There is a lot to celebrate in November. This is a list of pretty much everything that goes on during the eleventh month of the year. Many of these dates change from year to year. The days that change are marked with this » symbol.
November Lore and General Info
- Sept 7 thru Dec 10: Taurids Meteor Shower
- Oct 2 thru Nov 7: Orionids Meteor Shower
- Nov 4 » New Moon
- Nov 6 thru Nov 30: Leonids Meteor Shower
- Nov 19 » Full Moon – Mourning Moon, Snow Moon, Partial lunar eclipse
Depending on which astrological system you adhere to, these are the signs that show up in November of 2021. Be aware that some of these dates will vary from year to year. Unlike the Sun signs which might just shift by 1 or 2 days, the dates of the various Moon signs will vary widely from year to year. The same holds true for the Chinese Zodiac. The Celtic Tree Signs are based on an arbitrary system and stay the same from year to year.
The November Sun begins in Scorpio and finishes up in Sagittarius:
The moon cycles through the signs as follows:
- Oct 30 – Nov 1 » Moon in Virgo
- Nov 1 – Nov 4 » Moon in Libra
- Nov 4 – Nov 6 » Moon in Scorpio
- Nov 6 – Nov 8 » Moon in Sagittarius
- Nov 8 – Nov 10 » Moon in Capricorn
- Nov 10 – Nov 12 » Moon in Aquarius
- Nov 12 – Nov 14 » Moon in Pisces
- Nov 14 – Nov 17 » Moon in Aries
- Nov 17 – Nov 19 » Moon in Taurus
- Nov 19 – Nov 22 » Moon in Gemini
- Nov 22 – Nov 24 » Moon in Cancer
- Nov 24 – Nov 27 » Moon in Leo
- Nov 27 – Nov 29 » Moon in Virgo
- Nov 29 – Dec 1 » Moon in Libra
You will notice that the Moon might begin the day in one sign and by the end of the day may have moved into another sign, so timing matters if you are wanting to be precise.
The Celtic Tree Signs in November:
- Oct 28 – Nov 24: Month of the Reed
- Nov 25 – Dec 22: Month of the Elder Tree
The Alternative Celtic Zodiac is as follows:
- Poplar: Nov 1 – Nov 10
- Chestnut: Nov 11 – Nov 20
- Ash: Nov 21 – Nov 30
The Chinese Calendar and Zodiac
We are currently in the year of the Ox (sometimes referred to as the Cow). Each Month is also assigned a specific animal. Here’s what shows up in November 2021.
- Dog » Oct 8 – Nov 6 (Chinese Zodiac – Stem Branch Calendar)
- Dog » Oct 6 – Nov 4 (Lunar Calendar – 9th Lunar Month)
- Pig » Nov 7 – Dec 6 (Chinese Zodiac – Stem Branch Calendar)
- Pig » Nov 5 – Dec 3 (Lunar Calendar – 10th Lunar Month)
Note: The traditional Chinese Astrology birth chart is built by the Chinese Stem Branch Calendar, not the Chinese Lunar Calendar, which I think is really confusing. Because of a difference in time zones, the lunar months will have a different pattern between China and the USA.
Lucky and Unlucky Days
You might want to plan moving, traveling, major purchases, court dates, and weddings around these dates, avoiding the unlucky days and utilizing the lucky ones.
- These are the lucky days in November:
5, 14 and 20.
- These are the unlucky days in November:

The fifth bears stings of deadly pain,
