|Horoscope: The November Forecast
Forecast for the Lunar Month of Scorpio (covering October 25, 2003 to November 23, 2003)
The New Moon in Scorpio takes place October 25th, at 6:51am MDT at 01*41' Scorpio. The new moon in Sagittarius will occur November 23th.
A Special Note: The time from New Moon to New Moon (called a synodic month) is 29.53 days. Because we started these monthly forecasts with the February 1st New Moon, you'll see the beginning of our Astrological Month slide slowly into the prior Calendar Month.
To understand real astrology you need a natal chart (a snapshot of the solar system at the moment of your birth). You can get a good free chart from Astrolabe or Astrodienst. *All* the planets and signs are vital to each of us, and the interplay of their archetypes is just as dynamic as we are. Please note that if your Sun (or any planet) is on the cusp between signs, you will experience a blend of both types of energy. It is best to read this forecast in light of your Moon (needs) sign, Sun (ego) sign, Ascendant (personality), and any multi-planet grouping in your chart.
The month of Scorpio is lined up to be spectacularly intense. After last month's emphasis on relationships, this month brings the focus back to the self. Are you doing what you need to be true to yourself? What do you need to change? Extreme behavior is possible. There's so much energy available for creative change and growth, you may find yourself embarking on all kinds of new things. Potential exists for new romances, new stages in your career, new understanding of mysteries, and public uncovering of secrets. Matters of law and higher education require diligent step-by-step action this month. There will be no cutting corners now, but you'll reap the rewards of your labor this spring.
Scorpio is probably the most misunderstood sign of the zodiac. Each sign is like a costume that dictates each planet's behavior while in that sign, and in that sense, Scorpio is the costume of the criminal profiler, the investigative reporter, and the elder magician. Scorpio is about going deep into the underbelly of life, observing truth in all its beauty and ugliness, and understanding the naked processes of the world. Scorpio entails the most difficult areas of life: sex, death, the occult, inheritance, debt. People with an emphasis of planets in this sign are learning how to deal with these issues in this lifetime.
Two weeks from now, we'll experience a Full Moon Eclipse, with the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus. This will crank up the already elevated Scorpio intensity even further. With the Scorpio-Taurus axis already known for its heightened sensuality, we can expect unduly earthy, passionate, or possessive behavior.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) This month you're prone to experience the Scorpio intensity discussed above over and over again until you get your full measure of the lessons. (Don't worry, it's just a month.) The key is to approach things like a child flipping over rocks to see the squirming bugs underneath. Just remember to temper curiosity with common sense.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) This month is about making things beautiful in a very hands-on, material way. In your relationships, you may feel more passionate than in months, and you may be inclined to further intensify your relationship with your partner. Be careful with what you embark on. Focus extra effort on communicating what you need to feel safe.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) If you're prone to nervous exhaustion, this month is a perfect time for a vacation, especially with the holidays on the way. Even if you're not prone to exhaustion, you need to be careful of this autumn intensity wearing you out and aggravating health issues. It's also a good time to do some realistic financial planning for the coming year.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) This month, you may feel that something's a bit off. You'll need to spend extra energy to reach a normal level of emotional security. It's no fun to feel vulnerable, but you can draw extra support from learning something new, creative efforts, time with kids, and showing your loved ones how much you care.
Leo (July 23-Aug 22) This month brings you an uncanny emphasis on endings. It may feel a little like karma sneaking up on you, but in reality, it's just that cycles are coming to their natural close. Acknowledge, grieve, and move forward with the business of living. Beware of projecting old issues onto present partners and close friends.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22) This month may feel like you're running both hot and cold. You alternate between talking a mile a minute about this amazing new thing you've discovered, and then you get very quiet as your depth of understanding shifts. Actively listen to others and find new levels previously unseen. Relationships get fiery.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22) This month, you'll be feeling particularly artistic, and a good deal of your self-esteem will be wrapped up in how well you're implementing the plans you started last month. You may feel a bit like you're in over your head, but you'll be okay as long as you follow your heart. Pay attention to dreams of houses.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) Happy Birthday! It's one thing after another this month, and no one is letting you hide. You're drawing all the spotlights, wanted and unwanted, but the great benefit is that you can use it to make some constructive changes around you. Career opportunities are possible, but changes will have hidden clauses you don't discover til later.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21) Sometimes you've got the world by the horns, and well, sometimes karma comes out of the woodwork and bites you. This month, you can ease the pain by preemptively making up for past misdeeds, but lying will make it all much worse. At work, look out for problematic procedural changes that try to reinvent the wheel.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) This month, you'll find yourself looking very closely at who your friends an allies are. In doing so, remember that your issues are more about how much you need to feel appreciated than anything other people are actually doing. Be gentle with your words. Cultivate patience to increase your sense of emotional security.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) This month you'll find yourself doing a lot of soul-searching about just what you want out of your career. The intensity of your work situation and/or relationship with authority may set your teeth on edge. You can gracefully enforce your boundaries without alienating anyone. You can use your sense of mystery to your advantage.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) This is one of those months that just screams for action. Expect competition. Expect to need to prove that you are what you claim to be, but don't go overboard. The point is not to pick fights, just to be true to yourself. If things go right, you should arrive at a whole new understanding of how well-adjusted people interact.
Amtgard Character Class Horoscopes
Provincial Leaders Politics, politics, politics. This month is all about power, power-brokering, and excavating hidden things. It's a good time to start some reform.
Bards Sing. Bring out your new material. This month, you're in rare form, so grace us with everything you've got. You'll be amazing.
Warriors, Paladins, Anti-Paladins Paranoia will cause you problems. Fighting energy will be fluid and strong. You may get so caught up in the moment that you accidentally sluff your shots (more than usual, anyway). Don't trounce the rules (or reeves).
Healers Ever feel like you've got a direct line to the healing power of the universe? Take nothing for granted, and this month, it's yours. Authority figures may become a point of obsession.
Wizards At last, authority is on your side. Unfortuately, you're having a heck of a time getting leadership, strategy, and opportunity to arrive together on the field at the same time.
Assassins It's probably not a good time for the cloak and dagger bit when people are commenting, "Hey, look at the ninja trying to kill the monarch!" You get points for style, though.
Barbarians and All Monster Races It's about home. It's about territory. It's about...well, honestly, it's Greek (and very loud Greek) to the rest of us, but you seem to be having a lot of fun doing whatever it is.
Archers, Scouts, Druids, and Monks This month it's back to rules questions and striving toward new innovative tactics and technology. Be prepared to prove yourself against authority.
Garbers and Artisans You were made to make beautiful things. This month proves it beyond the shadow of a doubt. Let your skill and fervor guide you. Let what you make now sweep Culturals.
