In my house, spooky season doesn’t end with Halloween. In fact, we celebrate the chills and thrills right up until Thanksgiving. It might be unusual, but this year the cosmos seems to agree. As the chill of winter slowly creeps into the air, cosmic creepy-crawlies are continuing their dance.
This month we have a piercing stellium in Scorpio, which involved Mercury, Mars, and the Sun. And to add to the tension, these planets receive a square from Saturn and an opposition from Uranus. And just as November brings us the death of our gardens and the retreat of sunshine, so too does the sky bring us a season of endings. But as scary as it sounds, endings can be a wonderful thing. Endings free you to focus on the future. And all things must die if they want to be reborn.
Luckily, this somber mood isn’t the only game in town. As Venus moves into Capricorn on the 5th, she’ll be moving in tandem with Mercury, which enters Scorpio on the same day. Their sextile reminds us to focus on the beauty of what remains.
And near the end of the month, the tone totally changes as the Sun and Mercury move into Sagittarius, and nearly every aspect in the sky is pleasant and smooth. It’s the perfect mood to kick off the holiday season!
But in the meantime, we have a dark forest to travel. For your personal roadmap, check out the horoscope page!
