November 2018 Tarotscope
Here we are in November where we should be getting ready to put this year to bed.
November could be a bit of a tricky month but I’m confident that we have got this! At the beginning of the month we find Venus in retrograde which could affect our relationships. When we finally put an end to this on the 16th we then get into our very favourite – a Mercury retrograde! I’ve never been one to take the Mercury retrograde too seriously. So much so I’m actually launching my brand new premium course this month – Learn to Read Tarot.
Being the 11th month could see us facing some decisions. The 11 would take us back to a 2 in numerology (1+1). If we are looking at the Major Arcana we would see The High Priestess (2) and Justice (11). The difference between this month and February (the other 2) is that we now have a lot of knowledge to draw on. We still need to rely on our intuition to guide us and take us toward our goal. Justice is saying that we also need to look at the facts. What has worked for us so far? Use your intuition but also look at the evidence to help you make that final push toward your 2018 goals.
Have a look and see what’s in store for you this month.

March 21 – April 19
3 of Swords
You could be facing some heartache this month. Don’t worry, that pain is temporary. Those clouds will part and the sun will come out again. You could find yourself facing a tough decision where you are having to choose between heart and head. Often we know what we need to do but that doesn’t make the pain any less. Being a 3 shows that we will learn from this experience and we are also reminded that this is close to the beginning of our journey. A setback doesn’t mean that this is the end of the story. Keep pushing on with the knowledge that you are doing the right thing and it will get better.
April 20 – May 20
I mentioned reviewing your achievements for the year as we prepare to draw the year to a close. We also need to be honest with ourselves and explore the shadow side. What would we have done differently? Are there areas that we are not happy with? We all have a shadow side and a big part of keeping it in check is facing it front on. The Devil can look very scary but once we face our fears they are rarely as bad as we think they are going to be. You could find yourself faced with temptation or being lured in a darker direction. Stay true to who you are and be honest with yourself.
May 21 – June 20
It’s time to take a breath and relax. It this society we are always on the go. This is not good for us and we need to be sure to allow time to rest and recuperate. Why not treat yourself to a nice massage or maybe you just deserve a day off to go to the beach or walk in the woods. I feel that being around nature or water would be very good for you. It’s important that you stay grounded this month. You have had a lot on your plate. This is your chance to take a time-out before pushing through towards the end of the year.
June 21 – July 22
2 of Cups
Love is definitely in the air. You had The Lovers last month and now you have the 2 of Cups. There is a true feeling of partnership and love. Look at how evenly balanced those characters are. I’m also drawn to the circle of the hands and cups. This is reminiscent of a wedding band, which symbolises eternity. There is a feeling here that 2 are better than 1. Be vulnerable and be prepared to share. The softness and strength combined is a fantastic combination. This card can represent a strengthening of relationships or partnerships both romantically and in your career or any other aspect of your life.
July 23 – August 22
7 of Wands (reversed)
Just be careful. You are trying to take on too much. Remember that we are heading into a Mercury retrograde and communication could be off. You are so good at staying on top of things and holding your own. You still have the higher ground but you need to keep pushing as conditions are about to worsen. Perhaps you could find yourself faced with more opposition than usual this month. This card is here to remind you that you have the skills and tools to stay in the winning position. Have faith in yourself and you will come out on top – we’ve got this fellow Leos!
August 23 – September 22
Queen of Pentacles
Here she is, the gorgeous Queen of Pentacles. She is so warm and maternal. She is also very smart and grounded. This is a great month to find the Queen of Pentacles in your life or indeed channel your inner Queen. It’s a really good month to give birth to new projects. You could experience lots of growth this month but the key is to stay grounded. There is no fuss or fluff with this Queen. It’s pure love and encouragement that brings the growth. Maybe you need to find a mentor at work or perhaps it’s time for you to work on the relationship with your mother or your children. Keep both feet on the ground and enjoy where this month takes you.
September 23 – October 22
5 of Cups
You need to take some time to appreciate the good things in your life. You may be feeling a bit down this month and find yourself focusing on the negative. Yes, things may not have gone to plan but you still have a lot of great stuff going on in your life. The character is covered by this dark cape and there is definitely a feeling of grief and sadness. In the darkest times, we need to look for the light. One of the best ways to do this is the practise gratitude. This would be a great month to spend 5 minutes each morning thinking about the things you are grateful for. Why not write it in a journal? I actually have a post about gratitude that might help you. Read the full post here.
October 23 – November 21
3 of Pentacles
You are getting your life on track! This is a sign of somebody who is serious about building their future. You are still early in the journey but doing all the right things to succeed. This month will see some growth for you and I feel that you are setting the foundations to build a bright, successful and happy future. It’s going to be one of those months where you get your head down and throw yourself into work but you are going to enjoy the process. This card can also show the importance of seeking help. Maybe you need to get advice from professionals to help set you off on the right path. If you have been planning a new venture or new move – this is the time to get serious and make it happen.
November 22 – December 21
Ace of Swords (reversed)
There is a bright new idea heading your way. You just have to be careful to allow the space to notice it! The Ace of Swords can show as a moment of inspiration and often a winning idea. When the card is reversed there is a danger that we could miss this moment. Maybe we are so busy that we are not allowing time for new ideas to come to mind. Meditation could be a great help for you this month. You also need to open yourself up to new ideas. We often get stuck on our way of doing things but be prepared to pivot and change course. We are constantly evolving and what worked in the past might not be the best course of action right now. Look for the signs, breathe and let the inspiration flow.
December 22 – January 19
This is a perfect card for November or December. It’s all about looking back and reflecting on your journey. What would you have done differently? What has been your biggest achievement? Why not write a review of 2018 and then you can write your goals for 2019. I would usually recommend this process in December but this card is telling you that there is no time like the present. Allow the time to truly reflect so you can grow from your experiences. This post will help you with your goal setting.
January 20 – February 18
8 of Cups (reversed)
You know that it’s time to move on but something is holding you back. I get it. Change can be tough and emotional. The thing is, you need to keep moving. There is a sense that we need to make a move forward and this will involve leaving some emotional baggage behind. An example can be moving overseas for work and leaving your friends and family. You know that it’s the right move for you but you are still finding it tough. The moon is there to remind us that our intuition will light the path and guide you in the right direction.
February 19 – March 20
The Lovers (reversed)
This card is quite similar to the Devil card. You could find yourself facing some tough choices this month and you might even find temptation in your path. The key here is to remember that you do have a choice. Are you going to choose the light or the shadow? There is actually no right or wrong but you need to be accountable for your actions. This is all about raising your levels of consciousness and mindfulness. Think about where each move you make this month could take you. There is an opportunity to strengthen or weaken your relationships. It’s in your hands.
Have a great month. xox
