Aries (21 March – 19 April)
The first two weeks of November are ideal to keep your head down, work hard and complete important goals or projects. Your ruler Mars remains strong in Capricorn until the 9th and both communication planet Mercury and the Sun are in Scorpio until the 12th and 21st respectively.
Capricorn rules your work and career and Scorpio rules joint finances so it’s these areas of life where you can make steady progress in the month ahead.
When it comes to work however you might already be panicking that the end of the year is almost upon you. In some cases, you realise that from now until the end of the year you are going to have to learn to delegate or spend more time in an advisory role rather than pursue your own work projects. So use this productive period to crack on with your own work goals and secure your finances as best you can.
When you have key planets in Scorpio, your financial success is linked to other people. You might not feel in control of money matters or find it difficult relying on others for your own financial security. Yet this is a positive period to create strong alliances and partnerships that benefit you financially.
The key date in this respect is the 14th when there’s a Full Moon in the sky cutting across the Taurus/Scorpio axis of the zodiac. These two signs rule money in your chart and the Moon is exalted in Taurus. In fact, the Moon in Taurus is said to be a safe harbour so this is ideal for securing your finances and making sound money decisions.
It’s not the best time to spend wildly unless you’re making a low-risk investment which will give you financial security further down the line. Do whatever is necessary to ensure your money’s working for you. Keep things steady both financially and at work.
The last week of November adds a new dimension to your career and vocation, your future path. On the 24th, there’s a major planetary aspect between the big planet Jupiter and power planet Pluto. Jupiter is the planet of opportunity and growth and is currently in your opposite sign of Libra ruling relationships. Pluto rules transformation and is in Capricorn and your career sector.
Libra and Capricorn are cardinal signs, the leaders and motivators of the zodiac. When these two mighty planets, Jupiter and Pluto, clash in the heavens, this signals a shift in power. You might find, for example, that your own position is weakened as a third party is elevated to a higher position.
Certainly, the last week in the month is the time when you’ll notice who is in favour at work and who is calling the shots. The planet linked to women, Venus, is also in Capricorn from the 12th and caught up in the Jupiter-Pluto planetary pattern.
So play your cards carefully at the end of the month and do your best to get on the right side of the people in power, the people with influence. This is especially important because the Jupiter-Pluto aspect will repeat twice more in 2017. This situation is not going away and you’re wise to ensure you end up on the winning team.
It’s not all about the serious side of life this month however because the personal planets start to light up your fellow fire sign Sagittarius. Love planet Venus is in Sagittarius until the 12th and on the same date communication planet Mercury enters Sagittarius. In addition, the Sun begins its annual trip through Sagittarius on the 21st.
Sagittarius adds energy and enthusiasm to your month ahead. Fire signs, like your own sign of Aries, are fun loving and playful. Plus, Sagittarius rules the bigger picture. This is about any activity which gives your life meaning. This is the side of your nature which wants to explore, say Yes to life and take on new experiences.
You might feel more restless than usual this month, You might be keen to travel or study or learn something new. There will be times when this turns into a soul-searching experience, especially from the 18th to the 20th and close to the New Moon in Sagittarius on the 29th. You could be yearning for a spiritual connection or want or need to make sense of life.
This may be the time of year when you are already thinking about the year ahead, what you want more of, how you want to do things differently. The New Moon on the 29th is a brilliant date to book a holiday, sign up for a course and widen your experience of life in any way you choose.
Try and surrender to life at this time and trust that the experiences you need will come your way. When it comes to love, here too you might be searching for something different and crave adventure.
Whilst Venus is in Sagittarius until the 12th, this is perfect for a holiday romance or meeting someone new at a place of study. You could be drawn towards a person from a different culture or background to yourself. If you’re in a relationship or marriage, plan a holiday together or sign up for new adventure. You need a partner in your life who is as ready to have fun as you are.
The only question mark around love and relationships now is that you don’t mix business and pleasure, especially towards the end of November. This wouldn’t be a great idea because further down the line you might realise you can only have one or the other, love or career. Trying to juggle the two could backfire on you.
