As the seasons change, so does the weather – now that we’re in November we can officially declare that the temperatures have dropped, the holiday season is upon us and the busy week of Halloween celebrations is finally over. If you’ve been dressing up as much as we witnessed on social media, then it seems it might be time for a relaxing week ahead.
This month it’s all about Scorpios, Mercury going retrograde during the first 3 weeks, with a special appearance in the Sun on the 11th, and a new moon on November 26th right after we enter Sagittarius. It’s no secret that the Scorpio sign is fiery and passionate – this will give us the perfect opportunity to reflect on ourselves and see what improvements can be made before the year ends, or perhaps even before we start prepping for Thanksgiving!
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
Happy birthday dear Scorpios, it’s a busy month for you and it’s about to get busier! You’ve got Mercury in retrograde for the next 3 weeks, so it’s crucial you stay on top of your game when it comes to communication. You’ve got a full moon coming up on the 12th which will make you want to spoil and spend time with your loved ones. Later this month, as the sun moves into Sagittarius and the new moon hits on the 27th, you’ll be hell bent on figuring out your finances for the last quarter.
November 22nd – December 21st
Things are looking good for you Sags! It seems that all is rounding up nicely for you this month, so let’s give yourself a head start. Venus will be in your sign for a good portion of this month, which means that all eyes are on you – you’ll be as charismatic and kind-hearted as you’re known to be, and we hope you’ll share it with those around you. Look out for the new moon in your sign on the 26th, which will be a great opportunity to celebrate you until your birthday!
December 22nd – January 19th
Besides Mercury in retrograde for pretty much all of November, you’re looking at fun things to do to keep you busy. Start with chatting with a friend about work and exchanging ideas, or better yet plan a quick adventure out of the city. The full moon in Taurus on the 12th will be the right time to let your inner child out and do something out of the norm, before the sun enters in your sign on the 22nd and will make you want to retract for a while.
January 20th – February 18th
A natural leader, this month is shining a spotlight on you! Teach them your ways, whether it’s at home or at work – the better you are as a team, the more efficient you are. You’ll also experience some downtime around the 12th thanks to the full moon, but not for too long – the end of the month will get you in the spirit of giving back right in time for Thanksgiving!
February 19th – March 20th
While you think about how to manage hosting Thanksgiving at your house this year, take your mind off it for a second and plan a quick getaway with your significant other or best friend. That way you’ll escape everyone’s babbling on about Mercury in retrograde, and you get a break before the hassle starts. When that’s all done and dusted, you’ll want to sign off this month by setting some goals for the next months to come, and more importantly the way you want to start 2020.
March 21st – April 19th
It’s a month of ups and downs dear Aries! You’re looking at figuring out your finances and projecting yourself into the future, as well as getting hit with having to choose where to sacrifice your spending. But you know how they say that everything happens for a reason? Try to use that when you’re feeling down, even if it does in fact sound cliche. Other than that, you’ll find yourself getting more and more creative both at work and privately – this will be a great distraction from the above!
April 20th – May 20th
Start the month with a busy, busy romantic situation – you’ll start to think about old exes, and there’s a chance they’re thinking the same. But instead of answering to everyone’s desires, you do you! Keep your options open and remember why they’re an ex in the first place. As you move further into the month, self-care will be calling your name, so indulge! You’ll end the month assessing who is worth keeping in your life, and who isn’t!
May 21st – June 20th
November is dangerously close to December, which means it’s almost the end of the year. It’s normal to feel anxious about not having achieved as much as you had planned to – but there’s no point in beating yourself up. Everyone moves at their own pace – so why not start by tackling those last few things one at a time. The new moon on the 26th will offer a new vision and help you create your own perspective instead of comparing yourself to others.
June 21st – July 22nd
Amidst all the Mercury going retrograde, new moons and the sun moving into Sagittarius, you can find your calm within yourself. Sure you’ve heard about meditation everywhere, but did you ever give it a try? Once you feel like yourself again – work on your relationships and your wants and needs. Gather your friends for a night out and don’t be shy about telling a potential partner about what matters most to you. November’s looking quite gloomy, so create some clarity wherever you can!
July 23rd – August 22nd
Does Fall and the weeks before the holiday season make you feel extra cozy and wanting to spend time eating and drinking with your closed ones? You’re not alone, so forget about being on a diet 24/7 for once and indulge while you can! Things at work are switching up, it’s time for a change or a promotion so make sure you voice your desires and assume new responsibilities! Speaking of cozy season, if you’re single it’s time to mingle and show a new side of yourself!
August 23rd – September 22nd
You know that instant stress-inducing feeling of sending a text to the wrong person? This month’s Mercury in retrograde might have you feeling a little off and not as concentrated – avoid the above and make sure you double-check all you do. In other news, with all the new fall fashion you’ve been stacking your wardrobe with, it might be time to do a little closet cleanup. Ditch what you don’t need anymore and do the same around your home! Lastly, don’t forget to get a head start in holiday gifting, the days are going by faster than ever.
September 23rd – October 22nd
Besides the fun aspect of the holiday season, it can also bring some real stress in the financial department. Between birthdays, holidays, Secret Santa and Christmas, it’s crucial to budget in advance. And don’t hesitate to say no to any events you don’t feel comfortable splurging on, you’ll be more relieved at the end of the day. On the bright side, it’s also a good time to reconnect with a friend you haven’t seen in a while or go see that show you’ve been meaning to!
