What changes are you willing to make in order to push yourself to greater heights?
As with all New Moons, how this energy may exactly resonate with you is going to depend. Especially in prodding, deep Scorpio, this New Moon may resonate with parts of our hearts and psyche in deeply personal, unpredictable ways.
We advise approaching this week with a loose plan and a very open mind — but before you settle on any major recommendations, let’s check in with what the Tarot recommends too.
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for November 13 – 19, 2023
8 of Swords (Reversed)
Aries may be using the energy of this New Moon to release everything that does not serve them.
Sometimes, we want to make big changes and add new things to our lives but seemingly lack the space to do so. Or maybe we try to push forward but find ourselves completely held back by some unknown force.
That’s what the 8 of Swords often feels like — uncomfortable restrictions and restraints.
However, the reversal of this card indicates that you’re aware of these things and are taking the necessary steps to release those chains!
Queen of Pentacles (Reversed)
You don’t have to have it all together yet, Taurus.
The energy of this New Moon and the week ahead is looking rocky, but not especially because of some drastic event or difficult hurdle. Instead, the difficulties you may face are more internal with the Queen of Pentacles reversed.
This week, you’re wrestling with your own practical senses and your personal abundance. You may question your plans and what you currently possess, and thus also doubt your capabilities in cultivating a stable, secure lifestyle.
These insecurities and thoughts come to the forefront not to taunt you but to ask you to genuinely work through them so that you can come out on the other side stronger (and more confident).
5 of Wands
The truth is that in life, there are sometimes not many profound messages or reasons that we can glean from our uncomfortable experiences and mistakes. Not everything is a cosmic lesson that we can comprehend fully, as we aren’t always meant to “get” every single thing.
Sometimes a miscommunication is just a miscommunication, and it’s important to roll with the punches and release things as they come.
This week, some social conflict, chaos, and miscommunications are likely, but that doesn’t mean you need to dwell on them.
7 of Cups
Cancer, do you know what your heart truly wants?
With the 7 of Cups on the table, you may have many options at your disposal, whether they are romantic choices, career opportunities, or all of the above.
Your intuition is cloudy at this moment. You may have pondered all the possibilities already (and gone a bit too far in that thinking process, now looping back around to square one).
Sometimes, the “right choice” is just making one and trusting yourself to make it through alright on the other side.
Page of Cups (Reversed)
Leo, you may feel a bit creatively burnt out right now.
Intuitively, emotionally, and creatively, the Page of Cups reversed shows you having an empty tank.
Although you may desperately want to connect with this side of yourself (especially for a New Moon), the reversal of this card prompts you to rest and take a few steps back.
A piece of advice to keep with you this week: the best ideas may find you once you loosen the reigns on your internal compass and creative senses.
The Devil (Reversed)
Virgo, it’s time to go deep within… and see what lies in the darkness.
The Devil reversed shows Virgos unpacking deeper wounds, shadowy memories, and uncomfortable habits and realities.
You may have been needing to examine some truths like these for some time, but the New Moon is knocking on your door and making you walk through to the other side.
Honesty and self-reflection are the first real steps to making progress and actually letting go, so kudos to you for doing the harder work this week.
Libra, change may actually be a good thing… if you let it in.
Although Death is here to offer up personal transformations (on theme for the New Moon in Scorpio), the reversal of this card indicates that you may be resistant to actually following through.
Change is a tricky, challenging thing — you may want to make grand strides to a different future or shift course entirely, but that can involve risky decisions and letting go of the familiar.
However, you’re going to have to trust that you’ll be alright when you make that stride. Work through those feelings of discomfort so that you can explore a path that is more true and right for you, Libra.
King of Wands (Reversed)
Scorpio may feel antsy, uncomfortable, and on edge this week.
The King of Wands usually is a beacon of light, inspiration, and leadership, but the reversal of this card can push those ambitions to an uncomfortable degree.
You may have a lot that you want to do but not enough time to do it or a lot of dreams and ambitions but not enough resources to execute them. This can shake up your self-confidence and demand that you look inward… instead of outward, where you may be tempted to focus your attention.
You’ll need to be able to go with the flow and release some control here if you want to succeed Scorpio.
Knight of Wands
This week, you take hold of that beginning in the form of the Knight of Wands, characterizing more of an adventurous spirit and a go-getter mentality.
Rather than bask around in the infinite possibilities that may exist, you’re now focused on seizing the moment and actually putting yourself out there, taking risks where necessary and possible.
In other words, Sagittarius will be making their own possibilities this week! No more waiting around.
Queen of Wands (Reversed)
Capricorn, you can’t always do it all alone.
The Queen of Wands is usually an entrepreneurial, independent go-getter who doesn’t exactly need the advice or expertise of others. Although the risky, passionate approach isn’t always very Capricorn-like, there are definitely still qualities about this card that you can easily resonate with.
However, right now, you may find that your connection to this side of yourself is indeed more strained and conflicting than you may like it to be.
If you can’t handle the heat, it may not be a bad idea to pass the torch to someone else. (There’s no shame in needing help, Capricorn).
Page of Wands
Aquarius is in a creative, passionate groove this week.
This New Moon energy may just inspire you to new, exciting heights as the Page of Wands opens you up to new ideas and fresh sources of inspiration.
For those wishing to travel or make new connections, this card is a great omen that you’re on your way to putting forward the energy that is just right for that.
Of course, you will still have to seize those opportunities yourself, but they’re also more likely to be on the table right now!
The Lovers (Reversed)
Pisces, making heart-to-heart connections is something you want… but it isn’t always easy.
The Lovers reversed notes that this week may have you unpacking wounds surrounding your relationship choices and past and current connections.
You may be using this week as a period of self-reflection and really contemplating that your needs are in your relationships with others (and perhaps with yourself too).
Although it may not always be easy to examine something so close to your heart, emotionally attuned Pisces is definitely a zodiac sign that is capable of the task.
