CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
Influenced by the The Hanged Man
Music: Roads - Portishead
Cancer. June is all about letting go for you. Time to surrender yourself. Any sacrifice that you make will open up your life to something even more positive than what you let go of. This should be a reflective month if you are willing to look at how you might best serve your own interests by being willing to change. As a cancer, we know you feel things more than most of us. Try and connect to those feelings now without having to do anything about them yet. June has mars in retrograde so it's not the time to take action, instead to pay attention to the signs and what feelings they are bringing up. Look at the possible direction of your love life. Do you feel like it's worth fighting? Do you need to let go of controlling it?

Influenced by the 8 of CUPS
Oh Libra, now is not the time to decide. All you ever want is to find peace - peace for others and peace for you. So when your job doesn't feel at peace, you want to get out of there. When a relationship feels uncomfortable, you want to get away from it. Now is not the time to decide. This discomfort is there for a reason. You need to see what you do and don't want. You also need to see fears that have been holding you back. Why are you doubting things? What in you isn't sure? Why? Oh so many questions libra. Ask them of yourself. Meditate. Travel deep down to the dark parts of your soul. Put your happy go lucky self aside and face those parts that don't feel quite right. This is your chance to align them with all of you! Find ritual this month to help you. Go to a weekly meditation, go on a solo hike, or find a new mentor or inspiring book!

Influenced by the Queen of Pentacles reversed
Scorpio, you are healing stuff this month. This is your time to do you! You are getting ready for love in a bigger way. This month isn't about your career. Nope - now is the time to look back on your past relationships and patterns. Now is the time to carve some space for another. This could be a relationship growing closer, a new person entering your life, a new addition to your family. Gonna rise up and turn mistakes into gold. Scorpio, we know you can go deep - so now's your chance to go there and transform yourself. You are growing. This may not feel great now but when you move out of this growth phase, you're going to be a new person! Rise to the occasion.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)
Influenced by the 3 of PENTACLES
Sag, I got the chills writing yours. You are ready! You are moving upward and onward. This is your time! We have two full moons in your sign! It's as if someone gave you magic glasses. You are seeing the world through new eyes. You are still you. You're the same as you were before. But now you are ready for this new phase. It might be a little scary for you because you are stepping out of one truth for a higher one. You've gotten get naked before you put on this new set of clothes. You're open and vulnerable and unarmed. But then as you put on your magic eyeglasses, you see it doesn't even matter. You can handle anything because you are living your truth. Others are drawn to you because you have ceased hiding and are getting ready to step out in your new shoes.
CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)
Influenced by JUSTICE
This month you can't see it yet, but some very karmic stuff is coming up and out. Blinded by the light. You may feel like you're drowning in emotions and restless in your head this month. But guess what, your heart is being squeezed and shaken. How much can you handle? You are in for some surprises - some might be scary, some might be exciting. Just know that it's all going to make sense in the next few months. Sometimes we need endings in order for new ones to appear. You might decide to leave a job or a relationship now - or they might help you decide. Happy endings are coming - fight for what you need and want. And then when you know you've fought, be ready to evacuate.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Influenced by the 9 of PENTACLES reversed
Aquarius! You are in for some excitement this month! Get ready for the ride. At work, you've got an exciting new opportunity coming your way! Closer to the end of the month, this new project, new client, new person (probably a man with a big pocketbook) is going to be a big part of your career growth for years to come! Get ready for it! And know that this could mean part of the ride includes losing another client or having to give up a pet project. Ups and downs Aquarius - appreciate the ride.

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Influenced by the Knight of Cups Reversed
Music: Well Ok Honey - Jenny O.
Aries, now is time to slow your go-getter self down and rethink! This month is not one to make things happen. This is characterized by Mars retrograde till June 29th as well. The drive you feel to go make more money, sweep love off his/her feet - well that drive is hitting walls this month. So instead appreciate hippie life, spend less and love yourself more. Take this month to slow down and rethink some things. Go to a concert for inspiration or check out some new art. Just appreciate the settle and no your star will be shining soon enough! You may be at a loss about what to do with regard to your work situation if you are already employed. If that's the case, talk to someone you trust, seek out the advice of others who have experienced similar situations.
TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)
Influenced by the King of Pentacles
Taurus, you are grounded and inspired this month! You may even be thinking of planning a trip abroad - or going on one! You should be! Travel will transform you. And I don't mean the work kind. Even if you just need to go on a road trip, take a weekend out and go have some fun. You never know who you might meet or what will open up. Men are an influence on work shifts for you and it seems you will meet someone who has a dream job you never knew you wanted or who ends up offering you one later. Fun is bringing you career advancement. I know this can be tricky if you are a typical taurus, as you like being grounded and pragmatic, but the cards show you are due for some exciting changes and this month is a hint of what's to come next year!
