to be cautious—especially while traveling.

Tasha’s Astro Planner for November 2017

Jupiter is now firmly planted in Scorpio, and all us Scorpios can feel cheerful: good fortune is headed our way. At the beginning of the month there are only two planets in retrograde motion. Neptune turns direct the 22nd, leaving only Uranus moving “backward.”. Next month there is a shorter retrograde Mercury, lasting from the 3rd to the 22nd, Thus the end of this month sees a slowdown in communications and related activities. Get your Christmas shopping done either early or late as otherwise mix-ups, confusion, and other issues could arise.

Sun in passionate Scorpio moves to jovial Sagittarius on the 21st. Mercury in persistent Scorpio changes to philosophical Sagittarius on the 5th. Venus in gentle Libra turns possessive in Scorpio on the 7th. Mars is in balanced Libra all month. Saturn is in scholarly Sagittarius all month. It moves into Capricorn next month and some political chicanery may come home to roost. The outer planets-Uranus, Neptune and Pluto move slowly and except for when Neptune makes its station the 22nd, and Mars squares Pluto in the 19th, don’t have a lot of impact.

Full Moon in Taurus on the 4th suggests we spend the next two weeks solidifying arrangements and building on whatever choices we made in the last two weeks. New Moon in Scorpio the 18th suggests we begin projects relating to rebirth, renewal and reclamation. With a Mercury Retrograde coming next month we gain a running start on whatever needs to be repaired or refurbished before the end of the year. It is also the last call o bed down the garden for the winter.

This quiet month, the planet with the most activity appears to be Neptune, planet of illusions and the truth they obscure. Digging for the truth behind the illusion is important now. Scorpio occupying 2/3rds of the month is the only sign with four symbols: the scorpion, aka the sarcastic, cutting nature of some Scorpios; the lizard aka the tendency of some Scorpios to blend in and be secretive; the eagle, aka the noble, keen eyed far seeing Scorpios; and the phoenix, aka the transformative spiritual Scorpios.

Days to be mindful include the 4th with a Venus/Uranus opposition: beware of careless choices; the 13th with a Mercury /Neptune Square: look carefully at deceptive appearances; the 19th with a Mars/Pluto square: avoid violent actions or excessive activity; the 22nd with Neptune stationary: illusions run rampant. Days to push your luck include the 3rd with Sun/Neptune trine: music can be magical; the 11th with Saturn/Uranus trine: breakthroughs are possible; the 13th with Venus/Jupiter conjunct: a good luck day for all; the 16th with Venus/Neptune trine: spiritual opportunities abound, choose wisely; the 25th with Mercury/Uranus trine: innovative thinking and solutions; the 27th and 28th with Mercury/Saturn conjunct: positive effects from communications long term.

You Have a Special Hour Today
Spell Date: Sunday, November 5, 2017

Daylight saving time ended at 2:00 o’clock this morning by giving us back the hour it stole from us last spring. We can think of today as a 25-hour day. What are you going to do with that extra hour? You don’t need to wake up at 2:00 a.m. to celebrate. Instead, give yourself an hour in which you don’t have to meet anyone else’s expectations. A tarot spread can help you decide what to do.

Begin with card I, the Magician. That’s you today. What magic can you do today? Lay card II, the High Priestess, next to card I. She’s a trustworthy advisor. Listen to her voice as you shuffle the minor arcana cards. Let her guide you as you lay out three or four cards. What is she saying? Finish your spread with card VII, the Chariot. What is the path of your tarot journey today?

The Hand of Fate
Spell Date: Saturday, November 4, 2017

Using a lump of blue clay, sculpt a hand, copying the shape, size, and identifying details of one of your own hands. Carefully include your palm lines, and incorporate any planetary or elemental symbols you’d like to use to enrich your spell. Place this on a base of sesame seeds. Finally, insert a birthday cake candle into each sculpted fingertip. As you light each candle, say the following incantation:

“Fortuitous fate, intervene;
ensure my adaptive reasoning.”

Let all five candles burn down completely, then wrap this powerful spell in a black cloth and hide it in a secret location. Sprinkle the sesame seeds and any wax drippings at the doors and windows of your home to seal them with the fortification of the hand of fate. Keep it clandestine, keep it safe.

A Spell to Prepare Your Home for Spirits
Spell Date: Friday, November 3, 2017

Today, Mercury is resting well in the sign of Scorpio, adding increased awareness of the spirit world and opening the lines of communication between our realm and those of our allies. With the sun also transiting Scorpio and the moon dancing momentarily in Taurus, the conditions are right for you to find spirits in your home, especially the beloved dead.

Prepare for them by cleaning your home like you do when company is coming. Set out a bowl of milk, a glass of wine or juice, a cup of coffee, and a few snacks. Light a white candle, and as you do so, set the space by saying:

“From under and over, from within
and without, from behind and before,
I open the door. Spirits, join me, if you
are of good will. I’ve set this space for
you to fill!”

Allow the candle to burn safely for several hours.

Magic Media Diet
Spell Date: Thursday, November 2, 2017

Every day we consume huge amounts of data: news, information, education, commercials, stories, and tons of both useful and useless stuff. It resonates within us, creating perceptions and reality. With the sun in Scorpio now, the sign known for the 1960s catchphrase “Turn on, tune in, drop out,” it’s a great time to go on a magical media diet.

For one day, turn off the TV, resist the radio, avoid newspapers and online news sites, and don’t even read the blogs or Twitter feeds you follow. By dropping out of consuming outside media, you will turn on the inside imagination station and tune in to your own creative images. You never know what magic will bubble to the surface. Freed of outside images, our own images arise. We are inspired to create, express, and attune… to ourselves. If magic is “the power to transform energy at will,” then this indeed is magic.

Dance in the Graveyard
Spell Date: Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Did you know that by the turn of the 1800s, cemeteries were no longer just places for the dead, but also community parks meant to be visited and walked in? They were even places to hold picnics and other gatherings.

On this day, remember with joy your loved ones who’ve passed on by visiting them in the graveyard. Tidy their gravesites if needed, smile, and remember their time on earth with you. Honor your ancestors. Sprinkle a mixture of red rose petals ( love), yellow rose petals ( I will never forget you), rosemary (remembrance), and ivy (friendship) on the gravesite before leaving. And yes, it’s totally okay to talk to your loved one at their gravesite. If you don’t have loved ones buried close by, why not adopt a neglected-looking burial site at the nearest cemetery?

Supper for the Dead
Spell Date: Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Winds blow, trees creak. Leaves rustle, children giggle. Lighted pumpkins decorate doorsteps and you swear you can hear whispers in the night. It is the time of Samhain and Halloween. Honor the thinning veil and those long past by setting a place for your dearly departed loved ones.

You will need:
* A black tablecloth
* Marigolds
* A vase filled with water
* A place setting
* A skull candle
* Mementos of your loved ones

Cover your table space with the black tablecloth. Place the marigolds in the vase and set on the table. Lay out the place setting. Place the skull candle above the place setting. Add your mementos.

On Samhain night, light the skull candle. Take a moment to be with your loved ones across the veil. Say:

“Your presence is welcome here.
If you choose, please draw near.
Out of sight but never gone,
We welcome you here all night long.”

Spell to Part the Veil
Spell Date: Monday, October 30, 2017

During this time of year, the veil becomes its thinnest and the walls between the worlds come tumbling down. We can feel these changes and shifts and can harness the energies of the moment to fully part the veil and communicate with those on the other side.

Write the names of those you would like to contact on a piece of paper and go to the nearest graveyard. (Ideally, you would visit the graveyard where the people are buried, but any graveyard will do.) Spend some time walking through the gravestones and make your way to the back part of the property. There, read aloud the names of the dead you wish to communicate with and ask the spirits to aid you in this. As you make your way back to the front, clear off debris from nearby gravestones and thank the spirits in advance for their help.

Heartwings Love Notes 800 Dark Time is Rest Time

Heartwings says, “Dark time means rest time for all.”

The trees outside my window have lost most of their leaves. Some few still cling to their branches as a result of the late warm weather, however, not many. The trees are withdrawing from active participation in growth and expansion to rest and restoration, solidifying what has been gained. Nature is sensible that way, bringing opportunities for alternative modes of being. Most animals too are in their homes, resting from their work of gathering food and consuming it.

Once there was no electricity to keep us humming along 24/7. Many native people went into quasi hibernation mode in the winter. Judging from my own response the human body seems to be inclined that way. I always seem to sleep longer and even sounder during the darker hours between November and February. My body is happy with the additional rest. However I do not have to answer to a time clock at work or an alarm clock at home that tells me I must rise and get moving.

We humans do love the light. Throughout history various cultures have provided and still do provide their own opportunities to invoke it during the dark hours. In our Western European culture, our holidays devoted to light in one form or another commonly include Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. There are many other celebrations of light that are not as common because they have faded or been forgotten. They include interesting customs that include all kinds of symbolism as well as special dances and other activities. All of these opportunities help counter the inevitable lethargy brought on by the dark hours.

Although I do not count the years, I still celebrate my birthdays. Now I have another celebration coming up, and I am reminded that as a result of the numerous autumns I have lived through, the leaves of my days are indeed falling. Little by little they flutter down, gathering on the ground in colorful heaps. I have also noticed that as the days of my life increase, I am slowing down. I do not get as much done; I need to rest more. Sometimes this is frustrating. These days are precious and the daylight needs to be made use of. Still I need to be kind enough to myself to allow for the rest that I need to accommodate my strength, most especially as the days dwindle and the dark hours grow longer.

May you find time to rest during these hours and enjoy the days you celebrate.

Blessings and best Regards, Tasha Halpert

P.S. Please do write and tell me how you feel about this time of year. I so love to hear from my readers, and rejoice in your participation in my writing.  tashahal@aol.com

Stephen Halpert
Magee Haunted House 6

After we both enjoyed being bathed, groomed and refreshed at the new puppy salon, Sippi drove us back to her condo. Some dogs have a natural aversion to cats. Fortunately Blackie didn’t.
Ku and Blackie hit it off immediately. After their initial sniffs, the wise old Siamese peered at her closely, his blue eyes twinkling. Then after several minutes he sent his thoughts to me. “She knows her way through the darkness. Let her help you.”
“How?” was my immediate response. I’m a cop, plus I’ve always been a dog who walked alone. Maybe now that would be different.
“Come eat,” Sippi announced supper. We scampered into the kitchen. She fed Ku his usual fish filet. Then she served steak tips in delicious mushroom gravy to Blackie and me.
Blackie gulped hers down even faster than I did. I’ve always known Sippi to be mingy about seconds, and I was surprised when she refilled Blackie’s bowl. But not mine. I woofed and gave her my most pleading expression.
Sippi gave me her no nonsense look. “You’ve had your fill Magee. I don’t want you packin’ on any extra weight.”
Fat chance! Nonetheless I made a few more sounds and looked sadly at Blackie. Sippi’s phone rang. She went into the foyer.
“Who’s Desdemona?” Blackie’s thoughts were crystal clear. “You think about her a lot.”
I was surprised. I thought from our first meeting at the mansion that she couldn’t read my thoughts. If she could why hadn’t she already shared with me that way? And were my thoughts that easy for her to read? Feeling sad, I yipped. I thought about the gunshot that had killed Desdemona before we could escape together from the farmhouse. I shared my memories from that case with Blackie.
Blackie’s eyes teared up. Then she stretched out beside me. Her thoughts came through clearly. “Ku just now helped me learn to receive and send thoughts. I’m not as fast as you yet, Magee, but I’m learning.
I was delighted. What an incredibly wonderful gift she was proving to be.
Then to my surprise she got up and nudged her bowl toward me. There were still two steak tips left in it. She yipped. I woofed them down, yipped and waged my tail. She sniffed, waged her tail and licked my chin. We then joined Ku in Sippi’s den. He gave us his all knowing look and purred.
Sippi came in, petted us both and gave Ku a new catnip toy. He clutched it between his paws, rolled over and purred even louder.
“Magee,” Sippi said. “I think Blackie will make a good member of our investigative team.” I yipped and wagged my tail. Ku meowed approvingly. Blackie yawned, rolled over and dangled her legs in the air.
“Blackie,” Sippi said. “You’ll come with us when we go back to Twin Forks tomorrow.”
That night Ku slept on his usual rocking chair by the window. Blackie and I shared the living room couch.
After breakfast we met Raven and Chief Mallory at Headquarters.
“Well look at you,” Raven said bending down to pet Blackie. He gave her his winning smile. “Now you look ladylike and quite fetching.” But sadly for him she showed little if any enthusiasm.
“Lost your chance Raven,” Sippi said. “She’s Magee’s woman now.”
He grinned. “She looks a lot classier than she did yesterday.”
“Amazing what a bath and brushing can do,” Sippi said. “A coat like hers requires careful brushing.”
“You’re good at that,” he said briskly.
Sippi’s eyes widened. She looked at him oddly but said nothing.
Captain Mallory drove us back to Twin Forks.
Once there he conferred with two patrolmen he had left to guard the mansion. “Still no sight of that green Chevy?” He groused. “A junk heap like that can’t either disappear or get past our check points.”
“Then it’s still hidden near here,” Raven said. Whoever fired at us maybe they’re still near here too.”
Sippi unsnapped our leashes. “Ok kids, let’s go to work.”
Raven had his device held steady in his hands.
Sippi went to examine the passageway the hands had carried me through. How could I tell her that? I ran up and started barking.”
Her nose to the ground, Blackie sniffed, growled and kicked at dirt. I joined her and sniffed the same scent she had found.
We scampered across the driveway to the side of the ruin. Blackie ran ahead and eagerly started digging. The ground flew, she kicked against something solid.
We both barked. Chief Mallory spotted us. He and a patrolman came over. “Get a shovel,” he said.
The patrolman went back to his cruiser and came back with several.
Raven joined them and they dug out a long wooden box. The scent from it was awful and I barked, trying to let him know.
They pried it open. “My god,” Mallory said and then he radioed for the state police.
“Prison wear,” Raven said. “Bloodstained.”
What’s underneath,” Sippi said. With her boot she moved aside a bloodstained jacket.
Raven squatted down for a closer look. “It looks like something ancient, maybe stolen from a museum,” he said.
“That we can check, Mallory said.
A sudden breeze blew though the spot where we stood, ruffling Blackie’s and my fur. Sippi shivered and pulled her jacket tighter. She looked around as if she sensed something uncanny nearby.
Raven looked at the prison clothes. “These substantiate that it was the convicts who shot at us.
Sippi shook her had. “But who buried the clothes, not to mention this artifact? She put on a pair of gloves and lifted it out of the box. We have to investigate this.” She held it out. It was a cylinder about a foot long with strange writing on it. I sensed it was dangerous, and tried to send Sippi a message to be careful.
“Looks like something that might have come out of an ancient tomb. First a cache of diamonds, then this. What’s next Sherlock?” Mallory said.
Sippi petted us. “Nice work Blackie,” she said. “Don’t let Magee take all the credit. And he will too if you let him. You deserve your share.”
Blackie wagged her tail and licked Sippi’s hand. Sippi set the cylinder down and rubbed her ears.
I sniffed at the artifact. Something moved inside it.”

Sacred Vows
By Madisyn Taylor

A sacred vow, once spoken, becomes a part of your existence forevermore.
Speech is a vehicle for vows, but the sacred vows we speak are more than just words. When we make a promise, a subtle yet powerful shift takes place in our souls where intentions are housed. A vow is both a tool we employ in order to facilitate transformation within ourselves and an expression of will. Thus, to make an oath is to communicate to the universe and our deeper selves our commitment to the principles most important to us. Fulfilling a sacred vow–whether it is as complex as “’till death do us part” or as simple as “I promise”–challenges us, exercising our willpower and aiding personal growth.

When we speak a sacred vow out loud rather than reciting it in our minds or recording it on paper, our voices project our promises into the deepest reaches of the universe. It is important that we remember that a vow made with the sincerest of intentions has the power to carry on past our earthly lifetimes. A well-chosen vow encourages commitment and dedication. The presence or approval of a spiritual teacher is not necessary to success, as true oaths are a product of the heart.

A sacred vow, once spoken, becomes a part of your existence forevermore. Your view of the world around you may change, and your predominant thoughts and feelings will no doubt evolve with time, but the spirit in which your oaths were spoken will remain unaffected. It is up to you to determine how you will stay true to your vows while your inner- and outer-world existence is transformed. Your strength and character will inevitably be tested as circumstances make keeping promises increasingly challenging, but after you have shown yourself steadfast many times, your appreciation of the sanctity of vows will be cemented in your mind and soul.

Aries
Personal theme: I am!!
Fire & cardinal sign: March 21 — April 19

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: Aries, there are two themes for you for the month of November Aries, and they could be wrapped up in the single words: `togetherness, and `innovation`.

This `togetherness`, this sense of being close with others, personally, in relationships and at work, is important to you as an Aries. In fact while, on one hand, you were born under one of the most independent signs of the zodiac, and being ruled by the quick thinking and fast moving planet Mars, you`re amazing at dealing with things on your own, because your sign is positioned opposite the sign Libra – which is all about close relationships in every form – you`re OK when you`re on your own, but you thrive when you`re close to somebody, when you have close and intimate and nurturing relationships, when you`re able to work closely with somebody.

With the current emphasis on this and, in fact, with your ruler Mars and Venus, both positioned in Libra and in the part of your chart that has to do with these close alliances, as the month of November begins, this won`t just be on your mind, it will be something that will be working for you, in the sense that existing arrangements will support and excite you. Not only that, the other of the month`s themes goes back to earlier in the year when, in mid-May – on the 19th – Saturn, the planet of focus, formed a fantastic aspect to Uranus, the planet of innovation, which is actually positioned in Aries.

At that time new ideas, offers, or even somewhat unexpected situations could have drawn you into either new places, unfamiliar arenas of activities, or possibly even they suggested a new line of work. Certainly, with Saturn being one of the two planets involved in this, and having to do with plans or projects that matter to you or your career, if you have one, life will be very much about exploring these.

While this aspect between Saturn and Uranus took place in May, it`s repeated in November – on the 11th – and indicates that many of those ideas, arrangements and plans you put together then will reappear, although possibly in a slightly different form, one different from what you`d initially anticipated; but, also, that form will be very much part of this month`s theme – which is about working together with others.

With your ruler Mars positioned to accent close alliances until early December – until the 9th – for you, much of the month of November will be about learning to work with others. While, as previously mentioned, you thrive when involved in close alliances, there can be one difficulty – and that is that you tend to think and move so swiftly, that you can become impatient with others. This also means that, on occasional, you need to compromise in some way, personally or in a professional setting. When working closely with others, you`ll sometimes face serious issues or differences, and because of that, will need to come up with something you both agree on.

This can be difficult for you, as an occasionally single-minded, if not stubborn, Aries; but it`s also about sharing responsibility, something that you occasionally find difficult – and could find particularly tricky in mid-November, when your ruler Mars is at odds with Pluto, the planet of truth, but also of power struggles. Not only that, because this takes place around the time of the New Moon, on November 18th, it may well be that those difficulties, differences or disputes are all about the need, again, to compromise – which is one of this month`s major themes.

What may be most important to bear in mind, however, is that this is a period of enormous growth and development – although possibly not in ways you`ll have anticipated, and also not at the pace you`d like. Once you understand that, then you`ll take a deep breath and you`ll allow things to proceed at the pace they need to. Occasionally, you will allow them to go in the direction they need to go without over-managing things, as you can sometimes do.

As for the message from the planets for the month, this is all about togetherness, both in terms of what you`re doing, but also in terms of what you learn; and the hint from the planets is to remember that sometimes indeed others are slower than you – they more slowly, and they think move more slowly, as well. If you can manage to accept that, then you`ll not only achieve a great deal during the month of November, you`ll enjoy every day of it as well.

1st Decan: Red-hot Mars, your ruling planet will remain in Libra, your seventh house of partnerships, committed relationships, and how you relate to others for the entire month of November. If you`re attached, this kind of “burning love” energy could really help you and your significant other turn up the heat in your relationship. If you`re single, then don`t waste this chance; take advantage of Mars` determination and desire for action to help you find a potential mate. Also, Venus and Jupiter will form a conjunction in your eighth house of private encounters and personal relationships on the 13th, all done up in sexy Scorpio. Venus will trine Neptune on the 16th, the perfect setting for a romantic date night. Then there`s always the New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th, the perfect time to get something started, single or attached. This November, it all depends on what you`re looking for. Whether it`s lust or long-term seems to be up to you, naturally.

2nd Decan: Devoting yourself to cultural pursuits will be good for you at the start of November. Dive into a good book, listen to beautiful music and enjoy a movie marathon or a box set night in. The Full Moon on the 4th brings in an impressive payment for a job well done. Use some of these earnings for a solitary trip. Staying at a tranquil place by the water will give you the peace and quiet you feel your soul needs. You`ll be celebrated for your unique style toward the middle of the month. Don`t be surprised when you`re asked to share your inspired ideas with others. Your audience will love the innovative spin you put on traditional forms. On the 18th, the New Moon will mark an exciting turning point in a close relationship. You may decide to make a serious commitment to a loving partner or pool your resources to start a business venture. Follow your conscience when faced with an ethical choice at the end of month.

3rd Decan: On Friday 11th, an aspect between Saturn and Uranus that`s been more or less exact throughout 2017 comes to its final moment of exactitude. From then, markets may no longer have the buoyancy they`ve had. A peak should be reached that weekend. This could be the moment to realise an asset. Both sales and purchases are well aspected that weekend – though the decision to take part in these could be made at the Full Moon on November 4th. Challenges may well arise slightly ahead of the Sun`s move into Sagittarius (21st). On Monday 20th there are signals suggesting that expenses will outstrip income – and considerably. Despite the fact that from 22nd the Sun will be moving through another of the Fire signs, you should perhaps approach the last few days of November with caution and, especially around 28th, be prepared for either an interest rate rise or cost increase as a result of changing foreign currency rates. With all this in mind, it might be as well to set aside time at the very start of the month, to put in place a financial safety net.

Finance: Both the Full Moon in Taurus on November 3rd and the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18th will highlight your money houses – the second and eighth houses. You`ll definitely have your money on your mind, and you`ll likely be working on your long-term financial goals. If you didn`t think to put a plan in place for the future last month, then this month is the time. You want to have a plan and/or budget in place before the holidays start, and since you like to go big in gifts and entertaining, this really is a big deal. However, don`t try to make sense of things on the 16th when Venus in your house of other people`s money trines Neptune (retrograde) in Pisces – your twelfth house. This may give you the idea that all is well in finances and that there`s no need to tweak or change, but this combination of planetary energy can also be deceiving, so keep track of spending.

Taurus
Personal theme: I have!!
Earth & fixed sign: April 20 — May 20

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: For you, Taurus, the month of November could be a confusing one – if you didn`t understand the nature of what you`re dealing with. In fact, in a certain way it could be said that it`s part of a rather intense shift of energy that will have begun in October, actually, from the 10th, when Jupiter the planet that`s all about growth and development, moved into the part of your chart that has to do with close alliances, personal and professional.

This accents those around you, possibly close alliances in your personal life, but also your associates out in the world or in your job, if you go to one. Working together with others, you`ll will be coming up with interesting ideas or doing something that`s stimulating yet, perhaps, at the same time, somewhat unsettling. Intriguingly, in late October on the 26th, the Sun actually meets Jupiter, in the part of your chart that accents those ideas and options you`ve been discussing since early October, when Jupiter moved into this position. The promises to bring together – and rather spectacularly – wonderful ideas and options, which also means that, as you begin the month of November there`ll be a lot of talk about changes.

While, obviously, you`ll be excited, you may also be anxious. However, that anxiety will be in large part due to the powerful and pivotal Full Moon in your sign – the Taurus Full Moon – which takes place on the 4th of November. Of course, there`s a Full Moon every month, but the Full Moon in your own sign brings both your feelings about certain matters and actual circumstances to a head. Ordinarily, this would pass swiftly; but because you`re in a period during which circumstances around you – both the situations of others and your own priorities – are shifting, you could find yourself turning what are really minor anxieties into rather large worries, at least around the time of the Full Moon.

However, as is the case with every Full Moon, those feelings will pass. The trick is to recognise the difference between those feelings heightened by the Full Moon and the way it intensifies situations and, just as much, the excitement triggered by the events taking place around you, and in your own life. On the same day as the Full Moon – on the 4th – your ruler Venus forms an extremely powerful aspect to Uranus, with is itself about innovation and suggests that some of that anxiety may be due to getting involved in something new, exciting – but also possibly something you`re unfamiliar with or something that would require making some changes.

Or, just as much, this could have to do with your activities out in the world; and, equally, if you`re seeking a partner, it could also have to do with exactly that – with connecting with somebody who could, possibly, mean a great deal to you. What`s more, with your ruler Venus actually meeting the fortunate Jupiter in the middle of the month of November, on the 13th, this could be about forming a fantastic new connection or deepening the existing ones – or possibly both, especially because there are many kinds of relationships. Not only that, this theme of growth continues both in terms of your own circumstances and the improvements in close alignments with others or developing new relationships.

It also has to do with the other theme of the month which is the amazing growth triggered by developments in the world around you. In May of this year, the practical Saturn formed an aspect to Uranus – and this aspect is repeated again in November, on the 11th. This, too, is about new ideas, excitement and breakthroughs, and these could lead to exactly the kind of excitement that you need in your life – excitement that heightens your enthusiasm about life in general, even though, when it comes to the actual situations, you may not be able to figure out exactly how things will turn out, at least right away – something which can be difficult for you, as a Taurus.

Your, theme, therefore is to recognise that this isn`t about a single day or a single decision, but about exploring every new idea, enjoying the encounters you have with others and recognising that some may not last – but will be rewarding in the short-term, and others could be of great significance.

And our hint for the month of November follows on from this – don`t even attempt to decide what`s best right now. Explore and enjoy what you`re doing, who you`re meeting and know that while some of what you do will turn into a pleasant if not thrilling memories, other of those ideas and encounters could add significantly to your life now and in the months and, possibly, years to come.

1st Decan: On November 5th, Mercury, the messenger with wings on his feet, will move into fun-loving Sagittarius, who is always on the move. Sagittarius represents your eighth house of secret encounters and partnerships as well as things you share with others, and Sagittarius is all about fun and adventure. It will be hard to resist the urge to get out and have a good time. If friends and co-workers don`t make the first move to get the gang together after work and on the weekends, then you will take the lead. Mercury can give you that “YOLO” (“you only live once”) feeling when it`s in this house so there`s little use in trying to resist it. Besides, everything else you`re not tending to can probably wait. The real upside here is that you may find you have more in common with acquaintances and co-workers than you first thought.

2nd Decan: Enjoy the good things that come along with your world of work at the beginning of the month. On the 4th, the Full Moon will put you squarely in the spotlight. This is a wonderful opportunity to show off your creative knowledge and know how. A prestigious organisation will give you a grant, loan or scholarship toward the middle of the month. As a result, you`ll be able to earn add to your qualifications, study with a seasoned expert or take a world tour. The New Moon on the 18th finds you irresistibly drawn to someone with a commanding personality. Embarking on a romance or starting a business are all worth considering. A legal matter could go against you at the approach of December; you will have to decide whether it`s better to carry on or settle now and cut your losses. Conserving your resources is more important than creating trouble for someone who cheated you. Christmas is coming; don`t spoil it by seeking revenge.

3rd Decan: This month`s Full Moon is in your sign on 4th comes within hours of a key aspect between Jupiter – now moving through your opposite sign – and Pluto. It seems likely that you will make an important yet astute financial move around this time. True, there may be a regulation to be negotiated on November 1st. This though may be something for which you are well prepared. Taking fresh stock of your position as Mercury, the planet of commerce, moves out of your opposite sign on Monday 6th would surely be wise. Indeed, arranging a meeting with a financial adviser for that date might be appropriate. Within just a few days, and with the Moon`s Last Quarter on 10th, further decisions could be taken. These seem to involve long-term planning, – and perhaps even a foreign or international adventure. Care should be taken around 19th when costs could soar: possibly as a result of rising rates. By the end of this month, it seemed likely you will indeed have made a major investment or at the very least put in place a business plan that will protect you from volatility should interest rates rise as expected in December.

Finance: Saturn may be a taskmaster planet, but it`s also a planet that can set things right and provide support in whatever house it occupies. For you, November is the last full month that you`ll have Saturn in your seventh house, where it`s been for the past couple of years. This is the house of partnerships, so you may be dealing with eighth-house similarities such as shared expenses, and other people`s money (mortgages, taxes, loans, inheritances, etc.). Saturn figures that by the end of a transit, you`ve taken its cues and suggestions and coped with situations that have taught you to handle things on your own like a professional. Get a filing cabinet and some folders and make a few spreadsheets. Do whatever you need to in order to make your finances accessible and understandable at a glance, especially so close to year-end tax time. After the 5th you`ll have Mercury in your eighth house, which looks more like a social transit than a money-spending one. You`ll have time for both fun and obligations so don`t worry.

Gemini
Personal theme: I think!!
Air sign: May 21 — June 20

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: As a Gemini, you were born under one of the most inquisitive, creative and thoughtful signs of the zodiac. However, you don`t realise this until you talk to other people and notice how little interest they have in the world around them, in new ideas or, in fact, in what other people are up to. Being ruled by Mercury, the planet of ideas, this kind of inquisitiveness comes naturally to you – it`s as natural as breathing. This is also the reason why you`ll make remake, rethink, and then reorganise plans, and more than once. This isn`t because you`re bored as much as you`re inquisitive, so will organise a plan then, while you`re in the midst of that process, will discover new ideas, meet new people and, of course, find you must rethink those plans.

While, again, to you this is as natural as breathing, it`s also one of the reasons that many Geminis find themselves in careers or in situations that turn this ability to view circumstances from a wide range of perspectives into a profession. Many Geminis are in communication in some way, whether it`s assisting someone in an office, or perhaps actually in the business of keeping track of information or being a writer or journalist of some sort. During the month of November, this talent of yours will be particularly important, simply because so much of this month is about exactly that – about staying in close communication with others.

Of course, the other element that will have to do with being in communication with others, involves those who you`re close to. Often those around you, that is, those at home, family, friends or colleagues will, somehow, take a role in making decisions that are be difficult for you, because you`re either unsure of your own views or, alternatively, don`t feel confident enough to make certain decisions on your own.

This might, in fact, make you realise the degree to which that – by and large – you, as a Gemini, tend to make decisions on your own, and then tell those around you about it later. However, during the month of November with a tremendous planetary focus on the portions of your chart that have to do with life`s practicalities, and with joint ventures of various kinds – that is, situations involving others – many decisions will be made by those around you.

In some cases, it will be a relief simply because either those matters are so complicated that you`d rather not get involved or the individuals in question are actually better informed than you are. Still, as things unfold you might find that you want to either give others input or that you`d like to reshape things according to your thoughts about them. While it`s important to discuss these matters, you`re urged to avoid finalising any major changes for now. Actually, it`s best if they wait until you move into the month of December, simply because the Full Moon in your own sign – the Gemini Full Moon – which brings both feelings and circumstances to a head, takes place than on December 3rd.

It`s also interesting to note, however, that on that same day your ruler Mercury begins one of its regular cycles of retrograde or reverse movement – remaining retrograde until December 23rd. This, too, is about changes, but changes that you won`t necessarily have planned. This also means that had you struggled to have things organised the way you want during the month of November, they`d only need to change anyway. That being the case therefore, you`ll want to work closely with others simply to learn what`s on their mind, and to learn from where their ideas take you. It actually isn`t worth struggling with others about plans now, simply because those plans are likely to change.

However, if there`s anything you want to keep in mind – and, in fact, the message from the planets for the month of November is this: it`s to be patient. You don`t think of yourself as being impatient; but with your quick mind and your ability to gather information more rapidly than others, you can be exactly that. During the month of November, focus on watching and learning.

And, most of all, heed the hint from the planets, which is to regard what you discuss, what you encounter and who you meet as more of an adventure than as something that needs to be fit into a major plan.

Take that approach, and not only will you learn a great deal during the month of November, what you learn, and learn about ideas and arrangements that arise will come together, but probably not right away; and, better yet, you`ll enjoy every day of the journey as well.

1st Decan: Single Geminis should circle the 16th on your November 2017 Horoscope calendar when Venus in Scorpio, aka your sixth house of daily work and reputation, forms a red-hot trine to the semi-woozy, fantasy-driven Pisces (occupying your tenth house of career). You could find yourself lusting after a co-worker or client. Venus can be quite naughty in Scorpio and though you may be tempted to indulge, this could turn out to be a short-lived fantasy with no long-lasting results. If you really like this person, take it slow. To complicate matters (or not, depending on how you look at it) you`ll have headstrong Mars in the partnership sign of Libra and your fifth house of fun and playmates all month long. This energy works really well for those in a relationship who are trying to spice things up or just find more things to do together. If you`re single, then putting on the brakes when it comes to risk-laden adventures will be almost impossible.

2nd Decan: Your creative work will earn you a reputation for innovation and skill at the start of the month. Don`t be surprised if you`re given more artistic assignments as a result of a job well done. If you`re looking for work, you could find an excellent career opportunity involving film, fashion or photography. Alternatively, you might join a charitable or humanitarian organisation. The Full Moon on the 4th will bring a welcome opportunity to rest, relax and reflect. Clear your schedule of responsibility and give yourself permission to daydream. At the middle of November, you`ll get tremendous moral support from a capable partner. Let your best friend, lover or business associate encourage you to pursue an unusual dream. As the month draws to a close, your expenses are bound to rise. That`s only natural with the approach of Christmas. Set limits on your spending and give yourself enough time to shop for gifts. Some you can buy and others you can make.

3rd Decan: You may recall that for the last couple of years, Saturn has been moving through your opposite sign. No doubt you have endlessly felt to be `up against it`. Costs may have risen substantially. Saturn does not leave Sagittarius until almost the end of December and throughout this month, controlling expenses will surely continue to take up much of your time. That said, you could be tempted to make a major investment around the Full Moon on November 4th. You might reasonably feel that without this you cannot move on at all. As early as 11th however, this move could pay off – or at least show signs of doing so. By then, and with Mercury in your opposite sign, you may find that others are more willing to discuss any difficulties and assist in finding ways around them. That said, you might need to draw a financial boundary by Monday 20th: making clear that you are not in a position to invest further though you could review this decision early in 2018. It might be as well to be prepared for a financial rap on the knuckles around Tuesday 28th. It may be that a cost is fair but that the timing of an invoice creates a difficulty. It might even necessary before the end of November to extend credit. Bear in mind that with Saturn`s move into Capricorn next month rates are likely to rise. In short, if you have to borrow, research as to optimum deals is imperative.

Finance: It`s going to be a busy and possibly challenging month for you and your finances, Gemini. No one likes news that sounds like it could be bad, but that`s why astrology exists – it`s like a GPS that warns you of possible obstacles ahead so that you can do your best to avoid them. Mercury will Square Neptune (retrograde) on the 13th. When it comes to your working life/career, there could be some confusion and even a bit of drama. Don`t rock the boat; try going with the flow this time. Everything old is new again when Mars squares Pluto on the 18th through the 19th of November. You and someone you share things with (like bills or obligations) might get into a disagreement about something financial you thought was taken care of. Pluto brings some unexpected and explosive events, especially when butting heads with headstrong Mars. On top of that, the New Moon in intense Scorpio on the 18th could make this difficult and long-lasting.

Cancer
Personal theme: I feel!!
Water & cardinal sign: June 21 — July 22

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: For you, Cancer, the month of November is about two distinct areas of your life. One has to do with who and what brings you joy in life, with the people who mean the most to you. With family, close friends, offspring or even those with whom you join together to undertake activities that lift your spirits in some way. Not only that, with Jupiter – itself the planet of growth and development – just having moved into the part of your chart that has to do with these alliances, with these individuals, and with these activities, and Jupiter remaining there for a year, you`re in a period that`s all about not just growth, but discovery – and possibly broadening your horizons in terms of those activities and those individuals, what you do and who you spend your time with.

Consequently, as you live out the days of the month of November, you will be in what might be termed `exploration mode`. It`s very much about discovery – and it`s important that you save time to do that, but also that you`re in the mood that allows you to take good advantage of these experiences and these encounters. It`s worth noting that with Venus, which is itself the planet of close alliances and relationships and also money, actually meeting Jupiter, in this portion of your chart, on the 15th of November, this isn`t merely about an interesting encounter. This could have to do with important and exciting discoveries, meetings and events that would lead to rewarding developments in your life.

And that only one element of what November`s about. The other part of the chart accents the practical side of life, that is, various obligations, your job, if you go to one, and especially the structure of your life, and your long-term goals. Some of these matters will have been on your mind for quite a while. In fact, with the most practical planet of them all, Saturn, having formed a powerful and superb alliance with Uranus, which is all about innovation, twice this year – the first time on May 19th and again during November, you`ll have been thinking about what could be done and potential changes since then. These all come together this month, in the run up to the second link between Saturn and Uranus, on November 11th. Consequently, you`ll find that much of November is about taking these ideas and plans to the next stage. While this will be delightful, it might also make you somewhat anxious simply because Uranus is the planet of innovation and consequently you`ll be heading into new territory in some way. While many Cancerians are highly entrepreneurial and enjoy taking chances, as many are very security conscious.

If you`re one of the latter group, it`s important that you recognise that there are times when what seems to be taking a chance or seems too risky is actually only about going into new territory. If you`re amongst the group that tends to feel anxious, you might want to take a moment to think back to other times when you felt similarly ill-at-ease or anxious about situations that were the new or unfamiliar, and things turned out brilliantly. The odds are good they will this time, too. Certainly, you owe it to yourself to explore absolutely everything that arises.

The other major component of this period is to recognise that, because it is a period of growth, while some arrangements will be clear cut, during the month of November as many won`t be. In fact, it may not until you move into the New Year and the time for the all-important Cancer Full Moon, in early January – on the 2nd – that things will be clear. This isn`t because of problems but rather, it`s just that`s what`s happening, these exciting developments will take time to settle and grow; and, equally, you`ll want to work with others, you`ll want to ask questions, you`ll want to learn as much as you can, both about those exciting personal matters highlighted by Jupiter`s position, but about those rather thrilling developments that are unfolding as well.

Your message from the planets for the month of November, therefore, is to do exactly that, to explore – and explore absolutely everything, even if it doesn`t make much sense and even if you`re unsure you want to pursue it. At minimum you`ll learn something.

The second thing you want to remember is the hint from the planets which is, if ever there was a time to at least think about taking chances, it`s now during the month of November, as you move into December, and as you approach that all-important Cancer Full Moon in early January.

1st Decan: The big news for your November 2017 Horoscope is that this is the first full month where you get to experience expansive Jupiter in Scorpio, representing your fifth house of dating, self-expression, and playmates. The next 12 months can be quite fun on the love and dating front – all you have to do is say “yes.” Another exciting transit for November is Venus in sexy, fellow water sign Scorpio from the 7th on. As a matter of fact, Venus and Jupiter will join hands on the 13th. This not only bodes well for your love life but your creative side as well; you`ve got that footloose feeling and you like it. If single, then expanding your social circle may just lead you to “the one” this month. If attached, then recapturing that first-date feeling between you and your other half will come easy. Hang that “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door on the 18th when the New Moon in Scorpio will energize this month-long lovefest.

2nd Decan: Use the opening days of November to satisfy your wanderlust. Whether you go on a spiritual pilgrimage, visit a bustling metropolis or enjoy some armchair travel is immaterial. The important thing is to enjoy the sights, sounds and sensations of another culture. On the 4th, the Full Moon will inspire you to attend a party. Don`t be surprised if you start turning heads at this get together. Don`t leave until you have gathered a few phone numbers. An unusual career opportunity will fall into your lap in the middle of the month. Be sure to follow it up, even though it involves some heavy responsibilities. You`ll find this job to be one of the most rewarding you`ve ever held. The New Moon on the 18th will mark the announcement of an engagement, marriage or pregnancy. Indulging your own whims could result in an argument at the end of the month. Don`t feel guilty about doing what you want to do.

3rd Decan: The temptation to overspend could be great in the days ahead of the New Moon on November 18th. It might be as well to red-mark your diary 10th – 14th and perhaps even hide your credit card from yourself over these dates. This is not to say that November is a negative month for finance. There are signs – especially around 21st – when you could secure excellent bargains. It might also be prudent to invest in essential items. This could be literal – or through companies providing these products and services. Domestic costs may be considerable in the days leading into the Full Moon on November 4th. Not necessarily related to an anniversary or festivity, the need to invest in large items might then be apparent. It could also be that these are indeed wise investments. Even so, it could leave you feeling on Monday 6th as though you`ve dug too deeply into reserves. Restoring these might not be too difficult before the aforementioned potentially expensive period midmonth. In short then, the basic advice for November would be to proceed with caution whilst being on alert for sound investments related to day-to-day living.

Finance: Your life is centred on home and family so around the 3rd, someone close to you may ask you for a financial favour or a place to crash, thanks to Venus. Venus, still in your fourth house in Libra, will be at a hard angle to Uranus in your career house. If you can help, then do it, but don`t be afraid to say no if you have to. In other words, don`t put yourself in a precarious financial situation in order to help others. After fun-loving Venus moves into sexy Scorpio on the 7th, it will be even harder to stay on track with career and finances. Think of November as a balancing test. If you can manage to get sleep, have fun, and get your work done (and the bills paid) then you have discovered how truly sweet life can be. We didn`t even mention expansive Jupiter who just moved into your fifth house of fun and playmates. It won`t be easy, but you can do it.

Leo
Personal theme: I will!!
Fire & fixed sign: July 23 — August 22

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: For you, Leo, the month of November is one of a series of months that`s about examining what you do, your priorities and, most of all, the structure of your life. As a Leo and a fire sign, you benefit from both a courageous and generous nature. Also, you benefit from that fiery swiftness of mind and willingness to get into something because you believe in it.

However, with Jupiter – which is itself the planet of growth and development – only just having moved to accent the structure of your life in early October, on the 10th and with it remaining there for a year, until November of 2018, you are in a period during which you will actually be thinking about the past – possibly more than you usually do. You`ll be reviewing what works and what doesn`t but, at the same time, you`ll also be thinking about the future and what you want to do and what`s next.

However, it`s important to recognise that intriguing as these matters are, and as much as you have in mind, you couldn`t possibly know everything that was out there to do. This also means, therefore, that while during the month of November you`ll need to make certain decisions, it`s essential that you regard those as either flexible, tentative – or even a bit of an experiment. This isn`t your nature as a Leo, but the encounter between the Sun and Jupiter itself, in late October on the 26th, will have a set the pace, will have led to you thinking that there are all sorts of ideas to explore, people to meet, new things to consider – which is very much the case.

Then your ruler the Sun`s superb aspect to Neptune, the planet of vision, on the 3rd of November suggests even more than that. It suggests you`ll have a sense of something thrilling coming your way. Not only is that true, this is a period during which the actual circumstances you`re dealing with shift, which means it`s unlikely you`ll know the shape of those changes or where they`ll take you until December. That`s because on December 20th, Saturn, which is the planet of focus, moves into a new position, and into the part of your chart that has to do with the structure of your life. It takes Saturn nearly thirty years to go through the entire zodiac, and so it moves into a sign about every two and a half years.

During the past two and a half years, it`s been accenting who and what you most enjoy in life – and you`ve been focusing on how to make the best of that. Now, as you move into December – but even more, as you move into the year of 2018, with Saturn and, as of December 21st your ruler the Sun together, in that part of your chart – and with Saturn and the Sun actually meeting on December 21st – you`ll find that suddenly there`s a new arena of activities, pursuits and ideas to learn about. Even more than that, you`ll realise that there are certain things you want to change. What you learn and the new vision for your life and for possibilities, that`s been central to the month of November will contribute to that new vision of the future in December.

It`s for this reason that while you`ll be excited about what`s possible, you will – quite wisely – be hesitant about making commitments, especially commitments that you can`t change as events unfold. This is also about venturing into new territory, in terms of new ideas – and here, again, this isn`t about a single day or a single plan. In fact, with Saturn, which is a primary planetary player in this cycle, having superbly aspected of the inventive Uranus, in mid-May, and forming the same planetary aspect again on November 11th, and with these two indicating exciting changes and new possibilities, life is very much about that. It`s about who you meet, what you discover and the changes you could make.

The message from the planets for the month of November is, therefore, that life`s very much all about discovery, about what`s new and exciting and thrilling. It is not, however, about making decisions. Adopt that flexible approach as you begin the month of November and although your fiery Leo nature might want to turn ideas into plans, the sooner you soon realise how restrictive that could be, the better.

Instead, make this a month of discovery, and not only will you enjoy it – what you learn will contribute to the decisions that you make, but decisions that you probably won`t be making until late December or even as you move into the New Year.

1st Decan: It`s a good thing you like it “hot” because the excitable planet Mercury will move into fellow fire sign Sagittarius on the 7th, setting your fifth house of fun and playmates ablaze. Sagittarius is one sign that always puts a smile on your face without fail. Uranus (retrograde) still in Aries (another fellow fire sign) will help to keep things fun and slightly unpredictable. If you`re single, then Uranus may help you meet an interesting stranger from another world. It could be an alien, but most likely it`s someone from another state or country with an adorable accent. Nonetheless, this could be an intriguing encounter that you`ll not soon forget. Also, on November 11th Saturn (in Sagittarius) trines Uranus retrograde. This is a seemingly magical day for you where you can literally make your hopes and wishes come true. Think it. Believe it. Live it. It would not be polite to the Universe to waste this kind of energy, so get out there and live your dream.

2nd Decan: Spend the opening days of November catching up with your nearest and dearest. Domestic pursuits, like fixing lavish meals for a family dinner, will be good for the inner you. You could be in line for a rise, promotion or both on the 4th, when the Full Moon highlights your considerable professional skills. If you`ve been looking for work, you`ll land a new position on or around this magical day. You`ll be able to travel for both business and pleasure toward the middle of the month; embrace the chance to visit an exotic country that`s not a typical tourist destination. The New Moon on the 18th is perfect for buying or selling a piece of property. Moving to a secluded area that helps you decompress from public appearances is strongly advised. As November draws to a close, you`ll be attending a bewildering array of parties. Make sure to wear something special to these festive occasions; all eyes will be on you.

3rd Decan: With so much planetary attention now at the very base of your solar chart it would be unsurprising if by midmonth you hadn`t arrived at a conclusion as to how best to tackle asset management: likely property-related. As early as the Full Moon on Saturday 4th it may be apparent that action must be taken. That lunation coincides with a key aspect between Jupiter and Pluto: the two `wealth-giving` planets. It may be that an investment decision is taken at this time. Since this might not have been part of your agenda for the year it could take you some days to come to terms with decisions made – even if you consider these to be correct. Yours is after all, one of the Fixed signs of the zodiac and doing things which were not part of your natural agenda can take time to accept. All that said, your financial acumen – although much depends on your actual personal chart, – should be in excellent working order around the Last Quarter Moon in your sign on November 10th. Indeed, if you were to look back on the last two years, you might decide that decisions taken within that timeframe have indeed worked out well. That said, the weekend of 18th- 19th could find you once again in turmoil. It may be that there is lack of clarity as to what financial support you will receive from others. Given that there is the possibility of you feeling let down – especially around Tuesday 28th, – it might be as well (before Saturday 25th) to remind someone of their obligations and make clear that these need to be met before the end of the month.

Finance: After Venus moves into secretive Scorpio on the 7th, she`ll spend approximately one month there. Scorpio represents your fourth house of home and family and Venus represents love and money. Don`t be tempted to keep financial agreements or situations hidden from your partner, as doing so could lead to a bump in your relationship sector. However, if you feel you should keep secrets then money isn`t your only worry and it`s time to figure out why you think this way. If you`re in a new relationship or none at all, then you only have to share your financial story with those you choose. On the 11th Saturn will trine Uranus retrograde for the third and final time since December 2016. Financial stability is one of the gifts this transit can bring, so start planning your future now. It`s never too early or too late, and now it will be easier to handle.

Virgo
Personal theme: I analyse!!
Earth sign: August 23 — September 22

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: As you begin the month of November, Virgo, your odds are good that your head will be spinning; and now, as you listen to this, you`ll probably understand why. It`s not because there`s anything wrong – as much as there`ll have been so much going on over the past months, that you`ll have had to deal with one thing and then think about another and then think about the next. As a quick-minded Virgo, you rather enjoy this variety of challenge. It makes what might be termed `positive demands` on your mind and your active, inquisitive psyche. It also means that as things change, you learn a lot.

What`s more, with Jupiter – itself the planet of growth and development – having moved into a new part of your chart in October, on the 10th, and with your ruler Mercury actually meeting it there on the 18th of October, you`ll already have been thinking about, and have heard about, a range of exciting ideas and opportunities – and as they`re all triggered, as you begin the month of November, you`ll be thinking about those.

The trick to dealing with these is exactly that – to think about these, but unless they seem fairly solid or alternatively can be easily changed, you want to focus more on those thoughts that on trying to solidify any arrangements or trying to make lasting plans. The fact is, you and the world around you, are in a period of change.

With both Jupiter, in October, and Saturn, in December, moving into new signs, this isn`t about what might be called `the same old thing`. It`s about a shift in the focus in the lives of others, in the world around you, and in your own life. Not only that, with Saturn forming the second of two powerful alliances with Uranus, which is itself about innovation, on November 11th, this isn`t about a single day – it`s about a period of growth. That first link between Saturn and Uranus, in mid-May of this year, will have got you thinking, and got others going, and will encourage the kind of exploration that is exciting for you, but which ultimately you, as a Virgo and an earth sign, like to see turned into a lasting plan.

That plan will happen. That will occur – but possibly not for some time yet. In fact, as you live out the days of the month of November, it`s important that you recognise that this is a period of discovery rather than one about making single decisions – and certainly it`s not about making lasting plans. In fact, if there`s any single thing to focus on now, during this period, it`s that you`ll want to consider what you want to let go of. It`s worth noting that with your ruler, Mercury, moving into one of the most inquisitive parts of your chart, and into the fiery Sagittarius, as the month of November begins, then going retrograde in that sign, on December 3rd, and remaining retrograde until December 23rd, still in this most inquisitive sign Sagittarius, life is very much about review.

While the period when Mercury is retrograde is considered by some to be bad news, actually it`s more about reviewing the facts, sometimes simply because you want to review them, and other times because of errors; but rarely has Mercury`s retrograde cycle been better timed, simply because what you learn and discover during that period will enable you to be well equipped when the time comes to make the decisions you`ll be making – a few during November, some during December – but probably most of those decisions won`t be made until you move into early January.

When? On January 13th, your ruler Mercury – no longer retrograde – itself meets Saturn, in its new position, and in your fellow earth sign of Capricorn. This shifts the focus to new ideas and what you can do, which takes us back to November and the importance of, first, recognising that life isn`t about a single decision, but about exploration and taking chances – taking chances in exploring the new, and taking chances on letting go of the past.

And, most of all, recognise the hint from the planets, which is that you can – and will – learn from everything that happens. Focus on that and rather than worrying about things coming out as they should, you`ll enjoy the process – and particularly each of November`s adventurous days.

1st Decan: If you`re ready for romance then you should circle the 16th on your November 2017 Horoscope calendar. Venus in Scorpio, your third house of communication, will trine Neptune retrograde in Pisces, your seventh house of partnerships, marriage, and one-on-one relationships. Your earthly energy goes well with this watery trine and the feeling in the air is almost ethereal. You may find yourself falling for someone, uttering the words “I love you” or just having an overwhelming attraction to someone – even if it`s someone you`re already in a relationship with. On the 21st, the day that the Sun enters Sagittarius, Venus forms a destined-to-love feeling with extreme Pluto in Capricorn, aka your fifth house of fun and frivolity. Someone you considered a friend could suddenly become very romantically intriguing. If you`re already in a relationship love will bring you closer, and expressing feelings with deep intensity will seem second nature.

2nd Decan: An intimate relationship will be a profound source of comfort at the beginning of the month. Clear your schedule so you can spend quality time with your favourite person. On the 4th, the Full Moon brings the successful conclusion of a legal or official matter. At long last, you`ll feel free to travel. Schedule a trip to a destination that is famous for its natural beauty. You could get a generous gift from a relative at the middle of the month. Don`t worry; there will be no strings attached to this tribute. Write a heartfelt thank you note for this present. The New Moon on the 18th will inspire you to sign up for a challenging course. Acquiring valuable skills will dramatically expand your professional opportunities. As the month winds down, you`ll be spending more time at home with your nearest and dearest. Arranging and planning a big Christmas party will appeal to your love of planning.

3rd Decan: There are months when it`s easier to get control of the budget than at other times. The opening days of November could find you in exactly that position. Yes, it may be necessary to say no to someone by the Full Moon on 4th. If you decide to go the other way however, and make an investment, you could surely do so on good terms. One way or another it seems likely you`ll astound others with your actions and obvious acumen. A week late, – around the Last Quarter Moon on 10th -attention may be drawn to a decision taken much earlier in the year. This could perhaps be traced back to February. It may be that you were more astute then than you thought. By 13th, others could be discussing just how well you`ve done and wondering if they too could get involved. By this stage Mercury will be moving over the base of your solar chart. Its transit this year is important in that it is extended given that Mercury turns retrograde in Sagittarius next month. This may well bring issues around house purchase, renovation or shared costs to the surface. Agreement could be reached by Tuesday 28th. Obtaining any estimates and double-checking facts would be a good use of your time from 22nd. If there are financial banana skins to be negotiated, these are most likely to appear before 22nd and be linked to a leak that proves elusive to resolve.

Finance: You probably won`t want to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday to do your holiday shopping; and with Venus in your second house of cash and credit until the 7th, finding the perfect gift for those who are special (including yourself) will come all too easy. However, Venus can sometimes make us go a little overboard (shopping without concern for the consequences), so be careful. With headstrong Mars in your second house of cash, it won`t be easy to limit spending in November. Take special note of the 19th when Mars squares explosive Pluto. You could find yourself faced with an unexpected expense or some other urgent matter may require your assistance whether cash or a signature. Make sure that the rules, obligations, and liabilities are discussed up front. Don`t feel rushed. If possible, putting this off until the 30th would be even better.

Libra
Personal theme: I balance!!
Air & cardinal sign: September 23 — October 22

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: For you, Libra, the month of November promises to be an exciting and fulfilling one – one that gives you a clearer sense of what you need to do and what you want to pursue than you`ve had for ages. In order to discuss this, however, we need to go back a year to September of 2016 when Jupiter moved into your sign. Jupiter is, of course, the planet of growth, development and good fortune and it takes about twelve years to go through the twelve signs – and thus spends a year in each sign.

During the period it`s been in Libra, from September 22nd of last year, until just last October, until October 10th – you`ve been presented with lots of ideas about what you could do, met interesting people, had unusual or often unexpected experiences – and you`ll have done exactly that, what Jupiter is about. You`ll have broadened your horizons. While you might have made a few changes in your life, this is far more about what you experience and discover, than about lasting changes.

However, with Jupiter having just have moved into the part of your chart that has to do with who and what is worth your while, in early October remaining there until November of next year and with the Sun just having met Jupiter there on October 26th, and, in fact, with your ruler Venus meeting Jupiter there in mid-November, on the 13th, this isn`t about existing plans – it`s about continuing to broaden your horizons in terms of what suits you, what you`d like to do, what you want more and what`s already part of your life – and the direction you`d like to go. It would appear that the planets are there to help you with this process of exploration.

It`s worth noting that the second of the pair of superb aspects between the practical Saturn and Uranus the planet of innovation takes place in early November, on the 11th. This link, the first of which was in May of this year, will also have been about discoveries of various sorts – and with these planets spanning the parts of your chart that have to do with your own perspective and viewpoint, and with links with others – in both personal and in business situations – what was discussed then, mid-year, and what`s discussed now, during the month of November, could be exciting and potentially rewarding. Here`s the trick and the thing to remember – it`s that as promising as things are, it may not be clear until December, or in fact until you move into the New Year, that these new arrangements will come together.

As Libra, you have an instinct for when it`s important to push and when you need to wait. However, with your ruler Venus forming a series of potent aspects during the month of November – with it, as previously mentioned, aspecting Jupiter and also with it aspecting the inventive Uranus and the mystical Neptune and at the end of the month forming a powerful alliance then, as December begins, moving into a new position, this isn`t about a single day or a single decision. The trick, therefore, is to steer clear of the need you have to get organised, to impose order on plans and to actually view what seems disarray as growth. It`s rather as if you were moving into a new home. You have to take apart the old one, and pack up, then unpack in the new place – and while that can be very untidy, it also is an exciting new start.

The other thing to keep in mind, and the message from the planets, is to do something which is difficult for you – and think of yourself first. While others will be influenced by the decisions you make, you need to be very clear about what you want to do; and the second thing to keep in mind – and the hint from the planets – is to realise that whatever you do or decide, at least, during the month of November, won`t be final, possibly until you move into the new year. This planetary shift influences the structure of your life. Be aware of that, and you`ll be ready, have the knowledge or be in a position to make those final decisions, and knowing that`s coming, for now you can relax and enjoy this remarkable month of discovery.

1st Decan: Let`s start your November 2017 Horoscope with a romantic Full Moon in Taurus on the 3rd. This illuminates your eighth house of personal relationships, private encounters, and jointly held possessions, and since you are the “relationship sign,” you`ll find it hard to resist the cosmic pull. If signs were cities Libra would be the Hollywood of the zodiac, and while you still have Venus, your planetary ruler, in your first house until the 7th, it`s likely to increase your attractiveness and magnetic appeal. All eyes will be on you, and you`re not one to disappoint. Actually, the real catalyst of all this cosmic action is aggressive Mars in your sign throughout the month of November. Mars will temporarily shelve your more classic and discretionary side and you`ll have no problem expressing yourself – sexually, verbally and in every other way, you could possibly imagine. You`ll be dressed to impress and show the world all you`ve got to offer which is plenty.

2nd Decan: There will be a market for your impeccable taste at the beginning of November. If someone asks you to plan an event, don`t do it for free. Your skills are valuable; charge accordingly. The Full Moon on the 4th brings an impressive windfall in the form of a work bonus, inheritance or legal settlement. Use this money to splash out on some new clothes, luxurious bed linens or fluffy towels. Anything aimed at making daily life more pleasant is more than a good idea; it`s a brilliant idea! An unusual partnership will open doors for you at the middle of the month. You`ll benefit from your partner`s contacts and vice-versa. There`s also a chance you`ll obey an impulse to exchange wedding vows in an offbeat setting. On the 18th, the New Moon brings a fantastic job offer. Being able to earn money while working from home will be the answer to a prayer. Keep your work and living areas strictly separate.

3rd Decan: As early as the Full Moon on Saturday 4th, it should be apparent that there has been a sea change in your financial affairs. It may be that what`s been stuck for some months now begins to move forward but perhaps not quite as you had expected. It`s also possible that a major purchase will be made ahead of that date. This could be travel related. Though you might understandably wonder if you`ve made a correct decision and worry over on 5th and 6th, by Saturday 11th you should feel more confident about that earlier choice. Conversations taking place on Monday 13th could be enriching in many ways. Clear plans could be made that not only save money but leave you feeling good in the process. Yet a financial banana skin might be lurking around Sunday 19th rendering it imperative that you discuss tax and pension savings matters as soon as possible thereafter. With the assistance of a financial adviser this matter could be resolved by Tuesday 28th. The close of the month should find you once again considering either renovation or some kind of property improvement. This too might be a wise move – though it would be as well to bear in mind that with interest rates likely to rise, that it`s important to check affordability.

Finance: Chances are you and your significant other will be quite busy with the arrival of the Full Moon in Taurus on the 3rd which spotlights your eighth house of other people`s money and joint possessions. Whether you`re fixing up the house or planning your financial future, there is a real feeling of teamwork and you agree on almost all points of where money should be directed. Also, you now have the planet of fortune and expansion, Jupiter, in your second house of cash-on-hand. Venus will join Jupiter there after November 7th, followed by the New Moon on the 18th. Despite Scorpio`s reputation for being secretive and/or combative, these are really fortunate planets that will show you that sometimes the Universe just wants you to do well and in this case, financially. If you are signing agreements or negotiating sales and/or purchases, try sticking to November 9th, 11th, 21st or 27th.

Scorpio & Ophiuchus
Personal theme: I desire!!
Water & fixed signs: October 23 — November 21

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: As you may already be aware if you`re into astrology, Scorpio, you`ve just began an exciting period – a period during which Jupiter, which is itself the planet of growth and development, is positioned in your sign. Jupiter moved into Scorpio on October 10th, and remains there for a little over a year, until November of 2018. Because Jupiter is indeed about growth and discovery, you`re in a period during which experiences, encounters and the new ideas you hear about will all enrich your life. However, it may be difficult for you, as a Scorpio, and somebody who is both thorough and cautious. This is mostly because some of what arises may seem odd, unappealing or even a nuisance and, consequently, something you certainly wouldn`t want to learn more about – and still less get involved in.

Yet because Jupiter is about growth and discovery, it`s essential that you at least explore everything that comes your way. This may seem difficult and, in fact, as you`re living out the days of the month of November, resolving to explore everything you encounter may seem strange and a waste of time. Yet, as you`ll soon discover, some of what seems least interesting will add something – a fact, an insight, some piece of knowledge to your awareness, and that will, in turn, enable you to make the best of new and often unexpected developments.

It`s not just new things that you`ll be dealing with. On November 11th, the practical Saturn forms a fabulous alliance with Uranus, the planet that`s all about innovation. This, which is the second of two this year – the first which was on May 19th – will take those you encountered then, earlier this year, to a new stage or introduce new ideas. Whatever the case, and this will influence several areas of your life, central to your thinking and experience will be exploring new ways to deal with existing arrangements – personal or out in the world – or new ideas, so new you`d have to think about doing things in a different way. Because of that, it could mean leaving familiar elements of the past behind you. However, this is all about discovery, as you`ll have already learned.

Certainly, with the ideas planet Mercury having met Jupiter, in your sign, during October, on the 18th, and with the Sun having met Jupiter on October 26th, as you begin the month of November, you`ll already have lots of intriguing ideas on your mind. The secret is to take it slowly, which is something that you, as a cautious and measured Scorpio, are good at. In fact, it may not be until the 18th of November, at the time of the Scorpio New Moon – which is very much about a fresh perspective – that you`ll have a clear sense of the way things are going and will be more confident about this process of discovery, and particularly about situations that draw you into unfamiliar territory, in terms of the people you know or even new experiences.

Those new experiences – experiences that will be highlighted by Saturn`s stunning alliance with Uranus on November 11th – are part of a pattern that will be accelerated and develop further as you move into December and especially late into the month and the new year. This is because Saturn, being the most practical planet of them all, moves into a new position, and to accent your own perspective on life, on the world around you and on what`s possible on December 20th. This potent shift by Saturn into a new position is very much about broadening your horizons, and will enable you to better understand the beneficial influence of Jupiter in your sign.

However, that`s not until December and, even more January, and the new year, which means that what you`ll want to focus on now, during the month of November, is something which is somewhat out of character – and that`s concentrate on looking and learning. Most of all, note that if you begin worrying about something or somebody, you can and deliberately shift your attention away from that. Ideally, in fact, you`re encouraged to do something which is out of character, and simply go with the flow.

Your hint is to rely on your intuition. You have a formidable one and often use it – but, bizarrely, just as often ignore it – at least until later, when you realise how right those feelings were. In this case, trust your intuition, especially when it encourages you to explore, to venture into unfamiliar areas. What you learn, what you do and what you experience will be rewarding now – and in the future.

1st Decan: You may want to put a little extra protein in your morning shake during the month of November. With Venus joining Jupiter in your house of personal appearance and how others see you, you`ll be attracting lots of attention. This goes for any Scorpio, single or attached, so be careful (wink). You also have the Full Moon in your seventh house of relationships, partnerships, and marriage on the 3rd and the New Moon on the 18th in your Sun sign, adding additional clout to your first house energy. Though every day in November has the potential to be a day when you could meet someone special, rekindle a romance or just revel in the attention, you may want to circle the 3rd, 7th, 13th, 18th and the 21st as days not to waste. Why deprive the world of your sexy Scorpio vibe? You may still want to spend some time on the couch, but the Universe is suggesting that you probably won`t be alone.

2nd Decan: Your star power will attract opportunities for love, adventure and fun in the beginning of November. Taking a risk will pay off nicely during this golden period. On the 4th, the Full Moon will prompt you to pay an affectionate tribute to someone special. Whisk your romantic partner off on vacation, give your best friend a gift certificate for a spa treatment or take a dreaded chore off a business associate`s plate. Towards the middle of the month, you`ll have an opportunity to share your expertise with an appreciative audience. Getting paid to pass on your expertise and experience will be a very satisfying experience. The New Moon on the 18th will encourage you to change your look in one way or another as you feel you need an image and style that reflects your ideas and ambitions. As the month draws to a close, serious financial talks and a long-term cash decision will improve your income.

3rd Decan: Whilst it might be suggested that with Jupiter now moving through your sign that you will attract luck and good fortune, it`s perhaps more accurate to say that your needs will increase and that this, combined with your natural financial acumen, will lead you into situations where yes, you attract the right bargains. That may be particularly true midmonth when Venus joins Jupiter in your sign on 13th. It might also be that the following weekend – and especially on Sunday 19th – when you`re two ruling planets Mars and Pluto arrive at their next phase, – that there is the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new development. Clear signals that your financial affairs are attracting positive attention should be apparent as early as the Full Moon on Saturday 4th. Indeed, you might even be asked by a close colleague or partner born under one of the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn to assist them with a major purchase. Your advice could prove invaluable. Positive investment and shopping days for you appear to be 9th, 11th, 13th and 21st. It would be wise to set aside some time on Monday 27th to check statements and agreed budgets. It`s just possible that an error has been made but which, when caught in time, proves inexpensive to put right.

Finance: Are you feeling lucky, Scorpio? Well, you should with the Sun and Mercury in your second house of cash and lucky and expansive Jupiter newly arrived in your Sun Sign. November may just be lucky for you and your wallet. This is a great month to go out and try your hand at speculative, short-term investments or even something as simple as playing the lottery. Good days to invest your time in either would be the 11th, 17th and the extra-magical 25th. The other reason to like November 11th would be the awesome trine between Saturn (also in your second house) and Uranus. This is the last trine like this in a series of three, and one of your best chances this year to turn a hobby or idea into a lucrative money-maker. Whether it`s part-time or full-time, the income should be a nice booster; and if you`re having enough fun and success, then turning it into a full-time venture is fully supported by the Universe.

Sagittarius
Personal theme: I see!!
Fire sign: November 22 — December 21

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: As you begin the month of November, Sagittarius, you`ll undoubtedly be aware of big changes in the air. In fact, if you pay close attention to astrology, you`ll also be aware of the move by your ruler, Jupiter, into a new position. Jupiter moves once a year, which makes this shift, familiar – if not routine; and for you, as a Sagittarius and somebody who thrives on what you learn from change, the shift in perspective this brings is welcome.

However, this particular move is important for two reasons. First, Jupiter itself entered the part of your chart that`s most reflective, most intuitive – and, in a way, into what might be termed, the `quietest` part of your chart, on October 10th. Then with both the ideas planet Mercury meeting Jupiter, in its new position, on October 18th, and the Sun just having met Jupiter on October 26th, as you begin the month of November, you`ll sense not just change in the air, but you`ll be aware that you`re making a change in your perspective on life.

As a Sagittarius and a fire sign, you`re one of the one of the most energetic and inquisitive of signs. Yet, at the same time you can sometimes get so wrapped up in what you`re doing, that you don`t pause to think about the outcome, how things will turn out. In fact, bizarrely, you sometimes don`t even pause to enjoy what you`re doing. During the month of November and, in fact, during the coming months, while your ruler Jupiter is in this most reflective part of your chart, you`ll find that you learn a lot about what there is to enjoy, either because you`re moving at a slower pace or you`ll recognise what it`s like to pause and be receptive and reflective – and in a way, again, that doesn`t come naturally to you, as a fire sign.

There`s a wonderful payoff for doing this, simply because certain of life`s pleasures and its joys are best appreciated in this quieter, more reflective mode, and this quieter way of doing things. This also prepares you for one of the most significant planetary events of the year, from your point of view, which actually takes place towards the end of this year, when on December 20th Saturn – which has been in your sign for nearly three years – departs and with that, a certain pressure you`ve been under will also come to an end. Saturn is all about focus and, often, pressure – and those born under the sign in which Saturn is positioned will feel that pressure. For you, that`s been about concentrating, and being firm, clear and practical – possibly in ways that haven`t come naturally to you, but also in ways that will have seemed strange. Yet, now that you`re looking back on this period, you`ll realise how much it contributed to your life.

In fact, if you think back to mid-May when, on the 19th, Saturn formed a fantastic aspect to Uranus, which is all about innovation, you`ll have a sense of what this variety of discipline that you`ve been facing can do, the results it can achieve and, equally, what you can learn. This is worth noting simply because with Saturn forming the same alliance with Uranus, this month, on November 11th, once again this will be about doing things in a very different way, about unexpected experiences and about the innovation that the planet Uranus brings to any situation. While you, as a Sagittarius, were born under what is perhaps one of the most inquisitive of the signs, you`re usually up to date on what`s going on. Still, even you could be surprised by what, or who, arrives in your life because of the influence of Uranus.

However, if you`re in a more reflective frame of mind, then as you move the days of the month of November, you`re more likely to catch these subtle yet exciting developments. The other thing you want to cultivate, the other characteristic that will be both important, and allow you to make the best of this period, is patience. Things probably won`t come together in the way you`d like during the month of November. This doesn`t mean you`re facing problems – it`s just that the picture won`t be clear, and probably won`t be until the time of the all-important Sagittarius New Moon, on December 18th. Knowing that, therefore, it`s important that you not try to make things fit or that you try to force plans, but that you adopt an uncharacteristically slow-moving and easy-going approach. This is indeed the message from the planets or you – there really is no rush.

And your hint? It`s to take a deep breath – literally but also, metaphorically. Do something meditative. Allow yourself to slow your pace because, in doing so, you`ll not only learn from the remarkable developments of the month of November, you`ll prepare for the dynamic, if not thrilling, changes that will be unfolding in your life, as you move into the month of December and into the New Year.

1st Decan: If you are already in a relationship or have recently become involved with someone, after the 7th, when Venus, the goddess of love, joins lucky Jupiter in Scorpio, aka your 12th house of secrets, karma and (ahem) solitude, you may find the two of you having a lot of “alone time.” If so, bring lots of water and a flare gun, so you can just let the rest of the world know you`re okay. On the 13th Venus and Jupiter form a powerfully potent conjunction that deepens feelings. The New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th is perfect for a weekend getaway, or if you`re single, getting something (new) started. In addition, Mercury conjuncts karmic Saturn in your Sun sign on the 27th. Together, these two planets will help you come to a decision of a permanent nature while also allowing you to feel confident about it. Declare your love to the world if you`re feeling it.

2nd Decan: Working as part of a team will be rewarding at the start of the month. You`ll enjoy entertaining the group at your home. Take this opportunity to host or plan a festive dinner; playing genial, generous host appeals to your natural generosity. The Full Moon on the 4th brings the successful conclusion to a demanding job. People will be so impressed with your work that you will be offered a chance to take on a more influential role. Choose the role that offer the most creative satisfaction. At the middle of the month, you`ll fall under the spell of a wild rebel. Let them introduce you to an unusual hobby, cuisine or travel destination. On the 18th, the New Moon will prompt you to spend more time on solitary pursuits. While everybody else is getting ramped up for Christmas, you`ll turn your attention inward. Exploring your spiritual needs will relieve stress and allow you to enjoy the true spirit of the holiday season.

3rd Decan: A key investment that`s been much discussed perhaps for the better part of the year could be made before Saturday`s Full Moon. True, for some (much depends on your actual birthday) it might be decided that this purchase is held over until the New Year. The following Monday, 6th, Mercury enters your sign for an extended stay. It doesn`t leave until the early part of next year. This is unusual. Mercury is the planet associated with commerce and yes, it`s likely that you will be far more involved with sales and purchase than at any time over the last 10 years. Valuations will surely be important. To take advantage of optimum prices for selling, you should perhaps place these on the open market before Monday 13th. Of course, much depends on your personal chart. It`s possible however that you might not realise as much gain if you leave a sale until the very last days of November. Investment opportunities could be much discussed from Tuesday 7th to 21st. Through this period, intense conversations as to how best to plan for the long-term might also result in you at least considering a property move. A meeting with a financial adviser, – most likely around Tuesday 28th could be illuminating, alert you to a possible cloud on the horizon and bring ideas of ways to avoid loss.

Finance: Circle November 11th in your November 2017 Monthly Money Horoscope when Saturn in your sign forms an easy connection to Uranus the rebel planet. This is a perfect recipe for things like changing careers or starting new ventures where you can use past experiences to cash in on future endeavours. Don`t waste time making costly mistakes. If you`re going to do something big, do it right. Get professional help if you need it. Chances like this don`t come around all that often. With Jupiter and other planets in your eleventh house, there`s a fortunate feeling around you this month and an indication that joint finances or partnerships will be a big part of your future. There`s also a lot of indication in your chart this month that getting advice from elders and professionals in most matters is advised and supported. Big decisions are a part of your November, starting with the Full Moon, and don`t be afraid to ask for help.

Capricorn
Personal theme: I use!!
Earth & cardinal sign: December 22 — January 19

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: For you, Capricorn, the month of November promises to be an interesting one, in an interesting cycle. If you`re aware of what`s going on in the havens, you`ll also be conscious of the fact that your ruler Saturn is about to move into a new position – something it does only about every two and a half to three years, which, therefore, makes it a very big deal.

Even more than that, you`re also benefiting from the shift by Jupiter, itself the planet of growth and development, into a new position, last month on October 10th; and with it accenting the part of your chart that has do with not only who and what you enjoy, but with new ideas and new people and new places, what you encounter and what you experience will be stimulating and thrilling – but will also begin call your attention to the new cycle that begins with your ruler Saturn`s move into a new position – and, in fact, into your sign on December 20th.

In order to understand this, and its influence, it`s worth going back to the middle of the year when, on May 19th your ruler Saturn formed an extremely powerful alliance with Uranus, which is itself all about innovation and the unexpected. This link between these two will have triggered events that were thrilling, if perhaps somewhat unsettling – especially for you, as a Capricorn, an earth sign, and somebody who prefers to stick with what you know and agree with. That is, you put a great deal of effort into understanding and making the best of your situation, from what you do in your life to the people who you`re close to, and are familiar with.

Yet, every once in a while, the world itself changes – events trigger changes, some welcome, others not so much. Whatever their nature, you will make a point of learning about these, and rethinking your approach to that area of life; and because this is a period of change, in the world around you and in your own life, what seems to be your best option now, as you live out the days of November, will necessarily need to change as well. Thus, that link between your ruler Saturn and Uranus on the 11th could be pivotal. While events may actually take place on that day, the odds are good this potent link between these two planets will do what might be termed `flavour` the events and your experiences during month of November, which means that new ideas, new encounters and possibly even surprise developments or offers, will all contribute to what you`ll be experiencing.

If it sounds like this is no time to try to organise a master plan or, equally, stick to existing plans, that`s absolutely true. In fact, if there`s anything that could be said to define the month of November and the latter days of the year, it`s the word `unpredictable`.

The other word that could best be used to define this period is `breakthroughs` – but those breakthroughs won`t always be recognisable as such; and, in fact, as a thorough Capricorn, you could worry, because clearly you`re not in control. Actually, because this is a period of change, and of undoing past arrangements – that is, with Saturn moving into your sign in December, and remaining there for a couple of years, you`ve begun a cycle that`s very much about leaving elements of the past behind.

In making those changes, you`re clearing the way for the new; and the more prepared you are for unexpected discoveries and to explore whatever it is that arises, the better off you`ll be. The more you`re willing to embrace what might be termed the `Saturn/Uranus philosophy`, indicated by the link between your ruler and that planet of innovation on the 11th, the better equipped you`ll be to take advantage of the remarkable, if often unsettling, events that unfold during the month of November, and as you move ahead into the future.

The message from the planets, therefore, is to have a sense of adventure, to have a new sense of yourself – of the person who is pursuing these ideas and what you`re discovering. Yes, this can mean that occasionally you`re disillusioned by elements of the past, which is timely, because in some cases they`ll have run their course; and, in others, it`s time for you to recognise that actually, you`re getting very little from them and it`s time to say goodbye.

And your hint? This may sound strange, since you`ve been encouraged to explore; but your hint is to be still, to relax. Relax as much as you can and, if possible, try to avoid that Capricorn pastime of thinking, organising and strategising what will happen, what`s next. Instead, take a deep breath and enjoy each day, each hour and every minute of your life for what it is, knowing that as these changes unfold, they will only add to your existence, although perhaps in ways you never would have imagined possible.

1st Decan: While most of November seems to be pointing towards your friendships, associations, and even work relationships, that doesn`t mean there`s nothing going on in the love sector. On the 13th Venus conjuncts lucky Jupiter in Scorpio, a water sign that blends well with your earthen roots. While these two planets speak your language of money and getting ahead, this setting could also add a little fun to your love life. Also, circle the 17th and the 18th as great romantic getaway days for you and your significant other. If you`re single, don`t waste the Saturday night energy of the New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th. Even though Scorpio is the sign most noted for its naughtiness, Capricorns know just as much about the fun and freaky side of life. With everything going on with work and friendships, you could use a little time to shift your focus to extra-curricular activities.

2nd Decan: Working behind the scenes will boost your professional reputation in the early days of November. On the 4th, the Full Moon will mark the end of an incredibly busy period, allowing you to take a long trip for pleasure. Visiting a destination that appeals to your spiritual side would be well worth thinking about. At the middle of the month, you`ll get some surprising news from a relative that sparks a string of celebrations. This is a great chance to come together in a spirit of harmony. The New Moon on 18th is ideal for attending a party. Your powerful charisma will attract admirers from far and wide. If you`re single, you may decide to steer a friendship into romantic waters at this time. You`ll have a showdown with a pushy person as the month draws to a close. If you decide to move on and find employment elsewhere, keep your job search a secret. Apply for work at hospitals, government agencies, and universities.

3rd Decan: The days leading into Saturday (4th) Full Moon could prove expensive. Though you may feel that purchases have been wise, nevertheless it may be necessary to review your savings position soon after. Plugging a leak and perhaps putting in place a new budget could be much discussed before Saturday 11th. Midmonth should bring interesting financial reward. It may be that something you quite overlooked realises a value you`d never assumed possible. Before the Sun leaves the networking area of your solar chart on Tuesday 21st, cooperative financial arrangements could also be much discussed. Insurance matters seem likely to feature hugely. In fact, over the weekend of 18th 19th, it might be prudent to check that cover is adequate. The last week of the month could find you more than a little interested in general investments. In comparing prices – particularly of utilities, – you may find a better deal, but one which is only on offer until the end of the month. Before taking that action, rigorous research would no doubt be required. Here you could be aided and abetted by someone born under one of the Water signs of Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces who is happy to carry out that work on your behalf.

Finance: Your eleventh house of dreams and wishes gets a huge boost when two beneficent planets join forces on the 13th. Venus and Jupiter are a power couple and you, of all the signs, speak their language. Let`s not forget the help of your ruling planet Saturn in your house of hidden desires making you more determined than ever. Take some money out of the mattress and invest it in something you`re passionate about. November is the month to use that powerful intuition and business savvy (the very core of a Venus/Jupiter conjunction) to help your inner goat climb the hill to success. You may have been thinking about expanding your social and professional circles lately and after the 19th, you`ll see evidence that your life is taking on a new direction. It`s in perfect timing with Venus and Jupiter leading the way. However, as financial stability is the name of your game, you`ve never been a bridge burner, so make sure you have a new plan in place before jumping an old ship.

Aquarius
Personal theme: I know!!
Air & fixed sign: January 20 — February 18

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: If there`s a single theme for you, for the month of November, Aquarius, it`s the rare and potent alliance between Saturn, the most practical planet of them all, and your ruler Uranus. This was first formed earlier this year – in May, on the 19th – and at that time, either circumstances will have made it clear that there are new ideas and opportunities in the air or, quite possibly, you as an Aquarius and somebody who`s always coming up with good ideas, will have devised those yourself. Certainly, with these planets spanning the parts of your chart that have to do with your own perspective on things and the ideas you love to explore and, equally, with new pursuits and intriguing developments involving others, there would have been talk, there may have been arrangements made – and you may even have got involved with something very exciting.

This alliance between Saturn and your ruler Uranus occurs again on November 11th, just a month before Saturn itself moves on to a new position, which signifies both that what arose in in May, what you talked about, explored or decided then, will either reach another stage or there`ll be yet another round of exciting developments.

Not only that, with a number of the heavenly bodies actually forming potent alliances with your ruler Uranus, with the Sun having aspected Uranus on October 19th and with Venus, the planet that has to do with both close alliances and money, aspecting Uranus as you begin the month, on November 4th, then Mercury, the ideas planet, forming an equally and powerful aspect to Uranus, later in the month on the 25th, this isn`t about a single day, a single discussion or single idea. It`s actually about a series of ideas, many of which will spin off from the events triggered by that link between Saturn and Uranus on November 11th. Once you understand that, and tempting as it is to try to come up with a single plan, you`ll view this as what might be termed `a plan in transition`, or you`ll see events as flowing along and each day`s developments bringing something new.

If there`s any challenge it will be your tendency to think that because things are organised, they should stay that way. Alternatively, you may think that if you embrace changes, they`ll need to fit in with existing arrangements. This could be very much the case early in the month, when the Full Moon, on Saturday the 4th, brings both feelings and circumstances to a head. Of course, because the Full Moon influences everybody, it may well be that others are pressing you to come up with a plan. If so, in both cases you`ll need to take a deep breath and recognise that this is very much a period of growth. In fact, by the time of the New Moon, with its fresh perspective, two weeks later on November 18th, you`ll begin to sense that this isn`t about trying to figure things out but about, first, enjoying the fact that there are intriguing new developments coming your way and, second, recognising that because this is about a series of developments, not a single day or single week – it is, rather, about new ideas.

Ideally, you won`t even try to come up with a single lasting arrangement, but will instead think in terms of organising things as they arise, and responding to developments when they appear. That is, in fact, the message from the planets. It`s that with so much change in your own life and in the world around you, and with Saturn itself – which has been the key to these powerful aspects – moving into a new position in late December, what seems your best option now is bound to change. The trick is therefore to organise things in such a way that they, too, can change.

The hint from the planets, for you – and in fact for every sign, during this exciting period is to go with the flow. As a clever Aquarius, you`re used to and good at figuring things out; but this is one of those periods that isn`t about figuring things out, but rather about focusing on what you can discover, and the exciting events coming your way that will continue to unfold as you live out the days of the month of November and December, and as you move into the new year.

1st Decan: For those of you who are married or living with someone, the romantic Full Moon in Taurus on the 3rd could go either way. If you and your significant other are doing well, then let the romance ensue. Taurus is a gift giver, so don`t forget the flowers. However, if you`ve been on shaky ground lately, this Full Moon could stir up some serious emotions and one if not both of you may be bull-headed about getting your way. If things have been tough lately, this should come as no surprise to you, and it seems that you`ve prepared yourself for any sudden changes that might come up. If things need to be worked on in a relationship, circle the 11th when Saturn trines Uranus in Aries, your house of communications. This trine has a happy vibe, but once it`s passed it`s done, and whatever you initiate on this day will have a lasting and stabilizing effect on your relationship. Singles, November may seem somewhat uneventful, but no worries, next month gets better.

2nd Decan: A moneymaking opportunity that is both financially and spiritually rewarding will arrive at the start of the month. You are proof that one can earn a living from making the world a better place. The Full Moon on the 4th brings your attention to the home front. Throw a party for a relative who is celebrating a birthday, anniversary or even an academic achievement. Exciting news could arrive via a social media site at the middle of the month. You`ll be relieved and delighted by a friend`s bill of clean health. On the 18th, the New Moon will bring an impressive career opportunity. Working for a dynamic go-getter will be a good use of your organisational skills. You`ll enjoy the challenge of sharing their hectic schedule. As November turns to December, you will reap the benefits of a club membership. Don`t forget to pay your dues or you will be left out in the cold.

3rd Decan: Extra-ordinary planetary attention across the very backbone of your solar chart suggests that before the Full Moon on 4th, you will have made a major purchase. This could either take the form of a large piece of furniture, property, or perhaps investment in your career. In whatever way, this is perhaps something that is not often done in a lifetime. It would be understandable if you then spent the next few days justifying that expense both to yourself and to others. By 11th however, when your two-ruling planet Saturn and Uranus, are in one of their better aspects, it should be apparent that your financial acumen has not let you down. Tempting as it may be to feel you`re on a roll and then make a further purchase that would perhaps not be wise. There is the danger of overspending – especially over 13th and 14th. Mercury spends an extra ordinary amount of time in Sagittarius this year. This accents the friendship area of your solar chart. It may be that you`re tempted to join several groups but that the costs of doing this are great. Being selective in choosing those investments wisely is perhaps best done between Friday 24th and Wednesday 29th and even then, carefully discussing options – most likely with a Pisces.

Finance: The Full Moon in Taurus on the 3rd centres on your home life. You could have unexpected household happenings that will cost you a bit of change. Like your neighbour, Capricorn, you will benefit from the Venus/Jupiter conjunction on the 13th. These two money-minded, gifting planets are settled in your career house, making November the perfect month to go for that raise, promotion or even the new job you`ve been looking for. Make sure you`re seen and heard by the right people to help your cause. Neptune in your second house of cash and credit will go direct again on the 22nd. Neptune turned retrograde in June in dreamy, woozy Pisces, so you may not have fully understood why some projects or aspirations wouldn`t move forward. Now they will. Now that the fog is finally lifting, you`ll do better financially overall and you`ll start to feel like the old you, coming up with tons of innovative ways to make money as we enter the new year ahead.

Pisces
Personal theme: I believe!!
Water sign: February 19 — March 20

Your horoscope for this month:

Epigram: Once you understand the nature of the month of November Pisces, the events that are taking place will make sense. However, if you don`t have what might be termed an astrological handle on the events, you could find yourself wondering what`s going on or even be concerned in some way – but the fact is there`s really nothing to worry about. It`s just that you, along with every sign, are experiencing the influence of the powerful realignment of the planets that`s been taking place over the past weeks and will continue to unfold.

Last month, on October 10th, Jupiter which is all about growth and development, moved into a new position, and into the part of your chart that has to do with the structure of your life. This indicates exciting changes – Jupiter is indeed about growth, development and opportunity, some of which may come from out of the blue. Not only that, with both Mercury and the Sun having met Jupiter, in its new position, in late October, as you begin the month of November, you`ll find yourself having all sorts of options to consider. This may be tricky, because some of what has arisen may be very different from what you had in mind, and you`ll find that you`re juggling these, and may even feel a sense of conflict about what`s best.

If you add the influence of the potent alliance between the practical Saturn and Uranus, on the 11th of November – which itself links to the alliance formed earlier in the year between these two planets, on May 19th, and suggests developments that will be as disruptive as they are exciting, you could be worrying, wondering or scratching your head trying to figure out what to do. The answer? It`s to respond to events swiftly, and to make plans – but to ensure that those plans are flexible enough that, as yet more developments unfold, you don`t need to rethink everything.

As a Pisces, you`re very through and can be a bit of a perfectionist; but you`re also a visionary, and you try combine all of what`s arisen into one plan. Often that will take a lot of work and a lot of effort and, indeed, a lot of that Piscean vision that is your specialty. So, once you`ve made a plan, you try to stick to it.

If, instead, you understand that this is a period, during which the shifting planetary set up indicates that you`ll be dealing with changes in the actual foundation on which your plans are based, then instead of trying to make sure everything is just so, you`ll be uncharacteristically easy-going about those plans. In fact, the message from the planets is exactly that. It to take a deep breath and back off from those dramas. It`s about allowing yourself to rethink your existing objectives and, equally, it`s about giving yourself time to reconsider your ideals.

This will be very much on your mind during November`s first half, when on the 3rd the Sun from the superb alliance with your ruler Neptune, and on the 16th, when Venus, the planet that has to do with both money and relationships, forms an equally superb alliance with Neptune. This indicates not merely a single idea or a single change, but that you`ll have good reason to back off, to get some distance so you can look at things from an entirely different perspective. If you can manage to do that then, as you live out the days of the month of November, you`ll take advantage of the changes are going on. Instead of trying to create stability, by ensuring things remain as they are, you`ll be more flexible and be willing to consider changes that quite possibly, you`d have rejected only a short while ago.

The hint from the planets is to get away – to get away from yourself and to get away from these thoughts. This is about doing something that allows you to have a bit of a break from all of those dramas, minor and major, and all these changes. You could just take a walk, go out to see a movie at the cinema or possibly spend doing that one, special thing that makes you feel relaxed. Whatever you do, know that in taking the planets` hint, and getting away from things, when you return to this rather exciting, if unsettling, period you`ll do so with new enthusiasm and a new vigour.

1st Decan: Your November 2017 Horoscope speaks the language of deep emotion. With Venus, Jupiter, and the New Moon all in your fellow water sign of Scorpio (a sign that greatly influences you), you can`t help but be in touch with all the sexy and romantic vibes. You take all of your relationships seriously, but in a romantic sense, you`re about to go see just how deep emotions, like oceans, can be. If you`re single and dating, your relationship will grow closer. If you`re in a committed relationship it`s possible that you`ll experience a bonding beyond your imagination; and for those of you who are single and looking, though this kind of energy seems intense, it would be a great time to show someone interesting what a sensitive creature you can be. Circle the 13th when Venus and Jupiter conjunct in Scorpio as well as the 18th`s New Moon in Scorpio as your most intense days.

2nd Decan: Your idealism will be rewarded in the opening days of November. Don`t compromise your principles when it comes to art, romance and the finer things of life. By holding out for the best, you will get precisely that. On the 4th, you`ll get positive feedback on a creative project. You might even find that word of your skills is all set to reach a much wider audience. You`ll be paid handsomely for your unique abilities at the middle of the month. Take this opportunity to apply for a promotion or launch your own business. The New Moon on the 18th will find an intimate relationship taking a torrid turn. Enjoy a rendezvous with someone who makes your pulse pound. As December approaches, your intuition will grow stronger and stronger. Trust your instincts when searching for the perfect gifts. You`ll find exquisite items for friends, relatives and colleagues by closing your eyes and reflecting on the recipient`s best qualities. A professional presentation will go very well at the end of the month.

3rd Decan: You surely won`t be the only sign to make a major decision by Friday 3rd – and one which has financial implications. It may be of course that this decision is thrust upon you. Even so, it would be understandable if it took a couple of days to recover and to process the deep emotions this will surely have stirred. As of Monday, 6th, Mercury, the planet of commerce, arrives at the very apex of your solar chart – and for an extended stay. The implications of this are greater involvement in buying and selling between now and the early part of 2018. In particular, you could consider making another large investment mid-November. Obviously, checking prices would be wise. Shrewd purchases could be made over the weekend of Saturday 18th and 19th. Indeed, as early as Tuesday 21st, others may be remarking on your astuteness. If you do feel financial pressure, and yes this may be related to rising interest rates, that could come as early as Tuesday 28th. That`s set to be a key date for all signs but, in your case could bring with it a feeling of financial restriction. Discussing how best to negotiate new terms could perhaps best be done on Thursday 30th and with the assistance of an expert.

Finance: Saturn is now spending its final full month in the sign of Sagittarius, aka your tenth house of careers. In addition, you`ve got savvy Mercury in the same house as of the 5th and the power of the Sun after the 21st. What does it all mean for you? Well getting ahead of your projects, timelines, and even getting new clients will take hard work and determination, but the payoff is huge for those who stay the course. Sagittarius is a jovial, happy sign, so even though there`ll be lots of work to do that will keep you busy, it seems that the time spent doing it will be enjoyable for the most part. Saturn will join with Mercury on the 27th in a serious conjunction that promises that partnerships and agreements struck now will be long-lasting. They also come together to remind you that you are the expert, so speak with authority on things you`re in charge of.

About The Morning Feast and Goddessschool.com – The teachings here are based
on ordinary magick, the principle that the mundane and the Divine are not
separate, but peacefully coexist in all things. Know Mother Earth as the
ultimate healer, and learn to utilize her gifts of nature. Inside each woman
is a being of wisdom, deeply connected to the phases of the moon and the
tides of the sea. All we need to do is trust our innate wisdom.
