November22 – December20
While you may not give it much thought, you stand to benefit a great deal from what could be termed ‘sheer good fortune’ this year. This comes from the fact that you’re ruled by Jupiter, which is the planet of exactly that – opportunity and good luck. Of course, it has as much to do with your fundamentally inquisitive nature and your instinct for generosity.
While others are focusing on how circumstances will benefit them, you’ll be asking questions and, equally, thinking of others. Your open-minded approach to life has benefitted you over the years. But now, bizarrely, you’ll find that the same attitude doesn’t work as well as it used to.
It isn’t that your luck has changed. Rather, it’s about your destiny taking you in a new direction, into new territory. It’s about you learning to work, live and think in an entirely new way.
While there might have been good opportunities during 2013, and many of these will continue during 2014, in every case events are encouraging you to look at life from a different angle and to work in a different way – and sometimes to work harder than you have ever before.
Again, this certainly is not to say that you don’t work hard. But you have

an instinct for cutting corners and when you can, you will. However, with your ruler, Jupiter, forming a series of powerful, if challenging, aspects to Pluto, the planet of truth, transformation and power, significant struggles in late January and April will encourage you to review your usual approach to challenges of this nature.
Of course, not everything will be difficult. On the contrary. Jupiter forms a series of stunning aspects to the practical Saturn, which is positioned in the most vulnerable part of your chart, and you can expect some lovely periods in your life. It brilliantly aspected Saturn twice in 2013, and it forms a third of these brilliant aspects in late May. This means you’ll still stumble over amazing ideas or opportunities. But you’ll need to handle them differently, or you may need to do something out of character and seek the support or ideas of others to exploit the situations.
Because you think and move swiftly, you’ll often make decisions based on your instincts and your own experiences. However, with eclipses taking place during the months of April and October indicating changes in circumstances you’re dealing with, you could find that you’re forced to modify plans and swiftly change the course of your life more often. Disruptive as this may be, the flip side is that it helps you look at issues from a different point of view and find new ways of tackling challenges.
Another important point to bear in mind this year is that with the most practical planet of them all, Saturn, resting in the cautious sign of Scorpio, you’ll need to play your hand very carefully.
Take things slowly, which is, of course, out of character for you. Although extremely challenging at times, what you learn is preparing you for the intense cycle of growth that begins when Saturn moves into your sign late in 2014, and begins a lengthy stay that will last until the end of 2017. During that period you’ll find you’re able to benefit from the efforts you’ll be making now.
However, the other task you’ll have – and this may seem an odd thing to describe as a task – is to learn to embrace new and existing joys.
It may be that the activities that have been a pleasure for you in the past change because your life changes, or it could be that as a result of the circumstances you’re drawn into or the people you meet, you find yourself pursuing those new joys.
Whatever the case, during 2014, life and luck will draw you into new settings. Take time to savour the joys and your life will be fulfilling.
