November 2018 Horoscope

We begin the month of November with the energies of the planet Venus still in retrograde, highlighting our relationships, our money and the things we value in general. Many of us have been feeling the extra tension from this. Hopefully we are using this time wisely to re-evaluate things and to restore balance in our lives. Venus will turn direct once more on November 16th, the same day that Mercury goes retrograde and it feels a bit like the planets are playing around with us!

Mercury will be in retrograde from November 16th until December 6th but do keep in mind there is approximately ten days of the shadow period before and after the dates. We can sometimes see the effects of the retrograde during the shadow, especially those of us who have a strong Mercury influence in our personal charts.

While this is happening, it is important to keep in mind that this energy often brings with it extra frustration as communication is often strained in some form or another. It is wise to make backup plans and to make backup copies of important documents and files. If you plan on traveling during this time, it is wise to be prepared for possible delays, lost luggage, missing passports, etc.  

This is a good time for preventive maintenance so getting your car serviced, getting a physical, getting insurance, etc are all favored during this time.

A Mercury Retrograde period is the best time for doing any sort of review work. Think of the prefix “re” and apply it to just about anything and you get the idea: review, redo, revise, renew, remodeling, redecorating, etc. Practice patience and be prepared for plans to change or to fall through and you will handle this retrograde just fine!

Here's a quick guide on what to do and what not to do during a Mercury Retrograde for best results!

On November 7th, we have a New Moon in Scorpio at 15 degrees. Scorpio is one of the strongest signs in the zodiac. It often deals with the harsh lessons of losing something or letting go of something that is difficult to release, but there is always growth in this if we can choose to see it and surrender to the transformative power of Scorpio.

During this New Moon, the Sun and Moon will be making a trine aspect with the planet Neptune. This is wonderful energy for any sort of dealings with the arts; music, poetry, writing, art, etc. This is also compassionate energy, reminding you to show compassion not only for others but also with yourself. Spirituality is also highlighted with this energy and it is a good time for setting intentions having to do with your spiritual life.

Also, Venus will be square to Pluto, ruler of Scorpio and this energy can bring out obsessions, compulsions or you may be involved with someone you know is not good for you. It could bring back an old lover who wants to reconnect with you and if this is wanted, this may need some emotional healing before you can fully reconnect. It is also good energy for taking something up that you used to love but haven’t made time for, such as a hobby or sport that you enjoy. Because Venus is still retrograde during this time, it is important to remember to love yourself and give yourself the extra attention that you need. Venus also rules money so it might be a good time to revisit your relationship to money as well.

Jupiter is at the last degree of Scorpio during this phase and so it is time to let go of the old things, to release any pain you might be holding on to unnecessarily and get ready to move on. 

Now let’s not forget that Uranus, the planet of change is also in retrograde now until March.  On November 6th, just prior to this New Moon, Uranus will enter into the sign of Aries once again. This is a time to look back over the past 7 years when Uranus first entered the sign of Aries and see how far you have come since then. During the New Moon phase, this is a wakeup call to look at your past actions, review them and make new decisions to move forward again in a new way.

On November 8th, Jupiter will enter its own sign of Sagittarius and the energies shift once more. In Sagittarius, Jupiter is at home and many of us will feel an uplifting energy from this! This is a time for expanding the mind, expanding your experiences and venturing into new territory. Optimistic expansion is the energy behind this so look to see where Sagittarius is in your chart to see which areas will be highlighted for you. If you would like help in reading your chart, feel free to contact me.
On November 15th, Mars the planet of energy and direct action will enter into the dreamy and mystical sign of Pisces. While Mars is here, the energies are more subtle and we are more guided by our intuition than our intellect. For water signs (Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio) the energy will be assisting in your personal energy levels so take advantage!

On the night of the 22nd or 23rd depending on your time zone, we have the Full Moon in Gemini. This energy is social energy. It highlights our intellect, our ideas and our conversations. This is a good time to evaluate how you have been processing things mentally, are you glossing over details, getting too involved in gossip, being too restless and flighty in your thoughts? Remember, Full Moons are a great time for releasing so take a look at what things you are juggling in your life and determine what needs to be released or delegated to help you restore balance in your life.

On November 24th the planet Neptune goes direct once more. It has been retrograde since June in its own sign of Pisces. During this time, we often learn about some ugly truths either about our relationships with others, about ourselves or about our world. This is also a time when our spirituality is brought into focus and we are called to examine our more spiritual needs and see what needs to be done to reconnect with that part of ourselves. As Neptune turns direct once more, we hopefully have restored that connection, handled the truth we have learned with maturity and wisdom and found our faith renewed as we venture forward toward making our dreams a reality.

In Numerology, November is a number 4 universal month. This is a time for making plans, putting down roots, settling in and building foundations. Keep in mind with the Mercury retrograde, there may be some delays or some bumps in the actualization of this energy but with a little patience and understanding of divine timing, this shouldn’t be a problem!

Have a wonderful month!

October 2018 Horoscope

We start the month of October off with Venus, the planet of love, desire and all that we value going retrograde through the sign of Scorpio on October 5th. This is happening at 10 degrees Scorpio. Venus will go direct once more on November 15 at 25 degrees Libra. This retrograde will last for 40 days and in some schools of numerology, this is a significant number as it denotes strength gained through trials.  This can be a rather intense retrograde for some people and can sometimes lead to remarkable life changes. As this is ending in Libra, it is likely to also lead to changes in relationships and how you value them. Whether this will be a positive or negative result for you personally depends greatly on your ability to learn from and to trust the process of life.

Venus shows us what we value and what we desire. In Scorpio, this can sometimes be an all-consuming love, obsession or attraction but it can also mean a deep, emotional connection with another and learning how to merge your energies with another in order to create something more. It is reminding us of our deepest desires and inspiring us to take action to go and get it. And we need to remember that Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of transformation so this energy can be very revolutionary on an individual basis as well as on a global scale.

On October 31, Venus will retrograde through Libra. In Libra, Venus is about finding reason in your passion and how to find objectivity in your perspective when it comes to those things you value the most. Libra is ruled by Venus and in this sign the relationships in our lives are highlighted. Libra energy is about harmony, balance and fairness. It’s about give and take and equal sharing of time and affection. This energy is asking you to don a new perspective about your relationships and see what areas in your life need balancing.

For more information on this Venus retrograde, check out this interesting article by AstroButterfly, where she even describes the Venus retrograde effect on the transpersonal planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) which can have a significant impact on someone’s chart.

October 8 sees the New Moon energies happening in Libra, the sign of “the other”. This is a time for relating and the Venus retrograde energy is definitely going to play a part in this. Partnerships are highlighted now and if your marriage or business partnerships need work, now is the time to focus on them. This is excellent energy for negotiating with another especially when it comes to sensitive issues. Do your best to remain objective and set the intention to create more harmony in your relationships during this New Moon phase.

October 9 Mercury enters Scorpio. This energy shifts our focus onto more deeper and meaningful subjects as Scorpio is all about digging deep and discovering the truth beneath the superficial surface. This is a time for talking about the difficult issues too as these things tend to rise to the surface during this influence. Also, if you have anything that requires investigation or research, this energy will greatly assist you in your endeavors.

The Sun enters Scorpio next on October 23, followed by the Full Moon in Taurus on October 24. While the Sun is here, our focus is on our shared resources with others, how we can tear down and transform areas of our lives. It’s also about looking beneath the surface and digging deeper to find the truth. This is intense Scorpio energy going on right now with Venus, Mercury, Jupiter (it’s been in Scorpio for about a year now) and the Sun all illuminating the issues which we normally don’t want to see or talk about. And with the Full Moon energy, the emotional energies are super charged! Scorpio energy reminds us that it might be unpleasant, but it still needs to be addressed.

On a global scale, we may see some major disclosure happening in our governments, healthcare and/or financial institutions and several of us may be left feeling rather raw and open afterwards as ugly truths are exposed. But we must remember that it is only through this process of uncovering and exposure that we can learn how to release that which is no longer working and make way for something bigger and better to come along. Although the changes may seem painful, we can always choose to find the growth rather than stay in the pain. Remember, change is inevitable but suffering is optional.

The Full Moon in Taurus on October 24 reminds us to take a look at our lifestyle and evaluate where we need to adjust our routine. This energy is very earthy and steady and it seeks comfort in all forms. This is a time for seeking a balance between all of your feelings and what you can do on a practical level in your life. Full Moons are always more intense on an emotional level but the energy of Taurus tends to slow it down a bit thankfully. This is a good time for releasing unhealthy habits on a practical level such as laziness, self-indulgence and emotional eating.

Mercury enters the sign of Sagittarius on October 30 and the energies once again shift. Mercury in Sagittarius energy is somewhat mixed. While Mercury likes details, Sagittarius does not and this mixing of energies can sometimes create mountains out of molehills and can often stretch the truth. On the other hand, Sagittarius is expansive and likes to open our minds when Mercury is involved. There is often a problem with speaking without thinking first while Mercury is here and we can sometimes forget to deploy tact in sensitive situations. It is a good reminder for us to take on different views and allow for different approaches to subjects, as well as to think before we speak so that we do not let our tongues run carelessly into conversation and we find ourselves regretting our words.

In Numerology, October 2018 is a number 3 Universal month. This is a time for expression, communication, creativity and increased social activity. October looks to be a rather active month mentally and more than likely we will see some people talking about the tougher issues (such as the disclosure happening worldwide). Many more of us will also want to talk about the planetary shift that is happening right now and how this is affecting mass consciousness. This isn’t surprising considering the Scorpio energies going on this month too.

To get a more accurate sense on how these planetary energies will be working in your personal life, look to see which house is ruled by Scorpio in your natal and progressed chart. You can get a free chart at or you can book a reading with me and I will be happy to discuss your chart with you over a live video chat. Learn more here.

Overall October looks to have some interesting energy going on! It’s mostly about Scorpio and its intense energies bringing transformation to our personal lives as well as to our planet. I wonder what sorts of new information we will discover. Do you have any ideas? Share them in the comments below. We just may learn some interesting new facts about life this month. We shall see!

Have a good month!
