ARIES

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 7th House of love, balance, harmony, close relationships, marriage, partnership, inter-connectedness with others, style of interaction, lovers and adversaries.)

Aries, it is time to learn how to balance force with diplomacy and fiery passion with gentle pleasure. Your preferred style is to be direct, forceful and to go after what you want. This gives you the ability to motivate and energize people, but it could also have an impact on others that sometimes puts them off. This lunar cycle gives you the chance to empathise with others and in doing so, see yourself through their eyes. This is most likely to play out in intimate relationships – in your current relationship (if you're in one) or in your pursuit of a new relationship or in the question of what you want out of close connection with others.

With a strong emphasis in Libra right now (your opposite sign), you might feel a bit like you have one hand tied behind your back and hopping on one foot with a stone in your shoe. You're operating at a bit of a disadvantage! The result can be frustration and the feeling that the Universe is not being cooperative or supportive. So, how to handle your frustration (or that of others reacting to your frustration) in ways that are empowering and grounded?

It can help to learn the differences between pro-active confrontation, reactive defensiveness and passive-aggressive manipulation. You have the chance to observe and study this in yourself and/or others over the next four weeks. Healthy empowerment can come from avoiding defiant overreaction, and instead responding with facts, calm strategy and drawing your strength from inner inspiration.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

The connections between your natal chart and the other person's chart can show which areas are being triggered and what is really happening between the two of you. This involves getting a personal reading with a professional astrologer. Understanding these issues better can give you an edge in figuring out how to work through the situation to your best advantage. Find out more about private astrology readings.

ARIES

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 2nd House of finances, income, expenses, possessions, resources, self-worth, and material security and values.)

Aries, your focus is likely to be on your assets now – not only your finances and possessions, but also your confidence, strength and charisma. Your physical vitality and emotional passion are strong and intense now. You probably have some good endurance too, if you can keep things steady and pace yourself in whatever you're doing.

On the other hand, there is a risk of your energy becoming a bit diluted or difficult to get a solid handle on. You might hold yourself to such a vision of perfection that you lapse into discouragement, and a friend or associate might play a role in this. But you have your own sense of faith, imagination and vision – what you intuitively believe is right for you. This has the power to break you out of any discouragement, confusion or perfectionism you might feel.

In order to keep your assets (all kinds) secure, you may need to resist the temptation to feel that there's never enough or that you are undeserving of what you have (or what you're trying to get). You can strengthen your sense of self by remembering that you are who you believe you are. Although you need to live in the real world, you don't have to be wholly defined by others or the roles you play in society or the "things" you need in order to survive.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

It can help to share your experiences and feelings with someone you feel comfortable with – a trusted friend, therapist, counsellor, spiritual advisor or anyone who can help you make sense of it all. A private astrology reading can give you special insight because your astrologer knows how the current transits are affecting you personally. By reaching out to someone who knows the territory of human nature, you can learn how to turn struggle into triumph and intensity into passion during this powerful time!

 

 

TAURUS

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 6th House of work and service—paid or volunteer—health and healing, analysis and organisation, and your contribution to the world.)

Taurus, it is time to find a new balance between passive and active approaches to work, health and service. That means being both busy and relaxed, forging ahead and taking time to enjoy the journey. If you are leaning a little too much to one side or the other, you have the chance now to learn ways to rebalance these areas of your life.

As an example, in terms of health, you might be overworking your fitness routine lately and need to spend some time just doing gentle stretches. Or you might be eating impulsively and need to balance that by slowing down to enjoy your food more. In terms of work, you might be burning yourself out by working too hard and need to work more cooperatively with others so that they contribute more (so that you don't have to). Or you might have the opportunity to help someone else by teaching them new skills or knowledge.

Through this year you may have been working through conflicts of interest between your home life and social life, or perhaps between your current close relationship(s) and your family's expectations, or possibly between being stuck in the past versus trying to expand your current possibilities. During this lunar cycle you are coming to a decision about how to deal with these conflicts of interest. The past is good as a foundation on which to develop new potential, so the focus must ultimately be on forward motion. This is a time when you will need to clarify that focus, envision the horizons you want to move toward, and then seek out the people who can help you get there.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

TAURUS

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 1st House of self, outer personality, appearance, vitality and self-assertion.)

This is your Full Moon, Taurus, because it is in your sign! You are likely to be focused on intimate and other close relationships, which may be unusually passionate, volatile, mysterious or deep. This is not necessarily a bad thing, although it may require your total involvement. This could involve any kind of close relationship that engages your passion (in the broadest sense of the word). For example: romantic, sexual, a business partner, close friend or even an "enemy" (we tend to invest a lot of passionate feelings in our adversaries).

The important thing is to get grounded in your sense of who you are, how you project yourself into your interactions, speaking up for your interests and priorities, and what you want from your interactions. You may find these interactions intense or just passionate; stressful or just challenging; suspicious or just intriguing; obsessive or just engaging.

It may help to remember three things. (1) You will get farther if you avoid getting stuck in automatic or compulsive reactions. Take a step back and see the broader perspective, which gives you power of choice. (2) If it seems like the energy is all coming from the other person, check to see how your own hopes, fantasies, anger or fears may be involved in subtle or hidden ways. The other person may be reflecting something in you that is being projected onto them. Recognizing and owning this gives you power of choice. (3) Aim to control the situation from your internal center, not through external force.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

It can help to share your experiences and feelings with someone you feel comfortable with – a trusted friend, therapist, counsellor, spiritual advisor or anyone who can help you make sense of it all.

GEMINI

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 5th House of identity, individuality, selfhood, children, fun, love affairs, creative self-expression and "joi de vivre.")

Gemini, it's time to decide who you really are – yes, ALL the different parts of you – and to create a helpful cooperation between those parts. This is essentially about bringing your duality into better balance – active versus passive, aggressive versus cooperative, doing versus being, and forceful persuasion versus strategic influence.

This might play out in your relationship with your children (if you have any) or in creative activities or in your self-image. In these and other areas, you may be feeling somewhat fragmented, scattered or disconnected. This is a time to build bridges between those fragments and integrate them into the whole of who you are. For example, you might be struggling in a conflict with your child, where you need to find a better balance between assertive confrontation and tolerant sensitivity. Or you might be pushing yourself (or others) too hard and need to relax and allow time for things to unfold more naturally.

There are decisions to be made that will affect your health, job or any contribution you make to the world around you. Throughout this year you've been working to solve conflicts of interest between the practical use of ideas and communication versus reaching for a more inspired understanding that goes far beyond practical application. But practicality has its limits, and to paraphrase Robert Browning, your reach needs to exceed your grasp, or what's a heaven for? So your mission in the next four weeks is to decide what you want to reach for? It shouldn't be so far that you wind up discouraged, or so near that you feel unchallenged. Decide with your heart and passion, not your caution or guilt.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

GEMINI

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 12th house of spirituality, compassion, isolation, inner focus, meditation, escapism, addiction, and universal love and beauty.)

Gemini, around this time you might feel kind of introspective, secluded or dreamy at this Full Moon. At the same time, you still have to function day-to-day. There's a lot going on deep under your surface right now. If you aren't aware of this consciously, it might come out in body language, physical symptoms or other involuntary actions.

This is a time when you may face your Shadow in areas like your work, your health, everyday routines, or making contributions to the world around you. That Shadow might look like a power struggle or other stressful conflict. It might involve putting your passion to work – for instance, taking on a project you can really sink your teeth into. Or, you might be tempted to overindulge your desires or obsessions and have to face resulting health problems. Any of these issues could push you to spend some "alone time" to get grounded and figure out how to deal with the situation.

With your ruling planet Mercury in retrograde right now, it might be necessary to redo work you thought was already finished or decided. This could be an unusually intense Mercury retrograde for you, but you also have access to some rather profound insights and observations. You have some powerful potential right now to do some deep healing or deep wounding – to yourself and others. Words and ideas have a powerful effect, so handle them carefully and wisely, like you would a very sharp knife.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

It can help to share your experiences and feelings with someone you feel comfortable with – a trusted friend, therapist, counsellor, spiritual advisor or anyone who can help you make sense of it all.

CANCER

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 4th House of family, Father (or Mother), childhood, home base, need for nurturing, security and belonging, and the past.)

Cancer, it is time to bring a better balance to your home life and relationships with family members and others in your support system – your actual family or just people you know you can turn to when you need them. Alternatively, you may be looking at your emotional support needs versus how much the needs of others take away from you getting your needs met. The question is: how to make sure there is a fair exchange of energy and support, without resorting to keeping a score card?

These issues likely have their roots in the past, when events or situations may have pushed you toward either a more assertive or compliant response to conflicts of interest. Depending on which side you typically lean toward, this can affect your response to present day situations and your feelings about how those situations get resolved. In the next four weeks you are challenged to find a better balance between aggression and passivity in your life.

For example, you may need to break free of your roots to discover the principles and beliefs that best fit your individuality, but then feel frustrated because this seems to disrupt your connection with those closest to you. You may need to find ways to win allies by helping others understand where you're coming from. Or, you might usually find it easier to cooperate with what others want in order to keep the peace. Yet, privately you might resent that your own priorities somehow get lost or dismissed. You need to find the courage and confidence to speak up for yourself, but also know that you don't have to declare war in order to do that effectively.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

CANCER

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 11th House of friends, peers, colleagues and co-workers, groups, organisations, community at large and vision of the future.)

Cancer, right now you have access to some very potent creativity and personal growth! By reaching into your depths, you have the potential to push creativity up into transformation and growth into rebirth. The catch is that in order to do that, you may have to face some difficult things in yourself that you'd rather remained hidden. But by doing that, it is possible to let go of some old baggage that has been holding you back.

Your focus may be on friends, associates and groups now. You may perceive them as allies and part of your support system. Or, you might feel confronted by them or engaged in a power struggle somehow. Or perhaps you are in a struggle with your children, challenging you to figure out how to maintain a steady position without resorting to "because I said so!"

You'll need to be well-grounded now, to understand how to create a workable balance of power and how to sort through the jungle of who to trust. Taking the high road according to your principles (even if that seems unconventional) can guide you through and help you keep your attitudes steady and realistic. On the other hand, you might have to look deep inside and be honest with yourself about underlying motives, biases, impulses and desires. This could lead you to hidden spiritual treasure that brings healing and purification to whatever you carry inside that old baggage.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

It can help to share your experiences and feelings with someone you feel comfortable with – a trusted friend, therapist, counsellor, spiritual advisor or anyone who can help you make sense of it all.

LEO

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 3rd House of intellect, communication, ideas, perceptions, learning, neighbours, commerce, short-distance travel, and information exchange.)

Leo, it is time to learn the art of persuasion that neither coerces nor manipulates, but strikes a balance between your own interests and the needs of others. This can be tricky territory because it may be easy to confuse the two. For example, if you don't truly believe you're entitled to get what you want, you might compensate by being more accommodating toward others than you really want to be and then wind up resenting the other person for it.

You are challenge to find a better balance between assertiveness and passivity. You may have to choose between pro-actively going after what you want or re-actively trying to manipulate the other person to get what you want. This is reflected in your style of communication and the mindset through which you view the situation (tolerant or suspicious, confident or defensive, etc.). The trick is that there is a case to be made for both approaches, so it's important to find a way to embrace the advantages of one without dismissing the other.

Some of this has roots in a struggle you've been going through all year regarding how to resolve a conflict of interest between your own priorities and those of your family, or perhaps between the need to feel confidence and the reality that no one is ever right all the time. It's time to make a decision about how you're going to handle this. The truth is that as important as it is to be humble and grounded, you can't let this suffocate your self-acceptance or your dreams. So, over the next four weeks, you are challenged to decide how to balance these two areas.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

The connections between your natal chart and the other person's chart can show which areas are being triggered and what is really happening between the two of you.

LEO

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 10th House of career, goals, ambitions, authority, public recognition, Mother (or Father), social reputation and roles in society.)

Leo, it's time to "take out the garbage" that has been hanging around for a long time. This might involve literally clearing out cluttered spaces in your home, or you might need to let go of old emotional baggage that has its roots in the past. This is a time when you may need to unearth old grudges and find ways to let them go. Or, you might be trying to bring peace and stability to the power struggles in your family. Or perhaps you are inspired to bring out your creative passion.

Whatever way this Full Moon manifests in your life, you are challenged to take a stand that reflects stability, patience and maturity. Otherwise, you might be tempted to respond with stubbornness, possessiveness or caution. This might be a reaction to ambiguity, deception or disappointment in your relationships or interactions with others. As a result, you might feel suspicious or guarded.

This could also be a time when you are involved in parental issues – your own parents, or others who are parent figures, or yourself as a parent or support person. You might be dealing with confrontations and trying to figure out how to control the situation without using a stranglehold. You can find liberating ways to empower yourself by taking a detached stance and addressing the bigger picture, rather than getting stuck in trying to control the immediate situation. This can help you get more stabilized and grounded, which will give you far more genuine command and authority.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

It can help to share your experiences and feelings with someone you feel comfortable with – a trusted friend, therapist, counsellor, spiritual advisor or anyone who can help you make sense of it all. A private astrology reading can give you special insight because your astrologer knows how the current transits are affecting you personally. By reaching out to someone who knows the territory of human nature, you can learn how to turn struggle into triumph and intensity into passion during this powerful time!

 

 

VIRGO

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 2nd House of finances, income, expenses, possessions, resources, self-worth, and material security and values.)

Virgo, it is time to balance your budget! This might happen literally, where you need to find a way to match your spending with your income. Or it might be more symbolic in the sense of balancing what you want with what you have. More specifically, this is about embracing a duality in yourself – assertive versus accepting, controlling versus accommodating, pursuing possibilities versus working with the reality that's in front of you, etc.

You have choices and decisions to make over the next couple of months, starting with how best to acquire and use the resources you need, whether you need them for future possibilities or the here-and-now necessities. How much should you pro-actively go after what you need, and how much should you set some magnetic magic in motion and wait for it to come to you? This applies to many possible areas of life – relationships, finances, credibility in the eyes of others, how you treat people who are allies and resources, or even the ideas you have that could be developed into something more concrete.

What is needed is to find a way to embrace both, making sure you don't favour one and disregard the other. For example, watch for subtle signs that you might be starting to treat people as commodities instead of allies. Or, check to see if you might be making too many assumptions about things that require a more fact-based approach (like finances or your job). This is a chance to reach a more meaningful understanding of these areas and their potential, while avoiding the urge to strip that potential down to utilitarian basics.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

LIBRA

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 1st House of self, outer personality, appearance, vitality and self-assertion.)

This is your New Moon, Libra, since it takes place in your sign! It is time to bring together both your diplomatic, accommodating side and your assertive, direct side. This is a very powerful time for you! And you have the ability to accomplish much during this lunar cycle.

Your Libra nature is typically ready to work easily with others, to make allowances for their quirks and shortcomings, and sometimes to give in a little too easily to the pressure of others. However, you also have a side that can push back and tilt the scales the other way, to create a fairer, more just balance of energy. That side of you may sometimes be more passive-aggressive or manipulative than direct, in the way it tries to strike that balance. For the next for weeks, you are challenged to use the art of persuasion in a way that is neither manipulative nor coercive; being neither placating nor charming to the point of insincere.

Criticism about credibility or opinions could be exchanged during this time with friends or associates. Some of this might focus on spending habits or attitudes about how resources and assets are managed. Those resources could be either literal (finances, possessions) or figurative (knowledge, beliefs). During this lunar cycle, you have some decisions to make in these areas that will allow you to move forward in a way that balances hope with realism and opinions with facts.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

The connections between your natal chart and the other person's chart can show which areas are being triggered and what is really happening between the two of you.

LIBRA

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 8th House of power, empowerment, control, intensity, deep psychology, transformation, death/rebirth, the occult, secrets and resources from other people.)

Libra, it is time to figure out where the boundaries lie between you and others, between your own resources and the assets you share with others, and between your personal power and the control you gain through negotiations with others. This may emerge initially as conflicts or problems related to money, possessions or material resources.

You might feel the pressure or expectations from other people, which may be disappointing, confusing or discouraging. Or, you could be weighing your accomplishments against what you had hoped you would have achieved by now in your life, and be unhappy with what you see. On the other hand, you could be motivated to amass the funds and resources necessary to manifest a creative project or vision, perhaps with the help of friends, associates or supportive agencies.

However this plays out in your life, the underlying issues are essentially about how much you believe in your own authority, resourcefulness and strength, versus how much you look to others to grant you those qualities. You'll probably need to be more aggressive than passive in your negotiations with others. Pay special attention to what is (or isn't) said in between the words. Your perceptions and ideas will take time to fully come together, so give yourself until later in the month before committing yourself to final action.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

It can help to share your experiences and feelings with someone you feel comfortable with – a trusted friend, therapist, counsellor, spiritual advisor or anyone who can help you make sense of it all. A private astrology reading can give you special insight because your astrologer knows how the current transits are affecting you personally. By reaching out to someone who knows the territory of human nature, you can learn how to turn struggle into triumph and intensity into passion during this powerful time!

 

 

SCORPIO

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 12th house of spirituality, compassion, solitude, privacy, alone time, inner focus, meditation, escapism, addiction, and universal love and beauty.)

Scorpio, this is an exciting time for you! Although the current New Moon is in Libra, by the end of October and through most of November, almost half the solar system will be marching through your sign. We haven't had this many planets in Scorpio at one time since 1978! This brings you deep into your native Scorpio energy, bringing out the extremes of both good and bad traits. For more information about this planetary collection, see The Low-Down on the Far-Out.

In the meantime, the New Moon cycle in Libra brings a subtle rebalancing of energies going on under the surface of your life right now. You may feel like you're operating at a disadvantage for a while, but there are benefits that may not be initially apparent. The point is to embrace both your aggressive and accommodating sides – the part of you that wants to control things from behind the scenes and the part that secretly longs to surrender to peace and harmony. This lunar cycle is about bridging the gap between these extremes.

This could play out spiritually, trying to decide whether you want to actively pursue a connection to something greater than yourself, or to go with the flow and see where it leads you. You might need to spend some time alone or in meditation. Or, you may be feeling isolated and want to reach out to connect with others, but not sure how to do that – through active pursuit or by creating some magnetic magic in the hope that the right people will find their way to you.

Through this year, you have been striving to develop your career or important life goals. At the same time, you've been working on expanding your self-confidence, self-promotion and spiritual wisdom, and these areas have sometimes been in conflict. In the next four weeks, it will be time to make some concrete choices about how to bring these two areas into productive cooperation.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

The connections between your natal chart and the other person's chart can show which areas are being triggered and what is really happening between the two of you. This involves getting a personal reading with a professional astrologer. Understanding these issues better can give you an edge in figuring out how to work through the situation to your best advantage. Find out more about private astrology readings.

SCORPIO

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 7th House of "Significant Others," relationships, partnerships, inter-connectedness with others, style of interaction, and balance.)

Scorpio, you are really in your element! With five planets in your sign right now, it may feel like the whole universe is vibrating on your wavelength. It means life around you is very intense, full of hidden undercurrents, and requires some very deep courage and stamina – perhaps even a bit overwhelming for you, Scorpio!

This Full Moon channels that intensity into your close relationships and interactions. Other people can be an anchor for you now – they can help to ground you and give you a reality check, especially when you get a bit carried away with suspicion, anger or defensiveness. Someone close to you could become a receptacle for your passion, providing a receptive, empathetic container for all that volatile energy.

This has a powerful impact on your career and ambitions, challenging you to rethink your methodology for reaching your goals. You might feel a bit cautious due to disappointment or discouragement. But your strength comes from remembering your inner resources and giving yourself credit for your successes (and not being obsessed with what you haven't yet accomplished). Give yourself until later in the month to make final decisions about how to pursue or fine-tune those goals. In the meantime, remember that your energy is extremely potent right now, and a little goes a long way. Expressions of anger, assertiveness, passion and determination could come across as more intense than you intend, so use these sparingly and wisely.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

It can help to share your experiences and feelings with someone you feel comfortable with – a trusted friend, therapist, counsellor, spiritual advisor or anyone who can help you make sense of it all. A private astrology reading can give you special insight because your astrologer knows how the current transits are affecting you personally.

SAGITTARIUS

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 11th House of friends, peers, colleagues, associates, co-workers, groups, organisations, community at large, and vision and hopes for the future.)

Sagittarius, it is time to evaluate your involvement with groups, friends and associates. There are new bridges to be built, not only between yourself and others but also joining together other people who could be resources to each other. In fact you could be the common ground that bridges the gap between other people. This lunar cycle could be a busy time of networking with others, making new social contacts and generating new connections between others.

You may have the opportunity to bring together people, groups, situations and ideologies that seem to contradict each other. For example, you might facilitate a discussion on religion that compares conventional doctrine to personal mysticism. Or, you might go to a fundraiser attended by imaginative artists and conservative lawmakers. However it plays out in your life, this energy seeks to build a bridge between the Yin and Yang aspects of whatever it touches. It is an opportunity to bring harmony and balance to conflicts of interest, discord and differences of opinion. The combined energy can be a powerful force for change and progress.

Over the last couple of months, these opposites have challenged you to question or explore your deeper understanding of how it all fits together in the Universe. You are now coming to a resolution of those questions. There are choices and decisions to make about what you want to do with the answers and knowledge you've collected. Answers that seem to impose expectations or limitations on your freedom are not necessarily bad, since this can lead to a rebirth at the end of November.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

SAGITTARIUS

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 6th House of work and service, paid or volunteer, health and healing, analysis and organisation, and your contribution to the world.)

Sagittarius, this is a very sacred and special time for you. There is so much going on below the surface that it may be difficult to know what is really going on. And you are picking up on a lot of it, probably at least as much on an unconscious level as consciously. Words of deep truth may come flying out of your mouth, and you are hearing it for the first time as much as the other person. So listen carefully to whatever you say – there is likely a subtle message there for you. Body language, voice inflections, parallels and patterns all provide intuitive clues that speak to you through insinuation.

You now have the opportunity to put your powerful intuition to work in practical, methodical ways. This is important because you are about to experience a major shift from late November until the end of the year toward great strength and inspiration. This Full Moon gives you the chance to get grounded. Before you can move out of the shadows and into the light, you must first know what that shadow is made of. That is what you are facing now.

So... What do you sense deep in your shadowy depths? Morbid imagination? Volatile suspicion? Secret beliefs that embrace the "dark side" more than you would like to admit? Start by shining a light into those shadows to acknowledge and reclaim what is there. Then you can gradually start to bring them out into the light over the next couple of months.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

CAPRICORN

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 10th House of career, goals, ambitions, authority, public recognition, Mother (or Father), social reputation and roles in society.)

Capricorn, it is time to manifest the next stage of your goals by bringing together components that do not fit together easily. This may involve your career, ambitions, authority figures (including yourself), or any long-term undertaking. Any goal, project or position requires both adequate resources and decisive action, and each depends on the other to make the end result happen. Right now both are available, but it may require some careful strategy to combine them in productive ways.

You could become stymied by indecision, or inhibited by concerns that your actions are not the right ones, or worried that your power in the situation is blunted. The people you're dealing with might be pulling in different directions, each with their own valid point of view. Your caution and hesitation may be a reaction to ambiguity – you might be trying to over-analyze or over-simplify a situation that is more fluid, obscure or complex than you realise.

This is a time to build a bridge between conflicting or inconsistent aspects of your situation, which is not the same as expecting everything or everyone to conform to a particular standard. All year you've been wrestling with a conflict between expanding into new territory versus building on the familiar. This is coming to a conclusion over the next four weeks. It is important to negotiate a balance with the opposing sides, so that one is not validated at the expense of the other. The differences aren't likely to disappear completely, so the solution must build a bridge between them, to find a common ground and ways they can work together in peace and harmony.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

CAPRICORN

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 5th House of identity, individuality, selfhood, children, fun, love affairs, creative self-expression and joi de vivre.)

Capricorn, your social life may feel a little intense these days. Friends, acquaintances, associates and groups you are involved with may be a source of deep passion or angst. Children might also be involved in this dynamic. At its best, this experience could be highly motivating and cathartic. You may be inspired by others to use your passionate ambition to further your favourite cause. You are challenged to follow a methodical plan that reflects your creativity and then take things one step at a time.

On the other hand, other people or groups or even your own vision of the future could be a source of conflict, jealousy or obsession. You own efforts might seem too meagre or unsophisticated, or perhaps at risk of being overwhelmed by the demands of society. Your resources to accomplish your goals might not be as solid or reliable as you had hoped, forcing you to turn to others for supplemental backing. This could feel rather disappointing or undignified, but there is strength in knowing that by going against your usual grain, you can expand your vision and possibilities in ways that might surprise you.

Technology might be a focus for both productivity and frustration. Make sure you have reliable backups of your computer files, for example, before making any significant changes. On the other hand, technology can provide a creative outlet for all that intensity and passion. Be sure to write down your ideas – especially the more eccentric ones. They could provide great "seed inspiration" later.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

AQUARIUS

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 9th House of spirituality, beliefs, truth-seeking, justice, philosophy, knowledge, teaching/learning, publishing, long-distance travel, foreign lands and languages, and multiculturalism.)

Aquarius, it is time to find a new balance between conflicts of interest involving ideas, philosophies, viewpoints and ideologies. You could be questioning whether to take an active or passive approach to problems in your career, goals, close relationships or spiritual direction. Or, you might be interacting with people whose opinions and philosophies don't quite fit your own.

However this plays out in your life, this is about finding ways to bring connection, balance and harmony to diverging energies. For instance, you may be exploring the ethics, principles and meaning of how you can take aggressive, concise action in a way that is cooperative, fair and amiable. Or, you might be mediating a negotiation between people whose perspectives are worlds apart. Your own ideologies and ideals need to be brought into a flexible but stable balance.

This year you have been caught between the desire for freedom and expansion on one hand, and the necessity for stability, structure and boundaries on the other. Both approaches have validity and it will probably work best to avoid embracing one at the expense of the other. However, it may help to give a bit of special consideration to guidelines over rules and to growth-oriented potential over final conclusions. This struggle is reaching a resolution point in the coming few weeks, and there are decisions to be made that will affect your direction of growth.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

AQUARIUS

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 4th House of family, Father (or Mother), childhood, home base, need for nurturing, security and belonging, and the past.)

Aquarius, it's time to manifest your drives, ambitions, goals and dreams! You're largely focused on where you're going, but you need a good "rudder" – something to keep you in balance and on course. Reclaiming your past can provide valuable continuity between where you've been and where you're going. You might feel like you're being dragged back into the past, but that's not necessarily a setback – it's the Universe's way of saying you need balance.

You need to ground yourself financially, physically and emotionally. You may be caught up in a vision of what you want to happen, but not see the reality of what's involved to make it happen. Interaction with others might make you feel like you're running into a brick wall, but don't miss the gift this brings you. If you can stand up to disappointment, perfectionism, high expectations or the simplicity of ordinariness, you can open a door to manifest your passion and vision more than you realise.

The coming months can be very creative and inspiring. First you will need to strike a healthy balance between surrender and conformity (neither of which may appeal to you) but there are reasons why this is important. Right now you are challenged to face your shadow – the parts of yourself that you prefer to avoid or let others live out for you (especially authority figures). Perhaps you secretly long to conform with the herd because you need that feeling of connection. Or maybe you wish you could melt into unquestioning faith, but your questioning nature won't let you. To move forward, you need to bring all of yourself with you – even the stuff you don't want.

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.

PISCES

NEW MOON in LIBRA

October 22 to November 20, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 8th House of power, empowerment, control, intensity, deep psychology, mystery, death, rebirth, transformation and sexuality.)

Pisces, it is time to bring your intimate relationships into better balance. This could involve your current relationship (if you are in one), or any interaction others that engages your passion (in the broadest sense of the word), or your hidden or secret connection with yourself (your psychological depths). Various underlying concerns are likely to get stirred up to the surface, possibly to do with magnetic attraction, power and deep-down desires. You may need to negotiate a change in the way you share and balance these issues with other people (or even just within yourself).

It may be necessary to sacrifice a bit of what you want in order to make progress on a grander scale – a kind of strategy in which you lose a battle in order to win the war. But that doesn't mean surrendering everything and rationalizing it by telling yourself you're taking the "high road." It is just as important that you wield some assertive power now, as it is to maintain an atmosphere of give-and-take. It's all in the balance.

All year you have been struggling with how to reach toward higher principles and meaning in your life, while staying grounded in the mundane. You are reaching a resolution point about this in the next few weeks. There are choices and decisions you will need to make about how to integrate these conflicting areas. The truth is there is a common ground between them – for example, through acts of service or simple tasks that are done as part of a greater purpose, or through sharing your knowledge and wisdom in humble, down-to-earth ways.

If you are currently in a relationship, there is currently a merging of "masculine" and "feminine" energies happening in some way (or needs to happen). Regardless of whether you or your partner are male or female, this is a time of balancing initiative with accommodation and deciding who gets to lead when you're dancing – literally or figuratively!

However, this dynamic could apply to any kind of relationship – spouse or partner, parent-child, business associates, close friends, etc. This blending of Yin and Yang energies might be necessary to resolve a conflict, or it might emerge naturally through a mutual exchange of energies.

PISCES

FULL MOON in TAURUS

November 5, 2006

(Takes place in your solar 3rd House of intellect, communication, ideas, perceptions, learning, neighbours, commerce, short-distance travel, and information exchange.)

Pisces, you are in the throes of a sacred battle! Your deepest nature longs to melt into the arms of the Universe and surrender to all that it has to offer. But in order to live this out in the "real world," it is necessary to formulate a system of beliefs and principles that can guide you when that world inevitably turns out to be less than perfect. This ideology must be strong enough to fuel your most burning passion and deep enough to contain all of who you are.

For someone who would rather float blissfully on the waves of universal waters, wrestling with conscious beliefs might feel more like you're confined to a bathtub. Yet, that is what you are facing now – especially peering into the shadows beneath your sparkling surface. You might notice impulses coming up inside you that you'd rather weren't there – like rage, obsession, arrogance or the desire to control your fate. Although these might seem unbecoming to someone who aspires to be pure, there is healing when you embrace and accept all of who you are – "warts and all."

That doesn't mean giving in to urges that contradict your values, but it does mean accepting your humanness. Surprisingly, this can actually be liberating and healing because you're not using so much energy suppressing what you believe you should not feel. The purpose is to integrate these parts of yourself, not let them take over. You are about to experience a major shift toward manifesting your vision of life. And you can't build something solid unless you know what's buried underneath it. So, get digging – with joy, passion and faith in the process!

With Mercury currently retrograde in Scorpio, along with half of the rest of the solar system, you are likely seeing far deeper into yourself and others than you normally do. What you see there might not be easy to understand or accept, especially if it is unfamiliar territory. Even after Mercury goes Direct on Nov.17, you will need to integrate your observations, insights and ideas into your personal worldview.
