What’s in the stars for you this summer?
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
This bold cardinal sign symbolized by the Ram may benefit from a custom Emperor candle this summer, helping to expand your horizons, growth, and confidence. While Jupiter is in Aries until the end of October, it's a good time to take your business to the next level, receive recognition for hard work, or boost any existing creative project –– and the Emperor candle will help with just that, too!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Pluto is shaking things up for you this year and during the summer months, Taurus, encouraging transformation and rebirth. Focus on your long-term goals, honing your intuition, truth seeking, and even a bit of travel. If travel plans are in the works, try Swallow's Blood oil for protective vibes on the road and a Purple Wisdom candle for Divine insight and acquiring knowledge in the occult arts, like Hermetic Qabalah.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
During the summer months, this mutable air sign will love to make new connections, friendships, and relationships that spur growth and intellectual activity. And what's better at sparking up a good conversation than a new book? We recommend Jack Chanek's Tarot for Real Life (summer 2022), Madame Pamita's Baba Yaga's Book of Witchcraft (spring 2022), and Heather Greene's Lights, Camera, Witchcraft (winter 2021, which explores the history of witchcraft and cinema in the U.S.). These new witchy titles will keep the good vibes going as you swap occult stories under the full moon.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
This water sign symbolized by the crab may be ready to leave the past behind and establish new friendships (creative, platonic, or otherwise). As with all relationships, boundaries are important, as well as truly healing from the past before jumping right into something new. Try a Love Healing candle or do a weekly Love Healing incense cleansing/meditation to make sure your heart is taken care of all season and beyond.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
This fiery lion sign may want to reevaluate notions of individual success and look at things from an altruistic or a group perspective this summer. You have both Jupiter and Chiron on your side, contributing to both wisdom, boldness, and good luck. Make the most of it by applying your brightest side to helping others and using your enthusiastic talents for the greater good. As Solar Blast candle or Solar Plexus Chakra (Third Chakra) candle can help to boost your assertiveness, self-esteem, and self-discipline this season, allowing you to make the most of your natural abilities.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
This earth sign ruled by the Maiden, or the Earth Goddess, may be thinking about securing financial stability this summer. If you'd like to pave a way towards long-term financial success, you may want to do some magic involving first clearing out anything blocking money flow with a Money Uncrossing Candle and then bringing it to you in abundance with the Money Draw Candle. Be sure to take time for yourself (self-care, ritual baths with our Prosperity formula may be a good idea) and remember that you have the power to not only provide for yourself, but also strategically plan for big future successes at this time. Make the most of it!
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
While Jupiter transits your solar seventh house, work, financial partnerships, and more grounded love partnerships may be on your mind this season (until late October). While you're supported in these arenas and offering much of your energy to others, airy, beauty-loving Libra, may benefit from some solo time, too. Without indulging too much, treat yourself to the beauty of the natural world with long walks this summer, self-care baths (like this Love Goddess bath), and candle magic spells like the Venus Candle to reign in beauty, love, and financial prosperity or Lakshmi Candle to invoke the Hindu Goddess of prosperity, love, abundance, and beauty.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
New opportunities, increased energy and creativity, and making new connections are all in the stars for you this summer. This water sign symbolized by the scorpion may benefit from a creative spell candle like Song of the Elder Goddess candle to help channel new inspiration and success in the arts, as well as a Divine Muse bath. Also, try incorporating ritual baths into your weekly routine (learn more about that here from fellow Scorpio and witch Carmen).
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Adventure-seeking Sagittarius values freedom, creative expression, and living life on their own terms, but all that spontaneity means an active effort must be put on health, well-being, and home life, too. This fire sign ruled by Jupiter gets a cosmic boost to help with home endeavors, comfort, and also long-term business projects, so why not try a House Blessing candle to hone in on the good vibes and make ample room for blessings this summer. The candle will help you put your house in order and keep it blessed with good energy and peace while you continue to enhance your inner self and develop long-term, beneficial routines in your daily life.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Rediscovery of passions, renewed motivation, and a dreamy summer awaits you Capricorn! This earth sign should make the best of it by planning a fun trip with family or friends to go exploring and discover new things. Neptune and Uranus are on your side to lighten things up and allow for inspiration along the way. For an extra boost in the arenas of luck, joy, and love (and to keep the good times rolling), try a Love & Happiness candle or the Success Candle to help you achieve your goals and triumph in any situation.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You're all about improvement this season, whether it be in your personal life, family life, financially, or in your friendships. This air sign may receive unexpected blessings, so to help conjure that extra luck, try a Fast Luck candle, the Double Fast Luck incense formula (also good for drawing in money), or a Fortuna Candle to invoke Lady Luck to turn the wheel of fortune in your favor. But keep your intentions practical and grounded during spell work and stay focused on the literal actions/changes necessary to attain all your heart desires, too.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
This water sign is ready for expansion, new opportunities, and a touch of adventure this season. An Empress Candle is great for magnifying all that self-love and confidence, while wearing Crown of Success oil can help keep the haters at bay and off your back, so they don't interfere with your success. Keep your enthusiasm high this summer, use your newfound confidence to inspire others and bring about positive change, but also remain grounded in practical matters.
