November opens with another iteration of the Uranus-Pluto square, this decade’s most powerful astrological event! This square, #4 of 7, lands us smack in the middle of this time of intense revolutionary transformation.
The intensity persists with a Scorpio solar eclipse on 11/3, while “challenge for growth” is energized by four T-squares — with three peaking the last week of November.
Mercury Retrograde ends on 11/10. There are also three other planetary reversals this month: Jupiter turns retrograde, while Neptune and Chiron station direct. We also have a Full Moon in Taurus and the Sun entering Sagittarius.

The Story So Far
As November opens, we have four retrograde planets: Mercury thru 11/10, Neptune thru 11/13, Chiron thru 11/19 and Uranus thru 12/17. And the pervasive energies of revolutionary transformation (a Uranus-Pluto square), as well as universal love, compassion and spiritual awakening (Neptune in Pisces), remain powerful for years to come!
It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during these times. “Business as usual” is the best strategy for these periods, which occur when the Moon has made its last major Ptolemaic aspect but has not yet moved into the next sign.
