Key themes: your calling, nurture, care, family, community, causes that move you, your worth, health
Are you taking enough time to rest, Aquarius? With November beginning right in the middle of eclipse season, check in on what has stirred up within your career and your calling since the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 25th? If you feel like your profession or your goals are limiting your fullest potential, this is the perfect time to think about how to liberate your path. Reflect on this and set your intentions for the next 6 months.
The Full Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus happens on the 8th at 6:02 am EST, and it will join forces with Uranus in your area of home, family and ancestry. Explore nurturing ways of taking care of yourself. Cultivate settings where your body and your nervous system can just relax. Take your needs more seriously, but also be playful about it, try things out and if they don’t work try something else. Tend to mothering yourself in ways your parents couldn’t. Pay attention to the unexpected, it brings magic with it.
On the 16th, Venus leaves the deep and intuitive waters of Scorpio to enter the expansive, wisdom seeking Sag until December 9th. Mercury then joins Venus on the 17th, and will also be transiting Sag until December 6th. This happens within your friendships, communities and causes. This is a time to reach out. Connect with the ones that can uplift your work, your ideas, your spirits, your understanding of what you have to give to the world, and the impact you’re already making. Put your visions into words. Work on being more interdependently supportive and supported. Don’t wait for the invitation. Make yourself available.
Sag Season begins on the 22nd, and the Sun will highlight the themes that Venus and Mercury have already been bringing to your attention. This season is about connecting with the communities where you feel like you belong. Are you surrounded by people that are willing to question and tear down harmful and outdated structures in order to rebuild more inclusive ways of being? This is a time to question yourself about the seeds you wish to plant with others.
The next day, the Moon and the Sun will meet, bringing the Sag New Moon at 5:57 pm EST, highlighting the importance of collectivity in your life. How do you show up for your people? How do you actively strengthen your bonds? How do you honor the connections that keep you afloat? Take a moment to tap into the wisdom that you’ve gathered from your networks. Honor how far this wisdom has gotten you by thinking up ways to pay it forward.
On the same day of the New Moon, Jupiter will station to go direct in Pisces, where it will be until December 20th for the last time in twelve years. Reminding you to center your growth and your worth. Ask for what you know is the true value of your craft and nothing less. Acknowledge and celebrate your natural resources, those that go beyond material possessions.
November ends with Pallas going retrograde in Cancer on the 30th, helping you to observe the patterns that don’t work within your routines. When it comes to your health and wellness habits, you’ll be able to make decisions from a place of wisdom and knowledge, rather than emotion.
Ruling Planets: Saturn, the Planet of Challenge & Uranus, the Planet of Surprise
Where You’ll Find Them: Hacking a website, filming a documentary, planning a revolution
What They Avoid: Following the rules, mushy-gushy relationships, petty drama
Aquarius, the 11th sign of the zodiac, is known as the Water Bearer because it’s all about the transmission of elements and information. Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac. Ruled by Saturn and Uranus, Aquarius knows how to remain focused on a project that will benefit something larger than their own self. Aquarius is the innovator of the zodiac, always ahead of the game, which is why they may feel like a misunderstood loner at times. At other times though, Aquarius knows how to put on their social hat and live it up — it all depends on their mood.
Aquarius has a knack for technology that makes them a natural entrepreneur and creator. They would thrive as a techie, marketer, journalist, business person, activist, grassroots organizer and politician. Aquarius is known for having progressive and unconventional thoughts and ideas, so not everyone will necessarily be on the same page as them, and they really don’t mind. Aquarius often paves their own professional trajectory. They don’t necessarily view formal education as the main means to an end. They’ll create their own legacy based on their true interests, which are varied and changing. Aquarius does excellent work on their own, but they are also incredible leaders and collaborators.
Friendship is Aquarius’ forte, because they are quite observant creatures and they love to figure out what makes people happy and what makes them tick. So while Aquarius can sometimes purposefully get on your nerves just for fun, they also know exactly what to do or say to make you explode in laughter or to dry your tears. Aquarius is the kind of friend who will actively come up with solutions to your problems, as long as your problems aren’t super emotional or dramatic. Being an Air sign, Aquarius feels most comfortable in the intellectual world, and they’d benefit from befriending more sensitive types who can help them tune into their intuitive world. When Aquarius combines the intellectual with the emotional, they become unstoppable.
One thing Aquarius must learn to do in order to boost their love life is not fear their emotions. Aquarius tends to intellectualize their sensitivities and even hide them behind a mask of indifference. This is due to the fact that falling in love or even the concept of intimacy can make Aquarius a bit too uncomfortable — they feel more at ease with friendship than love. Nevertheless, Aquarius is a sapiosexual, meaning they’ll fall in love with your mind first. The key to an Aquarius’ heart is to be knowledgable, intriguing and curious. Aquarius will want to dive into your being if you can keep them interested and thirsty for knowledge. And while Aquarius will always seek freedom and independence in their relationship, they still make their lover their priority, in their own way. Everything about Aquarius is done in their own way, and that simply can’t be changed.
