A Note from Susan Miller
November is a very big month, and I wanted you to have all the information you need to take full advantage of the changing aspects. I went back to October to put your life in context and to show you specifically how different—and better—November would be for you.
November starts off tense (depending on your sign and exact birthday), but it gets special by the gorgeous new moon of November 14. Also, Mercury and his big brother Mars will both go direct after endless weeks of being in retrograde, so you will see the pace of life pick up in a way that you will find gratifying. There will be opportunities to take advantage of at long last, and you will have two weeks to get ready. On top of all of this, the eclipses are back—these are gentle and sweet and will push you forward into a new realm. The first one is due November 30 in Gemini, and the second one, a dazzler, is due next month, December 14, in Sagittarius as a new moon solar eclipse.
Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
As you enter November, you are still within the full moon period of October 31, and that influence will be strong until November 4. The full moon fell in Taurus, lighting your twelfth house of secrets, and because this could turn out to be the most emotional full moon of the year, you may be thinking about news that surfaced on October 31 or information that will surface within the first days of November. This was a strong supermoon, which means it orbited closer to earth than normal, and you could see it large, as big as a pizza pie in the sky.
If someone tried to withhold a secret from you, you would be given that information at this full moon, within the first four days of November. With Uranus in the picture, the planet of unanticipated events that seem to come out of left field, you may feel rattled by what comes up. You won’t be alone—just about everyone will feel this full moon the same way, and you will also see its effects played out on the world stage, so check the news on television, too. This full moon was tightly conjunct Uranus and also directly opposed to the Sun—a jarring aspect.
If it is not a secret that you hear, this could have something to do with the health of a close relative or friend that concerns you or your own. The twelfth house is the house of hospitals and places of confinement, such as physical therapy centers, nursing homes, rehab centers, psychiatric care institutions, and other places of healing, and you are likely to have more than normal interaction with medical personnel. This is not the time to take chances, not with the coronavirus still virulent and a monster full moon in your twelfth house.
I expect November to be a tough month for virus outbreaks, for Jupiter (expansion) and Pluto (virus) will have another rare meeting this year, their last, on November 12. As Jupiter and Pluto started to become closer to this conjunction in October, things heated up—outbreaks are all over the world now. Astrology is not destiny, though. You can avoid problems by being careful, so stay home more, wash your hands frequently, and wear your mask. Doctors wear masks to protect you when operating on you, and you’d never want them to take off their mask during surgery. The same applies to our neighbors and strangers on the street—we all have to wear masks out of respect. Make no mistake, November is a bad month for the virus, for Jupiter and Pluto were retrograde for months but recently went direct, and now they are strong, rested, and robust.
To review this year, Jupiter and Pluto met on April 4, June 29-30, and will meet again on November 12, all tough times for spikes in the coronavirus curve. Jupiter and Pluto will begin to part by next month, so we may hear good news about a turning point and possible treatment for the virus in the last week of December, or certainly by January 12, 2021. This doesn’t mean we will instantly have a vaccine by then—it will take time for the drug companies to ramp up production and distribute the medicine, but psychologically, it will be welcome news that we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. After November 12, Jupiter and Pluto will not meet again in conjunction until 2033.
The new moon on November 14 in Scorpio, 23 degrees, will also accent your health, but this time it will suggest proactive ways for you to follow a path to wellness. This is an ideal time to have the screenings, blood tests, and procedures you know you need. It’s also the time to see your dentist or eye doctor, or have a mammogram or prostate exam. The time you spend in a doctor’s office is small, but it can have a huge influence on your life. You might want to have a look at your everyday diet, and make small changes, and also start walking more or doing other exercise. If you start shortly after a new moon appears, you will have the best shot of the entire year to see impressive progress.
This new moon of November 14 could also bring a new assignment or project to your desk, and you will have the potential to create a visionary, highly creative result from it. I say that because you have Neptune—the powerful, artistic, imaginative planet—in perfect angle to the new moon in your work-a-day sector (sixth house). You also would be compensated well, for you will have stable Saturn, good-fortune Jupiter, and powerhouse financial planet Pluto in your commissions/fees/royalties/income sector, almost ensuring you can negotiate a really good deal after the new moon.
The new moon November 14 will occur in your work sector and could easily bring a new assignment that will stimulate your imagination, as well as bring positive publicity to you after you finish it. You will likely make a generous sum, too.
You are fortunate that your ruling planet Mercury will go direct on November 3, having been retrograde in the very same area of your chart since October 13. You can soon start to buy electronics and sign contracts—I had warned against doing so up until now—and you will feel the pace of life pick up in a swift, gratifying way. Because clever little Mercury is wildest when he is at the beginning and endpoints of his retrograde, avoid jumping into activities too quickly, as soon as November 3 arrives. I’d like you to wait at least a week.
Besides, Mercury’s big brother Mars has also been retrograde, taunting you with delays, indecisive VIPs, postponements, and more since September 9. Mars will turn direct on November 13. It’s never wise to launch anything new—no new business ventures or new relationships, whether romantic or business in nature—while Mars is retrograde. Things never work out as you assumed, and they soon lose steam and never fulfill their potential. Mars retrogrades every two years, so you will have an open road to begin projects after November 13.
You might encounter one problem after the new moon of November 14 because offstage, on the sidelines, Uranus, planet of surprise, will be aiming his cannons at your ruler, Mercury. This could cause a sudden upset with an assignment. Go over what you need to do for a client to be sure you know precisely what will be expected of you. Don’t take for granted that you will get the job—it appears you have some competition for it, so if you are up for one, pull out all the stops to make sure you are the clear choice. If you are already working on an assignment, don’t let down your guard. Do the very best you can.
In a month that has so many moving parts, you’ll have a big moment at month’s end, a total eclipse of the moon in Gemini, 9 degrees. This is the second eclipse in the new Gemini-Sagittarius series that recently started on June 5 with the eclipse in Sagittarius, and the theme then may be linked to what is going on now. Do you remember a theme that came up last June that might continue now? Also, the last time you had an eclipse close to 9 degrees Gemini was on November 28, 2012, at 6 degrees Gemini. If you can recall a theme that emerged then, it may resemble what will happen this month on November 30, plus or minus five days.
No date ever replicates any other date because the planets are continually on the move, and the sign and degrees of each matter. But by looking back, you can get an idea of the topic that might come up. Eclipses are the most dramatic tool the universe uses to affect change, and in this case, the change may be in your perspective, for eclipses always bring enlightenment and truth. You may change your name or your appearance as a result of changes going on within you, and in your life, for friends and family to see.
Next month you will have a new moon solar eclipse on December 14 in your partnership sector, but this month, the emphasis will be on you, what you want, and what makes you happy. A close relationship may be on your mind too, and a decision of whether to move forward together or to part will also be up for review. I worry that concurrent with the eclipse, Uranus, planet of sudden change, will oppose Venus, and Venus in the Gemini solar chart rules your fifth house of love—more specifically, the person you are dating now, but not necessarily married to. Your children come under the fifth house too—keep track of their activities, and, if they are older, which friends are influencing them.
When you have an eclipse in your own sign, it often means a change in your domestic condition too, for the moon has sway over events in the home and family. You might be ready to welcome a new baby, or you may see a roommate, spouse, or sweetheart leave (or you may be the one to move out). That is a lot of change to juggle, but there is more. You may need to adjust your finances to lifestyle changes that you might experience. I say this because the moon is the natural ruler of your second house of salary, possessions, and sources of income. A lunar eclipse may bring expenses, more income, or both. Your mother (ruled by the moon) may need you to assist her, as well.
Gemini who were born on May 29 will be the most likely readers to be touched by this November 30 eclipse, and add a plus or minus of five days. The same is true if you have a natal moon in Gemini or Sagittarius of 9 degrees, in all cases plus or minus five degrees.
At a lunar eclipse, something ends, and something else begins. They make us more emotional, and sometimes sentimental, even when the change is welcome. Eclipses remind us of the passage of time.
Next month’s new moon on December 14 will mark a start and it won’t make you nostalgic—it will be quite exciting.
A full moon in Scorpio will greet you the moment the month begins. Although it technically arrived on October 31, you will feel the effects of this difficult full moon for the first four days of November. Uranus will oppose the Sun and conjoin the moon, a volatile configuration that signifies separations or radical change. This full moon occurred in Taurus, your twelfth house of secrets, so if anyone has withheld an important piece of information from you, you will hear about it as a result of this supermoon eclipse. (A supermoon orbits very close to Earth and looks huge in the night sky.)
This month will ask much of each of us, no matter what our sign happens to be, for instantly, at the start of the month, Uranus, the planet of unanticipated events, will oppose the Sun and rattle the moon. As if that’s not enough, by mid-month, Uranus will directly oppose your ruler Mercury and later, at month’s end, Uranus will oppose Venus. This is not usual. For Uranus to be picking on all these planets at different points of the month suggests Uranus is testing to see if something—anything—is not working in your life, and if so, it will be swept away in the blink of an eye. Every so often, Uranus looks for that which is outworn or of no further value, and if it finds something, ends that situation instantly. Uranus then works with you to rebuild anything you feel you lost.
Another area this full moon may affect is your work-a-day life, such as if you were to leave one company to join another, for it seems likely you will be making your income from a new source. If you are self-employed, this full moon could bring a new, better client. With that acquisition, you might need to leave a present client due to a conflict of interest. Alternatively, a trusted worker who you depend upon might suddenly announce her departure, quite out of the blue. The moon is always female, so I feel your team member or assistant would be female.
You are fortunate, for as a Gemini, you are known to be supremely adaptable, flexible, and resourceful. Those innate talents will help you conform to all the changes this month will bring. You are one of the few signs that realize change is good and is to be embraced.
This full moon at the end of October falls in your twelfth house, and the Sun is in the sixth house—and both deal with your health. You may take a radical new medical course of action, perhaps to remedy an illness you have been coping with. Now, you may want to try a new technique that comes to your attention. Most importantly, it will be vital for you to remain strong and to take steps to avoid the coronavirus. November is the month I have designated as most likely to spike to new, higher numbers, due to the meeting of Jupiter and Pluto on November 12. After the end of December, we will be less obsessed with the virus, so I feel we might hear of a breakthrough, if not near Christmas, then by January 12. As a Gemini, you love to keep up with the news, and that will keep you safe.
The new moon November 14 will occur in your work sector and could easily bring a new assignment that will stimulate your imagination, as well as bring positive publicity to you after you finish it. If you work on a performance-based system, such as on commission or a royalty basis, you will likely make a generous sum. Gemini rules communication, so with Uranus about to oppose Mercury on the sidelines, you will need to be careful with the words that you use now, both in writing, speech, and also in social media. Additionally, don’t sign a contract at this time, and if possible, put off doing so until early in December.
The month ends with a lunar eclipse, November 30, in Gemini, putting the spotlight on you and what you desire to be happy in life, while you also consider a close committed relationship. It might mark the end of a professional or personal relationship. This may have been in the process through the second half of 2020, but this may make your decision official. Generally speaking, 75% of eclipses are felt within five days of their appearance, 10% are felt one month to the day earlier, and 15% one month to the day later, and in all cases, plus or minus five days.
This eclipse is tied to one that occurred June 5, so think back to discussions and events of that time (you may want to check your email messages). It is a similar eclipse to the one that occurred on November 28, 2012. As November comes to a close, you might see how events in June led to events happening now. When something ends in astrology, something else begins—the December 14 eclipse next month will give you a big, positive clue that should make you happy.
