The Aries moon forms an unbalanced aspect to action planet Mars this morning, so getting out of bed when your alarm goes off could be challenging. Thanks to a harsh aspect between Luna and Venus, you might feel weighed down or like you didn’t get enough sleep last night. Try to get in some light exercise before heading to work, and avoid grabbing that extra cup of coffee. It could lead to a case of the jitters.

A harsh connection between the sun and Jupiter creates a cerebral vibe that could get the better of you, making it important that you ground yourself and focus on your breath throughout the day. Should you begin to feel overwhelmed, give yourself permission to step back and take a time-out, if only for a few minutes. Luckily, the sun receives some aid from transformative Pluto, which should help you release any unpleasant thoughts or situations that find their way to you.

Watch out for breakdowns in communication when the moon shares an off-kilter connection with communicative Mercury this afternoon. Choose your words wisely while this energy is present, and avoid getting sucked into gossip that doesn’t concern you.

As the day comes to a close, be mindful that you’re taking a proactive approach to settling in for the evening. The Aries lunar placement can sometimes lead to insomnia or restless sleep.

Today’s Sun-Jupiter square puts our focus squarely on our need to be understood. We may even feel an existential threat if we believe that we are somehow misunderstood. Any desire to move forward with something new, innovative, or ground-breaking is inherently subject to some skepticism. In this environment, we are dealing with at least some suspicion. Motivations must be examined and deception is especially untenable. There is a great deal of energy and excitement in this atmosphere but any conflict that results in arrogant or thoughtless comments may quickly derail any hope for progress and raise questions about our underlying intentions. In essence, this is a day to stay with the process and not get too far out over our skis with grand schemes and assertions.

NOV 19: FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE IN TAURUS (BEAVER MOON/FROST MOON): Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.

NOV 27: LAST QUARTER MOON IN VIRGO: Your feeling of safety is now related to order and clarity, even in emotions. You may have the need to organise everything chaotic and disorganized. Try being more tolerant and accept imperfections of life. It is better to trust life and let it run its own way, not everything must be according to our expectations.


 In Ancient Egypt, the scarab beetle was revered, for the creative magic of Scarab Beetle Spirit reminds us that we can bring forth something extraordinary seemingly out of thin air.

Whenever you let your creativity flow through you, Scarab Beetle Spirit reminds you that Spirit has given you the gift of infinite potential. You have an ally as you fashion something new or repurpose the old, for Spirit co-creates with you, channeling energy through you so that you feel replenished and vitalized as you make magic with what is at hand.

Now is a time for great optimism, for you can accomplish anything you desire and your creative endeavors will come to fruition. Miracles, opportunities, abundance, and love will appear seemingly out of nowhere as you allow Spirit to work through you and magically manifest what you need.
