There have been lots of stops and starts in your life this year due to planets that have been opposing each other. And Covid hasn’t helped matters either. But the good news is that momentum starts to develop in November, thanks to three planetary aspects that will take place from the middle of the month on.
Chances are you’ve been unsure about big ideas and plans. Maybe you’ve been waffling back and forth. Perhaps you thought you needed more information, more education, more skills. Decision makers may have been unavailable, or unable to see the big picture themselves. A lover could have also been on the fence, which just added to the sense of frustration.
All of that changes on the 13th when Mars finally goes direct in your tenth house of success. This is where we formulate goals and go after them, and usually Mars is your best friend when it’s here! But when it retrogrades, it makes you question things. It could also make you too anxious and pushy. Once it’s in direct motion, it’s like your foot is coming off the brakes and is stepping on the accelerator.
In addition, Neptune has been retrograde for months in your ninth house of visionary thinking. This could have created “shiny, bright object syndrome”, in which you were being tempted by way too many opportunities. If you’ve been trying to launch your career, a website, a book deal or anything else that’s a big leap, Neptune’s backspin could’ve made things slower than you’d like.
Here’s happy news: Neptune goes direct on the 28th, which is the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. Then two days later there is a fabulous full Moon/lunar eclipse on the 30th in Gemini. This is your house of closure, the place where we walk away from situations or people that are no longer helping us along our life’s path.
Lunar eclipses are high-octane full moons, so they really pack a punch. You need to let things go, and eclipses force you to do that quickly and without hesitation. This could mean a job or a bad relationship, but it also could be something internal.
Things like your own poor habits, negative thought patterns, toxic dependencies on other people, and so on. Eclipses can be rough but this is a good one. Besides, by the time the eclipse rolls around you’ll be feeling a lot stronger because the other two planets have gone direct.
November is going to shine a powerful light on close relationships, which includes love and family. Your housing situation is also covered. Last month Mercury went retrograde in your house of romance, then on October 27th it continued to backslide into your domestic zone. So for weeks now Mercury has been stirring up miscommunication with parents, siblings, kids, roommates and so on.
Mercury goes direct on the 3rd, but you’re not completely done with these matters. Venus also happens to be in your domestic sector and it forms some tense aspects as the month goes on. Pay attention to the 6th, 15th, 16th and 19th. Someone in your world could be problematic, and it could be family or a lover.
However, it also could be anyone who you deal with when it comes to your housing: like a landlord, real estate agent, building contractor and so on. Once you get past the 19th things start to quiet down.
Love looks great in November, as the Sun is in your house of romance as the month begins. A new moon occurs here on the 15th. Mark this day on your calendar: the 12th, when Jupiter and Pluto form a conjunction in your seventh house of serious love.
A conjunction is an aspect in which two or more planets line up perfectly, one behind the other, in a particular part of the sky. Jupiter is the planet of abundance and Pluto is the planet of transformation. When they meet up in your house of serious partnerships, some major changes are brewing and they are for the better. Don’t forget, Mars goes direct the next day in your house of goals.
Saturday the 14th is absolutely magnificent for romance, with two fabulous aspects taking place. Singles could meet someone new, someone who will stick around for a long time. If you’re dating someone, things could start to get a lot more serious. Then on Sunday the 15th, the new moon in your house of romance arrives, opening up a delightful new chapter.
Your career should also take off once Mars goes direct on the 13th. You may find that people will want to partner with you in November. This is a super creative time for you, so take on projects and clients that enable you to really show off your talents.
