November Lovescope [Harper's Bazaar]
YOUR COMPLETE LOVE SCOPE FOR NOVEMBER
Rebecca Gordon of MyPathAstrology shares insight into the month ahead as Mars moves into Aquarius.
Mars represents your style of going about getting what you want in life, your work drive, sex drive, energy and stamina. Mars has been in the earthy, and very driven sign of Capricorn since Sept. 27th and will be there till Dec. 19th so stamina has been high and this may be a time of accomplishing quite a lot in the office and in the boudoir as well. Mars in Cap is the ultimate 'work hard, play hard' of the zodiac. So we Mars will say 'later' to Capricorn as he enters the futuristic air sign of Aquarius on Nov. 9th and will remain there for two months. This will be an era where new and non-traditional solutions will win out from the old standards. Like your company may finally replace the archaic project management software it's been using since the 90's. And you can pitch your groundbreaking, market-disrupting, totally mind-bending idea without blinking and see hungry eyes begging for your biz card. When Mars is in Aquarius, people will naturally favor the new & innovative, over the old standards so be daring and unapologetically you. This goes for your relationship too. Explore new types of sensual and sexual communication with your partner as Aquarius inspires a journey of experimentation. The best part about Mars in Aquarius is that it really opens up the communication lines to anything that is experimental and new.
Venus, the planet of love and money, rules the things you are naturally attracted to in life – what you like versus what repels you. Our Goddess Venus has been in fiery, active, and adventurous Sagittarius since Oct. 18th and she will remain there until Nov. 12th. This is a festive and celebratory time so if you are in love or looking for it. Your best luck with love will be in attending cultural events, go to festivities, and travel. Venus loves to adventure in Sagittarius so it's an ideal time to explore new events alone if single and introduce your partner to your friends at festivities if you're attached. Love takes on a fun, and adventurous quality as Venus moves through Sadge. Though on November 12th, Venus will enter serious Capricorn, and this begins a time when you may begin to ask the serious and practical questions about your relationship. If it has been all fun and games or if there are missing links or perhaps a lack of commitment, this is when the heaviness of Capricorn will address all of the above and this can either seal your relationship into a commitment or else it may fall apart under the stark realism and pragmatism of Capricorn. Either way, we must welcome in the new love language because as Venus and Mars change signs, it means that your relations are ready to grow, develop and strengthen.
Astrology is the language of energy and when our passion planets change sign, so does the love language.
