As already was the case during the month October, Pluto will continue the trine with Jupiter, enabling new initiatives to remove structural problems in our financial and other systems. Try to stimulate them, we need them and be prepared to leave dishonest systems, favoring a happy few at the cost of earth and mankind, radically behind. The conjunction between Mercury and Venus during the first half of November is becoming exact on November 2nd, shortly after these planets entered Sagittarius. The challenge of this 1st degree of Sagittarius is to discuss in a sphere where communication will be generally peaceful and full of mutual understanding, but focused on the revelation of the essentials.
The first 10 days of November will probably give fair weather. In general the sphere will be nice and warm. On November 9th we can enjoy the fascinating view of the monthly repeating conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter in Taurus, depending on a cloudless sky. This will give whom are sensitive to this a warm earthly atmosphere. This changes on November 11th when the planet Mars enters Virgo. Mars will stay in this sign until the beginning of July 2012, and will be in the biannual retrograde period in this sign. In numerological sense November 11th will also show something remarkable (11-11-11), with many transformative signs. The sphere will appear to become much more critical with an increasing chance for verbal incidents. When the Sun makes a semi square with Pluto the planet of transformation this influence will be even stronger. From that moment we also enter the semi annual eclipse period. On November 25th we have a solar eclipse on 3rd degree of Sagittarius. According to the astrological mandala this degree is the degree of the Sagittarius Grail of philosophy of life. At a low level of cosmic consciousness this can lead to this can degenerate to fierce religious struggles. The message is to learn to stay above this level and to develop a vision of a divine state being the ultimate goal for all kinds of religion and philosophies of life. On November 24th Mercury starts to move retrograde, this time on the 21st degree of Sagittarius, the degree of higher psychic power and wisdom. Let Mercury again be our messenger of the Gods and guide us the way to a true understanding in order to turn the energy of the eclipse in a direction of a true understanding of a harmonic cosmic brotherhood. On November 26th when Venus enters Capricorn the weather will become substantial colder.
The month October appears to become a rather quiet month in fierce times, caused by the transit of Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto in Capricorn shows us failures in systems and structures (a.o. the financial system) and makes clear what should be restructured. Conservative powers will try to prevent better solutions to be introduced in order to prevent their private interests. The transit of the Sun in Libra the first part of October will put a focus on relationships. With also Mercury and Venus in this sign this will turn out to be a pleasant time in general, except there where relationships did exist too long and without a real content. In the period from October 7th up to October 23rd these will be tested and especially when from aOctober 9th Venus enters Scorpio. The Sun will join Venus on October 23rd when it also enters Scorpio. The friendly climate of being focused on the other changes totally. Superficiality will disappear and will be replaced by depth and many issues will be tested against this. The New Moon of October 26th on the 3rd degree of Scorpio is a good moment to do the test in your own personal life. According to Rudhyars astrological mandala this is the degree for the pioneers of the approaching new era. It appears to be meant that everybody in a spiritual mood will question what his/her contribution for the New Era is supposed to be.
In October Pluto makes a trine to Jupiter in Taurus. This trine will be exact on October 28th on the same day when the Sun makes an opposition with Jupiter and a sextile with Pluto. This special astrological constellation will bring us new impulses for growth but now from a purified inner wish for a better world for all mankind.
