A cat in the sun. It’s time to deeply relax. Can you do that while also taking up some space in the spotlight? Cats are mini kings and queens. They know how to garner attention, while at the same time embodying meditative stillness. Receive all of the gifts that are coming your way. Relax and purr while you effortlessly shine your magnetic appeal out into the world.

Paper plane. Receive an important message written on a paper plane. There is insight headed your way. Your curiosity is being quenched. When you want something you often try to take action immediately. Right now you simply need to wait and watch. Keep an eye on the horizon and wait for a message to drift your way. It won’t be obvious, so be open to any form it may take.

Electronic ticker tape. What if LED lights were to flash messages at you all day, everyday? And the messages were your most important values and visions for the future? This would make it easy to infuse every mundane task and action with inspiration and purpose. Choose a few important values and find a way to put them “on repeat” so that you can feel deep inner alignment.
Gemini // Gemini Rising
Trampoline. You’re jumping higher and higher. You’re getting better and better. One of the hardest things to remember about progress is that there is an ebb and a flow. We can’t just keep moving forward all the time. We will always have setbacks and plateaus. Don’t be discouraged by this variety. Chart your overall progress and set up a sturdy system so that you can continue to leap higher.

Watching goldfish. You could stare into a beautifully designed aquarium and easily be transported to another realm. That’s one reason why aquariums exist— to help you move gracefully into other dimensions. How do you need to break out and visit another realm? Is it through travel? Is it through symbolism? Is it through reading? You need encouragement. Find it by expanding your own mind.
Leo // Leo Rising
Dragonfly and bass. The dragonfly skims the surface of the pond, but could it be lunch for a fish living deep below? As much as you might like to, you can’t stay on the surface right now. You need to go deep. You need to push yourself to confront your emotional depths. Ask yourself what you need to see that you are not seeing. When you are friends with all your feelings, your surface life gets easier.
Virgo // Virgo Rising
Unexpected music. A few beautiful notes sound through the air. If you are staying present and paying attention, you can be charmed by lovely music or a beautiful vision. Beauty can add joy to your life, but not if you are so busy working that you fail to notice it. Balance, beauty or collaboration could offer you serenity. Let a balanced conversation or inspiring art help you open up and be present.
Libra // Libra Rising
Homework. Your work can yield results— if you can finally figure out how to balance it. This is not about working harder or giving up your joy. This is about getting things organized. Can you focus on efficiency without getting overwhelmed? Can you get help designing the small steps that will take you all the way? What is the most practical way to make this happen?
Scorpio // Scorpio Rising
Telescope. Set your sights on another planet and imagine yourself living there. Play “pretend” just like when you were a kid. Then take the next step and redesign your life on this planet. As we get older we forget the fun of imagining. It’s a powerful practice that can actually create a different reality. Get excited about your imagined potential and build the life of your dreams.
Sagittarius // Sagittarius Rising
All the ways you breathe. Experiment with your breathing. Try a shallow breath, a heavy breath. a cleansing breath. Pretend you are an actor displaying an emotional breath. Now take all of this range and use it to connect with different parts of yourself. Does you deep breath help you connect with your empowered self? Your breath can remind you of what needs to be healed. Let it show you how.
Capricorn // Capricorn Rising
Soda bubbles. Bubbles keep rising. When they achieve momentum they are incredibly refreshing. Be ready for the inspiration that’s headed your way. Logic can overwhelm you right now, so loosen up your grip. Look for moments of exciting inspiration and let the carbonation free your mind of old limitations. It’s a moment for bursts of insight.
Aquarius // Aquarius Rising
Flamingo. You don’t need to struggle to feel secure. A flamingo is just as steady on one leg as on two. You can examine your relationship with security vs. freedom. What if you can have both and have them right now? Look for examples in nature. Your steadiness can be fluid and technicolor. You can be wild and stable at the same time. You deserve to have all of your needs met.
