Playing host to the heart of autumn, the second to last month of the year ushers in an undeniably warm, festive, fun- and family-loving energy. Bridging the gap between pumpkin spice everything and peppermint anything, November brims with magical moments that are ripe for deepening your bonds and tuning into your intuition. The excitement-packed month manages to strike a tone that's equally introspective and jovial thanks to the sun's trips through powerful Scorpio and free-spirited Sagittarius.

Until November 21, the confident sun moves through magnetic fixed water sign Scorpio, urging us to embrace the darker side of life, to foster powerful bonds, and to swim in the deep end of our emotions. Then, from the 21st to December 21, the sun occupies mutable fire sign Sagittarius, which emphasizes adventure, learning, and truth-seeking. This water-to-fire moment offers up even more moments to be in our feelings and share them with others.

A few quick highlights of November 2021's astrology:

On November 4, Scorpio's annual new moon — as well as the sun — oppose game-changer Uranus in Taurus, leading to shake-ups and unexpected events.

From November 5 to 24, messenger Mercury finally moves forward through Scorpio after what feels like freakin' forever in Libra (thanks, retrograde), making communication and thinking more passionate and resolute. And from the 24th to December 13, its trip through Sag can make for a far more blunt, unfiltered, and exuberant tone.

Later in the month, we get our second eclipse season of the year. On November 19, Scorpio season's full moon comes at the same time as a lunar eclipse in its opposite sign, earthy, sensual, stubborn Taurus. This extra juiced-up full moon is a culmination point and an op to release what no longer serves you. But heads-up: It could be very emotional, and possibly difficult, because the fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Leo) aren't exactly comfortable letting go

Aries (March 21–April 19)

This can be a powerful month for making a play to earn more recognition on the job or to head down a more fulfilling professional path, Aries, thanks to social Venus moving ahead through your tenth house of career from November 5 until its retrograde on December 19.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

Almost no other sign rivals your homebodiness, Taurus, but with your ruler, social Venus, moving forward through your ninth house of adventure from November 5 to December 19, you might actually want to get out more this month.

Take advantage of any chance to learn and grow, which can also serve to bring you even closer to the people you care about the most.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

After weeks upon weeks moving through your fifth house of self-expression and romance, messenger Mercury, your ruler, is finally moving on and into your sixth house of wellness from November 5 to 24. As dizzying and fun, at times, the last couple months have been, you're ready to turn your focus to getting organized and even more on top of your routine as the year begins to wind down, and this transit can support you in doing just that. Share your struggles to focus on or find a mind-body practice that feels like its checking all the boxes, and you could be surprised just how many ideas come your way.

And while messenger Mercury moves through your fifth house of romance and self-expression from November 24 to December 13, you'll be even more creative and outgoing than usual, wanting to hit pause on work for impromptu get-togethers with friends, spontaneous road trips, or channeling joyful, heartfelt emotions into an artistic project. After spending lots of time pouring your energy into your home and nurturing bonds with loved ones, you definitely do owe it to yourself to have more fun now, right?

And while the confident sun moves through your third house of communication from November 21 to December 21, you'll enjoy even more ops to be the social butterfly you are.

And while the confident sun moves through your twelfth house of spirituality from November 21 to December 21, you could feel like you're more meditative, maybe even a bit reserved.
