2016 is (thankfully) coming to a close, and we're anxiously awaiting the arrival of the fresh, new year. I mean, there's no way it will be be worse, right?!? Don't worry, Hollywood top tarot reader Angie Banicki and S6 artist Kersten Schoene have got us covered and the good news is things seem to be looking up! While you wait for the last thirty days of 2016 to burn down to their dumpster-fire ashes, try to distract yourself by using this month as a time to put yourself in the best place possible before we step into 2017. Oh, and happy birthday all you lovely Sagitarii!
ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Influenced by the TEN OF CUPS
Love is showing itself to you in such a GRAND way this month, sweet Aries. The question is, are you really ready to go to that level? The cards show it's okay to let things move slowly. You are learning and seeing who you are based on what it feels like to get a taste of perfection. If you're single, this is a time to push yourself past some of those old patterns and fears and let someone see the parts of you that you may not even like to look at! If you're in relationship, let those talks go deeper and further. Admit to your partner what you need in order to feel bliss. Show them how much they mean to you. Take a risk and tell them that deep painful secret that has held you back just a little bit. This is time; you are so LOVABLE!
TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)
Influenced by the 4 of SWORDS
Take a break Taurus! You are known to be a patient sign and this is a time to tap into that grounded solid energy. Things might feel a little stuck for you at this time. But, do you know what's fun when you're stuck? Going on a trip! Get out of here; go away somewhere. Fly over an ocean and let yourself feel the energy of another culture, another country. Or maybe take up a new meditation and travel inside yourself by observing and listening to the inner you. Let yourself relax this holiday season!
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by SUN REVERSED
This is a time to look at where you are in life, Gemini. What isn't feeding your soul anymore? This full moon especially, I want you to listen to your heart. What needs to be released in order for you to go into 2017 with an open heart? This release could be a person, a job you are ready to move on from, or an attitude you've had regarding one or both. Once you listen to your heart and let go, you'll be ready to welcome in some pretty exciting changes in the new year. Just a little sneak peak into your future: the cards show the summer of 2017 as one of the best you've had YET! So let go of holding onto the past and brace yourself for some big happenings in the near future!
CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
Influenced by THE HERMIT REVERSED
Oh Cancer, you can't always make those changes happen on your own timing. As much as you think you want that big change (the move, the relationship, the career shift), you've got to reset your pushing mind. More is coming! This month, connect with your family and those you love. Connect with your heart! You are going to enjoy this year's holiday because all the pressure you've been putting on yourself will be forgotten with the fun you are having. Spread that joyful heart we all have always counted on you for! You bring so much happiness to everyone around you. The cards remind you to tap into that this month and you'll be feeling on top of the world. Be patient, the rest is coming!
LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)
Influenced by QUEEN OF PENTACLES REVERSED
Leo, this month is one of big career stuff for you! Get to it, but lower your expectations my friend. This is just the beginning and a sneak peek into some exciting times coming in the next year. Own all of it, the ups and downs, and keep working your ass off. You are blowing people's minds this month and it's a lot of work. Don't forget to take care of yourself too! If you are working overtime, treat yourself to a massage! There may also be a woman in your life who needs a little extra attention. You could be the one to boost her spirits, so be there and you'll feel good supporting someone.
VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Influenced by 5 OF SWORDS REVERSED
Oh Virgo, you are breaking open your heart this month. Don't ignore those who are reaching out try to help guide you into this new loving place. You are healing old wounds, mourning past loves, mending hurts that have held you back from engulfing the biggest of loves. Go dance this month! And don't be afraid to be alone with yourself. Take a solo road trip or maybe sneak away from the family over the holidays and go hike the nearest park. Feel the sun on your face and think of how much you have to be grateful for
LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Influenced by THE FOOL
One day at a time Libra! So many highs and lows this month. Your heart loves it though, because you are shining! Focus on the highs, but know you can handle anything right now. Your family is your emotional center this month; you are bursting with joy to be with those you love right now. Give all of that love to your family and friends! Romance may not be everything this month, but you don't care you are just loving, loving! Who cares that you didn't get that big promotion or lost out on the big deal? Not you! Because life just feels full and you love where you're at! Hold onto that feeling!
SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Influenced by THE CHARIOT
You have the bird's eye view this month Scorpio! You can see the world with magical glasses! You are soaring above the clouds dipping in to see how you are going to help change the world. Perhaps you can even help us understand how to best move forward with the state of our country. You are learning and helping others through your work this month, but this does mean you are going to have to sacrifice. Your love life is going to take the backseat of this flight, but you know you don't have a choice. And if you're in a relationship your partner will be understanding. We can't wait to see what you teach us!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)
Influenced by THE EMPRESS
You are creating this month! It may not feel like it, because you are feeling the struggle, but guess what? This is the struggle dreams are made of. Think of those great novels where you're like, geez did our hero REALLY have to go through all that?! Yup, but he/she lived to tell the great tale AND made this great example for the rest of us. You are the Jason Bourne this month. When you hit a wall at work, just think you could've hit a real wall and smashed your face, but instead you probably just feel like things didn't turn out exactly how you'd hoped. Don't forget that these things are becoming part of your story in an integral way that only your soul knows the ending to. Try to laugh and remember you're exactly where you're supposed to be! Let it bleed and be ready to show up for what's next.
CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)
Influenced by 8 OF PENTACLES REVERSED
Cap, you are working your booty off this week! And you feel a little uncertain of why; you can't quite see the next goal. Push the uncertainty aside and focus on what you do know. You have so many people rooting for you right now and they are all showing up to guide you into this new arena of your life, it just needs a little more time! As you maintain balance, it'll be exciting and you'll keep seeing little signs of what the future wants to bring to you! Don't try to go this alone, let those around you help! I picture you standing at the edge of a lake looking at where you're supposed to go not knowing how to get to the other side, and before you can figure anything out or turn back, all these hands are reaching out to pull you onto their boats. This month you are stepping up to the lake. Go listen to Shining Star to remind you what to do! THIS IS YOUR SONG FOR 2017!
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Influenced by 6 OF SWORDS
Aquarius, you can't see it but after the holidays things are going to come together exactly as they should. You may be feeling upset over some work defeats or life just sticking you with some unjust situations. The cards show things are going to play out in your favor. Time to let go this month and let it work itself out. Go enjoy the sunshine, if you can travel to a bright place, DO IT! Travel will feel good now! And if you can, write down your dreams this month. You are going to get some hints about your love life! Every Sunday this month try to go to bed with a notebook and pen next to you. Monday morning write down what comes to you. There's something in there for you!

You've really learned to trust this past year and this month feels like you're so much closer to understand what trust has taught you about yourself. You made it through tumultuous times and survived and you SHALL BE REWARDED! It's going to be a BIG 2017!! Enjoy closing out this year!
