October TaroScopes

Libra (Sep 23 to Oct 22) – 7 of Cups: Happy Earth Day, Libra! Feeling like you’re chasing your tail? If you keep moving at this fast pace, you are likely to make mistakes, be more reactive, and pick fights. This might make you feel good in the moment, but in the long run you will pay … emotionally. Ground yourself with a good meal from Mango’s Caribbean Restaurant.

Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 21) – The Hermit: This is a good time for you to be with yourself and deep self-analysis. It may be an emotional time for Scorpios. Take a look at where you are in your life to determine what adjustments need to be made to get you where you want to go. What beliefs do you need to release so you can receive your true desires? Have a healthy smoothie at Rush Bowls.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 to Dec 21) – 9 of Cups: You may experience a HUGE shift in finances, which can be a relief. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. The current project you are working on is blessed by unseen forces. Don’t get cocky, though. Those you can see will not stand for it.

Capricorn (Dec 22 to Jan 19) – 3 of Pentacles: Be sure to get credit for your contributions at work. There may be no “I” in “team,” but this is no time to play humble. Calm confidence, diplomacy, and a direct approach will work in your favor. With this attitude, things will move right along … just the way you want. Treat yourself to art, coffee, and a great meal at The Artisan’s Palate.

Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18) – The Hierophant: If you find yourself pushing too hard on your current projects, pull back. Letting your ego get the best of you could backfire and undo what you have accomplished. Use this time to explore new ideas by walking in someone else’s shoes for perspective. Check out Charlotte Art League for creative perspective.

Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20) – 8 of Wands: If you have been waiting for traction on that project of yours, you can expect to see positive movement now. There will be a few changes, but nothing you can’t live with. Just avoid conflict. That won’t work out well for you.

Aries (Mar 21 to Apr 19) – 10 of Wands: You are feeling pressured and, as a result, you’re feeling testy. Your first instinct to “tell people what to do” is not going to work. For now, try a compromise. This will relieve the stress on all parties … and you will likely burn fewer bridges. Relieve stress with a massage from Kelly at NoDa Yoga.

Taurus (Apr 20 to May 20) – 4 of Swords: Your energy is dropping to its annual low, so take extra care of yourself. Sign up for things that lift your spirits. As opposed to hibernating, take a more active interest in your well-being by scheduling a Limpieza with Gianna at Curio, Craft & Conjure.

Gemini (May 21 to Jun 20) – 3 of Wands (R): Feeling drained? Even though things are not going as planned, don’t waste your energy on perfection because you are going to end up making adjustments regardless. A get-together with folks you like is just the distraction you need. Relax with your best buds at Protagonist.

Cancer (Jun 21 to Jul 22) – Knight of Swords: Feeling a shift coming on? Partnerships are starting to feel delicate, but conflict results in evolution. Your attitude about relationships—particularly existing relationships—are changing. Look ahead; don’t look back. Buy yourself a wedding band from Custom Jewelry. Marry yourself. And promise you’ll never leave you.

Leo (Jul 23 to Aug 22) – Queen of Swords (R): Is it the moon, or do folks all around you stress you out? You want to give everyone a piece of your mind. Now is not the time to lose your temper and let your impatience get the best of you. Breath. Meditate. Check out the Moon Circles at Curio, Craft & Conjure to get a better understanding of how moon phases effect you.

Virgo (Aug 23 to Sep 22 ) – 3 of Cups: Pat yourself on the back! Your hard work is paying off. Treat yourself to something that reminds you of how fabulous you are when you are feeling doubtful. Things are going to start moving fast, so gear up for the last mile. Then, rest and celebrate with a champagne cocktail at Haberdish.
