SCORPIO October 24 – November 22 Happy Birthday Soaring Eagles! Your personal new year begins with velvety Venus in Scorpio bringing all her magnetism to you, so use this sweet power! With Venus in your sign it’s hard for anyone to resist your charms. People are totally attracted to you and your talents and creative skills are more appreciated which makes it a wonderful time to ask for what you want and need in your life. Mighty Jupiter helps too, adding his Leo golden glow to your career zone. It is one of the best times ever to reach and even surpass goals you want to achieve. Lord of Karma Saturn remains in Scorpio continuing to urge (force!) you to redefine who you always thought you were. Many of you already have, and resurrected like fiery Phoenix filled with more power and awareness than ever before. If you are still in the midst of transformation know that Venus helps sooth Saturn’s stern nature and eases any growing pains. November’s astro energy brings co-ruler Mars into your mental/communication zone where main ruler Pluto has been stationed for 6 years. Mars here adds extra mental stamina and motivational drive to get even more accomplished. Mars connects with Pluto on 11/10 – for the first time in 2 years deep revelations are possible. The challenge this month is around your tendency to think you know best and lord this over everyone. Learn to listen more so you’ll recognize good advice when you hear it, and remember to tune into your deep and powerful inner ‘gut brain’ to guide you and you’ll be soaring high!
SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 20 Dear Sagittarius, Your ruler Jolly Jupiter continues to bring his Leo gold to the territory you like best – your travel adventure and higher mind zone. It’s a wonderful time to travel the world and learn about new cultures or invite an exchange student to stay with your family. If you are involved in education as student or teacher it is time to shine! Your creative abilities are more inspired, so if you want to get published or see your artwork in a great gallery just know your general Saggie good luck is amplified too. Lay your aces on the table and expect to win the game! The game of life that is. When it comes to finances, more discipline is required. Mars travels in your money zone all month for the first time in 2 years, and joins transformer Pluto stationed here long term. Motivational Mars can help you buckle down and pay off that credit card dept or get the down-payment for the new house you want, and generally helps you get more serious about your financial flow. You know you need to do this, so call upon your wise Sage self, suck it up and pull your money belt tighter. If this makes you feel a bit down, not to worry. Sweet Venus romps into Sagittarius on 11/16 to lasso fun times for you! The New Moon is in Sagittarius on 11/22 – a perfect time to set positive intentions.
CAPRICORN December 21 – January 19 Dear Sturdy Goats, November’s astro energy brings motivational (pushy!) Mars front and center for you. Mars will be in Capricorn all month (thru 12/4). Mars in Capricorn is called “exalted” because your earthy, capable sign brings ‘adult in the room’ maturity to tame Mars’ rammy nature. Mars has not been here since Nov. 2012, so you may have forgotten what it feels like to have this extra added energy. On the plus side you’ve got more ability to accomplish, well…anything! On the flip side Mars here can bring out your Billy Goat Gruff side (haughty mean-streak!) so everyone runs away scared and/or it can also mean people recognize your managerial abilities and make more demands on your time than you want to give. At mid month Mars meets up with Pluto stationed in Capricorn long term urging (forcing!) you to transform in major ways. Mars joining with Pluto helps this transformation – like it or not! Velvet Venus travels in your networking connections zone and will conference with your ruler Saturn on 11/13, so if you need some outside guidance call upon your circle of friends.
AQUARIUS January 20 – February 19 Dear Aquarius, Career goals and outer world activity are highlighted in November. Stately Saturn has been stationed in your worldly zone for over 2 years and this month Venus shines here too. Since October 2012 Saturn has been urging (demanding!) you to restructure your position in the world. It is the time to step up to a new plate of responsibility in your career, or perhaps find a new career entirely and/or a new place to be in the world. Gentle Venus meets up with Saturn on 11/13 and adds her sweeter touch to help you make necessary decisions with an easier attitude. Meanwhile Jupiter continues to expand your relationship territory which is generally a good thing. Partners are doing well which gives you a positive boost. Be careful of anyone who is a control freak though. Jupiter’s position this month could create conflict between your needs and someone close to you who has other ideas. It pays to listen to good advice but you could get off track if you let anyone talk you out of plans you know are the best for you.
PISCES February 20 – March 20 Dear Shimmering Fish, The astro news for you this month is that after 4 1/2 months of reverse motion ruler Neptune turns direct in Pisces (at 4°) on 11/16. This means your own satellite dish gets re-tuned to a better frequency and helps you feel more grounded. (As much as a flowy Pisces can!) Chiron turns forward in Pisces too (at 13°) on 11/23, so stuck keys loosen and doors open up to new dimensions. The Sun and Venus in fellow water sign Scorpio add a nice touch too as they glide through your higher mind zone. They trigger similar themes to last month’s Solar Eclipse in Scorpio which helps you focus better on what you need to manifest long term goals. Mars travels in your networking zone for the first time in 2 years this month. His motivational energy prompts you to reach out more to your circle of friends and other community and professional connections where you are likely to find great support and mature advice. Just be careful not to get all rosy-eyed and turn your power over to someone who really does not have good ideas but wants you to think they do, especially when it comes to financial advice. See Intro for details on Neptune.
ARIES March 21 – April 21 Dear Aries, November’s astro energy finds ruler Mars in Capricorn traveling in your career/outer world zone all month (thru 12/4). Mars has not visited here in 2 years, so this means a big boost of worldly activity for you. On 11/10 Mars connects with transformer Pluto who has been stationed in this same zone for 6 years. This meeting adds to the potential for major action around your career goals. Mars in Capricorn brings a disciplined touch to your usual impetuous Aries nature, so you are more able to maintain focus on what you want to get across. At the same time mighty Jupiter in fellow fire sign Leo continues to brighten your creative concepts adding more fuel to your ability to persuade and close the deal. The only thing to be careful about is underestimating or totally overlooking other people’s hidden agendas. Luckily gentle Venus has your back and will warn you about who you can trust, or not.
TAURUS April 22 – May 20 Dear Taurus, November begins on a nice note for you with ruler Venus gracing your relationship zone. Stern teacher Saturn has been here for 2 years demanding you to set appropriate boundaries with all relationships across the board from love and marriage to family and business. Venus in Scorpio adds a velvet touch to soften even the toughest relationship and partnership issues, so those necessary boundaries get a nicer outline. For the first time in 2 years Mars travels in fellow earth sign Capricorn all month adding a mature component to your higher mindset. Mars motivates you to get your concepts across and promote your vision of the way things should be. Challenges may come from family members who have strong will around their own view of things, but if you stick to your own higher values and take advantage of Venus’ sweet power things will turn out just fine. The Full Moon is in Taurus on 11/6, an excellent time to celebrate and honor the high values that made you who you are today.
GEMINI May 21 – June 20 Dear Gemini, Ruler Mercury moves forward again as November begins, so you’ll feel clearer and more direct too. Mercury is in fellow air sign Libra adding more clarity especially around relationship issues (particularly with your children if you have them). On 11/8 Mercury re-enters Scorpio and dives back into your work zone. Venus is sweetening the situation here already and Mercury helps deepen your communication skills to get your point across even better. On 11/16 Venus rushes into your relationship zone, so expect some lively activity (or person) to beckon you toward more fun! Meanwhile Nebulous Neptune who has been backing up in your career zone since June turns forward on 11/16. This helps you tune your satellite dish better and get clearer indications about career and other worldly agenda decisions that need to be made.
CANCER June 21 – July 20 Dear Cancer, The Moon sparkles in crystal blue Aquarius as November dawns highlighting your deepest relationship and shared resources space. With huge Jupiter piling up gold in your income zone now, how and to whom you spread around your hard earned cash might be more on your mind than usual. If you feel you are in relationships which are fair and balanced you’ll happily share the wealth, but if not, any demands might rub the wrong way. Adding to this dynamic is Mars who just entered your relationship space for the first time in 2 years. Mars ideally brings motivation and in Capricorn also adds a mature perspective. But at the same time Mars here activates Pluto’s long term commitment to help you create better boundaries even with those you dearly love. Mars and Pluto meet up in the middle of the month so it’s a good idea to get clear about all this before then. Luckily Venus in fellow water sign Scorpio lends you a helping hand. Venus in Scorpio is the queen of tough love, so call upon her to help you come up with creative ways to get your point across.
LEO July 20 – August 22 Dear Leo, Your ruler the Sun glints darkly in Scorpio now, and has just come away from a special meeting with Venus who travels in your home and family zone. Velvet Venus helps reassure you that your loved ones have your back, even more than you may have realized before. The Sun’s next meet-up is with Stern Saturn from 11/16-19. Saturn has been stationed here over 2 years helping lay a more solid foundation in your life from the roots up. The Sun is checking in to make sure all is going according to plan. Meanwhile mighty Jupiter continues to pump golden energy your way, so remember to tap your creative talents as never before and the plan will unfold just perfectly. Mars just entered your work/job space for the first time in 2 years. He’ll be here all month helping you focus on the tasks at hand with plenty of extra discipline. This is the zone of health patterns too, so if you’ve been needing to get a better handle on your health and fitness, a strong one is available now.
VIRGO August 23 – September 22 Dear Virgo, November begins with ruler Mercury in forward motion again so your mental faculties are clearer too. Early in the month Merc flies through airy Libra continuing to give you get a better grip on your finances and how partners help or hinder your income flow. On 11/8 Merc re-enters the dark waters of Scorpio, and it’s time to take a deep dive into your mind. For Virgo, mental capacity is your power and your pain. The power comes from your ability to get to the bottom of problems and solve them like no other. The pain results from over-processing things until there is nothing left but soggy mush. Neg Virgo is the poster child for Analysis = Paralysis. Task master Saturn has been stationed in your mental zone over 2 years demanding you to understand this process – to shore up the positive and restructure your OCD tendencies so they stop pulling you under. Venus in Scorpio is gracing this same zone now, and her soothing ways help you achieve this worthy task more easily. When Mercury joins in (from 11/8 thru 11/27) you have a choice. You can become more conscious of how worry and over analysis provide you nothing but further worry and more pain, or you can finally recognize the power of you mind is there to guide you in positive directions and learn to let go and trust! It’s your choice.
LIBRA September 23 – October 23 Dear Libra, November’s astro theme for you, is “Shake your Money Maker!” Ruler Venus is feeling her power in Scorpio and is conferencing with Lord Saturn who has been stationed in your financial zone for 2 years. Saturn has been helping you restructure your finances, whether it was about getting smart and dealing with your debt, or helping you gain courage to use your hard earned savings for something major. Now Venus arrives with velvet gloves to sooth any concerns that may be lingering. Meanwhile Mental Mercury moves forward again and begins the month in Libra, so your communication skills are sharp and on target. Then Merc also visits your money belt territory (11/8 thru 11/27) putting more emphasis on financial matters. If you take an honest look at your beliefs around money and income, you might realize that early family dynamics play a big role. Motivational Mars is now traveling in your home and family space for the first time in 2 years. His active force stirs up those early life belief structures so you can gain a better understanding, and ideally change forever any patterns that hold you back.
IMAGE NOTE We are so used to thinking of insects as scary and ugly, especially a Scorpion one of Scorpio’s symbols. This photo of a praying mantis taken by my friend Elizabeth Olney offers a different view. This praying mantis with such soulful eyes was on Elizabeth’s porch for days and even came inside her house. She befriended it and thought it was beautiful and so do I. Elizabeth Olney is “Dedicated to The Arts for healing, learning enhancement & heightened awareness of diversity” Find her on Facebook
