Welcome to Scorpio Season, your annual trip through life’s intense themes. You know, death and rebirth, power and control, sex and intimacy — all the things we’re told not to talk about in polite company. As an emotionally driven sign, Scorpio helps us explore our psyche, our shadows, and even our obsessions. Each year, when we go through Scorpio’s necessary passage, we are changed in some way.
This Scorpio Season will be a little different because Jupiter recently showed up for a year long stay. With Jupiter in Scorpio, you could say, almost like an old marketing slogan, SCORPIO, NOW WITH EXTRA SCORPIO. Because that’s what Jupiter does. It gives us more of whatever sign it’s in and now it’s giving us more of Scorpio. (Haven’t you noticed how suddenly everyone’s dirty laundry is now public knowledge?)
With Mars, the ruler of Scorpio, in Libra all month long, much of Scorpio Season will touch on how we interact with other people — namely our intimate relationships. We may be dealign with deep issues around trust, power, and control with a partner. Seeing how Scorpio is a money sign, too, finances may be a hot topic with a partner.
Note that Scorpio Season will bring us to the opening square to August’s eclipses. With the Sun, Jupiter, and Venus coming up to eclipse degrees, events this month as well as into December may directly touch on events from August. The new moon on November 18 in particular will set off the August 21 solar eclipse, which may bring events later this month that feel fated or major in some way.
Lastly, Neptune will turn direct on November 22 at 11 Pisces, saturating the later part of the month with sensitivity. Neptune is the great heart opener, connecting us with events that tug at our emotions, our compassion, and our understanding that we’re all one. Although Scorpio can be a little cynical, connect to the love and the magic of Neptune this month. And, of course, be careful not to get ensnared in Neptune’s illusions.
Read for your Sun and rising sign.

March 21–April 19
Libra Season may be over, but relationships are getting a second look. In fact, with Mars pulling into Libra just before the start of November, you’re feeling a big push to negotiate, compromise, and partner up. Here’s the thing, Aries. You’re naturally hardwired to take the lead, but relationships can be a little bit of a weak spot for you. Be conscious of your interactions this month; they may be a bit charged or demanding. Pay attention to what others need from you. Use your Aries self motivation to check in with key people, from your romantic partners to the important people you relate to on a daily basis. Let’s not forget that it’s definitely Scorpio Season, which means be prepared for a real, no BS conversations this month. After all, Scorpio wants nothing less than soul-baring. It wants trust, intimacy, and a do-or-die attitude. That’s the level you’ll be interacting with people this month. With Venus facing off with Uranus on November 4, you may have a surprising or unexpected encounter with someone, a restless need to transform or leave a relationship. On the same day, a full moon will put a spotlight on stability. What’s anchored in your life? Are you anxious that there’s uncertainty around you, especially in money and relationships? Is trust a big issue? Full moons are provocative and this will will push your buttons. You will need to rethink and reevaluate some key areas of your life. You’ve been through so much change over the last few years, Aries, and this full moon will touch on the basics — food, money, shelter, the stuff you need. Having said all that, this will be a very psychologically driven month, one where you check in with your emotional health and take a second look at how you’re negotiating power dynamics in your life. It’s also worth noting that Scorpio is a money sign and with Jupiter also in Scorpio, you’ll be occupied this season with growing your wealth, client income, and any financial benefits that come via other people. Jupiter can be a little crazy with spending, so keep that in mind in case you need to stay on budget. Lastly, you’re coming up to the end of a two and a half year journey where you’ve had to seriously define what faith means for you as well as how you see the world and what you believe in. November and December may bring a report card on your progress as Saturn prepares to leave Sagittarius for Capricorn. More on that next month. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.

April 20–May 20
Let’s talk about relationships, Taurus! Because November is the time in your personal calendar when the sun shines on your relationship sign of Scorpio. Did you know that Scorpio was your relationship sign? (I know, it explains a lot.) As much as you like to keep things even keel, you’re attracted to Scorpio’s edgy, intense energy. So here’s the thing. One, this is actually a big time for you and partnerships. Jupiter, the planet of making things extra, will be in Scorpio, your relationship sign for the next year. And Jupiter can either manifest as a time when you’re growing through your connections to other people, including romantic partners, experiencing new opportunities to meet people if you’re single, or needing freedom from a current relationship. (Think back to October 10 when Jupiter arrived in Scorpio. Did anything start to shift in your relationships around then?) Generally Jupiter brings an energy of bounty and abundance … but it’s bringing an abundance of Scorpio, a sign known for its emotional intensity and bracing honesty. (Lol.) Now for my second point. Much of the energy this month will point to Libra, which happens to be the sign that teaches you about work, health, and organization. So here’s how I think a lot of November will break down for you. Even if things are rosy with your one-on-one connections, even if you get along great with people, you’re doing your relationship homework this month. You’re cleaning up any interpersonal messes. You’re examining and discerning the power dynamics of your partnerships. You’re healing old relationship issues, especially any thorny emotional issues around trust, abuse, shame, and control. The Taurus Full Moon on November 4 will put you and these issues into the spotlight. Something has to change and evolve; full moons have a habit of forcing the issue. Here’s another thing to keep in mind — Saturn. After two and a half years of digging into your deepest depths of your psyche, forcing you to face your fears, and completely transform yourself in tangible and not so tangible ways, Saturn is coming to the end of its journey through Sagittarius. Which is to say you’re used to this psychological heavy lifting by now; you’re used to this intense examination of power, money, currency, and exchange. This month you may get a report card or feedback on the work you’ve been doing over the past two years. On December 19 Saturn will say goodbye to Sagittarius and arrive in Capricorn, triggering a new phase of life where you’ll be focusing on education, travel, and working out what you believe in and how you see the world. More on that next month. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.
Key Themes: Relationships, other people, partnerships, one-on-one connections, socializing, intimacy, trust, vulnerability, deep emotions, emotional health, you, freedom, breakthrough, breakdown, health, wellness, taking care of the body, work, schedule, getting organized, projects, spiritual health, dreams, the unconscious, retreat, letting go.
May 21–June 20
The spotlight is on health this month, both physical and spiritual. After all, Scorpio Season is the time in your personal calendar when the Sun shines on how you take care of your body, what you eat, and how you organize your day. With Jupiter now in Scorpio for the next year, you may be inspired to start a new fitness plan or change your diet in beneficial ways. As for your spiritual health, it’s also a good time to look at how everything is connected and how spiritual and emotional health mirror the physical. This month may also bring in a new project, one that is linked to your career or your ambitions for moving forward. Seeing how Mars is in Libra this month, whatever projects you’re working on, whatever movements you’re making professionally to get ahead need to include creativity. Here’s the thing, Gemini. For all this talk of work and health, at the heart of this month’s astrology is you allowing yourself the freedom to express who you are and show the world your talents and your skills. That said, you may have to shed something in order to move forward. The full moon on November 4 will point to breaking patterns of addiction, negative attachments, and anything you stubbornly hold onto emotionally — anything that’s psychically and energetically impacting your physical health. Emotions can be toxic, even the ones we don’t want to acknowledge about ourselves, the ones that creep into dreams and anxieties. Use this month to do a purge because it will help you get more into the truth of who you are so you can really express yourself and your creativity. The new moon on November 18 will be a good time to set intentions for your health going forward, almost like an early look at new year’s resolutions. Use the first half of November to clean house. Looking to Saturn, it’s important to note that you’re coming to the end of a nearly three year period where you’ve had to do a lot of heavy lifting in relationships. Saturn shows us where our major work is and since the start of 2015, yours has focused on how you interact with others as well as how you partner, compromise, and create lasting connection. If relationships have historically been an area that needs attention, you’ve certainly had your work cut out for you. True, this time may have coincided with the beginning of a major committed partnership like marriage … or the end of a major relationship. This month as well as the next may bring a review, a report card of sorts on your progress. Keep in mind, you entered a new season of life back in 2015, one that will be centered on the world outside of yourself — your relationships, your beliefs, your career. This season will take you well into the next decade. For now, you’re wrapping up a chapter this month. Come December 19, when Saturn arrives in Capricorn, you’ll be turning your attention to forging stronger emotional connections and doing major work on themes of intimacy, vulnerability, trust, and power. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.
Key Themes: Health, wellness, how you take care of the body, diet, fitness, nutrition, work, organization, service, needs of others, daily responsibilities, tasks, spiritual health, the unconscious, dreams, letting go, endings, shedding old skin, retreat, recuperation, rest, identity, self expression, creativity, relationships, other people, partnerships, interpersonal skills, career, direction in life, professional life, recognition, reputation.
June 21–July 22
After all the wild ups and downs of the last few years, it’s a nice change of pace to not only have the Sun shining a light on Scorpio, your sign of passion, fun, and creativity, but Jupiter playing support as well. November is a reminder for you to return to the well of what replenishes you. What are the things you love to do in your spare time? What are your talents? The activities that fill you with joy? Although hobbies and passion projects may seem a little frivolous, they help feed your soul. And you could use it. With Mars down in your chart’s sector of home and family this month, you may be feeling a push to make changes in the home — changes that are a reflection of you and your personality. This could include redecorating, making home improvements, or even a move. Mars in this part of your chart is anything but relaxing, unfortunately, especially for a sign for whom the stability of the home environment is so important. (Keep in mind that your home base may be a little in flux until December 9.) Another way this astrology may manifest is an addition to the family in the form of a pregnancy or birth. Just a heads up. That said, the month kicks off with a full moon on November 4 that may bring some surprises or something unexpected. The full moon will also shine a light on friends, community, your place in the world, and your direction. With Uranus playing a starring role in the full moon, life may take you in a new direction this month. After all, Uranus is the planet of breakthroughs, breakdowns, shocks, awakenings, and radically new ideas. Then on November 18 a new moon will start you on a four week journey of taking a hard look at yourself and how you do relationships. What needs to evolve with a partner? How do your power dynamics need to shift? Speaking of relationships, starting in December, you’re going to be entering a major new phase in life, once that will have you taking a serious look at the people you attract in life. Mind you, you’ve been already doing major soul level work in the relationship department since 2008. When Saturn arrives in your relationships sign of Capricorn on December 19, the next two years will be all about building stronger connections, finding balance and harmony with existing relationships, or ending relationships that don’t have what it takes to go the distance. In the meantime you’re wrapping up with Saturn’s scrutiny over health, diet, and work. November may bring a report card of sorts on how you’ve made lasting and hopefully positive changes in how you take care of your body as well as organize and tend to the necessary details of daily life. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.
Key Themes: Fun, creativity, passion, self expression, identity, children, leisure, the home, living situation, changes in the home, instability in the home, family, emotional needs, inner life, your community, friendships, groups, allies, like minded people, social network, connection, your role in the world, the people you know, belonging.
July 23–August 22
Is it possible to be speeding up and slowing down at the same time? Scorpio Season is a time in your calendar when you naturally pull back from the world and spend time nesting, but Mars is pulling you around town and heating up travel. As a result, you’re having to juggle two very different needs, two very different vibes, so try to find some balance. First, let’s look at the home. Scorpio is the sign that forms the base of your chart; it’s your heart and emotional core. (Did you know that, Leo?) Which is to say that there’s a secret part of you that needs and feeds on emotional intensity. This is the time of the year when you reconnect with your inner circle, your trusted consigliere, your family or those who are like family. With Mars in Libra, your sign of communication, there may be a lot of back and forth happening between you and your inner circle. Secrets may be spilling out or you’re feeling a need to have real, raw, and authentic communication. You may feel a need to purge something that you’ve been holding onto for years. Because really, at the heart of this time, is for you to let go of the things that are no longer nurturing you. That said, from the internal we move look to the external as well this month. The full moon on November 4 will highlight career and the role you play in the world. With Venus, your career planet, making a tense opposition to Uranus, the full moon may bring a sudden or restless need to make a break from the direction you’ve been heading. You may be feeling an overwhelming push to play a new role, to take on new responsibilities, or leave old ones behind. If you’ve been wanted to reinvent yourself professionally, this is your full moon. With an emphasis on communication this month, you may receive unexpected news around the full moon as well. Two weeks later, on November 18, a new moon will help you turn over a new leaf in the home. You’ll be entering a lunar month, one that will take you into the middle of December, where you’ll be focused on the home. This period may bring a move, a change in your living situation, or an issue with family. Wrapped into the new moon are intense energies between Mars and Pluto. If you’ve got skeletons in your closet, you may be pulling them out — or digging them up — this month. We’re talking family secrets and all the other things we typically don’t talk about. November will also be a good time to do your psychological and emotional healing work. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.
Key Themes: Home, family, roots, emotional needs, inner circle, private life, inner world, family secrets, living situation, move, change in the home, expansion of the home, movement, travel, business, to and from, the neighborhood, information, communication, the mind, career, outer world, professional life, reputation, status, title, recognition, career change, job change.
August 23–September 22
Like your neighboring sign of Leo, you too are having to do a bit of a dance between spending time nestled at home and running around, hopping between destination and destination. How will you find balance? That said, Scorpio Season is travel season for you, a time when you feel the pull to explore your world far and wide. You may even have a major tripped planned or you’re spending part of the month very far from home. This is also a time in your personal calendar when education is highlighted, so if you can’t travel, you may be stretching your legs in other ways by taking classes, looking into more serious study, or taking in the information you need to power your life. The full moon on November 4 may bring a decision about some broader themes in your life — what you believe in, your faith, how you see the world. As mentioned before, with travel and education a big player this month, the full moon may demand a choice related to those areas. The next day, on November 5, your ruling planet will move into Sagittarius, highlighting a need to spend more time in the home or make emotional connection with the people or things that make you feel grounded and secure in the world. Moving ahead to a rather intense new moon on November 18, you’re entering a lunar month, until the middle of December, when there will be an intense focus on voice, thinking, and communication. Do you feel like what you have to say is valued? Are you being your true self? The coming weeks will demand that you evolve how you communicate with others. As a result, you may have to be more revealing, more open to sharing the more intimate parts of yourself. The good thing is that you have Jupiter helping you to open up more, your celestial ally for the next year. Zooming out and taking a look at a big picture influence, it’s worth noting that you’re coming to the end of Saturn’s heavy scrutiny over your home life as well as family responsibilities. Since 2015, you’ve had to do major work on the foundation of your life — work that may have brought a big move, a change in your family dynamic, or a need to get serious about the fundamentals you need in order to build your life. November as well as December may bring a report card of sorts, all in preparation for Saturn’s move into Capricorn on December 19. Starting then, you’ll be taking a serious look at how you express yourself, how you value your talents, and how you carve out your identity. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.
Key Themes: Travel, movement, transportation, the neighborhood, to and from, short trips, long trips, voyages, foreign travel, other cultures, education, classes, workshops, information, learning, higher education, worldview, beliefs, faith, truth, philosophy, religion, law, home, family, roots, living situation, inner world, inner circle, domestic life, emotional needs.
September 23–October 22
Is it hot in here? With Mars in Libra this month, things are heating up in your life. Normally Libra is known for being a peacemaker, but with aggressive Mars pushing buttons, you may find yourself being much more assertive than usual. (Hey, Mars is the god of war after all.) On one hand, Mars is great for helping you to get what you want. It inspires you to take action, to take the lead, and move forward. On the other, your interactions with others may be a bit pointed and with Venus moving up on a faceoff with Uranus on November 4, you may feel a restless push to make a break or a change in a relationship. That said, Scorpio Season is a time in your personal calendar when you turn towards your basic needs. You know, food, shelter, money. With Jupiter now in Scorpio for the next year, your wallet as well as the stuff you own is getting a lot of attention. This month you may feel a big push to make more money, buy the things you need to create stability in your life, and acquire necessary assets. The full moon on November 4 will light up your financial life and you may have to take a look or make a decision about a loan, debts, credits, and even the resources you have access to. With much of November touching on relationships, too, the full moon may bring something to a head with a partner, something that touches on trust, intimacy, sexuality, and facing your fears. Speaking of sex and money, Venus Venus arrives in Scorpio on November 7, dialing up the power and the charisma. Basically you’re holding a lot of the cards this month. But with great power comes great responsibility. And, at the end of the day, you’re a Libra and you really just want everyone to get along … but, if we’re being honest, you’re probably not going to be as accommodating this month. Having said that, keep an eye on November 13. Once a year Venus meets up with Jupiter, which can make for an auspicious day. Seeing how Venus and Jupiter are rendezvousing in your money sign of Scorpio, you may be living large that day, spending money, or making a big purchase. Additionally, you may be receiving needed help from others that day. Looking ahead to the new moon on November 18, you’ll be entering a four week period where money, value, relationships, and power are major themes. Something will have to change or evolve with a partnership, especially if there’s an unequal power balance. This new moon will touch on themes that came up during August’s wild eclipse season. If something happened then, there’s a good chance that that event or something related will resurface in the second half of November. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.
Key Themes: You, your personality, new beginnings, taking action, moving forward, renewal, aggression, bluster, gaining the upper hand, arguments, money, income, salary, stability, what you own, what you have, spending, resources, resources you share, finance, wealth, debt, benefits, credit, loans, legacies, estates, taxes, relationships, other people, power dynamics, transformation.
October 23–November 21
Happy birthday, Scorpio! Oh and look, you have a visitor. Did you know that Jupiter, the planet of new opportunities and growth, will be staying in Scorpio for the next year? Not a bad way to kick off your birthday and, as a result, you may be thinking big for your annual celebrations. (Jupiter loves to be extra.) But with Mars, your ruling planet, in Libra all month long, you may feel pulled behind the scenes or wanting to celebrate the day with low key extravagance. That said, you’ll start the month with relationships in the spotlight. With the full moon in Taurus on November 4, you may have a decision to make about a partnership or a connection. Something may have to end or break from the usual pattern in order to continue. Also, if you’re single and want to upend the status quo, the full moon will be a good time to let go any old BS, any old stories holding you back from connection. Then on November 7, Venus will arrive in Scorpio, giving your sign an extra boost. Venus in Scorpio is the femme fatale and, as a result, you may feel more dialed into style, charisma, and sexy flirtations — all of which could be a big focus around November 13 when Venus and Jupiter join up in the sky. Enjoy whatever gifts you receive that day! Then on November 18 you’ll have a new moon in Scorpio, giving you a personal reset for the year. Mars will make a powerful square to Pluto two days later, ensuring that the coming year for you will be one of major overhauls and transformations. It’s time to step into your power, Scorpio, but a square to Pluto warns that if you’ve misused your power in the past, the coming year will demand a reformation. (Pluto squares force us to look at the parts of ourselves we’d rather not own up to.) It’s also worth noting that, with August’s eclipse energy quite active this month, you’re at a crossroads, Scorpio. This month in particular may bring a milestone, a change in course, or a significant event that marks the year. And, with Jupiter in Scorpio, you’re feeling up to the challenge and open to exploring new territory. Lastly, you’re wrapping up a three year chapter where you’ve been working hard to build up your finances and make as stronger foundation for yourself. November as well as December will bring a report card on your efforts and it’s not a bad idea to sit down and reassess your money, using Jupiter’s opportunities to carve out a new path for personal wealth and power. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.
Key Themes: You, your personality, new beginnings, taking action, moving forward, renewal, transformation, the shadow, unconsciousness, rest, retreat, letting go, breaking additions, obsessions, power, other people, relationships, interpersonal skills, negotiation, making a break, breakthrough, power dynamics, equality, value, personal currency, money, income, salary, material stability.
November 22–December 21
How you feeling lately, Sag? Now that Jupiter, your ruling planet, is in Scorpio, you’re definitely surfing a much different vibe than, say, this past summer. Jupiter in Libra was a lot more social. But now you’re being pulled inward, into the quiet spaces. Jupiter in Scorpio is a retreat and a time for you to reflect on yourself, your life, and your spirituality. Let’s be real, Sag. You’ve been doing some heavy lifting over the past three years courtesy of Saturn in Sagittarius. And now that Saturn is getting to its final moments in Sagittarius, it’s a good time to reflect back on the last three years. What have you learned? How have you stepped into more responsibility? Made a name for yourself? Carved out your place as an expert or authority? Having said that, make sure you rest this month. (Although that may be hard with restless Mercury in Sagittarius.) The full moon on November 4 will put your health, diet, and work in the spotlight. You may have to make some changes in your daily life or radically think how your life is organized. The full moon will also highlight potential tension between you and a friend or within your community. Two weeks later, on November 18, a new moon will give you a reset, turning you once again toward the quieter side of life. Over the coming four weeks — the length of the lunar month — you’ll be shedding old layers, old additions, old emotions. Your dreams may be more active than usual and you my find your intuition increasingly heightened. But with Mars square Pluto factoring into the new moon, something deeply psychological may have to be purged, something that you may have been holding onto for quite sometime. Circling back to Saturn, note that the planet of growing up and becoming an adult will leave Sagittarius on December 19. You’re almost there! Come December Saturn will move into Capricorn and start you on a three year regimen of getting your finances in order and working towards understanding what true value is. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.
Key Themes: Retreat, rest, going within, spirituality, mysticism, the occult, the unconscious, dreams, confinement, cloistered, transformation, endings, responsibility, getting older, being an authority, higher standard, integrity, health, wellness, taking care of the body, fitness, nutrition, work, schedule, getting organized, service, spiritual health, emotions, memories, family, healing.
December 22–January 19
Capricorn, you’re starting to arc towards the end of your personal year. You’re in a reflective mood as you naturally take stock of your wins and losses over the last ten months while turning your attention toward the future. What do you want to create for yourself going forward? Where do you see yourself in a year? Or in five years? This is also the time in your calendar when the spotlight is on community as well as the role you play in it. In fact, Jupiter’s recent arrival in Scorpio means that this Scorpio Season may come with a lot of opportunities to connect to others, from networking to allying with the people that will help you get a leg up in the world. And it’s not just your friends and community getting a lot of bandwidth this month; Mars is heating up your career, too. November will be a reminder that in order to build something for the future, you need to do the work now. As a result, you may be very busy this month in your professional life taking on increased responsibilities and pushing ahead with your worldly ambitions. This is also a month when you’re likely to be spending a lot of time outside of the home. (Make sure you schedule some rest time in!) That said, the full moon on November 4 will put creativity and talent in the hot seat. You may get recognized for something that you’ve created or that is personal to you in some way, but it may mean stepping out in a new direction or making a break from the past. Two weeks later, on November 18, a testy new moon will set you up for a lunar month where you’ll have to take a hard look at your friendships, the groups you belong to, and your community. There may be issues around power and control to work through as well as the responsibilities that you and others take on within these groups. Something will have to change, reform, or evolve in order to continue. Speaking of evolution, your ruling planet Saturn is getting some big support from the planet Uranus this month. Don’t be afraid to break out of the status quo, innovate, and dream up new approaches to old problems. And seeing how Saturn is coming up to the end of its three year retreat inward, you’re tying up loose ends on a 30 year cycle. (Yep, you read that correctly.) Starting December 19, when Saturn arrives in Capricorn, you’re stepping into a brand new chapter of your life as well as beginning to move forward after three years of sitting still. Want to learn more about how the astrology of November will affect you? Book your consultation now.
Key Themes: Community, friends, social networks, belonging, looking ahead, the future, letting go, shedding old skin, career, the world, outer world, reputation, status, responsibilities, public life, professional life, recognition, ambition, self, creativity, self expression, identity, talents, performance, rebirth.
January 20–February 18
We’ve got some things to talk about, Aquarius. Namely the fact that your ruling planet, Saturn, is going to switch signs next month. This is a big deal because Saturn doesn’t move very quickly. (Think about it. Saturn is all the way out there in the solar system. It takes decades to go around the Sun. Then again, you’re a smarty pants Aquarius and probably already know this.) Since the start of 2015, Saturn has been in Sagittarius and your life has been oriented towards long distance travel, education, and getting clearer about what you believe in and how you see the world. Maybe you’ve gone on big trips abroad? Crossed long distances? Gone back to school? Or dealt with serious issues around faith? Sagittarius is also your sign of community and friendships and you’ve had to work hard over the last three years to build a place for yourself in the world, make new friends, and strengthen existing ones. November may bring a little bit of a review of all your hard work as you tie up this chapter of your life. So, what’s next? Come December 19 Saturn will move into Capricorn and you’ll be going behind the scenes over the next three years. Capricorn is a sign that helps you connect to spirituality, retreat, rest, and a deeper understanding of who you are. (More on that in next month’s update.) In the meantime, Scorpio Season points you toward career, your ambitions, and your professional life. With Jupiter also now in Scorpio, you may be seeing new doors open in your career or you’re getting an itch to make a career change. But before you can make any big moves in your professional life, you may have to go back to school or get specialized education. Mars in Libra will be motivating you this month to hit the books and explore new ideas and new ways of thinking. Travel may be on the agenda as well — especially travel for work or related to your work. For all the emphasis on your worldly life this month, the full moon on November 4 will light up the foundation of your chart and, as a result, you may have a decision to make about your living situation. This may be a time when you’re naturally planning to move house or make a change in the home. Family matters may bubble to the surface, especially something confrontational around differences of beliefs or opinions. Then on November 18 a new moon will give you a powerful reset in your career. Again, if you’re looking to make a career change or look for the next step in your professional life or reinvent yourself, November is your month. But it may mean giving everything a major rethink.

Hey, Pisces. How you liking your new Scorpio vibe? Oh, did you forget? Your ruling planet Jupiter moved into Scorpio back in October, which means that for the next year, you’re going to be expressing yourself through the energies of Scorpio — emotional intensity, sensitivity, rebirth, and an edginess that maybe you’re not quite used to. Pisces isn’t known for its attitude, but Scorpio is. So enjoy the ride for the next year. Note that Scorpio is your sign of travel and education. For the next year as well, you’ll be restless to explore the world, get out and travel, connect with other philosophies and ways of thinking. You may be looking to go back to school or get specialized training that will help you move ahead professionally. But the full moon on November 4 will get you back to basics. You may have a decision to make about your education or you’re feeling confronted by new thinking or something that rocks what you value. Don’t be afraid to open up to new ideas this month, even if it means changing the way you see things. Then on November 5, Mercury will move into your career sign of Sagittarius for an extended stay. Translation? You’ll likely be working very hard over the coming eight weeks, taking on new responsibilities, and recalibrating your ambitions and the direction you’re taking in life. With an emphasis on travel this month, it’s possible that you’ll not be at home that much. Instead, putting the hours in at work or riding to and from in a car, on a train, or even in a plane. Speaking of which, the new moon on November 18 will put travel into focus into December. You may be planning a major trip or looking to make a big move in your education. Ultimately this month is about you transforming how you see yourself and how you see the world. Additionally, Neptune will turn direct in Pisces on November 22, making you extra sensitive. Yes, as a Pisces, you’re already quite sensitive. But Neptune has been making you extra sensitive since 2012 and you may feel a little spacy or tired later this month. Make sure you give yourself some self care and quiet time alone if you’re feeling overwhelmed. Finally, I wanted to give you a heads up that come December there will be a major shift in the narrative when Saturn finally leaves Sagittarius for Capricorn. Since Sagittarius is your career sign, you’ve had to handle major responsibilities and get your act together professionally over the last three years. Saturn brings scrutiny and you’ve basically had to define what you want to be when you grow up — doesn’t matter if you’re 20 or 60 years old. So as Saturn wraps up its time taking a serious look at your ambitions and relationship with commitment and responsibility, November may bring a report card. Come next month you’ll start on a three year chapter where you’re building community and getting very clear about the sort of people you align yourself with. More on that in December’s horoscopes.
