WEEK OF November 7 – 1 3, 2022
Two lunges forward, one squat back? Beautifying (yet comfort-loving) Venus in Scorpio is grapevining through your health zone, sending you mixed messages like “go do cardio” and “let’s order pizza”—simultaneously! Complicating things further? On Monday, November 7, the radiant planet swings into a discombobulating square with disciplined Saturn in your no-limits ninth house. Rather than shoot for “perfection,” aim for the 80-20 rule, where you follow your set intentions 80 percent of the time and allow yourself to “slip” the rest. And be sure to enjoy those indulgences 100 percent! Once you start to see and feel results (more energy, muscle tone), your motivation will strengthen!
When the year’s only Taurus full moon—also an awe-inspiring lunar eclipse—lights up your twelfth house of rest, introspection and release on Tuesday, November 8, no one will have to nudge you to unplug and cool out! Especially if you’ve been going at breakneck speed, this will be a welcome relief from the nonstop working and socializing. You might need to quell your FOMO, but some time on your own, doing what you want—when you want—will make it so much easier. If you can’t find a free window on Tuesday, open up your weekend schedule as much as possible. Today and over the next two weeks, you could get some brilliant downloads and have a creative (or spiritual) breakthrough. But you won’t appreciate it—or possibly even notice it—if you’re constantly in the company of others and on the move. Clear out as many non-obligatory items from your calendar and just go with the flow. What can you reschedule, and what can simply be X’ed off the list? Book in some preventative self-care like massages or energy-work sessions and load up on vitamin-rich food to counter the effects of last week’s Halloween candy binge.
A “double-dare-ya” prod from taskmaster Saturn to the ego-supporting Sun could get you into fighting shape, especially when it comes to your work. If your desktop icons are resembling a patchwork quilt and you’ve lost track of the purpose of the Post-It notes you slapped on the wall, you may suddenly snap and get everything organized in record time. When tough-love Saturn blasts the Sun with a dose of self-discipline, the rubber will meet the road. Show the world—or just yourself—what you’re really made of by not only carving out goals but setting up some simple-yet-effective systems for achieving them. This is what project management apps like Asana—and even Google Sheets—were made for! Set some concrete goals and create a timeline to reach them (one at a time, please). Aim for realistic adjustments that you can sustain. Build in (healthy) mini rewards for when you hit each milestone.
