Month: November 2019
Astrology can help us learn and understand more about ourselves than we ever thought possible through its rich use of symbolism and symbiotic relationships—each astrological sign is associated with many elements, from flowers to colors to crystals and nearly everything in between, including trees.
Trees are one of the most mystical creatures in nature, with their ancient energy full of wisdom and understanding. You can feel the majestic power of a tree from a mile away, and its magical aura is palpable. It’s hard to be in the presence of such wonder without feeling gratitude for the beauty of life.
Keep reading to find out which tree most closely resembles the unique personality of your zodiac sign.
Aries: Daring Dogwood
Dogwoods are beautiful, flowering trees that produce delicate, rosy blooms. Like the fiery sign of Aries, dogwoods represent durability, tenacity, strength, and resilience. The Dogwood doesn’t give up in challenging conditions, and neither do Aries. While your personality contains beauty and grace, you’re a force to be reckoned with.
Taurus: Whispering Willow
While the earthy Taurus may be known for being stubborn, they can actually be quite malleable. A Taurus will literally bend over backwards for their loved ones, much like the flexible, loyal nature of the Willow tree. You’re truly dedicated to your friends and family. The willow can also act as a reminder for Taureans to learn to surrender to forces beyond our control.
Gemini: Wise Oak
Geminis are ruled by intellectual Air, and their big brains prove it. Like the noble oak tree, Geminis move at their own pace, gathering knowledge and wisdom along the way. The oak tree is a symbol of honor—much like the indecisive but genuine Gemini. While you may struggle when face with too many choices, you always manage to stay true to yourself.
Cancer: Holy, Holly!
Water-ruled Cancers have a loving, giving heart that glows with compassion and empathy. Cancers like to take care of their loved ones, making sure they feel appreciated and supported. The Holly tree shares the same protective qualities, and it is said to keep one safe from evil or negative energies or spirits. Like the loving Cancer, this tree represents peace and good will.
Leo: Inspiring Hazel
Leos, ruled by Fire, have an energy that everyone around them can feel; their spirit buzzes with warmth and vigor, and their aura can be quite the inspiration to those around them. Similarly, the Hazel tree is associated with inspiring spirituality and creativity. The spirit of the Hazel reflects Leo’s wisdom, encouraging energy, and connection to the spiritual realm.

Virgo: Far-Reaching Aspen
Virgos are earthy and grounded, with their eyes clearly focused on the goals they want to accomplish and the tasks that need to get done for that to happen. Like the beautiful aspen tree, Virgos represent independence, focus, and adventure. Aspens can also help one understand unconditional love, a reminder for Virgo to be gentler on themselves and others.
Libra: Resilient Poplar
An Air sign, Libras are known for being drawn to beauty, truth, balance, and love. However, while Libras are likely to prefer peace and harmony, they are resilient under duress and able to endure challenging times with an air of grace. Like the resilient Poplar, a Libra can see the silver lining in just about any situation and find a way to press forward with determination.
Scorpio: Healing Hemlock
Scorpios feel deeply, their emotions flowing like the Water that rules their sign. When a Scorpio is wounded, that wound takes time to heal. The Hemlock tree is a symbol of healing, and reminds you to tend to your emotional pains, Scorpio. While you are strong like the Hemlock, which represents longevity, you must learn to take care of your more vulnerable side.
Sagittarius: Transformative Elder
Sagittarians are a fiery sign with a chameleon-like personality—you are keen on transformation, and you shift yourself often to suit your needs. Like the Elder tree, your personality represents the many different and beautiful phases of life, from birth to death and beyond. This tree reminds you to stay true to yourself while you grow and change—you are beautiful as you are.
Capricorn: Positive Birch
The Capricorn’s earthiness results in hard work, determination, and a reserved nature. Sometimes, your go-go-go attitude can lead to negativity and stress, which is why you should connect yourself to the Birch tree. This tree represents protection and new beginnings, and its branches have the power to sweep away negativity, reminding you to stay positive and try new things.
Aquarius: Inventive Ash
Aquarians are ruled by the innovative planet Neptune, resulting in a personality that is full of thought-provoking ideas. Like the Ash tree, the Aquarius seems to float between realms, accessing the knowledge of a Universe that we can’t see. The Ash tree is associated with wisdom and encourages you to have faith in your otherworldly ideas.
Pisces: Wild Olive
Water-ruled Pisces are compassionate and empathetic to a fault—you sometimes feel and experience the pain of others so deeply that you forget what your own emotions feel like or how to embrace them. Like the Wild Olive tree, you extend your branches of peace to those who need it most. But the Wild Olive tree also reminds you to shower some of that empathy on yourself, as well.
Trees have a lot to tell us and share with us—their wisdom, their energy, and their protection from the metaphorical storm. There is so much to love and adore about trees, that it’s no wonder many of us want to give them a hug.

Scorpio season brings the Scorpionic energy to the fray – this is a time for upheaval and being honest with oneself and others, which can lead to sudden and shocking events that have the potential to turn our lives upside down. In Libra, our desire to keep things harmonious and balanced is strong. The downside to this period is that, in our desire for peace, we are more inclined to sweep things under the rug.
This all changes when Scorpio arrives. Just as Scorpio people cannot stand falsities and have a keen instinct for seeing beyond the superficial and getting to the heart of the matter, so does the energy of Scorpio. Some will embrace it with open arms; others will shrink back in fear. Whatever the reaction, Scorpio is always guaranteed to create a shake-up – and sometimes, a much-needed one. Checking out your Scorpio horoscope today and your Scorpio daily horoscope can provide even greater insight for those wishing to dig a little deeper into this intense sign.
Which Tarot Cards Represent Scorpio?
Scorpio is the sign of transformation, regeneration and death. But not the death that necessarily springs to mind (though it is true that many Scorpios tend to have a fascination with death!); it is the death of something in their lives that paves the way for a more fulfilling future.
This could be the death of a situation, an aspect of their character, a relationship, a career… think of the caterpillar that turns into a butterfly or a phoenix that rises from the ashes. This type of death, like the literal death, is rarely pleasant or easy – but it often paves the way for something better.
Scorpio in the Major Arcana: Death
Therefore, the card associated most with Scorpio in the Tarot is the Death card.
Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, lord of the underworld. Like Scorpio, the Death card represents all that death tends to encompass – in many Tarot decks, a skeleton in armour rides into town on a horse, showing little mercy to those who stand in his way. It shows that change is inevitable, whether we like it or not.
The Death card has a tendency to frighten many people because of its association with death itself, but once you get down to the meaning of the card, there is nothing to fear. Death and transformation are a part of life; everyone must go through them. As a Major Arcana card, Death represents sweeping change that we have little control over. We have two choices when it comes to death; we can ride the waves of change or we can resist. Whichever way we choose, change is coming so what we should focus on is how we can make this transformation easiest on ourselves.
This represents the life of Scorpio in general. Scorpio must die and be reborn many times throughout life in order to reach the highest point of their existence. Much of the theme of Scorpio is in learning to surrender to what is, rather than fighting back. This is not a sign of weakness, but rather an acceptance that the universe is looking after them, and that if they should trust in the universal forces, their trust will not be misplaced.
For who has control over death itself? None of us do. Not the richest, the most powerful, the most pious or the most devilish. In the eyes of death, we are all the same. The Death card represents the pain that Scorpio must endure; the skeletal figure represents what remains after death, a metaphor of our own survival once we undergo the necessary transformation.
More than any other sign and any other card, both Scorpio and Death highlight the necessity to endure pain and suffering in order that darkness may be transformed into light.
Scorpio in the Minor Arcana: 5 of Cups
In the Minor Arcana, the 5 of Cups represents Scorpio.
This is another card that is not always the most welcome in a Tarot spread. It often shows a grieving figure standing over spilled cups. The 5 of Cups represents grief, sorrow, regret and some kind of bereavement. The lesson of the 5 of Cups is a harsh one, but it is a lesson nonetheless.
If the person in the 5 of Cups should only look up from his devastation, he will see that two cups remain standing. Like Scorpio who must go through dark nights of the soul but retain that glimmer of hope within, no matter how small it is, the 5 of Cups show that the two cups standing prove that all is not lost. The dark time will pass and the figure shall be even stronger from their experience.

Scorpio season can produce some great upheavals in our life that many of us would prefer not to go through. But understanding the true concept of death, which is one of transformation and regeneration, can help us ride the waves of change, rather than continually resist them. The Death card is always more likely to appear when we know change must come, but one thing or another forces us to remain as we are. It is the Universe’s way of kicking us into gear.
Realizing that Death is not something to fear, but instead an opportunity for greater and brighter things to come our way is the first step towards an absence of fear and a stronger sense of self, regardless of the situation.

November 12 brings a Full Moon in the sign of Taurus. Get ready to indulge in some nostalgia and your extravagant taste, because in this Earth sign, the emotional Moon will be perched in the zodiac sign ruled by none other than Venus herself.
To put it simply, it’s time to break out the crystal goblets and dress up for the cosmic ball. Full Moons are a very exciting time and the more informed we are about their unique energy each time, the more we can be open to the types of opportunities that often arise around this time.
The Sun will be in Scorpio for this Full Moon which means we have quite intense energy already at play. When you add the planet of romance Venus, which rules Taurus, into the mix, well it’s sure to be a time of heightened attraction!
Taurus is practical and serious but they are mostly serious about keeping a healthy balance between labor and love. Taurus is also all about latching on whereas Scorpio is all about letting go. Tug and push. This is the crux of this Full Moon’s message for you. What in your life is tearing you down? What isn’t making you feel good about yourself? Figure out what’s stopping you from not only growing up, but showing up – and fix it.
How to Indulge in the Lavish Taurus Full Moon
For this Full Moon in Taurus, your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to get your sexy on. And when you do, wait for it. Those Full Moon wishes are closer than you think. How can you make the most of the Full Moon in Taurus this month? You can start getting ready right now!
Want to elevate things in love? This is the week to make some big moves! ALL of us will be feeling it, so don’t be surprised if someone else makes a move on you before you have a chance to even realize what is happening. And do enjoy. If ever you have been waiting for the astrological transit that can help you elevate your relationship status, this is the one. Full Moons always do, as they have a pre-existing relationship themselves with the New Moon that occurred 2 weeks prior. This Full Moon is in Taurus, but the New Moon was in sultry Scorpio, so we probably wanted to call in more passion.
What other intentions did you set during the New Moon in Scorpio two weeks ago? It’s time to see what beauty is going to blossom for you. Take a look back over the past few weeks and think about what you started in the way of projects or situations in your current relationships. What can you bring to fruition on these matters? Fine-tune, tweak, and complete those projects and conversations that need to be completed. What magic do you wish for under this Full Moon?
Prepare for a Wake-up Call
Full Moons illuminate. They shed light and provide information on matters that once perplexed you. Expect some of this to come up during this period. With this light, you will have more clarity on these matters than ever before. You will be able to see the imbalance in partnerships and where discord in relationships occurs. If you are in tune with your own authentic intentions, those that aren’t will soon be revealed. Preparing for this wake-up call now could save you some stress down the road.
Believe that it’s Happening – It’s Not Too Good to be True!
Expect to be experiencing a lot of really feel-good vibes under the Full Moon in Taurus. These are the kind that make you feel secure and comfortable in your experiences, whether that is in work or in love. Use the magic! Don’t question it! It’s there and it is happening for a reason, and doubting it will only make all of that ooey-gooey goodness disappear. Believe that all of these wonderful blessings are coming your way, and accept that you are WORTH it, and deserve the abundance of love and success that the Universe wants to offer you right now. Believe it, and embrace it, and watch the magic unfold.
Other Influences During the Taurus Full Moon:
We are experiencing the healing and sometimes persnickety effects of Mercury Retrograde in the sign of Scorpio. When Mercury, the planet of communication, is in the Water sign of Scorpio, we love to talk about our deep longings and feelings. When it is retrograde, we will often unearth the truth of some of the past, whether it’s secret feelings we held for someone, or pain we can finally let go of.
Reconnect with that spiritual practice that sustains you, whether that be church, yoga, prayer, meditation, or otherwise. This is so important because when we keep ourselves in an open line of communication with the Universe and our frequencies clear and positive, we aren’t as pulled towards self-destructive behaviors.
If you are a Taurus, you can expect some extra luck to come your way as your own energy which is familiar to you is amplified. Be sure to read your Taurus horoscope today and in the days right before and after the Full Moon check your Taurus daily horoscope to get your energy in line with the stars. If you know a Taurus, do them a favor, and send them their Taurus horoscope.

The ancient art of palmistry is one that has roots in Indian and Chinese Astrology and it is the ability to read one’s hands in order to discover more about one’s character and possibly predict aspects of their future.
In the Zhou Dynasty (roughly 3,000 years ago) palmistry was very popular in China. It was here that the distinction between reading the right palm and left palm was made, with one hand as dominant and another passive; the left palm represents the traits you were born with while the right palm represents your future and what happens to you when you grow older as well as, in some cases, how the traits in the right palm influence your future.
While the results of palm reading are different for everyone as we are all unique individuals, there are certain similarities that we may share based on the elements in our chart. This stands for Western Astrology, but also for Chinese Astrology. In fact, because palmistry has such a long history stemming from Ancient China, it has a strong connection with the Chinese Zodiac and the different animals and elements within it.
This especially rings true for the four different trines in the Chinese Zodiac. The trines are made up of three animals, all of whom share similar qualities and tend to be highly compatible. While these animals may not be the same element, they do share characteristics that represent their motivational drive, relationship needs, and overall life goals.
In palmistry, there are three main lines that are read on the hand: the life line, the head line and the heart line. There are also more minor lines that can be read, such as the marriage line, money line and child line.
What is the 1st Trine of the Chinese Zodiac?
The first trine of the Chinese Zodiac is made up of the Rat, Dragon and Monkey.
These animals are capable of great good or great evil; they are usually powerful leaders, though they are known for being unpredictable and in their most negative state they can become tyrannical dictators. Their energy is a strong one and it is common for them to have high ambitions.
Below are some explanations for the three different animals in the first trine and the palmistry correlations they share.
The Rat is governed by the water element which shows a strong emotional current. Their hands are often rectangular with long fingers. Though ruled by water, Rats are very methodical and logical, hence why they get on so well with the Dragon and Monkey. In palmistry, it is not uncommon to find a Rat with potent head lines as these people place much value on wisdom and knowledge. They can also be very creative when they choose to be. This is the type of water that is often kept under good control – a babbling brook as opposed to a tsunami. Rats typically have good control over their emotions and their emotions will often be a tool they use with their mind in control.
The Dragon is ruled by earth and this shows a strong, practical, down to earth nature. Dragons are high achievers and often have big plans; they think big and do not settle for any less. Their palms are often square with short fingers. They are hardworking and practical and have no time for nonsense. These people often have potent heart lines as they are very much governed by how events, situations and people make them feel. It is also common for them to have a secondary line running parallel with their life line as they have strong vitality.
The Monkey is ruled by the metal element and this is the element that does not feature in Western Astrology. Metal is an element of strength, control and a powerful disposition. These people are often self-reliant and highly ambitious in their endeavours. Monkeys will very often have many upward branches in their palms which shows they are ambitious with plenty lofty ideals; however, this can also mean that they struggle to stay focused on one task at a time and this is why they are such a good match with the Dragon and Rat, who can keep them focused and grounded.
Check back soon for palmistry for the second, third, and fourth trines.
Palmistry is a many-layered and fascinating form of divination. When paired with Chinese Astrology, it can provide greater insight into a person’s character and future. As with all forms of divination, it is important to remember that nothing is set in stone. Free will exists for a reason; we each have the ability to determine our own destiny, but we can certainly use Chinese Astrology, palmistry and other esoteric forms in order to help guide us through life.

This could involve writing, drawing, painting and sculpting; it could even include spending some time outdoors under the full moon and letting your imagination take you to magical places! Relaxation comes from going inwards at this time and nurturing your inner child.
Card 2: 5 of Wands
The 5 of Wands is typically a card of conflict and strife so this conflict could be internal or external. There may be people around me demanding too much time and attention which doesn’t provide me with the chance to relax; the conflict may be internal which could indicate misplaced guilt on my part if I don’t let myself relax. Addressing the obstacles is the best way to find a way around them.
Card 3: Death
This is an interesting card in this position and suggests that whatever I am supposed to focus on is something that will be entirely new. Not something I’d previously focused on but something that may well come out of the blue around the time that the moon is in Taurus! Keeping an eye out for signs or having an “A-ha!” moment is very much on the agenda and can indicate one door opening as another door closes.
Card 4: The Empress
A great card for overall energy – the Empress is a card of abundance and creativity. She suggests that the creative energies are powerful at this time. The Empress also represents sensual pleasure and urges me to enjoy the pleasures of life, taking time to sniff pleasing scents and enjoy delicious tastes. This is not a time for stress, but a time for allowing myself to enjoy the fruitful joys the earth permits.

The first thing most people notice about a Libra sign is that they are not like everyone else.
The friendly and charming personality of a Libra man is a part of what makes him stand out from others and a big part of what makes it so enjoyable to be around them. Libra men cherish their friendships, making them a loyal and nurturing person to have in your life. Today, we’re taking a closer look at this unique zodiac sign – and digging into what they are like in life, love and relationships.
Personality Characteristics of the Libra Man
Libra Men are Idealistic Revolutionaries
What sets a Libra man’s personality apart from other signs is their remarkable sense of personal responsibility to social justice. They have one of the most compassionate and determined personalities when it comes to creating harmony on local and global levels.
These men will put it all on the line for a good cause and seem to have endless ideas for solving human rights issues, criminal justice problems, or stopping discriminatory practices. Because they are so positive and quirky, some people may not see the knowledge of many topics they hold at the ready to swing hard at their opponent in a casual debate which they always take seriously.
They also have a strong moral compass, so although you need not have the same exact life views, they will look to see you have integrity. To continue learning about the unique traits that make Libra men great artists, writers, teachers, lawyers, confidants, healers, and musicians, read the Libra daily horoscope which will help you see how they think.
There is much excitement when you have the motivated and gregarious Libra man around. A Libra man has endless creativity, which can allow them to be very successful and attract attention if they can put their ideas into a plan.
They value other’s strengths and love collaboration with those who have other talents and skills. They help us bring meaning to life and their unwillingness to do things that have no meaning can help us all evaluate our own intentions.
Libra Men are Easy-going Dreamers
Getting along with a Libra man at first is the easiest thing in the world because they get along with just about everyone. When you get to know them more, it can be tricky because they do not operate on the same schedule or play by the same rules as everyone else.
They have both a bit of an addiction to having fun (never turning down the opportunity to socialize) and will also work into all hours of the night to help a friend with whatever is important to them. They are also an air sign, so they have an insatiable curiosity for knowledge and can get lost in topics learning every detail for days on end.
We know Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and art, which greatly affects the Libra traits male adults display in their lifestyle and even the way they approach eating. Libra men are deeply connected to the appreciation of beauty in all of its forms, whether it’s music, architecture, dance, food, or fine art. They hold more respect and awe for a work of art than an impressive bottom line in business.
While Libra characteristics male adults display can seem idealistic or even sometimes too big to be practical, they are also the intuitive dreamers that push society to bloom into colors we didn’t even know could exist. You will find one thing (that keeps you coming back for more) in the Libra personality male adults intrinsically carry is a deep sense of purpose and connection to humanity which propels them forward and inspires those around them.
The Libra Man in Love
What most of us are curious about is what this charming man is like in love relationships. It can be really challenging to date a Libra because they love people without putting up a stop sign so if you’re the jealous type, you might find it difficult. An important thing to know about Libra men in relationships is that you have to be willing to share his time with his large social circle.
If you can really embrace all the love they have to share with the world, you can create a more beautiful world together.
Some important characteristics of a Libra man in love is that they show their affection openly. They don’t hide their feelings or feel the need to hold back anything they feel for that matter. The Libra man in love is passionate, speaks their mind, and wants you to share in their thirst for a deeper connection to life often through nature, art, and meaningful bonds with friends.
While the Libra man will impress you with his ability to retain information, he may let you down when it comes to being there for you because he is subject to his own energy being a bit up and down. A Libra man in love struggles to maintain balance and often neglects an area of their life unconsciously causing some unexpected hardships. They love what they love and avoid what they don’t.
They also don’t know when to stop socializing and being immersed in groups of friends because they can lose sight of their personal identity feeling so welcomed and needed in a group.
Libra Men are Unique in Love & Life
A Libra man falls quickly for a big heart, a transparent communicator, and someone with a student-like approach to the deeper meaning of life. When a Libra man is in love, be patient with him, he will create memorable experiences and give you his undivided attention. Just don’t expect to be by yourselves all the time with his ‘the more the merrier attitude.’
He is a man who speaks his mind, so if you’re wondering how he feels, just ask.
Above all, a Libra man is greatly attracted to those with eccentric fashion and bold personal style. He needs to be able to express himself and will often have a unique and daring style of this own, that will make all lovers feel like they have to keep up. His personality can change just as fast as he changes his clothes, so if you’re wondering why he acts differently from one day to the next, read the Libra love horoscope.

Communication & Libra Compatibility
Libra Men Are Passionate Communicators
A Libra man communicates with a huge amount of information. They like to go into details when they explain concepts so get ready to learn about the world when they open their mouths. They have a beautiful way with words, stringing them together to make even mundane things sounds interesting.
A good starting point to engage a Libra man in conversation is a global issue or current event. They often keep their finger on the pulse of trends and want to know everything that’s going on to understand the world around them better. You can also talk about local groups or activist opportunities, which is like music to a Libra man’s ears.
You may feel like a Libra man is argumentative but they just enjoy a healthy debate and like to play the devil’s advocate to extract your opinions and hash out the truth. Don’t mistake their love for challenging information for rudeness because they don’t mean to assault you when they openly evaluate what you say or want you to explain yourself.
Hey, at least they are listening intently! Allow them to get their point across and don’t shut them down or tell them their ideas and feelings aren’t valid.
Who are Libra Men Compatible With?
Libra men are most compatible with other Libras, Aquarius, Gemini, and Sagittarius. They love candid and direct communication which these signs are known for. They experience intimacy through communication so you can focus on that even if your signs aren’t listed as ‘most compatible.’

Learn More About the Libra Man
Remember, a Libra man takes his personal freedom very, so it’s important to give him his space and let him explore as much as his heart desires. He is also very loyal to those he cares about, so there should be no fear of him wandering too far in his explorations.
The Libra man is always on a quest for knowledge and balance in some aspect, so being a friend means helping them in that discovery with both patience and compassion. They will always help you see the world in a more loving way, and they will inspire you to be a more kind and brave person.
In the end, all Libra men want is to see everyone as one family in which we are all happy and peaceful and they fight for this any chance they can.

The Scorpio season is upon us, meaning our lives are about to get more complicated, mysterious, in-depth, spiritual, passionate, and even dark. Scorpio energy is rich, intense, and a little bit edgy.
Many people will feel well-prepared and personally equipped to deal with the feelings that may come up during the Scorpio season – such as jealousy, secrecy, and envy – but many more of us may need the assistance of external energies to keep our heads above the engulfing Scorpio waters.
Furthermore, there are spiritual energies associated with the sign of Scorpio that plenty of people will wish to amplify and draw towards them; Scorpio season is an excellent time to dive into the mysteries and spiritual nature of life.
Scorpio Season & the Crystal Connection
Whether you’re looking to keep yourself relaxed and upbeat or trying to draw more of that enigmatic Scorpio energy near you, there’s a crystal out there to assist you.
Crystals work during every astrological season, but there are certain stones whose energy are practically buzzing with excitement during Scorpio’s reign. Keep reading to discover the perfect crystals to work with this Scorpio season.
Obsidian is a crystal that shares the same intensity as Scorpio’s vibes, but with a twist: this stone is known for its ability to cleanse the psychic sphere. We all need a psychic cleanse from time to time, and this is the perfect stone to use for that purpose. Everyone we encounter leaves a bit of their energy lingering near our aura, and sometimes our own negativity can stick around much longer than we’d like. If you feel your psychic energy needs purification, meditate with a piece of obsidian.
Obsidian can help bring attention to the darker aspects of your personality. It reminds us that we are all comprised of positive and negative, dark and light. While both sides are necessary, it can help tremendously to understand all parts of yourself.

Amethyst is a wonderful stone to work with during the Scorpio season due to its ability to soothe emotional wounds, help with addictive behaviors, and increase spiritual energy.
You might find yourself unearthing past hurts and upsets this time of the year due to Scorpio’s push to dig deeper. Amethyst can help you deal with the resulting emotions. If you need help regulating your feelings as you navigate older issues that need healing, amethyst can help immensely.
These feelings are also likely to urge us towards substances in an attempt to numb them. While it may seem like a glass of wine can’t hurt, it is important to face our emotional wounds head-on, and especially to avoid covering pain with alcohol or other substances. Amethyst has long been known for its ability to lessen addictive behaviors.
Finally, amethyst connects us to our spiritual center – a welcomed invitation as we encounter the mystical nature of Scorpio.

Scorpio energy contains mystery and secrecy. You may never truly feel like you know the Scorpios in your life, and that’s because there is a sense of keeping certain things hidden within the nature of this sign. However, while no one is required to share every single part of themselves with anyone, it is important that we learn to open up and let others in. When Scorpio energy is in full swing, you may feel the tendency to bottle your feelings up and try to let them sink.
Yet, try as you might, the bottled emotions will always rise to the surface eventually. It’s important to learn to let some of that out early on with people you trust, and aquamarine is just the stone to help you hit the release button.
Aquamarine encourages openness and improves communication skills, making it a little bit easier to let people see your vulnerable side. This stone reduces fear and helps you feel more balanced when opening up to others. It is especially well-known for improving the communication skills of those with a Scorpio Sun.
Malachite is a metaphysical stone with a connection to the spiritual realm. This crystal is especially useful when meditating or doing other introspective work. Malachite encourages grounding and balance and helps reduce the intensity of certain emotions.
Malachite is also a sensual stone, matching the sensual energy of Scorpio. It increases blood flow in the sex organs and is associated with the goddess of love, Aphrodite.
This crystal is associated with Pluto, the transformative ruling planet of the sign Scorpio. Pluto encourages us to explore deeper, more metaphysical concepts and observe the hidden world around us. It promotes transformation within and helps us develop our spiritual, inquisitive nature.
Malachite is also an excellent stone for cleansing the space of negative energy.
Labradorite perfectly embodies the mystical, magical nature of Scorpio. Quite literally known as the Stone of Magic, labradorite increases the energy of wonder and the supernatural. Scorpio is known for its curious nature and willingness to explore hidden realms, and labradorite is the perfect stepping-stone into these unknown realms.
Perfect for meditation and Tarot work, this crystal radiates with alchemical energy and is excellent for this Scorpio season.
Working with Crystals
The truth is, you don’t have to do much actual work when working with crystals. Their presence and energy work well on their own. However, there are many ways to incorporate crystals into your life.
Carry a crystal in your left pocket to absorb its energy or try infusing your drinking water with the power of your chosen crystal by soaking it for 30 minutes. (Remove before drinking.) You can meditate surrounded by your crystals or hold one in each hand. You can even simply place your favorite crystals around your home or office.
No matter how you choose to work with your stones, make sure you feel a sense of connection to yourself and your spirit.
And if you’re new to crystal healing and you aren’t sure where to start, check out this gorgeous Crystal Healing Collection – includes everything you need to start working with the powerful energy of crystals.

We are in the last two months of the year, and along with the advent of the holiday season, this time of year we also see a little change in direction when it comes to luck. That is because this time of year is the time that Jupiter comes out to play. Jupiter is the planet of luck and optimism, and journeys through one zodiac sign every 12 or 13 months or so. So when Jupiter changes signs, it changes the landscape of your luck for the year ahead, as Jupiter enters your houses and determines where to wave that magical and lucky wand.
These are the areas you are also going to feel most confident and optimistic about when Jupiter changes signs. Right now we are in that last month of Jupiter’s journey in lucky and adventurous Sagittarius. On December 2, Jupiter will leave the Mutable sign of the Fire signs Sagittarius and enter the Cardinal sign of the Earth signs Capricorn. So your luck will take on a new tone next month. As we work our way through November, soak up the last of this Jupiter in Sagittarius energy with these tips right here.

Jupiter in Sagittarius Themes
The themes of Jupiter in Sagittarius are exciting, adventurous, and a lot of happy optimism. Sagittarius is that friend you love to have around. They are always ready for a good time, and they don’t plan it. As the Mutable sign of the Fire signs, Sagittarius is all about being the flexible and fun friend, always up for a good adventure.
Jupiter is the big planet, the god of all gods, and known to be the happy and lucky planet. When you see Jupiter transits in your Daily Horoscopes, you’re going to be having a good day, most likely. It’s the “on top of the world” energy that makes you go shopping, go out to eat, or just play and have some fun. Or it sends you some vibes that good things are coming. Jupiter is also directly tied to karma. So that is why good days are “most likely.”
But Jupiter can also be a planet of excess on the other side of things. You might overeat, overspend, or go overboard on something because you feel just that carefree. You might sleep in, for example. Or spend too much time binging television.
With Jupiter in Sagittarius, we have picked up some luck in the adventurous side of life. It makes us feel good to be flexible and adventurous. You’ve probably picked up luck without having to do very much to get it. But that’s not Jupiter luck. That is your karma. Jupiter luck works when you work it. You have to work that good karma angle to reap the god Jupiter’s rewards.
Next month, on December 3, Jupiter will enter Capricorn and the lucky energy will take on a more serious tone. A hard-working one when Jupiter takes over in the Cardinal sign of the Earth signs Capricorn. But we aren’t there yet.
We have a few weeks left of this magical fiery lucky Jupiter transit, that is at home in the sign it rules, Sagittarius.
So how can you kick up some of that lucky magic for yourself before Jupiter changes signs? We’re so glad you asked.
Lucky Tips for Jupiter in Sagittarius
To harvest the last wisps of luck with Jupiter in Sagittarius over the next few weeks, check off a few of the things on this checklist. Remember, Jupiter luck only works if you work it, and you need to be following the Law of Attraction. Do that with these 5 tips and your next few weeks are going to feel magical.
• Try something new.
Whether that is a new restaurant or bungee jumping is up to you. Find that inner child spirit and just try something new. Anything. The key to making that Jupiter optimism multiply is to find that happy flow, but you have to jump-start the engine. Try something new.
• Connect today, to tomorrow.
What you are doing in your life matters. Find a way to connect what you are doing in your life now, to your dreams. And if your dreams don’t match what you are doing now, then add something to your daily routine, however small, to connect your today with tomorrow. Jupiter in Sagittarius optimism can extend past tomorrow when you do that.
Think big or go home. Have a dream to connect to today with. If you can see it, they will come. No dream is too big. Just dream. See it. See the success you want to be in this world. Jupiter is listening!
• Learn something.
Never ever think you know it all, as that is when complacency sets in. And when complacency sets in, you don’t grow. That is the definition of complacency. Learn something that is connected to one of your dreams.
• Stay open-minded.
Mutable sign Sagittarius rolls with it in all things. Flexibility and adaptability are key to this lucky tip. Roll with it. In all things. From politics at the water cooler to your lunch sandwich. It’s important to follow the laws of compassion and humanity in order to reach Jupiter’s magical luck. Sagittarius is well-loved because Sagittarius is generally not judgemental and open-minded. Be prepared to face the world without prejudice and accepting of all humans and their perspectives. That is when you grow, and when Jupiter gets very excited for you. You could be this close to your soul mate and not even know it. Be open-minded and you may see them better!

Welcome to the season of the Scorpio—that mysterious, enigmatic astrological sign that most of us find ourselves inexplicably drawn to. And as such, many of us may also be wondering what the world of astrological compatibility looks like for the Scorpio.
One thing to keep in mind when looking into any zodiac compatibility is that these methods generally focus on the Sun sign—a very important sign in the natal chart, but not at all the only sign to consider when exploring your potential compatibility with another person. For a truly in-depth look into the viability of a relationship from an astrological point of view, you’ll want to contact a professional astrologer and have them run a synastry report based on both of your natal charts.
With that in mind, it’s time to dive in and discover the most compatible signs for the charismatic Scorpio.
Scorpio Personality Traits
Before we explore Scorpio compatibility, it would be useful to take another look at the characteristics that make the Scorpio personality so unique.
Positive Scorpio aspects include:
Negative Scorpio aspects include:
Scorpio Love & Relationships Compatibility:
While any sign can technically vibe well with any other sign (especially depending on each partner’s surrounding chart), there are a few matches that tend to spark a passionate bonfire in the heart of the Scorpio.
Most Compatible Signs for Scorpio:
As a fellow Water sign, the Cancer may be the best match for the Scorpio due to the fact that these two will easily understand each other. Water signs have a deep connection to their emotional realm that doesn’t necessarily translate to every other element—Earth signs are more concerned with responsibility and duty, Fire signs are passionate and impulsive, and Air signs are deeply connected to their thoughts.
Cancers understand what it’s like to have emotions that exist so embedded within your veins, they acknowledge the need for emotional connection, and they sympathize with the Scorpio’s (selective) inability to let go of a grudge. While this pair will undoubtedly understand the emotional distresses or upsets of one another, it’s important to remain self-aware within this connection—there’s a good chance that both of you have a hard time forgiving. As long as communication remains open, this is an excellent match.
Pisces is another Water sign with a slightly dreamier demeanor—they like to keep their heads in the unicorn-soaked clouds of their own internal reality. A Pisces will excel at bringing out the creative forces of the Scorpio, helping them feel safe in the realm of self-expression. This pair would likely spend many romantic evenings exploring art and creative endeavors, or maybe even spending an evening at home enjoying each other’s company amidst some candlelight and a glass of wine.
Capricorns are patient and level-headed—an excellent match for the wild imagination that a Scorpio often possesses. Scorpios can be jealous by nature, but the cool and reserved nature of the Capricorn is confident and secure enough to thwart these fears while remaining devoted.
Least Compatible Signs for Scorpio:
Geminis are ruled by Air and spend a lot of time thinking; whereas the Scorpio is more active in decision-making, a Gemini might mull over their sandwich options for well over 45 minutes before landing on a BLT or a Turkey Club. Passionate Scorpios may feel frustrated or even overwhelmed by the amount of time it takes for a Gemini to get on board with a certain decision, action, or event.
Leos are the astrological Bell-of-the-Ball, which can easily grate on the equally enigmatic Scorpio’s nerves. It’s not that these two will necessarily battle for the attention of those around them, but internal resentment is possible within this union.
Like the Gemini, Libras are an Air sign—but their personality is so go-with-the-flow and love-your-neighbors that it may sometimes clash with a Scorpio’s sense of right and wrong. Scorpios are passionate about their feelings towards others and they aren’t afraid to speak up when they feel they’ve been slighted. On the other hand, Libras are forgiving and concerned with getting along with their peers—they’re much more likely to let a slight go unnoticed than the observant and somewhat righteous Scorpio. This pair may have disagreements about how others should handle discord or misunderstanding.
Romancing the Scorpio
What really matters in the end is how willing two people are to communicate with one another, regardless of their sign. But if you do find yourself lucky enough to catch the attention of the charismatic Scorpio, you should know that you’re in for a wonderful and mysterious trip on a river of depth and intrigue.

Happy birthday, Scorpios!

Venus just entered fiery Sagittarius on November 1 and stays in this adventurous sign until November 25. This is actually the second time this year that Venus is in Sagittarius! Lover Venus was also in Sagittarius from January 7 to February 3. And, both times, lucky Jupiter (who is also the natural ruling planet for Sagittarius), is with Venus in Sagittarius. That’s some super Sagittarius energy!
Venus and Jupiter are considered the most beneficial of the planets (called the benefics). These two planets like to keep things light and on the happy side. Earlier in the year, this led to some pleasant, lucky energy in love for all of the signs. Now, you get a second dose! Which is actually quite fitting considering Mercury is currently retrograde, and retrogrades are perfect opportunities for second chances.

What Venus in Sagittarius Feels Like
If you were born with Venus in Sagittarius, you know that this placement is one that loves adventure in love. This is a placement that can be difficult to pin down as it’s always looking for fun times and doesn’t want to feel held back at all. Once Venus in Sagittarius meets someone they want to stick with, keeping things interesting, exciting, and adventurous becomes a constant focus to keep the relationship strong.
While Venus is touring Sagittarius, we can all feel this way to a degree. You love an adventure, and love can be the greatest adventure!
Now that the second round has begun, you can focus on trying to take a second chance at a variety of things, including making love an adventure. If you’re in a relationship, you may want to go for a quick trip with your sweetie, or do something a little wild together like sky-diving or learning how to ride a motorcycle. This is not the time to keep things stale and boring. Shake it up a little bit!
If you’re single, you may actually have an easier time with your status. Sagittarius loves freedom and space, and you can use your freedom and space to do whatever you want without having someone to check in with. You may even meet someone while you’re having your own adventure.
Venus in Sagittarius for the Zodiac Signs
During this second round, while you’re pushed by Mercury retrograde and armed with some of Jupiter’s luck (and maybe increase that luck some more with some lucky crystals), here are some ideas for different things you can take another chance with:
Focus on an old idea of yours that you thought was too big for you to pursue. Now you can focus on it and realize that maybe it wasn’t so unrealistic! You can open up new avenues and find a different path. This can help prevent you from getting too wrapped up in any serious matters.
Focus on areas where intimacy can be improved in your relationships, and then spice things up by trying out new things with your loved ones. Doing something daring and fun together can help you grow closer, and help strengthen your connection again.
Reignite some fire in your relationships. Focus on the ones that have become a little stale, and pinpoint ways you can jazz it up. Try going on an adventure together and see how that improves your connection. Paying closer attention to them and to your relationship may also help.
Reignite the fire for the work you’re doing. This might mean making some changes with your work, pushing for something new, making some new demands, working with or for new people, and bringing some passion back. If you’re not loving it, find what you do love, as this may be a time to rediscover love and joy.
Focus on reconnecting to your heart. Make some time for the things you love to do and the people you love to be around, get back in touch with your inner child, and just let yourself have some fun (especially if it’s bold and daring). This can help you feel better emotionally as well, and keep you more centered.
Focus on strengthening your internal foundation. This may mean giving attention to something you need to work on or let go of, it may mean reconnecting with those who support you to make you feel nurtured, or it may mean letting yourself be bold in ways you haven’t before. Keep lines of communication open and flowing to help.
Give your ideas more of your attention. Think about the ones you’ve been passionate about but didn’t follow through with or didn’t have the time for, and focus on ways you can make it happen now. You can take a chance on yourself! Don’t let feelings of stuckness keep you from moving forward.
Focus on bringing stability and security to areas that have been a little chaotic and you’ve been struggling to calm down in the past. It should help if you’re grounded now, and take your time as you go along instead of rushing. Little things may pop up along the way, so don’t let that throw you off. Keep an eye on the big picture.
This is all about you, so you can focus on almost anything you want a second chance with. You can feel more excited and enthusiastic, and push for what you want. With the Mercury retrograde, just make sure you’re releasing enough to allow room for the new, and recharging yourself as needed.
Keep working on things behind the scenes for now, and work to take another shot at releasing something, letting go of something, or moving on from something. You’ve got big energy coming to end the year, and you want to go into it free from heavy baggage. If you’re questioning your dreams right now, just keep going.
You’ve probably been working on lots of different changes this year, so focus on one that didn’t work out or you haven’t had the chance to focus on yet. This can be the last shot of energy you have to make it happen and get started. You may need to alter your direction a little to get it moving.
Focus on taking another chance with one of your goals, and work on your plans for it. You can be practical with your approach yet also a little bold, and put yourself on the right path. You may want to give yourself a little bit of space while you’re working on it so you don’t feel too overwhelmed, and embrace some of the big ideas.
Whatever you take another chance with and whatever relationship you may focus on, make sure you do so with a lighter heart and an eye on opportunities for adventure. Jupiter leaves Sagittarius only 2 weeks after Venus does, so this is the last opportunity you’ll have to work with this energy.
Have fun on your own, have fun with loved ones, have fun with family and friends. Just try to have fun!

Both Tarot cards and journals work to help connect you to your subconscious and your spirit.
The art of working with the Tarot is that the cards can be utilized entirely on their own: you don’t technically need anything other than your favorite deck and a safe space to perform a reading. There are many tools available that can enhance any reading and help you build an even deeper relationship with the cards, one of the most effective ways is working with a personal Tarot journal.
They help you dive into the deeper realms of your being and discover the hidden treasures. Many people already use each of these spiritual, metaphysical tools separately, but there is magic to be found when using them together.
You’ll create a stronger bond with your deck, understand more about yourself, and boost your creativity.
Should You Record Your Tarot Readings?
Think of the feeling you get when you have just finished a particularly enlightening reading. It’s like the Universe has spoken directly to you and given you that illuminating piece of guidance that you really needed. It can be hard, however, to remember that feeling or the cards involved without documentation. Writing about your spread can help you remember everything about what made reading so special.
Keeping track of your readings can also help you understand the Tarot in more depth. Even very seasoned readers sometimes forget the meaning of a certain card, and there’s no shame in that. When you write a brief description of the cards and their personal or defined meanings after each reading, it helps solidify that information in your mind.
Another benefit of writing about your readings is that it can shed light on aspects you may have overlooked. Sometimes, even days after a reading, a piece of information may strike like a flash of lightning, giving you more insight into what a certain card was trying to convey. Taking a moment to jot down your thoughts and feelings about your readings will help stir up your senses and help your brain process the reading more clearly.
It also gives you a chance to decompress and talk about your feelings surrounding a situation or relationship the cards mention. You can also use your Tarot cards and readings as a journaling prompt when you’re not feeling inspired. Start with a brief reading, write about the cards you drew and what you think they mean, and see if your pen begins to flow more freely into a stream of consciousness. Amplify clarity while boosting your creativity.

Which Type of Journal Should I use with Tarot?
As a journal junkie myself, any excuse to procure and prepare a new journal is like a holiday. If you feel the same way, use this as an opportunity to find a shiny new notebook or break out that pretty journal you’ve been saving for a special occasion. This mystical Sacred Rune Journal would be a perfect journal for documenting readings. No matter what you choose, feel free to go crazy with decorations, stickers, collage, glitter—whatever makes it feel magical and inviting.
If you want to keep things simple, you can even use a composition notebook or any blank notepad you might have lying around the house. The only thing that matters is that it’s a journal that you will actually want to use.
What Should I Write About?
There are countless ways to use your Tarot journal, and you may choose to use one method or many. One of the easiest ways to get started is by writing down interpretations of the cards. You might pull a different card each day and write about that or start from The Fool and work your way through. Try drawing a small version of the card next to your description for reference or just for fun. If you have a printer at home, you could even print out small pictures to cut and paste each card.
You might try using your Tarot journal to document your favorite spreads or create your own. When you make your own spread, not only are you sparking your own creative fire, you can personalize your reading even further. Design a spread meant to answer specific questions or address issues that are personal to you. You can use your journal as a jumping-off point for your spreads by writing out your spread first and then performing a reading with them. Use the following pages to track future experiences using this spread.
Keeping track of each reading is a great way to discover patterns in your readings like which cards you draw most often and to chronicle your life in a new, unique way. If you date your readings, their meanings, and your feelings about them, you can keep track of not only your experiences with the Tarot but with your path.
You could section your journal off into categories like interpretations, readings, and spreads—perhaps including a section for creative writing or doodles. If you’re feeling nostalgic, draw an image of your favorite card and color it in with your favorite markers or crayons.
Which Deck Should I Use?
You can use any deck you’d like when working with your Tarot journal, and you may enjoy mixing it up from time to time. If you don’t have a deck and you’re looking for a place to start, try this beautiful Master Tarot Deck, which comes with 78 gorgeous cards and a guidebook.
Working with the Tarot is a sacred experience and it should feel right to you. With these ideas in mind, explore your own creative crevices and invite your creativity to unfold and blossom. If you’re having a relaxing, enlightening, or creative time, you’re doing it right.

It is overall a quiet week from the Universe with very few changes from the planets to report. This is a nice change of pace after an intense week last week where Mercury went retrograde, Venus entered Sagittarius, and a New Moon arrived.
This week we are working through some of the many changes that came into play or began trickling into our sphere as of last week. As the first full week of November opens up, we are looking ahead to seeing where those new beginnings can take us.
It helps this week to examine the new beginnings that we experienced last month and what changes they can lead us into for November. What new beginnings did you experience last month? Think of how you can make October’s changes grow into bigger ones this month. Using numerology tools such as our Free Daily Numerology Reading can help.
Review Changes in Your Numerology: Beneficial Thought: October Numerology Brings New Beginnings
This week, we have change-maker Pluto making some noise in our every day. Pluto is the planet that helps us to tear down the walls that are standing in our way. This requires personal power to identify what those walls are, and how to tear them down in constructive and healthy ways.
The unfortunate thing with Pluto is sometimes these opportunities of change present themselves, and we freak out and do nothing. The Fixed signs Scorpio, Leo, Taurus, and Aquarius, are the most susceptible to being resistant to change. With the Sun being in Fixed sign Scorpio right now, the climate from Universe is leading us all to be resistant to change.
But the changes this week that Pluto is bringing will be favorable, and it is important to be willing and ready to embrace those changes. Only then will we be able to use October’s new beginnings to help us grow and bring even more new chapters in our lives.
At the same time, these changes are going to lead to some intense and tiring days. Use divination tools and things such as chakra healing and meditation to help you find your happy place during intense moments this first full week of November.
Find your zen! And if you struggle with this, let us know and we will be happy to help. Namaste, lovelies!

Use the energy from Mars to pursue goals and follow Pluto’s cues to take down walls that are standing in your way. But you still must always remember to be kind, and this improves your karmic balance.

Moon: Aries – That little spark of passion you have needs to be unleashed.
Saturday, November 9
- Mercury in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn: This is overall a favorable transit and will bring some wonderful news your way. This news comes courtesy of communicatorMercury working with change-maker Pluto. News may take down some walls for you to rebuild in a brighter light, but you also may just be making some big changes in your life today. You may find that you make big decisions today under this influence, and may not at first realize their power potential. But you also may find yourself in a bit of a power struggle today after a conversation, or even during one, or when you receive some news. This transit is largely favorable though and occurring in Mercury retrograde, so this news could even slow things down for you. And that could be a good thing. It’s important to look at all change variables today with a fresh eye and as opportunities rather than stumbling blocks. Tools such as chakra pendulums work wonders on days like today.

Have you ever met an animal that was hyper like wind blowing through leaves? Perhaps you’ve met an aggressive animal that reminded you of a raging fire or a very slow-moving lovable pet that loved to sleep?
The elements of astrology are one way we can begin to understand why pets are each so unique in addition to the traits they inherit genetically. Certain breeds have certain tendencies and, the environment and early life experiences all shape their personalities just like humans.
Do Pets Have Zodiac Signs?
Have you ever wondered if the day your pet was born shapes their personality?
It may seem silly to ask this question but our pets affect our life so much and for some of us, we spend more time with our pets than our friends and family. Looking through the lens of astrology, we can understand what our pet feels like inside so we can better adjust to their energy just as we do with people. Just as you wouldn’t ask an outgoing hyper person to be alone all the time, you wouldn’t want to keep a naturally social dog cooped up.
Alternatively, just as you wouldn’t ask a shy and introverted person to be out and about a lot, the same goes for a naturally shy pet. Understanding their soul is something that many people never do, but it can prove very useful for them and for you.
Let’s try to understand these wonderful creatures based on their elements and then look at the specific traits of each sign. For those of you who have a pet, you know that even though they don’t speak words; they communicate a lot. This may help you unlock what they are trying to communicate to improve your relationship with them. This may also help you understand why you sometimes meet an animal and have to adopt them!
The Water Signs
These animals are sensitive, know how you’re feeling, moody, and cuddly. They don’t deal well with negative discipline.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
These pets cling to you and cry for no reason. They want to cuddle and can be a bit shy around new people. They need lots of love, affection, and are food motivated. They are affected by the energy of the home the most. This pet will love to nap. Your little Cancer friend is likely to be as sensitive as its human counterpart. Cancers love very deeply, and this pet probably looks at you as though you’re the only human that exists. They dislike being chastised, and might even go off to their own corner of the world to pout it out. They want your attention and they want it now!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
These pets are intense and have a one-track mind so they may be an escape artist or get into the treats. They are always in your business but make you feel loved. They will help you get through the tough times because they are tuned into your emotions. Do you seek loyalty in your pets? Then the Scorpio animal will win you over almost instantaneously. They love you dearly and their home even more so. This is not a pet who enjoys moving around from place to place. They enjoy their time spent alone, but will often seek you out when they want to express their love. Their charm and loyalty will pull at all of your heartstrings.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
This pet loves to be your constant companion, and they are likely a lap pet. They are playful and snugly and need human interaction. They will always try to cheer you up. This is another pet sign that includes a modicum of sensitivity and perhaps moodiness. They pick up on your mood, so be careful when you’re stewing and ranting as your furry friend can sense this and it will pain them. These animals may fall prey to impulse and indulge their curiosity in a manner that sometimes causes accidents for them, so keep an eye out when they’re on an adventure. This pet is likely to want to stay snuggled up with you all day.
The Fire Signs
These animals are loyal, energetic, temperamental, and confident. They may be jealous, possessive, or aggressive when untrained.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
This pet is always on the go, digging, playing with toys, and doing anything they can to get attention. They are moody and can get snippy but will quickly forget. They are dominant so they need an authoritative voice to train them. An Aries pet is likely to exhibit signs of bravery and leadership, often protecting the other, perhaps smaller, animals in the house—and even keeping a watchful eye on you. Aries pets want to be the boss, the alpha, and even their stride seems confident. They let you know when they want attention and typically enjoy quite a bit of independence. They might be more territorial than other animal signs, much like their human counterparts.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
This pet will go to great lengths to get your attention whether that means going through the trash, jumping on the furniture, or making noise. They are fun and love to play with other animals and people as long as they can be the boss. Like their Aries cousins, Leo pets tend to lead rather than follow. Think of the pride of a lion and remember that your little Leo friend possesses this level of confidence and determination. They are faithful to their owners, but they may become upset with you when you establish your dominance or scold them. This pet sign is particularly well-behaved and loving with children, so feel free to bring the little humans around.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
This is the pet that is always finding adventure and wanting to explore. They are good-natured but given the chance, they will dash outside. The pets who fall in the sign of Sagittarius are energetic and strong-willed. They can almost be seen as the dopey, fun-loving sign of the group. Sure, they may have trouble with their balance or even act goofy at times, but they make up for their clumsiness with their ability to love. They develop a fierce bond between themselves and their humans, so if you want adoration and love, this is the sign to look for.

The Air Signs
These are social animals marked by a friendly demeanor and scattered attention. They love new things and exploring new places.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
This curious and playful pet will keep you laughing and will seem to have a split personality. This is the pet that will get themselves stuck in a tree or eat things if given the chance. They need stimulation or playmates. These pets contain an almost endless well of energy, and they aren’t afraid to share it. These are the pets who demand attention and go to great lengths to please or entertain their master. They have a formidable charm that translates even to strangers; everyone loves this animal. Their curiosity may sometimes get the better of them, so try to keep an eye out when they’re off on their adventures.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
This sign is your best friend and a smart pet. They are constantly wanting to communicate with you and play. These little animals can be quite chatty, or they may have sharpened their nonverbal cues enough to show you want they want simply by body language. It sometimes feels as if the Libra pet can peer into your soul. This peculiar little creature can be very affectionate, yet equally persnickety. They are pretty much set in their ways and enjoy routine. These pets come into the world with a deserving, regal attitude.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
This sign has a streak of independence and seems a bit aloof but don’t be fooled by their attitude because they love just about everybody and are still one of the friendliest of pets. These perceptive pets understand you in an almost eerie way. Their gentle intuition seems to follow and anticipate your every mood. They are curious and adventurous, making this one of the easiest pet signs to groom – no attitude or scratches along the way! Like many of the signs we’ve explored today, this pet loves their snacks and should be monitored around food to avoid weight-based illnesses. This pet will always bring a smile to your face.
The Earth Signs
These signs need routine and don’t adapt easily to change. They are loyal, protective, and determined.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
This is the stubborn pet that will not budge on what they want. They do not give up easily and do not enjoy being told what to do either. Encourage them with treats and positive rewards. Taurus pets also are quite chill so their Humans must keep an eye on their behavior to make sure they don’t become too lazy. These pets take frequent naps and enjoy their daily snacks, maybe even too much at times. They simply want to enjoy their luxurious, yummy life. With this chill energy comes patience, this pet will be the kind to let you put costumes on them or pick them up with no stress, they just like being around you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
These pets don’t like to roll in the mud and stay in control of their environment. They feel safe when there is routine and predictable patterns to their day. They are very attached to their owners and tend to be shy around other animals and humans. Have you ever met a Virgo person who wasn’t orderly and neat? Virgo pets share the same love for cleanliness and may be found grooming themselves every chance they get, they also love a good brush or bath. This sign is representative of knowing oneself and one’s desires, and as such this can make for quite a demanding animal, perhaps more so than any other sign. Don’t fret, silly human, this pet will let you know what they want and when they want it, whether it be attention or supper.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
These pets can be overprotective because of their natural need to stay loyal and love to please their owners. They also need to get their energy out and feel productive so giving them tasks is important. Capricorn animals are often a bit of an alpha personality when they are young and more dignified as they age but their Capricorn wisdom shines through in their personality no matter what age. They enjoy napping, eating, and cleanliness. Like their Taurus cousin, their love for snacks can prove problematic at an older age, so force some exercise upon this fun-loving pet. They’re peaceful and pleasant pets to have around.
Animal & Owner Compatibility
What we really want to know though is how we can get along with our pet and that is where understanding your sign and how it relates to theirs is important. If your animal was born on the cusp of two signs, then it will have the personality of both signs.
You may be able to think back and remember pets you really bonded with and others that you had trouble getting along with. When it comes to the animal kingdom, the compatibility of astrology still applies.
Don’t think that if astrology says you and your pet are not compatible, that your relationship is doomed or that you won’t have issues if you are compatible. Compatibility is meant to help you understand how you can fit together, what areas you can find common ground, and how to respond better to each other.
For the Air signs…
- Aquarius gets along best with Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aries.
- Gemini gets along best with Aquarius, Libra, Aries, and Leo.

Many of us don’t know the time of birth of our furry friends so pulling a full chart may be tough and we rarely know the location which pulling the Moon sign would require. However, if you can make an accurate approximation, the Moon sign can give you great insight into the emotional needs of your pet so you can give them the TLC they really need.
Perhaps this could help you if you’re thinking of becoming a pet owner and wanting a certain energy level that matches yours or will inspire you to be more active. Now when your dog avoids large crowds or your cat runs toward the window every time a bird flies by, you can at least have a better understanding as to why.
If you don’t know your pet’s birthday, you can still take a good guess and pay attention to how the astrological events affect them. For example, they may be tired and snugly when the Moon is in a Water sign or full of life and energetic when the Moon is in a Fire sign. They may be emotional, moody, or even stubborn just like us based on the Moon so keep an eye out for how their mood shifts with the Moon and it may just help you understand astrology better!
It may be fun to look up your pet’s Chinese Zodiac sign or numerology as well. Keep in mind the Chinese new year is not the same date as the western new year. Perhaps there is a crystal that would help your dog based on their zodiac sign. They do make adorable crystal pet collar charms. Finally, don’t forget to look up your pet’s daily horoscope.

It’s that exciting time of the week where somewhere in the far-flung corners of the Universe one of our beloved planets has decided to provide some new and wonderful energies for us.
On November 1st, we have Venus entering Sagittarius!
So, what does this mean? As the planet of love and beauty, Venus makes herself known throughout the signs and impacts our relationships with others and self-image and love for oneself. Having just moved out of the intense Scorpio, Venus in Sagittarius allows a little more buoyancy. In Venus in Scorpio, relationships are often very fixed and dedicated entirely to one person or thing; with Venus in Sagittarius, we have more of a ‘universal’ love.
This can manifest in pondering our relationships with the wider world and wondering what our own role in it is. This can also lead to greater compassion and empathy with others, the planet, and the animals. While Venus in Scorpio often presents complexities in the area of love, Venus in Sagittarius brings a more straightforward approach. We see what needs doing and we go out and do it; and with the fire energy of Sagittarius, we find ourselves more productive and with greater energy than usual.
Now comes the time to see how we can use a Tarot card reading to benefit us during this time. How can the energies of Venus in Sagittarius benefit us? We might know that this pairing creates opportunities for universal love, but how can we apply this to our practical and daily lives? Online Tarot can certainly provide us with insight, but looking at specific Tarot card meanings to see how they can shape our future can really provide us with some fabulous insight during Venus’ stint in this fire sign. So, without further ado, below is a 4-card Tarot reading designed to help you gain greater inspiration from this Venus in Sagittarius!

How can Venus in Sagittarius help me?
Shuffle cards while asking ‘How can Venus in Sagittarius help me?’
Lay out the 4-card spread, letting one card fall into each position.
Card 1: 2 of Cups
A relationship or friendship with another is my overall passion at this time. As we’re asking about Venus in Sagittarius and expansion, this card may be indicating that it’s time to move beyond the 2 of Cups – which usually indicates the beginning or early stages of a relationship – and move onto the 3 of Cups, which signifies a deeper connection.
Card 2: The High Priestess
This is an interesting card to get in the position of how I can nurture this passion. It indicates that it’s time to go ‘deeper’ with this relationship; that it may be time for some deep conversations or spending time together in a way that is helpful to us getting to know one another on a deeper level. It can also show us that exploring a range of passions we may allow us to share with the world at large and therefore, work together to take action on them.
Card 3: Queen of Swords
In this position, I would take the Queen of Swords to be either myself or the other person. Someone doesn’t want to let their guard down and get closer to the other. They may have been hurt in the past and are unwilling to open up too deeply for fear of being hurt again; The Queen of Swords is someone who uses her mind to deal with situations. She can come across as cold sometimes, even if she doesn’t mean to. This tells me that this can present an obstacle to nurturing this passion.
Card 4: The Moon
In the position representing my strengths, I take the Moon to mean that I have a strong imagination and I can find a way to work around these obstacles. The Moon is a card of enchantment, imagination, and fascination with the shadow side. A desire to dig deep and get to the heart of the matter can help me forge a closer bond with the object of my desire and overcome the obstacle of the Queen of Swords.
