ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Sister Rosetta Tharpe - The Sun
Well, the sun may not be in your sign anymore, but you’re still in the spotlight! I don’t mean to be a wet blanket, but be careful not to avoid dealing with the hard stuff just because the good stuff feels so good right these days. You’re a fire sign, so charge yourself up in the sun’s rays, listen to some feel-good music, and do what you need to do.

Joan of Arc - The Fool
Happy birthday! After Mercury goes direct on May 3rd, this will be a good month for you to start a new project.

Now is the time to follow your desire and take action, even if it feels risky.
GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 20)
Marilyn Monroe - 6 of Cups
May is bound to bring up some sentimental memories for you. Perhaps it’s your birthday coming up later this month/next month, or someone dear to you comes to visit.

CANCER (JUNE 21 - JULY 22)

You have a way with words this month. Especially after Mercury, the communication planet, goes direct on the 3rd, everything you say will flow.

Remember to keep your sense of humor, too, and have a little fun in the process.
LEO (JULY 23 - AUGUST 22)
Hildegard of Bingen - The High Priestess
May is a month of introspection for you; this might be a good time for your to receive divine guidance. All that fire energy is going to be present in your mind’s subconscious activities, so keep your notebook handy at your bedside to write down your dreams! You’re a social creature, but remember to take enough time for yourself to really get the most out of your self-reflection.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22)

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 22)
Sophia Duleep Singh - Judgement
If you’ve been feeling down recently, take heart, it’ll be this month that you finally feel revived and fresh! And even better, you’re going to have a sense of clarity around aspects of your life that you felt confused about before. Remember to examine your own judgements about others and your current situation; maybe there’s a new way of seeing things.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 21 - DECEMBER 21)
Khadija - 9 of Pentacles
Be sure to get all your financial ducks in a row this month! There may be an opportunity that comes up for you to make some serious bank--a new job, or maybe that side hustle you’ve been working on really picks up steam. Put in the work to be ready for upcoming opportunities, and the rest will fall into place.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19)
St. Julian of Norwich - 3 of Swords
This month might be that month that you have to unpack some difficult emotional baggage. But don’t worry, you’ve got the stuff it takes to complete the task with flying colors. Just remember to let yourself feel your feelings, even if they suck--it’s all temporary.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 19)
Assata Shakur - Keeper of Swords
May is a good time for you take on that leadership position that you’ve been offered. If you haven’t been offered one, create it for yourself. You’ve got the brainpower and the guts right now to really make your mark. Just remember to pay attention to the other people around you; some people may need to fade from your life, while others are best kept at your side.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)

May is a dreamy month for you. The year is almost halfway over, so take stock of your aspirations and pat yourself on the back for what you’ve accomplished so month. This month is a good time for you to connect to others around you, and to meet new friends. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I’ll say it: there’s a whole world out there for you!
