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 WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) 11) “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Wishing is not enough; we must do.” Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, and “When you stay on purpose and  don’t allow yourself to be discouraged by fear, you align with the infinite self, in which all possibilities exist.” Wayne Dyer

 THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) “For every reason it’s not possible, there are hundreds of people who have faced the same circumstances and succeeded.” Jack Canfield, and “Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”  Saint Francis of Assisi

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. 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) 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.

It’s harvest time, again. What gifts and skills have you nurtured and “grown” so far this year? Aided by two powerful eclipses, and Mercury and Mars retrograde, last month’s energy gave us the mandate to consciously experience a transformational shift that’s enabling us to see what we’re really committed to.

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.

Your message as you move through this harvest period comes in the form of a quote or affirmation. Write or print it out, put it on your bathroom mirror, the refrigerator, and the dashboard of your car. Be conscious of and contemplate its message and meaning to you at this extraordinarily pivotal time.

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

Now, more than ever, this quote must speak to us and for us:

“Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities– always see them, for they’re always there.” Norman Vincent Peale

“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) “You cannot learn and be perfect at the same time. You cannot be perfect and learn at the same time.”  Marvin Marshall

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 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 or impulse in the mind and heart of a man or a woman. The supreme teachings that changed the course of humanity were the ideas of a person whose genius separated him from his environment.” Kahlil Gibran

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) “If I were to let my life be taken over by what is urgent, I might never get around to what is essential.”  Henri Nouwen

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) “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

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.” Helen Keller

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) “Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one.”  Eleanor Roosevelt

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) 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 MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) “It is not so much what you believe in that matters, as the way in which you believe it and proceed to translate that belief into action.”  Lin Yutang

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) “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.” Kahlil Gibran

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) “My soul preached to me and said, ‘Do not be delighted because of praise, and do not be distressed because of blame. The trees blossom in Spring and bear fruit in Summer without seeking praise; and they drop their leaves in Autumn and become naked in Winter without fearing blame.’” Kahlil Gibran

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) “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.” Unknown

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) “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.” Kahlil Gibran

 

 

 

 

August 2018 Tarotscope

This is an intense time and we’re having to deal with an unprecedented amount of stress. It’s a lot like being in the spin cycle of an industrial washing machine. At the end of this cycle, we’ll find that we’re clearer about our power in the world and more committed to using it to manifest the lives we’ve been dreaming of. Because what we focus on grows, ask yourself, “How will I use my clarity and power? What will I focus on?”

Remember– Mercury and Mars are still retrograde until August 19th and 27th. For Mercury retrograde: 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 Mars retrograde: count to ten before you take any action– caution and patience are your guides.

“Help young people. Help small guys. Because small guys will be big. Young people will have the seeds you bury in their minds, and when they grow up, they will change the world.”  Jack Ma

“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 time is now. You have to choose to go with what is obviously your Divine guidance or be left behind. You’ve come too far to turn back now, so you need to acknowledge how powerful and fortunate you are and how far you’ve come if you are to continue moving forward in a positive way. There’s a big payoff waiting for you if you do.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Yes, there have been and will continue to be changes both major and minor. The results of the choices you make because of these changes will be profound and enduring– announcing to the world and yourself in a very definite manner, the value you place on yourself and your life force. You’re a powerful mirror/magnet for reflecting and attracting what you believe you are worth, and you are on your way to becoming even more so.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Your ruling planet is Mercury and it’s retrograde from July 26th to August 19th. The next few weeks are important. If you listen to your intuition, you’ll harvest a bountiful crop that will richly reward you in every area of your life. If instead, you give into fear, you’ll discover that you’ve cultivated a useless crop of anxiety that will sap you of your energy instead of harvesting the bountiful crop of recognition and success you’ve worked so hard for.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Here’s the perfect recipe for getting what you want– one part lofty theory, one part focus and determination and three parts daydreaming and child’s play. This is the real, grounded action called for if you’re to achieve your goals. Listen carefully to your intuition as you’re propelled by destiny toward making your dreams come true.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) What are you pretending not to know? The Universe has seen through your ruse and you can’t hide your light, your feelings, or your abilities under a basket anymore. It’s time to come out of hiding and take center stage, acknowledging to yourself and the world that you are a winner.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your ruling planet is also Mercury and it’s retrograde from July 26th to August 19th. Remember what Robert Burns said about “seeing ourselves as others see us?” He called it a gift and often it is– not this time, though. During this period of self-assessment, transformation and re-definition, you can’t depend on others to tell you what your truth is or how to find it. The answers lie within you. Go within and seek your own personal truth.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Because you’re used to getting treats for jumping through the hoop of the “nose to the grindstone, shoulder to the wheel” philosophy, you’re finding it difficult to balance your life by sometimes just being frivolous and having fun for no reason. Take a deep breath and accept the challenge to relax and just smell the roses. You’ll discover how good you are at it and you’ll enjoy yourself in the process.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) The greatest impact you can have on anyone (especially yourself) at this time comes from just being yourself. People are drawn to that very unique light and innate sense of honesty that you possess. Take responsibility for being the gift that you are and don’t settle for anything less than the best.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) You’re a romantic at heart. Unbeknownst to your conscious practical self, forces greater than yourself are powerfully acknowledging you and your efforts as they guide you to a place that will give you and those around you a reason to celebrate and reward you for your efforts.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) There’s been a major shift in your life lately and things are changing rapidly for you. Where there were once obstacles, there is now ease and flow. Accept your new course with gratitude and grace. By so doing, you encourage others to benefit by emulating your process.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19)To thine own self be true” is your mantra. A new opportunity has presented itself to you and you’ll really benefit by viewing it from an entirely new perspective.  The advice and opinions of others won’t help you at this time– you must trust and go for it!

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Your life needs balance. You take care of so many people, it’s time to let them take care of you for a change. How do you get them to do this? It’s simple– just ask them! The people you do so much for would love to return the favor, please let them.

July 2018 Tarotscope

Both Mercury and Mars will be retrograde this month. For Mercury retrograde: 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 Mars retrograde: count to ten before you take any action–  caution and patience are your guides.

“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) It’s been a year of many changes and courageous transformation. You’re doing all you can do to make a success of yourself and your projects. The big lesson for you is this– “Remember, you can always make your dreams come true!” Focus on your goal, and trust God to guide your pace and your footsteps.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) It’s time to take things in a different direction. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten so trust your vision and follow it to a successful conclusion.  Commit to your vision, take courage and allow yourself to experience a new level of transformation, power, and success.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Your ruling planet is Mercury and it will be going retrograde again on July 26th until August 19th. Though, not the most exciting time, this Mercury retrograde period provides you with the opportunity to clearly see where you stand and who stands with you. Set your sights on what you want, notice who encourages you, notice who attempts to get in your way and above all– keep putting one foot in front of the other.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) “Know Thyself.”  From this fountain of wisdom, all other forms of wealth spring and flow eternally.  As you know and appreciate who you are and what makes you tick, you automatically give yourself permission to embrace and honor what works and to effortlessly release what doesn’t. As you reflect on the journey of your life, please keep in mind– “God Doesn’t Make Mistakes.”

 THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) This is a prolific time for you. The steps you take on this part of your journey lead to the end of a barren phase in your life.  You are clearing away the rubble of the past and opening a wide path that leads you straight to the fulfillment of your hopes, wishes and dreams.  During this journey– pay attention– you are powerfully guided and blessed with Divine Assistance.  Someone from the past will give you important information, use it wisely.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your advice is similar to THE LOVERS.  Your ruling planet is also Mercury and it’s retrograde from July 26th to August 19th. This retrograde period is more intense than usual because Mars, the planet of passion and how we take action, is also retrograde.  Use this time to sort through your relationships and beliefs. Decide what’s worth being passionate about and take appropriate action.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) This is a time of Faith, Trust and Action– these three powerful energies are magical and your use of them will attract who and what you need to help you successfully accomplish your goals.  Put your hopes and desires into words; put those words into action and you’ll achieve the success you’ve dreamt of and worked so hard for.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) The time is right for your plans to come to fruition.  Use patience, faith and self-honesty as you give proper attention to this chapter in your life. You’re learning to listen to what your heart wants you to do and you’re planning with your head (remember when it used to be the other way around!).  Give yourself permission to expect, accept and receive your bounty.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) It’s time to take your life back by turning the negative energy of fear into the positive power of faith with right action.  Choose something you want to make happen in your life.  Start with simple things, decide on a course of action for each one and follow through with it.  With each victory, you build your faith, courage and strength.  By the time you get to that big dream, you’ll have and be what it takes to make it come true!

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) As the old is being swept away from your life, don’t chase after it. Let it go. A Higher Power has made the decision to help you transform and enrich your life by removing what and who are no longer valid reflections of you. You will soon be able to choose from a better set of people and opportunities.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Your opportunities to advance yourself in the world have never been stronger. It’s very important to keep your balance and let your intuition guide you through these last steps of a significant passage. Trust and go with your feelings– you won’t be sorry!

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Congratulations– you made it through the worst of the self-doubting days and now the Universe is ready to reward you for your perseverance.  Be on the look-out for a lucrative offer from someone who can help you advance your career.

May 2018 Tarotscope

Always remember–

“Help young people. Help small guys. Because small guys will be big. Young people will have the seeds you bury in their minds, and when they grow up, they will change the world.” Jack Ma

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) It’s time to breathe a sigh of relief and start dancing to your own music. Reclaim your power as you stop depending on others to tell you who you are, what you want and what you deserve. And remember– think with your mind and feel with your heart– not the other way around. It’s an unbeatable combination and an idea whose time has come.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Whew! These are interesting times, aren’t they? Behind each challenge is the opportunity to dispel the myth that you are inherently powerless and undeserving of receiving and living from your birthright of infinite spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health and wealth. Keep on keeping on– in due time, you’ll have plenty to cheer about!

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) You can’t wait any longer for ‘someday’; it’s here now. Walk in faith as you ask for, listen to, and accept Divine Guidance. Whatever challenges you encounter are only illusions, they appear only to test your faith and strengthen you. As you proceed in fulfilling your destiny, all sorts of things will transpire to help you that would never otherwise have happened.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) The subtle shifts and changes you’ve been experiencing are now manifesting into form. Keep up the good work, remain attentive and grateful and remember– “the best is yet to come.”

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Awareness, Surrender, Transformation. These are your key words for this very different (and sometimes difficult) period. You’ll benefit most by accepting responsibility for your circumstances and accepting the assistance that’s being offered to you.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your goal is worthy and your navigation is fine. If circumstances have thrown you off course, it’s always OK to take another look at the map and re-direct your energy. Important new information is available to you as you do so.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) You’re going to be in great demand soon, especially by friends and associates. Be very clear in your communications with them and be careful what you promise. Only make commitments that will benefit yourself as well as them.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) “How” you do something is just as important as “what” you do. Your mindset, your intentions, and your methods are being closely monitored by the authority figures in your life. Make sure you dot those “i’s” and cross those “t’s”– you’ll have plenty of reason to celebrate if you do.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) “God’s delays are not necessarily God’s denials.” A wise person offered that insight to me and I pass it on to you. Be patient, be observant, and be respectful of the process you’re in. Persevere and you’ll have your reward.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) When Emerson wrote, “What we are is God’s gift to us; what we become is our gift to God,” he was writing that for you. Your greatest strength lies in determining what your own personal truth is and how you can use the power of that truth to properly assess the true value of your personal journey. Once you’ve determined that and activated it, you’ll find that your ability to profitably manifest has increased tenfold.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Your opportunities to advance yourself in the world have never been stronger. It’s very important to keep your balance and let your intuition guide you through these last steps of a significant passage. Trust and go with your feelings– you won’t be sorry!

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Pay attention to your dreams, they have very important and powerful messages for you. You’ll be able to work most of your plans out by the symbols and information given you during your very prolific dreamtime. Be open to new ideas and be flexible– it’ll really pay off.

 

April 2018 Tarotscope

“Help young people. Help small guys. Because small guys will be big. Young people will have the seeds you bury in their minds, and when they grow up, they will change the world.” Jack Ma

It’s April. It’s finally Spring. Mars is hurtling out-of-bounds through space and Mercury is retrograde until April 15th.

OK– what do we do with all of that? We take this energetically rich time to commit to our soul’s intention for us and sort through the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual backlog of “stuff” we’ve been holding on to “just in case we need it later.” (We rarely need any of that “stuff” later.) Let’s use this season to Spring clean our spaces, signaling the Universe that we’re open to receiving an increasing amount of profitable, joyful, useful newness in our lives.

Spring is seed planting time. The seeds of activity and inactivity we plant now will be the crops we harvest in the Fall. What encouraging flowers and elements do you want your life garden to grow? Choose wisely and take the actions required to make your garden a prize winner!

And, as always for Mercury retrograde: 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.

“Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life. Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall. Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone. Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring.” William Alexander

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) “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.”  Robert Louis Stevenson

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) “Oh, Spring! I want to go out and plant seeds and feel you and get inspiration. My old things seem dead. I want fresh contacts, more vital searching.” Emily Carr

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) “Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness.”  Steve Mariboli

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) My feeling was, you plant some seeds. If they grow, great; if they don’t, you don’t take it personally. Not my problem; Just keep planting. Just like a farmer.” Hank Haney

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) “I want to cultivate the seed that was placed in me until the last small twig has grown.” Kathe Kollwitz and “Look around for new places to sow a few seeds.” Henry Van Dyke

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who will reap a harvest in the Autumn.” B. C. Forbes

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) “An empowered life begins with serious personal questions about oneself. Those answers bare the seeds of success.”  Steve Mariboli

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) “Words are also seeds, and when dropped into the invisible spiritual substance, they grow and bring forth after their kind.” Charles Fillmore

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) “There is no better teacher than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.” Malcolm X

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) “You have planted many seeds in the garden of possibilities. Meditation is the art of removing the weeds from the garden of possibilities.” Amit Ray

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) “Talk unbelief, and you will have unbelief; but talk faith, and you will have faith. According to the seed sown will be the harvest.” Ellen G. White

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) “You have to get up and plant the seed and see if it grows, but you can’t just wait around, you have to water it and take care of it.” Bootsy Collins

March 2018 Tarotscope

It’s March. Spring isn’t far away now. We are experiencing the growing pains of new life, new perspectives, new ideas. What is your dream? Now is the time to commit to it and give it energy. Let your mantra be:

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth– the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans– the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole system of events issues from the decision– raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance– which no one could have ever dreamed would have come one’s way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets:‘Whatever you can do, or dream you can– begin it now. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.’” William Hutchinson Murray

And as always:

“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

“Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities– always see them, for they’re always there.” Norman Vincent Peale

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) At this time, you’re between a rock and a hard place– you can’t go back to the past and you can’t divert your energy or attention to something off to the side– you must move forward. Analyzing the situation, weighing your options, and living in theory will not work. The only limitations are the ones you impose on yourself, so take the steps now, and you’ll find that Divine Guidance powerfully assists, supports, and rewards you.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Dreams of the heart are powerful– they get us up in the morning and keep us going through the worst of times. The only price they demand is that we are true to them and ourselves. Influential people, committed to helping you, are waiting in the background. Commit to your dream and they will come forward.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) You’re at a very important crossroads and it’s time to make a choice. Which direction is best for you to choose? The one less traveled, of course. By going in a new direction you will meet people and circumstances that will assist you in making your dreams come true.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Sometimes the most courageous thing we can do is admit that we need help. The second most courageous thing we can do is ask for that help. During the next few weeks you’ll benefit greatly from another person’s perspective. It’s best if you seek advice from those who are experts in their field, instead of from friends and well-meaning relatives.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) If you’ve been feeling restrained or held back by your circumstances lately– that’s all about to change! Ask for what you want (be specific), be willing to take the steps necessary to bring your desires to fruition, and count your blessings as you enjoy reaping the benefits.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Some days are “dog” days and some days are “fire hydrant” days. Rather than fighting the limited mobility of the “fire hydrant” days, use your energy more productively by attending to the less exciting and more mundane things in your life.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) “Should I …?” is the root of all of your quandaries at this point in your life. The answer– lose the “shoulds”– they’re often the lead weights of the status quo, designed to keep you on someone else’s path or leash. Instead, courageously listen to your heart and responsibly follow its lead.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Keep putting one foot in front of the other. You’re at the beginning of a new and vital phase. Keep your senses on the alert and you’ll go through this period with consciousness and clarity and you’ll get the full benefits of this life altering time.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) There is a great deal of power in wishes these days. If you want yours granted, stay centered, stay positive, and stay the course. The finish line is in sight now and you can cross it in victory.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Now is not the time to rest on your laurels. You have a strong momentum going and you must take advantage of it while you can. Remember to keep your focus on what you have learned about your goals and yourself and deepen your commitment to successfully furthering your cause.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) As you roll up your sleeves for the next round of challenges headed your way, remember that you aren’t alone. Somebody “up there” likes you and is sending help. Remember to remain humble and grateful.         

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Be radical! Success will come if you take the necessary risks that your circumstances call for. Remember to keep a positive outlook and expect the best.
