Diana's Monthly Scorpio Forecast for November 2016
Until the 22nd is a powerful time for you with the Sun in your sign. A good time for taking stock and reviewing the dance of life over the past year, and also thinking about the future. In general, the way should be clearer to improve things for yourself personally and definitely to be more ‘self‘ centred, doing whatever is most supportive of physically, mentally and spiritually. Also to give more time and energy to aims and ambitions close to your heart and feel the empowerment that brings. .
MEETING AND GREETING
Until the 13th Mercury is in your sign putting you more in the stream of information exchange and mixing with others. A time to put those people skills to work as you outline intentions or ideas more clearly and accurately or listen with more care or perspicacity to what they are saying. There may be more paperwork or other things to get your head around and mental processes may be accelerated. Communications equipment, vehicles, travel or transport might also be emphasized. At times there may be so much coming at you that you feel a bit scattered so engineer quiet spaces for yourself whenever you can.
FIGURING IT OUT
From then 13th conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Revolving around material matters, or basic resources and you may be looking into how to get your ducks in a row. Thinking will revolve around essential needs and gathering information about whatever would be best for yourself or others financially/materially. Plans may focus upon certain desirable resources or practical ways of achieving this or that result. You may be wondering how you can best express yourself creatively through material objects. Also, buying/selling, renting/leasing could also be on your mind at this time. And stuff! What is of most value to you and even how can make more of your natural abilities.
(23rd-25th Saturn over Mercury: Mental pressure, or more responsibilities related to contacts, communications mental and physical. Vehicles, travel, transport or schedules may present challenges).
BUT also in the last 10 days expansive Jupiter on Saturn can mean you are on a learning curve or spreading your wings into unfamiliar territories leading to future growth and abundance. Focus and tenacity may be needed but you widen your horizons. An important teacher or teaching could come at this time.)
THE MATERIAL WORLD
Until the 12th Venus in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations or making the most of assets. Buying/selling/renting/leasing tends to go in your favour and applying for funding or investments made under this transit can prove beneficial as long as you are sensible and don’t take a wild risk. You and a friend could be getting organized materially, or expanding into new territories and enjoying the trip. In general, Venus tends to ease things materially and can open the path between money or other goodies and you but, just make sure the traffic isn’t travelling more away from you than towards you – unless this is your choice.
From the 12th Venus is in a very sociable sector of your solar chart. She can help you to be articulate in your expression and tends to deliver environments or daily encounters which are more appealing or entertaining, even exotic. Some of you could be in exchanges with others who appreciate your self-expression or there may be more interesting daily encounters or more access to the art and beauty. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. This transit could bring warm, supportive relations with siblings or soul brothers and sisters. You (and another) can do better when buying/selling/promoting etc and if you want to settle a feud or negotiate for something, then you can be very persuasive.
(In the last week there is likely to be more intensity, deeper questioning related to relationships or regarding joint or shared money or property. Someone or something bugging you …make sure you aren’t projecting your emotions on to them).
Until the 9th Mars is in your Solar communications sector accelerating mental processes and firing up the way you express yourself. A great time for getting to know people, places or new ideas.
Comings and goings may increase or you find yourself more in the stream of information exchange and this would be a good time to float a new concept or body of work. However, there may be tensions and you can feel overloaded with too much on your mind. Sometimes, it could feel that certain others are too impatient or over-assertive but, your own reactions may be too defensive or pinickity. It’s better to be measured and decisive in what you say, keeping lines of communication open rather than wasting energy wondering about someone’s deeper motives.
In general, there could be more correspondence or other types of paperwork than usual and flying hither and thither for business or personal reasons. Overall, you should start to feel more confident about making decisions or defining certain objectives more clearly. You can be proactive and successful with media, promotions, negotiations or simply speaking up for yourself in a more assertive way.
From the 9th Mars is at the root of your chart. This means you could be busier than usual in and around HQ, or because of a property or family commitments. Physical effort may be needed right in your own back yard or there is more physical demand on you because of relatives, neighbourhood or community. Decisiveness, assertiveness or more stamina may be needed because of any of these possibilities. Mars in this area could mean a lot more coming and going within a locality even if it is not your usual stamping ground or there may be more hustle and bustle around you. As always with Mars, there could be moments of tension which surface now and again and affect your mood and you may find a way to use pent up energies in a more positive manner. Skeletons may start rattling in the closet and you have to ride the waves of emotional reactions or elements from the past have more impact or relevance to the present. On the other hand you may be putting your energies into something which connects you with society’s traditions, your own background, Mother Nature or the planet as a whole. For some, parents or parenting will be emphasized – especially the male side.
From the 22nd finances, goods, property or anything which affects your material security or physical wellbeing now or in the future is likely to have your attention. So key themes are centred around ‘stuff’ – yours (or theirs), and perhaps protecting it, moving it, ditching it or acquiring more. Also seeing how to improve things in practical ways which may improve wellbeing – yours or another’s.
THE RESISTANCE OF THE INANIMATE OBJECT
Saturn is launching you into a 2 year cycle of more concentrated work related to the material/physical side of life. You can be successful but disciplined effort will be needed to manage the piggy bank and to improve quality of life or resources, whether that’s cash or vegetables. Gradually this side of things takes the shape you desire, but routine perseverance is the key as there will tend to be obstacles. Be kind to yourself, encourage yourself and don’t take your eye off the ball. Make what you have work better for you and you will build, sometimes through challenging conditions, a more comfortable reality which puts a smile on your face. Scorpios born 5th-10th November or with 13-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A CHAPTER CLOSING
Jupiter is in your 12th house, there to stay until Oct 2017.
This is a good time for quietly developing projects, following healthier, more nurturing practices, or tying up loose ends behind the scenes. For healing the consequences of the past, maybe figuring out what went wrong or why you keep falling down the same old holes in the road. You may find you are nurturing and caring for others more as they may be leaning on you more than usual.
However you are likely to grow into a deeper understanding by being the supporter in the background.
But this is also the area where you can be your own worst enemy, shooting yourself in the foot because you cannot change old habits, emotional patterns or beliefs. This transit will help you grow from within and, as all things are connected, add to the pool of knowledge and goodwill for us all no matter how insignificant or difficult it may feel to you at the time. Healing or spiritual practices or imaginative work will help you reap the benefits of this transit.
Scorpios born 2nd-10th Nov or with 10-18 degrees rising will feel the energy the most over this forecast period.
(Jupiter on Pluto in the second half of the month helps you with the power to succeed through intuitive evaluation of what really matters most at this time. There may be a feeling of things being out of your personal control, or a battle of wills so keep your integrity intact but don’t be obsessive).
