Hello, fellow Moon-children! The new wallpapers for November are here! I hope you all had an amazing Halloween/Samhain yesterday, I sure did. Now let’s get to a little astro forecast.
I hope you all had a great cycle so far and are ready to take a look at the next moon cycle starting in November! Uranus Rx will be entering Aries on the second week which might cause some active rebellion and when Venus goes out or Rx, Mercury decides to go in, and oh do people dread a Mercury Rx! Towards the end of the month, Neptune will finally go direct!
Moon forecast can be found at the bottom with the download link for the wallpaper!
Every month I share a new mobile wallpaper that helps you stay in touch with the Moon and her phases. However, there are also desktop wallpapers if you’re interested over at my Etsy page! These wallpapers are to help you get in touch with the moon by keeping track of its phases and signs they appear in.
In witchcraft or most other spiritual religions, the phases of the Moon are very important. People try to keep track of this by using apps or websites, but why not just have a calendar on your desktop or mobile device that helps you remember? If there’s one thing people have close these days, it’s either a smartphone or pc.
When I made these for myself I thought, why not share them with the world, I’m probably not the only one who would like to use something like that. And I was right. In one community by itself, I managed to get over 100 responses to how much they loved the simplicity of it. No more apps, let’s keep it basic. We already have too much clutter in our lives,
The design I used is simple but elegant and shows all you need to know, nothing more. The name of the month, the dates of the 4 main phases and the sign they appear in.
It can be used as just a lock screen or home screen, or both. The information should show up just below the lock screen clock. Below you will see a preview of what the layout looks like.
The desktop wallpapers are a little bit different. Still simple enough, but I thought it’d be nice to have them be a little bit silly. Since I’m an illustrator, I decided to make “witchy” illustrations on photographs to go with them. Below you can see the one I made for July.
A little bit of astrology
7th November, New Moon in Scorpio
New things, plans, projects and a passionate and sensitive Scorpio. Scorpio’s don’t like to be threatened by situations, and they are not afraid to sting. This may not be the best time to invite huge change into your life unless you can get fully into it with that passionate Scorpio energy. If you need to start an inner rebellion, then Uranus Rx has got your back right now.
15th November, Waxing Moon in Aquarius
As you’re building up Aquarius comes across the corner, telling you to be your own original self. Aquarius prefers to do things differently, reinvent the wheel. You might want to take a peek at what you could do differently than usual with your new plans. Aquarius doesn’t like huge changes either, except for small changes if they were caused by their own inventiveness. What may help as well Is getting in touch with your friends or do something for the community with this Aquarius energy. Be wary with communication starting tomorrow when Mercury goes into Retrograde.
23rd November, Full Moon in Gemini
Full Moon in Gemini tells you to be social, speak out those thoughts at this time. The perfect time for any social events that you need to attend to. Don’t let Gemini’s indecisiveness trouble you though. You know you’re own truth, but maybe you need to dig a little deeper in that head of yours. within a Mercury, Rx communication can be tricky so watch that. Tomorrow Neptune will go direct inviting you to explore your spiritual and karmic experiences outside of yourself after a hibernation period.
30th November, Waning Moon in Virgo
Waning Moon in Virgo is all about getting ourselves organized again to let that energy flow efficiently. If this cycle has been very busy for you then make use of this Virgo energy to sort things out for yourself to get ready for the next cycle. Also be sure to let go of any habits or things that don’t serve you anymore, your focus now is efficiency.
Since I mentioned the spooky Mercury retrograde a lot here, the retrograde will be from 16th November till 6th December. I’ll be doing a post on retrograde energy later during this month.
