The Chariot: My dearest crabs, this month will be all about releasing expectations, patterns, baggage, and more! You are finally realizing how much you’ve allowed yourself to be weighed down by unnecessary pain and drama, and for what? Sure, some patterns feel familiar. But are they comfortable? It’s not so much about getting out of a comfort zone for you in August as it is about letting go of the familiarity.
Remember, insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. If you’re tired of the chaos, disappointment, and struggle then change up your daily habits and routines. What (or who) is taking up most of your time? Get brutally honest with yourself in August. It doesn’t have to stay this way!
The Devil: My dear Cancers, July is a time for you to finally face the music and let the past be in the past once and for all. Is there something (or someone) you’re holding onto and keeping present with old stories? You’ll do better if you can let go of that part of your life and finally snap into presentness. Take note of who and what is present in your life, and start to bring your consciousness here, now. There is no other time than the present moment, and your spirit guides are asking for you to show up so you can start to move forward with lightheartedness.
You are going to be presented with opportunities to step outside of your comfort zone with new friends and community. Now is the time for you to become an active participant in your own life. If you’ve been feeling held back and saying, “That’s just the way I am” or “that’s just how things are,” release these statements for July and allow yourself to think outside the box. Today is the first day of a new chapter. How do you want this all to play out? You are in control, but you also must be accountable.
Justice: My crabs, this month will bring all that is good and right back into balance for you, but only after karma has been paid. If you’ve been keeping yourself on the right path, there is nothing to worry about with karma. You will get what you deserve either way, and for some that will be a marvelous gift! For others, it will be a course correction through changes to your work, home, or relationship sector. You are on the right path, regardless of how comfortable or uncomfortable things get; do not forget this.
If you’ve been feeling restless, you would do best this month to spend more time outdoors. Camping, hiking, beach days, woodland getaways—any and all of these would do well for your wavering spirit. Get yourself into a positive headspace by unplugging in June. If you’ve been worried about how a project will turn out, know that things are moving in your favor but it may take some more time to actualize. Be patient and all will be well.
Nine of Wands: Checking in on you, my sweet Cancers. How is your heart feeling? It seems like you’re going through a bit of the cocoon phase in your progression into becoming a butterfly. There is nothing worse than forgetting that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and I am here to remind you to keep looking ahead. If you’ve been struggling to connect with others in a deep and healthy way, May will give you some breathing space to make this happen. It seems like you’re finally ready to start trusting your gut and going in the direction of your intuition. The less you doubt yourself, the less the Universe will test you. Once you’re in a good groove of going with your inner voice, you will be blessed beyond your wildest dreams.
You are talented beyond measure, and it’s time that you take center stage in this life. If you weren’t standing in your own way, would anyone really be able to get you off track? I don’t think so. Try living your life this month as if you were unstoppable. Little secret? You are.
The Hanged Man: My crabs, the month of April will be all about changing your perspective in order to achieve your goals. You are giving 110% when no one else is expecting more than 70%, and it’s leading you down the sure-fire path to burnout. Take this as a warning to slow down and find balance now before you’re forced to find balance later on.
You may have felt lately that you’re losing the ability to concentrate in your daily life. Take more time away from your phone, TV, or computer throughout the day in order to tap back into your inner voice so you can understand why you’ve felt so called to distract and disconnect from yourself. There are new avenues to express your creativity that have been calling out to you—I see art and music coming into your life in new ways. Stay open to the signs and messages all around you; less distractions are key so you can be ready to jump into this new project when the time and opportunities arrive!
Eight of Wands: This month will be all about coming out of your shell—pun intended—in both words and actions. You will have opportunities to travel both inward and outward in March that will leave you feeling refreshed and deeply connected to yourself and your surroundings. If you let go of the fears of looking foolish, you could end up having some of the most vulnerable conversations of your life in the next few weeks. Take time to understand the point of view of those you’re sharing these heart-to-heart conversations with, and try to remember that you can’t always be the hero in everyone’s story. Show up with strength and fortitude without getting defensive when you have hard conversations, and you’ll have an opportunity to experience what being truly seen feels like.
You’re also not done meeting all of the people who will love you in this lifetime. Whether this pertains to romantic or platonic love, there are strangers you meet this month who could end up becoming some of your closest confidants. Use your intuition to make changes in your routine, and some of these new weekly activities will lead you closer to your soul tribe. Listen to your gut, open your heart, and let March be one of your most special months yet.
Knight of Pentacles: This month will be all about patience and peace. I see many of you relishing the rewards of past projects. If you submitted something a few months ago, I see a decent paycheck coming your way before February closes. Just know that patience is considered a virtue for a reason, and you are about to see why first-hand. If you’ve been investing your time, money, or energy into one place (or person), know that this effort is not going unnoticed. Your spirit guides are working hard behind the scenes to bring you the life that you desire, but you have to leave the how and when of the story up to them. It is not your job to control such a heavy responsibility, and this month will truly test your trust in the process.
Let yourself let go, and in the meantime bring yourself back to the basics: Eat well, sleep well, hydrate, and surround yourself with people who love you. You are in no rush, but neither is the universe. Let it all unfold naturally, and start to enjoy the ride by surrendering. I see some of you receiving flowers or hearing birds in the morning as a sign that you are on the right path. Stay open to little gifts of acknowledgment along the way!
Five of Swords: Life is not meant to be all butterflies and rainbows, my dear Cancer. This month is asking you to take a deep, reflective period of rest and figure out what the root cause of your insecurities are. If you feel like you need to perform, whether at work or within your personal relationships, now is the time to get to the bottom of this habit so that you can finally make a change in 2022. If you’re better at mirroring someone else’s emotions than at being able to label your own, give yourself the time and space to reacquaint yourself with who you are in this chapter of your life. You are not expected to be anyone other than your true self.
I see a lot of opportunities to work, progress, hustle, and level up in January, but be honest with those asking about whether or not you have the time and space to take these tasks on. If you have been feeling overwhelmed by the world, you have every right to ask for a minute to breathe! Deep down, there’s a part of you that feels neglected, and this month will be all about you connecting with your inner voice. No more running away, dear Cancer. The answers are all right here inside of those sensitive, loving chest walls.
