Your November Health, Love, and Success Horoscope: What Every Sign Needs to Know
Here's what the planets have to say about every facet of your life in the month ahead.
It's November: a month for spending time with loved ones, snuggling up fireside, experimenting with comforting, indulgent recipes in the kitchen, prepping and decorating for all the holidays, and doing your best to stay present while planning to make the most of what's left of 2019. The eleventh month of the year was tailor-made for reunions, celebrations, and reflection.
November's vibes are all-too-perfectly in line with its astrological goingson this year: Until November 20, Mercury (the planet of communication) will be retrograde in transformative, deeply emotional, sexy water sign Scorpio, encouraging you to look backward before you can move ahead. The sun will also spend half of the month in Scorpio before moving into fiery, adventurous, no-filter, party-loving Sagittarius on November 22. That'll be the green light to revel in all of the glittery holiday gatherings! (Related: Astrologers Say Mercury Retrograde Is the Perfect Time to Use This One Makeup Product)
Scorpio and Sagittarius season—the first, encouraging you to identify and swim in the depths of our most intense feels and the second, urging you to be unapologetically yourself while seeking new experiences—come together to encourage transformative exploration of self, relationships, and life. The water-to-fire energy is a steamy one that can illuminate better emotional and psychological understanding of your wants and needs, and then empower you with the fuel, fearlessness, and bold vision to make them real.

But Mercury retrograde and the sun's journey through the signs of the scorpion and the archer are far from the only headline-makers this month. Here are a few other planetary highlights you'll want to take note of:
- November 1 to 25: Venus, the planet of love, money, and beauty, moves through Sagittarius, bringing a need to learn, grow, philosophize, expand your mind, and experience more of the world in order to express yourself creatively and connect with romantic partners and friends.
- November 12: The full moon in steadfast, sensual Taurus forms a sweet trine to both transformative Pluto and taskmaster Saturn, which are both in fellow earth sign Capricorn. It'll inspire you to make definitive plans and put in the work necessary to close chapters that aren't serving you and forge promising paths that will.
- November 19 to January 3: Mars, the planet of action, energy, and desire takes a trip through Scorpio, infusing fitness and professional plans with razor-sharp focus, intensity, and deep-rooted emotion.
- November 20 to December 9: Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation, and technology, ends its retrograde and moves forward in Scorpio, coloring self-expression with mystery, passion, and a fixed perspective for the second time this year. (The first was from October 3 to 31.)
- November 25 to December 20: Venus shifts into Capricorn, setting a more serious, pragmatic, tradition-loving tone when it comes to socializing, romance, self-care, and moneymaking.
- November 26: The new moon in Sagittarius meets up with Jupiter, the planet of luck, making this an ideal time to set intentions, connect with the people you love, and embrace any urge to express how you feel in an effusive, direct way.
- November 27: Neptune, the planet of dreams and spirituality—which tends to cloud rational thought—ends its retrograde and moves forward in escapist, artistic Pisces. Think back on any reality checks you've had over the past five months, and thoughtfully apply those lessons in the days and weeks ahead, especially in moments when it's tough to decipher what's real from what's not.

Aries (March 21–April 19)
Health: When dreamy Neptune, the planet of dreams and spirituality, ends its retrograde in your twelfth house of spirituality on November 27, you'll have a solid idea of what might be holding you back from hitting your wellness goals. Continuing to recognize and explore this through mind-body work (like talk therapy or journaling) can support your efforts.
Relationships: Thanks to action-oriented Mars' move through your eighth house of sexual intimacy from November 19 to January 3, your most passionate desires will likely be at the front of your mind. That doesn't necessarily mean you're willing to share them with any random app match or even your S.O. But once you're feeling seriously connected, you'll want to take exploration of your wildest fantasies to the next level.
Career: From November 25 to December 20, social Venus moves through your tenth house of career, empowering you to make new professional connections or work with existing ones to tackle a creative project. This can also be a particularly fortunate time to sit down with higher-ups to discuss big-picture dreams, which could lay the groundwork for recognition and success.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Health: Around November 12, the full moon in your sign might have you feeling aggravated if it feels like you've put your favorite fitness activities on the backburner for too long. Map out a definitive game plan for prioritizing those morning runs or yoga classes—getting to work, even in a simple way, can serve as a powerful morale-booster.

Relationships: Let's be honest, you're a creature of habit; however, you might find yourself craving opportunities to explore uncharted terrain with your S.O. or a potential partner while romantic Venus moves through your eighth house of sexual intimacy from November 1 to 25. Whether it's a road trip or taking a challenging workout or meditation class together, the experience could turn out to be straight-up transformative for you and your bond.
Career: While communicator Mercury moves backward through your seventh house of partnership until November 20, you'll do well to revisit and revise an ongoing project you've been working on with a colleague or business partner. Finding new ways to lean into one another's strengths can make for a bomb end result.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Health: Because Mercury retrograde is happening in your sixth house of wellness until November 20, you might have to make peace with your go-to workout routine being thrown out of whack. Do your best to see it as an opportunity to get back to basics (hike that trail you've always loved) or switch things up (try your neighborhood spin studio). That'll help you streamline, preempt stress, and feel like you're on track.
Relationships: Around November 26, the new moon lights up your seventh house of partnership, making one-on-one time with someone special your priority. Feel like you're missing out on the level of companionship you're wishing for? This new moon was made for reflecting on ways you might be able to open up even more and manifest that ideal level of connection.
Career: Once mystical Neptune ends its retrograde in your tenth house of career on November 27, you might want to consider any professional wake-up calls and related lessons you've had to face over the past five months. Applying what you've learned could be particularly enlightening as you work to pursue long-term professional goals.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Health: Around November 26, the new moon in your sixth house of wellness presents a prime opportunity to narrow your focus on a realistic, motivating fitness goal. Whether you've been wanting to get back to swimming or sign up for a yoga teacher training, you'll have the clarity and pragmatism to plot your course and get on it.
Relationships: You'll want to be extra playful and spontaneous with someone special from November 19 to January 3, as go-getter Mars moves through your fifth house of romance. Your sexual and creative energy will be amplified in a wild and wonderful way. Owning it can make for magical results that are all too befitting of the holiday season.
Career: Around November 12, when the full moon is in your eleventh house of networking, you'll likely focus on working with colleagues or friends toward a shared aspiration. Feeling like you're part of something bigger—an effective, supportive community—can be truly satisfying and productive now.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Health: While beauty-loving Venus moves through your sixth house of wellness from November 25 to December 20, your fitness routine can feel even easier if you're a.) being social and b.) sneaking in self-pampering. Maybe that looks like taking a HIIT class, then doing brunch with your besties or going for a morning run with bae, then getting a couples' massage. You deserve to treat yourself in healthy ways on the regular!
Relationships: You'll be right in your fiery, fun-loving element when it comes to matters of the heart while Venus moves through your fifth house of romance from November 1 to 25. Don't be surprised if you're feeling more expressive and maybe even a bit more dramatic than usual. You're just craving cinematic, emotional moments—and your positive outlook can make you a magnet for them.
Career: Prep yourself mentally to be in the professional spotlight around November 12 when the full moon is in your tenth house of career. Whether you're applying for a new position or being recognized for your hard work by a higher-up, all eyes are on you— which, admittedly, can feel like a lot of pressure, but also set you up for a thrilling outcome.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Health: You might have the tendency to get a bit scattered and intense in your approach to wellness while action-oriented Mars transits through your third house of communication from November 19 to January 3. One minute you might want to go all-in on reiki classes, the next you're considering a whole foods-based cleanse. While you're pumped to learn and experience everything you can, you'll do best to focus on whatever feels right intuitively, then see it through.
Relationships: Venus moves through your fifth house of romance from November 25 to December 20, infusing your closest bonds with lighthearted joy. The more open you can be to impromptu meet-ups, last-minute dates, and letting go of concrete plans, the more satisfied you'll be by the results of this sweet, pleasure-packed transit.
Career: Mercury retrograde in your third house of communication until November 20 could definitely feel stressful, because it can make it tough to stick to solid game plans and create confusion when interacting with colleagues and higher-ups. You'll do best to zero in on tying up loose ends and see delayed, aggravating situations as opportunities to work on mastering that deep breathing routine!
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Health: Once spiritual Neptune ends its retrograde and moves forward in your sixth house of wellness on November 27, you'll feel like you've gained clarity around your everyday fitness strategy. You may have faced tough realities over the past five months, but as you move forward, being honest with yourself about these lessons can help you lock down the results you're looking for.
Relationships: The theme of the November 12 full moon in your eighth house of sexual intimacy: balancing your needs with your S.O.'s or a potential partner's. This might feel daunting, especially given the emotional intensity of the moment. Just remember: You're wired to find the equilibrium in any situation, so this transit's challenge is right up your alley.
Career: While Mercury is retrograde in your second house of income until November 20, consider streamlining your operations on the job to preempt overwhelm or miscommunication. You might also get the chance to work with a former colleague or boss, or dive back into a project you put on the backburner.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Health: While social Venus moves through your third house of communication from November 25 to December 20, exchanging ideas and tips—on anything from yummy Keto recipes to must-try circuit training routines—with friends and colleagues feels stimulating and motivating. Simple conversations could end up powering up a gratifying approach to your wellness.
Relationships: You'll be exploring exactly what you need from your closest one-on-one bonds around November 12 when the full moon is in your seventh house of partnership. You might be realizing the value of hard work and self-awareness, as well as allowing intense emotions to lead to transformation, all within the context of intimacy and companionship. It's sure to be a deeply emotional moment, but it also could be a game-changer.
Career: Around November 26, the new moon in your second house of income could set the stage for getting after a longtime moneymaking goal. You'll want to be realistic about what you can achieve, but your optimism is also at an all-time high—and you can absolutely use it to fuel your success.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Health: You might feel like making a bold decision related to your daily routine around November 12, when the full moon is in your sixth house of wellness. Whether it's striving to get more Zs, squeezing in a midday workout, or skipping inflammatory foods, you can trust your gut and commit fully to whatever it's telling you now. Once you get the ball rolling, you'll feel more centered.
Relationships: From November 1 to 25, romantic Venus makes its way through your sign, turning your attention to pleasure-seeking in all forms. You'll yearn for flirtatious, joyful interactions that bring you spiritual and sexual fulfillment. Thankfully, you won't need to work all that hard for it; your bright, bold nature is amplified now, making it even easier to attract whatever it is you're seeking.
Career: Around November 26, the new moon falls in your sign, offering up your annual, super-powerful chance to set intentions that can help you make your big-picture dreams a reality. Take a step back and separate what you think you should pursue from what you actually want in your heart of hearts. Then, pursue the latter, you'll be well on your way.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Health: Thanks to beauty-loving Venus' move through your sign from November 25 to December 20, you'll want to elevate your self-improvement and your self-care all at once. It's an ideal time to explore wellness strategies you haven't tried before, like acupcunture or mindfulness meditation. You might be surprised how feel-good, mind-body practices enhance your existing, gung-ho routine.
Relationships: If your work-life balance has been off (a typical Cap conundrum, as you're generally going full-throttle with work), you'll crave chill downtime with people you love around November 12, when the full moon is in your fifth house of romance. Taking actual time off to get away with your S.O. or spending an evening flirting with a new match can feel like the rejuvenating moment you deserve.
Career: It might feel like you're having constant random run-ins with college besties or former coworkers while Mercury is retrograde in your eleventh house of networking until November 20. It's not entirely random, though, as reconnecting with people from your past might lead to an unexpected collaboration or community project. No matter what transpires, leaning on others—and deciding how they should lean on you—can feel restorative and fruitful now.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Health: Family issues might take precedence over work projects (or even your fitness routine!) around November 12, when the full moon is in your fourth house of home life. Finding ways to take care of yourself and manage stress (like prioritizing a morning yoga practice or taking adaptogens) makes it easier to navigate this intense moment—and could even preempt running yourself down emotionally and physically.
Relationships: While romantic Venus moves through your eleventh house of networking and friendship from November 1 to 25, your calendar might be even more packed than usual with parties, work events, and hangs with your BFFs. If you're single, you might meet someone intellectually-stimulating and intriguing. If you're attached, spending time out and about with your S.O. can give you the opportunity to socialize as a team, which could be a satisfying way to bolster your connection.
Career: After November 27, dreamy Neptune ends its retrograde in your second house of income. You might want to look back on the last five months and pinpoint any key lessons you've learned about earning, budgeting, and spending. Keep them in mind as you make your next moneymaking decisions, and you'll feel like you're on solid ground, even when you're dealing with uncertainty.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Health: Pay extra attention to the simple, minor aspects of your wellness plan while information-gathering Mercury is retrograde in your ninth house of higher learning until November 20. Maybe you want to work on your hydration or read up on sleep hygiene. Developing a better understanding of and improving these basic building blocks now can make your fitness approach even stronger going forward.
Relationships: Between emails to answer and bills to pay, you might feel burned out by all the everyday to-dos on your list around November 12, when the full moon is in your third house of communication. Do your best to check off as much as you can, so you can chill with your S.O. or a promising match. Giving yourself a break—especially one that involves witty banter and lots of mental (and physical!) attraction—feels super fulfilling.
Career: You'll feel like it's time to get clear on how to take your professional path to the next level around November 26, when the new moon is in your tenth house of career. You can't aim too high or dream too big now, as the moon forms a harmonizing trine to expansive Jupiter. Let your imagination run wild, then key in on a doable action plan. You'll be refocused and reinvigorated.
