You are entering one of the most glorious months in recent memory, possibly ever in your life. As of last month, Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, had just entered Scorpio for the first time since late 2005 to late 2006. I call these rare and special years your emerald years, for you can only have eight such years in your lifetime if you live to 96. It’s time to make your list of all you would like to accomplish by this time next year, and while you won’t likely achieve everything on your list, by November of next year, you’ll have an impressive number of victories. There are many types of goodies coming your way, so let’s pause here to examine the full moon that will come up first.
The full moon will arrive on November 3 in Taurus, 12 degrees, putting your focus on a close partner. This might be your marriage partner or a close business partner, expert, or collaborator. You may be drawing up papers to make a business alliance official, or you might be getting engaged; however, if that is a bridge too far right now, you may promise to be exclusive to each other. If you are already married or are in a firmly established business relationship, your partner will play a prominent role in your life this month and likely will bring you good news. Pluto, your ruler, will be beautifully oriented to this full moon, suggesting you will have outstanding support from your partner.
If you are an artist or designer, or work with them to showcase their work, such as being a television producer, agent, or publicist as some examples, you will also enjoy this full moon because Neptune will stimulate your creative thinking quite noticeably. Neptune is in your fifth house of artistic expressions – but there is more. Your fifth sector is also the house of true love, and Neptune will have a direct link to your seventh house of marriage now, so this could be quite a magical time for you.
If you want to sign a contract, do it at the full moon, November 3. Keep in mind that next month Mercury will retrograde from December 3 to 22, so I won’t let you sign then! This also means you must do your holiday shopping this month.
Retailers will be low on inventory; shelves will start to become bare quickly, so start with the children’s toys on your list, and then move quickly to electronics. Electronic items should never be purchased when Mercury is retrograde, for Mercury rules all moving parts in machines, even electronic ones. Mercury is the intellectual thinking planet, so your perception and judgment is faulty at these times, too.
If your birthday falls on November 3 or 4, plus or minus four days, you will benefit in an outstanding way from this full moon. Something big involving another person is coming to a culmination. The same is true if you have Scorpio rising 12 degrees, or the moon in Scorpio at that degree, plus or minus four degrees in all cases. What an exciting month!
Next, on November 9 you may get superb news about your career, for the Sun, ruler of your solar tenth house of fame, will receive shimmering vibrations from Pluto in your house of agreements and communication/media. If you are interviewing for a new job, choose this day. If a reporter wants to interview you, make a date for this day, or if you are interested in a new business venture, you can have very productive meetings on November 9.
All year, Saturn has been in ideal angle to Uranus, so these two heavy hitters of the solar system have been working in collaboration to help you succeed. This is unusual – this almost never happens between these two planets, for Saturn takes 29 years to circle the Sun and Uranus 84 years. It’s hard to get these two in precisely the right spot in the sky, but that’s happening in 2017 and 2018.
On November 11, Saturn and Uranus will reach mathematical perfection, but you don’t technically need them to make an exact hit, because as long as they are within an 8-degree orb of aspect, you can benefit. Uranus, now moving through your sixth house of day-to-day work projects, is the planet of innovation, and Saturn is now in Sagittarius in your house of earned income, working with Uranus, helping you build a sturdy foundation to your ideas. This should excite you!
I know you have been underpaid for a long time. You had to prove yourself, and you are nearly done with that cosmic test. Saturn was also teaching you to negotiate for yourself more effectively, and you have to admit, you are better than ever at this talent. Sometimes necessity truly is the mother of invention.
Saturn has been in your second house of salary for three years, but that’s about to change next month, in December, when Saturn moves on to Capricorn. You have a bright future, dear Scorpio. The seeds that you plant this month and throughout 2018 will create your future abundance, and that bounty is set to grow large by 2019.
On November 13 you have a firecracker five-star day that I want you to promise to use! Venus and Jupiter will align in Scorpio for the first time in 12 years.
What a day! Use this day for love and romance or luxury, such as to go to a spa or to buy something you’ve wanted that you consider a bit of a splurge. This is a Monday, so if you can’t really go out on a Monday night, it will be good to know that you can use this dazzling vibration as early as Saturday and Sunday,
You may want to ask for more money on this Monday, November 13, for Jupiter rules your solar second house of earned income. Venus rules your partner – and also celebrations – so a romantic dinner over the weekend or Monday night would be the perfect timing. If November 13 is your birthday, plus or minus two days, your entire year will be filled with golden light. Venus conjunct Jupiter is a very important aspect.
Now we come to the centerpiece of the month, November 18, the grand new moon in Scorpio 26 degrees, which will unlock all the goodness that Jupiter has promised you for your coming birthday year. In coming months you will have extraordinary help from powerful people, so you need to seek them out and speak up. Agree to see anyone who will see you. All the bountiful money you will see in 2019 will be predicated on the proposals and new projects you seed now and in 2018.
Jupiter, and this new moon, will help you find lasting love. If you are single and hoping to find the right person for you, you must circulate. Buy new wardrobe items to build your confidence when you are out meeting and greeting new people.
Venus will be in Scorpio from November 7 to December 1, which is fortunate, for, as you know, Mercury will be messing up best made plans (and everyone’s judgment) in December. You have such a fabulous month to attract others to you. If you are attached, you can have more fun together – you will get more attention from your partner.
Also at this new moon, you may hear exciting news about your career, and separately, you are likely to travel to a very distant, foreign country this year, for Jupiter will see to that, too. This new moon of November 18 will get the ball rolling. Your health will improve too, so if your health has been a concern (whether due to a chronic condition or something new), continue to gather medical opinions. The past is past, but now you are looking at an entirely new situation and reason for hope. You have the great healer, Jupiter, in your corner, and that makes all the difference.
If your birthday falls on November 18, plus or minus four days, you are luckier than a leprechaun, for Jupiter will bring good fortune in all phases of your life for an entire year. The same is true if you have Scorpio rising or the natal moon at 26 degrees Scorpio, plus or minus four degrees. If you have a natal planet in Scorpio, Pisces, or Cancer, Virgo, Taurus, or Capricorn, again, you are in for a lovely month, with plenty of opportunity.
A number of delicious possibilities will be dangled in front of you in November, and you may have to be patient. Mars, one of your rulers, is in a secretive, confidential part of your chart, so for now,
keep new developments and your plans mum until all is solidified.
Mars will move into Scorpio from December 9 to January 26, but because Mercury will retrograde from December 3 to 22, you will do best to sit tight and keep news under lock and key until early January, after the winter holidays. It is never wise to finalize offers or discuss secrets when Mercury is out of phase. You seem content to be patient, for as a Scorpio, you are the most discrete sign of the zodiac. You are also the most strategic sign. Friends may wonder why you seem joyously on the verge of something big, but like a real life Mona Lisa, you’ll refuse to tell. They’ll have to wait.
