A lot of action in the skies in November, but not all of it will necessarily affect you directly. The sun, new moon eclipse, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn cluster in the sign of Scorpio this month. But the sign of Scorpio represents your mild-mannered solar 9th house, where ideas go to quietly rest and germinate, preparing themselves for big doings later in your life. You can think of the 9th house as the house of decisions made after careful consideration and judgment. Interestingly, it is also the house of long-distance travel, and you may do some this month, as you have the stars for it.
The 9th house is also the house of higher education. If you are busy pursuing your Bachelor’s degree or involved in a teaching or education-related profession, then these influences may be addressed to you. Essentially, Saturn will give you feedback about how you’re doing, and the eclipse may give you a sense of a new beginning in your educational life. The eclipse itself takes place on the 13th of the month, which represents the peak of the Scorpio energy. The eclipse could also represent turnover in your educational life, such as new teachers coming into your life or meeting new people through education.
The sun itself is in Scorpio until the afternoon of the 21st if you live in the US, which is when Venus enters the sign to remain until mid-December. Before the 21st, Venus hangs out in one of your financial houses, not trying to cause any trouble, and normally problematic Uranus in your other financial house is sliding backward. Uranus in your sector of possessions and income had been fighting with Pluto, but he’s backed off for the moment. This may benefit your ability to earn income or spend it, for that matter. You can buy things with a little less hassle from the universe.
Your ruler Neptune is in major snooze mode for at least the first half of November, and will gradually start to rouse himself a tiny bit mid-month. If you are born at the very beginning of your sign, you may feel a similar sense of snoozing and trying to gradually rouse yourself.
On a less sleepy note, there is some energy in your 10th house of visibility, reputation, and career. Time to pay attention to how you present yourself to the world because it is looking to see how you appear. Be mindful of how you dress and how you speak.
The one potentially negative element of the month comes via a lunar eclipse in Gemini in your sector of home and residence. You have a certain amount of protection in this sector thanks to Gemini, but a lunar eclipse sometimes signals some sort of loss or ending with regard to your residence. People affected by Hurricane Sandy at the end of October have already seen the effects of this eclipse, as eclipses sometimes show their effects a month ahead of or behind schedule.
