Watch out for impulsive or unpredictable behavior in both you and others today as action planet Mars faces off with wild-card Uranus. Anything goes while these vibes are present, so it’s important that you brace yourself to go with the flow and avoid risky activities. Avoid pushing yourself physically right now, and be mindful of your limits.

A harsh connection between the Taurus moon and Saturn brings out your stubborn side, but you should try to remain open to advice from others if it comes from a genuine and good-hearted place.

Lean into love this evening when the moon shares a sweet connection to romantic Venus. This cosmic climate is perfect for embracing your sensual side, and it can help you reconnect with your nearest and dearest. If you feel like you need a bit of cheering up, use this energy as an excuse to spoil yourself a tiny bit, but don’t go overboard with spending.

The tension that has built up throughout the day comes to a head tonight when Luna forms an alliance with Uranus, amplifying the opposition it shares with Mars. Pent-up aggression could find its way out now. If you find yourself on the receiving end of someone else’s temper tantrum, try to defuse the situation diplomatically or you could end up in some seriously hot water.

If we can move past the suspicion, jealousy, and mistrust we will find a great deal of opportunity today. Charm, energy, and assertiveness are blended with innovative ideas, providing powerful foundational support for tangible progress. Today’s Taurus Moon offers patience, which has been hard to find when dealing with this year’s obstacles and slow progress. Such patience allows us to maintain steady effort without losing ground to disillusionment or frustration. The key to such patience involves sidestepping any nagging suspicions that others are intentionally and maliciously blocking our path. This is truly an atmosphere that shows how obstacles can present us with opportunities — if we have the right perspective.

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.


Bobcat Spirit tells you this is not a time to reveal your deepest most cherished dreams and desires to others but rather a time to be quiet and gentle with yourself as truths begin to emerge in your awareness. Self-protection is called for, so be discerning, selective, and even secretive, revealing no more than is necessary.

People have a way of imposing their opinions on you, so pay attention to whom you surround yourself with at this time. Be watchful and check your own motives as well as those of others as you keep your secrets to yourself for now rather than expose them to those who may potentially misunderstand your intentions or may not be supportive. Let your logical mind take a rest as you start to perceive the energy of your environment.

Bobcat Spirit wants you to be stealthy and wise, and keep your own counsel. Let yourself be a mystery yet to be revealed.
