In terms of Jupiter's new 13 month visit to your work sector and the major new opportunities this is set to create, especially for growth and expansion, the push to get things up to speed and through old barriers will be complete by midmonth. Where last month saw a series of partnerships between work and career forces form and was about shifting your professional focus onto the future and road ahead, this month is more about taking the trainer wheels off and getting on with the job of making things happen. Yet while the professional gods are smiling on you this month and will continue to smile on you for the rest of this year and beyond, you won't get away with making life all work and no play. From his position in an adventurous part of your chart Saturn was never going to allow that anyway, but it's the different balls you'll also be juggling that won't allow you to put all your eggs in one basket. This is always a month when there is a lot of focus on money matters, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of November in your financial sector. However, coming on the heels of Saturn's 3 year financial boot camp, this is more a chance to create a new starting point. Relationship matters, which should have run their course last month, are just heating up, with Venus' return to your relationship sector on the 9th November and Mars' on the 13th November kicking off the most important relationship months of the year. With Mercury, planet of communication wrapping up an epic 2 month visit to your relationship sector on the 2nd November, having the communication lines open from the get go is not only a must, but something you've been working on since late August.
An ongoing battle to find and maintain a balance between work and play heats up this week, with both sides pulling out the big guns. While Venus will leave a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 9th November and Mars on the 13th November, both returning to your work sector to get things moving on the work front, with powerful Jupiter staying behind he's not about to let the professional gods take over. And takeover they'll try for moving into November with your head in the game and in work mode, but also with Ceres in her early days in your career sector, is giving your professional year a new lease of life. Work and career forces that come into play this month will continue to evolve right through to January, making it clear that you won't be taking your professional hat off anytime soon. Yet with Jupiter not only staying on in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart but with support from adventurous forces, having the right balance between work and play is something you need to work on from the get go. You've also reached an important month for relationship matters, with the Sun in your relationship sector until the 23rd November Mercury, planet of communication here from the 2nd November to the 21st November and a New Moon on the 12th November creating an opportunity for a fresh start. With so many balls to juggle this month, but with the planet of communication on board, having the communication lines open is essential and should be relatively easy.
Over the last few months forces on the home and career fronts have moved into opposition 9 times, with one final standoff playing out from the 3rd November to the 9th November. This is the last chance to not only address any work/life balance issues, but to get right to the heart of your needs and priorities on both fronts. Your biggest challenge this month is appreciating that you can have it all, for with lucky Jupiter in your home and family sector this is not only an expansive and important time for home and family matters, it's an extremely well supported time. This is especially so when it comes to financial matters on the home and family fronts. At the same time, while career forces are under pressure, with the Sun in your work sector until the 23rd November, Mercury here from the 2nd November to the 21st November, a New Moon on the 12th November and the whole professional tide turning, your professional year is just starting to come together. With Neptune turning direct in your career sector on the 19th November and Chiron on the 28th November, those work/life balance reminders in the early days of the week will prove blessings in disguise by the end of the month and especially with all that is due to unfold over the coming months. However, another reason why having the right work/life balance is essential is Venus' return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 9th November and Mars' on the 13th November. While they'll eventually have a big impact on work matters over the coming months, for now they're more focused on finding the right balance between work and play.
Key to everything right now is balance and it's not just because life is getting busier as you move into the final 2 months of the year or that you're juggling too many balls. You're starting to realise that it really is a case of mind over matter and smart time management, with old excuses for why you don't have the time to do the things you want or need to do, no longer working. Yes, you're moving into busy times but you've got the means and support needed to work smarter and with the Sun in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart until the 23rd November and Mercury here from the 2nd November to the 21st November, the gods will be watching how well you manage a balance between work and play. There are also safeguards in place taking care of any work/life balance issues, with Venus the planet forcing the issue. As the month progresses you'll find pleasure from life's simple routines and you'll find that more and more home is where the heart is. Nothing will be sweeter than coming home after a busy day or slipping into those rituals or habits that are so important to you. In fact, it's an appreciation of life's simple pleasures that makes money far less of an issue than it's been all year. With a huge amount of untapped momentum on the income front you'll find that money starts to flow more smoothly anyway, but the real impact is coming from Ceres' return to your financial sector late last month. This is a chance to look beyond the money and over the coming months to completely redefine your definition of financial success. Across your personal and professional lives communication is essential.
While the focus is still on money matters this month and it's the money gods that are making the loudest noise and working the hardest to get your attention, life is opening up in a way that is putting money matters into perspective. In the early days of the month there is still likely to be at least some financial tension, with the last of 10 oppositions between income and financial forces over the last few months playing out from the 3rd November to the 9th November. The timing is crucial, for with Venus leaving your income sector on the 9th November, Mars on the 13th November and the North Node returning on the 12th November, a changing of the guard on the income front will very quickly see financial tensions turn into motivation. For the first time since 1980 you'll have Jupiter and the North Node, both extremely lucky forces, in your income sector at the same time and it will stay that way until September 2016, making any wakeup calls now and over recent month's blessings in disguise. Once income and financial forces get out of each other's way and especially with a financial turnaround later in the month, you'll appreciate how timely these wakeup calls have been. However, it's not always just about the money, though with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of November in your home and family sector and on friendly terms with financial forces, this does bode well for financial matters on the home, family and/or property fronts. Ironically, just as income and work forces start coming together and especially after the push from a Full Moon in your career sector in the final days of October, as the month progresses fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged forces will not only demand your attention, but make it harder to hide behind your excuses.
This is the month when the traffic clears and left standing is Jupiter, bringing you to a point where until now you've felt that there was something different to the launch of this new solar year and there is no longer any doubt. There is just one more hurdle to get through, with the universe throwing up some roadblocks in the early days of the month, especially from the 3rd November to the 9th November. However, with Venus leaving your sign on the 9th November, this will provide the wakeup calls that make it clear where your heart stands. If you feel like throwing your toys out of the playpen in protest, then this has done its job. Until Mars leaves your sign on the 13th November you're still establishing what excites you and it's his departure that leaves lucky Jupiter as the last planet standing and he's not going anywhere. It's the North Node's return to your sign on the 12th November, though not a planet and instead a force, that will give the future and this new Jupiter cycle a sense of direction. While there will be some positive developments on the income fronts this week, the real gift that any personal and/or relationship tensions in the first 9 days of the month bring is the support that kicks in to turn this into an opportunity for a breakthrough. Pressure peaks from the 3rd November to the 9th November with Mercury, planet of communication's return to your communication sector on the 2nd November, putting him here in time to turn this into an opportunity for a breakthrough. While romantic forces have been enjoying some much needed support for several months now, relationship forces finally get the same level of support, just as the tide turns, this time for the better.
While your birthday month ended 8 days before you moved into the new month, it's clear that you're nowhere near ready to commit to anything. Even Mercury, in his final hours in your sign before leaving on the 2nd November, knows that it's too soon to set anything in concrete, so while encouraging you to explore your options, is also encouraging you to keep your mind and your options open. For it's not until Venus returns to your sign on the 9th November and Mars on the 13th November that your heart will become involved and you'll get a sense of not only what you want from this new solar year, but of what excites you. While Venus will leave early next month Mars will remain in Libra until the early days of January, seeing out the rest of the year here and giving you until the New Year to decide what new quests you'll throw yourself into. While developments on the work and income front will see a steady progression on both fronts as the month progresses, with a real turnaround on the work front by the end of the month, playful and adventurous forces will ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. With Ceres spending her first full month back in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and a Full Moon in an adventurous part of your chart on the 26th November and especially with Venus, planet of love on board, a life that is all work and no play is no longer an option. It's towards the end of the month that your relationships will get a boost, thanks to Mercury's return to your communication sector on the 21st November and the Sun's return on the 23rd November.
Whether you are an October or a November born Scorpio, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of November in your sign this is when the Sun overhead is the Sun you were born into, making this far more important than simply having a birthday. You were born under a Scorpio Sun and while the other planets at the time made an imprint on your cosmic DNA, by far the biggest influence was the Sun. This brings you back to the start of a new solar cycle and a chance for a mini rebirth. Every birthday is a rebirth, it was the years that Saturn spent in your sign that raised the bar high, asking that you not only commit to a new solar year, but your life moving forward. For the first time since 2012 the Sun returned to find Saturn gone, so there are a lot less demands on you this year, but in saying that you're a lot more aware of what it means to be true to yourself. As well as Saturn and his high demands and expectations gone, missing is any kind of urgency and while a New Moon on the 12th November will bring a chance to commit to this new solar year, the future and the journey ahead, even by the time the Sun leaves on the 23rd November the gods don't seem to be in any kind of hurry. Instead, with Venus not returning until early next month and Mars not until early in the New Year, you have permission to keep your mind and your options open. In the meantime, you've reached an important month for both personal and professional networking and friendship building, but with a professional push having run its course last month there'll be time to slow down and smell the coffee.
While the Sun's return to your sign on the 23rd November will not only kick off your birthday month and new solar year, but one of the most powerful in 3 decades, this is one year where the lines between the past, present and future are likely to be blurred. When Mercury returns to your sign on the 21st November he will become the first planet to meet up with Saturn in Sagittarius since 1987, with the Sun's return 2 days later creating your first chance to move into a new solar year with powerful Saturn leading the way in 27 years. It's the time that Saturn has already spent here, both from the 24th December 2014 to when he retrograded back out on the 15th June and since his return on the 18th September that has given you time to start taking your power back, to a point where even before the Sun returns it may feel like your birthday month has begun in all but name. Yet you still have to go through the motions of closing down an old solar year, even though you spent the last 3 years closing down a 3 decade long Saturn cycle. Chances are you've resolved most of the past's demanding issues, with the closing weeks of this old solar year more a chance to cruise the slow lane when you get a chance, taking time out to smell the coffee and hear yourself think. However, chances are there won't be much time for navel gazing, not with career and income forces keeping you busy and an important month on your hands for personal and professional networking, team and friendship building.
While the professional gods are keeping things in play, the dynamics are set to shift dramatically as the month progresses, at a point in the year when the push career matters will normally get in September and October each year should be over. While the Sun left your career sector late last month, with Mercury here until the 2nd November, even without this month's events you would still move into the month with your professional hat on. The North Node, in your career sector since February 2014, leaves on the 12th November, leaving you with a clear sense of direction and path forward, but it's Venus' return on the 9th November and Mars' on the 13th November that turns this from a chapter that has been more about getting a sense of what's possible into one that is a lot more hands on, ready to make things happen. However, while the professional gods will do their best to demand your full attention, with Jupiter not only staying on in an adventurous part of your chart but a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences reaching fever pitch by the time Mars leaves on the 13th November and a Full Moon in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 26th November, you won't get away with letting life become all work and no play. This is also an important month for personal and professional networking, especially in the first three weeks of the month, with a New Moon on the 12th November creating an opportunity for a fresh start and new beginnings. However, from the 23rd November you'll be ready to put out the 'do not disturb' sign, as you begin the month long wind down of your old solar year.
While there is still a lot of focus on money matters this month, with financial and income forces still butting heads, by midmonth the fog of war will clear to reveal just how well positioned you are and how this has worked to your advantage. By the time you move into November 9 out of 10 oppositions between financial and income forces that have played out over recent months are over, with the final standoff running its course from the 3rd November to the 9th November. However, with Venus in your financial sector until the 9th November, Mars until the 13th November and both supporting lucky Jupiter as he gets things up to speed, it won't take much to turn financial tension into motivation, especially with your financial desires, passions and fighting spirit fuelled. Even on the income front these wakeup calls will prove invaluable, for with support from the Sun in your career sector until the 23rd November, from Mercury between the 2nd November and the 21st November and the tide turning on the income front from Neptune's direct turn in your income sector on the 19th November, these wakeup calls come at the right time. By the end of the month income and financial forces will be stronger because of these standoffs, but they'll also be in their own separate lanes and it will be months before they meet each other again. While November is always a month when the solar spotlight is on career matters, especially in the first three weeks of November, the professional gods are in no hurry and with Venus not returning to your career sector until early next month and Mars until the New Year, there's a chance to take things slowly. Even if you wanted to throw yourself into this, there is a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences in the air this month that can't be ignored.
It was a Full Moon in your communication sector in the closing days of October that holds the key to managing the early part of the month, when personal and relationship forces are still at loggerheads. For months now a series of oppositions between the planets moving through your relationship sector and those defending your own rights have created the potential for personal and/or relationship tensions, with the last of 10 oppositions playing out from the 3rd November to the 9th November. Yet thanks to the push from a Full Moon in the later days of October and the fact that from the 2nd November Mercury, planet of communication will be in a much better position to lead this support, this creates the potential for a real breakthrough. What you might not realise is that rather than a sign that something is wrong, any tension has been a good sign, for as the biggest surge in relationship forces in over a decade hits, your own needs are fighting back. By the time Venus leaves your relationship sector on the 7th November and Mars on the 13th November you'll be in a much better position to know what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, with the early months of a major relationship year making way for much easier but more authentic times. In the meantime, Venus and Mars will shift their focus onto money matters, with Venus in your financial sector until early next month and Mars until the New Year, on a mission to fuel your financial desires, passions and fighting spirit, but also to boost your financial confidence. Yet this comes just as you're starting to wake up to the fact that life can't be all work and no play and that it's not always about the money.
