From Ophira and Tali Edut, The Astrotwins.
Go for your goals! While others slip into pre-holiday mode, you’re just gearing up. Until November 21, the Sun is in Scorpio, your tenth house of career, prestige and status—your most ambitious time of year. So lean in, Aquarius (and we don’t mean into the rum-spiked eggnog bowl). You could make great headway on a high-profile project—and score a promotion or year-end career coup in the process. Don’t miss out on a chance to show off your considerable chops! Between the late nights and pressure-driven strategy sessions, you might also want to schedule time with a mentor or business coach. The hard-earned wisdom of someone who’s been-there-done-that could prove invaluable in your ascent.
Fueling your fire? From November 8-December 19, energetic Mars visits Aquarius, revving up your first house of fresh starts and assertiveness. Go-getter Mars only visits your sign once every couple years, so take advantage. The red planet gives you extra mojo to push for your own interests, whether on the job or in your personal life. Is it time for a raise? Ask for it! Have a cool idea for an artisanal food truck or an Etsy store selling your handmade wildflower honey? Make it happen! Tout your passion projects and be your own best advocate. Aquarians are the cheerleaders of the zodiac, and your enthusiasm is downright contagious—so don’t be shy about expressing what truly matters to you. Just don’t go TOO far with your requests, as you could be received as pushy and demanding under aggressive Mars’ reign. Dive in, then take a step back, allowing the other person a minute to think it over!
With all these #boss goals swirling, you also need to refuel your tanks. On November 14, you’ll get a chance to kick back, as the Taurus full moon—a potent supermoon—lights up your domestic fourth house. Your professional drive takes a much-needed backseat to your emotions. This is a wonderful time to rest and reflect, spending quality downtime at Chez Aquarius, either alone or with your closest peeps. What IS going on at home base, anyway? This pause helps you tune into your most elemental needs—or even to ponder a lifestyle change, like dialing down on your career commitments and carving out more “me” time? A change of address could also be in the works or you could get news about a move, home sale or property purchase. This nostalgic full moon could also stir up childhood memories, or put you in the mood to hang the holiday decorations a little early this year. A pregnancy, adoption or family planning could also be part of this nurturing lunar agenda.
Financial improvements arrive in the second half of this month. Since June 16, you’ve been fuzzy with money, as hazy Neptune has been retrograde (backward) in Pisces, your second house of security and work. Your fiscal stability might have slipped through your fingers. You could have lost a steady income stream or struggled to stay on top of your cashflow. Fortunately, foggy Neptune turns direct (forward) on November 19, which helps clarify your budget and bottom line. If you’ve had a few self-confidence stumbles, Neptune direct will put a little swagger back in your step.
Let’s get this (holiday) party started! On November 21, the Sun glides into Sagittarius, your eleventh house of socializing and group activity. After an industrious four weeks, you’re ready to kick up your heels a bit and have some fun. The festive vibes are right on time with end-of-the-year celebrations and mistletoe gatherings. Take a break from your cubicle or computer and hit a holiday luncheon or networking event. You’re radiating positivity and curiosity—making you great cocktail hour company. Chat up some new contacts while waiting for a second round of Indonesian satay skewers or mini bruschetta to come by. If you’ve been working on a collaboration, your crew will make headway, especially if you take time to bond as a collective unit.
Hold your fire on November 24, as honest-to-a-fault Jupiter in Libra, your outspoken ninth house, clashes with shadowy Pluto in Capricorn, your twelfth house of hidden agendas. This is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. and someone at the turkey table could interpret your meant-to-be-funny comments the wrong way—and then lash out at you passive-aggressively. Perhaps you avoid sharing about your exciting plans, maybe because you sensed that a relative might be jealous of your pending adventures. But if do tamp down your enthusiasm, you’re not really being authentic, now are you? Express yourself, and sidestep the crazy-making bait! Also, if you opt out of plans with a soul-sucking relative or a negative old friend, try not to feel guilty. You’re not actually obligated to spend your downtime dodging someone else’s toxicity (even if there’s been plenty of holiday precedent set). Unfortunately, there’s no magic spray to protect you from what they’ve got. Steer clear, Water Bearer.
The month closes with a page-turning Sagittarius new moon on November 29, which highlights your communal eleventh house. A new friendship or group affiliation could blossom around this day. A team project might also gain steam—this is an excellent day to set intentions around how you want this creative collaboration to unfold. Since the eleventh house rules technology, the seeds of a promising digital venture could be planted, too. Everything you begin at this new moon will unfold in the coming six months, so start building your online presence and reaching out to promising connections.
