The emphasis for much of November is on others and the resources you hold in common. This isn’t always a comfortable fit: by and large you know you are better off and more secure with people playing a significant role in your affairs, but you dislike being told what to do or even feeling within yourself, that any individual or organisation possesses this capability. These issues centre predominately around your material and financial interests. Whether it’s your spouse, a romantic partner, close business associates or an important source of funding, get straight in your own mind what you want, before acting out of impulse.

april 20 - may 20
It has been quite a while, since others had so much say in your affairs. Perhaps more importantly, it has been an age since you’ve allowed them or have enjoyed any favourable outcomes as a consequence. You are overworked and underpaid, whether you are ordinarily proactive in the labour market, or are simply thinking over all the duties and obligations you’ve taken on board. The full moon in your sign helps you judge the consequences of the resolutions you have made and the decisions that eventuated. A more positive and fruitful outcome than you’d imagined, comes out of mixing with those from other walks of life.

You have plenty on your plate. What is more, you have the feeling that no matter what you do, you won’t be adequately rewarded for the sacrifices you have made. Cosmologically, take a long-term perspective on your situation, cultivating a patience that you never knew you had and remembering that any solution is more than a few months away. Close partnerships have been instrumental in bringing you to this point; plus there are two main scenarios of which you’ll be aware. Firstly, you may believe you’ve endured a surfeit of limitations. Secondly, are you comparing your input, to a contribution that seems hard to match?

Paradoxically, life proves to be a lot of fun, even if your domestic situation continues to demonstrate plenty of room for improvement. Taking a proactive stance on caring for your immediate environment is the wisest approach, even if this means expending energy and time that you really don’t have to spare. Health concerns are not going away; yet by the end of 2017 you have a clearer idea of what the future holds. Where you have abused the invaluable gift of life, it is time for you to accept a more practical perspective. This does not have to be so hard as it looks now; but it does entail embracing a few realities…

Matters of home and family come under the most favourable trends. The Sun and Moon, Venus and Jupiter all emphasise the foundations of your horoscope, translating quite literally to the circumstances of your private life and how well these reflect your emotional needs. November is therefore not the best month for you to reach for the stars in terms of your career goals, or to aim for a higher profile when it comes to your place in society. It is a great moment for healing rifts between the generations, to beautify your immediate surroundings or even to move house, if your present situation excessively cramps your style…

Arguments continue about the relevance of Mercury, when some would say your traditional ruler was supplanted more than two centuries ago by the dwarf planet, Ceres. Nevertheless, the namesake of the messenger to the gods, has particular significance. Its associations: including networking, neighbourhood activities, communication, using your mind and developing your skills are of constant importance. If you can find a realistic purpose and avoid spreading yourself too thinly, November is an ideal juncture to look beyond your customary parameters. You don’t have to stray far either, to promote a happier perspective…

september 23 - october 22
Although in most respects you seem relaxed and easy-going, when it comes to your financial position you exhibit a steely resolve. Any threat to your security isn’t something you’ll ever take lightly, while there is likely to be an element of secrecy and some factual details you always keep to yourself, even in the most loving relationship. Yet November heralds trends that encourage you to spread your net more widely. For your ship to come in you will need to launch it first and within reason, you must speculate to accumulate. So when it comes down to earning opportunities, don’t talk yourself into a situation less than you deserve.

You wait what seems like hours for a bus, then three turn up at once. This is the cosmic picture for you this month with a plethora of blessings highlighting your sign, particularly during the first three weeks and around the new moon on November 18. All of this takes a little getting used to, after the dearth of opportunities you’ve experienced of late. Such positive and encouraging circumstances immediately put you on your guard and you’re suspicious that everything seems so straightforward. Be reassured the only tricky factor about your situation, is striking a balance between your caution and a welcome exuberance.

During December, Saturn leaves your sign, not to return for decades to come. In the meantime, don’t wish away the days ahead, but use this period for sober reflection on the past three years. You have no problem with the second part of this equation, as you are naturally a philosophical soul despite your enviable and obvious bravado. The initial element probably runs contrary to your natural inclination though, whether drunkenness is involved or just high spirits. Yet the past few years cannot have taught you nothing; so don’t allow these harsh but entirely valuable lessons, to become a gigantic waste of effort.

Saturn enters your sign next month, for the first time since the early Nineties. This planet has a fearsome reputation, which is curious considering its iconic image as the archetypal celestial body. Some even equate its name to the devil of the Abrahamic religions, but as your ruling planet you rather acknowledge its arduous tutorials, help with what you want from life. Nevertheless, it is rare we find ourselves in ideal circumstances and often, compromises must be made. Where you have shouldered your responsibilities, your reward is due in kind. But where you’ve acted less commendably, the same unfortunately holds true.

Most likely, it is hard to accept life is going so well as the stars foretell. Yet the four brightest bodies in our limited and earthly sky, congregate at the apex of your horoscope this month, serving to let you know that things cannot get much better. Change is for certain, but this is nothing that won’t see improvement after the entire process completes. To the ancients, the Sun by day and the Moon at night were enormously auspicious portents, while Venus and Jupiter are the two most brilliant objects otherwise. Don’t judge yourself by other’s standards or criteria; just put it behind you. There has been an excess of this already…

Neptune finds a forward gear after five months of retrograde motion. This in itself is nothing unusual; but its presence in your constellation remains a once in a lifetime experience. Chiron insists on heading backwards for a little longer; through until the first week of next month. November appears on first glance to be a time of treading water, yet it is one where issues from the past come to light and so much as is possible under the nebulous influence of this planet, find some sort of basis for moving forwards. If ever there was a time to bring the principles of a belief system into your life, then this month is that crossroads.
