Let the good vibes roll this November, when multiple planetary alignments generate charity and human kindness in the City of Angels. The most powerful zodiac event this month is the Venus/Jupiter pairing in Virgo (visible at 10 p.m. on the 12th). This arrangement rewards goodwill, so to reap full karmic benefits grab lunch at Homegirl Café, donate warm clothes, or invite a lonely friend to Thanksgiving Dinner. On the 12th, Mercury joins Antares, the red heart of Scorpio, promoting deep insights and a pretty show too- look up! And don’t miss Leo’s meteor shower (November 17th after midnight) when the kitty roars stars across the zodiac, bestowing friendly abundance on all signs. Feel the love, Los Angeles.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Ram, your karma game is strong this November with two Moon/Uranus pairings, on the 2nd and again on the 30th. Focus that enterprising nature of yours on humanitarian concerns. November continues to be a transformational month for you, with a lot of planetary activity in your house of positive change. When Mercury joins Saturn on the 28th, expect hard work with a dose of melancholy. Indulge your bluesy mood with some Nina Simone. Health and the workplace benefit from a Jupiter/Venus pairing on the 12th when happiness and bounty abound, so you’ve got that going for you.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Who is mama’s good bull? You are, Taurus! As a reward for your hard work, the planets give you a break this month from all the hassle that jacked up October. Mercury joins Antares, the red heart of the scorpion (this is both visible and super pretty- see it before dawn on the 12th) giving profound insights into your love life, especially if you are married. On the same day, a powerful Venus/Jupiter alignment brings you happiness and luck in the workplace. To maximize the benefits, respond with generosity towards others. A meteor shower on the 17th radiates self-expression in your creativity house– if you make art, make BIG art.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
We’re romancing the twins this month in the L.A. skies. On the 12th, a Venus/Jupiter tryst lands right in your love sector. This happy abundance is heightened by selflessness; to reap full planetary benefits, do something kind for others. You’ll feel extra psychic on the 2nd and the 30th, when Uranus/Moon alignments build energy in mystical Pisces. And when Neptune goes stationary in your career house (November 22nd) dream of better work. Are you free to expand? Twins need twice as much room as the rest of us, and your good heart is ready for growth.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Oh Crab, you hippy moon-child, you. Your intuitive nature is well suited for a mystical November. Seek the strange and unusual (and feel sentimental) on the 2nd and the 30th when your ruling Moon pairs with Uranus in psychic Pisces. On the 14th, the Moon joins headstrong Mars in your home and family sector, bringing strong memories. Virgo’s influence here suggests a need for clean eating. If it seems like you’re detoxing every other month, so are the planets. Clean guts equal clean minds, with the exception of Turkey Day when you really must indulge. When Cancer hosts the last ¼ Moon on the 10th, it’s time to wrap up current projects, not start new ones.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, I’m just going to say it – you’re winning 2017. Luckily for the rest of us, you’re sharing the good vibes like a sweet kitty. A spectacular meteor shower radiates from the lion’s heart on the 17th, spreading self-expression and generosity across the night sky (best view after midnight). Your creativity gets a boost on the 23rd, when Mercury directs your fiery mind into the far reaches of imagination (It’s that planet’s greatest distance this year from our little blue rock.) On the 12th, the Venus/Jupiter conjunction fires up your house of self – so get ready for happy abundance. You’re welcome.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Get out of your head and into your heart this November, Virgin. Your constellation hosts Venus every fall, and this year lucky Jupiter joins the party. Avoid over-analyzing situations. You’ll be tempted to criticize a lover on the 12th. Don’t; it will interrupt your focus on beauty, which is kind of your deal. (Speaking of beauty, the meteor shower on the 17th should be gorgeous; check it out!) Trust others at work: a perfectionist who can’t delegate risks burnout. On the 16th, lucky Jupiter visits you again, this time paired with the Moon – a generous aspect. Channel your big love for others – and earn planetary karma points. This is your month.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Your scales will be busy this month, Libra, busy counting cold hard cash. Mercury joins Antares, the Scorpion’s red heart, on the 12th – yes, this is visible in L.A. skies – bringing a planetary windfall to your income house. Remain objective, but don’t forget to give. This is a day for generosity, and your balanced mind will know what to do. The abundant pairing between Venus and Jupiter lands in your karma sector (also on the 12th). Your kindness towards others will be returned tenfold on this date. Begin and end November with insights into any joint income you have. On the 18th, a new Moon in Libra supports charming and elegant beginnings – bad vibes bum you out, so stay out of workplace frays. Be the chill you want to see in the world.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
What a pretty show you give the zodiac this month, Scorpio, when your brilliant red heart, the star Antares, aligns with Mercury (visible just before dawn on the 12th). Expect profound insights, and please be generous. As a water sign, your natural intuition will be heightened on the 2nd and again on the 30th with a Moon/Uranus pairing in Pisces. Both days are great for establishing partnerships, romantic or otherwise. The Leonid meteor shower peaks on the 17th right in your friendship sector. Why not enjoy the spectacle with good buddies? Speaking of friends, other feel-good days include the 14th (Mars/Moon alignment). Let the good vibes roll, scorpion, and put that stinger away.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Lucky Archer, your ruling Jupiter brings bounty this month, and karmic opportunities await. On the 12th, Jupiter aligns with romantic Venus in Virgo – this makes for the best date night of the year. Feeling blue as the weather cools? It could be the Mercury/Saturn/Moon conjunction (November 20th) on the cusp of your sign, pointing to inner work. This is the hard stuff; but it leads to greater happiness. On the 28th your strong mind gets a boost from that taskmaster Saturn in your karma quadrant. Use your arrows to defend the little guy – he needs a friend this year.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
The goat begins the month pondering love (all kinds, big and small) on the 3rd, with an assist from a beautiful full moon. Want to supercharge your month? Capricorns that tap into November’s karmic opportunities find that cool shit happens when you maximize love. Your ruling Saturn is social this month, participating in a Saturn/Mercury/Moon threesome on the 20th, and again joining Mercury on the 28th –both arrangements happen in your friendship house. Play the gracious host (no head butts, please). The more you treat others as guests this month, inside and outside of your home, the more the stars will favor you. A new moon on the 18th provides business opportunities. Take a risk.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
Love and feelings matter where money is concerned this November, Water Bearer. Your ruling planet, Uranus, aligns with the Moon twice in mystical Pisces (once on the 2nd and again on the 30th) boosting your personal income – financial intuitions should not be ignored this month. And a lucky Venus-Jupiter alignment on the 12th hits you square in your joint income house. Don’t miss the meteor shower that peaks on the 17th – it radiates across your partnership sector, and smiles on finances. When Neptune, the imagination planet, leaves retrograde on the 22nd, it hangs tough in Aquarius before going direct, and maximizes enlightened humanitarianism. It’s good vibes and good money for Aquarians this month. Spend mindfully.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Holy Moly, Fish – you get a double dose of psychic powers this month (first on the 2nd and again on the 30th) when Uranus aligns with the Moon in your house of self. Your natural intuition will be supercharged, and don’t be alarmed by the crazy emotions – they will pass like weather. Radiate generosity on the 17th, when the Leonid meteor shower rewards kind hearts. When your ruling Neptune ends its long retrograde on the 22nd (hooray!) it activates dream work in your karmic zone. Balance those chakras, and get your freak on, fish. Your city needs its mystics.
Ophiuchus (November 29 – December 17)
November is a big month for the Snake Bearer, especially the second half of the month when planetary activity in Ophiuchus brings deep yoga to the zodiac. A Mercury/Saturn/Moon alignment (November 20th) on your cusp initiates a path to deeper humanity. Take the path! You may be asking ‘Where is my mind?’ on the 23rd, when Mercury goes the distance in your constellation. (Look for Mercury low in the western sky after sunset.) This transitional position represents a change from the old you to new you, and your generally reliable intellect may experience growing pains. Embrace the weirdness! You are meant to grow.
