Is your subconscious trying to tell you something?
Dreams can be very powerful sources of insight into yourself – once you learn their meanings. Many times we look at our dream as a whole when trying to decipher its message — but it’s also important to consider the meaning of anything you remember from the dream, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant.
While there are no concrete, universal translations for dreams and their meanings, taking a look at some of the common symbols seen in dreams and how you can interpret them, may help you find the useful message your subconscious is trying to help you with.
Dreams are empowering no matter how they show up. If you’re able to decode them, you can unlock a lot of your own potential and release a lot of negative thoughts that are holding you back from being a much happier person that can attract good things to you based on the law of attraction.
5 Most Common Dream Symbols
These are 5 of the most common symbols in dreams. Have you dreamed about any of these?
1. Dreams About/With Animals or Bugs
Seeing animals or bugs in a dream represents survival instinct and a connection to nature. If you’re dreaming of being chased by a predator, you may be holding onto repressed feelings like aggression or fear. Alternatively, you may be feeling “chased” by trouble of some kind… including negative thoughts or people in your environment whom you can’t seem to “escape.”
In order to unlock your power, look to see how the quality of the animal or bug either represents a fear you have or a strength that you could use more.
If fear is running your life, you will fear afraid of a snake in your dream. The feeling you get will reflect the way you feel about something in your life.
The symbol is there to help you see you don’t have to be stuck in fear. Snakes help you transform and shed your old skin to become a better version of yourself.
A dream about spiders will leave you with a creepy feeling but it is to let you know that you’re letting anxiety play out in your subconscious mind and it’s lowering your energy and scope of view of what is possible. If you find ways to relax, your horizons will expand and your creative insights will elevate.
The spider web reminds us we are all connected to life force energy and that our thoughts create our reality which is an empowering message.
Your strength is not being used to its full capacity if a horse shows up in your dreams. It reminds you that you are far more powerful than some people would let you believe.
Notice how other people are shaping your view of yourself if you see a horse in your dream, even if it someone from your past. This empowering symbol helps you find the ultimate freedom to run wild and free when you stop repressing your power.
2. Dreams About Your Body
Your body is often represented in your dreams through structures and vehicles.
Houses, boats, cars, RVs, buses, and planes (to name just a few) represent your body and what is housed within your consciousness.
You’ll notice that often you aren’t in your own dream because ultimately the whole dream is playing out parts of yourself. Notice where you are if you’re in a house and the condition it’s in and it can help you see where you need to pay attention to your health or how your emotions are linked to your health in certain parts of the body.
Dreams about teeth falling out are about fear of time passing and fear of not being able to fix problems of the past (since teeth don’t grow back).
Once you recognize that this could be that you need to deepen your spiritual life to connect to your soul and overcome the fear of death, the past or time won’t seem haunting and you’ll feel free to focus on creating a loving positive future. This empowering symbol often shows up when we are seeing life through the lens of the ego and prioritizing based on individualistic goals instead of spiritual ones.
The nature of hair is that it grows. Our own soul growth and spiritual growth often first comes to our mind on a subconscious level to alert us that we are living based on the identity that someone else has formed for us.
When we are finding an energetic separation from how others think we should live and who we want to be, hair dreams will help remind us we can be the person in our hearts regardless of opinions. That is a helpful loving message to dream about.
The function of ears is to listen. You may not be seeing how someone’s intention is really affecting your energy. You would be wise to really pay attention to who someone is based on their words and energy. You also could benefit from listening to wise words of advice or not talking arrogantly in conversations.
This symbol is a message from the subconscious and intuition that you need to be more observant and study your surroundings to heal and grow.
3. Dreams Involving Movement
Whether you are traveling, moving houses, falling, flying, or something else, if you remember movement, it is significant.
Notice how the movement makes you feel. Often moving or traveling has to do with feeling unsettled and still needing to recognize who you are and your soul purpose which will lead to ultimate happiness. Perhaps the other people represent thoughts you can let go of or behaviors you can release in order to finally feel stable.
This is usually about your own thoughts that are critical of yourself in a judgmental or comparative way.
Perhaps you don’t realize how seeing things through a negative perspective is attracting more negativity which makes you feel unlucky. It’s showing you that you’re chasing yourself and making yourself feel afraid but you don’t have to. Whoever taught you to live in fear doesn’t have to run your mind. Consider which perspectives really feel heavy and decide not to hold them anymore.
If you’re falling, you may be sabotaging your life by thinking negatively and you can start being more positive.
Change is often scary because of the unknown, but falling can actually be a part of an important transformation in our lives. We may need to surrender and stop trying to control everything so that something can manifest in our lives. Free falling is a message to surrender and raise your vibes by trusting the Universe. You may be afraid you will fail if you have this dream which is an empowering reminder that your control is just keeping your vibe up and trusting you’re always right where you need to be.
This means you’re stepping into your power by thinking positively and thus creating positive momentum in your life. It also can show up as a reminder that you have this ability which can get you to soar above your problems to see more than what is in front of you.
When this shows up it indicates to keep building that excitement that you get when you think of biggest dreams. That bliss feeling is what will help your ideas take flight because it has a high vibration and will attract the right thoughts and resources to you. This is a very positive and helpful dream symbol.

4. Nightmares or Feeling Fear
Many of our dreams are laced with a healthy dose of fear and just because you’ve done a lot of inner-work doesn’t mean you won’t have fear in your dreams. It helps you recognize that there are deeper layers in your mind that you can recognize which are holding you back. Perhaps your fear is keeping your guarded, keeping you from taking risks, or keeping you from dreaming your biggest dreams and really living the life you want.
When it shows up in your dream it’s helping you see that you don’t have to live with it. It’s a gentle reminder leading you to freedom.
A test is something that gives you a grade and is often about comparing yourself to others unnecessarily in your mind. Stop putting yourself down and for that matter stop building your self-worth around being better than someone else.
You also can interpret this as a reminder that when you use your time wisely and prepare, that anxiety won’t be necessary. It can be a helpful reminder not to procrastinate and not to let yourself value yourself based on accomplishments but on kindness.
This is a good thing to have in a dream as it represents letting go of a part of yourself you no longer need.
This can be a big part of yourself like a goal you’ve held for a long time or a belief that has dominated your consciousness for a long time. It is a reminder that you’re constantly able to recreate yourself and evolve.
Being naked in public
If you’re shameful of past experiences or of your body, the dream will show up to help you release that low vibe subconscious thought. Not loving our body or feeling guilty about our feelings can impede our creativity.
When you’re naked in public, it’s a reminder that you don’t have to worry about what other people think because it only poisons their mind if they think negatively and you can choose how you think of yourself.
5. Dreams About Love
Dreams about romance and intimate connections are common and they don’t mean you have feelings for the person in your dream believe it or not (although they can). They mean you have desires waiting to be explored that are trying to come to the surface.
Why not live the life you truly want right? In order to do that, we have to take a moment to listen to our deepest desires.
Dreaming of weddings, even if they are someone else’s doesn’t always mean you want to get married. It certainly can. What you need to pay attention to is if the wedding is going well or not.
Your subconscious may be telling you that you are more the domestic partnership person or need to recognize you need to make time for love and stop avoiding giving yourself what you want.
If you have a dream that you were with someone who you shouldn’t be, it’s not something to feel bad about. It may indicate that you don’t really feel good about the person you’re with. It may also indicate you need to be more honest with yourself about what you want in some area of life.
Don’t think that sex dreams are always about sex, often they are helping us allow ourselves to speak our truth and honor our personal needs whether that is how we are treated or how we spend our time. This can be about taking better care of yourself too which is again, an empowering nudge from the subconscious.
You may be dreaming a baby is on the way if you actually have to desire to procreate, but it could also mean you’ve been feeling vulnerable and want to be loved.
Sometimes babies in dreams also represent a fresh start or the desire to “birth” some new, creative project.
Pay Attention to Your Dreams!
Analyzing your dreams and their meanings is a fascinating way to examine your self from your subconscious mind’s perspective. If you have trouble remembering your dreams, keep a notepad on your nightstand and write down what you remember as soon as you wake up. Note any small details you can think of because it could mean something important!

All About Water Signs
Water signs are strongly affected by the Moon phases, because the Moon affects the water in our bodies. This means that their emotions can often be quite strong! They are often considered the most intuitive of the zodiac signs.
If they seem to talk about their emotions a lot, it’s because they are also picking up on the emotions around them, (and big sweeping psychological shifts happening from planetary movements) whether they know it or not.
- They will make you feel heard and seen
- They are very nurturing and known to be “bleeding hearts”
- They make great healers, nurses, and parents
- They are good listeners

You can count on a Water sign to help you when you’re having a rough day! Water signs will work hard to connect emotionally with you, so being open with them is a great way to build a strong relationship.

- Can get attached to people too quickly
- Sometimes dump their emotions on others
- Get obsessed with taking care of others, neglecting themselves

- They struggle with jealousy
- They like to spend lots of time with their partner
- They want to talk about feelings

What They Love

- Spiritual topics
If you want to show them you care, always opt for sentimental gifts or home-cooked meals. Putting your love into something for them will impress them more than a high price tag.

All About Air Signs
Air signs are often leaders in our society because their energy is very intellectually oriented. They also like to communicate, which makes them very social people. They tend to be rational and analytical, but can also handle abstract thinking.

Air signs are certainly interesting people that we can look to learn from as they are walking encyclopedias and store tons of information.
- Overly idealistic
- Can be self-critical
- Struggle with balance
Air signs can get so caught up with the idea of fixing something, that they forget to pace themselves. If you want to help them out, make sure they pause to eat and sleep, because they will work for a cause endlessly.

- Boring work
Air signs can get bored easily if their work becomes predicable. They have minds that never seem to slow down, and constantly need stimulation, or something to obsess over.

You can learn a lot about yourself by understanding your Chinese Zodiac sign. Whether it’s knowing what essential oils are best for you, or how to deal with others in the workplace based on their Chinese Zodiac sign, exploring this ancient branch of astrology is undoubtedly always a worthwhile cause!
In today’s modern era, stress is a part of life, especially right now.
This is not the way it should be. As we humans were not made to deal with endless stress, day in and day out. Our minds and bodies tend to let us know when stress is getting the better of us as we’ll experience physical issues, such as fatigue and headaches, and mental issues, such as anxiety and depression.
Many of us are undergoing more stress than usual because of the circumstances we find ourselves in. Anxiety about what will or will not happen is on the rise, so it’s more important than ever that we find effective ways to destress.
Luckily, today we’ve compiled ways to help you destress – based on your Chinese Zodiac sign!
Remember, everyone is their own unique individual, but you will often share similar characteristics with those who share the same sign as you. And just like in Western Astrology, there is an ascendant sign which also plays a strong role in your character. (So if your ascendant sign is a Rat, you too would benefit from the destressing technique just as a person born in the Year of the Rat would).
Don’t know your Chinese Zodiac sign? Click here to use our calculator.
As a Rat, your mind is sharp, acute and agile. As such, it’s often hard at work, whether it’s planning a grand scheme or trying to figure out the latest crossword puzzle.
Meditation is an extremely important technique for you because it stabilizes the mind. Guided meditation is particularly beneficial – this is because your mind can go a mile a minute at times, and it needs a little guidance to slow down.
When combined with essential oils such as clary sage and lavender, this is the perfect destress method for you to try.
Something pleasurable is best for you, Ox! You are a hard worker and it’s important for you to have wind-down time. One of the best ways for you to do this is to plan one day of the week (or even a few hours of the day) where you will indulge in things that make you feel good.
So get yourself some ingredients to prepare your favorite meal, plan for a show you’d like to watch, and put your feet up with a cup of hot cocoa. Pleasurable relaxation engages all your senses and prepares you for the coming day.
Yours is an intense sign, Tiger, and you have extraordinary energy. Pampering yourself is certainly the way to go when it comes to destressing. You need something that isn’t boring, but at the same time isn’t strenuous! It’s hard to find that balance sometimes.

As a gentle and pragmatic sign, you are someone who likes things to go in a straight and narrow line. You are willing to work long and hard, Rabbit, but sometimes you can neglect looking after your own needs!

As one of the most powerful signs of the zodiac, you are someone who has a great deal of strength and vision, Dragon. You may be filled with big plans and great endeavors that you want to manifest into reality.
Taking time to destress is best done when you focus on your physical body.
Exercises such as HIIT may be intense while doing them, but afterwards it puts you in a state of relaxation and stabilizes your mental and emotional energies. Likewise, running or jogging is good for you – and if you can’t do those, dancing in your room has a powerful and relaxing effect on you in the aftermath!
Beautifying yourself is a wonderful way to destress, Snake. You are a refined and wise individual with a love of aesthetic appeal. When it’s time to destress, it’s time to get pampering! A homemade facial, a DIY face mask, a self-massage – all of these can help you unwind and remove stressful feelings.
You also benefit from reading non-fiction books about topics of interest. You have a naturally philosophical nature and some light-hearted reading can both stimulate and relax you in equal measure!
As someone with high energy who is always looking for the next great adventure, you are one who benefits from destressing with another, Horse!
The best destressing technique for you is to have a hearty chat with someone close to you. This way, you can get everything off your chest and veer off into whatever wonderful world your imagination takes you.
Failing that, writing down your thoughts and feelings in a journal is a wonderful way to release stressful tensions.

Your Ideal Job: Understanding the Elements
One of the easiest ways to narrow down your ideal job is to take a look at your element.
There are four elements in astrology, each element representing three signs. In fact, if you take a look at the closest people in your life, there is a good chance that they share a ruling element with you.
For instance, Air signs – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius – tend to vibrate on the same level, enjoying communication and the sharing of ideas. Air signs are quick-witted, intelligent, and sometimes neurotic. And while this may not apply to every Air sign you’ve ever met, it tends to ring true.
Let’s take a look at each element and explore the ideal careers for you, based on your ruling element.
Fire: Aries, Leo & Sagittarius
Fire rules over Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Fire is an element that denotes creativity and passion, and these signs are often people who enjoy their time in the spotlight (Fire signs like attention). A Fire sign is most at home in a career or job where they can express themselves and be acknowledged for their hard work and creativity. It’s also helpful if they can have a bit of fun on the job.
Naturally social and warm, you should be able to get along with most of your colleagues, regardless of your career. You will thrive, however, in a creative environment that allows you to come up with new and inspiring ideas.
You are goal-oriented, and you make a great leader – so, leadership positions will help you feel more aligned with your nature. The biggest challenge you’ll have in any position is maintaining a calm demeanor, as you can have a short temper from time to time.
If you begin each day with balancing practices, like yoga and meditation, you’ll find it easier to maintain your composure throughout the day.
To read more about your specific Fire sign, see Career Tips For Fire Signs.
Earth: Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are the signs ruled by the responsible element, Earth.
Earth signs have a steady pace that allows them to work toward their goals with patience and determination. They are hard-working and practical, desiring routine and stability. Most Earth signs have a knack for making money, as they seem to naturally know what it takes to attract abundance and maintain it by saving and spending frugally.
Your down-to-earth nature is something that employers respect, and your tenacity will help you work from any position towards a role with more responsibility and higher pay.
Those you work with appreciate your analytical, reasonable approach to challenges or problems within the workplace. Your downfall may be a slight addiction to work. In fact, you’re probably what many would call a workaholic. As long as you can find a balance between work and play, you’ll be quite successful.

Water: Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces
Water is the element that rules over Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
These signs are naturally intuitive, emotionally sensitive, and creative. You tend to follow your heart rather than your head, especially when it comes to important matters. You connect to your intuition and do what feels right at the moment, rather than spending hours or days mulling over a certain decision. Your keen intuition is an asset for any career or company, and you should try to use this to your advantage.
One of the easiest ways for you to thrive in any working environment is by working on building your psychic shield.
It’s easy for you to absorb the moods and negativity of others, increasing your need for protection. Beginning each workday with chakra work and visual meditation will help you build a shield around your aura that will keep you safe from external toxins or negativity. If you learn to protect and stand up for yourself, you can be successful in nearly any field.
For more information about each Water sign and career paths, read Career Tips For Water Signs.
Air: Gemini, Libra & Aquarius
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are the signs ruled by the element, Air.
These signs are highly intelligent, with the gears of their minds in constant motion. They are known for their cognitive abilities and thinking skills, making them great problem solvers in any career field. Leave it to an Air sign to come up with a creative solution to nearly any challenging situation in the office!
Air signs’ minds tend to wander, however, and it may be difficult for you to stay focused on one task at a time.
It’s important that you find a job that stimulates you mentally so that you remain engaged and interested in your career. This also makes it a great idea for you to follow your own path and entrepreneurial endeavors, as you can create your own goals and schedules.
Whatever you do in your career, try to make sure it is something that tickles your brain and makes you feel intellectually involved.
To learn more about each specific Air sign and their career personality, read Career Tips For Air Signs.
Following Your Bliss
Even if you feel stuck in your current position, remind yourself that it’s not forever, and begin building the foundation for manifesting your ultimate career path. Write down exactly what you want, how much you want to make, and what you want to do for work. Be as specific as possible and start to draw this position to you.
While you may feel uninspired right now, you can always begin structuring your dream job today. Close your eyes, let the inspiration flow, and begin to follow your bliss!

Welcome to your astrology forecast for the week of June 8 – 14 beautiful souls!
This week we have a waning Moon, which means we are entering a time of decreased illumination. When our creative spark is not at its highest, it’s easier to get daily tasks out of the way. This week is great for following up on the things that arrived during the Full Moon last week, and incorporating those blessings into our lives.
It might feel like there’s a lot to process after such a high energy Lunar eclipse, so take some time to integrate the changes and really allow yourself to go through the emotions.
What can you expect this week from the stars?
With the Sun still in Gemini, it’s prime time to do some fun summer activities that will allow that Gemini energy to get its playful fix. Go ahead and let yourself take a breath from charging ahead so hard with work so that you can make sure you’re doing what you really want to be doing, and enjoying the journey.
Gemini has a way of helping us get real with what just doesn’t fit our true nature, because it helps us stop caring so much about what other people think.
We can learn more about what our relationships might reveal about ourselves, and what they are based on, with this planetary influence. The main takeaway for this week’s astrology overview is to be patient.
With four planets retrograde, you may be feeling like you want everything to happen all at once, but that there are delays. The delays are allowing you to be fully prepared in mind, body, and spirit so that the quality of your next chapter is as exceptional as possible.
Being in the middle of eclipse season between the Lunar and Solar eclipse can feel very heavy and intense.
Notice if you feel trepidation and work on replacing it with trust that you’re right where you need to be. You will go through this transformation each year and survive it, becoming wiser in the process.

This year in the beautiful and bright August Sun, we will dance with the confidence, dramatics, and fire of Leo season, kick off with an eccentric Full Moon in Aquarius, and continue to wrestle with the many retrogrades of 2020 — need to catch a breath?
Unfortunately, the stars stop for no one!
Indeed, the stars, Moon, and Universe above may never take a break from turning the heat up a notch with every month forward in 2020, but we can always be prepared for what may come with the Tarot guiding the way. As all experiences may vary, we’ve pulled one Tarot card each from the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana per zodiac sign to uncover the specific secrets and plans that the universe has in store for you this August.
So here’s your chance to get ahead before the marathon of 2020 continues! You can find your August 2020 Tarotscope below.
Your August 2020 Tarot Horoscope
The Chariot (Reversed) & 4 of Pentacles
Your Tarot cards for this month are The Chariot (reversed) and the 4 of Pentacles.
The keyword for August for our determined Aries friends is resources. Whether it is your time, skills, or finances, what is typically spontaneous and passionate Aries energy seems to be put in check this month.
Perhaps it is the self-confidence and focus of the Fixed sign Leo season that will be making you call into question how giving you would like to be with your resources, but it seems that, for now, your attitude is focused on maintaining what is yours in the present versus seeking more.
So long as you don’t lose sight of your long-term goals, this temporary re-calibration and recharge can be a great thing for your energetic health.
The High Priestess (Reversed) & 10 of Swords (Reversed)
Your Tarot cards for this month are The High Priestess (reversed) and the 10 of Swords (reversed).
Taurus has been through a roller coaster of emotional ups and downs this past couple of months, and some amount of reflection and recuperation was seen this past July. With The High Priestess in reversed position, you may not quite feel like you have it all together yet, but that’s okay.
As you flip the tumultuous 10 of Swords upside down, Taurus will still be making clear headway towards a brighter future this August as the wounds heal.
For the best August experience, focus on letting go, clearing out the old, and remaining open to new possibilities without feeling the need to cling onto one or two possible outcomes.
Strength & Queen of Wands
Your Tarot cards for this month are Strength and the Queen of Wands.
All Geminis seem to be prospering under the Leo season festivities this August! As a Mutable, curious, and adaptable sign, it seems that you will be embracing the dramatics and passion of a fiery August.
In fact, challenges seem to pale in the face of your confidence and adaptability with Strength on the table for you, and the confidence that the Queen of Wands so naturally oozes forecasts an independence and creativity that is well-suited for Geminis.
Take advantage of this energy and your charisma by initiating conversations even with those that you typically wouldn’t, and open yourself up to new opportunities — jobs, projects, and creative endeavors — with ease and confidence. In other words, the world is your oyster this month, Gemini! It is up to you to seize it.
The Hermit & 5 of Swords
Your Tarot cards for this month are The Hermit and the 5 of Swords.
The emotional landscape of the world and personal spheres have not been so kind to those under the sign of Cancer, particularly these past few months. As The Tower cleared out much of the remaining dust and debris for Cancers in July, what remains is the emotional aftershock of moving on from something that perhaps not all of you were ready to let go of.
With The Hermit’s light here to guide the way, as well as the energy of conflict and defeat here with the 5 of Swords, plenty of introspection on why things happened for you the way that they did is highly likely this month.
This kind of introspection and contemplation is not new for Cancer placements, and you can expect that — no matter how difficult it may be! — the fruits of your labor will be extremely sweet, and your heart will be open and ready again to receive the love it deserves.
The Moon (Reversed) & Page of Cups
Your Tarot cards for this month are The Moon (reversed) and the Page of Cups.
You are cutting through any remaining clouds of confusion — confusion provided via courtesy of the mysterious The Moon card — with what you do best, Leo.
The creativity, spontaneity, and passion of the Page of Cups is being channeled by your bold Leo spirit this August in order to clear up some of the chaos of the world that may have been weighing on you recently.
You seem to understand that emotional and spiritual chaos will require emotional and spiritual solutions, which is why you turn to the creative arts and your intuitive practices in these times of distress — but not without your own special Leo flair!
Embrace these gifts of yours with the confidence you typically exude, and this very Leo season will be yours for the taking.
Wheel of Fortune (Reversed) & 7 of Pentacles
Your Tarot cards for this month are the Wheel of Fortune (reversed) and the 7 of Pentacles.
For our meticulous and detail-oriented Virgos, even the summer sun and fun can’t stop you from what you prefer to do with your time — plan, get on top of your work, and avoid the chaos.
Unfortunately, the Wheel of Fortune in reversed position indicates that it’s time to go with the flow rather than create your own, and the 7 of Pentacles suggests that you might ultimately end up planning without doing. Sometimes, the hustle must stop for good reasons that we can’t always see until it’s all in hindsight, and the Universe seems to prevent us from doing the things we want to do.
Ultimately, going against the will and whims of the world will just accomplish burnout. Don’t be afraid to take this opportunity to rest, rejuvenate, and relax, Virgo! (It is still summer, after all).

The Hanged Man & King of Cups
Your Tarot cards for this month are The Hanged Man and the King of Cups.
As our Libra friends just went through major changes and shifts in July when meeting the Death card, it’s only fitting that August is about getting your emotional ducks in a row.
With the energy of The Hanged Man at your disposal, you’ll be more likely to see much of your world be put on pause so that you can recharge your batteries in the meantime. The King of Cups comes through with an emotionally stable, creative, and intuitive energy, demonstrating what it truly means to have a good head on your shoulders.
Libras will be attempting to channel this energy this month, and are likely to be successful in these pursuits. Now is a great time to pause and reflect!
The Fool (Reversed) & 10 of Cups
Your Tarot cards for this month are The Fool (reversed) and the 10 of Cups.
A key theme for Scorpios to ponder this August is what you wish to see lie ahead at the finish line. Life isn’t a sprint, but a marathon.
Maybe it’s the spontaneity and passion of Leo season that emphasizes your own passion and deeply emotional nature, but whatever it is — you may feel your adventurous desires stir. Fight the temptation to jump into anything and everything too quickly, and remember that your end-game goals are going to be so much sweeter than any short-term gain.
When you are granted opportunities this August to take shortcuts, see through the deception with your keen Scorpio eye!
The Empress & 5 of Wands
Your Tarot cards for this month are The Empress and the 5 of Wands.
This month brings in a variety of unrelated factors that only the adaptable and willful Sagittarian spirit is truly able to handle!
First, The Empress suggests that August is a month of manifestation and getting your affairs in order. You may be planning ahead and thinking about what forms of abundance are appealing to you, and how you can put your passions into a practical form of work. This is a hefty task in itself!
And second, the 5 of Wands suggests that you may be facing some social conflict and push back, or be witness to social structures, conventions, and traditions crumbling around you. As much as you would like to avoid the conflict, it seems you may ultimately play mediator.
Stay alert and remain quick on your feet as you always do, and remember that this month will be full of the kinds of challenges that you of all people are meant to overcome!
The Magician & Knight of Pentacles (Reversed)
Your Tarot cards for this month are The Magician and the Knight of Pentacles (reversed).
Everyone knows that you Capricorns can be the heavy workhorses of the zodiac with little regard for whether or not you’re actually enjoying the work you do — but it seems that this isn’t a problem you’ll be facing this August!
With the magic of The Magician at work, you’ll be using your wit and creative juices diligently to manifest, work, and get the job done, and enjoying it in the process.
The only thing to look out for is that the typically reliable Knight of Pentacles is in reversed position, encouraging you not to be focused on timelines or outcomes. The Magician is all about embracing the journey and the process, so don’t slip into the tempting Capricorn tendency of perfectionism!
The Sun (Reversed) & 3 of Swords
Your Tarot cards for this month are The Sun (reversed) and the 3 of Swords.
You may find yourself hurting this month, Aquarius. As the sun is in Leo for the majority of August, a position of detriment for you, the effect may be more frustrating than you anticipated.
While everyone is focused on their own self-worth, drive, and goals, you’re still tapping into global and universal energy being a natural humanitarian, and will find it harder to connect with others on your core values as everyone turns inward.
It may feel like a lonelier month, but your woes are temporary. Do your best to connect with those that are close friends and loved ones, and remember that a journal will always be there to lend an ear if you need to let off some steam.

The Emperor & Ace of Cups (Reversed)
Your Tarot cards for this month are The Emperor and the Ace of Cups (reversed).
You may be soft, sweet, and sensitive souls, but this month is about stepping into a masculine energy and showing off your leadership skills, Pisces! As it is going to be Leo season for most of August, it only makes sense that it is also your time to reign and show yourself off!
The Emperor encourages you to take on authority positions, stand up for yourself, and allow yourself to lead. The Ace of Cups in reversed position may indicate that for now, love and your interpersonal connections will be put on hold to make way for your newfound leader energy and personal pursuits.
But don’t worry — those romance and friendship related opportunities will still be waiting for you when you’re done ruling the world!
A Final Reminder For August 2020
Even when the world seems to be continuing to turn and speed ahead without you, the stars and the cards are truly here to help you catch up.
Sometimes the wisdom of the Tarot or the forecast of the latest astrology transit may not always make sense in the moment, but the words offered will hold resonance for us later down the road when we truly need it.
This is why a Tarotscope is a valuable tool to have at your disposal for the month ahead — you can refer to it at any point throughout the month!

Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign with an assertive, passionate attitude that can be felt by anyone around them. When you’re in the same room with an Aries, you may feel magnetically drawn to their larger-than-life presence, eager to soak in their warm energy and enthusiastic spirit.
As we move into Aries season, there is no better time to learn more about how this feisty sign experiences love and which signs will vibrate most effortlessly with vibrant Aries.
It is important to remember, especially when looking into the world of astrological compatibility, that we are generally looking at how well two Sun signs (the sign that represents where the Sun was located at the time you were born, and the most well-known of the signs) interact with each other. While two Sun signs may not be the most compatible signs together, there are many other signs and aspects within your chart that may smooth out any incompatibilities between your Sun signs.
To truly understand the compatibility between yourself and someone else, you would probably need to contact an experienced astrologer and request a synastry report—a report that looks at both of your natal charts and how they interact with one another.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the most compatible and least compatible signs for Aries.
Before we look at how Aries loves, let’s take a peek at who Aries is.
Positive Traits Include:
Negative Traits Include:
- Quick to Anger
It’s important to remember that every sign has both positive and negative traits and that no sign is perfect. The inviting, friendly, driven nature of Aries more than makes up for their impulsivity or impatience.

While any signs can learn to get along well one another, there are certain signs that just seem to vibrate really well together. The most compatible signs for any zodiac sign typically fall within the same Elemental ruler, which for Aries, is Fire.
Most Compatible Matches for Aries
That’s right, one of the most compatible signs for Aries are fellow Aries! This union is typically positive and full of enthusiasm, as the buoyant spirit between two Aries will infuse one another. This relationship will experience fireworks, which can be both beautiful and explosive. The biggest challenge an Aries-Aries union will face is learning how to contain big emotions and refrain from indulging in impatience and a short-temper. If you can learn to find an appropriate outlet for all that passion, this relationship will experience joy and connection.
Leo is a Fixed sign, ruled by Fire. This is the same Fire that provides Aries with its feisty nature, making these two a great match. Leos are lively, extroverted, passionate, and creative. Leos possess a similar enthusiasm for live, but their spirit is more aligned with socialization than success, with creativity rather than raw ambition. Leo’s energy is not quite as intense as Aries, allowing for more peace within this union. While Aries might not be able to draw the line when it comes to their passionate emotions, Leo knows when it’s safer and more preferable to back down.
The Mutable Fire sign, Sagittarius shares the same optimism and joviality that Leo presents. An Aries-Sag union will experience plenty of laughter and joy, as the lightheartedness that Sagittarius possesses helps Aries choose their battles and focus on the positive. Sagittarius helps Aries relax and have a little fun, while Aries helps Sag settle down a bit a focus on serious matters. A relationship between these two signs will still experience passion, but with a hint of comedy. There is an air of love and light when these signs come together.
While two signs sharing the same element are often the most compatible, Air is another element that gets along swimmingly with Fire. Air feeds Fire’s energy, introducing an element that is needed to keep the flames alive. Gemini is an intellectual sign that matches well with Aries’ smart, driven nature. These two will share deep conversation and a spiritual connection that brings them closer to one another and their path in life.
Least Compatible Signs for Aries
Cancer is a Cardinal Water sign that may seem to hold Aries back. Aries feels things passionately, and so does Cancer, but their feelings manifest in very different ways. While Cancer may feel like venting or working through their emotional issues, Aries wants to get out there and find a way to combat them through physical exercise or hard work. An Aries will not likely want to sit around and talk about their feelings, which can make a Cancer feel isolated or alone in their emotional experience.
Symbolically, Capricorns are represented by the goat, while Aries are associated with the ram: two stubborn animals with horns for butting up against their opponents. Capricorns are a Mutable Earth sign with their own dreams and desires for success; however, they typically approach this goal through hard work at a slow and steady pace. Aries, on the other hand, goes for what they want most in the moment, rarely slowing down to plan for the future. The impulsive nature of Aries is enough to make Capricorn feel out of control, while Aries might feel like they’re being held back by Capricorn’s caution.
Embracing Aries’ Intensity
Even if you aren’t the perfect match for Aries, you can still enjoy their passionate, fiery nature.
When you’re around an Aries, you won’t be bored. Their enthusiasm for life penetrates everyone around them, and they have an uncanny ability to make their friends and family feel more alive simply by their presence.
Embrace the intense nature of the Aries for a connection you’ll never forget.

Astrology is a many-layered, complex thing. To some degree, everyone has an idea of astrology. You may know your Sun Sign as indicated by the day you were born, or your Rising Sign as indicated by the hour you were born.
But astrology is more than just signs and planets. It’s also made up of houses. Never heard of the astrological houses? Let’s take a look!
What are the Astrological Houses?
Just as there are 12 signs of the zodiac, there are also 12 houses that each sign rules. Each house has its own special function and sometimes people study their houses so they can predict which parts of their life will come into focus and the best way for them to take action.
Just like the zodiac signs are divided into smaller groups of Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable to further define commonalities such as who are the natural leaders (Cardinal), who are the most able to be flexible and open-minded (Mutable) and who are the most likely to stick to their guns (Fixed), so too are the astrological house grouped.
When you get your birth chart, looking at the groupings of houses and the signs or planets found in them, the more you can learn about your unique personality!
1st, 5th, and 9th Houses – The Life Houses – representing how you feel overall about and engage with your life.
2nd, 6th, and 10th Houses – The Career Houses – representing how you approach your work, your values and how you deal with money.
3rd, 7th, and 11th Houses – The Relationship Houses – How you communicate with others, make friends and how to find what you need from others to feel fulfilled.
4th, 8th, and 12th Houses – The Intuition Houses – representing how you feel about home, family, dreams, secrets and the subconscious.
The houses and their signs are as follows:
1st House: The House of Self ruled by Aries (this is also where the Rising Sign is based).
2nd House: The House of Money and Material Value ruled by Taurus.
3rd House: The House of Communication ruled by Gemini.
4th House: The House of Emotions ruled by Cancer.
5th House: The House of Creativity ruled by Leo.
6th House: The House of Work and Duty ruled by Virgo
7th House: The House of Relationships ruled by Libra.
8th House: The House of Transformation ruled by Scorpio.
9th House: The House of Travel and Higher Learning ruled by Sagittarius.
10th House: The House of Career and Reputation ruled by Capricorn.
11th House: The House of Friendship and Ideals ruled by Aquarius.
12th House: The House of the Subconscious ruled by Pisces.

What are the Intuitive Houses?
The 4th, 8th, and 12th houses are part of the trine that is the intuitive houses. They are ruled by Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, all the Water signs.
Of all the elements in astrology, Water is known for its depth and ability to penetrate beneath the surface. Cancer is the Cardinal Water sign, Scorpio is the Fixed Water sign and Pisces is the Mutable Water sign. Cardinal, Fixed, or Mutable, all of these signs are known for their psychic ability, intuition, and emotional depth.
People with a lot of water in their birth chart tend to be very sensitive and possess strong psychic abilities.
The 4th House
Ruled by the sensitive crab, Cancer, this is the house that rules our emotions. Here, we feel our nurturing side, our desire to understand our emotions, and the urge to connect with others on an emotional level. It is a good idea to check which sign and planet is in your 4th house so you can understand your emotional reactions better and gain greater insight into how they guide you. (Note: You will not necessarily have a planet in every single house).
The 8th House
Ruled by the intense sign of Scorpio, the 8th house is quite intimidating to some people. It rules the hidden part of ourselves, the sides that we don’t want others to see, and which we may even hide from ourselves. It also represents sex, death, and all things taboo.
It represents the darker side of Scorpio, but it is also the most powerful house for transformation as we strive to be better within ourselves. Knowing what sign/planets you have in the 8th house can help you understand your shadow side and how you can integrate it into your personality in order to feel more whole.
The 12th House
Ruled by watery Pisces, the 12th House is the most mysterious house of all. It governs our subconscious. It is the house of dreams and intuition. Everything ethereal and other-worldly belongs in this house. It is the house of imagination, but also the house of escapism.
When you understand what sign/planets you have in the 12th house, you can understand the deepest part of yourself better and also understand why you act the way you do at a level that is difficult to understand with your conscious mind.
The Moon is feminine, powerful, and intuitive. When she makes her rounds through the signs every few days, we feel the energy she is impacting on these signs.
So, when the Moon is in Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces, there is a focus on our emotions and intuition. This focus is usually directed to a certain house which depends on your sign. If you would like to know which sign the Moon is in on any given day, check out your Daily Horoscope.
For example, the Moon in Cancer often brings strong emotional energy and more vivid dreams. The Moon is at home in Cancer and when these two meet, our psychic abilities and intuition are strengthened. This makes it a good time to explore our emotions further or train our own intuitive gifts (especially with crystals such as selenite and moonstone).
The houses are a fascinating aspect of astrology and it benefits us to understand more about them. The intuitive houses ruled by the Water signs can help us flex our psychic muscles, so if this is an area you would like to develop, it’s always good to check what sign/planets are in those houses in your chart and also where the Moon is currently at.
Remember, when you work with the universal energies and understand how they personally impact you, you can understand yourself at a deeper level and tap into parts of yourself you may not have even known existed.

From May 21 to June 20 we are in Gemini season, which means the Sun is in the Air Sign of Gemini. Gemini’s Air energy can make us really imaginative, social, and curious but it can also make it a bit harder to stay grounded and complete tasks. It’s a fun time to let your creative insights flourish and to rediscover your ability to play and have fun at any age.
We also have Mercury in Gemini until May 28, making that time from May 21-28 extra infused with Gemini wit, humor, and quirkiness. The Gemini zodiac sign makes our upper chakras very active. We think quickly and our minds have lots of energy to come up with new ideas. In order to stay balanced and actually use those ideas, it’s good to work on activating the lower chakras.
It will help you to know that as the Sun moves through different zodiac signs, we can do chakra work to help balance the energies. When it comes to chakra healing, a chakra may be either under-active and shrunken or overactive and blown out. Our goal is to bring balance to our chakra energy by making sure they are all functioning with balance between the two.
This little chakra ritual check-in will help you get through Gemini season without losing your sense of stability but also to embrace the fun spirit of Gemini!
How Gemini is Linked To The Body
While there are not Gemini chakras, we know that Gemini is connected to the nervous system, the lungs, shoulders, chest, arms, hands, and fingers. The Heart chakra links to these body parts as well. It’s interesting that the Heart chakra is smack dab between the upper and lower triangle of chakras. The Gemini energy has a certain duality to it which helps us see both sides to an argument and to understand people with different viewpoints.
However, we may also be more prone to telling white lies, not following through with our promises, or even being indecisive. This chakra ritual will help you bring out the best of Gemini energy while quieting the not so desirable traits.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which links to our Throat chakra as well. The element of Air links to the Heart and Throat chakras that our breath moves through, linking Gemini predominantly to these two chakras.
Gemini is also linked to the Third-eye chakra and Crown chakra because it stimulates thinking and ideas, and we could also say Gemini links to the Sacral chakra, where our creative energy is stored and generated.

A Chakra Balancing Ritual For Gemini Season
You will need a jar of dirt to represent Earth, a candle to represent Fire, a bowl of Water to represent itself, and incense or a feather to represent Air. To do this ritual, find a quiet place where you can sit and start by breathing in and out of your nose deeply five times. On each exhale, relax deeply to prepare yourself for the ritual.
To connect to the four elements, state each of these affirmations as you hold the object that represents the element.
- With this soil, I ground my energy and call on the Universe to help me feel stable right now.
- With this water, I release negative energy and call on the Universe to help me focus on positive emotions right now.
- With this candle, I activate my creative passion and call on the Universe to help me ignite my purpose right now.
- With this feather (or incense), I allow myself to think optimistically and I call on the Universe to help me envision a positive future right now.
Now with the four elements activated, you will use these chakra balancing affirmations to activate and balance each of the seven main chakras.
1st Chakra Affirmation: I’m firmly connected to the Earth. I focus on what I am doing and make sure I take care of my bills, eat grounding solid foods, and slow down so I think before making decisions.
Now visualize a red ball of light the size of a tennis ball at the base of the spine.
2nd Chakra Affirmation: I am creative and can manifest, but I slow down to check in with my gut before I pursue something to make sure it’s in my highest good. I make time to play each day.
Now visualize an orange ball of light the size of an orange at the lower abdomen.
3rd Chakra Affirmation: I am optimistic and joyful. I exercise to get rid of excess energy.
Now visualize a yellow ball of light the size of a grapefruit at the diaphragm.
4th Chakra Affirmation: I’m kind, compassionate, and I am honest about what I want and need. I set healthy boundaries with others and with how I use my time.
Now visualize a green ball of light the size of your fist at the heart.
5th Chakra Affirmation: I share my ideas after I have thought them through. I listen when other people speak.
Now visualize a blue ball of light the size of an apple at the throat .
6th Chakra Affirmation: I can see my goal clearly so that I know how to best use my time to accomplish it. I simply focus on one goal at a time.
Now visualize a purple ball of light the size of a plum at the forehead.
7th Chakra Affirmation: I sense my spiritual purpose and live based on my purpose. I meditate and allow inspiration into my mind.
Now visualize white light spiraling upwards from the top of your head.

June 5, 2020

This Full Moon is in the Fire sign of Sagittarius, meaning we will want to get out and explore. It will also help us bravely let go of old parts of our life that aren’t matching the upgraded ideas we have been brewing.
It’s a day when wishes come true and people may get into arguments if they don’t take a minute to breathe. A lunar eclipse on a Full Moon brings change in the major areas of life, so watch as everyone goes through cosmic musical chairs together!
Mercury stations retrograde today joining 4 other planets that are already retrograde (Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn, & Venus).

The Summer Solstice is not just the first official day of summer and the longest day of the year, it also has an energetic/spiritual energy that can help us in our personal growth.
It is a time where our energy ascends to spiritual realms and we can sense the light that is within us more readily. Taking some time to meditate on this day can remind you of your true spiritual essence – and it’s a great day to set the intention to integrate it into your daily life.
June 21, 2020
- New Moon in Cancer, solar eclipse
- Sun enters Cancer
With the Sun and the Moon in Cancer on this New Moon Solar Eclipse, you are going to feel emotions strongly today. Let it be a day for spiritual healing and connection to your true inner spirit. You may feel the urge to charge ahead, but feel like you can’t yet see the path.
Trust that if you just take one step at a time with one foot in front of another, the fog will eventually clear and your intuition will have led you to the front door of the castle of your dreams.
We kick off a new 6-month creation process today for our life goals, so journal away on those dreams and set your sights on your heart’s greatest desires. Align yourself with passion and purpose!
June 22, 2020
- Neptune Retrograde in Pisces
With Neptune retrograde for the next 160 days, we can hone in on spiritual growth. The rude awakening this cycle brings alerts us to unhealthy avenues we take trying to avoid our emotions.
The planet that helps us with intuition is inviting us to work on our internal connection to our spiritual wisdom as it moves through watery Pisces.
June 25, 2020
- Venus direct in Gemini
Cue the sighs of relief because the pressure is finally off of our love life, and new relationships can start to blossom again with Venus, the planet of romance, in social butterfly Gemini. Try and find creative (and safe) ways to embrace this energy this month.
June 28, 2020
- Mars (Aries) sextile Saturn (Aquarius)
- Mars enters Aries
When the planet of passion, Mars, enters the very sign that it rules, Aries, watch out world, because you are unstoppable!
You are fully stocked with all the energy you need to start the engines on your biggest goals. You feel brave, magnetic, and want to move now.
You may not be able to take all the steps forward, because of the residual of the various retrogrades, but you can do all the prep work and add the extra creative touches that will make you stand out.
June 30, 2020

The biggest event this week is Friday, June 5th when we have the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the Fire sign of Sagittarius! This will bring big changes because that is the nature of an eclipse.
You might see people breaking up due to not being a great match (finally), and moving on. The purge in our minds will feel like a good cleanse on this day. You can also expect blessings to show up on the two days before and after based on what you’ve been calling in for the first half of 2020.
June 2020 astrology is also thick with retrogrades!
We already have Pluto, Saturn, Venus, and Jupiter retrograde. We are doing lots of internal transformation now because we see how we have been blocking our own success. As we release old patterns, we are in a time of rebirth. Be extra loving with yourself, and take time to let your emotions come up and out with a good cry and journaling session. We will see Mercury & Neptune go retrograde later this month.

What can you expect this week from the stars?
I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news so listen closely: this astrology overview is not saying your love is doomed, it’s saying this week will help clear the toxic relationships or the wrong partnerships to make way for the best ones that will manifest eventually.
The relationships that are meant to last will be stretched but ultimately show they are built on a solid foundation.
Now, a Full Moon lunar eclipse in a Fire sign can make you temperamental and cause fights. But now that you are in the know, you can take the time to breathe, and stay calm, so that you don’t let the Moon’s energy catch you off guard.
My advice is to channel the creative Fire energy by focusing on your goals and steering clear of people who push your buttons.
Also, just a heads up! Tuesday may bring a test to your love life so stay calm and find some zen instead of getting defensive.

While reading the stars can show us what kind of decisions and problems we may be facing at any given time, we are primarily equipped with our intuition, wit, and good senses when it comes to making those tough choices.
If only it were always that simple!
Sometimes, the intuition feels hazy and suddenly nothing is clear. We might not have a quick and easy “yes or no” answer to our problems. Suddenly, we’re sitting in a 7 of Cups moment with options, illusions, and clouded vision throwing us all out of sync.
When all else fails, Tarot is a tool that can help us tap into the deepest and cleanest parts of our intuition and psyche, and we can use it in these kinds of situations!
We’ve crafted a very simple and easy Tarot spread to help you with your decision-making processes, and shed some light into the areas that may appear to be all shadow.
Read this next: How to Tap into Your Intuition With Tarot
Decision-Making 6-Card Tarot Spread
- What is the core energy of the situation?
- What is something important about the situation that you aren’t seeing?
- Another important factor to take into consideration is…
- What is the attitude that you need in order to make this decision?
- What did your intuition first tell you about the situation?
- What is some advice that you need to hear?
Below you can find an example of what the spread might look like in practice.
1. What is the core energy of the situation? – The Moon
The Moon brings an energy of mystery and confusion to any situation, so having its energy dead-center of a situation that requires decision-making can make for an awfully confusing time. Knowing that not all is at it seems, however, is still an extremely useful piece of information, as The Moon reminds you not to try to think things out too logically, or else you might miss solutions that are more emotional, intuitive, or less cut and dry.
Embrace the gray area with this card!
2. What is something important about the situation that you aren’t seeing? – Wheel of Fortune
Not all has to be done by your hands. This card reminds you that some things are just up to fate, luck, or whatever powers that may be. Ruled by Jupiter, the planet of luck, the Wheel of Fortune is a wonderful ally to have at your disposal.
Trust that your decision will be the right one with some help from luck itself, even if you can’t see that mysterious force in action.
This card may indicate that making any decision is going to be more beneficial than making no decision at all. The energy of the 4 of Pentacles is a clingy one, and if you squeeze too tightly onto something, you can risk the possibility of it slipping out of your tight grasp.
Let the warning of the 4 of Pentacles remind you that a decision should be made no matter how unsure you are of the direction you ultimately choose!
4. What is the attitude that you need in order to make this decision? – 10 of Cups
At the end of the day, keep the long-term goals, true desires, dreams, and aspirations you have for yourself in the front of your mind.
The 10 of Cups is happiness embodied, and boldly displays many of the components that have led to that happiness. However, components and pieces aside, the beautiful bounty that is being enjoyed in this card are often values like love, family, trust, and other important things that we keep close to our hearts.
Don’t lose those in all of the chaos!
5. What did your intuition first tell you about the situation? – Page of Cups
The Page of Cups is an enthusiastic, creative, and open-minded spirit that is optimistic by nature, and isn’t afraid to take some leaps of faith to try something a little different.
This card may be encouraging you to take that leap of faith; your intuition may have initially prompted you to try an option that is outside of the box, unconventional, or totally out of your comfort zone.
6. What is some advice that you need to hear? – The Tower
Change is inevitable, and The Tower is a (sometimes painful) note of this. While you can try your best to do damage control, there may be a reason that this decision is hard to make in the first place.
Perhaps not everything is meant to fall into place neatly, and perhaps it is not possible for everyone to walk away unscathed from the tower collapsing. As quickly as it tumbles, however, there will always be people there to rebuild something stronger in its place.
Keep in Mind…
Tarot can’t do the work for you — at the end of the day, the decision will always be yours to make. However, a spread like this, or any method of reaching out to the Tarot for insight, can seriously take some of the weight off of your shoulders when it comes time for you to lay down your final judgment.
And don’t worry: whatever it is you choose, Tarot will be there to support you time and time again!

It’s summertime in the Northern Hemisphere, and with the warm breeze of summer often comes the whispering winds of romance. We may be prone to start thinking about romantic connections as the weather warms up, and we look for new adventures to occupy what many consider to be the best time of the year. And with the desire for romance comes the question of compatibility.
It’s not always easy to tell how compatible you are with someone else based solely on interactions, especially because everyone tends to flirt and date in different manners. This is why it’s useful to turn to metaphysical tools like numerology and astrology to give us a bit more information that may be lying underneath the surface of a connection.
Today, we’re utilizing numerology to get more insight into how your Destiny number (also called the Expression number) can help you determine compatibility with another Destiny number – and we’re focusing on Destiny numbers 1 and 2.
Finding Your Destiny Number
Numerology utilizes 11 numbers to learn more about our fate, including 1-9, 11, and 22. (11 and 22 are considered Master numbers with unique meanings; but, when determining Destiny numbers, these numbers are reduced to a single digit).
You may be wondering how to find your Destiny number, which is actually quite simple and involves your full birth name, or the name you identify with. Each letter of the alphabet is assigned to a number in numerology.
So, to get your Destiny number, you’ll want to add the letters your full name, one name at a time. Let’s use the name Amy Lee Smith for example:
Amy = 1 + 4 + 7 = 12
And then we reduce that number by adding the digits: 1 + 2 = 3
Lee = 3+5+5 = 13
1+3 = 4
Smith = 1 + 4 + 9 + 2 + 8 = 24
2 + 4 = 6
Now, we’re going to add the three digits representing each name.
3 + 4 + 6 = 13
1 + 3 = 4
Amy Lee Smith’s Destiny number is 4.
If you’d like more information on how to calculate your Destiny or Expression number you can see: How Your Expression Number Shapes Your Destiny.
Now that you know more about how to find your Destiny number, let’s take a look at the most and least compatible numbers for Destiny numbers 1 and 2.
Love Compatibility for Destiny Number 1
Those with the Destiny number 1 are born as natural leaders of the pack. They typically have an entrepreneurial spirit, they’re self-sufficient, and they know how to get what they want out of life.
While they can appear intense or even aggressive at times, these folks have a big heart and can be quite affectionate. Additionally, their intellectual skills are through the roof.
As a number 1, you will stop at nothing to make your dreams come true. Let’s take a look at compatibility between number 1 and other Destiny numbers.
This can be a thriving combination if you can learn how to dial back your competitive nature when you’re with one another. The intellectual vibes the two of you share will lead to deep, intense conversations that can carry on for hours.
You may butt heads from time to time, as you’re both very opinionated – but if you can keep an open mind with each other, this can be a match made in heaven.
Destiny number 2 indicates a cooperative, compromising individual who wants to get along with others. This can be a great match if you’re looking for this kind of dynamic – one strong personality met with one negotiator.
Number 2 can help number 1 stay calm in the face of stress, as they’re able to help you think things through and focus on your ultimate goals. This match can help you find more patience in everyday life.
Destiny number 3s are excellent communicators, which meshes well with your sense of initiative. If this couple has a problem, they’re able to face it head-on, finding a solution by working through it together.
However, number 3s have an enthusiasm for life that sometimes gets in the way of their long-term goals, as they’d rather relax and have fun.
If you need to be reminded to take a break every once in a while, this can be an excellent match, as they’ll help you step out of your comfort zone (which is hard work) and encourage you to try new things.
These folks are hardworking, down-to-Earth, and focused – which can be a great match for you, number 1. If you are both working towards a shared goal, there’s little that can get in your way to stop you.
While this may not be the most playful union, it can be a very productive one.
However, both 1s and 4s can be stubborn and headstrong. This may be a dedicated, loyal union, but you may also face a few conflicts along the way.
Destiny number 5 craves creative self-expression, freedom, and adventure. If you’re in the mood for a wild ride, this can be a great partnering.
However, you may be bothered by number 5’s lack of routine, as they like to shake things up.
If you can stay focused on your goals with this wildcard, this relationship can be fun and exhilarating. Just make sure not to try to force your routine onto them, as they may feel resentful and rebellious, causing conflict.
If you are more extroverted or enjoy spending time with others, this can be a fantastic union.
If you feel like social gatherings distract you and get in the way of your career goals, this can be a frustrating match.
7s are fellow intellectuals, meaning the conversations between you will be both exciting and full of depth. Number 7s dig deep beneath the surface to get to the truth, and you may feel thrown off by their forthright nature.
You won’t be able to control this relationship, or its trajectory, as 7s are just as headstrong as you are.
If intellectual conversation is what you most seek in a relationship, this can be a liberating union.
Destiny number 8s are just as focused on success and their long-term goals as you are, making this a financially successful union.
That being said, romance and passion may be lacking, as you’re both very focused on your career and material success.
If you’re more concerned with wealth and power than passion and romance, this is an excellent match. The two of you will work together to make sure that you get where you want to go in life.
Number 9s are visionary, curious, and sensitive. They require a compassionate partner who understands and cares about their needs. If you’re willing to take time out of your busy schedule to tend to their emotional and physical needs, they will be very loyal and responsive.
You’ll take a natural leadership role in the relationship and wearing the pants will be easy for you in this union.
Just make sure you have the time and drive to make room for their desires as well.

Love Compatibility for Destiny Number 2
Destiny number 2s are people who are compassionate, compromising, and incredibly friendly. They enjoy working with others and are very cooperative.
Number 2s are also rather intuitive and naturally understanding, reading the emotions of others, whether they share those emotions or not. Deeply connected to your feelings, you’re more likely to follow your heart rather than your head in most matters.
Let’s look more closely at compatibility between Destiny number 2, and all other Destiny numbers.
This can be a great match, as long as you don’t mind your partner wearing the pants in a relationship. Number 1s are headstrong, and as natural leaders, they can’t help but take charge in most situations.
If you have trouble making decisions and like a little direction, you’ll greatly benefit from number 1’s decisive attitude. However, you’ll have to learn how to avoid taking their aggressive nature personally.
This may be a match made in heaven, as two number 2s working together create peace and harmony in nearly any situation!
You get along well, and it’s almost as if you can read each other’s minds. There’s plenty of care and support in this partnership, and you’ll both feel as though your needs are being met.
When it comes to conflict, you’re both likely to listen compassionately and find a compromise that works for both of you.
3s are naturally drawn to communication and sharing their thoughts and ideas with others; however, their zest for life distracts them from settling down.
There may be issues with timing and commitment between the two of you, and you may have to be patient with them for quite a while before they’re willing to commit themselves to you.
If you really like them and you’re willing to wait for them to open up, this can be a loyal union.
Number 4s are hardworking, practical, and goal oriented. If you enjoy routine and stability within relationships, this one can run smoothly. However, it may seem like they’re not giving you the attention you crave from time to time.
They’re very focused on their projects, and they’re likely to dive into them with a passion that leaves little time for you.
If you’re more independent and willing to be patient, number 4s can be extremely loyal partners.
5s are creative, expressive, and carefree. They enjoy their individuality and like spending plenty of time alone, which may cause insecurities to rise within you.
This union may demand patience and understanding from you, and at times it might seem like your number 5 is being flippant or ignoring you.
If you can learn not to take their need for freedom personally, the two of you can get along swimmingly.
Destiny number 6s are very focused on their relationships and friendships, and they’re loyal to those they love – which matches your personality very well. You may need to work on trusting their intuition as well as your own, as number 6s often sense things unseen and seem to just “know” the right direction to take.
If you can learn to trust their judgement and let them take the reins from time to time, you two should enjoy a dedicated, cooperative relationship.
Number 7s can be moody, as their natural inclination to seek the truth can make them suspicious of others, causing insecurity for both of you.
Your ability to understand the needs of others will help you know what a 7 needs in the moment.
If you are patient with their moods and understanding of their insecurities, they will be very loyal to you. Supporting one another is crucial for this union to work out.
8s are driven towards material wealth and career success, which can distract them from their romantic lives. If you too are drawn towards financial success and power – and you’re willing to sacrifice a bit of romance along the way – you can get along very well in a relationship with a number 8.
Just remind yourself not to take it personally when they have to work late many nights in a row or cancel plans for a project that needs their attention.
Destiny number 9s are creative, compassionate, and in tune with those around them – much like yourself. This is a relationship of mutual support, understanding, and dedication.
Your practicality will bring number 9 down to Earth, while their imagination will help you step outside of your comfort zone.
There is balance and harmony within this union, as you both enjoy taking care of the needs of others.
Using the Destiny Numbers to Your Advantage
This guide gives you a better idea of how you – Destiny numbers 1 and 2 – might match with other Destiny numbers. This does not mean that a relationship between yourself and any number can’t be a solid match. It’s all about how much you like an individual and how much work you’re willing to put into a relationship.
If you’re seeking a summer romance, this can help you narrow down your search, as you now have a better idea of the vibes that might exist between yourself and another Destiny number.
Now you just have to work up the courage to ask your crush their name!

Welcome to your astrology forecast for the week of June 22 – June 28 beautiful souls!
June 2020 has been filled with intense energy, and it isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Many global things are occurring, and multiple shifts in our systems are taking place. This is a time to pause, listen to what others might have to say, and reflect on how we can do better.
Read this next: Monthly Astrology Transits: June 2020
What can you expect this week from the stars?
On Monday, Neptune goes retrograde, welcoming us to see distractions that may have been blocking us from acknowledging our spiritual side. We may have a wake-up call that tells us: ignoring life won’t get us feeling inspired anymore, but acting with compassion will.
Then on Thursday, Venus stations direct giving us reprieve from tense interpersonal issues. It’s a better time to start a relationship or meet someone new, but still not the best time to jump all in because the mind isn’t entirely clear on where to land.
Mars moves into Aries on Sunday giving us fuel to move our projects forward. If you have been wanting to create a new business, this will help. If you’ve been itching to have more motivation, you’ll find plenty now. Hopefully, people will channel it in love, and not anger as Mars, the god of love and war, can be expressed mindfully or unconsciously.
The Moon is waxing, and energy is ripe for visualizing what we want and putting one foot in front of the other no matter how thick the fog ahead still may be.
Ask for what you want this week as we move closer to the Full Moon on July 5th, which will be the first since the Solar Eclipse, and has extra potent magic to tip the Universal scales in your favor. If you’re feeling “all the feels”, the past may feel very present as it comes up to be dealt with and healed.
This is part of a grand re-birthing happening on a personal and global level during the retrograde heavy eclipse season.

The Sun is in Cancer making us yearn for a soulmate and best friend to create a dynamic team to go through life with. We have Jupiter, Neptune, Mercury, Pluto, and Saturn retrograde for a big whopper of healing served to us straight from the cosmos.
Your positive takeaway for this week’s astrology overview is: now that Venus is direct, at least we can start to see a bit of the path ahead in our romantic lives.
Planetary Locations During June 22 – June 28, 2020

Daily Transit Snapshots for June 22 – June 28, 2020
Monday, June 22
Sun: Cancer – We are moved by matters of the heart. We want to help others, animals, and take a more gentle approach to our relationship with ourselves. We also seek comfort in food under this influence.
Moon: Cancer – We can sense what people are feeling and seem to have conversations with people without even speaking. The emotions can all talk at once, so taking time to shut down the thinking will help restore a sense of focus.
Event: Neptune retrograde in Pisces. If you were putting off emotional or spiritual healing, life might put up a stop sign to make sure you have time to do it now. That might mean an unexpected change that allows you to find a deeper spiritual connection, so look for lemons that you can turn into lemonade.
Tuesday, June 23
Wednesday, June 24
Moon: Leo – We want to expand and meet people. We crave a little something fun, new, and exciting.

Thursday, June 25
Event: Venus direct in Gemini. We are ready to talk about love and discuss ways of meeting interesting people. You might look to attend an event that attracts interesting people and find that you easily spark up conversations. We are ready to mingle even if it’s just finally using that dating app.
Friday, June 26
Moon: Virgo – It’s all about the details today and we find that fine-tuning whatever we are working on brings us satisfaction. We finally get to check off some things from our to-do-list and still find time to help our friends.

Sunday, June 28
Moon: Libra – Schedules can be thrown out the window because today we are making it up as we go. The creative Libra Moon energy wants to enjoy every moment and really experience the day with passion and purpose. It’s nice not to rush so much.
Transit: Mars (Aries) sextile Saturn (Aquarius). Big ideas are bursting forward as we are suddenly compelled to finally take that risk and see how to make it all happen. We are able to take charge of our path and move our energy towards our goals.
Ingress: Mars enters Aries. Mars will be in Aries until January 6, 2021. Mars usually only spends 2 months in a sign, but due to its retrograde (September 9 – November 13), we will have an extended boost of Aries energy.

Success isn’t a guarantee. It’s a result of skill, luck, hard work, timing… you get the picture. But sometimes, your path is written in the stars. You simply need to watch for the right cues and use your talents to your advantage.
What does success mean to you? Do you dream of financial security, admiration in your career, a loving family life, romance? Success is subjective, and one person’s idea of success may not align with another’s – especially when the elements are involved.
There are four astrological elements – Fire, Earth, Air, and Water – that rule over the signs. Depending on the element ruling over your own zodiac sign, success may mean something very specific to you. Looking at your sign’s element, along with your specific Sun sign, can tell you more about what success means to you and how to achieve it.
Astrology is a unique tool that can bring you closer to your own desires, as well as providing clues as to how to bring these desires into your view. Each individual aspect of astrology will shine light on otherwise hidden areas of your life. In addition to the elements that rule over the signs, each sign belongs in one of three categories:
- Cardinal (pivotal)
- Mutable (transitional)
- Fixed (stable)
When you learn more about your sign, like the element that rules over it, you’ll be better equipped to go for what you want in life with confidence and trust in the Universe.
Success for Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Known for their responsible, hard-working nature, Earth signs are almost inevitably successful. They are determined and driven enough to go after what they want, and they aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty. But it’s important for these signs to realize that ultimate success also involves play, connection with others, and time to enjoy your hobbies.
People born under Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) are known for being extremely grounded. Unless your stability is threatened, you’re a force to be reckoned with.
As an Earth sign, Taurus is prone towards a connection with Mother Nature, and the ability to work hard. However, you’re also deeply connected to your senses and you love to indulge in things like music, art, delicious food, and other sensory experiences. Success for you looks like situations, careers, and relationships that allow you to dive deeper into activities that make you feel at one with the Universe.
Your talents lie in creating beauty around you, so why not include elements of the Earth (flowers, wood, etc.) to your professional life? Working with art, food, music, or in nature will bring this vision closer.
Virgos enjoy routine and analyzation. You’re incredibly gifted at organization and you pay attention to detail with an intensity that few others can manage. Your gift of organization drives many areas of your life, making jobs like accounting, editorial work, some kind of organizational work, or finances come extremely easy to you.
As a Mutable sign, Virgos are more adaptable and willing to embrace different tasks from day to day. It’s important for you to remember, however, that success can apply to many areas of life. Make sure that you take time for activities you enjoy. In other words, stop and smell the roses every once in a while!
Capricorns are some of the hardest workers of the zodiac, and they have a keen sense for how to bring money and abundance into their lives. The biggest challenge for you, Capricorn, is learning to take a step back and appreciate other aspects of your life.
You’re destined to be the “boss”, either in your own business or in someone else’s. It’s a trait you can’t (and shouldn’t) hide. For this Cardinal sign under the Earth element, your destiny is met when your hard work aligns with your big dreams.
While you’re deeply loyal to your family, you may get so caught up in projects and chores that you neglect the part of you that needs connection and intimacy. Evaluate your ideas of success, and try to see where relationships, romance, and creativity fit in. Don’t forget that success can mean a well-rounded life rather than a lucrative career.
Success for Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Air signs are intellectual, social, and quick-witted. They’re able to find quick solutions to problems or challenges, but they can be quite indecisive. And because they spend so much time in their heads, it can be hard for them to connect to their emotions!
Success for an Air sign is a career, relationship, or life circumstance that allows them to connect the body to the mind.
Geminis have a sharp, quick wit that charms everyone around them. They have a smart answer for nearly any question that doesn’t involve their personal life – as they have quite the hard time making up their mind when it comes to their own emotions and desires.
Because of your dual nature, success means being able to change your mind, which is something you’re apt to do frequently. Writing comes naturally to Geminis; so, even if being an author isn’t your calling, try to incorporate writing into your life to help you narrow down your goals and ideas.
Fields of public speaking are also in line with your destiny, and when you match your intellectual capabilities with your determination, you can achieve anything.

Libras are the social butterflies of the zodiac, as they’re astute negotiators, and they know how to bring about compromise. You bring balance and harmony to nearly any project or relationship that you’re involved with, which means you excel at any career that allows you to mediate between two or more parties.
You’re great at initiating change both within your own life and your surrounding community. But true success for you also involves a rich social life, filled with love and connection.
Aquarians are future-oriented, naturally humanitarian, and drawn towards new modes of technology. You’re prone towards learning about, and even programming, new tech tools, so working in the field will come naturally to you. However, you are concerned with revolution, with making changes in this life, and with being of service to your fellow humans.
You’re best suited for a career that makes you feel like you’re contributing something to the world.
True success, however, means acknowledging your feelings and showing affection to those you care for – so try not to hold your emotions back. The more out of the box you are, the more successful you’ll be.
Success for Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Water signs (Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio) are deeply connected to their emotions, their intuition, and their creativity. Water signs feel their way through life, following their heart in most situations. You aren’t likely to find a Water sign sitting down to weigh the pros and cons of a situation – rather, they dive into their intuition and do what feels right in their soul.
Success for a Water sign means being able to do what feels right in the moment. That is the destiny of the Water signs — to fill the planet with as much love and passion as possible.
Cancers are natural nurturers, extremely loyal to their friends and family. In fact, your natural inclination towards helping and taking care of others makes you an ideal candidate for any work that lets you be of service.
You feel most satisfied when you feel you’ve made a difference in the lives of others. True success, however, means also taking care of yourself, Cancer. If you don’t put yourself first, whether in your career or personal relationships, you can easily become burned out and exhausted. Self-care is key.
Scorpios are almost obsessed with digging deep into any mystery in life. They desire truth in all things and don’t give up easily when there’s hidden information that they seek. You would be great at solving mysteries or getting to the bottom of things in your career, as you don’t lose focus when you’re interested in a certain topic.
Metaphysical work is also something that will satisfy your need for deeper, more meaningful experiences in life. You may also excel at healing work, as you are talented at connecting to others and discovering their hidden pains.
Pisces are the dreamers of the zodiac, spending a great deal of time in their head with their imagination and fantasies. Your natural ability to create visions and imaginative images in your head makes you extremely creative in many areas of your life.
Success for you means being able to work this creativity into your daily life, whether through your career or on your free time. Creative self-expression is something that you need in your life to let your emotions and thoughts flow freely. Singing, dancing, painting, writing – these are all activities that you naturally excel at.
Success for Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, & Sagittarius)
Fire signs (Aries,Leo, and Sagittarius) are passionate, creative, and instinctual. They follow their intuition and rarely stop to weigh all of the consequences before taking action or making a decision. A Fire sign’s creativity is its best feature, driving them toward unique and exciting experiences.
Your idea of success involves anything that speaks to your heart, and makes you feel excited.
As the first sign in the astrological calendar, Aries is the go-getter, the leader of the zodiac. Aries do what they want, when they want, and they aren’t the most receptive sign to authority or rules.
Success for you is any career, relationship, or life goal that gives you the freedom to assert your individuality. In other words, even if you are in an otherwise “successful” situation that makes you feel like you’re held back or controlled by others, you will almost certainly lose a part of your spark.
Leos are bubbly and lively, almost always the life of any party. However, it can be hard for Leos to stay focused on the hard work it takes to move towards success, as they’d much rather be having fun and enjoying life.
Your ideal form of success are any projects that you actually enjoy participating in, projects that spark your creativity and leave you feeling inspired. Once you become bored with a relationship, career, or any situation, it’s almost impossible for you to stay focused.
Sagittarians are future oriented, with their eye on the prize at all times. The problem, however, is that the prize often changes depending on a Sag’s mood. You can do anything you put your mind to, but you’re often shifting your goals and ideals – thanks to that Mutable placement.
You’re very flexible, and your ultimate path towards success will lead you to a situation that gives you the ability to indulge in your creativity, along with the flexibility to change your mind.
You make an excellent entrepreneur, as long as you find a project that keeps you focused and engaged long enough to see it through.
