AstroTarot Forecast for December 2017

What do the cards have in store for you this month? Look for your Sun Sign below to find out! (Or, if you're an Astrology buff, consult your Sun, Moon and ASC for a more in-depth overview). For this Forecast, I used our brand new Coffee Tarot deck (art by my husband, Ron). Grab yours at CoffeeTarotDeck.com (it comes with a hand-sewn bag, .pdf of Keywords and a secret Facebook Group).

ARIES
DARKENED400 Coffee9 Air GE
Aries: March 21- April 19 (Nine of Air) –Fiery Aries, you’ve got a lot on your mind this month—but the good news is most of it is in your…drumroll…mind! Seriously, you’re getting yourself worked up into a tizzy about unfounded fears and anxieties. Calm down, slow down, try some Tension Tamer Tea (it totally works—trust me) and relaaaaaax. Ahhhh, doesn’t that feel better? Breathe deeply, and often. Stay centered. Focus on what is good, beautiful and peaceful.

TAURUS
DARKENED400 CoffeePage Air GE
Taurus:
 April 20 - May 20 (Page of Air) – Earthly Taurus, despite the busy holiday season, this month is a great time for you to start studying something new. You don’t have to go all out and enroll in a college course, mind you (unless you want to!), but you’re unusually curious and open right now. Don’t be afraid to ask pointed questions to those around you, but steer clear of gossip and pettiness (you’ll be tempted to join in the fray). Think childlike—not childish.

GEMINI

DARKENED400 3 Fire GE

Gemini: May 21- June 21 (Three of Fire) – Airy Gemini, it’s a pirate’s life for you this month. (Just kidding!) Seriously, though, don’t be afraid to imitate our jolly captain by allowing yourself to be absorbed with your favorite hobbies. The ship won’t burn down, you’ll end up circling around to an opportunity once again and others have your back (and duties) pretty much covered. Focus on the adventure of the journey, rather than the destination. ROI will take care of itself.

CANCER

DARKENED400 CoffeeKing Earth GE

Cancer: June 22 - July 22 (King of Earth) – Watery Cancer, you may want to consult a financial advisor this month, especially in relation to your business, income, taxes or retirement funds. If you’ve been an emotional spender as of late, you may be surprised at just how much debt you’ve accrued. Continue to be generous to employees and family members, but tighten the reins on personal indulgences. If you’re crying “but I’ve worked so hard—I deserve it!” remember that you also deserve a tidy nest egg for unexpected, large purchases.

LEO

DARKENED400 Coffee8 Water GE

Leo: July 23 - August 22 (Eight of Water) – Fiery Leo, you tend to like the spotlight—so continuing to do what you’re good at, especially when it earns accolades, seems like a no-brainer. That is, until a yearning to go higher and deeper with authentic living nags at so persistently you can’t ignore it. Your inner voice is getting louder than the crowd’s, so now you face a choice: walk away from a good gig…or continue on until the staleness chokes your creativity.

VIRGO

DARKENED400 Knight Fire

Virgo:
 August 23 - September 22 (Knight of Fire) – Earthy Virgo, it’s time to charge ahead with passion, vigor and purpose! Take your foot off the brake, especially if you’ve already received marching orders from wise ones or Spirit. Consistent movement is key to gaining, and maintaining, momentum. It may be tempting to let your cautious nature hold you back, but in the quest for healing, wholeness and all-around mastery, it’s much better to burn, burn, burn!

LIBRA

DARKENED400 Coffee2 of Air GE

Libra: September 23 - October 22 (Two of Air) – Airy Libra, you poor thing! You’re naturally the mediator anyway, but this month finds you in an important diplomatic role (probably seated at the holiday table, preventing bloodshed from relatives arguing about politics, religion or both!). ::sigh:: It sucks, I know, but you’re really good at seeing both sides of an issue—and cascading refreshing baking soda on little familial fires. Stay strong and stay objective. Peace out.

SCORPIO

DARKENED400 CoffeeMoon Final Javanaut

Scorpio: October 23 - November 21 (The Moon) – Watery Scorpio, usually you are the enigma in da house. Surprise! This month, you won’t know whether you’re coming or going. Is someone gaslighting you? Screwing with your head? Nah—it’s probably just hormones or the need for more sleep (seriously). Enjoy the darker months, snuggle with copious covers, read fiction and allow your right brain to take over. Trying to force things—any thing—will only make things worse.

SAGITTARIUS

DARKENED400 CoffeeSun GE

Sagittarius: November 22 - December 21 (The Sun) – Happy Birthday, Fiery Sagittarius! You’re the complete opposite of Scorpio this month: blazing clarity, certainty and robust health radiates from your being. Rise earlier than usual and take advantage of the quietude. If you do, unexpected illuminating insights will descend—amping up your consciousness and nudging your “Stay Woke” meter off the charts.

CAPRICORN

DARKENED400 Page Fire

Capricorn: December 22 - January 19 (Page of Fire) – Earthy Capricorn, instead of working your butt off for the final monthly climb of the year, acknowledge that you’ve already done, and earned, enough. It’s time to get all Anne of Green Gables by acting like everything and everyone in the world is fascinating, amazing and glorious. (Fake it if you have to; the feelings will come). Put the “wonder” back into wonderful—and let your Inner Child run free.

AQUARIUS

DARKENED400 CoffeeEmperor GE

Aquarius: January 20 - February 18 (The Emperor) – Airy Aquarius, don’t wait until January to organize, compartmentalize or finalize. The energy this month gives you an extra “be-in-charge” boost, so you might as well run with it (maybe you’ll get to play next month?). Yeah, adulting can be a pain, but you’re arguably the most “adult” of the entire Zodiac—so it’s basically “expect more of the same”. Relish being an authority figure, because you truly are helping those who look to you as a model.  

PISCES

DARKENED400 Coffee10 Air GE

Pisces: February 19 - March 20 (Ten of Air) – Watery Pisces, I don’t need to tell you to stay away from needles, weed, pills or drink. But here I am, telling you to stay away from things that will cook your brain and impede your judgment! Coffee is allowed. And tea. And distilled water. Seriously, though, steer clear of anything that over-stimulates this month (including the internet and 24-hour news). You’re better off having your head in the sand…than having your brain fried.
