This is another difficult month for you, Capricorn, considering the evolutionary pressure that remains upon you, and is still growing. With your ruler, Saturn, in close conjunction all year with transformational Pluto, climaxing as 2020 ends, there has been tremendous underground desire that you let go of those parts of yourself that are hindering your forward developmental movement. You are currently focused on career and profession, and their associated accolades, accentuated after mid-month. Inner intuitional intelligences are also growing in strength and pertinence; these represent your deepest principles and values, and must be heeded if you are to find true peace. The urge is strong for safely keeping to the status quo, symbolized by Saturn, so that denial is one option. However, revolutionary Uranus is also prominent in this November timing, representing a powerful factor urging for experiment and radical change. This Trickster energy is potent as well. You might want to recognize that between Saturn and Uranus there is no real contest; Uranus will win out in the end.
