Although there will be some big shifts taking place this month, things may still feel like they aren’t up to full speed as aggressive Mars enters dreamy and introverted Pisces on November 15 and Mercury, the planet of communication, goes retrograde in Sagittarius on November 16. However, there will be something that we can celebrate and that’s when Jupiter; the planet of growth, good fortune, and optimism moves home to happy-go-lucky Sagittarius on November 8 after spending the last year in the murky waters of Scorpio. With Jupiter at home in Sagittarius for the next thirteen months, not only does it mean more abundance, adventure, and goodwill to go around (especially with Sagittarius season kicking off on November 22) but it also means that we’ll also be focusing more closely on the ethically or morally right thing to do for ourselves and others.
With this month’s New Moon in Libra (Oct 8) and Full Moon in Taurus (Oct 24) both answering to love-and-values-oriented Venus, and Venus going retrograde on October 5, we can expect October to be a month of reevaluation. No matter if we’re being called to start something new or let something go, our focus will be on whether it’s worth it. This theme will apply especially to relationships, our sense of self-worth, our personal values, and our relationship to money. Venus retrograde in Scorpio (Oct 5-31) will ask that reevaluate our desires and the power dynamics within our most intimate relationships while Venus re-entering Libra (Oct 31) will ask that we reevaluate the relationships we share with others across the board.
Meanwhile, Scorpio season (Oct 23) will challenge us to dig deep and face our fears, own our shadows, sit with our emotions, and trust our intuition when it comes to connecting to ourselves and connecting with others. Truth, both acknowledging it and speaking it will be also a part of our journey this month, as communicative Mercury enters Scorpio on October 9, followed by a move into Sagittarius on October 31.
With Virgo season underway, we should see a stark contrast between the wobbly energy of last month and the more grounded energy of this month. Although Mars will be moving back into unconventional Aquarius, which should stir things up a bit; having the Sun and communicative Mercury in Virgo should help us with staying flexible, organized, and sane. And if we feel like we’ve fallen off track or off target, the New Moon in Virgo on September 9 will help us find our bearings again and get back on the wagon. Meanwhile, pleasure-loving Venus will be in all-or-nothing Scorpio, making sure that whatever or whomever we invest our time and resources into will truly be worth the trouble.
If things have felt "stop and go" thanks to last month’s eclipses and all the retrograde planetary action we’ve been getting; this month brings us some much-needed momentum. Not only is Mercury moving forward again, but aggressive Mars also turns direct; which should help us with getting plans, projects, and initiatives off the ground. Meanwhile, we’re still in eclipse season with one more eclipse to go; the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11, 2018. Under this eclipse, we should expect dramatic new beginnings, fresh starts, and life-changing opportunities that span themes that cover confidence, creativity, romance, and authenticity. With the shifts and changes that are still afoot, it’s a good thing that Mars will be moving back into grounded and responsible Capricorn by mid-month. With Mars in one of their favorite places to be, the energy in the air shouldn’t feel as jarring as it has been over the past few weeks, especially with Mars turning direct by August 27. Couple Mars grounding vibes with the earthy energy of Virgo season (August 23) and we should be able to find the motivation, energy, and the clarity to move into the next phase of our lives. Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Pisces on August 26 will stop by to help us with turning a dream into something real.
Even though Mars, the planet of action is still retrograde, that doesn’t mean that it won’t be an action-packed month. That’s because we’ve got two influential eclipses happening in July, plus Mercury retrograde. The first eclipse lands on July 12, which promises to be an emotional Solar Eclipse in Cancer. Solar Eclipses, which are super-powered New Moons, often mark profound new beginnings in our lives. As a tender and intuitive water sign, eclipses in Cancer often trigger major shifts and opportunities with themes associated with women and children, families, home and our sense of emotional security.

Although Gemini season is in full swing, the pace this month slows down significantly once the planets begin shifting into cautious Cancer, pushing us to lean on our intuition rather than making snap judgments. At the same time, active Mars will also begin its two-month retrograde; backtracking through the signs of Aquarius and Capricorn and helping us to make sure we’re not blindly following the rules in place or investing our energy into futile endeavors. Planet Neptune (dreams, illusions, compassion) also goes retrograde this month in Pisces, pushing us to see through illusions and to see things as they are. In fact, with a Full Moon in no-nonsense Capricorn happening this month as well, many of us are due for a reality check.
I know some folks may be looking for the horoscopes I do for this website each month but between the past two eclipses landing in my zones of health and work and rest and retreat, it seems the universe has had some other plans for me, which included a sinus infection that I am only recently getting over.
Additionally, I am currently catching up on my one on one clients that have had to be rescheduled as a result of my illness while working on the manuscript for my book, which has a mid-March deadline. If anything, the eclipses that lit up my chart a couple weeks ago have shown me the value of being deliberate about the responsibilities I take on. This means my monthly horoscopes are on hiatus for now.
However, you will still continue to get my daily, weekend, and monthly scopes at Bustle. Thank you all for being such loyal and longtime readers.

One message that this Moon is bringing for you for though, is the need for you to better honor your worth. That means if you've been underselling your skills or putting up with a job that undervalues you, this full moon will remind you that you can't survive this way. As a matter of fact, your focus should be on thriving, instead of just scraping by. As such, you may want to kick your job search into high gear, with an emphasis on finding something worth your while as opposed to a quick-fix kind of job. Yes, bills need to be paid, but if you keep wasting your time on menial, dead-end jobs it won't get you any closer to where you want to be. Trust that if you're putting in the work and you've taken a shot at getting something you want, the universe will respond in kind. That's why on November 5th, communication planet Mercury will be moving into Sagittarius (your zone of travel, opportunity, and education) to help you build up your faith, so you can see what's really possible. Mercury will be motivating you to open your mind and shift your perspective. Your options will no longer seem as bleak as they may seem right now. You’ve got to be open to something new though.
By November 7th, Venus – the planet of love and money – moves into Scorpio; your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth. In matters of the heart, Venus could help you with attracting a deeper, soulful kind of love as the casual flings won’t cut it. Though if you’ve been down on love, hosting Venus in this area of your chart could also help you with healing heartbreak and moving on. Sometimes it takes a bit of bottoming out to get to a place where you can start fresh. Look to the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, to help you kick start your emotional healing. Hint: part of this work may mean that you’ll have to come to terms with your dark side, as well as beginning the process of owning those pieces of you that you’ve been taught were bad, ugly, or undeserving. Since this zone is also connected to money, this new moon could also help you with achieving financial freedom. Strategize ways that you (and your partner, if applicable) can pay off debt and get your books in order. If you do have a partner, the two of you may decide to pool your resources together at this time for a joint investment, like buying a house or condo. If you need a loan, this moon can help. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, putting the spotlight back on your sense of adventure. Spending time in a different country or city, taking classes, and pursuing new experiences will rejuvenate you. Meanwhile, Neptune going forward in Pisces (your zone of retreat and healing) on November 22nd, helps to restore your faith in something bigger.
Taurus: Like Michael Jackson once said, “you are not alone”. There are people in your corner that are ready to love and support you and this month, your job is to connect with them. Though in order to do so, you may have to be willing to let go of the notion that it’s just you against the world. That’s why the Full Moon in Taurus, landing in your zone of confidence and self-image on November 4th, will be motivating you to heal and release your old wounds. At the same time, some of your relationships may experience a shakeup as you’re also called to let go of stagnant and self-limiting connections. When communicative Mercury moves into Sagittarius on November 5th and into your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth; you’re asked to dive deep into the spaces of your heart and soul to see the ways that you may have been giving your power and attention away to the unworthy. Mercury will be asking that you get more comfortable with your intuition, as ignoring it will only lead to you feeling more mistrustful of yourself and others. The key here is using your intuitive power to suss out the people that are truly genuine while keeping the fugazi ones at arms length. Writing down your feelings in a journal or discussing them with a therapist could be cathartic for you. If you’re a creative type, you might also opt to work out these thoughts and feelings in a creative piece. In terms of finances, Mercury will also help you to work out a budget to improve your savings or reduce your debts.
By the 7th, Venus (your patron saint) moves into the deep waters of Scorpio and into your zone of partnerships. With Venus’ help, you could meet someone with commitment potential, if single and looking, while those of you already in relationships could re-devote yourselves to the love you have. Since this zone also covers business partnerships, you should also look towards joining forces with others that can help you to make more money. That’s why the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th will be helping you to establish the right connections, in your professional life as well as your romantic life. However, if relationships have been a sore spot for you, look to this moon to help you with clearing space for the kinds of people that you want and deserve to have in your life. Know that you don’t have to settle or cling to “almost, not quite right” relationships out of fear of being alone. With Scorpio it’s either all or nothing, no halfway. This theme of all or nothing will be especially strong come November 21st, when the Sun moves into Sagittarius, continuing the work that Mercury in Sagittarius started. Over the next few weeks, while the Sun travels here, you should expect to do a soul recon mission of sorts, as the cosmos asks you to get in deeper touch with your truest desires. Why do think that you shouldn’t have what you want? Is it because you’ve been taught to accept a life full of hardship? Allow Sagittarius season to help you to reconnect to abundance, true love, and pleasure.
Gemini: This month you may find out that it’s all about learning how to balance your needs with the needs of others without losing yourself or making yourself crazy in the process.

As an intellectual Air sign, you often live in your head and get uncomfortable when it comes to feeling your feelings, but this full moon will push you to pay attention to them. As you pave the way for new things and experiences to enter your life, know that you have to be willing to let go of anything that isn’t working for you. Under this moon, this could mean an attachment to the past, an old emotional wound, or a build-up of resentments. If you find yourself feeling particularly unable to let go or move on, this moon could also inspire you to seek the help of a therapist or spiritual guide, especially as Mercury (your patron saint) moves into Sagittarius on November 5th and into your zone of partnership; encouraging you to build a winning team. On the 7th, pleasure loving Venus moves into Scorpio, your zone of health, work, and routine.

On the 18th, the New Moon in Scorpio steps in to help you with getting your sh*t together. Consider this moon a gift from the universe as you’ll find that getting back on track when it comes to a fitness program or a daily schedule will be much easier to do. At the same time, since Scorpio is a sign that loves to purge anything that’s considered dead weight, you could also use this moon to help you initiate a mind and body detox. This could include cutting back on alcohol or quitting smoking, as well as clearing out any clutter that you may have in your office or living space. Either way, the goal is to practice taking care of your needs first, so you can operate from a full place instead of a depleted one. On the 21st, the Sun moves into Sagittarius, bringing the attention back to partnerships. In terms of love, some Gemini could meet someone new while those of you that are already attached, may find yourselves focused on your shared goals or interests.

Since Venus is also connected to creative endeavors and money, you may be able to draw in some extra cash by putting yourself and your talents out there in a big way. Again, the theme for this month is to show up and show out! By the 18th, the New Moon in Scorpio swings through, pushing you to deep dive into your passions.

Under this moon, you could decide to make a swift exit from your current job, especially if you haven’t been feeling happy at what you do.

Should you find yourself looking for a new job, this moon can help you to use the reputation you’ve built to leverage a better opportunity. And if you’re happy where you are professionally, this full moon could also help you to garner attention and accolades from some very influential people.
