This is another wild and wacky month, Scorpio, very similar to the previous month of October. A major difference, though, is that while Mercury was retrograde all last month, counting Mercury's two-week retrograde shadow period following its mid-October station, you are now on the other side. It has been a time of questioning and further exploring your inner world of dream imagination and unconscious motivation, with ramifications for your sense of identity and life purpose. Your interior process has been speaking to you, and you have likely gleaned new perspectives over the past thirty days from that deeply intuitional information, as long as you were open to hearing it. Now, beginning with the New Moon in your sign on November 4th, you are entering into an entirely new phase. Partners in your life are still full of surprises, and also may provide startling revelations that could influence your quest for a better match and integration between inner and outer. Your deepest principles are called into action in supporting your mission of service to others around you, and to the society that you are part of.

Mercury Retrograde in Libra all last month could have brought up some of your insecurities and a desire to bring more awareness to your unconscious processes. You have been introspective over this recent cycle, mulling these things over, and now in the first days of November, as you are emerging from Mercury’s retrograde shadow, could be finding some better answers to these recent questions. You may be in the process of simplifying your routine or establishing better boundaries with others. Mars, your traditional ruler, went into your sign at the end of October and will be in Scorpio until mid-December. This should feel energizing and help you gain traction in the current month.
The New Moon in your sign at very nearly the beginning of November indicates the beginning of a new cycle related to your body, your habits, and more extensively, your needs and desires. Your very sense of identity might be getting a re-boot. Rebel Uranus, currently transiting in Taurus, is precisely opposed by this New Moon, bringing up a certain amount of unpredictability during November. Partnerships could be in a state of flux and exciting new people could be filtering into your life. You might not be able to rely on others as much as you would like these days and your existing relationships may be undergoing a period of transformation. Saturn in Aquarius is squared by the New Moon – and this could also bring up the need to assess the fundamental structure in your life, which is also pushing you out of stagnating scenarios into unknown territory. The ways in which you’ve always done things are changing and it’s best to adopt a flexible mindset especially in regards to your relationship with others. Mercury enters Scorpio on the next day, the 5th, and is there for the next three weeks which should bring to you a clarifying influence.
On the 5th, also, Venus enters Capricorn where she will be transiting for an exceptionally long time, until March 2022, due to her moving retrograde in late December lasting for most of January. Venus will therefore be in Capricorn for the next seventeen weeks emphasizing written and verbal communications and – in the 2022 timing – your need to reassess how you use information and the internet. Venus is linked to what we value and what we find pleasurable. The next several months will offer many opportunities to assess the ways in which you communicate with your friends and colleagues or address lingering issues. You may need to make adjustments to existing frameworks for greater productivity and creativity to emerge together in a symbiotic relationship for you.
Mercury and Mars conjunct in Scorpio on the 9th and 10th may bring friction at home or in your partnerships but this aspect can be beneficial for work that requires a greater amount of concentration. The First Quarter Moon in Aquarius on the 11th highlights your domestic life and you could have a lot more energy to deal with chores and organize your home. You may have to contend however with a certain amount of unpredictability if you share your space with others as Mercury and Mars come into an opposition with Uranus in your opposite sign of Taurus mid-month, especially if there is already pre-existing tension. Otherwise, the third week of November could bring a productive and creative influence, particularly for written or artistic projects.
On the 19th, the Taurus-Scorpio Full Moon takes place early and is a partial Lunar Eclipse. This will emphasize your partnerships and collaborations. Venus in Capricorn rules Taurus and therefore this eclipse; her trine to Uranus in Taurus brings a decidedly excitable influence. It might be a time to try new ways of dealing with a relationship situation especially if the old ways seem to be taking you nowhere. A wind of change is blowing into your life during this volatile month but it may take many weeks before you fully know what this entails. Staying flexible and open to change will allow the best possible outcomes for you to occur.
The Sun enters the Mutable Fire sign of Sagittarius on the 21st, highlighting your resources, income, and more extensively your sense of self-worth. This could last for the thirty days that the Sun will remain in this sign. Mercury follows suit entering Sagittarius on the 24th so that this final week of November may be a good time to assess your financial situation or work on a budget. Knowing what comes in and what goes out will help you have a clearer sense of what’s actually possible.
The last week of November contains a host of supportive aspects to deal with your financial and domestic life. You may be more realistic in your appraisals of what’s possible at this time and it could be your opportunity to tackle lingering logistical issues. You should have the necessary energy to deal with the more mundane parts of your life following the more unpredictable influences that were permeating the first half of November.
