Happy Monday! Alex of High Priestess of Brooklyn here with your Astro x Tarot Scopes for the week of June 15th through the 21st. The theme of the week: shedding our layers. Everyone’s favorite retrograde, Mercury, is retrograding in Cancer on June 18th; compounding with the four other planets in Retrograde right now (Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, and Venus). To make matters even more interesting, we have a Solar Eclipse coming on the Summer Solstice, June 21st. This is the second eclipse in a three-part series which will round out early July. TLDR: This is a time of transformational reflection. Now more than ever, we have a chance to truly examine our inner health and we may be surprised by what we find deep within us. While we do so, Mercury retrograding in Cancer means we will run more sensitive as we excavate. Identify your boundaries before your claws snap to attention. Just like Crabs shed their hard outer layer in order to grow, we must be vulnerable and exposed to become who we’re truly meant to be. Below are your personal predictions consulting both Astrology (science) and Tarot (intuition).
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.
Gemini (Page of Wands):
You’re an agent for change, Gemini! While Mercury in retrograde may not seem like the right time to charge forward, you have an arsenal of understanding under your belt. Remember, what seems obvious to you isn’t necessarily for others. Could you talk it out with a friend who needs the inspiration?
Cancer (Two of Cups, reversed):
With Mercury retrograde in your sign, you might be feeling unsupported in your significant partnerships, Cancer. This is a big deal for you. If this is the case, be honest with your S.O. about what you need from them. If you’re single, seek harmony and balance within yourself.
Leo (Queen of Cups):
Empathy reigns supreme for you this week. Listen, seek to understand, and act for the humanity of the common good. You’re uniquely positioned for compassionate leadership.
Virgo (Three of Pentacles):
Resources, resources, resources. You’re no stranger to an online class, Virgo. So if there’s a concept you don’t quite understand, enroll in a session, or five, and school yourself. Just remember to account for technical difficulties #mercuryretrograde
Libra (King of Wands, reversed):
Something about the big picture is stifling your creativity. Saving the world takes thinking outside the box, but it cannot be done in one day, by one person. Break your vision down into smaller pieces to get your arms around it.
Scorpio (8 of Wands, reversed):
Once you’re able to quiet the outside world Scorpio, your mind will come alive with ideas. If that’s difficult to do this week, try doing a creative yet mindless activity, like coloring or color-coding your bookshelf to shake thoughts loose.
Sagittarius (Death, reversed):
You’re on the precipice of major transformation, Sagittarius. It’s likely you’ve been feeling this coming for a while. If you’re nervous or fearful, it will make the ending much harder. The answer lies in what you’re not willing to admit.
Your perspective will shift dramatically this week, Capricorn. This will be a week of observation vs action. Note what comes to you as your reflections will shape you well past this moment in time.
Aquarius (The Star, reversed):
You’re motivated to help but could be feeling a little cynical on what you can change. Remember that we’re ushering in the age of Aquarius over the course of this and next year, a transition you’re uniquely qualified to guide us through. Get in the game because we need you!
Pisces (Wheel of Fortune, reversed):
Mars is in your sign, giving your superpower activation as the Spiritual Warrior. This will heighten your awareness and observations. Help others see the otherworldly signs to fuel action.
Aries (Queen of Wands, reversed):
Heavy lies the crown, Aries. There are days and weeks where it’s tough to show up. Recognize when you’re running on fumes and call your favorite Gemini to have a passionate conversation with; you’ll be lit up again in no time.
Taurus (Ten of Cups, reversed):
You may have recently found out what’s truly important to you, you know, what life is all about. It’s rare for you to feel so emotive, so you may not be sharing it openly. Remember that your positive mood is infectious – sing it from the rooftops (or at least in the shower), Taurus! While you’re here, check out these six apps that will supercharge your spirituality.
