Everything doesn’t have to happen all at once; pace yourself, but make sure to keep on keepin’ on, lover.
March 21 to April 19
Think of November as a play in two acts. The first half of the month is when you’re meant to gather information, and after Nov. 18, it’s time to put it to use. Your performance will be a mess in the second act if you rush through the first. Allow your progress to come in stages, without projecting your fears onto what simply hasn’t developed yet. Take your time to sift through your reactions so that you can keep it constructive, my love.
April 20 to May 20
Sometimes it’s tempting to focus on what everyone under the sun is doing except yourself, because looking at you can be painful. This month you’re on call for some meaningful introspection—it doesn’t need to be heavy, but there’s no point in phoning it in either. What you do needs to reflect your heart, or you end up sacrificing wellness in your search for success. The trouble is, you can’t truly thrive if you’re not right with yourself. Call in the wisdom you need to stay on track.
May 21 to June 21
Life is full of contradictions. If you get too in your head, you lose track of your instincts, and if all you attend to is your instincts, you’re likely to forego strategy. The first half of November is challenging your sense of order and trying to get you to align spiritually. Your soul may seem like an abstraction, but it’s not; it’s your heart of hearts, and you are its protector. Make sure that your actions reflect its needs this month.
June 22 to July 22
In order for your life to have balance, you need to have a certain amount of fluidity in both your personal and professional realms. When your life gets too rigid and one little thing goes wrong at work, it can have crap consequences personally too. November is likely to bring you some surprises that will provoke a change of heart. Invest in the big picture of your success instead of getting caught up in the parts, and temper your reactions with reason and compassion, Moonchild.
July 23 to Aug. 22
The tension between what you need and what you want has been plaguing you for some time, and November will only make the struggle more real. You may have a million obligations, but if they’re choking your quality of life, this is the time to get real about it, so you can make some changes. Especially notice when and where you feel irritable as that will give you clues about where you’re off track with your true self. Nothing can replace the value of joy that comes from a life well lived, beloved.
Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
If you don’t accept the conditions of your present, you seriously mess with your ability to build a fantastic future. Worse, if you’re stuck in the past, all you’ll know is confusion and anxiety in the here and now. It’s time to "let go and let God" as they say. Release your attachments to how think things “should” be, and work with them how they are. If you’re going to obsess on something, let it be your own happiness, Virgo.
Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
Life isn’t symmetrical and fair, as much as we want it to be. You may have to deal with people or situations that seem unjust to you, but there's always a bigger picture to consider. Chose to improve your lot and not settle for lateral changes, Libra. Your desire to be accommodating is likely to be challenged by what you really want this month, especially after the Nov. 17. This isn’t the time for procrastination or indecision. Get moving and do your best, my love.
Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
Emotional patterns can get caught up in your blind spot and lead to all kinds of drama. The only way to change an unconscious tendency is to first become aware of it as it’s happening real time, and then to make different choices. It’s way harder than it sounds but also wildly important. How you relate to others is hugely important this month. Challenge yourself to step out of old ways of being that no longer serve you, so that you can have better, not just more.
Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Trade in your idealism for informed optimism this month, Sagittarius. You’re likely to be confronted by the gap between what you feel about people and situations versus what you’re actually seeing happen. If you chose to prioritize potential over evidence, you’re likely to feel pretty anxious, especially in the first half of November. Get real about your situation so that you can handle it with grace, even if that means sitting with some uncomfortable stuff, my love.
Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
You are not Joanne the Scammer, and this is real life. If you allow yourself to get carried away with unnecessary power struggles, your life will be consumed by pettiness and strife. If you’re gonna fight, make sure you’re fighting for something and not just to prove a point. People are constantly revealing themselves by way of their actions; pay attention to what you’re learning and what you’re putting out there this month, Cappy. The truth is true whether you want to deal with it or not.
Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Failure isn’t punishment or a life-sentence. It’s meant to teach you what to avoid and what to do better next time. When you have a healthy ego, it’s possible to be humble in the face of upsets, but when you think too little or too much of yourself, it can be utterly destroying. Confront how you feel about yourself, Aquarius. When self-love is conditional, it’s not really love. It’s time to let go of the ways you seek security over happiness and to get more whole.
Feb. 19 to March 20
If you don’t take care of your basic needs, you’re basically laying a cockeyed foundation for yourself. It’s hard to know what you need, and once you figure it out, how to communicate it effectively. That said, the first half of this month is going to give you opportunities to try, dear Pisces. Pay attention to how you handle what’s near and dear to you; if you don’t prioritize that stuff, it’s unrealistic to expect anyone else to, my love.
