Your Taurus Monthly Horoscope for November 2018. The major theme of this period is looking at the relationship with your spouse if you have one. This could be a time when you realise you need to take their feeling into account and you have functioning a little too independently. This can be a lovely time of reconciliation if the relationship has been going through a rocky patch. This peacemaking vibe lasts until November 21 after that it’s time to explore the dark, dank cellar of your chart for the roots of any conflicts between you and your partner or any rivals.
Taurus November Horoscope 2018
The October 24 Full Moon (effects last until November 7) in your own sign won’t let you be objective, no matter how much you try. Detachment is pretty much impossible and you will empathise with every man and his dog, (Or even plants for those extra sensitives!) This can go two ways, you can either be extra nurturing this month and emotionally giving, or you could be annoyingly needy and demanding. It all depends on what this Full Moon triggers in your own chart, squares to Mars are brattish and explosive, trines to Venus are loved-up supreme.
The Learning Triangle For Taurus
The November 7 learning Triangle sadly brings the end to a year of generous Jupiter in your marriage house. Did you get married? Did you even divorce? Sometimes Jupiter lets you find freedom and allows you to let go of partners who have been more like your cell mate than your soul mate.
If all has gone well, then you should now be entering the serious stage of the relationship like moving in together, but as Uranus retreats out of your own sign for a while, you will have time to adjust to the new electrified Taurus. Take this opportunity to get grounded and say goodbye to the old you. Work gives you a nice bonus at this time which you can use to buy clothes or other enhancements that fit in with your new image.
The North Node in your neighbourhood zone should help you feel more connected to your local area, especially if you have just moved. You might need to look at your belief system also as Uranus rebels against what you took as dogma over the last seven years. Say goodbye to meeting rebels in the form of deviant friends who acted as a catalyst so that you could misbehave! Now you can do “refreshing change” without having to attract those degenerate underworld types
Taurus November Horoscope ~ Love & Career
Venus turns direct in your 6h house of daily grind and health. Unfortunately, this is probably the most boring time of the year for affairs of the heart. Fortunately, it only happens once a year! What this period is good for however is health. You can use these three weeks or so to make yourself beautiful from the inside out. At this time you will find it really easy to stick to a detox diet, and it is also good for joining a gym and making a commitment to keeping fit. You might even meet a future partner through a fitness class.
Mercury is retrograde after Nov 17 so go to the dedicated Mercury retrograde post to see what that means for your career and communications this month.
These horoscopes are most accurate when read for your ascendant, but if you have your Sun plus a stellium (2 or more planets) in this sign then you will find that these horoscopes will ring true for your Sun also. All mainstream horoscopes are written using solar houses, which, in others words, is writing for your ascendant. However, the majority of astrologers won’t tell you that because they realise most of their readers will not know their ascendant. If you do not know your ascendant please use this free chart maker to find it. Once you have done that you can also read more about your rising decan and star too! It is the most personal point of your chart and the only one (Along with your ruling planet) that really describes you personally and your incarnation for this lifetime. Please read my The Zodiac Decans ~ Astrological Use & History post for greater understanding in using the decans in general.
THE TAURUS INCARNATION
Ascendant Taurus 1
Mirach 0º (As Heliacal rising star) “Using rapport and consensus as a personal life philosophy. Believing that the increasing beauty or harmony in one’s world leads to greater fulfilment for all concerned. Enjoying a sensual life”  Hamal 9º (As Heliacal rising star) “ A personal philosophy of action rather than words, to automatically seek a physical solution to all problems, a lifestyle where one is willing to work hard to achieve one’s dreams” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decans energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Taurus decan 1 the raging and ravenous mouth behavior will be most notable in love relationships. It certainly is passionate, and at the very basic level a superb kisser, when they stop talking that is.. and, I would imagine *ahem* oral anything is well starred. Interestingly Bernadette Brady gives the example of Poppy King the cosmetic entrepreneur whose business grew from her idea of a better lipstick. So there’s that mouth again.
A glance at the fixed stars list reveals a girdle and a breast, so I think nobody sums up this placement better than curvy TV chef Nigella Lawson. Nigella is famous for her sensual presenting and is often parodied with close-ups of her lips as she samples her recipe while also zooming in on her ample bosom as she stirs yet another cream-laden cake mix. Nigella’s marriage to advertising mogul Charles Saatchi made the papers when he was seen grabbing her throat while dining out. Of course, Queen Cassiopeia was also punished for “mouthing off”.
It seems there is a certain amount of punishment here for just being too beautiful or too clever or both. Sometimes it can be from partners or other times, like in the case of Tesla or Rushdie it can come from “open enemies.” My feeling is that as much as these folk can present Brady’s “beauty or harmony” out to the world, and even be very successful, they still need to be aware of stirring up envious attacks and slander. Unfortunately, Taurus decan 1 often feels that they have to play down their talents if they are involved with a very insecure partner, at other times though it might actually be that they are acting too vain!
ASCENDANT TAURUS 1 Examples: Nikola Tesla, Charles Manson, Eva Peron, Robert Kennedy, Mary Queen of Scots, Helmut Kohl, Ulysses S Grant, Salman Rushdie, Boy George, Sheryl Crow, Marianne Faithfull, Suzi Quatro, Gary Barlow, Dave Gahan, Snoop Dogg, Liza Minnelli, Donatella Versace, Rowan Atkinson, Nigella Lawson, Sigourney Weaver, Claudia Cardinale, Dakota Fanning, Joan Sutherland, Vladimir Nabokov, David Letterman, Angela Davis, Andrew Cunanan, Rodney King, Maurice Utrillo, Lyle Menendez, Louise Brown, Amelia Earhart, Serena Williams.
Ascendant Taurus 2
Menkar 14º ~ “Legacies and inheritances attended by much evil.” (As Heliacal Rising star) “The nihilist, or a person who goes with the flow. To be gullible, or empathic to the unexpressed feelings around one. To have one’s actions influence many.” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Taurus decan 2 the stage mother and statesmen behavior will be most notable in love relationships.
It will be very hard for these folk not to play the smothering parent with their beloved. As you can see from the celebrity examples, there does show some who have been touched by the unfortunate or even so-called ‘evil’ aspects of this decan, I’m thinking that there may be some inherited ancestral karma as well as the simple material inheritance that comes with the star Menkar.
The problem may just be the subject takes on too much of other peoples burdens and woes, if they absorb too much of other peoples negativity then I think that is how they can end up attracting the misfortune associated with the stars here. This is the Virgo decan of Taurus, therefore there can be a tendency to become everyone’s nursemaid. But since this decan is so stoic and has so much stamina, people just assume these folk can manage perfectly well.
The archetype of the matron or super-nanny fits well here, but they are certainly not pushovers or doormats because they really do love to take care and organise people. The problem is Ascendant Taurus 2 can relish a little too much in being so indispensable in a person’s life. These subjects can deliberately shoulder the weight of two in a relationship so that the partners own muscles wither away, making that partner even more dependent. Ascendant Taurus 2 must consciously work to pull themselves out of being their partner’s crutch, even if they are so darn good at it.
ASCENDANT TAURUS 2 Examples: Martin Luther-King, George Washington, George Lucas, Pedro Almodóvar, Cate Blanchett, Vivian Leigh, Mia Farrow, Joe Pesci, Elle McPherson, Humphrey Bogart, Steve Marriott, Mariah Carey, Queen Latifah, Antonio Salieri, Little Richard, Miriam Stoppard, Gloria Vanderbilt, Dorothy Parker, Barry Sheen, Angela Davis, Dodi Fayed, Ian Brady, Harold Shipman.
Ascendant Taurus 3
Capulus 24º (Heliacal Rising Star.) ~ “To have a personal motto ‘actions speak louder than words’. To have a strong desire to achieve one’s goals. A life filled with an unyielding determination to fulfill one’s passion” 
Algol 26º (Heliacal Rising Star) ~ ” To take the path of intensity and drama, to follow the road that has the most passion, to seek strong relationships as a way of life.” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Taurus decan 3 the artistic alchemy will be most notable in love relationships. This means their lover will have to be their inspiring muse. They want a love that transforms their lives truly madly and deeply just like the film (Sometimes they can fall in love with an actual ghost.). AC Taurus 3 is not afraid to jump into the most unsuitable relationship because they figure that a bit of suffering is so good for the soul. For them, it really doesn’t feel like true love unless your heart is bleeding all over the kitchen floor. It doesn’t matter how many times these folk are wounded in love affairs, they get up again and again and again. They are now so resilient they can take anything, but they have to watch that they don’t keep repeating the same abusive relationship with different partners. If AC Taurus 3 are not careful they can make a fine art out of masochism, but it would be far better to turn the masochism into an actual piece of fine art, and many actually do!
