Astrology for the Week of November 4

“Freedom is necessary for choice and choice is necessary for wisdom and growth. The sacred world of love and wisdom, fiery intelligence and passionate will, imagination and delight – is a world of freedom. It is liberating but it is also binding and connecting.” David Whyte

“The messages left by our intuition are highly personal; left at our back door step and no other, and they have to be read by the part of the mind that is particularly suited to their translation. They may deal with symbols , for example, instead of the good clear alphabets we’re used to.” Jane Roberts.

Venus is now in the fiery sign Sagittarius through the 26th. This ushers in a time that is good for travel and learning.  It is a more expansive, outwardly focused time than Venus in Scorpio with its native depth and perception. Sagittarius is a free spirited, freedom loving sign that loves new horizons  and can be restless at times. A desire for more freedom may be on the rise this month.

Later in the month Venus will get caught up in the Neptune /Jupiter square indicating it will be best to keep and eye on pragmatics and avoid idealizing things. This ongoing square has been one of the most important alignments this year and it is associated with eroding the boundary between fact and fiction.

Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio through the 21st indicating a good time to review finances and joint finances.  It’s also a good time to review what it is that you care deeply about and how that may have evolved over time. Retrograde periods are always a good time to pause, reassess and entertain other perspectives or possibilities that may elude us in the busyness  our everyday lives.

Mars is squaring Pluto this week. This combination is often in the chart of professional athletes. It’s an aspect that has a lot of drive and desire for accomplishment. A lot can be accomplished under this influence. It’s wise to use it well otherwise frustration can occur.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the veils will be thinner – it’s good good time to heed your intuition.

The Sabian symbol for Venus entering Sagittarius is,”The ocean covered with white caps.”
