Jupiter's departure from your relationship sector and return to your financial sector last month has changed the dynamics of the year, with Saturn's return to your career sector next month changing them even more, in a fairly dramatic way. Both are big deals. Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion changes signs once a year and this changes where the main focus and thrust is. There will always be different themes in play, but where Jupiter leads the year follows. Saturn on the other hand only changes signs once every three years, so his last full month in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery is a big deal, as will be his return to your career sector next month. This makes this a month where there is a lot of change and a lot of changing pending, but most of all this is a transition month. Pluto and Juno are already in your career sector and after Mars left your work sector late last month, the professional gods are already shifting their focus onto career matters. However, until Saturn returns on the 20th December this is something that is happening in the background. In the meantime, there is a transition taking place from a relationship and onto a financial focus. The Sun, Mercury and Jupiter all left your relationship sector last month, taking a lot of pressure off you and your relationships. Their focus is now on getting a powerful new year for financial growth off the ground. However Venus, in your relationship sector until the 8th November and Mars until the 9th December, are squeezing out every possible advantage for your relationships.
The spotlight will always be on your relationships at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of November in your relationship sector. Yet for the first time in over a decade, Jupiter is here as well, having returned 12 days before the Sun last month. The Sun will leave on the 22nd November and Mercury, who also starts the month here, will leave on the 6th November. Yet even Venus, who returns on the 8th November and Mars, who returns early next month, are just passing through. These are the planets that have returned to support both the Sun's annual relationship update and the start of your most important relationship year in over a decade. At this stage, it is all good news and that will remain the case for the majority of Jupiter's 13 month visit. A Full Moon in Taurus on the 4th November might create some personal and/or relationship tension. However, this is the Full Moon that falls at this time every year and is checked to ensure that your own needs aren't be ignored. This also brings you to the halfway point of this current solar year, with a chance for some personal checks and balances. In the meantime, while Jupiter's departure from your work sector wrapped up his 13 month visit there, it is only this month that Venus and Mars are able to exploit and explore all the potential created. This is also an important month for money matters, with a need to have your head in the game from the 6th November.
As much as this month might present you with the challenge of having to find a balance between work and play, it is one that you need to take seriously. While the Sun has always and will always spend the first three weeks of November in your work sector, with Jupiter in his first full month of a 13 month journey and the tide turning on the career front on the 23rd November, you've reached the business end of this professional year. This might be the point of any year where the focus shifts to your work situation and job matters, this is a start of a push that will take until early 2019 to run its course. Yet all the planets that are now in your work sector, including the Sun and Jupiter, only just left your romantic and creative sector last month. With Venus staying on until the 8th November and Mars until early next month, the planets of love and passion are determined to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. Yet they can only hold out for so long and on the 8th November Venus will return to your work sector, followed by Mars a month later. If you're going to find a balance between work and play, it has to happen now. In the meantime there are some important developments on the relationship front, with Mercury joining Saturn in your relationship sector on the 6th November. This comes just as Saturn's last full month here is bringing you to the end of a three year relationship boot camp, one that is loaded with support in these final weeks. Mercury, who should move through your relationship sector in just 15 days, will instead turn retrograde next month, spending over two months giving your relationships a voice and ensuring the communication lines are open.
Sometimes the challenges we go through don't make sense at the time, but when we eventually get to a point where we can look back and understand why. You're likely to reach that point this month, where the biggest challenge you've had to face this year turns into a gift. The one challenge that has dogged you for the past 12 months has been Jupiter's constant and ongoing oppositions with Uranus and Eris in your career sector. Jupiter's last opposition only played out last month, just as the Sun was also moving into opposition. It wasn't until the Sun left your home and family sector on the 23rd October, 12 days behind Jupiter that professional pressure or work/life balance tension dropped back. Career forces haven't suffered at all, with Uranus' alliance with Saturn on the work front peaking from the 5th November to the 15th November. This comes just as Mercury's return to your work sector on the 6th November will see work matters you've been working on or towards all year, start to come together. This is a stunning month for work and job matters, with your professional year catching its second wind. You would think that this would simply have you relieved that the work/life balance challenges and tensions are behind you. Instead, it is work/life balance that is now the most valuable theme and is something you've worked all year to achieve. The difference is that you now know why. For while things are coming together professionally, this is also the first full month of your luckiest year for love, matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative in over a decade. Life can no longer be all work and no play and thanks to the work/life balance boot camp you've spent the last 12 months in, you know how to make sure that doesn't happen.
Once a year the Sun and Jupiter, the two largest and most powerful forces in the solar system come together and when they do a huge amount of light, positivity and optimism is poured into an area of your chart. This month you are enjoying a double dip, for while the Sun and Jupiter began last month in your communication sector, they begin this month in your home and family sector, having both returned there last month. However, once the Sun leaves on the 22nd November, they won't come together again until next October. In 11 months' time Jupiter will be in the final weeks of a journey that he is just now starting. For while the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of November in your home and family sector, shining the solar spotlight on home and family matters, Jupiter is making his first visit in over a decade. This brings you to the start of an important and expansive 13 month journey for home, family and/or property matters. This is something that will give your life a lot of stability, with having roots and feeling grounded important. It is from that foundation that you're able to go out and conquer the world. It is this month that will also see a lot more focus shift onto matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. Make the most of this, for there are not only major developments on the job front from next month, but expanding to include major career developments next year as well. This makes it important to pay attention to a Full Moon in your career sector on the 4th November, as the professional gods may use this as a stepping stone.
It is your personal life that is getting a lot more focus this month and that includes across the home, family, relationship, communication and even relationship fronts. What is important to note is that 'focus' is not code for challenges and that in all aspects of your personal life things are looking good. Apart from a Full Moon in your career sector next month, the professional gods have largely played all their cards, with the South Node's position in your work sector keeping work and job matters on track. You've reached a point in your professional year where if you're quite happy to leave any new moves or decisions to the New Year, the professional gods are happy to as well. It was Mars' departure from Virgo on the 23rd October, the same day that the Sun returned to your communication sector that saw the pressure drop off your relationships and the support kick in. This is just part of the communication support this month and with Neptune turning direct in your relationship sector on the 23rd November, there is support while in retrograde motion and after. An important month for relationship rebuilding, this is a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice. There is also a strong call for more focus on home and family matters, even before the Sun returns on the 22nd November. This is when the solar spotlight will always fall onto home and family matters each year. Mercury's return on the 6th November will bring this forward, with communication once again a deciding factor. Yet there is a new sense of fun and even romance in the air. This is more a sense of confidence and anticipation, but you're starting to pick up on what lies ahead next month.
Across most aspects of your life but especially on the personal and relationship fronts, you can breathe a sigh of relief this month. It was the Sun's departure from Libra on the 23rd October that not only brought your birthday month to a close, but 12 days after Jupiter left as well, this took the pressure off you and your relationships. In their final days in Libra, both the Sun and Jupiter moved into opposition with Uranus, in retrograde motion in your relationship sector. Even if their departure just took the pressure off that would be enough, but from the 5th November to the 15th November, an alignment with Saturn in your communication sector peaks. With Saturn leaving your communication sector next month and Uranus starting to leave your relationship sector next year, this is the last time they will ever meet up here again in our lifetime. Yet it comes just as the rebuilding can begin. Mercury, planet of communication will even return to your communication sector on the 6th November, to help with this. In the meantime, while the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of November in your income sector, for the first time in over a decade Jupiter is here as well. Unlike Mercury, who will leave on the 6th November, the Sun on the 22nd November and Venus who will move through from the 8th November to the 1st December, Jupiter is not just passing through. This is Jupiter's first full month in a 13 month visit and the start of your luckiest and most lucrative income year in over a decade. This is what both planets on the work front have been waiting years for.
Starting the month with the Sun in Scorpio is a given at this time of year, for this is your birthday month and the start of your new solar year. Yet while having the Sun in Scorpio during the first three weeks of November is the norm having Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion is definitely not. In his first full month in Scorpio in over a decade, this not only brings you to the start of a lucky and expansive year but to the start of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. Jupiter returned 12 days before your birthday month and new solar year began and will leave during your next birthday month, in November 2018. This means that you have luck in Scorpio from the moment this new solar year began until the moment it ends. If it feels like this year is different and that this is 'your' year, this is why. This gets your new solar year off to a powerful start, but also means that when Mercury leaves on the 6th November, it will be too soon to have a game plan or resolutions. Venus, who will give your heart a voice doesn't even arrive in Scorpio until the 8th November and Mars won't return until early next month. In the meantime, Jupiter's lucky influence seems to be having a flow on effect, for you have also reached a good month for income, work and career matters, with even matters of the heart and your relationships getting a look in. At the time a Full Moon in your relationship sector on the 4th November might push some buttons, but with some major relationship developments next year, the relationship gods will be using this as a stepping stone.
This is a point in the year when the lines between the past, present and future will always become blurred, as is always the case when one solar year comes to an end and another begins. While the Sun will leave a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on the 22nd November, bringing your old solar year to a close and in the process kicking off your birthday month and new solar year, things are never clear cut. And this year that is even more the case, for even before Mercury returns to Sagittarius on the 6th November, Saturn has been here for nearly three years. In fact, this is Saturn's last full month in Sagittarius, before leaving on the 20th December. Saturn has been looking to the future since turning direct in August. Yet even when your birthday month and new solar year begins on the 22nd November, with Venus and Jupiter still in a nostalgic part of your chart, old doors will remain open. In fact, they will remain open for another year, with Jupiter in the first full month of the 13 month wind down of your current 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. This is not something that should be a problem and chances are you've already mastered the art of looking to the future when you want to, but escaping into a sense of nostalgia when you can. This month it is a sense of romantic nostalgia that is likely to take hold. For not only will Venus, planet of love return to a nostalgic part of your chart on the 8th November, both Uranus and Eris are in retrograde motion in your romantic sector and will be for the rest of the year. In the meantime, while things are a lot quieter professionally this month, keep your work hat on a day either side of a Full Moon in your work sector on the 4th November.
While the Sun and Jupiter both left your career sector last month, ending a 13 month professional push and even at times challenging, things all come together this month. Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion, but what made this a potentially challenging time, was the constant oppositions with Uranus and Eris in your home and family sector. Jupiter's last opposition was early last month, after which the Sun then moved into opposition. Yet by the time the Sun left on the 23rd October, this would have seen professional pressure or work/life balance tension drop right back. With Venus in your career sector until the 8th November and Mars until early next month, they are the perfect planets to restore order where there was chaos and to exploit all the potential. Mars will spend the whole month driving things home professionally, while until she leaves, Venus will focus on boosting your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. In the meantime, life takes on a more social focus, with Jupiter leading you into a powerful new period for friendship and relationship building. There is even a playful and romantically charged Full Moon on the 5th November, something that is more important than it might appear to be. For with Venus returning to Capricorn next month and major romantic developments next year, the love gods will use this Lovers' Moon as a stepping stone. Focus less on what this might or might not trigger and more to how your heart responses. In the meantime, even before the month long wind down of your old solar year begins on the 22nd November, recognise when you need to put out the 'do not disturb' sign.
There is always going to be a lot of focus on career matters at this time of year and a push to bring your professional year home. Yet this has little to do with the approaching New Year and everything to do with the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of November in your career sector. The solar spotlight is always on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, this is where the similarities with any other year in over a decade begin and end, for this year you have lucky Jupiter here as well. It was Jupiter's return 12 days ahead of the Sun last month that meant before the solar spotlight even turned on your professional game the planet of luck and expansion had kicked off your biggest year for professional growth, expansion and opportunities in over a decade. Planets will come and go all month, Mercury leaving on the 6th November, Venus arriving on the 8th November and the Sun leaving on the 22nd November, ensuring there is always company for this giant planet. Yet here until November 2018, rather than a two month push to bring this professional year home, this is the start of a professional push that you won't be in a rush to bring home until this time next year. This means that you are running a marathon and not a sprint. This allows you to play a longer game, giving you time to enjoy this month's adventurous influence and all a boost in focus on personal and professional networking. Your professional star is on the rise, but there is no reason why you can't have a vibrant social life and even time for a mix of romance, passion and adventure.
Mercury's return to your career sector on the 6th November and the Sun's on the 22nd November, all while Saturn is in his last full month here, should be a case of 'game over' in terms of your professional year taking over. Saturn is in the last full month of a three year visit that began in December 2014 and due to leave next month, once Mercury and the Sun return, it would take something powerful to counter this. While this is something you want to embrace and it brings you to the most powerful point of a powerful three year period, it is important to have balance. The only planet strong enough and insistent enough to balance out Saturn's energy, especially once support returns to bring things home is Jupiter. As well as being the planet of luck and expansion, Jupiter is the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system. And Jupiter is spending his first full month in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery in over a decade and he's here until November 2018. Jupiter isn't just creating an adventurous month but has brought you to the start of your most adventurous year in over a decade. Jupiter and Saturn are the strongest influences in our chart and with one starting a new journey and the other coming to the end of a three year journey, they are working to balance adventure with your professional game. This will continue through to March, when the last planet leaves your career sector. Yet rather than get in each other's way, Jupiter brings the concept of the journey into every aspect of your life and especially your professional journey. This is likely to enhance rather than distract from what should be a good month across the income, work and career fronts.
