The days grow shorter as they get colder. Everyone is preparing for the holidays. This is a month of gratitude for everything that has transpired throughout the year. As we get closer to finishing the year, reflection starts to set in. What are we truly thankful for? Did we accomplish everything we set out to do this year? As the days get colder our, minds wander to our personal relationships. Are we even happy being around the people in our circles? November’s astrological report will offer guidance on how to take the current shifting energies of the universe and turn them your way through the simple act of feeling grateful.
Full moon: bringing gratitude for life’s unwelcome lessons
November 4th is the full moon in Taurus. This moon brings to our attention our comfort levels– Our home, our work, our money. It also speaks to our love life and our physical abilities. This moon will help everyone break free from their comfort levels. At times, being too comfortable makes you stagnate, not allowing you to move forward. This is the when victim mentality sets in, which is never a good thing. Once you have victimized yourself it’s hard to break free. Self-victimization provides so much comfort by expecting others to make you feel better about yourself.
Instead of falling victim to these dark feelings, step outside of yourself and see the positive in your life. Allow this full moon to help you learn to be thankful for life lessons. Practice gratitude with this Taurus full moon. Make yourself a great feast, go outside and enjoy the cold crisp air, look at those you truly love and be thankful for everything. If you feel unhappy with your life, this is the moon to break free and take steps to materialize the life you truly want. Don’t let your mind trick you, but let your heart guide you with this moon.
New Moon: Reigniting faith through gratitude
On November 18th the new moon in Scorpio will bring up our deep wants– Passion. Ambition. Secrets. Sex. Our subconscious will materialize in our waking life. You may feel slightly insane because you thought these were things only you knew about, but this is the universe showing you, you can’t keep repressing your feelings. Remember, Scorpio is a water sign and when emotions do get the best of you with this Scorpio moon, and this where that tail comes out to sting. Don’t be vindictive with this new moon. Put your negativity to the side and search for the positive feeling of what you want. Set your intentions. Light a black and red candle and envision all that you want. Allow the universe to bring you your wishes. Let go of control. Trust that your intention has been heard. Practice magic. Ask those who have crossed over to help with your intention.
This new moon will bring back your faith. It will show you that gratitude is the way to go. By always practicing to be grateful every day and night you will find it easy to wake the next day and enjoy your life. You won’t find things to be worried about. You won’t experience negativity. You will, in fact, find so many things to be thankful for you will ask yourself why you are so down to begin with.
Life is to meant to be joyful. To be experienced. To be lived. Not everyone gets to experience life to the fullest. Not everyone gets to spend the holidays with those they love. Be thankful for everything that you have. Practice gratitude every day and you will see how your world changes overnight.
