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.

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.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
A wild boar.
In this image you are rooting around in the vegetable garden, finding and devouring fresh food. You need to get grounded and connect with your wildness and your desire. From there you can put energy into achieving your dreams. You need passion to make success happen. Connect to the wild earth and find your center. When you feel grounded you can build.

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. Some of them are outdated. You may be able to explore new ecosystems and shake things up. The past does not determine the future. If you’ve been waiting to begin, the time is now.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
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. Sometimes it’s confusing to tell which voice is intuition and which is fear. Listen closely and learn to determine the difference. You are ready to learn more about your own inner truth.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
A game of pool.
It’s good to assess all of the possible moves, this is a game of strategy. What strategy would help you win right now? Get a higher perspective. Think bigger than you ever have.

Leo or Leo Rising
Caterpillar.
Keep scooting along and eventually you will transform. Your job is not to understand when or how. The technicalities might even frighten you. Instead, follow your instincts.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
Pasta shapes.
You have lots of options. If you are feeling a little bored, it’s time to change it up. But you don’t necessarily need to change the whole dinner. Just choose a new shape of pasta. Meaning, don’t feel like you need to start from scratch. Reexamine your motivations and values and discover if there’s a way to change the attitude with which you are approaching difficult issues.

Libra or Libra Rising
Floating in a raft.
You might feel like you are out to sea, but you are perfectly safe. Instead of thinking about how unstable the raft is, focus on wonderful it is to have something to hold onto.

You just need confidence and then you can tackle any obstacle.

Flying squirrel.

An antique broom.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Feather falling.
Feathers are cozy and insulating. Change your perspective so that you can bring more of this energy into your life. It’s okay to retreat. You may need to make a warm nest and settle in.

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.

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.

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.

Aries or Aries Rising
Train engine.
You have the power to succeed. You are the train engine. All you have to do is decide where you want to go, what resources you will bring, and who you will serve. Hold these questions in mind as you begin to take action. Let the answers come spontaneously as you work. Imagine yourself as the train engine, creating great change and impact in the world. A force.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
Lazy river
Drift along. As you float you are simultaneously going somewhere and doing nothing. This is the right balance for now. See what wisdom you can collect as you drift. Imagine yourself floating downstream, lazily dragging your fingers through warm water. Meditate, doodle, daydream. The insights you have while you are resting will take you far.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
A telescope.
You get to control where you are looking with your metaphorical mighty telescope. You are in charge of your mental perspective. There may have been recent hurts or let downs. These are important and not important at the same time. What you can control is how you are processing the past. Feel your feelings but also notice if there is a different way to focus your thoughts.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
The blueprint.
It’s time to bring planning and logic into more areas of your life. Be as objective as possible when thinking about your issues. Especially with relationship issues, would it help to come up with a plan for a new approach? In work, love and relationships, learn from the past and take logical next steps. If you need outside support in this process, make sure to ask for it.

Leo or Leo Rising
Spring cleaning
Now is your chance to tackle a big project. The first step is to make sure that what you are working on is aligned with your current values. If it’s a fit, you’ll have no trouble getting motivated.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
Funhouse mirrors.
In a funhouse, each mirror shows a distorted reflection. Maybe the way you’ve been reflecting on yourself is wrong. Maybe the truth of who you are needs to be accessed through a new approach. It’s with pure spontaneity, fun, love and a deep level of trust that you will find your true self reflected in the funhouse mirrors of life. Start with playfulness and fun and go from there.

Libra or Libra Rising
A bucket of water.
Talking and socializing can always inspire you. But currently, you can find the answers to all your questions deep within. Water is symbolic of emotions. A bucket contains water. Sit with your emotions. Tenderly connect with your inner child. Be still. After you’ve processed alone, it will be much easier to say what you need to say in your important relationships.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Fishing.
Waiting patiently to catch the fish. It might seem like you need to run around everywhere to find what you’re looking for. Instead, sit and wait. Throw out one long linear line and see what one thing comes back to you. This is a process of simplification and meditation. Go inward and reflect while you wait. You will be rewarded with a wonderful catch.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Brilliant paint colors.
Splash a new layer of vibrant color over the structures of your life. You could metaphorically use a fresh coat of paint. There is nothing inherently wrong. It’s just appropriate now to change some superficial things about how you use your time and resources. As you change some small details it will become easy to see the real value that you have created.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Bear hug.
It’s time to change something about your home, family dynamics or emotional processing. So that you can feel truly embraced by your world. Do you need to give yourself a bear hug? Do you need to be nurtured in some way? Do you need to feel more at home in your body or in your space? The thing that changes should help you feel held.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
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. Are you pushing when you should be accepting? Or striving when you could be receiving? There is power in the vibration you’re emitting. Harness that energy.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
Gold coins.
First of all, you carry all of your gold within you. It can never be taken away. But because that’s hard to remember, this horoscope needs to say something about ego and shame. There is really nothing to lose. When you let go of your ego concerns, the ones that make you afraid of how you’ve failed or are perceived — then you become very rich. You know your self-worth.

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.

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.

Believe in yourself and your ability to rise up above the rest of the garden.

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.

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?

Libra or Libra Rising
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.

NUMINOUS TAROTSCOPES: APRIL 2019

Here comes spring! And it’s a time to practice the art of receiving, says Bess Matassa, who also has a personal audio Tarot reading for April 2019 for each sign …

April 2019 card for the collective: The Empress

As we transition from Aries to Taurus energy in April 2019, The Empress asks us to move beyond our scarcity mentality. Ruled by Venus, The Empress presides over the holy heaven-on-earth trinity of sex, beauty, and money. She is the QUEEN OF RECEIVING, and this month she is asking us to smoke out any old stories about our lack of worth, so we can reap all the juicy fruits that are ripe for the plucking.

In the weeks to come, let The Empress remind you that pursuing what you love is the fastest way to magnetize more of this into your life. What if it didn’t have to be any harder than that? Once there, try not to get caught up in the self-sabotaging cycle of immediately wondering how long it will last. Imagine if, by simply saying “yes” to only what feels good, this opulence continued to propagate organically in your world.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

THE 2019 ARIES WAXING MOON WANTS YOU TO GET GRITTY

Building on the recent Capricorn New Moon’s soulful sweat, the 2019 Aries Waxing Moon invites us to get friendly with friction and persevere for our passions, says Jennifer Racioppi

Photo: Tyler Nix

Waxing Quarter Moon // January 14 2019 // 1:45am ET // 23 degrees Aries

2019 wasted no time before it dropped us off in the deep end of the cosmic transformation pool. Kicking off with a Saturn/Sun conjunction, an immediate entrance into Eclipse season, and Uranus stationing direct with a square to the nodes of fate, January has been a robust initiation into the most profound sense of grit and resilience.

With the 2019 Aries Waxing Moon punctuating the halfway mark between the most recent Solar Eclipse, and the upcoming Total Lunar Blood Super Moon Eclipse, the last in its series in Leo, this Waxing Moon is a check-in point that provides a vital moment to put your feet on the earth and ground down. In Mars-ruled Aries, conjoined with Uranus, it might feel a wee-bit volatile, possibly even angry. Because of this, nurturing your passion remains a non-negotiable.

No matter how hard things might feel, trust that this too shall pass. You have everything you need to go the distance …

///

// The Cycle //
This Waxing Quarter Moon harkens back to the 2018 Aries New Moon. Think back to April 15, 2018—what intentions did you set then?  This opening square to the Sun should bring growth and stimulation to goals set then. What did you set in motion then that relates to what’s beginning to sprout in your life now? Tend to the crops that are starting to fruit. They need to be your most important focus.

///

// The Transits //
At the time of this Waxing Moon, Saturn, Mercury, Pluto, and the Sun form a dense stellium in Capricorn. Thankfully, Neptune in Pisces sends a soft beam of support to this otherwise, rigid, and robust configuration that’s commanding you to drop the façade, get real, and work hard (possibly harder than you ever have in your whole life).

On the more easeful side of good luck, Venus, the planet of love, meets up with Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion. Yet despite these aspects that take the edge off, this Waxing Moon’s connection to Uranus and to the nodes of fate, is reminiscent of one of the most difficult astrological energies we’ve experienced over the past decade: the Uranus-Pluto Square. This aspect took place from 2013-2015 and triggered massive political change. With Uranus remaining in Aries for only six more weeks, this Waxing Moon is one of the last throwbacks to this challenging configuration. Lean into the challenge. 

///
// The Square //
The Sun in Capricorn, only 7 degrees away from Aquarius, commands respect. With the Sun creeping closer and closer to the South Node, which brings past actions and their subsequent karmas front and center in your life, now’s not the time to take your eye off of your goals. Instead, keep a steady focus on what you most want, need, must do, this lifetime. This Aries Waxing Moon might feel super angsty, especially as it conjoins Uranus, but don’t let the angst push you in the wrong direction. Yes, you might need to surrender what you no longer need, or what isn’t working. However, don’t turn against yourself. Or your goals.

///

// The Opportunity //
With the Leo Total Lunar Eclipse just one week away, it’s not the time to hope for easy, but rather to trust that you have what it takes to rise to the occasion. Even with the Moon waxing, which generally connotes a time of gains, the cosmic broom also wants to sweep away that which you no longer need.

While this Waxing Moon will shine a light on the positive seeds you planted with the 2018 Aries New Moon, overall this is a tough, hard-edged astrological moment. So if it feels challenging, let it. Don’t take it personally. Instead, dig in and commit to your truth. Grit, a combination of passion and perseverance, means staying ferociously committed to your goals. Lead with tenacity.

ARE YOU A MOON PLUTO PERSON?

Some of the cosmos’ most emotionally intense astro babes, Moon Pluto people dive deep and love hard, says Aliza Einhorn. Find out if you’re one of them and how to navigate the depths  …

Photo: ActionVance

WHAT IS A MOON PLUTO PERSON?
In my early 30s, I got an astrology reading. It was my second one ever, I think. The astrologer took one look at my birth chart and said to me these words: emotionally intense! He was eyeballing that Moon Pluto conjunction in Virgo in my First House.

Please don’t fret if my astro-jargon is confusing. Here’s the gist:

If the Moon and Pluto intermingle in your chart, you’re a Moon Pluto person. This means your emotions are powerful, forceful, intense. And those emotions, at times, may get you into trouble.

Moon = feelings and Pluto = powerful. Pluto always intensifies what it touches.

///

YOUR CHART IS A MAP OF YOU
Your birth chart is a map of your soul’s adventure in this lifetime, but also your day to day personality. Throughout their lives, Moon Pluto people are told: you’re too sensitive, too emotional, too obsessive, too serious!

The feelings can be so intense, all consuming, that we often feel we must DO SOMETHING with them, and we should, although there are good and less good options.

What I describe below may seem intense, but being a Moon Pluto person really is a gift, and I’ll tell you why: we are deep, sensitive, creative, intuitive. This is good! The depth comes from the feelings, especially the ones we don’t want to feel, the ones that may scare us and others too. This world is rarely equipped to handle such intensity and passion pouring out of a single individual.

It’s up to you to save yourself, my darlings, but I can help …

///

ARE YOU A MOON PLUTO PERSON?
The following is a general and not exhaustive list for how to identify a Moon Pluto person in the wild.

*Note: if you respond to what I’m saying here, but can’t claim any of these chart placements, your Moon-Pluto-ness is likely showing up in some other way in your birth chart. Also, additional chart factors can tame or exacerbate one’s Moon Pluto intensity.

Does your birth chart have any of the following? 

1// The Moon in aspect to Pluto somehow, someway 
In astrology, the most talked about aspects (aspects = how the planets in your chart relate to each other) are the conjunction, square, opposition, sextile, and trine.

The first three are noteworthy for the challenges they bring, and the last two for their helpful or lucky qualities. Although the conjunction may be the most disruptive and the sextile or trine the easiest to integrate, ALL Moon Pluto mash-ups make you a Moon Pluto person.

The conjunction 
Truth: You feel everything intensely and need constructive outlets for your passions. Or else!

Risk: You blow up at people. You blow up at yourself. “Alone forever!” you cry.

The square
Truth: Emotions are as strong as with the conjunction, but held in. They get buried like bones in the yard until they rise from their graves like the figures on the Judgment Tarot card!

Risk: Trouble identifying exactly how you feel, but feeling the churning and burning within. It’s not heartburn and yet it is.

The opposition
Truth: Most Moon Pluto people get bullied at some point in their lives, but the opposition aspect brings particularly formidable (i.e. scary) foes.

Risk: Staying too long in bad, bad relationships. Many Moon Pluto people are at risk for getting stalked, in guess you were wondering why this has happened to you over and over.

The sextile + trine 
Truth: Congratulations! You’ve won the Moon Pluto lottery. The sextile and trine are less angsty overall. You have the positive traits of the other placements and fewer of the extremes.

Risk: No known risks except that depth and sensitivity are rarely in style for long 😉

///

2// Moon in the Eighth House 
Because we associate the Eighth House with Pluto, Moon in the Eighth is a Moon Pluto combo. You feel. You feel deeply. You obsess. You keep secrets about those obsessions. You’re a natural medium. You know stuff. Spooky stuff. Lots of it.

Life Advice: Use your magical powers for good.

///

3// Pluto in the Fourth House 
Because we associate the Fourth House with the Moon, Pluto in the Fourth is a Moon Pluto combo. This is the tumultuous-home placement. If you were born with Pluto in the Fourth, there was trauma in childhood. You experienced it or witnessed it or both.

Life Advice: Find that safe and secure home to call your own.

///

4// Moon in Scorpio 
Another Moon Pluto mash-up because Scorpio is associated with Pluto. Does anyone really know how you feel? Enigmatic on the outside. Fiery cauldron on the inside!

Life Advice: Learn to let go. As much as I LOVE telling Geminis to meditate (usually the last thing they want to do), I love teaching Scorpio Moons about letting go, whether of unrequited love or vengeance.

///

MOON PLUTO MAGIC
So now what? What to do with all the tzuris? Here are five ways to soothe your aching Moon Pluto soul:

Art. It doesn’t matter what it is, whether you paint or write or fire dance, make crystal grids. Even housework can be artful. You must EXPRESS YOURSELF. I call it “getting the poison out.” When you create something, you get the Moon Pluto whirlwind out of your body.

Talk. It doesn’t have to be a therapist. It doesn’t have to be an astrologer, tarot reader, healer or anyone you pay. You can talk to a friend, to a stranger at a cafe, as long as your person listens, doesn’t judge. Moon Pluto people feel shame for feeling so much and not always able to master it. They need good people around them.

Heal. I know this may sound like a stretch if you’ve never considered it, but Moon Pluto people are healers. Maybe it’s crossed your mind and you’ve never explored it. Explore it. The healing you give the world could be with your words, your voice, your touch, but I guarantee that you heal yourself by healing others.

Study. Most Moon Pluto people I know are interested in mysticism or magic. You have natural psychic ability and psychic development will not only interest you, but soothe you too. When you study the occult, it’s like a mirror. You see yourself. Find a class on-line or in person or a few good books.

Sweat. Move your body. This is one more way to express those powerful emotions and one of the best ways to release what’s inside of you. It’s an exorcism that you do for yourself. Best if the movement leads to sweat and even tears (blood not required).

Dear Moon Pluto people, I promise you’re not doomed! You can create your life — not in spite of your intense emotions but because of them. With them! Include them in your world and you’ll be the happy happy Moon Pluto person you were always meant to be.

Capricorn // Capricorn Rising
Brick and mortar. Brick by brick. Step by step. You only need to do one thing at a time. Be present in the moment. And trust that you can do the work you need to do. Pay attention to the pressure that you put on yourself. The work gets done step by step. You can’t go faster than you can go. Set an intention for how you want to feel and then take it one step at a time.

Aquarius // Aquarius Rising
Eating grass. You must nourish yourself. A cow eats grass— it seems nourishing, but not exciting. Find your joy in the simple and nourishing things that you can do for yourself. What kind of nourishment does your soul need? It’s probably not junk food or binge watching TV. Feed your soul the things that lift your heart and help you feel connected.

Pisces // Pisces Rising
A ping pong table. You need to go back and forth on some ideas. Brainstorm. Talk it out. Collaborate. Connect. When you go back and forth on some ideas, you’ll find that you suddenly have a whole new vision. Let yourself sit in uncertainty, but keep the ball moving forward. That way you’ll cover all of the possibilities and feel out the right next step.

Aries // Aries Rising
A duck bobs its head, looking for fish. When the duck turns itself upside down, its tail feathers stick straight up in the air. Even when you feel backwards and like you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re still reaching great heights. You just might not be able to see it yet. Keep working. Be diligent. Eventually you’ll see how far you’ve come. You are making definite progress.

Taurus // Taurus Rising
Laughing and clapping. Sometimes joy needs to be punctuated by a strong physical movement. This could be a moment for celebration, if you’ll let yourself feel it. Punctuate the moment! Skip, dance, run, slap your thigh, clap, jump in the air. Be very expressive and remind yourself to celebrate, even if it doesn’t seem appropriate. Use your body to uplift your mood.

Gemini // Gemini Rising
A bunny hops down a hole. The bunny spends a lot of time hidden away. Follow the rabbit. What mysteries does your own heart hold? If you follow your feelings, they’ll lead you to the source. Sit with your feelings in the dark, quiet burrow of your heart and heal. This process will help you trust yourself and others. It will improve your self worth. It’s time for self-reflection.

Cancer // Cancer Rising
Peanut butter sandwich. Two pieces of bread stuck together like glue. It’s time to examine how you “stick” to other people. That just means, how do you partner? What kinds of patterns do you find yourself in? This is a conscious examination, so conversation, journaling, or talk therapy may help you discover a new level of harmony in partnership.

Leo // Leo Rising
A row of dominoes. When you push one domino, they all fall down. This is like life. When you get out of whack with nutrition, energy levels may come crashing down. When you are strapped for time, you may spend more money. Everything is connected. Now is the time to put some order in the basic mundane habits. Just make small improvements.

Virgo // Virgo Rising
Puffy clouds. A vision of a cartoon sky. This is the symbol to play and have fun. Watch cartoons in the afternoon. Skip rope. What would just be fun to do? The fun thing should be totally extracurricular. When you practice following your heart, you learn to de-stress. And anxiety fades away. Find excuses to laugh and have fun. Make joy your medicine.

Libra // Libra Rising
A pontoon boat. A boat like this is flat, and often it features an observation window to survey the bottom of the lake. Stand on the boat in the still waters of your emotions, and peer deep into your heart. What can you do to slow down? How can you be more tender with yourself? Rock yourself gently, just like a baby, and watch every emotion swell up.

Scorpio // Scorpio Rising
A constellation. A series of stars, connected by imaginary lines. Those lines hold mythic importance in the cultures that treasure them. But they don’t really exist. Or do they? Examine your deep beliefs. We all think that our beliefs are real. Until we question them. There may be a few of yours that are ready to be questioned. It’s time to redraw the lines.

Sagittarius // Sagittarius Rising
Heavy footsteps. This is a symbol of power and strength. You have an opportunity to re-evaluate your worth. Get really clear about your values. Step strong and stand tall. Look yourself in the mirror and talk yourself up. You’ve got this. You’ve got resources. You’ve got value. You can make it happen. Keep the momentum going. Build up your self-worth.

Capricorn // Capricorn Rising
Hold a flag up high. The flag symbolizes the leader. When you’re ready, you can hold up a flag and the crowd will follow you. Trust yourself as a leader. Believe in yourself. Trust your own authority. That will signal everyone else to follow you too. Know where you’re going. Plan and prepare, but don’t get stuck there. This is the moment for you to do more than prepare. It’s time to take action.  Make the future happen.

Aquarius // Aquarius Rising
A silhouette of a faraway boat. Put yourself out in the distance for a while. Retreat. That’s how you replenish your emotional cup and prepare for new inspiration. Follow the lilting swell of your imagination. Interpret your dreams. Study the veins of a leaf. Listen to the symphony of sounds that surrounds your coffee break. When you direct your attention in an unusual way, you become privy to unusual new ideas.

Pisces // Pisces Rising
Popcorn. Popcorn pops. Imagine yourself as popcorn. You are transforming. You are turning yourself inside out. You need to acclimate to a new temperature, and you need to do it in a way that is expansive. Remember what really matters because as you get busier, your attention will scatter if you don’t stay focused. You need to expand in an empowered way, not because you’re just reacting to the heat. Know your kernel of truth. Then expand.

Aries // Aries Rising
Waving farewell to the departing ship. You may need to leave a part of yourself behind. This may seem a little dramatic, but once you have clarity, you’ll find that is actually the most gentle next step. Don’t be afraid to move forward. The plans that you make now should be solid. This thing that you leave behind may be tangible or intangible. It might be an old outdated pattern or belief, or it may be a situation or person that’s no longer in alignment. Cast off and move forward.

Taurus // Taurus Rising
Three scoops of ice cream. An abundance of flavors. This is a feel-good symbol that reminds you to revel in your senses. Enjoy colors, tastes, smells, and textures. Nurture a positive mindset by enjoying the things you can enjoy. Appreciate your surroundings and you’ll find that life becomes more delicious. Make daily appreciation a habit. When you feel that your senses are pleased, your path to inspiration becomes more clear.

Gemini // Gemini Rising
Fireflies in the dusk. The light from the sun dies away, but the fireflies light up their magic light. How can you move forward now? What do you need to let go of? Something has got to go. Allow yourself to transition gracefully. Out of the dusk will arise a shimmer of magic to light your path as you move to the next phase. Begin now by being much more gentle with yourself. Much more kind. Remind yourself at every turn to lean into self-love.

Cancer // Cancer Rising
Blowing a horn. Announce yourself. Make it known that you are present. It’s time to make yourself available in relationship in a powerful new way. Maybe you’ve fallen out of a habit of being present or there is some subtle way that you’re holding back. If it falls within your boundaries, make yourself available to commune intellectually with another person at this time. Connect and communicate and open your heart to love.

Leo // Leo Rising
Spinning a hula hoop. Once you get into the rhythm, you can keep it going. So much of our lives are run on habit. Habits can be changed, but it takes persistence, gentleness, and an emotional goal. What would you like to tweak and fine tune so that you can get healthier habits running on automatic? Set your goals and then spend a little time focusing on putting them into practice. Keep the process simple and serene.

Preparing backstage. The moment of your big reveal is on the horizon. Imagine yourself in your dressing room, adorning and rehearsing. Put yourself in the mindset of the performer. Be ready to share your talents and gifts with the world. Prepare for fun, play, and creativity. Then explode onto the stage. You need to diligently prepare, or else this positive attention could catch you off guard. Let yourself shine and shimmer in the spotlight. Just have a good time.

A plastic unicorn has an adventure. Lose yourself in the whimsy of childhood. What does your inner child need right now? What pleasure or adventure? What fantasy or entertainment?

Nurturing your inner child by doing the kinds of things that children enjoy will be deeply healing.

A bridge over a gentle river. You must make new connections. Go from here to there. By crossing the bridge, you’ll gather new information and that will help you problem solve. It will also help you gain confidence. You’ll strengthen relationships which will help you know yourself better. You’ll feel inspired and vibrant through the process. Focus on putting yourself out there and following the nudge of your curiosity. Connect.

Pruning the roots. What does security mean to you? When you think about it, what comes to mind? Money? Relationships? Peace? Humans have a strong need for security. Examine this psychological need to see if there are some new structures or systems that can be put in place to help you feel more secure. Or maybe there is something you’d like to refine about your concept of security. Connect with your symbolic root system.

CAPRICORN SEASON 2018: LET YOUR LEGACY LAND

As we close out 2018, Capricorn season’s transits ask us to sit back, survey the path ahead, and move forward with unapologetic selfhood, says Bess Matassa. PLUS listen to the all-new Astrocast podcast with Bess and Sandy Sitron …

Slip into something silky and savor the self-sufficient stillness. As the Sun moves into Capricorn to close out 2018, it’s a time to settle back into the structural support of all that you’ve been building, and summon a regal trust in the inevitable arrival of rewards you can’t yet see. It’s a high-end hotel of a cosmic season, complete with succulent room service feasts, and “do not disturb” boundaries.

With powerhouse Mars stepping into its home sign of Aries starting New Year’s eve, and Uranus stationing direct in Aries in early January, the weeks to come thrum with the sheer exuberance of arrival. It’s a time to make no apologies about putting yourself firmly first. And with Venus finally coming up from the Scorpionic trenches to move into Sagittarius, we’re invited to come alive to what wants to live through us, swapping strategy and cunning in favor of a more freewheeling roll.

Like a tough and tender shoot coming through the pavement cracks, where are you naturally ready to burst into being? Capricorn Season is here to remind us that consistent effort is what leads to the slow growth that is an organic inevitability, rather than an exhausting, sweat-drenched push.

The weeks to come are a reminder to allow the landslide to bring our luxurious legacy right to our feet …

Listen to the full Capricorn Season 2018-19 report from Numi resident astrologers Bess + Sandy HERE and read on for the season’s 4 key astro events …

///

Sun in Capricorn (12.21.18 – 1.20.19) // Room Service.
Plush and posh rather than patriarchal, Capricorn energy reminds us of our right to check into our own lair and lock the door, inviting in only what truly sustains us for the long-haul. As we step over the threshold of the calendar year, treat this season like your personal room with a view, reviewing all that’s gone down from a regal remove, and taking a timeout to power up from the inside out. Trust that your life truly is your domain, and craft a menu for the coming year that fits your exact appetite.

///

Mars enters Aries (12.31.18 – 2.14.19) // NASCAR.
Mars entering Aries during Capricorn Season mixes maturity with mojo, and asks us to rev our engines for multiple revolutions around the track. This blend of energies is an invitation to get crystal clear about our motivations, and to match our hot-blooded desire to act with a more cultivated sense of what the world truly needs now. Check in with exactly what’s fueling your vehicle and plan your pit stops with precision, as you blend sheer willpower with careful realignments and grip the gravel beneath you.

///

Uranus direct in Aries  (1.6 – 3.6.19) // Hard Rock Anthems. “Here I am again on my own,” cries Uranus in Aries, complete with massive guitar solos. As Uranus completes its final pass through Aries, before fully settling into Taurean turf for a 7-year stay in March, we’re invited to smoke out any fears of exile, and remind ourselves that our right to be exactly as we are sometimes means standing in fierce and fiery solitude. It’s a transit for exploring where your urge to “belong” might be holding you back from your most vital expression, and where radical growth is pulsing beneath the skin of the status quo. Step out into the stadium and let your rallying cry rip!

///

Venus enters Sagittarius (1.7 – 2.3.19) // Hair Extensions.
Venus in Sag is the zodiac’s original “long hair don’t care” aficionado, pushing at the edges of constriction in partnership, and longing to roam free from head to toe. Whether partnered or solo, this transit asks us to free our minds, as we embrace wide open pleasure spaces of exploratory sensual seeking. To truly feel the beat with another, we’ve got to first find our feet in a personal dance, says Venus in Sag. Let your locks loose and undo the rules, as you pair commitment with the call of the rollicking road.
