Tarotscope: Sagittarius Season


Friends and lovers, it’s that time of year again. On November 22, we’re officially in Sag season. What whaaaaat! Happy birthday to our fun, spicy little Sagittarius bbs out there. As a Pisces, I don't pretend to understand you guys even a little bit, but gosh I do love you. 

Sagittarius rules from November 22 to December 21—and according to our resident Tarot expert, Helen Schmidt, this is a time to focus on trust and faith. Oh, you don’t know Helen? Uhm, she's the best.

She pulls a Tarotscope every month for us. She’s also leading our LA event on December 12th “Tarot 101 x Warrior Facials,” which you should definitely come to. Helen is mad talented, both as a teacher and as a reader. Watching her work is totally entrancing—she chooses her words with intention and clarity, and they always ring true.

As the sun moves into a new sign, it presents an opportunity for us to examine the area of our lives that sign symbolizes. Sagittarius is all about faith and trust. This month, we ask: ‘How can we trust more in the Universe?’ Helen explains Sag season, what we can do to trust more in the Universe, and how to pull your own personalized Tarotscope this month.


Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign that seeks the truth. It roams around learning and interacting with the world so that it can get a better understanding of the higher purposes in life. This activates a philosophical approach to living that is centered around faith.

The sun moves into Sagittarius on November 22. This is our time work on faith. Faith opens up the one-on-one channel to the Universe. This is a time to strengthen our trust with the great Universe’s way.

How can we trust more in the Universe?

The 8 of Wands is a befitting card for this message. If you look closely, you will see the symbol of Mercury and Sagittarius. For you Astrology nerds, this card is the expression of Mercury in Sagittarius—this expression represents the need for intellectual stimulus in philosophy.


In order to trust more in the Universe during this season, we need to start by strengthening whatever practice we already use to communicate to the Universe, higher self, God, or whatever you want to name that power. So go buy those 10 books on Buddhism that you’ve got saved in your Amazon Prime cart, register for that 200-hour yoga teacher training you’ve had your eye on, or begin a 30-day meditation challenge. Deepening your practice will only make you more educated in what works for you and add another layer to your discoveries. You’ll be surprised and delighted by the breakthroughs that happen when you deepen your practice. The more you learn and know, the more you can fully trust. Knowledge begets faith.

DIY Sagittarius Season Card Pull 

Here’s how you can use Tarot (or Oracle) cards to see how you personally can trust more in the Universe.

  1. Journal about a person, situation, or project that is challenging your vibration. This is something that is making you feel hopeless or has negative energy around it.
  2. While you shuffle the cards think of who or what you wrote about. Fan the cards into a half moon shape.
  3. Ask your cards: What is the greater purpose of this challenging experience?
  4. Scan the cards. Pull the card that is grabbing your attention. It holds the answer.
