Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising
Clouds floating across the sky. It’s time to let go a little bit. You can’t solve this problem with sheer might right now. You’ll keep coming up against the wall. Be like a cloud floating across the sky. Drift. Let parts of yourself disappear. Learn how to become a little more “boundary-less.” Forcing it isn’t going to work. This is about lightness. Your lesson is to try to align with your true nature by silencing your Inner Critic. Every time you challenge your Inner Critic you challenge your ego. You can then begin to loosen your grip and float.


Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
Ants in a line. Working together in community. There is a practical job that needs to be done. People got to get fed. People got to feel safe. This happens when we work together. This happens when we aren’t isolated. This is why we are social animals in our core. What is blocking you from reaching out for help when you need it? You are connected. You deserve to be here. You are part of the group. You are worthy. Rally your people. Know when, how and why you are supported. Know this like you know your own name.


Pisces :: Pisces Rising
Hieroglyphics. Reading the glyphs to unlock a mystery. What are you discovering right now about yourself? What are you discovering right now about your purpose? You may have to broaden your perspective. Look at everything from a new angle. Know that you are resourceful and you will find the answers in due time. Stay optimistic. Things are getting shaken up right now and it’s hard to understand why. It’s hard to understand your direction. As you work with the strange symbols you’re receiving just remember that this mysterious shift is helping you find alignment with your true self.


Aries :: Aries Rising
The strongman at the fair. Inner strength. How do you think you can use your strength to help you break free? What’s truly holding you back? Here’s a clue. It has something to do with a very old pattern. And you have the inner reserves necessary to change it. This is well within your power. Don’t stop going inward. Don’t stop praying for strength and understanding. You can push to learn more about the root of the pattern, but push with your intuition.


Taurus :: Taurus Rising
A zebra’s stripes. Extremes. Black and white thinking. It’s time to look for the shades of gray. In the nuance, you will find that we’re all just doing the best with what we’ve got. Nothing is as it seems at first glance. A herd of zebra create an optical illusion that distracts their predators. Maybe your friends can support you now. See if they can help you let go of your more extreme ideas. It might be time to upgrade your mindset. It might be time to let go of old stories.


Gemini :: Gemini Rising
Succulents. Hardy plants growing in desert climes. Nothing can stop them. They’ve adapted well. You are busy adapting too, You are working hard to propel yourself higher in your career. You are busy, busy, busy. Your lesson right now happens when a relationship needs to be watered. How can you stretch yourself to understand another person’s perspective? How can you adapt to a situation where you have to meet your own needs and someone else’s? Sometimes succulents have spines. These are protective agents. You can have good boundaries too. That will help you know when and how to compromise.


Cancer :: Cancer Rising
The nucleus. The center. Are you feeling centered and grounded? You are working with some spiral energy right now. The spiral is centered, but it’s also in motion. It means that you’re adjusting and adjusting again. This is similar to the way you would adjust your body while trying to keep your balance in a twirl. Your lesson is to maintain your perspective of the big picture, while you make small adjustments to improve your life. How do you maintain perspective? Keep looking up. Focus on the things that inspire you, while you make small moves to take care of yourself.


Leo :: Leo Rising
The fish chomps its food. You are searching for something. There’s a sense of urgency. Your lesson is to feed your creativity. Your attention can be on dissolving your ego. Don’t do what you love for anybody else. Do it only to communicate a part of your spirit to another being. You’re sharing, not striving. Let go of some idea about how you think your goals should be attained. Feed your spirit by being present in the moment, not by worrying about some future outcome. Likewise, don’t starve your spirit by allowing compulsive habits to distract you from your true emotions. Get really clear about what needs to die away right now.


Virgo :: Virgo Rising
Flag football. It’s a casual game. A game that kids play. There’s a ring of nostalgia to it. There’s a special order to the game. It’s like a dance, but it’s a dance of war. What war dance are you doing in an important relationship? How can you take better care of your inner children while you do the dance of relationship? Which baby part of you is distrustful? Which baby part is lonely? Which baby part is overcome with joy? Get them all together and watch them play the game. Anticipate their next moves. Be mindful that the younger parts of you sometimes cry out for your attention. Give them lots of love. Play with them.


Libra :: Libra Rising
A bowl of lemons. It’s time to cleanse. You need to clear your physical systems so that you can get more grounded. Your lesson is to shift the thought pattern debris so that you are able to be in the present moment. You’ll get grounded by letting go of certain beliefs about what you’re responsible for. When was the last time you said “No”? It’s time for a clear, direct, straight-forward, “No.” Taking back your “No” is one of the ways that you will cleanse. Cleansing citrus stings a little bit. It cuts through the grease. It cuts through the social lubricant. Stop being polite and take care of yourself.


Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
Sewing by hand. You are creating. Your action will result in something that you will value for a long time. Do you believe that you are worthy? Let your urge for creativity remind you that every being creates. That is the nature of life and the universe. You are a part of the flow of giving and receiving. Watch yourself give and create. This process can teach you how to open up to receive. You are worthy of receiving support, having nice things, and being here on this plane. You are worthy because you are alive. Stitch yourself a prayer. Let each stitch be a reminder that you are inherently valuable.


Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
A red checked table cloth. Sit down to a nourishing meal. The meal consists of all the nutrients you need- physiological, safety, love, belonging, esteem and self-actualization. Self actualization is final delight of this meal. As you learn to fulfill your needs, you grow more into yourself. You find the path to your true self. Your lesson right now has to do with feeling emotional security. Keep giving yourself the nutrients you need. Then make yourself larger than life. Shine as bright as you can.
