We’re kicking off 2019 the best way we know how—with tarot-inspired horoscopes by Angie Banicki alongside zodiac illustrations from Vetvy.

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Influenced by THE EMPEROR

Music: Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker) – Parliament

You’ve got your eye on the prize, Aries, but life hasn’t handed you the trophy yet. Re-shift your focus. Turn this mother out and dip into your creative forces. You want to land that new job, new client or house but haven’t. Try working on that secret project that won’t get you outside accolades but instead will bring you achievement in your heart! It’s not fair that you’ve been strung along, were promised the raise that hasn’t come or maybe even let go. Whatever happened, you are doubting yourself. Give that up! The cards are here to show you that if you allow your spirit to roar for you, you’ll conquer all obstacles and succeed. You are a protector and leader of others and rest assured that is only getting stronger in you!

Final Thought: “Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved one.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)

Influenced by STRENGTH

Music: Medicated Goo – P.P. Arnold

Taurus, this month there is an emphasis on your health, your physical body and your emotional body. How are your stuck feelings getting caught in your body? Feel into your heart and notice what emotions might be stalling there. Time to let them out, to feel through them. The medicine buddha believes is that all diseases are caused by one of 5 poisons—ignorance, avarice, anger, pride or jealousy. Time to suck the poison out. Do not lose faith in how much healing you contain to shift things and then do not hesitate to reach out for help this month from your tribe!

Final Thought: “Your Soul is requiring you to heal deeper, to elevate past the hurt, to transcend beyond what happened, to let go of who and what no longer serves you, to protect your energy daily, to get the lesson, to master your thoughts and emotions, to forgive yourself and to love yourself unconditionally, And to honor your body temple; all in order to thrive and vibrate higher daily.” – Lalah Delia

GEMINI (May 21- June 20)

Influenced by 3 OF WANDS

Music: Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins) – Father John Misty

Opportunity and possibilities for career advancement can be overwhelming for you this month, Gemini! Try not to get too warbled in your mind trying to figure out how you are going to manage everything. You will. You will ask the right questions and rework things to accommodate all parties. Location may be part of the challenge, but you’re not giving yourself enough credit. You always manage to outwit everyone and spin the story to get exactly what you want—or close enough. So trust that! Be willing to travel. Be willing to work from strange places. Be willing to drag the family along or work more time at home. You’ll find your way!

Final Thought: See what feels true, even beyond the logical. If something doesn’t feel right, challenge it and dig deeper.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Influenced by THE HEIROPHANT

Music: When You Believe (with Maren Morris) – Dave Audé Remix – Pentatonix, Maren Morris, Dave Audé

Listen for the truth this month, Cancer. There has been uncertainty around a new beginning for you and you are about to see so clearly how brilliantly everything is coming together. Your intuitive abilities are on MAX this month, so trust no one more than yourself now. Tune in and feel the guidance of spirit deep within you. There is some powerful soul training happening within you now. And this is going to help guide your year quite powerfully. Keep your eyes open for the birds. They will be guiding you this month.

Final Thought: I” was looking for someone to inspire me, motivate me, support me, keep me focused…someone who would love me, cherish me, make me happy, and I realized all along that I was looking for myself.” – Unknown

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)

Influenced by DEATH

Music: True Colors – Cyndi Lauper, It’s Time to Wake Up 2023 – La Femme

Information that may have been hidden for a time is coming to the light. You are being shown the truth. You are divinely protected for a safe passage through. You haven’t been able to see your way forward on a path and this month is helping you see how you can finally make a master plan because now you finally feel connected to your soul in a way that you haven’t been able to feel. Listen to what your body is telling you now. You have some big changes in 2019 and this month is forcing you to see what you need to do to prepare—whether you want to or not! Spend time alone this month whenever you can.

Final Thought: “Sometimes solitude is one of the most beautiful things on earth.” -Bukowski

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Influenced by 5 OF CUPS

Music: Around Town – The Kooks

You know what you want, Virgo! Kicking off the new year—you see it. You know the change you want to see in the life you are living. The cards show that you should own and trust this certainty—then let go of needing everything to happen all at once. Start with simple steps, take action to change past patterns. Look at the consequences of your rage and emotions last month. For some of you just being with family around the holidays you may have been able to see all too clearly how this pattern is in your DNA. Congratulations though, you are breaking the patterns! You cannot claim ignorance any longer, January is about the tranquility of peace and understanding. This important shift is going to move SO many things in your life to allow you to grow higher!

Final Thought: Breathe deeply into your diaphragm, expanding your chest to achieve great peace.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)

Influenced by CHARIOT

Music: Don’t Look Back – Bettye Swann

Libra, your January is a relaxed celebration as long as you can stay out of your head! The Chariot implies a triumphal feeling of freedom! You made some monumental changes last year. Growth for you was undeniable. Anyone who knows you can see how you have expanded the power of your heart. Be open to travel and learning this month and try to get yourself out a little bit more. You can handle it! Be social and whip that suitcase out for some last minute travel opportunities. Don’t think twice, just say YES! Be rebellious!

Final thought: Plato said you can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Influenced by TEMPERANCE

Music: Tell Me It’s Over – Avril Lavigne

Self-healing is the name of your game this month. Work should not be the emphasis. Relationships don’t get your everything. For you Scorpio, you are finding another level of enlightenment. This is more powerful than you can imagine. Your best way forward this month is to be very present and patient because when divinity strikes, you won’t even have to think about it you’ll just be led. If you can go on retreat—GO! Spend the new moon and full moon connecting to your soul. Let the moon envelope you. Sleep, rest and notice your energy levels all month.

Final Thought: Kanyini is the Aboriginal teaching of unconditional love. Practice these 4 principles in January – 1. A sense of belonging to home and land. 2. Family connecting with life. 3. Love, spirit or soul. 4. The belief about creation and the right way to live.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 19)

Influenced by 5 OF PENTACLES

Music: Fix Up, Look Sharp – Dizzee Rascal

Sag, you have an energetic lift supporting you this month. For some this could be served in your finances,  others may see a health shift for the better and others may discover a leap in your talent. The advice here is get ready to make some bold moves. Don’t be afraid of large investments. Ask the right questions and talk through contracts, but do not be afraid to go after your dreams! This is your year! By the end of the month, there is something new and exciting aligning for you! You are treasured now—be grateful!

Final Thought: “It’s your outlook on life that counts. If you take yourself lightly and don’t take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a live saver!” – Betty White

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 – Jan 19)

Influenced by THE FOOL

Music: Ooh La La – Faces

You are perfectly balanced this month, Cap! It’s probably felt like FOREVER since you’ve felt this comfortable in your own body. Your mind is free. Work is going smoothly and you know what you need to do to get ahead. Family, home and love are supporting your dreams and you feel content in your relationship. You have the capacity to tap into your divine genius this month all while maintaining the traits we all love about you—your wisdom and humility. Let go of expectations and trust your instincts. Possibility is everywhere you look now.

Final Thought: “A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.” – William Shakespeare

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Influenced by ACE OF CUPS

Music: Sea Of Love – 2006 Remastered Version – The Honeydrippers

Aquarius! I have a message of change for you. This may be change that you want or change that you fear. Emotionally, this is the change you need to feel peace in your heart. Trust in the timing of what is happening for you. The dream is closer than you realize. You have the support of Amitabha with you. He represents the ability to transform malice into compassion and opens a door to salvation that does not depend upon a tireless dedication to transformation. I cannot stress enough how important it is for you to REST in unconditional faith. You have made best efforts. Now trust! Take a bath on the new moon this month. January 5. Close your eyes and hold love in your heart and let go.

Final Thought: I am enough. What I do is enough. What I have is enough. Who I am and what I do is enough.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Influenced by QUEEN OF PENTACLES

Music: Supergroovalisticprosifunkstication (The Bumps Bump) – Parliament

Pisces, we need your feminine now more than ever. Is there a way you know you can dip more into your feminine? Perhaps releasing a masculine tendency, a forceful energy that has not served you in the past? You’ve always been the sign that feels more than any of us. This means you can feel and fall the farthest into the dark but that you also can go higher than the highest into the light. We need you leading us by example now. We need you reaching up into the light. How can you be using your light to guide us now—in your community, in your workplace, in your group of friends? There will be temptation to use your power for the wrong reason. Honor the leader you know you can be. With your strong mind and the ability to broadcast thoughts and feelings more clearly than many others, we need you to dig deep and release the dark thoughts, the bad mood and SHARE YOUR LIGHT! Write the piece. Host the event. Get your good out in the world.

Final Thought: Temptation usually comes in through a door that has deliberately been left open.
