NOVEMBER 2022 ASTROLOGY
USING VEDIC ASTROLOGY
Major planetary events are happening up in the sky this month. Time for LARGE SOUL GROWTH! Jupiter and Saturn will be Direct and Mars is Retrograde, PLUS a FIERCE Lunar Eclipse in Aries!
By the last week of November, all zodiac signs will experience a significant shift in their thoughts in certain areas of life, making important life choices. This is because Jupiter will move directly in Pisces on November 24th. This happens once in 12 years.
This once-in-12-years event of Jupiter in Pisces is happening in the sky along with the once-in-29-years event of Saturn in Capricorn. Jupiter is the ancient ruler of Pisces so this will bring a special spiritual aspect to our growth.
Saturn RULES Capricorn so expect it to do the work it was designed to do, changing us individually and the world around us. Belief systems and deeply rooted problems in the world will be opened up and challenged.
Jupiter AND Saturn are two slow-moving planets and when combined at this time in the world, will make a powerful statement. Such combinations in the sky will not happen again in 59 Years. The last time they were together like this was in 1963!
These highly influential planets are responsible for the Dharma and Karma of each individual. Dharma refers to one’s duty in this life; the reason for your incarnation. Karma refers to someone’s day-to-day actions and the negative or positive obligations these actions bring about, ultimately effecting one’s Dharma. In a sense, dharma could be seen as one’s lifelong task and karma the steps that one has to take to complete the task.
November 8—Full Moon Lunar Eclipse—Moon Conjunct Uranus SUDDEN UNEXPECTED CHANGES!
On November 8, the Full Moon Eclipse along with Rahu (known as the North Node in Western Astrology) will be in Aries at 22° and all of this happens with a Uranus Conjunction—ALSO in Aries at 22 DEGREES!
In astrology, 22 Degrees represents WORLD EVENTS. This powerful trifecta will bring SUDDEN UNEXPECTED CHANGE, which indicates a new beginning in the world and in our lives.
This UNIQUE Lunar Eclipse will be seen in most parts of Northern and Eastern Europe, Asia, Australia, the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean, North America, and South America. Note, if you are in Los Angeles on November 8, 2022, the Lunar Eclipse begins at 12:02 AM Pacific Time and ends at 5:56 AM.
ALSO on November 8- Mercury Cazimi
Right under the Blood Moon Eclipse, Mercury will align with the Sun. This event is known as Mercury Cazimi and indicates a new cycle of awareness, mental growth, and deeper awareness. As Mercury aligns with the Sun, we can gain new clarity and begin to see things from a new and sharper perspective. Things that were cloudy or confusing can become clearer. This can be heightened by the Eclipse energy, which can also illuminate and unlock a higher truth. Be sure you are speaking and communicating your truth under this energy, as any lies or deceits can be more easily exposed.
Now, compared to the Solar Eclipse on October 25 in Libra, which was about relationships, this Lunar Eclipse is about ourselves, who YOU are as an individual. Who do you want to be going forward? More compassionate, more rock solid, more empathy? Time to REINVENT yourself!
This great time of awakening brings out THE ESSENSE of who you are, your authentic self, in this lifetime! Doing a small personal ritual on the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, like lighting a candle or writing an intention down on paper and burning it, can help you to engage the energies of release and usher in new changes.
November 11—December 5 –Venus Transits Into Scorpio
Venus is all about relationships and love. Scorpio is ruled not only by Pluto—but also by Mars too – and with Mars Retrograde, expect relationships to be seen in a new light.
During this time relationships that are superficial or based on surface-level emotions won’t be sustained. This is a time to go deep and connect with people in your life that are sensitive and spiritual in nature. Venus, the Planet of Love is also in detriment in Scorpio, which means it's at its weakest, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it causes us to shy away from any relationships that are not of serious nature.
November 13—Mars Retrogrades Transits from Gemini into Taurus Mars remains in Retrograde until January 12, 2023 – then goes direct in Taurus until March 12, 2023. During this time expect old wounds to resurface. This retrograde brings out something from the past. Watch anger! What’s under the rage? Hurt and pain. Great time to deal with past pain.
Once Mars begins its Retrograde in Taurus from November 13 to January 12, watch becoming stubborn. Taurus represents finances and family and this is a time there will be concern with security. The last time Mars was retrograde in these particular signs was in 2008 and then again prior to that around 1990 to 1991. Those years saw major financial crises, tension and recession.
Mars Retrograde is a time when our energy and actions are busy and distracted. During this time manage your emotions and keep your cool. The world is going through an enormous transition. During this time be careful; show patience, love and tolerance to others. Rather than acting aggressively, be the first to step down and show compassion to others.
November 13—Mercury Transits into Scorpio
Increases your thinking capability and your confidence. Gives us the power to overcome challenges with regard to writing, studying, communications. This could signal a need for some quiet time to reflect and analyze on the cost to benefit ratio that our current activities are outputting.
November 16—December 16 Sun in Scorpio
In Vedic Astrology, this is the time when the Sun moves into Scorpio. Scorpio is one of the only signs ruled by two planets, Mars and Pluto. Scorpios crave self-growth, and both planets urge them to learn more. Pluto is responsible for Scorpios' need for transformation, while Mars gives Scorpios their irresistibility and fiery aggression. This will be a time to analyze, negotiate and have your voices heard.
November 19- Mars Retrograde (Taurus) Square Neptune (Aquarius)
You might find yourself off track or deal with a loss of focus. Something you thought was organized might get messy or delayed. This is an aspect that may tire you out or drain your energy. Taking time to slow down, spend time with yourself, dream and rest.
November 23 –New Moon in Scorpio
The several days leading up to this November 23 new Moon could feel draining and marks the time just prior to Thanksgiving in the U.S. This New Moon is about resting and feeling gratitude. Lots of emotions with this aspect!
November 24 – Jupiter Direct in Pisces
As Jupiter begins to move forward in his own water sign of Pisces, the final sign of the zodiac, we will gain universal perspective that allows us to first dissolve old patterns and then reformulate our lives. We begin to see our way forward again after a difficult few months.
November will be a time for reflection and reviewing different life areas. If you are struggling with your career or relationship, this month will help you better understand.
