This is the 11th month during an 11 year (2+0+1+8=11). What a powerful time! As has been mentioned before, this 11 year is a portal year, when we are asked to step forward into transitions. And we are certainly asked to step up and move forward this month!
This is also a time when the Sun will largely be in Scorpio – the sign of rebirth, transformation, and going deep within. And we are asked to bring out what has been stirring inside of us.
Here is a Tarot and oracle card reading for the month, to give us insights on the energies and how to best navigate them in the weeks ahead…
Tarot Reading for November 2018
Princess of Cups, Knight of Swords, Six of Swords: Express Yourself
The first message for November is to focus on expressing yourself, your truth, showing who you are, and what is in your heart, to the world and others around you. If you have not been amply expressing yourself in any of these aspects, you are now asked to come forward. Working with the throat chakra, your energy center of communication, may be helpful at this time.
You may also experience that something inside of you calls to be birthed – a creative work or starting anew with a change in your life to a more harmonious situation. Some will also be called to go on a journey and travel.
Judgment, Wheel of Fortune, Knight of Wands: Get Moving
Jupiter, the planet of growth, expansion, wisdom, higher learning, travel and wealth is highlighted this month. The Wheel of Fortune is associated with this planet, and interestingly Jupiter will be in fiery Sagittarius – the sign which it rules, from November 9th until December 3rd, 2019.
There is an energy of fullness and fortune in the air this month – this is Jupiter! And it is now time to make a change; to move on and level up.
Similarly to the tarot card messages above, there is an indication here of a possible move, change of job/work or travels. Now may be the time to start planning or going on a trip.
You know inside what’s been holding you back from rising up; what changes and/or moves you need to make. So go ahead and do them now. This may call for some courage and risk-taking. The fire element is highlighted this month, so you could invite this energy into your life to encourage this movement.
From “The Goddess Oracle” deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky
“I sing a song of love
From the stones of my body
from the high peaks of my mountains
from the hot sands of my deserts
I caress you with green leaves
I bathe you in greenery
and feed you from my breast
I soothe you with sparkling waters
refresh you in my oceans
My song of love for you
is my body
there to feed you
Learn my song
and it will heal you
sing my song and it will whole you
dance with me and you will be holy”
Pachamama, our goddess guide for the month, is regarded by the indigenous people of the Andes as Mother Earth herself. She is also a dragon goddess, carrying vital life force energy.
Along with fire, the element earth is highlighted this month. We are advised to connect with nature and earth energy for her healing and vitality. The element Earth has been significant for this year 2018, and in November this theme continues to be pronounced.
This month, be sure to take some time to go out and connect with nature. Let her nurture you at this time. You may also nourish yourself with wholesome foods from the Earth and work with some grounding crystals this month such as hematite and garnet, but being outdoors is the best way to connect.
Ask Archangel Raphael for Help
Archangel Raphael, the healer angel, also made an appearance for this month’s reading. Raphael is usually seen emitting the color emerald green, and helps with healing on all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual.
If you’d like, you could ask Archangel Raphael to help you to heal in any way you need to. Walking in nature, among greenery, will also help you to tap into Archangel Raphael’s healing and light.
This angel is also known as a protector for travelers, so you could also ask Raphael to guard and keep you safe if you are traveling.
Thank you for reading, and have a blessed month!
