Having things shaken up sounds like a bad thing, but it can actually be a positive. In particular, if there is a secret you’re keeping or you suspect someone else is keeping, maybe it will be best for everyone if the truth comes out? Financially, if you have been working hard to boost your income in some way (full or part-time) you could find your travails now start to pay off. As well, it looks good for love, be that with your partner, family or simply with your beloved friends (love comes in all shapes and sizes, after all).
Power date: November 20 – you have the power of persuasion and seduction today
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:
Given that talking can be just a lot of hot air, it’s amazing how incredibly valid and life-changing conversations can also be. Something that someone else says makes us realise some deep dark truth about ourselves or life and whammo! Our whole perspective changes. Over the next few days and weeks, make sure you don’t go backing off from deep and meaningful conversations just because the topic makes you nervous. Don’t be scared of something just because it’s deep. You’ll be amazed at how tacking a subject which feels a bit ‘taboo’ can lead you to seeing everything from a much wider perspective. On a less esoteric level, you can also expect sex and money to take up a lot of your headspace now. If you want to renegotiate your pay or mortgage, it’s a good time to at least put your feelers out. Romantically, if you and your partner have been skimming the surface, expect to go deeper together. Talking about intimate issues will be somehow paradoxically and simultaneously more challenging yet easier.
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.
Venus will be moving through your seventh house of love. As you might expect, having the Planet Of Love in your Love Zone is pretty good news for you on the relationship front. As Venus passes through this part of your chart, you can expect to be easier to get along with, plain and simple, and that alone will instantly sweeten all your friendships and relationships. Added to this the astro-fact that Venus here also means it’s easier to express yourself and your warmest feelings to others, and you start to get an idea of your pulling power over the next four weeks. Singles should get out and mingle, while happy couples should lap up the Happy Couples vibes. Unhappy couples find themselves focusing on their love life now – look for a way to come to a gently accord with each other. And beyond romance, all partnerships of all descriptions are favored under these astro conditions, including business partnerships. You are a Peace Maker Extraordinaire right now – don’t be afraid to use your skills as and when you need to, for yourself and for others.
Gemini – in your daily life
Cancer – regarding your kids, your romantic life and your creative projects
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.
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
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 TAUREAN, it’s all about your spirituality. Where are your old ideas about God, Goddess, the Universe and everything no longer working for you? That’s where you can expect your body, mind and spirit to start thinking differently. You’re in line for a spiritual revolution and sudden flashes of psychic insight! Grab it while you still can!
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:
Over the next four weeks, you can expect to feel a whole lot more in touch with your Inner Self. It’s a very good time to look at where you are going and what it is inside you that is leading you there. If you’re confused about why you have chosen your current path, this is the time to stop and think. You may soon be able to change directions. On a less ethereal note, this is also the time to have a look at your finances – what you owe, what you’re saving. Pay off as many debts as you can now – you will be very happy you did so in six months time, as the Sun moves into your other money box.
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
The Full Moon takes place in your sign which is a sure message from the skies – it’s time to stop thinking so much about someone else, and time to start investing some emotional energy into your own well-being. This is a potentially highly emotional time so don’t be surprised if life feels extra intense. The trick is not to loose your cool, and to stay mindful of the fact that what happens now can be a path to your future. The Full Moon is definitely a marker for you – it can also be a turning point. If you’re not happy about where you life is headed, it’s time to turn and face a new direction.
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!
Your love life should be getting better and better. You have the lucky planet Jupiter, romantic Venus and the New Moon all in your Love Zone. Whichever way you slice it, there is love and romance in the air – plus even your non-romantic relationships should be flowing quite well. Be optimistic, cheerful and generous and you will attract the same.
