A Tarot Reader Predicts What Each Zodiac Sign Should Expect This November

Aries

Your card: The Magician

You have the power this month, Aries—you’re the magician, intelligent and resourceful and maybe even a little otherworldly. You’re finally in the right place at the right time and are ready to make your move. You’re on the precipice of something great, but it’s only the beginning; lean into the potential, into the magic that comes with the spark of inspiration. Just remember that this isn’t the time to get caught up in distractions or excess—it’s time to really focus on what you want and allow this month’s energy to help you manifest it into existence. Only you have the power to shape your future, so don’t let this time pass you by.

Taurus

Your card: Three of Wands

November will be an exciting time for you, Taurus. The three of wands is all about expansion and adventure, about reaching beyond your comfort zone and finding the passion that comes with experiencing something new. Maybe this transformation will be something physical and you’ll get the chance to travel somewhere; maybe it’ll be mental and you’ll finally get to learn something you’ve always been interested in. Whatever it is, it’ll allow you to see the world differently and reexamine your own place in it—in a good way, of course. This is not the time to cling to familiarity but to allow yourself to dream big and let go of your need for control. Don’t be afraid—this is a very positive card, and whatever’s waiting for you will fill your heart to the brim with wonder and joy.

Gemini

Your card: Seven of Swords, reversed

Something’s wrong this month, Gemini, but to find out what it is, you’ll have to look within. In fact, things might externally seem perfect, but you can’t seem to shake the feeling that it’s all a ruse. We have a bad habit of projecting our own fears onto the rest of the world, don’t we? But that’s exactly what’s going on here. You may be suffering from imposter syndrome, or maybe it’s just that you feel like you don’t deserve the happiness you’ve found in your life. Or maybe it’s that you really aren’t happy with the life you’ve been living, but for some reason, you can’t fully admit that to yourself, so you keep going through the emotions and convincing yourself that it’s normal to feel this way. But this isn’t normal, Gemini, and the best thing you can do for yourself is to take a good look at yourself. It’s not always fun to hold a mirror up to your soul, but true reflection is the only thing that’s going to change the way you feel. Once you’ve taken the time to really understand what the problem is, you’ll be able to finally take the steps to healing yourself.

Cancer

Your card: Eight of Cups

You’re disappointed with something this month, Cancer, whether it’s a person or a job or a general situation. Whatever it is, it is likely something you expected to bring you a lot of emotional fulfillment, but in the end all it did was leave you feeling confused, closed off, and maybe even hurt. And at the end of the day, it might feel like your only option is to turn away and finally move on with your life once and for all. Just know that the pain you’re feeling now won’t last forever. Once you’ve allowed yourself to fully grieve that you’re letting go of, take the time to meditate on what went wrong and what you won’t allow to happen again, and then ask yourself what makes you happy. Just remember that by leaving this situation behind, you’re giving yourself the opportunity to explore those things that light your soul on fire—and remember, you will be happy again.

Leo

Your card: King of Swords, reversed

You’re a born leader, Leo—no one will argue with that—but this month might be a good time to take a good look at how you’re leading others. If you’re in a position of power, are you abusing it to get what you want? Are you refusing to listen to what others have to say? Are you acting irrationally or selfishly? This might be a sign that you’ve been giving your ego too much power, and you’ll find you bump into more problems than usual if you aren’t able to reign it in. Instead of demanding things be done your way, listen to other people’s suggestions—like, actually listen—and recognize that your way might not actually be the best way. Think about how your choices are affecting others and how they may be specifically benefitting you. You may be surprised at how many benefits come simply from learning to work well with others.

Virgo

Your card: Queen of Cups

This is a good month for you, Virgo, so long as you allow yourself to open up to the energies surrounding you. You are so used to letting logic guide you, and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, now is the time to lead with your heart. Look at the love that exists in your life and allow yourself to nurture it. Show compassion to those around you and give them the opportunity to show it in return. Take off the mask, let down your walls, and be authentically you. Allowing your reservations to dissolve into vulnerability can be uncomfortable, even terrifying, but you’ll never receive love and understanding if you constantly reject these gifts. Just know that now, you are safe—there is nothing to fear but so much to gain.

Libra

Your card: The Devil, reversed

The Devil can be a scary card to pull, but don’t freak out just yet, Libra. In this case, it means it’s time for you to confront your deepest, darkest self—and then let go. There are unhealthy attachments and limiting beliefs that are pulling you back from living your healthiest, happiest life, and now is the time to recognize exactly what they are and choose to no longer let them have a hold over you. This could be a toxic relationship, an unfulfilling job, festering guilt, or some sort of addiction; whatever it is, you now have the strength to cut the cords that have kept you tied down for so long. Moving on can be an exhausting, emotional, even painful choice, but the sense of relief will be palpable as you clear your life of everything that’s held you back and move forward into a future full of new opportunities.

Scorpio

Your card: The Hierophant, reversed

You’ve probably always felt a little different than everyone else, Scorpio; in some cases, you may have felt completely misunderstood. But there’s nothing wrong with you—the truth is, convention isn’t for everyone. What I’m saying is, it’s time for you to realize there’s no ‘right’ way to live life, and it’s possible your path doesn’t look like everyone else’s. I don’t need to tell you that, though—this month, it’ll be your greatest truth. It’s time to regain your power, rethink what your life should look like, and throw out everything you were told you needed to be. Ask yourself what you want your life to look like and give actual consideration to whether or not that’s conceivable for you. Don’t shy away from your eccentricities or quirks, because nothing is too crazy. We need the free thinkers and the innovators in society—they help us to grow, to invent, to question outdated beliefs and to usher in new ones—so even if your choices make you feel like an outsider, remember that you are valued.

Sagittarius

Your card: Five of Pentacles

I’m not going to lie to you, Sagittarius: This month might be a little tough for you. This might mean that, in a very real way, you’ll have trouble financially and may struggle to make ends meet, but it could also indicate that you feel lonely, isolated, and abandoned. Let me clarify: You feel this way, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you are. Are you avoiding your people for some reason? Or is it possible that you’re upset that they haven’t taken the initiative to reach out first? Or are you so busy missing someone who isn’t currently part of your life that you’ve neglected everyone else who loves you? Whatever it may be, it’s time for you to reach out and make the connections. Call up old friends you haven’t talked to in a while. Start a conversation with the person you always see at your bus stop. Invest in a hobby that would allow you to have a built-in community. Know that, no matter what you’re going through, you are never alone.

Capricorn

Your card: Knight of Wands, reversed

Things might feel a bit off for you, Capricorn, even if you can’t fully grasp why. You’re restless, and if you don’t have somewhere productive to channel your energy, you may end up feeling frustrated and tense. It doesn’t help that some days, everything feels like it’s going wrong—there are delays, small errors in your work, misunderstandings, and slip ups that you can’t seem to contain. Just remember that these things are all a normal part of life, and as annoying and taxing as they can be, it’s not the end of the world. Just make sure you aren’t so edgy that you start making impulsive decisions or lashing out at others. Instead, slow down and take a step back. When it all feels too much, try different self-care methods to calm yourself down or take a mental health day. Find healthy, fun, and creative ways to channel your pent up energy, and always remember that you’re allowed to take a break. 

Aquarius

Your card: Six of Wands, reversed

Your confidence may be waning in November, Aquarius. You’ve worked hard, but somehow it never seems to be enough. You might feel looked over, underappreciated, or left behind; you may even start to doubt your own worth. Instead of getting caught up in these awful feelings, make an effort to remind yourself of all the things in your life worth celebrating, no matter how small they are. Even if they may not have given you the recognition you were hoping for, there’s still value in personal success. This is a great time to remember that external validation means little if you haven’t taken the time to find the internal validation you need. Right now is about learning to be proud of yourself, so pat yourself on the back and treat yourself for every milestone you hit, even if no one else is paying attention.

Pisces

Your card: Queen of Pentacles  

You’re such a dreamy sign, Pisces, but November will find you planted firmly in reality. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just means you’re being particularly practical this month. You’ll be busy nurturing your loved ones and providing for your family, however that looks for you—maybe you’ll be working hard to help pay the family bills or you’ll be cooking meals for someone who needs it the most. Whatever it is, you’re doing it out of love and compassion, and the warmth you offer others will often be returned to you just as readily. But while you’re busy creating support systems and safety nets for your loved ones, don’t forget to take care of yourself too—if you put yourself on the back burner for too long, you may burn out completely, so be sure to focus that nurturing energy inward, too.
