Need more proof of divine timing? The Sun moves into mysterious, witchy Scorpio just in time for spooky season, face-to-face with any obsessive thoughts lurking beneath the surface. But don’t forget the thrill of this enigmatic water sign… Wanna wear a corset to Starbucks? Cat-eye makeup on a Monday? Flirt with a cute stranger on the subway? All is fair game during the season of pleasure, intimacy, and shadow work.
We’re cooking with a lot of fixed energy this month… signs that rule quality control, will power, and stubborn resolve. Where are you resisting change? How can you begin to set yourself up for success in the new year?
The month begins with a New Moon in Scorpio, putting our emotional bodies on edge... (hopefully after last month's Mercury retrograde in Libra you’ve addressed any loose ends in love). Are you ready to move forward with a deeper sense of intimacy, or are you playing out old wounds? If so, you may tango with shadow work as Scorpio brushes the edge between vulnerability and self-destruction.
The highroad offering is, “What’s holding me back from being vulnerable with loved ones? Where can I lean into trust?” Nothing is taboo to Scorpio, and it’s a great time to explore your bandwidth for giving and receiving pleasure.
November builds up to a Full Moon in Taurus, with the focal point being pleasure & purging. What feels good? What’s no longer working? This is a great time to refine your priorities and relinquish control. Not always easy for the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius).
When in doubt… just ask! There’s a brooding, molten quality to the first three weeks of November without much fire to jumpstart our intentions… But with plenty of air to get stuck in our heads! Pay attention to the quality of your thoughts, as this could quickly become a recipe for overthinking. Scorpio energy can internalize the slightest change in behavior or communication, but this is your reminder to not take anything personally. We’re all going to be in our feelings this month! Let it play out.
Just as soon as we’ve switched to an all-black attire, Sagittarius season bursts through on November 22 with a breath of fresh air. This philosophical, adventurous, no filter firecracker energy will break the spell of tantalizing Scorpio in favor of some important reality checks. Circle back on the goals you set earlier this year. Recommit to your big “why“. What drives you? Hold that vision steady and remember… Everything good in life happens when you’re living in your joy. Jupiter’s rulership is felt here, so be mindful of treating yourself vs. overindulging. Let’s call in radical joy so Capricorn season can make it happen next month.
