Your Weekly Horoscopes: November 6 to 12, 2022
For the entirety of the last two years (2021-22), Saturn in Aquarius has been squaring Uranus in Taurus. Saturn is the planet of discipline, structure and longevity, and in Aquarius, the ringed planet requires us to regulate both technology and our social life. Think of how you socialized and used the internet prior to 2020 when Saturn first entered Aquarius, and how you do so now. Uranus, on the other hand, is the planet of revolution and rapid change, and in Taurus, it pushes us way out of our usual comfort zone. For the last two years, these two planets have been in a constant difficult conversation, reflecting how hard it’s been for us to find stability or routine in a post-2020 world. Saturn-Uranus can be destabilizing but it’s also extremely creative and innovative, as seen in the public figures who carry this configuration in their chart like certified genius Jeff Goldblum and quirky rock star David Byrne.
There’s no returning to 2019, but what exactly are we supposed to do instead? This week’s lunar eclipse—a super potent full moon—in Taurus on the 8th brings what we’ve been struggling with for the last two years to a necessary climax. There’s grief in realizing all that we’ve lost, but also freedom and relief in tapping into what’s possible instead. It’s prickly out there! Be kind.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This week brings the ongoing pressure you’ve felt to earn more so you can share and connect with more purpose to a head. The lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th lights up your money sector and could bring a surprise check in the mail or an unexpected gift from a friend. Where in the past you’d splurge or fritter this influx away, you’re now concerned with how to make this cash grow to realize big dreams.
This week’s mantra: “Save.”
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
This tension you’ve felt to prove yourself so you can reach new heights in your career and relationships builds to a climax this week. The lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th is in your sign, highlighting all the ways both your body and mindset have shifted over the last two years. Where in the past you’d be too nervous to go out of your comfort zone and take a risk with fashion, makeup or your hairstyle, you’re now keen to prioritize self expression. Let your freak flag fly.
This week’s mantra: “Show.”
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
It’s easy to stay in a place of being stuck or feeling defeated, but what if you actually took some time to rest rather than spending all your free time anxiously scrolling? Worrying so much is keeping you from the work you need to do to achieve your big dreams. The lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th might be a sleepless night, but afterwards you’re ready to release fear and step into the next phase of your life.
This week’s mantra: “Release.”
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You’re ready to connect more and go after some big career dreams, but all year, you’ve felt frustrated with the resources available to make those dreams come true. You want to create, but you just don’t have the funds or the emotional energy to back up the project. The lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th highlights your community ties, reminding you that you’re only one unexpected phone call away from realizing your vision.
This week’s mantra: “Connect.”
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)
Though this year has brought you plenty of exciting career or leadership opportunities, you’ve also had to spend less time at home and with the people you love to make it all work. The lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th brings a big meeting, performance review or chance to show off in public. This moment feels triumphant but also comes with feelings of grief over your lack of work/life balance. How can you split your attention while still going after your dreams?
This week’s mantra: “Balance.”
Virgo (August 23 - September 23)
This week brings the ongoing pressure you’ve felt to master a goal—whether at work, school or in the kitchen—to a head. The more energy you’ve put into studying, the more you’ve let some familiar routines drift away. It’s been so much harder to feel healthy and fulfilled. This week’s lunar eclipse on the 8th comes with some much deserved acknowledgment from a teacher or mentor that allows you to give yourself a break and appreciate how far you’ve come.
This week’s mantra: “Praise.”
Libra (September 23 - October 21)
Whether you’re building a business, getting serious with a partner or seeking out loans for school or a new home, “how much” you have has not been totally up to you this year. Though your personal resources (both financial and energetic) and creativity feel stretched thin, the lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th comes with some unexpected support or generosity to boost your morale. Accept the help when it comes.
This week’s mantra: “Share.”
Scorpio (October 22 - November 21)
Opening yourself up to new possibilities in relationships (whether romantic, business or otherwise) has been your primary challenge this year, Scorpio. Change is hard for you, but the more you open your heart to new people, contracts and agreements, the more comfortable you are with yourself and your place in the world. The lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th brings this year’s ongoing partnership narrative to a head and may coincide with a fated meeting. Get curious.
This week’s mantra: “Open.”
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
This week brings the pressure you’ve been experiencing at work or with your health to a boiling point. Over the past year, your schedule has been rigid or restricted. It often feels easier to hide away than to actively participate in your own life. But the lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th brings an unexpected opportunity to bond with your coworkers or solve a health problem that restores your faith in hard work. Keep trying.
This week’s mantra: “Activate.”
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
This week’s lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th brings an unexpected opportunity for you to let your hair down and enjoy the present moment. You’ve been under a lot of pressure to get both your finances and your career goals in order, and have lost a lot of your usual creative or romantic outlets in the process. This week, try something new. Go on a blind date! Pull your watercolors out of the closet! Make a delicious meal and share it with your friends!
This week’s mantra: “Experiment.”
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
This week brings the pressure you’ve felt to solidify your identity and career so that you can better support your family to a head. The lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th brings some seismic activity on the home front. Whether there’s a literal or figurative flood in your basement, you’re forced to put all of your energy into your private life, an area you’ve been avoiding in search of success. Stabilizing your foundation helps other areas of your life move forward.
This week’s mantra: “Focus.”
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You’ve been feeling pressure all year to master something—whether going back to school, taking on more responsibility at work or coming into your own as a parent or mentor. The pursuit of expertise has often left you feeling isolated or out of touch. But this week’s lunar eclipse on the 8th brings something unexpected to your routine that reconfigures your idea of success vs. failure. What seems like a simple invitation to a party at your neighbor’s house could be life-changing.
This week’s mantra: “Accept.”
