ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Influenced by the KING OF PENTACLES
Music: Thieves – Jeremy Loops Woman – Karen O, Danger Mouse Nothing Compares 2 U – Lissie
Keep facing your true north Aries. Your channel is become more and more clear this month and this is going to call in some dynamic creative energy like you’ve never felt ever before! Use this month to keep clearing. It’s more important than ever that you aren’t trying to fix everyone else—the way you can help them is by keeping yourself clear and light. That light will shine to help all the others in your life to get clear as well. If you want more love, love yourself. If you want less anger, don’t be angry. If you feel judged, judge less. Don’t overthink any of it. You can really see your own power if you practice these simple tricks. And that power will be used even more powerfully later this year. So every time you’re like, but that should’ve happened already or you find yourself comparing to others—remember, next step forward. One foot in front of the other. Clearing the channel.
Final Thought: “We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” – Buddha
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)
Influenced by the THE HANGED MAN
Music: Rather Be – Pentatonix Idris – Dauwd Guiding Light – Mumford & Sons
You are so perfectly exactly where you are supposed to be Taurus. Don’t try to jump too many steps ahead and also don’t question the choices you’ve made in the past, especially in the near past. It’s all happening for you. It’s not a bad idea for you to be assessing and reassessing the options for your future—again as long as you don’t get ahead of yourself. Really the hanged man implies a deeply rooted surrender – a reminder to trust this is exactly where you are meant to be. As you fall deeper into this surrender, you may notice how your heart is cracking open. This crack may feel like a poke or a gigantic lash in your heart, either way I urge you to notice it and let it break you open. With each crack, you bleed a little but then feel the love and compassion pour from your heart, or from another, cross your entire being. Can you task yourself with the job of spiritual growth each day? Perhaps 15 minutes every morning—a meditation, a journaling, a cracking open task!? If you are troubled by home or location, I again stress you are exactly where you are supposed to be, more is landing to make sense of where you are going! One more task, with every worry that pokes you regarding finances, give something away. Make a donation, go shopping for an elderly neighbor, or tip your delivery person double the standard. This will remind you to live in abundance which is what you are calling in!
Final Thought: “Life is not a dress rehearsal. Everyday, you should have at least one exquisite moment.” – Sally Karioth
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by STRENGTH
Music: Pharaoh – 1987 Remix – flora cash, 1987 Basic Instinct – Thomas Jack Remix – Thomas Jack, The Acid Minimum – Charlie Cunningham
Gemini, I get the sense you are going through a rite of passage this month. The most important thing as you move through this initiation is to really own your personal power—be confident and in love with yourself. Because your superpower will be to shift the negative vibes into loving ones by being the mirror to reflect to other that love. Overpower with your superpower. Your mind could run with questions now and rightfully so. The mind wants to direct the direction and steer the relationship, the projects – but instead just use your superpower. Reflect out love and confidence – that is your steering wheel. I would add to really take care of yourself this month, more than ever. STAY HEALTHY and STAY SAFE. This is not to plant fear because you know your superpower, but that superpower also knows that like any gift, you must humbly accept that it works best when you use to help others and not blind yourself from reality.
Final Thought: “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” – Jimmy Dean
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Influenced by NINE OF PENTACLES
Music: Nature Of The Beast (feat. Portugal. The Man & The Last Artful, Dodgr) – Black Thought, Portugal. The Man, The Last Artful, Dodgr Aloha Ke Akua – Nahko And Medicine For The PeopleNdiri Ndanogio Niwe – Mbiri Young Stars Time (feat. Rhye) – SG Lewis, Rhye
Answer the call this month Cancer. Follow the signs. Your purpose is aligning this year in a way you could never have imagined and this month you can feel it happening. This is your YES month. No more questioning, just accept what is being offered. It’s all for you now. You don’t need to know the bigger plan. This isn’t about the “perfect” job/person/home/family. No. This is about the NEXT STEP towards your future and you have a big one this month. So please I beg, say yes. And when it feels like a mistake or an accident – MORE YES. When it makes no sense, MORE yes. Sometimes what we resist is actually what is actually our destiny or our medicine. Noodle on that Cancer…. what we resist is exactly what is ours. Go listen to your music here and let it pull you into a state for accepting. Go listen and I bet you a sign shows up within 24 hours. Maybe a little one but I can guarantee the big one is coming too. MORE YES.
Final Thought: “I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.” – Jack London
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
Influenced by KING OF CUPS
Music: That’s How It Feels – Soul Clan Bacall – Blue Noir Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses – Temple Bar Remix – U2
You begin this month with such an open heart and nurturing soul! If you don’t feel that, know you are on the brink of it. If you do, please share with the rest of us. You have this gift of rejuvenating others and you will see how powerful this is now. Slow and steady is the way forward. You are like a fairy tapping us all with your magical light. Just one tap can do wonders. And don’t you worry Leo, you’ve got some major taps coming at you too. Best to do is just keep tapping without worrying when you get yours. Your brightness cannot be ignored now—we see you. And when you are feeling a little vulnerable or seeking of outside validation, that’s okay too. Just give yourself the power of taking care of you. As a kid, what did your Mom do that comforted and empowered you? Do that for you! Buy yourself a present, get yourself a carton of your favorite ice cream, give yourself a day of you—watch movies on the couch and cuddle with an animal! You won’t need much if you are using that magic wand of yours because with each tap, you are shot back fairy dust for you! Oh and truly let that vulnerability define you this month too. See how it feels to be really honest and go deeper when it feels like it might not be okay—this works as a magic tap as well! Look at you!
Final Thought: “Your world is a living expression of how you are using and have used your mind.” – Earl Nightingale
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Influenced by QUEEN OF PENTACLES
Music: Ohio – filous Remix – Damien Jurado, filous AUATC – Bon Iver Where Did U Come From? – Jennings Couch Stuck Under The Surface – Sam Johnson
Well, first things first Virgo—stop trying to figure out how to make more money or make money at all. It is time to change the story. This month’s story is the story of you. You as a whole. You as mother, father, brother, sister, lover. You as caretaker of others. You in your divine feminine. You owning and holding onto everything you hold near and dear. You being brave enough to think through everything without rushing into the future yet. You are being called to be more, not to accept less. Also, as you explore your story, how can you focus on the parts of your story that really MADE you? The parts that broke you. The chapters that embarrassed you. Those are the ones we all love. The chapters that captivated us because you messed up. The parts that showed your humanness. Those “mistakes” are what leaders are made of. It’s time to embrace the struggles, the grooves, and the peaks.
Final Thought: “Often I say, learn the art of love. What I really mean is: learn the art of removing all that hinders love. It is a negative process. It is like digging a well – you go on removing layers of earth, stones, rocks and then suddenly there is water. The water was always there as an undercurrent. When you remove all barriers, the water is available. So with love. Love is the undercurrent of your being. It is flowing, but there are many rocks, much earth to be removed. That what I mean when I say: learn the art of love. It is really not learning love but un-learning the ways of un-love.” – Swami Chaitanaya Keerti
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
Influenced by 2 OF WANDS
Music: Kothbiro – Ayub Ogada Ooh Ahh (My Life Be Like) (feat. Toby Mac) – Grits, TobyMac Voz de las Montañas – con Minük – Nicola Cruz, Minuk
Oh my starseed Libra, look at you now. You have some big choices in the making and my biggest advice is to not rush those choices. You cannot go wrong as long as you keep asking for what you know you want… and here’s the important part—while being open to seeing and doing things differently! That’s all. Then let the miracles and support show up for you. I love to say that we make our own rules. So for you, I want this project to happen and if this partner will see it with my creative eyes, I will trust that the universe will align the pieces in our contract so that it is fair for everyone. And if not, then another partner will show up. Rather than, give me this much money or no. Keep letting the lord, the universe, your angels bring you exactly what you need and want. You can have it all! Just keep following what lights you up and trust in your path!
Final Thought: “Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” – William Jennings Bryan
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Influenced by WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Music: Umza – Montoya Colors – Black Pumas Sophie and the Hacker – Parov Stelar La dispute – Yann Tiersen, Jeroen van Veen
Gosh darn it’s all happening for you. And right now, you may not want to agree with me but that’s because there is some final deep sh*t cleaning going on in your soul, clearing negative ancestral patterns. You are healing and freeing yourself from living the life that has been continued on from past pains and traumas—some yours, most not. And guess what? You don’t have to do the work now, you just have to keep LETTING IT GO. Every time you feel the block, the negativity, the pain, shake it off. Or what has been happening for me, it’s like a big sloppy wet paintbrush that begins wiping over my mind this white bright light. The head clears, the pain dissipates and then I ask for more. Keep painting away all that pain, that darkness, that past. You deserve to feel this light. You deserve to let go of the past. So first, do all this. Then know the rest of this month is bringing you deeper into your destiny than you’ve ever felt before. Creatively I see you diving in—yes please. DO IT! Bring us your gift!
Final Thought: “In life you can never be too kind or too fair; everyone you meet is carrying a heavy load, when you go through your day expressing kindness and courtesy to all you meet, you leave behind a feeling of warmth and good cheer, and you help alleviate the burdens everyone is struggling with.” – Brian Tracy
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 19)
Influenced by SIX OF CUPS
Music: Become a Mountain – Dan Deacon Bedford Falls – ford. Better Not Look Down – Single Version – B.B. King
Sag, as cheesy as it sounds. January is ALL LOVE for you. I get double wildcards next to love for you. That’s never happened in my readings before. My head is tingling and the song is saying—it’s the chance of a lifetime. You seem to be rising up in a way that is unimaginable to me. Your superpower is indescribable, but yes this is a gift. You are moving up. Next level. Another dimension. You have overcome so much and now your integrity, your growth, your light is being rewarded. Lord knows you deserve this. Go listen to BB King. He’s got the advice for you. My only addition is— your mirror is strong now so when you struggle to be ALL LOVE, keep that in mind. MIRROR. Mirror the love you want!
Final Thought: “An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.” – Ancient Chinese Belief
CAPRICORN (Dec 20 – Jan 19)
Influenced by KNIGHT OF PENTACLES
Music: Pluto – Sleeping At Last Apparently – Random Rab Family Affair – Mary J. Blige By The River – Klingande, Jamie N Commons
Do something different. Does that scare you Cap? What does that statement mean for you? I cannot tell you because I keep getting that you are the oracle now. This doesn’t mean quit your job and become a psychic. But it does mean you are getting answers for yourself now in a very real, very powerful way. And what you are doing different—well it is like a rainbow for the planet. So please don’t ignore your oracle. Listen. I believe these songs will be powerful in connecting those messages. Start by listening there. Or perhaps you already know, then take this as a sign to follow where you are being guided. I will add that the do something different does not mean drastic life changes. You are listening now and taking it all one day at a time. I believe the guidance coming for you will lead you. If I were you, I’d make sure to journal every day.
Final Thought: “True wisdom lies in gathering the precious things out of each day as it goes by.” – E.S. Bouton
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Influenced by QUEEN OF WANDS
Music: Wherever is Your Heart – Brandi Carlile Home – LCD Soundsystem
Aquarius, a divine plan is being laid for you now. I suppose it is the age of Aquarius now, so wow, just know you are being guided by this plan with an extra training than the rest of us. And your best way forward? Live life to the fullest. You are Dorothy in that part of the Wizard of Oz when the yellow brick road lights up to show her where to go. It does that right? Or did I imagine it? I see you on that path and it lighting up one block at a time, teasing you to follow. And it’s as if for the first time in your life, everything feels so right, so simple, so inexplicably lit up. And well, like Dorothy, you are on your own. Of course with magical creatures, new and old friends showing up to help you, but really this is YOUR adventure. It’s all about you in January divine one. This is your house that landed here to bring you adventure. Don’t be afraid to face it without worrying about partnership.
Final Thought: “So many gods, so many creeds, so many paths that wind and wind, while just the art of being kind is all the sad world needs.” – Ella Wheeler Wilcox
PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Influenced by 6 OF SWORDS
Music: This Is How We Walk on the Moon – Arthur Russell Pulaski at Night – Andrew Bird
Retreat. That’s the word of the month for you Pisces. I know, I know. We’ve all been on retreat for 2020 but this feels really important for you in January. Things are changing at a cellular level for you. This is learning in the depths of understanding that we as humans cannot comprehend yet. So go—give yourself this time to retreat. Let yourself download. For many of you, you’ll be taken somewhere for this. GO! There is nothing to miss or avoid now. This month is rethreading you. You may notice you have to change your diet or exercise patterns. Listen to your body. This transformation will probably bring up some childhood stuff too. Notice. Let it all come up and out. Take as much pressure off yourself for anything but healing sweet pisces. And let your dreams be your teacher. Wake up and write or at the very least notice what is happening in there. You are like a special kind of unicorn/alien to me this month and it’s beautiful so appreciate all of what is happening for you! And goodness rest and call your Mom as much as you need. This feels healing too!
Final Thought: “If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.” – Alex Noble
