“As Above, So Below…” November is an immensely karmic month that takes place on a very spiritual level. It is also a month of manifestation and working your alchemic magic, in casting out your intentions, or facing up to negative thought-patterns which keep you prisoner within a restrictive cycle. Gains or losses, this month is bound to change the course of your path and how you tend to your spiritual, physical, emotional, and mental garden. November is going to align you to your highest Self, but in doing so, it may require a sacrifice which will stem from a place within the ego.
November starts off with a high note as Venus enters Sagittarius on the 1st. For the next month we are inspired with optimism and confidence within our relationships, finances, and may even feel more prone to take risks or jump into something new. While Mercury is still in retrograde, and it is warned to do these things, we can’t help but take the leap because of the adventurous influence Sagittarius sparks upon us.
On November 12th, we are gifted a massive boost of creative energy towards our projects, hobbies, and passions with the Taurus Full Moon. This is truly a gift from the cosmos, to add that extra oomph towards things we have put off because of a writer’s block or lack of inspiration.
A few days later, on November 18th things are put into overdrive as Mars moves into Scorpio where it will stay until January 3rd, 2020. Scorpio is one of Mars’ homes, and so it feels amazing here, allowing us to act out on our desires, but of course in a subtle, almost manipulative way as Scorpio loves to work in the shadows. This is a time of not just asking what you want, but planting the idea that others want to give you what it is you desire, making them think it was their idea all along. This placement enables for us to reach out for what we wish for, but also for it to meet us halfway as well – as that is the alchemic power of Scorpio when it is home in Mars.
We can all come out of that hole we have been hiding under when Mercury finally goes direct on November 20th – however – it will still be within Scorpio until December 9th. This adds power to the Mars placement in Scorpio and makes things a whole lot more magical with getting what we want and desire. We don’t necessarily have to bluntly ask, as we are able to manipulate the energies to have it all flow to us.
Just two dates later, on November 22nd the Sun moves into Sagittarius. We have to be careful around this time and remain glued to that bigger picture and remain loyal to the greater vision we have for the future, as it may be easy to fall for distractions, or to try and take that shortcut for the sake of skipping all of the hard-work our higher goals may entail. Backed with optimism and a sense of adventure, it would be wise to direct this energy towards the long path ahead, and to build upon our vision, rather than to throw it all away for a risk that may or may not work out.
On November 25th things take a bit of a darker turn as Venus moves into Capricorn. Now this energy can be used to our advantage, or we can suffer and learn from the consequences when we try and resist. With that said, it would be wise to use Capricorns influence of hard work and take a more serious view in terms of our love lives, financial situation, or the artistic projects we have going on. This is a time of working extra hard and going that extra mile to get what we want. When Venus is in Capricorn, things might not be as flowy and romantic, however, we are given the gifts we need to make things more stable, structured, and to withstand the tests of time.
The New Moon in Sagittarius on November 26th grants our greatest wish. This New Moon is all about planting new seeds and inspires a boost of optimism, allowing for us to look to the brighter side of things which adds to our motivation in watering those seeds and growing a garden that is beautiful and abundant. This would be a great time to make a goal, start a new project, create a dream-board, or to perform a New Moon ritual to cast your intentions out to the Universe.
Neptune wakes up from a 5-month long nap as it turns Direct on November 27th. Neptune has been retrograding since April, which had dulled our senses and pushed us into some deep shadow work as we purified our spiritual selves. This wake-up call may empower your intuitive abilities and spiritual gifts. Neptune is also home in Pisces, where its natural gifts and the influence it has upon us is at its most powerful in aligning us with our divine purpose and spiritual authenticity.

November offers you a second chance to win at something you had once failed in the past with – or perhaps the timing was just off. You really want this, and you want it so much that you might be psyching yourself out a bit in thinking that its much too large for you. While you are labeled as the most confident and go-getter of the Zodiac, you still have your moments where you question your own strength and ability, especially when it comes to treasured goals and desires and with things that you had tried and failed at in the past.
However, this time things are different. You are able to look into the past and understand where you went wrong, or what you should have tried, and so this time around you can use your past as valuable experience.
A lot of what you are working towards this month truly depends on your perspective, in what you are trying to achieve in the ways you are going about it, and also your perspective on yourself. Don’t hold yourself back because of being doubtful or underestimating yourself.

November is going change your life forever, Taurus, and while it might not seem like it at the time, this is truly beneficial; it is much like a blessing in disguise. This may come about during the Full Moon in Taurus, which puts you in the spotlight, and those sweet rewards that come from this massive change may not come until after the New Moon in sag, when you have considered what next steps you must take and cast out your intentions once you know what your true desires are. You will begin to see that this old lifestyle, relationships, or thought pattern you had clung to was actually serving you wrong the whole time, or it had just run its course and was constricting your growth. You may find that you were constantly setting boundaries with something, thinking of ways to survive or hold onto your sense of stability with this around, and now with it gone, you are free and able to have all that you thought was too far away from you.
November gives you a major shift onto a new level which is far more rewarding and abundant in many aspects that you had imagined before. So, don’t cling so tightly to what is slipping away, Taurus, and let go of what has been dragging you through the mud.

November is going to be quite the karmic month for many, and you are no different Gemini. However, it seems that you are in store for far more rewards than lessons, as you have already dealt with those lessons while Saturn and Pluto were retrograde, and now that they are direct and out of that post-shadow period, you can start to rake in those rewards. Still, there is some work to be done in terms of acting upon those lessons learned, which might not be too easy.
One thing you need to focus more on this month is cultivating stability. While it may be difficult, you need to consider the connections and attachments you have held onto which may be toxic, or perhaps you have outgrown because they have run their course in terms of lessons and there is no more growth to be had.
Don’t hold onto anything that doesn’t serve you. You can be a beneficial friend, as you are quite selfless in what you would do for the ones you care about, however, you cannot keep connections that do not return the favor, otherwise you are just giving yourself away to a lost cause.

Letting go is no easy task, especially for you, Cancer. November might prove to be a troubling, but yet incredibly magical month for you. However, your emotions and anxiety might get the best of you as you are called to sacrifice something, an ideal, a project, or a relationship, that you had invested so much of yourself into. While this is saddening, it will prove to be beneficial, you just be gentle with yourself and look to the brighter side of things rather than the negatives.
You’re ultra-sensitive this month, and you feel everything so very deeply. When it comes to the affects of loss, you feel it like a dagger in the heart – even if it’s not you that is going through it, you can feel the emotions and sensations of those around you as you are a very strong empath. When this occurs, you need to ensure that you are taking time to ground and shield your energy so you can be a supportive friend and not another victim within this circumstance.
November calls for you do to work overtime in your shadow work, in dealing with the triggers and emotions accompanied by them and releasing what is slipping away from your life. While you want to take cover in your hermit cave until it all blows you, you are called to feel everything that November brings, as this is the best way to overcome these cycles and to move forward.

Leo, you put your heart into everything that you do, and it seems that November is going to be quite an expressive month for you in terms of feeling inspired and deeply connected, allowing for your heart to be put on your sleeve and everything you do from a place of love. If you happen to be on a spiritual path, then you can expect for November to bring an uproar of cosmic downloads as you channel new ideas for your creative work. This month you feel more like yourself and incredibly in love with life which pushes you to do even more – to go above and beyond in your work and the ways that you express your love to others.
You might be starting a new creative project this month and it is bound to be quite successful, that is as long as you put your whole heart into it. Your work doesn’t even feel like work because you will enjoy doing it so much. This can even be a new relationship as well – something which means a lot to you and brings you to a place of joy.
While you are drunk on love for what you do and who you connect with, you do need to be mindful when it comes to being grounded and aware of your surroundings, because you will be high up in the clouds and need to land sometime!

You are going to receive a heavy dose of closure this month that you had thought you already dealt with – well you were wrong, you didn’t feel what you needed to feel, you kept yourself busy and avoided sitting with your emotions. You may experience a situation that triggers a major emotional release that you have been putting off. You feel disappointed, taken for granted, and may even be second guessing something you had separated from in the past.
While you are having a difficult time dealing with your emotions this month, you need to know that once you sit with them and sort them out, and then release what sits heavy within your heart, then you will set yourself up for taking on something more meaningful and also receiving the growth you have been searching for.
November calls for many of the signs to sacrifice something from the past, which you feel you have already done, but you haven’t completely cleared it out and have been harboring emotions which now act as blockages and even self-sabotage from things which are beneficial for you. Do the work, Virgo.

Your connections with others prove to be extremely beneficial this month. You receive all that you need and are backed with loving support by those who adore and love you. November is quite a karmic month for many of the zodiac signs, and it seems that while many are paying dues, you may be receiving rewards from dues you have already paid. However, there is a need to remember that while you are receiving recognition for your talents and the support you need to show them off, you also need to do the same for yourself. After all, your social environment and relationships you share with others is a direct projection from the relationship you share with yourself.
The Taurus Full Moon may bring about this encouraging and inspiring connection that is going to motivate you to move forward with a project or idea which is bound to be successful. You can count on this month truly being one of abundance, offering both spiritual and physical gifts.
This is a great month to put more energy into your creative projects and ideas – you will receive the support you need, in both your connections with others and also through the spirit realm.

Happy solar return, Scorpio ♥
November is going to bless your life and change some things for the long-term. This may not be easy, and you might even feel it’s unfair at first, but these alterations are needed for something much bigger, and better, that will soon come to light – it may not be this month, but it will be soon so try and flow with it rather than resist.
You may even feel that November is testing you, as many of the planets hold your sign in the spotlight, especially Mercury being in retrograde for most of the month. During the Full Moon you may get a vision of some new idea, or something that is to come, and it could be entirely different than where you think you are headed and right when you feel comfortable with how things are going. Again, flow with it. Neptune going direct is waking up many of the signs with cosmic downloads of what really must be done, and it’s affect on you completely changes up your sense of desire and direction.
Creatively, this is a great month for you to bring out your art supplies, or to fall back into a spiritually or artistically inspired hobby.

Happy solar return, Sagittarius ♥
You are on fire this month – and not just because you are a fire sign – but because you are magnetic, and others are drawn to you like moths to a flame. You may feel pulled in many different directions as everyone wants your attention, and while you might be enjoying it, you do need to be mindful with whom you spend your time with. While you did receive quite a lot of positive cards for the month, there does seem to be some indication for an overindulgence in that goodness and a tendency to be a bit impulsive. With that said, think before you act, and think of the long-term affect something with momentary enjoyment may have.
You may also be working on a group project this month, or perhaps are receiving support from your peers on something you are working on alone. Whatever it may be, know that it is bound to be successful. This is also something which may be connected to your higher purpose, or a goal you have had for a very long time, and now the timing is finally right to go ahead with it.
This is also a very fast-paced month for you. While Mercury is retrograde for most of the month, which can make time feel as it had slowed down, for you it is entirely different, and things just whirl through. So, pay close attention and catch the opportunities before they pass you up.

Capricorn, you have been working hard and there is a lot going on in your life currently, and you are only human – take a break. You need to start taking better care of yourself otherwise you could risk a burn out.
The thing is, you want to give your all to the ones you love, and you want to go above and beyond to prove yourself to them. You have a noble cause to exert so much energy into, but, you cannot do this if you are not feeling your best.
November is an extremely karmic month which is putting a lot of the other signs in alignment with their higher paths, and you are no different, Capricorn. There is a lot of sacrifice that is called for this month, but it is all for the right reasons. Your dreams may be more intense and your intuition is much stronger this month as well, your empathic abilities are also heightened, and so you need to ensure that you leave yourself some space to find your center and take care of your spirit amongst it all.

Talk about an overload of abundance, Aquarius. You have done the work, and you have earned it. The past few months have been difficult with the shadow work, breaking cycles, and having major wake-up calls on negative habit patterns. While it hasn’t been easy, it has led you to a place of feeling that you are on the right path this month – it has all led you to where you will find that you are in a good place, you feel good about yourself, and you feel good with where you are going.
You may be quite popular as well this month, and while you are receiving a lot of kind compliments and loving affection, you need to be mindful with who you keep in your social circle. Someone might have ill intentions or selfish motivates to try and butter you up. While you are someone who doesn’t sway to this kind of thing, it might be tempting, and so just be cautious and don’t allow the shower of compliments get to your head. You also can be a sucker for a sob story at times, especially when it triggers your humanitarian nature, you can be sympathetic, but also make sure you are still detached enough to offer the critical and powerful advice you are so famous for.
November also inspires passion into your life – you feel more alive in your creative hobbies and artistic crafts. This would be an excellent month to indulge in your creative expression.

You might have to keep something to yourself this month, and as much as it’s eating up at you inside, you can’t spill the beans just yet. Still, you worry and wonder what could be if you just expressed your truth – however – there may be consequences to this truth that you are not ready to deal with, as they could bring about life-changing reactions.
In the recent months you had endured quite a bit, Pisces, and it was really difficult in navigating through it all. You had to let someone go that was more toxic than you realized, and this may have also brought about a new habit of your own which might not be that healthy either. You have realized this, and in this month, you are working on bettering yourself and breaking out of the spell that past few months had entrapped you in.
Your ruling planet, Neptune, which also has to be within your sign, is going direct on the 27th, and so this serves as giving you a massive wake-up call and forces you to face a truth which may be quite uncomfortable, and while this truth can set you free, you still feel trapped because you have to keep it to yourself for now.
