(March 21– April 19) (April 20–May 20)
By Sunny Disposish
Aries With November comes a real sense of completion and endings, as the darkness creeps across the sky and into our bones. During November, your mind and spirit may enter an introspective stage. Rams may wish to take stock of the year, and think about what’s to come in the future. The first day of the month is All Saints Day, when we typically give thanks to our ancestors. Why not go a little deeper and consider all of those who came before you? During this mysterious month, let the voices of November speak to you, igniting your imagination and your magic. Light a candle and reflect. Journal any thoughts that come forward. Taurus As the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer, November is the perfect time to embrace the warmth and comfort of home. Whether you’re snuggled up with a good book, enjoying a cup of tea, or simply spending time with loved ones, this month is all about finding joy in the simple things. Time for Bulls to take stock! Write down all of your accomplishments from the past six months, and consider those who have supported you in your journey. Be grateful for all that has been shown to you, and perhaps pay it forward as well. Gemini (May 21–June 20) Hang on to your wallets, Gemini! You’ve been opening up your heart (and your pocketbook) quite a bit lately. Nothing wrong with that of course, but do ensure you have a plan going forward and your head(s) firmly on your shoulders. Twins do tend to get easily carried away sometimes. There’s an angel and a devil on your shoulder these days—which one are you going to listen to? Make cappuccino plans with an old friend. Nothing like a quick pause in one’s busy day to reflect upon what matters most. Connections are everything! A crafty hobby brings you joy. Cancer (June 21–July 22) Don’t cry, Cancer. This time of year does come with a little melancholy to be sure. Few sounds say November like the wind. As always, water signs do tend to find some solace in the kitchen. Whipping up some homemade bread or a pie for the family can always put people in better spirits. But who cares for the caregiver? Take some time out for yourself for some ever-important self-care, however that looks to you. The crackling of burning logs on a hearth wards off the chill of a dark November night. Small children can be a source of joy right now. Remember the simple things! Leo (July 23– August 22) Your creative fires are burning, Leo! Flow with this energy without judgment. In the last little while, Lions have really taken stock of their habits and are on the course of implementing some new ones. Drop those that don’t serve you. Some free time has opened up for this fire sign of late. It’s okay to lollygag a little bit at first, but do plan to spend this bit of extra time in a pursuit close to your big heart. Seek out advice from elders at this time. Congratulate yourself on a job well done. If no one else cares to toot your horn, be willing to step up and do that for yourself. Virgo (August 23– September 22) It’s time to “fall back” on the 5th, and Virgos couldn’t be more shook about it. The timings do take some adjustments to get used to, but don’t let this completely throw you off course. Seek solace in the full moon this month. Something in the way of property may be coming up for earth signs this month. If Virgos are involved in a sale of land or home of late, rest assured that all will go well. Virgos are happiest when their tummies are full, but this month has this earth sign feeling a bit health-conscious. Go with the flow! Libra (September 23– October 22) During the transition from fall to winter, we often turn inward. We begin to reflect on our habits of the mind and the inner obstacles that limit our growth. This balanced sign knows we don’t have to wait until this season to turn inward. People born under the sign of the scales are aware that in a situation of overwhelm, turning inward and calming the mind and body can put us in a healing state. Seek out those along the same journey around the 16th. It is a quiet time for remembering. Record your thoughts. Scorpio (October 23– November 21) It’s sassy Scorpio season, and this is where we pay homage to another solar return for these watery creatures. Their key phrase is “I create,” and that’s exactly what these driven folks do on the daily. The new moon swings into said sign as well on the 13th, so use this energy to move some stuck projects forward. Enjoy your special day, and the gatherings with friends and family as a result. Steadfast, sensual, and true, you intense folks make the best partners and friends—most of the time. A special gift comes your way—you may have the attention of a secret admirer. It’s time to devour a good book! Sagittarius (November 22– December 21) Archers seem to be grimly plowing ahead without realizing much joy or bliss. Life has been a bit rocky lately, but eventually every storm passes and the sun shines again. Take heed of who sticks by your side during the dark times and avoid fair-weather friends. Change is on the horizon. What is stopping this fire sign from living their best life each and every day? A new love interest towards month’s end brings new verve in the nerve. Happy birthday to late November Saggis! Sag sun season starts on the 22nd, and not a minute too soon! Capricorn (December 22– January 19) November is looking to be an all-around great month for Goats! Career-wise, things are falling into place. The Beaver Moon on the 27th is big and bright, and great for gazing at with a new love interest. Hobbies are on point and the finances are in good shape. What’s an earth sign to do with all this glory? Maintain! Keep it going, of course. Forge on with the great habits and unyielding faith in oneself, and serve as a great role model for others. A heartfelt farewell may come your way at month’s end but don’t fret—it’s not goodbye forever, but simply a “so long till next time.” Aquarius (January 20– February 18) A morning meditation is a great way to quiet the mind and banish unwanted thoughts or feelings. Be proactive in taking good care of your temple this month. Water-Bearers may find themselves preparing for the long winter ahead— whether it be tinkering with the snowblower, batch cooking some stew, or foraging for nuts, it’s never too soon to get a head start on Old Man Winter. Get out of the house and enjoy some early seasonal parties as well. This air sign doesn’t necessarily always hold the spotlight (or even want to, for that matter) but they still have the potential to attract a large group of admirers. Be your best dapper self! Pisces (February 19– March 20) The stars are aligned in your favour, my fishy friends. You are a dreamer, and now, your dreams will be more vivid than ever before. You will find yourself lost in a world of fantasy and imagination, where anything is possible. Your intuition will guide you through the day, and you will be able to see things that others cannot. Trust your instincts, and let them lead you to new and exciting places. Take this opportunity to snuggle up with a good book or a warm blanket, and let yourself be enveloped in the cosy embrace of your surroundings. Enjoy a good mug of hot chocolate!
