Let’s give a big warm welcome to November!
It starts with an incredible week of action (read more about that here) and builds into a month, the likes of which I have not seen in a very long time. November is a month for momentum, decisions, and going after what you want.
It’s not enough to think about it this month. You really are required to DO. And in doing, you will be planting the seeds for the events, relationships and outcomes that you can continue to successfully grow in 2017 and beyond. This is your biggest month this year for launch, and for building foundations for future love, health and prosperity.
Cards for the Month:
I’ve chosen two cards for November for you: one from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck, and one from Colette Baron-Reid’s Wisdom of the Oracle. Please note I don’t use these cards in the conventional way, but rather as a stimulus for channelled information.
Here is what I have received from each card:
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” ~ Art Turock
This is it! November is the month for going after what you want. November is about taking the leap, even if you might not feel ready. It’s an energy of expansion and opportunity, of helpful people and magical synchronicities. November is full of the possibilities of things turning out better than you’d planned, or of coincidences leading you in new and fruitful directions.
November is a fabulous month for putting yourself and your ideas out into the world, or beginning the project that will ultimately do that (even if the launch itself will not be until some future date!). November is strongly linked to wealth and abundance energies, so seeds sown here will carry you through well into the future. But it’s not enough to just think about it – you need to act. You need to start, to commit, to put words to paper and effort into your idea or dream. No need to pressure yourself to launch before you are ready, but making that start is vital.
Expect the unexpected this month. The Universe will quickly support you as you make a commitment to yourself, your values, your dreams, your relationships. Be open about new ideas and about making huge decisions and changes quickly because you’re in flow and being led down a particular path to a particular outcome. You’ll begin to see glimpses of where you can go in life, and what comes next.
You’re being called to trust – to trust yourself, your decisions, and the inner and divine guidance that is directing you. It’s a wonderful month of expansion, and of connecting to a bigger picture. November is one of the best months I have seen in years for lightbulb moments, breakthroughs, million-dollar ideas and amazing new connections.
Hooray for that!
“Writing has nothing to do with meaning. It has to do with landsurveying and cartography, including the mapping of countries yet to come.”
~ Gilles Deleuze
The second card I’ve chosen is Message In a Bottle. Everything we need to know about navigating the energies of November is within this artful second card.
Momentum will carry us along this month if we get busy. Did I mention this is a month for bold plans and action?
We’ll need to have our telescope with us, so we can look into the future and decide on a destination. If we can’t decide on a destination how can we get there? Use this month to plan, to write those plans down, to commit to the plans and to refine the plans. Pop a copy into a bottle (or your journal, or your back-up disk, cloud or dropbox – print a copy out and stick it above your desk, or on the fridge or the toilet door!) to keep your plans safe so that you can continually refer to them as you progress along your journey. This kind of plan becomes a map!
It’s also important to honour your intuition in November, and you’ll find that this connection will be stronger than ever. Take time to connect often. A meditation need only last three minutes in order to gain benefit and to find that direct line to your Higher Self, your Soul Wisdom, God (or whatever you call that greater energy) and your Guides and Angels.
Stay connected to a support group – even if they are the characters of a book or an online community. Do not squander this precious month in the company of negative people, people who put you and your dreams down, and people who do not appreciate your efforts for them. This month, please, make your time about you and the dreams and projects important to you. Spend time with people you love and who uplift and support you.
Best crystals this month?
Turquoise and Hematite.
Turquoise connects us to our truth within. A profoundly spiritual stone that helps us gain insight and understanding.
Hematite strengthens our physical body, warding off fatigue and negative energy or emotion. It promotes grounded confidence in ourselves and our abilities.
Essential oils to support your journey?
Each of the following oils will work beautifully on their own for you this month, but they also make a delicious combination for diffusing. Sokli calls this her Amazing Grace Blend. The essential oils you will find helpful in November are Ylang Ylang, Grapefruit and Frankincense. Ylang Ylang calms and centres us, helping us to live from our hearts, Grapefruit provides optimism, energy and inspiration, and Frankincense allows us to be divinely connected and in spiritual flow. To diffuse add 2 or three drops of each oil to your room or personal diffuser. You can find the oils here.

Hi Nic! I always find myself looking forward to your monthly posts about what’s to come. I must say, they are pretty accurate and in sync with what’s going on for me right now. Thanks for sharing these. Hope you’re feeling better and that you are healing well. Sending you love from Holland. Take care.
I don’t know anymore what I want so I can’t get there. No goals, no strong desires, just plodding along with no expectations. Not good. Don’t even see a way to excavate any. I’ve had it all and not sure if there can be more. Tired seems to be my mantra, I’m looking at this post hopefully.
You’re never to old or too late
You have angels and spirit guides with you to help you … meditate and communicate with your spirit guides /angels
Just take sometime to interact with them ask them what more are you to give to the world and I know they will gladly answer you
The fact that you are still with us means your purpose is not fulfilled …
I send you much love
Thank you for your kind response, Miss C. I have done that on a daily basis in my morning meditation. I also know that if I’m still here, it’s for a reason. Each day I wonder how can I help in any small way and let the day unfold. So now, I assume there is no big thing for me, just small little things in the moment.
