Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)
There’s a push-pull feel to November’s stars for you. Certainly, things are beginning to pick up pace but before you go running ahead, it’s important to notice what else is going on, especially on an inner level.
Your ruling planet Jupiter entered Scorpio and the most subterranean sector of your horoscope in the middle of last month. It’s a way to go here as it remains in this part of your chart for another year. So it’s within the psyche and retreat that hidden riches can be found. Scorpio is the sign of healing and it’s important not to rush inner work or a time of repair or renewal.
This is especially true in November because the Sun is also in Scorpio until the 22nd. So make time for you, and fit quiet time into your schedule. The Sun makes two positive planetary aspects this month to Neptune on the 3rd and Pluto on the 9th.
Neptune is in Pisces adding sentiment and yearning to home and family issues. You may be longing for someone in your life or feel comforted when you’re in your home or with the ones you love.
Pluto’s working its magic on your finances and here too there’s potential for transformation. Consider what money means to you and know that it’s unlikely to be about possessions but more about what you value on a deep level.
This month’s Full Moon on the 4th and the New Moon on the 18th light up this same sector of your horoscope. During the Full Moon, the Sun is in Scorpio opposing the Moon in Taurus. Taurus rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health and this is about finding a safe harbour in your life, somewhere you feel grounded, rooted and strong.
It’s an important date to consider your work and a good date to look for work too. Also, focus on your health and make any significant changes during the Full Moon.
The New Moon taps you deep into your psyche as it falls in Scorpio. Create some time for yourself on the 18th, whether you’re seeking answers to questions or you want to reconnect with the past. This can be a positive time for ritual and deciding your next steps for your own personal development.
The other important move for you is Venus entering Scorpio on the 7th and almost a week later, Venus reaches your ruling planet Jupiter in the zodiac. These are the two best planets in astrology coming together and this event usually happens only once a year.
So make the most of it. Venus rules love and money and Jupiter expands what it touches. You might want to reach out to someone at this time or perhaps you feel blessed through someone’s love or gift to you.
Venus in Scorpio is passionate but also private. This can flag up a a love affair or unrequited love. Feelings run deep when the goddess of love is in the most hidden sector of your horoscope.
Mercury is your partner planet and on the 5th, Mercury enters your sign of Sagittarius where it remains until January 10, 2018. This indicates a new phase for you in your relationships and someone could start to play a more visible role.
Mercury is in your star sign for so long because it turns retrograde next month from December 3rd to the 23rd. As Mercury is the planet of communication, this can be a time when things go awry in your life. Therefore, crack on with what you need to do this month. This feels very different to the emphasis on Scorpio, so you need to balance carefully being out in the world and pulling back in again.
On the 22nd, the Sun joins Mercury in Sagittarius and it’s the start of your birthday month. This is often a joyous time for you on the run up to Christmas and, if you’re true to your star sign, you love socialising and festivities.
There is another planet in Sagittarius as you’re no doubt aware if you know your astrology. The taskmaster of the heavens, Saturn, has been in your star sign since late 2014 but it does move on later this year, 2017.
Saturn represents hardship and difficulty, commitment and responsibility and it’s very different to your buoyant Sagittarius personality. So this has been a tough transit for many Sagittarius individuals.
There’s a real chance of a breakthrough this month however and Saturn doesn’t have long to go in your sign. On the 11th, Saturn teams up with Uranus in another fire sign Aries and this is the third meeting between these two planets. They came together on December 25, 2016, they met on May 19, 2017 and this connection on November 11, 2017 is their third and final meeting.
This feels like shaking off the shackles and pushing through any difficulty. Uranus is innovative and spontaneous and it’s in a fun sector of your horoscope. Do something wild and crazy now to release any tension and remind yourself that risk-taking and positive thinking suits your nature.
Finally, there are key planets in Libra and your friendship and group sector this month. Venus is there until the 7th and Mars throughout November. Yet both planets make difficult aspects this month. Venus clashes with Uranus on the 4th, the same day as the Full Moon and Mars clashes with Pluto on the 19th, the day after the New Moon.
This suggests difficulties within your friendship group or people behaving badly. You may find that a group or club closes down this month, or perhaps you’re the one who’s ready to move on and do something different. Either way, it’s here where there may be tension in your life so be aware of this and choose your friends with care. Be there too for those friends who need you most.
