SCORPIO 23rd October - 21st November
Go Scorpio, it’s your birthday! We're gonna party like it’s your birthday! The month begins with the Sun in your sign, which is always epic, closely followed by communicator Mercury. As a result you’ll feel much more on the ball... YOU'VE TOTALLY GOT THIS.
The new moon on the 11th is pretty mega as it’s in your sign *party popper emoji*, forming a sweet angle to lucky Jupiter, giving you extra oomph in getting any grand schemes you have off the ground. It’s like your own personal new year, so yay to that.
Venus shimmies into Libra mid-month and you could start thinking about someone from your past over the next month - an old flame perhaps? Try and get closure on any unresolved issues. For the last part of the month, a pesky square between Saturn in your financial sector and fuzzy Neptune should see you being extra careful with how you invest your resources, as there could be a sting in the tail and your energy might dip as a result. However as long as you keep your wits about you on the financial front, this month could be the start of something special that comes into fruition in 2016.
SAGITTARIUS 22nd November - 21st December
Saturn returns to your sign for the next few years (wooooo), asking you to strip back your existence (oooh, deep) to prioritise what’s truly important within your heart. Structured Saturn squares with dreamy Neptune in your emotional sector and some kind of evolution of you as a person seems inevitable.
On the 2nd, Mercury moves into Scorpio, syncing up with the Sun, creating a more chilled, meditative mood, although you’re working hard. However on the 9th, Venus moves into Libra and reminds you to get out and see your favourite faces and let your hair down. The new moon in Scorpio on the 11th shows you that quiet, behind-the-scenes work is often as beneficial as showy, front-of-house stuff, especially in the long-term. Mercury and the Sun move into YOUR sign at the end of the month, and a chilled weekend follows. However, practical Saturn will severely test any new ideas you have, if you haven’t ironed out all the finer details. Don’t get too down ‘bout it though, just start to simplify your life and surround yourself with those who can help you build solid foundations for the future.
CAPRICORN 22nd December - 19th January
Hey Cap! November is set to be a very sociable month for you, especially at the start. There’s a big ball of energy in Virgo, giving you a taste for variety and adventure, plus Mercury joins up with the Sun in the most sociable part of your scope. Ding-dong!
The new moon on the 13th sees expansive Jupiter forging a nifty link with the Sun and moon in the most vibrant part of your starmap, lasting for well over a month. You’ll be networking like a badass - you absolute queen, you. Mid month, planet of love Venus moves into your organisational zone; if you’re serious about someone, things may get much more solid ‘tween the two of you.
However, come the end of the month, you’ll want to chill as you’ll be feeling more sensitive than usual as your emotional robustness gets tested. You’re a pretty matter-of-fact person, but your ruling planet, Saturn, squared up to dreamy Neptune, is asking you to view things from a more abstract point of view. Despite all your bright energy, you have a tendency to see things in black or white - but what about the grey areas?
AQUARIUS 20th January - 18th February
The theme of this month? Believe in your dreams! The challenge? Being your most true, authentic self, Aquarius. Mercury and the Sun give you the perfect platform to radiate your talent and step into the spotlight at the start of the month.
From the 13th, Mars sweeps into Libra and your more rebellious streak will come to the fore. If you’re clear about your future goals, you’ll be able to talk most people around. Watch out for fuzzy Neptune wreaking havoc on your everyday expenditure, especially during the last third of the month. Mercury and the Sun relocate on the 21st and 22nd into the friendliest part of your chart which could make for a fun weekend. However, both planets are then gripped by Saturn, PLUS the full moon gets in on the act and you’ll feel a bit overwhelmed. You might find someone disappoints you, especially concerning money - so don’t mix business with pleasure. Make sure you’re surrounded by the right people who truly let you show-off your personality.
PISCES 19th February - 20th March
The focus for you in November is pushing through your career fears, Pisces. The month begins with a big fat ball of energy in your opposite sign of Virgo, and Venus will be sparking some sweet moments with you and someone special.
When communicator Mercury moves into your sister water sign Scorpio, alongside the Sun, you’ll have the urge to expand your horizons - maybe around travel or higher education - and everyday life. On the 11th the new moon syncs up with lucky Jupiter, encouraging you to be brave and you might meet someone special - a kindred spirit - who can transform your situation. Your co-ruler, dreamy Neptune, is going to be mega influential all month, angling up to structured Saturn in the sign of Sagittarius and world responsibilities. Not necessarily a match made in celestial heaven. Think and rethink any big plans you have for expansion. They could overwhelm you.
ARIES 21st March - 20th April
You’ve got an intense month ahead ram, with a real focus on relationships. Messenger Mercury syncs up with Scorpio as Venus cosies up with Mars in Virgo, giving you one helluva passionate and playful start to the month. You’ll be feeling the urge to merge, which is only intensified as Venus moves out of Virgo and into your harmonious relationships sector.
There’s awesome planetary energy around the new moon in Scorpio on the 11th, making for some sweet vibes and the start of a really lucky period for you. Be mindful of your ruler Mars going into opposition on the 12th when you may suffer the effects of planetary PMS #sorryboutit.
The last third of the month sees a tricksy angle between strict Saturn and fuzzy Neptune, and you could be feeling a little anxious about life in general. Saturn’s influence on Mercury and the Sun will heighten your need for knowledge, particularly around the full moon in Gemini on the 25th. But stay true to your beliefs, be brave and go conquer the world!
TAURUS 21st April - 20th May
Money is on your mind this month, bull! It starts with the Sun moving opposite your sign meaning you could be lacking in energy, but with communicator Mercury making a similar move, you’ll crave conversations with deep-thinkers, as well as mapping out your life a little more. An intense new moon in Scorpio on the 11th forges a sweet link with expansive Jupiter and encourages you to make changes, follow your passions and express yourself; stop being your own worst enemy!
Dreamy Neptune goes direct on the 18th in an idealistic part of your starmap, but squares up to practical Saturn in your long term resources sector - one income stream might start to dry up (ugh) so it’s important you’re realistic about your budget, especially with Christmas coming up. The full moon in Gemini on the 25th will illuminate what deep inside you already know to be true and encourages you to be brave in achieving your dreams. You’ll have a lightbulb moment on the 29th.
GEMINI 21st May - 20th June
You might feel that life is ch-ch-changing this month, Gemini, as you decide whether you should stay or go. Your ruler Mercury moves from Libra into Scorpio on the 2nd which encourages deep thinking and creative vibes; maybe pimping up your pad is part of the plan because, Pinterest goals.
The planet of love, Venus, moves into the romantic part of your chart, linking up with first Saturn and then Mars, meaning you’re more choosy about who you spend your time with. You’re more aware of how people perceive you, from a romantic or professional POV - watch out on the work front especially.
A lovely new moon on 11th syncs up with fortunate Jupiter and things could crop up unexpectedly, taking you in a completely different and unique direction. Motivator Mars moves into Libra mid month, encouraging you to focus your energies and restore a bit of balance to your life, particularly with your closest relationships. There’s a tricky full moon in Gemini on the 25th, connected to the Saturn-Neptune square, encouraging you to create a better work-life balance. Surround yourself with your best gal pals to get a renewed motivation for life.
CANCER 21st June - 22nd July
The month begins with the moon in your sign, Crab. With messenger Mercury moving into a shiny part of your starmap, you could be mega busy or get important news in the first few days of November.
As Venus shimmies out of Virgo on the 9th, you’ll be feeling super creative and wanting to express yourself, whether that’s through cooking up a storm in the kitchen or getting your craft on, there’ll be a major nesting vibe throughout. The powerful new moon on the 11th links up with lucky Jupiter - use your powers of persuasion carefully and you could get your way in a sticky sitch where a partner or work colleague is concerned.
Come mid-month there’s a cosmic shift as Mercury and the Sun move into your practical sixth house, joining up with structured Saturn, squared with Neptune. Don’t overburden yourself with too many obligations - give yourself a little bit of wiggle room to avoid burnout. Create some ‘you’ time to recharge those batteries.
LEO 23rd July - 22nd August
At the start of the month, Mercury moves from Libra into Scorpio, encouraging deeper thinking and working out what’s most important to YOU, dear Lioness. Mid month, Venus and Mars move into your communication sector and you’ll be able to successfully handle tricky conversations with those closest to you.
A powerful new moon on the 11th might make you sentimental for a traditional Christmas or giving something back to the community - maybe volunteering at a homeless shelter? You’ll feel all the feels. If you’ve started up a side-hustle or creative project from the comfort of your home, it seems you’ll get lucky in this area in the coming months. A testing full moon on the 25th encourages you to focus on quality over quantity when it comes to your friendship groups - stop spreading yourself so thinly. Maybe a cull on Facey-B is due? You can’t please everybody all the time.
VIRGO 23rd August - 22nd September
At the start of the month, Mercury, your ruler, moves into Scorpio and you’re able to communicate your BIG ideas much more clearly. Mid-month, Venus moves into Libra and your financial situation looks set to improve, especially once Mars catches up come the 13th.
With the sparkling new moon on the 11th, and Jupiter in your sign (wooo!), you’re going to be feeling on top of your game and ready for what life throws at you. This planetary opportunity to transform your life by embracing what makes you feel more unique only happens once every twelve years. You’re going to be persuasive and mega compelling.
The contrasting energy this month comes from fuzzy ol’ Neptune in your relationships house, squaring up to practical Saturn in your emotions sector. Try not to get FOMO and avoid letting other people impact your feelings so much. By the end of month you’ll start to feel more secure.
LIBRA 23rd September - 22nd October
You’ve been reflecting on life a LOT lately, Libra, but now the Sun has moved on to Scorpio, it’s about empowerment and standing out from the crowd now. When Venus your ruling planet moves back into your sign and your first house of self on the 9th, you’ll be looking and feeling FIIIINE, especially when motivator Mars gets in on the action too, on the 12th. You’ll be a little more sassy and ambitious when it comes to getting new projects off the ground.
The powerful new moon in Scorpio on the 11th, combined with the Sun and Mercury will see new beginnings on the horizon IF you use your creative talents and get out of your comfort zone, that is. Towards the end of the month, there’s an influential square with Saturn in your third house of learning with Neptune in your sixth house of work so you might be feeling unfulfilled in your current role. The crunch point comes in the middle of month and you’ll need to invest your energy wisely. Face your fears and show off your personality in order to progress.
