ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Influenced by the THE DEVIL
Music: Los Ageless – St. Vincent
Free yourself Aries! This month is your time to become pure, natural and one with yourself again—spontaneous and original. December is clearing away all that is holding you back before you BECOME the next iteration of your story. Burn off the old, allowing the new to enter. What is unhealthy in your life and how can we cleanse it? Who is making you see the negative? What pattern or bad habit do you need to switch off – that thing you do that you know is keeping you stuck? Time to stop it. Create space in your home for the new you! Perhaps a meditation corner? Decorate your bathtub with candles and flowers? Take a break from your routine! Add something to new to spruce it up when you go back!

Music: Do It Again – Steely Dan
Like light, whose essence is eternal, you have integrity. This year for you has been the struggle to move to the next phase of who you are in relationship. December is about taking a break from trying to figure things out or make things happen. You are standing up in all your glory as YOU just you. Be the light, the solid, strong dependable pillar you know you are for so many! Focus on that awareness this month. Stand in your own strength impenetrable to outside influences. You will feel your light shine brighter than ever before and you’ll forget what has been wracking your brain. How else can you expand this awareness? Notice your dreams this month. You’ll see tremendous strides in what is processing through your subconscious!

Influenced by 2 OF SWORDS
Cancer you are born an emotional creature and we love this about you. This month we see another side to you. You are tapping into a new kind of energy—detached, non judgmental, cool, and centered. It’s as if you are watching yourself from a distance. You are rising about the jumble and confusion of your thoughts. The new detachment will help you see what you need to do. And as for your emotions, you’ll get to use them in dance, in the physical. Take a dance class, do yoga, or try a sound-bath to get your chakras aligned—anyway you can express yourself artistically!

Preserve the things in your life that are important—family, home, shelter and security and your physical health. Take care of the material concerns. And then you can use the magic wand to start tapping what needs some sparkle. As you create those sparks, you’ll feel closer to understanding what’s next. You are coming to the end of some hardship.
