Aries (March 21st- April 20th)
Aries, there will be a small change that will seem chaotic or stressful to you, like maybe your favorite budtender leaving or your favorite strain disappearing, but don’t get too strung out over it. Instead, go with the flow and embrace this new change and break your old routine by trying something new like an edible or concentrate.
Fall Tarot Card: The Tower (distress, adversity, disgrace)
Taurus (April 21st- May 21st)
Taurus, now is the time to splurge on something you’ve always been curious about. Perhaps it is a bit more in price or THC content than you’re used to, but as long as you’re comfortable you should reach out for that special something. If you’ve never tried it, try getting a pearl and watching a spooky movie.
Fall Tarot Card: Three of Wands (effort, discovery, strength)
Gemini (May 22nd- June 21st)
Gemini, if you’ve been feeling stuck lately take a chance and trust the recommendation of your favorite stoner. Have they been raving about a certain strain? Does your budtender swear by this harvest’s Blue Dream? Now is the time to get out of your funk and find out what all the ruckus is about.
Fall Tarot Card: The Chariot (providence, triumph, chance)
Cancer (June 22nd- July 22nd)
Cancer, when you find yourself feeling dull and worn out from your usual 420 routine, consider taking T-break and cutting out or lower your THC consumption. Taking a T-break can help you ‘clear the fog’ you’ve been stuck in lately and heighten your next experience when you want to reintroduce THC again.
Fall Tarot Card: Knight of Wands (absence, departure, flight)
Leo (July 23rd- August 23rd)
Leo, when you want to treat yourself to something new, think about trying an activated beverage. These drinks can be a great way to experience the modern advances of the cannabis industry and if you’ve ever wondered what a canna-twist on drinks like lemonade, soda, and beer taste like, bring it up to your favorite budtender.
Fall Tarot Card: Temperance (moderation, frugality, economy)
Virgo (August 24th- September 22nd)
Virgo, remember that the transition from summer to fall is harder for others. If you’ve been feeling slightly depressed or sluggish, try a fruity sativa like Grapefruit. You can also try doing activities in sunlight and exercising, like smoking a joint after an autumn walk or hike.
Fall Tarot Card: Nine of Swords (disappointment, despair, sluggishness)
Libra (September 23rd- October 22nd)
Libra, if you are ready to try something stronger than your usual THC treat, maybe it’s time to try concentrates. In my experience, concentrates made from OG strains are usually easy to find in the fall time, but this can change from harvest to harvest, so ask your budtender what they recommend next time you stop in on Shatterday.
Fall Tarot Card: The Emperor (power, stability, reason)
Scorpio (October 23rd- November 21st)
Scorpio, this fall I recommend trying out more indicas. You’re in need of that calm, peaceful feeling that indicas are famous for producing. Now might also be an excellent time to get into making art or carving a jack-o-lantern. My personal favorite indicas have always been in the Kush family, mostly because there always seems to be fun combinations. Maybe you can try a few out and find a new favorite.
Fall Tarot Card: Four of Wands (harmony, peace, prosperity)
Sagittarius (November 22nd- December 21st)
Sagittarius, this season you should spend your time diversifying your cannabis palette. One easy way to do this is to take advantage of gram specials. Now is a good time for you to settle on a favorite dispensary, or at least take this as an excuse to branch out more in your consumption habits.
Fall Tarot Card: Three of Swords (removal, division, dispersion)
Capricorn (December 22nd- January 20th)
Capricorn, for this spooky season, I recommend experimenting with mild or low THC strains like R4 or Charlotte’s Web and focusing on mindfulness. But if you are thinking about trying more than one strain out this fall, try and keep a journal about your favorite CBD strains and how you interact with them.
Fall Tarot Card: Eight of Cups (mildness, joy, modesty)
Aquarius (January 21st- February 19th)
Aquarius, as someone who tends to be off in their own world, I would suggest at some point this season using a canna-bath bomb. Especially if you find your thoughts being more tangled than usual. Taking a nice canna-bath can give you time to mull things over and treat sore muscles.
Tarot Card: Ace of Swords (love, triumph, excessive)
Pisces (February 20th- March 20th)
Pisces, this fall is a time for you to return to your roots. For many of us, this means smoking a joint. This could also be a good time to go back to your first favorite strains if you’re feeling nostalgic. Whatever brings you back to your favorite moments, and if you haven’t learned yet, try rolling your own joints or carving your own apple pipe.
Fall Tarot Card: The Hierophant (tradition, alliance, goodness)
