This November Mars will finally move into a new sign, Venus goes direct again and Saturn moves into a different Nakshatra, Purva Ashadha.
Mars and Ketu have both been in Capricorn for several months now and, due to Mars having spent some time in retrograde, three conjunctions have taken place between them. This has caused an intense activity, some due to intense weather and other natural catastrophes. We have also experienced many heated political events and much senseless violence.
Mars is at the peak of his strength on November 2nd and 3rd at 28 degrees Capricorn. This is his degree of exaltation in the sky.
On November 6th Mars moves into Aquarius. Aquarius is a humanitarian sign and even though Mars is no longer together with feisty Ketu we will likely continue to see heated discussions in world politics. More people may also become actively involved in political, humanitarian and environmental efforts.
Some attention needs to be given to what might happen after November 16th. The Sun joins Jupiter and Mercury in Scorpio on this day. Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio and Venus moves direct in Libra, also on November 16th. We will likely see some change and reform taking place during this time.
On November 27th this energy is more pronounced when the Sun /Jupiter/ Mercury (R) are in an exact conjunction at 10 degrees Scorpio.
On the same day, November 27th, Saturn moves into a different Nakshatra: Purva Ashadha. Purva Ashadha is energizing and tries to separate what is beneficial and useful from that which is not. The shadow side of Purva Ashadha deals with elitism and self-righteousness.
If you have your rising sign, Sun or Moon in Scorpio you have an increased opportunity to make positive personal changes this month.
Libra, Capricorn, Aries and Cancer will have a strong, positive Venus after November 16th when Venus is direct again. This is a time when relationships can prosper.

You too are part of all that is. Cosmic reality is expressed on earth, and also within you. With the help of planets and stars, the universe sets up circumstances that will allow the soul to work out its karma.
October is a complex month astrologically, with several major shifts. Mars is in close combustion with the Sun the entire month, and there is a deep sense of change as Saturn and Jupiter both shift from retrograde to direct.
