A Month of Rebirth and Ripeness

A Month of Rebirth and Ripeness Donna Taylor

It's time to fasten your seatbelts, folks, because November looks like a roller–coaster ride. First off, we have an intensely erratic alignment featuring Venus, Pluto, and Uranus, so the Librans and Taureans in particular will need to hang on to their hats. The Capricorns, Ariens, Scorpios, and Aquarians may also feel that the opening few days of the month are either exhilarating or destabilizing. All these signs need to be aware of the need for change, so whether you're clearing out your clutter or ending an unsatisfying situation, this powerful alignment of planets will kick–start your life.

Slow Down and Make Time for Your Inner World

On to the next point of interest. On November 7, Mercury turns retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius and heads slowly back to Scorpio. By now you should all be familiar with the general advice given for a Mercury retrograde cycle, but in case you need reminding, the most important feature is to slow down. The only reason why people experience more mishaps under these transits comes down to a reluctance or inability to adopt a slower pace of life. Each Mercury retrograde cycle gives us a valuable opportunity to pause for thought and to pay attention to our inner selves rather than our external lives.

It helps to see this as the human equivalent of defragging a computer. You know how over time, your computer slows and starts to present you with annoying little problems? This is a sign that all the accumulated files need cleaning, clearing, and sorting. Once this is done, the computer is back to its usual efficient self. So for us, this is an ideal time to turn our attention inward and clear out whatever has accumulated or attend to whatever needs sorting.
