7 PERSONAL YEAR
9 Personal Month
November is an intriguing month for you. It’s as though you’ll be able to take a step back and look deeply into the mirror and make healthy, detached decisions about your life. Or alternately, you can feel victimized and sad. You can convince yourself to cling onto what’s no longer working for you. It’s time to pull together the different strands that you’ve been working with throughout the year.

This month is guided by the energy of the number 9—all about completions, letting go, and transitions. You’ll feel heightened intuition right now and so be grounded and ready to listen to the subtleties. Know that your intuitive voice doesn’t speak with as much volume as the practical/brain/earthly voice. As Steven Spielberg says: “Your intuition doesn’t shout, it whispers.” So quiet down and listen. A phase of your inner growth that you’ve been working with all year will culminate during the week of November 7th.
As Steven Spielberg says: “Your intuition doesn’t shout, it whispers.”
On or about November 16th, some spiritual insights that you’ve been working on may finally gel for you and you’ll receive an “Ah-ha!” moment. Expect terminations of some important matters or significant relationships sometime between November 18th and 27th. This has been a rather long and perhaps arduous year for you overall. You’re being offered opportunities to put some of the ponderings and issues of the year to bed and prepare yourself to “snap out of it” and come back to terra firma with both feet firmly planted on the ground.
Next year is the beginning of what I call a three-year “push” time—it’s all about action, achievement, empowerment, releasing the old to make room for the new, and then starting a new cycle. You might feel disconcertingly emotional this month. Allow it. Invite it. Be it. Create your own private space to work with these deep emotional moments and transitions. It’s vital and important that you face them, embrace them, move through them, and express them in a healthy way.
The energy of November isn’t supportive of taking flight. It’s supportive of wrapping up loose ends, saying good-byes, and letting go of what needs to go.
Understand that November still isn’t the time to start anything new. I know, I know. You’re itching to move forward and yet the timing isn’t right yet. This isn’t to say that you can be involved in life and doing things. What it does mean is that the energy of November isn’t supportive of taking flight. It’s supportive of wrapping up loose ends, saying good-byes, and letting go of what needs to go. You’re not quite ready to launch.
Of course some endings can come out of left field and be out of your control. Allow yourself the space to work with these situations fully and completely. Denial is not your friend. Whenever I mention endings, people cringe. I hope that you aren’t feeling that way. Know that when something—perhaps an ongoing endeavor or relationship—doesn’t exactly work out right now, it’s always for your higher and greater good. Deep down you know this, yet going through the transition is still difficult.
Although you may have wanted to avoid these endings, you may find that they give you considerably more freedom than you would have ever expected. Your key for November? Be sensitive, understanding, and compassionate—with others and, more specifically—with yourself. You’ll feel compelled to take inventory of the things you have gratitude for in your life. Focus on some selfless giving in November and you’ll feel filled up.
