A bi-monthly look at what's to come for your sign courtesy of T&C's master astrologer, Katharine Merlin.

Scorpio: October 24-November 22

With stressful Mars exiting a sensitive angle of your chart this month, relax and enjoy life more fully. You are on the brink of a new phase, focused on business moves and advantageous arrangements that will lead to new success. Get the bits and pieces in place now, but be prepared to wait out delays until early December. And take heart: conundrums involving personal relationships will start to untangle after the 16th.


November 1-15: The Sun in harmony with Neptune on the 6th, which means it's time to go after new dreams. The new Moon in your sign on the 7th is also powerful go signal. Personal issues you resolve near the 9th can result in clear understandings and arrangements by the 11th—so open your heart and mind to what others have to offer.

Sagittarius: November 23-December 21

Bruce Lee

A new era is dawning for those born under the sign of the Centaur. With your optimistic and bounteous ruler, Jupiter, coming home to its own sign on the 8th, you, in turn, will be coming into your own. Until the 22nd, make every effort to scrutinize, strategize, and set the stage for endeavors that truly inspire you. And as November draws to a close, be ready to work out new arrangements and take hold of opportunities coming your way.

November 1-15: With the Sun and new Moon of the 7th in a hidden angle of your chart, you'll benefit from getting the overview and playing your hand close to your vest. You seem to be poised to make some positive moves and changes near the 11th, and with Venus turning direct on the 16th, don't hesitate to reach out to those who you sense can support you.


Capricorn: December 22-January 20

Muhammad Ali

During the first three weeks of November, the importance of expanding business and social contacts is emphasized—and the new ties you forge will prove highly fortunate. What's more, Venus' direct motion after the 16th indicates that you're coming out of a frustrating holding pattern, both professionally and emotionally. You'll see the path ahead far more clearly, and behind-the-scenes meetings and planning will provide a beacon to guide you on your way.


November 1-15: The Sun in Scorpio lights up the most outgoing and social angle of your chart; and the new Moon of the 7th is all about getting out and expanding your visions. New places, people, and possibilities promise to open up your world, and whatever occurs near the 11th is telling you to take a chance on the new and leave the past behind.

Aquarius: January 21-February 19

Virginia Woolf

Mars has been in and out of your sign since last May, and this month you appear to be springing clear of a burden or sense of urgency and taking stock. A planetary emphasis on your career angle also promises more recognition of your recent contributions, and urges you to launch an ambitious plan. November will be an action-packed month, and will finish in a way that opens your eyes to possibilities you hadn't previously considered.

November 1-15: The 6th and 7th are important days for launching plans and making your presence felt. And on the 8th, Jupiter's entrance into Sagittarius is going to brighten your prospects. Your insight into a complex situation will enable you to make canny moves near the 14th, so be ready to follow your hunch and take a risk.

Pisces: February 20-March 20

Nina Simone

With lucky Jupiter traveling to the zenith of your chart (where it will remain for a year) it's time to consider new options and expand your reach. Travel is beautifully highlighted this month, and Venus' direct motion on the 16th indicates that financial and collaborative ventures previously in limbo will finally move into an active phase. Still, be patient and adopt a wait-and-see attitude until details become crystal clear in December.

November 1-15: Flights of fancy and actual travel are both accented by the new Moon of the 7th, but it's really all about being bold and imaginative. Your patience around a tricky relationship or possible new deal are about to pay off, and whatever happens near the 12th is telling you to keep your eye on your goals. You're about to enter a very active phase.

Aries: March 21-April 20


Maya Angelou

November is the time to complete long-term projects, and then do some necessary stepping back. Getting more perspective is what it's all about, and the more you make an effort to communicate with those whose expertise and support you require, the better. Happily, with Venus coming out of a long-term tailspin on the 16th, misunderstandings and confusions in close relationships will lift away.

November 1-15: Zero in on new liaisons and financial opportunities near the 6th. Later near the 9th, get out to expand your professional and social circles. You do appear to have a rare chance to reach highly propitious agreements near the 10th, and with Mars in the most outgoing angle of your chart, it's time to take on a new cause that truly inspires you.

Taurus: April 21-May 21

New affiliations will lead you to success near the 27th.

November 1-15: Groups and new associations are accented on the 6th; and Jupiter's entrance into Sagittarius on the 8th indicates that you're entering a more fortunate period for both joint and personal finances. Advice you receive near the 11th will guide you in the right direction, and contacts at a distance will open new doors.

Gemini: May 22-June 20

Josephine Baker

This is the moment to go after new ideas and launch new plans. And get busy, because once Mercury turns tail on the 17th, others will be less focused. By mid-month, you'll be entering a particularly busy period, and in danger of trying to fly off in too many directions at once. Venus' direct motion on the 16th clears away romantic uncertainties, and Jupiter's entrance into Sagittarius adds more sparkle to close ties.

November 1-15: The first week of November is a potential turning point for you at work, so dare to go after your goals. And with bountiful Jupiter entering Sagittarius on the 8th, others will be inclined to be more supportive, generous, and good-natured. Any new arrangements you enter into near the 10th also appear to be highly favorable.

Cancer: June 21-July 22

And with blissful Venus turning direct at the very base of your solar chart, you appear to be resolving personal issues and heading into a time of greater happiness

November 1-15: The new Moon in the passionate sign of Scorpio on the 7th stirs up your emotions and urges you to follow your heart. Events near the 9th are eye-openers for matters involved with property affairs. Whatever occurs near the 12th, don't doubt that others really are on the same page with you—and be ready to shake hands on new agreements.

Leo: July 23-August 23

James Baldwin

The part of your solar chart having everything to do with family, home, and lifestyle is brilliantly accented in November. The plans you're pursuing appear to be getting you on a more secure track, and some concerns you've been harboring should lift away as the month unfolds. In fact, life will be lightening up in various ways, and you're entering a particularly upbeat period when your social life will flourish and creative projects will take off.

November 1-15: Achieving rapport is the theme on the 6th, and the new Moon of the 7th is a page-turner for your personal life. As a fiery Leo, you are going to benefit from fortune-boosting Jupiter's entrance into Sagittarius on the 8th, so think about expanding your scope—and focus on putting your stamp on a new project on the 11th. 

Virgo: August 24-September 23

Freddie Mercury

New ideas bubbling up in your brain should not be dismissed—so reach out and speak up. Others will turn out to be more receptive than you imagined. The planets are shifting this month, and it's time to do and to dare. Personally, you appear to be entering a less stressful and more fulfilling period. You shouldn't hesitate to pursue lifestyle changes that you sense will bring you greater joy. The full Moon of the 23rd draws attention to your accomplishments.

November 1-15: Near the 5th, you can heal rifts and draw closer to those who matter the most; and the new Moon of the 7th is all about connecting, getting out and about, and feeling inspired.

November 1-15: Financially, it's time to get a firmer grasp over your affairs—and the 6th is the moment to make moves. You appear to be in a good position to take some calculated risks near the 9th, and you also seem to be charming new people into your inner circle. Mars' entrance into Pisces on the 15th is the start of a busy work cycle.
