Taurus Horoscope: November 2013
Fasten your seatbelt
You can absorb a great deal of stress this month without showing any signs of wear and tear. The evolutionary Uranus-Pluto square on Nov. 1 is part of a continuing series of aspects that recurs three more times through March 16, 2015, irrevocably changing your view of the world.
The transformative Scorpio Solar Eclipse on Nov. 3 falls in your 7th House of Partners, possibly shifting the dynamics of a significant relationship. This New Moon Eclipse joins conservative Saturn -- and is followed by a Sun-Saturn conjunction on Nov. 6 -- requiring you to follow the rules of engagement and demanding that you respond in a reliable manner.
When your ruling planet, Venus, enters strategic Capricorn and your 9th House of Future Vision on Nov. 5, you're willing to delay gratification because you believe that long-term success is sweeter than temporal pleasure. Additionally, communicator Mercury remains retrograde in your interactive 7th House of Partners until Nov. 10, requiring you to reconsider recent decisions and revise your plans, if necessary.
However, Mercury turns direct on Nov. 10, releasing you from your emotional ties to the past, while a joyful Sun-Jupiter trine on Nov. 12 infuses you with contentment. Optimism gives way to darker feelings that could include possessiveness, jealousy or greed when stylish Venus conjuncts shrewd Pluto on Nov. 15.
The sensual Taurus Full Moon on Nov. 17 lights up your relationship houses, yet its harsh aspect to Pluto indicates that you still have residual negative feelings to resolve. Fortunately, a series of more supportive aspects that occur on Nov. 19-23 and Nov. 27-30 restores your self-confidence, increases your flexibility, and inspires you to follow through with positive actions to improve your life.
Keep in Mind this Month
It may take a while for you to find your groove, but persistence and patience will pay off in steady gains by the end of the month.
Key Dates for Taurus
SUPER NOVA DAYS
Nov. 1-3: Shift Happens
Your world may be a pressure cooker for change as revolutionary Uranus squares unrelenting Pluto on Nov. 1, yet the support you receive from others lets you withstand the duress with grace. Mercury Retrograde joins the Sun in your 7th House of Companions to deliver a message that you've heard before, but this time it finally clicks. The Sun-Mercury conjunction cooperates with fearless Mars, incisive Pluto and therapeutic Chiron, blessing you with compassion and enough clarity to realize that a change in direction is inevitable. The powerful Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on Nov. 3 brings the point home once more; it's time to let go of an old relationship story that has served its purpose and open your heart to what's next.
Nov. 27-30: Lucky Charms
Be careful what you ask for, because you're persuasive enough now to actually get what you want. Mischievous Mercury in your social 7th House of Partners forms a friendly sextile to flirtatious Venus in your 9th House of Adventure on Nov. 27, heating up a casual conversation with someone you like. You can make a good situation sound even better when chatty Mercury trines jolly Jupiter on Nov. 28. Indulgence isn't out of the question, either, because Venus opposes permissive Jupiter on the same day. Fortunately, the fun continues through Nov. 30, when the optimistic Sagittarius Sun trines outrageous Uranus, convincing you to enjoy all that life currently has to offer.
