Aries (March 21-April 19)
Some believe this time of year is when the veil between the worlds is thinnest, and you can have easier access to your guiding spirits. No matter what you believe, know you’re being guided and helped in ways beyond your understanding. You’re not alone. Look for signs and synchronicities for validation, especially around November 8.
As the month begins, you may need to attend to some financial housekeeping. Find creative solutions for paying down debts to feel freer. The full moon on November 12 spotlights the relationship between confidence and your earning potential. How do you value yourself? Focus on your long-term goals. You might invest in yourself by signing up for a class or dedicating resources to self-improvement. Any dollar spent to improve your health will pay back dividends.
Any heaviness and introspection at the beginning of the month will dissipate after November 20. So, stay open to the possibilities and try not to talk yourself out of a good time. After November 22, you could have a strong urge to get away, especially to visit loved ones.
The new moon on November 26 offers a mindset shift about your personal life. If you are single, embrace your inner free-spirit. Fully accept the part of you that wants independence, and then, you can you draw in a partner who’s a match. If you’re in a relationship, see how you can improve communication. Any upsets will smooth over by the end of the month, and you can focus on enjoying the life you’re creating together.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
When something needs to be done, you’re likely the one to step up and do it. You take pride in your self-reliance and ability to maintain equilibrium, even in intense times. The strange thing about being a human, though, is that we’re wired to be interdependent. We need to ask for help and allow others to show up for us in big and little ways. This month, you get to experience this interconnectedness. More importantly, you can let your guard down and trust.
Now, let’s talk about your love life. The full moon on November 12 highlights relationships. Memories of the past offer clarity about why you might be resistant to love right now. It’s time to let go of grudges, regrets, or “what-ifs.” See the future as a string of possibilities; you get to choose how they manifest. Even if you’re happily involved, you may question past decisions or wonder what happened to the one who got away. None of this is fruitful, though. Let the past inform the present, but don’t let it determine the future.
At the end of the month, you feel a stronger desire to connect with friends and family. You may feel more protective of those you love. Thoughts about the legacy you'd like to leave factor into your desire to be more in touch.
As Mercury stations direct on November 20, you could have new insights about business partnerships and alliances. You can structure relationships that support you in fulfilling your goals and realizing your dreams.
Gemini (May 20-June 20)
You’ve been hard at work all year, and you deserve a break. That time will come soon, especially with the holidays around the corner. In the meantime, this month is a time of preparation. Like a squirrel gathering nuts for the winter, you're on a mission and need to stay focused on the tasks at hand without giving in to distractions. Start the month by outlining your priorities. What do you need to finish to close out the year with a sense of accomplishment? The full moon on November 12 gives you extra momentum for completing those tasks.
Your ruling planet, Mercury, is retrograde until November 20, making this a favorable month for cleaning and clearing. You could decide to do a detox of both body and mind. Purge those unpleasant, self-critical thoughts for good! Communication challenges could arise, especially in the workplace. Be patient with others and yourself.
After November 22, the Sun shines in your sector of relationships. On November 24, Venus and Jupiter join forces in that same area of your horoscope. This could bring you a stroke of luck in connecting with potential business partners. It could also mean favorable outcomes in your love life, like a deeper commitment with your current partner or the spark of connection with a potential one. Keep this in mind as you weather relationship ups and downs at the beginning of the month. They could be nothing more than tests of faith. Remember to stay focused on your intentions. Anything else is a distraction.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
In the Northern hemisphere, the days are shorter and the weather cooler. It's cuffing season, a time to relax by the fireplace and cuddle under a blanket. The romantic part of you craves comfort and connection, especially on November 8. Your inner go-getter, though, may have different goals. Honor both parts, the ambitious one, and the homebody.
With the holidays fast approaching, you could feel pressure to complete your to-do list before taking time away. The full moon on November 12 energizes you to complete these tasks in record time. I offer one caveat, however. Mercury, the planet of details, is retrograde until November 20. Be patient with yourself and others. It’s okay to walk away from a project that seems stuck. Follow the flow.
In your public life, focus on networking. On November 24, Venus and Jupiter meet up and help bring new clients, colleagues, associates, or friends into your life. This is a favorable time to pitch to potential investors or start a crowdfunding campaign. Privilege your inner go-getter.
You may have experienced love-life challenges this year. If so, you might be discerning what next steps to take to improve your relationship. If you are single, you may feel a stronger desire for a committed relationship. Being in love can make you feel vulnerable, which isn’t always comfortable for a soft-shelled Cancer. Trusting yourself is the foundation for trusting another. If you can develop this muscle right now, especially around November 25, any other relationship challenges will smooth over.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
At some point in every hero’s story, the threshold guardians appear. The hero’s tests of faith inspire resolve. These tests equip the hero to triumph. No stranger to a good story arc, you can look back at your life and identify those moments in your hero’s journey. You could be in the midst of one right now. Mercury retrograde (until November 20) can help you face fears, doubts, and tribulations to triumph for good.
The full moon on November 12 spotlights your home and family, making this a favorable time to clear any unfinished family business from the past, like releasing resentment or working through disappointments.

Jupiter and Venus shine on your love life on November 24. If you feel a deficit in this area of your life, invest in yourself for a higher return. Rather than thinking about how to meet someone, think about who you want to be for your future partner. You can attract love just by being a vibrational match to love. The same goes for your current relationship. With Venus moving through fiery Sagittarius, you could experience more passion and romance this month.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Your sign’s symbol is the virgin, which, in ancient times, was one who dedicated her life to serving the goddess Vesta. Your sign, therefore, is associated with ritual and service. When the service part of your life feels overwhelming, light a candle, say an invocation, and make those tasks more like rituals and less like work. Try this at the beginning of the month, when Mercury is retrograde and adding extra steps to everything you do.
The full moon on November 12 helps you see from a spiritual perspective. You might notice guiding signs from the universe or from unsuspecting others. Pay attention to these messages. You could be led to learn something new. Because your mind is more active, you might want to incorporate meditation into your daily life, if you don’t already.
Your attention turns to the family at the end of the month. The new moon on November 26 could mean favorable news if you have been in the process of buying or selling a home. Days before, Jupiter and Venus inspire your inner decorator, making the end of the month a welcome time to purchase art for the home.
Your love life could shift as you discover how to better communicate with your partner. If you feel you’re on different pages, learn their love language. Maybe they don’t speak in words but rather in acts of service. If you are single, you may have an encounter with someone from your past. Try to stay open-minded without jumping back into a relationship.
Libra (September 22-October 22)
The seeds you planted at the beginning of the year are sprouting in a late harvest. Take advantage of this abundant time. It's easy for a cardinal sign to think about what's next and move onward. You may have felt internal pressure driving you to climb up the ladder toward success or to have a more public life. If you have been frustrated by minor setbacks, ask yourself if you've hit your own ceiling. It's a layer of fears and beliefs that keeps you in your comfort zone. If so, it's time to expand beyond those layers, and you can do it!
The full moon on November 12 highlights finances. Because Mercury is retrograde, you might need to revisit past decisions regarding your spending or saving. You could also research ways to be better prepared for the long-term future. If finances have been tight, draw from your past skills and experiences. Reach out to former colleagues or employers and reestablish relationships. They could prove beneficial. You could also ask for more, first from the universe and then from your employers or clients. Raise that ceiling!
The new moon on November 26 rekindles sentimental feelings. It could inspire you to get together with family and close friends— to build community. Yours is a relationship sign, and you thrive in conversation and communion with others. Make time to be with those you love, even if it requires travel. Connections with family and close friends can shift hearts and allow healing to occur where it’s most needed.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Consider all the possibilities open to you. They’re limitless! Start by adopting a mindset that aligns with the life you want to live. For example, if you want more peace in your life, eliminate stressful thoughts. Each thought you think and word you utter is like a magic spell, especially during Scorpio season. Choose your words and thoughts with care.
At the beginning of the month, with Mercury retrograde, you may need to pull back in your professional life to reassess. This will allow you to gain momentum and fly forward at the end of the month. Let this be a time of soul searching. At the end of the month, things shift in positive ways. You might hear of an opportunity around November 24. If you have a sudden thought about someone in your life, reach out and make a connection. That’s your intuition at work. The new moon on November 26 could boost your confidence to solidify an offer or ask for a raise.
At the beginning of the month, you might need to declutter. It can be difficult for a fixed-sign Scorpio to let go, but it’s a new year. Start it off by creating space for newness in your life.
Your love life may have seen surprising developments. As the Sun shines in your sign until November 22, you feel bolder and braver. Mars enters your sign on November 18. These two lights help you access the courage to share any thoughts you've been holding back. Mars also means to follow your passion.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Our minds are hardwired to be attracted to newness. Our bodies release dopamine, that feel-good hormone, when when we're exposed to something novel. Our bodies and brains recognize the potential in the shiny and new. You can blame this for any lack of focus you feel this month. Mercury is retrograde in other-worldly Scorpio until November 20. Because of this and where it falls in your horoscope, you might make peace with your distractions. Think of them as your mind's way of incorporating play into your daily tasks. Then, from that place of acceptance, you can be more mindful, returning to the present moment and task at hand.
Venus, the planet of beauty, is in your sign until November 25, and you could walk with a bit more confidence. Take advantage of this influence and do one thing that takes courage, either in your professional or personal life. Start small, and the results will be significant as you reduce anxiety and fear.

If you’re in a complicated relationship, you could have a positive turning point that offers clarity. No matter your relationship status, you will feel loved because you will be more loving at the end of the month.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Sometime before November 5, take a look at your life and be real with yourself. Are you reaching your potential? Where in your life have you grown complacent? Where are you not giving your all, or worse, where are you resentful? Where do you feel bored? Don’t think for a moment you have to sacrifice one area of life for another. You don’t have to compromise your health for your job. Your life is a whole system, and when something’s off within that system, the entire system is off. A slight shift in priorities can help you have more balance. Now is the time to carpe diem! Aim higher than your comfort zone, and you can shake off any doldrums to find passion again.
Around November 8, a clarifying thought or conversation could help you structure a path forward to reach a personal or professional goal.
The beginning of the month keeps you active with social activities. The full moon on November 12 could inspire you to rise into leadership within your community. Do your current friendships and networks align with the future you envision? In your work and life, hold a vision of the highest potential for love, purpose, and fulfillment.
With Mercury retrograde until November 20, you could meet up with someone significant from your past. This friendship could be something more, but see the potential challenges and opportunities with eyes wide open before you invest yourself back into it.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
As the month begins, you could feel stretched in different directions. Home and work both want your attention. Despite all of this, or maybe because of this, make time to play. Draw on the drum as a metaphor. The surface is stretched taut and tense, but if it had slack, it would sound flat and dull. You are an instrument, too, and you have your own unique song to play in the world. On November 12, full moon day, you will see how the right tension at the right time can support you in better expressing yourself to the world.
Your social life grows more active this month as Venus slides into fiery Sagittarius on November 1. She will help you meet new friends, build community, and find ways to become more involved. You could even win the popular vote or be asked to take a leadership position.
Expect a few surprises this month with Mercury retrograde until November 20. Back up your computer and phone, and triple check any documents or emails you're sending. Misunderstandings can happen during a retrograde cycle, but they can quickly be cleared up at the end of the month.
In your romantic life, you could feel like a scene from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Romantic connections with new people may have a hazy quality, and conversations with your partner may run in circles. Lead with curiosity and maintain an inquisitive mind. In doing so, you may see your love life through rose-colored glasses, especially before November 8.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
You have the gift of faith. When you believe in something, you commit yourself fully to that ideal. When you believe in someone, you stay true. Look at how you give those you love second, third, and sometimes fourth chances. You’re willing to see the best in others and see their potential. Now, apply all of this to yourself. Can you see the best in you? Can you forgive yourself? You will have the chance to explore these themes and answer these questions. This is a month to strengthen your faith and access wisdom.
