November 4-10 2013 Astrology Forecast: Mercury Retrograde Ends

mercury direct u-turn jpgMercury Retrograde ends this week, clearing the decks for new ventures. Venusian sextiles to Neptune and Mercury empower creativity and communication, while a Scorpionic Sun-Saturn conjunction juices serious transformation.

Other notable “skylights” include Jupiter’s retrograde turn and a Uranus-Chiron semi-sextile.

11/4 (Mon)

Inspiration on how to take your committed partnerships to the next level is available with Uranus sextile Aquarian Juno.

11/5 (Tue)

Venus enters Capricorn on 11/5 and doesn’t come out until 1/31 – a much longer stay than usual. This is because she’ll be turning retrograde, entirely within Capricorn, 12/21 through 1/31.

During her sojourn, evaluate whether your relationships are providing a satisfactory return on investment. Solid relationship structures will benefit from additional time and energy, while unstable relationships may require repair or release.

Venus’ Capricornian marathon is a good time to realistically evaluate your finances. It’s also a great time for creative productivity!

11/6 (Wed)

To make the most of the Scorpionic Sun conjunct Saturn, take a disciplined approach to transformation. It may also help to have a plan laid out for your occult explorations, psychological processing and other Scorpionic activities. If you feel moody or depressed, getting into gear on a project or taking time for reflection may prove helpful.

11/7 (Thu)

Jupiter turns retrograde on 11/7, and will turn direct again on 3/6. This period can provide fruitful reflection on religion, the meaning of life, foreign cultures and the amount of joy and exuberance in your life.

Creative inspiration and productivity are abundantly available with Capricornian Venus sextile Neptune. This aspect also supports integrating your divine consciousness into your physical form.

11/8 (Fri)

Open communication about the things that really matter is empowered by Scorpionic Mercury sextile Capricornian Venus. Creative writing and communication are also supported.

11/9 (Sat)

Long-lasting energy is available with Virgoan Mars sextile Scorpionic Saturn. You can also precision-launch new projects with focused power.

Inspired speech and writing is available with Scorpionic Mercury trine Neptune. Communicating important truths and discussing taboo subjects are also supported by this flowing connection.

Uranus and Chiron are exactly semi-sextile today. However, they’ve been making this aspect energetically for years, and will continue making it for years to come!

So while the opportunity for breakthroughs in healing and understanding is especially strong today, you have plenty of time to enjoy enhanced wellness and wisdom. Because Uranus and Chiron are making a semi-sextile, a minor hard angle associated with irritation, these breakthroughs may include some discomfort.

11/10 (Sun)

Mercury, retrograde since 10/21, turns direct today at 4:12 PM (02°29′ Scorpio). The decks are now clear to go ahead with any project launches or major purchases that you’ve been putting off because of Mercury’s recent backward ways.

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

11/5, 11:49 am – 11/6, 4:45 pm (Capricorn)
11/8, 2:39 am – 6:31 pm (Aquarius)
11/10, 12:58 am – 9:38 pm (Pisces)

Whatever your Sun Sign, Benjamin’s forecasts can help you make the best use of the current astrological energies.

All dates and times are in the U.S. eastern time zone. Events are most powerful on the dates listed, but their influence will be active for at least several days before and after.

Everyone is affected by these global transits. However, you will be most powerfully impacted when moving planets activate sensitive points in your natal chart.
