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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE 2019 SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON WANTS YOU TO FIND YOUR TRUTH

The 2019 Sagittarius Full Moon brings a moment of clarity in explosive times. Use it to tap into what’s True for you, says Sandy Sitron

Photo: Justen de Vasconcellos

Full Moon // June 17 2019 // 4:31am ET // 25 degrees Sagittarius

Lava flows down a volcano. Each rivulet finds its own direction.

In this image, an eruption has already occurred. The 2019 Sagittarius Full Moon says you can find your own true direction, even in times of stress. Not only must you deal with the build-up of pressure, but you must use it to define your path.

On Monday June 17th at 4:31 am ET there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the sign of Truth with a capital “T.” The archer shoots an arrow toward a higher vision for humanity. And the 2019 Sagittarius Full Moon is sidled up next to Jupiter — the ruling planet of Sagittarius. This doubles down on the symbolism of “Truth.” It asks: what is your philosophy? What does your humanity represent for you at this time? Where are you headed? Are you optimistic enough to believe that you can get there?

Before we examine the cosmic pressure that caused this volcano to erupt, notice the Truth that feels alive to you right now. There’s probably something welling up that you feel is important to define. Some statement you need to make or some stand you need to take.

In the symbol, the lava finds its direction with the help of gravity. It flows down the volcano. The 2019 Sagittarius Full Moon is in a square to foggy, intuitive Neptune. Find your Truth by connecting with inner Yes and inner No. There is clarity somewhere in there, but you may need to do some self-reflection in order to connect with it. We respond naturally to the pull of gravity. Receive the pull of your higher self. Instead of forcing your way to your Truth, get quiet and notice what feels expansive. Go slowly towards your Yes.

At every Full Moon, two opposite signs are activated. This Moon in Sagittarius reflects the full light of the Sun in Gemini. Gemini energy is curious and lively. Gemini sends out scouts to find information, which Sagittarius then distills into the Truth. In the symbol, the lava explores the surface of the volcano. There are many directions to take. You are exploring. But which True pathway will you choose? How will you decipher between the many thoughts, opinions and facts that you are collecting?

In the end you will go your own way. You will need to. But for a moment you may flow in many directions at once. Let it be okay and gather information as you go.

So why did this volcano erupt in the first place? Where is all the pressure coming from? This Full Moon is intense because you are processing a build-up of pressure while at the same time trying to define your direction. The pressure comes from a slew of planets hovering along the Nodal axis. The Nodal axis represents your connection with your Future and Past selves. What have you learned and what will you learn? Where are you headed? What is the big stuff that you are here to do? All of these questions are highlighted by Mercury and Mars in Cancer conjunct the South Node while opposite Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn conjunct the North Node.

You’re being asked to restructure your future while putting thought and energy into nurturing your inner child. Remember, this is the pressure that caused the eruption. Something has to change so that you can best align with your future self and your Truth.

The easiest way to orient yourself along the Cancer / Capricorn axis is to think about how you will be a better mother and father to yourself. If you were a little child, how would you parent yourself? Would you live your life differently? How would you structure your day and how would you love yourself better?

Use this question as the key that helps you deal with the pressure. Answer it so that you can set yourself up connect with your North Node purpose. Allow the volcano to erupt. Acknowledge the pressure and make appropriate changes that support you. Then you’ll find it much easier to distill the multitude of information that’s swirling into the Truth that guides you forward. You’ll know exactly where you need to flow.

Full Moon square Neptune
The attic hides treasures.
Your intuition can lead you to gold. You need to follow it through the trapdoor and past the cobwebs. When you disappear into the shadows you’ll meet with gossamer guidance. Not all is as it seems. That means that you might be confused about which door to open. Keep tuning in and eventually you’ll be able to trust your inner guidance.

Full Moon conjunct Jupiter
Batting a beach ball high into the air.
Find the most positive thing you know and then push it higher. Optimism is a key. Gratitude is a key. Generosity is a key. You can play with these ideas and watch as your vibration gets higher and higher. There is fun to experience. Let you enthusiasm take you there.

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.

Jumping on a trampoline.

Construction equipment.

The tallest plants in the garden.

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.

Sorting silverware.

A marching band.

A kitten mews.

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.

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

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
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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Be very gentle and loving with yourself and find a new way of thinking about your life and potential.

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
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. Once you see the big picture, zoom in and focus on the details. Motivate yourself to follow through on each one. This is how you will revamp your reality.

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.

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?

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 …
