June Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe

 

Aries

The New Moon on the 3rd is going to have your head buzzing with new ideas and projects, but be wary of this energy. You’re an inspired person but you need to work on your follow through. When Venus goes into Gemini on the 9th you’ll find that your spending habits are less than wise for the rest of the month. Spending money is good and helpful, but you’ll need to take extra care to make sure you don’t do any irrevocable damages to your financial stability. Luckily that Sagittarius Full Moon on the 17th will help you see things in a big picture kind of way. You don’t have to sacrifice pleasure in order to be better with money, you just need to be smart and intentional. The 25th, 26th and 27th are advisable days for you to make some money moves. Get an investment app, learn about using leverage, set wealth goals.

Taurus

I won’t lie, this is going to be a month full of growth for you bulls (read: hard lessons). You’re going to have a lot of new opportunities presented to you at the beginning of the month but you’ll lack the ability to move forward with all of them, and letting go of things is not a strong point for you. You’re usually pretty frugal, except when it comes to personal pleasure, and your friends know that; there are going to be a number of tantalizing social engagements after Venus shifts into Gemini on the 9th. Be wary of your spending, the whole bar does not need you to buy the next round. Your steadfast practicality and opinions are a strength of yours, but you’re going to be questioning what you believe in around the Sagittarius Full Moon on the 17th. Speaking from the heart sometimes get you into trouble, but it might be the very push you need. Loosen those lips on the 27th, 28th, and 29th.

Gemini

People might say that you’re easily distracted, Gemini, but the real tee is that you’re multi-talented. You’re pretty good at a lot of different things, and from the 2nd through the 4th, especially during the Gemini New Moon on the 3rd, you’re going to be abuzz with exciting new projects and ideas to work on. When Venus also enters into your sun sign on the 9th you’ll get an extra boost in cash from some side projects that should be sustained through the rest of the month. The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 17th offers you an opportunity to think big picture. What do you want to be able to say that you do for work in 5 years? What is standing in your way of making progress there? Release it during this moon phase. And if you’re a performer, the end of the month is looking fortuitous for you. Don’t be afraid to act this month.

Cancer

The New Moon on the 3rd is going to make you want to curl up in the fetal position (Cancer’s favorite position tbh) but fear not because a new resurgence of energy awaits you the very next day. If you’re a writer, public speaker, story teller, or work with children/the elderly then work will be booming after Mercury goes into your Sun Sign on the 4th. Authentic movement in your life is sure to happen from the 4th through the 6th. With summer’s embrace so close you’re likely to spend a bit too much on those campsite or Air bnb weekend getaways, but sometimes spending that extra cash is necessary, my frugal Cancer bbs! In fact, that Sagittarius Full Moon on the 17th is a good time to release the idea that money is best saved. Plan a trip overseas, even if all you do is plan for now you’re sending out the vibrations into the world, and the world listens. Be wary of your temper at the end of the month (you know you have one), it could get you in a sticky position at work.

Leo

Your imagination is going to be popping off at the start of the month, but by the 4th you’re going to struggle with articulating all these new ideas that you have. Put pen to paper, dance, sing, paint, whatever it is, just learn to express your ideas in different ways. Something lucky should come around the 7th, make sure you say yes to this opportunity. Saying yes to things lets the Universe know that you’re ready to grow, you can always prune later. The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 17th is going to be a beautiful time for you to release old philosophies that don’t help to facilitate growth, especially in regards to whatever new ideas or projects you have been working on. Mercury moves into Leo on the 27th and this is the perfect time to tie up lose ends, sign any documents, buy new electronics or online courses, since it will soon be retrograde.

Virgo

Postpone any decision making until after the 3rd because that Gemini New Moon is going to ramp up your already overpowered mind. Use your hands that day, clean, organize, don’t act, and try not to overthink yourself into a panic. The 8th, 9th, and 10th will be lucky days for you, so any work having to do with communicating should be put off until then. With Venus going into Gemini on the 9th you’re going to be called to go into overdrive with work. Make sure you also take your self care into overdrive to prevent burnout. There is a dogma to be analyzed during the Sagittarius Full Moon in the 17th. It’s holding you back. Release it. When the Sun goes into Cancer on the 21st your natural gifts of healing are amplified, use this in all walks of life.

Libra

Throw a party on the Gemini New Moon, or find another way to utilize your charming and articulate super-powered speech. The next day, the 4th, Mercury moves into Cancer and you’ll be getting lost in stories without endings. But by the 9th you should be out of that funk, and by “out of that funk,” I mean, on a shopping spree. When Venus is in Gemini it only enhances your love of shiny things; be mindful with your money. However, you’ll be feeling the lucky vibes of the Sagittarius Full Moon on the 17th. It’s going to help you be more decisive, so release you fears of failure and dive in. The days leading up to the moon, beginning on the 11th, are key days of action for you. If there are any important speaking or writing gigs coming up for you, after Mercury goes into Leo on the 27th, you’ll find that your voice is particularly magnetic.

Scorpio

The 13th and 14th will be luck filled days for you, but the Gemini New Moon on the 3rd will be a confusing time. Gemini likes to explore the surface and you love to go deep, Scorpio. Once Mercury moves into Cancer on the 4th you’ll be better able to communicate, especially if you are a writer or story teller of sorts. Your usual cautious way with money will be met with a few roads blocks after the 9th when Venus moves into Gemini. Remember that it’s ok to spend or lose money sometimes, there is always more on its way to you. Dig deep on the 17th when the moon is full in Sagittarius, this is an optimistic time and you deserve to feel some optimism. Release some of those imposter syndrome thoughts by writing them down on a piece of paper and then lighting said paper on fire. Wrap up any legal dealings before July starts.

Sagittarius

The Gemini New Moon on the 3rd is a stimulating yet frustrating time for you where you’re going to be called to focus on the all the small things (truth care truth brings.) Don’t forget that big goals are made of lots of small ones. Make a list of small goals on this day. Do your best to think before you speak after the 4th, but also forgive yourself because that’s not exactly the classic Sagittarius MO. When it comes to spending this month, you’re going to be buying both instead of either/or. Make sure to keep frequent tabs on your spending, especially when it comes to eating and drinking out. The 15th and 16th could bring a lucky opportunity your way, which culminates with the Full Moon on the 17th. Release the idea of where you think you should be and instead embrace how far you’ve come. This Sagittarius full moon will energize you.

Capricorn

The Gemini New Moon on the 3rd will make you feel uncomfortably loquacious at the start of the month. It may feel weird, but you can definitely use this energy to your advantage. Reach out to people you admire, people you want to learn from or collaborate with. Whoever responds on or by the 4th is someone you should be able to trust. Your intuition will be strong this month, listen to it. Life is going to force you to spend money this month, so don’t be too hard on yourself if your budget goes a bit off track. Release your need for logic and allow trust and belief to take over on the 17th when the moon is full in Sagittarius. If you can practice some optimistic surrender then you may find that something beautifully unexpected comes your way on the 18th or 19th. Your leadership abilities will take on a new flavor when Mercury goes into Leo on the 27th, go with it.

Aquarius

The Gemini New Moon on the 3rd is the perfect time to play. Open up stimulating conversations, do research on a bunch of new interesting topics, or sign up for a new online course. This is going to be a great month of study for you with Venus also moving into Gemini on the 9th. If you want to uplevel your business or career this is the month to do it, you’ll have all the energy and excitement necessary to take some big leaps. You can be single focused and stubborn, but the Sagittarius Full Moon on the 17th is asking you to let go of your carefully crafted plans and make space for something bigger to come into your life. Any big purchases or legal dealings should be dealt with on the 20th, 21st, or 22nd, especially with the next Mercury retrograde right around the corner.

Pisces

You’re multitalented, Pisces, so use the Gemini New Moon on the 3rd to call in inspiration for some of your passion projects. This is going to require some effort on your part, so make sure to set aside time and craft the perfect ambience to let your creativity flow. If you’re a writer or poet you’ll feel that in the zone feeling this month after Mercury goes into Cancer on the 4th. Release your fear of failure, your inner saboteur, on the 17th with the optimistic Sagittarius Full Moon. Make sure to keep track of your spendings, you’re likely to overspend in June. Once the sun goes into Cancer on the 21st you’ll be holding onto your money more tightly, make sure you’re not being frugal to a fault, though. You’re allowed to have fun. You’re worthy. The 23rd and 24th are going to be beautiful days of optimism, use this to reignite your creative flame.

May Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe

 

Aries

Your usual go go go attitude is going to be faced with a couple road blocks this month, and by “road blocks” I mean naps. You know what it feels like to run against some really strong winds? Yeah that’s you at the start of May. But hey, maybe it’s just the universe telling you to sit the down and put your money where your mouth is. Venus enters Taurus on the 15th; this is a good time to practice saving your money for the right moment. You’re being called to release your fears around money and success at the end of the month with that Scorpio full moon, but what does that mean for you? It’s going to require extra effort on your part to figure out what needs to be released, it won’t come naturally. It’s also ok if you are still confused by this on the 18th when Luna is nice and full, just be present and forgiving. The first 3 and the final 3 days of the month will be lucky for you, so you’ll have those highs to carry you.

Taurus

May is your time to shine Taurus! The moon will be in Taurus on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th bringing with it a new rejuvenated energy… one you can use to do all the things you love the most: control the situation, complain about being in charge, eat take out, crush your goals despite being thought of as lazy, take a nap after hitting said goal, etc. By the 15th of the month the Sun, Mercury, and Venus will all be in Taurus. So utilize this time to focus on being your high vibe self. High vibe Taurus knows what they want and also exactly how to get it. The full moon on the 18th is all about releasing that which no longer serves you and it’s in your opposing sign of Scorpio, so release an obsessive thought surrounding your money. The 31st will be a lucky money magick day for you.

Gemini

You are being called to slow down in the first two weeks of May. Be thoughtful with the words you use and the way you spend your money, which is easier said than done. Be on the look out for career opportunities on the 6th and 7th. This time of slowing down should be used to put some thought into your bigger plans and goals. Whether they be business plans or that big summer camping trip you’re going on, your plans need your undivided attention… well, as undivided as you can manage. By mid month you’re going to feel frustrated and a little confined; it’s ok to cry about it. With Mars moving into Cancer around the same time as the Scorpio Full Moon it’s a good idea for you to spend time connecting with water; take a bath, walk alongside a river, catch moon water, scry into a glass of La Croix. On the 21st the Sun and Mercury are conjunct in Gemini, giving you a much needed boost of energy to sail into the tail end of Spring.

Cancer

Taurus season is second only to your own sun sign season, my little cutie crabs. The New Moon on the 4th is a good time for you to call in new ways of deepening your foundations. Think about your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual security at this time. The 8th, 9th, and 10th are days of action for you, so don’t be afraid to go after what you need to in order to find that aforementioned security. Mars moves into Cancer on the 16th making your usual modes of passion particularly magnetic. Let your emotions drive you to new heights. Recognize that having feelings is your super power! Release the negative stories you have about money on the Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th. I know that Cancer horoscopes always talk about crying, but this water moon is a great time to cry in the fetal position, dance in a creek a midnight, or scream into a cup of tea. Emotions can be released in many ways, and if anyone understands that it’s you, Cancer.

Leo

I’m not gonna lie my little lion cubs, this is going to be rough month for you. I tell you this so that you can mentally prepare and handle it like the bad ass that you are. That Taurus New Moon wants you to relax and allow space for more structure in your life, but structure can hold you back from expanding to your fullest potential, right?!? How can you balance your need to be open to all possibilities with the grounded structure of Taurus? That’s the work this month. On the 15th Venus moves into Taurus and you may find that you want to blow your mid month pay check on an over priced bikini or some other luxury item. Instead you should save that paper for something even better, something worth waiting for (did someone say Vegas pool party?) The Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th is asking you to go deep and release an unhelpful narrative around money. Going deep isn’t your favorite thing, but it is necessary. By the 21st you’ll be feeling more expansive and curious with the sun and mercury in Gemini.

Virgo

With lots of Earth and Water in the air this month you’ll be feeling super charged and ready to tackle that lengthy list of to do’s, Virgo. Use the Taurus New Moon on the 4th to create a wealth intention. How do you want to grow? What do you want to add into your life? Dream big because this is a moon phase that particularly speaks to you and your ability to create perfection on this earthly plane. In the final days of Venus in Aries you’ll be riding a powerful wave of luck that will culminate on the 15th. Luck is wasted if not utilized though. Venus in Taurus will help you distinguish when you need to save and when to invest in yourself. Mars might be in fall in Cancer but it’s a placement you understand. The latter end of the month is the perfect time for you to focus on how you heal your friends/ family/ community/ the world. Use the Scorpio moon on the 18th to scale back your work load. The idea is to work smarter not harder.

Libra

Taurus might share your planetary ruler but there are more than a few misunderstandings between the signs, and so misunderstandings are going to follow you this month. But by the 21st your communication skills will flow with ease and grace as per usual; you’ll need to account for some extra necessary tact for the first 20 days of the month. Frustrations in work and business will likely make you more emotional than usual by the time Mars moves into Cancer on the 16th, but the moon will also be in Libra on that day, so a beautiful opportunity may come if you allow your emotions to flow freely. Full moons are always about releasing that which no longer serves us, so use the Scorpio moon on the 18th to release a negative mindset around your career. On the 21st the Sun and Mercury move into fellow air sign, Gemini. It is then that you are being called to integrate the lessons of the first 3 weeks of this month.

Scorpio

Ah, Taurus season, a time when you’re more inclined to spend your money on your favorite guilty pleasures. Scorpio, you probably understand money better than anyone in the zodiac, don’t forget that this month! Use your opposing sign to learn how to better invest in yourself, particularly on and after the 15th when Venus enters Taurus. Your ability to understand people is heightened when Mars enters Cancer on the 16th, so use that knowledge to your best benefit. In fact the 15th through the 18th is a super charged time for you, so if you have any big plans or deals on your to do list, I’d suggest working on them in that time frame. I don’t need to tell you what to release on the Full Moon on the 18th, you will already know. Set an intention and be specific. Handle any important conversations before the 21st or else you may find yourself entangled in more than one lie.

Sagittarius

There is a serious slowing down that’s happening this month and that might be a lot to ask of you. Taurus might be an archetype that feels very distant and confusing for you, but try to use it to focus on the details of your life. You’re a big picture person, but you’re being called to focus on the small day to day stuff, especially when it comes to money and structure. Practice making to do lists and finding joy in checking things off. You might not be sure what to release on the Scorpio Full Moon on the 18th but if you can spend sometime alone taking a nice long bath or relaxing shower it might reveal itself to you. And even if it doesn’t, be proud of yourself for taking some alone time; you can tell everyone about it when Mercury goes into Gemini on the 21st. An important conversation will take place at the end of the month with someone younger than you, so take note.

Capricorn

Call in all the money and success this month, Earth Babies! You love a long goal, so set a big one on the 4th when the moon is new in Taurus. Venus moves into fellow Earth sign, Taurus, on the 15th. You’re usually the type to save rather than spend but the gift of Venus in Taurus is the realization that you need to invest some of that hard earned money into yourself to make true progress. Mars enters Cancer on the 16th and it’s asking you to nurture your existing projects. Give some much needed heart and soul to your goals and watch them flourish. You love Scorpios and feel very comfortable within the darkness of a Scorpio moon, so on the 18th make sure to set an intention around releasing things that no longer serve you in your career. This is a powerful manifestation energy so be very specific and intentional. Be on the look out for interesting new opportunities on the 21st, 22nd, and 23rd of the month.

Aquarius

With all of the earth and water signs taking over the sky this month, your usually articulate and matter of fact way of dealing with things is not going to work in your favor. You might not be the most emotive sign but you are deeply empathetic, so fall on those laurels this month. The Taurus New Moon on the 4th is a good time to look at the structures in your life. If you run a business this is the time to call in growth. If you want to start a side hustle, now is the time to put plans into action. With Mars going into Cancer on the 16th you’ll want to focus on how to water your garden. Slow down and take care of all of your passion projects and dreams. On the 18th when the moon is full in Scorpio you’ll want to look into how you spend your money, a hard choice may have to be made, but you can do it my little space babes. You are in charge of your abundance! By the 21st the Sun and Mercury will be in Gemini and this will have a number of new and exciting opportunities fall into your lap so long as you are showing up and doing the work.

Pisces

The New Moon in Taurus on the 4th is probably going to make you want to sleep as opposed to call anything new into your life. I dare you to indulge in your 5 senses at this time and allow this exploration to open new pathways to growth in your life and business. When the planet of love and money also goes into Taurus on the 15th you’ll know exactly what to do: make an investment or create an action plan in regards to your money. You might not be where you want to be financially, but this Venus phase is going to help you bring roots to your goals. With Mars going into Cancer right before the Scorpio Full Moon on the 28th, you’ll be feeling comfortable and ready to use your natural powers of empathy, healing, and artistic ability to your best benefit. Use the moon phase to dive deep into the negative mindset you may have around money. Money isn’t evil, can you believe that? Be on the look out for something special to come your way on the 26th, 27th, or 28th.

April Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe

 

Aries

That Aries New Moon on the 5th is your Divine call to action! This day is a harmonious day for you to start any new endeavor and since it’s in your natal sun sign you’ll be feeling super charged all day; do that bold thing you had been putting off. You’ll be feeling a natural call to tighten your finances around the 10th. Make a budget, check your account statements, it’s always a good idea to be mindful when it comes to wealth. On the 17th you’re usual direct way of speaking is enhanced, so if you have any important meetings or calls to make do so on or after the 17th when Mercury will be in Aries. The second of two Libra full moons will be on the 19th, this is your final call to release the things, thoughts, and people that do not add harmony to your life. Reevaluate the people you partner with. At the end of the month one voice in your head will be telling you to buy a big ticket item. Another voice will be telling you to use your money responsibly. Try to hear both voices out.

Taurus

That gym membership you’ve been thinking about getting is looking real nice around the New Moon on the 5th but by the 10th you may be regretting the purchase. If you’re worried about money look at your bank statement. Are you eating out too much? If you can’t put it on the company card then you should probably scale back and save some money. Mercury will be in Aries from the 17th until May, your opinions hit more bluntly than usual for the latter half of the month and by the 19th you might be looking down the barrel of a break up. Maybe it’s the termination of a project you’ve been working on, or ending a business partnership, or maybe you will have to fire someone or end a relationship with a client. The Pluto and Saturn retrogrades at the end of the month, starting with Pluto on the 24th, will help you handle this situation with grace. Pluto will help you rebuild and Saturn gives a much needed reality check.

Gemini

Your already rampant mind is full of new ideas on the 5th. Remember, a million dollar idea is only worth it if you match your passion with the appropriate actions. That Jupiter retrograde on the 10th is going to hit you hard, either in a good or bad way. Something that isn’t working for you will be taken away from you during this transit, whether you wallow or pick yourself back up off the ground and keep going is up to you. Whatever Jupiter takes away is only happening to make room for something else. Your natural charm is upleveled after Mercury goes into Aries on the 17th. You’ve always known how to use your gift for gab to your advantage, if you need help just ask. Clean up your work space on the 19th, especially if you’re feeling stuck or bored with the work you do. That money you’ve been saving for a summer adventure? On the 20th you’ll want to start looking at booking the campsite or buying the 8 person floatie.

Cancer 

There’s a real duality to the beginning of the month for you Crabs. On one hand, Spring time in full bloom (for those us us in the Northern Hemisphere) has you feeling some type of way, and yet as soon as you go outside you may be feeling like turning around and going right back in. Be gentle with your fluctuating needs. The 10th brings a loss, probably your keys or that $10 bill you had in your jacket pocket for weeks. An argument on the 17th will linger (as they usually do) up to the the 2nd Libra full moon on the 19th. This is a good time to let go of the hurt and allow yourself to actually forgive and forget this time. Once Taurus season hits the next day you’ll be feeling much more like yourself, maybe too much so. Be wary of any purchases you make on the 20th because you’ll probably want to return them. The Pluto and Saturn retrogrades at the end of the month are going to be a call to action for you Cancer. You’ll be like a hermit crab looking for a new, better home. Don’t forget that your first home is yourself.

Leo

That New Moon energy has you feeling like making new business cards and leaving them in every cool coffee shop around town. A natural leader and performer, you’ll do yourself well to make bold choices around the 5th. There’s room for everyone to shine in this world but nobody really shines brighter than a Leo, keep this in mind as Jupiter goes retrograde in the 10th. A new job, gig, opportunity, or client will back out or be taken out of your grasp but that’s ok, you didn’t need it! Trust me! Speak your truth on the 17, you’ll find that there was something you’ve been holding back and you simply can’t keep it close to your chest anymore. Let the Lion(ness) roar! Happy hour drinks or any other sort of social gathering close to the second Libra full moon on the 19th can bring you luck in business partnerships. Wanna collab with that dope witch you’ve been following on insta for a few months? Message them sometime between the 17th and the 20th for extra good luck. The end of the month may bring up some big questions but all in all it’s a very good time to be a Leo.

Virgo

You have a lot of restless energy at the start of the month. Some aspect of your job or work life is feeling way too confusing for you, it’s making your well ordered brain itch. Just allow this situation to be, if you try to fix it you’ll only make it worse, especially since things will com to a head on their own around the 10th. You’re great at saving, right? You may have a reason to dip into those savings at this time but, fear not, this is exactly why people save their money. Your communication style is going to hit someone in the wrong way around the 17th or at some point in the month thereafter. Be conscious of the fact that not everyone is down for constructive criticism… at least make sure you’re actually being constructive. There is a big release needed from you at the end of the month starting around the 19th and after a somewhat tumultuous fist few weeks you’re actually going to be so ready for the shifts and changes you’re being asked to make. If there’s one thing Virgo can do it is rebuild (and come back better than every baby).

Libra

The power has shifted for you on the 5th and you won’t be complaining at all, if more people lived life the way you do the world would be a more beautiful place. Use your magnanimous charm for good, the people are listening. There will be a loss at work or in your career around the 10th when Jupiter stations to go retrograde but this is going to be a loss that you’ve been secretly waiting for, or it’s a loss you won’t know that you needed until it’s gone, either way it won’t hurt. An inner boss bitch voice may come out a few times this month but it’s ok to be tough sometimes, your voice needs to be heard. That second Full Moon in your natal sun sign is going to give you a power surge, but it’s up to you how you’ll use the energy. Trust yourself. Think before you spend near the end of the month (and into May as well) or else you’ll wake up from a day dream and be surrounded by a myriad of pretty new things, which isn’t the worst way to to wake up from a dream, but it sure as hell isn’t a smart money move.

Scorpio 

Your sense of self is going to come into question in the beginning of the month. Don’t act on this confusing energy, just let it sit. A loss around the 10th is going to hurt your bank account, so it’s time to get serious about your budget, organize your money habits. Relations at work are strained for you around the Full Moon on the 19th. You’ll find yourself saying things that you wish you’d kept close to your chest, simply because people are going to misconstrue what you’re trying to convey. You might want to work from home if you can to avoid making Susan in finance cry at her desk on accident. Things relax shortly after the Full Moon as the Sun enters your opposing sign Taurus. There’s a real “do what you need to do” vibe for you natal Scorpios at the end of the month. It’s not a “treat yo self” vibe, more like an adult version. Do the stuff that needs to be done, Scorpios are no stranger to this concept!

Sagittarius

Your heart is going to know exactly what it wants on the 5th, but it’s likely to change its mind by the time your ruling planet of Jupiter stations to go retrograde for a few months on the 10th. This is a big leveling up for you natal Sagittarians when it comes to how you make money, but leveling up requires reflection, intention, and action-in that order! With Mercury going into Aries on the 17th you’ll find that you’ll be able to articulate yourself with more grace than usual. This is a time for speaking from the heart. An effortless release happens around the 19th and it creates space for you to travel. Perhaps it’s the release of an obligation or a relationship that was holding you back from beginning a new adventure. Lots of good shifts are coming your way! Taurus season begins on the 10th, and it may be a time of year when you find yourself nervously shaking your leg, biting the backs of your pens, and tapping incessantly on the table, but you’re going to be invited to lead in a big way around that time. Be wary, sometimes getting what we want is actually a tough lesson in disguise.

Capricorn 

There’s tension for you around the 5th, but then again, does Capricorn not thrive in tension? Use this energy to kick start you on to a new project, be it getting back into running/the gym, starting to write that book you’ve been planning relentlessly, or even cancelling your Netflix subscription so you can be more productive this spring. Mercury in Aries isn’t your favorite aspect to live through, but once again, you’re a tough a** goat! You might come off the wrong way at work and with friends but having others fear you isn’t always a bad thing is it? In fact, there is a relationship that may end this month. Remember, every person we have in our life is a relationship, so this isn’t necessarily romantic but it is a necessary release (even if it doesn’t feel so good). On the 20th the sun will enter your sibling sing of Taurus and this energy is calling for you to tighten your grip on your money. Some call it stingy but you know that nothing is guaranteed and money talks.

Aquarius

You’ll meet someone new at the beginning of the month. This person is going to inspire you with the way they live their life. Allow them to be the teacher for once. When Jupiter stations to go retrograde on the 10th you’ll find that the usual uncomfortable groans or avoided eye contact that strangers and friends alike give when you’re on your 3rd diatribe about the inequalities and injustices in our modern society suddenly have turned into an interested audience. People will be willing to listen to you because you speak from the heart. Sure, you’re smart as hell too, but you’ll need to keep checking back in with yourself starting on the 17th to make sure that the words you speak are your own; that’s what people want to hear. In fact, if being paid to publicly speak (or to write) is something you’ve been toying with, the stars are aligning this month to make it so. The world needs your voice, and boy do you have quite a few things you’ve been wanting to say.

Pisces

Sometimes taking a good hard look at ourselves is the scariest thing we can do, but the Universe is calling you to do so at the beginning of the month. What do you need specifically? What does success look like to you? What does freedom look like to you? How are you showing up for yourself and your dreams? A loss around the middle of the month is a necessary one. You’ll receive a message on the 10th about what this “loss” will be all about. You’ll feel the shift on the 17th when Mercury enters Aries, this might end the retrograde shadow but it won’t be a hallelujah sigh of relief for you, Pisces. You’ll be feeling the energy of everyone you encounter, so work from home if you can, spend time alone especially near water. Around the full moon on the 19th you’ll face a difficult conversation with a loved one, but fear not, difficult conversations can lead to stronger bonds shared if the language used is nonvoilent. You can both come out winners. Make sure your spendings are in line with your highest good at the end of the month.

March Money ‘Scopes by Jasmine Wolfe

 

Aries

The time of Aries is approaching this month and you can feel the excitement bubbling up inside of you, shaking your limbs and calling upon your deep sense of adventure. Venus, the planet of love and money, shifts into Aquarius on the 1st. You may receive some unexpected money on this day, so keep your phone handy for any emails or phone calls coming your way. With the Mercury retrograde on the 5th and the new moon, both in Pisces, on the 6th you may be feeling frustrated by the lack of clear communication. Don’t lash out with anger, instead use your skills of direct communication to get things done. The full moon in Libra on the 21st gives you an opportunity to analyze your spendings, are they in harmony with your life path? Get rid of any unnecessary spending and be wary of emotional spending on the 26th.

Taurus

You’re going to be feeling like money is flying away from you faster than you can keep track of it at the start of the month with Venus in Aquarius. Recognize that money is always coming to you, and you are the only one who gets to decide how you spend it. By the 6th you should be feeling more secure and stable, and the new moon in Pisces will give you a great opportunity to welcome more wealth into your life. Both Mars and Uranus will be in Taurus this month so you’ll feel very comfortable with doing things your way and at your own pace. Be wary of your own stubbornness as everyone else around you may be feeling the same way. It is a favorable month to take actionable steps towards your dreams, so when Venus enters Pisces on the 26th you’ll want to send the email, apply to the job, and buy the tools you need in order to bring your dreams into reality.

Gemini

The 1st of the month will bring you an opportunity for a new business endeavour which will likely come from a friend or work acquaintance. You, like everyone else, will be feeling emotional around the 6th. You’ll be reading too much into things, take a break at work and go for a walk. If you cry in the bathroom it’s ok, I won’t tell anyone. By the time the Full Moon rises on the 21st you may be ready to sign some important documents. Dot your i’s with a heart. Full moons are a good time to release anything you don’t need in your life in the next month, so hangout with a close friend and talk about the world you want to see. An old friend may call you for a favor at the end of the month, the favor being some money lended. My friend’s dad once said, “never lend money to a friend you want to keep.” Me and my friend made it work, but I can’t deny that he had a point.

Cancer

Bills, bills, bills, is paying them the only reason you go to work? That’s what it will feel like for most of the month. Be diligent about tracking your income and spending otherwise it will seem like your money has packed its bags and run off in the middle of the night. Monetarily, things move a little easier around the new moon on the 6th. Your emotions will feel like they’re working with you, not against you, so use the new moon energy at work to think of creative solutions to whatever is going on at work or in your personal life. You’ll get recognized for a job well done around the 6th, make sure to do things at your own pace and in your own way though! Prepare for an unexpected event on the 21st. It will require you to drop some extra cash, so start saving up now. By the 26th you’ll be in the clear again.

Leo

Venus moves into your polarity on the 1st of the month so now is a good time to buy that new laptop or phone you’ve been thinking about; just make sure you buy any electronics before that Mercury retrograde on the 5th. A situation at work is going to leave you utterly confused on the 6th, and in fact, this whole retrograde is going to leave you with far more answers than questions. If you don’t understand what your boss or client is asking you to do, try to ask as directly as possible. Tensions may rise and leave you feeling stuck with no way out. Feel free to browse job openings elsewhere at your desk when your coworkers aren’t looking, but hold out until the full moon on the 21st, because your dream job may just fall into your lap. Ok, maybe not fall into your lap, but the opportunity to do something you truly love could cross your path.

Virgo

The Mercury retrograde in Pisces is going to mess with you in a special way. Back up everything on your phone and computer in the first 4 days of the month. Keep your electronics far away from the toilet, the sink, your fancy water bottle. Be aware that your calm, direct way of speaking is going to ruffle some feathers at work in the middle of the month. Do your best to keep your cool even when others are slacking, a meeting with HR is the last thing you want to do right now. After the 6th you’re going to need the space in your career to do things exactly as you want to. Ask your boss or client to have faith in your ability to know what is best, but be prepared for it to not go your way, especially around the 21st. 

Libra

Did someone get a bonus at work? Maybe a promotion? If you use your innate charm this month you can have the new title and the pay bump. The people in charge are picking up what you are putting down and they are particularly aware of your level head this month. You may feel stuck and confused with a lack of energy going into your work on the 6th, the new moon in Pisces and Uranus shifting into Taurus is to blame. Confusion and head butting is sure to ensue, just try not to unload your grievances on too many coworkers. Work gossip is only fun when it isn’t about you. The full moon in Libra is on the 21st! And you know what that means, big money baby. This is the time to do what needs to be done in order to live the life that you want to live. Don’t be afraid to ask the universe for exactly what you want. It listens. 

Scorpio

You’ll find that your taxes are particularly confusing if you try to do them in the beginning of the month, especially if you’re planning to file them online. To be honest, it’s 2019 who isn’t filling their taxes online? The energy of the New Moon on the 6th will have you feeling ready to start that project you’ve been putting off, but we are working through a Mercury Retrograde this month. That’s no reason to not utilize those good feelings around the 6th, but stay true to your powerful Scorpio self and double check that all your files are backed up, and read the article twice before signing on the dotted line. You’ll be feeling restless around the full moon on the 21st but it’s just a passing feeling, and restlessness can push you towards something you wouldn’t have originally considered.

Sagittarius

I know that for most Sag suns, speaking your mind isn’t something you have to try to do, but it is something that is going to work to your best benefit this month. Talk to your boss about that new project you want to work on, but maybe not on the 6th. That new moon energy is going to leave you feeling an excess of energy which could lead to one of those epic foot-in-mouth moments that you know Linda is going to talk about in the break room. Fear not, there’s an opportunity around the 21st that will be a win win for you and whoever else in involved. Pay attention to any opportunity to give back to others, you’ll get back much more than you give. Something you buy online at the end of the month may not be exactly what you wanted but if anyone can take a negative and make it positive it’s you Sagittarius!

Capricorn

Things at work are shifting on the 1st and it’s going to make you feel a special kind of frustrated. There may be a new computer program your job or company is getting installed, and so all the structure you were happily used to is going to change. Double check that you’ve saved everything in those first few days of March and keep your coffee away from your computer to safe guard from any accidental spills. You’re going to feel more like your boss self by the New Moon on the 6th. This is a good day to seize or create a new opportunity in regards to your wealth. Sometimes opportunities fall into our laps and other times they are something we need to create. There is potential for work gossip around the Libra full moon on the 21st, try not to feed into it but keep your ears open. Your ability to understand other peoples emotions will do you well by the end of the month.

Aquarius

This is going to be a fruitful month for you solar Aquarians! With Venus in your sun sign money is something that flows easily to you. Be careful of frivolous overspending, you may be questioning some recent purchases by the new moon on the 6th. With all that money coming your way money will seem like a play thing, but it is an energy that demands respect. Organize and categorize your things, detach yourself from anything that you no longer need. If anyone owes you money, don’t try to confront them on the 21st. Also don’t be surprised if a date asks you to split the bill that night. It’s 2019 after all and your a strong independent human.

Pisces

You’re likely to be spending without keeping tabs on your bank account this month and who can blame you? It is your birthday season after all. The Pisces Mercury retrograde on the 5th is going to have you feeling things more deeply than usual, but probably in a good way. It’s a good time for you to pick up an instrument, listen to songs or watch movies from your childhood, and pick up a pencil or paintbrush. On the 6th a new passion project or job opportunity will arise. With Uranus moving into Taurus you’ll be getting the right kind of kick in the butt to actually follow through with this opportunity. Make sure to get some alone time on the 21st, plan for a mental health day if you can, because that Libra full moon is going to make you feel lost and unmoored. If you need to buy any new supplies for that aforementioned opportunity, make sure to save any big ticket items for the 26th and beyond.

February Money ‘Scopes

Aries 
February starts with power struggles causing a stand-still at work. The 3rd helps to mend such issues, due to Venus’s transit through the work sphere of your chart. The New Moon on the 4th of February motivates you to ask for a raise from work, even if you have to negotiate! Valentine’s Day brings growth to the financial sector of your chart, encouraging you to grow your career and bank account. The Full Moon on the 19th will implement you as the leader of your coworkers, due to your new found professional and financial status. 

Taurus 
This month is your break from financial stresses. The main focus for you, dear Bull is work. With the New Moon activating the professional sector of your chart, you are on your way to creating a new vision for the public—perhaps even getting your hustle on to ensure financial success in an on going project. One thing is certain, you will be moving mountains professionally and creating buzz around your successes. The Full Moon on the 19th lifts your spirit, giving you the desire to restructure your endeavors, even if that means taking a salary cut. 

Gemini 
With Jupiter galvanizing through your house of partnerships, you may decide under the New Moon February 4th to take a step back and focus your energies on healing relationships. This rings true on the 19th, when the Full Moon makes you reassess your professional goals. Work may be going strong, but your personal life has taken the biggest hit of all. No matter how hot and heavy things may get in your personal relationships, don’t ignore your financial issues and max out your credit cards, as the 3rd can illuminate such matters. 

Cancer 
February brings major financial changes your way, due to the New Moon occurring February 4th. It’s a great time to organize standing financial issues by consolidating debt and paying back those you owe money to. Starting a new financial plan at the beginning of the month will prove beneficial, especially on the 3rd—as the 18th, 22, and 29th may bring financial stresses your way, mostly from business ventures (ie: entertaining clients and materials for projects). Create a budget and stick with your goals throughout the month in order to ensure financial success. 

Leo 
Mid month you will feel the urge to assert your creativity and spend your money on such endeavors, particularly on the 14th and the 19th. Be careful of overspending on frivolous resources for projects. Also, on evenings out with friends. Your finances may combust by end of the month, forcing you to budget during the Full Moon on the 19th. The 22nd gives work a boost, however, also makes you feel very limited around money. The 26th makes you take cautionary steps to ensure your financial slump remains a thing of the past. 

Virgo 
The past month forced you to worry about financial matters. However, this month you are less inclined to focus on money and work. While money will still be on your mind on the 7th and 9th—it won’t be until after the 13th when you end your financial worries. The 13th brings unexpected ups and downs in the financial department, causing frustrations to surface mostly due to you purchasing goods out of your budget. This may even result in you returning your purchases soon after on the 18th. The objective of February is to bring you out of the red and into the green, with the right resourcing and planning this is all possible. 

Libra 
Work is on a high for you, Libra. You are now the most popular kid on the block. Your employers will take notice of your hard efforts, even offering you a raise on the 14th. Watch out for tensions to rise in the office on the 9th and 19th, as professional jealousy from coworkers will force you to build other influential office buddies, who won’t be envious of your successes. Remember, you don’t have to feel guilty of your career advancement or promotion. You earned it all. You shouldn’t allow your success and the jealousy of others to stand in the way of your happiness. 

Scorpio 
The New Moon on the 4th forces you to change your personal goals, allowing you to see a life beyond work. Your priorities are shifting this month, which will serve you to focus on building your bank account without compromising your ethics on the 7th. The Full Moon occurring on the 19th brings a lucrative opportunity your way, which will elevate your status—long as you stay true to your personal beliefs. Don’t compromise your values! February ends on a high note, bringing earthly success your way on the 23rd. 

Sagittarius 
2019 is a very stressful financial year for you, dear Archer. The 9th allows you to take a risk and place a big financial bet. While you may be used to waging your money against the house, this time you will be extra stressed, as you are taking a loan from a backer to place your bets. Whether you win or lose, you won’t be ahead in the game. The 13th encourages you to take one more gamble to improve your circumstances. However, the 18th leaves you financially dry, due to your backers demanding their funding plus interest, ending your credit on the 19th. 

Capricorn 
The New Moon on February 4th aims set a new financial standard for you, which will benefit you all month, Capricorn. Your disposable income may have taken a hit, however, you have the chance to rebuild your bank account all month long. A new project on the 9th brings major change around your finances, boosting them up and helping you achieve financial nirvana by the Full Moon on the 19th. Don’t give up on your goals this month, with the right incentive and motivation you can save your pennies, allowing your bank account to reach new heights. 

Aquarius 
The Full Moon on February 19th is the financial event of the year for you, Aquarius. With the Full Moon occurring in both financial sectors of your chart, you will have to reassess the way you spend money—particularly the charges on your credit card. While you may be drawn to spending money on holistic health and occult products, you may have to slow down your overspending. The credit card bill you receive in the mail will exceed your expectations. Use the Full Moon to navigate through your spending, even implementing a payment plan with your credit card company. 

Pisces 
February is the last month you will feel uncertain about personal finances, as Uranus is ending its 7 year journey through the financial sector of your chart March 6th. However, there are some lessons to learn before the planetary switch. You will have to learn to stay within a budget on the 9th, 13th, and 18th. Work will be running smooth all month, especially on the 11th, when your boss gives you special attention for your hard efforts—most of which you did not see coming. Embrace the glory, Pisces!

January Money ‘Scopes

Aries
January serves as your professional wake up call, as the Sun and Saturn align in the career sector of your chart on January 2nd, implementing a new dream around work. Money matters seem to resolve smoothly on the 3rd and 4th, due to a Grand Water Trine between Venus, the North Node of Destiny, and the asteroid Chiron which will all serve to heal recent financial missteps. The solar eclipse January 5th aims to push your professional life in high gear, however, you may fall victim to personal setbacks, as Neptune is activating your innermost fears to hold you back from achieving your goals. Don’t let your insecurities get in the way of your success on January 8th. You’ve worked hard enough and deserve to prosper this month. January 20th brings inspiration and hope your way, through the support of your colleagues. Also, watch out for news regarding promotion or raise during the lunar eclipse occurring January 21st.

Taurus
With your planetary ruler, Venus, aspecting the house of debt in your chart on January 7th, you will have the next month to figure out your finances. Starting off the new year with a fresh perspective on money will allow your bank account to sore throughout 2019. The solar eclipse January 5th aims to teach you lessons around your spend fast tendencies, pushing you to be more thrifty than you care to be, luxurious Taurus. January 20th elevates your professional status, which leads you to rethink the direction of your career under the lunar eclipse January 21st. January 31st helps you use your connections to your advantage in strategizing your next professional steps—use your contacts wisely!

Gemini
January is a catalyst for you to rethink your financial investments, or, who you invest time in. You kick off 2019 feeling more confused than ever regarding the state of your career. The solar eclipse January 5th pushes you to ask for a raise at work, as you have been putting in massive amounts of overtime. However, you may not receive the payment you had wished for, causing you to second guess your career (especially when your planetary ruler, Mercury, enters the house of joint finances). With the Sun, Saturn, and Mercury lighting up your house of OPM (other peoples money), you feel stuck in more financial limbo during the solar eclipse as bills pile up and your raise is minimal. To further your frustrations, Jupiter and Neptune square off January 13th, which will impact your career, making you rethink your purpose on the 31st. Although circumstances may feel bleak this month, try to persevere through the storm, as February brings a lighter energy your way.

Cancer
A new business partnership is headed your way January 2nd, leading you into the solar eclipse January 5th feeling strong and perilous. The lunar eclipse January 21st brings a financial payback your way, allowing you to sit back and relax. However, the last days of January serve as your financial wake up call to start saving your pennies and stop spending frivolously. A get rich quick scheme or a financial idea from your new partner could leave you feeling like a crab in hot water on January 31st, if you don’t question the circumstances of the investment and do your due diligence in investigating the project.

Leo
The solar eclipse January 5th brings up issues and resentments you’ve had with colleagues. However, you have the opportunity to press the reset button and start anew under the solar eclipse, allowing you to make amends with your coworkers as you move into the new year. January 13th brings a creative opportunity your way. The project may not yield a high salary, but, will give you a chance to put your artistic juices to work. The flip side of this transit, is that you may be over indulging in post New Year’s celebrations, causing financial setbacks to occur, as your credit card is bogged down with frivolous charges. The lunar eclipse January 21st helps you get your head back in focus, as the Moon connects with your Sun, starting your monthly personal New Moon which will lead you into personal growth and professional development.

Virgo
January will make your head spin, Virgo! Especially around financial and professional matters. With your head recently lost in love, you have let your business go and you are now feeling the financial pinch of the matter. Uranus reawakens the house of debt in your chart, firing up your emotions as you see all the bills piling up and your bank account dwindling. Uranus has been moving backwards for the past five months, asking you to reassess your financials since August 7th. With its forward moment on the 6th, you will feel the sting of not planning your finances carefully, causing you to make hasty decisions mid month. January 13th will bring a professional opportunity your way, however, it may not align with your personal values, causing inner turmoil within you. Deciding whether or not to compromise your beliefs will be the focal point of the second half of the month until January 31st, when you decide to abandon the project to protect your ideals.

Libra
Work has been intense for you these past few months, causing your batteries to feel depleted and in need of a recharge. Venus, the North Node of Destiny, and the asteroid Chiron may bring personal and financial success on the 3rd and 4th. However, the solar eclipse on January 5th exhausts you, making you want to retreat from work momentarily. January 6th brings issues regarding work relationships, furthering professional boundaries that are pushed to the max January 8th. The lunar eclipse January 21st brings new career opportunities your way, as long as you have the energy to get out of the house in network. If not, use LinkedIn to your advantage and rub virtual elbows with those who can help advance your career.

Scorpio
2019 is a powerful year for you, Scorpio. You are finally getting the recognition you deserve, as well as the paycheck. The solar eclipse January 5th aims to cement your goals for the year, allowing you to start a whole new chapter in your professional career in publishing and spiritual pursuits. January 13th brings a unique project your way, which will definitely intrigue you. However, don’t sign off on the concept right away, as Neptune has some tricks up its sleeve, which may cause a financial windfall for you. Known to be a powerful financier, after all you are the sign of “sex, death, and taxes,” you may fall victim to a financial scheme on the 13th. Read the fine lines of the document and details of the project before committing, as you may find there are flaws, or, even deception in the contract. The lunar eclipse January 21st brings you a  new job title. Enjoy your newly professional status, after all, you’ve earned it!

Sagittarius
Your finances will be taken on a roller coaster throughout January. January 2nd brings a financial loss, due to restrictive Saturn limiting your cash flow. This is heightened during the solar eclipse January 5th when your wallet may feel emptier than ever. A friend may offer assistance during the eclipse. If you decide to take the loan, be clear with the details. Let your friend know how and when you can pay them back. If you are not clear, January 13th can cause more issues than expected around your relationships and money. The solar eclipse January 21st gives you the chance to rethink your finances, with help of an advisor. Take the advice they offer and stick to a budget—this will only serve to help improve your finances.

Capricorn
January is your month for success, dear sea-goat. With your solar return bringing you lessons from your yearly orbit around the Sun, plus Saturn and Mercury aligning with your Sun, you are unstoppable now. Committing to the next dream is essential January 2nd and the 4th. Venus is harmoniously aspecting the North Node of Destiny, who is galvanizing through your house of partnerships, and healing asteroid Chiron, allowing you to put your smooth talking skills to work and collaborate with others on the 3rd and the 4th of January. This empowering energy brings you into the eclipse January 5th feeling stronger than ever, giving you the motivation to transform your world on the 6th, as your old hopes and wishes are reignited by the fortuitous luminary. January 8th brings frustrations around the next big professional step, as you are too eager to rush through projects without understanding what they entail. A big paycheck comes your way on the 20th, bringing you into the lunar eclipse January 21st with gold filling your bank account and an advance payment on your dreams.

Aquarius
January 3rd and 4th bring hopeful news of an impending promotion your way. However, be prepared to fight with your colleagues over the position during the solar eclipse January 5th. January 13th is a powerful day for you, Aquarius. As Jupiter and Neptune square off, you may feel professionally and monetarily stunted, as your bank account will dwindle, causing you alarm. While your loving cup may feel tipped and empty during this time, you will be once again hopeful on the 20th, when you start your solar return. The light will once again shine on you, promising you a lucrative year ahead. The lunar eclipse on the 21st brings a professional partnership to light, making you rethink your commitments to joint ventures. Finally, January 31st makes you more lustful over money—be sure to make secure investments before you cartwheel through your bank account.

Pisces
January is a bit of a mixed energy. The solar eclipse January 5th align you with powerful colleagues, who will help advance your career. The caveat falls within you, dear sea dweller, as you are unsure if you are suited for this career path. You are having a professional existential crisis of sorts on January 13th, which will lead you to question your goals. You may feel as though you have worked so hard on your path and you have hit a brick wall, or, as though there is no advancement in your career. Regardless, you are now motivated to seek out new opportunities and professional directions, which will lead you down the path of success on the 31st.

Money ‘Scopes by Darla Downing

Aries
Payback is sweet, especially when it comes all at once. Yes, beautiful ram, karma comes full circle this month, with you getting the respect and appreciation you deserve. Expect others to pay back loans they owe you on December 1st and 2nd. By your peers clearing their debt, you will be stress free, and able to buy the best gifts for your flock. A work project ends on the 22nd, which will spin you into seasonal happiness, as you can take time off for the holidays. Mars connects with your Sun on December 31st, giving you the motivation to seek more fame and wealth in 2019. That’s right, Aries, you kick off the New Year with a bang, taking no prisoners to achieve your goals. Just be sure to take the last week of December off from work, so you can move into the New Year with determination and gusto.
Taurus 
December 7th pushes your credit cards to the max, as your holiday spending habits this year are at a high. However, don’t fret, money from a past investment is coming your way on the 15th. The Full Moon on the 22nd allows you to rethink your work plan for 2019, even forcing you to take much needed time off to spend with your family. New Years Eve may cause you to be reflective in the upcoming year, as you try to find your niche in the world amongst all the other Bulls.
Gemini
You’ve worked super hard all year to achieve your professional goals. However, December asks you if the sacrifices you made in 2018 were worth the professional acclaim you are experiencing now. The New Moon on December 7th and Mercury’s forward movement on the 6th, give you a chance to rethink your career path. The 15th heightens your confusion, while the Winter Solstice on December 21st and the Full Moon December 22nd end an existing partnership at work.
Cancer 
The New Moon on the 7th allows you to reconnect with colleagues, as you all have fun rocking around the Christmas tree at your office holiday bash. The Full Moon on the 22nd puts the focus on you, as you are the Crab of the hour at work, which will give you the drive to get your hustle on in the New Year, as action planet Mars moves into your professional sphere on December 31st, giving you the chance to up your game at work in 2019.
Leo 
December isn’t a particularly bad month for you, sweet lion. However, it does lead you down several confusing paths, which may force you to abruptly walk away from  creative projects. The New Moon on the 7th brings a lucrative venture your way. Beware, this project is not what it seems. Being paid on time will result from the partnership, adding frustrations down the road. The 12th heightens your hesitations about the project, forcing you to choose another venture to dedicate your time to. Listen to your intuition, if it doesn’t feel like the right fit—let the gig go. There will be more opportunities for you down the road which will be a better fit.
Virgo 
Business may have been slow this past month, forcing you to assert your thrifty nature, in order to save some cash. With your planetary ruler, Mercury, turning direct from its endless retrograde journey, on the 6th, you can expect a momentary reprieve around work and money. The 15th brings old clients back for good, as Uranus (who is moving backwards through its retrograde motion) and Neptune bring unexpected success your way, lasting into the New Year.
Libra 
Finally, after months of financial ups and down, December brings an end to the financial roller coaster. The 1st and 2nd bring a boost to your bank account, as others are noticing your hard work. The Winter Solstice, occurring December 21st, brings new work your way—however, not without frustrations during the Full Moon on the 22nd. Use the end of December to balance out your priorities and not overwork yourself, as it may cause frustrations around the holidays.
Scorpio 
It’s been a wild ride for you fall, as work and money have been inconsistent. 2018 surely had its windfalls and highs. The end of 2018 brings success your way. With Mercury, who is moonwalking back onto your Sun on December 1st, and Venus aligning with your Sun on December 2nd, you have the chance to have a financial reboot.

Money ‘Scopes by Darla Downing

 

Aries
The New Moon November 7th is a favorable time to consolidate loans or start a new financial plan, as you are able to clear long standing debts under this luminary. Be sure to weigh all options before signing onto a new plan, as Mercury Retrograde, which starts on the 16th, will leave you wondering if you made the right financial decision. Uranus will also move out of the financial sector of your chart on the 6th, which will add much needed stability to your finances.

Taurus
As Jupiter glides into Sagittarius on the 8th, you may be forced to get real about your finances. Spending freely has added some wonderful garments to your closet, but, depleted your bank account and maxed out your credit cards, forcing you to feel the strain on November 16th. When Mercury starts gliding backwards on the 16th, you may start to panic due to your lack of funds. However, as the Sun shifts into Sagittarius on November 22nd, you will have ample time to get your finances in check.

Gemini
The Nodes of Destiny enter the financial sector of your chart on the 6th, placing an emphasis on your spending habits. Cutting back or even coupon clipping may feel foreign to you, however, it will help you save your pennies, thus, yielding more money in your bank account.  November 16th brings work matters to a head, as drama with coworkers takes center stage. Try to stay out of the office politics, as arguments may consume your workplace for the next several weeks.

Cancer
Uranus will bring unexpected highs or lows to the career sector of your chart on the 6th. Try to stay on the cutting edge at work and promote extraordinary, transformative ideas or projects to your boss. Not only will this elevate your status in the office, but, it will also allow your superiors to view you as a pioneer. Just be careful not to step on anyone’s toes, as your colleagues may experience professional jealousy over you on the 16th, when Mercury starts gliding backwards in its retrograde motion.

Leo
Neptune has been swimming backwards for months, forcing you to take a closer look at your debt issues. When Neptune stops it’s backstroke on the 24th, you have the ability to gain insight into the proper steps you need to take in order to heal your debt. This may take some time to figure out, especially, since the Sun and Jupiter are urging you spend frivolously this month. Take your time, keep your eyes open and be aware of your spending this month, in order to keep the current issue under control.

Virgo
Venus’s backwards journey is now hitting your finances hard, forcing you to revisit financial missteps from September. Retrogrades are a great time to revise and reorganize financial matters. Think of this as your time to redo past spending faux pas—even hitting the rewind button or returning purchases bought then. The Nodal shift on the 6th allows you to finally gain recognition amongst your peers, while the Full Moon on the 23rd illuminates a new path or opportunity for you to take at work, which will elevate your position.

Libra
Both Venus and Uranus Retrograde have reeked havoc on your chart—particularly your finances since September (when Venus entered its pre retrograde shadow). November serves to give you relief from the financial lulls and stresses you have been under for the past few months. As the Nodes of Destiny switch signs on the 6th, your career gets a sudden bump. Try not to overextend yourself—balance out your work and personal time to create an equilibrium, allowing you to steadily increase your workout, not a burnout from taking on too many projects at once.

Scorpio
The 6th may ignite the flame with your colleagues, sparking past issues and rivalries to engulf the office. While the bright flames may intrigue you, step away from the from the spectacle, as it will burn you the most if you engage. November 8th brings an abundance of wealth your way, heightening on November 22nd when the Sun highlights the financial sector of your chart, allowing you to treat yourself to fanciful treats and gifts—after all, you’ve earned it!

Sagittarius
The Nodes of Destiny enter the house of other people’s money and property (OPM and OPP) on the 6th, lending insight into your relationship with money—particularly overspending. It’s time to make a plan to payback loans, debts, and manage your finances with care, which unfortunately means no more reckless spending! Penny pinching may be challenging at first, however, your fiery optimism and can do attitude will help you overcome any obstacle at hand.

Capricorn
Venus Retrograde will change your career—for the better! Venus, who glided back into the career sector of your chart on Halloween, has given you a chance during its backspin to change your work situations and goals. Think about your endgame, see what you can change in your career and with the relationship you have with your boss. This will help you achieve your goals swiftly.

Aquarius
Jupiter’s ingress into Sagittarius on November 8th will bring endless possibilities to your loving cup. Yes, dear Aquarius, the next year will be extremely fortunate to your networking skills, even bringing hopes of a new job or promotion. Also, expect to have more clarity on finances as illusive planet Neptune, stops playing tricks on your finances on the 24th, by turning direct. Financial affairs may be a little cloudy still, but, you will be able to keep your head above water by the end of November.

Pisces
As your planetary ruler enters the dignified sign of Sagittarius on the 8th, you will experience a surge in status. Luck runs high through the career sector of your chart, granting success and even a promotion. Don’t overthink your luck on the 16th—jump into the ocean and embrace all the gifts and fame the universe has bestowed upon you.

I spent a really long time avoiding working with the dead. Even though I was out of the broom closet in my 20’s, I wasn’t ready for such intense work. I was also already 30 by the time a close relative passed away, so death just hadn’t touched my life yet. But from that point it hasn’t slowed down.

 

I’ve lost so many people to addiction, Cancer and suicide that I’ve lost count. Once death started happening, and my loved ones still felt close by, to the point of appearing in dreams and visions, I realized it was the missing puzzle piece to my magical practice. I set up a simple altar and they were front and center from that moment, ever present and ready to guide in the right direction.

 

This magic has brought me to such an incredibly healing place, as well as to straight up slap in the face reality checks.

 

At 9 years old, I died on the operating table. My appendix burst while they were doing surgery. My childhood was plagued with stomach aches. This particular one was worse than usual and landed me in the hospital. After the operation, I was held there for 3 weeks, with a needle in some vein or another the entire time, eating every Italian Ice in the place, and driving the staff insane. I look back and see this incident as to what led me here, all these years later, working with the dead and my ancestors and preparing to be an end of life doula. The dead, at least my dead, don’t fuck around when they want me to learn a lesson.

 

As I approach the one year anniversary of my fathers death next month, which has shook the very foundation of who I am, I thank him, all my blood dead as well as all of those that have passed in my magical lineage, for their constant guidance and love, and for always having my back.

 

The best part of this practice is that it is relatively easy to reach the dead in your bloodline, even if you’ve never met. An easy set up to start with is a white candle, a glass of water, photos ( only of deceased people ) and an offering of some kind. If you know their tastes in food, alcohol, etc. you can leave those as well.

 

For example, my grandfather loved red licorice, so I always buy him Twizzlers. My grandmother lived on chocolate and lipton tea, so I always make sure those things are there, too. Choose one day a week to sit in front of your altar, light the candle, put out the offerings and just be still. Tell them your troubles and ask for guidance. Sit and just listen. If you have trouble making a connection, persevere, and over time things will start to happen.

 

Beginning a meditative practice will be of great assistance to help you quiet your mind so that you can hear what they’re trying to communicate to you. I’m truly stunned at all the distant relatives (and when I mean distant, I mean 500 years ago) that have made their presence known. And once that connection is made, you have a constant feeling of someone having your back and guiding you to a better life. I invite you to celebrate your beloved dead during the thinnest of veils between worlds, Samhain, and make magic that will change your life.

Santeria, also known as Lucumi or La Regla de Ocha is an initiatory religion with origins in West Africa, that was brought to Cuba, Brazil and other regions of the Caribbean during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Centered around deities known as Orishas, that were often syncretized with Catholic Saints in order to preserve the practice in secret.

I am a Priestess of Yemaya in the Lucumi Tradition, more commonly known as a “Santera”. When you come into my home it looks mostly like everyone else’s. You won’t find huge altars full of statues and candles, or chicken feet hanging from the ceiling. In fact my home looks pretty ordinary besides my penchant for crystals, apothecary jars, and the spaces reserved for my Ancestors and other practices which are usually kept out of sight.

You wouldn’t know what I practice unless I specifically told you, or if you too were a practitioner and able to read the subtle signs. A certain charm on my necklace that is only prescribed during ordination as a priest or the bracelets I always wear that match with none of my outfits.  My close friends know that certain foods are taboo for me.  I also try to avoid getting wet in the rain – also a taboo for me.  Sounds strange, but becoming deathly ill twice after getting caught in the rain makes you realize that your Abuela is sometimes right!  My point is that the Lucumi religion is a highly personalized practice that is fitted to the individual. What is medicine for one person can be poison for another.  

According to the lore of this practice, which is purely oral tradition, we are all born with our ORI.  In new age terms, this is our higher self. This higher self is connected to our life’s path and comes with an innate knowledge of certain things.  It has its own power, or ASHE. Although we have free will to make our way through life, it is our ORI that repeatedly nudges us in the direction of our best life, whether this is through people that we meet, or a seemingly random chain of events.  These moments and people change the entire course of our lives, as it did mine.

I was born into a family that suffers from Bipolar disorder, Depression, and Schizophrenia. Unfortunately, some of my family members committed suicide.  My mother attempted suicide when I was just two years old. She had gone off her medication during pregnancy in order to carry me at great risk to herself.  As we know, postpartum depression is very serious. It is even more so for people already living with mental illness. Miraculously, she survived what should have been a fatal injury.  Still, she was hospitalized with a fractured spine. For the next three years, she would relearn how to walk and perform basic motor functions. During this time, I was cared for by my grandmother.  Abuela was a priestess of Vodou, as practiced in the Dominican Republic. She was also a nurse at an elderly care facility. Every day, I would watch her pray, work, and help the streams of people that came for her assistance.  She would sit me at her altar – in this case and practice, there were many statues and candles – and taught me how to pray.  I prayed every night for my mother to come back to me as she was, although I was warned repeatedly that she may never walk again.  Against all odds and prognoses, she made a full recovery. Though I went back to my normal life, I never forgot my introduction to this world.  My innocent prayers were heard by these mysteries, as they were called.

Fast forward to my early 20’s.  After years of solitary practice, I found a pagan path where I was exploring traditional witchcraft and being offered initiation.  Coincidentally, I was presented with an opportunity to read tarot in a famous New York botanica (Nudge.) At this time, I had absolutely zero interest in the religions of my culture.  Yet, I was suddenly immersed head first into this world. Instead of crystals, pretty talismans, and perfume oils, I was surrounded by Catholic statues, camphor, cigars, Florida Water, and images of the Orisha.  

 A close friend and colleague had been seeing someone whom she called “Her Padrino.”  She was super secretive about her interactions with this person, which I found rather creepy. Sometimes, she would show up to work dressed completely in white and be eerily silent most of the day.  She was my polar opposite, as I was wearing all black and blasting My Chemical Romance each morning. I was the one that customers would gravitate to for hexing and separation work. Looking back, I realize that I was ANGRY with a lot of things in my life and that this was a perfect outlet at the time.  Though my tireless work was effective, my aura was dark.

 A particularly cool shipment of statues came in one day, and my High Priestess presented me with an extravagant gift, a large statue of the Orisha Yemaya. She was a brown skinned, bare breasted mermaid with a pink tail, a jeweled crown on her head and holding a silver star in her hands (Nudge). This was odd as I was being trained in Initiatory Wicca, which has absolutely nothing to do with Orisha practice, or other African Diasporic religions. (This is the realm of usually ill-informed eclectic witches and a whole separate topic). She said simply, “You should have this. This is you.” I laughed, thanked her and accepted the gift, as alien as it was. Truthfully, this lovely statue stayed in her padded foam box for several years as I had no idea what to do with her.

Around the same time my colleague and fellow Bruja invited me to a drumming. An Orisha drumming is not anything like a pagan drum circle. It is normally reserved for initiates or for members of an Ile, a temple or house of Orisha. I don’t know how this even happened, but I went to the event.I could hear the drums before I even entered and they immediately gave me a faint queasy feeling, like butterflies in my chest. When we entered the large room, the air was surprisingly thick and humid. To the left was a huge altar called a Throne. It was adorned with fabric, fruits, sweets and other items gleaming in shades of gold and pink. Three drums were set up in the front of this room.  As the drums were played, my friend and I stayed plastered to the back wall hoping that no one would ask us who invited us, or why we were there, as the girl who had extended the invite in the first place was a no show.

I watched the people dance, their methodical steps giving way to abandon and wild movements at times that frightened me. A woman danced alone in front of the drums, her clothes plastered with sweat and her face beet red. After a time she was ushered away, only to return with a glistening blue and silver shawl around her neck, her hair wrapped up in another lovely fabric, and several younger people escorting her where she wanted to go, as she seemed to move through the room like a butterfly, speaking to some and ignoring others. I could see the people present crying and I did not understand why.

I honestly felt a pang of panic at this time and I wanted to leave. When I told my friend this, she flatly said that it was too late to leave. Once an Orisha had joined the event, possessing an initiate, it would be considered extremely rude to walk out the door, and there was no way of doing it sneakily as they (the Orishas) were capable of seeing and hearing everything in the room at once, including our thoughts. Now I was truly shitting myself and broke out in a cold sweat, when this woman immediately made eye contact with me and walked straight in my direction. At first I returned her gaze, but the closer she drew, the more unsettling it became and I shifted my eyes down towards my feet.

She came right up to me and grabbed my chin upwards. At this moment I was being yelled at by my friend who was trying to show me how to properly greet The Orisha, but I was frozen to the spot and her grip on my face was not soft. As per the woman who appeared by her side to translate, this was the Orisha Yemaya who was speaking to me (Nudge).  She proceeded to speak about my mother’s accident (I had never shared this with anyone at that point in my life as I was too ashamed). She said that the spirits of my homeland had heard my prayers saving my mother and myself from living out that tragedy, but that I ultimately belonged to HER, and to all of them. I opened my mouth to ask how and my friend shook her head rapidly at me with bulging eyes. Instead I nodded and crossed my arms, bowing my head a little, as I had seen others do. She passed her beautiful embroidered cloth all over my body, and I felt the crackle of energy like electricity as all the hairs on my arms and head rose. Her last words to me were “Don’t worry, you will see.”  I did see.

 

Once an Orisha had joined the event, possessing an initiate, it would be considered extremely rude to walk out the door, and there was no way of doing it sneakily as they (the Orishas) were capable of seeing and hearing everything in the room at once, including our thoughts.”

 

The chain of events to follow were less like nudges and more like blows upside the head!  I chose to share this to show something that few share on Social Media. The magic of these Orisha goes way beyond spells and altars, and deep into ancestral healing and realignment with one’s destiny.  It’s an experiential religion that creates deep, personal growth and change for each person it touches. To those seeking the Orisha, I advise you to really SEEK them, so that you can have these life-changing and miraculous experiences for yourself.

I was recently moved to tears and brought to my knees in front of an Orisha, Babalu Aye (syncretized with Saint Lazarus, Patron of illness and disease) after hearing that a member of my Ile, an elder and sister to me within this practice, was now Cancer Free. This beautiful and humble Orisha not only alerted her to the unknown illness in her body but also CURED her, through his prescriptions and guidance of her elders, in a time span of only several weeks. These stories and experiences are the truth about this religion and practice. This is why practitioners spend so much time, blood, sweat and tears working ceremonies with our spiritual community as well as with seekers needing help and guidance. If your Orisha practice consists only of spells on an altar, or selfies of your beaded necklaces with cigar in mouth, then I am here to tell you that you are missing out on so much more.  There is a whole world out there, just waiting for you to dig a little deeper.

Yemaya N’Agbe O,
