This month is one of consolidation and renewal for you, Pisces, with implications for beliefs, travel, educational experiences, and worldview. You are coming off an October month of internal exploration and reviewing and potentially revising your approach to intimacy and personal evolution, in search of a more complete integration of inner and outer realities. Your communication over recent weeks may have felt a little scattered and yet also inspired. Your intuition has been on overdrive lately, continuing into the current month; this has helped to inform you regarding a deeper truth within. There is more to be learned this way when you allow, as the Jefferson Airplane was able to articulate during the iconic 1960s, your sense of “logic and proportion” to fall “soggy dead.” In many ways, your deepest principles have been plumbed over the past two years of 2020 and 2021, and you are slowly coming to reflect these, to the exclusion of early conditioning and consensus thought. You might have been distracted in the past from fulfilling your most vital life goals but, increasingly, you are not letting yourself be side-tracked anymore.

Mercury’s extended stay and recent retrograde in the sign of Libra might have helped you understand the importance of staying diplomatic, especially in regard to your close relationships. Your natural inclination towards compromise and your ability to choose peace even when things don’t completely go your way have likely prevented a few confrontations. Your desire to see things from various perspectives continues to be highlighted in the weeks ahead with the Sun and Mars transiting in Scorpio, corresponding to your beliefs and worldview. You may also, over the past few weeks, have felt like digging deeper by asking questions that no one else dares to ask.
The Scorpio New Moon takes place on November 4th and signals the beginning of a new cycle that relates to education, philosophy, travel, or anything else that could broaden your intellectual framework. You might feel as though events are conspiring to help you better understand what’s happening in your world. The New Moon also opposes rebel Uranus, which might bring some unforeseen factors into the mix, concerning your opinions and new, perhaps startling, information, or perhaps related to transportation and communication. Being flexible is always an asset and now particularly so. Exchanging ideas with others could bring illuminating insights. Whatever you initiate at this time could feel somewhat foreign or different than what you are used to, and you do well to try to stay as open as you can to the strangeness. Keeping an open mind could also bring opportunities for new experiences and ensure that you get the most out of your life right now.
The beginning of November could also bring some form of transitional circumstances. Mercury enters Scorpio on the 5th, joining Mars and the Sun already transiting there. Venus also enters Capricorn on the 5th, corresponding to your societal connections and your future plans, where she will be transiting for an exceptionally long time, until March 2022, due to her moving retrograde in late December lasting for most of January. Venus will therefore be in Capricorn for the next seventeen weeks which means you will likely have the opportunity in January to reassess your dreams and aspirations in a big way. Venus often relates to what we value and how we find our sense of self-worth, and in Capricorn could bring questions of belonging and community prompting you to revise where and with whom you want to be.
In this first week of the current month, Mercury and Venus form a supportive sextile as they enter new signs which means it might be easier to see things from a different angle even if you’re walking on foreign territory.
Mercury catches up with Mars in Scorpio as they both come into a square with Saturn in Aquarius on the 9th and 10th which could bring up tension between an old mode of being and a new awareness emerging. You might have a hard time knowing exactly what you want at this time. You could feel pushed into a corner or conflicted between what you’ve always done and new professional or intellectual challenges knocking at your door. This is part of a longer shedding process that is preparing the ground for when Saturn enters Pisces in 2023. Modes of being that had worked until now may not be aligned with your beliefs anymore and this period may be more about trusting the process currently occurring than trying to push in the same old direction.
Mid-month, the Sun in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces, squares Jupiter in Aquarius, and sextiles Pluto in Capricorn which could bring a renewed sense of faith and directionality.
On the 19th, the Taurus Full Moon – which is also a partial Lunar Eclipse – occurs. This is a significant event for you, that could bring new information that changes your current situation. You may get your ideas or beliefs challenged. However, this could be the beginning of a stimulating period of exchange and conversations with others that allows you to see things from various novel angles. This is the first eclipse of several occurring on the Taurus/Scorpio axis, including in next spring These eclipses may carry with them radical new ways of looking at the world and prompt you towards more experimental and innovative ways of participating in society.
The Sun enters Sagittarius on the 21st and Mercury follows suit on the 24th which brings your attention to the vocational or public aspects of your life. With the South Node also transiting in Sagittarius, you may be saying goodbye to a career trajectory that no longer suits you as new challenges or opportunities emerge. Sagittarius season represents a transitional time of the year as well and this is also the time between eclipses. It might be best to take this time period for what it is and let the pieces fall where they may before drawing any hard conclusions.
The last seven days of November presents you with a host of supportive aspects that can help you trust the process even if things are not clear as you would like. Sometimes it’s not so much about changing your external circumstances as it is about adjusting your internal framework and perceptions to help you renew alignment with your higher intuition.
