Sagittarius // The Emperor
Give yourself the opportunity to assess all the victories that you’ve established this year. The Emperor has many responsibilities because he dreams big and his ambitious are heavy. He does not fear taking on these responsibilities in exchange for a valuable empire he can call his own. What is your legacy and what are you willing to sacrifice for it? What commitments have you made to attain your personal goals and dreams? And what can you improve upon? Use your wisdom and sound judgment to bring success into 2018. Be mindful of what your personal formula for success is and what your toxic habits and patterns are, so you can stop these in their tracks. As with all things, creating a legacy will be a lifetime pursuit with gradual progression. You’re in it for the long haul, so there is no need to rush. It’s important to be patient, compassionate with your journey and to take notes from others along the way. The Emperor saves himself from making common mistakes by learning from those around him and taking mental notes. You may find yourself to be more comfortable with your power, your potential to unleash more creative work and manifest what you will. Honor your commitments and buckle down so that your discipline produces the magic that you seek in your life. Your masculine energy will be heightened and the desire to act is stronger than ever. Take advantage of this momentum and your drive, more than leading others, seek to lead and guide yourself appropriately. Themes relating to fatherhood and authority figures could pop up during this time, helping you to tap in deeper to that energy of protecting and fighting for what is yours.
Capricorn // 2 of Swords
Are you looking at the full picture with honesty and a clear lens on how you’ve participated in the equation? The 2 of Swords shows that you may be exhibiting avoidance tendencies, which can make matters worse. Be accountable for your actions but also be willing to observe the full story without judgment or criticism. Important decisions will be made, try not to prolong them due to fear of change or resistance. A shift is inevitable but you will only make things harder on yourself by ignoring that fact. You still have time to tend to your wounds before the New Year; in fact, you want to seek closure so that you don’t bring that energy with you into the New Year. Something may still be causing you pain or has you wanting to look in the other direction due to its intensity. There’s no better way to get over it but to rip off the bandage and see what you’re dealing with face-on. The heart is blocked in this matter and you may find yourself reacting more emotionally to things than normal. If you can remove emotion from this equation then things will be a bit easier for you. Your goal this month is to gain clarity on where you hold power and how you give it away. Empower yourself to take action exactly when you need to, not to procrastinate until the last minute. This will save you from many headaches and troubles down the road. Carry the intention of becoming more solution oriented than focusing on any problems. Taking action on anything, even in the smallest of ways, is better than being inactive and ignorant to your own creations.
Aquarius // The Emperor
Life might get a little real for you this month; the Emperor takes on an abundance of responsibility, all in the name of his passion and his vision. Before stepping into 2018, take the time to marinate on all the creations and manifestations you’ve successfully executed this year. What are the most valuable lessons that you need to take with you? Which areas do you need improvement on and what qualities within must you bring out more in order to thrive? The Emperor is only interested in thriving, and in doing so for the long run. You cannot afford lower vibration nor petty energy to bring your conquest and momentum down. Residing in that energy would be a waste of time and energy, however, you must be certain that you can recognize such vibes from a mile awhile – be that from yourself and from others. It is time to focus on bigger and more fearsome dreams, the kind of dreams that get you excited upon waking yet leave a bit of anxiety within you because of their massive scale. The Emperor dedicates his life toward the greatness he sees within him and towards helping his people; most see power but it is truly life of servitude and established order. Order within yourself will create the success and longevity that you seek; it might also be a lonely ride because there won’t be too many others pursuing what you seek and in the same caliber as you. Meditate on your sacrifices because they’re about to increase. Is it worth it? If not, you might want to reassess your goals and dreams. Discipline, commitment and consistency is the Emperor’s formula to establishing a successful legacy. All is within reach if you are driven enough to do so. Execute your authoritative power by controlling yourself first.
Pisces // 5 of Cups
You are so close from finding closure on an troubling aspect of your past; don’t beat yourself up for experiencing what you had to, in order to grow. It is time to embrace where you currently stand and the trials and tribulations of 2017. Where you are traveling to, will be much more gratifying and pleasurable; however, you will have to believe you are worthy of it. Waste no time feeling sorry for yourself and instead embrace the fact that you have done your best with what you are. Leave the hardships in 2017, where they have served to build your character, strengthen your spirit and get you further grounded in the present. The lesson here is to reside in your blessings, keep consistent with your gratitude and always seek for a solution. A solution is always present, if you choose not to victimize yourself or the situation at hand. The 5 of Cups can represent toxic and draining energy, holding you back from your potential. Reflect on the times that you have succumb to these vibrations and how you were effected as a result. Make a vow to stop these energies and to leave them in 2017, where they now represent the past, not a continuing pattern. Everything has its pros and cons, perhaps its time to look at both sides of the coin before sticking solely to the negative or the positive for that matter. Keep a well-rounded perspective so that you don’t limit yourself where you’re at. Make peace with your emotional burdens now so that you don’t carry them with you into 2018. Consider cleansing yourself with a spiritual bath, writing down things you desire to let go on a piece of paper and burning it and prepping your house by making space for the blessings to come.
Aries // The Moon
The Moon holds the power to play with our emotions, revealing energies that we have yet to fully confront within ourselves. It is also the teller of secrets, shining light on the hidden and secluded. It is a powerful time for you, as you venture into a new cycle in your life that is either revealing your new potential and identity or aiding you to shed some toxic layers you didn’t realize were still remaining. The Moon’s influence can still bring up things from our past, be that emotions, people, situations, habits or environments that we need to revisit for our healing and closure. What can make this a challenging time is your refusal to separate fact from emotion, or the choice to indulge heavily in activities that are not for your highest good. Whatever the Moon decides to present to you, it is for your best benefit; what you resist, persists – this is your opportunity to transcend challenges and hardships that hold you back from your potential. Along with the power to resurrect vibrations, the Moon also manages to amplify psychic ability and magic work. Keep track of your personal patterns: What comes up for you during the New Moon/Full Moon timing? What is your intuition picking up on and what do you have the urge to do during this time? Your sense of rationality and logical approach can be thrown off at this time, expect to be highly empathic and emotional in a deeper way. This can be beneficial to you, if you know how to channel it in creative and proactive ways but it can hinder you if you are dwelling on toxic emotions and resisting the message that they bring. Feel all the feelings but don’t get carried away, as the Moon has the potential to heighten an influence and manipulate our perspective. Not everything is what it seems, therefore it would serve you well to use your intuitive skills and engage in divination activities or discuss what is going on with someone who is unbiased and can give you a level-headed opinion.
Taurus // Justice
Everything is as it should be, the Justice delivers fair karma and brings with it the abundance of eye-opening lessons and truths for us to embody into the new year. The work you’ve been putting in these past years will now be delivered to you in the months to come. Justice has us considering various elements of our lives and whether they are in balance. What does it take for you to attain balance daily and for the long term view? Make sure that you have paid your debts and found closure with any open wounds that threaten to take your peace for 2018. Take charge in your life with your authenticity; it’s time to review your year and be raw about it, so you can assess where your truth lies and how you can act on it. Make a list of responsibilities attached to your passion and stick to them for the new year. Hold yourself accountable, Justice encourages us to be mature and handle our realities with a firm ground and stable heart. It’s time to be fully aware of what you’re involved in at the present moment: how did you actively participate in the karma that is being distributed to you now and what can you do to reverse the spell (if negative) or perpetuate it (if positive)? Elevate from a higher perspective and see how the dots are connected in your life, this will provide the insight you need to do what is right. You are where you need to be; if you don’t like where you currently stand then you must learn how you got there to change it. Make sure your perspective and mindset compliment the vision that you hold for yourself and prepare to teach yourself all about the law of cause and effect.
