Welcome to November
We enter the month of November amidst one of the most “explosive” eclipse seasons in years. As far back as the ancients, Eclipse seasons have signified change, unexpected events and course re-directions. Whether the change is desired or not, astrologers recognise that eclipses bring shifts in our lives to better align with our purpose – individually and collectively – whether it’s welcome or not. As always, the intensity of the impact of the eclipse will be greater it triggers planets or angles in your Birth Chart which a professional astrology reading can explain in more detail.
The end of October brought us the new moon in Scorpio partial solar eclipse and on November 8, 2022 the total lunar eclipse will take place under the full moon in Taurus. The signs of Taurus and Scorpio are associated with our values, resources (food and shelter), money, shared assets, investments, mortgages, loans, taxes and business partnerships. Expect these topics to be significantly highlighted over the coming 6 months after the eclipses have occurred.
Uranus, the planet associated with breakdown to breakthrough, destabilisation, innovation, intuition and revolution is also a key player in the total lunar eclipse. You can actively work with this energy in your life by spending time focussing on what you want to create. Make time at the start of each day to raise your body’s energetic frequency through meditation, visualisation, imagining the emotional energy you want to experience in your life and journaling. More than ever, where you place your mind’s attention you will experience that in your external world at work and at home. So, choose uplifting content, music, friends, colleagues, mentors and coaches to ensure you stay focussed on what you want to build versus going into fear about what is changing. THIS IS CRITICAL!!!
We also enter November at a slowed pace with Mars having commenced his 2 ½ months retrograde journey. Given Mars symbolises our drive, energy and competitive spirit, you may well be starting the month with lower energy levels and motivation than you normally have. Plus, for much of November, Mars connects with Neptune which adds a layer of confusion, foggy thinking and veiled information which can leave your decisive powers lacking.
At the end of the month, Jupiter ends his long retrograde journey supporting us to tune into new dreams and expand beyond what’s possible now.
So yes, it’s a very intense and somewhat confusing month ahead. HOWEVER, it’s a time for reviewing where and what you want to put your energy into. It’s a time to deeply lean into what is purposeful for you and how you’d most like to positively impact the world. And, boy, the world has never needed you more than now to do so!!

Oh how you fiery Aries professionals love to have plenty of projects on the go and be first to get them done!! But right now, you’re being invited to S L O W down. It takes a lot for you to take the foot of the gas, but now is the time to do so. It’s been a big year for you with plenty of Aha’s landing on what you want to do moving into 2023. But, your tank is close to empty right now so use wisely your energetic reserves in the run down to the end of the year.
November starts with your ruling planet Mars in retrograde. This happens once every 2 years. The last time it occurred was from September to November 2020 so cast your mind back to coping strategies you engaged then to sustain yourself. Mid-month you may struggle to see things clearly or understand what direction to go in. Try to be ok with this and take things one day at a time.
With Jupiter now returned to the part of your chart associated with retreating from the world, you are invited to deepen your soulful practices using mindfulness, breathwork, journaling and healing modalities to tune into your wise self. You will be rewarded with fresh insights and ideas that you can action next year.
The total lunar eclipse on 8 November is taking place in the area of your values, personal resources, possessions and self-worth as well as your shared assets, investments, mortgages and taxes.

Change and restructure in your life continue to be big themes for you in November. As a fixed earth sign, change is most challenging for you determined Taureans. If you haven’t yet embraced change, this month is likely to throw up some more unexpected directions for you to contemplate.
With your ruling planet Venus travelling through Scorpio in your relationship sector, it’s a powerful time for establishing new partnerships and deepening existing ones – both professionally and personally. But you won’t suffer fools or emotionally stagnant individuals. You are looking to connect with others in a deep way. So you’ll be drawn to those who are in touch with their emotions who can speak with ease about intense matters in an honest and vulnerable way. Only then can the truth be discovered for both of you.
With Jupiter once again transiting through your organisation sector this month, your professional community and associations are an area of focus for you. On the one hand you are enjoying expanding your professional circle of influence. Just be aware that sometimes things are not exactly what they seem. So if things seem too good to be true, they most likely are.
The total lunar eclipse on 8 November highlights you finding the right balance between your needs and the needs of your primary partnerships. Given eclipses can reveal truths or help you see things in a new way, you may discover aspects of relationships that have you question if they are the right partner for you for the long-term. Or, it’s possible an opportunity arises for you that comes completely out of the blue such that you need to focus more so on yourself than the relationship for a while.

With the Sun and your ruling planet Mercury transiting through your health and wellbeing sector, it’s a good time for that health check and to set up some strong boundaries for your work life.

Especially limiting subconscious patterns that started in child-hood which have shaped you into the person you are today. It’s time to bring them to the surface and release them so you can live with a greater sense of freedom and connection to your very bright spirit!!
For sure, your emotions will go up and down all month as the Moon, your ruling luminary, makes her way through the tumultuous skies. There is a lot going on in the world right now associated with the breakdown of patriarchal structures and a renewal of human’s connection with the earth to bring about her healing and mankind’s. But I know you are up for it. You’re ready to more deeply tune into the energies at play so you can do what you do best which is to nurture and nourish others and make them feel safe in your unique way.

Welcome to November Librans!! This month your ruling planet Venus is making her way through intense, truth-seeking and transformational Scorpio in your money and personal values sector. You have the opportunity to reflect on your values and what matters most to you. Take time to explore what you value most above and beyond the materials. It will serve you well as you move into the end of the year. Venus in this sector is also very supportive in helping you bring in the money, just be mindful of not spending it as soon as you earn it. The potential to do so is high at the start of the month.
For the last 8 weeks you’ve had Mars activating your desire to expand your knowledge base through international travel and professional development. He is now backtracking through this part of your chart giving you the opportunity to review what you’ve learned, how you want to use it and contemplating what more you want to discover. You are equally curious right now to understand the meaning of life and are possibly exploring spiritual modalities to support you making sense of your emotions and why you are here. It’s a very potent time to do so. Just be aware your usual pace of learning is likely slowed down as Mars travels backwards through the skies until mid-December.
Jupiter returned to your health and wellbeing sector at the end of October where he will be for another month so you can use this to tend to your health and find solutions.

Happy Birthday Scorpions and belated celebrations to those of you born late October. This is going to be one of those BIG months of the year with the eclipses bringing about change inviting you to set (or continue with) a new life direction. I know that you prefer stability, security and being able to see things through to completion. I also get that you have had to navigate a lot of change over the last 2 years (due to the Saturn-Uranus square) and that it hasn’t been easy. But, let’s face it, you prefer to be in control and to do things your way. That’s why in November the universe is serving up more change to help you release what you no longer need, transform and align with your purpose!
With your traditional ruling planet, Mars, now retrograde in your shared resources and psychological development sector, you are being invited to review your investments, taxes and mortgages and seek counsel from psychologists, healers or coaches to help you chart a new course.

Relationships that are not authentic will break-down. And equally, new exciting opportunities to collaborate with others will emerge. Just note this can take up to 6 months to reveal.

Welcome to November!! This first half of this month the Sun is inviting you to give yourself time to retreat from the fast pace of the world. To escape behind the veil of yourself. To tune into your spiritual essence and soul’s longing. Granted, that’s not easy as the weather is warming up here in the Southern hemisphere and pre-Christmas deadlines loom. So, at the very least, aim to take a few minutes at the start of the day when you first open your eyes to focus on how you want to feel for the day and consider what you want to create. If you can, also mediate and journal ideas that come up to go to the next level. Far from regretting it, you’ll revel in the shift it creates.
