Jane Lyle's Cosmic Weather horoscope
Saturday 11th November:
There’s A Lot Going On!
Without doubt, it’s a busy time in the cosmos. Here are three significant astrological signposts this weekend:
1) Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries for the final time
This refreshing and constructive link between sensible, mature Saturn and lively, inventive Uranus has been a key pattern during 2017. Its first exact appearance was on Christmas Day, 2016.
Saturn and Uranus are dancing around all month long, making this a potentially positive phase for new ideas, product launches, coming up with fresh, imaginative ways to look at old problems, or bring cutting edge ideas into practical reality.
Saturn and Uranus meet at 25 degrees, slowly moving apart until November’s end. If you have planets or points between 24 – 28 degrees in your own horoscope, you’re likely to be in a good place to blend old and new, or traditional and modern in some way that benefits you and others.
2) November’s Moon Wobble
Today, 11th November, we have a Moon Wobble, which is - technically – when the Sun aligns in one way or another with the Moon’s Nodes. This time, the Sun is in Scorpio, squaring off with the Nodes in Leo and Aquarius.
Moon Wobbles signal upheavals, dramas, and turbulence – emotions can feel stronger, and logical thinking weaker in the days before, and for several days afterwards. So the wobbly window to watch is from around 8th November – 15th November.
It’s not really the right time for taking important decisions that will have a lasting impact on our lives. Our thinking may be out of synch with what’s favourable in the long run. Resolving to stay calm and open-minded is a helpful way to negotiate this bumpy phase. This could require some effort.
And, just as during eclipse seasons, a Moon Wobble also signifies stormy weather, wild weather events, and often highlights the awesome, dramatic powers of nature.
The Moon’s Mean Nodes are currently at 20 degrees of Leo and Aquarius.
3) Big Love – Venus conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio
It’s always a special moment when the goddess of love dances with the king of the skies. Here is Venus in Scorpio, meeting with Jupiter for a glimpse of graceful hope and joy in all our romantic and social relationships. And perhaps a little smouldering passion in the shadows too.
Yet, with planets in Scorpio there could be a sting in the tail, jealousy can expand as easily as affection – but not if we’re trying our best to be aware of what’s going on.
This can be a delightful time of serendipity, so do watch for little opportunities or chance encounters – what develops from these could be very favourable to you, or even offer ways to increase your income. Scorpio is a financial sign, and Venus rules money - sometimes Venus in Scorpio likes to say ‘ker-ching’.
Financial affairs linked to foreign investments, overseas projects, or foreign business partners should thrive at this time.
Venus and Jupiter can also be giddily extravagant and hedonistic, so possibly this isn’t the ideal time to go shopping. Why not enjoy some sumptuous art, a pleasurable experience, or a stunning landscape instead?
Venus and Jupiter align between 5 – 7 degrees of Scorpio. If you have planets, points, or angles at those degrees in Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn or Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces in your own personal horoscope you may sense this seductive energy more than most. If you have planets in Leo or Aquarius, this could be a pivotal moment for you.
Venus and Jupiter align in Scorpio between 11th and 13th November.
