November 2017 – Monthly Horoscope Summaries
Awakening to feelings – even old ones – feel new this month, dear Aries. This is a powerful period for self-discovery as well as intimate connections. You’re tidying up on an emotional level, making room for the good stuff to enter your life. However, partnerships require some back and forth, adjustments, and conflicts before they become more comfortable. Venus in Scorpio from the 7th forward can be described as pleasantly intense, and since this means Venus is in your solar eighth house, you’re likely to enjoy your private life more than usual this month. This is also a fabulous month for learning, expanding your knowledge of a subject, taking courses, and connecting with people who broaden your horizons or who you help guide or teach. This theme increases as the month progresses.
Mars in Libra all month is a bit combative and not excellent for personal energy and motivation – you can feel that others are steering more than is comfortable. There can be problems dealing with difficult people and pursuing an important goal, or there can be a disagreement on priorities now. If you fear that you will not get your way, there can be a temptation to manipulate. Resentments might surface, but this also gives you the chance to see what anger or hurt you’re holding onto. However, you do get the chance to sort out interpersonal conflicts with this transit. Mars has a way of pulling up and directly handling matter that’s been hiding or working just below the surface of things.
This can be an excellent month for paying off debt or gaining support if needed. People are investing in you now, and this is true, in a general sense, for the entire year ahead of you! Even so, you’ve been fighting to be independent in recent years, and now you’re feeling unusually stable and confident in your independence.
Events and situations can occur this month that lead to the strengthening of a relationship or connection with someone, particularly as Venus and Jupiter align in your intimacy sector on the 12th. Promotional activities, counseling, and financial dealings can be successful. There may be news of money coming through, or this energy can play out as a special, open-hearted connection made. You might find joy in an intimate moment or through self-honesty. Some of the usual barriers and boundaries dissolve as Venus connects with Neptune on the 15-16. You may be attaching more deeply to the things you feel especially passionate about. New insights about yourself or an important person in your life can be motivating and heartwarming. You find it easier to open up about a passion of yours or about a matter that you’ve been keeping to yourself.
This is an important time for accepting others’ help, sharing responsibilities, and combining resources or talents to advance your goals and benefit most from your experiences. Consolidating makes sense now. Allow your intuition to flow naturally and spontaneously. You’ll find that you gain a better understanding of people and business or money, less through analysis this month and more through using your intuition. Finances may improve through unusual, hidden, or unexpected channels, and you’re tuning in quite beautifully to trends that can help generate business ideas and approaches. You are displaying more patience than usual with the people in your life, and you may very well be seeing beauty in people, places, and situations that you hadn’t seen before.
Around the 21st, activities that promote emotional renewal can be in focus. For others, your perspective of a financial or dependency issue helps you make better decisions. Look to the talents and resources of others or a partner to see if these can benefit business. This might be a wonderful time for a collaboration.
From the 22nd, you’re more outgoing and ready for action. Learning new things or refreshing your knowledge of a subject can be exciting and rewarding. Jupiter is moving into a harmonious aspect with Neptune – an influence that will support you until August 2018. Imaginative activities or behind the scenes efforts can be rewarding, either spiritually or materially, and possibly both. Generosity, faith, and compassion increase. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good. You might have a fantasy or dream that motivates you to improve yourself and your life. With Neptune turning direct at the same time this aspect comes into play, you’re ready to work towards making a dream come true.
November is an excellent time to cooperate, mingle, and enjoy relationships, dear Taurus. At the same time, it’s a busy month for work, chores, duties, and getting in shape. There are stellar influences for partnering this month. This is a time for bringing more pride, charm, warmth, affection, and good humor to your relationships. You’re also inclined to attract strong, helpful, growth-oriented, and encouraging people into your life, or your own behavior draws out these qualities in people you already know well. You’re motivated to set things right between you and a partner or good friend, leading to positive, rewarding interactions.
Changes in your relationship status or simply a new and improved take on relationships come after the New Moon on the 18th. Paying more attention to a partner’s endeavors can be important this month. In fact, when others do well, you do well this month — it’s a time of the year when your fate seems to intertwine closely with others’ fate.
Mars spends the entire month in your work and health sector, and that’s where the hard work theme comes in. Even though there is a stronger focus on your social life in November, you have a lot of tasks and daily affairs to straighten out. You have a great deal of energy for taking care of your everyday life, improving your routines, and attending to health matters. Mind you, you can also be very strong-minded about how to handle your work and health, and this means it’s better to work at an independent pace if possible. If not, you would do well to get some help or to tone things down just a little if you are pushing yourself too hard. As well, there can be a conflict of beliefs or opinion with someone with whom you spend a lot of time, and this may affect you more deeply than is healthy for you. Watch for stress and rigidity affecting your health and peace of mind this month.
People seem to want to help you out or be around you from the 7th forward, with standout days for partnering and connecting the 12th, 15-16, and 21st of November. Venus and Jupiter align in your partnership sector, and this can attract good vibes from others. If you want to heal a relationship that went wrong in the past or arrive at a state of forgiveness or a truce with someone, it’s a great time to do so. People are seeing you in a far more favorable light now. This can be a good time for attracting a pleasant or helpful person into your life, and also for enhancing close existing relationships. There can be a real drive to find happiness or to improve a partnership. Making things right with others can go a long way towards building your own confidence. Your powers of attraction are high. You are at your most companionable and people tend to be on your side. Connections you make now can inspire and delight you. You may be seeing new layers to a relationship or a person, leading to higher understanding and bonding.
Mercury moves into your intimacy sector on the 5th, and the Sun follows suit on the 21-22, turning your attention to commitments, finances, shared resources, and deepening of feelings. This is an excellent time for tidying up your emotional life. Making room for positive attachments, connections, and emotions should be a goal now, which means putting the negative stuff behind you. While you might begin November with some misgivings or problems related to friends and lovers, the last week of the month is excellent for building bridges and connecting with people who build you up rather than drag you down. Of course, it’s never wise to surround yourself only with yes-men, but it is a good idea to consider whether people have your interests in mind. Fortunately, with a Jupiter-Neptune transit coming into influence now and lasting until August 2018, you’re beginning an especially favorable period for friendship and acceptance. Neptune’s direct turn on the 22nd helps unblock a friendship problem or stall, and the same may be true of a project.
Work, attention to detail, routines, and health are all in sharp focus and well-favored in November, dear Gemini. However, the month shouldn’t be short on fun. With Mars in a companion sign and your creative sector all month, you’ll find it natural to get out and about, share ideas and creations, date, pursue hobbies, and enjoy yourself. As busy as you are, there is a lovely buzz surrounding you. You’re attracting positive attention, and your charm is natural and strong.
With the Sun (until the 22nd), Venus (from the 7th), and Jupiter (all month) in your solar sixth house, you’re bringing more pride, focus, attention, love, warmth, and joy to your work, services, health pursuits, and everyday affairs. You’ll enjoy your daily routines and want to make them work for you. New work or health goals and pursuits/projects are especially favored after the New Moon on the 18th. However, you are in good shape all month for making improvements and taking steps. While the month is powerful for busy work, listen to signals to rest, recoup your energy, and take it easy around the Full Moon on the 3-4. Find a balance. Overdoing it doesn’t help you in the long run. The 3-4 is a powerful time, in fact, for a vital hunch, vision, or emotional discovery.
You feel particularly motivated to do meaningful work or to make your work more meaningful to you this month, especially around the 12th. There can be compliments or rewards for your skills and efforts now that fuel your motivation further. Generosity with your services is a theme now and, to some degree, all year. Of course, you’ll want to avoid going overboard with this, but loving the work you do, services you provide, or support you give really shows in the finished product. If you need help, gaining cooperation to complete chores or maintenance can be easy now. Good humor helps you heal, and confidence leads to improved health. Be open to making connections and socializing in places you never thought to do so. Sparks of attraction or love might even occur while pursuing your daily routines or health goals. Being busy feels right in November.
Bringing some artistry to the work you do can be in focus, particularly around the 15-16. You seem to come to solutions instinctively and not necessarily in logical ways, applying your creativity to practical matters. There can be unusual circumstances connecting you with the right people, projects, and information now, particularly when it comes to work and health issues. Business can benefit if you take into account spiritual or humanitarian goals that you may have been overlooking. You have a stronger desire to make and produce beautiful things, and you may be thinking about ways to turn dreams into products, systems, or plans. Around the 21st, you’re in an excellent position to investigate or get to the heart of a matter. This is a time for delving a little deeper into your work or health issues.
Neptune’s direct turn on the 22nd can help unblock a career matter, direction, goal, or major project. If you’ve been on the fence about a path to take, you’ll begin to move in the right direction. Helping you along is a Jupiter-Neptune trine that’s just beginning now, but will stick with you until August 2018, helping restore your faith in your work, career, direction, life path, and long-term plans. As well, if you’ve been worried about not meeting responsibilities or performing up to par, this aspect will help you pull it all together, whether an actual direction comes along, or your faith that one will eventually happen. Even if you are not clear of your path, you feel confident that it will unfold naturally. Your reputation or professional image can improve as a result. This is also a good time for bringing more creativity, imagination, and idealism into the work you are doing. A career project may begin to move forward. A vocation or life path/direction may seem to fall into place quite magically during this period. A partner or relationship can be motivation to find suitable work.
Mercury moves into your partnership sector on the 5th, and the Sun follows suit on the 21-22, bringing close relationships into sharper focus. You’ll want to pair up to make important decisions, or you simply enjoy collaborating and negotiating more thoroughly now. Saturn has been in your partnership for a few years but will move on in December. You’ll have a stronger sense of where you stand when it comes to close relationships or partnerships now, and you’re putting extra energy into others’ plans and needs. November is excellent for cementing friendships and alliances.
You have a lovely showing in your romance and creativity sector this month, dear Cancer, making November a fabulous time for enjoying yourself and exploring your creativity. It helps that you’re making pleasing impressions on others on many different levels as planets highlight your natural charm and encourage self-expression. The Full Moon on the 3-4 is good for recognizing your need for friends and camaraderie, coming into touch with your feelings for someone, and invites or social events.
While you’re in good shape for entertainment, love, creativity, and hobbies in some way all month, new beginnings along these lines are most appropriate after the New Moon on the 18th. This lunation brings new energy and a take-charge attitude to your creative world, and in the week following it, you may be pushing forward a hobby, romance, or creative pursuit. This can be a brand new beginning or a reboot or fresh start. Look for ways to express and enjoy yourself more fully.
Standout days for love, romance, games, and self-expression include the 12th, 15-16, and 21st. You’re in great shape for personal attractiveness, and if you want to get closer to someone, this can be a time of greater understanding, forgiveness, and others giving you the benefit of the doubt. Your confidence increases and you could be feeling especially generous, with your heart, time, happiness, or money. It’s the right time to inject some extra oomph, romance, affection, or fun into a relationship or your life in general. Work matters also improve, and while the month’s focus on fun is real, you’re also motivated to take care of business — a theme that grows as the month advances. There may be financial or work-related travel. November is good for studies, legal matters, and public relations or promotional activities.
Your special kind of gentleness is more appealing to others than usual in November, and you’re tuned right into your feelings. You find it easier to enjoy yourself when you let go of negative thoughts or unreasonable expectations. You are expressing yourself in ways that are especially relatable to others. Feelings intensify, or a commitment becomes more likely to a project or relationship around the 21st. A bond or project can fill you with a stronger sense of purpose.
All month, you have Mars in your family and home sector — a transit that can work on different levels. One way it often plays out involves extra energy and motivation for home projects and family activities. You invest a lot of your energy in your personal life. Another expression of Mars in this area of your solar chart involves difficulties asserting your desires or expressing anger, which leads to choppiness and frustrated expression or the tendency to hold things in and let them fester! While it’s not an ideal time for a direct approach to getting what you want since confidence isn’t entirely there, it’s best to avoid internalizing anger too much. Another way Mars in the fourth house works involves working in or on the home, and this can be an excellent time for making progress. If there have been difficulties with family, problems tend to come up to the surface now – they’re unavoidable at this point, which can be hectic and possibly inconvenient, but ultimately refreshing.
Mercury and the Sun move into your work and health sector on the 5th and 22nd, respectively, and this turns your attention to your daily routines, work, and personal well-being. You’re in good shape for getting your life and body into shape! The desire to step up or begin health and fitness programs is strong, and you’re putting more heart, intelligence, and pride in your work and daily routines.
You’ll also benefit from a Jupiter-Neptune trine aspect that comes into influence now and stays with you up until August 2018. You enjoy a sense of being re-energized on spiritual levels and a building of faith in your future. Travel, educational, or publishing matters begin to move forward now. Matters of the heart can be magical. There can be beautiful connections made through travel or educational endeavors or shared adventures. A lover, child, or friend can open your mind or heart to new experiences. Creatively speaking, you are well-received, and your audience is likely to expand. Your sense of drama expands now, as well.
The month ahead is excellent for connecting with family and bringing more joy to your home life, dear Leo. This is a time for prioritizing your personal life and comfort levels and reaping the rewards for doing so. You might also reorganize or declutter your personal space in such a way that you can think more clearly and feel more comfortable and free. Family may be especially cooperative or willing to lend you a hand with your endeavors. Brand new efforts related to your domestic world and matters pertaining to long-term security and comfort get off to the best start in the week following the New Moon on the 18th, but you’re in good shape for home matters all month. Long-term career projects that sustain us and/or our dependents for many years to come often start in this sector of your solar chart. Decorating, entertaining, and making life a little more beautiful, harmonious, and comfortable can be in focus now.
While there is such a strong focus on quiet time and settling in for you this month, Mars in your communications sector throughout November keeps you sufficiently connected and busy. You may be writing prolifically or studying hard this month, for example. Siblings, acquaintances, friends in the neighborhood, and classmates can figure strongly. There can be excellent new ideas and subjects that capture your interest. Watch that you’re not holding on so tightly to a specific belief or viewpoint that it causes you troubles and frustration. You may not want to budge on an idea, schedule, or method when letting go even temporarily, or being flexible, may be what’s best for you to gain perspective or calm your nerves. However, for the most part, your passion for a project or endeavor works in your favor. You can move mountains with this kind of motivation.
The Full Moon on the 3-4 calls your strong attention to your worldly affairs, goals, and ventures, temporarily pulling you out of your own little world. This can be dramatic if you’ve been falling behind with your duties but can be an entirely pleasant wake-up call for many. Reward or recognition for your accomplishments may be in the offing now.
There can be wonderful bonding opportunities this month, with standout days for your personal life the 12th, 15-16, and 21st. This can be a time for more fun, play, creativity, and warmth in your home environment. For some of you, your family grows. Strengthening ties and finding peace with your past can figure strongly for many. Taking a trip down memory lane, visiting childhood friends or locales, and family activities can be satisfying now. Home life can be an area of vast improvement, particularly along the lines of clearing or opening up space. This is a time for emphasizing cooperation, trust, and faith. You enjoy activities that focus on comfort and security or familiarity most. You might want to indulge in a healthy escape now, although you tend to prefer time at home, so this may very well be your destination!
The emphasis on your solar fourth house also plays out on a personal, internal level. You see yourself and inner needs and desires more honestly now. Your security and comfort with yourself can attract others to you. There is more intensity in your interactions and/or your love and feeling nature such that you may skip over small talk and get straight to the heart of matters. This can be a good time to recognize emotional blocks and seek out ways to move past them.
Mercury and the Sun move into your sector of romance and creative expression on the 5th and 22nd, respectively, bringing a playful, creative, and romantic theme to your life. The last week of the month is also influenced by a Jupiter-Neptune trine coming into orb and Neptune’s direct turn. The Jupiter-Neptune transit brings beautiful energy to your intimate life and will stick with you until August 2018. You’re likely to feel reinvigorated on a spiritual level now. A more relaxed approach to problem-solving can lead to new insight and unusual but useful solutions. You’re turning a corner regarding matters of shared assets, support, and boundaries in relationships. There may be increased resources available to you for improving your home life or establishing yourself.
November is excellent for studies, personal interests, transportation, communication, and connections, dear Virgo. New initiatives may be best saved for the week following the New Moon on the 18th, but you’re certainly going to be busy before (and after) then. Siblings, neighbors, or classmates may also be in stronger focus in November. You’re in a grand position for sorting out your daily affairs and collecting information, although there will be times when you feel overwhelmed by a quick pace, a distracted mind, or a lack of focus. Experimentation with ideas and projects is good now, but don’t overdo this and sacrifice the calm in your world!
Your financial ruler, Venus, is in its own house until the 7th, making the first week of November fortunate for money matters. You’re in an excellent position to make better use of the resources you have plus money or gifts may be incoming as well. From the 7th forward, making connections as well as word of mouth and recommendations, in general, tend to improve your bottom line.
Mars spends the entire month in your resources sector, and while this is fabulous for working hard to make money or improve your comfort levels, it can sometimes lead to impulsive purchases. Use this energy well and consider this a month for discovering, developing, and employing your natural talents. You’re incredibly resourceful now, and if you feel you deserve more, you’ll seek it out. For example, it may be a time when you realize you’ve been underselling yourself or a product or service. Independent work or self-employment is favored right now. When it comes to relationships, you’re also inclined to fight for what you’re worth. Conflicts about money, values, or life choices can arise as Mars and Pluto form a square on the 18-19.
There is some beautiful action in your solar third house in November, and standout days are the 12th, 15-16, and 21st. Opportunities might emerge in the form of new interests, connections, learning, creative projects, speaking engagements, promotion of work, or even a romantic relationship made through school or online. Success tends to come through word of mouth, networking, and bright ideas. You have excellent opportunities to make friends and influence people who are particularly receptive and appreciative of your ideas, by the way, so be sure to share them. Your good cheer and optimism can help strengthen relationships with siblings, co-workers, family, and even neighbors. Making an effort to reach out to people you’ve lost touch with can be well worth your while. You might discover information that allows you to improve home life. Around mid-month, a partner or friend’s gentle touch or conversation, or a beautiful fantasy can help you relax. There is good energy for expressing your care and concern verbally, and for getting a warm message across.
Your mindset is primarily positive and your morale great this month, and in a general sense, this will be the case for the year ahead. Pleasant feedback from others motivates you further. You’re inclined to extend sweet gestures to others and they to you, and you might get into contact with someone who brings a little more joy into your life.
Mercury and the Sun move into your home and family sector on the 5th and 22nd, respectively, and you’ll be seeking out a little more comfort, familiarity, safety, and feeling of belonging than usual. With Neptune’s direct turn on the 22nd and a Jupiter-Neptune transit coming into influence in the last week of the month, you’re enjoying a refreshment of your spirit and building of your faith in a relationship or friendship. Focusing on the positive, beautiful, and magical qualities of life and love can be rewarding. Now and in the coming months, you’re in great shape for sharing your ideas, writing, and pursuing or joining a cause.
You have a nice showing in your resources sector in November, dear Libra, making it a strong month for financial affairs and taking care of business. You’re taking more pride in — and deriving more enjoyment from — your work, money, possessions, valuables, and ability to earn or improve your life. This can also be a time for gaining some appreciation or admiration for your talents and efforts. The week following the New Moon on the 18th is better for starting fresh and taking charge, particularly of business, projects, or money matters and spending habits. However, all month to some degree, you’re in an excellent position to make improvements to your life in these areas.
A Full Moon in your intimacy sector on the 3-4 is eye-opening. Emotions can flood your consciousness at this time, and you may very well awaken to feelings for someone or a passion for a particular project that become undeniable. For some of you, this Full Moon is a financial one. It’s a time for recognizing your financial obligations.
The month begins with Venus and Mars in your sign, bringing your personality, charm, and attractiveness into the spotlight. Others are noticing you, and you’re feeling a little more decided and confident than usual. This is a strong time for partnering, negotiating, and gaining cooperation from others. Be sure to put yourself out there, make connections and appearances, and pursue some of your personal plans, needs, and desires. Venus leaves your sign on the 7th but Mars stays in Libra all month. While settling in and getting comfortable is a strong theme in November, you’re also in a great position to pursue your desires and assert your wishes. Ideally, you can funnel all this energy into something productive. At times, though, when Mars in your sign is challenged, you can struggle with excess energy, misdirected anger, or impatience. Don’t let these things trip you up.
Money is not just about security, but also about freedom to you now and in the year ahead as Jupiter transits your resources sector. You’re in particularly good shape for handling your affairs on the 12th, 15-16, and 21st. You may attract gifts, recognition for your work, bonuses, or pay raises. You may be enjoying a feeling of abundance or a stronger drive to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
The first half of the month is especially good for getting an overall sense of your next step or next move on the business end of things. You can be feeling generous, with others and yourself! Opportunities to make more money could emerge for some of you. Intuition is excellent for business and health. You have an accurate sense for trends, wants, and needs. You’re also in the position to judge value and to determine which projects and things benefit you the most, as well as those that can be put behind you. November is a winning month for making important changes to your image as well as with money, resources, and talents.
Mercury and the Sun move into your communications sector on the 5th and 22nd, respectively, effectively pulling you out of your shell and piquing your curiosity about people and information swirling around you. This is a more sociable time for you, generally speaking. In the last week of November, Neptune turns direct and forms a lovely trine aspect to Jupiter. This aspect will move into and away from exactitude until August 2018 and will support your work, studies, and health throughout this period. Your desire for harmony, beauty, and balance increases and you’re ready to take steps and action to make these things happen. Efforts to improve your work, health, and daily routines help clear your mind and free you from guilt, and ideas for making these changes are not always traditional, but they do work. The key may be a renewed faith in what you’re doing, or you feel confident that more meaningfulness is on its way. A more imaginative or spiritual approach to your work can be rewarding now and in the coming months.
While November is typically your power month, dear Scorpio, you’re expressing some reserve this year with Mars in your privacy sector all month. After several weeks of keeping to yourself more than usual, you’re considerably more engaged and ready to make things happen this month in spite of this. Mars will enter your sign on December 9th, awakening your motivation, fire, and energy. For now, you still get noticed and have more personal presence than usual, but you’re not yet full-speed ahead. While you could be wrestling with some decisions, you can, in fact, be a real dynamo if you also take care of your needs for extra solitude and time to yourself.
In the first couple of days of November, there can be a dilemma revolving around money, resources, and self-respect in conflict with your need for recreation, or with romance, children, and creative pursuits. You may become aware of oversights, overindulgence, or insecurity in an area of your life that now requires a reality check and some buckling down so that it doesn’t drag you down.
The Full Moon on the 4th is particularly potent for relationships and awakening to feelings about partnerships or alliances in your life. It’s an excellent time for consulting and connecting. Your appeal is exceptional now.
Others are noticing and hearing you loud and clear until the 5th, after which you’re content with going about your own business. In fact, from this date forward, you’re especially keen about how to handle your money, business, resources, and practical affairs. Common sense reigns. Locking something down, business-wise, might happen around the 27th. Consider writing, teaching, or otherwise communicating your ideas to improve your financial status.
Fortunately, you find it more comfortable than usual to pour your efforts into the right projects to build your resources and improve your work.
The New Moon on the 18th is in your sign and can prompt a sense of a new personal beginning. Again, with Mars in the sign just behind yours, you may not feel as ready to leap into something new just yet. However, it’s a time for shining and for feeling more in control of your life, mainly having to do with your image, body, and personality. A new personal image, look, or manner may go over well in the week ahead of this lunation. Aim to begin your solar year with confidence and mindfulness. Still, you may want to avoid overly demanding and competitive situation in the meantime.
Venus shines in your sign from the 7th, and this increases your appeal further. Special days this month are the 12th, 15-17, and 20-21. These center around Venus in your sign forming strengthening aspects. It’s one of the best periods of the year for attracting the right people, situations, and resources into your life. Around the 12th, gifts may be in the offing, your timing is excellent, and you can attract the right social or affectionate attention or situations to you. It’s a great time for sharing your feelings, happiness, art, talents, and joy. Mid-month, your personality is framed in a particularly pleasing way. Around the 20-21, you’re naturally drawn to mutually beneficial or simply agreeable social situations, and in a fortunate position for attracting or building/healing a relationship and for building upon and improving a pet project. You are persuasive and personally compelling. You’re ready to put your heart into whatever moves you.
Mercury moves into your sector of resources, natural talents, and self-worth on the 5th and the Sun follows suit on the 21st, stimulating a desire to build up or develop your resources and improve your bottom line. You’re in a much better position to grow your money, and you’ll be taking this to the bank in the New Year. Making your life more secure is a big draw, but so is spending! Fortunately, you are more rational than desirous with money now, so you’re likely to come out ahead.
While your social life can be lively in November, dear Sagittarius, there are many indicators that you need time to yourself. The Sun in your privacy sector until the 21st is one important signal of preparation rather than new action, and Venus in the same sector from the 7th forward suggests that close relationships may require some personal sacrifices or privacy, or that much is going on beneath the surface or behind the scenes, particularly having to do with your feelings and affections. You could be reassessing your feelings and attachments now, or a strong focus on the past. Mind you, kept in check this can be quite positive and growth-oriented — and entirely helpful!
Taking some personal downtime as you wind down your solar year and prepare for the next one makes sense now, but with Mars in your social sector all month and Mercury in your sign from the 5th, you’re not hiding away, either. From the 21-22, the Sun is in your sign, boosting your personal power and increasing your influence. It also brings out the need to share your ideas and use the power of words to improve your life. Use this extra boost of visibility to further your plans. It’s a fine time for considering new personal initiatives, making changes to your presentation or appearance, and updating your year-ahead resolutions, although you may want to wait until after the New Moon in your sign on December 18th for brand new beginnings. Mind you, Mars in your social sector can stir up any lingering troubles or resentments with friends, associates, or networks. However, facing things head-on is a specialty of Mars and can help settle problems once and for all.
Insecurities, bad habits, or inconsistency in your routines may become clear in the first few days of November, and you may decide to take positive steps towards dealing with these things for your better health and frame of mind. The Full Moon on the 4th is a lovely, creative one that awakens your mind to the positive things about your work and health or daily life. It can be a good time to throw yourself into a service you provide or the work you do and reap the rewards from so doing. This may also serve as a wake-up call if you’ve been avoiding your duties.
If you need to handle a private matter or deal with an ending or a problem from the past, the week following the New Moon on the 18th is powerful. The Sun in your sign from the 21-22 at this time is also helpful since you have a strong desire to move forward and begin anew.
Mercury spends much of November in your sign but just when it’s moving towards the final degrees of Sagittarius in December, it will turn retrograde. This extends its stay in your sign until mid-January, so you’ll get plenty of time to say your piece. However, keep in mind that you may end up second-guessing some of the quick conclusions you draw from mid-November forward.
Venus traveling in your privacy sector from the 7th is certainly a low-key place for Venus, but it has some wonderful benefits, particularly as you now have Jupiter in this same sector of your solar chart this year. Synchronicity may be in play around the 12th, such as an unusual coincidence occurring that brings an additional padding of joy to your life. A private matter can also stimulate happy feelings. Helping others, performing a generous act or service, possibly behind the scenes or anonymously, can be satisfying. Some of you could revive an old relationship or project, or find out about a secret attraction. Love can be rich, even if (and perhaps even because) it’s complicated. There may be the discovery of an untapped resource, a freeing from a burden or unhealthy attachment, or a feeling of forgiveness and understanding that warms your insides. The 15-17 is another potentially rewarding period for a sense of peace in your personal life or an understanding about a difficult matter from the past. Release or relief is possible now. Relationships with friends are especially supportive around the 21st.
The month is also lovely for creative pursuits, especially if you want to establish yourself in a particular field. You can benefit from more structure in the areas of children, romance, and creativity or hobbies. You are balancing responsibility and recreation more evenly now, and this truly works in your favor.
You have a favorable month ahead of you for making friends, dear Capricorn, and personal influence with peers, associates, and groups. Connections made this month are likely to be especially rewarding and beneficial, and this theme applies in a general sense to the year ahead. New and improved friendships are probable, and some of you may meet a love interest through social networking, groups, and friends. November can be a time of social refreshment or renewal, particularly after the New Moon on the 18th. While happiness goals and your social life are in focus, you have two other larger themes with you in November: heightened ambition and an increasing need for renewal, healing, and downtime. In fact, this can be a well-rounded month if you treat these themes as complementary rather than competing.
Solutions to problems related to sensitivity to others’ commentary or criticism are on the horizon as a Saturn-Chiron aspect forms for the last time (not for another 20 years) early month. The Full Moon on the 3-4 is brilliant for your romantic and creative life. It’s a fertile, creative lunation that happens to occur in your sector of self-expression, play, romance, hobbies, leisure, games, and entertainment. Feelings blossom and might even be a pleasant surprise. It’s a good time to showcase something you’re proud of.
You’re bringing more energy and authority to your career or public life this month, but you’re also diversifying. You can expect more invites or communications from people in your networks. Long-term plans look exciting now. In the week following November 18’s New Moon, you might decide to begin a new venture or join a group or team. For some, this is about renewing old ties or projects.
Seek out more time or manage your time better for sharing, connecting, and community this month for best results. Look for people and situations that build you up, although they may very well find you first with Venus in your social sector from the 7th forward, aligning with Jupiter and harmonizing with Neptune and Pluto. This is a time for feeding your soul and reminding yourself that happiness counts! Do watch for overcommitting. Otherwise, this can be a lovely month for personal enjoyment and rewarding friendships or causes and plans.
You may enjoy inspiration and understanding from friends, or you might take on the role of supporter or inspirer. A Jupiter-Neptune aspect is coming into play and will be a favorable influence until August 2018. You’re likely to begin feeling its positive vibes this month. It’s strong for mending broken fences and building bridges, especially through your increased communications, gestures, and involvement with others. Offering your expertise to colleagues can open up great rewards for you. You stand to gain more respect and appreciation well as confidence. Contributing and sharing become more and more important to you and especially satisfying. Better communications or transportation options may be part of this. You’re also in good shape in November for earnings through sharing your ideas, guiding, teaching, and positive word of mouth. Fortunately, Neptune’s direct motion from the 22nd forward helps mobilize a stuck project or brings in the news or results you’ve been anticipating.
Finances look quite good even though Uranus remains retrograde for a while longer. Looking behind you for unfinished projects and ideas or works in progress can be lucrative now. A steadier home environment or living conditions help free you of some worry or frustration.
Mercury moves into your privacy sector on the 5th, and the Sun follows suit on the 21-22, and you crave more and more space or time to yourself to think and process. Improving emotional health is in focus now, and this can be an important time for researching and finding alternative ways of managing stress or simply making more time for rest and reflection. You’ll find it easier and, in fact, more rewarding, to take the back seat for the time being.
You have a nice showing in your career and reputation sector this month, dear Aquarius. You’re prouder than usual of your accomplishments, and people are drawn to you and are pleased with what you’re doing. You also benefit from Mars in harmony to your sign all of November and a Saturn-Uranus trine that stabilizes and supports you. In fact, you’re in a fabulous position to attend to the major structures of your life. This is a time to give extra attention to career, long-term goals, rules, responsibilities, and performance. It can also be a time of greater visibility with the public or in your professional life.
For some, this month is about career advancement, with more of this favorable energy to come in the year ahead, a boost of reputation, making connections, and making clear advances towards attaining your goals. It’s a period for showing off a little without really having to do much beyond what your instincts tell you to do.
A couple of challenges to deal with this month involve attempting to bring more order to your business or finances and avoiding the tendency to fixate on issues that keep you from thriving. Look for ways to strengthen your feelings about your income, value, and talents or abilities. Try to keep fears at bay if they’re preventing you from pursuing an activity or challenge that you’re passionate about. Watch that you are not your own worst enemy by saying or doing things that invite adverse reactions.
Fortunately, Mars supports you energetically throughout November, helping you out. You know this kind of supportive energy is working when you’re not noticing it! You assert yourself and pursue your desires naturally, confidently, and smoothly. This is a good month for exploring new activities.
The Full Moon on the 3-4 is a call, however, to check in and spend quality time with family, around the home, or attending to your personal life. The more you’ve been avoiding or too busy to pay attention to these areas of your life, the more dramatic this lunation is. Feelings are powerful and affection blossoms for loved ones.
Putting yourself out into the world with confidence around the 12th, 15-17, and 21st especially reaps the rewards. This is a winning time for long-term vision, career, and reputation matters. It’s a good period for recognition, benefiting from word of mouth, managing others, and tapping into an ambition. You’re feeling better about your future or goals. There can be romantic or friendly connections made through public exposure or business. This is a critical time for opening yourself up to new possibilities. Connecting and cooperating with others are the keys to reward and success now. This theme will continue in a general sense throughout the upcoming year. You can gain new information and valuable insights into your relationships, projects, and money situation. In leadership or professional roles, extra charm or intrigue surround you. You’ll find that the conviction behind your desires and ideas attracts support from others. Past good deeds can bring rewards.
Family can be more supportive of your career or goals in November or may be enjoying personal successes now which please you. People in high places tend to hold you in good favor as well. Even with this extra attention, you’re increasingly feeling more independent.
Mercury moves into your friendship sector on the 5th, and then the Sun follows suit on the 21-22, and your attention turns to enjoyment, friends, teamwork, and networking. It’s also a strong time for bringing a stronger spirit of friendship to a partnership or pairing up with a friend. The last week of the month introduces a theme that will stick with you for some time, and that’s excellent for career, finances, and friendships. Neptune’s direct move on the 22nd can mobilize funds or a money-making pursuit.
November brings a pleasant focus on renewing your spirit, reaching out beyond your usual activities, and learning, dear Pisces. You’re also moving into a period for increased attention to career or long-term goals. You have wonderful representation in your sector of spirit and adventure, stirring up your curiosity. For some, a getaway, a new course, or a publishing project can figure strongly. After the New Moon on the 18th, you’re in good shape for brand new ventures or a renewed commitment along these lines. For many, November is encouraging for taking on a new interest or exploring different perspectives or beliefs. Feed your mind, enjoy new experiences, and brush up on your knowledge for best results. Keep your ear to the ground as helpful information is circulating.
Opportunities to impress, publish or promote your services can figure strongly, and in a general sense, this theme continues for a full year ahead of you. Mars transits your intimacy and sharing sector all month, and this brings new energy ton a deep relationship. Your desires or an intimate relationship transform, deepen, and grow a little more complex or layered — or you’re more fully embracing your desires and exploring your more profound needs and wants. If you have money and ownership matters to clear up, this is a time for doing so. Those who need support feel more confident about getting it now.
The main challenges of November involve determining when to stand your ground and when to accept current conditions as you draw upon patience for achieving your goals. Mid-month, you may be dealing with buried frustration or anger, and it can be difficult not to dwell! What starts as a passionate feeling about something or someone could quickly turn into an obsession, which can be the source of a lot of unnecessary stress and pressure in your life. Difficulties with a friend or your social life can surface now for your attention.
The month brings excellent energy for education, trips, publishing, sharing ideas, and blogging. Your mindset affects your health more than usual right now. Motivation to make improvements or to bring more meaning to your life strengthens, particularly around the 12th, 15-17, and 21st. There are romantic possibilities, particularly with someone of a different background, who is not your usual type, or who is offering up an entirely different perspective on life. For others, existing relationships get a boost with shared activities. Intelligence and open-mindedness attract more than usual. You are adventurous with your feelings and bolder with your affections. Sharing your ideas with others might even lead to significant opportunities, personally or professionally. You might enjoy activities that connect you with empowering ideas and experiences, as well as people who stimulate hope and optimism in you. Non-routine activities seem to be most appealing and beneficial now. Educational or travel plans may be part of the process of opening up to new ways of thinking, living, and loving. An unusually winning time for attraction, appeal, and personal magnetism is the 15-16. A revelation occurring now may be about letting something go and then putting your faith in the universe that it will find its way to where it belongs! Around the 21st, you’re in great shape for collaborations, involvement with a team, contributions to a cause or group effort, relationships with associates, and repurposing and rejuvenating a current project or relationship.
Mercury enters your career and reputation sector on the 5th, and the Sun follows suit on the 21-22, bringing your attention to rules and structures in your life, as well as career and responsibility. Neptune in your sign turns direct in the last week of the month, and a personal project or plan may gain traction. This change of direction can serve to reinvigorate you on both physical and spiritual levels, and you may be approaching the world in new ways. Some of you might experiment with new and improved ways of presenting yourself to others. You’re more outgoing and generous. A Jupiter-Neptune trine that will support you now and until August 2018 comes into influence now. Bosses love you, people appreciate your services, efforts, and work, and you more thoroughly enjoy what you’re doing.
