Playing a low-key role should suit you well during the first three weeks of November. The Sun is in secretive Scorpio and your 12th House of Obscurity until November 21, which is better for being in a support position than taking the lead. Your willingness to help colleagues without demanding attention should earn you respect and loyalty that pays off in the long run.
Mental Mercury is retrograde in this part of your chart until November 10, which is another reason to stay out of the spotlight. Flaws tend to be amplified during this transit, making this a better time to tighten up procedures and tie up loose ends than to try to make a big splash. Shoring up alliances with co-workers and digging in and doing research are other productive ways to use your time.
On November 6 your ruling planet Jupiter turns retrograde, which provides another chance to reassess your aspirations and, perhaps, approach them differently in the months ahead. The Sun forms a favorable trine with planet Jupiter on November 12, but it may take some time before you're willing or able to act on what you see.
There's a significant shift in the astrological winds on November 21 when the Sun soars into your enthusiastic sign. This lights up your 1st House of Personality to increase confidence and visibility. Your ability to express yourself and sell your ideas is especially strong with a Mercury-Jupiter trine on November 27, but going too far and promising too much are temptations to avoid on the November 28.
