November 2020 Scorpio Overview Horoscope

November Snapshot

The tension of 2020 is reaching a full boil as November begins, but there’s a silver lining: It’s Scorpio season until November 21! While that doesn’t make you immune to what’s happening in the world, you will be better able to compartmentalize (which is different from denial, btw) and focus on some of your own plans and pursuits. When you feel out of control, try to manage the things you CAN change instead of what you can’t. As a Scorpio, you’d rather have everything go your way, but if this year has taught you anything...

This month, three retrograde planets turn direct (forward): Mercury on November 3, Mars on November 13 and Neptune on November 28. You endured communicator Mercury’s backspin through your sign from October 13 to 27, then its dip into Libra and your twelfth house of surrender and rest since then. If you’ve felt worn out or mentally exhausted, these cosmic course corrections will start to shift all of that. 

On November 12, your ruler Pluto will make its third and final connection to truth-teller Jupiter in Capricorn, shaking up your communication house. Something you’ve been keeping inside—or news you’ve been awaiting—could come out into the open. Look back to April 4 and June 30, the last two Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions, for clues of what may surface now.

Grounding energy arrives on November 21, when the Sun moves into Sagittarius and your anchoring second house. Start building some of those big birthday plans into concrete goals. For the next month, new opportunities for work and money could arrive. But the stars saved the most impactful moment for last: a November 30 Gemini lunar eclipse in your eighth house of intimacy and shared finances. A very close relationship could undergo a surprise plot twist.

Week 1: November 1-8

Good to go—finally!

At last! On Tuesday, November 3, the polls swing in your favor as Mercury, the planet of communication and technology, ends a three-week retrograde that had YOU in its crosshairs. From October 13 to 27, the quicksilver planet backed through your sign, making you feel wildly misunderstood or attacked. Not what anyone needs during these already troubling times!
Since October 27, Mercury’s been reversing through Libra and your twelfth house of hidden agendas, closure and rest. You may have waved a white flag or two, surrendering certain battles and choosing to focus on the things you CAN control (Hint: That’s not other people).
Once you’ve cast your vote, it’s time to let those recent troubles go, Scorpio. Distressing dreams, hidden information, the fear of folks whispering behind your back—everything will be clearer moving forward (including your own intentions). Spoiler alert: On November 10, Mercury will return to your sign for a second, retrograde-free trip that will last until December 1. All those backlogged messages and ideas you thought had gotten lost in the void could resurface for a brilliant second chance!

Week 2: November 9-15
Speak up!

Get ready to share your message, Scorpio. Your ruling planet, secretive Pluto, connects with outspoken Jupiter this Thursday, November 12, for their final summit of 2020. They’ll unite in Capricorn and your communication sector, prompting you to voice an idea or feeling that’s been brewing all year.
It begins on Thursday, November 12, when auspicious Jupiter makes its third of 2020’s three connections to transformational Pluto. These planetary powerhouses only align every 13 years, and they’ve already done so on April 4 and June 30. Look back to those dates. Did you have a perspective-shifting conversation, an aha moment or some kind of breakthrough in your mindset?
This grand finale Jupiter-Pluto conjunction could help it all make sense. Or it could incite a power struggle in which you become clear that you’ll never just “agree to disagree” with a certain person, whether that’s about the recent U.S. election or some other clashing beliefs. Can you choose to accept the things (and people and minds) you cannot change? It may be the fastest route to inner peace. But don’t stop fighting for your ideals just because you refuse to engage in a Twitter war with a troll or to take the bait of a bully who pushes your buttons. Focus on sharing your message where you can be most impactful.

Tending to your health can also work wonders, so minimize stress levels and ramp up self-care. On Friday, November 13, energizer Mars wakes up from a two-month retrograde in Aries and your sixth house of wellness. You may have slipped off the wellness wagon sometime since September 9 or dealt with frustrating red tape in an attempt to get organized. From today forward, you can start resuming your clean eating and regular workouts. But be sure to ease back into that groove, Scorpio—you don’t want to injure yourself by overdoing it.
Your “personal New Year” arrives on Sunday, November 15, when the annual Scorpio new moon presses a hard reset and kicks off a fresh six-month cycle around your passions and goals. Between now and the April 26, 2021, Scorpio full moon, you could make serious headway! 

Week 3: November 16-22

A little less conversation, a little more action

On Tuesday, November 17, mouthy Mercury in your sign will oppose disruptor Uranus in your relationship zone. A close person could push your buttons, and you won’t be able to bite your tongue. Just be careful how quickly you respond because your clapbacks could cut more deeply than intended. Play fair! It also happens to be National Unfriend Day, and, well, you don’t want to find yourself unwittingly “celebrating” this holiday—at least not with the people you truly care about.
On Saturday, November 21, the Sun slides into Sagittarius and heats up your work and finance zone for a month. Are you ready to move from the talk or idea phase to action? Start building those buzzy birthday wishes into something tangible. As the Sun leaves your sign and moves into your stabilizing second house, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get productive!
Sagittarius season also whets your appetite for life’s luxuries. Put a few posh presents on your holiday gift list or splurge on something special for your favorite peeps, especially the ones who stuck loyally by your side throughout this challenging year.

Week 4: November 23-30

Imagination inspiration

Love and money occupy the spotlight this week as November goes out with cosmic fanfare. On Saturday, November 28, hazy Neptune wraps a five-month retrograde in Pisces and your fifth house of romance and creativity. Doubt and insecurity may have plagued your love life, or maybe an ex kept creeping back into the picture. A passion project you were excited about earlier this year could have lost steam. As Neptune corrects course, prepare for your artistic and romantic engines to rev again. Unleash your imagination!
Shared finances and intimate ties are the subject of the Gemini lunar (full moon) eclipse on Saturday, November 30, which lands in your eighth house of merging. A brewing joint venture or simmering sensual connection could cross into official territory. Or under this full moon of extremes, you might abruptly part ways with a longtime collaborator. A large lump sum might land in your bank account (or maybe leave it). There’s a spiritual and karmic aspect to this eclipse, so look at anything that happens through the lens of “energy” and the Law of Attraction. Cause and effect ARE linked!
This is the first Gemini eclipse in a series touching down on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis from June 2020 until December 2021. Everything from your cash flow to your confidence, from your partnership to your property will be astrologically overhauled. If you didn’t grasp the link between your self-worth and your net worth, you’ll see it soon enough.
