Capricorn (22 December – 19 January)
Action planet Mars begins the month in your sign of Capricorn where it remains until the 9th. This is a dynamic go-getting period for you when you can push ahead with your personal goals and ambitions.
This isn’t the time to go it alone however and the more you connect with other people professionally, the quicker your progress. Both communication planet Mercury and the Sun are in Scorpio and the sector of your chart which rules friends, groups, alliances until the 12th and 21st respectively.
So there’s power in numbers now and whether you’re connecting on- or off-line, pool resources and team up with other people to share skills and learn from one another. The 3rd and 7th are dates to note when transformational Pluto in your sign of Capricorn meets first with Mercury and then the Sun. Any work that helps you gain insight into yourself is highly recommended and other people will sit up and take notice of what you have to say.
There might be some romantic moments with friends too in November and it’s a positive period to widen your social circle, catch up with old friends and make time for the people you care about. Romantic Neptune delivers some sweet communication on the 1st and 19th, two of the most loving days of the month for you.
In addition, this month’s Full Moon falls in the earth sign Taurus and Taurus lights up your romance sector. This is a caring, nurturing vibe and you’re often happiest when your love life is settled and easy. You’re not usually someone who likes too much drama in your personal relationships and the Full Moon weekend is ideal to cosy up with the one you love.
Love is also under the spotlight from the 12th onwards because gentle Venus enters your sign of Capricorn on this date. Venus replaces Mars in your sign and Venus rules love and peace whereas Mars signals passion and anger. So there’s a chance to swap aggravation for amour in November. Make the most of this.
In your close relationships, it’s time to be tender and loving. If you haven’t had much time to appreciate your loved ones recently, then make sure they know you care about them. The more demonstrative and affectionate you are, the more you receive in return.
Yet events in the last week of November could highlight any problems or issues in a close relationship as Venus is caught up in a tricky planetary pattern with three of the slower moving planets; Jupiter in Libra and your career sector, Pluto in Capricorn and your personal sector and Uranus in Aries and your home and family sector.
These planets clash from the 25th to the 29th and this is when you need to reassess your situation especially if your life is out of balance. The major planetary aspect falls on the 24th when Jupiter in Libra is square to Pluto in Capricorn.
This is a big dynamic for you because if you’re typical of your sign, you like to get ahead in life and you’re often at your best and most fulfilled when you have a career or vocation you love. Yet Pluto could turn things upside down whether you’re not in love with what you do in life or you’re caught up in a conflict of power.
Often with this combination, you end up feeling out of control or your faith is being tested. Jupiter in Libra seeks out the truth and is a moral and ethical connection. Take care that you don’t go off the rails late November and get drawn into some kind of underworld activity. Stay away from trouble and if a business proposition or joint venture isn’t working out, decide your best mode of strategy.
This is not an easy planetary clash by any means and it’s important to recognise what it might mean for you because Jupiter and Pluto will make the same aspect twice more in 2017. Wherever in your life you’re up against opposition or you’re caught up in a power struggle, this could continue for some months yet.
In reality, it’s not a problem with a quick solution so do check out all your options and involve the people close to you in any key decisions. As Venus the love planet is caught up in the mix, it might be events in your partner’s life that affect your own or perhaps it’s your other half who’s not happy with what you’re doing.
You also need to find some time for yourself in November as the personal planets are in Sagittarius and the most hidden sector of your chart. Venus is here until the 12th when communication planet Mercury takes over the baton. Plus the Sun enters Sagittarius on the 21st.
So don’t ignore what’s going on for you personally and if you feel out of sorts, create the time to find out why. You might doubt your own progress or your abilities at times throughout November and if so, it’s important that you’re not overly critical.
Yes, you might have to make some tweaks especially if any wrongdoings are exposed but be kind to yourself and recognise your true abilities.
Action planet Mars enters Aquarius and your personal money sector on the 9th where it remains until mid-December. This is a progressive placing for Mars so you could consider new ways you can use or invest your money. If you want to earn more, this is also a positive period to go for it.
Look out for a Christmas job or push forward a new money-making venture. You might lose sight of the bigger picture at times this month but that doesn’t mean you can’t get ahead financially.
