Today's Horoscope This week This month
Taurus horoscope for November 2023
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of November in your relationship sector, the solar spotlight is always on your relationships at this time of year. However, this year you have not only had a head start but a lot more resources than is normally the case. It was in July that the South Node left your relationship sector and the North Node left Taurus, ending an 18 month policing of a balance between your personal and relationship needs. While it wasn't until last month that the first planet this year reached your relationship sector, by then you already had a sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Meanwhile, it was a full month before the Sun returned that the dwarf planet Ceres arrived to begin her deep dive into your relationship needs and priorities. By the time the Sun returned Mars had returned for his first visit in two years while Mercury, the planet of communication had returned for his annual visit. This is where things stand as you move into the new month. While Mercury will leave on 10th November, by the time the Sun leaves on 23rd November, Mars on 24th November and Ceres on 25th November they will be a tight unit.
It is then that they will follow Mercury into your financial sector, where by then you will have had time to work with his smart head for money to get your head in the game and to think on your feet. Normally here for just two weeks, Mercury's retrograde turn next month will see him dip into and out of your financial sector until eventually leaving in January. This is giving you everything needed to bring this financial year home and start lining up for the next. Meanwhile, Venus is doing her own thing, though in a way that will see her and where your heart is aligned shift focus. Until leaving a playful and creative part of your chart on 8th November Venus is more focused on matters of the heart, until she returns to your work sector to bring things home and to focus on the money.
Love & RomanceBecause the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of November in your relationship sector, the spotlight is always on your relationships at this time of year. However, rarely with the number of resources that you have this time or with the month also getting off to a romantically charged start. Held back by a retrograde phase Venus, the planet of love was late to return to your romantic sector this year so is also late to leave and this is helping extend a period of planetary activity that began with Mars' return in early July. This was Mars' first visit in two years and while he left at the end of August, what he initially began fighting for lives on.
Venus is still in your romantic sector as you move into the new month, but she is not on her own. Venus was joined by the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment shortly after she returned last month, something that is giving you the resolve to follow your heart and keep the romantic flame burning. Venus will leave on 8th November, but a retrograde turn early next year will keep Juno here until August 2024, 13 months after Mars initially returned to kick things off. The Moon will move through from 7th November to 9th November, with romantically charged lunar vibes making the planet of love's final hours some of the best.
Meanwhile, the month only begins with the Sun in your relationship sector but Mars, Mercury and the dwarf planet Ceres, all contributing something different. The more urgent focus is on Mercury, with the planet of communication the first to leave on 10th November. It is two days later that the Moon will join the other three, moving through from 12th November, with a New Moon on 13th November an opportunity for new beginnings. With the Sun leaving on 23rd November, Mars on 24th November and Ceres on 25th November this will leave your relationship sector empty until Venus returns early next month, though with a good sense by then of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Business & CareerWhen the Sun, Mercury and Mars left your work sector last month they left it empty and often at this time of year this is when all planetary activity on the job front for the year would come to an end and that is exactly what happened. Except unlike most years, this wasn't the end of the story, with one more chapter that hasn't been written yet before this professional year is over. Even if this was the end of all planetary activity for the year, with Mars having just made his first visit in two years, this has energised things on the job front and fired things up enough that it would be easy to keep the momentum going.
However, held back by a retrograde phase the one planet yet to return is Venus and as the last planet to arrive and the last to leave she will be charged with bringing things home. Venus will return on 8th November to find that most of the heavy lifting has already been done, things have been set in motion and all she has to do is use the laws of attraction to exploit the full potential. It is the Moon's return from 9th November to 12th November that will see your instincts kick in during her first full day and as Venus begins her mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction, this will ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged from the start.
Meanwhile, there is likely to be a general sense of professional confidence and especially confidence in the future that you might find hard to put your finger on. This is more something that your sixth sense is picking up on but when the Moon moves through your career sector from 19th November to 21st November you will get a better read on this. That something was Pluto's direct turn last month, which means that after retrograding back out of your career sector in June he is on his way back. While the planet of change and revolution won't return until January, your sixth sense is already sensing that 2024 is going to be a blockbuster professional year and especially with your biggest year for income growth and expansion beginning in May.
MoneyTo start with it is business as usual, which means no planetary activity in either of your two money houses, as has been the case for months now. There has been no planetary activity in your income sector since the last planet left at the end of May, but after 10 months of planetary activity, this gave you plenty of momentum, resources and untapped income potential that you can continue to draw on. For now, and until Jupiter returns in May to begin your most potentially lucrative year in over a decade, the Moon's monthly visits are enough to keep things on track. It is on the other side of the financial fence, where the focus is on your financial situation and money matters that there has so far been no planetary activity this year.
Here the Moon's monthly visits have been everything, but that is about to change, with Mercury's return on 10th November kicking off the first planetary activity of the year on the side of the financial fence where it is more about what you do with and how you manage the money you have. Mercury will return on 10th November for what is normally a 14 to 15 day chance to work with his smart head for money to get your head in the game and to think on your feet. Returning 13 days ahead of the Sun, Mercury should be packing up just as the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters on 23rd November.
Instead, Mercury will not only still be here but will be slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next month that will see him end 2023 and begin 2024 here. The Sun will always turn the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters at the same time each year but this time he won't be alone and instead will bring Mars and the dwarf planet Ceres with him. Mars to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit and Ceres to begin her first deep dive into your financial needs and priorities in four years. This will happen fairly quickly, with the Sun returning on 23rd November, Mars on 24th November and Ceres on 25th November. It is just days later that a Full Moon in your income sector on 27th November will energise both sides of the financial fence.
