From Ophira and Tali Edut, The Astrotwins.
In all honesty, you’re ready for a little anchoring. It’s been a whirlwind autumn ever since joyful Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, barreled into Libra on September 9, making its first visit since 2005. Woohoo! You may have zoomed off on a major reinvention tour or started down a whole new path, especially while the bold Sun was also in Libra last month. This was one birthday season where you really whooped it up—and after surviving a difficult 2016, you earned that celebration.
Jupiter will be in Libra until October 10, 2017, so you’ve got PLENTY of time to take advantage of this passionate reawakening. But this month, you may want to focus and prioritize more. What really matters to you? What are your values—and does your current life path align with those? Some Libras (Kim Kardashian and Billy Bush come to mind as celebrity examples) dealt with issues of overexposure, getting a jarring wakeup call that meant having to take a big step back and reevaluate. Going through the motions won’t cut it for you anymore, Libra.
This month is a great time for soul-searching, especially at the November 14 Taurus full moon—also a potent supermoon—which illuminates your eighth house of intimacy, sex, joint ventures and deep emotions. This is a moment to make sure your mind, body and soul are all in balance. If one of those areas has been neglected, give it some extra love. Intense emotions, especially ones you’ve been hiding, could break through the surface, their potency taking you by surprise. Your moderate sign doesn’t always express yourself with THIS much force and conviction. But it’s a match for the level of depth and passion that you feel today. A simmering attraction could explode into a full-on carnival of lust. Hello, mind-body-soul chemistry! This full moon could also bring a financial turning point or a possible windfall. A savvy investment could pay off, a legal matter may resolve or you could buy or sell property.
More clarity arrives on November 19, when foggy Neptune ends a five-month retrograde (backward) trip through Pisces and your sixth house of health, fitness and organization. If you’ve fallen off the wellness wagon or clutter has crept back into your life, consider that it’s a reflection of your own inner state. Perhaps you’ve been avoiding dealing with certain feelings and worries—and that was at the root of your procrastination. Or maybe you subconsciously knew that once you started cleaning out your junk drawer, for example, it would open the floodgates and force you to deal with THAT issue. An emotionally-linked health or medical issue may also have plagued you since mid-June. For example, a chronic pain in your lower back could have signaled a deeper sense of feeling unsupported…and you had to address both the physical symptom AND the emotional root.
With Neptune powering forward, you’ll be able to identify these underlying issues, and you’ll have an easier time breaking past resistance and fear. Supportive people who went MIA during Neptune retrograde could resurface. Don’t do it alone, Libra! You could decide to hire some help. A savvy service provider or a trained professional could get you over the hump—because really, aren’t you sick of being stuck here by now, Libra?
To find these people, just start asking around. Or, you could bump into them at a party! On November 21, the Sun starts a monthlong visit to Sagittarius, your expressive and social third house. The serious vibes lighten up considerably—it’s time to flutter into holiday party season and do some of your trademark Libra mingling. Save a few slots in your calendar, because it will fill up fast! This is a great time for pitches, meetings, writing and marketing. Get your message out there, both on social media and in real time. And pack some extra business cards, because you’re bound to befriend some kindred spirits while you’re on the holiday party circuit.
Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. is on November 24, a day that could be one of the most combustible this month. Eek! Outspoken Jupiter in Libra will form a hotheaded square to controlling Pluto in Capricorn, your fourth house of home and family. Gathering ’round the turkey could be anything but peaceful—in fact, there could be an epic showdown, possibly with a female relative.
You’re fired up to assert yourself this year…no more of that people-pleasing or “going along to get along.” Perhaps you voted for an entirely different presidential candidate than the rest of your clan, which puts you in the hotseat after an intense election season in the U.S. Or maybe someone is just threatened by your self-confident new Jupiterian swagger. Even doing something as innocuous as renting a hotel room (rather than tossing and turning on a thin sleeper sofa mattress) could be construed as you being “uppity” and ungrateful.
Puh-leeze! Who do you think you are? Um…a human being who deserves a decent night of sleep. And an adult who is allowed to set boundaries and make their own choices. Just make sure that, if you’re a guest, you honor the house rules of your parents or relatives. Show up on time, help with some of the serving and cleanup, be a gracious guest. And if you’re the host, you reserve the right to ask an obnoxious or aggressive person to leave. Nobody has the right to disrespect you—least of all under YOUR roof!
If things got heated or ugly, you can stage a do-over on November 29, when the Sagittarius new moon lights the way for a fresh start with communication. Dialogue could be productive and you can begin hashing out new and improved ways of interacting. This is also a great day for pitching an idea or planting the seeds for a collaboration. Just watch out for a close square from hazy Neptune. An assistant or employee might be a little out of line today, or you could start to get codependent, rushing in for the save. Don’t agree to anything out of guilt or because you “feel bad.” Any synergies need to begin with clear agreements and total transparency. Don’t promise you’ll do something that you have no intention of following through on, just in the hopes that someone will like you. In the long run, you’ll do a lot more damage that way—so be upfront and honest!
