Monthly Horoscope: Venus Retrograde Ends as Mercury Retrograde Begins This November

The planets are busy this month, and Venus retrograde ends right as Mercury retrograde begins!

Scorpio season brings a transformative new moon, and Venus retrograde ends right as Mercury retrograde begins. Sagittarius season finds us opening up to new ideas, and important perspectives arrive, thanks to the full moon in Gemini. Lucky planet Jupiter enters a new sign! What will it mean for you? Find your sign below to read all about what November has in store for you:

Scorpio

You’re celebrating life during a season when all zodiac signs celebrate the souls of those who have passed before us—Halloween has come and gone, and the veil is thinning. Your solar return this year is unique, as Venus—the planet of love, beauty, money, and values—is retrograde in Libra until November 16, stirring up issues from September of this year and way back from autumn 2010 (the last time Venus was retrograde in this sign). Venus began its retrograde in Scorpio on October 5, and on Halloween, it reentered Libra, shifting your focus from yourself, like how you look and present yourself and who you are in relationships, to more behind-the-scenes issues like secret affairs, your dream world, spiritual practice, and subconscious mind. Things may shift with a secret crush now, or perhaps something that you haven’t been able to see clearly about yourself will come to the surface.

Of course, there are still a few days left of Scorpio season after November 16…which will find Mercury retrograde! No, this isn’t a cruel joke from the universe, Scorpio. Mercury retrograde is a chance to pause and review the lessons you have learned while Venus was retrograde. Taking things “slow and easy” isn’t always your style, but sometimes that’s exactly what’s best! Mercury retrograde is actually pretty wonderful unless you try to work against its energy—expect delays (so take your time!), don’t make big purchases (use what you have!), watch out for miscommunications (keep things simple!), and hold off on signing contracts if you can.

Because this Mercury retrograde is in extravagant Sagittarius and activating the financial sector of your chart, you can bet that money will be an especially important topic during this time—make sure not to lose your wallet and avoid making important investments. Venus retrograde’s forward motion through Libra will find you resting up, getting ready to reemerge after some private time away, so honor Mercury retrograde by keeping your phone turned off and focusing on quality alone time until December 3, when Venus reenters your sign.

On November 6, a wonderfully creative energy will flow as the sun—the source of life—connects with the planet of dreams and fantasy, Neptune (currently in fellow water sign Pisces), making this a wonderful time to work on your artistic projects, but also to connect on a spiritual, emotional, and empathetic level with the people you have fun and/or sleep with. Also on November 6, Uranus will reenter Aries, bringing scheduling issues to the surface (especially ones that you thought you had resolved earlier this year), as well as pushing you to kick old habits and try some new, and even unusual, ways to make your life healthier.

You hit a rocky road in your relationships toward the second half of spring 2018, and Uranus in Aries will offer you a chance to step back from the fray and think about how your day-to-day responsibilities and self-care routines (or lack thereof) contribute to the dynamic in your relationships. I don’t say this to put all of the responsibility on you—relationships take two! While you do this inner work, your partners will also have to look at the ways they shoot themselves in the foot with unconscious behavior or with their own immature spontaneity.

A new moon in your sign, Scorpio, arrives on November 7, offering a fresh start—the phoenix rises from the ashes! Make time for self-care on this day, little scorpion: spend time with your best friends, your sexiest lovers, and cook your favorite meals. Love yourself deeply and thoroughly. Leave no inch of yourself un-cherished. If you find yourself feeling frustrated because you feel like you don’t know what’s next for you, remember the message of the new moon: What’s next is up to you. Set your imagination free. Stay open to all possibilities and don’t limit yourself by entertaining paranoid fantasies.

Another important date to watch for is November 8, when Jupiter enters Sagittarius—a huge shift in your life will take place as the planet of luck and expansion activates the financial sector of your chart! The last time you experienced this blessing was way back in 2006 and 2007. Between now and December 2, 2019, when Jupiter enters Capricorn, you will undergo a major growth spurt around not just money, but also self-esteem, as your confidence soars—you know your worth! This is a wonderful time to learn more about investing and budgeting.

Venus retrograde connects with one of your ruling planets, Mars, on November 9, creating a gentle yet productive flow for processing deeply emotional issues. Things you’ve pent up are able to be released and left in the past. Memories may resurface that help you make sense of your current situation. The mood goes from soft and sensitive to take-charge: The sun connects with your other ruling planet, Pluto, on November 11, which will be an especially powerful day for communicating and negotiating.

Mars connects with Uranus on November 15, bringing unexpected surprises, especially at home or at work, before Mars enters fellow water sign Pisces on November 15, igniting the romance and creativity sector of your chart—exciting! Mars squares off with Jupiter on November 19, which could be an incredibly passionate and inspiring time; however, keep your temper in check and keep in mind that over-the-top drama could arrive!

The sun enters Sagittarius on November 22, bringing your focus fully to finances and self-worth, and the full moon in Gemini arrives on November 23, which will illuminate issues concerning money—especially debts, taxes, and inheritances. This is a very powerful full moon on an emotional level, too. Gemini is a sign that’s all about communication, and on the downside, it’s a sign that can be nervous or prone to overthinking…hmm, that sounds like a little scorpion I know when they get anxious and ruminate—especially when it comes to sex, intimacy, and trust! The key? Don’t cling! Full moons are a time to release. Let go, let go, let go. It can be very hard to release a thought that’s spinning in your mind—Gemini energy knows this well. Visualize the thought running through you, as if your body were a waterfall. And, if the thought returns, watch the water carry it away again. Another key? The moon in Gemini says: I feel comforted (moon) by communicating (Gemini). Find a trusted friend you can vent to.

Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces on November 24, finding you lost in your art and your love life, in both the best and worst sense of the word. Do your best to stay grounded, but hey, love and art are some of the best things in life, so if you need to get lost for a bit, it might be quite healing!

The sun, Mercury, and Jupiter align on November 26 and 27, bringing a dash of good luck around cash and a boost in confidence before Mercury squares off with Mars on November 26, creating a fiery and impulsive mood around communication—watch out for tempers or bratty behavior! Productive energy will flow as Mars connects with Saturn on November 27. Also on this day, Venus opposes Uranus, challenging your expectations but also finding you eager to break free of your usual routine—a change has come! Good luck this month, and see you in December, Scorpio!

Sagittarius

November opens with the sun in Scorpio, the sign of mystery, and you, Sagittarius, love a mystery! You’re the explorer of the zodiac, and Scorpio season finds you exploring one of the most mysterious realms—your inner psyche. This is a marvelous time for dream work, psychic development, and meditation. You’re feeling extra sensitive, so catch up on rest and time alone. Secrets are shared and hidden places and deep emotions are explored.

On November 6, the sun connects with dreamy planet Neptune, encouraging you to express yourself and your emotions through your creativity, connect with your ancestors, spend time with your loved ones, embrace change and the healing it brings, bury pain from your childhood and past, and enjoy the quiet comfort of peaceful nights at home, in private, away from the world. I know this sounds sweet and relaxing to most people, Sagittarius, but I think there’s a possibility that this paragraph may have bored you—don’t worry, dear centaur. Plenty of drama and excitement will arrive, also on November 6, when electric Uranus reenters fiery Aries. A crush or creative project that you graduated from (or let’s be real, totally forgot about) late last spring will reenter your life. A chance to party harder than you’ve been able to in these last few months will also come your way. Enjoy!

A new moon in Scorpio arrives on November 7, encouraging you to go deeply into your subconscious mind; perhaps through dream work or in therapy. This is a powerful time to develop your intuitive abilities, and if you find yourself feeling lost, remember that new moons are new beginnings, and sometimes when things are so new, it’s hard to see what will come next because so much is up in the air.

Jupiter enters your sign on November 8, for the first time since 2007! Lucky planet Jupiter, which happens to be your ruling planet, will be in Sagittarius, helping you grow in fantastic ways until December 2, 2019. That said, if anyone knows this lesson, it’s you: Too much of a good thing isn’t always great. As more opportunities come your way and resources become available to you, you will also need to match the energy by becoming more responsible as well as practicing boundaries and saying no once in a while. Jupiter is the planet of luck, but we all know that bad things can happen to good people. Jupiter is concerned with justice, so if you find that a rotten situation happens to come out of something that seemed rosy, make sure to connect with people in your community and with counselors you trust. Jupiter, as lucky as it may be, casts a wide net, so don’t blindly stick your hand into what seems to be Jupiter’s bounty or else you might find yourself pulling out a lump of poop instead a nugget of gold. Be open to the blessing, but be smart about how you navigate all these new experiences.

Mars enters Pisces on November 15, activating the home and family sector of your chart. You may be moving or renovating your home—and Mars will give you all the fire you need to get it done. On an emotional level, you’re reflecting on what home, safety, and privacy mean to you. Venus retrograde in Libra ends the following day, November 16, which also happens to be when Mercury retrograde begins in your sign! Venus’s retrograde in Libra is major for working out what’s important in your friendships and on a bigger level, for figuring out what you want your future to look like—and what you want your society’s future to look like, too! It will surely teach you a lot about how you want to get involved in your community on a social and political level. Mercury retrograde is lame in that things slow down, but it’s also brilliant in that way! Take your time. Don’t sign new contracts, don’t make big or expensive purchases, and avoid traveling if you can, what with all the delays. You’ll find yourself speaking your mind about things you previously couldn’t or wouldn’t say (rare for you, but it happens) and you’re likely to run into people from your past.

The sun enters your sign, Sagittarius, on November 22—happy solar return! That’s happy birthday in astrologer speak. You always throw the best parties, and this year’s is sure to be over-the-top thanks to jovial Jupiter being in your sign. You’re feeling revitalized with the sun’s return to Sagittarius and ready to take on whatever comes your way—like the full moon in Gemini which arrives the next day, on November 23! This full moon is major for your relationships, especially around communication. A climax will take place in your partnerships, choices will be made, some endings are possible, and, ultimately, you’ll gain a clearer understanding of what fair give-and-take in relationships really looks like for you.

Hazy, dreamy, whimsical Neptune ends its retrograde on November 24, calling you back home. It’s time to get lost in a book, in your kitchen baking your favorite dish, or in your family albums. Get lost in your own imagination as you meditate and enjoy connecting with your spiritual guides and ancestors. You’re an adventurer, Sagittarius, and this month will bring you many opportunities for travel—both in the world, thanks to Jupiter entering your sign, and within your own spirit, too.

Circle November 26 and 27 on your calendar—this is when the sun, and then Mercury, will meet with Jupiter. Your confidence will be very high and you’ll be pulling in some magnificent opportunities. An important conversation will take place. Good luck, and see you in December!

Capricorn

The veil is thin, but your patience is thinner: Venus, the planet of love, beauty, money, and values, is retrograde in Libra, the sign of balance, finding you realizing some crucial needs you have regarding your career, professional goals, and reputation. With the sun in Scorpio, opportunities to network will come your way, and the new moon in Scorpio on November 7 will start a new cycle in your social life. All this takes place just after the sun connects with dreamy Neptune on November 6, bringing you news of healing, connection, and inspiration. Also on this day, electric Uranus reenters Aries, stirring up changes in your home and family life and finding you revisiting issues you thought you moved on from late last spring.

Jupiter enters fire sign Sagittarius on November 8, where it will stay until December 2, 2019, at which point Jupiter will enter your sign, Capricorn. This is the first time Jupiter will be in Sag since 2007: What was happening in your life at that time? Expect similar themes to resurface now, but remember that you are older and wiser, so you’ll be able to work with the energy in a new way! Some advice? Jupiter in Sagittarius is a key time to develop your intuitive abilities and immerse yourself in dream work. A lot of deep inner exploration will take place during this time.

The sun in Scorpio connects with Pluto, currently in your sign, on November 11, finding you connecting with important people—intriguing ideas will be shared! Important conversations take place as Mars enters Pisces on November 15, revving up the communication sector of your chart. On a mundane level, this is a powerful time to plow through paperwork, and emotionally, this is again a potent time to get in touch with your intuitive abilities and develop a deeper connection with your inner voice. Mars is the planet of war, so some anger may bubble to the surface, and as Mars in Pisces lights up the communication sector of your chart, understanding your own feelings will help you voice your needs in a productive way, rather than arguing with people and getting into frustrating situations where conversations go in circles—as they sometimes can when Pisces energy is in the air. Watch for what conversations arise as Mars and Jupiter clash on November 19.

Speaking of communication, Mercury, the planet of the mind, begins its retrograde in Sagittarius on November 16, which happens to be the same day Venus retrograde ends! Mercury retrograde can be brutal when it comes to miscommunications—this one is especially so for you, dear sea goat. Mercury retrograde is always a great time to slow down and focus on projects you previously had to put on the back burner; however, this particular Mercury retrograde is urging you to totally take time off, catch up on sleep, and give yourself a chance to really reboot.

Mercury is the planet of the mind, but our minds have to rest sometimes, and that’s exactly what Mercury retrograde has us do! Let yourself sleep in, and give yourself some slack to take off from work. Avoid signing contracts if you can—which might be frustrating for you, Capricorn, because you love taking care of business, especially since Venus retrograde’s end will find you moving forward with issues concerning your career that you’ve been hoping to advance. Be mindful as you travel, too, since Mercury retrograde is famous for delays and not a fantastic time to make big purchases, as you may change your mind later. Sagittarius is a sign that loves to travel and usually has a fantastic inner compass; however, be sure that your phone is charged and bring an extra paper map with you just in case you’re someplace new and you lose reception! Mercury retrograde is also known as a time when we run into people from our past, and this one in particular, Capricorn, will not only find you running into friends (and lovers) from long ago, but also rediscovering or reexamining buried secrets.

The sun enters Sagittarius on November 22, and the full moon in Gemini follows on November 23, which will bring a situation concerning your day job, your wellness habits, or your daily routine to a climax. Ways you have been shooting yourself in the foot will become apparent. Important changes to your schedule may arrive now, and new information comes to light that helps you figure out how to live a life that makes more sense—just don’t be shocked if Mercury retrograde means it takes a moment to implement any changes you want to make!

Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces on November 24, again boosting your intuitive abilities. A healing heart-to-heart takes place. Is this a great time to make commitments or important decisions? No. But it’s a wonderful time to paint, tell jokes, and have a late night conversation about your feelings with a friend and have some big laughs. Breaking out your tarot deck or journal is also a wonderful idea.

Action planet Mars connects with your ruling planet Saturn on November 27, creating a wonderfully productive energy at the end of the month. Mars in Pisces can be a scattered energy…or even kind of lazy! Mars is the planet of war, but Pisces is more about peace and love. With Saturn’s grounded support and guidance, this energy can be used effectively! This is a good time to set boundaries and discuss commitments; but again, remember that Mercury is retrograde, so the terms may change down the line. Good luck this month, Capricorn, and see you in December!

Aquarius

The sun is casting a bright spotlight on you and the sector of your chart that rules worldly success and your public life! A fantastic opportunity—a dream come true—arrives on November 6, when the sun connects with Neptune, the planet of imagination, especially concerning your career and your finances. An exciting conversation takes place as your ruling planet Uranus reenters Aries, bringing an issue from last spring back into your life. All of this, plus Venus is retrograde in Libra, will find you reconsidering some long-held values—what’s important to you is changing, your career path is leading you to new places, and information that was missing will unexpectedly come your way early this month.

A new moon in water sign Scorpio arrives on November 7, bringing a fresh start to your career. This is a powerfully creative time, and a potent time for manifestation. Scorpio is the sign of transformation and you, Aquarius, are the genius and the inventor of the zodiac, so you’ll surely be able to whip up some fantastic ideas, plans, and successes during this new moon. New moons in general—and especially in psychic Scorpio—ask us to get in touch with our intuition, so make time for meditation and journaling to help yourself open up to your inner wisdom.

Lucky planet Jupiter enters fire sign Sagittarius on November 8, bringing blessings to the sector of your chart that rules your social life—between now and December 2, 2019 when Jupiter enters Capricorn, you will find your social circle expanding. Exciting! Sagittarius is the visionary of the zodiac, and as the planet of growth and expansion moves through this sign, you will be inspired to chase after new dreams. So many exciting ideas will be shared, and this is an absolutely phenomenal time to get involved in your community and fight for social and political causes you believe in. Because you’re so “wacky” and “weird” it’s not mentioned by astrologers how often you can actually get caught in ruts—but it’s true. As open to new ideas and as unique of a person you are, you can get stuck in routines and funks, and it sucks—you don’t like it! Jupiter in Sagittarius will get things moving if you have been feeling trapped.

November 15 is a busy day: Mars connects with one of your ruling planets, Uranus, before leaving your sign to enter Pisces. An exciting conversation will take place, one that you may have been waiting to have for a long while. A spontaneous energy is in the air, and brilliant flashes of insight come your way. Mars entering Pisces will rev up the financial sector of your chart, helping you stick up for what you’re worth and acquire the resources you need. The funny thing about Mars in Pisces? Pisces is all about peace and love, while Mars is the planet of war, so, sometimes this can feel like a mismatched energy…but, it can also manifest as a deep well of inner fortitude—the strength to withstand anything. Pisces is the ocean—what can Mars’s kicks, screams, punches, and even swords do the ocean? Not much. Pisces may be peaceful but it’s also pretty impenetrable. Mars in Pisces doesn’t attack, it lives and lets live, reacting to the environment as called for, whether that’s a tidal wave or peaceful waves lapping at the shore. Don’t fuck with Mars in Pisces, no matter how laidback and doused in patchouli we may think this sign is. Also circle November 27 on your calendar—this is when Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces, which will be a day of increased intuition and creativity, especially in the realm of money and self-worth for you, Aquarius.

Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius begins on November 16, the same day Venus retrograde in Libra ends. Venus retrograde’s end will bring some blessings—or at least some silver linings—your way in issues you’ve been working through concerning your love life and money—especially when it comes to long distance relationships, financing school, or around getting on the same page with your loved ones about core values and beliefs. Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius is sure to find you running into old friends and revisiting communities or groups that you once spent time with that you no longer get to connect with much.

Sagittarius is a sign that is known for having a big mouth, so while Mercury is retrograde, be extra mindful of communication—don’t share too much, don’t make promises, and try to avoid contracts. Things are too up in the air, and it’s time to slow down and unwind instead of running around trying to force things to happen. Beware of delays and avoid making expensive or important purchases at this time. Mercury is all about the details, but Sagittarius is looking at the big picture…none of it makes sense! So, Aquarius, sit back, grab a good book, binge-watch a show, catch up with old friends, and don’t take anything too seriously during this time.

The sun enters Sagittarius on November 22, finding you in an especially social mood, and the full moon in Gemini arrives the next day on November 23, bringing a big climax to your love life and your creative life. Gemini is an air sign like you, and highly values communication—this full moon is sure to bring big news or an important conversation your way. If you’re hoping to learn how someone feels about you or if you’re eager to receive feedback about your art, this information may finally come now. Full moons are times for release—this may mean the end of something, but this could also mean release in the best sense: relief.

Action planet Mars connects with your ruling planet Saturn on November 27, creating a productive energy; however, also on November 27, Venus opposes your other ruling planet Uranus, which will bring you some shocking news. This could actually be a fantastic time to throw caution to the wind and take a wild chance at love or in your work—your intuition is especially strong and unexpected support may reveal itself. It’s easy to be spontaneous when you have plenty of encouragement! You’re craving change, and some thrills are sure to come your way. Good luck this month, Aquarius, see you in December!

Pisces

November opens with the sun shining in fellow water sign Scorpio, finding you eager to travel and open up to new situations and opportunities! Deep emotions have been swelling to the surface for you, thanks to Venus’s retrograde in Libra, and issues around intimacy, trust, and money (especially debts, taxes, and inheritances!) have been a big focus. You’re moving through some grief, and the question now is: Are you running away from your problems by creating a vision board for your next trip abroad, or are you genuinely opening up to a new perspective and encouraging your self-growth by putting yourself in a new situation?

November 6 will be an especially creative day for you to work through these issues as the sun will connect with your ruling planet, Neptune. This is a powerful time for manifestation—and cute vibes will flow in your love life and in your creative endeavors, too! Issues around money (and self-esteem) also come up for you to work with, thanks to Uranus reentering Aries on November 6—expect issues from last spring to come up again now!

A new moon in Scorpio arrives on November 7, bringing exciting new opportunities your way. This is a very spiritually-charged new moon for you, and you’re finding yourself excitedly imagining the future—something which may have been hard to do lately with Venus retrograde messing with your love life and your finances. It’s strange, because on one hand, so many things are up in the air…but on the other, that’s exactly what makes this a brilliant time for you to set an intention for how you want things to turn out! The last few weeks have really driven home what’s important to you.

Us astrologers often call Pisces the most “go with the flow” sign, but you certainly have limits, and you’re very clear on them now! This new moon in transformative Scorpio will help you mold things exactly how you want them. There’s a message that you’re eager to share with the world, and this new moon marks the start of this endeavor!

November 8 is definitely a day to circle on your calendar, as your ruling planet Jupiter will change signs. Jupiter leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius for the first time since 2007, bringing big blessings to the career and popularity sector of your chart. Between now and December 2, 2019, Jupiter in Sag will bring brilliant opportunities to stand in the spotlight your way—this is fantastic for your reputation and of course, your career, so if you’ve been hoping for a raise, recognition, or perhaps to start your own company, publish a book, or get promoted, Jupiter in fiery Sagittarius is on your side!

Action planet Mars enters your sign, Pisces, on November 15, bringing you a big boost in energy after a long summer and autumn of feeling like things are out of your control, exhausting, confusing, or simply fucking annoying. Mars in your sign might find you more confrontational than usual, but I think it will also find you feeling more confident—like you can take anything on! You, Pisces, are the ocean. Can anyone fuck with the ocean? Not really. Mars is a combative planet, but in your sign, it’s not in an especially aggressive or confrontational mood…still, trying to battle the ocean is a terrible idea. Mars will square off with Jupiter on November 19, so watch out because a fire will be lit under your ass! Over-the-top drama and impulsivity may also be in the air, so be mindful.

Communication planet Mercury begins its retrograde in Sagittarius on November 16, the same day Venus retrograde ends. Ahh, finally these deep and sensitive issues around sex, love, money, and mourning will begin moving forward. Yes, Mercury retrograde is annoying, but it doesn’t have to be. Mercury is the planet of the mind, and just like your mind needs to rest, Mercury, too, needs to slow down and unwind from time to time. Use this Mercury retrograde to take a break and work on old projects instead of starting new ones. Because of miscommunications and delays, avoid scheduling important meetings, signing contracts, traveling, or making big purchases. So many brilliant professional opportunities will come your way soon, but you need to take time to review exactly what you want the terms to be before you make any commitments.

The sun enters Sagittarius on November 22, shining a big bright spotlight on your professional achievements and your public life. However, the full moon in Gemini on November 23 finds you focused on your home and family—this is a crucial time to create a better balance between your public and private life. Lots of important career opportunities are coming, but this full moon asks that you don’t forget where you came from—and that you remember to take out the trash. After a long day of work, followed by a long night celebrating your accomplishments, you mind find that your home needs serious tending. Both your office and your kitchen need equal love and attention, Pisces. Make time to connect with family. Drama at home, with roommates, your landlord, or even your parents may come to a head.

Your ruling planet Neptune ends its retrograde in your sign on November 24, which is a confusing, yet dreamy and magical time. Neptune is the planet of fog, so if you try to force clarity, don’t expect it to work out well—this is not the week to have the “what are we” conversation, for example! However, it’s an amazing week to make art, focus on your spiritual practice, and connect with yourself—and others—on a deep level.

A burst of activity (plus luck and conversation!) takes place as the sun meets Jupiter on November 26, followed by Mercury meeting Jupiter on November 27. Definitely be cautious of big egos and know-it-alls, but the energy is social and confident, making this a fantastic time to network and show off your talents. Mercury is retrograde, so be mindful that many of the big ideas being shared might not actually come into fruition the way you expect, but that’s okay—just take everything slowly and don’t make any promises you can’t keep! Also on November 27, Venus opposes Uranus, shaking things up in your financial life—an unexpected purchase may take place, but please remember that Mercury is retrograde, so watch out for impulse buys! That said, you might also have a sudden flash of insight about how you want to be valued in your relationships—don’t settle for anything less than what you know you deserve! Good luck this month, dear fish, and see you in December!

Aries

Welcome to Scorpio season, Aries! You and Scorpio are the two signs that are ruled by Mars, so if you find yourself attracted to (or, who knows, totally repelled by) the Scorpios you meet, it’s certainly in part due to this kinship of the planetary ruler you share, despite your differences. Scorpio season is a very intense time for you, especially emotionally. You’re finding yourself doing deep personal work. If you’re not already in therapy, this is a brilliant time to go and explore your psyche and heal old wounds. Scorpio is the sign of transformation, and you have plenty of change to work through. You tend to rush through life—but are you really ready to leave the past behind? I think you are, dear ram. Scorpio season is also a very important time for you in terms of intimacy and romance, and you’ll be connecting with your partners on a very deep level. Financial issues—like debts, taxes, and even inheritances—are also themes you’re working with.

On November 6, electric planet Uranus reenters your sign, Aries, reigniting a spark within you—you’re feeling spontaneous, wild, and free. But perhaps you’re also feeling a bit fried, frazzled, or shaken up. Things that you thought you left behind last spring come up for you to work with again. Important changes are underway—especially in how you present yourself and relate to the world.

A new moon in Scorpio arrives on November 7, bringing a fresh start to your intimate relationships as well as an opportunity to wipe the slate clean of some debts you may owe. Scorpio is the sign of transformation and this new moon will bring a cleansing new start. Fears of the unknown are likely to bubble to the surface, but that’s okay: sit with these fears, don’t judge or repress them. Connect with people who uplift and encourage you. Trust is an important thing to have now—especially in yourself.

Lucky planet Jupiter enters fellow fire sign Sagittarius on November 8, bringing magnificent opportunities to expand, learn, and travel. This is a spiritually fulfilling time and this upcoming year—until Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 2, 2019—will find you exploring new places and ideas, breaking out of your old routines, and leaving old emotional patterns and grief behind.

An exciting day for your social life and your relationships comes on November 9, when Venus retrograde connects with your ruling planet Mars, making for a passionate atmosphere. Unexpected surprises arrive on November 15, when Mars meets with the wildcard of the zodiac, Uranus. Mars also enters dreamy water sign Pisces on November 15. Pisces isn’t a combative sign, so warrior planet Mars can be a bit awkward in the sign of peace and love! Slow down, Aries. Mars in Pisces asks you to reflect on ways you might be shooting yourself in the foot. You might find yourself more tired than usual, but your dream world and your intuitive abilities will be especially fired up (note what comes up for you on November 19, when Mars squares off with Jupiter).

Astrologers call you confrontational, Aries, but Mars in Pisces is unlikely to find you stirring up many arguments. You’re craving time alone and want to unwind. You’re especially valuing your privacy. In fact, you may even be up to some secret activities right now—not everything needs to be everyone’s business! The fact is that you want your space and time alone to think and rest, especially after a very busy few months at work and in your social life.

Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius begins on November 16, the same day Venus retrograde in Libra ends—is this a cruel joke? No, it’s just how the cosmic cookie crumbles, sometimes! The end of Venus retrograde marks the beginning of you moving forward with a renewed sense of your values, needs, and desires—especially within your relationships, both romantic and professional. Mercury retrograde is a time to slow down, and while in Sagittarius—a sign known for having a big mouth—a time to quiet down, too! Watch out for delays and miscommunications, and be careful if you’re signing contracts, traveling, or having important meetings. Try to avoid making big purchases at this time.

The sun enters Sagittarius on November 22, finding you in the mood for adventure—but remember Mercury is retrograde, so travel (and school!) could be frustrating at this time; double check your itinerary if you find yourself whisked off on a journey! You’re a spontaneous person, but this isn’t time for you to dive into things head first.

The details are important, especially during the full moon in Gemini, which arrives on November 23. A critical conversation will take place during this full moon, and important information you have been waiting for will be illuminated. A situation between you and your siblings may also come to a climax, and action in your neighborhood is likely.

Full moons are all about release, and this is an important one for getting your emotions off of your chest, so call that person you have in mind. This full moon in Gemini lands during Mercury retrograde, so be patient if things work out messily. Also, if a conversation doesn’t go your way, don’t totally give up hope—things may shift once Mercury retrograde ends on December 6, 2018.

Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces on November 24, so watch out for messages that will arrive in your dreams! Mercury squares off with Mars on November 26, and Mars connects with Saturn on November 27—confrontations come up, but commitments are still being made. Mercury retrograde’s clash with Mars finds you engaged in an argument that should have already been cleared up in the worst case scenario, but it may just find you in a fired up mood around communication and eager to get things accomplished. There’s a frustrating sense of lacking direction or information.

Remember: Mercury retrograde is a time to slow down, not speed up, so keep your temper under control. Mars’s connection with Saturn will be productive and help you figure out a strategy or structure move forward, even if things are feeling up in the air.

Exciting and inspiring conversations take place as Mercury meets Jupiter on November 27; however, dear ram, remember that Mercury is retrograde, so don’t make too many solid plans or any promises you can’t keep—so much is sure to change during this time! Changes will take place in your partnerships as Venus opposes Uranus on November 27, stirring up drama and excitement, and inspiring spontaneity and a new way of doing things. You might be surprised to discover what’s important to you and what your feelings are at the end of this month. Good luck Aries, and see you in December!

Taurus

This fall has been absolutely wild in your relationships, not just romantic ones, but even at work. The sun in passionate and emotional water sign Scorpio illuminates the partnership sector of your chart for the first portion of November, and a new moon in Scorpio lands on November 7, bringing a much needed fresh start in all your relationships. A new cycle is here! But, with that, might also come some anxiety about the future. Things are so new that you’re having a hard time imagining what will come next. All you can do, my dear bovine bud, is just stay in the moment. Be present with yourself, your emotions, and your body. Do your best to have fun now.

Yes, your ruling planet Venus is retrograde, which is finding you feeling unlike yourself; however, this is as good a time as any to indulge in self-care—not with bubble baths or pedicures, but in the form of telling someone who keeps asking you for favors to fuck off, or by asking your boss if your schedule could be reconfigured in a way that would help you be more productive, or by pushing yourself to include more exercise or eat healthier foods. I know it’s frustrating to add more things to your to-do list, but you really need to figure out a better way to manage your day-to-day routines and chores. Circle November 9 on your calendar as a productive day to work out issues that may have been feeling stuck—on this day, Venus retrograde will make a harmonious connection with action planet Mars.

November 6 will bring a wake-up call when Uranus reenters Aries, finding you feeling restless—you might have a hard time getting to sleep, or may have wild dreams. But, your intuition is especially activated, so use it—break out your tarot cards, or do some journaling and see what wisdom pours out of your pen. Issues you have ignored (or straight up forgotten about) since last spring are likely to come back up.

Lucky planet Jupiter enters fire sign Sagittarius on November 8 for the first time since 2007, marking the beginning of a profound period of growth in your life, especially around intimacy. This coming year is a powerful time to connect on a deep level with your partners! Blessings in your financial life could also arrive, in the form of a debt being paid off or other complicated matters—like taxes or inheritances, settled.

Jupiter is the planet of growth, and while it often brings luck, when it comes down to it, the function of Jupiter is to expand whatever it touches, so if you’re indulging in horrible habits—carelessly spending on your credit card, for example—don’t expect luck to come your way, instead, watch out for your troubles to multiple. Put your best foot forward and be responsible while Jupiter is in Sagittarius. If you’re in therapy, Jupiter in philosophical Sagittarius is sure to bring some brilliant a-ha moments—this is a phenomenal time to explore your shadow side and heal old trauma.

Warrior planet Mars enters dreamy water sign Pisces on November 15. Does the planet of action feel comfortable in peace-and-love Pisces? Not really, but, this combination of energies can still make magic; and for you, Taurus, Mars in Pisces will activate the social sector of your chart, making this a brilliant time for you to network. This is also a great time to get involved with causes you believe in or to connect with a community that shares your goals and vision for the future.

Mercury retrograde begins in Sagittarius on November 16, the same day that Venus retrograde ends. Mercury retrograde asks us to slow down—no rushing ahead, especially when it comes to intimacy and love, and also money, for you, Taurus! Sagittarius is an indulgent sign; however, Mercury minds the details, and during this retrograde—and as we move into Sagittarius season on November 22— temperance and moderation are important themes to keep in mind and reflect on. Watch out for misunderstandings and delays, and try to avoid travel, signing contracts, or making big purchases during Mercury retrograde. Don’t be surprised if you run into people from your past! Old emotions may resurface for you to work through—things you have been ignoring step out from the shadows for you to process. It’s time to take ownership of your shit, whatever that may be—your fears, your anger, your baggage. Circle November 27 on your calendar—this is when communication planet Mercury will meet Jupiter, making for an especially potent time for communication around these intense and emotional issues.

A release arrives during the full moon in Gemini on November 23, bringing a climax in your life around many of the issues that have been stirred up by Mercury retrograde, and in your sex life, and also around money. A dreamy energy is in the atmosphere, as Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces the next day, on November 24—connect with your friends, Taurus! Keep things simple and don’t overbook yourself—Neptune is the planet of fantasy, so take a little break and let yourself “check out.” Reality is overrated, even more so when Neptune shifts direction, especially if that occurs during Mercury retrograde!

Your ruling planet, Venus, no longer retrograde, opposes wildcard Uranus on November 27, encouraging a change to take place, especially in regards to your everyday habits—the patterns you’re in with your lover around when and where you meet up, the routine you have around work, even your sleep schedule. After this Venus retrograde, you’ve learned a lot about what’s truly important to you and you’re ready to implement some changes. Unexpected issues keep randomly popping up, so you’ve learned how important it is to stay flexible. Allow yourself flexibility at this time, Taurus! Good luck this month, and see you in December!

Gemini

The devil works hard, Scorpio Kris Jenner works harder, but we all know Geminis work the hardest—and it’s in Scorpio season that you cross the most items off your to-do list! You’re super busy during the first portion of this month, dear twin, tackling your chores—but it’s also important that you create time for self-care, like cooking yourself delicious meals, staying hydrated, keeping up-to-date on important gossip with your besties, and striking a healthy, happy balance between time spent at work and time spent enjoying yourself. Scheduling is everything, especially during Scorpio season.

An exceptionally creative day at work arrives on November 6, when the sun connects with imaginative Neptune, and the new moon in Scorpio on November 7 will bring a fresh start at your day job, as well as around your day-to-day routine—wiping the slate clean is a perfect metaphor for what you’ll be up to at this time, which is mainly: getting organized! This is a productive time, but understand that things may be rearranged or reconfigured over the next few weeks. This is due to your ruling planet Mercury beginning its retrograde in Sagittarius on November 16. You’ll find that this upcoming retrograde will shift things, especially in your relationships—romantic and otherwise.

Retrogrades are not great times to make commitments, sign contracts, travel, or make important purchases due to miscommunications and delays; however, you may find that this is an absolutely wonderful time to reconnect with old friends and lovers (you will likely run into a few), and work on projects you previously had to put on the back burner. This Mercury retrograde begins just as Venus retrograde in fellow air sign Libra ends, which has found you learning some big lessons about love, money, creativity, what you value, and how you like to have fun.

Many changes come this month—not only because of the retrogrades, but also because planets are changing signs: Uranus reenters Aries on November 6, Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 8, Mars enters Pisces on November 15, and of course, Sagittarius season begins on November 22.

When Uranus, the planet of surprise and invention, reenters Aries on November 6, it activates the sector of your chart that rules your social life and the communities you work with, making this a brilliant time to network, as well as to reach out to organizations that share your vision of the future—get politically involved! Uranus is all about change, and while it’s in courageous Aries, you feel especially emboldened to gather people together. Uranus’s reentry into Aries will also spark a conversation (or confrontation) you had last spring—a sudden change was made then that is meant to be revisited now.

Lucky planet Jupiter’s entry into Sagittarius on November 8 brings blessings to your relationships (romantic, professional, and platonic) unlike that which you have seen since 2007! Between now and December 2, 2019, Jupiter in Sagittarius will find you making exciting connections and growing deep relationships. This is a very special time for you around partnering, indeed.

You’ll also feel very energized in your career as action planet Mars enters Pisces, igniting the sector of your chart that rules worldly success and your life in public. This is a fantastic time to go for a raise or promotion, and generally to make moves in the world. You have so many different talents and Mars in Pisces will help you flex them all—and bring you the attention you deserve. Just remember that Mercury’s retrograde might find things moving slowly, especially if you have to depend on or work with other people. A big burst of creative inspiration will arrive on November 24, as Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces—however, watch for some confusion on this day, too.

Sagittarius season arrives on November 22, and the full moon in your sign, Gemini, arrives on November 23. Sagittarius season finds the sun shining its spotlight on the relationship sector of your chart, and a big climax in your relationships arrives during the full moon. This full moon is major for reconnecting with your emotions. You’re a logical person, Gemini, but that doesn’t mean you don’t feel your emotions on a very intense level, and during this full moon, you’ll be moved to share what’s in your heart. Venting your feelings to people you love and trust is a great way to use the energy of this full moon—you’re just meant to hold things in right now. Release, release, release! You pride yourself on being flexible and you hate having to make demands or give ultimatums, but a turning point in your relationships is here, and you need to make your feelings and needs known.

The end of the month is especially busy for your ruling planet Mercury, as it will square off with Mars on November 26, meet the sun on November 27, and meet with Jupiter on November 27. Remember, Mercury is retrograde, so even though so much activity is taking place, things may feel up in the air! Mercury is all about the details, but Sagittarius blows through life looking at the big picture—it’s crucial now to make sure you don’t have a big ego or make promises you can’t keep, and to watch out for impulsive behavior. Good luck this month, Gemini, and see you in December!

Cancer

Scorpio season is arguably the sexiest, most creative time of the year for all zodiac signs, Cancer, but it’s especially so for you, as Scorpio season means the sun is lighting up the romance and creativity sector of your chart! The energy is especially dreamy on November 6, when the sun connects with Neptune, the planet of fantasy, creating an absolutely magical atmosphere to spend time with the people you love, make art, and explore the world—you may even be whisked off your feet! Circle November 11 on your calendar as another juicy day to link with people, as the sun meets with passionate Pluto, making for a perfect time to connect on a deep and intimate level—secrets will be shared!

Hoping for a fresh start when it comes to love, your creative projects, or simply to transform your life so you’re able to have more fun? The new moon in Scorpio on November 7 will help you do just that. Scorpio is the sign of transformation, and new moons are the start of a new cycle. This is an exciting time to connect with a crush or embrace a new beginning with the romantic partners you’re already involved with. You’ll be reenergized in your artistic projects, too. This is a powerful new moon for manifesting your desires, especially your desire to enjoy life!

November is also an important month for your career, as electric Uranus will reenter Aries on November 6, activating the sector of your chart that rules worldly success, your professional goals, and your public life. Uranus always brings surprises, so some unexpected events may take place at work—or perhaps you’ll be stunning your fans in a big way!

Lucky planet Jupiter enters fire sign Sagittarius on November 8 for the first time since 2007, where it will stay until December 2, 2019, making this a big year for you professionally—expect to accomplish so much! That is, if you can get organized. Jupiter is the planet of growth, it expands whatever it touches. So, if you’re behaving responsibly and are taking care of business, you can expect many more gigs, clients, and opportunities to come your way—but if you’re indulging in bad habits, Jupiter’s energy might multiply your troubles.

This is also a fantastic time to focus on fitness and wellness, since Jupiter in fiery Sagittarius will bring you both the confidence and energy you need to actually wake up at 5 AM to engage in your meditation practice, go for a walk, or cook up some delicious meals rather than ordering take out. Basically, Jupiter in Sagittarius wants to help you achieve a routine that will support your best self, whether that’s at work or at home.

Action planet Mars enters fellow water sign Pisces on November 15, finding you in an especially adventurous mood, which is welcome after a long summer and autumn of working through many emotionally-charged issues. If you’re traveling, in school, or even publishing something at this time, Mars in Pisces will be especially beneficial.

November opens with Venus retrograde in Libra, finding you reconfiguring things at home—this is a fantastic time to look at your living situation; however, if you’re planning on redecorating, wait until after Venus retrograde ends on November 16. Venus is the planet of values, but also of love, money, and beauty, so any makeovers would have the most powerful effect post-retrograde! Issues with your roommates or your family may have become more intense over the last few weeks, but you’ve learned a lot about what’s important to you.

Venus retrograde ends on November 16, the same day Mercury retrograde begins in Sagittarius, which will find your schedule turned upside down. Don’t overbook yourself, and definitely avoid making promises you can’t keep. Mercury retrograde isn’t the best time to sign contracts, travel, or make important purchases due to delays and miscommunications. It is, however, a fine time to pick back up a project that you had to leave behind for a while.

Sagittarius season begins on November 22, finding the sun illuminating the sector of your chart that rules your daily routines and rituals. You’re feeling inspired to get to work, and with Jupiter’s influence, there are many opportunities coming your way. However, Mercury retrograde is really asking you to take it slow, plus, the full moon in Gemini arrives the next day, on November 23, which will find you totally exhausted—it’s time to quiet down and get some rest!

An issue at your day job is likely to come to a climax during this full moon, and you’ll also find that you need to carve out a better work/rest balance, or else you may burn out. While it’s crucial that you respect your responsibilities, you are ruled by the moon, and the moon has phases—you need alone time as much as you need time in the spotlight, with your friends, at work, or with your lovers. This full moon is asking you to “check out” for a bit—spend time by yourself, meditate, and get some sleep. You’ll have lots on your plate over the next year, but you need to be well-rested if you want to accomplish anything.

New opportunities are coming your way, but take it slow on November 24, when Neptune will end its retrograde in Pisces—this is a highly creative time and a fantastic period to focus on your spiritual practice. But remember that besides being creative and magical, Neptune is the planet of fog and confusion, so keep things light and don’t embark on any major endeavors just yet! Circle November 27 as an especially busy day: The sun, Mercury, and Jupiter will all align, bringing big news and plans your way. Good luck this month, Cancer, and see you in December!

Leo

November opens with the sun in Scorpio—one of the most mysterious signs in the zodiac—and you are finding yourself in a quiet, private mood, feeling nostalgic and eager to connect with your family and to tend to things at home. You’re in an especially sensitive mood as the sun connects with Neptune on November 6, finding you exploring your deepest emotions and examining old baggage. This is a wonderful time for healing! But be careful—Neptune is a creative and whimsical energy, but it’s also the planet of delusion and paranoia. It might be hard to stay grounded early this month—avoid any situation that finds you over-analyzing things or getting into a negative head space!

Uranus reenters fellow fire sign Aries on November 6, which will bring some unexpected and exciting opportunities to travel and learn your way. If you fell as though you’re drowning in a sea of emotions early this month, keep yourself in a good place by creating a vision board about all the places you want to visit—the past is worth revisiting, but you have so many new and unexpected places to go.

A fresh start concerning issues at home and with your loved ones arrives on November 7, with the new moon in Scorpio—this is also an especially wonderful time to clean up your apartment, tend to your altars, and simply make time for yourself to walk down memory lane. As you’re in this sensitive and nostalgic mood, you’ll also find yourself rethinking your feelings about issues like privacy, safety, security, and boundaries. November 11 is a day to circle on your calendar, especially for productivity—your ruling planet, the Sun, will make a harmonious connection with Pluto, helping you tackle your to-do list. You’re in an emotional place early this month, but business is still being managed.

You’ll work through many emotionally-charged issues, especially when action planet Mars enters sensitive water sign Pisces, encouraging you to cut ties with your past and courageously face the unknown. Passion is sure to fire up in your sex life, too, as Mars moves through this sign—deep intimacy is achieved. Pisces is a very psychic, empathetic energy. A profound shift takes place on November 24, as Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces—again, this is a phenomenal time for healing, but you must not get wrapped up in paranoia or delusions. Perhaps don’t binge watch any scary television shows, stick to comedy!

Lucky planet Jupiter enters fellow fire sign Sagittarius on November 8, bringing big blessings to your love life! Expect a big surge of creative inspiration to arrive—Jupiter is the planet of growth, and you’ll be expanding in brilliant ways over the next year or so. Jupiter will be in Sagittarius until December 2, 2019, and over the next year or so, you’ll find yourself having a lot of fun—just be careful not to be too indulgent! This is a fantastic time to meet and date someone new, or if you’re already settled in a partnership or seeing people you have a great time with, expect the fun to continue and for many more happy memories to be made.

Communication isn’t especially easy during this time because Venus, the planet of love, money, beauty, and values, is retrograde in Libra—however, an easy vibe will flow in your relationships on November 9, thanks to Venus connecting with Mars. Venus retrograde won’t last long—it ends on November 16, which happens to be the same day that Mercury, the planet of communication, begins its retrograde. While plenty of fun is in the air, you’ll have to watch out for miscommunications and delays this month. Avoiding making important commitments or signing contracts, traveling, or making big purchases—Mercury is all about the details, except when it’s retrograde and especially in wild and free Sagittarius.

You might find yourself committed to too many celebrations this month—frustrating, but also not the worst thing that could happen! Sagittarius season, aka party season for Leos, officially begins on November 22, and drama soon follows in the form of the full moon in Gemini, which will find you letting go of some friendships or associations that no longer serve you. A climax arrives in your love life, and in your creative endeavors as well.

November 26 and 27 are dates to circle on your calendar, as the sun, Jupiter, and Mercury connect, bringing a boost in confidence and creativity, and important information will come your way—just watch out for know-it-alls! Also on November 27, Mars will connect with Saturn, helping you work through an issue that needed assistance or was coming along awkwardly—reach out for help from someone who has been through that experience, and remember that Mercury is retrograde, so things are likely to continue to shift. Venus will also oppose Uranus on November 27, finding you embracing a change in perspective and bringing exciting news your way. Good luck this month, and see you in December!

Virgo

The sun is illuminating the communication sector of your chart, finding you very busy having important conversations and making decisions at the start of this month. Scorpio is a very intense sign, and as such, the conversations you have will be deep, but it’s more than that: A wonderful and healing connection in your relationships arrives on November 6, as the sun connects with Neptune in your opposite sign, Pisces.

Also on November 6, Uranus reenters courageous fire sign Aries, sparking a need within you to clear yourself of the past. Unexpected emotions bubble to the surface, and an issue from last spring comes up for you to reconsider. The new moon in Scorpio arrives the next day, on November 7, wiping the slate clean around communication. Step back from whatever you have been over-analyzing—taking a nap or forgetting about it completely is likely to bring you the answers you need!

Jupiter, the planet of growth, enters Sagittarius on November 8, bringing big blessings to the home and family sector of your chart. This is the first time that Jupiter will be in Sagittarius since 2007, and between now and December 2, 2019, you can expect many exciting things to happen on the home front: you may be moving (considering Jupiter’s motto is bigger is better, maybe to a bigger space), or your family may be expanding in some way.

This is a busy month on the relationship front: Action planet Mars enters your opposite sign Pisces on November 15, igniting the relationship sector of your chart—expect plenty of movement to take place in your partnerships! Also this month, Neptune will shift directions, ending its retrograde on November 24 in Pisces, again shifting the energy in your relationships—deep, heart-to-heart connections are formed. However, this isn’t the month to make firm commitments or solid plans. Keep things loose—your ruling planet Mercury will retrograde in Sagittarius starting on November 16, finding you contending with miscommunications and delays, as well as running into people from your past and managing issues in your home and with your family. That said, just because things are up in the air or Mercury retrograde brings frustrations, doesn’t mean that the connections you make with people will be less valuable—they will still be totally special! You’ll just need to resist trying to organize your relationships the same way you organize the rest of your life.

Circle November 11 as a date to expect big passion, as the sun in sexy Scorpio will connect with Pluto, the planet of depth—a fantastic time for dirty talk, sharing secrets, or, on a different note, to create some art.

Venus retrograde ends on November 16 (the same day Mercury retrograde begins!). This Venus retrograde has been an interesting time in your love life, as communication issues have proved challenging, yet you’ve also seen an interesting and valuable side to people that you didn’t see before—does it make you like them more? Maybe not, but either way, at least you know now! You have been feeling especially frustrated on the financial and self-esteem front during this Venus retrograde, but by the time it is over, you will be very clear about how you want things to move forward, and you’ve learned some valuable lessons about standing up for what you’re worth! As a Virgo, you love helping others, but you simply can’t do it to the detriment of yourself, your time, or your energy.

The sun enters Sagittarius on November 22 and illuminates the home and family sector of your chart. Sagittarius season is a wonderful time for you to energetically cleanse your home, gather with old friends and family, indulge in nostalgia, connect with your ancestors, and engage in your spiritual practice. The full moon in Gemini on November 23 will be major for your career, as a climax will take place and you’ll find that you need to build a better balance between your private and public life. Themes like privacy and boundaries, popularity, and your reputation will be on your mind.

Libra

November opens with your ruling planet Venus retrograde in your sign, Libra. Venus retrograde can be very frustrating because you don’t feel like yourself, and worse, you’re bored of your favorite things in life: love, shopping, and your own reflection! But this is a crucial time for you, even though it’s so annoying. You’re learning a lot about your boundaries and what’s valuable to you—not to mention getting a few lessons about money!

Things might be feeling a bit stuck right now, but November promises to bring plenty of change: On November 6, Uranus reenters Aries, stirring up relationship issues from last spring (not just romantic partnerships, but professional or platonic ones, too). Uranus is the wildcard of the zodiac, and with its reentry into fire sign Aries, you can bet some unexpected things will take place in your relationships.

But let’s chat more about money: November opens with the sun in Scorpio, illuminating the financial sector of your chart. You’re a generous person, Libra, and you’re usually pretty smart with money. It also helps that you have a knack for finding things at an excellent price, and are lucky when it comes to inheriting items from friends and family. The most valuable things in your life, Libra, are your relationships, not your bank account—but even so, you do your best to be savvy about your budget. Venus retrograde began last month in Scorpio and now that it’s Scorpio season, money is squarely on your mind, as are issues concerning security and self-worth. A new moon in Scorpio arrives on November 7, wiping the slate clean around all these themes!

On November 8, lucky planet Jupiter enters fire sign Sagittarius (where it will stay until December 2, 2019), bringing big news your way! Jupiter in Sagittarius will find you exploring many new ideas over the next year, and likely doing quite a bit of traveling, too, especially weekend trips or other kinds of short journeys.

Your ruling planet Venus connects with Mars on November 9, which will bring some passion and excitement during this tiresome retrograde. A shift in energy arrives as Mars enters Pisces on November 15—it’s been a long summer and autumn working through many issues in your love life and creative life, but when Mars enters Pisces, you’ll find that the energy will become much more productive. You’ll find creative solutions to make your everyday routine easier—just watch out for confusion, especially at your day job, on November 24, when Neptune ends its retrograde in Pisces. If you can take the day off to focus on self-care—go for it! If not, focus on projects that require your artistic talents to make the most of Neptune’s creative energy.

Mercury retrograde begins on November 16, the same day Venus retrograde ends. Mercury is the planet of the mind, and as it retrogrades in philosophical Sagittarius, it’s best for you to slow down, rest, hold off on important conversations, and take time to reflect. Work on old projects instead of starting new ones. Avoid signing contracts, traveling, or making important purchases since miscommunication and delays are in the air. Don’t be surprised if you get lost in your own neighborhood—or if you run into people from your past! A sibling may remind you of something important during this retrograde.

The sun enters Sagittarius on November 22, and the full moon in Gemini arrives on November 23: expect lots on conversation to take place! Full moons are all about release, and this release will be very…verbal. Sagittarius is famous for its big mouth, and Gemini? The phrase “blowing up a cell phone” must have stemmed from someone’s experience with a Gemini. Communication is super important to you, but more information than even you can handle might be coming in, so it’s important that you don’t overbook yourself, and especially crucial that you don’t make promises you can’t keep—Mercury is retrograde, after all! Other important dates to keep in mind this month around communication are November 26 and 27, when the sun, Mercury, and Jupiter all align, bringing especially juicy information your way—just watch out for inflated egos and know-it-alls!

Your ruling planet Venus, finally over its retrograde, opposes wildcard Uranus on November 27, bringing some shocks and changes to your life, especially in your relationships. You’re craving something new! The same old ways just don’t work anymore…and if you’ve been giving something a second try, you might find yourself very annoyed that you did. You’ve been here before, and you’re ready for things to be different. While this can certainly be a stressful and unstable time, you can also make the most of this astrological transit by making a conscious effort to experiment and try new things.

“Independence” is a good word for us to end on—it’s something you’re really craving, and Libra, independence never should mean a lack of support, love, or partnership! You can have it all—and someone who makes you feel suffocated is not the right partner for you. So this Venus/Uranus opposition may act as a test—the partnerships that are right for you will weather whatever wacky vibes wildcard Uranus brings your way. Good luck this month, Libra, and see you in December!
