“I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer, but it is too proud. So I like best of all autumn, because its tone is mellower, its colors are richer, and it is tinged a little with sorrow. Its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor of the power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. —Lin Yutang
There is something about autumn that can remind us about the importance of acceptance, wisdom and finding our inner peace. Sun passing through the constellation of Libra at this time of the year can also have to do with the principle of balance and harmony, especially until Nov. 16th. After that, Sun moves into the constellation of Scorpio and we may be asked to look at what we’re willing to let go of in order to experience some kind of rebirth inwardly and outwardly. We discard what is no longer necessary, give things away or make them available to others because we’ve outgrown what is no longer essential to our lives.
Actually, to let go of the nonessentials can be quite liberating and freeing. It’s time to carry a lighter load and simplify, as we began to prepare for the celebrations that take place on Thanksgiving and during the Christmas season. We get an early start by looking ahead and focusing on what’s truly important: our relationships and deeper emotional connections with others.
Venus and Mars transit the constellation of Virgo. This generally brings a focus on service, diet and health. Even the little things can have great impact, such as exercising 15 minutes a day or cutting down on foods that might not be in our best interest. By doing so, we can increase our energy, feel better and perhaps be less critical of others. There’s something about accepting others’ faults that can make relationships feel more loving and joyful. Between the 8th and 12th, there may also be an added intensity to our relationships, as the emotions around them may be intensified. Love affairs and intimacy can also take on added importance.
Sun and Mercury conjunct Saturn between the 24th and 29th and places more emphasis on handling practical or business affairs, as we look at some of the restricted areas in our lives and decide on a new course of action. There may also be an important decision to make regarding health or job conditions that shows the benefits of following certain proceedures or restrictions. Healthwise, some may experience a temporary dip in vitality, then renewal.
Overal, November indicates a greater sense of peace and a quiet certainty. With the help of a supportive environment the month can be quite beautiful.
Best wishes to everyone,
Sincerely, Haizen Paige
