They say we never look for conflict, but conflict always manages to find us. You've known this your entire life, Aries, and in November it's going to find you in nearly every area of your life. Fear not, though, because the stakes of these conflicts are not always Earth-shaking. In fact, they're all going to leave you walking away wiser than before. But you should still have your shield up and sword at hand. Don't go looking for fights. You've got better uses for your energy than that. But trust us, fights will find you.
One of the bigger celestial synchronizations this year has been Jupiter and Neptune as they moved together across the cosmos. In January and June of this year they aligned perfectly, so guess when the next one is? Right in the beginning of the month. Expect this to bring with it all sorts of anger and general crankiness from the people around you. Don't take it personally: our entire planet will be bathed in a wave of negative emotions that they don't understand. You'll feel it as well, but being the intuitive Aries that you are, you won't let it run your life. Just don't let other people's anger run yours, either. Work is going to be a bit of a mindfield until the last week of the month or so. Keep your head.
All that negativity in the world is going to have a ripple effect across other areas in your life. Angry people tend to make irrational decisions, and one of the worst areas to be irrational in your thinking is with money. Keep a close eye on your finances from the beginning of the month until around the 9th or so. This is the prime time for bad decisions and risky speculation. From the 10th to the 19th, you're in a good position to reap the benefits from other people's financial errors. You're not going to be an opportunist, but a shrewd investor. If you keep your eyes open, you'll have some fantastic opportunities coming your way, although they might not bear fruit until early next year.
Relationships have been called "The Great Indoor Fight" and November will prove that to very much be the case. It's not going to be non-stop yelling and door slamming, but certain things will be on edge. Ironically, it's the planets Mars and Venus that will be most prominent for you this month, that great cosmic couple the encapsulates the tensions any relationship feels. If you're currently in a relationship, err on the side of caution this month and pick your battles carefully (by which we mean: give in a little bit). The period from the 14th to the 20th is prime time for small fights quickly turning into deal-breaker endings. Keep cool during this time and remember to not sweat the small things (and they're all small things). Look for some peace around the 28th when everyone calms down considerably. It might not be a bad time to plan a getaway. If you're not currently in a relationship but looking for one, remember that this is the month where people might have an emotional full plate. If you're expecting a callback, a call in the first place, or even someone to smile at you at the bar, none of these may happen for reasons that have nothing to do with you. You're resilient, Aries. Move on and trust the right people to find you when they're ready.
Tension and repressed emotions have been found to cause more physical health problems than the usual dangers like smoking. That's a good indication that it's worth letting go of your anger however you see fit. The world is going to be smoldering a bit this month, but you'll be a bit more fortunate. You've got a rational eye on your emotions and don't let them lead you. This is a very good thing, especially when anger and irritation will hit its peak around the 23rd. Hang in there and practice some self-care. The week of the 20th to the 25th would be a good time to do a staycation, or at least minimize your going out time. Ride out the storm with comfort food and Netflix.
November will test your mettle a bit, but you're smart and strong enough to respond to it well. Shield up and sword in hand, Aries. And remember: the best warriors choose fighting as a last resort.
