Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’t, the impossibles, the wants. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…Anything can happen, child. Anything can be. – Shel Silverstein
– Shel Silverstein
Aries where do you need space, rest, a good cry? You are the hibernating bear going into December. Don’t be afraid to sleep extra. Eat extra. Fill yourself up and let yourself feel all the emotions that need a good release. If you can allow all of this, you’ll find the month transforms into the waking bear. You emerge feeling lighter, more adventurous and ready to party with your friends and families for the holidays! The goal in all this is to really listen to what you need in each moment and give it to yourself. Be like the bear. Tired, sleep. Hungry, eat. Loving, cuddle. Full of passion, adventure. Feel each feeling fully and appreciate the fact that you feel! And share with others when that feels right too!
Sleep potion: The full moon is your friend this month. Charge your crystals. Bathe in the moonlight. Let the moon's energy reset your sleep for the whole month.
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Influenced by 3 OF SWORDS
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
– Winston S. Churchill
The play in your existence this month Taurus is like that of a frog jumping from leap pad to pad. First pad, power. What is your relationship to power? Do you need control? Do you want leadership? Do you want followers? Where can you soften in power and accept that success can flow to you no matter power. Next pad, recovery. You know what you are recovering from. It’s been harder times and big lessons and you can finally now relax into your recovery. It’s okay to let go and know that is behind you. Let yourself cry. Let yourself feel sad. Let yourself feel joy. It’s all okay. Last pad, just you. Alone. In your magical power. In your personal space. You get to make this pad whatever you want. You are magnanimous.
Sleep potion: If you are having trouble sleeping or waking up in the night – well this month Taurus, the message for you is to notice what your soul is trying to tell you in your foggy hours. Keep a journal to jot notes! These wake ups feel immensely helpful!
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by 5 OF PENTACLES
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
– Theodore Roosevelt
Can you take a risk on yourself now Gemini? Do something you normally wouldn’t? Try it on for size. Maybe it’s just being a different version of you for a day. Go for it. This feels like another level of moving on from your past. And there is such a sense of peace settling in for you. Allow it and let that peace carry you. Spend time by the water to remind you to stay in this flow. And when that opportunity for courageous risk presents itself, go for it! it’s as if the second you find peace, the universe is like heyyyyyy, awesome, here ya go – let’s go do something big now. Shake it up. Welcome to a new flow of life!
Sleep potion: Nature is your guide for sleep this month – get out to it if you can. If not, keep an emerald stone by your bed and breathe its green beauty into your heart.

To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.
– J.K. Rowling
Cancer, you really are seeing more into the depths and inner workings of your heart and mind now more than ever. It’s as if you’ve discovered or rediscovered yourself in a new way and it’s SO amazing. You can see the old you and laugh – oh how those silly things upset me. Oh how upset I was over those challenges. Now I am ready for newer and bigger ones. Bring it. Remember to take this moment and give yourself credit for how far you’ve come. No need to rush into the next batch of lessons. Let yourself accept and enjoy this new upleveling! You are in a powerful rebirth!

Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)
Influenced by 10 OF CUPS
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
– George Bernard Shaw
There is a glow of love and content surrounding you and your loved ones now Leo. How lucky are you? Just walking outside into the sunlight brings a sparkle of joy and a reminder of this content for you. So go do it! This month for you is A about accepting the choices of others and being empowered by them. And B about being open to the most unexpected revelations. You can wake up every day without knowing what it may show you! An example of all this would be a delayed plane for an exciting trip but then while waiting at the airport running into an old friend and getting the most beautiful catch up that leads to ... .well who knows what else!
Sleep potion: Leo notice who is coming into your dreams this month. Your dreams are ripe with messages and familiar faces who want to help you!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Influenced by THE MOON
You can never get a cup of tea large enough of a book long enough to suit me.
– C.S. Lewis
Balance is your mantra this month Virgo. And it may be the word you need to help others with as well. But first things first. You – what does balance mean for you? Less work? Less obsessions? More yoga? More fun? More sleep? More you? More others? Only you can know where you need to focus this balance. Get yourself there now. And then be that example for others. Show the way and perhaps even support their balance when needed. The full moon this month is extra special for you too. Usually full moons shed light on what we need to know or see or understand. Be extra aware and notice what the moon wants to tell you in December!
Sleep potion: Purple is your color for sleep support Virgo. Keep some amethyst near your bed. Or just imagine surrounding yourself in a purple glow to help hold you in the night.
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Influenced by THE MAGICIAN
Everything you can imagine is real.
– Pablo Picasso
Can you laugh at yourself a little more Libra? Lighten up some of the trickiness. Go listen to Tone Loc and dance like no one's watching. For some reason it feels like you are trying to make something work right now and all I can think is – why is it the holidays? And the cards say, stop trying so hard and have more FAITH that this is exactly as it’s supposed to be. And your lesson this month is not just about that patience. Have you been judging another? This may be more subtle than you think so look deeper. So when you feel yourself upset or triggered by another – a partner, a business partner, a client. TURN IT AROUND. Could this possibly be a trait you also have and are judging yourself. Yup. Work it girl/guy/you.
Sleep potion: The sleep guides are speaking to you this month Libra. Listen for their whispers and wisdom. You may see owls on the most potent days!

It’s never too late to be what you might have been.

Your question of the month Scorpio – what do I need to see in order to claim my own gifts? The muse is circling you, just waiting for you to let them in. This is your sign that you are ready! It’s time to allow the artist within out to shine. And only you know how those gifts want to shine. This isn’t anyone choosing for you. This is you choosing for yourself. This is you finding yourself. It’s as if you are waking up in the morning and your fairy godmother is tapping you – go! Go share your magic with the world. You are ready and they are ready for you!
Sleep potion: Scorpio your bright ray of sunshine month doesn’t require as much sleep so trust in what your body is giving you and get out and spread your light!

– Dr. Seuss
Have you been overpreparing for life Sag? Avoiding experiences or creativity because you need more time to learn, to practice, to rest, to prepare. It’s time. Stop saying no. You are ready to shine and attract what is next. OPEN YOURSELF TO THE POSSIBILITIES. Yes I’m yelling at you because the cards are yelling at me. Tell them it’s time. It’s now! Things are happening, opportunities are coming. And they just have to not hide. And I hear the song saying, mind your own business. And I’m like NO. don’t hide Sag! We need you out in the world!
Sleep potion: Sag, for you the best thing you can do before bed is to write down what's bothering you. Get it all out on the page so you can sleep without having to think about or analyze in the wee hours!

The opposite of love does not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, its indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.

Your work is in the vision quest that will be presenting itself to you this month Aquarius. Get ready to see more of your path as you follow each next step showing you where you are going and reminding you of who you really are!! And while on this quest your work is to let go of the guilt and punishment of where and who you’ve been or not been. Focus on each next step and let those thoughts and worries dissolve as you see ahead to where you are going! The PAST IS THE PAST! Repeat if needed. THE PAST IS THE PAST! The past is not the future. THE PAST IS THE PAST.
Sleep potion: Do not go to bed upset or angry Aquarius. That is your rule this month. Say what you need to say. Get it off your chest. Or at least write it down to say later so you can sleep in peace!

– Thomas A. Edison
I see lots of orange around you, Pisces. Orange is the color of the sacral chakra. This is your creative zone. Can you harness that sacred creative sensual energy this month? Allow the energy of the sacral to guide every choice this month. What do you feel deep in your gut? What do you want to create? And then surrender. Surrender. Surrender. And LET GO AND LET IT COME. Don’t think about what has given you pause this year, just notice what your creative spirit wants to call towards it and trust it’s on its way to you. There is an opportunity here for you to be brighter in your creations.
Sleep potion: More neutral tones will support your sleep Pisces. Sve the vibrant colors for the day and let your room reflect neutral to call in calmness.
