November - The Month Ahead
Welcome to November!
Venus has moved into Sagittarius (1 Nov - 26 Nov) and here we find the planet of attraction, love, and money in an expansive and fun-loving mood. For all signs, the invitation here is to celebrate life. In Sagittarius, Venus is a freedom-loving traveler in a sequinned skirt. You'll find yourself drawn to or open to new experiences and new people. You'll want to expand your artistic repertoire if you're an artist. This is a great time to let curiosity guide you into creative terrains, like sculpture or monoprinting or painting. It is also an auspicious time to revisit old passions.
For example, if you painted with watercolors as a teen or were once into scrapbooking you may feel pulled to take them up again.
If you work for yourself, you'll be thinking of looking beyond your city limits. My recommendation here is to focus on planning. Write down action steps but don't act. It's wiser to follow up with old clients and revisit old ideas while Mercury is in retrograde. This is not the time to hire people (it's ok to do so if you've worked with the person in the past), sign contracts or engage in negotiation. Feel free to do so after the 20th.
Let's talk a little more about Venus. In Sagittarius, she is in the company of benevolent Jupiter and the asteroid Ceres (representing our capacity to love ourselves and nurture others). The energy created here is joyous and the broader message is "we all have the capacity for joy".
This can be broken down further to:
Laughter is the best medicine.
Remember this as the energy intensifies this week.
Watch comedies, share funny memes and be a little silly (or a lot)!
Mars is in a square with Saturn at this time. This is a cosmic STOP SIGN. You are advised not to press harder for solutions or pursue answers. This is going to be hard I know when you consider that Mars in this aspect can feel driven and relentless. Use this time instead to plan or revisit and revise old ideas.
Juno entered Libra today so your needs within committed relationships will be highlighted this month.
Here's what I mean by needs:
For example, if Juno in your birth chart sits in an Air sign, you will require "a meeting of minds", if Juno sits in a water sign you require "emotional rapport and support".
Get clear on what you need from your closest relationships so you can identify the gifts your partner and friends have to give.
You are at the center of all your relationships, therefore you are responsible for your self-esteem, growth, happiness, and fulfillment. Don't expect the other person to bring you these things. You must live as if you are alone and others are the gifts offered to help you enrich your life. - Leo Buscaglia
Now is not the time for impulsive action. Don't let the horses out of the stable or the cats out of the bag. Sit with your questions. Marinate a while.
I'll be back later this week with a FULL MOON in Taurus post.
