October 2022 Tarotscope

Wow! What a year so far! So much change has occurred. At this time of harvest, ask yourself, “What gifts and skills have I discovered and developed during this very transformational year?”

This year’s powerful combination of events and forces have given us the opportunity to use our natural gifts of courage, determination, and adaptability in order to know that we can manifest whatever we set our hearts and minds to.

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

FOR ALL OF US:

“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

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) “Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make, makes you. Choose wisely.” Roy T. Bennett

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) “In every crisis there is a message. Crises are nature’s way of forcing change– breaking down old structures, shaking loose negative habits so that something new and better can take their place.”  Susan L. Taylor

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) “Remember always that you have not only the right to be an individual; you have an obligation to be one.  You cannot make any useful contribution in life unless you do this.”  Eleanor Roosevelt

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) “God has given you a spirit with wings with which to soar into the spacious firmament of Love and Freedom. Recognize that life is what you get when you’re born– living is what you do with it.” Anonymous

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) “The expectations of life depend upon diligence; the mechanic that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.” Confucius; and “Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart.  Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.”  Carl Jung

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) “In any moment, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” Theodore Roosevelt

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) 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.” Khalil Gibran

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) 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.” Anonymous

WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) “Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.”  Jawaharlal Nehru

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) “There’s great satisfaction and power in living a courageously creative life.  When you do, the world conspires to be creative with you and magic happens.  Each of us is capable of doing potentially mysterious, empowering things, of displaying a creative energy so vital and vibrant, that everyone who sees us recognizes and connects with that same creative energy force within themselves.” Anonymous

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) “Every human has four endowments– self-awareness, conscience, independent will, and creative imagination.  These give us the ultimate human freedom– the power to choose, to respond, to change.” Steven Covey

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) “To dream anything you want to dream– that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything you want to do– that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits– that is the courage to succeed.”  Bernard Edmonds

 

September 2022 Tarotscope

At this time of year, Nature guides us to ask ourselves these important questions– What ‘crop’ did I grow? How well did I tend it? Was/is it a profitable ‘crop’? As we answer those questions, we are also creating the space for the type of energy that will sustain and inform us during the winter season. Your message for this month is grouped together with cards of the same mode of energy expression.  The communal spirit of the gathered energy of each mode of expression will help you dynamically support your efforts as you enter into the process of completing 2022’s cycle.

Mercury, the planet of communication, will be retrograde from September 9th to October 2nd. Introspection, intuition, and inspiration are the key words for this Mercury retrograde. Please use this opportunity to consciously go within and make note of those often brilliant flashes of insight. Then follow through with the research that’ll help you pinpoint how to profit from your discoveries.

As with all Mercury retrogrades, plans and communications will take you on a roller coaster ride. This retrograde promises to be a very intense emotional one, so please remember to remain centered and grounded, no matter what. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation, and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can and will occur. 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, 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.

 

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20), THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20), JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) and THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) The energy of your mode of expression is action and activity oriented. You’ll understand the meaning and value of your journey through this year by consciously and conscientiously sorting through your feelings, fears, beliefs, and attitudes. As you take inventory, you’ll begin to see the direction you’re headed in and who and what are on the same path with you. With this new awareness, you’ll be able to continue the manifestation of your most important goals for the year. Your mantra for this season is by Dr. Jonas Salk. “If we can be courageous, one more time than we are fearful; if we can be trusting, one more time than we are anxious; if we can be cooperative, one more time than we are competitive; if we can be forgiving, one more time than we are vindictive; if we can be loving, one more time than we are hateful… we will have moved closer to the next breakthrough in our evolution.”   

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20), THE SUN (July 21 – August 22), THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) and THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) The energy of your mode of expression is best focused in an introspective and personal manner. For you, this year has brought you to a better place of understanding the need for transformation and the wisdom that comes through the process. Naturally profound, with a powerful way of figuring things out, you’re now ready to develop that aspect of yourself that knows how to put that information to practical use. By reviewing and practicing the mental, emotional, and spiritual lessons you’ve learned this year, you’ll be able to finish out 2022 with a great deal more passion and power than you’ve ever had. Your mantra for this season is by Albert Einstein. “The finest emotion of which we are capable is the mystic emotion. Herein lies the germ of all art and all true science. Anyone to whom this feeling is alien, who is no longer capable of wonderment and lives in a state of fear is a dead man. To know that what is impenetrable for us really exists and manifests itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, whose gross forms alone are intelligible to our poor faculties– this knowledge, this feeling… that is the core of the true spiritual sentiment.”

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20), THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22), THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) and THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) The energy of your mode of expression is found in communication with others as well as yourself. This harvest season is the time for you to consciously evoke memories of your past victories and achievements. The more you experience these moments of being purely and powerfully yourself, the more you’ll inspire and strengthen those winning aspects of yourself. As 2022 winds down, you’re also preparing for the opportunities of 2023. Your mantra for this season is by James Allen. “Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.”

July 2022 Tarotscope

It’s officially summer in the Northern hemisphere and winter in the Southern hemisphere. The blossoming and harvesting processes of life on our planet are fully engaged and will produce the profitable results of sustainable fruits or serviceable knowledge. This is a great time to get in touch with the creative essence of who you are and what you’re committed to.

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) “Ah, change– a marvelous concept for others, but why me!?”  Reluctant or not, this is a time to honestly assess your situation and leave the past behind you. By focusing on who and what are of real value to you, you will automatically be focusing on your real value, which is the actual point of this exercise. Once aware, you can make of your life what you wish.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Order and change very often come from chaos. By using your natural skills of pleasant, patient persistence, you can outwait any storm or obstacle. As things settle down, remember that successful creativity, beauty, and profit are often born of chaos followed by good planning. Things are on the upswing for you as you enter an entirely new cycle.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Opportunity is knocking– are you listening? Your creativity and luck are at an all-time high. People are willing to assist you as you march toward your quest– all you have to do is ask.  Remember to stay focused and listen to your intuition. If you allow yourself to be guided by that powerful inner voice, you can’t fail.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) You are an expert at caring for others– nurturing them, solving their problems, encouraging them. It’s your turn, now– time to use your well-developed expertise for yourself. You can no longer hide your light by helping others. Make your own dreams come true by making courage and action your partners as you set off on creating the adventure of your life.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Are you giving your power to the fears of the past or the possibilities of the future? Whatever you focus on in the present determines your future. Take stock of your progress and commit to seeing your vision through to the end. Not only will you achieve the success you desire, you will grow and benefit in ways you never expected.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your well-known penchant for only trusting the facts won’t serve you, now. Although, the “facts” show you one picture, things are not what they seem.  What you think is right and what you know in your heart are two different things. You must rely on your intuitive sense for guidance– nothing else will do.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Who you know does matter. Influential people will step forward to assist you in whatever you’ve put your energy into in the last few months. Because of your commitment to your goal, it’s coming to fruition now. Take this time to review and do some fine-tuning. Be receptive, grateful and gracious as you celebrate your victory.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Though your specialty is control, this is a time to surrender. If you want to have what you want, you must be willing to relinquish control of how it comes to you and who delivers it. Yes, as strange as it may seem, God does have a better plan and better timing than you. Listen to your intuition, ask for and accept guidance, and you will have something wonderful to celebrate!

WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) You’re at a crossroads now. Do you do what you’ve always done (therefore, getting what you’ve always gotten) or do you trust your vision and follow it to a successful conclusion? Commit to your vision and let it lead you to a new level of power and success.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Perspective is important. How do you see the glass– half full or half empty? Despite apparent setbacks, please don’t be discouraged– all of your hard work will pay off. The reason for the delay is two-fold, (1) to strengthen your faith and patience, and (2) to create a solid, long lasting, supportive foundation for you and your future endeavors. Continue doing what you are doing– it’s working.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) You can’t “push the river.”  Now is the time to listen to your inner voice and plan. The action you long for will come soon. When it does, you need to be ready by knowing how to keep your feet firmly on the ground as you deal with the sudden, unexpected occurrences that will bring victory closer to you.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) The instructions for manifesting what you want are simple. Keep your feet on the ground, listen to your intuition, focus on what you want, take appropriate action, have faith. Yes, the instructions are simple and because you have followed those simple instructions, the manifestation process is nearly complete. By doing so, you are not only creating what you want; you are also aligning yourself with the secret of manifestation.

June 2022 Tarotscope

This is a busy month– Mercury, the planet of communication, will cease its retrograde motion and go direct in a few hours (thank God!), 36 hours later, Saturn, the planet of structure, success, and discipline will go retrograde, and on June 21st, summer officially begins with the Summer Solstice (Winter Solstice if you’re below the Equator). A lot will be happening. Just remember to kick back and enjoy life, too.

Every profound experience of our lives has a song or sound track accompanying it. Whether we’re familiar with the tune or not, whenever we hear it, we come face-to-face with our recollection of the experiences that the song evokes. Your message this month comes in the form of a song. As you listen to it, allow those old recollections to come to your consciousness so that you can clearly see what/who/where you are, as well as what’s really yours and what isn’t any more.

(The Sun Tarot card by Ciro Marchetti)

April 2022 Tarotscope

This is the month that separates winter from spring and hibernation from conscious awareness. It’s also a month of exploration and discovery. The greatest discoveries are those you make about yourself and your motivations. Let this month be a continuous waking meditation which connects you to Divine Source and reveals all of your richness to you.

For all of us:

“In a world where you can be anything, be kind”  Caroline Flack

and

“To risk is to risk appearing the fool.  To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.

To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self. 

To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk loss.

To love is to risk not being loved in return. To live is to risk dying.

To try at all is to risk failure. But to risk we must.

Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

The man, the woman, who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

and

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

 

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) As you notice what motivates the people around you, resist the urge to try to grant their every wish. Allow them to grow by figuring things out for themselves. Use this very fertile time to figure out what makes you happy, and then do it. Enjoy being the recipient of your own boundless energy!

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) This is a time of great personal evolution for you. Everything in your energy field is stimulating and inspiring you. You don’t have to do anything except stand in the center of this great transformational energy and allow this process to take its own course. You’re being prepared for a great and beneficial awakening.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) For the next few weeks, your world view will be seen through one of these lenses– “It was the best of times” or “It was the worst of times.” What you see and the way you see it will inform your choices for the next three months. Remember to stay grounded and avoid letting your emotions make choices for you.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) It’s time to combine your innate ability to get things done with your natural charm. Your environment is in need of someone to give it direction. You will win the support of those around you because many people will gladly help you as you work your ‘magic’.  Remember to acknowledge and thank all those who work with you.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Your perception of yourself is being challenged now. The Universe is urging you to change the way you express yourself emotionally and mentally. Now is the time for you to acknowledge and embrace what is uniquely and wonderfully you.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Start seeing yourself and your world from a new perspective. Be actively curious about the direction your life is going and you’ll make some amazing discoveries. And do take the time to thoroughly examine your new perspectives and the wisdom you gain because of your new perspectives.     

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) You’re used to being part of a team. Now, though, it’s time for you to be self-reliant. You really do need to go within and listen to the quiet voice of your own intuition. Your inner voice is a trusted ally and a good sounding board for what’s going on deep within you at this very sensitive time. By doing so, you will feel more energized and creative.

 THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) One of your great gifts is your natural sense of “knowing” which leads you to great insights. Pay attention to what is revealed to you as you access life’s profound truths. You’re a natural intuitive and visionary and your world will benefit as you share your discoveries.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) This is a prolific time for you and what you ask for now, you will very likely receive. Do make sure you are specific in your requests and appreciative in expressing your gratitude. Thank those who have helped you and please remember to include yourself, too. Many people will want to be a part of what you’re creating, so please be discerning in your choices.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) “Whatever you can do, or dream you can– begin it now,” was true when the great philosopher, Goethe, first said it and it’s definitely true for you now.  Start by taking small, careful actions and analyze the results of those actions. Continue doing this and you will gradually see your goal come into view. Encourage your success by acknowledging yourself and your achievements.         

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) At this time, the doors that open onto the past are beginning to close. This is a good thing. Just remember that when one door closes, another one opens. Instead of futilely trying to keep them open, surrender to these necessary changes and seek out the bright new doors of the future. They’ll be easy to spot– they’ll be wide open and beckoning you to walk through them.

 MOON (February 20 – March 20) Take a good look at the people in your environment. How many of them are truly contributing to your progress and how many are causing you unnecessary stress? If the people you’re spending time with don’t reflect your ambition, abilities, and integrity, you’re probably with people who don’t or can’t appreciate you. If that’s the case, it’s time to be true to yourself and let go of who and what no longer supports you and your goals.

 

 

 

January 2022 Tarotscope

Happy New Year– it’s 2022!  2022 is a ‘6’ year numerologically. ‘6’ is the number of ‘The Gift,’ of harmonious relationships, healing, balance, creativity, money made from your own efforts, and accurate self-value based on proper self-assessment. During ‘6’ years, balance and co-operation are the keys to living an authentic life and achieving long lasting goals. Opportunities are plentiful and there is an overabundance of luck. Additionally, there is help from the most unexpected people and places.

The first two months of the year provide us with an opportunity to scope out what we want the year to bring us and how we can best go about accepting and receiving it. Your message for this month is grouped together with cards of the same mode of energy expression. The communal spirit of the gathered energy of each mode of expression will help you commit to and dynamically support your efforts as you further immerse yourself in the powerfully manifesting energy of 2022. By combining the wisdom of this month’s message with your message from last month, you’ll find that you have all you need to make this your most prolific year ever!

The first Mercury retrograde of this year begins on January 14th and will end on February 3rd. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur. 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 introspection and research, 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.

 

For all of us:

 

“To risk is to risk appearing the fool. 

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.

To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.

To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk loss.

To love is to risk not being loved in return.

To live is to risk dying.

To try at all is to risk failure.

But to risk we must.

Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

The man, the woman, who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

and

 

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

Karl Lagerfeld

 

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20), THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20), JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) and THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) The energy of your mode of expression is action and activity oriented. You’ll better navigate your journey through this year by consciously and conscientiously taking responsibility for furthering your emotional, spiritual, and physical growth. During this year of high level creation, what you give your attention to will show you and the world what you’re energetically committed to. If you like the results of what you’re getting, keep doing what you’re doing. If you don’t like the results of your energy and actions, re-assess  the way you use your energy and what’s motivated you so far and then begin the process of constructive change. Either way, you may need a Mentor, Life Coach, and/or support group to help you successfully create your most desired goals this year. Your mantra for this phase is by Abraham Lincoln, “Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than the words. It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.”

       

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20), THE SUN (July 21 – August 22), THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) and THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) The energy of your mode of expression is best focused in a more introspective and personal manner. 2022 can bring you to a deeper relationship with yourself, your Higher Power, and others as you knowledgeably traverse the paths of enlightenment through introspection and transformation. By consciously embarking on this profound life adventure, you’ll become an adept at using your powerful gifts of intuition, empathy, and passion to become the person you’ve always known you could be. Your mantra for this phase is from Martin Buber, “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.”

 

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20), THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22), THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) and THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) The energy of your mode of expression is best utilized in the form of gathering and processing information that can then be used to help society evolve to higher levels of humanitarianism. By communicating your findings to others, you will benefit from strengthening your connections with your world. By so doing you’ll inspire and strengthen those winning aspects of yourself. Your mantra for this phase is, “Everything is energy. Your thought begins it, your emotion amplifies it, and your action increases the momentum.”

December 2021 Tarotscope

It’s December and in four short weeks, this year will come to a close. Did 2021 work out the way you’d hoped or planned? Did you grow and progress in all the ways you’d hoped on January 1st of this year? Did you make good use of the experience? Did you allow it to bend and shape you in the most beneficial ways possible?

As you close the door on one chapter of your life and open the door to unexplored territory and new experiences, take a look back at yourself and your 2021 journey. How will you take what you’ve experienced and learned and use it to help make the coming year, 2022, your most meaningful year ever?

Your message this month comes in the form of a quote or affirmation that will help you analyze and understand the experiences of this year and the value you received from them.

By so doing, you’ll learn how to use your 2021 experience to energize yourself, your hopes, wishes, and dreams in 2022. Use the empowering questions below to guide you in your review of 2021 and your preview of 2022:  

* Is there a message for me in this experience?
* What’s the gift in this situation?
* What can I learn from this?
* What’s the most loving thing I could do now?
* What’s the most important thing for me to focus on now?
* What would I do if I knew I could not fail?
* What would I do if there were nothing to fear?

For All of Us

“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 EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) “If you’re proactive, you don’t have to wait for circumstances or other people to create perspective expanding experiences. You can consciously create your own.” Stephen Covey

It’s November and as the year winds down, it’s time to take a look at how you’ve used the time and opportunities this year has given you. It’s also time to start laying the groundwork for next year, 2022. As you do so, it’s wise to remember this advice attributed to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it; Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

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 for now and forever:

 “Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make, makes you. Choose wisely.”  Roy T. Bennett

 

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Contrary to your usual way of operating, methodical patience and perseverance are your strongest allies at this time. You’re going through an important transformational phase and this phase has its own time schedule for completion. What you might normally call interference or delays are actually aids to your process, so please settle in and go with the flow.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) What you give your power to– either the fears of the past or the possibilities of the future– will determine your future. Take stock of where you are and what you want to accomplish and then commit to seeing it through to the end. In addition to achieving the success you want, you’ll grow and benefit in ways you never expected.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Now is the time to choose new energy power-brokers– vote indecision and self-doubt out of office. Ignore the vacuous opinions of those who aren’t on your path and pay attention to your own strong inner guidance. Heed it and discover the strength of your will and wisdom.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20)  As your ruling planet, the Moon, swirls its hazy aura around you, please remember that faith and hope are you guiding lights now. As mystifying as it all seems, what is happening now is happening for good reasons and those reasons will be revealed in due time, but for now, please remember that your guiding mantra is, “I have faith and trust in the perfect outcome for myself.”   

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Although there appears to be some ‘push back’ from the world around you, you’re learning a very valuable lesson—resistance is futile—and very often a time and energy waster. Do put one foot in front of the other and move co-operatively with your environment. There is no better time than now to adopt new, progressive habits.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your old associates are stepping up to assist you in your latest endeavors. Please let them give you a much needed hand. Though you are strong, you’ll benefit from the energy and perspective of other’s to help you manifest your dreams.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) You are an expert at caring for and about others. Now, it’s time to use your well-developed expertise for yourself. Your light is powerful and you can no longer hide it by only using it to help others. Personal courage and direct action are the partners you need with you as you create the next adventure of your life.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) You and many of your cohorts are engaged in a potentially adversarial ‘dance’ with reality right now. If you can accept that it’s time to combine your forces with unlikely allies and use this experience for your spiritual and worldly advancement, you’ll reap a series of bountiful rewards.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) This is a time of great change. Please remember that a Higher Authority is still in control and surrender to it. Be grateful as you ask for what you want and then, be gracious as you allow it to come to you in its own way and time.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) The choices you make now will lay the ground work for the events of the next few months. How do you want to show up in your life? Why and how you choose are as important as what you choose. Hint: choose with, wonder, wisdom, and faith.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) The planet Saturn is in your sign now. It insists that you go within and shine the light of consciousness on your previously hidden (from yourself) history. Knowledge is power and wealth– there is undiscovered treasure waiting for you there. You’ll be immensely helped in your quest if you enlist the help of others during this self-discovery tour.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) No matter how dramatic the situation gets, please pass the ‘drama crown’ to someone else. You’ll really benefit from remaining centered and grounded. Let others re-act. That way, the circumstances and others will be your supporting players as your stability commands the lead in your endeavors.

Mercury, the planet of communication, is retrograde until October 18th. Introspection and self-examination are the requirements of Mercury retrograde, no matter what sign it’s in. Please use this opportunity to consciously clear up and re-direct your thoughts and energies to what your soul and heart really want you to be and do. As with all Mercury retrogrades, plans and communications will take you on an Alice in Wonderland journey. This being a very intense, often confusing, emotional one, please remember to remain centered and grounded, no matter what. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation, and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can (and will!) occur. 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, 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.

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 for now and forever:

 Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make, makes you. Choose wisely.” Roy T. Bennett

 

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Sit back and reflect on your recent achievements. Enjoy the rest as you acknowledge and congratulate yourself for coming through an intense time. You’ve been true to your vision, so continue believing in yourself and following your inner guidance—you’re discovering and claiming rich, new personal territory.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20)  Change is your dance partner now, so analyzing your situation, “waiting until”, or living in theory no longer works for you. You’re between a rock and a hard place and you can’t go back to the past or divert your energy and attention with distractions—you must dance to the music that’s being played. Yes, there are obstacles, but they’re really the speed bumps you need to slow down and observe what’s taking place.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Your ruling planet, Mercury, is retrograde right now, so your current challenges are actually opportunities in disguise. By consciously dealing with these challenges, you’ll discover that you’re not powerless and ineffective. You’ll also discover just how deserving you are of the deep spiritual and emotional life that’s being offered you. Keep your own counsel and continue on your path. By year’s end, you’ll have something wonderful to celebrate!

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20)  Slow your pace—you’ll make better progress if you just focus on the task at hand. You’re doing all you can to achieve success, so keep your eyes on the prize, and let your intuition guide your pace and your footsteps. Help from unexpected sources will help you on your quest.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22)  This is a very fertile time for you. As you clear away the rubble of the past you’re being led to the circumstances that’ll help you fulfill your hopes, wishes, and dreams.  During this part of the journey, it’s important to pay attention to the wisdom of those who’ve gone before you. Heed their advice and experience; they’ll serve you well.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your ruling planet, Mercury, is retrograde right now, so the old adage, “Let go and let God,” has infinite value for you. Follow this simple, powerful advice and you’ll witness and participate in all manner of joy and wealth. As you more deeply know and appreciate who you are and what makes you tick, you’ll also allow yourself to easily embrace what works and to effortlessly release what doesn’t.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Mercury is retrograde in your sign, so please pay attention to what’s actually happening around you. Are you comfortable with the drama of this Astrological phenomena swirling around you? Whether the answer is “yes” or “no”, isn’t important– just being aware and taking appropriate action is. Be your own action hero and courageously take the path that’s most beneficial for you.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) This is a life altering time for you. Very little is in your control right now, so don’t fall into the trap of resigning yourself to the Fates. Despite how things may appear, this is the time to take decisive inner action and consciously engage one of your more powerful gifts– your will. Doing so will shift your perspective and the outcome.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) This is a good time to sort through your belief systems and discover the difference between what is your own truth and what is social and familial conditioning. By so doing, you’ll clearly see and be able to move forward based on what’s uniquely true for you.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) At times, it seems as though you’re engaged in an uphill struggle, but your efforts are paying off. Continue letting your actions speak for themselves and enjoy the well-deserved rewards. Influential people will step forward and offer help.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) During this time of reflection, re-examine your game plan– your goals, your efforts to bring them to fruition, what’s worked, and what hasn’t. Allow your ego to take a back seat and be honest with yourself. What you’ll discover will enable you to powerfully focus your energy and achieve the success that is so close at hand.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) The pressure you feel to release your hold on the past and let go of the belief systems of others is real and important– pay heed to it because you’re in the process of discovering the power of your own individual uniqueness. Be more analytical and less emotional as you make the decisions that will build the framework of your new life.

September 2021 Tarotscope

It’s the beginning of harvest season. What will you reap? How will you use your bounty? Be honest, thoughtful, and compassionate with yourself as you reflect on the past eight months. The choices you’ll make about your future are based on the inventory you take now.

Mercury, the great communicator, will go retrograde on September 27th. Plans and communications are likely to ‘go south’ weeks before its official start. Emotions can run high, so please focus on being peaceful and calm. Do practice some form of meditation and relaxation on a daily basis. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation, and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur. During the retrograde 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. The retrograde period is an excellent time for introspection and research, as those things that are usually hidden from view, show themselves more easily during a Mercury Retrograde period.  Wait until Mercury goes direct on October 18th before making any big decisions.

Your message this month comes in the form of a quote or affirmation.

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.” 

 

and for now and forever:

 

You Are Not for Everyone

The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, will point-blank not like you. But it is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. Talk to the people who can hear you. They are your people. You are not for everyone and that’s OK. Don’t waste your precious time and gifts trying  to convince them of your value, they won’t ever want what you’re selling. Don’t convince them to walk alongside you. You’ll be wasting both your time and theirs and will likely inflict unnecessary wounds, which will take precious time to heal. You are not for them and they are not for you; politely wave them on and continue along your way. Sharing your path with someone is a sacred gift; don’t cheapen it by rolling yours in the wrong direction. Keep facing your true north.
