Welcome to November, Gemini. Mercury retrograde also started in the middle of October which affects communication. Those under your sign tend to be fairly chatty because you're ruled by this messenger planet, which finally ends its retrograde and goes direct on Tuesday, November 3. Any communication mishaps you've had lately can be cleared up now, just remember to listen as much as — if not more than — you talk.
That day is also Election Day, and yes, it will likely be confusing. You tend to be drawn to this sort of chaos, however, so you'll be glued to the screen watching the results come in. Remember that you have a sensitive side, and it's OK to step away from the chaos and clear your head. Make sure to take a break from live-tweeting for the sake of your mental health.
Even though Mercury retrograde is over, watch out for fights and heated misunderstandings on Tuesday, November 10. Mercury re-enters intense Scorpio, adding a dash of drama to conversations and exchanges. Watch that quick-witted tongue of yours, Gemini, before you say something that you regret.
During the dark new moon in Scorpio on Saturday, November 14, make time for self-reflection.
You're a very sexual sign, and one of the biggest flirts of the zodiac. As if the pandemic hasn't made dating complicated enough, the Mars retrograde that's been happening since September has put a pause on the passion, as this planet rules things like sex and aggression. Thankfully, it goes direct in bold Aries on Friday, November 13. Expect sexy texts from crushes and break out your best nudes. It will be good to have you back in full force, you heartbreaker, you.
You're typically a social sign, always texting, tweeting, plotting, and planning, but you may feel unusually withdrawn on Saturday, November 14, during the dark new moon in Scorpio. This night is one for self-reflection. Treat yourself to take out and your favorite beauty ritual, then put your phone on airplane mode so you can meditate, if that's your thing. You can strut your way through nearly anything, Gemini, but you need to stop and check in with yourself once in a while to see how you're doing under all that glitter.
There is always something new to learn and never-ending outlets for your creative talents.
The economic implications of the pandemic affect all of us, and there is no shame if you're struggling right now. While no one, not even astrologers, can promise you that a job offer will appear out of thin air, ambitious Sagittarius season begins on Saturday, November 21, and during this time it's likely that you will take on a much more positive and motivated attitude towards your career and creative endeavors. The intellectual fire sign reminds you that there is always something new to learn and never-ending outlets for your creative talents.
November ends on an even more dramatic note than it began. A full moon and lunar eclipse in your sign happen on Monday, November 30, so expect the unexpected and don't make any major decisions, as you will be especially affected by this unpredictable energy. This holiday season may be more painful than others, as many of us are separated from loved ones due to COVID-19. That being said, you excel at making friends and understand the power of chosen family. If you feel lonely or anxious, reach out to as many loved ones as you can. Stay safe and see you in December.

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you're able to. If you can't, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
