June Snoozescopes with Angie Banicki

All you need to survive this summer? Your Washable Silk pj's, the AC, and famed astrologist Angie Banicki's Snoozescopes. Slip (and slide) into June with her hot take on what's in-store for the month ahead.


ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Influenced by THE EMPRESS 

“Our friends interpret the world and ourselves to us, if we take them tenderly and truly.”  – Amos Bronson Alcott


Let’s start with a little homework for you, Aries. Time to get nostalgic. Can you be a gatherer of memories this month? I love Google photo memories for this purpose. Look at seven years ago, five years ago, last month. See who you were, who you were with, where you were traveling.  These memories feel important for what you may be creating in life. Let them inspire you. Could be as simple as a glimpse of your past or perhaps they will jog the artist within to see something now with new eyes! I keep getting this message to tell you to set some prayers or intentions this month as well. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want before you go to bed each night. And when you wake up thinking about it, yup, ask then as well. You’ve got a glow around you attracting now so ask the universe to bring in divine coincidences at this time. 


Sleep Medicine: Do meditation with the focus: I am not my thoughts. With each thought that comes up, observe, label, and then let it go.


Picked for you:



TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

Influenced by NINE OF SWORDS, Rx 

“Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot.  In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.” – Oscar Wilde


Get ready for some abrupt change, Taurus. And it feels like it could be SO many things. Someone swooping into your life and changing its course dramatically. Or perhaps a move that you weren’t anticipating but that takes you to where you are meant to be! Or maybe your career is about to change course with a phone call that reroutes everything. All you have to do is keep speaking your truth, telling the universe what you want and then let yourself be directed and redirected as needed. There may be an element of chaos to this craziness but now that you know, you can laugh about how the universe is picking you up and replanting you. You may even feel so connected this month that you can anticipate this new world of yours. The summer solstice feels like a big one for you, my friend!


Sleep Medicine: Humming breathwork is your jam this month. Two breaths in and out with a hum and you’ll be out like a log. 


Picked for you:



GEMINI (May 21- June 20)

Influenced by 5 OF SWORDS, Rx 

“Empty pockets never held anyone back.  Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.”  – Norman Vincent Peale


Gemini, your work this month is to contemplate. Be the seeker of your heart. Be curious about what that heart of yours wants you to know, wants you to feel. Hmmm why is this happening?  What might this mean? And instead of needing an answer, I want you to let the questions pose more questions. Does that make sense? Oh what might this mean? Do I want my life to look this way? How is this person going to fit into my life? Who is going to be an important part of my life?  What does this feeling mean when I work on this project? How do I keep directing this excitement? And if you find your questions pertaining to suffering, to agonizing, to self-condemnation…well then I want you to remember that YOU are responsible for your life.  YOU. And only YOU can remind yourself of how you are creating your life and that ACCEPTANCE is crucial to creating a LIFE WITH MORE LOVE. And with all this contemplation – don’t worry about being right! Could it be that you just are not supposed to know? 


Sleep Medicine: Prioritize your body. Can you do five minutes of something for your body every night? Five minutes of  yoga? Five minute stretching? Five minute walk? Five minute squats?


Picked for you:



CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Influenced by ACE OF CUPS 

“If you have love you don’t need to have anything else. If you don’t have it, it doesn’t matter much what else do you have.” – James M. Barrie


Your intuition is your superpower this month, Cancer. And there’s something about how you are using it that feels very different than in the past. You may not be able to explain how you just know things. And others will be drawn to this knowing. They will trust and feel what you know.  So don’t hold back.  This isn’t the time to be shy and hold back. Especially with feelings in your heart. SHARE THEM. There is an overwhelming sense of love surrounding you now. I don’t think you can miss this. So just welcome how it envelops you now. Don’t worry, your super power will help you navigate these new feels. Music will be powerful for you now as well. If you read up on Pamela Colman Smith who created the Rider Waite Smith Tarot deck – the oldest and one of first decks, she used music to channel. If this is all crazy talk to you, well then just go turn on the radio and notice how the song speaks to you. 


Sleep Medicine: Two minute journal before bed. Try it. Just write down an intention. A thought you want to throw out the window. Write what's in your head before you hit the pillow.


Picked for you:



LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Influenced by KING OF CUPS 

“By your own soul, learn to live and if men thwart you, take no heed.  If men hate you have no care.  Sing your song, dream your dream, hope your hope and pray your prayer.” – Pakenham Beatty


Gains and losses. They are all around you this month. So just remember if you are feeling the loss, there are more gains coming your way. It’s like a plate breaks, and Amazon arrives with a new dish set five minutes later. That’s what I’m talking about. You lose the dream project but then walk out the door and bump into your soulmate. You lose the bid on your dream home, then you find out you're being transferred to another city. Just remember to keep your heart in the game. What is that magnet of yours going to attract in? It’s got some major pull this month.  Like pull that gets you in the club with barely a bat of your eyelashes. 


Sleep Medicine: It’s time to buy something fancy for your sleepytime. New eyemask?  Silky lingerie? Ear plugs and a sound machine? Buy yourself something special to help you luxurize your bedtime.


Picked for you:



VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Influenced by 2 OF CUPS, Rx 

“In this world it is not what we take up, but what we give up, that makes us rich.” – Henry Ward Beecher


I’m seeing 2’s and 5’s all around you Virgo. This screams lessons in partnership in the numbers.  How are you understanding navigating the spark between you and another. The spark when it sets you into marital bliss. And the spark that could fan your flame of passion or spark that heats up your anger. How will you do the dance with the others this month, Virgo? Say yes to that event where you might experience these sparks. Thinking about joining that group/club/neighborhood watch? Just do it and be open to who you might meet. New friend/foe/lover! And it’s okay to wonder how it will all fit in your life. And if you’re feeling frustrated with work stalls, money not flowing – instead of letting yourself go to a dark place, think like a risk taker and place a little more trust in your instincts that got you to where you are or what they are telling you in terms of where to go! 


Sleep Medicine: Visualize a glow of a beautiful pearl of magical protection that surrounds you when you go into your dreams.  Spend a minute wrapping yourself in this beauty to imbibe positivity into your dreams.


Picked for you:



LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Influenced by  8 OF PENTACLES, Rx 

“Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.  Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.” – Albert Schweitzer


Libra, is it weird I want you to do a photoshoot with your lover this month? Capture some loving moments together! If you can all month but make some conscious time for it. Single? Create some photo shoots of all the things you love – your pets, your nature, your favorite parts of your city! Focus on infusing love into those photos and memories for your future! Also I want you to notice when you feel like you are working too hard. Stop and take a moment to think about how you can shift that working mentality.  You are having downloads as to how you can work smarter not harder. No that’s not right - work with play, not with force. Workplay. Not workforce. And don’t worry, fate will help by bringing you the people, the masters, the visions to help you see it all Libra!


Sleep Medicine: Write down four things to be grateful for before bed. Or maybe just say them to your lover. Or say them aloud for your soul. Four things you are grateful for.


Picked for you:



SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Influenced by EIGHT OF WANDS 

“Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.” – Emily Kimbrough


Scorpio, where are you neglecting yourself? Seems something has been zapping your energy.  Is it a way of thinking? A pattern?  A person? A bad habit? It’s time for you to do something for YOU. Have you just been trying so hard for everyone else? Doing what they need of you without thinking about what you need for you. I’m telling you what everyone else needs right now is for you to do something for you. It’s time and everyone around you will be glad to see you not depleted anymore. Can you take a little vacation? Perhaps a retreat? Adventure an hour every day? Break up all your habits. Your regular plans. The way you are working. Keep it all moving.  Travel is my first choice for you. The most you can! Choose everything but work this month….


Sleep Medicine:  Can you do a little moon bathing this month? Let its glow fill you with its magical intuitive nature.


Picked for you:



SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

Influenced by 4 OF CUPS, Rx 

“Angry is just Sad’s bodyguard.” – Liza Palmer


Change is happening. Here it is being handed to you like a costume being handed to you when you walk into a party. What, you didn’t want to dress up? Change your attitude. What, you like wearing furries, you’re in luck!?  What do you think, you are leaving? This is the moment where you take the costume, suit up and get ready to become a new you. Or at least try it out.  The universe is handing you a bigger identity. Take it. Play it out. See how it feels to try this one on.  Maybe this new you is for the month, maybe for the year, or maybe forever. You just have to accept your superhero costume and get out there in the game.


Sleep Medicine: Make a sleep playlist! I’ll give you one of my favorites – Polo and Pan – Ani Kuni. It is based on a Native American lullabye. 


 Picked for you:



CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

Influenced by WORLD, Rx 

“Money is like manure; it’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around encouraging young things to grow.” – Thornton Wilder


Stop holding on so tight, Capricorn. You can let go and trust. It’s time for you to work on your abundant mind state. When you feel yourself stressing over dollars, bills, costs, your future financials. Stop. Reset. Think about everything you have right now at this moment. And visualize it growing into more and bigger and well mostly really just your heart feeling so much more full of love.  And I promise you, just about every time you try this exercise, money or abundance will hit you. Like you get a call with a work opportunity. You find a 20 in your old jacket pocket. You open your mail to an unexpected check. Go listen to the Four Agreements.


Sleep Medicine: Find a good Audible book you can listen to before bed. I just downloaded The Smell of Rain on Dust by Martin Prechtel


Picked for you:



AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Influenced by THE DEVIL 

“Enjoy yourself. It’s later than you think.” – Chinese Proverb


Ok so I guess I’m here to remind you the waves of emotions are still flowing, waving, ok fine probably tsunami-ing. But here’s the thing – when are you going to start riding them rather than letting them continue to try and take you out with their enormity? If you can at least ride you’ll feel through more smoothly rather than hanging on for dear life. Just try anticipating the wave of emotion and then being in it, with it, on it.  Sad – you can feel it, be with it, and on it. Excited, the same. Devastated. In Bliss. Trust in where it all wants to take you. 


Sleep Medicine: Cuddle. Cuddle. Cuddle. I don’t care if it’s with your stuffed bear. Get your cuddles in.


Picked for you:



PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Influenced by THE FOOL, Rx 

“The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.” – Eden Phillpotts


Will you choose ghost or spirit? Who do you see? You might have that choice now. Your connection to other dimensions, angels –  yeah that might be becoming a thing. You can sense 

when your grandparents are sending you signs? You feel like you are being guided in certain directions. Listen to all. Choose magic over fear every time. When money worries come up, practice imagining unexpected payments. When work stress escalates, see where you can visualize changes that create more play and less work. This is the month to play the game, “but what if AND THEN FILL IN A MAGICAL SOLUTION?” What if I lost this promotion because there is a job being created that is EXACTLY what I want to be doing and pays twice as much?  Play that game in June, my Pisces friends!


Sleep Medicine: Dance. I don’t think you have to dance before bed, but I do think you need to let your body express itself when it needs to and this will tell your body everything it needs to know so it can sleep best!
