November 2018- The Return of the King

Friday, November 9th, Jupiter comes home.

The moon will curtsey and go dark at the doorstep of Scorpio so the Lord of Olympus can leave the house of sex and death discreetly.

He’ll be decked out in his finest as he comes home to Sagittarius to take his rightful throne. It’s been ten years since he’s been in his own house, so expect a randy banquet feast to last the weekend long.

With Venus in her Libran sweet spot and Mars feeling all kinky and experimental in Aquarius, expect a sexy weekend of canoodling, new positions, and maybe even toys…

By the following weekend, Jupiter will be ready to get down to the business of ruling, but Mars is still going to be nursing a hangover. Hiding out in Pisces’ spa, Mars just wants to chill and go with the flow, so expect some rumblings when Jupiter summons him from the sauna to the war table.

That same weekend crazy ol’ cousin Mercury is going to start tearing up the house retracing his steps looking for his lost keys. He won’t find them until December, so be warned–it’s going to get a little messy.

The moon is going to find her fullness smack dab in the middle of the Thanksgiving holiday in Mercury’s home turf of Gemini, so expect lots of reminiscing around the dinner table, lots of weepy toasts, and some seriously revised and sanitized versions of family history. The holiday may prove a little rocky for new engagements and sibling reunions.

During the week of the 26th, Mercury will wander into the throne room and swap glory tales with Jupiter and the Sun. They’ll relive memories of past triumphs and make plans to ‘get back out there’ and adventure as they did in the old days.

Along into that week, Mercury will stumble over a lotus-eating Mars and fuss at him for being underfoot. The Sun will also grumble at the god of war for behaving like a wuss. Mars, however, has decided he’s off for the holidays. He’s keeping it mellow til 2019.

So what does all this mean for us mere mortals?

The weekend of the 9th is going to be a swell time to do a little partying and to make a little whoopie.

Prepare for lots of distractions and unexpected hiccups during Thanksgiving prep. Turkey on the floor. Whipped cream curdled. Sold out pumpkin pie spice.

The holiday itself promises to be poignant, emotional, and full of memories, which, depending on who you’re with for the day, can cut both ways.

Finally, during the last week of November prepare to receive the benefic blessings of Jupiter as he is joined in Sagittarius by Mercury and the Sun. Old king Saturn is also on his throne in the kingdom next door. It appears justice, noble ideas and orderly dignity are going to be the tone of the week. An opportunity to begin the holiday season with reflection and intention.

Libra II Forecast 10/3-10/12

If you thought the Kavanaugh hearings were intense, hang on to your hat for the second ten days of Libra. Issues of sexuality, secrets, truth, justice, and bringing buried things to light are going to be the order of business for the next week or so. It will play out in different areas of our lives based on our birth charts, but on the public stage, be prepared for high drama.

ARIES
Toward the end of this week, you’re going feel compelled to unburden yourself of a secret or grudge you’ve been carrying for a while. Be prepared to own your part in the situation, and realize that truth brings consequences for all involved. The more you can be generous and act from a place of principal, the more potential you’ll have for healing. If you charge into the fray as judge, jury, and executioner, you’re going to receive an equal amount of fury thrown right back at you.

TAURUS
Heading into the weekend, you’re going to receive a clear indication you need to stick close to home and work on your personal relationships. Your instinct will be to focus on your work life. You’re going to be deep into a project that’s important to you. Something different from what you’ve done in the past, and something in which you have a lot of time and energy invested. Don’t let your enthusiasm launch you into outer space. Spend time on your personal relationships. Consider things that have been going unsaid. Your effort may just be rewarded with several days of sensual, sexy physical activity.

GEMINI
You may find yourself on a high horse for the next ten days. Your situational awareness and shrewd analysis of power dynamics are going to have you itching for a fight for justice. Your ideals are going to seem particularly high-minded, and you’re going to find yourself dissecting systems and intersectionalities underlying the world you inhabit. Your wit and insight will be double-edged-razor sharp, so you may want to watch your tongue. Then again, you may not! I doubt you’ll lose an argument over the next few days, and you may just reduce your opponents to a blubbering mess.

CANCER
Over the next ten days, you may feel an odd sense to purge. You may suddenly realize you have way too much stuff that doesn’t have nearly the sentimental value you thought it did. You may also find yourself combing through childhood memories and relics. There are secrets you’ve kept since childhood. They may be small or they may be like beasts of the deep. Sorting through your past will be especially healing over the next several days. You will find you are able to let go and move on from things that have burdened you for years.

LEO
Relationships are going to be front and center for you the next few days. You are going to find yourself contemplating and evaluating the people who are closest to you. Sometimes loyalty and habit extend relationships beyond their natural life, and there’s a good chance it’s time to infuse your life with some new faces. And you may find that you see some old friends in a new light.

VIRGO
Your phone tree is going to be blowing up over the next ten days with friends who suddenly feel the need to confess to you their darkest secrets and the darkest secrets of a whole bunch of other people they know too. Be prepared to defend your safe zone. Self-care is going to be essential. No need to be shy about disengaging from others’ drama. In fact, you may decide to go off completely on your own and enjoy a movie, play, concert, or spa day.

LIBRA
Happy Birthday, Libra IIs! It’s time to celebrate, but I have to caution you to take it easy. Over the next ten days, there’s a good chance you’ll overdo it on sensual pleasures and it could come back to bite you in your wallet as well as your body. As you head into the weekend, you’re going to feel the urge to do something new and unexpected. Again, be very aware of any potential weakness or possible backfires in your plans. Also, don’t skimp. If you try to take shortcuts or buy off-brand, it will not work out in your favor.

SCORPIO
If you are partnered prepare for some serious sexual exploration over the next ten days. LIke, lock-yourself-in-the-bedroom-and-don’t-come-out-for-a-week sexual exploration. Spend as much time as you can in or near water. It’s not all fun and friskiness, though, some of this exploration may unearth deeply buried parts of yourself. Best to stay home or at least take refuge in a place you feel protected and safe. If you are single, be careful to keep your personal and work life separate. If there’s someone in the office you’ve been flirting with, back off. Now is not the time.

SAGITTARIUS
The next ten days are going to bring friendships into focus for you. You may find yourself making new friends or meeting new people through your existing networks. You’re going to feel inspired and turned on by these new folks you’re meeting. You’ll be open and excited about trying new things and creating new experiences. The caution for you now is to keep your wits about you. You’re going to be feeling emotionally generous so your native skepticism may be subdued. When running with your new pals, avoid intoxicants that will impair your judgment or alertness. New friends and friendly new people are two very different groups.

CAPRICORN
For the next few days, you’re going to be the proverbial horny ol’ goat. You’re going to be feeling randy and kinky. You’re going to want to dress up and reinvent your look. It’s going to be ten days of new positions, new locations, new props, new partners. You may well end up learning shocking things about yourself you never knew. And strangely enough, you’re going to feel very much at home in your own skin–like you’ve finally found your own rhythm and style. Play safe!

AQUARIUS
If you’ve been silently suffering at work, things may finally come to a head over the next ten days. You’re going to be challenged to take a hard look at how your work life is impacting your closest relationships. If there’s any shady business at work, backroom dealings, or petty politics–all that is going to come to light over the next ten days. You’re going to be ready to take to the barricades and declare revolution. That may be the appropriate choice. But first, take a hard look at yourself. Where have you sold out your own principals? Your own dreams? Your own inner sense of justice? It may be time for a revolution, but that revolution may be much more about you than where you work.

PISCES
Over the next ten days, you’re going to be prone to flights of fancy, vivid daydreams, and superstar fantasies. It’s going to be important for you to stay grounded in your body and to counterbalance your slipstream imagination with good old fashioned logic. You’re going to be dealing with closely held beliefs, possibly conspiracy theories, and almost certainly pet opinions that are not based in any discernible reality. You may find yourself compelled to engage in risky, adrenaline-producing activities. There is a strong chance you will be hurt or injured if you follow through. It’s going to be a wild and intense few days. Pay attention.

Libra I Forecast 9/23-10/2

ARIES
Monday’s full moon puts you in an emotional mood. If you’ve been putting off tough conversations with your honey about your relationship, now could be the time to wade in. In the coming days, your competitive spirit will be more collaborative plus you’ll find yourself less short-tempered than usual. The exception will be Thursday 9/28 when you’ll be feeling stubborn and sulky.

TAURUS
It’s time for a tune-up. If you’ve been putting off having dental work done, avoiding medical tests, or neglecting fitness goals, you can right the course now. There’s a good chance that circumstances have changed, and your old habits aren’t cutting it anymore. Instead of beating yourself up, brainstorm. Innovate! Mix it up. No need to wait for January to make some healthy resolutions. Monday’s full moon will give you some emotional juice to engage in self-care.

GEMINI
Monday’s full moon is going to kickstart your creativity. You’re going to get a big boost in inspiration in the coming days. Projects you’ve been stuck on will click. You’ll hatch new schemes and shenanigans. Your challenge, though, will be distractions. You’ll be even more indecisive than usual, and it won’t take much to chase your imagination down creative rabbit holes and off the task at hand. Take heart, though. Around the 30th, things will shift, and your sense of focus will return and there will be nothing to block your way.

CANCER
It’s a happy time for doing some pre-winter nesting and bringing some beauty into your home. Monday’s full moon is going to put you in worker bee mode. Being in your home taps into your spiritual side as well. Consider what centers you and feeds your soul. Take time to meditate. Set up a sacred space in your home to honor the things that matter most to you. It doesn’t have to be a shrine or altar, just space that’s designated as special to you and the ones you love.

LEO
You’ve been grinding at work pretty hard lately. Now, your social life will move to the fore. The full moon on the 23rd is going to get you out and about. Friends you haven’t seen in a while will surface. You’ll land in fascinating conversations. Just remember, that as much as you’re a straight shooter, there are cards best played close to the vest. Don’t give away the secret plot twist of the novel you haven’t written. Don’t spill gossip just for oohs and ahs from your audience. Remember the golden adage of show biz: “always leave them wanting more…”

VIRGO
Finally, after all your birthday hooplah, you’re going to get some quality time at home again. Spend some energy on re-entry. Balance your bank statement. Spruce up your home base with something beautiful. The full moon has the potential to provoke you into arguments (especially with opinionated young men), so clear your calendar to spend some heart-to-heart bonding time with a bestie or sweetheart. Sunday 30th is a wild card day where you’ll have skills and luck to do anything you want and make it successful. Plan accordingly.

LIBRA
Happy Birthday, early Libras! It’s time for you to celebrate. Given the influence of the full moon, you’ll enjoy yourself most this year around longtime friends (rather than new friends and acquaintances). But despite the celebratory season, you seem to be hung up on your health–maybe even your mortality. Check yourself for hypochondria. If you’re feeling drained and low energy, chances are the reasons are more psychological than physical. Find a no-nonsense nurse friend or the like who will be supportive, make sure nothing is physically wrong, and totally call you out on your BS.

SCORPIO
The recent whirlwind in your social life may have brought you in contact with a sexy stranger who’s got you all hot and bothered. Although a pretty person, you should proceed with extreme caution. Whether a budding romance, a new-found friend, or an unexpected workplace ally, this person is likely to bring out your worst tendencies. There will be lots of creative heat, but just as much potential for getting wrapped up in self-destructive misadventures. Forewarned is forearmed. And speaking of forewarned, take care around Monday’s full moon. You’re going to be a little accident prone.

SAGITTARIUS
Be prepared for changes in a significant relationship close to home. It could be a roommate or a partner, or it could be immediate family–especially your mother or grandmother. Be mindful of your arrow tongue and realize that all relationships change over time. When things get intense, your default response is to get away, take a lap, roam for a bit. The full moon will egg you on, but in this instance, the best thing for the situation is to stay put. The more you resist the changes that are happening, the more your body will suffer for it in stress-related symptoms. Deep down, you have a healer’s heart. It will serve you now.

CAPRICORN
Be on guard with the relationships closest to you. You’re going to be feeling uncharacteristically needy over the next week or so, and at the same time, you’re going to have difficulty putting your feeling into words. You’re going to be a little out of sorts, fuzzy headed, and you might be prone to some serious bouts of self-pity. If that’s the case, don’t respond by numbing out with booze, television, or other distractions. That will only intensify the effect. The full moon may make you prone to pick fights at home. You’d be better off focusing on your health and getting your personal affairs in order. Your funk is a temporary one.

AQUARIUS
You’re going to receive a meteor shower of inspiration in the coming days. Monday’s full moon will kick things off and you’ll be introduced to people and ideas that turn you on and get your brain buzzing. Be warned though, your BS detector may be on the fritz. You may take on some nonsense that would not normally make it through your filters. The key is to take everything with a sense of play, and by the end of the work week, you’ll be firing on all cylinders.

PISCES
Your perpetual sense of romanticism is going to take a back seat for the next few days. You’ll find yourself wanting to spend time alone. In fact, it’s the perfect time to do a Pisces deep dive into the depths of your dreams, visions, secret missions, and favorite fantasies. Follow your instincts as stick close to home. The full moon will encourage you to pamper yourself. Do that. If you must socialize, gravitate to close friends who know your moods and won’t expect you to perform. If you been keeping a list of movies or tv episodes to catch up on, now would be a good time to binge.

Virgo III Forecast 9/12-9/22

Mercury shines strong between 9/12 and 9/22. Look for traces of the messenger, magus, mercantile god’s influence in every aspect of life.

ARIES
It’s going to be a busy ten days for you. You’re going to be on the move, and you’re going to have lots on your mind. It’s important right now to express yourself. You’ll be involved in some serious planning and scheming come the weekend. Watch your infamous temper toward the end of the weekend as conversations will have the tendency to turn unexpectedly to argument. The week of the 17th, you’ll find your focus and start producing like a machine. Your tendency to get irritated with people who can’t see your vision or keep up with your pace is going to be close to the surface. Give the rest of us mere mortals a break.

TAURUS
Your creativity is about to hit high gear. You will have inspiration and energy to transform your ideas into reality. Over the weekend your creativity could take a darker turn. You might find yourself drawn to taboo subjects and art that challenges conventional ideas of beauty. You are not going to be in the mood for work, and you should be conscious of what you’re muttering under your breath–it may be overheard! You are going to tap into your creativity in a deep way as the new week begins. You’ll have fun and feed your soul. Just make sure you get your ideas out of your head and into the world.

GEMINI
While your patron planet is ruling the roost, you will be best served by staying close to home and considering your direction. You may find yourself pondering some big life questions, and thinking about transition. The weekend may bring relationship troubles to the fore. You may feel pressured into making a decision you’re not ready to make. By the start of the new week, a new sense of direction will emerge. Don’t be surprised if it means you’ll be taking a path you hadn’t even considered. A clear vision will materialize, and you’ll be able to chart out a very specific plan to get where you want to go.

CANCER
Communication is going to be your keyword for the next few days. You’re going to be involved in discussions around both big and small ideas, and you may suddenly find yourself scheduled for some short- and long-distance travel. Over the weekend prepare for an onslaught of epic procrastination. You’ll have a slew of little errands and tasks that need your attention, but you will do your best Cancerian crabwalk to avoid them. Toward the middle of the following week, you’ll have an opportunity to spend time with friends and family.

LEO
Work continues to dominate the next few days. Take time to plan and organize to avoid getting overwhelmed by the sheer volume of tasks coming your way. You will have an internal struggle over the weekend. You know you could use the time to good advantage getting caught up on work and ready for the following week. You’re going to be tempted, though, by social gatherings and activities with friends. By the following mid-week, you will have found your groove and be a productive machine. You’ll be organized, efficient, and at the top of your game.

VIRGO
The Virgo birthday celebration continues over the next ten days. You’ll enjoy bursts of creativity, satisfying entertainment, and a hopping social calendar. Take it easy over the weekend. You will be susceptible to overindulging and may end up stuck to your home base. As the new week begins, you’re going to get a boost of creative energy for all your task planning, schedule organizing, and statistical synthesis. By mid-week you’re going to be operating at double-Virgo capacity!

LIBRA
Endings are going to be a theme for the next few days. You may be engaged in walking away from a bad habit or a bad relationship. You may be leaving one home and moving to another. You may realize you no longer have anything to say to friends you were once close to. Over the weekend, you may suddenly find you’re bored with your old haunts and distractions. By the middle of the following week, you’re going to be consciously evaluating every aspect of your life and letting lots of things go.

SCORPIO
Your social life is going to continue to buzz for the next few days. Be prepared for surprise run-ins with friends you haven’t seen. Don’t be surprised by impromptu dinner parties and soirees. By the end of the weekend, you’ll be hankering for some home time with a special someone, but the party just won’t quite die down. Your social calendar is going to look like a game of whack-a-mole as surprise guests and old pals make appearances when you least expect it.

SAGITTARIUS
It’s time to spend some time focused on your career. Chances are you’re contemplating a way to be autonomous and work for yourself. At the moment, you’re not intimidated by risk, and that comes from confidence not recklessness. You’ve been investing in yourself and your dreams for a while now. It’s time to start putting a plan together. As hard as it is for someone who likes to bounce ideas off friends, you would be better off for the next ten days or so keeping your plans to yourself. Chances are someone could say the wrong thing, even innocently, and derail your momentum. What you can do is make a solid plan. Use the mercurial energy in the air to get all your concepts and strategies out of your head and down into a format that’s actionable. By the middle of the week of the 17th, you should be ready to start taking intentional steps toward a future of your own design.

CAPRICORN
If you haven’t yet, it’s time to take a trip. Get out of town. At least an hour or two away. You need to be inspired by a change of scenery. A road trip with a few good friends would be ideal. Go somewhere you can be physical–hike, run, swim, dance. Consider the amenities of a college town. There’s nothing like getting away to give you new perspective on yourself. Have fun, but find things to do that won’t break the bank. This isn’t about luxury travel. This is about hitting the reset button. Read a good book. Have a heart-to-heart chat with a foreigner. Find yourself in places that are not your home.

AQUARIUS
You’re feeling a little bit naughty, and for the next several days, you’re going to be obsessed with your own secrets. Normally you orbit around sharing your distinct vision of the world with anyone who will listen. Right now, though, you’re playing your cards close to your vest. It may be because the thoughts bouncing around your noggin are some of the strangest, wildest, scandalous, and dangerous ones you’ve ever had. Even you’re not sure they’re ready for prime time. You may also acquire some secrets–juicy ones–close to home. Rather than respond or react, just hang tight and let things unfold as they will. By the middle of the week of the 17th, you’ll start to have perspective and context, and those secrets will start to make a little more sense.

PISCES
You’ll be spending quite a bit of time near the surface for the next several days as your social life floats front and center. You’re going to be looking and feeling great and ready to be in the public eye. The weekend promises to be filled with fun surprises. You may find yourself at a wedding before the weekend’s done. And by Monday, you’re going to be in the mood to call off work and keep playing. The surprises continue through midweek, and you may even receive an unexpected token from a secret admirer.

Virgo II Forecast 9/2-9/11

The following horoscopes for September 2 through September 11 are simple sun sign forecasts. Serious predictive astrology is done on a chart-by-chart basis. The horoscopes here share themes of self-confidence, self-sufficiency, a focus on material gains, and an enigmatic quality of turning each sign’s natural tendencies inside out:

ARIES
Keep an eye on your checkbook, Aries. True to form, you’ve been rocketing ahead at breakneck speed, but it’s time to stop and reconcile your balance. Look for errors, transposed numbers, or unexpected bank fees. The weekend of the 8th is a great time to make progress on goals you’ve been putting off. By the top of the week you’ll be feeling organized and focused, but Monday may find you in a foul mood. Give yourself a little treat to get you through the day.

TAURUS
Take some time for self-reflection. Look back through old journals or Facebook posts. Consider everything you’ve accomplished in the past nine months. Do something fun and physical for the weekend. Competitive games will give you a boost. The top of the week will find you centered and feeling the afterglow of an entertaining weekend.

GEMINI
You may find yourself a little down and brooding. Your dark twin may be making a daylight appearance. Things that you’ve kept compartmentalized are likely to rise to the surface. By the weekend you’ll want to spend time home alone. You may decide to do some in-house, low-key entertaining, but don’t be surprised if you decide against it. In fact, you may decide to play hooky from work on Monday too.

CANCER
Be prepared to meet new people and make new friends. Folks who are quite a bit different from you, but who intrigue you and make you okay with leaving the house and going out. It looks like you will have quite the social weekend, and in a turn of events, you might be surprised by the realization that an acquaintance could maybe be something more. But this time, Cancer, you need to be direct. No crab walking around this one. Your week will have a sweet start. You’ll be ready to hang out at home, but you might just be in the mood to invite someone over.

LEO
Prepare for a busy work week with job demands taking front and center. Your weekend will also be focused on money matters. It’s time to pay bills, reconcile your bank statement, and take stock of your assets and liabilities. The top of the week would be a good time to look for new employment prospects, a career change, or new revenue-generating projects.

VIRGO
Let the good times roll. You may have a birthday this week, but even if not, it’s your season, celebrate anyway! Luckily you should have plenty of energy to get you out and about. Plan to get decked out and feel fabulous on Saturday night. Go somewhere. Don’t sit at home. You’ll find fun wherever you go. And believe it or not, when the next week starts you’ll have a smooth re-entry. You’ll feel good and still have a little money in the bank.

LIBRA
Plan to lay low for a bit. Looks like you’re struggling with something you’re not quite ready to share with anyone else. You’re going to feel a strong urge to escape, but your health could be at risk, so tend toward reading, art, movies rather than food, drink or other ingestible substances. It’s a good time to stay close to home and indulge any reclusive tendencies you might have. Your keen sense of romanticism is going to be a liability over the next few days. Plan a quiet weekend, and don’t go poking around broken relationships or old flames you’ve been burned by before. That goes double for the start of the week when you’ll be emotional and horny–never a great combination.

SCORPIO
It’s time to activate your friends and family plan. The next few days are going to be filled with seeing folks you like and love in a lot of different contexts–many of them totally unexpected. You may run into friends you haven’t seen in years, or your great aunt may call you out of the blue. If you’re in a committed relationship, a surprise proposal wouldn’t be out of question for the weekend. By the end of the weekend and the start of the week, you’ll be ready for the reunions to die down, but they won’t as quickly as you would like. Make sure you spend ample time on the following Monday and Tuesday taking care of yourself and your personal space. Cranky Scorpios are no fun for anyone!

SAGITTARIUS
Now is a good time for you to get some work done. You’re feeling a remarkable lack of restlessness. You’ve got a plan and goals that are clearly defined. You’re taking care of your health. Your finances are more or less in order. Split your weekend between working around the house–cleaning, organizing, etc. and pampering your body. Get a massage, a mani/pedi, go for a hike, do some hot yoga. When an unexpected development pops up at work at the top of the week, you’ll be all set to tackle it head on.

CAPRICORN
If it’s all possible, you need to take a little vacation. You’re in the mood for fun and blowing off steam. You’re feeling confident and uncharacteristically care free. Get out of town if you can for a long weekend. You’re likely to meet new people and have some entertaining adventures. You may even surprise yourself by letting loose, breaking some rules, and staying up past bedtime. At the top of the week, you’ll start to get a twinge that you need to rein it in and be responsible. Push that aside for a day or two more, and enjoy yourself.

AQUARIUS
Your energy is likely lower than normal right now. Your mental instincts are not feeding off motion and external stimuli. You’re getting transmissions from the inside. Strange intuition is drawing you inward. You’ll find yourself bowing out of social engagements and sticking around home for the weekend. You may utilize different methods to travel inward–natural or otherwise. There’s something you need to get, to understand, to process. Something important to you personally. Take the time and space to listen to whatever it is your intuition is laying down. By the beginning of the week, you’ll be back to your regular orbit.

PISCES
Your romantic flair is in full flourish. Get ready to spend some sensual days with a special someone, or if you’re single be ready for romance to fall in your lap. To make the most of this vibe, spend your weekend in the company of friends and friends of friends. Go to parties, tailgate, see a play, go dancing. The next few days will be ripe for surprises, coincidences, and serendipitous synchronicity. Do what Pisces can do like no one else and go with the flow. You have adventures in store, but they will find you. Not the other way around.
