November 2019 Astrology Forecast:
Below I have re-posted the last entry from the very end of October’s forecast, as last month’s New Moon influence holds continued relevance into this month up until Tuesday, November 26th:
“…..Sunday, October 27: October’s New Moon takes place at 11:38PM EDT in sidereal Libra in Swati Nakshatra. The planetary influences at the time of the New Moon give an indication of themes that will characterize the next 30 days. On this New Moon, Venus who rules Libra, tenants the 2nd house from the Moon, along with other benefic planets Jupiter and Mercury, where this is a month characterized by blessing and achievement that is related to the gathering of the auspicious and expressive planets here. The 2nd house is a primary house of communication and the voice, where all of the uplifting planets here may bring a strong aspiration to cultivate speech that is as truthful, clear and constructive as possible. As a material house of personal effects and finances, this strong 2nd house may bring an atmosphere of gifts and generosity, as well as a time of naturally turning one’s attention towards practical considerations of money management.
The 2nd house is also one of the houses of education that governs especially ancient traditions that were passed on verbally. Today’s lunar mansion of Swati Nakshatra has associations with Saraswathi, the goddess of flowing speech and arts, where these combined considerations may bring sanctuaries of time-honored practices in the month ahead. Symbolized as a young sapling blowing in the wind and governed by airy Rahu, Swathi Nakshatra has delicate traits and a potentially flighty nature, where it is a month ahead to keep in touch with and have basic faith in one’s own resourceful courage and grounded abilities.
Sunday, November 3:
Daylight savings time ends in North America at 2AM this early morning, where the clocks are turned back one hour. Thankfully this adjustment into earlier nightfall not only grants extra time on Monday morning, but this reset to a more merciful natural clock sheds a burden of a construct that was imposed to increase factory-age productivity.
Monday, November 4:
Today Jupiter changes signs.
For the past year, since October 11, 2018, Jupiter has been in the sign of sidereal Scorpio. Today, Jupiter, changes signs and enters sidereal Sagittarius until November 20th, 2020. As the expansive and grace-bestowing planet that is known as The Great Benefic, Jupiter today enters its own sign. Here it feels fully at home, especially stable, and thus becomes capable of delivering its best effects. To read more about how this transit may affect you more individually, please scroll to the forecast for Jupiter at the bottom of this page.
Monday, November 11:
Today Mercury transits in front of the Sun.
This visually odd (or eerie) occurrence that will appear as a tiny black speck against a back-drop of the sun’s brilliance can be regarded as a type of eclipse. Mercury passes between the Sun 13 times each 100 years, where the next time this transit will take place will be 2032.
The Sun is in Libra, its weakest sign of debilitation, which adds further weight to the inauspicious potential of Mercury’s blemish. Mercury is the planet that governs information, communications and the media, where this transit suggests effects of an increased unnaturalness or manipulation around how information is conveyed within the collective, in terms of its accuracy and transparency.
Very interestingly, the last time that Mercury passed directly in front of the Sun was in May 2016. This was in the months leading right up to the last U.S. presidential election, a time infamously known for a situation that strikingly embodies these traits of Mercury’s intruding action directly over the Sun. The Sun is the planet that rules government and administration, where Mercury’s eclipsing-action took the form at that time of a highly probable deliberately engineered interference in the media (Mercury) to manipulate the outcome of the U.S. election (Sun).
Mercury’s transit over the Sun will begin today at 7:34AM EST and end at 1:04PM EST.
Tuesday, November 12:
This month’s Full Moon tales place today in sidereal Aries in the lunar mansion of Bharani Nakshatra at 8:34AM EST. This star has meanings of gestation and hidden growth or brewing situations that often get revealed with suddenness. A situation that has been quietly developing may be out in the open today with an element of the unexpected.
Saturday, November 16:
The Sun enters sidereal Scorpio: important practical beginnings are traditionally avoided on days of solar ingress.
Monday, November 25:
The Moon will pass through its monthly unsteady low-point of debilitation in early sidereal Scorpio today, with the time of deepest debilitation at 10:18PM EST. This day is well suited to an unhurried and simple schedule that has the breathing room to accommodate one’s own natural pace, possible low-energy, uneven emotions or a need for more rest.
Tuesday, November 26:
The November New Moon takes place today in sidereal Scorpio in Anuradha Nakshatra at 10:05AM.EST. The planetary influences at the time of the New Moon give an indication of the themes that will characterize the next 30 days. Today the Moon is in the lunar mansion of Anuradha Nakshtra, a community-minded star that is associated with Mitra, a compassionate patron deity of friendship, contracts and meetings. The month ahead may bring a collective setting where within striving towards practical goals there is a mood of acknowledgment and appreciation for all those who have contributed along the way.
This also may be a time of a cycle when some personal connections see a parting of ways while others deepen and develop. In this chart Mars, the ruler of the Moon sign, is in the 12th house of loss and endings.
From the Moon, there are three planets that gather in the 2nd house, where Venus, Jupiter and Saturn all sit here. The 2nd house is an especially material house of money, food and the possessions that surround a person in their daily life, where the next 30 days may be a time of sorting out and restructuring these very basic considerations. These three planets are in Sagittarius, the sign of ideals and philosophy sign, which may encourage strong guiding beliefs that direct one’s decisions and choices.
Jupiter Enters Sagittarius in November 2019:
This month Jupiter the Great Benefic planet changes signs on Monday, November 4th to enter sidereal Sagittarius until November 20, 2020. This is Jupiter’s own sign, where this planet feels fully at home, especially stable, and thus becomes capable of delivering its bests effects. As the planet of abundance, wisdom, and overall blessings, the house that coincides with the sign of Sagittarius in one's individual birth chart receives a gracious planetary boost for the next one year. To offer a general overview as to how Jupiter's transit may play out for each rising sign (ascendant), please read on. If you don’t know your Vedic ascendant (a primary consideration), then you can instead read from your Vedic Sun sign, since this functions as an alternate ascendant that is especially revealing of one’s public life, profession as well as physical health. In Vedic astrology, the Ascendant, Sun and Moon signs all provide interrelating layers of important information. Remember that Vedic astrology uses the sidereal Zodiac that is based on the backdrop of the fixed stars, instead of the western Tropical zodiac that is based on the seasons.
The dates of the Vedic Sun sign are here as follows (approximately, give or take a day or so depending on your exact birth year):
April 13- May 13 (Aries)
May 14 – June 13 (Taurus)
June 14 – July 15 (Gemini)
July 16 – August 15 (Cancer)
August 16 – September 15 (Leo)
October 16 –November 14 (Libra)
November 15 – December 14 (Scorpio)
December 15 – January 12 (Sagittarius)
January 13 – February 11 (Capricorn)
February 12 – March 13 (Aquarius)
March 14 – April 12 (Pisces)
ARIES: Jupiter's transit through the 9th house of wisdom, ethics, higher education, pilgrimage, teachers, and general Grace encourages noble undertakings motivated by a sense of dharma (or one's most innately suitable path of right action). This transit facilitates greater proximity to spiritual teachers or clarity around spiritual practice. Also, for those working in fields of higher education, this transit may be especially professionally favorable. Among one's family members, the 9th house governs one's father, where he may generally benefit this year, or this relationship becomes more significant.
TAURUS: Jupiter's transit through the deeply transformative yet intense 8th house may bring gains that come from unusual or secret sources like inheritance or receiving gifts with complex strings attached. There may be radical acts of free-thinking independence, and secretive or possibly controversial interests (like in shamanism, the occult or psychic development). As the house of the sub-conscious mind, this 8th house transit may also give an attraction to psychotherapy or unearthing the very roots of what makes one tick.
GEMINI: Jupiter's transit through the 7th house of romantic relationship and marriage encourages a love-interest commitment or may bring clearer discernment and more sensitivity in relationship, and this transit may improve the life situation of one's spouse in various ways. This is also a house of general one-to-one partnership, where this transit encourages business partnership and colleagues. For those who work intimately with others in fields such as counseling or other one-to-one therapeutic work, this transit encourages healing potential for clients and patients, as well as encourages natural suitability with them.
CANCER: Jupiter's transit takes place through the 6th house of service work, daily habits, tests of endurance and efforts to improve one’s station in life. This influence may bring uniquely fitting opportunities to be of caring service to others and new capacity to face life’s challenges with patience, enthusiasm and compassion for all. Those in healing, health care or social work professions may especially benefit professionally from this transit. There may be the welcome reversal of a nagging life situation or chronic health condition that is born out of new steadfast resolve to overcome unproductive tendencies, as this transit encourages fresh and welcome understanding of the smaller daily routines or attitudes that have shaped a bigger life situation.
LEO: Jupiter's transit through the expansive 5th house of creativity, intellect and devotion may motivate one to be a student for the love of it. As a primary house of poorva punya or 'past-life merit', this transit encourages the expression of unique and uncanny creative gifts that may have been cultivated over lifetimes. This is also the house of children, where Jupiter's transit may support fertility, benefit one's young ones or enhance one's relationship with them. It is also a house of financial speculation, which may give an opportunity or desire to invest money in stocks or other forms of taking a gamble.
VIRGO: Jupiter’s transit through the 4th house of one's environment, land, home (and other fixed assets) as well as vehicle related matters may bring changes in this area in the form of a possible move, gain, or significant home improvements. Among one's other family members, this transit is over the house of one’s mother, where either this person’s life situation or the relationship with her may undergo a transformation.
LIBRA: Jupiter through the 3rd house of short travels, uprooting and enterprising energy may take one to new locations on trips, and give one the opportunity and personal drive to learn a new set of practical skills, especially those that involve manual technique, such as playing musical instruments or painting. Also, this may be a good transit for those who are writers, and also for those in technology professions this transit may be professionally fortunate. Among various family members, this transit may also generally benefit one's siblings (especially those younger).
SCORPIO: Jupiter rules the 2nd house, whose various meanings include speech, food and money. This transit encourages more eloquent and conscious communication, fitting improvements to one's diet, nicer personal belongings, and the inspired building of prosperity. The 2nd house also governs ancient wisdom that was originally passed down verbally, where one may become committed to studying a subject that has a strong sense of lineage and tradition. With the house of speech empowered, there may be a natural tendency to speak up freely with greater clarity and discernment.
SAGITTARIUS: Jupiter's transit over the 1st house of the physical self imparts stronger personal autonomy and direction, and this transit may increase overall vitality, help stabilize a health condition, support enthusiasm, confidence, and impart a deeper maturity and a clearer sense of individuality. The 1st house represents the chart’s owner and is a microcosm of the whole chart, so this transit may be beneficial in numerous ways.
For those with the Moon in Sagittarius: while this transiting effect might seem quite counter-intuitive, the transit of Jupiter over the house of the natal Moon itself is one of the fewer instances where this is actually regarded as one of the less-favorable transiting placements of Jupiter.
CAPRICORN: Jupiter's transit takes place over the 12th house that governs places of retreat or seclusion, foreign travel, the ego’s death, and expenditures of all kinds. This may bring necessary and desirable endings, bring financial spending under control through simplification, and may give a needed and deeply meaningful stepping away from the main-stream world. Those who work in fields that involve hospitals, monasteries, spas, or regular foreign travel may especially benefit professionally from this transit. Since Jupiter governs the 4th house of residence for this ascendant, this transit gives a higher probability of a move or travel.
AQUARIUS: Jupiter's transit over the abundant 11th house of gains and wealth, and friends and community brings more potential to feel more socially connected, to be drawn to big group projects, and to fulfill one's strongest worldly desires. For those in non-profit fields who receive professional endowments and financial grants this transit may be especially helpful. This is the house of one's older sibling, where this family member also receives overall benefit from this transit, which may improve the relationship with them or this family member’s life situation.
PISCES: Jupiter's transit through the 10th house of profession and public life is likely to breathe new life and opportunity as well as creativity into one's work life, bring more luck to interactions with the general public, more protection to one’s reputation, and may bring new avenues for professional networking and promotion. This is a year to step into greater personal authority. Also, since Jupiter governs the financial 2nd house for this ascendant, there may be a pay-raise at work, or the start of receiving incoming for a work project.
