos, but it will lead to calm. Don’t worry, stay rooted.
