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.

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

 THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) “Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.” Maya Angelou

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20)I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.” Kurt Vonnegut

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Within each of us lies the power of our consent to health and sickness, to riches and poverty, to freedom and to slavery. It is we who control these, and not another. What have you consented to?” Richard Bach

 THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) “Unless you are prepared to give up something valuable you will never be able to truly change at all, because you’ll be forever in the control of things you can’t give up.” Andy Law

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) “The world would have you agree with its dismal dream of limitation. But the Light would have you soar like the eagle of your sacred visions.” Alan Cohen

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) “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 STAR (January 20 – February 19) “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

MOON (February 20 – March 20) “Though the seas threaten, they are merciful. I have cursed them without cause.” William Shakespeare, “The Tempest”

November 2021 Tarotscope

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.

October 2021 Tarotscope

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.

 

THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) “I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. We are here to live, not to exist.” Jack London

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) “This is the real secret of life– to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” Alan Watts

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) “It is only when we no longer compulsively need someone that we can have a real relationship with them.” Anthony Storr

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) “There is only one real sin and that is to persuade oneself that the second best is anything but second best.” Doris Lessing

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) “No woman is required to build the world by destroying herself.”  Rabbi Soter

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) “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 MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) “There is nothing more notable in Socrates than that he found time, when he was an old man, to learn music and dancing, and thought it time well spent.” Michel de Montaigne

August 2021 Tarotscope

It’s August and the summer is half over. This month is ruled by The Sun card, which encourages you to be creative, relax, and listen to your heart. Instead of working to exhaustion, let The Sun guide you back to a time when what mattered was chilling out, exploring the countryside, and enjoying life. Go ahead– enjoy life from the perspective of not having a care in the world– your heart and soul will thank you!

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) The Universe is giving you quite a gift– becoming a Master of calmness and discernment. As you fully experience the effects of your choices, you’re also learning that How and Why you choose are just as important as What you choose.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Though the tumult continues, please remember that nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come. You are experiencing that phenomenon now. The changes occurring are paving the way for a better future. Your mission is to accept what is happening with grace and trust. Your key phrase is “I let go and let God.”

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) The words power, choice, and fulfillment are very meaningful to you right now. Those words are informing you of the opportunities and responsibilities that are available to you. Please take matters into your own hands, listen to your inner voice, and take advantage of the powerful energy presenting itself to you.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) You’re coming to the end of an important cycle in your life. Experience is teaching you that you must be willing to see things as they are and not as you’ve imagined them to be. This wake-up call is necessary and you’ll profit from the insights you gain about your life and the people in it. Your key word is “Clarity.”

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) The Universe is acknowledging you in a powerful way. Breathe a sigh of relief as you count your winnings. You must make an important decision for your present and future well-being, and that decision must come from your heart and nowhere else. Your key phrase is I am blessed.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Remember the lyrics of that wonderful old song, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”? That song is part of the soundtrack of your life right now. Learn the lyrics and sing it often. Things are changing and assistance will come from a surprise source.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) “Sing like no one’s listening, love like you’ve never been hurt, dance like nobody’s watching, and live like it’s heaven on earth”, is your mantra. Repeat it to yourself as you risk making the necessary commitments to manifest your deepest desires. The groundwork you have laid in the past is your foundation– build on it and you will see positive results before the holidays.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Your efforts are beginning to pay off. ‘Stay the course’ as you take your bows and accept well-deserved rewards. Someone from the past returns, wanting ‘another chance’.  Reminder– issues of the past are often better left in the past.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Though life seems intense right now, please avoid the negative emotions that cause you to project unnecessary stress onto your present-day life. Give yourself the gift of going within and listening to your inner voice as you discover the peace that’s developing within.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Your fertile period continues and your ideas are becoming more valuable now. With proper planning, the support of appropriate actions, and focus, faith, and follow-through– the bounties will roll in!  Your mantra is “Life is what you make it”.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Stand in the center of what you have created and take stock of your situation. You are your greatest asset and the best person to decide the course of your destiny. Rely on your intuitive sense for guidance and you will not fail.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Don’t dissipate your energy by telling others of your plans– just enact them! Like newly planted seeds, your ideas and plans need time to grow and take root without the negativity of those who don’t share your vision. Keep your focus on the positive and you’ll have reason to celebrate.

July 2021 Tarotscope

It’s summer for those in the Northern hemisphere and winter for those in the Southern hemisphere, which means that we’re still in the pivotal time of the year where we need to ask the important questions, “Where am I? What’s motivating me? What matters to me? What do I stand for and against?”

Please continue going within and exploring. The answers that come up for you will help define and guide you during this second half of the year.

And keep in mind that even though Mercury is no longer retrograde, we’re enduring a messy break-up. It’s not letting go easily, so please make sure you check that you’re dotting your “i’s” and crossing your “t’s”.

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.”  Kahlil 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) It’s now the time to thoughtfully process all that you’ve experienced lately in order to put it in its proper place in your life. Enjoy the experience and prepare to appreciate the upcoming adventure—you will soon be off on another quest that promises to reveal an exciting new chapter of life for you.

THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) Life is tumultuous right now and it’s important to make sure you’re grounded. During these interesting and unpredictable times, remember to be interesting and unpredictable. Live in the moment and approach life with your senses and arms open. You’ll encounter memorable surprises and have enlightening moments of awareness.

THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) The energy and efforts of the last few months are beginning to show results. Make sure you attend to the details and continue to listen to and follow your intuition.  There are many opportunities for your growth and advancement right now and it’s important for you to pay attention to the signs that pop up for you. What you see and sense will provide you with excellent guidance.

THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) The experiences of the past few weeks have been invaluable. One of those lessons learned—holding your mind and senses still long enough to decipher what’s really happening. This new way of being creates an excellent opportunity for you to know yourself as you begin to manifest that which is of value to you in the world.

THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Remaining focused and taking appropriate action are your strongest allies right now. No matter what happens, keep your eyes on your goals and keep moving methodically in the direction of your dreams. Remember to ask for and accept mundane and Divine Guidance. As you advance toward the completion of your quest, you’ll discover that there was/is a Plan and you’re on course to actualize it.

THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) During what feels like a long, intense journey, you have grown on all levels. Please pause and look around– you’ll be able to see how far you’ve come. As you evaluate your life from this new perspective, you’ll begin to see that life doesn’t have to be a wrestling match. Now is the time to reflect and reassess your journey as you take control of your new future.

JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Your momentum is strong and your trajectory is clear. Strengthen them by consciously acknowledging your efforts and results. It’s almost time to celebrate your soon to be victories, so do remember that balance and self-trust are two of your most powerfully learned lessons from this experience—use them as you begin to live your best life.

THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) This is a time of manifestation for you. Your words, energy, and actions are powerful and what you ask for, you are very likely to receive. Please make sure that you are specific in your requests and always express your gratitude. ‘Thank You’ is magical and magnetic.

THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Are you resisting one of life’s inevitable forces—change? It’s time to ask yourself, “Why?” It could be that you’re resisting out of habit and fear. It’s time for you to stop resisting and begin an enriching journey of gentle compliance.  Doing so will enable you to go with the flow of empowering, dynamic energy as well as reap the benefits of your actions.

THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) The Universe is strongly urging you to take “the next big step.” Please set aside your “reasons” for not moving forward and take the actions necessary to shepherd you through this current phase of your process. As you do so, you’ll discover a whole new self-confident self and lots of validating achievement.

THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Yea! You’ve learned to be true to yourself and your goal.  You’re achieving things you would never have thought possible in the past. Be careful not to minimize yourself or your achievements and do remember to treat yourself to a well-deserved reward. You’re your time, so please enjoy your victory with joy, grace, and gratitude.

THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) The last few years have been tough. Thankfully, that phase of experience is winding down and you can begin to pay attention to how well you’ve matured. During this “resting” phase, be kind to yourself as you begin preparing for the time when living and learning become a joy again. Do look in the mirror and thank yourself for doing the work that got you here.

June 2021 Tarotscope

We’ve reached the middle of the year. That’s summer for those in the Northern hemisphere and winter for those in the Southern hemisphere. This is a pivotal time no matter where you’re located.

The important questions, though, are, “Where are you? What’s motivating you? What matters to you?”

Take this time and season to go within and explore. The answers that come up for you will help you as you move into the second half of the year.

Our old friend, Mercury retrograde, will help us rediscover ourselves and our truth.

Mercury will be retrograde until June 22nd. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation, and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur. If you can, please 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.

This month’s (and season’s) message comes in the form of a song. Some of the songs will have a special meaning for you and some of them are here just for the joy of it. I encourage you to listen to your song and any others that call out to you.
