The highly auspicious, nine day, biannual period of the 'Navratras' ended on October 29. November is the month of 'Diwali', also known as 'Deepavali', which is one of the most significant and widely celebrated festivals in Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism. Often referred to as the "Festival of Lights", this year the main 'Diwali' day falls on Sunday, November 12. It is a day that symbolises the victory of light over darkness and good over evil. The festival is typically observed across two days, the 'Main' and the 'Pre' celebratory day, referred to as, 'Chhoti Diwali'. The main 'Diwali' day is marked by lighting oil lamps or 'Diyas', decorating homes with colourful 'Rangoli' (patterns) designs, the exchanging of gifts and traditional festive delicacies, particularly sweet meats and the bursting of fireworks.
Highlights for Your Sign in November
This is a brief explanation of the astrological influences on each zodiac sign this month and a supplement to your full predictions at 'Monthly Horoscopes'.
Aries ♈ (March 21 - April 19): The North Lunar Node, the malefic 'Rahu' and a retrograde Jupiter continue to occupy Aries. Both planets are weak and will therefore not have a significant influence on this sign. On the other hand, during the beginning of the month, four planets will aspect Aries, from their position in Pisces. These planets are Mercury, Mars, the Sun and 'Ketu'. These planets have a contradictory influence and will cause mixed fortunes for Ariens. This influence will gradually reduce as the month progresses. By November 28, 'Rahu' will exit Aries and there will then be a perceivable favourable change in fortunes.
Taurus ♉ (April 20 - May 20): The Moon will be placed in this sign, both at the very beginning and at the end of the month and emotions will be heightened during these periods. Venus will cross from Leo to Virgo and end in Libra, during the course of November. This will have a favourable influence on Taurus. Taureans will be motivated and confident about their plans, on which they will pay careful attention towards mid-November and this will bring rewards by the end of the month.
Gemini ♊ (May 21 - June 20): There are no direct influences on Gemini at the beginning of the month. Mercury will remain combusted in the friendly sign of Libra and this will bring a favourable balance to the lives of Geminis till mid-November. Mercury will then enter Scorpio leading to frustration. The Moon will be debilitated in Gemini by the end of November. Members of this sign will be emotionally restless, due to frequently changing thoughts, plans and moods.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Cancer is not under any particular planetary influence at the moment. There will be several ups and downs and mood changes for Cancerians in November, as the Moon passes from Taurus across all the zodiacs, to end in Gemini. The Moon will be debilitated in Pisces around the middle of the month. Cancerians will experience heightened emotions and low self-confidence due to this. The Moon will be debilitated in Gemini by the end of November. There will be no major change in the emotional state of Cancerians with this change in planetary alignment and the mood of most Cancerians will oscillate.
Leo ♌ (July 23 - August 22): Due to the influence of Venus and as the Sun will be placed in Libra, Leos will use their various talents innovativley. The beginning of the month will be a time of recreation and entertainment. Saturn will aspect this sign by mid-November and the focus will now be on working towards achieving results in these creative plans. But, there will be a balance between work and play. The Sun enters Scorpio by the end of the month and members of this sign will be high on confidence and keen to put more plans into action.
Virgo ♍ (August 23 - September 22): There will be no significant planetary influence on Virgo at the beginning of the month and Mercury will be combusted. There will be a lack of clarity and progress in on-going plans and several ups and downs in your fortunes. Venus will occupy this sign by mid-November and Mercury will be stronger, but debilitated. This will lead to innovative plans, but will not result in any progress or successful results. This will also be a period of recreation and socialising. The malefic 'Ketu' will also occupy this sign by the end of the month, causing unexpected changes and minor worries.
Libra ♎ (September 23 - October 22): The malefic 'Ketu' will occupy Libra along with Mercury, Mars and the Sun, during the beginning of the month. This will result in stress, worry and mixed fortunes. By mid-November Mars, the Sun and 'Ketu' will remain in this sign. The Sun and 'Ketu' will be in conflict, hence ups and downs, struggles and anxiety will persist. There will be sudden and unexpected complications during this period. These planets will exit Libra by the end of the month and there will then be no significant planetary influence. As Venus will be in Virgo, members of this sign will look for practical solutions to their current problems.
Scorpio ♏ (October 23 - November 21): There will be no direct planetary influences on this sign at the beginning of November and Mars will be combusted in Libra. This will be a frustrating period of obstacle and slow progress. By mid-November, Mercury and the Moon will occupy this sign. Most Scorpios will be distracted from their immediate objectives, due to frequently changing thoughts and emotions. This situation will change radically by the end of the month, as the Sun and Mars will occupy Scorpio. Scorpios will be full of confidence, but impatience will lead to complications.
Sagittarius ♐ (November 22 - December 21): A Gemini-Moon will aspect Sagittarius during the beginning of the month. Sagittarians will be emotionally sensitive due to the current lack of progress in their lives and will be unable to focus on pragmatic problem solving. The Moon will be debilitated in this sign by mid-November, due to which this situation will result in a lack of confidence to meet current challenges. Mercury will be debilitated in this sign by the end of the month causing an increase in inquisitiveness and optimism for the future.
Capricorn ♑ (December 22 - January 19): Saturn is in-retrograde in this sign, resulting in a feeling of stagnancy and struggle. A direct Saturn will be gaining in strength, in
Aquarius by mid-November. Your efforts will now gradually, but progressively begin to bring rewards.
Aquarius ♒ (January 20 - February 18): There will be no direct influences on Aquarius during the beginning of the month. As Saturn is in-retrograde, there have been struggles and a lack of progress for some time. This may have resulted in a cynical, pessimistic outlook. A direct Saturn will be gaining in strength, in this sign by mid-November. Your efforts will now gradually, but progressively begin to bring rewards. Your frame of mind will be more positive and you will be determined to achieve your goals.
Pisces ♓ (February 19 - March 20): Jupiter is presently in-retrograde and as there will be no major planetary influences on Pisces during the beginning of the month, this will remain a somewhat uneventful, stagnant period for this zodiac sign. Mid-November will be a relatively relaxed period and there will be thoughts of finding more practical solutions to on-going problems. The malefic 'Rahu' will occupy Pisces and 'Ketu' and Venus will aspect this sign by the end of November. There will be obstacles in on-going plans, causing an increase in stress and uncertainty. Most Pisceans will be in the mood to relax and enjoy some stress-busting activities.
