There’s a strong earthy vibe as November begins and this is good news for you being one of the earth signs.
Last month’s Jupiter-Pluto aspect which took place on 11th October continues to reverberate and what you say Yes to now can potentially be life-changing, transformative.
Pluto, the transformation planet, is currently undergoing a long journey through your sign of Capricorn.
This can pull you down to the depths especially when Pluto goes over your Sun in Capricorn and sometimes with Pluto you have to confront what’s dark in life before you can emerge into the light.
Yet any form of self-analysis or personal development work enhances this transit of Pluto and there’s the potential for a huge amount of self understanding and insight. Plus Jupiter is breaking everything open in a good way. Jupiter in Virgo offers you an opportunity to expand your horizons physically, mentally and spiritually and broaden your outlook on life.
This is a searching time in some respects but it indicates that playing small won’t benefit you and new experiences will leave an imprint that remains for ever. This is prime time for travel, new courses, new learning, new philosophies or faith.
Look out for someone who can join you in a new adventure on or around the 3rd when the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, conjoin in Virgo. You might arrange something special with your partner or a good friend. New opportunities or invitations come your way when Venus and Mars collaborate together.
Friends and socialising also dominate the month ahead due to the fact that the Sun is in Scorpio and your friendship sector until the 22nd and is joined by communication planet Mercury from the 2nd to the 20th. This is prime time to widen your social circle, join a new group or society and do more of what you love.
Friendships can become more intense with the emphasis on the sign of Scorpio but it’s a good time to go deep and get to know someone on a more intimate or personal level. Forget formalities and ask searching questions. Everyone has a story to tell and the more you interact with others, the more you’re reminded how many people struggle and delight in similar ways.
The New Moon on the 11th takes place in Scorpio and this is a brilliant date to arrange an outing with friends, a get-together or join forces in some other way to have fun and explore life to the full. Notice who comes into your life on or around this date and reach out to old friends, especially someone you’ve been thinking about but haven’t seen for ages.
Being a Capricorn, you’re at your best when life is balanced and work and ambition are important to you. If life’s all play and no work or at least you lack a vocation, you quickly begin to feel unfulfilled. This has been quite a testing few months for you on the career front and with numerous twists and turns and unexpected events, you’re probably more than ready for a period when you can kick back and take it easy.
This is highly likely thanks to November’s stars because the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, leave Virgo and enter Libra and your career sector on the 8th and 12th respectively. Venus is strong in Libra, it’s a sign she enjoys and it indicates a period of pleasure in your work or chosen vocation.
Plus Venus is the planet of relating so choose your team carefully, hang out with people you like and ensure that fun is part of your working life. This is important as well as having people around you who inspire you and keep you focused on your next goal. It’s a good time to find a role model and connect with people of influence who can help you on your way.
Mars adds ambition and drive to the mix and sometimes Mars can indicate arguments or stress but this month Mars is relatively peaceful. The planet of action and energy makes only one important aspect to your ruling planet Saturn on the 24th. You seem to be in step with your working life and understand the importance of pacing yourself and not taking on too much.
Aim for a healthy work/life balance and wherever possible choose an atmosphere of peace and harmony in your working life. Good working relations make a huge difference to your well-being.
The only tricky patch for work comes from the 21st-23rd although this has more to do with people close to you rather than office politics. On these dates, Venus in Libra clashes with the outer planets Pluto and Uranus. This is old news, a recurring theme. Pluto is in your sign of Capricorn and Uranus is in your home and family sector.
Whether you find it hard to juggle your personal and professional life or whether other people close to you insist on interfering or offering their opinions even when not asked for, this combination spells volatility. Keep out of the line of fire and deal with any sensitive issues on the 24th when you’re back in flow.
Finally, the last week of the month is potentially confusing or uncertain. Your ruling planet Saturn is in Sagittarius the sign before yours in the zodiac, highlighting hidden matters, secrets and your inner life. You might be dealing with issues around a lack of confidence or find that what you do in the world doesn’t necessarily fit with who you are on the inside.
You might find you want to make a difference and help others, do something meaningful or you’re questioning where you’re heading in life and why. The peak dates are the 25th when there’s a Full Moon cutting across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis and the 26th when Saturn in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces.
Together these two planetary combinations are an overwhelm of emotion and you need to cut yourself some slack. If you want time out, make it happen and try not to let difficult or negative feelings take hold. Love yourself fully, be kind to you and know that if you struggling, there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Put support structures in place and prioritise your own needs.
