Virgo Horoscope December 2021

Virgo, stars

Your ruling planet Mercury is in Sagittarius until the 13th, the star sign which rules your home and family, your past and where you come from. The Sun also remains in Sagittarius until the 21st, the day of the Solstice. And, action planet Mars picks up the baton in Sagittarius from the 13th to January 24, 2022.

This turns your focus towards your foundations and your loved ones. This sector of your horoscope is also where there’s major planetary activity because of the eclipse taking place.

Solar Eclipse

On the 4th, there’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, indicating a powerful new beginning. This is the last eclipse in a cycle that began in June 2020 and completes this month on the Full Moon in Gemini on the 19th.

The Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac represents the foundations of your life, your home, your work, what helps you feel safe and secure. Yet, eclipses aren’t known for stability or predictability.

Instead, they often coincide with change and the big events in life. Ultimately, the Gemini/Sagittarius axis highlights your parents, your connection to the past, your ancestry and legacy.

Eclipses sometimes coincide with an ending, when there’s a theme of letting go and moving on. In order to break free from a challenging situation, you might have to make a bold move first.

Yet, the Solar Eclipse can also represent a turn-around moment removing a block or obstacle in your personal life. If you’re trying to move home, for example, events on or around the eclipse could be the trigger you need to move forward.

The 11th & the 20th could be dates linked to a family celebration when first Mercury and then the Sun team up with bounteous, abundant Jupiter. These may be significant dates for your working life, your routine and your health.

Venus Retrograde

Also this month, there’s a lot of activity in a fellow earth sign Capricorn. Your ruling planet Mercury is here from the 13th and is joined by the Sun on the 21st. Most importantly, the planet of love and relating Venus is here throughout December.

Capricorn rules the sector of your horoscope that represents romance, children & pregnancy, creative projects, entertainment and luck. Actively embrace the pleasures that planets in Capricorn promise. Look on the bright side of life and make the most of what you have. Where can you make merry? Where can you find more pleasure and enjoyment in your life?

Venus turns retrograde this month on the 19th. As she switches direction, she conjoins with Pluto, the planet of transformation. These two planets come together on the 11th & the 25th. This combination suggests intense emotions, even obsession. If you’re in a love affair, things could turn steamy or dramatic. There may be a situation regarding a child, perhaps due to childcare issues or a child being secretive.

Tread carefully during this period in all your relationships and dig beneath the surface. Don’t be afraid of venturing into unexplored places and actively engage with what’s unknown. If you find yourself feeling disillusioned or yearning – key dates 7th & 12th – allow yourself to feel your emotions fully.

If events don’t work out as expected over the festive season, at least make time to connect and talk on a deep level between Christmas and New Year. The best date is the 29th.

Jupiter Enters Pisces

In affairs of the heart, the turning point could come at the end of December as Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, enters your opposite star sign Pisces on the 29th. Jupiter remains here until May 10, 2022. Jupiter’s really been in Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021.

Pisces represents your relationship sector, both personal and professional. This is a wonderful period to get love right and do whatever it takes to find happiness within your one-to-one relationships.

This could spell good news for a business partnership or a joint collaboration. It’s love, however, that often benefits with Jupiter in your opposite star sign. For some of you, there could be wedding bells or a second honeymoon in the first four months of 2022.

Jupiter’s influence sometimes coincides with a lucky opportunity or a blessing that comes your way. Know that Jupiter is about giving as well as receiving. Therefore, reach out to other people and do your bit to help.

Jupiter can also help to release you from a challenging relationship as it’s the planet of liberation and freedom.

This might be an emotional month for you but also potentially a time when you realise the power and strength of love.

Venus Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

  • Venus is retrograde from December 19, 2021 to January 29, 2022
  • Traditionally, it’s not the best time to marry, invest or have cosmetic surgery when Venus the planet that rules love, money & beauty switches direction.
  • Put off major love & money decisions until Venus turns direct late January.
  • Use this Venus retrograde phase to wait, be patient, consider your love or money options, go into couples therapy, learn more about yourself and what you want when it comes to love & relationships.

Gemini Horoscope December 2021

Gemini, stars

Your ruling planet Mercury is in your opposite star sign Sagittarius and your relationship sector up until the 13th. The Sun is here as well until the 21st, the day of the Solstice. Plus, action planet Mars brings passion and a competitive edge to your relationship sector from the 13th until January 24, 2022. It’s full on.

Solar Eclipse

These areas of your life – relationships/self identity – are also under the cosmic spotlight because of the eclipses. The Gemini/Sagittarius eclipse cycle kicked in during June 2020 and completes this month, December 2021.

There’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on December 4th and two weeks later the Full Moon in your star sign Gemini completes this eclipse cycle.

Eclipses are often dramatic as they tend to coincide with change. It’s hard to stay stuck in your comfort zone when you have eclipse energy propelling you forwards. That’s not to say that eclipses are easy but they are a time when you can turn your life around.

For some of you, this eclipse cycle will propel you into the limelight. Or, this may be a time when you’re re-evaluating what you want and whether you’re happy being single. You may be more aware of the impact that you have on others.

Yet, it’s not only about you and your intentions. The decisions that other people make impact on what happens in your life too. If you’re in a long-term relationship or married, events this month could determine the future direction of your relationship.

Eclipses can prove exciting and bring new people into your life, literally overnight. Notice who comes into your life on or around the turbo-powered Solar Eclipse on the 4th. New love could be on the agenda for you over the festive season.

Events on or around the 11th or 20th could be sensational when Mercury & the Sun in Sagittarius align with Jupiter your partner planet in Aquarius and your travel sector. Someone’s presence in your life could make a huge difference. It may be romantic. Or, perhaps it’s your teacher, your coach or your guide who brings about a personal transformation.

Money Talks

Another subject to focus on this month is money which may be an issue, whether you’re in or out of a relationship. The spotlight’s on joint finances, whether this is money you share with a partner or money that’s invested or owed to you.

This is because the planet of relating Venus is in Capricorn and your joint finance sector throughout December. Your planet Mercury is here from the 13th and the Sun enters Capricorn on the 21st.

You’re being urged to deal with money matters and communication is the way forward. Don’t hide letters from your bank or avoid a finance-related issue. Talk to other people and aim to seek solutions to any problems.

Venus Retrograde

However, it is important to pay attention to what happens mid-month as the planet of relating Venus turns retrograde in Capricorn on the 19th. When Venus is on go slow, this can coincide with a delay around money, whether you’re waiting for a payment or earnings are slow.

Venus remains on go slow until January 29, 2022. As she changes direction, she does so conjunct Pluto. There are two major Venus-Pluto conjunctions on the 11th & 25th. Pluto’s God of the Underworld and often brings what’s hidden to light. This could coincide with an inheritance or gift.

Yet, it may also go the other way and coincide with a financial loss. If you do experience a disappointment regarding money, slow things down rather than over-reacting. Emotions could be intense, especially if someone close lets you down. Notice where you’re hanging on tight and where you’re not ready to let go.

Often when Venus is retrograde, it’s a good time to take a step back and revise or rework your plans. Use this Venus retrograde phase to reorient your compass towards 2022.

Look at what’s working out for you financially and where you may need to make some tough decisions. Events on or around the 29th& 30th could be pivotal in pointing you in a new direction. Ideally, wait until Venus is back up to speed late January 2022, before you cut ties or move on financially.

Jupiter enters Pisces

The other big news this month involves the planet Jupiter. On the 29th, Jupiter, the planet of luck and opportunity, returns to Pisces and your career and vocation sector where it remains until May 10, 2022. Jupiter’s already been in Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021. Look back to this period in your life to see what occurred then.

Jupiter’s move into Pisces could boost your ambitions and bring a chance to play big, fly high or expand your horizons. Jupiter’s the biggest planet and represents the free spirit, the entrepreneur.

Jupiter connects you with the world too, as it’s the global planet. Reach out to your foreign connections and expand your career or purpose. Plan work abroad if you’re able to or take a sabbatical to study something you’ve always dreamed about.

Use the timing of Jupiter’s move through Pisces to plan what next. Things may peak in the first four months of 2022. Look out for a new opportunity that appears which could grow and flourish.

Think back to 2010 when Jupiter was last in this sector of your horoscope. Consider what’s happening now, where you’re moving towards and how to use Jupiter’s good fortune to the best of your ability.

At times throughout December, you may feel confused about where you’re heading – the most-important dates are the 7th & 12th. Stay faithful and know that Jupiter’s move into Pisces at the end of the month could be the key that opens the door to your future.

Venus Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

  • Venus is retrograde from December 19, 2021 to January 29, 2022
  • Traditionally, it’s not the best time to marry, invest or have cosmetic surgery when Venus the planet that rules love, money & beauty switches direction.
  • Put off major love & money decisions until Venus turns direct late January.
  • Use this Venus retrograde phase to wait, be patient, consider your love or money options, go into couples therapy, learn more about yourself and what you want when it comes to love & relationships.

Taurus Horoscope December 2021

Taurus, galaxy

Venus Retrograde

Your ruling planet Venus remains in your fellow earth sign Capricorn throughout December. Capricorn is your travel and study sector, the bigger picture of life. This might be about faith or religion, philosophy or foreign connections – any area of your life that expands your horizons.

This month, Venus changes direction and turns retrograde on the 19th. She remains on go slow until January 29, 2022. This could feel frustrating for you and events mid-month could feel as if the brakes have slammed on. Travel or study plans could change on or around the 19th.

Plus, there’s intensity in the mix as Venus switches direction conjunct Pluto. There are two key Venus-Pluto conjunctions this month on the 11th & 25th. At its best, this process can be transformational. Yet, there’s a hidden theme. Some plans could come crashing down. You may experience a crisis of faith or lose heart in your spiritual path. Aim to go deeper but without losing yourself.

Venus isn’t the only planet in Capricorn. Talk planet Mercury is here from the 13th and the Sun enters Capricorn on the 21st, the day of the Solstice. Keep the lines of communication open, keep working at new possibilities rather than give in to impossibility.

What takes place this month could coincide with a shift in direction. You may be ready to make a big decision about where you’re heading and what you want in 2022. This may begin with one dream or plan coming to an end. It’s a pivotal month but take your time and know that your situation and your wants and needs may change by the end of January 2022. Explore your options fully, do your research, dive in deep.

A conversation on or around the 29th could be pivotal and help bring a fresh perspective to a changing situation.

If this is about love, Venus’ domain, prioritise love and relationships in the first two weeks of December. This is because your partner planet Mars is strong and passionate in Scorpio until the 13th. Then, reorient your compass and know that Venus retrograde may shift your relationship dynamic.

Solar Eclipse

Money is under the cosmic spotlight this month too, especially joint finances and shared resources. The Sun is in Sagittarius and this sector of your horoscope until the 21st and talk planet Mercury is here until the 13th. It’s a good time to negotiate well and consider your future investments or goals.

The New Moon Solar Eclipse falls in Sagittarius on the 4th. This is the last eclipse in the Gemini/Sagittarius eclipse cycle that began in June 2020 cutting across the financial axis of your horoscope.

Eclipses often coincide with dramatic events, the ups & downs of life. This indicates that your money situation is unlikely to be steady. Yet, there’s also the potential to make the right move and do well. See what opportunities come your way on or around the Solar Eclipse and get ready to take action a few days later.

This eclipse cycle isn’t only about money, although this is a key feature. It’s about where your values lie, your sense of self-worth, your hidden desires or motivations. Notice the emotional pull around money and what you’re willing to give up and to receive.

The Full Moon on the 19th also cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis. This could bring matters to completion. At its best, the powerful ending of this eclipse cycle could make a difference to your life financially or emotionally.

Stand-out dates for work and money are the 11th & 20th when big planet Jupiter is in action boosting your career & vocation sector. Plus, you have action planet Mars in Sagittarius from the 13th to January 24, 2022 encouraging you to be ambitious around money.

Jupiter Enters Pisces

There is another important planetary shift this month that involves Jupiter. On the 29th, Jupiter finally leaves Aquarius, the star sign at the peak of your horoscope. Aquarius represents your career and vocation, your status and reputation.

At its best, Jupiter brings new opportunities and success. You may have found a way to break free from the daily grind and follow your true vocation. You might be having a sabbatical from work to study or rethink your next steps as Jupiter is the planet of liberation and freedom.

This could link in to the Saturn-Uranus clash on the 24th. Saturn in Aquarius squares revolutionary Uranus in your star sign Taurus.

Both Aquarius and Taurus are fixed signs and can be stubborn. Yet, Uranus is urging you to break with tradition, do things differently and shake things up. You may already know what this means for you personally.

Jupiter has already been in Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021. The timing might be significant for you regarding your next steps. Jupiter will remain in Pisces from December 29 to May 10, 2022.

Jupiter’s move into Pisces feels social as Pisces represents friends, groups, social concerns and your wider network in your horoscope. This is about finding people of like minds and making sure that your social life is not only fun but supportive as well. Bring new friends into your life by embracing new activities and make an effort to catch up with old friends.

Jupiter’s move through Pisces may be about taking what you do out into the wider world and getting people on board who can help you. This could involve gathering people around you, people who can work alongside you and people who make life not only easier but more enjoyable and fun too.

It feels like a significant month coming your way. Ride the waves of change as best you can and make some bold decisions that you can put in place once your planet Venus is back up to speed late January 2022.

Venus Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

  • Venus is retrograde from December 19, 2021 to January 29, 2022
  • Traditionally, it’s not the best time to marry, invest or have cosmetic surgery when Venus the planet that rules love, money & beauty switches direction.
  • Put off major love & money decisions until Venus turns direct late January.
  • Use this Venus retrograde phase to wait, be patient, consider your love or money options, go into couples therapy, learn more about yourself and what you want when it comes to love & relationships.

Aries Horoscope December 2021

Aries, galaxy

Mars’ Power

Your ruling planet Mars is in Scorpio and your joint finance sector up until the 13th. This is an ideal time to get to grips with money matters and sort out your finances in preparation for 2022.

Mars teams up with Pluto in a helpful alignment on the 6th. This is a good date to focus your will and power when it comes to work and money. Set things in place sooner rather than later as Venus’ retrograde phase could coincide with a shift in finances or power – see below.

On the 13th, Mars enters Sagittarius and your travel and study sector. You may be making new plans on the back of travel or study changes that kick in on or around the Solar Eclipse on the 4th. Mars remains in Sagittarius until January 24, 2022. You might be abroad during this phase or be lining up new experiences for the year ahead.

An ideal date to firm up future travel or study plans is the 30th when Mars aligns with Saturn, the planet of commitment.

Solar Eclipse

The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius on the 4th completes a powerful eclipse cycle cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac. Solar Eclipses are New Moons with turbo power. They often represent key turning points in your life when one door closes and you have to re-orient your compass.

The star sign Sagittarius represents higher education, also life experience in your horoscope. It’s about travel, foreign connections, your philosophy on life, your beliefs and religion.

Ideally, this is a time to expand your horizons and life to the full. If travel plans are curtailed, find other ways to stimulate your mind and seek inspiration. Study, learning and gaining knowledge are the areas to embrace whole-heartedly. Or, a spiritual path or a new philosophy or faith.

There’s a Full Moon on the 19th cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of the zodiac – think freedom, movement, travel & study. A potentially lucky date is the 20th when the Sun in Sagittarius links up with big planet Jupiter in Aquarius. Your friends or a group you’re involved in could be the reason why you’re ready to break free from restriction and broaden your experience of life. A conversation on the 11th could get things moving.

Venus Retrograde

The planet of relating Venus is in Capricorn and your career & vocation sector all month. Use your friends in high places and notice who holds the power. On the 19th, Venus turns retrograde, i.e. switches direction in the zodiac.

This is a powerful Venus retrograde phase as Venus switches direction conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. These two planets meet twice this month on the 11th & the 25th. This could signify a shift in power, someone leaving a position of leadership, someone else stepping in. Be wary of underhand behaviour, secrets, people behaving badly.

This could mean a door closing for you or your partner, as Venus is your partner planet. Perhaps, you need to let go of something that’s not working out.

If you do experience a work crisis or have to change direction, try to remain philosophical about the situation. Rather than despair, consider the other possibilities in front of you. Take your time and know that Venus’ retrograde phase lasts until January 29, 2022.

Talk planet Mercury enters Capricorn on the 13th followed by the Sun on the 21st, the day of the Solstice. Therefore, the cosmic spotlight is turning towards your future path, your status & reputation as the year comes to an end.

Perhaps, you’ve always had a dream about what you want to do in life but you’ve not had the time to commit to those plans. Or, maybe you’ve been putting something off because you felt scared and doubted yourself.

Whatever your personal situation, be honest with yourself and visualise what your life would be like if you let yourself fully embrace your dreams. This could be the chance to do something special. See this as the gestation period. At the very least, play around with your ideas and allow yourself to visualise a new future path opening up in 2022 and beyond.

Jupiter Returns to Pisces

More big news this month is planet Jupiter on the move leaving air sign Aquarius and re-entering water sign Pisces on the 29th. Jupiter remains here until May 10, 2022. Jupiter has already been in Pisces from May 13 to July 28, 2021.

At its best, Jupiter creates luck and opportunity and Jupiter’s move into Pisces turns your attention to the most hidden sector of your horoscope. It’s a quiet place, one that can be deeply spiritual.

This is your opportunity to focus on your inner world, develop your spirituality, your trust and faith in life and the universe. You may see more clearly the connection between mind, body and spirit. You may benefit from going on retreat or bringing more silence and solitude into your life as one year ends and another year begins.

It’s lining up to be a big month and you’re wise to look to your future path, to make time to reorient your compass and decide your next steps.

Venus Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

  • Venus is retrograde from December 19, 2021 to January 29, 2022
  • Traditionally, it’s not the best time to marry, invest or have cosmetic surgery when Venus the planet that rules love, money & beauty switches direction.
  • Put off major love & money decisions until Venus turns direct late January.
  • Use this Venus retrograde phase to wait, be patient, consider your love or money options, go into couples therapy, learn more about yourself and what you want when it comes to love & relationships.

A New Taurus-Scorpio Eclipse Cycle

lunar eclipse

Lunar Eclipse [27 Taurus 14]

November 19, 2021 (08:57 GMT)

This month’s Full Moon is special because it’s a Lunar Eclipse, when the light of the Moon is ‘eclipsed’ in its relationship with the Sun & Earth.

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Sun & Moon are at opposite sides of the zodiac and the karmic nodes or points of destiny are pulled into the major planetary pattern.

A shadow is thrown during an eclipse which is why eclipse symbolism is said to be ‘shadowy’ & hidden. Once the shadow lifts, it brings what’s hidden to light or sheds a new perspective on a current situation.

Traditionally, you’re wise to wait a few days after an eclipse before taking action and it’s not a good date to undertake a major project.

Eclipses are often feared because they bring what’s hidden to light, they represent the unknown. They can coincide with external events in your life, where you have to let go of control. Once you know this, you can be more in flow.

Eclipses are often concurrent with turning points. This is why they are considered game-changers as they move the goalposts of life. Fundamentally, eclipses are neither positive nor negative. It’s how you perceive and respond to what happens in your life and out in the world that’s important.

Sometimes, eclipses act as a catalyst for change but you don’t recognise this until later on. Their effect can last a few months after the exact date of the eclipse, even up until the next set of eclipses, which will occur in April/May 2022. The Lunar Eclipse on May 16, 2022 falls at a similar degree – see below.

A New Eclipse Cycle

This is the first eclipse in a new eclipse cycle which cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. These two star signs are ruled by Venus & Mars respectively, the lovers of the heavens.

Eclipse cycles re-occur approximately every 19 years. The last eclipse cycle here was November 2002 to April 2005, the previous one was May 1984 to April 1986, the one before that was May 1966 to November 1967.

The current eclipse cycle will last from November 2021 until October 2023.

This is important for you if you’re one of the fixed star signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius. Also, if the eclipses impact on key angles or planets in your birth chart – use a 2 degree orb.

This first eclipse falls at 27 Taurus. Here’s the full eclipse cycle:

  • Lunar Eclipse [27 Taurus 14] – November 19 2021 (08:57 GMT)
  • Solar Eclipse [10 Taurus 28] – April 30 2022 (21:28 GMT+1)
  • Lunar Eclipse [25 Scorpio 18] – May 16 2022 (05:15 GMT+1)
  • Solar Eclipse [02 Scorpio 00] – October 25 2022 (11:49 GMT+1)
  • Lunar Eclipse [16 Taurus 01] – November 8 2022 (11:02 GMT)
  • Lunar Eclipse [14 Scorpio 58] – May 5 2023 (18:24 GMT+1)
  • Lunar Eclipse [5 Taurus 09] – October 28 2023 (21:15 GMT+1)

Taurus/Scorpio Axis

The Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac is closely linked to fertility and creation, loss and degeneration. This is the cycle of nature. Taurus rules produce, food, what the earth creates for us, how it nurtures and nourishes us.

In the northern hemisphere, the Sun’s move through Taurus coincides with the month of May one of the richest and most fertile times in nature. In Taurus season, nature’s bounty begins to sprout and comes to life in glorious abundance. May is one of the best months of the year for colourful flowers.

Fast forward six months and the Sun moves into Scorpio. In the northern hemisphere, this coincides with autumn and leaves falling, as nature’s bounty starts to die and tumbles back into the ground, fertilising the earth. Sometimes, this can feel like a time of loss or sadness.

Scorpio is linked to regeneration and waste products, including pooh. It’s the compost of life, liquid gold, as the leaves mulch down to bring sustenance back into the earth, ready for next year’s bounty. The cycles of nature and astrology remind us of the inevitable cycle of life, death and rebirth.

Other Taurus/Scorpio themes are money & power – we can expect a lively time in the economy & on the stock markets over the coming two years with the planet of change Uranus active in Taurus; also sex – Taurus is a fertile star sign & Scorpio rules the sex organs. Issues around infertility & clashes over abortion laws are likely to intensify.

Other Factors

Venus/Uranus

On the day of the Lunar Eclipse, November 19th, there’s a Venus-Uranus trine aspect. This is important to note because Venus is the ruling planet of the Taurus Lunar Eclipse. Venus in Capricorn trine Uranus in Taurus, two of the earth signs. Therefore, the eclipse could spell good news for some people. This is particularly relevant regarding love & money, Venus’ themes.

You can never tell exactly what an eclipse is going to bring. Often during a Lunar Eclipse, there’s a theme of winners & losers. For example, in a love triangle, one person is often chosen over another. Someone wins but someone loses. It can’t spell good news for everyone. You want to try and end up on the winning team.

Mars/Uranus

Uranus has been a key player all month. Uranus was directly opposite the New Moon in Scorpio on October 4th, which felt more like a dramatic eclipse than a regular New Moon. Eclipses and Uranus both bring the unexpected. Surprises are sprung, change beckons.

Also, two days before the Lunar Eclipse, there’s a Mars-Uranus opposition on November 17th cutting across the Scorpio-Taurus axis of the zodiac. Mars-Uranus aspects act as a trigger or catalyst. Put the two together and there’s an out-of-control vibe going on. Strong emotions could erupt and fast. This is not the day to plan something crazy or take impulsive risks. Steer clear of anger & slow down the pace.

Jupiter & Pluto

During the Lunar Eclipse, the main planetary aspects are a square to Jupiter at 24 Aquarius which adds wind to the eclipse’s sails. Jupiter can over-exaggerate, over-inflate, be over-confident and pompous. It’s an adventurous addition to the eclipse energy. Plus, there’s a sextile aspect to Pluto at 24 Capricorn, which could be a steadying influence or a power-grab.

This is lively, infectious astrology that requires careful navigation and measured thought. It’s not a time to leap in feet first. It is a time to be alert and ready for unusual events. Read the signs & synchronicities of life that come your way.

Key Areas To Note

Here’s a guide to the areas of your life where you may experience a theme of endings and new beginnings. Or, you’re being called forth on a path of change & transformation. Read both your Sun sign & Ascendant sign:

  • Taurus & Scorpio: 1st/7th houses – RELATIONSHIPS/IDENTITY – your image & appearance, personal goals, your identity; love & relationships, significant others, agreements & conflicts, contracts & joint ventures
  • Gemini & Sagittarius: 12th/6th houses – WORK/LIFESTYLE – retreat, quiet, solitude, a spiritual path; your health & work, what you sacrifice for others, being of service
  • Cancer & Capricorn: 11th/5th houses – SOCIAL GROUPS/SELF-EXPRESSION – your friends, groups, politics & social issues; your children, creativity, love affairs, what you ‘give birth to’.
  • Leo & Aquarius: 10th/4th houses – FOUNDATIONS/FUTURE PATH – your career & vocation, your status & reputation, where you’re heading in life; your home & family, your past & roots, where you come from.
  • Virgo & Pisces: 3rd/9th houses – LEARNING/BELIEFS – your education, neighbours & siblings, how you communicate; the bigger picture, travel, philosophy, religion, where you find meaning in life.
  • Libra & Aries: 2nd/8th houses – MONEY/SELF-WORTH – money, possessions, where your values lie; your joint finances, sexuality, all things hidden, the unconscious, the metaphysical realm.

New Moon Scorpio: Awakening

New Moon

New Moon [12 Scorpio 40] 

London – November 4 2021 – 21:15 GMT 

New York – November 4 2021 – 17:15 GMT-4

Sydney – November 4 2021 – 08:15 GMT+11

The New Moon takes place this week. This is without a doubt a powerful New Moon as it falls in the passionate water sign Scorpio where the Sun and Moon sit side by side. Scorpio is fixed water accessing emotions and feelings on a deep level.

Scorpio Power

Scorpio evokes themes of regeneration, seeking hidden riches, secrets emerging. This is the area of hidden knowledge. Go in deep, wait in silence, listen, be, experience the void.

When you wipe the slate clean, you can start over. When you let go of toxins, purge, empty out, you make space in your life for new commitment and intensity. This is Scorpio power at it best; the ability to let go of what’s no longer needed so you can channel your energy and purpose with laser focus.

Water signs represent emotion and ultimately they are silent. Practise being quiet during the New Moon to allow a different kind of knowingness to surface.

Scorpio is the star sign linked to darkness when the veil between worlds is at its thinnest. Open your windows and cleanse your home to let out the dark and allow in the light. Honour and release the past and create space to let in fresh energy.

The Uranus Factor

This is no ordinary New Moon as the Sun & Moon are directly opposed by Uranus in Taurus, the planet of change. Uranus is at 12 Taurus, the same degree as the New Moon.

Listen out for synchronicities during this New Moon, be open to surprises & the unexpected. This New Moon could bring a breakthrough and fast with Uranus in the picture. Uranus is often linked to awakenings & innovation.

New beginnings may happen spontaneously. Or, external events may be the reason why you need to start over and begin afresh. You rarely know with Uranus what to expect except that change is imminent. Uranus splits off and cuts away, ready or not.

Uranus has a similar feel to eclipses and November is eclipse month. The Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle is already kicking in and you may feel where change is imminent during this week’s powerful New Moon.

Here are the areas of your life that are being triggered by the Sun-Moon-Uranus combination. Read your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign if you know it:

  • Scorpio – image, self-identity, personal goals  relationships, contracts, enemies

Aquarius November 2021

Aquarius horoscope, chakras

Flying High

On the 1st, there’s a stunning Mercury-Jupiter trine aspect. Talk planet Mercury is in Libra and your travel and study sector and aligns with lucky planet Jupiter in your star sign Aquarius.

This is the third meeting of these two planets are they came together on September 20th & October 4th. You could try again regarding a trip away or an educational course. Do what feels right for you and trust your luck. This combination often coincides with good news.

Career Goals

It’s all going on at the peak of your horoscope this month as planetary activity takes place in Scorpio and your career and vocation sector. Here’s what’s happening:

Planets in Scorpio:

  • Mars (action/drive) – all month
  • Sun (illumination) – until the 22nd
  • Mercury (communication) – 5th to 24th

This is a busy sector of your horoscope throughout November and it starts with the New Moon in Scorpio on the 4th. A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings but this New Moon is especially lively as your co-ruler Uranus opposes the Sun & Moon on the same day.

This could mean that you have to move home because of a new job. Or, perhaps events at home or within your family are the reason why you’re having to start over at work, in your career or in your vocation.

Action planet Mars and communication planet Mercury in Scorpio will ensure that the emphasis on your career and vocation, your future path remains hot. Keep the fires stoked and don’t take your eye off what’s happening.

These two planets come together on the 10th, an ideal date to walk (Mars) your talk (Mercury) or do (Mars) what you say (Mercury). Be bold and courageous, also quick-witted and persuasive. Yet on the same day, your traditional ruler Saturn in your star sign Aquarius squares both planets in Scorpio.

This could mean that you’re up against the authorities or tough competition. Someone might stop you doing what you want and throw a spanner in the works. Or, perhaps you’re the one who’s having to voice your concerns about what’s happening out in the world or in your place of work. Saturn likes to play by the rules.

It’s not straightforward, however, because a few days later, your co-ruler Uranus is back in action. Uranus opposes Mercury on the 13th & Mars on the 17th. Events during this time could propel you forward and fast. Listen out for new information that comes to light and act accordingly.

This ambitious phase may demand flexibility on your part. This could be an unsettled time for you. Don’t be too rigid or stubborn and aim to keep your options open. You may be caught up within the divide of society as rules and regulations impact your life in a detrimental way. Uranus is a rebel and it’s wise not to be too foolhardy or take a huge risk while Uranus is out of control. Try and find the middle-way where possible.

Eclipse Season

Also this month, a new eclipse cycle begins which is significant for you. This is because it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac and the foundations of your horoscope. The first eclipse is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the 19th. This eclipse cycle continues until October 2023.

Eclipses often coincide with significant change. For you, this is about your home and family, also your career and vocation. It’s where you come from and where you’re heading to.

You may be on the move during the eclipse, leaving home or transitioning to a new domestic situation. It may be a turning point for your career or future direction and eclipses often coincide with unexpected events. There could be a clear divide between your home life and your ambition.

On the day of the eclipse, there’s a stunning Venus-Uranus trine aspect and this feels supportive. Venus rules the Taurus eclipse and this could flag up a benefactor or someone from your past who steps in with a new opportunity. Perhaps, you find the right person to help you at home or with your family. You may need to act fast more than once in the month ahead. Keep your eyes firmly fixed on your future goals.

Friends & Acquaintances

If it’s all going on this month with a new business or fast-paced changes at home or at work, you may be more than ready for the Sun’s move into Sagittarius on the 22nd. This is swiftly followed by talk planet Mercury’s move into Sagittarius and your friendship and group sector on the 24th.

This is your cue to socialise and catch up with friends. If work’s intense or you’re unemployed throughout November, you may be more than ready for some fun and to get the support and advice of your best mates.

Reorient your compass towards the end of the month to ensure you have a healthy work/life balance.

Eclipse Do’s & Don’ts

Eclipse season is here and a new Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle is underway. Here are some eclipse tips:

  • Try not to fear an eclipse – they are a reminder that we’re not always in control.
  • Don’t choose an eclipse date to launch a project or start something new.
  • Wait a few days after an eclipse before taking action. Eclipse symbolism is shadowy and hidden.
  • Once the eclipse shadow lifts, then you can try to take advantage of any changes that have occurred.
  • Know that the eclipses are closely linked to the karmic nodes & wheel of destiny – they offer a turning point.
