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.
Wood's energy can feel somewhat subdued this month, as the double Water element's influence can be overpowering. It's essential to adapt and maintain a flexible approach to navigate any challenges, and this period may be a time for reflection and introspection.
Physical vulnerabilities for you this month include the immune system, allergies, and liver and gallbladder-related conditions.
Tip: Watch out for the immune suppressive effects of emotional stress, leaving you susceptible to colds, flu, infections, and autoimmune inflammations. Support your immune system with medicinal mushrooms like reishi, lion's mane, and turkey tail in Natural Immunity Plus. Cut down on alcohol, fatty food, and caffeine intake to lower the burden on your liver. Use milk thistle, dandelion and yarrow in Liver Support to assist your liver function. Try Allergy Tamer to keep inflammation from running away.
This month, you may feel out of control and experience excessive emotional stress, affecting your balance and sense of well-being.
Tip: Ensure that you address your emotional needs through practices such as meditation, journaling, or seeking emotional support with a psychotherapist or counselor when necessary. Try repeating the following mantra for your Wood element from my Live Your Ultimate Life book:
Dear Divine One of Peace and Tranquility
Please help me release my anger,
Resentment and frustrations.
I am forever grateful.
And practice Calm Meditation.
Your ambition and assertiveness, especially in a double Water month, characterized by emotional sensitivity, may create conflicts and disagreements with those around you.
Tip: Be sure to actively listen to others, express yourself clearly, and avoid being overtly assertive and confrontational in your communication style. Strive for a harmonious dynamic where you respect each other’s space and needs. Be open to compromise and collaboration in your relationships and practice conflict resolution, emphasizing compromise and finding common ground.
The emotional depth of this month may lead to emotional spending and make you more susceptible to impulse buying.
Tip: While making financial decisions, trust your instincts but complement them with thorough research and analysis. Strive to balance emotional fulfillment and financial responsibility to maintain your financial well-being.
Wood individuals often exhibit assertiveness and a strong drive in the workplace.
Tip: During a Water/Water month, it's essential to adapt and be flexible. Be open to adjusting plans and approaches as the emotional dynamics of the month dictate. Practice servant leadership, recognize the emotional needs of your team members, and offer the necessary support. Building a team that feels understood and valued can lead to improved results.
