The Planets This Week: November 12, 2018

The astrological headlines of the week are warrior Mars moving into gentle Pisces while love planet Venus turns direct and communication planet Mercury turns retrograde.

Mars, planet of action moves into Pisces where it will stay until December 31. Under this influence you could be more sensitive than you realize, and you’ll probably notice that your physical energy has higher peaks and lower valleys than usual. Napping will be a very good thing for you to do when you’re tired; you may need more sleep than you normally do too.

Also, this week, love planet Venus finally turns direct after being retrograde since October 5th. Under the influence of Venus in Libra and depending on how it affects your personal birth chart, your social life could be in full swing. Gracious manners come naturally to you now, and your charms are irresistible. You easily attract friends and lovers and may find yourself to be quite popular, with your social calendar booked solid.

If you’re single, you may long to be in partnership, and might even compromise your ideals, preferring to be coupled up than to be alone. You’re also more likely to see the good in everyone, so you’re less critical of potential mates. If you’re in a relationship, this can be a sweet time for rekindling the romance and bringing out the best in each other.

We also have the dreaded communication planet Mercury turning retrograde until December 6th. The retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius can trigger an onslaught of opinions that would be better left unspoken. The tendency, under this planetary influence, is what is known as ‘inserting one’s foot into one’s mouth.’

The Planets This Week: November 5, 2018

The astrological headlines of this time are communication Mercury in Sagittarius, love planets Venus retrograde back into Libra, unpredictable Uranus retrograde back into Aries, a New Moon in Scorpio and expansive Jupiter moving into Sagittarius!

With Mercury in Sagittarius many of us may find ourselves wanting to broaden our worldview and explore a variety of subjects. We may ask life’s big questions, wondering, what does it all mean? Mercury will turn retrograde on November 16th and continue its retrograde movement into Scorpio on December 1st. The retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius can trigger an onslaught of opinions that would be better left unspoken.

We also have love planet Venus in one of its favorite signs – Libra. Under this influence, our social life could be in full swing. Many of us will easily attract friends and lovers with our social calendar booked solid, regardless of the retrograde.

With unpredictable Uranus moving back into Aries our more outrageous inclinations may be less evident, though occasionally, for someone who’s normally rather repressed, this period will provide the opportunity to throw off the shackles of inhibition and allow a freer self to emerge.

Also, this week, we have a New Moon in Scorpio which helps us to break bad habits and transform outmoded behaviors. It’s a time for new beginnings and for getting to the heart of a matter.

Finally, the news of the week and the month is expansive Jupiter moving into its favorite sign of Sagittarius where it will be until December 2019. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, luck, and optimism, and Sagittarius is the sign of travel, higher learning, adventure, and philanthropy. Jupiter in Sagittarius offers a welcomed wave of positive energy and optimism.

The Planets This Month: November 2018

The first week of November has a healing theme: two beautiful trines, firstly between Jupiter and Chiron and then between the Sun and Neptune both encourage compassion, sincerity and trust. A New Moon in Scorpio on November 7th continues this theme, allowing emotions to be aired and positively channeled. However, when Uranus retrogrades back into warrior-like Aries on November 6th, attitudes may become regressive and dogmatic, so we will need to guard against overly entrenched opinions.

Jupiter arrives in Sagittarius for the first time in 11 years on November 8th, bringing a huge upsurge in positivity, generosity and optimism. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, luck, and optimism, and Sagittarius is the sign of travel, higher learning, adventure, and philanthropy. Considering the heaviness of many of 2018’s transits, Jupiter in Sagittarius offers a welcomed wave of positive energy and optimism.

Another bold sign change on November 15th also signals positive change: when Mars moves into Pisces, many of us can channel our energies towards the common good with much greater success than before. Making amends for the past is an important part of healing the future, and when Mercury turns retrograde on November 16th, we have a chance to do just that.

A difficult Mars-Jupiter square on November 19th warns us not to over-promise on what we cannot truly deliver. Any negativity from such actions is swiftly swept away, however, when the Sun breezes into Sagittarius on November 22nd. That same day, a Gemini Full Moon brings humor and a playful vibe, and this light-heartedness continues until November 25th when the Sun conjuncts Jupiter – this is traditionally thought to be one of the luckiest days of the year.

The Planets This Week: October 22, 2018

This week, the Sun moves into Scorpio where it will stay until November 22nd. This show is dedicated to Scorpio! During the Sun’s stay in Scorpio, you may get in touch with deeper and darker aspects of yourself. You’re not interested in the superficial; instead you want to dive into the depths and uncover what’s hidden beneath the surface.

You might seem mysterious to others and may reveal yourself only to those who have proven that they can be trusted. Your feelings are intense; you might be afraid you’ll scare people away if they see how passionate and extreme you can be.

In reality, you’re probably scared of being vulnerable. But if you hide emotions, you’ll miss out on the intimacy you’re longing for. If you risk revealing yourself, you can deepen and strengthen bonds with a significant other.

Your desire to explore the depths and use your intuitive powers to uncover hidden motivations could lead you to study psychology or astrology. Investigation and research can also be rewarding. You have focus and willpower to complete any project, which means digging until you get to the root of the issue. You’re relentless in your pursuit of truth.

Under the influence of the Scorpio Sun, you have the potential to heal from old wounds and transform a stagnant situation. The key is being willing to let go of the past, release what you’ve outgrown, and forgive yourself and others.

Also, this week, we have a Full Moon in Taurus so you may see some monetary rewards for financial maneuvers you made earlier. Having pledged to stick by your instincts, this could be a period of fulfillment, where you see the benefits of monetary strategies.

The Planets This Week: October 8, 2018

This week, the focus is in relationships. We have a New Moon in Libra, love planet Venus and passion planet Mars battle it out in the heavens along with the Sun and powerful Pluto. Communication planet Mercury shifts into Scorpio so conversations will be intense.

The Libra New Moon shifts our attention to relationship issues with business associates, our sweetheart and friends. Cooperation is vital to a harmonious life. We should Consider the bonds that we have with others. Compromise is at the heart of peaceful coexistence. Respect, love and trust are generally earned, so ponder how to develop these qualities within relationships. Address balance issues if you’re involved in an unequal association.

Also, this week, love planet Venus forms a challenging square to passionate Mars. Desire-driven physical urges can be very strong, almost irresistible. We tend to do what we want and not think about the consequences until later. If libido is getting the best of us, a passionate rendezvous will help.

With the Sun forming a challenging square to Pluto power struggles are practically unavoidable this week. It could be quite an emotional time as a result. It’s all about power plays that will seem to come out of nowhere, and they could blow up really fast.

Communication planet Mercury moves into Scorpio. We may seek deeper meaning and core truths. We’ll dig beneath the surface to get to the bottom line, mentally clearing away meaningless data and uncovering the essence of what’s really important. Intellectual intensity can turn into obsession – once our mind latches on to an idea or train of thought, we won’t want to let go until we’ve taken it to its logical conclusion.

The Planets This Month: October 2018

October this year is a time for reflection and repair for most signs. Powerful energies bring forceful opinions and actions to the fore, prompting each of us to figure out how to protect ourselves from such aggression.

Interpersonal relationships are in the spotlight, especially once Venus turns retrograde in Scorpio on October 5th. This is a chance to rekindle old relationships, if desired, or to finally address, confront and heal the issues remaining from previous toxic encounters.

Here’s what each sign can expect this month: Aries relationships and intimacy are your key focus this October. Taurus: there are indications that this month you’re not harnessing your ideas in as practical a manner as normal. Gemini: your confidence levels are high this October, which is good to see. Cancer: adopting a can-do approach will see you safely through October’s variable influences. Leo: success this October is all about getting your message across: being clear in what you want to say and saying it well. Virgo: managing your resources properly – both time and money – is essential as October gets underway. Libra: this month is all about recognising your inherent talents and abilities – and making the most of them! Scorpio: the difficult Mercury-Pluto square on October 2nd prompts some soul searching over how you work with your soul group. Sagittarius: being expected or required to fit in causes you some angst this October, as you would much prefer to go your own way and do your own thing. Capricorn: get set for a hard-working October which should see lots of progress being made towards your professional and personal goals. Aquarius: October looks set to be a very educational month for you, Aquarius. Pisces: October brings mixed fortunes for your sign, Pisces.

Hello Libra!

Hello Libra!

Join host and astrologer, Kelli Fox, to find out all about Libra. Libra is symbolized by the Scales, which are all about balance — Libra’s lifelong pursuit. This sign is happiest when everything around it is in equilibrium; when everyone is happy and getting along, and there are no major injustices making life seem less sweet.

The Sun moving into Libra coincides with the fall equinox in the northern hemisphere and the spring equinox in the southern hemisphere. The Autumn Equinox occurs around September 21 each year, when the Sun enters the Cardinal sign of Libra and the autumn season officially begins in the Northern Hemisphere.

During the Autumn Equinox, the Sun rises due east and sets due west, no matter where on the planet you are. Days and nights are just about equal. Autumn marks the lengthening nights and darkening skies. Trees change colors as the leaves fall to the ground. The energy in the air has shifted from the extroverted, free-spirited nature of summer fun to a quieter, more reflexive foreshadowing of winter.

This week, we also have a Full Moon which means you may see some of your efforts beginning to pay off. You could receive recognition for your spirited, enthusiastic preliminary work on recent endeavors. Your leadership qualities may also be commended for rousing the troops in an effort. However, in your desire to be the head of the pack, you may run into resistance from others who believe in group consensus. You might need to be more of a team player.

The Planets This Week: September 10, 2018

What do the planets have in store for this week? We have a New Moon in Virgo, love planet Venus moving into Scorpio and action planet Mars in Aquarius.

On Sunday the 9th, the Virgo New Moon turns us toward more serious matters after a period of playful indulgences has passed. Many of us may be mulling over the nuts and bolts of our daily life. Work may be a concern or perhaps a health matter, or even how to run our lives more efficiently. During this time, we should evaluate the areas that need improvement. Making to-do lists and clearing clutter is the best use of this influence.

Love planet Venus moves into Scorpio where it will be until October 31st. This is an extra long Venus cycle as it will be turning retrograde on October 5th. While Venus is in Scorpio many of us may find ourselves longing for deep intimacy and intense passion. We won’t have much patience for superficial connections or casual dating, preferring to relate to a few close friends and one significant other. When we get involved, we will want to give all of ourselves and reveal the very core of our being.

If you’re in a partnership, this could be an excellent time to deepen your bond and strengthen your sense of trust. But you may need to work through some of the shadow sides of Scorpio to get there — jealousy, abandonment and betrayal.

Mars will be moving into Aquarius so we may find ourselves asserting our independence and individuality. We will long to break free from other people’s expectations of us and want to experiment with expressing more of our authentic self, taking the risk of letting your eccentricities show.

The Planets This Month: September 2018

September begins with an air of thoughtfulness and hard work. Mercury moves into Virgo on September 5th so rational thinking is favored over subjective feelings. A day later, Saturn turns direct in determined Capricorn, so it’s very much back to business. After an industrious week, some of us may be prone to some negative escapism when the Sun opposes Neptune on September 7th, but we’re making progress and that’s what counts.

The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th, turns us toward more serious matters after a period of playful indulgences has passed. Many of us may be mulling over the nuts and bolts of our daily life. Work may be a concern or perhaps a health matter, or even how to our lives more efficiently. Also, on this day, Venus moves into jealous, manipulative and sometimes vengeful Scorpio. The following day, warrior mars moves into Aquarius to complete a very long cycle that started in May.

With Mercury opposing Neptune on September 13th, there’s a lot of confusion in the air and it’s difficult to be sure of people’s motives. Mars squares up to Uranus for the last time this year on September 18th, so tempers may flare once more, especially over love.

Fortunately, the last ten days of the month have a much more positive vibe. Mercury moves into Libra on September 21st bringing us a light-hearted and laid-back approach to life. The Sun follows suit the next day, heralding the Fall Equinox, a time of balance and harmony. An Aries Full Moon on September 24th is indicative of fresh optimism, enthusiasm and a sense of fun. It is square to Saturn, however – a gentle reminder that while we’re enjoying life, we do still have responsibilities.

The Planets This Week: August 27, 2018

The astro weather of the week is action planet Mars finally turns direct after more than six weeks of being retrograde. Under this influence, we’ll want tangible, measurable results — concrete evidence of our efforts. We’ll be a paragon of pragmatism now and aren’t likely to make a move unless you’ve thought through all the possible outcomes. We might have a tendency to being too cautious or even fearful, missing out on a golden opportunity. We need to trust our instincts to guide us toward cautious risks.

Mars turned retrograde in Aquarius on June 26th and continued its backward movement in Capricorn until August 27th. This retrograde period could have indicated anger and temper issues, and these feelings may have been turned inward instead of being openly expressed. This could have led to all sorts of unfortunate effects, including temporary depression. Initiative may be thwarted during this time but the good news is that plans and progress can start to move full steam ahead!

Also, this week, there’s a Full Moon in Pisces. During this time, we may be feeling more compassionate about the way we’ve touched other people’s hearts. Romance is especially highlighted with this bright moon, so make sure to indulge in plenty of candlelight and kisses. Great joy can come from spending time with those you love. As the moon begins to wane, many of us might want to spend time alone in meditation, getting in touch with ourselves on a deeper level than we usually make time for. We may have some marvelous psychic visions that can guide us in the future. It’s a great time to replenish our spirit for the next cycle ahead.
