There was an eclipse in your sign last month, the effects of which you may still be reeling from and come November 3 you need to be aware and have your wits about you that nothing that is unfinished from last month comes back to haunt you or raise its head again to throw you off your balance. Mercury is currently retrograde in an area of your chart that will be making it near impossible for you to see the full story or gain all the facts and until you can do so, which may be towards the end of this month, you would be wise to just keep a low profile and keep yourself out of trouble. There is a bright spark at the end of the tunnel though because around November 27 when Mercury is totally clears from its retrograde path the moon moves into your relationship area. Expect progress at this time.
Moon in Aries November 14, 15
Have you been feeling a bit stressed lately? Mercury is retrograde in your relationship area. A position in your chart that is going to be hit this month by all manner of occurrences. They happen on November 3 but will be felt throughout the month. As these planetary influences all fall in your love area then that is the part of your life that you need to watch carefully. If it’s not you who is upsetting the balance in relationships it could be your nearest and dearest (or not so near and dear) this month. Communication will be a factor and misunderstandings may erupt unexpectedly. Saturn which is directly affected by the eclipse on the 3rd may also be having the effect on you that you feel stifled or not free to be yourself within the relationship and the node (also close to Saturn and the eclipse) may push you into a situation that feels karmic or meant to be in origin. On the bright side you may meet a totally new person who knocks you off your feet.
Moon in Taurus November 16, 17
Work may cause you a few headaches this month especially around communication and problems arising from miscommunications. This is more prominent earlier in the month so if you have anything you are need to follow through on perhaps see if you can leave it till later in the month when Mercury turns direct and will be lending you a helping hand in any issues you are having around work going more smoothly. Venus is in your relationship area in the first week of November, enjoy this while you can, because you may find you are having a few difficulties in the form of arguments around the home with family. If you are in the mood for some home DIY this is the month to do it… the Martian energy will lend you are helping hand to get through anything you have been putting off.
Moon in Gemini November 18, 19, 20
Jupiter turns retrograde in your sign on the 7th possibly taking with it some of the exuberance that has been part of your life for the past few months. Later in the month Jupiter’s position will be in opposition to Venus which is sitting nicely over in your area of love and relationships. This combination sees you with some pretty good luck coming your way and also the patience to put together a plan of action to get exactly what you want. Sometimes its good not to look too keen on a person or always being the one fixing things within a relationship. With Jupiter turning retrograde you will feel more like your Cancerian self and allow the situation to take its course whilst you watch and wait to see the final outcome…. And remember Jupiter is luck… whether it is direct or retrograde.
Moon in Cancer November 21, 22
Be extra careful around the home and family this month. The eclipse on the 3rd accompanied by Mercury (retrograde), Saturn and the node’s position could mean there are some changes coming for you and they are not the type of changes that you can do much about. Mars in your area of security will also have you thinking and working long and hard to get ahead. If this has been a problem for you and your family in the past, with you not spending much time at home because of work commitments, then you need to come up with a plan to make a work:family balance because things could go pear shaped for you very quickly if you don’t look at this imbalance. Use the moon in your relationship area on the 10th and 11th to show your partner how much you appreciate them.
Moon in Leo November 23, 24, 25
Mars is in your sign this month pushing you to get everything done “yesterday” and not looking at where you are going or where this behavior may be leading you “tomorrow”. Not only do you expect to be able to plow through an unbelievable amount of work single-handedly but you expect those around you to do the same. Keep in mind that while you are able to keep up this pace others may not have the same stamina so don’t expect miracles to happen. The eclipse on the 3rd falls close to Mercury, Saturn and the node… rather than this holding you back it only enforces you to look at the little details more thoroughly and forge on with renewed vigor. If you, for one moment, think you have got something “wrong” or that you shouldn’t take a particular path then don’t do it. Eclipses can come back to haunt you for all the wrong reasons and the actions you take at that time are no exception.
Moon in Virgo November 26, 27
Count your dollars and count your cents because on the 3rd an eclipse, Mercury, Saturn and the node are all in your area of security and you need to know exactly where things are standing for your monetary wise so you don’t get any nasty surprises. With Mars also in a position where something could go wrong that is out of your control and also out of your vision (or sight) you need to be extra vigilant this month that you are on top of all paperwork. Check that you’ve dotted all the “I’s” and crossed all the “T’s” and not left anything to chance. This can also be said for your love life because at the end of last month you were visited by another eclipse in your relationship area and the effects of this will last for the next few weeks.
Moon in Libra 1, 2, 28, 29, 30
An eclipse in your sign on the 3rd brings with it not only the usual upheaval of an eclipse but as it falls in close proximity to the Sun, Mercury (which is retrograde), Saturn and the node it also means that you should not be pushing anything in November. Take a back seat with issues in your life and see how they play out. Do not think you can make something happen from the sheer force of your will power because it may all come back at you in a most unexpected way. The position of the node close to this eclipse, Mercury and Saturn suggests there is a situation around you that may seem quite fated in its origins. Saturn will give you a steady base from which to plan your next move and hopefully will also instill in you the need to be cautious. Observe what is around for you this month and you might try keeping a journal writing down how you feel.
Moon in Scorpio November 3, 4
Relationships are prominent for you this month with Venus in your sign till the 6th and while she is in your sign an eclipse will shake up your area of hopes, dreams and visions where you may not know what is true and what is false. For this reason you may wish to keep your feet on the ground and not rush in with your usual enthusiasm that has been known to get you in to trouble in the past. Work should be a good outlet for you to take your mind of things as Mars is in a position to give you a lot of energy to accomplish many things and Jupiter being retrograde in an area where you may finally get to the bottom of something that has been holding you back or troubling you for a while.
Moon in Sagittarius November 5, 6
Venus enters your sign on the 6th bringing with it a most interesting time for your love life. Let me give you some background to this. Currently Pluto, ruler of Scorpio is in your sign and Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, is in Scorpio. This is called mutual reception and usually brings out the best in the 2 planets involved and has them working smoothly together. On November 3 there is an eclipse in Scorpio falling very close to Saturn’s position. This also falls just before Venus moves into your sign for an extended stay. An extended stay that brings many benefits with it because Venus shall turn retrograde in your sign next month and this is a time that heralds loves from the past returning into your life. Keep your eyes open in November for any evidence that a lost love is making a reappearance.
Moon in Capricorn November 7, 8
Work is important to you this month and there may be a few surprises where your career is concerned especially early in the month. Don’t go pushing too hard with work though especially with any politics that may be playing out as it could all come back to haunt you. Venus moves into your area of spirituality on the 6th possibly making your way forward in love not too clear and also possibly clouding your judgment where your relationship is concerned. This will continue for the next few months. It may be that the best you can do is find a creative outlet for your feelings in the form of art or meditation rather than trying to get to the bottom of something and find it is actually a bottomless pit right now that doesn’t hold any concrete answers for you.
Moon in Aquarius November, 9, 10, 11
Life may be feeling exciting, fresh and new for you this month with the eclipse on the 3rd falling in your area of adventure and fun and Venus moving into your area of friendships. Sounds like nothing can go wrong for you and as long as you take the necessary precautions when it comes to the adventure and fun part then you should have a very happy November with little to worry about. Little to worry about that is apart from Mars which is spending the entire month in your relationship area which usually means not much fun at all. On the contrary, it could spark fighting between you and a loved one, have you feeling as if you are on edge when it comes to your love life and generally leave you with a headache. Concentrate on the adventurous and fun part of November and try to leave the bad stuff behind you.
