You’ve been plugging along the path towards your desires at a slow but steady pace, sure. But in order to get to where you really want to be, its time to kick things into high gear. Organize your ambitions, make a plan, and take daily actions to make progress forward. If you’re feeling stuck where you are, then move! A shift is needed somewhere, be it location or perspective - it’s time to see things from another angle. Get to higher ground to see the bigger picture, that’s where the best plan of attack will be made.
Pisces: Seven of Pentacles
Oh Pisces, you sweet beautiful dreamer - your capacity to visualize your future with full fledged fantasy level clarity is unmatched, but this month calls for you to invest in yourself with cold, concrete cash. Trust your high level intuition, take a leap, and pony up the dough for something to further your future. Whether it’s new business cards or a change of location, your return on that investment in yourself will be tenfold. Trust that if it’s calling out to you it’s because it’s meant for you. The braver you are in taking this leap, the bigger your reward is on the other side.
Aries: Wheel of Fortune
There’s an upside to every down, able Aries. Just because things aren’t going exactly your way in one area of your life, doesn’t mean you aren’t blessed in others. Likewise, the things that seem perfect for now will have their downswing eventually so enjoy it while it lasts. The more you learn to appreciate taking the bad with the good, the easier weathering any storm will become. Trust that every up and down is part of your constant movement forward. Roll with the punches and you’ll find it’s so much more satisfying than feeling stuck in even the coziest of places. Just keep swimming.
