CANCER

It’s all about your daily routines this month, Cancer. What do you do to start your day? Some stretching? Green juice? Popping a probiotic? It’s said by the experts that the way we start the day is the way we continue it. However we all know how easy it is to get up and start scrolling on our phones while downing a coffee. See if there is anything you could introduce into your morning routines which would do you good. Ditto when it comes to your evening routines. You could be amazed at the changes this makes to the rest of your life.

Power date: November 21 – good for love (familial, romantic and otherwise) and money.

CRACK A FUNNY / MERCURY INTO SAGITTARIUS

To kick off the start of the silly season, we get the move of mind planet Mercury into the comedy sign of Sagittarius. This happens at least once a year and usually something around this time of the year.

Essentially, it really is part and parcel (see what I did there?) of the Christmas period which at best is about peace on earth and goodwill to all women and men.

Mercury is the way we talk and express ourselves and Sagittarius is the sign that likes to laugh.

After another year of serious ups and downs on the world scene, moving towards the end of 2017 with Mercury in crack-a-funny Sadge is a pretty good antidote.

It should also be noted that Sagittarius is also the planet of hot air that likes to preach! So if you find yourself at a pre-Christmas party corned by a long-winded bore who won’t let you get away, you can also thank Mercury on Sadge for that.

Plus Mercury in Sagittarius is very generous, another wonderful combo for this time of the year. And it’s optimistic and expects the best.

Hopefully as you start to reflect on the year that has been, you will see your glass as at least half full.

As Mercury goes around the skies and the chart, moving through the 12 signs of the zodiac, he triggers different parts of everyone’s chart.

Mercury is how we talk, think, communicate and it’s about what’s on our mind. Here is what Mercury in Sagittarius this month means for you:

There are times for going out dancing all night, putting lampshades on one’s head and generally doing what old timers called “tying one on”. And there are times to get your house (and life) in order. Guess whch cycle you’re in now? Put it this way – let’s hope you’ve had a fun last month or so because Mercury’s move now into your 6th House of Daily Work and Health means you can expect to party less and work more over the next few weeks. The good news is that if you’ve been letting things slide a little – perhaps you’ve been having too much fun, perhaps a romance or a child has been taking up too much of your time – if you’ve been letting things slide, you can now expect to find the time and headspace you need to get back to attending to the tiny details of life. Clear your desk! This is also a great time to be making a 6 or even 12 month plan, if that’s your thing. Certainly your ability to schedule is high, so don’t waste it, if you know you need to live a life that’s slightly less chaotic. Break it down – what do you need to do, what do you want to do, and when can you feasibly do it?

VENUS INTO SCORPIO

The next standout astro-event of November has to be the move of the planet of romance and riches, Venus, into the mysterious sign of Scorpio. Again, this is about a once a year event, but even though Sagittarius and Scorpio are neighbouring signs, it has a totally different feeling to the Mercury in Sagittarius manoeuvre.

As such, the move of Venus into Scorpio alongside the move of Mercury into Sadge means we are going to get some light and shade.

While Mercury in Sadge is playful and fun, plus a little adventurous, Venus in Scorpio is deep and dark and perhaps even a little twisted.

Remember, Venus is the planet of love and really relating, while Scorpio is arguably the most profound sign of the zodiac; also the most obsessive and compulsive. Venus in Scorpio love truly, madly, deeply with lashings of passion and perhaps even a hint of paranoia thrown in.

It’s about at this point in any writing or speaking I do that I like to remind everyone that we all have Scorpio in our charts somewhere, that’s just the way astrology works. We all have all 12 signs in our charts. Here is a quick rundown of where Venus is for each sign this month, what she is affecting – you will find some extra information just for you, as well:

Aries – when it comes to your sex life and finances.
Taurus – your love life, plain and simple.
Gemini – in your daily life

Cancer – regarding your kids, your romantic life and your creative projects
Fun-loving Venus will be moving through your fifth house of fun. And if you think that sounds like a good double whammy, you’re right. There nothing that the planet of pleasure, Venus, likes more than enjoying herself. And as she goes through your House Of Fun, having a good time is her Number 1 Mission. And it can be yours, too. Live a little, as they say! If you needed some kind of excuse to stop worrying and start indulging, you have it; Venus in this part of your chart means you are almost duty-bound to work less and to spoil and amuse yourself more. This Venus cycle is also good news for singles looking to meet someone, because your fifth house rules romance – of the light-hearted variety. Certainly, if there were ever a time to get out there and shimmy your shui, this is that time. Couples don’t miss out, either. If you don’t find some of the old romance seeping back into your relationship over the next four weeks, it might be time to start talking to each other about your romantic expectations. Romance each other. This transit is also excellent for anyone with issues connected to children (your own or someone else’s). Any child-related issues should be more easily negotiated and resolved. Good news really is possible. Ditto if you are working on an artistic or creative project. Your ability should be extra high – now all you need to do is discipline yourself to harness your extra creative ability!

Leo – at home and with family
Virgo – when it comes to how you communicate with others
Libra – financially and also when it comes to your self-worth
Scorpio – your whole life!
Sagittarius – when it comes to your love secrets and your fears
Capricorn – when it comes to your friends and social networks
Aquarius – in our career and regarding your ambitions
Pisces – anything to do with travel, adventure, study and teaching

That’s the overview for Venus this month – but now let’s get down to some specifics.

Overall the Venus action this month is very positive and this should make a lot of people very happy. About 99% of the email I get from readers of my site Moonology.com write to about love or money issues. Venus covers both of those parts of life. So when Venus is happy, we mere mortals are happier too.

HERE ARE THE BIG VENUS DATES FOR YOUR NOVEMBER DIARY:

Friday November 3 – Venus sextiles Saturn – good for promises and stability when it comes to love and money, and deals and agreements of all kinds, contracts including marriage contracts.

Saturday November 4 – after yesterday’s stability, today’s Venus energies are quite chaotic, there could be some radical turnarounds, but not if your love/money situation is firmly grounded

Tuesday November 7 – Venus moves into Scorpio

Monday November 13 – Venus meets Jupiter for their once-a-year love-in. Makes today (and last night) one of the most promising times for romance and riches all year…

Thursday November 16 – Venus connects harmoniously with Neptune – this is a super romantic vibe and makes tonight ideal for a date night. People are wearing rose coloured glasses.

Tuesday November 21 – Venus connects harmoniously with passionate Pluto – this is the stuff that mad crushes and passionate love affairs are made of. Great for singles and couples.

Sunday 26 November – Venus/Chiron – if there have been any upsets to do with love or money, this link can help to start the healing process, including of wounds that left their mark years ago

Then we get some of the big astrological guns promising massive change…

On November 11 we get the biggest astrological doozy of the month; a harmonious connection between slow-moving VIPs (Very Important Planets) Saturn and Uranus. The reasoning behind why this is important is simple. The moving planets, Saturn and Uranus are both much slower moving than, say zippy Mercury and fast Mars. So when planets such as Saturn and Uranus connect, it’s big news!

To break this connection down a bit here is some info:

Saturn is in the sign of Sagittarius – this means Capricorns, Cancerians, Geminis and Sadges will all feel this link a lot, and also anyone with any of those signs Rising.

Uranus is in the sign of Aries, so all Aries, Libran and Aquarians and anyone with any of those signs rising will also feel this connection a lot.

As for how the connect between Saturn and Uranus will play out, it’s curious; Saturn is the heavy and lumbering planet made seemingly of concrete, while Uranus is the electric flash of a silver streak of a mad planet that no one can control.

Seeing them together like this suggests:

1. This is a very good time to make positive changes in your life. Don’t wait for the New Year. They should run smoothly now so make the most of the energies. Changes which transpire not should not come as too much of a jolt

2. You can be cool and calm as you plan out which changes you want to effect in your life

3. November is also a very good time to try something new, to experiment and/or to see if you can take your own unique way of doing things and perhaps even turn it in to a job. Creative self-expression is well starred.

4. Quite often it’s tough to implement new ways of doing things but right now you should find it’s relatively effortless.

5. At work in particular, it’s a wonderful time for change and many will feel now as though all their hard work in the past two years is finally paying off.

For you as a CANCERIAN, you have the chance to completely change your career! If you’ve always wanted to work for yourself, or you’ve had a yen to work in TV or on the Net, this transit is especially good for you. Break out while you still have great stars! Do the thing which is going to make you feel free! (But make sure you have enough to pay your bills before you do anything rash!)

It’s also worth taking a look at the shift of the Sun into Sagittarius. Remember that the Sun acts as something of a spotlight as it goes around your chart. Whether the Sun is, your attention is likely to follow. So here is where you can expect your focus to be for the four weeks following the Sun’s move into Sadge on November 22:

It’s all very well coasting along and hoping that life will fall into place, but as the Sun moves into your 6th house, it’s time to think about the structure of your days. What responsibilities do you have which you just can’t be lax about and is your life organised in such a way so that you can get all that you need to get done, done. Think about your routines – are they helping or hindering you. This is also the start of a four week period when you would do well to look at your health – not because you are going to get sick but because it’s the ideal moment to make sure you’re looking after yourself. Finally, it’s a month-long cycle where you need to think less about how to serve your own needs and more about how to help others.

Finally, where’s the Moon? A very good question!

This month the Full Moon takes place in Taurus.
Full Moon at 12 Taurus
SYDNEY: November 4, 4.22pm
NEW YORK: November 4, 1.22am
LONDON: November 4, 5.22am

Here’s what that means for YOU:

As the Full Moon takes place in your 11th house, it’s time to look at the things you’ve been hoping and wishing for. Either it’s going to become clear how you can make it happen or it might be about to become clear that it’s a pipedream you’d do best to move on from. As well, while the past few weeks have almost certainly been about you, the fun you can have, your romantic life, your self-expression, a child you’ve been indulging and/or a creative project you’ve had on the boil – but the skies now suggest that you think less about that and more about if you are carrying your weight where the groups you belong to are concerned.

Meanwhile the New Moon takes place in Scorpio later in the month.

New Moon at 27 Scorpio
SYDNEY: November 18, 10.42pm
NEW YORK: November 18, 6.42am
LONDON: November 18, 11.42am

Remember to make a wish just afterwards!

Summing it all up in a nutshell…

Not to sugar coat it, life at home, with family and in your relationships looks fraught this month. If you’re living consciously and trying to improve the way you handle conflict at home and work, b-r-e-a-t-h-e deeper in November, and count to ten when someone stresses you, especially around November 19. Manage this and November could yet be quite fun!
