Gemini // Gemini Rising
A sprinkler system. You are ready to set new intentions about how your personality sprinkles out into the world. You radiate out like a water sprinkler, covering a lot of ground with short distance travels, social networks and conversations. Your intentions for this moon cycle could be set according to two different ideas— consider distraction and consider persistence. Where do you want to position yourself in accordance with these two concepts? Start writing down your thoughts.
Cancer // Cancer Rising
A group of koala bears. When the koala shows up, it’s time for you to take a much needed break. Slow down. Embrace peacefulness in your routine. How can you set fresh intentions about peace, introspection and slowing down? The word enthusiasm comes to mind. In our busy world, when we think about slowing down, it might seem like an admonition that we’re too wired, too disconnected, too frantic. Instead of being hard on yourself, can you get enthusiastic about spaciousness and peace?
Leo // Leo Rising
Dandelion seeds float through the air. Your energy could be thought of as dispersed. Maybe you have a lot going on and are feeling drained, or maybe you are impacting many lives with your brilliance. It’s probably a little of both. Craft a few powerful statements about how you want to connect with the world around you. There are seeds to be planted now.
Virgo // Virgo Rising
The pitter-patter of rain drops. The water soaks into soil over time. A gentle pitter-patter of rain drops adds up to refreshment and sustainment of life. What is adding up now?

Set new intentions for how you want your work to develop.
Libra // Libra Rising
The sound of horses hooves in the distance. Put an ear to the ground and listen. In the distance is the sound of horses’ hooves. The vibration carries and information is conveyed. If you seek out new methods of learning, you will be able to gather information that you need. Something about what you are learning can contribute to your personal philosophy of atonement. Is there anything that you need to apologize for? Anything for which you might take responsibility? Now would be the time to reach your highest height of personal ethics.
Scorpio // Scorpio Rising
Pulling back the curtains. It’s almost time for a big reveal. But first, you must celebrate. Celebrate the past that you’ve let go of. Celebrate the new. Celebrate yourself by honoring the highs and the lows. You are living a life and it’s a journey that deserves acknowledgment. Set intentions for what you want to see when the curtain is pulled back. What is your vision for the moment when the phoenix rises out of the ashes?
Sagittarius // Sagittarius Rising
A steaming pot. Something is cooking. Something is in development. That means that it’s time to stay the course. Let it bake. Hold space for yourself and your important relationships. This might be a challenge. It might feel easier to turn off the stove and walk away. But that could be premature. You set something in motion, just create intentions for how you want to show up. Especially when it comes to relationships.
Capricorn // Capricorn Rising
Clay flower pots. Tending to potted plants is fairly simple. It’s about showing up on a daily or weekly basis and taking small actions. This week is your chance to set intentions for daily or weekly routines. What can small repeated actions add up to? How can you be more diligent? You have to nurture the flowers if you want to see them bloom. If you want to see yourself bloom, it’s going to happen through consistent and dedicated actions.
Aquarius // Aquarius Rising
A parade of floats and carriages. This is an interesting symbol for you because it means that this is a moment for you to show off, even if it feels somewhat indecent. It’s time for you to push yourself out in the spotlight. You might feel like cringing instead. Push through this outdated perception. Where and how can you share your creativity with the world? Set intentions to shine.
Pisces // Pisces Rising
A fallen tree. This fallen log is returning to the earth. The decay feeds insects and provides homes for tiny animals. It’s natural. When you look at your own life, the areas of decay may provoke heartbreak. Loss is loss, and it’s important to grieve. And also to look for the space that’s opening up for new growth. Set intentions at this time to feel all of your feelings fully. Sit quietly with yourself and review the past so that you can feel more connected in the present moment.
Aries // Aries Rising
Skating across ice and snow. As you skate, you’re cutting new grooves. New patterns are being created. Stay in motion and enjoy learning new things. Set intentions regarding the fresh mental ground that you can cover. If ever there was a time to break into new mental territory and open your mind, it’s now. How can you get curious and encourage yourself to find a new path? Look for the support that your friends can offer.
Taurus // Taurus Rising
A smoke screen. Security is a mirage. It’s hard to imagine that, because the human mind is engineered to look for safety. The fact that safety doesn’t actually exist is too difficult for most days. Instead, we usually strive for a facade of security. This is the time to play around with the shape and form of your “security smoke screen.” Is your drive for the illusion of safety holding you back from a more creative life? It is time to shake things up? Set intentions about how you can feel safe and creative at the same time.
