November Astrology & Witchcraft Event Calendar- A Month Full of Hope, Love, & Thanksgiving
Welcome fellow witches and astrology enthusiasts! Each month I’ve been putting a witchcraft and astrology calendar together for all of us at Life Spirits to help us plan our spellwork and be aware of special events so we could make sure we are making the most of our time and energy. I’ve decided to help my fellow witchy friends by sharing this with you all since I’ve yet to see anyone else put one together monthly like this for everyone to share and use.
Of course, please let me know if there is something I need to add. The more we put our heads together on this, the better it will be for the collective.
Enjoy and Blessed Be!

Dia de los Muertos
Dia de los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, is a traditional Mexican holiday that honors and celebrates the lives of deceased loved ones.
In Santeria and magick, it is believed that during this time of year, the veil between the physical world and the spiritual realm is thinnest. This allows for easier communication and connection with the spirits of ancestors, making Dia de los Muertos an auspicious time for rituals and spellwork.

Venus enters Libra
After a month in analytical and detail-oriented Virgo, it will be a relief to have the planet of love and romance in a sign more compatible with its harmony-seeking nature. This transit encourages people to approach relationships with greater delicacy and sweetness, making it an excellent time to resolve any interpersonal conflict that arose during eclipse season or reach a peaceful settlement toward a shared objective. Venus in Libra is also a great transit for self-improvement, fine art appreciation, and cultivating a vibey style.

11:11 Gateway Portal Peaks
An energy portal is a doorway that connects us to higher realms, allowing for the flow of powerful energies and vibrations. These portals are believed to exist all over the world, but some are more potent than others. The 11:11 portal gateway is considered to be one of the most powerful and significant portals because it opens up a direct connection between our physical world and the spiritual realm.
November 13th —
New moon in Scorpio
The sun, moon, and Mars will align in Scorpio in direct opposition to Uranus, bringing deep emotions and unsettling secrets to the surface during this lunation. However, the energy of a new beginning comes with this lunar cleansing, so embrace the confusion and utilize it to create something worthwhile.
In the zodiac, the sun and Mars will produce a rare aspect known as a Mars cazimi. This celestial link occurs every two years, but it hasn't happened in Mars' native sign of Scorpio in more than three decades, making its energy particularly intense. In astrology, conjunction aspects usually signify the beginning of a new cycle, and when a planet joins forces with the sun especially, it gains additional reach and strength. As a result, November's Mars cazimi provides an opportunity to take action on things you're genuinely enthusiastic about, as well as make movements toward any aspirations that have long simmered beneath the surface of your spirit.
This intimate new moon pushes us to form friendships that have the potential to alter our lives. Let go of the past and prepare to begin over.
Sun in Scorpio opposition Uranus in Taurus
This element might make us nervous when unexpected developments disrupt even the most dependable preparations. To avoid anxiousness, practice meditation and grounding.

Thanksgiving Holiday- Celebrated 11/23 in the United States
Gratitude is a cornerstone of witchcraft, as it allows us to focus on what we already have instead of what we lack. By expressing gratitude, we are acknowledging and appreciating the blessings that have already been bestowed upon us. This not only helps us cultivate a positive mindset but also opens us up to receiving even more abundance in our lives.
So why use Thanksgiving as a way to manifest gratitude? Well, first and foremost, it is a holiday centered around giving thanks for all that we have. For witches, this is a perfect opportunity to tap into the collective energy of gratitude being expressed by society and amplify it with our own magickal powers.
Furthermore, Thanksgiving has its roots in ancient harvest festivals, where people would give thanks for the bounty of the Earth. As witches, we understand the importance of honoring and connecting with nature, and Thanksgiving provides the perfect backdrop for doing so.
November 24th —
Mars enters Sagittarius
We shall be ready to act in the following six weeks when the warrior planet enters the sign of the Archer. This is an excellent opportunity to take aim and shoot for our goals. We're hopeful about what we'll find, whether we're traveling, going to school, or searching for the truth.

Full moon in Gemini
The Christmas season is soon coming, and the full moon in adaptable Gemini provides us with the energy and stamina to do all of our festive errands before life becomes too hectic.
This lunation squares up against Mars, urging us to act on our ideas and grab the full moon momentum. A difficult lunar square to the no-nonsense planet Saturn, on the other hand, soberly reminds us of our limits — thus, although it's fine to feel inspired and view the glass as half-full, it's also necessary to be realistic about what you're dealing with. Use your frustrations to be innovative, or use your instincts as a guide. Hard effort and positivity will bring you where you want to go under this moon aura.
Mercury in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces
Avoid being drawn into arguments with those who refuse to see reason. Don't let obstinate, narrow-minded individuals steal your brightness.
