November 13, 2023

Monday November 13th — The New Moon at 03:28 EST; 00:28 PST; 1:28 EET concentrates the opposition aspects from Scorpio to Uranus retro in Taurus [see chart image].  Mars/Uranus aspects have the potential for violent repercussions, although connected to the luminaries in the fixed power sign of Scorpio, internalizing the conflict on a global, or universal level, involves a level of universal agreement. The Moon transits to the conjunction aspects with Mars and Ceres in Scorpio, and sextile aspect with Pluto. The internalizing of the powers and motives (Mars) of the actors involved is basic to a peaceful resolution, in the least, a cessation of violence.

The Sun reaches partile opposition aspect to Uranus retro, as the Moon makes a trine aspect to Neptune in Pisces, as judgement seems to favor the underdog, in this caase, the powerless majority.
