We have an INTENSE and transformative weekend ahead with Saturday’s New Moon in Scorpio instigating powerful change and new beginnings! A challenging aspect between Scorpio’s ruling planets, Mars and Pluto, follows this weekend’s New Moon and brings underlying anger and power struggles up to the surface to be expressed in a big way! The passionate, fiery energy this weekend runs dark and deep— it’s likely to be a wild ride, so be prepared!
Friday (11/17): Mercury in Sagittarius kicks off its retrograde pre-shadow period with a supportive sextile over to Mars in the balanced and harmonious sign of Libra. This aspect is excellent for making decisions and taking action on them in a way that is fair and considerate of all parties involved. This is not, however, a good time to initiating and important, new action as the moon is dark and in detriment in the intense, passionate sign of Scorpio throughout the day today.
Saturday (11/18): The New Moon in Scorpio comes exact today at 4:42am bringing powerful and transformative new beginnings for us all! This New Moon runs deeper than deep in the dark and secretive sign of Scorpio, compelling us toward solitude and self-reflection. Now is a time when we can more easily go inward to examine our hidden motivations that lie deep below our surface-level awareness, empowering us to take on greater control over our behavior, our mindset, and ultimately the way we live our lives. With an inconjunct aspect from Uranus in the mix, there may be a pull toward dramatic change or overly rebellious behavior. Acting on these impulses in the moment may cause more harm than good, but the frustration that arises out of the need for change can point us in the right direction for our plans moving forward.
Sunday (11/19): Mars in Libra comes into a challenging and super-intense square with Pluto in Capricorn today. This is a deep and passionate aspect that can cause us to act impulsively out of anger or frustration, leading us to say and do things we may later regret. People may be more prone to violence, aggression, and manipulation under this influence, so it is best for us all to keep our guard up over these next couple of days. This energy is best channeled productively into hyper-focused, intense work or activity. Mars square Pluto is also a highly sexually charged energy, which may be channeled into a deeply connected passionate experience within our relationships.
Have a beautiful weekend everyone! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast! ☺
