This month brings calming energies to help soften the noise of the external world with its chaos and confusion. Personally, I’m pleased to leave the month of October behind, a month that was exhausting with worrying family responsibilities. As we enter November, a ‘7’ month (1 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 7) we are being urged to go within where there is a tremendous healing force awakening. 

To make the most of these gentle energies we need to give ourselves the time and space to restore body and mind. We are being encouraged to find the sweetness of life; to find hope. This is a time of restoration, a time for reflection and renewal. Even though externally we may feel we are being judged by the outside world, and may even find ourselves judging others, we are being supported in going into our heart-space to find our own inner truths.

Seven is ruled by the planet Neptune, a highly spiritual planet. Our dreams are especially significant, and if we write them down as soon as we awaken, we are likely to see interesting patterns emerge. We can also take advantage of these gentle Neptunian energies by sitting near water or bathing in essential oils. Meditation and music will also be supportive of our healing.

In the negative, we may vacillate when making decisions. If possible, postpone any big decisions until next month. This may be a testing time for some as the ‘7’ can bring challenges that serve to open us up and ultimately deepen our learning.

If your birth date reduces and adds up to 7, the ‘7’ energy is with you throughout your life. To a lesser extent, this is also the case if you were born on the 7th, 16th or 25th of any month. This gives a discerning nature and a strong need to understand the mysteries of life. A highly spiritual number, 7 brings much wisdom and creativity through art, music or writing. With much sensitivity, you feel things very deeply.
