Dear Aquarius, we may all still be feeling a bit jet lagged from the eclipse season. What hunger have you been left with when it comes to your need for safety and emotional security? It’s time that you begin to communicate these needs, to be more honest about how you want to be taken into consideration, and even how you want to be taken care of. This doesn’t make you weak. It takes so much strength and self confidence to be this vulnerable.
November arrives with Saturn shifting to go direct on the 4th in the ethereal sign of Pisces. This is happening in your area of resources and values, where for the past months you’ve been reviewing what you want to invest in, and how you can avoid monetary leaks. These next two years are a time to let go of the outdated ways of making a living, the ones that leave you dry and with very little reward, and to step into new, more abundant and fertile ways of sustaining your life. Listen to your intuition, and trust your creativity.
On the 8th, Venus, the Planet of Love and Beauty, will leave Virgo to enter its home sign of Libra, where it will be until December 4th. In your area of adventure and expansion, you’re being invited to come out of your comfort zone in order to connect to the kind of pleasure that you’ve yet to experience. Stretch your view of the world in order to include beliefs that are different from yours. There’s a beautiful balancing act that happens when you’re open to meet another where they are at without leaving yourself behind. Your one-on-one relations have so much wisdom to share with you. Allow them to be a mirror.
On the 10th, Mercury, the Planet of Communication and Exchange, will enter the wisdom-seeking sign of Sag, where it will be until December 1st. This happens within your friendships, communities and the causes that stir you, making it a great time to reach out and connect with the ones who you can co create with, support, or be supported by. Put your visions and ideas out into the world. This is not a time to go at it alone. Don’t wait to be invited, make yourself available, let them know you wish to collaborate.
The New Moon in Scorpio is happening on the 13th, exact at 4:27 am EST, in your area of career and long-term goals, emphasizing the energy you’ve been swimming in since Scorpio Season began on October 23rd. What does the professional freedom you desire look like? Write about it in excruciating detail. Meditate and envision it. Ask to be liberated from what has your energy under arrest. How do you wish to grow through the work that you do in the world? What does this even mean for you? Connect with these questions, allow yourself to experience how they feel on the inside. There’s a power and a magic to this practice.
On the 22nd, we move into Sag Season, as the Sun shifts into the sign of the Centaur, and Mars follows its lead on the 24th, remaining in Sag until January 4th. This happens in the area of your life that rules the people and spaces that offer you a sense of belonging. If you’ve been feeling out of place lately, this will slowly begin to shift. Remember that showing up for others doesn’t just feed them and yourself, this has a way to expand out into the collective. Remember that every act of kindness has the ability to soften a heart and to get paid forward. Honor the ones that have shown up and continue to show up for you.
The Full Moon in Gemini is happening on the 27th, exact at 4:16 am EST, in your area of creative self-expression, reminding you how potent your intentions can be. Your talents are ready to support you, your dreams want to come into being, your community is ready to offer a helping hand. Remember that success isn’t about getting there first or being lonely at the top. Your friends help you rise, and you help your friends rise.
I’ll leave you with a poem from Nayyirah Waheed that says: “you will find your way. it is in the same place as your love.”
