LEO

Change is afoot for any Leos who have been feeling like someone or something has put the brakes on their fun. Whatever has been standing in the way of you and a good time looks like getting out of your way this month. So decide what fun means to you and be sure to schedule some in. If you’re keen to go away on a trip, this is a great time for it, or even just to make the booking. Also a great time to enrol if you want to do some study next year. Also life at home and with family looks promising.

Power date: November 9 – an especially powerful day when things should go your way

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:

Life, as any astrologer will tell you, goes in cycles. You’ve just come out of one where it was all about family – your Mum and Dad and your ‘new’ family if you’ve had one of your own, as well as thinking about your home, where home is and what you want for you home. And now? You’re now moving into a new and very different cycle where you basically expect to be making plenty of party appointments. Either you’re going to pariers or you’re throwing one yourself – and if so, it’s the ideal time for it. The part of your chart being stimulated now is the part where you (a) have fun and (b) express yourself. It’s the time to get your Fun Hat on again. Some of you will have had a lot of very heavy thinking to do in the past month or so – hopefully you have drawn all the conclusions you needed to and can now start to enjoy yourself and your thoughts a little more. Anyone with a creative project going can expect the juices to start flowing. In all your relationships, you will find it much easier to get along with others simply as you will find it easier to express yourself lightly but clearly.

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

Leo – at home and with family
Venus will be moving through your fourth house of home and family. This marks the start of a relatively quiet time when you’re far more likely to be found happily ensconced at home than out on the town. Book your calendar up over the next four weeks so that you get to spend plenty of time chez toi, either with a loved one, friends or family, or at least a couple of DVDs and a loving cat. Venus here in this part of your chart is less visible than she is in other sectors. If you want to take time out from the hustle and bustle, do so. You have the skies on your side. It’s clichéd but true – home really is where the heart is for you now. You can expect to feel quite peaceful over the next few weeks – what you’ll want is to proceed quietly, surrounded (if possible) only by people you love. You only get this chance to reconnect with this side of yourself once a year, so make the most of it. If you’re thinking of doing up your home, renovating or decorating, you have the stars totally on your side.

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 LEO, you have the chance to completely change things related to study, travel, publishing and The Great Cosmic Quest. Expect the unexpected in these areas. Anything can happen and probably will. True!

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:

As the Sun moves into your 5th solar house, it’s as though the Universe is issuing you with an edict which will be valid for one month – enjoy yourself! The 5th house is where we have fun, where we keep our inner child. It’s also the part of our charts related to our creative sides – indulge that part of you now. Children can also be expected to be more in your focus now (your own or someone else’s) – at the very least, learn from them if you’ve forgotten how to enjoy yourself. Some of you will be looking to get pregnant, finding out that you are pregnant, or even giving birth. This is the ‘creative’ part of your chart and there is nothing more ‘creative’ than creating a new life! Romantically, it’s all about flirting and remembering how to mix fun with romance.

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:

The Full Moon in your 10th house of suggests you may well be feeling a tug of war between your home life and your career. More than likely you have spent the past few weeks thinking about your personal life, you home, family, and where you feel you belong. Now though, the skies are reminding you that all of us have to crawl out from the safety of our nests from time to time. If you know you’ve been neglecting your professional obligations because of what’s been going on at home, the skies suggest now is the time to redress the balance.

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…

This month is largely about you learning how to argue. If the gloves come off and you say exactly what you think with no filter, you could get yourself into trouble, at home and/or at work. However if you talk things through properly without roaring at someone, you could find your personal and professional life starts getting better and better.

Watch below Yasmin Boland talk about how to make the most of this year.
