Sitara asserts, “In the event of one of many recent cover-up stories, the Neptunian smoke machine quickly begins its work and throws countless aspects into the discussion, which subsequently becomes the focus – and under which the actual ethical principle moves out of sight.”

Mood of the Moment
Balance is this month’s motto. We have an equitable mixture of cosmic forces and despite the diversity of energies there are barely any serious friction points. Therefore, conflicts can be brought to reconciliation relatively swiftly.
Against this background, one can then deal with luxury issues, such as how fundamental ethical principles are dealt with in society. Sagittarius, in particular Saturn in Sagittarius, would reduce them to the essential core points and insist on their implementation. For example, an ethical principle is “telling the truth”. Now, like Sagittarius, it is possible to take the view that “telling the truth” is a minimal consensus which makes a meaningful human coexistence possible in the first place and which must therefore be maintained without fail.
Instead, in the event of one of many recent cover-up stories, the Neptunian smoke machine quickly begins its work and throws countless aspects into the discussion, which subsequently becomes the focus – and under which the actual ethical principle moves out of sight. Suddenly it’s no longer a matter of whether someone was lying or told the truth, but of what caused him to lie, whoever else has lied, when the lies began, who could claim damages because of the lies, etc., etc. And in all of this the blatant word “lie” is skilfully circumvented.
From now on, with Jupiter in perceptive Scorpio, we have the opportunity for such nebulae to be uncovered and thereby rendered invalid.
Aries: It continues to be primarily about relationships. Find a new relation to the topic of independence. Most people want to be independent. Nevertheless, few people like it when others want to be independent of them. Realise that your own freedom is only guaranteed if you allow others their freedom. You may use your freedom for something different than others do, but that must be left to everyone’s own devices. In the second half of the month your mental clarity and detachment grows.
Taurus: In the first week, restlessness alternates with phases during which you are completely centred within yourself. For two weeks afterwards, the focus is on expansion. More space, more depth – both will delight you deeply. But sometimes it is also confusing when a whole host of new aspects suddenly emerge! Open up, don’t fend off anything, everything has space in the vastness of your heart. In the last week you will reach a wise agreement with the realities of life; you will feel supported and lifted.
Gemini: A month with high potential, especially in terms of your search for meaning. Mercury prompts you to a clear direction. Make a priority list of everything you are interested in. Ask yourself: What do I want most? And with this in mind, about whether you’re expecting more meaning and fulfilment from it. Then reduce the list to the first seven points and after that to the first three. Decide to remain steadfastly focused for the coming weeks. This is the best way to simplify your life.
Cancer: The prevailing energies carry you through November. Trust life. It will not pamper you, but support you in what you are: your nature is appreciated. And if you want to go beyond it, you will anyway always find support. In the first half of the month, don’t rush through your daily routine, but take the time to deal with it all. In the second half you will find it easy to deal wisely and relaxed even with difficult situations and give support to other people.
Leo: You are now passing through a rather strange world: soft, flowing, profound and soulful – and you are getting along quite comfortably. Look closely at everything, because even if it is not your home, it has its reason for being. Nevertheless, you will be glad when the Sun moves into Sagittarius on the 22nd and more fire energy will be available again, with which you move through life. This awakens your thirst for adventure and the joy of discovering new horizons – material, mentally, spiritual.
Virgo: On the emotional level you can relax, because your sensitivity is met with understanding. Mentally however, there may be friction because the Sagittarius energy shakes up your habits. When you hold on fast to rigid ideas just because they are familiar to you and promise security, they are now being challenged or rejected. Don’t fight, but listen to the arguments. You’re smart enough to know if they’re justified and you therefore can get involved with them.
Libra: Pluto is also active during November. This promises courage, profundity and the willingness to commit yourself vigorously. It also promises passion – in your love relationships or for a cause. The word passion [from the Latin root pati-] means “suffering” and is therefore rather negative, especially for the Libran. In this case however, it stands for a mixture of enthusiasm, dedication and intimacy. Find valuable goals for which you want to mobilize this blend. But above all, let it enrich your relationships.
Scorpio: This is your time! This November, doors will open for you in a wide variety of areas. Especially in your relationships, new possibilities for fulfilling encounters are opening up for you. They best come into their own when you are unconditionally honest with yourself and thus develop a greater understanding of other people’s weaknesses. Enjoy imperfection, even in yourself. In the second half of the month, you’ll be inclined to think in black and white. Relax and allow the overtones.
Sagittarius: Over the course of this year, a wonderful harmony has been able to develop – a process that is now coming to an end. Old and new can be in harmony with each other, the past stimulates the future, the future finds its meaning through the past. With Mercury in Sagittarius, you are now also challenged to use your intellectual and communication skills for what makes your life wider and larger. And question what doesn’t work.
Capricorn: Since the beginning of 2017 there has been a development towards more and more openness and experimentation, which has probably made your life a lot more colourful and varied. From now on, take care to keep the joy of the new, so that your straightforwardness can remain light and flexible. What’s most likely to rob you of peace and quiet is the habit of fighting. Don’t put yourself under pressure to always take immediate action, but find alternative ways to master situations successfully.
Aquarius: So far, this year has brought you a diversity you have come to appreciate, and with this variety a constant tranquillity, also appreciated by you. In November, this development comes to a crowning completion. At the same time, other possibilities open up to you, especially in the spiritual realm: worlds of ideas and lines of thought that fascinate you and are worth to be explored and researched. Inspiring encounters and horizon-expanding conversations go hand in hand with this.
Pisces: In November, resources are available to you that make it easy for you to rest in your centre while remaining open at the same time. On the other hand, in the second half of the month, affectionate relationships and friendly encounters light up under a good star. Your learning field is now communication. You are asked to be more direct and unambiguous. Also, the logic of your conclusions should be sound: on the one hand to convince others, on the other, to be sure of yourself.
