November 2011 Pisces Horoscope

Over the rainbow

You may be aiming for the stars this month, but it's vital to keep one foot solidly on the ground if you hope to reach your goals. On Nov. 2, inquisitive Mercury and popular Venus fire you up professionally with bright ideas and new contacts when they enter adventurous Sagittarius and your 10th House of Career. Yet your arrows of ambition could be off target when assertive Mars opposes diffusive Neptune on Nov. 7. You might be driven by your own idealism or enticed by someone else's imagination to leap into action before you consider how much effort you'll have to put in to succeed. Your ruling planet Neptune turns direct on Nov. 9, bringing to light dreams that have been bubbling beneath the surface for months. The Full Moon in practical Taurus on Nov. 10 in your 3rd House of Immediate Environment pulls your head out of the clouds to take a more realistic view of your present situation.

Still, it's hard to keep your heart from yearning for worlds beyond this one when the Sun squares spiritual Neptune on Nov. 20. You jump into your work when the Sun enters visionary Sagittarius and your 10th house on Nov. 22, placing you directly in the limelight. The Sagittarius New Moon on Nov. 25 is a Solar Eclipse, suggesting that you may have to take a step back before you can move forward professionally. Mental Mercury's retrograde turn on Nov. 24 reinforces the message to complete unfinished business before taking on new responsibilities.

Keep in Mind this Month
Your heart and mind may be racing toward tomorrow, yet it's the careful steps you take today that ensure a successful journey.

Key Dates for Pisces

SUPER NOVA DAYS
Nov. 7 - 10: Hold Your Ground
A slippery opposition between dynamic Mars and delusional Neptune might lead you astray on Nov. 7. Don't exhaust yourself in a futile battle or lose yourself in someone else's struggle; it's possible to express compassion and follow your intuition without sacrificing yourself. You must simplify matters with basic facts and a down-to-earth conversation with the easygoing Taurus Full Moon on Nov. 10. Taking small but productive steps can calm your worries about the future. Forceful Mars enters skillful Virgo and your 7th House of Partners, poking you with criticism or encouraging you to sharpen your skills and tighten up your act. If the advice you receive is constructive, accept it graciously; if it's negative, let it go.

Nov. 27: Pleasure Principle
You're in for a delightful time as beguiling Venus creates a harmonious trine with generous Jupiter. Going on an outing with a group of people or a reliable friend is not only fun but also gives you a chance to demonstrate your affection. Savoring pleasurable experiences will make them even sweeter and the memories last longer.
