November 2020

The Scorpio Sun will push inexorably on but without any major hiccups for three weeks. A sympatico trine with Neptune, is followed by a get-it-together and lucky sextile to Pluto Jupiter and then a down-to-earth sextile to Saturn. So there will be progress albeit slow. Mercury going direct on the 3rd will help to iron out communication glitches. And a super-confident conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto on the 12th should produce a triumph or two.

Venus in Libra will throw tact and social charm around to lighten the mood until it disappears into sexy, seductive Scorpio on the 21st for a few weeks.

What could see the start of a significant shift towards improvement is Mars going direct in Aries on the 14th – which has been causing all manner of mayhem recently. It will have one more challenging, frustrating and enraging square to Pluto to go running into December 23rd, before exiting Aries to great relief all round in early January.

Jupiter in Capricorn from December 2nd 2019 to December 19th 2020. Capricorn is money-minded, ambitious, traditional, practical. In astrology it rules business and governmental systems. Can be creative.

Saturn: In Capricorn from December 20th 2017 till March 22 2020, and again and again July 2nd to December 17th 2020 – usually coincides with a time of some financial shortages and the need to push ambitions ahead with persistence. Puts a toe into Aquarius in late March for three months, and moves in for two years plus from December onwards – it is serious thinking, helpful for science, steadier emotionally though cold.

Uranus: From March 2019 for seven years in Taurus – changing attitudes to handling of money, possessions and resources especially in agriculture and our attitude to nature.

Neptune: In Pisces from February 2012 for thirteen years – religious, spiritual, has resonances with Muslim history.

Pluto: In Capricorn for sixteen years from Nov 2008 till 2024 = complete deconstruction and reconstruction of global economic and commercial structures and systems, as well as major changes in way in which governments work. In past times of Pluto in Capricorn (approximately every 250 years) there was territorial domination on a grand scale by charismatic leaders and ultimately a time of culture, learning, justice and prosperity.
