Horoscopes: What do I need to know?

Elizabeth Kaiser graphic

Aries: March 21 – April 19
Three of Swords
Aries, this week it’s time for a reset. All the storm clouds are clearing and you’re getting what you’ve been fighting for. Your hard work is finally paying off. The heaviness in your chest will rise with the changing of seasons, so don’t give up faith. Everything is going to be just fine, and you will pull through. As the saying goes, “this too shall pass.”

Taurus: April 20 –May 20
Five of Coins
This card represents the need for love and gratification. Show your work to someone you love and get a second opinion. With midterms growing near, now is the time to outsource for help and motivation. Five of Coins also tells you that new romance could be near, or a new passion will flourish. Get excited! Great things are coming your way!

Gemini: May 21 – June 20
XVIII The Moon
Feeling sensitive this week? The Moon embodies a natural relaxing glow. Take advantage of this and do some selfcare. It’s okay to need to be alone! No one can judge you for feeling overwhelmed. Take a break from it all and wash your face, brush your teeth, turn on your favorite movie and just let yourself breathe. Yes, you need to study and make progress; but you also need to take breaks and make sure you are taking care of yourself too.

Cancer: June 21 – July 22
Queen of Cups
Don’t worry! This week you are not alone in feeling overwhelmed! The Queen of Cups is a woman who represents sensitivity and compassion. She is watching over you and guiding you through the day with a loving gaze. Do not be afraid to talk to people and ask for help when you need it. College is scary and so is making friends but imagine how much better you’ll feel when you’re surrounded by loved ones.

Leo: July 23 – August 22
Ace of Wands (Reversed)
As a Leo, it’s natural for you to be headstrong. But this week the cards advise you to take a step back. It’s easy to miss opportunities when you start pushing too hard. It’s okay to not be a leader, just listen. I know it’s hard to work in groups or go against your opinion but trust the cards when they say it’s time for change!

Virgo: August 23 – September 22
Six of Swords
You’ve debated long enough! It’s time to jump in and make a change. You’ve seen the big picture, now make a move. Little things aren’t meant to be planned out and dwelled on. Little things are here to make life interesting and give us something to create dreams and mistakes from. Decide who you want to be and start running! Make a change. Cut your hair, shave your face, paint your nails, who cares! You can do this. Now go make a difference!

Libra: September 23 – October 22
Two of Cups (reversed)
You’re investing too much time into a project and it’s time to let go. Find new interests to spend your energy on!.Obsessing over things that don’t matter anymore can make you want to pull your hair out but it’s okay! This will open the door for new opportunities!.Put on a smile and face the world with a different perspective! You can make a difference: all you have to do is try.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
The Empress
Trust in yourself! I cannot stress this enough. As a Scorpio, you are passionately curious about the world around you and it’s time to start trusting your gut. You tend to know how a situation is going to turn out before it happens, and you need to start leaning on your intuition. Don’t do things when you know the outcome is going to be against you, no matter what your friends say.

Sagittarius:November 22 – December 21
Five of Wands
What makes you tic? This week, the cards are asking you to look in on yourself and those around you. Pick and choose what is good for you or even who is good for you. Make new habits and get rid of the bad ones. You are strong and you don’t need anything holding you back from your true potential. You are brave. Never forget it. Try finding a new learning style or find a new way to study. It’s amazing how a little change can make a big difference.

Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
VIII Strength
Trust in your intuition. As a Capricorn, you are very logic based; you don’t like to see things as they could be or who it could have been. You like clear answers with clear solutions. Unfortunately, we can’t live like that. You’re putting too much stress on how things should be instead of letting your imagination run free. Let your creativity out and do something fun. Try creating a new coloring book page with colors that usually wouldn’t represent that object. That will get your creative juices flowing!

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
Ten of Wands (Reversed)
Look in on yourself. Lack of perspective is holding you from your true self. Look in on your most innocent self. What would they think of you? Make yourself proud and revisit your younger dreams and aspirations. You never know what dreams and ideas could re-awaken. You are a creative being by default. Break free of your perceived way of being and be true to yourself. Embrace your inner child and lighten up.

Pisces: February 19 – March 20
Three of Coins
New and exciting offers are coming your way! This is the perfect time to show the world your talents and individualities. You are just waiting to bloom and show the world what you are made of. Be proud of yourself! You’ve come so far! Use this feeling as a reminder that even through the hard times, it gets better. Put one foot in front of the other and go find new and awesome opportunities. You deserve it after all this hard work. Be brave and be you.
