Virgo :: Virgo Rising
Bottles moving along a conveyer belt. Repetition. Through continuous practice, you have the ability to refine and improve your technique. Finding ways to improve is fun for you. If you can let yourself be very present in the moment, you will find that you are totally in sync with whatever it is you need to do right now. The repetition of your efforts becomes almost like a finely tuned dance. You can become so present that it may feel as if time stops. Stay focused, grounded, and clearly dedicated to the tasks ahead.

Libra :: Libra Rising
Elephants running in a herd. An unseen force is operating deep within you. Become very observant. Let yourself have the time and space you need to feel the depths of emotion pull at your heart. Allowing the unnoticed emotion to come up will temper it, so that you are supported by a rush of energy instead of being trampled in a stampede of emotions.

Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
Clouds that look like flowers. You are searching for new ideas. Look for inspiration everywhere. Let one idea morph into another, just as the wind pulls a cloud into an entirely different shape. Don’t become too attached to any one idea right now. Let them flow. Watch as they change and develop right before your eyes. Feel the power of your mind as you allow the fresh stream of inspiration to drift in.

Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
Dipping water out of a well. Understand what your resources are so that you can activate them in your career. Staying aware of your resources (whether those are social, intellectual, technological, financial, emotional, or spiritual) can help you feel optimistic as you make decisions. Take time to research and organize so that you have a solid foundation as you move forward in this moment of career expansion.

Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising
A pig roots around, looking for truffles. It’s time to do some searching and exploring. Truffles are an expensive delicacy. What high-value reward are you searching for? Before you begin to explore, decide on your desired outcome. What is your vision? Think about what you want to achieve and how you want to feel in the process. Once you have that goal decided upon, enjoy the process of learning and expanding as you look for different ways to achieve this outcome. Be playful.

Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
Reaching for another person. You have an opportunity to create deep intimacy. Intimacy can feel vulnerable because we must really learn how to trust. But once established, intimacy can be an incredible relief. When you are truly intimate, you don’t have to worry about being judged. It’s a huge energy saver. It may be time to consider how you create intimacy and if you’re ready for more.

Pisces :: Pisces Rising
The horizon line. A boundary. Depending on the weather, sometimes a horizon line is clearly defined, sometimes it’s hard to see. This is a moment for you to define your priorities and boundaries when it comes to relationships. Get clear. Depending on your emotional weather, this is not always the easiest thing to do. But healthy boundaries in relationships is what allows them to flourish without the hindrance of anxiety or resentment. Begin with the idea that it’s not up to you to carry emotional responsibility for anyone. Go from there.

Aries :: Aries Rising
A pumpkin grows in the field. Because of its large size and many seeds, the pumpkin is a symbol of plenty. Abundance. But to help along the development of this massive vegetable, the farmer must take gentle care— monitoring the soil quality, pests, and weather. Likewise, your abundance currently comes from your ability to tend to the details. Pay attention to your sleep, nutrition, exercise, organization, time management, etc. Get all of the mundane systems of your life in order so that you can enjoy a delightful harvest later on.

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
An alien language. You must translate something that’s far outside your field of experience. It’s time to get creative. Reach as far as you can. Expand your brain. The universal language that you can use as your Rosetta stone is Love. Begin by learning about love and you will be able to effectively translate anything that comes your way.

Gemini :: Gemini Rising
Lying on a raft, floating down a river. Surrendering to the flow of emotions. Surrendering to dreams and imagination. Who is your inner child who needs nurturance now? How old is that little one? Take them on an adventure in the river. Play games and tell stories. Listen. This is how you move the raft forward along the river of emotions.

Cancer :: Cancer Rising
Playing a game of jacks. An ancient game. Versions of it are played all around the world. Do you remember what it’s like to play just for the sheer joy of playing? In Ancient Greece, children’s games like this one used to be invented as offerings to the Gods. Elevate the act of play to a spiritual level. Make everything into a game. This practice will help you make new mental connections and lighten your mindset.

Leo :: Leo Rising
The very top of the mountain. Set your sights on your earthly goals. Look for the path that will lead you up to the top of the mountain. There is hard work ahead. But the work you do will help you feel more stable. Look for ways to improve your finances and resources. It’s time to climb.
