December 2019 Tarotscope

It’s December and in only a few short weeks, this decade will end and another will begin– presenting us with new opportunities to create and complete this particular arc of our lives.

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

2019– a “3” Universal year, called for us to follow through with our commitments by clearly communicating our truth to ourselves and others.

2020– a “4” Universal year and the beginning of a new decade, calls for us to put foundations under the hopes, wishes, and aspirations we’ve nurtured as we continue our 9-year trajectory of completion of this arc. This year, we’re all capable of doing miraculous, empowering deeds and of displaying courage, integrity, and heart. Let’s step up and honor our potential by manifesting that potential into positive reality.

Take a look back at yourself and your 2019 journey. How will you take what you’ve experienced and learned and use it to help make the coming year, 2020 (and decade), the best year(s) 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. Use it 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

“It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.” Mahatma Gandhi

and

“Ask for what you want and let the Universe edit; and then negotiate.” Dr. Patricia Allen and Sheilaa Hite

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” Albert Einstein

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) “I do not accept any absolute formulas for living. No preconceived code can see ahead to everything that can happen in a person’s life. As we live, we grow and our beliefs change. They must change. So I think we should live with this constant discovery. We should be open to this adventure in heightened awareness of living. We should stake our whole existence on our willingness to explore and experience.” Martin Buber

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) “Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going. Rather than always focusing on what’s urgent, learn to focus on what is really important.”  Stephen Covey

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) “Though the seas threaten, they are merciful. I have cursed them without cause.” William Shakespeare

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) “Some people have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can.”  Willis Whitney

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work, your judgment will be surer.  Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.”  Leonardo Da Vinci

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) We do not truly serve the world if we give to others but neglect our own truth and our own needs. It’s only when our own needs are fully met that we can generously and whole-heartedly give of ourselves. It’s not selfish to look after ourselves– it’s essential!”  Pearl S. Buck

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) “One monkey don’t stop no show!” Big Maybelle, American Blues Singer, and “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” Michael Jordan

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) “Every person with an ideal faces the danger of being called a fool or a madman. Every great cause must be ushered into the world by a small minority of persons often denounced as ‘crazy.’ Someone said, ‘Nobody can be genuinely in earnest without appearing eccentric in a world where intensity is considered bad form.’” Rev. Paul Osumi

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Life is about 20% in what happens to us and 80% in the way we respond to the events.” Ted Engstrom, and “Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death.” “Auntie Mame” Dennis

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) “In our society, art has become something which is only related to objects, and not to individuals, or to life… but couldn’t everyone’s life become a work of art?  Why should the lamp or the house be an art object, and not our lives?”  Michael Foucault

 THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) On perception and stress– “Rule 1. Don’t sweat the small stuff.  Rule 2. It’s all small stuff.  Rule 3. If you can’t fight or flee, then flow.” The Times of India

November 2019 Tarotscope

Mercury, the planet of communication is retrograde until November 20th. 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.

Now, more than ever, these three quotes must speak to us and for us:

“Gratitude is gold–  express it and accept it.” Sheilaa Hite

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

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) Your theme this month is– “spin gold out of straw.” No matter what happens, use your fierce warrior energy to find, appreciate, and praise the positive qualities in your situation. It’s true, there will be some really gnarly qualities, too, but focusing on them won’t help you to successfully move beyond them. By staying positive, you’ll gain an understanding of how to shift the energy and use it to tap into your innate reserves of power and creativity.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Planetary changes have moved a major planet into your sign. This means that you’ll be able to develop the strength and skills of your birth card/sign that will help you master and be able to count on the more stable forces in the Universe. As it is in learning any new skill, some of what will come up for you will be easy and some of it will be difficult. You’ll prevail, though, and realize that both the easy and the difficult times are giving you a priceless gift– the certainty that the Universe is always supporting and enriching you.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) The moment is at hand! Your ruling planet, Mercury, which rules communication, is retrograde. Since Mercury is known to be “fleet of foot” and wants to charge straight ahead, this can be frustrating for you unless you slow your mind and simply “sense” the information/confirmation you seek. Your great opportunities (and challenges) will lie in knowing how to use the skillful tools of intuition and discernment.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) The Universe is putting you through a major retooling now. You’re learning to use the natural gifts that equipped you to manifest in the material world what you’ve always known exists in the ethereal. Opportunities (and a few obstacles) are going to come from out of the blue, but don’t let fear or doubt stop you– jump in with both feet and fully, openly participate in unveiling your own satisfying destiny. Be the conquering hero and the world will respond to you that way.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) You are blessed with a strong will. As frustrating as this can be for your inner circle (and sometimes for yourself), it’s one of your greatest assets. Like any other powerful raw material, the expression of it needs to be refined by focusing it in a positive way. By combining your formidable will with faith and intuition, and by not reacting to the siren call of ego, you’ll experience the joy of redefining yourself. The Universe will assist you by presenting you with help from unexpected people and circumstances.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your message is similar to THE LOVERS. Mercury is also your ruling planet. This is a time of unpredictability for you because Mercury is retrograde now. I encourage you to go within and “sense” what is truly perfection for you and the circumstances of the moment. Your great opportunities (and challenges) will lie in knowing how to use the skillful tools of intuition and discernment.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) You are a born philosopher– you can see the black, the white, and the gray of any issue. While this aspect of your being is to be lauded, the times have changed and it’s a good idea to get the importance, as well as the responsibility and consequences of making or not making definite choices about the real world as opposed to an ‘ideal’ world. Your choices have meaning and the benefits of owning and using that power wisely will manifest themselves on the material and ethereal planes.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Mercury, the planet of communication, is retrograde AND is in your sign! You’re wise, creative, intelligent, intuitive and unusually talkative. This very powerful and potentially volatile combination must be handled carefully until Mercury goes direct on November 20th. In all of your interactions– please keep in mind the importance of balancing tact along with your natural sense of honesty. Giving others a piece of your mind right now is overly generous and you won’t benefit from doing so.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Your message this month is the same as last month– you’re under a lucky star and you’ve got the proverbial world on a string. Your mission this month is to continue demonstrating the positive attributes of the expansiveness and generosity of life in a subtle, steady energy of self-appreciation and generosity of spirit. Please remember to acknowledge yourself, the Universe, and those around you for the gifts you’re receiving.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Saturn, the planet of pragmatic decisiveness is in your sign. So is Pluto, the planet that governs power and compulsory, irrevocable transformation. Saturn is firmly teaching you the value and joys of confidently trusting yourself and relying on your intuition in all circumstances as you balance your feelings with the facts. Pluto is demonstrating that this is an idea whose time has come and Pluto doesn’t take “no” for an answer. As you surrender to the inevitable and release what no longer works, you will be rewarded with the success, security and joy that is your birthright.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) You’ve been overlooking the brightest star in the firmament– yourself! Accept the accolades that are coming to you from others and from your inner knowing.  Keeping your head down and pretending that you aren’t great is only diminishing the value of your contribution to your world and yourself. It’s time for you to acknowledge that the rainbow ends at your feet and claim that pot of much deserved gold. Your dreams really are meant to come true– welcome them with open arms.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Your message this month is the same as last month. You’re seeing your transformation happen before your very eyes and it is something to sing about! Don’t worry about how it’ll happen, just let it work its magic on you as it awakens you to the treasure you truly are. And remember, Neptune, your ruling planet, is still in your sign. Neptune rules the soul and it’s teaching you that you’re an expert at walking the tightrope of soul and ego. You’re already a master at this and you’re beginning to remember. You are a visionary. Paint what you see and sing what you hear. We’re finally catching up to you and are ready for your contributions.

October 2019 Tarotscope

It’s officially fall and this year October is the month we’ve waited many lifetimes for. Planet wise and energetically, this month is the time of Transformative Love– for yourself, for others, and for the world. Love (The Empress card) and transformation (the Judgement card) are the ruling energies of this month and they’ve never been stronger.

Never before have so many souls been so energetically keen on honestly, courageously facing and accepting their individual and collective greatness. By doing so, you will fulfill a promise you made to yourself lifetimes ago.

In order to do this, we must all recognize the ego for what it is– a powerful servant and a terrible master. Most of our lives we’ve been led around by our egos and this is wrong. The ego is meant to serve us; instead, to our detriment, we’ve been serving it. Simply put, the ego is like a three year old child, which means for the most part, we’ve been letting a bad tempered three year old make our decisions and run our lives. The big question is– are you ready and willing to give up this negative dynamic and take your rightful place in fulfilling your soul’s destiny?

If your answer is ‘yes’, prepare to be delighted and amazed as you take charge of your life.

As the year winds down, take a look at how you’ve navigated it. What have you discovered about yourself that you want to nurture and develop further? What have you discovered about yourself that you want to rid yourself of? Let your heart, soul, and spirit do the choosing. And then, put your ego aside and go for it!

FOR ALL OF US: 

Now, more than ever, these two quotes 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) Creating balance by choosing to take mature, wise action is your core objective now. The seeds you plant at this time by your thoughts and actions (positive or negative) will lead to learning and developing either satisfying results or distressing consequences.  Remember to set your ego aside and stay centered as you make your choices. By doing so, you’ll be able to take advantage of the advance notices you receive from your intuition.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) You are filled with infinite potential and enormous impatience at this time. The “seeds” of your success have been planted and now the second most important part of creation has begun– the waiting-gestation period. How to go through this in between phase with ease? Wait productively by joyful distraction– read an exciting novel, needlepoint, or take an art class. These external, creative actions will give you the gifts of lively stimulus and sense of purpose as you productively pass the time.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Like the beautiful flowers in a well-tended garden, you’re awakening to life in a new way. Let your spirit and soul guide you as you lovingly set your restricting ego aside and experience YOU in an exciting new way. Be gentle with yourself and those around you, but be firm in your intentions. And remember, listen to your inner voice and focus your energy on what your heart tells you to pay attention to.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) This is an empowering time for you. You’re getting a refresher course in the productive use of the ego as it learns to follow the orders of your heart. This will require personal courage. Harness your ego and your will to your “chariot” of faith and determination and you’ll experience the priceless joy of valuing yourself without judgment or comparison to others expectations.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) You love being acknowledged and adored. This is a good thing. It’s also your birthright. You of all of the signs understand the concept of the ego serving you and not the other way around. Your mission this month is to demonstrate the positive attributes of the Sun in a subtle, steady energy of self-appreciation and generosity of spirit as you acknowledge those around you for the contributions they bring to your community

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22)  Self-esteem is your lesson and your reward at this time. You are unique and it’s very important that you honor that great gift. You are not “too much.”   Judging and comparing yourself to others is the ego attempting to diminish you and your creative spirit. Focus on and learn the value of yourself as a gift by repeating your affirmation for this month, Friedrich Nietzsche’s “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Are you properly using your ego 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 and your old methods won’t work anymore. Focus less on dissecting and “understanding” each occurrence and more on in-the-moment interacting with the experiences spirit guides you to. Allow this new method to direct your flow of energy into newer and more rewarding forms of your soul’s expression.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) You, THE EMPRESS, and JUDGEMENT are the co-rulers of this month. Transformational Love is your goal. Unexpected, unpredictable, deep changes will occur in order to assist you in achieving your soul’s goal. Take the time to align yourself with the stillness within and learn to flow with the changes as your soul directs you. Regardless of how hard your ego fights this, your soul will win if you put it first.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Exhuberance– ain’t it grand!? You’re under a lucky star and you’ve got the proverbial world on a string. You, like THE SUN, understand the concept of the ego serving you and not the other way around. Your mission this month is the same: to demonstrate the positive attributes of the expansiveness and generosity of life in a subtle, steady energy of self-appreciation and generosity of spirit as you acknowledge those around you for the contributions they bring to your community

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) You are someone who can see what others can’t conceive of yet. Your ego would try to convince you that you need “proof” for what you know to be true. Your wise old soul knows that the “proof” is called faith. Accept this understanding of magic and miracles and enjoy being first in line to see the “coming attractions.”

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) A profound transformation is headed your way and the level of your luck is rising quickly. Take advantage of this expansive energy in your life and welcome it into your life with an open heart and an open mind. Keep in mind that with all change– something old and familiar leaves, something new and different enters, but always– something beautiful remains. Let your soul do the sorting.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Neptune, your ruling planet, is still in your sign. Neptune rules the soul and it’s teaching you that you’re an expert at walking the tightrope of soul and ego. You’re already a master at this– you’ve simply forgotten; please know that you can remember any time you want to. You, like THE WORLD, are a visionary. Paint what you see and sing what you hear. We’re finally catching up to you and are ready for your contributions.

September 2019 Tarotscope

September is harvest time. What have you created, nurtured, and “grown” this year? Have you been consciously tending your garden of transformational experiences so that they can enable you to see what you’re committed to.

Throughout the rest of this year, allow yourself to discover and embrace the wisdom gained from these past months of 2019. 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.

And by all means, believe in the magic of life that you encounter on so many levels every day! Continue to look forward with fascination to the adventures, opportunities, and changes– expected and unexpected– of these 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

“From fanaticism to barbarism is only one step.” Denis Didarot

and

Now, more than ever, these two quotes 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) “The Universe is not discriminating about the rightness or the wrongness of your request. It is here to accommodate all requests. All you have to do is be a Vibrational Match to your request, and the Universe will yield it to you.” Abraham

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) “Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.” Steve Maraboli

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) “Love is rare, life is strange, nothing lasts and people change.” and “Maybe it’s not about the happy ending, maybe it’s about the story.” Athena Orchard

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) “What the heart has once owned, it shall never lose.” Henry Ward Beecher and “In the infinity of creation, there are infinite possibilities. For as long as there have been beings capable of making choices, we have steered our own reality.” Unknown

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22)  “The finest emotion of which we are capable is the mystic emotion. Herein lies the germ of all art and all true science. To know that what is impenetrable for us really exists and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty– this knowledge, this feeling… that is the core of true connection to the Divine.” Albert Einstein

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) “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,“Sometimes logic and order aren’t your friends.” Sheilaa Hite

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) “One of the saddest lines in the world is, ‘Oh come now– be realistic.’ The best parts of this world were not fashioned by those who were realistic. They were fashioned by those who dared to look hard at their wishes and gave them horses to ride.” Richard Nelson Bolles

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) “Some people have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to, when all they need is one reason why they can.” Willis Whitney

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) “This is the purpose of life– to get what you want. There are deeper things, but this is fun.” Karl Lagerfeld

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) “Embrace fully your capacity to create, to think in unlimited ways, and to pursue everything that you have been wanting. Be flexible, open and willing to let the new come to you. This can be the most joyous, prosperous, and creative time of your life.”  Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) “Failure is an event, not a person; yesterday ended last night, and today is a brand-new day. Make friends with your past, focus on the present, and be optimistic about your future. Success (a win) doesn’t make you, and failure (a loss) doesn’t break you.” Zig Ziglar

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20)You have done what you could– some blunders and absurdities have crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

August 2019 Tarotscope

Well– July was something, wasn’t it!? Let’s all breathe a sigh of relief that it and Mercury retrograde are now in the past. We experienced the need to release our hold on many things that we considered of value. That need to release is till prevalent this month. Have fun, be mindful, let go, and give yourself the gift of going with the flow.

LETTING GO

“To ‘let go’ doesn’t mean to stop caring, it means I can’t do it for someone else. * To ‘let go’ is not to enable, judge, change or blame another, it’s to allow another to be a human being and learn from natural consequences as I make the most of myself, and search out my own shortcomings and correct them. * To ‘let go’ is not to try to arrange all the outcomes. * To ‘let go’ is not to care for, it’s to care about. * To ‘let go’ is not to deny, it means to accept. * To ‘let go’ is not to regret the past, it’s to grow and live in the present as I take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it. * To ‘let go’ is to fear less and love more. “

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

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) Sometimes knowing the right thing to do can only be determined by establishing a new inner “truth meter.” Being able to do so is all about awareness, balance, and courage. This is what’s needed now if you are to embrace your true mission– learning and practicing a new way of appreciating yourself. This is an idea whose time has come– Carpe Diem!

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) The whirlwind swirling around you is real. Though you are uncomfortable with change, the time for it has arrived. There are two ways you can deal with this new mandate– resist it at every turn, which will force change to grab you by the collar and drag you into your new era, or you can surrender to the inevitable and learn the joys and power of flexibility and flow, thus creating a dynamic energetic partnership that will ensure the success of your transformation.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) No matter how much you’re tempted, you must keep your own counsel at this time. All of the facts are not in yet and any conclusion you come to will need to be adjusted by the input of new information. When the time is right to speak up, you’ll be the one person people will want to listen to. Let your natural ability to sort through and make sense of the incoming information work for you during this period.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Intense and with a tendency to withdraw, you’ll benefit from lightening up and going with the flow at this time. Otherwise, you’re likely to become overly emotional and succumb to the 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 SUN (July 21 – August 22) Remember the tale of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”? His problems began with an oversized ego, which rendered him blind to the truth. Be cautious of flattery and flatterers, especially at this time. Carefully check for details, references and all pertinent confirmation before you invest yourself in any new schemes.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) You’re used to doing all of the work, but now you must stand back and assess your progress. Even though things aren’t making the kind of sense you expect them to make, they are making the kind of sense they’re supposed to make, so let things unfold naturally. Stay tuned in and continue to be meticulous as you follow up on your progress– you’ll love the results!

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) These last few years have been intense and interesting.  Your natural sensitivity and vulnerability to the whims and wishes of others isn’t as exposed as it used to be. Your circumstances are different now and you’re still getting used to the internal and external changes. Just relax, let life takes its course, and enjoy the opportunity for peace and calmness.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Because maturity and responsibility came early for you, self-esteem, self-value and self-confidence are still playing catch up. It’s time to shed those old “skins” of distrust and the need to control. Surrender to the ease of being that you’ve earned and see yourself as others see you– a strong person of passion, depth, and integrity.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Do the words luck, power, and success mean anything to you? They should, because they are synonymous with your own name right now. The Universe is acknowledging you as a powerful player and is providing you with the opportunity to become a Life Master. Pay attention to the signs and enjoy the experience as you proceed with grace and gratitude toward your goals.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) This is a powerful and lucky period for you. Your magnetism is at an all-time high and your ability to trust the process and go with the flow is the secret to your success. Listen to your intuition; be willing to trust the Universe and the opportunities you want will appear before you. Continue strengthening the discipline and habits you need in order to make your hopes, wishes and dreams come true.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Your card, The Star, is the card of hope. So ask yourself, How different would my life be if I could afford to do anything I wanted to do?” Give it some thought and start making plans, because the Universe is listening and willing to grant wishes. That kind of opportunity is rare, so use it to your advantage. And of course, express gratitude for it finally being your turn.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Different, unusual, and strange are words that have been used to describe you as well as the words unique, inventive, and creative. It hasn’t always been easy being you because of this, but remember– God didn’t make a mistake– being different doesn’t make you defective. Some of the brightest and most successful people in our world rarely started out as part of the “in crowd.” Embrace the one-of-a-kind gift that you are and open up to all of the bounty that’s coming to you because of it.

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.
