NOVEMBER 2018 MONTHLY HOROSCOPES By Jennifer Angel
A month to get straight about what you want and go for it!
Venus is in your love zone, so get ready to socialize, but as she is retrograde for the first half of November, be careful of accepting old habits back into your life. Mars highlights a financial opportunity that can come out of the blue, and possibly through a friend. A business opportunity can be good for your bank balance, too, so be prepared to kick start your competitive spirit. Get your long-term plans and goals in place for the future. This month, you can be idealistic as well as realistic – a perfect balance!
New Moon energy in your opposite sign, the area of relationships, gives you a new start with love. It can even be an opportunity to rebuild a friendship or situation with a co-worker. But don’t labor too much on what went wrong, sometimes, it’s best not to look back. Connections at work are valuable, and even if they can’t help you get ahead right now, they can come through for you in the future. Be careful with money matters, if you indulge in an indulgent spending spree, then make sure you do it consciously, not recklessly. Look for reliable ways to invest.
Full Moon energy in your sign can have you feeling like you don’t know what’s going to happen next. Remember, when life seems messy, it’s when things are about to change. During this month, make sure you focus on your health and wellbeing; don’t let it fall to the bottom of the list. Your love life is hot and happening over this next year. A social event or romantic rendezvous can turn out better than you think, but be careful not to force a situation, let it evolve naturally. Your career is busy, too. Get organized so you can achieve more than even you think is possible.
Your intuition is on fire this month, more so than usual, pay attention to it. And if you need time to yourself to reflect on life, then make sure you take it, those who know and love you will understand. This month, a creative project at work can get the green light. And if it’s love you’re looking for, you can cross paths with someone amazing, a relationship that can be unpredictable in some way, and possibly with someone from the past. If you are in a relationship, work together to move forward. Make time for your overall health and beauty so you feel on top of the world.
Your home and family affairs can have a new beginning in some way, a togetherness that brings everyone closer. If you have had an altercation with a friend or partner, you can now have a chance to patch things up, but you may need to be the one who opens your heart first. Keep in mind that differences are not always adversary, they can be complementary. With money and business, be creative, think big and think outside the box, and be prepared to negotiate.
Venus is retrograde in your solar second house and focuses your attention on money and security, as well on your self-worth and how worthy you feel of attracting what you want. Financial negotiations can come together, but don’t be in too much of a hurry. Play the chess game and let a negotiation take its natural course. The first half of the month is great for planning and the second for putting plans into action. Love is passionate; take control and tell someone how you feel. Family are close over this year, but don’t allow them to tell you what they feel you should or shouldn’t do. It’s your life to live.
This month brings new openings and options for work, particularly creative work and work that can provide a good financial return. However, as you move forward, be prepared to do more study or gather information that will assist you in a new venture. Set a solid plan for the future, and so you don’t get despondent, try not to schedule more than is humanly possible to achieve. And with Venus in your sign, love is hot in your stars. However, she is retrograde for the first half of the month, so beware you may need to deal with a post scenario. There is likely to be a situation that will require you to consider someone else’s feelings, suggestions and views.
This month’s new Moon is in your sign, and although there is plenty of activity in and around your sign, which can cause havoc, Moon energy helps you rise above any pettiness and look to the future with optimism. A positive attitude can overcome a lot of challenges. With money, get serious about a budget, and if investing, look at both the up and down side before parting with your hard-earned cash. Love can be special and romantic now, and if you are in a relationship, the main thing this month is to move your partnership to a more secure stage. For singles, look for someone who wants a commitment. Be careful of keeping secrets.
As Jupiter, your ruler, enters your sign, over this next year life can bring opportunities your way, but be careful not to just chase the dollar, it’s important to do what you love and love what you do. You’re one of the most inspired signs in the zodiac and your ability to cast your thoughts out to the universe with a grand plan in mind is a gift to be appreciated. But you also want to be realistic as to what can be achieved in a certain time frame. Full Moon energy in your relationship zone later in the month can heighten any tensions you may have encountered, but can also help you clear the energy to start afresh. Pay attention to your intuition.
An abundance of activity as well as Jupiter, in the sign before yours, will encourage you to get in touch with your grand dream. You will also be prompted to speak from your heart and say what you mean. But with cautious Saturn in your sign, you can take a step back and think through the consequences of your words or actions. A work project can have a stop/start effect with Venus retrograde, but will give you the time and space to fine tune. The second half of the month things can fall into place. Friends can be supportive now, and a conversation can clear the air. If love is destined, it will come together this month too, and in a passionate way.
The new Moon on the 7th opens the doorway for a new start at work; this is the commencement of your next 12-month career solar cycle. And with a virtual planetary traffic jam in your social area, events and get-togethers can present options for the future. A situation with friends and money can work out better than you think but think through all pros and cons before you do anything. In love, couples can deal with past irritations, with the option to forgive and forget, otherwise, there is also the option to part company and move on. For singles, consider what you are willing to compromise on.
A sudden development with family can have you rearranging your schedule, and if you are needed, then you will want to be there for them. A financial situation may not be within your control, but you can have an influence, and you have supportive people around you to offer advice. But don’t try to bring something to a close before everyone is ready; let it take its course. With Jupiter moving to your career zone, this is a year to set your sights high at work and go for your dreams. Love and intimacy is strong in your stars, and for love to be right, you need to feel it on a mind body and soul level. You can reconnect with someone from the past now, too.
