The long cooler days and nights are here making us want to keep warm. Some will venture to warmer destinations in order to escape the cooler weather. Others, will remain indoors allowing the darkness to consume them. Many will be wallowing in self pity while others will be enjoying the slowing down of things. The quiet brings much needed rest and peace. We all need this resting phase in order to continue to set ourselves free of whatever things are still clingy on. Do yourself a favor and don’t drive yourself mad instead find solace in the quiet retreat.
November 1st Venus shifts into Sagittarius bringing truth, optimism, foresight, and a deeper understanding of those closest to you. This energy feels a lot lighter and playful and as such many will be in this engaging energy. Others, will not like the heat being presented to them because it means they have to face their truths, their negativity, and their actions will be questioned. When any planetary action is in Sagittarius it means the truth is up and center. Yes, things were revealed while Venus was in Scorpio but the truth was not a factor however now it is. Partnerships and relationships of all kinds will be scrutinized. Flying off the handle will happen from time to time and explosive anger will occur. Now, remember if you work with truth and integrity than you really have nothing to worry about. Just remember if you want the truth than be truth and you always receive it. Just keep in mind the truth hurts however it also sets you free.
The full moon in Taurus is on the 12th shedding light in areas most won’t like the light being illuminated. Others, will thrive during this moon. Again, it all depends on where you are on your personal development and growth. This moon we can see people being selfish, playing martyr, being control freaks, and being overindulgent in every area in their life. On the upside there’s the energy to increase money, to be more disciplined in our lives, to be more grounded, more determined to get things done, and to have more control of ourselves. Depending where you are I would recommend being outside and enjoying the beauty of the moon. If you want to work with candles light green, pink, or white. Make yourself a good meal and go under your blankets and just relax. Life isn’t so bad and that is what this moon is showing us all.
On the 19th Mars enters Scorpio lighting that fire once again. This energy is helping us to take action with all the things that were revealed last month. Now is the time to move forward leaving behind all the indecisive energy of last month. The Libra energy of last month was teaching us balance and it bought us options we needed to consider. What occurred was a restragerizing of plans. Realizing our chess pieces were not in the correct position. Now, with Mars in Scorpio we gotta be careful not to act on erratic emotions instead we should use our emotions to make intelligent moves for the long term. Emotions are a blessing and a curse at times however the more aware we are of them the better judgement we will have. Don’t let jealousy and ambition be your drive instead consider how everyone involved will be affected. Remember, you aren’t the only one dreaming; we are all in it together. A lot of deep breaths and understanding in order to see everyone is doing their best to conquer their shadow.
Mercury stations direct the very next day and by this time people will be running to the light. Everyone will have noticed that misery does indeed like company but it’s an unnecessary energy to be in. All the shedding that was done during this retrograde was necessary though. It gave much needed light in those dark hidden areas that were hidden for far too long. Thank the heavens it is over but most importantly thank God for those karmic lessons that are now healed. The world is now a much lighter place in the grand scheme of things.
Venus shifts into Capricorn on the 25th bringing awareness to those who are of value to us. Partnerships and relationships take a much deeper and serious tone during this time. Only because everyone is assessing the value of everyone in their lives. Capricorn’s motto is, “I Use” keep this in mind as everyone is going to realize how they are being used and how they are using others. This transit can get dark very quickly but it will be a great healing time for those karmic lessons we perhaps are refusing to acknowledge. So, again breath deeply and proceed with caution, remember you are ascending not descending. However, if you find yourself lowering yourself for the benefit of others break free and leave it all behind.
New moon in Sagittarius is the next day and you definitely want to work with this energy. The moon brings opportunities for travel, fortune, learning, and expansion of all kinds. Deep spiritual understanding is in the cauldron as well; so, take a sip of that yummy juice. Purple and blue candles will be great for this moon. Being around animals and children will bring that playfulness which many are in desperate need of. The truth will set you free with this moon. Put those running shoes on and set off to your new found freedom!
The next day Neptune stations direct after being retrograde since April. Back when this shift happen everything got turned upside down and now everything will be right side up once again. So, get your scuba gear on because this tidal wave is enormous. Many will drown, while others will surf, and yet others will still be caught off guard by it. Nothing is an illusion anymore everything is in reality as it should be. The only delusions would be of those who don’t want to face reality. So, protect yourself and keep in mind crazy attracts crazy. More deep breaths and longer exhales will serve you well around this time because remember the holidays are here. Stress levels are higher around this time than any other time of the year. Do your best to enjoy your family and not be driven crazy by them.
As the month ends you will be wondering what the hell happened but just know there is still more to come next month!
