Your Monthly Horoscopes: November 2022

We’ve tried, and there’s simply no way to sugarcoat it: November’s astro weather is extremely challenging. The good news is: The problems we’re facing now aren’t anything new. We’ve known what’s up for a long time. The bad news is this: Whatever it is can no longer be put off. We have to deal with it now. One last push to get through this perfect storm. Heavy sigh.

We enter the month in the midst of eclipse season with action planet Mars moving retrograde. While the eclipses stir fate, summoning sudden beginnings and endings, Mars retrograde brings confusion, wars of words and delays. The solar eclipse in Scorpio on October 25th forced us to let something go—whether that was a toxic relationship, a bad habit, or those boots collecting dust in the back of the closet—so there’s space to fill now! 

But with the present unstable and the future uncertain, we’re left at a loss. What’s sustainable and reliable enough to go in its place? The total lunar eclipse in Taurus on November 8th comes with even more shocking upsets, but may also offer some unexpected generosity. Though it’s easy to shut down when things are this rough, being open to giving and receiving kindness provides solutions.

Once we get through these eclipses, things ease up ever so slightly by the third week of the month as we move from protective Scorpio season to mischievous Sagittarius season. Love planet Venus moves into Sagittarius on the 16th, followed by communication planet Mercury on the 17th and then the sun on the 22nd. Sags really know how to make an entrance, just ask Taylor Swift, and this seasonal shift feels like a raging bonfire of relief. The new moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd (which goes exact as abundance planet Jupiter stations direct in optimistic Pisces) encourages setting some bold and, dare we say, joyful intentions. That’s not to say things aren’t still muddled, difficult, precarious, or all of the above, but at the very least, there’s some levity as we work through the difficulties.

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign may provide further insight.)

(March 21 - April 19)

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): A surprise check arrives in the mail!
  • New Moon (11/23): Could a trip to Paris be more than a daydream?
  • Other Key Dates: 11/19, 11/28, 11/29

As November begins, you’re in the midst of totally restructuring your schedule and communications. Your favorite fitness studio has permanently closed, your group chat has gone completely silent, and your sister’s wedding is over, which means the planning emails can no longer be your main distraction from work. In some ways, you’re feeling more free than you have in years. But you’re also too burnt out to figure out what you want in this newly unfettered life. Though there’s grief to move through as familiar places and people fall away, you also have the rare opportunity to choose how to fill your time. This is an ongoing process that will continue through early next year so don’t be too hard on yourself if it’s not coming together just yet. Part of mastering something is constant practice, and once Sagittarius season kicks off on the 23rd, you’re moved to check out travel and education opportunities. If you could go anywhere, where would you go?

Aries Love Horoscope

While October found you deep in the honeymoon phase, this month’s transits speak to building trust and deeper commitment with your partner. What scary conversations have you been avoiding? What conflicts have you been tiptoeing around? If you’re in a long term relationship, this is a great month to start couple’s therapy.

Aries Money Horoscope

With money planet Venus spending the first half of the month in Scorpio (the sign of her detriment), you might find that funds are a bit tighter than usual as you cover unexpected debts. Once Venus moves into Sagittarius on the 16th, you’re tempted to splurge on a trip abroad, but think hard before you take on more debt.

(April 20 - May 20)

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): Wear your most controversial outfit to the party!
  • New Moon (11/23): Therapy intake session
  • Other Key Dates: 11/5, 11/7, 11/10, 11/15, 11/16, 11/21

The solar eclipse in Scorpio on October 25th brought one of your most important relationships or contracts to an end. You likely saw this coming, but that doesn’t make the grief any easier to process. As the month begins, you’re left picking up the pieces with no silver lining in sight. Just when you’re ready to give up altogether though, the lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th sends some unexpected generosity—sweet encouragement from a friend, a last minute gifted massage from a lover, an effusive compliment from a coworker—that pulls you out of this rut. Recovery is slow, but by the new moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd, you’re ready to untangle the last of what you share with your ex, go back to therapy, and accept even more support from loved one

Taurus Love Horoscope

Though it’s tempting to forget yourself and pour your heart into someone else this month, you find that connections are unstable, difficult to maintain, and disappear as quickly as they arrive. Prospects improve after Venus moves into Sagittarius on the 16th and you’re able to make more solid, vulnerable connections.

Taurus Money Horoscope

With Mars now retrograde in your money sector through January 2023, you have no choice but to address some of your unchecked spending habits. Is it really necessary to have all of those subscriptions? Instead of mindlessly swiping, put your energy into clearing out your empty expenses this month.

(May 21 - June 20)

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): A totally sleepless night
  • New Moon (11/23): First date with your future spouse
  • Other Key Dates: 11/8, 11/10, 11/12, 11/14, 11/16, 11/17, 11/21, 11/29

As November begins, you’re in the midst of a job hunt that you weren’t expecting to be on before the solar eclipse on October 25th. Whether your company suddenly downsized, freelance projects got unexpectedly postponed or a return to office mandate was impossible to make work, you’re feeling left in a lurch. It’s frustrating to have to find something under a time crunch, and you’re finding it difficult to summon your usual charm and sense of humor in the process. The lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th opens up yet another can of worms. Let there be comfort in reminding yourself that when everything is so out of your control, it’s best to just go with the flow. In fact, with a little luck, the new moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd provides a perfect window of opportunity to start a new contract.

Gemini Love Horoscope

Whether single or partnered, Sagittarius season is the time of year when you’re most focused on relationships. In fact, once Venus moves into Sagittarius on the 16th, you’re able to put aside some of this month’s difficulties and get into a romantic mood.

Gemini Money Horoscope

Money is all over the place for you this month, Gemini. Over the first half of the month, you’re splurging on delivery way too often and engaging in plenty of retail therapy. But—possibly around the lunar eclipse on the 8th—you also receive a windfall to cover the excess debt. You’re thrilled for an easy fix, but don’t plan on this happening again in the future.

(June 21 - July 22)

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): An unexpected (and much needed) wild night out with friends
  • New Moon (11/23): Start training for a half marathon!
  • Other Key Dates: 11/13, 11/14, 11/18

As November begins, you’re tempted to keep yourself at a remove, mostly to avoid getting caught in everyone else’s drama. Though the solar eclipse on October 25th allowed you to clarify your heart’s desires—especially when it comes to romance and creative pursuits—you’re not quite ready to shout those needs from the rooftop just yet. Mars is retrograde in your unconscious sector, stoking your anxiety and self doubt. It’s perfectly OK to wade in the confusion for now, but if a friend or coworker comes to you with a generous offer at the lunar eclipse on the 8th, do your best to say yes and run with it. The shift into Sagittarius season on the 22nd is an opportunity for you to focus on getting your health and routines back into shape. Take some space to honor your mind-body connection. Hydrate. Take a walk. Sweat out all those big feelings.

Cancer Love Horoscope

Love planet Venus spends the first half of November (through the 16th) in your romance sector. Usually this is an auspicious influence for your dating life, but this month, you’re striking out more than getting lucky. Ultimately this is for the best. Why waste your time with someone who doesn’t deserve it?

Cancer Money Horoscope

Money concerns that have been building for you the past few months peak on the 5th when you have to skip out on an evening with friends because you simply can’t afford it! As the sun faces off with Uranus on the 9th though, another friend or coworker gives you some unexpected fiscal advice that gets you back on track.

(July 23 - Aug 22)

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): Big meeting with your boss!
  • New Moon (11/23): Meet-cute with your next crush
  • Other Key Dates: 11/8, 11/9, 11/11, 11/14, 11/18, 11/20

The solar eclipse on October 25th was a wrecking ball for you, Leo. Whether you’re dealing with a flooded basement, a stressful roommate dynamic or a nightmare kitchen renovation, your frustration with your living space has reached a fever pitch. As November begins, you’re ready to throw it all in the trash and move to Barcelona. But just as you’re booking flights and planning your great escape, the lunar eclipse on the 8th brings an unexpected career opportunity that requires you to stay put. Though you might feel like a free agent right now, this sudden offer is also a reminder that you have more commitments than you realize. Once Sagittarius season begins on the 22nd, things ever so slightly lighten up allowing you to get creative and make the best of your current circumstances.

Leo Love Horoscope

Whether you’re single or taken, relationship blocks that have kept you from connecting since the spring finally ease up this month. That being said, if you’re recently exiting a long term relationship, try to have fun rather than seeking something serious. The new moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd marks the beginning of a new era for your dating life.

Leo Money Horoscope

You’re more frugal than usual this month as you want to start saving for a possible move or home renovation. But as you look around your current space, you’re also very tempted to downsize your belongings. An impromptu stoop sale on the 5th brings in some much needed extra cash.

(August 23 - September 23)

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): Unexpected meeting with a treasured mentor
  • New Moon (11/23): Housewarming party!
  • Other Key Dates: 11/8, 11/10, 11/12, 11/14, 11/16, 11/17, 11/21, 11/29

The solar eclipse on October 25th was a bittersweet goodbye for you, Virgo. Over the past year, you’ve had to let go of many old friends, community spaces and modes of communication that no longer serve a purpose in your life. This recent loss was necessary, but it’s terrifying to think about how you’re going to fill that space now that you’ve moved on. This despondent mood doesn’t last long though because the lunar eclipse on the 8th brings a serendipitous travel or education opportunity to your doorstep. Though you worry this endeavor might end up being a failure, why not take the risk anyway? Even if you don’t succeed, you’ll learn so much about yourself in the process. Meanwhile, things are also heating up in your career and public life, and once Sagittarius season begins on the 22nd, you realize that you need to better balance your personal and professional life. What tiny details can you attend to at home to keep you grounded?

Virgo Love Horoscope

Abundance planet Jupiter moved back into your relationship sector (where it last was December 28, 2021 through May 10, 2022) at the end of October. Despite all the other difficulties this month, you’re feeling especially loved and appreciated. If you’re single, Jupiter moving direct on the 23rd reignites a love story that paused back in the spring.

Virgo Money Horoscope

With money planet Venus in Scorpio (the sign of her detriment) until the 16th, funds are tight for the first half of the month, further adding to your confusion about how to best fill your time. Things improve once Venus enters Sagittarius though, and you’re inspired to put some funds toward home improvement.

(September 23 - October 21)

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): Out-of-the-blue debt relief
  • New Moon (11/23): A new coffee shop opens on your block
  • Other Key Dates: 11/5, 11/7, 11/10, 11/15, 11/16, 11/21

The solar eclipse on October 25th brought some humbling news about your debts, income or personal finances. Those taxes and overdue bills can no longer be avoided, and tbh, you’re considering selling off your fancy record player, vintage T-shirt collection or maybe even your car (!) to cover what you owe. You’ve always been ambitious and entrepreneurial, but part of you is too burnt out to even ponder a more creative solution. But just as you’re about to pull the trigger on that desperation yard sale, the lunar eclipse on the 8th brings some unexpected emotional or financial relief. Accepting generosity can sometimes feel like making a deal with the devil (as they say, there’s no such thing as a free lunch!), but this is all part of a larger story about letting go of scarcity and claiming abundance. Once Sagittarius season begins on the 22nd, your funds aren’t feeling as tight and you can kick off the holiday season with some much needed nights out with old friends.

Libra Love Horoscope

No one does relationships like you do, Libra. But for the last few years, you’ve been much more careful about who you let into your love life. With discipline planet Saturn now moving direct in your romance sector, you’re feeling confident about boundaries you’ve set and are ready to put your guard down a bit more.

Libra Money Horoscope

Money is a sensitive topic for you this month, Libra. If the lunar eclipse on the 8th brings a windfall, make sure that you’re allocating some of the funds toward travel, education and expanding your mind. You can pay off your debts and treat yourself too.

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): A fated meeting
  • New Moon (11/23): Some much-needed retail therapy
  • Other Key Dates: 11/19, 11/28, 11/29

You doing OK, Scorpio? The solar eclipse on October 25th was in your sign and as November begins, you’re still feeling drained from personal challenges that reached a peak during that week. Whether it was your health or your heart that was hurting, you’re struggling to summon the energy to pull yourself back on your feet. Despite this, you’re also feeling more confident and sure of yourself and your values. The lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th opens up opportunities to connect with romantic and business partners alike. Once again, you’re now understanding that the better you know yourself, the easier it is to attract the right people into your life. The new moon in Sagittarius on the 23rd lets you tap into even more self confidence. No one can keep their eyes off of you when you’re doing what you love.

Scorpio Love Horoscope

As mentioned, the lunar eclipse on the 8th could bring an unexpected romantic development so whether you’re single or partnered, be open to any and all possibilities that come up around this time. Love planet Venus also spends the first half of the month in your sign making you extra glamorous and confident. Use this energy to your advantage and ask that hot friend of a friend on a date.

Scorpio Money Horoscope

Abundance planet Jupiter moved back into your pleasure sector on October 28th encouraging you to spend a bit more frivolously than you were for most of this year. Remember: you don’t need to put all of your hard earned cash into self improvement. You’re also allowed to have fun.

(November 22 - December 21)

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): Unforeseen bonding moment with coworkers
  • New Moon (11/23): New moon, new you!
  • Other Key Dates: 11/15, 11/16, 11/20

The solar eclipse on October 25th was in your unconscious sector, and likely stirred up a feeling of deep ungroundedness. Staying in the present moment is difficult under these skies, and you’re likely caught in a nostalgia spiral or future tripping as the month begins. Things are also heating up in your closest relationships, both for better (reconnecting with your BFF from college) and for worse (increasing doubts about a romantic or business partnership you rushed into over the summer). This all reaches a peak at the lunar eclipse in Taurus on the 8th which is a potent time to let go of things that are out of your control. Treat yourself to a massage, facial or extra long shower once your season begins on the 22nd to pull yourself back into your body. There are still problems to manage at the end of the month, but none are meant to be worked through alone.

Sagittarius Love Horoscope

If you’re single, you may reconnect with an ex-lover from the past (particularly around the 19th), and if you’re taken, this month is definitely one that puts your relationship to the test! It might be hard to get back on the same page after a conflict so you may want to try scheduling a weekly check in to keep the conversation going.

Sagittarius Money Horoscope

With discipline planet Saturn now moving direct in the part of your chart that deals with short term projects and entrepreneurship, this might be the month when you finally get things together for that side hustle you’ve been mulling for years. If all goes well, the Etsy shop could be ready to launch by the 28th—just in time for the holidays!

(December 22 - January 19)

November 2022 Overview

The solar eclipse in Scorpio on October 25th revealed exactly where you stand with a friend or coworker. For better or worse, you now know who your true allies are. Meanwhile, your routines and workflow are in desperate need of a reconfiguration, but for the first few weeks of the month, you have so much work to do, so many errands to run, so many obligations to attend to, that you can barely stay afloat, let alone take a pause to adjust. Amidst all the tumult, on the 8th, the lunar eclipse brings an unexpected romance or surprising creative opportunity that takes you out of the hot seat, if only for a day. Once Sagittarius season begins on the 22nd, you’re able to catch your breath as most of the planets move into your unconscious sector, keeping you at a remove. The new moon on the 23rd (just in time for Thanksgiving!) is one for signing off and taking a long nap.

Capricorn Love Horoscope

As mentioned, whether single or partnered, the lunar eclipse on the 8th brings something surprising and spicy (!) to your romantic life. And don’t just wait for good things to come your way, this is also a time to be generous with your love. Give your partner a massage! Plan an elaborate date! Write your crush a poem and see how they respond!

Capricorn Money Horoscope

Saturn stationed direct in your money sector on October 23rd and as November begins, you’re feeling less worried about spending than you have in a long time. You’ve also been able to save quite a bit over the last few years, and now’s a great time to research possible investments to secure your future.

(January 20 - February 18)

November 2022 Overview

The solar eclipse on October 25h brought a major disruption or breakthrough for your career. You’ve been re-evaluating how you want to show up in public all year, and as the month begins, you’re either stepping up to the plate or taking a step back. As much as you’re thrilled to enter a new era in your professional life, most of your energy is being put into private life right now: caring for your kids, going on more dates, and spending more time on your hobbies. The lunar eclipse on the 8th brings a surprise addition to your family or home. Whether you’re pregnant or just thrilled to finally find the couch of your dreams,  this development is both generative and overwhelming. Once Sagittarius season begins on the 22nd, you’re excited to connect with friends and circulate at holiday parties, sharing all your big news along the way. The pressure has been on this year, but you’ve done so well!

Aquarius Love Horoscope

Despite all the changes happening at home, both you and your partner are very tied up at work this month. It’s worth sitting down (after the 5th when the sun gets a pinch from the lunar south node) and planning intentional times to hang before things get too busy for both of you.

Aquarius Money Horoscope

Jupiter dipped back into your money sector on October 28th, bringing abundance to your bank account and plenty or opportunities to ask for a raise. Venus connects with Jupiter on the 15th—a particularly auspicious day to collect on overdue invoices or encourage your boss to go ahead with the holiday bonus.

(February 19 - March 20)

November 2022 Overview

  • Lunar Eclipse (11/8): Random party at your neighbor’s house!
  • New Moon (11/23): First day at your new job
  • Other Key Dates: 11/15, 11/16, 11/20

The solar eclipse on October 25th came as a helpful disruption to your long-term goals and visions. It’s not that you’ve been stuck in a total rut, but you have been hesitant to put your ideas out into the world. Whether you decided to apply to grad school or just attended a really amazing yoga class, the path ahead is more structured and refined for you now. Though this is all very exciting, what’s currently stressing you out  is how these fresh goals might wreak havoc with your schedule and family life, and the lunar eclipse on the 8th certainly highlights some of those risks. How can you recalibrate your routines to serve your higher purpose? Once Sagittarius season begins on the 22nd, your focus is all on your career and public image. Think of the new moon on the 23rd as the beginning of a new era for your professional life. How are you showing up as a leader?

Pisces Love Horoscope

With communication planet Mercury moving through your travel sector for the first half of the month, you may connect with a former lover who’s now living abroad. If you’ve been dating someone special and looking for the perfect moment to “hard launch” the relationship on Instagram, wait until Mercury moves into your public image sector on the 17th.

Pisces Money Horoscope

Jupiter spent May through October in your money sector bringing you plenty of opportunities to make extra cash. The influx slows this month though so you need to be a bit more careful with your spending than you have been. It’s tempting to splurge on gifts for your family or some new home decor, but stick to a budget!
