Relationships & Breaking Free
Your ruling planet Mars is in Taurus and your opposite star sign until the 20th. This turns the spotlight towards your relationships, both personal and professional.
People are important in your life now, whether you’re seeking a role model, you meet an influential teacher or you’re getting on the right side of the people who count.
Alternatively, you could be the one influencing or teaching others. Either way, work your relationships but, at the same time, don’t let other people get away with bad behaviour.
This is because Mars is in feisty mood this month which could make for some tempestuous or argumentative battles. You might be fighting for other people’s rights and defending the underdog or be taking on your own personal battle.
Mars brings passion and excitement your way and a relationship could start unexpectedly and suddenly. Notice what occurs on or around the 1st/2nd when Mars unites with unpredictable Uranus in Taurus.
Uranus often brings the unexpected into your life and this conjunction is made even more powerful because both planets sit next to the karmic North Node in Taurus. This suggests that the wheel of fortune is turning and things could happen quickly.
Someone else could step in and take you by surprise, perhaps an offer you weren’t expecting or a competitor who challenges your business.
Uranus gives but also takes away – it works both ways which is why it’s wise to be flexible and be ready to act fast when Uranus is in action. The planet of change and spontaneity turns retrograde on the 24th.
If you’re in a relationship or married, keep things fresh in your love life. There’s often a theme of freedom when Uranus is active. This may be most significant for you if your birthday falls from November 9th to 11th.
What could help is the fact that love planet Venus is in a good aspect to both Uranus & Mars on the 2nd & 3rd. Venus is in your fellow water sign Cancer and your travel and study sector until the 11th.
Go somewhere new and different with the one you love and ring the changes. Alternatively, you may hear from someone who lives abroad or find yourself thinking of a foreign lover more than usual.
It may be your other half who’s the one who needs to travel or be elsewhere, meaning that the two of you are physically apart during this potentially topsy-turvy, dramatic yet exciting month for love.
Full Moon Aquarius
The big astrology this month peaks during the Full Moon in Aquarius on the 12th. This Full Moon is powerful for you as it cuts across the foundations of your horoscope.
The Sun is in Leo and your career and future sector, while the Moon is in Aquarius and your home and family sector. You may feel pulled between the two during the Full Moon period.
It’s a complex picture too because the Moon is conjunct Saturn in Aquarius and the Mars-Uranus pairing in Taurus square up to the Full Moon.
This is reigniting the Saturn-Uranus square aspect that dominated 2021. This powerful clash – rules versus liberty – is back within orb and a key player in the astrology until the end of the year.
This pits your home & family against your relationships, in some shape or form. It might be that you’re with a partner and your family don’t approve. Alternatively, you’re caught up in an argumentative situation as tensions and tempers flare at home.
The frustrations could come because you can’t see the people you love. Or, you feel cut off from other people.
It’s likely to be a month when you won’t see eye-to-eye with everyone so bear this in mind. You may find that your moves are dependent on other people too, which isn’t always an easy position for you to be in.
This could turn out to be a dramatic and busy month but, potentially, a successful month too. There are a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, the Sun is in Leo and your career and vocation sector until the 23rd. This is your chance to shine, to improve your status or reputation.
Up until the 4th, talk planet Mercury is in Leo and, from the 11th, the planet of relating Venus is in Leo. Therefore, this is an ideal time to show off your skills and talents and work your connections. If you get asked to do a talk or give a presentation, it’s a great time to do so.
Be confident in your abilities and, at the very least, fake it until you make it. It’s a good month to show off and let others know what you have to offer.
The 18th is particularly lucky when the two best planets Venus and Jupiter come together in Leo and Aries, the two work sectors of your horoscope. Notice who comes into your life on or around this date and what opportunities come your way.
This could be one of the reasons why your personal relationships are more turbulent if your career is going swimmingly and it’s here where you may need to channel your time and energy.
One way or another, you may need to make a choice between these key areas of your life. Ideally, opt for the route to success but know that family or your past will be a strong emotional pull, especially around the middle of the month.
Your ruling planet Mars enters Gemini on the 20th, the sign of communication. Gemini rules an intriguing part of your horoscope that’s closely linked to your star sign Scorpio. This is about the areas that are difficult to reach, inner communication, reading between the lines, looking below the surface of life.
Mars here can feel intense and full on. However, you’re not usually someone who shies away from the transformational side of life. Delve deep into your psyche this month and talk about what you’re experiencing. Mars in Gemini is the perfect talking cure.
Dare to go wherever other people fear to tread – make this your personal motto. If you work as a therapist or you have psychic abilities, your intuition and instincts will be particularly acute.
Gemini is one of the financial sectors of your horoscope so it’s important to use your nous to boost your money know-how. You may be considering working in a financial environment or start trading.
This could be a good time to do so as Mars remains in Gemini for the next seven months until March 2023. Your star sign Scorpio is linked to money and power being part of the Taurus-Scorpio axis.
This is an unusually long time for Mars to be in one star sign and this is because Mars turns retrograde in the last two months of 2022.
Therefore, know that what you begin this month will take time. Ensure you’re playing the long game when it comes to money, savings & investments. And, get ready to take your foot off the pedal once Mars is in retreat from the end of October onwards.
Chill Out, Calm Down
Finally, it’s important to make time to chill out and calm down this month with so much big astrology taking place. Talk planet Mercury is in earth sign Virgo from the 4th to the 26th and the Sun moves into Virgo on the 23rd. Hang out with friends and be with people who have a calming influence upon you.
The New Moon takes place in Virgo on the 27th, an ideal time to employ someone new or organise a social get-together. You might be delegating or get more support on your side to deal with any personal challenges or a busy work load.
