Your Virgo Horoscope for November 2018 means this is the time for catching up with local gossip. Research and learning are well starred too as your mind is hungry to chew on a book or twelve. This is a great time to learn something new. Your brain will be sponge-like in its absorbency for information. You will find you are able to settle down with a book and find it hard to put down. Local trips are enjoyable as you find you have many invites to neighbourhood events. There is much running due to running errands or bargain hunting. From November 22 the focus falls back inside your home and you are drawn to snuggling up on the sofa or pottering around the garden. It feels like you need to ground yourself again and get closer to your roots, whether that is about connecting with family or just doing tree pose barefoot in the garden.
Virgo November Horoscope 2018
The October 24 Full Moon (effects last until November 7) gives you itchy feet for escaping to somewhere far-flung. This could mean planning some sort of esoteric study which will open your mind up to infinite possibilities. You want to feel boundless but also contained safely in a pod, like being on the London Eye or some such big wheel tourist contraption. If you can’t afford to travel anywhere you might find instead that you bring distant cultures to your own doorstep by making friends with a foreigner. Whatever you do you will have dreams of distant shores or even historical places that transport you back in time. Forwards or backwards, mental or physical it doesn’t matter as long as you are on an exciting voyage.
The Learning Triangle For Virgo
November 7 brings a grand finale in your studies. This could be in actual exams or just researching your local area. It is time to wrap up the line of research that you have been on for the last year when you find out you have really exhausted that line of enquiry and there is just no more juice in it. Maybe you have simply gotten bored.
Something turns up that shows you that you have actually spent far too many resources in this area too, a bill comes in which seems like extortion. Querying that expense may lead to an argument where it suddenly clicks that you actually do not value the subject any longer. Conflicts show you what you truly value and what you don’t.
You are preparing to put down roots now after much testing and experimentation. You are moving towards making some new friends who will play a big part in your future destiny so make sure you join some common interest groups. This way you have more chance of making some fateful meetings. Say goodbye to feeling stuck in a rut as these new friends open the doors to more travel in the coming years too.
Virgo November Horoscope ~ Love & Career
Venus turns direct in your 2nd house of cash and valuables. This month you are more likely to fall in love with a funky new pair of shoes than a human being. Venus rules money as well as romance, so her covetous, material tendency can come out very strongly at this time. On the positive side, at least you will attract more cash into your life too, so keep your eyes out for ways to monetise your business rather than just being seduced by shop windows. Mercury is retrograde after November 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 VIRGO INCARNATION
Ascendant Virgo 1
Thuban 7º ~ (Heliacal rising star) “A person who is aware that they are protecting a treasure, to guard something important be it an idea, a cultural tradition or a physical object” 
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 Virgo decan 1 the ‘Persephone/Isis’ devoted behaviour will be most notable in love relationships. Virgo decan 1 being ruled by the Sun make them so luminous that they tend to attract quite dark Plutonic partners. Maybe this is simply to get them to loosen their apron strings or corset. Nature always seeks a balance. To outsiders, they look like they are getting involved with one “wrong un” after another, but actually if anyone can deal with the dark side, it’s a very evolved Virgo decan 1. But this is the nub, they do have to be very self-aware. Like Persephone, innocence does them no favours at all. They have to go into the underworld, and even be “raped” by the world in order for them to awaken to the fact that there ARE nasty, evil people out there. Not everyone has Virgo’s pure, clean heart. These folk feel very protective of their partners are regard them as something very precious. The melancholia is also very apparent in these folk as the ascendant is the first impression people will get of a person’s birth chart. There are quite a few philanthropists and dare I say it “do-gooders” born with this decan rising as well as writers, philosophers and moralists in the list below. Some of the more ‘far out’ Virgos are seen in Copernicus and Cannon.
ASCENDANT VIRGO 1 EXAMPLES: Nicolaus Copernicus, Edwin Hubble, Dolores Cannon, Cyril Fagan, Henry the VIII of UK, Albert Prince Consort, Justin Trudeau, Lyndon B Johnston, Dwight .D. Eisenhower, Henry Ford, Elena Ford, Betty Ford, Titus Salt, Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney, Madonna, Freddy Mercury, Donna Summer, Paul Simon, Siouxsie Sioux, John Cage, Sharon Stone, Christina Ricci, Woody Allen, Uma Thurman, Marlene Dietrich, Fay Dunaway, Peter Sellers, Montgomery Clift, Tim Robbins, Eddie Fisher, Lena Zavaroni, Pebbles Santiago, Dolly Neimans, Patty Hearst, Marie Duplessis, Pele, Guillaume Apollinaire, Charles Baudelaire, Agatha Christie, J.R.R Tolkien, Albrecht Durer, Diego Rivera, Antonio Gaudi, Amedeo Mogdiliani, Antione de Saint-Exupery, Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa, Pierre/Marie Curie Davison.
Ascendant Virgo 2
Zosma 11º ~ (Heliacal Rising star) ” Independent; to prefer death to servitude to a hated or passionless career. To value one’s personal freedom, above all else, whether emotional, spiritual or physical.” 
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 Virgo decan 1 the ‘great stalker’ devoted behaviour will be most notable in love relationships. The obsessive tendencies are very marked here because of the polarity of the ‘Me’ and ‘other’ axis. Alost of the obsession can be projected onto the partner as if they are the neurotic stalker.
The sacred prostitute and the virgin priestess are both archetypes of Virgo decan 2. If these folk get very disillusioned and wounded by life they may become reclusive. They simply cannot take any more pain from their fellow human beings. Those in Virgo decan 2 who have been sexually abused will either become extremely promiscuous or totally celibate. They can, of course, become abusers themselves though Virgo decan 2 more likely to self-harm than anything else, and this can be through addictions. Those that do become bullies or abusers will be the very last person you would suspect. They are fantastic at pulling the veil over your eyes. A combination of their wounded look and some serious guilt-tripping can make you drop everything and rescue them in a thrice.
ASCENDANT VIRGO 2 EXAMPLE: John F Kennedy, Gaddafi, Anne Boleyn’s Death, Richard Nixon, Oscar Wilde, Keanu Reeves, Oprah Winfrey, John Cleese, Eddie Izzard, Wolfgang Mozart, Joseph Haydn, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, Placido Domingo, L L Cool J, Jim Kerr, Sheena Easton, Dolly Parton, David Byrne, Lulu, K. D Lang, Barbara Plekker, Dora Maar, Jack Kerouac, Ivy Sitwell, Vivian Robson, Darkstar Astrology, Barbara Hand Clow, Wallis/Edward VIII Davison.
Ascendant Virgo 3
Denebola 21º ~ “ Riches, preferment and good fortune attended by many dangers and anxieties through own folly, benefits seldom last, trouble and sickness.” [4a]
Alkes 23º ~ (Heliacal Rising Star.) “To be the living vessel of a sacred body of knowledge or philosophy and to know that your life is about the precious thing you carry. This may be an idea, a talent or even a prophetic gift. To feel born into an idea or situation.” 
Markeb 28º ~ “Profitable journeys in company with Jupiterian and Saturnian people wherein the native is grave and discreet but suffers much injury, which ultimately turns to good. [4b]
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 Virgo decan 3 the ‘sacred harlot’ behaviour will be most notable in love relationships. As said in the general section, sex is extremely important to these folk with some being very promiscuous or, in modern parlance, polyamorous! (See Playboy magnate Hefner is on the list below) On the other side of the scale, their sexual relationships are held as sacred. These folk will be the most successful wheeler and dealers since the decan’s ruler Mercury is associated with merchants and Venus is money. Both thee planets can be charming and fickle, flitting from one lover to the other. Other factors in the chart will be needed to ensure fidelity and a stable marriage. With Alkes here we find great talent with the subject being inspired by their many muses and interests.
ASCENDANT VIRGO 3 EXAMPLES: Charles II, Winston Churchill, Franklin D Roosevelt, Silvio Berlusconi, Hugh Hefner, Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Erin Brockovich, Marie Stopes, Paul McCartney, Roy Orbison, June Carter, Julie Andrews, Debbie Harry, Annie Lennox, Olivia Newton-John, George Melly, Doris Day, Sissy Spacek, Kevin Costner, Bruce Willis, Kathy Bates, Tom Hanks, Shirley MacLaine, Nigel Havers, Jason Connery, Derek Jacobi, Cybil Shepherd, Carol Channing, Brooke Shields, Jerry Hall, Igor Stravinsky, Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, Azaria Chamberlain, Amanda Blair, Amanda Knox, Ernst Roehm, Tiger Woods.
