Until Friday morning, Venus will remain alongside Spica, forming an auspicious pairing that promises the continuation of cosmic sweetness this week. After the rough trot Venus as been through, I can honestly say, we deserve this!
Yesterday I was deep in writing your horoscope for November that will be posted on my website next week. It reminded me of just how excited I am for the astrology of November, it’s a month I’ve personally been waiting for all year.
I want to briefly touch base to let you know what there is to look forward to!
You may begin to question what stability means to you and if it’s enough to keep you from pursuing change in your life. Big questions about values have already been pondered through the Venus’ current retrograde in Scorpio cycle. As this Full Moon is ruled by Venus in reverse, relationship themes may reach a tipping point.
In the sky, Mercury moves through parts of the ecliptic other planets don’t go. Like the thoughts that flicker through the mind. When Mercury and Pluto join forces, you may be forced to confront parts of your mind that you’d rather not go, to admit a feeling, or confess a secret.
The next time the Moon and Mars conjoin in Aquarius on November 16, they won’t get to make an exact conjunction before Mars slips into watery Pisces. There will be other notable changes in the astro weather then, that suggests that last night’s celestial theatre was truly indicative of the changing of the guard.
Venus, the planet of love, beauty and relationship is now retrograde. Just when you thought the madness was over, we've got a deep review of our deepest desires and wants. Overall, Venus signifies the way we relate and connect with each other and the things that value and please us. However, in your own birth chart, she might signify your health and well-being, your career or perhaps your home and family.

Fresh from the Autumn/Spring equinox, this lunation emphasises what my first astrology teacher described as the ‘me vs. we’ dynamic. For anyone who has the polarity of Aries/Libra as a feature of their chart, or has the Sun, Moon or ascendant in those signs, finding the balance between the needs of relationship (Libra) and the needs of the individual (Aries) can often be a constant battle.
Neptune calls for surrender. Like the oceanic tides that wash in and wash out, moving with the rhythms of your heart is called for now. You may need some space and stillness to let your feelings rise to the surface, like an incoming tide.
This weekend, tenderness and care is promised. Give more than is expected and watch the flowers of love, abundance and support bloom. Consider a relationship that you value and ask yourself where you can help heighten the tide, so all can rise.
