Oh hey, birthday girl! The Sun is in your house of self the first three weeks of the month, so it’s a killer time to do all the things you do best: feel deep feels, know when people are full of shit, and blow everyone away in the sack. On the 8th, Jupiter will move into your house of shadows, the subconscious, and spirituality, where it’ll hang out for about a year. Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion, so November into 2019 is your time to go big on witchy shit: tarot, reiki, psychic mediums—all of it. Work that gets you to look at your subconscious beliefs and motivations will be important, too. You might also have to deal with some secrets during this phase, either your own or others’, so heads up there. On the 16th, Mercury retrograde comes back for its final tour through 2018, also hitting up your house of secrets and the subconscious. This is actually a really good time to revisit issues from your childhood that set you up to feel some kind of way about your self-worth, people (are they generally good or generally POSs?), and the world (supportive or nah?). You might also get a version of telephone going with someone’s secret (yours or someone else’s), so don’t believe anything til you can get clarification. On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini lights up your house of work and service. Gem rules communication and publishing, so any work you’re passionate about in those areas will get a bump. You also may have a great presentation or meeting at the office, so circle that date, bb, it’s a good one.
Girl! Your birthday may not be for a minute, but the Cosmos are hooking up the presents Oprah-style. For starters, the Sun’s in your house of earned income for most of the month, so be on the lookout for a nice, fat check heading your way. On the 8th, Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, where it’ll hang out for about a year! Dude—this planet oversees luck and expansion, so fuck yes so hard. Travel is especially favored with this duo, so plan your 2019 excursions now. Just in general though, good things are about to come easier, faster, and bigger for ya, Sag—that’s the message here. On the 16th, Mercury enters its final ’18 retrograde, this time in Sagittarius (womp). The bad: potential communication meltdowns and travel delays. The good: opps to revamp how you communicate. The warnings: no signing of the contracts, no buying of the mechanical things. On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini lands in your house of partnerships. If you’re looking for that perma-boo or trying to get next-level in your current relationship, this is a great day to make moves, Fire Babe! You may also just find that a convo needs to happen with you and someone you’re teamed up with (biz partners, drinking partners—any and all partners). Gemini rules communication, but since Mercury will be retrograde, do your best to stay honest without being a dick. Words to live by, if I don’t say so myself.
It’s a mixed bag this month, Cap, but you’re starting off strong! The Sun in Scorp is lighting up your house of communication for most of the month, which could mean some intense and emotional convos on the horizon (not your favorite, I know, but with Scorpio in the mix, these talks could definitely be game-changers, so don’t shy away). On the 8th, shit gets good when Jupiter moves into your house of ca$h money, bb! Obviously everyone wants this, but you being your money-luvin’ Capricorn self, this is especially good news. Jupiter rules luck and expansion and hangs out in each sign for a year, so get ready to rake in the bucks well into 2019. On the 16th, Mercury begins its final retrograde transit of the year, also hitting up your house of earned income. Blargh. Some miscommunications around money or delays in getting paid could be on the menu but should start to clear up after Dec. 6th, so it’s not too much of a bummer. On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini lights up your house of transformation. It’s basically echoing what’s going on with the Sun, but in reverse: Gem rules the house of communication, and Scorpio oversees the house of transformation—Gem and Scorp together means an emotionally intense (and transformative) talk, presentation, or published piece. (Or that you have amazing sex with a Gemini!) But TBH it’s probably the communication thing, so put on those big girl panties and get vulnerable, Cap. It’ll make all the difference.
Ready for the feels Aquarius? The Sun is in intense, emotionally relentless Scorpio, and it’s hitting up your house of home and family. Scorpio rules transformation, so you might be moving, but more than likely you’ll be having some intense convos with family or roomies. Not fun times, but potentially powerful, so face the music bravely, bb. On the 8th, Jupiter moves into your house of communication for a year! Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion, so the vibes are v good, Air Mama. I see real opportunities for you in self-expression this year—whether it’s publishing your book, starting a blog, or just talking through issues with the peeps you love the most. Communication isn’t only about words though. If you communicate through art, music, dance—this is your year, too. On the 16th, Mercury retrogrades for the last time this year, landing in your house of… communication! (Womp.) So while this is a good year for you to express yourself, Nov. 16th- Dec. 6th could be a rough patch. Avoid presentations, negotiating, and heart-to-hearts during this stint (plus travel, signing contracts, and all things mechanical). On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini will land in your house of long-term plans and foreign travel. Gemini rules higher learning, and this house does, too—if you’ve been trying to get into school or take classes of some kind, you should see results on or around this day. You may also get a message about travel on the full moon, so heads up there. In general, it’s posi vibes this month, so have at it, Aquarius.
Time to play, Pisces! The Sun is hitting up your house of leisure and creativity. Color in coloring books, take road trips, roller skate—do you, but like, 10-year-old you. On the 8th, Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion, moves into Sagittarius and your house of home and family, where it’ll hang out for a year. So tight, Pisces! Sagittarius is actually restless af—she loves to travel and see the world, so you might move or start planning a move this year. Sagittarius is a super upbeat, fun sign, so get ready for good times at home and with whoever you call family (pets are basically people so they totes count). That said, November maybe isn’t the best example of that because from November 16th to December 6th, Mercury is retrograde in your house of home and family (ugh why tho). It’s v likely that you’ll have some srs communication breakdowns with family, chosen family, or roomies. If you can hold off on the heart-to-hearts till after the 6th, I highly recommend that strategy. On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini in the 10th house is gonna bring important news on the work front, especially in the areas of publishing, writing, PR, and communications. If those aren’t your professional arenas, you might be having an important meeting, presentation, or report to give around this day. Work hard, play hard—that’s your memo from the Cosmos this month, Fish Mama, so go get ‘em.
Werk, werk, werk, werk, werk (Rihanna voice). The Sun in Scorpio is lighting up your house of work and service for most of the month. Scorpio is whole-hearted and borderline obsessive, so I see you plunging into work headfirst and loving it. On the 8th, Jupiter in Sagittarius moves into your house of fun and creativity, where it’ll hang out for a year. YES OMG YES. Sagittarius is fun loving, adventurous, and expansive, and this house is super playful and imaginative. Whatever creative projects you’re working on this year will see serious growth—but most importantly, growth that happens because of how much fun you’re having with the work. On the 16th, Mercury retrograde jumps into the mix for a 2018 finale. For you, it’s actually also falling into your house of creativity and fun. WOOF. If you have travel plans from this day to December 6th, delays are def possible. Creative projects could also suffer from communication breakdowns with your team or coworkers—you’ve been warned. On the 23rd, a full moon in talkative, social Gemini will light up your house of friends and networking circles. Love this for you, Ram Babe! I see you and your squad hitting up the clurb in a real way, either that, or you’ll be networking like crazy and making moves for yourself. It’s good shit both ways, Aries, so get after it.
It’s gettin’ steamy, Bull Babes. For most of the month, the Sun in Scorpio will be transiting your house of partnerships. If you’re booed up or if you have a potential boo, Scorpio could be bring in commitment talks, mind-blowing sex, and/or deep af feels. She could also bring in jealousy, obsession, or vengeance, so watch out. All this applies to non-romantic partners, too (minus the sex), so heads up with biz partners, etc. On the 8th, Jupiter in Sagittarius moves into your house of work and service, where it’ll chill out for the next year. Sagittarius is the traveler of the zodiac, so you may be traveling for work or planning to. She’s also adventurous, fun loving, and hungry for knowledge, so you might see transformations in your work as a result of those vibes. Maybe you take a mentee position to gain knowledge in your field, maybe you try out a totally new line of work, or maybe you just start to have a fuck ton of fun with what you do. On the 16th, Mercury retrograde does one last song and dance for us before the end of the year, and this one is also hitting up your house of work and service. From this day till December 6th, there could be some definite miscommunications at the office. If you’re trying to negotiate your salary or pitch an idea, for sure wait till the second week of December, bb. On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini will move into your house of shadows, secrets, and spirituality. Gemini loves to learn and teach, so you might be studying up on/teaching about the magical arts (tarot, reiki, etc.). Gem’s also a big talker, and its shadow energy is deceptive—be careful about secrets, from you or about you. Steer clear of the drama and live up the good stuff, Taurus.
Get ready to switch things up, Gem! For most of the month, the Sun in Scorpio is lighting up your house of transformation (the house that Scorpio oversees—double whammy!). This time may bring a loss but it also may bring an important birth—life changing, actually, so open yourself up to the shift. On the 8th, Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion, moves into your house of partnerships, where it’ll post up for a whole year—fuck. yes. You’ll make huge headway in the partner area, whether it’s meeting your perma-boo, putting a ring on it, locking down a biz partner, or making some super fun shit happen with your ride-or-die in crime. Project Runway fashion guru Nina Garcia once said, “Collaboration is where the magic happens,” or whatever she said during that team challenge, and henny, I’m here to tell you that that magic is happening for you in the next year. Except not for the three weeks between November 16th and December 6th, when Mercury retrogrades in your house of partnerships and throws a wrench in the good vibes. You may run into communication breakdowns with partners you’re currently teamed up with (biz, romance, or otherwise). That, or past partners could show up out of the woodwork so the two of you can resolve any unresolved shit (not necessarily fun, but potentially v cathartic). On the 23rd, a full moon in none other than Gemini will shine its smart, social, chatty light on the world, helping you reap rewards and make moves. It’s a killer time to make waves, so get out there, Gem.
You’re in it for the long haul this month, Crab Mama! The Sun in Scorpio is moving into your house of long-term plans and foreign affairs. Scorpio is dedicated to the point of fixation, so you may find the thing you’re obsessed with and jump in full force. Or, with sexy Scorpio in the mix, you might just have mind-blowing sex with a hottie from abroady (lol couldn’t help it). On the 8th, Jupiter in Sagittarius moves into your house of transformation, where it’ll chill out for a year. Big things on the horizon! Sagittarius loves travel—she’s adventurous and curious. I see you either moving this year or taking some trips that change your life philosophy and expand your worldview. You have a whole year to make it happen, but ease up from the 16th to December 6th. During those weeks, Mercury retrogrades in that same house of long-term plans and foreign matters, which could make travel/travel planning a super bummer and cause communication breakdowns with anyone from faraway places. Woof. On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini will light up your house of earned income. YES GIRL, make that money! Gemini rules communications and publishing, so those areas could be v profitable on the 23rd, but you also might just get an important message about money around that day. Pretty good all in all, Cancer, pretty damn good.
Shine on, you crazy lion! For most of the month, the Sun in Scorpio will light up your career sector. Scorpio is driven, focused, and wholehearted; I see you taking on passion projects you’re obsessed with or getting super pumped on your day job. Hell yeah. On the 8th, Jupiter in Sagittarius moves into your house of long-term plans and foreign travels, and will chill out there for an entire year! Sagittarius actually rules this house, so you get some extra cosmic lovin’. It’s a killer year to do up all the Sag specialties: travel to new places, move to a different city, go to school, or like, become a monk (those archers big on life philosophies—it’s cool, but ixnay on the cults, k?). From the 16th to December 6th, Mercury will retrograde through your house of death/rebirth and sex. This is the perfect time to look back and reflect on any dead weight you’ve been holding onto. Drop it, bb, because once you do, you’ll usher in all kinds of good new shit. You might also have some miscommunications with someone you’re sleeping with or have slept with in the past. Sexting is basically a disaster during this period, so hold out till after the first week of December. On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini will light up your house of communication. The bummer is that this house is ruled by Mercury, who’ll be retrograding, making communication especially difficult on and around this day. You’re not one to bite your tongue, Fire Babe, but do your best—just until you get on the other side of this retrograde business and have had time to cool off.
Quite the buzz going on this month, Virgo! The Sun in Scorpio is sending feels into your friend zone, and it’s pretty intense. When Scorpio goes, she goes all. the. way. She wants deep connection, total loyalty, and emotional bravery, so you might be getting mega close with your crew. She also wants sex (we all know about Scorpios in bed)—so you and a pal might be getting next-level under the sheets. Scorpio is also about death and rebirth, so it may be time to let some people in your circle go so you can make room for new pals. On the 8th, Jupiter in Sagittarius moves into your house of career and fame, where it’ll hang out for a whole year. THIS IS SO TIGHT. Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion, so you’ll likely be making srs boss moves this year and getting noticed for what you do. You might also travel a ton for work, since that’s a major Sag trait. All that said, career stuff could be a little rocky from the 16th to December 6th, when Mercury retrogrades through this same house. Communication breakdowns are totes possible, so ixnay on presentations, negotiations, and snarky emails. Technology and mechanical devices are also likely to go haywire during this period, so if you handle any of those at work, heads up. On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini will light up your house of home and family. Gemini is ruled by fast-moving Mercury, and this could mean a kind of instability or chaos at home. That, or a srs need to express yourself (Gem’s fave). Since Mercury, Gem’s planet, will be retrograde on the full moon, just remember to watch your words should arguments arise. You’re not one to lash out, but y’all Virgos can throw majorly condescending shade. Save that shit for your journal, bb, and keep it nice.
So deep right now, Libra! The Sun in Scorpio, lover of all things occult, secretive, and otherworldly, is in your house of the occult, secrets, and spirituality. If you’re into tarot, psychic readings, hypnotism—now’s the time to for a deep dive. There may also be some secrets floating around—from you or about you. If you’re keeping something under wraps, remember that nothing can hide forever. On the 8th, Jupiter will move into Sagittarius and your house of friends and networks, where it’ll hang out for a whole year. YAY! Both Jupiter and Sagittarius are friendly and expansive, so you could really grow your friend base this year. It’s also the house of networking and the Internet, so there’s lots of potential to meet all the right people and/or make waves on your social media channels. There is one catch: From the 16th to December 6th, Mercury will retrograde in this same house, basically creating the opposite of everything I just said: fights and break-ups in your crew, angry Facebook wars, accidentally sexting a potential mentor instead of bae. Hold off on any and all important communications till after the first week of December. On the 23rd, a full moon in Gemini will light up your house of creativity and fun. Gemini is full of smart, interesting ideas, so work on your creative projects on this day—some genius shit could come out of it. You might also just do something fun or laid back, since this house also oversees play. I say go for it, but if you have someone else in tow, just be careful of quarreling (nothing like a road trip to bring out the someone’s inner ‘lil bitch). With Mercury retrograding, it’s super important you call on that Libra refinement and diplomacy in all convos to help keep things copacetic.
