Communication, travel, partnership, business, obligations, and responsibilities all may be in a state of transition in the early days of November, dear Scorpio, 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 8th and 11th Houses, moving in to your sign on the 2nd, bringing communication to your doorstep. Mercury will be here for approximately three weeks, putting you smack in the middle of the conversation during that time, and making you more inclined to verbal self-expression than you might normally be.


On the 3rd Venus makes her move, shifting into her home sign of sidereal Libra and your solar 12th House for a three and 1/2 week stay. You may feel more inclined to spend time snuggled away from the outside world with a sweetheart for much of the month, an admittedly enjoyable way to spend fall holidays.


If you’re not hitched, consider spending some quiet time in solitude making art or enjoying music to recharge. You can explore your most personal values and the underlying unconscious beliefs which inform them during this time, and choose to release those beliefs which no longer serve you. Create a new value system for yourself which aligns with those unconscious beliefs which resonate with you.


Then on the 4th Saturn, the celestial taskmaster, changes signs to sidereal Sagittarius bringing you some much needed relief at long last. You have hosted demanding Saturn in your sign for more than two and a half years, since November 2014–with the exception of a brief reprieve when Saturn made his initial foray into Sagittarius from February to early June of this year.


Saturn has served you challenges during these past three years, in fact, Scorpio has had it harder than any other sign. Now he’s moved on to your solar 2nd House to teach you lessons about financial self-discipline, and he won’t be back to this part of your chart for another 28 years.
