Aries (March 21-April 19)
Through actions and words, your early caregivers passed down codes of ethics. Also, you inherited cultural norms and societal mores. When you became an adult, these layers of rules in your subconscious mind formed a web of beliefs and expectations that have structured your life. Ask yourself: Are those internalized rules still working for me? If your answer is no, perhaps it's time to draft your personal constitution and bill of rights. In doing so, question every ideal with which you were raised and then structure your life according to your truth. The new moon on November 7 invites you to revisit financial decisions you made back in February. Do not act on impulse or out of fear, but remain open to suggestions from more knowledgeable people.You could even discover ways to build a bigger nest egg, especially if you are starting a new chapter. Your ruling planet enters mystical Pisces on November 15, inviting you to relax more and fight less. Take deep breaths to reduce anxiety. The following day, Mercury stations retrograde. Forgiveness can help restore balance in a challenged relationship, and it may be the key to inner peace throughout the month. After November 22, restlessness sparks your curiosity. What do you want to learn or experience? Take a step beyond your comfort zone and open yourself to a new adventure. For some, this message applies to your love life. Creative potential flows through open spaces (like your heart and mind) and enlivens possibilities in your life.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
A gentle tug of your heartstrings may send you back in time to revisit the past or understand a relationship dynamic that no longer serves you. On November 16, you will have mastered the lessons as Venus stations direct, finishing a 40-day cycle. You have seen through the eyes of compassion, and maybe given someone a second chance as a result. Now, you get to be more discerning. So, in all matters of the heart, step back and center yourself. If your energy has been all output and not enough intake, know first and foremost: You deserve an abundance of love and goodness. Open your heart to receive. Though this isn’t the most favorable month to embark on a wild adventure or start a new chapter in life, it is a favorable time for taking careful steps forward, especially with financial and professional matters. Identify your priorities and review your budget. Does your spending match your values and goals? If not, make calculated changes. The full moon on November 22 highlights news about investments, shared resources, and taxes. From November 16 through the end of the month, the more powerful and confident you feel, the more abundance you will allow into your life. The new moon in Scorpio on November 7 could help solidify a partnership, especially if you have been unsure about the current level of commitment. Ask for clarity, but be clear about your desires first. If your head and heart conflict, lean into your heart for guidance.
Gemini (May 20-June 20)
On November 8, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, enters Sagittarius and shines light in your sector of relationships, opening you to new adventures in love or helping you solidify business partnerships. Jupiter asks you to follow your heart and have the courage to move toward with what excites you. During the first few weeks of this thirteen-month transit, assess your romantic situation. Have you grown complacent or are you afraid of committing? If, after soul-searching, you crave a different experience of love, you might be ready for a heart expansion. Lasting change in any relationship starts with you. For Jupiter’s beneficence to work for you, show up for and be true to yourself. In business, life could surprise you, as alliances and circumstances come full circle, especially around the time of the new moon on November 7. You are on the move after November 15, and your creative insights can inspire customers, clients, or team members. The following day, Mercury stations retrograde, giving you a chance to reassess opportunities. Stay focused on your goals. Any perceived setbacks can lead to a change of course. Stay positive and driven. After November 6, a nodal shift could help you face limiting beliefs about money and material resources. Until May 2020, you can gain awareness about your values and priorities and may become involved in philanthropic work as a result. On November 22, the full moon in your sign invites you to be bold in sharing your talents, words, and ideas with others in a more public way.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The sign of Cancer embodies the archetype of the mother. Your nature is giving and supportive, and you express these qualities whether you are managing a team, being a friend, or leading a household. With such a generous nature, your needs may rank low on the list of priorities. This month, that pattern changes. So, think of parenting yourself as you would nurture a creative project, business, or child. November starts an eighteen-month nodal cycle in your sign and invites you to change the way you relate with those closest to you. Specifically, you could feel a conflict between growing needs to express your individuality and your desire to please others. Start to tip the scales by stating preferences and making time for yourself. The new moon on November 7 in your sector of children and creativity could mean favorable news if you have been trying to start a family or launch a passion project. Professionally, you could revisit plans and prospective partnerships from February that may have fizzled throughout the fall. Those associations can now come full circle. November 5 is especially romantic. Plan time to relax with your partner early in the month. With Venus still retrograde until November 16, go with the flow in all matters of the heart and hearth. If your home life feels temporarily chaotic due to renovations or changes, maintain inner peace by knowing this phase will pass. Have faith in the unfolding process and enjoy the creative collaborations you are forming at this time.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
These are days to remember. You have reached a turning point in life, and new energy emerges within you in the form of an idea or awakening desire. Now, with a more profound sense of purpose, you could be ready to take a risk. An eighteen-month nodal axis cycle advanced your goals and sped up time in a way that probably felt unsettling. In the process though, you have faced and overcome fears. You are ready for a new beginning, but it will require trust in your intuition and the ability to see hidden truth and talents. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck, moves into your sector of romance and creative expression on November 8. For the next thirteen months, Jupiter will expand possibilities in this area of your life. You could receive a burst of inspiration, especially after November 22, when the Sun joins Jupiter in that area of your chart. If you have been thinking about starting a family, this would be a fortuitous time. Likewise, you could decide to learn a new hobby or develop a talent. The full moon on November 22 highlights your social life. You could gain clarity about a confusing situation with a friend. As a Leo, you have mastered loyalty to others. Now, you are being asked to be true to yourself by focusing on your dreams and creative projects. After all, this is a highly prolific period in your life, and when you follow your inspiration, you could realize greater success.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
An oak tree’s ability to grow depends on the conditions supporting the root system. The oak’s roots dig deep first, burrowing down into the soil, and then as the tree grows, a separate root system branches out wide to catch water. Consider this metaphor throughout the month, and think of how you might support the underpinnings of your personal or professional growth. Your early childhood experience either supported or challenged your growth. As an adult, you get to shape your own. On November 22, you can decide to reach beyond your inner circle or root deeper into the existing framework of your life. On November 8, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, moves into your sector of home and family. Its influence could help you finalize a real estate deal or make a move. Before signing any contracts, pause to review the fine print. Mercury stations retrograde on November 16, and you could miss something important if you rush a decision or transaction. In matters of the heart, you may decide to try a different approach to relationships, especially at the beginning of the month. If you are in a relationship, this could mean entering a new chapter together. Think of making small changes in your home or adjusting your everyday routine as a start. These could lead to big shifts in your overall dynamic. If you are single, exercise your independence. After November 15, with Mars’ influence in your relationship sector, you could have a whole new appreciation for your freedom.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Psychological fear can manifest as a sly, subtle voice in the back of your mind suggesting you take the path of least resistance, procrastinate, or worry. Fear wants you to keep the status quo. However, you are in a period of expansion, when you need to be bold, brave, and vocal. The fear of conflict or disappointing others can no longer hold you back. On November 6, the nodal axis starts to shift into your sector of career ambition, where it will transit for the next 18 months. Set intentions and create an action plan for how you can advance professional pursuits. Dream big, and you will have the mental acuity to write, speak, pitch, or promote yourself in effective ways throughout the next year. The new moon on November 7 draws you inward to do some soul-searching about finances. If you have been generous to a fault, pull back for a while and prioritize your goals. Venus stations direct on November 16, helping to boost your confidence. You could feel back on track after financial or relationship challenges. Your relationship status may fluctuate throughout the month, especially if you are single. If you are involved in a relationship, communicate clearly and honestly. Be open to change, whether you are single or involved. With confidence in your ability to make wise choices and courage to take action, you can navigate twists and turns. For some of you, these changes might involve deepening a commitment or saying “I do.” If so, congratulations! You have triumphed over fear.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Happy birthday! With the sun in your sign until November 22, you radiate pure potential, which means you can create change in your life. Your financial circumstances could shift this month as Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, moves into Sagittarius. For the past thirteen months, it has been transiting through your sign, and any successes you have achieved will have staying power. On November 22, find ways to restructure your attitudes and beliefs about money. You can overcome financial fears by honing your power. No matter what is happening in the collective, you are the author of your own destiny. The new moon in your sign on November 7 invites you to take center stage. This is a favorable time to promote yourself in new ways. Mercury, the planet of communication, stations retrograde on November 16 and will appear to move backward until December 7. Holiday travel plans could change at the last minute, or you could encounter delays as a result of technical glitches or miscommunication. Relax through it all. Mercury could be offering you the chance to let go and take life a little less seriously. The same message applies to your love life. Settle any lingering issues from the past so you can develop more trust in your relationships. If single, you may have toyed with the idea of reconnecting with an ex. Toward the end of November, you will have more clarity about these matters. In the meantime, trust your heart and quiet your mind.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
The planet Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, symbolizes expansion and opportunity and on November 8, it enters your sign to start a dynamic thirteen-month cycle. Its influence invites you to dream big, let go of fear, and follow your heart’s desires. If you have done the mental, spiritual, and emotional work to bring yourself into alignment, you can manifest intentions. After November 22, the sun moves into your sign and aligns with Jupiter on November 25, your lucky day. Follow the path that sparks joy and enthusiasm. This is no time for complacency or playing small. The full moon on November 22 shines a spotlight on your love life. Are you satisfied with your relationship status? If not, you could have a sudden realization about how to make a change. If you are single, you could reconnect with someone from your past early in the month. Perhaps a friend could come back into your life and ask for a deeper connection. Trust your intuition to recognize patterns of inconsistency right away. If you are involved in a relationship, you may need to balance your needs for independence with your partner’s needs for connection, especially after November 15. You are energized to make changes in life, which could inspire a decision to move. Rest assured, when you follow your internal guidance, paying attention to signs and symbols that appear in your life, you will open yourself to miracles. Allow goodness to flow into your life by relaxing anxious thoughts and letting love dissolve fear.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Your ruling planet Saturn is like the risk manager of our solar system. Its influence can help you assess risks and stay safe, but protection can sometimes feel like control. Your Saturn lesson, therefore, is to balance optimism with discernment and caution. This month, no matter what you read or hear, take careful steps forward in life, without either acting on impulse or stagnating. November 8 starts a year-long cycle for heightening your mystical sensibilities. You might attend a spiritual or self-help workshop. Also, your dreams could have more meaning. Pay attention to the clues they are offering you. The new moon on November 7 invites you to connect with like-minded people to build community. Leading up to that point, you could feel more driven to share your leadership gifts or become more public in expressing your thoughts. Choose your words carefully, as you could have a larger audience and platform in the coming months. If your relationships have felt more complicated than usual, relax and trust as we come out of a Venus retrograde cycle on November 16. Up to that time, you may need to review past relationship decisions, confronting any unresolved issues with exes, or carefully examine how you communicate in your current relationship, especially about financial matters. If you are single, this self-inquiry could lead to the breakthrough you need to open yourself to love. If you are in a committed partnership, you may consider finding ways to relax and enjoy time together at the end of the month.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Never underestimate the power of your imagination. Einstein said, "Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions." This month, allow your imagination to expand your notion of what’s possible. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, moves into Sagittarius on November 8 and will shine on your social life, inspiring you to lead a group or connect with others. At the beginning of the month, the sun brightens your sector of career recognition. The new moon on November 7 could draw you inward to reflect on next steps. The past year has offered opportunities for professional development. You may now see the divine gifts in any seeming setback. If you have a chance to accept a greater leadership role, push beyond fear and step into the spotlight. By November 22, you can reach a larger audience with your work. On November 6, we close an eighteen-month lunar node cycle during which you had to balance independence with interdependence. As a result, you learned lessons in expressing emotions and setting boundaries. If you have started a new relationship or made a deeper commitment during that time, you can settle in and feel more secure. If you recently ended a relationship or have been single, you have the gift of freedom right now, even though it may seem unfair at times. Exercise your independence as if this was the home stretch of your single life. Embrace where you are to call the unfolding divine plan into being.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
When you are focused on an intention or working to achieve a goal, faith can keep you in a positive flow. Yet, it can be difficult to manufacture faith without physical proof. In that case, believe in your process rather than a fixed outcome, trusting your wisdom and inner guidance. With that kind of faith, your journey will lead to a remarkable destination. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, enters your career sector on November 8, signaling the start of a year-long cycle of professional growth and recognition. If you have been working to complete a project or launch a business, Jupiter’s influence could help you attract the right kind of attention. Helpful people could open doors, especially around the full moon on November 22. With Venus retrograde until November 16 and Mercury retrograde after that, you may reflect on past financial, professional, or relationship decisions. This is a time for reviewing and rethinking, but don’t accept fear’s invitation to linger in regret. Self-forgiveness could be a helpful theme for you. The full moon on November 22 highlights home and family. You and your partner could discuss plans to make changes in your living space. If you are single, you might look for ways to create space in your home (and life) for a romantic partner. For example, is your bedroom filled with photos and items from previous relationships? If so, perhaps you could let some of those things go to release the past and let the universe know you’re available for a fresh start.
