Aries is the sign of recovery. The warrior rises at dawn with an intention set in stone—integrity and strength of character drive the actions that are in tune with universal spirit. Now is the time to dig up the pieces that have been buried in the mud. The dust has not yet settled, the fight has only just begun. Remember what you came here to do—the Earth is giving you the time to do it.

Audioscopes for Aries Season 2020

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Your fight through the thick undergrowth, densely populating the ground between the trees, hasn’t been for your own benefit alone. As you clear a path through the thick foliage—light in one hand, guide in the other—you set down the steps that others may follow. Someone had to go first, and your wildest impulses are now met with the recovery of purpose. We are all one and yet we are all many. The energy that drives you brings forth the path that is necessary for expansive recollection of what has once been and will be again. Don’t fear what is to be revealed beyond the next field of vision—you have ample practice pushing forward through the shadows of the unknown.

Audio Tip: Find inspiration for a new song from something you have overcome.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Spring is at your door. What will you plant in your garden this year, once the fog clears up and the rain begins to fall? This is a time for new roots to take hold. The ground no longer accepts the same seeds from last year’s bloom—the environment is different now, and so are you. Take this time to understand in what ways your heart has changed over the matter. From the soft soil of your solar plexus a new seed begins to bloom, even now, as it has yet to take root. Feed it. Let it grow within and extend its branches out into the open, ringing in the new dawn. You will give this seed a home soon.

Audio Tip: Try out a new creative practice – style of music, video project, or visual interpretation of a song. 

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

The narrative is changing. The same stories you’ve told before have new endings, the characters you’ve known have grown. You cannot keep giving us the same message day in, day out with the same tenacity as before. Your heart has moved, like an iceberg slowly treading water, but you’re not sure where it’s headed. That’s ok. Let things shift around you and find the clues within the lyrics of your song. Write the lines out for yourself, perform behind closed doors—get the sound right. You are your own audience right now, and you’re perfecting a new song. 

Audio: Write a new song with a theme you’ve used previously, but from a different perspective.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

The groove you find yourself in is dictated by the people around you who play the hedges, guiding the needle down the track, filling in the background noise. You can only see as far as you dare to tread, the distance dictated by the voices you entertain when night falls. Are you dedicated to your practice, or to the people that fill in the chorus? Have you let your sound be taken over by the background, afraid to tread ahead alone? Only you know if you’re ready to shed comfort for the vibrancy resonating in your core. Only you can pull out the shard of light that is lodged in your throat.

Audio Tip: Play a song in the style of one of your closest friends. 

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

The sweat dripping down your back isn’t the only thing you miss about the dance floor. In every moment of movement, there is your energy meeting their energy meeting the universal energy through resonant flow. Your body slices through the air like jelly, your feet carve out new paths on the floor. Do you need a partner to keep dancing? Or can you negotiate the rhythm alone? The sound of your heels hitting up against the floor is for you alone—can you keep dancing if there is no one left to see it? 

Audio Tip: Collaborate on a project with someone new.

VIRGO  (August 23 – September 22)

You can decimate the particles of pestilence with the wrath of a self-convicted sun. You can scrub your hands raw on the grindstone, ridding every last flaw. Revealing the bone cold truth of every living moment will satisfy the urge to cleanse, but only for a moment. Skin grows back. Cells, too. Tomorrow, a new threat will rise, as sure as the little hairs on the back of your neck that will respond. You need to cleanse on a different level—not with bar soap or scrubs, not with sage or crystals, not with light rays or photons. Deep in the crevices of your bones there lies your enemy: memory.

Audio Tip: Record a hymn to the energetic field of your choice.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Would you refuse to put a seed to flower knowing that the bloom will fall come autumn? The world follows a natural rhythm, a spring, a blossom, a fall, a renewal—who are we to get in the way? The seed that is yearning to bear fruit doesn’t bemoan the renewal of its offering. Trees are gifted with the absence of self-knowledge: you have to contemplate loss before you begin. Is this burden worth the practice, or will you choose to hold back your desire, waiting for a better spring? You may have the world’s worth of time to wait on, but only if you can keep the window open and the sun shining in.

Audio Tip: Release a pre-recorded song that you shelved.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Test out each square on the bedroom floor. Jump up and down on the softer areas, listening for cracks between the tiles. There are places where the foundation has corroded and needs to be replaced, while other weaknesses in the ground can be mended through care and practice. Make your decisions now about how to best deal with the creaks and cracks beneath your feet. A solid platform is necessary for movement, and no one will ensure you—this work is your own. Cutting away the rot comes first; the band-aid is ripped and the wounds laid bare. This is a time of mourning. Next comes the setting of new boards.

Audio Tip: Practice a new percussion instrument this month. 

SAGITTARIUS  (November 22 – December 21)

Playing aloof is a luxury for those who can afford to let opportunities pass them by. As you sharpen your arrows on the grindstone, restring your bow, watch patiently from the vantage point of the sidelines as your opponents take the floor, you’ll notice no one is looking over anymore. The time to bide your time has ended, and if you want to recoup your losses you’ll have to step into the challenge and claim your space on the ring’s floor. Aim your bow at the target you’ve intended, step back, breathe into it, and let your shot ring true.

Audio Tip: Ask to join a tour that you think is out of your reach.

CAPRICORN  (December 22 – January 19)

The pretty little boxes you’ve built have been decimated by fire, buried by ice, and laid bare by the storm. But you haven’t walked away empty-handed. You’ve learned how to set a foundation right, what materials to use, who you can call on to help secure the roof. Knowledge is a much sturdier material than metal, and now is your time to rebuild. Let the grief refine you, sanding down your edges into fine pin-pricks of desire. There is more for you here than the field you have known, but first you have to let it burn, the soil turning over for new roots to take hold.

Audio Tip: Let your grief be given a song.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

You step up to the plate, bat in hand, weighing down the options as you stare down the ball. You can’t let your swing flow when you are trying to consider the airflow, the emotional state of the pitcher, your teammates leg on the base, your coaches rough breath, the texture of the dirt between your toes. You have to focus on your grip, the tension in your muscles, the way your arm moves through the swing as it has done countless times before. Correct contact is directly dependent on trust. Let it flow.

Audio Tip: Record a jam session. Play it back. Build on it. 

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

This is the time of reaping. Your fields have all gone to pasture, the fruits of your labor are sitting in store, the sweat that has poured down your back is now dry salt shards. Are you satisfied? Is this the same row you’d like to walk down next season, or are you ready to put down the plow, hoping for a reason to look up at the sun instead of down at your shadow? Celebrate this moment of necessary respite, as the sun goes down and the herald crows. The sun is setting on an old way, and in this night you will dream anew.

Audio Tip: Create a healing track for yourself only.
