November asks you lovingly to take a good hard look at yourself. No, not the version other people see. Not the version you think you need to be. The person you already are! The person you try to keep protected and hidden. The person who you think isn’t world-ready yet. Scorpio season hunts that version down and drags it to the surface. It will ask you what’s holding you back, what parts need healing, and who told you this version wasn’t good enough.
It will ask you to be brave and honest and vulnerable. And just when you feel overexposed and on the verge of a breakdown, Sagittarius season comes along to celebrate you, to ask you what you want and how you can get it. It will fill your heart with joy and passion and adventure. It will say, where do you want to go, what do you want to learn? The opportunities are endless. The deeper you dive, the higher you fly this month. Just be brave, little tiger.
What to Expect This Month
We start November deep in Scorpio season. The sun, Mercury, and Venus reside in this watery, emotional yet private sign, so our relationships, communication, and outlook take a more serious nature than we are used to. Use this energy by journalling, meditating, and doing shadow work if you can. Mars is in Gemini and is well and truly in retrograde. While we are still driven to find truths and communicate them, our motivation is diminished slightly and we are encouraged to take time to re-examine and realign our motives. Jupiter in Pisces is also retrograde, and may present us with opportunities we thought we had missed, especially those that occurred between May 2022 and now.
On the 8th, there is a full moon and lunar eclipse in Taurus. Lunar eclipses are times of great change and release, and many repressed issues or wounds can come to a head. This Taurus full moon will be perfect for reflecting on the physical attributes of your life – those you wish to build and those you wish to dismantle. It’s also a great time to eat good food, get lots of sleep, and spend time outdoors. The next day, both the sun and Mercury oppose Uranus, suggesting decision-making around communication, mindset, or goals due to circumstances outside your control.
On the 16th, Venus moves into Sagittarius and you may feel lighter, more spontaneous, and more adventurous when it comes to love and creativity. There may also be some opportunities or harmony surrounding organisation, negotiation, and information. On the 17th, Mercury joins Venus in Sagittarius, so communication will become less formal and more fun. The 22nd signals the start of Sagittarius season, and now is the time to have exciting experiences, follow your curiosity, and learn new things. This is accentuated by the new moon in Sagittarius on the 24th, when themes of exploration, freedom, and expansion are present. What do you want your life to look like? And are you brave enough to create it? Set intentions and goals that are aligned with your wildest dreams – because why would you settle for less?
November for the Zodiac Signs
Affirmation: I use my power thoughtfully.
November is a month of power for you, Aries. You will start the month with transformation in mind, and there will be an uncharacteristic profoundness to your thoughts, words, and actions. Now is a time for brutal honesty (especially within yourself), but be wary of tactlessness and hurtfulness. Use this brave and independent energy to fight internal battles, explore intimacy, and follow your intuition rather than picking unnecessary fights and holding grudges. After the 16th and 17th, communication and relationships become lighter and more comfortable. The work you do during the first half of November will only continue to bring joy, confidence, and adventure as the month continues. This month, you are driven by creating a safe space, internally and externally. Do not rush this process; take time to re-examine your motives and question your beliefs and thinking.
Affirmation: I accept the love I deserve.
This month is all about relationships for you, Taurus. You love to settle in for the long haul, but when you look closer, you may find you’re holding onto someone who is weighing you down more than lifting you. On the 6th, you could make an unexpected relationship decision when your hand is forced. In a time where change and introspection are inevitable, work with the tides rather than against them. After the 16th and 17th, you feel adventurous, especially when it comes to intimacy, radical personal growth, and fully stepping into your power. You may also find yourself desiring less seriousness and more freedom, so follow your heart. After the 22nd, it is an ideal time for reflecting on where you wish to go (and grow) from here. You may feel less motivated this month, so slow down and be selective with what you spend your energy and attention on.
Affirmation: I see the joy, value, and importance of the little things in life.
Zoom in, Gemini – how are the details of your life looking? It can be tempting to focus only on the masterplan, but when you neglect the little things, the big things often fall apart. Use this month to dive deeply into your everyday life, and assess what kind of foundation you have built on your health, routines, and daily structure. After the 16th, your long-term relationships and other commitments come into focus, and you may feel the need to spread your social butterfly wings instead of settling into more stable rhythms. After the 22nd, you will be challenged to grow past these impulses, and this may be uncomfortable. Logic is overrated, so listen to your heart for a change. Take some time to slow down and question your motives. What are you prioritising lately? And does it have what it takes to make you happy?
Affirmation: I am fearlessly authentic.
Who are you, Cancer? And who gets to see that person? This month is about being authentically you, expressing yourself creatively, and doing what brings you joy. But it might not be as easy as you think. What beliefs hold you back from being your truest self? And who put those beliefs there? Don’t be surprised if you have to challenge some demons to make it through, but it will be worth it in the end. After the 16th, you may find the most exciting romance in the most unexpected, mundane places. From the 22nd, boring routines won’t cut it, so explore new health habits, exercise, food, and organisation systems. You’ll be driven to accumulate resources this month, but might not want to work too hard. Remember that slow progress is still progress, and take breaks when you need them.
Affirmation: I dare to heal my deepest wounds.
Leo, this month is all about creating sanctuary. Deep emotions may come up in the first half of the month as deep-seated family issues come to the surface. If you are brave enough to face the wounds buried deep, you will reach heights you never thought possible. After the 16th, things get less intense and you will find yourself more comfortable communicating and expressing yourself authentically and creatively once again. After the 22nd is a time when your soul reaps the benefit of all the work you have done to overcome your fears, filling the spaces where pain lived with passion instead. This is a great time to start new projects, take on new hobbies, and follow your joy and curiosity. You’re driven by deep growth this month, but this may take time. Don’t try to rush this process; instead, be where you are and give yourself what you need to make it through.
Affirmation: My thoughts work for me, not against me.
Virgo, this is a time to reflect on the way you think. This month is a deep dive into the power that words have in your life, and whether they are working for or against you. Do your words give you power or do they bring you down? After the 16th, things become more action-oriented. All your previous introspection gives you the optimism and motivation to change things up, try new things, move out of your comfort zone, and be more open-minded. You are less likely to take things seriously, more open to spontaneity, and more inclined to speak honestly. Use this time to connect with your loved ones through adventure and fun, and nurture yourself by getting back to your wildest self. This month, you are motivated by your connection to others, but you don’t need to be everything to everybody. Slow down and learn to prioritise who and what you value most.
Affirmation: I am here now, and I am grateful.
What do you value most, Libra? Now is a time to reflect on your place in the physical world, and be honest about your relationship with money, possessions, and personal property. This is the perfect time to take a deep dive into how you use the physical world to escape how you feel within. You may also need time alone during this period as you feel the need to take life more seriously than usual. After the 16th, you will start to emerge into the light as adventure, social connection, and creativity beckon. After the 22nd is a period of growth for you, and it may be time to expand the way you think and communicate, opening your mind and heart to the new and unexplored. How do your words create your reality, and is it the reality you want? You are motivated by your career, especially this month, but this motivation comes in waves. Don’t be afraid to stop and get your bearings now and again.
Affirmation: My strength is in my depth.
Scorpio, this is your month. You begin November deep within your mind, soul, and heart, and it feels pretty comfy there. Deep reflection can give you perspective on who you are, what you need, and what your purpose is here on earth. On the 8th, this energy is especially powerful, and a great time to align and organise what you need to turn your inner wishes into reality. You are unbelievably powerful, Scorpio, but you need to face your fears to access your courage. After the 16th, the intensity eases, and it is a great time to begin moving steadily towards your goals. After the 22nd, it is a great time to action and turn your ideas and hopes into concrete plans and realities. You are motivated by growth and learning this month, but your motivation may wane if you do too much too fast. Take your time, and listen to what your body, mind, and heart can handle.
Affirmation: I use my shadow to find my light.
Sagittarius, there is nothing you do better than forge new paths where others fear to tread, and no time is that more true than right now. You start the month in the thick of a potentially uncomfortable period of deep introspection. However, the more you uncover in these first two weeks, the more expansion and excitement you will encounter in the following two. After the 16th, things begin to shift as you experience your love life, your thoughts, your connection to others, and your goals and vision for the future come into focus. By the time the 22nd has arrived, you will positively glow with exuberance to elevate to a new level of enlightenment, development, and exploration. Plan or set intentions for your next trip, your next experience, your next conquest. You are driven to transform this month, but go at your own pace. Your future will be waiting regardless, don’t miss out on the journey there.
Affirmation: My power is in my vulnerability.
This month is about connection for you, Capricorn. This may be a time when you may be more in touch with your emotions and deep, long-held beliefs. You can only meet others where you have met yourself, and vice versa. The more time you can spend getting to know yourself on a vulnerable level, the more you open up yourself up for meaningful relationships, trusted friendships, and the life of your dreams. After the 16th, the deep dive into your subconscious and emotional self continues, but you may go about it more proactively. This is a great time to begin new spiritual practices, reach out to a teacher or mentor of some kind, and just generally spend time alone. This month is the dark before the sunrise – the more you bring up, the lighter you will feel. You are motivated by relationships this month, but you should be wary of misunderstandings and take time to reexamine your motives to make sure you’re on the right path.
Affirmation: I open my heart without fear or expectation.
Now is a time to focus on your career, Aquarius, and making sure what you dedicate yourself to matches your purpose and fulfilment here on earth. As much as you love to intellectualise your way through life, November is a time to feel. Are you happy with the way you spend your days? What are you working towards? It’s a time to be brave and, for you, this means facing your emotions head-on and letting yourself feel them. After the 16th, your focus will zoom out to encapsulate all your hopes and dreams, and you will be more excited to meet new people and push yourself to grow. After the 22nd, it’s an ideal time to set goals around where you want to go next – physically, emotionally, and mentally. You’re motivated by achieving balance in your life this month, but you may be feeling unmotivated to act on your revelations. You don’t need to rush; you just need to keep moving forward.
Affirmation: The deeper I go, the higher I grow.
Get ready to grow, Pisces, November is all about evolution. This is a good time to reflect on who you are becoming and what holds you back from becoming that person. You may spend more time alone while you sort through these priorities – just be careful not to get lost in the recesses of your mind and soul. After the 16th, there is a focus on your career, and you may feel an urge to shake things up in your job or vocation. It’s a great time to learn new skills and knowledge within your desired field, and travelling for work is also well suited for this time. After the 24th, this period of expansion and growth will be especially supercharged. Don’t hold back! You’re motivated by what brings you joy this month, but don’t be concerned if you’re not quite sure what that is right now. Take time to see what you like. Experiment, play, learn.
