It's Scorpio season and the veil between the worlds is thinning today...Happy Dios de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, Samhain, Halloween! Let's embrace the otherwordly magic of this -and have fun with it for for sure, whilst keeping any deeper spiritual and shamanic realisations here high-end and positive... May we meet any shadow aspects of ourselves -or each other, or our dear departed that may come up during this festival with profound and transformative compassionate & unconditional love right now xxx


November is here, it's looking good and the scopes are up. It's kind of all about Jupiter newly in Scorpio; a potent combo of fresh, expansive good fortune with spunky self belief & personal satisfaction. We are all masters and mistresses of our own destiny now! Also jumping in the deep end emotionally, and really feeling where we're at right now; the better to cultivate a healthier, more honest relationship with ourselves and enjoy a fearless, sexy authenticity with our most important connections and entanglements. Not least because we're getting ready for Saturn to switch signs by Christmas-where any thwarted Sagittarius restlessness is released; freeing us to direct our energy to proper C


SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING Well it’s pretty good to be you right now. What with Jupiter newly in your sign you are full of expansive, visionary optimism and a whole year ahead to explore some bigger adventure/travel/taking an intelligent risk on whatever makes you feel most alive… You can feel this in your bones already and it’s such a turn on to claim your personal freedom at this point! And then with Venus into Scorp from the 8th you are looking at peak Scorpio gorgeousness, charisma, romantic genius and creative confidence this month. You’re hawt and you know it and so, apparently, does everyone else –it’s your time to strut your stuff and shine... And then the Venus/Jupiter hook up of the 14


SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING Look I’m not going to lie to you, the last few years of Saturn in your sign has been a royal pain in the arse right? And you may be wondering where all the fun went/how you have become such a workaholic/disciplinarian/how so many dreary obligations have got the better of you lately -aaargh? But admit it: you have nailed some cool new biz & career moves/workout & health regimes/integral personal growth here –or capacity to do so, huh? Yes you are moving forward more fiercely on point than ever; and the great news is that by late December you will have a tangible sense of the shackles falling off, and with the benefit of well-earned success in the world to suppor


CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING It’s all about preparing for late December; when your boss planet Saturn hits your sign and two years ahead to explore your full, delicious viability in the world as a biz/professional success story, paragon of healthy lifestyle discipline and widely respected pillar of society –on whatever level turns you on… Yep you’re about to get your shizz together on every level –so right now, with Saturn completing a tour of your soul-sector is prime time to prepare to walk your talk with a healthy, integral relationship with self/shamanic self-mastery/whatever spiritual practice works for you. Meanwhile Jupiter newly in your social sector is brilliant for finding/ bonding w


AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING Lucky Jupiter newly in your vocational sector is such a beautifully authentic, promising new confidence to your professional potential in the world! The very act of believing you are capable of more success/recognition/cash/job satisfaction/freedom of movement/autonomy in your career is what magnetises the right kind of opportunities to you – know what I mean? Especially with Venus on board from the 8th, your core, brilliance talent and professional charisma is peaking. It’s prime time to be really good at what you do –and the creative discipline that comes with that, particularly around the Full Moon of the 4th. And also dressing the part/shmicking up your look/rock


PISCES/PISCES RISING Gosh, with taskmaster Saturn preparing to get the fuq out of your biz sector in December (finally!) and restless Jupiter newly in your adventure sector-could you be busting to break out of routine and bust a move on something new already? Maybe a well deserved holiday over the festive season, to replenish your energies for the year ahead? Or a cool, visionary new life plan to turn you on? Or Saturn delivers some biz venture you’ve been working on in recent years; which you get to embrace with refreshed fervour for the professional freedom that’s in it? Either way you are newly inspired by life in all it’s infinite potential –especially around the New Moon of the 18th -wi


ARIES/ARIES RISING Oh my, it’s Aries mating season and preparation for a big new career cycle this month – gosh it’s all on right now! So let’s start with love: lucky Jupiter has recently completed a tour of your partnership sector, where you have embraced a more trusting, open-minded, unconditional approach to serious commitment, yes? And now Jupiter gets down to business in your actual sex/emotional intimacy sector; and with Venus on board from the 8th romantic love is totally in the air… Especially around any spooky new feelings coming up around the Full Moon of the 4th, and any spooky connections revealing themselves around the New Moon of the 18th. Some aspect of your romantic dynamic t


TAURUS/TAURUS RISING The Taurus Full Moon of the 4th is a pretty good way to start the month, by taking a fearless emotional inventory of whatever’s coming up for you right now and vowing to remain congruent, and true to thyself about it for the rest of November. Not least because Saturn is now wrapping up a lengthy tour of your 8th house, where you’ve been facing off any deep-seated emo demons vulnerabilities and claiming a whole new emotional maturity and fortitude in order to do so; the better to enjoy a more honest relationship with self and a greater, more rewarding capacity for powerful sexual/emotional (and financial) intimacy with others. Yep, you’ve nearly wrapped up that particular


GEMINI/GEMINI RISING So the New Moon of the 4th might have you vibing uncharacteristically introvert-and holing up with some spiritual practice/inner communion for a bit. And it’s pretty nice to take some solo, regenerative time early month, not least because it tunes you into a more inspiring, intuitive approach to your life direction (thank you visionary Neptune in your career sector); the better to prepare for the real action of November –which is lucky Jupiter in your work sector! Yes this can provoke a kind of rebellious/fuq the day-job attitude, and slacking off in favour of lushing around with your favourite indulgence/lifestyle excess/days at the beach/cocktail bar/pondering your nex


CANCER/CANCER RISING Look, if taskmaster Saturn in your work sector has been driving you mad these last few years –you need to know that the stressful lessons here are easing way the hell off by late December –you’re SO nearly there! Perhaps you’ve been under a particularly heavy workload –and wondering if it’s even getting you anywhere? You are closer than ever to seeing the rewards of this for renewed commitment to the professional plan or recognising it’s done already, you’re over it and permission to cut loose and go do something more fun for a while? Either way it’s all about things getting easier by Christmas, but meanwhile do complete any deadlines/wrap up loose ends –for the sense of


LEO/LEO RISING Well first up, the Full Moon in your biz sector on the 4th is a cool opportunity to hone your professional instincts for the rest of the month. I mean given that change-god Pluto is involved in your day-job sector, any decisions you make right now are bound to be significant –possibly professionally transformative, even game changing and maybe even potentially lucrative! Speaking of which you want to watch slippery Neptune involved in your shared resources sector; biz/money negotiations are possibly tricky-even dodgy if you’re not careful -but also a chance for next level creative collaboration and truly inspired, win-win financial solutions if you keep it clean and high-end.


VIRGO/VIRGO RISING To the extent that your ruling planet, Mercury and Jupiter in your ideas sector have been exacerbating your tendency to inflate every single detail to epic proportions lately –to the point of overwhelm? The Full Moon of the 4th is great for relaxing into a more expansive, big-picture approach to things. Because with a little less control-freakery and a little more visionary intuition you get the balance right, to feel your way into some cool new life plans for the rest of the month. And specifically seize any travel/adventure/academic/study/publishing/clearer communication opportunities; for the personal growth and fearless self-belief attitude that comes with it…yes a stu


LIBRA/LIBRA RISING So you officially have Mars energising your sign until December 10th, so it’s time to grab the exuberant personal confidence, raw energy, moxy and determination to thrive that comes with this whilst you can, huh? It’s the season to grab life by the throat by not second-guessing your own desires or primal drives, you’re so much better off embracing whatever turns you on unapologetically; for a life-affirming chance to run with it, take responsibility to make things happen on your own terms and enjoy the rewards with full lust for life! Ok and then we have the Full Moon of the 4th in your sex/intimacy sector-with lucky Jupiter on your side. It’s a chance to open up to full,


Image: Brandon Flowers Mars swans into Libra from 5am Oct 23rd, AEDT till Dec 9th, for 6 weeks of elegantly styling it up and finessing how we chase our desires and dreams... Mars is considered to be in 'detriment' in Libra; because the warrior god is all about raw, aggro masculinity and hyper Venusian Libra is considered a way too girly space to get his true grunt on? Well yeah, but let's not forget that Libra is the iron fist in the velvet glove -and can be just as determinedly wilful and bossy as her opposite sign Aries (home to Mr Mars) - just with extra velvet charms! So with Mars in Libra we come to terms with how to power forward, assert ourselves and make stuff happen -whilst also ke


Me tryna indulge my naughty appetites cos it's nearly Scorpio Season WITH greedy Jupiter in Scorp (but not till 4pm Oct 23rd AEDT), and anyway hungry Mars is void in Virgo till 5am October 23rd AEDT (not that I'm counting the hours); and until then we best embrace elegant restraint, to be honest... Hmmm we're practicing our best discipline today but we can already taste how sexy this next month is gonna be, huh? Nearly there! Image: Kylie Minogue


It's an inspiring New Moon in Libra-to do with heightened love and art mojo to turn us on -and what could be more magnificent than this operatic love song: the aria from La Wally from the extraordinary Wilhelmina Fernandez-via the cult film DIVA circa 1981? Plug in your earphones/find a quiet place and play this piece at maximum volume for a burst of transcendental bliss!


Image: Samuel Quinn New Moon in Libra coming 6.11am October 20th, AEDT. New Moons are always a fresh new perspective and emotional clarity; and this one specialises in arty creativity, beauty, biz savvy and good old romance... We are all inspired to get our classy, dolce vita, stylish attitude on -because living well matters, don't you know? And a renewed appreciation for the loveliest relationships in our lives, the better to keep it sweet, harmonious and rewarding for the rest of the month; because love and our loved ones matter-perhaps more than anything else huh? And Libra energy is always great for reminding us of this. And the big influence for this Moon is an exact, sparky opposition


Image: Davis Ayer The luckiest planet is on the move -into Scorpio from October 11th so we best look sharp and get ready for a new wave of energy to wake us up for the next 12 months... And it might be easiest to list the qualities we are dealing with here: Jupiter is our capacity for optimism, generosity, embracing expansive possibilities, adventure, long distance travel, meaningful rebellion, outlaw moxy, seriously unapologetic personal freedom, philosophical insight, abundance and -possibly-big wealth opportunities and basically saying a big YES to life! And Scorpio is our capacity for more intense (ok maybe obsessive) emotional experience, aligning with our gut instincts, digging deeper


Aries Full Moon coming up, exact 5.40am tomorrow, October 6th AEDT. Full Moons are always a rising up of whatever emotional material has been brewing all month -and in Aries it's an impatient, tetchy imperative to get on with it, horns lowered and ready to go! We are so acutely aware of our driving passions -that which matters really matters; we're gonna embrace it no matter what and any tedious distractions getting in the way can fuq right off! I have been really seeing this with my clients this week, lots of frustrations are at explosive levels and there's been a few tears; but underneath it all there is a fierce resolve to claim a more authentic way of living which is challenging but ulti
