Your weekly horoscopes are here — get ready for some major romantic power shifts
Are you ready for it?
What lessons can we take from this week? The New Moon in Scorpion will have us all cleansing our spaces and recalculating what it is we really want for ourselves and for our relationships. Be kind to to others, because they are also going through an emotional cleansing process, but do not back down.
Astrological happenings to take note of this week:
✨ Uranus in retrograde enters Aries on November 6th
✨ A new moon in Scorpio on November 7th
✨ Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8th
Your instinctual compass tends to have you rushing through life, but do you ever stop to just like, chill? Take it from me — you’ve got a lot of big things coming up this month (no surprise since you’re always working hard). Now is a good time to bask in the beautiful act of doing nothing. Take a couple days this week to relax and do things that make you feel good, entirely guilt-free. Otherwise you are going to burn yourself out
Do you feel as though you’re getting your footing a bit more stabilized in this crazy thing we call life? No? Well you have. It’s taken a lot of hard work, but it’s all starting to feel worth it. Take some time to look back on how far you’ve come in the past year. You’ve been through a lot of shit, and yet, here you are. While we’re all still wondering how you did it, this would be a good time for you to reflect on all the hard work you've been putting in. Give yourself a little credit.
Your typical go-with-the-flow attitude normally keeps everyone fooled, but I know there’s a control freak hiding underneath all of that free-spirited bs. She’s coming out, and she is expecting a grand entrance, so you might want to hire an assistant, tbh. You’re about to explode with ideas and not only that, but you'll have the drive to actually bring those ideas to life. Prepare yourself for a creative storm, and enjoy the ride!
All signs point to TAKE ACTION(!!!) dear crab… The arrangement of the stars are creating a big arrow in the sky, signaling that it’s time for you to start taking more steps in your "career development.” There’s a lot coming your way, but are you going to be ready for it, or are you going to let it pass you by? You’ve felt this energy approaching for a while, and it’s time to think more seriously about what you want to work toward. Take the steps to make it happen! Great things will take place in this realm you if you can turn your fear into excitement and motivation.
Hello, Leo! Last week I encouraged you to try on a new persona! How did that go? Did you enjoy it? I mean, did you really let loose? Keep on with this theme of reinventing yourself, because it takes time. How else can you give yourself a fresh start? You’re going to want to write things down — maybe even create a vision board. Better yet, make a little bucket list with all the places you want to travel to, and things you want to do. Tis the season for deep, personal change.
It’s a time to get grounded for you, Virgo. You’re just looking for the perfect place to plant your roots! You’ve been feeling a little floaty up until now, just trying to experience all the things, figuring out what you can. Thankfully, all of that exploration gave you a pretty damn good idea of what you want. The leap may seem like a big one, but it’ll be worth it. Do your research, of course, then take the chance & make the move!
You’ve just been waiting for some peace, little Libra! It’ll come, I promise, but there are still some shifts in the cosmos and in your life that need to occur before that happens. Hang in there just a little bit longer! You’re in an exploratory phase, trying to figure out where you belong and what your purpose is, and it can be exhausting at times! Make sure to take breaks to pause and reflect, but keep trying out and learning all that you can. If you’re smart, you’ll find peace and calm in the adventure.
On November 7th comes this year's only New Moon in Scorpio, and the cosmos want you to take this as a personal day. The finance sector of your chart will be lit up soon, and you will have a lot of pressure on you to make and keep this money. You'll need to be relaxed. What you use that money for is another question entirely. I suggest a makeover. Get educated about saving, investing, and ways to up your income. Secure the perfect future now.
You’re always one to stand out, Sagittarius. You could run for office with the way you get your ideas across to others. You know how to speak your mind with such positivity and confidence, and if you haven’t tried your superpower out yet, get on it! Because of your ability to speak the truth, people are magnetized, and sometimes even get their own identities confused because they want to fit in with you. This leaves you with the issue of figuring out who is being authentic around you. Trust that your gut will help you detect who is a good match, and who is just trying to leech off of your energy.
Such changes are in the works for you Capricorn, but are you ready for it? Goals and visions are emerging out of nowhere, and you are mesmerized. Don’t worry! You’ll have plenty of time to explore all of these things as the Universe slows down the pace. Pathways are lighting up, and thankfully, you won’t be pressured to pick right away. Take this introspective time to learn to be a little more mindful with meditation, yoga, or activities that will allow you to sit back and reflect.
Slap some gloss on that LinkedIn page of yours, and get ready for action. You are about to be making connections out the yin-yang! Your social life is blossoming, and these connections may hold some really cool networking opportunities. Have you been toying with the idea of starting a new venture? You’ll meet some awesome people like yourself who will be helpful to team up with. All you need to do is take advantage of these get-togethers.
Getting out of your comfort zone is the name of the game, Pisces. I know, you’ve made it so cozy and cute in there, and yeah, you can plan out your future career plans and travel destinations from the comfort of your own home, but how do you know that’s actually what you want to do without stepping out and getting a little experience? The key for you: small steps will bring you great leaps.
