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.

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.

Our Numinous Weekly Horoscopes from Sandy Sitron have a reading + cosmic symbol for your sign. Read for your Sun and Rising signs to get the full picture …

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 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.

Construction equipment.

The tallest plants in the garden.
Reach a little higher and grow a little taller. This might be uncomfortable, but stretch as far as you possibly can. Right now you are driven to succeed. You must climb with ambition. Once you reach the height you are trying to achieve, you can reassess your approach. But for now, push.

Libra or Libra Rising
Hiking poles offer support.
Yes, it’s possible to scramble up the mountain without a pole. But why not give yourself an extra assist? The best support you can give yourself right now is to be very clear about what you value. When you stumble, your values will be there to remind you to keep going and help you stand tall.

A big bird in a small tree.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
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. Then you can look around and decide if these relationships are working. Some rearranging needs to happen so that you can be comfortable in your surroundings.

A marching band.
You need an entire marching band to announce your presence. What are you fired up for? If you aren’t fired up, it’s time to get excited. If you are fired up, it’s time to deliver on your promise. Make it fun and creative. It’s time to stage a big entrance and receive lots of fanfare.

A kitten mews.
Is there a part of you that needs some gentle tender care? Slow down and ask yourself if you are lonely or tired. Do you need some kind of physical or emotional sustenance? It’s okay to prioritize yourself and give yourself that care. The outside world can wait. Go within and notice what you need.

A camel in the desert.

COLLECTIVE THEME FOR JUNE 2019: 6 of Wands

Close your eyes and feel the summertime heat building inside your body. Ruled by Jupiter in Leo, the 6 of Wands fuels our desires for fame, fortune, and flair. Coming at us fierce and fiery, the Numinous Tarotscopes theme for June is a collective call to the sustainable success of our personal brands.

This energy urges us to go heart first, no matter the external accolades. Asking us to break open the binary of achievement and failure, June is an invitation to craft our own cosmic corporate ladder. Sometimes we’re ahead, sometimes we’re behind, and it’s all part of trusting in whatever bold moves want to come through us in the moment.

What would feel like a gold star for your soul? What does a life well-lived really look like to you? The 6 of Wands hands us the Oscar envelope and allows us to celebrate whatever is revealed.

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

GEMINI OR GEMINI RISING: 3 of Cups
Real love is whatever feels real to you.

Happy birthday month, Gemstone! June’s invitation is a rainbow colored reminder to challenge stale storylines and hard-edged concepts—especially in the realm of romance and connection. The “3” is a hungry number, inviting us to swap either/or mentality and go for the whole damn buffet. More than any other sign, you have the capacity to understand all facets of this diamond life. In June, use this kaleidoscopic view to see where you may have been limiting yourself in love. Whether it’s platonic partnerships that are offering up soul-deep growth, or a heartbreak containing bitter medicine, it is all absolutely here to remind you of your capacity to reach out from the inside. And with your ruler, Mercury, traveling through Cancer’s emo waters all month, this is prime time to take these experiences out of your head and bring them back into your body and heart. This notion is rooted in that old adage about everybody being a form of God in disguise. Let yourself be guided by the idea that everyone’s heart is here to connect with you.

CANCER OR CANCER RISING: The Sun
Lean into the sweet sensation of separateness.

Think of this month like a clear beach morning in a solo bungalow, fueled by strong black coffee as you look out across your life with a sense of exactly who you are and what you need to do. With the North Node still highly activated in your sign, and powerhouse Mars traveling through it as well, June offers lessons in the concept of individuation, and is a time to focus on your own self-expression. This doesn’t mean you need to rupture relationships or hermit yourself into social oblivion. Instead, start by simply feeling into your “I.” Notice the times when you tend not begin a sentence this way, and investigate the roots of this discomfort. The Sun urges us to become more of the selves that only we can become, which means taking a few risks. What if it was okay that you’re not “for” everyone? In fact, what if this could be a wild liberation? Free yourself from any shame around being different in favor of cultivating even more of your own flavor.

LEO OR LEO RISING: Page of Wands Rx
I am ready to return to the original heat source.

Since the start of this astrological year you’ve been exploring the origins of your creative process, and, combining the elements of earth and fire, the Page of Wands wants you to use this month to closely examine how you initiate action and stoke your creative fires. Start by cultivating the capacity to sit with your urges and impulses rather than immediately leaping to lock them down by producing a shiny object. This may feel excruciating at first, but trust that there is deep magic in understanding how to befriend your emotions before they “do you.” Maybe it’s deliberately delaying a project. Or waiting a day longer to respond to a message. These simple acts can be a reminder to take pride of place at the center of your own life. With your ruler, the Sun, traveling through Gemini, you’re being reminded of the spaciousness that can be found by embracing the ephemeral. Watch sensations rise and fall, trusting what is for you never needs to be hunted down.

VIRGO OR VIRGO RISING: Page of Swords Rx
The slightest shifts can create megawatt expansions.

Ruled by Mercury, Virgo is the sign of responsiveness and adaptation. But when you lose a sense of connection to this natural ebb and flow, you can get stuck in endless nervous analysis. June’s magic medicine returns you to your inherent capacity to embrace constant change, without racing around to immediately make it all better. The Page of Swords always arrives after a long journey through the mental realm, slaying old storylines and staring into the face of the hooks and obsessions that can leave us feeling stuck. From there, it enacts the boldest act of all: it tells the brain to bugger off! With fellow Mercury-ruled shapeshifter Gemini ruling the skies right now, allow the hard packed elements of your life to soften by making very subtle adjustments that feel instinctively right. Your mutable earth sign is connected to the element of sand and you can use substance as your guide for June. Absorb the waters of emotion when they arise. Form yourself into little castles out of the wetness. And then let it all wash away, trusting that you can rise to meet any moment.

LIBRA OR LIBRA RISING: 5 of Swords
Being human means taking the highs with the lows.

The “5” cards are all about frictional development, Libra. But before you let that bring you crashing down from your idealized castle in the sky, take a moment to consider what “owning” your own mind might mean. What is the origin of your thought patterns? How much springs from an inner knowing, and how much is reaction? June offers up the opportunity to slip recenter yourself on your own throne. Start by considering what’s “pulling you” right now. There’s nothing wrong with being tugged along, begin by simply noticing what happens once you surrender to someone else’s emotional spin or demands. This month, you are learning to sift through the external buzz and let your own voice rise to the surface. Rather than riding the highs and the lows of other people’s trips right now, focus on your own capacity to steer your vessel, knowing that the journey towards calmer waters might require a little storm-ready self-sufficiency.

SCORPIO OR SCORPIO RISING: Knight of Wands
Moving with my desire brings me what I crave.

The Knight of Wands calls you to move through the world as if it were your natural element. Start by exploring the concept of “strut”—what would be the most carefree way of shimmying through your life right now? Maybe you’re holding your shoulders closed in an important conversation about a potential raise. Or keeping your legs crossed on a date when you really would rather open wide to the possibilities. The Gemini Sun forms an “inconjunct” aspect to your sign this month, which presents a profound invitation for integration and understanding. The lesson here is that when you actually prioritize the line of least resistance, you’ll always land on the flower with the sweetest nectar. You are alchemizing sweetness with strength right now. Let it all feel lighter, looser, and fueled by libido, Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS OR SAGITTARIUS RISING: Ace of Cups Rx
Cracking open to the honey is my creative mission.

With Jupiter powering its way through your sign this year, the opportunities for expansion in all directions have been profound—and sometimes this can feel like an overstuffed buffet, where the bottomless urge to load up another plate takes over, whether you’re full or not! And now June asks you to consider how and to what you’re saying “yes” to. The Ace of Cups asks you, quite simply, what you will do with your own beating heart? Will you tone down its drumbeat for fear that your passions are too big? Will you use it to make something that could only be built from your own blood? With the Sun in Gemini this month asking you to consider how you’re received in the world, and a fat Full Moon in your sign on June 17, remember you can create by channeling what’s already in front of you, rather than more and more onto your plate.

CAPRICORN OR CAPRICORN RISING: Queen of Wands
I am ready for all kinds of weather.

Take a moment to honor the big and beautiful energies that have graced your life since the start of the astro New Year in March, Capricorn: The Sun, the Queen of Pentacles, Death, and now the Queen of Wands. This cosmic combo has put you through a process of shaping and buffing, inviting you to bow at the altar of your very essence. Now, the Queen of Wands wants you to ask yourself: what witchery am I capable of? This isn’t about imposing your will on the landscape, but about better understanding exactly what kind of spells you’re here to cast. Maybe you’re a person who can walk into a room and change the climate with a smile. Or maybe your medicine is to urge others to wake up to reality. With Pluto, Saturn, and the South Node of the Moon colliding in your sign, it’s prime time to unleash your magic with clarity and compassion, understanding just how much force is in your corner and exactly how to wield it.

AQUARIUS OR AQUARIUS RISING: 7 of Wands
My signature scent is a perfume the world needs.

You’ve been traveling close to the ground since the start of this astrological year in March, Aquarius, brushing up against some of the more challenging cobblestones of the Minor Arcana— process that’s been about making things yours through experiential learning. The 7 of Wands comes through this month to beckon you back into your own specialness, with a little “me first” medicine. Feel into where you might be following right now, rather than forging your own path. You usually consider yourself the zodiac’s radical pattern breaker, but what systems are you still operating within? The Sun in fellow air sign Gemini, is asking you to consider the origins of your storylines, and your right to choose your own adventure.

PISCES OR PISCES RISING: 9 of Cups
Each wish works magic I can’t even imagine.

You’ve arguably got the corner on cloud life, Pisces, but June wants you to swap out a habit of swinging between checking out and crashing back down to earth. What does the process of staying on track with an ideal outcome feel like? Maybe it brings up fears that you have to make it happen. Or that it will never happen. The 9 of any suit invites a Hermit-like dedication to privacy, urging us to process on our own time. Check in with any secret wishes that might currently be for your heart only, noticing when you feel pressured to unveil your 5-year plan. Can you let whatever is being seeded have its own lifestyle and trajectory instead? With your ruler, Neptune, stationing retrograde near the end of the month, you’re moving towards a new way of working with the concept of hope. Learn to truly cherish what you can’t yet fully see.

ARIES OR ARIES RISING: Two of Cups Rx
Nothing inside of me needs to be removed.

Think of June as a time to take emotional inventory, Aries. The Two of Cups is a card of deep communion with pieces of ourselves we may want to purge, and wants you to investigate what parts of your emotional life you’ve been hiding away. When we attempt to compartmentalize these pieces, their voices actually get stronger, demanding to be seen and integrated. What facets of yourself do you feel are in need of “fixing” or hiding?  Think of this month as an opportunity to take a long, hazy summer weekend with the pieces of your story you’d rather purge, and learn instead to welcome these parts. What you’ll discover is that inviting these members of your “feelings family” home will hep you to feel more whole.

TAURUS OR TAURUS RISING: Page of Cups
Releasing my guard relaxes my soul.

This June, the Page of Cups is singing you the Titanic theme song, Taurus, reminding you that your heart truly does go on and on until you reach the end of this incarnation, and perhaps even beyond! Attempting to shut down or shut off simply won’t work—your urge for human connection will find its way into the cracks no matter what. Being relaxed in your body and soul necessitates a certain degree of trust that life is on your side. Not that nothing will hurt you. Not that you won’t be challenged, stripped down, and stood up. But this energy, and this month, is all about being reminded that when you allow yourself to soften and open you can move with, rather than against, all of the seasons of your life with grace and potency.

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.

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

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
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.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
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.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Gauzy fabric.
You are meant to soothe yourself with great ideas. The fabric is a symbol for swaddling and nurturance. The fact that the fabric is light and airy means that the nurturance comes from your ideas and concepts. You can gain some real mental perspective right now. Be very gentle and loving with yourself and find a new way of thinking about your life and potential.

Leo or Leo Rising
A powerful vacuum cleaner.
You are meant to take it all in. This is specifically in regard to your career. You should find that you are able to consume a lot of information. And you are tidying things up in your work world. When you are done with this phase, you’ll be able to share wonderful new ideas with society. So for now, learn and process. Take on many projects and use all of your skills.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
A squirrel in a tree.
You must keep working. Stay in motion. The answer will come to you when you’re in midair, leaping from tree to tree. You are exactly where you are meant to be. Just keep moving and adjusting and do it all without judging yourself. Pick one word that helps you set an intention for the day. Then stay in motion but lightly focused on your goal.

Libra or Libra Rising
Bright star.
Even on the darkest night, there might be a very bright star. Even if things feel more emotional or more challenging than usual, if you look closely, you’ll see the bright star that is being revealed. If you’re having an emotional time, ask yourself where you are expanding and where you are ready to release and let go. Zero in on the hidden meaning that is being unveiled.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
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.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Soft fluffy feathers.
This symbol is all about nestling into soft and cozy comfort. Your physical body is calling out for attention. How can you take small, daily actions of self-care? This may be a very sensual process. You may need to slow down and pay attention to your body. Don’t rush ahead or prioritize anything over your physical and emotional health. This is the key.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Inventing a new game.
You are ready to shake off the fear and step into your full radiance. But this isn’t as easy as snapping your fingers. You need to be more playful. Notice where you make things into a chore. Can you change them into a game instead? Everyday is a fresh chance to be creative. When you are afraid, your creativity turns into resistance. So turn everything into a game.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Salt and pepper.
You need to add some simple seasoning to your everyday life. It’s easy to go along and forget to find connection. Think of how much better a little bit of salt and pepper can make a meal taste. Think of how much more wonderful a little care and love can make your everyday life feel. You need to pay more attention to either giving or receiving. Or maybe both.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
A raven.
This symbol is a dose of transformation and intelligence. It also represents a challenge. You have to push yourself to get out of your current mindset and into a new way of thinking. You should rely on many different channels to help expand your ideas. Books, poetry, imagination, art and conversation will all help you see things in a new way. You need a fresh perspective.

Aries or Aries Rising
Hiking and reaching a new plateau.
You can set up camp on a stable new foundation. There are still surprises and you are still on a journey. But for now, set intentions for how you would like to feel stabilized. These could be intentions for financial stability or it could be about your stable sense of self-worth. Right now you can break into a new level of security. Remember that security is a mindset.

Aries or Aries Rising
Fire arrow.
It’s time to cut through. You might have to push yourself out of the emotional waters and dry out. Get yourself back on land. It’s been a soggy and emotional run and now you are here to light your own fire. So that you can get things done. Don’t worry about what you’ll do or how you’ll do it. Confidence is learned through action. So go. Illuminate your path as you fly.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
A parade.
You’re learning to enjoy the fruits of imagination. A parade offers imagination and surprises. You have to wait for each new act to arrive in front of you. You can’t skip ahead. You must be patient. There are more imaginative unveilings. More truths to be unveiled. Sit and wait. You don’t need to move. Let the awareness come to you.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
Wreath of wallflowers.
It’s easy to feel uncertain and hang back like a wallflower. But that won’t do. You are meant to learn from others and maybe even be a thought leader. It’s easier to weave your wallflower into a wreath if you come from a place of curiosity instead of judgement. There’s always something new to learn — let that idea lead you into exciting new social connections.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Tallest sunflower.
You are already enough. Even if you don’t always feel it. You’re doing enough. You are sturdy and your foundation is strong. Deny self-doubt and remind yourself of the truth — you are excelling and achieving. At this time you can gain momentum at work. Believe in yourself and your ability to rise up above the rest of the garden.

Leo or Leo Rising
Pizza Pie.
You’re having a pizza party and this can be an uplifting time. Let yourself feel jubilant. The pie shape is a wheel and circumstances are always turning. Events happen. Things change. It’s who you are on the inside that counts. Identify some goals so that you feel centered and then enjoy the party. Lean forward into whatever helps you have fun, learn and expand.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
A sprouting seed.
When you release the past, it’s easier to open up to the future. You are not a carbon copy of yesterday. You are so much more. You have the power to make your life what you want it it be. See today as a new beginning. See yourself as a seed, sprouting for the first time. If you’ve never sprouted before, there’s nothing there to judge. What kind of plant will you become?

The rose has thorns.
Make sure you’re ignoring what you need to ignore. Are you putting your attention on something superfluous? You only have so much time and attention. Make it count. There are relationships that really matter and there are ones that don’t. Instead of trying to make everyone happy, use your energy carefully. You’ll end up feeling aligned and carefree.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Self-massage.
You can give yourself a massage, you just need to set aside the time. Focus on healing and attending to your physical body. Creating self-care practices will make you a role model for others. Take good care of yourself and you’ll be better able to be of service. You may think you’ve heard this message before, but this week it’s especially important.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Racecar.
A racecar drives in a circle. It’s not complicated, but the other cars on the track make the sport difficult. You need to follow your own path, but there are many disruptions. Does this stoke your fires of creativity or make you want to shut down? Remember your goal. Put blinders on and drive right toward it. That will help you feel creative, free and directed.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Generations.
You are feeling many emotions and some of these emotions are ancient. Who in your family originated this feeling? If you can’t tap into the feelings directly, you’ll feel antsy. Just let yourself imagine the source of the emotions. The emotional release can power up your jet engines and help you feel inspired to achieve.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
A ladder.
The direction you need to go is up. Up for more mental perspective. If you find yourself grinding on some thoughts or ideas that are stressing you out, climb. Get on the ladder and get your head out of the mundane and into something more inspiring. There is always something to learn that can help you reframe. Reach for a new way of thinking.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
Imaginary palace.
You can live in a palace at any time. It exists in your imagination. There are always many stories that you can tell yourself. Some stories are worries and some are dreams. Which ones are safer? Your answer might tell you a lot about the state of mind that you feel most comfortable inhabiting. Remember that security is a human need. And it is always imagined.

Aries or Aries Rising
Drifting leaf.
You may feel like this is the time to power forward and take action. But your energy is better spent going with the flow. Discover if it’s possible to coast like a leaf on the wind or a twig in a river. Connect with the elements that surround you. Notice where you are supported. You can get a lot done alone, but you don’t need to.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
Cosmic teachers.
Continue to go about your daily life. But notice that every situation, relationship and emotion is a teacher. What might normally irritate you becomes meaningful when you reframe events and interactions as moments of learning. Interrupt your normal mental chatter and ask yourself what you need to learn. This is moment in which you can gain spiritual perspective.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
A piece of a cloud.
Eat clouds for breakfast. Fill yourself up with air and water — aka ideas and feelings. The fear might be that you drift away. But you will always come back down to earth like rain. You don’t have to worry. Your desire to share and teach will be supported. Disrupt your earthly security fears and just stay inspired by the knowledge and wisdom that you’re taking in.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Hands and heart.
You are under pressure and it’s coming from all directions. But your emotional intelligence is growing. Tend to yourself as carefully as you would tend to a newborn. If you feel safe and emotionally secure in your cozy nest of self-care, you’ll find that you can easily reach out your hands to share your heart with the world.

Leo or Leo Rising
Ray of light.
You’re getting a direct transmission. It’s coming at you like a ray of brilliant inspiration. If you become cloudy (and we all get cloudy sometimes) you’ll ignore the sparks. Stay awake by confronting your underlying subconscious fears and stripping them of their power. Then you’ll notice things that will inspire you for a very long time.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
Spices and herbs.
Reinvigorate yourself with vitalizing smells. You need a restart. You need to learn to let go and begin again. A transformation process becomes bleak if you feel disconnected from nature and your body. Let aroma bring you home to yourself. You are changing on deep levels and you need physical support in this process. Keep it simple.

Libra or Libra Rising
A submarine.
This ship can explore great depths, but it must stay self-contained. The internal pressure must be regulated. The control panels must be monitored. The technicians must work together. Get all of the parts of yourself working together. Monitor your own internal pressure. Then you can bring your ship into relationship, exploring and connecting with others in a healthy way.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Cow eats grass.
Honor your digestive process. How many stomachs do you need to digest everything that’s been coming your way? You can’t just keep taking it all on without a symbolic cleanse. Draw a diagram of what your metaphorical digestive process should be right now. What will help you process, cleanse, and release? This will make you much more creative.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Labyrinth.
You are creating a maze, when the path is actually a straight line. Get out of your own way. This can be much more simple than it is. Rearrange the shrubbery of your mind. When you begin your trip again with fun, playfulness and sharing as your driving values, you’ll find that the path is much easier to navigate.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Baby food.
There is a strange role reversal happening. You have loads of life experience. You know how to take charge. But for a moment you are like an adult trapped in a baby body. You have to let go of control and let yourself be coddled. This will bring you more perspective. Don’t fight the process, just let go and receive. You’ll go back to making boss moves soon enough.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Covered in clay.
The current energy might make you feel like you’re floating away. Getting very grounded will help you feel brilliant and aligned. If you want a good idea, breathe and center yourself in your body. If you want a new philosophical outlook, go outside. Ground your physical container and you’ll find that your creative ideas and social connections flourish.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
A target.
There’s a focal point to aim for. But you need to practice. The best way to waste time is to flail around trying to do something you’re not prepared for. Go step by step. Follow your routine and build up your skills. Focus on strength and you’ll find that everything becomes exponentially easier. Learning and practicing can feel very productive.
