November opens up with Mars and Mercury in your sign, with the sun following on the 21st. Mercury actually retrogrades out of your sign by the 14th, one factor in making November a really mixed month for Sagittarius astrologically. Mars in your sign addresses you personally, giving you energy for whatever is on your plate. On the 16th, though, Mars moves on.
In Capricorn for the rest of the month, Mars becomes more interested in your possessions and practicalities. With Pluto in the same sector for many years to come, this is part of an ongoing push by the planets to get you to be practical and organized when it comes to your stuff. That makes the second half of November a good time to do practical things like make sure your auto is tuned up for the winter. It’s also a good time to make other similar preparations – get a good pair of boots and so on.
There are also two eclipses this month, one is Scorpio on the 13th and another in Gemini on the 28th. Eclipses are wild cards, hard to predict. Some of you will be affected this month, others already have been, others will feel effects next month, and some won’t be affected at all. The one in Scorpio coincides with the entry of Saturn in this sign.
Saturn is the planet that nags us, and it is greatly at odds with the Sagittarian nature. It’s in your job and health sector now. One of Saturn’s tasks over the next couple of years will be to scold you about any unhealthy habits you have. Or you may experience Saturn as a nagging boss or annoying work responsibilities that you just have to buck up and deal with. But the Scorpio eclipse also indicates that this is the perfect time for you to turn over a new leaf at work or in your health maintenance practices. Some of you will have the chance to get a new job or begin the process of interviewing and preparing for a new era in your work life.
The eclipse in Gemini on the 28th relates more to your relationships. If you have doubts about a primary relationship, the eclipse may give you the urge to seek freedom from it, to bring some relationship situation to an end. Neptune in your home life sector also stations this month, on the 11th. The one-two punch of Neptune and the eclipse may have some Sagittarians wanting to make pretty substantial changes to their home life. This is more likely to affect married Sagittarians; single ones still have good vibes for romance.
