November is off to a busy start, with Venus connecting with Saturn, and the Sun meeting with Neptune on November 3, and Venus opposing Uranus. In addition, there will be a full moon in Taurus on November 3 (or 4th if you're on the East Coast). This is a lot of information to take in, but if anyone is good at breaking down ideas, it's you, Virgo!

Venus and Saturn's connection is going to be helpful around issues concerning your living situation and your finances. The Sun and Neptune's connection will create a dreamy vibe in your relationships and bring an inspiring conversation.

But some unexpected issues around shared resources—like money, or potentially your sex life—will pop up because of Venus's opposition to Uranus. Even though you are a very flexible person, Virgo, you do have a reputation for being a control freak. It's crucial at this time that you let go of your ideas of how things should be. Let go of your concept of "perfect," and just sit with the reality of the situation.

The full moon in Taurus is going to be emotional and exhausting. You'll find that your usually very sharp mind is feeling weary. However, some big philosophical breakthroughs are going to take place, and you will receive some information that will alter the way that you think and talk about things. It's easy for you to get lost in the details, but you can work with this full moon's energy more effectively by focusing on the big picture at this time.

Your ruling planet, Mercury, enters Sagittarius on November 5. Over the next few weeks, conversations concerning your home, your family, or your roommates will come to the fore. These themes will continue to be big as the sun enters Sagittarius on November 21. On an emotional level, this is an important time to reflect on what safety and security means to you and to get clear on your boundaries. Having space and freedom at home is very important to you. Are you getting this?

Venus enters Scorpio on November 7, bringing some love letters your way. Sweet Venus and sexy Scorpio will find you discussing some very deep feelings and maybe even sharing some secrets. You're a fantastic secret keeper, Virgo, and this is one of the many reasons why your friends love you. Good news arrives on November 13 when Venus meets lucky planet Jupiter.

Jupiter is the planet of good luck, and Venus rules love, money, and beauty. This is certainly a luxurious combination of energies; however, it can also be a little overindulgent, so don't gossip too much! The new moon in Scorpio arrives on November 18, which is another important day for communication this month. This date will also be great for connecting with your neighborhood and your siblings. Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth, and you're going to feel a major rejuvenation mentally at this time.

Saturn makes a harmonious connection with Uranus on November 11. Saturn is the planet of structure, but Uranus is the planet of rebellion. These are two very different energies, but when they work well together, the universe supports us in taking big risks. You'll find yourself taking a big risk this month around an emotionally charged situation. You'll let go of patterns that no longer serve you, and you'll open yourself up to new ways of being.

Mercury clashes with Neptune on November 13, which will be one of the more confusing days of the month for you. Mercury is the planet of the mind, and Neptune rules fantasy and fog. When these two planets clash, it's hard to make sense of anything. Today is a day for writing poetry, not paperwork. If you need to have an important conversation with a partner, this is not the day.

The Sun enters Sagittarius on November 21, officially kicking of Sagittarius season and finding you in a nostalgic mood, eager to connect with your family, your past, and even your ancestors. This is a great time to energetically cleanse your home, perhaps by casting a spell or more literally throwing out your trash. (They say that Virgos are neat freaks, but whoever "they" are, they've clearly never been to a Virgo's home.)

The end of the month is busy for your ruling planet, Mercury, which will make a harmonious connections with Uranus on November 25 and Saturn on November 27 (or 28th if you're on the East Coast). Mercury's connection to Uranus will bring some major eureka moments, and it will be especially helpful in terms of solving issues at work, with your schedule, or with getting your own life organized. You'll find yourself in a serious and focused mood when Mercury meets with Saturn. Issues concerning home and family are going to come to the fore. Good luck this month, Virgo; see you in December!
