Happy Birthday to our February Aquarians and Pisceans, and welcome to the season of love!
Do you use your tarot and oracle cards to help you approach your day, plan your year, or give you a heads up about certain events? I DO! Every month, along with reading my monthly horoscope, I draw a card to let me know the overall vibe I’ll be working with. Challenges I might face, where to draw inspiration, and good news to look forward to are all represented in the cards and stars.
Want to know what they’ve got in store for you? Scroll down to your sun sign and check out your message from the Herbcrafter’s Tarot!
The crystals in each photo are chosen to work with your sign this month, along with green calcite which works with the crown and heart chakras and increases success and manifestation.
