ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Influenced by the 4 OF SWORDS
Music: You Want It Darker – Leonard Cohen, Who Can It Be Now? – Men At Work
Get ready for the dramatics, Aries! It’s like a bomb explodes in your career and then you have to watch and wait for what the explosion means! All you need to do is remain in the light. Keep positive, as this month is showing you how life is going to change for you. Career and finances are the big sparks coming off the fire and you are seeing how you’re cash flow can explode too. Perhaps this includes some investments—don’t go crazy yet, but you can start exploring and researching what you want to buy into! Bitcoin? Start having those conversations and reading up on where you want to expand your $$. It’s a little bit of hurry up and wait—don’t let your mind run away with too much just yet.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)
Influenced by the QUEEN OF WANDS
Music: Miracle – CHVRCHES, Firewalker – Jungle Fire
Charles Bukowski said “What matters most is how well you walk through the fire”. May is the month that you show us all how you are the master fire-walker. It might begin with all the fear, all the heat burning you, but by the month’s end, you are the superhero, with us all standing by in awe of your superpowers. When the change feels overwhelming, remember there is always calm in the midst of chaos. Your solid sign will find it. Be on the lookout for a woman who is going to appear in the ashes of the fire—she is going to change your life for the better. You may even create a partnership of some sorts.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by PAGE OF CUPS
Music: Vide Noir – Lord Huron, The Boy In the Bubble – Richy Ahmed Remix – Paul Simon, Richy Ahmed
Gemini, this is a month of freedom for you. Take a weekend to go write that first chapter you’ve been dreaming out. Have a screenplay you want to revise? A product you know you can create? This is the month to go deeper with what you are creating! Your relationship can handle some space—just be honest. And if you’re single, own this time to throw yourself into work and your creative genius. How do connect to that inner muse? Find yours and run away together! Be gentle with the process, this month is like that first stroke of genius to get you going! By the month’s end you can dive back into your relationship or perhaps open your eyes to that love peaking at you from across the room—you’ll be ready to get your flirt on by then! P.S. Say yes to that charity event, that opportunity to volunteer. There’s something wonderful and exciting and new for you that comes from you giving back/doing your civil duty! You not only get to feel good about yourself but get a bonus, so DO IT!
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Influenced by QUEEN OF SWORDS
Music: better off – Jeremy Zucker, Chelsea Cutler, Los Ageless – DJDS Version – St. Vincent, DJDS
Oh Cancer, you have been dealt some freakin’ UNFAIR cards lately. But guess what? There’s been a reason for all of it. This is about the REINVENTION of you! This month you are getting a sweet offer or some pretty exciting news. Something in the cards is showing me to tell you not to rush to decide everything yet, take it all in and listen to your heart. This might be the kickstart of something much larger to come. Can you feel it in your soul? If your relationship has felt confusing, just take note. Don’t push forward. Don’t run from it. If you’re single, notice what is showing up. You are being noticed and enjoy what you’re attracting. Getting frustrated by the “wrong” ones you keep finding yourself meeting? Throw that frustration into a new workout routine. Or spend a few nights cooking up some yummy new dishes. Try some Kitcheri or a healthy ramen! You’ll feel great knowing you are doing something to make yourself better.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
Influenced by TEMPERANCE
Music: Hold Me Down – Gazzo Remix – Family of the Year, Gazzo, deep end – Lykke Li
Leo, be prepared for some unexpected gifts from the universe this month. These gifts are to help you tap into your visionary side, giving you a deeper understanding of your true purpose. It’s as if you can finally connect some of the dots from your past to see how they fit into your future. It is ALL making sense!!! Just be prepared to do the work this month. You may be burning the torch at both ends, but believe me, it’s worth it. And if you travel, get ready to get on a plane eve more. Some big developments are coming together—if an unexpected trip presents itself, do not ask questions, just grab that carry-on and get on board. With all this career responsibility, you don’t get a free pass from relationship and family responsibility. But, you can handle it all!
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Influenced by THE MOON
Music: In The Morning – Club 8, 2 Souls on Fire (feat. Quavo) – Bebe Rexha, Quavo
Virgo, you are being forced into a deeper relationship with love. It would be easy to just keep being light and enjoying the surface of things, but this month brings an opportunity for you to poke through the barrier that has been protecting your heart. You will be tempted to just avoid the fear of having something real and might want to lie to yourself or a potential lover and say you aren’t interested in more. BUT WHY? Risk it! You’ll never know unless you go there. Pull the chains off your heart and see if the other might tear theirs down as well. Be wholly honest. What is it you want? What do you need? If it’s too scary to have the conversation, write a letter! Could this be a friend who you want more from? Or perhaps someone you’ve been lightly dating? Don’t overthink this Virgo, tippy-toe to the next step if you have to. If you’re in relationship, talk about how you might deepen that love!
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
Influenced by ACE OF SWORDS
Music: Mansion Door – Shakey Graves, She’s Too Good – Kenna
This is an exciting time for career Libra. You probably don’t even know that the creative project coming to you is setting you up for how your life is going to change in the long term—the first of what is more. Don’t try to figure it all out, just go with it. You wouldn’t even believe it all if you saw what this means for you. This quote should be your guiding mantra for May, Libra, “Work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express, not to impress. Don’t strive to make your presence noticed just make your absence felt.” – Grace Lichtenstein.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Influenced by SIX OF CUPS
Music: Get Gone – White Arrows, Cruisin’ – Smokey Robinson
Scorpio, home is important to you and your sensitive soul, but this month we gotta get you out of there! Trust your instinct on what this means. A few trips for work and pleasure? Or perhaps this is in reference to a move! The cards show you will know how home needs to change for you. Maybe that means renovations or changing the feng-shui. Just don’t ignore those gut instincts, and speaking of gut—listen to yours in terms of what food you’re putting in. How is your tummy feeling? You may be making some important health changes this month. Your body is your temple and we want that place gleaming! Finally, love. Time to be vulnerable scorpio. Go there in relationship. Push yourself to go deeper and allow yourself to truly feel. Engage in pleasure.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 19)
Influenced by KING OF PENTACLES
Music: Raw – Sigrid, And She Was – Talking Heads
Sag, this is your month to HEAL! Please devote time now for your health. You may have been running yourself ragged or just feel like you’re coming off some heavy stuff. Forgive yourself, forgive others. The cards show it’s not fair how much you’ve had to carry this last few months. Your inspiration will be returning! Know that and allow this month to be like a big deep breath of relief. Call your family, go for lots of hikes, whatever brings your soul back home—do that. Go buy some crystals. Put some rose quartz and rhodonite in your room, add selenite to your family room—the darkness is finally lifting!
CAPRICORN (Dec 20 – Jan 19)
Influenced by KING OF SWORDS
Music: 2002 – Anne-Marie, Make Me Feel – Janelle Monáe
Have you been holding back from making plans, Cap? This month marks the shift in momentum for creating your domain. You are finally getting the motivation you’ve been praying for! The most important message for you Capricorn is BE NICE TO YOURSELF. Love yourself. Love the process. You could be SO hard on you right now, but that is not going to help anything. You may have adapted to these difficult times, but we both know you won’t be sad to see them end. Wake up every day and give yourself a pep talk! Or at least a one-liner that gets your head right! In prepping you for this momentous change I must warn you, there might be something tricky about a location. Perhaps a move is on the horizon? Or the commute is more than you could imagine? You will make it work. Get excited for some change!
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Influenced by SEVEN OF SWORDS
Music: Best Friend – Sofi Tukker, NERVO, The Knocks, Alisa Ueno, You’re Not Good Enough – Blood Orange
What is that voice in your head telling you that you aren’t good enough? STOP LISTENING TO THAT ONE. Time to turn to the other shoulder where the angel is guiding you with her loving thoughts. Time to commit to meditating, yoga or a book that will help you work through a time where you seem to be falling into a negative pattern. There are some INCREDIBLE Rumi tarot cards that can have a magical capability of pulling you back into the reality of magical living. Once you start the month addressing that negative voice, you can throw yourself into your purpose. If you write, this is a big month to throw it ALL down. You are flowing, perhaps it’s all the emotions, go with it! And if there’s a cause that’s important to you, spend more time and energy giving to that which gives your heart and soul purpose. This will be incredibly healing for you now!
PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Influenced by 8 OF SWORDS
Music: The Boy In the Bubble – Richy Ahmed Remix – Paul Simon, Richy Ahmed, Nothing Arrived – Live from Spotify London – Villagers
This month is just bringing so many wonderful things your way Pisces. You may even be surprised at how things just seem to be falling so naturally into place for you. Career is building, new opportunities are arriving, finances are settling into this very beautiful progression of growth. Your home is a place of magic for you, especially mid-month. Perhaps plan a little get together with some of your favorite people—game night? The only point of frustration for you may be the thing that you want to control. Perhaps a relationship (or lack of one) that is seeming to take all of your energy. The advice for May is let it go and let God. Stay out of your own way, notice your triggers and then accept the transformative process.
