November 2011 Aries Horoscope

Dreams on hold

Your love of adventure is spurred this month as three planets move into enthusiastic Sagittarius and your 9th House of Faraway Places. Delightful Venus and curious Mercury enter this visionary part of your chart on Nov. 2, lifting your attention from day-to-day matters and turning your thoughts toward more expansive experiences. Practical matters may interfere with your reverie, however, during the Taurus Full Moon on Nov. 10. This illuminating event occurs in your 2nd House of Resources, requiring you to measure costs more closely. Mars' move into analytical Virgo the same day sharpens your mental acuity and encourages you to concentrate on down-to-earth issues.

You long to escape again when the Sun shoots into Sagittarius and your 9th house on Nov. 22. Not so fast, though, since Mercury, the master of details, slips into reverse on Nov. 24, and will be retrograde in your 9th house until Dec. 13. Hitting the road during this period can be extremely complicated, as can doing business at a distance. If you're locked into a trip or engaged in serious negotiations during this cycle, make sure to double- and triple-check every detail.

Keep in Mind this Month
Finding brief moments of freedom every day provides the fresh air you need to keep going when you can't get away from it all.

Key Dates for Aries

Nov. 2 - 3: Charmingly Cheeky
The social and intellectual spice you get with Mercury and Venus' entry into risk-taking Sagittarius on Nov. 2 is kicked up another notch the following day. These friendly planets form free-flowing trines with maverick Uranus in Aries to give wings to your intuition and spontaneity to your interactions with others. New forms of pleasure and brilliantly original ideas make life entertaining for you and everyone around you.

SUPER NOVA DAY

Nov. 23: Arms Control
Keeping your excitement under wraps makes you far more effective today.  An enthusiastic trine between the Sun and radical Uranus can inspire your mind with unconventional ideas and independent instincts. Yet if you act without regard for others' responses, you're likely to stir up more resistance than support. A savvy trine between Mars and Pluto gives you a stealthy force for overcoming obstacles, digging up hidden resources and turning losses into gains. The potency of this pair is much like a dangerous weapon; handle it with care to avoid harming anyone.
