The Sun will roll through your 9th house this month activating your interest in places far away and sense of adventure. Travel yearnings abound and in instances where you can’t make a journey physically, stepping into being an “armchair warrior” will do, where watching, reading, or listening to others’ adventures can help fill that void for travel. Another fun way to bring the energy of different geographies into your own without leaving your town is to have culinary adventures with “theme” nights with cooking from different countries and cultures.
This time holds many great potentials for travel. To whet your travel appetite or have more support and resources for trips you would love to take, check out my new site AstrologyKissedTravelBliss.com
Issues and opportunities from the past will continue to be a theme. Things that come in this during this month still have more of a likelihood of being shorter-term, a segue to something else, or something new that needs ideas or something else from the past to work with. The latter part of December, all of January, and the first half or so of February opens up for more clarity on longer-term commitments and decisions.
The Suns movement through your 9th house can also activate spiritual studies or church-related activities. Inspiration and optimism often accompany this transit so have a notebook ready for the great ideas and insights that will roll through you. Opportunities to step up your participation in Spirit-driven activities will be more likely at this time. It is a great time to experiment, try things on, expand gently into things you have often considered in the past.
The desire to learn will likely be strong this month. Going on a ‘library bender’ is a fantastic way to use this energy. It favors breadth over depth so expect to be a little scattered with your interests. Courses of study could be a great use of the current and upcoming energy, especially programs with flexibility with your studies, as your ambitions will either wane or ramp up with the upcoming energies and having options with study time will be helpful. This could be an amazing time to commit to shorter-term (like 6-9 months or less )courses of study for hobby, self-development, or professional reasons.
Intuition will be strong and favoring it over logic may prove extra fruitful now.
The draw to teach may be very strong now and favors creation of curriculum or other offerings. If you feel ready to commit to a teaching project and you are feeling ambitious, then working on things in the backdrop the end of December is well-favored at this time. It is a good time for experimenting and trying different things on. If your teaching is already well-established then the retrograde energies may bring abundance from things done or started in the past. The house accentuated in your chart at this time is also the writing and publishing house. If you have been working on a book or wanting to start, this month holds great energy for moving forward with projects like this. As we get to the end of December, all of January, and the first half or so of February, NEW energies and opportunities come into focus. I love this time for publishing and other launches 🙂 November is the time to prepare for those launches.
When it comes to love, beauty, or money, Venus retrograde is still going until November 16 with the post-transit shadow period stretching until December 18. The odds are greater that people will be having money issues come up so that makes it more likely that they will not be seeing clearly when it comes to their money or item of value. You can benefit from this by getting a great deal just take caution to not be that person that sold something of value for far lower than it is worth out of desperation or desire to ‘move on from’ it.
If a decision has to be made about love or business opportunities that come in now or for arrangements and agreements that have to be made this month, try to leave as much flexibility in arrangements.
The retrograde energies can also bring in amazing things from past work so look for magical manifestations like this throughout this month.

The 9th house that is highlighted for you this month is all about asking bigger questions and finding transcendant solutions. Imagine looking at any issue in your life from the top of a mountain. The view from this perspective can often bring solutions not thought of before. Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve problems with the same line of thinking that created the problem.” Take this idea to anything that ails you at this time and watch the magic
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Aries Horoscope is more relevant for you.
