Welcome to Scorpio season, dear cow! The Sun is slinking along in the sign of sex, death, and rebirth, and it's finding you focusing on your partnerships. The start of the month will be particularly busy: On November 3, your ruling planet Venus will connect with Saturn, and the Sun will connect with Neptune. This will create an easy flow around communication, and it'll offer some stabilizing energy around what would otherwise be an ultra dramatic full moon—yes, there's also a full moon! And it's in your sign, Taurus. The full moon lands on November 3 (or the 4th if you're on the East Coast). Venus will oppose Uranus on the same date. Unexpected schedule shifts will annoy the heck out of you, and you'll find a major climax around a relationship issue will take place.

Mercury enters Sagittarius on November 5, which will find you discussing some sensitive topics. Everything from sex and intimacy, to death and mourning, to debts and taxes will be up for conversation. Topics you want to avoid, or are afraid to talk about, will be up for conversation when Mercury goes through blunt, straightforward Sagittarius.

These themes continue to be at the fore of your life when Sagittarius season kicks off on November 21. Sag season will be an especially auspicious time for you to let go of the past and move forward toward your destiny— Sagittarius is the centaur, always on the hunt with its bow and arrow. Where do you want to point yours, sweet cow?

Venus enters your opposite sign, Scorpio, on November 7, bringing blessings to the relationship sector of your chart! Sweet Venus can find Scorpio's intense energy overwhelming— so expect things to get intense in your relationships. That said, this is a wonderful occasion to get to know your partners on a deeper level.

November 16 is an especially lucky day for love (and for any kind of partnership, really, even if it's non-romantic) thanks to Venus meeting with Jupiter. Definitely mark this day on your calendar, as well as November 18, which brings the new moon in Scorpio. This new moon is a wonderful time for you to cast a love spell, as it will be bringing a fresh start to your partnerships.

Sag season will be an especially auspicious time for you to let go of the past and move forward toward your destiny.

Saturn makes a harmonious connection with Uranus on November 11. These two planets couldn't be more different. Saturn rules structure and commitment, while Uranus is the wild card of the zodiac, bringing surprises wherever it goes. When these two planets are able to connect productively, though, the atmosphere is very supportive for risk-taking.

This is a powerful time for you to let go of the past, and you'll find yourself connecting to your intuition on a deeper level. It's said that Taurii are resistant to change, and it's true that you can be very stubborn, but you're breaking some bad habits now that have overpowered you for too long. You're ready to take a risk—which is rare, and special, for you.

Venus connects with Neptune on November 16. Fairytale romance vibes will be in the air, as Venus rules love and Neptune is a planet of fantasy. This is a wonderful time to connect with your lovers, but even if you're not in the mood to make out, this will still be an excellent time to meet with friends, make art, and even escape from reality through dancing, music, or whatever other means you're inclined to, Taurus.

Watch out for harsh vibes on November 19 when warrior planet Mars clashes with the lord of the underworld, Pluto. People will be in an aggressive mood, and you'll have to contend with some control freaks: Power struggles will be in the air! Don't plan a cute date or important business meeting for this day.

Venus connects with Pluto on November 21, which is another exciting day for you to connect with your partners, as you'll be learning much more about them and going beneath the surface beyond small talk or superficial topics, like about their values and philosophy on life. Good luck this month, Taurus, and see you in December!
