The Sun is an invitation to a supportive relationship in which you can be yourself around your significant other. You feel relaxed and loved, with a sense of peace of heart. You’ve struck gold and entered into a new realm. Keep looking if this is not how you feel because it is how things should be. You can’t expect improvement in a long-term union if you do not take effective steps to create it.

Being honest with yourself and potential partner(s) about the details of what you desire will help you get what you want faster, and the end result will be much more satisfying. And above all, enjoy your sexual liberation!

Your Ogham Reading for Monday, November 5, 2018

 

Fearn-Alder

The third letter of the Ogham alphabet is Fearn it means alder-tree. Alder-bark has been used by many cultures to treat various health problems and disorders, everything from insect bites to tuberculosis. Alder is a very water resistant hardwood and is often used in foundations where water is present. The key points to remember with alder are confidence, shielding, guidance, and standing up to ones enemies. Just as water stands no chance against alder, your enemies are at a loss when you have the protection of the alder.

Fortune – Drawing this Ogham is a sign to remain true to yourself and resist all temptation!

 

 

Huathe-Hawthorn

The Celts often believed the hawthorn to be a portal to the Otherworld. The hawthorn is a hardy plant commonly used for hedges and great firewood. It can even be an invasive species at times. The key points to remember with the letter Huathe are obstacles, walls, and obstructions. Its ability to form a natural wall gives the diviner an idea in what this symbol can mean to them and their lives.

Fortune – To overcome obstacles and walls you must make a personal sacrifice, to gain we must lose something of ourselves!

 

 

Ura-Heather

The beauty of heather flowers is one reason it is associated with the Irish Goddess of love, fertility, and new growth. Be happy when you draw this letter because it denotes love, companionship, and passion. Whether it will be a new love or an old love rekindled, Ura is a powerful symbol and one that may bring great luck in your love life.

Fortune – This Ogham deals in matters of Love. Whether it is new love or rekindling of old love, enjoy the peace and love that comes with Ura!

Earth Sky News for November 5: Waning moon and Venus November 4 to 6

On the mornings of November 4, 5 and 6, 2018 – perhaps after staying out late or getting up early to look for Taurid meteors – let the waning crescent moon help guide your eye to the planet Venus at morning dawn.

Venus is the brightest planet, so you can see it very near the sunrise glare. It only entered the morning sky – passing between us and the sun – on October 26, 2018. So in early November, Venus is still extremely low in the eastern sky just before sunrise. It’s very near the sunrise point. We in the Northern Hemisphere have an advantage in viewing Venus before dawn at this time of year. It’s autumn for us, and the autumn angle of the ecliptic – or path of the sun, moon and planets – with respect to the morning horizon is always very steep. This means Venus will be above the sunrise, rather than to one side of it, as seen from this hemisphere. And that fact will make Venus easier to spot.

Find an unobstructed eastern horizon, and, if you have binoculars, bring them along. Venus will be higher up and easier to view in the morning sky as the month progresses. Each day throughout November 2018, this blazing beauty of a planet will rise sooner before sunrise and will brighten all the while.

Although Venus will be a fixture of the morning sky until mid-August 2019, it’ll shine at its brightest in late November and early December 2018, as the morning “star.”

At mid-northern latitudes, Venus rises roughly one hour before sunrise by around November 4. By the month’s end, Venus will rise some three hours before the sun.

At temperate latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere, Venus rises about one hour before sunup on or near November 6. By late November, Venus will rise two hours before the sun.

Bottom line: Venus has only now returned to the east before dawn. It’s very low in the sky as dawn breaks. You just might be lucky enough to catch the moon and Venus before daybreak on the mornings of November 4-6, 2018.

Read Your Zodiac Sign’s Tarotscope: Week of November 5

Read what’s in the cards for your sign this week!

Welcome to the week of November 5! Each week a card will be pulled for your zodiac sign, offering the guidance and insight needed to maximize your opportunities and avoid any obstacles headed your way. Reveal the message the Tarot has for YOU now!

Aries Tarotscope (March 21 – April 19)

Your card for the week: Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups indicates emotional maturity, compassion, and a nurturing spirit. This week you are being called to express this energy in some way. Perhaps a friend approaches you with relationship troubles, or it could be that a colleague is coming to you for support with a problem they’re facing. When this happens, listen from the heart as they speak but remain emotionally separated from the issue. While it may be tempting to dive head-first into the situation with them, understand that only they can work themselves out of their predicament.

 

Taurus Tarotscope (April 20 – May 20)

Your card for the week: Knight of Pentacles

Have you had your head in the clouds recently? The Knight of Pentacles is urging you to come back down to Earth this week and apply effort to your ideas this week. Maybe you’ve been suffering from a case of “all talk and no action.” Alternately, you could be putting off your day-to-day responsibilities in favor of more exciting offers. No matter what your situation, you’re being encouraged to create a plan of action or stick to a routine as progress is best achieved through discipline.

 

Gemini Tarotscope (May 21 – June 20)

Your card for the week: 6 of Wands

Victory is yours this week! The 6 of Wands is a card of resolution and honor. It’s indicating that not only have you worked hard and achieved your goals, but you’re starting to gain recognition because of them. Have you gotten praise from higher ups at your company for your efforts on a project? Have you put a new health regime into place and others are taking notice? Soak it in. You may be inclined to brush off this kind of recognition, but now is not the time to bashful. It’s OK to be acknowledged for your achievements, so bask in this moment.

 

Cancer Tarotscope (June 21 – July 22)

Your card for the week: Ace of Pentacles

The Ace of Pentacles is signaling that an abundance of new opportunities in your material world are emerging for you this week. Have you been feeling stalled in you career? Has an investment not paid off the way you thought it would? Have you been unable to make money from an idea you had? That could all change now! Keep your eyes and ears peeled as a new beginning in any of these areas could be just around the corner. Whether you decide to take advantage of them is up to you, but they will be there for the taking.

 

Leo Tarotscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your card for the week: 10 of Swords

The 10 of Swords acknowledges you are going through a painful time right now. Perhaps you’ve been betrayed, or it could be you’re experiencing a period of things crashing down on you. These types of experiences are never pleasant to go through, but this week you’re being called to focus on the new beginning that this ending can make way for. Even though you may feel like you’ve hit rock bottom, take solace in the fact that there’s nowhere else to go but up. Remember, obstacles can be opportunities in disguise.

 

Virgo Tarotscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Your card for the week: 6 of Cups

The 6 of Cups is about the past impacting the present. This week, you’re being called to examine whether or not you’re tethered to your past in some way. While it’s true we sometimes need to look in the rearview mirror as a way of informing current or future decisions, we can easily become stuck living in the past if we’re not careful. Don’t let nostalgia or distorted memories prevent you from making progress and appreciating what’s happening in the here and now. Allow your past to be a source of improvement rather than a source of stagnation.

 

Libra Tarotscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Your card for the week: The Lovers

You could be facing a major decision this week! This situation may be presenting a moral dilemma for you, and The Lovers card represents needing to becoming clearer on what your values and beliefs are before determining how to proceed. Do you feel compelled to go a certain direction based on fears or feelings of guilt? Don’t let those things become motivating factors. Instead, try to understand that every action has a reaction and decisions such as these are never easy. Stay true to yourself — you can’t go wrong.

 

Scorpio Tarotscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Your card for the week: Knight of Wands

The Knight of Wands is an impulsive card, indicating feelings of restlessness that can lead to turbulence in your life. This week, you’re being asked to look at a decision you’re facing and consider the consequences of acting in haste. You may have been ready to choose which path to take, but perhaps you should take a second look before you leap. This isn’t an easy thing to do when you’re excited about something, but this card serves as a reminder that a well-laid plan makes for long-term success.

 

Sagittarius Tarotscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Your card for the week: The Chariot

The Chariot is a card that encourages willpower, action, and self-control. This week, you’re being asked to step into your power and bravely take the reins as you propel yourself toward a goal you have. This is no time to passively wait for good things to happen to you. This card knows that anything worth having requires hard work and discipline. By strapping on your emotional and mental armor, you allow yourself to charge into your future, undeterred by whatever obstacles pop up along the way.

 

Capricorn Tarotscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Your card for the week: 2 of Cups

The 2 of Cups recognizes that partnership is going to be center stage for you this week. This could be someone you’re romantically linked to, or this could be a professional ally. Even though the relationship you have with this person is still in the early stages, it has the potential to grow into something that will benefit the both of you long-term. Spend time cultivating this partnership, while also rejoicing in the fact that your combined forces and mutual admiration will take you both far.

 

Aquarius Tarotscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Your card for the week: Queen of Swords

Get ready to sit high upon your throne this week! The Queen of Swords is incredibly perceptive, embodying an intellectual sharpness and maturity that helps her tune out the noise of emotion and outside opinion. You could be facing a decision now or in the near future, and this card is serving as a reminder to rely on your logic and to look at all the facts before proceeding. You have an abundance of experience and wisdom that you can draw upon, so make sure to utilize it.

 

Pisces Tarotscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Your card for the week: Temperance

Temperance is a card of balance and moderation. Receiving this card signifies a need to keep a more go-with-the-flow attitude, practicing patience and adaptability as best you can. Perhaps you’ve been resisting a change in your life or letting a stressful situation get the best of you. If this is the case, change your approach this week. Allow things to slide off your back instead of meeting them with resistance. By finding your inner balance, you set yourself up to find your outer balance once again.

Tarot Card of the Day for November 5 is Ten of Fire

Ten of Fire

November 5, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

The Ten of this suit represents an all-out effort, an obsessive commitment to a task which demands everything you’ve got. The person shown in decks with pictures is in no position to rest until he makes it inside the stout walls of the well-defended castle in the distance. If he fails, he will become prey for the highway robbers after dark.

It doesn’t matter that he’s overloaded and underfed. With this card, you have to do whatever it takes to get to completion — nothing can be allowed to interfere.

Your Zodiac Sign’s Biggest Stress Triggers

Find out your zodiac sign’s areas of anxiety


With the rapid pace of modern life, stress is a given. Unless you’ve reached nirvana and left the cares of the world behind, you’re bound to get tense from time to time. Some things are universal stressors: ill health, financial problems, and traffic jams when you’re already late. However, what bothers a Gemini (everyone else is so slow!) is quite different from what gets to a Virgo who’s trying to fix everything, or a Cancer who’s struggling to feel safe. What stresses you out the most, and what can you do about it?

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You count on your dynamic Ram energy to get you through the day, and feel vulnerable when it runs out. Especially when you’re down or ill, you feel overwhelmed and stress about all the tasks you can’t accomplish. You’re used to playing Superman or Superwoman, and forget to take time off and be a lazy slug. Be religious about setting aside at least one full day a week to play or do nothing. Life will continue without you!

 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

More than anything else, Taurus, you want to be seen as competent. That’s why you take your time to do things right. When a difficult task looms, you fear you won’t have enough time to do it properly and might mess it up. As a peacemaker, you also stress when you’ve hurt someone’s feelings or can’t resolve a dispute. Fall back on your infallible instincts and trust that your true worth and honesty will ultimately prevail.

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You don’t suffer fools, Gemini. When the car in front of you pulls a bone-headed move in traffic, your stress-o-meter hits the roof. And, little things get to you — like words being mispronounced or misspelled. You’re apt to blow a gasket dealing with slow or stubborn people, where you feel like you’re talking to a wall. You need regular activities that calm your overactive mind, like yoga or throwing pots in a ceramics class.

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Feeling unsafe is a sure ticket to stress for you. The Crab puts up a front that makes you seem tougher than you really are, so others don’t realize how deeply you’re affected by criticism, angry outbursts or being ignored. You often swallow your feelings — it’s vital to let people know what you need instead of retreating into your shell and nursing a stress-related ulcer. Breathe into your belly: your true security lies there.

 

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Any situation where you’re not in control and don’t know what to do is your stress trigger, Leo. A computer breakdown can send you from zero to freak-out in no time flat. Not being able to find something you’ve lost could also fry your circuits. Even falling in love can fill you with raging hormones and vulnerabilities that turn your kingly or queenly self into an insecure child. Let go and accept what is: you’ll be much happier.

 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You think too much, Virgo — which accounts for your greatest stress. Just the thought of attempting something new and unfamiliar can tie you in knots, but once you’re actually doing it, you’re fine. Making lists will help. You also stress when someone you love is struggling or in pain. Rather than trying to fix things for others, utilize your powerful visualization skills to imagine a positive outcome — then trust that all is well.

 

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Not being treated fairly is very stressful for you, Libra. You’ll spend hours weighing the pros and cons of confronting someone — so much so, you can even make yourself sick! Rather than seething in silence or overreacting defensively, respond calmly in the moment. Keep it short and sweet and curb the long-winded speeches or accusations. You’ll get better results once people know where you stand. An uncluttered environment will also keep you serene.

 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Others don’t realize how sensitive you are, Scorpio, because you hide it well. Yours is a quiet strength — so loud yelling and noise in general can quickly stress you out. You also feel tense and nervous when you don’t get enough privacy. Deadlines are another source of stress for you: you’d rather take your time than rush to finish things. Be sure people know your needs and boundaries so you can negotiate what works for all.

 

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You’re all about movement, Sagittarius, so sitting in traffic is your own personal hell. You’re also not big on formal events or business meetings where you have to act properly and “behave” according to corporate culture. Any situation that reins you in, like a partner pressuring you for a commitment or a boss demanding you punch in at a time clock, can trigger stress. Make sure you get enough time outdoors to feed your restless spirit so you won’t feel so constrained.

 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You demand a lot from yourself, Capricorn. And, you feel pressured when you fail to live up to your high expectations. You can end up going over the “what ifs” or “if onlys” of life ’til you’re all lathered up, asking questions that can’t be answered or longing for what you can’t have. The remedy is to live in the moment, the only place where joy can be found. And, be sure there’s plenty of time to relax in your hectic day.

 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Though “live and let live” is your motto, Aquarius, you really like to have your way. You get frustrated when you can’t justify doing what you want without a good reason. Nor can you abide people who try to bend your will to theirs. Already high-strung, you become stressed by the pressures of time, and often feel there’s not enough of it. Yet ironically, by slowing down you’ll actually get more done and feel more relaxed.

 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You’re a very private person, Pisces, so public speaking or other situations in which you feel exposed can be stressful. Subtlety is your strong suit; you feel unnerved by loud music and crass people. And, you get nervous or even sick because you don’t know how to shield yourself from invasions. Adopt the attitude “This too shall pass,” and be sure you’re getting plenty of time alone to process your emotions and clear your slate.

Get a Jump On Tomorrow, Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, Nov. 6th

Free daily horoscope for each star sign from renowned Astrologer Kelli Fox. Forecasts for the week ahead in life, love and career.

Aries

March 21- April 19

High energy continues coursing through your veins today, making for some very interesting — and sometimes tricky — situations. It’s a great time for some one-on-one intensity with your sweetheart or a vigorous workout at the gym. But conversations and teamwork can be iffy for you now. If you feel yourself getting all worked up over something, take a deep breath, count to ten and remind yourself to play nice.

Taurus

Battles of wills are possible today, because you’re feeling a strange cocktail of intense emotions, including jealousy, stubbornness and possessiveness — a potent combination. You may not realise it, but you’re behaving in a controlling way, and that’s setting off the people around you. Make an effort to cooperate instead of bossing other people around, Taurus. It’s time to focus on the good things in life, which normally comes naturally to you.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

A thinker by nature, you tend to intellectualise your feelings, especially if they’re particularly strong or strange. But sometimes, it’s best to let your true feelings wash through you, even if they don’t make any sense at all. This is one of those days, Gemini. Feel your feelings deeply. Don’t judge them — and definitely don’t act on them, because they could change in a flash. Just sit with them until they pass though.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

If you’re involved in a relationship of any sort, today could present some beautiful and intense moments for you and your partner — or you could find yourselves locked in a battle that’s both overwhelming and confusing. Obviously, you should strive for the former! Focus on what you love and respect about each other. If you’re on your own, turn that sense of love and trust toward yourself. Create positive energy by honouring yourself, Cancer.

Leo

July 23-August 22

It’s good to look deeply within yourself and increase your self-awareness, but don’t be hard on yourself during that vulnerable process. Old, irrational insecurities could bubble to the surface today, and if you aren’t prepared for them, you could spend the day in a serious funk. Be proactive about this. Talk your issues over with a trusted friend or therapist. See if you can find the light at the end of the tunnel.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

It’s a good day to analyse your emotions, or to help a friend understand theirs. Look deeply into things that interest you now, and notice the nuance in human relationships. You may discover that you’re feeling things you didn’t expect, or that you’re experiencing certain insecurities. If so, take a compassionate view of them. Treat yourself as you would a good friend who came to you for advice and support.

Libra

September 23-October 22

You’re ardently passionate about someone or something today. These feelings could easily become obsessive, which may or may not be a bad thing. If you’re immersing yourself in a creative work or a healthy relationship, then have fun with the intensity of feeling. But if you’re feeling drawn toward someone who isn’t appropriate for you, remind yourself that feelings change quickly. Try not to do anything you’ll regret later.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

Suddenly, you’re thrust into the role of therapist or confidant for all your friends. Even perfect strangers may seem drawn to your obvious intelligence and keen eye for the motivations behind people’s behaviour. And the truth is, you like filling this role. There’s little that you find more interesting than human nature. And helping your friends through rough spots in their lives is one of the best, most positive uses of your personal talents.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

Everyone around you seems moody and dramatic today. Most people are feeling a little stressed out in general, even if nothing particularly bad is happening. Your best bet is to laugh off any sticky situations that arise, and tap into the passionate side of this energy. This can be romantic or creative passion, or even passion for a book you’re reading or a course you’re taking. It’s up to you!

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

Other people’s emotional displays seem especially dramatic today. They’re behaving irrationally, and you can see right through their tactics, such as tantrums, the cold shoulder, jealousy, martyrdom and more. But try not to be too judgmental of their behaviour. Withdrawing emotionally isn’t a good idea now, either. It’s okay to get worked up about things sometimes, you know. Processing your feelings helps you move past them. Maybe this is necessary now.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

You might have the cool-as-a-cucumber act down pat, but your closest friends know how passionate you are when it comes to your interests and your intimate relationships. Indulge in that passion today. Pursue a subject as far as you can take it, or lose yourself in a deep metaphysical conversation that challenges the way you normally view the world’s possibilities. Turn secrets into moments of delicious discovery.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

Yesterday’s intense emotions continue today. These could range from longing to melancholy to passion and beyond. But whatever you’re feeling, it’s impossibly sweet, because this is you in your most intense and distilled form: a creature of pure emotion. Just remember that feelings are subjective. In a day or two, or even an hour or two, yours are likely to change. Enjoy this ride, but don’t take it too seriously.

Monday’s Birthday Horoscopes, Born on the 5th of November

Happy Birthday ...
Born with a healthy portion of self-esteem, you have no problem going after what you want in the world — and getting it!

If you were born on November 5, you could get away with murder! The manner in which you carry yourself is alluring and magnetic to anyone who encounters you, and by the time they hear your thoughts and opinions, they’re a goner! You’ve got ’em. Your brain and your confidence make for one powerful combination. Whether you flaunt your irresistible demeanor or not, be aware that you must be more socially conscience than others. Make sure you use your weapon ethically and for good, not evil.

At your best: Bewitching, intelligent, mysterious
At your worst: Isolated, unaware, threatening

More About Scorpio

Uh oh … did we let the cat out of the bag? Scorpio, we know that you treasure your privacy and enjoy being mysterious, but really — can you at least reveal that it’s your birthday? You’ve got so many incredible qualities to celebrate and the people who love you truly want to honor you on this special day.

The Calm Before The Storm

Let’s take, for example, your incredible sense of calm and razor sharp ability to take care of those crisis-filled moments without even breaking a sweat. No other sign is as good in a traumatic situation as you are. In fact, the other, more easily frazzled souls out there tend to count on you to get them through life’s most tricky terrain. You’ve also got a penetrating ability to see right into the heart of anyone and instantly understand what makes them tick. A natural born psychologist, people may lean on you for emotional support — especially in times of catastrophe. If there’s anything you’re not, it’s superficial.

These qualities might, however, get in the way of anyone who tries to plan your surprise birthday bash. Why? Because you’re more likely than others to intuitively pick up on the unspoken vibes around you. In fact, you are known as one of the most psychic signs of the zodiac! Since few people have an ability to pull the wool over your eyes, Scorpio, you may have a tendency towards suspicion. Remember that an offensive approach to relationships will only lead to you attracting control and manipulation your way. When you go deep and surrender to trusting others … well that’s when your most amazing, healing energy shines.

Your Daily Horoscope for Monday, November 5

Free daily horoscope for each star sign from renowned Astrologer Kelli Fox. Forecasts for the week ahead in life, love and career.

 

Aries

March 21- April 19

It may be challenging to strike a compromise today, but that’s just the spirit you should go for. You prefer to be the leader, but sometimes it’s better to demonstrate that you’re one of the team. You might have to ‘fake it till you make it.’ But you can do it! Smile, nod and cooperate. This reduces tension for everyone, and makes them more open to following your lead in the future.

Taurus

If you try to pin someone down, they could become evasive. No one wants to rock the boat today — not even you. Which means lots of folks won’t give their true opinions. When you’re in mixed company, it’s best to avoid touchy subjects such as politics or spirituality. No one wants to sense tension in the group! Spend time with close friends now. It’s a relief when you can be yourself.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

People seem especially interesting today. Or maybe it’s just that your mind is more alive now than usual. Either way, conversations flow like a fast-moving river, and laughter soon follows. Your own words and thoughts are articulate and well-formed. It’s easy to slip into a kind of performance mode as you command a rapt audience. Enjoy this brief, invigorating influence! It’s a lot of fun to be so intellectually attuned.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

If a certain relationship or business partnership feels strained today, you may have to set aside your feelings in order to work through the issue. That could be tough for you to do, especially if your feelings are hurt. But being able to focus on what’s most important — working harmoniously together — shows an impressive level of maturity. And you’d much rather work together than have to strike out on your own.

Leo

July 23-August 22

At a party or on a date today, you’re the centre of the crowd. People find your ideas incredibly interesting. Or maybe you just deliver them in such a vibrant, engaging way! Business meetings go well, too. You’re thinking on your feet, with a high level of creativity. It’s a great day for doing imaginative work or bringing a team together. You can motivate people to unite under a common banner.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

Do your best to accommodate others’ needs and wishes today. Of course, you always do. You naturally take other people’s feelings into account, and you always help out when you can. That’s the perfect attitude for the current lunar energy. Cooperative action takes you where you want to go. And there are side benefits to being helpful, too. For one thing, people are more likely to support you when you need it!

Libra

September 23-October 22

You’re highly impressionable today. Each person you talk to is able to sway your point of view, simply by presenting theirs. Well, it’s not your fault that you relate to so many different perspectives! But it might be best to avoid decisive action today. Wait until your own position is clearer. There’s no reason you should have to make up your mind if you aren’t ready yet. Keep clarifying, Libra.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

Welcome to a pleasant, peaceful day. Time spent with friends or family should be harmonious. Intense emotional displays are no fun for anyone now, so avoid them if you can. That might mean making a special effort to choose your battles, including choosing to ignore minor irritations. Of course, you’ll have to talk out any bigger issues that come up. Do so with a level head and an eye for fairness.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

It’s a great day for brainstorming and networking. This is the true power of a group of people: Creative ideas start to flow, producing a wonderfully proactive energy. Soon, a project takes on a life of its own, and all you have to do is ride the wave. Be an inspiration to others in this first phase of generating ideas. Communicate your broad view. No idea is too great or too small.

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

You’re used to making decisions, even the tough ones that no one wants to make. But there are many different viewpoints to consider today. This makes it a lot harder to put your foot down without second-guessing yourself. If you have to decide soon, try to do what you know is right. Otherwise, keep an open dialogue with other people. See if you can find a way to accommodate everyone’s wishes.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

Spending time alone doesn’t hold nearly as much appeal today as connecting with other people. Accept any invitations you receive, or host your own impromptu gathering. Conversation is stimulating and laughter flows easily now. It’s a great day for a little romance, too! Spending time with a friend or someone special just feels right. It promotes a sense of togetherness, an awareness that we’re all in this together.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

Build free time into your schedule today. You’re in the mood to gather with friends and loved ones. In fact, it’s tough to be alone! If you’re stuck solo at home or the office, a lonely mood could settle in. In that case, dispel the gloom by calling a friend or IM-ing a coworker. In this day and age, there’s no need to be alone if you don’t want to!

Your Monthly horoscope for November 2018.

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

There is a more relaxed feel to your chart which is making it hard for others to find the confidence to trust in your work ethic for November. You and I both know that you are more than capable of achieving what’s ahead though, so try to work on convincing those who are in charge, or you could end up with lost time and financial pressure. Everyone knows you are a sign who is not afraid of hard work. You just can’t put your time and energy into anything which you don’t have a passion for. Relationships reach decision time.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Try not to put people on a pedestal again this month please Taurus. You saw what damage it did in both June and July and you should have learnt your lesson by now. Don’t forget what sign you are and how you are the one who is meant to be in charge. You are just naturally very good at letting your close ones think they are. House moves and changes to your abode in general all make for a very exciting month of November where you no longer think about limitations, only possibilities. You’re back!

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

There are many matters in the home which need sorting out before you are able to enter December with any sort of confidence. Try to be the best version of yourself in the weeks ahead though and not a second-rate version of someone else. Making the extra effort to push your career and to find out how you get to the next level with those you’ve been so far mainly playing games with, can pay off to your advantage. This would also be a really good month to begin a healthier regime for yourself. You’re likely to stick at what you start.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Don’t let the shaky start which Mars gives to you this month stop you from achieving all you’d planned. You would not start something you did not think you could finish, so don’t let weaker faces convince you otherwise. Time spent convincing close ones that the path you are on is the best one for both of you, is time well spent. This is also the perfect month to begin study and to work hard at taking your career and earning potential up to the next level. Something or someone you no longer want to be a part of your life, can be successfully pushed out of your life around the 17th.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

I know you are growing tired of a situation in your life which appears to be all about someone taking but not giving. Your schedule will not be able to stay the way it is and this is because you are putting the brakes on all areas of your life in order to draw attention to the seriousness of the situation. News of babies and pregnancies makes you realise how quickly certain faces in your life are growing up. Dates accepted by those of you that are single may make you nervous, but are definitely not worth giving up on. In fact, the opposite.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

Never give up on what you really want to do Virgo. The truth is, you can achieve what you want ten times over with the determination you are able to conjure up. What you are really missing out on, is some time with those you think know you the best. Don’t wait for them to call, but instead get in touch with them. I know that they will have missed you as much as you have missed them, but you are not always the easiest of signs to approach due to the protective front you all too often put up.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Wow, what an amazing confidence boost you are about to be given. I see how docile your chart has been over the last eight weeks and I also see how much you are coming to life now that you are being given the independence your chart has been crying out for this year. As you approach the end of this year, you start to see with ease and clarity, who has been helpful in your life and who has been trying to trip you at every turn. Slow your pace and don’t make promises you don’t have your whole heart in.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Are you saying what you really feel, or what close ones want to hear? I’m not entirely sure, but what I do know Scorpio, is that this month you are sometimes talking for the sake of it. Children are of special significance and you start to realise that you are playing more of a key role in younger faces lives than you first realised. Taking time out to relax with friends after the 9th can see you discovering information which really can bring you closer to those you drifted apart from at the beginning of the year.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Although you have a bumpy start to November due to the emotions your stars are bringing out in you, the new moon on the 7th soon gets you back on track and helps you realise what is important and what and who needs to be pushed to the side. The chance to do some really alternative things with your time should not be turned down. You’ll be missing out on the chance to make some really lasting memories if you do Sagittarius. There is a really romantic feel to your chart after the 21st, when I’m sure you’ll be leaving very little to the imagination.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

You think it is the right time to work hard at your relationships, but you’re wrong. What you actually need is to give them more time and effort and slow your pace to truly enjoy them. What point is the hard work you put into life to get to where you are, if you don’t stop and enjoy the view. Remember what I said to you before Capricorn, ‘the man at the top of the mountain didn’t just fall there!’ Taking your time in all business deals and demanding to see all the facts for yourself can save you from being short-changed.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Your home life comes to the fore and you begin to see with ease what needs to be done to get rid of those negative influences who only seem to want to drag you down. You’re so much stronger than you were and this is shown in the way you choose to let others treat you, or rather in how you refuse to let them drag you down. Be nice to those you work with, even if they are rude to you. It’s time to show why you were born to be a leader and to get on in your career. Wear blue for luck in those important family decisions.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

I know you are looking for excitement and I also know that you will be thinking of doing things which could end up being your down fall. Think before you act, or you could end up having to pay for your actions for months and not just weeks to come. A cheeky mood which Mars places over you from the 18th onwards can help not hinder your life, as it helps you to turn a no into a yes. Jupiter and Saturn join forces to help you replenish those missing funds, but remember to keep paying off what you owe, instead of ignoring what your original game-plan was. Ring now for your future to be revealed.

Dark Stars Horoscope for November 2018

Dark Stars Horoscope for November 2018

by Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES
Others surprise and – hopefully – delight you this November – either in love, or at work. You’ll be in the mood for spontaneous fun and new friends too. Being an assertive Aries you’re likely to say “bring it on!”. But do listen to suggestions from close friends or lovers –  because sometimes things are more exciting if you let go a little and make room for the unexpected. And if there are serious discussions afoot about your career direction, cash, or future plans, then you’ll welcome distractions. Mars enters the mysterious waters of Pisces on 15th November, bringing a huge change of atmosphere for you. You’ve had a long phase highlighting socialising, hanging out with groups, and using social media since Mars entered Aquarius in May 2018. Now, focus shifts. You might want to explore different aspects of your spirituality and creativity, or work towards helping others and putting something back. Lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius (from 8th November) encourages you to explore, study, and travel in 2019. So why not loosen your grip, and see what your imagination can do?

TAURUS
Creating beguiling rituals in everyday life will help you deal with November’s shifts and changes. Your wellbeing is in focus, and your intuition is more than capable of guiding you towards what you need. You might read an article, hear something from a friend, or spot a class you’d enjoy – just set preconceived notions aside, and consider unusual possibilities or alternative treatments. The same attitude will help you with your relationships. You may be keen to make a fresh start in love or friendship, and the mysterious, emotional New Moon on 7th November is making that very clear to you. But pace yourself. Venus turns forward on 16th November, yet it may not be until early December, when she returns to Scorpio, that you’re clear about certain romantic or creative questions. A more fulfilling social life (with romantic potential for some) is about to blossom, so you’re unlikely to be bored. Just keep a very close eye on your finances, especially online, and delay any big changes, investments or outlays until December – or even the new year.

GEMINI
Keep an eye out for those wise-cracking Sagittarians this month. They’re all set to inspire, bamboozle, or amuse you. They may appear in the form of a new romantic interest, or crop up amongst friends and family. Early November offers beauty and romance anyway – even if you’re watching that exquisite sunset or soppy movie on your own, your sensitivity is heightened.  Expect any social plans or travel arrangements to alter at short notice though, for Mercury – your ruler – will be backtracking in Sagittarius from 17th November to 6th December. Your dreams and ambitions may wobble, or you’ll discover that what you’d hoped for isn’t turning out quite as you’d expected. Such thoughts come to a head at the lively Gemini full Moon on 23rd November – an opportunity to clear the decks, rewrite your ‘To Do’ list or organise your symbolic sock drawer. You’re just beginning an important year for all your alliances, with Jupiter in Sagittarius galloping through your house of partnerships. Luck flows through your links with others, but be extra cautious around shared financial commitments. Those could get a bit messy……

CANCER
There’s a lot written about your nurturing, protective side Cancer. But you’re also ambitious, dynamic, and capable of hanging in there when others are bailing out. However, your astrology suggests that 2018 hasn’t been such an easy ride, for you’ve been dealing with awkward individuals and tricky financial situations. Now you sense change – for the Moon’s nodes in Cancer (6th), plus Mars in fishy Pisces from 15th November, support your own sea-water nature. It’s time to think about widening your focus, or revisiting old projects, skills and talents you’ve had to put on ice in recent years. You’ll feel the tug of the ocean, or the thrill of a deeper love around the time of that bewitching new Moon on 7th November. Yes, people – particularly women – continue to spring surprises, but you’re less interested in attention-seeking individuals and more concerned with future plans and fresh directions. Looking after your wellbeing channels positive forces your way now, and during 2019. Why not make a start?

LEO
November’s smoky new Moon in Scorpio highlights your home and family, while stirring up dreams about your links with others. Who supports you? Who understands you? You may feel more reflective than usual, or need to explore what’s hidden – either in your family history, or your own imagination. Some enlightening conversations or connections will help you find your way towards the answers you seek. Jupiter enters fiery Sagittarius on 8th November, warming up your solar house of romance, children, creativity and risk-taking for a whole year ahead. Many of you will feel more outgoing, as Jupiter invites you to scan those glittering far horizons. You might want to travel, sign up for a course, or think about making big changes to your working life in 2019. See what emerges around the 27th November, and also in the days around the Winter Solstice in December. What you hear then could lift your heart, and make you feel more than lucky.

VIRGO
Promoting yourself or your ideas isn’t usually top of your list. Virgo is known as a modest, even shy, sign. However, with Sun in Scorpio and a mystical new Moon there on 7th November, you should be able to team up with someone who can help you sharpen up your image, or attract a wider audience for your talents. You may want to think about working from home, or consider the idea of moving to another location or country. All exciting possibilities, and thanks to your eye for detail you’re unlikely to rush into anything. Mercury, your ruling planet, will be backtracking from 17th November until 6th December in Sagittarius. Possibilities and offers could stall, or plans come unravelled during this phase. Play a waiting game, and don’t dismiss information or news you hear towards the end of November. Much more information appears in December, when an open-minded look at ongoing situations in your life brings amazing benefits that could turn everything around again.

LIBRA
Love, beauty, music and perhaps a little cash are all lovely possibilities for you to enjoy during the first two weeks of November. Venus is in Libra all month, turning forwards on Friday, 16th November. That mid-November weekend looks like an eventful one for many Librans, as does the very end of the month. Either you’ll experience some kind of ‘eureka’ moment, a wild synchronicity that makes you think, or bump into someone (apparently by chance) who can help you make meaningful changes to your life. Opportunities or possibilities that slipped past you in September could be on offer again too. Communication, writing, and friendship is increasingly important now, and on into 2019. Some of you want to get more involved with neighbourhood projects, others feel the need to spend time with old friends or visit family living far away. The more you talk openly about your hopes and ideas, the more help and enthusiasm you generate all around you. And please do take your emotional wellbeing seriously. Prioritise peace and harmony, its what you do best.

SCORPIO
Is your creativity flowing? Or are you feeling stale or restless? If you crave change, then why not tune into the mystical new Moon in Scorpio on 7th November? It’s dark, deep, and mysterious. Keep an open mind, and you could discover unexpected new directions or points of view. Acting on your hopes and ambitions becomes easier once Mars (your traditional ruler) enters Pisces on 15th November, supporting your own watery astrological nature, your passions, and your imagination until January. You’ll be smouldering and charismatic! Ongoing disagreements with family or workmates can be sorted out more easily as the weeks pass too. Similarly, any tricky situations with money, large institutions, or gossip will gradually become less shadowy. Continue paying close attention to what people say, news you hear, and information you share though, particularly towards the end of November. Clarity and integrity are vital in your love life, financial dealings, and when teaching or getting your message out there.

SAGITTARIUS
Joyful news is the arrival of jolly Jupiter in Sagittarius on 8th November. What you’ve been mulling over this year now emerges from the backrooms of your mind. Jupiter lifts your mood, expanding your view of the world and what you can achieve. Just promise yourself to check things out thoroughly, ask advice, and consider others’ points of view too. Someone new and energetic is around – they are very seductive, so centre yourself before you think about running away with the circus. Mercury backtracks in Sagittarius from 17th November – 6th December, so certain plans or journeys may be delayed or altered. It’s not a helpful time for signing contracts either. Some juicy gossip or fascinating news you hear around the time of that talkative full Moon (23rd) prompts further questions or eccentric choices. A lucky break or good news towards the end of November will be just the start – there’s more to come at the Winter Solstice. There’s no harm in biding your time. Luck is on your side.

CAPRICORN
You’re on the cusp of an important year for your self-expression, and for your partnerships at home and at work. There’ll be changes, for you’re releasing certain things, attitudes, or habitual routines. And keen as you are to move things along, you may have to wait for others to agree terms and conditions – whether that’s in your relationship, your career, or your personal finances. With Venus and Mercury doing a bit of a soft-shoe shuffle this month, it’s wise to hold off on pushing for contracts or an emotional commitment. Changes at home, or within your family, bring all manner of curious possibilities or sudden swerves – particularly towards the end of the month. Treasures and brilliant ideas are lurking in your imagination, so why not listen to your intuition a little more and see where it leads? Jupiter in Sagittarius will act like an angel on your shoulder all year, and is encouraging you to make time to explore your more spiritual side in 2019. Travel, study, or meditation could all enrich your world.

AQUARIUS
Brace yourself for a shift in focus, for Mars is finally leaving your sign this November, having been there since May.  Once in Pisces, Mars energises your money house, where your personal values can also be found. What do you value? You’ve forged ahead this year, so are you satisfied with where you are now? A mind-bending Scorpio Moon on 7th November might be a good moment for fresh philosophies or searching out deeper mysteries. You’ll sense a wider world. And if that’s not enough, art and love are all ready to throw some surprises your way towards the end of November. Perhaps you were mistaken about something or someone? Perhaps an old, even karmic, tie is tugging on your heart? Perhaps you want to experiment, explore, or defy conventional norms in some way? Enjoy messing around in your alchemical laboratory, for you need some changes, and will be seeking new directions and radical plans in 2019. Playing with possibilities now is a creative and wise thing to do. Don’t try to nail anything down just yet.

PISCES
The fabulous fishes of Pisces are leaping up out of the silvery sea as the mystical new Moon (7th) inspires your November imagination. If you feel unappreciated, or as if you’re always working behind the scenes, it’s time to take a deep breath and step forward. Mars is, finally, in Pisces from 15th November to 1st January, boosting your energy and confidence throughout the holiday season. And generous Jupiter, your traditional ruling planet, will liven up your goals, wishes, and life direction from Sagittarius for a whole year, from 8th November. Yes, Mercury is backtracking this month, but don’t stress if certain offers or exciting possibilities seem to fade away or go wrong. Either they just weren’t right for you, or you can look forward to further developments between now and February. Be good to yourself this month, for December brings intriguing news and adventurous ideas for you to explore in 2019.

Cosmic Weather Horoscope for November 2018

 

Cosmic Weather Horoscope for November 2018

by Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

Planets circle and shape-shift in November’s astrology –  bringing change, new perspectives, and a sprinkling of magic inside, and outside ourselves. A lively month awaits us.

So – celestial hotspot number one occurs between 6th November – 8th November.

As the month begins, on 6th November, electric Uranus returns to Aries for the final time. Our ideas about personal identity are writ large – from politics to self-expression, selfies to selfish behaviour. There are individual questions in our own lives of course, and there are huge questions that concern us all about changes we’ve already seen since 2011.

On the very same day, the Moon’s Nodes move into protective Cancer, the Crab. It’s another astrological hint that we’re questioning the past, and mulling over things from 2009 –2011, or even as far back as 2000 – 2001. There’ll be some surprising connections and alliances made this month as the Nodes connect with the unexpected eccentricity of Uranus.

November’s new Moon rises in Scorpio on the 7th, bringing powerful spiritual themes. And then, two days later, generous Jupiter comes home to Sagittarius on 8th November.

Jupiter’s expansive effect will be powerful here – travel, education, justice, sport, religion and spirituality are in strong focus. Jupiter was last in Sagittarius from November 2006 – December 2007. In one corner of the cosmos (and in your own horoscope) Jupiter offers us the gift of tremendous optimism – yet we must handle this with great care.

November’s second astrology hotspot moves things around between the 15th November – 17th November.

Love, friends, social life and desires are refreshed, and for some of us a new path opens up. Love potions and elixirs are brewing up in some kitchens. They could have unexpected results.

It begins when Mars, planet of action, enters mystical, musical Pisces on 15th, swiftly followed by loving Venus – now a morning star – finally turning forwards in Libra on 16th, and Mercury reversing on 17th  November.

Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius promises transport chaos, and probably some headline-worthy confusion in schools and universities. Between 11th – 21st November looks especially tangled, with Mercury and Neptune squaring off to warn us of delusions, deceptions, and general gobbledegook.

It should be quite helpful for anyone revising their ideas, editing documents, or re-negotiating an existing deal or agreement. But take extra care. Mercury turns direct on 6th December at 29 Scorpio.

Planetary patterns are changing, ahead of the New Year. It’s a chance to begin afresh, shake off unhelpful habits we’ve fallen into in 2018, or at least think about what we’d like to change.

Enjoy November. And maybe catch a falling star! Autumn’s Taurid meteor shower is said to be peaking between 4th – 12th November.

 

 

Monday 5th November – Friday 9th November:

Sometimes, Love is All You Need…..

Loving Venus is now rising as a ‘morning star’ in her home sign, Libra.

This week, our thoughts about love, relationships, and harmony begin to emerge from the depths. If there was turmoil, or even painful inner revelations about love, sex and money, during the time Venus spent rewinding in Scorpio, that process begins to bring rewards and understanding now.

Venus in airy Libra flows with Mars in cerebral, airy Aquarius this week. Love is, symbolically, in the air. Mythic lovers Venus and Mars reach peak connection on 9th November, at 26 degrees.

It could be a beautiful week to talk with those you love. Why not be brave – express your romantic feelings, or whisper sweet nothings? Some of us may be inspired to think about making bigger commitments, particularly if there’s been a recent break up or interruption in an existing relationship.

This can also be a helpful time to review financial affairs, shared financial commitments, or projects where you’re raising money together as a couple, or in a group.

Venus turns direct on 15th November in Libra, moving towards her electrifying encounter with Uranus towards the end of this month. By then, all bets are off and radical or experimental possibilities pop up out of nowhere.

 

 

Tuesday 6th November:

Point of Change: Moon’s North Nodes enter Cancer, the Crab and Uranus returns to Aries, the Ram

We’re shifting into a time when, collectively, we’re more and more concerned with where we belong. What does ‘home’ mean?

Emotional security and nourishment is top of the list. Love, family (in every sense), home, good food, protection for our environment – all these things will matter more than ever. For many people, they’ll mean much more than ‘wealth’ or ‘success’ – we question what those aspirations might mean. Is that all there is?

The Moon’s nodes will now be travelling through Cancer and Capricorn until May 2020.

The Dragon’s Head, or North Node, is in Cancer. The Dragon’s Tail, or South Node, is in Capricorn. The nodes act like doorways. Universal lessons and themes flow through their portals, and they signal the signs of our eclipses – and therefore areas of vital change and focus for everyone. When an eclipse connects with your natal horoscope it sensitises that area, and what it means, for quite a while.

The North Lunar node is called the Dragon’s Head. Energy flows in at this point, represented by the people we meet, the projects we get involved in, and the opportunities we take up.

The Dragon’s Tail is the South Lunar node. Some say its ‘unlucky’, possibly because this is a place of release, giving back, and paying debts – especially karmic debts, or other obligations. However, this is not always negative – paying things back through acts of kindness, putting someone else first, or completing a difficult project are not negative things. Yet these important acts are represented here at the South Node.

The nodes have been in Leo-Aquarius, since May 2017.  Here they were about the heart and individual (Leo), versus the rational mind and every kind of group and crowd (Aquarius).

Now, with Cancer-Capricorn, they focus on our gut feelings – stomach, emotions and sensitivity (Cancer) versus our structure, bones, and stoicism (Capricorn). The phrase ‘homeland security’ resonates quite precisely with this Cancer-Capricorn journey too. Cancer-Capricorn themes will be stronger now, and in 2019.

So, for instance, the astrology of food says that milk is ruled by the Moon. I’m therefore intrigued to see that ‘Moon Milk’ is becoming more and more popular. It’s just ahead of the Cancerian upcoming trend for lunar themes and soothing drinks that the astrology suggests will be around during this phase. Sometimes themes kick in a little early, and we had our first Cancer-ruled solar eclipse back in July, 2018.

Moon milk is warm milk with turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, and honey.  It’s an ancient Ayurvedic sleep remedy. Or, you know, something rather like the hot milky bedtime drinks everyone used to recommend….Anyway,  people have now added all kinds of extra, esoteric ingredients.

Pastel moon milk drinks look very pretty on social media – expect this trend (and the burgeoning sleep industry in general) to flourish while the Moon’s nodes are in Moon-ruled Cancer.

There’ll also be much more talk about work/life balance, with many questions about long hours, poor pay, or miserable conditions. The roles of mothers and fathers, parental leave, and even what stories our DNA has to tell us are up for discussion and exploration. The signs Cancer and Capricorn both love history, and who knows what tales of human history lurk in our DNA?

And as for that amazing, gurgling core of our beings – the gut – I think we’ll be hearing much more about how vital its teeming microbes are for our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. There could even be some kind of research breakthrough.

We’re questioning the past, and mulling over things from 2009 –2011, or even 2000 – 2001. There’ll be some surprising connections and alliances made this November as the nodes connect with the unexpected eccentricity of Uranus.

These themes are jolted into our conscious awareness when the Moon’s nodes meet Uranus in Aries – now, and on into early December. What does home, sweet home, mean to you? Taking care of yourself and those you love will matter more than usual. And there could be new, unconventional, or unusual ways of achieving that just around the corner.

Diwali Moon: New Moon in Scorpio

Spiritual beauty with a backdrop of deeply intense, even dark feelings – this endlessly watery New Moon in Scorpio is a powerful one for us here on Earth.

There could be more than a whiff of ancient scandals and the appearance of adversaries from the past. We’re thinking about sex, death, and money….what’s superficial or shallow must wait in the wings as we experience something more profound.

This new Moon marks the start of Diwali, the inspiring annual Indian festival of sweetness and lights in the darkness.

Big Fat News: Jupiter Comes Home to Sagittarius, The Archer

Jupiter enters his home sign, Sagittarius, today, 8th November, 2018.

Jupiter’s expansive effect will be powerful here – travel, education, justice, sport, religion and spirituality are in strong focus. Publishing, financial gambling, and journalism are highlighted too.

Jupiter was last in Sagittarius from November 2006 – December 2007. In one corner of the cosmos (and in your own horoscope) Jupiter offers us the gift of tremendous optimism – yet we must handle this with great care.

Often described as lucky or fortunate, Jupiter’s most fundamental astrological role is to expand. So an expansive mood tends to be generous, good-humoured, and optimistic. A positive frame of mind sees opportunities, attracts other people, and seeks pleasure in life, love, and adventure. This is what makes Jupiter ‘lucky’.

Here in Sagittarius, the centaur and archer, Jupiter is extra potent. It acts like a mind-altering shot of high hopes and thinking big. For anyone timid or self-effacing, it’s a fabulous tonic. For those who are already confident, its effects might benefit from a little restraint.

The wide horizons beckon.  Mental, physical, and spiritual travel and exploration are favoured – with every kind of education or effort to learn more bringing excitement and fulfilment. Telling others about your discoveries through writing or creating visual stories is part of Jupiter in Sagittarius’s natural expressiveness. The next year will be a lively one if your work involves teaching, travel, international trade or sport.

Sport is real favourite of Jupiter in Sagittarius, particularly sociable or team sports. International sporting events and massive sport-based scandals could be major news in 2019. If the astrological symbolism is really sharp, these could involve racing, polo, equestrian events and, erm, archery……

More profoundly, this can be a deeply philosophical, even spiritual energy. There’s humour, for sure, but often something more. On the darker side, faith and belief can become fanatical, self-righteous, and blind to reason. Giant, jolly Jupiter does tend to overdo things, so balance and awareness might come in handy.

Jupiter’s effects in your own horoscope will depend on your personal chart. The fire signs – Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, and the air signs – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius – will benefit in the most obvious ways. Yet the feel good factor can be so delightful it’s easy to just coast along. So don’t look this cosmic gift horse in the mouth!

Wherever Jupiter is travelling for you this year, you’ll find that uplifting sense of optimism and freedom. That’s a springboard, and you can use it to make positive changes – particularly if you want to explore, study, or widen your world in some way.

 

 

Friday 23rd November:

Seeing Double: Full Moon in Gemini, the Twins

Tricksters abound. Our Gemini full Moon is nimble, quick-witted, and economical with the truth when it suits. And mostly, smoke and mirrors do suit a backtracking Mercury in Sagittarius, ruler of this full Moon.

This full Moon brings a tug-of-war featuring flamboyant emotions, and inflates everything it illuminates. Take everything you hear in the coming days with a generous pinch of Saturn’s sensible salt.

 

 

28th November:

Best of Luck? Mercury conjunct Jupiter

Are you revising or reworking a project, or maybe just want to get back in touch with someone from the past?

Today looks like a fortunate time to do that. Rewinding Mercury aligns with optimistic Jupiter in Sagittarius today at 4 degrees. Please do steer clear of over optimism, gambling, or wild travel plans. But, otherwise, feel the love.

The next cosmic boost from messenger Mercury and jolly Jupiter will be right on the Winter Solstice, 21st December. This one looks to be quite something. It’s at 10 degrees, aligning with the Watcher of the West, fixed star Antares.

Antares is a very potent, important star. It’s also known as the Heart of the Scorpion. Antares denotes success, but some kind of journey to the underworld and back again is always involved. This could be through an intense experience, or a psychological trip into your personal subconscious. Some kind of underworld beckons.

So watch out for the days around this December event – they’ll more than likely be brimming over with intense news, passion, and major announcements.

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast: November 4– 10, 2018

Sunday, 4 November, 2018  (posted 5 November, 2018)

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE*  There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen.

Weekly Forecast:  November 4 – 10, 2018

11/6 ~ Sun (authentic Self) ~trine~ Neptune (intuition):

This energy triggers your idealistic, altruistic inclinations, but remember that help has to be invited. But if you have the energy to share & to spare, then dedicate your Self to something greater than you. Choose a cause to support or help those less fortunate for the sheer pleasure of giving. If your energy is low at this time, it is better directed inward. If you can, take some extra time in intentional solitude, praying, meditating and connecting to Spirit this week, you will be rewarded with deep revelations & mystical discoveries within you. It’s a great time to do divinations, ritual or ceremony if you’re into that. Your intuition is heightened also, so pay attention to any ‘messages’ that come through or to you. Try to use this energy to reflect on where you are and dream a little about where you want to be, mentally, spiritually and physically in 6-months to a year from now.

11/8 – Jupiter in SCORPIO *trines* North Node in CANCER:

This is super-rare and aligned at the 29* degree mark which is also potent. This alignment supports the Path & Direction that nourishes your Soul.

11/8 – Jupiter Enters SAGITTARIUS:

This year is pivotal for your personal and professional growth & expansion. With the other planets helping strip us of the non-essential and blast out old paradigms, Jupiter points to the area of your life where you need to grow, evolve & broaden your thinking. The areas of your life being activated at this time are undergoing a revolutionary transformation. Always keep in mind Jupiter represents a 12-year cycle – think back to 12 years ago (Nov 2006-Dec 2007): where were you? what were you trying to accomplish? who were you? what were your priorities? what primary belief drove you (back then)? You may find that whatever did not “click” then, may be revisited now and miraculously supported. Or you may have experienced a 12-year cycle that is clearly completed and finished now. Release, rejoice and move forward. Additional revelations at this time will confirm once and for all that what used to be true for you is simply no longer true for who you have become today and conversely, what was not true for you prior to this time in your life, you may find to resonate very deeply now.

Things to do:

  • Take time to evaluate & redefine your own personal Truth & Story (or have it defined for you)
  • You have evolved ~ acknowledge your growth and development thus far and be grateful
  • Prepare for more radical growth and expansion (of your personal and/or your professional life)
  • Go within and connect to your authentic voice (free flow writing/journaling/poetry/art/express yourself in any form)
  • Whatever you are seeking – CREATE IT (health/prosperity/community/spiritual quest/groups/circles)
  • Prepare as if you’re already “there” (at your destination/goal)
  • Prepare for unique opportunities to broaden your thinking (inner)
  • Prepare for unusual opportunities to attract all that you need, desire & deserve (outer)
  • Write down ALL sudden strokes of brilliance (ideas will be plentiful – good timing is another topic)

This powerful Jupiter cycle to assist us all in cultivating tolerance, faith and optimism. This whole year, most of us will seek the deeper meaning behind our choices and the events that shape our lives. Jupiter will help make meaning of the chaos around us and the only way you can truly do that is to identify what you believe (and hold to be true) at your deepest, core level.

11/8 – Uranus in ARIES *squares* North Node in CANCER:

This is super-rare and aligned at the 29* degree mark which is also potent. This alignment supports Self-Mastery & Liberation as you works it out with completely new ways of Contain, Nurture, Protect your life.

11/9 ~ Venus (feminine & receiving) ~trine~ Mars (masculine & giving):

Venus rules your values & priorities where relationships with love & money are concerned, your inner Divine Feminine that innately knows how to co-create with nature, what to cultivate and nurture to full development. Mars rules your desire nature and your inner Divine Masculine, which is responsible for maintaining your personal boundaries, getting your ideas into the world and negotiating on your own behalf. When you are channeling both through you in a balanced way, what you create and how you move through the world becomes a beautiful dance or interesting story. The trine is a blessing of ease & grace, an easy-going energy that paves the way for balance & reciprocity and encourages independence within the context of relationships. Communication is usually smooth at this time and exchanges can be mutually beneficial. Any relationships started under this influence have a good chance at success whether personal or professional.
