Much like horoscopes, tarotscopes are a way to predict upcoming energy and how it can affect you. Whereas with the former, we look at the position of the planets in the sky to make predictions, tarotscopes are a divination tool based on the reading we see in the cards.

For so many of us, December is a month chock-full of stress. Between gift shopping, travel, a busy social calendar (when we’d often rather be in our cozy pajamas with a holiday movie marathon), hectic work schedules, and navigating the emotional toll of family over the holidays, there’s a lot going on. Step back. Check in with yourself. Let your tarotscopes reading look into the month as a whole and give you the main advice and vibe the tarot cards are seeing for your December.

Knowing when you should best express your energy and when you should store it in the reserves is so important during the holiday season (and Sagittarius season, for that matter). Your tarot reading can help you see where your energy will be this month—whether you need a self-care holiday or to focus on giving to others. Find your zodiac sign below, and see what the tarotscopes have in store for you.

Aries

Card: Strength

In December you are advised to stay strong. There could be some situations that require self-control, force, bravery, and in general the taming of a beast. We find the Strength card when someone must exert a lot of willpower to overcome a situation. As a fire sign, you have a tendency to rush into things and be impulsive. But this month, your advice is to control this fire, have some self-restraint, think about the big picture, and do what it takes to keep your affairs in check.

Taurus

Card: Ace of Wands (Reversed)

You could be feeling a little depleted this month. Maybe your energy level is not at its maximum, and that’s okay. That doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t have creative energy or won’t be enthusiastic about new ideas, situations, and beginnings—but expect some delays. These delays could be imposed on you or could be imposed by you. In any case, keep one foot on the brakes this month. Remember that a sense of urgency is usually a sign that you should actually slow down to see if you still feel that excitement in a few weeks. It’s could be a very good month to birth a new idea. But before you put things in motion, it’s important to spend some time inward so you can define what is it you want and how you’re going to go about it.

Gemini

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 9 of Pentacles (Reversed)

This month you’re asked to harness very independent energy. You have everything it takes to reach the abundance you seek—but perhaps you’re not so convinced of it. Or perhaps, you already achieved quite a bit of abundance for yourself. Whether you’re still reaching for the stars or are already bathing in the cosmic sauce, focus within, appreciate all of your blessings, define what it is that you seek, and cultivate the belief that you have all the resources within to achieve your desires for abundance and stability. Focus on yourself. Focus on manifesting.

Cancer

Card: 3 of Swords

December is a moment of truth for you—perhaps a harsh truth. This card is associated with heartbreak, but it doesn’t necessarily mean in your love life. Instead, it’s a card that expresses the need to speak your truth, receive truth, and accept the truth. Truth can at times be harsh. But would you rather bathe in illusions or see and accept things for what they are? This month, you don’t really have a choice. The truth will come to you in very direct ways. If you are grieving in any way, December is the time to really focus on mending your heart and accepting things for what they are, until the pain dissipates to leave space for more love to enter your heart.

Leo

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 5 of Wands (Reversed)

This month is about letting go of the need to compete, argue, and be right. Ask yourself: Would you rather be right or peaceful? Focus on letting go of ego-based behaviors so you can achieve inner peace and serenity. You might have to compete for some goals, but you can also expect competition to end this month. Make sure to check whether you’re in competition for something worthy of the energy or just for the sport. You could be experiencing some disagreements with others, and if so, most of them are due to a reluctance to see the other person’s point of view.

Virgo

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 9 of Swords (Reversed)

Worries are to be expected this month. But your worries are less connected to a specific situation and more connected to an overall state of internal anguish. Acquiring skills for your mental health is going to be important this month. Learn how to differentiate what’s a fact and what’s the story you build internally around these facts. Mental anguish is due to that story you tell yourself. Be in nature as much as you can and journal if you experience internal mental conflicts. Putting things on paper helps with discerning facts from your internal stories.

Libra

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: Wheel of Fortune

Destiny is knocking on your door this month, Libra. Life is made out of seasons, and you’re entering a brand-new season this month. Expect the unexpected, and expect to be surprised by unforeseen events. Don’t worry. Whatever event happens in your life this month is meant to help you break a cycle and enter a new, more fulfilling, and destined one. The universe has your back. You have nothing to do aside from welcoming new events with an open heart. The only possible downfall is to resist the changes or lack faith in a greater plan. Breathe—it’s done!

Scorpio

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: Judgment (Reversed)

You could be experiencing some self-doubts this month, which stem from your tendency to be judgmental toward yourself. Release your judgments, and focus on your needs. What is it that you need? Make your decisions accordingly, and have empathy for your mistakes (or what you perceive as mistakes). Now is a karmic time for you. This month, events will help you close or revisit some cycles. The past is likely to be knocking on your door in December. So, again: Try to release judgments and focus on what you need and whether your past has answers for your needs.

Sagittarius

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 5 of Pentacles

You could feel a little isolated this month. You may feel like no one can help you. Or you’re going through a spiritual hardship and feel that no one else could possibly understand you. This is a mental construct. Reach out for help, look around you, seek opportunities—people who can understand your conditions and concerns will offer you insights to help you out of a rut. You’re not alone, and you don’t have to do it all alone. If you experience some sense of existential dread, it will be temporary.

Capricorn

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: Queen of Pentacles (Reversed)

You’re called to reparent yourself this month. Treat yourself like a child: Are you hungry? Do you need more playtime? Do you need to cry and have someone listen to you? Be kind to yourself, be attentive to your needs, and provide for yourself whatever basic need you’re lacking. By being more disciplined with self-care and self-attention, you’ll be able to experience a greater sense of inner security and stronger roots. With this inner safety, you can expand and grow.

Aquarius

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/JENNA BRILLHART/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 8 of Swords

This month is asking you to release all the negative filters you have about yourself and life. If you feel trapped, remember: We’re never trapped, except by ourselves. Where is your thinking distorted? Where do you see things as black-and-white, and where are there tons of other possibilities you’re not considering? This month is also a very good time to free yourself mentally from the limitations you impose on yourself. Now is a good time to notice all the “can’ts,” “shoulds,” and “have-tos” in your language and choose more empowered words: “I can,” “I choose to.”

Pisces

JULIAN BIRCHMAN/ERICA WHYTE, HELLOGIGGLES

Card: 6 of Pentacles

This month is all about generosity and kindness for you, Pisces. If you give as much as you can, from the goodness of your heart, you’ll find that the universe will eventually pay you back a thousand times over. Focus on what you can give as opposed to what you can get—something you’re naturally pretty good at. It’s the perfect card for the holiday season. Give, in the limits of what you can do, and show love as much as you can. People might not be able to match or return your generosity, but you’ll elevate your energy by focusing on what you can give, and will feel the goodness in your heart.

Keep your tarotscopes reading in mind as you navigate your way through an often difficult month.
