ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Queen Nzinga - Keeper of Pentacles
This is a month during which you can successfully strategize. Think about what you want to accomplish in the coming months, in this last quarter of the year. If there’s some sort of complex set of issues you’ve been trying to sort out at work, home, or school (or some combination of those realms), you’ll receive the guidance necessary this month to be able to make things right.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 20)
Héloïse - 5 of Cups
Something may occur this month that will feel like a loss. It’s okay to take your time to move through it. If you find it helpful, keep a journal of your thoughts to aid in your process. Whether this loss is material or intangible, professional or personal, it’s something that can speed up your personal growth, if you let it.
GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 20)
Bibi Russell - 10 of Cups
All the hard work you’ve been putting in this year is going to be paying off big time this month. Abundance is on its way to you. If there are any creative projects you’ve been thinking about putting out there (finally publishing that article, writing a business plan, painting a self-portrait, *making a Tarot deck*), this month is a time that it will be well-received.
CANCER (JUNE 21 - JULY 22)
Queen Victoria - The Emperor
This month is shaping up to be a good one for you. You may find that you’re able to take on leadership roles like never before. While you’re working on these new projects, you might find that one of your friends or colleagues is an incredibly helpful and understanding collaborator. Also, if you have the means and the motivation, this would be a good time to pick up some new, interesting pieces for your wardrobe. You might find that you’re going to be a trendsetter this month.
LEO (JULY 23 - AUGUST 22)
Claudette Colvin - 7 of Wands
This month, the choices you make for yourself may not seem of much consequence. Perhaps lately, you’ve been feeling a little burnt out or like you’re fighting against the energy of last month’s Mercury retrograde and solar eclipse. 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.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22)
Helen Keller - 2 of Swords
As we enter the final quarter of the year, now is the time to take stock of what you have and what you’re looking to bring in. What have you been overlooking? If there’s that one item on your list you really need to accomplish, or a bad habit you want to kick, this month will be when you finally notice the obstacles in your life, or patterns in your own behavior, that have been in your way.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 22)
Mary I - Knight of Pentacles
Be careful not to get caught up in “shoulds.” There’s a lot of things the people around us may think we should do. And sometimes it’s hard not to want to try to do all those things to make people happy. However, this month, you may be given some well-intentioned suggestions that simply do not resonate with who you’re meant to be. It’s okay to politely and charmingly disregard that kind of advice.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 - NOVEMBER 22)
Eleanor of Aquitaine - 7 of Cups
This month, you may feel like you have too many choices, not enough information to make the right decision, or both. However, it turns out, you are in a great position this month to make a good call. Stay grounded in your personal power, and only consult with friends who have stood by you for a long time. You’ll know what to do.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 21 - DECEMBER 21)
Sister Rosetta Tharpe - The Sun
If you haven’t been having enough fun all summer, this month is a good time to make up for it. Turn up the music, dance around. Book that massage. If there’s some task or chore you can delegate out to another person, do it. You’ll free up space for some much-needed happiness and creative energy.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19)
Maria Tallchief - Ace of Wands
You’re primed to have a “lightbulb moment” this month--a big idea might strike you like a lightning bolt. If you already have it, but haven’t gotten started, you may need to rearrange certain aspects of your life to make room for this new project. You’ll feel so much better when you do.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 19)
Gertrude Ederle - 8 of Cups
If you’re going on a trip this month, it’s going to be a great one! Don’t be surprised if something really cool happens. Maybe you’ll meet a new mentor, or find a new love interest, or get hired for a new job. Even if nothing quite that significant pops up, it’s still going to be an important journey. Make sure to stay present and take it all in.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Anne Frank - The Star
Dreamy Pisces, with the Full Moon in your sign this month, you’re so tuned into the spirit/dream world as you move through the physical realm. Don’t let others’ shenanigans distract you too much from staying mindful of your thoughts and feelings. That’s your intuition guiding you. Definitely consider keeping a dream journal this month, if you don’t already.
