How the Planetary Shifts in November 2023 Will Change You!

Planetary transits are transformative periods. These periods, though temporary, bring about drastic changes in our lives.

Various transits occur throughout the month. Transits overlap and, thus, create a complicated mosaic of changes that’s often difficult to comprehend.
Transits can be both relaxing and stressful. The nature of transits vary, and so do their effects on our mind and body. The subtle energies these transits send immensely transform us mentally and spiritually. Even the cells, the smallest unit of your body, are receptive to these changes and react according to these cosmic markers.
Wherever the planets jump during their transit, their sole purpose is to make us aware of our material and spiritual potential. Along with awakening our inherent potential, they give us a chance to understand the cosmic play that so heavily influences our lives.

Transits Are the Best Time to Fuel Your Inner Workings

Transits are like fireflies. Just like flashes of brief light, planetary transits give us an insight into our personal traits. Though for a brief moment, they shed light onto something- some dominant element that was there but yet hidden from your eyes. Be mindful of that moment and catch it! It's all about discovering who you are and navigating the toughest challenges.
Only adversity can forge you!
Transits are synonymous with personal growth. If you are open to them, they have so much to offer. In that confusing life mesh, transits equip you with powerful tools to nick open the net and set yourself free of all the past limitations and hindrances.
Transits could leave you in the lurch but, in the end, push you a step towards unveiling your real purpose.
They make ‘self-discovery’ a plausible term. Though we may feel it happens by chance, transits actually plan this ultimate discovery by helping us observe our thoughts and nudging us to act in the right direction.
The shift is tremendous, but only after it has turned your world upside down. Be it relationships, career choices or spiritual ascension, just like that glowing firefly, it transits around us at the moment, triggers our potential and enables us to become mindful of all that’s happening around us.
