MONTH OF November
You’ve got big ideas and supersized plans as you launch into November. But don’t go zooming into the stratosphere without doing those combustion checks! While the Sun’s in Scorpio and your visionary ninth house through November 22, your engines are revved. But Mercury, the planet of communication, technology and travel, is retrograde in Scorpio until November 19, which could stall or thwart your mission. Your number one rule this month: Don’t rush! Taking the time to do things right will be well worth the wait.
With expressive Mercury gone rogue in your outspoken ninth house, honesty isn’t necessarily the best policy. You may need to jot down your thoughts and “save to draft” (or confide to your journal) until later in the month. By all means, capture those gems; just hold off on implementation. The ninth house also rules travel, giving you a double dose of Mercury mayhem here. Luckily, we’re getting this signal-scrambling transit out of the way before the holidays, but if you’re booking an Airbnb or flight back home, triple-confirm your reservations! Hold off on any big risks or entrepreneurial ventures until Mercury turns direct November 20, and use this time to test, tweak and perfect your plans. With Black Friday arriving on November 29, Pisces business owners will definitely want to use the retrograde for extra prep time that could pay off handsomely.
Another reason to keep things low-key for the first three weeks: Energy planet Mars is finishing up a seven-week visit to Libra and your intense, introspective eighth house, a biennial transit that runs from October 4 to November 19. Emotions have been hitting you hard (we know: for a change!) or you’ve experienced a strong desire for privacy, that’s why. A lot of deep transformational forces are at play, and unfortunately, with relentless Mars at the helm, there’s been no avoiding those. Until November 19, Mars will keep heating up this zone of sex, secrets and shared resources, which could spice up the boudoir action or amplify your money-manifesting powers. You may be navigating the stress of a large expense. An investment, real estate or financial matter could pay dividends, but it will come with many demands.
Watch your temper on November 5, when a volatile square forms between Mars and powermonger Pluto, which is in Capricorn and your eleventh house of teamwork and technology. Jealousy could break out between friends or a simmering intragroup rivalry might reach a meltdown point. Do your best to stay out of the controversy. Attempts to mediate may backfire, so let the drama queens and divas settle their own issues without you! If you have to protect any legal rights or intellectual property, that’s a different story (you’ll still need to stay out of the low-vibe conflict, though). Call an attorney and handle your strategy on the downlow instead of getting sucked into any interpersonal scuffles. This square could also crank up some sexy tension with a friend or coworker. Think VERY carefully before crossing that line.
Clarity and open communication will arrive at the November 12 Taurus full moon, which beams into your expressive third house. Even better? La luna will be supported by a harmonious trine from both Pluto and mature Saturn in Capricorn and your collaborative eleventh house. NOW you can have the productive conversations, brainstorming sessions and solution-driven chats with your crew, Pisces. Keep talk focused on a common mission and stay out of the blame game. While you can “lead by example” and take responsibility for your transgressions, don’t demand or expect that of anyone else. Proactive and forward-moving is the way to go.
Got an exciting idea for a shared project? The moon-Saturn-Pluto trine will help you put technology solutions in place that can make this even bigger, anything from a social media campaign to an email blast. This full moon can make a budding dynamic duo official. However, you may want to wait a week for Mercury to turn direct (forward) before signing any contracts. Legally binding agreements can get foiled by Mercury’s mischief. Read the fine print carefully, a couple times over. With Mercury retrograde opposing this moon, extra caution is warranted. Keep the snarky comments to yourself—and off email, chat or text threads. Listen more than you talk.
The relief from biting your tongue will arrive on November 19, when go-getter Mars zooms into Scorpio until January 3, heating up your visionary ninth house for the rest of the year. Go big with those entrepreneurial ideas! Once Mercury makes a positive pivot the next day, you’ll have license to speak your truth and pursue those supersized dreams and schemes. Just don’t do it on November 24, when Mars faces off with disruptor Uranus and tempers can be hair-trigger. At this Mars-Uranus opposition, your knee-jerk reactions and general nervous energy makes it hard to communicate your point effectively.
When the Sun starts its monthlong visit to Sagittarius and your ambitious, success-driven tenth house on November 22, you’re ready to put lofty ideas into a real project plan, with budgets, timelines and action steps. The November 26 Sagittarius new moon marks one of the year’s most pivotal career moments for you. If you’re ready to start pursuing a new role or goal, or even a completely new path, this is the green light to begin that mission. When your ruling planet Neptune ends a five-month retrograde in Pisces on November 27, your confidence and charisma return in spades. Unlock the “mute” button and turn up the volume on a passion project now!
Thanksgiving weekend in the U.S. is chock-full of social energy and group connections. On Thursday, November 28, the moon, attractor Venus, structured Saturn and alchemist Pluto are ALL clustered in Capricorn and your collaborative eleventh house. It’s the perfect time to come together with like-minded innovators for a common mission, or least look for synergies along those lines with relatives. (You might just be pleasantly surprised!) The eleventh house rules humanitarian efforts, so meet friends for a couple hours of holiday volunteer work instead of just a boozy brunch. You can catch up while you stack donated canned goods or make decorations for a charity benefit party. That’s how your compassionate Pisces soul likes to roll anyway. And it’s a sneak preview of what’s to come because on December 2, abundant Jupiter will zoom into Capricorn for a year, making for one of the most outgoing and team-spirited years you’ve had in more than a decade. Why do it alone when you can have a blast making positive and impactful things alongside kindred spirits? Victory is so much sweeter when you share it!
LOVE & ROMANCE:
The month finds you unusually intense and focused, especially when it comes to love. Amorous Venus is vaulting through Sagittarius and your goal-driven tenth house from November 1 to 25, turning your thoughts to the future. And with intensifying Mars in your eighth house of sex, merging and emotional vulnerability until November 19, it could be extremely challenging to keep strong feelings at bay. Emotions run the gamut from jealousy and obsessiveness to a burning passion that’s so strong you can’t even think about the outcome. With Mars in this heat zone, lust or anger can quickly override common sense. Make sure to have plenty of healthy outlets to prevent a reactive meltdown and a messy cleanup job.
Your fun-loving side returns on November 19, when the randy red planet relocates to Scorpio and your expansive ninth house until January 3, 2020. Mars in this big-picture zone will snap you out of tunnel vision and help you see all the amorous options and adventures that await. No more brooding and obsessing allowed! If you’re suddenly craving more independence and space, this is why. Explore the liberating energy of this cycle, which will carry you into the new year—and decade!
An exciting moment comes on November 24, when auspicious Venus and Jupiter conjunct in Sagittarius, something that only happens once every 12 years. Couples can take their union to a whole new level—hello “power couple.” You might even hatch an idea for a business together, and you’ve got “empire” dreams that could put Cookie and Lucious Lyon to shame. A budding relationship could get serious, but you’ll feel supported and expansive within that structure, ready to say “yes” without feeling claustrophobic. In this case, a commitment allows you to gain MORE freedom. It’s a paradox, but one Pisces understand well!
On November 25, Venus sails into Capricorn until December 20, activating you social eleventh house. Friends could become lovers, and for longtime couples, focusing on the more lighthearted side of your union will make the holiday season bright. Go mingle as a duo with mutual friends and save the intense one-on-ones for your New Year’s Eve plans!
November 5: Mars-Pluto square
Watch out for the “compare and despair” syndrome that can strike when you hold your relationship status up to others people’s. If you’re not content, don’t complain. Think about things you have control over and take action. And should you be a little jealous of someone else’s situation, let it inspire you to set that kind of intention for yourself.
MONEY & CAREER:
Too much of a good thing is just…too much. November could be distraction central for the first three weeks, much to your chagrin. With motivator Mars in Libra and your focused eighth house of wealth, joint ventures and investments, you’ve got the stamina to power through a detailed project that could pay big bucks. But your tunnel vision gets blurred by Mercury, the planet of communication and technology, which is retrograde (backward) in Scorpio and your expansive ninth house until November 20. Just as you sit down to concentrate, someone introduces a big curveball idea, or there’s a meeting you have to go to, or your lengthy and looming to-do list gets you all stressed out.
Do your best to concentrate but know that you’ll need to work around (and with) this tricky transit. And watch what you say! Loose-lipped Mercury in your outspoken ninth house could have you blurting, tweeting and posting things you can’t easily take back. If you must clear the air or make a big announcement, save it for the November 12 Taurus full moon, which will beam through your third house of self-expression. (To be safe, run your messaging by a friend or a pro advisor first!)
Biting your tongue could have a payoff when charismatic and driven Mars zooms into Scorpio from November 19 to January 3, heating up your ninth house of entrepreneurship, travel and risk-taking. Once you get the all-clear from Mercury, you can go as big and wide as you desire! And don’t think your efforts will go unnoticed. On November 22, the Sun starts its annual four-week sojourn into Sagittarius and your career zone, stoking your ambition and putting your accomplishments in lights. The November 26 Sagittarius new moon could bring an exciting offer or a peak career moment, whether that means record-breaking Black Friday sales or clarity around your professional path you can pursue in the new decade.
November 13: Mercury-Neptune trine
You’re tapping into some higher wisdom today, which is like an ace up your sleeve. The challenge is that you can’t exactly explain where you’re getting your intel from! Your job is simply to convey the info or point of view clearly and convincingly, and then it doesn’t matter the source. This is also a great day to break through any creative blocks.
