Aries: XVII The Star
You’ve never been shy about shining, but this month you have an incredible opportunity to shift into not just fire but pure solar power. If you have been holding onto an impossible dream, if you have suddenly come to understand that you have a calling or if you have always known that there is something more, now is the time to throw your coin into the well and make your wish. In fact, throw them all in. When you’re out of alignment, there is little chance of hopes coming true, but this cycle opens up a remarkable opportunity to join your sacred path to your open heart and go exactly where you’ve always been meant to be. There may be dark moments when your faith wavers, but be assured, it is worth pushing through to the light.
Taurus: 6 of Cups
Your future will be well served by acknowledging your past during this current cycle. There are keys to being your most vibrant, connected, and confident self back there. This isn’t about falling into the temptation to wallow in heartbreak moments but instead a chance to truly take stock of all you have survived, all you have accomplished, all you have grown to be exactly because of all you have been. It’s time to bring peace to memory and step into letting yourself be seen fully as you are in the present moment. Don’t be afraid to be the altar upon which you display your empowerment. Whether through appearance, action, or pure vibration, let yourself shine out in ways you haven’t permitted for years. Your future is calling, and it is able to do so because of every previous step you’ve made. Offer your history gratitude, and allow your next path to unfold.
Gemini: 10 of Pentacles
You’ve put so much effort into living a life you love the past few years. And not in short-term, temporary ways, but by facing mismatches head on, by reaching out for completely unfamiliar opportunities, by letting old patterns be torn away and new ones hesitantly emerge. And finally, at last, you are beginning to reap the rewards of the intentions which you have been pouring out. This isn’t just about understanding what you value most and so therefore knowing what you are going to spend your precious time on. It’s about realizing that you have laid down a foundation that will last for generations to come, that you have broken lifetimes of habit off of the subconscious family tree, and that every single person that comes after you will benefit from you leading your most authentic life now. Yes, it’s been hard - remarkably hard at times - but there is no longer any reason to doubt in any way that it has been absolutely worth it. This month, take a moment to honestly, reverently, and powerfully appreciate everything.
Cancer: XX Judgment
How quick you are to assume that a moment of judgment will be a moment of downfall and shame. What if it is actually going to be a moment of praise? A recognition of your evolution? A sacred honoring of all you have striven to become? In this human walk, it is so easy to believe that the worst potential is the most likely one, but it is time to let those very, very old patterns go and to step into a new comprehension: that you have been moving consciously forward each step of the way, and you are seeing the flowering of your life because of it. The divine gate is not about to close in denial. It is about to open in genuine welcoming. Only you can now fight the deep fight as to whether to walk through or instead to self-sabotage, doubt, and turn away. Know that if you do, it is not because of what lies on the other side. It is because of what lies only within you. It is time to let go of your old self, that one that you’ve truly outgrown, and step fully and vibrantly into the new. Show yourself without fear, and fearlessly let yourself be seen.
Leo: XXI The World
This is your time. This is your place. This is you being fully reborn into all you are. It’s not just because your birthday power is in full swing. It’s because your soul power has reached the next level of walking in the world. Be sure to take a moment to acknowledge the incredible journey that brought you here, not just in this life but through lives, not just in human action but in the entirety of your archetypal existence. Spend time celebrating the divine circles you have around you, the connections you experience every day, the community that sustains you with its spiritual sunlight shining bright. Appreciate every bit of it - because soon you are going to see that the pinnacle of one path brings you to the very start of the next great road ahead. Reaching soul-goals is never about an end. It is always about beginning again, more aligned and more ready than ever to seek what new bliss can now be revealed to your elevated sight.

Aran Goyoaga on Cultivating Love in the Kitchen + Meringue Cake with Roasted Apples From Cannelle et Vanille Bakes Simple
"Set a humble table and eat beautiful simple food. Nothing has to be fancy. When you make yourself comfortable, your guests will feel comfortable."
You stand so fully in your power when you are able to make things happen. You have a remarkably natural gift for being able to create a brilliant plan, arrange the smallest details, and then - unlike many of your astrological siblings - actually follow through on it all. But this month, you must remember to also refill those spaces you so readily drain for the sake of the good of the whole. This world greatly needs your ability to so generously serve, especially now, and no one will be helped if you run yourself into the ground and put yourself out of commission. Yes, share what you have and what you are capable of, but make sure you are pouring the same love and support out upon yourself. And no matter how hard, let others support you as well - an offering you often turn away. It is time to lay the chaos of imbalanced giving aside and to receive the equilibrium of being completely who you are.
Libra: 4 of Pentacles
Austerity and simplicity may not always be your most sought-after energies, but you will be remarkably well-served to explore the unexpected gifts of both this month. If you are honest with yourself, you will acknowledge that deep down, you’ve been craving a break from the constant input created by leading an outward-facing life, and this is the perfect time to sink into a little self-care and quiet - or even a lot of it. You have so much abundance in your life. Take a moment to stand in still gratitude for the bounty of it all, to truly recognize the ways in which you are surrounded in beauty and fortune, to stop fretting about what might be missing and instead just be. You have enough, and it’s time to start trusting that having enough is not a temporary circumstance anymore. Embrace that living in balance is not living in lack, and however your wealth emerges, whatever form it takes, believe that you are wealthy indeed.
Scorpio: 8 of Swords
The restrictions you feel on your life right now are uncomfortable, but if you use them well, you will uncover a whole new way of navigating to the places you actually want to be. You’ve spent too much time lately allowing your mind to have control, and as much as rationalism and intelligence can sometimes guide you efficiently, it’s time to explore the less usual options that intuition and subtle subconscious wanderings can reveal. Even in the moments you feel most trapped, there is a path leading away from your current frustrations available, but you won’t find it through pure logic. This month, stay adamant about employing unusual approaches each time you come up against a wall. Stay clear about the ways your mind tries to trick you into acting upon your doubts. Stay aware of how quickly reason feeds your fears rather than your evolution. Learn these things now, and you will have that knowledge forever for your future.
Sagittarius: 2 of Cups
There is such genuine fulfillment that you have access to this month. The thing to remember is, it’s only available if you are available. You can no longer live on the edges of your life and expect it to feel like you are in the middle of it all, and you can no longer pretend that you don’t want your heart and spirit unbound. The acts of creation that are waiting within you are going to be harder and harder to ignore because they are not just about you anymore - they are the brilliant gifts you are meant to share with the world in whole. You will not find satisfaction from holding back any longer, and there is simply no reason to do so ever again. By joining your walk and your soul, you are finally going to release the full empowerment of your heart, unleash the full beauty of your vision, and manifest the full fire of your sacred way. Step forward and declare your union with the Universe, and then just watch what unfolds.
Capricorn: Page of Cups
Rebirth may often sound like a naive dream to you, and you prefer faith in the form of - well, form. But this month will awaken you to a part of yourself that you believed left behind in memory, a nudge of reminder that circumstance sometimes does not appear random, that synchronicity sometimes feels like some sort of intervention, and that magic sometimes seems real. Allow yourself to let go of practicality and admit wonder, even if only in glimpses here and there. You need replenishment and hope as much as anyone, and denying that fact won’t make you stronger - it will empty you of what actually makes you as strong as you are. Your power comes from having sought proof of mystery over and over again, and having found it over and over again. Your faith isn’t based on wishful thinking. It’s based on experience. So don’t tip over the predictable edge into materialism. Open your heart just a tad, and stay carefully balanced on the inexplicable thread of divine.
Aquarius: Queen of Wands
You are ready to add fire to your starlit visions of the world and pull suns down from the sky to light the way. Though you are often content to sit in cool, compassionate observation of the circles that surround you from your galactic window, there is now a new sense of urgency filling your human bones and coursing through your human blood to fully take part in it all. Don’t brush this off as imaginings or as whimsical longings for more. You are being called to lead as only you can, through warmth and charisma, through power and charm, because right now leadership is needed, because hope is needed - because you are needed to lead the way. This work is not about climbing onto a throne. It is about walking the soil beside the plow, pulling the load alongside community, and bringing clarity to the change that is ready to come. You see what can be. It’s time to show everyone else too.
Pisces: 2 of Wands
Now that you have the world in your hands, what will you do with it? That is the question you will be grappling with this month, and while it is not an unpleasant one to be exploring, it is not necessarily comfortable. Don’t be afraid to look unblinded at the ways of being that may still be holding you back from living your vision, and don’t underestimate the power of your experiences to keep you bound in place. You have a choice now to treat your previous life as an unshakable foundation supporting your future or as an unbreakable anchor bolting you to your past, and your perceptions of both hold the power to influence you for many cycles to come - so stay awake to your subconscious patterns and old fears. You are not who you were any longer, and it is time to embrace the potential before your eyes as you release the paths that lie behind.
