This is another amazing month for you, Libra, and one that represents a fresh new beginning in matters of identity, values, and resources. Your finances are very much part of this picture, and as the month begins you may find them transforming in unexpected ways, leading you off into some very different directions. Your communication with cherished partners or business associates is also subject to dislocations of various kinds as this potent month of change begins to settle in. The November 8th Full Moon comes in the form of a total lunar eclipse, and is hence more powerful in its effects and more lasting in its impact. There are several ways to look at what is going on for you over the remainder of this month and year; perhaps a potential block in creativity that has long been somewhat active could be opposed by a yearning for breakthrough, or for fresh perspectives. Partnership agreements might also be subject to sudden innovation. Your principles, values, and beliefs are in flux as well, so that the way that you see the world around you might be very different after the New Year.

The month of November begins on the other side of a New Moon and solar eclipse in Scorpio from the last full week of October and that set the stage for the current month. What is highlighted for you is the part of your chart that relates to your material reality, your resources, what you value, and what you share with others. Your sense of security is likely in a state of flux at this time. It might also be that you are looking to invite broader opportunities into your life. You may feel a certain amount of dissatisfaction with your current engagements and a lack of recognition for your hard work. This month could find you pondering what you truly desire for yourself and perhaps finding ways to return to more authentic pathways without throwing the baby out with the bath water. What you love – and have been investing your energy on – could be put to the test and you may have to work through your fears or anxieties to find an enduring solution. Things change so that better factors can come in, when you can allow them to. Your ability to remain adaptable while still keeping your goals in mind could make all the difference this month.
This month also, Mars begins moving in retrograde motion through Gemini corresponding to your visions and other higher mind activities. This began in the final two days of October, and will be another major astrological indication for you moving forward. You will experience a thoughtful and introspective time for the remainder of the year and it could be that the influence of personal partners or business relationships will be influential in helping you to transition certain aspect of your beliefs and worldview.
Venus, your ruler, transiting in Scorpio until mid-November might emphasize relational and transactional themes, and more extensively topics related to visibility. There are also continued changes afoot in terms of family dynamics or your dwelling space.
The first week of November could highlight frustrations surrounding partnerships that are blocked or complicated with either a lack of reciprocity or acknowledgment. If this is not the case, it might be that you are weighing your loyalties to see which one of your alliances can endure versus which one may be a waste of time.
The Full Moon in Taurus arrives on November 8th and represents an extremely powerful juncture for you, being a lunar eclipse that forms an exact conjunction with Trickster Uranus while also coming into a close square with Saturn in Aquarius. The days following this Full Moon will illuminate your partnerships and the agreements that bind you to others. A culmination process might be taking place in relation to what you do for others and what they can do for you. There could be surprising events and unexpected revelations in this regard as well. The square from Saturn might also highlight the tension between your personal projects versus pre-existing commitments. There is a tendency now to vote for autonomy and to swing for the fences, and yet that might equally be reigned in according to the existing limitations. There may not be an easy way to reconcile the various elements that need your attention at this time, but Mercury in Scorpio coming into its superior conjunction with the Sun in the eclipse configuration may offer clarity in regard to what you truly desire and value. You might just have to rely on what your intuition and heart are telling you, with faith that the universe has your back. Hopefully, you can trust that what you need is coming to you.
From the 13th to the 14th, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio form a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn which can emphasize ongoing transformational pressures and support conversations taking place with family members or surrounding a domestic situation. Something may be coming to an end, and although things could feel emotional, progress could be made when you let go of what has outlived its purpose.
Things related to your financial stability and your everyday workflow might come up mid-month as Venus in Scorpio trines Jupiter in Pisces before entering the sign of Sagittarius. Your responsibilities could be shifting and you may need to adjust your schedule accordingly. If you have a lot on your hands already, the second part of November might feel even busier. Mercury enters Sagittarius on the 17th and the Sun follows suit on the 22nd auguring a period of increased communication and overall business.
The New Moon in Sagittarius arrives on the 23rd, just as Jupiter stations direct in the sign of Pisces. This progressive New Moon may allow you to gain more mobility and broaden your scope of your possibilities in the weeks ahead. Connecting with your surroundings and your community should feel stimulating and you may find a renewed sense of enthusiasm for your neighborhood and what it has to offer. Expect conversations and exchanges with others to bring new ideas and broaden your perspective, and perhaps help you bridge the gap between your pre-existing situation and where you would like to be.
Mars retrograde in Gemini in your vision sector could be mirroring this range of new possibilities and you may have your eyes set on a distant horizon. Mars forms a trine to Saturn in Aquarius, starting on the 24th and running until December, that brings partners into the picture of what you need to focus on for completion.
On the 28th and 29th Mars additionally opposes Mercury in Sagittarius which may help you conceptualize or formulate a plan for a vision that has been emerging. Dreams, plans, and visions take time to unfold, but you may get clues or insights in these last days of November that could help you take the next step into new territory.
