What predictions does your monthly horoscope have for you? With Mercury and Mars in retrograde, November may get off to a stressful start. But don’t fret: After months of feeling stuck, we’ll feel a surge of energy and inspiration to break through the tough spots. And around Thanksgiving, planetary movements will bring about a feeling of ease and a flow of imagination. Safely spend time with loved ones (a virtual gathering is always an option!) and show gratitude for your time together.
And don’t forget about your four-legged loved ones when it comes to showing thanks. A special treat (or two!) and extra playtime will show them just how grateful you are for their companionship and cuddles.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
Never one to sit back and wait for things to come to you, you'll be more determined than ever to get whatever it is you're after and work through some major blocks to your success. Your pup or kitty will be a tremendous source of grounding right now: Sit with them as much as you have time for, cozy up (a warm, shaggy blanket will bring all the hygge vibes) and let yourself be present. This is a powerful month for you, Aries, and the more you can be a detached observer of the issues in your life—especially when it comes to your finances and goals—the more insight and inspiration you'll find to help you achieve your dreams.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
After you get through the bumpy beginning of the month, you'll hit your stride and your productivity will get a serious boost. And as the month progresses, it's all about learning and growing. You'll find new ways to take better care of yourself: Maybe consider taking walks with your adventurous kitty, or meandering through the last of the colorful fall leaves with your pooch. (Just make sure they have a cute coat on to keep warm in the chilly weather!) Through your self-care sessions, you might just gain a newfound sense of confidence in yourself. Not usually one to make waves, you'll find an inner voice of strength. Use it and your bravery may be rewarded!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a bustling month for Geminis! There's much to be done on all fronts, and your talent for multitasking will be pushed to the limit. You may also begin to realize who your true friends are when a conversation causes a rift within your circle of acquaintances. Don’t be shy about stating about how your feel (calmly and honestly, of course): You can only grow from the experience.
At the end of the day, know that you can always rely on your furry BFFs for comfort. Between your busy schedule and inner circle drama, be sure to find plenty of time to spend with your pets. You’ll both benefit from the extra cuddles and playtime!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Stay alert, Cancer. Challenges seem to come from multiple directions in November, but that only means you've got to think on your feet. Nothing is insurmountable—especially if you ask for help. You're going to be amazed at how others will come through for you if you let them. By the week of Thanksgiving, the planets line up to give you a much-deserved break, and time spent with family (even virtually) can turn out to be more harmonious than you expected. If you live in a multi-pet household, you may find that even your pets are getting along better with one another! (You may want to reward them for their gold-star behavior with extra-long walks on a dual dog leash.)
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Whether prepping for the holidays or just trying to get through your everyday to-do list, you'll have plenty to accomplish this month, Leo. Delays and miscommunication can throw a wrench into some of your plans, but don’t get discouraged: You'll find the determination and resourcefulness to finish the job.
At work, you'll find yourself playing both student and teacher roles as you learn new skills and then share your talent with others. Channel that same energy into pet parenthood, too. Read up on clicker training or agility training, for instance, and then get to practicing with your pet. It’s never too late for an old dog to learn new tricks!
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
According to your monthly horoscope, Virgo, you may finally be in a place to make a tough decision you've been mulling over for a while. Expect clarity to come mid-month: You may find yourself ready to sever ties with a job, relationship or another situation that needs a resolution. You'll still need to take several actions to prepare for whatever step comes next, such as saving up for a move or enrolling in school to ultimately make a career change, but in your heart, you're ready to move on. With the weight now lifted off your shoulders, celebrate with your fur kids. Whip up some extra-yummy treats for them (check out this recipe for pumpkin mini muffins for cats!) and indulge in your own fave dish—you deserve it!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
This is an interesting month for Libras at work, as you navigate back and forth between coworkers who can't seem to connect or collaborate. Try your best to stay out of any tension and instead focus on the tasks you've been assigned. Table any attempts to offer solutions until Thanksgiving week, when your ideas may be better received. (The holiday will have everyone in a better mood!) At home, you may find yourself clashing with a family member or partner over finances, but know that this can lead to better communication and compromise.
While you may be busy, don’t forget to keep your four-legged best friend busy, too. Electronic cat toys may be your saving grace when it comes to keeping kitties entertained.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Listen up, Scorpios: You may find yourself inspired to find creative ways to accomplish tasks at work or explore entirely new business ventures. But first, consider taking a “personal inventory” to see what your strongest skills are and what areas you need to work on. Remember this: Slow and steady wins the race in November.
While you may be super busy with work, try to find time to safely socialize (virtual happy hour, anyone?) or the month will come and go before you know it. Even just taking time to unwind with your pet will help you reset and slow down. We’re sure they could use a massage (learn how here!)—as could you, TBH.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
It's all fun and games... until it's not. You may find it hard to admit when you've accomplished great work or reward yourself for a job well done, but an exciting new person may appear in your life and show you how to throw caution to the wind and indulge your inner Sagittarian urge to roam and play. Just make sure they're not too reckless, especially on the 14th, when you could overspend or act on something without thinking it through.
Is this new acquaintance a true friend or potential romance? Let things play out instead of trying to force them. And make sure your pet agrees that this is a person you should be spending time with. Remember, animals are some of the best judges of character!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
While you're not typically fond of clutter, you may have accumulated some extra during quarantine and it's time to purge. (That torn-to-sheds bed of your pup’s has got to be replaced—check out new ones here.) November will give you the energy to clear your body, mind and spirit, and as you let go of what's no longer working for you, you may see how the universe can deliver incredible opportunities to replace what you’ve shed. Your confidence will also be off the chain now, and your earning potential soars. Never one who runs from hard work, you may decide to go after a promotion, new job or explore a cutting-edge idea you’ve been kicking around. You’ve got this, Capricorn!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Always fighting for the underdog, Aquarius, you find yourself in the middle of more than one debate about what you feel is right. Your rational thinking and vision for the future is something your friends will admire and appreciate now more than ever.
On the work front, you may find that your boss seems to be questioning everything you do. Be ready with answers, but try not to take it personally. Remember, our pets can potentially pick up on our energy, so keep an eye on your furry friend for any signs of stress. If you’re feeling it, they might be too. You may want to consider talking to your vet about calming supplements—we know you want what’s best for them!
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
There's plenty on your plate to keep you busy this month, Pisces. The beginning of November may bring a potential business partnership, so keep your eyes open. Do some investigating into unique ways to increase your income if you've been feeling frustrated about your finances or career trajectory. The tools you need to succeed are out there—you just may have been looking for them in the wrong direction.
Sharpen your mind with brain-boosting puzzles when you need a break from work and share your curiosity with your pet friends. Puzzle toys for dogs are great for challenging their minds, and we’re sure they’ll enjoy a treat for a job well done.
