Your November Horoscope, Revealed

Illustrated by Abbie Winters.
As we move into the colder months, the planets ebb and flow through their paths, both direct and in retrograde. Venus, our planet of beauty and charm, will end her retrograde and return to her usual path on the 16th. Have you been waiting to pull the trigger on a new beauty ritual? You may learn more about an up-and-coming mask before it’s all over Instagram.
On that same day, our speedy communication planet, Mercury, enters his third retrograde of the year. When one area of your life regains speed, another must hit the brakes. Prepare yourself for intense internal change at the beginning of the month when the new moon arrives in Scorpio. Guard yourself against reacting too quickly or severely to loved ones during this time. On the 22nd, the Sun enters Sagittarius and the full moon enters Gemini the next day. Everyone will be ready to share their ideas, no matter how wild.

Aries
March 21 to April 19


Do you have a thirst for knowledge, Aries? You could find yourself nurturing that big brain of yours on the 8th of the month, when jolly Jupiter makes his way into your ninth house of education. Sow the seeds of your ambition on the 7th, while the new moon is in pensive Scorpio. Your reality is centered around your need for constant action — but you may have to slow down when Mercury goes out of bounds from the 4th to the 20th. The communication planet rules your zones of health and work, and in addition to its time spent out of bounds, it will go retrograde on the 16th. You’d be well advised to follow this simple rule: Don’t bite off more than you can chew!

Luckily, the 16th brings some good news, too: Now that your love and money planet, Venus, is direct, you’re ready to move forward. Trust that Venus will be helping you find your way in matters of the heart. If you’re single or attached, this marks the start of a new phase of your life. Use it to consider what you value in your relationships.

Your ruling planet, Mercury, goes out of bounds on the 4th, making his way toward his third retrograde of the year on the 16th.

Virgo
August 23 to September 22


It’s time to take a little break from work, Virgo. Mercury, your ruling planet, starts off the month out of bounds on the 4th until the 20th. Get ready for a slow-down at work, since the messenger planet rules your career zone. Your laser focus on productivity means you need a few shutdowns every year.

What will you do with all your restless energy? Spend it at home, since both Mercury and Jupiter are cohabitating in your fourth house of home and family. While you’re taking it easy with parents and elders, pick their brains and ask them about their experiences in their careers. You might be living in different times, but there is so much knowledge to gain from their insight. Even though your job might feel a little stalled, your financial planet is back on the move this month! Venus goes direct on the 16th, ready to help your finances get back to where you want them to be.

January 20 to February 18


Taking care of your body is just as important as the care that you give to your mind, Aquarius. On the 7th, consider what you can do to improve your health in small ways.

Think hard about where you would rather spend your time — at this point, it should be a no-brainer!
