The twelve signs of the zodiac are categorised into four groups of three signs, each ruled by a particular element. Find your element below to read your tarotscope:
Air - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius.
Earth - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.
Fire - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.
Water - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.
The signs ruled by each element are naturally compatible with each other, they ‘get’ each other and share similar values, attitudes and outlooks on life. Birds of a feather fly together. If your coven had a member from each zodiac sign, your other two element signs would be your best witches.
FIRE Signs - Sagittarius, Aries, Leo
Nine of swordsThose fears and concerns that you keep deep down and never mention to anyone can get amplified and blown out of proportion if you keep them to yourself, so spill the tea, Fire Signs. Find someone you trust and put your fears, anxieties and worries into words because when you do you'll find that they aren't so big and scary after all. Even if you don't want to speak them out loud, start a journal, whatever you need to do to get those thoughts out of your mind so you can see that they're just that, thoughts, not reality.
Your Crystal Prescription: Smoky Quartz
Smoky Quartz is deeply grounding and stress relieving, so if worry and anxiety is getting a hold of you and sending your head spinning into the cloud, use this crystal to bring you back to Earth.
EARTH Signs - Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo
The Strength card reminds us that it's the hardships in life that build our character and improve and develop us, not our success, we learn from our failures and our reactions to them. You will find whatever you need inside yourself to get through whatever unfolds in the month ahead, and you'll feel stonier, wiser and more resilient for being pushed. So run at your obstacles this month, Earth signs, whatever they may be, because even if you feel you don't have what you need to tackles them, you will once you do. Yes, there might be challenge and hardship (as there always is) but there will be growth and change as a result, and know that all of this experience is making you more resilient, wise and courageous, even without you knowing it.
Your Crystal Prescription: Carnelian
Carnelian is the opposite of kryptonite - it brings confidence and courage, it gives you power. If you need bravery, resilience and motivation, carnelian can lend it to you in spades. If you need a boost of vitality or a strengthening hand to hold, Carnelian is there for you - your cheerleader, your coach and your number one fan. With it’s bright, fire energy this orange, red or earthy brown stone will boost your mood, ignite your self esteem and bring you the energy and strength you need.
AIR Signs - Libra, Aquarius, Gemini
The High Preistess
The High Priestess represents inner wisdom and inner knowledge, hidden insights, secrets... so, this comes as a call to action to meditate, reflect and contemplate this month ahead. There's something brewing in yourself subconscious ready to immerse to come forth and bring you a flash of inspiration, a bright idea or a surge of self awareness or insight about who you are. There may not be much change happening around but there certainly will be within.
Your Crystal Prescription: Labradorite
Labradorite is a crystal of intuition, insight and meditation. Using this stone while you reflect or meditate, even when journaling will help those feeling flow and help you clarify the thoughts and feelings that arise.
WATER Signs - Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer
The seven of cups is a card imagination, creativity and positivity. You water signs are very creative and thrive on your instincts and powerful imaginations, but, this card could be a warming that you may be getting 'lost in space' and that your daydreams are idling. The message here is to make sure you are manifesting these dreams, because you can.
Your Crystal Prescription: Selenite
Selenite brings cleansing, calming purifying energy to help slow down your thoughts and distill them to help you focus on the ones that have the most positive benefits to you. Keep some selenite nearby when you're working (and daydreaming) or when you sleep to help pull your visions into the real world.
