I’ve never used to be a big believer of the universe, of horoscopes, of something bigger. However, after looking at the past couple of months, I’m changing my tune. So much so that I ring in each new month with the beloved Susan Miller and her monthly “Oh god, what’s going to happen to me and how is the universe going to screw me over” horoscopes at Astrology Zone. Yes, friends, I’ve been a Susan Miller fan and I’ve got no shame about it. I mean, she’s basically written my life story month by month, which is terrifying and amazing at the same time.
For instance, in my October overview, she says,
Last month we saw the first of two eclipses on October 18. That eclipse had the power to clarify certain conditions in your love life as well as bring information on other fronts. If single, you may have seen a sweetheart come into your life, or else make a departure, as some eclipses “eclipse out” a person in our lives, such as in love, through a breakup. If an eclipse is to touch the mathematical degree of a planet or other element in your chart, it’s apt to be dramatic.
The universe wants you in strong, stable relationships, and to that end an eclipse will do whatever it needs to do to get you moving into a stronger situation. If you cannot make a decision before the eclipse, the eclipse will make it for you. (Often we can’t make a decision because we want to take the person at face value, a lovely quality in you.) All eclipses reveal a great deal of previously unknown information, and afterward, we begin to see the situation in an entirely new way. Often we have an ah-ha moment.
What often makes an eclipse difficult and even shocking is when the deeply unhappy person in the relationship doesn’t communicate his or her feelings, but then one day simply leaves, leaving the other person shocked, heartbroken, and alone. I feel we have to play fair in love and voice our hurts as they come up. That gives the other person in the relationship a chance to work on the problem. We need to enter a relationship in honesty and transparency, and I can always hope for that. If an eclipse suspects otherwise, it will shine its beacon of light into the dark corners of the alliance, and that can be hard, when the eclipse takes charge.
I mean, way to break it down, Susan. Because this totally happened. I love the idea of just letting the universe take its course, of just letting it go and see what pans out. It removes me from the driver seat, which to be clear I was never in the driver seat but often times I want to jump in that seat and hold the steering wheel. And as for that AH-HA moment? Totally had it last Friday. A moment of complete clarity while drinking a fancy cocktail with a charming guy. It hit me, this adventure, this life. Stop trying to figure out your story, don’t worry about how it is going to be written. Just let the universe (or whoever you want to put there) write it for you and play an active role as the main character.
So, in honor of a new month, I figured I’d share my November horoscope with my fellow Sagittarius friends (what up, archers?!) and share some good news: November is kind of going to rock. Be ready.
This will be a very private month when you will come to realize some of the most precious time you spend will be time alone. Peacefully train your mind on what you hope to achieve in your coming birthday year. You are a gregarious soul, but this month it does not seem you’ll mind begging off social obligations. You will think about the new goals you will soon draw up. Your concentration will be high, and you can be quite productive behind closed doors.
A new moon solar eclipse will occur November 3, and it will suddenly bring previously hidden information out in the open. Once you know what it is, you can respond – remember, all is being revealed to protect you. Alternatively and conversely, you may begin to work on a secret project that you will not be able to show others for months. Mercury will be retrograde until November 10 (having begun October 18), so things will begin to move forward faster after Mercury has regulated its speed. By November 27, you will be moving at the speed of light.
Financially, your very favorite day of the month will be November 12, when Jupiter, your ruler, contacts the Sun and a large sum of cash may find its way to your bank account. Also, with Mars toasting your tenth house of career status and rewards with a glass of champagne, you will also enjoy November 19, when Mars and Jupiter work together. You may make a good commission, negotiate a wonderful perks package, or get venture capital for a career aim dear to you. Keep your eye on career matters, for with Mars in a rare transit of your professional reward sector, you can make impressive progress from November 11 to December 7.
You also seem to have an important link now to travel, foreign people and places, the media, academia, or a legal case. One (or more) of these areas will be very fortunate for you for weeks ahead, but especially so on November 27.
The full moon of November 17 will bring a work project to an end within four days of this date. It seems to take quite a bit out of you, so pace yourself so you can protect your health. Jupiter, the great benefic, will be friendly so this project should pay very well, most likely in a one-lump sum.
If you have been concerned about your home or another property situation, you can see progress at long last now that Neptune will turn direct November 13. Watch March for even more progress. Keep in mind that Neptune will want to bring the sea with him to your home – to pay for any eventual water damage, be sure to have insurance.
Good things come to those who wait – your outlook for love on November 30 will be simply sensational, thanks to an interplay of Uranus fellow fire sign Aries and the Sun in Sagittarius. Be sure to kick up dust on that great Saturday evening!
