Monday 9th November – Sunday 15th November 2015
A New Moon, on Thursday, in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio, which will dredge up a lot of emotional stuff we have been concealing, but it will be all for the best, as the New Moon denotes a new start and a different look at things. Thursday also brings a change of venue for mighty Mars, a planet much in the news lately. Mars is leaving Virgo (where he had us connecting with nature and sorting out business matters) and is transiting into the gentle Air sign of Libra. Here he is not very comfortable, as he is in Detriment, opposite his own sign of Aries. However, here he may give new impetus to romantic relationships – and also to lawsuits.
ARIES : CARDINAL FIRE ( 21 March – 20 April)
Your ruling planet, fiery Mars, is on the move. For the past seven weeks, he’s been insisting you attend to your work and cover a mass of tasks in great detail. He has also been bringing your attention to your health – and that of someone close to you – and you’ve been looking at a variety of remedies to cure what ails you. Now, however, he slips into Libra, your opposite sign. This may bring some complaints to the surface or it may cause you to take positive action in a close relationship. It will certainly make you express what is on your mind.
TAURUS : FIXED EARTH (21 April – 21 May)
You will be airing your innermost thoughts to someone close to you, with the help of the New Moon in Scorpio, but it will clear the air nicely, even if people are rather surprised by what you have been keeping under your hat. You can sometimes be very passive, but with Mars sticking close to your planet, Venus, you have no choice, but to take action this week. In some cases, a particular project sees the light of day, in others, your creative flair becomes obvious to all.
GEMINI: MUTABLE AIR (22 May – 21 June)
It is certainly a week of revelations and you will be showing a whole new side to yourself, as people sit up and take notice of what you can do. You are using your imagination and your artistic talent in a major way and this feels really good. You dig deep as you begin a new project. A friendship could easily turn into a romance this week, as Mars snuggles up to Venus, but it may not be the easiest of relationships. For some, it is decision time with your significant other.
CANCER : CARDINAL WATER (22 June – 23 July)
Your social life becomes very busy this week and the New Moon will bring a special event marking a particular life transition for someone, whether this is a special birthday, an engagement, a wedding, a birth, or some other big moment. For some of you, your true feelings for someone are revealed at last. You are extremely busy at home, with many things to do. You may be working from home, plus attending to some domestic repairs. Don’t be too abrupt with family members – you will upset them!
LEO : FIXED FIRE (24 July – 23 August)
You are much taken up with your home and your family at the moment and determined to continue on your chosen path, no matter what distractions may arise. The New Moon brings some very deep and heartfelt conversations with family members or close friends and in some cases there could be a few revelations to absorb. It is all very beneficial, however. Certain matters have been held in for quite some time. Meanwhile, you are very busy in the garden, tending and beautifying your surroundings.
VIRGO : MUTABLE EARTH (24 August – 23 September)
As Mars enters your house of work and income, you become exceedingly busy and focused, but there is someone very agreeable on the spot to help you. Mars may insist you do some big spending – which you sometimes find distressing – but in this case it is essential. The New Moon sees you changing your location and somehow it all looks different, even if you are just returning home from a holiday. Maybe you have merely reached some new decisions about changes you want to implement.
LIBRA : CARDINAL AIR (24 September – 23 October)
As Mars enters your sign, you spring into action, full of new energy and vigour. Sometimes, you are inclined to let things slide, but not this week! You are very aware of things you need to do and you will be getting on with them. The New Moon brings a different look to your working life and you will get the chance to share some heartfelt thoughts and ideas with other people. Some may find your thinking a bit revolutionary, but it looks like you want to share it all with the world, regardless.
SCORPIO : FIXED WATER (24 October – 22 November)
The New Moon in your sign is very invigorating, but also quite tiring. You are exceedingly busy, you are covering a lot of ground and you are having some deep and meaningful conversations, which you love. You like to play your cards close to the chest, but this week you reveal quite a lot about yourself and you find it a great relief. You are not seeing as much of people you love as you would like. From Thursday, you may find your energy sinking a bit, but you’ll probably push on, regardless.
SAGITTARIUS : MUTABLE FIRE (23 November – 21 December)
You are concentrating on expanding your sphere of influence this year, whether this means growing your business, or travelling around the world. However, a particularly manic phase is ending this week and you are able to concentrate, instead, on having fun with people you love. You will not forget your responsibilities, however. The New Moon helps you to reveal some well-hidden thoughts and feelings and certain people are very surprised by what you say.
CAPRICORN : CARDINAL EARTH (22 December – 20 January)
The New Moon in Scorpio brings an important social event, which marks a page being turned in someone’s life, as they make some profound changes. You will make a new friend this week, someone both wise and witty. As Mars moves on to the Solar Midheaven of your chart, you are galvanised into action. All those things you knew you should be doing now receive your attention. Luckily, you have someone kind and relaxed to help you make sense of it all. You might even emerge from your self-imposed hibernation!
AQUARIUS : FIXED AIR (21 January – 19 February)
The New Moon bring an important event in your career and it is a chance to show off your artistic and creative abilities. There is no doubt you will be communicating well and you may surprise even yourself with the reception you get. Mars ceases to force you to spend money on matters that may be essential, but seem to have more to do with other people than with yourself. Now you begin instead to think about travelling, in the company of someone you love, or perhaps to visit a loved one.
PISCES : MUTABLE WATER (20 February – 20 March)
For you, the New Moon is likely to herald a trip, probably a flight, which will have a beneficial effect on you and perhaps on someone else, as well. It might be to help someone out, but it certainly improves communications between you. Some are beginning a course of study now, no matter whether you are the student or the teacher. Mars may be pushing you towards some major spending, but luckily, the money is there.
