RISE LIKE A PHOENIX: November 1st – 7th
Happy new year, witches!
The festival of darkness is over and now we are allowed to start not only the new year of witches but also Scorpio season. And all this with the healing new moon in Scorpio, which once again calls us to dive into the theme of shadow work to find our true essence.
Now it is important to be honest with yourself, to find answers not only on the outside but on the inside and to decide for yourself. Nothing less than 100%. There is no going back, only arise like a Phoenix!
MONDAY, November 1
Mercury trine Jupiter r
Sun quincunx Chiron ℞
Moon in Virgo
The new year and new week come with quite a few wonders if we are open to letting go in order to adjust for a new time. This week, however, we are allowed one thing above all: to begin the new week calmly. We are in the last days of the lunar cycle and these call for contemplation, reflection, and gratitude.
If you are in the white cycle, celebrating your period with the new moon, your body needs more rest to adjust to your personal new cycle. However, if you are celebrating your period and cleansing with the full moon, you may not need quite as much rest and have more energy.
Either way, the Moon in Virgo wants to bring clarity and so you may also use this Mo(o)nday to start with yourself, clean up and create space for new things. Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication, is also in a positive aspect to Jupiter, the planet of happiness and expansion.
If we now create order and clarity – in our external environment, our home, workplace & co, but also in our inner world, our thoughts, and feelings, the upcoming new beginning with the New Moon on November 4 will be much easier for us. It is so to speak the preparation for it.
TUESDAY, November 2
Moon enters Libra
Mercury square Pluto
The Moon moves into Libra, creating a loving and harmonious energy. We long for togetherness, fulfilling and deep conversations, and affection. If clarifying conversations need to be held, the next two days are perfect for this, because our subconscious and our soul are not set on dispute discourse, but rather on forgiveness and reconciliation. And yet it is important to be careful not to slip into old, blocking, and also dark thought patterns. Because Mercury is in a tension square to Pluto and asks us to renew old ways of thinking. Even if you have been hurt in certain situations in the past if something didn’t work out the way you wanted it to, or if you are triggered again and again in certain areas – it’s up to you how you deal with these situations and life constantly offers you chances to react differently and to take a new direction. Not taking the old route, but saying, “I’m ready to let go to explore new territory.” You may take this to heart, especially this entire week, as Mercury and Pluto continue to remain in a tension square, even if it gets a little easier with each passing day.
So focus on where you want to go, not where you came from. It is in your hands. You create your life!
WEDNESDAY, November 3
It is the calm before the new dawn. Today the moon is getting ready to move into her darkest and therefore most feminine and powerful phase. You’ll find strength primarily in engaging with yourself, your current energies, and your visions. Tomorrow, when the Sun and Moon create a New Moon in Scorpio, we may again begin a new manifestation cycle and so you can already prepare for it today. Reflect on the last four weeks and let go in gratitude for all that may now be completed and left behind. Be it projects or tasks that now want to be finished, or experiences that have fulfilled or limited you. It is now time to focus on yourself and your inner world. Maybe a conversation with your loved ones will help you again. The Libra Moon wants us to enjoy this day, take it lightly, and live through it in positive vibes. Even though the Sun in Scorpio sometimes makes us tend to become highly emotional, this year especially we may learn to take more lightness into all our inner processes.
THURSDAY, November 4
Moon moves into Scorpio New Moon at 10:15pm at 12°40` in Scorpio
Mercury square Pluto
New Mon in opposition to Uranus ℞
Today is the day. The Moon moves into deep Scorpio as early as Thursday night, joining Mars and the Sun. n doing so, she creates an intense and healing New Moon in Scorpio at 10:15 pm at 12°40′.
New moons always represent new beginnings and hold the magic of manifestation and realization. So it is also important today to deal with your boldest desires and goals, so that they may be fulfilled in the coming four weeks. Unlike usual, however, due to the overall planetary constellations of this week, letting go also wants to be practiced again (unless you have already practiced this increasingly the last few days).
Create a new moon wish ritual with crystals like smoky quartz, tourmaline, and selenite, ask the tarot cards for supporting messages, burn all your worries on small pieces of paper in a fire ritual, and write down and manifest all your wishes for the coming four weeks.
The theme of this New Moon in opposition to Uranus in Taurus is clearly the liberation from old limiting patterns and the recognition of your own essence. Your true soul and your soul task. The Universe wants you to be completely honest with yourself, to free yourself from all that has been imposed on you, that you have experienced, to come back to your origin.
Who are you really? When all masks are removed, all shells fall away and you are only with yourself and your inner world – who do you see? What are the needs of this soul? The desires? What is the task?
Allow yourself to really know and see yourself and set a wish on this very topic for the next four weeks.

FRIDAY, November 5
Sun Opposition Uranus ℞
Venus moves into Capricorn
Mercury moves into Scorpio
With the first day of the new lunar cycle, the entire planetary energy changes as well. Our love planet Venus leaves joyful Sagittarius to move into security-conscious Capricorn and the planet of the mind, Mercury leaves Libra to dwell in profound Scorpio.
After Venus was highly sexually active in Sagittarius and always ready for lusty adventures, she becomes one thing above all in grounded Capricorn: sensible and responsible. So love will be a bit more restrained and strict until January because that’s how long Venus will stay in Capricorn due to her retrograde in December. Venus in Capricorn longs for security and trust in love and also in all that we love, meaning our visions, projects, and goals would like to get more support now. After this long process of inner shadow work, retrogrades and reflections, it is now time to slowly create new structures step by step, which are adapted to our new self. In the best case you already came closer to this during yesterday’s new moon, otherwise you still have enough time today to continue to deal with this topic. Mercury in Scorpio helps you to dive passionately into your psyche to reach new insights.
WEEKEND 6. & 7. November
Moon moves into Sagittarius
Mercury Sextile Venus
Happy Weekend, Astro Star!
Right off the bat, the Moon leaves emotional Scorpio, and with the Moon in Sagittarius, we also start feeling a lot more optimistic and confident. Sagittarius makes us feel adventurous and hopeful for a weekend full of miracles because indeed the stars are in highly positive aspects, which help us to leave behind the nevertheless very intense and emotional week full of shadow work, letting go and inner change, in order to also turn the focus more outward again. This weekend wants to be celebrated and enjoyed with loved ones. The goal is not to perform, but to be. Present, in this moment. “It’s a good weekend to have a good weekend!” is the motto and this also wants to be completely enjoyed and exploited. Go outside, enjoy dinners with your friends and find the beauty in the little things in life. Our thoughts and emotions are nowadays much more easily polarized and therefore it is also easier for us to reach new insights in conversations. Especially when it comes to all the visions, thoughts, and projects that are really close to your heart. Open up and you will be rewarded!
What a turbulent week of emotions! Get into it and enjoy!
Stay magic, stay you!
