ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Influenced by the 9 OF PENTACLES
Music: OMG!!! – Yelle
Your vision is becoming a reality! Open your arms to receive and share all of the fruits of your labor. No, this isn’t the time to relax—keep going. You are the emerging star and everyone wants a piece. You have some choices to make this month; options are all around you so choose wisely. And be sure to keep your eyes on the goal. Don’t get caught up in the attention and get deterred—commit to the art, commit to your vision. Accept the blessing of the stars with humility and honor.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)
Influenced by the QUEEN OF WANDS
Music: We Can Do Better – NEW_ID Remix – Matt Simons, NEW_ID
Your career is on display now, Taurus. You have been working hard and this month you’ll start getting some glimpses into how it’s paying off. It will be crucial for you now to throw fear and worry out the window. Take every day as a gift. Don’t get caught up in the planning, instead, let each day show you what might be. A powerful woman has advice for you—possibly more than just words. Let her be a guide for you and be open to her suggestions. Also, don’t just agree with someone at work–TALK IT OUT! Use your voice this month and then listen to those who want to show up for you. By the month’s end, let yourself go. You’ve worked hard to get here and deserve a fun weekend or crazy date night.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by 7 OF SWORDS
Music: Stormy Love, NM. (feat. JOY.) – ZHU, JOY.
CHAOS is sticking his head in your doorway this month, Gemini. But guess what—he might be your soulmate! Or, she might be the part of yourself that you have been hiding from and that wants you to soar to new heights. Do not question the chaos—explore it. Tell Chaos what you stand for and let him/her stir it up. Trust they are here for a reason. Chaos will show you how strong you really are and will expose to you what you were too afraid to see in the past. You are ready for the shock value and you are going to be surprised at how much you LOVE it.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Influenced by THE TOWER
Music: Michigan – Arms Akimbo, Take It Easy – Eagles
Oh Cancer, hold your heart with tender care this month. A birth is occurring within. A new belief system, philosophy or sense of self is emerging. Take all of your attention out of your head, out of your mind, this month and pour it into your heart. And from there, spread the love and attention into your body. This is your sacred temple. If you’ve been carrying too many emotions here, now is a time to begin to release them. Let yourself sleep. When you are not in your head, you can really listen to what your body needs. Do everything you can to love yourself—get a massage, go to a soundbath or take a weekend to binge on Netflix shows. Whatever makes your heart feel loved and supported!
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
Influenced by THE HERMIT
Music: Tree – Stevie Wonder
Put aside the doubt and frustration that has been placed on you by the shackles of society. Leo, you KNOW yourself. You know that you don’t want to live in a smaller truth, but that means you must wait. Impatience pokes and pricks at you reminding you of what you haven’t yet achieved, but don’t be a bore. You know you could take the easy path without passion, but CHOOSE A LIFE OF PASSION or at least choose to wait to see what that option looks like. Ask the trees. You are strong in your knowing this month. Trust it and I trust you’ll make the right decision.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Influenced by 3 OF PENTACLES
Music: Clean Up Woman – Betty Wright, Alone (Feat. Big Sean & Stefflon Don) – Halsey, Big Sean, Stefflon Don
Virgo! A gift is being offered to you now! Your heart is taking wings! It’s scary as hell—like being swallowed by the earth and spat back out in another time and space. But the good news is that you come out the queen overseeing the royal palace. This is not just a shift in your life, it’s an evolutionary shift! You will know what to do as it’s happening. Don’t let others dictate for you. There will always be haters. You deserve all of this and can handle everything that comes with it.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22)
Influenced by SEVEN OF PENTACLES
Music: I Am Free – Cosmos & Creature
What does your heart deserve? Your body was made to overcome challenges and now you are facing one that will take you into the next level of maturity. Is there a greater pathway opening up for you? You see it! It’s the truth—being lit so brightly that you cannot hide from it. You have been feeling defeated and you are being given the option to step up and stand up in the light. Say goodbye to the past and choose the light! Everything that you need will be in the light and everything that isn’t worth it in your new life will fall behind into the darkness. Just be willing to see it. That is all.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Influenced by EIGHT OF SWORDS
Music: Black Water – Timber Timbre, The Liquidator – Harry J Allstars
Oh Scorpio, this is a beautiful month, but oh so incredibly difficult for you—the one who knows. The darkness is lifting and life is becoming so brilliant, however you may lose your mind because you are about to lose all control. The light is blinding you. As the master controller, the knower—this is blasphemy. There is no way to wrap your mind around this one. You cant put it in on a to-do list. You cant research it. You just have to go for it. Say yes! Throw your hair down. Throw your clothes off. JUMP IN—let the water soak you to the core. Then, when you come up for breath, you’ll feel freer than you have in ages or maybe ever. Instead of feeling trapped by the fear and the unknowing, feel FREE BY THE FEAR. You can BE AND THRIVE here.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 19)
Influenced by 6 OF SWORDS
Music: Up Around The Bend – Creedence Clearwater Revival
You are in the great void, Sag. Are you moving on or moving forward? It is all happening under the cover of darkness. There is money, there is opportunity, there is VAST excitement, but you don’t get to see ANY of it—not yet. This is not the time to fall into depression or to create a struggle. Instead, feed into the darkness. What can you give the darkness? The is the WAR OF ART (go read Steven Pressfield’s book if you need more inspiration). You are at war with your gift! You have a gift, but that gift requires you to keep giving of yourself until it can give back!
CAPRICORN (Dec 20 – Jan 19)
Influenced by KNIGHT OF PENTACLES
Music: Look up in the Sky – Négro Nature – Francis The Great
What has been holding you back from fully loving? How can we bring back the childlike wonder that accepts divine encouragement with an open heart? September is the month that you relearn how to receive love. Accept it all. Soak it all in. This includes love for yourself. Unblock that heart sweet Cap. What walls need to be taken down? You built them to protect and feel safe, but they do not serve a purpose anymore and they are blocking you from having it all. You are in the process of stepping into your huge purpose and the steps to be taken now are in love!
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Influenced by 4 OF SWORDS
Music: I Get Along Without You Very Well (Except Sometimes) – Chet Baker, Midnight Snack – Solomun
Aquarius, this is a moment to throw everything out the window. Release it all. Let go of needing to know or planning or needing to make it happen. How can you just love? There is so much love around you and this is because of your willingness. You want to make it all happen and be reassured that you are making progress. Keep going, but in service. Be in service to others. Keep giving of yourself without expectation. You will allow others to find their way more easily because you are trusting in silence.
PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Influenced by 4 OF CUPS
Music: Baby Please Don’t Go – Rose Mitchell, Bees – Caribou
You are the sweet soul dancer this month Pisces. Throw all of your love into dance now! The love is there, but you are giving it to your dancing soul. You are a force. Opportunity and magic are filling you. Nothing for you is ordinary and that is especially true now. Give yourself up to the divine knowing that all will be taken care of in perfect timing. And in the meantime you will be dancing your soul off— spinning around in joy. Accept every dancer, every opportunity to be wild in your soul shoes. You are like a bee buzzing around from flower to flower and when he returns to the hive, he begins his intricate dance of abundance!
