November 2018 Monthly Horoscopes – Summaries
November 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Aries: November encourages you to focus on a good variety of life departments, dear Aries, and includes some important shifts. On the one hand, Jupiter moves into your solar ninth house, stimulating a more adventurous, spirited approach to your world, and on the other, the North Node of the Moon moves into your home and family sector, encouraging you to enjoy familiar faces and places and pay special attention to your inner world. While you may be doing some juggling, there’s the potential for a nice rounded-out experience.
You have Mercury (all month), Jupiter (from the 8th), and the Sun (from the 22nd) in the sector of your chart that rules publishing, promotion, travel, adventure, belief systems, world cultures, higher education, and the law, such that any of these areas, if appropriate to your current conditions, can figure strongly. These matters may not be totally straightforward with retrograde Mercury in this zone from the 16th forward, but you are certainly offered some opportunities to advance your goals, pursue an interest, and learn new things this month. Take your time on these things — you’ll have plenty of time to get things going eventually!
Jupiter moving into your solar ninth house on the 8th is a happy move. For one, Jupiter is now in its own sign, Sagittarius, where it performs well, and for another, Sagittarius is a compatible Fire sign, and this means Jupiter is working in harmony with your sign. This helps you rise above small problems and discomforts as you tune into the bigger picture and gain perspective. You’re more optimistic and confident with this transit that will stick with you until December 2019. This influence can serve to pull you out of an introspective phase and into a more outgoing, active, spontaneous cycle. Over the coming year, there can be new opportunities to learn, publish, communicate, promote, and travel.
The North Node’s transit of your solar fourth house begins around the same time and will extend until May 2020. It comes at a time when there is much in the way of heavy energy in your sector of career, direction, life path, responsibility, and reputation, and can help you to consciously alleviate some of the pressure on these things by bringing back more balance to your life. This means you need to pour more energy into home life, family, downtime, comfort needs, security, and safety. This way, your life feels more complete and whole, and you can bring back a more rested, balanced self to your work, goals, and obligations. It can also be an especially rewarding period for building and developing your home and family life. You still need to work on your career and goals quite diligently, but it’s vital to carve out some time to attend to your emotional life as you do.
Venus has moved back into your relationship sector. While Venus will stay in this sector until early December, it remains retrograde only until the 16th. There is a focus on whether or not you’re receiving satisfaction from (and harmony with) a partner or a close relationship. Or, there can be a feeling of emotional distancing or limbo during this period of review, after which you can start to put all of the pieces together and feel more confident about making changes. In the second half of November, you’ll begin to see changes and forward-moving in your relationships or with your projects and money/resources. Some of the new discoveries you’ve made about your own relationship needs and values are likely to affect decisions made now.
Nevertheless, Mercury turns retrograde on the same day that Venus ends its retrograde cycle, so the pace should remain relatively slow. Reinforcing this is Mars’ move into your privacy sector on the 15th, where it will stay until the last day of the year. You’ll begin 2019 with Mars freshly in your sign, and it will truly feel like a new beginning for you. For now, however, it makes sense to strategize, rest, reflect, and tie up loose ends. This may not always be easy to do, especially with Uranus moving back into your sign for a few months to complete its transit, riling you up. Helping you decide which elements of your life need to end or go on a shelf is Neptune’s direct turn on the 24th, however. Pay special attention to activities that help you unwind and decompress now for best results, but do make some room for freeform activities that feed your spirit and satisfy your itch to learn and discover.
November 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Taurus: Relationships continue to be an important focus for you this month, dear Taurus, and with your ruler, Venus, ending its retrograde cycle on the 16th, it’s a time for rebuilding your connections and confidence.
While energies are not especially concentrated in November, there is some emphasis on your intimacy sector. Mercury (all month), Jupiter (from the 8th), and the Sun (from the 22nd) move through this zone of your solar chart, which rules regeneration, transformation, other people’s resources (that affect you), and debts, both spiritual or emotional and material ones. There can be a stronger need for deep, rich, meaningful experiences, more attention to the power dynamics and intimacy level of a relationship, and a focus on your own needs for change, evolution, and self-mastery in November.
Jupiter has spent over a year in your partnership sector, and on November 8th, heads into your solar eighth house, staying there until December 2019. A new trend emerges that may bring financial gain, deepened relationships or more joy in an intimate relationship, and a generally easier time attracting support–moral, economic, or otherwise. Your relationship with yourself or with a partner can grow as you understand your deeper needs more fully and embrace the more hidden elements of your nature. The New Moon in December can get the ball rolling, but you may feel some of these effects now, particularly around the 25-27 when the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter meet in this sector of your solar chart. The year ahead can be quite wonderful for your private life.
While the New Moon on the 7th is good for starting fresh regarding relationships, watch for impulsive moves at this time. Just before Jupiter leaves your partnership sector, it connects in an awkward aspect with Uranus, and the temptation can be to jump into or out of something hastily.
Venus heads back into your work and health sector and stays there all month, until December 2nd. However, Venus ends its retrograde on the 16th. This is a time for seeing areas of imbalance or dissatisfaction in your job or daily environment more acutely. The review you’re doing now is necessary and is likely to lead to improved conditions in the long run. Particularly in the second half of the month, you’ll have many opportunities to bring harmony to your everyday life. Confidence in yourself, your work, and your relationships builds as the month advances.
Uranus entered your sign in May and is retrograding back into the sign of Aries where it will finish up its transit of the sign over the course of the next few months. In March 2019, Uranus will return to your sign for a more consistent stay (lasting about seven years!), but for now, you have some unfinished business to manage.
Another significant shift happening in November is the North Node of the Moon’s move into your communications sector, where it will influence all the way until May 2020. During this interesting cycle, some of the greatest joys – and challenges – are likely to emerge through learning, communications, and connecting. It’s a time for developing your communication skills and for sensitizing yourself to others’ needs and communications. This process will help release you from some of the nervous tension and pressure you’ve been feeling about learning and sharing with Saturn and Pluto long-term guests in your solar ninth house and help you achieve more happiness and inner balance. It can be a time to enjoy more lighthearted chats, connections, studies, and personal interests.
From mid-month forward, Mars transits your friendship sector. Mars has been transiting your career and reputation sector for longer than usual, and its move into harmony with your sign on the 15th can come as a welcome relief from pressure. Your social life is likely to be more animated now and until the end of the calendar year — sometimes a little too much, perhaps, but certainly clearer and more straightforward.
November 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Gemini: There is a stronger than usual focus on your close relationships in November, dear Gemini, as well as a move towards more dynamism in your professional life.
Mercury (all month), Jupiter (from the 8th), and the Sun (from the 22nd) spend time in your partnership sector, and there can be a significant focus on relationships and especially one-on-one interactions. This can relate to romantic partners, counselors or advisers, business partnerships, or other such unions. Negotiations and agreements can figure strongly now. There can be some emotional distance experienced, and perhaps some focus on the past with Venus retrograde until the 16th and Mercury retrograde from the 16th! Old relationships may resurface.
Jupiter ends its year-long influence on your work and services sector on the 8th, at which time it moves into your partnership sector, where this “planet of plenty” will visit for thirteen months (until December 2019). This can serve to improve your close relationships or bring you into contact with helpful people. Because Venus and then Mercury are retrograde this month and because it’s only just beginning, you may not feel the good vibes full-on, but you’ll feel some of its energy starting now, particularly on the 25-27. Resolutions are likely to be found for long-standing problems in existing relationships, a new relationship, or relatively happy partings can happen in the coming year. Whichever the case, you’re in a better position when it comes to partnerships. Good publicity may come your way, as you are well-received and especially likable during this transit.
Venus backs up into your solar fifth house, remaining retrograde until the 16th, and moving on in early December. You can be especially focused on harmony in your romantic life or on getting in touch with your creative muse in November. While it may not be later this month or in December when you’re likely to feel that things are indeed moving forward, this is a good time for looking at your creative and romantic life, as well as your hobbies and pleasures, differently, leading to lovely insights. Questioning current attachments is likely now, and it can be a useful process, either serving to strengthen your commitments or alerting you to stale areas of your life.
The North Node of the Moon begins its eighteen-month transit of your solar second house on the 6th. Some of the greatest joys – and challenges – come through learning about your values and self-worth during this cycle that extends all the way to May 2020. Personal income, possessions, and values are in strong focus. You’re getting a helpful nudge to learn to depend on yourself and to establish your self-worth through your own efforts, and the rewards for doing so are great! This comes at a time when you’re encouraged — pressured, even — to deal with shared assets and intimate matters as Saturn and Pluto transit your solar eighth house, and there can be a bit of a dichotomy happening now, but also a wonderful chance to find a better balance.
The New Moon in your work and health sector on the 7th arrives just as Jupiter is leaving this area of your chart! It’s a thrust forward, but it’s important not to feel so pressured to take care of business that you make hasty decisions.
Mid-month is another time of multiple shifts, one of which is Mars moving to the top of your solar chart where it will stay until the end of the calendar year. This can serve to ignite your ambitions, and it might feel as if it was a long time coming after Mars’ sluggish behavior in the last six months. This is a time for pursuing your goals more directly and confidently, particularly related to your career or material affairs. It’s a dynamic time that can sometimes be challenging and tense or overstimulating, but also invigorating. You may resent interference at this time, making it best if you can work at your own pace.
The Full Moon on the 23rd is in your sign, bringing your heart’s desire to the surface, and the last week of the month is strong for bonding with someone special.
Cancer Monthly Horoscope Summary for November 2018: November holds good energy for a fresh start in a romantic relationship or creative project, dear Cancer, but also increasing focus on work, health, and habits as it progresses. Some significant shifts are occurring that introduce new themes into your life encouraging improved attitudes towards your work and routines, as well as about your independence and effectiveness!
While the energies of the month are not especially concentrated, there is a significant emphasis on your solar sixth house, which turns your attention to work, health, routines, services you render, daily affairs, diet, and habits more frequently than not. While it can be a time for managing and improving any of these things, it can also be a time when you discover areas of dissatisfaction which drive these improvements and refinements. You may be reworking projects or returning to old jobs that need attention in the second half of the month in particular. Fortunately, you’re very often enjoying yourself as you do, especially from the 8th forward, when Jupiter joins this area of your chart.
Jupiter spends thirteen months in a sign before moving to the next one, and this sign change happens on November 8th. Jupiter begins a year-long transit of your work, health, and services sector then. Work tends to be very available to you or is more rewarding and fulfilling during this cycle. As well, health is likely to improve in the year ahead–you might especially enjoy helping and supporting others. There can be a stronger interest in nutrition, cleaner living, and fitness. Playing a supportive role can be draining if taken to an extreme, but if you draw your boundaries and don’t overdo it, it can contribute to a stronger feeling of being needed. This influence will play out until December 2019, but you can begin to feel its vibes now, particularly around the 25-27. The last week of November can be work-intensive but is also likely to pull up the need to get to the healthiest rest-play balance.
Another significant shift this month that will stick around for some time is the North Node of the Moon, and its themes are entirely different than Jupiter’s! The North Node moves into your sign, encouraging you to explore and develop your independence. The coming eighteen months is a period of confidence-building and of expressing yourself in new, exciting, and positive ways. Some of the greatest joys and challenges come through learning about your independence, personal courage, and effectiveness. You are learning to overcome any existing fears of trusting your instincts or going it alone, and it’s a wonderfully empowering process! Its timing is especially interesting since it happens when there is heavy energy in your partnership sector with Saturn and Pluto encouraging some cleaning up and pruning on the relationship front. As such, you’ll be putting a lot of energy into your relationships as well as your personal needs and endeavors.
Venus has moved back into your solar fourth house and will transit here all month. It’s retrograde until the 16th, and you’re likely to focus on bringing harmony, balance, and peace to your home life and family dynamics. There can be resurfacing problems to deal with but you are looking at these matters in new ways, and as things move forward in the second half of the month, you’ll have a stronger idea of what’s most important to you–and what to do about it.
At the same time, Mars enters Pisces, where it will transit until the last day of 2018. Neptune, a long-term guest in the same sign, turns direct on the 24th, and you’re more adventurous, assertive, playful, and ready to take action. You begin to feel more energized, positive, and enthusiastic. Taking charge of your life comes more easily and naturally. You believe in your dreams. Mind you, Mercury turns retrograde mid-month, and there can be assorted small problems cropping up in your daily affairs and communications. Fortunately, there is a lot of cosmic support for a can-do attitude that helps you rise above it all.
November 2018 Leo Monthly Horoscope Summary: November brings a continued focus on home and family, dear Leo, but also increasing interest in sharing, expressing yourself, and enjoying entertainment and hobbies. In many ways, it’s a transitional month as new themes emerge and retrogrades of the inner planets continue. Some areas move forward, while others seem to backtrack, but overall, it’s a beautiful time for your mood and levels of engagement.
Your solar fifth house takes on more importance this month, and areas brought to life are recreation, hobbies, children, romance, dating, pleasure, creative endeavors, creative self-expression, leisure time, and fulfillment through play. These may not always be smooth areas with Mercury turning retrograde in this house on the 16th, but opportunities emerge to make refinements, improve, enjoy, discover, and grow.
Watch for impulsiveness on the 7-8, especially related to studies, publishing, family and home matters as Jupiter’s transit comes to an end. You’ve enjoyed some improvements or expansions to your home or family life with Jupiter transiting your solar fourth house since October 2017. Even so, you may have had to make a few sacrifices to make everyone happy, so that Jupiter’s transit of your sector of recreation, romance, and creative expression, beginning on November 8th and spanning until December 2019, can be a nice, refreshing change. This thirteen-month cycle can bring substantial opportunities to enjoy and express yourself to your door. You’re more outgoing, expressive, and at times, happy-go-lucky during this period.
However, another influence beginning in November encourages some introspection. Ideally, this combination helps round out your life rather than divides it. The North Node of the Moon leaves your sign and heads into your privacy sector for an eighteen-month visit. Some of the greatest joys (and challenges) come through learning about your inner world. Your path is to attempt to let go of unnecessary worry and guilt and to trust in a larger more spiritual plan. While this is a decidedly more inward-looking transit than Jupiter’s influence, both are about developing your faith, and it can be a rewarding process.
You begin November with Venus having just returned to your communications sector in retrograde motion. Venus will continue in this house all month but will finish its retrograde on the 16th. As such, you can be quite focused on bringing more harmony to your communications, daily life, and friendships this month. You might concern yourself with understanding matters from the past, mainly related to your relationships and projects, and you may be returning to old conversations, ideas, or studies. The second half of the month is about processing these new insights. The day that Venus ends its retrograde cycle, Mercury begins one, so while some areas are moving forward, others are requiring some review. Venus’ direct turn helps you come across as you intend, but Mercury’s retrograde turn can introduce some complications with this, so it’s up and down. Keep your cool and take your time with important decisions.
Another mid-month shift involves Mars moving into your solar eighth house. On-the-surface heat in relationships can lessen but some deeper issues may emerge for handling. This cycle, lasting until the last day of the year, turns the heat up on the more intricate elements of relating. Mars here from the 15th and Neptune’s direct turn on the 24th may help mobilize a financial matter. The last week of the month is particularly playful and even celebratory.
November 2018 Virgo Monthly Horoscope Summary: While November brings quite a few diverse themes to your life, dear Virgo, there is a fair amount of energy in your solar fourth house, presenting a theme related to home and family that’s on the increase. Your personal plans, home life, domestic affairs, family relationships, roots, heritage, parents and parenting, or psychological foundations can gain your attention more often than not in November. Mercury turns retrograde in this sector from the 16th forward, and you may need to fix some problems or deal with delays in any of these areas, but overall, it’s a time of great ideas and increased enjoyment of your domestic life.
Jupiter makes a big move as it changes signs this month – a once a year occurrence (or more accurately, thirteen months). The new cycle that begins on November 8th is likely to bring satisfying improvements to your home life. It also stimulates more interest in, and enjoyment of, your domestic life. Until December 2019, you’re in a good position for repairing and enhancing family relationships, moving or renovating, and increasing your feelings of safety and comfort. You’ll also be working on building your emotional base and a general feeling of being centered. The year ahead is fabulous for the beginnings of a new long-term project. The Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter align on the 25-27, and this configuration can give you a real sense of the vibe of this Jupiter transit that will be with you now and through much of 2019.
Venus just moved back into your resources sector, and will spend the month transiting this area of your chart. Until the 16th, Venus is retrograde here, and you’re likely to focus on balancing your checkbook, upkeeping your valuables, beautifying your home (or yourself!), and attending to your personal comfort. You may be reviewing these things and looking at them from a different perspective until the 16th, after which you’re in a better position to make changes and adjustments based on these observations. It’s a good time for finding lost objects, money, or areas of weakness in a budget. A delayed payment, gift, or bonus may come through later in the month. If you’ve been dissatisfied with your income or business matters, now is a time to explore your options.
Even so, the North Node of the Moon moves into your social sector on the 6th and will transit here until May 2020, pointing you in the direction of your association with groups, friends, and networking. This is a time for discovering a need to connect with others or to be part of a group or the community. Cultivating true friendships can be rewarding now. Your relationships with others, as well as your relationship with yourself, will benefit. Jupiter and the North Node are giving you very different messages — one is encouraging the homebody in you, and the other is stimulating your social needs — but you can manage both.
The second half of the month features Mercury’s retrograde as well as Mars moving into your partnership sector. Neptune, already in this area of your chart, turns direct, too, and this can push a relationship matter forward. Mars animates your relationships until the last day of the year. The Full Moon on the 23rd brings a need to balance your personal and professional lives, but in the remainder of the week, there’s a definite focus on your needs for familiarity and comfort that you’re in great shape for nurturing.
November 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Libra: November can be a busy although at times scattered month for you, dear Libra. A growing theme of communicating, learning, connecting, small trips or errands, and transportation emerges, and you’re also in great shape for dealing with your money or developing your talents.
Venus is retrograde until the 16th, on the day that Mercury turns retrograde, and you may be dealing with some stop-and-go energy! However, there can be some nice opportunities to enjoy new interests or take a fresh look at old problems with this retrograde action. This can be a time for editing a project, picking up a skill that you may have dropped in the past, reconnecting with old classmates or acquaintances, or talking about past relationships.
Jupiter changes signs on the 8th – something that happens only once every thirteen months – and this launches a new cycle for you that expands your contacts, communications, and interests until December 2019. The year ahead can be a time for taking up further studies, hobbies, or interests or for finding new and improved channels for communicating or commuting that open up new worlds to you. It can be an important year for laying down the groundwork for future projects, or for building up your skills. You’re excited to learn new things and share your ideas and interests with others. The 25-27 of November gives you the general vibe of this transit as the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter align in your communications sector. This can be the start of wonderful new ideas and projects that you’ll explore further as the year advances.
While Jupiter encourages you to diversify and explore your interests, the North Node moves into your serious solar tenth house, where it will influence until May 2020. Some of the greatest joys and challenges are likely to come through your career and public life during this period. It’s a time for meeting your responsibilities, stepping up to the plate, and putting yourself out there. These themes are different but not necessarily clashing. Ideally, they help to round out your life.
Retrograde Venus stays in your sign for a visit all month (until early December), and in the first half of November, is retrograde, as noted above. You have an opportunity to look at yourself, your personal goals, and your image in a different light, and to look back before you go forward. There can be quite a bit of preoccupation with your personal affairs now, and it’s a good time to review what exactly has been working for you and what may have been working against you. Your personality, image, attitude to anything new, initiating qualities, immediate responses to stress, self-identity, and communications are all themes that retrograde Venus touches now. Refining and possibly redefining some of these things may be in order.
There may be some relationship drama or a bit of upheaval as Uranus returns to your partnership sector for a little while longer. Watch for pressure to make a quick decision around the 7-8. It may not be as important as it seems in the heat of the moment. By mid-month, you’ll be focusing more and more on your work and health programs. You’ll find that plans seem to come together along these lines after some procrastination or delays.
November 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary: The month holds strong energy for your personal new year, dear Scorpio, even with some retrograde activity and Jupiter exiting your sign. Jupiter does move on, but is not leaving you behind by any means! With its new thirteen-month transit starting November 8th, you’re in an excellent position for boosting and enjoying your personal resources, talents, and money. It’s an abundant period and a good time for getting more comfortable.
The Sun travels in your sign until the 22nd, and you’re in the spotlight. This is a time for a bit more visibility and special attention to your personal plans, needs, hopes, and wishes. Venus turns direct on the 16th but remains in the sign just behind yours, suggesting some natural cautiousness and reticence in the love or affections department. Things will push forward once Venus re-enters your sign early in December. For now, you’re doing some processing and digesting of recent experiences, and you’re not quite ready to make big decisions.
Jupiter’s transit of your sign has brought a stronger flavor for adventure into your life in the past year. While Jupiter’s now moving on, the North Node of the Moon heads into your adventure sector this month, where it will stay for the next eighteen months (until May 2020), encouraging you to keep on reaching beyond your usual limits or routines. This is somewhat of a swap-out and works very well for you as you continue to challenge yourself to take on new activities and to feed your spirit.
The 6-8 is brilliant for powerful intuition and growth. Take note of your instincts now as this is a new beginning, despite continued retrograde activity. Even if you’re not yet pushing forward, you’re getting in touch with new goals and aspirations that are strongly motivating and pivotal, even.
Jupiter in Sagittarius from the 8th forward is powerful for your money and resources, and on a psychological level, your self-worth and value. Jupiter is very happy in its own sign, where it will stay for thirteen months, even if it’s not making fabulous connections to other planets in the year ahead. Look for opportunities to enhance your sense of comfort, well-being, and security, or to improve your finances. This transit is about making your own money and relying more reliably on your own income or using your personal resources to their utmost. This is a timely transit — Saturn has cleared the decks in this sector of your chart in recent years, and now Jupiter is coming along to help you start fresh, with new confidence.
Mid-month features some interesting changes. For one, Mars moves into harmony with your sign. From November 15th to the last day of the year, you’re not only in a fabulous position for knowing what (and who) you want, but it’s also keen for figuring out how to get these things! Self-assertion is easy and natural now. Your romantic or creative life can heat up, although there can be some impatience in these areas. You’re seeking playful ways of expressing yourself. Neptune turning direct in this same sector on the 24th is another boost to all things romantic and creative in your life. It’s a time for discovering or rediscovering your joy.
At about the same time, Venus turns direct after a retrograde period, and slowly but surely, life feels a little more straightforward in the areas of love, pleasure, and comfort.
Mind you, on the same day that Venus turns direct, Mercury turns retrograde. This is happening in your resources sector, out of the way, so it’s not as personal as it could be (not yet, that is – it will retrograde back into your sign briefly from December 1-6). Expect to look back before you look forward with your money and resources. Keep in mind, too, that you have thirteen months of Jupiter in this same sector, so there’s plenty of time not only to straighten things out but also add more to your plate.
The Full Moon on the 24th compels you to figure out matters related to dependencies and debts. This will help you get a better handle on where you stand.
While you’re certainly called to action and in the spotlight in November, it’s also important to take some time to reflect, withdraw, reconsider, and review things.
November 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Sagittarius: There are some exciting changes for you this month, dear Sagittarius, not the least of which is Jupiter, your ruler, entering your sign for a thirteen-month stay. While the Sun doesn’t move into Sagittarius until the 22nd and Mercury retrogrades in your sign in November, it remains a great transition month for you! The 6-8 is pivotal — a time to access your intuition about what to leave behind you before your fresh start.
Jupiter works very well in your sign, even if it’s not picking up much help from the outer planets while it transits Sagittarius in the year ahead. From November 8th to next December, Jupiter helps boost your sense of adventure. You could find that your natural Sagittarian traits are in full bloom in the year ahead! You feel at home in your own skin.
This transit comes at an interesting time. Saturn recently spent several years in your sign, clearing the decks, and now Jupiter here helps you rebuild and start fresh regarding your personal image, manner, attitude towards life and independence, confidence levels, your relationship with your body, and self-assertion. You’re learning — or relearning — to take charge and “own” these things. This is about reclaiming your natural traits and projecting them more powerfully. You might start a new long-term endeavor now — something all about you or resulting from your self-starting, enterprising nature. New physical activities or programs, businesses, or a fresh start regarding how you walk into a room or grab opportunities, may be part of the picture. Saturn helped you get organized but did little for your popularity. Jupiter is now enhancing your image, and you’ll find people more overtly appreciating you and your general vibe.
Mercury spends part of the month retrograde in your sign, and the Sun spends much of November in your privacy sector, keeping things low-profile. However, Jupiter’s transit spans the coming thirteen months, so there’s no need to rush into anything. In fact, this month, you’re in a fabulous position to build yourself up slowly but surely, even patiently.
Another significant change this month — a sign change that happens only once every eighteen months, and a house change, only once every eighteen years — involves the True Node entering your solar eighth house. The eighth house opposes the very busy, very heavy second house in your solar chart, and introduces an interesting and sometimes confusing dynamic, as it can seem to pull you in two different directions at times. However, it also points you in the direction of finding a better balance, which is always powerful.
With the North Node here until May 2020, you’ll be learning to not only subsist (Saturn and Pluto in your second house emphasize this) but thrive, change, transform, and pay attention to your spiritual, sexual, and emotional needs in the process. Sharing yourself with others in empowering ways can involve ridding yourself of unhealthy dependencies and/or connecting with others in beneficial, healthy ways. Others may help you see your own potential, or through helping others make the most of THEIR talents, you discover your own.
The bottom line with this is that you’re seeking the right balance between give-and-take in your life. The temptation has been to do everything yourself, which can become too much. This new transit helps you find yourself and your place with others, too.
Mars finally moves forward and down to the bottom of your solar chart on the 15th – something it’s been teasing for a while. Mind you, this is not necessarily the easiest of transits, but you do need to get a break from the mental and physical excitement/pressure it’s brought to your life much of 2018. What you do need to watch for with this influence is allowing the excess energy of Mars to fester and do its own thing. You’ll need to apply this transit constructively by putting energy into family activities or home improvement. Or, you may decide to once and for all handle a domestic or personal problem that’s been lingering for too long. This transit pairs up well with Neptune’s direct turn on the 24th – things are becoming clearer regarding the home, living conditions, and living arrangements, as well as relationships with family, roommates, and very close loved ones.
Venus turns direct after a retrograde cycle on the 16th, helping to clarify your social life, but on the same day, Mercury in your sign turns retrograde for a three-week run. Once again, you’re dealing with dichotomies, but it does keep the month interesting. In the second half of November, you’re heading into your personal power period with some questions and reservations, but you’ll get there! Allow your mind to catch up with your heart before pushing ahead, and you’ll be in good shape now.
November 2018 Monthly Horoscope for Capricorn: There are a couple of shifts this month that in many ways will define 2019 for you, dear Capricorn, as they’re longer-term energies, and they’re starting now! For one, Jupiter moves into its own sign, Sagittarius, and in your solar chart, this falls in your privacy sector, since Sagittarius is right behind Capricorn.
With Saturn in the forefront of your chart and Jupiter in the background, this can be a year in which working hard is in focus. Things that come your way tend to be through your own strong efforts, rarely strokes of luck. This is not to say that Jupiter in your solar twelfth house isn’t lucky. In fact, it is, but not in the more overt ways. It’s a sort of spiritual protector, and it’s a most excellent influence for enjoying your own company, gaining more peace and quiet, trusting your intuition, and supporting others or doing behind the scenes good deeds. This is a strong period for getting in touch with your more giving nature and with your subconscious.
The North Node of the Moon moving into your opposite sign is the other significant shift happening in November, and its influence extends until May 2020. With a strong and growing emphasis on your sign, this Node transit will help you balance things out through an important “other” — a partner on some level, or through a significant relationship, the eyes of another, or feedback. So, while you are actively and arduously developing your independence and personality this year and the next, you’re also encouraged to better yourself for the benefit of your relationships. It’s a challenge to balance these things, but the rewards are potentially enormous.
This month, Venus backs up into your career and reputation sector in retrograde motion and then turns direct on the 16th. This is much like having to go back over old ground to correct and refine matters before moving forward. In the process, you’re gaining valuable insight into your working relationships, reputation, and the satisfaction you’re feeling for your current work projects or long-term goals. The edits you do now can be very useful.
Around the same time (mid-month), Mars moves into your communications sector for a two-month stay, and later in November, Neptune turns direct in this area of your solar chart. This augurs especially well for your communications, helping to pick up the slack that you may experience with Mercury retrograde in the second half of the month. True, there can be small delays and problems to deal with, but you’re feeling good and confident about what you’re learning, sharing, and doing now. Enthusiasm is powerful for your ideas and connections.
You might also need to tie up some loose ends now and in the coming few months related to home and family life. This process will ultimately help stabilize these things. Later in November, you head into your yearly phase of rest, recuperation, and reflection. This will be useful as you move closer to your personal new year. Because the first few weeks of November may have been especially busy, this can come as a welcome relief! The last week of the month requires attention to work goals and expectations, too, however, and it’s best to strive for a balance.
Aquarius Monthly Horoscope Summary for November 2018: November brings diverse energy to your world, dear Aquarius, and includes two notable significant shifts of energy. One is Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, moving into a fabulous place in your solar chart, and it will stay there for thirteen months. It feels right at home in your solar eleventh house — a house that, incidentally, resonates well with your character. You’re now, and in the coming year, making more time for friends or groups and benefiting from these connections. You do need more space and downtime than usual these days, but a better, more satisfying social life can be excellent in small (or even medium!) doses from time to time. This transit helps inject more fun and interest into your life.
Another big shift is the North Node of the Moon moving into your solar sixth house, and this influence will stick around until May 2020. With this transit, you’re encouraged to get going with your work and health. The more you put into these things, the more they give back. It will be a bit of a juggle, but balancing your very real needs for self-service and service to others is essential and critical now. This also applies to work-rest balance, give and take, mental and physical health — it’s all about finding the right balance. You’ll feel good about organizing your routines and daily life, even if it doesn’t feel like it’s going to be easy.
You have a thrust forward in your work and public life with November’s New Moon on the 7th. Plus, Mars enters your solar second house on the 15th, and Neptune, already in this sector, turns direct this month — more signs that material affairs are strengthening and than you should direct your energies to these things. In fact, you can work hard at stabilizing your life now. There can be some review necessary with Venus retrograde until the 16th and Mercury retrograde from the 16th forward! However, it’s just fine, as you’re likely to find something valuable as you look back before pushing forward.
In the first half of November, though, Venus is retrograde and Mars is in your sign, and this combination can be a bit tricky. You may come across as more stern or insensitive than you are. It’s a good idea to soften your approach just a little, or you could unwittingly make more problems for yourself than are necessary. There may be a review of — or return to — an unfinished matter or previous condition related to travel, education, special interests, or publishing. As the month moves on, it’s a fine time to connect with people who expand your perspective. You’ll get some time to decide whether you are deriving satisfaction from your life, interactions, belief systems, or path.
Watch for making sudden decisions regarding your career around the 8th. While you want to start fresh, decisions should be made mindfully rather than as a result of feeling pressured or rushed.
In truth, November is not very focused on any one or few areas — it’s all over the place — suggesting you can benefit from diversifying a little now. The last week of the month brings a stronger social flavor, though, and you’re taking more and more interest in connecting with friends, networks, the community, or your higher goals, dreams, and plans.
Pisces November 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary: November brings diverse energies, dear Pisces. Even so, an interesting theme emerges for you. Powerful shifts and moves are in store this month, in fact. Mars moves into your sign on the 15th, the New Moon happens in harmony to your sign on the 7th, the North Node moves into harmony with your sign, Neptune turns direct, and Jupiter makes it to the top of your solar chart. All of these events seem to point to coming out of your shell and/or moving up! Even the out of synch energies are occupying visible parts of your chart. So, it’s an important time for you. It’s a visible, outgoing, spirited period.
Jupiter moves into your career and reputation zone on the 8th, launching a thirteen-month-long cycle in which your status improves, or an important project comes to completion. In the year ahead, your efforts are likely to be recognized and rewarded. It’s a time for putting yourself out there with more confidence with Jupiter at the top of your chart. The last week of November brings further emphasis on your responsibilities, work, and performance as the Sun joins Jupiter in the same sectors, and this is set to increase in December.
Venus spends the month in your intimacy sector, the first half of which in retrograde motion, so it’s covering old ground. You may be reviewing your financial arrangements or obligations or your relationship commitments. You may be looking at your intimate life or your dependencies from a different angle, and reassessing whether you’re satisfied with how you’ve been approaching these matters. This can give you valuable clues for making changes, which are ideally made in the second half of the month or beyond. Although there may have been some confusion or stagnation in your love life, the month gets easier for romantic expression and attention as it progresses. November can also be an important month for a loan or other support coming through.
You continue to have heavy energy in your social sector, and this will stay with you for some time. This month, the North Node moves into its opposing sector, encouraging you to find a balance. This new transit will stick around until May 2020 and complements you well but is not always straightforward since so much of your energy is going into stabilizing, pruning, or rebuilding your social life, networks, or connections to the community or groups. The North Node asks you to pay due attention to your personal life, too. You may need to let go of some attention to your obligations to the outside world so that you can develop your love relationships or to enjoy some personal time and creative outlets so that you can feel complete and whole. There are lovely benefits if you do so. In fact, the coming eighteen months are excellent for discovering, exploring, and building your talents and the creative side of your personality. Entertainment, leisure, hobbies, pastimes, and romance can be in stronger focus. Seek out a better balance between your personal happiness and the attention you give to a group, organization, network, or friends.
Now and in the eighteen months ahead, you’re encouraged to find your creative voice, to seek out activities that you truly enjoy, and to discover and share your unique talents. There are plenty of rewards for you here. At the same time, you’re also finding more joy in following your ambitions and performing or excelling. Working towards a well-defined goal can be motivating and satisfying. Your position with bosses, parents, teachers, or authorities can improve wonderfully in the year ahead. Even so, you’re also making your own opportunities along career lines with a confident attitude.
Another call to balance your life with attention to your family, home, or personal life comes with the Full Moon on the 23rd. Nevertheless, the final week of November is generally more public and goal-oriented than usual. Neptune’s direct turn on the 24th contributes to a greater sense of well-being, and Mars in your sign from the 15th forward encourages you to pursue your desires and assert yourself.
