Check out what’s going on for your star sign in November, from Miss FQ’s spiritual writer One Grounded Angel.

If you could sum up 2018 in three words, it would probably be this: too freakin’ slow. And this month continues that theme (soz). Saturn, the planet of adulting, is shuffling through your 10th house of work and ambition – and taking its sweet-ass time about it – which means it’s taking aaaages for you to slay professionally and personally (and patience is not exactly your thing, amirite?). On November 16 until December, you might hit more hurdles with the Mercury retrograde. But don’t give up on your goals, Aries – remember that every kettle boils eventually. Hang on to your inner Zen. If Ariana Grande can get through her year of drama, you can get through this.
In the romance department, you’re about to feel sexier than a celeb in a perfume commercial (but without all the intense gazing into the distance LOL). From November 7, the new moon in Scorpio, sign of sex and intimacy, in your eighth house, the zone of sex and intimacy, brings you… yep, better sex. You’ll either break the bed springs or bond with someone on an emotional level.
BTW Aries considering study – even low-key, like workshops and seminars – RN and into 2019 should definitely go for it.

Are you really in it for love, or, like a fame-hungry Bachelor contestant, do you have a different agenda? November is all about getting real in romance. Coupled-up Taureans who’ve lost that loving feeling will decide whether to stay or go, while singles ready for a serious relationship will be sending out the right vibes to attract Mr/Ms Right (holler!).
Around the November 7 new moon in Scorpio, sign of long-term love (pro tip: anything that involves Scorpio, your opposite sign, may be hella intense for you, too), is all about following your intuition – which always knows what’s really right for you. The planets want you to focus with the precision of a laser-eyed kiwi on the type of relationship you really want. What qualities do you like? What romantic patterns do you need to break? Maybe, like Channing Tatum, you keep attracting the same type…
Speaking of Jessie J, Taurus is allll about the money. Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, hits your eighth house of financial partnerships from November 8 until late 2019. Savvy Taureans might join forces with bae or the Bank of Mum and Dad to buy a house, or work with a financial planner to sort out their pingas #goodadulting
(May 21-June 21)
Life. Oh, life. Ohhhh liiiife. Sorry to sound like the Desiree song your local Countdown keeps thrashing, but things are a little facepalm-y in Gemini Land RN, no? Saturn, planet of adulting, is in your eighth house of commitment, shining a light on your tendency to cut and run when things get too hard – in relationships, in jobs, in all the things. You’re getting schooled in some important life lessons this year, and just like Ariana Grande, you’re learning that rushing into things then suddenly bailing doesn’t end well.
Feeling like you’ve outgrown your squad? Blame the planets. Uranus, planet of change, moves into your 11th house, zone of friendships, on November 6 until March, trashing the place like a gang of drunk Year 13s at the after-ball. You may be feeling like you don’t really fit in any longer. Keep doing you, Gemini – that’s how you’ll attract your tribe. Hey, being different worked out pretty nicely for Lorde, with that whole chart success and cashflow thing.
And it’s all about you on November 23 when the full moon in your sign hits your first house – the zone of self. Maybe get your hair did, rebrand on social media or plan a solo holiday.
(June 22-July 22)

If your personal life needs an inorganic recycling day, good news – the planets are on a rampage, nagging you to clear out all your old crap. And it’s not just about that pile of bank statements dating back to 2005 – it’s also about the emotional clutter dragging you down. Jupiter, the planet that goes big, is shining a light on your sixth house of wellness and organisation from November 8 into 2019. Free yourself from regrets over the past, attachments to exes who were never worthy of your good lovin’ or the habit of underrating your ability at work. Time for some healthier habits, stat. Remember how Lady Gaga lost Taylor Kinney and her career took a dive? Now she’s smashing life with a hit movie and a new fiancé. #inspo
You may have some trouble sleeping around November 23, just FYI. The full moon in Gemini, sign of intellect, and your 12th house of unresolved issues, mean your mind could be running over every stupid thing you’ve ever done in your life (so helpful!). Your challenge: figuring out when your intuition is flagging where you need closure and when it’s just your mind “wigging out”, as Rory Gilmore would say. Trust your gut.
(July 23-August 22)
There’s a lot of fireworks hitting your sign this month, and, nope, it’s got nothing to do with Guy Fawkes. From November 8, Jupiter, the planet that pretty much blows things up, is in your fifth house of passion and creativity, and it’s staying right through 2019. Expect Dr Meredith Grey to rush in with the defibrillator, shocking new energy into relationships that are flatlining, and reviving any Leos who are so bored with life they can’t tell whether they’re awake or asleep. You’re about to fall in love with your badass self again, in a non-Kanye way – it’s about self-approval not self-adoration. Use this Jupiter energy to focus on learning a new skill, starting a new project (side-hustle, maybe?) or giving your life a Queer-Eye do-over. And if your relationship is on Struggle Street, the best thing you can do is really listen when your SO speaks (no offence Leo, but you do tend to dominate the convo…).
Around November 19 you’ll wanna dial down the drama. Mars, planet of aggression, and Jupiter, the big-game planet, are doing fisticuffs, and you’ll be feeling the tension. Avoid going ballistic at anyone – overreact and you could do major damage.
(August 23-September 22)
There’s a reason the writers of Sex and the City made sure Carrie Bradshaw ended up marrying Mr Big: being in a long-term, adoring-the-crap-out-of-each-other relationship will never not be on-trend. This month, Virgo, look at whether your relationship is at that level or whether you might be – *cringe* – settling. Saturn, planet of adulting, is in your fifth house of romance and passion, which means if you’re sleeping with Mr/Ms Mediocre simply because you’re bored with your life, that choice is going to become increasingly uncomfortable. Also, look at the balance of power in your romance – have you given up everything for bae? The fifth house is all about the things that make you come alive (kinda like how a new iPhone brings tech geeks out into the light) so make sure you didn’t abandon your own passions and dreams on route to Romanceville. Attn singles: from November 15 until year’s end, Mars, planet of sex and intimacy, is in your seventh house of relationships, so you could have someone pretty special to kiss on NYE (woo!).
Your #worklyf gets some serious juice around the November 23 full moon in your 10th house of ambition. If you sniff out an opportunity to step up, grab it with both your beautifully manicured hands.
(September 23-October 23)
If you’re single, don’t spend November 9 at home deepening the butt dent on your couch. Venus, planet of love, is cosying up to Mars, planet of intimacy, meaning you’re working some good vibes (#hot). This could spark the sort of passionate romance Ed Sheeran writes songs about…
In other news, there’s a major emphasis on parentals this month. Saturn, planet of adulting, is in your fourth house of family and females, highlighting any faultlines in parental relationships – especially your mum. Saturn might prompt you to set boundaries against any overstepping or unfairness, or to work through any childhood issues – maybe with a counsellor – where you’re still carrying pain. (That’s an accessory you can definitely do without, Libra.) And if you’re a mum, you might think about whether you’ve been a bit lax with the rules, and also check you aren’t so immersed in your kids’ lives, a la Dance Moms, you’ve forgotten about your own life.
PSA for November 16 to December 6: Mercury, planet of communication, ideas and intellect, is going retrograde in your third house of communication, ideas and intellect – yep, that’s a double-whammy. Expect brain fog and a concentration span shorter than a goldfish’s. Avoid starting anything new, and be extra-careful with your words.
(October 24-November 21)
Scorpio, can you smell smoke? ‘Cause you are seriously on fire ATM. From November 8, Jupiter, the planet that blows up whatever it touches, hits your second house of work and money, meaning the planets are super-charging you with energy to conquer your profesh and financial goals like a boss. But what will you do with all that good juju? Decide what you really want – promotion? New job? Mortgage? You can’t hit goals you don’t aim at, so the planets want you to follow Katniss Everdeen’s lead (without all the death and sadness, obvs) and focus your bow and arrow on the goal you want to hit over the next year.
Also, not to sound like a sanctimonious nutrition blogger (ugh), but you’ll need to be a little more disciplined when it comes to kai. You don’t have to go full keto or anything, but not overdoing the processed foods and empty carbs could make you feel less like a pregnant dolphin and more like a glowing royal bride. Some Scorps may even board the meat-free train this month. Remember: it’s not about your weight, it’s about getting a ton of nutrients. Boring? A little. Important? Very. You do remember what spinach did for Popeye, right?
(November 22-December 21)
Your relentless (and, let’s face it, occasionally annoying) optimism is about to pay off in a big way, Sagittarius. This is the month you take your rightful place as the Queen of Everything, and you’re so here for it! Jupiter, the planet that brings fortune, is landing in your sign from November 8 until December next year, which means a serious boost to your professional and personal life (yasssss!).
Career-wise, your leadership game has never been stronger, so chase down opportunities for more responsibility. You’ll be magnetic AF during this time so if you get the chance to give speeches or lead workshops, say ‘hell yes!’ with a Leslie Knope level of enthusiasm.
On November 23 the full moon in your seventh house of romance highlights the c word (commitment, obvs). Couples who are kinda half-in, half-out might have a big talk, and singles could attract someone with serious long-term potential. More into having fun than settling down? From November 15 until NYE, Mars, planet of sex, is upping the ante on bedroom activity. BTW this zone is also about emotional attachments, so it may be hard not to fall for that friends with benefits playmate…
(December 22-January 19)

You live your life at Road-runner speed, and you ain’t slowing down for anybody. But, that’s not going to work out so well for you this month (soz). From November 8 right through 2018, Jupiter, the planet that turns up the volume, is in your 12th house of rest, meaning your energy reserves have pretty much buggered off to a meditation retreat. The Universe could force you to slow down through illness, job loss, a break-up or opportunities drying up faster than a Kiwi traveller’s savings in London. Yep, it’ll be frustrating AF – but maybe, just maybe, it’s what you need so you can recharge and get some perspective on where you’re going and what you want. The best thing to do is chill (um, you *do* remember how to do that, right?). Your intuition will be on fire RN, so pay attention – it’s probably just casually telling you what to let go of and what isn’t working any longer.
Some good news: the gift of the gap is downloading into your sign from November 15 until NYE, helping you make sales, get sexy people’s phone numbers and convince your minions to help you take over the world – after you’ve had a nap, obvs.
(January 20-February 18)
Aquarius, you’re about to live your best life. For reals! From November 8, lucky planet Jupiter sails into your eleventh house – which is actually your queendom – meaning you’ll be your most Aquarius self ever, right up until December 2019. Party invitations will be flowing thick and fast, super-helpful peeps will appear (think: collabs, for both work and play) and you could even attract a whole new squad.
If you’re thirsty for a challenge, take your focus wider than just your hot self and onto making a difference. Aquarians are natural humanitarians, so channel your inner Emma Watson and get on board with a political cause or not-for-profit project; maybe refugee support, women’s rights or climate change action, for example. But watch your mental wellbeing – you don’t want to become defeated by how effed up the world can be. Hold on to hope and know that all will be well, eventually.
On a less serious note, Venus, planet of love, gets out of retrograde on November 16 so your love life is back on form. It’ll become easier to see who’s got your back and who’s so not worth your time. Any recent dramas with bae will disappear like sauv blanc at Friday night drinks.

The planets are about to get all Tony Robbins on your sign, loading you up with serious motivation (yes please!). Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, hits your 10th house of career and long-term plans from November 8 right through until late 2019, which means the stars are pretty much lighting a fire under your ass. What do you want to be when you grow up – or just, you know, next year? What do you want to make happen in the next year – write a book? Start a blog? Steal your boss’ job? Plan out how to turn your dreams into your IRL adventures, and know the Universe is right behind you. Except… it’s also kinda not. From November 16 until early December, Mercury, planet of communication, hits your 10th house (again with the work stuff!) meaning misunderstandings and miscommunications are more likely to happen than traffic jams in Coromandel over summer. Try to listen to what people *aren’t* saying – that means reading between the lines – and trust your gut instincts. Don’t take anything too personally during this time.
In sexy news, Erotic planet Mars is tapping your sign from November 15 until NYE, meaning you’ll have more sexual confidence than Amy Schumer in I Feel Pretty.
