Aries (March 21-April 20)
Five of Coins: Things haven’t gone your way and you’re hurt and lonely. The Five of Coins reminds you to take a step back, quiet yourself, and find what the lesson in this situation really is. Growth is at hand, but it’s up to you to take it. Sometimes things don’t go your way for a reason.
Taurus (April 21-May 21)
King of Coins: The King of Coins solidifies that your life right now is about practicality. Dot your i’s and cross your t’s this month. Now is not the time to take chances or act frivolously. Be smart; it’s all about setting everything up now so you can handle what’s to come. Tradition is valued right now.
Gemini (May 22-June 21)
Four of Wands: Celebrate and spend time with your fellow human beings! This month is a bit of a break for you: breathe, and maybe take some time to shake those tail feathers. The Four of Wands encourages you to do what you love with others, support each other, and enjoy each other’s company.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Eight of Wands: You’re moving towards your goals and you’re moving fast. You expect people to know what you’re thinking and feeling, but you have to make it abundantly clear what you need. This is the homestretch and you’ll get to your destination quickly; it’s up to you if you get there unscathed. Focus and remember your initial intentions. Things can derail when you’re so close.
Leo (July 23-August 21)
Strength: August brings some major life lessons. Your strength this month does not come from forcing your obstacles to submit through brute force, but rather by working with them and gently taming them. Align with your difficult situations, face them, learn from them. Also remember to be kind to yourself and those around you.
Virgo (August 24-September 22)
The Devil: Let’s face it, we all become co-dependent on something or someone at some point in our lives. Right now, something is not serving your higher self, but you’re not letting go. It’s shiny, it’s comfortable, and it on paper looks perfect-but is it really? This month, take a hard look at your habits, your addictions, your dependencies. Deep down you know it’s not right for you.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Four of Swords: When was the last time you meditated? The Four of Swords is calling you to quiet your mind, take some time to ruminate on your current situation, and spend time alone. Sometimes we can’t see clearly when we’re too close to a problem. Be on the lookout for signs-your messengers are around you especially this month to guide and encourage you.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Ten of Swords: Sometimes things come crashing down and you feel like you will never recover. But Scorpio, when things end it means there’s now room for something new and exciting. You now have the opportunity to create, to build, to start something you’ve always wanted. You are now free from something that was holding you back, but it’s up to you to get up.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Nine of Wands: You are so close to succeeding! It’s been a bit of an uphill battle but now is the final stretch. Even though you may be exhausted, just take a sip of water, breathe deep, and get back to it. It will pay off, and then you will be able to take a much deserved break. Don’t lose focus now!
Capricorn (December 23-January 20)
Ace of Cups: You have a brief opportunity this month for emotional connection. Whether it’s with the Universe, yourself, or another person, August brings you love. Step out of your tendency to be pragmatic and logical and take time to nourish your heart and soul. Involving yourself in something creative will assist in this emotional wellspring.
Aquarius (January 21-February 19)
Three of Swords: No one likes a broken heart or disappointment. Unfortunately everyone has to go through it. The Three of Swords reminds you that with the hurt and pain of something that has betrayed you, comes personal growth and opportunities. Sometimes the truth will hurt, but it’s better than living a lie. This is your opportunity to evolve.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Page of Cups: Curiosity and child-like wonder are the themes this month for you. You’re at a period of new experiences and discoveries about yourself and the world around you. Take this month to ask questions and learn. You have an opportunity to tap into your potentials which have otherwise gone unnoticed or suppressed.
