November is the time when autumn starts making its first appearance. Change is in the air and winter is breathing down our necks. Our minds go to who was in the past and what the future holds. That's especially significant to you, Libra, as this month you're really going to be wrestling with the stresses that come with being one person in private and another in person. "Wrestling" in this case meaning: you're going to have some opportunities to have the inside visible to the outside. These are truly opportunities and not problems, as they'll guide you, Libra, to some interesting future directions.
It's no coincidence that Mercury is in retrograde during this time. It starts on October 31st, going right through November. That is portentous for you, Libra. Look for the phases of the moon to guide you along your way to the 30th when your true self will burst forth like a butterfly emerging, except this time the cocoon is a pumpkin.
You've been leading a double life on the job for a while. Sure, everyone there knows you as one person, but you've known perfectly well that you're someone else on the inside. Maybe those two people aren't that different, or maybe they're like night and day. Whatever the case, there's going to be some light cracking through the wall between them, especially around the middle of the month. If there's a work party coming up, keep an eye on alcohol intake (yours and everyone else's). There could be some BIG revelations made if lips are a little too loose.
You're going to want to hold onto every penny for a little bit, Libra. We're not saying hide it in coffee cans in the backyard. But you do want to put off any major purchases until at least December. This would be a great month to join the gig economy in your off-hours and pick up some extra dollars. There's no disaster on the horizon or anything like that, but you're going to want to stay financially low through the month and prepare for what lies ahead. Again, nothing disastrous, but lots of uncertainty. The rest of the world might panic a little bit, maybe around the 18th. Keep your head and carry on.
It's the presence of Venus in your life during November that carries the most significance for you, Libra. You see, Venus is in direct opposition with Uranus around this time. As you know, Venus guides a number of forces related to love, romance, sex, and intimacy. This is where your Doctor Heckle and Mr. Hyde will most certainly be revealing themselves, or at least both causing some waves. There are qualities in you that have been there for ages that are dying to come out. Now is the perfect time for this to happen. You may announce yourself to someone you love (or people that you love). Do so. Everything will go the way it needs to and you need to reduce that stress inside you. Use Halloween as the time to dress up however you want, even if that means no costume at all.
Stress is the number one killer of adults in the United States. We don't want you to become a statistic, Libra. It's time to reduce that stress and take care of yourself. You're going to be particularly stressed around the 7th, so start your slow breathing exercises before then. After that, keep them going. You're going to need your strength all through the month, leading up to the 30th. Nothing wrong with gorging yourself then. Just make sure you follow a more balanced path in the days that follow. And if there are any moments when you can relax, take them. Even if it's just for fifteen minutes, find yourself a quiet space and just breathe for a bit.
There are two sides of you, Libra, and not just because you're a scale. You've been compartmentalizing your life for a very long time. Running two lives at once is exhausting for anyone. It's time you took a load off and merged them into one. Let that presence of Mercury be the wind beneath your wings as you gather the strength you need for the month.
