Mood of the Moment
This November it is about our attitude towards what we do and how we do it, and the first and second half of the month differ significantly. During the first half we find it hard to define clear goals to aim at or even realize. Compromise is required together with a view of the larger context in which our actions take place. If we find ourselves embedded in this larger context, we don’t identify with our actions – being more like an instrument for the action to happen. With such a stance the tension dissolves, because the idea of having to fight is eliminated.
In the second half it will be easier to act as we are more in tune with our desires. Desires motivate us to become active; they are the ignition spark but often that’s all they are needed for. After having set us in motion we can let go of them, trusting in the momentum they develop. If we cling onto them for too long, we become inflexible and dogged. This, however, isn’t the danger now, for even if our objectives are sometimes unclear, we can be sure that even a hazy idea will lead us in the right direction.
Aries: Even if many of your means and goals are being again and again obscured by fogginess – persevere! Your inner compass will show you the way that corresponds to your true needs. Every now and again take a moment to assess your position and what you want; pay attention to details. Right now the answers arising from within often demand unusual, if not pioneering steps. Take care not to hurt anybody, but don’t judge by the standards of other people.
Taurus: In the first half of November, honest communication is important which isn’t confined to practical issues but also includes meaningful questions. What matters in the second half is to think “big”, particularly in your relationships. Break out of the framework of your own thinking, feelings and acting. Experiment with stepping out of rehearsed and fixed role playing. Also talk things over with people who could question your idea about yourself. Search for a new starting point.
Gemini: Now it’s about broadening your horizons. Find people with whom you can set out for new pastures – outwardly or inwardly. Talking about problems leads nowhere, but looking for new solutions together is inspiring and promises success. Avoid greed – it’s a trap you might fall into. Enjoy whatever is possible instead of getting heated up over obstacles; they only rob you unnecessarily of energy. End of the month the time is ripe for starting a clarification process that might last until the end of the year.
Cancer: In the first third of the month it is about providing more depth and space in your life. At Full Moon a phase of stabilization sets in. You can become active while remaining firmly standing on factual grounds, without the feeling of having to knock down walls. This may change with the New Moon that awakens the love for adventure in you and invites you to leave your cozy nest again. Have a good look at the situation and find ways for changes to happen that hurt neither yourself nor others.
Leo: Even if it hurts at first: Leave your romantic dreams behind. Even if they appear to be fulfilling themselves – disappointment is preprogrammed. As soon as you are ready to let go of your hopes for a blissful future, new doors open instantly. They lead directly into the Now, where you realize that you lack nothing. In order to stay in this forceful energy, admit to yourself what you really want – without claiming that anybody should do it for you. The key is saying Yes to yourself.
Virgo: As you know anyway, much in life is not perfect, least of all when it comes to relationships. But from the very acceptance of this fact you can draw the strength that prepares you to be ready for the big questions of life: What is it really about? Who am I, actually? It’s worth striving for the answers as they reconcile you with yourself and the world. True, things may not become more perfect this way but what does it matter if you are inwardly free of them?
Libra: You are being inspired by Uranus and Jupiter to target new paths, even if you can put your ideas only gradually into practice. But since Saturn has been in your sign for over a year now, you probably have become accustomed to its procrastinating introverted energy. In the second half of the month, approach things pragmatically; simplify everything and enjoy everday life. Changes are already in the air – be open to them and look for creative ways of making them happen.
Scorpio: The most interesting influences in November will happen for you during the second half of the month. On the one hand Neptune enables you to open up for something bigger, but it often takes away your orientation. Surrender to the greater unknown; even though you won’t get it under control, it will open up horizons which you have only dreamed about. Put the high energy that the Mars-Pluto trine makes available to you now to some use. Even if you haven’t got a clear vision of the future just yet, find positive goals that motivate you.
Sagittarius: There are limits to everything, but you can figure out where they are. Get together with others, share with them and find new ideas how to widen your perspective. But remain aware of natural limitations. Nothing is forever and everything is subject to some kind of restriction. Only one thing points beyond it – the good news: You’ve got it already. The bad news: You don’t know and will have to discover it. Jupiter’s message: Don’t settle for less.
Capricorn: You continue to have good stars, a powerful and clear direction in November with Venus added at the end of the month, opening your heart and making you susceptible for the finer things in life. At work you can now also tackle larger projects or bring them to a satisfactory conclusion. Privately make efforts for lasting improvements, which – even if they are simple – will prove themselves in everyday life, instead of finding solutions that are impressive but short-lived.
Aquarius: During the first half of the month your main focus should be on communication and not yet on concrete steps. In the course of November your trust in your intuition grows, as well as your wish for more space. Share with others and gather information. Don’t let yourself be bamboozled by pseudo-spiritual ideas wanting to impose conventional standards of ”right and wrong” onto you. Rather, give space to your inner silence so that which is an expression of your own freedom can show more clearly.
Pisces: In November, above all you need retreat, meditation and reflection on the core issues of life. Turn your attention inside rather than on the people and things around you and their reactions to what you are doing. You tend to want to please everybody and therefore put yourself into difficult, painful and chaotic situations. Don’t look for practical solutions, but for answers pointing beyond the daily ups and downs, even if they are not yet applicable.
