November 19: Mars Enters Scorpio
The Surprising Conditions Required for this Particular Rebirth of Power
The final day of Mercury retrograde sees Mars adorned in the shimmering, black armor that is his domicile of Scorpio. Chaotic potential always lurks in the final day or two of Mercury retrograde, and we should wonder what this new positive emphasis on Mars will bring between now and the end of the calendar year. On the one hand, his building opposition to Uranus in Taurus speaks to a rebirth of self, power, and sexuality. In some corners, the energy will play out more dynamically, disrupting financial partnerships and stoking powerful passions that could prove challenging for current relationships.
Is it time for a change? A question more likely to be on the mind as our passions are renewed and refocused. Sometimes in order for the rebirth to occur, we have to dive down to the depths first—or explore a path that isn’t ultimately for our benefit. The sky omens reveal a positive outcome is supported now by surrendering and shedding your former skin.
