Your November Lunar Eclipse Horoscope, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

As if Scorpio season isn’t daunting enough, we’ve got a total lunar blood moon eclipse making its way over to us on Nov. 8. You heard that right — Nov. 8, as in, election day Nov. 8. Eek! 

During the peak of the eclipse, the moon will look as if it’s turned bright orange and red, creating a beautiful, fiery halo. You can expect feelings of conflict, spiritual shifts, and hostility to be evoked during this time, especially due to the current retrogrades. Four planets will be in Scorpio, and three planets will be in its sister sign, Taurus. These placements may cause an urgent desire for a life “reset” in one’s life. If you’re feeling unusually hostile, heard some sudden bad news, and/or have an insatiable urge to cut certain people and practices out of your life, you’re not alone here. 

Don’t be scared — we already survived one lunar eclipse this year, how bad can this one be? If you’re curious to see how your sun sign will be affected during this blood moon eclipse, stick around! I’m warning you, however, some signs may suffer more than others.


Money trouble awaits! During this time, be sure not to be too frivolous with your funds. However, at the end of the day, remember that you are in full control. I urge you to reevaluate some of your finances and allow financial issues that you may have been shirking for some time now to come to light. Stop burying your head in the sand – you’re only going to make your problems worse in the long run if you continue to avoid them. If you haven’t already, now might be a good time to start a “rainy day” fund & cut out frivolous spending.


Although it may feel like it, this eclipse is not personal. With sister signs Taurus and Scorpio being the most affected by the eclipse, it’s easy for y’all to feel as if the whole world is working against you. In this eclipse, I encourage Taurus to let go of feelings associated with how other people feel about them. It’s like that old mantra I used to repeat to myself every day in high school: “if they don’t know you personally, then don’t take it personal”.

When navigating through this eclipse, it’s most important for Taurus to remind themselves that the only person they should take judgment from is themselves. 

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20):

This eclipse may call on you to set some personal boundaries for yourself. Perhaps taking some time off of work and practicing self-care could serve to your benefit. If you notice any drama in your work, social, or family lives, I encourage you to simply back away. Seriously, Gemini, can you just stay out of the gossip — just this once? All in all, this eclipse season will tempt you to succumb to feelings of burnout — keep your passion ignited!


Friendships and relationships may be crumbling during this time. Instead of ruminating on feelings of loss, I encourage you to use these moments to reflect on who and what you actually want to keep in your life. This eclipse may also bring the true colors of any of your relationships to light. Remember that you’re not obligated to stay friends or in contact with anyone that you don’t want to. There’s nothing wrong with cutting that toxicity out!

LEO (JULY 23 – AUG. 22):

You can breathe easy here, Leo, there’s not too much that’s going to get shaken up during this eclipse. The November eclipse will activate your tenth house of career, so giving your work life some thought and re-evaluation could prove to be beneficial. This may also be a good time to learn more about your family history as well as to unpack some of those…  complicated childhood memories. If you’re thinking about buying that ancestry DNA kit, now might be the time!

VIRGO (AUG. 23 – SEPT. 22):

Again, there’s not a whole lot going on here. You may encounter some familial pressure and arguments, especially with siblings. This eclipse may serve as a time to “reset” and reevaluate relationships. You also may feel more inclined to absorb new information, but be careful not to be deceived by some things you may learn. 

LIBRA (SEPT. 23 – OCT. 22):

Oh, Libra. My lovely, lovely little Libra, now may be a time when you may be especially longing for some love. You may also feel discouraged in your relationship, but only if it is lacking the intimacy and reassurance that you desire. If you’re having trouble with a lack of compliments from your partner, now may be the time to confront them to discuss what is missing. You may also want to re-evaluate what you may want in the relationship

SCORPIO (OCT. 23 – NOV. 21):

Hello Scorpio, the star of the season! This eclipse may bring new love into your life. If your current relationships are stale, be alert for some rejuvenation! Make room for new things in regard to your love life. Yes, that means that now is the time to stop texting that ex, or frat boy, or Hinge dude, or whoever else may be wasting your time and blocking new opportunities to come your way. Although darker emotions may be illuminated in Scorpio during this lunar eclipse, it’s important to remind yourself that now is the time for a healthy self-reflection and a catalyst into your new era! Onto the next chapter, please!


Things may have been bringing you down for quite some time, Sagittarius. You may have been experiencing a lack of self-love, over-judgment, and just overall bad vibes and negative self-talk.

This eclipse will bring you an opportunity to break this repetitive cycle and come into a happier headspace. 

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22 – JAN. 19):

No road bumps here, Capricorn, this eclipse season encourages you mostly to simply rest and relax! Maybe you can invest in a spa day or some CBD products, it’s time to chill! Let go of superficialities in your perceptions and relationships and don’t spend too much thought or time on ruminating toxicities falling away. It’s time to make peace with yourself and practice some self-care. 

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20 – FEB. 18):

Aquarius – let go! Now is the perfect time to let go of a controlling parental figure, partner, or “friend”. If you feel as if you’re under someone’s thumb, the eclipse calls for that chapter of your life to be closed. You may also find yourself fixating on home improvement or side projects involving fixing-up material possessions. While this does not necessarily hail to bad omens, ask yourself: is it my bathroom that needs a renovation? Or myself?

PISCES (FEB. 19 – MARCH 20):

This eclipse season may call out a desire for you to lay low, and that’s okay! No offense, but it’s not all that bad to take a break from crying all the time, Pisces. Although things may seem relatively calm, it’s important for you to not overexert yourself, don’t give an arm and a leg to someone who won’t even give you the time of day. Now is the time to re-evaluate your toxic relationships and ask yourself: does this person being in my life help me or harm me? Save yourself some time in the new year and cut the fakes out, now.
