We all get lazy sometimes! It's inevitable, right? You just want to kick back and take a load off and not deal with all of the work and tasks and chores and responsibilities you have to do. So when do these periods of laziness occur astrologically?
The first and most obvious occurs for all of us, and that's when the Moon is void-of-course. The Moon is called void-of-course when it makes its last major aspect to another transit (moving) planet in the sign it's currently traveling, and it ends when it enters the next sign. Void-of-course periods can last for minutes to over a day, and during this time, we can all slow down and need time to rest and reflect. It's usually a good period to catch some zzz's!
On a personal level, you can experience a lazy day when you have transit Sun, Mercury, or Venus conjunct, square, or opposite your natal Venus, 2nd house ruler or cusp, or natal Jupiter, or Venus conjunct, square, or opposite your natal Sun, Moon, 1st house cusp or ruler. The energy of Venus and the 2nd house is that of slowing down, enjoying the moment, and lazing the day away. Jupiter can have pretty lazy energy as well, and the 1st house and Sun rule the self in general while the Moon rules your emotional self. So any of these coupling can create a day when you'd rather stay in bed, in your pajamas, binge some ice cream, and get nothing done.
When the transit Moon is in your 12th house, you may experience a 2-3 day period where you'd rather take a step back and get some rest. The 12th house rules sleep as well as the hidden, and the Moon in the 12th house often makes us feel a bit rundown and in need of a break from everything, so we can often feel lazier than usual.
Transit Jupiter squares and oppositions can also produce laziness, but this can last a little longer, 1-2 weeks. During this period, it can be difficult to get anything done at all because you feel really good and really lazy, and may lack the motivation to get moving. Lazy Jupiter usually translates into a lack of motivation and drive.
Long-term laziness can come with transit Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto square or opposite your natal Venus, Jupiter, or 2nd house ruler or cusp. Their aspects last for longer periods (a couple months to a few years), so we can really lack energy and motivation and be ultra lazy. These periods can be out least productive periods if we don't find some motivation. If you simultaneously have a Mars transit or a transit to one of the angles (1st, 4th, 7th, or 10th house cusps), this can help to combat the lack of motivation.
Progressions can also bring out laziness with the progressed Sun, Moon, Mercury, or Venus square or opposite your natal Venus, Jupiter, or 2nd house cusp or ruler, and these aspects will last for a few months. These aspects can traditionally show periods where the break is needed, so the laziness may be a manifestation of just needing the break.

Aries November 2017 Monthly Horoscope
On November 5th, Mercury enters fellow fire sign Sagittarius, and you can come up with big ideas, work on plans for expansion and exploration, and focus on the bright side of life. Your outlook can be more optimistic and expansive, and you can see the possibilities all around you. The Sun joins Mercury in Sagittarius on November 21st, and you can feel your best when you’re expanding your life in new ways, having new experiences, and exploring the world. You can open your mind with learning, teaching, or writing, and you can be more passionate with your beliefs. You may come across as more gregarious, daring, or open-minded.
Pisces is the sign that rules intuition, and this can play out not only in your natal planets, if you have any in Pisces, and not only with your natal Neptune position, the natural ruler of Pisces, but also with the house cusp in your natal chart that has Pisces on it. That house gets some of that Pisces intuition, and it's one where you can - and likely should! - trust your gut, your inner guide, because it's strong there.
This can be slightly complicated if the house cusp is anaretic (29 degrees Pisces) or at a critical degree (4 or 17 degrees Pisces), and you may have to work through insecurity before being able to fully access the intuitive energy (but once you do, you actually have even more intuitive energy than everyone else does!).
If you don't have a house cusp with Pisces on it, that means Pisces is intercepted, fully contained within the house that has Aquarius on the cusp, and that can make it more difficult to access. There's usually a block involved that needs to be removed before you can use the energy. But subconsciously, the intuitive energy can be much, much stronger for you, and learning to trust your instincts can prove to be a powerful helper in your life.
So, where can you trust your gut? Read on:

November's full moon occurs on the 4th at 12:23AM ET in Taurus. The Taurus full moon is generally one that's less emotional, and wants us to be more grounded and calm. We can see what's happening and not be quite so affected by it. But when we do get upset, we can get stuck in it, and calming down can be quite difficult. That's when chocolate comes into play!
We can focus on matters of stability, security, and safety, all the domain of Taurus, and work to remove blocks with them. The more we feel stable, secure, and safe, the less prone we can be to emotional upset and stress. We can also focus on what may be making us feel insecure, and work on releasing that. If we don't, we can feel even more self-doubt.
Taurus is the ruler of money, so we can see some developments financially. We can be rewarded for smart money decisions and actions and responsibility, or punished for financial laziness, irresponsibility, or impulsiveness. We need to get serious about money and handle it the right way.
The full moon is sextile (positive aspect, two signs away) transit (moving) Neptune in Pisces. This helps us to be more compassionate and understanding, and we can do work to help those who can't help themselves. We can also feel more artistic and creative, and imagination and fantasy can be strong. What a day for a daydream . . .
The full moon occurs at 11 degrees 58 minutes in Taurus. The aspects to this full moon are:
Conjunction: 9 degrees 58 minutes - 13 degrees 58 minutes Taurus
Sextile: 9 degrees 58 minutes - 13 degrees 58 minutes Cancer or Pisces
Square: 9 degrees 58 minutes - 13 degrees 58 minutes Leo or Aquarius
Trine: 9 degrees 58 minutes - 13 degrees 58 minutes Virgo or Capricorn
Opposition: 9 degrees 58 minutes - 13 degrees 58 minutes Scorpio
November's new moon occurs on the 18th at 6:42AM ET in Scorpio. The Scorpio new moon can be more intense than your average new moon, and whatever sparks our interest, we can be passionate and obsessed about. When we dive into something, we can go fully, all or nothing, and it can be a great time for anything that requires complete and total dedication and intense passion. It may not be so great for anything that we feel is superficial or that lacks depth though, and we may have less patience for that. We want to be able to dive deep and have plenty to discover on our way to the core.
We can be more researching and investigating, so we may see something hidden revealed, some mystery solved, something dark brought to light (something Russian, perhaps?). On a personal level, this can come out in the areas of life ruled by the house the new moon occurs in with your own chart.
Scorpio rules transformations, so this is a great time to get one started. Focus on a transformation for the better on some area of life or part of yourself and get started. We may see some transformations occurring in the world at large, and this is largely helped by Jupiter freshly in Scorpio for this new moon (about a month in). It's a great time for a transformation or two, to better ourselves and the world.
Scorpio also rules other people's money, so there an be some developments with world finances, debts, loans, inheritances, joint finances, business finances.
The new moon occurs at 26 degrees 19 minutes in Scorpio. The aspects to this new moon are:
Conjunction: 24 degrees 19 minutes - 28 degrees 19 minutes Scorpio
Sextile: 24 degrees 19 minutes - 28 degrees 19 minutes Virgo or Capricorn
Square: 24 degrees 19 minutes - 28 degrees 19 minutes Leo or Aquarius
Trine: 24 degrees 19 minutes - 28 degrees 19 minutes Cancer or Pisces
Opposition: 24 degrees 19 minutes - 28 degrees 19 minutes Taurus
Scorpio has a bad reputation. It's known for being intense, brooding, mysterious, dark, and sometimes, it's hard to look at the bright side in this sign's brooding darkness. But Scorpio energy is intense, and one thing this sign has the capability of doing is intensifying whatever signs it's coupled with, creating an area where you have almost a superpower.
This can be most obvious when you have Scorpio in the triad - Sun, Moon, or Rising sign - and Scorpio intensifies the other signs involved. But you can also see it if you have Scorpio planets in a house (intensifying the house), planets in the 8th house (intensifying the planet), or Pluto conjuncting a natal planet (intensifying the planet).
Let's go through them:
Scorpio + Aries = Super Warrior
Both of these signs were once ruled by the same planet, Mars, before Pluto came along and took over Scorpio, so it makes sense for this coupling to be the super warrior. You're someone with incredible strength of will, who can push through anything, and have perhaps the best chance of making what you want happen.
Scorpio + Taurus = Super Abundant
Both of these signs rule money (Taurus ruling yours, Scorpio ruling shared), so when they're paired together, you may possess a great ability to create weather, abundance, prosperity, and utilize the resources available to you in a way that no one else can even begin to fathom.
Scorpio + Gemini = Super Brain
These signs seem like they're opposites externally, but Scorpio is unrelenting focus on one thing and Gemini is scattered focus lots of things, so put them together and they balance each other out so perfectly that you have the capability of having a super brain, a mind that can't be competed with, and great mental strength.
Scorpio + Cancer = Super Nurturer
As these are two water signs, they have a natural affinity for one another and therefore work together well, so their coupling can help you to be a super nurturer or mother hen, someone who is the matriarch/patriarch that your whole support system looks up to and values, and who can reach out and touch everyone on a deep emotional level.
Scorpio + Leo = Super Creative
Leo is the sign of creativity, so these two paired up together can make you such a creative type, you can channel everything you feel (and all of the intensity) into your creative outlets and create masterpieces that convey the depth and passion you have inside of you in a way that's relatable.
Scorpio + Virgo = Super Worker
Virgo is the sign of work, so when coupled with Scorpio, you can be super productive, super efficient, super detailed, super attentive, and this helps you to get way more done than most of us, and attain a level of power and control over your work and daily life that most of us can't touch.
Scorpio + Libra = Super Partner
Libra rules relationships while Scorpio rules intimacy, so these two bonding make you someone who can be an amazing partner in personal and professional relationships, someone both committed and passionate, understanding and fair, and willing to be there for others no matter what, almost instinctively knowing when someone needs you.
Scorpio + Sagittarius = Super Wise
Sagittarius is a student of life and Scorpio is passionate focus, so put them together and this combination has the greatest potential to create a wise old owl of a person, someone with a depth and breadth of knowledge gained through life experience, and an understanding of the most delicate and intricate complexities of life.
Scorpio + Capricorn = Super Success
Unrelenting focus of Scorpio meets disciplined ambition of Capricorn, what else can you expect?! This combination offers the greatest opportunity to create such impressive success in life in whatever you choose to focus on, whatever goals you have, because you'll keep at it no matter what and do whatever it takes.
Scorpio + Aquarius = Super Expert
Aquarius is a mental air sign that loves to learn as much as possible about something, so matched with passionate Scorpio, and you become someone capable of being a top expert in their field, someone that everyone else cites and quotes and respects and listens to and looks up to as the one who knows all.
Scorpio + Pisces = Super Mystic
Pisces is the sign of the mystic, but can sometimes have difficulty focusing that, so adding in Scorpio's unrelenting focus helps Pisces to realize the full potential it has to be a super mystic, someone deeply spiritual, in tune with the subtle vibrations of the Universe and of people, and with an intense understanding of the soul.
