We’re drawing one card for each sign from the Tarot’s Major Arcana and the second from its elemental suit. E.g. since Cancer is a water sign, one card is drawn from the Major Arcana and one from the Tarot’s water suit, cups.

Leo, July 23 – August 22. The Fool and the Page of Wands. This is a great time to take that leap and start a new project. Come to it with beginner’s mind, and don’t be afraid to ask questions and learn. No, you don’t know it all, but this is an opportunity for learning and growth.
Virgo, August 23 – September 22. The Lovers and the Six of Pentacles. Are you the giver or the receiver in your relationships? Take a hard look at how you’re relating to others, and understand that this part of your life requires balance.
Libra, September 23 – October 22. Judgment and the Four of Swords. You are on the right track. But you need to take a step back, into yourself, in order to move forward this month. Clear the decks and do what you need to do to relax and recharge.
Scorpio, October 23 – November 21. Death and the Five of Cups. This is a month for endings. But even though they may seem sudden, if you look back, you’ll see the patterns that brought you here. Never fear, all is not lost. You’ve still got some cups standing – the key is to focus on what you’ve got, not what you’ve lost. Because a new beginning is right around the corner. And that’s kind of exciting.
Sagittarius, November 22 – December 21. The Hierophant and the Knight of Wands. You may be champing at the bit to charge forward, and you’ve certainly got the energy to do it. But don’t be too quick to throw over all the old ways in the process — they’ve been around for a while for a reason, and they have much to teach. Be open to learning and teaching.
Capricorn, December 22 – January 19. Strength and the Queen of Pentacles. Strength is all about self-control through love, and the Queen of Pentacles brings a level of maturity and receptivity to the mix. Be kind to yourself, forgive your flaws, and get your ass out there.
Aquarius, January 20 – February 18. The High Priestess and the Ten of Swords. If not knowing is making you crazy, then understand that some things aren’t meant to be known — at least not right now. And if a secret revealed seems too much to take, know that it’s all in how you choose to react to it.
Pisces, February 19 – March 20. The Hanged Man and the Queen of Cups. If it feels like you’re stuck, take advantage of it for some much needed reflection. Now’s the time for you to dig deep into your subconscious. Don’t be afraid to check out that shadow side too. We’ve all got one, and knowing yours is the best way to get it working for you.
Aries, March 21 – April 19. The Star and the Queen of Wands. This is your time to shine. The past may have been rocky, but you know how to combine the elements now to make things work. And the key here, is people. Bringing them together, bringing out their best, and you being your best in turn.
Taurus, April 20 – May 20. The Hermit and the Two of Pentacles. Two words: balanced reflection. You may want to hibernate, retreat, and maybe you really do need to. But be sure to bring positivity to your ruminations, and don’t neglect the physical. (This is also a great time to go on a retreat with a friend or colleague to get some solid work done.)
Gemini, May 21 – June 20. The Devil and the Queen of Swords. Take care, this month, dear Gemini, that your razor sharp intellect isn’t used for ill. You may be blinded to the big picture. Look very carefully, and think long and hard, before you speak.
Cancer, June 21 – July 22. The Emperor and the Ten of Cups. This month brings some much needed stability in the realms of live and love, Cancer. Nurturing home and relationships requires a bit of order, and you’re in charge of bringing it.
