Set yourself free and shake off anything that could possible hold you back. This Month brings us the gift of growth and the strength within to grow.
Jupiter moves into Sagittarius after a year in Scorpio where he brought about a lot of endings and change! As Jupiter rules the sign of Sagittarius he is at home in this expansive fiery and creative energy.
I keep on wanting to sing the song ‘Born to be Wild’ and wild we can do with Jupiter in Sagittarius. Luckily we have Saturn in Capricorn bringing us a voice of wisdom and a structure within to be wild.
Goodness this past year with Jupiter so dark and wet in Scorpio, we have been on a journey of intensity and change. We have gone through los, in some case grievous loss. We are now ready to shed our skins of sorrow and loss enabling us to move forward with a shiny new attitude.
Jupiter actually moves into Sagittarius on the 9th of November, one of the luckiest and happiest places for Jupiter to be. He will be here for a year and whenever he transits a planet or house in your chart it will bring about an invigorating energy allowing that area of your life to work smoothly attaining the results you set out to achieve.
The house it is transiting through is the area you need to grow, look back in your life to twelve years ago, and take note of what you set out to achieve then, now you can do it even better.
On a cautious note, if it is that…be careful of what you wish for as you may get more than you actually wanted. Avoid taking on more than you can manage as this could lead to exhaustion and burn out.
I am happy to do a mini reading so you can see which area of life you need to really rock! firstname.lastname@example.org an approximate birth time is necessary, the cost is R300
As for business and commerce, it is a great time for businesses that have survived 2018 to begin to put in structures and grow. Mining and commerce are ready to start rebuilding and remodelling.
If your business has been challenged and you have survived, the bad times have ended leaving a clean slate or new page from which you can begin a new way of expanding and growing what you have.
This month is a brilliant time to set out marketing plans to explore new and exciting promotion ideas. Get ready to launch new product or venture into a new career.
Jupiter on an individual level encourages us to reach out and include more and more of the universe we live in. To take interest in our surroundings and to explore all life has on offer.
If you are thinking of emigrating, Jupiter will be in Sagittarius a sign that encourages freedom and the ability to make an informed decision as to if this is the correct decision or not.
Sadly in countries with so much poverty and uncertainty we can expect mass exodus as desperate people look for sanctuary in other countries.
A good month, yes, but, and there is always ‘a but’, Mercury will be going retrograde on the 18th of this month, in his station from the 15th. Once again in a fire sign the fire of Sagittarius can really get out of hand, it is after all the most expansive of all signs. We do need to be aware of fires or the threat of fires, if started they will spread at an exponential rate.
Mercury in Sagittarius is not well behaved at all; Mercury is in his detriment and has too much freedom to create trouble on many fronts.
Mercury relates to communication both received and given. Mercury in Sagittarius will bring about an excess of communication, form emails, to phone calls as well as visits, both welcome and unwelcome.
Whilst retrograding this could get out of hand and you will note how you need to start to restrict the intensified energy and flow of people and a very busy routine they can bring to the table.
Mercury is a social planet enjoying the company of others, whilst in Sagittarius this socialising could get out of hand and end up is impatience with others, and a daily life that seems to get out of control.
This being said, this is not a time to relax, the tempo will be too fast, so use this time to gather information. Many will find their voice; they will no longer be silent and will express their innermost thoughts. During the retrograde period just be careful of over sharing.
An increase of whistle blowers will be seen, so just be careful of what you say and to whom you share a secret…it will come out. Thoughts can be disconnected and people will be inclined to say the first thing that pops into their minds. Hold onto any grandiose ideas until the retrograde is over, which will be on the 7th of December and out of station by the 10th.
This time with Mercury in Sagittarius is a good time to gather information, to travel, to view the way you thing about life and the world in general. It is the perfect time to make plans for further studies and with Jupiter in Sagittarius what a brilliant year for study.
As per normal when we experience Mercury retrograde we need to be careful of committing to something we cannot do, or keep a careful watch out for tricksters and outright thieves.
Jealousy, unaffectionate inhibiting behaviour starts to heal as Venus starts to move into her station on the 11th November. Take time out to reflect on love and relationships, understand how to control your emotional behaviour and be ready to embrace Venus energy as she moves direct on the 17th and in normal motion by the 7th of December.
Bring balance back to your relationship with yourself and others. Venus retrogrades back into Libra beginning of November; we can actually begin to mend any discordant atmospheres with those around us, repair relationships. We even find that we are feeling needier of other as per usual, or even needy of more pleasurable pursuits.
The need to spoil yourself will be strong, but in the back of your mind remember Mercury is retrograde, so overspending on self and others can leave you with some regrets.
Control and structured energy is strong, authority figures rule and best we abide with the law. Saturn is Capricorn is very strong, in Capricorn Saturn demands that we conform to the rules and beliefs of the communities we work in. Control our behaviour and respect those that have authority over us.
Bringing discipline into our lives, be it in health, work or play can only work out to our advantage. Taking control of your spending, emotional outbursts, and opinions this month will stand you in good stead.
Jupiter is the natural ruler of our blood and liver, as he is going into an area in the zodiac he loves this is a great time to begin looking after our livers.
Fatty livers area cause of too many starches and sugars, this in turn can bring on type 2 diabetes or even heart failure. Remember it takes your liver about 20 minutes to fully digest your food or smoothie so before eating more, give you system time to digest the food. You may be surprised to find you are no longer feeling hungry and that second helping is no longer necessary.
There are some brilliant green smoothies that can help keep your liver and blood healthy and happy.
Mixing up a smoothie of all the good green ingredients is a wonderful thing for cleansing your blood. A nice effective one I found on the net consists of kale, de-stemmed (or spinach, chard etc.) English cucumber, celery, chopped. 1 small lemon, peel removed, 1 ripe banana, frozen, 1 cup pineapple (frozen), 2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1/2-1 teaspoon spirulina powder (depending on preference) If you are mixing it with banana, pineapple and any nut milks it will contain calories so treat it as a meal.
Celery is anti-carcinogenic as well as cleansing blood and controlling blood pressure, kale manages our blood sugar, spinach lowers blood pressure, cucumber will also lower your blood sugar as well as keep your blood thin and healthy and the lemon juice does so much good, promoting digestion, aiding weight loss, preventing kidney stones and promotes hydration. This mix alone is not fattening so can be added as a drink with breakfast or an in-between snack.
If you are not a smoothie fan then make this up as a snack box or salad, and remember you can mix and match.
Cheers to happy healthy blood!
