November is Scorpio season and this month there’s plenty of passion and intensity in play. As the month begins, both the Sun (self) and Venus (love) are in your sign of Scorpio.
When Venus is in your sign, you attract other people to you whether you’re dating, mating, flirting or having fun. Make the most of Venus in your sign to boost your popularity.
The focus is firmly fixed on your sign and your personal goals and ambitions are under scrutiny. This is a good month to look to the year ahead and think about what you want to achieve in 2015.
Your image, your name and how you look are key factors in your success so you may be planning a makeover or want to launch a website or a business in your own name.
Mars is your traditional ruling planet and Mars is powerful and strong throughout November in the earth sign Capricorn. This rules your communication sector so another reason why you’re wise to think about your message, your voice and how you come across to others. You can speak with authority and be wonderfully assertive with Mars in Capricorn. Fight your corner, defend your rights and stand up for what you believe in.
Mercury, the communication planet, returns to your sign of Scorpio on the 8th where it remains until the 28th and another indication that you’re the one in charge and other people want to hear what you have to say.
Use this power and force to good effect and remember that your sign rules transformation. Whether you’re up for self-transformation or you’re keen to transform the world or other people, this is the perfect opportunity to write your mission statement, draw up your CV and unleash your ideas on the world.
Yet this is also an important month for another reason and it’s actually through the struggle and your natural survival instincts that you can learn the most. Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, has been in your sign of Scorpio since late 2012 and you may realise by now that Saturn in Scorpio isn’t light and breezy. This can be a tough energy, relentless, hard work, reminding you that nothing comes for free and you have to prove your worth.
Plus when Saturn’s in your sign, you can experience health niggles, low energy and obstacles or limitations physical or otherwise. This month Saturn’s putting on the pressure but this is because Saturn will leave your sign of Scorpio late next month on December 23rd. What’s taking place right now is the beginning of the end and it’s really important to get those endings right.
To know more about what this means for you look back to some key dates in October. On October 4th Mercury turned retrograde at 2 Scorpio and a few weeks later on October 23rd there was a Solar or New Moon eclipse at 0 Scorpio.
Both these events are linked to what’s hidden; they may have brought drama into your life or secrets or truths may have emerged. This is about you personally and how you lead your life.
This month there’s a chance for resolution and to make some key decisions which will have an impact on your life in the coming year. It’s about looking back and looking ahead. You need to decide what in life you’re ready to let go of, which door you want to close and where you want to say goodbye. You may decide to give up a bad habit, change your attitude or let go of a resentment or bitterness as Saturn can symbolise a negative or dampening influence.
The key dates when your path ahead is revealed to you with clarity come early in the month. The Full Moon on the 6th is powerful as it cuts across the Scorpio/Taurus axis of your chart. Emotions are heightened but you know what you need to do in order to create a ‘safe harbour’ for yourself.
Four days later on the 10th, Mercury returns to the place it was when it turned retrograde in the heavens on October 4th and Mercury is finally out of it’s shadow phase. This is your cue to speak up, to initiate that important conversation and to return to an idea or negotiation which began early October. This may represent a second or third chance and an opportunity to try again.
Saturn weighs down the personal planets in Scorpio on the 13th, 18th and 26th when it makes a close conjunction to Venus (love/money), the Sun (self) and Mercury (communication) respectively. This is about facing facts and Saturn adds the get real factor to life. Here’s your chance to know what’s coming to an end and why and where you’re ready to release a burden or weight that’s dominated for too long.
Mid-month Mars is also in action when it clashes with the Uranus-Pluto square on the 10th and 13th respectively and this is returning to an old demon, a repeat issue. It may be linked to your work or your health and sweeping out what’s old and outdated so you can allow in fresh energy.
Once you’re clear about who or what has power or control over you, then you can start releasing and setting yourself free. It’s a huge month, November, powerful and mighty that’s setting you up for an easier year ahead. Time to say goodbye to whatever haunts you or holds you fast.
Finally this month, the planets start moving into Sagittarius and your personal money sector from the 16th onwards. Venus enters Sagittarius on the 16th followed by the Sun on the 22nd and Mercury on the 28th.
This is where the energy goes and you’re wise to do whatever’s necessary to improve your earnings and/or to enjoy spending your money. The New Moon on the 22nd falls in Sagittarius and is a brilliant date for new beginnings on the cash front.
Love is there for the taking if you’re looking and the 1st and 27th are dates when Venus is flying high but for the main part, November’s stars turn their focus on you. This is your month to reorient yourself and free yourself so you’re ready to start afresh when the new year begins,
