Happy Monday! Alex of High Priestess of Brooklyn here with your Astro x Tarot Scopes for the week of June 29th through July 5th. Hold onto your hats for another wild week in the cosmos! The last of this eclipse series ends on July 5th with a Lunar Eclipse. It’s very likely you’ve experienced some major illumination and change with the previous two eclipses (June 5, 21) so you’re extra prepared for this one. What are the themes in your life that have been popping up for you during this last month? This last eclipse will focus your attention on what needs to be released now and lays the groundwork for the next 18 months of your life.
Yet, the eclipse is not the only astrological weather to be aware of this week. Just like with most of 2020, there’s a LOT happening. Of our personal planets, Mercury is still retrograde, Venus went direct last week and her cosmic yang, Mars, stations in Aries for the next six months. Part of why the eclipse series will be so important is that Mars will trace over their points too, inciting action on the illumination you’ve received. Knowing all this, find your intuitive guidance on experiencing the week ahead.
As a rising Capricorn/Gemini Sun/Scorpio Moon and a lifelong student of all things mystic, Alex Caiola, aka High Priestess of Brooklyn uses Tarot and Astrology as a language to interpret energy. She discovered her gift of Claircognizance (Psychic Knowing) in her ’20s, smack-dab in the middle of her ten-year career in Talent Management. Both careers have been centered around her innate ability to understand people. Over time, she realized her gift was taking esoteric, inaccessible wisdom, and breaking it down into practical advice. She founded High Priestess of Brooklyn with the mission of helping people achieve Modern Enlightenment. She believes everyone should be able to access the benefits of mysticism, not just the spiritually elite, so she created this platform to deliver curated spiritual wellness practices in a down-to-Earth format. Alex resides in Williamsburg, Brooklyn so the name High Priestess of Brooklyn was intuitive.
Consistent Tarot Practice has incredible potential to bring about self-awareness, empathy, and trust in your universal purpose. Alex is here to give that to you. But in order for Spiritual guidance to stick, we have to bring it down to Earth. Alex believes in prescribing the best solution for the situation, which may be a Salt bath, a tough conversation with your partner, a manifestation list, or all of the above. During these unprecedented times, she can help guide you through difficulties you might be facing and help you better understand and become the best version of yourself.
Cancer, (Queen of Pentacles):
It feels very natural for you to take care of others. In fact, its something that sparks joy for you, Cancer! If it’s safe for you to do so, host an outdoor cookout and bask in your season.
Leo (Eight of Swords, Reversed):
It’s time to examine the story you’re telling yourself, Leo. If you “can’t make time” or you’re “boxed in” by INSERT job/responsibilities/family, etc. HERE that will certainly solidify the self-fulfilling prophecy. Catch the mind in these actions and practice reframing where possible. With time and attention, you can reverse this habit.
Virgo (Five of Wands):
Organizing others is your dream and you’ll be asked to use your talents this week. You may be mediating a group of those who disagree so just remember to act with diplomacy. Stick to the facts, Virgo!
Libra (Queen of Wands):
I’ve been watching you, Libra! Your creative streak is on fire this season. You’re likely feeling all sorts of powerful in your prowess this week. And people are taking notes! Whether its praise or admiration, both will keep you motivated to keep doing the work.
Balance is the name of the game this week, Scorpio. You’ll need your batteries charged to handle all this eclipse energy, so focus on your health and wellness this week. That includes releasing toxicity (including negative people) from your life too. You’re expanding and don’t need ANY of that noise.
Sagittarius (The Magician, Reserved):
There’s a ton of manifestation power at your fingertips, but you haven’t figured out what you want to do with it yet! Releasing power with no direction ends up being somewhat of a fire-hose situation. Get’s the job done but with a lot of unnecessary force. Try focusing your energy this week in order to hone in on what you truly want before you unleash that power.
Capricorn (Strength, Reversed):
People look to you to lead with your practicality and “get shit done” attitude. But this week, you’re feeling much more vulnerable that your usual self. Why don’t you try a new way of leading: with vulnerability. People will enjoy seeing the softer side of you and you may get a warm response for doing so.
Aquarius (The Fool, Reversed):
You are so ready for your next journey, but holding on for dear life to what’s comfortable. Be honest with yourself on what it is you’re afraid of. The phrase “Leap and the net will appear” comes to mind. Trust that you’re ready to take this leap!
Pisces (The Star, Reversed):
You’re so good at helping others see the possibilities, Pisces. But with Neptune in retrograde, you may have a harder time translating these dreams. Can you phone an Aquarian to help you action your vision? This is their strong suit.
Aries (King of Wands, Reversed):
This Mars transit in your sign will activate you in particular, Aries. If you’re not careful, you may get testy or even rage against the machine. Remember that we need you to channel into productive energy for change. Deep breaths!
Taurus (Three of Cups):
You get by with a little help from your friends. It’s so unlike you to ask for help but this is what your crew is there for. They’re so ready to show up for you the way you show up for them. Put them in the game, Taurus!
Gemini (Seven of Wands, Reversed):
You’re learning a lot about your limits, Gemini. Push through what you thought was impossible before. While you may bore easily, you’re no quitter! Once you encounter the adversary, you’re that much closer to kicking its ass, Matrix-style.
