This is a month of delays you can use to your advantage once you accept that things will take longer than you've planned. You may need to put relationship issues on the front burner when Mercury starts backtracking in your 7th House of Partners on November 6. However, your daily routine is affected, too, for mental Mercury reenters your 6th House of Work on November 14, remaining there through December 10.
Although the heavenly messenger turns direct on November 26, its sluggish movement through the end of the month means you could actually lose ground as you review recent mistakes, reconsider your assumptions, redo your calendar and reinvent your strategy for success. You may grow frustrated with your lack of momentum and attempt to speed things up, but to no avail. Don't think that you have failed if something slips through the cracks. Instead, make a commitment to be patient and dig deeper than ever before to uncover the information that will allow you to improve the quality of your daily life.
Two eclipses -- a Solar Eclipse on November 13 and a Lunar Eclipse on November 28 -- overwhelm you with an abundance of nervous tension. You feel as if you're standing on a precipice and must take exactly the right step to prevent misfortune. The transformational Scorpio New Moon Eclipse on November 13 is a great time to initiate improvements in your diet and exercise regimen, because it activates your 6th House of Health and Habits. The Gemini Full Moon Eclipse on November 28 joins propitious Jupiter in your 12th House of Destiny, supporting renewed faith that your hard work will soon be rewarded.
Keep in Mind this Month
If you're just spinning your wheels and getting nowhere fast, back up, catch your breath, reassess your approach and try again.
Key Dates for Gemini
November 9-11: Sweet Escape
Flirty Venus in your 5th House of Love and Play forms a delicious trine with opulent Jupiter on November 9, replacing problems with pleasure. A fantasy-prone Venus-Neptune alignment further inspires you to believe in your dreams. But a disappointing semisquare between social Mercury and Venus on November 11 can sour the stew and take the fun out of a delightful conversation if you hold on to unrealistic expectations.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
November 13-17: Out of Your Element
Entering unfamiliar territory may not feel comfortable on November 13, when the enigmatic Scorpio New Moon Eclipse forces you to leave language behind and jump into an emotional abyss. You may feel out of sorts from Mercury's square to spacey Neptune on November 13, or by Mercury's entry into the shadows of Scorpio on November 14. Stable Saturn aligns with forgiving Chiron on November 16, offering healing compassion. Although energetic Mars enters persistent Capricorn and your 8th House of Regeneration the same day to push you along on your path, Mars' sextile to metaphysical Neptune on November 17 favors a spiritual awakening that can catalyze a deep restoration of your well-being.
