The emotive Scorpio Sun is in harmonious alignment with mystical Neptune at the start of November promising exciting encounters, new friendships and/or passionate romance. Winged Mercury, the inspirer of ideas and facilitator of good communication, flies into idealistic Sagittarius activating any latent desires to further understanding of yourself, the world and how best to relate to it. However, Mercury is heading for another retrograde phase on the 17th – a time traditionally associated with miscommunication so be sure to get your important documents signed by then – on the plus side it is a good time for exploring your ideas and getting them down on paper. The big planetary move this month is expansive Jupiter (associated with abundance/accumulation) leaving Scorpio (associated with letting go/breaking down – confusing!!) on the 7th and preparing for a one year stay in its own sign of Sagittarius (i.e the principle of expansion, Jupiter, is well supported by Sagittarius’ optimistic and adventurous nature). This major shift offers great possibilities individually and collectively to bravely explore new frontiers – either literally or metaphorically. The new moon is in Scorpio on the 7th. There’s nothing halfway about this sort of psychological energy – be prepared for some deep sea diving / emotional delving. The lighter, more playful full moon in Gemini on the 23rd is a welcome counter balance
ARIES MARCH 21 – APRIL 20
Both Saturn and Pluto continue to put the emphasis on work and career issues throughout November; but mischievous Mercury, just entering Sagittarius, suggests there’s a lighter mood at play. The arrival of cosmic giant Jupiter on the 8th, aspecting your Sun, brings high optimism and makes you feel that you can move mountains.
TAURUS APRIL 21 – MAY 21
Jupiter and the Sun highlight your closest relationships and inspire big ideas this month. Lover of Beauty, Venus, your ruling planet, remains in retrograde motion until the 16th, giving you the time and space to reflect on what really makes you happy. The new moon on the 7th reminds you not to neglect the small stuff.
GEMINI MAY 22 – JUNE 21
Mercury, the Trickster and your ruling planet, is now in idealistic Sagittarius urging you to focus on the bigger picture, to form a vision of where, what and how to bring the right kind of adventures into your life. Make every effort to get important matters resolved before Mercury goes retrograde around the 17th.
CANCER JUNE 22 – JULY 22
November is an important month as expansive and abundant Jupiter moves into a pivotal position on the 8th, setting the tone for the next twelve months. Work related issues surface as the chance for growth and success become evident. Any concerns around your home and family should ease after the 16th.
LEO JULY 23 – AUGUST 23
Your home and family are in the spotlight this month as some difficult decisions may need your attention; try to get things sorted before Mercury goes retrograde on the 17th. Otherwise abundant Jupiter lends a fortuitous helping hand to your best endeavours.
VIRGO AUGUST 24 – SEPTEMBER 22
Fleet-footed Mercury is active on the home front in November; quick wits may be called for in dealing with some major issues. Make sure you double-check any information that you have received, or intend to send, particularly after the 17th when your ruling planet goes retro.
LIBRA SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 23
Jupiter, planet of benevolence, abundance and growth, moves to a pivotal position on the 8th. This major shift opens doors to new information, business opportunities and social contacts. Anything to do with learning and communication is positive and should be pursued with enthusiasm.
SCORPIO OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 22
This month brings Jupiter’s year long stay in your sign to a close; the end of a 12 year cycle and the beginning of a new one. Hopefully you built the foundation for a magical future. As is often the case at the start of any journey funding the project needs consideration. Mercury offers a helping hand with route planning, accept before the 17th if you can.
SAGITTARIUS NOVEMBER 23 – DECEMBER 21
Hold on to your hat – your ruling planet, larger than life Jupiter, is coming home! November is the start of major shifts in all areas of your life as bountiful Jupiter blows through your cosmic map. Blue sky thinking and major initiatives are sure to open up exciting new horizons.
CAPRICORN DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 20
You may feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders in the first half of November: obstacles, hurdles to jump and frustrations on your path! However, as Venus changes direction on the 16th so do your fortunes. It’s a positive time for making an important mark in your world.
AQUARIUS JANUARY 21 – FEBRUARY 18
Warrior Mars leaves your sign on the 16th, entering the emotionally sensitive and mystical sign of Pisces activating your charitable instincts and desire to fight for the rights of the less well off. Jupiter‘s arrival in Sagittarius brings new friendships into your orbit.
PISCES FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20
November signifies the start of an optimistic and fortuitous phase as bountiful Jupiter takes up the highest point in your cosmic map. Be open to change direction if the changes inspire and align with your heart’s desire. The Scorpio new moon on the 15th puts travel on the agenda.
