Astrology for Healers and Therapists – November 2020

Before I look at this month’s charts I must point out that the interpretation is mainly for therapists dealing with problematic situations. That is why I seem to emphasise the problem or negative side of life rather than the positive. Of course the charts indicate a general situation but the leaning must be for those clients or patients who are struggling in some way.

First do please note that the following is using the WESTERN FOUR ELEMENT system based in western magical and astrological understanding. The individual therapist must make the translation to the Eastern Five Element system that is usual in Shiatsu and Acupuncture theory. If you have forgotten the explanation about Elemental and Modal make up then do refresh your memory by looking back at the Introduction to Astrology for Healers and Therapists.

I look at the charts for the Sundays in November when the Sun is nearing the mid heaven for that day. Obviously this is for Haye Mill, so you will have to accept the approximation for your own geographical position but the interpretation should not vary too much from this one. It is a way of following the general trends throughout the month. Notice there are 5 Sundays in this month once again.

The tension during the last few months grew to a climax as October progressed until the last weekend when there looked to be an emotional release. 

I know that most of you have followed the situation and interpreted the charts in the light of the Covid pandemic.  I put my head on the block last month as it looked as if something was going to change as the pressure of the bundle eased significantly.  As I write this mid- month I have no idea if the emotional climate in the country has changed, but do remember that this is primarily about the prevailing mood swings to help Healers and Therapists – not a predictive snap shot of the nation’s ills. Let’s see how things appear for November.

The week beginning the 1st November

The bundle is still present but no longer part of a T-Square.  Venus appears to be unaspected.  The Sun is no longer challenging the bundle and also Mercury no longer challenges Uranus.  However the bundle still dominates the chart.

Cardinal 6 – Fixed 3 – Mutable 1

Fire 1 – Earth 5 – Air 2 – Water 2

Cardinal has gained two signs at the expense of both Fixed and Mutable as each has lost a sign.  Water has lost a sign to Air.  Earth still dominates the elemental scene.

Although life is still essentially one full of challenge a degree of thought has come into play that itself challenges preconceptions and some basic held tenets.  Personal defence ploys are particularly under fire which could mean they are strengthened under pressure or give way to some degree.

Counsellors – Although Clients tend to be protective and defensive, given empathic strokes they should begin to let go of cherished ideas and look afresh at their understanding of reality.

Healers – There is a far more positive Earth predominance that leads to healing at all levels of being.  A great week to work.

The week beginning 8th November

Venus is now in opposition to Mars but note the effect of the bundle is diminishing as its dropping two aspects.  The Sun now longer challenges Uranus but forms a line of ease with Neptune.  Apart from the Moon’s rapid move across the heavens Uranus is apparently unaspected.  Mercury has resumed its forwards march again.

Cardinal 6 – Fixed 3 – Mutable 1

Fire 2 – Earth 4 – Air 2 – Water 2

The Modal scene is unchanged from last week but Earth has lost a sign to Fire.  

Reason, rather than emotion, is beginning to make itself felt, but inner conflict will be much in evidence as feminine passivity and acceptance vies with masculine aggression and action.  The Moon’s influence will be particularly felt as a consequence as emotions come into play then fall away again.

Counsellors –A much more confused picture to work with this week.  Yet get beyond the obvious and Client’s inner core feelings should be accessible, despite the outward appearance.

Healers – The healing energy is still very strong and more balanced than before.  You can certainly use this quite easily.

The week beginning 15th November

Mercury has moved into Scorpio and no longer challenges the bundle but challenges Uranus instead.  Venus has taken up the challenge to the bundle leaving Mars unaspected for now.  Mars has also turned to a forward motion in the heavens leaving only Uranus and Neptune being retrograde.

Cardinal 5 – Fixed 4 – Mutable 1

Fire 1 – Earth 4 – Air 1 – Water 4

Cardinal has lost a sign to Fixed whilst both Fire and Air has lost a sign each to Water.

Although emotions remain strong there is not so much of a swing.  Things are beginning to settle down.  It is likely that remorse will be evident as life’s lessons are reviewed and embraced.

Counsellors – Be careful not to rub your Clients up the wrong way.  Things will be staring them in the face anyhow this week.  Gentle but firm is the way forwards.

Healers – You will probably find the healing energies less powerful or malleable this week.  You cannot have it all your own way all of the time!

The week beginning 22nd November 

The Sun has moved into Sagittarius and both Mars and Uranus appear unaspected.  The bundle is still present but diminishing in influence all the time.  Venus has also moved into Scorpio. 

Cardinal 4 – Fixed 3 – Mutable 3

Fire 2 – Earth 4 – Air 0 – Water 4

Both Cardinal and Fixed have lost a sign each to Mutable whilst Air has lost its only sign to Fire.    

No sudden shifts or moves this week as people take stock of a developing new situation.  Those life lessons have been generally taken on board, but to what effect?

Counsellors – You will probably find Clients unresponsive this week.  It is not really your fault.  Just go with the flow.

Healers – the lack of Air will cause problems this week.  There could well be problems developing with Lung and Large Intestine meridians.

The week beginning 29th November 

The Sun is apparently unaspected, as is Neptune an Mars.  Uranus is now challenging Venus.  There are very few aspect lines especially if you discount those rapidly changing with the Moon’s progress.  Neptune is now no longer retrograde.

Cardinal 4 – Fixed 4 – Mutable 2

Fire 2 – Earth 5 – Air 0 – Water 3

Mutable has lost a sign to Fixed and Water lost a sign to Earth.   

A greater understanding is dawning about those Life’s Lessons.  Yet it is not so much thought through as accepted at a deeper level of being.

Counsellors – Don’t push it.  Let things ride this week if you can.

Healers – the lack of Air will continue to cause problems this week.  Be patient with you patients!  There is not much movement that you can make use of energetically. 

Onwards but slowly.
