Surprises and change are a major mood this week as the new month kicks off with a serious bang. A moment of truth early in the week should clear up a quandary that’s been weighing on your mind since late September. The insight or outburst could come as a bit of a shock, but the takeaway is well worth the initial surprise.

Armed with a sense of newfound clarity, you could be inspired to go off-piste and try something totally new or random come the new moon (5 November AEST; 4 November GMT). It’s a time to get honest about what you really want even if whatever that is ruffles a few feathers. You can’t please everyone, so quit trying!

Venus and Mercury also change signs (5 November AEST and GMT; 6 November AEST and GMT) teeing up a different vibe for the weeks ahead. Expect a surge in your powers of perception, and an increased focus on long-term goals both materially and emotionally. All in all, it’s set to be an epic week that could wrap up with you feeling quite a bit differently about things than you did at the start of the week.

ARIES AND ARIES RISING

Intriguing developments – around your work and closest relationships – could unfold early in the week helping you finally make a call on something that’s been in limbo for months. The end to indecision will feel like a huge relief. If you’re looking to shake things up, especially around cash, the new moon (5 November AEST; 4 November GMT) is a great window to set off-the-wall goals.

TAURUS AND TAURUS RISING

There’s an epic opportunity to hit reset on your love life this week, when the new moon brings huge gust of fresh start energy. The impetus could come as a bit of a shock, but the underlying issues will be familiar. Trust the newness, be open to flipping the script and lean in to experimenting with a new way of being in love.

GEMINI AND GEMINI RISING

The winds of change are upon us this month starting mid-week when a new moon in Scorpio promises a major shakeup, especially around your health, work and daily routine. You’re pretty awesome with change, but this could feel a little intimidating. Don’t let a fear of the unknown get the better of you, now is not the time to jump to conclusions.

CANCER AND CANCER RISING

A big decision that’s been on hold, especially anything involving your nearest and dearest, could feel a whole lot easier to resolve this week. Trust any new insights – or old skeletons that come tumbling out of the closet – are coming to light for a reason. Use the new intel to help you make a more informed choice.

LEO AND LEO RISING

The times are a changin’ this month, so be prepared to stay limber and roll with the surprises. A big rethink around where you live and/or what you’re doing for work is on the cards throughout November. The uncertainty could stir up anxiety at home (and/or with family) but at least try to stay open. The new moon (5 November AEST; 4 November GMT) should offer a first look at what’s to come.

VIRGO AND VIRGO RISING

Money has likely been on your mind quite a bit the past month or two, and this week the focus should finally shift (TF!). But before it does, there’s one final piece of the puzzle that should fall into place. Pay attention to what comes up, especially the first half of the week, and revise your game plan accordingly.

LIBRA AND LIBRA RISING

An issue, dynamic or even a person from your past, could reemerge this week calling for your attention. As much as you thought you’d sorted it out, trust that if it’s coming up again, it needs another look. The potential for insight is major, so resist the urge to freak out, and instead, bring a gentle curiosity to what resurfaces.

SCORPIO AND SCORPIO RISING

This week’s wild weather should prove nothing if not a sense of intrigue to Scorpio folks. After the dust settles from the truth bombs of Monday/Tuesday, the new moon brings a welcome opportunity to wipe the slate clean – especially around your health and body – for the month ahead. Expect some surprises and possibly a little irritation on your part.

SAGITTARIUS AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

There’s the potential for some surprising news early this week, as an ongoing conversation or decision (especially involving cash and/or friends) reaches a climax. The resolution will be a welcome relief and set you up to take a load off and put some time aside for introspection around the new moon (5 November AEST; 4 November GMT).

CAPRICORN AND CAPRICORN RISING

A moment of clarity, especially connected to your job, could shake things up early in the week. Expect a resolution to something that’s been in contention since September. The newfound resolve will be a reason to celebrate; something you’ll feel like doing a whole lot more once Venus moves into your home sign (5 November).

AQUARIUS AND AQUARIUS RISING

Are you ready for a refresh? The big changes are coming thick and fast as the new moon (5 November AEST; 4 November GMT) ushers in a month of major shakeups for Aquarian folks. Pay attention to your instincts, especially around work and home, when the skies ask you to get serious about what you really want.

PISCES AND PISCES RISING

October was – a lot – but early this week, you should finally receive the closure you’ve been hanging out for. Cash-related decisions and big purchases (especially involving other people) could come to fruition… or at least reach a resolution. Celebrate with some solitude when the new moon (moon 5 November AEST; 4 November GMT) turns the world around you a little topsy turvy.
