It’s Scorpio season, which means that everything is much deeper than it seems. That harmless crush you have?

All in all, your November 2023 horoscope may have you swinging from one fixation to the next, but it won’t be without its fun moments. In fact, by Sagittarius season, the mood of the month lightens, allowing you to mellow out just in time for Thanksgiving.

- Nov. 22: Sagittarius season begins
- Nov. 27: Gemini full moon
November 2023’s Astrological Overview Begins Gradually
The first major event of the month takes place on Nov. 13, as the sun and moon link up in the fixed water sign of Scorpio. Though this new moon won’t be an eclipse, it will still spotlight some intense emotions since it’s ruled by Mars, which is also currently in its home sign of Scorpio. With an overwhelming presence of planets in the Scorpio-ruled house of every sign’s birth chart, there will be a strong desire to exercise determination, resilience, and self-control during this new moon. You may find yourself investing much of your time and energy into a plan or project that requires your unwavering focus and motivates you to dive in deep.
However, since the moon is considered to be in the sign of its fall, there may be a fear-based mindset co-existing with your fixated efforts. As you pursue new endeavors, make sure you’re not operating from a scarcity mindset or neglecting your innate needs. Accomplishing a goal shouldn’t require you to put your body or emotions on the back-burner.
On Nov. 17, the sun and Mars will meet at 25 degrees of Scorpio, creating a cazimi. A cazimi happens when a planet exactly conjoins the sun, which is said to be a period of renewal and rejuvenation for the planet in question. Mars cazimis take place every two years, and they signify a surge in motivation, momentum, and focus. This is especially relevant this year, since Mars is in its home sign. The last time a sun-Mars cazimi took place in Scorpio was in 1991, so you can expect the clarity around the goals and pursuits tied to the Scorpio-ruled house in your birth chart to be pretty impactful over the next two years.
The sun shifts into the buoyant, adventurous sign of Sagittarius by Nov. 22, pivoting the collective’s focal point to freedom, hope, and increased wisdom. As the mutable fire sign ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius season promotes an abundance mindset and the desire to know and experience all that life has to offer. Instead of moving with slow, deliberate caution, there will be a surge in spontaneous behaviors that enlighten and inspire. If you’ve been weighed down by the heaviness that tends to come along with Scorpio season, expect to feel a strong sense of excitement and liberation as this season unfolds. Radical honesty also tends to be a symptom of Sagittarius season, so be mindful of the messages you choose to share. You may be more prone to speaking prematurely.
The month closes with a full moon in the curious, conversational sign of Gemini on Nov. 27, shedding light on unanswered questions and detailed discoveries. On this day, the desire to gain more information and insight on a particular topic will be illuminated. You may also come to find that you still have plenty to learn about a specific interest or concern, prompting you to research and educate yourself. Since Mercury’s the ruler of this full moon, it’ll be a useful time to engage in discussions with your peers. Remain teachable and open-minded so you’re able to walk away with a valuable shift in perspective.
Here’s what each zodiac sign can expect from November’s astrology:
Aries Zodiac Signs (March 21 - April 19)
November begins with you doing a deep-dive into your shared resources, assets, and responsibilities, particularly during the Scorpio new moon on Nov. 13.

You’ll be shifting your focus to adventurous new travels and experiences as the sun shifts into the hopeful sign of Sagittarius.
