November Astro Babble ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. It was epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” A Tale of Two Cities
This month we dive deeper into the energies of Fall, a time where light gives way to dark, our focus shifts inward and we dance the eternal mystery. With Venus joining Jupiter in Scorpio—the sign of death, rebirth and transformation—there is great opportunity to dig in deep to the aspects of your life that you want to transform.
Another element of Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio, is looking at what we “value”. With what’s happening in our world, many of us are considering what’s really important, as we downsize, donate and strive to be debt free. Luxury, once the gold standard of the American Way, has been replaced with grounded necessity. Not sacrifice, but practical, realistic living. Which at the end of the day, feels so much better. And authentic. And real!
November’s Full Moon in Taurus (Nov 3rd) and New Moon in Scorpio (Nov 18th), respectively, provide some much needed grounding, and a vessel to process and integrate your deeper stirrings. Mindfulness and ritual on these lunar power days can prove illuminating and helpful.
Your November Horoscope:
Aries: With an abundance of energy in your 8th House, the realm of Scorpio, of death, rebirth and transformation, this is a time to embrace your dark side. Symbolically “dark” is the deepest parts of your psyche, emotional and spiritual self. You tend towards the Yang—external, driven—but don’t be intimidated by your Yang side—internal, receptive—because it’s in her mystery where your answers lie. #MysteriousMe
Taurus: Your stars remind me of a favorite Rumi poem: “Now is a time to think of roses and pomegranates and the ocean where pearls are made…” This month’s Lunar energies—the Full Moon in your sign, and New Moon in earth-friendly Scorpio—offer a nurturing drink, an elixir from the Goddess. Time to water your plants, yourself, your relationships, anything that has become too dry. #HolyWater
Gemini: On tap this month is lifestyle choices. The mundane day-to-day details of how you live your life. Boring? Au contraire! Your routines, and how you manage them is fertile ground. The more you honor your needs: body, mind and spirit, the more you will feel, well, simply—better. Taking care of yourself is paramount now, so slow down, and be mindful of expending unnecessary energy. #TheDevilsInTheDetails
Cancer: Venus (love), Jupiter (expansion) and the Full Moon (illumination) dancing in your house of creativity is a potent combination. (And doesn’t happen often!) Your muses are calling, and they won’t take “no” for an answer. Creativity can be intimidating, but think about it more as self-expression vs. some grand artistic endeavor. It’s not about getting it right, it’s about the experience. #PermissionToDance
Leo: You’re balancing a lot of balls this month Leo, and there lies the rub… how to take care of yourself, nurture your creativity, and still show up for others, without becoming so overwhelmed that you don’t completely shut down? Whew! First, take a deep breath. Second, don’t get caught up in other people’s drama. Third, remember, you’re in charge, and nothing is going anywhere. Set your own pace! #Trust
Virgo: November is about communication. When you have a lot going on, which you do, and you’re excited about everything, which you are, it’s easy to garble thoughts and ideas, especially when it comes to explaining them to others. Your words are important now, so take time to gather your thoughts before you share them with others. The world is listening to what you have to say. #Wordsmith
Libra: Go into your imagination, your mind’s eye, and visualize your life from a place of success, prosperity and wellbeing. What does it look like? Take a snapshot, and put it on your altar, because with the abundant forces aligning in your chart now, you’ll want to make sure you’re setting the stage to manifest big things. Doubt is not an option. The clearer you are, the more the Universe will meet you. #LikeAttractsLike
Scorpio: You are the Poster Child this month for abundance and great things. Venus and Jupiter and the New Moon all in your sign, bring an expansive and healing vibration. Love is in the air, and although it’s not Paris in Springtime, it’s Springtime in your heart, so celebrate the rebirth of romance in your life. Whether it’s with someone new, someone “old”, or you, it’s time splash in a few puddles. SingingInTheRain
Sagittarius: As I gaze into your stars, I’m having a past-life moment, a memory of you in another time and place, where you were a seeker, someone who dabbled in alchemy, astrology and the mystical arts. You may have a past life remembrance, too, or not; either way, this is a moment to commune with your inner-wisdom seeker, your most mystical self. Your archetype: Merlin, the great Wizard! #BecomingMerlin
Capricorn: If I were to choose a Tarot card for you this month, it would be The Star. Ohhh The Star! Such a bright and inspiring light. A signal from the Universe to take some chances and invest in your dreams and bigger future. This is not, however, a cosmic “get-out-jail-free-card” or permission to pass “Go”--quite yet. It is more a wake-up call to listen to higher self, and start aligning your energies. #StarSeed
Aquarius: With a boost of planetary energy in your House of Career and Identity, the Universe is pushing the little birdy (you) out of the nest (comfort zones), and asking you fly. You’ve totally got this! Take advantage of the energy to strike new ground around your career. Although you are outer-focused now, your sweet spot is home and family. Count on them to ground you in your new endeavors. #CosmicCareerMonth
Pisces: Expect to feel restless this month, with expansive planetary energy in your House of Travel, Higher Education and World/Global Exploration. You’re itching for new discoveries, so the question is: What’s holding you back? Time to look at anything (or anyone) that is standing in your way of expansion. Grab ahold of your desires and go for the Big Full Meal Deal. Nothing less will do. #CarpeDiem
