Yesterday’s October 31st Taurus Hallowe’en Full Moon conjunct unpredictable Uranus kicked open a door you’d never realised was there, delivering jolting shocks and surprises ahead of the Mercury Direct Storm on November 3rd.
The Messenger stations to turn forward on 25 Libra conjunct Haumea-harbinger of epochal events- opposite Disruptor Eris and squaring sober Saturn twice in 5 days. Already across Europe, a second round of lockdowns has been imposed against the background of a Fatwa against France and a seismic earthquake in Turkey and Greece. Expect a charged week of Trickster chaos with US voting system glitches. Given Mars retrograde until November 14th and the 3rd Jupiter/Pluto Conjunction on November 12th, nothing is going to be cut and dried.
The rapidly approaching end of an entire epoch, a permanent shift in the Zeitgeist, plus the first US Pluto Return since the Founding Fathers, are putting current political dramas into their correct perspective i.e. little more than trying to frantically re-arrange the deckchairs on the Titanic. The key players will appear and disappear lit by the flickering light of publicity and social media but the coming social transformation between 2021-43 is going to be so much more powerful than any party or person.
Powerful Magnetics are Shaking, Recoding and Overwriting Old Realities.
Even in our 4D tribes, there are still so many making futile attempts to get back to how it used to be, so many stuck in outdated New Age practices naïvely expecting that we can just wait for a silver bullet in the shape of a one-shot vaccine or a new leader and then go singing and dancing into a sparkling new Aquarian Age of love and light.
In your own life, drop any attachment and expectations around to the way things should be, or used to be, or could be and stay wide open to the mysteries of What Is…..
Transitioning to becoming a savvy influencer in the emerging Aquarian Paradigm means mastering your own narrative, internally and externally.
The Chandra Symbol for Mercury Direct 25 Libra:
In the midst of a forest, a great circular open area.
“In Celtic lands, steeped in a power beyond the world, there were openings always into other times and places, from within this time and place. Discovering once again these passages, and sending an expanded part of yourself to explore and inhabit all of the times and places officially denied. And being therefore given to a harkening to the unknown and to the sensibility of simultaneously feeling linked up with just about everybody everywhere in a mystical, magical realization that pulls you along and calls one to become free and true, you walk onward into the limitless ways as though you had never lost them and no time had elapsed between great inward breaths.” Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale
Aries Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
It’s a week when any issues, problems or glitches raised by the recent Mercury retrograde in your opposite sign become crystal clear, calling for your attention. Find a way to re-balance the dynamics between time spent at home and at work, as partners, both personal and professional, will be making their feelings obvious. As you do, put yourself and your emotional needs right at the centre. When your personal planet Mars turns forward on November 14th, it’s past time to reclaim your confidence and self-belief.
Trusting your gut instinct.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
That Full Moon on Hallowe’en in Taurus was a definite wake up call. Revolutionary Uranus is using shock tactics to shake you up and shake you out of your old comfort zones, showing you that your beliefs about what is possible for you in this lifetime have been woefully limited. Start by identifying all the made up inner “rules” you live by -such as any thought starting with “I’m not the sort of person who… or I could never do X or Y” – and then experiment with breaking them one by one.
It’s your life. You get to make it up as you go along.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
Whenever your personal planet Mercury changes direction, you have an opportunity to expand your self-awareness. On November 3rd the Messenger slows to turn direct in Libra kicking up a Trickster storm. It’s time to liberate yourself from some old ghosts of limiting beliefs that have been playing on a loop for years. Think about all the ways you’ve stopped yourself living as you’d really like, all the mistaken ideas about what is possible for you. They probably had some sort of a pay off, in that they kept you small and safe but at what cost?
Catch yourself every time you come up with a great idea and then think:” Yes, but…”
Cancer Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
Mars retrograde in your 10th House and Mercury retrograde in your 4th House have been an extended lesson in self-mastery. On November 3rd the Messenger slows to turn forward and you start to see what needs leaving at the side of the road so you can move on, lighter and freer. This is likely to bring along with it the realisation that you’re carrying other people’s baggage on top of your own. Did they ask you to or did you just pick it up? Put it all down and decide what is yours and yours alone. An old childhood pattern of earning brownie points by putting your own needs last by being “good” and “helpful” needs deleting.
That was then, this is now.
Leo Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
What surprises arrived at the October 31st Full Moon? Those Uranian lightning bolts lit up the pinnacle of your chart giving you unexpected insights into your career direction and hopefully changing your priorities. The importance of this will be underlined on November 3rd when Mercury turns forward in your zone of connection and communication and again on November 14th when Mars jars free in you something that has been stuck for years. See November as the breaking up of a psychological and emotional log jam.
Change is an inside job.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
Both Mercury and Mars travelling slowly retrograde in recent weeks through your 2nd and 8th Houses have been steadily eroding and erasing some of your old imprinting from family or the collective. As the Guide of Souls turns forward on November 3rd, some welcome clarity returns. It’s time to put daylight between who you were told you were and who you actually are. There is nothing for you to do, practise or change-just be patient and gentle as abandoned parts of yourself emerge from their hiding places with gifts and qualities you long ago consigned to the shadows.
Libra Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
On November 3rd, Mercury slows to turn forward in your sign. The days surrounding kick up a Mercury storm when the Trickster is in full on wily coyote mode, so take a step back until the dust has settled. In your solar chart, Mars is also retrograde and between them hiccups, glitches, problems and crossed wires in your closest relationship have multiplied. If you look at these more closely, you’ll discover an old pattern -probably going back to childhood- of avoiding difficult issues to keep the peace. This has had the unintended consequence of blocking real intimacy. That’s your big clue to the way forward.
A lightbulb moment.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
There’s so much going on behind the scenes for you, most of which is in your head. With both Mercury and Venus in the deepest hidden part of your chart-the 12th house engine room-where your unconscious defences operate outside your awareness, you might be feeling uncharacteristically edgy or vulnerable. On November 3rd, the Guide of Souls slows to turn forward kicking up a Trickster storm creating a hall of mirrors. Very little will be cut and dried, so be gentle with yourself, letting answers to questions you didn’t even know you’d asked arise in their own time.
“Through a glass, darkly”.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
The Hallowe’en Taurus Full Moon probably threw a few shocks or surprises your way, potentially unsettling your sense of security. The current astrology is a reminder that no matter how you try, you can’t nail everything down to stop it blowing away. This week on November 3rd, Mercury turns forward again reminding you to strengthen and expand your alliances, friendships, networks and groups. Your tribe, your people and supporters are your ballast against unexpected change. Recognise them by the way you can be yourself without fear of judgment- a rare feeling these days.
No more lone ranger.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
Some Capricorn questions to ponder this week are:” What am I not seeing? What am I not saying? Where am I hiding my head in the sand?” With Mars retrograde at the base of your chart excavating old family imprinting – how you got here from back there -plus Mercury turning slowly forward at the top of your chart on November 3rd, you’re suddenly noticing old patterns that have driven and shaped your career and relationship choices. Do they serve you or keep you stuck behind a mask you long ago outgrew?
What’s the gift in these learnings?
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
Imagine standing admiring the view on a beautiful sandy beach when suddenly all the water rushes out to sea……you can feel that something big is headed your way but it’s still out of sight. You can’t put your finger on your 6th sense or identify what’s coming towards you but you know it means business…the perfect word to describe Saturn arriving in Aquarius accompanied by Jupiter in 7 weeks’ time. There’s nothing to do, but wait, pressing the stop button whenever you start playing those negative inner tapes on a loop. You do have choices-you can wait passively or expectantly; you can be at cause rather than at effect.
“It may be when you no longer know what to do that you have come to your real work and that when you no longer know which way to go, you have begun your real journey.” – Wendell Berry
Pisces Weekly Forecast: Nov 1-8, 2020
November’s third and final Jupiter/Pluto encounter in your angle of alliances is an ace up your sleeve. You’ve already benefited from the April and June conjunctions by widening your circle of friends, colleagues and contacts and now is the time to mine them for gold. Not in a material sense-although that could be an unintended consequence-but in terms of support. After November 3rd when planet of commerce Mercury turns forward, some of your creative behind the scenes efforts should start to bear fruit. You’ll definitely get clarity on which of those ideas for new income streams will work and which to drop.
Let your passion, instincts and creativity out to play.
