November 2015 Vedic Astrology Forecast
November 2015 is going to be intense, as for much of the month Mars and the North node will be joined, and very close. This may create explosive situations globally and personally. It will be more important than ever to stay close to your spiritual practices and look for opportunities to balance service to others with self-care.
November 2 through the 5
Venus and Mars are in a Planetary War in Virgo. “Love is a Battlefield” could be the theme for this placement. Actually much of this will persist for the entire month, but these few days especially could be flashpoints of change in our relationships.
The Moon joins Mars, Venus and Rahu in Virgo. Shortly after the Venus/Mars war, the moon (our mind and consciousness), strolls onto the scene. A potential “bloody aftermath” could be heavy on our heart right now. Care must be taken to stay grounded, and not be the victim or victimize others. We also must be careful not to sell our integrity down the drain in order to cling to a (potentially toxic) connection.
Mars passes over the North Node in Virgo, to the exact degree. The party continues and the explosive potential multiplies. Being forewarned is important, as you may see others around you exploding and easily triggered. There is always the potential to remain calm. Sometimes the best you can do is not react and instead show up and serve. But that may be difficult as you may be facing adversaries that are too hard to ignore.
The New Moon in Libra, joined Mercury begins a new cycle of relationship change and compromise. In the midst of these intense Mars conjunctions, we begin this cycle of appeasement and compromise. For the next 30 days it will be just as important to honor our own inner strength as it is to honor another’s. In fact, we may be challenged to slide on our values and principles in order to please others. We must be careful of this and strike a reasonable balance.
In addition, the sun is its sign of debilitation, so we will have a tendency to forget our own light and power. Mercury is also in Libra at this time bringing flexibility and good communication skills.
This new Moon happens in Vishaka Nakshatra, the star of achievement and motivation. There’s a deep desire to” save the world” and make it a better place now. Hold a higher vision for yourself and humanity.
The Moon will be in Scorpio with Saturn now, another intense and heavy placement. As was said, this month is frontloaded with much intensity. Now you must be careful of withdrawing into a shell of insecurity. Instead go deeply into your heart and self. Be ever vigilant to “playing the victim”.
The Moon is in Aquarius aspected by Jupiter in Leo, finally some easy hope and inspiration! Now the moon in Aquarius brings the feeling of making a big splash in the world. Communicating your higher vision and following through on it could come easy now. Do not shrink from the challenge.
The Moon will be full in Taurus, promising a return to an ability to more easily access connection and beauty. When the Moon is full our heart is much more open than usual, and the desire to connect with others is also strong. Of course, this also can lead to excessive attachment and clinging if we are not careful. However, this is also a great time to enjoy your friends and family and those things that make you feel at home here on earth. This Full Moon happens in Rohini Nakshatra. This archetype said to be the favorite wife of the Moon and an energetic place where we can settle with the most ease and comfort. Enjoy it!
This Full moon is in the Nakshatra of Krittika, the cutter, where can cut through the attachment in the mind. The god is Agni and in the Vedas, Agni was the most celebrated of all of the deities.
The Sun is closely joined Saturn in Scorpio now, showing some insecurities and doubts of our vision and purpose. The sun is about vitality, and Saturn shows the mistakes we have made and our desire to avoid them in the future. You may experience a lack of confidence now, and also “gas”. But it is also a good time to develop “inner vision”.
