The astrology forecast for the week of November 1, 2021 through November 7, 2021 features four major planetary aspects (Mercury trine Jupiter, Mercury square Pluto, Sun opposing Uranus, and Mercury sextile Venus), two sign changes (Venus and Mercury), and a New Moon in Scorpio.
Now, that’s a lot of energy! So, let’s dive in.
The bulk of the aspects this week involve Mercury, who is currently moving through fair-and-balanced Libra. Anytime planets move through Libra, relationship issues will be front and center, but one of the most important features of Mercury in Libra is the way we communicate with others. As we move through the week, pay close attention to how you communicate. Are your conversations productive and collaborative, or are they contentious and discordant? Try to spend time listening to others rather than merely reacting to them.
The other newsmaker this week is the New Moon in Scorpio. This New Moon is tricky because it’s in an exact opposition to Uranus in Taurus. Uranus is the planet of freedom, and this New Moon is excellent if you want to shake things up and reboot your life. It’s especially helpful for ridding yourself of energies, people, or situations that have been holding you back. Sometimes, to have a new beginning, you need to completely leave the past behind. There is a warning with this New Moon: don’t play with Uranus, make sure you want dynamic change before activating this planetary energy.

We start the week off with a lovely aspect between Mercury and Jupiter. If you want to plan your goals for 2022, this would be an auspicious day to do it. Jupiter helps you understand the big picture, and Mercury helps you organize your thoughts and ideas. So, begin planning now and make it an excellent year! Mercury trine Jupiter is also excellent for business matters and formalizing agreements.

Mercury forms a tough square to Pluto, and this aspect can lead to obsessive thinking. Try to avoid pushing your agenda or ‘truth’ on too many people, because they may feel you are trying to coerce or control them. Of course, this could lead to feelings of frustration, because you may feel alienated and dismissed. On a positive note, Mercury – Pluto aspects may help you get in touch with your true feelings or uncover hidden aspects of yourself.
Wednesday, November 3, 2021
On Wednesday, the Moon moves through Libra. During the morning hours, emotions may simmer as the Moon squares turbulent Pluto. You may want to avoid power hungry people, especially on the work front. This afternoon, the skies will clear, and the cosmic weather will be more harmonious as the Moon sextiles Venus in Sagittarius.
Thursday, November 4, 2021
The New Moon (see above) occurs at 5:15 PM EST, so get your intentions ready. It’s time to make some magic!
In other news, the Sun will oppose Uranus later in the evening. The Sun oppose Uranus is an unstable aspect, so if your world has been a bit stale, you may have an urge to shake things up. One thing you can count on is that unexpected events will probably occur at the worst possible time, so keep your guard up. Also, the Sun oppose Uranus can lead to accidents. Performs tasks as thoughtfully as possible.
Friday, November 5, 2021
Friday gives us two sign changes – Venus moves into Capricorn, and Mercury leaves Libra and enters Scorpio.
During the morning hours, Venus moves into stable Capricorn. It’s time to leave the fun and adventure behind and live in the real world. Since Capricorn is a traditional sign, Venus loves the comforts and stability the sign of the goat provides. While Venus is in Capricorn, it’s the time of year for us to look at our responsibilities and duties in our relationships and make adjustments when necessary. Moreover, the more ‘work’ we put into our relationships, the more fulfilling they will ultimately be.
Later in the evening, Mercury makes a sign change when he moves into Scorpio. Mercury in Scorpio is the detective placement of the zodiac. It gives you the ability to see beneath the surface and resolve problems you may have. Mercury – Pluto is also keen to get to the truth, especially if secrets lurk in the closet somewhere. However, make sure you use any knowledge acquired cautiously.
Saturday, November 6, 2021
If you are in a relationship, today is a great day for love, as Mercury sextiles romantic Venus. Mercury sextile Venus is excellent for expressing your feelings and letting your partner (or potential partners) know how you feel. It’s a great evening for a date night. So, go out on the town and have a little fun while you can, because the rest of November is cosmically tricky.
Sunday, November 7, 2021
We close the week out with the Moon moving through spirited Sagittarius. Sunday should be as optimistic and fun filled as Saturday, especially with the Moon sextile benevolent Jupiter. Spend the day with people you enjoy and forget the real world – at least until it knocks on your door on Monday when the Moon moves through Capricorn.
See you next week!
