November Audioscopes: Reclaiming What’s Yours This Scorpio Season

Ever wonder how the zodiac relates to your sound? Use our November Audioscopes to find out what the universe has to say about you and your audio journey.

With the sun in powerful, deeply transformative Scorpio, we are called to rise up and step into our inner power, as well as assess and evaluate parts of our life that require rebirth to align ourselves with our highest goals and desires. Now is the time to purge anything that is draining or not serving us in the long term; the process isn’t pretty, but it’s a necessary part of growth. Mercury retrograde in Scorpio (Mercury rules communications, plans, technology, and short term travel) brings deep intimacy to the forefront on all levels. Thinking will be more critical and conversations will be more honest.

The upcoming Full Moon in Taurus offers us stability and comfort in such a trying time. Despite the heavy energies, the planets and aspects bring themes of vulnerability, trust, expansion, collaboration, abundance, and deep healing.

Entering into Sagittarius season, we can take the painful lessons and wisdom we gained through Scorpio and reclaim the future we deserve—on our terms.

Read your November Audioscopes below! I suggest reading both your Sun and rising sign (also known as your Ascendant), which is the zodiac sign of the sun ascending on the eastern horizon when you were born, indicating how you are perceived externally—aka your mask.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You seem to have this boundless amount of energy, and even more so when it comes to projects you’re passionate about. Your hardworking nature allows you to put your all into everything you do, but can also leave you exhausted and without much reward to show for it.

Scorpio season shines a light on your routines and how you can better manage and distribute your time and energy, avoid burnout, and make sure your return matches the effort you put in. You’ve been learning lessons around healing the wounded masculine energies (asserting yourself, taking action, etc.). Taking the time to look at the little details and getting things in order may not be your inherent nature, but it will give you a chance to see where you’ve misplaced your energy in ways that don’t serve you in the long term and help you create a stronger sense of personal value and empower you in a more efficient way. Slow down and celebrate your accomplishments.

Audio Tip: Pick a designated day of the week as your “Music day.”

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

It’s time to transform your partnerships—whether it be work, significant other, or friendships—and really take stock of them. Are these mutually beneficial connections or are they surface level? Are these invested partnerships going to make it into the next stage of your life? Will these relationships help facilitate your growth in the future or keep you stagnant?

As one of the most stable signs, you’re known to hold on to your investments and possessions with a death grip, material and otherwise. Looking at the true quality of your relationships brings you closer to your inner divinity, including who and where you are in this moment. Whatever gets lost in the process wasn’t meant to follow you into the next stage, and the partnerships that do make it tell you everything you need to know.

Audio Tip: Share your creations (even if they’re not complete) with someone you’re close with.

Gemini  (May 21 – June 20)

With Mercury retrograde in Scorpio, there will be an increased effect on you communications, conversations, and plans. Logic and reason won’t be as effective and reliable; you’ll notice a veil lifted on the communications you share with others. The conversations you choose to engage in will tell you much more beyond just words—it’s not what you say, but how you say it. 

This is the perfect time to embrace and be transparent with feelings you might have pushed aside. Take the time to really understand your inner dialogue. Be aware of what you share with others and watch out for arguments, but be willing to open up. Staying present and honest are the most powerful tools you have. 

Audio Tip: Write a song inspired by an honest conversation or situation. 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This may be the perfect time to take the ideas you’ve been sitting on and finally put them out into the world. Work with whatever energy comes up. As heavy as things might feel at the moment, they’ll come to pass; trust your intuition and the universe. You’ll be making some fated connections and opportunities—luck and abundance is on its way to you—but in order to receive these gifts, you’re asked to release past emotional burdens that are holding you back.

This is the best time to really connect with your highest self and visualize your future. Don’t be afraid to dream a little bigger than usual. While you may be confident in your own ability to make things happen, let the universe do the heavy lifting. After all, there are some things outside of our jurisdiction. Emotions will come up, but trust that things will work out for your highest benefit.

Audio Tip: Visit your local record store, explore, and find a new album that inspires you.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You have certain qualities that others dream of: a natural born talent for leadership as well as the confidence and ability to succeed in anything you set your mind to. However, sometimes your ego can put you in a box, limiting you from living the life you truly want to be aligned with. Scorpio season is going to hold you accountable.  

During this time, assess the decisions you’ve made thus far. You’re the only one responsible for your happiness and satisfaction, and you owe it to yourself to be honest and really dig deep. Feelings related to your career, purpose, and legacy will come up. If the structures you’ve invested in aren’t serving you, step into your inner power and be brave enough to take matters into your own hands. Create a future that satisfies your soul.

Audio Tip: Watch a documentary (or a few) of your favorite musicians. Pay attention to their stories.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You have the ability to close certain parts of yourself off when you are hurt, which is not something that everyone in your life may know about you. It will seem that Scorpio season is making a mess of your social circles and sense of community, but on a deeper level Scorpio is presenting the truth behind your social ties. This may show in the form of not having your needs met, being taken advantage of, or even a betrayal.  

You’re being asked to release the expectations and projections you put on others, and the disappointment that follows when you’re let down. By radically shifting your perspective and allowing people to show you who they really are (and believing them), you’re given the opportunity to connect to your inner divinity and step into your own power. Remember who you are, and through this you will open yourself up to equally beneficial connections that can truly help you heal and grow.

Audio Tip: Have a jam session with your friends who have the best taste in music.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You strive for harmony and peace, and are known for putting yourself out there in the name of love. However, Scorpio is known for peeling back the layers and revealing parts of ourselves that we hide away, things we don’t want to integrate. Acknowledging your less than aesthetically pleasing attributes isn’t your cup of tea; you might try to push away uncomfortable feelings of envy, shame, loneliness, and anger. Reclaim your emotions and own them fully.

Scorpio season will shine a light on your subconscious behavior and hidden motivations. You may have been hurt in previous partnerships, and now you’ll start to see how it’s manifesting and mirroring into your reality. Notice when you tuck parts of yourself away and recognize where it stems from. Opening up to compromise and empathy can help you unpack the difficult emotions and heal your relationship with yourself in a transformative way.

Audio Tip: Channel your emotions and write an angry punk song.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You’re going through intense lessons on how you view yourself, and how you move through the world. You prefer the elusive approach, and don’t like to force or cause too much friction. You know how to make your presence felt in your own unique way and still maintain that hint of mystery. There’s so much to be seen beneath your surface; you hold so much power and strength. You’re a natural born leader who leads from the heart rather than the ego. With Mercury in retrograde, logic and reason are on vacation. Initially, things might not make as much sense, but with your intuition being your guiding force, things might eventually make more sense to you right now. 

Now is the time to fully believe in yourself and your abilities. You have the power to see the true nature of things, beyond surface level projections, and not only that: you can harness the inner power to face it head on. That gift isn’t given to those faint of heart; it’s given to those who are real and honest enough to handle it.

Audio Tip: Play or sing a song in front of a mirror.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

One of your best talents is knowing how to take your passions to the next level, and expand them beyond measure. On the other hand, it’s quite easy to get caught up in the energy of the moment and over do it. With the Jupiterian influence of abundance, optimism, and luck, things can get beyond your control real quick if you’re not careful. This month you will be re-evaluating your relationship with finances, personal values, and how you use your resources.

Get grounded and practical with your means and financial resources during this time. You can still have fun, and your shadow side can come along for the ride, but make sure you’re the one in control. There is such a thing as “too much.”  Pay attention if you get a hard “NO.”

Audio Tip: Write a song using your most cherished method, instrument, or program. 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You can be rather restrictive on what you choose to share. You have so much knowledge and wisdom, but you keep a tight grip on what you want others to see. Vulnerability is not something you feel comfortable sharing with the world, but Scorpio season puts all of us in an uncomfortable position, whether we like it or not. How humbling and humanizing that experience is; but nonetheless, it’s not your style.

To experience true transformation, you must reclaim your voice. You’ll be coming face-to-face with the issues you have in expressing yourself and your ideas, especially when deep emotions are involved. Whatever you’re feeling, stand with full conviction of what you saying. Allow yourself to be contemplative and curious in your thoughts, and don’t be quick to judge yourself or others—Mercury retrograde in Scorpio is playing with all of our minds. Be compassionate to yourself when times get tough. Open up your heart and your mind will follow.

Audio Tip: Experiment with new sounds or instruments and play with someone you trust.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You may not be where you expected, but you are where you need to be for now. The size of your heart is larger than you realize; you constantly put yourself on the line for others, ready to risk it all, and you’re exceptional at being the carrier for other’s emotions. But now it’s time to give yourself as much as you give to others and to really put your emotional satisfaction on the table. Get down to your roots.

Aquarius, reclaim what nurturing and self-care means to you on an emotional level. Habits picked up in childhood or adolescence aren’t serving you like they used to. It’s okay to have ties to the past; however, learning to re-parent yourself, establish boundaries, and put your needs first is a gift that Scorpio season offers for when things get beyond your control or expectations. Welcome and accept it with open hands and an open mind.

Audio tip: Revisit old albums, songs, or poems that you’ve written.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You might be having X-ray vision right now, Pisces. You might be seeing things play out in the real world that have only been in your mind thus far. Now is the time to really let your creativity loose without judgement or fear. 

Scorpio season highlights the depth of emotions you feel on the daily, and now the spotlight is on you. Don’t take things too seriously; find outlets that allow you to express yourself fully, and share your vision with the world. You’ll not only create a deeper, universal understanding, but you’ll also allow others to see and accept the depth of their own inner world. Be as freaky as you want to be.

Audio Tip: Karaoke!
