Your November 2020 Horoscope for Health, Love, and Success
Here's what the planets have to say about every facet of your life in the month ahead.
With Halloween behind us and the whimsy of the holiday season in full sight, it must be November.
The last full month of fall brings the influence of two dynamic, bold signs. From now through November 21, the luminous sun makes its way through magnetic, razor-focused Scorpio, tuning into the sensual, spiritual side of life in a way that can feel truly transformative. And from November 21 to December 21, the confident celestial body makes its annual trip through gregarious, jovial, adventure-loving Sagittarius, urging people to bond in a big-hearted way while standing up and speaking out about our closest-held beliefs.
Scorpio and Sagittarius seasons — the first primed for bolstering intimacy and seeking rebirth, the second urging you to get out of your comfort zone — join together to make November full of self-reflection and connection, hidden truth-seeking, and unfiltered belief-sharing. This is a time to get in tune with what lies beneath the surface, hone in on the message that motivates you the most, then speak truth to power.
But the sun is far from November's only narrative. On Election Day, November 3, communicator Mercury ends its three-week retrograde in partnership-oriented and peace-seeking Libra, but don't be surprised if it takes a while for the planet of information and technology to get fully back on track. By November 10, and until December 1, it'll be moving through Scorpio, giving you another opportunity to investigate and share your deepest feelings. And on November 13, after being retrograde since September 9, go-getter Mars will finally push ahead in fiery Aries, allowing you to take concrete action and build momentum once more. Then, November 15 marks a transformative new moon in Scorpio, followed by a tough opposition between Mercury and game-changer Uranus in Taurus on November 17, which could amplify anxiety and set the stage for some curveballs, especially around communication and transportation. From November 21 to December 15, romantic Venus joins the Scorpio party, increasing the likelihood that you'll ruminate, infatuate, and get in tune with your sexual desires. On November 27, it opposes Uranus, too, setting the stage for abrupt changes in matters of the heart. On November 28, mystical Neptune ends its annual retrograde in dreamy Pisces, ending a five-month reality check and making it harder to separate truth from illusion once more. As the month closes out on November 30, say hello to the second eclipse season of the year when the lunar eclipse falls in mercurial Gemini, ushering in shake-ups and a sense of urgency to say goodbye to antiquated ways of expressing yourself, especially in relationships. (Read about what your moon sign means for your personality, as well.)

(Pro tip: Be sure to read your rising sign/ascendant, aka your social personality, if you know that, too. If not, consider getting a natal chart reading to find out.)
