August Snoozescopes with Angie Banicki

August is here. Time to thank every Leo in your life (they are THE gift, after all). With the stage being set, tune in as our cosmic guide, Angie Banicki, tells you whether you’ll find yourself center stage or backstage this month.

ARIES(Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Influenced by ACE OF WANDS, Rx

Aries, first off, your creative genius is rearing its head (and magic wand) this month. Capture that magic by putting pen to paper, notes to music, or paint to canvas. The energy is flowing through you to create, create, create. And if you are trying to make a baby, well hot damn, this is the month to get your groove on! All that said, your Aries spirit, and your desire for fast results, will need to practice patience in some areas this month. Don’t get frustrated when it feels like you are waiting for that answer, that call back, that offer. PATIENCE is key. Go write, sing, paint while waiting. Also, this month isn’t one to get out and distract yourself. No, it feels pretty great to spend time with yourself. Read a good book, binge a new series, or take a class. Connect to the full moon this month, she wants to bless your creations. 

Sleep potion: This is the month to make yourself a midnight snack, Aries. You will appreciate the art of it. Make a tea if you don’t like snacks, but get yourself in the kitchen and settle your system there before bed!

Picked for You:

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)
Influenced by NINE OF PENTACLES, Rx

OK, let’s start this month being grateful for the financial wins. Let’s look at how well you’ve done and how many seeds you’ve sprinkled to create abundance. Focus on the WINS and the possibilities, sweet Taurus. When you find yourself questioning your financial future – rewind and give yourself tender words of gratitude. Then call your advisor, make the decision, ask for the raise. You are establishing a new pattern for your future, and that is exciting! It also feels like you could use some good ol’ fashioned NO’s this month. Don’t be afraid to hit next. And say not now. You know what you need. Trust that. Finally this magical month of 8 – the number of manifestations. I want to remind you that you do not need to have a perfectly designed direction.  Think of yourself as a brave adventurer, open to what’s coming, to help expand your life. And while Aloe Blacc is saying, “love chooses you. Now I do.” Let’s call in more love on your adventure, too. 

Sleep potion: Your homework is to channel Sleeping Beauty, Taurus. Go read the story again, and see what stands out to you. Or just go to bed knowing you are getting your beauty rest.

Picked for You:

GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Influenced by JUSTICE, Rx

There is a karmic pattern breaking here, Gemini. Don’t worry too much about what it means, but trust in the breaks – if that makes sense. Your intuition is on the next-level in August. So, REALLY listen to your inner guidance now. You are going to KNOW, and with that knowing comes power, but it also comes with an emphasis on patience. This means you need to wait for the universe to show you how you’re right about what you know. Community, friends, and groups play a big part for you this month, Gemini. Are you noticing when you leave certain people and feel drained? It’s okay to create space there. And don’t be surprised when you find new soul connections coming to vibrate with you on your level. Lastly, don’t be surprised if you find yourself intrigued by a new area of study. Something’s taken hold and you may want to dive deeper into that understanding. Go there!

Sleep potion: You know the story of the Tortoise and the Hare? Yeah, you need to channel the tortoise as you settle in for the night. More tortoise this month. 

Picked for You:

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
Influenced by THE MAGICIAN

Cancer, you know your power this month. And the first message to come through is how important it is for you to speak your truths out loud. No holding back now. Your brilliant voice needs to be heard. Share your wisdom, but also listen to that wisdom for yourself. It seems like there are things you are so clearly helping others with – but may not be hearing for yourself. Notice it when it’s happening. Next message! It’s important for you to express your SENSUAL side, as well. Where have you been closing yourself off to indulgence? It’s time to let your soul AND your body feel an awakening. It can be as simple as a bath, or spend the day hiking in nature. The Talking Heads are saying, I’m just an animal. What do your animal instincts ask of you now? GO DO THAT!

Sleep potion: Speaking of sensuality, Cancer, more nighttime sexy time for you. 

Picked for You:

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)
Influenced by THE DEVIL

Oh it feels like the extremes for you, Leo. How are you going to navigate some of these extremes? The devil says – don’t be tempted, don’t be in fear, and don’t be too materialistic. The ace of swords tells me there are some incredible options presenting themselves now. So just keep trusting yourself and listen to what your heart tells you is right! Billy Joel is saying it’s a matter of trust. It feels like there is a part of you saying goodbye to an old life. You can trust and let go and know that things are ONLY getting better. And remember, don’t be tempted, don’t be in fear and don’t be money hungry. For those of you who have been working on yourselves, the passion in your heart will be LOUD AND CLEAR. THIS! YES, THIS! And if you are missing the passion, MAKE SOME. Get your juju back and go create! Dance, make art, make meals. Create your passion!

Sleep potion: Breathwork is your game this month, Leo. You can go deep into this or you can just fall asleep noticing your breath. Either way, you win!

Picked for You:

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Influenced by KING OF CUPS

Virgo, your heart is calling kindred spirits into your life this month. Let them in! And let August be a time of noticing what’s filling you up. Who is bringing you more joy? Where do you find you can be your best self? Go to those people, seek those environments. And travel! Yes, travel.  Get yourself on the road, or on a plane. Spontaneous weekend trips feel exciting, too. There feels to be somewhat of a standstill in certain areas of your life right now, but do not let them deter you – instead, welcome the temporary standstill. Hence the travel and the new friends. You can live in the present as you wait for the other side. The other message coming through is to spend some extra effort giving back this month. This will help with what you’re calling in, and it will bring your heart immense love when you know you’ve given back. 

Sleep potion: Burn Copal and clear your room before bed. Set an intention of purity as you settle in, sweet lion.

Picked for You:

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Influenced by  3 OF CUPS, RX

You are going to be pleasantly surprised by trustworthy relationships in your life this month, Libra. Things happening on the love front may feel confusing or frustrating right now, but if you can stay out of fear and manipulation, you’ll allow life to give you exactly what you want and more. Can you do that? Can you give your heart all the power? Sideline your mind just for this month and watch what happens. This doesn’t mean leaning into temptations, but instead trusting what is happening in the relationships you are in. Let the attraction work itself out. Your heart will call out for you and be the magnet for what you desire. If you need clarity, or just an ear to listen, lean on a family member who knows you and will let you say what needs to be said. 

Sleep potion: Your voice is your sleep potion, Libra. No going to bed angry or holding in what needs to be said. And if you cannot speak it to the person, write it. 

Picked for You:

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Influenced by THE HIGH PRIESTESS, Rx

Well, it’s very simple this month for you, Scorpio. Just love. Love every piece of it. Love it all for what it is. There seems to be so much change happening around you, and if you try to force others to change with you, then this will be a difficult month. BUT if you can focus on the creative change that is happening within you and through you… and just keep on keepin’ on, then it’ll be easy. There is an element of the unexpected for you now, but when isn’t there for the bold? Burn it down, Scorpio. I cannot stress this enough, you are changing, and you CANNOT focus on whether others are changing with you. This is part of your shadow work. It could get dark if your mind lets it. So, open your heart, accept new contracts, go on new adventures, and FEEL ME FLOW. Yup, we all know you are tight with NAUGHTY BY NATURE.

Sleep potion: Your sleep medicine is to go read The Three Billy Goats Gruff. And see who speaks to you in there…

Picked for You:

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)
Influenced by ACE OF PENTACLES, Rx

Wow, Sag. This month has a very strong influence on relationships for you. For some of you, it may feel like some kind of karmic-destined, powerful person showing up to be in your life for a lifetime. For others, this may be a period of intense healing in the relationship you’re in. Also the advice this month is to recognize that the conflict coming up now is for a reason. Be in the conflict and fight the good fight for how you want to love! With your career, there is a level of confidence coming forward and you’ll start seeing different options or ways forward. Don’t be afraid to play with how your business can blossom into more of what you want. A path that will allow you to share more of your gifts. You are in building mode! Build the dream!!!
 
Sleep potion: This is the month to add a crystal or candle to your bedroom ambiance.  Really tap into what feels right for you, Sag. 

Picked for You:

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)
Influenced by 3 OF WANDS, Rx

Let go of the world you know, Cap! These cards feel like they could be quite dramatic if you let them. Or they could be incredibly exciting with a big dose of unknown. If you are waking up in the night, use this time! Use it to write. Use it to imagine adventures. If you find yourself expecting the worst, how can you spin it? Because in reality these cards are actually telling you, THIS IS YOUR LEGACY. Are you going to follow the spiritual guidance leading you, helping you to see your new path? PLEASE SAY YES. Unsure of a new (or new-ish) relationship? SAY YES! New business opportunities that allow you to be more of the boss? SAY YES! New friends guiding your consciousness in projects you’re involved in? SAY YES!

Sleep potion: Go to bed finding the positives in the complicated situations in your life!  And don’t be afraid of less sleep.

Picked for You:

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Influenced by 4 OF CUPS, Rx

Oh Aquarius, it feels like things are speeding up for you this month. Get ready to do some quick thinking. There will be decisions needing to be made quickly. Your work is to stay open to such opportunities and suggestions and to keep yourself in check. This is the month to keep yourself in check. Do not ignore the signs when you need some extra TLC. Book that massage. Go to that weekend retreat. Spend time resting. And also, don’t completely ignore work – show up to it and give it your all knowing you are taking the afternoon to rejuvenate. If you are feeling drawn to explore more of the metaphysical, astrology, tarot, meditations – then follow that draw, as well. You can beam yourself up into the cosmos with extra zest this month, Aquarius. If you know what I mean, you know what’s happening. Get up there!!
 
Sleep potion:  The Lion and The Mouse is your fairytale sleep story this month. Go read and see who you connect with, is it the lion or the mouse? You’ll know…

Picked for You:

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Influenced by THE WORLD, Rx

You are on the right path, Pisces. But first and foremost, whatever you may be questioning about what you shoulda, coulda done. Stop. You are exactly where you’re meant to be. Nothing is being withheld from you. You haven’t missed anything. This is a time for long-term plans.  Think positively about where you see yourself in 6 months, in a year, and beyond. And trust that you’re on your way. You may even be feeling signs from your ancestors that want to help show you how on track you truly are! This month calls for more dancing and singing, less structuring and planning.  You feel best in the in-between. So, live in that space. And trust it. I feel like the cards have been showing this for months, but I will say it again just in case – plan events with friends! This is your homework. Host a dance party. Plan a fun dinner with new friends and old.  I keep seeing you serving others through meals and gatherings!

Sleep potion: Your magic this month lies in the eye mask. Silky, with essential oils, make it unique for you!
