As November begins, we swap out our pumpkin spice for twinkly lights in preparation for the holidays. We begin this month with the sun still in Scorpio and a lot of Sagittarius energy with their season approaching. Tuesday, Nov. 8, brings us a full moon and a lunar eclipse in Taurus that invites change.
This is an important time to avoid drama by taking it easy and keeping things low-key. Saggitarius season begins Nov. 22, inviting us to explore a fresh start. November finds Mars retrograde in Gemini, which lasts until Jan. 12, 2023. This retrograde encourages us to look inward and take time to reassess our goals. Lots of good energy is circulating this month, as Sagittarius energy is full of passion, enthusiasm and optimism. Keep reading to see what this month has in store for you:
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This month, your ruling planet Mars continues in retrograde. This will create confusion in your life, so it is important to reflect on self-expression, as Mars is the planet of battle and passion. You might find yourself feeling sleepy this month instead of your usual sharpness, but that's okay, Aries! There is value in slowing down, taking breaks and chasing your ambitions with more intention. This may be a good time to sleep in more often this month and practice self-care.
Keep an eye out for Tuesday, Nov. 8, as it brings a full moon and lunar eclipse in Taurus. These Lunar eclipses can signify a time of rapid change, and it's something to embrace.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus, be ready to embrace positive change! The full moon in Taurus on Nov. 8 only happens once a year, so get as much out of it while you can. This year is about out with the old and in with the new. Manifesting on the full moon is very effective, so don't hesitate to write out your wishes.
Be wary of the desire to overspend now that Mars is in retrograde in your sector of finances. This influence will be particularly strong during the first half of the month while you experience emotional changes. Opt for self-care rather than material items. Don't be afraid of this transitional time, as life will become simpler and more predictable once your ruler, Venus, enters Sagittarius on Nov. 16. This is a good time to make a holiday wish list and think about what you want to get for others.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Welcome to November, Gemini! Working with the current cosmic forces this month can help you grow personally and spiritually. You have felt the effects of Mars, the planet of passion and drive, for a while now, which can cause you to anger more easily. This remains in place until Jan. 12, so ensure you keep your cool this holiday season.
Once Sagittarius season arrives on Nov. 22, it is time to focus on your social life and relationships. You may experience deeper relationships and more intense connections. You can learn from others' perspectives, as Sagittarius represents expansion and exploration. This is a great month for you to explore new partnerships and opportunities!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This month, the moon meets Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces, which can allow for meaningful connections to form and deepen as the moon connects with Pluto in Capricorn.
The moon rules you, so your energy will peak during the full moon on Nov. 8. This is an ideal time to connect with your creative side. Once Sagittarius season arrives on Nov. 22, you could have less free time due to the heavier workload coming your way.
Once this season arrives, you may feel like you've got a million work projects and personal responsibilities. It's time to get organized and prioritize rest and care. Don't fall into the trap of overextending yourself too much. Instead, use this time to plan and set future goals. You got this, Cancer!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
November looks like a pretty busy month for you, Leo. You might have to balance sudden changes at work or school and spend more time at home. Don't let pride get in the way. Ask for help, as your loved ones are there to support you. This will be especially true during the Nov. 8 full moon lunar eclipse, which will shake some things up.
The intensity from the eclipse begins to slow down as soon as Nov. 16 arrives and will allow you to let loose and have some fun! For you, Sagittarius season beginning on Nov. 22 is all about having fun and reconnecting with your inner child. Why not do some experimenting this month?
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Hi Virgo! Your instincts will hold strong this month as the sun, Mercury and Venus all travel through Scorpio and the sector of your chart that governs communication and thought processes. The planets will activate your third house of communication, allowing you to read others easier. Use this time to set boundaries, focus on your interests and dedicate less time to prioritizing others.
To your dismay, disorganization threatens to throw off your game around Nov. 10, when Mercury squares off with restrictive Saturn. Issues can arise if you are too stubborn to ask for help when you need it! The vibe won't be like this for long, though. Once Sagittarius season hits, you will feel more optimistic and on track.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
For you, Libra, November is a month that will keep you on your toes. The first part of the month will focus on financial growth and security as the sun, Mercury and Venus travel through Scorpio.
Your social life will blossom during the second half of November, when Venus, your ruling planet, enters your third house of communication, siblings and close friends. This will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and become more social.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Happy Birthday, Scorpio! The moon meets Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces, inspiring creativity and romance. The moon connects with your ruling planet Pluto, currently in Capricorn, which can lead to deep, meaningful discussions. You're also feeling especially productive as the moon enters Aries.
Things chill out for you once Sagittarius season arrives on Nov. 22, allowing you to focus on self-growth. The Nov. 23 new moon is a great opportunity to set intentions or begin a new project that means a lot to you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Happy early birthday, Sagittarius! The moon meets Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces this month which will make some emotional breakthroughs take place. This is the time to think clearly, embrace self-introspection and focus on the future.
On Nov. 22, we finally hit the Saggitarius season. Jupiter, your planetary ruler, wakes up from its four-month retrograde, and all of this combined will bring luck on your side. You might experience a happy surprise or a well-deserved opportunity!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Happy fall, Capricorn! This month will give you some well-deserved peace after the planets haven't been in your favor for the past few months. Your ruling planet, Saturn, has been going retrograde since June and has gone direct again in October. Pluto has as well.
November is the first month in a while to start and end with both planets going the right way around. This will make you feel calm and likely bring some good luck. This is a great month to start a project you have been putting off for a while.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
What's up, Aquarius? The vibes are in your favor this month. The moon is in Aquarius twice this month, which doesn't happen often. The moon's energies are those of mysticism, dreams and wishes, so you'll find that your wishes have twice as good a chance to come true.
Exciting shifts can occur in your love life or creative pursuits as the moon squares off with Mars retrograde in Gemini. An energy of abundance and opportunity flows as the moon meets Jupiter. The moon enters Aries later on, kicking up communication. Remember to balance work and play, as the Nov. 8 full moon eclipse tends to instigate change.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
A lot of signs will feel challenged this month, but if you play your cards right, you can have a lot of fun this Scorpio season. The universe is urging you to open your mind by seeking newness in your life. Learn about something new, sign up for a class you would have never considered, or just simply take a day trip somewhere. Take all the time you need for yourself by Nov. 22 because starting then, Sagittarius season will ask you to focus on your work.
On Nov. 20, asteroid Vesta will enter your sign, deepening your interest in your spirituality. As a feminine energy that promotes feeling whole, Vesta will encourage you to dig deep into your subconscious as a way to find your inner strength.
