The astrology forecast for the week of November 15, 2021 – November 21, 2021 features 7 planetary aspects (Sun square Jupiter, Sun sextile Pluto, Mars oppose Uranus, Mercury trine Neptune, Mercury square Jupiter, and Mercury sextile Pluto), the Sun moving out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius, and a lunar eclipse in Taurus.
Astrologically, this is a hectic week with one of the most volatile aspects of the year. So, let’s dig right in…
The prime newsmaker this week is a lunar eclipse that occurs on Friday, November 19, 2021 at 28 Taurus. This lunar eclipse is sandwiched between the fixed stars Caput Algol (off with your head) and Alcyone (something to cry about), so it is intense, especially as Venus rules the eclipse and is in Capricorn. Eclipse energy is highly potent. If you know your chart, look at the house with Taurus on the cusp, and this will reveal the areas of life that will be influenced.
Here is a cheat sheet to help you with topics.
The sign of Taurus has to do with resources, money, and values. These are subjects are often activated with an eclipse in the sign of the bull. Since astrology is an instructive language, this eclipse tells us that we need to look at how we manage our financial matters, how we obtain goods, and what is important to us. I have long believed that our checkbooks reveal where our true values lie, because it is a ledger of what we purchase and where we spend our funds.
Since this eclipse is conjoined two negative fixed stars, we can expect financial woes to be headline news and potentially further problems with the supply chain. We can also expect political infighting related to money to become increasingly tense.
So, word to the wise – get your shopping done early this holiday season.
