NUMINOUS TAROTSCOPES: JULY 2019

In our Numinous Tarotscopes for July 2019, Bess Matassa shares the card for your sign with both an audio and a written reading. What’s in the cards for you this month?

COLLECTIVE CARD FOR JULY 2019: Three of Cups

Where is the love? This seemingly simple question carries us through the watery astro energies of July, as we open up to all heart-shaped forms of human connection.

Forget your definitions of “true” love. Forgo your carefully constructed definitions of “healthy” and “toxic” when it comes to relationships. The 3 of Cups asks us to simply let the heart want what it wants, for as long as it lasts. Ruled by shape-shifter Mercury in the emo sign of Cancer, this card calls for subtle adjustments to how we relate. Maybe this means stepping away from swiping left to spend more time in solitude. Maybe it means catching a stranger’s gaze on the street and holding it steady. Or maybe it’s a raucous night with your soul family, swapping stories til dawn, content to feel truly seen.

Connected to the energy of the Empress, the Tarot’s 3 cards herald an unstoppable unfolding, moving us past shame and into the sensual aliveness of what just feels good to touch and taste. This July, there are as many shades and flavors of love as there are lovers to feel it.

Read on for the card, mantra, and cosmic audio reading for your sign …

CANCER OR CANCER RISING: Two of Wands

“I’m hungry like the crab and I’m ready to ride the tide.”

After June’s invitations to step out from the crowd, you’re entering July ready to thrust the force of your feelings into the world without regret. Consider the inevitable momentum that’s building in some area of your life right now. Feel the push of your hips. The tensing of your muscles in eager anticipation. Ruled by mojo-driven Mars in the sparky sign of Aries, the 2 of Wands message is clean, clear, and directional. What’s appearing on the horizon like a delicious target? With a pair of potent Eclipses along your personal astro axis this month, there’s an all-or-nothing energy available to you, as you awaken your inner huntress and bee-line towards your next meal. Trust that the world is truly your oyster bar, and that if you’re hungry for it, it’s high time to reach out and grab it.

LEO OR LEO RISING: The Emperor

“Standing my ground feels like second skin.”

Dig in Leo. Widen your legs and arms and embrace this as your land. After June’s invitations to pair your fire with earth, there’s a deeply settled quality to July. The Emperor wants us to claim our right to be here with naturalness and ease. To walk this earth like our incarnations were not accidental. What turf do you feel like you don’t even have to claim? This could be a literal space, or an energetic domain that you just organically possess. With Mercury retrograde rolling through your sign and the Cancer Sun igniting your arena of soul security, you’re being asked to look past external accolades and consider where you simply feel safe in your own skin. Surround yourself with the people and projects that feel like your natural element. Moving through your life should be as easy breezy as breathing.

VIRGO OR VIRGO RISING: 10 of Wands

“Saying I’ve had enough creates more serenity.”

After June’s subtle shifts in consciousness, you’re poised to break major patterns in July, and this starts by laying down your weapons, Virgo. Where have you quite literally had “enough?” The 10 of Wands is the saturation point of fire. The level we hit with taking action where we just “can’t even” anymore. What if this prospect could feel like the aftermath of a really incredible orgasm, rather than a failure? You’ve reached the pinnacle. You’ve sweated it out. And now you get to lie back in your bed and bask. With the futuristic area of your chart activated by this month’s astro energies, you’re ready to roll differently, without your sometimes endless need to tweak and refine. Consider where you might be able to mine support and let someone else clean the dishes. Let the sense of enoughness taste like polishing off a completely satisfying meal. Lick your chops and curl up to sleep.

LIBRA OR LIBRA RISING: 2 of Pentacles Rx

“When I move towards what’s blooming, the rest falls away.”

June dropped you into the driver’s seat, Libra, asking you to take greater ownership over your decision-making and release from the steely grip of others’ agendas. And July invites you to make good on the promise of your own prerogative, starting to step out into the world towards the lush greenery that’s begging for your attention. The 2 of Pentacles can sometimes feel like a little death, as we’re invited to release and refocus, letting what we can’t carry any more slip away from our hands. But rather than mourn the loss of whatever’s receding, how can you bring your full gaze to what’s blooming, Libra? Put on your horse blinders and turn down the noise. Zoom in to what’s pushing through the soil. With Cancer Season energies activating the most public part of your chart, there’s no messing around right now, sweet one. Consider every move you make to be a part of your emerging legacy, and select bold choices you’d be willing to back as a permanent part of your bio.

SCORPIO OR SCORPIO RISING: The King of Wands

“Ready or not, I’m ready to unleash it.”

June awakened the exuberance of your fire, Scorpio, asking you to embrace your strut and let your whole life feel looser and more libidinous. With the King of Wands guiding you into July, there’s a rallying cry energy that’s lighting up your cells and asking you to take this libido to the next level. Drop the analysis. Release the maybes. Take a moment to remember a time when you “just did it.” Maybe it was an emergency where you had to rise to the occasion. Or a delicious risk that you bungee-jumped into just for the sheer joyousness. That energy is available to you right now in some area of your life. This month’s watery Cancer vibes want to return you to the sweetness inside of your feeling force. Even in the midst of catharsis, there is a seed of creation, Scorpio. Let whatever wants to come up and out unleash itself on your world, reshaping the landscape and reaffirming your very right to feel alive.

SAGITTARIUS OR SAGITTARIUS RISING: The Wheel of Fortune

“Life gets wilder when I loosen my grip.”

You’ve been moving through some watery energies this year, Sag, learning to love up on your lovability, and spend time in the inner sanctum of your heart without having to constantly chase the next fire. And after June’s call to more deeply consider where you’re putting your passions, July invites you to get low to the ground, content to let the Sun rise and fall of its own accord. This means release, Sag. This means actually believing in the magic and mystery you so often feel in the moments of formlessness when you drop the agenda and let yourself fly. The Wheel of Fortune is a roll and a turn. It’s an act of profound faith when we say yes to letting our lives simply unfold without us having to stick our fingers in the spokes. With this month’s astro energies crowding your underground house of intimacy and intensity, you’re refining your relationship to control. Where could you shift into autopilot right now, Sag? Drop the urge to pedal and roll down the windows instead.

CAPRICORN OR CAPRICORN RISING: The Knight of Swords Rx

“Dropping into the flow helps me build new forms.”

June’s magic was major, Capricorn, as you learned to harness what was here and greet all kinds of weather with glee. After embracing your own brand of witchery, July’s invitation asks you to take this confidence in your crafting ability and carry it into a deeper kind of self-study. In the reversed position, the Knight of Swords sinks us beneath the buzz of the endlessly actionable head, and into subtler rhythms. You’re often given to divining how to insert yourself into existing structures, figuring out how you “fit” and rising to meet the role. But how could you let the inner actually shape the outer right now, Cappy? With Cancer energies activating your relationship axis, you’re recalibrating between form and flow, letting your sensitivities take the lead and take up some space. Rather than carefully constructing your sand castle, grain by grain, let your emo waters shape the shoreline, remembering that your own life answers to your very own call.

///

AQUARIUS OR AQUARIUS RISING: The Hierophant

“Deconstruction seeds the next creation.”

June found you diving into a pool of “me-first” medicine, as you learned to carefully interweave your capacity for contribution with closer attention to your own, sweet cravings. As July dawns, you’re asked to dig underneath the set agenda and trace the origins of your beliefs, embracing the credo that ‘the way you do one thing is the way you do everything.’ Connected to the sign of Taurus, the Hierophant is about claiming the right to our embodied beliefs, swapping book learning for the hard-earned personal philosophy of the open road. Where could you dive back into the fray, Aquarius? Where do you no longer need to be the careful teacher, keeping it all together? It’s a month to get messy and let yourself remain thoroughly in process, sidling up to the spontaneous awakenings that occur through street smarts. As the current astrological energies crowd your house of undoing the laces, it’s time to freshen up your copy books and apprentice yourself to whatever lesson is here.

PISCES OR PISCES RISING: The Chariot

“Pushing past comfort awakens unexpected courage.”

June served up the stuff that dreams are made of, as you practiced focusing in on a distant vision and incubating it with tenderness. And now July’s energy is dropping you into open waters and teaching you how to swim. Before this sends you clamoring for a life jacket, take a moment to congratulate yourself on all your courage. Whether it’s a microscopic act of mojo or a triumphal marathon finish, something is coming to its glorious conclusion right now. The Chariot asks us to break out the banners and the bubbly water. But after the cup-runneth-over celebration, it’s time to push further, Pisces. Not out of a sense of “never enough,” but borne from the reality that as long as you live and breathe, your very cells are evolving. With cosmic energies dancing through your zone of exposure, where can you soften the fear that you won’t be able to sustain your shine? Challenge your concept of the success/failure binary and just choose the high dive that gets your blood pumping, Pisces. Push it, Pisces. Push it real good.

ARIES OR ARIES RISING: Ace of Wands

“Getting back to the basics feels boldly beautiful.”

In the words of country crooner Waylon Jennings, “maybe it’s time we got back to the basics of love,” Aries. After June’s invitation to befriend your whole feelings fam, you may find yourself spent, broken open and tender from the compassionate sensation that you deserve all the sweetness. July’s energy is here to wash you onto shore, blending all those soft feels with your original strength. The Aces are beautiful packages of their element, tied up with a bow and ready for opening. And in the Wands suit you’re being re-gifted your fire, Aries. What is returning to you right now? This could be a literal passion from the past that you’ve recently recovered, or a far more esoteric sense of knowing exactly what you have that can never be stolen. As Cancer Season energies activate the root system of your chart, you’re asked to lay down the welcome mat and invite yourself on home.

///

TAURUS OR TAURUS RISING: 4 of Pentacles

“Choosing what to absorb helps me find my center.”

If you dipped into last month’s Page of Cups energy, Taurus, you were able to soften the hard edges, remembering that you have the right to love again, even in the face of hurt. On the surface, July’s energy feels quite distinctive, as the 4 of Pentacles asks you to weather-proof your windows, creating energetic and emotional boundaries. But this exercise in hunkering down and drawing in isn’t about shutting anything out or playing it “safe.” Instead, it’s an opportunity to build integrity, noticing where energy leaks are leaving you spent, and sticking your skin back to your very bones. What is your center, Taurus? Maybe it’s an embodied practice of sweating it out to a thumping beat. Or an imagistic anchor that you use to focus when you’ve lost your bearings. With the current astro energies inundating your hard-packed earthy shores with water energy, you’re asked to consider exactly what you’re choosing to soak up.

GEMINI OR GEMINI RISING: 5 of Swords

“When I slip out of the spin, I slide into sweetness.”

Your birthday month of June invited you to loosen your hard concepts about love and widen your capacity for compassionate coupling, Gemstone. And as you step into July, you’re asked to build on this sense of renovated connection, as you explore how your partnerships and patterns of relating reflect exactly what you think about yourself. The 5 of Swords can send us into a bit of a spin, as we search for a “hit” from a situation that somehow always makes us feel “less than.” This is your opportunity to boldly interrupt that narrative, Gemini. You know exactly where this energy lives, whether it’s a person you keep expecting to treat you differently, or an internal storyline that shrinks you. You don’t need to strong arm yourself into immediate change, but just know that the 5s offer you the friction that makes evolution possible. With the current astro energies activating your house of worthiness, the time is ripe for using all that pressure to cut yourself into a brand new diamond.

Photo: Irina Iriser

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Bullseye.
Try to zero in on what really matters. All sorts of thoughts, feelings and emotions may be flying. Give yourself the truth you need to hear. If it’s difficult to access the truth, try a new approach. Whatever you do, don’t let yourself circle aimlessly. Zoom straight into the heart of what is important to you now. The result will be clarity and alignment.

Leo or Leo Rising
Holding onto a balloon and floating away.
You don’t have to work so hard. You don’t have to push yourself. Let yourself be carried. What would it feel like to stop straining and clawing? What if you could trust that your throne is secure? Did you ever learn to go with the flow? Teach yourself now. Trust yourself and find the current that can carry you toward your dreams.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
Expertly playing a piano.
Years of practice have added up. You are finding your groove. Now where will you take your craft? Often we feel was if there is so much more to learn, so much more to refine. Let go of perfection and bring your ideas, talents and skills to a larger audience. Allow yourself to feel inspired by other peoples’ input. It’s time to go public.

Libra or Libra Rising
You’re a jockey riding a racehorse.
After being pelted with wind and mud, you may feel like giving up. Instead, get into the sport of what you are doing in your career. You’re in the homestretch and the rules of the race may change before it’s finished. So keep riding and let yourself be surprised by the outcome. You can’t control everything, but you can choose a lane and stay on track.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Working on a Rubik’s cube.
You know how to dedicate yourself to something. Stay engaged. Keep chipping away at the issue even if you’re not sure how committed you feel. The most important thing is that you feel aligned with your values. If you do, you’ll find the stamina that you need. If you don’t, make minor adjustments.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Geese fly in a V-shape.
The thing to remember is that you are never alone. Start trusting that you are included. You don’t have to prove anything. Maybe it’s true that you’ve been denied or let down in the past. But right now you have a chance to start over emotionally and heal. It will take a load off your mind to trust your place in the world.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Sleeping in a cloud.
“A cloud” symbolizes water (emotion) that is held up in air (communication). “Sleeping” symbolically represents relaxation and restoration. This week the energy shows up in your relationship area. In relationship you need to relax so that you can find the right words to express your emotions. This communication will help you start fresh.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Making a collage.
You can fit the pieces together. Take a surprising new approach as you plan your day. It’s time to change things up when it comes to your daily chores, tasks, productivity and health. Add in new and unlikely elements to your schedule so that you create a whole new vision for your life. The magic is in the details.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
Playing in the sand.
It’s time to get messy and make masterful creations. This isn’t about perfection, the water will come and wash it all away. This is about being spontaneous. Being led by fun. Being instinctive. Begin to play and be surprised by your results. Take this approach with any issue you’re having, or in any area of life.

Aries or Aries Rising
A motorboat bounces against the waves.
Speed will help you get over and around any emotional swells. You may feel rather slow and sluggish. Do something quickly to snap yourself out of it. Once you’ve remembered how spontaneous you can be, you can return to your emotions and sit with them. Be very tender and gentle with yourself.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
A hamster in a wheel.
Your mind is racing. Make sure it’s gong somewhere. You can spin in circles or you can engage mentally in a way that feels curious, inspiring and invigorating. Mindfulness is key. Meditate to practice awareness. Follow your curiosity in a way that feels engaging instead of compulsive. And most of all, connect with friends.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
Gazing out over your vast empire.
Do you feel connected with what you are building? Find creative way to assess your resources and remember your successes. They are there. You do have them. Knowing that you have them will support you mentally. Connect to nature and get grounded. When you feel grounded and resourceful your self-worth amplifies.

NUMINOUS WEEKLY HOROSCOPES: JUNE 24—30

Our Numinous Weekly Horoscopes have the first cosmic symbol and reading for your sun and rising signs for Cancer Season 2019 from Sandy Sitron

Photo: Omair Khan

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Swimming laps with determination.
Slice through your emotions like a long distance swimmer. Feelings are not always easy. Swim in them with determination and you’ll find that you can make progress forward. This is not about bypassing your emotions, it’s about going through them. After awhile, this lap swim becomes very easy. Be bold.

Leo or Leo Rising
Jumping on a trampline.
Get out of your head and into your imagination. When you are on the ground, you are stuck in reality. When you leap you have entered a world where anything is possible. This symbol helps you remember to dream and play. You yearn to shake things up, so now is your chance. Begin in your imagination and soon reality will follow.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
A golden figure on a golden throne.
What is distracting you from your own worth and power? You are truly vibrant, but you might be noticing that quality in others instead of yourself. See yourself as a generous being who occupies a golden throne. You are magnanimous. Now get out of your own way and explore how you can be of service to the world.

Libra or Libra Rising
The eagle flies high above and sees everything.
Oh, the places you’ll go! It’s time for a little perspective to lift you up out of the drudgery. Use your resources to help you fashion your future. Tantalize yourself with dreams of what could be. Notice what boundaries you need to set as you journey toward your future self. Your goals and future visions can break you out of sadness, so look further afield.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
A rabbit searching for home.
Your home is close by. You may have forgotten your way temporarily, but you on track. To find your way home, think about your problem differently. Try to relax. Look for inspiration. Stay on task. Follow your heart and your instincts. Keep exploring. Use these guidelines for any problem you are encountering in your life.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Marshland at midnight.
Go out into the foggy bog, where life is amphibious. Nothing is certain. Your feelings are changeable. Your reality is unstable. But in this dreary in-between world you can get used to uncertainty. And when you are okay with the outside world being uncertain, you create a solid sense of self-worth.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Giraffes eat from the tree tops.
If what you really want is peace, then you need to stretch. Reach out farther than you usually do. Use your most creative thinking to find compromise that works for everyone. Sometimes you need to be more gentle. Sometimes you need to adapt and reach for higher ground. You can do this if you feel strong, and if you’re certain that compromise is appropriate.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Wallpaper patterns.
If you were like a wallpaper pattern, you would need to be orderly, organized and balanced. You would need to trust that small shapes make up the design of the whole. Is there some mundane life area that is asking for your attention? Maybe digestion or organization? With tenderness, make adjustments that help your overall life pattern feel more orderly.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
Monkeys playing in the trees.
Now is not the time for confusion or too many insecurities. There is a part of you that’s ready to play. There’s a part of you that can leave fear behind. Leap into the trees. Jump across seemingly impossible distances with ease. Let go of your fears and swing into fun. Joy, self-expression and community are themes to explore.

Aries or Aries Rising
Shells on the shore.
Shells are residue. They tell a story of a life lived. But they can also offer a home to new life. It’s time to reflect on the past and let it go. Look for security deep within yourself. You are ready for something new. Fresh ideas are forming under the surface of your experience. Release your grip on the past and float toward new shores.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
A player piano.
Mechanically play your song. A player piano is basically a computer that performs without anxiety, love or practice. Similarly, you can also methodically create, teach, write, talk and share. The more that you express, the easier it will be to understand what you need to learn. Get all of your ideas out there without overthinking it. Then you’ll know what to do next.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
Handfuls of candy.
No matter what else is going on, you can still contact sweetness. The way to do it is to remember gratitude. Use movement, breathing, music or aroma to connect body, mind and spirit. Then start your gratitude list. Give thanks to anything and everything. Feeling grateful is sweet like candy.

NUMINOUS WEEKLY HOROSCOPES: JUNE 17—23

Our Numinous Weekly Horoscopes have your Sagittarius Full Moon symbol and reading from Sandy Sitron. How is this lunation speaking to you?

Photo: Johny Goerend

Gemini or Gemini Rising
Rolling ocean waves.
The tide rolls in and out. Two directions. Notice whether you’re leaning toward another person or leaning back into yourself. You may need to give and take. Instead of becoming nauseous, get into the motion. Eventually, you’ll know where you stand in relationship to another person and in relationship to yourself. For now, find your rhythm and be honest.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Throwing confetti.
It’s fun to put the finishing touches on the party decor. But before you can add sparkles, you need to tune into more practical matters. Give yourself a good amount of space to process whatever is coming up. Be detail oriented and matter-of-fact. When you feel stable and grounded, you’ll know exactly how you can have fun without making a mess.

Leo or Leo Rising
Looking over the edge of a cliff.
Fear and exhilaration are wrapped into one. You’ve come so far on your ascent. Trust that your path continues to go up. Trust that you can be creative in all of the right ways. Fear runs alongside change and sometimes you have to put yourself out on the edge so that you can push into new territory. Keep climbing and keep creating.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
A new color.
Let yourself move past convention. You deserve a fresh start. You deserve to break up monotony. Bring your inner child along for the ride. Your inner child can inspire you with their zest for life. You can inspire yourself by seeing things in a new way. Show yourself as much love as possible. Paint your life with new colors.

Libra or Libra Rising
A fragrant tree in the desert.
You are looking for new solutions. The medicine you need is hiding all around you. Wake up to it. Arise from your mental slumber. Do things that give you more energy. After you feel replenished you can follow your nose. Your senses will lead you to the answers you are asking for. The answers are obvious and they’ve always been there.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
A hand grips onto a bannister.
You are holding on. You are also in movement. Slide your hand along the bannister for security, but don’t stop gliding up the stairs. You are learning to know your own stability. You are growing to love yourself. You are memorizing self-worth. All of that will help you stand tall. This is still a mysterious time, but what you can know for sure is that you are climbing steadily.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Your own musical anthem.
It’s time to go big. You are not small and so you can’t play small. Going big can be scary. Can you hear that your heart is singing you a song? It’s a new song that sounds like a marching band combined with a church choir. The song can build you up with its power and promise. Let your inner song guide you as you show your brilliance to the world.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
A colorful quilt.
Piece by piece, the boring fabric squares come together to create a work of art. You can find a way to transcend reality. The quilt represents transcendence. It can also represent comfort. Settle into a cozy nook and find a process (like meditation) that will help you move past your emotional blocks and connect with your higher self.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Lawn games.
There are times when you should indulge your scholarly side and be pragmatic. And there are times when you need to embrace your weird and join the party. There’s a lot that you can learn from other people. Go out and connect with them. Let it be fun. The more you connect to others, the easier it will be to connect with yourself.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
A garden made of candy.
Your rewards are blossoming. If you can trust yourself in your career, you’ll be able to harvest the sweetness that you deserve. It’s okay to feel any feelings that come up, even if they are confusing. Expansion is emotional. Let yourself feel what you need to feel. And meanwhile, inject your work with a sweet new philosophy or truth.

Aries or Aries Rising
The view from the plane.
A new perspective will help you feel energized. Connect to your values. These values can help you know that you are on track, and from there you can enjoy being your regular spontaneous self. If you are feeling skeptical, try to unpack where that comes from. Your current mode of operation should be optimism, so fly a little higher in the sky.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
Mining on the Moon.
It’s time to drill down into your emotional world. If you are feeling monotonous or resistant, ask yourself if there is a feeling that you are avoiding. And go even deeper…what do you need to release? What do you need to see that you aren’t seeing? Your emotions can give you golden information. Keep mining and processing.

NUMINOUS WEEKLY HOROSCOPES: JUNE 10—16

Our Numinous Weekly Horoscopes have this week’s symbol + reading for your sign from Sandy Sitron

Photo: Max Ostrozhinskiy

Gemini or Gemini Rising
A locomotive speeds along.
This moment is less about decision making and more about your energy level. If you’re feeling scattered, try to stay the course. Have you already put down railroad tracks by making key decisions? If so, it might make sense to keep chugging along. Do things that help you maintain a high level of energy so that you can push through.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Cotton balls.
It’s time to buffer. Pack yourself in a protective cushiony material. Make your life more soft and gentle. Does that mean that you need more space? Or time alone? Do you need to surround yourself with only the most caring of friends? Ask yourself what you need and be very self-accepting. You need kindness.

Leo or Leo Rising
A ferris wheel.
You can be more analytical than usual. Organize your thoughts so that you have a vision for the view you want to see when you reach the top of the ferris wheel. Realistically understand that there will be times when you at the bottom. Reframe this normal rhythm of life so that you are confident no matter what.

Virgo or Virgo Rising 
Power tools.
This is a powerful time as you can reach new levels in your work. If you want to maximize your impact, you might need to rev up those power tools. They are louder and a little more dangerous. When you do that you’ll be playing a new game. Can you give yourself permission to be all that you can be? It’s time.

Libra or Libra Rising
A bright light.
The sun cuts through the fog. A sudden change in light can be shocking. It’s time to clear away some of the foggy confusion, or stop getting caught up in all the details. Look up. Find your guiding light. What helps you feel purposeful and invigorated? Do those things. Find a new way forward by revisiting your goals.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Rain on the surface of the lake.
Everything in life has a ripple effect. Journal about all of the ripples that are affecting you now. Are they ripples of emotions from childhood? Or tiny waves of energy from your environment? The more you can feel, the more you can heal, so take off your armor and be present to what is happening.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Wild horses galloping.
When horses run in a herd, they are synchronized. They have to stick together. If you are feeling shut down in any way, remember your important relationships. Who do you trust to lead you in the right direction? You may need more spontaneous play and fun. Find your herd and run together.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Sprinkling seeds in a garden.
You don’t need to reinvent the wheel. There are certain practical things you can do to prepare for your desired outcomes. Seeds need space, water, nutrients and sunlight. You have a few basic needs too. Focus on your health and organization routines and you will reap the rewards when the time is right. It’s simple.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Balloons float above rooftops.
It’s time to forget about your worries and concerns. Lift off and get up above it all. You are taking things too personally and it’s holding you back from making the best contribution. What lights you up? What do you need to nerd out on? There are ideas and dreams that can get you out of your own head.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
A plane lands on a runway.
Arrive home to yourself. You have emotions that need to be tended to. You are being called upon for your innate generosity and benevolence. These are gifts that you need to share with the world. But before you can do that, you need to feel stable and emotionally secure. Come in for a landing and welcome yourself back home.

Aries or Aries Rising
Cutting down weeds.
Nurture your best ideas. You can be mentally sharp right now, which will make you a very good leader. But along the path of leadership you can encounter self-doubt. These thoughts are the weeds. They are ready to be removed. Get all of your best tools ready so that you can spend some time getting your thoughts focused.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
Skipping rope.
When you jump, you leave the ground and become airborne. In astrological terms earth is practicality and air is new ideas. It’s time to mix some new ideas up into your routines. Change it up. You will still be safe and secure. Notice if there’s anything in your life that is feeling stale and invigorate it with a slightly new approach.

NUMINOUS WEEKLY HOROSCOPES: JUNE 3—9

Your Numinous Weekly Horoscopes from Sandy Sitron have a symbol + reading to help you set your intentions with the Gemini New Moon …

Photo: Paul Gilmore

Gemini or Gemini Rising

The tallest plants in the garden.

Sorting silverware.
Do you really feel like you fit in? Or are you a spoon surrounded by forks? The first step is to stop judging yourself. Feel at home with who you are.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
Kindling for the fire.
Yes, you can say it all, do it all and be it all. You’re moving quickly. That’s appropriate and you can continue to shine. Hurl more wood on the fire and dance like a luminous flame. My only caution is that you check in with yourself during this activated time. Nourish your soul through conscious self-inquiry. That will help you burn bright.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Dipping doughnuts in coffee.
You may feel soggy or foggy and that’s okay. Release your attachment to any outcome and focus on the present moment. Where is the sweetness? If you can highlight some sweet sensation or thought, you’ll have everything you need. Dunk yourself into this liquid moment, and don’t worry about the future.

Leo or Leo Rising
Mirrors in the funhouse.
There’s always enough to go around. Scarcity is a distorted funhouse mirror. It’s time to examine your perception of reality and upgrade to a new way of thinking. Break the concave mirror with one swift kick, then race to the room with the infinity mirrors. Learn to see your worth magnified infinite times.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
Cryptic equations on the chalkboard.
The answer is right in front of you. There are clues around you that can help you understand how to position yourself in your career. You just need to find the right formula. Connect with a mentor who can help. Trust that your issues are solvable. The more that you study the puzzle, the more likely it is that you will unlock the answers.

Libra or Libra Rising
Research data.
This is all an experiment so collect the data objectively. The more you try to succeed the more times you will fail. So do both. Succeed and fail. Love your ability to fail with every cell of your being. It’s part of the expansion process. Try. Study the results. Try again. You are participating and progressing.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Walking under a waterfall.
A waterfall is powerful. The force of the flow could be crushing. Put yourself through the full force of your emotions. When you finally make it through to the other side, you’ll find that something has been healed and cleansed. This emotional expression will buff your hard edges and smooth things out.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
A squirrel eating nuts.
Simplify. Especially when it comes to your relationships. Squirrels seem single-minded as they search for nuts all day long. In your conversations you need to show up knowing what you want and then follow through. Other people will try to make things complicated. You need to keep it simple.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Every “i” dotted and every “t” crossed.
Let yourself off the hook. You don’t have to get everything right. The urge to improve every facet of your life is overwhelming. Instead of getting caught up in perfectionism, take a step back. If you try to fit everything into a box you’ll become overwhelmed. Be judicious and work on one thing at a time.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
An airplane pulls a sign.
Show up for yourself in a big way. What is the grand gesture you need to make for yourself? Could you write a love note to yourself in the sky, for all to see? Your inner child needs to know you care. Make this self-love moment playful and over the top. Set a new standard that reminds you how truly valued you are.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
Throw a rock into a lake.
Find a way to symbolically release your conscious and subconscious burdens. Some of them you’ve picked up recently. Others you’ve been carrying since childhood. These burdens haven’t made you more responsible, they’ve merely taken up energy. Use ritual to release them. Create a ceremony and actively shed those old burdens.

Aries or Aries Rising
A boomerang.
Every time you spin out, return to where you started. This refers to your thought patterns. The mind is active. Find a way to make use of this mentally activated time without getting overwhelmed by it. Meditate to make more mental space. When you get lost in your thoughts, return to what you know is true.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
Give the dog a bone.
This could be a time for rewards. This could be a sensual time filled with enjoyment. Give yourself a treat that you can truly relish. If you want this feeling, you’ll have to invest in it and make it happen. If you don’t make the effort to enjoy, you’ll miss the treat. Slow down and enjoy your senses of sight, smell, taste and touch.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
Blackberry bushes.
Patience is needed. The fruit is there, just within arms reach. And you must navigate the thorns to retrieve it. If you go too fast you’ll come out empty handed and broken. So be deliberate and go luxuriously slowly. The abundance you are looking for is all around you, just be strategic and keep your eye on the prize.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Coral reef.
You can’t chart a straight line through a coral reef. You need to swim through nooks and crannies. The path is organic and indirect. You might find a small cave you would like rest in for awhile. If you have a situation that needs resolution, focus on something else instead. The answer will come to you in an indirect way.

Leo or Leo Rising
Astronaut jumps.
Your passion for reaching higher heights is ready to be unleashed. Gravity pulls us down and keeps us grounded. That’s fine. But what if your goals had no gravitational field? What if they were limited by nothing but the atmosphere of your imagination. Tune into your passion and follow it to the moon.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
Crumbling soil between your fingers.
What are the resources you are working with? How fertile is your soil? You are about to start building. You are creating new patterns and intentions for your career. So look at the soil. Appraise your skills while you make your plan. The steps you take now are instrumental in growing your garden.

Libra or Libra Rising
Playing a wind instrument.
If you funnel your breath through a flute, you can create graceful music. The right instrument will help you transcend the mundane and reach new heights of beauty. What will allow you to do more with less? Can you make simple changes that exponentially increase your contribution? It’s time to take what you’re doing to the next level.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Buoys in a lake.
Take time out to recognize those solid relationships that simultaneously anchor and uplift you. Is there ever a limit to the gratitude that can be shown for relationships like these? Give freely in your compliments and recognitions of these people. The process will help you feel closer to yourself.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Rocks at the base of a waterfall.
These stones are worn smooth by the force of the falling water. Your relationships are the result of all of the little moments. The words that you have exchanged. The emotions you have shared. It all counts. Assess the grooves that have appeared in your partnerships (family, romantic, friendships or otherwise). What needs to change?

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Tunnel through a mountain.
In order to build a tunnel through a mountain, you must make sure that the structure you are building has integrity. Without integrity the entire mountain will collapse. This metaphor relates to your daily life. If you don’t have healthy habits and self-care built into your day, you won’t be able to achieve your goals. Take care of yourself.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Butterflies.
Our brains are trained to see the limitations of our reality. As children we need to learn certain limits so that we can survive. “The stove is hot.” “Look both ways before you cross the street.” But now you need to decide which limitations are ready to be discarded. A caterpillar is limited by gravity, until it becomes a butterfly. The same is true for you.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
The pied piper.
It’s easy to follow along blindly. But now is the moment to be deeply honest with yourself. There are feelings that need to be acknowledged. There are practical things you can do to help this along. Spend time alone. Contemplate nature. Journal. Meditate. Talk about your feelings. Eliminate distractions. You’re ready for clarity.

Aries or Aries Rising
Cotten candy at the county fair.
How do you cultivate hope? What are the special ingredients? There must be a little bit of fluffy optimism. But at the core of optimism is a belief. A belief is what holds this sweet and airy confection together. Spin a cloud of hopefulness around yourself. You can create it with a little sugar and a helpful positive belief.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
A trail in the jungle.
You can make your home anywhere. Home comes from a sense of belonging and belonging starts in your own heart. Walk through the jungle in your imagination and sense the abundance of life. This feeling is real abundance that can support you anywhere you go. You belong and you have enough. Use your imagination to feel it.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
Petals in the wind.
It’s time to release. Survey your life and take stock of what you’re holding onto. We hold on because we know that it’s safe. We are comforted by the familiar. But right now it’s time to let go, especially when it comes to old relationship dynamics. Look for ways to break the patterns. This can be beautiful. Like a shimmer of petals on the wind.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
Piano keys.
Beauty is the result of practice. You are developing new muscles. Find a system and follow it. Simplify your life. Go step by step. Your attention will wander. Bring it back and continue to improve. If you can manage to do this without self-judgement, you will feel as if you are playing a beautiful song. Keep your attention focused in the moment and you will feel centered.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Helium balloons.
It’s time to rise up above it all. Helium is lighter than the surrounding molecules, so it floats. To do this you can’t pay attention to other people’s emotional reactions. You need to focus on your own creativity and contribution. Don’t get sucked in. Just keep floating up above it all. This is easier if feel generous about your contribution. Let your feeling of generosity uplift you.

Leo or Leo Rising
Tadpole on the brink of transformation.
What needs to change for you to feel accepted? You may yearn to feel more accepted in your family, community or career. This feeling you crave starts from a deep sense of self-acceptance. It’s time to fully embrace who you are. You are on the brink of a transformation and it begins with your sense of belonging and feeling at home in this world.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
Horizon line.
The horizon line is both defined and undefined. Real and imaginary. You are doing mental gymnastics as you study your thought patterns and explore new mental frontiers. Our thoughts and beliefs broadly determine our life experience. Sometimes we need to change how we think so that we can change our lives. Be brave and proactive as you redefine what you believe.

Want more wisdom? Book a reading with Sandy here or follow her on Instagram.

Libra or Libra Rising
A feast.
One way to increase your sense of security is to honor what you already have. Play the gratitude game. Give thanks for your resources everyday. Whatever they may be. If all you have is the air that you breathe, start there. Giving gratitude is a form of generosity. It is a way of saying, “I am full and I give back energetically.” From this place your resources will replenish.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Light on a riverboat.
This symbol says that you are moving through shadows and you are in emotional territory. You will soon cross the river and arrive at dry land. The best thing that you can do is to sit with the emotions and feel them fully. When you get to dry land you can process the experience with more logic. This emotional journey is helping you become your most authentic self.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Grecian columns.
You are seeking inner stability. You are defining your inner pillars of self trust and self worth. You can do this through meditation. When in doubt, look for your resilience within. This is an spiritual and emotional connection with your strength. Meditation is a practice that helps you increase your emotional resilience. It is the columns that support your structure.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
High flying hawk.
You need more perspective. You are ready for change and you need to find a new way of doing things. Before you can get into the nitty gritty of what that looks like, you need to fly high above and connect with the big picture. What do you believe? What are your values? What is your vision for your life? Connect with a sense of hope and you’ll know what to do.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
Over the edge of a waterfall.
Let the momentum take you. There are times when you need to go with the flow. Where is the river pushing you? Let yourself rest and receive. This advice makes sense as long as you are tuned into your values. If you can make choices that are aligned with your values and at the same time go with the flow of your intuition, you will feel alignment.

Aries or Aries Rising
A buzzing bee hive.
You need your community. This is a time of letting go and releasing control. That’s really hard to do. Remember that your actions don’t define you. There is nothing to prove. You are valuable no matter what you achieve. Let go of the struggle and your desire to be number one. This will open you up to more intimacy and a real feeling of connection and trust.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
A coral reef.
There is a wide variety of experiences that you can have. The world is abundant with many types of species and habitats. Try on different attitudes. Examine your expectations for yourself.

Hypnotic music.
Go on an inward journey. Your dreams and your intuition have special messages. Pay more attention to your inner truth than you do to the nightly news. You have the wisdom inside of you.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
Fairyland.
Take yourself out of this dimension and into another imaginary one. The closer you feel you are to magic, the more you’ll see the possibilities in your “real” world. You are powerful like an arrow, you can choose a direction and go after it with focus and clarity. But in order to activate this sense of focus and clarity you need to use your imagination and release your fear.

Looking into the fire.
There is a great potential brewing. Go into the zone. The same way you would if you were meditating on a candle flame. Feel your potential flickering and building. Soon you will have a chance to shine out in all directions, but for now you must cultivate your power within. Meditation will help. Figure out your best ways to get into “the zone.” It will pay off later.

Two people rowing a canoe.
The ride will go smoothly if both people know what they are doing and know how to communicate. But it doesn’t work if there is miscommunication or one person doesn’t do their fair share. Is there some relationship in which you need to be a better partner or need to work on better communication? You might start with your relationship with yourself.

Inventing a new game.

Salt and pepper.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
Pulling a cart.
You may need some reassurance. Yes, the path ahead is uncertain. Yes, the weather is changing. But you are still on track. You’ve prepared your cart, and you are still pulling it along. Things are already in motion, so just keep going. It’s easier to continue once you’ve already started. So continue on into the unknown. You’ve got what you need.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
A little spark of light.
The spark represents a deep inner knowing. Yet, the idea is half-formed. You are seeking new information and new certainty, but you have only so much to go on. A feeling. A glimmer of an idea. A tiny spark. Tend to your spark until it becomes a flame by creating an environment for self-discovery. Journal, visualize, reflect. Decisiveness will follow.

Leo or Leo Rising
Hopscotch.
The focus is currently on career and a lot of change is taking place. It’s easy to get caught up in your ego by comparing yourself to others and wondering if you’re good enough. The antidote is playfulness. When it comes to work, make it a game and be creative. This is a “jumpy” time. Instead of jumping out of reaction to fear or ego, turn it into a game of hopscotch.

A cough.

But don’t stop there. It’s important to also define what it is that you do want. Move yourself past the reflexive action (the cough) and into aligned action that helps you feel vibrant, healthy and alive.

A nursery rhyme.

Windmill.
Your energy can come from new sources. You don’t need to push as hard as you have been. Take a break and think about how you can harness more of what is already available to you.

Gold coins.
