The first week of November has arrived, which means we’re at the point of the year where there’s not much left of 2022, and yet there’s just enough time to finish strong.
Luckily, we’ll be having a First Quarter Moon in Aquarius on the 1st of the month. So if you were mourning the loss of October this week, you’ll have some supporting energy to help you get into the new groove of November almost immediately.
This Moon event will help us look ahead boldly and consider how we fit into the collective — ringing in Aquarian themes of progressing forward and considering others.
With that in mind, it’s also a good idea to check up with the Tarot to see how we can best utilize this period of time for ourselves. What does the Universe have in store for you this week?
Your Sign’s Weekly Tarotscope for October 31 – November 6, 2022
10 of Swords
Aries has been teetering on the edge of burnout for a while, and this week is where things come to a head.
The 10 of Swords puts you on the ground — literally. This is a week where you might find yourself too tired to keep going or completely ready to put some of your responsibilities and plans to rest.
This period of endings is not surprising. However, the lack of surprise won’t make it sting any less. Sometimes it hurts to give up on a goal or recognize that a dream isn’t going anywhere, even if you know it’ll save you time and heartbreak in the long run.
Hold space for those feelings, and know that your bold, brave ram self can carry on through even this.
Queen of Wands
Of course, themes of confidence and beauty aren’t all that unfamiliar to the sensual bull. There’s always been a bit of love for abundant, beautiful, and aesthetically-pleasing experiences within you.
This week is just about channeling all of that and a bit more. With the Queen of Wands on the table, you’re called to speak up, stand out, and let yourself shine a bit more this week than you usually might be inclined to.
Wheel of Fortune (Reversed)
Gemini, it may feel like your Universe is a bit topsy-turvy right now.
With the Wheel of Fortune upside-down, it can be challenging to trust not only the forces that may be but also yourself. It’s tempting to entertain “what if’s” and question whether or not you’re on the right track.
However, this line of thinking will get you nowhere quickly. This strange feeling is okay to experience but not worth actually entertaining for too long.
A feeling of disconnection may be on the horizon right now, but it’s always worth taking a deep breath, re-centering, and reconnecting with the connection that matters most — the one with your very own intuition.
7 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Cancer was hard at work last week, but you may feel yourself lagging behind for this one.
Although the hardworking energy of the 8 of Pentacles pointed in your favor just the week before, the tables have turned with the 7 of Pentacles on the table now — moving one step back and upside-down.
This isn’t the end of the world, but it does hint at minor setbacks and a need to rethink what you were just doing. You may be doing too much too quickly or expecting results at a pace that isn’t reasonable for you to keep up with.
9 of Wands (Reversed)
It’s one thing to pause and reflect, but it’s another to stop in your tracks, Leo.
The 9 of Wands reversed indicates that you may be overthinking your steps right now.
While it makes sense to be cautious when you care deeply about the outcomes of your current goals and path, right now, being overly cautious is more likely to be what causes error.
Let yourself contemplate and think where it’s necessary, but this week is all about knowing where to draw that line.
6 of Pentacles
Virgo is playing the role of generous patron this week — but what else is new?
You’re a sign of service in many ways, and this week you’re likely doling out your time, space, and expertise to those who seem to need it the most. The 6 of Pentacles congratulates you for your generosity but hints that it’s important that you’re not expecting anything in return.
Likely, you won’t be getting your time and resources back anytime soon, so know that what you give out during this time should be coming from the heart and not because you think it’s a sound investment with a high return.
4 of Swords (Reversed)
It’s been time for some serious R&R since… forever ago, Libra.
The 4 of Swords is always your sign that it’s time to put everything to rest — your mind, body, and spirit. This is a kind of deep sleep, a moment in time where you need full recuperation.
Reversed, you may think you’re ready to jump into action, but it’s more likely you’re still suffering some aches that can seem deceptively innocent.
Rest assured (no pun intended) that you still need some “me time.”
2 of Swords
Scorpio is standing at the cusp of a decision, and everything seems both right and wrong.
The 2 of Swords clouds up your decision-making process, making you easily question whether or not you know right from wrong or left from right. Should you go this way, that way… or maybe the answer is somewhere you haven’t looked yet?
The trick is that there may not actually be a “right” or “wrong” answer — but you do need to trust yourself to pick one, regardless of the technicalities. Right now, it’s better to make a decision than none at all.
4 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Sagittarius, there’s no need to hang on tight to your resources right now.
The 4 of Pentacles shows you clutching onto what you have — perhaps your finances, your time, or other things in your life that you see as finite or limited.
Reversed, you probably can actually afford to let some of that go and loosen the purse strings. While you don’t have to splurge on everything, it’s okay to loosen up with what you’re sharing and using.
The Universe isn’t out to get you, and you won’t be punished for a bit of self-care and indulgence.
The Hanged Man
Capricorn is hanging in a spot of wisdom and expertise right now — even more than usual!
The Hanged Man indicates that you’ve put yourself in a bit of a moment of pause. Now is a time of contemplation and reflection, and you’re invested in seeing that bigger picture.
This week is ideal for planning, connecting with intuition, and answering important questions. It’s also an excellent time for solo time, but the steady goat tends to be great at cultivating that anyway!
7 of Swords
Aquarius, something fishy is in the water — so don’t bite the bait.
The 7 of Swords indicates that you’re currently surrounded by what looks like potential deception and half-in, half-out behavior. This means people breaking commitments, telling half-truths, or engaging even in a bit of mischief or gossip.
If you find yourself second-guessing someone’s intentions or your intuition is sounding red alarms, it’s time to pause, reflect, and hold off on any major commitments, conversations, or promises for now.
King of Cups (Reversed)
Pisces, you were in your feelings last week (in a good way), but this week brings waves of overwhelming emotions instead.
The King of Cups reversed hints that some of you may have gone a little overboard with the contemplation of emotion and intuitive feeling. It’s all well and good to explore your soul’s depths, but you need to come back to the surface every now and then too.
This week you’re urged not to get too far detached from reality — for you, it’s easy to swim in the vast sea of your unconscious and emotional world, but it’s not always where you’re meant to build a home.
First Week, First Quarter Moon, & First Intentions
There are plenty of important “firsts” this week, from the First Quarter Moon to the first week of November.
This means it’s also a good time to set “first” intentions or intentions that are new and aligned with where you’re currently at, even if your slate isn’t exactly clear and there’s still old work and situations to sift through.
This isn’t about starting anew completely, but just leaning into the energy of the moment — recognizing that at any point, a first anything could emerge into your life and change things for the better.
This week, open yourself up to the unexpected even as you work through the energy of the current moment, and remember that even with the future foretold, anything is possible!
