As November begins, there’s key planetary activity taking place in the sign of Virgo ruling your career, your vocation and where you’re heading in life.
On the 3rd, the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, unite in Virgo and this highlights partnership and collaboration. Working alongside someone who complements your skill set is a match made in heaven.
There might be good news for a partner, someone you work with and this helps to boost your own profile.
Look out for people who can help you climb the career ladder or influence you in your chosen vocation. Seek out a role model, team up with others, share ideas as together you’re bigger and better.
The other planet that’s now firmly established in Virgo is your ruling planet Jupiter so this is a positive period to boost your profile at work any way you can. Jupiter’s nature is expansive and represents opportunity and growth. Play big when it comes to your career and vocation, take on a new position of responsibility and step into your authority.
There may be new plans which are bubbling away behind the scenes and if you play your cards right and get in early, a secret project could propel you to fame and fortune. Certainly, this is prime time to look at what next when it comes to work and your next steps in life. You’re building towards something special and the more you allow your entrepreneurial ideas room to grow and flourish, the more successful your year ahead.
There is a strong emphasis now on research and preparation, gearing up for the next phase. Don’t reveal everything you’re working on and keep your cards close to your chest. This is because there are two key planets in your previous sign of Scorpio and Scorpio rules secrets and all things hidden. The Sun is in Scorpio until the 22nd and communication planet Mercury joins the Sun from the 2nd to the 20th.
This is an intense and analytical Mercury so it’s ideal time to allow yourself some peace and quiet to listen to your inner voice. Trust your intuition, think deep and consider your inner motivation. What do you really want to achieve and why? What next for you? Where in life do you want to play big? Get yourself ready for the next stage because with some hard work and effort, it’s going to be epic.
The New Moon on the 11th falls in the sign of Scorpio and this is a cunning New Moon for you. It’s helpful to look at what isn’t working in your life or what you want to get rid of. This might link to a detox or declutter. Sweep away the old to allow new energy to come in.
When planets are in your previous sign, it often benefits you to schedule more rest and relaxation into your diary especially if you’re busy. Prioritise your well-being and if you can, take a few days off to replenish your energy and recharge your batteries. You can quickly run down to empty if you’re on a relentless treadmill.
Being a Sagittarius, you need to have people around who you enjoy being with and fun is essential in your life. On the 8th and 12th respectively, first Venus and then Mars enters Libra and the most sociable sector of your chart. This highlights friendship, group activities and it’s the perfect opportunity to widen your social circle and arrange some get-togethers and fun events.
If you’re looking for love, ask your friends for an introduction and socialise more. It’s through your friends or group endeavours where you’ll meet someone special. The trickiest date for love is the 23rd when Venus in Libra is opposed by Uranus in Aries. This is a volatile energy and it’s best to check that someone’s completely available before you leap in.
Otherwise, it’s full steam ahead with networking, new connections and plenty of opportunity to play. You have big planets now in key work areas of your chart but if it’s all work and no play, you won’t be happy.
Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, remains in your sign of Sagittarius so you do need to step up a level, whether you’re taking on new responsibilities or you’re entering a more mature or adult phase.
Saturn rules responsibility, commitment, discipline and hard work. Whatever you want to achieve in your life, focus on the long-term picture and be prepared to knuckle down and prove you can be reliable. Be a stayer at work not a player.
The last week of the month could weigh heavy and certainly it’s a time when emotions are heightened. There’s a powerful Full Moon which cuts across the Gemini/Sagittarius axis of your chart on the 25th highlighting your close relationships. The following day, Saturn in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces bringing family connections to the fore.
Take care that you don’t allow yourself to feel gloomy or get too negative as the month comes to an end. There’s a lot to be happy about because communication planet Mercury enters your sign of Sagittarius on the 20th followed by the Sun on the 22nd.
Admittedly, the astrology indicates that there may be some sadness in your life as you’re letting go of the past or moving on. Family connections pull at your heart strings but your job is to keep firm boundaries in place so you can support others and look after yourself too. If everybody turns into an emotional wreck, it’s not going to help anyone.
Sometimes the Saturn/Neptune aspect highlights the things in your life you can’t change and it’s about accepting where you have no control and all you can do is let go and surrender to the situation.
Life’s moving on so feel any sadness that’s around and grieve well if necessary. Once you’ve experienced the powerful emotions you can move forward with confidence. The big events in life are what help you grow stronger and wiser in time.
