November will be an exciting month, astrologically. From a total lunar blood moon eclipse, Mars retrograde, and a special portal happening on November 11, there will be so much energy at play; here’s what to expect.
Closing out the last eclipse season of the year, the November 8th blood moon eclipse in Taurus will start off the month with a bang.
The Blood Moon Eclipse & Mars Retrograde
Eclipses are known to usher in fated change and transformation- so during this time, it’s normal to expect massive shifts in our lives. Under this energy, you may learn something new about a person close to you or a current endeavor that either pushes you forward or causes everything to come to a screeching halt.
In addition to the blood moon eclipse, the energy of the Mars retrograde will be influencing us all. When Mars is retrograde, it’s typical to feel less motivation and energy. You might have a difficult time pushing yourself – and in many cases, feel the weight of burnout. Be careful not to push yourself too hard. Balance is key.
Jupiter Returns in Pisces
As Jupiter stations direct in Pisces, we will see Jupiter for the last time in Pisces for 12 years. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, aligning with Pisces, the sign of spirituality and creativity can help us to align with our highest self, with love and understanding.
While November 8 will already be emotionally intense, we can expect to see an even deeper influence of the Mercury Cazimi, which is the alignment of Mercury and the Sun. Under this energy, you will be able to see and understand things from a place of clarity- and with the blood moon pushing fated change-these two transits are likely to end up working together.
On November 11, or 11/11, a powerful portal will open, which will help us find balance in our mind, body, and spirit. Take some time to balance your chakras, most especially your crown, so that you can work in alignment with the Universe, Spirit, God, or whomever your higher power is. This energy provides a unique portal, which can help you directly connect with the spirit. Tarot readings and other forms of divination will be especially potent under this portal.
On November 22, Sagittarius season begins, making us all feel a bit flighty. You will likely feel the urge to reach for your goals and dreams, and if your approach is lacking-it’s a great time to get clear on what is hindering you from getting to where you need to be. And as we shift from a water sign to a fire sign-we will be pushed from a more emotionally based place to a possible sense of urgency to get things done. In many ways-this could serve as a creative influence as well.
