Weekly Horoscope: November 8-14, 2020
A highly active week is upon us with many important aspects and planetary shifts!
November 9 brings forth a sexy and passionate energy as goddess of love, Venus, links arms across the sky with powerhouse Mars. This can heighten sexual tension and one’s physical desires. If single, set a first date but don’t be too quick to jump into bed. If there has been frustration in a current relationship, tempers may flare. Exercise, art, and sports are also wonderful ways to harness this vibration.
The tenth will see our cosmic messenger once again return to the depths of Scorpio for weeks ahead. We experienced Mercury here once before this year. During this time, balance your mind with your emotions. Investigative work and research are especially favored now.
On this same day, the mighty sun links in a trine with Neptune, enhancing your sensitivity and tenderness. Creative or spiritual gifts will benefit. Find ways to create a plan for achieving your goals—especially by connecting with groups or communities who align with your vision.
November 12 will bring Jupiter and Pluto into a third and final conjunction this year. This has been one of the hallmark alignments in 2020 and is most often associated with major wealth, economic prosperity, and tremendous success. This power infuses us, so learn how to make the best of it! We have the ability to achieve large-scale rewards both spiritually and materially. However, as this rare conjunction has also been tied to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will likely see the largest surge at this time.
Ferocious Mars will finally awaken from its many-month slumber on the thirteenth, too. Mars retrogrades roughly once every two years and causes everything that it rules to be reviewed within our lives: passion, desires, action, conflict, and sex. This retrograde took place in the zodiac sign of Aries and has intensified our ego’s hungers. Our energy levels have felt especially depleted since September and we may have seen obstacles and stagnation appear around us. While it will still take a few weeks for Mars to truly regain speed, we will begin to feel our strength return and life’s pace quicken. With Mercury and Mars finally direct, you can feel more confident signing contracts, launching projects, and officially beginning relationships or taking them to the next level.
A new moon in Scorpio arrives on November 14. This luminary will open a door to you depending on where it falls for your rising and sun signs. New moons hold a sway over your life for one week and typically bring something new to you. Fresh starts and opportunities will manifest. As Scorpio rules intimacy, sexuality, and our shadow selves, prepare to find ways to address any of these areas. The sun will also sextile Jupiter on this same day, which will infuse our lives with optimism, good luck, and fortune. Watch as your life grows for six months due to the actions that you take now.
