ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Shirley Chisholm - Temperance
Keep moving forward with your plans, but be thinking long-term rather than focusing only on what’s in front of you. There is value, sometimes, in doing the latter, but this month is a good time for you to meditate on how you want to wrap up this year, and how you want to start the next one. Start building a foundation now, even if that means just writing down your plans on paper.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 20)
Jane Grey - 10 of Swords
November is your time to let go of what you can’t control—which are most things. That can be fortunate or unfortunate depending on how you look at it. There may be some obstacles that arise in the coming weeks that require your acceptance, rather than a hard-fought resolution. Feel what direction your gut is pulling you and don’t overwhelm yourself with stories about what you “should” do.
GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 20)
Cleopatra - Keeper of Wands
Use this month to make powerful connections! Find a networking event to attend, or go to some social gatherings where you can meet new, exciting people. Your charms are especially irresistible lately! However, don’t get yourself tied up into any big commitments or contracts just yet—hold off for a little while and get a more in-depth of the situation and the people involved.
CANCER (JUNE 21 - JULY 22)
St. Julian of Norwich - 3 of Swords
November is a good month for you to look back at the recent months and consider how you can transform any obstacles and/or emotional pain into something different. Maybe it’s time to start your novel, or at least write an article about an issue close to your heart. Perhaps you need to spend some time away from social connections that currently feel toxic or draining. Your deep feelings are guiding you to the place where inspiration will strike you.
LEO (JULY 23 - AUGUST 22)
Elizabeth I - The Wheel of Fortune
You have the potential to be on top of your game this month. There may be a current negative situation that seems never-ending, but this month, it’s likely that something will give way, lessen, and disappear. And what better to take the place of some negative energy than your bright shining light?
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22)
Josephine Baker - Queen of Wands
November is a great time for you to be creative. Whatever projects you begin are going to fill you with joy, and your happiness will likely be infectious. If you are hoping to work on some sort of collaborative effort, whether it be professional or personal, you can set the tone for the entire project with your enthusiasm. Even if you’re pursuing your goals solo, this is a great time for you to take a little risk and have fun at the same time.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 22)
Emily Dickinson - The Hermit
Take some time to yourself this month, even though it’s your nature to be social and charming. Make sure you’re staying true to yourself, even if you feel alone in doing so. That feeling, while perfectly valid, is temporary. People will be drawn to your authentic and balanced energy sooner or later.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 - NOVEMBER 22)
Eleanor Roosevelt - Keeper of Cups
Take stock of your current relationships and how they are affecting you. Who in your life is draining your energy? Most importantly, who is supporting you and challenging you to be the best version of yourself? November is a good time for you to re-configure and arrange these connections to best serve your current emotional and spiritual needs.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 21 - DECEMBER 21)
Mary Shelley - The Moon
Take the time, and spend the energy, preparing yourself to go deep into a mode of creativity and transformation this month. You may want to physically clear some space in your room, studio, or office to make room (at least symbolically) for the growth that you are primed to experience in the coming few weeks. You may find yourself up late some nights, losing sleep because your mind is running wild with ideas. Don’t fight this; you’ll catch up on the sleep later.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19)
Hattie McDaniel - Knight of Wands
This month, remember to find the humor in the array of situations you find yourself in. If you take yourself too seriously, you may not see the big picture, or be able to appreciate anything new coming into your life. November is a good month for you to sharpen any skills you’ve been already working on, or pick up a project you’ve previously neglected.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 19)
Wu Zeitan - 10 of Wands
This November, you are going to be going, going, going… Remember to prioritize. Sometimes the secret to “doing it all,” is to just not. Instead, focus on a few chosen areas that truly bring you joy. You are in a great position to put in your best work this month.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Katherine Johnson - 8 of Pentacles
You may feel like the odds are currently stacked against you. Keep plugging away at whatever it is you’re working on, personal and/or professional. You may not get the promotion you were hoping for, but another (and better) one is likely coming up. Keep your nose to the grindstone and keep improving what’s important to you.
