Tea Leaf Astrologer
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You’ve seen the cymbal-banging monkey — eyes bulging while relentlessly slamming brass cups together. Virgos are wound tighter than most. And when you consider that they are, indeed, Earth signs, you begin to realize what an enigma these strong-willed, tragically tender creatures actually are. This month, astrologically, is a bit of a perfect storm for you, Virgo. But here’s a mantra that might help: I control nothing. Try repeating this silently to yourself throughout the day, especially when you feel the overwhelming desire to fix what’s not yet broken. There may be a gift in it for you.
Tea leaf “fortunes” for the rest of you:
Libra (September 23 – October 22) Perspective is everything. You’re only a fish out of water until the rain starts. Think about it.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) Spoiler alert: The world won’t end. It’s time to stop banking on it.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
There’s a Bill Withers’ song that comes to mind. You know the one. And you know just what to do.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) A ghost from the past wants your attention. But what do you want? Focus on that.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) Things are in motion this month. Like, warp speed. Try sitting still.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20) No need to reshuffle the deck. Just play the cards.
Aries (March 21 – April 19) Radical trust. You don’t have it. But do you actually want it?
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) You can’t have the sweetness without the sting. And you wouldn’t appreciate it otherwise.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Ever tried talking to the moon? Good. Now try listening.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) What is meant for you will come to you. You’ll be ready — but not a moment too soon.
Leo (July 23 – August 22) “No mud, no lotus.” You’ve heard that before, right? Keep the faith. PS
