November 2021 Astrology Forecast: Future Nostalgia

November 2021 Astrology Forecast: Future Nostalgia

The Bigger Picture

Even though tension is building for a final difficult transit in December, we’re experiencing Future Nostalgia: a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the future. Here’s why…

Trigger, or Medicine Bag?

We all have ‘those days’ where something catches us off-guard. When an emotional trigger is hit, can you see it as a medicine bag this time? These ‘triggers’ are helpers. Also: Watch out for compulsive behaviors and a need to place meaning on things that may have none. The metaphysical megaphone is prime for making mountains out of molehills, and oppositely – overlooking major things that require your attention, and overcoming the odds. Bet on the underdog this month. [Jupiter semisquare Chiron ℞ releases November 17]

Blast from the Past 

Shared memories, learning from the past, healing with ancestor work, and beginning new mentor relationships are an optimal way to work with the planets in November. [Saturn sextile Chiron ℞ releases November 26]

The field of infinite wisdom, where all things are possible.

This combination allows you to sense what great things are possible. Tune into the field of all possibilities and remain optimistic – it’s your secret weapon for manifesting exactly what you wish for the future. [Jupiter semisextile Pluto releases November 27]

November 5: Venus and Mercury make moves
Venus enters Capricorn: With Venus staying in hotel Capricorn through the end of the year, we can feel a little more cautious with love and money. We are seeking something more long term, we want to feel committed, and we are called to take a more mature approach with life. 

Mercury enters Scorpio: Mercury represents how we think and process. When in Scorpio, we may experience a more fixed and calculated approach to thinking through issues. People may be more blunt, and humor can be dark. You might find an interesting mystery book to explore secrets or take a lesson in learning to read tarot cards. Mercury is in Scorpio through November 24. 

Circle November 6 as a potential “best day”
Mercury sextiles Venus: Ease, harmony, flow. It’s a good day for a good day. Shop the sales, find deals at vintage markets, and interesting items at garage or estate sales. If you’re organizing, and you don’t love it, let someone else have it: it’s an equally good time to put your unwanted things on the market and clear your clutter. It’s amazing what a clean ‘junk’ drawer can do for the mind.

November 10: Caution Lights
Things get heated, accidents are more likely, and tempers flare. Stay hydrated and pack your patience.  On the positive, this is an ideal time to work with the power of your mind. Take inventory. What’s working? What details to change? What are you afraid of?  Plan before you make changes: what is your call to action? [Mercury and Mars square Saturn].

Launch a campaign to help others, volunteer your time, consider the life you live is your legacy. This yang phase signifies decision making, determination, and commitment to action wherever 19-Aquarius is in your chart.

November 12: Stand up for Your Inner Child
Mars inconjunct Chiron ℞: “Mars aspecting Chiron [natally] indicates a deep association with the sacred warrior archetype. Mars is the activation of the animus, the male aggressive principle in the natal chart, and aspects to Chiron spiritualize the issue.” ― Barbara Hand Clow

November 13-15: Trouble in paradise: Moderation in all things.
Loose lips sink ships. Change your passwords, be frugal, and be cautious about over-sharing [Venus semi square Jupiter + Sun square Jupiter]. 

November 15-19: Caution Lights
Breakthroughs, breakdowns, aha moments. Sometimes accidents reveal necessary information. Because we anticipate a lot of wires being crossed, this is not the best day for a launch or important meeting. Slow down, and seek to understand. Give emergency care workers a thoughtful gift [Mars opposite Uranus ℞ on the 17th].

FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE: November 19th in 27-Taurus
Intention: Hidden emotions organically process through and out of my body, mulching back into the Earth for transformation into nutrients

Coming Unearthed. Light is shed on buried secrets. More will be revealed. Be still. This phase signifies the completion of a cycle, endings, and closure wherever 27-Taurus is in your chart. Make wishes around healthy choices in food and sensuality, no longer playing the victim, standing in your worth and power, feeling richly rooted.

Sun semisquare Venus on the 19th too: Notice where you might have been denying yourself. We all deserve more unconditional love, not less. If it’s moody out there, it’s probably moody ‘in here’. The ho’oponopono prayer helps us all: I’m sorry (responsibility). Please forgive me (forgiveness). Thank you (gratitude). I love you (love). 

November 20: Micro not matching the Macro
Make a list of your priorities, then make a second list of your daily activities. If they don’t sync up, it’s time to navigate yourself back to a lifestyle that works for you [Mercury square Jupiter]
