Until full moon, good going – after that some restraint is advised and be aware of arising irritations, says Sitara.

Mood of the Moment
Good mood until full moon. Afterwards, however, restraint is advised, in particular pertaining to your own words. Mercury in Scorpio is not really masterful in diplomacy and Jupiter in Leo will bite off more than he can chew. So irritations can easily arise which will not be so easy to straighten out. Inflammatory stuff is provided once again by the Uranus-Pluto square, although that’s not exact until December; yet the faster moving planets can be ignited both before and after the exactitude. This month it happens to be Mars, intensifying the already existing explosive energy. Saturn, however, dampens this every now and then by administering breaks, thus allowing all parties to go within and calm down.
The mood improves during the last third of November. However, there is a certain inclination to dress up situations or make nice talk. A little distance and a fresh look at your own relationships will disperse the misty veil of emotions. Moreover, Lilith in Virgo will contribute more objectivity. Her sober eye brings a beneficial clarity even if her criticisms may be harsh.
Aries: Mid-month could bring a great autumn storm, so you’d better lash down all that which could chaotically fly around your ears. Make peace in your life: outwardly (if possible) and inwardly (always possible). Peace is created through three things: 1. avoiding the things that work you up, 2. taking deep breaths and doing what calms you down, 3. optimism. After the storm things might come to a standstill at first. Allow it to happen, because very soon new positive forces will stir.
Taurus: Unfortunately your wish for an easy life does not lead automatically to more surrender and openness – the only attitude that really makes life easier. Rather, this wish may develop into a claim demanding that life opens all the doors for you without you having to do anything. A certain effort is needed – but stay relaxed and more optimistic about everything. If you exert pressure in order to get what you want, then the shot often backfires.
Gemini: Enjoy the first half of November. Although more depth will be called for, you’ll mostly feel confident and relaxed. Interactions run smoothly, and you’re in a position to quickly overcome any interference. Only in the last week of November difficulties may arise due to far too high expectations you feel exposed to. Since you can’t change other people so fast, start by changing your own attitude: scale down your perfectionism a peg.
Cancer: The beginning and end of November could be a bit exciting, but generally this is a rather quiet month. You are moving from consolidation to expansion. First of all create a good foundation for yourself: tackle things one at a time, and take care to clarify, tidy and organise everything. Then, during the last third of the month you can lift off – developing visions and aiming for new goals. The Sagittarius new moon brings an opportunity to expand our horizon, which is less comfortable but all the more exciting.
Leo: The first week brings you new insights. Power and modesty are in a pleasant balance. After the full moon it’s about staying aware, as you have a tendency to go over the top. Your demands quickly hit the roof with the result that you’re unsatisfied, and many things get on your nerves. However, the attempt to force life into fulfilling your wishes makes everything more unpleasant, because it cannot succeed. In the last third of November the full moon furthers more zest for life and confidence.
Virgo: Use the first two weeks to get your projects off the ground or moving along. Like for many others, this fortnight is more agreeable. In the second half of November you easily get drawn into power struggles. However, this also heralds an important phase in your life because, with the onset of Lilith in your sign (remaining there until September 2015), it will be about the development of your own strength and independence. Both can manifest itself externally, but what counts is your inner strength and inner freedom.
Libra: There are a few rocks to steer your ship around this month. You have all the resources that you need, although you’re not always conscious of them. Your best strategy when meeting with difficulties is to remind yourself of what you’re good at. Maybe you think the strengths you remember have no influence on the situation. But the very fact that you remember them has an effect because it changes you, putting you in a position to overcome problems.
Scorpio: The positive October influence still holds; you’re in a conciliatory mood and willing to compromise. From the second third of November onwards it’s about creative confrontation. Get assistance to help you achieve the best possible result and to develop a playful ‘conflict structure’ supported by love. Multiple influences assail you now: sometimes giving in is appropriate, at other times self-assertion, and then again a complete let-go. Your greatest stumbling block is your desire for a perfect world.
Sagittarius: In the first half of the month sum up which thought and communication patterns you can shelve now. What have you realised during recent months? Your insights open new opportunities in your relationships. However, you again and again tend to be naive judging others by your own standards or also expecting them to appreciate you unconditionally. Unfortunately it’s not all that easy. Trust takes time to grow. Think of new ways to reach others and meet them.
Capricorn: An exceptionally powerful month! If you can use this dynamic you’ll be able to move mountains. However, for your actions to have substance, always assure yourself about those who are to cooperate with you. For this purpose it is particularly important to recognise the strengths that hide behind their supposed weaknesses. What can you learn from them? Not everyone wants to ignore their own needs as you do. The more that gets on your nerves the more it’s worth to take yourself into consideration with more sensitivity.
Aquarius: Your greatest challenge comes in the second third of the month when the Pluto-Uranus square is activated again. Either you feel attacked through the activities of others, or, in anticipation, you become active yourself in order to use the high energy that opens up better options for all. At the end of the month Venus is placed ideally for entering into alliances, friendships or other relationships. You have to make a few compromises, but new impulses give you momentum and vitality.
Pisces: Now you are totally in the flow and can trust that life carries you in the right direction. Take the wheel in your hands, but only correct the general course every so often. However, in the last third of November tensions could arise, above all if you have completely stopped steering. It’s true that life guides you, but the paradox that you yourself are part of life also demands initiative and self-responsibility. Make an effort to see things clearly, perhaps with the help of good friends.
