November will be a big improvement over October. The new moon of October 19 was very difficult, along with an opposition of unpredictable Uranus to the Sun and moon. Most people – not only Capricorns – felt quite a bit of tension in the latter part of October. That new moon appeared in your prestigious career sector, and it may have brought up a challenge to your professional reputation or an unexpected twist to the course of your career that you did not expect, straight out of the blue. You might have also heard you have to move or change your living arrangements, again, suddenly.
If your birthday that falls on January 17, plus or minus five days, or you have Capricorn rising 26 degrees, plus or minus four degrees, you felt Uranus opposition the new moon and Sun last month in a personal way. If your birthday falls at other days of Capricorn, you are not likely to have felt that new moon too strongly, not unless you have a natal planet in Capricorn or Cancer at 26 degrees
Whatever came up last month will take time for you to fix, because new moons have a long period of influence that can be as much as six months. The harsh part of this aspect is over, however, so by now you know what needs to be done.
This month will be far gentler, lighter, and bring a touch of glamour. The full moon of November 3 (or 4 depending on your time zone) will be in fellow earth-sign Taurus, at 12 degrees, and light your house of true love and romance. You are due for quite an enchanting weekend the minute the month takes off. The full moon of November 3/4 certainly has stars twinkling brightly for you, for Pluto will be so beautifully angled to the Sun and new moon, bringing friends into the picture, and showing you how much they care about you. Romantic Neptune,
not to be outdone, will bring opportunity for a magical, sparkling episode in love over that full moon. You might take a quick trip over the weekend too,
starting Friday night, November 3, through Sunday, November 5. I hope you can hop in the car and go!
If your birthday falls on January 2, plus or minus five days, you will get a double dip of pleasure from this full moon. The same is true if you have Capricorn rising 12 degrees or the natal moon in Capricorn at that degree, and in both cases, apply a plus or minus five degrees. You will also benefit in a different way if you have a natal planet in Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus, Pisces,
Scorpio, or Cancer at 12 degrees, plus or minus five degrees.
This month, Mars will brilliantly light your prestigious career sector (tenth house). Mars will see to it that you easily get your foot in the door of higher-ups,
and once there, to prove your worth. This is the first time in two years that you’ve had Mars in Libra, the place you want it to be to get ahead professionally. After Mars leaves on December 9, it will be two more years before you will welcome Mars back. You need to make the most of Mars’ presence,
for he will give you energy, motivation, and drive to get ahead.
Speaking of career, you have a banner day coming up on Monday, November 13, when Venus will have her annual meeting with good fortune Jupiter. Venus is the natural ruler of your tenth house of fame and honors, so you may hear about a professional breakthrough on this day that comes along with good financial news. (Whenever Jupiter is present, money usually is, too.) They will meet in Scorpio, which is your house of people/events/colleagues/friendships, so if you are invited to a party in your profession, you must go, for you are likely to pick up an important tip or piece of information. Besides, with silky Venus spreading her charm, the event is sure to be elegant, with soft lighting,
delicious tidbits, wine, and well-dressed, successful people in attendance – people just like you.
Later that week, on Thursday, November 16, you have another lovely aspect, this one also quite romantic, and likely leading you to a party or special occasion dinner. It also looks like you’d have to drive a short distance to get there. Neptune in Pisces will contact Venus in Scorpio, a sparkling configuration. This month will be more social than next month, so live it up, dear Capricorn. Because Venus rules your solar tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement, you may be given a project with room to showcase your most imaginative, original ideas.
November will be your productive month of the last quarter of 2017, because next month Mercury will be retrograde from December 3 to 22. I don’t recommend taking a job when Mercury is out of phase. I also don’t recommend you buy electronic items next month either. (Shop for holiday gifts now, not next month! All the express delivery services will have problems making their appointed rounds – they are RULED by Mercury too, so if you wait too long, your relatives and friends won’t get your gift in time. Shop for toys first! We don’t want to disappoint the little munchkins.) Finally, do not sign contracts in December and no, you can’t rush to sign on December 1 or 2 – those dates are already too late to do so now, as Mercury will have slowed to a crawl by then.
This theme of being with others in a social setting will echo through the month many times over. Yet, the biggest message is that you must socialize, and it will come at the extraordinary new moon in Scorpio, 25 degrees, on November 18. It’s time to let go, relax, have a glass of wine or champagne, and say hello to new people.
When this new moon appears in your eleventh house of friends, people, and events,
the Sun, Venus, and Jupiter will greet this new moon – what a sweet group of planets. Unlike last month, this month there will be no crosscurrents to spoil the pudding. This new moon’s only mission will be to make you happy. If you were considering the idea of joining a club, either social or professional in nature, you can do so, and you’ll enjoy going to events – do so after November 18.
This eleventh house, where the new moon will appear, also rules your hopes and wishes, so this could be the beginning of working toward finally attaining a desire you’ve held close to your heart for a very long time, either material or spiritual. In this enchanting month, anything is possible, dear Capricorn.
If your birthday falls on January 16, plus or minus five days, this new moon has your name written across its face. You will feel the affects very strongly, but I will add most Capricorns will do so – you will simply feel it more. The same is true if you have Capricorn rising 26 degrees, plus or minus five degrees, or the natal moon, also in Capricorn, with the same degree and tolerance. If you have any natal planet at 26 degrees in Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus, Cancer,
Scorpio, or Pisces, you will find that planet is lit up and will bring you good news.
One last piece of news you should find heartening and perhaps give you something to ponder: Saturn, your ruler, has been in great collaboration with Uranus all year and will continue to do so next year, 2018, until early September. It is so rare for these two powerful planets to work with each other, because it takes Saturn 29 years to circle the Sun, and Uranus takes 84 years. To position them in the perfect mathematical spot in the sky is extraordinarily rare, but that is what is happening now.
Uranus is the planet of experimentation, disruption, creativity, and genius. Saturn is the planet of solidity, structure, foundations, and caution. Together they will blend energies for the perfect balance. The message is clear: Experiment and be sure to modernize elements in your life, for doing so is actually safer than standing still and taking the tried and true path. On November 11, these two planets will reach perfect mathematical alignment. You may want to use this day to make an important move.
The good news is that you need not be too stuck on the date November 11, for these two planets will remain within orb for a long time, within eight degrees, and most of the time, closer than that. The benefits of these two planets will be yours for months. You can now build a life, dear Capricorn, and it will reflect decisions that will stand the test of time, giving you pleasure as you see your work add up to something big.
