Welcome to Pandora’s monthly astrology forecast. Here you’ll find news for the year, for the month and for dates this month when important changes are happening in our skies. You’ll also find words and videos explaining what they mean, how to handle them and how to know if they affect your chart specifically.
November 2022 In A Nutshell
November 2022’s monthly forecast features a mixed bag of inspiration and frustration. In “The Nerdy Hero”, learn about what happens when Mars— our will, drive, and desire— goes retrograde in cerebral, distractable Gemini. You may have to be extra careful with your words this month. The Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio may heighten some of this frustration and restlessness, perhaps playing out some of its themes on the political stage. We will look at some of the themes of this potentially dramatic Full Moon Eclipse in “Physical Freedom vs Emotional Entanglements”.
Thankfully, the New Moon in Sagittarius radiates hope, positivity and enthusiasm. In our video “The Wisdom of Foolish Hope,” learn about how our big expectations and imaginings of the future are supported by the Moon’s Grand Trine with Pallas Athene and Jupiter, which provide much needed grounding in emotional awareness. And don’t forget to check out our video on what it’s like when you have the North Node in Capricorn in your natal chart and you’re releasing habitual enmeshment with family in favor of independence and achievement in the outer world.
Long-Term Shifts in 2022
This year promises to be blessedly low-drama, in stark contrast to the last 2 years. This is because in the last 2 years there have been dramatic aspects formed between outer planets that have brought up a lot of emotions and triggered much reactive behavior among humanity here on Earth. The worst of it was during 2020, when Saturn and Pluto formed a conjunction we called the “Pandemic Hot Degree.” During 2020 that hot degree was transited by Jupiter and also Mars with devastating effects, arousing a lot of fear among humans worldwide and impacting the responses of governments and populaces to covid. Some countries have had an easier time handling the pandemic than others, and if you’re still trying to make sense of or process the pandemic’s impact on your life, this playlist will help: The Astrology of Pandemic Year 2020
We Pandora astrologers thought at the time that things would be winding down as 2020 came to a close, but at this point, I believe the reason why the USA’s response was so poor has to do with our impending Pluto Return in the chart of the USA, which is a topic for a video we’ll make this year.
As 2021 came on, I did say that things would get smoother and easier, which in general they have. The reason for this is that the Pandemic Hot Degree expired in December of 2020 and in 2021 a new theme emerged, which was based in the square between Uranus and Saturn. It was the only aspect in the sky that contributed to the tone of the year and it was not at all triggered or intensified by Mars, Jupiter or any other planet. This has meant that the overarching themes of 2021 have been caught up in the battle between traditional and progressive, authoritarian vs democratic and centrist vs fringe. But these themes haven’t been saturated through and through with the level of fear and oppression we suffered under during 2020’s Saturn/Pluto conjunction.
In 2022, it gets better still because absolutely NONE of the outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) form aspects to each other. Things should be calmer this year in general in much of the world. Except in the United States, where our nation’s Pluto Return hits its peak of precision this year–this will no doubt be rough. I’ll let you know our thoughts about it when the video is ready.

During 2022, Pluto is in Capricorn, Uranus is in Taurus, Neptune is in Pisces and Chiron is in Aries–exactly as they were in 2020 and 2021. This video explains what it means when a planet spends many years traveling through a sign (we call them “planetary eras”) and for these 4 planets, it still applies: Planetary Eras: Outer Planets In Signs In 2020. As of 2022, Saturn and Jupiter are no longer in Capricorn, so that part of the video no longer applies, but our videos about Saturn in Aquarius and Jupiter in Pisces and Jupiter in Aries will bring you current. This month, Juno begins her retrograde cycle, and you can see our video below about that too.
Mars in Gemini is the Nerdy Hero. Why? Mars is the warrior and represents our will and self-determination. Mars expresses himself positively with confidence, vigorous activity, and independence. Poorly expressed, Mars can be too dominating and overly assertive, running roughshod over everyone else, or alternatively, downright cowardly. So what happens when Mars is retrograde? When any planet goes retrograde, it is a time when we must redo and review in the area of that planet. And Mars in Gemini, the sign of communication, is a very verbal Mars. Therefore, Mars Retrograde is a time to reflect upon, correct and even take back the mistakes resulting from our hasty words and scattered actions. Watch our video to learn how to handle this potentially volatile time, and what landmarks dates of the retrograde cycle to look out for. If you have a planet in your chart placed between 8º and 25º of a Mutable sign, you will feel this Mars Retrograde strongly.
What is your destiny? Your natal North Node tells you. Here’s this month’s video in our ongoing series about the Nodes in the signs….
North Node in Capricorn:
Leave Home; Become A Self-Reliant Achiever
Your natal chart’s North and South Nodes offer important guidance about your evolutionary path and life purpose— both where you’re coming from and where you’re going to. If your North Node is in Capricorn (and your South Node is in Cancer), you are deeply attached to your roots. Whether you came from a cushy supportive home or a dysfunctional one, the feeling of being enmeshed with family is familiar, even comfortable. But in order to evolve in this lifetime, you need to nurture independence in yourself, leave the nest, and venture out into the larger world. It may feel strange and unfamiliar , but you need to individuate and be a “grownup.” Creating a family of your own and being its provider can be the solution to this particular nodal dilemma.
Learn more in our video, including a look at the charts of famous Capricorn North Node natives Oprah Winfrey and John McCain.
Mercury is direct in piercing Scorpio and conjoins the Sun on November 8th on what we call Greater Epiphany Day — a day when breakthroughs are possible, new understandings emerge and mental clarity and focus are at their height. This is like a natural peak on a wave. The weeks leading up to it are a great time to push into that day of natural insight. With Mercury in Scorpio, your insights can be cuttingly psychic and are best applied to matters of a deep emotional and psychological nature, or to mysterious subjects requiring focused investigation. Channel Mercury’s obsessive edge wisely and advantageously. If you need more material to intensely consider, look back at the most recent Mercury Retrograde, or prepare for the next.
November begins with the Fixed, Watery sign of Scorpio, In water’s stillness, there is sensitivity. Perhaps a quiet pond knows every falling leaf that disturbs its surface; so it is with Scorpio. It is as if the year is holding its breath while the shade of Death passes by. This is the time of the killing harvest, the slaughtering of animals, the shedding of blood. Scorpio reminds us that all things that are born also die, ourselves among them. Humbled, we pass deeper into the autumn cold. This year Scorpio runs until November 22.
On November 22, Sagittarius begins. This Fiery, Mutable sign carries an optimistic tone, reminding us to have faith. Winter is coming—craving warmth, we huddle together around the low-burning hearth fires and listen to the elders tell stories that give our lives meaning. In winter’s darkness we gather in groups and practice tolerance and hope. The days will continue to grow shorter until the winter solstice, the longest night of the year. In the meanwhile, we must trust that spring does indeed exist and will come again. Sagittarius runs until December 21.
If your birthday is coming, you’ll want your annual birthday reading (called a “Solar Return” reading) to happen in the month before your birthday–because your birthday is your Personal New Year. It’s the best time for setting resolutions, intentions and new life-directions. Get yourself in alignment with what your Greater Self wants for you this year, beginning with knowing what the plan is.

This Month’s Lunations
Each lunation (new or full moon) has a feeling-state that human beings will be prone to under it, a general mood.
“Physical Freedom vs Emotional Entanglements”
Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon in 16º Taurus on November 8, 2022
This Taurus Full Moon’s proximity to the North Node is what makes it a Lunar Eclipse. There is a strong push and pull between the stubborn nature of Taurus and the controlling nature of Scorpio. Meticulous Ceres in Virgo provides some support, but Saturn in Aquarius brings in pressure and tension. The polarity of Venus, Mercury and the Sun facing off with Uranus and the Moon suggests that this lunation could have an impact on your finances, not only personally but also the moneys you share with a partner or the investments you make. Saturn in Aquarius brings in political themes, a possibility that is underlined by the coinciding of this Eclipse with the USA’s midterm elections. Watch our video to learn more about how this Moon could have an impact on you and how to make the most of its potential for release in order to move towards a deeper security.
“The Wisdom of Foolish Hope”
New Moon in 1º Sagittarius on November 23, 2022
The New Moon in Sagittarius has a levity and feeling of inspiration embedded in it. The square to Vesta in Pisces might make it difficult to focus, but the grand trine with Pallas Athene in Cancer and Jupiter in Pisces brings in the themes of wisdom and emotional intelligence. This hopeful and positive New Moon is nurturing and encouraging. Jupiter is good at the big picture, while Pallas Athene’s head for strategy provides accurate perspectives to make up for Jupiter’s broad-stroked enthusiasm. The Water presence in this Grand Trine lends a passionate and deep note to what could otherwise err on the side of fluffy. Shoot for the moon and see where your arrow lands. Watch our video to learn more about what is possible during this New Moon.
Your Novemberhoroscope video will tell you more about these Full and New Moons. When checking your horoscope, always check your Rising sign first, then your Sun sign. Your Rising sign’s horoscope will generally work better.
