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.

Metal can coexist well with the Water energy of November, as it values structure and organization. This period is suitable for planning, setting long-term goals, and focusing on personal development, provided it doesn't become overly rigid.
Metal individuals are associated with the lungs, which play a crucial role in the immune system. To maintain good physical health, pay attention to your respiratory health. You may be particularly vulnerable to colds, flu, breathing issues, allergies, sinus conditions, fatigue, and skin problems.
Tip: Avoid exposure to pollutants and irritants, particularly mold spores, as they can lodge in your lungs and cause chronic inflammation. Practice deep breathing exercises daily, like six healing sounds that expand the diaphragm and the lungs, and use sound frequency to open and unblock your energy meridians. Avoid dairy, sugar, gluten, and mucus-inducing foods and opt for cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower with sulforaphane that reduces inflammation and inhibits, or take DIM, which is an extract from the likes of broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. Try Quercetin to reduce inflammation and allergy reactions.
