Astro Update: November 2014

Astro Update: November 2014

November begins with Mercury Direct, but the Shadow of Mercury Retrograde still lingering. Hey, at least we are out of the woods! Most of October was dominated by that somewhat annoying and confusing influence, so the fact that it’s fading is good news. You may still notice glitches in communication and challenges with technology for the first week of the month. Nevertheless, November will represent a more accelerated and productive vibration in general, so take advantage of it! It already feels tons better to me!

There’s a Full Moon in Taurus on November 6, 2014 which will shed light on both love and money. With the Sun in Scorpio, there may be a bit of intensity on the emotional front, but Venus is also in Scorpio at the time of the Full Moon, which will soften things some, and put the emphasis on sex, love, and compassion.

If there is a period of November to approach with caution it will center on and around November 10, 2014, when Mars lines up with Pluto in Capricorn. Mars is traditionally known as the God of War, and Pluto can sometimes come off a little like a Grand Inquisitor, deciding ones fate. The combination of the two with the accompanying square to revolutionary Uranus in Aries could pack a real punch. I’d give this planetary combo a wide berth. So caution is advised from November 9 through 15. What to expect? People tend to get angry, riled up, and temperamental during these influences, and even destructive at times. Accidents and confrontation could also be a factor. So, if you see that kind of energy about to erupt with loved ones, friends, colleagues, or even strangers…get out of the way! And watch your own impulses and reactions carefully, too! Take it slow and tap in to your compassion and chill. Then you will be a help to others who may not have much perspective.

The New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22, 2014 should be a refreshing shift in the general mood of the day. With the Sun, the Moon, and Venus lining up together, creativity and enthusiasm will take hold. This gets the ball rolling in a very positive way for the upcoming holiday season. Hooray!


Horoscopes for November 2014

For all the Sun Signs: Tie up loose ends and solve problems during the first week of November. As I mentioned, Mercury Retrograde is fading fast, but there may still be some lingering problems to solve. Try to get things squared away as the Taurus Full Moon approaches on November 6th. After November 15 the somewhat angry vibes from Mars/Pluto/Uranus will have subsided, and things will really start to feel more and more progressive. Planning a party, wedding, or event? Try the weekend of November 15 and 16. Sunday, November 23 is also a terrific day for just about anything, with a cool trine from the Moon in Sagittarius to Jupiter in Leo. Lucky stuff!Opportunity Periods: November 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, and 23.

Aries (March 21-April 19) Rams born early in April will feel the brunt of the Mars/Pluto pairing in Capricorn. Hang in there and keep your cool if possible! You could get pretty cranky. For all Aries, relationships will be heating up, money issues will need attention, and if something needs to end, LET IT!

Taurus (April 20-May 20) The Full Moon in Taurus has your name on it! Expect powerful feelings and emotional events around November 6. With Venus in Scorpio in the mix, things could get steamy in the love department. The general mood? Positive but intense.

Gemini (May 21-June 20 ) Keep things neutral at work and at home. Pay attention to your health. Sound boring? It shouldn’t. Things might be a little quiet at the beginning of the month, but they will be a lot more exciting toward the end! So, store up some extra energy for that!

Cancer (June 21-July 21) Early Cancers may be in the crosshairs of the Mars/Pluto paring during the beginning of the month. Word to the wise: choose your battles and don’t get involved in the controversies of others. They’ll try to pull you in. The good news is you should feel remarkable sexy and creative this month, so have some fun with that!

Leo (July 23-August 22) Saturn is still messing with you a bit, bringing up issues at home and with loved ones. But hey, lucky Jupiter is on your side! Tackle responsibilities, keep your chin up, try not to complain, and take advantage of opportunities that will continue to arise! Things will feel particularly groovy for you towards the end of the month.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Things are generally supportive of you now, and your ideas are flowing. Communication improves and as the month progresses you will likely get important news about a project or plan. The one catch for early Virgos is the Neptune opposition that’s hanging around. Embrace clarity and if it something seems too good to be true…IT IS.

Libra (September 23-October 22) Early Libras could feel spun around and upset by the Mars/Pluto/Uranus business at the beginning of the month. The main problems will center on relationships and family matters. Keep your cool. Things will smooth out by mid-month. Also, pay careful attention to money and monitor expenditures carefully as you might tend to overextend.

Scorpio (October 23-Novemeber 21) Happy Birthday Scorpios! Strong emotion and passion will characterize the start of the month. Venus in Scorpio will make it all feel pretty good! And you’ve almost graduated from over 2 years of work with Saturn in your sign. Things are looking up!

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) The first part of the month might feel a little quiet, but don’t let that fool you! Get your inner balance going so you can take advantage of exciting times towards month’s end.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Keep your cool as the month begins. People will be pulling your chain. Don’t take it personally. This is a time to make friends and influence people. So, keep your head on straight and do that!

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Take charge at work and get the job done! Your efforts will be noticed! Feeling lucky? You should be! Particularly if you are single, as Jupiter is sending you good vibes from the Love Shack! Have fun!

Pisces (February 19-March 20) This is a favorable time for you. Learn, teach, and experience! Make friends with your spirituality and creativity and hang out with people of like mind. Many new things are possible now. Enjoy them!
