:aries: Aries

Whoa there, Aries- things have been moving quickly for you lately, but it’s time to slow your pace and take note of where you are. The sun is on his way out of fiery Leo and into Virgo this week- as fire season wanes and meets the grounded and stable nature of the Earth-aligned Maiden, your own pace needs to adjust. This week isn’t about taking things at break-neck speed, rushing from one engagement and errand into the next- doing so will surely cause a crash (and more delays in the long run!). Instead, take a moment to pause and reassess in between your activities- be mindful of where you are, who you are with, and how you feel about the situation. Allow yourself to be present. Distant and international travel are not recommended this week.

Tarot Card : The Chariot, Reversed


:taurus: Taurus

As the Bull of the Zodiac, you have a solid work ethic and strong feelings about justice. You know that the work you do deserves to be recognized, but this week, you can sense that you aren’t getting the proper compensation for what you giving- this may be in terms of your salary and benefits, but most especially when it comes to praise and acknowledgment from others. You’re getting two supportive nudges from Jupiter, the planet of prosperity and fortune, and Uranus, the planet of progress and breakthrough- both of whom are encouraging you to step forward. Others are likely buried in their own duties- so you’ll need to speak up for yourself and help shine the light of awareness on what you have been working on. You’ve done good work, Taurus- you deserve the praise you are seeking.

Tarot Card : Six of Wands, Reversed


:gemini: Gemini

Do you feel the pull on your emotions, Gemini? This week, the growing moon is far away- in your opposing sign, Sagittarius, she will become a First Quarter Moon. As she strengthens on the opposite side of the Zodiac, she is pulling at you as she does the tide, dredging up emotions and memories that you thought you had buried. The coming nights may bring back old dreams and nostalgia for what you once had. It’s okay to enjoy the memories, but don’t let yourself drown in them. Mercury is going topsy-turvy into retrograde this week- expect to feel the shift in your ruling planet, throwing communications out of whack. Now is not the time to reach out to estranged family members or try to get into contact with lost friends. Avoid any temptation to “check on” exes- be they ex-partners, ex-co-workers, or ex-friends.

Tarot Card : Six of Cups, Reversed


:cancer: Cancer

Come on out of your shell, Cancer- things are looking hopeful for you this week! The sun is setting on fiery Leo season and rising in the realm of Virgo, bringing a sense of stability and groundedness. You’ve been dealing with a lot over the past few weeks, so look forward to a period of transition- it’s time to leave behind what is in the past and set sail forward. Though it may be tempting to keep picking at situations and relationships that you are moving on from, it is in your best interests to look ahead and not look back. Have faith in yourself and your decisions, and know that the First Quarter Moon is bringing balance and harmony to you in the middle of this week. Travel is looking to be a good option for you- especially travel done in the name of healing. Consider forest bathing, visiting your therapist, going to the spa, or taking a day for yourself. If you are feeling generous, consider extending a helping hand to a Pisces this week- your calming and nurturing nature could help them out of a tough time.

Tarot Card : Six of Swords


:leo: Leo

The passage of time is powerful, and all good things must come to an end- this week, the sun moves onwards along his yearly journey into neighboring Virgo. The departure of your ruling planet may leave you feeling heavy and more prone to cloudy and difficult emotions. Venus, still in retrograde at your side, is also adding a layer of complications to your relationships- contributing to issues with libido and the level of satisfaction you feel when spending time with those you are close to. But it’s not the end of the world, Leo- do you have a journal or log? This week, find release and regain a sense of control by expressing yourself and what you are feeling. By letting out your emotions (in the safety of your journal, or to someone you trust), you can reset the cup that has spilled and put yourself in a good position for the days ahead.

Tarot Card : Ace of Cups, Reversed


:virgo: Virgo

Get ready, Virgo- this is a happening week for you! On Wednesday, be prepared for the glorious arrival of the Sun, who arrives to herald the start of Virgo season- a month of stability, grounded energy, and a push towards wellbeing. But just as the sun arrives, Mercury, who has been upright in your sign for nearly a month, flips into retrograde- turning communications topsy-turvy. The fiery energy of the sun paired with Mercury’s airy nature going haywire is enough to make anyone want to hide under a rock- but there’s no way to avoid these changes, instead- try to embrace them! As you juggle the boost of energy from the sun with the chaoticness of Mercury retrograde, know that a big weight will come off your shoulders as the week ends- as Mars, planet of war and action, will march out of your sign into neighboring Libra. Although all of the celestial influences this week may leave you feeling burned out, know that the weekend will bring a breath of fresh air and a fresh start for next week.

Tarot Card : Death, Reversed


:libra: Libra

This week begins with a departure but ends with an arrival for you, Libra. On Monday, the waxing crescent moon that you have been nurturing over the weekend will depart into neighboring Scorpio. In her wake, things that once seemed certain will no longer seem set in stone- facts aren’t adding up and your emotions are giving you a run for your money, so instead turn to your own inner light: your intuition will guide you best through this week. On Thursday, the First Quarter Moon will help you regain your footing and step towards balance, and on Sunday, look to Mars- the powerful planet of action and drive is marching right into your sign. His fiery energy might combine in exciting ways with your own airy nature- if you open yourself to the possibilities, Mars can help to invigorate and push you forward- heating the air and helping you soar to new heights. If you need a helping hand this week, a Sagittarius may have exactly what you are looking for.

Tarot Card : The Moon


:scorpius: Scorpio

You’ve done well, Scorpio, and the things you worked through last week are bearing fruit- the coming days show a 180-degree turn in a positive direction for you. Any strife or misunderstandings with your partner, friends, or close family members are or are soon going to be resolved. Focused and aware, you will nurture the waxing crescent moon in your capable claws for the first half of the week- in return for your care, she will help your current situation to thrive. In the choices you will face this week, the middle path is looking to be the most beneficial for you. Thursday’s First Quarter Moon in neighboring Sagittarius will help to bring you balance and assist with stabilizing your success. If you receive an invitation to a wedding, family reunion, get-together with friends, or new business opportunity- you ought to consider it closely.

Tarot Card : The Lovers


:sagittarius: Sagittarius

Look up, Sagittarius- the moon is lighting your way and the week is looking bright! On Thursday, the moon will achieve a beautiful half-illumination as a First Quarter Moon in your sign. She will stay with you until Saturday, growing brighter each night and bringing you a time of stability, balance, and movement towards growth. Pay close attention to your dreams this week, as your subconscious mind is particularly strong and may try to reach out with messages. If you aren’t already doing so, consider keeping a dream log or diary next to your bed. If there is someone you want to connect with, say their name before you go to sleep. Allow the moon to shine her light and help illuminate your path forward. You are in good hands this week, Archer.

Tarot Card : The Moon, Reversed


:capricorn: Capricorn

Proud and diligent, you hold yourself to a high standard, Sea Goat- while that’s not a bad thing, sometimes you can be so focused on your own road forward that it becomes hard to read the actions of others who cross your path. This week, what may first appear like others challenging or taking action against you deserves a closer look- in truth, they may just be trying to achieve their own goals, with no intention to do you harm. The waxing gibbous moon is coming to stay with you all weekend- ripe with growth and potential, she is sharing illumination so you can better sense the emotions of others, if you so choose. Pluto in retrograde continues to hang around in your sign, so be wary of feelings of lethargy- if you have been procrastinating getting something done, this weekend will be a good opportunity to wrap it up.

Tarot Card : Five of Swords


:aquarius: Aquarius

Your journey is reaching its next step, Aquarius, so continue to move in the direction you have been going in up to this point. This week is looking to be a smooth ride- it is a time to open up and pay close attention to your emotions and the messages they carry. Listen to your inner voice as you go about the day- how do you feel when you do certain things or spend time with certain people? There are clues here that are meant to be unraveled- using your sharp mind and spiritual knowledge, find the keys that unlock the truth about yourself and who you are meant to be. There is the chance for a new relationship to blossom in the coming days. Travel is looking to go well- but avoid traveling in rush hour and plan extra time. It’s okay to take the scenic route.

Tarot Card : Knight of Cups


:pisces: Pisces

Release the tension you are holding, Pisces- take a deep breath and let your shoulders drop. It’s been a lot to deal with lately, and it seems like things just keep piling up- the influence of retrograde Saturn is making authority feel oppressive this week, stifling your freedom and putting your rights into jeopardy. Your ruling planet Neptune, also in retrograde, isn’t helping- the temptation to dig deep into your own mind and hide from the world sure is strong this week. Know that it’s okay to take a step back and recoup, but you can’t hide away forever- whether you are aware of them or not, there are others out there who are depending on you. And you don’t have to do things alone- there is help out there for you if you need it, but it can’t reach you if you are hidden away. Take a deep breath, find your center, and take the step forward- you can overcome this.

Thank you Bry :people_hugging: :slightly_smiling_face: :goat: Scorpio looks good, Goat is OK Virgo a bit of a challenge, but overall :arrow_up: :gift_heart:

:goat: BAAA


Huh… :thinking: interesting that this week’s horoscope is the reverse of last week’s! I guess we really turned it around! :clap:


Awww, time to crawl out of the cocoon it seems! :smile_cat:
Though travel in the name of healing, spa relaxation and forest bathing don’t sound bad at all :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
I do know a couple of sweet Pisces I’d love to share my light with… :blush: :revolving_hearts:


Thank you so much, @BryWisteria :pray: :pink_heart:

The reading sounds much brighter this week, for Libra :libra: :astrology_sun: and Scorpio :scorpius: :astrology_moon: It’s a big relief! :partying_face: Last week was difficult for me, and I so need a break!

The cards agree with what I see coming up energetically next week with another portal opening up as the Sun :astrology_sun: aligns with Regulus, the star of royalty.

My husband is a Sagittarius :sagittarius: So, I love this:

With gratitude :pray: always


@Shadeweaver You’re very welcome! :heart: May you be able to easily overcome any challenges and may it be a baaaautiful week for you :wink: :goat::sparkles:

@MeganB I know,- and it’s not the first time it happened either! I think it was Libra a few weeks back who had a reversed card one week and then the following week it appeared again but upright. I can only assume it to mean that situations have been dealt with and the path is clear to move forward in a positive way- and hey, at this point I’ll take any good signs I can get! :laughing: :+1:

@CelestiaMoon A cocoon is nice and comfy, but there are some things worth emerging for! :wink: Whatever lovely things or adventures you find yourself doing this week, I hope you have a great one :blush: :heart:

@Marsha I’m glad things are looking up for you- you deserve all the positivity and joy and more, Marsha! :hugs: :two_hearts: May it be a wonderful week for you and your Sagittarius- lots of love to you too! :heartpulse:


I’ll cheers to that! :clinking_glasses: :raised_hands:


:smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :clinking_glasses: :sparkles:


Ready for Virgo Season and Mercury Retrograde! Let’s go! :wink:


Loving your enthusiasm- you’ve got this, @Janae_Rochele! :partying_face: :heart:

May the rest of your bday week be a happy and blessed one :hugs: :two_hearts:
