Mars breaks up the tension between himself and Saturn on September 24 by moving into Venus' air sign, Libra, joining Mercury and Sun on November Mars and Saturn have been mutually aspecting each other since Mars entered Virgo, which can create tension or a push-pull dynamic.
As mentioned, the energy of Mercury added to Mars can be quite productive, especially when we exercise patience and some prudence. The first ten days of Mars' transit through Libra is marked by an equally passionate exchange of signs with Venus, who will be in Mars' water sign of Scorpio through November 20, which is also the day that Mercury resumes direct motion.
The last ten days of November, with Mercury direct and sharing space with Mars, could be well spent by really applying energy, power and resources to current undertakings. Things that are already in motion could be well supplied with enthusiasm and energy to further agendas and plans. Let's remember that Rahu is still exalted in Gemini and that one of the places his energy hits is Libra, along with Aquarius, as Rahu's aspects mirror Jupiter's, who affects all signs of the same element from where they are placed.

As always during full Moon, the Sun is positioned in the opposite sign, Libra, and is joined by Mars, aspecting his own sign of Aries and also retrograde Mercury. This is an interesting and strong Moon moment, as Bharani nakshatra is lorded by Venus and located within Aries, lorded by Mars.

At this time of this full Moon, these two planets, Venus and Mars, are enjoying a powerful exchange of signs, which should be supportive for relationships, mental well-being and almost any kind of creative or building project. As mentioned above, this is known as Kartik Purnimaa, the full Moon when it falls in Krittika nakshatra. To be exact, this full Moon is a couple of hours away from reaching Krittika territory, but since it is so close, we still consider it Kartik Purnimaa, even though the Moon's exact moment of fullness came in Bharani.
Since this moment occurs before sunrise, it is still considered Monday by the traditional reckoning, which is also the Moon's own day of the week. This further strengthens this Moon, who is reflecting the light of the Sun, who is not as happy in Venus' sign of Libra. This time around the full Moon may be great for getting perspective. With no other planets conjoining the Moon, we may be either inspired to take some time alone for quiet reflection or be forced into it.
Either way, place an intention to calmly perceive the current situation, pause to regain your energy and then move forward. The Sun has a much better relationship with his friend Mars than Venus. Moving from Venus' air sign, Libra, into Mars' territory of Scorpio will help the Sun, who we rely on for truth, clarity and self-definition. Additionally, by moving out of Libra, the Sun escapes the aspect of Rahu, which can also tend to confuse or muddle the pure intentions of the Sun.
Scorpio is co-ruled by Mars and Ketu, the south node of the Moon. With Mars in Libra and Ketu in Sagittarius, they are squeezing their own sign on either side. It may be helpful to take time out of the normal daily routine and inject some deep self-reflection. Planning ways to retreat from the norm in order form new strategies for managing self-care, exercise routines, work schedules, properties or spiritual practices could be very productive. Activities supported by the Sun's light in Scorpio include introspection and meditative activities, deep cleaning and removal of waste, poetry, journaling, overcoming negative habits, resource management.
Retrograde Mercury is very strong in the sense that retrograde motion can increase the inherent qualities of a planet as well as confusing them, much like the energy that the nodes Rahu and Ketu can add to a planet's effects when conjoining or aspecting.
Mercury Retrograde November 12222 ~ Healing Venom
In this case, retrograde Mercury has just dipped back into Swati nakshatra, which is ruled by Rahu as well as receiving a very tight aspect from exalted Rahu who currently occupies Mercury's sign of Gemini. Rahu has become even more powerful due to his transit through Ardra nakshatra, which he rules. The end result is that there is a bunch of static being created around Mercury, so it may be difficult to get a clear message out or to receive the proper information or data around this time.
It is best to wait at least a few days after Mercury resumes direct motion to attack problems that require the brilliance and flexibility of Mercury. All of the planets will remain in direct motion until Mercury initiates another retrograde cycle in mid-February Take a few deep breaths and don't get ahead of yourself, but do make plans for your communications and business projects to move along in the next few months. That is a ton of zodiacal territory to cover and in the process he passes by Jupiter, Ketu, Saturn and Sun by mid-January.
This could be a busy time for building relationships, setting plans into motion, business deals, writing projects, educational pursuits and networking.
Get to it, but again, with Jupiter running at top speed and Mercury running even faster, it may be a good idea to consciously slow down and deeply consider each step.
