November 2020 Gemini Overview Horoscope

November Snapshot

The world may feel totally out of order, but this month’s stars help you bring calm to any chaos in your life. With the Sun in Scorpio and your sixth house of health and organization until November 21, focus on the things you CAN change: your habits, the way you eat and move, the conversations you choose to engage in. That may sound small in comparison to the big issues happening in the world, but there’s truly never been a better time to prioritize self-care and reduce stress.

This month, three retrograde planets turn direct (forward): your ruler, Mercury, on November 3, Mars on November 13 and Neptune on November 28. Stalled projects and choppy relationships could get back on track. Contrast this to September, where SIX planets were retrograde and it took twice as long to accomplish half as much. By the end of this month, only one planet (Uranus) will be retrograde. Onward!

November 12 brings a huge turning point as the third of 2020’s rare Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions makes landfall in Capricorn and your intimate eighth house. Around April 4 and June 30, the prior two dates, an intense change could have come around a relationship, either emotional or financial. Making sense of it all has required a lot of soul-searching and truth-telling. This last Jupiter-Pluto connection might finally solve the mystery.

Partnerships become the theme for the next four weeks once the Sun enters Sagittarius on November 21. But get ready for a huge solo reveal on November 30, when a groundbreaking Gemini lunar (full moon) eclipse powers up your first house of self and appearances. You could debut a passion project or find yourself making a bold start down a new path. All eyes could be on you, so be ready for your closeup!

Week 1: November 1-8

Buh-bye, glitches!

Cast your ballot for the end of cosmic chaos! On Tuesday, November 3, your ruler, Mercury, turns direct (forward) at 12:50pm EST. If you’re bound for the polls, grab your mask and make an afternoon dash to vote. Then, return home to celebrate mischievous Mercury’s direct (forward) spin—and a steady return to smooth communication, glitch-free technology and the ability to make travel plans (within Covid limitations, of course).
Mercury’s been retrograde since October 13, backing through Scorpio and your health zone for the first two weeks. Since October 27, your galactic guardian has been reversing through Libra and your fifth house of romance, passion and self-expression.
That’s a double whammy of random potshots at your health and unfinished biz in the relationship realm. Has a romantic reunion been tempting you to revisit the past, or perhaps a long-simmering issue has come to the fore? Now’s your chance to start scripting the next chapter. Mercury’s forward motion will give a needed boost to any creative ventures where you’ve lost traction and help you keep drama at bay.

Week 2: November 9-15

Karma time

Intensity and intrigue: incoming! On Thursday, November 12, truth-teller Jupiter makes its third of 2020’s three connections to secretive Pluto. As these two planetary power players align in Capricorn and your intimate, mysterious eighth house, the last puzzle piece could finally be revealed. Have you been hovering on the fence about whether to fully commit to someone emotionally, financially or in some other binding way? Look back to April 4 and June 30, the prior Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions this year. Parts of this story have already been written, and now you’re ready for the final chapter.
Since Jupiter and Pluto only connect every 12 to 13 years, this is a big deal! A relationship that’s got the power to go the distance could finally cross that threshold. Or things could go the opposite direction and you may finally cut the karmic cord that’s kept you bound to a toxic or difficult person. But don’t blame it on that individual! This is a deeper energetic pattern, one that could span lifetimes or stem back to your early childhood. Focus on transformation at a core level so you don’t attract that same unwanted frequency into your life again.

Speaking of your inner circle, on Friday, November 13, energizer Mars wakes up from a two-month nap in Aries. Since September 9, the red planet’s been retrograde in your eleventh house of collaborations and technology, causing tension to spike in both IRL and virtual group settings. From frustratingly endless Zoom conference calls to friction in friendships, this backspin tested Team Gemini. If you have been biting your tongue or unable to identify what’s really been troubling your ties, Mars’ forward move will help you clear the air and get your squad back on track.
Meantime, how about a health check-in? On Sunday, November 15, the year’s only Scorpio new moon beams in your sixth house of wellness and organization. Schedule those doctor’s appointments (even if you have to do them via tele-health), bring some green and clean eating back to your plate and reboot your exercise program. The gym may be closed, but there’s nothing stopping you from heading out for a hike or brisk walk, even if you have to bundle up. Load up your phone with some new playlists and add some dance breaks to your day. Or stock up on audiobooks so you can learn while you burn. No time to finish an entire tome?

Week 3: November 16-22

Relationship reset

Keep your stress levels in check on Tuesday, November 17, when mental Mercury (your ruler) opposes unstable Uranus across your axis of well-being. Someone could push your buttons and trigger an explosive reaction. Or you could get an icy, passive-aggressive response to one of your best ideas—not the reaction you were expecting. WTH?! Perhaps serendipitously, it’s also National Unfriend Day—so you may just want to stay off social media and politely reschedule your meetings and pitches for another day.
Friends and lovers will be heavily on your mind on Saturday, November 21, when the Sun glides into Sagittarius and your relationship sector for a month. If you’re the type of Twin who likes to plan ahead, this would be a nice time to get a jump on your holiday plans or gift lists. You’ll be especially thoughtful, so tend to your ties and prioritize the people who always have your back. Start gearing up for the November 30 Gemini lunar eclipse, when a big opportunity might call for you to quickly assemble a dream team.

Week 4: November 23-30

Re-energize your goals

This week is by far the most important one for you this month. For starters, on Saturday, November 28, foggy Neptune rouses from a five-month retrograde through Pisces and your career sector. If your ambitions have been adrift since June 22, or you’ve been rethinking big plans and life direction, you’ll be able to clarify your goals once again. Here’s hoping Neptune’s backspin also allowed you to do some helpful soul-searching that will inform your next big moves!
A seismic shift arrives on Monday, November 30, when a Gemini lunar (full moon) eclipse puts YOUR most cherished priorities on center stage. A solo venture or huge life change will be catalyzed by these momentous moonbeams. Have you been wanting to move to a new city, launch a business or set off on your own? Lunar eclipses sweep away what no longer serves us and makes it impossible to ignore what our hearts truly want.
This is the first Gemini eclipse in a series that will touch down on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis between June 2020 and December 2021. Look back to the Gemini new moon on May 22 and also the Sagittarius lunar eclipse on June 4 of this past year for clues of what may materialize now.
