Astro Magic November 2023
Out of the Phoenix's ashes, the archer rises and points his arrow into the eternal heavens. It’s a drastic shift in energies from the discomfort we faced during Scorpio season. Scorpio season is about facing our fears, phobias, and working on our dysfunctions (and yes, we all have them); whereas Sagittarius season is about looking to the future -- onward and upward.
In mythology, Jupiter, the King of the gods, rules the heavens, and likewise, he is the ruler of Sagittarius. Jupiter was a benevolent deity, but he had a little zipper problem. He couldn’t seem to keep it up! His Greek counterpart, Zeus, was always at odds with his wife Hera because of his numerous affairs and the many children from his illicit unions. Now, we can easily get caught up in the stories of a male deity constantly cheating on his wife, but stories (as repulsive as some may be), in many ways, describe archetypal energies through imagery and artistic prose. However, Zeus’ illicit affairs and conquests are not necessarily about male dominance and womanizing; they reveal this fiery god’s need to fertilize the sea of possibilities. The focus is on tomorrow’s potential and what can be created, not the real world of today, which is a feature found in all the fire signs.
Likewise, Hera (Zeus’s wife) is not merely an insecure, desperate housewife who enacts her revenge on her husband, his mistresses, and his illegitimate progeny. Instead, Hera reflects the real world of obligations, responsibilities, contracts/agreements, and the stabilizing effect of the element of earth. After all, Sagittarius needs grounding in the real world so it can give birth to creative visions.
During Sagittarius season, we need to leave the past behind and focus on the future. Magically speaking, we can use this potent energy to create goals (realistic ones), juice up our inspiration, and focus on the world we can create. It’s excellent for returning to school, studying something new, visiting faraway places, and increasing personal vitality.

October 30, 2023 – November 5, 2023
The week starts with the Moon moving through social Gemini, which is perfect for all the Halloween celebrations this week. After the last few years, festivities have been stymied because of the pandemic, but this year the need to connect with others sets the tone for the week. On Tuesday (Halloween), Venus trines Uranus in Taurus. Venus trine Uranus is the perfect energy to do things outside the box, bring some excitement into your life, and allow you to break free from your daily rituals. In other words, pick out your costume and have a little bit of fun.
During the middle of the week, the Moon moves out of Gemini and into Cancer. Everyone needs an emotional timeout, and after the electric energy that occurs at the beginning of the week, some rest and relaxation may be in order. Use this Moon in Cancer to focus on your personal needs, which may include some extra sleep. Focus on decompressing.
After an energetic and fun-filled start to the week, the storm clouds arrive this weekend. First, Venus opposes Neptune. Venus opposes Neptune is a complicated aspect, because it often leads to disappointments in relationships. One of the key ways to work with Venus oppose Neptune is to allow your partners to be as human as possible. The more idealistic you are in your relationships, the more difficult Venus square Neptune will be. Then on Saturday, Mercury opposes Uranus. Your thoughts may be difficult to control, and you may go through feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. Avoid acting impulsively. Check the facts before making concrete decisions.
November 6, 2023 – November 12, 2023
Relationships will be the primary theme for the start of the week. On Monday, Venus forms a trine to powerful Pluto in Capricorn. Venus trine Pluto makes relationship issues intense, but with the aspect being a beneficial trine, it can lead to productive outcomes. You can see the inner workings of your relationships on a deeper level, which will ultimately make them more meaningful and secure. New relationships that begin at this time may be difficult to control, so buckle your seatbelt! Later on Monday, Mercury trines Neptune. You will be more sensitive to those around you and may be called upon to help someone in need.
Venus moves out of Virgo and into Libra on Wednesday. Venus in Libra allows you to strengthen your relationships. Take the time to build meaningful relationships that go beyond transactional exchanges. Pay attention to the needs and interests of others, and respect thoughtfully and supportively. Be mindful of your partners’ perspectives when making decisions. Also on Wednesday, Mercury sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. If you need to get to the root of a problem, this is an auspicious time to do so.
This weekend, Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius. While Mercury is in Sagittarius, you will notice a boost in your mood, and you will feel optimistic about life. Use this energy to focus on big ideas and think outside the box. However, Mars opposes Uranus on Saturday. Mars oppose Uranus is an extremely volatile aspect that leads to conflict, confrontations, and difficult to control. Avoid reacting as best as possible, and stay away from people that are problematic.
November 13, 2023 – November 19, 2023
Besides the New Moon in Scorpio that happens on Monday, the Sun opposes Uranus in Taurus. The Sun opposing Uranus is a disruptive aspect that often reveals parts of you that you haven’t considered before. You may react to things in a surprising way or be surprised by your interactions with others. Like all tense (conjunction, square, opposition) Uranus aspects – expect the unexpected.
During the middle of the week, Mercury sextiles Venus in Libra. Mercury sextile Venus helps you get in touch with your feelings and communicate your feelings effectively. If you need to express how you feel to someone, this is an excellent time to do it. Otherwise, midweek is perfect for socializing, shopping, and other leisurely pursuits.
This weekend, the Sun and Mars trine Neptune in Pisces. This is the perfect weekend to reach out to those in need and offer your assistance. You will find that people are grateful for any help you provide. Compassion and empathy are the name of the game this weekend, and your focus will be on other people’s needs, not your own. Later this weekend, the energy will shift as the Sun conjoins Mars in Scorpio. Expect a burst of energy, and this is an excellent time to focus on getting things done and off your to-do list.
November 20, 2023 – November 26, 2023
Take advantage of the beginning of the week, because to be frank, the rest of the week is a hot mess. On Monday and Tuesday, the Sun and Mars sextile Pluto. In astrology, Pluto transforms whatever is not working in your life, and with the Sun and Mars forming a beneficial aspect to Pluto, you can make the necessary changes to make your life work better. It also provides you with more productive strategies that help you achieve your goals.
Midweek, the Sun moves into fiery Sagittarius and immediately slams into restrictive Saturn. The Sun square Saturn is a difficult aspect that often evokes feelings of isolation and loneliness. In classical astrology, the Sun square Saturn is considered “unlucky,” because it often forces us to be responsible for our actions and take care of issues we may have avoided. Avoid making assumptions while this aspect is active. Check the facts before making decisions.
This weekend, Mars follows the Sun’s lead and moves into Sagittarius, and like the Sun, Mars will form a tense square to Saturn. Mars square Saturn is an extremely frustrating aspect that often comes with a side of self-doubt. Instead of falling into negative mindsets, use this energy to proceed methodically, even if you feel blocked in some capacity. Also, try to be as proactive as possible, especially if you feel angry towards someone.
November 27, 2023 – December 3, 2023
We start the last week of November with a challenging square featuring Mercury and Neptune. Unfortunately, Mercury square Neptune often leads to miscommunication and misunderstandings, so keep your communication with others as clear as possible. Despite its negative reputation, Mercury square Neptune doesn’t have to be negative. You can use this energy through creative activities, such as meditation, journaling, art, and music. Also, you can use Mercury square Neptune to enhance your intuition. With a dose of focus and effort, Mercury square Neptune can be a powerful tool for personal growth, as long as you are willing to be mindful, check the facts, and verify the information to make informed decisions.
On Wednesday, the Moon enters Cancer, where it will hang out until Friday morning. The Moon in Cancer is about self-care and nurturing yourself. It’s the perfect time to ensure that your personal needs are met. Make use of soothing practices such as yoga, reiki massage, or breathwork. Also, the Moon in Cancer can be used to enhance your home or set up a sacred space.
The weekend is pretty busy. First, Mercury moves out of playful Sagittarius and enters serious Capricorn, and then on Saturday, Mercury forms an opportunistic sextile to Saturn. Mercury sextile Saturn is an excellent time to focus on projects that need focus and discipline, especially if it involves making personal changes that lead to a more structured and manageable life. However, on Sunday, expect trouble in relationships because Venus squares Pluto in Capricorn.
