Monthly Astrology Transits for November 2020
November 1, 2020
Mercury (Libra) Square Saturn (Capricorn)
Mercury (Libra) square Saturn (Capricorn) can bring out some serious restrictions and limitations, and some of it may be real, but some of it may be perceived. Are you just thinking small and throwing up unnecessary blocks?
Try to take a step back and not get caught up. See what’s really there, and don’t jump to pessimistic conclusions.
November 3, 2020
Mercury Direct (Libra)
Mercury retrograde comes to a close, and we’re done with Mercury retrograde for 2020. It might take some time to feel like we’re switching back to normal motion though since Mars is still retrograde.
In the meantime, take some time to assess, to reflect, and to consider what your next steps will be coming out of this period. What have you learned from your experiences in the last few months (or in the last year), and how can you apply that to your life now?

November 6, 2020
Mercury (Libra) Square Saturn (Capricorn)
The Mercury retrograde ended square Saturn, so it’s in play for an extended period of time (starting around when Mercury goes back to Libra October 27th to about when Mercury exits Libra on November 10th).
This transit can bring conscious awareness to ways in which we’ve been holding ourselves back, being stifled, and how responsibilities have been either crushing or ignored. Plans and goals we’ve lost ground on can start to become more important again.
We can be less satisfied with the way things have been, and want to start thinking about how this can change. That can be a big theme in 2021.
November 9, 2020
Venus (Libra) Opposite Mars (Aries)
During Venus (Libra) opposite Mars (Aries), Mars is still in retrograde. This means we may be extra frustrated and annoyed with others. But, since Mars is retrograde, this frustration may have some subconscious motivations that need to be acknowledged.
It may seem like the problems are external and caused by others, but projection may be high. Be honest with yourself.
November 10, 2020
Mercury Enters Scorpio
Mercury re-enters Scorpio, the sign it began its retrograde in, and we can start to see some things come full circle that were first important around the start of the retrograde in mid-October. Dig deeper and try to find solutions that got set aside.

Sun (Scorpio) Trine Neptune (Pisces)

Mercury is in Scorpio until December 1st, 2020.
November 12, 2020
Jupiter (Capricorn) Conjunct Pluto (Capricorn)
Jupiter and Pluto have connected throughout 2020, and this is the final time they meet up. Passionate beliefs can be on full display, and we can make a big push for transformation now.
Look at your life and what has changed over the last year. Any last touches that are needed can be worked on now.

November 13, 2020
Mars Direct (Aries)
Mars has been retrograde since early September, and now this comes to a close. Motivation may have been questionable, energy may have been lacking, and what has driven us subconsciously may have led to some unwise decisions and actions.
With Mars moving forward now, this can free you up to take control over your energy, and make positive use of inspiration. You should be more aware of your subconscious motivations, and let go of the baggage that has caused insecurity.
November 14, 2020
Sun (Scorpio) Sextile Pluto & Jupiter (Capricorn)
The Sun comes to a beneficial angle to the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction, and this helps shine a light on our passionate beliefs and on what we want to transform for the better. Our view of what we want and how we get it can become clearer.
You may feel more comfortable with what you want to do for yourself, and you can find motivation to do it for you.
November 15, 2020
New Moon in Scorpio
The Scorpio New Moon comes to us in November and signals a time when we can get started on new transformations, get to the heart of matters, bring some light to dark corners, and be realistic about situations. This is a time to solve problems and clear the way.
Venus (Libra) Square Pluto (Capricorn)
Venus comes to a hard angle to Pluto, and we may struggle over power and control at times, or feel we have to fight against others in order to get what we want. Work to find some common ground where you can.

November 16, 2020
Venus (Libra) Square Jupiter (Capricorn)
Venus and Jupiter at odds tend to increase laziness and indulgence. We may not want to get much of anything done, and instead prefer to take a break.
If you’ve been pushing yourself really hard lately, a break may be the right answer for you.
November 17, 2020
Mercury (Scorpio) Opposite Uranus (Taurus)
This aspect comes full circle since Mercury first opposed Uranus at the start of its retrograde. It may have brought out rebelliousness, impulsive energy, and a big push against norms.
Now, we can see the results of that, and we can think about what we should do next. We need to think outside of the box, but also be realistic about what’s possible and how to enact the changes we seek.
November 19, 2020
Sun (Scorpio) Sextile Saturn (Capricorn)
Saturn gets the attention of the Sun and Venus, and the Sun helps to bring attention to the long-term plans and goals we want to achieve. We may have been put off course this year, but we can get back on track with some smart choices.
Venus (Libra) Square Saturn (Capricorn)
Venus brings some challenges with the people around us, and we may need to find some balance between the personal and the professional. Tragic ambition doesn’t really serve anyone well.
November 21, 2020
Venus Enters Scorpio, Sun Enters Sagittarius
In some ways, we may need more space with the Sun in Sagittarius, yet we want more closeness with Venus in Scorpio. We need room to do what we want, but also feel secure in our relationships.
Venus is in Scorpio until December 15th, 2020, and the Sun is in Sagittarius until December 21st, 2020.
November 23, 2020
Mercury (Scorpio) Trine Neptune (Pisces)
Imagination can be very strong with this aspect, and we can use that imagination to pursue creative projects and ventures. Inspiration can flow freely.
We can also have an easier time understanding what people mean behind what they say, and empathy in communication can be helpful.
November 27, 2020
Mercury (Scorpio) Sextile Pluto (Capricorn), Venus (Scorpio) Opposite Uranus (Taurus)
Focus can be intense, and any subject you want to dig deeper into, you can find it easier to do so. You can tackle serious matters, and come up with effective plans.
Patience may be tested in relationships thanks to Venus-Uranus, and you may want to push to get your own way. Avoid rebellion and try to maintain composure to find some room for compromise.
November 28, 2020
Neptune Direct (Pisces)
Neptune retrograde coming to a close helps to lift the fog that can stifle everyone and everything. We can see a little more clearly, and find answers that were right in front of us all along.
Mercury (Scorpio) Sextile Jupiter (Capricorn)
Optimism can run high thanks to Mercury-Jupiter, and you can think bigger with your ideas. Communication can be positive, and you can open up about your thoughts and plans.
November 30, 2020
Lunar Eclipse in Gemini
The lunar eclipse in Gemini helps with finalizing plans and sorting through ideas so you know what you’re going to work on and what you’re going to save for later. This helps with moving toward a new year.

As we are in the depths of Scorpio season, it is only appropriate to honor the sign from which this time of year dignifies!
You may be thinking to yourself: “I’m not a Scorpio so this doesn’t apply to me.”
You’ll hear often with astrology “as above, so below,” meaning that just as the sky holds every zodiac sign and planet at any given time, so do each of us have some representation of each sign and planet in our natal chart.
Throughout the article, I will teach you how to discover Scorpio in your chart and then how to best work with the Scorpio energy.
While every sign in the zodiac has a dark side*, Scorpio is one of the deepest, intimate, and most dark zodiac signs. I hope that you might have some insights or secrets revealed about yourself that lead you on a deeper path into passion and purpose.
*I should note that “dark” doesn’t mean evil, but rather a mysterious, hidden secret or trait. Your zodiac secret or dark side is just as varied and unique as the next person.
Before we go over how to find Scorpio in your birth chart, let’s get to know this zodiac sign just a little bit better.
3 Common Misconceptions About Scorpio
To help discover how Scorpio resonates with you, let’s begin with some common misconceptions about Scorpio.
Scorpios are mean.
Sure, if you engage in battle with a Scorpio, you’ll want to make certain you have antivenin ready because there will be swelling. Truth be told, Scorpios are a Fixed sign, meaning that they tend to be very resolute and inflexible.
This is never the case 100% of the time, but given their inability to back down, it can come off as malicious and sharp.
Scorpio is often associated with the shadow self.
This is true, however, many individuals don’t want to go that “deep” and feel their Scorpio companions will. The idea that a Scorpio tries to pull others into the depths of their psyche is not accurate.
While Scorpios are intellectual individuals, this misconception gives them way too much credit. Going to grab a drink with a friend who is a Scorpio will not always result in a psychoanalytic assessment, but you may find that your conversations rarely stay on the surface.
With all of the above misconceptions in mind, we can see more clearly why Scorpios can be considered cold or distant, but perhaps it is not so much that they are dismissive, as much as they are introspective.
They tend to think deeply on a topic and love to get into the details. They’re not ignoring you. They’re just very focused.

3 Important Traits Scorpio Possesses
Now that Scorpio is more fully realized, let’s explore why we love them!
Scorpios are brave in mind and spirit.
The scorpion symbol itself represents that fearlessness. Scorpios take a stand on what they believe, and as mentioned, will never leave a fight easily. We love them because this courage is a model for others and easily contagious.
It’s not such a secret that the sign of Scorpio relates to sex, and not just the act of sex, but the passion of it as well. This is because Scorpios are passionate!
This trait is not only applied in the bedroom but with many areas of life.
Scorpios will most likely be the first of their friends at a protest or the one with daily reminders to vote (coincidentally another major Scorpio season event). Each passion may vary, but when there is something to learn or do involving their area of interest, there is nothing that Scorpios won’t know.
Scorpios don’t like to waste time.
They usually prefer to get right to the heart of a matter. Given this, Scorpios are extremely purposeful and direct. They keep to the point, get deep fast, and are very honest. You can usually learn quite a bit about a Scorpio’s opinion of you whether you ask for it or not.

How Do I Find Scorpio in My Birth Chart?
Now that we’ve gotten to know the Scorpio zodiac sign a little bit better, let’s talk about Scorpio in your birth chart.
First, ensure that you’ve gotten a free birth chart done, and have your chart in front of you.
Now you’re going to look for the Scorpio symbol. It looks like the capital letter “M” with an arrow tail. The arrow is pointing outward. This is very important because it can be easily confused with the Virgo symbol that has the tail pointing inward!
Wherever the Scorpio symbol falls in your chart, is the area of life it is associated with for your unique birth chart.
You will notice that the birth chart looks like a clock divided into twelve different parts. These are called astrological houses. Each house represents the area of life that the sign’s energy is happening.
The 1st house begins where the 9 o’clock would appear. Each house goes in numerical order counterclockwise.
For example, the 2nd house begins where the 8 o’clock would appear, tenth house where the 12 appears, and so on. Therefore, if you’re seeing Scorpio in your 6th house (5 o’clock), then that is the house most affected by the sign of Scorpio.
There are many opinions in the field of astrology about how the houses should be appropriately divided, and there are even interpretation techniques that also involve using the house’s natural sign and ruling planets to get even deeper into understanding one’s chart.
To spare you all these details (but I encourage you to do more studies), below is a simple but unique clarification of how Scorpio can play out in your chart and suggestions of how to work with the energies.

These examples only skim the surface of the depth Scorpio reveals in the houses, but it’ll give you a good idea of how to work with that investigative Scorpio energy to learn more! Take what resonates with you and leave the rest.

With Scorpio in your 1st house, you are a mysterious one.
While you might hold the cards into your personality, this doesn’t keep you from learning all you can about others. You love psychology and learning about people’s traits. You are likely the first to pull out a birth chart to figure out who in your group of friends is the most watery sign or which of your co-workers is the ENTJ of the group.
You like to know more about others than just what’s on the surface, but also trust that you can be open with them as well.
With Scorpio in your 2nd house, you are very private when it comes to your finances, and have a very “no joking” view when it comes to your work ethic.
You can put such an emphasis on these areas that you tend to freeze when considering any sort of change in the current structure of your daily routines. Allow some time to reflect on where you might be a bit rigid and allow for some more fun and play.
Are you a teacher? Or perhaps work in education? If Scorpio falls in this area in your chart, you might be very passionate about education or learning. And if you aren’t, were those grade school years particularly painful and better left in the past? Perhaps if you have siblings are there some secrets associated with them?
While 3rd house manners are varied, maybe you can take a moment to journal on some memories long forgotten and give them the processing they are due.
You tend to be more private when it involves matters at home with Scorpio in your 4th house. Even if you are friendly with your neighbors, you’re not necessarily gossiping with them daily (unless you have strong Gemini aspects in your chart).
This could also show up in your past.
Was your mother a particularly private individual? Were there secrets kept from you that didn’t come forward until you grew into adulthood? Maybe it’s time to write a letter of forgiveness for anything that happened in the past. Take that note and burn it.
If you’re unable to forgive, it means that a person or situation still has some control over you, and life is too wonderful to hold onto such things!
The 5th house has to do with children and romance. You may be emboldened by your children or deeply entrenched in a love affair. However, if you have neither in your life right now, no need to fret.
The Scorpio placement here means you are capable of deep passion not only in these sorts of relationships, but also in creativity!
When was the last time you had a playdate with yourself? Whatever creative outlet you have, (and you definitely have one), do not be afraid to devote some attention and time towards it.

The 6th house has to do health and service. One of your primary values is to be helpful to others. You will give all your time and attention to a cause or task and not stop advocating until you are completely exhausted.
Consequentially you might not give yourself the rest you deserve.
Make sure to do a look back at the last time you had a doctor’s appointment, or a trip to the gym, or cooked yourself a healthy meal. You’re going to want to make sure to give yourself the TLC you need so you can keep up your passion of giving to others.
One-on-one partnerships is the essence of the 7th house, particularly partnerships in marriage and long-term commitments. Honesty is very important to you, and you long for that same value to hold strong in your relationships.
This commitment doesn’t have to be just in marriage, but can also be in individual friendships and even in business affairs.
Take time to consider if you’ve been skeptical or not feeling completely settled on an issue. Bring it up to the other person in a loving and non-blaming way. Talking things through and do not suppress them as this will be better for both parties in the long run.

The 8th house is historically the house that is ruled by Scorpio, so it is the house that Scorpio fulfills it’s most “Scorpionic” things!
What are those you might ask?
Intimacy, taxes, shared finances, loans… the list goes on. While it may be an extensive list, it is usually regarding topics that are not everyone’s favorite to talk about or share. Perhaps this Scorpio season it’s time for you to do some organizing of your finances? Are you spending too much on credit? Should you consolidate loans? Is it time to plan for a monetary goal with your partner or yourself?
Get these things straight before the end of the year, and your tax return come April will thank you.
If Scorpio is in your 9th house, you might be a deep thinker. Philosophy and higher learning is associated with this house.
What subjects do you want to learn more on? Is there a particular culture you’d like to experience at a deeper level? Maybe it’s now time for you to set a goal of visiting that place or studying that subject? Take this as your cue to investigate it now.
You can’t keep procrastinating forever!
Being that the 10th house is one of the more public houses, dealing with one’s reputation and career, the secrets that may be within this sector might be a little bit more anxiety-provoking than others.
Are you hiding anything that you would rather keep out of the limelight? I don’t want to freak you out, but it is worth asking: are you acting out of integrity or are you trying to save face?
Philanthropy, technology, and the future. You care about doing good for others but make sure you don’t get too ambitious and forget your “why.”
Often with 11th house matters, it can be more about the subject matter and less about the people within the experience. Just make sure there is time for you to check-in with yourself and make sure your heart is really in it.
Make that time to listen to yourself and especially the needs of others.
Remember what I mentioned earlier about Scorpios being natural shadow workers? Well, this is the house where that shadow work lives.
The 12th house holds deeper spiritual matters.
If Scorpio falls in your 12th house, go deeper and don’t hold back. Ask yourself the things that others may not even want to venture into. You won’t get stuck, but rather you will come out with even greater fortitude!
Now that we’ve uncovered the secrets of Scorpio in your birth chart, it’s time to sit back and reflect. Did anything resonate with you? Do you feel a pull to anything that was mentioned? There are a multitude of different layers and mysterious within every single birth chart, so it’s important to take a look at your own and see what you might be able to find.
Who knows, you might just uncover something magical.

It all sounds so mystical and magical, doesn’t it?
People have harnessed this authentic and potent type of water for hundreds and hundreds of years. It is used for all types of ethereal and magical work, but it is used in various rituals that enhance the power of the individual using it.
So what exactly is it, how can you use it, and how can you make your own Moon water? We’re going to explain all of this and more.
What is Moon Water?
Moon water is water that has been charged and infused with the energy of the Full Moon.
Why the Full Moon?
Well, Full Moon energy is like no other. If you don’t believe it, observe the energy of yourself and those around you during the next Full Moon. Notice how everyone’s a little bit more high-strung than usual? A little bit more emotional? A little bit more … out there?
It is said that our bodies are made up of 70% water. The Moon causes tides on the earth, affecting the flow and ebb of the waves. It is only natural that the Moon should affect us too.
We are watery beings!
In astrology, the Moon represents our emotional and inner self – our emotions are tied in with water. Hence the Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, are known for their emotional depth. They are also known for their intuitive insight, and this is another reason people use Moon water. Emotions are linked to intuition, and intuition is linked to magic.
You can see why people use Moon water. The Full Moon’s energy is so powerful that it can amplify our own intuition and magical abilities when water is infused under it.

What Can Moon Water Do for You?
Moon water can…
- Enhance your intuitive abilities.
- Aid you in manifestation rituals.
- Help calm and balance your emotions.
- Charge crystals that can be cleansed in water.
- Bring you greater clarity and relaxation (such as when placing a few drops in the bath with you and meditating).
You can even drink Moon water and infuse your body with the wonderful energy of the Full Moon (this is only a good idea if you leave it on your windowsill and not in the garden overnight).
How to Make Moon Water
The following are easy, simple steps for you to make Moon water:
- On the night of the Full Moon, choose a container of your such as a cup, a glass, or even a mason jar. This is your “vessel.”
- Fill it with (preferably filtered) water.
- Place it on your windowsill, which is facing the Full Moon. You can also leave it out overnight if you wish (if it is not too windy or raining!) Cover it with clear wrap.
- Leave some crystals next to it. If you have a specific goal in mind, such as money, love and relationships, career, or anything else, place crystals specific to your intentions next to it. For example, for love, you could use rose quartz. Also, crystals such as selenite and moonstone are always an excellent idea to leave next to Moon water as these crystals enhance the Full Moon’s rays and strengthen your water’s energy.
- Say a little thank you to the Full Moon and express your gratitude.
- Leave it overnight. Then, in the morning, pick your Moon water up – it is ready for you!
2 Moon Water Rituals
Light of the Moon Bathing Ritual
This ritual involves mixing some Moon water with your bath. This particular ritual is excellent for calming and focusing your mind, releasing negative energy, and preparing yourself for a new day.
Remember, after the Full Moon is over, we move into the stage that builds us towards the New Moon.
When doing a Bathing Ritual with your Moon water, time it so that it coincides with each Moon phase’s specific energies. Pour a few drops of Moon water into your bath and get in.
Envisage a white light surrounding you and let the energy of the Moon water absorb into your entire being. Feel your mind relax and imagine negative energy being swallowed by the Moon water. This ritual will leave you feeling spiritually nourished and ready to start a new beginning.

Intuitive Ability Ritual
This ritual focuses on enhancing your psychic gifts and is best done when you cannot be disturbed.
Dab some Moon water in the middle of both eyebrows where your Third Eye chakra is. This ritual is best done with the crystals merlinite and Preseli bluestone, which are powerful crystals for enhancing psychic ability. Keep these crystals close to you, preferably in your hands or worn around your neck, if possible.
Close your eyes and clear your mind. Play gentle meditation music if it helps to calm you.
Take note of what images freely enter your mind as your conscious mind stops chattering. Be sure to note down these visions as you can then analyze them later on.

Use Moon Water During the Next Full Moon!
Moon water is a wonderful, magical, and potent water that can aid us in many different ways. It’s so easy to make and yet brings such spectacular benefits.
Of course, belief is crucial. Do you believe in the powers of the Moon? If so, Moon water will be an essential part of your rituals and manifestation moments.
Remember, water is one of the most powerful elements. It runs deep, and its abilities are infinite. It represents everything that exists within our subconscious mind, a place that is vast and mysterious. Just like the Moon card in the Tarot, the Moon up above helps us tap into and understand this mysterious place. Moon water, therefore, helps us navigate the powerful and dark waters of our subconscious mind.
