What’s in the fashion cosmos for you this month
23 OCT – 21 NOV
On 7 November, you’ll feel a surge of determination as the new moon rises – your desires will feel particularly potent. A new moon in Scorpio has a certain reputation for mystery and sorcery, and an excuse to channel your inner sorceress is always fun. Take note of Bottega Veneta’s floor-sweeping dresses.
22 NOV – 21 DEC
After almost 13 months in Scorpio, Jupiter returns to Sagittarius, the planet it rules, on 8 November – this feels especially comforting. You may feel as if you’ve slipped into your element, though nothing has changed. The time is right for self-improvement, so keep it sharp and smart in Joseph suiting.
22 DEC – 19 JAN
Mars in Pisces will influence decision-making on 27 November, encouraging a more whimsical, perhaps even nostalgic approach to your routine (looking at Miu Miu’s throwback styles, you’d think Mrs Prada were a Capricorn…). Lean into it — whether that concerns important decisions at work or your everyday wardrobe.
2O JAN – 18 FEB
Mars in Aquarius during the first half of November will have you feeling bold, ready to take control of your many whims. On 9 November, your big ideas will seem attractive to outside eyes when diplomatic Venus in Libra gives you a boost. Time to indulge in excess, and we mean yards of neon tulle à la Molly Goddard.
19 FEB – 2O MARCH
On 15 November, the planet of action will enter your midst. But thanks to Pisces’ mellow energy, this is Mars’ most chilled-out position and will inspire you to relax. When paired with the impending cold weather, this seems a perfect opportunity to wrap up. Those swaddling styles at Jil Sander seem very inviting.
21 MARCH – 19 APRIL
Uranus retrograde will enter Aries on 6 November and its energy will invite you to break old habits. You might feel the urge to reach out to an ex, for example, but November will be your time to look forwards, not backwards. Look to the blinding metallics by Balmain (not directly, mind), and shine forth, friend.
2O APRIL – 2O MAY
You can rejoice when your ruling planet Venus finishes its retrograde on 16 November and brings a surge of calm. This is a peaceful placement, and will likely provoke your appreciation of art and colour. The ornamentation of Dries Van Noten is made for this mood (and its bed jackets are just right for this weather).
21 MAY – 2O JUNE
Mercury enters retrograde on 16 November and its placement in Sagittarius can indicate danger. This is an ill-advised time to travel, ask risky questions or undertake life-altering challenges. An armour of sorts will ease you through this time — swap the classic sort for Paco Rabanne’s silver paillettes.
21 JUNE – 22 JULY
Hold your head high on 7 November, when the new moon in Scorpio plays on your sensitivities. Stepping outside your usual routine of self-care could mean you risk feeling hurt and misunderstanding. Stay grounded with the comforting hirsute slippers by everyone from Celine to Birkenstock.
23 JULY – 22 AUG
With two retrogrades in Aries and Sagittarius, your fellow fire signs are spelling trouble this month. You are sensitive to the energies of others and may feel an extra layer of tension, but you are adept at navigating this with lightness and humour. Laugh in the face of anxiety with shouty ‘YES’ hair slides by Ashley Williams.
23 AUG – 22 SEPT
Mercury retrograde, which kicks off on 16 November, will make this period seem chaotic. Your ruling planet moving backwards in Sagittarius will leave you feeling unmoored. Counter that chaos by clashing prints with block-coloured separates like those by Marni.
22 SEPT – 22 OCT
With Venus leaving retrograde on 16 November, this month will feel as if it’s split in two. Its backwards motion in the first two weeks may drain you of inspiration. When the planet turns direct, you will feel stronger than ever (perfect time to play with your wardrobe). How about some Sin City styling inspired by Marc Jacobs?
