Your November 2020 Horoscopes Are Here!

Scorpio season is here, which means it’s time to turn inward

Scorpio season is here, which means it’s time to turn inward as we wade through Scorpio’s deep, reflective waters. The month ahead is a time to reconnect to yourself. This is when personal transformation may take centre stage in your life. It’s also a time when many people start to take inventory of the year that was, and the year that is just around the corner.

Mercury is also retrograde until November 3. The planet of thought and communication has been retrograde since October 13. This retrograde started in Scorpio and then slipped back into Libra. These few weeks may have brought important realizations to the surface for you. Sometimes people experience confusion or miscommunication during Mercury retrograde periods—but this isn’t because the planets are intentionally out to get you. Astrology is a symbolic, energetic shift.

Every Mercury retrograde period is an invitation from the universe for you to look at what may need to be done better moving forward: What needs to be fixed, cleared up, edited or cut out altogether? Once Mercury stations direct in Libra on November 3, you have the opportunity to implement any lessons or changes throughout the rest of the month.

Mars also stations direct soon, on November 13. The planet of action has been retrograde in its home sign of Aries since September 9. These past couple of months have challenged personal limitations, reminding each of us to be mindful about where we choose to put our energy.

Late November brings even more astrological impact when eclipse season kicks in. On Monday, November 30, the Gemini full moon coincides with a lunar eclipse, creating space for a new chapter in your life. Each of these dates will be turning points for you. You may feel like a veil is lifting and you have a new sense of clarity.

Read on for your individual horoscope to see what November has in store for your sign.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Your momentum is about to pick up, Scorpio. Maybe you already feel it: a sense that change is in the air, or a feeling that something is about to happen but you’re not exactly sure what yet. 

So far, autumn has had you catching up to yourself. It’s been a time to rest, reflect and redirect some of your efforts. If you have anything that feels incomplete or undone, try to wrap it up as best you can by November 13 when Mars, your ruler, stations direct. 

Once mid-November rolls around, you’ll be ready to move on to bigger and better things. Obstacles that have been standing in your way this year are starting to lose their power and you’re ready to move forward with renewed commitment and determination.

If you do one thing this month: 

Pick a project or task to complete by mid-November, especially if it’s something that’s been hanging around way longer than you wanted it to. Finish it off so that you can clear your mind of it and move ahead.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

There’s a lot of change in the air for you as 2020 closes out, Sagittarius. November brings some early stirrings of new possibilities for you. Stay open to your dreams and ideas this month. Follow what inspires and angers you. Notice what you’ve grown resentful of in your life—even if it was once something you held dear.

There’s a new chapter about to begin but what it all entails is still being worked out behind the scenes. You can feel yourself being pulled towards the unknown but you might not have words yet for what kind of future you are building for yourself. Don’t push for answers just yet. Trust in the process and take your time with where you’re at.

If you do one thing this month:

Take an hour to journal through your thoughts and feelings. Write down what feels exciting, confusing, scary and inspiring. Think of this journal entry as the start of a new roadmap for your journey.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Get ready, Capricorn: The universe is starting to push you out of your comfort zone. This is not to make you fall or fail—no, it’s to make you fly.

But in some ways, you might feel as though the aspirations you hold right now are so big as to be out of reach altogether. You can see potential but you might not feel like you can access it yet. 

Don’t worry: This isn’t the time to act upon anything major if you’re not ready. November is an incubation period for your next phase of fabulousness. Be patient with yourself and take it one day at a time. You’re sitting on some solid gold plans and you’ll know when the time is right to put them into motion.

If you do one thing this month:

Work on your relationship to courage: What can you do to feel more courageous and to take strategic, healthy risks in your life? 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You’re blazing your own trail this month, Aquarius. And it’s about time. You’ve been waiting for other people’s permission to do something that’s been yours for the taking all along. Now you’re starting to see that you can stand on your own. You’re figuring things out that would have overwhelmed you a year ago. You are growing, Aquarius, and the ways in which you are beginning to flourish are monumental.

Late 2020 could go down as a time where, years from now, you look back and realize this was a major turning point in your life. Your chance to take greater control over your destiny is here.

If you do one thing this month: 

Stop asking for advice. Challenge yourself to go one week where you don’t ask anyone else for their thoughts or opinions.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Get ready to move, Pisces. You’ve been working away quietly on some plans these past few months. You’ve questioned yourself sometimes, and wondered if you’re going in the right direction.

Clarity and confidence are about to return and you’ll soon have the answers you’ve been waiting for in regards to a big dream. Just remember that it’s better to make some kind of commitment than to continue to stay stuck between ideas or options. 

November encourages you to take the next step in solidifying a plan. It might feel scary at first to commit yourself, but once you eliminate other options you’ll be able to see that you’re on the right track.

If you do one thing this month:  

Take inspiration from a public figure you admire. What challenges did they face? What did they overcome, and how? What did it take for them to rise to the top? Choose one action or character trait you can emulate this month. 

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

A standard rule for Aries sun signs is the old adage “look before you leap.” That especially holds true for you in the first half of November. Your confidence is one of your greatest assets, Aries, but like anything else in life, it can do some serious damage if used in excess.

The astrology of November warns against letting your ego get the best of you. No matter how sure of yourself you are these days, it’s no excuse to hurt anyone’s feelings or run your opinion all over town. Be careful about getting carried away in the moment or blurting out the first thing that comes to mind. You can still be passionate and authentic while also being responsible and considerate.

If you do one thing this month:

Before you make that passionate Instagram post or send off that fiery email to your boss, ask yourself: “How would I feel if I were on the receiving end of these words?” 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You are in the zone this month, Taurus. The first half of November has you tuned into exactly what other people need to hear—and your graceful communication skills will help you stay honest and fair even when you need to deliver some tough love. 

If it seems like everyone is turning to you for advice these days, you’re not imagining things. Your powers of perception are strong, and your friends and colleagues turn to you when they need no-nonsense guidance and a listening ear.

By the second half of November, it’s time for you to turn some of that attention onto yourself. You’ve been giving a lot of your time and energy away to other people this year and it’s starting to catch up with you. You might start wondering whose feelings you’re carrying around—yours or everyone else’s. Make sure you take care not to carry around everyone else’s baggage.

If you do one thing this month: 

Plan some down time this month where no one is going to interrupt you. Carve out a few hours, or even a few days, where you can be alone to do whatever you want. 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Are you ready to change your mind, Gemini? The astrology of November is setting you up to go through some major paradigm shifts. 

Get ready to open to new ideas, beliefs and concepts as November hits. You’re moving into a period of maturation where you’re starting to realize some of the things you used to believe were so important are actually not the be-all-end-all you thought they were.

This kind of personal growth takes time, so don’t expect it to happen overnight. And don’t expect it to be crystal-clear right away, either. This month marks the beginning of some big decisions you’ll be making as we get into 2021—and those decisions will help you to take bigger leaps into your life’s purpose. 

If you do one thing this month:  

Develop your decision-making skills. Find a book or workshop that can help you become a more confident decision-maker and put the time into developing this part of yourself.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

There is a part of yourself you can no longer hide, Cancer. Throughout this past year, a piece of your identity has had to be put off to the side. It’s been a temporary move, but one that’s been challenging for you. The good news is that it’s time to stop putting yourself off. November is the month for you to dig deep and honour your whole being.

Get honest about how much time alone you really need to feel your best. Be upfront about what it will take for you to reach a certain goal this year, or to put your time into a hobby or side hustle that really matters to you. Stop putting off your dreams and start making them part of your regular routine.

If you do one thing this month: 

Come up with a new schedule for yourself—one that allows you to have time to pursue your passions. Guard your downtime and tell your friends and loved ones that your “me time” is non-negotiable.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

The focus for you this month is all about the homefront. Get back to your roots by focusing on what makes you feel most at home. Reconnect with old friends or family you haven’t spoken to in years. Organize your personal spaces and do some redecorating. Or pull out some old family recipes and treat yourself to some old-fashioned home cooking. 

If domesticity isn’t quite your jam, then at least put your energy into your self-care routines this month. Review your emotional hygiene and be real with yourself about how much downtime you actually take—and whether it’s working for you.

If you do one thing this month:

Do something this month that will help you get comfortable. Think: Comfort foods or comforting people or activities. Make it a priority to feel safe cozy and calm.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Mercury, your rule, stations retrograde on Tuesday, November 3, bringing forward some answers that may have been elusive these past few weeks. This is the time you’ve been waiting for if you’ve felt stuck and unable to take action on an important plan or project. 

Your inspiration is also running high throughout November, so try not to take on too much early on in the month if possible. You’ll want to have some room left to say yes to unexpected opportunities and new ideas that present themselves as the months unfolds.

If you do one thing this month: 

Keep your options open right now. Don’t plan everything down to the last detail: Leave some time on your schedule for spontaneity and creativity, too.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

November is a time to make pleasure a priority, Libra. You have a tendency to get caught up in what other people want, but right now it’s all about you. What do you want to do this month? How do you want your days to look? How do you want to feel on a regular basis? 

Explore your deepest desires. That thing you never make any time for? Go do that—especially if it makes you happy. Think about what your life would be like if you focused a little more on some simple, everyday pleasures and see what you can do to make those a reality.
