This is a powerful month of finding yourself in new ways, Leo! The strong astrological currents running through your chart at this time affect you in varied areas of your life, although most directly on the inside of your mind and your psyche, the place within you which represents the origin of all that appears on your outer surface. There are intimations of a fresh start on family life and for your home situation, and your relationships also. These latter are somehow bending to come to you more directly from the heart. Communicative outreach is an important component that features spiritual implications more readily than purely practical ones. After the climactic Full Moon and total lunar eclipse of November 8th, you seek a better integration of public action with private thought and feelings; indeed these cannot be entirely separated. There are career choices that continue to be available to you while limitations concerning personal or business partnerships must be simultaneously navigated. Authentic action depends on more fully understanding your deepest principles. It is a difficult synthesis that you seek, and yet it is one that is vital for your continued well-being and growth as an individual.

A powerful New Moon and solar eclipse in Scorpio took place at the end of October, setting the stage for what unfolds during the first three weeks of November. The current Scorpionic influx corresponds to the domestic sector of your solar chart and may bring an important purging and renewal to unfold in this area in the weeks ahead. Where you want to be or what you call home could be undergoing changes and whether these are circumstantial or philosophical something dynamic could be taking place allowing you to let go of any support systems or mindsets that do not feel secure or stable. The focus on your depths and your home life might also reference your family of origin, with new realizations there as well.
Mars stationed retrograde in Gemini at the end of October which might bring an important revision process to take place in the next few months in relation to your dreams and hopes for the future, as well as the people who can help you achieve them. The month of November is a very dynamic one and although it begins with some very dynamic aspects, the later part of the month offers the possibility to integrate recent changes and set your sights on future goals.
The first week of November could bring realization surrounding shared resources or the support you receive from others and how this could help you progress. Compromising between growth and your pre-existing commitments might feel like a juggling act these days. However, your important partnerships may also offer the solidity you need in order to launch yourself into the unknown. You might have been progressively building your way towards a sustainable career or vocational path and it could be the support you receive from others that help you progress at this time.
The Full Moon and lunar eclipse in Taurus culminates on November 8th and carries a powerful and innovative current into the part of your chart that relates to your career and your social role. The second week of November can therefore bring a process to culminate that relates to your base of operation and how well or detrimental your support system is to your growth. Key partnerships can also represent mentorships in this regard. This eclipse represents a powerful juncture when many things in your life, with extended study, might become clearer. You may at times feel like you can only rely on yourself and that your success depends wholeheartedly on you. However, more recent events in your life might also be showing you that you do have a lot of people rooting for you and that their supportive influence is helping you implement the changes that you need to make in order to grow.
The pressure to meet the needs of a relationship or your domestic obligations could be felt more acutely as the Sun in Scorpio forms a square to Saturn in Aquarius from the 10th through the 11th. You may feel a certain amount of frustration related to a situation at home but a compromise could be needed for things to run smoothly at this time. You might have to keep your goals in mind without worrying too much about current limitations.
From the 12th until the 15th of November, Mercury and Venus in Scorpio forming trines with Neptune in Pisces – and sextiles to Pluto in Capricorn – could highlight anxieties surrounding dependency and autonomy but also the opportunity to move beyond feelings of hopelessness into deeper trust and flexibility.
Things could start to feel more energized once Venus and Mercury enter Sagittarius on the 16th, and even more so once the Sun ingress into the sign of the Archer on the 22nd. You should feel an important shift and a renewed sense of perspective once Mercury, Venus, and the Sun are in a fellow Fire sign which offers more direct support for Leos.
The New Moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd is an exciting one as it takes place in your creative sector just as Jupiter stations direct in Pisces. This New Moon could be your opportunity to set intentions surrounding what you love as it offers the soil needed to follow your passions more wholeheartedly. This fertile period continues in the latter part of the month which may allow you to set the stage for where your heart is wanting to take you.
Mars retrograde in Gemini forms a trine with Saturn in Aquarius beginning on the 24th, and running into December, highlighting once again where support is available.
On the 28th and the 29th, the end of the month closes with Mercury in Sagittarius opposing Mars in Gemini while also forming a trine with Saturn in Aquarius. These aspects could highlight your collaborations with others and the need to compromise or balance your ideas with the ones of people who can help you realize your goals. This could feel somewhat challenging if you still have a hard time accepting help. However, if you have been doing your homework, the end of the month might bring constructive ideas for your creative projects.
