Jupiter transits into the rather undiplomatic Sagittarius and since Jupiter is able to gain something positive from anything, Jupiter’s participation in the experiment will be in good humour. Best of all, Jupiter will now spend a full year focusing particularly on positive opportunities and will even tackle those situations cheerfully that drive others to despair, says Sitara.

Mood of the Moment
November is marked by four constellations; the subject matter “What is love?” continues. Venus moves through Libra, answering the question with a clear “Love is an endeavour for harmony.” This is easier when Venus is in Libra than in other signs, but it’s good for all to take up this motto for now: To see the good in people and situations, to smile, say “thank you” and “sorry”, offer help, make compromises, make peace. And all of it even if it proves difficult – it’s just for one month and then you can still decide how to proceed.
This is a useful exercise with Jupiter’s transition into the rather undiplomatic Sagittarius, and since Jupiter is able to gain something positive from anything, Jupiter’s participation in the experiment will be in good humour. Best of all, Jupiter will now spend a full year focusing particularly on positive opportunities and will even tackle those situations cheerfully that drive others to despair. In short, Jupiter is determined not to let life be spoiled. And those who pay particular attention to what brings joy will automatically have more joy in life and infect others with it.
The North Node shifts now for 1 ½ years into Cancer and thereby puts its accent on human warmth instead of business first, on being there for each other instead of profit, on feelings instead of calculations, all of which is surely relaxing and rewarding.
Last but not least, Mercury, on its way to retrograde, points out that many of our convictions are still capable of further development and that we would do well to optimise them by the end of the year.
Aries: Now there are some bills and credit notes on the table thanks to your actions during May or April. Analyse what you’ve done right or wrong and learn for the future. If all goes well, you can reap the rewards in the Spring of 2019 (for those in the Southern atmosphere, Autumn of 2019). With regard to your relationships this may even happen already now, also because Mars provides a relaxed prevailing mood in Pisces. You can use that very well in the last third of November so as to not inconvenience yourself and others too much.
Taurus: After Uranus visited you for half a year, it’s time for a résumé: Where have changes become noticeable? Or where are they urgently needed? Where do I feel a stronger urge for independence? And if you look ahead: Where do I want to go? In comparison, ask yourself what you would have answered a year ago. Until Uranus finally arrives in Taurus in March, it’s all about the inner work: changing your attitudes in such a manner that you can confidently and courageously commence into the next 7 years.
Gemini: From this month on, questions of meaning are becoming more and more urgent. So that they don’t grow into an identity crisis, look at the last 12 or even last 24 years and ask yourself: Do I now have the life that I once longed for? Is my life meaningful? Have I arrived or is something still missing? If so, what is it? You now have a year ahead of you during which you can actively search for answers and find them. The prerequisite is for you to give those questions a certain priority.
Cancer: A month with calmly flowing energy. You can now easily activate your resources by doing things that open you up, relax and broaden your horizon: meditation and all other spiritual rituals, reading or listening to holy scriptures, enjoying music and art, relaxing in warm water, nature, tantra, dancing, yoga and meditative movement. Just let yourself fall into what makes you feel blessed. And don’t let yourself be distracted by the inner sceptic, for whom all this isn’t good enough.
Leo: An inner growth process of 1 ½ years is now coming to an end. In the first three weeks of November, take care of your emotional life. It is all about overcoming drama, anger, or black-and-white thinking, and nurturing what opens and lifts you up. This will become easier and easier throughout the month. Especially the Sun’s entry into Sagittarius gives you a zest for life, momentum and optimism. Share the fullness that you experience with others – it will multiply and deepen.
Virgo: You now have resources at your disposal that give you confidence, courage and strength. Use them to master the learning processes you are going through in your relationships. The topic “What is love?” shows itself to you with the urgent desire to open your heart even more and to be even less judgemental or intolerant. You know that it hurts yourself when your heart is tight or closed. Allow Jupiter’s energy to relax your entire system by expanding your heart so that it has room for everything.
Libra: From the end of November, processes that began in September/October will be concluded. You attain to more acceptance for the inevitable. There are situations in life that cannot be changed as one would wish despite the best intentions or best conditions. One can then hold on to one’s own desires and ideas and suffer – which doesn’t really help anyone. Or one accepts the imperfection of life and looks for other areas to make an impact.
Scorpio: Your efforts are bearing fruit, and many things are now coming to a good end. Stay open and concede when you can’t control situations. Only in this way will you experience that something is moving in a positive direction even without your help. This will make it also easier for you to use your energy powerfully and prudently. You know: I don’t want and can’t force anyone to be happy. Enjoy the successes and don’t stop at minor failures that can still turn to the better.
Sagittarius: Now starts a heyday that strengthens in you what others and you too value most: joie de vivre, optimism and enthusiasm. You love everything that broadens your horizons, and the next 12 months offer many wonderful opportunities for this. But the beginning of this phase is rather slow; some projects, ideas or contacts could soon turn out to be soap bubbles. So first expand mentally, and take your time before you set to work.
Capricorn: Everything develops in the right direction. This is because you continue to act moderate, prudent, and at the same time purposeful and powerful. Actually, you can’t do anything wrong now unless other signs in your chart suggest otherwise. So, stick to your positive Capricorn qualities and avoid extremes: realism instead of perfectionism, endurance instead of doggedness, stability instead of stubbornness. Just stay tuned without pushing yourself. You already give more than enough!
Aquarius: Stick to what’s easy and don’t push anything through, even if you think it’s important. Nevertheless, the first half of the month is generally very good for getting projects off the ground. But then wait and see how they develop. Before Uranus moves direct in January there are still many twists that can happen – both in the circumstances and in your attitude. What you think is promising now may be outdated next year. Even in your relationships there are still innovations to be made.
Pisces: A resourceful November. Everything you do or start in the first half of the month is under a propitious star – both in small and great matters. In relationships, you have to make a few concessions, but everything else flows by itself. In the second half of the month it might get a bit chaotic. Luckily you have a talent to handle chaos! However, it is useful if you try to get mental clarity and information – to get a clear picture and make precise statements.
