Now that we have most of the planets out of retrograde and moving forward, it’s time to get to work! Retrogrades bring us a chance to review, reflect, and reassess. There’s a lot going on in the world around us and in our personal and professional lives. For several months we have been reviewing our restrictions and boundaries, digging deep beneath the surface to find the truth in many matters, fixing old habits that need to be tossed out the window, and even gaining new perspectives.
Now, the question is, what do we do with all of that to move forward? Well, I have great news! Mars is in Scorpio all month, which will help us stay inspired, take things head-on, and give us the energy to manage and go after our goals with consistency.
On Nov. 4, we have a Scorpio new moon which is inviting us to change—even if it’s uncomfortable; to dig beneath the surface and figure out what truly matters. It’s the perfect time to think about the things that make us feel excited and what brings value to our lives. It’s time to use our new perspective and see how it can advance us on our path both personally and in our careers.
We also have a partial lunar eclipse in Taurus on Nov. 19. This eclipse is here to help us open ourselves up to circumstances that have been holding us back from getting everything that we dream of. It will also allow us to sit with what we aren’t happy with, and give us the courage to embrace new opportunities with discipline and bravery. We might even come across something extremely important along the way!
Scorpio season is a great time to get a better understanding of the people we are in partnership with. It’s Scorpio that helps us find meaning with the people whom we are close to and work with. Sagittarius season will begin on Nov. 21, which will open up our minds to possibilities and allow us to explore what’s on the surface as well as what’s beneath it. It will help us gather all the information we need to accomplish our goals with optimism and enthusiasm; to have the capacity to see every possible angle, and explore it in ways we weren’t able to do before.

Happy birthday, Scorpio! It’s time to put yourself out into the world and get creative with your desires, letting them push you along in your journey. You want to make changes for yourself and trusting yourself will be key. If things feel impossible, talk to others that can help you find the missing puzzle piece. However, be mindful of how you assert yourself to others. Remember that others play a role in your life as much as you do, and it’s important not to judge them along the way. The change you want is coming, but you can’t do it solely on your own!
It’s time to tie up some loose ends when it comes to yourself and your future plans, Sagittarius. You have been working hard on many things, and the beginning of the month is the perfect time to make sure you are allowing yourself the time you need to rest before big changes come your way. It’s a good idea to communicate with others while you wrap up your plans, but see what happens when you listen more than you speak this month. Other people can help you see things from a perspective you may not have thought of. The end of the month will be the perfect time to start presenting your ideas to the world!
This month is an amazing one for you to network with others, Capricorn. You are more aware of your worth and what you’re putting your energy into. It might not be easy to express yourself, but if you stay in touch with your feelings and pay attention to your needs, that can take you far! It’s important that you also take your time with things so you can create long-term results that align with your hopes and dreams. If there are changes you want to make in your immediate environment, be sure you’re doing so with everyone’s best interest in mind. Your goals are important and they deserve to turn into something tangible!
You’re able to be extremely disciplined right now in order to achieve what you want in your career, Aquarius. This would be a great time to engage in new ideas and take advantage of opportunities that excite you. You can get a lot done this month, but you might find yourself feeling really critical of yourself—that’s ok! Take things slow. Focus on what’s most important and tackle those things first. You may want to consider talking it all out with those you work with—you could end up attracting the attention of someone important if you play your cards right!
You have a lot of expansive energy this month, Pisces. This is a wonderful time for you to open up your mind on all that’s of interest to you. Learning new things and digging into different topics might help you get a clear picture of what you want your life to look like going forward. This isn’t the greatest time for anything that involves discipline, so allow yourself to use your imagination and have fun along the way. If you’re happy, others will be happy, too. That alone could impact your career and help you pave the pathway to your dreams!
You have the energy to accomplish a lot this month, Aries. However, it is essential that you pump the brakes a little and work cautiously. Take your time with things so you ensure the results are long-lasting. Focus on what is necessary first and don’t sweat it if you can’t get to all of your ideas. When it comes to working with others, watch your ego and let them help you slow down in ways that are needed. Try to work at their speed instead of your own, so you can be more open to new ideas (and avoid conflict, too).
Now is a great time for you to engage in new activities and make new discoveries, Taurus. You’re likely feeling a bit bored when it comes to your everyday routine. Involve the people you are partnered up with to help you spice things up a bit. It will of course be important for you to act with respect so you don’t create unnecessary conflicts as you do so. Things need to change! And although change is a bit uncomfortable for you, these changes are actually practical and will bring you a much-needed shift to help your goals develop further.
This is an excellent time for you to focus your mental energy on your daily life, Gemini. You’re ready to make plans for the future but just because ideas are coming to you quickly does not mean they are attainable. Have conversations with people that you are partnered up with and pick their brains a little. Working with others on your ideas will help you see the whole picture! You have a lot of mental energy normally, and this month that’s especially true. Now could be a great time to solve puzzles of some kind so you can give your mind the mental exercise it needs.
It’s time to get excited about change, Cancer. Get creative and have fun doing it! It’s possible that you are gaining a new perspective when it comes to your home and/or work life; this will help lead you to change that brings an entirely new sense of value into your daily life, too. You’ve been doing a lot of healing and figuring out what your needs really are. Now, it’s time to go after what you want. That may not be the most comfortable thing for you, but try not to get frustrated. If you lead with your heart and act out of bravery, you’ll get exactly what you need!
You have a strong desire to understand on a deeper level this month, Leo. You could find yourself wanting to learn more about your own sense of security, where you come from, and what those things actually mean to you. Some things need to change and it would be a good idea to try and embrace these changes with excitement and open arms. If there are circumstances you aren’t happy with, now is the time to tend to those. Some important conversations may need to happen, too. Lean into your bravery and speak to others (and yourself) with as much compassion as possible.
You already have a broad understanding of most things, Virgo, but this month it will be important that you keep an open mind. Communicate to others all that you have been reflecting on, and allow them to offer new perspectives. This is also a wonderful time to appreciate what you have, and to tell others what you appreciate about them. You have high mental energy—use it wisely. Now is not the time to work too quickly and then run the risk of making errors (which you hate). Be creative and allow yourself to daydream, seeing what ideas come about as a result!
Now that you have begun a new year, Libra, this is a great time for making plans for the future. Your mind is sharp and you have a positive outlook, both of which are helping you see situations fully. It’s important to keep an open mind and to avoid impulsive thinking. Allow yourself time to turn inward so that you can achieve the goals you have set for yourself. This is an excellent time to focus on the foundation you are creating in your life. Try switching up your daily routine or redecorating your space; changing what’s around you can help spur change in other aspects of your life!
