Week of July 6th

ARIES: Justice

The astrological counterpart to Justice is Libra – your opposite sign. Its influence is impartial, objective, detached, and nonjudgemental. What you’ve waited for materializes, conflicts are resolved, and harmony reigns. You get what you believe you deserve and experience the world as an echo of your thoughts and actions. Cycles end and new ones begin. Remain firm in your heart’s desire, and your heart’s desire is obtained much more quickly. Balance, balance, balance! Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not yet here, enjoy today.  PS. The person on your mind may be a Libra. 

TAURUS: Queen of Wands

This Queen is businesslike and exuberant about everything she does. She seems to have inexhaustible reserves of energy, a flair for drama, and passion for everything she believes in. Expect an improvement in work and good news about work in general. If your boss is female, she is firmly in your court. News is on the way about an issue or situation that has concerned you. You may move house,  or refurbish/remodel your current home to sell it. Sell stocks, buy land. Romance may be marked by passion and intense emotions, expect the unexpected. Follow your hunches. 

GEMINI: Ten of Swords

You’re facing forced change and the final resolution of a situation or the dramatic end of a cycle. You give up on a lost cause and get on with the true meaning of your life. Ultimately, you feel relieved, accept the inevitable, and move on. Despite the harsh depiction of this card in most decks, it isn’t about death, it’s about endings, and sometimes misfortune. Sometimes it spells the end of a relationship, a situation, or a particular time in your life. The loss can seem worse than it is because it feels unexpected and ends something you had been counting on. Actually, the worst is over, and it’s time to take out the trash before you can move forward. You’ve experienced disaster and survived. There is little left in your life to fear. 

CANCER: Seven of Pentacles 

It’s time to take stock. Evaluate your achievements and trust that the projects you’ve set into motion can now move forward under their own momentum. You may be tempted to rest for a bit, but it won’t last long. Your inspiration urges you forward. Through the honest appraisal of your needs and desires, you attune yourself to deeper levels of awareness. Take your cues from synchronicities, hunches, and intuitive hits. You have what it takes. Everything in your life is up for review. You may be examining your personal relationships, your work, and your purpose on the planet. The answers are less important than the process. Life unfolds from the inside out, not the other way around. 

LEO: Queen of Cups

She’s the prototypical compassionate nurturer. She showers her love and kindness on children, animals, environmental issues, and the causes in which she fervently believes. She excels in medicine and metaphysics and could be a psychic, healer, astrologer, tarot reader, actor, or investigator. She’s spiritual and loving but also sexual and secretive. A new work opportunity may come to you that hits you just right. It’s satisfying and uses all your skills and abilities. You may enter into a tumultuous, passionate affair, filled with sexual electricity – or a period of that with your current flame. Your emotions have a powerful impact on your health, and your spiritual path flows through all areas of your life.

VIRGO: Three of Cups

Your intuition blossoms, confusion lifts, clarity emerges. A pending matter reaches a happy conclusion. Estrangements are mended, old wounds heal and allow you to move forward. Finances are fluid, speedily going out and coming back in. You make a killing and then spend it on a big-ticket item, like a future celebration, vacation, or downpayment. Health is good, but you may be advised to cut back indulgences. Group interactions with like-minded souls lead you to a spiritual awakening. Through shared ritual, you experience a feeling of renewed peace and reverence. You celebrate life and share its wonder and joy with those around you.

LIBRA: Death

The Death card doesn’t mean physical death. It means transition, transformation, rebirth, and permanent change.  It is a revitalizing force that sweeps away the old to make way for the new. The astrological correspondence is Scorpio and the eighth house of death and regeneration. This change is required. If you don’t change willingly, something will force you to, then like a phoenix, you will rise, reborn. Do you have a compulsion to cling to old situations, no matter the cost? Expect a complete turnaround. Any loss results in benefit in the form of new, better, and more aligned with who you actually are. Transformation occurs as you release situations and relationships that no longer serve your highest good.

SCORPIO: Five of Swords

Linked with Venus in Aquarius, the five of swords portends a hollow victory. You win, but was it worth the effort? Is this what you really want? Examine your motives and ask yourself if you secretly wanted to lose in this situation. Perhaps you used or were victimized by unfair tactics. Either way, this card talks about a confrontation that brings pain to both parties.  Despite this, you’ll be able to confront the issues head-on and solve your problems. Sometimes this card indicates an escape from danger, breaking bonds, or a lifting of restrictions. Be especially careful not to turn your feelings of anger against yourself. Use your energy in pursuit of a higher cause. 

SAGITTARIUS: Two of Cups

Partnerships of all stripe are inherent to this card. Soulmate connections, romance, courtship, and passion that leads to marriage are all possibilities. Emotional balance, equanimity, and cordial encounters are available. Friendship and companionship are highlighted. It’s an ideal time to show appreciation for your friends and family and a good time to settle minor disputes and resolve past differences. Your heart chakra opens, you feel at one with the universe. You experience a deeper awareness of reality and harmony and connection to source. By uniting with another, you accomplish more than either o you could achieve alone.

CAPRICORN: Knight of Swords

The Knight of Swords charges forward, like Alexander the Great, conquering everything in his path. He is courageous and ready to overcome every obstacle in his way. Expect a whirlwind of social activity and a definite surge in your work. Go after your raise, promotion, a book contract, movie deal – whatever it is you want. You’ll find allies in unexpected places. Impatience works against you – listen to your heart, not just your head. Cultivate faith that what you need will be provided for you before you need it. Be careful what you wish for. 

AQUARIUS: Knight of Pentacles

The Knight of Pentacles isn’t afraid of hard work, and his adventures focus on practical matters like money and financial stability. Set financial goals and stick to a budget. Your finances are improving steadily but surely. You find your niche – or it finds you! You uncover a goldmine in a client or project, and you’re headed for professional distinction. There is the potential for a windfall when this Knight comes out to play – a winning lottery ticket, a significant book advance, or a profitable project. The big issues appear in your life all at once and trigger a search for answers. You don’t merely react, you deal with the problems and evolve. 

PISCES: Four of Pentacles

You want a strong financial base, and you’re willing to compromise your higher aspirations to attain it. Don’t be afraid of change, and guard against clinging to the status quo. Open yourself to new ideas. Loosen your Vulcan death grip on what is familiar: a job, material possessions, a relationship, or a particularly safe environment. You know that your fixed ideas of security and safety hold you back from fulfillment, but you’re too scared to change. You could be repeating old patterns in a new relationship out of a deep-rooted fear of abandonment. Find your inner comfort zone and use it as a starting point for chakra meditation. Act on the images and impulses you receive – they are coming from the deepest levels of your being.

Special Forecast

According to the CDC, cloth face coverings are recommended as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the cloth face covering coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice. This is called source control. This recommendation is based on what we know about the role respiratory droplets play in the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, paired with emerging evidence from clinical and laboratory studies that shows cloth face coverings reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth. COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet), so the use of cloth face coverings is particularly important in settings where people are close to each other or where social distancing is difficult to maintain.

  • CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  • Cloth face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.
  • Cloth face coverings are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings.
  • Cloth face coverings should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Week of June 29th

Aries: Justice

One cycle ends, and another begins. Contracts are made or broken. Legal matters resolve in your favor, any financial darkness you’ve been facing is illumined, a windfall shows up just in time to tide you over. Balance! Are you working too much and overeating, not getting enough rest or exercise? Allow yourself to flow with the cycles of nature to improve your health and well being. Walk in the woods, or by the beach under a hot sun. You benefit immeasurably by living in the now. You are between cycles, yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not yet here. Enjoy today.

Taurus: Seven of Swords

Don’t allow others to take advantage of you. State your convictions, and don’t be browbeaten into doing what you don’t want to do. When you’re negotiating a deal, play your cards close to the chest, and you’ll outsmart the opposition. Are you running from something – commitment, responsibility, hard work, love? You may be procrastinating, letting problems slip because you don’t want to deal with them. Sometimes we just have to face what has to be met. Take heart, this too shall pass.

Gemini: The Sun

You feel empowered because your goals seem brighter than they have ever been. Embrace your destiny and realize that you created it. By saying yes to opportunity, your life opens into new vistas. You love your work. Your productivity and creativity are recognized and appreciated. Someone new may capture your heart, or you and your significant other experience a resurrection of an earlier passion. Luck tags your heels, your earnings increase, your raise or loan comes through. You have survived the darkness, now follow the light.

Cancer: The Emperor

Something you desire is starting to appear in your life, even if you can’t see it yet. Your most significant strength is the power of your will. You view every obstacle as a challenge. Through visualizations and affirmations, you make your intention and desires clear, and the universe responds—the more focused the intent, the faster the manifestation. You feel a sense of peace about where you are and where you want to be. Carve out your personal spiritual space for an altar, a vision board, or just some extra time for yourself. Be alert for synchronicities.

Leo: Three of Wands

You’re poised on the threshold of success, and your past efforts are starting to pay off. You’ve reached a significant milestone, you’re on solid ground and have confidence concerning long-term plans. The change you’ve been waiting for is within sight. New orders arrive for your product or service; people who have heard about you via word of mouth come knocking at your door. Any loans you may have applied for are approved, and finances increase. The news is good. You possess the power to bring about your heart’s desire.

Virgo: Three of Pentacles

You’re moving up in your chosen career and building a foundation that will last far. Professional recognition puts you in line for a promotion. You may fine-tune a writing project, book, lecture, or presentation, but the basics are done. You will sell your project. Personal relationships mature, and you put past problems behind you as you move into a deeper level of loyalty and intimacy. You use your skills and abilities to create something beautiful and enduring.

Libra: Empress

Your life swells with abundance. Your ideas blossom and find the support they need because they speak to the hearts of others. Your openness and receptivity make you a good listener and an excellent counselor. Your home is warm and inviting and filled with good food. It is also your sanctuary, your sacred place. It’s a good time for investments; the check really is in the mail, and the raise you’ve been hoping for comes through. Financial obligations ease up. By embracing the practical aspects of everyday life, prosperity finds you. Nurture all that you are, so that you become all that you can be.

Scorpio: King of Swords

You are being put on notice: it’s time to cut away from old ideas and beliefs that have outlived their purpose. Be fair and logical when dealing with others, visualize the events resolving for the highest good of everyone involved. Though your mental prowess is powerful, listen to your intuition about a situation, too. Your link to your significant other or someone you’re dealing with is rooted in the intellectual curiosity that leads to a deeper emotional connection. Your sharp mind cuts right to the heart of any matter, which brings great benefit to you and others.

Sagittarius: The World

A feeling of completion, success, and fulfillment is here for you now. You’ve reached a deep understanding of the issues that concern you. You’ve begun to realize that everything in life starts within and radiates outward, that your most private beliefs create the reality that you live. Everything is available to you. It’s time to free yourself from restriction. Expand your horizons. You’re ready to reap your rewards and move on to a new phase. If you’ve been working on a project that seems like it will never end, be assured that the conclusion is near. By transcending the ordinary and balancing your connection to the physical and spiritual planes, you glimpse the more profound meaning and purpose of your life’s journey.

Capricorn: Queen of Pentacles

You rule your home and office with equal efficiency, a practical go-getter seeking tangible solutions. You come up with a business plan, strategy, or publicity campaign that your coworkers or employees can implement effectively. Your family looks to you for this same kind of guidance. Professionally, you build on past achievements and are recognized for them. You love what you do, but you’re happiest in your personal space, surrounded by books, music, animals, and plants, the private world you’ve created. Your Midas touch works so well, you don’t question it, you go with the flow. Your intuition and reason work beautifully together. Everything seems to be clicking into place.

Aquarius: Four of Cups

You have choices, but you may consider them to be without merit. Take a second look; something presented is better than you think. If you feel like the future seems bleak, check-in, and make sure that any depression hasn’t grown roots and become more than a passing mood. Don’t disregard opportunities for growth, renewed happiness, and satisfaction. You need a new source of income, but keep overlooking the obvious. Reconsider opportunities or investments that you’ve flat-out rejected. Things aren’t as bleak as they appear to be. Reevaluate your life and relationships to uncover possibilities that you may have overlooked.

Pisces: Ace of Pentacles

A fresh start in all areas having to do with career and finance. Huzzah! Material gain, prosperity, and success are at hand. Something new is emerging in your life. You begin a venture that brings positive financial changes down the road. The timing is right. Don’t be afraid to initiate a plan that seems a bit risky. The money you invest now comes back to you with interest. You find a long-sought solution to a troubling professional problem. A new job or career change is in store for you. Meditation helps ground you. You have the power to manifest your plans, ideas, and dreams.

Week of June 22nd

Aries: 

If you’re feeling stuck or indecisive, listen to your intuition to help you make a decision. Sometimes life feels as if it’s at an impasse while we wait for more information on the next right steps to take. Occasionally, we must be the decision-makers, and this is one of those times. What do you want, Aries? Instead of allowing life to push you around like a canoe without oars, take charge and set your own course. Know that you have all the resources you need to pull yourself out of any situation, as long as you make a clear decision. Your decisiveness will act as a catalyst to clear the way for your manifestation.

Taurus: 

YES. Your intuition is correct, take action accordingly. You’re reasonably sure about your next move, and this is validation. Your intuition is accurate, and you can trust it completely. The joy you feel knowing that your intuition is valid might be tempered by the fear of making life changes. Take heart, the details will all be taken care of. You are supported in all ways as long as you ask for help and then accept it as it comes to you in various forms. 

Gemini: 

You’ve been very hard on yourself lately, using harsh words toward yourself verbally/mentally. It’s healthy to hold yourself up to high standards, as long as you don’t slip into self-abuse. We all make mistakes, and it’s valid to feel regret sometimes. What’s important, though, is how you handle your mistakes. If you bring your focus back to your positive attributes, your self-esteem will increase, and your stress level will lessen. Guilt is the opposite of love – and your guilt helps no-one. On the other hand, your love and coming from a loving place elevates everything and everyone you come into contact with and raises the vibration around you. Forgive yourself.

Cancer: 

It’s time to let go of the old and worn-out so the new can come in. Make room. First, let go emotionally and intellectually. Say goodbye in your mind and heart. Once you do this, the physical “letting go” will happen organically, in a very peaceful and harmonious way. There is no need to plan, scheme, or worry about how to let go, or how the replacement will unfold. Just put all of your energy, faith, and intention into knowing that you’ll get precisely what you want and need in perfect timing. You’ll know very clearly when it’s time to take action. Until then, stay lovingly detached from your old situation.

Leo:

If you take action now, you’ll miss a window of opportunity coming up for you soon. Don’t worry, you’ll know in your heart and your gut when that moment arrives. In the meantime, meditate and make sure that your breathing is deep and frequent. (Sometimes we hold our breath or take shallow breaths when we’re stressed out). You’re on the verge of receiving new information that will alter the course of action you plan to take, leading you in a more positive direction. Your patience now will grant you a much sweeter outcome than if you rush forward without the additional information. Trust. Affirm: “I am in the right place at the right time.” 

Virgo:

Although you’re busy with responsibilities, it’s essential to take time to connect with your friends. Make a date with someone in your friend group for some old fashioned companionship and frivolity. (Virgos need this reminder in general – and even more so now).  When you play and laugh, you open yourself up to infusions of healing love. Friends help us remember how lovable we are and give us support without wanting anything in return. Play stimulates creativity, which will help you return to your responsibilities with a refreshed outlook and increased energy. You have lovely friends; spend time engaging in playful activities with people who love you and make you feel good.

Libra:

You have some father issues left to heal. The healing doesn’t need to take a lot of time. It merely requires your willingness to be free of any old anger, grief, or fear related to your male parent. Masculine energy is expansive, and giving, feminine energy is nurturing and receptive. If we’re unhealed concerning our father, the Universe seems ungenerous. If we’re unhealed toward our mother, we won’t accept the gifts that the Universe offers us. The more you focus on the spiritual truth of your father, the more your heart will be receptive to the Universe’s continuous and all-encompassing giving. Accept your rightful bounty. Focus on the love that is the spiritual truth of your father. Let go of everything but the love and the lessons.

Scorpio:  

You’ve endured storms over rough seas, but now the way is clear and smooth. You can expect the best from now on. Wash away the negativity from your consciousness and only hang on to the positive lessons and the love. Let go of anything that could weigh you down – like resentment or bitterness. Release any old habit patterns of negativity and affirm: “I now release the need for this experience.” You’ve extracted the lesson and can move on peacefully. You’ve turned a corner, your prayers and your positive thoughts are reflecting in your daily reality. The worst is behind you.

Sagittarius: 

It’s important to think only about what you desire, not what you fear. Monitor your thoughts. We have no neutral thoughts; every one of them creates an effect in our lives. Be vigilant in only holding positive thoughts. Most of us slip into negativity occasionally, and that’s human. Just make sure you don’t camp out there. Process the feeling and let it go. Then, follow it up by holding a positive affirmation of your true desires. During this critical part of your life, you have the power to manifest your highest potential at the most rapid rate possible. Wield this power for good (yours and others).

Capricorn:

You’re a giver and a helper – you give to others in a multitude of ways, and you enjoy it. So when you allow others to give back to you, they experience the joy of giving. You provide them with a gift each time you allow yourself to be a gracious receiver. When we receive, we replenish ourselves and balance the male and female energies within and around ourselves. By allowing yourself to receive, you wash away stagnant energies, bringing in new forms of abundance, creative ideas, and opportunities. Even the smallest act of receiving brings healing. It’s an essential step in the manifesting process. Receive without guilt or apologies.

Aquarius:

You’ve been trying to rationalize that some situation is okay when it absolutely isn’t. You’ve settled for way less than you desire and deserve. You don’t need to compromise! The Universe will help you heal, and the troubling situations in your life will be removed or replaced. Take time today to visualize and dream about your true desires. Don’t worry about being disappointed. You deserve a great life, and you have the power to accomplish it! The minute you ask, the Universe will rally to support you in making it so. Fear and worry slow down your manifestation, so keep releasing all your cares and doubts. It may be daunting to level up on your journey, but you’re ready. Reach for the stars, you are both qualified and deserving of these gifts. Open your arms and receive them.

Pisces:

Sometimes we get into ruts and routines because they feel safe and comfortable. It’s time to swim outside of your comfort zone – take risks and explore new ways of thinking, making a living, or being in relationships. When you commit to explore and experiment, the world responds by giving you unique and beautiful experiences. You don’t need to settle into these new ways permanently, just test the water and venture outside your current path. Sometimes we experiment and learn new things and then return to the comfortable, established patterns having changed for the better. Reach out, enjoy new options, try something new, you won’t regret it.

Week of June 15th

Aries

The resolution of an argument or misunderstanding is near. Everyone involved in the situation is ready to forgive and forget. Be open to seeing the other person’s point of view; this will help soften any hard feelings. As you allow compassion to enter into your thoughts and actions about the situation, love’s healing power helps everyone’s needs to be met harmoniously. Accept an apology, see the humor in the situation and let compassion guide you towards the highest good for all involved.

Taurus

You’ve given a lot of yourself lately, and now it’s time to give back to yourself. Take good care of your body through sleep, detoxification, and exercise and take care of your needs the same way you’d take care of others. To have more energy, abundance, peace, purpose, and all you desire, nurture yourself. Balance giving to others with receiving for yourself, honor your inner voice. Allow yourself to rest.

Gemini

As a sensitive and aware person, you’ve absorbed some discordant energy from other people, and it’s time to clear and shield yourself. You can also clear and elevate the energies in other people, your home, or your workspace with crystals, sage, or by calling in Archangel Michael. Wearing or carrying crystals can help to buffer harsh energy situations as well. Stay clear of harsh or toxic substances, environments, and relationships. Keep your thoughts as positive as you can to keep your energy clear and clean, and eliminate clutter to clear the energy in your home or office.

Cancer

It’s time for you to go away from a toxic situation or toward something desirable. It’s time to make your move; conditions are ripe and perfect — the Universe will back you and support you. Quit your job, leave a toxic relationship, move to a new location, start a new project, take a vacation (or a staycation!). Start to take better care of yourself physically, spiritually, and emotionally. The time is now.

Leo

You’ll hear your divine guidance better by slowing down, getting quiet, and listening. Shut out life noise like TV, smartphones, and social media. Get centered in a quiet place and listen to your breath and the rhythm of your heart. Then ask questions of your guides and your higher self. Listen to your inner truths as you feel them in your heart, body, and mind. Trust your intuition and use it to take appropriate action. Admit your feelings to yourself.

Virgo

The guides are showing you being in or wanting to have a relationship with a soul mate or Twin Flame. To cultivate this kind of partnership, you must follow your inner guidance, embrace your personal growth, and have faith in divine timing. Once twin flames find one another, everything in their lives reaches new heights of love and light. Keep your heart open, stay positive, and follow your guidance to manifest your prayers about your love life.

Libra

Your artistic talents demand creative expression! You have hidden talents that lie dormant, and this trapped energy can make you feel restless and anxious. Even if your abilities are unpolished, they need an outlet. Make time to draw, paint, sing, play music, write, take photographs, make jewelry, sew, dance, or cook! Express your true feelings. Your life’s purpose may involve being an artist and expressing yourself creatively.

Scorpio

You have the power to resolve a situation that’s weighing on you. You have untapped magical abilities that you’ve used successfully in the past. (Remember?) Pull these abilities out of storage and use them to work your magic now. Your clear and focused intentions, positive expectations, prayers, decrees, and action steps all create the healings and manifestations you desire. Have faith in a positive outcome.

Sagittarius

A sign of healing is here for you now. Your divine healing power has awakened, and you feel compelled to help others heal. You want others to experience and enjoy the same health, vitality, and abundance, you have found and created for yourself. Let go of fear or restrictive thinking and open up to all the possibilities. A long term illness or injury is healing. It’s an excellent time to study healing modalities or to shift into a healing career. You are now deeply connected to the power of healing and its ability to clear energy.

Capricorn

You’ve attracted certain people or situations because they mirror your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs. You’ve shifted in your belief system, calling new and more aligned energies into your life. Simultaneously, you are letting go of energies that no longer resonate with your spiritual path. Everything and everyone you draw into your life vibrate with your thought patterns. If you want to change what you attract, hold more positive, loving, and joyful thoughts. Visualize and affirm only what you desire.

Aquarius

Through persistent action and positive thinking, your dreams are manifesting into form. Stay in persistent mode and give any discouragement or lack mentality to the creator/universe/goddess. Your guides are doing their part to lift and buoy your faith and give you signs of progress on your path. You’re almost there, so keep going. If a goal feels too big, break it down into smaller steps so that you can get it done without feeling overwhelmed, and you can feel the happiness of your accomplishments with each action you take. Commit to your dreams for the long haul.

Pisces

Walk away from restrictions and be free! You hold the key. You have the power and the right to change your life so that you experience more freedom. Take a break from your regular activity to get clear about your desires and available options. The Universe will support you in your passion for expansion, creativity, and freedom. It’s time to leave a situation that you’ve outgrown. Question the validity of any rules you’ve imposed on yourself and be assertive. Say no to anyone who’s overstepping your boundaries.

Week of June 8th

Greetings my lovelies – here’s what’s on the cards for you this week! Enjoy!

Aries: Six of Swords

You are about to walk through a gateway that takes you away from your problems. The move may be a literal one, to a new living space or office, or a spiritual journey that plays out on a personal level. Either way, it represents a turning point. Your situation improves. You’ve made decisions that are now pushing you in a new direction. The future is still unknown, but you’re moving toward it with hope in your heart. During this transition, help comes from unexpected sources. 

Taurus: Ace of Wands

Think new: creative beginnings, the birth of an idea, a raise or promotion, or a new job, new challenges, the start of a new enterprise. If you’re looking for a signal that you should proceed with whatever has sparked your interest, THIS IS IT! For some of you, this means, pregnancy or the birth of a child. For some of you, it means there is good news about a business venture, a contract a manuscript being sold, or an advance payment being received. For some of you, a new love – the chemistry is immediate and powerful. Spiritual rebirth is taking place. Follow your impulses, they will delight and astound you.

Gemini: Queen of Swords

You know how to cut through extraneous information and get right to the heart of the matter. You know when someone isn’t telling you the truth. Things haven’t been easy lately. You may have had to defend your position and fight for what’s yours. You’re independent with your own ideas and values, and you don’t entertain foolishness. What situations or relationships are you hanging on to that need to be released? Identifying and dealing with them is incredibly healing. Having overcome many difficulties, you can face the future with a deeper understanding of who you are and where you’re going. Well done, you. 

Cancer: Page of Swords

There is an opportunity for growth that comes in the guise of a problem or a dilemma. You may be tempted not to take it seriously or to avoid it entirely, but you are being urged to embrace it. Think of any difficulty as a challenge to test your mettle. When you accept and prevail, you become stronger and more resilient. If you’ve been working non-stop – take a long weekend to do what you love best. You’ll return with a fresh perspective and renewed energy. You may be e-stalking someone, or being e-stalked. You are a powerful thinker with keen insight into the human condition.  

Leo: King of Wands

An older man inspires you, pushes you to excel, and wants you to use your full potential. He encourages and supports your dream. Or YOU have this energy, and you are lifting someone in your inner circle. Innovative ideas flood in and improve your financial situation. Orders increase, people want your services. Stay open to the possibilities and opportunities that seem to come to you out of nowhere. Follow your impulses and pay attention to synchronicities. Your confidence is propelling you forward. Ride the wave.

Virgo: Judgement

Release the past and start fresh. Happiness doesn’t lie outside yourself. Take an honest look at how you have used (or misused) your opportunities, and then envision your future as you wish it to be. Once you do this, your life will change for the better. The ideas that you hold firmly in your consciousness will appear in your physical reality. Everything you’ve been working on is put to the test. Your project gets a green light, your customers multiply, your dream unfolds. You’re in the driver’s seat. 

Libra: Six of Cups

You may dust off some skills and abilities that you haven’t used in a long time. A missed opportunity needs to be reconsidered, and your past efforts bring future rewards.  Are you dwelling on past glory? Rethink your current situation and see the gifts it holds. Once you begin to believe your best years are behind you – that will become your reality. There are answers in forgotten skills, old dreams, and unlived fantasies. A former lover or school chum might turn up on your doorstep. You may receive royalties or win an award for your past efforts. Face forward, but appreciate where you’ve come from. 

Scorpio: Knight of Cups

A new kind of experience moves into your life that lifts your spirit and stirs your compassion. It will change your ideas about what is possible. Your tensions and loneliness ease as you find an emotional balance that has been absent recently. Approach your responsibilities and projects with intuition and watch how it all improves. You may experience sudden bursts of attention, flirtations, and romantic interludes or begin a new relationship. If you’re involved, you’ll get closer to your significant other. You delve into your deepest beliefs and emotions and reach a new understanding of how they create what you experience.

Sagittarius: Seven of Pentacles

Take stock. Evaluate your achievements and trust that the projects you’ve set into motion can now move forward under their own momentum. Having taken an honest look at what you need and desire, you’re accessing profound awareness levels. You have what it takes. Your hard work is about to pay off financially. Take time to feel pride and fulfillment and reflect on everything you’ve accomplished as it relates to where you ultimately want to go. Life unfolds from the inside out, and you are living proof of this fact. Take a little time out before you charge forward to your next project, you deserve it.  

Capricorn: Seven of Swords

Don’t allow others to take advantage of you, state your convictions, and don’t be browbeaten into doing things you don’t want to do. Play your cards close to the chest, and take steps to protect yourself. Somebody might be trying to pull a fast one in your life, but you will remain prudent and evasive. Sit pretty, and rely on your intellect and diplomacy. Nothing is accomplished with aggression. You’re going to take the sting out of the opposition by keeping your strategy secret until you’re ready to do battle. You’ll get what you need, even if you have to get it by going through the side door. Vibe serene and in control, because you are.

Aquarius: King of Swords

In chaotic situations, you see right through the confusion and provide the clarity needed for everyone involved to move forward. Other people often seek you out because of your eloquence and insight. Always truthful, your superpower is handling any situation honestly, fairly and honorably. You live by the highest ethical standards, and you inspire those around you to do the same. Look directly at any prosperity blocks – they will dissolve, and your abundance flow will resume.

Pisces: Eight of Cups

You’ve realized that the current cycle is over, and you’re ready to let go and move on to happier times. Moving on can mean a physical change, such as leaving a job, location, or relationship. It can also mean a fundamental shift – releasing old patterns, especially those that have dominated our thoughts and emotions. In stillness or meditation, you forge a new link with your higher self, following your inner voice towards new horizons.

Your most private beliefs create the reality that you live. Now is the time to free yourself from restriction. Expand your horizons.

Cancer: Strength – Two of Swords

Strength comes to you by harmonizing opposing forces. Instead of fighting an external beast, you tame it inside yourself. You have the innate ability to deal with whatever life brings, so draw on it to overcome the obstacles on your path. Use it to make the decision you are now avoiding. You’re immobilized by your own fear and caught in a place that seems to have no reasonable course of action. Dig into your strength and act swiftly. Doing so will turn the situation in your favor.

Scorpio: Ten of Wands – The Fool

You’ve assumed so much responsibility you feel burdened. You can certainly handle what you’ve taken on, but if it proves to be too much because of your other commitments, don’t hesitate to release it. Many of the burdens you carry are self-imposed. Make time to relax and enjoy life, and refuse to let real or imagined responsibilities overshadow your joy. Let go of some of it and start fresh.

Mistrust and unnecessary secrecy are more likely to lead to isolation than security. Even though it’s good to guard against underhanded people, suspicion can lead to paranoia if taken too far. You would love to get closer to someone, but your lack of trust keeps him or her at a distance. You sidestep honest discussion and then wonder why the relationship keeps stalling. To the other person, it’s clear your hiding your true feelings. Stop beating around the bush. Lasting happiness and new realms of intimacy and loyalty await once you resolve past problems. You have the chance to create something beautiful and enduring.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to Survive Retrograde Season

 

Most people see Pluto retrograde as deep and dark, but it’s a revitalizing force that brings us face to face with transformation – especially with any underlying, unprocessed trauma – or imbalanced power dynamics. Venus is making us all face our feelings, Saturn is socio-political and issues of cultural and social expectations overriding individual needs and desires (hi mask protesters) and more zeitgeist-y and Jupiter conjunct Pluto makes a harmonious trine aspect to the Sun which brings growth, good fortune, and happiness. I am ALL about this transit. It’s causing so much goodness. Even though it feels intense. Be gentle with yourself and embrace the change.

 

 

 

 

 

Week of May 18th

Aries

You are intellectual, analytical, articulate, just, and ethical, or you are being called to adopt these qualities. You stand firm in your truth and express yourself with deep conviction. As a result, others pay attention to what you have to say. You’re put on notice that it may be time to cut away from old ideas that have outlived their purpose. However, be fair and logical when making decisions that affect other people. You may be dealing with lawyers, physicians, judges, or the legal system in general. 

Taurus

Expect structures that have kept you imprisoned to break apart. Sudden, unexpected life changes that seem to crash into your life from out of nowhere are actually patterns that you have set into motion because of an inner urge to break free. If you feel you’re stuck in a rut spiritually, romantically, financially, or in your career, this influence will sweep your life clean and afford you a fresh start. The changes can be painful or simply just require you to have faith, the choice is yours.

Gemini

Are you passing up current and future chances for success because you prefer to dwell on past glory? If memories of being BMOC or a high school cheerleader fill you with nostalgia, rethink your current situation. If you believe that your best days are behind you, that will become your reality. Instead, use the wishes and dreams of your childhood to inspire your creative work. This retrograde season, revive, recycle, and reuse. You will find new answers in forgotten skills, old dreams, and unlived fantasies.

Cancer

You’ve reached the fork in the road and don’t know which path to take. There’s something about the situation that you refuse to see, causing paralysis and procrastination. Ignoring the problem won’t make it go away, the time has come to choose. If there seems to be no reasonable course of action available, call in an unbiased third party to help resolve the issue. If you act swiftly and decisively, you can turn the situation to your advantage.

 

Leo

Transition, transformation, rebirth, and permanent change is here for you, and it will revitalize your life by sweeping away the old to make way for the new. This is a permanent change, and it’s not optional. If you have been avoiding change and clinging to old situations no matter what the cost, expect a complete turnaround. You may lose the job you dislike or end the relationship(s) that you’ve outgrown, and it might be painful, but the rewards make enduring the pain worth it. Release anything that no longer serves your highest good.

 

Virgo

After leaving a bad situation in the past, you are rocketing forward towards your goals. Like Indiana Jones, you succeed through a combination of self-discipline, bravado, and sheer willpower. You may take a journey of self-discovery – either spiritually or an actual trip by car. You are in the driver’s seat, and you create your own destiny through your actions. A new vehicle or a move to another house or apartment in your same general area are possibilities. Through focused effort, you achieve your goals.

Libra

 

There will be a conclusion that ends a period of stagnation and delay. Your plans are nearing completion, good news is headed your way. It’s time to broaden your horizons. Try out new ideas, begin new projects and do your business in a new and innovative way. Your quick response to information that comes in will result in life-transforming experiences. Your open communication and complete honesty enhance all personal relationships. Everything will happen fast. One moment you’re a skeptic, and the next, you’re immersed in an experience that seems to slam into your life from out of nowhere.  It will light you up from the inside out.

 

Scorpio

A celebration is put on hold, and there is a delay in the purchase of land or a home. You want to move in with your partner, but you can’t due to circumstances that are out of your control. If you doubted yourself in the past or struggled with self-acceptance or empathy, you are finding a sense of balance within yourself. You now know who you are and why you’re here, you connect deeply to yourself and your inner being. That will help you go through any changes that come up now. Changing jobs, moving house, or leaving a relationship are all potentials right now. Any transition that presents itself is one you need to make. Embrace it all.

 

Sagittarius

“I’m fine. It’s fine, everything is fine.” It’s NOT fine, even though you may be trying to trick yourself into believing it is. It’s time to get real and confront your situation head-on. If you have a secret you don’t want to be revealed, it’s time to forgive yourself and confide in someone you trust. The stress and tension from keeping this secret are causing you unnecessary guilt and shame. Let it go, and you will feel lighter, I promise! The release will make you feel better. Any time your fear starts talking, get out of your head, and trust that you have everything you need. Have faith in yourself.

 

Capricorn

An opportunity for growth is coming your way disguised as a problem or dilemma. These kinds of challenges may not be your favorites. In fact, your instinct may be to detach from the problem instead of solving it. You need to attend to the broader issues in your life and embrace these problematic situations. They’re just trials designed to test you and help you evolve. When you accept the challenges, you will become stronger and more resilient. Honesty, reason, integrity and fortitude are the most helpful tools to use to get on track. If you are e-stalking someone, ask yourself why, and stop, because it’s more harmful than helpful.

 

Aquarius

Promising encounters loom on the horizon and synchronicities are regular occurrences in your life now. You are linked to a higher plane, a more evolved vibration. Inner conflict and indecision are resolved. You may even be experiencing lucid dreams and a surge in your intuitive abilities. Your life achieves a wholeness, balance, and unity, and everything is working the way it should. What you’re starting or planning today will reach far into the future. You’re on the right track. Your plans are about to bear fruit, your dream job lands in your lap, and you’re solidly on your way to achieving your highest potential. Everything works out better than expected.

 

Pisces

A new idea or breakthrough is emerging, and you’re still exploring what it means and how best to bring it into your reality. You’re seeking clarity about whether it’s something you wish to pursue more fully in the world and trying to determine whether it can pan out the way you want it to. Give yourself ample time and space to explore, meditate and get clarity before telling others about it. Alternatively, you may have also realized that an idea that you had is not coming to fruition in the way you’d hoped. You need to stop pursuing something that no longer has meaning to you. Get clarity on what you really want in life and set realistic goals to achieve it.

Is it time for a personal reading?  Together we can shift what’s stuck, gain clarity about what’s challenging you, and create a life you love.

 

 

 

Week of May 11th

Aries: Death/Four of Swords

You are tying up loose ends, taking care of unfinished business, and closing one door to open another. You’re putting the past behind you. Permanent, positive transformation occurs as you release situations and relationships that no longer serve your purpose. You will become who you really are, rather than who you think you “should” be. First, take a break, review where you are, consolidate your inner resources, and prepare. Focus your power and allow it to tap into the healing energies and restorative capabilities of the universe.

Taurus: Knight of Cups/Emperor

By taking the path with heart, a new country of the spirit opens up. Your dreams and intuition provide direction and answer your questions. Be alert for synchronicities, and for just a day, attempt to interpret the experiences of your waking life as though they were a part of a dream. Give yourself the security and comfort you need to achieve this by coordinating a plan to guide your own growth. Set the tone, provide the shape and the form that will allow you to delve into your deepest beliefs and emotions to reach an understanding about how they create what you experience.

Gemini: Ten of Swords/Strength

You experience the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. This is connected to the ego’s release of an idea to which it has been attached. You may experience a sense of relief as one portion of your inner struggle comes to an end, and you have no choice but to let go. You have the innate ability to deal with whatever life brings. Listen to your intuition and call on your inner knowing to manifest what you want.

You hold the secret to your own growth, open yourself to all possibilities.

Virgo: Five of Swords/Judgement

An empty victory is at hand. You win, but was it worth the effort? Is this really what you want? Examine your motives, and ask yourself if you secretly wanted to lose in this situation. Use your energy in the pursuit of a higher cause, but be careful not to get sucked into social justice warrior territory. You don’t need to shove the “truth” down everyone’s throat. Unlike most, you’ve learned how to integrate your everyday awareness with your higher consciousness. You have already, or are now waking up and realizing your real work and path in life. Go with this change of direction. Go towards the new, better life that you’ve created.

Libra: The Star/The Hermit

A new cycle of balance, harmony, calm, renewal, and healing is at hand. Your persistence and hard work are paying off big time. Everything works the way it should, in part because you’re linked to a higher plane, a more evolved vibration. Give of yourself with compassion through service. In doing so, you help others find the light. You teach, enlighten, and empower others, even though you realize you don’t have all the answers yourself. Keep listening with your inner ear for your truths to surface.

Scorpio: The Hanged Man/Eight of Pentacles

Think transition, postponed plans, and life in suspension. Adjust your POV, reverse your established order of doing things, and do a one-eighty in how you perceive something. The decision you’re waiting for is delayed. Events in your life are forcing you to look within – and in doing so, you realize that the inner reality creates the outer reality. One is the direct reflection of the other. Because you understand that your point of power lies in the present, you delve into the process and turn a talent, hobby, or interest into a new career. Practice the zen of day to day living with renewed enthusiasm.

Sagittarius: Page of Cups/The Star

Think expansion, new beginnings, creative and spiritual development, and the intuitive whisper that nudges you in the right direction at the right time. You may even pluck a book off your shelf that just happens to provide you with precisely the information you need. All things now seem possible. There is a new cycle of calm, renewal, and healing beginning for you and reward for all of your hard work and persistence. You’re on the right track, your plans are about to bear fruit. Promising encounters loom on the horizon, and synchronicities run rampant. What you thought was impossible now becomes possible.

Capricorn: Ten of Swords/Queen of Wands

You’re facing forced change and the final resolution of a situation or the dramatic end of a cycle. You give up on a lost cause and get on with the real purpose of your life. Ultimately, you feel relieved, accept the inevitable, and move forward. The good news is that the struggle is over, and you will now move into a place of renewal and healing. Your life now focuses on your work and spiritual beliefs. You’re filled with new ideas and possess the energy and skill to create the life you desire. Follow your hunches about the direction you should take.

Aquarius: Six of Wands/Judgement

With a combination of persistence, intelligence, and clear vision, you achieve a cherished dream. Despite problems or delays, you win. You get vindication, recognition, or reward for your hard work. You earned it through your drive, ambition, desire, and belief in your own abilities. Enjoy. You can manifest it again and again. You have awakened to your path in life. You’ve learned some incredibly valuable spiritual lessons, and now you’re putting them to practical use. A pending decision results in a green light for a project you’ve nurtured. Your dream unfolds, you are in the driver’s seat.

Pisces: Death/Emperor

Think transition, transformation, rebirth, and permanent change that sweeps away the old to make way for the new. This change is required. If you don’t change willingly, something will slam into your life that forces you to change. Then, like the phoenix you will rise, reborn from the ashes of your old life. Don’t cling to situations, no matter the cost. Release. Let go. When you do, the thing you desire will start to appear in your life. Every obstacle is a challenge. Through visualization and affirmation, make your intention clear to the universe.  The universe will respond in kind. The more focused your intent, the faster the manifestation. You can create the conditions conducive to realizing your heart’s desire.
