Scorpio OCT 24- NOV 22

The sun and new moon in your deep-water sign on Novem­ber 8 cel­e­brate Scorpio’s per­sonal astro-birth­day, which comes with the ce­les­tial present of ex­pan­sive Jupiter en­hanc­ing your money zone, fi­nan­cial pic­ture and ca­reer prospects for the com­ing year. As a re­sult, goals and pro­jects that make a so­cial con­tri­bu­tion will get an ex­tra boost. Vixen Venus, feisty Mars, mis­chievous Mer­cury and provo­ca­teur Uranus, all ret­ro­grade this month, brew up a com­pli­cated com­bi­na­tion of erotic pos­si­bil­i­ties, skewed com­mu­ni­ca­tions and sparky ar­gu­ments, with the full moon on the 23rd in your pri­vate sec­tor com­plet­ing sev­eral life cy­cles by deep­en­ing, chang­ing or rad­i­cally re­ar­rang­ing.


While Uranus per­co­lat­ing in a fel­low re sign prom­ises plenty of en­ergy for the fes­tive sea­son, this month’s huge news is Jupiter start­ing its year-long stay-over in Sagittarius, gal­vanis­ing your luck­i­est year in more than a decade. Be­fore you hy­per­ven­ti­late and stretch those thor­ough­bred legs, Mer­cury presses a mid-month pause but­ton to ease you into this aus­pi­cious tran­sit via an in­tro­spec­tive three weeks for you to con­sider which mis­takes you’re not go­ing to re­peat. And since Mer­cury ret­ro­grade in your sign is when you’re most likely to mis­judge or make er­rors from rushing and hur­ry­ing, best ad­just your set­tings to smooth, cruisy and easy does it.


Jupiter book­ing in for a 12-month stay in Capricorn’s house of com­ple­tion kicks off a tran­si­tional year of let­ting go what you’ve out­grown in readi­ness for the for­tu­nate planet’s ar­rival in your sign in De­cem­ber 2019. Mean­while, this month’s steamy Mars ac­ti­vates Capricorn mo­jos, but don’t let your need to call the shots make the love path harder than it need be: just re­lax and re­ceive. While Venus is at her classi­est and most el­e­gant, get out and about mix­ing busi­ness and plea­sure as you do so well. Don’t for­get self-care or ne­glect pam­per­ing ei­ther, be­cause next month you’ll be way too busy.


Novem­ber’s af­fec­tion­ate Venus is send­ing in­spi­ra­tional play­ers your way, so why hes­i­tate when you can col­lab­o­rate? When ret­ro­grade Mer­cury (never a good time for truth bombs, be­cause even the sim­plest things can be mis­con­strued) lit­ters the last half of the month with tem­po­rary set­backs, it’s ad­vis­able to recheck emails and me­dia posts be­fore press­ing send. Big­gest news? Your main planet Uranus head­ing into the tech­nol­ogy and team­work sec­tor of your chart for an up­grade, while charge-ahead Mars in the Aquar­ian work and money sec­tor for the rest of the year is ex­cit­ing and suc­cess­ful. Just don’t add stress­ful.


With Venus in her ir­ti­est mood, Novem­ber’s mid-month hotspot sees mag­netic Mars kick in to warm your love hor­mones for the rest of the year – hello, happy hol­i­days. And that big break you’ve been wait­ing for? Jupiter, planet of mag­i­cal ex­pan­sion, shift­ing into your pro­fes­sional sec­tor could make this the year. Sure, there are Mer­cury ret­ro­grade hitches and glitches, but they’re only tem­po­rary tests. If you’ve been feel­ing the love but ques­tion­ing the fu­ture in a cer­tain con­nec­tion, Nep­tune ow­ing for­ward in your sign ap­plies high-speed wind­screen wipers for clar­i­fy­ing crys­tal vi­sion: cue Jimmy Cliff singing

I Can See Clearly Now…


You might won­der who hit re­play when game-changer Uranus backs into Aries again for a four-month nale of at­tend­ing to life’s loose threads: un­knot­ting some, ty­ing oth­ers se­curely, trim­ming and snip­ping. All so you can take full ad­van­tage of Jupiter jet­ting into the sign of ad­ven­ture and your house of travel with a po­tent 12-month dose of good for­tune, joie de vivre and cross-cul­tural con­nec­tions which could see you teach­ing, study­ing or in­volved

in in­ter­na­tional busi­ness. And Mars mov­ing from the realm of ideas to feel­ings warms Novem­ber with many mem­o­rably melt­ing per­sonal mo­ments.


Gen­er­ous Jupiter mov­ing into the col­lab­o­ra­tion corner of your as­tromap sug­gests part­ner­ing up could be one of your best suc­cess recipes in the year ahead. From mid-Novem­ber on­wards look for merg­ers which could make your nances work faster and smarter. This month’s ret­ro­grade tran­sits do come with tests and hur­dles, so if at rst team ven­tures don’t suc­ceed, then ride the learn­ing curve and try again. With vi­va­cious Venus net­work­ing the cur­rent buzz for pro t and plea­sure, by the time full moon shines its light into your money zone on the 23rd you’ll have it sorted.


Gem­ini’s as­tral sec­tor of part­ner­ships host­ing ge­nial Jupiter for the next 12 months makes this your lucky love year for all kinds of al­liances: pri­vate, so­cial, pro­fes­sional, spir­i­tual, ro­man­tic and nan­cial – al­ways re­mem­ber­ing that the pri­mary re­la­tion­ship is with your­self. Mer­cury in chatty Sagittarius en­sures you could talk any­one into any­thing this Novem­ber, in­clud­ing your­self; just be aware the mer­cu­rial com­mu­ni­ca­tor ret­ro­grades mid-month with its usual mixed mes­sages, mis­un­der­stand­ings and warn­ings for cau­tion on so­cial me­dia. But Venus at her most sooth­ing and en­gag­ing smooths ruf­fled feath­ers, and in the bril­liant light of Gem­ini full moon on the 23rd, you shine.


The I-dare-you new moon on Novem­ber 8 de­liv­ers a lu­nar lift to the love lives of Cance­ri­ans cou­pled and solo, hotly fol­lowed by a mid-month ro­man­tic re­boot from ad­ven­tur­ous Mars blast­ing you off the com­fort couch. If ret­ro­grade Uranus brings a pro­fes­sional set­back or per­sonal dis­ap­point­ment, use it as an op­por­tu­nity to re­fine and re­vamp your pri­or­i­ties. As big-pic­ture Jupiter in your zone of or­gan­i­sa­tion for the next 12 months ush­ers in a pow­er­fully pro­duc­tive pe­riod, mid-month Mer­cury is­sues a call to get sen­si­ble stress- man­age­ment strate­gies in place be­fore the sea­sonal on­slaught of hol­i­day shop­ping and Christ­mas crazi­ness.

LEO • JUL 24-AUG 23

Mer­cury adding its weight to this month’s plan­e­tary ret­ro­grades strongly rec­om­mends up­grad­ing ver­bal se­cu­rity set­tings: mean­ing the less said, the bet­ter – par­tic­u­larly when mid-month Mars is on the warpath and Leo tem­pers are. With the red planet un­sta­bly placed for the rest of this year, con­sider get­ting pro­fes­sional nan­cial ad­vice, es­pe­cially around the Gem­ini full moon on the 23rd, when two heads are de nitely bet­ter than one. Though you’ll prob­a­bly barely no­tice these blips in the ex­cite­ment of Jupiter’s once-in-12-years ar­rival in your house of ro­mance and per­for­mance for a whole mag­i­cal year of ex­u­ber­ant ex­pan­sion – how ut­terly ab­fab is that?


Shake-it-up Uranus in your zone of emo­tional bond­ing is de­liv­er­ing a wakeup call that some­thing isn’t sus­tain­able, and this may prompt you to think about rene­go­ti­at­ing cer­tain per­sonal obli­ga­tions. But with Mer­cury ret­ro­grade in your sec­tor of sen­si­tiv­ity, it might be wiser to post­pone dis­cussing touchy sub­jects like hol­i­day ar­range­ments and bud­gets till next month. Red-hot Mars in your pas­sion­ate part­ner­ship depart­ment stirs up sparks (along with the drama that can ac­com­pany them), while Venus is at her sweet­est and most se­duc­tive. If the full moon on the 23rd spot­lights some­thing lovely with your name on, don’t hes­i­tate to claim it.


With a charm­ing Mars/Venus con­nec­tion on the 9th and Venus, your plan­e­tary queen, in her favourite playsta­tion Libra all month, love is in Novem­ber’s air. And it’s aus­pi­ciously bal­anced by Mars in your house of or­der and or­gan­i­sa­tion till the end of De­cem­ber – an ab­so­lute boon for the sea­son of un­rea­son, though un­less you’re keen to im­per­son­ate those many-armed multi-task­ing ori­en­tal god­desses, best start del­e­gat­ing and down­siz­ing now. With Jupiter in your house of speak­ing out for the next 12 months, start think­ing about the things you re­ally want to say.
