It’s November– a month of intensity, truth, and transformation. What are you committed to? This month will give you an opportunity to experience who and what you really are.
We begin the month with the most important election the U.S. has ever had. What are you doing to help create the outcome that is best for all of us?
If you’ve signed petitions or shared on social media– great! The change we need will take more than that, though. Are you willing to make phone calls, knock on doors, make signs, show up and be counted, VOTE? Because that’s what it’s going to take. The Universe is willing to help us. Are we willing to join with it and help ourselves?
Yes, we’re still dealing with powerful forces outside of our control, but the tide is turning and we must use it to our advantage. We must choose to be what we were created to be– warriors who think, act, care for, and promote what’s most beneficial for ourselves, life, and our world. John Lewis said it well, “I believe in freedom of speech, but I also believe that we have an obligation to condemn speech that is racist, bigoted, anti-Semitic, or hateful. When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.”
The hour is at hand…
And Mercury is still retrograde until November 3rd. Mars is also retrograde until November 14th. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation, and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur. If you can, please hold off on buying or leasing any big ticket items. It’s also a good idea to triple check any and all plans you make. This is an excellent time for introspection and research, as those things that are usually hidden from view, show themselves more easily during a Mercury Retrograde period. Wait until Mercury goes direct before making any big decisions. Mars rules how we take action and the actions we take, so until the 14th, be mindful of how you use your energy. And don’t let your emotions issue a check you’re not prepared to cash!
For all of us:
“Empaths did not come into this world to be victims, we came to be warriors. Be brave. Stay strong. We need all hands on deck.” Anthon St. Maarten
“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save ourselves and our world.” Abraham Lincoln December 1, 1862 in Message to Congress
“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Your ruling planet Mars is retrograde now, so this is a good time to go within and establish a conscious connection to what motivates you. As your inner world opens up and displays its gifts to you, you’re discovering a newer, stronger sense of yourself. As you consciously bring all of the parts of yourself together, you’ll access that sense of peace, power, and calmness that your soul has been craving.
EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Brilliance, intuition, and resourcefulness are your new allies at this time because the unpredictable planet Uranus is in your sign. The best way to allow them to help you is to be open, aware, and flexible in your encounters in the world. Even in the unexpected, there is a pattern to everything and the natural connections will amaze you. The change that occurs within you will set you on a more profitable course.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) As difficult as it may seem to be at this time, you will derive so much from being the communicator that you are. As such, yours is a social mission, so discover new ways to expand your horizons (and those of others) by being sociable. Seek out and discover new ways to interact with life in all of its forms. You’ll enrich your journey by discovering life in new ways, discovering new possibilities, and passing the information on to others.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Your new traveling companions are The Hermit and The World. The type of energy and wisdom they share this month is available to you now. Unlike them, though, you have the advantage of intuition to confirm your discoveries. By using these gifts well, your efforts will produce profitable results.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) You’re being prepared to lead those in your community to a more profound place of enlightenment. This month, you’ll attract powerful help from the Universe if you take (for you) the unusual path of being low-key. This unusual path will help you listen to Source and understand your world more comprehensively as you “walk a mile in other’s moccasins.”
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) You, The Chariot, and The World are all sharing in a life changing set of adventures this month. The successes you each achieve will pay off for many months to come. Fortunately, the forces of the Universe are working with you, so go for what you want. Help from unexpected sources will assist you– remember to call on it and of course, express gratitude.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Your natural empathy is getting a boost from the world’s need to balance itself and re-establish compassionate order. Use the passion of these tumultuous times as you heed the call. Your ability to productively act in the moment is real and powerful. Pay attention to your intuition and move decisively.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) People notice you and many of them are looking to you for leadership. Your charisma is at an all-time high and, properly used, can attract life-changing energy and powerful help. It’s a big responsibility, and the Universe is standing by to assist you. Remember to express gratitude for your gifts and opportunities.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) What others (or even you) may see as flightiness is really you giving creative energy to the possibilities that are available to you now. Ignore the judgements of others. Be true to yourself and your dreams. After all, every modern advancement came about because someone refused to “be serious.” You’re receiving massive downloads of information– please keep good notes. Help will come from unexpected sources.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) You, The Chariot, and The Hermit are pooling your energy and resources and amazing things are happening! You’re feeling more sure of yourself and trusting your connection to source. The learning process has been intense, and you’ve taken the opportunity to grow and step into your own power. The wisdom and balance that eluded you in the past are yours now. You’re being guided by Providence and gifted with trust, faith, and belief in the miracles of life.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Uranus is your ruling planet and it’s brought you into a powerful alliance with The Empress. Your message is similar to hers– brilliance, intuition, and manifestation are your new allies at this time. The best way to allow them to help you is to be open, aware, and flexible in your encounters in the world. Even in the unexpected, there is a pattern to everything and the natural connections will amaze you. The change that occurs within you will set you on a more liberating course.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) This is a time of opportunity. The luck and assistance you’ve been hoping for have arrived. Your transformation from the caterpillar to the butterfly is almost complete. Be aware of all of the possibilities that are presenting themselves to you and commit to taking advantage of them. You’re meeting all kinds of “helpful” people now. They want to aid you, so by all means, do enlist them to help you make your dreams come true.
