Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
A flurry of snowflakes blocking your sight. Fresh, new, bright snow obliterates your view. You can’t see. Time stops. There is a spaciousness. A vulnerability. Allow the feeling of helplessness that comes with not knowing. Allow yourself to pause. Then press on. Move forward even though you can’t see. Use your intuition to guide you. If your vision is blocked, tune into your inner sight. What would you like to see? How would you like to feel? Turn these wishes into statements of intention. Using powerful intentions, craft your year ahead, even if you aren’t clear on things now. In the space of not knowing, you can still be the powerful creator that you are.
Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
You dream of an arrow being launched. Vivid dreams. You’re coming into your time of action, but not quite yet. As of now, you are still in a state of waiting. Your current work is in the sphere of intangibles— dreams, subconscious, intuition, spirituality. You’re creating your life out of the primordial mud of your subconscious. Go deep into your memories. Every time you feel challenged this week, root down into yourself and scan your history for clues about what is really going on. This is not surface level stuff. Nothing is as it seems. Tip-toe quietly into the corners of your psyche. Launch arrows of inquiry into your depths and see what truth is ready to be flushed out of the undergrowth.

Lichen on rocky cliffs. Have you fully explored your surroundings? Have you looked into every nook and cranny, every craggy cliff of your environment? This is not a time for standing still. This is a time to climb. Explore. Investigate. You need some new philosophies and you need them now. But you have to go looking for them! This is not the time for complacency.

Aries :: Aries Rising
A geyser. They are all fine. They don’t need you to do it for them. Let it go. Just let it wash away. This moment is your chance to release the emotions that you have been carrying for other people. Where have you been taking all of the emotional responsibility? Can you release it? Can you trust that other people can take care of themselves? There may be logical reasons why they can’t do it, but it’s probably not your job to help them. It’s probably not your work. If you really aren’t sure, ask yourself, “Is this my work?” If it is, you’ll know immediately. And if not, let it go.
Taurus :: Taurus Rising
A tiny plant sprouting above the soil. So new. So delicate. So fragile. Your fragility is your greatest power at the moment. It’s the power of vulnerability. Open your heart and lean in. Press into the void. The void is “trust.” Trust is a void because it because it’s an unknown. It’s not a sure thing. There is nothing sure about relationship. There is nothing predetermined. There is no stasis. All at once, we want relationship to be sure and stable and static. The only way to have all of these things in relationship is to have trust. But to get to trust, you have to get really, really vulnerable. Now is your time to open yourself up. Allow yourself to be a fragile sprout.
Gemini :: Gemini Rising

Your psychology, physiology, productivity and environment are all coming under the microscope for you now. Take some time this week to redefine how you want to orient yourself. What can you do take better care of your body? What can you do to harness your attitude and your mindset? Are you determining your schedule or is it determining you? How is your environment affecting you? This week offers you a chance to solve some of these questions and set new habits in motion.
Cancer :: Cancer Rising
Eating lasagne. Nourishment. Food symbols usually allude to nurturance. There’s something more to this symbol— at the same time elaborate and homespun. Nourish your basic right to joy. Joy is regular. It’s everyday. It should be expected and commonplace. But we don’t always allow much space for it. We can put it off, under the guise that it’s too decadent. Sometimes we even tell ourselves that we can’t celebrate because we aren’t done yet. We haven’t made it all the way to “success.” This is your chance to infuse your life with joy and celebration. Fill your life with fun. Nourish yourself with the gift of happiness. There is always more room for the basic emotion of joy.
