November 2011 Taurus Love Horoscope

Different strokes

If you're ready to take your relationship life to another level, this can be a good month for you. But if you're more interested in standing still and avoiding changes in your partnership or, if you're single, refusing to change how you play the dating game, then this could be a frustrating time. The key player in this story is Venus, the planet of love and the one associated with your sensual sign. She leaves your 7th House of Others on Nov. 2, along with verbal Mercury, and soars into adventurous Sagittarius and your 8th House of Intimacy. This raises the stakes in matters of the heart by requiring you to stretch your boundaries, which could include accepting aspirations and values that are different than your own. But most importantly, it's about opening, taking chances and being more honest about what you need in relationships. It's also about being more willing to hear about others' desires.

Of course, you might not feel safe doing this, but help comes in the form of assertive Mars, which enters careful Virgo and your 5th House of Romance on Nov. 10. This transit provides a greater sense of personal authority and self-control that can help you reach out to people who are different than you or to work with a partner who is pushing your limits. The clearer you are about your intentions, the more capable you'll be in strange situations. Nov. 10 is also the day of the Full Moon in Taurus, which can bring emotional issues to the surface, challenging you to balance your desires with the demands of others.
