ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Influenced by the KNIGHT OF CUPS

Music: Is This Love – Remix – Bob Marley & The Wailers, LVNDSCAPE, Bolier

Love. Love life. Love. Your heart is open and full of love this month. What a way to start the year, Aries! You feel like a teenager—innocent, pure and sincere crushing on your partner or flirtation. Go ahead and show it! This month is not about holding back. If you’re in a relationship, plan a playdate! Use this loving time to talk about where you’d like to see the relationship go. If you’re single, get ready to be courted or to court. You can’t lose this month. This is also a sign of falling back in love with your life and valuing all you’ve been given. Rose quartz will expand your love—keep some near your bed to tap deeper into love.

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)

Influenced by the DEATH REVERSED

Music: Blood & Muscle – Lissie

How can you learn and grow from past pains? Now is the time to break free from recurring negative patterns by meditating to discover a lesson you might learn. Upsetting situations can be experiences that help us learn truths about ourselves and others. Be open to understanding the role you may have played in accepting negative patterns. However, don’t blame yourself—instead assume responsibility and let it move through you. This month is your time to break free! If you can, take a little trip to get out of your surroundings so you can see from new perspective. If you cant get away, give yourself a weekend for you—yoga, hiking, meditating etc.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20)

Influenced by REVERSED QUEEN OF CUPS

Music: Lay It On Me – Melvv Remix – Vance Joy, Melvv

The reversed Queen of Cups reminds us to treat ourselves with love and compassion. Regardless of your past circumstances, you are worthy of love and respect. There may also be a literal woman in your life who has turned on you,  whether it be jealousy or her own insecurities, don’t take things personally! You have plenty of other relationships that you can give your time and energy right now. You are setting yourself up for success at work and putting some extra effort in with the boss or an important client or coworker that will be worth it!

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Influenced by 6 OF SWORDS

Music: A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall – Laura Marling, Flute and gong decent C’ Earth – Cherub, Aaron Horn, Tim Wheater

Cancer, oh cancer! Be gentle with yourself! You have been through a LOT in 2017 and you’ve really been pushing yourself. Now is the time to rest. Let 2017 start with some time for you. Your heart is finally mending some old traumas that were triggered recently. Get extra sleep now and be careful about who you surround yourself with, sweet sensitive creature that you are. Retreat—get energy-work done, do a sound bath, eat healthy clean foods. Go on an actual retreat if you can, or plan one. Give to you now.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)

Influenced by SEVEN OF PENTACLES

Music: Bad Girls – $wan$ Remix – Donna Summer

Leo, opportunity is ripe now. You are THRIVING in your career. Say YES to the offer, new client or work project that is presented to you. You are starting off the year IN YOUR POWER. Last year was about getting you ready for the success you’ll be handed this year. You built up resilience and strength in some tough times last year—part of your lesson was not giving up too much of your power, too much people pleasing or perhaps codependency. Now you can assert what you want with your time and money.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Influenced by EIGHT OF PENTACLES REVERSED

Music: Better Than I Used To Be – Mat Kearney, AFSHeeN

Breath and release. You’ve been feeling stuck or held down by a situation, but this month is about surrendering and letting it go. You are experiencing massive healing this month and it’s going to open you up. If you lost someone or lost yourself to a situation, you can breathe easy knowing you can finally let it go. And that’s going to free up some important space for someone or something else to come in. Get some amber to wear or keep with you as Amber helps connect and heal the past while also brightening your mood.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)

Influenced by 6 OF PENTACLES

Music: Last To Leave (feat. Caroline Ailin) – Louis The Child, Caroline Ailin ThunderYoung Dumb & Broke (with Khalid) – Medley – Imagine Dragons, Khalid

Oooh libra, you have an offer coming to you! $$. Work is stepping up, you see how you are finally ready for the next big move in your career. Could it be that big promotion or the project that puts you center stage in your area of expertise? This month is the bone being thrown, now you just need to catch it and run with it. Your ego may want to second guess insights, but just trust your gut and get ready to run with it.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Influenced by 5 OF WANDS

Music: There Are Many Ways To Say I Love You – Sylvan Esso, Count To Five – Rhye

The 5 of wands can be about competition—now is the time to believe in yourself more than ever. Big changes are on the horizon, Scorpio, and you are showing yourself and the world that you’re up to the challenge. For some, this could be a change or shift in career. Big stuff. But January is still the month of growth spurts so go ahead and power through them. If you work in a field of helping others, you will see how you are flourishing and growing. You have expansive energy working through your intentions to bring healing to your loved ones and clients. Allow yourself to heal your stuff and you’ll see how much easier it is for you to help others!

And work is about opportunity, but not the hustle—just the yes, show up, let’s go. Spend a weekend on water if you can,  on a boat, fishing on a river, or just a walk along the ocean. Keep it all balanced. Welcome back to your lightness of being.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 – Jan 19)

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Influenced by 5 OF PENTACLES REVERSED

January is all about feeling safer and more secure in your circumstances Aquarius. You are ready to open up about what you want and need in relationship. Take that risk and be vulnerable. You feel renewed and confident in what you deserve and desire. Not only is January about passion for you, but it’s also a big one for your purpose. An enthusiasm you’ve never experienced is infusing your projects—perhaps one big meaningful one in particular. Devote yourself with this motivated inspiration.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Influenced by STRENGTH

You are in your power this month Pisces. You are being noticed as a leader more than ever. Use this power wisely. How can you inspire and create change with your wisdom? Be an example—take a strong stance in your community, push for some critical change in our government, sign up to lead a charity project! This month is going to be a lot of work for you, but you can handle it! You are tapped with an understanding of people and the universe in a way that if we all could just operate with half of your virtue the world would be a much better place. Show us the way.
