Day: November 8, 2019
Welcome to the season of the Scorpio—that mysterious, enigmatic astrological sign that most of us find ourselves inexplicably drawn to. And as such, many of us may also be wondering what the world of astrological compatibility looks like for the Scorpio.
One thing to keep in mind when looking into any zodiac compatibility is that these methods generally focus on the Sun sign—a very important sign in the natal chart, but not at all the only sign to consider when exploring your potential compatibility with another person. For a truly in-depth look into the viability of a relationship from an astrological point of view, you’ll want to contact a professional astrologer and have them run a synastry report based on both of your natal charts.
With that in mind, it’s time to dive in and discover the most compatible signs for the charismatic Scorpio.
Scorpio Personality Traits
Before we explore Scorpio compatibility, it would be useful to take another look at the characteristics that make the Scorpio personality so unique.
Positive Scorpio aspects include:
Negative Scorpio aspects include:
Scorpio Love & Relationships Compatibility:
While any sign can technically vibe well with any other sign (especially depending on each partner’s surrounding chart), there are a few matches that tend to spark a passionate bonfire in the heart of the Scorpio.
Most Compatible Signs for Scorpio:
As a fellow Water sign, the Cancer may be the best match for the Scorpio due to the fact that these two will easily understand each other. Water signs have a deep connection to their emotional realm that doesn’t necessarily translate to every other element—Earth signs are more concerned with responsibility and duty, Fire signs are passionate and impulsive, and Air signs are deeply connected to their thoughts.
Cancers understand what it’s like to have emotions that exist so embedded within your veins, they acknowledge the need for emotional connection, and they sympathize with the Scorpio’s (selective) inability to let go of a grudge. While this pair will undoubtedly understand the emotional distresses or upsets of one another, it’s important to remain self-aware within this connection—there’s a good chance that both of you have a hard time forgiving. As long as communication remains open, this is an excellent match.
Pisces is another Water sign with a slightly dreamier demeanor—they like to keep their heads in the unicorn-soaked clouds of their own internal reality. A Pisces will excel at bringing out the creative forces of the Scorpio, helping them feel safe in the realm of self-expression. This pair would likely spend many romantic evenings exploring art and creative endeavors, or maybe even spending an evening at home enjoying each other’s company amidst some candlelight and a glass of wine.
Capricorns are patient and level-headed—an excellent match for the wild imagination that a Scorpio often possesses. Scorpios can be jealous by nature, but the cool and reserved nature of the Capricorn is confident and secure enough to thwart these fears while remaining devoted.
Least Compatible Signs for Scorpio:
Geminis are ruled by Air and spend a lot of time thinking; whereas the Scorpio is more active in decision-making, a Gemini might mull over their sandwich options for well over 45 minutes before landing on a BLT or a Turkey Club. Passionate Scorpios may feel frustrated or even overwhelmed by the amount of time it takes for a Gemini to get on board with a certain decision, action, or event.
Leos are the astrological Bell-of-the-Ball, which can easily grate on the equally enigmatic Scorpio’s nerves. It’s not that these two will necessarily battle for the attention of those around them, but internal resentment is possible within this union.
Like the Gemini, Libras are an Air sign—but their personality is so go-with-the-flow and love-your-neighbors that it may sometimes clash with a Scorpio’s sense of right and wrong. Scorpios are passionate about their feelings towards others and they aren’t afraid to speak up when they feel they’ve been slighted. On the other hand, Libras are forgiving and concerned with getting along with their peers—they’re much more likely to let a slight go unnoticed than the observant and somewhat righteous Scorpio. This pair may have disagreements about how others should handle discord or misunderstanding.
Romancing the Scorpio
What really matters in the end is how willing two people are to communicate with one another, regardless of their sign. But if you do find yourself lucky enough to catch the attention of the charismatic Scorpio, you should know that you’re in for a wonderful and mysterious trip on a river of depth and intrigue.

Venus just entered fiery Sagittarius on November 1 and stays in this adventurous sign until November 25. This is actually the second time this year that Venus is in Sagittarius! Lover Venus was also in Sagittarius from January 7 to February 3. And, both times, lucky Jupiter (who is also the natural ruling planet for Sagittarius), is with Venus in Sagittarius. That’s some super Sagittarius energy!
Venus and Jupiter are considered the most beneficial of the planets (called the benefics). These two planets like to keep things light and on the happy side. Earlier in the year, this led to some pleasant, lucky energy in love for all of the signs. Now, you get a second dose! Which is actually quite fitting considering Mercury is currently retrograde, and retrogrades are perfect opportunities for second chances.

What Venus in Sagittarius Feels Like
If you were born with Venus in Sagittarius, you know that this placement is one that loves adventure in love. This is a placement that can be difficult to pin down as it’s always looking for fun times and doesn’t want to feel held back at all. Once Venus in Sagittarius meets someone they want to stick with, keeping things interesting, exciting, and adventurous becomes a constant focus to keep the relationship strong.
While Venus is touring Sagittarius, we can all feel this way to a degree. You love an adventure, and love can be the greatest adventure!
Now that the second round has begun, you can focus on trying to take a second chance at a variety of things, including making love an adventure. If you’re in a relationship, you may want to go for a quick trip with your sweetie, or do something a little wild together like sky-diving or learning how to ride a motorcycle. This is not the time to keep things stale and boring. Shake it up a little bit!
If you’re single, you may actually have an easier time with your status. Sagittarius loves freedom and space, and you can use your freedom and space to do whatever you want without having someone to check in with. You may even meet someone while you’re having your own adventure.
Venus in Sagittarius for the Zodiac Signs
During this second round, while you’re pushed by Mercury retrograde and armed with some of Jupiter’s luck (and maybe increase that luck some more with some lucky crystals), here are some ideas for different things you can take another chance with:
Focus on an old idea of yours that you thought was too big for you to pursue. Now you can focus on it and realize that maybe it wasn’t so unrealistic! You can open up new avenues and find a different path. This can help prevent you from getting too wrapped up in any serious matters.
Focus on areas where intimacy can be improved in your relationships, and then spice things up by trying out new things with your loved ones. Doing something daring and fun together can help you grow closer, and help strengthen your connection again.
Reignite some fire in your relationships. Focus on the ones that have become a little stale, and pinpoint ways you can jazz it up. Try going on an adventure together and see how that improves your connection. Paying closer attention to them and to your relationship may also help.
Reignite the fire for the work you’re doing. This might mean making some changes with your work, pushing for something new, making some new demands, working with or for new people, and bringing some passion back. If you’re not loving it, find what you do love, as this may be a time to rediscover love and joy.
Focus on reconnecting to your heart. Make some time for the things you love to do and the people you love to be around, get back in touch with your inner child, and just let yourself have some fun (especially if it’s bold and daring). This can help you feel better emotionally as well, and keep you more centered.
Focus on strengthening your internal foundation. This may mean giving attention to something you need to work on or let go of, it may mean reconnecting with those who support you to make you feel nurtured, or it may mean letting yourself be bold in ways you haven’t before. Keep lines of communication open and flowing to help.
Give your ideas more of your attention. Think about the ones you’ve been passionate about but didn’t follow through with or didn’t have the time for, and focus on ways you can make it happen now. You can take a chance on yourself! Don’t let feelings of stuckness keep you from moving forward.
Focus on bringing stability and security to areas that have been a little chaotic and you’ve been struggling to calm down in the past. It should help if you’re grounded now, and take your time as you go along instead of rushing. Little things may pop up along the way, so don’t let that throw you off. Keep an eye on the big picture.
This is all about you, so you can focus on almost anything you want a second chance with. You can feel more excited and enthusiastic, and push for what you want. With the Mercury retrograde, just make sure you’re releasing enough to allow room for the new, and recharging yourself as needed.
Keep working on things behind the scenes for now, and work to take another shot at releasing something, letting go of something, or moving on from something. You’ve got big energy coming to end the year, and you want to go into it free from heavy baggage. If you’re questioning your dreams right now, just keep going.
You’ve probably been working on lots of different changes this year, so focus on one that didn’t work out or you haven’t had the chance to focus on yet. This can be the last shot of energy you have to make it happen and get started. You may need to alter your direction a little to get it moving.
Focus on taking another chance with one of your goals, and work on your plans for it. You can be practical with your approach yet also a little bold, and put yourself on the right path. You may want to give yourself a little bit of space while you’re working on it so you don’t feel too overwhelmed, and embrace some of the big ideas.
Whatever you take another chance with and whatever relationship you may focus on, make sure you do so with a lighter heart and an eye on opportunities for adventure. Jupiter leaves Sagittarius only 2 weeks after Venus does, so this is the last opportunity you’ll have to work with this energy.
Have fun on your own, have fun with loved ones, have fun with family and friends. Just try to have fun!

Both Tarot cards and journals work to help connect you to your subconscious and your spirit.
The art of working with the Tarot is that the cards can be utilized entirely on their own: you don’t technically need anything other than your favorite deck and a safe space to perform a reading. There are many tools available that can enhance any reading and help you build an even deeper relationship with the cards, one of the most effective ways is working with a personal Tarot journal.
They help you dive into the deeper realms of your being and discover the hidden treasures. Many people already use each of these spiritual, metaphysical tools separately, but there is magic to be found when using them together.
You’ll create a stronger bond with your deck, understand more about yourself, and boost your creativity.
Should You Record Your Tarot Readings?
Think of the feeling you get when you have just finished a particularly enlightening reading. It’s like the Universe has spoken directly to you and given you that illuminating piece of guidance that you really needed. It can be hard, however, to remember that feeling or the cards involved without documentation. Writing about your spread can help you remember everything about what made reading so special.
Keeping track of your readings can also help you understand the Tarot in more depth. Even very seasoned readers sometimes forget the meaning of a certain card, and there’s no shame in that. When you write a brief description of the cards and their personal or defined meanings after each reading, it helps solidify that information in your mind.
Another benefit of writing about your readings is that it can shed light on aspects you may have overlooked. Sometimes, even days after a reading, a piece of information may strike like a flash of lightning, giving you more insight into what a certain card was trying to convey. Taking a moment to jot down your thoughts and feelings about your readings will help stir up your senses and help your brain process the reading more clearly.
It also gives you a chance to decompress and talk about your feelings surrounding a situation or relationship the cards mention. You can also use your Tarot cards and readings as a journaling prompt when you’re not feeling inspired. Start with a brief reading, write about the cards you drew and what you think they mean, and see if your pen begins to flow more freely into a stream of consciousness. Amplify clarity while boosting your creativity.

Which Type of Journal Should I use with Tarot?
As a journal junkie myself, any excuse to procure and prepare a new journal is like a holiday. If you feel the same way, use this as an opportunity to find a shiny new notebook or break out that pretty journal you’ve been saving for a special occasion. This mystical Sacred Rune Journal would be a perfect journal for documenting readings. No matter what you choose, feel free to go crazy with decorations, stickers, collage, glitter—whatever makes it feel magical and inviting.
If you want to keep things simple, you can even use a composition notebook or any blank notepad you might have lying around the house. The only thing that matters is that it’s a journal that you will actually want to use.
What Should I Write About?
There are countless ways to use your Tarot journal, and you may choose to use one method or many. One of the easiest ways to get started is by writing down interpretations of the cards. You might pull a different card each day and write about that or start from The Fool and work your way through. Try drawing a small version of the card next to your description for reference or just for fun. If you have a printer at home, you could even print out small pictures to cut and paste each card.
You might try using your Tarot journal to document your favorite spreads or create your own. When you make your own spread, not only are you sparking your own creative fire, you can personalize your reading even further. Design a spread meant to answer specific questions or address issues that are personal to you. You can use your journal as a jumping-off point for your spreads by writing out your spread first and then performing a reading with them. Use the following pages to track future experiences using this spread.
Keeping track of each reading is a great way to discover patterns in your readings like which cards you draw most often and to chronicle your life in a new, unique way. If you date your readings, their meanings, and your feelings about them, you can keep track of not only your experiences with the Tarot but with your path.
You could section your journal off into categories like interpretations, readings, and spreads—perhaps including a section for creative writing or doodles. If you’re feeling nostalgic, draw an image of your favorite card and color it in with your favorite markers or crayons.
Which Deck Should I Use?
You can use any deck you’d like when working with your Tarot journal, and you may enjoy mixing it up from time to time. If you don’t have a deck and you’re looking for a place to start, try this beautiful Master Tarot Deck, which comes with 78 gorgeous cards and a guidebook.
Working with the Tarot is a sacred experience and it should feel right to you. With these ideas in mind, explore your own creative crevices and invite your creativity to unfold and blossom. If you’re having a relaxing, enlightening, or creative time, you’re doing it right.

It is overall a quiet week from the Universe with very few changes from the planets to report. This is a nice change of pace after an intense week last week where Mercury went retrograde, Venus entered Sagittarius, and a New Moon arrived.
This week we are working through some of the many changes that came into play or began trickling into our sphere as of last week. As the first full week of November opens up, we are looking ahead to seeing where those new beginnings can take us.
It helps this week to examine the new beginnings that we experienced last month and what changes they can lead us into for November. What new beginnings did you experience last month? Think of how you can make October’s changes grow into bigger ones this month. Using numerology tools such as our Free Daily Numerology Reading can help.
Review Changes in Your Numerology: Beneficial Thought: October Numerology Brings New Beginnings
This week, we have change-maker Pluto making some noise in our every day. Pluto is the planet that helps us to tear down the walls that are standing in our way. This requires personal power to identify what those walls are, and how to tear them down in constructive and healthy ways.
The unfortunate thing with Pluto is sometimes these opportunities of change present themselves, and we freak out and do nothing. The Fixed signs Scorpio, Leo, Taurus, and Aquarius, are the most susceptible to being resistant to change. With the Sun being in Fixed sign Scorpio right now, the climate from Universe is leading us all to be resistant to change.
But the changes this week that Pluto is bringing will be favorable, and it is important to be willing and ready to embrace those changes. Only then will we be able to use October’s new beginnings to help us grow and bring even more new chapters in our lives.
At the same time, these changes are going to lead to some intense and tiring days. Use divination tools and things such as chakra healing and meditation to help you find your happy place during intense moments this first full week of November.
Find your zen! And if you struggle with this, let us know and we will be happy to help. Namaste, lovelies!

- Mercury in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn: This is overall a favorable transit and will bring some wonderful news your way. This news comes courtesy of communicatorMercury working with change-maker Pluto. News may take down some walls for you to rebuild in a brighter light, but you also may just be making some big changes in your life today. You may find that you make big decisions today under this influence, and may not at first realize their power potential. But you also may find yourself in a bit of a power struggle today after a conversation, or even during one, or when you receive some news. This transit is largely favorable though and occurring in Mercury retrograde, so this news could even slow things down for you. And that could be a good thing. It’s important to look at all change variables today with a fresh eye and as opportunities rather than stumbling blocks. Tools such as chakra pendulums work wonders on days like today.

Have you ever met an animal that was hyper like wind blowing through leaves? Perhaps you’ve met an aggressive animal that reminded you of a raging fire or a very slow-moving lovable pet that loved to sleep?
The elements of astrology are one way we can begin to understand why pets are each so unique in addition to the traits they inherit genetically. Certain breeds have certain tendencies and, the environment and early life experiences all shape their personalities just like humans.
Do Pets Have Zodiac Signs?
Have you ever wondered if the day your pet was born shapes their personality?
It may seem silly to ask this question but our pets affect our life so much and for some of us, we spend more time with our pets than our friends and family. Looking through the lens of astrology, we can understand what our pet feels like inside so we can better adjust to their energy just as we do with people. Just as you wouldn’t ask an outgoing hyper person to be alone all the time, you wouldn’t want to keep a naturally social dog cooped up.
Alternatively, just as you wouldn’t ask a shy and introverted person to be out and about a lot, the same goes for a naturally shy pet. Understanding their soul is something that many people never do, but it can prove very useful for them and for you.
Let’s try to understand these wonderful creatures based on their elements and then look at the specific traits of each sign. For those of you who have a pet, you know that even though they don’t speak words; they communicate a lot. This may help you unlock what they are trying to communicate to improve your relationship with them. This may also help you understand why you sometimes meet an animal and have to adopt them!
The Water Signs
These animals are sensitive, know how you’re feeling, moody, and cuddly. They don’t deal well with negative discipline.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
These pets cling to you and cry for no reason. They want to cuddle and can be a bit shy around new people. They need lots of love, affection, and are food motivated. They are affected by the energy of the home the most. This pet will love to nap. Your little Cancer friend is likely to be as sensitive as its human counterpart. Cancers love very deeply, and this pet probably looks at you as though you’re the only human that exists. They dislike being chastised, and might even go off to their own corner of the world to pout it out. They want your attention and they want it now!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
These pets are intense and have a one-track mind so they may be an escape artist or get into the treats. They are always in your business but make you feel loved. They will help you get through the tough times because they are tuned into your emotions. Do you seek loyalty in your pets? Then the Scorpio animal will win you over almost instantaneously. They love you dearly and their home even more so. This is not a pet who enjoys moving around from place to place. They enjoy their time spent alone, but will often seek you out when they want to express their love. Their charm and loyalty will pull at all of your heartstrings.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
This pet loves to be your constant companion, and they are likely a lap pet. They are playful and snugly and need human interaction. They will always try to cheer you up. This is another pet sign that includes a modicum of sensitivity and perhaps moodiness. They pick up on your mood, so be careful when you’re stewing and ranting as your furry friend can sense this and it will pain them. These animals may fall prey to impulse and indulge their curiosity in a manner that sometimes causes accidents for them, so keep an eye out when they’re on an adventure. This pet is likely to want to stay snuggled up with you all day.
The Fire Signs
These animals are loyal, energetic, temperamental, and confident. They may be jealous, possessive, or aggressive when untrained.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
This pet is always on the go, digging, playing with toys, and doing anything they can to get attention. They are moody and can get snippy but will quickly forget. They are dominant so they need an authoritative voice to train them. An Aries pet is likely to exhibit signs of bravery and leadership, often protecting the other, perhaps smaller, animals in the house—and even keeping a watchful eye on you. Aries pets want to be the boss, the alpha, and even their stride seems confident. They let you know when they want attention and typically enjoy quite a bit of independence. They might be more territorial than other animal signs, much like their human counterparts.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
This pet will go to great lengths to get your attention whether that means going through the trash, jumping on the furniture, or making noise. They are fun and love to play with other animals and people as long as they can be the boss. Like their Aries cousins, Leo pets tend to lead rather than follow. Think of the pride of a lion and remember that your little Leo friend possesses this level of confidence and determination. They are faithful to their owners, but they may become upset with you when you establish your dominance or scold them. This pet sign is particularly well-behaved and loving with children, so feel free to bring the little humans around.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
This is the pet that is always finding adventure and wanting to explore. They are good-natured but given the chance, they will dash outside. The pets who fall in the sign of Sagittarius are energetic and strong-willed. They can almost be seen as the dopey, fun-loving sign of the group. Sure, they may have trouble with their balance or even act goofy at times, but they make up for their clumsiness with their ability to love. They develop a fierce bond between themselves and their humans, so if you want adoration and love, this is the sign to look for.

The Air Signs
These are social animals marked by a friendly demeanor and scattered attention. They love new things and exploring new places.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
This curious and playful pet will keep you laughing and will seem to have a split personality. This is the pet that will get themselves stuck in a tree or eat things if given the chance. They need stimulation or playmates. These pets contain an almost endless well of energy, and they aren’t afraid to share it. These are the pets who demand attention and go to great lengths to please or entertain their master. They have a formidable charm that translates even to strangers; everyone loves this animal. Their curiosity may sometimes get the better of them, so try to keep an eye out when they’re off on their adventures.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
This sign is your best friend and a smart pet. They are constantly wanting to communicate with you and play. These little animals can be quite chatty, or they may have sharpened their nonverbal cues enough to show you want they want simply by body language. It sometimes feels as if the Libra pet can peer into your soul. This peculiar little creature can be very affectionate, yet equally persnickety. They are pretty much set in their ways and enjoy routine. These pets come into the world with a deserving, regal attitude.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
This sign has a streak of independence and seems a bit aloof but don’t be fooled by their attitude because they love just about everybody and are still one of the friendliest of pets. These perceptive pets understand you in an almost eerie way. Their gentle intuition seems to follow and anticipate your every mood. They are curious and adventurous, making this one of the easiest pet signs to groom – no attitude or scratches along the way! Like many of the signs we’ve explored today, this pet loves their snacks and should be monitored around food to avoid weight-based illnesses. This pet will always bring a smile to your face.
The Earth Signs
These signs need routine and don’t adapt easily to change. They are loyal, protective, and determined.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
This is the stubborn pet that will not budge on what they want. They do not give up easily and do not enjoy being told what to do either. Encourage them with treats and positive rewards. Taurus pets also are quite chill so their Humans must keep an eye on their behavior to make sure they don’t become too lazy. These pets take frequent naps and enjoy their daily snacks, maybe even too much at times. They simply want to enjoy their luxurious, yummy life. With this chill energy comes patience, this pet will be the kind to let you put costumes on them or pick them up with no stress, they just like being around you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
These pets don’t like to roll in the mud and stay in control of their environment. They feel safe when there is routine and predictable patterns to their day. They are very attached to their owners and tend to be shy around other animals and humans. Have you ever met a Virgo person who wasn’t orderly and neat? Virgo pets share the same love for cleanliness and may be found grooming themselves every chance they get, they also love a good brush or bath. This sign is representative of knowing oneself and one’s desires, and as such this can make for quite a demanding animal, perhaps more so than any other sign. Don’t fret, silly human, this pet will let you know what they want and when they want it, whether it be attention or supper.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
These pets can be overprotective because of their natural need to stay loyal and love to please their owners. They also need to get their energy out and feel productive so giving them tasks is important. Capricorn animals are often a bit of an alpha personality when they are young and more dignified as they age but their Capricorn wisdom shines through in their personality no matter what age. They enjoy napping, eating, and cleanliness. Like their Taurus cousin, their love for snacks can prove problematic at an older age, so force some exercise upon this fun-loving pet. They’re peaceful and pleasant pets to have around.
Animal & Owner Compatibility
What we really want to know though is how we can get along with our pet and that is where understanding your sign and how it relates to theirs is important. If your animal was born on the cusp of two signs, then it will have the personality of both signs.
You may be able to think back and remember pets you really bonded with and others that you had trouble getting along with. When it comes to the animal kingdom, the compatibility of astrology still applies.
Don’t think that if astrology says you and your pet are not compatible, that your relationship is doomed or that you won’t have issues if you are compatible. Compatibility is meant to help you understand how you can fit together, what areas you can find common ground, and how to respond better to each other.
For the Air signs…
- Aquarius gets along best with Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aries.
- Gemini gets along best with Aquarius, Libra, Aries, and Leo.
- Libra gets along best with Gemini, Aquarius, Libra, and Sagittarius.
For the Water signs…
- Cancer gets along best with Pisces, Taurus, Scorpio, and Virgo.
- Pisces gets along best with Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus, and Capricorn.
- Scorpio gets along best with Pisces, Capricorn, Cancer, and Virgo.
For the Fire signs…
- Aries gets along best with Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, and Aquarius.
- Leo gets along best with Sagittarius, Aries, Gemini, Libra.
- Sagittarius gets along best with Leo, Aries, Libra, and Aquarius.
For the Earth signs…
- Taurus gets along best with Capricorn, Pisces, Virgo, Cancer.
- Virgo gets along best with Taurus, Capricorn, and Cancer.
- Capricorn gets along best with Taurus, Virgo, Pisces, and Scorpio.
Many of us don’t know the time of birth of our furry friends so pulling a full chart may be tough and we rarely know the location which pulling the Moon sign would require. However, if you can make an accurate approximation, the Moon sign can give you great insight into the emotional needs of your pet so you can give them the TLC they really need.
Perhaps this could help you if you’re thinking of becoming a pet owner and wanting a certain energy level that matches yours or will inspire you to be more active. Now when your dog avoids large crowds or your cat runs toward the window every time a bird flies by, you can at least have a better understanding as to why.
If you don’t know your pet’s birthday, you can still take a good guess and pay attention to how the astrological events affect them. For example, they may be tired and snugly when the Moon is in a Water sign or full of life and energetic when the Moon is in a Fire sign. They may be emotional, moody, or even stubborn just like us based on the Moon so keep an eye out for how their mood shifts with the Moon and it may just help you understand astrology better!
It may be fun to look up your pet’s Chinese Zodiac sign or numerology as well. Keep in mind the Chinese new year is not the same date as the western new year. Perhaps there is a crystal that would help your dog based on their zodiac sign. They do make adorable crystal pet collar charms. Finally, don’t forget to look up your pet’s daily horoscope.

It’s that exciting time of the week where somewhere in the far-flung corners of the Universe one of our beloved planets has decided to provide some new and wonderful energies for us.
On November 1st, we have Venus entering Sagittarius!
So, what does this mean? As the planet of love and beauty, Venus makes herself known throughout the signs and impacts our relationships with others and self-image and love for oneself. Having just moved out of the intense Scorpio, Venus in Sagittarius allows a little more buoyancy. In Venus in Scorpio, relationships are often very fixed and dedicated entirely to one person or thing; with Venus in Sagittarius, we have more of a ‘universal’ love.
This can manifest in pondering our relationships with the wider world and wondering what our own role in it is. This can also lead to greater compassion and empathy with others, the planet, and the animals. While Venus in Scorpio often presents complexities in the area of love, Venus in Sagittarius brings a more straightforward approach. We see what needs doing and we go out and do it; and with the fire energy of Sagittarius, we find ourselves more productive and with greater energy than usual.
Now comes the time to see how we can use a Tarot card reading to benefit us during this time. How can the energies of Venus in Sagittarius benefit us? We might know that this pairing creates opportunities for universal love, but how can we apply this to our practical and daily lives? Online Tarot can certainly provide us with insight, but looking at specific Tarot card meanings to see how they can shape our future can really provide us with some fabulous insight during Venus’ stint in this fire sign. So, without further ado, below is a 4-card Tarot reading designed to help you gain greater inspiration from this Venus in Sagittarius!
This reading helps you to understand what drives your heart and how you can expand this passion.

Lay out the 4-card spread, letting one card fall into each position.
Card 1: 2 of Cups
A relationship or friendship with another is my overall passion at this time. As we’re asking about Venus in Sagittarius and expansion, this card may be indicating that it’s time to move beyond the 2 of Cups – which usually indicates the beginning or early stages of a relationship – and move onto the 3 of Cups, which signifies a deeper connection.
Card 2: The High Priestess
This is an interesting card to get in the position of how I can nurture this passion. It indicates that it’s time to go ‘deeper’ with this relationship; that it may be time for some deep conversations or spending time together in a way that is helpful to us getting to know one another on a deeper level. It can also show us that exploring a range of passions we may allow us to share with the world at large and therefore, work together to take action on them.
Card 3: Queen of Swords
In this position, I would take the Queen of Swords to be either myself or the other person. Someone doesn’t want to let their guard down and get closer to the other. They may have been hurt in the past and are unwilling to open up too deeply for fear of being hurt again; The Queen of Swords is someone who uses her mind to deal with situations. She can come across as cold sometimes, even if she doesn’t mean to. This tells me that this can present an obstacle to nurturing this passion.
Card 4: The Moon
In the position representing my strengths, I take the Moon to mean that I have a strong imagination and I can find a way to work around these obstacles. The Moon is a card of enchantment, imagination, and fascination with the shadow side. A desire to dig deep and get to the heart of the matter can help me forge a closer bond with the object of my desire and overcome the obstacle of the Queen of Swords.

There are many different parts to a natal chart governing every facet of your life in astrology. You may get started focusing on things like which of the astrology signs your Sun or Moon fall in, or love and money, but most of us quickly start to ask if astrology can help us figure out what we should be doing with our lives. What’s your purpose and potential, and where can you find your ultimate fulfillment and happiness? The answer is usually found with the Lunar Nodes.
To get technical, the Lunar Nodes in astrology are the points in the Moon’s orbit where the Moon crosses the ecliptic (the path of the Sun). They’re not actual physical bodies, and instead, are imaginary points on an imaginary line. There are two Lunar Nodes, a North Node and a South Node. They exactly oppose one another in the zodiac, so if you know the position of one Lunar Node, you know the position of the other. Here are the opposing astrology signs:
- Aries opposes Libra
- Taurus opposes Scorpio
- Gemini opposes Sagittarius
- Cancer opposes Capricorn
- Leo opposes Aquarius
- Virgo opposes Pisces
So, if your North Node is in Gemini, your South Node is in Sagittarius; if your North Node is in Pisces, your South Node is in Virgo; and on and on. Here are the opposing astrology houses:
- 1st house opposes 7th house
- 2nd house opposes 8th house
- 3rd house opposes 9th house
- 4th house opposes 10th house
- 5th house opposes 11th house
- 6th house opposes 12th house
So, if your North Node is in the 2nd house, your South Node is in the 8th house; if your North Node is in the 11th house, your South Node is in the 5th house; and on and on.
There are also two different positions for the Lunar Nodes, True and Mean. True Nodes are the exact position while Mean Nodes are the averaged-out position (since the movement can be a bit wobbly). They’re usually not far apart though; in the rare cases where they may be in different signs, you can assess both and see which fits best for you (I find the True position tends to be the one that does). You’ll often see the True Node position is the North Node position.

North Node vs. South Node
The North Node is also known as the dragon’s head because it symbolizes where you’re going. The North Node is your potential in this life, what you’re capable of, and where you can find your ultimate happiness and fulfillment.
The problem with the North Node is this is energy that we haven’t learned yet. It’s the future, it’s what’s possible, which makes it the unknown and unfamiliar. This unfamiliarity makes the North Node uncomfortable, especially in your younger years. The goal is to start learning the North Node as you get older and manifest this position in your life to help you find the path you’re supposed to be on. You have to push through the discomfort first though, and force yourself into the unknown so your soul can grow.
The South Node is also known as the dragon’s tail because it symbolizes the past, and what’s brought into this life. The South Node is what you already know, what you’ve already learned, and what is deeply embedded in your soul and your subconscious.
The problem with the South Node is this is energy that is so familiar, so comfortable, that it can become an emotional crutch or bad habit that you fall back to in times of stress and emotional duress. When you’re in a bad spot in your life, you’ll most likely fall back to the South Node, but this can become an unhealthy cycle that has to be broken. There is usually baggage associated with your South Node from past lives or from early in this life. The goal is to pull away from using your South Node as a crutch, and instead use it as a foundation to build toward your North Node.
Transits & Nodes
The Lunar Nodes aren’t easy positions to get right, but they are absolutely worth the effort. The more you manifest them properly, the easier life can get, and the happier and more fulfilled you can be.
Transit aspects to your Lunar Nodes can open you up more (sextiles and trines) or make clear blocks and challenges that need to be worked through in order to manifest your Lunar Nodes (squares). A transit planet conjunct your North Node can push you to embrace that uncomfortable energy and move toward your purpose, while a transit planet conjunct your South Node can push you to release baggage and confront bad habits or crutches that aren’t serving you in a positive way.
Aspects in your natal chart to your natal Lunar Nodes can also impact your ability to manifest your Lunar Nodes. The most important aspects will be planets conjunct either your North Node (which are a part of your potential) or your South Node (which are a part of your baggage and crutches). You’ll first assess the sign and house placements for your Lunar Nodes, and then consider the planets involved.

Lunar Nodes in the Astrology Signs
Aries North Node, Libra South Node
Your Aries North Node wants you to get out there and be assertive. Go for what you want! You don’t have to wait for anyone to give you permission. You’re meant to forge your own path and go through life enthusiastically. You may shy away from this until you learn how to take initiative and stand up for yourself and your own desires.
Your Libra South Node shows that you’re someone who is likely very considerate of others—TOO considerate! This may get in the way of allowing yourself to go forward with what you really want because you don’t want to upset anyone. You may feel that you have to do everything with someone by your side, and are uncomfortable alone but you should focus on making sure the people around you are supportive of your dreams and help boost your confidence so you can fly on your own.
Taurus North Node, Scorpio South Node
Your Taurus North Node wants you to do one thing – relax! Taurus North Nodes are meant to learn to take it easy. Taurus is the sign of the present, the chill, the slow-and-steady, so you can slow things down, take a beat, and not rush into anything. Confidence can go a long way for you, along with understanding your values in life. You may feel you need to push things until you learn how to stay calm.
Your Scorpio South Node shows that you’re someone who is likely deeply passionate and intense, at times obsessive and controlling, and you throw yourself into everything with gusto. There can be difficulty in learning how to take a step back, calm your extreme emotions, and not feel so wrapped up in what you’re doing or who you’re helping. The goal for you is not to get rid of the passionate energy inside of you, but rather to calm yourself enough to channel that passion in productive ways, controlling it rather than letting it control you. This can make you a powerful force!
Gemini North Node, Sagittarius South Node
Your Gemini North Node wants you to focus more on your own mind and way of expressing yourself. Expression and open communication may be crucial for you, and without that, you may feel you’re always being stifled subconsciously. Connecting with the world around you can be beneficial for you, and learning more about it, taking in more facts, and pursuing your interests. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it’s food for the Gemini North Node!
Your Sagittarius South Node shows that you’re someone who already knows how to think big and see the big picture, but you may get lost in that big picture at times, and have a hard time seeing the smaller picture, the details, and life in the short-term. That prevents you from being able to accomplish much, and you may be all talk, no walk at times because of it. Get into the smaller picture and don’t be afraid of shrinking your world. In your case, it may be what expands it.
Cancer North Node, Capricorn South Node
Your Cancer North Node wants you to embrace being the nurturing, supportive, caring soul that you can be. Cancer is the sign of emotion and support, so you can be an incredibly emotionally supportive person with your loved ones. You’re someone who can take care of the needs of others, and feel good about yourself in doing so. This can go two ways, and the support you give to others can come back to you, and help you feel confident and secure in your life.
Your Capricorn South Node shows that you’re someone who knows how to focus on the external, on your goals and ambitions, and how to take responsibility and do things yourself. This can become an issue when you don’t know how to rely on others, how to trust others, and when you’re going through life all alone because you’re afraid of connecting emotionally and feel others won’t get things done right anyway. You have to learn how to connect more to your emotions and the emotions of others, and how to be vulnerable.
Leo North Node, Aquarius South Node
Your Leo North Node wants you to focus on your own path. Leo is a highly creative sign, so this may be a creative path, and no matter what, it’s a path where you’re meant to shine. You’re capable of great generosity, friendliness, and fire, and you can get attention for just being you. You may feel resistant to showing your true self though until you develop some solid self-esteem and recognize the importance of being yourself.
Your Aquarius South Node shows that you’re someone who is highly independent, a unique spirit, who isn’t afraid of being different and unconventional but this may be used as a way of keeping people at a distance, worried about them breaking your heart. You’re someone who is capable of being all heart, leading a heart-centric life, and this is where you can find your happiness. Don’t worry so much about what others think and focus more on what makes YOU happy.
Virgo North Node, Pisces South Node
Your Virgo North Node wants you to get focused. Virgos are a practical, detail-oriented sign. You’re meant to carefully craft plans and gather information and then take action to make it happen. Get organized, make lists, and follow a routine. Stick with it, take care of yourself, and get to the work of life.
Your Pisces South Node shows that you’re someone who has a strong spiritual side, an active imagination, and can get lost in daydreams. This can keep you from getting down to business and getting things done, so you wander from one thing to the next aimlessly and may be easily pushed around by others as a result. Don’t just let your life be nothing but dreams and fantasies. Take some control and make them real.
Libra North Node, Aries South Node
Your Libra North Node wants you to find some balance in this life. Balance can be incredibly important for you and it may feel like your life is a quest for balance. You can learn how to be charming, pleasant, mediating, and diplomatic, and can softly get people to your side rather than pushing in a hard way. You may shy away from others at first though, and have to learn to work with others, trust others, and commit to others.
Your Aries South Node shows that you’re someone who knows how to do things on your own, is independent, assertive, takes initiative, and pushes for what you want. This may mean you do everything alone and have difficulty connecting with others. You may fear losing your independence and the inability to pursue your own desires. Interdependence is the key for you, and cultivating relationships that are balanced and rooted in mutual respect. Having that gives you the ultimate sense of satisfaction in life.
Scorpio North Node, Taurus South Node
Your Scorpio North Node wants you to transform. Scorpio is the sign of transformation, and this North Node usually means you have to undergo a massive transformation or many smaller ones in your life in order to find your fulfillment. You’re meant to shed what no longer serves you positively, and dig deeper inside of yourself to understand what you hold inside. Find your passion, your power, and your intensity.
Your Taurus South Node shows that you’re someone who knows that you want to accumulate things but may not know how exactly to do that, or may lack the motivation to get up and get moving to make it happen. In part, this may be because accumulation isn’t supposed to be your sole goal in life. You’re meant to go beyond that, but you may have to let go of being stubborn and stuck. Holding on to everything might feel comfortable and safe, but it won’t make you feel fulfilled.
Sagittarius North Node, Gemini South Node
Your Sagittarius North Node wants you to break free. Sagittarius is the sign of freedom and expansion, so you’re meant to get out into the world and experience life for yourself. Gain wisdom through life experience, travel and learn, and teach what you know. The pursuit of truth can be a noble one for you.
Your Gemini South Node shows that you’re someone who knows how to process the details, the facts, and the information, but may have a hard time putting that together with the big picture. You can become interested in lots of different subjects and ideas but may not stick with anything very long to gain real expertise. You may keep your life small, wanting to live in a little world, but you won’t find fulfillment that way. You need to be bold, daring, and GO!
Capricorn North Node, Cancer South Node
Your Capricorn North Node wants you to focus on creating something externally and pushing for goals and ambitions. You can accomplish a great deal in your life and can be looked up to as a result. You can manage responsibilities, take control of situations, and go higher. You may be afraid of these things at times though and may need to improve confidence and security to allow yourself to keep going forward.
Your Cancer South Node shows that you’re someone who is connected to your emotions and can crave lots of emotional support and encouragement from others. This may get in the way of focusing on what you want to achieve in life, and you may shy away from pushing toward your goals out of fear of the responsibilities that would come with it. Yet you can handle the responsibilities if you believe in yourself. Focus on moving forward, and don’t get stuck in the emotional past.
Aquarius North Node, Leo South Node
Your Aquarius North Node wants you to focus on your dreams for the future. You may have big dreams, but you can hold yourself back from attempting to pursue them. Let go of the fear and let yourself go for those big dreams you have. You’re capable of shaping the future for yourself and for the world and can embrace your individuality and eccentricities. Be the rebel!
Your Leo South Node shows that you’re someone who is highly creative and can express yourself through creative avenues. You may be more focused on your ego needs, and this may keep you from going against the grain, afraid of what others may say. You need to focus more on what’s right and what your purpose is. Allow yourself to stand out by being yourself and allow others to be themselves too.
Pisces North Node, Virgo South Node
Your Pisces South Node wants you to get in tune with your soul. You’re capable of being extremely compassionate, imaginative, and highly intuitive. You can help others with a gentle touch, and your empathy can be of help in dealing with others. There may be a major release at some point in your life, and this allows you to grow and evolve in big ways.
Your Virgo North Node shows that you’re someone who is detailed, always focused on the little things, and wants to stick to a rigid schedule. You have to learn to let go, let loose, and go with the flow more. If you don’t, you can stress yourself into sickness. Try not to put so many rules around your imagination or intuition, and this can help you feel more fulfilled.
Lunar Nodes in the Astrology Houses
1st House North Node, 7th House South Node
Your 1st house North Node wants you to do more on your own and not rely on others so much. You’re someone who actually has a great deal of luck on your side (North Node in the 1st house is one of the luckiest positions!), but you have to embrace what you want for yourself and be willing to blaze new trails and be the pioneering spirit you can be.
Your 7th house South Node shows that you’re someone who can strike a balance, keep the peace, and maintain harmony in your life, but this may be because you’re afraid of disruption. You don’t want to cause any problems for anyone and may be desperate for company, which makes you sacrifice your own wants and needs. You already know how to operate in partnerships and with others, so you need to learn how to operate alone.
2nd House North Node, 8th House South Node
Your 2nd house North Node wants you to cultivate your own resources, your own values, and your own self-esteem. There may be a tendency to look more toward others for these things, but you’re meant to rely on yourself for the things you want and need in this life and share that with others in a positive way.
Your 8th house South Node shows that you’re someone who understands power, control and using the resources of others, and this can create intensity, struggles over power and control, and a tendency to get sucked into drama. This position tends to come with some early life trauma that needs to be addressed before you can move away from the darkness of the 8th house and toward the lighter energy of the 2nd house.
3rd House North Node, 9th House South Node
Your 3rd house North Node wants you to connect with your immediate environment – the people you’re around all of the time, the places you’re in all of the time, and the community you live in. You may feel a tendency to want to run far and wide, but this can keep you from feeling fulfilled. Stay in the smaller zone, and use your mind to help you see how the big picture is really just a lot of little pictures combined.
Your 9th house South Node shows that you’re someone who loves freedom, space, travel, and expansion, but this may become a crutch. You may run away from situations or people you don’t want to deal with instead of staying put, and staying put is what you need to do. Use your knowledge and wisdom to come up with solutions and find ways out of problems instead of running away from them.
4th House North Node, 10th House South Node
Your 4th house North Node wants you to focus on your internal foundation. You’re meant to get down into your roots, into your core, and strengthen yourself internally. This allows you to have greater emotional security and stability, and you can be more supportive and nurturing of others. You can build your life on this solid foundation, and feel yourself grow.
Your 10th house South Node shows that you’re someone who may search for success in life, and while you may find it at times, it can feel empty and meaningless without the rich personal connections that you need. You likely have to stop looking externally for validation, for recognition, for security, and turn inward. This can give you the true security that you’re looking for.
5th House North Node, 11th House South Node
Your 5th house North Node wants you to express yourself openly. This may be creatively, and you may even get some attention for it. This may worry you, and you may shy away from anything that could get your attention in your younger years, but you have to learn to not be afraid. Believe in yourself enough to let everyone see your light.
Your 11th house South Node shows that you’re someone who feels very comfortable in a crowd, but this may come at the expense of showing yourself as an individual. You may worry about what others think of you too much, and have to focus more on what you think of you. Focusing on yourself isn’t selfish if you use your own light to light up the lives of others. This is something you can do for the world.
6th House North Node, 12th House South Node
Your 6th house North Node wants you to focus on work and service. You may feel that being of service means sacrificing yourself, but in your case, it means more tangibly being of service to others. Getting things done, being practical and detailed, and maintaining organization and routine can get you on the right path. Fulfilling work (whether work that pays or work that doesn’t) is a part of that.
Your 12th house South Node shows that you’re someone who is deeply connected to your subconscious mind, imagination, and spirit. This can make you prone to escapism, and you may struggle with the daily realities of life. You need to use your intuition to your advantage, and trust your instincts as you get out into the physical world. The 12th house also likes to hide energy, so you may not be fully aware consciously of baggage, crutches, and bad habits that are tied to your South Node. You have to eliminate the fog to see what’s hiding there.
7th House North Node, 1st House South Node
Your 7th house North Node wants you to connect with others. You can accomplish more in your life with others than alone, and you may find yourself through the connections you make with others. Commitment may seem a little scary to you at times, but it can lead you to find the peace and satisfaction you need.
Your 1st house South Node shows that you’re someone who is independent and feels that having a solid sense of self is important. It is important, but this may be used as a defence mechanism to keep people at a distance. You need to learn to embrace your identity in every way, not just by yourself but within your relationships as well, and find all of the different sides to you.
8th House North Node, 2nd House South Node
Your 8th house North Node wants you to go beyond the physical. The 8th house naturally connects to Scorpio and Pluto, and transforming becomes important with this house. You have to transform what you value to go beyond what you own or physical resources and elevate to find value in people and knowledge.
Your 2nd house South Node shows that you’re someone who knows how to relax, take your time, and not push for anything, but this may give you an inability to really find solutions to challenges or to approach serious matters with the right attitude. You may focus more on yourself, what you have, and not share with others, but you should share what you have. Sharing, transforming, and finding passion can help you to evolve.
9th House North Node, 3rd House South Node
Your 9th house North Node wants you to expand your life and mind. Learn more about the world to expand your view, travel and experience life to enhance your own, and share the wisdom you can accumulate, putting your new perspectives out into the world. You can be a wonderful teacher, philosopher, and story-teller.
Your 3rd house South Node shows that you’re someone who is connected to your immediate environment and may feel that life is safest spent that way. You may not find fulfillment until you open your life up to the world, and not get so caught up in the little details. Think bigger, think brighter, and be an adventurer.
10th House North Node, 4th House South Node
Your 10th house North Node wants you to focus on your goals, your ambitions, and what you strive for in life. You can accomplish and succeed and can get recognition and respect. Show the world your talents, and let everyone give you the attention for the hard work that you deserve.
Your 4th house South Node shows that you’re someone who may lean back on your personal life, wanting to spend your time focused on the home, family, comfort, and support. Having a good personal life and being a nurturing person aren’t bad things, but you may rely on them too much because you’re afraid of sharing your talents and goals with the world. You may feel that’s being selfish, and that you should only focus on others but for you, focusing on your goals is what allows you to feel fulfilled.
11th House North Node, 5th House South Node
Your 11th house North Node wants you to pursue a cause, champion what you believe in, and make your mark on the world in your own unique way. You’re meant to do something beyond yourself, something that will last for generations to come, and that improves all of life. For some, this may mean something big, and for others, this may mean in a small way. Every little way matters and you can use your dreams to benefit the world.
Your 5th house South Node shows that you’re someone who is creative and heart-centric, which are good things until you use them as an excuse to not pursue a higher purpose. You may crave praise and approval, always in search of love and acceptance, but you’re someone who needs to be more independent. Don’t rely on others to fill your heart so much. Make yourself whole by benefiting the whole.
12th House North Node, 6th House South Node
Your 12th house North Node wants you to let go of baggage and embrace the good in your life. You can develop strong intuition to help guide you through challenges, and you can use compassion and empathy to help you manage others. Your imagination can be active, and you can use this to help you find the positives. The 12th house hides energy, so you may have difficulty actually understanding what your purpose is in life consciously. Releasing is incredibly important, letting go of baggage and moving on from the past, and connecting more to your subconscious to get on the right path.
Your 6th house South Node shows that you’re someone who strives to be practical and get things done. This can be helpful, but not if you’re ignoring your imagination and spiritual needs as a result. You may be too critical, especially of yourself, and need to learn to go easier on yourself. Connect to your subconscious, to the quiet space within, and let the nagging voice fade away.

Lunar Nodes & Your Natal Planets
To deepen your understanding of your Lunar Nodes, you can also evaluate your natal planets in relation to your Lunar Nodes. Planets that are conjunct can be important players in your life and purpose. Know that with the Lunar Nodes, you only need to look at planets that are in the same sign as your North or South Node and not the actual degree and distance. Sometimes it’ll matter with the conjunction if the planet isn’t in the same sign, but still close (within a few degrees). For the most part, you should just consider the sign placements.
Let’s review the planets conjunct your Lunar Nodes:
Sun & the Nodes
When the Sun is conjunct your North Node, you can find it easier to identify with the energy of your North Node, and manifest your true purpose. The uncomfortable energy most of us feel isn’t so present for you. When the Sun is conjunct your South Node, you may identify too strongly with your South Node, and fall back on bad habits too easily. You have to work harder at letting go of those bad habits and work on not being your own worst enemy.
Moon & the Nodes
When the Moon is conjunct your North Node, you can also find it easier to identify with the energy of your North Node because it’s emotionally comfortable to you. You may be capable of being a great nurturer and supporter of others and can do more when you feel emotionally supported. When the Moon is conjunct your South Node, you may fall back on emotional crutches far too easily when you’re upset. This can make you self-destructive, and you have to work on finding healthy emotional outlets.
Mercury & the Nodes
When Mercury is conjunct your North Node, your mind can be a great asset to you, and you can focus on pursuing your ideas and plans. Embracing your mind, your perceptions, and your views can give you a boost. When Mercury is conjunct your South Node, you can fall back on your mind too much, overthinking, overanalyzing, and getting stuck in your head. You need to work on getting out of your head and giving your mental energy-positive outlets.
Venus & the Nodes
When Venus is conjunct your North Node, your connections with others can be a great asset to you, and you can do well with others and accomplish more when feeling confident. You may find yourself through relationships and connect to your physical self. When Venus is conjunct your South Node, relationship baggage may be a problem, and you may struggle with being stuck and stubborn. You have to work on having healthy connections and get moving.
Mars & the Nodes
When Mars is conjunct your North Node, your assertiveness can be an asset. You can take action for what you want, and you can move independently. Finding your purpose is something you can be driven to do. When Mars is conjunct your South Node, you may fall back to anger and aggression when stressed or upset. You can give in to impulse and impatience, but this just creates more problems. You have to work on having healthy outlets for your energy.
Jupiter & the Nodes
When Jupiter is conjunct your North Node, you can benefit from expansion and exploration, and opportunities can come your way with greater ease. The more you focus on your purpose, the more you can discover new opportunities in life. When Jupiter is conjunct your South Node, you may fall deeper when you fall back to your bad habits and crutches, and you can make big problems bigger problems. When you take action to improve, this can go more easily for you, so it’s a matter of taking that action and not being lazy.
Saturn & the Nodes
When Saturn is conjunct your North Node, you can accomplish a great deal in your life, but this usually comes later in life after you’ve learned all of your lessons first. Once you do, you can be seen as an authority figure, given lots of respect and recognition. When Saturn is conjunct your South Node, you may struggle under the weight of responsibilities, especially earlier in life. When you fall to bad habits and crutches, you can be punished by Saturn, so you have to make sure you don’t no matter what is happening.
Uranus & the Nodes
When Uranus is conjunct your North Node, you can be a super individual, independent, and unconventional. You can go about pursuing your purpose in your own way, and your purpose is likely different in some way. When Uranus is conjunct your South Node, you may behave erratically or impulsively when stressed and upset, which can lead to further problems. You need to control that and channel rebellion productively.
Neptune & the Nodes
When Neptune is conjunct your North Node, you can let your intuition be your guide, and it can be an incredible guide for you. Establishing some boundaries may be needed for you in order to fully follow your purpose. When Neptune is conjunct your South Node, boundaries are incredibly important for you as you may give way too much away to others as a default position when stressed or upset. You can easily be manipulated or taken advantage of, and you need to have those boundaries to protect yourself.

When Pluto is conjunct your North Node, you can be seen as a powerful person, someone formidable and strong as you pursue your purpose. You may need to find your own power and take control of your life in order to get on the right path, and a major transformation may be needed first. When Pluto is conjunct your South Node, this tends to come with some major baggage that has to be worked on and let go of, otherwise, it can weigh down your life significantly. You may be dragged into problems until you take back your power.
The Lunar Nodes can be complicated, full of challenges, but ultimately are one of the most important aspects of astrology you can focus on. So much can be learned about your baggage, potential, and purpose from your Lunar Nodes. Let them be the start of your astrological journey of growth!

When it comes to love and romance, in our field of work there are levels.
It’s not that there is one level better than the other, it is that there are just… different levels. Soul mate love and twin flame love are the kinds of love that are considered to be the highest echelon of unconditional love. Especially since you have to admit, love is hard to find no matter what level it is today. To find soul mate love, even more, rare and more difficult but one thing we do know for sure is that it IS out there for each and every one of us.
Many of us look for our twin flames in search of this highest echelon of love, but knowing it has happened is a lot different than just wondering it is out there. It IS out there, that is always a given. Whether or not it has happened depends on your individual situation. So today, since the twin flame number is 11, and we are in the eleventh month of the year, we are going to look at the numerology master number 11, and indicate some everyday signs you have found your twin flame.

Twin Flames, Numerology & the Number 11
In the field of numerology, we have numbers from 1 to 9 that are the standard numerology numbers. In addition to that, we have the master numbers 11, 22, and 33. Master numbers are the numbers that hold the highest level of spiritual vibrations, and help us to not only reach our goals but also help us to reach them at the highest level of spiritual enlightenment.
The master numbers all mean different things, but the master number 11 is especially important when it comes to romance and the highest level of romance we call twin flames.
This is the combination of two number 1s, with each party in a twin flame union representing a 1. So one of the first signs you will hear of when it comes to everyday twin flame signs is the number 11:11. You will usually see this on a clock, but could also see that on addresses, phone numbers, anything. If you see the combination of 1111 in your every day, the angels are sending you a message that your twin flame is near or praying for you or thinking of you.
If you see this number or sign, you will be resonating at a high spiritual elevation, or your twin flame is and is trying to send you a message. Pay attention to their thoughts, particularly if you can hear their voice. Telepathy is very common among twin flames, and they may be talking to you without you even knowing it, or without knowing that you can hear them. It happens all the time.
When you see 11:11, spirit is nudging you towards some high-level love stuff! It’s very exciting. Now onto more looks at what a twin flame is.

What is a Twin Flame?
A twin flame is the literal other half of you.
If you know the “you complete me” line from a movie, then you know that that means. At the beginning of your lifetime journey, you were amongst other souls in your soul circle, usually about 40 to 50 of them. Each of them is one of your soul mates, and you will meet them on and off throughout your various lifetimes. It is rare to see them all in one lifetime, but it’s been known to happen.
Your twin flame was there too but was literally the other half of you that split off to form their own soul journey. You actually share the same soul mates with each other. So if you’ve found your twin flame, and you both feel the same great love for some of your mutual friends, then you know that person is also probably part of your soul circle.
At one point in this soul circle, you all went off to your own journeys to live your blueprint and experience the lifetimes you needed to experience to learn, make mistakes, and progress towards complete enlightenment. Your twin flame was literally your other half, and then split from you to do the same. This lifetime you have now is one section of that blueprint.
So you can imagine that a number of intense feelings arise if your twin flame comes to you in this lifetime. That’s because when you meet them, or any member of your soul circle, intense feelings come up and they are usually good. You will instantly have soft spots of unconditional love for these folks, even if they don’t stay in your life forever. It is a non-judgemental kind of unconditional love.
That love stays between you and your soul mates no matter what happens in this lifetime. The twin flame relationship is a bit more complex, and thus more complicated. You are meant to see and learn from them to grow, and they are from you as well. Sadly, there is more time apart in your lifetime than with your twin flame. Even so, they are the kind of person in your life that one taste of them keeps you going on the plane of unconditional love for years, decades even.
Fun fact: Intense friendships are also known in twin flames (even if the relationship isn’t romantic or sexual).
Twin flames are also usually romantic interests in your life, and your sexual chemistry is out of this world because they are on exactly the same place spiritually as you. You can’t keep your hands off each other. It’s even been known that you can feel them being sexual from countries away. This is how intense this connection is, you love that feeling. It is this kind of physical telepathy that keeps that love going for you. You can handle separation because you know they are thinking of you no matter what is going on with them, or who is in their life.
Let’s have a look at 11 common signs that are tipping you off to your twin flame.
11 Signs You’ve Found Your Twin Flame
Since twin flames use the signal 11:11 to send telepathic messages to each other, we will introduce you to 11 basic every day signs or feelings that you know you have seen or met your twin flame.
1. You hear their voice in your head.
You may not have met them but if you have, and you hear their voice in your head as if they are talking to you, they might just be! They may be looking at a picture of you or thinking of you and all of a sudden you hear them say something to you. That’s telepathy, even if you don’t realize it’s happening.
2. Time stands still.
20 years could pass and when you see each other again you will pick up like nothing happened.
3. Instant chemistry.
When you think of them, your first thoughts are usually sexual, almost tantric. It’s frustrating and lovely all at the same time.
4. You just get them.
In a way nobody does, and there’s little to say above that as it is difficult to explain. You understand their pain because as their twin, you’ve felt it.
5. Nothing can stand between you two.
Fighting with them can be awful, but the making up is beautiful. Forgiveness comes in a snap because it is true unconditional love between you two.
6. The numbers 11:11 or 1111.
You see 11:11 and 1111 around a lot. They are praying for you or wishing on you. This is usually more obvious when you are in a rough patch. If you see 11:11 on the clocks or other formats during a dark period, they feel pain somewhere in the world and know they are connected to it somehow and are praying for you.
7. You have a lot in common, and weirdly so.
When you are together you finish each other’s sentences because you can almost read their thoughts. You like the same things, weirdly. You may have just bought a book they bought as well for example. There are a lot of weird synchronicities or coincidences with each other because you are literally the same person, just split into two bodies.
8. You learn from them.
And they become better people with you too. One of the reasons for twin flames is to grow. So if you’ve heard people say, “I am a better man with her in my life” that is a cue of a twin flame. You learn from them spiritually and become better people just knowing them as well.
9. You share dreams.
One way our twin flames communicate with us is in our dream periods at night. You may have a lot of dreams of them, and they will have a lot of you as well.
10. You have similar fears and paranoias.
Especially when it comes to love. If you are the jealous type, they will be too. If you have a bunch of insecurities, they will too. Growing through these together is an unbelievable and amazing experience.
You sense when they are physically close to you. It’s called situational awareness. If they are in the same city as you, you may not be able to stop thinking of them that day and not really be sure why. It’s wonderful and awkward at the same time.
And, as we are in the throes of a Mercury retrograde, you can expect we are going to be feeling these signs more.
