Here is the Psychic Scoop Weekly Astrology Forecast for the week of Nov 20, 2016 – Nov 26, 2016:
We start this week on Sunday with Neptune turning direct (after five long months in retrograde motion). Neptune is at home in Pisces (the sign it rules), and this forward motion inspires us to realign ourselves with our higher ideals.
Neptune in Pisces asks us to step outside of ourselves long enough to think about what we can do the make the world a better place. It’s about putting ourselves in other people’s shoes, striving to understand where they’re coming from, and being willing to accept them even when we don’t understand.
It’s about tapping into the collective unconscious and exploring our intuition. It’s about dreams, visions, illusions and psychic perceptions. It’s a good transit for accessing your imagination and bringing it to life through Piscean forms of creativity, such as song, dance, art, poetry or photography.
Neptune will continue to move forward through Pisces (the sign it co-rules with Jupiter) until June of 2017.
Also on Sunday, Mars inconjuncts the North Node (and forms a corresponding aspect — a semi-sextile — to the South Node). It will also semi-sextile Neptune, since Neptune and the South Node are current conjunct.
This set of transits can be somewhat sobering. The inconjunct to the North Node can see you feeling out of step with your goals and frustrated by what feels like questionable timing. The semi-sextile to Neptune and the South Node can see you feeling apprehensive or even melancholy.
You may not have a lot of energy and feel like staying close to home. These transits may not be good for socializing or partying, but they are good for paying attention to your body and heeding your inner voice.
The Sun moves into Sagittarius on Monday. Sagittarius is the sign associated with expansion, evolution and growth. This transit evokes a shift in consciousness toward higher mind pursuits and may have you thinking about brushing up on your studies or pursuing new information and knowledge first hand. You may be thinking about going back to school or taking a trip abroad.
The Sun in Sagittarius archetype is associated first and foremost with personal expansion. How you manifest that will depending on your own evolutionary state, as well as your current focus and interests. You may experience an increased need for freedom and independence during this time in order to facilitate that expansion, through broadening your awareness of worldly affairs or re-evaluating your belief systems.
This theme continues into Tuesday with a nice Mercury / Jupiter sextile. This aspect is good for communicating your needs to another. It is good for writing, speaking, studying, learning and teaching. It can keep things interesting and can see you feeling inspired and optimistic about where you’re heading.
This aspect is also said to be lucky. It’s a light-hearted and engaging aspect that emphasizes sharing, learning and exchanging ideas. It says you can keep things interesting without going too deep; you can have playful and pleasant encounters with others without worrying about stepping on anyone’s toes
Things get a little more serious on Wednesday when Mercury conjuncts Saturn.This aspect is focused and disciplined, even in sunny, optimistic Sagittarius. It’s good for making plans or ironing out important details. You could be putting a dent in any research you’re doing that involves scientific or step-by-step analysis.
You may feel impatient with those who want to engage you in casual or superficial conversation. You are going to be more interested in serious (philosophical) discussions.
Speaking of serious discussions though, these can get a lot more intense on Thursday, when the ongoing Jupiter / Pluto square finally becomes exact. This aspect has been moving into position for some time, and can manifest as conflicts or power struggles.
You may find yourself dealing with people who are self-righteous, judgmental or even fanatical about their belief systems. You may also have to look at areas that you yourself have been rigid and unwilling to listen to another’s point of view. This is not the time to get into heated political or philosophical debates you will find that the line is drawn firmly in the sand on both sides.
This is going to be especially important to keep in mind for those in the US sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family members.
Venus and Pluto form a conjunction on Friday and together they square Jupiter and the Moon. This is a highly seductive set of aspects with the Venus / Pluto portion focusing on the urge to merge and the Moon / Jupiter portion investing itself emotionally.
Don’t be surprised if a partner or love interest starts trying to get frisky with you. Venus conjunct Pluto is an alluring, captivating aspect that is known for its sex appeal and rarely fails to deliver. The Moon / Jupiter conjunction (in relationship-oriented Libra) brings a playful adventurous and romantic quality to the mix, so don’t be afraid to take advantage of the energy and spice up your love life.
We end the week on Saturday, with Mercury trining Uranus and squaring Chiron. As Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, bringing them together in a harmonious (trine) aspect allows for a much more natural route to that higher consciousness. This aspect is great for brainstorming and thinking outside the box. With these two planets in fire signs (Sagittarius and Aries respectively), you should be passionate about your ideas and the way that you express them.
The square to Chiron though can be a little more difficult. It can bring feelings of guilt and regret to the surface. You may be questioning whether you’ve done enough to help others or whether you’ve said the right things. You may also be more gullible than usual so be careful you don’t fall prey to some undeserving culprit’s sob story.
That’s it for this week, see you next Sunday!
