Adrienne’s Monthly Tarotscope

To forecast the coming month, I draw a Major and Minor Arcana card for each sign and offer you my insights.
Hover over the cards to read their meaning.


Temperance (9 of Cups)

You are an impressive force who goes after what they want and commands attention doing so. All that action and passion makes you a formidable opponent in the moment, but sometimes what you think you want in the moment (to win, to be right, to get attention) isn’t all that important in the greater scheme of things. Sometimes, even in the heat of the moment, you need to remember to stay connected with your true heart’s desire. That one thing that would give your life meaning and purpose. Your greatest wish is possible, but it requires concerted effort toward moderation, patience, and discernment. Willpower and self-restraint may be two sides of the same coin, but it is when we blend these resouces that we find true balance. Self-restraint can be purposeful when working with the ego in order to make space for the Divine. It is within that space that our dreams are realized. This month, you will find harmony and connection through composure and balance of your conflicting desires.


Creating a balance through opposites.

Finding the middle ground.

Moderation. Compromise.

Blending of forces.

Emotional consideration.

9 of Cups

Wish card.

Overindulgence or hedonism.

Emotional stability, fulfillment, and happiness.

Avoiding worries and problems by concentrating on the simple pleasures.

Manifesting what the imagination has visualized.

Doing what you love and feeling satisfied with the process.

Wishful thinking leads to blinding idealism.


Wheel of Fortune (Ace of Cups)

If anyone can bear the tumultuous cycles of life in steady determination, it’s you. One minute you may be up, but eventually, you will come down. We are reminded that nothing can stay the same no matter how much control you believe you have. However, our cycles can also be activated by our own internal pursuits. When we align our intentions with our attention, we are able to spark movement that changes our lives. This month, a potent seed of love will enter your life. This may be a new lover, a newborn child, or even a creative project or idea that pops into your head. The important thing to remember when this type of energy comes your way is that it is you who must do something with it. Open yourself up to it, allow it to inspire you, and ultimately, integrate it and let it move you into action.

Wheel of Fortune

A new phase in life. Cycles of growth.

A goal has been set in motion.

Opportunity for success.

Ace of Cups

Sudden influences or changes that will enable new opportunities to emerge.

Longing; power of the heart.

New feelings possibly due to a relationship or an emotional encounter.

The birth of something connected to your heart: art, music, relationship or a child.

A sense of fulfillment, self-acceptance or self-love.


The Fool (3 of Cups)

Tis the season for connecting with family and friends and you shine in the social activity. A lot of times we fall into roles with the people we are close with; roles we may have grown out of long ago and never bothered to change our behavior accordingly. November asks that you take that step now. To fully own who you are today without the need for validation from the outside world. Allow yourself to laugh at your imperfections and enjoy every moment. It’s time to live fully in the present and not be influenced by the need for security. Believe it or not, you are surrounded by people who love and support you and are ready to witness who you are today.


Sudden influences or changes that will enable new opportunities to emerge.

Letting go of expectations and jumping into the unknown.

Guided by instinct, not logic.

3 of Cups

Fulfillment; a connection has been made.

The idea of love has come to fruition. Infatuation.

Celebrations such as weddings, parties, and the holiday get-together.

Feeling support from others about ideas or values.

A sublime feeling of fulfillment and gratification for life.


The Devil (King of Pentacles)

You have the sweetest nature and are always nurturing the people and projects you love. However, there’s a situation you’ve been willingly participating in that is holding you back in the material world. Sometimes what is familiar to us, no matter how painful and uncomfortable, is easier than stepping into one unknown by trying something different or new. These acts of bondage will hold us for as long as we are willing. November asks that you go deep with yourself and get to the heart of why you’re not fully stepping into your power as an ambitious, hard-working achiever who improves situations and manifests success. These transitions are painful, but absolutely necessary in order to step into our highest and wildest potential. It’s time to let go.


Self-imposed limitations.

Bondage through fear.

Projections that impair judgment.


Lack of self-awareness.

Dependency. Manipulation.

The pursuit of material pleasures.

King of Pentacles

(Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
An ambitious person who aspires to status by working hard and purposefully.

Gaining worldly achievement through self-discipline and ethical practices.

Using an appropriate measure of skill and guidance without going on a power trip.

Someone who has financial power over you i.e. boss, father, husband, or accountant.

If the King relates to a situation, it is the ability to perpetuate or improve an existing situation by using consistent and intentional action that is aligned with personal values.


The Lovers (4 of Pentacles)

Generosity is one of your most admirable qualities. You delight in showering your loved ones with attention, delectable dinners, exciting outings, and gifts. However, decisions made in life act as a mirror of what is perceived as valuable to us. It’s important to evaluate the motivation behind our choices and see what they say about who we are. As we approach the holidays, a time of expressing love and gratitude through social activity and gift giving, take note of what motivates your generosity. This month, you’re being asked to exert some control over your giving nature and own your personal power. Are you giving in an effort to receive validation and attention or are you grounded in your self-worth and giving to share the wealth so-to-speak?


Decisions that require a sacrifice.

Recognize the motivation for choice.

An important relationship.

Relationships are a reflection of us.

4 of Pentacles

Productivity; material security.

Owning your own personal power, energy, or vitality.

Clinging tightly to something or someone; if done excessively, this will prevent further growth.

Safeguarding your current holdings will prevent further incentive and result in stagnation.

Selfishness, greed, or possessiveness. Control issues.


The Hierophant (4 of Wands)

We all go through periods when we question life. Dancing with philosophy and searching for purpose rather than answers. Now is just one of those confusing moments for you. Sometimes a period of self-reflection will provide the guidance we need, other times we seek the advice of a teacher, mentor, or spiritual guide. Either way, it is the symbols more than the words that you should draw your attention to right now. This month, you will come into new knowledge and understanding. You are being asked to take the measures necessary to address this confusion within you. If you do, whether you go within or find guidance from someone else, you will be rewarded with the knowledge you receive and feel more grounded in your knowing. Your Self will rejoice.


Seeking answers through traditions and social structures, religion, and philosophy.

Higher learning.

Professional assistance.

Asking the questions that lead to revelations.

Letting go of limitations or escaping an unhappy situation.

Unexpected good fortune; promotion, inheritance, or possible birth.

Aspiring to fulfill all your potential.


High Priestess (2 of Pentacles)

If you want to develop your intuition or get in touch with your inner
guide, you need to become silent. There is so much chatter going on in your head that it is nearly impossible for anything subtle to penetrate. Busyness is another form of chatter. You run from here to there filling your time and mind with extras like future forecasting and holding on to the past. It’s no wonder you feel drained and disconnected. Imagine what it would feel like to be completely present and responsive, in touch with your inner voice, and unfettered by distractions? This state of being is possible with practice. No matter what happens this month, make an effort to remain present and open. Your intuition may surprise you. If you have to make a decision, be sure to sleep on it. Your dreams will reveal the way.

Things are not as they appear, look beyond the obvious.

Self-created oppression through lack of self–awareness.

Competitive forces at hand. Compromises needed to retain the integrity of the original vision.


Hermit (Knight of Cups)

Being alone is something not easily accepted. Most seek to belong by fitting into a crowd, being part of a community, a family, a relationship anything that protects from feeling alone. Yet aloneness persists despite belonging to these relationships, even rousing feelings of doubt or questions like “what’s wrong with me?” One of the great lessons of life is that you must become comfortable with yourself to be fully comfortable with others. In your state of aloneness, you discover the state of all-oneness. The deepest and most healthy relationships are those that mirror back the beauty of who you are, not who you need to be. Find comfort in being, spend quality time with yourself by showering attention on your talents. thoughts, and feelings. The only cure to loneliness is solitude.


Solitude. Wisdom through self-analysis.

Waiting. More internal activity than outer.

A loneliness that leads to a deeper understanding.

Sharing your experiences with others.

Knight of Cups

A time in which feelings and perceptions are used for a relationship or an artistic creation.

A rival in love. Fighting for an ideal.

Difficulty with commitment. In love with love.


Justice (6 of Wands)

Optimism is a mindset that adds color to life just like equanimity is an
attitude that embraces all of what’s in it. If you want to feel happiness, joy, balance, peace, confidence, you need to be those things. In search, something is the unspoken confession that you are without it. An ocean of feeling already exists within you, perhaps latent or hidden, but there. So, if you desire joy, you must practice living with joy. This practice can be done by giving, sharing, and inspiring others. Offer a word of encouragement or praise to someone around you and watch how their face lights up with joy. Rather than avoid the chaos of your work or home life, find a place of peace within yourself. No one has the power to make you feel anything. Be honest about your feelings, good and bad. Your attitude about life is what you make it. When you consciously live according to your own aspirations, then not even a bump in the road will deter you from your destiny.


An honest evaluation of self. Judgments made through analysis.

Following your own code of ethics without definitions of right and wrong.

Adjustment necessary for balance.

Impartial observations and personal accountability.

Receiving acknowledgment and validation for past efforts; a moment of glory.

Fulfillment of hopes and wishes; victory is assured.

Great satisfaction in a career. Confidence that you are on the right path.

Acclaim from others because of success in some area of life.

Possible promotion or prize from creative enterprise.

Success here ignites your passion to continue seeking achievement.


World (Ace of Pentacles)

Manifestation and wholeness go hand-in-hand this month as your personal and professional goals become realized. What’s so special about this time is that you will see concrete effects. Maybe in the form of money, property, a birth or marriage or new job. This is a celebratory time in which you attend to the next stage in your journey. That said, you will need to complete, resolve, or find closure with what is ending. Like every new parent or spouse quickly learns, your independent days are over. A new job or house brings new responsibilities, different from those of the past. Those still in the midst of a project, you will stumble upon the needed resources to bring about success. This is an auspicious time to initiate new plans, make an investment or collect on an old one. Your energy is strong and prepared to work from conception to completion. Be sure to extend love and support to those in need. Love and fulfillment are meant to be shared with others. Grow your joy by sharing it with others. You have more than enough.


Closure or attainment of goals. Integration.

Overcoming obstacles through harmony.

Synthesis of many different ideas, things, or people.


Birth or Marriage.

Ace of Pentacles

Ambition; power of the body.

New stable situation. Opportunity to give tangible expression to talents in order to achieve something of value.

Fresh ambition toward material success.

Learning to use common sense or realism to solve dilemmas.

Possible accumulation of money through work or other means.


Tower (4 of Cups)

The expectation of comfort is dangerous when you apply it to a relationship because there is no guarantee that the other will live up to your hopes. Even worse, though, is the resignation that there is no one out there for you. It’s common to hear people say, “all the good ones are taken.” It’s also unfortunately common to become so self-protective after a bad relationship that you close yourself off emotionally and energetically from others. While your words might say, “I’m looking for a relationship,” your fears and apprehensions are keeping you trapped. Don’t act like you don’t care or pretend you’re happy being alone. The messages you’re sending out are confusing, at best. It’s likely that you’re resisting an opportunity for connection – maybe even sabotaging a current relationship. In any case, it’s time to really examine your beliefs about relationships and recognize what kind of energy you’re putting out. For those in unhealthy relationships, stop being the victim and either get out or admit your part and start over. Liberation is the key to good relationships. You must free yourself from your own baggage to be open to a good prospect.


Sudden influences or changes that will enable new opportunities to emerge.

The truth revealed through crisis.

Dismantling of ego constructs.

Dramatic changes in store.

4 of Cups

Doldrums; something taken for granted.

Discontent with what you have may cause brooding or imaginary worries.

Seeing only your point of view; you may need to re-assess your position.

Emotional dissatisfaction for no apparent reason, other than unreal expectations.

Feelings of apathy or resentment Turn within for answers.
