Ready for the New Moon in Sagittarius on Saturday, December 4th? Ready or not, it’s coming for you. Fortunately, it promises to bring good tidings and positive blessings just in time for the holidays! This month’s New Moon features a total solar eclipse. Solar eclipses are extremely significant events that usher in new beginnings and bright new opportunities.
Inevitably, when something new begins, something old comes to an end. Whatever is outdated or that no longer holds a relevant place in your life is likely to be eclipsed out of it during this time. Whatever leaves your life now wasn’t intended to remain with you on the next stage of your journey. Let it go with grace, gratitude and peace of mind.
The energy of an eclipse doesn’t exist only on the actual day of it. Instead look at the 5 days preceding and 5 days following the date of this eclipse for any significant messages, occurrences or epiphanies. You may experience something as significant as moving to a new place, or something as small as a casual remark from a family member or friend that delivers a startling wake-up call to you.
As significant or as insignificant as these experiences may seem, they are likely to have a long-standing impact on the way you approach your life moving forward.
Examples of experiences that eclipses often bring are:
- News of a birth
- A proposal
- A new job opportunity
- The establishing of a business
- A home purchase
- A breakup
- The loss of a friend, family member or pet
- Sudden epiphanies
Eclipses mark a major turning point in your life and this one is no different. The Sagitarius energy of this eclipse amplifies and expands this energy even further, providing you with the courage and boldness to go after what you need in your life at this time and the bravery and decisiveness to let go of what’s no longer relevant, despite how painful and reluctant you would normally be.
Eclipses provide the energy, drive and reassurance for you to accomplish things you normally would avoid or be too timid to pursue. They also bring experiences that speed up decisions that the universe knows are inevitable for you - whether you choose to remain in denial about that or not!
Eclipses often bring the blatant and inescapable truth about a person, place or situation right to your doorstep and psyche. Trust any hunches or gut feelings that you receive during this time, even if they come in the form of something as insignificant as gossip or social media posts, the messages that you receive and that resonate with you on or near an eclipse are extremely significant.
Lean into them.
The energy of the New Moon in Sagittarius is optimistic and positive. Because it features a solar eclipse, this energy will feel especially strong and hopeful. Carry or meditate with an empowering sacral chakra crystal like Carnelian or an intuition-strengthening crystal like Amethyst in order to make the most of this powerful energy.
If you are a Sagittarius or Gemini, you will be particularly affected by this eclipse. This especially true for those born between November 30th and December 9th, and between May 31st and June 9th.
Here’s what you can expect for your sign amid the Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius:
Expect new beginnings and gut instincts as it relates to the way you approach child-rearing, dating, flirtation, sexual and/or creative expression. You are likely to receive insights about your kids and potential lovers, Aries.
Don’t be surprised if you receive revelations about your health or your job during this time, Taurus. Picking up a new lifestyle habit, exercise routine or diet is favored by this eclipse.
Are you looking to take things to the next level in your relationship, Gemini? You may find yourself falling in love. Expect to begin a significant new chapter in your relationships and with those closest to you.
Your intuition will be at its height during this Moon phase, Cancer. Lean into any hunches or gut instincts that you experience during this time. Sexual experiences are likely to be deeply transformative under this influence. You may unexpectedly receive money and/or find yourself reflecting on mortality a bit more than usual. Take time with yourself and allow yourself to experience the full range of emotions that you are inevitably going to experience.
It’s time to expand those horizons, Leo! Lean into your natural-born courage and boldness. Whether you’re contemplating a trip to an exotic locale, registering for college courses, or exploring a discipline you don’t know much about, don’t be surprised if you decide to finally check something off of that bucket list this week!
New job opportunities are highlighted for you during this period, Virgo! You may finally receive that job offer or promotion, otherwise you’ll decide that the career you’re in actually isn’t the one for you after all. Check in on a father figure of your life during this time.
Any revelation that you receive about a friend should be taken seriously now, Libra. If you’ve wanted to know who, when all is said and done, will have your back until the very end, you are likely to find out for sure now.
The time you spend alone, in contemplation or in meditation, will be especially valuable to you during this time, Scorpio. Take time to journal, introspect, or to enjoy a spiritual bath. The insights you receive now, while alone, will be significant and potentially life-altering.
You are in the spotlight during this eclipse, Sagittarius! You are likely to make a significant decision or to experience a strong epiphany ushering you in a brand new direction regarding the way you approach and experience your life. Any conservatism that may have hindered you from pursuing your truest dreams and deepest desires will be unveiled and released now.
Your focus will be on fine-tuning the elements of your life that make you feel valued and secure - or the complete opposite of that! Whatever is getting in the way of you being your best self at work or in relationships are likely to feel intolerable to you right now, Capricorn. This eclipse will give you the decisiveness and drive to go after what builds your confidence, or to remove the aspects of your life that tear down your self-esteem.
Expect significant news and messages via text, social media or from siblings and neighbors. Take whatever information you receive now seriously, Aquarius.
Your family arrangement or living space is likely to be spruced up or changed altogether, Pisces. Home purchases, signing a new lease, a new roommate or a new addition to your family are highlighted during this eclipse.

On December 24th, Saturn in Aquarius forms its third and final square to Uranus in Taurus. Look back at what occurred in your life around the time of the first two squares that took place on February 17th and June 14th. They will clue you in to what you can expect during this month’s square.
Collectively, the events that this transit will create tension in our desire for freedom and our need for stability.
Jupiter will enter Pisces on the 28th, closing out 2021. This phase will usher us into an era that highlights the need for intuition, introspection, philanthropy, selflessness, sensitivity, and deep spirituality.

Are you sitting down? Good. You need to be. November's full moon on November 19th highlights a partial lunar eclipse in Taurus - and frankly? It's going to be a little over the top! In astrology, full moons are periods of culmination. Unresolved issues that have been lurking in the background will be brought to the forefront of your consciousness for resolution and closure.
Lunar eclipses intensify the standard strength of your typical full moon, adding to its sense of urgency and emotional charge. Things that have been swept under the rug in your relationships and life circumstances will be brought to a head for a conclusion.
You're likely to feel that your patience and tolerance have been spent during this time. Your emotions feel like they're bursting at the seams and this will be a period where you finally decide how to move forward from people and situations that have left you feeling bothered and unsettled. This will be particularly true for if you are a Taurus, a Cancer, or if you have strong Taurus or Cancer placements in your natal chart.
If you were born between November 14th and the 24th or between May 14th and the 24th, you're going to feel this energy particularly intensely!
Taking place in the sign of Taurus, we can collectively anticipate that this full moon phase will bring a period of culmination as it pertains to matters dealing with major societal structures - especially the economy, and our collective sense of security.
This month's full moon squares Jupiter, strongly suggesting the potential for overindulgence, extravagance and reckless behavior. If you find yourself being a little charge-happy with your credit card or letting your guard down as it relates to COVID-precautions, this is why! Take heed that you may be feeling a little too optimistic right now and slow down.
On a positive note, this month's Full Moon in Taurus makes a harmonious aspect to Pluto providing us with the extra drive and support to make overdue changes and to positively transform ourselves and our lives from circumstances that have been holding us back. Any decisions that we make now are likely to go off smoother and without a hitch.
Another thing to note during eclipses, in general, is the strong potential for endings. Relationships can end and people may quite literally eclipse out of your life. Regardless of what happens during this period, you can rest assured that it is happening to move you closer to your intended purpose in life. Some people are meant to join you in your future journey, and some aren't.
Whatever doesn't remain in your life during this time wasn't meant to.
Eclipses also tend to bring major news, random (but significant) events and sudden realizations. Any epiphany that you experience during this eclipse, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, marks a shift in your consciousness. Something - a person, situation, or even an outdated perspective - is ending in order to make room for a new beginning.
An important note: This full moon features a partial lunar eclipse. Take it that you are in the dark about something and may not have the full picture about a person or situation. Take any revelations that you experience seriously, but hold off on making any permanent decisions until the energy of this eclipse subsides in the five days that follow it.
This eclipse marks the first of a series of eclipses that will last between now and October 2023. Collectively, we will experience shifts in our major societal structures (especially the economy), what we place value upon, and what makes us feel safe on a universal scale.
Expect shifts in the the way we earn money, the value that we place on various forms of currency (hello, cryptocurrency) and what makes us feel safe and secure as a society.
Here's what your sign can expect to experience during the full moon partial lunar eclipse in Taurus:
- Aries: What do you have to hide, Aries? Expect sudden revelations as it relates to secrets you've been keeping from others - or even yourself. Now is a time for therapy, meditation and deep introspection.
- Taurus: Expect shifts in the way you present yourself to society at large. You are likely to switch up your appearance or your outward personality. Get ready Taurus, this full moon marks the beginning of a brand new you!
- Gemini: Issues related to debt, your personal finances, your sense of self-worth or the things that make you feel physically or emotionally vulnerable will arise now for conclusion or resolution.
- Cancer: Now is the time to scratch up on your communication skills, Cancer! You may decide to start journaling, to join a virtual writing group, to purchase that laptop you've been eyeing, to download that app that will help streamline the way you communicate with others, and with yourself. Take this time to strengthen your social media presence, it may pay off significantly over the next two years. An important conversation, an epiphany, or a shift in your relationship with a sibling or neighbor is possible during this time.
- Leo: Now's the time to get in touch with your roots, Leo. Your focus will be shifted to strengthening your foundation. Whether you're moving, redecorating your home, or figuring out how to strengthen your relationship with your family, expect that the way you approach home and family will shift. New awareness surrounding those things will begin to be sparked during this moon phase.
- Virgo: You've been responsible and reserved for so long, Virgo! Now's the time to loosen up and to prioritize FUN. Expect a boost in your creative self-expression. The way you approach sex, dating, love, creative self-expression, and your relationship with children will begin to shift now. Get ready.
- Libra: This full moon phase marks a renewal in your daily habits and nutrition. Incorporate a new diet or workout routine and stick with it for the long haul, Libra. You may make a realization about the ways you've been approaching work, health and exercise and finally decide to make a change and cut out bad habits standing in the way of a better, happier you!
- Scorpio: In a serious relationship? You may both decide to take things to a more serious level, or to split up altogether. Hold off on making any permanent moves until the energy of this eclipse subsides. Scorpio, you may find that you're a bit more impulsive than usual during this moon phase and you don't have the full picture on where you stand in your relationship yet!
- Sagittarius: Expect and embrace shifts in the way you view and experience sex, death, and investments. Deep interactions with another is highlighted during this moon phase. Keep an open mind, Sagittarius. Allow this experience to transform your perspective.
- Capricorn: Have you been feeling boxed in, Capricorn? Now's the time to pursue personal freedom. Expect major shifts as it relates to circumstances that have been restricting your growth or preventing you from experiencing life in a sincere and fulfilling way.
- Aquarius: Your career is highlighted during this moon phase, Aquarius! Are you unhappy in your field of work? If so, you may finally decide to make that career shift now. Happy with your career? Expect recognition and achievement for all that you've done. That hard work and dedication had better be paying of, otherwise you're likely to decide to go where you're better suited and appreciated. This is a period of lifestyle design. You work to live, not the other way around! You won't be able to tolerate anything different now.
- Pisces: Are you being taken for granted in a friend group, Pisces? Do you feel like you've outgrown your friends or that things have become stagnant or toxic in your relationships with others? Expect revelations that will shift the way you approach friendships, volunteering, humanitarianism, activism, your overall involvement with groups and your awareness of global issues.
Special note for all signs: The energy of the Full Moon in Taurus is especially chaotic. You are likely to feel particularly raw or vulnerable because your ability to absorb energy is intensified. Heal and ground yourself with protective crystals like Black Tourmaline to better withstand the tumultuous experiences that will inevitably accompany the Full Moon in Taurus phase.
Take special note of everything that you experience during this eclipse. They are simply a preview of what's to come for you between now and October 2022.
The themes highlighted for you now will take center stage in your life for the next two years. Buckle up - the way you approach these themes in your life are about to permanently change.

November is going to be a month that sheds light on the things lurking underneath the surface of all of our lives. With Scorpio Season remaining in effect for much of the month until the 21st, trust that your inner investigative nature is likely to make an appearance!
This will be an introspective and transformational period where many of us will be focused on growing and healing. The period surrounding the New Moon in Scorpio taking place on November 4th in particular is ideal for shadow work or to engage in reflective and meditative practices like crystal healing, reiki, yoga or taking spiritual baths.
A Full Moon partial lunar eclipse will take place on November 19th in the sign of Taurus. Look out for urgent revelations and sudden conclusions relating to the balancing of your needs and the desires of those close to you.
Here's what you can expect for your sign in November:
Since Scoprio season began on October 23rd, you may have found yourself paying increased attention to matters related to sex, death, inheritance or investments. Experiences and people related to this, or to all things taboo and hidden under the surface, have been highlighted for your awareness and reflection for the majority of this month. Adding to the intensity that this month will bring for you is the New Moon in Scorpio taking place on November 4th, illuminating a transformational area of your chart. Expect positive new experiences and beginnings with a lover, or financially. They are likely to positively transform your perspective and approach to life.
The following day, Venus will light up the area in your chart ruling your profession. Your money-making abilities are likely to be boosted for a full four months until this cycle ends in early March 2022. Secure that bag, Aries! Use this opportunity to ask for a raise, or to otherwise make upward moves in your career! Later in the month on November 19th, someone, something, or a situation that has been getting in the way of you feeling like your best self is likely to eclipse out of your life. Or you may decide to take steps toward ending a toxic relationship or leaving an unhealthy environment in the three days preceding and following the 19th.
It is likely to be an emotional time for you so take a moment to reflect and recharge. Whoever or whatever exits your life at this time wasn't meant to remain for the long haul. After the heavy energy and experiences during the week of the 19th, you may feel like getting away when the Sun enters your house of travel, expansion and exploration on the 21st. Embrace the bolder and more daring energy that's entering your life now while you have a chance! When the Sun leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn at the end of December, it will be time to put your career hat back on.
The sun has been illuminating the area in your chart ruling partnerships and marriage since late October. Are you thinking about taking things to the next level with your significant other? Or are you reflecting on whether or not you should call it quits? New relationships (or a fresh start in an existing relationship) are likely to occur on or around November 4th, when the New Moon in Scorpio breathes new life into your serious partnerships. The following day, on November 5th, Venus enters your 9th house adding a sense of beauty, good fortune and enhancement to the area of your chart ruling travel, expansion, bold moves and new experiences. You are going to enjoy this period, which will last for four months until early March. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone Taurus!
Whatever bold moves you make now are likely to work in your favor. Use this period to expand your horizons.
Learn something new or explore a new locale. The full moon taking place on November 19th will feature a partial lunar eclipse. This period will be one of self-awareness and self-actualization for you. You may have been in the dark when it comes to an aspect of yourself that hasn't been serving your relationships or higher self. You are likely to have a slight epiphany about something you have been in denial about or that was kept hidden from you. When the sun enters Sagittarius and your 8th house on the 21st, you will notice an energy shift on a focus towards sex and investments.
Sex will take on a healing and deeply transformational slant during this period, a perfect phase for exploring sexual healing modalities like tantric sex, tantric self-pleasure, or something more intense like BDSM. That would be an excellent phase to work on balancing your root chakra.
The Sun has been illuminating your 6th house since late October, emphasizing your focus on health, work and daily habits. Your focus on these areas will likely continue until the Sun enters Sagittarius and your 7th house on the 21st, when your attention will shift to how you can contribute your newly revitalized self to the improvement of your close relationships. Strengthening your focus on this area will be the New Moon in Scorpio taking place on November 4th. The period surrounding the 5th of the month is an ideal time to begin a new daily habit that will benefit your health or your work. Can you squeeze in a quick HIIT workout between Zoom meetings? What about a mindfulness or walking meditation during your lunch break? Have you been curious about starting a Keto diet? Now is a great opportunity to embark on a new beginning as it relates to your health and exercise habits.
You may even find yourself making a new connection with a coworker as your mind shifts to adding more structure to your work, your diet and your health. The highlight of November for you will take place on or around November 5th when Venus shines beams onto your 8th house of sex, investments, and other people's money for a full FOUR months. Don't be surprised if you receive a sudden unexpected windfall, or if you embark on a journey of sexual healing that transforms you on a mental, emotional and physical level.
At the end of the month on November 19th, a partial lunar eclipse will take place in the area of your chart that rules hidden enemies and your subconscious mind. Pay attention to any insights you receive from your intuition or gut feelings during this period of time, especially as they relate to frenemies. When Sagittarius season begins on the 21st, carve out some time to strengthen your bond with your significant other or business partner.
The Sun has been lighting up your 5th house of fun, flirtation, creativity and recreation since Scorpio season started on October 23rd. Enjoy three more weeks of good times, enhanced artistic abilities, and increased opportunities for flirting! Lean into this by tapping into your inner child. You know how the saying about all work and no play goes! Take this time to have fun before the Sun enters your house of well-being and work on the 21st, at which time you'll find yourself having to take on more of a structured approach to life. The New Moon taking place on November 5th will further illuminate this area of your chart; you may pick up a new hobby, create something, or lock down a cutie for cuffing season!
This is an ideal time for working on your sacral chakra, or carrying orange and yellow crystals.
The most exciting news for you this month is an extended visit from Venus to your seventh house of long-term relationships, marriage and business partnerships - and she's bringing blessings and positive vibes with her! Expect a boost of good fortune when it comes to your relationships. What starts out as a fun flirtation early this month may end up standing the test of time over the next several months. Are you already in a serious relationship? Don't be surprised if things reach a higher level of intimacy over the next four months.
At the end of the month on November 19th, a partial lunar eclipse takes place in the area of your chart ruling your social circle. Take it that there's something you didn't previously know about someone in your friends group. You may receive an epiphany and this may be an emotional time for you. Whatever realizations you make now are unlikely to be fully revealed or resolved until the Taurus solar eclipse in April 2022. Tread cautiously and take time for yourself!
It's time to get your house in order Leo! Prepare for a month that focuses on foundations of all kinds, especially as they pertain to your home, your job, your health and your family. The New Moon taking place on the 5th will emphasize your focus on family and living arrangements. Are you moving to a new place in the three days immediately preceding and following this new moon? Do you plan on taking on a caregiving role soon for a friend or loved one? Getting a new roommate? Welcoming a new member to the family?
Rest assured that you have blessings on your side. Now is an ideal time to rearrange your home or to invest in some decor that will breathe fresh life into your crib. Your new living or family arrangements are likely to be beneficial or to otherwise work out in your favor. Venus will shine lucky beams into all endeavors relating to your health, daily habits and work for the next four months, beginning on November 5th! Have you been thinking about picking up a new workout routine or diet? Now is the time to start - you are likely to receive impressive results from it that will be evident by the time this cycle ends in March 2022.
Despite all of the positive vibes from the Sun and Venus, keep an eye out for a partial lunar eclipse taking place in the area ruling your career. Take it that you may be in the dark as it relates to something going on at work or in your professional field. Whatever it is is unlikely to be revealed until April 2022.
Expect to spend more time with your siblings this month, Virgo. Whether it's in person or virtually, this month's focus will be on your communication with siblings, neighbors, your use of (and purchasing of) technology, and short local trips. This is a favorable time for short road trips or purchasing new gadgets. The great news for the month is when Venus lights up the area in your chart ruling friendships, fun and creative endeavors.
Use this period of time to focus on picking up new hobbies, tapping into your creative side, or embracing your fun, flirtatious side.
Better yet, combine the two! Sign up for a few art or dance classes. Online dating will also be especially fruitful during this phase. On the 19th, a full moon partial lunar eclipse will take place in your house of expansion. Are you itching to make bold new moves, or to set up travel plans? Take your time, and make sure you cross your t's and dot your i's before booking that flight. Lunar eclipses conceal. Take it that you may be in the dark about something you were looking forward to boldly embarking on.
When the Sun enters Sagittarius and your 4th house on the 21st, your focus will naturally shift to matters relating to your family, your foundation, and your home. Use that time to take care of any loose cracks in your house or in your family relationships before they get out of hand!
November will shed new light on your sense of self-worth and more tangibly, your financial worth. You are likely to find yourself reevaluating the yard sticks and other people to which you compare yourself and your successes to. This is the perfect time to embark on new activities and experiences geared toward boosting your self-esteem, finances and sense of worth. This is especially true with the New Moon in Scorpio illuminating this area of your chart on the 5th of the month. Any new jobs, side hustles, or self-esteem boosting endeavors are favored during the three days preceding and three days following this phase.
The highlight of the month for you will be when Venus lights up your 4th house of family, home and real estate. Expect good fortune and blessings as it relates to those areas and for the entire four months that Venus will remain in that area of your chart. Keep your eye on a partial lunar eclipse taking place in your 8th house of sex, transformation, death and other people's money. Lunar eclipses conceal, and with this partial lunar eclipse occurring in your area of things lurking underneath the surface, take it that you are in the dark about something related to your investments and sex life. Whatever it is won't be revealed until April 2022, so be sure to vet any potential sexual partners or investment opportunities with a fine-tooth comb.
Sagittarius season arrives on the 21st, shining beams on the area of your chart ruling siblings, technology, short-distance travel and neighbors. You are likely to purchase and/or receive gadgets for Christmas and to spend increased quality time with your siblings and neighbors. These experiences will be especially meaningful and beneficial for you during this time. Short distance travel is emphasized this month through to December 21st for you specifically.
Of all the signs, you are among those most likely to be embarking on an above average amount of short-distance travel for the holidays so buckle up!
Now's your time to shine, Scorpio! You are likely to receive increased attention now through to the end of the month when the Sun enters your second house of value and self-worth. This is particularly true on the 4th when the New Moon in Scorpio lights up your first house of self - you are likely to receive a level of recognition for something you've been diligently working behind the scenes on. Take credit where it's due Scorpio - you deserve it!
A special treat for you will begin on the 5th of the month when Venus enters the area of your chart ruling your relationship with siblings, neighbors, technology, and short-distance travel. Venus will remain here for four months during which you are likely to see a boost in these areas of your life. Whether you plan on speaking at a conference, to start a blog, establish a social media presence, or to dive into online dating, expect increased communication during this phase - it will work to your benefit financially and/or romantically!
Be wary, however, of a partial lunar eclipse occurring in your house of partnerships and marriage. You may be in the dark about an issue as it relates to your spouse or business partner. Whatever it is will come to light during April 2022's solar eclipse, so hold tight!
What has your intuition been trying to tell you for the past week or so, Sagittarius? Whatever gut feelings you have been experiencing since the 23rd of October are likely to continue through to the end of this month. Pay close attention to them, because whatever messages you receive during this period of time are likely to be extremely valuable for you. This is particularly true during the period surrounding the New Moon on the 4th and the partial lunar eclipse on the 19th.
New Moons are a period of new revelations and experiences whereas Full Moons are a period of culmination and conclusions.
Don't be surprised if a hunch you have around the 4th is confirmed during the period surrounding the Full Moon in Scorpio taking place on the 19th. But don't boldly act on your hunches yet, Sag! Lunar eclipses conceal - whatever hunches you receive may only be partially true, with the rest to be revealed on or around late April 2022. The best news of the month for you? Venus entering your house of finances, self-esteem, self-worth and beauty.
The period between now and March 2022 will be a literal glow-up for you! Tap into this energy by investing in your finances, your appearance, and in building any skills that will boost how valuable you are in the workspace and from a romantic perspective. All the introspective work that you do now will feed the highlight of the year for you which will be your birthday phase beginning on the 21st.
Do the inner work now, during the first three weeks of the month, so that your outer self can begin to shine when Sag season begins at the end of the month!
Sure, you're the boss chick of the zodiac. But you don't need to keep your work hat on all the time, Capricorn! As the hardest working sign in the zodiac, I am personally giving you permission to shift your focus from career into your social life. Believe it or not, investing in yourself socially will not only boost your friendships, it can also have beneficial effects on your career and overall health. Don't neglect that opportunity this month, Cap!
This is especially true during the period surrounding the New Moon in Scorpio taking place on November 4th. You may embark on a new friendship that will prove extremely valuable for you. This will become especially apparent six months from now during the Full Moon in Scorpio taking place in April 2022. The highlight of the month for you will take place on the 5th when November enters your first house of self and appearance. Venus will remain there for the next four months.
You are likely to find yourself focused on your physical appearance and the way in which you present yourself to others. Both will be enhanced and will become more refined and attractive! Expect increased attention during this period; people will take notice of you and are likely to respond to you favorably. Invest in a new wardrobe, schedule cosmetic treatments, or take a public speaking course to ensure you are presenting yourself in a way that accurately reflects who you are.
A partial lunar eclipse is taking place in your house of children, creativity, fun and recreational sex. Lunar eclipses conceal. If you're a parent, pay close attention to your children. If you're single and mingling, make sure you thoroughly vet a potential lover before meeting up in person or having sex. If something is hidden now, it is not likely to be fully revealed until April 2022.
You've been on a journey of expansion and knowledge-building, Aquarius! Now's the time to apply all that you've learned and experienced to your profession. The New Moon in Scorpio taking place on the 4th is likely to provide an opportunity to enhance your career. If you are interviewing, applying for, or starting a new gig in the days preceding and following this new moon, your endeavors are likely to go well. Venus enters your house of introspection and intuition on the 19th and will remain here for the next four months. Looking for love? It will come, as long as you do the inner work first! Take moon ritual baths, get reiki, focus on your yoga practice and/or meditate regularly.
When you shift your focus to love of self, you will attract love from others without even realizing it.
The period between now and March 2022 is ideal for engaging in shadow work. Dig deep into who you are - flaws and all. Acknowledge and accept all aspects of yourself, even the parts you may be ashamed of or in denial about. You are not perfect, but you are worthy of love. And you can't love another until you love yourself first. This period is intended to remind you of that.
Keep an eye on a partial lunar eclipse taking place in the area ruling your family and home. You may be partially in the dark about something relating to your family, home or real estate. Hold off on making any major decisions, like purchasing a home or selecting a new roommate, during the week of the 19th.
Go big or go home this month Pisces! November offers a rare opportunity to live boldly as the Sun and the New Moon in Scorpio lights up the area of your chart ruling travel, expansion, knowledge and enlightenment. You may find that the travel bug bites you really hard this month with you biting the bullet and booking that vacay you've been putting off all year. Not in a position to travel? You are likely to find opportunities to expand your horizons within the confines of your neighborhood, whether it's through visits to museums or signing up for some courses.
If you choose to expand your awareness in some way this month Pisces, don't be surprised if you find your social circle expanding as a result! Venus is entering your house of friendships on the 19th where it will remain for a full four months. Enjoy a larger social circle and newfound popularity through to March 2022! Have you been experiencing any issues with your neighbors, siblings, or with technology? Don't aim to make any major or permanent decisions relating to those during the three days leading up to and following the lunar eclipse taking place on the 19th. Take time and watch how you communicate with your siblings and neighbors during this time.
Lunar eclipses conceal. Whatever is hidden relating to those things is unlikely to be fully resolved until April 2022. Overall, this will be an expansive month for you, Pisces! The knowledge and connections that you make from your new experiences over the next several weeks are likely to create a confident new you that could potentially aid your career growth during Sagittarius season and beyond.

Have you been prioritizing the needs of others over your own? Feeling stretched thin as a result? This month's Full Moon in Aries will ensure that you start putting yourself first. It's about time, Queen! Deep down you know it's overdue. In astrology, the Full Moon is a period of reckoning, manifestation and culmination. You are likely to find yourself on a fast track to resolution or closure when it comes to the people, relationships and situations that have been putting an unnecessary strain on your mind, body and spirit.
This Full Moon in Aries, taking place on October 20, will form an opposition to the sun in Libra. Aries, which rules self-assertion and courage, will directly oppose Libra, the sign that rules relationships, balance and harmony.
Any imbalances taking place in your relationships now will have to be rectified, for better and for worse - no matter how much you've been trying to avoid it.
On the positive end of this, you may find yourself finally taking the leap into making things official with that special someone. Otherwise, this moon phase will highlight any imbalances in your relationships. They will be brought to the forefront of your life in some shape or form so that they can be addressed or concluded. Expect to finally receive closure over an issue that may have been bothering you on a subconscious level.
Don't be surprised if you receive revelations about friends, your significant other, your job, or a close loved one who you may now realize has been taking your kindness for weakness.
Have you been financially supporting someone in good faith but are now starting to feel a little salty about it? Your hunches about feeling taken advantage of will likely be confirmed in some shape or form. If you've been dating a hobosexual on the low, you are likely to come to the realization now and cut that person loose!
Any relationships that end or revelations that you receive during this time are meant to set you on a path that is better aligned with the people, places and situations that are most beneficial to you.
The energy of this moon phase is especially suitable for self-care. Take some time to pamper yourself! A moon ritual bath is an ideal way to heal and manifest during most full moon and new moon phases. This is especially true if you are dealing with a breakup.
Here’s what your sign can expect during October’s Full Moon in Aries:
You will decide to take your relationship to the next level, otherwise you will cut them loose.
If you've been carrying more weight than normal financially or at work, it will be addressed during this period.
Expect issues with neighbors or siblings to be brought to your attention for immediate resolution.
Work-life balance incompatibilities that have been simmering underneath the surface may finally come to a head now. Whatever happens is intended for your greater benefit.
Feeling isolated from your friends due to your responsibility as a parent? You will figure out how to strike a balance now.
Schedule a visit with your doctor to figure out the source of that nagging, mysterious symptom you've been dealing with for the past few months.
Now's the time to put your foot down in your relationships. Never feel guilty about making your needs clear to others. Whoever takes offense to what's best for you isn't meant to be in your life at this time.
Has sex or a lack of sex been getting in the way of your bag? Or of you feeling anything less than the Queen that you are? Sexual incompatibility of all forms are likely to be addressed during this time.
Don't be surprised if you find yourself taking a brief impromptu trip locally or abroad in the week preceding and following this moon phase!
You may finally hit a stride in your career where you finally enjoy a healthy balance between your work and your home life. Your career may now set you on a path to experience a closer relationship with your fam, or to finally put some money down on your new crib.
Do you feel like you're being pulled in two different directions when it comes to old friends and new friends? Now's the time to reflect on who is meant to join you on the next part of your life's journey and who you've outgrown.
You are likely to receive an epiphany or significant message of some sort during this period. Pay attention to your dreams. They may reveal something noteworthy about your health or your job.
A Full Moon is an ideal time for gaining closure, or for manifesting all that you've dreamed of and have worked hard for. Use the dynamic and fresh energy of this moon phase to bring your dream life to fruition.
The primary theme of this month's Full Moon in Aries is that of establishing balance and boundaries between yourself and your loved ones.
Choosing to put yourself first isn't selfish. It's self-care.

If you are looking for love, are trying to put that spark back into your relationship, would like to reconnect with your ex or an old friend, or are contemplating switching up your look with one of your favorite old styles, then the new moon on October 6 is for you! Taking place in Libra - the astrological sign that rules relationships, beauty, justice and harmony - this month's new moon will highlight all of our romantic and platonic relationships.
The New Moon in Libra is urging us to correct any imbalances and to right any wrongs that have been causing a rift between ourselves, our friends, our significant others, and the way we view ourselves physically. It's time for a new beginning with the people you value the most, but who you may have been drifting away from.
In astrology, the New Moon is a period of fresh beginnings. A New Moon in Libra cycle is typically an excellent time to embark on a fresh, new relationship. However, because this New Moon is taking place during a Mercury Retrograde period, your best bet is to use this time to reflect on a relationship that went awry that has the strong potential to be salvaged.
Whoever you meet for the first time during a Mercury Retrograde is unlikely to remain in your life for the long haul. Therefore, this isn't an ideal time to refresh that online dating profile (if you're looking for something serious, that is!). Unfortunately, because this new moon is hitting Mars at a tight angle and is quincunx-ing Uranus, many of you won't heed this advice! But don't say Jayde didn't warn you!
Many of us are likely to find ourselves giving old relationships a second chance in the three days preceding and following this New Moon. There is also an increased chance that you will take this time to address relationship imbalances and right any wrongs that have interfered with your ability to interact harmoniously with others, both romantically and platonically.
Single? Now is the ultimate time to get your work/life balance in order. Figure out how to adjust your schedule in order to incorporate mindful activities on a regular basis, like morning yoga or a ritual moon bath regimen. This is also a great time to refresh your look if you've been falling behind on your hair or nail appointments.
Here’s how your sign can make the best use of October’s New Moon in Libra:
