Aries (21 March – 19 April)
The first two weeks of November are ideal to keep your head down, work hard and complete important goals or projects. Your ruler Mars remains strong in Capricorn until the 9th and both communication planet Mercury and the Sun are in Scorpio until the 12th and 21st respectively.
Capricorn rules your work and career and Scorpio rules joint finances so it’s these areas of life where you can make steady progress in the month ahead.
When it comes to work however you might already be panicking that the end of the year is almost upon you. In some cases, you realise that from now until the end of the year you are going to have to learn to delegate or spend more time in an advisory role rather than pursue your own work projects. So use this productive period to crack on with your own work goals and secure your finances as best you can.
When you have key planets in Scorpio, your financial success is linked to other people. You might not feel in control of money matters or find it difficult relying on others for your own financial security. Yet this is a positive period to create strong alliances and partnerships that benefit you financially.
The key date in this respect is the 14th when there’s a Full Moon in the sky cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. These two signs rule money in your chart and the Moon is exalted in Taurus. In fact, the Moon in Taurus is said to be a safe harbour so this is ideal for securing your finances and making sound money decisions.
It’s not the best time to spend wildly unless you’re making a low-risk investment which will give you financial security further down the line. Do whatever is necessary to ensure your money’s working for you. Keep things steady both financially and at work.
The last week of November adds a new dimension to your career and vocation, your future path. On the 24th, there’s a major planetary aspect between the big planet Jupiter and power planet Pluto. Jupiter is the planet of opportunity and growth and is currently in your opposite sign of Libra ruling relationships. Pluto rules transformation and is in Capricorn and your career sector.
Libra and Capricorn are cardinal signs, the leaders and motivators of the zodiac. When these two mighty planets, Jupiter and Pluto, clash in the heavens, this signals a shift in power. You might find, for example, that your own position is weakened as a third party is elevated to a higher position.
Certainly, the last week in the month is the time when you’ll notice who is in favour at work and who is calling the shots. The planet linked to women, Venus, is also in Capricorn from the 12th and caught up in the Jupiter-Pluto planetary pattern.
So play your cards carefully at the end of the month and do your best to get on the right side of the people in power, the people with influence. This is especially important because the Jupiter-Pluto aspect will repeat twice more in 2017. This situation is not going away and you’re wise to ensure you end up on the winning team.
It’s not all about the serious side of life this month however because the personal planets start to light up your fellow fire sign Sagittarius. Love planet Venus is in Sagittarius until the 12th and on the same date communication planet Mercury enters Sagittarius. In addition, the Sun begins its annual trip through Sagittarius on the 21st.
Sagittarius adds energy and enthusiasm to your month ahead. Fire signs, like your own sign of Aries, are fun loving and playful. Plus, Sagittarius rules the bigger picture. This is about any activity which gives your life meaning. This is the side of your nature which wants to explore, say Yes to life and take on new experiences.
You might feel more restless than usual this month, You might be keen to travel or study or learn something new. There will be times when this turns into a soul-searching experience, especially from the 18th to the 20th and close to the New Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th. You could be yearning for a spiritual connection or want or need to make sense of life.
This may be the time of year when you are already thinking about the year ahead, what you want more of, how you want to do things differently. The New Moon on the 29th is a brilliant date to book a holiday, sign up for a course and widen your experience of life in any way you choose.
Try and surrender to life at this time and trust that the experiences you need will come your way. When it comes to love, here too you might be searching for something different and crave adventure.
Whilst Venus is in Sagittarius until the 12th, this is perfect for a holiday romance or meeting someone new at a place of study. You could be drawn towards a person from a different culture or background to yourself. If you’re in a relationship or marriage, plan a holiday together or sign up for new adventure. You need a partner in your life who is as ready to have fun as you are.
The only question mark around love and relationships now is that you don’t mix business and pleasure, especially towards the end of November. This wouldn’t be a great idea because further down the line you might realise you can only have one or the other, love or career. Trying to juggle the two could backfire on you.
Taurus (20 April – 20 May)
Your ruling planet Venus is in Sagittarius and your joint finance sector as November begins. This is a peak period to trust your intuition when it comes to money matters. Venus teams up with Uranus in the most hidden sector of your child on the 5th and this is a positive date for you when love and money are linked.
More importantly however, do what feels right with regard to money matters. This is the ideal date to be spontaneous, to make a big hearted gesture, to invest or speculate. Venus remains in Sagittarius until the 12th but on the same date communication planet Mercury enters Sagittarius. The baton is passed from one to the other.
Yet there will be times this month when you feel less sure about finances, when you find you’re standing on unsteady ground. This is because of the planet Neptune which squares key planets in Sagittarius. In addition, Neptune changes direction in the zodiac on the 20th and the period from the 18th to the 20th is especially shaky.
Neptune can represent illusion, viewing reality through a veil. It’s linked to seduction and it’s not clear cut or honest, especially when it is linked to money matters. So be wary of what comes your way in this mid-month period. Saturn remains in your joint finance sector which means it’s important to use your common sense and your business head when making financial decisions.
The other important date to note with regard to money matters is the 29th when there’s a New Moon in Sagittarius, representing new beginnings. This is a positive date for finances, whether you’re agreeing a new financial deal or you’re ready to invest in a major purchase.
Neptune’s influence still lingers a little so be practical and keep your feet on the ground when it comes to money. It’s also important not to let fear or doubt take hold with regard to money matters. Instead use Neptune’s creative influence to visualise and come up with new ideas to help improve your finances.
The other important factor to note with Neptune is that this planet rules compassion and is often linked to charitable gestures, fundraising and events. You might be in a situation where you want to let go of some of your assets and play a philanthropic role in life. Trust is essential now in learning about the flow of giving and receiving.
One area of your life where you will want to invest your time, energy and money is related to the bigger picture, what next in your life. Action planet Mars remains in your fellow earth sign of Capricorn until the 9th, highlighting your travel and study sector. More importantly for you however, your ruling planet Venus also enters Capricorn on the 12th where it remains until the end of the month.
So this is a key month of the year to start thinking about your next steps and make some concrete plans for your year ahead. Allow yourself to dream, be inspired by other people in your life and sign up to your next big adventure. The 19th is a gorgeous date in this respect.
Especially towards the end of the month, you might be faced with a situation where you have to make a clear choice between two opposites. This is because of the major planetary aspect which takes place on the 24th between Jupiter in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn.
Jupiter in Libra represents balance and harmony, your everyday life, your regular routine. Pluto in Capricorn lights up your travel and study sector and your own planet Venus is pulled into the mix. So you could have a battle on your hands, a struggle, working out how to keep doing your job or commit to your daily habits versus taking a big leap in life, doing something adventurous and different.
Whatever takes place in the last week of November could test your faith, your belief that everything will turn out right in the end. You might have to decide what’s most important to you as you recognise that you can’t have everything. Weigh up your options carefully because this theme will continue into 2017 when Jupiter and Pluto meet twice more in the heavens.
What might help right now is the knowledge that action planet Mars enters Aquarius and your career sector on the 9th where it will remain until mid-December. So this is a positive period for your career and vocation, a time when you can make progress and get ahead.
Aquarius is the sign linked to technology and groups so bear this in mind as you move forward. This is potentially a forward thinking, progressive time of year when you can change what you’re doing in a way that benefits you and other people.
The other important area of your life that is highlighted this month is love and relationships. As November begins communication planet Mercury and the Sun are both in Scorpio and your opposite sign. Mercury remains here until the 12th and the Sun until the 21st.
This means that all forms of partnership are powerful right now, both personal and professional. Scorpio is an extreme sign, so this isn’t about casual relationships or acquaintances. Instead it’s about a soulmate connection, getting to know someone on a deep level.
You might feel that love is not for you or you might doubt that you’ll find the right kind of partner. Yet life could have other plans for you and when the Full Moon on the 14th cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac, your relationships are under the spotlight.
This is a gorgeous time for love when someone you’re close to is able to nurture you and care for you in the way you desire. The Moon in Taurus is a safe harbour and this month’s Full Moon offers you emotional security.
Gemini (21 May – 20 June)
Life continues as normal in some respects as November begins. Your ruling planet Mercury is in Scorpio, one of your work sectors until the 12th where it’s joined by the Sun in Scorpio until the 21st.
Scorpio rules not only your work but your daily routine, your health and your lifestyle. This is a time when you’ll benefit from a regular routine and daily habits that support your well-being. Scorpio is a focused sign so this might help you be less easily distracted and concentrate on what you want to get done. The Full Moon on the 14th cuts across the Taurus/Scorpios axis of the zodiac, a time when it’s wise to opt for a settled life and look after yourself.
In addition, action planet Mars begins the month in Capricorn and your joint finance sector. So money and work are key as the month begins and you’re sensible to do whatever’s necessary to get ahead and aim for security in your life. Hard work is likely to pay off and an organised approach to life helps you firm up your foundations.
Yet behind the scenes it’s a different story because there’s another influence which is completely the opposite. This involves the planet Neptune which changes direction this month on the 20th and its energy is especially strong as it stations in the zodiac.
Neptune is currently in Pisces and the sector of your chart which rules your career and vocation, your future and where you’re heading. Neptune can be a soul-searching influence when you’re unsure what you want or what fulfils you, although you sense that things need to shift and change in order for you to find your way.
Neptune is God of the sea so events mid-month especially from the 18th to the 20th could bring about a sea-change in your own life, a desire to do things differently, to chase a new dream. If you’re bored in your job or unhappy with your current situation, you’ll feel Neptune’s pull strongly as it washes away your sense of security or your strong foundations.
At its best you can use Neptune’s influence to inspire you as this planet rules art and poetry, music and creativity. It’s the planet linked to images, so use visualisation techniques to help you find what you want, to know what would inspire you. Tap into your creative or spiritual source this month to find inspiration.
Neptune also rules compassion so there’s a charitable, giving side to Neptune. For some, this is the month when you’re seeking out a higher purpose, you want to find your mission, to make a difference in the world.
Other people play a key part in your progress this month too because there’s strong emphasis on your opposite sign of Sagittarius. Love planet Venus is in Sagittarius until the 12th and the 5th is electric for new love when Venus and Uranus come together.
Your ruling planet Mercury enters Sagittarius on the 12th, the day that Venus leaves your relationship sector and the Sun too is here from the 21st onwards. So there’s a theme of co-operation in your month ahead, working alongside other people to further your own goals and support one another. The 29th is key in this respect when there’s a New Moon in Sagittarius, a positive symbol for new beginnings.
It’s a good month to sign and seal a contract, create joint ventures in your life, find a business partner. If you’re in a relationship or married, there’s an ease about love that might have been missing in your life of late.
Admittedly, the taskmaster of the heavens, Saturn remains in this same part of your chart so love is rarely a breeze when responsible Saturn takes up residence. Your ruler Mercury teams up with Saturn on the 23rd so this could be a tough date for love but a sound date to finalise a business partnership.
The other influence with regard to relationships involves the planet Jupiter, the biggest planet in the universe. Jupiter represents opportunity and growth, it’s your partner planet and is currently in Libra, the sign that rules romance and all the good things in life.
This is a fun placing for Jupiter and even if your love life has been quiet or challenging over the last couple of years, Jupiter brings something extra to the party. You want to keep love light or be free from restriction. You want to have fun but you don’t want to deal with anything difficult or confrontative.
This is fine on the whole except in the last week of November when Jupiter in Libra clashes with Pluto in Capricorn and love planet Venus is pulled into the mix. The key date is the 24th, the day of the major aspect but the following few days are also pivotal.
This is when you might have to deal with emotional baggage, either your own or someone else’s. Be wary of venturing into a new relationship or alliance with someone who’s not good with money or is tied to the past.
You might also have to make some tough decisions about what you can and can’t afford. The Jupiter-Pluto clash indicates that you can have one thing but not the other and it’s easy to slip into greed or desire with this combination, success at any cost.
If anything, wait until the New Moon on the 29th when you can see your way ahead more clearly. The days leading up to the New Moon could be especially murky.
Cancer (21 June – 22 July)
This month’s astrology is packed full of intensity for you and one way this can play out is through a relationship. In fact, this is one of the best months of the year when it comes to love as the planets line up in sectors of your chart highlighting romance and intimacy.
The Sun is in Scorpio and your romance sector until the 21st so this is a key month to tap into your passion. If you’re looking for love, the first two weeks of November are red-hot. You need a partner now who you can connect with on an emotional level and the 3rd and 7th are key dates to go in deep.
In addition, passion planet Mars is in Capricorn and your relationship sector until the 9th. Unlike last month, Mars makes no difficult planetary aspects so you’re in cruise control when it comes to love and partnership.
Even better, love planet Venus enters Capricorn and your relationship sector on the 12th where it remains throughout the rest of the month. If Mars rules war, Venus rules peace so this indicates it’s a good time to co-operate with other people, to work towards loving relationships, to find where you agree rather than disagree.
The mid-month Full Moon is also powerful because it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. The Moon in Taurus is a safe harbour, nurturing, caring yet strong. If you meet someone new on or around this date, love is likely to last. If you’re in a relationship or married, it’s a wonderful date to renew your commitment to each other, to take your partnership to the next level.
Yet not everyone you meet and not everyone in your life is good for you now and in fact, you might decide to break ties or move away from the past. The last week of November is most challenging in this respect when Jupiter in Libra clashes with Pluto in Capricorn on the 24th.
This is a major planetary aspect which pits Jupiter in your home and family sector against Pluto in your relationship sector. This can flag up an imbalance in power, where one person dominates or you have to make a choice between the two.
Love planet Venus is drawn into the mix so this clash reverberates until the 29th. Be wary of other people who try to dominate you or take control. This could be an ex or someone in a position of authority who wields their power. This might be the time when you decide to break free or move on in some way and it’s important to recognise where your priorities lie and who matters to you most.
As you’re a Sun Cancer, Jupiter in Libra lights up the most powerful sector of your chart as home and family, your past and where you come from mean a lot to you. Note too that this major theme will continue in some shape or form throughout 2017 because Jupiter and Pluto clash twice more. Saying goodbye is never easy but this is what you might be doing towards the end of the month.
Your work and everyday routine are also highlighted throughout November as the personal planets move through Sagittarius. Venus is here until the 12th when it hands over the baton to communication planet Mercury. The Sun completes the picture as it enters Sagittarius on the 21st.
So look to your health and fitness, your work and routine to keep you sane and bring you joy. The happier you are in your job or your body, the easier the rest of your life. Focus on what works well and do more of what you love.
You won’t find it easy now if you’re in a situation that’s insecure or unsettled. Neptune’s influence indicates that your working life might be undergoing a sea-change and if so, you need to launch your anchor to find solid ground.
Look for something new you can do, especially on the 5th and 26th when Uranus in Aries and your career sector teams up with planets in Sagittarius. This is about renewal, reinventing yourself and Uranus is linked to technology and new qualifications. Rather than rest on your laurels, keep one step ahead of the pack and don’t rely on your regular job to see you through.
In addition, action planet Mars enters Aquarius on the 9th and the part of your chart which rules joint finances. This is a go-getting Mars, strong and confident, so when it comes to money matters too, keep on top of your situation and use technology and modern ideas to revolutionise your finances.
The more energy you put into money and work and the more positive your attitude, the quicker you make progress. Think of the future, plan ahead, embrace modern trends.
The New Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th is a peak date to apply for a job, start a new work project or turn over a new leaf. New Moons represents new beginnings and for you this New Moon boosts your work sector and also your health and lifestyle. What you start at this New Moon can help you further your personal goals.
Note too that when planets are in Scorpio, this is not only about passion but creativity too. Scorpio rules all the things you give birth to, so it can be linked to children and pregnancy but also your personal skills and talents.
You might find a way to turn a hobby or past-time into a career or part-time job. When you do what you love and focus on your passion, miracles can happen.
Leo (23 July – 22 August)
Your ruler the Sun is in Scorpio until the 21st, the sign down at the base of your chart. Scorpio rules your home and family, your past and where you come from so consider how you can root yourself a little further into life, settle down, create strong foundations.
The other planet in Scorpio as November begins is Mercury, the communication planet. Mercury remains here until the 12th so start those all-important conversations, connect with your loved ones and do so on a deep level. Scorpio’s not about idle chit-chat but instead it represents a soul connection, getting to know someone on an intimate level.
This is also an important month to make any key decisions about your home and family and to engage with these areas of life directly and honestly. The best date to do this is the 14th when there’s a Full Moon in the sky that cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac.
The Moon in Taurus is a safe harbour, stable and nurturing. This month’s Full Moon is about finding your feet, taking time to stop and steady yourself. Consider the balance of your life, what works and where it’s out. If you’ve been too busy of late, actively slow down the pace. If you want to find a deeper purpose for your life, move off the couch and out into the real world.
In fact, this month is all about rebalancing your schedule, finding an easy flow in life and doing more of what you love. Action planet Mars is in Capricorn and your work sector as November begins but it’s less troublesome than October and Mars soon moves away from Capricorn, on the 9th.
This is another indication that you need to pull back and focus on other areas of life. The planet of relating, Venus, picks up Mars’ baton on the 12th when it moves into Capricorn until the end of the month. This means that help is at hand, find ways to delegate what you do, share responsibilities, focus on team work rather than being the boss or the one in control.
Draw people around you who you love and make your regular routine a joy not a burden. Invest in your work but in a way that inspires others. This doesn’t mean financially but instead channelling positive energy into your work place, your everyday environment. Value who you stand alongside, support one another.
This is especially important because of what happens towards the end of November. On the 24th, there’s a major planetary aspect between Jupiter in Libra and your communication sector and Pluto in Capricorn and your work and health sector.
This is about the things you can’t control in life and the period from the 24th to the 29th could be choppy. You might be up against peoples’ opinions that clash with your own, you might be drawn into a political battle or find that your own beliefs are challenged.
This combination between Jupiter and Pluto can be a test of faith and sometimes you have to reorient your own moral compass. Notice if you want to go to extremes to get your point across or if you’re willing to pursue success at any cost.
It’s important to recognise what this combination means in your own life because this theme will reverberate throughout 2017. These two giants of the universe, Jupiter and Pluto, clash twice more in the coming year. For you this is linked to the way you communicate, your network, your community.
Love and relationships, fun and play are also highlighted throughout November and as the personal planets move through your fellow fire sign of Sagittarius, this is another reminder to do whatever makes you happy.
Love planet Venus is in Sagittarius until the 12th lighting up your romance sector and passion planet Mars enters Aquarius and your relationship sector on the 9th. So the love and romance sectors of your chart are stacked throughout November, indicating an important month ahead for your 1-to-1’s.
If you’re looking for love, Saturday 5th is gorgeous as is Saturday 26th. Love can come your way out of the blue and you’re most likely to attract someone new when you enjoy yourself and have fun.
If you’re in a relationship or married, this is a positive time to spice up your love life and arrange some fun dates or social get-togethers together. The more you put into your love life, the more you receive in return.
Money or finances may prove unsettling in love and it’s wise to put off major money decisions this month where possible.
If you want to start a family or add a new addition to the family, this is a good month to do so and the New Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th is perfect for new beginnings.
Plus Sagittarius rules your creativity, your skills and talents, your hobbies and entertainment. The Sun, your ruler, enters this part of your chart on the 21st so sign up for some good times and focus on the playful side of life.
Make sure that you tap into your creative source and this is especially important if you haven’t recently engaged with the side of your nature that wants to be artistic, make music, perform.
It’s through doing more of what you love that you come alive fully so focus your energy and let this feel-good vibe run through you. Be inspired by others and use your own creativity to inspire others in return.
Virgo (23 August – 22 September)
As November begins your ruler Mercury is in Scorpio and the communication sector of your chart. It’s joined by the Sun which is also in Scorpio until the 21st. Scorpio is a deep sign so make the most of this planetary influence and initiate those all-important conversations.
Words have power when Mercury is in Scorpio whether you need to talk to someone in an authority role or you’re teaching new skills. This part of your chart rules education whether you’re a student or a teacher. Either way, this is a peak period to share what you know and learn more.
Use your network now to source knowledge, gain new ideas, brainstorm. If you’re looking for work or a job, ask about in your local community. Action planet Mars enters Aquarius and your work sector on the 9th, ideal to find a part-time job or extra work in the run up to Christmas.
The same goes if there’s something specific you want. You might not have to go far away from home to source your needs. Use local tradespeople and play a key part in your community close to where you live.
Siblings and neighbours are also included in Scorpio’s domain so get to know your neighbours better or reconnect with your brothers, sisters or cousins. This is not a time when you need to feel alone. Reach out to others and you’ll receive a huge amount in return.
The Full Moon on the 14th cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac, which means this is a key date to take an exam, join a local group or book a holiday. Travel and community, study and learning are highlighted and the Full Moon is a positive date to make big decisions.
Fun too is up for grabs this month and in fact, you’re wise to focus on play and ensure it’s equally as important to you as your work. Action planet Mars is in your fellow earth sign of Capricorn until the 9th and from the 12th, the planet of relating Venus moves into Capricorn.
Capricorn is the sign that rules all the good things in life and what you ‘give birth to’. This includes children and pregnancy, romance and love affairs, creative projects, entertainment and luck. So line up some fun events for the month ahead and leading up to Christmas. This ties in with the planets in Scorpio. The more you put into your life and the more actively you engage with others, the more you receive in return.
If you’re looking for love, this is a top month for dating and romance. Passion planet Mars is strong in Capricorn in the first week but once Venus enters Capricorn you enter a gentle period that suits your Virgo nature.
Saturday 19th is a top date for love and romance when Venus teams up with romantic Neptune. Tap into your creative side and join a group of friends who love crafts and making things.
If you’re in a relationship or married, revive your date nights if they’ve gone by the wayside. Focus on children too, whether you want to start a family or spend more time with your current family. If you’re a parent, children require your time and attention this month so work at all your relationships.
Home and family life is highlighted throughout November so this might be an especially busy month for you with regard to the domestic scene. Love planet Venus is in Sagittarius and your home and family sector until the 12th and your ruling planet Mercury enters Sagittarius on the same date. Plus the Sun also moves to the base of your chart on the 21st.
This indicates a busy month on the domestic front whether you’re moving home, renovating or people are coming and going more than usual. It’s a good month to catch up with family, enjoy one another’s company and make plans for the end of the year.
There will be some challenges however and let’s not forget that the taskmaster of the heavens, Saturn, is in this same sector of your chart. So themes of duty and responsibility resonate in your home and family sector, whether you’re caring for a parent or there are other reasons why you feel restricted.
There might be more problems at home than usual, e.g. things going wrong or breaking down. The 23rd could flag up a specific issue when your ruler Mercury sits next to Saturn. Endeavour to make progress slowly instead of rushing ahead and when Saturn’s in town, it’s important to do the right thing and not cut corners.
Plus, Neptune is strong this month in Pisces and your relationship sector but not always in an easy way. Neptune squares up to planets in Sagittarius and the period from the 18th to the 20th might prove unsettling.
You could need more reassurance at this time from a loved one or find that you and your family and your partner see things differently. Try not to let your imagination run away with you and if in doubt, check out the facts. If people let you down or promise the world but don’t deliver, be truthful and honest how this feels for you.
The best date for home and family affairs is the 29th when a New Moon in Sagittarius is the ideal date to turn over a new leaf and start over. If you’re playing a waiting game through November, it’s the end of the month when you can get ahead.
Finally be careful with money matters from the 24th to the 29th. The planet of opportunity and growth, Jupiter, is currently in Libra and your money sector but on the 24th Jupiter clashes with power planet Pluto.
You might identify a drain on your finances at this time or have to decide what you can and can’t afford. This could test your faith but as long as you avoid people who are unscrupulous or try to take control, hopefully you’ll bypass any major difficulties.
However, do notice what happens in the last week of November as Jupiter and Pluto clash twice more in 2017. It’s best to get on top of finance-related issues sooner rather than later.
Libra (23 September – 23 October)
The Sun and communication planet Mercury are in Scorpio and your personal money sector as November begins. The Sun remains here until the 21st and Mercury until the 12th. So this is the time to focus on money management and ensure that your finances are safe and secure.
Money progress is linked to home, property or family in the month ahead and the start of November is an excellent time to nail agreements, make lasting ties and use your money to your advantage. Be savvy about money and cash matters and know your stuff. You can negotiate hard if you’ve done your sums and you have persuasive reasons why other people should join you or invest in you.
The Full Moon is also important in this respect as it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac on the 14th. This lights up the financial sectors of your chart and the Moon is exalted in Taurus. This promises a positive time to make a big financial decision. The Moon in Taurus is a safe harbour so look to deals that last and do whatever’s necessary to secure your foundations.
Home and family matters remain prominent through November and this links back to your past and where you come from. Action planet Mars is in Capricorn and this same sector of your chart until the 9th offering you a chance to make progress and fast.
Yet the most important time for home and family affairs is after the 12th when your ruling planet Venus enters Capricorn. If Mars rules war, Venus rules peace so this is perfect for negotiations, using your charm and peace-loving nature to seek out cooperation and connection.
If anger and battles got you nowhere and an agreement has not been found, try the alternative, i.e. diplomacy and mediation.
Venus is also the planet of beauty so this is a lovely period for renovations in order to beautify your home and ensure your surroundings help to make you feel peaceful and balanced inside. It’s a positive period to catch up with family members, especially anyone you haven’t seen for some time. Plan who’s doing what over the Christmas break after the 12th but before the 24th.
The 24th flags up an important planetary aspect between Jupiter in your sign of Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter rules opportunity and growth and is the freedom planet. Pluto is darker and linked to power and transformation.
This combination could be challenging for you especially because your ruling planet Venus is in the mix from the 25th to the 29th. It’s hard to do what you want at this time without involving other people but inevitably this will lead to conflict.
Power games are likely with this planetary pattern, people vying for power. You might be caught up in a situation where family don’t approve of your partner or someone close to you falls out with someone you live with.
You are going to have to choose where your priorities lie and you will be forced to take sides. This won’t be easy but view this major aspect as a chance for a breakthrough in life, even if things have to break down first.
You might actively want to escape your past either literally or emotionally. Be wary if an ex reappears in your life during this period and don’t return to a relationship that didn’t work out first time around.
When it comes to love, the focus is on new relations or moving forward with your current partner. Certainly this is not a time to look back to the past unless you’re clear that you’ve learnt your lessons and you’re ready to do things differently.
Passion planet Mars enters Aquarius and your romance sector on the 9th where it remains until mid-December so this is a promising time for new love. If you want to be in a relationship, make the most of your social life, join a dating agency and ask your friends for introductions. It’s a peak period in the year to meet someone new.
There’s also strong focus on making new friends, whether for love or social reasons. As November begins, your ruler Venus is in Sagittarius until the 12th. Communication planet Mercury takes over the baton on the 12th and is joined by the Sun’s move into Sagittarius on the 21st.
This lights up your communication sector so it’s a brilliant time for networking, sharing ideas and making new connections. If you want to study or teach, explore your options. Passing on knowledge and learning more will bring you great fulfilment.
Sagittarius also rules your local community so you might not have to go far from home to meet someone new or find new friends. Team up with other people whether for fun or to support society in some way. Siblings and neighbours are part of the planetary picture so make time for them too, especially if one connection is currently shaky.
The 5th and 26th are brilliant dates for romancing and socialising so make the most of them. Lively Uranus is in top form on these dates and Uranus springs surprises in a good way. The more you put into your life, the more you get back from it so get ready for a busy but sociable month ahead.
There might be question marks around work or what you do for a living now but this isn’t the best month to sort things out. Instead, look to gain new qualifications, swap ideas and explore your options.
The New Moon on the 29th represents a key starting point, a chance to do things differently. A conversation you have on or around this date will be extremely helpful, especially if you’re seeking legal advice or you need an expert opinion.
Scorpio (24 October – 21 November)
It’s your birthday month and the Sun remains in Scorpio until the 21st. This is the time to focus on you, reassess your personal goals and aims and have fun. If you’re experiencing a surge of energy, make the most of it. When key planets are in your sign, it’s a positive period to boost your image and profile.
The other planet in Scorpio as November begins is Mercury, the planet of communication, and Mercury remains here until the 12th. If you’re typical of your sign, you love 1-to-1 connections and you often prefer a deep, intimate conversation to a party or social chit chat.
Whilst Mercury is in your sign, this is a key period to have those all-important conversations, the ones that really matter and especially the conversation you’ve been avoiding. Your communication sector is stacked throughout November with key planets in Capricorn. This backs up the fact that now’s the time to talk.
Action planet Mars, your ruler, is in Capricorn until the 9th and the planet of relating, Venus enters Capricorn on the 12th. Yet it’s the first week of November that’s most important for speaking up. This is partly due to Mars’ determination and courage but also your co-ruler Pluto is on the scene.
On the 3rd, Mercury and Pluto come together and on the 7th the Sun and Pluto join hands. This is about partnership, finding agreement, getting authority on your side, stepping into your power. Don’t hold back early in November and know that your words have power.
The Full Moon on the 14th is another decisive date as it cuts across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. This Full Moon is important for the big decisions, signing a contract, finalising key negotiations. Taurus is your opposite sign and the Moon in Taurus is settled and secure. Put yourself in safe hands mid-month and team up with other people who can help you make steady progress.
Once Venus enters Capricorn, this lights up your community sector. It’s a lighter influence than Mars in Capricorn and whereas early November lends itself to assertive behaviour, mid-month onwards favours charm and diplomacy.
Turn on your magnetic personality and you can quickly attract the right people to you. This is a positive month to make new friends or find people in your local community who have what you need.
You might be keen to study or learn something new or find a way to trade skills with people close by. Join in with your local community and team up with other people, whatever your chosen goal. Social, political, professional; this is not the month to go it alone but instead build strong relations and work together alongside others.
The trickiest week of the month is the last week because of a major planetary aspect which takes place on the 24th. This involves the big planet Jupiter in Libra and your co-ruler Pluto in Capricorn. These two planets clash and this can indicate an imbalance of power.
You might be up against something you can’t control from the 24th to the 29th and this can be difficult for you. You don’t fare well when you feel powerless but you might have to accept that someone is not going to agree with you or you can’t call the shots.
Take care that you don’t turn your critical nature in on yourself and if you’re prone to negative thoughts, use all your tricks to stay positive rather than give yourself a hard time. Your faith might be tested during this period or your beliefs challenged. If you lose faith in yourself, know that this is only a phase and you could even emerge from a period of soul-searching with some hidden gems of knowledge.
Money matters are under the spotlight this month too because of key planets moving through Sagittarius and your personal money sector. Venus is here until the 12th when Mercury picks up the baton on the same date and the Sun enters Sagittarius on the 21st.
Whilst Venus is in your money sector, you may receive a gift, a money blessing and this is a lovely time to treat yourself. Both Venus and Mercury team up with the planet of surprises Uranus on the 5th and 26th respectively.
These dates could deliver something special, good news, an unexpected present or a new work contract. This isn’t a big month for your work and career but that’s not to say there won’t be a few pleasant surprises along the way. A part-time job or an extra contract that runs up until Christmas could be on the cards.
Love is highlighted too in November and the 1st and 19th are especially romantic when dreamy Neptune teams up with the Sun and love planet Venus respectively. If you’re looking for love or want to go out on a date, both these dates are perfect.
The Full Moon too is important on the 14th especially if you’re in a relationship or married. Taurus is your opposite sign ruling your 1-to-1 relationships and events mid-month might prove pivotal for love.
With the Moon in Taurus, look for a relationship that’s settled and steady. Love can thrive for you only when loyalty and trust are integral parts of your relationship. Nurture the one you love and be open to their care and attention too.
Finally, your ruler Mars is also on the move this month as it enters Aquarius and your home and family sector on the 9th. This is the time to think ahead and make plans for the Christmas period. Decide what you want when it comes to home and family matters and put your mark on proceedings. You can make quick progress and snap decisions reap rewards.
Sagittarius (22 November – 21 December)
A positive attitude to life really helps as November begins. Graceful Venus lights up your sign of Sagittarius until the 12th and this is an opportunity to put yourself first, do more of what you love and treat yourself.
This is a good time to focus on your image and how the world sees you. With your ruling planet Jupiter currently in Libra and your friends and group sector, popularity means a lot to you. In fact, life will bring opportunities your way now which show you what a difference a group of people can make in your life.
Venus also represents enjoyment so whilst Venus is in your sign, line up some fun and social activities. The 5th looks gorgeous for a party or entertainment as does the 26th. Make the most of life now and know that the more you put in, the more you receive in return.
Love too is on the cards if you’re dating or want to meet someone new. The dates mentioned above are brilliant to fall in love or meet someone who brightens up your love. Whilst love planet Venus is in your sign, make the most of this gorgeous transit and spend some quality time with the one you love.
The focus is on you after the 12th too as on the day Venus leaves Sagittarius, communication planet Mercury moves in and is joined by the Sun on the 21st. This is the time to focus on your personal goals and aims and this is especially important if life has dealt you a difficult set of cards of late.
Return the focus back to you and look at what you want not only in the future but also on a day-to-day basis. Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, remains in your sign of Sagittarius and connects with Mercury on the 23rd. This could be a time when you’re making a big personal decision and it’s important to take life seriously.
Plus, Neptune continues to wash in and out at the base of your chart. Neptune stations direct in Pisces on the 20th so it’s very slow-moving this month and Pisces rules your home and family, your past and where you come from.
This can feel unsettling, rootless even and if you’re dealing with a changeable situation at home, it will be hard at times to feel anchored or purposeful. Try and learn to go with the flow to deal with any personal matters which not only require your time and attention but also demand a strong emotional input.
You can feel unsure of yourself when Neptune is prominent as it sometimes leads to confusion or a period of unclarity. Trust your natural intuition now to decide what you can and can’t do.
One of the best dates for you this month is the 29th when there’s a New Moon in Sagittarius, your own sign. New Moons are perfect for new beginnings and this New Moon is the equivalent of your personal New Year. Set your intentions not only for the month ahead but focus on 2017 and line up some activities which inspire you and give you joy.
Money and work also dominate this month but take care that you don’t overdo it. The Sun is in Scorpio and the most hidden sector of your chart until the 21st. This is a time when you often have to take the pace slow whether you’re dealing with personal issues or your energy levels are low.
You need time to yourself when planets are in Scorpio so ensure that life isn’t so busy that you lose touch with your self, your inner voice. Build some solitude into your daily routine and have a discipline that helps you stay calm and connected to the earth.
The Full Moon on the 14th is a powerful one as it cuts across the Scorpio/Taurus axis of the zodiac. Taurus is the sign which rules your work and routine, your health and your lifestyle and the Moon in Taurus is a safe harbour.
For some reason, you need to focus on your daily life now and ensure that you have habits in place which boost your well-being. A simple life might suit you best or at least not rushing ahead or taking too many diversions. Try and stay away from distraction and focus on one task at a time.
Action planet Mars is in Capricorn and your personal money sector until the 9th so it will help to focus on money matters and create some security in your own life. Mars is an ambitious planet but the atmosphere changes once Mars leaves Capricorn and is replaced by Venus in Capricorn on the 12th.
This is a slower, gentle energy when you want to trust in the flow of life, the natural law of giving and receiving. Sometimes extra money comes your way, a gift perhaps, when Venus is in your money sector and often you feel more generous and want to treat people close to you.
Yet don’t rush into things financially and avoid big risks or investments. This is especially true in the last week of November when your ruling planet Jupiter in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn. This combination does not favour big risks but instead you’re wise to look at where you’re losing money and to reassess your financial situation.
Sometimes this combination can act as a wake-up call, a sense that you’re on the wrong path and you need to course correct. Your faith might be tested or you have to make a tough choice linked to money. You can afford to help someone out financially, for example, but that means you have to forego another expense at the same time.
It is important to recognise what this planetary duel means for you because Jupiter and Pluto will clash twice more in 2017. Be wary of investing in a friend’s business or loaning money to a group you’re involved with. It’s here where you might not see the return on investment you hoped for.
