Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Influenced by KING OF PENTACLES
From this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines. – Walt Whitman
You are playing and working in both worlds now more than ever Aries! As if fairy in the land of sprites one day and then boss lady/man in the corner office the next. There is something of the magical spiritual realm that is just a breath away as you continue in your worldly journey. Can you feel it? Can you remember it’s right there with you as you make choices in your physical being….your spirit is with you expansively bringing the magic to your endeavors. Guiding the big choices. Helping to show you who to meet, where to go next, how to envision what’s next. There’s an element to all this playing out this month in a way that I believe will help you trust in the financials, the material of things more. Just remember to stay connected to both sides and the clarity will be there.
PS Have you been exploring going out east more? Wherever, however, that makes sense to you? Yes to exploring that.
Sleep potion: Explore the sacred geometry of your bedroom. Maybe add a prism?
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Influenced by KNIGHT OF PENTACLES, Rx
Whatever you do you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men to and women to win them. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
What are you afraid of Taurus? What is the worst case scenario? And what about the best? Maybe you can try a mind game I’ve been playing. When something scares you – a job situation, a health situation, a relationship sitch. Think the worst – I could be fired. I could die. Then think the best. I could get a crazy insane offer, I could be upgrading my whole body. Take both to the most extreme wild scenarios. For me when I feel myself going into the dark one, I play with the crazy opposite extreme and then I level back into the middle. Could you use this tactic in part of your life now? When you feel in fear, imagine the absurdist perfection that could come of it. For you there is also an element of abundance flowing toward you and wanting to be accepted by you. Can you open yourself to what the universe wants to give you? And as always with abundance, practice being so freaking grateful for what you’ve already been given.
Sleep potion: Surround your bed with some of your favorite things. Crystals? Books? Albums?
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by EIGHT OF WANDS
The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life. – Muhammad Ali
Gemini the message for you this month is very much about timing. But before I go there I want to share something about connection. Somehow I believe the two(timing and connection) are tied for you. And the timing feels here for you in April. This is a big one for you. There’s a Chinese proverb that says - an invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle but it will never break. I want you to carry that proverb with you because it should be a reminder for you that great strides can be made without much effort when you know that timing plays an important part in what is happening for you. So your work in April which I don’t even think I need to tell you is to keep it moving. And move it will. I believe it will feel more like you are being carried this month. In the most beautiful way. Let yourself be taken. The answer is yes. No stalling. No waiting. Just yes’ing.
Sleep potion: Your dreams want to weave for you at night. Can you put a reminder of this by your bedside? I imagine a spider weaving the most beautiful intricate web connecting worlds. Keep a reminder for you.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Influenced by QUEEN OF CUPS
Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…Anything can happen, child. Anything can be. – Shel Silverstein
Where can you soften, Cancer? Where have you had your walls up in a relationship? Maybe this is a subtle wall. Noone else knows but YOU know. You have been protecting yourself – or so you thought. It’s time to soften. Open. Expose yourself where you didn’t even know you were covering. This is what is going to bring you to the next level. The next level in love. The next level in your work. The next level in your destiny. This vulnerability is subtle but very real now. It may only be you who feels the rawness to it. Everyone else just feels a bit more connected to you but you feel raw. You feel open. You feel exposed. AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL. You are ready. Who have you been hardest on lately or held up against that wall of yours? Try softening, crying to them? Go listen to Patti and go dancing barefoot outside!
Sleep potion: Snuggle more. That’s it.
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)
Influenced by PAGE OF CUPS
Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! you're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human. – Anthony Robbins
Additional play for you is what’s up in April Leo. Can you hold a bit of teenage rockstar energy? But with a layer of awareness that makes you extra. You aren’t trying to self-sabotage the way you might have acted out in your teenage years……instead you are embodying that young carefree spirit of living in lightness but grounded in the wisdom of extra years. In addition to the awareness that comes with wisdom of age, now you have the awareness that also allows you to see how to use the lightness of living to your advantage – in business, in love, in living. You can see the lessons quickly and pivot. Let April be light and fun with pivots of learning that will shift your whole year, or maybe even your whole life.
Sleep potion: Go to bed consciously thinking about raising your vibration. Boom. Gamechanger.
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Influenced by THE HIGH PRIESTESS Rx
If you want to remain always happy, always perfect and always fulfilled, then always keep inside your heart a pocketful of sweet dreams.
– Sri Chinmoy
The perfect conditions are coming to support your growth now, Virgo. What experiences are needed to push you into your next level of being. The song is saying it’s just an illusion by IMAGINATION. What are you conjuring up in your mind when you read these words? What does your mind tell you need for your growth? If you could imagine the most magical scenario, what might you see as experiencing your next level? Now forget everything you saw in your mind and let yourself be taken into the magic of this month. It may feel like you are being time warped into the past and the future all at once but somehow I think by the end of the month it will all make sense to you. Maybe it already does.
Sleep potion: Less technology before bed and more sweet meditations Virgo! Try it and notice your sleep cycles shift!
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Influenced by KNIGHT OF SWORDS Rx
Let the refining and improving of your own life keep you so busy that you have little time to criticize others. – H. Jackson Brown
Whoa this is a moment Libra. Where have you been tricking yourself? Telling yourself you can't be happy one way or must live a specific kind of life? What do you need to let go of that you have been so hell bent on? This isn’t about completely changing yourself or not changing yourself. This is about OWNING what your soul wants you to see, to know, to accept. That maybe you have been ignoring or misinterpreting. IFYKYK. Time to uncover your true motivations and perhaps some false ambitions as well. Is there something you’ve been wanting for others but maybe not for yourself. Think about what comes up when you think of your ambitions, your goals, your truths. What do you want for YOU? What has the universe been giving you signals that it wants for you? A resolution is here for you this month.
Sleep potion: Try wearing black to connect to the darkness of night and allow yourself to be in the void where your dreams can paint new pictures of life for you!
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Influenced by 5 OF PENTACLES Rx
We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder. We always have the choice. – Dalai Lama
Power. It’s a wild word. Some meanings: The ability to do something or act in a particular way, especially as a faculty or quality. To move or travel with great speed. Physical strength exerted by someone. Scorpio when I tell you that your power is growing this month. I can almost guarantee it’s not any of those powers. To me it is the greatest power – it is the power of self-awareness. Of knowing yourself. Which means only you can really know its actual power. Your work here is to not be afraid to express your feelings when you are asked. How are you feeling about this job? What do you think about this house? How are you feeling in this relationship? Scorpio, when it feels off, uncomfortable or even good – EXPRESS it. Be vulnerable in how you FEEL. You think, maybe they’ll think I’m crazy – SAY IT ANYWAY. And because you are in your power of knowing for yourself, the outer will help shift to reflect what you need to see, to know, to feel to change. The speaking up is going to release attachment and bring liberation. And change your whole freaking life.
Sleep potion: It’s all about the breath for you this month scorpio. Breath it out before bed. Imagine your aura expanding with the inhale and any negativity being blown out with the exhale. Simple.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Influenced by JUSTICE
If we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently. – Anthony Robbins
You may be feeling this to be a time of negotiating your personal space. Where might you need to express yourself to someone who isn’t treating you properly? Anger can be fuel for productive and positive change. And maybe you can even get to the point of thanking the frustration and anger for showing you how you are ready for the next phase. It’s time. Time to negotiate the boundaries of your personal time, of your worth. Perhaps a moment to express your desire for promotion or a need for more freedom where you’ve felt shackled? This is your sign that you can make the conversation, even the anger, work in your favor if you can use it efficiently.
Sleep potion: Check out the walls that surround you when you sleep. Is there anything you can add/subtract to aid your nocturnal devotion?
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Influenced by KNIGHTS OF CUPS Rx
All human beings should try to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why. – James Thurber
Have you been resenting life a little bit Cappy? It’s okay to admit to yourself where you know you want to let go of old patterns. There is a DEEP transformation occurring for you this month. It might really feel like a big one for some of you – a release of old in a way that lightens your life in a ginormous way. Others of you may just feel butterflies in your tummy. Like a release that brings a kind of joy you haven’t felt in YEARS. Speaking of butterflies – watch for them as your sign that the shift is happening. There’s an immense freedom in knowing you don’t have to work so hard for where you are going. For you there is very little for me to write because it feels the guidance is coming for you whether you ask or look for it or not. If you do want to assist the process, your crown chakra seems the focus here. Your head. Your mind. If you can focus your breath there and imagine it expanding energetically. You will feel the Beyond.
Sleep potion: Flowers. What flowers bring you joy? Buy yourself flowers this month – let them bring a little smile to you before bed.
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Influenced by THE EMPRESS Rx
Voluntary simplicity means going fewer places in one day rather than more, seeing less so I can see more, doing less so I can do more, acquiring less so I can have more. – John Kabat-Zinn
First off, hummingbirds are your magic this month Aquarius. See them and give gratitude because they are like a sprinkling of beauty on your life. Also it feels like I’m supposed to tell you to cry this month. Like that is your work. CRY. When you feel like you want to cry – don’t stop it. Let the tears wash over you. Cleanse you. Your physical body is clearing out an old relationship cycle for you – a way of being in attachment is finally letting go so you can be renewed in your relationships and for those of you single, call in a new partnership. Don’t be afraid to say what you want and need from your relationships now. And tell your friends to set you up
Sleep potion: Mint tea is your magic emotion potion this month. Sip before bed.
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Influenced by 2 OF PENTACLES, Rx
I believe that all wisdom consists in caring immensely for a few right things, and not caring a straw about the rest. – John Buchanan
There’s nothing to figure out now, Pisces. Especially in terms of relationships. You are ATTRACTING now. And maybe even noticing what you have attracted in the past or even attracting in terms of your friendships and past relationships. Nothing to figure out but worth observing. Oh at that point in my life, I attracted my opposite. That person was in a situation of like attracting like. My heart is content. My heart is racing or confused. I am learning about myself. I am learning more about my past. My heart is growing and attracting. Let this attracting work for you in your work now too! Imagine what the best situation or person might be to help elevate your creative projects and attract! And here we go.
Sleep potion: The weather is your guide into your dreams this month. Play with what’s happening with mother nature and how it’s mirroring what's happening for you in your sleep!
