In some ways a carry-over from last month, Aries, with many of the same themes being expressed, November nevertheless offers new perspectives on your situation. This is in part due to the position of Mercury in late Libra, having completed its retrograde shadow phase by the early days of the current month. For the preceding period you have been reviewing and potentially revising how you do partnership, and now you are emerging into a month-long time of settling in. A new phase has in many ways begun in this area. The dynamic New Moon of the 4th represents a fresh start, including innovations in how you see the balance of self and other, and for your values in general. Important partners in your life might also be able to contribute in some manner to your conception of career and professional goals. This is, all in all, a dynamic month of further changes as you continue attempting to act strictly upon your bottom-line principles and nothing else; this is a tall order although by now you are beginning to get the hang of it.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
Mercury was retrograde in Libra for half of October, followed by its two-week retrograde shadow aftermath, so just straightening out as November begins. This has emphasized your collaborations and perhaps highlighted any relational dynamics that need to be adjusted. Power struggles could also have come up for you, especially if the compromises with partners do not feel equal. Getting along with others could have felt more challenging, and yet the rewards of sorting it out might be worth the trouble you have been dealing with.
You may now find yourself in the process of weighing the pros and cons of your involvements with others as the month of November begins. The New Moon in Scorpio on November 4th signals the beginning of a new cycle for intimate and also business partnerships. However, an exact opposition from the New Moon to Uranus in Taurus also indicates that you may need innovative solutions over the course of the following weeks when it comes to the agreements you have with others, especially if you are looking for more autonomy. You may be trying to branch out on your own while realizing that what holds it all together is tightly linked to the support of someone else in your life. It may be possible to gain more autonomy in the months ahead but, for the time being, you may have to work within the constraints of a partnership or an organization.
Venus enters Capricorn on the 5th where she will be transiting for an exceptionally long time due to her moving retrograde in late December and most of January 2022. Venus will be in Capricorn for the next seventeen weeks which emphasizes the career and vocational sector of your solar chart and perhaps prompts a review of your ambitions in the following months. Venus relates to what we love and you may come to realize that you need to make more room in your life to follow your passions. It may be time to shed old ideas surrounding success and make room for a more creative process to emerge. This should happen quite naturally over the next three months and all you have to do is be willing to look at where you may have become overly preoccupied with societal or familial expectations as opposed to your own. This may require that you first acknowledge some of your fears related to following your own path before you can find greater ease in that area of your life.
The First Quarter Moon in Aquarius on the 11th may emphasize the pressure to conform to some kind of conditions in order to continue being supported. You may once again be conflicted between your desire for greater financial autonomy and the progress that can be made through an organization or a group offering their support. Things could ease off considerably and you may start to gain more insight on your current dilemmas by the 15th when the Sun in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Aquarius. However, Mars in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus from the 16th to the 19th could highlight the unsustainability of a financial scenario.
The Taurus Full Moon of November 19th is a Lunar Eclipse. If something has to change, the Eclipse may point to it, as it takes place in the part of your chart that relates to your own resources and more extensively your sense of self-worth. A ton of momentum is available for you now to gain a greater sense of autonomy. You also may have to think outside of the box to find innovative solutions that allow you to step outside of your comfort zone.
The Sun entering the Fire sign of Sagittarius on the 21st could feel like a breath of fresh air, carrying the emphasis over to the part of your chart that relates to learning, philosophy, and broader intellectual framework. Then Mercury follows suit on the 24th, which amplifies this. Your perception should benefit greatly from the Sun and Mercury transiting here in the following weeks. Your own ideas about the world may be highlighted and changed in some ways.
The last week of November could bring positive developments for things that were blocked in the first half of the month. New opportunities related to learning or teaching might present themselves and it may be easier to network with like-minded people that can help you to progress in the world. Stay open to trying new things, especially when it comes to the ways in which you make money, even though your resources might be in a state of flux. You may be closer than you think to realizing a goal.
