Mercurial Messages: November Horoscope — Diving Deeper


We don’t want shallow answers as November begins — we want to understand hidden secrets and soul mysteries as the Sun and Mercury in Scorpio, trine intuitive Neptune and call us deeper. This lineup supports meditation, imagination and divination, but it can leave us confused about the truth and other people’s determined motivation, right through voting day. So reel in projections and fact-check all rumors.

Look for strong women and the collective Anima working to create change as Venus trines eccentric Uranus around November 5. Mars enters collective Aquarius on voting day and encourages us to care about our community. A new determination to get information and get to work flows in as Venus enters Capricorn November 11 and Mercury enters Sagittarius November 12. On November 15-22, confusion wafts in as Mercury squares Neptune; while it’s for spiritual practice and creative process, we can’t see farther ahead at the moment and may have to reevaluate our plans.

Thanksgiving takes us back to our tender hearts as Venus conjuncts Pluto. Include strays around your table and bring emotional depth to your feast. Feel the exciting winds of change stirring towards the end of the month as Mercury and Venus aspect change-master Uranus.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Notice mysterious fragments of unusual psychic awareness, but fact-check your insights before jumping to conclusions. Find creative ways to manage tension or competing desires in your team or community after November 8. Recent work frustrations begin to relax as new information arrives around November 15, but be patient about implementing changes.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)...Expect the unexpected this month; look for fresh people or opportunities the first week of November, and again the last week, as your ruling planet, Venus, first trines, then squares, Uranus. Step forward steadily but with flexibility, mid-month through Thanksgiving as plans continually shift around you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)…The first week can be uncomfortable, jittery with other people’s tension; let their circus flow by and stick to what you can actually change. The atmosphere works better for you after November 9, though you may have to work to stay on task. Be open to challenging ideas that stretched you mid-month. Behave through Thanksgiving and life opens up the week after.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)…Prioritize family, whether chosen or biological, but don’t get too attached to a specific response from them. It’s easy to feel disappointed that they don’t love back in the specific form you’re looking for, particularly through mid-month’s misunderstandings. Open your aperture and see love given in their language.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…Politics may not be your favorite thing, but you can get caught in the crossfire of other people’s stubborn opinions. You don’t have to engage or avoid the conflict, just witness and love all the people involved. When others relax around Thanksgiving, you may need to wrangle important information and decisions.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…You’re standing at a crossroads, juggling people, information and possibilities coming in many directions. Stay centered and prioritize your efforts based on long-term goals. Reconnect to the heart mid-November, and stayed centered during an emotional roller coaster through Thanksgiving.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Pay attention; create a sustainable ecology out of your material resources and you will feel freer to follow your inner light. Responsibilities to friends, siblings and neighbors need to be followed up this month but can bring moments of joy. Look for creative collaboration after Thanksgiving.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Whether to be seen or to stay hidden is always one of your dilemmas; as November begins you may hide your private feelings behind an unusually public face. People are watching your public persona; you can make a difference in your surroundings. Sidestep tension around siblings and home life, it will not further. Add kindness to your direct honesty throughout the Thanksgiving holiday.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Enjoy funny and loving moments hidden in the work this month. Look for ways to share humor, heart and truthful support. Use an opening to help create a breakthrough. Let Thanksgiving weekend bring deep questions within the family, with meditations on purpose and gratitude.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan.19)…Stay on track and organized, and don’t let yourself be sidetracked by other people’s circus through November 8. Creative process can reconnect you with heart and path mid-month; let sacred time soften the soul through the end of the month.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Roll through a potentially uncomfortable first week, then look for an opportunity to take leadership or make overtures through mid-November. Stay diplomatic even when others don’t. Old friends support you if you reinvest in the relationship.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…Protect yourself around other people’s stormy moods the first week of November. You come alive mid-month when everybody else is feeling confused; use your intuition and compassion to help others accept the moment and adjust their plans. Thanksgiving will be emotionally complex, with positive changes following.
