Hello November. Got a minute? We need to talk about how fast the year has flown by.
Aries Mar 21-Apr 19
We know you’re all about dropping it like it’s hot and hightailing it sweet fiery Aries, but it’s Mercury retrograde season until the 20th baby. It might be time to snap out of that tunnel vision and stop avoiding the past. Instead of booking a flight away from that person / thing / situation, why not book a flight towards he / she / it / them / what?
Taurus Apr 20-May 20
Things could get Instagram official this month Taurus! Could. If you play your cards right that is. Sure, the Sun is travelling through your commitment zones highlighting all that is warm and groovy but the tricksy little Mercury’s got his heart set on throwing a wrench in your la-la-land. Instead of pulling a bull and charging straight ahead with your horns before you, how about a romantic getaway? Then “subtly” bombard your feed with pics of the two of you.
Gemini May 21-June 20
Gemini take the wheel! Your ruling planet, Mr. Communication himself is retrograde until the 20th so instead of zipping in a million directions and bluffing your way through like you’re usually so very good at, how about taking a moment to plan things out for once? You may just avoid that power-tripping flat-earther that’s been trying to corner you to evangelise.
Cancer June 21-July 22
Dear over-the-top Cancer, the Sun is in your flamboyant fifth house of creativity and self-expression for most of this month. And that’s lovely but guess what, not everything is about you. Would it really kill you to ask how others are doing instead of treating them as your therapist? Quit making Everest out of a molehill and actually book that trip to base camp already. Thank us later.
Leo July 23-Aug 22
Holiday season is around the corner. You’re usually well-planned by this stage so we’re guessing you haven’t booked your flights or accommodation yet because you’re shacking up with someone you met on Tinder and aren’t sure if it’s time to make introductions to the fam and friends or not. Well, Mercury is in reverse for most of the month so put yourself first Leo. Let them decide for themselves where they want to place in your life.
Virgo Aug 23-Sep 22
Uh oh, Mercury’s got you speaking in code this month Virgo, your ruling planet’s gone rogue for the first three weeks of November. We know it’s not usual for you to feel insecure or fragile and to be honest, we’re feeling a little anxious along with you. We seriously recommend that you consider packing your bags for a spiritual retreat on a sunny tropical isle. It’s a way better option than falling into a self-loathing cycle for actually having human emotions.
Libra Sep 23-Oct 22
Where have you been Libra? We’re all about getting away for the holidays but you’ve been MIA for so long you just need to come home to where your foundation is the strongest. Or is that the trickster planet trying to manipulate your heartstrings with emotional bait. Think you can find it in you to trust your instincts and not consider every option for once? You just might survive the month if you do.
Scorpio Oct 23-Nov 21
Get used to being misunderstood or having to over-explain yourself more than usual this Mercury retrograde Scorpio. It’s not you, it’s everyone else being driven mad. You could keep a low-profile and play up your mysterious reputation, or head out to sea for some time alone surfing the waves. Whatever you choose, limber up, there are some crazy curveballs coming your way. And on your birthday too! Ugh.
Sagittarius Nov 22-Dec 21
#feelandflow. You should paste that all over your social media this month dear Sagi. You’re a lucky little sharpshooter and you know it – your circuit boards are up and running, you’re lighting up with ideas. But, the team might be a little slower than you’d like on the uptake. If it gets too challenging to keep from strangling them, head over to the airport (or train station) and get the last available ticket to anywhere, it’s time to play hooky!
Capricorn Dec 22-Jan 19
Pace yourself Cap! Or flip the script and take control. You may find yourself swinging like a pendulum this month. Try a little meditation to centre your om. If that fails, invite that cutie you’ve been hanging out with over for dinner and surprise them instead by camping out under the stars for some romantic root chakra activation. Oh go on, what’s wrong with being clear about what you want?
Aquarius Jan 20-Feb 18
Look out Aquarius, Mercury’s out to undermine you! The tricky little transit of the next three weeks wants to wreak havoc and unravel that trip you’re taking this month. But you’re probably two steps ahead aren’t you? You’ve probably already got your worst case scenario planned out and in motion. Still, we recommend a little extra vigilance. After all, you’re already a unique snowflake on a good Mercury day.
Pisces Feb 19-Mar 20
Okay Pisces, you win. The retrograde’s gone straight to your head and you’re ready to shout from the rooftops but before you do, you might want to triple check the Airbnb booking you made last month. You know, just in case some wires have gotten crossed under the current star-scape. There’s nothing worse than showing up somewhere that didn’t know you were going.
