NEW MOON SCORPIO – Reclaiming Lost Innocence

 

 

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/18 – 11/25

The New Moon Saturday the 18th November falls in Scorpio, a sign from which it is particularly potent. The symbolism expressed is that of death of one order to allow for the rebirth of a new one. The recent migration of Jupiter in Scorpio has already revealed how far people are willing to go for change. Not just transition, but complete cathartic regeneration. The next 10 months will no doubt contain soul shedding moments during which much is stripped away in order for this renewal to take place. Spiritual gestation is required. Scorpio is the area that contains our most intimate and usually shared experiences.

Traditionally, Scorpio is associated with envy, destruction, vengeance and antipathy. These qualities, however, are really just a reaction to the loss of innocence that occurs through the awareness of mortally, or some other tragic event. What occurs symbolically through Scorpio is this loss of innocence, and it’s recovery to be renewed with greater wisdom of life in the sign of Sagittarius. This can be a very spiritual period, as Scorpio’s great virtue is to become aware that things only die in form, and that everything is reborn on a new and higher level of reality, or even within the nonphysical plane altogether. Every individual will venture through their own personal Hades, in order to undergo the process of a loss of innocence, then may respond negatively, or instead heal through awareness and gain wisdom, coming back to the surface with renewed understanding for what is possible.

This has been a long journey, going back to October 2012. This is when Saturn first brings the issue of the matter to attention, usually by generating strife or anemic conditions around a topic that requires dramatic restructuring. (This had occurred where Scorpio lies in your chart.) This is followed by a long retrograde period of Mars in the middle of 2016, which cauterizes the wound one would have thought healed. The searing quality of that period required a complete reconsideration of the strategies and methods being used to resolve the problem. By early August of last year, these are implemented, and a new path is ready to be taken. Now good fortune shines and offers healing potential, as Jupiter transits this area. Innocence was lost and now is ready to be replaced with hope as well as wisdom.

A New Moon is a germination, and holds all the promise and potential of the symbolism of its placement. At the time of the Full Moon, on the opposite side of the cycle, the promise is revealed. During a New Moon phase, the guarded emotional self – the anima, comes into precision with the expressive self – the animus, as they merge into one. There is great strength in that precision, as a complete renewal occurs between the two most significant dynamics of personal expression. This particular lunation (fancy word for the phases of the Sun – Moon cycle) offers an especially stunning opportunity to plant intentions the future. Aspected by the healing asteroid Chiron, an especially favorable omen, use this time wisely to find where and how you can best grow spiritually.

STARSCOPES:

april2-copy   ARIES March 20 – April 19
It’s time to open yourself to the possibilities of the future. The Sagittarius Sun shifts a light to the potentials you seek to cultivate, suggesting a brighter outcome than you may have imagined. Even the limitations or restrictions you have endured over the last few years begin to pull back with the tide, revealing that the maturity you have gained as a result of overcoming some intense obstacles was worthwhile. Keep at the journey and your ship will come in next year. The New Moon points to what you share with another and your expectation of what they will share with you. It takes place through a connection that requires profound trust. This could be a huge punctuation mark if you need to assert yourself more clearly and express your inner needs. Intuitively you’ll know what to do. Partnership dynamics require a lot of TLC during a period of significant restructuring over the weekend.

may2-copy   TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Who and how you love (prob. dark and stormy) is highlighted during the New Moon and either a new chapter can begin in an ongoing relationship or fresh opportunities to connect on the horizon. (You may reread the essay above and apply it specifically to your partnerships.) The connection with Chiron suggests this is a special friendship for you as well and that your wishes and hopes can come true through this person. You’ll notice a shift in ambience midweek that starts to stimulate those desires. Passion is aroused on Tuesday and you can level up a relationship or meet someone with incredible potential. The erotic energy will be potent. An emphatic shift of attention to the expectations you have in your most trusting relationships is due over the next month. Evaluating who brings what to the table and how it gets cut up and divided is a huge topic for the rest of the year, with some beguiling twists and turns ahead.

june2-copy  GEMINI May 21 – June 20
It’s likely a new job or promotion comes your way over the New Moon that allows you to resolve a challenge related to your feelings of self worth. A career vision is coming back into view and you begin to reveal your plans over the coming months. Between now and mid June you have the best opportunity available to lay the groundwork for a major undertaking or career shift that will take place in about a year. Work or an assignment you are offered now has a huge hand in that outcome, kind of like moving chess pieces, so remain strategic about what you agree to. From Tuesday, and over the following month, a key partnership is emphasized and whatever develops over the coming weeks will provide you with assurance that you have learned and grown a great deal over the past few years through relationships and conscientiously defining and redefining your expectations. A transformative moment in a love relationship on Sunday can be draining. Choose to disengage from belligerence.

july2-copy   CANCER June 21 – July 22
A Scorpio New Moon has wish fulfillment written all over it for you, especially where something very close to your heart and that can offer you pure pleasure plays a leading role. If you’ve been hankering to get busy with a creative pursuit this is the time. Equally, inspiration can hit hard and trigger your mojo. Work, the job, the gym (or any form of physical exercise,) and your ultimate productivity as a result is the topic that requires your utmost through New Years. A very hard working phase is coming to an end. You may get intonations as early as this week, it will be in December things really culminate. One way of life comes to an end, another begins. Watch out for dicey partnership dynamics on Sunday, as this is a winner take all situation. It doesn’t have to be one if you sidestep around a showdown. Tuesday is another story altogether. You can kiss and make up, but better yet there is nothing to make up for.

aug2-copy   LEO July 23 – August 22
New Moon in Scorpio highlights your inner world and offers a moment to reflect on how you could best cultivate a rich and spiritually rewarding life. This may involve your residence, but equally if not more important the relationship you have with the people you share it with, if any. It may be about the relationship you have with your family or feelings connected to the past. It’s also a good time to simply withdraw and take some time out. This will rejuvenate you immensely. From Tuesday a more outgoing vibe comes in, as Sun in Sagittarius activates your desire to play, love and express yourself. You have developed a great deal of discipline and while this has been worthwhile, this phase is concluding, and you’ll find it’s easier to let go from here on out. This doesn’t mean you need to forget what you have learned over the past few years, rather let those skills enhance your game.

sep2-copy   VIRGO August 23 – September 22
You are beginning to feel more connected to others and your social life is vitalizing and quite exciting right now. A hard worker by nature, and withdrawn at times, you do well to use the prevailing energies to try some new things and forge some new alliances. Mid week, Neptune resumes direct motion, and a relationship may resurface from out of the deep blue. The enticing fantasy nature of this connection is equally beautiful to you as it is beguiling. If things have gotten out of control and you are drowning in confusion, it’s time to set some clearer boundaries. Although you’ve likely reflected on the ideal scenario you would seek to be in with this elusive individual, but what is required of the situation is to let go of the illusion that you can have control and be immersed in the realm of emotion this person provides you. Just have a few boundaries in place before you dive in! Tuesday is ideal for getting together and experiencing the richness of the passionate flow that exists between you.

oct2-copy   LIBRA September 23 – October 23
It’s a great period in which to focus on resources and how you both earn and retain them. With a decadent shopping and spending season ahead, it’s time to start storing those acorns up for winter. New flows of income are opening up for you, and immeasurable abundance is possible. It requires some effort on your behalf to keep focused now on your earnings and doing what you have to do to earn that royalty, paycheck or commission. Tuesday is excellent for putting a plan into action that will elevate your potential for success. A very important phase begins next month and you’ll be working very aggressively towards the goals you set now. A very contentious issue may arise for you this weekend, and it’s time to assert your boundaries or make a very personal change. This can happen very privately and in silence or it can be push comes to shove. After Sunday, things are different, one way or the other.

nov2-copy   SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

Obviously Scorpio is front and center right now, the annual New Moon in your sign is a time of renewal and renaissance. Your vitality is enhanced by following your instincts now, even if they seem irrational. In a love relationship that may have seen many ups and downs, the allure is returning. Tuesday morning is especially potent for expressing romantic and erotic desires to the one you favor. Love mojo is strong and you could turn up an intriguing match while on the way to work or running errands. Financial concerns become a hot topic over the coming month and there will be opportunities to find a solution to shortcomings, bringing a longstanding issue to a conclusion.

dec2-copy   SAGITTARIUS November 22 – December 21
With the Sun set to enter your sign Tuesday you are getting closer and closer to achieving a long range objective. Just four more weeks of Saturn in your sign, and it’s time to take stock of what you have learned and how you have changed over the past few years. You may not instinctively be the most reflexive by nature, but events recently are reveling depths of your psyche that are quite intriguing. Amplified by the New Moon this Saturday, you may tend to be a bit more withdrawn, and this is an excellent period in which to develop a meditation ritual, journal or even start therapy if you are discovering there are some things you need to let go of. Domestic matters that have been hazy or confusing may begin to be addressed from mid week. You have undergone significant internal changes, and these may rush up in a tidal wave of vision, dream or even through an ESP experience Wednesday AM. Tune into what your subconscious is telling you. There are some real gemstones awaiting you at the bottom of that ocean.

jan2-copy   CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
You continue to feel more robust as you tune into the long range objectives. As Sun moves into Sagittarius on Tuesday, a reflexive period begins. This one is particularly special as it corresponds precisely with the timing of the last month of Saturns’ transit in the same sign. In a month, within nearly 24 hours of one another, Saturn then the Sun enter Capricorn, generating an incredible atmosphere in which you can thrive through your unrelenting determination and grit. This last month is a gift, a journey into the very personal and interior transformations you have made over these previous years and making peace with your past. What happens next is extraordinary, but will be incredibly demanding and will require levels of discipline that even for stable Cap will require several lifestyle modifications. Right now it is appropriate to rest and prepare for one of the most valuable and hopefully successful periods of your life. Sneaking in a little romance on Tuesday will do you well.

feb2-copy   AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Your star rises under the auspices of the New Moon this weekend. You are likely considering new avenues, wondering where you would like to go next professionally and thinking about the mark you want to leave on the world. You benefit now from incredible opportunities to make substantial changes or expand upon your current operations. Money flows (or blockages) can also be addressed from mid week, and a confusing situation about the how and where settled between now and next June. From Thursday into the weekend the Moon transits your sign, making you feel magnanimous and fulfilled. If you are in the U.S. and celebrating Thanksgiving, you will be an incredible host! Sun in Sagittarius from Tuesday brings a festive social/holiday season to boot and shines on the incredible friendships you have developed over the past few years. The list of people close to you may not be long, but the significance and depth of those relationships is very meaningful, as you are coming to realize.

march2-copy   PISCES February 19 – March 20
The New Moon reverberates for you in a most loving and beautiful way. You see vistas opening up before your eyes and even the parts of your soul you may have thought were dead or encrusted are breaking open and reaching out for air and into life. Trust this feeling. It is a beautiful time to be alive, and it will continue to get better. Neptune direct in your sign from Wednesday morning restores the flow. Anticipate a huge tidal wave of emotion and psychic energy to arise, all the dreams of the last several months come back up and what you thought you were but had forgotten is restored. Float for a moment on these, process them, embrace all the energy around you. Listen again to what is inside you. Trust it. Sun in Sagittarius places an emphasis on where you are headed. Over the coming month you’ll reflect on how far you’ve come and make a few decisions about what comes next. Events on Tuesday conspire to bring a little sexy to the love life. Enjoy!

STAR SCOPES (BY SIGN)

april2-copy   ARIES March 20 – April 19
Chance of cloudy, partial thunderstorms this month, as Mars sends vexing influences over from your area of partnerships, intensifying your relationships with others. The 4th, 19th and 1st of next month can all be contemptuous and your temper can get the best of you. Turning points and a dynamic atmosphere is present. Paradoxically intimacy is highlighted and flourishes with beautiful developments on the 13th, 16th and 21st especially. There is a push – pull dynamic as you adjust to a new flow in your relationships. The New Moon on the 26th spells it out clearly. Events on the 12th and 22nd are significant and provide awareness. Journeys and travel could feature this month, but expect delays or changes of plan in December.

may2-copy   TAURUS April 20 – May 20
It remains a busy month for work, but partnerships are very much emphasized. The New Moon on the 18th is quite powerful and illuminates a new chapter in your love life, featuring someone very important to you. Romantic energy is already enhanced by the 8th, and you’ll find others are more receptive to your advances. The 16th and 21st are positively magical for deepening a bond or taking a commitment to the next level. Circle the 13th, the most wonderful day of the year, highlighting your union and how far you can take it. A serendipitous meeting may transpire. Watch out for an issue with your career interfering with the progress you are making at home around the 19th. A vexing situation on the 19th could be problematic at work for you.

june2-copy   GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Mars stimulates your area of self expression, making this an ideal period to move forward with personal and creative projects. Venus’ lingering influence though the first week of the month puts you in the pleasure zone. You can make a long term commitment to a person or project on the 3rd. Work is also emphasized and you will likely be making big strides on the job, the 13th and 16th really stand out, and highlight the creative potential in a new position. New Moon on the 18th reveals the details. Stunning financial indications are in play on the 21st and you can (and should) really negotiate for what you are worth. A long term commitment remains in frame, and it is through a relationship you may see the realization of a cherished dream around the 11th. This story has been playing out for about a year, and it is possible you met this person in a group environment or through friends. The 25th and 28th are ideal for articulating your feelings.

july2-copy   CANCER June 21 – July 22
The Scorpio New Moon on the 18th continues to send signals that it’s time to engage a creative outlet or get after a personal desire for recreation and love. The 13th is among the most pleasurable of the year, and the 16th and 21st are also very stimulating, urging you to connect deeply with your partner. Venus illuminates this area brilliantly from the 8th and you will be in the sweet spot. Enjoy the good vibrations, and if you are still on the lookout, use that New Moon on the 18th to send a message to the universe to attract your true love. Mars (from October 23rd) is providing a more contentious climate within your personal and domestic life and you may be dealing with very personal issues in this period as well. It could be that family members are a source of frustration, or that there is some upheaval within the home. In some cases you are going back to the roots of endemic issues that have been present since your childhood, and there can be some psychological land mines that get triggered in this phase and require some kind of therapy, reflection or remediation to be dealt with. Such issues can rise to the surface swiftly around the 19th, pay close attention to the feelings that emerge on this cathartic transit, as they will reveal much to you in the ways in which old attitudes are holding you back from the attainment of something genuine in your partnership.

aug2-copy   LEO July 23 – August 22
Venus joins Jupiter in your area of residence this month to bring really good vibrations to your domestic environment. The 13th and 16th are extremely positive to acquire objects of value and beauty that will enhance your home and offer peace within it’s walls. A move or change can be put into motion on the 18th. Upgrades are possible. You get news around the Full Moon on the 4th that all the hard work you put in during April and May are paying off. While you’ll enjoy the prestige you gain in this period, your attention is turned to more personal and familiar topics. Children and self expressive activities occupy your time for the next 2 months with a long range endeavor taking root around the 11th.

sep2-copy  VIRGO August 23 – September 22
This month will require a balance between your work and social obligations. You may be doing very well at a money making endeavor but required to split your time with friends and companions. There is a busy if not hectic quality to daily life that will ultimately be exhilarating. You can really enjoy love and companionship on the 9th, 13th, 16th and 21st as harmonious vibrations make it possible to deepen your connections with others. A housing matter culminates positively on the 11th. It’s likely taken years to see the improvements you have sought, and it is in this time you may find the resources are averrable to make a residential dream come true. The next phase (beginning next month) is about cultivating you personal gifts of creativity or starting a family, so you are going to need a strong base to rely on!

oct2-copy   LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Very exciting social opportunities are present and this is a good time to catch up with people you may have lost touch with over the prior, very busy phase. A lot of effort and energy is still required to make the most of financial opportunities, a trend that lasts through next January. A lucky break on the 13th signals a creative opportunity in your profession is unfolding. The 16th is a time to put your inspiration to work for you. A romantic or business relationship continues to escalate, or exciting prospects can emerge between the 3rd and 11th. A sense of stability and commitment offers you a feeling of incredible satisfaction, especially if this road has been bumpy. The Full Moon on the 4th allows you to seal the deal on a commitment. Watch out for prickly situations with family members on the 19th. Everything else is going so well this month, don’t let this beast rain on your parade!

nov2-copy   SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
The Full Moon on the 4th highlights your partnerships and beautifully augments your commitments. Passionate and romantic undertones are present, and you may, with Jupiter also on your side, be making meaningful connection with a spouse, or even marrying at this time. Venus in your sign from the 8th enhances your ability to receive pleasure, and the 13th, 16th and 21st are set to be the most romantic of the year, dive in! Financial matters and energy gestating behind the scenes for you will likely divide your attention, but are worth the effort. Conversations and agreements on the 17th, 25th and 28th, particularly those made behind closed doors, will benefit the future of your finances. A very quarrelsome energy is present on the 19th, and a skeleton in the closet starts making a lot of noise, reminding you it is time to let something go. A New Moon in your sign on the 18th gives you a new lease on life. You feel great in a healing role, even if you only provide this for yourself.

dec2-copy   SAGITTARIUS November 22 – December 21
A job or assignment comes to completion around the time of the Full Moon on the 4th, or you may be realizing success with a health related matter, such as a weight loss goal. There is much to attend to in your most private life, though friends and daily life will still vie for ample amounts of your attention. Finding a good work – life balance is therefore crucial, and harmonizing the need you likely require for rest (after a very hard working phase over the last few months) while also celebrating your recent successes with associates, will be the presiding forces at work over this busy month. A creative endeavor or love relationship can really take root in this phase. You have mastered your impulsive nature through conscientious expression of maturity and can now see these matters come to lovely fruition.

Socially this is a great time for you, so do carve out time for friends and associates. The 13th, 16th and 21st are all super lovely for interludes and connecting with the ones you care for. Romance can also grow in these favorable conditions, especially during the sensual Full Moon on the 4th.

A collaboration with Mercury on the 28th allows to articulate the peace you have made with yourself.

feb2-copy   AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
A balance between your social life and finding time to develop the remarkable professional opportunities available to you this month will make for a lively period. Venus and Sun join Jupiter and many exciting offers are flowing to you now. The 13th, 16th and 21st are especially auspicious and you can make a great impression, particularly if you work in creative industries. A tough energy present on the 19th signals you are hiding something or need to release an issue from the past. A sense of surrender or release could be transformative in this vital period. Mercury from the 6th sees you in touch with all kinds of interesting people, and you can connect easily through social activities on the the 11th, 17th and 25th. An older friend imparts meaningful advice on the 28th.

STARGAZER FORECAST OCTOBER 2016

… OF MAGIC AND MASTERY

Mercury begins the month by retracing its’ steps through the last decan of Virgo, clearing the airwaves and removing the residue of the prior 8 weeks as clarity and conviction resume. By the 11th, a long sought after breakthrough is likely as the third Mercury – Jupiter conjunction signals the beginning of a new cycle of growth and expansive activities. Publishing or media can feature, though this energy is equally helpful for articulating our feelings in a relationship and mending fences that may have been damaged over the prior phase.

Mercury leaves shadow on the 7th, swiftly entering Libra for a brisk two weeks. The pace is socially oriented and art events and creative activities can really be enjoyed, especially with well heeled friends or associates. Look for clues around October 4th, when Mercury transits the degree of last months’ Pisces eclipse (September 16th). News or a decision regarding events around that time can now be finalized and put into place. September was a messy month, and it’s around this time we can really find the closure we seek and genuinely move forward. Missed and mixed messages finally reach their intended audience.

Intense Lunations this month feature wild card Uranus conjunct the Aries Full Moon (October 16th) and a passionate New Moon in Scorpio connecting to mystical and visionary Neptune from Pisces on the 30th. Many big changes are afoot, and a sense of new beginnings and transformation should prevail. There is a real keg fire quality to the events of mid month, with Uranus in play there can be a real desire to authentic self expression at any cost, with bridges burned in the melee provoked, so watch where you light those matches, Sparky. The 30th allows us to release all the tough Scorpio lessons of the last 3 years and rekindle our relationship to passion. The Moon is smitten with Neptune at this time, making this one really sparkly, romantic, glamorous and inspirational. This vibration makes for an especially magical All Hallows celebration.

SATURN SQUARE NODES: FACING THE FUTURE

Saturn is prominent in October, traveling further from the hazy auspices of Neptune that provided so many challenges over the last year, while moving swiftly into a square with the nodes, an aspect that comes most precise around October 8th. Saturn represents time and structure, endless and relentless – the nodes the past and future, as well as destiny and where opportunity for development lies. With Saturn in this position, we come to a pivotal place in our journey. A crucial assessment occurs here. Are we moving in the right direction? Have we truly embraced where we are headed? Taskmaster Saturn may well ask, are you ready to do the work to get there and do you posses the skills required?

The nodes represent a direction in space and our current evolutionary orientation, with the path we should travel indicated by the North Node and thus what we set behind as we move towards that direction, it’s polar or axis opposite, the South Node. On their own they don’t provide a specific atmosphere the way the planets in signs do.

It’s only when the nodes become activated by transiting planets (and of course, most notably, during strong eclipses, which is why these periods are so volatile!) that their influence is most readily experienced and thus able to integrate. Nodal contacts are meant to get us back on course, to embrace that path we are supposed to travel. With Saturn’s highly pressurized, diamond making abilities stimulating that course, this transit presents an opportunity to realign with that objective, though there is equally a painful reminder of what we have left behind or surrendered in order to do so as a consequence of those choices. As much of the year has served thus far, the advancement of life choices, agendas or enterprises that transpired in 2013 is the ongoing theme here.

In this case you may want to think back specifically to September of that year. It was at that time a North Node – Saturn conjunction took place at 8 Scorpio (sextile Pluto 8 Capricorn, no less). Goals set or endeavors that unfolded in that period are being tested and recalibrated now. Our agenda undergoes a period of crisis and transformation as Saturn reaches this pivotal point. The nodes appear to travel backwards, so the current evolutionary objective resides in Virgo. The house being transited in your chart is “where” (the evolutionary emphasis and greatest opportunity for growth is present) and the energy symbolized by the sign representing “how” you will get there.

Again there is the theme of “are you ready to work for it” and with Saturn in the mix these are long range objectives, things you spend many years of your life working to manifest. When you get there, the feeling of accomplishment is so immense, because it requires determination to overcome the many obstacles and because nothing short of mastery of self and the material world also played a role in your success. With the North Node active you should find if you are doing the right things, doors open up for you. If you make the effort and get out of the comfort zone things fall into place. With Saturn the work here is doubled, and the square suggests the sacrifices could feel enormous at this time. You are acutely aware of what you are letting go of as you reach to obtain the future you know intuitively you have to move towards.

Mars in Capricorn (through November 9) amplifies this all enormously. The tenacity required to get what we want is available right now. There is a rough and ready quality to October and you can go very far this month if you are willing to focus your activities, dig in and put in the work. Mars harmonizes the nodes on the 15th (from 12 Capricorn), making this a productive day for insight and advancement. Mars conjunct Pluto at 15 Capricorn on the 19th initiates a two year cycle of transformational activities and reclamation of power. There can be malevolence with this aspect when used for personal gain, and even violence. At it’s best and highest this represents a true merger between two entities that seek catharsis through their affiliation. Together they make something so much bigger, better and especially – powerful. From Capricorn this could indicate a business merger is big possibility, but look specifically to where this falls in your chart to see where you will experience this dynamic surge of energy as this is where you will be making a crucial and life changing commitment.

A SPRINKLING OF FAIRYDUST…

Cinderella by NikitaCosplay @DeviantArt

Venus in Sagittarius (from the 19th) and Jupiter in Libra will keep the ambience outgoing, social and genuinely positive. A unique aspect forming on the 25th – 26th draws together Jupiter and Venus in mutual reception (Jupiter rules Sagittarius, transiting Libra, while Venus rules Libra, transiting in Sag.) forming a sextile while both align with visionary and inspirational Neptune. Meanwhile, Moon in Virgo conjuncts the North Node! Amazing! There is something quite romantic and magical about this configuration. Affection and generosity will be enhanced. The alchemical Jupiter – Neptune quincunx (Venus and Neptune will be square,) adds a fairytale connotation to the whole vibration, while Moon to North Node means we are emotionally and intuitively attuned to the appropriate path we should be on. Good fortune comes where we have prepared for the road to the future. It’s a really divine atmosphere and something quite significant may come to fruition under these auspices.

oct26

The following day, Sun and Mercury conjunct at 3 Scorpio, signaling the beginning of a new four month cycle of activity and communication. The following 6 weeks are the most productive period of the Mercury cycle, and it’s likely events that have transpired over the recent days stimulate the agenda here. We will see the objectives and projects we initiate now come to fruition over the next four months.

ARIES: The pace is accelerating in all key areas of your life right now. A significant personal milestone can be reached mid month, as the Full Moon in your sign on the 16th pulls the trigger on an exciting chain reaction that lasts through the New Year. A new or developing relationship might be the cause of celebration and excitation. The unexpected features largely here, and you may be the recipient of a new, prestigious role professionally or through your university. The 29th brings all the details to light. A lost connection can be rekindled after the 7th. You’ll find it much easier to express yourself to the one you care for.
