Venus Enters Libra, Mars Opposite Uranus

Venus changes signs on Sunday, November 29, entering Libra. Venus rules Libra, so this makes Venus strong. It's the planet of Peace and Love in the sign of Balance and Harmony, a good thing. But unfortunately while in Libra, Venus will be suffering from Papakatari Yoga, the "bad scissors" pattern formed when there are natural malefic planets on either side of a planet. In this case, Venus is sandwiched between Mars in Virgo and Saturn in Scorpio. Thus, Venus is not fully able to express its benefic energy, making successful Romance and Agreement more difficult to arrive at.
Mars is more closely Opposite Uranus this week. Mars is still in Virgo, and Uranus is opposite in Pisces. As Mars advances in Virgo it becomes more exactly opposite Uranus; the exact opposition will be on December 10. This means the planet of Aggression and Violence and the planet of Sudden Unexpected Events are influencing each other; not a good combination. Thus there is increased potential for more violence, whether by humans or natural causes, over the coming week.

Venus Opposite Uranus, Mercury Conjunct Saturn, Full Moon in Taurus

Venus will be exactly opposite Uranus on Monday, November 23rd. The planet of Love, Beauty, Entertainment, Agreements, and Finances, is already disadvantaged by being in Virgo, its sign of Debilitation (weakness). Now Venus gets afflicted by the planet of Rebellion, Sudden Events, and Disruption. Therefore Venus significations will suffer this week: Romance on the rocks, Agreements get Broken, Financial Markets will be Unstable. Venus moves fairly quickly; by the end of the week the storm has blown over.
Mercury and the Sun are both conjunct Saturn this week, in Scorpio. The planet of Rational Thinking and Reasonable Decisions is exactly conjunct the planet of Harsh Reality and Control, on Tuesday, November 24th, @ 12 deg. Scorpio. The Sun is there as well, adding in the signification of Power and Authority. Therefore, expect more Harsh Decisions this week, especially by Governments and Leaders.
The Full Moon will be on Wednesday, November 25th, @ 9 deg. Taurus. This marks the culmination of the energy of the month of Kartika, a month associated with Important Actions, Resolutions, War, etc. Note that the Full Moon will be within a few degrees of exact opposition to the Saturn-Mercury conjunction, adding more energy for Tense Situations, Serious Thinking, and Tough Decisions.

Mars, Rahu, and Venus still Conjunct; Mercury enters Scorpio

Mars and Rahu are still close together this week, with Venus not far away. Rahu is one of the significators of Fanatics, Mars is War & Destruction, Venus is Pleasures and Entertainment. The violence-prone combination of Mars conjunct the eclipse point Rahu manifested as a terrorist attack in Paris, centered on an entertainment district. The factors of the energy pattern are getting some separation from each other as the days go by; therefore not as intense, but still capable of creating events. More Details in this week's video blog.
Mercury enters Scorpio on Monday, November 16. The planet of Data and Information will be in the sign of Secrets and Investigations for the next three weeks, until Dec 5. This combination will ensure a lot of Media focus on recent events for the rest of this month.

Venus Conjunct Rahu, Mars Conjunct Rahu, Libra New Moon

Venus will be exactly conjunct Rahu, @ 6 deg Virgo, on Sunday, November 8. The planet of Beauty, Art, Entertainment, Pleasures, etc. comes together with the eclipse point signifying Obsession and The Unusual. This energy pattern has been functioning for the past week, and continues this week. Venus, planet of Guidance, is debilitated in the sign Virgo, and therefore the downside of Venus is more likely: Selfishness.
Mars is exactly conjunct Rahu, @ 5 deg Virgo, Wednesday-Thursday November 11 -12. This is a rather problematic combination, since Mars is Action and Aggression, and Rahu signifies Unusual Events. Rahu, as an eclipse point, can also be Confusing and Deceitful. Therefore, the energy this week is rather suspect; better to stick to routine actions and not give in to crazy impulses.
The New Moon will be on Wednesday, November 11, @ 24 deg Libra. This marks the beginning of the Lunar month of Kartika, named for Krittika, the nakshatra of the Full Moon, which will be on Nov 24. This month is associated with Making Big Decisions, Transformations, and Aggression. The energy of the lunar month is in keeping with the energy of the Mars-Rahu conjunction. The conjunction of Venus-Rahu-Mars indicates a lot of Passion and Volatility, and is not particularly reasonable. Therefore, important decisions are best put off until next month.
