Cosmic Diaries: November Monthly Horoscopes 2016
— by Priya Kale
ARIES – With the Sun moving through Scorpio, life is changing deeply on all levels — your finances and business partnerships, relationship/s with significant others, friends, and a professional situation. With Mercury, Venus, and your ruler Mars, changing signs early in the month, hopefully you’re moving along with life, and embracing the new opportunities, connections, friendships, and horizons opening up for you. Expect to have a full social calendar; make the effort and you could connect with people, who can help you further your ambitions, and gain perspective on a situation. Mid-month the Full Moon brings important personal and financial commitments to a head asking you to be wise and stay true to your values. No one can define your worth other than you, and you’re worth a lot more than you realize. Know the value of what you have to offer — personally and professionally. Your integrity and loyalty counts for a lot. Know your bottom line and what you need to feel valued, respected and secure in your commitments. Be detached to a person, or outcome; then you can negotiate financial agreements successfully as well as deepen intimacy in a relationship/s with significant other/s who offer you the emotional and tangible security you need. You have more to gain than anything you fear losing, and what falls away is clearing space for relationships, opportunities and financial abundance that truly align with your core values. You’re ahead of the curve, still you need and can have the support of significant others as you work towards materializing a long term goal. This is a process of you reclaiming your place and power in the world; and in your relationships, with other powerful equals — “equals” being a key word. No one is above or beneath you and no one can have power over you unless you give that away. Be inspired, and you can inspire others with your vision.
TAURUS – You’re at the start of a new month and whole new cycle in your relationships, and deepest commitments showing you who you can truly count on. You’ve been through a lot over the past few years, and it’s natural for you to have been guarded, but you can put the past behind you now if you choose. It might mean drawing boundaries in certain cases, or lowering your guard, in others. What matters is that you stay in, and aware of, your power — which means only you know what’s best for you — and let go of expectations of others; then you can avoid disappointments. A Full Moon in your sign mid-month is reflecting an important truth to about yourself, and your feelings regarding a relationship/s, and a professional situation that has made you question your place in this world. Surrender trying to control anyone, anything, even yourself, or your emotions. As much as situations are testing your patience — stay grounded in what is real, and you can allow other peoples dramas roll off your back, as you strengthen connections that matter. Take care of your needs, rather than expect that from others; and pay attention to who steps up. Personally and professionally, there might be more than one enticing opportunity on offer. You can afford to be selective, but stay humble. Be honest with yourself about what you need, know your bottom line and keep sight of your long-term goals. Then you won’t be in danger of giving away your power or signing your life over to others whose agenda doesn’t necessarily align with yours. Still there are those whom you can now partner with, who can give you a head-start on your goals and what you’re trying to accomplish. What you want, need, and can have, are relationships that are truly mutually supportive, have your back, and inspire you to be your best. What you most need is perspective, then you can make wise choices that take you further along your chosen path, pay off tangibly in the long (and not so long) run, allow you to deepen connections that you value you for you, and will truly go the distance for, and with you.
GEMINI — Life is changing and there are a series of developments unfolding, early in the month which could be a domino effect asking you to keep your wits about you and perspective on an evolving work, life, and or health situation. You have dreams, and you also have the power to make these dreams a reality; and live a life that reflects a deeper soul truth. It will require hard work on your part, but you can heal something on a deep level. A situation reaches a peak mid-month, asking you to take time to go inward, rest and recharge if you’re feeling stretched or if you’re spreading yourself too thin. Prioritize your life, starting with your health — emotionally, mentally and physically — and consciously let go of what is a drain on your energy. Relationships too are evolving, especially those that involve sex and/or money. Be very conscious of your values, so you can align and deepen commitments that share your values. Also be conscious of attachments to sex and or money, that could prevent you from seeing a situation clearly — for better or for worse. A mystery is revealing itself and there’s more hidden potential in a situation than on the surface. Avoid jumping to conclusions, remain open-minded and you can sift through the dirt to discover something truly golden. Hopefully you’re gaining perspective and realizing you have more options than you could have imagined. You’re being freed, and you have more support than any lack you’d feared. As the Sun enters Sagittarius at the end of the month, you can start a new chapter if you’re willing to draw a line with the past. This might mean cutting losses in some cases and lowering your guard in others. Have faith this is a process that’s ultimately this is opening the door to relationships that are truly your equals and offer you the tangible, material support, emotional support and intimacy you seek.
CANCER – A Full Moon in the part of your chart that represents your friends, social circle and “fulfilment of wishes’ suggests you can have what you wish for, so be careful what you wish for. I say this not to scare you, but often we choose second best because we don’t dare acknowledge our true desires. As the Sun moves through Scorpio, this is your chance to dive deep within yourself, and acknowledge what you really want in your heart of hearts. You are learning who your friends are, be grateful for this. A friendship or close personal relationship, or perhaps a social situation coming to light, reflecting a truth to you about yourself and your deeper desires — emotional, sexual, creative and personal. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you need, or express how you feel. You’ve been carrying a secret flame in your heart for a while. You can’t make someone/others love you; and any friendship or love you can buy with money, isn’t really worth it. All you can do is be yourself and learn to love yourself — even the parts you might consider less than desirable. Only with self-acceptance can you truly be free to be yourself and attract the friendships/relationships that are right for you; love you for you, are loyal, recognize the true value of what you offer beyond the physical, and your inner beauty. Avoid being attached to your desires taking a particular form. There’s real love in your world, tangible financial support, emotional support, creative partnerships and people you can form successful partnerships with — allowing you to materialize a vision. You just have to be willing to come out of your shell, and open your arms to embrace it. You may or may not get what you want, but you can have what you need. And if you let go of expectations, this could be better than what you could have imagined for yourself.
LEO – With the Sun moving through Scorpio, you’re deeply invested in matters surrounding your home, family, sense of security and belonging this month. This is likely also asking you to confront the past, especially your relationship with your father and recognise what matters to you at the end of it all. Mid-month a professional situation comes to light, bringing you a very real opportunity to showcase your natural talents and let your inner light shine. Still it’s important that you are humble, even in the face of those who oppose and challenge your authority. Really thats what this is about — you’re reclaiming your power and authority in your life, to make choices that truly bring you a sense of belonging and security — beyond anything money can buy — allowing you the build the kind of success that is real, lasting, and is built brick by brick with commitment, dedication, that reflects your deepest values. So what does security mean to you? The present is not the past, and you have the power to (re)build your life so it supports your highest ambitions, deepest values and provides for the needs of those you care about most deeply and generations to come. There may be demands being made on your time energy, but don’t be afraid to draw boundaries where necessary and prioritise. By the end of the month, you’ll be ready to take a risk and expand your vision. You may wonder if you’re up for the challenge life is presenting you, but this is your opportunity to rise to the occasion. You needn’t hunger for the spotlight, but don’t shy away from it either. Just do what needs to be done. But remember the saying charity begins at home. In your life at least, you know what’s best. Water the roots of your life; it can only flourish, bear fruit, and give back to a world that seeks shelter from the storm.
VIRGO – With the Sun moving through Scorpio this month: communication is highlighted, as are your perceptions, and relationships with your siblings. You might even be taking short trips or traveling this month. You have a lot on your mind, and likely dealing with a lot of unknown factors. But recognising this is the first step — the unknown, by its nature implies something that is yet to be discovered. The answer you’ve been seeking is likely closer to home than you realise. But you need to slow down long enough so you don’t miss it. Especially as the Full Moon aligns mid-month, this is a chance for you to get out of your head and gather perspective. You’re learning information, or having conversations that could help you get to the bottom of a mystery. Keep an open mind, and consciously let go of expectations; especially negative and the more pessimistic ones. Confront the past honestly, especially your relationship with your father and authority figures. You are (re)building your life from the ground up; keep long term goals in mind as you make choices. You’re at the gateway between the past and the future and the present is where you can mine gold. Dig deep for your integrity and highest ideals, as you let go of perceptions that prevent you from seeing the very real opportunities and creative potential in a situation. In all relationships, be guided by the love you feel, rather than ideas of what something should look like, especially fantasies of a relationship; then you can heartfelt conversations that truly bring you a sense of security. Stay grounded, humble, move one step at a time — and by the end of the month you will have reclaimed something within yourself, your innocence and a true recognition of what’s most precious about you — the source of all your wealth, happiness and well-being — your heart of gold. With just a little bit of perspective you could unearth treasures and stabilise a situation that’s weighed heavily on your mind. As Jonathan Cainer used to say “Perspective is everything.”
LIBRA – You’re learning and being reminded yet again: the only constant in life is change. And the best you can do at any given time, is to center yourself and keep your balance, in the midst of the changes swirling around you. A financial, deeply personal situation, commitment or sexual partnership is evolving deeply. You have more control over what unfolds than you might think, but still you cannot control anyone else, so avoid getting into power struggles or trying to manipulate a situation, which could ultimately backfire. Your power lies in your ability to let go, be patient as things change and to be detached from a particular outcome. It comes down to your values — what are your values surrounding money and commitments? What were your parents values? Acknowledge your desires: creatively, sexually, personally, financially, what you really need to feel safe in your commitments; and to express your sexuality and express yourself sexually. No one can define your worth other than you and how you value yourself is what will ultimately determine the relationships and resources you attract to you. You already have what you need — and plenty to share, so you can afford to be generous. But if you give, give freely and without expectations. Commitment always comes from the inside out and what you offer and need in your relationships is undying loyalty — something that is priceless and worth its weight in gold, in todays material world. Be clear on your values and learn to value yourself. Then you can invest your time, money, love, energy and resources wisely and consciously align with others who share your core values, and value you at the core — not just for what you have to “give” or they can get from you. Love, art and life, come with their share of risks and rewards; ultimately what matters is you played the game fairly, and put your heart into it. You’re in a safer position than you realise to take a chance on your heart and win big. Nothing last forever — other than love. “And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.”
SCORPIO – The Taurus Full Moon in your opposite sign is bringing all your one-to-one relationships, especially one significant relationship to light. Ultimately though our relationships, at best, are a mirror. With the Sun moving through your sign this month, this is about you. You’re being a reflected a deep truth about yourself and what you most need from your relationships to feel secure in them. A situation might be triggering deep insecurities, which has its roots deep in the past, perhaps as far back as childhood. But you are not a child anymore. You have changed, will continue to change and are changing as we speak — as are your desires. What you need most are relationships that are loyal, and stand by you, as continue your journey of evolution. There is no right or wrong in a situation, but comes down to values and (conscious and subconscious) ideas about relationships or ”success.” Now more than ever your perceptions are creating your reality, so avoid arguing for your limitations, and projecting your worst fears and expectations based on the past, or past experiences. You cannot change the past, but you can prevent it from standing in the way of more fulfilling future, if you acknowledge it and your role in it. It’s all about the stories we tell ourselves; memories can be persistent. Let go of perceptions and you can discover a sweeter truth staring you in the face. What’s unfolding now is offering you an opportunity to dig deep and ask yourself what you want — not from a specific person, but from your relationships in general. You need not cling to anyone. Don’t be afraid to keep it real. Have the talk. Listen to what someone is saying, rather than assume you know what they are thinking. Ask for what you need, then pay attention to who shows up and who is listening. Reality is plain to see and the writing is on the wall. The more you can release the past, you can re-write history in a way that truly changes your future, and fills you with real hope and security in the present.
SAGITTARIUS – As the Sun moves through Scorpio, your 12th House this month, you’re being taken on a journey through your personal underworld. It might feel like navigating uncharted territory in the dark. But in spite of all the unknowns, take the time to go inward; rest, recharge and resurrect, before you step back out into the world once the Sun enters your sign. People often marvel at the Scorpio’s prowess and abilities to resurrect. Your sign comes after Scorpio, and you embody the wisdom of experience of lessons that Scorpio is still learning. Your secret powers lie, well, in secret. No one may know the depth of your inner turmoil, still now is a good time to enter this process consciously. Examine darker subconscious thoughts that prevent you from recognising your genius, as well as secret desires — sexual, personal, creative, financial and dreams you don’t usually dare acknowledge even to yourself, or darker desires to want to control a situation. Mid-month the Taurus Full Moon is shining a light on a work or health matter; or something that affects your quality of life. You may not have all the answers yet, but keep asking the questions. You’re learning what you need to do to heal, stabilise a situation — be it your health, a financial situation, relationship, work matter or your heart — so it aligns with your should deepest yearnings. Prioritise and invest your time, money energy in the relationships, activities that matter the most and let go of the rest. Also avoid comparing yourself to others’, your friends or society. Even if you can’t see it, there are deep changes unfolding behind the scenes asking you to be patient as more comes to light. You’re already living the life of your dreams, and if life, or something seems like a nightmare now — this your chance to recognise and awaken to your inner powers to create real lasting change. Stay true to your integrity, know your bottom line, dig deep for your values, and avoid arguing for your limitations, then you needn’t fear being strong-armed. What you have to offer is worth beyond its weight in gold. You may not be able to change the world, but you can definitely change your corner of it. In the process you just might set in motion a greater chain of events that does indeed impact the world in a way that it needs it the most. Sagittarius is the sign of the “Creator” — you heal the lives you touch daily, simply by your presence, even as you forge your soul in the dark. Your time is coming to shine. Be humble.
CAPRICORN — With the Sun moving through your house of friendships, social networks, and fulfilment of wishes — your friendships or a close relationship is coming into focus. Who would be there for you if the sky fell on your head, or the bottom fell out? Life is showing you now. And you may not like what you are seeing, but still be grateful for this and all that you are learning. You’re learning who your real friends are, and whom you can truly trust. But to have a friend you have to be a friend. Avoid compromising them or as you’ve learned, you will pay the price. You’re learning, there’s a lot more for you to learn but as long as you keep that in mind, you can avoid getting ahead of yourself. Mid-month the Full Moon is revealing a deep truth to you about yourself, your heart, its desires, how you truly feel. You’re learning what you need to feel loved, creative, free to express yourself and your sexuality. Hopefully you’re also realising this can only come from the inside out, as you give yourself permission to love and be wholly yourself. Be detached from what’s unfolding, and let go of clinging or giving away your power to anyone or anything. Those who love you, will love you anyway. And the relationships that fall away are learning the way for you to naturally attract and deepen the friendships and connections you share values and a heart connection with, who would go to hell and back with you, and who value you for you — rather than what you look like, how much money you have in the bank, or to fulfil their own insecurities. You’ve been on a profound evolutionary journey with Pluto in your sign, which might at times have felt like being stripped bare. But hopefully you’ve also seen your resilience and ability to resurrect. You have changed, as have your aspirations and its important you acknowledge these, so you can consciously create and materialise a new vision (or love) that’s birthing in your heart. What’s unfolding now is in essence, an inner blossoming of your being, freeing you to be your most loving and creative self, allowing you to attract what you most desire to you — like bees to honey.
AQUARIUS — Mars enters your sign early in the month — you’re going places, professionally as well as personally and it’s important that you remain humble and grounded the midst of all that is unfolding and is uncertain. Expect to feel rather passionate and charged up, but pace yourself so you don’t burn yourself out. With the Sun moving through your house of career and public image, highlighting a professional situation. If you’re angry about something its important you deal with it consciously, rather than act in ways that could be ultimately self-destructive or defeat your own purpose. Take the time now to clarify your goals, acknowledge how they (and you) have changed. Mid-month the Taurus Full Moon is bringing a domestic situation or family to light, in the light of a professional opportunity arising. For some this might mean a physical move or relocation. In essence, what surfaces is highlighting your need for security, in an unknown world; where it feels like the ground is shifting beneath your feet. What do you need to feel safe — emotionally, materially and financially? If you have a roof over your head you are doing better than most. What is your relationship with your family like? What were your fathers values and ambitions? You are not your parents’ or your father; and you are surpassing their limits, and ambitions for you. Have more faith in yourself and reach for gold now. If at all you feel powerless, far from it — this is your challenge to rise to. You are not a child; you have the power, authority, abilities, skills and foresight needed from a leader and people look up to you. Stay aligned with your deepest values, aware of your motivations and be guided by your most altruistic ambitions. Trust your deepest gut instincts and you can make wise choices this month that benefit all you care about, securing foundations even as you explore the new avenues and world opening up to you.
PISCES – What are you worth? Who or what defines your worth? And what do you most value? A deeply personal, sexual and or financial situation is evolving and changing deeply; and there are unpredictable developments unfolding mid-month asking you to keep your balance. You might feel out of control and exposed in all this, but those who have nothing to hide, hide nothing. A professional situation too is evolving — success can be yours, but at what or whose cost? Be conscious now not to cut your nose to spite your face; or manipulate a situation or truth to get ahead which will only back-fire. You need not engage in power-struggles; the more you let go and allow things to play out, the balance of power will shift and even out naturally and easily. Also acknowledge your attachments — to money, sex, power, or needing to be in control. What were your parents values surrounding sex, money and commitments? How are yours different? Become aware of your patterns, then you need not continue to repeat them. You have a lot to gain, but what’s important now is that you are true to yourself, integrity and your values — then you can align with others who share your values and form mutually beneficial partnerships, as well deepen intimacy in a relationship. And regardless of what you think, you have more to gain than any thing you fear losing. Be fair, kind, wise, remain detached, and you can rise from a situation that’s taken you to the abyss and still come out on top, smelling like roses.
