The sultry Scorpio wants you to embrace your desire for intimacy and inspect what we share with our nearest and dearest

She is the co-founder of ASTRAL ORACLES and author of Palpable Magic; a website exploring prose about sex, love, Los Angeles and the occult. Her sessions include natal chart readings, energetic clearing and activations, and tarot readings.

November kicks off with the Sun in Scorpio, encouraging us to focus on transformation, depth, intensity, and intimacy. As we travel through the sign of the Scorpion, power dynamics are highlighted, and we are asked to abandon the desire to control others, and instead choose to be vulnerable, open, and honest. As always with the sign of the Scorpion, we are hungry for truth. Scorpio season pulls the hidden out of us from the underworld, where we can expect deep insights and intuitive power. Relationship themes permeate in November, as we look to experience depth and passion in our connections with others.

The sultry Scorpio wants you to embrace your desire for intimacy, and inspect what we share with our nearest and dearest. As always with Scorpio season, our attention turns towards things with intensity, and we are beckoned to share our more hidden attributes, and get closer to those we love.

A New Moon in Scorpio on the 4th beckons us to set intentions and goals around our deepest desires, transformation and pursuit of intimacy. The following day, pleasure planet Venus enters Capricorn, encouraging us to embrace relationships with longevity and practicality. When Venus is in Capricorn, we are looking for integrity and commitment from our counterparts, with little tolerance for those who waste our time. Mercury, planet of communication, also enters Scorpio on the 5th, encouraging us to divulge secrets, investigate and perhaps facilitate a more vulnerable dialogue. This placement can make us more emotional, but in the same vein, more paranoid.

The main event of the month occurs on the 19th, with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Taurus. Eclipses are astrological wildcards, and can bring a slew of unpredictable events. Lunar eclipses can create unpredictable endings, designed to catalyse us into a rapid period of growth. In the sign of Taurus, we are evaluating what we no longer value, and themes of possessions and self-worth are accentuated. 

On the 21st, the Sun moves into the visionary sign of Sagittarius, giving us a sense of wanderlust and faith, after the intensity of Scorpio. Sagittarius season imbues our moods with a sense of adventure and drives us to expand our outlook. We are free-spirited and eager for experience. Helpful aspects from Neptune, the planet of imagination, give us a sense of inspiration and an urge to expand spiritually, whether through adopting a new philosophy, or finding deeper meaning in the experiences that have made you who you are today.
