Hey star-gazers! This is your weekly astrology forecast for November 21–27, 2022. This is an especially important week for the Sun’s sign change and the New Moon occurring on Wednesday, so let’s dive right in and talk about the energies of the week.
On November 21, we have a conjunction taking place between Venus and Mercury, potentially making this a crucial day for any communications in your relationship.
What’s doubly important to note is that Mercury is in the place of its detriment in Sagittarius, and it’s configured to its sign-ruler by a square.
Jupiter is in domicile, though retrograde, and there are competing opinions around how much domicile cancels out the debilitation of retrogradation, Moreover, Jupiter is also configured to retrograde Neptune in a wide conjunction and squaring Mars in Gemini, which is, of course, the sign of Mercury’s rulership, so, ultimately, proceed with caution in any relationship conversations. The celestial configurations could point towards misunderstanding, a lack of clarity, garbled speech, or an incompatibility between intent and meaning.
Next, on Tuesday, November 22, the Sun enters Sagittarius. As I said last week, the Sun’s entry into the sign of the archer completes an energetic shift that many of us have been waiting for after the heaviness of the Sun’s transit through Scorpio, and, of course, that really challenging eclipse. This is a fantastic week for restoring optimism and inviting adventure in our lives!
For some of us, this energetic shift could correspond with a desire to connect with something higher — be it something philosophical or spiritual — or, alternatively, pursue some sort of expansionary learning that helps open intellectual horizons.
This will also be an important energy to pay attention to, especially since the Sun’s transit will eventually oppose Mars in Gemini, and, of course, be involved in the Gemini Full Moon early next month on the seventh of December.
Before this, however, the Sun and Moon will conjoin in a luscious Sagittarian New Moon on Wednesday, November 23. Co-present the Mercury-Venus conjunction, this energy could lend itself especially well to seeding new intentions in the areas of our life connected to spiritual depth, growth, expansion, intellectual endeavours, and the pursuit of personal truth, whatever that means to us.
This Moon is largely unafflicted by malefics — Mars is only configured by a sign-based opposition and so not especially strong, and Saturn is configured in a sign-based sextile, so while I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this lunation for any magical rituals, some low-key intention-setting could be ideal for helping recalibrate your thoughts and orient your energies in a positive direction.
Finally, as we close out the week, we’ll be under the influence of the Mars-Saturn trine, which will perfect the following week, on the 28th. This said, this energy will already be active this week, so this could be a very useful next few days for any revisioning or re-dos we might be compelled to do as a result of Mars’ retrograde motion.
So, all in all, I do think that this will be one of the better week’s we’ve all had in a while energetically!
