Self-improvement is a strong focus this month, dear Aries. Finances, taxes, and intimacy are main themes that you’ll be encountering in November, but this is just the beginning of a several year trend. Events and realizations this month can get the ball rolling for important changes. Love relationships can reach new depths of understanding. However, there are some hurdles to deal with, and the most important one has to do with your relationship with yourself. This is the time to work on ridding yourself of self-defeating or limiting attitudes. In fact, there is no better time to make lifestyle changes. You are easily engrossed by special subjects and projects this month, and eagerly throw yourself into learning and producing. New opportunities can arise in the last few days of the month, but be sure you don’t take on too much. The need for challenges, whether these are mental or physical, becomes palpable from the 16th forward. Watch for Conversations can be heated this month, particularly those revolving around money, but extra care and sensitivity are required. Money matters are more successful with a partner after the 21st, but you’ll need to take a hard look at spending as well as debts.
You’ll be dealing with relationship matters, and especially commitments, in November, dear Taurus, but this is a theme that is only just beginning for you and will in fact be in force for a couple of years. A sense of peace regarding work and health routines is with you this month, and your social life tends to take center stage. You could find that you’re making more concessions than usual and that your agenda takes a back seat to the plans and needs of important people in your life. A conflict between time spent with children or friends, and time spent with a partner, could arise. New beginnings in the relationship department are a theme around mid-month, or an event can occur that brings about realizations that something has to change. A difficult relationship might be put behind you, or you could begin to ask questions about a current or new partnership. A partner could be rethinking some elements of your relationship, or you could be doing same during Mercury’s retrograde from the 6-26. Travel may be on the agenda in November, as Mars entering your house of travel could stimulate a desire to explore beyond your normal routine. A loan or other form of support is on the agenda by the last week of the month. You need to push forward with important projects, and if it means getting a little help, the cosmos are shining on you.
Work and health matters take center stage this month, dear Gemini. In fact, these will be big themes for a couple of years moving forward, and events that occur in November tend to encourage first steps towards making big changes. Going over past errors, redoing projects, smoothing over differences on the job–all of these matters occupy your mind and your time this month. You’re also busy working with your physical body. Implementing and maintaining an exercise or nutrition program should be a priority. Although routine matters can get boring at times, reworking and reorganizing these things can be very satisfying. During Mercury’s retrograde from the 6-26, take the time to revamp projects that you’ve already begun. A relationship from the past could re-emerge. Take your time with important decision making, as you may not have all the tools at your disposal for clarity. Just when you think life is all about getting the job done, the last week of November brings a new focus on close partnerships. You can have an emotional epiphany or revelation around the Lunar Eclipse in your sign on the 28th.
Romance and creativity can blossom this month, dear Cancer, even though there are some rough patches to deal with. The focus is on having fun, enjoying hobbies and pleasurable pastimes, children, and love. Those things in your life that are preventing you from successfully doing any of things can become glaringly obvious, and the chance to put them behind you is especially strong, with mid-month a hotspot. You are in a rather dramatic phase right now, and your desire to express yourself is powerful. However, while Mercury retrogrades from the 6-26, and especially while this retrograde transits your solar fifth house from the 14-26, you may not be received as well as you’d like. By the last week of November, a new cycle begins in which work occupies much of your time. If youve been waiting for word on a new job, a promotion, or a clean slate of health, this could be the time when you receive the good news. There may be a need to let go of something or someone at this time, but it’s also a good period for gaining new information that helps you to move forward, including great advice, so stay connected and listen attentively.
You’re pouring more of your considerable energy (and perhaps money) into family, home, and other domestic matters this month, dear Leo. Attention to your home base is vital for the new cycle beginning near the end of November, when creativity, romance, children, and pleasure come into focus. The stronger you feel on the inside, the more fun you’ll have (without the guilt that sometimes comes with it) during this upcoming cycle. At first glance, the month may not seem to be as productive as most, but in fact you are building your nest, gathering your resources, and preparing for busier months ahead. For some of you, circumstances are such that you may be considering a big move or other change that affects your domestic life in powerful ways. This is not a time for pomp, show, and risk-taking, although you are more confident when it comes to pursuit of love until the 16th. Try not to feel pressured to make big decisions, as they may have to wait. Some backtracking is necessary in November, and although progress might seem slow, any delays now may one day be considered blessings in disguise. Your social life brings opportunities and some drama in the last week of the month.
A sense of peace about your personal finances boosts your overall mood, dear Virgo. Spending on frivolous items may be a lure, and you may need to tame this desire somewhat, but you might also decide that you deserve some pampering! November is a busy month for you, with plenty of phone calls, emails, appointments, and errands to keep you on your toes. However, it’s all too easy for you to be misunderstood during Mercury’s retrograde from the 6-26. Mechanical break-downs, misinformation, dealing with red tape, and other such annoyances, may be part of the picture now. Concentrate on getting your work done right the first time so you won’t have to redo later. As detail-oriented as you normally are, you’re so busy this month that it’s easy to get distracted and miss important information. The Solar Eclipse on the 13th brings the need to make changes in how you communicate. When Mars enters fellow earth sign, Capricorn, on the 16th, you’re likely to feel more able to take on challenges. The last week of November brings an increased need to be around family and familiar situations. Nevertheless, there could be professional opportunities that present themselves. Recognition for your work could be forthcoming now.
November is a strong month for taking care of business, practical matters, budget-making, asking for a raise, and discovering new ways to boost your income, dear Libra. A mini-crisis can set you into motion on these matters. Keeping your cool is necessary. An eclipse occurs mid-month that stimulates you to rearrange your budget, and while this is an important wake-up call, you have plenty of time and opportunity to do so diligently, so avoid snap decisions, as pressured as you may be feeling to make a move. Venus works its way through your sign until the 21st, and this boosts your natural magnetic appeal. You are in your element, and others tend to be taking note. Nevertheless, patience is required this month, as delays are likely. Slow and steady wins the race. Watch for some tension with family this month. Choose your words, and your battles, wisely. A sudden opportunity to travel, further your education, or spread the word about a project can arise in the last few days of November, and into December as well. The last week of November, generally speaking, is about connecting and communicating. Stay active and connected. You’re set to learn a great deal.
This can be a month of big internal changes, dear Scorpio. The cosmos demand that you mature in some manner – that you meet responsibilities, and get organized in certain areas of your life. The Solar Eclipse in your sign mid-month brings a chance for a new personal beginning, so that if you are looking to reinvent yourself, this is the time to share yourself in an all-new way. Your personal impact is strong. From the 14-26, you are likely to be in a frame of mind that involves review and caution. Avoid pushing matters. Most decisions don’t need to be made just yet. You’re likely to be self-involved this month, but it’s a necessary process. Career offers come now, and money owed to you could also arrive, particularly in the last week of the month. Until the 21st, love and relationships tend to be under the radar, and possibly to hold secrets. After the 21st, your personal magnetism and attractiveness increase impressively. You are warmer and more approachable. Your ability to open yourself up to others is directly proportional to the opportunities that open up to you. The Lunar Eclipse on November 28th gives you an extra push to rid yourself of bad habits.
While you can be quick to speak and react in the first week of the month, dear Sagittarius, you could be eating your words or at least rethinking things thereafter. In fact, you may not be ready to make clear decisions until Mercury re-enters your sign on December 11th. It may also feel as if others are slowing your progress, as they can seem distant or indecisive. Romantic and creative matters take center stage until the 16th, and you are likely to receive a lot of attention. However, love becomes more complicated and private from the 21st forward. The first few weeks of the month could involve some sacrifices and rethinking of your plans. However, it’s a time of gathering your resources for the weeks ahead. As much as possible, avoid pushing things. Mars leaves your sign on the 16th, and this helps you to pace yourself. The last week of the month is extremely busy. You’re quick to stand your ground if you feel taken for granted. A close relationship can begin, blossom, or demand attention with a Lunar Eclipse in your solar seventh house.
Your social life is likely to be animated this month, dear Capricorn, demanding your attention. At the same time, your work is blossoming and especially fruitful. The first three weeks of November are good for smoothing over differences in your career and also for dealing with reputation issues. Just keep in mind that Mercury’s retrograde from the 6-26 can mean more delays and hiccups to deal with than average. You’ll have plenty of time to rework your plans by the end of the month and into December, so do what you can to avoid stressing over details. Mid-month, a fresh start is possible when it comes to a friendship or group association. Team spirit is important right now. Over the coming year, the people and causes you align yourself with are likely to change. In the last week of the month, you enter a natural solar cycle in which you require some level of retreat, but a Lunar Eclipse occurring on the 28th can stimulate a lot of activity, especially with health and work matters, and Mars moving into your sign can give you the illusion that you need to do everything at once. Overall, it’s good energy, but you might feel a little swamped at this time. Try as much as possible to simplify by focusing on one opportunity at a time.
Career and reputation matters continue to take center stage this month, dear Aquarius. Over the coming year, professional and personal changes are very likely, and circumstances this month tend to get the ball rolling in that direction. You are aligning yourself with new goals or re-committing to those already in place. From the 14-26, you could be revisiting old problems in your career or dealing with problems that others have created, but you also have the chance to breathe new life into projects you may have shelved. You will need to tone down your impatience with slower co-workers and stalled projects. You may feel pressured to make a decision, but waiting it out is your best bet. While these things certainly deserve your attention, there is nice energy in play in November for matters of the heart. Venus in your solar ninth house until the 21st can stimulate your desire for adventure and a taste for the exotic. Long-distance romance can be a lure. The Lunar Eclipse on the 28th can stimulate much desire and passion. A creative project can come to a head, or a love affair can blossom.
Your sense of adventure runs high this month, dear Pisces, and you are itching for a change of pace. Opportunities for travel and education figure strongly. All things foreign or undiscovered not only appeal to you in November, but could bring new opportunities. You’re likely to make some important connections if you venture forth onto unfamiliar ground. Nevertheless, there can be some complications to your plans from the 6-26. Vigilantly check your calendar and schedules so that you don’t miss important interviews or deadlines. Watch that you don’t misrepresent yourself, particularly around the 22nd. Your ruler, Neptune, turns direct in your sign after months of retrograde (or apparent backward) motion. While the process is slow, you’re coming back into your own and feeling more confident. Attention to family and personal matters is required in the last week of November, even if career demands begin to run high. There can be a lot of activity centering around your home and family, which can be overwhelming at first, but can also be the start of something quite wonderful which ultimately energizes you.
