Virgo (Aug 23 to Sep 22 ) – 7 of Cups: Remind yourself that you are as perfect as you can be at this moment. Don’t feel the need to defend yourself. Acknowledge that every emotion is temporary. Feeling restless? Shift the energy around in your home with color, plants, crystals, and a singing bowl from Pura Vida.
Libra (Sep 23 to Oct 22) – Temperance (R): Balance has not been your middle name lately. Take time for yourself. Slow down before life speeds up and you completely lose track of yourself. Spending time with family has its own rewards. Buy a unique gift for yourself or that special someone—like your mother—at Ruby’s Gift.
Scorpio (Oct 23 to Nov 21) – 7 of Wands (R): You don’t have to take anyone’s advice. You have your own inner guidance. Address what you feel you need to address, not what other’s tell you to. This way, whether things work out or they don’t, you can take the credit or the blame. In the meantime, treat your body to a Green Machine from Juice Box.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 to Dec 21) – 3 of Pentacles: You feel great … even if work is a pain in the ass. No worries! You can be the life of the party, so hang out and have fun until the shit-uation at work shifts. Looking to update your look? May I suggest Orange Olive for the ladies or NoDa Barbers for the guys?
Capricorn (Dec 22 to Jan 19) – 4 of Swords: It’s time for you to go deep. A little introspection will go a long way with you now. You may find yourself completely shifting direction and finding new obstacles to overcome. Get into the groove of things by taking a few classes at NoDa Yoga.
Aquarius (Jan 20 to Feb 18) – 9 of Pentacles: It’s time for you to look at your health and make some hard choices. Look at your physical and emotional health. Steps can be made to enhance the quality of each. The time and effort you make to care for others should now (and forever) be extended to yourself. Self-care can serve you well.
Pisces (Feb 19 to Mar 20) – The Lovers: Daydreaming is no way to deal with reality. Having relationship issues? It’s time for the “come to Jesus” you have been avoiding. Think of it as conversation, NOT confrontation. Meet your partner at a neutral place, like NoDa Company Store. Hash things out over a friendly beer.
Aries (Mar 21 to Apr 19) – 7 of Pentacles: This is a productive time for you, and you are working it! Balance this hard work with some “me” time. Tie up loose ends and allow time for romance, travel, or a fun night with your boo at Sanctuary.
Taurus (Apr 20 to May 20) – 3 of Cups (R): It’s time for you to (re)evaluate your health habits. Embrace foods, exercise routines, and habits that will ground you. It’s also a good time to go inward and contemplate the messages your body is giving you. Have trouble interpreting them? Get a Limpieza at Curio, Craft & Conjure. Gianna is the resident Body Whisperer there, and she’ll set you straight.
Gemini (May 21 to Jun 20) – 4 of Wands (R): Now is the time to get your house in order, literally. Purge, organize, and streamline when inspired. The energy around you is about to shift and you will want to dedicate your time to new interests, fun, and romance.
Cancer (Jun 21 to Jul 22) – 5 of Cups: You have a lot stirring inside you now. It is the perfect time to sort it all out by writing it down. This will also help you release some of the emotional energy that is weighing you down. When the energy lifts and you are feeling lighter, treat yourself to something special from Custom Jewelry.
Leo (Jul 23 to Aug 22) – 8 of Pentacles: Your “back to school” attitude shows up as “back to business”! It’s a great time to review your finances and implement a new exercise and eating plan. When you are done adulting, meet your besty at The Crepe Cellar, or enjoy doing what you love … over and over again.
