You’ve identified the things that you crave, that you desire, and allowed those wants to take up space. And as we move into Aries season, you now have the chance to take those blurry, liminal visions and give them clarity, direction, purpose. You have the opportunity to make them tangible.
Opening ourselves up to a new kind of perspective can change everything, and giving ourselves permission to leave old ways behind can help us become the kinds of people that we have always dreamed of being.
After such a tumultuous, complicated, impossible year, the Star feels like it’s an opportunity for something bigger than individual, personal healing. We are being called to reimagine the collective, to consider what our larger future entails, to not be afraid to dream big and reconsider all of the broken things that have been revealed. What is really possible, not just for us but for all?
After spending 2020 evaluating structures and creating new rules, 2021 will challenge us to keep pushing ourselves to grow and expand, to consider what we are allowing to restrict us and why.
Hard-working and unafraid to set boundaries, Capricorn has so much to teach us about our value, our focus, and our confidence. If Sagittarius’ fire has left you feeling lost, if you’re still reeling from the losses and shifts that you experienced with Scorpio, Capricorn is here to help you make sense of where you have come from, and make a structured, detailed plan about where you want to go.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by crashing Towers and painful Deaths, the big changes and shifts within and around us, the endings and releasings and restructurings. But even when we aren’t sure what the fruits of our labors will be just yet, that doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. Sometimes we shift and change in the darkest spaces, hidden from the world and even ourselves, slowly adapting until we are transformed from within.
We are all tangled, delicious mysteries, and Sagittarius wants us to both enjoy all that we do not understand about ourselves and take the space we need to investigate and consider, to find joy in flexibility, to wander and dream and transform.
As we step into this new season of mutable fire, as we prepare to fully leave behind all that Libra and Scorpio have excavated, Sagittarius urges us to open our eyes wide, to take in the world as it is and as it could be, to look for possibilities and magic around every corner.
Scorpio season teaches us that we cannot keep carrying everything that has ever mattered to us and expect to still have energy for new growth — sometimes we have to let things go, or acknowledge what has already gone, before we can truly transform.
While it might feel terrifying to dig into our own secrets with so many other things to worry about, this is a season for patient exploration, for deep introspection. What have you been hiding from? Where have you been longing for freedom, and what has been holding you back?
Libra wants every voice to be heard, every need to be met, for the most vulnerable and marginalized to be lifted up and protected. And as we shift into this new season, Justice demands that we carefully consider beliefs, that we pay attention to the systems that impact us, that we push back against the limits that are harming us. How are you standing up for your community, for those whose voices are so often silenced?
If Strength and Leo season was about finding fiery confidence in the face that we show to the world, Virgo and the Hermit ask us to shine that brilliant light inward, to recognize all that we are and all that we are capable of becoming. What have you been hiding from yourself?
Even if you feel utterly discouraged, Leo season brings an opportunity to take pride in the things we do well, the unique aspects of ourselves that bring pleasure and satisfaction. What sets you apart? What gives you purpose? What are you fighting for?
In this season of Cancer, we learn to open our hearts in specific, calculated, careful ways, allowing others to see our joy and our hope, our dreams, our ambitions. How can you balance stillness and movement, make space for growth as well as stability? Where are you evolving, transforming? What are you pursuing?
When we fully embrace the energy and intention of The Lovers and Gemini, we can honor our wants and needs without feeling selfish, can make space for our desires without feeling greedy, can recognize just how important our dreams really are and go after them without hesitating. What have you learned to love about yourself?
While the Hanged One asks us to wait quietly instead of pushing hard, to surrender to the experience instead of fighting against what we cannot control, this is also a chance to understand what drives us, fulfills us, inspires us. What are you dreaming of? What has become more important to you, and what have you realized isn’t worth your energy?
It may be tempting to cling to familiar habits and routines, to find comfort in the ways we’ve always done things — but don’t be afraid to adapt, to learn, to grow. We have an opportunity, both with this challenging pandemic and this new season of Taurus, to find creative solutions and new ways to work, play, and rest.
Beginning a daily tarot practice is a lovely gift that you can give yourself, whether you use this ritual for journal prompts, meditations, or just an opportunity to swear at an inanimate object for a few minutes every day.
Ambitious and bold, this is an opportunity to take on new challenges, to see things through our most optimistic lens. When have you been holding back? Where have you been afraid to voice your desires, your ambitions, your deepest wants? What the hell is stopping you from going after what you want?
The Emperor doesn’t have to be a symbol of everything that’s oppressed us, that’s harmed or damaged or traumatized us – instead, it can be an invitation to reclaim the foundations that have already been built, to shake them up and find ways to use them in new and empowering ways, or to tear them down and rebuild completely.
Not for the faint of heart, the following spreads are for when you need brutally honest advice, a reminder of the shit you already know, or a powerful truth to break you out of that denial.
