GREETINGS, BELOVED ASTROLOGY LOVERS!

This year of Fire is winding down to the end, and it’s almost time to take stock and see where in our lives things have shifted and changed – with the recent shift of Jupiter into Scorpio and the worldwide media coverage of the #metoo movement, secrets and sexuality are hot topics for all of us – and the aim is growth and expansion of these issues so that transformation is wrought. It’s heavy, heady stuff, and it’s deep, dark and emotional, but ultimately the goal is to shift our worldviews and ideas of power, sexuality and control.

The theme of this month seems to stay on sexuality and relationships, as Mars and Venus dance together in relationship orientated Libra, and Jupiter cruises fast through Scorpio, along with the Sun and Mercury, creating a strong emphasis on mystery, change, letting go and surrender. What area of your life is governed by Scorpio – whichever house this sign falls in, is going to get an extra boost and its issues will be brought to the fore to be transformed and dealt with. And it won’t always be easy.

With the New Moon at the end of the month, we can set some new intentions around these issues and to do with that area of our lives – and this Moon has a powerful potential to really change things around. We can also tap into our sexuality and do some deep healing there and perhaps with the other, whether or not we are in a relationship. This month has the potential to create enormous shifts

With that said, as usual, I will be including information for my upcoming workshops, courses and retreats in the emailer. If you wish to just read your ‘scopes, just scroll a little further down and there will be your guidance for the next month!

So with that all said and done, let’s look ahead to November –

Dates and signs of the Moon Cycles for November: 

Full Moon : 4 Nov, 11 Taurus

This is a time to LET GO of something that no longer serves you as the Moon begins to wane, in line with the house that the degree of the Moon falls into. It is also a time in which a light will be shone into that area of life and stirred up. It is a time in which your original intention at New Moon could be fulfilled.

The axis of the Moons this month falls in Taurus and Scorpio, and with this luscious Full Moon, in a sign the Moon luxuriates in, we are called to put down our weapons and surrender to pleasure, surrender control and drink and make merry – this Moon feels easy, smooth and delectable, dreamy with a connection to Neptune, creative and juicy – perhaps it’s time to just let go of control. We might go to excess, especially with the opposition to Jupiter, and we might need to watch ourselves.

New Moon: 18 Nov, 26 Scorpio

This is the time to SET INTENTIONS in the line of something that you want to manifest in your life, as the Moon begins to gather light and grow, shaping our desires and needs, in line with the house that the degree of the New Moon falls into. It is a time to make our dreams come true, and we should align ourselves with what we truly want at this time.

This intense New Moon asks us to set intentions that are healing for us – sexually, emotionally and to renew our relationship to power, to use it properly and wisely. We can welcome in surrender to external forces and more control of our own worlds, to welcome in change and transformation, endings and new beginnings.

Important Astrology Dates :

Neptune goes Direct, 2 November, 11 Pisces

Neptune in the sign of Pisces is quite happy – it’s an inspiring and creative mix, a combination that feels sacred and escapist, imaginative and spiritual. Our levels of compassion are increased now, our desire to help others, our pull towards the deeper spiritual mysteries. We have to be careful of too much escapism, of losing ourselves in others, in substance, in dreams and fantasies. Boundaries are a theme with Neptune in this timeless sign, and we are in a state of constantly examining what is ours and what belongs to others.

Those of us who have any planets, or our Ascendants between 11 and 14 degrees of Pisces are certainly feeling as if we’re swimming in a sea of glass – we can feel very dazed and confused, and we are challenged to see things as they are, and not as we want them to be. Deceptions can surface and disappointments can be experienced, but our empathy and ability to forgive is also greatly increased, and an opportunity to really go with the flow.

**To see how the planets affect you personally, simply access Astro.com to explore your chart, or contact me for an in depth & insightful  reading. **

And to end off, here are your monthly horoscopes, sign by sign, based on your Sun Sign – savour, and enjoy!

  scorpio Sag LeoAries

 Aries

Work is pretty much on your mind this month, Aries, and unfortunately it’s not the glamourous side – it’s the day in and day out kinda thing, and your routine might benefit form a little bit of shaking up – try incorporating more freedom into your schedule before you get too bored! On the upside, love is looking bright and sparkly for the month of November, and even you, one of the most adventurous signs, will start thinking about what commitment means – and wanting it. You’ll be more willing to negotiate than usual, more docile, if that’s possible for you fire signs, and you might have to make sure you’re not subverting all of your own needs for your special other, as starry eyed as you are! If the two of you work towards an equally balanced relationship, the chances are you’ll truly feel as if you have found the One. The physical attraction will be on fire, too, so make some time for sweet romance, the stars are aligned just for you!

Taurus

In love, Taurus? If not yet, then this month looks like a sweet, sweet one for you, and you won’t have to look very far at all to find that person. They could be right under your nose, in fact, perhaps you see them at gym every day (well, just about – you are a Taurus after all and prefer wine on the couch to sweating it out), or maybe they’re a work colleague. Whatever the case is, make sure your eyes are wide open for romantic possibility. There can be an abundance of affection and love in your present relationship if you are attached, and being together will feel just so easy. If you are looking to get into a better routine, to beautify yourself, this is your time – it can be all too easy to indulge right now, and the stars are asking for you to take good care of yourself so that you can show the world how gorgeous you are!  

 Gemini

This can be a somewhat intense month, Gemini. Intensity is not exactly your best thing, but you do have a side that is intrigued and pulled towards the deeper side of life. This is an excellent time to purge anything that no longer serves you and shed some old skin. Change up your routine a little, try something new, something different – after you, you do love change. You’ll be wanting more meaningful conversations, more intense connections and power will be a strong theme this month between you and another – be it for business or pleasure. Work will demand a lot out of you, and there might be some control issues from someone up above – or maybe it’s you – but it will be a growth experience for you more than a challenge. You’ll feel expansive and open, and your imagination will by flying – apply that to work, and it could be likely you see yourself getting promoted.

Cancer

Although Cancerians are thought to love just being at home, close to family and friends, roots firmly planted, you’re actually some of the most travel-y people around! You need change, yet at the same time, you never forget or let go of the people dear to you. Your sign is the one that, strangely enough, most often relocates and often for love. This month sees possible travel, maybe for business or work, or related to health – maybe you’ll feel a need for a new climate, something more supportive. You’ll be optimistic in general, and easygoing, perhaps a little less moody. Your moods will entirely revolve around where you are at the moment, and how to move away from where you are. You might choose study as a potential way to expand this month, Cancer – whatever it is, make sure you’re making the right choice, and are not deceiving yourself.

Leo

Career and family are both on your mind this month, Leo, and it’s very possible that you could see yourself getting a powerful new position or getting promoted – at the end of the day, you will be holding more power and control. At the same time, you’ll be dying to also just nest and be at home, to create a secure and safe physical space for yourself. Whether that translates into making your current home a little prettier, moving or just being at home a lot, then work with that and don’t force yourself into an uncomfortable space. You might need the down time to handle the changes at work, as they can be sudden and quite shocking. Expect big change this month, Leo, and learn to ride the wave – even as a fire sign, an element that loves adventure, you tend to resist change unless self-initiated. Try and be more flexible as it will help you handle the potential roller-coaster.   

Virgo

You’re usually quite an introvert, Virgo, but this month looks like a very special one, with lots of deep connections being made with others. You love a good conversation, as an analytical and mental sign, and this month sees you venture a little deeper. Perhaps you make some connections that urge you to explore a different side of life, and you can benefit from doing a few workshops here and there. In doing this, you will gain more friends, connect with more interesting people and have stimulating conversation.  Your mind is geared to the bigger picture for once, and you’re not getting lost in details as usual. You’re more able to take a fact and make it a belief and you tend toward thinking and communicating differently over November. You might make contact with a community that changes your life quite substantially, and I would urge you to be more open to change and potential transformation in your daily life.

Libra

After a bumper birthday month, it’s your time to take a step back and have a breather, Libra. You’re normally very social, but this time sees you withdraw a little to prepare for the festive season. It might be that you decide to spend more time being creative, or desire to be alone with just the one you love. One warning – be careful of falling for someone you can’t have, and don’t give everything up to be loved. Try and find more balance, and make sure you are getting as much as you are giving. If you are not getting your needs met, it will be your own fault, as you are tending towards burying any anger or hurt feelings and this might make you feel a bit martyred. Be brave, Libra, and let the love in your life flourish and be healthy – there is beautiful potential for your relationships to be stronger and deeper this month.

Scorpio

The last few years have been rough, Scorpio, we know. But now, as Jupiter has entered your sign for the next year, expect enormous growth and expansion, more freedom, more opportunities, and generally just more happiness all around. It’s your time to step out and be seen, be loved and be acknowledged. Things will flow toward you this November, Scorpio, so be sure not to just sit back – reach out and grab what is at hand to make the most of it. You’ll be having brilliant conversations with people that matter, feel empowered and more in control of your destiny than ever before. You might feel a touch restless, and you’re likely to get some surprising news around work that you might not have expected, and need to be flexible about. You do struggle with change, so just try and roll with it.  

Sagittarius

You’re so close, Sagittarius – Saturn is about to leave your sign, which means that you’re about to feel a hell of a lot freer than you’ve felt in years – only two more months to go! In the meantime, focus on fiancés this month, and try to make a list of all your expenditures, income and any dependencies. See where you can earn more, pay off debt and cut back, and expect change – things won’t be all that stable and you’ll have to learn how to be a little creative with your money – as well as responsible. You have grown so much, Sagittarius, and this is not a depressing time for you at all, as “boring” as this month might sound, it’s just another step in the right direction for you. You might have a family member asking for more than you can give, so be careful of fostering any dependency, especially if it’s financial. On the upside, your social life looks great and there is potential for plenty of love coming your way!

Capricorn

You have a tough one ahead of you. Capricorn, but it will make you stronger, for sure. You have the power this month to make yourself more heard, to speak your truth and to be quite influential in what you’re saying – use this power for good and create positive change around you, because your perception really does have the power to shift your personal reality right now. Don’t let guilt or fear fester inside you, and don’t run away from your fears – face them with bravery and you’ll find that they’re not nearly as bad as you imagined. You’ll be quite withdrawn over November and you won’t want many people to come in – if any at all. At the same time, you can have a positive frame of mind and when you spend this time alone, you’ll find emotional reservoirs of strength you never knew you had.  

Aquarius

Expect a pretty chilled month ahead of you, Aquarius. The last few have been somewhat intense, but November gives you a bit of a break. As a social sign, you love being out and about, but November sees you nesting a little and perhaps even spending more time with family over friends – unusual for you! Make some time to make home a lovely place to be, and think about doing some renovations or decorating. You’ll be networking with some lovely people workwise, people that vibrate on your level, are mature, yet quirky and differ in some way, and you’ll take a lot of pleasure on marrying the old and new in your life – be it work related or socially related. You’re very disciplined this month in terms of your goals, yet at the same time you have a lot of personal freedom to do something different each day.

Pisces

This is such a creative time for you, Pisces. Make space to do some art, catch up on drawing, crafts, music or whatever it is that lets you escape into a world of imagination and fantasy. You’ll be feeling like tapping into your inner child and playing a little, and self-expression will be a strong theme for you. Your ruler, Jupiter, has moved into a new sig, the sign of Scorpio,, and this time has a lot of emphasis on sex and sexuality for you – open to new possibilities, new relationships, deeper connections and give yourself room to grow and transform, shedding old skin that you no longer need. Spiritually, this is a strong time for you and you have a greater desire to develop a philosophy that you can live by.  This is a golden month, Pisces, so enjoy it – play, dance, learn, travel and create!
