From Ophira and Tali Edut, The Astrotwins.
Turn up the heat, Ram. Until November 21, the Sun is burning through Scorpio, your eighth house of intensity, power and joint ventures. The sexy, sultry vibes can get overwhelming at moments, especially with one particular person. But ultimately, the two of you could foster a deeper level of connection. The first three weeks of the month are great for focused and strategic work, like strengthening your long-term wealth and solidifying close partnerships, both personal and professional. An alliance with a heavy-hitting VIP could also help boost your status. You might explore ways to earn passive income, perhaps by purchasing property you can rent out or making some other savvy investment. Pare down on your social calendar and conserve your energy for QT with your most meaningful bonds—intimacy and privacy suit your mood now.
On November 14, get set for a payday as the Taurus full moon, also a potent supermoon lights up your second house of work and money. On this power date, you could score a raise, promotion or even a new job. Your slow and steady approach to taking over the corner office is yielding huge gains. Hopefully this full moon will also illuminate your own sense of worth—placing value on your unique contributions is, indeed, the key to a more robust bank account. If you’ve been working hard, treat yourself to a luxe little something-something. Splurge a bit, Aries, you’ve earned this!
Speaking of earnings, you’ve got some spiritual dividends coming, too, as cloudy Neptune turns direct (forward) in Pisces, your twelfth house of the psyche and healing, on November 18. Since June 16, the planet of illusions has been retrograde in this uber-touchy zone of your chart, perhaps stirring up some old wounds or unhealthy patterns. You could have slipped into a tried-and-true addictive pattern, even numbing your messy feelings with a vice, like alcohol, nicotine, or retail therapy. Or, maybe you got overly consumed with a loved one’s woes and treated their dramas like they were your own. But as we all well know, other people’s problems, no matter how dire, could have been a welcome distraction from dealing with your own inner struggles.
Now, as ethereal Neptune gains steam, the fog lifts, and you can see a clearer path to action. You might lose your taste for unhealthy habits, whether it’s emotional eating or being a doormat. As you start to move through the world (and your relationships) from a more centered place, you’ll glean what the last five months of confusion and delusion did FOR you (not “to” you). Yes, that lost-at-sea frustration served a higher purpose—or, more precisely, YOUR higher purpose. Maybe you needed to see just one last time—with a clear perspective—just how toxic a certain relationship was for you. How much of your life force were you willing to devote to someone else’s drama? (Hint: too much.) Or, you might see how a grudge you’d been nursing has been eating away at your soul. The time has arrived to “let go and let God” (the universe, the divine, whatever).
On November 21, the Sun enters Sagittarius and your ninth house of travel and adventure, widening your perspective. You’re eager to break free from the chains of psychological intensity and plow forward. So think big, Aries! Maybe you’ve been fantasizing about a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the temples of Laos, or dipping your well-manicured toes into the Dead Sea. Well, the time is ripe for a serious journey. Start perusing Skyscanner and sign up for fare alerts. Or, you might decide to launch an entrepreneurial venture or prepare an inspiring talk that’s close to your heart. Sure, your robust agenda might nudge you out of your well-worn lane…but isn’t that what you really want?
Good vibes, interrupted. The free-flowing and forward-moving energy could come to a halt on November 24, with the clash of a tense square between growth-happy Jupiter in Libra, your seventh house of commitment, and transformation-by-slow-burning-fire Pluto in Capricorn, your tenth house of career advancement. This is the first of three tangles between Jupiter and Pluto—the next ones will hit in March and September 2017. If you live in the U.S., you might just be celebrating Thanksgiving Day, which is NOT exactly the ideal setting for a tough aspect like this.
As Jupiter and Pluto do battle, you might find that a close personal or professional partnership is in peril due to clashing agendas, or maybe you simply don’t share the same vision anymore (or maybe you never really did!). If this relationship is stymied by power struggles and underhanded moves, those hidden elements could go nuclear today. Jupiter rules abundance—and while this is usually welcome, in this case, it could also bring an “abundance” of drama and stress. Avoid arrogance and sneaky behavior at all costs.
In need of some perspective? The month closes with a page-turning Sagittarius new moon on November 29, which breathes new life into your most expansive, soul-stirring visions. Over the next six months you could launch an entrepreneurial venture or go after your big dreams. Perhaps you’ll take initiative on completing a passion project, like a message-driven manuscript or indie food cart business. Beware, though: The new moon forms a close square to foggy Neptune in Pisces, your twelfth house of the subconscious. As much as you THINK you’re ready to pull the trigger, the universe could have other plans. Pay attention to intuitive flashes and synchronicities today—they could be giving you solid guidance. Let yourself get butterflies about your horizon-broadening adventures, but don’t rush to make them part of your reality just yet, either. Some of the players involved may also be untrustworthy, or you just need to allow this idea to “marinate” before taking decisive action. New moons take six months to unfold, so there’s no need to rush.
