The Cosmic Reason That Election Day Felt Even More Dramatic
As if Election Day didn't feel heightened already, the movement of Uranus (the planet of revolution, evolution, and change) could amp things up even more, says astrologer Jennifer Racioppi. Here's her best advice on feeling your best over the next week with your food, fitness, and self-care choices—no matter what your sun sign is.
Monday, November 5
The week begins with the moon waning dark in Libra. Libra, the sign of justice and equity, calls for balance, harmony, and moral commitment to your values. With the election, now’s the time to review your local ballots and decide on the candidates you wish to support. Make sure you have a plan in place to get to the polls. Politics aside, the moon moves through its balsamic phase, and we prepare for the upcoming new moon in Scorpio on Wednesday. Take a moment to review where you’ve journeyed over the last few weeks. What’s played out in your life? What did you learn? Then, consider your intention for the next lunar cycle. What do you next want to bring to fruition?
Tuesday, November 6
With the midterm elections here in the States, allow your commitment to self-care to lead you to the polls. Voting, after all, remains an essential exercise in using your voice and advocating for your beliefs. Uranus, the planet of revolution, evolution, and change, (who’s retrograde) moves from Taurus, back into Aries today too. Given this, we can expect this day to feel explosive potentially. (Nothing like a wee bit of political drama, mixed with the influence of cosmic disruption.)

To manage this, be sure to prioritize your workout. Movement neutralizes stress. Take time to tune into serenity. Remember, deep breathing supports your body's processes to detox toxins from your blood and body. Prioritize dark leafy greens, and remember to stay blood-sugar balanced by limiting sugar and foods that spike your insulin.
Wednesday, November 7
The new moon in Scorpio occurs today at 11:02 a.m. at 15 degrees. This favorable new moon makes a trine (or a positive angle) to spiritual Neptune while sextiling Pluto (another supportive connection). While Venus continues to travel retrograde, it also makes a trine to Mars in Aquarius. Translation: This well-supported new moon offers tremendous potential. So tune into your ambition and go for gold. News flash: You have nothing to lose. The best way to work with new moon energy is to set an intention at the time of the new moon. Similar to a new year intention, a new moon intention is an apparent goal for the lunar cycle. Regardless, with Pluto in an ideal angle to the sun and moon, this new moon offers a beautiful new beginning as it relates to your health and well-being. If you’ve been putting off your fitness goals, this new moon offers an incredibly potent moment to reconnect and move forward. It’s the action we take in the days that follow the now moon that support our ability to bring a goal to fruition.
Thursday, November 8
Today heralds one of the most important days of the year. Jupiter, the planet of good luck and good fortune, moves from Scorpio—the sign it's traveled in since October 10, 2017—into Sagittarius, a sign it'll travel in until December 2, 2019. Coincidentally, Jupiter rules Sagittarius, meaning this transit brings forth a homecoming that we haven’t seen in 12 years. This promising and important transit ignites passion and asks all to take a stand on behalf of democracy, our dreams, and goals. Sagittarius, after all, represents freedom.

And, since Jupiter also represents athletic prowess, Jupiter’s return to its home sign beckons us all to a more profound command of our fitness practices. Jupiter in Sagittarius brings excellent news to the fitness industry. The next 13 months offer an incredible opportunity to get in shape and push the boundaries of what’s possible for you physically. However, coincidentally, on the opposite side of the same coin, if focus is lacking, Jupiter in Sagittarius can also amplify laziness. You decide which side of the fence you want to fall on. I highly recommend committing to your wellness plan.
Friday, November 9
After a crazy big week, finally the work week comes to a close. As one of the final Fridays before the holidays kick into full gear, you want to use this to your advantage. Primarily because in the not-so-distant future, holiday parties and family obligations will fill your calendar. With the moon waxing in Sagittarius (a sign that loves freedom and movement), spending a little extra time at the gym, or making time for that 90-minute yoga class, proves incredibly fruitful now. (You may even want to go alone!) Thankfully the auspicious trine between Venus and Mars perfects today while Jupiter sends a luscious manifestation beam of good luck to the north node of fate and destiny. Take advantage of the time and space today offers. Stay focused on your dream, and remain committed to the outcome you most desire.
Saturday, November 10
With the recent new moon behind us, now’s the time to crank on our goals, desires, and dreams. Even with Venus still retrograde, and Mercury about to go retrograde, November offers fantastic potential. What would you like to do with it? Remember, our wellness practices fuel our capacity to succeed. How do you want to use your life force energy? Take a step back from your social life today and tune into what your specific needs are. Do something loving for yourself.
Sunday, November 11
The sun in Scorpio makes a perfect angle of support to powerhouse Pluto today, suggesting that self-care Sunday might feel less like face masks and more like deep esoteric magic. (Or perhaps face masks and esoteric magic!) From the perspective of numerology, today is 11/11, which signifies support from the universe and the ability to intentionally manifest what you most desire. So spend time today focused on those goals.

Employ the power of visualization. Connect with any spiritual deities you hold near and dear to your heart. But most importantly, remember that no matter how divided and different from others we can feel at times, we are indeed all one.
