astrology-report-october-2018.jpg

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.

August-2018-Horoscopes.jpg
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.

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.

Monthly Horoscopes for November 2017

november.jpg

Aries: Your finances continue to be a focus as November opens with a Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of income, self-worth, and possessions on November 4th. Under the influence of this moon, an income stream could come to an end or you could be pushed to change your financial habits. 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. Thanks to the Full Moon in Taurus (November 4th) that lands in your zone of rest, endings and healing; part of this work will require that you address your needs at the outset. 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. With Venus here, this could be a good time to ramp up your self-care regimen by making sure to get good foods to eat (treats included) and enough beauty rest. When it comes to your professional life, Venus could also help you to find a new job or your workday to go much smoother.

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. With Mercury also in Sagittarius, look to establishing relationships that offer something new for you to learn or experience. Though that doesn’t mean that everyone is invited to the party though. Connecting with people one-on-one will make for genuine, longer lasting relationships. On the 22nd, when Neptune moves forward again in Pisces, your zone of career and achievement, things won’t seem so foggy or uncertain like before.

Cancer: You’ve got big plans, but how willing are you to do what it takes to follow through on them? This might be the question that needs an answer this month as the planets bring attention to your long range plans and the things you’re truly passionate about. Your journey begins on November 4th, with the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of friendship, hopes, and wishes. With the help of this full moon, you’re pushed to release any doubts or fears that you have around moving forward and pursuing what you really want. If you haven’t figured out by now, the universe is ready for you to stop playing yourself small. That means it’s time to grab the bull by its horns (thank you, Taurus) and don’t let go. This may even mean breaking away from your tried and true methods in favor for a fresh approach. On November 5th, Mercury, the planet of details and communication, moves into Sagittarius; your zone of work, health, and routines. With Mercury at home in this zone of your chart, its job will be to help you work out the fine details in your planning and strategy. This may include looking at ways to develop and hone your marketable skills, as well as devising ways to simplify your life. Hint: it’s time to cut back on the distractions. Though don’t think it’ll be all work and no play this month, as sweet and charming Venus finally leaves your home zone on November 7th and moves into Scorpio – your zone of love, creativity, and fun.

Venus will be on hand to remind you how irresistible you are, which means that you could start a promising romance over the weeks that follow, while those of you already in relationships could find yourselves being healed through the power of love. 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. When it comes to the progress you make this month, it’s all about focusing on the things that touch your heart. Keep this in mind – if you’re heart isn’t 100% into something; whether it be an offer, a project, or a person – leave it alone. On the 21st, the focus shifts back to your health and routines when the Sun moves into Sagittarius. Over the next few weeks, expect to work on improving your health, balancing your work-life schedule, and breaking unhealthy habits. For some of you, this might be a good time to clean out those closets and donate what you’re no longer using to charity. On the 22nd, Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces; your zone of travel, education, and opportunity which may be helpful for restoring your faith in what’s possible. Believe in you.

Leo: Fulfillment is the theme for you this month, as the stars align to help you make sure you’re getting the most bang for your proverbial buck. It all begins with the Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th, which lands in your zone of career and achievement. 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. While a title and status looks good to others and on a resume, it doesn’t mean much if you don’t enjoy what you do or the position you’re in. Your career should be challenging yes, but not at the expense of your well-being, remember that. 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. Don’t be surprised if suddenly everyone wants to work with you or know more about what you do. Overall, when it comes to your career, it’s time to stop dialing it in. Think about things that make you want to get out of bed in the morning and strategize ways you can capitalize on them. Thankfully, Mercury enters Sagittarius (your zone of creativity and passion) on November 5th which will help you to get your juices flowing again. With the planet of thought and communication in this zone, your brain should be moving a mile a minute with inspiration and ideas.

Though this month won’t solely be about your professional life. Your home and family life will also call for your attention, but in a good way. That’s because pleasure-loving Venus will be moving into Scorpio, your zone of home and family, on November 7th.  As such, you may decide to redecorate or rearrange your living space, which could do wonders in improving the energy in your home as well as your mood. Entertaining guests at your home and spending time with close family and friends will also be a source of delight. If you’ve been hunting for a new place to live, Venus in Scorpio, coupled with the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th, could help you to magnetize your dream home. Speaking of the new moon, if you’ve been holding on to any hurt or resentment around a strained relationship with a family member (most likely a parent), this moon may also help you with mending the rift between you or finding the healing you need to move forward. On the 21st, the Sun enters Sagittarius. With the Sun shining it’s light here, your own radiance will be hard to ignore. As such, you could find yourself with more than your fair share of adoring fans and admirers, some of which will catch your eye too. If you’re already in a relationship, you and your bae will be in the mood to rekindle the romance. On November 22nd, Neptune goes forward again in Pisces, your zone of intimacy and finances, which could help to clear up a pending or confusing financial matter.

Virgo: This month, your lesson is to figure out ways you can better put your words and ideas to work for you. Your mission begins on November 4th, with the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of travel, education, and opportunity. With the help of this full moon, you could be offered the chance to teach or study abroad, or land an opportunity to get published. Think of this as your chance to bring your voice to a larger audience, allowing you to positively impact the world with what you have to say. You just have to be willing to speak up and be heard. Meanwhile, this moon is calling you to break free of self-defeating attitudes and thinking, all the while pushing you to reach for some of your biggest dreams. On the 5th, Mercury (your patron saint) leaves your zone of communication and steps into Sagittarius, your zone of home and family. This means that over the next few weeks, you may find that much of your attention is focused on something related to your home life or past. This could involve buying or selling a home, moving or relocating, or taking a trip down memory lane with family. If you need to open up to someone at this time about something you’ve been feeling or that’s been weighing on you, Mercury could also help you to get the closure or resolution that you need.      

When charming Venus moves into Scorpio on November 7th and into your zone of communication, expect your powers of charm and flirtation to go up several notches. Put this power to good use by striking up conversations and setting up meetings with people you want to get close to, as these will be the folks that will help you spread the word when it comes to something you may want to market or release to the public. At the same time, the creative inspiration you receive now will be hard to ignore, which means the ideas you generate could help you to bring in some extra money. As such, humility will only get you so far. Don’t undersell or underestimate your talent. You’ve got something worth sharing and as it turns out, it’s pretty valuable too.

Either way, your financial security takes precedence this month, which means you could get the opportunity to build yourself a more solid foundation. For those of you recovering from heartbreak, this moon could also provide you with the push to move on and heal. With Taurus being a sign that’s associated with self-worth, the full moon can help you to see where you may need to take back your power and let go of those that don’t honor or respect you. You deserve the world, Libra. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel any different. By the 5th, communicative Mercury moves into Sagittarius, your zone of communication. With Mercury at home in this zone, use the next couple of weeks to get your hands on as many new books, articles, podcasts, films, etc. that you can handle as your mind will be hungry for new info and points of view. If you have your own media project that you’d like to share, Mercury can help you to generate listeners and buzz.

On the 7th, when Venus (your patron saint) moves into Scorpio, your zone of income and possessions, get ready to make it rain. Tap into Venus’ power of attraction to draw the right job opportunity, client, or cash cow. Hint: it should be something that lights you up at the mere thought of it. Oh, and keep thinking about it to draw it to you faster. While there should be an abundance of opportunities to increase your cash flow, things may not really pop off financially until November 18th. That’s when the New Moon in Scorpio lands to help you reset your money making mojo. Meanwhile, this new moon will also be pushing you to get better with how you manage your money as well.

Scorpio: You’re the darling of the moment, Scorpio, and this month shows no signs of that ending anytime soon. Part of this is because of the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of partnership on November 4th. With the help of this full moon, you could find yourself saying goodbye to a dead-end relationship, which could be romantic or professional. With things glowing up for you, the last thing you need is to be carrying around dead weight or dealing with unnecessary distractions. Though if things are running smoothly between you and your bae, you could decide to take things to the next level with each other; further deepening your bond.

This full moon will motivate you to get your health under control. Just remember to implement your changes bit by bit and take things one day at a time. No use in biting off more than you can handle right now anyway. At the same time, you could decide to quit a job around this time, especially if it’s been causing you more stress and aggravation than it’s worth. If you do decide to leave, don’t worry too much about whether or not you’ll be able to find something else. The universe has got your back. On November 5th, communicative Mercury is the first to arrive to your birthday party; stepping into Sagittarius and into your zone of confidence and self-image. As such, your focus turns to meeting and greeting all sorts of new people while creating new experiences and opportunities with each conversation and connection you make.

On the 7th, pleasure-seeking Venus moves into Scorpio; your zone of rest, healing, and retreat. With the help of Venus, your job will be to ramp up your self-care regimen which may include yoga classes, swimming sessions, bodywork like Reiki or massage, or a meditation retreat. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to spend more time alone. You need the time away to rest and replenish your well. A note: since hosting Venus in this zone also means the chance of developing a behind the scenes love affair, just make sure that the person you set your sights on is really who they say they are, as it might not be so apparent at the start. If they seem too good to be true, they probably are. On the 18th, the New Moon in Scorpio helps you to turn over a new leaf when it comes to a spiritual practice or establishing a healthier work-life balance. Overall, your soul is looking for some nourishment. Feed it. This will help you with clearing out any emotional gunk or residue from the past, so you can make way for a brighter future.

On the 22nd, Neptune begins moving forward again in Pisces, your zone of home and family. It’s time to put an unhealthy family legacy to rest.

Capricorn: There’s a saying that goes “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” When it comes to November, this may be something that you’ll want to keep in mind, as this month is about letting go of what no longer works and taking a fresh approach. Your quest begins on November 4th, when the Full Moon in Taurus lands in your zone of romance and creativity. Under the influence of this moon, you could decide to bring an end to an unsatisfying love affair or have a realization of sorts on the ways in which you hold yourself back from greatness. Hint: stop dimming your light. If you’ve been plugging away at something creative, this moon could also land you in the spotlight, so don’t be shy about soaking up the attention that you deserve. On the 5th, Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into Sagittarius; your zone of rest and healing. With Mercury working behind the scenes, your focus turns inward. Though this is not about occupying your mind with worrisome thoughts and self-doubt. In fact, it will be quite the opposite. Use Mercury to help you practice mindfulness (the power of being present to the moment) and engage the power of meditation. The goal here is to give your mind a rest and to develop your intuition. Journal writing, dream interpretation, and therapy could be beneficial too.

On November 7th, charming Venus leaves your career zone and moves into Scorpio; your zone of friendship and future plans. With Venus bringing the social butterfly out of you and putting you in everyone’s good graces, you should be able to network your way into an impressive opportunity in no time.

Meanwhile, spending time in the company of good friends will do wonders to uplift your spirits.

While the Sun is in this low-powered zone of your chart, your goal will be to catch up on your rest and to spend time in comfortable solitude; doing a bit of spiritual housekeeping. Allow Sagittarius season to help you restore your faith in yourself as well as a faith that the universe has your back. On the 22nd, when Neptune goes direct in Pisces, your zone of communication, you should feel inspired again.

Aquarius: With your star on the rise, you’re being called to level up across the board when it comes to your life. As such, you should expect some significant developments this month when it comes to where you are personally and professionally. It all begins on November 4th, with the Full Moon in Taurus landing in your zone of home and family. With the help of this moon, you could finalize a deal when it comes to owning your own home or getting the apartment you’ve been wanting.

On the 29th, Mercury moves into Libra, motivating you to pursue a big idea. Don’t lose sight.

The action begins on September 5th, when go-getter Mars moves into Virgo, pushing you to connect and join forces with others that motivate you to succeed. At the same time, if someone has been pressing their luck with you, Mars will also give you the courage to speak up for yourself and maintain your boundaries. Though be warned, Mars will also have you in the mood to stir up some trouble too, so make sure you’re not picking any unnecessary fights with the ones you love or work closely with. Also on September 5th, Mercury begins moving forward again in Leo; your zone of health, work, and routine. The frustrations, glitches, and delays that you may have had to deal with in and out of the office begin to clear up.

If you’re a writer or an artist, you may begin working with an agent to help grow and expand your audience. In matters of the heart, Venus could also help you along. Look to the New Moon in Virgo on September 20th to assist you with meeting someone new. If you’re already attached, you and your love could decide to tie the knot or take your relationship to the next level. When the Sun moves into Libra on the 22nd, it’s all about you and your partner’s resources. As such, September could have you teaming up to tackle debt or make a major joint purchase. If single, Libra season will be teaching you the importance of striking a balance between how much you give and take. While you don’t want to be afraid of vulnerability, you don’t want to be anyone’s doormat either. That’s why Pluto moving direct in Capricorn (your zone of friends and future plans) on September 28th, will be helping you to figure out where you may need to take back your power when it comes to the people in your life. Perhaps it may be time to cut certain people off. Meanwhile, all-or-nothing Pluto will also be helping you to get serious about pursuing your dreams, while pushing you to stay clear of anything where you’re just going through the motions. On the 29th, Mercury enters Libra and it’s time to take a long, hard look at your finances. However, money won’t be the only focus. Your feelings and your ability to voice them will be important too.

On the 6th, expansive Jupiter begins its four-month retrograde in Libra, your zone of travel, education, and opportunity. With Jupiter retrograde here you may need to rethink or review a big picture plan that you have in the works or put a trip or school on hold. While this may seem troubling at first, the goal here is to make sure you know what you want and it’s something that you can commit to. Incidentally, since this area of your chart is also connected to religious and moral beliefs, you may be asked to review or reaffirm yours to make sure that what you believe is legit. On February 7th, Mercury moves into Aquarius, your zone of self-confidence and self-image. With Mercury’s help, you should find yourself meeting and greeting tons of new and exciting people which can connect you to new and exciting offers. Similar to Venus in Aries working in your communication zone, Mercury in Aquarius ensure that your words are golden. You could find yourself being extra social and witty which could bring you love or a sweet business deal. If there’s a presentation or a pitch you want to make Mercury will back you up.

Things get really interesting on the 10th, when a Lunar Eclipse in Leo sweeps through your zone of partnership and marriage. Over the six months that follow this eclipse, some Aquarians may end a relationship in lieu of something better, while other Aquarians could kiss the single life goodbye, or get engaged/married. (P.s. if you do get married, try to hold off until the summer as Venus will be in a better place.) Since the area this eclipse is landing in also covers business relationships and clientele, a joint venture could bear fruit, which could lead to more money and a wider customer base. On the 18th, the Sun moves to Pisces, your zone of income, self-worth and possessions. At this time, the spotlight is on your money, honey and doing what you can to ensure your hard work is properly valued. When Mercury moves into Pisces on the 25th, followed by a powerful Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the 26th, you could get the job of your dreams or at the very least make it your mission to release anything that detracts from your self-esteem. Use Mercury to come up with a solution to better save and budget your money.

Pisces: Money and how you make it, spend it, and keep it will be a major focus for you for most of this month.  Though with Venus moving into go-getter Aries (your zone of income and possessions) on the 3rd, coupled with confidence boosting Mars in Aries, you’ll find that attracting the kind of cash you need won’t be as tough as you think. As such, the Universe will pave the way for you to boost or pad your income this month, which could come by way of a new gig (or a second gig) or new income for launching a new product or a service. Since this area of your chart also covers values and self-worth, hosting Venus and Mars here can show you the importance of believing in yourself and being upfront and unapologetic about what you want. For example, if you decide to stay at your current job, asking for a raise won’t seem so daunting. One thing to note however, is that Mars can cause your expenses to rise suddenly or have you spending more money than you’re making. Try to keep an eye on your budget as best as you can and avoid impulse buys if possible.

On the subject of money, Jupiter the planet of luck and abundance begins its four-month retrograde in Libra (February 6th), in your zone of intimacy, finances, and rebirth. With Jupiter going into a bit of a hibernation mode, your job is to review and reassess your debt and financial obligations as well as the power dynamics in your closest relationships. For example, if you share a living space or financial obligations with someone, yet you’re the one paying the bulk of the balance (especially if it’s putting a strain on you), Jupiter retrograde will make sure that you have no choice but to renegotiate the agreement between you and your share of the weight. This goes for any situation in your relationships where you may be giving more than you’re receiving. Libra is all about balance and you’ll have to make sure that you have enough for yourself too. On the 7th, Mercury moves into Aquarius, your zone of rest, retreat, and release. With your birthday coming up, you’ll need the rest and solitude that Mercury in Aquarius will bring in order to clear your psychic cache and prepare for the new chapter you’re embarking on. If your mind gets too busy or anxious, Mercury can help you to find a meditative or journaling practice that can help ease your mind.

On the 10th, an influential Lunar Eclipse in Leo illuminates your zone of health, work, and routine. With an eclipse here you may decide to leave an unproductive or overly demanding job, put an end to a bad habit or addiction, or make the move to take better care of your health. Since Leo is associated with the heart, at this time you may want to visit your doctor and make sure that everything is ok with your cardiovascular system. Overall, you’re being asked to take charge over your life and take better care of what matters to you – yourself included. On the 18th, happy days are here again because it’s the start of your birthday season! The Sun enters Pisces and lights up your zone of confidence and self-image. Having the Sun back home in your sign is like having the Sun shine directly on you and you alone. Your energy, strength, charm, and mojo increase by the thousands. However, because the Universe loves you so, Mercury will also be entering Pisces (February 25th), followed by a magical Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the 26th. Under the influence of this combination, get ready for your moment in the limelight as just about anything you can conjure up can happen. This kind of mojo doesn’t come around often so make sure to use it wisely. Love, money, and happiness are yours for the taking. Happy Birthday!

On the 21st, the Sun enters Capricorn, your zone of retreat, bringing the Winter Solstice along with it. At this time your source of warmth and vitality will come by therapeutic practices, like counseling, physical therapy, bodywork, or some much needed time away. Since Capricorn is a sign that favors working through a challenge, you could also begin working through some of your more deep-seated fears or self-limiting beliefs. A New Moon in Capricorn on December 29th could help point the way forward, while Uranus (breakthrough) going direct in Aries, your zone of communication, could help you push past a self-limiting belief. No looking back now.

Pisces: You’re at a key time in your professional life where you’re on course to build an impressive reputation or brand for yourself. Yet it seems that there are still people out there who have yet to become familiar with you and your work. That’s why Mercury in Capricorn (beginning December 2nd) will be in your zone of friendship, allies, and future goals helping you to meet and greet with all the right people. Since this zone of your chart is also considered a money zone of sorts, you should reach out to people now that may have job leads in the field of your choice or that can speak highly enough of you to open some doors to new opportunities. On the 7th, Venus enters Aquarius, your zone of healing, endings, and retreat which should put you in the mood for some much-needed downtime. Instead of trying to fight the current, go with the flow and see where it takes you, especially when it comes to giving your body and soul what they need (like ample sleep). A note: Venus here could ramp up the romance and the fantasy when it comes to your love life, though be wary of secret affairs and lovers that aren’t what they seem.

On the 13th, the Full Moon in Gemini lands in your zone of home and family. Under the influence of this moon, you could have a heartfelt talk with a family member that may resolve an ongoing issue, or you could finalize plans on moving, selling, or upgrading your house. Another way that this moon could assist you is by helping you to find new ways to emotionally respond to a challenge. You don’t have to let someone or an experience from your past dictate your present or your future. On December 19th, go-getter Mars enters Pisces, your zone of confidence and self-image, making you a force to be reckoned with. With Mars here, you should find that you’ll have just the right combo of courage and charisma to help you overcome any roadblocks and move things in the direction that you want them to go. Since Mars is known for its fighting style, hosting Mars in your sign could make you more testy than usual. Though this energy could be helpful in keeping unwanted people, situations, and energy out of your sphere. When Mercury goes retrograde in Capricorn (also on the 19th) this theme of keeping unwanted folks out of your life may repeat itself as you’re called to review your friend’s list. Reconnect with those who have been good to you.

On December 21st, Capricorn season begins along with the Winter Solstice. With the Sun joining powerful Pluto and Mercury retrograde in this zone, your focus will be on reviewing and refining your plans for the long-term. What do you want to see accomplished in the next year? The next month? The next week? Let Mercury retro help you to slow down and break down your bigger goals into smaller chunks to avoid getting overwhelmed. On the 29th a New Moon in Capricorn could help you with your future planning efforts. When Uranus (freedom) goes direct in Aries, your zone of income and possessions, you should be able to get a grip on any out of control spending or expenses. Work on building your emergency fund.
