Now that the time changed and the days are getting shorter, it’s safe to say that Fall/Winter is officially upon us. This month we’re celebrating Scorpios and Sagittarius, as well as the season for indulging – starting with Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the holiday celebrations, we’ve got our hands full. Planets wise, we’re letting the sun and Jupiter go from Scorpios into Sagittarius, while giving us the right nudge into the months of celebrating, and all things sparkle!
Starting with a new moon at the beginning of the month, Venus will go direct towards the middle, with Mercury going retrograde almost at the same time, and ending with a dark full moon after Thanksgiving. While that last full moon is one of the hardest to come by, we’ll be back in full swing as we enter Sagittarius and get revived with optimism, happiness and health for the holidays.
But before we divulge any more predictions, keep scrolling to find out what November has in store for you, the surprises you might encounter, and more!
October 23rd – November 21st
To start, happy birthday dear Scorpios! This is your month to celebrate – starting with Halloween and moving towards Thanksgiving, there’s no shortage of food and drinks in sight! Starting with a new moon on the 7th, where you’ll be surprised just how celebratory your birthday month can get – ask and you shall get. Moving towards the middle of November, Venus will go direct giving you some much-needed calm, and peace and quiet. In fact, why not book yourself a pampering session and focus on yourself while you’re at it? Lastly, Mercury goes retrograde around the same time which might take a toll on your finances, but nothing to be wary of.
November 22nd – December 21st
The first celebration of Fall/Winter, Halloween is finally behind you – which means you’ve still got a few weeks left before we celebrate you, as well as the next celebratory holidays. While that may sound overwhelming, the beginning of the month will be ideal to lay low and not RSVP to every single invitation. Fast-forward to the 16th, as Venus goes direct, and Mercury goes retrograde and you’ll notice your friendships blossoming and enjoying their presence. Ending the month, the full moon on Thanksgiving will not be a pleasant welcome, but perhaps it will give you some perspective on where you stand and what you want.
December 22nd – January 19th
November is all about your career and relationships, dear Cap! This month you’ll find yourself striving at work, deeply focused and getting more done and being productive than you’ve been in months. In the friendship department, you’re open to meeting new people and making those connections grow more than just networking. The full moon on Thanksgiving may give you some not so pleasant news regarding your health, so make sure to watch out for your body – no need to diet abruptly as this definitely isn’t the season, but take some time during the day for some self-loving!
January 20th – February 18th
A big focus on yourself lays ahead of you this month, Aquarius. The Scorpio new moon on November 7th will give room for some revelation in your careers zone, which might lead to a promotion or a change of track. This will continue with Jupiter on the 8th, offering some insight into your long-term vision of where you can expect to see yourself in a few years. Apart from the workplace, expect to see some shifting and mild chaos going on in your friendship sector, and ending the month with a perhaps slightly tumultuous Thanksgiving, due to its dark full moon.
February 19th – March 20th
Same goes for you Pisces, you’ll find yourself busy in your career zone, right before the holidays. Expect some risk-taking which only helps you take on a new project and further grow your career. Jupiter enters in your professional zone on November 8th, which will lead to the above-mentioned growth. Don’t let Mercury going retrograde slow you down, you’re the only person in control of yourself! When Venus goes direct on the 16th, you’ll see hard work paying off, ending with the Gemini full moon on the 23rd which will help you get through some frustrations that have been building up for a while.
March 21st – April 19th
Venus is still in retrograde which means that whatever she throws at you until she goes direct, make sure to be prepared. Because the new moon on the 7th is here to bring you some good news in the finance department, and when Venus goes direct on the 16th, expect for the planet of love to bring you clarity and opening in all things love. Don’t forget that Mercury goes retrograde on the same day, so make sure not to do or say anything that might get back to you in no time. You don’t want to be entering the holiday season on a bad foot. Lastly, the full moon on Thanksgiving may brush up some family drama, so make sure to keep a zen attitude as long as dinner lasts!
April 20th – May 20th
November is expected to be filled with deep soul-searching, love and coming to terms with your senses. The Scorpio new moon on the 7th will start with giving you love and comfort from friends and family, followed by Jupiter the day after, making you feel all the love from your significant other. Not into deep affection and reluctant to show feelings? That’s what Mercury going retrograde on the 16th will do to you, so make sure to keep an open mind. Venus going direct will counteract Mercury, which is good news, and the Gemini full moon at the end of the month will get your creative juices flowing.
May 21st – June 20th
Things are looking busy for you Geminis! First things first, though this is the season to indulge, you might think about starting off by embarking on a new diet path – whatever it is, go for it! The Scorpio full moon will be right there to help you get onboard by making your good habits come to life. Later this month, Venus going direct and Mercury going retrograde will have some impact on your relationships – expect lots of energy going forward, and perhaps even an appearance from a blast from the past. The full moon on Thanksgiving is bound to put things back in order just in time for December.
June 21st – July 22nd
Your career and workplace are what’s on your plate this month, dear Cancers. You’ve got your hands full between getting to inbox zero in time for the holidays, and curious to try a new path or project at the office. Use your creativity to get the most of it, and the Scorpio new moon is right there to keep you company. In the romance department, it’s officially cuffing season which may or may not lead you to give into a new relationship, even if it’s just a fling!
July 23rd – August 22nd
When twists and turns happen along the way, make sure to keep your eyes on the prize! That’s the motto you should be following this month, Leo. Uranus going retrograde will have you thinking outside the box, which is never a bad thing – and though you might be fearful of its results, think of the impact in the long-term, and remember that change is never a bad thing. The middle of the month will lead to some ups and downs thanks to Venus going direct and Mercury going retrograde, so be careful of how you display your emotions and be crystal-clear in how you feel and what you want.
August 23rd – September 22nd
You’re not one to easily display your feelings, but perhaps this start of the holiday season is a good time to let your guard down and express your desires more clearly. Fear not, the Scorpio new moon on the 7t is right there to assist you. Jupiter entering your origins zone on November 8th will have you contemplating change and perhaps a move across the country – new year, new me? Too early? I guess it’s a good thing you have until January to make up your mind. Don’t worry, it might just lead to a new job position or switching up your current restaurant habits. If you’re still indecisive, wait for the Gemini full moon on the 23rd which will bring you some clarity.
September 23rd – October 22nd
An injection of cash right before the holidays? That’s what you’re looking at, fellow Libras! And what better way to end the year than with a positive income statement, just in time to shop for the holiday season (ok, and splurge on your friends and family gifts!). Moving over to your romance department, you might want to give up on anyone that’s not worthy of your attention – we know it’s cuffing season, but it’s still not acceptable to settle on anyone unworthy! Wait for the Gemini full moon on the 23rd, as it will bring you good news on a career move or surprise trip you’ve been longing for.
