APRIL 2017 - TAROTSCOPES with OUR TAROT

Sarah Shipman is an artist, designer, history nerd, psychology geek, and counseling student. Within her group of friends, she is known as the person to ask which planets are currently retrograding.  Each month, she will reveal a special spirit guide or message represented by a card from her deck for your zodiac sign. For a more indepth look at your card, check out the link below.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)

Queen Elizabeth I - The Wheel of Fortune

This month, the universe will definitely have your back. Be prepared, as it seems like grand opportunities to really step into your own will present themselves. Don’t let anything distract you from being aligned with your soul’s purpose. 


TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 20)

Hildegard of Bingen - The High Priestess

Pay attention to your dreams and gut intuition this month. It’s prime time for some serious wisdom to come through. This could even be a good time to try a new spiritual practice, like automatic writing. 


GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 20)

Sophie School - 5 of Wands

You have to stand your ground. This month, you may feel like there’s a lot working against you, but be patient. Remember to have compassion for those with whom you may disagree, but stay true to your heart and keep speaking your mind.

CANCER (JUNE 21 - JULY 22)

Abigail Williams - The Devil

This month, you may feel caught up in something beyond your control. The whole thing might feel out of control, even! Try to look at the situation from a new perspective. Take a time out, if needed, to think about what you want to do next. 


LEO (JULY 23 - AUGUST 22)

Khadija - 9 of Pentacles

You will feel on top of your game this month. Enjoy it! Be sure not to get complacent; keep looking around. There may be a friend or colleague that can help you take things to the next level. 


VIRGO (AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22)

Maria Tallchief - Ace of Wands

You’re going to get a big idea! Or maybe you already have it, but you haven’t gotten started. You may have to rearrange aspects of your life to accommodate your new ventures, but it’s the right move. Go for it. 


LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 22)

Emily Dickinson - The Hermit

You may have been doing a lot of giving to others lately. This month, be sure to prioritize your needs and your self-care routines. What can you do for yourself—something just for you? What your heart needs most may not be the most obvious answer. 


SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 - NOVEMBER 22)

Sister Rosetta Tharpe - The Sun

This is your month to have some fun. Turn up the music, dance around, wherever you may be. This will do a lot to get your creative juices flowing, and you’ll find you have boundless energy. Remember to practice gratitude and have a good time.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 21 - DECEMBER 21)

Claudette Colvin - 7 of Wands

This month, the choices you make for yourself may not seem so consequential now… but as time goes on, you’ll come to find that fate was on your side. Put your best foot forward, and you’ll begin a positive and beneficial chain reaction.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19)

Lucy Hicks Anderson - 4 of Wands

Have you been wanting to get away? Now’s the time. Or maybe there’s just something you’ve been holding on to that you are finally ready to let go. Take it one step at a time, and you’ll find each one comes easier than the last.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 19)

Josephine Baker - Queen of Wands

You are on fire this month—in an excellent way. You have every reason to feel confident, so take advantage of this auspicious month and do something new! Ask out a stranger, take a new class, do something a little weird. 

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)

Frida Kahlo - Death

Get in touch with your innermost feelings. This month is a good time for you to do some deep healing and tending to old wounds. It may feel uncomfortable, at least at first, but your emotional explorations will give birth to powerful transformation.
