ARIES/ARIES RISING ♈︎
In some ways, you are still largely dependent on others this month. It seems like no matter how much you need or want your space and freedom you are still relying on other people for some things. The New Moon on November 11 is a reset button in connection with your intimate relationships. Deep bonds are initiated or connections are broken. You need to sort through your feelings and communicate to avoid further conflicts. You can find ease and comfort if you give up a bit of that ‘’independant at all cost’’ mentality. Some details are escaping you and your own motivations could feel unclear. You need to have faith in the elements that are outside of your control. Pay attention to the information coming via dreams or your unconscious. How can you maximize your need for growth and independence and channel it? What is your vision? Once you know exactly what you are searching for, you will be able to formulate a solid plan to get there.
TAURUS/TAURUS RISING ♉︎
We are now six months away from your birthday. In the zodiac, the sign of Scorpio is at the exact opposite to the sign of Taurus. A mirror image.The Taurus-Scorpio axis has to do with accumulation or retention (Taurus), and evacuation and transformation (Scorpio). Both Taurus and Scorpio are highly sensual signs that perceive the world through their senses. Taurus’ primary concern is with grounding and solidifying its place in the physical world. You are a practical beast with a no non-sense attitude. You instinctively know how to find peace and stability. Scorpio’s focus, however, is on the intensity and power that comes with destroying old structures, favouring renewal through transformation. And that, my dear Taurus, is the kind of experience you are going through at the moment. Something is shifting as you begin a two year process of deep changes. Shedding an old skin can feel good but it can also feel extremely awkward in the first stages. Our resistance to change only aggravates what is trying to happen and a period of discomfort is normal. You can find some peace connecting with your community through a spiritual practice.
GEMINI/GEMINI RISING ♊︎
The recent opposition of Uranus to your ruler Mercury kick started a period of creativity for you. This could be a time when you crave more vitality and beauty in your day-to-day life. In a broader sense, you are aligning with your calling but to do that, you need to trust your inspiration. Trust that even though you might not be doing what you want for a living, you can still start on a creative project. There is a sort of divine discontent connected to your career or what you do for money, but it is a necessary passage to understand what you need. There are also some obligations that you have towards others that are keeping you from taking a leap of faith towards yourself and your dreams. Is there a way you can make more space for play, improvisation and curiosity on a daily basis while still being responsible towards the ones you love? There is an opportunity at the moment to heal some of the root causes of the discontent you feel towards your career, and it starts with having faith in yourself. Here is a great article about passion and doing what we love: http://markmanson.net/passion
CANCER/CANCER RISING ♋︎
Dear soft one, you are still undergoing major renovations in the heart department. This has been an ongoing process and for some of you it started around 2008. You have largely reinvented yourself and how you relate to others. To some extent, talking about these wounds have had a healing effect on you but it has also helped a lot of people around you. Deep down, you are an artist. Whether you think of yourself as one or not, you have the emotional intelligence of a poet. And sometime, that means being a guiding hand to others in their dark journey back to love. There is a quality in the way you express yourself that acts like a balm to those who are heart-broken. And it comes from all the wisdom you have acquired through your own heart breaks. But it also comes from being able to translate those wounds so that others can relate. You are carrying within you some nurturing qualities that are much-needed in the world. The question is: How can you be serious about others emotional storms without being carried away by them? How can you be a light house without being destroyed by the hurricanes? The process of restructuring how you deal with these questions has already begun. You are creating boundaries between you and others because your health and well-being depends on it. And you want to continue sharing your love in a way that feels healing and grounding for you.
LEO/LEO RISING ♌︎
The pressure is on to deliver the goods, darling. Your talents are in high demand, and November gives you an audience. It will be a busy month, and if you can reconcile all the loose ends and still make some time to nurture yourself, you will be one happy camper. Your ability to make money is crossing paths with your passion in a big way. Everyone aspires to do what they love for a living but reality is not always aligned with our dreams. You are invited to step into that possible future—for a small price, of course. You might have to use some of your savings to fund a project or have to rely on a generous hand to support your work. The real price, though, will come in the form of labour. You need to have a good plan in place. The next 2 years will test how serious you are about your talent, about your calling and about the means you choose to build your empire. You will be tested to see how dedicated you are about staying on the path you have chosen. And this month, is a glimpse into what that means. Being serious about what you love, and loving the work that it takes to get there.
VIRGO/VIRGO RISING ♍︎
“Under construction” is a great sign for you at the moment. You are beginning some major internal renovations. To help you along in this new phase, here is some background on the word renovation. Used in the early 15th century, the Middle English word that eventually became renovation (renovacyoun) referred exclusively to spiritual rebirth. It is derived from the Latin renovare, as re + novare means to make new, to reinvigorate; refresh; revive. A big part of your renovations have to do with the perimeters of your heart. Strengthening your ”love organ” so that you can make wiser decisions about who you let in and who stays out. The emotional disillusion that you have experienced with other people has brought you here. Inside yourself, learning to love yourself inside and out. Giving shape to your internal landscape molding it so that you know precisely where you stand when you invite someone in. Standing from a place of power.
LIBRA/LIBRA RISING ♎︎
Libra, you want it all. The beauty, the relationship, the money, the fulfilling social life and the freedom to come and go as you want. Yes, I said THE word: Freedom. The word freedom is usually not used to describe Libra who like to be soooo acommodating. It is taboo for Libra to claim their need for space since the urge is always towards pair bonding. Libra would rather BE two, but something is happening. You are learning to find satisfaction in going your own way without approval. You are realising that there are some things you would rather do on your own. You are slowly coming to grasp with the fact that your self-worth has nothing to do with the feedback you receive from others. It might feel really awkward at first. It might feel like you are stepping on other people or that you are being inconsiderate. And you probably are, but you will adjust. On another note, keep a close watch on how your thinking is affecting your health and make sure to communicate any resentments or difficult emotions as clearly as possible. You do not want the darkness to fester inside.
SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING ♏︎
Scorpio, you came into this world when the days get shorter and the light slowly disappears from our lives. You understand darkness and you are fearless when it comes to seeing the underbelly of life. In the last 3 years, you became an expert in dealing with some very difficult parts of yourself. A sort of training camp to see what you are made of and how much pressure you are capable of sustaining. And guess what? You made it out to the other side. With a few good scars but also with more power and more self-knowledge than ever before. You can be proud of the work you have accomplished to shed some old self-defeating habits. Your focus is now turning towards your resources as you find better ways to secure your place in the world. And somehow stepping outside of yourself and into a larger group might be exactly what is needed. Your ability to generate revenue is closely linked to your collaborations. You will be able to maximize your potential if you join forces with others towards a creative goal. Brainstorm with your friends. Invite others in your magic circle.
SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING ♐︎
Everyone knows how much freedom is important to you. You are a wild spirit who like to come and go as you please. No one would dare make demands on you if it made you feel trapped in some ways. Except the new guy in town. Maybe you didn’t get the memo yet? His name is Saturn, Lord of Time. Here is the thing, he was looking for a place to live for the next couple of years and he decided that you would make a good roommate. It doesn’t need to be difficult. In fact he might have a really beneficial influence on you in the long run, if you make a few small adjustments. He is quite demanding when it comes to getting your shit together but he might reward you…with more responsibilities. He will make sure that you are not holding on to some unrealistic pipe dreams and he will test you. Fortune will come if you humbly focus on your craft and get better at what you do. And that could come in the form of teaching what you already know. Clean out the internal and external clutter, and delineate a good strategy for where you would like to be in two years from now. Saturn likes a good plan and you have to respect the dude. He is your guide and mentor through this rite of passage into a more mature version of your wild self.
CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING ♑︎
It is usually hard to get a Capricorn to change his direction once his is mind made up. It’s not that you are not flexible, far from that. But you know what you want and usually you have the wisdom required to make the proper decisions. Perpetually progressing towards your goal with the iron will. Except now. You might be doubting your own stoic motivations. A small voice within you is whispering a poetry that feels unfamiliar but also very soothing. We could name that little voice Inspiration. Here is the thing: Inspiration often comes when we have a crisis of faith but sharing her is often the best way to restore it. Inspiration doesn’t have a linear trajectory. It is a twisted up and down road with many dead ends. And it can feel unsettling for a Capricorn who usually delineates his trajectory. By letting inspiration take over your mind you might be able to reach some of your goals in ways that are not foreseeable from a practical perspective.
AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING ♒︎
Love has been the word on your mind all summer. It can feel strange for you to be spending your mental energy on fluffy thoughts. Especially that you have so much work to do, and that work might of suffered a little. But it feels good to share common interest. Teaming up might be the solution to bring in more revenue. An important thing to keep in mind as you share your resources, is that you are getting a fair deal. Make sure that you are not giving up on your integrity and beliefs when you take part in a group project. Make sure also that responsibilities are shared equally so that you don’t end up with the grunt of the work. Even though you are doing things from the perspective of your higher ideals, not everyone sees it that way. Delineating responsibilities within the group might save you headaches down the road.
PISCES/PISCES RISING ♓︎
How much are you actually surrendering of yourself to succeed in the world? You are in a period of your life where the sacrifices required of you might exceed what is humanly possible. The funny thing is that you might not even realise it. Being the less selfish sign of the zodiac means that people can make unrealistic demands on you and you don’t even notice how ridiculous it is. You will accommodate generously and most of the time from a dedicated and genuine interest to share your wisdom. The push and pull you are feeling at the moment is happening between yourself, your career and a special person in your life. You might feel divided between the responsibilities you have taken in your work and the demands of a loved one. You are on the back burner because you put yourself there. Pressure is on to deliver the goods. Drawing boundaries to know where you end and where other begins might be a smart idea, even if it’s just a draft.
