ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Influenced by the TEN OF SWORDS
Music: In Spite of Ourselves (feat. Iris DeMent) – John Prine, Iris DeMent, In My Head – Sasha Skare
What is your most hidden truth? What is that dark truth you have created fear around in your head? Time to face it with this extra thinking time you’ve been given. So whether you want to or not, it’s coming out. And maybe you can’t even explain it fully. Try. Talk about it. Give it your all and then give it away. And the pain is removed. Presto. May is taking that fearful story out of your head. Oh Aries, you have so much love in there to give. You are going to find another way to love. And you need to keep loving through this. Don’t stop. Your partner is hurting you – love them through their sorrow. You are in your head about your last painful relationship? Love yourself through the painful truths you see about yourself from that relationship. LOVE YOURSELF. You and I both know you can be a quick learner when you want, so let’s get this shift going for you! Kundalini or time in the mountains feels brilliant if either fit into your Corona viewpoint for May. Circle May 18th/19th for a little gift.
Final Thought: “Each second we live in a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that never was before and never will be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has been another child like you—your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michaelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.” – Pablo Casals
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)
Influenced by the EIGHT OF CUPS
Music: Wagon Wheel – Old Crow Medicine Show, Liberation – Original Mix – Harold van Lennep, Morning Song – Babe Rainbow
Taurus, what is the thing that lies deep in your soul that you want to share more of with the rest of us? Or what was the thing your mom saw in you before you could even fully see it yourself? Use this time to remember that life is not about perfection and efficiency. Take pleasure in the meandering path to find the purposeful piece of your heart that will sparkle and change everyone you meet. It is that piece which will change your life forever and, by loving yourself and loving others, that little piece will grow in you so that you won’t ever have to search for it again. It will explode in every hug you give (when we’re allowed to, of course!). It will change the way you work. It will change the way you love. It will change you for the better. Give some extra loving time to your mom or mother figure this month. And if you can try to schedule some sunrise moments – you won’t be disappointed. Circle May 16th (or nearby) for a moment of emotional clearing.
Final Thought: “Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand – and melting like a snowflake.” – Marie Beyon Ray
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by THE FOOL
Music: Charlie Stone – Jamie Berry, Robert Edwards, Andrew Griffiths, Octavia Rose, Finding Parking – Joey Pecoraro
Oh adventurer (who prob feels less adventurous in quarantine). Here you go Gemini. What you have felt overwhelmed, annoyed or off kiltered by is about to shift. And you have some choice in this! I think the choice for you also involves you speaking up for what you know you deserve. How do you see yourself working with more joy? i.e. I don’t need that office. I’ll work remotely longer now. The next job I take is going to give me the freedom to speak my brilliant ideas rather than hold me back! Perhaps it’s in your relationships—you know what you need to make you feel better. YOU CAN GET IT NOW! Call it in. There is a magic to saying and seeing it. Your genius is working for you now. It feels to me like an – ALEXA PLAY ME THIS moment. Say it loud and clear and Alexa is at your service. Innocence is your friend this month. If you have children – give them more of you this month. Zoom with friend’s kids even. They will keep you connected to your innocent playful dreamy side.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Influenced by NINE OF WANDS
Music: Candy – Paolo Nutini, Calor – Conchita Velasco
Trust and movement are the words to keep in your heart this month, Cancer. You are so close you can taste it. But you might even feel close on one level and the way it all comes to together is going to surprise you how it’s even MORE than what you think. YES TIS TRUE. Trust it. Things are going to move forward for you faster and bigger. Your job now is to trust in this truth. And when I say trust that means – no pushing. Trusting is gentle. Trusting is holding appreciation and understanding. You are so bright and big. Let yourself soak in the wisdom of the trees. They will remind you of your roots and potential to grow higher than you’ve ever imagined. Trees might wait ages for that dreamy soul to come sit with them and love them for their true nature—so if you are waiting for that love or to feel that kind of love, trust that too. May is more about self love for you. Get the love you seek from yourself first. Also I see a move or bigger movement coming for you—stop stressing about the other place. That is coming. May 13th is a shift for you. Give love for that completed lesson!
Final Thought: “Opportunities, many times, are so small that we glimpse them not and yet they are often the seeds of great enterprises. Opportunities are also everywhere and so you must always let your hook be hanging. When you least expect it, a great fish will swim by.” – Og Mandino
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
Influenced by 3 OF WANDS
Music: Uninvited – Mallrat, Everybody’s Talkin’ – From “Midnight Cowboy” – Harry Nilsson, We Gotta Get Out Of This Place – UK Single Version – The Animals
Who is this person who has such a hold on you Leo? Not the time for that! You and I both know what this is about. Stop making it about the other. This is about you right now. The seeker in you has such a broad view and understands what lesson is trying to fully be acknowledged and learned here. You are really stepping into this Corona uplevel – you’re ready for it more than most of us. May is all about you really accepting this higher perspective and clarity. Get ready to see your potential in shifting the world. You don’t need anyone else to see this for you. You just need to let your soul connect you to it. Don’t worry about how it’s all unfolding but your gift is in your perspective and we all could use more of that. Also I keep feeling a BIG move coming! For many of you this could mean a different city or a very different kind of living. For now just focus on your growth and think about potentials without needing anything specific to make sense. May 19th/20th feels brimming with possibility for you!
Final Thought: “I believe that all wisdom consists in caring immensely for a few right things, and not caring a straw about the rest.” – John Buchan
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Influenced by 3 OF PENTACLES
Music: Pulled by the Weather – Valley Queen, Atomic Cocktail – Slim Gaillard, 12 Etudes, Op.25: No.9 In G Flat “Butterfly Wings” – Frédéric Chopin, Maurizio Pollini, Keep Breathing – Ingrid Michaelson
Virgo, animals and children are the theme of May for you. Let them fill you with all the love and beauty you could ever need. And the strongest message I get is to tell you that your birthday time is going to be the best time of the year. So breathe your way till then! Also with that breathwork or meditation, there’s a strong element of knowing coming through you – stronger than ever before. Trust what you are finding out about yourself. Keep creating and working now but know you are just dipping your toe into how this shift plays out for your work. You are on the right path and keep going but let life show you the way. If you’re looking for work, keep following the creative pull. Your creative channel is off the charts! And with all of this again, trust in your own knowing. May 10 or near there is a special day for you!
Final Thought: “Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell ‘em, ‘Certainly, I can!’ Then get busy and find out how to do it.” – Theodore Roosevelt
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
Influenced by THE CHARIOT
Music: One of One – duendita, I Want You To Love Me – Fiona Apple, Level of Concern – Twenty One Pilots
I keep getting the pull of extremes with you Libra! Like one day everything feels like it couldn’t be more perfect and the next you’re like, Why Me? And the truth of the cards is your every wish is coming true, you are just now in the in-between of it. First off, there’s something you feel you are finally ready for – you know what you want in your career. You finally know you are ready for that baby. You know you want that next magical adventure. Whatever it is, the message here is that in order to fully accept this next level of living, you have to know yourself well. There is no need to convince anyone or prove yourself, because you KNOW so deeply for yourself. IN come Corona. Thank you! Corona is going to help you learn to hold your ground – lending a clarity that both calms and energizes those around you. Imagine that. You’ll be able to walk in a room and feel the energy shift with your presence. Whoa, I almost just gasped at feeling that. Time to get to work in owning this shift for you, first! Weirdly the color blue feels like a good place to help create the calmest grounding for you now. Take that how you may. May 26 is my favorite day for you – within a day or two!
Final Thought: “If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity, it would be this: expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold your head high. Look it squarely in the eye, and say, ‘I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.’ Then repeat to yourself the most comforting words of all. ‘This too will pass.’” – Ann Landers
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Influenced by STAR
Music: Chameleon – PNAU, Issues – Julia Michaels, Turn My Heart Around – Ryan Oxford
Time to ease up Scorpio. You are at a point where one journey ends and another begins. I feel overwhelmed by the enormity of this as I write for you. There’s a part of you that feels this too. Your life is going to change and you want to run screaming into that old comfortable place from where you came. And then that little part that knows you don’t have a choice. It’s time to say goodbye to the old you and prepare for what it means to feel fresh and new and scared and brand new. Yup it’s like you are about to come out of mama’s womb and enter the brand new world. So in this in-between, I BEG of you. Let go. Let go.Let go. Be in the in-between. Just be. In. the. In-between. And keep it pure now. Be in service. At ease. That’s how you can get through May – be there for others. Listen to others. Support others. Also, there’s baby energy around you so you know, get to it. If you want to make a Corona baby, now’s the time! May 13th within a day is your magic sweet spot – no not for the baby just for all you scorpios!
Final Thought: “Cherish your vision; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart. The beauty that forms in your mind. The loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts. If you remain true to them, your world will at last be built.” – James Allen
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 19)
Influenced by DEATH
Music: Lovely Day – Bill Withers, Fireball (feat. John Ryan) – Pitbull, John Ryan
Sweet Jesus Sag, this is your time. Wow, you are throwing out the old you. Or the one that you’ve known the last 20 years. Here’s what I want for you this month. Think back to 20 years ago. I don’t care if you were 2 then. Or 22. Think back 20 years. Who were you? Who was that joyful child or childish adult? What did you love about him or her? What resentment hadn’t been built up? What pain hadn’t even formed? Love and remember THAT you. The one just a little freer. A little less heavy. Because he or she is about to return! And it’s going to flip your life upside down. I keep getting that this month is going to blow your mind. And for some of you the release could be painful, for others you might lose your mind in joy. Don’t stress the process, just burn off the last 20 years. LET IT BURN. YES! AND very important here, don’t succumb to your base desires of extremes in the process. STAY STRONG. Here we go Sag! May 25th within a few days feels extra special!
Final Thought: “This is the true joy in life – being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances.” – George Bernard Shaw
CAPRICORN (Dec 20 – Jan 19)
Influenced by THE HANGED MAN
Music: disco tits – Tove Lo, Mad World – Tears For Fears
Capricorn, this month seems to be about directing you back to your heart. Perhaps there’s a part of you that has been feeling the outsider. The misunderstood. You can stay stuck as the outsider who is misunderstood. Or as you feel all your blood rushing into your heart (as in the hanged man), you feel a spiritual awakening. You see a new way forward that includes you being truly SEEN because of how you were/are an outsider. The month of May is a moment for you – perhaps having an entrepreneurial vision or a gut on what your life might look like if you changed this view of you and how it looks in the real world. If I can emphasize anything this month it is SURRENDER and let that blood keep rushing to your heart! May 21st is your day.
Final Thought: “Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?” – Eric Allenbaugh
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Influenced by ACE OF SWORDS
Music: O Superman – Laurie Anderson, One Down – Kenny Knight
Learning to love is learning to let go. That’s my mantra for you for May, Aquarius. You have something so big coming SOON. You have been seeing this in your dreams, feeling this in your heart, knowing in your most brilliant mind. But you haven’t let go yet. So now, May helps you let go. Corona forces you to let go a little more. LET GO. This new beginning for some of you might be about conceiving a child, for others calling in the relationship, and for others the gift of their soul purpose gifted to the world. Whatever your dream reality is that seems to consume you – love it, see it, feel it, and let go. You don’t need to make it happen. It’s happening. It’s coming. Go spend more time in nature this month. Just go outside in the backyard and bask in the sun. Go for a walk around the neighborhood and feel nature. And May 8th – that weekend is a highlight!
Final Thought: “I believe that life is given to us so we may grow in love, and I believe that God is in me as the sun is in the color and fragrance of a flower – the light in my darkness, the voice in my silence.” – Helen Keller
PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Influenced by THE TOWER
Music: Dance Monkey – Tones And I, Mi Gente (feat. Beyoncé) – J Balvin, Willy William, Beyoncé
It’s time to leave the chaos. And if you haven’t been able to see where you’ve been trying to fit a square peg in a circle hole, a wave is about to knock you over and show you. Everything is shifting for your life to completely change FOR THE BETTER. You aren’t meant to live a small life and we are putting you on course, Pisces. You cannot and should not try to control what’s happening around you. This whole shift feels like you are stepping so deep into your purpose, you’ll accept the chaos of the change. However absurd or emotional, you will feel how profound the change is. Writing feels powerful for you now – whether for yourself or for the world to read. Please write it all down. And look at how the words might need to change to help change your story! And let go of the fear of having it be weird or not normal – that’s the best part. May 24th is magical for you. Circle that please! Within a day!
Final Thought: “Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot.” – D. H. Lawrence
