(No, you didn’t misplace my October 2015 Tarotscope. In all of the intense preparation for My Scottish Highlands & Islands Odyssey, I forgot to write it! The Odyssey was a success and you’ll be able to read about it in future posts.)
Wow– I feel like celebrating! No personal planets are retrograding and the Moon isn’t wobbling. We are able to move about our lives and the closing of the calendar year with a relative degree of ease. Now, if we can just get the weather to co-operate…
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) You’re a magnet for the unique and distinctive these days. Different perspectives could very well point to new opportunities so don’t shy away when these new perspectives present themselves to you. Many new people will come along to assist you on your path. Most won’t stay long, but all will leave you with an invaluable gift of insight.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Do you know what the most powerful action verb is? FAITH. You have found the courage to admit to yourself and those around you that you want your dreams to come true. Now, in addition to putting the physical and mental effort into bringing your dreams to fruition, you must add the belief that what you want WILL happen. As you do so, you will experience an amazing series of miracles, all leading to a very satisfying result.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Strong intuition and inner courage are your ‘besties’ at this time. They will see you through everything, from the most exhilarating to the most trying times. The Universe is preparing to move you to a new, prolific phase of your life. By listening to your strong intuition and courageously following its instructions, you’ll find that you’re always in the right place at the right time– and that right place and time are where the magic happens.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Though this is an emotional time for you, you will benefit most from remaining unemotional as you make the choices that will dictate the course of events and circumstances of the next couple of months. This kind of emotional clarity is very powerful and will help you build inner strength as well as avoid the pitfalls of the past.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) What would you do if there was nothing you could do? Answer: you would be patient. That’s right, you would find that place of inner calm and give yourself permission to just ‘be.’ That’s the place you’re in now and that’s the opportunity that’s available to you– just ‘being.’ Your desire to have what you want is enough. Please allow the Universe to provide it for you.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your quest for perfection is futile because your understanding of perfection is a human construct and far too limiting for such an infinite concept. In other words, it’s time for you to see the beauty in life just as it presents itself to you. There’s no need to adjust or embellish, just observe and appreciate. Doing so will expand your view and understanding of all of the bounty that is available to you.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Now is the time for you to stand on your own. Although the idea of partnership may be enticing, if it doesn’t support you in being in partnership with yourself first, it isn’t beneficial for you. The choices you make now are the seeds you’ll be planting for your next set of actions and experiences in the coming year. Please remember to choose yourself first and be self-compassionate.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) ‘Joy’ ‘Contentment’ ‘Aliveness’ These three words are your new set of goals and instructions, especially since Saturn, the planet of difficult but necessary lessons has moved on from your sign. Allow your heart to lead you as you move through the world in a new, more expansive manner. Enjoy the new people who come into your life, whether for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) A task/adventure will be presenting itself to you soon. Your participation is mandatory– how you go about it is up to you. If you volunteer, things will go smoothly; if you resist, things will still go, only not as gently as they could. Please be open to what you learn on this task/adventure. Immerse yourself in the experience and surrender to the process. That way, you’ll develop a deeper, more rewarding appreciation of yourself, your journey and your life.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Your in-born ability to lead others is very apparent at this time. With so much power at your command, be careful not to let ego and self-doubt become an issue. Now is a great time to make a list of what you want to achieve in the coming year and begin working on it! For inspiration, please read, “The Little Engine That Could.”
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) The Universe is very satisfied with your progress right now. So satisfied, that it is focusing on every other sign but yours. Good! I encourage you to enjoy and nurture yourself during this well-deserved break. Give yourself permission to reward yourself in a lavish, responsible manner.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) You’re awakening to life in a new way. Be gentle with yourself as you get used to this positive new surge of energy and awareness. As you embark on this new path, remember all that you’ve learned, listen to your inner voice and focus your energy on what your heart tells you to pay attention to. New energies and people will present themselves to you; choose what and who you want in your life with the aid of your intuition and reap the benefits you’ve earned.
