Find out what the stars have in store for you. Leading Astrologer, Janet Amid tells all about your November 2020 horoscope.

Dear Readers,

 We finally made it through the muddle of this past year, as many of the planets in transit were totally at odds; we definitely felt the heat. The surge of the chaotic energies at hand were a bit much causing many of us to feel unsettled and out of sorts. The two major retrogrades, Venus, the planet of money and love from May through June 2020, as well as Mars, the planet of action & motivation from September through November 13 have been difficult, yet we still prevailed. And now, currently, Mercury in retrograde from October 13 ending November 3, 2020 at 12:50 PM EST will be the final retrograde for a while.

So now we Breathe!

So much this past year has taken us off course, our sense of normalcy, life as we knew it totally disrupted. Hopefully, as we begin the holidays, we prepare for our lives, our comfort zones to be restored. As my father always said, “Our free will is the higher law of the universe”. We create our own existence, though sometimes it can be disrupted by other circumstances. Though in the end, it all boils down to our perception, how we choose to live. Hugs to all ~ Janet

 MERCURY THE PLANET OF CHAT DIRECT – NOVEMBER 3- When Mercury is in retrograde, communication gets lost in the shuffle. As it moves direct now in Libra – the key to understanding is all about balance. This has been a crazy mental and physical ride as both Mercury and Mars in retrograde have stirred the pot. Now as we approach the holiday season hopefully there will be a hint of serenity. Mentally, we hope to be more at peace.

ELECTION DAY 2020- Most of us astrologers are looking at Tuesday, November 3, with trepidation because for most of the day, Mercury the planet of chat will be in retrograde until 12:50 PM EST. This particular retrograde is the last one for the year, and to top it off ending on the day of the election. Happening in such an fervent, unearthing sign as Scorpio, moving backwards in to Libra, the sign of justice, it prepares us for an interesting ride to say the least. It also suggests that there will be many voting controversies and confusion once the dust has settled.

 *The last time Mercury was in retrograde during a presidential election was during the discordant Bush/Gore disaster in 2000 when the Supreme Court had to settle a ruling based on a dispute from the results from the state of Florida. No surprise as Mercury in retrograde, specifically in Scorpio created an imbalance, lack of trust, questionable actions relating to the unearthing of issues that were swept under the carpet. Presently, both parties for the Presidential seat have their astrological pros and cons. But who knows? No matter who wins, the turbulence will continue, even after the win. It may take until Jan or as late as March 2021 when things finally settle down.

 NEW MOON IN SCORPIO – NOVEMBER 15, 2020 – This upcoming SCORPIO NEW MOON signals a time to re-examine ourselves. Taking a look at our deepest desires. Breaking down the barriers – sometimes matters become more clearer as well as intense under the illumination of the New Moon – emotions open up, we are deeply energized when dealing with ourselves as well as others. New Moon in Scorpio brings with it the energies of full commitment coming from the heart, or the exact opposite: breaking up and breaking hearts. This New Moon supports dedication, conviction and commitment to whatever you choose. These energies support what you want, not always what you need.

 FULL MOON IN GEMINI – NOVEMBER 30 – creates an intense vortex of mental “emotion” as you seek to bend and stretch your intelligence so as to hold two (or more) approaches to the issue you confront. Are you experiencing breakthroughs in perception that at times are unnerving and other times inspiring? This is a Mercurial Full Moon once again inviting mental flexibility — the psychic space to change your mind. This gives you freedom to make shifts, and align with the leading edge of your soul purpose.A Full Moon is opposite of the Sun, and can create a physical as well as emotional feeling of tug-pull. Those born under the Mercurial sign of Virgo and Gemini as greatly affected. Also those in opposition in Sagittarius can feel the intensity. For others much depends on your time birth, as to where it falls in your birth chart.

 MARS IN RETROGRADE – MOVING DIRECT -.Understanding the energy at hand, it’s best time to continue forward with set goals, and/or begin anything new after NOVEMBER 13 when direct.

Make a note to self, work through issues that have been clouding your judgment.This particular transit has been intense, and quite overwhelming so now it is time to get back in gear.
