Who’s on Team Taurus? This month, your closest ties take center stage as the Sun circulates through Scorpio until November 22, heating up your seventh house of one-on-one alliances.

From there, el Sol will move into Sagittarius and your intimate eighth house, giving you the urge to merge. Whether it’s business, romance or just a kindred-spirit type of connection, dynamic duos are definitely heating up now! The November 7 Scorpio new moon is an especially great time to make things official or at least explore a promising partnership.

This is all happening against a backdrop of wildly shifting cosmic action all month—so hang on tight, Taurus! Some planets are switching signs, others are ending or starting retrogrades…it’s a whole lot of change to take in, especially for a “fixed” sign like yours that needs a certain amount of security and consistency.

Strong emotions could erupt from the chaos—all the more reason to lean on your tried-and-true people to keep you anchored when the seas get choppy.

The first planet to make a major move is side-spinning Uranus, the planet of revolution and sudden events. Back on May 15, Uranus moved into YOUR sign for the first time since 1942, starting the first leg of a journey that will last until April 2026.

But on November 6, Uranus (which has been retrograde since August 7) will make one final dip back into Aries and your twelfth house of creativity, closure and healing. On March 6, 2019, Uranus will settle into Taurus for the long haul, but until then, you probably have some unfinished business to address.

With Uranus in this illusory zone, things may not be what they seem. It might feel like the needle has been abruptly yanked off the record that was finally playing a soundtrack you enjoyed. Don’t panic, Taurus. This is an opportunity to pause and evaluate progress, correcting course if need be.

Take inventory of the people around you: Are they reliable or random? If you have any forgiveness or closure work to do, Uranus in this final zodiac house will embolden your efforts. You could pick up a creative project or spiritual practice that’s gotten sidelined.

November 8 brings headline news as expansive Jupiter soars into Sagittarius until December 2, 2019, brightening your eighth house of merging, intimacy and shared finances. The eighth house is the zone of “we”—but not in a fluffy, quixotic way.

If the seventh house is the wedding and honeymoon, the eighth house is life after all the fanfare, where the rubber meets the road. It’s a realm that rules everything from wealth to spiritual transformation; from deep pockets to deep emotions!

Jupiter has been in Scorpio and your partnership sector since October 2017, and you’ve grown tremendously in your commitments. While not every story from this cycle will have a happy ending,

Jupiter’s mission is about personal growth—and it’s safe to say you’ve learned a LOT in the past 13 months.

With Jupiter in your eighth house of merging and permanent bonds, your ties could be tested to show which ones can truly go the distance.

Those that do could become ultra-official, as Jupiter in your eighth house brings stuff like engagements, pregnancies, breakups, real estate investments and joint business ventures. You’re either all the way in or all the way out.

With Jupiter in your eighth house of wealth and windfalls, this could be a big money year. Think beyond the paycheck since this is the realm of “other people’s money” and joint financial undertakings.

Some Bulls will pay off debt, buy or sell property or get funding for a business idea. Jupiter supersizes everything, so you’re just as likely to be hit with a large expense (such as a tax bill) as you are to be showered with a huge payout, perhaps from royalties, a commission or a settlement. Whatever the case, Jupiter is here to help you get smarter and savvier about your funds!

The eighth house is a private place, meaning you may spend considerable time behind the scenes for the rest of the year, tinkering with a business idea, doing “research and development” or being immersed in heavy-duty emotional processing—or any combination of the three!

If you’ve ever wanted to slip off to an ashram or a silent meditation retreat, globetrotting Jupiter could send you on an “Eat, Pray, Love”-style adventure.

But wisdom-seeking Jupiter will find equal satisfaction in a metaphysical bookstore or at a workshop led by a spiritual teacher. (Just watch that you don’t get dazzled by too many gurus under impressionable Jupiter’s spell!)

Perhaps your private time will be spent in the company of a sexy, scintillating soulmate—or with your longtime love—discovering new facets of each other.

You may need to emotionally support a close person through an intense time. Jupiter was last in Sagittarius from November 24, 2006, to December 18, 2007, so look back to that time for clues that might suggest recurring themes.

Midmonth, there’s a retrograde pas de deux as peacekeeper Venus (your ruling planet) ends a six-week retrograde on November 16, the exact same day that communicator Mercury starts a three-week turnabout. (Can we get a break down here, planets?!)

Since October 5, Venus has been retrograde, starting its backspin in Scorpio and your partnership house, then reversing into Libra and your sixth house of health and organization on October 31.

For the first half of November, you could be stressed from trying to keep all the moving parts of your life in order.

Friction could erupt with an employee or service provider, and your own self-critical streak could flare into body-image issues. (Be kind to yourself, Taurus—for everyone’s sake!) Venus retrograde can bring back ex-lovers or old relationship issues. You won’t be sad to see this cycle end on November 16!

But you’ll have to step into a whole new dance from November 16 to December 6, as Mercury—the overlord of communication, technology and travel—makes its last retrograde of the year. Mercury will reverse through Sagittarius for most of this backspin, which could cause miscommunications with intimate partners or around finances.

Strengthen your passwords, back up all important data and triple-check your statements for fraudulent or erroneous charges. Watch for old jealousy and trust issues to flare or for the return of an ex. (Just when you were breathing a sigh of relief that Venus retrograde was over!)

Money matters could kick into gear starting November 22, when the Sun starts its monthlong voyage through Sagittarius and your intense eighth house. Crawl into your cocoon for a bit. You could be lost in some intense thoughts and emotions, especially with Mercury retrograde here.

Make sure you have enough support, especially if you’re celebrating Thanksgiving and are surrounded by family. You could be easily triggered under these simmering skies. On the upside, Sagittarius season could mean quality time with one special person, perhaps spent between the sheets a little more, too!

On November 23, the year’s only Gemini full moon brightens your second house of work and finances. This lunar lift could serve up a promotion, payout or big opportunity.

You could also reach a turning point with a job, leaving one gig for a new one or putting feelers out for a new position. The second house rules daily routines, so if you want to kick a bad habit or change your ways, the moonbeams can certainly motivate.

Group dynamics that have been fuzzy could clear up starting November 24, when hazy Neptune completes a five-month retrograde that started on June 18.

If it’s been hard to get on the same page as your team, or friendships have been muddled by passive-aggressive breakdowns, you’ll be relieved to see compassion and clarity return.

But circle November 26 as one of the luckiest days this year, when the bold Sun and effusive Jupiter make their annual meetup. This time they’ll hold court in Sagittarius and your intimate eighth house, a day when you can be bold and authentic.

Whether you’re expressing feelings that you’ve been keeping inside, making a power move in business or following your white-hot intuition, you’re dialed into the divine today—so take a leap of faith!
