Today's Horoscope This week This month
Scorpio horoscope for November 2023
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of November in Scorpio, whether your birthday is this month or you have already had it, this is your birthday month and the launch of a new solar year. This year there is nothing subtle about this and instead of inching your way into your new solar year, it has rushed forward to greet you full on. By the time the Sun returned last month Mars, Mercury and the dwarf planet Ceres were already in Scorpio, giving you all the resources to not only move into this new solar year with confidence but a new two year Mars cycle.
Until he leaves on 10th November Mercury is giving you everything needed to keep your head in the game, think on your feet and to ensure the communication lines are open. Normally Mercury will focus on cementing your choices, decisions and plans for this new solar year but with Venus not even returning until early next month to give your heart a voice, it is too soon for that. It is after Mercury leaves that the remaining pack will become an even tighter unit and by the time the Sun leaves on 23rd November, Mars on 24th November and Ceres on 25th November they will be tightly aligned.
This will make the final days of your birthday month some of the most powerful. In the meantime, this will also have a powerful impact when they return to your income sector on mass, just 10 days after Mercury's return on 10th December will begin the first planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence this year. By the time the Sun, Mars and Ceres return to begin the most potentially lucrative months of both 2023 and 2024, Mercury will be giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game and to think on your feet. Meanwhile, Venus will begin the month working with planets in your relationship sector to get the month off to a good start when it comes to friendship and relationship building, before taking your heart on a nostalgic trip down memory lane from 8th November.
Love & RomanceIt was an eclipsing Full Moon in your relationship sector late last month that allows you to move into the new month with a sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, but also aware of the support that you have. This was a Full Moon that will always fall at some point during your birthday month, putting a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test at what is an important point in each year for both. The difference this year is that with Jupiter in your relationship sector, as you moved into your birthday month and new solar year this made it clear that this was a big year on the relationship front.
At the same time, the Sun and the rest of the planets that returned to Scorpio with him last month also found and moved into a friendly aspect to Saturn in your romantic sector for the first time in three decades, making it clear that this would also be a big year for matters of the heart and all things romantic. It is Venus, the planet of love who will help you capitalise on both and especially when it comes to the doors open to the past. Venus will start the month in your friendship sector where she has already formed a friendly aspect to Jupiter in your relationship sector and will form another to Uranus there before leaving on 8th November.
This will get the month off to a good start when it comes to friendship and relationship building. It is then that Venus will return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart where she will take your heart on a nostalgic trip down love's memory lane that will end with her return to Scorpio early next month. While Saturn will turn direct in your romantic sector on 4th November, Neptune will remain in retrograde motion there for the rest of the month while both planets in your relationship sector are in retrograde motion for the rest of the year. Venus will be in a position to help you get the most out of the doors open to the past and second chances on the romantic and relationship front.
Business & CareerProfessionally things are settling down into a stable pattern that will continue for the rest of the year, with last month finally bringing you to a point where there will be no more changes but on both the job and career fronts you have everything needed to bring this professional year home. On both the job and career fronts this has not been an ordinary year, in terms of what you would normally expect. On the job front, what you would normally expect is the dwarf planet Eris and the asteroid Chiron would be in your work sector, but in retrograde motion at this time of year not particularly active.
However, this year you not only had Jupiter in your work sector until May, but the North Node returned for its first visit in 17 years in July and won't leave until 2025. The North Node will always have its eye on the future while Jupiter has given work and job matters so much thrust that you will continue to benefit from this for years to come. However, apart from the Moon's monthly visits, things will stay the same, giving you a team and a platform that isn't going to shift and change on you. You will get a better read on this and on work and job matters when the Moon moves through your work sector from 23rd November to 25th November.
The timing couldn't be better, for the Moon will be here, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters when the Sun returns to your income sector on 23rd November, Mars on 24th November and Ceres on 25th November. Meanwhile, while Venus and Juno's departure from your career sector last month ended all planetary activity on the career front for the year, with Venus having wrapped up her longest visit in our lifetime and Juno, the queen of commitment her first visit in four years, this left you with plenty of resolve and momentum. The Moon will make its first visit since Venus and Juno left from 4th November to 7th November, with a chance to tie up loose ends.
MoneyIt is business as usual on both sides of the financial fence as you move into the new month, which means no planetary activity in either of your two money houses and not a lot happening. However, that is about to change and in a way that will change the dynamics of the rest of this financial year. There has been no planetary activity in your financial sector, the side of the financial fence where the focus is on your financial situation and money matters since the last planet left in May and there will be none until next year. However, when the Moon returns for its ordinary monthly visit from 27th November to 29th November it will be as a Full Moon, which means that something must change between the start of the month and then.
That something is the first planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence this year, starting with Mercury's return on 10th November. A Full Moon in your financial sector is only possible when the Sun is on the other side of the sky in your income sector, which it will be by then but with Mercury getting in first with a chance to use his smart head for money to get your head in the game and to think on your feet. Mercury is normally only here for 14 to 15 days and returning 13 days ahead of the Sun this should be a tag team, with Mercury tagging out as the Sun tags in. Instead, slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next month, Mercury will end 2023 and begin 2024 here.
If I were Mercury I would want to stick around too, for on the income front things are about to get very exciting and it all happens within the span of an extraordinary 48 hour period. In that time the Sun will return to your income sector on 23rd November, Mars on 24th November and Ceres on 25th November. In one fell swoop, this will turn the solar spotlight onto your income situation, matters and options just as Mars returns to fire up a drive to fight for what you deserve and will Ceres return to begin her first deep dive into your income needs and priorities in four years. Last year all planetary activity on the income front was over by Christmas but this year there is so much that it will take until February to play out.
