Much like horoscopes, tarotscopes are a way to predict upcoming energy and how it can affect you. Whereas with the former, we look at the position of the planets in the sky to make predictions, tarotscopes are a divination tool based on the reading we see in the cards.

Now that it’s November, the weather is getting crisper and the days shorter. Some of you may find peace and reflection in the depths of autumn. Others will get antsy and need to get moving on a new adventure. But what’s the wisest course for you? Well, looking at the tarotscopes, many of the cards for zodiac signs are advocating for patience. And with Mercury retrograde in Scorpio until November 20th, there’s plenty of time for sitting tight and meditating on your choices. (Though that’s much easier said than done for some signs, isn’t it?)

What does November hold for you? Look to the tarot reading for your zodiac sign and find out.

Aries

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 2 of Swords

This month is about weighing your options carefully and finding the path of moderation between your heart and your mind. There is a vibe of indecision, of stalemate, and of waiting. This month is about focusing on serenity and peace—wait as long as you need to, and don’t make decisions before you reach this place of inner knowing. A lot of this month is about developing self-trust, so cultivate patience and remain still until you find it.

Taurus

Card: King of Pentacles

This month is all about you, Taurus. The King of Pentacles is your natal card, so it represents your highest energy. You have big plans for yourself, and you’re willing to take as long as necessary to get it—you’re in no rush whatsoever. What you want necessitates hard work, grounding, and discipline, and you’re not backing down from anything until you have what you desire. This is a month of mastery for you. Your energy is at its highest, and you’re building the future you want for yourself.

Gemini

Card: The Chariot (Reversed)

Hold up, Gemini. This month, take a minute and step back before recklessly rushing full-speed ahead. There is a vibe of impatience, wanting things done your way, and wanting to dominate, force, conquer, or rush ahead. But the tarotscopes are actually advising you to calm down and get your ego in check before rushing to make decisions. You could be driving your car full-speed (figuratively or not)—but do you even know what’s your final stop? Devise a plan before you rush right into a wall.

Cancer

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 5 of Pentacles (Reversed) + 9 of Swords (Reversed)

The tarot cards tell us that you’ve been having strong insecurities connected to the material and/or spiritual plane. You could have financial worries, or maybe you feel like no one can help you and you have to do everything on your own. Bottom line: You’ve been worried and going through a difficult time. You may not be completely done with these lessons, but you’re working through them and heading toward a resolution.

But note: As much as there are some difficulties in your life right now, a lot of it is also self-made by worrying excessively. Focus on your mental health as opposed to the problem at hand. That will do more for you than seeking solutions to whatever problem you believe you have.

Leo

Card: The Hermit

Stay home, Leo. Tarot is advising you to spend some time by yourself and withdraw temporarily from the world to ponder important questions and do some soul searching. Now is a good time to go to therapy, read books, meditate, and overall, focus on being a “hermit,” quite literally. Time to grow some inner wisdom and cut back on your social life.

Virgo

Card: The Fool (Reversed)

This could be a time of an inner new beginning. If you feel like things are not going the way you want them to, November could mark a time of complete change in your life—but on an inner level. Perhaps it’s time to let loose, let go of limiting beliefs, or change your perspective. In any case, you’re advised to embrace change and connect more with your youthful energy.

Libra

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: Knight of Wands (Reversed)

Are we feeling antsy, Libra? This month you’ll have a tendency to be adventurous and spontaneous, yes—but also impatient and reckless. You may feel that things aren’t moving as quickly as you’d want them to. Or you could be rushing into a romance or a project. But you’re doing these things before you have the time to actually question whether it’s the right move for you. Impatience + excitement = potential trouble. Try to take a few breaths and slow down before you jump into anything wild. In romance, too, remember to slow things down.

Scorpio

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: Ace of Cups

It’s a brand new beginning, Scorpio. You feel radiant and your cup is full. A fresh start in love is expected this month, and with it comes promises of nurturance and love for you. You’ll feel creative, fresh, young, and optimistic for the future. This month is definitely yours and you can expect the universe to support you in your desires and wishes. Sweet! Enjoy!

Sagittarius

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: Temperance

This is a very healing month for you, Sagittarius. You have a natural tendency to rush headfirst into things—and think after. This month, though, you’re more capable of considering things and choosing the moderate path before rushing into catastrophes. There is a strong potential for healing, balance, and wisdom this month. Always remember to ask yourself: What is the moderate path here? If you do, you’ll align yourself with your highest vibration and with your blessings.

Capricorn

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: Page of Wands (Reversed)

There can be a vibe of miscommunication this month, so be aware of how you communicate and how you’re being received. Perhaps you want to hear from someone but don’t. Or maybe you do hear from them, but you don’t hear what you were hoping for. By the same token, you might be the one miscommunicating or not showing enough curiosity to allow flowing communication. This month you could find yourself wanting to get to know others or discover new things, but finding yourself delayed or blocked in this endeavor. Focus on your communication and expressing yourself accurately.

Aquarius

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 8 of Wands (Reversed)

You’re a bit scattered this month—and that makes sense because we’re in Mercury retrograde. Avoid spending money on travel and trips that you can’t or shouldn’t afford. If you already plan to travel this month, expect delays.

You could be miscommunicating and finding it difficult to follow through or remain focused. Your mind is restless. Ground yourself as much as possible to avoid Mercury retrograde catastrophes.

Pisces

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 7 of Pentacles (Reversed)

This month, you’re feeling so done with investing your energy in the wrong places. Your advice? Be more pragmatic and less heart-driven when deciding what is worth your time, energy, and money. Do not invest in things that don’t have a strong return. November is also a good time to reflect on everything you have accomplished until now. Take a break and enjoy what you’ve accumulated and achieved.

Whether the cards advise you to hold back or press forward, we all have to stick together in this month’s Mercury retrograde. Let the tarot cards be your guide.
