Check out what’s going on for your star sign in November, from Miss FQ’s spiritual guru One Grounded Angel.

First things first you’re the realest… or are you? This month the stars are pushing you to be honest. Pretending to be something you’re not or lying to someone to keep them happy (uh-oh) won’t go well, especially around November 4. As well as keeping it real with others, make sure you’re being truly honest with yourself – call yourself out on any self-delusion, from the lowkey (‘Diet Coke is good for me!’) through to the Ron Burgundy (‘I’m God’s gift!’) level of fantasy.
In relationships, expect a rebrand (kinda). For the next 12 months, Jupiter, the planet of growth, is hanging out with Scorpio, the sign of transformation, soulmates and death (yikes!), in your eighth house, which just so happens to be ruled by Scorpio – so this energy is hella intense. It’s *very* likely a relationship or friendship will come to an end (that’s the death thing) to make way for something better – so this is actually good, in the long run. Your relationship could go deep (think: engagement rings, baby blankets and – since Scorpio also rules joint assets – auctions)… or it could end. Remember, after endings come new beginnings – without being dumped, Adele wouldn’t have two Grammy-winning albums, a happy marriage and a baby. Kia kaha, Aries!

It’s sunshine and unicorns for you this month, Taurus, with the drama of the past year finally settling down. Your challenge is to remember how #blessed you are right now, instead of stressing about stuff that doesn’t matter or is totally out of your hands. Your chances of falling in love are super-strong, since the planet of love, Venus, is in your zone of commitment from November 7 to December 1 – Taureans already coupled-up will find themselves in a relationship sweet-spot during this time (top tip: maximise this with romantic dates that would put The Bachelor to shame). If you’re single and so. freakin’. over. it… know that the Universe gives you more of what you focus on, so being in Poor Me mode will only super-size your complaints order (soz). Instead, focus on making yourself happy and you’ll attract someone who makes you even happier.
Things get a wee bit weird around November 11, when a strong partnership forms between your eighth house (the zone of intuition) and your twelfth house (all about spiritual matters). You could experience WTF moments with unexplained synchronicities and perhaps even signs from someone who has passed on (spooky!).
(May 21-June 21)
You’ve probably watched enough episodes of The Block to know that if a foundation is bad, the whole house will be a major fail. This month, the planets want you to do something no easily distracted Gemini will wanna do (soz): go back to basics, for better adulting. Yes it’s a bit of a yawnfest, but if you’ve ever been in a relationship that imploded because you missed the warning signs, you’ll know a good beginning = a happy ending (err, in a manner of speaking). Do your closest relationships (ie bae, your ride-or-die, etc) have a good foundation of honesty, solid communication and respect? Does your job honour your values (eg you feel appreciated, you’re proud to work there…)? FWIW you might not be where you want to be yet, but as long as you’re on track, that’s enough.
This is a good month for clearing out things that no longer “bring you joy” as your crazy boho aunty would say. Going through your house and chucking out old mags, lunch containers with no lids and ‘what the hell I was thinking?’ clothes will lighten an emotional load you didn’t know you were carrying (weird how that happens, right?).
(June 22-July 22)
Emoji: Jazz handsIf you’ve got something to share with the world – maybe a story, a musical talent or a blog – the planets are here to help you get recognised and earn some serious exposure (in a non-naked sort of way). Until next November, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, is hanging out in your fifth house, the place of creativity and self-expression (think of it as the ‘look at moi’ energy). If you think you’re ‘so not creative’, this planetary alignment may help you uncover an artistic spirit you didn’t know you had. Since Jupiter has a worldly vibe, travel and international relations are also on the radar (BTW that could mean hooking up with someone who has a different accent – especially around November 13).
Things could turn to custard (temporarily) around November 4, when Venus, the planet of love, starts a fight with Uranus, the planet of rebellion and upheaval. There could be changes – particularly in romance – that put you in a spin and leave you e-mo-tion-al. The best way to get through the uncertainty is by taking things one step at a time. Freaking out about the future is the worst thing you could do. Britney got through 2007, and you’ll get through this.

You know how Meredith Grey creates extra drama in her life by overthinking everything? Yeah, don’t do that. There’s a high chance that all the crap you’re freaking out about is all in your head. This month the best thing Leos can do is nothing – not literally, just *mentally*. Got the opportunity to take or plan an *actual* holiday? Do it! If not, taking a break from all your problems will help you see your emotions and thoughts from a different perspective, instead of getting bogged down like a Pukeko in a swamp.
This is particularly relevant in romance. If you’re constantly fighting with bae, think about what they’re thinking and feeling instead of stubbornly holding onto The Truth According To You… they probably have NFI why you’re upset. If a maybe-hopefully hook-up has gone cold on Snapchat, don’t keep Snapping them like a desperado. If you’re single and thirsty, try to be OK with flying solo… yes it sounds a wee bit lame, but despite what those fairytales told you, being single – and not having to deal with someone else’s shit! – is actually totally fine. (Bonus: finding love works best when you aren’t looking anyway.)

When it comes to speaking out, are you an oversharing Lena Dunham or more of a Beyonce, who famously avoids interviews? Get set to suddenly be waaaay more vocal. Jupiter, the planet of growth, is lighting up your third house, the place of communication, until late 2018, making you someone with A Lot To Say (or write; this planetary transit also favours the written word). Maybe you want to give style advice on YouTube. Maybe you want to start a podcast taking down the patriarchy. Whatever the message you want to share with the world, this is your time to shine.
On a lower level, you might find it’s easier to say what you want to say to those around you, with fewer awks miscommunications. From November 7 until the start of December, Venus, the planet of love, joins Jupiter in your third house, making it less terrifying to say the L word to a special someone, share your true feelings or get seriously flirty in online chats. Speak now*, or forever hold your peace (well, maybe not ~forever~…). *BTW make sure you’re speaking from the heart and not from a place of insecurity or jealousy (you have been warned).
(September 23-October 23)
Emoji: FlameYour relationships could get a shake-shake-shake up this month, especially around November 11 when Saturn, the planet of conformity, and Uranus, the planet of rebellion, do a weird dance in your relationships house. Couples could redefine the rules of their relationship (hall pass? elopement?), and squads could drift as Librans realise they’re just not feeling like they belong in that group anymore. Speaking of belonging, some Librans could go through an identity crisis, struggling to find their place in the world. Your intuition is like your internal Google Maps – as long as you’re honouring what is true for you, you’ll find your way through. Don’t try to fit in with any Plastics – your high school days are gone-burger, and anyway, it’s not your job to convince others to like you (unless you’re a politician, obvs).
In the werk zone, you’ve got motivation and ideas streaming into your sign like a continuous Red Bull tap, and if you make the most of this, you’ll be so fiyah. Bonus: from November 22, when Neptune, the planet that tends to cause confusion and discouragement, finishes a retrograde in your sixth house, the place of employment. You’ll find it easier to get organised at work and get shit done. Yasss!

Remember when you were learning to drive, and your dad hovered his hand nervously over the handbrake? That kind of attempt to control a situation or a person’s behaviour – which TBH is fairly typical of Scorpios – is not going to fly this month. Any attempts to micromanage will go badly for you, particularly in the love department. If you’re trying to force a relationship that isn’t evolving naturally, or hold onto something that has gone off like camembert left in the sun, the planets will give you a wake-up call, especially around November 4. Same deal with pressuring friends to do what you think they should do. Let go of any perfectionism – especially when it comes to your body and your Instagram feed – and focus on being happy with how things are RN. Or (at the risk of sounding like a lame old-school motivational poster), go with the flow.
November 18 is peak Scorpio. That’s the new moon in your sign – prime time for setting new goals for the next six months. Jupiter, the planet of good luck, is in your sign for the next 12 months, so your odds of success are higher than Snoop Dogg.

Sagittarius, you’ve got the love (apologies to Florence and the Machine for the shameless lyrics theft). Around November 13, Venus (the planet of love) and Jupiter (the planet of expansion) are hooking up in your 12th house, the place of fantasy and compassion. You’ll be oozing love for humanity like a drunk yoga teacher (OK, bad example, but you get what I mean). This is the perfect time to celebrate all the good things and the good people, in your life – maybe by organising cocktails and a comedy night with your squad, splurging on a hot new outfit that hugs your body in all the right places or booking a dirty weekend with bae. It’s not, however, the moment for feeling disappointed or full of regret about the past – think: #soblessed.
Speaking of the 12th house… the November 18 full moon hits that same zone, putting the focus on your perspective. If you have been blaming others for your problems or deluding yourself about your current sitch, you’ll be pushed to wake up and smell the turmeric latte. Only when you get real about how things *really* are – and how you’ve contributed to that state of play – can you change them.
(December 22-January 19)
Emoji: Pondering faceHere’s the thing about Capricorns: they’re so busy running around getting shit done that they forget to look at the bigger picture. This month, the planets are pushing you to ask some Very Big Questions about yourself in relation to the whole freakin’ Universe (NBD, then). Are you truly contented in your daily life or are you too busy worrying about the future to really appreciate how good you’ve got it? Do you feel like you’re giving back to others enough? Do you know what the hell you’re doing and where you’re going? Big questions, yes, but think of this like makeup – if you don’t nail the base (ie primer and foundation), everything else will be slightly off.
On top of all that deeeeep stuff, there’s also a mood of harmony in relationships this month. You might find yourself clicking with a rando or an existing contact, particularly from November 13 to 15. And yes, romance is definitely on the cards. In fact, November 13 could be the luckiest day of the year for love-thirsty singles, since Venus, the planet of love (obvs), and Jupiter, the planet of fortune, are forming a happy partnership (helloooo hotties!).
(January 20-February 18)
Tell me what you want, what you really really want… then tell me why you don’t have it yet. This month the planets are calling out Aquarians on any mind games or victim attitude. Are you blaming other people for the dramas that you are causing? Or worse, is self-criticism stopping you from shining bright like a diamond? Saturn, the planet which represents the way you see the world, is in your 11th house, the zone of your objectives in life. In short: if things aren’t working out for you, maybe you’ve accidentally caused that. Not trying to make you feel crappy – it’s about empowering you to back yourself, instead of constantly casting yourself as a loser (tip: we sometimes make excuses not to try something new, trying to protect ourselves… soooo not helpful).
The 11th house is also about your connections with other people – which has been a recurring theme for you lately (#sorrynotsorry). As well as making sure you surround yourself with people who lift you up, not bring you down (#squadgoals), notice whether your self-esteem impacts on those around you. Often the way we treat others is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves (eg jealousy and judgement – ugh).
(February 19-March 20)

As anyone who’s been trolled knows, words can be very hurtful (sad face). This month, be careful how you use your words IRL. There’s a good chance you could say something you *really* regret, especially around November 4 and 19, when hidden jealousies or a tendency to compete with others could have you spewing toxic words that do more damage to your environment than a farting cow. This could be a massive problem for couples with underlying trust issues or financial dramas (ugh). Don’t let anger drive you into dragon mode – Daenerys can’t help you with that.
You may also get down with your spiritual side this month (nope, not talking about the sort of spirits you knocked back last weekend). Jupiter, the planet of growth, is in your ninth house, the zone of philosophy and spirituality, so you could deep-dive into examining The Big Picture. Whether you end up downloading a meditation app or joining a cult (JK!), remember the aim of any legit spiritual practice is to make you calmer, more connected to your fellow humans and trusting that the Universe totally has your back. Remember, too, not to get all preachy about it, which is about as welcome as an Instagram outage.
