Monthly Forecast for November 2018

Ready for one of the most momentous astrological months of the year? 💫

There are SO many major planetary shifts and changes coming in this month that are starting to usher us into 2019, giving us a sneak peek at what is to come as we are flooded with a fresh burst of new energy that will be undeniably palpable.

First off, the Sun continues swimming through the darker waters of  ♏️ Scorpio – the sign of shadow work, endings, release, and emotional introspection – until November 22. During this time, we are meant to be re-evaluating our lives by looking at everything we are doing in our life & career from a bird’s eye perspective to get to the core of what feels off!

A New Moon in Scorpio on November 7th will be the ideal time to set your intentions around where in your life & career you are ready to transform to the next level, and a positive angle between Jupiter and the North Node of Future Destiny makes this an especially auspicious time to get out of your own way and embrace your higher potential. ⚡️

The very next day, prosperity planet Jupiter will officially finish its run through Scorpio, where it has been for the last year, bringing fresh opportunities into a whole new area of our lives that haven’t gotten an extra dose sparkle like this in nearly 12 years, as it moves into its home sign of Sagittarius on November 8th.

As if that wasn’t enough to keep us busy, Venus Retrograde will be ending just as Mercury Retrograde begins bringing a whole new round of confusion to our plans & ideas on November 16th! Plus, the same day the Sun moves into Sagittarius, we’ll be celebrating a socially intense Full Moon in Gemini on the 22nd – a.k.a. Thanksgiving in the United States. 🦃

And would you believe that this is only half of it? 2018 is clearly not going out without a BIG BANG!

019 | Awakening to Your Soul’s Purpose with Melissa Habibi

Melissa Habibi is a lightworker, soul healer, spiritual & life coach at Child of Gaia. Here’s how she found her cosmic calling…

In this episode, I’m chatting with Melissa Habibi, a ♐️ Sagittarius with ♌️ Leo Moon and ♉️Taurus Rising, about how she uses her empathic gifts to support healers and lightworkers to awaken and manifest their Soul’s Purpose and Destiny. We also discuss what it really means to be a lightworker, how to balance the spiritual with the practical side of working towards your bigger life mission, and how to work through emotional blocks that come up along the way.

We cover:

  • How Melissa found her purpose by helping others and choosing to take conscious action by following one clue at a time
  • Why trying to find the answer in your mind is not nearly as helpful as simply getting out there and taking action to discover what feels best to you when you’re doing it
  • Why NOT knowing what your purpose is can be a sign that you are in need of soul healing to get past blocks, obstacles, fears, and emotional patterns that are holding you back
  • What it means to be a lightworker and how lightworkers can learn to work with their empathic gifts to help others without draining their energy
  • How Melissa tunes into the energy field of her clients to help them awaken to their soul’s purpose and destiny
  • How Melissa’s astrology chart reflects the unique work she does for a living
  • How she deals with nasty comments online such as Youtube being such a sensitive empathic person
  • Looking at running and growing your own business as being the ultimate spiritual journey
  • Busting the age-old myth that healers shouldn’t charge for their gifts or that they can’t make that much money
  • The importance of giving the abundance you desire an access point to come into your life through your work
  • How to stop getting stuck in your head or stuck in overwhelm and actually get things done!

018 | Astrology and Karma (North & South Nodes)

What does the question of fate vs. free will have to do with astrology? 🌙

In this episode, I’m diving deep into the idea of how we can forecast the future using astrology and still retain the power of our free will. We’re also looking at two of the most karmic points in astrology – the North Node of Future Destiny & the South Node of Past Karma – and how we can use them as a compass to determine which past patterns we are meant to grow forth from and what type of energy to adopt in order to grow into our greater potential and move our lives and careers forward faster than we could if we just stayed in our comfort zones.

We cover:

  • Why forecasting astrology is not an exact science of seeing into the future (even though it can seem that way!)
  • Looking at free will as the concept that we get to choose how we react to the things we happen in our lives
  • The idea that we most likely choose the negative things we will experience in life as we planned them before we were born
  • The dangers of using astrology as a way to live in fear and superstition
  • How the South Node of Past Karma and North Node of Future Destiny can help us understand our karmic path

Monthly Forecast for October 2018

A new month is just around the corner, and Monthly Forecast Videos are back! 💫

As we move into October, the Sun is streaming through the sign of ♎️ Libra until it moves into ♏️ Scorpio on October 23rd. This is a time to look at the energetics of your life – where are things off? Where can you add more lightness, beauty, and peace? A New Moon in Libra on October 8th will be the ideal time to set your intentions around how you would like to bring a more luxurious & harmonious feeling into your daily life and work.

However, before that, we have the very rare Venus Retrograde coming into play beginning on October 5th. This retrograde only occurs once every 18 months, and when it does, we are meant to take time to revisit our values – including money, love, beauty – which are all things that the planet Venus governs.

A Full Moon in Taurus will help us begin to close out the month on October 24th and it will present a major check-in for us to see if all of our hard work over the past 6 months has been leading us in the right direction.

Find out more about what’s in store for this month in the latest Monthly Forecast below…

Career Scopes for September 2018

With less and less retrogrades stomping on our flow, this month it’s truly time to get down to business!

For most of this month, the Sun is zooming through the zodiac sign of ♍️ Virgo, the analytical, detail-oriented, “get stuff done” sign that prefers to take a practical approach to the day-to-day tasks that need to get done to keep life moving along as efficiently as possible.

The 🌑 New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the perfect time to set an intention around how you would like to set up your weekly schedule in an ideal world, making sure to keep room in your days to have time to support yourself with all of the things you love that will also keep you grounded and sane so you’re more freed up to serve others from a filled up well.

But let’s back it up a bit! On September 6th, Saturn, the planet of discipline and responsibility finally closes out its annual retrograde pattern and begins moving direct in the sign of Capricorn. This long 4.5 month retrograde has been making things tough when it comes to figuring out how to structure your plans and gain clarity around your long-term goals. Now that it’s turning around, we can finally gain a sense of satisfaction from getting on track with where we want to go!

The month begins closing out with a 🌕 Full Moon in Aries on September 24th. Remember those seeds you planted on the astrological new year back on the New Moon in Aries on April 15th? This is the time to see them come full circle! It’s not only a time of seeing blessings blossom up to the surface to be appreciated, but also for letting go of any ideas that didn’t end up making it to harvest either because they didn’t get enough TLC or simply because it wasn’t meant to be.

How will all of these cosmic influences be affecting your life & career specifically? Find out more below…

Aries

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)

Are you in control of how you spend your time? This month, the Sun is moving through your zone of Daily Work & Wellness, helping you get organized with the day-to-day tasks that make you feel balanced and on top of your world. Last month’s crazy creative energy may have had you starting more projects than you could comfortably handle, so now is the time to scale back and prioritize what’s really the most important. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be your call to set up a schedule that will allow you to put the word “flow” back in workflow!

With Saturn Retrograde coming to a halt in your Career Zone, any creative ideas you’ve been contemplating in your work can finally begin building up steam again. One of the follies of being an Aries is having more good ideas than you know what to do with, and many of them can end up fizzling out before you’ve even had a chance to take solid action. Now, with disciplined Saturn back on your side, you can drill down and make a plan for the projects that are going to allow you to take your work the farthest and make the biggest impact on the world.

Then, as we move into the end of September, a Full Moon in your sign will be rising high in the sky! This will be an amazing time for you to see all your hard work from the past 6 months finally blossom into being. At the same time, you may become more aware of the things you are doing that are no longer 100% in alignment with the true you. This Full Moon will illuminate the difference between who you are now – and who you are no longer – so you can let go of the past and back get in tune with the beat of your own unique drum.

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

It’s time to let your creative fires burn brighter! This month, the Sun is lighting up your zone of Fun & Creativity, giving you an extra burst of energy to satisfy your inner spark and create the things you wish existed in the world. The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th will be an incredibly lucky time to set an intention to start a new project that makes you feel especially excited about life!

On September 6th, yet another planet will be backing off from being in retrograde as Saturn stops in the sky and resumes forward motion in your Education, Exploration & Self-Discovery sector. If you’ve been trying to expand your horizons in intriguing new ways, but have been getting hit with roadblock after roadblock along the way, this will bring a sweet breeze of relief to help you push onwards either through learning about a fascinating new subject, planning your next travel destination, or exploring an amazing new way to experience life.

Towards the end of the month, a Full Moon in Aries will be shining a light on your zone of Spirituality & Deep Reflection. This is one lunation that might be a bit uncomfortable as you are forced to take a deeper look at any limiting beliefs, fears, or worries that have been holding you back from living a more meaningful and purpose-driven life. However, the good news is that this Full Moon will allow you to release some of these shadows so you can stand more confidently in your light.

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

How are things going on the home front? For most of this month, the Sun is cruising through your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security, helping you ground down and get back in touch with your roots. September is a good month to do an overhaul of your living space, strengthen your bonds with family, and create a more solid plan to help you create a greater feeling of security for the future. The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th will be an especially amazing time for getting clear on what you’d like to call into this area of your life next!

Luckily, Saturn will finally be ending its annual retrograde in your 8th house of Business & Finance as well. If things have been unclear when it comes to earning or managing your money in a way that makes more sense – and that feels truly good to you on the inside – then you’ll be glad to know that clarity is on the way and you can finally get on track with a more straightforward strategy for financial success.

As this month begins to fade out, a Full Moon in Aries will be lighting up the sky on September 24th, illuminating your Friendship & Community sector as it does. This will be a good time to take stock of your friendships with others and celebrate and appreciate the like-minded people who surround you while detaching from those that no longer jive. Perhaps this will be a time when you’ll even come to realize that you could even be doing more to connect with your community and share your gifts and talents to help others on a wider scale.

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

It’s time to get out and mingle! For most of this month, the Sun is fluttering through your Social Networking sector as it brings out your inner social butterfly. Talk, speak, create, and share your ideas with others around you to gather meaningful feedback from those whose opinions you cherish. You may even consider reaching out to collaborate with someone who shares the same type of audience or target market as you do in order to double down and expand your reach together. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the ideal time to make a list of all of the people you would love to work with whether they are dream clients, customers, a teacher or mentor, potential brand ambassadors, or fellow co-creators and watch as it slowly comes true over the next 6 months.

On September 6th, Saturn will finally be stopping in the sky as it pivots out of retrograde and into direct motion in your Relationship zone. This is a big chapter of your life for re-evaluating the give and take between you and other people whether romantically or in your work. When Saturn was in retrograde, wires may have gotten crossed, but now that it’s over you can begin the process of getting on more solid ground with how you give and receive support with another in order to break free of unhealthy bonds or strengthen those that are most in need of it.

As we get into the last week of September, a Full Moon will be bringing light to your Career Zone. This is an exciting time to see the work projects you’ve been working on over the past 6 months finally come full circle! Put yourself out there and celebrate your hard-won efforts. It can be an especially lucky time for a launch or promoting yourself, however, it can also bring up any sticky spots that you would like to pay more attention to in the future, too.

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

As we move further away from Leo Season now, it’s time to jump into the thick of things! Last month was all about you re-inventing yourself, while this month the Sun is lighting up your 2nd house of Values, Desires & Goal Setting, helping you make a solid plan to receive more of the things you really want. Part of this process requires you to narrow down what you don’t want, but by the New Moon in Virgo on September 9th, you’ll want to set a solid intention around what you do. Keep in mind that the first step to attracting in the blessings you wish for is believing that you’re worthy, capable, and deserving of it.

This is a major time in your life for re-evaluating your relationship with your life & work and how you manage the balance between them including having plenty of time to take care of your precious self as part of your weekly schedule. Since Saturn Retrograde is ending in your Daily Work & Wellness sector on the 6th, you’ll finally be able to gain more clarity on the best way to set this all up so you can make a productive plan to prioritize all of the things that matter most.

With a Full Moon rising up in your fellow fire sign, Aries, on the 24th, you will be manifesting blessings into your life that will help you expand your horizons as it lights up your zone of Education, Exploration, & Self-Discovery. Perhaps it’s time to plan an exciting trip or complete a course of study that will open up new possibilities for you. Whatever you decide to do, it’s about time you shake up your status quo and open yourself up to more of the magic that exists beyond the normal confines of your comfort zone.

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

Ready to let the true you come into view? This month, the Sun is moving through your sign until September 23rd, shining a light on what makes you special and authentically you. If there are parts of yourself you’ve been hiding or holding back, it’s time to embrace your whole self and find a way to seamlessly integrate it into all of the things you do. It’s so much easier to be true to yourself than try to fit into a box that wasn’t made with your needs and wishes in mind. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be your call to envision how you’d like to reinvent yourself into the kind of person you really want to be.

It’s been a tough few months in the cosmos, but this month you’ll have one less planet getting in your way on your quest for success. When Saturn Retrograde ends in your zone of Fun & Creativity on the 6th, you’ll finally get the go-ahead to move forward with your current creative projects. This is an important time in your life to stop simply thinking about all of the exciting things you could be doing and actually find a way to make them real, and luckily, there will be so much more clarity to be had now that Saturn will no longer be slowing things down.

Toward the end of this month, a Full Moon in Aries will be setting your Business & Finance sector on fire – most likely in a good way. Chances are you’ve been working very hard these past 6 months to create a more solid strategy for financial success and this will be the time to see your efforts come full circle. It will be a great time for promoting yourself and taking advantage of the bountiful blessings that want to come your way. On the flip side, you may also catch a glimpse at the work you still need to do to get to the next level as this Full Moon will not just be about manifesting, but also for releasing anything that hasn’t perfectly gone your way. Do your best to brush it off and try to appreciate how far you’ve come, knowing that there is still time to fine-tune your strategy for the future.

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

Not gonna lie, this may feel like a bit of a weird time for you, Libra. The Sun is moving through your Spirituality sector for most of this month, and you may feel like there is a change in the air, but not complete clarity around what that change might entail. There is a sense of needing to take some time out to yourself to think things through and reflect on the past in order to get back in touch with what kind of life you want to have in the future. Try to be kind to yourself and have patience. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the ideal time to sit down and journal out some of the things you’d like to do to add more meaning and purpose to your daily life going forward.

With Saturn Retrograde finally ending in your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security, you will have the opportunity to pick up the pace when it comes to creating a more comfortable personal life for yourself whether that means moving, renovating, or working through family or financially related strife. This is a pretty big year for getting things in check in each of these areas, and even though there may have been some confusion around what the best way will be to get on track with your long-term goals, now clarity is on the way. And with it, the sweet satisfaction that comes from finally making solid progress!

Just after the Sun slides into your sign later in the month, there will be a Full Moon in your opposite sign of Aries on the 24th. This will bring relationship issues up to the surface to be celebrated, cleared, or released – depending on what is going on for you in this area at the time. Full Moons are amazing times for both blessings and lessons and this one will be important for coming to understand where you currently stand when it comes to your closest ties with others and what needs to be done to right any wrongs or reset the balance in order to reintroduce the feeling of peace and harmony you prefer.

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

It’s time to share the special skills you’ve got in stock! For most of this month, the Sun is moving through your 11th house of Community & Friendship, calling you forth to connect with others around you and expand your reach to help more of the people who are in need of what you have to offer whether they be fellow friends, potential clients or customers, or all of the above. The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the start of a whole new cycle that will allow you to call in more like-minded people to be a part of your very special inner circle.

On a similar note, with Saturn Retrograde ending in your zone of Social Networking early in the month, finding the right words to use to share your message and ideas will suddenly become much more straightforward. Although you may have been dealing with some confusion when it came to promoting yourself to others these past 4.5 months, this is an important chapter in your life for moving forward and getting the word out about what you want while surrounding yourself with co-collaborators who can help you make it so.

As this month begins fading out, a Full Moon in Aries will blaze high above your Daily Work & Wellness sector, helping you pay closer attention to where your work and life has gotten out of balance so you can start to reel it back in. You may also finally reach an important milestone that has you celebrating hard work that has finally paid off. Whatever the case may be, take this time to appreciate how far you’ve come over the past 6 months and show yourself some gratitude as well as grace when it comes to the work you still have yet to do.

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

Hold on tight! Your career is blasting off this month as the Sun moves through your 10th house of Career & Higher Calling until September 23rd. It’s your time to rise to the occasion by making a more meaningful impact on others through the work you are here to do in the world. Since this area also rules over your public image, you might ask yourself how you could put your skills and talents out there and make what you do far more well known. The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th is your call to envision what your ideal career would look & feel like and then get ready to manifest it into being!

To add even more rocket fuel to the mix, Saturn finally ends its annual retrograde on the 6th to help you zoom full speed ahead in your 2nd house of Values, Desires & Goal Setting. Since last December, you’ve been challenged to get clear on what you really want out of life and create a solid plan to make it happen. Now that Saturn is no longer making things as hazy, you can finally find the next rung on the ladder to reach up higher towards your version of sweet goal smashing success.

With a Full Moon in Aries kicking off the final week of September, a creative project may finally be coming full circle as a fire is lit in your zone of Fun & Creativity. This is a time to celebrate seeing the ideas you first planted last April bloom fully into being while also paying attention to any further arrangements you can make to help them continue to blossom and grow.

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

For most of September, the Sun is sprinting through your zone of Education, Exploration & Self-Discovery, urging you on to leap in some exciting new directions. Perhaps you’re feeling especially adventurous and ready to take on a new activity, location, or area of study. This is a good time to step out of your comfort zone and open yourself up to fresh experiences and opportunities that stretch you and help you grow! The New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be especially amazing for envisioning the type of adventures you’d like to show up in your future next.

Meanwhile, your ruling planet Saturn has stopped getting flipped around in retrograde and is finally moving forward again in your sign. This is a strong year for you to step up and grab life by the horns by harnessing your leadership potential and having the courage to align who you truly are on the inside with your outward actions. Now that Saturn won’t be giving you extra trouble, you can move forward and make progress on your quest to personal reinvention while removing any constrictions that have been keeping you from portraying yourself in a more authentic way.

On September 24th, the Full Moon in Aries will be lighting up your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security. If you’ve been working hard to create a more comfortable life for yourself at home, then this is going to be the time to see it all come full circle. You could manifest wonderful blessings into your life that make you feel more secure, while also coming to see what more needs to be done to make your situation truly ideal.

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

Time to put your mind where your money is! For most of this month, the Sun is moving through your 8th house of Business & Finance, giving you a chance to take a closer look at how you could be earning or managing your money more smartly. Whether it’s coming up with a better strategy for structuring your offerings so you can boost up your bottom line or creating a new budget to help you better manage where your money goes, the New Moon in Virgo on September 9th will be the perfect time to set an intention on how you’d like to create the sense of financial security you crave.

One of the biggest reliefs this month will be when our strict teacher planet Saturn stops backspinning and starts moving forward again in your Spirituality sector. Ever since Saturn first moved into this area last December, this has been a seriously important time for you to release the past including old emotions and thought patterns that have only been keeping you stuck. Now that the gears are grooving again, you can begin to gain some satisfaction from all of those hours of deep reflection you’ve been putting in and get more deeply in touch with a greater sense of faith and purpose in something bigger than yourself.

Before this month grinds to a halt, a Full Moon in Aries will be bursting on the scene to ramp up activity in your zone of Social Networking. A friendly collaboration could finally come full circle or you could have the chance to connect with someone who can help you take your ideas to the next level. At the same time, you may realize which connections are no longer leading you where you actually want to go, so this will be both a time to appreciate and re-assess.

Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

Love is in the air! This month, the Sun is moving through your opposite sign of Virgo until September 23rd, and as it does, it will be lighting up your 7th house of Relationships. Whether you are on the hunt for a new romantic or business partner, a healer, or simply someone to provide you with support in an area of your life where it is most welcome, the New Moon in Virgo is the best time to make your wish list of the type of qualities you would like this person to have so you can begin to let the Universe know you’re ready to reel ’em in! And if you’re already taken? Consider this your cue to strengthen the bonds you already have and reset any imbalances that are throwing things askew.

With Saturn finally ending it’s super long retrograde in your Friendship & Community sector, you can finally start to wrap your head around the best way to be of service to the people around you. This has been a pretty big focus for you ever since Saturn entered this part of your chart back in December, and there may have been a lot of experimenting and backtracking happening here. Luckily, you can finally start to get a better handle on the way you can provide your skills and talents to do your part to improve the lives of others and, in turn, the world.

As the last week of September kicks off, a Full Moon in Aries will be rising up in your 2nd house of Values, Desires, and Goal Setting. Not only is this an awesome time to manifest more of the things you want, whether it’s love, money, or another measure of self-worth, but you can also take this opportunity to get clearer on which of your previous wishes can now be checked off the list – either because you’ve changed your mind or because you can now rightfully celebrate the fact that they’ve finally been artfully accomplished.
