Finally, I’m back to writing again. Moving houses, eye surgery, dealing with inheritances and making time for selfcare, took way more weeks than expected. I was also lacking creativity. Good news: the creative juices are flowing again! Smoothies, yoga, running, a beautiful new apartment and reading novels helps with that. I’m not promising biweekly articles again, but you can expect to find new musings on this website on a more regular basis.
Thanks for sticking with me. Love you so much.
These horoscopes are written for your rising sign (ascendant), so I advice you to read the horoscope for you rising sign first. You can read the horoscope for your Sun sign for extra inspiration if you want.
These horoscopes are written for the Full Moon in Taurus on November 19th 09.59 am CET. These horoscopes take into account the new series of eclipses that takes place over the next 2 years. This Full Moon is a Lunar eclipse and marks the first of a series of eclipses in the Taurus – Scorpio axis that lasts until October 2023. The Lunar Nodes, now still in Gemini and Sagittarius, will change signs in January and enter Taurus and Scorpio. Eclipses take place when there is a Full Moon or New Moon near one of the Lunar Nodes. This Full Moon in Taurus takes place near the North Node that is still in Gemini. Eclipses mark (great) beginnings and endings in the signs and houses of your natal chart that they fall in. In other words, we can expect to see these beginnings and endings in the houses that Taurus and Scorpio are on in our natal charts.
The eclipse on November 19th takes place near the star Algol. This star is related to the mythology of Medusa. Medusa was a beautiful maiden and she was raped by Poseidon in the temple of Athena. Instead of punishing Poseidon, Athena punished Medusa by cursing her (turning her hair into snakes and cursing her eyes to turn every man who looked at her into stone). When later on Medusa was killed by Perseus, Athena would wear the head of Medusa on her breastplate. You can read more about Athena and Medusa over here. The story of the rape of Medusa and the betrayal by Athena is a story that came to life when patriarchy was installed.
Artist Luciano Garbati made a sculpture of ‘Medusa With the Head of Perseus’, instead of Perseus with the head of Medusa. It’s a tribute to the #metoo movement. It’s a powerful symbol.
This astrology definitely has an Algol signature, favouring Medusa over Perseus. This astrology is very much about ‘taking power back’. Becoming the Medusa of the statue, the one who claims the sword, instead the Medusa who remained a victim. That’s not to say that this is easygoing astrology. It’s intense, heavy and dense. To some it may feel dark. Algol is also known as the most evil star, as Ras Al Ghul or the Demon’s head. Tiredness, headaches and worries are also Algol’s signature.
The horoscopes are listed from Aries to Pisces
Dear Aries. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about your personal backpack and what’s inside that backpack. From your wallet with the monthly payouts and savings, to your clothing and sleeping bag, to the knowledge, gifts and skills that you may share with the world. What is your worth? Better question: what is your sense of self worth? Expect changes, hopefully increases, coming up when it comes to your worth (your self worth, the number on your bank account, the resume that expresses your value on the job market).
This 2 year long chapter is also about sharing all of that with the world. With whom do you share your money? With whom do you share your gifts and talents? Sharing is an act of intimacy. You don’t just give anyone access to your bank account. You don’t just give anyone access to yourself too. There needs to be a certain amount of trust, before you share certain items in your backpack.
Who do you want to collaborate with? Which collaborations have served their purpose and need to come to a close? Which collaborations are you letting go? Sometimes we are loyal for the sake of being loyal. Sometimes we stay in debt, while we actually don’t need to. Sometimes it’s just time to pay off that karmic debt or those credit card bills. You don’t want or need to carry certain debts or responsibilities till the end of times. So, what do you want to throw out of the backpack? And what do you want to carry in your backpack, and who do you want to share it all with?
Dear Taurus. This Full Moon eclipse in your sign marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about coming into your personal power. Sometimes we forget who we are. Sometimes we forget about our desires, our true loves, our passions. Sometimes we forget about our rights. Sometimes we forget about our gifts. And sometimes we forget about how fucking powerful, beautiful and awesome we are. Life’s lessons may not be easy, but they are served to teach you about you and your inner strength and resourcefulness.
This 2 year long chapter is also about breaking old relationship patterns (whether in love, business, family or friendships). You’ve come to realize or will soon realize that you don’t want to do certain relationships in a certain way anymore. The thing is: if you want to change the relationship dynamic, you’ll need to change yourself. You can’t change another person. You can change yourself (and the world will respond to that).
Remember who you are. Remember your desires, remember your worth, remember your gifts, remember your boundaries and remember your power. In the next 2 year you will find that you’ll come into fullness or completeness. It’s like the different parts of you, are finally coming together. Like an internal unification. It will increase your personal strength and sense of self.
Dear Gemini. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter of retreating. Retreating into the private chambers of your mind. Retreating into a monastery for spiritual practice. Retreating to write extensively in your dream diary. Retreating onto Freud’s sofa. Or maybe you actually will offer your therapeutic or spiritual services to a Shala, prison or other place that’s ‘outside society’. For some Twins this retreating will be a personal and private healing journey. For other Twins this retreating will be about spending time in institutions and being of service to others. Either way, meditation, solitude and spiritual practices may be exactly what you need. There’s some inner work that needs to be done.
This 2 year long chapter is also about healing old (spiritual, emotional, physical) wounds of yourself and/or others. It’s about de-traumatizing, it’s about turning wounds into scars and it’s about working with injuries. Healing practices are sacred. Being of service to others is sacred. Being of service to yourself is sacred too.
After 2 year of eclipses that took place in your sign, Gemini, you might actually be needing to do some healing work and retreating. So much has happened in the past 2 year. Now it’s time to digest it all.
Dear Cancer. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about the needs of the people, groups, friends and communities that you serve and are part of. You have some creative offerings to make, classes to teach, protests to march, or some other thing to do in order to make this world a better place. We’re not born on Earth solely to take from her and to experience pleasure. We also need to give something in return. Something to our people and something to our planet. It will make you’re a richer person. It’s just like prayer and visiting temples: offerings are made and blessings are bestowed. No blessings without offerings. If you make your offerings, you’ll receive blessings.
This 2 year long chapter is also about learning to make offerings without needing to sacrifice yourself. If you have creative projects to share with the world, you’ll need to keep the creative juices flowing. If you want to spread love within your community, you’ll need to make sure to experience love in some part of your personal life too. If you have classes to teach, you’ll also need to remember about the pleasure of being a student. If you have a protest to march, you don’t want to forget about the why and inspiration that drives you. You get the point…
In case the romantic, sexual or creative juices start to run dry… Try to find pleasure in the offerings that you need to make. It may sometimes feel like it’s more about the needs of others than about your own, in the next 2 years. But, you’ll find, that through attending to the needs of ‘your people’, you’ll be blessed in return.
Dear Leo. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about your legacy and public self. Expect some career changes and/or opportunities coming up (maybe sooner than you think) or at least some revelations about the offerings that you want to make to this world. How do you put your talents to work? What is the legacy that you’re building? What do you want to be known and seen for? What is meaningful work to you?
This 2 year long chapter is also about your history and your private self. As a tree grows higher, the roots need to become stronger. There’s still so much to learn about your inner self, your history and the more intimate realms of your world. In order to ‘go out there’, you also need a safe place to retreat. What homes and people make you feel safe? Who is family to you? What does attachment mean to you? What does intimacy mean to you? These are some questions to ponder on. You’re allowed to let some shit go, you’re allowed to do the healing work that’s needed. You’re allowed to confront your parents with their mistakes, even though no parenting job is ever perfect and doesn’t need to be.
A Leo needs to be seen. A Leo is here to show themselves. But showing yourself can be a scary thing. Honestly and openly showing yourself is an intimate and courageous act. It will come with gifts though. It’s the kind of courageous act that will be rewarded.
Dear Virgo. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about the larger systems of meaning in your life. For some of you these systems of meaning have to do with studies and learning about life. For others these systems are cultural or religious and maybe examined via travels to foreign places. For some it’s all about future dreams and making plans. A few of you may share your knowledge of the meaningful systems of this world through writing projects. Beginnings and endings considering studies / academics / travels / spirituality or religion / visions / publishing are on the horizon for you.
This 2 year long chapter is also about your day to day life. While the larger schemes and systems (like physics, religion, astrology, psychology etcetera) provide a framework of philosophical meaning, most of us actually experience meaning in day to day activities. It’s the daily rituals, the weekly meetings and the regular interactions that provide meaning in day to day life. Future plans become reality through day to day activities. In the next 2 years you will probably experience changes in the make up of your daily life. Changes in routines, like for example the travels to the office or your morning runs.
The astrology over the next 2 years will be supportive of letting go of old future plans and dreams that are no longer in alignment with your heart’s desires, and creating new future plans and dreams that do feel more aligned.
Dear Libra. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about your collaborations. You can expect some collaborations that are past their due date to end. You can expect that new important collaborations will emerge. Who are you going to share your talents, gifts and knowledge with? Who has something to offer to you that will enrich your life? Whether it’s about more intimate partnerships or work collaborations, some change is coming up. Be prepared to let go of what’s no longer in your service and be prepared to enter a collaboration that you didn’t see coming.
This 2 year long chapter is also about your livelihood. How do these collaborations support your sense of worth and value? How do these collaborations support your bank account and net worth? Fluctuations and changes in cash flow may come up. Neither ups or downs have anything to say about your personal worth, remember that.
What collaborations increase your experiences of fun and meaning in live? What collaborations bring you joy? What collaborations enrich your life in other ways than just financial? These are some question to ponder on with this Full Moon eclipse in Taurus.
Dear Scorpio. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about your important relationships. Some new relationships may enter your life quite soon and some existing ones may change shape and become more important or less important. Beginnings and endings in the realm of self and other. Who do you want to spend time with? Who wants you, needs you, desires you? Who are you ready to offer your time and energy to?
This 2 year long chapter is also about you, yourself. As your relationships change, you will change. Your identity may change, leaving one chapter and starting a new one. From single to partnered, from partnered to single. Becoming a parent, a wife or husband. Or maybe becoming a busines owner, teacher or something else. Your one on one relationships reflect certain parts of your identity. Your concept of self and your relationships will change and grow in the upcoming time.
It may not always be easy, the enhanced focus on an important other or important others. You might sometimes feel like you lack time for you and your own needs and desires. That will be temporary. You’ll probably learn a lot about yourself in the process and discover parts of yourself that you didn’t know were there. Growth through relationships, that’s what you will experience.
Dear Sagittarius. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about your work and / or health. You’re called to be of service to others and / or yourself. These 2 years are all about creating a new balance between work and rest, between service to others and service to yourself. There may be an increased focus on working on your career, and offering your services to those in need. Changes in your career may lie ahead and you might need to show up earlier and leave the office late. You may need to put in more hours than you have in recent years. However, the opposite may be equally true. If you have been working too hard in recent years, you may actually need to take more rest and invest in selfcare in the upcoming years. Breaks are allowed.
If not the office is calling for your attention, it might be your body. In the next 2 years you may develop new health care regimes, like adding new workouts to your calendar, becoming vegan or the like. This 2 year long chapter is also about making sure that you get rest in between the long hours at work and/or intense workouts. Your body needs time to heal after an intense yoga session. Your mind needs time to relax after a full day of work. Make sure you take your needed breaks. Rest, meditation and the like will help you in showing up as your best self at the office the next day. It will also help you to deal with and leave behind self-sabotaging behaviors (we all have those…).
The astrology of the upcoming 2 years is supportive of healing work. It might go with ups and downs, but in the end there’s health to gain. Keep making selfcare a priority.
Dear Capricorn. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about your pleasure and joy. What gives you life? What is beautiful to you? What is pleasurable to you? What is fun? What is art? What is romance? What is the good stuff in life? And… how do you create it? How do you create beauty, love, pleasure, art, etcetera. Your taste is about to develop. Your cravings are about to change. Your desires are about to rise. In the next 2 years you will want to invest in your pencils, records, dildos and chocolate sweets. Reminder: pleasure is often not something that you receive, it’s something that you create.
This 2 year long chapter is also about making sure that you create based on your own demand and not based on the demands of others. In market terms: sometimes products are created based on the demand, other times a new product is invented, placed on the market, and the demand will follow. You’ll want to create based on your own values, not based on what you think that others will want from you. Your fun, pleasure and excitement comes first. Others will follow you. Make your offerings to the world based on your own heart desires.
It’s time to make fun, pleasure and creativity a priority. Start dating yourself. Fall in love with yourself. Prioritize yourself.
Dear Aquarius. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about your home and heart. Change and new beginnings related to the topic ‘home’ are coming up for you. In the next 2 years you might decide to move houses or to renovate. Home, however, is not just about a house with an address. Home is also about family (genetic and/or chosen). Home is also where we feel at home; where we are safe and where we retreat. Home is sometimes something that we find and sometimes it is something we create. Home is also the heart, which we sometimes leave too vulnerable and at other times protect a little too much with too many walls.
This 2 year long chapter is also about exchanging time at work for time at home. Prioritizing the inner self over the outer self, the intimate over the public, inner work over career. One will serve the other though. The more at home you’ll feel in life, the more you’ll be able to flourish in the future. It’s time to grow some roots. Those branches with leaves will follow.
In the upcoming time the foundations of your life will be renovated. It may become a dirty process with lots of mud or dust. Some upheaval and changes are probably waiting for you. All with good purpose though. Those foundations are ready to get a make-over, even if you don’t realize it yet.
Dear Pisces. This Full Moon eclipse marks the start of a 2 year long chapter that is all about your communication / writing / teaching / study / research projects. You can expect endings and beginnings in this area of life. You might start a new habit like writing in a journal every day. Or you might actually finish a writing project that you started a while ago. You might finish your academic studies or you might start a teaching position somewhere.
This 2 year long chapter is also about exploring the world in other ways than through books, journals and the like. Whether it’s about far away travels or the daily commute between home and work, your movements in this world will probably change over the next 2 years.
This 2 year long chapter fits in this larger book called ‘life’. Even without major life events, in the upcoming time you’re called to reflect upon your future dreams and plans. Where do you want to go next? What future do you want to build? And what daily actions and rituals can support you in building that future? The upcoming astrology is supportive of rearranging your daily / weekly calendar in such a way that you can make time for those things that make you experience meaning in life.
