Your Monthly Horoscopes
To get the best out of your monthly horoscope, use the horoscope maker to find your rising sign and sun sign decan. November horoscopes are OUT NOW and feature a special Learning Triangle report for its effect in your sign.
The monthly horoscope for November brings us a Mercury retrograde which starts on November 17 and a learning triangle. Best of all is that Jupiter will move into Sagittarius where of course it is extra powerful in the sign that it rules. The learning triangle will take place just before Jupiter moves into Sagittarius so we get a wrapping up of what Jupiter in Scorpio and Uranus in Aries meant for us on November 7.
Did we pass the exam? There is quite a bit of re-orientation going on what with the Nodes triggered by Uranus and now Jupiter inserting a shot of justice into the whole caboodle. The fixed T-square of October has shifted back into the Cardinal signs while the Nodes as they retrograde through the zodiac enter the signs of Cancer/Capricorn where they will remain until May 2020.
In the November Forecast I look at the what the Learning triangle means in general and for all star signs in the monthly horoscopes. Also discussed; the shift of Uranus back into Aries, the North Node moving into Cancer and best of all, Jupiter into Sagittarius!!
So this is a month of big shifts. The Nodes change signs every year and a half. Jupiter changes signs every year. Uranus also moves back into Aries for a few months also taking it out of fixed sign Taurus until the end of the year. The emphasis on the fixed and quite stubborn energy was quite strong then in 2018 with Jupiter in Scorpio and the North Node in Leo. Now we can finally take action with the Nodes in Cardinal Cancer/Capricorn and Jupiter in powerful rulership now in the mutable sign of Sagittarius. Oh and we mustn’t forget that Venus turns direct on November 16 the day before Mercury goes Retrograde so there is a lot of changing of the guard going on this month.
November Aspect Pattern ~ The Learning Triangle
To me, it feels like a liberating energy and one where people are feeling brave enough to test out their own leadership skills. It’s now about taking responsibility for ourselves and others in our care. We are out of the victimization rut. The shackles are loosening and the shekels have less of a hold. Money does not have the grip over us that is used to have. Jupiter is the planet of religion and spirituality, but while it was in Scorpio it was liable to be blackmailed. We saw so many sex scandals make the news with Jupiter in Scorpio. How many politicians are beholden to people who hold the keys to some sort of dirty secret in their past? The Mercury retrograde also falls in Sagittarius where we get a power-packed stellium of Sun/Mercury/Jupiter on November 27. Prepare for some great news or promotion in the area that Sagittarius falls in your chart.
Mercury Retrograde runs from November 17 to December 7 ~ 27º Scorpio to 13º Sagittarius. It will hit fixed star Toliman the wound in Chiron’s thigh. Mercury on Toliman is “ Changeable, vacillating, fault-finding, difficult to please, good intellect, business success, trouble in domestic affairs through enemies, family sickness, disappointed ambitions.”  Darkstar ‘Dschubba’ which gives “ Hypocritical, evil mind, low associates, imprisonment, malignant disease but chances of recovery, criminal, secrets in connection with life or parentage, domestic disharmony.”  and the famous royal star of Persia Antares.
Mercury here brings “Suspicious, wrongfully accuses friends, unpopular, uses ecclesiastic influence in business, money obtained slowly and with much difficulty, danger of sickness to the native and his family, and death of a relative at home or away.”  Looking at that collection of interpretations we concur that this Mercury Retrograde may be the most difficult one of the year. But since many of the stars are in constellation Ophiuchus the medicine man, it could also be a very healing one as well. Much poison will rise to the surface, and we shall be able to lance that boil.
