Sun Signs for November ’17
(To see your Sun sign right away, scroll down.)
The information in this column is limited. It does not replace your seeing your astrologer. If you know the sign of your Moon and your Ascending sign, read those sections also. This information is helpful because it mentions planets passing through your sign. These do bring opportunities.
Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in November. The emphasis this month is on the signs Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Libra relates, Scorpio reacts intensely, and Sagittarius seeks. Venus in week 1 and Mars all month are in Libra. This emphasis is on relationships, art, beauty, and fairness. Mars in Libra requires that we try to get along with all, especially with mate. Mars will be connecting with the diminishing Uranus Pluto square, so we should avoid extremes. Venus will be connecting with this in week one and we should take care in love. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3; Mercury in week 1, and Venus in weeks 2, 3, and 4 are in passionate Scorpio. Here is a focus on passion and a starry message to keep passion flowing in a positive direction. Planets passing through Scorpio will pass by good Jupiter and this is a help to us. Along with Jupiter these planets will trine Neptune and enhance imagination and romance. The Sun in week 4 and Mercury in weeks 2, 3, and 4 are in Sagittarius. Here the focus is on travel, seeking, and opining. While planets are in Sagittarius, they will pass by serious Saturn, so let’s stay upbeat and encouraged. Jupiter went into Scorpio last month and stays for a year. This tends to promote intense issues like sex and money. Taxes and insurance will get special attention. Saturn continues in Sagittarius until Jan. ’18. Sagittarius, Gemini, Pisces, and Virgo should set sensible goals, maintain vitality, get rest and sleep, and seek out joy and joyful people. Saturn is trine Uranus. This is a harmonious relationship between slow moving planets and brings good to us in business and science. Saturn is past the square with Neptune and yet I still see it at work in our culture. When we see the practical folks in conflict with the idealistic people that is an expression of these two planets.
A Full Moon in Taurus on the 3rd and 4th focuses on money and the fall spring concepts of decline and increase. A New Moon in Scorpio on the 16th, 17th, and morning of the 18th focuses on intensity.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Leo on the 9th, 10th, and morning of the 11th and in Pisces on the 26th, 27th, and morning of the 28th.
Israel continues in the news. In their birth chart, early Scorpio rises, a Taurus Sun is in the 7th, and Moon, Pluto, Saturn, and Mars are in Leo in the 10th. Iran has three planets in Aquarius forming a grand cross with Israel’s planets. This is a tense relationship.
The Pluto Uranus square is weakening but the placement of Jupiter is helping it to continue during much of ’17. It makes the extreme unpredictable and the unpredictable more extreme. When you hear about events that are unusually bad, like tornadoes ( Moore OK.) and earthquakes, Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Colorado floods, the Philippines typhoon, the Washington mudslide, the IL F4, the Ca. Drought, and the recent floods in Texas this is one of the culprits. This aspect existed in the early 30s. I have concluded that this square also represents among other conflicts, the conflict between the left (Uranus) and the right (Capricorn). I have finally resolved it in my own mind. With so much news coverage of the conflicting positions, I see it as an opportunity to see the good that the left has to offer and to see the good that the right has to offer. I’ll be writing a paper on the Uranus/Pluto square soon and posting on facebook. Friend me. I’ll include the good things that are coming from this square like new discoveries about death and the afterlife.
Saturn has left Scorpio, where it showed intense grief. I’m happy that I have read, “Life after Life”, “Evidence for the Afterlife”, “Proof of Heaven”, and “Heaven is for Real”. These books are as close as we can get to evidence for heaven and an afterlife, with the exception of having an NDE. As evidence they are very comforting. Incidentally, “Proof of Heaven” came out while Jupiter was in Gemini. Jupiter is optimism and faith, and ideas and books come under Gemini’s rule. (We now have the new show, “Proof” on cable.)
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 16, 17, 20, & 30. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
