Monthly Astrology Forecast for All Signs November 2019
- Get a fresh deal on love
- Golden opportunities result from compromise
- Be a Warrior for Right Action!
Love and compromise are your key words as we head into November, Aries. We begin the month with you looking at long overdue changes thanks to Mercury retro in your 8th. Now, I am not saying you will necessarily put these in motion right away, but you will be acknowledging on an inner level that changes need to be made in a key area. And coming up with an action plan to do just that. Whether this is at a future date or right now. Of course, the usual retro rules apply and in this house, you need to remember this relates to your money, borrowing, mortgages, loans etc. Refinancing is favoured. New loans or credit cards – not so.
Back to love as Venus enters your house of freedom on the 1st while Juno which rules commitment arrives in Venus’s ruling 7th of partnerships on the 4th. You also have your ruler Mars in here. Partnership matters may be up for renegotiation or renewal. Is this the change you know needs to take place? There may be a shift in a key relationship as you see it and perhaps yourself in a new light. The combination of Venus in your 9th and Chiron in your 1st opposing Juno on the 9th could add up to a breath of new love – or simply you deciding that you need to love your way. You may be acutely aware of your needs as the Sun in your 8th trines Neptune in your 12th on the 9th. Open up to those vulnerabilities now.
But please, remember your other theme this month which is going to be compromise. Often love means having to make a big one. Whatever you do at the time of the full Moon in your 2nd on the 12th – avoid insisting on having everything your own way or knee jerk reactions around insecurities and fears. This is your house of self-worth as well as money. Full Moons shine their light back into the house opposite to the one they appear in. This is your 8th of course. This rules in a committed relationship those joint assets –the home, mortgage, joint account and yes, even the kids to a certain extent. Being open and acknowledging those vulnerabilities means not being afraid of feeling vulnerable now. Or that you are ‘losing out’ by compromising.
That being said, your 8th is also your house of power, control (self-control) and control of you by others. We can say some kinds of calling the shots are part of you being in control of your life. For example, your employer has a certain amount of control over your time in exchange for paying you a salary. The bank the same kind of control via giving you that loan or mortgage. But this in turn says how powerful you are as you have been recognised as having the ability to deliver on your job and pay back the money. You trade your time for your salary. Your money that this brings you for home ownership. These are examples of powerful deals and compromises we make – and healthy ones.
We can compromise in a relationship for the relationship itself as opposed to feeling we are giving in. However, whatever you do this full Moon, take care you are not surrendering to powerplays involving a man and more than one woman or embroiled in gender politics or down-right sexism whether professionally or in your personal life. This is due to this full Moon falling conjunct Vesta. If you identify with the male gender and are in a situation where you are surrounded by predominately female family members, or work in an area where your co-workers are mostly women, then know this full Moon asks you to operate with honesty, equality and compassion. And throw in a sense of humour too for the best possible outcome.
That outcome? It’s very much in your hands this month, Aries. Retro Mercury in your 8th opens a door to the past with Neptune in your 12th two days after the full Moon. You can review it and then reset your future on a different path. This could well involve a key relationship as you see your way to make different choices. You may feel the need to go deep and spend some time alone reviewing this. Then – you emerge, a warrior for right action again – especially from the 19th when ruler Mars enters it ancient ruling 8th.
The ability to craft that new deal or compromise could be interwoven with a golden opportunity for you as November draws to a close. Instead of endings, we are looking at bold new beginnings. Many astrologers are only just beginning to recognise the importance of Ceres in our charts. It moves into your 10th of renown and reputation from the 16th. The 21st sees blocks to change begin to dissolve as Mercury shifts back into forward motion in your 8th. Just be aware however that it will remain in retroshadow for the following weeks – what I like to call ‘Retrograde Lite’. So, things may progress but then stall to finally shift forward again when it clears the shadow. However, the Sun’s arrival in your 9th from the 22nd points to expansion and on the 24th, Venus and Jupiter make a final once-in-a-12-year-meet-cute in here. The same day as Mars opposes Uranus in your money zone. Ready to do business based on a new perspective or desire, Aries? Yes, that’s what all the reviewing you’ve been doing at the middle of the month was preparing you for! Deals can be done, bargains struck and that golden compromise or new deal slid onto the table as Ceres trines Uranus the following day
The 26th brings a new Moon in your 9th marking the start of an important journey for you. It’s either real or metaphorical. Some of you may literally travel now while others could take a path which involves expanding their experience in a key area – possibly career, study or business. This day sees Venus quit your 9th for your 10th and trine Uranus in Venus’s ruling 2nd on the 28th. When Venus and Ceres meet on the 30th, you could end the month in total agreement over a relationship, career making move, business deal or reap the benefits of your partner’s success. Your own ability to focus on what is at the heart of the deal for you, determines your outcome. In other words – what you value above all else. It’s the new deal on love, Aries.
In a nutshell: There’s love at the heart of any deal – personal or professional for you this month, Aries. The bargain you strike or compromise you make results in a win/win. A new world awaits you.
- Head back to passion
- Feel the heat
- Try a little love alchemy
Are you ready to go back to love, Taurus? Or should I say what your idea of love should or used to be? How far have you had to move from that ideal? Have you compromised too much? You’ll be looking at all this and more – especially the effect giving away too much has on your wellbeing this month. And setting things to rights if need be. This is all part of a deep soul journey, this November. One designed to hand you the ability to move towards something so much more passionate and sustaining, Taurus.
Mercury retrograde in your partnership sector from the 1st has you looking deeply at the nature of your current love or even past and future loves. This is one of those retros where as well as the usual Retro Rules, this can redeliver a lost love opportunity. It’s also a fabulous time for a Passion Audit as your ruler Venus moves into your 8th on the same day. This is your house of what you share – joint accounts, marriage assets and yes, your bed as this is your house of sex too! Hence the renewed focus on passion and desire. The passion extends into other areas such as your career. The big question hanging over you this month is: Are you feeling it, Taurus? Time to find out. And if the answer is no, not really any more, this month hands you the tools to set things right.
With your ruler in the house of transformation, endings and rebirth and Mercury backwards in your partnership sector, you should not need me to labour the point that November for the main part is not the best time to go seeking a new love. Unless you are happy to settle for a fling, that is. It’s more about love resurrection and reconnecting to what used to make your heart beat faster if things have been flatlining lately.
In your desire to feel the heat, watch out for either taking on too much on the work front and burn-out as well as accidents and work-related errors. It’s not just the Merc retro which can make you prone to these but also Mars in Mercury’s ruling 6th in your chart. Juno which rules commitment and what you are ‘married’ to also entered your 6th on the 4th. Are you too focussed on your job and not giving love equal importance? You’ve an opportunity to look at this now. This month’s full Moon appears in your 1st and falls conjunct Vesta also in your 1st. This is one of the most important full Moons of the year for you when it comes to all close relationships. You are striving for equality. For a better deal. And yes, for that love and passion or its return as your birthright! Remember, full Moons reflect their light back into the house opposite to the one they appear in. In this case your partnership sector. This full Moon illuminates one key person or relationship situation. The one that is demanding your attention and that Passion Audit.
Two days after the full Moon, retro Mercury in your 7th trines Neptune in your 11th. You could come up with an inspired solution for rekindling that passion for an extra special date night. Or a way to have that conversation that needs to take place. A freer, bigger idea around what loving can be for you is just around the corner now. Ceres enters your 9th from the 16th while on the 19th, Mars arrives in your 7th. The 21st sees Mercury finally head direct in here. If you have been hesitating over taking action in the name of love, or having that conversation with someone that requires your confidence and courage, you are now being handed this. Long term and positive changes can be accomplished thanks to the Sun’s arrival in your 8th from the 22nd.
A new opportunity around sharing, co-ownership, your money, assets, joint finances or simply the shift that opens up fresh possibilities around those passionate ties, could present itself on the 24th. This day sees your ruler Venus entangle with Jupiter in your 8th. Bonuses, benefits, legacies and payouts are also possibilities for you. As could you benefitting from someone’s generosity. This is also a wonderful aspect under which to discuss changes to partnerships which truly reflect your desire for that fairer, more passionate outcome as the same day sees Mars oppose Uranus in your 1st. Don’t be afraid to suggest something new, revolutionary or previously untried. Your ability to create compromise could result in a winning love result as Ceres trines Uranus the following day. Above all – don’t suppress those feelings even if you are someone who usually keeps them hidden. Mars’s entry into our 7th is always a call to be a warrior for love. Sometimes this also means being a warrior for self-love as Mars rules boundaries. It’s now time to show and tell when it comes to your true feelings.
Venus is shortly on the move – into your 9th the same day as a new Moon strikes your 8th on the 26th, promising freedom in the name of love. Or simply the freedom to pursue what you love. This Moon reminds you that passion is an essential emotional ingredient. It’s also about tapping into the source of your emotional power and giving yourself permission to express your deepest feelings. Don’t withhold these – or yourself for that matter. This is not just the house of what you share materially. But it also has a strange alchemy to it that rules what you create from the deepest source within yourself that you can share with the world. So, why deprive the world of all that, Taurus?
Neptune direct in your 11th from the 28th asks that you look to the sub-text and what is meant rather than being directly said when it comes to friends however. In other words, the opposite tactic you need to take to that of your one-on-one relationships. Neptune rules nuance, non-verbal communication and yes, those psychic instincts. What is all this telling you? Pay attention now. If any part of your job involves predicting the ‘next big thing’ then congratulations. You could be ahead of the curve now. Do your due diligence however, but if this backs up that gut instinct, run with that idea!
Flex those superpowers as we head towards the end of the month and embrace new ways of relating now. The 28th sees Venus trine Uranus asking you to be a little bolder and a lot more daring. Where is your True North, Taurus? Your ruler is now in your house of exploration, learning and adventure. Is the adventure that calls you a journey, that big career opportunity or that new love? Time to enter a brave new world on some level which requires you to stretch those heart muscles and even dare to create a new deal with someone as Venus conjuncts Ceres on the 30th.
Dare to suggest something new, or accept something which allows you to step outside your normal sphere of experience. November involves going back to what love really means to you. And then reshaping this in a new way for your future.
In a nutshell: How far will you go for love this November, Taurus? Either for a new one or to reclaim what it means to you? Passion is your compass and your heart has the map. Start the journey!
- What will you do for love?
- Make that promise to passion
- Big achievements are built on small details
There’s a love promise to be made this month, Gemini. First however, your ruler Mercury is retrograde in its ruling 6th from the very start of November. You of all signs appreciates the significance of this. A double dose of Mercury-retroactive madness could be heading your way. You need to remain focussed on the details and be very grounded in the here and now. This is an excellent time to look at how to re-vamp that routine – anything from that work schedule (whether paid or unpaid) to that wellbeing regimen. The Sun is also in here until the 22nd, and will be joined by Mars intent on giving you that confidence and energy boost from the 19th.
When it comes to work and career, it is really important to know what you want to achieve now. As the Sun moves through your 6th and Mercury moves backwards, both trine Neptune in your house of reputation and status. It’s crucial that you have the facts to hand, know what outcome you want and also to come across as someone serious about achieving just that. Don’t whatever you do promise more than you can deliver or fudge the facts and figures. If you don’t know the answer, better to say so but say you will find out rather than lose credibility. And of course, allow for delays, snafus, cancellations or for that deal to go back and forth. Even after Mercury goes forward again from the 21st. Remember it will remain in retroshadow so try to avoid signing important papers if you can. You do have assistance with that deal at the end of the month thanks to a superb alignment of Venus and Ceres in your 8th. Endeavour to aim for that date to sign or enter into any important agreements if you possibly can.
That love promise? It could be a past, present or potential partner. Venus enters its ruling 7th on the 1st. And you have the Sun shining on partnership matters from the 22nd when it also arrives in here. Plus you have one of the rarest and best alignments blessing partnerships of all descriptions on the 24th when Venus and Jupiter meet in your 7th. Any new connection which begins now comes wrapped in potential or is set to expand your experience of what love can be. And as the infomercials tell us – wait – there’s more! Reconciliations and revivals are possible. Doors to opportunity swing wide. Others could benefit from the generosity of a partner, close friend, employer or business associate. When it comes to love the sky’s the limit.
Sit back and ask the universe to deliver that perfect soul mate for you as the new Moon appears in your 7th on the 26th. It’s no coincidence that this is the day Venus changes signs. Leaving its ruling 7th and entering your sector of sex and passion. It’s a new phase of relating. Between you and the person who appears opposite you. Sometimes this can mark a new beginning in an existing union. Other times, a new partnership dynamic. It could be a lover, close work connection, friendship or even an opponent or rival. Whatever it is, they represent a part of you that needs expression, acknowledgement, integration. Which is it? That passion needs an outlet now. Channel that love, baby!
In the run up to this, a little audaciousness goes a long way. How bold can you be? What do you dare to do for love? Or just in the name of passion, attraction and creative self-expression? If ever there was a soul call echoing out across the cosmos for you to be yourself to win hearts it occurs on the 9th when Chiron in your social sector opposes Juno in your 5th. Dare you make that first move? This is no time to hold back that flirt factor because you will never know what the results that Jupiter/Venus meeting could deliver later in the month unless you set your fate in motion!
Ceres, ruler of new deals crossed from your 7th and into your 8th, on the 16th activating as it does, that deepest part of your chart – your 12th. Along with Venus it will impact on Uranus, shaking up your belief system and what you think about the world. Call this a doorway of Jim Morrison proportions opening wide. Your 8th is your house of what you share, what is shared with you in return and Venus of course, rules your assets, money, investments and bank account. Expect therefore negotiations and a new deal to emerge based on shifting beliefs around what you consider your true priorities. Dates where deals can be done are the 25th, 28th and especially the 30th, when Venus and Ceres co-join. What you value above all else is so intimate and highly individual, the deal done could be around anything from time to your salary or a relationship. It revolves around what you and you alone, put a price on Gemini. That includes the promise you make to love. Priceless.
In a nutshell: Mercury your ruler may be backwards. But you’ve green lights all the way when it comes to love, Gemini! Make that promise to passion this November.
- Indulge in the pursuit of passion
- Time for a way of working that energises you mind, body and soul
- Get a Now Deal on love!
Get back to love. Or simply take that U-turn back to something you used to love to do, cancer. Maybe that hobby or pastime that’s been pushed aside by demands on your time? But has left a hole in your heart. That feeling that something essential is missing – joy, fun, playfulness? Now’s your chance to reclaim it now Mercury turns retrograde in your 5th from the start of the month until the 21st.
The usual Retro Rules apply during this cycle. And by now I should not need to spell them out to you. Also – don’t forget when Mercury heads direct once more it will remain in retroshadow for another three weeks allowing you additional reclamation time when it comes to something you love. Or for the usual madness to persist for a while longer. Mercury rules young people and this is your house of children. School and education issues and revising subjects could play a role here if you are a parent or act as a parent, guide or teacher to someone younger. This is also your house of romance. Needless to say, this is not a good time to go seeking a new lover with Mercury retrograde in here. Not unless you enjoy a rocky road to love that is. It can however mark the return of an old love. I am going to have a bit to say about second time around chances later so stay tuned.
Venus enters your 6th from the 1st and this is Mercury’s ruling house don’t forget. Can you reinject that day job or routine with some new love? Unless you are unemployed or the deadline works against you, you should know that Mercury retro is not a good time to look for that new job either! But it’s a very good time with Venus’s help to make beautiful enhancements to what you already do and even if you are not in paid employment, make your daily tasks work for you. This is your house of health and wellbeing. Venus in here can either lead you into overindulgence or else have you committing to that body beautiful. Or making it so again.
Other kinds of commitments feature as Juno planet of promises and marriage joins Mars in your 4th. Take action on career matters now as Juno opposes Chiron in your 10th on the 9th. Chiron was a teacher in ancient times. This could bring up those teaching/mentoring/guiding issues with children or someone younger than you I talked about before. Due to Chiron’s discovery coinciding with the emergence of punk rock, it has associations with both music and the frankly outrageous. Is it time to make that outrageous move when it comes to career or achievement now? To try that thing you think you cannot possibly accomplish? You are being set up for some success-making aspects later this month, so is this your time to be daring? Chiron is all about outrageous fortune. What could not possibly come to pass – but does.
Ensure your crystal ball is crystal clear when it comes to love or where you want to get to now (spot the punk era reference!). Fabulous alignments occur between the Sun and retro Mercury in your 5th to Neptune in your 9th on the 9th and 14th. Ensure you are not escaping into fantasy or running away to make the most of these. Again, this could see the return of an old love or simply something you created or loved to do. If it is the former – if you want a different outcome this time around you need to take that reality check as it’s not about ‘the way we were’ but ‘the way we are now’. Again, more to say on this shortly.
Full Moons are always an important time for you. During a full Moon we all feel that push/pull like the tide – between an emotional need within and something in the outside world which represents this. Or someone. This month’s full Moon in your future and friends focussed 11th just happens to fall conjunct Vesta in here. Are you in a social situation where you are vying for someone’s attention or having to compete? Are gender politics or sexism themes swirling around under the surface? Or is someone manipulating others to get the attention? Do you always end up doing what they want without your needs being taken into consideration? This is your house of clubs, groups, bands, organisations or teams. Vesta often points to one male and a group of women. This full Moon shines back into your 5th. This could highlight a man who sets things up so women compete for his attention. Or more positively, a male who coaches a female sports team. Or the female lead singer in an all-male band. This Moon simply asks: is everyone equal in the spotlight?
The Sun arrives in Mercury’s ruling 6th two days after Mercury itself achieves forward motion once more. You’ve a once-in-a-12 year opportunity around that job offer, project, course, expanding your routine and enhancing your overall wellbeing as Venus and Jupiter meet in here on the 24th. The new Moon on the 26th could bring in a new job, fresh routine or new dedication to fitness and feeling your best. If you have been out of work and wanting to return to the workforce, this could usher in the opportunity to do just that. This is also your house of pets. Could this be the start of a big love between you and a four-legged friend? Perhaps getting fitter goes hand-in-hand with adopting that dog.
Let’s talk love revival now and a possible new deal surrounding this. That U-turn back to love, whether it is reclaiming an old hobby, reconciling with a former lover or renegotiating an existing relationship, always requires compromise. And that clear crystal ball. Ceres rules the art of the deal, sensuality and power and enters your 7th from the 16th. Indulge in the pursuit of passion now! The 19th sees Mars switch houses, turning up the heat in your 5th and asking you what you can no longer live without? Sometimes it’s just knowing you can go after whatever it is you desire.
Your now deal on love is all about love for the future. Again, not about how it has been in the past. If an old lover has returned, you cannot afford to allow sentiment to cloud the issues that caused you to part in the first place. Have you changed? Have they? If the answer to both is ‘no’ then the deal you strike needs to be with yourself. And that’s simply that more of the same is a deal-breaker. Now love can take you into the future when it is grounded in reality. Venus will join Ceres in your 7th which it rules, at the end of the month. Above all, that now deal on love needs to avoid anything unclear or which you could file under ‘It’s complicated’. Especially as Neptune heads direct again in your 9th from the 28th. You need compromise yes, but not complications. And promises which will be kept not just now, but for the future, Cancer.
In a nutshell: A new deal could spring from an old love. This could be the return of a past flame – or simply you reviving something you used to love to do. It’s called Now Love, Cancer.
- Are you ready for adoration and recognition?
- Buy a ticket on the soul evolution train!
- Take a step towards setting success in motion
Are you aware of how you are evolving on a soul level, Leo? You are going to spend the first three weeks of November looking closely at how your deep inner changes have impacted on your ambitions. and what you want to achieve in the big, wide world. The start of the month could have you making adjustments between your home and emotional needs vs. what you want to achieve out there in the big wide world. You are the sign of royalty and have an innate sense of pride. Your reputation is important to you and you are always keenly aware of how you want to be seen. Let’s face it Leo – you want to be adored whether this is on a purely one to one personal level or professionally.
This is what pushes you out there to achieve. That emotional yearning for recognition. Not blind ambition. Mercury turns retro in your 4th of all things home, lifestyle and security centered from the 1st. Unless it cannot be helped, do not buy, sell, rent or lease property right now. Deals are likely to be reneged on or come un-stuck. What this period wants you to do is in fact delve into whether your current living arrangements offer you the security or sustainability you need. And also how those deep inner changes may have changed your priorities with regards to worldly success.
Until Mercury heads direct again on the 21st, this is a time to revise, renovate and plan for the future rather than take action. Any disconnect between those needs and your ambitions are also going to be laid bare as the Sun in your 4th and also Merc retro, trine Neptune in your house of change on the 9th and 14th respectively. This month’s full Moon appears in your status checking 10th on the 12th.
Remember, full Moons reflect their light into the house opposite to the one they appear in – in this case, the Moon’s ruling 4th in your chart. This may stir up those old work/life balance issues and also, gender roles at home or even at work due to this full Moon falling conjunct Vesta. Are you being expected to take on more of your fair share of domestic tasks simply because of your gender? Or is there an assumption happening in your workplace that certain roles are more suited to one specific sex than another? Some of you could find yourselves working in a company where there is one man at the head of a primarily female dominated workforce. An example in literature would be Mr. Bennet in his household dominated by his wife and five daughters dismissing them as ‘the silliest girls in England’. This Moon will show where they may be a gender imbalance to be addressed.
You may uncover unseen needs – but also how to meet them. This is the alchemy of change where you can see clearly what’s behind your desire to succeed. And also what form that success needs to take now. Bring career matters to a close if you can. And also be aware of the fact you are ‘on show’ when it comes to people in positions of influence and authority. Take a professional not an emotional approach now.
From professional accolades and adoration – to matters of the heart. Venus sashays into your 5th of utter fabulousness on the 1st asking you exactly how much charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent you possess, Leo? Incidentally, the person who coined that phrase – RuPaul, is actually a Scorpio but was born with an extra ability to create illusion and gorgeous glamour thanks to a beautiful conjunction of the Moon and Neptune in his 5th. He also has Uranus in Leo – designed to stand out in a unique way. So, time to work yours even as you work on those inner needs. Venus in here says: the show must go on!
So, reorganise those resources and get ready to wow. Juno enters Mercury’s ruling 3rd from the 4th. This is your house of words, contracts and communication. Juno is all about the commitment. Say what you mean and mean what you say. With Merc retro until the 21st, again, please try to avoid signing those important papers until after this date. Mars in here says talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words. This basically translates into you getting behind those ideas and following through on what you say. Just remember, others may not. Factor this in. Chiron in your 9th opposes Juno on the 9th making this a day to follow through and say it and do it anyway.
What are you really doing? Clearing the decks for romance, fun and passion! Get ready to rhumba, Leo. Your ruler the Sun’s arrival in its ruling 5th puts you centrestage and ready to party. It’s a cycle of attraction and attention you won’t experience the like of again for 12 years as Jupiter and Venus meet in here on the 22nd. Doors to opportunity, to love and to other blessings on that wishlist of yours, open wide, Leo. Say ‘Abracadabra!’ and step through. Jupiter’s open handed generosity combined with Venus’s desire to bring you love and pleasure could result in a lucky break or you simply attracting what you most desire like magic. Please do bear in mind however, that it’s no good sitting home, binge watching Drag Race and waiting for that knock on the door. Set the energy in motion by acting to make what you want reality so that the aspects can aid you.
Take that step and set the scene for your own success, Leo especially at the time of the new Moon in your 5th on the 26th. Success making aspects also light your way ahead with work matters thanks to you answering that growing need within you to make yourself secure and plan for the future. Mars changed signs on the 19th adding a dash of confidence to your life décor when it arrived in your 4th. Bear in mind this is still not the best time under which to set real estate decisions in motion. At least until after Mercury heads direct again. But Mars adds some panache to those plans and also sets you on course towards whatever it is you need to create that all-important sense of home and safety. Ceres has also made a key shift into your 6th on the 16th and pointing to a fresh deal in career matters on the 25th when it trines Uranus in your status sector.
That new job or career making move is given a boost by Venus from the 26th when it too enters your 6th. It will make the same angle to Uranus on the 28th – bear in mind when this happens, Uranus is in Venus’s ruling sign of Taurus and your 10th. Are you prepared to change direction, go with something new and previously untried to attain that goal, Leo? If so, the odds could be in your favour now. Above all, rock your message and your unique smarts. Ceres rules compromise and the art of the deal. Win/win situations where both parties get what they want. Venus of course rules your bank account as well as that special vault which is your bold, beating Leo heart. Open up to striking that bargain as Venus and Ceres meet on the 30th. The deal you strike now could simply be a reflection of that soul evolution journey, Leo. Let love take you on to the next stage.
In a nutshell: Being recognised, seen and adored is neither wishful thinking nor vanity, Leo. But a part of your continued soul journey. Opportunities present themselves for that. And so much more.
- Who do you think you are and how do you want to be seen?
- Make yourself a fresh promise
- Love might not look like anything you’ve met before!
Think back to your birthday cycle, Virgo. During that time we all experienced extreme ‘you’ weather like no other. Put simply, this was your biggest fresh start for a very long time. What did you set in motion back then? What changed? Hopefully you on some level. Your call back then was to adjust the ‘outer’ you so it accurately reflected some important inner changes you had been processing. Did you? Your image, appearance, brand, body, weight, face, job title, profile – where did you make the changes? What was the result? Is there any part of this that you feel you left undone or still want to change? November says now’s your chance.
First up – your ruler Mercury retrogrades in its ruling 3rd from the 1st. Again, while it is not in your 1st, the favours further adjustments around that image or even your ideas. I should not need to labour the point that this probably adds up to a triple dose of the usual retro mayhem. However, it also adds triple effectiveness when it comes to revising anything from that look to your CV or that all important website, manuscript or anything which carries your name or title to it. Remember, this is not launch time. But fine-tuning and revision.
The start of the month also sees Venus arrive in your house of family, home, roots, traditions and security. The 4th brings Juno into Venus’s ruling 2nd. It’s all about financial commitments between you and someone else now. Especially when Chiron in your 8th of shared assets and resources opposes Juno on the 9th. Ensure you understand exactly what the agreement entails but you and someone else – that partner or even that boss, could be about to enter into a deal. Just be aware as both the Sun in your 3rd on the 9th and then retro Mercury trine Neptune in your 7th on the 14th. Just be aware however that due to this, actually signing on the dotted line may be delayed or changes to the agreement may occur between now and the end of the month. You may not be in the clear so to speak, until your ruler exits retroshadow next month.
The full Moon of the 12th appears in your 9th – what I like to call the explorer’s Moon. Full Moons bring peak emotional experiences. And usually a push/pull occurring between your inner emotional desires and something in the outer world. Full Moons are like mirrors in that they reflect their light into the house opposite – again, this is your 3rd where your ruler is retrograde. So, there is a feeling around this to look again at something – freedom vs. security for example or the terms and conditions surrounding that aforementioned deal. It asks you just who is setting these and whether these are equitable for both parties. This is down to the Moon falling conjunct Vesta in here. You are being asked to apply wisdom and learning to any situation where you feel confined or have come to realise you are being forced to play by someone else’s rules.
Continue your process of idea refinement and make certain you follow through on what you say. Mars in your 3rd from the 19th also gives you the confidence to give voice to any concerns you may have around that equitable or fair arrangement that may still be lingering. Do you need to ask someone for something? A new or better deal or arrangement? If so, your time is now coming now Ceres is in your 5th from the 16th.
Home and anything to do with your security, property – renting, buying, leasing or simply expanding your living space is favoured as the Sun arrives in your 4th on the 22nd. The day after those retro restrictions begin to lift as Mercury shifts to forward motion on the 21st. You also have a new Moon appearing in here on the 26th pointing towards a fresh and enhanced lifestyle direction. Again, this is all pointing to ‘arrangements’ and deals around your living space and security. As your ideas around who you are and how you want to be seen shift, so does how you want to be seen to be living.
The meeting between Jupiter and Venus in this house in your chart will not occur again for another 12 years. This could see many of you prepare to move to a bigger or better home, extend your present one or even accept a job offer that allows you to plan to do this in the future. This is reflected in the freedom-inducing angle between Venus in your 5th and Uranus in your 9th. For some, this could bring a daring and exciting new lover who may be different in some way to anyone you have encountered previously. They may open your mind and your horizons simply by their presence. There’s a sexy dash of the rebel about them with a touch of the spiritual philosopher now Neptune heads direct in your 7th from the 28th. This could just add up to an irresistible combination, Virgo!
Now, let’s talk about that new you and the new bargain you can strike with someone. One that’s based on fairness, love and equality. Sound good? The final day of November sees Venus and Ceres meet in your 5th for a gorgeous round table discussion where love is the take-out and anything negotiated benefits both parties. Look at how the outcome reflects on how you see yourself. And therefore how the world, or one person who could be your whole world, sees you Virgo.
In a nutshell: It’s time to evolve both your soul – and the outer you this month. What you began around your birthday can be revised and enhanced. Get ready for a fabulous relaunch!
- What is the promise you need to make?
- Words and ideas can take you further than you dreamed possible
- Get fit for opportunity!
With Juno arriving in your sign this month there’s promises to keep and commitments to be made. These could even revolve around where you live, home lifestyle and that sense of ‘place’, Libra. In other words, what you are ‘wedded’ to. This can be a career or a country as well as a sense of belonging.
Ruler Venus is also on the move from its ruling 2nd in your chart and on into your 3rd. This occurs on the 1st – the day Mercury heads retrograde in your 2nd. Note that Mercury is retrograde in Venus’s ruling house while Venus is in Mercury’s. While the usual retro rules apply – and please keep these in mind at all times, Venus in Mercury’s ruling house smooths the way if misunderstandings, delays or even breakdowns occur. Note that lover’s tiffs may not last as a result. Kiss and make-up applies across business and also interactions now provided of course, you are seeking that point of cooperation as opposed to coercion when Mars in your 1st squares Pluto on the 5th.
Chiron in your partnership sector opposes Juno on the 9th – the day the Sun in your 2nd makes a fabulous alignment to Neptune. Previously impossible compromises or agreements can now be made if you act with higher purpose. You of all signs understand the need for fairness and balance in all your relationships and transactions – be they business or personal ones. You have an important full Moon on the 12th which is about to highlight any areas where your attention needs to focus on these issues. It appears in your house of shared assets, money and resources – which means it opposes your house of self-worth. It also falls conjunct Vesta in this house which may raise issues around gender roles in anywhere from your job to your home. This is all about equality from pay to who does the chores or takes care of the kids.
With Mercury retro and a full Moon in here please try to avoid entering into big financial agreements now if you possibly can as the terms and conditions may not be weighed in your favour. If you cannot avoid this, please read the fine print carefully and seek expert advice if necessary, as retro Mercury and Neptune align on the 14th.
Mid-month ushers in a roaring sense of increased confidence and self-worth as Mars leaves your 1st and enters your 2nd from the 19th. You could discover new ways to boost those finances which in turn results in your confidence soaring. Mars in here makes you unafraid to ask for what you want and to dare to try something. Ceres is also on the move from the 16th into your 4th of home and as November begins to segue into December, you are going to find the astro weather has you increasingly focussed on the big picture around your home, flat, living arrangements, Airbnb, flat mate, family or lifestyle. Expect decisions to be made around these as we head for 2020.
First however, Mercury heads direct from the 21st – please bear in mind it will still be in retroshadow until early December. The Sun heads off into Mercury’s ruling 3rd on the 22nd. How you get around, communicate, do business, words and ideas can take you further and higher than ever before now. There’s an opportunity sailing within reach like no other when it comes to the internet, publishing, study, travel or bringing that opportunity that seemed far away so close. Your words and ideas have wings and could travel or see you travelling as on the 24th ruler Venus and Jupiter meet in here for the final time for 12 years. Be ready as this is your launch date for that pitch, interview, launch, big meeting, journey or to start that conversation that could see you travelling towards something (or someone) new.
Watch what appears at the time of the new Moon in here on the 26th. This day also sees Venus move on into your 4th. It’s time to make a deal which is going to have a big impact on your lifestyle or long- term security. Again, anything to do with property or moving will be favoured as will be career issues as Venus trines Uranus in your 8th on the 28th and meets Ceres in here on the 30th. Chances are you’ve also been dealing with your daily work, health, wellbeing, diet, routine and fitness and how this all fits in with the big picture of how you look and feel in the long term. To get the most out of opportunity when it appears we need to be feeling our best. As Neptune moves forward again in your house of responsibility and routine from the 28th, ensure you apply all and any insights. That commitment begins with the one you make to yourself this November. Look, feel and be the best you can be, Libra.
In a nutshell: What’s the big commitment you need to make this month, Libra? Is it to ensuring you look and feel your best? If only to take advantage of the fabulous opportunities on offer this month!
- Who do you think you are?
- Be ready to accept a different kind of love
- Launch a brand new you – and a brand new destiny!
It’s all about your image, brand, appearance, title on that business card and how you come across to others as Mercury heads retrograde in your sign from the start of the month. Craft that personal message now. If you feel you need an update, make-over or image renewal – now is the time to do this. Mercury retro in our 1st hands us the ability to ‘see ourselves as others see us’. This is a rare gift. And being the sign of re-birth you have what it takes to make the most of it.
Mid-month and you will have an opportunity to look closely at your reflection thanks to a full Moon in your 7th. This will act as a mirror on the 12th that someone ‘opposite’ you holds up. This could be a partner, a close friend, a long-term business associate or even a rival or opponent. There’s also a hidden message with this full Moon. And that is whether or not you are seen as an equal to the person holding the mirror. This is due to the full Moon falling conjunct Vesta in here. Combined with the Mercury retro if there needs to be adjustments in how you are seen or come across, you have the ability to change perceptions for the better now. Adjust the image and how the world sees you will fall in line with this.
Venus enters its ruling 2nd in your chart also on the 1st. Again, this is subtly linked to how you perceive yourself as this is your house of self-worth as well as money and assets. It rules how you expect to be treated. Juno and ancient ruler Mars are in your 12th – Juno arriving in here on the 4th. Juno is all about commitment as it rules marriage and anything we say ‘I do’ to. The 5th sees Mars make a tight angle to contemporary ruler Pluto in Mercury’s ruling 3rd. While on the 9th, Juno opposes Chiron in Mercury’s other ruling house – your 6th. When it comes to earnings and other rewards as well as how others treat you, you daring to change the situation by asking for something more now. Step into a new power dynamic and discover how good it feels.
This could include making the first move when it comes to love or simply being open to receiving more. The Sun in your 1st trines Neptune in your romance zone on the 9th for a loved up and magical alignment. That feeling you’re a little bit special amps up that attraction factor. Don’t be shy now. There’s something fabulous on offer which could require you saying ‘I do’ to an opportunity. Mars’s arrival in your 1st from the 19th sets your self-confidence at a two-year high. Put those finishing touches to any image re-vamp and prepare for your relaunch on the 21st as Mercury heads direct once more. You do have time however for any minor and final adjustments to that personal message or brand image during the retroshadow.
When we look and feel different, the world reacts differently to us. You could be about to experience this first hand during the third week of the month. The Sun moves out of your 1st and on into your 2nd from the 22nd, shining down on opportunities to bring that re-polished sense of self-worth into alignment with what the world wants to offer you now. Be ready to say yes as Venus and Jupiter meet in here on the 24th – the same day as Mars opposes Uranus in your 7th.
This could see you open and willing to accept something radically different to anything you would have considered in the past. You now know how to recognise opportunity. And also that if you want a different result, you have to be willing to accept something (or someone) different. Opportunity does not always look like we think it will. And neither does love. This is all about the confidence to dare to experiment, try or simply take a chance on something better. Doors to prosperity and abundance could open wide now as Venus and Jupiter will not meet in here for another 12 years. The new Moon in your 2nd on the 26th could mark the start of a permanent cycle of increased self-esteem and knowing your true worth.
Ceres entry into your 3rd from the 16th could put a new deal on the table when it comes to work, writing, study, publishing, the internet and ideas. Venus also enters here on the 26th and trines Uranus on the 28th. A new, unusual and exciting working or love relationship could be on offer for some of you. There’s a new deal and a bargain to be struck as Venus and Ceres meet on the 30th. Some of you may dare to suggest a compromise or outcome within an existing relationship you would have shied away from in the past. Whether it’s business or strictly personal, it’s about crafting a win/win solution for both sides. Expect to attract attention this month as the world or simply one person who is your world, reacts to the new version of you that you have become.
In a nutshell: November hands you a rare gift. To see yourself as the world sees you. Change your perception and change your world. As the slogan says: Be all you can be, Scorpio!
- Ditch what no longer brings you joy
- Unwrap a golden opportunity
- Happy birthday, Sagittarius!
Happy birthday, Sagittarius! Look closely at what you want to take into your new cycle with you as November begins with you looking back. It’s soul house de-clutter time thanks to Mercury retrograde in your 12th from the start of the month. Of course, the usual Retroactive Rules apply which I should not need to repeat here. Without wanting to get all Marie Kondo on you, look closely at what brings you joy and what needs to be ditched. This can even extend to old thoughts and beliefs with your 12th involved.
Mercury retro in here can bring up the past in the form of old contacts, returning to places we have lived or visited in the past or that old lover. Just remember, the past can often be a trap. You need to know you don’t live there anymore. Fresh opportunities are beginning to appear so move towards the new. Anything that needs to go – be it that stuff in your closet or even a connection – you’ll find the courage to ditch what needs to be done from the 19th when Mars enters this house. If anything is holding you back on any level, you’ll be able to see this clearly. Especially during the third week of the month.
Venus will kick start your birthday cycle early as it arrives in your sign on the 1st. Time to feel the self-love and attend to any image updates. This is a cycle of renewal on so many levels now. Think of Botticelli’s Venus rising from the waves. It doesn’t matter what gender you identify with. This is all about beauty, pampering, make-overs and rebirth with Venus in your 1st. Do not be your old self. I’m not saying blow your budget in the quest for renewal. However, some of you may opt for cosmetic treatments while others are content with a different shade of lipstick or new haircut. Venus says time to indulge yourself and embody the vibe of this planet on some level.
Feeling good about ourselves always has a knock-on effect on our social lives. Juno enters your 11th on the 4th. This asteroid rules commitments and lasting promises. As well as friends, clubs, bands, groups, social activities and networks, this house also rules our goals and dreams. Some of you may renew that promise to that all-important goal. Others may join a new social circle or experience a new resonance with old friends. Not everything from your past is irrelevant now. Above all, connect and get out and about. Music venues or live bands may feature and could even lead to a heart-starting and daringly different romance for some as Juno opposes Chiron in your 5th on the 9th.
This month’s full Moon appears in Mercury’s ruling 6th in your chart. As you know, full Moons reflect their light back into the house opposite to the one they appear in. In this case, that active 12th where you are peering that what is relevant and what no longer holds meaning for you. This incudes what holds you back, disempowers or drains you. Your 6th is your house of wellbeing as well as responsibility. This full Moon is highly unusual as it falls conjunct Vesta in here. Vesta is linked to the Vestal Virgins of ancient Rome who had to keep the sacred flame alight (responsibility). If they allowed it to go out, they were beaten. They were under the control of the Pontifix Maximums. In other words, they had to abide by rules that were not their own. Hence, in modern astrology Vesta has come to be linked to sexism and gender equality. In all this self-examination, don’t be surprised if you suddenly see there may be relationships with either sex where you may not be treated equally or are expected to take on more than your fair share due simply to your own gender.
Need to renegotiate or change this? You have help here from the 16th when Ceres exits your sign and arrives in your 2nd. Mercury heads direct once more in your 12th from the 21st – the day before the Sun arrives in your sign. You have just a new more weeks left of ruler Jupiter’s once in a 12-year visit to your 1st. Again, this is all about your image, brand, appearance, message or even that title on your business card that says who you are. You are heading into a 12-month period of increased prosperity which begins on the 26th when Venus enters its ruling 2nd in your chart ahead of Jupiter.
For now however, Jupiter and Venus make one final meeting in your 1st on the 24th. This could represent an invitation or literal ‘golden opportunity’ for you to be seen in a brand-new light. Something is on offer which is a reflection of how the world now sees you. This is a truly special birthday gift for you so be ready to accept it. The new Moon in your 1st on the 26th marks the start of your new cycle no matter what date in Sag your birthday actually falls on.
This is your new Moon of the future. Where you enter fresh possibilities and can craft a different future. Again, this all goes back to how you feel about yourself. When we see ourselves in a new light the world and other people reflect this. Which is why we need to project a new image on some level. See what begins to emerge which resonates with your new view of yourself now.
Venus leaves you 1st and enters its ruling 2nd on the same day as this new Moon appears. As well as your money, this is of course, your house of self-worth and how you expect to be treated and rewarded. Venus will make a superb angle to Uranus in your work and wellness zone on the 28th. It will also meet Ceres in here on the 30th. This could result in a better paying job, pay rise, bonus or that upgraded image results in upgraded relationships all round.
This is the house of assets and this includes those relationships which are literally ‘assets’ to us. That working relationship and as Venus rules love, this includes romantic unions too. One bonus which comes from decluttering is we make room for something better to enter. The meeting between Venus and Ceres could spark the renegotiation of an existing connection which results in a win/win for both parties. Or the start of a new era of equal love and shared values. That’s what your birthday and your renewed commitment to yourself can deliver this November, Sag.
In a nutshell: Your birthday season begins with an invitation to step into a new cycle of opportunity, Sag. Above all, it’s time for a new outlook. And a new self-perception to go along with that!
- Past efforts yield present benefits
- Exude a little star quality
- Yes, the universe really does revolve around you right now
Expect a renewal of old friendships and even old goals as Mercury heads retrograde in your 11th from the 1st. Venus also enters your house of the past perhaps delivering an old lover or revival of something you used to love to immerse yourself in.
This is of course, your time of soul house clearing. Especially after the 22nd when the Sun arrives in here. While you may be in major pre-birthday form this month, you are entering a time where you are the Star of the Moment, Capricorn. Just don’t let on to those Sagittarius next door!
12th house activity always means we are diving deep into the hidden depths of our soul. It’s all about the secrets we keep, our relationship to the divine, spirit world, the universe or whatever you choose to describe it. You may have enhanced precognition during this cycle and know what is going to happen before it does. Working behind the scenes or on something you are not yet ready to reveal is favoured by both Mercury retro and this 12th house activity. There could be big benefits coming your way simply from keeping things to yourself for now. More on this in a moment.
Of course, the usual retro rules apply and I should not need to go into detail about these. You should know them off by heart. The 4th sees Juno enter your status sector. Juno rules commitments and giving your word. Are you ready to make a lasting promise to that path you are on? Or say ‘I do’ to a new one? You also have Mars in this house telling you it may be time to transform those personal ambitions as it makes a tight but confidence inspiring angle to Pluto in your 1st on the 5th. Who makes it happen? You do! Dare to ask for something bigger and better or commit to finding it as Juno and Chiron in your 4th oppose one another on the 9th.
This month’s full Moon is in your house of romance, children, creativity and attraction. It shines its light back into your social and goals sector making this a very good night for date night or to be out meeting people. It does however fall conjunct Vesta in here. Vesta rules gender politics and sexism. Have you been told you cannot attain something due to your gender? Or are you expected to take on more than your fair share of responsibility around childcare for example simply because of your sex? It’s either a magical night or you are alerted to inequality issues. If you have just started dating someone pay attention to their attitude around these issues. Ensure you are on the same and equal page before taking things further.
Ceres enters your sign from the 16th. Make no mistake – we now take this dwarf planet every bit as seriously as Pluto. In mythology she was after all, Pluto’s mother-in-law. Ceres entry in here starts the cycle of your sign being front-and-centre of all astro activity for the next few months. Ceres rules new deals which result in win/win outcomes, harvest, seasons and yes, personal empowerment. Reach for the latter now as between now and the end of the month there’s a better deal on the table and a fresh bargain to be struck.
The 19th sees Mars move on into your 11th. This gives you reborn confidence when it comes to your social life. However, the flip side of this is discovering some connections no longer hold any resonance for you. Mercury’s retro cycle in here would also have highlighted any disparity between you and others. Remember, nature abhors a vacuum and if goodbyes are necessary, prepare to move in fresh circles as Mercury heads direct from the 21st.
Soul searching work or simply you remaining focussed on completing that project you were not yet ready to share could pay off for you in ways you dared not imagine. The final days of November see the Sun arrive in your 12th from the 22nd. Venus and Jupiter also meet in here on the 24th. This mystical alignment is all about good karma or benefits you have accrued in the past.
People from your past or past lives may be part of this journey now. As could simply being in the right place at the right time. Understand there is no such thing as coincidence. Just destiny at work. Ceres in your 1st trines Uranus in your 5th on the 25th perhaps bringing you an unexpected or unlooked for romance or opportunity. Venus is your Star of the Moment as it enters your 1st the same day as the new Moon appears in your 12th. It too will trine Uranus on the 28th. Some of you may hear from someone you did not expect to again as this day also sees Neptune head direct in your 3rd.
You end the month on a starry moment thanks to the meeting between Venus and Ceres in your 1th. The deal you make now could simply be with yourself when it comes to your own self-image. Any changes you make to your appearance, brand, message, style or how you come across will have a knock-on effect when it comes to how you are perceived. Some people may see the title on their business card change. How you see yourself will be reflected by how others treat you. Get some star quality happening now that can take you all the way into 2020, Capricorn.
In a nutshell: All eyes are going to be on your sign in the next few months, Capricorn. November says are you ready to be the centre of attention? It’s all about star quality now.
- It’s about who you know – not what
- Chart a new course to the future
- Life needs living on your own terms – define them
Review that career path and your long-term goals and ambitions as Mercury turns retrograde in your 10th at the start of November. I should not need to add that unless you are thinking of going back to work for an old employer or reapplying to one you have approached in the past, that this is not the best time to apply for that new job. The exception to this being if you are unemployed however.
Revisit past achievements, revise that CV, review your path to date or re-approach those past clients or contacts. Later this month you will have confidence and ambition boosting Mars in here from the 19th and Mercury heads direct once more from the 21st. It will then be time to put your plans into action. Until then, review and wait.
Venus enters your 11th of all things close to your Aquarian soul also on the 1st. You of all signs should understand this transit is about feel good friendships rather than romantic love. It’s about helping hands towards your goals from the people you know and connect with. One connection could be pivotal this month when it comes to opportunities or creating a success story. More on this later.
Juno arrives in your 9th from the 4th. Juno rules marriage, commitments and lasting promises. This is your house of freedom, long distance travel and learning. Committing to a course of study or a learning journey is one possibility. The 9th sees Juno oppose Chiron in your 3rd. This could result in a classic ‘opposites attract’ encounter or you heading down a radically different path than you ever imagined. Opportunity could come knocking but may look very different to what you thought it would. It’s an invitation either way. Dare you accept it?
This month’s full Moon appears in the Moon’s ruling 4th. It also falls conjunct the asteroid Vesta in here. What messages you been handed down within your family around gender roles? Vesta rules sexism and equality. This is your house of family and roots. Very often we don’t question the roles within our family we may have been assigned simply based on the gender we identify with. This full Moon on the 12th is highly unusual in that it may throw the light on the kind of expectations we have been handed down by others. Or where we are simply living up to someone else’s ideas around how we should behave, what our responsibilities should be or what we can achieve.
You will become increasingly aware of what is fair and what isn’t. Whether this is at home or in your workplace. Ceres in your 12th from the 16th will also highlight issues around this. This is of course your house of hidden truths. Ceres rules the art of the deal and is about a resolution that benefits both parties equally. With Mars in your 10th from the 19th and Mercury direct in here from the 21st, you are in a unique position to reach for the personal empowerment to craft something better and more equal for yourself. Especially on the final days of the month.
The Sun now shines on all your connections from the 22nd when it arrives in your 11th. This is where your future is set in motion. That one contact, friend, connection or network I mentioned earlier has a major role to play now. Whatever you are seeking – it’s all about who, not what, you know now. Lucky breaks, open doors and assistance towards a major goal could be on offer as Venus and Jupiter meet in here on the 24th. This meeting will not occur for another 12 years. Someone could offer serious entrée or an introduction you need. Or a ‘lucky’ break comes via someone you know. This same day asks that you be ready to take advantage of this. To step forward as Mars in your 10th opposes ruler Uranus in your 4th on the 25th.
The 26th sees a new Moon light up your future path in your 11th. This new Moon is one of the most important of the year for you. It sets the ‘scene’ if you like. Not just your social scene but points you in the direction of one particular goal or dream. Because of this its important not to be in hermit mode now. Make that extra effort to be out and about and connect. If you are a boxset hermit now you are likely to stay that way for some time to come. And why deprive the world of that unique sparkle?
Venus in your 12th from the 26th, connects you to past hopes and dreams. The path not taken which can still be explored. As it trines Uranus it’s about living your life on your terms – not to anyone else’s ideas or expectations. If you need to break free of the role you have been assigned within your family or even at work, this marks your opportunity to do just that. You don’t have to break ties or break hearts to do this either. Venus and Ceres conjunct in here on the final day of the month point to solutions where balance can be restored and both sides win. Spiritual benefits include you suddenly seeing ways to accomplish this which simply did not occur to you before. You’re forging a new way ahead before 2020 begins. And staying true to who you are and your soul purpose as you do, Aquarius.
In a nutshell: Where is that path taking you, Aquarius? Is it true to who you are and your soul purpose? November sets you on course for an exciting new future. Revamp that destiny this month!
- Commit to something new
- Create your best, most unforgettable impression
- Make passion your next big adventure
With Mercury retrograde in your 9th I should not need to tell you that if you are planning on long haul travel, to allow extra time. And for delays, strikes, missed connections and cancellations. You need not just Plan ‘B’ when travelling but plans C thru Z. Just in case. This is a good transit under which to plan for that bucket list trip. But not to book it. Wait for early December instead.
Venus is also on the move into your 10th from the 1st. This is one of those transits where you need to look at your professional image and update it if necessary. With Mercury retro it is not the best time to be applying for that new job. Unless of course you are unemployed or re-approaching a past employer or one you have applied to previously. Venus in here does enhance your reputation and make those in positions of influence and authority, regard you favourably. This therefore is an excellent time to reapply for that promotion or re-approach that client or customer. The answer could be very different this time around.
What you share with others, joint accounts and assets, your mortgage, investments, loans, your salary, the marital home or assets or what is shared in turn with you, requires your answer one way or another this November. This is due to Juno’s entry into your 8th from the 4th. Mars is also in here until the 19th. Juno rules marriage (and this is the house of joint (marital) assets, commitments and saying ‘I do’ – to a person or even an entity in the form of say your employer or your bank. This is Mars’s ancient ruling house in your chart. Mars is all about action. Along with Juno it is saying: are you in or are you out? It’s about committing one way or another. Some of you may decide to marry or go live with someone. Or separate. Be aware if signing anything now that Mercury which rules contracts is retrograde and the terms may change.
Juno will oppose Chiron in your money zone on the 9th. Don’t be afraid in any kind of negotiation with someone to suggest a radical or even untried solution. But again, try to put off signing any important documents until at least after the 21st when Mercury heads direct again. And bear in mind it will remain in retroshadow until next month so things may go back and forth or be undecided until then. You do have an opportunity to re-work any kind of deal to your advantage however.
November’s full Moon appears in what is Mercury’s ruling 3rd in your chart. The 12th sees it conjunct Vesta in here. You need to look very carefully at any terms and conditions surrounding any major commitment on your part now. There’s a saying the Devil is in the details. Read the fine print and also don’t be afraid to ask others what their expectations are around any agreement you are about to enter into. And ask for further clarification if necessary. Vesta rules equality and gender issues. Also rules that are set by others. If there is something you need to know, expect this to be uncovered around mid-month immediately following this full Moon as retro Mercury trines ruler Neptune in your 1st. If you get that inner feeling you need to look closer at something – don’t ignore this now.
Ceres which rules amongst other things, deals, is on the move on the 16th into your 11th. We now know not to underestimate this dwarf planet which is as influential as Pluto in our charts. Ceres was after all, Pluto’s mother-in-law. Therefore it carries its own kind of power. And that power is the ability to craft a deal that works for both parties.
Mars in your 9th from the 19th re-ignites passion, your need for soul freedom and boosts your ability to act when it comes to the pursuit of these. Mercury heads direct in here from the 21st. However tempting it may be, with Mercury now direct and Mars in here, please don’t rush. Delays and mistakes can and will still happen if you do. There’s nothing Mars finds more frustrating that to have to go back over something. You can avoid this pitfall simply by slowing down and resisting the urge to surge forwards again once you feel blocks to progress lifting.
Fabulous aspects now highlight career opportunities once more that Venus began to highlight at the start of the month. The Sun shies on recognition and rewards as it enters this house on the 22nd. Ancient ruler Jupiter and Venus meet in here for the final time in 12 years on the 24th. This could mark a major career milestone for many of you. Travelling for work, dealing with people overseas, the mass media, the law or academia could bring opportunities for others. Time to make your mark – and make your move. The new Moon in your 10th on the 26th points to a new phase of success ahead of you.
If something needs renegotiating or a fresh solution you also have the ability to craft this in a way which doesn’t ruffle any feathers. Ceres in your future oriented 11th trines the ruler of this house, Uranus in your 3rd on the 25th. Venus will also arrive in here on the 26th and it too trines Uranus on the 28th – the same day as ruler Neptune heads direct in your 1st. It’s important you know where you are going and also – what outcome you want to achieve now. So long as you are 100% clear on this and aiming for the best result for all, the outcome could be to your benefit – and the other party’s.
The date to say ‘I do’ to the deal or outcome with another you’ve been working on all month is on the 30th when Venus and Ceres meet in the house of your future. Venus is all about balance and benefits while Ceres aims for the win/win outcome. Others could see an important friendship open doors to a new social scene or an introduction to someone who wants to share anything from their expertise, time, connections, influence or resources with you. You have something to offer them in return. This month’s theme is all about the sharing, Pisces.
In a nutshell: The more you have to share, the more that’s shared with you in return. There’s a commitment to be made and a deal to be done in November. Get ready for the benefits.
