Thanksgiving is coming, and we should be thinking about cozy families sitting around the dinner table, smiling as they pass they gravy and the stuffing…listening to Grandma telling stories of walking barefoot in the snow 5 miles each way to school, uphill both ways…and sharing one kumbayah moment after another. So why is your mind on SEX???
I’ll tell you why. There is currently a planetary pileup in Scorpio, the sign known for its mystery and sensuality. This is the house of libido and intimacy, of finding love and then diving into the depths of passion and lust. The Sun is always in Scorpio at this time of year; no news flash there. But this year El Sol is joined by a tribe of other orbs that simply want to get their groove on. Amorous Venus glided here on the 7th and there will be a new moon here on the 18th. Furthermore, abundant Jupiter is now in this part of the sky for the first time in almost 13 years.
As a result you may be in the mood to gird your loins, rip off your clothes or jump on top of the most desirable person who happens to be within 50 feet of you. Yup, November is looking like one heck of a sensual and erotic month. There are some super sexy days ahead, such as the 13th (feel adventurous!), 16th (get a room), the 21st (confidence is charismatic) and the 22nd (when love planet Neptune goes direct).
Single and despairing? Feel like you got your legs all shaved and no one will even notice? Don’t lose hope, my friend. Saturday the 11th could bring a surprise encounter with someone new and quite different from your usual type (and this is could be a keeper, not just a one night stand). The 17th and 25th are also auspicious for finding a new flame. Bars and online sites may not be your best bet in November, FYI. Try visiting cultural sites instead, such as a museum or book signing event. There’s a multiculti vibe in the air that is perfect for bumping into someone.
But don’t think that November will just be about hot steamin’ romps in the boudoir. Scorpio also governs your net worth. We’re talking BIG money here, not chump change. So all of this planetary action in Scorpio is perfect for researching new investment options, such as mutual funds or real estate. Patents, royalties, commission money and joint business ventures are found here too. This sector is more about passive income rather than the kind you earn at the day job. Therefore, if you’re thinking about starting a side hustle, something that you can maintain while you keep the 9-to-5, this is an excellent time to take action.
Saturday the 11th is one of the best days all year to brainstorm, and with generous Jupiter in a good angle to Venus, the financial payoff could be significant as both of these planets govern profits. The 16th is also a good time to perform some recon (keep it quiet though), and the new moon on the 18th is the perfect moment to plant seeds. Whatever you launch at this lunation could pay off by May of next year.
Scorpio is also the sign of the “hidden world”, not just what we do behind closed doors but what goes on inside our minds and souls. If you’ve been thinking about studying reiki, shamanism, meditation, mindfulness, medicinal herbs, or dream analysis the time is now. What you learn could be life changing, and with Jupiter in this part of the sky for another year, you could go on a “magical mystery tour” that will take you to other dimensions (no drugs needed!). Learn how to develop your intuition, or get a reading from a well-respected psychic or medium. Vow to spend time each week or day to work on yourself.
Murky Neptune has been retrograding in the house of the subconscious mind, Pisces, for several months. When it resumes direct motion on the 22nd your own personal Spidey sense may become so well-tuned that you could be dumbfounded at the quality and quantity of information that comes your way!
