Welcome to your November 2018 Horoscope
There is some spectacular astrology behind us and ahead of us. For this month, I am going to focus on an aspect which sets the scene for you over the coming months, as one cycle ends and another is ready to commence. On the 6th of November, the lunar nodes change sign – moving backwards through the zodiac (18 months in each sign). The nodes are intersecting orbital planes, which align with the Sun and moon around the time of eclipses. The North Node represents what you are heading towards, while the South Node speaks of where you have been. In Karmic terms, this speaks of legacy material passed down generations and incarnating into your experience. The goal of your evolution as a human being is to move from South Node routinized and habitual existing and into North Node possibilities of fulfilled living through transcending the passed down legacy.
The nodes shift back into Cancer/Capricorn from Leo/Aquarius. The amazing thing is that this happens only a few minutes apart from Uranus retrograding back into Aries from Taurus. So they are in exact t-square aspect at 0 degrees and 0 minutes of the signs Taurus, Leo and Aquarius. This is huge! In the Golden Dawn tarot scheme, Uranus is associated with The Fool. Although The Tower is associated with Mars in that scheme, my feeling has always been that Uranus is more appropriate for the Tower. Uranus brings liberation like a lightning strike. His effects destroy structures no longer fit for purpose. The point is for that which was incarcerated to be released into a journey which was not possible prior to the lightning strike that destroyed the imprisoning structure. Uranus can therefore represent twin aspects of the destruction and the subsequent choice to embark on a journey not possible before.
This transition from South to North Node feels very much like the story of Rapunzel, who was locked up inside a tower in the middle of the woods, with neither stairs nor a door, and only one room and one window. In order to visit Rapunzel, her captor Dame Gothel (metaphor of the wicked stepmother) stands beneath the tower and calls out: “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair, so that I may climb thy golden stair.” After she was eventually visited by a prince, rescue proved elusive and magic had to intervene to turn everything around, after evil attempted to thwart freedom and joy, through possessiveness and control of Dame Gothel. Now, you usually get a happy ever after in fairy tales (unless you are into the likes of Oscar Wilde!) But when it comes to life, this is often not the case, much as we may crave it. It is tempting to see Uranus as the bringer of the magic on the 6th. But the reality remains that there is a choice to move from one’s experience in The Tower toward a new freedom via The Fool.
Our biggest fear comes out of leaving behind the comfort of our imposed walls, in order to roam truly free. Some of us choose the fantasy of rescue, in preference to the reality of making scary choices to enter the completely new. But such is the defining moment that you face this month. Fairy tale longing for a different life, keeps you trapped. Choosing differently and facing the unknown with courage, sets you free. Uranus is destroying the incarceration of your past, but it will be you that decides whether to embrace the freedom of an unknown destiny that awaits your conscious choosing.
Would you like a consultation?
I am now available for a limited amount of consultation work. I have 15 years experience in vocational coaching and a wealth of experience in problem solving. I use runes, tarot, astrology and augury methods to add a dimension to the analytical tools which I deploy, to produce the fullest solutions for personal transformation. If you resonate with my work, please contact Karen on firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire. Most likely I will initially request minimal information on the nature of the input/solutions you require. All the above methods could be prominent (except astrology). While I would be prepared to incorporate a little astrology it would not be the major tool used with you. I can do reports and reports mixed with voice follow-ups. Karen will be happy to assist you initially.
Many thanks. Alex ?

ARIES: An individual regularly sets themselves apart from the crowd. It is one of the things which makes us truly attractive – because we stand out. However, such amounts to a rather negative expression of the possibilities of being an Aries native, right about now. The positive expression involves killing that kind of approach to attachments and instead embracing the beauty and sheer idealism of connecting meaningfully with other selves. The caveat here is that you use discernment. The folk you are now called upon to connect with are creatives and romantics at heart. Rest assured that the next eighteen months see you rebuilding who you are, based upon integrating what all the creative impulses of recent years have taught you about taking chances. This month, speculate to accumulate.
TAURUS: Philanthropy can fairly be said to have been a hallmark of your integrity. You believe in people and all their multi-faceted potential and myriad idiosyncrasies. But now, you are called away from the whole life emphasis, which has defined you. We might add that you have had a strong tendency to ‘give your power away’ in your older emanation. No more! What old notions had you believing that giving everybody equal status, as a basis for fairness, has anything at all to do with successful living? Your subjectivity matters not a single jot to any other conscious entity, except maybe as they pen your epitaph! You have to start driving your own life for its own sake now. Torpedo all but the most basic ethics. What you desire, trumps the desire of all others. Leave their goals to them.
GEMINI: Funny that I might consider lecturing you on boundaries. But that is the upcoming motif for you to open yourself to. Human experience can get messy. Of course, as an idea, you fully understand that involvement with other people requires that you understand and respect where you and they begin and end. Whose is whose and so on and what is not yours or theirs? Nevertheless, exchange with others is not just conceptual, it is also energetic. And energy is what you need to focus on and harness properly now. Money, for example, gives us the prospect of creating traction in our world – having it provides opportunity to shift things around and configure and reconfigure. If you are invested in something static or draining, you lose potential. Ditch the ethics and discover the energetics…
CANCER: Material reality will never prove to be an adequate substitute for being true to the essence of your deeply watery nature. You may consider that your extraordinarily sensitive feelings are a liability that you would do much better to be free of. I suspect however, that such notions may stem from experiences deeply submerged in the annals of your childhood. We really require to attract learning experiences that will teach us to be able to fulfil the promise of our truest nature. Once such things become thwarted by, for example, inadequate parenting, we can begin to long for substitutes, because they feel much more fulfilling as ideas than the missing piece of ourselves we believe we will never find. Now comes your time in which you finally locate that jigsaw piece!
LEO: Your identity is not simply an idea – it is also every choice that you make as providing the foundations of your existence. What have you imagined sustains you? What have you believed will provide ultimate meaning in your life? Possibly an electrifying career, full of surprises, is what you grant the deepest meaning to. It looks like you have perhaps believed that being detached in relating to other people is the recipe for self-actualisation and freedom. What you are soon to discover is that your attachment to the details of daily existence have prevented you from exploring deeper shades of yourself. Your ideas about life and your most basic beliefs are now ripe for the kind of exploration which will torpedo your priorities, around where your deepest fulfilment will truly be realised.
VIRGO: It seems that you’ve been obsessing about work and work-related pressures for eighteen months or so. It has felt relentless, like the walls are closing in on you in the Indiana Jones movies. I’m glad to report that such obsessions are about to ease. The goal, of course, was to ensure that you explored deeper issues which were seeking attention in your psyche, but that you saw working out through work-related pressures. I’m truly unclear as to what you may have discovered, but feel assured that you are much clearer on what you wish to do now, regarding the ‘day job’. Now comes a time, where you get some nostalgic release, in terms of perhaps re-visioning what fun and pleasure actually are supposed to look like! Remember, this usually involves other people.
LIBRA: This month, your lofty ideas about community are being tested. It is wonderful having revolutionary ideas, but once involving people, such are much easier held with staunch conviction than implemented, when dealing with all the usual blockages, darkness and lack of faith that most folk carry as baggage. You, this month, face the commencement of overcoming such questions of practicality at the coal face of human nature! Be comforted though that your vision is NOT ‘pie in the sky’. This is just testing. Once your ruler squares the North and South Nodes, newly in Cancer and Capricorn (28th), you will notice the transitioning point from foundations that have been laid for an age toward the reality of care you are called to reinvigorate, emerging before your very eyes!
SCORPIO: What you look for in significant partners seems to have a very long history – related to what deficits you noticed in your opposite sex parent. It looks somewhat like you may have ‘copied’ their worst qualities and deeply desired their most pleasing attributes within a mate. It is almost as if you came to embody some of the least desirable aspects of who you saw them as, in order somehow to attract the best aspects of them within a mate. This actually reflects not so much a split within them as within you. We usually push away what we do not like and seek to draw the things we do like. But as a confused child, it sometimes feels safer to do the opposite, so that we can hope for rescue or ‘proof’ of love. But this month, it must be the pleasure of nurture you seek… and offer.
SAGITTARIUS: There are two very distinct experiences of personal growth which are available to all people. This past year it looks like you experienced the first of those and this year, from the 8th of November, you begin to experience the second. Growth as a unique individual is a prerequisite for self-actualisation – just as Abraham Maslow showed us. I trust this past year that with the North Node in your 9th house and your ruler Jupiter in your unconscious zone, you have expanded your limits both geographically and psychologically. The next eighteen months bring the fresh challenge of implementing such expansion, within the confines of deep relationship exchanges and commitments. Arguably, this type of growth is tougher but even more gratifying. So… Saddle up!
CAPRICORN: Who did you honestly believe yourself to be? When you looked deep within yourself, what did you consider to be truly honourable and valuable? Why did it always feel that said person somehow could never make a certain breakthrough into satisfying nurture, within their relationship structures? I’m sure you will be relieved that I framed all those questions in the past tense! There’s a reason for that. Over the next eighteen months you get to peek beneath the layers of how you have habitually self-sabotaged in a blind spot you could never quite figure out. Security is a wonderful thing – still, even though folk crave it, they do not wish to be smothered by it. Also, their version of security will not be from quite the same mould as yours. Bear this in mind now…
AQUARIUS: Who have you chosen to be, via morphing into a pattern which will secure acceptance from others? Aloofness and detachment are considered attractive in certain quarters. Such thinking is ably abetted by being rational, systematic and not prone to exhibiting emotionality. So we can rationalise our feelings away. While we do this, perhaps we secretly desire somebody to recognise our many qualities and see into our soul? Maybe we forlornly hope we will be appreciated for what is noticed – our staunch and dignified commitment to bearing our suffering and standing in personal fortitude. Care requires demonstrative feeling. This month, explore the roots of why this is so and indeed what the unconscious drivers have been behind you suppressing overt feelings.
PISCES: Have you ever been in the Hall of Mirrors at the funfair? It is weird that you understand that none of those distorted images are actually you and yet you cannot, in those moments, escape from those images which seem real enough. To my mind you have been trapped in a version of yourself that you love, a little like you might love a potent drug! Yet you know that said narcotic is preventing you from travelling in a straight line from where you are to where you wish to go. How can such pleasant experiences end up so frustrating? Well, you’ve worked out right enough that goals are vital for a rewarding life on terra firma. But your mission starting now is to unravel the mystery of how all the depths of you can translate from blueprint into manifestation…
