November Tarotscope: Thriving with Lilith
8 OF STONES - LILITH - 2 OF KNIVES
Happy November, Kittens!
This month brings a much needed boost of energy after spending the majority of 2018 in integration mode hence all of the retrogrades we’ve experienced this year. In numerology, November carries the essence of the number 4 which brings our attention to pragmatism, stability and productivity. The Emperor is associated with this energy in the Rider-Waite tarot exemplifying the masculine qualities that reflect strength and fortitude.
The Mythical Goddess tarot so rightfully crowns Lilith as the representation of this archetype.
This fierce goddess’s origins date back to the beginning of time, in biblical context, as Lilith was the original wife of Adam prior to Eve’s existence. “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27) Lilith herself came from the very dust which Adam arose. Due to the patriarchal climate of the times, Lilith was expected to submit to Adam’s authority. However, she felt that she was equal to him and instead of succumbing to the bullshit she decided to flee the Garden of Eden instead. It wasn’t until later on, in Genesis 2:18-23, that God created Adam’s new helpmate, Eve, from his own rib. The Bible doesn’t mention the name Lilith for a reason. As many of us know this religious doctrine is used as a tool to reinforce patriarchy, and Eve was the ideal woman to perpetuate the agenda that women are lesser than their male counterpart.
November serves as a reminder that we, as women, embody both the feminine and masculine energy. This month is calling us to embody our personal power by recognizing our authority and taking action. It’s time to strike, ladies! The supporting messages of the 8 of Stones and 2 of Knives encourages us to come out of a space of indecision and procrastination. Enough ruminating and bouncing ideas around. This month requires you to put your nose to the grindstone. We have the opportunity to experience a major paradigm shift this month with the influence of the number 22 involved as well. This master number, known as the “master builder,” gives us the ability to turn our dreams into a practical reality which will challenge us to stay grounded and focused on what we truly desire. We are moving from a space of surviving to thriving.
Give your dreams a chance this month. Even if that means taking a small step towards the bigger picture.
