It's spooky Scorpio season and Los Dias De Los Muertes, the Day of the Dead upon us: The veils are thinning as we commune with the spirit realm with greater subtlety. Which means we want to watch our spiritual/energetic boundaries right now; we are so much more receptive to unseen influences and want to remain extremely discerning, and take care about where we place our energy, right? We want to stay in the positive vibration of love frequency at all times! Of course the original tradition here is about remembering, and honouring our beloved dead. Loved ones who have passed away feel closer to us, and a lovely time to light a candle, shed a tear if we are still grieving, renew the bonds of l


November is here and the scopes are up: It's a pretty cool month to gather our energies and focus on our most on point, magical manifesting, intentions to grow, create & thrive long term... We have Libra Venus retro for the first half of Nov to finesse our love/beauty/biz attitude, and then cruise forward with renewed clarity, confidence, creatrix power and beautiful potential to succeed in love, money & life when Venus goes direct from Nov 16th... We have lucky Jupiter powering up in his rulership of Sagittarius from Nov 8th, for a whole year ahead of chasing our biggest dreams and grandest adventures with such fearless exuberance- getting ready to live large! We have the Venus/Mars trine o


PISCES/PISCES RISING The New Moon of the 8th is a lovely, fresh opportunity to think big and visionary about what turns you on right now. Adventure calls- whether it’s brewing travel plans, an exciting new creative venture, a next level education scenario (as teacher or student) to expand your professional horizons-or just living large on your own terms that much more? Because it’s all about Jupiter and Mars switching signs right on this Moon as follows: Lucky Jupiter into your biz sector from the 9th is bound to exacerbate any vocational restlessness, and get you all revved up to profitably expand your career horizons over the next 12 months. Could be some crazy promising new gig/opportunit


AQUARIUS/AQUARIUS RISING Lucky Jupiter revving up your biz sector for the last year has had you restless as hell to expand your professional horizons and cooking up all kinds of promising schemes to that end, right? So Jupiter completing this cycle, right on the New Moon in your biz sector of the 8th is a great opportunity to action all this: You reflect on which of your recent plans have turned out to be merely hare-brained schemes/and which ones are actually realistically do-able; and worth taking a brazen, brilliant risk on. And once you’ve figured that out, you get a lovely fresh perspective on the fine detail of realizing your professional agenda this month. Also because with Venus retr


LIBRA/LIBRA RISING Oh how glorious to have your ruling love goddess, Venus, back into your sign all November; It’s like a booster shot of your innate, raw charisma/beauty/glamour/charm/talent/creativity/savvy biz instincts to power you through the month and feel particularly fabulous-go you! I mean Venus retro for the first half of Nov might have you doubting yourself or hesitating a little but that’s fine; you’re just finessing the plan/gathering your energy for the full blown expression of Libra brilliance that you unleash upon the world with Venus direct from the 16th -oh yes, you’re about to be on fire lovely one… (Ps -especially if you’re feeling a bit drab early Nov; no way do you emba


VIRGO/VIRGO RISING So the Venus/Mars trine of Nov 10th potentially streamlines your earning situation nicely this month, as follows: Mars in your work sector for most of the last 6 months has fully energised your work ethic, and you’ve been persevering with your career plans with steady determination and the quiet certainty that they’re going to pay off eventually. So Mars ready to move on mid month has you reflecting on just how much vocational progress you’ve made lately; and the trine to Venus in your income sector is a cool clue about how to monetise all this hard work as effectively as possible -this is so promising… Bearing in mind that Venus retro for the first half of Nov could be te


LEO/LEO RISING With lucky Jupiter in your home sector recently, you’ve been thinking big about how/where you want to live, and ready to challenge your comfort zone to do so–restless much? Maybe you’ve been feeling into a travel bender, or even (long distance) relocation? Or a big property/real estate scenario going on? Or looking to connect more with your extended family/tribe, the better to love each other up? Or maybe you’ve been craving a bit of space and emotional oxygen from familial/domestic demands, to refresh your mojo? The New Moon of the 8th is fresh perspective on all this, preparing to lush up your domestic sanctuary as a gorgeous base from which to spread your wings in the world


CANCER/CANCER RISING Well with your famous nesting sensibilities, you are one of the signs most likely to love Venus in your home sector for the whole of November right? It’s primo time to beautify the home décor, plan a reno, profitably think about some property/real estate deal and/or harmonise the loving family/co-hab dynamic in your life. The domestic vibe is sweet, aesthetically inspired and lovely for creating the perfect sanctuary in which to thrive: But it is worth noting that Venus retro for the first half of the month is better for scheming/dreaming & quietly laying the groundwork for all this; then Venus direct from the 16th is a much smoother energy to move forward, explore any d


GEMINI/GEMINI RISING Ok so everybody is preoccupied by mating season-and we’ll get to that later, but first we need to talk about the Gemini career this month: You’ve had lucky Jupiter in your work sector for the past year; and by now well aware how restless you are to ditch any compromising day-job shizz and/or bust a move on exploring your full professional potential in the world. Especially with Venus lighting up your confident, self-expression sector all Nov- ready to show off your brilliant talent much? Venus retro for the first half of Nov is all about drilling down on the creative process, and overcoming any blocks that have been holding you back lately. Because the New Moon of the 8t


TAURUS/TAURUS RISING So you are one of the signs most likely to enjoy the Nov mating season (yay!), as follows: It’s all about lucky Jupiter in your love/partnership sector for the last year, where you’ve explored a more confident love with someone special, or been playing the field for fun romantic thrills and spills, or maybe loving the freedom of traveling solo & emotionally unencumbered? So as Jupiter moves on, you have the New Moon of the 8th also in your love sector; to reflect on what you’ve learned about your romantic proclivities/current relationship etc –for a fresh perspective on where you want to take it from here? Maybe your relationship has grown to a point that you’re having


ARIES/ARIES RISING Oh my, the Aries love life firing up much? I suggest you harness your most passionate instincts and get ready for mating season this month: Because Jupiter in your sex/intimacy sector for the last year has revealed your full capacity for an emotionally generous, positive approach to loving unconditionally-and that’s saying something for a hot blooded little lover like yourself! So how cool that the New Moon of the 8th picks up all that heightened romantic inspo you’ve been brewing, and run with it… Maybe you’ve had a slightly restless period in your relationship lately (thank you Jupiter) and now you get to reconnect with a fresh perspective? Perhaps a new appreciation of


CAPRICORN/CAPRICORN RISING So Venus in your biz sector for the whole of November is a fab inspo to lift your career game; and it’s all about how attractive and compelling your professional moxy is, more than necessarily hard yakka that’s going to get you ahead right now. Could be the sheer quality of your talent –doing whatever you do exceptionally well- that revs up your confidence to get out there and shamelessly promote your brilliance in the world; to possibly brilliant effect I might add. Could be time to polish your brand/ fire off a killer job application or pitch for some gig you’ve got your eye on? Or maybe just polish up the work wardrobe/dress for success to make the right impress


SAGITTARIUS/SAGITTARIUS RISING It’s all about your ruling planet, lucky Jupiter in Sag firing up your fabulousness from Nov 9th –for a whole year ahead of hitting your stride, living large and embracing success with magnificent self-assurance… OMG finally! Because it feels like the pressure of Saturn in your sign in recent years was so challenging –and then switching to your income/security sector this year was kind of a relief but also upped the ante on the stressful challenge to get your financial shizz together, dammit. And Jupiter in your soul sector all year hasn’t been so much an escape from all that; as a constant reminder to focus on the inner, spiritual work/personal growth etc to d


SCORPIO/SCORPIO RISING Well to the extent it’s all about Venus in your sign for months on end this year, to power up your gorgeous charisma in the world; you might have mixed feelings about Venus retro, retreating backwards into your soul sector for the whole of November? On the one hand it could be frustrating to have to step back-just when you’re mid momentum with whatever love/beauty/biz self expression has been turning you on lately; and focus a bit on your inner life instead? But then again it could be a relief to take a temporary break from the imperative to incessantly flaunt your brilliance (as fun as it is and all); the better to take some regenerative down-time/healing process/chec


So if the slight heaviness and stressy energy in the air lately has been getting you down, what with retro Venus in league with Mr wet-blanket Saturn & all? Thank goodness for Mercury conjunct lucky Jupiter for the next few days! Hallelujah! It's all about thinking big, beautiful and positive. We get to step back from any immediate dramas and see the most expansive view of our full potential and brilliant, open ended, happy outcomes to look forward to ... We get a glimpse of the Jupiter in Sagittarius phase, coming up from early November -where we're all going to be optimistic, visionary, free thinking wild things and loving it! Yes the future is coming and it's looking mighty fine x Image:


Only one more week of this somewhat harrowing Venus retro in Scorpio -are we managing to keep our cool....(or at least pretend to, lol)? Because we want to be cool & composed for Venus pulling herself together in Libra in 3 weeks time, without having had a volcanic, drama queen Scorpio meltdown in the meantime, right??? Venus direct from Nov 16th is our renewed love, money, beauty and art mojo, people -let's be ready x


Taurus Full Moon, exact 2.45am October 25th, AEDT -and it's delicious! Full Moons are always a rising up whatever emo we have been dealing with all month; and in Taurus we tend to feel strongly about our physical wellbeing and physical pleasures -primarily food & sex of course, money, security, biz and ok, our own stubborn point of view about everything, lol. And it's worth noting that to the extent emotions are always intimately connected to our physical body, we tend to hold our emotions (especially unexpressed ones) in our muscle memory and experience them as physical sensations; in Taurus we are even more likely to do so. So it's worth paying attention to what our bodies are telling us r


Image: the divine Christian Shloe New Moon in Libra (exact 1.46pm Oct 9th, AEDT) ready to turn us on to lovely new possibilities. New Moons always reveal fresh emotional oxygen and a crisp, clear attitude for the coming month. And in Libra it's our love, romance, relationship, creative, biz and money moxy that's ready to be be renewed-ready or not! Because the main influence here is Pluto newly direct square this Moon -it's a fierce, transformative, creatively potent determination to thrive that drives us right now, for sure. In biz we work our most sparkling Venus talent with such confidence, because it's by shining bright and doing our professional thing so well that we attract the most lu


Image; the sublime Gregory Colbert So Pluto just turned direct, after 5 months stalled retrograde -yet another planet back on the move to drag us out of retro season and happily embracing forward momentum again. But Pluto doesn't do superficial progress folks; it's more a deep, challenging and enduring influence on our lives we're talking about. Pluto is our capacity for gutsy transformation, genuinely courageous passion and handling any power dynamics in our lives (especially the really gnarly control freakery) with a solid internal locus of power. Because the shadow of Pluto is attempting to exert power over others or handing our power over to someone else cos, you know, it's too scary to
