The Weekly Tarot Forecast (16-22 November)
Life is pretty complicated, right? Did you ever wish that you had a tool that could give you an objective look into your life? Something that could help you unravel life's greater mysteries, or give you some kind of insight or clarity? Well, tarot is a tool for doing exactly that. Many people shy away from tarot cards, thinking it is about fortune telling and that those who do it are charlatans.
Tarot is a rich and profound tool that helps you attune to your own subconscious through the use of colours, imagery and symbolism. It is a deck of 78 cards which depict the entirety of the human experience. From the overarching complex themes of our lives to the day-to-day situations, such as emotions, thoughts and words, finances and motivations and beliefs - all of these are depicted in the tarot cards. The most amazing thing about tarot is that it can offer you a glimpse into the future.
But remember, nothing is written in stone. You have the free will to direct your own fate. Curious to see how it works? Try this for yourself.
Here's how this works:
- First, ask yourself this: "How can I work with the energies of the week of 16 November – 22 November?"
- Close your eyes. Take a deep breath.
- Choose a card or crystal in the picture above. There is no right or wrong answer. Just your intuition guiding you.
- This card will be your tarot card for the week.
- Your reveal is in the picture below. The picture shows what your card is, and the reading for each card is written below.
This is a general reading for the week of 16 November – 22 November, 2022.

The Hermit Reversed
This week, there is a need to go inwards and to detach from the material aspects and earthly pleasures of life. The external noise needs to be turned down. This is not a time for socialising and you might benefit from some much needed me time. Doing so is not selfish, it is the most selfless thing you can do for others. Pray or meditate, seek some kind of spiritual enlightenment. As the days get colder and darker, your wisdom will enable you to see beyond the clutter. You may be called to do some kind of detoxification or purifying. This could be of your physical body and/or space. How much stuff do you really need? Minimise.
Affirmation: I love spending time by myself.
Eight of Pentacles
This week is all about work, work, and work. There is a reverent joy you may find in it, making the hours fly. Getting into a deep flow state where you are effortlessly producing will feel like a meditative experience. This is a week for you to demonstrate your self-mastery, make tangible progress towards your goals, and be committed to your calling.
Work is very much a part of our lives. It cannot be separated; it needs to be integrated. Feel the enjoyment in getting things done. Experience your own development and progress through the process. You are building your future with every step taken. See it clearly in your head to motivate you. Your effort will bear results. Hard work requires sacrifice. It requires burning the midnight oil, it requires saying no to fun activities with friends. When you feel the fear of missing out, visualise and imagine that you are exactly where you want to be.
Affirmation: I love what I do and I do what I love.
The Empress Reversed
This week, focus on selfcare. Remember, this looks different to everyone. It does not mean fancy spa days or facials — although this can be it for some. It could mean taking a nap on your super comfy couch, cooking a delicious meal for yourself, or even a walk out in nature. If you are always taking care of others and not yourself, you are doing yourself a disservice in the long run. Think about how you block your own abundance. Do you nurture yourself, your goals, your relationships? Do you allow space for your fertile imagination to take root and grow tangible results? In order for you to fight your overwhelming responsibilities — give yourself the nourishment you need. Let your creative abilities flow freely. Turn to nature for inspiration and healing. Enjoy the richness of your life. You are worth it.
Affirmation: I effortlessly attract abundance.
