Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)
A host of green lights ensures that November is going to be a month to remember. The big news is the fact that your ruling planet, Jupiter, the planet of luck, opportunity and good fortune, is on the move. This is always significant for you but this year especially so, because Jupiter moves into your star sign Sagittarius on the 8th where it remains until December 2019.
Jupiter takes approximately twelve years to circuit the zodiac so this big event doesn’t happen every year. In fact, you’ve had to wait quite some time to enjoy Jupiter’s bounty in your star sign.
This lucky planetary transit happens two weeks before the Sun enters your star sign Sagittarius on the 22nd. So what will Jupiter offer you when it’s in your sign of the zodiac?
Jupiter is the biggest planet in the universe and represents all that’s expansive in life. This is the planet of freedom, allowing you to let go of ties that bind and anything or anyone who holds you back in life.
When Jupiter’s in full flow, you want to see the world and save the world. Jupiter rules travel, education, spirituality, philosophy and philanthropic activities. Choose your pick. What’s not advised when Jupiter is strong in your chart is to play small or stay close to home. Jupiter rewards bold behaviour and loves the free-spirit, the explorer, the entrepreneur, the lover of life.
Notice what takes place on the 8th when there’s a Moon/Jupiter conjunction and the 26th when the Sun sits next to Jupiter in the heavens. These are super-powerful planetary events. As Jupiter expands what it touches, be yourself and act with integrity. Jupiter rules the truth and humanity so be true to your beliefs, live life to the full and make the most of this special astrological transit.
Do something special this month, whether that means a big party and celebration or you take part in a unique event, a conference or workshop.
It is important to note that this month Mercury turns retrograde in your star sign Sagittarius on the 17th and remains on go slow until December 6th. Therefore, you may find that things don’t fall into your lap overnight and you do need to be patient, at some level.
Mercury retrograde is great for learning more about yourself and matching who you are on the inside with who you are on the outside. Take your time exploring what next and if you’re not sure where you’re heading or why, use this month to discover more.
Mercury teams up with Jupiter on the 27th, which could be special indeed. Mercury retrograde sometimes flags up a theme of second chances or not getting it right first time around. Do not give up, however, because Mercury and Jupiter unite again on December 21st and this time they are both moving in direct motion. This is brilliant for good news, passing a test or exam or being able to shine.
In November, there could be significant development with a friend or group of people. Venus, the planet of relating, turns direct on the 16th in Libra, the star sign which rules friendship in your horoscope. This planetary event may bring new information to light or someone back into your life.
It indicates a chance to reconnect with a friend or a group and move things forward in an amicable way. Venus, the goddess of love, is in Libra throughout November so love and friendship go hand in hand. This is a month when two’s company and you’re at your happiest chatting to a loved one or a good friend.
Laughter and entertainment can boost a close relationship and your social life too. Introduce a lover to your friends or get back in touch with someone you loved and lost. Live-wire Uranus is back in Aries and your romance sector on the 6th, when acting spontaneously brings instant results.
If you’re looking for love, the 9th looks great when the lovers of the heavens, Venus and Mars, unite, a wonderful day for harmonious relationships. Think reconnection, second chances and enjoy the people you’re with. There’s also a Full Moon in Gemini and your relationship sector on the 23rd, so relationships are under the cosmic spotlight.
You may have to tie up loose ends this month especially if you’ve been avoiding a conversation or putting off a major decision. There are a couple of reasons for this.
Firstly, action planet, Mars, is in Aquarius until the 15th, ruling communication in your horoscope. Mars has spent a long time here since May of this year. With Mars picking up speed and completing its journey through Aquarius, use this planetary transit to pick up the phone or send that all-important text or email.
Secondly, the Sun is in Scorpio and hidden away in your horoscope until the 22nd. This often flags up a theme of endings and completion. This may be especially evident on or around the New Moon on the 7th. This is a good date to make a final decision with regard to work or a health or personal issue.
View this as a letting-go process. It’s about getting rid of whatever’s old, outdated or toxic in your life. In its place, bring in new energy that’s rejuvenating. You might be letting go of a plan to travel or study that’s not worked out or a job that’s past its sell-by date or a company that doesn’t want to employ you.
Sometimes you have to wipe the slate clean in order to begin again. Jupiter’s move into Sagittarius sends a clear message that it’s time to put the past behind you and embrace a bright new future. In fact, Jupiter’s move into Sagittarius could be the best birthday present you could wish for.
