I woke up this morning cringing from the memory of the crap I came out with at last night’s party that a Tiger friend had invited me to. Hardly comforted by the fact that most of what I said was astrologically accurate; it was, at the same time wholly inappropriate and on occasions, out rightly rude. But I was completely unaware because I had a captive audience that was excited to hear what the inebriated psychic had to say about their astrological combination, their partners’, children and what their cards said… So I told them. I’m honest anyway, but when plied with an ample supply of cocktails, even when I’m right, I’m just wrong maaaaan!
Rat – Sometimes you just have to do that thing you have been desperate to avoid doing, but when the time has come, it has come. No amount of procrastination or avoidance can keep you from making the cut – so do it quickly. Put yourself first.
Ox – Suddenly, the reins fall away and this Ox is free creature. Now what you do is completely down to you, so take some time, collect your reserves of energy and decide on an adventure you want to experience.
Tiger – Get involved with life rather than speculating on the sidelines or just living through your professional role. You, dear Tiger, know better than most that an unlived life is no life at all, so make the adjustments necessary to reawaken to the life that exhilarates you.
Rabbit – Of you are working towards a specific end point, know that you are progressing well, even if you do not see the results of your labor as you might expect. Just keep on going exactly as you are, add a tad more faith and voila, success!
Dragon – Being the master of project management, getting past the finish line is an easy feat for you, so now, you want to get to that line in style; so plan it and be present so you can enjoy every second of the glory.
Snake – If you have been pushing and pushing but you are not getting the reaction you expect, a different direction may be called for. Consider the repercussions of that road if what you had wanted actually panned out, is that really what you would have wanted?
Horse – Holding to the past, to what could have been or to someone who has already left in consciousness does nothing but inflate your fear and deflate your trust in the universes abundance. Know that joy is just around the river bend.
Sheep – Stopping to congratulate yourself at every juncture is fine, but at least get there first. Meditate to align your energy and then take action from that place. Discipline becomes unnecessary when you are connected to your source; there will be no stopping you.
Monkey – Explore your goals and your current station in life because there are some changes that are necessary that you have not given attention to. Put in the mental work, it is even more fruitful than the physical type.
Rooster – A return to innocence for you this month as you experience feelings as if for the first time. Everything feels fresh and soft and light and fluffy. It’s a beautiful time of discovery that you may have thought was over. Let your inner child play.
Dog – Relying on your will power and ability to influence is all very well and good, except when you feel that you may be losing yourself in order to get the job done. As a Dog sign, integrity, loyalty and equality are the most important things.
Boar – Put your focus where it needs to be, on the task at hand and take it away from yourself as it is nothing but inhibiting. You are a child of the universe so you are as individual as the next. That is all you need to know.
Rat – Be careful with your finances and resources this month as auspices suggest it is not a good time to make investments or commit your time to any projects. Ask for more time to think things over then wait for inspiration to come to you.
Ox – If things are not going the way you would like, consider the attitude with which you have been approaching things. The law of attractions says we are constantly creating our lives through out thoughts, feelings and vibrations. Analyze and adjust accordingly.
Tiger – If you have the means to do what your heart desires but are struggling with other people’s objections or fighting your own expectations, be smart and grant yourself freedom. No Tiger likes to be caged and no Tiger ever should.
Rabbit – Let yourself get a little crazy this month; do something totally different and unexpected or take a risk because it is likely to pay off. Realize that there is so much still to discover and set out on a journey to do so.
Dragon – Despite what other people are saying, do what you feel is right. Look at doors before you and consider the potential outcomes; choose the one that seems a little quirky yet, most limitless, as your power to manifest is high at this time.
Snake – Do not fall into the trap of feeling sorry for yourself or believing you have lost your Mojo, because you haven’t. This is still your year. Sometimes, delays work in your benefit but you only realize in hindsight. Trust that all is happening as it should.
Horse – The match is now over and both fighter can return to their corners and lick their wounds. Whether you won or not is irrelevant, right now, you just need to focus on healing and recuperation. Just know your voice will be heard in the end.
Sheep – A connection to your mother or nurturing maternal person is indicated this month. You may be visited by spirit and feel a loving presence by your side. This will give you the confidence to achieve new creative feats that even you would not have believed.
Monkey –Do not keep going when your mind struggles to focus, because your shadow aspect may come to the fore and sometimes this can be destructive. Recognize when you are under stress and need to take some time out to relax your mind.
Rooster – A positive month to make investments, handle property negotiations and also find new work. It is a very productive time where much can be done in a short time especially when taking actions that have a long term outcome in mind.
Dog – If you are being treated unjustly, it is not wise to hammer on about the unfairness of the situation, especially to mutual friends or the equivalent. Instead, let it pass over you as you focus on removing yourself quickly and smartly.
Boar – Slap bang in the middle of all the drama is secretly where you like to be, because that is where all of the action is; this month will be right up your alley as you will find yourself with much responsibility which leads you to have some exhilarating experiences.
Rat – More self-care and self-nurturing is required as you may be too externally focused at this time. Remember to give attention to your own heart and spirit as doing so revitalizes you and everyone around you. Champion yourself first.
Ox – In this peak of summer month, you will feel as if the sun is shining directly on you and only for you. You may be thrust into the spotlight or singled out for some sort of award. It is a time to reap the rewards for your previous efforts.
Tiger – Despite everything that you have tried to do, you may feel as if you are losing the battle so now you must change your approach. Spend time by yourself and do not ask others for advice. You need to feel out what is best for you alone.
Rabbit – Although you may feel trapped within difficult circumstances, know that you always have more freedom than you think. It means making decisions that impact a variety of people, as well as yourself, but you must do it. Extricate yourself now and analyse what landed you there in the first place.
Dragon – Dealing with an unusual and sticky situation, you may have struggled to find a win-win solution but your good intentions have served you well as the universe may step in with some divine intervention. This may release some long-held tension.
Snake – Energy is all psychological so if you are lacking in it, consider what you are focusing on mentally as well as the other factors. In what ways are you confining yourself? This question will give you the key to freeing yourself back up.
Horse – Take this time to rest and relax as you have been through a tough period of hard work. Reward yourself as you organise the next phase of your master plan. Then, when you are ready, get out there and make it happen.
Sheep – Having to deal with friction forces you to out of your boundaries and into the fire where you reveal what you’re made of which often surprises everybody. It also makes you confront what you have been avoiding. Transformation is imminent.
Monkey – If you do not want to bring out your feelings to discuss them with friends, at least be honest about them with yourself. Clarify where you stand so you can actively do something about your situation.
Rooster – Trying to achieve perfection creates a never ending tension within you because you will never manage it. Actually, you are perfect and whole already, isn’t it time you took that on board and started to live for the fun of living?
Dog – Remove the emotion from the situation to view it with as much objectivity as possible as you may find yourself in an influence-able position. Come at it with the best of intentions and the universe will mirror those intentions in your own life.
Boar – Whatever you are working towards, it requires continued effort and energy to remain on track. Also, keep an eye out for some additional training that might help further improve your project, as your standards are so high.

“You can’t stamp out individuality – there’s too many of us.”
– Cindy Lauper
When the potency of the Snake’s earth joins the Crab’s silent waters, presence meets creativity giving these creatures the nerve to promote themself and their ideas even when they are ahead of their time and out of the norm. There is much overlap with these two signs; both are cold-blooded creatures that are sophisticated, quietly confident and desire to take charge. The Snake comes from a more cerebral place and the Cancerian, the more sensual, so with two different types of data flowing, the processed information tends to be broad, full and smart. Despite both of these signs being quite ambitious in their own right, the Cancerian’s huge heart manages to overrule the more ruthless aspects that often lay dormant, which makes them prioritise romance, love and sensual conquest. It is for this reason, work only takes precedence when they have found and are happy in a romantic partnership. In fact, if they can find a Monkey or a Rooster partner, their work life tends to excel prolifically because they will know how to promote their talents perfectly.
There are many singer song writers of this combination: Cindy Lauper, Jason Mraz, June Carter Cash, Bebe Buell, even Liv Tyler sings; this combination is a soulful creature that feels alive when it is expressing the contents of its heart. Cindy Lauper has said, “When I sing I don’t feel like it’s me. I feel I am fabulous, like I’m 10 feet tall. I am the greatest. I am the strongest. I am Samson. I’m whoever I want to be.” When they feel this empowered, they want to leverage it to lift others to higher state of consciousness. As Jason Mraz has said, “Music is a weapon in the war against unhappiness.”
The women of this combination are soft, sensual and charming. Their sense of humour comes as a surprise, especially as they look so cultured and sophisticated; nobody expects them to be as spicy as they are. Of course, there are those Snake-Cancerian women who choose to be as spicy on the outside as they are on the inside. Singer Cindy Lauper has said, “Humour is a great vehicle for getting a message across. If you get too serious, you could die of starch.”
Model and Singer Bebe Buell dubbed a “legendary beauty” by the industry, she was also the first fashion model to pose for Playboy and was fired by Ford Modelling agency for it. Not that it stopped her, she signed with Wilhelmina and continued to work. In fact, Mick Jagger (see Sheep Leo for Mick Jagger) said that she was who he would have accompany him “when I dine with royalty.” These women are intelligent, classy and have a raw youthful sex appeal something akin to innocence, without being innocent. Talking about her daughter, Bebe Buell said, “It’s so beautiful to watch her ’cause she loves every second of performing and just glows. She’s so brilliant.” She takes after her mother in more ways than many may know as she shares her mother’s astrological combination. Talking about her mother, Liv Tyler said, “…She had all these beautiful clothes and makeup, and in the bathroom all her jewelry was pinned to the wall… When she went out, she would always say, “Don’t get into my stuff!” and the first thing I would do was go mad dressing up.”
When these women really fall for someone, they cannot help but put them completely first; when Liv Tyler found out the truth about her parentage, Buell removed herself from the public forum and functioned behind the scenes. Similarly, when June Carter Cash partnered with Johnny Cash (see Monkey-Pisces for Johnny Cash), she too removed herself. Talking about this she said, “I’ve been really happy just traveling and being Mrs. Johnny Cash all these years. But I’m also really happy and surprised that someone wanted me to make another album, and I’m real proud of what I’ve done.” As she should be, the Snake-Cancerian’s talent is such that it cannot be oppressed for long; even Bebe Buell continues to perform.
The men of this combination are interesting to know as they present like they are of the aristocracy, upstanding, well-read, authoritative… but more discerning types soon realize that this is just another Snake projecting another image to be seen to have “value” that they don’t actually believe in themselves. In actuality, they are rougher, gruffer and ready to serve their own needs first. Naturally, introverted, they struggle with how they are going to make an impact whilst maintaining their subtle air of cool. Milo Ventimiglia has said, “I’m tough on the outside and soft on the inside […] I’m really a shy guy… I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I don’t do anything … but I bowled like a crazy mother…” As previously mentioned, this combination prioritizes love above all else, so it comes as no surprise that Jason Mraz said, “I want to be surrounded by women, I want to be snuggled and cuddled and pampered.”
All Snake combinations are born teachers, more specifically, mentors. They get a kick out of altering people perceptions, getting them to believe in themselves and serving as inspirations. Yes, they like to be looked up to too, it is the best way to serve the Snake’s ego, but that aside, you cannot argue with their results; they inspire people to get out there, get involved and create change. Talking about her activism, Cindy Lauper said, “”I’m a bra-burner from way back!”
With a powerful connection to all things spiritual, concepts such as the law of attraction or cosmic ordering just make sense to them and they are able to use them easily in a concrete way. Speaking about letting go of one’s physical attachments, Jason Mraz said, “Surrender to life itself and you’ll just be rewarded with so many things.” Despite all of the ego serving behavior, image projection and materialism that Snake signs indulge in, there is also an intrinsic understanding of the futility of these things; it is only when this realization penetrates the paradigm through which they view their daily lives that they let go and experience true freedom. This reconnects them to the cosmic flow of life, that stream of well-being that brings them a constant barrage of blessings whilst highlighting the beauty of all the smaller things that they missed before. Cindy Lauper has said, “You always have to remember – no matter what you’re told – that God loves all the flowers, even the wild ones that grow on the side of the highway.”
