As we enter the month of Scorpio, be prepared for an emotional ride. It’s a time to master the art of balancing your emotions and having your feet firmly planted on the ground. Expect to feel all lovey dovey in the first week. Things with family and relationships enter a positive cycle. It all comes together at last. You might be entering shock mode come second week when an unexpected disaster strikes. But with this happening it will be time to retreat and start over. Move out of victim mode and turn the situation into an opportunity to be creative. Pick yourself up and go for it again. There will be plenty of ideas floating around. So don’t rush into things. When it comes to making a selection on an opportunity wait it out if you feel the need to do so. The key is not to rush in the third week. Do not allow your emotions to get the better of you but instead try to stay balanced and things should come to you. It might be wiser to lose some to gain some in the final week of the month. There is no room for grey areas. It either works or it doesn’t. So if people around you don’t fit for the good of your future then it’s probably time to let go. Move things along realistically and stop daydreaming. You will have to work and removing both internal and external obstacles.
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You choose to simplify things this November. Being the month of Scorpio you decide to accentuate the emotional and the compassionate side of yourself. Returning to the naivety you displayed when you were young would be a good starting point. You can never ever feel like you know everything there is to know so returning to a time when you were thirsty to learn would probably lead you to rediscover your passion in life. It is also far easier to form connections with people if you set aside your arrogance and begin to listen to others and learn. Thinking with your heart will help you to empathise and work towards building an understanding and compassionate environment. Treat others how you would like to be treated is the motto to live by for the month!
Year Ahead (November 2017 – October 2018)
It is a year where the emphasis will be to focus on your long-term goals. Events will take place every now and then to steer you off course but it is your job to accept challenges as they come and to keep your vision fixed on your final outcome. The first quarter kickstarts with a disappointment in a career choice or business venture. Your past enterprising efforts aren’t unfolding like how you would have liked them to but it will soon become clear that you had rushed into things a bit too quickly. Take this disappointment as something to learn from rather than something to dwell on. It might be a wise idea to revisit a time or place in your past that made you happy in the second quarter. This would provide some sort of inspiration for the next chapter or phase of your life. You are moving away from materialism and will be combining emotional fulfilment with what you do for work. Good news is to be expected within the family this quarter as well! A challenging third quarter awaits, be prepared to be faced with disagreements from people around you. It might be wise to walk away instead of fighting to provide reasons for your stand. Stagnation takes over too as a result of resistance from people around you. Accept it as a phase of challenges and it will soon pass with the final quarter presenting a very eventful end to the year. Your plans take off with your perseverance and positive attitude and you struggle to find quality time with family. A good problem to have in a way but remember to take time off when you need to prevent burnout.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
A warning to keep on your toes this month! Just when everything finally comes together and opportunities are abundant things could go completely wrong. So don’t get ahead of yourself. Take small steps at a time and be watchful with each step. Being meticulous will reward you well. Facing calamity might be inevitable this month, but taking extra precaution will help with easing the stress when it does happen. Be prepared to make very difficult decisions. You may not be the flavour of the month after this but it’s part and parcel of the journey and just one other thing to take in your stride.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
It is an excellent month to manifest your dreams and goals in your business ventures. You will find creative solutions to your problems with your networks, existing knowledge and even discover new ways to turn your ideas into concrete plans. It all begins with your dreams and aspirations. These may come in the form of signs through people you meet, places you go to or even your dreams. Just trust your intuition this month and you will be guided in the direction that you should be. A word of caution is to work within your means and not to dream too far ahead that it becomes out of your reach.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Things are moving upward and onward for you this month. You may be bursting with ideas and creativity but it is essential to be sharing and communicating with others to understand if your ideas are indeed feasible. It isn’t a time to rush and charge forward but rather to wait things out and to stay calm. When great ideas are formed they need to be put into action at the right time to ensure success. Stall any action for this month instead research and check over things as much as you can before you decide to go for it.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
It’s quite a strange month for Cancer this month. It might feel like you are nearly at the end of reaching your destination or goal but yet it will feel so far. It feels like a never-ending journey to get to where you want to be but at the same time you are optimistic that things are near the end and so you push on. Take pauses in between if you feel the need to. Give yourself the opportunity to reflect if something is worth pursuing. Unfortunately, you aren’t in a position where things will be laid out for you. You will need to fight the odds to get to where you want to be. It might also be a case of upsetting others in the process.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Things are going well in terms of your finances this month. You are in the place where you feel comfortable and there is no worry about big bills or investments gone awry. This opens you up to exploring life itself. Perhaps it’s time to take a look at what excites you or revisit what you are passionate about. This November, you might be taken back to a nostalgic time or place in your childhood. Take the time to listen to your inner voice. This might involve you pursuing some course that you always wanted to do or maybe even going back to playing the guitar. There will be a nice balance of material and spiritual comfort.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Change is in order this month in terms of your perspective on life. The time is right to address this feeling of being stuck and unfulfilled to get things back on track for yourself. Perhaps achieving financial wealth or reaching a certain level in society isn’t really cut out for you. It’s gets tiring trying to keep up with the joneses. You realise all you do not want to be a slave to materialism but to feel that life can still be happy without it. Begin with reassessing your priorities and work towards discovering the source of your discontentment.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You find yourself in a very giving situation this month. Strangely, you have never felt more confident and ‘together’ as you will ever be this November. I suppose all the lessons of the year have finally taught you something. You now embody both the masculine and feminine aspects to live life in the most balanced way possible. In turn, you attract people in need of your wisdom, intuition and objectivity. The sharing of your experiences with others opens up a sense of joy and fulfillment which leaves you feeling like you finally found your place in this world.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You’ve had a long-term vision and have worked very hard towards achieving it. It’s all well that you have got to a point in laying the right foundation for yourself but you are now feeling stuck as to what’s next? It might be time for expansion which hasn’t been on your radar. Look further and beyond, possibly widen your geographical boundaries or further your knowledge to better equip yourself with this expansion. It is going to take much more effort than you had expected but it will be well worth it.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
It feels like a perfect month to be in. For one, you are entering a cycle in your life where positive experiences are about to take place or will begin to unfold over the next few months. You aren’t in the mood for rushing. You realise the importance for setting the stage this month for long-term goals. So your planning is top of the agenda. You would rather act with timing and precision rather than in haste in fear of a missed opportunity. The key is to trust that inner voice and then create.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
This month you find yourself being given the opportunity to finally enjoy the fruit of your labour. You have worked hard to get to where you are now. So don’t go splurging it all at one go as well. Pace yourself. A point to note this November is to avoid emotional spending. The temptation will be very great. It’s time to start planning long-term. Set the visions and start planning how you are going to get there.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You aren’t particularly a risk taker but you are placed in a very unfamiliar situation this month. You are out of your comfort zone. Enthusiasm fills you as you embark upon a new journey this November but at the same time your fear of the unknown cripples you. You are really worrying much more than you need to. Give yourself some credit for keeping things under control. Take a deep breath and move along. Step into a new world of experiences and you will find your self-confidence slowly returning.
