What’s in the Stars for you this month:

There was said to be a sign above the entrance to the Oracle of Delphi – it read “Tempet nosce” – “Know thyself ”.

Astrology affords a unique view into your inner world, as the planets and signs are archetypal signposts to the riches of human experience.

There’s a lot of information that can be gleaned from the Sun sign alone, however if you really want a picture of your full potential in any area of life, then check out my other readings.

Monthly Horoscopes November 2018

Aries (March 21st - April 19th)

Your allegiances change this month as you question your involvement with a group of friends, a club or a cause. You are accustomed to meeting any challenges head-on. Therefore, leadership skills and independent activities are your strengths, but group politics not so much. Personal friends and family may respect your forthright, honest nature. However, this month relationships with acquaintances, associates and social groups are influenced by the feisty planet Mars, also your planetary ruler. This means that conflict needs to be resolved in as calm a manner as possible. This is not the time to ram home your point of view.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

The Cosmic sky is alight with messages for Taurus. Everything is calling on you to pay attention to your closest relationship. Primarily your spouse (if you are married). Your nearest and dearest needs your support. You, too, may feel the need to focus on your partnership. Matters of importance may need to be discussed. An Ex may feature this month. Be careful not to fall into old relationship traps. With so much activity in your stars, this can be a loving and rewarding month, during which your connections grow and strengthen through love. Sensual pleasures, generous monetary transactions and enjoyable outings abound.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

Once again your ruling planet, Mercury, is going Retrograde on November 17 (AEDT) prompting delays and misunderstandings in communication. This will affect everyone. For you it will be activated in the 7th House of your Solar Chart – the house of marital and business partnerships. Therefore, it is vital that you think twice before making permanent decisions regarding marital or business contracts. You need to do your research, plan and perhaps start negotiating terms, but wait until Mercury goes Direct on December 7 before finalising matters. November is also a good time to make sure that your health in heading in the right direction.

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)

You may be pleased to know that you are able to put yourself first. You can involve others but if you want to indulge in solitude or solitary playtime then the planets are aligned in your favour. You simply have to take some time out to discover what it is that you would love to do and then book it in. If you are a creative crab then you can spend time on an artistic project. If you have always wanted to be more creative then now is the time to start a design class, take up a musical instrument or join a local arts group.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

Your family is calling. Loved ones want your attention. There could be many reasons why. Your job is to pay attention. You could celebrate family events, redecorate your home or host home-based activities. Whatever your personal situation the planets are aligned in the private sector of your Solar Chart calling on you to ensure that your personal life is all that you would like it to be. The Nodes of Destiny are soon to move out of Leo heralding your last chance to tune into compelling thoughts and feelings that have been around for a while. Your “aha” moments may increase before the end of the month.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)

Events close to home are highlighted this month. This is not necessarily your immediate family or household but more your neighbourhood or siblings if you have any. Your in-laws may also feature more than usual. Your mind is likely to be more active than usual so focus your attention on positive plans, get organised early for those end-of-year events and ensure that you don’t take on board too much. You need to make sure that your analytical mind is kept busy on positives and not on worries. The trick is to be organised, relaxed and have priorities rather than strive for perfection in yourself and others.

Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)

November’s planets are aligned in the 2nd House of your Solar Chart indicating good fortune when it comes to your personal finances. Money matters are likely to be positive and you are well able to pay your bills, plan some fun activities and indulge in a little retail therapy. Your main lesson this month is to ensure that your self-esteem is strong. If not now is the time to make the most of any opportunities to boost your own self-worth. Two positive planets give you the wind beneath your winds to soar about personal doubts and problems, as long as you stay focussed on your own resources – your material resources and your own strengths.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

The positive planet Jupiter is playing its last hoorah in your Zodiac Sign calling on you to make the most of the opportunities that have arisen in the last year or so. If you haven’t done so before then now is the time to face any doubts and fears, and gather your resources to achieve success – whatever success means to you. The fortunate planet Venus is also in Scorpio emphasising the positives that can be gained after a little reflection on your priorities. All areas of life are affected but love and money are likely to be the most go-ahead for you right now.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)

The lucky planet Jupiter is moving into your Zodiac Sign this month, a very fortunate event indeed. Jupiter is your ruling planet and so you are really coming into your own power. Everything that you have worked towards is likely to come to fruition now. Doors open. You need to be aware of what are worthwhile chances and what are not. Hopefully you have been resourceful in the last few years and have been working towards a goal, something that Sagittarians usually do. Now you can reap the rewards. You need to be wary of self-doubt, excess and grandiosity. It is more likely that your sunny nature succeeds at whatever captivates your heart and drives your passion.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)

There is a time for reaping and a time for sowing, or so the saying goes. Whether you are a domestic or mountain goat now is your time to sow because the industrious planet Saturn is in your Sign. Serious Saturn also rules your Zodiac Sign emphasising the message that what you focus on now will reap rewards further down the track. This is not a time for shirking responsibilities. Fortunately, you are a grand master at understanding about delayed satisfaction, sometimes bemused by other people’s need for instant gratification. So, the planetary message is stay focussed, keep going and you stand to reap rewards.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)

If you haven’t done so already you need to do one final purge of anything that is no longer useful. This is not a time to be stubborn. The Nodes of Destiny are soon to leave your Zodiac Sign and so you can make the most of the final few degrees by letting go of all that is holding you back. Think of the Leos in your life and for a brief time emulate their behaviour. You can shine in your own right once you have focussed on your purpose and let go of any self-limiting beliefs. This month your profession may be the area that needs your attention.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)

November sees you focussed on your career and your status in the world. Young people may feature or you may make a change in your life direction. This is not so much a social month as rather one where you act to further your own career goals, or status as a parent. It is also possible that an authority figure or a parental one features more prominently right now. You have some decisions to make but they are likely to be positive ones that promote your own health and happiness when it comes to your role as parent and professional.
