Cancer (Jun 21 to Jul 22) – 9 of Pentacles: Do your routines reflect how you want to look and feel? You may have come to uncomfortable realizations that helped you realize it is time to make adjustments for yourself and your health. Unfortunately, you have to do the work here, but you can go to Curio, Craft & Conjure for magickal support.
Leo (Jul 23 to Aug 22) – Queen of Swords: Feel like speakin’ your mind, huh, Leo? You may spend your time moonwalking through apologies, but hey, truth is truth. If people can’t handle the truth, find those who can … or adopt a cat at Mac Tabby Cat Café. (Cat’s don’t argue.)
Virgo (Aug 23 to Sep 22 ) – 3 of Cups: Surprise! Your “inner foodie” is coming out to play! Take a cooking class and invite a few friends over to taste the fabulous dish you learned to make. Or take a friend to Crepe Cellar for dinner. Feeding others brings out your “inner care-taker”—helping you feel the love yourself.
Libra (Sep 23 to Oct 22) – 5 of Swords: Some may say that your tongue is like a knife, but it’s more like a friggin’ machete. And there are no “take backs” once the machete cuts to the core. Focus on honing your professional skills and do everyone in your sphere of influence a favor: Spend some time alone this month.
Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 21) – The Tower: Expect drama. You can’t avoid it, but you can determine how you will respond. (Note: I did not say “react.”) A great option is to focus on something new. Have you heard about the NoDa Costume Crawl? It’s the 3rd Thursday each month. It may provide the perfect escape as you ride out the storm.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 to Dec 21) – High Priestess: As much as you would LOVE to jump on your soapbox and offer your sage wisdom to the masses, DON’T. Not only will it be poorly received, but the truth of the matter is that these ho’s ain’t ready for the truth. Go to Bartique to sip & shop. You’ll look fabulous while grinning from the sidelines.
Capricorn (Dec 22 to Jan 19) – 2 of Pentacles: You think you want to work with your partner, but you may want to do a test drive first. Determine who does what, and what the split looks like. In fact, you need to discuss ALL the hairy details. The reality is simple: Some folks can do this with ease and grace… Others? Not so much.
Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18) – 4 of Swords: Partnerships are complex…with tons of potential for egos to get in the way of communication. Take care of YOU. Do something JUST for YOU. Get a massage or create another “self-care” routine. The benefits will help you digest times like these.
Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20) – Temperance: Details are NOT your strong suit, but now is the time to stay on top of them to avoid problems later. If problems do pop up, I won’t say “I told you so,” I’ll just suggest doing something—anything—for someone else. It will make you feel better.
Aries (Mar 21 to Apr 19) – Empress: You may experience some feelings around your mother this month. Whether she is still “here” or not, you will find it time to relieve yourself of shame AND blame. Allow the lessons, power, and opportunities from your past to transform any previous judgment on her or yourself.
Taurus (Apr 20 to May 20) – 6 of Cups: Nostalgia and memories from your past may inspire you to reach out to old friends or family you haven’t seen in forever. You may even journal about these things so you can hold on to the good memories and release the bad ones.
Gemini (May 21 to Jun 20) – 7 of Pentacles: It’s time to hunt for treasure: antique shops, yard sales, and your parents’ house may be good places to start. Be sure what you own is what you value. Purge the rest to make room for “new.”
