November gets its heat from the Blood Moon Eclipse, which is the highlight cosmic event of the month. Falling in the sign of Taurus, this Blood Moon Eclipse peaks early in the month on November 8 and colors the remaining weeks ahead.
Eclipses are highly transformative portals of energy. They tend to bring endings, shifts, and quantum leaps into new states of being. They can reveal things, expose the truth, and change the direction we have been traveling in.
At their core, Eclipses bring fated or karmic events that can help push us to the next chapter of our soul evolution. A Blood Moon Eclipse is the most potent kind we can experience, so it’s safe to say we will all be doing some soul-leveling up in November!
As we journey through November, we will also be working with the energies of Mars Retrograde. Mars Retrograde can sometimes make us feel sluggish or can heighten feelings of burnout if we have been doing too much or pushing too hard.
Mars retrogrades the least out of all the planets, so we tend to feel more sensitive to its retrograde motion.
The month of November ends with Jupiter stationing direct in the sign of Pisces. This will be the last time Jupiter will be in Pisces for the next 12 years, so this is energy we will definitely want to make the most of.
Jupiter in Pisces can be creative and can help us evolve in our spiritual awareness. Perhaps whatever November brings, we will be able to look at things from the lens of Spirit, understanding that Earth is just our school and that only love is real.
Let’s take a closer look at the key dates for November-
November Astrology 2022
November 4- Sun Joins Southern Cross Star, Acrux
For those living in the Southern Hemisphere, you may be familiar with the Southern Cross. This small constellation is featured on the Australian and New Zealand flag and is an important identifier in the southern skies. On this day, our Sun aligns with the brightest star in the Southern Cross, Acrux. Acrux is the base of the cross and is aligned with abundance, success, blessings, and honor. Channel the energy of this day by focusing on the many blessings around you!
November 8- Blood Moon Eclipse in Taurus
This is the headline event for the month! A Blood Moon Eclipse occurs when we have a Total Full Moon Eclipse. The totality of the Eclipse causes the Moon to take on a reddish hue, hence the name Blood Moon. Blood Moon Eclipses signify endings and can close a door somewhere in our lives. This closed door may be hard to navigate at first, but eventually, this closed door can lead us to a higher path, even if it doesn’t seem that way at first. Falling in the sign of Taurus, this Blood Moon Eclipse may stir themes relating to money and relationships – the two may even be intertwined! On a deeper level, this Eclipse may also help us to push past some blockages around feelings of worthiness, or issues around our worthiness may come up to be challenged or addressed. If you are dealing with a challenging situation around this Eclipse, see if you can focus on where feelings of being unworthy may be blocking you or creating the issue. See if you can claim your worth, get clear on what worthiness or being worthy means to you, and then proceed from that place.
November 8- Mercury Cazimi
Right under the Blood Moon Eclipse, Mercury will align with the Sun. This event is known as Mercury Cazimi and indicates a new cycle of awareness, mental growth, and deeper awareness. As Mercury aligns with the Sun, we can gain new clarity and begin to see things from a new and sharper perspective. Things that were cloudy or confusing can become clearer. This can be heightened by the Eclipse energy which can also illuminate and unlock a higher truth. Be sure you are speaking and communicating your truth under this energy, as any lies or deceits can be more easily exposed.
November 9- Sun Opposite Uranus
A day after the potent Blood Moon, the Sun moves to be opposite Uranus, the planet of awakening and surprise. This could cause the Eclipse to bring some surprising news or some information that helps to awaken and shift our consciousness. Whatever new insights come to the surface, we will probably find that we need to make a clear-cut change. Whenever Uranus’ energy is strong, we can feel a little unsettled or unstable, so if this resonates, come back to grounding exercises or spend time in nature.
November 11- 11/11
A magical day of alignment and wishes! 1111 is a powerful angel number that indicates alignment and being in Divine harmony. When we are in this state, we can feel balanced in our mind, body, and soul. This balance can help us to create and lead our lives from a place of wholeness rather than lack or scarcity. To channel the energy of this day, work to raise your vibration so you can feel centered in your Higher Self. Here is a ritual you can try. For maximum benefits, try it at 11:11 am.
November 16- Venus enters Sagittarius
Venus has been traveling alongside the Sun in Scorpio for the last few weeks, infusing her energy deep into the core of who we are. While Venus traveled through Scorpio, she was helping us to dig deep and uncover what we truly value and yearn for in our lives. We may now have a deeper understanding of how love shows up for us, and how we need love to show up for us. Venus will now enter Sagittarius, which is a much lighter zodiac for the planet of Love. In Sagittarius, Venus will be helping us to return to a state of lightness and joy. Venus in Sagittarius helps us to focus on our friendship connections and create a more balanced social life.
November 19- Retrograde Mars Square Neptune
Mars is traveling retrograde until January of 2023, so this is an energy that is going to keep coming up for us as we move through the rest of the year. On this day, Retrograde Mars is in a Square or 90-degree angle with the planet Neptune. This can create some stagnant energy that can make us feel foggy or confused about how to move forward. The road ahead may not be clear, but this is ok. Mars Retrograde is a time to take things slow, to make time for pause, and to not rush into making a decision. Neptune also only clouds things when it is trying to get us to go within and think with our hearts rather than our heads. Trust your intuition at this time, especially if you have to make a decision.
November 22- Sun in Sagittarius
The Sun moves into the fire sign of Sagittarius, which is represented by the arrow of the archer. The arrow moves with intention, making its way to the target. While the arrow will eventually land where it’s supposed to, it’s really about the journey, and that is what Sagittarius Season can remind us of. We may have our goals and dreams, but if we are miserable as we are getting there, it may be time to adjust our approach. Sagittarius’s energy inspires us to find wisdom in the journey rather than just focusing on the end result. With the Sun moving out of the water sign of Scorpio and into the fire sign of Sagittarius, we may also feel a lightness emerging or the inspiration to learn new things.
November 23- Sagittarius New Moon
A new lunar cycle begins, and we can feel the Eclipse energies dissipating. Whatever the Eclipses were meant to stir in your life has likely been delivered, and you can now begin thinking about the next chapter. This New Moon carries beautiful, light energy that will be a welcomed relief after all the intensity of the first half of the month. There is fantastic energy around this New Moon for manifesting, attracting abundance, and focusing on the positive side. In fact, if you are looking for a silver lining, the Universe will surely present one under this New Moon. This really is a lovely New Moon, so make the most of it by setting intentions, refreshing your space and energy, and thinking of ways to bring new inspiration into your life.
November 23- Jupiter Direct
Jupiter stations direct after being retrograde since July. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, so its moves will always be felt! As Jupiter has been traveling retrograde, it has made its way from Aries back into Pisces. This is the last time Jupiter will spend time in Pisces for the next 12 years. Ancient astrologers said that when Jupiter was in your sign, you were given an extra dose of good luck. So, if you are a Pisces Sun, Moon, or Rising, be sure to soak up those extra good vibrations! As Jupiter wraps up its journey in Pisces, we may begin to feel the culmination of any lessons. Jupiter in Pisces can help to expand our creativity and our connection to Spirit. This would be a great way to honor any expansion or growth when it comes to your spiritual connection and your creativity.
