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

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.

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

For All of Us:

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

~~~

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

~~~

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

~~~

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

January 2019 Tarotscopes

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

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

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

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

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

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) “Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.” George Addair, and “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when adults are afraid of the light.” Plato  

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) “Do not indulge in dreams of having what you have not, but reckon up the chief of the blessings you do possess, and then thankfully remember how you would crave for them if they were not yours.” Marcus Aurelius

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) “Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.”
Carl Sandburg

September 2018 Tarotscope

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.

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.
