November is when we sense the beginning of the end – and in many cultures it begins with ‘the day of the dead’, highly appropriate for a month largely associated with the sign of Scorpio. Does the November 2021 horoscope reflect that sombre start? Well, there are indications that it will be a Plutonic time, with the sign of Scorpio being fairly heavily occupied for most of this month – and things begin in this vein with the New Moon in this sign on November 4th.
A New Moon indicates new beginnings of some form – and in Scorpio any new beginning is likely to cause shockwaves of some kind. That may be especially so this month as the New Moon falls opposite Uranus – and is also in square aspect to Saturn. Yes folks, that tense Saturn-Uranus transiting square that’s been hanging above us all year is going to start making it’s presence felt once more as it builds up to next month’s final pass.
As if that’s not enough, we also have a special Full Moon in Taurus this month as it’s also a partial lunar eclipse. I’ll be writing a post on that lunation in due course so watch out for that. Meanwhile, Sit back and enjoy what November has to offer – this may be the month that makes a difference, one way or another… As usual, please read this horoscope for your Sun, rising sign – or both.
November 2021 Horoscope: Aries
As the month begins, the November 2021 horoscope suggests you begin to get the feeling that you’re going to have to make some big decisions. The planetary action in Scorpio is really triggering you Aries and, as you know, that’s not hard to do. It’s time to move life forwards – but what you may have to contend with over the next few weeks is the gap between your expectations and reality. Somehow, you’re going to have to bring those two poles together – and that’s your major challenge this month.
One issue you may be having is a tug of war between the urge to do something different and rebellious and being the responsible adult in the room. You’re conscious of how this may affect you financially – and socially too – as you want the freedom to do what you want to do, but feel restricted by what other people might have to say on the issue. At a deeper level, what’s happening is you’re experimenting with a new set of values and other people may have an issue with that. This month that process continues – so expect to deal with the fall-out for a while yet.
The Full Moon in Taurus on 19th November may bring this situation to a head. If you’ve been struggling to find an answer to this dilemma, you may have a lucky break that boosts your confidence and changes your outlook on life. Of course, we make our own luck and if you maintain a positive attitude this month, you may discover the answer to your question comes to you via your friends or social contacts. Someone out there is ready to tune into the new you – and it could work out for you financially too.
November 2021 Horoscope: Taurus
This month, Taurus, the November 2021 horoscope suggests that there’s a lot happening in your relationships. When we see a lot happening in this sector, it’s always tempting to talk about romance. However, this month with both Mars and Mercury here, it’s fair to say that some of you mat be having some vigorous debates with your nearest and dearest. However, it’s also true to say that your other half may be to one who is busy, angry and a little stressed out. You may be the one saying the soothing words this month – just don’t get used as a verbal punchbag if things get rough.
Of course, there is more to relationships than romance. This month, the New Moon shows there are some stresses between your own need for freedom and your work or career responsibilities. You may be feeling restless and a need for change (in fact that may be the source of the arguments) yet you know that won’t be easy to achieve. Some of you may feel as though you’re in a rut -and that’s frustrating. However, there is also the possibility that you will have taken on more responsibilities at work – and that may be causing you rather more stress than you thought it would too.
At the time of the lunar eclipse, there are real signs that you may come to some form of resolution. You may have a new opportunity in your career that may satisfy your need for something new. This may happen in your existing situation – however, it’s more likely that you will feel a little celestial push to do something constructive and pro-active about your current situation and that may involve a complete change to a line of work more in tune with your changing view of yourself and your own needs.
November 20212 Horoscope: Gemini
The November 2021 horoscope sees you having to take some action to get your life back under control. I’m not implying that your life is a train-wreck by the way, but if you feel that things have become a little de-railed in recent weeks, now is the time to take action and get things back on track. One thing you may notice as November begins, is a conflict between your desire to change the world (your bit of it anyway) and the feeling that your ability to do so is beyond your reach. That’s frustrating, so your challenge this month may be to address the lack of confidence that is getting in your way.
This is really emphasised at the time of the New Moon early in November, as that may signal it’s time for you to start looking at life from a different perspective. You may find that difficult at first, because there is something in you that is rebelling against your need to change your views. There may be events around this time that bring to light an unfortunate tendency to be your own worst enemy – and that may happen because you’re being a bit too stubborn and think you know best about something – when in reality it would be better to stop and take a second opinion.
By the time of the lunar eclipse – if you have really worked on those issues – you’re more likely to benefit from a much more optimistic mindset than you’ve had over recent weeks. Life is always easier when you’re in a positive frame of mind and, as the Sun and Mercury move into Sagittarius at the end of the month, this positivity is something that you will notice as your relationships benefit from your sunnier outlook. Sometimes all we need to do is look at things in a different light – and that’s this month’s message to you.
November 2021 Horoscope: Cancer
There is a chance that, this month, you may need to allow yourself to fail a little in order to discover what you really want out of life. Sometimes, we have to discover what we don’t like in order to appreciate the things that truly give us a sense of pleasure or satisfaction – and that may be something you need to get used to this month. The Scorpio emphasis is highlighting your most creative sector – so in reality, this month is about discovering what works for you and enables you to be yourself. Having to be something that you are not is not what this month is about.
In fact, if you’ve been suffering from ‘impostor syndrome’, now is the time to realise that you’re actually more talented and capable than you think you are. The New Moon at the beginning of the month really exposes the stress between your reluctance to make major, far reaching (and overdue) changes, and the discomfort you’re currently experiencing because you’re not sure where you fit into the world. If feeling like a fish out of water isn’t a sign you need to get back into your element, then I don’t know what is.
The lunar eclipse will bring these issues to a head – hopefully in a good way. The stress seems to evaporate because you suddenly have a much better idea about where you fit in. How does this happen? Well, it’s not by magic but because you’ve realised that the only way to work out the answer to a problem is to take charge of the situation. If you feel that you don’t fit into the world – then change your world to suit you. You’ll have the opportunity to do this as the month moves on – so grab that opportunity with both hands.
November 2021 Horoscope: Leo
For you Leo, the November 2021 horoscope shines it’s light on your home and personal life. The emphasis on Scorpio always infers that there are a few things to sort out and with Mars and Mercury in this sector, now is the time to de-clutter both your home and your private life. Getting things more streamlined is never a bad thing – even for a sign as emotional and dramatic as you. However, you may not find this an easy process as this sector of your chart is where you tend to hold on to things. The message this month may be that you need to let go.
The New Moon early in the month kickstarts the process of doing that as you become aware of the tensions between your career and your relationships. Of course, the relationships in question may be your working relationships as much as your personal relationships. You may have issues with either or both of these this month – however those issues may be positive as well as negative. For example, if you have shied away from committing to a relationship you may feel the urge to do so now – and that may transform how you are seen in the world as a new you takes place centre stage.
By the time of the lunar eclipse, you will feel the benefit from this more inclusive approach. In fact, your career and status is almost certainly going to work better if you’re in a partnership rather than trying to go it alone. It may be that you’ll benefit from moral support – or you may actually work better as part of a pair. However it works out for you, you will need to make the effort to reach out. Things don’t happen unless you make them happen – but if you make that effort you can expect some gratifying results.
November 2021 Horoscope: Virgo
The November 2021 horoscope suggests that November will be a busy month for Virgo – and that’s exactly how you like it. As a Mercury-ruled sign, you’re happiest when your brain is engaged – and this month, with Mars and Mercury in Scorpio, your mind will be in top gear. When you’re not communicating, reading, writing or catching up with friends and neighbours, you’ll be planning what to do next with the little spare time you have available – be careful you don’t pack too much into your schedule as even Virgo can try to do too much.
The New Moon suggests that you thrive on this mental intensity, but even you may begin to find hard work a bit of a drag. The problem is – as ever – a question of balance and this month you may find that it’s ‘all or nothing’ as you struggle to find a middle way between the demands of the job (which you love) and maintaining a grip on what could become a chaotic lifestyle. Breaking free of your old mindset that keeps you feeling obliged to do more than is necessary is one way of doing it. You can only do so much – so focus on the essentials and the rest will take care of itself.
When the lunar eclipse hits town you’ll discover that this was good advice, as our attitudes often hold us back. Dealing with the rigours of everyday life will not seem half as bad as it did earlier in the month as you will have managed to get things under control. Work will also seem more enjoyable – and you may have the opportunity to take on an interesting new project. The great thing is that this will be because you want to and not because you feel you have to do so. Enjoy it while it lasts.
November 2021 Horoscope: Libra
For Libra, the November 2021 horoscope suggests a month where you’ll be focused on your resources. Whether it’s the contents of your pay packet, or the time and energy you have available to do the things you feel you need to do, as the month begins you are becoming aware that what you have is either not enough – and that may be more than financially. You don’t seem to be getting the most out of life and the active collection of planets in Scorpio are telling you that something must be done about that – and soon.
At the time of the New Moon early in the month, you begin to feel this pressure most of all. You may feel as if you’re simply going through the motions and whatever you do, you don’t seem to enjoy it. So, what can you do to reinvigorate your enthusiasm for life? One problem may be that your expectations are unrealistic. As a Libra you like things to fall into place – and when they don’t it sometimes takes you by surprise. You can control things more than you think so if you need to overhaul the way you use your resources, or even how you value yourself, then do it.
By the time of the lunar eclipse you would be advised to engage with that process. Sometimes we need a radical re-appraisal of where we are in life – and that may be this month’s message to you. It may seem as if you’re being asked to do something revolutionary, but the point of the exercise is to get you to enjoy life again – and that’s worth the investment of your time and effort. We only get out of life what we put in and you may need to put in a little more than you have been doing. Do that, and you’ll find the opportunity to enjoy yourself comes knocking on your door.
November 2021 Horoscope: Scorpio
This is your birthday month Scorpio so what does the November 2021 horoscope have in store for you? The focus in on you this month and with Mars and Mercury in your sign, you’ll be feeling more physically and mentally energetic than usual. You may feel as though you can take on the world – but you may also need the extra boost that the stars have given you this month as you deal with the tension that may erupt between your family responsibilities and a partner who – this month – seems to be a bit crankier than usual.
What seems to be at the heart of the matter – and this will become apparent at the time of the New Moon – is that your partner wants to shake things up a little. This is not necessarily a bad thing, however, as the indications are you may have fallen into a rut (as many of us have during such challenging times). The issue you may have is that you now feel secure in your routine – and you may be apprehensive about venturing out into the world now that you’ve become established in that fortress you call home. You may also have family responsibilities and that may cause friction between you too.
By the time of the Lunar Eclipse, you may discover a working solution to the problem. If you don’t feel happy going out into the world – then let the world come to you. In truth, you’ve been missing the people you love, so now seems like a good time to invite guests into your home and re-kindle the relationships that have been missing from your life for too long. Some of you may also develop itchy feet and decide that some time away would be a good thing after all. If you can find a ‘home from home’ this month – that would be perfect. Sometimes you need to get out of the house – even just for a weekend.
November 2021 Horoscope: Sagittarius
Sagittarius is a happy-go-lucky soul – so why the sleepless nights? The November 2021 horoscope suggests you will be sleeping even less than usual, however there may be a good reason for that. You may have a lot on your mind and that makes it difficult for you to switch off at night. Racing thoughts are not conducive to a good night’s rest and that’s something you may suffer from this month. However, some of you may find that you work best in the dark hours. If that’s so, a change in your shift patterns may be to blame for you being wide awake when the rest of us are dead to the world.
The New Moon in Scorpio at the beginning of the month suggests that a radical shift in your work pattern may be the culprit here. Whatever the underlying reasons, your disrupted daily routine is making it hard to concentrate on the things you need to do. You feel as though you’re functioning on a ‘need to know’ basis as you really don’t seem capable of thinking outside of the box. This seems unnatural to a Sagittarius – as you’re usually one of the most upbeat and creative thinkers in the zodiac. You seem down – and that’s not like you at all.
So what can you do about it? The lunar eclipse suggests all is not lost. It’s clear that things can’t go on as they are as they are really taking a toll on you mentally. Fortunately, you may be able to identify the problem and deal with it during the second part of the month – especially when the Sun moves into your sign. That should make you feel re-invigorated and, most important of all, your sense of humour (missing in action for most of the month) should make a comeback too. You will have the opportunity to get out there and be your usual jovial self – and get a good night’s sleep too.
November 2021 Horoscope: Capricorn
We don’t usually think of Capricorn as one of the world’s social animals, but this month that’s where your focus is going to be. The November 2021 horoscope suggests this month you will be putting your energy into your social world – in fact, you’ll find it hard not to do so as Capricorn is a more driven sign than most people realise. So, this may either be party time (in a Capricorn way) or you may feel you need to become more involved with social issues. Something you hear or read about may even light a spark in you that compels you to join others in taking action. It’s that kind of month.
The New Moon suggests that, however you respond to this month’s driving force, it will involve you engaging with things in a way that’s unusual for you. You’re a person who knows what you like and it’s safe to say you’re traditional in your taste. This month, you may feel a need to depart from the things you usually enjoy and try something new. Will it work for you? You may feel uncertain about whether you’re doing the right thing and this dilemma may persist regardless of the decision you make. It seems as if you’re damned if you don’t – and damned if you do.
By the time of the Lunar eclipse you’ll have a much better idea about how to resolve the issue. It seems that best way to accommodate things is to expand your range to include those things you assumed were not for you. You never know whether you like something or not until you’ve tried it so maybe this month it’s time to try out a few new things and reserve your judgement until later. New experiences are often a valuable addition to life – and that may be this month’s message to you.
November 2021 Horoscope: Aquarius
For Aquarius, the sun shines on your career. As it’s accompanied by Mercury and Mars, also in Scorpio, there is a lot of energy going on at the top of your chart. This suggests that you’re minded to push ahead in the world – and your mind is focused not only on where you want to go – but how you’re going to get there. Even for Aquarians who are not captains of industry, you’ll feel more ambitious than usual this month. It’s a time when you feel like taking the lead – so make sure your leadership skills are up to scratch otherwise you could simply be ‘bossy’ rather than ‘the boss’.
The New Moon early in the moth hints at some of the issues you may encounter in your drive for domination. Aquarius is often single minded and this month that will be apparent to all who know you. Your determination, though admirable, could cause friction at home as your ‘me first’ attitude means your natural independence may make others feel excluded. Some of you may, because of your career, be away from home at this time – and that may make you feel lonely too.
So, is there a happy compromise position? If you open up to the fact that your home and family are there to support you, then there could be. You tend to do the things you do for the benefit of other people, but you need to realise that they appreciate some constructive input, rather than simply being there to agree with your executive decisions. The lunar eclipse gives you the opportunity to be more expansive and inclusive. Use its influence well – and all will be well by the end of the month as the Sun moves into Sagittarius. That’s the time you will really be able to get people on-side.
November 2021 Horoscope: Pisces
The November 2021 horoscope for Pisces suggests that you may be planning that long awaited holiday. Pisces loves to get away from it all and with the Sun, Mercury and Mars in Scorpio you’re finding it hard to think of anything else. Whether it’s your favourite beach location, a winter break, or planning for Xmas, you love to have something to look forward to as you don’t do mundane life well at all. This month, you may have to ask yourself why you want to go away. Is it that you simply need to travel? Or are you trying to run away?
When we look at the new Moon early in the month, there may be some stress that you would love to get away from. You may be feeling trapped – but you’re not sure why. Whatever the reason, you’re going to have to go through a period of soul searching so that you can find the answer. Of course, the irony is that you’ve been racing through a lot of reasons in your head, and you may have been sharing your thoughts too. Taking a time out may be what you need to help you get a new perspective on life. Whether it’s yoga or meditation, you need to get in touch with yourself rather than run away.
Of course, there’s nothing to say that you can’t find yourself away from home. An overseas retreat may be ideal – as long as you do the work on yourself that you need to do. The lunar eclipse suggests that the latter part of the month would be an ideal time to do this, so make your plans now and find yourself later. Sound like a good plan? By the end of the month your head should be in a better place as you realise that a few issues became blown out of all proportion. Getting a better understanding of why that was so may be your goal this month.
