Tarot Card of the Day

Seven of Wind


The Seven of this suit typically refers to mental preparedness, acquired through the use of imagination, including the rehearsing and visualizing of desired results. This card represents the positive mental habits of a natural winner. The image most often associated with this card is that of a canny warrior who has infiltrated into the enemy camp on the eve of a fateful battle, checking out their preparations and stealing their swords. Such a move is guaranteed to demoralize the enemy and undermine their performance in the upcoming confrontation.

Putting it in modern terms, one who draws this card needs to work smarter, not harder. Think long and deep, study all the angles and put yourself in the shoes of your competition. As a result, you will have such a thorough grasp of the whole situation that there will be no surprises — and no excuses for anything but success. Skillful preparation justifies the optimism of the natural winner.

Weekly Tarot card for December 1-7

Six of Pentacles reversed


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s this card again! We saw the Six of Pentacles last month as well, and it does seem that some of the lessons or struggles present in November are still with us currently. This is not unexpected. November marked the start of a chain of busy holidays; this year a number of stores where I live started merchandising for Christmas even before Halloween, and now are in full-swing with decorations and many additional products. In our spread, we have the Six of Pentacles positioned in reverse, which seems in direct alignment with this month’s theme card. I can’t help thinking about the fine line between holiday spirit and holiday pressure — pressure to find the perfect present for everyone on my list, pressure to get everything done on time… By some people’s standards, I’m already late if I’m still doing my holiday shopping now! And as noted above, if you’re operating on a budget, and many of us are, including everyone you care about and finding just the right thing for each of them can be tough.

When this card is reversed, it often indicates mishandling of resources, so I’m taking its appearance here as a warning. What sort of creative solutions might we find to honor those we love with clever gifts that don’t have to drain our resources? Last month’s appearance of this card asked us to think about different ways we could serve others. Generosity does not have to be financial, even though Pentacles are the suit of tangible concerns. There are many ways to show love. We can give others our time and energy to help improve the quality of their tangible existence. We can use our time and skills to make something for loved ones. People often say that it’s the thought that counts, but this is usually meant to excuse a lack of effort. If we put care into what we make, these gifts will be seen as both thoughtful AND enjoyable.

This card in reverse can also suggest greed, but in the current context, I would interpret that a little differently. Pressure to perform as expected can cause many of us to withdraw. I sense fear of a sort in this card, too. Perhaps we fear that others will not return our efforts of generosity. Giving to get or giving only because we received is a strangely deceptive cycle. Overall, this card is a reminder that how we treat others is important. A balance of the material and spiritual is essential for our well-being, and the act of giving supports that balance.

Considerations for the reversed Six of Pentacles:

1. What actions by others make you feel loved?
2. How do you typically show your love for others?
3. Think about those closest to you, people you would want to demonstrate your care for with a gift of some sort. What do you think makes each of them feel loved? How could you tailor your gift to match this?

How to Do a Serenity Tarot Reading

A Tarot spread to help you heal and find inner peace


The famous singer Marvin Gaye once said, “If you cannot find peace within yourself, you’ll never find it anywhere else.” How true this is! Unfortunately, sometimes it seems as if life gets in the way, and achieving tranquility is harder than it should be. Are you struggling with overcoming grief, feeling bombarded by the negativity in the news, or managing some kind of internal conflict? This 6-card do-it-yourself Serenity Tarot spread shows you exactly what you need to do to clear out the emotional clutter, and put yourself back onto a more positive path. Keep reading to see how YOU can use this spread to heal.

Position 1: Foundation card

Heart of the issue

The first card of this reading takes a look at what’s really at the center of your suffering. While it’s usually pretty easy to identify how we’re feeling, sometimes we don’t know why we’re feeling the way we do. When pulling this card, make sure to sit and focus on the emotions you’re experiencing at that moment. Allow yourself to fully embrace what it is that’s going on in your head and heart. Think of this card as putting the spotlight on the darkness you’re experiencing right now.

Position 2: Barrier card

What is blocking you from healing?

The path to healing is not a straight line. The Barrier Card will help you see what it is that has been preventing you from finding the inner peace you need. Sometimes these stumbling blocks come from outside influences, and sometimes the struggle is coming from within. The message you receive from this card will allow you to confront — and deal with — what has been stopping you from finding inner peace.

Position 3: Healing card

Advice on how to move forward

When we’re swimming in an ocean of emotion, it’s not always easy to see what it is we need to do to feel good again. The third card in this spread takes a look at your situation and gives you the practical insight and advice needed to help soothe any anxiety or uncertainty you’re feeling. Think of the Healing Card as your own personal counselor, helping guide you towards a better future.

Position 4: External card

What you can do to help others

In dark times it is not only we who are hurting — others around us may be as well. We all have an internal light that acts as a beacon of hope no matter how dark these times may seem, and your External Card helps you see what this special gift is. Is your higher power that you act as a pillar of strength? Or, is it your unwavering compassion for those suffering around you?

Position 5: Internal card

What you can do to help yourself

The Tarot is known for its ability to empower us, and there is nothing more empowering than learning that everything you need to be happy is already inside of you. Think of your fifth card as your “self” card, one that shines a spotlight on your greatest source of inner strength. The insight revealed in this position will show you that not only is healing is possible, but that you already have what it takes to get there.

Position 6: Revelation card

Lessons you can learn from this situation

While it may not seem like it at the time, there is always a silver lining in times of adversity. Not only can our suffering teach us important lessons about life, but it can also teach us important lessons about ourselves. Think of your Revelation Card as a glimpse into your future — a future where you’re stronger and wiser for having gone through this situation.

No matter what it is you’re dealing with right now, this simple 6-card Tarot reading can help guide you towards a happier, brighter tomorrow. Are you ready to get started? Take a deep breath, shuffle the cards, and let the power of the Tarot guide you now.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

Lust



While similar to classic Tarot’s Strength card, Lust goes a step further by suggesting we should enjoy the pleasures of exercising our strengths, sating our passions, and embracing that which allows one to express the majesty of their unique self. The lust this card indicates is not purely sexual, but at its most basic this lust is a primal desire to experience life to the fullest degree possible while taming our more beastly side. Lust implies that we not fight with our base instincts, but rather that we accept and manage and nourish them as an essential aspect of maintaining a balanced, complete self.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

The Green Man

Where the Green Man appears the mystery and untamed energy of nature abounds. The Green Man indicates the presence of choices and powers that have not been muted by civilization. The Green Man represents the antithesis of technology and industrialization. He offers primal energies veiled in mystery and derived from the spirit of nature in its purest form.

As a daily card, The Green Man indicates you are in a place where you will be well served by exploring your place in the natural world. At the moment the wisdom that will serve you best cannot be found in books or on talk shows or extracted from today’s headlines. What’s called for is an affirmation of your place in the natural world.

Psychic Tip of the Day

UNCOVERED
You are confronted by a misunderstanding that you might have used to your advantage. Someone is not as forgiving this time. Are you discovering a new set of facts?

 

Witches Rune for the Day

 

The Blank Rune

Meaning: This is a rune of difficulty and negative influences will rule your life for a time, but as all difficulties are a learning experience it will lead to improved personal perspective and progress on your life’s path. Always consult the surrounding runes with this stone. If it lies with a positive stone, it indicates that the pain of this experience will lead to a beneficial change in circumstances.

Your Earth Sky News for December 5th: Moon and Gemini

On December 4 and 5, 2017, a full-looking moon shines in front of the constellation Gemini the Twins, the radiant of the upcoming Geminid meteor shower. The Geminids are an annual shower, active from early to middle December. In 2017, the shower is expected to peak around December 12 and 13. Still, you might see a Geminid meteor or two tonight, despite tonight’s drenching moonlight.

Also, Gemini’s brightest stars, Castor and Pollux, will likely withstand tonight’s moonlit glare, as seen from most places.

If you can, pick out the star Castor. It’s near the radiant point of the Geminid meteor shower.

Look for the moon and Gemini stars to rise over your eastern horizon by mid-evening at mid-northern latitudes (and at a later hour from the Southern Hemisphere). Click here for recommended almanacs that’ll tell you the rising time of the moon in your sky. And to find out the rising times for Castor and Pollux (and other bright stars), click here.

The moon turned full on December 3, at 15:47 UTC; translate to your time zone. Converting UTC to U.S. time zones, that put the instant of the full moon at 10:47 a.m. EST, 9:47 a.m. CST, 8:47 a.m. MST and 7:47 a.m. PST on December 3. By the time you are reading this, full moon will likely have passed. Even so, the moon will look plenty full tonight, as it shines from early evening December 4 until dawn December 5.

There’s another way to find the constellation Gemini, once the moon moves on. Are you familiar with Orion the Hunter, the gem of all constellations? If so, you can star-hop from Orion to the constellation Gemini on a dark, moonless night. As depicted in the sky chart below, draw an imaginary line from Mintaka, the westernmost star of Orion’s Belt, through the bright ruddy star Betelgeuse.

At mid-northern latitudes, Orion and Gemnini rise at approximately the same time. At more southerly latitudes, like those in the Southern Hemisphere, Orion rises before Gemini. But no matter where you live worldwide – once the moon has moved to another part of the sky – Orion can serve as your ticket to locating the constellation Gemini the Twins.

Bottom line: The December 4, 2017 moon is in front of the constellation Gemini. Star-hop to Castor and Pollux – Gemini’s brightest stars – on this moonlit night. The star Castor is near the radiant point of the annual Geminid meteor shower.

 

A Little Humor for Your Day

And Goddess Made Dogs & Cats


Man said, “Goddess, when I was in the garden, you walked with me every day. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here, and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me.”

And the Goddess said, “No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever, who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be at times, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourself.”

And the Goddess created a new animal to be a companion for Man. And it was a good animal. And the Goddess was pleased. And the new animal was pleased to be with Man, and he wagged his tail a lot.

And Man said, “Goddess, I have already named all the animals on your Earth. I cannot think of a name for this new animal.”

And the Goddess said, “No problem! Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a partial reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG.”

And DOG lived with Man, was a companion to him, and loved him. And DOG was beside Man, all the day long. And Man was comforted. And the Goddess was pleased. And DOG was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that Man’s spirit guide came to the Goddess and said, “Mother, Man has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock, and he believes he is worthy of adoration. DOG has indeed taught him that he is loved, but perhaps too well.”

And the Goddess said, “No problem! I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever, who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not always worthy of adoration.”

And the Goddess created CAT to be a companion to Man.

And CAT would not obey Man. And CAT would love Man when CAT chose to love Man, and not when Man chose CAT to share affection.

And when Man gazed into CAT’s eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Man learned humility.

And the Goddess was pleased. And Man was greatly improved. And DOG was happy, and wagged his tail.

Full Moon in Gemini: A Kaleidoscope of Dreams

Read your sign’s horoscope for the Full Moon in Gemini


The surreal winds of the Gemini Full Moon on December 3, 2017, oppose the idealistic rays of the Sagittarius Sun, sparking burning curiosities, fickle flirtations, and endless conversations. The cosmic noise factor is amplified by Mercury turning retrograde the same day, leaving everyone a bit dazed and confused for the next three weeks. Also during this Full Moon, a blurry Moon-Neptune square plus a fuzzy Jupiter-Neptune trine magnify dreams, adding a wide-angle distortion filter to the picture; it’s almost impossible to see the truth even when it is staring back at you. This is a metaphysical showdown — facts vs. beliefs, spiritual vs. superficial, and clarity vs. illusion. Dancing with a myriad of dualities can be an entertaining and enlightening experience if emotional flexibility, mental agility, and a swift wit are always within reach.

Time warp

Time travel may seem like a viable option while the Gemini Full Moon lights up the galaxy, and mystical Neptune weaves enchanting threads from the past, present, and future into a cosmic tapestry where memories intersect with dreams. Mental Mercury’s standstill during this busy Full Moon tosses a monkey wrench into an already overpacked calendar, warning you to doublecheck packages and plans as you prepare for the holidays ahead. Alleviate Mercury’s distracting influence by exercising the retrograde remedies of discernment, discretion, and discipline. Observing the “rule of re” allows you to harness the true power of this often-misaligned planetary cycle. Steer clear of new business while you realign your priorities, reassess your finances, re-evaluate your relationships, review your achievements, reconnect with friends, and recommit to your dreams. Personalize this list to fit your needs and you will have a master plan for conquering the extra stress of this holiday season.

Infinite realities

This perpetually curious Gemini Full Moon casts variety as the spice of life and a plethora of possibilities sparkle in its illuminating light. Talking seems to be all the rage with everyone having their own cause to promote or philosophy to espouse, but it all starts to sound like radio static if everyone is speaking at once. Repeating past stories or forgetting significant details is pretty much guaranteed now, but the distraction ratio is off the charts so it’s easy to overlook mistakes. Resist the temptation to fill up the space with lots of words if your message is tired or of little substance. Exercise your creativity by adding an intelligent voice to the debate. Tap into your spiritual side for new answers to old questions.

Neptune, the planet of magic and illusion, squares off with this flighty Gemini Full Moon, prompting you to wonder what is real and what is imagined. Permissive Jupiter’s presence in the picture encourages you to explore your world with relish and abandon, but extreme measures must be taken in moderation. Embarking on an adventure is a logistical nightmare now, but you can travel anywhere you wish in your mind. Stepping out into the great wide open may feel frightening at first — which is why so many reach for an easy escape. Resist the temptation to give in to your fears and stretch your spiritual muscles, instead. All that glitters isn’t gold but your dreams are a priceless resource. With so many worldly distractions at your feet, consciously choosing a path of enlightenment sets an inspiring example. Experiment with the concept that energy flows where attention goes by centering your focus on what matters most. Your imagination is the doorway to your heart.

Tarot Card of this Full Moon:

Knight of Swords 

Mischievous Mercury plays a starring role in this Gemini Full Moon feature film. The Greek god Hermes (pictured in this Knight of Swords from the Winged Spirit deck) was later named Mercury by the Romans. The winged messenger is the original superhero, shuttling messages between the material world and other dimensions. The fearless Knight’s love of adventure and pursuit of knowledge correspon with the idealism of the Sagittarius Sun. Be courageous and clever as you expand your mental, physical, and spiritual horizons.

Crystals for this Full Moon:

Ametrine (pictured): a combination quartz containing amethyst and citrine. This sweet stone alleviates stress, clears mental fog, offers spiritual clarity, sharpens intuition, enhances learning, and unleashes creativity

Clear apophyllite: boosts brain power, encourages truth-telling, facilitates journeys, fosters inter-dimensional communication, and strengthens the connection to one’s higher self

Watermelon tourmaline: instills patience, assists one in expressing intentions clearly, cultivates serenity and synchronicity, and shifts the consciousness from the brain to the heart


This inquisitive Gemini Full Moon stretches your mental agility, emotional flexibility, and spiritual limits. How far are you willing to go? Read your sign’s horoscope now…

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

The temptation to share every bright idea is strong, but sometimes a plan takes on a life of its own once it is under the light of public scrutiny. You can talk all you want but most folks are going to tune out and just nod their heads while you run your mouth. Your enthusiasm is palpable, but your thoughts are scattered all over the map near this Full Moon in Gemini. Consider a solo expedition or choose someone who is truly invested in your dreams to accompany you on a spiritual adventure. A deep well of compassion and a powerful connection to the divine are two of the many treasures you might discover if you are willing to explore the trails of your own imagination.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

The noise of the holiday season is amplified by everyone’s expectations, and clear communication is essential if you want to maintain relationship harmony around this Full Moon. You may think an epic shopping spree is mandatory now, so you can shower gifts on your loved ones and impress them with your generosity. Or you might get lost in a fairytale left over from your childhood as you follow the crowd in pursuit of your happily-ever-after. There’s nothing wrong with wandering around in a dream as long as you remember what is real and what is fantasy when you wake up.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

A familiar call for freedom rings in your head as you find yourself overbooked, overcommitted, and overwhelmed at this Full Moon in your sign. Old patterns of filling every inch of your mental bandwidth with a thousand distractions are keeping you from working more efficiently, both in your personal and professional spheres. Your charm is tough to resist as you flirt without even trying, but re-evaluating your priorities may mean you don’t lead anyone on in the process. Objectivity is your saving grace, but it’s nowhere to be found now as you wear your dreams on your sleeve for the whole world to see. Follow your heart but don’t leave home without your common sense.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

Your dreams might be keeping you up at night as you replay your joys and your regrets, leaving you slightly sleep-deprived and extremely sensitive during the waking hours. Paranoia could creep in as you rush around trying to catch up on a long list of chores, and you may start to fear that people are hiding critical facts from you. The truth is you are the one with the big secrets now, and you are not obligated to share them until you are ready. Translate the symbols of your imagination into your next creative masterpiece.

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your charisma lights up the stage, and others are drawn to you like moths to a flame. You cherish your position in the community and rarely disappoint your adoring fans. Naturally, you aim to please your audience, but you are afraid of missing your private meeting with your muse if you get lost in the crowd now. Fulfilling the expectations of others can be a seductive trap, limiting you from releasing your true potential. Create for the sole sake of passionate self-expression and set your soul on fire.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You wish you could merge your personal and your professional worlds for the sake of productivity, but not everyone is on the same page near this Full Moon in Gemini. A fog of confusion permeates the atmosphere and you may find it easier to talk to strangers than friends. An overall lack of clarity regarding your most important relationships might even have you wondering who you can trust. Turn off the endless mental chatter and reassess your priorities with an objective eye. Expecting perfection sends you down a path of disillusion and disappointment. Find your center and your faith in people will return.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

The urge to escape the holiday hustle is irresistible and you’re packing your bags before you even know your destination. It’s easy as pie to convince yourself that you deserve a break, even if it’s just a working vacation or a change of scenery. Truth be told your daily routine is stale and overdue for a healthy rearrangement. Stretching your mental and physical boundaries empowers you to thrive in your immediate environment and act as a positive inspiration for everyone around you. Spell out your intentions to keep confusion to a minimum, but don’t expect immediate validation for your life choices. All you can really do is listen to your heart.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

The safe thing to do is to smile and keep moving now; but real growth is only possible if you shut out the external interference and push past the internal remnants of resistance regarding the topic of intimacy. Flirting is more fun than fighting, and skating around a relationship conversation might be your first preference near this Full Moon. However, sinking into your vulnerability invites more meaningful interactions where hearts and minds connect on a new playing field. Your imagination is operating on overdrive, tricking you into thinking your dreams are real. Interdimensional dancing isn’t for everyone, but you are in your element as you search for your next source of inspiration. A word of warning: If you start to believe you are a character in your creation, you may need to call for assistance.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

The dichotomy of independence versus relationship is palpable as you struggle to find the right balance between freedom and commitment. Mixing and mingling is impossible to avoid near this holiday Full Moon, and why would you evade the spotlight when you are loved everywhere you go? But all the superficial chit-chat and flirtatious banter can leave you feeling bittersweet when you are secretly craving a deeper connection with yourself. Give the gift of self-love by taking the time to figure out what your heart truly wants. Honoring your needs encourages others to do the same. The roots of compassion start within.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You may go through the motions of performing your regular routine, but it is clearly obvious that your mind is not on the work at hand. Your family and friends do their best to keep you grounded, but your brain continues to run a full-length film of epic proportions in your imagination. Mistakes and misunderstandings happen when your head isn’t in the game. The truth is, the more you try to drown out this cosmic distraction with pragmatism and chores, the louder and bigger it gets. Stop pretending everything is normal and your perspective will start to take a philosophical turn. Meandering down a spiritual path allows you to discover treasure beyond your wildest dreams.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Opportunities are knocking on every door around this Full Moon, but you can only answer so many at once. Knowing when to say no is critical now, but knowing when to say yes is even more important when it comes to love affairs or creative pursuits. Romance is on your mind, but commitment isn’t; be clear about your intentions right from the start. A foot-loose and fancy-free lifestyle might be loads of fun now, but it can also keep your heart from getting invested. Overindulgence and overexpansion may send you wandering down the wrong path if you’re unwilling to follow your moral compass. Choose quality over quantity and meaningful over more.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

You are experiencing the cosmic-twin energy in a very personal way as one half of you wants to remain curled up at home watching your fantasies, while the other half of you thrives on being needed at work or in the community. An irrepressible yearning for variety may clash with previously scheduled commitments, but fun can be found in cleverly rearranging your plans to accommodate fickle tastes and inquiring minds. You delight in making others smile, but in the process of spreading glee your feelings might get misplaced in all the glitter and lights. Give yourself the gift of solitude when your heart requests it.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, November 29th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

The Moon in your sign brings attention your way, dear Aries, and allows you to express yourself more spontaneously. Even so, it can also bring out your impatience, especially with Mars, your ruler, in challenging aspect with Chiron and approaching an opposition with Uranus. The next couple of days can be a little tense, particularly in close relationships. You can be impatient with diffidence or indirectness. Today, there can be a tendency to push when someone backs away or to retreat when someone pushes you. This is not an intentional game, but rather a reflection of uncertainty about what you want. It’s not the best time for healthy relating patterns so you might consider that even though you crave company more than usual these days, you might need some personal space right now.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

You’re in a retiring mood again today, dear Taurus, or perhaps a little emotionally distant. There can be quite a few distractions, however, and a general lack of direction, so that it’s better to avoid detail-oriented work or activities, if possible. This way, dreamy states of mind can serve as pleasing detours from the strains, pressures, or monotony of daily life. However, try not to sign anything or commit yourself to what appear to be amazing plans now, as they may turn out to be impractical ventures down the road. This is not the time to get clear answers from others, and perhaps even yourself, as motivation levels may be temporarily down. If there’s been unrest at work or in your personal life, the next two days can see you pushed to deal with it.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

You’re seeking out pleasant company again today, Gemini, but there can be some tension brewing in your social life. If so, it’s likely to reach a head tomorrow or the next. For now, feeling a little off may be the first sign. You might struggle with a decision, as there is a sense that you need to give something up in order to gain something else. There might also be a dilemma between responsibility and pleasure today. Do your best to relax so that you can envision things more clearly and weigh the pros and cons. This way, you’ll more readily come to a compromise rather than an extreme. A relaxed attitude is essential now, not only for yourself but with others as well. Pushing can lead to mistakes or social blunders today.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

With the Moon at the top of your solar chart, you can feel some pressure to do your best, dear Cancer. You’re aware of extra pairs of eyes looking your way with the Moon in this highly visible part of your chart! There can be some tensions brewing between your personal and public or professional lives which can reach a head tomorrow. For now, hints are happening around you, so take notes! Mars and Chiron in an awkward angle can stimulate a subtle feeling of imbalance, and you can feel at once pressured to make decisions revolving around family or your personal life and confused about your next step. You are definitely not in the mood to be pushed or prodded. Hesitation and doubt are not bad words – sometimes they are necessary delays that allow ourselves to catch up with what’s going on around us, and this may be what’s happening now.

Leo

Leo
Leo

You’re once again seeking out-of-the-ordinary activities and experiences today, dear Leo, even if this merely happens on the mental plane. However, there can be tension brewing regarding differences of opinion or about having too much on your plate. While this is likely to reach a head tomorrow, today you can sense some unrest. In fact, essential clues and hints may drop now that better prepare you for any standoffs or big revelations that might occur later. Financial or intimate matters can be confusing or worrisome, or you may be at a loss at how to broach a tricky subject. Not knowing where you stand in these areas of life may be subtly undermining your current interests and projects.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Tensions with money, ownership, or workload and shared responsibilities are mounting now, Virgo. While this may take another day or two to play out, you’re likely to confront some of these matters today, even if this happens indirectly. An awkward angle between Mars and Chiron points to the need to make adjustments rather than bold moves. Others may not be clear with you today, but consider that they may not be in touch with what it is they truly desire. Try not to worry about mixed signals and instead wait until others have sorted things out. Asserting yourself may have awkward results since this is not the best day to understand your own desires, either. This also applies to material desires, so you might want to put off making larger purchases just for now.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

The Moon is in your opposing sign all day, dear Libra, and while you may not be at a peak energetically speaking, you’re more invested than usual in your close relationships. With Mars in your sign in an awkward angle to Chiron, however, there can be some difficulty fulfilling your desires, possibly because you know you want something but you can’t entirely define what that something is! You might also struggle with some self-doubt. Treat any hesitance you feel now as a chance to slow down and make adjustments. Solutions to problems may not be immediately apparent. There can be a feeling of being delayed or blocked, and patience is necessary. Asserting yourself feels complicated today. Plans may need some reassessment, and you might want to look within to find answers to what it is that is holding you back. Mars is building to an opposition with Uranus, and self-reflection now can pay off later.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

The Moon in your work and health sector again today keeps you interested in solving problems and ironing out details, dear Scorpio. Even so, a small storm is brewing related to your work-rest balance, and it’s best to think of ways to improve the situation. Confidence may not be above-average, particularly when it has to do with any recent concerns in your love life, with children, or a creative project, so it is still better to wait things out before pushing forward. Hesitance may be your friend now as it gives you a chance to think things through. However, emotional energy can drive you later today, and you can feel invigorated.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

While the Moon in your creative sector is energizing, Sagittarius, some signs are pointing to the need for extra rest today, so aim for balance. A Mars-Uranus clash is brewing, and while it’ll only reach a head tomorrow and the next day, you’re likely to feel something is a little off today. It’s not an appropriate time for pushing personal plans ahead with this kind of uncertainty hanging over the day. There can be some feelings of being unsettled in your social or romantic life. If you have doubts about a matter today, it may be a sign that you need to wait or delay important decisions. Take the time to consider ways you may be holding back from pursuing your social goals.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

The Moon spends another day in your home and family sector, dear Capricorn, and you need a little extra rest. Decisions can be difficult to make today. There can be doubts about your next step even though a feeling of being unsettled or unsatisfied is clear. It’s unlikely to be a day of bravery and confidence, but rather one of adjustments. Be clear in communications today, especially in a formal or official capacity, as misunderstandings can be costly now. Look for ways that you may be shooting yourself in the foot when it comes to advancing your goals, as fear of going your own way or asserting yourself may be holding you back from thriving.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

There can be a strong desire to get away from it all today, dear Aquarius, or to break the routine in some significant way, but you may not feel you have the means to do so, or you could be indecisive about where you want to go or what you want to do. Restlessness is likely, particularly if you’ve felt tied down or overwhelmed by studies or mundane paperwork in recent days. Consider, also, whether fear of stating your beliefs is holding you back from a healthy conversation. Find small ways to settle yourself today, as Mars and Uranus will meet in opposition in just two days, and self-reflection and understanding will help any future revelations feel far less abrupt.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

While the Moon in your comfortable solar second house encourages you to seek out predictability today, dear Pisces, you can feel a little off-center with a Mars-Chiron aspect in play, especially as the day advances. Confidence levels may not be up to par. Situations and people might leave you feeling drained or confused. Try to get in touch with what it is you truly want, as not knowing can, in fact, be the source of restlessness. Look for clues that you may be holding on too tightly to a particular attitude, person, or thing, and what you might do to correct this imbalance. Watch for a tendency to hold onto anger in an effort to show you care.

 

 

 

If You Were Born Today, November 29

You are charismatic, warm, articulate, and extremely intuitive. You love to make people laugh, and come across as fun and charming, if a little sarcastic. You have a strong sense of responsibility and worry about the future more than is typical of a Sagittarius personality. However, your sense of fun always comes shining through. You like to stay informed and on top of things. When you’re not “in the know” you are a lot less confident. Learning about anything and everything is a life-long hobby. Famous people born today: C. S. Lewis, Howie Mandel, Chuck Mangione, Andrew McCarthy, Garry Shandling, Anna Faris.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

Something big is in the works regarding your love or social life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love and friendship this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money. Relationships are mutually beneficial and naturally equal, fair, and balanced during this period of your life. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing.

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year. You may, in fact, have a lot of work to do in relative solitude or you might often retreat to study, work, or think. You might be required to travel for business purposes. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You may be actively involved in teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Passions are stirred and you’re in a good position for connecting with others to accomplish your goals. There can be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing romance.

You express yourself more clearly and you can be excellent at guiding and instructing others. There is a pronounced ability to order your thoughts and ideas, come up with designs, and recognize patterns. You can especially enjoy making plans, lists, and connections this year.

However, this can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. Technology may be a source of irritation, and electrical appliances may break down or not work up to par.

Energy fluctuates this year. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere and it gives you the chance to deal with it. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, this can be an excellent year in which to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

Making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead, or widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increases and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.

Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely this year, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. The year is good for enjoying social or love opportunities. Your love or social life grows and satisfies. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities. Cooperation brings rewards more than usual.

2017 is a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of discovery and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise, promote, and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken for the better. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, diversify, mingle.

2018 will be a Number Six year for you. Ruled by Venus. This is a year of relative contentment. It’s a time when love is the easiest to attract, and partnerships formed under this vibration have a better chance for longevity. You are especially able to attract others–and material things as well–this year. This is a good year for establishing harmony in the family and in the home. Advice – develop existing relationships, be positive and receptive because these kinds of energies help you to attract what you desire.

 

 

Get A Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, November 30th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

Today is far more intense than yesterday, dear Aries, and you can use this to your advantage with meaningful work or projects. Even so, today and tomorrow bring rebellious themes as Mars, your fiery ruler, opposes Uranus. This influence occurs approximately every two years and is a time for releasing frustrations if we’ve been feeling restricted, but how you express yourself now is what makes or breaks the day. You may feel offended or blocked. An issue that’s been brewing in your life can come to a head. This may take the form of a conflict in a relationship. There can be some tension as something pushes for a resolution. Asserting your independence is your knee-jerk reaction with Uranus in your sign. However, it’s important to avoid dramatic actions until the dust settles. Impatience is a liability now. Pace yourself and avoid recklessness to prevent accidents or arguments. Your energy, though up and down, might be harnessed to do something creative or productive, and if you manage, you could move mountains.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Mars in your solar sixth house has been helpful and challenging at once, dear Taurus, as you can get through your work with enthusiasm, but you might also take costly shortcuts or display impatience with others. Today and tomorrow, this latter tendency is very strong. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere but is rooted in issues that you’ve buried and haven’t yet confronted — or haven’t yet resolved. Watch for a tendency to act out in ways that get you in trouble, as you may unwittingly take on the role of instigator. You could find yourself fixated on an unresolved, frustrating matter from the past, and pressured to put it behind you. People can be a little temperamental today, and it’s probably better if you remain flexible when it comes to schedules and plans, as they may not be running smoothly. You could be tempted to take shortcuts with your work, but instead of saving time, they’re inclined to cost you in the long run. Take a breath and don’t let impatience rule the day, even if the pace around you is hectic or you’re frustrated with co-workers or routines. Avoid pushing your body too hard, but do release frustration through creative channels such as safe exercise.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

People in your life may be unreliable right now, dear Gemini, or your social life can feel like a bit of a rollercoaster today and tomorrow. It’s also possible that you’re undecided about a friendship and you’re sending or receiving mixed signals. Stubborn or rebellious behavior is a strong possibility now, whether it’s you or a friend who’s the instigator! Aim to be assertive rather than rebellious — that way, you’re living your life on your terms rather than living life in reaction to others. Also, strive to avoid short-sighted decision making, which is a strong inclination under today’s astrological weather. There is undoubtedly a tendency for people to be on a short fuse if they are feeling blocked or restricted. Feelings and desires can emerge abruptly, but you can choose to express them calmly for better results. If something is building inside you that needs a release, finding healthy ways to communicate it can be cleansing.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

A Mars-Uranus opposition influencing the day brings “enough is enough!” energy to your life, dear Cancer, particularly related to family, home, work, and responsibilities. Something that’s been brewing inside of you needs a release, and you’re not putting up with it any longer. There can be a conflict involving family or work-family balance. Responsibilities are strong on you, and you may be vying for particular freedoms. It’s important to know yourself and what anger or resentment is brewing inside of you, as these things can be triggered today. Free yourself of things that are holding you back from success, but do so prudently. While it may seem that you can hitch a free ride today, this is likely an illusion. Assess risks carefully, and aim to be as tolerant as possible. Do your best not to react from a place of rebellion, which can be a knee-jerk reaction, and avoid abruptness or a defiant attitude for best results. Seek out creative or productive ways to release pent-up frustrations.

Leo

Leo
Leo

This can be a time for experiencing new and exciting changes, dear Leo, but there can be some stress today as your needs for variety, independence, and freedom can dominate. Mundane tasks capture your attention, but the urge to get out and about is bound to grab hold of you as well. Finding a balance can be difficult, but necessary to regain peace of mind. Avoid letting others force a change on you; instead, be as honest as you can with yourself and identify what you need to do to move forward. Holding on too tightly to a specific method, belief, or point of view may not be worth the tension. Know when to let go, and avoid pushing. Short-sightedness can be a problem today and tomorrow. However, energies presiding now can also stimulate a strong desire to put something behind you. Sitting on anger might invite mishaps, accidents, and arguments. Sounding off or rushing out angry messages can cause real damage. As such, a middle ground should be sought. Make room for the possibility of real breakthroughs now.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

You’re more inclined than usual to stand your ground and assert your desires these days, dear Virgo, as well as defend your honor! If others are not doing their share or if you can’t entirely rely on someone or a source of support, you’re likely to express your frustration now. You may feel you’ve been shouldering far too many responsibilities and people around you are in and out as they please. Today, a Mars-Uranus opposition can bring tension to a head. The temptation is to react quickly and perhaps rebelliously, and while the shock value of this might have a few desirable effects, a more mindful approach to frustrations has better odds. While you can feel a strong desire for a change of scenery, there may be part of you that is worried or fearful of breaking new territory and making changes. This is a time to think carefully about your life and consider ways to free yourself of restrictions that are holding you back from happiness. A fresh start can only happen after clearing out resentment and other negatively-charged energy. Try not to be dependent on others for answers and resolutions, however as this keeps you in a state of unrest. Look for ways to manage your outlook instead.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

Conflicts with a partner, special friend, or advisor may present themselves now, dear Libra, with Mars in your sign facing off against Uranus. This can be a time when you feel you’re putting in all the effort and others are in and out as they please or not as committed, and it can be frustrating. You may be in reaction mode, but it’s better to keep your head rather than act impulsively or out of anger. Others may seem unreliable today, or they could bring surprises that feel off or unsettling. If someone tries to box you in or shows displays of independence, you are likely to make it known that you are going your own way! You could be quite ambitious about cutting out difficult situations from your life and wanting to put them behind you. Try not to put unrealistic pressure or time limits on something that doesn’t need to be rushed. This is a time for clearing the decks so that you can go forward with more confidence and less burden. Use self-restraint as much as possible today, but if you need to clear the air, aim to do so mindfully.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

Today, you may lack the energy, time, or desire needed to achieve your goals, dear Scorpio, and facing a chaotic schedule can pull up all sorts of frustration. Something could trigger buried anger or resentment, and this can very well be a change of –or overloaded– schedule. If you’re not certain about being direct with others, then impatience can be a byproduct. Pushing yourself beyond your limits can lead to a variety of health complaints, so do your best to learn what those limits are. If you can manage it, try to work independently or arrange things so that you can work at your own pace. There is a tendency now to act or react without considering the consequences, but behind all of this is an important issue that has been building and needs some release. How you clear the air determines whether this is disruptive or helpful. Express yourself in some way, but try to do so constructively. Don’t be an agitator, but you shouldn’t be a doormat either. Find a balance, and deal with issues so that they don’t negatively impact your health, energy, and work.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Restlessness and discontent are likely today, dear Sagittarius, but they can push you to make positive changes and improvements, or to release adverse situations or frustrations and put them behind you. Getting to this positive place today and tomorrow may mean navigating a bumpy road. For some of you, the grass looks greener elsewhere. There can be erratic behavior in others or sudden events that take you by surprise. A clash or conflict can arise now related to romance, the pursuit of pleasure, or friends. Energy in your social life is strong today, but it can also be excessive and a little volatile. However, if impatience and impulsiveness are resisted, it can be a good time for discovering, likely through relationships with others, what you can no longer tolerate and need to put behind you. Act with self-control today as much as possible for best results. It would be wise to guard against gambling and taking risks. Be patient with yourself and others. However, if something has been building within and can no longer be accepted, do release it in as positive a way as possible, as clearing the air may be just what’s needed for a fresh start.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

There may be obstacles or people standing in the way of your path to your goals these days, dear Capricorn, and it can be challenging to keep your temper today. You may become too focused on the way you think things should be, and too impatient for these things to materialize right now. Double check that you’re not expecting too much too soon. Crankiness tends to come from inner restlessness and a desire to break free from restrictive circumstances, even though you have been highly motivated to reach your goals. This may be a signal to release pressure. As well, frustrations today can alert you to the need to understand yourself and your desires better. If you’ve been hotly pursuing something but aren’t honestly sure in your heart that you want it, then you’re likely to feel a little off kilter now. Watch for impulsive or hot-headed moves and short-sighted decisions, and listen to your heart instead. Be honest about what’s bothering you, but keep things cool. Recently buried and building frustrations can surface, but if handled well, they help clear a path for you to start again feeling fresh and unburdened.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Consider that freeing yourself from certain problems that have been weighing you down can be liberating this week, dear Aquarius. A Mars-Uranus opposition occurs now, and it comes every two years or so, encouraging you to release pent-up frustrations. Inner discontent is possible if you want to branch out but find it difficult to get where you want to go, possibly due to disorganization in your daily life or upset schedules. Disagreements can put you in the position that you’d rather go your own way, and others may be challenging your independence or freedom, or you perceive things this way. While frustrations are real and probably have been building, it’s how you handle them at this critical time that will determine whether you go forward refreshed or bothered. Be a little more cautious than usual with mechanical things, driving, walking, and the like, as impatience can trip you up, sometimes literally. Haste makes waste when it comes to paperwork and communications, so try not to miss important steps. Watch for the temptation to sound off if something that’s communicated frustrates you. However, if you need a push to make a change, and you’re confident it’s coming from the heart and not from pride or a whim, then this can be a time to break free.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

Patience is in short supply with a Mars-Uranus opposition influencing today and tomorrow, dear Pisces. Someone who is in the position to affect your income can frustrate you now, or you feel tense about being dependent on someone’s support or approval. Some of you are craving more financial freedom. Taking a calculated risk is one thing, and jumping into something blind is another. If the stakes are low, not much can be lost, except perhaps a bit of pride. If the stakes are high, wait for a day when your judgment and patience are improved. Whatever the case may be, essential changes that put you back into the driver’s seat are imminent, with respect, of course, for important others’ contributions and input. The temptation may be to take quick action, and this can be great if you’re in touch with your heart, but may not be wise if you haven’t given something enough thought or if you’re acting from a place of ego. Watch or impulsiveness related to personal finances or an intimate relationship. Listen to any buried desires that emerge now, but try not to act on sudden impulses that seem to come out of nowhere. Clear out the junk now, carefully and respectfully, so that you can begin attracting enlightening, fresh, and positive experiences.

 

Tarot Card of the Day

Three of Wands


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.

A Three in this suit symbolizes an inner balance that allows you to feel more optimistic about new endeavors you are committed to, or want to commit to. In the illustrated Tarots, the human character is standing on his balcony, watching ships leave the harbor, loaded with his goods for far-off ports, dreaming of the fortune he will reap if all goes well. Summon the optimism within you.

This energy must be patient and trusting, because he or she will have to wait some time to find out how the ships have fared. Meanwhile, a lot of resources are tied up until they return with the bounty. Only those truly confident in their ideas and abilities would undertake such a risk. This card represents the energy a person needs to take on great adventures and accomplish noble (and remunerative) deeds.

A detail that sometimes appears in the more esoteric Tarots is a winged wand with two snakes twining around it, called the Caduceus, which is Mercury’s wand. This is an ancient symbol of the healer or shaman, one who can travel between the worlds to rescue souls from death or possession. Perhaps the feeling of empowerment this card represents points to the internal mechanisms of self-healing. Perhaps it refers to the courage it takes to be an entrepreneur or an inventor, which is in itself a magical process — bringing not only opportunity for success, but also an awakening to higher potentials.

December 2017 Tarot Forecast

Read your monthly and weekly Tarot readings for December 2017

december monthly tarot reading

Before we get started with the reading, here’s a note on the deck pictured in this month’s spread. These cards are from the Albano-Waite deck, a Rider-Waite clone first produced in 1968 by Frankie Albano and his company Tarot Productions. The deck, also released in miniature size and giant size (majors only), features extremely saturated, almost psychedelic coloring to the classic imagery and a beautiful gold sun stamp on the card backs. Unfortunately, this deck went out of print shortly after its creation. Years later, U.S. Games picked the deck back up for reproduction. You can tell the difference between versions in the image clarity and the box design; the vintage box front has no deck title, just an image of the Sun card.

Here’s a quick look at the overall spread for December:

Theme for the month: Four of Pentacles

The Four of Pentacles is such an interesting card to pull for this month’s theme. This can be a card of frugality, expressing concerns about holding on to the wealth and resources that have been amassed. That seems relevant in a month of holidays when many people are spending their hard-earned money on elaborate celebrations and travel. It is also a time when we traditionally show our love for others through gifts of material goods, additionally fitting for this card that is also concerned with identity, and how we humans express that identity through material possessions. These meanings are clearly illustrated in this deck’s imagery — the suit symbol is connected to each part of the figure’s being: head, heart, and foot. The central Pentacle is tightly gripped in the figure’s arms.

Expressing identity through tangible objects is very natural, and is not automatically the same thing as materialism, though that is a caution of the Four of Pentacles. While it is true that things we own can demonstrate our values and personalities to others, if we measure who we are and how we are doing solely by what we possess, other aspects of existence are left underdeveloped. This externalization of self-worth can also lead to stinginess and hoarding. What might really be at play here is a fear of loss. This sort of behavior often manifests when we feel powerless or out of control. If we hold tightly to what we have, it seems like we might be able to control our circumstances better. When other aspects of self-concept have been ignored, we have nothing else to rely on should we suffer a loss, making it harder to recover and resulting in a crisis of identity.

Meditation on the Four of Pentacles:

For those of us who celebrate gift-giving holidays, December is a month of giving but also often anticipation of getting. Kids make lists for Santa weeks in advance, and these lists often include extravagant items that strike fear into the hearts of parents on a budget. Relationships seem made or broken by the expression conveyed through the presents we give each other.

How do you balance expectation and fear of disappointment with a very different fear of living beyond your means?

Weekly Tarot card
December 1-7: Six of Pentacles reversed

Here’s this card again! We saw the Six of Pentacles last month as well, and it does seem that some of the lessons or struggles present in November are still with us currently. This is not unexpected. November marked the start of a chain of busy holidays; this year a number of stores where I live started merchandising for Christmas even before Halloween, and now are in full-swing with decorations and many additional products. In our spread, we have the Six of Pentacles positioned in reverse, which seems in direct alignment with this month’s theme card. I can’t help thinking about the fine line between holiday spirit and holiday pressure — pressure to find the perfect present for everyone on my list, pressure to get everything done on time… By some people’s standards, I’m already late if I’m still doing my holiday shopping now! And as noted above, if you’re operating on a budget, and many of us are, including everyone you care about and finding just the right thing for each of them can be tough.

When this card is reversed, it often indicates mishandling of resources, so I’m taking its appearance here as a warning. What sort of creative solutions might we find to honor those we love with clever gifts that don’t have to drain our resources? Last month’s appearance of this card asked us to think about different ways we could serve others. Generosity does not have to be financial, even though Pentacles are the suit of tangible concerns. There are many ways to show love. We can give others our time and energy to help improve the quality of their tangible existence. We can use our time and skills to make something for loved ones. People often say that it’s the thought that counts, but this is usually meant to excuse a lack of effort. If we put care into what we make, these gifts will be seen as both thoughtful AND enjoyable.

This card in reverse can also suggest greed, but in the current context, I would interpret that a little differently. Pressure to perform as expected can cause many of us to withdraw. I sense fear of a sort in this card, too. Perhaps we fear that others will not return our efforts of generosity. Giving to get or giving only because we received is a strangely deceptive cycle. Overall, this card is a reminder that how we treat others is important. A balance of the material and spiritual is essential for our well-being, and the act of giving supports that balance.

Considerations for the reversed Six of Pentacles:

1. What actions by others make you feel loved?
2. How do you typically show your love for others?
3. Think about those closest to you, people you would want to demonstrate your care for with a gift of some sort. What do you think makes each of them feel loved? How could you tailor your gift to match this?

Should You Start a Daily Tarot Ritual?

Learn what a daily Tarot reading ritual can do for you!


The things you do every day are the things that can impact your life the most. Through our daily rituals and routines, we create a sense of consistency and mindfulness that helps keep us centered when negative emotions, sudden developments, and surprise circumstances come up that could knock us off kilter. Yoga, meditation, prayer, cooking, exercise … these are all great rituals that, when done daily, can create a real sense of health, stability, and purpose for you. But perhaps one of the most beneficial daily rituals of all is a daily Tarot reading!

Any Tarot reading can provide an incredible amount of insight and understanding into whatever situation you’re facing. But daily Tarot readings go even further — by identifying the cards and messages that come up for you on a regular basis, start to realize the patterns in your life, the things that affect you most frequently, and all the ways you tend to react. When you can identify these patterns, you have all the power to embrace them or change them!

5 Reasons to start a daily Tarot reading ritual

1. Set intentions

We’ve all had those days when we wake up late, throw ourselves together, and stumble into our routine unprepared and unfocused. The problem is, those days usually don’t smooth out. The way you start your day — are you eager or are you exhausted? Optimistic or pessimistic? Open or closed off? — can totally dictate the day you have. You cannot control everything that will come up, but you can control the way you move through it. Pausing to set intentions for the day through a daily Tarot reading grounds your heart and mind so you enter every situation that arises with clarity and mindfulness.

2. See the patterns

It’s easy to compartmentalize our days, taking everything that happens from morning to night and tucking it away, in order to start fresh the next day. But when we look at each day as isolated from all the rest, we limit our ability to see the big picture of what’s happening in our lives. One little regret here, one little reward there may not seem like much. But when you start to realize a pattern of regret or a pattern of reward, you can start to see the reason these things recur, which gives you all the power to create more reward and less regret in the future.

3. Be present

Living in the moment is NOT easy. Fears, problems, and heartaches from the past — whether years ago or just days ago — are hard to ignore. Not to mention hopes and expectations for the future… But when you spend all your time in the past and the future, you miss everything that’s happening in the present moment. A daily Tarot reading ritual establishes a time to reconnect with yourself every day, in this exact moment, and identify the things that are affecting you most NOW.

4. Make difficult decisions

When you draw the cards for your Tarot reading, be intentional and tune into your intuition. It is your subconscious that knows which cards to pull, because it knows which messages you need to be hear. Sometimes our conscious minds are so full of trivial matters that we cannot see what we really need to see, making it tough to make any healthy decisions for ourselves. A daily Tarot reading helps you clear out the clutter of your daily life so you see what lies before you with greater clarity.

5. Find peace

Whether you’re experiencing a specific, heartfelt loss or change or you’re just feeling totally crazed out of your mind, a daily Tarot reading helps you not just with a one-time piece of advice, but with regular, recurring help through your process of healing. By meditating on the wisdom you receive from a reading, you’ll not only find clarity in your present situation, but a deeper sense of peace and calm in your daily life. And when the next issue arises — because you know it will! — you’ll be able to face it head-on using your greatest weapon: a healthy, centered mindset.

Three readings a day keeps the stress away

Many people read their horoscope or do a Tarot reading first thing in the morning, to set the tone for the day. But have you ever had a day that started out one way, then took a serious turn? Of course you have … we all have! That’s why not just one, but THREE Tarot readings a day can be so beneficial. You can not only set intentions for your day, but as circumstances arise throughout the day, you can check back in with another reading for more immediate, focused insight.

Your Love Tarot Card of the Day

The Devil


Pulling the Devil card does not mean that bad things are about to happen. What it does mean is that you have stooped to a level of thinking that is all about your ego. You have to look closely at what is driving you to be this way. You are in a wonderful relationship with an individual who adores you. You do not want to ruin the bond that is evolving between the two of you. You need to do some self-reflection in order to figure out what is going on with you under the surface.

Your Erotic Tarot Card of the Day

Strength


Your sex life gains some serious momentum today with the appearance of the Strength card. You have tremendous inner strength when it comes to getting what you want, and that includes sexual conquests.

Earth Sky News for November 29th:  Moon near Uranus

 

Tonight – November 29, 2017 – as the moon travels in front of the constellations of the zodiac, it’ll appear in the general direction of the planet Uranus. Tonight is a good night to locate the constellation Pisces, which is behind the moon and Uranus now. Then you can search for the stars of Pisces again – and maybe find Uranus, too – in a dark country sky during the second and third week of December, after the moon has dropped out of the evening sky.

What will you see of Pisces on this moonlit night? You might at least pick out the Circlet, which is a noticeable asterism within Pisces. (See the sky chart of the constellation Pisces below.)

Most stargazers need binoculars, a moon-free night and a detailed sky chart, like the one here via Sky & Telescope to see Uranus. This world is bigger than Earth, but it’s also 20 times farther from the sun than Earth is from the sun.

If you’re familiar with the Great Square of Pegasus and the Circlet of Pisces, make use of these star patterns to map out the general vicinity of Uranus. Uranus resides in front of the constellation Pisces and near the ecliptic.

This detailed sky chart is your ticket to finding the planet Uranus.

Uranus is the seventh planet outward from the sun. Even on a moonless night, Uranus appears no brighter than the faintest visible stars.

The moon – presently in front of the constellation Pisces – is waxing toward full and will be in front of the constellation Taurus on the night of the full moon.

Bottom line: On the night of November 29, 2017, the moon is located along our line of sight to the faint planet Uranus. But don’t expect to see Uranus in the moon’s glare.

Daily Tarot Card for the Day

The Lovers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: choice, decision, love, communication, inspiration (ideas from above)!

Astrological Correspondence: Gemini

The Lovers card is representative not only of crucial life choices, but also of lovers, couples, and other partnerships, like business partners, siblings, and friends. The angel between a woman and a man, depicted on this card, symbolizes the struggle of deciding to follow one’s heart versus one’s temptation or obligation. The Lovers card symbolizes the choices that must be made to progress toward higher self-awareness; choices also reflect emotional values, indecisiveness, hesitation, and our fears about making wrong choices. This applies not only to love relationships – it is applicable to any relationship in which people are drawn together, even a casual one. It’s the card of uncertainty!

 

 

Daily Love Tarot for the Day

The Emperor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Emperor card has selected you to let you know that you sow seeds of better things and more fulfilling times ahead. Give yourself permission to reach out for more, especially if you are dissatisfied. You create a solid foundation, built on a sense of higher purpose. If your current relationship suffers from stress, today let tender actions reveal what you may be unable to put into words. Rebuild, from the ground up.

 

Your Daily Erotic Tarot

The Judgement

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Judgement card indicates that you’ve had some sexual hang-ups in the past, but you’re working toward getting over them. This is a period of transition, and although you’re doing the work, you may not be getting the exact results you desire. Forgive yourself for past missteps in order to take a sexual step forward today. Being afraid to express your true erotic self can even effect other areas of your life, so getting beyond your sexual inhibitions translates into a happier overall existence.

Frog

Frog Rivet! Something in your life needs cleansing, and frog is here to help. Frog is traditionally associated with rain—that powerful force of Nature that can flood, nurture, heal, or drown.

This Weekend’s Love Horoscope: Light and Bright

Your love horoscope for the weekend of November 24-26


Just this week the Sun shimmied its way out of the depths of Scorpio and into something a little more fun and flirty — the Fire sign Sagittarius. While Sagittarius may not be a super sexy sign, this will be a perfect time for singles to mingle. You’ll have a greater sense of adventure and open-mindedness, so put yourself out there!

Sagittarius knows how to have a good time, but isn’t just another bro looking to party. It’s a progressive sign with a spiritual awareness and a philosophical understanding. This is the season of “woke bae” rising — the opportunity to be or meet an enlightened significant other who’s full of wisdom and intellect. So take advantage of any social gatherings you can this weekend! You never know when you’ll spark a connection with someone who shares your same worldview.

On Saturday, zippy Mercury (also in Sagittarius) will be making an exciting trine with spontaneous Uranus. This could offer you and your sweetie the energy to take a quick weekend trip! For singles, this is a chance to reinvigorate your social life — the more people you meet now, the better your chances of finding love!

The Good and Bad of Dating Your Same Sign

Explore the ins and outs of inner-sign dating


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This can be a tough match. You’re both hot-headed, want your way, and tend to blame the other person when things go wrong. On the other hand, you spark each other’s passionate nature, and will have lots of active fun together. Fighting fairly is the key to your success … as there will be fights! “Never go to bed angry” should be your mantra.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

The Bull is stubborn, with a one-track mind. If you’re on the same track, great! If not, you’ll both need to expand your comfort zones — not an easy task for either one of you. You’re both passionate about your own ideas and opinions, so if one of you is conservative and the other liberal, you’re in for trouble. Sports and sensual enjoyment can keep you together.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Twins never bore each other. In fact, there may be too much unpredictability in this match. One of you will have to become the “stable one” and cultivate a home life, or you may not stay together long enough or go deep enough emotionally to put down roots. At least you can talk through whatever comes up, and enjoy a diverse social life.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This is one of the best same-sign matches. You’re both nurturing and love to snuggle up at home. So what if you don’t go out much? The biggest drawback, once you learn to tolerate each other’s moods (and not take them personally!), is that your tendency to mother each other can smother the sexual spark. You make great parents, though.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

This is a volatile match! You both need a lot of attention, and tend to pout if you don’t get it — so you’ll need to trade off making the other person feel special. Passions run high, which is great for sex, but take care you don’t say or do something in the heat of a fight that fatally damages the relationship. Mutual respect is the key to this union.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

If you’re both dedicated to the higher goals of health and service, this could be a match made in heaven. Just don’t try to improve the other person or criticize their behavior — which kills the passion. Overanalyzing the relationship can also make it wither on the vine. Plant a garden or do yoga together and you’ll bring out the best in each other.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

This can be a lovely union — you’re both attuned to pleasing the other person and cultivating balance and fairness. The danger, though, is that you’ll stay too superficial — projecting a beautiful image of love while resentments seethe below the surface. You’ll have to be willing to rock the boat a bit so this match can come into its full potential.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Passion, danger, intrigue … two Scorpios have it all! Maybe too much so. Trust is the crucial ingredient that makes this match work. If one or both partners are suspicious or jealous, you’re in for a rocky ride. It’s essential to share your deepest feelings in this union, but don’t bonk the other person over the head with them, or you’ll spur resentment.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Here’s a fun match! You’ll be kayaking and motorcycling together to your hearts’ content. Your strong opinions can lead to spirited discussions, but you’re both okay with that. Real trouble looms when one of you wants a commitment and the other prefers to stay footloose. A higher spiritual purpose can keep you together.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You might not think this would be a great romantic match, since both of you are hard-headed realists. Yet that very practical nature lets you appreciate who the other person really is, devoid of illusions. You can be yourself in this relationship. Just don’t let your worldly ambitions or need for status take precedence over a nurturing home life.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Aquarians are very open-minded, and can tolerate (or even enjoy!) each other’s eccentricities. And, you make the best of friends. However, the emotional realm is not your forte — so you both may shy away from declaring your feelings and taking things into deeper waters. To cultivate passion, you’ll have to venture out of your comfort zone.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

You’re both dreamers — which works both for you and against you. Two Fish can float around endlessly in a lovely fantasy, never casting anchor into a secure reality. You tend to wear rose-colored glasses, and that means your sweetheart can do no wrong — which is great, unless that person has serious problems. Get a third party to handle your finances.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, November 25th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

With Mercury in your adventure sector these days, dear Aries, you’re more often than not letting your mind wander and wonder. Today, the right energy is available for detaching yourself just enough to enjoy a detox of sorts on a mental level – a mental detour can be most welcome now! A helpful conversation, invitation, or piece of news may be part of the picture. You’re in a great position to come up with exciting ideas now. You’re also communicating with added panache. Today is active for thinking outside the box regarding education, communications, travel, projects revolving around technology and new-thought topics, as well as for work and health matters. Branching out on a mental level can help you feel free and optimistic.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

This is an excellent time for exploring the depths of a topic or subject, dear Taurus, or for absorbing yourself in new thinking about an old problem. Inspiring conversations can happen in intimate settings. Something that is communicated or news coming in today can help you let go of a past matter and move forward in a positive direction. You feel detached just enough that you’re bringing more objectivity to a usually tricky or emotional topic, and you can break new ground as a result. You might even have the opportunity to rid yourself of a nagging problem or a secret. There is the ability to see right down to the core of a situation. It’s a great time to observe others and look for possible reasons for their behavior. The same type of analysis can be quite successful applied to yourself!

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

There can be a wonderful a meeting of the minds today, Gemini, or you might have a thinking or talking breakthrough with a partner or about a relationship. Open conversations or better communication may be just the ticket to move forward. Ideas that come to you now probably have quite a bit of merit. The freer you feel, the more likely you’ll welcome positive new energy into your life, so use the open spirit of the Mercury-Uranus energy today and find ways to let go of burdening attitudes or situations. Networking can lead to useful or pleasant discoveries. Aim to make changes on the fly rather than stick entirely to a schedule today.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

With Mercury in your work and health sector harmonizing with Uranus at the top of your solar chart, dear Cancer, you’re bringing fresh ideas to your work and your daily life. You’re seeing a way forward and have your eye on making improvements. You are primarily interested in making progress now, and if you can find ways to keep things fresh and non-routine, you’ll enjoy a greater feeling of freedom and optimism. Open your mind to new ideas and methods for best results today. There can be exciting information that fuels your optimism about health matters, or that inspires you to brush up your skills. The work or effort you’re putting in today engages your emotions.

Leo

Leo
Leo

This can be a strong day for advancing a project or coming up with progressive new ideas about your next step, dear Leo. You are anxious to move something forward, and you’re entertaining ideas or new methods for doing so. Creative projects or romantic relationships may receive a nice boost. There is progressive energy with you today that inspires you to look forward with more confidence. It can be a great time to show others that you care through granting them more freedom or offering your time to listen to them, brainstorm with them, or help guide them.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Today’s energies are fabulous for putting your worries behind you and focusing on what’s ahead of you, dear Virgo. You are feeling just enough emotional detachment to enjoy yourself without self-consciousness. There can be inventive solutions to home-related matters for some of you, or real conversations about making improvements, particularly with family, loved ones, or an intimate partner. You can enjoy sharing creative ideas and memories with people close to you, and there can be a focus on opening up the lines of communication, and even education, in the home environment. This may also be a time for exciting personal revelations that also have the effect of moving you forward or detaching you from staid situations.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

This is a good day for finding inventive ways to advance your personal interests and projects, dear Libra, or for enjoying others’ perspectives and putting them to good use. In fact, you can benefit from brainstorming tremendously right now. Unusual ideas or different perspectives lead to fabulous plans. Socializing and conversing is a breeze today. You are in the mood for something different or unique, finding it challenging doing the same old routine, and you may be pushing boundaries a little in your conversations as a result, perhaps to stir the pot and keep things exciting. This can have impressive effects. Petty problems may be seen as tiny hiccups in a much bigger plan.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

The Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, Scorpio, and the need for familiarity and comfort is strongly stimulated. Even so, the day favors new ideas and novel approaches. Information you uncover today can be helpful or a pleasant surprise. You could find that finances, health, or work matters move forward, or you feel more optimistic about the direction in which these things are heading. Follow your inner guide now, but keep your mind open to new perspectives for best results. Your ability to find innovative solutions to practical problems increases today. Being especially open and forthcoming with family can be rewarding now.

 

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

With Mercury in your sign in harmonious aspect to exciting Uranus in your creative sector, dear Sagittarius, you’re likely to feel quite free and courageous about expressing yourself in unique and spirited ways today. Your more unique qualities, particularly related to the mind, are emphasized and appreciated. People are attracted to your personal convictions. There is a high ability to express yourself in positive and even inspiring ways now. Open and honest conversations with others, particularly a partner, lover, or child, can be in focus. Looking ahead rather than dwelling on the past is your preference now and serves you well for the time being.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

A lot is going on under the hood in your life these days, dear Capricorn, with the Sun, Mercury, and Saturn in your privacy sector. Today, Mercury harmonizes with Uranus, opening you up just a little and encouraging you to reach out, particularly to family or those you hold dear, however. Family matters are in good form, and progressive ideas about how to make yourself feel secure can be easy to come by. The atmosphere is open and honest. Inner restlessness can sometimes lead us down the wrong path, but today, it may motivate you to make a positive change or to improve your life somehow. Trying something new can be refreshing, and it can also lead to fresh ideas.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

The Moon is in your sign all day, dear Aquarius, and it also harmonizes with Mercury, Uranus, and Saturn. You have a stronger need to feel connected with others and for your emotions to be validated, and nice channels are available for you to express yourself. You are magnetic today, particularly in your communications. Good ideas are flowing freely around you. There can be a wonderful feeling of being in sync with friends and a love interest. Look for ways to move forward, open up the lines of communication, and to put dysfunctional elements of your life behind you.

 

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

The Moon spends another full day in your privacy sector, Pisces, signaling an emotional need for more time to yourself so that you can recharge. Getting extra time to think and muse is especially helpful with a Mercury-Uranus aspect occurring now that stimulates creative, progressive thinking. With business, money, and your practical affairs, you’re finding it easier to identify the things that are working for you and the things you need to discard or improve. You’re in a good frame of mind to see where you can excel by taking a small risk or making a change. Information that comes in or ideas you generate pull you out of any thinking rut you may have been in. Communicating frankly and with transparency can be very rewarding now.

If You Were Born On Today, Saturday, November 25th

You are exceedingly charming–and some of that charm is quite kooky and endearing. You are a magnanimous person with a big heart. You’re fun-loving, yet you are success-oriented at the same time. People trust you. Your jovial disposition makes you a pleasure to be around. Broad-minded, you seek truths without fussing over the details. Facts don’t impress you as much as broader truths do. There is a spiritual side to you that is not immediately apparent. Famous people born today: Ricardo Montalban, John Larroquette, Amy Grant, Joe DiMaggio, Christina Applegate, John F. Kennedy Jr.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.

Something big is in the works regarding your love or social life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love and friendship this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money. Relationships are mutually beneficial and naturally equal, fair, and balanced during this period of your life. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing.

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year. You may, in fact, have a lot of work to do in relative solitude or you might often retreat to study, work, or think. You might be required to travel for business purposes. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You may be actively involved in teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Passions are stirred and you’re in a good position for connecting with others to accomplish your goals. There can be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing romance.

With the Mars-Pluto energy in your Solar Return, channeled positively, you could move mountains when it comes to pushing your projects ahead. If mishandled, however, you could be argumentative, stressed, and hell-bent on having your way! The bottom line is a tendency towards obsessive or compulsive behavior. Avoid taking extreme measures to make things happen your way, and avoid people who might be doing same. Deliberately trying to maneuver things in order to get the upper hand will be a lesson in frustration.

Developing existing businesses is highly favored this year. Long-term alliances can be made. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.

This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.

Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely this year, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. The year is good for enjoying wonderful social or love opportunities. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well. Useful contacts can be made during this period. Your love or social life grows and satisfies.

 

2017 is a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.

2018 will be a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is less active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract both things and people. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice – be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect.

 

Get A Jump On Tomorrow…..

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, November 26th, 2017

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

You’re entering a slightly less sociable phase early today, dear Aries. This phase is only two and a half days long when it’s natural to need to recharge your emotional batteries. It’s not the best time for visibility, but some level of withdrawal is necessary for busier days to come. Intensity, passion, and emotional attachment are more prominent themes in your love life with Venus transiting your intimacy sector these days, and today’s Venus-Chiron aspect gives you a boost. Attracting resources from outside sources comes more easily. It’s an excellent time to work out money problems or other issues of sharing with a partner. It’s also great for repairing relationship woes, if necessary, or of coming to a better understanding of your relationship situation. You also have great influences with you for making sound, intelligent plans and mapping out a creative project, publishing effort, or educational plan.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

Ideally in the last couple of days, you have become clearer about what is expected of you, and what you can expect from yourself, dear Taurus. Now, it’s time to absorb what you’ve learned but also to release some of the pressure. You’re in a great position to socialize or network. Venus has been moving through your partnership sector, warming up close relationships or brings pleasant people into your experience. Today is excellent for naturally gaining respect without having to prove yourself. You are especially relatable, and your ability to connect with others enhanced further.

Gemini

 

Gemini
Gemini

With the Moon moving into your public sector early today, Gemini, it’s that time of the month when you should be on your best behavior. It’s also time to take care of business, attend to professional priorities, and keep your cool (unless you want something private to come to light). A Saturn-Pallas aspect today suggests excellent opportunities to clarify a long-term goal, lay down plans, and collaborate. Teamwork is favored, particularly if you’re mapping out future projects and plans or working on a design. Today also brings warm energy for putting faith in and learning from someone. You can be especially productive with work or health pursuits. You are working smarter, not harder now.

Cancer

 

Cancer
Cancer

This can be a time when attractions and desires are sudden, dear Cancer, but it’s experimental and sudden attractions don’t necessarily settle in for the long term. Rebelliousness or impulsiveness are tendencies now if you’re feeling stressed. Despite some fickleness, overall it’s a good — even excellent — day for strengthening a love bond. Venus in your romance sector is supported by Chiron today, helping you to open up your heart courageously. A relationship can bump up to a new level today.

 

Leo

 

Leo
Leo

You value familiarity in love with Venus in your sector of home and family these days, dear Leo, and you can sometimes feel a little off center if schedules change or plans are disrupted. Today, expect the unexpected and aim to be flexible. You may be unsure whether you want to play it safe or go out on a limb. Even so, bringing peace, harmony, and beauty to your home environment can be a compelling need, and you should find it easier to do so today. It’s also a time for healing and better understanding your feelings and affections.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

You can learn a lot about your relationships today, dear Virgo, and also about your own needs, wants, and desires. Read too much or dig too deeply and you will only get yourself into ambiguous territory, however. This can be revealing if you’re in the right frame of mind, but perhaps a little disruptive if you’re avoiding deeper issues. These days, verbal rapport and open lines of communication are especially vital to engage your heart. Today is, in fact, strong for showing support of important people in your life, particularly verbally. It can also be a good time for making a decision about finances or making significant purchases. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you see great value in the exchange of ideas.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

You might experience a compelling desire to spend on clothes, furniture, and entertainment, or anything that makes you feel comfortable, secure, and pampered today, dear Libra. You experience this more often with Venus in your solar second house, and today it’s unusually active. Of course, it’s important to consider the future if making significant outlays, as comfort in the present may not be worth longer-term feeling of insecurity or worry over resources. If you move past your fears and look within, you can take fuller advantage of a lovely Venus-Chiron aspect that rounds everything out quite nicely. This is a time for opening your heart and putting fears behind you. Others may be putting faith in you under this influence, and they especially appreciate your more unusual and unique qualities. This is also a good time for work or practically-oriented relationships.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

The Moon moves into your romance and creativity sector, dear Scorpio, and you have a stronger sense of fun today. There can be some minor struggles with seemingly at odds needs for closeness and intimacy and your desire for independence which can throw others for a loop. This energy can also be felt through desires for unusual things, activities, and pleasures that are different or reflect your inner unrest and need for change. Insecurities are likely to dissipate dramatically once you get in touch with your heart and a Venus-Chiron aspect active today helps you along. You are more courageous in love and putting your faith in someone tends to encourage them to do right by you. You are also in great shape for making progress on your practical affairs, particularly regarding building plans and designs.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

This is a good time for opening up to someone special, dear Sagittarius. It doesn’t have to be a commitment or a statement if you’re not ready to make one; it can simply be current feelings or stories about the past. An epiphany of sorts along romantic and creative lines related to private matters of the heart is likely to happen. You may wrestle with whether to get close or to keep a bit of distance with someone, but it’s a good time to be honest with yourself about how you feel. This can also be an excellent time for firming up plans and working diligently on a pet project. You have a unique sense of what others want.

 

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

While you’ve been quite delighted with comfortable activities in the past couple of days, Capricorn, you’re more inclined to reach out and communicate today. There can be some feelings of unrest experienced now, likely due to an unacknowledged need for a small change of pace in your relationships or patterns of relating. However, divine energy is with you now for bonding and enjoying good company. You might derive particular pleasure and satisfaction from groups of like-minded individuals, or with friends and associates. There can be healing powers to your words. Opening up to warm feelings brings rewards now. Also today, Saturn forms a harmonious aspect with Pallas, and you’re in an excellent position to make practical and intelligent plans or designs, mainly related to your home and family life. Others appreciate your patience and wisdom now.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Early today, the Moon leaves your sign, and this tends to take emotional pressure off, Aquarius. Even so, you remain a little more sensitive than usual today. Try not to speak too soon of unrest, as you may only need a change of pace. You also benefit from a Venus-Chiron aspect that generates good energy for understanding a business or financial matter or the motives of a person you work with or for. It’s important to be open to learning from and through others and to share your own expertise as well for best results. Social opportunities can come through business or career connections. Some of you could enjoy a pay increase.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

The Moon enters your sign very early today, and this brings your emotions to the surface, Pisces. You could have a feeling of urgency when it comes to filling your emotional needs. Look for inspiration from a loved one, as someone could awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. You fare best when you are reaching out beyond your usual bounds these days, and it makes sense for you to aim to deal with fears of change so that you can move past them. Insecurities are understood and managed well now. This is a good time for personal charm and attractiveness. You are especially likable and relatable today.

 

 

 

Tarot Card of the Day

Ten of Wands


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.

Tarot Love Card of the Day

The Emperor


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Emperor card has selected you to let you know that you sow seeds of better things and more fulfilling times ahead. Give yourself permission to reach out for more, especially if you are dissatisfied. You create a solid foundation, built on a sense of higher purpose. If your current relationship suffers from stress, today let tender actions reveal what you may be unable to put into words. Rebuild, from the ground up.

Erotic Tarot Card of the Day

The Pope


The Pope represents pure masculine energy, and even if you’re female you’re going to be identifying more with your male counterparts today. The Pope shows you that coming to terms with past mistakes and taking responsibility for them in the present eases sexual tension, so let go of the past to free yourself from your inhibitions. You actually have quite the skill set when it comes to making sexual moves, but waiting until the time is right before taking the plunge can be a real turn-on. Let the anticipation build until you can’t take it anymore!

Psychic Tip of the Day

TWO DREAMING

This is a great day for the two of you to begin again. Discuss your plans for the year ahead and grow together as you plan your growth. Are you excited about the future?

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

The Magus



The Magus is the physical embodiment of decisive action based upon knowledge and aimed squarely at specific goals. Thoroughly Yang by nature and firmly set in the material world, he none-the-less has a powerful spiritual connection as well. His knowledge, wisdom and skill are all encompassing. He is complete. His power as a creator is unmatched on our earthly plane. He is self-aware and unafraid to act. His enormous strength gives him the freedom to act as he chooses. However, responsibility comes with that freedom. Because he is not bound to the restraints of others he must choose how to act. The question that always lies before him is should he act morally, or forsake ethics for personal gain.

As a daily card, The Magus suggest you currently possess a tremendous power and freedom to move your life in any direction you choose. In short, you can make things happen. Your true challenge at the moment is to move forward without trampling the dreams of others. Fortunately your moral fiber is strong as well, and will guide you down the right path.

Your Animal Spirit for Today

Wolf

Wolf can survive either as a loner or as part of a pack, and he howls to remind you that you have to balance the needs of others with the needs of the self. If you’re giving yourself away to your own detriment, you are living in opposition to Wolf medicine. Return to balance—and begin feeding your emotions, your mind, and your body.

 

Your Karmic Number for Saturday,

You are a natural leader today. People will look to you to clear a path for them to follow. You may be asked to take the reins of a project or situation because of your ability to listen and provide clear communication. Don’t be shy or doubt your abilities – you have unique talent that only your own self-doubt can hide. Abundance flows to you when you step into the role of leading others. If you aren’t offered an opportunity, look for one as a volunteer or even start writing a blog.

Your Earth Sky News for Nov. 25th: Orion the Hunter now easy to view

 

Tonight, watch for Orion the Hunter – perhaps the easiest-to-identify of all constellations – rising at mid-evening. It’s around late November and early December that people begin to notice Orion in the evening sky, and to comment on it. Orion will climb over your eastern horizon by around 9 p.m. tonight. You can find this constellation and watch it for months to come.

The most noticeable part of Orion is the pattern called Orion’s Belt: three medium-bright stars in a short, straight row. As seen from mid-northern latitudes, Orion appears to be lying on his side – with his Belt stars pointing upward – when he first ascends into our eastern sky in mid-evening at this time of year. Orion’s two brightest stars — Betelgeuse and Rigel — shine on opposite sides of the Belt.

This shift in Orion’s location is due to Earth’s movement in orbit around the sun. As we move around the sun, our perspective on the stars surrounding us shifts. At the same hour daily, all the stars in the eastern half of sky climb up a bit higher, whereas all the stars in the western half of sky sink a bit closer to the western horizon.

Are you familiar with the W- or M-shaped constellation Cassiopeia the Queen? Or Polaris, the North Star? As Orion rises in the east this evening, look for Cassiopeia to soar to her highest point for the night, above Polaris in the northern sky.

 

Bottom line: The famous constellation Orion the Hunter is rising at mid-evening in late November and early December.

The Witches Digest for Monday, November 20

(Daily Horoscopes & Divination)

Your Weekly Karmic Forecast: November 19 – 24, 2017

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 19 – 24, 2017

11/19 ~ Mars (lower will) ~square~ Pluto (Higher will):

This is a test of what you are made of, on the deepest core level, and will require surrender as well as focus. This energy challenges you to evolve and will make you want to push through all obstacles but you must be careful not to be so aggressive that you are stepping on anyone to get where you’re going. This is a potent energy that can facilitate major transformation in your life if you know who you are, what you want and what you are willing to sacrifice to get there – that includes parts of your Self that may need to shift to be more effective. This energy can bring power struggles, within or without, so be mindful because this energy is affecting everyone at this time. This is the time to tie up any loose ends if you are close to beginning anew. If you do not finish what you already have in the works, it may get in the way of things you want to do in the future. It is time to align your true inner power with balanced outer actions & choices.

11/21 ~ Venus (relationships) ~sextile~ Pluto (transformation):

This energy deepens all emotions and strengthens bonds & attachments. Friendships & love relationships become much deeper and, sometimes more intense, not to mention any physical (sexual) experience. Being fake or superficial is never possible when Pluto is involved, and because Venus is involved, we’re talking relationships or how you relate in general, so if you are needing to dig a little deeper with someone, you are supported. This energy can facilitate positive transformation in your relationships, partnerships or collaborations. It will give you added power to help you change what needs changing or at least get it on the table for deeper discussion or a clearing conversation. Your emotional intensity may be at an unusually high level, so be sure to surround yourself with people who love you unconditionally or try to be alone and just reflect on what you’re feeling.

11/25 ~ Mercury (voice) ~trine~ Uranus (individuality):

This activation gives you access to your Higher Mind and opens the way for new, deeper insights that can guide & direct you at this time. Business as usual will not work, it’s time to open up to the unusual, do something different, look at things from another angle and watch the ah-ha’s start pouring in. Your intuition will be firing on all cylinders, giving you access to unprecedented clarity. While your thinking may lack discipline, your ability to access solutions to any recent (or long-standing) challenges will be off the charts. This energy will not be contained, even though it is generally all mental, you really will have a hard time keeping up with the ideas, thoughts, concepts & intuitions that come to you under this influence so try to take notes that you can refer to later when the grounding will be necessary. Pay attention to the messages that come through/from others as well since you never know how the Universe will show up. This alone is an indication that whatever your consciousness may not have been previously ready to assimilate or process is awakening now to that which is just for you!

Cosmic Weather Horoscope for the Week of November 20th

Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

Wednesday 22nd November:

Something Magic This Way Comes…

Neptune turns direct today in fishy Pisces, and something shifts in our dreams. We’re drawing closer and closer to a time filled with deeply magical potential.

Jupiter and Neptune both rule the mysterious sign of Pisces, a slippery sign that somehow moves between sacrifice and bliss, charity and extravagance, victim-hood and philanthropy.

Neptune and Jupiter both rule religious experiences and beliefs. We can always widen this out to include faith in a philosophy of life (Jupiter) and an attraction to hidden worlds, dreams and visions (Neptune).

Jupiter in Scorpio is now flowing beautifully with Neptune in a trine aspect. Together they release all sorts of smoky, translucent, ethereal things into the atmosphere, and work with delicacy and beauty on a creative, musical, and spiritual level. Yet when channelled into materialism, this pair are prone to symbolise fat, oily bubbles of delusional financial greed, bubbles that will inevitably burst. Here comes the snake oil salesman and the guru with feet of clay.

There’ll be more to say about Jupiter and Neptune’s partnership, for it’s one of astrology’s themes for 2018. If it touches your own natal horoscope, it’s something bewitching to work with this November, and during the year ahead.

This magical partnership is around until September 2018.

It will be exact on 3rd December at 11 degrees
25th May 2018 at 16 degrees
19th August at 15 degrees.

So, as you can probably tell, the season of the witch has escaped from its flimsy, contemporary Halloween container. To celebrate, here’s a delightfully quirky vintage ghost-hunting TV documentary. It stars the inimitable Dame Margaret Rutherford, her husband, and a famous society clairvoyant. It’s called ‘The Stately Ghosts of England’ (1965):

 

Your Weekly Love Horoscopes for November 20th

by Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

From the Astrology Room

With the sun moving into debonair Sagittarius, we can all expect some exciting loving. Although we will still be graced with normality, we may wonder, what is all this passion about?

But ironically, the great news is, that we can become truly aware of acting out those passions, rather than simply imagining them.

 

ARIES

Things seem so inconsistent right now. Sometimes people love you, sometimes they don’t, and if you don’t feel special this week, then you’re going to run away and have an adventure all alone. But remember that happiness is a bit like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you. But if you turn your attention to other things, it comes and softly sits on your shoulder.

 

TAURUS

It’s entirely understandable that you feel like you’re being pushed hard by a few irritating people. In fact all the anger is welling up inside you, perhaps generated by low self-esteem?  Luckily, by the end of the week, you can drop the self-sabotage and start to be nice to yourself. Maybe even realise you are as loveable as anyone else?

 

GEMINI

You know that you have to be more accepting, more understanding and be able to give as much as you receive. But with the sun moving int your opposite sign this week, you will also experience a burst of vitality. You’re coming alive, no longer armed with a set of conditions about how love should be. Instead, at last you can engage in the boundless, abundant thing that love is.

 

CANCER

Don’t make assumptions about how your partner feels, or what an admirer wants. Whether you’re newly in love, or a long-term couple, nothing is cast in stone.  But if you don’t think before you act, then thoughtless words will probably be the outcome. Instead, maintain a balance, especially now the pendulum is swinging in your favour.

 

LEO

It’s time to be more serious and reflect on what exactly your reality of love is? Does it have to be shown through action or deeds, does it have to be spoken or just felt? There may be a few ups and downs, broken promises, and indecision this week, but it’s time to adjust to your true perception of love and welcome it into your world.

 

VIRGO

Take the plunge into passionate loving. This week, the cosmic line-up confirms your true needs, reveals your wilder dreams, but most importantly give you the chance to either start all over again with the one you love, or throw yourself into a passionate embrace with someone new.

 

LIBRA

We often think we ‘fall’ for someone who represents everything that we are not. ‘They’re my opposite, that’s why we get on like a house on fire!’ Yet this week, I think you’re beginning to realise that the qualities of your lover or those you look for in a partner, are part of who you are.  Enjoy being attracted to yourself.

 

SCORPIO

What you’re feeling this week, is for once very good about yourself. This in turn, is a sign to partners or admirers that you’re in touch with your deepest desires. But a run of bad feeling between you and someone special needs to be dissolved, so let off a little steam by all means, then see what you need to change in your emotional armoury.

 

SAGITTARIUS

Honesty can sometimes get us into more trouble than we bargained for. And this week, it does seem that every time you open your mouth, whether to say sweet nothings or to suggest some useful changes, all you get back is defensive reactions. In fact, if you can ‘do,’ rather than ‘say,’ the challenging energy can be put to more physical delights..

 

CAPRICORN

This week’s planetary line-up gives you a sudden urge to travel, or just to change your lifestyle. And even though you won’t tolerate anyone else’s opinion, truths have to be told. If it all seems odd, it will create long-term joy rather than long-term pain, leading you to fantastic changes in the months to come.

 

AQUARIUS

You’ve become quite restless and bored with your routine existence. So if you’re not experiencing the light-hearted, fun-loving spontaneous side of love this week, then be golly you’re going to do something about it. The sun’s influence may put a spring in your step, so if you’re in one of those extrovert moods, then just be daring, it’s your right.

 

PISCES

This week, if single, there are some dark horses out there who suddenly become highly desirable. Attached, you wish your partner would take you on a surprise trip away. You change your look, but will they notice? You resolve to get on with your own career, but will they notice? Notice if they notice. Feel the faith you have in yourself, feel it and most of all, act upon it now.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, November 20th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From the Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
The struggles of your normal routine start to vanish and you slowly but surely start to realise you are in control of your life. Don’t accept first offers financially. There are better deals to be done with a little investigation. .

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
You are finally comfortable with a decision you made last month, but have not really had chance to put into action. Friends could turn into lovers for some of your sign. You’re beginning to realise what you need to be happy.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
You enter the next few days with a feeling of excitement and it’s not for nothing. Shock announcements and surprise visits make for a week which sees you entering a better phase of your life.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
If you had all the time and money in the world, what would you do Cancer? Aspects tell me you can do it all with a little planning and foresight. Confidence is the key to impressing important faces.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
When you’re true to who you are, amazing things will happen Leo. You may not realise it, but you hold the power to open the doors which were shut to you this time last month.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
One way to get the most out of your current situation, is to look upon it as an adventure. You can do this sooner rather than later, if you work on ignoring those who only ever bring negativity to your heart and mind.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
As soon as you start to pursue your dreams, your life wakes up and everything has a meaning. Today Neptune gives you the power to excel and to find the confidence which I see was lacking earlier this month.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Life is a rollercoaster. Enjoy the ride, but don’t forget to buckle up, as the coming days are sure to prove memorable, if a little bumpy along the way. An old friendship is given the chance to be rekindled.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Mars makes it hard for you not to accuse close ones of things they may not have done. Know how far is too far to go, or you could end up losing a friendship you only just got back. Geminis link to a better social life.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
A touch of fame beckons within your career and you begin to feel more confident about the support of those close to you. This is good day to do your sums and figures. You may discover something is in your reach.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
So how do you get through the very sensitive few days you’ve had? Believe and act as if it is impossible for you not to succeed. Romance is well starred and you finally get back your self-confidence.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
There’s someone you need to say thank you to and to show appreciation for, but Mars is stopping you from finding the right words. Come on, fight back and show you can be the bigger person.

If You Were Born Today, November 20th

The year ahead is one of new beginnings as you feel you’re beginning a new chapter of your life. It’s good for enjoying new opportunities, experiences, and perspectives, as well as wonderful social or love opportunities. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well. Useful contacts can be made during this period. Your love or social life comes alive this year.

You are a dedicated, family-loving person who is loyal to loved ones. Your personality is highly intuitive and receptive, and the quiet strength that sits just under the surface forms some of your considerable charm. Desirous and passionate, you sometimes over-indulge in the pleasures of life. Because you value partnership so strongly, you must guard against smothering your loved ones. There is a fine line for you between caring and possessiveness. Your strong character is apt to propel you into a leadership position in your career. If so, you are what might be considered a benevolent leader, as you are very big-hearted.

Famous people born today: Bo Derek, Richard Dawson, Gene Tierney, Robert F. Kennedy, Joe Walsh, Edwin Hubble.

Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, November 20th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From the Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
With the Sun behind you at the moment, every day holds the possibility of a miracle. This is the time to have another try at the things that didn’t work out earlier in the year. New work avenues beckon via e mails.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Surround yourself with positive people only, Taurus. You have allowed yourself to be emotionally blackmailed by those who don’t have your best interests at heart. With the help of Mars, know where to draw the line.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Why are you so worried about how things look to others. Shouldn’t how you feel be more important? After all, you are the one who has to live your life and with the decisions you make.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Your time is limited this week, so don’t waste it doing things which can’t bring results. It’s time to tie up those loose ends you’ve left for yourself. New career openings beckon and could see many of you crabs changing vocation.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
You’re ready and willing to put down some roots, but you don’t seem sure who will support you through this. Go to those who are directly involved, or you may make them think you are not capable.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
There’s an immature feel to your chart, which could see you saying and doing all manner of things you may come to regret. Make a mental note of how far is too far to go, or you could end up with a lot of apologising to do.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
The less you say about other people’s lives this week, the better. You see Libra, there is a secretive feel to the stars, which will see many of the signs wanting to keep their private life private.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
You’ve got to have a dream Scorpio and you’ve got to grab it and never let go. Your ruling planet Mars helps you sweet talk anyone into anything. Use this opportunity well. Ring now to hear why this is the perfect time to negotiate home circumstances and affairs.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Try not to accuse people of things they may not have done. Mercury is preventing your judgement from being at its best my friend. Stick to plans today, as those around you are relying on you more than you may realise.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Arrange to see old friends who can give you the confidence boost I know you’re in need of. You’ve found it hard to have faith in your own ideas and opinions recently, but they’re the ones who can give it back to you.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
The most effective way to do things, is to actually do them. A better relationship with a member of family evolves as you all agree to meet each other half way. Patience with paperwork is essential for its successful completion.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
You are the CEO of your life. Don’t allow others to take control, or you will regret it for a very long time to come. Be ready to say yes to impromptu plans tonight. It can and will make your life a more interesting place to be.

Tarot Card of the Day

Seven of Coins


November 20, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Seven of this suit is typically a paean to the humble laborer who is willing to show up every day and sweat in the sun for next season’s bounty. The traditional concept is cultivation, with an attitude that slow and steady wins the race, with faith in nature’s assistance. The protagonist of this card doesn’t make excuses, isn’t whimsical or moody, but is dedicated and sees the job through. Of course, it’s no good to count your chickens before they hatch, but there’s no question that the person who is vigilant over a project is more likely to get the desired result.

Someone who works with nature, cooperating with her ways, will waste less energy and time than the person who works against her. As a side meaning, we sometimes see this normally humble farmer in a moment of frenzy, betting the crop on a roll of the dice. This represents a moment of dementia, addiction or desperation which hopefully will not last long enough for the farmer to lose everything!

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.

Earth Sky News for Monday, November 20th: Watch for the moon and Saturn

Tonight – November 20, 2017 – finds the slender lunar crescent pairing up with the planet Saturn after sunset. As dusk gives way to darkness, look in the southwest sky, and rather close to the sunset point on the horizon, for the lovely celestial couple, the moon and Saturn. Start your search no later than an hour or so after sundown. These two worlds will follow the sun beneath the horizon at or around nightfall.

You might – or might not – see the planet Mercury below the moon and Saturn tonight. Mercury is rather difficult to catch from northerly latitudes, but is easier to spot from the Southern Hemisphere. Several people did catch Mercury Sunday evening, near the very young moon, and sent us photos.

Click here for recommended almanacs; they can provide the setting times for the sun, moon, Saturn and Mercury in your sky.

Our sky charts above and below are for mid-northern North American latitudes, where the waxing crescent moon and Saturn appear especially close together after sunset on November 20, 2017. From the world’s Eastern Hemisphere – Europe, Africa, Asia, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand – tonight’s moon appears more to the west of Saturn (and closer to the planet Mercury). See the sky chart below.

On the same date in the Eastern Hemisphere, the moon is more offset to the west of Saturn (and closer to Mercury) than it is in North America. Moreover, the farther east you are in the Eastern Hemisphere (far-eastern Asia, Australia and New Zealand), the more the moon is offset toward the previous date on the sky chart. For instance, from far-eastern Asia, Australia and New Zealand on November 20. 2017, the moon appears closer to Mercury than to Saturn as darkness falls on November 20.

Of course, when we say the moon is close to Saturn or Mercury, we’re really saying that the moon resides close to Saturn or Mercury on the sky’s dome. The moon is actually nowhere close to these planets in space. Tonight’s moon is only around 252,000 miles (406,000 km) distant from Earth. But Saturn and Mercury lie much father away, at about 4,000 and 400 times the moon’s distance from Earth, respectively.

Click here to find out the moon’s present distance from Earth and click here to find out the present distance of Saturn and Mercury from Earth in astronomical units (AU). One astronomical unit = Earth/sun distance.

Day by day, watch for Saturn to slowly but surely sink downward and closer to Mercury on the sky’s dome. Look for these two worlds to be in conjunction (near the same line of sight) on November 28, 2017.

Bottom line: This evening after sunset – November 20, 2017 – look for the moon and Saturn in the southwest sky. You might – or might not – spot Mercury beneath the moon and Saturn.

The Witches Digest for Friday, November 17th (Daily Horoscopes & Divination)

The Witches Digest for Friday, November 17th

(Daily Horoscopes & Divination)

New Moon Breakthrough

This week with its New Moon is an opportunity for a significant personal breakthrough. Consider now specifically what you would like to shift and what your ideal outcome looks like. Continue reading for suggestions of how to tap into the energies for beneficial breakthroughs and how to focus your mind for optimal results.

With so much going on in your external world, it’s easy to lose sight of your personal goals and your larger soul mission for being alive now. It’s essential, however, to regularly come back to yourself and refocus your energies.

New Moon Opportunity

This is especially true now during the New Moon opportunity window. What’s needed is to be present to the opportunity for breakthroughs, and focus on what you want to create on a very personal level. As mentioned, do this with specifics in mind – rather than intending you have a great job or happy relationship, intend the specifics of what it looks like and feels like. And, of course, visualize yourself in the picture.

Intend now that you will rise above the tendency to get so caught up in outer world dramas and the annual holiday rush that you neglect your inner self and personal path.

You are not meant to be living on automatic, simply going from one experience to the next. Even though it’s in your conditioning to live on the surface – letting circumstances carry you to the next situation – this is not your authentic way of relating to this life experience. To be authentic, you must strive to be present to each moment and situation. This means being consciously at choice and considering the ramifications of choices before making them.

The more that you can do this, the greater your abundance and the happier you will be.

Mercury Retrograde Shadow

Since we now sit in the beginning of the Mercury Retrograde shadow phase, factor into your plans the need to take care of things like technology backups and contract signing ahead of the actual retrograde. Travel plans you make now may go more smoothly than if you wait to book during the Mercury Retrograde December 2/3-22.

Letting Go to Be Free

This Scorpio New Moon is a perfect time for renewal, reflection, regeneration, and revitalization. The energies also support being able to put a magnifying glass on thorny issues that you haven’t been able to resolve. This can help you to see what you didn’t see before. Also, importantly, it can help you in accessing buried feelings that need to come to the surface before breakthroughs occur. As you let go of these old energies and feelings, you can be free.

During internal process on your own and with others you trust to work with you on the deeper levels, you can take a very big leap in these moments.   

DNA Akashic Records

Keep in mind that many of the seemingly immovable obstacles have roots in the past. These could be ancestral, your early life, or even past lives. These can be accessed and addressed within your DNA akashic records. A general energy guideline for accessing the deep buried roots is this: you must have on some level invited the deeper look, you are ready, and the timing is right.

Another part of the New Moon energy opportunity is having flashes of helpful insight about your current life and path ahead. You also may discover that a doorway opens for meeting new people, creating new business partnerships, and having closure with a loved one on the other side. I mention this here because already this month in my 1-1 DNA sessions, clients are receiving messages from departed loved ones – helping with understanding and an ability to let go of hurts and misunderstandings. This alone can be one of the most powerful breakthroughs right now.

Wherever you are in your process now, give yourself the gift of space and presence during this New Moon gateway. Invite a knowing of how you can utilize it in the highest way. Ask your Higher Self to give you clues and also help you in the dream state over the next few days – bringing to your conscious awareness what you need to know.

Trust that in the truest sense, you are never really stuck or blocked. It can feel like that with some issues, yet that’s because you haven’t yet accessed the deepest roots that need to come to light. Know that this is a process, and in the divine orchestration of things, you will see what’s hidden so you can address it and be free.

New Moon in Scorpio: Claim Your Power

Read your sign’s horoscope for the New Moon in Scorpio now


The New Moon in smoldering Scorpio on November 18 sets a dramatic stage for an epic battle between resistance and metamorphosis. The struggle is real, as co-stars (and co-ruling planets of Scorpio) Mars and Pluto square off at the start of this new lunar cycle, intensifying feelings, provoking battles, and triggering ultimatums on global and personal fronts. Mystery and magic hang intoxicatingly heavy in the air at this New Moon, but suspicion, jealousy, and revenge are lurking in the shadows.

Four planets conspiring in the watery realms of Scorpio leave little solid ground to stand on now, prompting the fainthearted to run for the hills. But thanks to a trine from intuitive Chiron in Pisces, this transformational lunation offers limitless potential for healing and growth. The trick is to stop resisting change and instead consciously choose to evolve. The process isn’t pretty, but the possibilities are endless if compassion wins out over fear: painful secrets acknowledged, hearts softened, relationships repaired, trust rebuilt, and faith in humanity restored.

Resist at your own risk

The current planetary intensity can be both empowering and overwhelming — and it’s only human to consider hiding or escaping as a viable option if you hope to avoid drama or sidestep emotional displays. The problem is you can only run for so long, and feelings have a way of catching up with you when you least expect it. Your heart is traveling the seas of seduction and subjectivity now, and you can either decide to go with the flow or you can refuse to swim. But one thing is certain: denial and repression only amplify the power of your buried truth. Whatever is hidden may remain hidden, but secrecy comes with a cost. Isolation keeps you safe but not satisfied. Walls do not let love in.

The call of the phoenix

Shining the light of truth into the dark corners of your subconscious can act as a cathartic emotional detoxification, especially if you acquire awareness and forgiveness on this journey into your soul. Go deep-diving in uncharted waters, exploring all the caves and crevices; face the monsters and angels you encounter with courage and curiosity. Embrace your frailties, fears, and frustrations as you let your feelings wash over you, and give yourself permission and the privacy to cry or scream until you run dry. Confronting your pain opens the doorway to true healing. At the risk of mixing elemental metaphors, you can’t rise from the ashes without a fire.

Remember to be kind to yourself and others, especially when experiencing emotional extremes. Moods are temporary, but your actions and words are permanent. Keep your lifejacket on near this New Moon as a tidal wave of self-analysis can send you down a detour of obsession or self-pity if you forget that your desired destination is personal evolution. The secret is knowing when it’s time to return to the rational realms. Spiritual exploration can be life-altering, but only if you utilize what you learn. Here is a list of potential ideas to get you started on your Scorpio New Moon transformation. Pick one or more to use for your meditation focus or daily affirmation. Make your own list as an exercise to discover what you want to change in your world. Manifestation begins in the mind.

11 New Moon transformations:

– Transform apathy into empathy
– Transform ignorance into knowledge
– Transform anger into ambition
– Transform fear into curiosity
– Transform greed into generosity
– Transform vulnerability into strength
– Transform hate into love
– Transform pain into compassion
– Transform sadness into gratitude
– Transform regret into forgiveness
– Transform dreams into action

Your New Moon in Scorpio Horoscopes

By Tarot.com Staff

This passionate Scorpio New Moon offers a not-so-gentle push toward self-examination and personal regeneration. Plant your seeds of intention provided below and then commit every cell of your being to the process of change. Read your sign’s horoscope now:

Aries Horoscope (March 21 – April 19)

The pull of freedom tugs at you like a kite in the wind at this New Moon, but your heart can’t deny the importance of relationships to your current happiness. You might use anger as a weapon to keep others at a distance, and perhaps it is safer to stay out of the path of your wrath now. Unfortunately, breathing fire at anyone who cares enough to stick around to see if they can help is a self-sabotaging strategy. Stop allowing your fear of intimacy and all its perceived trappings to stand in the way of more meaningful connections. Revealing a secret or a dream enables you to test the emotional waters without getting too wet. Your seeds to plant: vulnerability and compassion

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 – May 20)

It may seem as if the feelings of others are hijacking your plans for the future, but the truth is someone is likely acting as a reflection of you now. You are the first to admit you are not a big fan of swimming in the emotional deep end, especially when a crowd is watching. At this New Moon in Scorpio, drop your stoicism and ask for help if you need it. You don’t have to do anything scary on your own when you have a solid support system in place. Resistance is a waste of energy when there is so much positive change waiting for your embrace. Your seeds to plant: trust and faith

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – June 20)

Asking a simple question seems like a harrowing challenge around this New Moon as drama simmers just below the surface. You want nothing more than to dance around the tension and keep everyone laughing, but someone may push you over the edge if you remain unwilling to examine your feelings. Reassess your current rituals, routines, and risks to discover where improvements need to be made. Your work is your saving grace as it brings stability and structure to your world. Your seed to plant: healthy patterns

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – July 22)

You are the most content when you can wear your heart on your sleeve without any hesitation. Demonstrating your affection in a myriad of ways brings you oodles of personal joy at this New Moon in Scorpio. Serenade a lover, paint your feelings, or write a poem for a friend. Expressing your feelings is so much fun you might not notice if you cross the line dividing reality and illusion. Your willingness to show up for others is beautiful, but make sure you feed your insatiable craving for spontaneity and adventure too. Your seed to plant: creative courage

Leo Horoscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

No one performs better than you in front of an audience, leaving the crowd chanting for more. But your star power feels disappointingly too weak to engage in the complex emotional drama of this New Moon, and you need to return to your roots for a regenerative boost. Set aside your infamous pride and dig deep to uncover your true feelings. Opening old wounds is easier to do in the company of someone who knows you well. Reveal what is hidden to find the prescription to your future happiness. Your seed to plant: emotional authenticity

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You feel slightly trapped by everyone’s incessant need to talk about their feelings around this New Moon. You’re clearly unhappy with the emotional noise infiltrating your bandwidth and postponing your productivity. You can run from the intensity, but you can’t hide from your own heart. If you delay that relationship conversation now, you might sadly regret it later. Stop complaining about the irrational logistics of love and listen carefully when others speak their truth. Mastering the fine art of negotiation and compromise is key to creating partnerships that last. Your seed to plant: consistent communication

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Your natural admiration for aesthetics often crosses over into the beauty you see in others. Your affinity for peace leaves you feeling overwhelmed in times of change, and you tend to be uncomfortable with any emotional messiness, especially if it involves you. You may try to deflect the painful issues by focusing on material possessions or financial gains, but money can’t buy you love or heal your heart. Look in the mirror of your relationships to see where you lost your way. Your confidence rebounds when you align your actions with your intentions. Your seed to plant: own your feelings

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

You are tapping into a vast pool of emotional energy at this New Moon in your sign, inspiring you to dance with all the colors in a wide spectrum of possibilities. Your intuition is plugged into a cosmic connection and your insights are otherworldly as you strive to create a personal masterpiece. A complete metamorphosis is occurring, but you must keep learning and growing during the process. Resisting change is natural with your Fixed nature but you will only impede your destiny. This kind of rebirthing takes time, but the beautiful butterfly you will become requires trusting the process. Your seed to plant: personal evolution

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

You might try to convince anyone who will listen that emotions are overrated and it’s actions that really count. Your strategy is to brush off any pain or regret with laughter and a philosophical shrug. But burying your feelings or cavalierly tossing your hopes aside will only cause wounds to fester below the surface now. Explore your personal history and search your dreams for clues to your pain. Reflective solitude is key to learning the lessons of your past, but practicing compassion opens the doorway to healing your heart. Your seeds to plant: kindness and forgiveness

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Your spiritual foundation is a source of strength near this New Moon as you re-examine your place in the community. There is a practical purpose to your soul-searching as you ask yourself some difficult questions. What compensation do you receive from others versus the goods you supply in return? Does it feel like an energetically fair and equitable exchange? Whether you end up renegotiating an arrangement or renewing it without any fuss can only be answered with honest dialogue and serious consideration. Power struggles are unnecessary when everyone agrees to play by the same rules. Your seeds to plant: integrity and awareness

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Your professional ambitions are pushing you to excel at every endeavor you undertake, casting you in a favorable light in the public eye. Destiny is calling at this New Moon in Scorpio, and it’s your turn to step into a leadership role. Letting go of any conflicting illusions and preconceived assumptions regarding personal prosperity enables you to make money doing what your heart loves. You don’t have to suffer to follow your dreams, but you do need to passionately believe in the intrinsic value of your work. Your seed to plant: unwavering confidence

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

More, more, more is the song playing on your intergalactic radio at this New Moon, and you can’t help but turn up the volume as you hum along. You are passionate to the nth degree as you envision all the potential places you wish to explore and all the knowledge you hope to acquire. Your outrageously amazing ideas are overwhelming to everyone except you now, as you work on manifesting your dreams in your future reality. Wandering off on an emotional journey could take you down an unexpected path of healing, so there’s no need to worry if you forget your map. Your seed to plant: infinite possibilities

This Weekend’s Love Horoscope: It’s Complicated

Your love horoscope for the weekend of November 17-19


Your head and heart are buzzing this weekend! On Friday Mercury will be at a positive angle to Mars, which is currently in Libra, the sign of relationships. You can see possibilities for your love life now that you may have been unable to see before. With a little hope and self-reflection, you have an opportunity to overcome old patterns or and find new hope for the future of your love life.

The power to make changes gets even stronger on Saturday, when the New Moon happens in Scorpio, the sign of deep reflection, intimacy, and transformation. This is an incredible time to delve into your own feelings about love and what you give to and receive from others. The New Moon represents the beginning of a fresh cycle, and gives you the chance to see yourself and your love life from a new perspective. Just don’t let the Moon’s irritating run-in with Uranus take over your feelings! Allow the fierce and calculating energy of Scorpio to flow through you and keep you focused.

On Sunday, Mars butts heads with Pluto, the planet of power and control. You may get roped into a power struggle or stalemate with your lover that makes you feel frustrated or stuck. You may even feel that the positive changes you have just been inspired to make hit an immediate wall. The best way to overcome conflict is to be open and communicate the changes you want to see happen in your relationships. The Moon has moved into Sagittarius by Sunday, and if you embrace the optimism and hope of this sign, you can drive away from problems and toward solutions.

Scorpio Love Compatibility: Intense, Jealous, and Magnetic

Calculate the romantic potential of each zodiac sign with Scorpio


As a deeply emotional and passionate sign, your ideal partnership is with a fellow Water sign who can match your intense levels of intimacy. Sensitive Water signs like Pisces has the depth to nurture your soul, while frustrating Fire types like Leo will make you feel out of control.

Scorpio and Aries

With such passion in each of your signs, it seems like Aries and Scorpio would make a good match. You both have a great deal of willpower and courage, but there are differences. You deal with powerful emotions by holding them in. Rams, on the other hand, have a shorter fuse and are prone to big explosions and fits of impatience. Aries’ short temper and your resentful and sometimes unforgiving personality can mix like oil and water. The good news? All of that intensity you both feel will make for red-hot desire … when you’re not fighting.

 

Scorpio and Taurus

Taurus is secure and dependable, and you’ll be happy to have someone who is so trustworthy. Bulls are your exact opposite zodiac sign, and in this case, opposites really do attract. While some signs are scared off by your intense emotions, this sign loves to be on the receiving end of them. The two of you spoil each other and enjoy it. All is not hearts and rainbows between you two, though. You both want the upper hand in the relationship. When power struggles inevitably happen, you both make worthy adversaries, and the resulting emotional meltdown will not be pretty.

Scorpio and Gemini

While Gemini is fascinated by a trail of hot, bubbling lava, you want to know what’s fueling the volcano. Brainy Geminis appreciate your thirst for knowledge, and they’ll enjoy sharing ideas and debating issues with you … until they realize they’ll never win. It’s not that you’re smarter, it’s that they’re no match for your intensity. In fact, you just may scare the heck out of them. You just may be too serious for a flighty Gemini, and they might be too flirtatious for a jealous Scorpio. Making this relationship work won’t be easy.

Scorpio and Cancer

Scorpio and Cancer are both emotional Water signs, but you tend to hold in your feelings for different reasons. You know that your emotions are powerful and intense, and you consciously tone them down so you won’t scare people. Cancers, on the other hand, keep their feelings to themselves because they’re afraid others won’t love them if they know too much. If you can gain a Crab’s trust, they’ll feel more comfortable opening up. One thing is certain: This won’t be a short-lived affair.

Scorpio and Leo

Leos are outgoing and flashy, often grabbing the limelight away from less showy signs. You want to be respected and recognized for your accomplishments, and if your Leo steals attention away from you, you’ll find it unbearable. Scorpio and Leo are both Fixed signs, which means you can both be stubborn when you want to be — and you often do. This isn’t an impossible relationship, but it will require a lot of compromise and acceptance on both sides. If you can pull it off, you’ll both be rewarded with a loving, loyal partner who is in it for the long haul.

Scorpio and Virgo

Virgos are more analytical and practical, and you tend to be more emotional and raw. If you can both learn to accept the qualities that make you different, you will have a deep respect for each other. You can bring your Virgo into a world of increased feeling and passion, and you might learn how to be more logical and rational from them. Romantically, you’re both too hot for many people to handle. Although Virgos seem cool and detached, they can focus passion like a laser. If they shine that light of love in your direction, you two can have a long-lasting, happy relationship.

 

Scorpio and Libra

A Libra can teach Scorpio how to find the perfect balance between head and heart — if you can get past your differences. Libras approach life intellectually, while you see everything through the filter of your emotions. While Libra uses language and actions, you feel things intensely without finding it necessary to verbalize them. Together you can share a deep and abiding trust for each other. If you allow your partner to instruct you on the finer things in life, you’ll be rewarded with a greater appreciation for beauty. Your Libra, on the other hand, will be rewarded with a sincere and lasting love.

Scorpio and Scorpio

When you meet another Scorpio, you may not like each other at first. In fact, you’ll probably dislike each other. You can be mirrors to each other, and you may not like seeing yourself so closely. You’ll be deeply attracted to each other — not that either of you know any other way to be attracted. You may be astounded by how intense you are when seen through another Scorpio’s eyes. At times, the emotions will be so extreme that you’ll both need to step away from the relationship, getting some fresh air from new people or experiences.

Scorpio and Sagittarius

You’re easily attracted to, and inspired by, a Sagittarian’s confidence and love of adventure. Chemistry may not be enough to make up for your fundamental differences, though. You follow your gut, while your Archer just shoots from the hip. You instinctively know if a plan is going to work or not, and your partner is likely to ignore your objections to follow an idea he or she is excited about. Sagittarius also avoids dealing with anything negative at all costs, which might be a problem for someone who needs to process every emotion — good or bad.

Scorpio and Capricorn

Like you, Capricorns tend to be reserved. For you, it’s a trust issue. For a Goat, it’s about doing what’s right. You see, Capricorns feel that sharing feelings is inappropriate a lot of the time. Because you have a similar demeanor, you have great respect for each other’s personal space, giving each other room to process things on your own terms. Don’t let your Goat’s cool exterior fool you, though. Once your partner learns the steps, he or she will dance with wild abandon. And the best part? Your Capricorn will always let you lead.

Scorpio and Aquarius

Scorpios value privacy, and would rather enjoy the comfort of home than venture out into uncharted territory. Aquarians, on the other hand, need to be out and around people. This difference alone may stop this relationship in its tracks before it even leaves the station. To add insult to injury, you’re both stubborn Fixed signs, and your possessive and jealous nature can make Aquarius feel smothered. So why even bother? Because if you can give each other the space to be who you are without judgment, it will totally be worth it, that’s why.

Scorpio and Pisces

Pisces and Scorpio are both water signs, which means you’re both intensely emotional. While you tend to spend a lot of time processing your emotions, Fishes are more interested in other people’s feelings. Your Pisces is sensitive and compassionate, and can sooth your outbursts with their kind heart. If those outbursts are directed at him or her, however, they can be easily wounded. If you can be more sensitive to your partner’s feelings, and if they can toughen up just a little bit, this can be a match that makes both of your dreams come true.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, November 17th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

The first half of the day stirs up productive mental energy, dear Aries. You are motivated to pursue a learning endeavor or further a mental interest. Conversations with a partner or special friend can be super helpful, encouraging, and motivating. You are attracting strong, competent, and loyal friends to you now. This is a time for putting ideas into action, sharing thoughts and beliefs, and strengthening alliances through communication. Tend to important errands and demands that are likely to arise today so that you can free yourself up for more adventurous and fulfilling activities. However, save brand new beginnings for another time since today’s Moon is Balsamic and tomorrow’s New Moon may reveal further information or interests. As well, watch for some tendencies for impatient decisions or actions. Someone may make you feel a little claustrophobic.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

The day is good for supporting others through practical help, or for being on the receiving end of such help, dear Taurus. It’s also a strong time for work and research, as you can feel more motivated than usual to get answers! You might become more aware of the need to take charge of health and fitness matters. Even so, there can be some hesitation experienced now if you feel caged in. Aim to recognize a need for change. There is a New Moon occurring tomorrow morning that marks the beginning of a cycle, making it appropriate to wind down today as you end the previous cycle. It can be a good time for tying up loose ends with work for many of you.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

This morning is good for tackling difficult problems or taking on a mental challenge, dear Gemini. You are very willing to act on your ideas, and although you’re self-motivated now, a partner or special someone can be encouraging as well, and this is much appreciated! While there can be a somewhat jagged or hectic pace at times today, you’re seeing the bigger picture and are more able than usual to hone in on your priorities. You’re also quick to get to the point. In fact, you can be a little impatient with beating around the bush today. The Moon is Balsamic today, which means a lunar phase cycle is coming to an end. Tomorrow’s New Moon sets you on a new path, particularly related to work or health, and today, take things easy.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

You could feel quite driven to put an idea into action or to pursue a line of thought today, dear Cancer, especially if it’s related to family, home, health, and work. This can be a time of organizing or reorganizing. You find it easier to get through things quickly and efficiently, perhaps because you’re very decided and certain. Illuminating conversations can be had at your workplace or through people you deal with on a daily basis. The day can hold some surprises, however, largely work-related or related to responsibilities, but do your best to stay on track. A New Moon will occur tomorrow morning, and this means that today is better for working on in-progress projects rather than beginning brand new ventures.

Leo

Leo
Leo

Today, you can put a creative spin on whatever you’re doing, dear Leo, and decisions tend to be quick but practical as well. You’re inclined to say it like it is now, and for the most part, it’s going over well. It’s a great time to take care of business or get clarity on a matter. However, it’s best not to put brand new ideas into action since the Moon is Balsamic today. Interests and insights can change in a few days. A dilemma could have you torn between venturing out or getting the rest you need today. However, as the day advances today, it’s best to take it easy with a New Moon occurring tomorrow morning.

 

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

Energy levels are good this morning, dear Virgo, and you are assertive in a healthy way, willing to take the lead to get things done, but also conscious of others’ input and needs. It’s a good time for solving problems at home or with business, especially. You’re likely to feel hopeful and optimistic feelings revolving around work matters and living conditions. This is a good time to work on a budget or to talk about finances and strategies. You’re quick to get to a point. However, if you’ve been doing too much, you’ll feel the resultant tension later today. Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to get back into a positive and determined frame of mind. As well, the Moon is Balsamic which means a cycle is ending, making way for the New Moon tomorrow that’s sure to stir up new interests and focus.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

This is a good time for personal magnetism and influence, dear Libra. It may be something you say or do that magnetizes opportunities to you. It’s a good day for making a proposal or presenting an idea especially. You’re quick to put a plan into action and not inclined to mull things over very much at the moment, and this feels good. However, there may be some tension in your interactions, such as a temporary disruption that has to do with a need for change that you haven’t yet fully acknowledged. Recognizing this is the most critical step towards resolving problems now. Even with some surprise elements to the day, this is a beautiful period for resolving conflicts generally speaking, and particularly for putting something to rest. A Balsamic Moontoday favors looking back and winding down instead of working yourself up and starting something brand new.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

This morning is strong for healing activities, dear Scorpio, as you are drawn to activities that are regenerative in nature. It’s a good time for gaining new information through study and observation. You can more easily focus your mind and prioritize. You’re ready to take on intellectual challenges and your problem-solving skills are above par, especially related to money, talents, and emotions. Tricky issues or ideas can be tackled now with greater ease. Communications with others are energetic and forward-looking. You may be dealing with some uncertainty, change, or chaos related to schedules, work, or health, but you’re likely to get back on track quickly.The Moon is Balsamic which points to the need to wind down as the day advances. Do so, if possible! A New Moon will occur in your sign tomorrow morning, and a new energetic cycle that’s all about you will begin. Brand new beginnings should be saved for later since the New Moon can act as a “reset” button on some levels.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

You’ll find it quite pleasantly straightforward to make a friend or to enjoy a current friendship today, dear Sagittarius. Express yourself and stay flexible — be spontaneous if you feel right about something in your heart. This can be a time for lending someone a hand or acting upon an idea with much satisfaction. A hurried pace may threaten to disrupt the flow, but you’re resilient now and quick to bounce back. As the day advances, aim to slow right down for best results. A New Moon will occur tomorrow morning, motivating you to begin clearing the decks to make room for new growth and developments. Look for ways to simplify your life now, mainly by bringing habits and attitudes that are no longer serving you well to an end.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

You’re optimistic and ready to put ideas into motion today, dear Capricorn. Still, this is a better time to let go than take on, to sell than buy, not just with money! A Balsamic Moon points to the end of a lunar cycle, such that winding things down makes sense. Even so, you’re poised to get a lot done now, and that’s great. You are motivated to fulfill your duties, and then some, and the positive feedback only serves to encourage you further. You may effectively read between the lines, draw upon past experience, or uncover information now that helps you advance. As quickly as the day may demand your attention, taking time to center yourself will be appropriate. There may be a minor conflict between the need to attend to family or personal matters and the desire to keep other connections and relationships alive. Even so, it’s relatively easy to focus your mind and get back on track.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

This is a time for expressing yourself with confidence and verve, dear Aquarius. You can be a little more assertive than usual in effective rather than aggressive ways. Grab any opportunity that arises now that pulls you out of your usual routine and adds a dash of adventure to your life. Problem-solving or active involvement with a friend or group can figure strongly. The desire to talk, share your experiences, and open up to others is strong. Watch, however, for impatience now. The Moon is Balsamictoday. A New Moon tomorrow morning will serve as a reset button on some level, with new beginnings possible along career and long-term goal lines. Today is more appropriate for winding down than starting fresh.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

You have the stamina and energy to accomplish a lot this morning, dear Pisces, although later today, it’s best to tone things down. There is a focus on treating one another fairly and on straightforward communication. Your x-ray vision is high this morning, which is useful for business moves or strategies for general life direction and next steps. You don’t want to waste time on roundabout conversations. It’s rather easy to drum up support for what you’re doing and saying today. Later today, you may want to settle in and take extra time for your intuition to kick in with a New Moon occurring tomorrow that marks the beginning of a new cycle.

 

 

If You Were Born on Friday, November 17

This is an excellent period for enjoying new opportunities, experiences, and perspectives, as well as wonderful social or love opportunities. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for

 staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well. Useful contacts can be made during this period. Your love or social life comes alive this year.

If You Were Born Today, November 17

Although you have a talent for communicating, you are not an open book. Your personality is vibrant, and others notice you wherever you go. As emotional as you are, you prefer to present the strong side of your personality to others. You may readily discuss your personal past, but you are not one to whine about your life. You do have an interesting life story, no doubt about it, as you tend to attract change and even crisis into your life with your controlled yet powerful emotions. Your life is far from static, likely because your personality is very dynamic. Famous people born today: Danny DeVito, Grace Abbott, Martin Scorsese, Lauren Hutton, Gordon Lightfoot, Rock Hudson, Lorne Michaels.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, November 18th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

The New Moon that occurs today increases your awareness of the preciousness of life now, and this can lead to a new resolution to reach out more often to others and to take better care of yourself going forward. Quitting bad habits is best done in the days before a New Moon, and starting new long-term programs is best attempted in the week following a New Moon. Now that you’re beginning a new cycle, it’s a good idea to set a plan in motion that focuses on improving emotional health and wellness. You might decide to start a counseling program, pay particular attention to an important person or project in your life, or work on gaining new independence from debilitating debts. This is a time when forgiving others for slights can serve you well. Even so, as the day moves forward, there can be a tendency to lock heads with others, to instigate, or to attempt to force a matter with Mars and Pluto nearing a square aspect. Resentments might surface, but this also gives you the chance to see what anger or hurt you’re holding onto.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

The New Moon occurring this morning favors a fresh start in a relationship over the coming weeks, dear Taurus, and supports your social life in general. You’re in particularly good form in negotiations, counseling, marriage, or business partnerships. A new agreement or understanding, whether explicit or not, with a partner or friend can boost your spirits tremendously now. You’re in a strong position for making, renewing, or improving relationships. However, later today, obsessive behavior is something to be on the lookout for. There is a tendency to dwell on a negative emotion or difficult topics or to dig in your heels on an issue that gets you into a state of frustration with someone close to you. This can be especially true for those who are working today, but the dilemma or stand-off might also revolve around a routine or work matter.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

The New Moon occurring this morning brings the potential for a new beginning, dear Gemini, particularly in the areas of work, health, diet, fitness, and habits. It’s a great time for making improvements to these areas with a take-charge, fresh, and focused attitude. The Sun and Venus have been turning your attention to your working life and routines recently, and now the New Moon pulls it all together and motivates you to put everything into order. The weeks ahead are favorable for beginning new health regimes and routines and for paying particular attention to your work. However, as the day moves forward, you may be dwelling on something if it’s not going exactly your way, and power plays are possible, particularly likely with a child, love interest, or intimate partner. If you face resistance, it might be best to adjust expectations or let go of something even temporarily. Certainly, this is a time for seeing areas of your life where you’re too attached for your own good.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

The New Moon occurring this morning is particularly favorable for you, dear Cancer, bringing powerful yet easy energy for self-expression, fun dalliances, creative pursuits, and romantic matters in the coming weeks. There can be improvements to your romantic life and possibly a new beginning. You can focus on injecting a spirit of whimsy into your life and more confidence into your creative pursuits and hobbies. You are more aware of your need to entertain, be entertained, celebrate, enjoy, and share yourself with others. You are likely to attract positive attention from others now. As the day advances, tensions can mount, especially if others seem to be resisting or standing in your way. People may be seen as especially demanding, or you might be expecting a lot from others. People shouldn’t have to follow another person’s script, so watch for this. Also, try to let go a little if you’re holding onto a rigid idea of what you want.

Leo

Leo
Leo

This morning’s New Moon gives you an extra charge of energy, dear Leo, and changes and improvements may be necessary as you reorganize your personal life, or shuffle around your priorities. Family and home-related activities can thrive now. There could be a previously neglected area of your life that now seems essential to revisit. New or improved living conditions, the beginning of a new project on or in the home, or a renewed family connection can be expressions of this energy. With Mars in your communications sector since October 22nd, you’re more passionate about your ideas and personal interests, as well as with your communications. However, at times this passion can border on obsession, and later today as Mars and Pluto form a square, this is an even stronger possibility. Watch that you’re not holding on so tightly to a specific belief or point of view that it begins to cause you troubles and frustration.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

There has been increased emphasis on busy work, errands, connecting, and learning these days, dear Virgo, and this morning’s New Moon brings all of this together. You’re excited about projects or news now. You might have a major project to work on, a new line of study you’re interested in, or a new goal for connecting with people around you, and this New Moon helps you to focus on achieving what you want and need to do. Mars in your solar second house for weeks now has increased your desire to better yourself or your life, as well as your confidence to do so. Mars’ square to Pluto can stimulate the shadow side of Mars tonight and tomorrow, however, leading to impatience, brusqueness, and unnecessary conflict or tension. As the day progresses, you can experience some frustration over personal finances, values, and ideas that seem to conflict with those of someone in your life, or that stimulate fears. This is a time for seeing unhealthy attachments.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

This morning’s New Moon has a way of reminding you of your practical priorities, dear Libra. In the coming weeks, you’re in a superior position for taking charge of your finances, business, and sense of security. Stability, safety, respect, and physical comforts are in focus. There can be essential discoveries about your earning potential and your attachment to material things. Also today, a Mars-Pluto square is brewing. While it’s exact tomorrow morning, it’s in influence today as well. Mars in your sign since October 22nd has boosted your confidence and inspired you to take charge of your life as well as to take action on pursuing your personal goals and plans. This can work wonderfully well for you at times, but with Mars under duress today, you might struggle with how to manage excess energy efficiently, and experience some impatience, pride, and misdirected anger. Make it your goal not to make a mountain out of a molehill.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

The New Moon occurring this morning is in your sign, dear Scorpio, and it offers exceptional opportunities to make positive changes in your life now and in the coming weeks. You are especially noticed and respected during this period. It’s time to reinvent yourself in some personal way, such as with a new look or manner of expressing and presenting yourself. Commitments to improvements related to mind, body, and spirit are in focus now. You are independent, feel freer, and more authentic to your nature in your self-expression. Discover what it is you truly want for yourself and then go for it! Keep in mind, however, that a Mars-Pluto square is influencing the day and the New Moon, and while it can be a powerful driving force, it requires sensitive handling. Something can get you all riled up, and if this is the case, use frustration or anger to motivate you to improve something in your life that’s truly helpful for you rather than waste time on resentment.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

The New Moon this morning inspires a strong need for rest and replenishment, dear Sagittarius. Now and in the coming weeks, you’ll be doing some soul-searching or taking care of spiritual needs and mental health more attentively. Your private life and inner world assume more importance in the weeks ahead. As the day advances, you could run into some difficulties as you meet stubbornness and rigidity of thought. For some of you, there may be an issue surrounding values, money, or questions of ownership and boundaries that can easily cross the line and turn into power games or other forms of manipulation. Try not to hold on so tightly to your methods or approach that you push others away or make them feel crossed over. Ultimately, any anger or frustration that emerges today can point you in the right direction as to what needs healing and resolution.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

The New Moon this morning serves to reinvigorate your social life, dear Capricorn, or your feeling of connectedness with others and hopes for the future. The chance to begin anew is with you in the coming weeks regarding making contacts, networking, formulating long-term goals, and connecting with your community. It’s a fabulous time to strengthen ties with friends or a group or for taking on a project in collaboration with others. There might even be some drama in your social life that shakes things up and leads to changes. As the day progresses, there is a tendency to become so focused on a matter that you fail to see other options. This works out fine if you use it to push forward a productive goal, or if you pour your passion into something that truly needs undivided attention, but if you’re dwelling on a matter that is not yet ready to push forward, then problems can ensue. Try to let go of issues that truly aren’t progressing today, and wait for a better time to pour your energy into these things.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

The New Moon this morning can push long-term goals and performance to the top of your priority list for the coming weeks, dear Aquarius. You have the power to reshape your reputation and professional goals in beneficial ways now. New or renewed business plans and objectives take form going forward. You can be feeling reinvigorated and excited about where you’re headed now. There can be substantial changes in your life when it comes to your own influence or authority, or with authority figures in your life, as well as status or reputation. As today progresses, a Mars-Pluto aspect comes more strongly into influence, and there is a tendency to fixate or dwell on a topic even if it’s not working for you, and perhaps even if it’s frustrating you immensely! Aim to let something go long enough to gain perspective. Alternatively, you may need a push or a rush of frustration to motivate you to make a significant change, but do keep in mind that there is a real tendency to blow things out of proportion today.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

The New Moon this morning works in harmony with your sign, dear Pisces. This lunation offers you opportunities to move outside of your routine — and to feel reenergized and motivated as a result — in the coming weeks. This is a time for feeding your mind and spirit. There may be opportunities to broaden your horizons through travel, education, or other forms of adventure and life experience. New avenues for getting out and about may open to you. As today progresses, we get closer to a Mars-Pluto square that tends to bring up buried frustration or anger, however. One of the problems with this aspect is that you not only see problems you dwell on them far too long. What starts as a passionate feeling about something or someone could quickly turn into an obsession or a power struggle. Treat this as an opportunity to understand where you’re overly attached and try to keep a healthy sense of proportion.

 

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Chariot



The Chariot is the representation of Victory and the personality traits required to attain victory. The Chariot indicates self-awareness and control. Courage—the ability to overcome fear and confront the unknown head on–is a primary ingredient of any victorious campaign and is denoted by the Chariot. So too is force of will. Often success is as much the product of will power and a refusal to surrender as it is anything else. The Chariot also represents the healthy personality of someone who believes in themselves; someone who can take control of the situation and bring events to a positive end. His successes come in competition with others.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

Fortune



Fortune represents that aspect of life that is directed by forces and events we may not understand or even be aware of. In short, Fortune deals with chance—those occurrences that manage to alter even the most structured of lives, usurp man’s “best laid plans.” While the effects of Fortune are unpredictable, the outcome is always change; sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. Our path through life is never a ride down a perfectly straight highway. Sometimes we may even experience hairpin turns or complete reversals of direction. Fortune is strong reminder that despite our plans, the Universe has its own agenda from which we cannot escape participation.

Moon in Libra

 

Creating order is the focus, not necessarily through tidying or organizing as was the case while the Moon was in Virgo, but rather through pleasing interactions with others and aesthetics in our environment. We tend to solve problems through diplomacy, and we are more able to put aside our own emotions in order to achieve the peace we crave. The tendency now is to avoid direct confrontations. Decisions do not come easily. Seeing both sides to any given situation is the main reason for hesitation. Fear of losing others’ approval is another.

 

The Moon in Libra generally favors the following activities: Relationship and partnership issues, activities involving teamwork and cooperation, activities that involve self-examination, activities related to beauty.

 

Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday,  November 15th

 

Aries

Aries
Aries

You have a lot to learn about yourself and your needs through your interactions with a significant other today, dear Aries. You may be going back and forth about whether you want to be close to someone or enjoy some independence now. As the day advances, allow your intuition to flow naturally and spontaneously so that you can arrive at a greater understanding of people and money, not through analysis but your intuition! Finances may improve through unusual, hidden, or unexpected channels today and tomorrow. Honesty with yourself and about your feelings can take you to a place of forgiveness. A cycle beginning today brings increased energy, effort, and patience for focus, concentration, and research. This cycle that lasts until the middle of January is also excellent for self-renewal through channeling your energies into worthwhile personal causes or for getting rid of bad habits and making lifestyle changes.

Taurus

Taurus
Taurus

You have a lot to do and much to draw your attention to work and duties now, Taurus, but you’re also in high need of a break! This can be a day of going back and forth between the two or finding a healthy compromise. The latter seems more satisfying. With Venus and Neptune on their way to a harmonious trine, you are very tuned in to your intuition. Your powers of attraction run high, as well. You are coming to a place of understanding about recent events, and especially surrounding your relationships. People tend to be on your side right now. You may not be wholly decided regarding your affections, but you’re getting there. A cycle that begins today and runs until the middle of January is excellent for developing partnerships or working relationships. Someone may be particularly helpful for getting things done or might motivate you to set important projects in motion. Alternatively, this is an excellent period for working very well in a partnership.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

You may feel a sudden need to pull yourself away from a project, relationship, or situation today simply because you need some air or space to breathe, dear Gemini, as fun or exciting as it is. Keep in mind, however, that abrupt actions can lead to frustration or confusion, so aim to divide your time without too much fanfare. Venus and Neptune are heading towards a harmonious trine, and this can draw the artist out of you. It’s excellent as well for arriving at solutions or ideas instinctively and not necessarily in logical ways, as well as applying your creativity to practical matters. There could be unusual circumstances connecting you with the right people, projects, and information now, particularly when it comes to work and health issues. A cycle beginning today and lasting until mid-January, in fact, is excellent for bringing more value and efficiency to your daily routines, work, or pursuit of health and wellness. This can be a pleasantly busy, dedicated period of your life.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

As much as you’re into your home life right now, you may need to pull back or take a break if you begin to feel a little smothered or out of the loop, dear Cancer. You shouldn’t have much of a problem finding outlets for expressing yourself today. Avoid abrupt actions for best results now. An inspiring influence helps soften the day’s energies, encouraging good feelings, forgiveness, and imagination. You are attracting who and what you want, although in many ways you’re doing so indirectly. Letting go of negative thoughts or expectations helps you enjoy and relax. Interestingly, you’re beginning a cycle, lasting until mid-January, in which you start taking your leisure time more seriously. From the outside looking in, entertainment and pleasures may resemble work! However, this is a period in which you enjoy applying yourself to projects and hobbies. A more dedicated, committed approach to creative projects, love relationships, children, and hobbies can benefit you greatly, and can even be healing now.

Leo

Leo
Leo

You’re inclined to enjoy your personal interests thoroughly and to take on many and varied activities today, Leo. Even so, you need a breather from this from time to time, if only to gain some perspective. Feeling confined can slow down production. It helps to shake up the routine a little so that you can refresh yourself mentally and emotionally. A Venus-Neptune aspect holding sway over the day easily pulls you into a compassionate, accepting frame of mind. This is a good time for strengthening relationships through appreciation of shared memories and familiarity. There can be more tenderness and gentleness in your interactions, and there may be a theme of service or support. Also today, you begin a cycle in which you pay particular attention to home and family matters until mid-January, and this can be quite satisfying and healing. Building your primary relationships and dedicating yourself to family or domestic concerns can help you feel more secure and confident.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

You’re excited about your work, business, or personal accomplishments right now, dear Virgo, and rightfully so, but today, you may need to take some breaks from the routine just to refresh yourself. Try not to fight this need for inspiration. A Venus-Neptune aspect comes into influence today as well, and also supports healthy escapism! This aspect encourages you to let go of tension and enjoy life’s beautiful moments. There is good energy for getting a warm message across. A helpful conversation or understanding with someone can figure strongly now. Also today, you begin a cycle, lasting until mid-January, in which you can be very dedicated to your personal interests and projects, sharing ideas, and connecting with others. People are drawn to your intelligence or unique viewpoint as well as your commitment to whatever you’re doing.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

You can be so intent on your personal plans and endeavors today that you find yourself resistant to changes introduced by others, dear Libra. With the Moon in your sign, this is a time for some healthy self-focus, but it may be a good idea to give a little if sticking to your plans winds up making you feel stuck and uncomfortable. Fortunately, a Venus-Neptune trine comes into influence now, and you can feel increasingly more confident in your intuition as the day advances. There can be a soul connection made or a feeling that things are magically falling into place. A psychic rapport experienced with people around you is possible now, particularly in your working relationships. An air of mystery around you can be beneficial. Also today, a cycle begins that lasts until mid-January in which security and business or practical matters are a focus. You’ll find it easy to pour your energies into earthy, comforting, and natural activities that help you heal and cleanse, as well as hone and develop talents and boost your income.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

A strong urge to hide yourself away or take a bit of time away from demanding situations can overcome you today, dear Scorpio, and you need this. However, you may have to do battle with a few things you’ve left undone, and coming to a compromise makes the most sense. Dividing your attention may have to do, and doing so without too much fanfare makes the day run a little more smoothly. A Venus-Neptune aspect influences the day, fortunately, and supports your efforts to relax and decompress. It holds the added benefit of framing you beautifully. On both social and spiritual levels, the day can be quite magical. Happiness in the present but also hopefulness about the future combine to your satisfaction. With Vesta entering your sign today and staying in Scorpio until mid-January, having a personal project or mission becomes you. Independent work may be in focus now, and taking extra time to concentrate on your work or pursuits can be rewarding.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Commitments to a friend, network, or group are in focus today, dear Sagittarius, although they can clash just a little with more personal concerns. Giving a little by compromising may be your best bet. A Venus-Neptune trine influences the day (and tomorrow morning), and although relationships require some delicacy, they have a magical touch to them. This can be a good time for coming to a sense of peace about your private life or enjoying a revelation or secret. Supporting someone in your life can be very satisfying. You begin a cycle today, lasting until mid-January, in which you can get a whole lot done behind the scenes or doing background, unglamorous, or preparation work with Vesta in your privacy sector. Doing things on your own can be most effective, and you can be happily busy in the process. You also have a stronger need to regroup and recoup your energy, and perhaps more options to do so during this cycle.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

You can find yourself quite engrossed in your work or responsibilities today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon, once again, spending the day at the top of your solar chart. However, distractions are likely, some of which have to do with your own inner unrest or restlessness, and you may need to divide your time. Helping you along is a Venus-Neptune aspect that comes into influence, promoting psychic rapport with others, expressions of compassion and forgiveness, and thoughtful gestures. Today and tomorrow are good for mending broken fences. In fact, you begin a cycle today, lasting until mid-January, in which working with others towards a common goal — or working towards a cherished dream independently — can be very beneficial, healing, and satisfying. You can find yourself pleasantly committed and dedicated to a friend or project now.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

Again today, you have a particular interest in learning, sharing ideas, and personal interests, dear Aquarius, and these endeavors are in great shape, save for a few distractions! Differences in opinion may frustrate, but there are a couple of influences on you now that help you rise above it all. One especially supportive aspect is a Venus-Neptune trine that boosts your confidence in the idea of letting go and enjoying yourself leading to good things. It’s also good for business intuition and emotional intelligence. You’re notably winning and charming in a position of leadership or management right now, or simply getting a nice popularity boost. A cycle begins today that lasts until mid-January in which you feel pleasantly committed to your long-term goals, career, or reputation. Your increased patience for the effort involved in achieving your ambitions is notable now and leads to a more organized and fruitful approach.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

When it comes to money and valuables or business today, dear Pisces, you may experience conflicting drives — on the one hand to push forward and be progressive, and on the other to stick with what has worked in the past. You may be best off arriving at a compromise. A Venus-Neptune aspect comes into influence today, upping your confidence in your hunches or intuition, and possibly leading to a pleasant revelation. It’s easier than usual to express acceptance, compassion, and understanding today, and this is right up your alley. Also today, you begin a cycle in which you feel particularly committed to your beliefs, projects, or learning endeavors. This period lasts until mid-January and is excellent for developing your skills and arriving at a better understanding of your goals and beliefs.

 

If Today Is Your Birthday, November 15th

Although you are intense and sometimes quite stubborn, you are also quite versatile and somewhat restless. Your mind is so sharp and your talents many, that you may change your career path more than a few times in your life. Your relationships may be a little challenging.

It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

2018 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.

The reason relationships look so wonderful for you this season, however, is due to several celestial events. First, Venus moves through your sign from October 14-November 7, granting you extra magnetism and beauty.

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Wheel of Fortune



The Wheel of Fortune represents that aspect of life that is directed by forces and events we may not understand or even be aware of. In short, The Wheel deals with chance—those occurrences that manage to alter even the most structured of lives, usurp man’s “best laid plans.” While the effects of The Wheel are unpredictable, the outcome is always change; sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. Our path through life is never a ride down a perfectly straight highway. Sometimes we may even experience hairpin turns or complete reversals of direction. The Wheel of Fortune is strong reminder that despite our plans, the Universe has its own agenda from which we cannot escape participation.

 

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Emperor



The Emperor is blessed with the skills to successfully lead others. He can turn chaos into order and provide structure to that which is unbound. He is quick of mind and confident in his power and right to rule, and does so in a just manner. Although stern by nature, he truly is the ultimate father figure. He will provide as needed, teach those with unanswered questions, protect the vulnerable, set and maintain boundaries. His perfect world runs on schedule and is free of any disturbances. What the Emperor must be wary of is setting boundaries and rules where none are needed. If he isn’t careful not to over use his powers he may well become a tyrant.

Your Weekly Love Horoscopes for Monday, November 13th

Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

With the sun, Venus and Jupiter all in transformative Scorpio, we are all hoping for a better time ahead.

And if we reflect for one moment, we may well realise that starting something new, changing our perception and looking at life from a different angle, maybe is what we all need to do to secure a very loving future.

 

ARIES

Now most of us ‘react’ to other people’s behaviour rather than ‘respond’.  Reaction is emotionally driven. Response is to reflect objectively, rather than take it personally. So your response this week will be to be observant, sexy and amused.  It’s called being alive and not being overwhelmed by anyone’s issues, not even your own.

 

TAURUS

You’re beginning to feel that you’re getting your life right, and that it’s time to move on, if need be. You’ve met people, or seen things over the past few months which have not only changed your perception of the world, but also of yourself. This week, you begin to realise that a romantic change for the better is coming your way.

 

GEMINI

It’s hardly surprising you’re feeling frustrated about romance. So why are these feelings so powerful at the moment? What is it about this exaggerated sense that is getting to you? Frankly, you’re ready for a challenge. Soon, you will be able to calm your restless longings with rewards of the sexiest kind.

 

CANCER

This week, it seems that clarity about your future is needed. And you will see that for all your belief in doing things by the book, there is something deeply mysterious about the universe and love. What’s more, you realize that commitment to self-understanding means you can also truly love from your heart. And what is that, if not the truest love of all?

 

LEO

Right now, you’re waking up to the fact that you’re worth a million times more than those past feelings of being inadequate or unwanted. You have passion in bucket-loads, and it’s time to ring the changes. So instead of weeping for what has been and cannot be again, it’s time to laugh not only at the world, but with yourself.

 

VIRGO

It’s nice to know you can now make some life-changing decisions. Yes, remember that word change? Time to start expressing those desires to yourself and if attached, then share those words with the one you love. You will be surprised what a dynamic and enriching love life you are about to experience. Start loving what you once feared; yourself.

 

LIBRA

Someone is not only bringing you down to earth, but also opening your eyes to how mysteriously love moves. But you have little choice but to air your feelings and generate a few deeper truths.  What do you fear so much? Is it perhaps that deep down inside you feel really vulnerable in the face of love? Step outside the ring of fire, and enjoy!

 

SCORPIO

With a renewed sense of self-esteem, you decide to take a deep breath and tell someone special what you really want and need in a relationship. Wants and needs are often very different, make sure they’re not incompatible and you can start to truly live that dream.

 

SAGITTARIUS

Some of us think we can gain confidence by being with someone one who permanently boosts our ego. Alternatively, if what you ‘think’ you want, might be someone to clear up your emotional mess, remember that what you ‘really’ want, is to to be able to do so yourself. Time to clean up your feelings maybe?

 

CAPRICORN

Social acceptance seems to be a problem for you this week. But why worry what others think, when if you love yourself, universal love will be all around you too? Time to step out in style, and either meet the partner of your dreams or dance with a loved one and glow in your mutual warmth.

 

AQUARIUS

Just for one moment think of what you secretly desire. Isn’t it to be a bit wild and free? Isn’t it to be more romantic, unaffected by what other people think of you? Don’t deny passion in your life, for in the months to come, the planets will be bringing you the chance to discover the real fire in your heart

 

PISCES

You still have this idea that you must either keep the love of your life on their toes, or permanently be responsible for their happiness. But this week, it seems the game is about to be played another way. Love begins to be less of a neat stairway to heaven and more a series of leaps and exciting bounds.

Single? Your Daring Dating Horoscopes for the Week of November 13th

David Wells, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

As the working week begins, the Moon coasts into your relationship sky for an up close and personal that brings her alongside your ruler Mars. It could be emotional, it could go over the top but it’s going to show the truth of how a new squeeze feels about you. And you about them.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

What if you were right all of the time, I know you think you are but I would guess there are moments when you may not be. You’d never grow, never learn anything and never have a reason to cuddle up, to kiss and make up? Kiss and make out.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

If you don’t think someone is telling you the truth, you can ask them more questions. What you see as a fact-finding mission, they may see as flirting; would they be wrong? Someone has found the way to your heart; a good argument and a hearty charm offensive.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

With three planets in your new love sky, your chances of meeting someone meet the same odds; increased threefold. So, what’s the plan Cancer? Is it a night out with mates, swiping right, or left or turning up at a buffet and mingle with your best smile and attractive optimism?

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

You know you’re in the right place when someone challenges you to be funny. Not directly you understand, in that ‘my friends tell me you’re wonderful, let’s see it’ kind of way. A stony-faced doubter may not be all that attractive, but he or she will grow on you, and you on them.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

What you’re about is getting to know someone better, what you’re about is only leaving the house if you think you’re going to have a good time, get something from the conversation and maybe enjoy a decent meal whilst you’re at it. What you’re not about is a fly by. Make it clear.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

As the Moon and Uranus meet for their monthly face off you’re offered a chance to clear the air with Miss. Natural-Deodorant or Mr. Halitosis; someone who you’d like to get you close to but first you have to get personal. Tackle it, or call it a day. Mint?

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

You can’t tell if you’re in love, in lust or in-between a rock and hard place if you decide to go ahead with chatting up the ex of a mate? Clouding the issue is the job of the Moon, not for fun you understand but to cause you to look again before making a commitment.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

There’s nothing wrong with listening to your intuition over any other body part, heart for example? Where you may come unstuck is if you listen to your intuition and go with said body part as the morning after will be a whole heap of told you so. You know if it’s right; or not?

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

What do you do with a drunken sailor early in the morning? Much the same as you did with him all night; check he’s breathing and keep an eye on his fluid levels. A good deed, someone in need, someone who you could have ignored; fate puts love there. Probably not a drunken sailor TBH; poetic license.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

The universe is shining a very, very bright light on your love life. It’s the sort that shows up a love interest but it may be so bright that you can’t see who it is, and yet everyone else can? Be guided by your friends, they’ve noticed a would be love interest.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

I know it’s not easy for you to trust when you’ve had anything but in the past, someone saying you can trust them isn’t going to cut it Pisces. And so, you must decide if love is and adventure or you want guarantees? You know the answer to that I am sure.

 

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday 13th November

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Should you trust your instincts today? Of course you should Aries! Saturn hands you the gift of clarity and you will be able to see through a lie before it’s even told. You’ll also know whether you should call an ex!

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Why are you allowing others to interfere in your life Taurus? Only you can know what and who will make you happy. Try to bring that stubborn nature you are known for to the fore. This will be a great day to kick bad habits and influences.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
If you play games in love then of course you’re going to get your fingers burnt. What you need is some downtime so you can remember what’s important to you in life. Sales and purchases go well, if you hold out for what you want.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
The Sun brings out the need for you to see those who are important to you in life. You want their advice to make decisions about your life and who you should venture into your future with.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
If you tell a lie to cover a lie then of course it’s going to get out of hand. Come clean Leo, as close ones already know far more than you think anyway. Honest talking and respect bring a new and improved bond.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
You discover new and improved ways to climb the career ladder. Just be careful of saying bad things about those you’ve worked for or with, as paths of past and present may cross more than you think.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd
Don’t give in to the pressure which close ones are trying to place on you. Stand your ground, or you will never forgive yourself. Also remember that you don’t have to scream and shout like others to get your own way.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Listen to your inner voice today, for it will lead you well. If only you had followed your feelings two weeks ago, then you would not feel so cornered today. Rumours in the workplace are not to be listened to.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Why are you allowing the past to influence what you do in the future? You of all signs should know that you feel so much better when you wipe the slate clean and let events explain themselves.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Trying to work out what your next move should be is not easy. It would be though, if you thought more about what makes you happy and what makes you feel anxious.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Don’t take too much time to decide whether you are going to say yes to what a close one is asking. They may take your deliberation as a sign of disinterest. Make peace with that family member today, while you still have the opening to do so.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Finances are your priority at this time as you try to sort out how to increase your incomings. Think of what you know you enjoy doing and you’ll soon be in the black and not the red my friend.

If You Were Born Today, November 13

 

You are wise beyond your years, and your eyes reflect this wisdom. The outward expression of your personality is strong and determined, although this hides a very emotional and sensitive nature. Success may come later in life, simply because in youth, you are inclined to more daydreaming than action. You may come across as sarcastic and even tough, but you are a thoughtful and kind person with a love of knowledge, justice, and truth. You also have a well-developed sense of humor. Famous people born today: Whoopi Goldberg, Richard Mulligan, Robert Louis Stevenson, Jimmy Kimmel, Chris Noth, Garry Marshall, Gerard Butler, Frances Conroy.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

Jupiter transits conjunct your Sun this year, expanding your opportunities and boosting your confidence. This transit brings more awareness of moral issues and long-term goals, as well as a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn. This is a feel-good transit that boosts your popularity. Optimism is with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

Pluto transits sextile your Sun this year – another empowering transit. What used to satisfy you may not continue to do so, particularly if your goals have been superficial or a poor reflection of your inner desires. You are no longer willing to make compromises in the important areas of your life, particularly with regards to career and your life path. You are more determined this year, and it’s an excellent time for getting rid of bad habits. This is a year in which to get your life back on track, as you have the willpower to do so. Others are bound to recognize your leadership skills and talents, or, at the very least, your potential. You want your life path and your objectives to reflect what you’re really about. You benefit from being more decisive than usual, and your ability to concentrate and focus help you to achieve what you set out to do. A new project or goal begun this year has a good chance of being successful and long-lasting.

Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.

The year ahead is strong for energetic mental work. You may be involved in frequent lectures, debates, and discussions during the year. Your daily life is busier than usual and you convey your ideas more powerfully. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. Do be aware that you are more inclined towards pie in the sky thinking. You could be led astray by others or by our own unrealistic expectations. Err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.

There can be helpful interactions with superiors or with older or more experienced people during this period, and benefits can come as a result. There can be a choice to structure, limit, or simplify your life in a significant way that leads to major improvements in your life.

Developing existing businesses is highly favored this year. Long-term alliances can be made this year. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.

This is an excellent period for enjoying new opportunities, experiences, and perspectives, as well as wonderful social or love opportunities. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well. Useful contacts can be made during this period. Your love or social life comes alive this year.

 

2017 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.

2018 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday 14th November

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
It doesn’t matter how many times you fail, as long as you succeed in the end and you will! Keep on trying Aries, as influences are around in the stars to make the impossible possible. A family member who wasn’t on your side, soon will be.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Be the best version of yourself Taurus. Letting jealousy force you into acting in a way you know you will regret, is letting it win. You’re a fighting sign and you’re better and stronger than that.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
You feel you’ve lost the trust of a close one, but Mercury is on hand to help you make things right. Kind words can unlock iron doors. All you have to do is use the words I feel you know are necessary. Ring so I can tell you your future.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
The moon helps you make sense of what last weekend really meant. I hope you see now how you are too good for certain faces who have been playing games with you my friend.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Don’t let pride or nerves stand in the way of you saying how you really feel. For too long now, you have been trying to do the right thing, when in actual fact you have been a victim of emotional blackmail.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Others may accuse you of playing hard to get, but you and I know that you are just raising the bar and trying to achieve high standards. Your element of earth tells me you are ready to settle more.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
The way you see recent events and the way close ones do, make for two very different stories. Try to give them the air time to talk as aspects suggest there is much that went on that you are both unaware of.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Take on today’s challenges. They are all ones you can excel in. You begin to find yourself interested in new things which could turn out to be new career paths if you put enough time and effort into them.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Lots of people want to know what’s going on in your life, but I see you are playing your cards very close to your chest. You start to work out who you can team up with for your most exciting project yet. Ring now for a preview of work and love.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
There’s so much more to you than first meets the eye. This is proven by the loyalty new faces in your life are beginning to show you. Your element of earth brings out your need in for commitment.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but of moments. Taking a moment to take a breath can help you to realise this fact today. Someone you thought would not come back into your life, makes contact.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Try not to fall out with those you’ve only just made up with. You’ve come so far and I know you will only be angry with yourself if you do. The younger generation show you a new found respect.

Your Daily Tarot Card for November 13th

The Moon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: imagination, dreams, emotion, competition (the dogs), illusion!

Astrological Correspondence: Pisces

The Moon in all its phases represents the world of dreams, illusions, and the subconscious. Traditionally the symbol of the feminine, the card’s meaning encompasses the maternal, the Great Mother, womanhood, and cycles. The Moon is an ambivalent card, and its imagery signifies the difficulty to see things clearly: simultaneously inspiring and lacking courage, enchanting and bewildering, deceptive and receptive – all sides of the same coin. Signaling fluctuating moods and uncertainty we must pay attention to our dreams, confront our subconscious and deal with the issues that come to the surface in order to progress to a higher level of awareness. Being able to put our imagination and creative talents to good use is an added bonus. Negative qualities such as ambiguity, confusion, hidden fears, and deception can be causes for failure.

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for November 13th

The Sun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

Your Erotic Tarot Card for Monday, November 13th

The High Priestess

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The High Priestess card is a sign that you’ve recently made a big decision in your life, and you finally feel like you’ve reached some level ground. Now that you can finally breathe a sigh of relief, your sex life will feel revitalized. Everything isn’t perfect, but the positive factors far outweigh the negative ones, and you’re feeling sexually free to explore new and exciting options. Sexual balance is high on your priority list, so go out there and find the erotic yin to your yang.

Eagle

Eagle soars high enough to see the grand panorama of life, and yet has vision keen enough to spot a fish a mile away. How’s your vision? Are you seeing the big picture or are you only concentrating on the fish? Eagle is asking you to take a step back so you can once again see the whole. You’ve gotten so lost in the trees you’ve forgotten the forest.

Your Karmic Number for November 13th

Do you remember the story of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster? This 9 says that you might be losing control of what you created. Save the drama for Hollywood producers. It may seem too late to remove yourself from the madness, but it’s not. There is a glimmer of hope, if you want it. Think about what was going on in your life before you created your own soap opera. Did you feel a pang in the center of your stomach? Good, you are off to a fresh start. Remember that feeling. That’s your inner guidance helping you. Listen and let this cycle end.

Your Earth Sky News for November 13th: The 15 days of darkness hoax is back

Hahahaha! The 15 days of darkness hoax is back

Are you ready for 15 days of darkness, November 15-30, 2017? Don’t be. It’s a hoax. Earth will not experience 15 days of darkness this month.

We at EarthSky are receiving questions about the so-called days of darkness supposedly announced by NASA and supposedly coming up November 15-30, 2017.

Did NASA announce it? No.

Will it happen? No.

YouTube videos are suggesting the event will be caused by “another astronomical event, between Venus and Jupiter.” Yes, Jupiter and Venus – the sky’s two brightest planets – had a conjunction low in the east before dawn on November 13. See photos here. It was beautiful! It’s just so wrong to use this conjunction – which has happened countless times in Earth history, to the wonderment of all privileged to observe it – to perpetuate a hoax.

As for the idea that NASA has issued a “1,000-page document” on the event for the White House. Well. That’s just entirely fake.

Think about it. What would have to happen for Earth to experience 15 days of darkness? Our day-night cycle stems from Earth’s rotation on its axis around our local star, the sun. The sun shines on half of Earth for part of its 24-hour period; that’s daytime. Nighttime is simultaneously occurring on the opposite side of Earth.

For the whole Earth to undergo 15 days of darkness … what would have to happen? The sun would have to go out for 15 days? Or something would have to shroud the sun? Or pass between us and the sun?

All of those scenarios are unlikely to the point of ridiculousness, when you consider the vast size of our sun. That’s why zero days of all-Earth darkness have occurred in human history so far.

Let me say it again. It’s never happened. It’s not going to happen.

This same hoax has been rearing its head every few years, since at least 2011, when the erstwhile Comet Elenin was supposed to pass between us and the sun and cause three days of darkness. In 2014, the number of supposed “dark days” increased to six in this article from Hutzlers.com.

In 2015, an article at Newswatch33 suggested NASA comfirmation for 15 days of darkness between November 15 and November 29 of that year. The article said that – according to NASA – such an event hadn’t occurred in over 1 million years. I couldn’t find Newswatch33 online anymore; maybe it’s gone.

There were zero days of all-Earth darkness in November, 2015.

So. It didn’t go dark in 2011, 2014, or 2015, and it’s not going to go dark for 15 days in November this year.

I think it’s interesting that these “days of darkness” rumors all spring up around November and December, when the northern half of Earth is edging toward its winter solstice and shortest day of the year. Let’s face it, there are more hours of darkness out there now, for us on this half of the globe. Just remember … it’s a natural kind of darkness, a resting kind of darkness.

In fact, for the Northern Hemisphere, the earliest sunsets of the year come in early December. After the solstice, for sure by early January, the longer days will be returning very noticeably as we move toward spring and rebirth.

That’s nature’s cycle, and we can depend on it!

Bottom line: NASA did not issue a “blackout warning” for November 15 to 30, 2017. There will be zero days of total darkness for Earth this month. Day and night will continue as usual. Sigh.

Energy Gateway Tools – 11/11 Activation at Mystic Journey

Energy Gateway Tips for Chaotic Times  Connecting with the Sacred

In these chaotic and often intense times, it’s helpful to remember that positive transformation energies exist alongside the challenging ones. Example: many things in our outer world are in turmoil and uncertain. Despite this, we have an opportunity to regroup our energy and access a higher view with meditation and connecting with the sacred at the core of all things. When we do this, we bring wisdom and perspective to our experience.

On some days, like the upcoming 11/11 energy gateway and 11/18 new moon, we can benefit from additional spiritual openings and insights. New awareness can come to the surface, allowing us to see ourselves more clearly. In those moments, solutions for longstanding issues can come to light. Letting go of the old may be easier too, once we have recognized we are ready to move on and embrace new adventures.

The Sacred and Lightness of Being

Key to your progress now is staying present and conscious to what you are creating. There are many distractions and situations that could get you off track and unfocused – like dramas with people you know and on the world stage. Do your best to self-monitor where you put your energy. The more present you are, the easier it will be to pull yourself back from dramas so you can go within and connect with the sacred. A daily connection with the sacred helps you to bring a lighter energy into everyday things and interactions with others. Your life flows better, you feel more connected, and you have the inner resource to face difficulties.

Intend now that you will use the energies of this month to deepen your connection to the sacred and discover expanded ways to express your higher purpose for this life.

11/11 Next Weekend

Since it’s November with 11/11 next weekend, consider exploring sacred numbers and the symbolic importance the ancients applied in spiritual rituals and in the architecture of temples and pyramids. Chances are, you or your ancestors were alive during one of the great civilizations of Egypt or Greece, having utilized sacred symbols to mark a special day. Invite a knowing of this.

Meanwhile, trust that there is a reason for everything that unfolds, and that you can learn and grow even when you feel stuck and immobile. Use the vast amount of love and light

11:11 Gateway into Full Embodiment

Dear Ones,

From the beginning of time there have been clear moments when the Portals of Awakening open for those who are called. The 11:11 Gateway is a collective, high-vibrational opening to assist the evolution of consciousness on the Earth at this time. The new Light frequencies are enabling this 11:11 Gateway to open for you to move into your original blueprint, your most divine essence, represented through your Light Body, in oneness with All That Is.

We will offer suggestions and visualizations at the end of the message so your own guidance system can empower a Light-filled 11:11 Ceremony if you are unable to join with others. It is highly encouraged that you work with at least one other person in sacred ceremony to honor the 11:11 Portal in Time.

You have been coded within for this awakening moment. It is another step in your evolution, one with great power and support. The Archangels stand at the 11:11 Gateway to hold you in strength and courage. Those who are attracted to this time of Grace, can avail themselves of the opportunity to soar, greatly empowered by the Angelic Realms. This conscious dedicated action, in harmony with Divine Light, will accelerate the evolution of consciousness within your own life and on the planet now.

The powerful energies you have been experiencing in your lives and on the Earth since August have led to activations within your Light Body Field. The Archangels have been diligently involved and are creating greater awareness within you of the field of Light around your heart. As you know, there is a magnetic field around your heart that is in the shape of a Torus.

This sacred geometry creates a regenerating field of energy which you can purposely integrate into your heart chakra. Because of the auspicious nature of the frequencies the Earth is moving into, we have activated your Torus regeneration field to include Divine Love as the main tool of awakening your new life.

This field is the beginning point for your new Merkaba – the light body field that works for your spiritual growth and ascension. This activation strengthens your awareness of the freedom that is possible when you expand your heart energy and open these new high frequencies into the cells of your body.

Divine Union

The 11:11 Gateway opens the way to Divine Union within yourself. The Archangels stand ready to welcome you into the new creative power of exalted awareness. Retraining and guiding the fearful thoughts that may plague your days are only a prayer away. Each prayer raises your vibrational frequencies and could be the one that unleashes the critical mass for Spontaneous Evolution within your life and on the planet. Imagine that your prayer is the turning point – the key that fits the codes for your newly evolved Self.

For the past few months, the downloads of Light have been working to empower your light body. With the 11:11 gateway the integration of that Light Body will now be fully possible. The intentions you hold for this time of your life are paramount.

Remember that at your true core, you are a radiant being of Divinity. This connection is key for your new life unfolding. It is the expanding field that activates the corresponding codes which allow your light body to come into manifest form.

Regardless of the energetic manifestations, you have witnessed in your own life or in the world, this field has been developing. You are literally growing your divine human body from the inside out.

Anchor Love

Before walking through the 11:11 Gateway, know that the love you anchor in your heart is key to the activation of the light body field. Fully integrating Divine Love within your being is creating the resonance that opens the way to fully activating your Divine Human Form.

As you walk through the Archangel’s 11:11 Portal, you will be synchronizing both the higher and lower expressions of yourself to bring forth your most authentic, blended and empowered Divine Self. This is a connection to your Soul that will allow you to more fully access and express yourself with Grace and Ease, to bring forth your highest Soul’s Destiny.

Call in your Angelic support and know that you are being inspired, guided and led through the 11:11 Gateway with full honor and respect for all the work you have given to the world during this time of massive change.

A ritual prayer offering for your own personal ceremony of the 11:11

Divine Presence and the Archangels of Light:

As I prepare to be guided through this 11:11 portal of time, I ask that the Light of Divine Love clear any disharmony within my energy field. I willingly let go of the burdens of old beliefs so I may stand tall and move freely through the gateways to Unity Consciousness and into my new Light Body Field.

Within the spaciousness of my cleared energy field, I ask that it be filled with the power of Divine Love, Harmony and Unity Consciousness. I ask to receive and radiate the strength and courage to embody this Divine Light and ground the presence of Love and Healing energy into the Earth to assist its evolution.

I join with the Angelic forces and the millions of those who work in the Light of God, as we are led through the 11:11 Gateway. I know that as one is lifted up, all are uplifted. I allow new patterns of exalted Light frequencies to engage my human structure in the completion of my crystalline light body  Union within my being with the Divine.

I dance through the Light-filled gateways, feeling your guidance and knowing that loving awareness for new possibilities in my life is being provided in every moment, with every heartbeat. I awaken in your Light and embrace my Soul’s gifts being offered to me now with supreme gratitude. You are giving me the Divine Connection to greater life and I gratefully receive this. I am honored to anchor this Light into the Earth as the presence of Nature awaits my awareness.

Hold me with Love and guide me as I step through this gateway into the higher dimensions, where my most Divine Self awaits me. May I bring greater Life, Peace and Joy through my being and be a blessing for the Earth.

For these and all your blessings, I say Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

So be it, Be it so.

Your Cosmic Weather Report for Saturday, November 11th

Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

Thought for November:

‘Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn’.

Elizabeth Bury Lawrence (1644-1720)

There’s A Lot Going On!

Without doubt, it’s a busy time in the cosmos. Here are three significant astrological signposts this weekend:

1) Saturn in Sagittarius trines Uranus in Aries for the final time

This refreshing and constructive link between sensible, mature Saturn and lively, inventive Uranus has been a key pattern during 2017. Its first exact appearance was on Christmas Day, 2016.

Saturn and Uranus are dancing around all month long, making this a potentially positive phase for new ideas, product launches, coming up with fresh, imaginative ways to look at old problems, or bring cutting edge ideas into practical reality.

Saturn and Uranus meet at 25 degrees, slowly moving apart until November’s end. If you have planets or points between 24 – 28 degrees in your own horoscope, you’re likely to be in a good place to blend old and new, or traditional and modern in some way that benefits you and others.

2) November’s Moon Wobble

Today, 11th November, we have a Moon Wobble, which is  – technically – when the Sun aligns in one way or another with the Moon’s Nodes. This time, the Sun is in Scorpio, squaring off with the Nodes in Leo and Aquarius.

Moon Wobbles signal upheavals, dramas, and turbulence – emotions can feel stronger, and logical thinking weaker in the days before, and for several days afterwards. So the wobbly window to watch is from around 8th November – 15th November.

It’s not really the right time for taking important decisions that will have a lasting impact on our lives. Our thinking may be out of synch with what’s favourable in the long run. Resolving to stay calm and open-minded is a helpful way to negotiate this bumpy phase. This could require some effort.

And, just as during eclipse seasons, a Moon Wobble also signifies stormy weather, wild weather events, and often highlights the awesome, dramatic powers of nature.

The Moon’s Mean Nodes are currently at 20 degrees of Leo and Aquarius.

 

3) Big Love – Venus conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio

It’s always a special moment when the goddess of love dances with the king of the skies. Here is Venus in Scorpio, meeting with Jupiter for a glimpse of graceful hope and joy in all our romantic and social relationships. And perhaps a little smouldering passion in the shadows too.

Yet, with planets in Scorpio there could be a sting in the tail, jealousy can expand as easily as affection – but not if we’re trying our best to be aware of what’s going on.

This can be a delightful time of serendipity, so do watch for little opportunities or chance encounters – what develops from these could be very favourable to you, or even offer ways to increase your income. Scorpio is a financial sign, and Venus rules money – sometimes Venus in Scorpio likes to say ‘ker-ching’.

Financial affairs linked to foreign investments, overseas projects, or foreign business partners should thrive at this time.

Venus and Jupiter can also be giddily extravagant and hedonistic, so possibly this isn’t the ideal time to go shopping. Why not enjoy some sumptuous art, a pleasurable experience, or a stunning landscape instead?

Venus and Jupiter align between 5 – 7 degrees of Scorpio. If you have planets, points, or angles at those degrees in Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn or Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces in your own personal horoscope you may sense this seductive energy more than most.  If you have planets in Leo or Aquarius, this could be a pivotal moment for you.

Venus and Jupiter align in Scorpio between 11th and 13th November.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, November 9th

Aries

Aries
Aries

There is pleasant intensity in your relationships and interactions today, and there may be helpful resources coming your way, dear Aries. It’s an excellent time to investigate a matter further. However, as the day advances, your focus tends to diffuse. Be wary of giving off mixed signals. The temptation may be to push when someone backs away or to retreat when someone pushes you. This is not the best time for healthy relating patterns, but consider that you might only need some personal space to get in better touch with what you actually want. Plans may not move ahead just ahead, and that’s okay now. You’re in a good headspace overall.

The morning is excellent for getting to the heart of a matter, dear Taurus. Pluto helps to boost your sense of purpose as it forms a harmonious aspect to the Sun in your partnership sector. You may very well feel more purposeful through a significant other now. As the day advances, you need some rest or a break from action. Uncertainties with a friend or co-worker can be vague yet on your mind. While in a general sense you should watch that friendships don’t dissolve through unintentional neglect, if some friendships are changing or ending, this may be due to evolving interests. And, some ups and downs are not something to worry about unless the “downs” are growing to disproportionate levels. Watch also for slip-ups on the job due to distraction or daydreaming.

Gemini

Gemini
Gemini

Relationships are mutually beneficial this morning, dear Gemini. You’re in good shape for applying wisdom and experience to manage a situation. As the day advances, while it’s likely to get busier, it can also be less decisive or clear. This is due to a Mars-Neptune influence that has us questioning our actions. It’s, in fact, a useful slowdown moment – it’s a good time to reassess things or merely take a bit of time to understand what it is you truly want. Consider that it can be all too easy to believe what you want to believe (or fear) about a career or romantic matter today. It is also possible that you’re on the fence about an issue. Even if it’s uncomfortable, try to stay on that fence for the time being. You may very well need some time to process things before moving on.

Cancer

Cancer
Cancer

When it comes to a close relationship, if appreciation is due, it’s a great time to show it this morning, dear Cancer. Through a relationship or accomplishment, you can enjoy a nice confidence boost now. The Moon moves out of your sign this morning and into your resources sector, and you begin to seek out some order and predictability. As the day advances, clarity can fall by the wayside, however, and it’s best to accept this rather than fight it. Sometimes we benefit from some reassessment or slowing down, and this can be the time for doing so. Family or a home matter may involve confusing elements which can undermine your confidence or your overall happiness temporarily. Do what you can to uncomplicate your life by clearing your mind and possibly your schedule.

Leo

Leo
Leo

The Moon in your sign from the morning onward gives you visibility today, dear Leo, and a Sun-Pluto aspect this morning adds extra depth. It can also serve to boost your confidence. It’s a good time for new ideas and accomplishing more than usual. You might decide to rid yourself of something that’s outlived its usefulness since it’s easier to part with things now than it is on another day. As the day advances, you’d benefit from letting go a little, however. Uncertainty is likely, and this tends to heighten the more we push something that can’t be pushed. Money or intimate matters can be confusing now, and it’s best not to bank on something (or lend and borrow) until you have a better sense of what’s happening.

Virgo

Virgo
Virgo

You could discover a project that genuinely absorbs your attention this morning, dear Virgo, and you can make significant progress. Don’t be afraid to show your creative side now. While you’re decisive and clear this morning, as the day advances, you may want to let go of overthinking or, temporarily, of ambitious projects. However, acting on a whim may not have especially desirable results, either, as you may not be entirely in touch with your desires and timing is slightly off. In addition, others may not be clear with you today. Whether deception is intentional or unintentional, or if it involves self-deception, there is a confusing element now that may require a slowdown. It may also be best to avoid significant purchases. The Moon moves into your introspective solar twelfth house this morning, which gives you another hint to take things easy – relax, decompress, and have back at it tomorrow.

Libra 

Libra
Libra

This morning, you may come across information that helps you feel more comfortable, respected, or secure, Libra. Continuing from yesterday, you see your priorities clearly. You’re in good shape to adjust your plans so that they more accurately reflect who you are today. As the day advances, you may want to slow down and allow for some uncertainty. A Mars-Neptune aspect suggests that you don’t have all the answers just for now, and you may have been pushing your desires a little too hard. Energy levels may be below par quite suddenly, but this could also be a signal that you are not as sure as you think you are, and you need to keep things simple for the time being. Taking a short breather can help clarify things for you.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Scorpio

There is continued good energy for you to straighten out your life in some way this morning, dear Scorpio, as you feel compelled to take action to correct things that have been making you unhappy. Improvements made now are likely to be significant and lasting. Later today, take a sudden lack of energy or delay as a sign that your plans need refining, however. Life can feel more complicated, or you may feel a little drained and lacking purpose temporarily. Adjustments may need to be made to a creative project, or delays in a romantic relationship need to be dealt with and accepted. This is a time for reflecting a little before moving your plans forward.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

This morning, you enjoy continued sharp focus, dear Sagittarius. You might gain new and valuable insight into a money or business matter, or you get a fresh look at an old problem that empowers you. Later today, however, a Mars-Neptune aspect points to the need to let some things go. You could feel a little frustrated with stop-and-go energy that doesn’t suit your style. You prefer to have everything out in the open, but the day asks you to adopt a “wait and see” approach. You might find it challenging to depend on others’ actions or words, or some insecurity might keep you at home or in limbo instead of out and about. Allow yourself the extra rest you need, if this is possible, as you simply require a breather.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Capricorn

You can be quite persuasive early today, dear Capricorn. You have more influence than usual. You’re in a good position to feel stronger through your connections as well as for investigating a matter further and gaining some critical insight. As the day advances, things seem less certain, and this suggests it’s better to rest and reflect than to push ahead. Be more precise than usual in any business or even personal communication to avoid overcommitting. Take advantage of a Saturn-Uranus aspect coming into influence that helps you feel more confident about bringing your ideas to fruition, particularly related to home and family.

Aquarius

Aquarius
Aquarius

The morning is excellent for investigating a matter further, dear Aquarius, and it makes sense, as a result, to tackle the harder jobs or to manage an issue that requires more focus than usual. You have a compelling desire to resolve problems and little patience for waiting things out. However, as the day advances, some uncertainty is likely, and it’s best to avoid pushing forward against resistance. Some reflection is in order. Money matters can be unclear or complicated temporarily, particularly those connected to travel or educational pursuits. Avoid signing contracts or making solid travel plans just for the time being. Indecision about where you are going in a general sense is likely now. However, you benefit from a Saturn-Uranus influence active this week that gives you a general sense of progress.

Pisces

PIsces
Pisces

If you’ve traveled a little off course in pursuit of a long-term goal or dream, dear Pisces, circumstances are such this morning that you clearly see what you can improve, and you’re on it! As the day advances, it’s best to take your foot off the accelerator as a Mars-Neptune challenge favors slowing down and getting in better touch with our desires before going forward. You may, in fact, all too easily draw and attract situations, people, or things that drain you or leave you feeling confused. It can be challenging to feel purpose or direction for an extended period now. Just when you possess the drive to go towards something, it either becomes elusive, or you question whether you want it. Use this time for creative instead of practical activities as much as possible.

 

If You Were Born Today, November 9

You are an articulate, sensitive, and intuitive person. You can also be quite stubborn! Your mind is such that you absorb a lot of diverse information and you can be a jack of all trades. You are a true problem solver. Your sarcastic sense of humor can be biting at times. Not everyone knows that it hides a sensitive, self-protective soul. You can easily get yourself into a rut because of your rather fixed, stubborn nature. Famous people born today: Lou Ferrigno, Carl Sagan, Dorothy Dandridge, Spiro Agnew, Anne Sexton, Analeigh Tipton, Scottie Thompson.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

Jupiter transits conjunct your Sun this year, expanding your opportunities and boosting your confidence. This transit brings more awareness of moral issues and long-term goals, as well as a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn. This is a feel-good transit that boosts your popularity. Optimism is with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

This is a strong period for strengthening and supporting others as well as for building trust. Mutually beneficial relationships are in focus. This can be a pleasantly ambitious period.

There can be helpful interactions with superiors or with older or more experienced people during this period, and benefits can come as a result. There can be a choice to structure, limit, or simplify your life in a significant way that leads to major improvements in your life.

Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.

Developing existing businesses is highly favored this year. You’re in excellent shape for editing, refining, and overhauling your work and projects. Long-term alliances can be made this year. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.

This is an excellent period for enjoying new opportunities, experiences, and perspectives. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well, but you need to make extra time for downtime. Useful contacts can be made during this period.

2017 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

2018 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, November 10th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Close ones are pressuring you because they can see that a certain situation is making you unhappy. All you can see and feel is the anxiety it is causing. Use today to step away and look at the bigger picture.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
The way you look at life is changing and many of you bulls may in fact be thinking of making some of your most dramatic moves you’ve made in years. You won’t be doing it alone though, which makes this week’s events all the more interesting.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Some of the signs really do seem to be speaking for the sake of it. Try not take what others say too much to heart, especially if you know it has been said on impulse. Group events make your career a more interesting place to be.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Try distressing your life by de-cluttering. Many of you Cancerians have been gathering things you don’t really need in the home. Getting rid of them can help you see what you really need materially and emotionally.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
You have gone through so many emotions that you are finding it hard to know which are real and which you are imagining. Children bring clarity and wise words. Sometimes it takes a fresh mind to see what older faces can’t.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
You may not realise it, but subconsciously you have been building a base and it’s a good one. You didn’t know why you felt more secure, but when you look around today you will see why. You will also see what you no longer need.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Could a friendship be something more? This is something your sign is likely to have asked themselves before in the past. Take your time. Patience will give you true answers.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
You say you want changes, but do you know what these changes are? You’ve been listening to what others tell you that you need. Use the wise attitude of Saturn, he is offering to help you find the answers in your own heart.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
There’s an urgent need in your chart to make extra funds. You are trying to find ways to make your options more flexible. You can and you will, you just have to relax if you want to convince others you are worth trusting in.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
I know you are a sign who needs to be loved unconditionally. However, your communication skills need working on. Listening when others talk is the best starting point you will find.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Do you think you have been acting spoilt? Or do you think you needed to be this dramatic to get the attention of those around you? I think you need to stop and wait for others to make the next move.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Positive anything is better than a negative nothing. Stay away from people and situations that give nothing back, before you become addicted to this pain.

 

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Hermit



The Hermit denotes a need to have some space between you and the everyday hustle and bustle of our busy world. The Hermit needs to retreat. Indeed, happiness for The Hermit requires seclusion, freedom from material wants, and time for intense introspection. The answers The Hermit needs cannot be found in our physical world. The truths he seeks are internal, spiritual, and the distraction of a well developed social life can only impede his quest for his personal truths. Still, although not anything remotely resembling extroversion, The Hermit does sometimes need to share time with others; so he can both learn and teach, guide and be guided. The Hermit’s time spent amongst people depletes his energy rapidly. To avoid mental and physical overload he has to retreat from social settings quickly.

Your Personal Daily Love Tarot Card

The Fool

You deserve a partnership that deepens as you get to know each other. Wait for the person who has risen above commitment immaturity if commitment is your desire. The Fool reminds us that dating someone is not a mistake. It is falling in love and marrying them if it is not right. If your long-term relationship is encountering a difficult patch, now is the time to work together to rebuild.

Your Personal Daily Erotic Tarot Card

The Judgement

The Judgement card indicates that you’ve had some sexual hang-ups in the past, but you’re working toward getting over them. This is a period of transition, and although you’re doing the work, you may not be getting the exact results you desire. Forgive yourself for past missteps in order to take a sexual step forward today. Being afraid to express your true erotic self can even effect other areas of your life, so getting beyond your sexual inhibitions translates into a happier overall existence.

Psychic Tip of the Day

NEW SURPRISE
Your first big shock of the new year has arrived. It could be a welcome relief, but you may not know what to do with it. Were you expecting company?

Your Animal Spirit for Today

Porcupine

Porcupine has appeared in your reading today to bring a message of innocence and trust. Although Porcupine can throw quills when cornered, he is gentle, loving, and non-aggressive. Is there an area of your life that need Porcupine energy? Have you lost the ability to trust??

Brace yourself. The number 3 as it appears for you today signals that your spirit guides are close by, eager to help you with your needs. You have been on a path of taking care of yourself and your efforts are being rewarded. They have always been there, but you are in a position to sense them more now. Ask them for help with anything.

Your Daily Charm

Today’s Meaning:
A course of events that cannot be altered has been set in motion within this aspect. Accept whatever happens in the near future and do not waste your time fretting about it–you can do nothing.

General Description:
This was a favorite charm in Egypt, worn in order to frustrate magicians, sorcerers and evil wishers from bewitching the wearer and stealing the soul from the heart; for it was the general belief that if the soul left the heart, the body would soon fade away and perish. The ancient Egyptians also believed that, after death, the heart was taken, in the underworld, and weighed against the symbols of the law; if found perfect, it was restored to the body, which at once came to life again and enjoyed everlasting felicity.

Crack the Cookie

The Wisdom of Buddha

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

Your Monthly Horoscopes for November 2017

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

It would serve you very well indeed to keep a sense of humour to the fore this month. Close ones seem to enjoy giving you the run around. What you’re about to find out though, is that you hold the power to make your own decisions. Don’t ignore this fact, but use it to get what you could not obtain last month. News of a baby links to major changes which should give you more ability to see what has really been going on in the lives of your close ones this year.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Family have not been easy to deal with and you may have had to pay out for something or someone that was not your responsibility. Games are being played in love, but it’s vital that you don’t join in with them. Your house of work is full of opportunity but you may be required to pay for something you don’t feel is your responsibility. By the 22nd you will realise why it is worth doing so.  An ex is on your mind for all the wrong reasons. Beware of getting in contact until you can work out why you are thinking about them.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

You begin this month with the Moon trying to convince you to get back in contact with those from your past. You will learn over the course of this month that you have friends and supporters in high places who are ready, willing and able to help you shape your life to your true needs and desires. Jealousy in love mid-month could well be your undoing if you’re not careful. Know how far is too far to go when making accusations you have no proof of. It is clear from the placing of Mercury in your chart that your imagination is working overtime.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

With your house of love looking full of mischief, yours is the sign others will be watching. Just make sure you know what to keep behind closed doors, remember what happened last year Cancer! The chance to try your hand at something you had given up is looked upon favourably by the stars. In fact, the majority of your sign should be feeling full of fresh hope and inspiration. Don’t entertain the childish behaviour of family any more. Back away until they learn how to behave.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

You have been focusing on the little things and ignoring the big things. It’s time to bring your life back into some semblance of order. You know exactly who has been taking advantage of you and it’s time to put your foot down. Time spent going over paperwork and financial figures between the 12th and 18th can help you turn an average month into an above average one. Friends turn into lovers for some of your sign and November marks a time where you no longer worry about what looks right, only what feels right.

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

I see from your stars you have had so much to cope with lately. Luckily for you, help is on hand from the 5th and you see the return and support of those who last month were ‘otherwise engaged.’ Knowing what you want from your career can help you skip the queue between the 20th and 28th. You find out you have friends in high places and no longer have to do things in the way other expect. If you were hoping to tie up a deal then this is the time you should do it.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

With the relationship sector of your chart demanding more of your time and attention, you are going to be feeling the need for questions and answers. Try not to accuse close ones of things you have no proof of, or it could well be your undoing. Knowing where you need to be professionally, can go a long way to you improving your reputation and repairing that damage caused last month. Your daily routine is under constructive change and you start to realise you want to and can simplify your life.

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Don’t ask for things you don’t actually want just to test close ones. It would be far better for you to relax into November and just to wait and see what each day will bring. Unexpected travel after the 19th makes this a month you will not forget in a hurry. You’ll be making new friends which will last a lifetime and which are sure to lead to some unforgettable travel in the months ahead. Jupiter helps you to replenish missing funds. Just be careful of lending money to family. You are unlikely to get it back when they say.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

This is an excellent week to try and break bad habits. The stars are on your side for successful outcomes. I know that you have a full social calendar, but don’t you want to arrange some downtime to think about the path you want your career to take? Taking time out to focus on yourself is the key to you feeling more confident about where your life is going. An argument in the family around the 25th should not really concern you. Try not to get involved if you don’t have to. A more psychic nature for the last three days of the month tells you much.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

Try not to tell tales on your close ones or it will come back on you. It would be far better for you to spend your time on tying up the many loose ends which October left for you. Trips you make for personal reasons make you very emotive and force you to do a lot of soul searching. Try to be more honest with yourself my friend. It is the only way your heart can give your head the answers it needs. Don’t be afraid to commit to training which will benefit your career. Mars sees you like a sponge absorbing facts this month.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Stop leaving such important tasks until the last minute, or you will cause yourself unnecessary stress. Your sign is known for their ability to handle more than one thing at once. Try to make a game plan for yourself sooner rather than later and you’ll soon see that you’re firmly back in the driving seat. A new attraction after the 17th makes you question what you thought you wanted from your personal life. Take your time, there is much for you to learn this month before you make any permanent personal decisions my friend.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

An unpredictable mood is making it hard for you to know what you want or who you should trust. Try to trust in yourself and what you want. You have put your own needs to one side for so long that you have forgotten how to make yourself a priority. Preparation is everything in your work over the coming days and weeks so make sure you go over what you know, even if you think you are well prepared. It’s the key to you coming across as the ultimate professional. Travel plans you make for the end of this year say a lot about where you want your future to lead.

 

Your Dark Stars: Horoscopes for November 2017

Jane Lyle, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

ARIES
Do you have a quirky goal or unusual ambition? Are you and a group of friends trying to achieve something special? If so, now’s the time to focus on whatever is close to your heart, and ignore those who’re trying to rain on your parade. And, of course, with Mars in your opposite sign, Libra, you’ll have to find tactful ways to deal with your critics, and subtle ways to sidestep anyone who is actively trying to block your progress. Mid-November could be particularly irksome, while a stand-off at the end of the month is also dramatic – yet could be avoided if you resolve to remain icily calm – easier said than done, admittedly. An old lover or friendly ex-partner could turn out to be very helpful to you at this time. Perhaps there’s still a little spark there? Meanwhile, some heartening financial news, offers of support, or a shy, new admirer promise to put a smile on your face.

TAURUS
Much of November is all about other people. How do you feel about your relationships? How do others feel about you – do you have any idea? For some of you the possibility of a shimmering romance is deeply alluring. Your more poetic side is activated by November 4th’s powerful Taurus full Moon, a Moon of strong feelings,  deep attractions, music and cake. This theme also activates your intuition and artistic flair, something you’ll want to pursue now, and during the year ahead. Your challenge is to keep things flourishing in a creative, spiritual sense while avoiding anything involving dubious get-rich-quick schemes or risky liaisons with strangers. Something magical could appear mid-month, when Venus and Jupiter align – do welcome whatever arrives on your doorstep, but don’t feel bad if you want to take a little time to process your thoughts and feelings. It’s the right thing to do.

GEMINI
Thought-provoking conversations and surprising news are sprinkled throughout November.  But you may not know what you really think until things come to a head at the Gemini full Moon in early December. Mars in charming Libra is boosting your creative, playful side – and if you’re single some exciting attractions could pop up out of nowhere. Some of you fancy taking a few risks – if these involve any kind of financial gamble, take great care and be exceedingly cautious. Meanwhile, other interesting possibilities are brewing as you question current goals, and review the way you earn your living. There are lucky chances around, especially if you want to explore a wider world – perhaps through travel, perhaps by extending your knowledge and skills. Saturn leaves your opposite sign, Sagittarius, next month. So it’s a useful time to think about where you are with your partnerships, longstanding friendships, and commitments. What would you like to nail down, and what would you like to change in 2018?

CANCER
Deep feelings and a delicious kind of restlessness rise up with the potent full Moon in Taurus on 4th November. It illuminates neglected parts of your imagination, reminding you just how fabulously intuitive you really are. This is more than just a passing mood, for with Jupiter now in Scorpio you’ll benefit from a fertile year of enhanced spiritual, romantic, and creative energy. There’ll be all sorts of domestic things to sort out now, and chances are you’ll be more involved with visitors and neighbourhood projects than usual. These familiar distractions cannot prevent you from sensing a shift in your world. Those feelings, subtle at first, strengthen as the weeks pass. So if you’d like to make changes to your intimate life, your artistic outlets, or your relationships with family and children – a clear Scorpio new Moon (18th) might be a positive time to set your intentions – if only in private. There’s no rush – why not just feed your imagination and see what happens?

LEO
Happiness lurks close to home in November. It’s a fortunate time for home improvements, or setting up a home office. But digging a little deeper, you could find inspiration in your family, or unearth a fascinating story about an ancestor. Whatever you discover this month can be the start of a new journey, as the planets encourage you to dabble in a little alchemy and learn how to blend what’s established with what’s unusual and different. A spirit of adventure refreshes relationships too – and some of you could find a very different kind of friendship or love affair this month. November’s full Moon in Taurus (4th) brings something to a head at work, or encourages you to focus on your goals – do they still matter, or are you in the mood for something fresh or unexpected? What surfaces now hints at a fork in the road ahead. When Uranus enters Taurus next May it’s opening a phase of change for your life direction and even your status. Coming events cast their shadows before them.

VIRGO
Your conversations and communications this month are way more entertaining and informative than usual. It’s quite amazing what you can find out, or how a casual chat can lead on to all manner of things – including boosting your income, finding a hot date, or finally tracking down a reliable plumber or electrician. Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio encourage you to use your wit and charm – so whether you’re on social media, or applying for a job, your subtle charisma can attract many positive situations and some magical, mystical people too. Since Mercury will be retrograde in December, you might like to strike while the cosmic iron is hot. Otherwise, you should be prepared to review things next month. If you want to plan a trip, or if someone is planning a journey to come and visit you, it’s worth making meticulous arrangements now. Mercury will be backtracking from 3rd – 23rd December in travelling Sagittarius, just in time for the festive season. So it’s worth having a Plan B up your sleeve, just in case.

LIBRA
With Mars in Libra you’ll want to get things moving. But tread softly – there’s no need to push too hard. You’ll only come up against the law of unintended consequences if you do – particularly between 15th-20th and again at the end of November. Others can send your best-laid plans flying – so it’s better to prioritise teamwork and bide your time. Your ruler, Venus, smoulders in Scorpio during November, bringing a focus on cash and values. That’s a major year-long theme anyway, thanks to Jupiter – when the two meet up mid-month you could benefit from a little windfall or some artistic and romantic inspiration. Avoid speculation though –  instead, why not try opening up to some higher thoughts and spiritual vibrations? With an open mind, you’re in a great position to benefit from exciting ideas and possibilities that crop up in conversations or during short trips. An old friend or contact could really surprise you, in a good way too. Take care of your wellbeing, keep options open, and enjoy a thought-provoking month.

SCORPIO
Your uncanny ability to sense any disturbance in the force is both strong and spooky this month, with planets and a new Moon in Scorpio strengthening your mind, body, and spirit. It’s a fortunate beginning to your astrological year ahead. Jupiter is now in your sign, bringing a year of expansiveness and all manner of possibilities. Your challenge is to refine your sense of timing, and listen carefully to your intuition. Jupiter and Neptune will be boosting our sensitivity to all things mysterious, musical, and creative now, and during much of 2018. So what you have to offer is likely to be very popular – whether that’s your imagination, quiet loyalty, or fearless emotional depths. You’ll be right in tune with the times. Others may have important things to say to you early in November, and you might need to win them over. But with Venus in Scorpio, your charisma should dazzle – particularly between 16th – 21st. Use it wisely, and use it well.

SAGITTARIUS
Saturn is coming to the end of his visit to Sagittarius, moving to Capricorn in late December. So it might be helpful to look at what you’ve learned over the past couple of years. Some of you may have felt restricted in some way, while others have worked very hard without gaining huge rewards. Yet the foundations you’ve created during this time are solid as a rock, and you’ll be able to build on them and reap rewards in the future – what you’ve established will endure. There’s a lively, flirty social atmosphere on and off this November, with enough to keep you amused. However, with your mighty ruler, Jupiter, in Scorpio now you’ll want to explore your more intuitive, sensitive side too. Paying attention to gut feelings and vivid dreams will guide you towards all manner of interesting possibilities, and perhaps prompt some new routines designed to boost mind, body, and spirit. It doesn’t have to be complicated – a daily walk or some meditation could be all you need to unlock your inner treasure chest.

CAPRICORN
Changes in how you deal with your home or family are partly out of your control. And some of your feelings, questions, and ideas haven’t been clear. But if you’ve been puzzling over what to do next, you can expect enlightenment this month when Saturn meets innovative Uranus for the final time. Your ideas may surprise you, or others. Meanwhile, much that’s creative, romantic, or even spiritual is waiting for you to notice its dreamy presence in your world. It may be hard to find a space, but it’s worth making the effort, particularly at the romantic full Moon in Taurus on 4th November. Although Mars in Libra brings action and focus to your career and your desire to forge ahead, you may find yourself questioning your current aims and ambitions. Talking to close friends will help, as will tuning in to your own instincts. As you approach the arrival of Saturn in Capricorn in December, you’re crossing a bridge into a pivotal new phase of life. Taking the time to carefully consider all your options now is the first step.

AQUARIUS
Thinking and talking about your personal world is highlighted this month. Everything from friendships to your parents – and even ancestors – seems to have a deeper meaning, or a message for you. Take it step by step, and bounce ideas and notions around a bit. What you discover has a part to play in decisions you make about your home, your ambitions, and your desire to understand how you arrived at your current situation in life. Something demands attention at home early in November, with the full Moon in Taurus. However, with a new Moon in Scorpio on 18th, you don’t need to rush into any new projects or make sudden moves – adjustments will be needed, or compromises made. With Uranus, your ruler, reversing in Aries until January 2nd, you’ll see that the past, and certain charming individuals from the past, has a vital role to play in current events. Unexpected insights or news at the end of November make it clear that flexibility is your key to finding peace of mind, happiness, and success.

PISCES
You’ve got plenty of strong, emotional support around you this month with Sun, Venus, and generous Jupiter in Scorpio. If you’d like to explore new skills, knowledge, or plan a special trip – now’s an excellent time. And even if your desires are less focused, you’ll benefit from seeing a movie with friends, or listening to music you’ve never heard before. You might even find a new friend, or romantic possibility. Feeding this side of your complex personality is healing and energising – you may have neglected it this year. Saturn in Sagittarius has brought responsibilities and hard work, and for some of you it has been difficult to see much beyond the daily grind. But Saturn is on the move, heading for Capricorn in December. Bit by bit this will change your focus and attitude towards goals and ambitions – and you’ll see just how much you have achieved too. Jupiter in Scorpio will be encouraging you to dream of far horizons until next November – so why not free your visionary Piscean spirit and go on a quest?

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, November 4th

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Your ability to make changes quickly when under pressure has been, and will continue to be, your saving grace. Be careful telling tales on those you work with. You may have to work closer to them than you think in the future.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
If you think you can, you will and if you think you can’t, you won’t. Having faith in what you want will help you to keep centred. It will also ensure you don’t get led astray by someone you’ll soon realise is a negative influence.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Don’t talk down to those you meet today. You won’t realise it, but there’s an arrogant side to your chart this week which could see you making enemies of those you have only just made up with.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
You’ve attracted such a vast array of characters into your life. There will be an opinion for all subjects if you need it. The most important question is love, but you’re the only one who can answer that, from your heart and lips.

 

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Money matters come to the fore. You find yourself arguing over the little details instead of the big ones, as certain characters try to lead you away from the mistakes they have made. Make your own plans and trust your own instincts for answers.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
You begin to feel more contented with your life and where it’s going. However, you’re still being too easily ruled by those you feel indebted to. Make a break. Be a leader not a follower. New career options are about to make you smile.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Make more of an effort to listen when others speak today. There is much you can and will learn. A new flirtation links to the workplace, so make sure you know what you want from it before you end up with an ‘awkward atmosphere.’

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Love and hate can sometimes be very close together for you, too close for comfort even. Try to take a step back today and look at things from other people’s perspectives. You will soon see you have more reason to make up than fall out. Ring now for a relationship revelation.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Try not to say negative things about those you meet, but instead work on finding out why they have said or done the things that you can’t stop thinking about. Fellow Sagittarians help you blow off some much-needed steam. Seek them out.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Our life is what our thoughts make it. You have spent far too long trying to please other people. Your element of earth has pushed you into trying to make sure everyone else is ok before you are.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Open your eyes. See the truth of the situation before you. An air sign such as yourself should have learnt by now that no situation is straight forward. Being flexible is what will make your journey a more exciting one.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Make the effort to re-read any forms or documents, especially those that will require your signature. You make friends in high places and you learn where you were going wrong in a financial issue.

 

If You Were Today, Saturday, November 4th

You possess a versatile and creative mind, yet you have a strong appreciation for concrete results. Although you indulge in the pleasures of life, you are also very hard-working and take much pride in your work and in your hobbies. You deal with pressures rather well, and you are able to right yourself quickly when things do go wrong. Inside, you are passionate and ardent. Your sensitivity and your emotional nature are not very apparent on the surface of things. You have the ability to stick to a project and make sure it functions properly. Determined and quietly bold, you have what it takes to succeed in life. Famous people born today: Matthew McConaughey, Sean Combs, Walter Cronkite, Laura Bush, Loretta Swit, Markie Post.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

A Full Moon in your Solar Return chart marks this as a year of great personal significance, when major new beginnings, endings, and activities occur. This period is the culmination of a stage of personal growth and development. Events occurring this year may bring various developments in your emotional, psychological, or spiritual life over the past several years to a head. Relationships are especially important. There can be increased activity in your professional and public life, causing a conflict with your domestic and personal goals. There is little moderation in your life this year. Connections are made or ended, or your job focus may change as one focus fades to make way for a new direction. The year ahead is certain to be a very busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.

You can be feeling good about your work, obligations, and commitments, which are seen not as burdens, but rather as purposeful activities. Independent work is favored this year. You are more disciplined and efficient.

This is also an excellent period for opening up communications with others, as you are more sensitive than usual and more willing to listen. Getting your point across is easier, as it’s not only about what specific words you choose to communicate, you intuitively express the meaning and intention behind the words. You can effectively use words to soothe, heal, and teach this year. You are also more open to new ways of looking at problems, thus it’s considerably easier to find solutions.

You have a larger than usual desire to improve and learn during this period of your life. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Your broader perspective on matters keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

There can be ups and downs in your personal relationships and romantic attachments at times this year, but ultimately your social or romantic life settles in. The same may be true of finances for many. Destabilizing circumstances can be part of the picture, but these motivate you to improve and level out your situation.

There can be helpful interactions with superiors or with older or more experienced people during this period, and benefits can come as a result. There can be a choice to structure, limit, or simplify your life in a significant way that leads to major improvements in your life.

You’re taking your responsibilities to others more seriously this year. You could find that you’re attracted to unusual pleasures and objects this year, but that you ultimately know how to save and spend wisely.

On business and financial levels, you’re best off if you develop and improve existing businesses than breaking entirely new ground. In fact, you’re in excellent shape for editing, refining, and overhauling your work and projects. Long-term alliances can be made this year. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.

Physical attractiveness and energy levels are excellent during this period. You’re more comfortable with yourself and this increases your popularity.

This is an excellent period for getting organized. You’re in better shape than usual for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities. You are taking your social or romantic life more seriously this year although there can be some ups and downs as you make important changes. Useful contacts can be made during this period.

 

2017 is a Number Seven year for you. Ruled by Neptune. This is a year of preparation, chance, and refinement. It is not a time of dramatic changes. Instead, it’s a year when reflection on the past is helpful, and when refinements to your life path should be made. It’s a good year to study and analyze. Unexpected twists to your life story and “chance” meetings are probable. Advice – take stock of your life in order to prepare for more exciting years to come, examine the past and plan for the future, get in touch with your deepest needs and uncover your personal power, don’t strain yourself or actively try to expand.

2018 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, November 5th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
You’re sick of being lied to. You experienced it in the past and you’re not going to go through it again. What you have to do first, is prove that those around you were telling tall stories. Or do you? Move on. Don’t look back.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Travel brings new relationships and also puts a very large smile on your face. You begin to experience new aspects of your personality and you like what you see! Don’t rule out planning new journeys at the last minute.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Stop trying to make things more complicated than they have to be. Try to focus on enjoying the simple things in life. It will help you to get your life into perspective. A flirty feel could see some of you saying things you’ll regret.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
The feeling that you need to get things tied up is strong. There will be a fear of starting new things, but with good reason. You want to know that you have cast yourself in a professional light. Don’t worry, you have!

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
I know you’ve been feeling out of your depth, but I also know that you don’t have to be. Trust in your instincts and do what they tell you today. You have all it takes to be successful, both personally and professionally.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Happiness comes not from having much, but from being content with little. You know you aren’t materialistic, but you come across that way when you test close ones to see how far they will go for you.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
You’ll find it hard not to believe some of the rumours going around this week. Act only on what you see, not what you hear. Many of the signs are talking for the sake of it thanks to the arrogance of Mars.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Work and play both take centre stage and you begin to see that you were experiencing the life others told you to live, rather than the one you wanted. You’re back though Scorpio and you’re stronger than ever.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
You can do anything you want if you stick to your plans Sagittarius. Part of the problem has been that you’ve spent too much time doing things that look right, instead of the things that feel right. Ring now so I can help you find your self confidence.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Sometimes, it’s only when we don’t know what we are doing that we discover the right path in life. Old contacts hold the key to you sorting out new problems in business and financial areas. Ring me so we can put the magic back into your month.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
I’m so happy it’s not the beginning of the month any more. You’ve had chance to enter November now and get an idea of what’s expected of you and you’re about to learn that you can easily do what others expect.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Regretting wasted time, leads to more wasted time. Knowing what you want is half the battle. All you have to do is admit your dreams and not the aspirations of those around you. Family proves demanding.

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Chariot



The Chariot is the representation of Victory and the personality traits required to attain victory. The Chariot indicates self-awareness and control. Courage—the ability to overcome fear and confront the unknown head on–is a primary ingredient of any victorious campaign and is denoted by the Chariot. So too is force of will. Often success is as much the product of will power and a refusal to surrender as it is anything else. The Chariot also represents the healthy personality of someone who believes in themselves; someone who can take control of the situation and bring events to a positive end. His successes come in competition with others.
