Pisces Rising

Communication, travel, partnership, business, obligations, and responsibilities all may be in a state of transition in the early days of November, dear Pisces, as three planets make sign changes in the lead up to the November 4th full moon in Aries.

First to make a sign change is Mercury, ruler of your solar 4th and 7th Houses, moving into sidereal Scorpio on the 2nd and bringing you news from far away.


On the 3rd Venus makes her move to join the sun and Jupiter in her home sign of Libra for a three and 1/2 week visit to your solar 8th House of other people’s money. During this time you could see unexpected money come your way through the generosity of others, or a bonus or commission if you earn income that way.


The next day Saturn returns to sidereal Sagittarius to resume his tour of your career sector for the coming two years. He’ll be testing and teaching you while he’s here, pushing you to demonstrate your self discipline and commitment to your professional aspirations. It will be challenging, but if you’re up to the challenge, you’ll find at the end that it will be rewarding, too.


Saturn always rewards us for making a real effort to learn tough, lifelong lessons and demonstrating maturity and responsibility. When we don’t, he gives us obstacles, limitations and restrictions just like a stern father figure.


Saturn’s sign change comes just in time for the full moon in Aries to light your solar 2nd House of earned income. An income source could be coming to an end for you withing =/- 4 days of November 4th, or, if you began creating a side hustle for yourself at the new moon in Aries last April you could finally begin to see it pay off.


Or, you may sell off a possession near this full moon as another possibility. Whatever happens, there’s a possibility that it comes up quite unexpectedly due to an investment opportunity, loan,  or a tax or other debt payment you may need to make, as Venus opposes Uranus from her post in your 8th House. You could even receive an unexpected inheritance or insurance payout.

A VIP in your career sector could be just the ally you need near the 9th.


On November 11th Saturn makes his final trine to Uranus in a series of three the beginning of which stretches back to December of last year, allowing you to make the last of permanent, beneficial changes to how you approach your career and finances. You may finally be able to create some long term improvements in your professional life which have a lasting impact in your income at this time.


Check your natal chart to see if you have a planet or personal point at 1° or 2° degrees of a fire sign, Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, to find out if you are personally affected by this transit.


The greater and lesser benefics, Jupiter and Venus, meet up in the sky for a lucky date in your financial sector on the 13th. A significant amount of money could come your way near this date, dear Aquarius.


Mercury sends a challenge to Neptune in your 12th House of privacy and seclusion the same day. You could receive news from a great distance which affects you personally, and which you’re inclined to keep quiet about.


Mercury is currently touring your 9th House of international affairs, foreign travel, legal and religious matters, higher education, and publishing and broadcasting, so the news you receive is likely to concern a related matter.


Remember that Mercury is out of bounds for several weeks, and he plays by his own rules while he does so. Be careful not to make mountains out of molehills and go flying off the handle. It’s ok to seek clarification if you need it, and better than jumping to conclusions.

“You could see unexpected money come your way through the generosity of others, or a bonus or commission if you earn income that way.”

Mercury enters the shadow of his December 3rd retrograde on the 14th, making the coming three weeks an excellent time to make a plan for putting the retrograde to use, while Mercury is slowing down.


He’ll be retracing his steps through Sagittarius and Scorpio this time, and any Mercury ruled work you do between now and December 3rd may come up for revision during his retrograde. This includes mental activities like analysis and research, writing, travel related activities, communication, sales, and commerce.


Prepare now, and you’ll have a much easier time navigating the retrograde when it comes. You can download a free excerpt from my ebook, The Mercury Retrograde Survival Guide, for all the guidance you need to help you get safely–and sanely–through any Mercury retrograde cycle. I give the most important details away for free.


You’ll want to get all of your most important holiday shopping done before this date, especially if you have big ticket items, electronics, or anything with moving parts on your list. If you can’t, the best strategy is to give gift cards. That way your loved ones can do their own shopping after the Christmas holiday, when the retrograde will be over. The January clearance sales in the second half of the month would be the prime time to go.


The sun moves into sidereal Scorpio on the 16th for a four week stay in your solar 9th House, governing long distance travel, communication, and higher thinking.


You may find yourself feeling philosophically inclined during his stay.

You could discover yourself in the position to invest in a private matter or a solo project you’ve been working on near the 16th. Alternatively, you could find hidden value in spiritual pursuits on this day. Feel free to spend some time alone if you like, you could find the time well spent.


You could hear news from a partner in business or marriage near the 17th, and if so, this news would likely have to travel a great distance to reach you.


The new moon in Scorpio November 18th is a tense affair, with both Scorpio’s traditional and modern rulers, Pluto and Mars, duking it out in an aggressive struggle for control and influence over 9th House matters.


If a legal, educational, travel, publishing or broadcasting opportunity comes up near this date, expect it to be a highly competitive and transformational experience for you, something which could take you into previously unexplored territory. You could blaze trails.   


Neptune stations direct in your 12th House of privacy and seclusion after five long months retrograde. If you’ve been feeling the urge to just escape in that time and found it hard to make progress on solo projects, you’ll find that finally begins to shift in the coming weeks.


Hidden information, secrets or deceptions can come to light when Neptune stations, a possibility if you have a planet or personal point at 16° or 17° degrees Aquarius. Check your natal chart to see if you will be directly affected.


Mercury moves into sidereal Sagittarius on the 25th, just as he sends a helpful beam to Uranus your 2nd House of earned income. Surprise financial news is coming your way near this day, and it could pad your wallet nicely.


Retrograde motion will bring Mercury back to Scorpio for nearly four weeks in early December, before he makes his return visit to Sagittarius after the new year.

Venus enters sidereal Scorpio on the 27th, enhancing your appreciation for the beauty of foreign cultures, learning new things, and exploring new ideas in the coming three and 1/2 weeks.


Mercury conjoins Saturn on the 28th, the first in a series of three conjunctions between now and early 2018. While Saturn and Mercury typically only meet up once a year, Mercury’s retrograde will have him checking in with the taskmaster planet while first direct, then retrograde, and finally direct once again, in sequence.


Pay attention to what comes up on the 28th, as you may find yourself having to revisit the subject until it’s been refined and polished to Saturn’s satisfaction.


You may need to do sustained mental activity in your professional sector on this day, such as writing, presenting, analysis or other Mercury-ruled activities.
