With the delicate gap between lunar and solar eclipses behind us, we prepare for the next big cosmic occurrence: Saturn moving into Scorpio for the next 2.5 years.

Saturn officially moves into Scorpio on November 2nd (this week!) This is a dramatic event in many ways since Saturn is the slowest moving planet and represents our karmas and suffering. I’ll be sharing an article about this transformational Saturn cycle later this week.

Moon is waxing now. Full Moon will be in Aries on November 6th while in Bharani nakshatra. This waxing cycle is imperative for taking intentional steps forward, preparing for the ultimate clearing out of the old and and outworn in our lives. More on this in my next Full Moon Wisdom article.

Horoscopes for the Waxing Moon Cycle {October 23rd to November 6th}

*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your “Western Sign” as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.

Aries: There’s still some healing to do and some clarity to achieve with finances, creativity and desires. Extra self care is necessary as your mind may feel overwhelmed and make you feel extra sensitive. Be careful of burnout! Relationships may feel extra taxing and burdensome. Balance is imperative right now—which starts with effective and healthy boundaries. Communication becomes an important factor in your relationships in the coming weeks. Saturn shifts into your 8th house for the next 2.5 years, bringing past karmas back to you for greater balance. Diligence is required with your emotional body for this next cycle. Depression and extra sensitivity are likely. This is a transformational time for you, though it may bring some discomfort and old haunts. You are learning to go slowly and gently.

Taurus: You’re still doing some relationship clean up, some intensive healing work, and churning up old karmic dust in the process. It’s likely uncomfortable and intense, so focus on pausing and deep listening, on radical self care and relationship balance. As Saturn moves into your 7th house for the next 2.5 years, balance becomes your ultimate motto. Balance of self and relationships, and ultimately healthy boundaries, become as necessary as breathing. There will be courage involved and much transformation through changing relationships. For now, focus on keeping your dreams alive!

Gemini: You are learning what to say and what not to say, how to say what you mean, and who you can be direct with. Part of this is connected to healthy boundaries, and realizing who in your life nourishes you and who does not. The real issue is your own clarity about what brings support and vitality into your life and what does not serve your highest good. You are still conflicted about some of this. As Saturn moves to your 6th house for the next 2.5 years, you get a new chance at healing old wounds, working directly with your bad habits that are holding you back, and debts—both financial and karmic. Start now.

Cancer: Your creative mind is still ablaze. You are idea central! The past few weeks have brought a re-visiting of old projects and creative innovations. As Mercury goes direct on the 25th, your projects might move forward and gain momentum. Your heart throbs for connection and romance, but there’s imbalance still palpable. It’s your emotional body that needs a few more tweaks and healing balms. Balance is coming. Once Saturn shifts into your 5th house, you will start a cycle of great emotional awareness. It won’t come without some tears and struggles, but the transformations will be well worth it in the long run. For now, let your creativity float you.

Leo: Courage and creativity are driving forces for you right now. These should stoke your financial embers and help income, creative flow and possibility. You are hungry, ravenous almost, for nourishment of all kinds. Pick your food choices, environments and experiences wisely. Go for the highest. As Saturn shifts into your 4th house for the next 2.5 years, your home and heart go through vast transformation. The ultimate digestion and assimilation of your life takes place- with your effort. Working with your emotions directly and intentionally will be key. That willingness alone will set the tone for this cycle. Resistance to your past haunts will cause great suffering, depression and anger. Let the old wounds out of the closet and get them some fresh air.

Virgo: The foreign and unusual are on your mind. Are you obsessing? Losing focus? Unable to stay flexible? With Rahu in your head still, you need to remember your resiliency, your ability to surrender, while simultaneously thinking big and bold. Relationships are still getting restructured as you figure out what types of nourishment you need, what serves you and cultivates comfort and support. Pay close attention to the signals and signs coming to you. As Saturn shifts into your 3rd house for the next 2.5 years, a new sense of courage and creativity demands your attention and intention. The amount of courage and creativity you step into will directly correlate to how much transformation takes place for you. Be bold.

Libra: The lessons you are learning about balance are extremely karmic and necessary for your long term sustainability and well being. Balance is your ultimate mantra in life, and you’ve been getting a crash course over the past many months about what best practices are for more fluidity and flow. But you may still be missing some cosmic memos. As much as you want to rush forward and expand yourself out in the world, going slow, taking steady steps, and listening deeply are the real requirements. As Saturn shifts into your 2nd house for 2.5 years, you will learn yet again find a new balance set point. Finances, nourishment, family paradigms and emotions will play a major role in your overall well being. The loose ends you’ve missed in this last cycle, will become present and palpable .

Scorpio: There are still a lot of transformations and endings taking place for you right now. This is preparation for the coming Saturn cycle that will take place in your head for the next 2.5 years. Right now, focusing on your wisdom work, teaching, sharing, advising and mentoring, are all worthy of your time and efforts. Your actions are vital resources for your gains and losses. Take notes. What works and what doesn’t? You are the restructuring aficionado, so use your set backs to make some lemonade! As Saturn moves into your 1st house on the 2nd, your arrive into a powerful transformational cycle. It will take your courage, your desire and your willingness, but when this one is done, you will be a brand new person. Work it like Madonna and keep morphing.

Sagittarius: You are ready to charge forward, but you may be confused about how to do so. Your past is still offering many insights and much wisdom for you if you’ve been paying attention. Some balance is occurring with your past karmas and tribulations, so trust the flow of grace arriving, even if there’s discomfort and excess emotions. Work with the emotional body directly and listen to the messages this essential part of your being can offer you about your needs as you move forward. As Saturn shifts into your 12th house for the next 2.5 years, retreats, solace, and long distance journey’s will be of great benefit for you and your liberation. Start plotting your time at the ashram now.

Capricorn: In many ways you’ve already begun your preparation for the upcoming Saturn cycle. As Saturn shifts into your 11th house for the next 2.5 years, your diligence with gains and losses comes into focus. The 11th house is a plus/minus house and reminds us of polarities and the “flip side” of every gain. For you, this will be linked to your ego and past karmas that require your attention in order for self mastery. With Sun debilitated still in your career house, the old push you’re so used to has likely been giving you a run for its money. With Rahu in your 9th house, remember that your sacred needs and worldly needs must find some union in order for Nature’s support. Start walking with your ego more intentionally and notice when you over do it. Ask your ego why it demands you push so hard?

Aquarius: Your wisdom and ability to innovate are attractive offerings for others- and this will advance you. Have you noticed? It’s your ingenuity and transformational abilities that keep you progressing and moving quickly. It’s vital that you let your past inform your present and your future directions. It’s the old shadows and haunts that are vital resources for you. Pay attention to them and work with them intentionally. Transform your darkness into skilled offerings for others. Shape shift. As Saturn shifts into your career house for the next 2.5 years, your work becomes more laser focused and refined, as do your relationships. It won’t be without some hard work, but don’t discount your willingness to change; that will smooth the ride and help you surrender.

Pisces: Your pruning phase continues as old attachments get loosened and let go. There’s resistance to the changes so be looking for where you are clinging, who you are clinging to, and why. What does that person or relationship represent for you and your life and why is the attachment so strong? Your past karmas are helping you restore some sense of balance right now. You may be noticing your ego is taking a bruising right now; it’s all part of the overall need for balance in your life. Trust this process. Once Saturn shifts into your 9th house on the 2nd, a very different cycle begins for you. The challenges of the past, begin to shift into wisdom for the future. You will be working with sharing your gifts and learning about your self in the process- in a much more fulfilling way. Seek the balance that is seeking you.
