Aries // Aries Rising
Fire arrow. It’s time to cut through. You might have to push yourself out of the emotional waters and dry out. Get yourself back on land. It’s been a soggy and emotional run and now you are here to light your own fire. So that you can get things done. Don’t worry about what you’ll do or how you’ll do it. Confidence is learned through action. So go. Illuminate your path as you fly.
Taurus // Taurus Rising
A parade. You’re learning to enjoy the fruits of imagination. A parade offers imagination and surprises. You have to wait for each new act to arrive in front of you. You can't skip ahead. You must be patient. There are more imaginative unveilings. More truths to be unveiled. Sit and wait. You don’t need to move. Let the awareness come to you.
Gemini // Gemini Rising
Wreath of wallflowers. It’s easy to feel uncertain and hang back like a wallflower. But that won’t do. You are meant to learn from others and maybe even be a thought leader. It’s easier to weave your wallflower into a wreath if you come from a place of curiosity instead of judgement. There’s always something new to learn — let that idea lead you into exciting new social connections.
Cancer // Cancer Rising
Tallest sunflower. You are already enough. Even if you don’t always feel it. You’re doing enough. You are sturdy and your foundation is strong. Deny self-doubt and remind yourself of the truth — you are excelling and achieving. At this time you can gain momentum at work. Believe in yourself and your ability to rise up above the rest of the garden.
Leo // Leo Rising
Pizza Pie. You’re having a pizza party and this can be an uplifting time. Let yourself feel jubilant. The pie shape is a wheel and circumstances are always turning. Events happen. Things change. It’s who you are on the inside that counts. Identify some goals so that you feel centered and then enjoy the party. Lean forward into whatever helps you have fun, learn and expand.
Virgo // Virgo Rising
A sprouting seed. When you release the past, it’s easier to open up to the future. You are not a carbon copy of yesterday. You are so much more. You have the power to make your life what you want it it be. See today as a new beginning. See yourself as a seed, sprouting for the first time. If you’ve never sprouted before, there’s nothing there to judge. What kind of plant will you become?
Libra // Libra Rising
The rose has thorns. Make sure you’re ignoring what you need to ignore. Are you putting your attention on something superfluous? You only have so much time and attention. Make it count. There are relationships that really matter and there are ones that don’t. Instead of trying to make everyone happy, use your energy carefully. You’ll end up feeling aligned and carefree.
Scorpio // Scorpio Rising
Self-massage. You can give yourself a massage, you just need to set aside the time. Focus on healing and attending to your physical body. Creating self-care practices will make you a role model for others. Take good care of yourself and you’ll be better able to be of service. You may think you’ve heard this message before, but this week it’s especially important.
Sagittarius // Sagittarius Rising
Racecar. A racecar drives in a circle. It’s not complicated, but the other cars on the track make the sport difficult. You need to follow your own path, but there are many disruptions. Does this stoke your fires of creativity or make you want to shut down? Remember your goal. Put blinders on and drive right toward it. That will help you feel creative, free and directed.
Capricorn // Capricorn Rising
Generations. You are feeling many emotions and some of these emotions are ancient. Who in your family originated this feeling? If you can’t tap into the feelings directly, you’ll feel antsy. Just let yourself imagine the source of the emotions. The emotional release can power up your jet engines and help you feel inspired to achieve
Aquarius // Aquarius Rising
A ladder. The direction you need to go is up. Up for more mental perspective. If you find yourself grinding on some thoughts or ideas that are stressing you out, climb. Get on the ladder and get your head out of the mundane and into something more inspiring. There is always something to learn that can help you reframe. Reach for a new way of thinking.
Pisces // Pisces Rising
Imaginary palace. You can live in a palace at any time. It exists in your imagination. There are always many stories that you can tell yourself. Some stories are worries and some are dreams. Which ones are safer? Your answer might tell you a lot about the state of mind that you feel most comfortable inhabiting. Remember that security is a human need. And it is always imagined.
