Today on November 1st Venus entered the sign of Sagittarius for the second time this year. It will make a second conjunction to the Galactic Center (the first was on February 1st) on November 23rd, just after an exact conjunction to the GC by Jupiter on November 19th.
Every year at this time an emphasis is placed on the realms of dead and listening more closely to what emotions and inner guidance are saying. That is ever so relevant now, with strong indications of a spiritual reality making itself known in forms of visions, flashes of the future, intuitive hunches, gut feelings, last-minute saves and miraculous encounters.
The approach of these conjunctions to the GC become even more noticeable mid-November and bring much-needed solace and encouragement to those souls who are downtrodden and riddled with fear as the astrological buildup of Saturn and Pluto continue to intensify on this planet.
Currently Mercury is also Retrograde in Scorpio, since October 31st until November 20th. Communication and cognitive patterns are introspective in nature during this time, drawing attention toward that which would ordinarily be ignored, unseen or glossed over. This is especially pertinent during Mercury’s transit to the Sun on November 11th. Dreams and psychic impressions may become greatly heightened throughout the month.
The two Great Benefics joined together conjunct the Galactic Center on November 24th indicate special blessings, important messages, and possibly divine intervention. Unexpected gifts or sudden breakthroughs may also appear. Leading up to this time pay extra attention to ideas that pop up in daydreams, unusual messengers, signs from nature and the behaviors of animals. Synchronicites abound during this time and will seem to spring up from every direction. There may be loud spiritual warnings that recommend we don’t go a certain direction or guideposts that let us know we are on the right track. There may also be an abundance of strange, so-called coincidences and messages “from the Universe” that are both unique and humorous. Some of you may have already noticed these forces becoming activated. That is another good sign!
The last time Jupiter made a conjunction to the Galactic Center was December 2nd of 2007, shortly after Pluto’s conjunction to the GC. It may have taken all this time to assimilate what was given to us or what was experienced. Jupiter will shift out of Sagittarius and enter Capricorn this year on December 2nd 2019, bringing a new set of gifts, opportunities and expansions that are focused on the earth element instead of fire.
Another conjunction to the GC by the Sun on December 19th is up next, with Mercury making its presence there known during the very fortunate Solar Eclipse on the 25th to the 27th. Although it may not be apparent on the surface, finances and relationships are surrounded by protection and blessings from late November to late December. December could be the month to make an investment, commitment or start a new enterprise.
Great uses the period of time that Venus and Jupiter transit the GC late November include spiritual practices such as prayer, meditation, making offerings and charitable donations, artistic pursuits, poetry, expanding the spiritual knowledge-bank, love rituals, inner and outer journeys to exotic places or realms through study or physical travel.
If you have any personal planets at 27 degrees of Sagittarius or making aspects to it, then you may especially experience these strong currents made by Venus and Jupiter’s aligning with the Galactic Center in the coming weeks.
