Claiming Your Unwritten Potential: Astrology Forecast November 4–11, 2018

Claiming Your Unwritten Potential: Jupiter in Sagittarius November 9, 2018–December 3, 2019.

Jupiter returns to Sagittarius at the November 8 New Moon in Scorpio — a catalyst for positive healing, forward momentum and major transformation through the sacred geometric Grand Trine between Jupiter, Chiron and the Node of Fate. Between November 8th, 2018 – December 3rd 2019 Jupiter the Hierophant – literally the Light Bearer – in mutable fiery Sagittarius is on home territory.

The Chandra Symbol for the Scorpio New Moon: A woman with a gold tooth.

“An extraordinary gift and utterly redemptive. You invent, conceive, bring into being whatever you hope for and whatever you dread. Usually the dreads come up more first and dominate for a while. In this cycle you scare up the world’s most extreme melodramas, each one of them marked “no way out, no way through.” If you should outlast your dread demons, and you shall, you will find, in a very different direction, that there are equally powerful hope angels. You hope and wish and yearn for everybody to go free and this wishing has deep, uncanny power. For you have been nourishing for a very long time two counteracting worlds: the one dark and heavy with foreboding; the other swept clean by the magical will to bring the world around right. The one who made the light go out brings the light back in a seasoned, tempered form. And this renewed light is phosphorescent, glowing in the world’s darkness, seeing the way clear, knowing it can be done.”

The gift of Sagittarian centauric consciousness is the ability to hold both rational thought (Mind) and intuitive awareness (Soma) in your connection to the unified Field that lies beyond what you perceive — the world behind the world.

Travelling through fiery Sagittarius, the largest planet in our solar system will gradually create more spaciousness, more options, more light of wisdom by re-igniting the flickering spark of hope. Whichever aspect of your life is represented by Sagittarius in your birth mandala is now beginning a new 12-year cycle. After so much fragmentation and disillusionment, there are mountains to be explored and glimmerings of wholeness and healing. For more sign up to my November 5D Report “Signposting 2019” .

  • Jupiter Key Words: Guru; Light Bearer; expansion, wisdom; drama; optimism; growth; possibilities; enthusiasm; the big picture.
  • Sagittarius Key Words: far horizons; questing; seeking; visioneering; future oriented; philosophical; meaning seeking.

Caveat: Jupiter expands whatever he touches, blowing things way out of proportion. The shadow side of this year long passage is: drama, hype, polarisation, fanaticism, bull markets crashing. The tendency to take offence at the slightest thing then mount a campaign will increase. Look at recent times for a repeat theme: the years when Pluto was in Sagittarius (1995 — 2008) were years of overspending, debt and overreaching. They ended with a crash in 2008.

Framed in chaos theory, you have reached a choice point somewhere between your usual comfort zone and infinity. The task now is to balance living between Structure — supportive routines — and Surprise — the spontaneous and unplanned. Start now by deliberately attracting new people, new ideas and new encounters into your life by sensing and seizing emerging flickers of possibility. Jupiter is often described as bringing luck but luck is created when you’re willing to take risks, follow your hunches and take every opportunity to expand your world. Creative ways to do just this are by:

  • removing your habitual blinkers/judgments
  • navigating by your sensory acuity
  • purposefully expanding your people/contacts landscape
  • rekindling passion, enthusiasm and hope
  • knowing your core values + living your life around them as your North Star
  • keeping the meta picture in mind while acting in micro i.e. helicopter vision
  • integrating the wisdom born out of your own experience
  • shining the light of sacred laws for others learned from your own experience
  • recognising the Law of Life Mastery and bridging your worldly life with your soul

Aries Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

Fresh faces and fresh ideas.

Two rare planetary events this week will blowing a blast of fresh air through your life — prepare to make changes or be changed. Awakener Uranus has moved back into your own sign until next March merging with Eris to disrupt your comfort zone, while the largest planet in the solar system Jupiter enters Sagittarius on Thursday November 8th to stay until December 2019. For the first time since 2006, you have a free pass to explore far horizons. It’s beyond time to expand beyond your familiar four walls — literally and metaphorically — by throwing a monkey wrench into stale routines and expectations. Prepare to shake up your world view, your mental circuitry and your belief system. Collaborate with this ticket to ride by taking a class, learning something completely new, travelling or by teaching.

Taurus Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

Luck is created by seizing opportunities.

As planet of shocks and surprises Uranus leaves your sign until March 2019, welcome a breathing space and the time to take stock of what’s changed since May 15th. Your own planet, Venus, is also travelling backwards until November 16th excavating old dreams you’d left by the roadside for another look at possibilities. That’s perfect timing as expansive Jupiter returns to your 8th House of finances and resources on Thursday for the first time since 2006. From now on, be open and receptive to offers of partnerships — probably professional — that could take those ideas from dreams to reality in the months to come.

Gemini Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

This is going to be a year of self-discovery no matter what age you are.

As the old saying goes, everything comes to those who wait. Whether you knew it or not, you’ve been waiting a long 12 years — ever since 2006 — for gift bringer Jupiter to return to your opposite sign. You’re getting to ready to express a new way of being in the world and experience the evolutionary impact of others in your life. This is all about the gap between how you see yourself and how others see you. Ask yourself:” Does my personal style reflect who I am now or who I used to be?” During Jupiter’s yearlong trip through Sagittarius, find a balance that works for you between Self and others, dependence and independence.

Cancer Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

The road less travelled.

Two important planetary shifts are going to blow the winds of change through your habitual roles and routines. Awakener and shapeshifter Uranus is moving back through your career zone until March 2019, reviving offers you thought you’d missed the first time round through hesitation, indecision or uncertainty. In hindsight, perhaps you played it too safe and would welcome another bite of the cherry. If so, gift bringer Jupiter returning to your work zone is all about breaking old habits and adjusting to a whole new set of circumstances. Upgrading is on the cards — your wellbeing, your skill set and your mind/body/spirit. From now on whenever you have a choice between sticking to the old or risking the new, choose the new — this time round, you won’t regret it.

Leo Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

Give yourself free rein with no hard and fast expectations.

Wednesday’s New Moon starts a whole new cycle in connection with your home, family or tribe. Issues that have been around for a while can be tackled and sorted as long as you keep everyone on side and in the loop. The sooner you do this the better as expansionist Jupiter lights up your zone of creativity and contribution for a whole year from Thursday November 8th. This is a green light to pull long-abandoned hopes and dreams from the dusty recesses of your past and bring them into the light of day to see if any of them can be rekindled. You’re preparing to express your most authentic self and to get out there and be seen. What motivates you is your need to make a difference and to add value for others.

Virgo Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

Aligning your future with your past.

Not since 2006 have you experienced gift bringer Jupiter crossing the base of your chart. This is big news – literally — as Jupiter expands everything and everyone he touches. The most private part of your life — your home, your roots, your family and your personal mission — have the potential to blossom into their fullest potential as long as you focus on creating a meaningful legacy and purpose in life. This means bringing the best parts of your past along with you as you shape your life to match who you are now, not who you used to be. People will be much more responsive to you and ready to come on board when they understand what you’re trying to achieve.

Libra Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

Finding a new platform.

If you’ve been it harder than usual to get others on board with your plans, take heart — the tide is turning. Your own planet, Venus, has been retrograde for some time and will turn forward again on November 16th. This week on Thursday 8th expansionist Jupiter lights up your zone of communication again for the first time since 2006. If your old ways of thinking haven’t been delivering the results you’d hoped for, now’s the time to upgrade your skills, so you can create rapport with whoever crosses your path. It’s an opportunity to blow away the cobwebs and update your presentation, your your resume and, most importantly, the value you can add.

Scorpio Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

If you’ve been thinking of starting your own business, take a leap of faith but first do the research.

Expect to get a second wind this week as the annual New Moon in your sign begins your personal New Year making you feel good in your own skin after what has been a draining time. Adding to the celebration, Jupiter activates your zone of finances, earned income and personal resources from Thursday November 8th, 2019, sprinkling his own brand of gold dust on your plans and dreams for an entire year. Now’s the time to do an audit of your talents, qualities, resources, life experience and finances so you can appreciate what you have to offer and then repackage it into a new way to add value for other people.

Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

Hope in a bottle.

Out of all the signs, you’ve just won the lottery for the next 12 months. Not since 2006 has your own ruler expansive Jupiter been in your sign, opening doors for you and generally smoothing your path. Think back 12 years to opportunities that came out of thin blue air. This is the start of a whole new cycle and a harbinger of better things to come. Remember that to attract luck you have to be open to new people, new adventures and new directions so that life can make the connections. It’s no good just sitting back and waiting for it to fall in your lap. So get out there, think big and follow your passion — that’s your North Star.

Capricorn Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

Not just thinking out of the box but jumping on it.

Planet of surprises Uranus is moving back into your 4th House of home, family and tribes, bringing both insights into how to strengthen your bonds and a maverick approach to your work/life balance. Maverick is not a word that is often used to describe you as a Capricorn but your innate ability to keep your eyes on the prize when everyone else has given up can throw a curve ball at your rivals. From Thursday November 8th when expansionist Jupiter enters the deepest part of your chart for an entire year, you will be seeding your future, investing everything you’ve got into a new direction. With the support of collaborators, the results will arrive in 2019.So get those who matter onside now.

Aquarius Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

Nothing venture, nothing gained.

Sometimes grace arrives when you least expect it and this week is one of those times. Wednesday’s bright New Moon in Scorpio is lighting the pinnacle of your chart delivering your annual opportunity to set a new career direction. With expansionist Jupiter moving into your zone of alliances and creativity on Thursday for an entire year encouraging you to think big, don’t waste a moment. This is prime time to launch a business, write a blog, create multiple passive income streams. And if you’re thinking no way, think again. It’s just a question of pulling your experience, skills, resources and passions into a different package.

Pisces Weekly Forecast: November 4–11 2018

Seize the day.

Take heart — on Thursday Jupiter the gift bringer returns to the pinnacle of your chart to stay for an entire year. Not since 2006 have you enjoyed such support. Between 2015 and December 2017 restrictive Saturn in this part of your chart kept your nose to the grindstone. Now you’re going to see the results and the rewards for investing in yourself when the going got tough. Don’t sit and wait for things to fall into your lap, go out there and ask what you’re worth. Draw a clear line in the sand about what is negotiable or non- negotiable. Get your career evidence trail updated and use it to back up your negotiations.
