Just when you thought 2023 might come to a quiet close, November offers a final push for those seeking change and new, open doors.
Let’s see — Saturn finally ends its retrograde this month on the 4th, a New Moon in Scorpio leaves room for personal transformation and change on the 13th, and whimsical, wild Sagittarius season is off to the races starting on the 22nd.
You’re going to want to ride out this energy of transformation and productive innovation rather than fight the flow of change itself. But, of course, that’s just the overarching umbrella over the whole collective. What about what’s headed your way personally?
Your November 2023 Tarot Readings
The Star & 3 of Pentacles
Aries has a healing, productive month ahead (if they’re willing to put in the work).
The Star is an umbrella of positive, rejuvenating energy over your life. It offers healing and inspiration where there may have even been a drought of these things previously.
Coupled with the 3 of Pentacles, the world is on your side as well, offering opportunities to make tangible progress (especially in the workplace and career) along the way. This may be a great month for finances and for those seeking promotions or career advancements.
Of course, you must be willing to put yourself out there and put in the work in order to truly seize this energy.
Taurus, it’ll be important to find rest in the heat of the chaos.
With The Tower on the table, it’s always time for the Universe to shake things up. Old patterns, constructs, and systems need to fall to the wayside, and a bit of discomfort and chaos will likely take their place before a peaceful, clean slate arrives.
As such, the 4 of Swords invites you to practice consistent rest and self-care this month. Do not rush to find solutions or take grand gestures.
Basically, allow The Tower to make its moves first before doing anything drastic.
Judgement (Reversed) & 9 of Swords
Gemini is feeling particularly scattered this month.
Judgement reversed always feels like a cloud of confused fog settling over the mind and intuition. Especially next to the 9 of Swords, anxieties, and doubts are taking the lead (while logic and clarity are seemingly nowhere to be found).
In case it’s not obvious, this month is not one for making rash decisions or jumping to conclusions.
But if you’re willing to sit with the unknowns and many questions (without seeking the answers), sifting through all this fog now may help you find the light later.
The Hierophant (Reversed) & 6 of Wands (Reversed)
Cancer is feeling like a black sheep this month.
The Hierophant reversed spotlights an uncomfortable relationship with tradition, order, and authority figures. Plus, the 6 of Wands reversed adds the complication of not feeling seen or recognized for your efforts.
This month, you may have difficulty being seen for who you are, especially professionally. Others aren’t recognizing your uniqueness and expect you to fall in line with what’s predictable instead.
However, you can’t let these feelings of isolation dim your light, and you can’t respond by fighting fire with fire. All you can do is shine brightly on your own… whether or not others want to see it.
The Sun (Reversed) & Ace of Pentacles
Leo, a few missteps and setbacks shouldn’t stop you from blossoming.
The Ace of Pentacles reversed forecasts trouble in planting new seeds for success, especially when it comes to the home, finances, and career. It may feel like you can’t do anything right or like the Universe is conspiring against you.
With The Sun reversed, you might feel like this is a reflection of something wrong with you. These experiences might be having a negative impact on your sense of self and identity.
However, you can’t allow a few external problems (some entirely outside of your control) to be an indication that something is wrong internally. Take a few deep breaths and practice self-forgiveness and compassion frequently this month, Leo.
The Magician (Reversed) & 3 of Swords (Reversed)
Virgo is feeling a bit burnt out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be productive in other ways.
With The Magician reversed, your imagination tank is running on empty. New ideas are sparse; even when they do come, you may feel unmotivated to pursue anything new.
But the 3 of Swords reversed hints that you may be able to work with what you already have. Instead of initiating new things, this may be a month for healing past wounds and working through previous disappointments.
In a way, it may feel like you’re creating something new in the process unexpectedly, too (like a new version of yourself, now more prepared to take on grand visions and ventures).
Strength & 10 of Pentacles
Libra, it’s time to take advantage of the strengths you were gifted and go after what you really want.
The 10 of Pentacles is generally a positive omen for long-term goals surrounding your stability and the legacy and work you’d like to leave behind on this Earth.
But Strength is the real signal that not only is this energy on the table in general, but you also have the personal power to pursue all of it. You must have faith that you’re strong, capable, and skilled enough to achieve your desired goals.
You don’t need any other fancy tools or resources. So if you can find that faith… you can also find that success.
The High Priestess & 6 of Swords
Scorpio is utilizing their intuition to make grand leaps of faith this month.
The 6 of Swords is the definition of a leap of faith, indicating that this month is about breaking away from the familiar (and, more importantly, the stagnant) energy in your life, even if it means landing in a whole lot of uncertainty afterward.
However, The High Priestess notes that these choices are coming from an intuitive place deep within. You need to trust that inner voice enough to make those important decisions.
Saying goodbye is never easy, but saying hello to new opportunities on the other side always feels sweet.
The Devil (Reversed) & 3 of Wands
Sagittarius, this is what we like to call a “breakthrough month.”
The Devil reversed shows you putting behind the past and letting go of old baggage, simultaneously making way for new opportunities and people. Whatever it takes, you’re determined to break outside of old patterns of behavior that may have been holding you back.
The reason is likely the 3 of Wands, an optimistic and promising energy entering your life that signals potential in entrepreneurial ventures, travel, and meeting new people.
You know that in order to accept that uplifting energy, you may need to make room by letting some things go. And that’s exactly what this month is all about.
Justice (Reversed) & 8 of Wands (Reversed)
Capricorn, slow down. This month needs to be about finding your balance.
Justice reversed spotlights imbalances and insecurities — you may be questioning your own gift of perception and also suddenly feeling like you’re juggling too much all at once.
The 8 of Wands reversed hints that your impulse may be to just “power through.” But hasty action is not the solution here. As uncomfortable as inaction may feel, you must let yourself sit in stillness, reflect, and recalibrate before taking any major steps.
It’s better not to walk at all than to walk backward or stumble on your own toes.
The Empress (Reversed) & 5 of Cups
Aquarius, just because you may not have everything you’re seeking right now doesn’t mean that it can never come your way.
With The Empress reversed and the 5 of Cups, you may feel discouraged about your abilities to manifest the life of your dreams. This month, it seems easy to dwell on everything you’re missing instead of everything that you could still have.
Although not everything is picture perfect, it’s important to view “gaps” in your life (whether in love and relationships or finances) as areas of opportunity — clean slates still open for you to fill.
Remember: it’s all perspective and how you choose to view it.
Death (Reversed) & Page of Cups
Pisces is slowly but surely inching their way toward change and transformation.
Although Death reversed hints that you may be dragging your feet a little bit when it comes to allowing more transformation in your life (and no judgment — change is scary!), the Page of Cups advises that creativity and the arts may help ease the transition.
As you work to create a more authentic version of yourself, seek creative outlets that help you process the changes you’d like to make and put your voice out there into the world gradually.
Start by honestly asking yourself: who do you truly want to become?
