MONTH OF November
What do you stand for, Libra, and what keeps YOU standing strong? In November, the pillars of your security could get a little shake-up. While the Sun is in Scorpio and your stabilizing second house until November 22 (normally a grounding and industrious time), there will be other factors that could throw in a curveball or two. Communication planet Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio until November 20, a tricky transit that can wreak havoc on all forms of information, travel and technology. Since the second house rules work and daily routines, November could bring financial fluctuations or office politics that push you to the brink. It will take special effort to stay productive as misinformation circulates. Turn up the dial on your Libran flair for being the calm eye of the storm—even in the midst of chaos!
You’ll need that especially around November 5, when aggravator Mars locks into a heated square with manipulative Pluto, ramping up the conflict and tension. Mars is in Libra and your first house of self while Pluto’s simmering in Capricorn and your home and family sector. Those ties that bind could feel downright suffocating today. Is a close person trying to manipulate you by tugging on your heartstrings? Hold your ground in the face of emotional blackmail and don’t take the codependent bait. You may need to assert yourself in a way that feels unusually forceful. It’s not always comfortable to individuate from your family or support circle—Libras as a rule dislike conflict. But the Mars-Pluto square is demanding that you step up and voice your needs powerfully.
An intense moment of reckoning arrives on November 12, when the year’s only Taurus full moon lands in your eighth house of intimacy, merging and transformation. Ready to shed some layers and emerge a more powerful version of you? These moonbeams light the way. They’ll also form a harmonious trine to both structured Saturn and powerhouse Pluto in Capricorn and your fourth house of home and family, helping you reveal your strength with your inner circle. Your vulnerability is a superpower, Libra, and the Taurus full moon is here to show you that.
This full moon could also bring a some kind of financial windfall, such as a loan, an inheritance or a commission. With the moon-Saturn-Pluto trine, a relative might give you a tax-deductible gift or act as an angel investor for one of your entrepreneurial ventures. Perhaps you’ll consider merging your money for mutual gain, investing in real estate or finding a way to earn passive income through a family business. Just conduct your due diligence before you make any major commitments since the full moon will be opposite Mercury retrograde in your money zone. You want to make sure you have proper cash flow and future plans in place!
Once you get a green light, things can move fast. On November 19, red-hot Mars will leave your sign and zoom into Scorpio, blazing up this house of work and money until January 3. The rest of the year could be extremely busy with work and income-building opportunities. Exciting! Mars can add motivation and stress in equal doses, though, and you might find yourself short on funds or scrambling to cover an unplanned expense. Necessity is the mother of invention, so get out there and work it! You could end up paying your own Christmas bonus if you apply some hustle to the holiday season.
Don’t forget your number one superpower: the gift of gab! On November 22, the Sun soars into Sagittarius and your third house of communication, setting off a super-social four-week cycle. Work the parties and chat up the intriguing people you meet. By sharing what you do and asking about their plans and projects, you could discover an exciting synergy or three.
The November 26 Sagittarius new moon has “dynamic duo” energy written all over it. A conversation you have near this date could lead to a bigger collaboration over the coming six months. And since this new moon will “culminate” in next June’s Sagittarius lunar eclipse—an extra-potent full moon—you’re lining up the pieces for an epic event! A writing, teaching or media project could debut to great fanfare in the next half year. Start planting the seeds for that now.
If you’re RSVPing “yes” to every Paperless Post and Eventbrite invitation to land in your inbox, great. Just make sure you hydrate and have a healthy meal before you hit the holiday events circuit. On November 27, nurturing Neptune will end a five-month retrograde through Pisces and your sixth house of work and wellness. If you’ve lapsed on your healthy eating plan or daily yoga practice, get back on the holistic horse! Book an acupuncture appointment, try some supplements or, at the very least, get in some heart-rate-boosting movement daily. It will keep your tanks full for the rest of 2019, which will be packed to the gills with both work and play!
Home and family will soon become an active center of your chart as well. If you’re observing Thanksgiving in the U.S. on November 28, expect a day of bonding—and perhaps a few intense conversations. Four heavenly bodies will be in Capricorn and your domestic fourth house that day. On the lovely side, the caring moon and harmonizer Venus are here, lending a heaping helping of nostalgia to the long weekend. Go ahead and gush about gratitude to your nearest and dearest today, Libra! (No sign gives a toast quite like you.) However, boundary hound Saturn and private Pluto are also in Capricorn, warning you to set your limits and be responsible for your energy levels.
When you feel depleted, escape for a self-care SOS (the moon and Venus will happily book the spa) and ask for support! Make sure to set up clear expectations with your clan and avoid over-giving. This is an important lesson that will help shape your next year of life. On December 2 (spoiler!), expansive Jupiter moves into Capricorn for almost 13 months, bringing growth to your domestic zone. There may be a move, parenthood, an empty nest or evolution coming to this deeply personal part of your chart along with the new decade. Get ready for adventures and evolution—both within and without!
LOVE & ROMANCE:
The month is off to a flirty and confident start with both love planets in upbeat, vibrant parts of your chart. You’re feeling independent and, if you’re unattached, may be more interested in cantering around the pasture than in tying up to any one hitching post in particular.
Lusty Mars is on its biennial tour of your sign, making you irresistibly magnetic, upping your already serious charisma and drawing attention your way wherever you go—especially locally. Between now and November 19, make a point of putting yourself out there and letting your sensual side lead. Mars here can offset some of your natural tactfulness, and without meaning to, you could come off a bit opinionated or argumentative. By all means, make your desires plain and be direct. Just make sure you give others the same room to express themselves that you’re asking for.
If you’re in a LTR, this is a great cycle for open, honest communication and being crystal-clear about any needs that aren’t being met. Your side of the bargain: Listen as well as you express yourself, and don’t get defensive (which Mars can cause). Assume your partner has valid points and, later, take an unblinking look at behaviors you might actually want to shift. Once things are in a nice groove, focus on doing more together as a couple, like taking classes, exploring your neighborhood or taking short romantic day trips.
From now until November 25, your galactic guardian, gracious Venus, is flitting through open-minded Sagittarius and your social sector. This is a time for experimentation, whether with your dating choices, where you and your partner hang out (and with whom) or maybe something far more adventurous!
On November 19, when Mars beams into Scorpio and your luxe second house until January 3, 2020, you may develop an affinity for more upscale courtship—and more financially stable playmates. Be selective in your right swipes, knowing you won’t be happy with a second-rate choice. Make a point of dressing up and exuding the vibe of the person you’re looking to attract. With feisty Mars in your fiscal sector, couples may feel stressed about money—especially with holiday-shopping season officially underway. But this could be exactly the motivation you need to cut expenses and get your finances in order.
An auspicious day to look forward to is November 24, when the “great benefics,” Venus and Jupiter, unite in this expressive sector. While these two meet up every year, they only do so HERE once every 12 years, so don’t worry about speaking freely! A magical conversation that opens minds and hearts can connect you with a kindred spirit or remind you just how much you love the one you’re with. Single? You could meet a great prospect through friends—perhaps a person who’s wildly different from your usual “type.” Give them a chance. With the benefics widening the boundaries of your comfort zone, you just never know!
November 5: Mars-Pluto square
If you’ve been holding back your feelings, they may come gushing out like a geyser today. While confessing your attraction could get things flowing, negative emotions are probably better kept inside or shared with a confidante. While you’re going inward, dig a little deeper and explore what’s driving these feelings, like childhood issues or repressed fears.
MONEY & CAREER:
Wait to collaborate? With the Sun in Scorpio and your third house of kindred spirits, a part of you is eager to team up. But with your ruler, Mercury—the galactic guardian of communication, technology and travel—retrograde (backward) from October 31 to November 20, you might want to sniff this one out before diving in headfirst. Ask all the questions (and then some). On November 19, go-getter Mars will zoom into Scorpio for the rest of the year, heating up dynamic duos. By conducting due diligence, you’ll have your questions answered in time to make things official before the end of the year.
Financial stress could loom until the 19th, as Mars lingers in Libra and your second house of work and money. You may have to streeeetch your budget to meet some unplanned expenses. Let that motivate you! Lean into magnetic Mars’ confident energy and raise your rates, get that promotion or cast a wide job search net. The red planet can rev up your revenue goals. By the time the Taurus full moon lights up your ninth house of adventure, you’ll be ready to take a leap of faith. This is the perfect time to invest in the tools of your trade, so if it’s time to upgrade your computer or take that course that can give you a leg up in your career, start researching options then press “buy now” once Mercury retrograde ends on the 20th.
On November 22, the Sun slips into Sagittarius and your domestic sector, a great time to tend to your home office or even explore a money-making venture with a relative. The November 26 Sagittarius new moon could bring a real estate opportunity, such as a property sale or a money-making venture through Airbnb-ing or hosting a trunk show at your home. And if you’re feeling burnt out after a long year (and decade!), Sagittarius season is perfect for rebalancing your work and self-care ratio.
November 8: Sun-Neptune trine
This heart-expanding alignment could put you in highly generous spirits, so reach into your wallet—or give someone the gift of time and support. While there’s no scorecard to keep here, you will increase your own prosperity by giving unselfishly. Bring on the good karma!
