The gentle month of November begins with a nice start: the Sun and Mercury are both in your fifth house of fun, romance, creativity and children. Make plans to spend time with the people you love, and ensure that it’s quality time as you’ll be getting busier with work pursuits and chores around the house later on.
If you’re in a creative or artistic line of work, this could be one of the best times all year to make progress. Even if you’re not an “artiste” for a living, your ability to be innovative will soar thanks to the influence of the fiery Sun and quick-witted Mercury. Disciplinarian Saturn is in a good spot from your house of productivity, ensuring that new skills turn into habits that will prove to be successful over time. Work hard on your craft this month, Cancer, whether you’re a massage therapist, jewelry designer or an accountant. Venus is also in an efficient mood, helping projects run more smoothly.
With the planet of inspiration, Neptune, in your house of higher learning it’s a great time to sign up for a class or attend a weekend workshop. The watery planet has been retrograde for several months, which may have found you doubting your skills or lacking in bright ideas. That will all change when Neptune resumes direct motion on the 19th.
The place where Neptune is located is also your sector of media attention and international affairs, so don’t be surprised if you start to think in bigger, bolder terms regardless as to your occupation. Consider taking a brick and mortar store online so that you can reach a national or international client base. Try to expand your sales territory. Search for a PR agent who will get the word about you out to a larger audience. Traveling for work or just plain fun could be high on your list these days, so book a trip now. If you have been unable to travel much due to restraints (finances, your workload, family demands) you may be able to break free after the 19th.
Great days for work progress are: the 1st (shoot for a promotion), the 3rd and 7th (partnering with someone, finding an agent), and the 5th (landing an awesome assignment).
It’s also a big month for fun and romance, and with Mars and Pluto in the commitment zone things with you and an amour could get pretty serious. That’s because love planet Venus glides into the same part of the sky on the 11th, joining her cosmic lover Mars and transformative Pluto. Good days for love are the 1st, 3rd, 7th and 19th.
But put on your seatbelt around Thanksgiving, when a series of mixed up aspects create a bit of a bumpy ride. Thursday the 24th, Thanksgiving, could be tense between you, a lover and your family. A Jupiter-Pluto square indicates that there could be trouble which can manifest in a number of ways: your parents don’t like your spouse or new lover, or vice versa; there’s arguing over whose house we’re going to for dinner; you and your amour can’t agree as to where the relationship is going; or one of you is a bit bossy while the other is defensive.
But the very next day things improve enormously as a powerful Venus-Pluto conjunction takes place. You can talk things over with people and resolve issues. Many Cancers will decide to tie the knot or take an existing romance to the next logical level. Truth be told, you may have to take a more authoritative role than usual, not only with a lover but your family. If your parents or siblings are interfering with your personal life then you may need to tell them to back down.
Over the second half of the month you will become more driven to pull your life together as the Sun moves into your efficient sixth house on the 21st. This not only refers to your work flow at the office but the state of affairs at home, from having organized closets to a balanced checkbook. The fact that this happens right before Thanksgiving, a holiday for many Americans, means that even if you’re off from work you’ll still want to get things done. Wednesday the 23rd is superb for drawing up action plans and strategies. Sunday the 26th and into Monday the 27th are perfect for impressing the boss with your sharp ideas, going on an interview, e-mailing your resume or revising the roles of your employees.
A new moon occurs in the efficiency zone on the 29th which will really kick your can-do attitude into high gear. Mars is in a good angle from your house of finances, indicating that even if you’re just getting things cleared up at home that there could be a solid financial benefit in doing so. A full moon earlier in November on the 11th is a great time to dive into group endeavors, such as creating a think tank at the office or a Moms’ meet-up group in the neighborhood. Any Cancer considering going online with a venture should do so around the time of this lunation. You may also have a happy moment in which a team effort finally gets wrapped up to everyone’s liking.
