Jyotish Horoscopes for the Waning Moon Cycle {November 6th to 22nd}

*Eleditor’s note: Astrology isn’t a religion. We’re not sure it’s a science, either. It’s magic, maybe. But, as with feng shui, say, things affect things. So as long as we don’t go blaming our problems on the stars, as long as we assume responsibility for our own actions…well, hell, a little auspicious coincidence and applicable wisdom can’t hurt. And so, with that grain of salt…enjoy!


*Vedic Astrology, or Jyotish, is one of the oldest sciences on the planet and considered a relative of astronomy. It is an important and valuable part of the ancient Vedic texts. This complex, logic-based, and also intuitive science, has survived thousands of years in India’s Vedic tradition and is still considered a highly valuable tool of guidance and life insight. It is not a religion, but rather a philosophical understanding of human and cosmic existence. In Sanskrit, Jyoti means light. Essentially, the study of jyotish is the study of light and how we interact with the cosmic light- within us and within the cosmos. Vedic astrology, or the sidereal approach to astrology, casts charts differently than Western, or Tropical astrology. The meanings, implications, and purpose of jyotish is therefor different, as are the details used for prediction and the indications given below.

As I shared in my “Full Moon Wisdom” post, this waning cycle is about working with and harmonizing our polarities—the different parts of ourselves.

Most notably, we should focus on our shadows and our light.

This is the ultimate balancing act. The stability that we are moving into, moving towards at this time, gets transformed, changed, and re-imagined, as we near the new Moon on the 22nd.

For now, create gentle undulations and ride your own waves, by rooting into your own depths.

In this waning Moon cycle, we see Venus shift into Scorpio on the 11th and then Sun moving into Scorpio on the 16th, both joining Saturn there.

Depth and transformation become the overarching theme. Read more about Saturn in Scorpio.

The new Moon is in Scorpio (with three other planets there as well) on November 22nd at 06:32 am CST.

Horoscopes for the Waning Moon Cycle {November 6th to 22nd}

*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your “Western Sign” as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.

Aries: It’s time to boldly face what isn’t working in your life and relationships. Dreams are wonderful, but they will stay dreams forever unless you are willing to create goals, actions and motivation to materialize them. It’s time to dig into your depths and face your shadows, your demons and fears.

In order for you to truly move forward in your life, you must be willing to go into your depths like never before. Relationship and money challenges may provoke this inner work, especially as Venus moves to your 8th house on the 11th. Once Sun dips into your 8th house on the 16th, you enter a new month that will help you go more deep than you are used to. Dive deep in order to harvest your pearls.

Taurus: Still digesting and assimilating? Your gut continues to be a primary resource for you. What is it telling you? Are you asking it to give you answers and awareness?

New studies show that our stomach is actually the brain of the body, and a vital messaging center. It’s no surprise that the gut and the emotions are intimately connected and both inform our responses. For you, right now, this is especially true. Your intuitive knowing can be heightened as a result.

Have you noticed any strong “gut reactions” lately? As Venus and Sun move into your 7th house, this new gut awareness is tested. Who and what repulses you and makes you want to vomit? Who and what gives you indigestion and heartburn? You are learning to never negate your gut instincts.

Gemini: It’s your passion, creativity and desire to learn that is moving you forward right now. Be sure you are letting your emotional body wisdom be a driving force as well.

There is a lot of wisdom to access in the shadows of your heart, so be sure you are looking into your darkness. Seek the gifts your shadows have to offer you and go beyond the surface. As Venus and Sun dip into your sixth house, you get a chance to work more directly with your old mental patterns, and limiting beliefs.

What is holding you back from fully expressing your gifts, talents and passionate, creative self? What keeps you invisible? This will shed light on your career and what needs to be overcome in order for sharing your greatness.

Cancer: Your task in the coming weeks is to take your heart wisdom into full creativity and passion. Materialize and start actualizing your creativity into tangible, structured offerings.

Self expression is the key to this reality. How you relate, and to whom, becomes the bridge. Let the wisdom of the body be a primary resource for your awakenings, your movements and fluidity. What is trapped in your heart that needs wings in order to fly? Let your heart open, sing and soar! Once Venus and Sun move into your 5th house and join Saturn there, finding a container—a clear channel for your passions—becomes even more vital.

Leo: Creativity and communication are flowing through your hands. Relationships and connections are improved as you courageously express yourself and take some risks with speaking your truths. Do it. Go there. It’s all about opening your heart in new and vital ways. Sharing parts of yourself that have been locked away, closed off and left unexpressed.

As Venus and Sun move to your 4th house, joining Saturn there, creativity will get sparked from your heart-knowing wisdom. Let this creativity and awakening stir your career, your offerings and your intuitive knowing. Some new information is emerging from your depths. Will you listen to it and honor it? Or stuff it down, turn it off and neglect it once again?

Virgo: Self expression and nourishment seems to be a top priority right now—especially in your relationships. What needs are getting met? Which ones aren’t? Exploring your anger is ideal right now with Mars still in your heart center (4th house).

Anger is a gift in disguise, it gives us direct access to our passion and what we want and need in our lives. Let it be a tuning fork for you; do not suppress it! Keep diligently working on your own self development, taking off your blinders and unveiling your shadows. Relationships prove illuminating for this task. As Venus and Sun move into your third house, creative courage soars. Let your body wisdom and embodiment work be a primary resource for your integration process.

Libra: Life and relationships may feel as if they are teetering back and forth, trying to find new balance—new set point for normalcy. It’s taken courage for you to communicate your needs, express your self and to find your nourishment. Keep sensing and feeling into this.

You are learning a lot from sharing, teaching, advising, and stepping out into the world. Keep stepping with your heart and using your emotional body wisdom to guide you towards your needs. As Venus and Sun move to your 2nd house with Saturn, feeding your self becomes vital. Feed your self at the core levels of your life, from your roots to your tips. Nourish your depths.

Scorpio: You are still addressing endings, losses and letting go. This isn’t foreign territory to you, though, and there’s some sense of relief now in the release, no matter the consequences.

Continue the theme of releasing in this cycle and see if you can lighten your load even more. Sparks fly in your head once Venus and Sun move to your first house. Don’t over do it, or you may experience some short circuits in your hard drive. That said, creativity, relationships and connection, as well as your ability to shine and be seen, are all maximized.

If you are willing to step out of your own shadows, you will truly get the spot light. Take center stage Scorpio, you deserve it! And for a moment anyway, let the light all go to your head.

Sagittarius: With Mars sitting in your head right now, you’re probably feeling like a bit of a hot head! Working with your anger can be a powerful resource. What is setting you off? What needs are not being met? What do you need to express, but instead hold back from sharing? Now’s the time to start using your anger as a resource for passion and for expressing your gifts!

As Venus and Sun move into your 12th house, digging into your depths becomes extremely important and worthwhile. Shift your focus to liberation, release and letting go. The more you can release and let go of, the bigger the changes you can allow yourself to have in the coming cycle. Create space for what’s coming next, so you can make a big splash.

Capricorn: Career and your offerings to the world have been your top priority. Connecting, sharing, communicating with your audience are very important right now, though it may feel slightly frustrating or uncertain at the same time. Take action steps anyway.

Once Venus and Sun move into your 11th house of gains with Saturn, a new vibrancy and creativity surges through you. Keep it structured, embodied and use your creativity as a connector. Friends, older siblings and your own personal experiences may be resources for you. Work with your shadow and light in order to maximize this transit. Look for the silver linings.

Aquarius: Your career and offerings are finally getting some structure, some solidity. The wisdom of the body is a vital resource for harnessing your gifts and talents. Let the physical body wisdom inform you and what you share with the world. Let yourself be vulnerable and share your shadows in order to authentically connect.

Once Venus and Sun move to your 10th house and join Saturn there, your ability to connect intensifies. Relationships prove to be a vital mirror for your offerings, so use them to inform who and what you are connecting with. Communicating through the computer is an excellent choice for reaching a wider audience. Use this tool.

Pisces: It’s all about releasing and letting go right now. Currently you are getting a full restructuring in your head and it’s coming up from your depths. Relationships and old patterns have been going through a transformation, which has effected your relationships and what you see when you look in the mirror. This is a mind shift, and a powerful one at that! Let the changes begin.

As Venus and Sun emerge from your 8th house and move into your 9th, a new sense of wisdom becomes palpable for you. Offer this wisdom, your new awareness, and let your inner knowing express itself. Share, advise, connect and use the physical body wisdom as a resource for how you share, what you share, and who you share it with. Get embodied and the clarity will come. Step boldly and be courageous with your career.
