Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope for Nov. 2, 2017, #1174 | By Amy Elliott
Aries (March 20-April 19) — Be open to the possibilities in what someone is offering you, even if you don’t necessarily see or trust it entirely. Whatever opportunity now presents itself, you more than likely have the resources and capacity to meet it. This is no time for self-doubt, especially if it’s habitual. You have a chance to move in an environment where you can thrive and meet just the right kinds of people. Have faith in yourself, and take it up. Any assurances you feel are lacking will almost certainly follow. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“One’s relationship to change is the underlying reality that determines how one handles transits. This relationship counts for a lot now, and you would be wise to bring it to full awareness. What you’re currently experiencing is the culmination of six years of nonstop and ever-increasing energy. All of that has been excellent preparation. Now, you’re experiencing the actual threshold, the invocation of your new life.”
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — This week’s Full Moon in your sign is likely to help you understand something about yourself, and your power, that might have gone unnoticed in the past — or been suppressed. A conversation with a close partner or friend may be what’s needed to bring the matter out into the open. Once it’s there, you’re more likely to recognize where the efforts of recent weeks have been leading, and have a clearer picture of your options and abilities. Speak your truth fearlessly. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“You possess actual creativity, actual devotion and a strong tendency to be ethical. If you don’t let fear contaminate your mind, you will be able to connect these things in the form of your true vocation. If you are involved in what you consider to be your true vocation, you will have opportunities to go deeper and to bring in something that has the power to change you and change the world around you. That’s the mark of truth: it’s alive, it’s active, it’s provocative, and it compels you to establish an ongoing relationship with it.”
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Chances are you’ve been putting forth your best and working hard and contentedly in your current capacity. Yet you must not ignore your dreams. Indeed, sometime soon you will need to vocalize them. Get your facts in order, then find someone who you know will offer you support and a listening ear. Don’t waste time on anyone who seems only there to criticize. You know what you’re doing, and the input you need now is the sort that’s most constructive and useful. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“The two most significant aspects of life — love, and work — are coming in at full strength at the moment. You’re in a moment unlike any other you’ve lived through, at least speaking from the viewpoint of your astrology. It’s all so much that you might not be so thrilled; you may not see the opportunities in the wild mash-up of factors that are influencing your life. To begin with, I am here to remind you that you’re larger than it all.”
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — As the sign ruled by the Moon, you’re naturally attuned to the energy of the Divine Mother archetype, in whatever form you see Her. Just now it seems as if you have that energy on tap; so let it fill you up and nourish you. Wherever you direct your efforts, you are likely to shine brightly; make sure as many people as possible benefit from your example. You can do that by expressing yourself as freely as possible in your creative work, and keeping your highest ideals in mind. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“You are the kind of person who must become your intentions and give everything all you’ve got. You feel better when you do this, even if you’re having to stretch a little. Being half-hearted does not suit you. You are a whole-hearted person, you want to feel that fully, and you want to be appreciated for what you do. This is the essence of self-esteem and it’s currently one of the most basic elements of your astrology.”
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Recent accomplishments are now putting you somewhat in the public eye. Whatever success you’ve had, the chances are it’s fully earned, and underpinned by the integrity of your character. If others ask about your achievements, be gracious and encouraging. Remember, though, how much more you can still do; at some stage you must move forward, and focus on your next goal. Even resting on laurels gets boring after a while. Newer aspirations are waiting for you. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“The more you take a proactive and creative role, the less it will feel like changes are happening to you and the more it will feel like you are working with the incoming forces to create the change that you want. Therefore, pay close attention to just what that is: know what you want to change. I suggest you work with two lists: what you want to resolve or eliminate, and what you want to create. Both will happen as part of the same process.”
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — It’s not always easy to remember what is most important, especially in this era of information overload and constant noise. There are many things that can lead us off track. Yet as a Virgo, you never quite lose your powers of discernment, even when you’re not feeling so sure of yourself; and they’re particularly strong right now. Therefore, make use of them; consciously maintain your connection to Source and to your inner guide; and let that drive you onward. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“You could say that apart from all the psychological concepts attached to self-esteem, the experience you’re looking for is feeling good about who you are. This is a feeling, not a concept. Rather than strive for the feeling, the thing to do is give yourself the experiences that you want; the experiences that will enrich you and help you develop into your personhood. To feel good about yourself, it’s vital that you know how to express who you are, and what you feel.”
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Gradually, you have been growing into your potential and expanding your horizons. Now you can begin to consolidate the gains you’ve made. You’re probably already starting to see how you’ve altered as a person, and the difference in your ambitions and motivation. What follows is likely to be a truer understanding of who you really are, and who you are becoming. Meanwhile, focus on what is important to you, and stick firmly to your purpose. — By Amy Elliott.

“Your workplace must be not just habitable but truly supportive. You simply must like the place where you work, or you risk your mental and emotional health. Others can get by with jobs they hate, or substandard working environments; you cannot. Therefore, invest the time and energy that you need to have a place of work that supports your creativity, your health and your wellbeing.”

Sensing Behind the Veil: Your Guide into a Big Year
“Your passion, deep care and love always shine through; and you have the gift of all great teachers, of making one feel that one is being personally addressed, respected and taken care of.”
— Liz Glanville
Dear Scorpio Friend and Reader:
Here we are in that time when the veil between this world and unseen realms is said to be thinnest. I know many people, including several Scorpios, who revel in the sensations of this season. Yet tuning in takes conscious intention; it asks you to make time and psychic space for subtler forms of connection than what modern life generally facilitates.
That’s one of the beauties of your 2017-18 Scorpio Birthday Reading: it’s the ideal tool to help you tune in — to yourself, to the astrology, to your soul’s purpose in this world, and to your connection to the subtler realms.
Your solar year is beginning with astonishing potential, thanks to Jupiter’s presence. And while Jupiter is not exactly ‘subtle’, it still asks you to make conscious contact with its energy — Eric will guide you in how to make the most of it.
With Saturn, Uranus and Chiron changing signs, your environment will be shifting — yet another great reason to focus your bandwidth and deepen your awareness.
In particular, Uranus entering your opposite sign and ‘relationship house’ — Taurus — could bring some surprises over the next few years. Listening to your birthday reading will help you get oriented on the inherent creative potential, and to channel your energy and emotion in deeply productive ways.
Your reading will include two astrology segments of at least 30 minutes each, plus a tarot reading using the Voyager Tarot by James Wanless (you also get an extended description of your sign). Recorded in pro-quality audio, you can listen as many times as you like.
And, you’ll want to: Eric creates these readings to combine the best of his motivational life-coaching skills; the best of his therapy training; and the most down-to-Earth, practical, jargon-free astrological insights you’ll find anywhere on the internet.
“A devoted follower of your work since 2008, and a supporting member now for more than a year, I feel your readings are spot on so I keep coming back.”
— Lesley (Scorpio x 3)

Yours & truly,
P.S. If you know and love anyone with a Scorpio Sun, Moon or rising sign, the 2017-18 Scorpio Birthday Reading makes an incredible gift.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — As Venus prepares to join Jupiter in your sign, this may well be a good week to spend some quality time with people you care about. Thanks to the internet, amid other things, we’ve become great at isolating ourselves into invisible boxes, as mimes do, each containing one person and their smartphone. Yet the boxes don’t really exist. Step out of yours and take time to be with someone in person. I’m sure you’ll think of a few things you can do without the aid of technology. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“You must gather with people who share common values with you. You can no longer afford to invest your precious time and psychic energy with people who do not embody the highest vibration of what you desire, and know to be true. You will feel better about yourself when you can speak openly about what you value the most, and spend time with those who share your spiritual goals and your purpose for living.”
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — You’ll likely find some opportunities are opening up on the career front, or within your daily life. You might benefit from reviewing and maximizing your efficiency. Get organized and kick any habits of procrastination or distraction. Everyone needs relaxation time and this moment is certainly no different; just don’t let anyone or anything send you off on a tangent. Remember what you’re ultimately aiming for, and do your best to keep the path clear and straight. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“To succeed, your work plan must have metes and bounds. You must choose the specific things you need to accomplish within a specific timeframe, and these choices must be prioritized. This does not mean that you will follow your plans exactly, and you’ll very likely alter your priorities as you proceed. Yet it’s essential to start with some organized scheme, so that you have an overview, and you have a first draft to revise.”
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — In some ways, the approaching changes before us — as several outer planets prepare to switch signs — are already familiar to you. That’s because you’ve experienced a process of maturing on the most inward level, which has slowly rebuilt you from the inside out, and strengthened your resilience. The key now is to let your renewed self out to play. One way to do this is through creativity. Resist any temptation to hold back: people need to see your truth just as much as you need to express it. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“You are someone who is more connected to the wider flow of the human experience than you might otherwise be. Even if you’re not an official leader, or into politics, you are connected (often rather consciously) to aspects of life that extend far beyond yourself. This connection sometimes comes bursting into your life when you’re not vaguely interested. Sometimes you feel it as a direct calling, and you may or may not know what to do with that.”
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — This is the time of year during which many cultures remember their ancestors. You’re often so forward-thinking that it pays, from time to time, to recollect where you came from and how your memories and experience can bolster your identity. Consider especially the particular people who inspired you, the stories with the most edifying conclusion, the remembrances that warm your heart the most. Let them enrich your soul in these deep Scorpio evenings. — By Amy Elliott. For your Eric Francis horoscope this week, please see this link.
“Within the morphogenetic fields of your sign is an inbred rebelliousness of mind. This comes with the refusal to accept patterns imposed by others; the capacity to hybridize one’s views and have original positions on social and political issues; which in turn leads to a kind of eccentricity that is very much a quality of your nature. So too is a distinct inventiveness, if you can keep your mind awake, alert and young.”
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — With your traditional ruler Jupiter now in your 9th house, your hotline to the divine just got hotter. You can envision your dreams in all their glory, and quite beautiful they are too. Just remember to pop back to Earth from time to time; for one thing, you have a human body, which needs food, sleep and nurture. For another, you know that traveling to higher realms is only stage one. The next part is really the point: bringing back the messages you discover, and sharing them. — By Amy Elliott.

“After many adventures, misadventures, developments, challenges and crises, you’ve integrated the many seemingly separate facets of who you were into someone who you now most distinctly are. I suggest you make a study of this gradual transformation that’s taken over your life, and which is nearly complete. Feel the ways in which you’ve worked out problems that seemed to have no solution. Notice how your confidence level has increased.”
