Generalized Overview, All Signs:
The Nine of Wands suggests a change in plans may be on the horizon. Things that have been running smoothly may suddenly come to a halt: this could be your enthusiasm about an idea or even a person who seems to have changed, leaving you uncertain what to do next. The wands suggest digging deeply for inner strength and creativity as you look for resources that may assist you in your decisions.
The King of Wands reminds you to lead your life with intent, vision and a long-term view. Know that even though you are experiencing challenges this month, this is just a part of your journey to something more positive. Eventually you will see this time as just a little blip on the radar and it will have simply served to make you stronger. Stay focused on your long-term goals.
The High Priestess is the third card in the Major Arcana, and is given the number two to indicate the polarity inherent in all things. She sits between the pillars of light and darkness, mercy and severity, positive and negative. She has withdrawn from outside influences, going deep within to gain knowledge from behind the veil of consciousness. The scroll in her lap is labeled “TORA”, the name of the Hebrew holy book, indicating her link to divinity. Behind her, the eternal ocean of emotions and intuition ebbs and flows, and she is the key to its mysteries. The High Priestess indicates that you are seeking more esoteric knowledge, experiencing a spiritual awakening. The attainment of such wisdom requires discipline. She also reminds you to look for the subtle meanings beyond everyday events. You must listen to your inner voice to hear the truth that lies beyond the shallow, mundane world. Trust your instincts.

Monthly Fortune by Astrological Sign:
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): You’ll find that the full moon spotlights health and happiness: pamper yourself and those you’re close to. Take pleasure in taking care: the universe is going to make this even more special right now, so indulge just a bit in the things that soothe you: massages, coffee, bubble baths. You may find, after all this self-care (and, again, don’t forget to include your loved ones) that your spirit catches up to your body mid-month. Your interior world and private thoughts show promise to reach higher levels of creativity and interest than usual and while you should definitely take time to explore this, be careful that you don’t shut people out. Stay the course right now in professional or career matters: this month is one for growth and restoration. Money and ambition are not key players for you until later in the year. Tarot: Queen of Cups. Spirit Animal: Manta Ray. Aura: Ruby. Lucky Numbers: 4, 16, 19, 33, 48, 61.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): The obstacles that are planted in the middle of your path this month, Gemini, are not as daunting as they might first appear to be. You have to assess the situation, then step back and form a game plan. Taking a break before you dive in will help you stay fresh and get an accurate idea of the troubles that lie ahead. They won’t look so big after all. Towards the end of the month, there may be a chance meeting that leads to new ways of thinking. Tarot card of the month: King of Wands. Spirit Animal: Beetle. Aura: Midnight Blue. Lucky Numbers: 7, 17, 19, 25, 36, 43.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): There is a fierce amount of karma coming your way, and it will feel good to soak it all up. The only thing you need to be careful about, however, is finishing a project: a minor but unusual detail will surface, and you’ll need to catch and fix it. Being happy is not always about being perfect. If you’re unhappy with your current relationship, perhaps because you’ve been putting up with something that you really don’t deserve, you’ll come to realize the folly of your ways over the coming month. Tarot card: Seven of Swords. Spirit Animal: Beluga Whale. Aura: Tangerine. Lucky Numbers: 10, 14, 26, 35, 39, 50.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): You might feel a little conspicuous around the time of the new moon, but this will be in all the right ways: you’ll feel appreciated and spot-lit and your best qualities will be the star of the show. It won’t last forever, of course: no one’s that lucky, not even you, so enjoy it while it lasts. Around the seventh or eighth, romance will come to the forefront for you: love may get deeper or something might turn serious. Will this be good or bad? Spring is a good time to look inside and know your heart’s desire…preferably ahead of June 10th. If you need a helping hand or a boost toward the end of the month, rest assured that those who care about you are more than willing to oblige but you may have to ask. Tarot: Two of Wands. Spirit Animal: Okapi. Aura: Magenta. Lucky Numbers: 3, 22, 34, 42, 49, 59.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Secrecy may be the name of the game this month: are you hiding something, Virgo? Guard it or release it, but don’t think for a second you’re going to get away with forgetting it or setting it aside. May will be a good time to clear your conscience and also, in some cases, to clear your eyes: if you’re not the one harboring secrets or practicing deception, it’s possible that someone in your sphere is. Act honestly this month and expect the same respect from others: just don’t assume it’s automatically there. You may want to just run away from something. Unfortunately, reality will catch up. Best to employ your wits and your bravery and face the music whether you like the tune or not. Tarot card: Three of Cups. Spirit Animal: Mongoose. Aura: Mint Cream. Lucky Numbers: 5, 12, 20, 35, 48, 60.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Rainy days this month carry special significance to you. Conquer your fears or they will conquer you. Beware your own excesses this month as they will carry consequences. Temperance will be a good guide and motto for you at this time. Now is a good time to realign your priorities and find balance. Tarot card: Nine of Swords. Spirit Animal: Monarch Butterfly. Aura: Fuchsia. Lucky numbers: 3, 23, 44, 51, 58, 65.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): If you’re struggling with a dilemma, remember that what is good or right for all will be good and right for you, too. Morality is easy; following through can be difficult. But you have what it takes. You might feel, during this month, as though you are sacrificing and scrimping but it’s all for nothing. If things feel stuck and your dreams and goals feel suspended and trapped, relax. This energy is passing out of your life this month. Changes, movement, hope is happening. Brace yourself for what will come: the stagnancy will end quite soon. Don’t delay decisions or procrastinate. Be proactive. The rest will follow. Tarot card: Three of Swords. Spirit Animal: Garter Snake. Aura: Black Pearl. Lucky Numbers: 3, 16, 22, 37, 38, 47.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): This month brings an opportunity for you to build on your confidence, exuberance, and determination in pursuing the things you desire. You may want to watch out that you don’t act too hastily or express sentiments that can’t be unsaid; and you may want to harness your enthusiasm for your ideas: slow down, think them through, make sure they make sense. Your ideas will be the better for it. Be realistic in how you approach new and old endeavors this month: calculated risk and prudence will be your friends. Tarot card: The Hierophant (Reversed). Spirit Animal: Jaguar. Aura: Lemon Yellow. Lucky Numbers: 13, 29, 32, 48, 54, 67.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Money issues may be stable right now and any saving or work you have done to achieve financial successes is showing fruits. However, is it possible that you have been denying other aspects of your heart in favor of financial questions? May will be a good time to examine your priorities and to beware stinting those persons and things that have meaning to you: money is not everything. In other ways, conflict raises its ugly head this month. This is not a time for compromise in the hopes of smoothing things over. Stand on principle, gently perhaps, but don’t waver when you are in the right. Tarot card: Ten of Swords. Spirit Animal: Lynx. Aura: Kelly Green. Lucky Numbers: 3, 41, 51, 52, 61, 65.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): May will be a month in which fulfillment in one form or another is being offered to you: will you recognize it or accept it? That will be up to you. It may depend on whether you are ready and willing for emotional or spiritual growth, with its benefits and its costs. Regardless, emotions are at high tide right now: give and accept love on a new level and open your mind to what is around you. This is a month to connect to others, forgive them when you need to, listen to them, embrace them. Kindness to others will come back to yourself. Do not ignore your creative side: it will also be at a peak and will be very rewarding to you, if you exercise and engage it. Tarot card: Strength. Spirit Animal: Panda. Aura: Jade Green. Lucky Numbers: 1, 19, 25, 33, 44, 61.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): The stars in May find you trying to cling to something that doesn’t want to sit still, like trying to grab a wet fish. The more tightly you squeeze it, the likelier it is to slip out of your grasp. Whether it’s a relationship, habit, idea, dream, or desire, the trick is to be more strategic and less frantic. You also might consider letting the fish go: after all, is it really yours? If you’ve been feeling unsatisfied with the circumstances in your life, it’s time to change that. The good news is that it can most certainly be done over the spring and summer— that’s as long as you’re willing to work at it. Tarot: Four of Swords (Reversed). Spirit Animal: Toucan. Aura: Gold. Lucky Numbers: 5, 18, 19, 29, 38, 42.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Personal space could be in short supply this month, especially around the full moon. It may be time to prepare in advance: schedule some time for yourself, reorganize your space, or launch a preemptive de-cluttering mission. Additionally, there may be some tension between you and a female friend or relative. Clear the air; be honest but kind. Otherwise, ambitious plans you’ve been cultivating over the past season may finally come into fruition. Purpose, career, and self-fulfillment become the focus soon. Tarot: Queen of Wands. Spirit Animal: Elk. Aura: Crimson. Lucky Numbers: 5, 17, 33, 34, 56, 60.
