A spicy Mars/Venus conjunction in Virgo revs things up at the beginning of November—this “mojo” is great for scoring a lucrative new job or even for introducing yourself to your new co-worker, as workplace romances can be a distinct possibility now. In fact, new unions of all types are in the air; here are some quick behavioral “tells” that could indicate possible interest:
• Men are apt to be more refined, courteous and polite (read: gentlemanly) when pursuing the object of their desires this month.
• The ladies may flip between primping to make themselves as attractive as possible (look for the red lipstick!) and/or initiating a more bold and direct approach.
A new moon in probing Scorpio on November 11 may denote a strong “need to know” vibe with its close proximity to Mercury; digging for information and doing general reconnaissance may be par for the course around this time. Careful how deep you dig though, and be sure to avoid taking liberties concerning privacy or any confidences placed in you. What would happen if you were to unearth something shocking or that puts you in an awkward spot? The Uranian influence upon this lunation can be a boundary-buster, so explore with detachment any compulsion to “get to the bottom” of a matter to be sure this isn’t rooted in a place of insecurity. This is definitely a time to know when to mind your own business and watch who or what you ask or reveal.
There can be an innovative yet disruptive influence upon relationships during November’s third and fourth weeks as Venus in Libra runs into Pluto and Uranus. This is not a time for staleness in unions; rather it is a time to find that perfect marriage between intimacy and independence. Relationships that have perhaps become a bit too enmeshed benefit from some space and breathing room so that individuality can be cultivated, while pairings that highlight autonomy and that have more distance between partners benefit from going deeper. The circumstances that can prompt these kinds of adjustments may feel rather pressure-laden at times, but know that it’s all about evolving how you love.
It is always important to be honest with yourself, and the Gemini Full Moon on November 25 highlights just how vital this is. Shun denial and appreciate when it really is in your best interest to know the truth—even if it is a disappointing one—as hard facts might otherwise be tempting to turn a blind eye to. On the other hand, don’t take everything you are told as gospel either; know fact checking may be required to verify certain information that may come to light around the time of this lunation. Why extrapolate based on possibly inconclusive or even erroneous data? Soul search, listen to your intuition, and/or try praying for verification if or when things aren’t quite clear-cut.
