November 5 Birthday Horoscope
If Today is Your Birthday: November 5
The Year Ahead
Forecast for November 2008 to November 2009
When a Quarter Moon occurs in your Return chart, as it does this year, you are at some sort of a turning point in your life, in terms of personal growth. Events that occur this year act as catalysts that get you in touch with some important issues in your emotional life. Your emotions run high, and mood swings or identity crises are possible. There may be some kind of conflict in your life arising from a great urge to do something different. It promises to be a busy, dynamic, and significant period in your life.
Mercury in harmonious aspect to Pluto in your Solar Return chart suggests you stand to gain some perhaps profound new insights into your life this year. You can be especially persuasive and convincing in your communications, whether written or oral. Positive trends in trade, business, and communications are likely. Your perceptions are especially acute. You can easily slip into the role of counselor or advisor. You are inclined to do a lot of digging, researching, analyzing, investigating, and getting to the bottom of things. Increased psychological awareness of yourself and others can benefit you greatly, and employing strategy in your decision making is easier than usual this year. Relationships with younger people may be especially rewarding and meaningful.
Mars in pleasing aspect to Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus infuses the year with enterprising yet practical spirit. This is a strong influence for professional as well as personal opportunities. Your faith in your ability to produce and to win takes you places you perhaps never imagined. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you to plan effectively. The energies of these influences favor negotiations, deals, legal matters, reasonable speculation, and travel. They’re also strong for positive outcomes in competitive activities, including sports and business, for example. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life. Work takes on definite shape this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness.
Still, Mars in square aspect to Neptune cautions you to watch for a vulnerability to delusions or misunderstandings. Your energy levels are likely to be quite variable this year–waxing and waning in a moody fashion. Inspiration comes from unusual sources, but you may find that is too easy to waste your time and energy, perhaps due to occasional periods when you seem to lack drive and direction. You may also experience passive-aggressiveness in others, which impacts your life in frustrating ways, or you could find relationships with others confusing and hard to define. Although you may enjoy an increase in your intuitive capabilities, you can also be too open to influence so that fears or delusions impact your ability to see your life clearly. This could also be a year when you are more creative, yet not always in a reliable or organized manner.
With Jupiter in harmony to Saturn at the time of your birthday this year, a period of constructive accomplishment is ahead. In general, you are practical, realistic, and your judgment is especially sound–and you derive much satisfaction from your work. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. A nice balance between optimism and practicality is with you this year.
Venus is square to both Saturn and Uranus, and some tensions in your love life, and/or regarding your personal finances, are quite possible. Conflicting feelings when it comes to your love relationships figure strongly, as you want to be devoted and responsible to the people you love, but you also want to feel uninhibited, unrestrained, and free. Without realizing it, you may make loved ones feel that they are annoying you or bothering you. Try to be patient and calm while trying to resolve any relationship problems that you encounter. The responsibilities of partnership are magnified this year. You are likely to be more earnest on a romantic level. An existing relationship may become more serious, or you may form a new partnership with a serious or older person. You are likely to work hard this year, and this could interfere with pleasure time. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships.
With Venus also in pleasing aspect to Neptune, the “answer” to the aforementioned struggle lies in your ability to pay attention to your intuition. Purposefully trying to approach others with gentleness is the best way to handle your personal relationships.
Dealing with issues that pit freedom against responsibility in your relationships is likely to figure strongly this year. Although you could struggle with variable energy levels, overall you’re more enterprising. A balanced approach to life, in terms of realistic expectations, is the best approach for maximizing success. Avoid emotionally-driven decision making.
2008 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
2009 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
