Pisces: 

Five of Swords

(Feb. 19 to March 20)

Pick your battles wisely, Pisces. Just as important as what you say is how you choose to say it. As you navigate this season, be more mindful of what situations absolutely need your input as well as what only requires your ability to listen. Is this something that demands more attention? Then by all means, go ahead and peacefully engage. The ability to discern is powerful.

Aries: 

The Sun

(March 21 to April 19)

Everything is working out in your favor, Aries. Yes, there have been some major challenges in your path, but you have overcome them all triumphantly. This is your moment to celebrate your abundance of blessings. You are radiant. You are confident. And you know you can handle anything that comes your way. Embrace this energy and remain positive as you move onward and upward.

Taurus: 

Four of Pentacles
Reversed

(April 20 to May 20)

Be generous, Taurus. How can you invite in more moments of joy with those you love? Don’t be afraid to spend a little money right now. Surprise someone with flowers or treat you friend to dinner. (And tip wildly!) You can't take that money with you after you are gone from this realm, so you might as well enjoy it through meaningful experiences with people you care about most.

Gemini: 

The Hermit

(May 21 to June 20)

Cherish your alone time, Gemini. It is totally OK to decline those social invites if you are just not feeling it right now, especially if you are finding other people to be draining. Engage in solo pursuits that encourage self-reflection in order to feel refreshed and figure out your next moves. You will rejoin the party eventually, but do what you need to do to take care of yourself at this time.

Cancer: 

The Tower

(June 21 to July 22)

It’s time to rebuild, Cancer. You have been through some tumultuous circumstances, major changes, and vicious endings lately. (I am so sorry!) But now it is time to pick up the pieces and create something new from the wreckage. This is your opportunity for a fresh start on your own terms. What will you create? Life can look however you want it to now. Cherish this moment of newfound freedom.

Leo: 

Ten of Cups Reversed

(July 23 to Aug. 22)

Adjust your expectations, Leo. You finally got what you wanted, but sometimes reality cannot live up to the wild fantasies of our imaginations. And that can lead to a lot of disappointment. Yes, every rose has its thorn, but that does not make the bloom any less beautiful. Incorporate the good with the bad to see the full picture and you will find a new appreciation for your current situation.

Virgo: 

King of Wands Reversed

(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Go full throttle, Virgo. It’s time to focus and step into a leadership role in your life. Let your passion for your current project propel you forward. Get consumed by this energy as you tenaciously pursue your goals. Nothing is stopping you now! It's not really your problem if others are intimidated by your strength and determination, so pay them no mind as you continue to speed ahead towards your dreams.

Libra: 

The Hierophant

(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Stick with the tried and true, Libra. If it isn’t broken, there’s no need to fix it, and you know what works, so why deviate from the plan? The treasure map you have been looking for is already within you, and you already know the ways of this path. You possess a wealth of wisdom and an abundance of experience, so utilize them and just keep going.

Scorpio: 

The Magician Reversed

(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Discover your hidden talents, Scorpio. Are your skills being put to their best use? It’s time to make a major change to maximize your potential and go beyond the usual expectations you set for yourself. Don't be afraid to take a chance, because you might be really good at it if you'd just try it out. Remember that true magic happens in unexpected places, as long as you remain open to the possibilities.

Sagittarius: 

Six of Cups

(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

Let go of the past, Sagittarius. Memories from another time are coming back to haunt you, but that does't mean you need to go back there. Think of that time as more of a lesson that offered you a new perspective on your current situation, rather than a place you actually need to go back to and reside in. There is a very good reason that you left that part of you behind.

Capricorn: 

Knight of Cups Reversed

(Dec. 22 to Jan.19)

What are you avoiding, Capricorn? It’s time to stop holding back your emotions and put your feelings into words. Difficult conversations only feel more challenging because of the uncertainties building up in your mind, and the best way to release the pressure you are putting on yourself is to just confront the situation already. Let others know how you really feel. Don’t be afraid to be honest and speak from your heart.

Aquarius: 

Strength

(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Remain calm, Aquarius. Others are desperately trying to pull you into their drama, and honestly, is all of it really worth your energy? Take your time, consider the possibilities, and remember to breathe. Just because everyone else is riled up, it doesn't mean you need to lose your cool. If you absolutely must get involved, choose the most peaceful approach, and then just keep it moving.
