Welcome to the month of gratitude, November. Feliz día de los Muertos! While some may shed a tear for loved ones passed, we can all celebrate with gratitude the memories of their precious time on earth and all the wonderful things they left us with, buried deep in our hearts.
“Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there. I do not sleep.” – Mary Frye
November begins with a square, which is an aspect of challenge, between Mercury in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. This can be a confusing time and passive-aggressive behavior can be strong. Some may even feel a bit paranoid under these conditions. But it is an excellent time for strategizing.
The New Moon on Thursday at 12 degrees Scorpio, in opposition to Uranus can bring emotional breakthroughs. This New Moon is a time to seriously consider what you are telling yourself at the deepest level, what is your foundational reality? Are you building your current life on untruths or negative talk? Take a step back from what looks like a shiny new promise or distraction and be sure this is something that aligns with who you are really striving to be. Beware of those who would convince you otherwise. The temptation will be strong to grab onto something that pops up with what sounds like a good idea, but it’s not really.
Finish up old projects early in the week and start new ones on Thursday. As Mercury enters Scorpio on Saturday, there’s a strong desire for more substance in conversations and what you choose to watch on tv or read. You won’t settle for small talk and surface excuses from anyone. Be mindful that although you may see through someone’s “stuff” they may not be able to, so try not to push too hard.
As the week ends with Venus and the Moon moving into Capricorn, seek time with friends and family that have endured over the year and catch up. You’ll appreciate (or be their) grounding influence.
Have a lovely week!
Aries (March 21-April 20) With all the energy of the New Moon and Mars in your 8th house this is a week of planning for your future. Credit, debt, investments all need a shake out and a shake up once in a while to make sure you’re on track. Carve out some quiet time alone to diminish distractions that always seem to want to pop up. It’ll be worth it. (Then enjoy some play time!)
Taurus (April 21-May 20) A look back at your job history builds your confidence. You’re all about harmony and getting along, but don’t be dismayed by a mid-week confrontation. This is a blessing in disguise- it may shake you out of a rut and help you create better routines and systems to manage your time to allow for relationships to grow. See it for the opportunity it is and embrace it.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Recent expenditures require a new budget and possibly a loan. There is always an answer somewhere, and sometimes in the least likely of places (or at least to us!) Try not to stress. Saturday as your ruling planet changes signs and sextiles Venus, all is well and someone close is able to show you a solution that was right under your nose the whole time.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) This could be a good time to step out of your comfort zone and think outside the box, or more to the point, your “dating box”. Someone you may find irritating at first may turn out to be a good friend. Or more… if you’re available to try dating someone really, really different than your typical choice for a potential partner. It all depends on how open-minded you’re willing to be.
Leo (July 23-August 22) Plans for the upcoming holidays shape up now and there’s a lot to look forward to. Bringing everyone together for the first time in a long time gives you the chance to be your most creative so make it grand when it comes to hosting an event. There are loads of sites you can google for ideas and inspiration- creative ways to make things special, even if you’re on a budget. Go for it!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) This week might seem kind of like a cluster in the communication department. But you’ll get to the bottom of the confusion very quickly as long as you keep a detached investigative approach. Don’t assume anything. And definitely don’t take things too personally. Own up to your part if it’s yours to claim, but then get past it and on to the solution.
Libra (September 23-October 22) While Mercury has been in his last few days in Libra trining Jupiter, your gift of gab has gotten you into many distracting but enlightening conversations. But this week, as it squares Pluto you may feel as if you’re speaking another language. Be patient and more intentional with your words. They will have a powerful impact you’re not expecting.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) So much Scorpio in the sky. New Moon, Mars and Mercury all in your sign make you magnetic, mystical and probably a bit more impatient than usual. So enter into this week ready to take a step back from a situation if you need to- take a few breaths and regroup. Avoid acting on suspicions before getting all the info. Usually you’re right but this week others could surprise you.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) A new collaboration is exciting however it may be costly. Make sure you absolutely need an item before splurging and possibly going over budget. And hey- instead of going over budget, why not figure out another way to get what you want? As creative as you are, you’ll come up with something…
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) This is a super sociable week for normally introverted Capricorn. Creativity can turn into a business very quickly, or you may be asked to contribute as a consultant for an organization that needs your perspective. Enjoy the attention and being in demand, but also protect your time and be careful not to take on more than your schedule can accommodate.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Big decisions need to be made this week around your career so take some time to think hard about what you truly want and where you want to be in the near future. If you’ve been wanting to launch a business, make an action plan and start taking those steps now. If you’re staying where you are but looking to move up, have a talk with those who can help you plan next steps.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) If someone isn’t taking you as seriously as you’d like, ask yourself why that is. Is there something you are projecting that is not in line with who you know you are at the core? Sometimes a nudge from spirit has to come in the form of tension with another. So see this as a gift and pay attention.
