November 2023, according to the Chinese calendar, is Gui and Hai—both corresponding to the Water element. Gui Hai month is characterized by heightened emotional sensitivity, intuitive depth, and a focus on empathy and creativity. This month, therefore, is generally favorable for activities that involve emotional expression, creative exploration, spiritual development, and nurturing interactions.
Financially, markets may be whipsawed by instability of world events. Despite stronger-than-expected GDP numbers in the third quarter, there are headwinds as investors’ digest regional conflicts with an emotional flight to the safety of the US treasury and gold leaving equity markets under water—as November is a double Water month. This is a continuation of the financial trends from the prior month of tightening financial conditions due to record high-interest rates, lower lending, consumer pull back, and general pessimism of the Water versus the optimism of the Fire element that is required to spark the market once again.
Individually, November is a favorable month for Wood, Metal, and Water Element people, neutral for Earth Element, and challenging for Fire people. The vulnerable areas of health are kidneys and adrenal glands, reproductive and cardiovascular systems, and circulation. If you don’t yet know your element, take a short quiz to find out. Read on for your personalized horoscope here.
Your Fire Element may find it challenging to thrive in a double Water month because Water tends to counteract Fire’s natural tendencies. This month may require a more cautious and deliberate approach, emphasizing emotional depth and understanding over passionate action.
Fire Element individuals are associated with the heart in Chinese medicine. Because your nature is a tendency to be consumed by your passions, especially given the emotional sensitivity of a Water month, you may experience more anxiety, stress, palpitations, shortness of breath, and chest pains.
Tip: Be sure to ask for an EKG during your annual physical exam, and if your symptoms persist beyond 3 days, go to urgent care or the ER.
