Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 21) – Queen of Swords (R): Happy Earth Day, Scorpio! You have an overwhelming urge to verbally express yourself. DON’T. This is the voice of your ego, not your Spirit. The outcome will not be what you imagine. You will end up moonwalking your way through an apology. Why not express yourself with a tattoo at Fu’s Custom Tattoo? Also, avoid overestimating your potential income by counting your chickens before they hatch.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 to Dec 21) – The Hermit: Yes, you usually ARE the life of the party (and you cherish the role), but a part of you is being drawn inward and you don’t want to hang with anyone. Honor yourself FIRST, so when you are ready to party again, you are feeding your Soul, not depleting it. Get clarity with a reading from Gina at Curio, Craft & Conjure.
Capricorn (Dec 22 to Jan 19) – 7 of Swords: Sometimes, social commitments feel exhausting. When you feel like this, you are likely to experience misunderstandings. You may be feeling vulnerable, so take time to nurture yourself. Also, beware: A secret of yours may be exposed this month. Have a solo dinner at Mango’s. Feed your Soul.
Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18) – 8 of Pentacles: Redoing a project is both frustrating and time-consuming, but the good news is it will be even BETTER when you’re done! Then, enjoy your social life – you could be the belle of the ball, but try not to win the “Lampshade Award.” Start the party by meeting friends at the bar at Haberdish.
Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20) – Knight of Swords: Stand in your truth. You may be put on the spot for something that you said in the past, but with new information comes new beliefs. No need to apologize. Also, great opportunities can pop up for you this month, but keep your ego in check. Think before you speak. Write your angry feelings in a new journal from Ruby’s Gift.
Aries (Mar 21 to Apr 19) – 8 of Cups: It’s time to try new things—especially now that you’re feeling a little more balanced. You can try traveling to somewhere distant to open your mind to experiencing new ways of life while expanding your ideas regarding beauty, music, and art. Check out Osiris Rain’s murals around NoDa. Now THAT is art.
Taurus (Apr 20 to May 20) – 4 of Swords: Now is the time to evaluate the heart of your current relationship or your beliefs about relationships as a whole. Don’t miss this valuable growth opportunity—even though it will be uncomfortable. This type of growth usually doesn’t feel good anyway. A Limpieza from Gianna at Curio, Craft & Conjure can help you clear your energetic cobwebs.
Gemini (May 21 to Jun 20) – Ace of Cups: Enjoy time with your partner. Adventure and opportunity surround you! Business partnerships can also be extremely lucrative—in fact, all one-on-one relationships are especially receptive now. Not in a relationship? The energetic shift this month may change that.
Cancer (Jun 21 to Jul 22) – Queen of Swords (R): Have a live-in lover? Things may get a little hairy. Remember, you have a role in this dynamic, and you are now being given the chance to understand what it is. The key to success here is communication. You don’t live with a mind reader. If you stuck your foot in your mouth, buy your partner a gift at Custom Jewelry Lab.
Leo (Jul 23 to Aug 22) – 10 of Pentacles: This month you are given the opportunity to deal with some long-ignored family history. Don’t allow yourself or others to go so far in the past that old wounds reopen causing more harm than good. It’s time you finally hashed this out so you and others can heal. Spend quality time with cats at Mac Tabby Cat Café.
Virgo (Aug 23 to Sep 22 ) – Ace of Wands (R): Stop trying to write NOW. You are at risk of miscommunicating. Take time to fine-tune, purge, and edit. Writer’s block? Stop and do a Virgo thing: Clear your mental constipation by cleaning out a kitchen cabinet (alphabetizing the spices) or closet (color code it!)
Libra (Sep 23 to Oct 22) – 4 of Pentacles (R): Review your expenses and finances. During this time, you may have one drink too many and experience buyer’s remorse because you are being too free with your money. Take a break from spending and limit yourself to a cash diet.
