Libra Horoscope: November 2013
Count your blessings
Yours isn't a particularly materialistic sign, Libra, but money is likely to weigh heavily on your mind this month. The Sun's presence in your 2nd House of Income until Nov. 21 reminds you to manage your resources carefully by avoiding frivolous expenses, being a patient bargain hunter, and seeking the most value for your expenditures of time and effort.
An astute Scorpio New Moon Eclipse on Nov. 3 occurs in your 2nd House of Resources, where its conjunction with strict Saturn requires economic discipline. If finances are tight, counter fear by taking positive action however you can. You might return to using underexploited abilities or discover forgotten treasures that can be turned into marketable assets. You have a better chance of sustaining prosperity if you take a long-term view rather than looking for fast money from an immediate fix.
The lingering effects of the long-lasting Uranus-Pluto square on Nov. 1 can continue to destabilize relationships and drive you to accomplish more at work. However, your ruling planet Venus' shift into businesslike Capricorn and your 4th House of Inner Security on Nov. 5 returns your focus to the bottom line.
Mercury's direct turn in your 2nd House of Income on November 10 can also help get money matters moving forward again. A breakthrough in awareness about personal and financial alliances is likely with the tangible Taurus Full Moon in your 8th House of Shared Resources on Nov. 17. A reliable partner can provide a reassuring sense of solidity, but if your companion is greedy or lazy, you'll want to reassess the value of the relationship.
On Nov. 21, the Sun soars into forward-looking Sagittarius and your 3rd House of Information, stimulating your mind with fresh ideas, new connections, and a more optimistic attitude.
Keep in Mind this Month
Gaining control of your cash flow may involve tightening your belt or taking on a second job, but the sense of safety you obtain can be worth the price.
Key Dates for Libra
SUPER NOVA DAYS
Nov. 14-15: Embrace the Unknown
Relationships get weird when alluring Venus slams into an explosive square with wild and crazy Uranus on Nov. 14. Your own moods can be extreme -- sudden desires and instant turnoffs --while those around you are also behaving erratically. Yet shaking up current alliances and the ways that you connect with people can be healthy if you let unexpressed needs and fears rise to the surface. Venus' conjunction with transformative Pluto on Nov. 15 intensifies the situation, although you're tempted to hide uncomfortable emotions instead of facing them directly. Honesty really is your best policy; manipulation only creates suspicion. Just choose a safe situation where you can be truthful without embarrassing anyone.
Nov. 27-28: Know Your Limits
You can discuss delicate matters with skillful sensitivity on Nov. 27, due to a persuasive sextile between talkative verbal Mercury and gracious Venus. Your economic acuity is high, too, making it easier to squeeze the most out of limited resources. You're in a more effusive and free-spending mood on Nov. 28, when Venus opposes grandiose Jupiter, reducing restraint and tempting you to overvalue people and things.
