Your Astrological Weather Report for November 2020
I like to think of astrology as a weather report. When the weather calls for rain, you bring along your umbrella or when it’s cold, you wear a jacket. Astrology is not predestination, as we all have free will. Instead, astrology is a tool to know what trends are around the bend. It’s all about energy.
As a new reader, it’s important to check your sun sign (for example, if you’re born June 25, you’re a Cancer). It’s important to also read your rising and moon sign. The three signs together create your special, individual reading for the month. Don’t know your rising or your moon sign? Google “Natal chart calculator” or try this link– it’s free!
Now, on to the big news.
November is a huge month, my friends. After the year we’ve had in 2020, this should come as no surprise. We ended October with a powerful and argumentative full moon (they call it a Blue Moon), which was the first full moon that we’ve had on Halloween in 76 years. I hope you stayed safe during this time.
Adding to the energy, Mercury, the little trickster, has been in retrograde and went direct on November 3. A big sigh of relief on that one. Have you noticed communications feeling muddied, electronics not working easily or have things been breaking down around you the past few weeks? That was Mercury doing the retrograde tango. Even though Mercury is direct on the 3rd, watch out for the post shadow phase till the 19th. Try not to buy electronics or sign contracts during Mercury retrograde. If you do, save the receipt.
Mars and Neptune have also been retrograde. With three planets retrograde, it has put a big damper on our energies. Thankfully, Mars goes direct on the 13th and Neptune on the 28th.
Jupiter and Pluto, two powerhouses, are conjunct on the 12th, magnifying everything in its path and as if that weren’t enough, we have a lunar eclipse on the 30th.
So, read on MacDuff, and find out what all of this planetary action means for your gorgeous soul.

On the 12th, Pluto and Jupiter, two huge powerhouse planets (yes, Pluto isn’t officially a planet and quite small, but it packs a big punch) are joined, aka conjunct in your 10th house of career helping to magnify your biggest dreams.

Time to reevaluate your finances, get out of debt and focus on where you invest these energies. You are a Taurus, which rules the throat chakra, and there are more talented singers in the sign of Taurus than any other sign (Barbra Streisand, Ms. Taurus). Let your talents shine and perhaps you could see a little jingle in your pocket.
