This month is going to test your patience and your ability to pace yourself. November starts off with a dynamic full moon in Taurus on the 3rd, and this will be extra emo and forceful. Not to mention we’re still under the influence of the recent eclipse season, so this will be an important time to act in accordance with your values. By the 18th, things are going to get pretty heated: Make sure that you can stand by your actions. How you do what you do and why you do it is a reflection of you and no one else. Act in ways that reflect your integrity, not your situation, my love.
March 21–April 19
November starts off with your relationships demanding your attention. Things are likely to come at you fast and furious, but the most important thing for you to remember is this gem: You don’t have to react to everything, and you don’t have to react right away. Keep it constructive or you’ll end up acting out of insecurity with your truest feels, Aries. From the 18th onward, you’re likely to be feeling impatient and ready to make some noise. Make sure that you don’t project your feelings on to your situation and engage in power struggles that wreak havoc on your heart. Pick your battles wisely this month.
April 20–May 20
The one time a year when the moon is full in your sign is on the 3rd—and this one comes with a punch. Take this time to look back at the development of your relationships in the past six months, Taurus. If you’ve gotten off track of how you want to be with others, this is your time to realign. If you’re happy with how things are in your relationships, take this time to recommit to loving your own sweet self. You may feel inspired to stir the pot this month, but that would be a huge mistake. Let people reveal themselves to you. Pay attention to how others act so that instead of convincing them to be a certain way, you can change your own stubborn self.
May 21–June 21
The first half of November is gonna be low-key mystifying for you, Twin Star. It’s in your best interest to avoid making permanent decisions before the 14th, as your sense of self and the world around you is likely to feel shaky. This is happening so that you don’t get off track: Identify what’s truly important for the person you are so that you don’t keep reinvesting in what you once were. You’re changing, and your relationships need to change with you. A close relationship may get complicated around the end of the month. When problems rise to the surface, that's when it becomes most clear what needs to change. It’s time to show all the way up, my love.
June 22–July 22
People love to talk about closure, but it often comes in complicated ways. This month may bring you some surprises, expose some secrets, and help you move on. But know this, Moonchild: True closure is an inside job. If you think having a change of heart is conditional, you’re doing a disservice to your center of strength and ignoring your own willpower. Tensions will rise on the 18th, and if you engage in blame games, you’re likely to feel awful. Temper your passions with reason and compassion. Show yourself the same patience that you want others to offer you during the ebb and flow of your emotions.
July 23–August 22
The full moon on November 3 is meant to be a time for you to call in your energy and feel the why of it all. If you aren’t doing the things that will get you where you want to be in the long term, you’re likely to feel pretty irritable. Love and relationships are invaluable, but they can’t replace the value of walking your own best path. The tension between your needs and desires is real this month, and it’s important to your happiness that you prioritize your needs. If you’ve put your obligations and petty wants at the top of your list, you may be in for a rude awakening. Do you this month, Leo.
August 23–September 22
If you’ve been holding on to a person from your past, it’s time to let go. November starts off with some explosive energies, and if you aren’t careful, you’ll end up obsessing on theories about people and situations, ignoring your current reality altogether. It’s time for you to get present, Virgo. Cultivate acceptance of the here and now, and leave the shoulda-woulda-coulda’s to someone with more time on their hands. As the old adage says, "It’s not where you're from; it’s where you're going." Build your future happiness on the foundation of a well-adjusted present this month.
September 23–October 22
November kicks off by forcing you to deal with yourself. Watch out from November 2 to 4, as your desire for diplomacy collides with your need to be true to yourself—or it may be that someone else in your life feels that way and changes abruptly on you. This isn’t the time for a lateral change; you’ve got to make improvements to your love/like life that make things more authentic. If you don’t, you run the serious risk of having your hand forced after the 17th, and that will be way less pleasant. If you can’t figure out the best possible option, that’s OK. But it’s time to step up and get proactive.
October 23–November 21
The moon is full in your relationship house only once a year, and it’s always big news for you. Expect old relationships—or old patterns of how you emotionally show up with others—to emerge at the start of the month and have lasting reverberations. Don’t get so caught up in your reactions that you miss out on this opportunity to address your long-standing emo issues. The only way to break a pattern is to be aware that it’s happening in the moment and then to make a different choice in how you react. Keep it simple as you embrace your vulnerability in favor of more whole intimacy.
November 22–December 21
This month is a call for you to step up your self-care as your grasp on reality is being tested. If your lifestyle is working well for you, this may be a time of simple adjustments. But if you’ve been phoning it in, you may have some heavy lifting to do. Know the difference between a good opportunity and a good opportunity for you, ‘Tarius. Some things are great on paper but don’t actually work for you when you put them into action. Weigh your ideas about people and situations against the evidence you have in front of you. Trade in your idealism for informed realism this month.
December 22–January 19
In the wise words of Paulo Coelho, “An immature person seeks revenge. An intelligent person moves on, allowing karma to take care of the problem.” This month may find you so caught up in what you think others are thinking or saying about you that you stoop down to a petty place, Cappy. If you’re fighting, make sure that you know what you’re fighting for, instead of getting caught up in power struggles that you can’t win. People are always revealing themselves to you. This month confront the truth of your relationships, even if you don’t love what you see.
January 20–February 19
Letting go is hard to do, but this month the moon is gonna make you do it. Sometimes people come into your life to help you learn a lesson about yourself or the world, and then they’re done. This isn’t a failure; it’s growth, just of a painful kind. It’s time for healing, my love, and it’s likely to be uncomfortable. In the words of Kahlil Gibran, "The lust for comfort murders the passion of the soul.” Don’t confuse your desire for security with happiness. The truth is true whether you confront it or not, but it will wait for you, no matter how long it takes. Don’t put off the inevitable, Aquarius.
February 19–March 20
Showing your love and loyalty to others shouldn’t be done with acts of self-sabotage or deeds that require you to abandon yourself, Pisces. This month will test your relationships, but you’re not without recourse. Be clear and direct about your own needs so that you can manage them in concert with how you show up for others. The middle of the month is likely to bring some communication weirdness, but ghosting or acting like a martyr will both get you in equal trouble. Take ownership for how you express your boundaries as a way of investing in intimacy with others. If you don’t understand your own needs, it’s unrealistic to think anyone can.
