Aries :: Aries Rising
Fields of flowers opening to the sun. Looking up. Acknowledging. Affirming that you are going somewhere. The bloom is happening. This is no time to make yourself smaller. Understand where you came from and how you got here, but simultaneously know that now it’s time to move on. It’s time to heal and grow. You have to let yourself do this in your own way. You have to allow the process. It’s natural. It requires bravery to change. Step forward towards the light.

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
An animal continuously eating delicate blades of grass. Nourish your development. Nourish yourself. Do it for your personal freedom. Do it so that you have the strength to trust in your own opinion. Take regular breaks so that you have the energy and stability to fight for your truth. Just keep taking care of yourself. Give yourself lots of quiet time. Reflect. Be present. Soothe yourself. Then you will know what your truth is, what you really think, and how to express it.

Gemini :: Gemini Rising
Carrying your oxygen to the top of the mountain. Maybe it’s time to take yourself out of your comfort zone and increase your visibility. See more of the world. Garner more attention. Expand your sphere of influence. Interact with your community in a new way. Maybe even as a leader. To do this, you may have to lighten your load emotionally. You have to leave that stuff you’ve outgrown down at base camp. Let go. You can’t carry everything on this journey. It’s just not going to work. Get really honest with yourself about what you are responsible for and then start your ascent.

Cancer :: Cancer Rising
A clown twisting balloons into shapes. This symbol could be endearing for some people and terrifying for others. That seems appropriate since you are working with themes of career and relationship this week. Two topics that also evoke strong reactions in people. So how are you looking at these areas of your life?The time is ripe to let go of outdated relationship patterns. And simultaneously let go of outdated beliefs about how you get to operate in the career spotlight. Get really close to whatever is scaring you and realize that maybe it’s not so spooky after all. Work to evoke playfulness, lightness and glee.

Leo :: Leo Rising
The fire clears the field for new growth. It’s possible that to reach your full potential, you may decide to start from scratch. Take a fresh look at the way you’ve scheduled your life and the way you are taking care of yourself. Some reevaluation is in order. It’s time to let go of some old habits. Add new nutrients to the soil. The symbol is rather dramatic, and maybe that’s how this restructuring needs to be for you. The goal is for you to find greater freedom. The goal is to expand. But in order to expand you need to make sure that your foundation is strong.

Virgo :: Virgo Rising
A child playing with colorful toys. Joy. Play. Fun. These feelings and actions can be your focus right now. But. And. To really live in the full expression of your joy, you may have to let go of some worries. How will you do that? It’s easier said than done. The key is in your creativity. Acknowledge that you are ready now for a new way of thinking to begin. You are ready to let an outdated part of yourself die away. Turn this process into a creative ceremony that celebrates your life force. Make something! Say something! Express yourself. Let the world see your light.

Libra :: Libra Rising
Working on a piece of embroidery. Get quiet and centered in your home life. Make things cozy. Feel the emotional security that comes with being rooted at your base. Use your hands to make something and let that slow, meditative, domestic action soothe your tender spirit. Making room for this type of quiet will allow you a chance to feel feelings that may be a little buried. Feeling your feelings will help you expand consciously in your relationships.

Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
Leaves falling from the sky. In this symbol we are connecting Earth energy with Air energy. That means that you can build something in your life, but you need to align your thoughts to help you reach your full capacity. Get clear about how you want to think about things. This is crucial! There is no time to mess around with limiting thought patterns. Annihilate them. Examine your words and thoughts with a friend, therapist or trusted advisor. Get really honest about the thoughts that are holding you back. Do this work so that you can live a better life, take responsibility for your health and make adjustments to your environment

Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
Eating an ice cream cone. Having fun on the earth plane! You have a body. You get to enjoy things sensually. For optimal health, we need to balance out our “enjoyments.” As Jay-Z told my friend once, “We can’t all be eating cupcakes.” But. That being said, it’s possible that now is a good time for you to revel a little bit. Live it up. Enjoy yourself. Let your enjoyment remind you that you get to have your needs met. You deserve. You are worthy. You are enough.

Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising
A dog running joyfully after a ball. Dog medicine is loyal, playful and supportive. How can you support yourself a little bit more?How can you show more love to yourself? How would that self-acceptance let you step into yourself a little bit more? Have fun with this. Be your own best friend. Give yourself the emotional security that you need, just the way a dog offers unrelenting positive emotional support.

Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
Building blocks. Putting the pieces together. You have got to feel connected, in alignment, in community. You’ve go to feel like you are building an interconnected web. You’re doing this so that you can make big things happen later on. And you’re doing this so that you can work with ideas and intuitions in a new way. Get really curious right now. Learn about every aspect of the subject you are interested in, so that you can put some new pieces in place.

Pisces :: Pisces Rising
A dance for warriors. Know your strength. If you believe in your strength that will help you change the world. If you demean yourself, you will not be able to model a new way of being. You have enough energy to do the things you want to do. You have the support you need to do the things you want to do. You can believe in yourself. Dance this truth. Rev yourself up so that you can follow your dreams and model expansion for others.
