November won’t be the easiest month of this year. Still, everybody else faces similar trends, while you are at your most resourceful when squaring up to a challenge. By way of compensation, a largely benevolent universe dictates that times of adversity are also periods of opportunity, for those who are willing to tackle the issues raised and to seek out alternative solutions. Your self-expression is at the heart of these issues, including how fully you believe you are appreciated for your contribution, talents and abilities. Where your duties and obligations undermine and negate your potential, it is time for a more equitable state of affairs.

april 20 - may 20
Your relationships have gradually been sorting themselves out, although this process has overwhelmingly been one of consolidation and elimination, rather than expansion and increase. But to imagine there has been no growth at all, wouldn’t be correct. Certain important associations are on a more solid footing than they were when this process began, although mainly there is the sense of an important chapter coming to a close, leaving you a little bewildered about what lies around the corner. While the fallout from the past still needs you to address loose ends, this coming phase will be characterised by fresh hope for the future.

In an average year, there is one new moon and one full moon in your constellation. These occur roughly six months apart and this month, the full moon on November 25 is in your sign. Just as the peak of the lunation cycle is a point of culmination for those following the growing Moon, so symbolically it is a turning point for decisions you took around your birthday. Although the influence of our satellite always works, on an emotional rather than more objective basis, back then you resolved to do things differently. Now you have the space and time to judge how successful you’ve been and also, where any additional updates fit…

june 21 - july 22
November has a few obstacles in store, not only for you but for a number of others too. How you deal with these is fundamentally your concern, but a proactive approach gets you further than trying to dodge the issue. This suggests that where any interpersonal difficulties arise, it is no use waiting for others to gain enlightenment. Rather, you are better to anticipate they’ll be looking for a battle, although they won’t express this overtly or in a straightforward manner. Be prepared to stand up for your concerns; but know where to draw the line between the justified defence of your interests, versus throwing your weight about.

November sees you re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere and your return to the realm of mere mortals, after the fairy-tale existence you’ve been living recently. Console yourself that you still have plenty on your side, while from an economic perspective you will find any efforts you initiate to improve your income, proving more rewarding than you might have expected otherwise. But the key to your success this month, is to remind yourself about the role others play. Especially where your family and those who ensure the foundations of your life stay supportive are concerned, the need for continued communication proves vital.

august 23 - september 22
Helpful influences early in November, enable you to set the record straight and also, to get a few ideas far clearer in your own mind as well. These point the way to a more socially acceptable and less isolated position overall, as you endeavour to plough your own furrow, without alienating those who matter to you most. You are traditionally a mutable sign, which suggests that conversation and social intercourse, ought always to feature near the top of your agenda and on your list of priorities. This doesn’t mean pontificating endlessly about yourself, but listening to what others have to say, then adding your own input to the mix…

september 23 - october 22
Venus and Mars are planets with a big part to play in any human interaction. Often this is most apparent in a love relationship, but any connection that engenders strong feelings and a wholehearted commitment, will be similarly affected. Many people have heard about Venus, as the mythological planet of love. Mars is traditionally linked with aggression and warfare, but in a world where the latter is fast losing its charm, it is energy and ardour that are brought to the fore. No association can ever be entirely without discord. Yet a protracted silence creates a more enduring degree of animosity, than a frank exchange of views ever will.

october 23 - november 21
A cosmic focus on your sign this month sees you uncharacteristically in two minds. Firstly, you are delighted that the world beyond your window, finally appears to pay some regard to your sensibilities and concerns. Yet at the same time, being thrust into the limelight is a long way from the conditions you’d envisaged heading forwards, for your continuing growth. At the end of the day it is a balancing act, where on one level you are happy to command the full attention of the universe, while on the other the changes that are happening behind your pubic fa├žade, remain too extensive and numerous to reveal immediately…

november 22 - december 21
Don’t mention Saturn. Duh, too late already, since it’s like talking about the wallpaper with an elephant in the room. Truth is, there will be a number of distractions from what you probably imagine could only ever be a depressing and oppressive influence, during the latter part of this month and through to the middle of December. But neglecting the import of this subliminal trend is to do yourself no favours, while you will also tend to magnify the downside of these auguries. You reckon Saturn is the original party-pooper, but there is much that it can teach you about letting go of the past and focussing your attention on the future…

Pluto continues to form stress aspects during November. It would be prudent to remind yourself of this planet’s beleaguered status during the final two weeks of the month especially, so that you don’t allow yourself to become embroiled in power struggles, to get locked in to a battle that you cannot hope to win, or find yourself defending a position that is impossible to justify. You may be convinced you hold the moral high ground, along with all the cards too. But your influence pales compared to the power of the collective, while it is just part of the human condition, for there always to be someone smarter and meaner than you.

An emphasis on the sign of Virgo as November commences, gives way to Sagittarius as this period draws to a close. These shifting trends are very welcome so far as you’re concerned, since the Archer has more in common with your constellation than the Maiden could ever muster. A serious and introspective mood is replaced by a happier frame of mind, with the accent on the fulfilment of your aspirations rather than on deep psychological complexities. As you come to terms with troublesome influences from your past, you’ll look towards the future with a greater optimism, rather than just feeling weakened by whatever occurred…

Neptune and Chiron in your region of the heavens, start to move forward through the zodiac again, ending a retrograde cycle that began last June. If you have felt since this juncture that important developments were either on hold, or had actually lost ground compared to the progress you’d made previously, you can see how in fact you weren’t far wrong, since the course of events fits the movements of these planets so precisely. Neptune is linked with idealism and becoming, the sort of individual you’ve always hoped you could be. Chiron suggests healing long-standing hurts, gaining wisdom and understanding into the bargain.
