November 2016

The eleventh month of 2016 is a dynamic month.
November 2016 is mainly marked by the growing influence of Jupiter in Libra squaring Pluto in Capricorn, highlighted by their exact square on November 24, 2016.
On that day, Venus in Capricorn conjuncts Pluto on November 24, 2016 and forms a square to Uranus on November 29, 2016.

The year 2016 shows a hot Autumn. But how about a fiery Winter?
The opposition from Jupiter in Libra with Uranus in Aries on December 24, 2016 closes this year with fireworks.
Saturn in Sagittarius forms a semi-sextile to Pluto in Capricorn in the middle of November 2016 and forms a Trine in Fire with Uranus in Aries at the end of December 2016.
Transiting Mars in Aquarius is in semi-sextile with Pluto and sextile Uranus in the first week of December 2016.
Mercury in Capricorn at 15º Capricorn is in retrograde on December 19, 2016 and at is that time almost exact conjunct Pluto in Capricorn …
Shortly after that, Uranus in Aries awakes again from its retrograde motion ...
All these aspects are indicating that the Autumn of 2016 will become an important time in our history.

But first, let’s go back to November 2016 ....

In the first half of November 2016, Venus in Sagittarius is in mutual reception with Jupiter in Libra. The sign of Jupiter is hosting Venus and Libra, the sign of Venus is hosting Jupiter.
This mutual cooperation leads to effective cooperation in the financial world which is good news.

On the 4th and 5th November 2016, the annual Taurid Meteor-shower takes place in the constellation of Taurus. The Taurids consist of 5 to 10 meteors per hour. The peculiarity of this meteor shower is that they fall into two distinct parts. The first consists of dust from the asteroid 2004 TG10. The second stream consists debris coming from the comet Encke 2P.
The Taurids visit us every year from early September to early December in the constellation of Taurus.

On November 8, 2016 the presidential election take place in the United States.

On November 10, 2016, Mars enters the air sign of Aquarius.
Mars will be traveling through Aquarius until December 19, 2016. Mars in Aquarius gives a desire for independence and resistance against authority. Mars wants to learn from experience, so people push their boundaries. Results can be both constructive and destructive. An innovative period can turn into rebellion and revolution. Mars in Aquarius wants progress and especially this period will be marked by the threat of war and muscle flexing.

On November 13, 2016, Vens enters the earthly realm of Capricorn.
Venus in Capricorn represents the material world, status and wealth. While Venus is in Capricorn, we want to hold on to what we have. This translates itself into pettiness, jealousy and excessive concern for property and material goods.
This energy of Venus in Capricorn remains until December 7, 2016.

On November 13, 2016, Mercury rushes in the fire sign of Sagittarius. Mercury leaves Sagittarius on December 2, 2016 to begin its fourth period of retrogradation in Capricorn from December 19, 2016 until the beginning of January 2017.
In Sagittarius, our swift messenger Mercury is searching for the ultimate truth. In this period, whistle-blowers, Anonymous and Wikileaks come up with more eye-openers and revealing news.

On November 14, 2016, the second consecutive Super Moon takes place, the Full Moon at 22º in the earth sign of Taurus. This large and bright Full Moon is with a distance of 356.511 km closest ever to our Earth!

On 16 and November 17th, 2016 the annual Leonid Meteor Shower takes place in the constellation of Leo.
During the Leonid Metor Shower, about 15 meteors per hour fall from the sky at its peak. The Leonids are dust particles from the tail of the comet Tempel-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1865. The Leonids return every year in November, from November 6th to November 30th.

Neptune remains stationary at 9° in Pisces this month. On this degree, Neptune thus triggers the Solar Eclipse of September 1, 2016 at 9° Virgo, the opposite sign of Pisces. Neptune on the axis Pisces/Virgo reflects the instability that we are currently experiencing in the world.
Many people have lost their way and are drifting between heaven and earth.
Since February 2012, Neptune is traveling through its own constellation of Pisces. Until the end of January 2026, this voyage strengthens themes that Neptune and Pisces represent: inspiration, caring, creativeness, media, everything that has to do with water, surrendering, spirituality, nature, environment, climate, sensitivity and empathy. But Neptune in Pisces mean also victimization, anxiety, burn-out, escapism, vagueness, misdirection, drug or alcohol abuse. These themes intensify especially when Neptune is in retrograde.

On November 20, 2016 Neptune comes to live at 9º Pisces after its long period of retrogradation. Read more about Neptune turning direct under NEWS on this website.
From November 14 to November 24, 2016, Neptune is an exact conjunction with the North Node in Virgo. This opposition teaches us an important lesson about how to express sensitivity, intuition and connection to the universe on this earth. This opposition is a great opportunity for growth and inspiration for anyone who is working with creativity and spirituality and wants to make a difference is this divided world.
This spiritual influence continues until the end of the year 2016.

On November 24, 2016 an exact square is formed between Jupiter on Libra and Pluto in Capricorn at 16º on the axis Libra/Capricorn. Between March 7 and April 14, 2017 and a third time between July 23 and August 11, 2017, once again Jupiter and Pluto will cross planetary swords.
On Earth, this is reflected in a battle for justice. Human rights versus abuse of power from the establishment.
When fundamental principles can not be ensured, rebellions become inevitable. Whether this actually turns into rebellion depends largely on the goodwill of the people.
Either way, Jupiter squaring Pluto will lead to a political landslide all over the world.
Jupiter in Libra squaring Pluto in Capricorn describes the disproportion of wealth in the world.
These planetary struggle is also about tolerance. To what extent are we willing to accept dissidents for who they are?
Jupiter squaring Pluto can lead to extreme religious intolerance and fanaticism.
Tolerance, openess to new ideas and showing respect for others is not evident with this powerful challenge between Pluto and Jupiter.
Religious dogmas or political manipulation could create major conflicts in the world. The diplomatic energy of Jupiter in Libra can not compete with the transformative power of Pluto in Capricorn. Compromising becomes impossible. Problems have to be tackled at root and branch. This will be the only solution to break the deadlock.
This square encourages willfulness. With this planetary aspect people are pushy, demand public participation, don’t care about social standards and tell others what to do. People seems to be taking the law into its own hands in various cases.
Jupiter square Pluto is often "a bridge too far."
Our society is based on values, rights and obligations. But also rules.
If a treshold is passed, there is usually no turning back.
Jupiter square Pluto is a race to the bottom. Not everyone can withstand this pressure of “the law of the strongest”.
Chances are that a terrorist attack will shake the world during this period.
The influence of the square between Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn from November 19, 2016 until June 16, 2017 continues to concern people’s minds in the world.
So be wary of this influence of the power struggle between Jupiter and Pluto this month, the rest of the year and in 2017.

There are more planetary challenges on the cosmic menu.
Jupiter in Libra is growing to an opposition with Uranus in Aries.
This opposition increases the need for personal freedom and starting over.
We can’t go on the way it is.
Enough is enough!
This opposition will mark 2017 for most of the year.
Saturn in Sagittarius will often be acting as a planetary arbitrator calling both parties to order in a positive way.

On November 29, 2016 there is a New Moon on 7º in the fire sign Sagittarius.

I wish you all an inspiring month of November!
