ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Influenced by the 3 OF SWORDS
Music: Don’t Blame Me – Patrice Rushen, fuck, i’m lonely (with Anne-Marie) – from “13 Reasons Why: Season 3” – Lauv, Anne-Marie
Aries—give your mind a break this month. You aren’t going to figure anything out until you get yourself in a better place. And for goodness sake, stop blaming yourself or thinking that others are blaming you. What have you been neglecting in yourself? Try giving your heart a little attention now—more hugs, less thoughts. Take yourself to the movies where you can have a good cry or binge watch a show and let yourself eat ice cream and feel all the feels. New possibilities await you but the only way to get to them is through the heart of the battle.
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.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)
Influenced by the SEVEN OF PENTACLES
Music: Let’s Fall in Love for the Night – FINNEAS, Taurus – Spirit
Oh Taurus, do not give up hope just because you feel you haven’t found exactly what you wanted. You don’t have the payoff you imagined you would by now—fine. You are not quite where you want to be, but a true commitment to yourself and career is beginning to show dividends! Let’s focus on those dividends. What I am meant to tell you is that your continued effort is essential for success to be realized. Instead of focusing on what hasn’t quite landed, why not gather your favorite friends and share in the experience and perhaps even in their wins. You’d be surprised, when you share in another’s joy, it can remind your soul that you are ready to feel your own.
Final Thought: “Wealth is not measured by dollars and cents but by the love we make, the laughter we enjoy, the meals we share, the dreams we experience and the hopes we create. Real connections are our most precious treasures, whether they are with those that share our orbit or with our true and humble selves.” – Amy Georgette
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by 7 OF CUPS
Music: Work – Charlotte Day Wilson, My Only Swerving – El Ten Eleven
Gemini, do not turn away from potentially good opportunities. This month, it’s so important that you explore everything that’s out there. It’s about showing you are willing to get creative with possibility. It means you have to be willing to work for it. The cards show that you know exactly what you want—follow those wants and see how you can creatively fill them in all areas of your life. Do you need to work harder at your relationship or force yourself to open up the dating pool a bit more? Are you willing to take on an extra project at work in order to get to fill your creative spirit? Or do you need to explore what another job might be able to offer?
Final Thought: “Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, ‘You owe me.’ Look what happens with a love that that, it lights the whole sky.” – Hafiz
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Influenced by PAGE OF CUPS
Music: Tous les garçons et les filles – Slow – Françoise Hardy, Water Fountain – Tune-Yards
Cancer, your primary focus this month should be loving and appreciating the people in your life right now. If you can wake up and just be grateful for the people who have gotten you to where you are now – you WIN! Anything else, is going to confuse you. Don’t try and figure out where to go from here, just be grateful for where you’re at. And If you do that, by the end of the month, you’ll be given a gift. Channel your inner child. Remember when you used to wake and all you could think about was going to school to see your friends and favorite teacher? I see how my daughter wakes up and it’s like life is just beginning—she is singing and looks at her little stuffed animals with pure joy that she gets to play for a whole day! Channel that! This is what calls in something very special for you. For some of you, a new love. Or perhaps a baby! Or just a newer deeper love with the one you are with!
Final Thought: “Our friends interpret the world and ourselves to us, if we take them tenderly and truly.” – Amos Bronson Alcott
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
Influenced by THE MOON
Music: I Wanna Go – Summer Heart, Wifey – Qveen Herby
Leo, you have some deep healing happening this month. Woowhee. It’s coming up and out. And thank God you have such a beautiful support system around you—helping to hold you up and transition you out of this. This healing is setting you up for a big step forward into a next life chapter. But for now, just let this healing overtake you. And if you are feeling wronged by anyone in your life, now is the time to forgive and release. There is no need to try and force them to be a certain way, instead turn your attention to the people in your life who really truly see and appreciate you. I can’t tell you it’s going to be easy but I can say that you are going to feel like a stronger, better version of yourself at the end of it!
Final Thought: “Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.” – George Sand
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Influenced by WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Music: Obsession – Joywave, Joyride – SONIA, Levitate – The Palms
Virgo! Can you just relax a minute? Stop thinking it’s the end of the world because things haven’t been perfect. The wheel of fortune is about to change direction and begin turning in your favor! Wait for it. This is the work of what some may call fate or destiny. I just know; it feels really good and you are SO close. This change is going to shift you into a whole new way of thinking and living. You’ve been feeling blips of it, I bet. But I’m talking about the real change. Where you can live and breathe this way for good. Try to give yourself some extra alone time this month. Sometimes when it’s this close, the last bits of darkness need to release. Spend time with animals and in nature. That confident happy you is coming back—don’t lose hope! Or maybe you feel you’re back—and I’m here to tell you that you’re coming back even bigger and brighter than before!
Final thought: “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” – Jimmy Dean
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
Influenced by HANGED MAN REVERSED
Music: Where Do You Go – YEBBA, Easier – 5 Seconds of Summer
Sweet surrender is the name of the game for you this month, Libra. I know you have ideas of where you think you are going, but please don’t do anything rash now. Surrender. And if you must, begin shaping the plan but please just wait for it. The queen of cups tells me you have a woman or women who are looking out for you now, whether you know it or not. So go to that trusted friend, mother, advisor to talk through some of your thoughts of where to go next. Listen and let them hold space for you as you manifest and prepare for what is coming next for you! Also, please keep a dream journal this month. I think you are going to get some BIG signs and work through some crucial moments there in your sleep. HUM has some great sleep products if you want to some more intention around this sleep work.
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
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Influenced by KING OF PENTACLES REVERSED
Music: If You Didn’t See Me (Then You Weren’t on the Dancefloor) – JR JR, Put a Light On – Generationals, That Was Yesterday – Leon Bridges
Stop making it all about the money and control Scorpio. Can you release that focus just a little bit? Can we just try to focus on the possibilities this month? October is about creative gifts. And also remembering your foundation when things feel rocky. It’s not supposed to be easy now. But you know what can feel easier? When you think about possibility! What might this turn into in the future? What might this little project lead to in my future? Lean into the feminine and let go of that need to push and make happen. Take it day by day.
Final Thought: “Consult not your fears but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do.” – Pope John XXIII
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 19)
Influenced by 5 OF PENTACLES
Music: Never Count On Me – Haywyre, Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door – Bryan Ferry
Sag, there are two very clear messages for you this month. The first is all about playing it like the entrepreneur. You are making choices that creatively inspire you. Focus all your work on the parts that bring you joy and creativity. So if you don’t enjoy your job, throw down on your hobby. All creative work will pay off now so dive in and dive deep. The other message coming through strongly is about a new person coming into your life. Perhaps this is about someone who is going to see your work and support you. Or could this be about a new baby on the way? Or a new love interest. Whoever this new person is, you cannot lose in letting them into your life!
Final Thought: “Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.” – Norman Vincent Peale
CAPRICORN (Dec 20 – Jan 19)
Influenced by THE TOWER REVERSED
Music: Unwritten – Natasha Bedingfield, The Kids Are Coming – Tones and I
Cap, there is no easy way through this except through it. So take a deep breath and go there. Now is the time to dig deep and do that inner work. No one else can do the work for you now; it’s not about another helping you, it’s about you helping yourself. It’s as if you are being shown this blank page saying—figure it out. You are SO CLOSE. The external situation is frustrating but it is showing you who you are and how strong you are and even helping to you show EXACTLY what you want for your future. And the external doesn’t have to equal the internal. You will not have to compromise to get everything you want once you survive this. I keep getting that no one else can help you, only you. And now that you are through—you can see it. You can see it’s coming together.
Final Thought: “How helpless we are, like netted birds, when we are caught by desire.” – Belva Plain
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Influenced by ACE OF SWORDS
Music: Fuck it I love you – Lana Del Rey, Takeaway – The Chainsmokers, ILLENIUM, Lennon Stella
You’ve fought the fight. You’ve been through some really rough patches but I’m excited to tell you this is it. Your new beginning is here. The ace of swords is an omen of great victory! Get ready to get to work. It’s time to go there. You are ready for this. F*ck it—say yes! Life is about to speed up for you. Are you ready to run with things? If you still feel hesitant, my advice is just start choosing. Go with it. Say yes. Let life autocorrect you if the first yes isn’t right. You’ll keep getting redirected and it’ll all come together.
Final Thought: “Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Influenced by THE CHARIOT
Music: Wannabe – Leyya, Got Your Money (feat. Kelis) – Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Kelis, Rich Travali
Pisces, this month is a time of spiritual strength. And it’s important you keep reminding yourself of that. Resist reacting without thinking. Try to check out all details first. There are important matters that need attention. And it’s critical that you are really using that intuition of yours to feel into the reliability of what is being said and presented to you now. It’s also important that you or another are not twisting truths. Really lean on the sacred now. However hard it may be to be fully transparent and honest, that is the way to come out on top now.
Final Thought: “The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.” – Hans Hofmann
