NOVEMBER: Digging deeper. Mercury's still retrograde, but we're diving into our process to emerge brighter than ever.
November 1–Venus Enters Sagittarius. Moving from transformation to expansion, and so are your products. Try something new, foreign/international—a brand with a story, a mission, and a vision. The products you use, the care that went into them, how they were made can have a significant impact on your skin and wellbeing.
November 12–Full Moon in Taurus. Going more in-depth with your process. How do your products make you feel empowered? Are you open to change? Your skin is an organ too—just as it grows and changes, so do you. Time change up your routine–the cosmos are supporting you to find deeper meaning in how you care for yourself.
November 9–Mars enters Scorpio. Intense, sexy, passionate–think red lipstick and added protection.
November 20–Mercury moves direct, which means that it will no longer be retrograde! But give it a little time to settle. Revisit what works and let the rest go now that you're clearer and more intimate with your products, internal process, and others.
November 22–The Sun enters Sagittarius, and it's officially Sagittarius Season! Shining a light on where we have a vision, our sights set high, and becoming more idealistic about where life's headed. Remember that the possibility of Sagittarius season is just what we needed to bring in the holiday cheer! Side note: today marks the beginning of the ending of a Sagittarius cycle, as Jupiter will soon be making its way into Capricorn.
November 24–An auspiciously charged day to take action as Venus and Jupiter meet overhead in Sagittarius. A time to take a calculated risk based on your new-found clarity. This could be as simple as exploring a skin routine or booking that flight you've been thinking about.
November 25–Venus moves into the sign Capricorn. And things like strategy, status, and commitment, for the most part, feel more comfortable.
November 26–New Moon in Sagittarius, adding to the Sagittarius portal that will catapult us into manifestation.
November 27–Neptune Direct. All eyes wide open. Whenever any planet comes out of retrograde, it takes a little bit to get used to the change in pace. Neptune governs connectedness, and when we are to enmeshed in any process, person or thinking, confusion persists. Neptune coming out of its retrograde journey is about giving everything room and space to breathe in order to understand their deeper meaning (not surface).
