The big news in November is the Supermoon on the 14th and the alignment between the Moon's Nodes and Neptune. Prepare to let your inner dreamer out; to be inspired in many different ways and to leave your comfort zone in the process!

November’s alignments will feel delicious, as they will be inspiring and could be extremely moving, as long as you keep your feet on the ground, avoid escapism and wildly high expectations. Luckily you should manage to juggle your ideals with practicalities, as Venus (from November 12th onwards) and Pluto in Capricorn will provide a stabilising effect.

While this month is ideal to focus on inspiration and ideals, trust your intuition, believe in yourself, and take practical steps to see your ideas take shape in reality. This phase may bring out religious, political or spiritual fervour in general, so ensure you maintain perspective in the here and now, too.

Luckily, the Supermoon on November 14th will be in Taurus, which will also be a stabilising factor. See this Supermoon as an anchor in your progress; it’s an excellent time to find ways to be practical and grounded. However, this Supermoon is at a challenging angle to Uranus, which is the planet astrologers associate with the unexpected, so if you do experience out-of-the-ordinary events mid-November, these can potentially break you out of a rut, and lead to more stability over time. There may be links to events that occurred around the Supermoon mid-October, and you will have the benefit of hindsight for this reason.

According to NASA, this is the closest Full Moon to Earth in the 21st century, and the closest Supermoon until 2034.* So this Supermoon is one to relish and enjoy, and let’s hope for clear skies. A Supermoon in Taurus will certainly stimulate your predilection for all things self-indulgent and luxurious, especially for Taureans and Scorpios, so remember to avoid over-spending and over-indulgence, unless you know you can replenish both your energy and money easily.

So this month can truly take you further along your path towards a life you desire. Your inner dreamer will strive to be heard, and your dreams will wish to be acted upon. But there is one proviso: there may be a tendency to resume a bad habit because of a strong draw to the past; to an ex, or to a circumstance you feel you already grew out of.
You will get the chance to re-assess your beliefs and ideals; to confirm or reject the decisions you’ve already made, especially around November 19th-20th and in the lead-up to Sagittarian New Moon on the 29th which promises adventure and progress as we head into December.
