November 2021 - Astrology Self-Care for Business OwnersNov 01, 2021
by Tenae Stewart, The Witch of Lupine Hollow
This month is truly the witches’ season, with the sun, new moon, Mars and Mercury all transiting in Scorpio. The vibes are deep, dark, and luscious with lots of opportunities to embrace your inner witch, get real in your marketing, and share your shadows.
We’re often told to hide our shadows, flaws, and limiting beliefs away beneath a veneer of love and light if you want to succeed in the spiritual business world… when in fact, delving into the shadow side is where true success – and healing – really lies. Scorpio season is here to usher in a new appreciation for real, raw honesty and showing your true witchy colors in both life and biz.
In the very first week of this month, we have the new moon in Scorpio on November 4 and Mercury finally moving out of Libra, (after a lengthy retrograde transit), and into Scorpio on November 6. With the sun and Mars both already in the sign of witchcraft, occult, and mystery, you may find yourself eager for a fresh start in shadow work. It might also feel well past time to burn down what isn’t working in your business and to delve into your personal underworld and discover hidden truths. Especially once Mercury joins this planetary coven, you might find yourself wanting to document and share this journey with others.
There’s also some strong Venusian vibes this month with both Venus, the planet of love, and Juno, the asteroid of sacred union, meeting up in Capricorn and a partial eclipse happening in Taurus, one of the home signs of Venus.
Venus in Capricorn is likely to have you wanting to give a facelift to your business practices – a rebrand might just be around the corner. Immersing yourself in your work in a way that feels fulfilling and nourishing may just be an alternative form of self-care this month, as well as reorganizing and restructuring. With Juno joining Venus in the sign of practicality and structure, you might even find yourself entering into a new business arrangement with a loved one or falling in love with a coworker!
Finally, on November 19, we’re getting a preview of the Taurus/Scorpio eclipses happening in 2022. Eclipses always occur when a new or full moon is within 13 degrees of the north or south node, which are karmic destiny points on the moon’s orbit. Currently, the north node is in the very early degrees of Gemini and this full moon will happen in the very late degrees of Taurus, giving us an out-of-sign eclipse, (when the full moon is close enough to the north node to form an eclipse but not actually in the same sign).
Starting next spring, we’ll be having lots of Taurus/Scorpio eclipses so this is a preview of the karmic shifts that are to come in the realm of simplifying your life and business, getting in touch with your sensuality, and honoring the dark and the light within.
