2018 has been a year of retrogrades. Under all of this retrograde energy, we have had to really stop and assess the direction of our lives. We have had to slow down and look to the past for guidance, wisdom, and in order to heal.
In November, we will have two key planets in retrograde- Venus and Mercury, however, there will be a softening, and we are going to feel more at ease as we prepare to wrap up the year gone by.
At the end of October, we experienced the height of Venus Retrograde and through the first few weeks of November, she is going to be preparing herself to begin a new cycle. Venus will officially move out of retrograde on November 16th, and at this time her work will be completed.
On the same day she goes direct however, Mercury turns retrograde and will stay in this motion until December 6th.
Again, it really seems that the Universe wants us to slow down and reflect before moving ahead. The good news however, is that after this we won’t have another key planet in retrograde until March 2019.
Even though we are still working with retrograde energy through November, there is a glittering event that is really going to dominate and bring some positive energy into our lives.
This event happens on November 8 and is the move of the planet Jupiter out of Scorpio and into its home constellation of Sagittarius. This is wonderful, positive news, and is going to be one of the best aspects for the next 12 months.
While Jupiter is in Sagittarius we are going to feel expansive, abundant, positive, radiant, and we are going to feel hopeful.
There has been so much tragedy around the world and so much tension in politics, but Jupiter in Sagittarius is going to help brighten the mood, and allow us to see ways in which we can work together, rather than against each other.
The day before Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, on November 7, we also have a New Moon in the sign of Scorpio.
This New Moon does have some intensity around it, however, it is going to bring more understanding and more resolution to whatever was stirred on the Taurus Full Moon back in October.
It is also going to highlight and help wrap up the issues that were bought forward while Jupiter was in Scorpio.
While things may come to a head on this New Moon, it is likely that this climax will lead to a resolution and a way to move forward and find forgiveness.
Following this, we have the grand alignment of November 11. In numerology, the code for this day will be 111111. This is an extremely powerful code that will help to advance spiritual awakenings and unlock portals to the spirit world.
We will get a taste for this energy on November 1st also, but on the 11th we are really going to be in a place of heightened sensitivity, awareness, and creativity.
This will be a wonderful time to manifest, meditate, connect with your spirit guides, and think about ways to move forward when it comes to achieving your goals.
The next major event for November comes on the 23rd with the Full Moon in Gemini. This is a sensitive Full Moon, however it will be much more forgiving and less intense than the one we experienced in October.
While we may feel heightened emotions around this Full Moon, it also serves as a reminder to not overload our plates and to move in a more methodical, grounded pace. This really has been a major theme for 2018, and this Full Moon is going to ensure that we get the message.
Finally, the month ends on an extremely positive note with the Sun and Jupiter meeting on November 25th. This is considered one of the most special days of the year, and the Universe is going to be shining down positive energy and abundance for all of us.
While we do have some intense cosmic energies and some retrograde action, Jupiter is really the star player of November, and we are going to feel this bountiful, benevolent energy softening our wounds, softening our pain, and lifting us higher.
