This upcoming week is like…
Not to jump too far ahead here, but not only do we have a New moon this week, we have the moon’s nodes changing up as well as Jupiter; Jupiter going into it’s home sign of Sagittarius. Also, Uranus is going back into Aries for a bit while still retrograde. The North Node is going from Leo to Cancer, the South Node from Aquarius to Capricorn. While Jupiter changes signs approximately every year, the moon’s nodes change every year and a half… and to sound like a broken record… it really is a big deal. The nodes have a karmic type of influence on us. You can find clues to your own destiny in life as well as what you could have spent your past lives contending with by your personal birth placements of the nodes, and personally the moon’s nodes are probably my favorite thing to dive into when doing someone’s natal chart reading.
Things have felt so heavy recently and we’ve all been dealing with a lot. Many of us want to put the sole blame on Venus retrograde, but I’m finally calling shenanigans on that. It’s everything! On Monday, November 5th we get dealt another round of deeply repressed feelings coming up to the surface, catching us off guard again. If we aren’t careful it can lead to some destructive behaviors from intense reactions. But if we choose to harness this energy wisely, we can spread hope. It could feel a bit like movie-grade purgatory in our surroundings lately and this stagnant energy is calling for re-evaluation of our faith and beliefs: inner and outer. If you feel up to grabbing the opportunity to be direct and assertive in addressing emotional needs, go for it because now is the time!

Uranus in Taurus squares the Leo North Node to the exact degree at 12:58PM EST the afternoon of Tuesday, November 6th, one hour before Uranus heads back into Aries. This is Leo’s way of going out with a bang as the North Node enters the sign of Cancer shortly after this aspect. The universe has shaken you to awaken you to build yourself up. The entire point of Leo’s North Node position was to assert your truth, show the world who you are, and to follow your passion. We are beginning the transition of the nodes to the neighboring signs.
On top of that, we are already feeling emotionally charged. We have the urge to reach out to others on this day, as our senses of sensitivity and emotional tensions have peaked and we have to choose whether we want to seek to have more of an understanding or react using snap-judgements through fear based pain and projections. The moon’ nodes change on this day and the North Node begins its transit in Cancer, the South Node in Capricorn.
When the North Node was in Leo, South Node Aquarius; the entire theme was about being in the spotlight, exposing our truths and focusing more on the self through being bold and courageous and less self-conscious about others’ opinions of us. Now that the North Node moves into Cancer on this day, we begin to crave the feelings of safety, security and nurturing. It’s now a time to tone down the loudness of the lion’s roar and turn inwards of the crab shell where we can flourish while we work on our sense of self-love, self-worth, engaging in inner child work, shadow work and healing. Leo North Node was about being loud and proud; Cancer North Node now wants to quietly retreat and engage in TLC to heal the self as well as others. The lessons for this next year and a half is to be kind to one another, leaving the need to be right all of the time, the “I don’t give a fuck” cold-hearted tribe is dead and gone. Caring is the ‘in’ now. Having a heart is what matters the most and is really what’s cool. Not being a heartless dick.

The New Moon in Scorpio occurs on Wednesday, November 7th at 11:01AM EST. Now is the time where even more will be revealed, and just when you thought Venus retrograde had already completed that, surprise! More is dug up from the surface. The work on ourselves never truly ends and thus we can always remain a student of life. On this day, abrupt yet promising occurrences could strike but it’s smart to look before you leap on an impulsive whim. On that same note, harsh skepticism isn’t going to be handing you any blessings either, so try for a happy balance. It’s an opportune time to forge your desirable path forward, implementing the lessons you’ve already gained knowledge from during the Venus retrograde portion through the sign of Scorpio. It’s also a good time to tap into your creative side, write out your new moon intentions and affirming self-love.

On Thursday, November 8th we are given the chances to heal the emotional baggage we have been carrying so that we can finally release it. Anger can rise up so remember to exercise caution and pay extra attention while doing things such as driving and not act on impulsive risk taking gestures. On that same note, be sure not to take on anybody else’s shit… that being, don’t let people unload their anger on you. Stand up for yourself in a tactful and direct way. They don’t have to like it, and you don’t have to care.
You’ll be given the chance to use this positive way of asserting yourself for good towards others who deserve it through your generosity. Also, being able to reframe your circumstances to manifest the type of goals you want to achieve in the future.

Friday, November 9th sounds like we are going to be super confused, but at least our head and heart will be on the same page throughout. With a few Sagittarius placements now, we are craving more independence, becoming more free-spirited and putting our faith in the universe because on this day, things are bound to get a little fuzzy mentally. We are feeling particularly sensitive and feeling strong emotions, and we have to watch out that people around us don’t take advantage of that. This is not a day to get drunk or use any type of escapism from your problems as it will only makes things worse. Our thoughts will be a bit distorted as it is with afflicted Neptune in the mix, so stick to the facts today and that’s it.

Saturday, November 10th stays relatively quiet until the evening hours where tempers can flare again, and the key to avoiding this happening to you personally is the ability to look at yourself and acknowledging your own downfalls: personal accountability. Find the source of the anger being triggered within you and the cause beneath it instead of lashing out at an undeserving victim. If you are on the receiving end of this, instead of engaging do this: back away, and silently try understanding their point of view. Come from a place of love to the best of your ability. And enforce some strong boundaries, of course. You’re not a doormat. Have the confidence in yourself to be able to walk away without needing to have the last word.
There are however changes on the horizon for the better as this week wraps up. Look out for signs from the universe because they will show!

We have an easy Sunday, November 11th because we’re feeling relatively easy-going, confident, stable and secure, calm and relaxed. We are able to release past guilt and remorse and see the value in the lesson of our experiences. This sense of emotional maturity gives us newfound appreciation for what we’ve gone through.
