Your ruling planet is Mercury, linked to communication and the mind. Virgo rules the nervous system and you can be hyper-active, curious & critical. It’s important that you channel your discerning mind into worthwhile tasks and outlets rather than be overly critical of yourself or others.
If you’re typical of your star sign, you may enjoy research and any area of life where you can create order. When you follow where Mercury leads, you can make the most of the planet linked to trade, the spoken word, versatility & quick-thinking.
As November begins, Mercury is in Scorpio alongside the planet of relating Venus and the Sun. Scorpio season encourages you to dive deep as there are hidden riches to be found when you delve beneath the surface.
Admittedly, this could be a time when secrets emerge or you find out things that you don’t like. Yet, on the whole, it’s worth putting on your detective hat and engaging fully with fact-finding and solving mysteries.
Scorpio lights up your communication sector. Therefore, it’s a good time to throw yourself into life close to home, to reach out and connect with old and new friends alike. Scorpio is a star sign that likes to go in deep and this is ideal for self-analysis and working hard to gain insight and understanding into yourself and the ones you love.
You could choose to go back to school and educate yourself or gain new qualifications. Or, perhaps you prefer to start a blog or podcast or write for your local paper. You could leap into a community matter or take action in your local neighbourhood. It’s about finding your voice and speaking your truth.
It’s important to note that action planet Mars is now retrograde in Gemini and your career and vocation sector. This is great for retraining, revision and reworking your projects. You might enjoy learning a language or playing chess or poker. It may be that you need a diversion from everyday life, one that becomes a healthy obsession.
It’s not the time to go full throttle in your career. Instead, rework your strategy, rethink your ideas and get ready to take aim once again mid-January 2023.
Travel and study may be important to you now. These areas could be ripe for change as the Lunar Eclipse on the 8th highlights the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac and these sectors of your horoscope. You may be examining your beliefs or be engaged in a dramatic clash or conflict. This eclipse cycle will complete in October 2023.
You could receive important news about a course or trip. Be aware, however, that eclipse symbolism often hints that something has to end or be given up before you can embrace anything new.
Uranus sits next to the Moon in Taurus during the eclipse, the rebel, independent and unpredictable. You could run into people or organisations that are anti what you believe in. Try not to take undue risks and be aware that tempers could flare if you feel incensed. The 9th & 10th are when things could happen fast.
You might experience opposition to community plans or division within your neighbourhood. It depends what side of the fence you’re on whether you’re prepared to hold firm or jump ship.
As Uranus is involved, be careful with technology as it’s here where things could go wrong or one comment could go viral and not in a good way. Transport could be unpredictable too. Aim to be flexible and adaptable rather than foolhardy.
The Sun & Moon are squared by Saturn in Aquarius and your work and health sector during the eclipse. You may not be happy if you’re feeling held back, you’re facing your limits or you allow fear to kick in. The period from the 5th to the 11th is topsy turvy astrology. Think carefully before you leap in.
This eclipse is triggered by the Saturn-Uranus square, the major planetary aspect of 2021. Saturn represents the authorities, rules & regulations, whereas Uranus is the rebel, favouring freedom & liberation.
These two planets have been in square aspect once again since mid-2022 but during this eclipse they begin to part ways. The symbolism seems to suggest that something has to break down before you can break through. The trickiest dates for you are potentially the 9th & 10th.
Big planet Jupiter is now back in Pisces representing your relationships, both personal and professional. Jupiter’s completing its journey through this sector of your horoscope. This might be a wonderful period to get love right and do whatever it takes to find happiness within your one-to-one relationships.
It could spell good news for a business partnership or a joint collaboration. It’s love, however, that often benefits when Jupiter’s in your opposite star sign. There could be wedding bells or talk of a second honeymoon.
The luckiest dates are the 15th, 16th & 21st when the inner planets in Scorpio align with Jupiter in Pisces in positive planetary aspects. Jupiter’s influence sometimes coincides with a lucky opportunity or a blessing that comes your way.
Know that Jupiter’s about giving as well as receiving. Therefore, reach out to other people and do your bit to help. Encourage the flow of love and kindness.
On the 16th, your ruling planet Mercury enters Sagittarius followed a day later by Venus and the Sun on the 22nd. Sagittarius is one of the fire signs and this can be easier planetary energy to deal with than when the planets dive deep into Scorpio. It’s less hidden and more out in the open.
Sagittarius rules your home and family, your past and where you come from. This would be a good time to organise a family get-together or travel to see someone you haven’t seen for some time. Ensure that your surroundings and your family situation make you as happy as possible.
The 23rd is a stand-out date when there’s not only a New Moon in Sagittarius, a symbol of new beginnings, but big planet Jupiter turns direct in Pisces. This could spell good news for your close relationships and would be an ideal date for a celebration.
