MONTH OF November

Monthly Snapshot: 

The tension of 2020 is reaching a full boil as November begins, but there’s a silver lining: It’s Scorpio season until November 21! While that doesn’t make you immune to what’s happening in the world, you will be better able to compartmentalize (which is different from denial, btw) and focus on some of your own plans and pursuits. When you feel out of control, try to manage the things you CAN change instead of what you can’t. As a Scorpio, you’d rather have everything go your way, but if this year has taught you anything…

This month, three retrograde planets turn direct (forward): Mercury on November 3, Mars on November 13 and Neptune on November 28. You endured communicator Mercury’s backspin through your sign from October 13 to 27, then its dip into Libra and your twelfth house of surrender and rest since then. If you’ve felt worn out or mentally exhausted, these cosmic course corrections will start to shift all of that.

On November 12, your ruler Pluto will make its third and final connection to truth-teller Jupiter in Capricorn, shaking up your communication house. Something you’ve been keeping inside—or news you’ve been awaiting—could come out into the open. Look back to April 4 and June 30, the last two Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions, for clues of what may surface now.

Grounding energy arrives on November 21, when the Sun moves into Sagittarius and your anchoring second house. Start building some of those big birthday plans into concrete goals. For the next month, new opportunities for work and money could arrive. But the stars saved the most impactful moment for last: a November 30 Gemini lunar eclipse in your eighth house of intimacy and shared finances. A very close relationship could undergo a surprise plot twist.

Week 1: November 1-8

Good to go—finally!

At last! On Tuesday, November 3, the polls swing in your favor as Mercury, the planet of communication and technology, ends a three-week retrograde that had YOU in its crosshairs. From October 13 to 27, the quicksilver planet backed through your sign, making you feel wildly misunderstood or attacked. Not what anyone needs during these already troubling times!

Since October 27, Mercury’s been reversing through Libra and your twelfth house of hidden agendas, closure and rest. You may have waved a white flag or two, surrendering certain battles and choosing to focus on the things you CAN control (Hint: That’s not other people).

Once you’ve cast your vote, it’s time to let those recent troubles go, Scorpio. Distressing dreams, hidden information, the fear of folks whispering behind your back—everything will be clearer moving forward (including your own intentions). Spoiler alert: On November 10, Mercury will return to your sign for a second, retrograde-free trip that will last until December 1. All those backlogged messages and ideas you thought had gotten lost in the void could resurface for a brilliant second chance!

Week 2: November 9-15

Speak up!

Get ready to share your message, Scorpio. Your ruling planet, secretive Pluto, connects with outspoken Jupiter this Thursday, November 12, for their final summit of 2020. They’ll unite in Capricorn and your communication sector, prompting you to voice an idea or feeling that’s been brewing all year.

It begins on Thursday, November 12, when auspicious Jupiter makes its third of 2020’s three connections to transformational Pluto. These planetary powerhouses only align every 13 years, and they’ve already done so on April 4 and June 30. Look back to those dates. Did you have a perspective-shifting conversation, an aha moment or some kind of breakthrough in your mindset?

This grand finale Jupiter-Pluto conjunction could help it all make sense. Or it could incite a power struggle in which you become clear that you’ll never just “agree to disagree” with a certain person, whether that’s about the recent U.S. election or some other clashing beliefs. Can you choose to accept the things (and people and minds) you cannot change? It may be the fastest route to inner peace. But don’t stop fighting for your ideals just because you refuse to engage in a Twitter war with a troll or to take the bait of a bully who pushes your buttons. Focus on sharing your message where you can be most impactful.

Tending to your health can also work wonders, so minimize stress levels and ramp up self-care. On Friday, November 13, energizer Mars wakes up from a two-month retrograde in Aries and your sixth house of wellness. You may have slipped off the wellness wagon sometime since September 9 or dealt with frustrating red tape in an attempt to get organized. From today forward, you can start resuming your clean eating and regular workouts. But be sure to ease back into that groove, Scorpio—you don’t want to injure yourself by overdoing it.

Your “personal New Year” arrives on Sunday, November 15, when the annual Scorpio new moon presses a hard reset and kicks off a fresh six-month cycle around your passions and goals. Between now and the April 26, 2021, Scorpio full moon, you could make serious headway!

Week 3: November 16-22

A little less conversation, a little more action

On Tuesday, November 17, mouthy Mercury in your sign will oppose disruptor Uranus in your relationship zone. A close person could push your buttons, and you won’t be able to bite your tongue. Just be careful how quickly you respond because your clapbacks could cut more deeply than intended. Play fair! It also happens to be National Unfriend Day, and, well, you don’t want to find yourself unwittingly “celebrating” this holiday—at least not with the people you truly care about.

On Saturday, November 21, the Sun slides into Sagittarius and heats up your work and finance zone for a month. Are you ready to move from the talk or idea phase to action? Start building those buzzy birthday wishes into something tangible. As the Sun leaves your sign and moves into your stabilizing second house, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get productive!

Sagittarius season also whets your appetite for life’s luxuries. Put a few posh presents on your holiday gift list or splurge on something special for your favorite peeps, especially the ones who stuck loyally by your side throughout this challenging year.

Week 4: November 23-30

Imagination inspiration

Love and money occupy the spotlight this week as November goes out with cosmic fanfare. On Saturday, November 28, hazy Neptune wraps a five-month retrograde in Pisces and your fifth house of romance and creativity. Doubt and insecurity may have plagued your love life, or maybe an ex kept creeping back into the picture. A passion project you were excited about earlier this year could have lost steam. As Neptune corrects course, prepare for your artistic and romantic engines to rev again. Unleash your imagination!

Shared finances and intimate ties are the subject of the Gemini lunar (full moon) eclipse on Saturday, November 30, which lands in your eighth house of merging. A brewing joint venture or simmering sensual connection could cross into official territory. Or under this full moon of extremes, you might abruptly part ways with a longtime collaborator. A large lump sum might land in your bank account (or maybe leave it). There’s a spiritual and karmic aspect to this eclipse, so look at anything that happens through the lens of “energy” and the Law of Attraction. Cause and effect ARE linked!

This is the first Gemini eclipse in a series touching down on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis from June 2020 until December 2021. Everything from your cash flow to your confidence, from your partnership to your property will be astrologically overhauled. If you didn’t grasp the link between your self-worth and your net worth, you’ll see it soon enough.

 

LOVE & ROMANCE:

With Venus and Mars in opposite signs and pinging each other across your axis of wellness and healing this month, you’ll want to pay close attention to the health of your love life. Deciding when to lean in and when to let go will be a high-wire balancing act. The diciest moment could come on November 9, when the amorous planets form an exact opposition, making it tricky to get on the same page. On one hand, you don’t want to micromanage your mate or get all anxious about a person you’ve just met (hopeful as you may be). But you can’t just completely let go of the wheel or “release it to the universe.” (Hellooooo, you’re a Scorpio.)

Casting a vote for “surrendering to serendipity” is Venus in Libra, who’s visiting your twelfth house of closure, spirituality and fantasy until November 21. You could get emotionally raw with someone, dropping your guard and allowing them a rare glimpse of your vulnerability. You may sense a soulmate connection simmering, but Venus in this illusory house could also find you idealizing or viewing a love interest through rose-colored glasses.

But Mars remains in Aries for the rest of the year, and he’s heating up your anxious and analytical sixth house. On November 13, the red planet wraps up a retrograde that began on September 9, so the first half of the month could be extra jumpy with your worries interfering with your rational thinking. Watch the obsessing, or if you’re in a longtime duo, make sure you don’t start playing coach and “keeper” for your mate.

After her tussle with Mars, Venus will get into four more cosmic clashes this month: with Pluto, Jupiter, Saturn AND Uranus, indicating that a lot of stuff is going to come up and will need to be hashed out, negotiated and compromised on. The way you communicate is EVERYTHING—so if you didn’t learn that lesson last month while Mercury was retrograde in your sign, take heed now.

On November 21, Venus moves into Scorpio until December 15: You’ll get back on your game, ready for a holiday makeover and to get out and flirt again (while being mindful of health restrictions). That confidence you briefly lost? It’s back with a vengeance, and people are taking notice. That’s more like it!

Key Dates:

November 9: Venus-Mars opposition

Things can intensify—in any direction—under this rare (once-every-other-year) face-off between the cosmic lovebirds. And with Venus orbiting your unconscious twelfth house, you might not even have a handle on your own motivation. Are you looking for attention? Revenge? A little drama? Cut that out instantly and be more direct about your desires and needs. Whether you’re single, attached or “it’s complicated,” you owe it to yourself (and your love interest) to treat the union with the utmost respect.

MONEY & CAREER:

Clear signals ahead! On November 3, relief arrives from the stars. Not only is election season (hopefully) over at last, but Mercury, the planet of communication and technology, ends a challenging three-week retrograde. Since October 13, the interactive planet has been disrupting daily life—and to make things harder, it was retrograde in YOUR sign until October 27. If you felt ignored, overlooked or wildly misunderstood, get ready for a much-deserved do-over!

Midmonth, the pace intensifies. On November 12, your ruler Pluto links up with outspoken Jupiter in your communication zone, bringing hidden information to light. You may need to negotiate with a formidable person. Read the fine print and if need be, show any legal documents to a lawyer before signing. Motivator Mars ends a two-month retrograde in your systematic sixth house the next day (November 13). You’ve got until January 6 to get organized and plow through the nitty-gritty details of an important plan or project. Manage your stress levels, because the holiday season could be a busy time of multitasking. Protect your immune system and get enough rest.

Luckily, a cosmic reset arrives with the November 15 Scorpio new moon. Acting as your “personal new year” this lunar reset helps you craft new goals that you can pursue between now and the April 26, 2021, Scorpio full moon. Set your sights on that destination and map out the steps you’ll need to take between now and then. And prepare for a possible windfall or exciting partnership opportunity at the November 30 Gemini lunar eclipse!

Key Dates:

November 1: Mercury-Saturn square

In this second of three squares between these formidable players—and this time with Mercury retrograde—you may not be sure whether to advance or retreat. You can’t go wrong being cagily strategic, perhaps waiting to see what others do before you make your move. The final encounter, on November 6 with Mercury direct, may provide all the answers you need.

Love Days: 22, 27

Money Days: 8, 16

Luck Days: 5, 15

Off Days: 25, 3, 12

André Leon Talley Is the New Face of Ugg

Published

on

andré leon talley

Under normal circumstances, asking the question, “How are you?” would likely render a habitual response. “Fine.” But as 2020—and the first few weeks of 2021—proved, there’s nothing normal about the current state of the world. Posing the same question to the famed fashion editor and author of The Chiffon Trenches: A Memoir, André Leon Talley takes me on a roller coaster of emotions that perfectly captures what we’re all feeling.

“Awful,” he starts, referring to the violent insurrection that took place at the U.S Capitol just five days before our conversation. Then comes the high points: He’s “optimistic” about the new administration. “What gives me hope for the future is President-elect Joe Bide and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. In with the new administration and out with an old, monstrous, fascist one,” he says. Talley’s also excited about what Bridgerton adds to diversity in television. “Shonda Rhimes, a Black woman, has redefined TV British costume drama, and brilliantly.” But most of all, Talley is feeling the love.

The legendary creative director is the newest star of Ugg’s ongoing FEEL campaign series, which spotlights the inspiring stories of icons from various industries. An icon in his own right for his decades-spanning career and impact in fashion, it might come as a surprise that Talley has been a longtime fan of the comfy footwear brand. Talley previously made headlines for pairing high fashion looks with Ugg boots while sitting front row at fashion week, and even stated that the brand is “as chic as heels for women.”

In the campaign, Talley takes us to his humble abode in White Plains, NY where he poses in the Ugg Neumel boot in one photo, and the Tasman slippers in another—with appearances from his signature fire red Norma Kamali sleeping bag coat and trademark cape. Tucked away inside his living room, Talley talks about his relationship with Ugg, his trademark uniform, and what being Black in fashion means today.

As someone who is always in an elaborate cape or coat, you’re like the poster child for coziness.

Cozy gives you security. Cozy affords you to be comfortable enough to project your best self to the world.

Is that why you chose the Norma Kamali sleeping bag coat for the campaign?

Of course. I have three red Norma Kamali coats. It basically serves as hugs for comfort. You can go out in a blizzard and you’ll be very, very warm in them. It’s oversized. It gives me a sense of being cocooned in a blanket. It’s a blanket that is thermally warm and light. It doesn’t weigh 10 pounds on your body.

How do you build your outfits? Coat first, everything else after?

The base is my coat and my boots and I build it around that. I don’t have to think about my clothes, I have a uniform. I have shirts made in North Africa, I wear them every day. My accessories are beautiful hats, mostly bought in London at Lock & Co. There’s a special caftan made for me by Tom Ford, and Gucci, and a lady in Nigeria who makes very beautiful caftans. Her name is Patience Torlowei. She makes me beautiful caftans, embroidered, special pieces, but I wear the same thing almost every day.

What’s your earliest memory of Ugg footwear?

My earliest memory of Uggs is probably about ten years ago. When they first came out with something for men, it was the slip-on boots, and I loved it. I had mine monogrammed, and they were just the boots that I went to because I’m at fashion week, running around, and they provided comfort. Listen, I have the most beautiful shoes in the world. I’ve got Tom Ford, I’ve got Berluti shoes, I’ve got Manolo Blahnik bespoke shoes—all those shoes are quite elegant. But when you have been running around fashion week, that Ugg is the utilitarian boot with style. It’s chic and comfortable with a capital “C.”

What’s the significance of shooting on your porch?

It’s my favorite part of my house. I entertain during the pandemic on the porch, during the warm weather. I did all my lunches and dinners outside on the porch because that was the social protocol to avoid COVID. The porch is a symbol of who I am because the porch is part of the Southern way I grew up. We could sit on the porch, all afternoon when it was very hot, and have family over, and talk. When I decided I was going to do this campaign, I wasn’t going to go into town, they had to come to my house. But I wasn’t going to allow them in, so the only practical place was to be outside on the porch.

Reflecting on your career, how did being the sole Black editor at the helm of a prestigious publication strengthen your ambitions?

It kept me going. I kept getting up every morning and doing the job as best I could, as best I knew how. I tried to represent my race. I felt it was very powerful to be in that position and I always kept a positive outlook. I kept going, kept going, kept going. I am most proud of my time at Vogue Magazine. I am proud to have been the person who interviewed Michelle Obama for her first cover story when she became the first lady. That was my highest achievement.

What’s your general view of the fashion industry today?

It is always moving upward and it’s always going to be there and it’s going to survive through all the ups and downs of 2020 and 2021. There’s always going to be fashion as long as you wake up, and get up, and have to leave your house, there’s always going to be someone making fashion. I love the changes I’ve been seeing lately, like the fact that Ugg picked me to be an iconic brand rep. A 72-year-old black man representing their brand—that’s one of the significant changes.

Who have you been paying attention to in the fashion industry?

LaQuan Smith. He’s self-made, self-taught, and he’s sophisticated.

Are Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes Still Dating in January 2021?

Published

shawn mendes and camila cabello

How is Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’ year-and-a-half relationship doing in the new year? Great, they’d like you to know. The couple was photographed out walking their dogs in Miami with Cabello’s parents on Saturday. (The family has four canines in all.) They dressed up for the occasion, with Cabello opting for a long peach dress and oversized sweater and Mendes wearing an unbuttoned gray top and blue jeans. Missing from their attire? A face mask, given the pandemic is still ongoing and Miami-Dade County is currently under a public mask mandate.

CAMA, VAEMBACKGRID

Cabello and Mendes aren’t photographed out all that often. They were last shot by paparazzi in mid-November while out in Miami. (They weren’t wearing masks then either.)

Cabello did share a shot of Mendes and her in a hot tub at Christmas. “I’m not good at taking a lot of pictures lately but here’s one good one ❤️” she wrote. “merry Christmas! Thank u Santa for my tall sweet funny boy.” Cabello revealed she was in Mendes’ native Toronto over the holiday in another Instagram shot.

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Mendes spoke in early December to SiriusXM Hits 1 Celebrity Session about how he feels being loved by his girlfriend.

“It’s like, it’s like the most, she is completely all in or nothing,” he said. “And I think that’s something that I wasn’t at the beginning of our relationship. And I think that a lot of people maybe are afraid to be all in, because if you’re all in, then you kind of, it hurts it. The blow hurts that much more if it ends, you know? But she really teaches me that if we have one life and we don’t have much time here, it might as well be all in if you’re in love with someone and you’re there. And I kind of learned that every day. She’s so absolutely patient with me, especially when I’m stressed or anything is kind of getting to me. She, she she’ll text me. And if I, if I ever am kind of just being bite-y with her and she’d be like, ‘it’s okay. I love you. No matter what I love you, no matter what.’ And it’s like that that’s real strength and patience and love. But it’s amazing. It’s like a movie.”

Caitlyn Jenner on Why She’s ‘Closer’ to Kylie Than Kendall Jenner

Published

on

kylie jenner and caitlyn jenner in 2015

Caitlyn Jenner made the bold move few celebrity parents do: openly discussing which child she is closest to—and why she isn’t as close to another. Caitlyn spoke on Dear Media’s The Skinny Confidential Him & Her podcast and went into detail about her relationships with her youngest two children, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. She joked that her favorite generally of her six biological and 10 step-children “depends on the day.”

But Kylie, 23, has a special place in her life. “Kylie is just the exception to the rule,” Caitlyn said. “I mean, she’s just—all the stars came together.”

Caitlyn said she sees the most of herself in Kendall, 25. “[We] have a lot in common,” she said. “She’s very athletic. We kind of both had the same attitude towards life.” Then she compared her relationship with Kendall to hers with Kylie. “I get along very well with the two of them, but Kylie and I just seem to be closer most of the time.”

“Kendall’s off kind of doing her thing, and Kylie, like, I had dinner last night at Kylie’s house,” Caitlyn said. “We try to do that once a week, once every two weeks. I go over there and she always has these great meals — prepared, she doesn’t do them. … But they’re so good! It’s better than a restaurant.” Caitlyn and her close friend Sophia Hutchins usually go.

“So [it’s] Sophia, Kylie and myself, just three of us, nobody around …just in the house—she has some beautiful homes,” Caitlyn said. “[We] just have a glass of wine and talk about stuff and this and that. And so from that standpoint, we’re a lot closer. Kendall’s not that—she’s always very kind of a little bit more secretive. We’re still very close, but it’s kind of harder to figure out, where Kylie’s more of an open book.”

Kylie, for what it’s worth, spoke to People about Caitlyn in June 2020. She had glowing things to say about her father. “My dad has always been an inspiration to me, from winning the gold medal at the Olympics to getting her pilot’s license,” Kylie said. “However, watching her live out her true self has been the most inspiring of them all. She’s our hero.”

Kylie also spoke to Harper’s Bazaar for its March 2020 issue about her relationship with Caitlyn. “My dad was the best growing up,” Kylie said. “Never missed a sports game. Took us to school every day, and our school was like 45 minutes from our house.”

Kylie added that she talks to Caitlyn “like every day. Except I couldn’t talk to her for three or four weeks when she did that show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! [the British reality series in which Caitlyn competed in 2019]. I watched clips online. It was hard to be out of touch for that long, but I feel like it was harder for her because she couldn’t see us.”
