Aries: 10 of Wands
Staying logical and efficient will be the key to your success this month. Unfortunately, those are not your favorite things, so despite the progress you see yourself making, you may still feel more burdened than joyful as you move through your tasks. Try to remember that you really are almost to the point of achieving everything you’ve been working for. If you can push through these last lingering obligations, you will discover a wealth of long-term stability positioned atop of a truly solid foundation, all created from your very own vision and will. Do not doubt that your efforts matter greatly now, even if they sometimes feel pointless and even when you would prefer to simply stop moving forward at all. Completion is closer than you think, and it is all going to be worth it when you finally - and blissfully - get to lay your duties down.
Taurus: 2 of Pentacles
You may feel completely out of balance this month. But you are not. In fact, you are going to discover that you have more power in you than you ever gave yourself credit for. Your ability to juggle the demands of your daily life is going to reveal itself in brilliant glory now, and it may take you by surprise since you have been so sure that you were about to drop every ball you’ve been thrown. The thing is, you are in your element in this physical world, and once you adapt a bit more to the new circumstances you find yourself in, you will be able to settle in to your routine seamlessly despite all of the moving parts. You are beginning to understand the flow of your foundation and the ups and downs of your daily walk in ways you’ve been seeking for ages, and you are connecting the dots that connect you to everything that matters in your world.
Gemini: XVIII The Moon
Ah, Gemini, you may initially pine for the clarity you thrive on, but you need this time to wander in less well-defined spaces. If your conscious mind is constantly on full tilt, you are going to miss out on the soul transformation that is happening for you now beneath the surface - and you don’t want to miss it because it’s exactly what you’ve been searching for. It may seem paradoxical, but the ultra-efficient happiness you’ve been seeking will be found faster if you allow yourself to stop doing and instead stand still and simply gaze around. You have a chance this month to discover that there’s nothing left that you need to fight with yourself about anymore. There’s just you, as you are, whole and faceted and simple and complicated and deserving of sacred, lingering moments to take in every mysterious bit of your surprisingly beautiful life.
Cancer: XVI The Tower
It’s time to let go. It’s time to let go of the idea that you can’t transform and finally allow your transformation in completely. You are still holding on to deeply embedded beliefs about your self, your worth, and your ability, and the Universe is stepping in to clear the way, to abolish every last bit of that remaining nonsense you’ve been struggling to escape for so long. You soul knows you are not who you were. It’s time for you to live as you are. Your priorities have been reset, your image of success has metamorphosized, and your relationship to the world around you is absolutely not the same. Aren’t you ready to walk that walk instead - and at last? You’ve been trapped, and when these walls come down, you are finally going to be free.
Leo: Ace of Cups
This month, fill your cup and drink it and fill it again. Laugh and play and let in the pure joy of life that surrounds you. And then share everything you are with everyone around you. Happiness is found both in overflowing with what you want for yourself and in giving the bounty of what you have away, and this month that truth will bring you real bliss. There is not much you need to do to have it other than to recognize it, so start practicing seeing the blessings and kindnesses that are following you everywhere, accepting the small gifts being given to you every day, and returning the favors every time you can. Allow the beauty of your existence to lead the way, and you will find yourself on a path that unfolds the best of all you are to your very core.
Virgo: Page of Swords
You have access to all the information you need this month to execute all the manifestation you desire. But like anything, when you’re new at wielding power, you need to spend some time learning to use it. Be careful that you don’t fall into arrogance, and be willing to listen to those in the know all around you. Yes, there will be plenty of times where you feel you know better - and sometimes you actually do - but the important skill you are honing now is how to alter situations with cleverness, not with force. There is no doubt that one day you are going to claim your place as the sacred creator of your reality. Walk with clarity and integrity from the very beginning of your journey, and that reality is going to be one which is utterly divine.

Libra: Queen of Pentacles
Plant your ideas everywhere you can this month, because the rich soil you have access to now is going to grow your dreams straight into reality. Your hard work is finally going to pay off, and whether the garden you’ve been tending is mind, body, or spirit, results are about to show up for you in all the best ways - abundantly and measurably. Be sure to spend some time enjoying this gifted ease of your life even as you continue to do what is needed to tend it well. Time with friends and loved ones will feel especially valuable now, and even more so if you fill it with your unique and special touches of beauty and light. Splurge on the best chocolate, the fancy wine, the extra-sparkly accessories, and then sit back to truly luxuriate in them all - with everyone you adore sharing in your bounty right at your side.
Scorpio: XIX The Sun
Get ready for the light to not just return but to shine vibrant life through absolutely everything around you. There is a fundamental shift happening for you this month. The curtains have been pulled back, and you are finally going to see the power of all you have been pouring your energy into - and despite the struggle, that your perseverance has not been in vain. Expect a renewed sense of health, a returned access to clarity, and a reinvigorated outlook on the projects you hold in your hands. And on top of it all, allow the happiness being offered to fill your spirit completely, because it can and it will if you simply let it. You are leaving the night behind at last and walking out into the brightest of days. Enjoy every moment, and trust the growing warmth beneath every footstep you take.
Sagittarius: Queen of Cups
This month, your intuition matters. Your emotions matter. Your ability to connect deeply with the world around you matters. Your ability right now to understand what matters is amplified in ways that will bring a new sense of rulership to your life and expand your sense of beauty exponentially. You are done wasting time on the external imagery of other and ready to embrace the authenticity of your deepest self. You are ready to shine out not just in your external fire but through the golden, shimmering reflections you have collected within your heart. And you are able to reveal to the circles you love the irreplaceable light you see deep within them too. Your life is about to be filled with a Universe of soul and compassion, of unity and peace. Allow the sacred flow which you are being gifted to become the flowing river that gifts all.
Capricorn: The Fool
It is never easy for you to start from the beginning again. You prefer landscapes that you have already surveyed, challenges that you have planned how to master, and ideas that have measurable history behind them. But this month, you are being offered the opportunity for more than just success in your current life. You are being offered a chance to step off into a legendary one. Just this once, put aside your blueprint for assured results and take a leap into uncharted creation. Push past your pragmatism and embrace a path where you don’t know what is around the next bend, where you aren’t sure if things will work but where you accept that you are going to try. You know in your bones that you are ready for a completely new direction. It’s time to allow your feet to actually take you there.
Aquarius: V The Hierophant
You are body-and-soul connected this month, Aquarius, and your ability to move information and energy between both is astonishing right now. If you have a prayer for what you hope to receive, say it. If you want to hear messages from your highest self, just ask. There is very little standing in the way of the open channel you are and the understanding you possess, so put it to good use and align your physical life with your evolved visions as much as possible in the weeks to come. Treat this divine connection with the respect it deserves, and be sure to share your glimpses of sacred wisdom with anyone around you who asks for assistance. Your power to manifest under this vibration is greatly increased simply because you can tune in, tune up, and actually access the roads you are meant to walk upon.
Pisces: 6 of Cups
Nostalgia can pull you into murky waters if you let it. After all, it can’t return you to the past, and it can’t rewind you back to what once was. But it does have a power you can truly use. This month, instead of falling into longing, allow your memories to guide you towards the kind of understanding that serves your most sacred truth. Because as much as your backward-glancing heart can sometimes ache, it also reminds you to your very core what you long for, what you desire, and what you truly love. Take off the rose-colored glasses, elevate yourself out of sentimentality, and search for the wisdom your walk has revealed. Let in fully what you’ve learned you need from partnerships, from professions, from experiences - and also what you’ve learned you don’t need at all. Hoping to re-create the past is a trap, but building upon the knowledge of it is pure soul-filling gold.
