November is when the Sun transits through the Water element of Scorpio and the Fire element of Sagittarius. This month Venus (love, money, beauty & female), the planetary ruler of Taurus and Libra is still retrograde until November 18th in the sign of Scorpio (intensity, sexuality, transformation) and will scoot back into Libra (diplomacy, relationships, social) from Nov 9th – 30th. The same energy applies as with last month in terms of past relationships, old friends or relatives showing up when you least expect them. Also, make sure you are keeping a keen eye on your finances.
This month life starts to speed up again toward mid-month. Three planets will go direct, Venus, Jupiter and Neptune, catapulting us back into the mainstream. The past couple of months with so many planets in and out of retrograde it has made it hard to gain much momentum in moving our lives in a forward motion. Get ready for that to change but also know the energy may be a little groggy in the beginning but will soon get its footing and we’ll be off to the races with life responding in good time to our efforts for a short period… With the energy finally moving, keep in mind that Mercury will be going retrograde next month from December 10th – 29th. More detail will be given next month about this transit. In 2010 we started the year with Mercury in retrograde and in 2011 we will start the year with ALL the planets moving direct. So at least for now it looks like in 2011 there will be more opportunity to create movement in our agendas, projects and relationships.
Check out the following important dates to put on your calendar:
November 1st – Pluto (transformation) is in a good aspect to Venus (love, money, beauty, talents) – This bodes well for relationships and business partnerships.
November 5th – New Moon in Scorpio – A New Moon represents new beginnings and setting intentions for the coming months. This is also a time when you may need to let something go to make room for the new and improved coming into your life. For Scorpios, this is your one new moon of the year so you may want to set time aside to make a plan for the coming year. What do you want to see for the rest of 2010/2011? Write it down and then take action during the coming months to make it happen. Signs most affected by this new moon will be Scorpio, Taurus, Leo and Aquarius.

November 21st – Full Moon in Taurus. A Full Moon represents energy releasing, letting go, ending and completing.

Signs most affected by this Full Moon will be Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius.
November 22nd – Sun moves into Sagittarius (adventure, freedom, truth)

Happy Birthday Scorpio! Venus (love, money, beauty, talents) will move direct November 18th. This is a great time to get a new hair style or buy that outfit you’ve had your eye on for your birthday celebration. Jupiter (good luck, expansion & truth) will also be moving direct on November 18th in your house of true love, children, creativity and self-expression. Your one New Moon of the year in Scorpio will be on November 5th. Make sure you set time aside that day to create, compose, and construct your intentions for the coming year! Sounds like this can be a very interesting month to mix, mingle and create!
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21:
Mars (passion, drive, energy & action) is now in Sagittarius until December 7th. You haven’t experienced this burst of energy since November of 2008. This is a great time to start new endeavors in your career, work, diet and exercise. The Sun will move into Sagittarius on Nov 22nd and that will really allow you to let the party start!
Capricorn December 22 – January 19:
The New Moon in Scorpio on November 5th will take place in your house of friendships, hopes and wishes. This is a great opportunity to put out to the Universe what you are truly looking for in life and then do something every day to bring your wish to fruition. Venus (love, money, beauty, talents) will retrograde back into your house of career on Nov 7th and this is a great opportunity to revisit a career decision that can be tweaked or adjusted.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18:
Looks like things may be a little slow in the beginning of the month but will start moving forward by mid-month. You will have a New Moon (new beginnings and fresh starts) in your house of career and reputation on November 5th setting the tone for what’s to come. Venus (love, money, beauty, talents) and Jupiter (good luck, expansion & truth) will move direct on November 18th activating your house of career and one of your money houses. It looks like this a good month to build a solid foundation for your financial future.
Pisces February 19 – March 20:
Your ruling planet Neptune (fantasy, compassion, love, denial) turns direct on November 7th. This will give you a boost of inspiration in the coming months. Mars (passion, drive, energy & action) will swiftly be moving through your house of career spurning you to pursue your dreams as well. If you find yourself with no direction, sign up for a class that you’ve always had an interest in to help the inspiration process. Music is also a good outlet for inspiration during this time.
Aries March 21 – April 19:
Most of the planets are in the upper quadrant of your chart. That means you can not hide… Venus (love, money, beauty, talents) and Jupiter (good luck, expansion & truth) will move direct on November 18th activating your houses of money and secrets. Secrets may be reveled this month and money may quickly leave your bank account but hopefully Jupiter will help to attract more income to replace what is leaving.
Taurus April 20 – May 20:
Your planetary ruler, Venus (love, money, beauty, talents) returns to direct motion in your house of relationships and business partnerships November 18th. Jupiter (good luck, expansion & truth) goes direct on the same day as well in the area of your chart that deals with how you receive love… The Full & New Moons this month are also aspecting the relationship sector of your chart. Are you getting the theme for this month…
Gemini May 21 – June 21:
Mars the planet of passion and action is lighting up your relationship house. And with all the activity in the area of the chart that deals with your daily routine and your work environment, I wouldn’t be surprised if you started dating someone from your work, your health club or the supermarket you visit each week. The New Moon is taking place in your 6th house as well and this can be a good time to start that health and fitness routing you may have been putting off.
Cancer June 22 – July 22:
Power struggles in your closest relationships will keep you busy this month. Transformational Pluto is coming in contact with the North Node (karma) in your relationship house. This is the time to really make core changes with issues that you’ve been trying to keep at bay and not confront or resolve. Take your time and really get down to the business at hand with your partner. Ask for assistance if necessary to help with mediation and to help keep the process moving forward.
Leo July 23 – August 22:
As with last month, family may take your attention this month. This is a great time to connect, get answers, and even enjoy spending time with family. Fall is here and it’s a great time to plan dinner parties in the home and bond with the people closest to you. By mid-month Jupiter and Mercury will be in Sagittarius wanting to break out and go for an adventure. Enjoy!
Virgo August 23 – September 22:
Virgo you may be a busy bee this month. With so much activity in your house of communication, transportation, and short trips you will need to make sure you breathe and don’t get overwhelmed. Your ruling planet, Mercury, will be moving into Sagittarius on November 9th sparking your enthusiasm to communicate your truth to anybody that will listen. Don’t be discouraged if everyone is not as enthusiastic as you… The Scorpio energy is compatible with you dear Virgo, so this should reflect in enjoying a long awaited positive month.
Libra September 23 – October 23:
Your ruling planet, Venus (love, money, beauty, talents) is still retrograde until November 18th in your house of money and resources. This is not making life a bed of roses. You are having to redefine what is of value and what needs to be released. In the big picture this is a beautiful thing because you are lightening your load but going through this process can be painful. Saturn (responsibility, limitation & discipline) in your sign is not going to let you off easy so get through the hard work so you can reap the rewards that lay ahead of you.
