(March 21–April 19)
mother of cups. Ahhh… Get ready to experience waves upon waves of nurturing good feels, Aries. Gentleness will be popping into your life at every corner: through people, through art, through experiences and events. Open up and receive it. Absolutely do not analyze these experiences or try to guide/influence them! Simply let them come and bask in the glow. They’re here to take care of you and do not require any help in doing this, so relax, already. <3 Also, look for ways you can quietly nurture and support others. Nothing needs to be actively “done” in that respect; the people in your life just need to know you’re there. It’s not the time to make anything happen or give any advice. No need to pull strings or go to massive trouble. Just being there and listening and loving is enough.
April 20–May 20
9 of wands. It’s been a long hard road, Taurus, and in the past month you’ve probably come close to giving up any number of times. What’s the point of sacrifice, tears, and superhuman effort, again and again, if the prize is forever off in the distance? It hurts and you’re tired. So many times, the universe will hurl one last lesson at us just before we hit success. That’s the point where so many will break down and give up, never reaping the benefit of what they’ve worked so hard to attain. But they were so close! They could almost taste the glorious riches, only to turn away and fling their napkin on the floor. You know what? This is your month. This is when it all comes to you. You are that close. Just take a deep breath and hold on for this one last burst of energy that’s required. Then it’s yours. And it’s going to be incredible. <3
May 21–June 20
8 of cups. Whew! Looks like there’s been a fair amount of emotional turmoil in the recent past, Gemini. Dashed hopes, rejected love, bitter disappointment… Any of these ringing a bell? Don’t worry–the painful issues have already taken place and now as we stand poised at the beginning of the new lunar cycle a most beautiful thing is happening: you hold the keys to what happens next. It is a moment of intense self-empowerment for you. You can literally walk away from this recent wreckage and begin happiness anew. Sometimes it’s incredibly difficult to walk away from heartache because the heart wants to remain in that sorrow a little longer, wants to linger with the possibilities and is not ready to move on. The wonderful news for you right now is that this walking away will be easy and invigorating. The wounds are healing rapidly. Enjoy the new!
June 21–July 22
2 of swords. This month we see two opposing points of view presenting themselves in your mind, Cancer. Two opposing potentials or choices, perhaps. Although they may not pertain to a particularly major or life-changing issue, the matter is significant enough that it’s at the forefront of your thoughts and not likely to be brushed under the carpet by ignoring it. Unfortunately, the desire to do just that—to ignore, evade, procrastinate—will be huge. It’s almost like you’ve already decided to put on your rose-colored sunglasses, stick your headphones in, and hit the pool. It’s summer, after all! But although this issue is small now, failing to confront it soon could lead to more serious measures needed in the future. It’s like a tooth that hurts a bit and needs a tiny filling, but you don’t want to go to the dentist, so you wait until it becomes a RAGING infected toothache requiring an expensive root canal and a horrifying, soul-searching crisis as you sit under the drill reviewing all the mistakes you have made that led up to this point. Do you read me? GO TO THE DENTIST, Cancer. Sort these thoughts out while they’re still easy to manage.
July 23–August 22
6 of wands. This is going to be a special month for you, Leo. There has been difficulty in the past—a small issue, maybe, but one that was a repeated pattern of failure or frustration, building upon similar failures that came before. That does something to the human spirit, you know–it chips away, it causes doubt to form. You can second-guess pretty much anything about yourself and your value, if you are beaten down enough. However, now is the time when you’ll be rising above your past and emerging with newfound confidence, energy, and yes, beauty. Your prior difficulties have not only strengthened your character, they’ve altered the way you look on the outside, too, and people around you will take notice of this new version of you. Enjoy the exhilaration and the accolades. And utilize this fresh, rejuvenating energy to propel yourself forward into the next creative endeavor.
August 23–September 22
Chariot. Wow! Hold onto your hats, fellow Virgos: we’re going for a ride! All that relentless self-improvement, study, and analysis over the past few weeks (years??) is coming to a head as we find ourselves with enormous personal power and drive heading into this new lunar cycle. We’ve studied, we’ve experimented, we’ve fought, we’ve failed, and we’ve succeeded. Now it’s time to level up. Be clear on your destination because we’re heading forward fast, and it’s possible we could get dragged off into areas unknown/unwanted if we don’t take firm control of the wheel. So let’s set our course clearly. Let’s set our eyes on that point on the horizon we know will look and taste and feel the best and then get cracking! And let’s do it with flair! Glamorous hairstyles and dressing for the occasion never hurt anybody, dahlings. Think expensive.
September 23–October 22
3 of wands. Beautiful. It’s like you have magic in your hands this month, Libra. A lot of hard, basic groundwork was laid in the past few weeks or months, probably in conjunction with other people who worked together with you. Group activities, class-based learning, team projects, and the like. Shared knowledge. Now, you’re on the brink of heading off on your own. You’ve taken what you can from these outside sources and are poised and capable of leaping into the next phase solo. The most special part is that this next phase is of your own making. No one’s pushing you into it or telling you what it will/should be. It’s all your intention, your creation, your vision. What’s it going to be? Think BIG and in technicolor! For real! You’ve got the power to make it manifest.
October 23–November 21
3 of cups. Aw, it’s going to be a cheery ol’ few weeks ahead, Scorpio. This is a card of simple pleasures, of the calm yet profound satisfaction that comes through friendships and the social sphere. It is not about creating the new, but enjoying the now. There are no battles to be fought and no pressing projects to be completed (or if there are, they will play out quietly, in the background). Rather, there are joyous parties to attend, friendships to support, and thoughtful little ways you can show your love and appreciation to others. Surprise a friend with a tiny gift. Meet someone after work for a coffee and a shared dessert. Appreciate the stars. A friend of mine recently missed the last train home and so stayed out all night with his lover, seated on an inner-city stoop eating donuts and observing the ebb and flow of life that swirls between midnight and dawn. This is the type of feeling you want to be going for. Enjoy. <3
November 22–December 21
6 of cups. A sweet, poignant energy is drifting into your perception this month, Sagittarius—a slightly bittersweet energy, perhaps. You may find your thoughts turning to the past, or indeed, people from the past may walk suddenly into your life again, carrying with them the beautiful memories of your time together along with the slightly unsettling confirmation that those times are no longer real. The lay of the land has changed. The trick here is to appreciate the memories while simultaneously honoring the emotions that accompany your experiences taking place in the here and now. And also, recognizing how the actions you take today will be looked back upon and remembered one day. What kind of memories do you want to create? This month, check in frequently with your feelings. They will be amplified over the next little while and will serve as good guides if you follow the positive ones and walk away from the negative ones.
December 22–January 19
daughter of swords. The time is ripe for a significant information download, Capricorn. Listen. Whispers of knowledge are everywhere right now—in books and in people, yes, but also in dreams, in the symbols on street signs, in synchronicities, in the sudden clarity that pops into your head as you shampoo your hair or wait for the train. Be open and receptive to this knowledge because it’s not the kind of thing that comes around every day. It’s almost like a late-night radio program, the kind that you can’t always tune in to, and when you can, well, you drop everything to pay attention and hear as much as possible before the signal cuts out again. Might be a good idea to keep notes.
January 20–February 18
5 of pents. Ah, Aquarius, it feels like I should stop typing and give you a hug, maybe. There may be be some sadness drifting your way, or some physical condition designed to challenge or vex. I doubt it will be very serious, but it may annoy and depress. If this takes the form of an emotional ailment, I feel the best way to approach it is to experiment with being your own caregiver. Treat negative emotions the same way you would a physical ailment. It seems we have no problem taking a Tylenol for a headache, or sipping lemon ginger tea if we have a cold, but what about when we just feel bad? Work out what your own personal remedy is. Watching movies? Hardcore workouts? Being with animals? Experiment. If on the other hand an actual physical ailment occurs, of course please seek medical counsel, but also examine the mental cause of the physical problem—remember, thought always appears before the physical manifests. Anyway, this month could present a really fascinating opportunity to explore how your own body works and how you can heal and soothe yourself.
February 19–March 20
daughter of wands. New adventure beckons, Pisces, and you are MORE than ready to meet it! Your energy is the color of confidence, of daring, and of bold invitation, so play with it and see how these frequencies bounce off the experiences and people you come into contact with this month. Wear flowers in your hair and flirt outrageously with strangers. Chances are you’re going to make a big impression on somebody, so keep your eyes open for when this happens and how you’d like to utilize the opportunities it presents. It’s a good time to step a little bit outside your comfort zone, too—literally as well as figuratively! Has travel been tempting you, lately? Might be a good time to stick a big toe into the waters of a new land and see what happens next… And the next town over has the potential to be just as exotic as a town halfway across the world, provided you bring this amazing Wands energy along with you.
