This month the Saturn/Uranus opposition breaks up as Saturn speeds through the first round of its seven-year sojourn through Libra and Uranus retrogrades back a pace in the sign of Pisces. This would lend a sense of relief except that Mars in Leo comes up to oppose Neptune and Jupiter in the independent minded sign of Aquarius and the planet of warfare challenges the secretive Sun in Scorpio much of the month.
Early November (the second to be precise) sets a bad tone for fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, for the month as a Grand cross in this modality has them saying and doing things that annoy people mightily. Of course it doesn’t help that they are feeling perpetually annoyed themselves since nothing is working out for them. This is the month to have plan A, plan B and plan C on the boards, as you are going to need all of them just to make it through the month.
Venus heads into sexy Scorpio after the first week revving up romantic visions of hot sweaty nights by the fireplace or corning the coworker with the come hither look in the broom closet.
This whole month plays like a wicked genie has been let out of the bottle. Getting through the month sanely is going to be quite a feat. You might want to keep your psychiatrist and your lawyer on speed dial just in case.
Big dreams and big plans drain your bank balance at a rapid clip. There is nothing wrong with living large, but you do have to have wherewithal so that you don’t do without down the road. This may be the time to put finances in the hands of trusted partner so you can concentrate on making big things happen. No fair gripping though when your partner tells you that sadly, no, there is no money for the latest toy you just have to have. Avoid fights over money, which just doesn’t lend itself to sweet make-up sessions after the blow up.
Normally you are a quiet person, so why this month do you feel the need to take a stand and speak your mind? Don’t do it! The first part of November has never been your cup of tea anyway. If you look back on some of you less sterling moments you’ll find a good portion of them are at this time that is the low part of your yearly cycle. Spend as much time in meditation as your busy schedule allows and do indulge in things that soothe your body as well as your mind. Curb your expenses so that you can have that nice Christmas you so richly deserve.
It may come as a shock to you, Gemini, but not everyone has your best interests at heart. Though your magical mental alchemy may enchant and delight, it does not necessarily endear you to others who may consider you charming but somewhat of a lightweight. This month, you get a glimpse of what other people really think about you, and this is unsettling to say the least. Avoid the urge to snap back in kind. You’ll have the tendency to overboard there, and really have egg on your face then.
Those in authority may make big demands on your time, causing you some mental angst. With things all cozy at home you are itching to spend some quality time with your nearest and dearest. However, don’t let your desires override your sense of responsibility. Buck up, Chipper and get that work done so you can spend some stress free time with your loved ones over the coming holidays.
If you could only see your chart right now! It looks like one of those geometric doodles you do on your pad during boring meeting at work, going over and over the same lines for added emphasis. Your chart this month is dominated by a t-square between the planet of action in your own sign, in tension aspect the Jupiter/ Neptune combo that’s been plaguing you all year, which is in turn in challenge aspect to the Sun and Mercury in Scorpio. Relationships are tense as you desire to make some forward movement and other people are in a holding pattern. If you push too hard, you can end up blowing it for good, so take a deep breath and count to ten before you say something you’ll really regret.
Just because everyone else is fighting, it doesn’t mean you have to get involved too. This would be an excellent time to practice neutrality in the personal arena, as other people will expect you to take sides or act as a go between for their own vicious battles. If you manage to navigate both sides of the fence, you’ll get to hear a lot of delicious secrets on both sides of the battle line/ though what you won’t hear is what they think about you as well. Good thing, because though you normally have a measured approach to life in general this month you could go a little overboard yourself. Practice patience.
With the planet of duties and responsibilities just crossing over your sign for a seven-year long sojourn you’ve yet to feel the impact that this will have on you. You manage to keep things light and social, though all around you, people are in some sort of battle. This is an excellent time for social and business networking to build up your contact list. Explore social media on the web. If you haven’t yet, set up your Facebook and Twitter accounts and learn the joys of electronic communication which right now comes naturally to you.
Could you feel any more restless? I don’t think so. You are so done with everything that happened in the past year, yet you have the same circumstances to deal with over and over again, like a bad rendition of the movie “Groundhog’s Day.” Nothing you do meets with anyone’s approval, thought the things people in authority want you to do doesn’t make sense. Friends want you to do wild things with them that you know in your heart of hearts isn’t the best use of your time, yet you risk alienating them if you don’t. It’s a delicate situation, one that needs some finesse. Look deep inside yourself for the answers to your dilemmas.
I am going to issue you a stiff warning, and for once Sag, you should listen to it. You’ve been energetic and applying yourself to steadily to the task at hand. Now you see some ways to utilize some short cuts, but don’t! It may look like you’ve pulled it off, but the only thing that you accomplished was giving someone else ammunition to use against you at a future time. What I said about Gemini, goes for you as well, not everyone is interested in protecting your interests. That you must do, and the best way to do it this month is to keep working in a steady and measured pace and resist the urge to speed on life’s highways.
What looks like a golden opportunity is just a temptation to go over board. Ol’ Beelzebub has more than a passing acquaintance with some of the things that make your eyes glitter, and this month you are especially vulnerable to seductive lures that take you down the wrong path. Beware of arrogance, overconfidence and ignoring the advice of your friends. In other words, check that ego at the door and pick up the ticket at the end of the month!
No matter what you do you seem to draw criticisms and conflicts. It’s not that you’ve changed, but rather other people seem to perceive a chip sitting on your shoulder. In addition other people seem to want to tell you every secret that they have drawing you into their nasty business. It doesn’t help that the stars prod you to rise to the bait. This month you should practice a circumspect demeanor, patience and keeping your nose in your own business. Think of this month as a character building exercise.
Affairs of the heart occupy your mind this month. Someone interesting crosses your path, making your heart race and kicking your active imagination into overdrive. Like a teenager you obsess over every glance, every word, and heavens forbid, a stray touch. Is this the one you’ve always waited for? Is this one that will love you completely? No. This is one situation where fools rush in where angels fear to tread. The person that crosses your path could just end up a passing fancy, hardly what passionate Pisces desires.
