November 12: The Big Jupiter-Pluto Conjunction

November 12: The Big Jupiter-Pluto Conjunction

The moon is opposite Mars retrograde at 8:50 a.m.


This morning, the moon forms an opposition with Mars retrograde, leading to irritation and frustration. The Libra moon’s penchant for indecision is curtailed by Mars in Aries’ impulsive nature, and the risk here is we may be empowered to take swift or dramatic action, only to feel remorseful in the aftermath, kicking ourselves for not exercising patience. Avoid taking out resulting grievances on those who you are closest to.



Pallas is conjunct Jupiter at 11:19 a.m.


Pallas is conjunct Pluto at 12:41 p.m.


Before noon, the asteroid Pallas is conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn. Pallas illustrates wisdom and strategy, and its connection to expansive Jupiter suggests that a combination of outreach and faith will provide us with the resources needed to tackle a personal venture and create a successful empire. One never knows what alliances will spur good fortune, so we should trust in serendipity. Building relationships with those from disparate backgrounds, walks of life, or industries inevitably advance the culture as a whole, but it will also facilitate our own sovereignty.


Following this meeting, Pallas forms a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn, illuminating how wisdom can be applied in the depths of the psyche. Pallas and Pluto task us with battling unconscious fears and emerging from the underworld victorious. Our strength lies in our ability to be rational and tactical, even while facing shadows of prejudice, materialism, and conceit.



Jupiter is conjunct Pluto at 1:39 p.m.


In the early afternoon, Jupiter and Pluto are conjunct for the third and final time in 2020. This connection also occurred on April 4 and June 29 (and both dates featured an alignment with the asteroid Pallas). Can you see any thematic ties between those days and your current circumstances?


Jupiter is expansion, prosperity, spirituality, philosophy, and knowledge; and Pluto is transmutation, unconscious impulses, and healing. Their conjunction is broadly about ambition and not letting anything get in the way of our advancement, but this year has demanded that we radically redefine not only what our ambitions are, but also what “advancement” means to us. Confrontations with the shadow side of ethical, spiritual, or material dogma ultimately spark personal evolution. What outmoded ideas have you allowed to pass away, so you might live your truth instead of posturing?



The moon is conjunct Venus at 3:31 p.m.


Mid-afternoon, the moon and Venus are conjunct in Libra, promoting feelings of love and generosity. Relationships of all kinds are favored, as we are predisposed to compromise and finding common ground. We are especially sensitive to beautiful images and music at this time, and it will be easy to express affection with family, friends, and lovers. Our mood attracts those with whom to share a good conversation or activities like decorating, cooking, or creating art.



The moon is square Pluto at 9:00 p.m.


The moon is square Jupiter at 9:05 p.m.


Come nightfall, the Libra moon is square to Pluto in Capricorn, outing secret feelings or private suspicions. As the Libra moon desires peace, this could prove an emotionally upsetting or turbulent time filled with jealousies and resentments. Use this influence for introspection, to go inward, and look closer at the origin of compulsive or aggressive behavior.


Shortly thereafter, the moon is square Jupiter, indicating stress, primarily aroused from how your political or moral beliefs are perceived by outside parties. Ideological differences between yourself and a parental figure could be a source of discord, as your attempts to “enlighten” come off as preachy, leaving them feeling gaslit. Despite good intentions, overconfidence, or arrogance lead to a hard fall. Wait until a later time to get your ideas across.
