Cancer :: Cancer Rising
Showing a horse in a dressage competition. It’s time to compete. Show off your skills. Shine. You are supported — it’s not just you out there on your own. Sit tall and sit high on your prancing horse. Look for a way to feel confident enough to put yourself out there. Is it scary to be seen and lead the way? If it is, that’s okay. But if you don’t do it now, then when? And what do you really have to lose anyway?

Leo :: Leo Rising
Mowing the lawn. Do something routine that lets you get away from it all and have some time to daydream. You need to go inward. Allow yourself to recede. You can mask it by doing everyday chores, as the symbol suggests. But do break free from the mundane world and let your imagination take you on a journey. Too much time spent chained to the grind or the social media feed will suck the joy out of you. Replenish.

Virgo :: Virgo Rising
Writing in hieroglyphics. Ancient languages. Future languages. Early written languages were a huge breakthrough in communication, which had previously only been spoken. It’s possible that reading and writing even changed the way we humans use our brains, by helping us think more abstractly. You may be ready for a mindset shift right now. How can you advance into completely new thought territory? Get outside of your norm and communicate with a new group in a new way. Surprise yourself with innovative thoughts and ideas. Be inventive.

Libra :: Libra Rising
Jumping on a pogo stick. Higher and higher. You keep reaching for more, And it looks like you can have fun while you’re doing it! Don’t stop, you’re just getting started. If you keep jumping like this, you may find yourself on a new platform. And you may find that you have a new audience. Let it be a game and let it bring you lightness.

Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
Fireworks—wheels of light spinning off into the air. Illuminating the sky? You? Yes. Do it. Get out there and light it up. Share your most fiery message — your spirit, your ideas, your philosophy. It’s not time to hold back. It’s time to light it up. Just take action. You know where you belong right now. Where everyone can see you.

Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
Waves on the surface of the ocean and stronger currents below. What are the waves on your surface? Meaning, what are those minor emotional irritations that are easy to ignore or resist? If you ignore the surface waves, they will show up as bigger problems—procrastination, resistance or confusion. If instead, you follow the emotions down to discover the deeper emotional patterns below, you might experience a breakthrough. Learn more about your patterns so that you can heal. Experience calm, peaceful waters.

Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising
A ship with full sails. Can you find a way to communicate with love? Even when under pressure? Even when irritated or fatigued? Sail forward quickly. In astrology, the Air element represents communication (among other things). Let your communication propel you forward. Fill your sails with the desire to connect. Let nothing get in the way of creating harmonious partnership.

Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
You are a cannonball. Ready to fly. Position yourself well as you move into battle. What’s the battle? Think of it as your upcoming challenges.

A little planning and positioning can go a long way.

Pisces :: Pisces Rising
Instead of a bouquet of flowers, you hold a bouquet of dancing butterflies. Are you ready to become more dynamic? More joyful? Even more than you imagined possible?

Maybe they will even give you a little recognition, and wouldn’t that be refreshing?

A child’s drawing. So innocent. So perfect in it’s fresh and unencumbered expression. That part of you is still there, deep inside. That pure, unconcerned and vital part of you.

Let her teach you.

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
Skiing down slopes. Your curiosity helps you build momentum. This is one big learning adventure, are you ready to hit the slopes? As you slalom in your imagination, you groove lines in the snow. Those lines are the synapses in your brain, the connections of the dots. What do you need to learn about? What ideas do you need to connect? What neural pathways need to be formed? Do it with speed, adventure and finesse.

Gemini :: Gemini Rising
A hedgehog eating grass roots in a meadow. The hedgehog knows how to protect itself while keeping cool, calm and in control. This tiny spiny mammal has a built-in security system. When danger nears, it simply rolls into a ball and is protected by it’s spiky spines. How efficient. You are capable of taking care of yourself too, as long as you just keep things simple.
