than the sign you’re accustomed to. Sidereal astrology is different from traditional tropical astrology, so your regular sun and rising signs may not apply in a sidereal reading or forecast.

November is a busy month for little messenger Mercury, affecting readers of all signs. Early on, Mercury throws politesse to the winds and heads out of bounds for much of the month. Already in the shadow of his retrograde, he’ll reverse course later on in the month for his final retrograde this year before encountering the sun and Jupiter near month’s end.
Out of bounds planets don’t play by the commonly accepted rules of society, rather, they are considered to “walk to the beat of their own drum”. They are the planetary mavericks: eccentric, unconventional, and unorthodox, for better or for worse. They are “beyond the pale” so to speak.
During these weeks in November, through the 20th, we are inclined to innovative thinking in any field requiring a skill for analysis, problem solving, or communication. On the flip side, it’s easy to become obsessed with stories, whether in literature, film, or even the stories we tell about our own lives. We are prone to misconstruing words and blowing things out of proportion.
Mars finally makes his move into Aquarius on November 7th, the same day as the new moon in sidereal Libra. He’ll spend the coming six and 1/2 weeks in the sign of ingenuity, insight, and rebelliousness, driving those with Aries sun or Aries ascendant to more impulsiveness than usual.
Venus stations direct on the 16th, the same day Mercury begins his third and final retrograde of the year. In Scorpio, Mercury retrograde could bring secrets to light and reveal occult or hidden things, and signals a time for reviewing research findings or the results of investigations.
Financial dealing or debts could come into the open, and if the opportunity arises to review your financial picture as it relates to debts, taxes and investments, take it. Just don’t take on any new debts or make any new or major investments, or file new estate paperwork until after Mercury resumes direct motion.

The 26th is a very lucky day for just about everyone, but most especially for Leo babies--if you have Leo sun or rising you may want to mark November 26th with a gold star.
Egos could run high this day though, creating the potential for conflict when we identify too closely with our ideas and opinions. Don’t allow yourself to be provoked if someone challenges your worldview. Instead, try to consider things from their perspective.
The very next day is a bonus lucky day for readers with Gemini or Virgo sun or rising sign, when Jupiter reconnects with Mercury in retrograde. You’ll have one more of these special days after Mercury resumes direct motion in December, and you may notice a common theme connects all three days if you’re directly affected.
There’s a chance arguments or disagreements could develop; channel this energy constructively through competitive sports or high energy activities like boxing.
Thankfully, Jupiter’s influence offers a measure of protection from Mar’s challenge to Mercury that same day, suggesting things are likely to work out in the end. Whatever benefits Jupiter brings may require initiative or courage to unlock.
All readers will want to check their sidereal natal charts for planets or points at either 9 or 10 degrees of Scorpio, where Jupiter meets up with the sun and Mercury over those two special days in late November.
