July 2019 Tarotscope

We’re half way through the year! And what a year it’s been so far! July is all about intensity, identity, and change. This month is providing us with opportunities to evolve and grow into the being we were created to be. Participation in this change is the only option presented to us. Please use this time to create the life and world you want, now and in the future. This is not an idle month; it’s a month of directed action. Join organizations and groups of like-minded people and commit– work to bring about the changes our world so dearly needs. Our lives depend on it.

For All of Us:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm but because of those who look at it without doing anything.” Margaret Mead and Albert Einstein

“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran

THE RULES FOR BEING HUMAN

You will receive a body. Like it or hate it, it’s the only thing you’re sure to keep the rest of your life. * You will learn lessons. You’re enrolled full time in “Life on Planet Earth” school.  You’re responsible for all of your actions and inactions. As you know better, you’ll do better. * There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of experimentation. * A lesson is repeated until learned. It’s presented in various forms until you learn it, then you can go on to the next lesson. * If you don’t learn easy lessons, they get harder. External problems are a reflection of your internal state. Pain is how the Universe gets your attention. * You’ll know you’ve learned a lesson when your actions and results change. Wisdom is a result of learning from your experiences.* Others are only mirrors of you. You can’t love or hate something about another unless it reflects something you love or hate in yourself. * What you make of your life is up to you. Life provides the canvas, you do the painting. * You always get what you want. Your subconscious determines what and whom you attract. The only way to know what you want is to see what you have and don’t have. * Your answers lie within you. You know more than you’ve heard, read or been told. Just look within and listen, trust and obey. * You will forget all this. * You can remember any time you want.

 

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) “Every beauty and greatness in this world is created by a single thought or emotion. Everything we see today, made by past generations, was, before its appearance a thought in the mind or an impulse in the heart. The supreme teachings that changed the course of humanity were the ideas of a person whose genius separated them from their environment.” Kahlil Gibran

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) “Knowledge and understanding are life’s faithful companions who will never prove untrue to you.  For knowledge is your crown, and understanding your staff; and when they are with you, you can possess no greater treasures.” Kahlil Gibran

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) In keeping with the twin aspect of your sign, you have two quotes to ponder. “He who understands you is greater kin to you than your own brother.  For even your own kindred may neither understand you nor know your true worth.” Kahlil Gibran

And

“Know your own true worth and you shall not perish.” Universal

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) All things in this creation exist within you, and all things in you exist within creation; there is no border between you and the closest things, and there is no distance between you and the farthest things, and all things from the lowest to the loftiest, are within you as equal things– in one aspect of you are found all the aspects of existence.” Kahlil Gibran

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) “If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.” Henry David Thoreau

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) “We struggle to find life outside ourselves, unaware that the life we are seeking is within. The true light is that which emanates from within and reveals the secrets of the heart to the soul, making it happy and contented with life.” Universal

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) “This is the purpose of life– to get what you want. There are deeper things, but this is fun.” Karl Lagerfeld

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they don’t find them– they make them.” G. B. Shaw

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) “Love is the only freedom in the world because it so elevates the spirit that the laws of humanity and the phenomena of nature do not alter its course. God has given you a spirit with wings with which to soar. Use it to love and honor yourself.” Khalil Gibran

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) “It is enough simply to pay attention and trust the process: Whoever comes are the right people. Whatever happens is the only thing that could have happened. When it starts, is the right time. When it’s over, it’s over.” The Daily Guru

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) “A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.  Believing is a fine thing, but placing those beliefs into action is a test of strength and courage.” Universal

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) “If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.”  Henry David Thoreau

May 2019 Tarotscope

Wow, we’re a third of the way into this year! May is a fertile month, providing us with opportunities to plant seeds and grow exciting new ways of succeeding in the world. Please use this time to create the life you want, now and in the future. This is also the month of the people and their power. Join organizations and groups of like-minded people and work to bring about the changes our world so dearly needs. Our lives depend on it.

For All of Us:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

 “I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran

 

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Remember playing on the seesaw when you were in grammar school? It was all about awareness and balance. Which are what you’ll need as you embrace your true gift– learning and practicing a new way of appreciating yourself. Sometimes what is really correct in a situation can only be determined by establishing a new inner “truth meter”.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) This is a time of subtle challenges and major changes for you. At this time, your awareness of these challenges and changes is more advanced than your ability to clearly articulate them. “Listen between the lines” and pay careful attention to your inner voice.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Different, unusual, and strange are words that have often been used to describe you. Unique, inventive, and creative can also be used. The difference is the emphasis you place on them. Remember, being different doesn’t make you defective. Some of the brightest and most successful people in our world are deep thinkers who rarely started out as part of the “in crowd”.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Maturity, discipline and responsibility came early for you as a child.  Self-esteem, self-value and self-confidence are still playing catch up. It’s time to shed those old “skins” and admit to yourself what everyone else is already aware of– how important and powerful you are in your world.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) This is a magical time for you. You’re getting a refresher course in the correct use of will and what it produces. Willingness is like laughter– use it and the world moves with you. Willfulness is like rust on a spigot– difficult to use and nothing positive flows from it. Lightly focus on what you want, trust it to come to you and enjoy watching life flow your way.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) These last few years have been interesting. You’re someone who can see what others can’t conceive of yet. Because of this, your natural sensitivity and vulnerability to the whims and wishes of others isn’t as exposed as it used to be. The best way to use this milestone? Begin carefully laying the groundwork for your next projects– they have a great chance of being successful.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Self-esteem is the lesson and the reward for you at this time. It’s important that you encourage yourself to honor one of your greatest gifts– your uniqueness.  Comparing yourself to others only diminishes you and your creative spirit. Focus on and nurture your value by following the advice of one of the patron “saint” of individuality, Jimi Hendrix– “Let your freak flag fly!”

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Maturity, discipline, and responsibility came early for you as a child. Self-esteem, self-value and self-confidence are still playing catch up. It’s time to shed those old “skins” and admit to yourself what everyone else is already aware of– how important and powerful you are in your world.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Intense and impatient, you’ll benefit from lightening up and going with the flow. Otherwise, you’re likely to become overly emotional and there may be a tendency to try and force situations. The most positive way to get things to go your way is to simply ask– people really do want to help you get what you want.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) This is a lucky period for you and your magnetism is at an all-time high. Be observant and you’ll spot the opportunities available to you, as well as develop the discipline and habits you’ll need in order to help make your hopes, wishes and dreams come true.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) You’re filled with immense potential and enormous impatience at the same time! Here’s a simple exercise to help you learn to wait productively– plant a few seeds in fertile soil. As you ‘wait’ for them to grow and flower, you’ll learn the value of patience by ‘encouraging’ the process as you water, nurture and tend the seeds. This powerful, natural experience and the lessons learned from it will stay with you forever.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Are you properly using your energy or is it improperly using you? You’ve grown more perceptive and you’re processing information at a much faster rate than in the past. Focus less on “getting things done” and more on interacting with others and allow the new input to direct your flow of creative energy into newer and more rewarding forms of creative expression.

April 2019 Tarotscope

Yea– it’s Spring! Get out and enjoy the loveliness. Gather rosebuds, tulips, and rainbows– they’re all reflections of you and the infinite possibilities of life and joy available to you.

For All of Us:

“This is the purpose of life– to get what you want. There are deeper things, but this is fun.” Karl Lagerfeld

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

 “I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) The words power and success describe your motivation, especially now. They are synonymous with your innate abilities to discover new areas and conquer whatever obstacles come your way. The Universe is acknowledging you and is providing you with the opportunity to accept your Life Mastery. With grace and gratitude, accept this gift and enjoy the experience.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) It’s an unpredictable time. Please remind yourself to be flexible and take a look at life through the various lenses presented to you. Make a “wish list” and check off the things that have already come your way. Pay special attention to what’s on the horizon and allow what’s no longer important to fall away from you.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Even though your ruling planet, Mercury, the planet of communication, is no longer retrograde, it’s still wise for you to keep your own counsel at this time because all of the facts are not in yet. When the time is right to speak up, you’ll be the person everyone will want to listen to. Let your natural ability to sort the truth from fantasy work for you during this period.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) You’re use to supplying everyone else’s needs, but now it’s time for you to stand back and take care of yourself. Please give in to this need to nurture yourself, even if it doesn’t make the kind of sense you’re used to. Take some time off, reflect on your life, and let things unfold naturally.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Acceptance of the changes change brings is often difficult. However, that’s your assignment now– so go with the flow and allow the Universe to be your travel guide. Relax and enjoy the opportunity for serendipitous gifts and opportunities to fall in your lap.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your message is similar to THE LOVERS. Even though your ruling planet, Mercury, the planet of communication, is no longer retrograde, the whirlwind of energy swirling around you is still at full force. It’s still wise for you to keep your own counsel and let the dust settle. When the time is right, everything will fall neatly into place and you’ll be acknowledged for your clarity and wisdom.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Your message is similar to THE CHARIOT. You’re always taking care of others. Let life take care of you for a while. Balancing energy in this way will give you a more refined sense of your value and your place in the world.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) You’re adept at showing the world what you want them to see. So adept that you’ve gotten used to hiding your true face from yourself but, now it’s time for the inner you to show itself. Go within, meditate, discover yourself. You’re in a new growth cycle, so be sensitive to your needs and let the natural expansive momentum reveal your next steps.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Look into the mirror and repeat after me, “I am the glory of the Divine made manifest.”  You’ve just consciously acknowledged your brilliance, your power, and your connection to Divine Grace. Take a look at your life and notice all you have become and all you have now. More expansion and abundance are coming. Express gratitude as you celebrate and honor yourself and your connection to Grace.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Yes, one end of the string is around your finger and the other end is around the world (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPb_wDRIvrI). How would your life be different if you could afford to do anything you wanted to do? This is a time of magic and miracles, so give it some thought and start making plans because that kind of capability is actually at hand. With joy and gratitude, notice how the opportunities are opening up for you and take advantage of them.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Your message is similar to THE WORLD. You’re under a lucky sign now– the rainbow. It’s a sign of blessings and good fortune and it represents the Divine covenant with humanity. You are very blessed at this time and the “storm” is ending. You will receive help from an unexpected source. Keep your focus on your goal and accept acknowledge that Divine Guidance is there to lend you a hand.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Your ruling planet, Neptune, is in its own sign now, so it’s important to be clear about what is fact and what is wishful thinking. This is a perfect time to study the gray areas– those subtle, nuanced places between the polar opposites of Black and White. You’ll be amazed at what you discover and you’ll love the stability that comes from the experience.

March 2019 Tarotscope

The weather is a reflection of our times. March has come in like a lion; let’s all pray it goes out like a lamb. Added to this, Mercury, the planet of communication will be retrograde and in partnership with Neptune, the planet of intuition and illusion until March 28th. Please remember that all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur during this period. If you can, hold off on buying (or leasing) any big ticket items. It’s also a good idea to triple check any and all plans you make. This is an excellent time for research and going on retreats, as those things that are usually hidden from view, show themselves more easily during a Mercury Retrograde period. Wait until Mercury goes direct before making any big decisions and enacting any major plans.

For All of Us:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

 “We convince by our presence. Keep showing up.” Walt Whitman”

“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Sometimes it takes more courage to keep quiet than it does to speak. While you think those around you could benefit from your taking charge, its best if you stand back and let them exercise their free will as they learn by dealing with the results of their experiences.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Your message is similar to THE MAGICIAN’s. It’s time for you to visit the inner landscape and meditation is the best way to get there. As you expand your inner horizons, meditation will help you attain these invaluable gifts– peace of mind and a conscious connection to the Divine.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Mercury is retrograde and in partnership with the planet Neptune, the planet of intuition. Mercury is also your ruling planet, so I recommend wearing pretty socks and getting pedicures for those times when you inadvertently wind up with your foot in your mouth. Though it’ll be awkward at times, you’ll actually be telling truths that need to be told. Take courage, you will thank yourself later for your honesty and actions.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Did you ever hear this one, “If life hands you lemons– make lemonade”?  Make these interesting and intense times work for you– market and sell that lemonade. It’ll make you stronger and you’ll discover that there are plenty who want to buy the lemonade.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) )   As your old belief systems and facades continue to fade away from you, let them go! They don’t fit your life anymore and they’re taking up the valuable space you’ll need for the useful knowledge and exciting new perspective coming your way.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Before you devote yourself to achieving perfect balance, ask yourself what ‘perfect’ really means to you. Your tendency to believe what others believe is of value is not helpful to you. Develop trust in your natural, internal sense of discernment and let it guide you.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Has all work and no play made you a bit grumpy?  You need a break from your routine. A good massage, a frivolous movie, a few days of doing nothing– all of these activities will help you regain your perspective and your sense of yourself. Your key word is “Play!”

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) The inner journey will yield the most remarkable rewards– you’ll be encouraged to step out on faith and take advantage of an opportunity. Just be willing to play “outside of the box” in order to make the most of it and cross the finish line a winner.  

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Wow!  When you decide to make a definitive statement and tell the world who you really are, you go all out. Bravo! And just in time, too–  the world has finally caught up and is ready for you. Keep up the good work and enjoy your well-earned time in the spotlight.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Normally, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Not now, though. Important events will have to take their own course and the next couple of months will require you to have lots of faith. Things really are changing for the better and they’ll turn out just the way you wanted.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Belief systems are interesting. They can subtly take control of your whole life and dictate how you should think, feel and act. Examine your belief system and determine whether it is serving you or you are serving it. An open-minded approach to life will bring you more profitable and satisfying results.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Beauty, balance and grace are so important to you, especially now. The form is actually more important than the content this time. How things are said and done will give you the clues you need to make your best choices.

February 2019 Tarotscope

Happy Chinese New Year! This is the year of the Pig. The Year of the Pig is a social year whose good fortune is connected to the energies of the previous year– the year of the Dog. The saying, “It’s not only what you know, it’s who you know that matters,” is important to keep in mind. Pig years are all about the advantages of being connected to the “right” people at the “right” time. Self-control, patience, and hard work are the key words for this year and the awareness that the “force” is still with you is your inspiration.

For All of Us:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

~~~

 “We convince by our presence. Keep showing up.” Walt Whitman”

~~~

“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran

~~~

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Ask yourself, “Who would I be and what would I be doing if I didn’t try to meet the expectations of others?” It’s time for you to take a look at what’s truly in your heart, claim it and act on it.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) The times are a changin’, so pay attention to your own process during this time of intense transformational activity. As you focus on your own issues and avoid being distracted by others, you will discover and benefit from the powerful gift of being able to appreciate yourself.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Keep your feet firmly on the ground and your head held high in the clouds. Do that and with each Divine inspiration, you’ll find that you have built the firm foundation necessary to richly manifest your dreams.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Honest acknowledgment of what isn’t working for you at this time is even more important than honestly acknowledging what does work for you. Doing so will help you see the truth about your circumstances and insure that the powerful help you need comes to you more easily.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) There are so many new possibilities and profitable relationships waiting for you. There is no better time than now to choose something new and give it all you’ve got. Please avoid vacillating and being indecisive. Your mantra is “Of course!”

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) It’s all about the fine tuning now. Keep going and don’t overlook the value of your “sweat equity”. The success you’re creating still needs a few more building blocks before you put the finishing touches on it. Keep going and within a few months, you’ll have plenty to celebrate.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) This is a waiting period for you. The dust is beginning to settle. While waiting for it to settle, you can either burn a lot of energy by being anxious about the outcome or you can learn to wait productively. It’s important that you keep your wits about you and observe the energy flow. The wisdom you acquire will be priceless.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Putting one foot in front of the other isn’t the most exciting way to move through this period of your life, but it is the most profitable way. As you continue to do so, the stability you’ve longed for begins to manifest itself in a profitable and exciting manner. Please remember to keep the faith, be good to yourself and express gratitude to yourself as well as your Higher Power.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Remember, what others think about you is none of your business. Please pay attention to how you allow yourself to be affected by outside stimulus. As you begin to notice what creates inner peace and what causes inner turmoil, you’ll also begin to powerfully restructure your support systems.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Too much of anything isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In order to be victorious, you’ll need to put all of your energy into your latest project for the next few weeks. Your commitment will attract unlimited assistance from a new ally.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Humility, patience and grace– these three words are your mantra during the next few weeks. There’ll be a lot of dramatic changes opening the way for important opportunities. Stay calm and remember to keep your eyes on the prize and the mind-chatter to a minimum.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) As issues, beliefs, and people from your past come up for review, remember, the only power they have is the power you give them. They are from your past– leave them there! Trust your Higher Power as you move past these outmoded energies. As you do so, you’ll see that your life is your testimonial and you are your role model.

January 2019 Tarotscopes

Happy New Year! 2019 brings us a fresh new year with exciting opportunities. This is the year to consciously acknowledge, and merge your humanness and your greatness so that you can create the life you were meant to have. Clear, conscious communication with ourselves as well as others is the key to knowing and achieving what we want.

2019 is also a ‘3’ Universal year. The number ‘3’ carries “community” energy. This is the year to respond to and interact with each other in a constructive and community oriented manner. We can use the new awareness and potential that comes from combining our forces for the greater good. Whatever your hopes, wishes and/or goals are, it’s imperative that you take advantage of the powerful stimulus 2019 is providing.

‘3’ years are activist years, so whatever you align yourself with– this is a good year to promote it, especially after the powerful results of 2018’s activism. In 2018 we discovered how deeply powerful and determined we are to have a healthy life of meaning, caring, and community. Because of our insistence on supporting all of humanity, the tide has turned and now, even though there’s still a lot to do, we will be the victors if we continue moving forward with the energy and determination that have carried us through these past ugly times.

Your message for this month is also the overall theme of the year for you and comes in the form of a quote. Print it out, post it where you’ll always see it, and repeat it to yourself at least once a day.

For All of Us:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead 

“We convince by our presence.”

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.” Abraham Lincoln

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) “It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.” Eleanor Roosevelt

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) “The greatest crime in the world is not developing your potential. When you do what you do best, you are helping not only yourself, but the world.” Roger Williams

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) “Conditions are never perfect. ‘Someday’ is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. If it’s important to you and you want to do it ‘eventually,’ just do it now and correct course along the way.” Tim Ferriss

December 2018 Tarotscope

It’s December and in only a few short weeks, we’ll all witness and participate in the end of this year and the beginning of a new year– 2019.

Endings and beginnings, opportunities and challenges always trigger periods of profound reflection and soul searching. Did the year work out the way you’d hoped or planned? Did you grow and progress in all the ways you’d foreseen on January 1st of this year? Did you take the actions necessary to bring your hopes, wishes, and dreams to fruition?

2017– a “1” Universal year, called for constructive action and establishing our new 9-year life trajectory. This year, 2018, called for commitment and the results of that are beginning to show. 2019 will call for us to continue on our paths and follow through with our commitments by communicating and enrolling others in this great adventure we’re on.

We must all remember that each of us is capable of doing potentially mysterious, empowering deeds and of displaying courage, integrity and heart so vital and vibrant to the continuation of all that we hold dear.

Take a look back at yourself and your 2018 journey. How will you take what you’ve experienced and learned and use it to help make the coming year, 2019, the best year ever for yourself, your community and your world?

Your message this month is in the form of a quote or affirmation. It’s a key that will help you translate your experience of this year to reflect on your perspective of yourself, your goals, your commitment and your willingness to ‘show up’ and actively choose and stand for what you believe in.

For all of us:

“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran

and

“There are people put on this earth who make laws designed to break the spirits of others. There are those put here who have their spirits broken by the people who make those laws. Then there are those who are here to take the actions and make the laws that break the people who break the spirits of others. I am one of those people.” Steve Toltz

and by Patricia C. Wrede:

“Well,” said the frog, “what are you going to do about it?” “I don’t know. I’ve tried talking to my parents, but they won’t listen, and neither will Therandil.” “I didn’t ask what you’d said about it,” the frog snapped. “I asked what you’re going to do.”

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) “Unpredictability is sometimes a gift; it prepares you to  expect, accept and revel in the surprises life presents you with. Everything that you’re going through is preparing you for what you’ve asked for.” Anonymous

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. How you look at life determines what you get from it.” Winston Churchill

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) “Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.” Les Brown, and “There’s always a way when you do. Then your ‘shoulds’ become your ‘musts’ and you make the way.” Anonymous

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) It will never matter what others thing of you. It will ALWAYS matter what YOU think of you. PLEASE– stop caring about what others think of you. Follow your own intuition and learn to trust that you are capable of anything you set your mind to. Anonymous

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) “We generate fears while we sit. We overcome them by taking action. It’s time– take positive action.”  Dr. Henry Link

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) “You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. Life will throw you challenges, but it is in those challenges that you will learn who you are.” Maya Angelou

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. Remember to acknowledge yourself for getting to where you are today.” Maya Angelou

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” Maya Angelou, and “Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.” Harvey Fierstein

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Maya Angelou, and “You were given your dream for a reason– make it come true!” Anonymous

November 2018 Tarotscope

 

VOTE ON November 6th!

VOTE AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT– BECAUSE IT DOES!

Margaret Mead is right— “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

FOR ALL OF US: 

“What we allow will continue. What continues will escalate.” Katherine Fugate

and

“Hope has two beautiful daughters– their names are Anger and Courage.  Anger at the way things are and Courage to see that they do not remain as they are.” Augustine

and

“Prejudice is an emotional commitment to ignorance.”  Nathan Rutstein

and

“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) From now until the end of the year, you’ll have several opportunities to see what you’re really committed to. Stay grounded and pay attention to details. You’ll be called upon to make several important decisions, so be sure to choose with your head and not with your heart.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20 You’re in a very interesting position. For the next few years, the planet of eclecticism, unpredictability, and change in the form of upheaval is in your sign. Your natural inclination is to resist these forces– please don’t! Yes, extreme change is coming your way; so is extreme good fortune. Your ability to go with the flow will determine whether your path is smooth or rocky.   

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Beginning on November 16th, our old friend, Mercury– the planet that rules communication– will go retrograde until December 6th. When Mercury is retrograde, it’s a good time to contemplate, investigate, and/or analyze. It is not a good time to sign papers, buy houses or cars, or make large purchases or binding decisions. Since Mercury is your ruling planet, this goes double for you.  Your mantra is “Patience is a virtue.”

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) You’re used to traveling with a GPS and a plan. Those tools won’t help you now. You’re required to make your new moves while relying solely on the oldest navigational devices known to us– the heart and the intuition. They never lie to you, so learn to use them with faith and confidence.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) It’s time to assess your life and your goals from a new perspective. Use the magic keywords– balance, fairness, and harmony– to unlock the treasures that will reflect your true value and give you the greatest return for your efforts. You’ll discover passion and stability in a more meaningful way.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Mercury is your ruling planet, too, so please pay heed– your message is the same as THE LOVERS with this additional message– it’s very important that you keep your own counsel during this Mercury retrograde period. Some things do not need to be said right now. Wait until Mercury goes direct to speak and the Universe will have your back.

JUSTICE (September 23 — October 22) Luck is your new best friend! Apply positive action to that luck and you’ll be able to watch the magic happen! This is a good time to review your wish list and begin actively working to make one of the items on it happen. Angels will show up to help you in the most unexpected but delightful ways.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 — November 21) Your inspiration comes from the knowledge that you’re never given a wish without being given the means to manifest it. Your triumph comes from rolling up your sleeves and doing some of the unglamorous, behind-the-scenes tasks necessary for a successful outcome. Living your dream is possible– just do your part and express gratitude– God will do the rest.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 — December 21) The energy is pretty intense at this time and you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed. That’s OK– you’re in a compelling transformational phase right now. As the year draws to a close, you’ll ease into the flow of this new way of being. Embrace it and allow it to embrace you. You’ll love the outcome!

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Your imagination is really active right now and you’re “giving birth” to a lot of new creations, one of whom is the transformed and transcending you!  Remember to nurture yourself and express heartfelt gratitude for your epic journey and phenomenal rewards.

THE STAR (January 20 — February 19) This is a time of big change for you. Although, no one likes change, these changes really are for the better. Please don’t fight the process– just go with the flow and you’ll find that the Universe will replace your old ideas with a smoother, richer, and much more accurate reflection of you and the life you’re meant to live.

THE MOON (February 20 — March 20) Fairy tales and myths are based on truth. The Universe is asking you to honor yourself by acknowledging your inspiring myth or fairy tale and then doing all you can to live it. New life and new opportunities await you. Be open to these exciting challenges. A generous offer will come your way soon. Please– do accept it — you’ll be glad you did.

October 2018 Tarotscope

As we enter into the last quarter of the year, slow down, relax, and reflect on being present for one of the most memorable events of the ages– the on-going transformational shift that’s creating so much change and enabling us to see what we’re really committed to.

The efficacy of last month’s advice spans the remaining seasons of this year:

Throughout the rest of this year, allow yourself to discover and embrace the wisdom gained from these past months of 2018. This wisdom is timeless and belongs to no gender, class, race, or religion. Its gift of priceless truth comes from the experience of living honestly. As you allow yourself to discover and embrace this new aspect of yourself, you’ll discover and embrace a deeper, richer side of yourself that will teach you to appreciate your value, courage, and heart.

Let your magic shine as it expresses itself through you. It’s your right and responsibility to let the powerful significance of your journey delight, define, and inspire you. Envision without fear, ask for what you want, listen carefully to God, take the actions necessary to make it happen, and experience the results with love, joy, and gratitude.

By so doing, you can look forward with fascination to the adventures, opportunities, and changes– expected and unexpected– of our exciting and oh, so interesting times with a sense of calmness and inner support.

FOR ALL OF US: 

 “Prejudice is an emotional commitment to ignorance.” Nathan Rutstein

and

“What we allow will continue. What continues will escalate.” Katherine Fugate

and

“Hope has two beautiful daughters– their names are Anger and Courage.  Anger at the way things are and Courage to see that they do not remain as they are.” Augustine

and

“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque.

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) You’re building your own empire and you appreciate what it takes to have a dream and make it happen. Stick with it because you’re much further along than you realize. Stay grounded, stay committed, and stay focused. You’ll have reason to celebrate by Spring.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20 Resistance is sometimes the other face of endurance. Not this time, though. You are resisting the inevitable– change. Your resistance is a reflexive habit and the Universe is going to help you change that habit. Help it help you by embracing one small change every day. By doing so, you’ll create a positive new habit and gain a sense of trust and freedom worth its weight in gold.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Gathering and processing information is your strongest attribute.  Please don’t let emotions or fantasy interfere with the process. You’ll need a clear head for the important decisions you’ll have to make in the next few weeks. Don’t hesitate to get advice from like-minded people.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) It’s time for you to re-examine your definition of personal power, because it’s a magnetic force. So, what is personal power and what does it means to you? You’ll soon attract a lot of attention and you’ll need to be clear about this tremendous energy force so that it can work to attract who and what you want in your life.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Thoreau said, “If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them.” Great advice. It’s time to implement it and build those foundations. Help from an unexpected source will make you an offer that’ll bring everything into focus.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) You’re used to waiting until everything is perfect before you act. That no longer works. The Universe is demanding that you release your old ideas of perfection and discover the magic in the randomness of life. This new way of being will bring you excellent opportunities to manifest on the spiritual, emotional, and material levels.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Balance is your mantra and your mission. It’s determined and achieved not by logic or the scales, but by experience and intuition. In the coming months, it’s important that you make decisions by weighing the issues with your great strengths of clarity of vision and your inner feelings.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) You have a lot of options available to you if you can fine tune your focus. This is a good time to re-examine your motives and methods. Keep your own counsel and pay attention to your “gut” feelings. Your ability to see what others miss is at an all-time high and is your most powerful ally.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21)  Life may seem like a high wire act right now, but keep your eyes focused on your goal and place one foot in front of the other as you ask for, receive, and accept Divine Guidance. Faith and appropriate action are your guides at this time, so ask for what you want and be open to having it come to you.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) You’re standing at a crossroads in your life. Listen to your inner voice and follow your intuition. The changes you long for are on the way. Remember to keep your feet firmly on the ground as you deal with the sudden, unexpected occurrences that will bring victory closer to you. And always– please express gratitude for your process.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Life doesn’t have to be a contest of wills, i.e., ‘yours’ vs. ‘theirs.’  It’s time to relax, reflect, and appreciate the journey of your life. Yes, it’s been a long, intense journey, but you can pause now and see how much you’ve grown and how far you’ve come.  By assessing your life from this new perspective, you’ll see that, though the road at times is rough, your dreams really can come true.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) The last few years have certainly been “interesting” (a euphemism for ‘difficult’), haven’t they? A lot has changed, including you. What have you learned about yourself in the process? What’s next? As you discover the answers to these questions, you’ll also discover the easier, richer path that life is now giving you. Do yourself a favor and please take it– you’ve earned it.
