Mmm, November. Crunchy leaves. Hot spiced wine. Two eclipses. Eclipses are catalysts for change, so we can all watch for drama between our solar (outward, worldly) selves and our lunar (inner emotional) selves. Later this month, we have a lineup of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Pluto in Sagittarius on November 24th, which means growth and advancement opportunities will be showing up all over the place. Here's a run-down for each sign this month:

ARIES (March 20-April 19) you're getting a nod, or at least a sideways glance, from the goddess of sugar and money. But your ruling planet Mars is in the sign of Afternoon Naps and Water Ballet. So if you're feeling kind of not like your usual self, I wouldn't be surprised. You're also getting a sharp elbow between your fourth and fifth ribs from the taskmaster of dry dull boring things. Stay focused on the sugar-money stuff and you'll be just fine.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) you're seeing mirror images, either of yourself or your nemesis or both. It's your time of year to stand on the mountaintop and take in the beautiful view that is your life, before walking back down and figuring out how to make the view even MORE gorgeous. Whatever you want to be experiencing next spring, start slowly inventing it now. Draw a picture of it. Make it so detailed you can taste it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) by the end of this month, you're going to have a cheering audience begging for your autograph. Or you're going to be one of the most popular people at every party you show up for. Or, you're going to get a jealous boyfriend/girlfriend scenario (that hopefully never reaches "Fatal Attraction" extremes). Whatever it is, you're magnetic, you're on everyone's radar, so make it work for you, not against you.

CANCER (June21-July 21) the natural ruler of Capricorn, planet Saturn, is in your sign now and will be for quite a while. What feels like a punch in the gut is actually a tough-love invitation to improve yourself. Pick something off the floor and work on it, make it something you always imagined it could be. You're getting little shots of energy from the sidelines, so take that, and keep the focus. Focus. Focus.

LEO (July 22-August 22) the lion isn't the best friend of the scorpion. During these eclipses, you might be right in the middle of some weird situation and probably wonder how you got there. Well, no time for that, just get through it without too many power struggles. When the end of the month rolls in, a bold minty burst of flavor lifts you up and sails you into December. You will have the freshest breath of all.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) your head is expanding, your luck is expanding, possibly your ego and your butt are too. You might not have smooth sailing this month, but you probably have enough energy that you can slice any problem up into neat bite-size chunks. Sprinkle them with your favorite condiment and clean your plate. The reward? You'll get to coast through December.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) you are the sign the mystifies me the most. I cannot imagine what life is like as a Libra. You make it all look so easy. This month, all the planets have woven a lovely safety net beneath you, attractive yet practical. Anything you say can and will be used to improve your life. If your boss or some authority figure is trying to trip you up though, just ask for the day off and make an aromatherapy appointment. You will get away with it.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) you are flooding your world with transformation and rebirth. It's what you do best. The eclipses are in your sign, which means that if a big drama appears and you have a sneaking suspicion it's really all about you, you're not being self-absorbed. Nope. It really, really is all about you. Sometimes transformation and rebirth hurts. Do what you can to be a good midwife, and secretly enjoy the abundance of multi-colored spotlights on your spectacular body and mind.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 20) everyone loves you this month. You can put your foot in your mouth and you can moon your wife's parents and you can probably even make terrorist jokes. Everyone will think you're brilliant, downright charming. Don't waste it on stupid stuff though. Present an idea you've been craving to show the world; the universe suggests that if you do, it will probably be loved by others as much as it's loved by you. Express yourself.

CAPRICORN (December 21-January 19) promise me that on the night of November 26th, you will leave work far earlier than you usually do. You will put giant bunny slippers on your feet, open a pint of Godiva Chocolate Raspberry Truffle ice cream, and eat the entire thing with a plastic spoon. You will not even have a stomach ache afterwards. You will embrace the softer, silkier side of you. You will charm and dazzle at Thanksgiving parties. When people ask what you do for a living, you will reply, "I don't care right now. Ask me next month." Then you will demand a present.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17) the planet Neptune is in your sign and will be for a long time. This is a perfect time to either begin a drug addiction or end one; become a movie star or a screenwriter; go swimming; become an empath. It might be a little too far to walk barefoot to the pool this month. But if you maintain even a modicum of common sense and don't do anything too kooky, you'll find that not only will the pool come to you, but so will your third eye, your addiction therapist, and Hollywood. Just keep being visionary you.

PISCES (February 18-March 19) the get-out-of-my-way planet, Mars, has been hanging out in your sign for the longest time. If you are getting tired of your unstoppable energy, I would not be surprised. You're almost done with this cycle of aggressive determination, dear fish. But start wrapping it up, see yourself successfully crossing that finish line soon. Get the job completed while you still have Mars helping you out, because Mars always, always wins.
