Welcome to November, Taurus! After a tumultuous October, Mercury retrograde in Scorpio finally ends on Tuesday, November 3, but not without drama. Election Day may bring communication mishaps galore, so try to take time for yourself if these things tend to stress you out. All retrogrades have a shadow period, which is a week or so where the effects still linger, and it’s likely that you’ll really feel it for this retrograde. Just remember that you’ll come out on the other side of this soon.
You’re one of the most sensual signs of the zodiac, Taurus, as your ruling planet is lovely Venus, goddess of beauty, love, and abundance. Her masculine counterpart (out-dated binary and gendered terminology often appears in astrology, but each and every one of us contains both masculine and feminine traits) Mars has been retrograde since September, which likely had a negative effect on your libido. Lately, new relationships may have flickered out just as they began to get interesting. Thankfully, Mars goes direct in Aries on Friday, November 13, adding much-needed oomph to your sex life. You’ll be inspired to try something new with a partner or masturbate more than once in a day. Orgasms provide stress relief, so get to it.
The next day, Saturday, November 14, is a powerful day of transformation. There is a new moon, which represents fresh starts, in Scorpio, the sign of rebirth. This particularly dark night sky helps you redirect your focus inward. Carve out time for meditation or for a long bath to reflect. It’s been a stressful few weeks on top of a stressful year, to say the least. It’s important to do what you can to find moments of joy for yourself, even with all the chaos going on around you.
When the sun enters Sagittarius on Saturday, November 21, you may feel as if a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. As the sign of adventure, Sagittarius season brings joy for luxurious Taurus. You may have felt a bit lethargic lately, and this time brings a spring in your step and inspires you to reach out to friends and start creative projects. On that same date, Saturday, November 21, your ruling planet Venus enters sex-obsessed Scorpio. It’s the perfect weekend to try a new kink or give sex magic — the witchy practice of setting intentions for your orgasms — a go. Why not summon something you’ve been dreaming of, like that big promotion you deserve, while getting off?
