MONTH OF November
Work-life rebalance: incoming! Eclipse season is going strong as November opens in the tailwind of an October 25 Scorpio solar eclipse in your professional sector. This November 8, a Taurus total lunar eclipse arrives to shake up business as usual with home and family. Things could start to look very different at Chateau Aquarius before the end of the year.
Your career will keep you busy for the first three weeks of the month as the Sun marches through Scorpio and your tenth house of career and ambition. While others downshift into early holiday mode, you’re stepping up to the plate to hit that 2022 home run. Stay focused on your priorities until November 22 and you could achieve your grand slam victory!
You’ll have plenty of time to let loose after November 22, when the Sun rolls into Sagittarius and your eleventh house of group activity and friendship. As the natural ruler of this zodiac zone, you’ll be in your social element for the next four weeks.

The November 23 Sagittarius new moon could bring a fresh collaboration opportunity or a slew of holiday party invitations. Don’t be shy about mixing business with pleasure! That same day, lucky and abundant Jupiter ends a four-month retrograde, powering forward in Pisces and your money sector. Between now and December 20, you could have a profitable finish to the year.
With social Mercury and magnetic Venus also in Sagittarius, it’s a lovely start to Thanksgiving week if you’re celebrating in the U.S. Dare we hope for a more peaceful holiday than in recent years? While we may not be 100 percent pandemic- and politics-free (midterm elections are on the same day as that total lunar eclipse), the posse of planets in big-picture Sagittarius could help us all focus on coming together rather than bickering over divisive differences.
Make your moves! It’s Scorpio season until November 22
Countdown! The calendar might not be turning just yet, but you’ve got your eye on the ticker this month. The Sun is making its annual sojourn through Scorpio and your ambitious, goal-driven tenth house until November 22, getting you all fired up to meet your 2022 milestones. You’ve got no time for drama or nonsense, Aquarius: You’re on a mission, and the only way to go is up!
Putting in those long hours is smart because the rest of the year will take on a highly social vibe after this. You won’t be quite as eager to “rise and grind” (unless we’re talking about your artisanal coffee beans, that is). So make your moves now. Target a few lofty career goals and check ‘em off your list before the year ends.
The November 8 Taurus full moon is a total lunar eclipse
Nomadic days are here again? On November 8, the Taurus lunar full blood moon eclipse arrives to bring major change to your fourth house of home, family and foundations. This is the second Taurus lunar eclipse in a series that began on November 19, 2021, and will ripple across the Taurus/Scorpio axis until October 28, 2023.
You may feel especially inclined to pull up roots since the full moon will travel in tandem with your ruler, disruptor Uranus, the planet of sudden changes. This extra dose of frenetic energy could leave you feeling destabilized, emotionally and in your personal life. Ramp up your self-care now because you’ll need extra support to stay centered. A volatile situation with family or home could make it hard to find your footing.
On top of it all, this moon-Uranus duo is in a challenging T-square (three-way tug of war) with tough Saturn in YOUR sign and a Sun-Mercury-Venus trio in your career sector. You could feel pulled between the demands of your personal life, professional obligations and well, the oft-forgotten party: YOU! Get ahead of this curveball by establishing clear boundaries and expectations with family and work from the get-go this month.
Watch your wallet at the November 19 Mars-Neptune square
Hold off on those early access Black Friday sales, Aquarius. Today, impatient Mars in your indulgent fifth house squares off with no-limits Neptune in your money sector. You’ve got an appetite for luxury, but the funds might be another story. Are you trying to bury your frustration with retail therapy instead of speaking up? Better to speak up now. Just be mindful that your drama dial will be cranked up high. If you choose to vent, make sure it’s to a friend who doesn’t just amplify your aggravation. Under these stars, you could easily fan the flames of chaos and conflict and turn something into a much bigger deal than it actually is.
November 22: Sun enters Sagittarius and November 23 Sagittarius new moon
Don’t forget to lean on your team! Sagittarius season begins on November 22 as the Sun enters the Archer’s court for a monthlong sashay through your eleventh house of group activity and friendship. It’s the perfect time to hit the holiday party circuit to network and catch up with your crew. Combine business and pleasure, maybe even hosting a gathering event to promote something special you’re working on.
The November 23 Sagittarius new moon could present the perfect moment for party planning or throwing your epic bash. A dynamic group might come together now as this new moon kicks off a six-month cycle for creative collaborations. With clever Mercury and harmonizer Venus, the belle of every ball, also in Sagittarius, you might want to plan an offsite for a year-end brainstorm or start a Slack channel to kick around holiday party plans, whether that’s picking the best restaurant for a celebratory lunch or organizing the Secret Santa exchange.
Jupiter retrograde ends November 23
On November 23, lucky Jupiter will end a retrograde slowdown that began on July 28, powering forward for its final lap through Pisces and your work and money house. Jupiter is the planet of expansion and abundance, and it’s visiting this flush-with-cash sector until December 20 of this year. Bountiful Jupiter only comes here every 12 years, underscoring the fact that this is THE time to break out of any limiting jobs, get free from debt and become a wise steward of your money…preferably before ringing in the New Year!
If you’ve dreamed of starting a business or shifting to a path that’s aligned with your passions, Jupiter’s got your back. But even the luckiest Aquarians may have felt a bit of a slowdown with Saturn in your sign for the past two years. It may take until Saturn exits Aquarius in early March 2023 to fully launch the plan. But don’t let that stop you from putting your feelers out and creating a financial foundation for success! Seeds planted between now and Christmas could sprout by springtime. Be patient and persistent, but DO keep moving things along bit by bit.
Hit the brakes on a fast-moving affair? Passionate Mars has been blazing through Gemini and your romantic fifth house since August, dialing up the passion and urging you to take a risk in the name of love. But when the red planet turned retrograde on October 30, that sizzle may have started to, well, fizzle. Between now and January 12, watch for drama or the unexpected return of an old flame. For couples, drama and discord could surge up with Mars gone rogue. Watch your temper and knee-jerk reactions.
Things may take a turn for the serious in the first half of the month as Venus moves through Scorpio and your tenth house of long-term plans until November 16. You’ll be thinking about where things are headed with a newish love interest, or whether it’s time to take that next big step. With the holidays coming up, try to approach these topics with a little lightness. (Diplomatic Venus will help!) If you’re not quite ready to meet someone’s parents or bring them as your date to the office holiday party, that’s okay. You don’t have to succumb to those manufactured expectations. But if you’d LIKE more commitment or to start tackling a shared goal with a partner, charming Venus will roll out the red carpet and happily comply!
Still, you may not want to lock yourself into anything too binding prematurely. On November 16, romantic Venus moves into freewheeling Sagittarius and your social eleventh house until December 9, making you crave more room to roam. No Aquarius appreciates being told what to do, but your individualistic streak could really be fired up now. Focus on less coupley activities if you’re in a relationship, and mix in solo adventures or group hangouts where you can (harmlessly) flirt or keep things light.
For single Aquarians, Venus in this tech-savvy house can boost your online dating prospects. Freshen up your profiles or activate your account—you could actually meet someone promising now. And—not that you need prodding—make the rounds at holiday parties. Let yourself be introduced and set up this month. A sexy friend of a friend could be exactly who you want to find waiting for you under the mistletoe!
Three, two, one…liftoff! Your career could skyrocket this month as the Sun blazes through Scorpio and your ambitious tenth house until November 21. Up the ante during the first three weeks of the month by adding polish and professionalism to everything you touch.
With the lingering energy of the October 25 Scorpio solar eclipse, you could have come into this month with a new professional opportunity tucked into your holster. Maybe you even left a position to venture into something new or started planting the seeds for a new business venture. Start working on the particulars now!
Once the Sun bursts into Sagittarius and your group-centric eleventh house on November 22, that might include mapping out an org chart, networking or combing through your contact list for helpful names. Aquarius is the sign of friendship, and while they say not to mix that with business, those “rules” don’t apply to you. There are few who don’t become members of your Water Bearer crew after collaborating. At the November 23 Sagittarius new moon, you could expand your circle, perhaps meeting some promising new people at a holiday gathering or event. With social Mercury and magnetic Venus both in Sagittarius now, you’ll be the most irresistible guest at any party you attend.
