ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Influenced by THE HANGED MAN
Music: Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games – of Montreal, Feel Your Weight (Poolside Remix) – Rhye
Well, it seems there is quite a lot happening for you in October, sweet Aries. On the surface, you might fight me on that. But that’s just it—the big stuff is happening on the inside. The song is saying, “let’s pretend we don’t exist.” You have no idea how powerful and healing this internal work is for you. Your mantra for October is surrender and do nothing because that’s when the magic happens. So, every time you feel yourself wanting to force something in place, surrender and do nothing. And then sh*t happens! Creatively, there is a lot of work coming up for you, plenty of exciting work that’s going to overwhelm you in beautiful ways. So, for now surrender. Once you’ve stopped struggling with yourself, harmony and wisdom will prevail. And in the mean time, let yourself make peace with enemies and repair karmic errors. The faithful servant is your soul’s purpose this month.
Final Thought: “In this world it is not what we take up, but what we give up, that makes us rich.” – Henry Ward Beecher
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)
Influenced by THE EMPRESS
Music: It’s a Trip – TiRon & Ayomari, To Build A Home – The Cinematic Orchestra, Patrick Watson
Integrity: What does that word mean to you? Oxford dictionary defines integrity as the state of being whole and undivided as well as moral uprightness. For this month, let’s focus on the whole of you, the cohesion of everything you are and how you can wholly represent that for humanity. The more time you can take to pour into your soul, your inner guide, the more you are winning. You’ll only overthink it if you try to plan the future. You’ll only get in the way if you try to pour yourself into work or a relationship. Instead, pour all of that loving energy, all of that ambition, into your soul. I promise you, it will be worth it. Try for a day or two, and you’ll notice a shift in your wholeness, in who you are attracting and who is showing up for you for work. Think about what vision of yours has felt stuck. Then, pour into yourself and notice how that vision begins unsticking. Do some work on your home space now as well. Buy some greens to connect you to nature. Find art that makes you feel. Or perhaps you are ready to start manifesting that next home—let yourself explore where you feel pulled.
Final Thought: “When I first open my eyes upon the morning meadows and look out upon the beautiful world, I thank God that I am alive.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by THE EIGHT OF CUPS
Music: Everybody’s Gotta Live – Love, Sunday – Original Mix – Max Manie, A Tune for Jack – Lemon Jelly
Gemini, what a beautiful shake up October is for you. It’s as if you can feel your life changing and becoming greater than you thought possible—but at the same time, you have no idea what the f*ck is coming next. Risk being completely yourself through this transition. Your talent is shining, and a fire is lighting the creative genius within. Don’t be afraid to go at it alone now. And as you look at who you are bringing along, don’t be afraid to use “unqualified” people. You are a visionary and have immense power now. So, please use it for good. Take a weekend to paint, make music or some sort of art. If you want a baby, this feels like a great month to try! If you have an idea for a book or a movie, use this month to dive deeper into your psyche to develop more. You are truly being guided by the great mysterious visionary within, and there is enormous potential if you allow that spirit to show you.
Final Thought: “Every morning when I get up, the first thing I decide is: what do I want? Misery? Blissfulness? What am I going to choose today? And it happens that I always choose blissfulness. It is my choice, it is my life.” – Abdullah
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Influenced by the QUEEN OF WANDS
Music: When I Get There – Big Wild, They Don’t Want Music – Black Eyed Peas ft. James Brown, The Reasons We Were Blessed – Xavier Rudd, Get There Soon – Geographer
You have the angel of global vision of events leading you this month, Cancer. Are you willing to let her lead you instead of you trying to take the reins? So many times you are expected to be the leader for the rest of us, and you gladly accept. But I ask you to accept this new challenge: This month, find your new way of leading by following. And with the extra time on your hands, I beg of you to give to your love—to your soul friends, to your family, to the love that you cherish within yourself. Your greatest success this month is in human relationships. Focus on the ones that hold you and see you and don’t need anything from you. And let them love you. This could also be a time when a new soul enters your life in a very big way. New love, new partner, new soul friend? Let yourself be open to how love is carrying you forward now.
Final Thought: “Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.” – Jean-Luc Picard
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
Influenced by STRENGTH
Music: Touch Me – JABS, Otro Dia (Mastiksoul Remix) – Gregor Salto (ft. KiT), Only The Strong – Laura Marling
The divine feminine is flowing through you now in a powerful way, Leo. This is an incredible, unseen talent—it’s what miracles are made from. You are blessing others with your gifts without even knowing the effect you have. First, so that you will keep this gift sacred and strong, take good care of your energy. Keep yourself pure and free of toxins and negativity. Second, keep sharing this feminine gift. My body is literally heating up as I write this. It’s an immense amount of energy you are able to channel now. Go listen to the music, especially “Only the Strong.” Go spread your goodwill for us all. And remember, take good care of the power and keep it generating for humanity. You will see the different ways you can use this gift!
Final Thought: “Have you had a kindness shown? Pass it on; twas not given for thee alone, pass it on; let it travel down the years, let it wipe another’s tears, till in heaven the deed appears—pass it on. You can’t light a candle to show others the way, without feeling the warmth of that bright little ray; and you can’t give a rose all the fragrance with dew, without some of its sweetness remaining with you.” – Henry Burton
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Influenced by the JUDGMENT
Music: When the Morning Comes – Hall & Oates, Familiar – Agnes Obel, I Can’t Stop Thinking About You – The Shadowboxers, Acoustic – Billy Raffoul
You are on a whole new path now, sweet Virgo, and there’s no going back. Right now, the focus is still on letting go of the old structures that have held you back. The old structures must crumble completely in order for this new way forward to truly happen; you’ve been asking for change, but it’s also coming in the form of you understanding the world better. Either way, you’re about to feel the pure joy and light of this change. There is a focus on your third eye this month, so if you choose to, I imagine you can go deep into your seeing and knowing of your soul. Also, watch your dreams for more hints. And most importantly, just keep letting yourself empty out. Imagine yourself naked in the changing room at your favorite store as you are brought new outfits to try on for the exciting event that is new life itself. You stare at your bare body, layering on clothes and jewels, waiting to see what is going to blow you away and make you feel like walking out to show the world the new you! Let yourself dote on naked you. (Go listen to “Acoustic” now.)
Final Thought: “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.” – Albert Einstein
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
Influenced by the FOUR OF PENTACLES
Music: Please Don’t Make Me Cry – Lianne La Havas, How Does It Feel – Kamaiyah, We Should Tell the Truth – metr, Pain in My Heart – Otis Redding
Libra, you are coming into the month with joy in your heart and a soul wanting to share more from this place of joy. But there is still an imbalance that needs to be settled or be made aware of. Do you desire lasting stability? Is that realistic? What makes you feel safe? Are you too focused on material security? Sometimes accepting our absolute insecurity is the only way to remain safe. Where are you grasping for power—is it by manipulating someone or something to maintain control or security? Keep looking inward for safety and security—not outward. This is the month to loosen this slight hold on you. And once you do, you can go back to nurturing that joyful heart of yours that wants to be shared with the world.
Final Thought: “Never take someone for granted. Hold every person close to your heart because you might wake up one day and realize that you’ve lost a diamond while you were too busy collecting stones.” – Unknown
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Influenced by the WORLD
Music: Today – Zero 7, José González, Sweet Baby (feat. Erykah Badu) – Macy Gray, Grow (ft. Leo Stannard) – Kidnap, Circle Up (feat. Bipolar Sunshine) – Party Favor
Scorpio, this month is liberating the potential buried deep inside of you. Get ready to get poked, jolted and shaken. Don’t worry, you can handle it. You are ready, sweet grasshopper. You cannot miss this opportunity to grow! It’s so critical now that you are voicing your needs. Even when you feel they are implied or you’ve already made them known. God, the Universe, the planets, they need you to reinforce it for yourself. Scream it from the mountaintops or at least just writing it in your journal. And while you’re communicating your desires, tell your partner, too. Tell them what you want, what you need, what will make life better. Single? Start talking about what it would feel like to have that kind of love that supports and lifts you! So, get ready to jump on every chance to speak your truth and move forward into the uncomfortable place that pushes you to jump!
Final Thought: “Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 19)
Influenced by the KNIGHT OF PENTACLES
Music: Put Down What You Are Carrying (with Brett Dennen) – Trevor Hall, On The Nature Of Daylight – Max Richter, Louisa Fuller, Natalia Bonner, John Metcalfe, Philip Sheppard & Chris Worsey
Have you been caught up? Are you getting caught up in something that feels too good to be true? Let’s just not get caught up, Sag—you’re too wise for shenanigans. The message here is patient vigilance. This is where you thrive. Concentrate on what you have been planning and working on without getting distracted or blinded by the bright and shiny. Just do the work—slow and steady. Sag, our peacemaker, we need your peaceful energy this month, this season, more than ever. So, let’s not go to war with yourself, and instead, be our slow and steady peacemaker in this world. Your services will be appreciated and your loyalty rewarded—no doubt. Can you give a little more to the senses now? Make a meal. Do some breathwork. Give your partner a massage. Make a playlist that inspires you.
Final Thought: “Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don’t want it. What seems conceit, bad manners, or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone.” – Miller Williams
CAPRICORN (Dec 20 – Jan 19)
Influenced by the SEVEN OF PENTACLES
Music: You’re Not Alone – Semisonic, Nobody Knows – Pastor T.L. Barrett and the Youth for Christ Choir
GIVE THE GAME AWAY, CAP! You’ve been playing hard, trying to keep up appearances. Worrying about losing. Fearing the loss. Trying to hide the doubt you have in yourself. Expectations increase the chance of disappointment. Give it all a rest now, Cap. This negative planning has been getting you nowhere, but this is the month you can finally let go of setting yourself up for failure with these extreme expectations and the fear of ending up as a nobody. You have SO MUCH to give and share. We all see it for you. And you finally are ready to see it…. But this month, don’t try, just rest. And don’t think so much about the future. Nobody knows. And anyway, part of your gift as a Capricorn is to be able to make money to do well in the material world. So, the potential is there. But for this month, let’s just snub all the negativity. Everytime it comes up, go meditate. Go for a run. Go do something creative. Find your outlet and go do that. Let’s play a different game than the one you’ve been playing.
Final Thought: “Mishaps are like knives, that either serve us or cut us, as we grasp them by the blade or the handle.” – James Russell Lowell
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Influenced by the TEN OF CUPS
Music: Keeping Me Under – Two Another, Out to Get ‘cha – Rare Cuts
Family and loved ones are where it’s at for you, Aquarius. Emotionally, you’ve ridden the waves and come out clear and stable and ready to accept more love in your life. Give yourself a pat on the back—nah, actually, give yourself a big hug. And then, go share some of that big love with the world. Show us the way in times of duress. Because yes, the world is still finding itself and struggling through this birth. And we could use your massive love right now. If you can just stay open, you’ll be given more of that love right back. Hold onto nothing and let yourself move freely in flow. More time outside in nature keeps this open energy flowing for you. And if you can open up a space in your home, you can commune with this free flowing spirit throughout the day! Do some decluttering, open the windows, buy fresh flowers and feel your expansiveness. Fulfillment is your word of the month—you deserve it.
Final Thought: “We are reminded how short life really is, and how we are just passing through. So, all the people you haven’t told you love lately, tell them, and live your days like you mean it.” – Hal Sutton
PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Influenced by THE FOOL
Music: When We First Met – Luke Marzec, What They’ll Say About Us – FINNEAS
You have passed some important tests, Pisces! Does it feel that way? Like you are somehow so much closer to love, closer to your passions, to your soul purpose?! Congratulations! You are being seen for these things! We see you! We see you shining your light brighter! And now that you have passed, it’s time for more! More lessons. More growth! More for you! You may even find yourself teaching others because of what you’ve learned. Or helping a friend with something big that you’ve recovered from. Or perhaps you are writing it and sharing your truths. Please don’t hold back from teaching us. We need your Pisces growth more than ever. And can you just let yourself focus on being? And maybe make some more jokes, make us laugh? Find some funny in your teachings? You are beginning the next adventure, so let yourself have fun with it all—and don’t be too serious!
Final Thought: “Does the sun ask itself, ‘Am I good? Am I worthwhile? Is there enough of me?’ No, it burns and it shines. Does the sun ask itself, ‘What does the moon think of me? How does mars feel about me today?’ No, it burns, it shines. ‘Am I as big as suns in other galaxies?’ No, it burns, it shines.” – Andrea Dworkin
