Scorpio (Water): Five of Pentacles

Scorpio Five of Pentacles.JPG

Dearest Scorpio,

You have a strong intuitive pull to the path that you feel serves your highest purpose, and a sense of the sacred just beside you, though your most immediate relationships may not be mirroring the trajectory you want to be on right now. As an empath and a healer, you magnetize the unhealed, unprocessed energy of others, and while you have the capacity to be a guide for others along your Way, be sure that this doesn’t pull you in the opposite direction of it. Check in with yourself — in what ways is your internal compass being fogged by your human environment? What needs of yours are not being met, or even neglected, by allowing unequal power dynamics into your life? You have the divine right to be discerning about who you allow into your space. The people we surround ourselves with can distract us or focus us — walk with those that have their hearts turned towards the same place as you.

Sagittarius (Fire): Nine of Swords

Sagittarius Nine of Swords.JPG

Dearest Sagittarius,

In what ways can you allow your grieving for what has been to move through you more fluidly? A grief set aside will not effortlessly dissipate; the devastation will stagnate in us until we sincerely witness the ways our losses left an impact. Sit with yourself compassionately and gently. Allow your grief to become a current, moving through you so completely that it brings you that much closer to the heart of yourself. Unblocking the space left behind by a loss creates a doorway for new beginnings to be set into motion. The waning of the moon is present for you now to assist in your releasing.

-

Capricorn (Earth): Five of Wands (Reversed)

Capricorn Five of Wands Reversed.JPG

Dearest Capricorn,

When all of those involved in a conflict are looking towards others for the blame of the present situation, the dynamic plateaus to a state of aggression and defensiveness. In order to shift the conversation to a place of listening, resolution, and empathy, check in with yourself — in what ways are you contributing to the toxic dynamics around you? Be a guiding force by taking accountability for your own actions, words, and behaviors, acknowledging what led to those frustrations, and how you can communicate your feelings and needs in a way that will be received more clearly. If others devalue, disrespect, or ignore your experience, stand in the ground of your truth or walk away. You do not owe a community your energy, time, or labor if they do not serve you in the way you serve them. The future home of your chosen family (both extended and immediate) is waiting for you.

-

Aquarius (Air): Knight of Pentacles

Aquarius Knight of Pentacles.JPG

Dearest Aquarius,

When you set your mind to a goal, you persistently and immediately bring thought into action, which is powerful in your personal manifestation abilities, but places a higher responsibility in being discerning about what it is you set your mind to. Check in with yourself — how can you nurture your spirit of moving about the world freely, while remaining careful, respectful, and dependable in relation to others? Widen your sensitivity to the spacial and emotional needs of those around you, so that each person’s will can exist at the same level. The will of one can unintentionally cross the boundaries or oppose the comfort-levels of others. Your perception is just as valid as those with different experiences as you — there needs to be room for everyone here.

Pisces (Water): Three of Wands

Pisces Three of Wands.JPG

Dearest Pisces,

After months without seeing where this seemingly endless path would lead you, a horizon is finally entering your field of vision. Regardless of appearances, or lack of external accumulation, your work until this point was not done in vain. Bask in this dawn — you are approaching unknown territory equipped with all of the resources, knowledge, and skills it will take to get through it. The obstacles you traversed to get here have prepared and strengthened you for an awe-inspiring journey ahead. While the road behind you was walked primarily in solitude, supportive, fulfilling companionships will be there to meet you on the road ahead. Your heart-center yearns to burst open.

-

Aries (Fire): The High Priestess (Reversed)

Aries The High Priestess.JPG

Dearest Aries,

In what ways can your bridge polarity-oriented thinking into a more holistic, non-dual perspective of yourself and your surroundings? Plant yourself firmly in the seat between the material and the nonmaterial, between rest and creation, between the body, its memory, and its dreams. Leaning towards one side of the spectrum in all of your activities will create a veil between you and the other side. While you need not justify or identify with your apparent opposite, a lived, experiential perspective will better inform your ability to embrace or combat what is needed rather than rejecting its existence altogether.

-

Taurus (Earth): Eight of Cups

Taurus Eight of Cups.JPG

Dearest Taurus,

You may currently be experiencing a prominent feeling of completion with your present circumstances — your purpose feels fulfilled, your energy exerted, and a different way of living now calling to you. Whether you’re feeling the need to gradually tie up loose ends, or leave everything behind all at once, depart at the pace that feels truest to you. When you move at your natural rhythm, the rest of the universe will come to meet you half way. If the shift in your environment appears to be happening suddenly, the voice of your intuition has been pointing you towards this for a while; the longer it takes, the louder your intuition will get, and the more chaotic the present situation will become. Trust that the cycles of the seasons are supporting you in this process. You are always in relationship with your environment — what environment feels the most aligned with your spirit? And how can you make the adjustments to move towards that every day?

-

Gemini (Air): Ten of Pentacles

Gemini Ten of Pentacles.JPG

Dearest Gemini,

This is a powerful time for recultivating your connection to your lineage. If you get the chance, create a small altar with representations of the land closest to your heritage (such as plants, foods, photos, and textiles), and hand-drawn depictions of the ways you imagine your great-great-great grandparents to have lived. Meditate with this space, and consider what ways you can call in the holistic traditions of your ancestors into your practice. The harmony of togetherness comes though both your loved ones surrounding and the story you carry through each generation.

Cancer (Water): Ace of Cups

Cancer Ace of Cups.JPG

Dearest Cancer,

You are reaching new spiritual heights, integrating your insights into your practice and identity, bridging the distance between reasoning, emotion, wisdom, and action. The heavy experiences you’ve been processing lately have softened the border between yourself and the world. You are being seen, heard, and understood — the speech that you are externalizing coming from a clear and honest reflection of you. In what ways can you open your heart to the abundance that wants to give back to you? You are emanating so much serenity — you deserve to receive the same in return.

Leo (Fire): The Chariot

Leo The Chariot.JPG

Dearest Leo,

Our growth often occurs in a circle instead of upward, opening and expanding, deepening ourselves and softening each edge. No matter how much progress we make in one direction of our lives, we may continue to encounter certain lessons over and over. Growth and retraction go hand in hand. In what ways can you be more gentle with yourself when you engage in a thought-pattern or behavior you thought you had healed from? Ruminating on what went wrong or the ways that you wish you could have done things differently will not alter the events that have already taken place. Alleviating harm will only come by witnessing yourself, learning from the impact, and moving forward more intentionally. You have so much strength and potential to continue. We are constantly being pulled in multiple directions by external forces — check in with your center, react from that place, and keep your gaze focused on what is true to you.
 

Virgo (Earth): The Fool

Virgo The Fool.JPG

Dearest Virgo,

There is a hidden line of grace that weaves its way through the spontaneity of your spirit. What may appear to others as chaos, or as a lack of direction, is a finely attuned movement of your internal compass in alignment with nature. You are the wind as much as you are the soil beneath it, which doesn’t always need a rational explanation. In what way can you look more towards yourself to validate your intuition opposed to seeking the approval of others? Your decisions are informed by a greater call to spirit, and only you need to understand the direction of your heart.

Libra (Air): Ten of Wands

Libra Ten of Wands.JPG

Dearest Libra,

The weight of your experiences has gradually been chipping away at the well of your physical energy, though your determination and will-power are endlessly pushing you forward. Check in with yourself — what weights can you put down for now in order to lighten their authority over your capacity and rhythm? You have divine guidance, and an access to the life-energy so much bigger than you. Continue to call in your spiritual and personal power, and the warmth of this life-force will move through you with the strength of the sun.

Libra: Page of Swords (Reversed)

Libra Page of Swords Reversed.jpg

Dearest Libra,

If you’ve been having any intuitions that a person or a situation in your life is posing a threat to your safety, stability, and peace of mind, listen to that instinct. While your reasoning-mind may have a tendency to ignore your gut-feelings or shrug them off as paranoia, your intuition is constantly assessing your environment, soaking in the red flags and subtle signals that our conscious mind may be unaware of. When your inner voice is signaling that it’s time to leave — leave. When your inner voice is signaling that it’s time to be — be. Your awareness of your surroundings is keen and admirable, and as you unravel into the space you’ve breathed into yourself, be weary of those that are attempting to invade your energy. Take a pause in the openness and check in with yourself — where are the areas of your life where you can be more discerning about who you let in? You’ve created such a sacred, harmonious space for yourself, and you have the divine right to protect your heart.

Scorpio: The Empress (Reversed)

Scorpio The Empress Reversed.jpg

Dearest Scorpio,

In alignment with the harvest moon on October 5th, you are in a position of growing, of reaping, of creating. All of the energy that you pour into the world around you seeps into the soil, nourishes the earth, and returns to your communities in abundance. You are moving through the seasons of cyclical, external output — are you caring for yourself in the same way you care of others? Are you allowing yourself to rest? If you do not take the time to nurture your mental health, your giving-nature will deplete you. Let the earth help and heal you for a change. She has so much she wants to give you in gratitude of your labor and presence with her.

-

Sagittarius: Six of Pentacles (Reversed)

3AB34119-712B-4390-BE45-8B1053443312.jpg

Dearest Sagittarius,

Where are the areas of your life where you can be more giving? Where you can distribute the resources that you’ve accumulated that you no longer use or need? Your urge to hold onto all that you’ve found, been given, or worked for may stem from a time of scarcity that you’ve experienced in your life, but right now, it’s throwing off the balance of a fluid exchanging of resources. The anxiety of lack is loud and real, which sometimes hinders us from sharing what is within our reach, but by extending your reach to others, your heart will open to a larger network of interdependence. Loosen your grip on your material possessions, and trust that as you move forward, you will cross paths with what you need, when you need it. Why harvest everything at once?

 

Capricorn: Queen of Cups

Dearest Capricorn,

Capricorn Queen of Cups.jpg

Solitude is serving you well at this time, which is giving you the space to harness your personal power for the coming seasons. You are in harmony with the elements, which mirrors your relationship with your emotions and dreams. What have you experienced recently that is still asking to be processed? Now would be the perfect time to start a dream journal — when you first wake up each morning, write down anything you can remember from your dreams the previous night, and see which dimensions of yourself you can go further into. You’re showing up for yourself in so many ways, and gaining internal strength because of it.

Aquarius: The Star

Aquarius The Star.jpg

Dearest Aquarius,

You sweet star, moving wildly through the cosmos — allow yourself to feel your emotions fully, while remaining grounded with reality, in tune with your senses, and moving towards the direction of your dreams. After all that you’ve lost, left, and been left by, go forth with hope, intuition leading the way. When you’re feeling uncertain, call on your spirit and animal guides to assist you. If you’re feeling any major blocks, check in with yourself — what excess can you shed from your life to clear the channel between you and your inner wisdom? The transformations you’ve undergone this year are attuning you to everything around you, which is slowly manifesting the environment you’ve been envisioning. You are a part of something so much bigger than you.

 

Pisces: Knight of Swords

Pisces Knight of Swords.jpg

Dearest Pisces,

You are so, so brave for moving forward on the path that you’re on. You are shedding toxic habits, focusing on your goals, and ready to face any challenges that come your way. Reorienting your trajectory and prioritizing those you love is filling your heart with a newfound sense of purpose. Be transparent with your intentions, and assertive about your needs, staying clear of any aggression or forcefulness (on both ends). People are looking to you as an influence — level-headedness will serve you well at this time.

 

Aries: King of Cups

55B3B5D1-D5B9-428A-B074-5F9D7623EA43.jpg

Dearest Aries,

What practices help you feel the most connected to your life-force? As often as you can, set aside the time for these grounding rituals, whether it is through creative expression, physical activity, or connecting with others. Your vitality is being restored at this time, and the more that you honor yourself, the more you’ll be able to show up for your responsibilities in the fullest way. Your recent experiences have matured and softened you, allowing you to be a more humble leader. The chaos of the year is finally starting to settle — you deserve to pause with the foundation you’ve laid for yourself.

Taurus: Nine of Swords

Taurus Nine of Swords.jpg

Dearest Taurus,

In order to take the next step, you must first be with this one. There is nowhere you need to rush to now. What parts of your body and memory are asking for your attention? Allow yourself to witness the grief and the anger in your disappointments and losses. The heaviness will remain until you give yourself the chance to sit with them. Your pain is valid and real and present for you to help you look at what is causing it, and as uncomfortable as it is, and even if the root of the ache never leaves you, your presence will gradually alleviate the weight. Be with your emotional energy without judgment, and harness that power towards your next step. When you are ready, reach out to those you love, and tap into your networks of support. You will get through this.

Gemini: Knight of Wands

Gemini Knight of Wands.jpg

Dearest Gemini,

You are in a period of transition — you’ve felt the pull to move, and you’re following your intuition without hesitation. When you feel complete with your purpose in a given situation, like a fruit that has ripened, you leave the vine. Now that you’re moving, where can you go where you can nourish others with the experiences you’ve gained? You don’t need to necessarily take root anywhere permanently — your impact right now is in giving yourself fully to each place you go, and immersing in the environment with sincere curiosity. Staying attuned to what you need, and where you are needed, is in full alignment with the cosmos right now.

Cancer: Six of Wands

Cancer Six of Wands.jpg

Dearest Cancer,

The harmony of your environment is dependent, in part, to your relationship with it. Your capacity to influence your surroundings is interwoven with your awareness of the inequity, injustice, and toxicity that takes place. By remaining sensitive to social dynamics, and voicing these observations, you shed a light for others on what adjustments are needed. In what ways can you continue to take care of yourself when the energy of the room is becoming too thick? While your natural inclination may be to tune out the overwhelming noise, which distances you from your environment, remain a steady witness and walk away when you need to. Find a space to retreat where each of its facets nourish you.

-

Leo: Ace of Wands (Reversed)

1DA05577-71E6-4245-9713-886B72981986.jpg

Dearest Leo,

The transformations that you’ve experienced this past year want to be expressed and brought further into fruition. In what ways can you integrate your spiritual insights more completely in your daily life? You’ve undergone tremendous internal growth, but your environment has remained relatively unchanged. If your reasoning-mind is blocking the reception of such things, see where you can surrender your intellect a bit more to what nature and the spirit world hope to gift you. What you are feeling in the present is a stemming from a wisdom larger than the mind’s conditioned responses. Denial and inflexibility will only lead you further into this feeling of stagnation. The energy of change is on your side — you are safe to move with it.

-

Virgo: The Hanged Man (Reversed)

Virgo The Hanged Man Reversed.jpg

Dearest Virgo,

Being rigidly bound to judgments of the material world, opposed to working with and responding to them, is magnifying a feeling of isolation in you. When the ways that we communicate do not inspire empathy in others, we often feel alone in what we are feeling. How can you communicate in a way that creates a bridge between your experience and that of another’s? While your unique experiences can feel like they separate you from your surroundings, they also carry potential for healing them. Allow yourself to become a vessel for justice, for empathy, and for envisioning a more harmonious way for relating with each other.

Virgo: Ace of Swords (Reversed)

virgo.jpg

Dearest Virgo,

Now is the time for you to step further into a position of receiving. A message from an outside source is on its way to you — in a focused, intentional way — and as you open yourself to the reception of it, a part of you that has been in you since birth will finally be given the room to develop. Growth is your birth-right, and the Earth intends to assist you in a way that does not demand much of your labor. It is in your stillness and receptivity that you will bear the fruits of all you’ve been cultivating up until now. If you are overly forceful, or run towards what you’ve been seeking, you will hit a wall of disappointment and leave yourself prematurely vulnerable.

 

Libra: Nine of Wands (Reversed)

libra.jpg

Dearest Libra,

You have reached a safe-enough position to look away from all that is protecting you, yet what is being required of you at this time is asking that you remain vigilant and prepared for all unexpected encounters. Be mindful of any falls towards carelessness — of forgetting your sense of watchfulness — as all that you’ve learned will inform the ways you move forward. Be proud of yourself for all all you have scaled, all you have built, all you have left behind in order to reach this time of protection. The Earth is supporting this shield to protect you at this time. Any force that wishes you harm would have to cross mountains to get to you. You are incredibly perseverant, and the cosmos are taking notice.

Scorpio: Ten of Pentacles (Reversed)

Scorpio.jpg

Dearest Scorpio,

You are currently in a position where you are witnessing the growth and abundance of those around you, yet you feel yourself in a place of stagnancy and loss. Be weary of brewing to the point of bitterness in your consumption of the lives of others. This position of stillness is serving you at this time, as you find yourself surrounded by an environment that contains what is necessary for your purpose. Focus on your own foundation-building, and the comforts that root you at home, and you will develop the strength that is necessary to rejoin the world. The door is already open for you.

Sagittarius: The Moon (Reversed)

sag.jpg

Dearest Sagittarius,

While you typically find yourself directed by the people and opportunities that are presented to you, now is the time for you play an active role in choosing your direction. Forge your own path and become your own ocean. You are as much in a relationship with the elements as the moon. If there is a project or a place that has been calling you towards it for a while, now is the time to make the pilgrimage. Trust your instincts to guide you towards all that is unresolved in the unconscious realms of yourself. Be discerning between what seeks to distract you and what feels true to you. You are illuminating your own way.

Capricorn: Two of Wands (Reversed)

Dearest Capricorn,

An undeveloped side of you is presuming itself to be looking at the world in its entirety at this time, but the position you’re in is obstructing your vision. This incomplete picture of the world is blocking the World behind it. You are under the impression that the world is in your hands, that you are in complete control, when reality is requesting more of a state of surrender. Examine your systems of thought and conditioning, and walk towards a fuller, more holistic perspective of the people around you. In doing stepping a bit down, in being closer to the Earth, you will leave behind a piece of yourself that no longer serves you, while bringing forth a stronger, more integral part of yourself.

Aquarius: The Empress (Reversed)

aquarius.jpg

Dearest Aquarius,

All of those long, seemingly endless days of doing are catching up to you, though your work was not done in vain. When you finally take a necessary, well-deserved moment of rest, the life you have been cultivating will have the chance to flourish without demanding of your involvement in each step. Trust that your insights, work, and teachings left an invaluable impression. With every life you touch you set something magic into motion; it’s okay to take a step back once in a while and enjoy your own harvest. Appreciate all you have accomplished and facilitated, though be mindful to consume in moderation else you risk falling quickly into scarcity again.

Pisces: The Chariot (Reversed)

pisces.jpg

Dearest Pisces,

You often sense various forces pulling you in opposite directions of each other, and in order to maintain the path of your choosing, you are being called to further merge the spiritual and material dimensions of yourself. When you allow the material realm to pull you too heavily, you fall off course. When you allow the spirit realm to pull you too heavily, you risk losing ground. This is not a time to release the reigns and let the reigns blindly pull you. Maintain awareness and a sensitivity to the present so you may move with the obstacles as they come.

Aries: Page of Wands (Reversed)

aries.jpg

Dearest Aries,

Look at you go! You have been branching into unknown realms, moving more confidently in solitude, and in turn your connection with your inner compass has strengthened. Becoming attuned to this was no easy feat, and although you’ve come a long way, you haven’t quite created a lasting foundation. You’re in a vulnerable position where you can really go in multiple directions at this point. Others are drawn to this newly discovered independence in you, so stand your ground and assert your ability to say “no” when unresonant opportunities present themselves to you. There are still so many parts of yourself to explore.

Taurus: Seven of Pentacles (Reversed)

taurus.jpg

Dearest Taurus,

Your giving and receiving energies have not been in balance lately, and because of this, those in the giving-spectrum are left feeling depleted, while those in the receiving spectrum are left with much more than they know what to do with. Be sure to set aside enough for yourself when you offer the fruits of your labor, while also being mindful not to accumulate more than you need in the material dimensions of your life. You will feel drained of the emotional labors you so readily offer, yet weighed down by an intuitive sense of wastefulness in these other areas. These patterns will not sustain itself, and for the sake of your mental, emotional, and physical well-being, it’s time for you to reevaluate your exchanges of energy.

Gemini: Ace of Cups (Reversed)

gemini.jpg

Dearest Gemini,

Your heart is coming forth in a way that is overflowing into every dimension of your life. The labors of your internal work have cleared the way for your authentic voice, and standing in your center in this way serves others by inspiring them to do the same. In each of your actions, when you speak from the highest expression of you, you light up the parts of others that were otherwise dormant. You are needed at this time. In being nourished, you have also become the nourisher.

Cancer: Seven of Wands (Reversed)

cancer.jpg

Dearest Cancer,

You’ve been taking on more than your energy-levels have the capacity for at this time, which is causing a great deal of anxiety. You’re doing a delicate dance between taking care of your responsibilities, and pushing yourself towards constant output, and sooner than later it will wear you out. Imagine the ways you can rearrange your life so that you can focus on one thing at a time. By giving each action your undivided attention, you will show up for your work, for others, and yourself with the presence and care you are capable of.

Leo: Seven of Cups (Reversed)

leo.jpg

Dearest Leo,

You’ve been carefully examining the layers of your consciousness; paying attention to your dreams, processing childhood traumas, and looking at the ways that you envision a life well-lived. Unravelling yourself in this way has revealed aspects of yourself that are daunting and uncomfortable to look at, so take your time with this process, looking only when you are ready, knowing that you will always have the room to carry each part of you. You are vast and you are always enough.

August Tarotscopes

AUGUST TAROTSCOPES by Jillann Morlan  

Spirit Speak Tarot Deck by Mary Elizabeth Evans


 

ARIES // Six of Wands, reversed   

If you’re getting too familiar with feeling stuck, and consistently struggling to reach your goals in a way that feels authentic and expansive to you, maybe it’s time to rethink the path you’re on altogether.  Why do you do what you do, Aries?  Why that job?  Why that degree?  Why that creative project?  Why that collaboration?  We all need work and relationships that sustain our basic needs, but beyond the realms of necessity and comfort, what motivates you to get up every morning?  Be willing to ask yourself these questions this month.  Our ego makes sure that our needs are met, but our higher self is the force that provides us with the insights we need to align with our authenticity, find our true purpose, and evolve.  With a full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th, as well as, a full solar eclipse on August 21st, the time is ripe for some deep soul-searching.  This cosmic climate is likely to shake things up in all areas our lives, and anything that is no longer serving us, both individually and collectively, will be brought to the surface for further examination whether we’re ready to do the work or not.  Do the work, Aries.  Commit to connecting with your higher self.  Ask for guidance.  Create space for stillness and listen to the sweetest and most soulful callings coming from deep within your heart.  This is where you will find the wisdom that will set you free.

TAURUS // Ten of Swords  

The human brain fires off some 60,000 thoughts per day.  In a world where we are increasingly inundated with new information and consistently reaching peak levels of overstimulation, how do you find inner calm and connect with your authentic voice?  There are more ways to disseminate and digest knowledge than ever before, but how do you connect to your personal truth, Taurus?  Can you confidently distinguish your inner voice from all of the mental chatter?  It’s Leo season, and a wonderful time for igniting your inner fire and getting in touch with your wild side, but the month of August also brings with it an intense cosmic climate complete with a full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th, as well as, the much-anticipated full solar eclipse on August 21st.  This is difficult astrology, but its challenges, if met with an open mind and heart, have the potential to more fully align you with your authenticity and launch you forward into the next phase of your life.  This astrology is all about profound inner growth and expansion.  Don’t believe every fear that your mind throws your way this month, Taurus.  Show yourself compassion if you start to downward spiral.  Stay with it.  Be gentle.  Be willing to truly feel through all of your feelings.  This is not a time for judgment.  This is a time for quieting the mind so that you can fully hear the authentic whispers of your heart come through.

GEMINI // Ten of Wands, reversed  

Are you feeling overworked, overloaded, or overwhelmed Gemini?  Take some time this month to fully check in with yourself.  What do your days look like?  How much time is devoted to work?  How much time is devoted to play?  How much time is devoted to pleasure?  How do you usually feel when you wake up?  How do you usually feel when you go to sleep?  Answer these questions, truthfully, and then ask yourself what the answers to these same questions would be if you had complete control over the 24 hours you have each day.  Compare your answers and see if there are any obvious areas where you can make changes in order to align with your most authentic self and balance your daily input and output of energy.  Let this information marinate in your mind.  Open your heart and be willing to receive advice on how to best move forward.  With a full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th, and a full solar eclipse on August 21st, the cosmic climate this month is intense and transformative.  This is a perfect time for reassessing your goals and realigning with your truth, but it isn’t the time to push ahead or jump to any conclusions.  Let loose a little bit this month, Gemini, and let yourself be guided.  There are signs all around waiting to show you the way.  Stay open and show the universe that you are willing to receive them.

CANCER // Ace of Cups  

Your deep emotional life is one of your greatest strengths, Cancer, but it’s important that you maintain inner balance and remain clear when it comes to distinguishing between feelings and facts.  With eclipse season well underway, we’re all likely to be feeling a bit scattered and ungrounded in body, mind, and spirit.  Although eclipse season will surely bring with it some confusion and upheaval, ultimately, it will gift us with the transformative energies we need in order to shed anything and everything that is no longer serving us and fully step up into an expansive new phase of our lives.  However, in order to reap the benefits of this time and experience the personal healing and transformation that we need, we must also be willing to lean into the discomfort that it may cause us.  Expect emotions to run wild this month, Cancer, and don’t be afraid to express them.  Come back to center by honoring everything that you are feeling and engage in conscious acts of release.  Let the tears flow.  Feel the fury.  Smash things.  Write letters for the sole purpose of burning them.  Move your body.  Assert your power.  Deep emotions call for deep release.  Don’t hold onto anything this month.  Once you have returned to a state of greater equilibrium, and the cosmic climate has calmed down, you will be afforded clarity with regard to the way forward.  Rise to the challenge, carry on, and you will receive the incredible rebirth that comes after release.

LEO // Ace of Swords  

Happy Birthday, Leo!  It’s your season, and there are multiple energies aligning to provide you with an extra surge of inspiration, creativity, and mental clarity.  August is sure to be an enlightening and empowering month for you, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have to put in any work.  With a full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th, as well as, the full solar eclipse on August 21st, the cosmic climate this month invites us all to do some emotional heavy-lifting and deep soul-searching.  This astrology is likely to bring about heightened sensitivity, intense purging of the past, and incredible intuitive insights, all which are meant to help us clear out anything that is no longer serving us, so that we can step into the spotlight of our magic and potential.  Be willing to do what it takes this month in order to align with your authentic voice and let your light shine forth, Leo.  As one of the most extroverted and driven signs of the zodiac, you already possess an innate power to be seen and succeed at accomplishing your dreams.  Get in tune with what motivates you on a deep soul level this month.  Be out in the world.  Show up for yourself with pride and joy in your heart.  Radiate love and compassion from a place of authenticity, and you will surely attract an abundance of new insights, opportunities and connections that will propel you forward at rapid speed.

VIRGO // Page of Pentacles, reversed  

What do you have your sights set on, Virgo?  What do you consistently long for?  How do you feel about your current state of affairs?  How do you feel about the current state of your body, mind, and spirit?  With an intense and potentially transformative cosmic climate this month, we’re all being asked to take inventory of where we’re at in order to assess what needs to be released before we can fully move forward.  In truth, this is the cyclical way of things.  We are constantly reassessing in order to release and reset, so that we can get closer to our truest desires and most authentic selves.  However, with eclipse season upon us, we are now invited to go even deeper with this work – much, much deeper.  This is a time to honor the ways in which you feel stuck.  This is a time to honor your blocks, failures, fears, and all the ways in which you prevent yourself from moving forward in all areas of your life.  Honor the pain and the feelings of unworthiness, so that you can finally get beyond them.  This month invites you up into the magical and healing energy of transcendence.  You don’t have to have it all figured out in order to act, Virgo.  Be willing to transcend your own mind.  Stop the mental chatter.  Do your personal work, send some wishes into the atmosphere and trust that miracles are unfolding all around you.

LIBRA // Five of Pentacles  

Have you been holding on a little too tightly to an outmoded belief, toxic relationship, or way of being in the world that isn’t fully aligned with your authentic self?  How would you describe your relationship to change, Libra?  What fears do you have surrounding acts of complete release?  Whether you’re ready for it or not, this month will bring with it a profound purging energy.  We officially welcomed in eclipse season with the new moon on July 23rd, but we’ll be gaining momentum with a full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th, and a full solar eclipse on August 21st.  The transformative energies that this cosmic climate brings with it will occur on both a conscious and unconscious level, but the more you can connect with your intuitive nature during this time the better.  Although we need to consciously create time and space to connect with our intuition, this process shouldn’t feel restrictive. Maybe connecting with your inner self looks like sitting on a meditation pillow in a dark room.  Maybe it looks like singing at the top of your lungs, or maybe it looks like dancing with the people who truly see you.  Intuition is a language of the heart.  Connecting with your intuition is whatever feels authentic and expansive to you.  Hone the practices that make you feel most free this month.  Go inward and listen for what needs to truly leave, and then be willing to finally let it go.

SCORPIO // The World

Eclipse season is well underway with a full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th, and the much-anticipated full solar eclipse on August 21st.  It is a truly transformative time of intense endings and new beginnings, and the personal energy that you are working with this month will only amplify this time of transition, Scorpio.  Whether you are currently completing a cycle or beginning a new one, stay open to receiving guidance and support with regard to what needs to be fully released from your life at this time.  What do you need to let go of in order for you to more fully embrace this time of expansive change?  What personal blocks keep resurfacing and preventing you from living the life of your dreams?  What recurring patterns can you recognize in yourself that may be keeping you from moving forward?  Be willing to do this work, but remember that this isn’t a blame game.  Be kind to yourself.  Inner work calls for deep compassion.  Remember that healing isn’t a linear process.  You may feel okay with your past or current circumstances one day, and then feel bogged down by them the next.  This is okay!  Get curious about your current state of affairs, but refrain from judgment.  The important thing is to stay open to all of your experiences and know that things are always moving, shifting and evolving.  Trust that your life is in place and believe in the changes that are heading your way.

SAGITTARIUS // Ace of Wands  

There’s an immense amount of fiery, passionate, creative energy coming your way this month, Sagittarius.  It’s time to lean in, let go, and get wild!  Now is not the time to second-guess, take a back seat, or play small in any way shape or form.  Don’t be afraid to be out in the world and let your authentic light shine.  With the full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th, and the full solar eclipse on August 21st, we’re all sure to be receiving some intense intuitive downloads.  Stay open to any inspirations or insights that come your way during this time.  If some seemingly outlandish ideas come in, don’t judge them too quickly.  Be willing to sit with your creative insights for some time before writing them off completely.  If you feel resistant to any changes that your higher self wishes to employ, get curious about the fears or insecurities that may be causing you discomfort.  The ego prefers familiarity because it equates familiarity with safety.  But, your higher self thrives on the risks that you need to take in order to expand and evolve.  With an intense cosmic climate this month, your ego will likely be firing off a lot of fears.  Do what you can to quiet the ego this month.  Find some time for inner peace so that you can really up the volume on your intuition, and trust that it knows what’s best for you at this time.

CAPRICORN // Three of Pentacles    

As we make our way through an incredibly intense eclipse season complete with a full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th and a full solar eclipse on August 21st, make sure that you are consistently connecting with your intuition and the wisdom of your body, Capricorn.  With this cosmic climate, we are all being asked to lean into our fears, insecurities and discomforts a little bit more than we may be used to. Overall, this month calls for a balance between our inner and outer realms.  Committing to your inner calm this month will make sure that you are able to receive the wisdom that wishes to come through.  You are already making steady progress in the direction of your dreams, Capricorn.  Take time this month to acknowledge what is working for you, but also keep an eye out for what may not be working so well.  It’s important that you are able to see, hear and feel things clearly for yourself as we move deeper into the transformative energies of eclipse season.  One of the best ways to connect with your intuitive nature is by connecting more fully with your body.  What self-care practices make you feel the most grounded and in tune with your somatic sense of knowing?  Investigate the ways in which you can connect to, and more fully release, difficult energies from your personal vessel this month.  This will create a path for continued healing, exploration and overall expansion.

AQUARIUS // The Fool   

 

It’s eclipse season, and that means we are all being asked to move through some intensely transformative energies.  With the full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th and the full solar eclipse on August 21st, inspirations and intuitive insights are likely to be moving in and out of our consciousness on both an individual and collective level.  This is a time of universal transition that you are likely to be feeling deeply on a personal level, Aquarius.  This month you can expect to be faced with some abrupt endings, as well as, some sudden and expansive new beginnings.  The key for you this month is to stay open.  Stay out of your ego mind and connect more fully with your heart space.  This is not a time for planning or overanalyzing.  This is a time for cultivating inner peace and outer calm, so that you can align yourself with new and inspiring opportunities.  This is a time for creativity and leaps of faith.  What passions have been put on the back burner over the past few months?  What projects have you been longing to start?  Now is the time to begin!  Have faith in yourself and the journey that lies ahead if you are willing to let go and take one step forward.  There’s no need to rush, but don’t delay either, Aquarius.  It’s time to shed some layers and say goodbye to the things that are no longer serving you, so that you can fully embrace the magic of new beginnings.

PISCES // Knight of Wands, reversed

How would you rate your sense of adventure, Pisces?  Do you take advantage of new opportunities, or are you more likely to let others take the lead?  With eclipse season upon us, it’s time to shake things up.  The full moon and lunar eclipse on August 7th invites us all to investigate the fears and insecurities that prevent us from living our most authentic and creative life.  What is truly holding you back?  Are you ready to let it go?  The full solar eclipse on August 21st will shine an even brighter light on our outmoded beliefs and the things that are no longer serving us.  Expect to have some intense downloads of information regarding the changes that need to take place for you to continue to evolve and align with your higher self during this time.  Don’t jump to any conclusions based on how you are feeling this month, Pisces.  We will all be moving through a lot of intense energies, so if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed, mentally scattered, or physically drained, know that you are okay.  This transformative energy might bring some old wounds to the surface, but trust that anything that arises is showing up in order to be more fully released from your life, so that you can continue on your unique journey with renewed passion and vigor.  Commit to self-care practices that support a sense of inner calm and outer balance, and you’ll be realigned with your true path and authentic sense of self in no time.

ARIES // Five of Pentacles

Screen Shot 2017-07-07 at 5.02.39 PM.png

The antidote for uncertainty is trust.  Life will not always go as planned, but there is beauty and grace to be found in the simple act of letting go.  Be willing to let go of your expectations this month, Aries.  Stay open and embrace the art of improvisation.  Faith dissipates fear and it’s imperative that you keep building faith in yourself, Aries!  Trust that you are enough and release the need to please.  It’s important for you to put yourself first this month.  Let go of your past failures.  Acknowledge the lessons you’ve learned along the way, honor your struggles, and then do your best to move on.  Gift yourself with an extra dose of compassion, and trust that you don’t have to know exactly where you’re going in order to begin.  All that is required of you right now is to listen to your heart and say yes to what feels right.


TAURUS // The Devil, reversed

It’s easy to get off track.  Failure is inevitable but it isn’t permanent.  In fact, failure is often a precursor to victory.  Are you willing to love your failures, Taurus?  Are you willing to let your failures provide you with the fuel you need to move forward?  It’s important to cut yourself some slack this month.  Maintaining balance requires inner awareness and conscious action, but above all else, it requires compassion.  Forgive yourself, Taurus.  Let it go.  Reconnect with your inner child this month.  Get back to basics.  What makes you laugh?  What allows you to tune into a deep sense of joy?  Reconnect with lightness and ease.  Trust in the timing of your life, Taurus, and don’t let failure erode your faith.  Think of each stumble you encounter as a crucial misstep meant to prevent a fall.  No matter what you’re currently moving through, keep moving!  You’re closer than you think.


GEMINI // Death

Progress and self-doubt go hand in hand.  To the ego mind, change signifies danger and activates fear.  Be willing to lean into your fears a little more this month, Gemini.  We cannot reclaim our power until we acknowledge that it has been lost.  Go back.  When did you start shrinking for the comfort of others?  When did you stop speaking up?  Do the deep inner work you’ve been putting off.  Take action.  Break the silence.  Make the call.  Write the letter.  Turn it around.  Let it go.  Embrace the changes that you have already moved through, as well as, those that still need to unfold.  Identify your blocks and then set them on fire so that you can set yourself free.  Do what resonates, and above all else, stay true to you.  It won’t be easy, but you have everything to gain if you allow yourself to surrender to the moment and trust in the magic of this transformative time.  


CANCER // Seven of Pentacles, reversed   

Happy Birthday, Cancer!  Summer is well underway and it’s your moment to shine.  Now is the time to gather your people and celebrate all the things that make you uniquely you.  Now is the time to align with a deeper sense of receptivity, as you’re likely to be reaping the rewards of your hard work.  Take a break from all the strategizing this month and simply be.  Let new opportunities come to you.  Say yes to the invite.  Say yes to the new job.  Say yes to the date.  Say yes to putting yourself first.  Protect your energy but be open to changes that feel expansive and amplify your creativity.  Be grateful.  This simple act sends a powerful message to the universe that says you are ready and willing to receive more.  Do whatever you can to get rid of your lack mentality, Cancer.  The truth is that you really can have it all, now all you have to do is believe it.


LEO // Nine of Swords, reversed  

The natural world doesn’t always align with our inner state of being.  The sun may be shining, but that doesn’t mean we can ignore the darkness we might be battling within.  When faced with fear and anxiety, it’s important to bring awareness to all that we are feeling without placing judgment on our thoughts and feelings themselves.  Cut yourself some slack this month, Leo.  You don’t have to have it all figured out.  You don’t have to be in constant motion in order to get where you want to go.  Now is a beautiful time to take a conscious pause.  Prevention is key when it comes to burnout.  Spend some time alone.  Be in nature or simply step outside and bask in the summer sun.  Soak up all the warmth and love that the natural world is radiating toward you.  Be as present as you can be and know that your struggles will pass are quickly as the seasons change.


VIRGO // Queen of Pentacles, reversed

We all have a perfectly balanced point within us that we can tap into in order to anchor ourselves in truth when our thoughts, feelings or emotions try to take us on an unpleasant ride.  What routinely throws you off balance, Virgo?  What disconnects you from your center?  What connects you?  What practices bring you back to a state of equilibrium when inner or outer chaos threatens to take over?  This month you are being invited to investigate the things that you do on both a conscious and unconscious level that perpetuate a sense of separation between you and your true center.  Get acquainted with the ways in which you self-sabotage and start to hold yourself more accountable.  But, make sure that you hold yourself accountable with love and compassion.  We are all a part of a unique learning and healing process. Get to know your process and commit to protecting your energy by honing in on and owning your power.


LIBRA // The Magician  

It’s time to wake up your dormant dreams, Libra.  It’s time to get reacquainted with your deepest desires.  What do you desperately want but truly believe that you will never have?  Go there.  Call it in.  Sit with it.  What does it look like?  What does it feel like?  How long have you wanted it?  Why do you think you can’t have it?  Manifestation is the art of belief.  We can’t control the timing or dictate the form in which our dreams will manifest, but we can control the degree to which we are open and willing to invite in something new.  If you don’t believe, you will not be able to receive.  Let go of your outdated dreams in order to make room for the ones that you’ve deemed too grandiose.  Take action steps this month that will help solidify and amplify your systems of belief.  Do the work, but surrender your expectations and let yourself be surprised at what comes through.  


SCORPIO // Page of Swords, reversed

We must make an effort to be honest with ourselves.  How connected are you to your authentic desires, Scorpio?  How clearly are you able to communicate your needs?  Are you aligned with your personal truth, or do you find it difficult to differentiate between your thoughts and feelings and the thoughts and feelings of others?  Take some time this month to get really clear about what you need on a daily basis in order to feel connected, inspired and empowered.  You are not here to simply survive.  You are here to thrive!  Remember who you are, Scorpio.  Tune into your unused potential.  Never settling for less than you deserve means having an unwavering understanding of your worth.  Know your worth and be honest with yourself.  Letting go creates space so you can invite in something better.  Let go of anyone or anything that makes you question your worth or your ability to accomplish your dreams.


SAGITTARIUS // Eight of Swords

Don’t worry if you don’t have it all figured out, Sagittarius.  Facing the unknown can be terrifying, but the liminal space between not knowing and knowing contains a multitude of potentialities.  Uncertainty breeds creativity and helps us to foster our faith.  Have faith in the timing of your life, Sagittarius.  Make a conscious effort to equally welcome the successes, failures and everything in between.  In truth, it’s what we do with the time between the successes and peak moments in our life that dictates how connected we feel to our true center and seat of personal power.  Be willing to own all of your experiences this month.  Don’t take any of it for granted even if you’d rather wish it away.  We never know what’s right around the corner, so it’s imperative that you stay as present as possible.  Let inspiration flow to you and trust in your ability to create the outcomes that you most desire.


CAPRICORN // Two of Cups, reversed  

Romantic, platonic, familial, business-related or mere acquaintance, our relationships represent a complicated web of our own weaving.  Our interpersonal relationships are first and foremost a reflection of the relationship we have with ourselves and with our environment.  Now is the time to get back to you, Capricorn.  Now is the time to call in greater self-care and strengthen your sense of self-love.  Begin a new personal practice this month.  What is uplifting?  What feels good?  In what areas have you been ignoring your needs?  Recommit yourself to the little things that make you happy.  Work at what empowers you.  Get reacquainted with the things that make you feel whole.  Help others do the same and feel the collective burden lift a little. Now is not the time to be overly critical.  We need each other more than ever.  Work to find the love within, spread it around, and trust that more is on the way.


AQUARIUS // Temperance

The sun is shining and the natural world is bursting with a multitude of energies that are vying for our attention, but that doesn’t mean we have to say yes to every invitation that comes our way.  Be careful not to get caught up in the whirlwind of demands and expectations that will be moving through your personal sphere this month, Aquarius.  Be discerning about how you spend your time and whom you give your attention to.  Above all else, make sure that you set time aside for yourself on a regular basis.  You will optimize your social life if you first take care of your inner life.  You may need a bit more structure in order to maintain a good balance this month, Aquarius.  Be willing to make some changes, but don’t overthink it.  Commit to inner calm and you’ll be surprised by what little sacrifice self-care requires in the long run.


PISCES // Nine of Wands

It’s time to find your courage, Pisces.  Take heart and forge ahead because you’re closer than you think.  Surrender is an act of profound bravery.  Be willing to not know exactly how you’ll make it through, but still trust with all of your might that you will.  It’s a common misconception that we have to be actively working toward something at all times in order to achieve our goals.  Dream, visualize, set intentions, have your goals in mind, but don’t push.  Don’t force anything to happen, Pisces. When we force things to happen, we shortchange ourselves.  The universe has much greater things in store for you than you can imagine right now.  Don’t block the flow with your ego’s limited ideas of love, success and happiness.  Don’t get stuck in an idea about who you are or how your life is supposed to be.  Let go, have patience, and the rest will come sooner than you think.

June Tarotscopes


ARIES // Eight of Wands

ARIESJune.png

June is gearing up to be a month of breakthroughs for you, Aries.  Believe in your work.  Believe in your art.  Believe in your relationships, but most of all believe in yourself!  Everything you need to succeed in all areas of your life is already within you.  Do you believe it?  Now is the time to dig deep.  Commit to finding the confidence and passion that you may be lacking and start building the life of your wildest dreams.  Take a look around you.  Where do you already feel a sense of abundance?  In what ways do you already feel successful?  Honor how far you’ve already come and take time to center yourself before moving forward.  Where do you see room for progress and expansion?  It’s time to take action!  The Summer Solstice on June 21st will bring about a boon of energy that will lead to increased awakening and expansion on both an individual and collective level.  Stay motivated this month.  Make a conscious effort to keep moving forward, tune into the transformative energy of this time, and you are sure to be experiencing abundance on a whole new level by the end of the month. 

TAURUS // Three of Swords

We are nearing the halfway point of 2017, and it’s time to get quiet and check in with ourselves.  Whether you’ve experienced all-time lows or new highs, we’ve all been moving through a great deal of individual and collective confusion and pain that must be addressed before we move forward.  Although this task may seem daunting at first, it is a crucial step in the process of healing and expansion.  Shining a light on our pain doesn’t make it disappear.  In fact, sometimes it incites a momentary downward spiral within us, but if you can hold on to who you are and trust that you will be pulled back to the surface, you will be rewarded with renewed clarity and hope when you get to the other side.  Trust that your trials and tribulations are strengthening you this month, Taurus.  Healing is not linear and it can be an extremely frustrating process, but you don’t need to fear it.  Do what you can to let go a little bit more this month, Taurus.  Tune into the Summer Solstice’s energy of enlightenment on June 21st, take time to celebrate your personal healing journey, and trust that your life is in place.

GEMINI // Death, reversed

Happy Birthday, Gemini!  It’s your season, and the month of June brings with it a time of increased abundance, light and celebration.  Now is the time to show up for yourself and your people.  Be loud.  Be proud.  Live in your joy and dance your way to the other side of an intense cycle of transformation that will soon be coming to a close.  With Mercury as your ruling planet, you’re known to be the great communicator of the zodiac and this month you’re being asked to speak up and use your unique voice on a whole new level.  In what ways do you feel silenced?  In what ways do you tend to silence yourself?  What are you afraid to say?  What are you willing to shout from the rooftops without reservation?  The answers to these questions will help guide you in the direction of where your voice can be best used at this time.  Words are powerful and utterances can incite transformation and healing on both an individual and collective level.  Shed the old skin that’s keeping you small and encourages you to stay quiet, Gemini.  This world needs you and your radiant light, so bust out, break through, and shine forth!

CANCER // Nine of Swords  

Don’t believe everything you think, Cancer.  We all experience a multitude of fears and negative thought patterns on a daily basis, but the key is not to attach to them.  Now is an important time to remember that you are not your thoughts and feelings are not facts.  Get curious about the worries, thoughts and fears that consistently come up for you this month.  What fears are you ready to release?  What fears are you deeply identified with?  What would happen if you let them go?  Shine a light on the dark recesses of your mind and take some time to sit with what you find.  Healing requires us to address all parts of the self.  Healing is the act of remembering and integrating all of life’s experiences.  Be willing to suspend notions of good and bad.  Investigate all of your experiences with an open heart and mind.  Be willing to transform the experiences that no longer serve you.  Transformation can be a long and arduous process, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.  So, keep going, Cancer, and trust that soon after you see the light, you too will become it.

LEO // Two of Wands, reversed

It’s okay to take a break, Leo.  Sometimes we need to retreat in order to assess our progress and gain the momentum we need in order to keep moving forward.  Trust that you are on the right track this month and don’t be afraid to take some time out for yourself.  Take time out to evaluate.  Take time out to rest and dream. Are you letting yourself evolve, or are you holding onto any outmoded ideas about who you are, what you want and how you should be attaining your goals?  You don’t have to wait until you burn out or reach a dead end before you take the time to stop and look at how far you’ve come and solidify where it is you want to go.  Maybe everything is going exactly as planned and you simply need to take a moment to celebrate your successes to keep yourself motivated.  Or, maybe you need to do some serious rerouting.  Take a conscious pause in order to confirm that your pursuits are aligned with your true values and higher self.  Rushing is a surefire way to kill off authenticity, so take it slow and make sure that you are authentic in all that you do this month.

VIRGO // Seven of Wands, reversed

The season of love, light and celebration may just be getting underway, but you’re likely to be facing some feelings of overwhelm and burnout this month, Virgo.  Trust that this is a passing time.  Keep looking ahead with a sense of optimism and keep your dreams close to your heart.  They are worthy of your time and attention and you owe it to yourself to reconnect with a sense of possibility and wonder.  Everything you have ever wanted is still within your reach even if it doesn’t feel like it right now.  The Summer Solstice on June 21st invites you to tune into your personal frequency and investigate ways to raise your unique vibration through acts of deeper self-care, compassion and unconditional love.  Take time to tune into and think about the quality of your energy.  What does it feel like?  What does it look like?  Do you readily take on or absorb other peoples’ energy?  If so, how does this affect the quality of your energy?  Get clear on the boundaries that you currently have in place to protect your energy and create new ones if need be.  Do whatever you need to do this month in order to feel healthy, happy, wild and free.

LIBRA // Three of Wands

The month of June brings you many of the same energies as last month, Libra, but trust that progress is still being made and that you will be afforded some important insights and new motivations by the time the month is through.  June ushers in the season of increased light, abundance and celebration.  Celebrate all of your successes, Libra, and know that you are currently working through a cycle of healing and expansion that will bring about many more.  It’s imperative that you stay focused on the big picture this month.  Don’t get bogged down in details that don’t really matter.  Be discerning in your endeavors, but be careful that you don’t create problems by overly scrutinizing yourself and others.  Now is the time to find more joy and levity in all that you do, Libra.  Use the Summer Solstice on June 21st to call in more clarity and light into your life.  Seek the light.  Ask to be enlightened.  Set intentions that will allow you to find a better balance between work and play.  Commit to deeper self-care.  Commit to your inner work.  Commit to giving your future self the life they are dreaming of.  It’s closer than you know.

SCORPIO // Justice, reversed

How honest are you with yourself, Scorpio?  Visualize the most authentic version of yourself.  Does your vision align with your current reality?  If not, why?  We contain multitudes.  You do not have to be any one thing, but you do owe it to yourself to be as authentic and free as you can possibly be in all of your expressions.  The world will not readily support you in this work, but its importance cannot be denied.  This month you’re being asked to spend time contemplating the ways in which you can exercise your authenticity and celebrate yourself.  Go within.  Do your inner work and you will develop a greater sense of confidence and ease.  Now is the time to be visible.  Show up for yourself in a deeper way and let yourself be truly seen by others.  Give people the gift of your presence and you will be rewarded with increased connection.  Keep letting go of the past.  Keep opening yourself to deeper healing and expansion.  Tune into the transformative energy of the Summer Solstice on June 21st.  This is a beautiful time to seek clarity and ask for guidance.  You don’t have to have all of the answers, but you must be willing to receive.

SAGITTARIUS // Ten of Wands

As the days continue to get longer and we approach the beginning of a new season with the Summer Solstice on June 21st, you are working toward completing a cycle of deep personal transformation, Sagittarius.  If you’ve been faced with fears and persistent struggles in the past few months, know that you will soon be moving into a time of greater peace and ease.  With an increase of light in the environment will come an increase of clarity in your personal life if you’re willing to let go and lean into new beginnings.  After the Summer Solstice you can expect to feel lighter in body, mind and spirit.  During times of intense transition it’s important to remember that all of your experiences are compostable.  Your successes and failures alike will serve a purpose as you move forward if you’re open to the receiving the wisdom that can equally come from pleasure and pain.  Be willing to delve into the deeper meaning of life’s challenges this month, Sagittarius, and celebrate your successes with renewed fervor.  Align yourself with a deep sense of joy and celebrate your personal rebirth as you luxuriate in the wonder of the season and nature’s profound beauty and bounty.

CAPRICORN // Knight of Swords

June will provide you with an opportunity to forge ahead with increased energy and creativity, Capricorn, but it’s also important to keep in mind that you may not know exactly where you are headed, and that is okay.  Be open and willing to change course if need be.  This month invites you to deepen your presence.  What keeps you from being fully in the moment?  What grounds you?  What practices help you come back to center when you start to spiral?  The more you get to know your inner life, the more you will be able to master your outer life.  You may not be able to control your circumstances, but you can always control your reactions.  When we commit to an inner sense of calm, we are better able to harness our energy and use it for the things that matter most.  Gather all of your energy this month, Capricorn.  Get rid of distractions.  Build your inner strength.  Commit to a deeper sense of purpose in all that you do.  The Summer Solstice on June 21st will provide you with an added boost of energy and clarity that will help you blaze a trail in the direction of your dreams.  What are you waiting for?  Go for it!

AQUARIUS // Ten of Cups, reversed

It’s time to celebrate, Aquarius!  As the summer season approaches you’re likely to be experiencing a surge of creativity and a deeper sense of abundance in all areas of your life.  The Summer Solstice on June 21st will gift you with an increase of energy to reignite some of the hopes and dreams that may have fallen by the wayside in the past few months.  What projects have you put on the back burner that are still vying for your attention?  Look for the signs.  What direction should you be going in?  How can you harness your innate powers?   Who can support you in your work and creativity?  Be open to receiving guidance and trust your gut!  Now is the time to be out in the world.  Now is the time for socializing and reconnecting with those who support and inspire you.  Remember that abundance comes in many different forms.  If you’re having a hard time shaking off a sense of lack in one area of your life, look for ways in which you can more fully embrace the areas where you feel fully taken care of.  Align yourself with a deeper sense of gratitude, embrace the ease of the season, and welcome in new beginnings with the wonder and enthusiasm they deserve.

PISCES // The Hermit

The Summer Solstice on June 21st will bring about an increase in both our individual and collective energies.  It’s a time for celebration and aligning oneself with a deeper sense of joy and abundance.  We are all invited to step into the light and celebrate ourselves.  Celebrate your community.  Celebrate your creativity.  It’s time to let loose and feel free to express yourself without holding back.  Although the month of June is shaping up to be a joyous time of increased connection, you must remember to keep our personal boundaries firm, Pisces.  If you feel drained, take time to be alone and reset before moving forward.  Make sure that you are clear on where your energy and emotions end and where another person’s begin.  This is the inner work that you must do consistently.  Be vigilant so that you can welcome in all that this bountiful season has to offer without getting overwhelmed or suffering from burnout.  Get better acquainted with the word, “No.”  Don’t worry about missing out if you need to retreat from social gatherings.  Honor your personal rhythms and unique needs and you will come to realize that maintaining your inner peace is cause for the greatest celebration of all.

ARIES // Page of Wands

There’s an abundance of creative inspiration on the horizon for you this month, Aries.  Let your intuition be your guide when it comes to new projects and potential collaborations.  Not everyone and everything that comes in this month will be worth your time and energy.  Although you may find yourself caught up in a whirlwind of new ideas and opportunities, it’s important that you keep a discerning attitude in the midst of all the excitement.  We’ve finally moved on from the dormancy of a long winter and our collective energy is growing.  We are quickly gaining the momentum needed to help us all burst forth into a new cycle with greater clarity and motivation.  Your individual energy this month is perfectly aligned with this increase in collective force, Aries, but easy does it.  Make sure you don’t get caught up in the multitude of energies and inspirations that will be vying for your attention.  Take your time.  Stay grounded.  It’s Taurus season, so you are advised to attune yourself to the stable, practical and persistent qualities of the Bull.  Don’t worry about quantity.  Cut out anything that is superfluous this month and work diligently toward dreams that are only of the highest quality.

 

TAURUS // The High Priestess, reversed

Happy Birthday, Taurus!  It’s your season, and after a gruelingly long winter, we are all elated to be celebrating with you.  There is inspiration buzzing all around, and you may feel an extra pull to be out in the world this month, but make sure that you balance any socializing with quiet time.  Specifically, you are being asked to reconnect with your ruling element of earth this month.  Reconnect in order to get grounded.  Reconnect for support.  Get outside and go within.  Sprawl out on the grass and receive the warmth of the sun.  Go for a hike or a walk on the beach.  If you live in an urban environment, head to a park or even a small patch of grass will do.  Let your skin make contact with the earth in whatever way you can.  Write your intentions on small pieces of paper and bury them in the ground like seeds.  Hold space for your dreams while sitting in silence somewhere outside or simply open up your window and let Mother Nature’s energy come to you.  You have a great deal of guidance and wisdom that wants to manifest in your life this month, Taurus, so be still and get ready to receive.

 

GEMINI // Five of Wands, reversed

Stop second-guessing yourself, Gemini.  You have so much to offer, and it’s time for you to start believing in yourself and your abilities on a whole new level.  It’s time to get out of your own way and raise your personal vibration.  A little competition can be an incredibly activating force, but make sure that you’re not competing with yourself.  Are you holding onto an outdated idea about who you think you should be?  Are you holding onto a dream that is no longer serving you?  If it doesn’t resonate in the here and now, let it go!  If it doesn’t make you feel alive, inspired, and motivated to take a leap of faith, then move on.  Collectively, we are still working to shake off winter’s weight and lackluster vibe in order to fully move into the transformative energy and creative bounty that the spring season has to offer.  You may have had a few false starts in the past couple of months, but don’t let that discourage you.  Keep moving forward this month.  Believe in yourself and trust that everything in aligning for you in the most perfect way possible.  You don’t have to have it all figured out, but you do have to keep fighting for your happiness, creativity and personal fulfillment.

 

CANCER // Eight of Wands, reversed

The natural world may be bursting with blossoms and longer days may have you feeling like you need to charge ahead with renewed force, but it’s important for you to remember that slow and steady wins the race, Cancer.  Many of us feel as though we’ve been in a prolonged hibernation.  We are eager to get up and running.  We want motivation.  We want results, and we want them now.  Don’t fall prey to such haste, Cancer.  Hurrying is a form of violence.  Hurrying undermines our progress and our potential.  Trust in your timing this month.  Exercise your faith by taking a conscious pause instead of pushing forward.  Taurus season invites us all to get more grounded and reconnect with a deeper sense of purpose and stability within ourselves.  Never forget that you already have everything you need in order to thrive, Cancer.  No matter what obstacles you are currently facing, you can and will overcome them if you do your personal work and refuse to succumb to fear and indifference.  Everyone else may be in a hurry, but stay true to you and your own perfect timing.  Listen to your body.  Rest when you need to rest.  Do what feels right.  Do what feels good and know that you deserve it.

 

LEO // Three of Swords, reversed

How’s your heart, Leo?  Take a moment and sink deeply into your heart space.  What feelings or emotions are bubbling just beneath the surface?  Do you feel contractive or expansive?  What are you afraid of?  What is your heart longing to express?  Be willing to be your own witness this month, Leo.  Be willing to show up for yourself with deeper awareness and tenderness.  Create space for your heart to speak.  Set aside time to listen.  Now is not the time to wear your emotions on your sleeve.  Now is the time to go within and seek the guidance of your own inner crone.  In truth, you already have all of the answers.  In truth, you are already completely healed and whole, but we are living in chaotic times.  There is constant stimulus vying for our attention, and it’s easy to forget our truth.  Be wiling to align yourself with a force that is much bigger than you this month, Leo.  It doesn’t matter what form this force takes for you.  It doesn’t matter if it’s an ethereal sense of oneness or a hard and fast feeling you get while in nature.  Tune into whatever feels the most expansive and supportive, give up control, and let the feelings that arise guide you home.

 

VIRGO // Two of Wands   

It’s time to check in with your life force, Virgo.  Do you feel vital or do you feel drained?  Take some time to honestly assess where you’re at without judgment.  Wherever you are right now is exactly where you need to be.  If you’re feeling fulfilled, aligned and ready to charge ahead with a new work project or creative endeavor, then do so.  If you’re feeling heavy, defeated and full of dread, stay put until you’ve recharged or rerouted, or both.  Sometimes we must endure a prolonged period of pain or stagnation in order to find out what we are truly made of.  The true power of our pain lies in showing us the fierceness of our fight.  No matter what you are facing right now, Virgo, don’t give up!  There are some truly wonderful and beautifully aligned opportunities heading your way.  Ask yourself if you need to take some time off and let them come to you, or if you feel ready to get going and meet them halfway.  Empowerment can come from action as equally as it can come from standing your ground and taking the time you need.  Stay true to you this month, Virgo, and you’ll be onto the next best thing in no time at all.

 

LIBRA // Three of Wands, reversed

 

Moving forward isn’t always easy.  Moving forward requires an immense amount of faith and trust.  It’s easy to feel bogged down by change.  It’s easy to fear for our future.  Although staying small may seem like less work, the truth is that we are hardwired to evolve.  Stifling our personal evolution by giving into fear and stagnation is significantly more work than leaning in, trusting the process and going with the flow.  Death only occurs when change ceases, but we block our evolution and make it extremely difficult for change to happen when we refuse to let go of that which no longer serves us.  The ego urges us to hold on because it equates familiarity with safety, but the soul understands the beauty and potential of the unknown.  The ego feeds on attachment.  The soul thrives on leaps of faith into the unknown.  The ego fears chaos, but the soul knows that chaos is a precursor to creation.  Chaos means uncertainty and uncertainty means possibility.  Face the uncertainties in your life with renewed faith this month, Libra.  Quiet the ego.  Be willing to approach all that you do from a soul-centered perspective.  Trust in the possibilities.  Upgrade your personal belief system and you will upgrade your entire life.

 

SCORPIO // Knight of Swords, reversed     

Spring’s energy is typically refreshing and motivating, but after such a long and harsh winter, you may be feeling a bit frantic and unstable, Scorpio.  Take the time you need this month to fully transition into this new energy before moving forward.  It may take awhile for you to feel balanced and confident enough to fully emerge, but it’s imperative that you go slow in order to stay aligned with your most authentic wants and needs before pursuing any new projects or relationships this month.  With all of the chaos that we have collectively been moving through, you may be having a difficult time discerning what your true desires are.  You may feel a sudden push to go in a certain direction only to find out soon after that your motivations were not authentically yours.  Stay centered this month by getting back to basics, Scorpio.  Be gentle with yourself and get creative.  Keep it light as you explore the depths of your inner life with quiet time, walks in nature, drawing, singing, dancing, or whatever feels good to you.  Ignore anyone who places demands on your time and attention.  Put yourself first.  Aim to please your inner child and you’ll soon feel free to fly into the next cycle of your life with grace and ease.

 

SAGITTARIUS // Temperance, reversed   

You don’t have to do it all alone, Sagittarius.  In fact, it is highly recommended that you seek the comfort and support of others this month.  As one of the most ambitious signs of the zodiac, you know how to harness your inner wisdom and independent spirit in order to achieve your goals, but it’s important that you remember the guidance and strength that can also be found in community.  Make sure you don’t overlook the ones who care for you the most this month, Sagittarius.  Give yourself a break and be willing to receive.  You don’t always have to be the one who is on the move, exploring, growing and giving.  Sometimes we receive the clarity or the missing piece we’ve been ardently searching for when we simply relax, stop seeking, and open ourselves up to receiving what we need from others.  The more we are able to receive, the more we are able to give back.  Giving and receiving is akin to inhaling and exhaling.  One cannot exist without the other.  It is a continuous cycle that requires a commitment to balance.  Commit to balance and calm this month.  Reach out to your people.  Get the support you need and you’ll be ready to move ahead with full force by the end of the month.

 

CAPRICORN // Nine of Cups, reversed    

 

The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and May is shaping up to be an extremely abundant month for you, Capricorn.  With an increase in abundance, whether it be time, energy or money, you’re likely to be feeling more generous.  Don’t be afraid to exercise your spirit of generosity throughout the month, but make sure that you don’t fall into a cycle of giving more than you receive.  Be open to receiving other people’s gifts and offerings to you.  Increasing our receptivity sends a powerful signal to the universe that says we are ready, willing, and able to take on more.  When we are unwilling or unable to receive, we send a signal to the universe that says we have reached capacity and can’t take on anything new.  When we give more than we receive we can feel drained and anxious.  Likewise, when we receive more than we give, we can feel guilty or unworthy.  Maintaining a healthy balance between giving and receiving keeps us within an effortless flow of abundance.  Strive for balance in all areas of your life this month, Capricorn.  This will make it easier for you to navigate any experiences that may block the strong current of abundance that is heading your way.

 

AQUARIUS // Queen of Cups

What are you most afraid of, Aquarius?  In what ways are you unwilling to fully show up for yourself?  In what ways do you avoid being truly seen?  As the natural world celebrates rebirth with outward signs of new growth and an array of colors, smells and sounds, you are being asked to go within.  What did the long winter months allow you to keep buried beneath the surface?  What walls need to come down and what fears need to be faced in order for you to move into the summer months with more gusto?  The answer to these questions must come from the heart.  You cannot think your way into a deeper experience of joy and creativity.  You have to feel your way through these questions in order to find the answers that resonate most deeply within you.  No one else can do this work for you.  It won’t be easy.  It might be emotional.  It might be scary.  It might even seem unnecessary, but your heart has things that it wants to tell you, Aquarius.  Be gentle.  You don’t need to get too far ahead of yourself.  Take your time.  Stay soft.  Be open and simply listen, and the rest will come to you.

 

PISCES // The Hierophant   

We live in a world where we are constantly inundated with choices.  Living in contemporary society means dealing with overwhelm caused by too many options on a daily basis.  What structures do you have in place to help you make choices, Pisces?  Who do you turn to when you need help making a decision?  Are the choices that you make for yourself more influenced by the past, the present or the future?  Do you focus more on your hopes or your regrets?  You’re being asked to investigate your personal processes this month in order to get crystal clear about anything and everything that influences you and your decision-making.  When we strip away the stimulus and outside opinions, we give ourselves a chance to get to the heart of the matter.  When we get centered, we give our authentic self a better opportunity to show up and speak up on our behalf.  Don’t worry about what everyone else is saying or doing this month, Pisces.  Don’t be afraid to balk at tradition.  If it doesn’t resonate with you, don’t do it.  Stay true to you.  Keep moving forward.  Have the courage to do it your way and any help that you may need will soon follow.

April Tarotscopes

APRIL TAROTSCOPES by Jillann Morlan
Spirit Speak Tarot Deck by Mary Elizabeth Evans

ARIES // Six of Pentacles

It's your season, Aries!  It's time to align with your creative powers.  It's time to quiet the mind, get out of your own way, and exercise your unique magic.  Although you had the Six of Pentacles as your card last month, it shows up again this month with a completely different energy and new medicine to offer you.  March's cosmic climate was all about endings, and for you, Aries, it was about getting rid of your lack mentality, understanding the intrinsic link between giving and receiving, and expanding your definition of abundance.  With the astrological New Year well under way, you are now being asked to believe.  Believe in your work.  Believe in your art.  Believe in your relationships. Believe in your deepest desires.  Believe in your wildest, craziest, out-of-this-world dreams!  Your thoughts are powerful and what you believe affects your reality.  The mind can be our greatest asset or our ultimate downfall when it comes to the art of manifestation.  What limiting beliefs do you need to banish in order to move forward with full force this month?  Pay attention to your thoughts and be willing to insert positive affirmations where they are needed.  Align your thoughts with a positive belief system, believe in the magic your words, and exercise your power to speak things into existence.
 

TAURUS // Seven of Pentacles, reversed

Despite the fact that we live in a culture that is all too quick to forfeit responsibility in favor of playing the blame game, we must remember that we alone hold the key to our successes and failures alike.  Where do you consistently come up short, Taurus?  How do you self-sabotage?  Are you willing to take full responsibility for your life?  Do you want to manifest your dreams, or would you rather someone else do it for you?  Blame can lead to disempowerment on both a conscious and unconscious level.  When we are disempowered we are disconnected from our dreams and the courage to keep moving forward.  Take ownership of your life and your choices this month, Taurus, so that you can more fully experience the breadth and wonder of your power, joy and magic.  If you are dissatisfied with your work, relationships, creativity, or health, don't waste your time and energy beating yourself up or blaming others, rather, make a choice, however big or small, that will help guide you in a new direction.  Ask yourself what you can do in order to change your situation or your current perspective, and then do it.  The energy of the month will help propel you forward if you’re willing to release the past and set out on a more enlightened path. 
 

GEMINI // Page of Pentacles

Beautiful beginnings and fresh perspectives are likely to lead to varied forms of abundance for you this month, Gemini.  So, if you've been dragging your feet lately or feeling reluctant to emerge and embrace the change of season, it's time to come out of your shell, shake off any residual winter sludge and claim what's rightfully yours.  But, there’s no need to rush.  Rushing increases anxiety and can lead to inauthentic action.  Make sure that you show up for yourself and preserve your authenticity in all that you do this month.  This is your strength.  Authenticity is directly linked to joy.  When we act in ways that are aligned with our authentic self, we have greater access to our joy and send a powerful message to the universe that we are ready and willing to receive.  Most of us are conditioned to act in ways that go against authentic wants and needs.  We are taught from an early age how to shrink and adjust ourselves for the comfort of others.  If someone doesn't understand us we often feel obliged to change.  This back and forth can lead to pain and suffering.  Authenticity heals.  It feeds our cells.  It opens us up and makes us shine brighter.  Now is the time to hone in on what you honestly crave and call it in using your loudest, proudest and most authentic voice possible.
 

CANCER // Queen of Cups, reversed

With Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and Pluto all in retrograde at various times throughout the month, we’re all likely to be feeling some intense highs and lows.  Your sensitivity is one of your greatest strengths, Cancer, but you’re advised to be on high alert for emotional overload this month.  Don’t be afraid to lean into the multitude of feelings and emotions that may creep up on you throughout the month, but also make sure that you have a solid grounding practice that you can turn to if your emotions threaten to get the best of you.  What activities do you enjoy that make you feel rooted in your body?  How can you best quiet your mind?  This is a perfect time to explore and find out what your grounding medicine is.  This month, it’s especially important for you remember that thoughts are not facts, Cancer.  We may think that we are unworthy or unlovable, but thinking something does not make it so.  A negative thought is not a prophecy, but it can provide valuable information that will help us go deeper within ourselves and shine a light on the parts that still need healing.  Ride out the turbulent waves of emotion this month, listen to your thoughts without attaching to them, and trust in the changes that are heading your way.
 

LEO // Ace of Wands

It’s a new astrological year, a new month, and you’ve got some fiery new energy coming your way, Leo!  Capitalize on the inspirations that come to you and work to keep the creative juices flowing, but don’t rush into things or make any radical decisions.  Although things are looking pretty good for you personally this month, Leo, the collective energy will surely be a bit chaotic due to the fact that Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, and Pluto will all be in retrograde at various times throughout the month.  If you find yourself feeling things pretty intensely or quickly jumping from high to low, don’t worry!  You are not crazy, but you may be moving through a lot of different energies.  The best thing you can do for yourself is take it all in stride and try to turn the multitude of sparks that are all around you into flames that will help fuel your passions.  You may be feeling a bit all over the place throughout the month, but the truth is that you have the power to turn it around anytime you wish.  Harness the power of alchemy.  Transform fear into motivation.  Transform chaos into creativity.  Gain control of your mind and emotions, and you will not only thrive but also be a guiding light for others.
 

VIRGO // Temperance

Slow and steady is your medicine for the month of April, Virgo.  Balance will be hard-won with five planets (Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Pluto) in retrograde at different times throughout the month, but this is where your effort will be best served.  Do whatever you can to achieve and maintain balance in all that you do this month.  Be patient with yourself and be willing to extend compassion and support to others.  With the chaotic cosmic climate there is sure to be a lot of confusion and drama cycling through our lives on both an individual and collective level.  People are likely to get caught up in their personal dramas and you may find yourself feeling left out in the cold.  Don’t lose heart or give up hope when it comes to your relationships, Virgo.  The balance and calm that you are being asked to find within yourself this month is in service of setting up a solid foundation so that you will be able to call in and receive deeper love and support from others in the coming months.  We are only ever able to receive the love that we are first willing to give ourselves.  Shower yourself with love, understanding and devotion.  Find a better balance and get to know your desires on a deeper level because some extra special spring sweetness is soon to be heading your way.
 

LIBRA // Four of Wands, reversed

Transitions signify movement and growth, but they can also stir up uncertainty and incite a great deal of fear within us.  Although we have entered a new astrological year and new beginnings are starting to unfold for all of us alongside the emergence of spring, many of us still don’t feel ready to move forward into the next phase of our lives.  April’s cosmic climate will increase this contractive energy on both an individual and collective level as Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and Pluto will all be in retrograde at different times throughout the month.  It may be difficult to discern what you truly want and where you fit in the grand scheme of things, but you must give yourself a break, Libra.  Take it easy.  Take your time when making decisions.  Seek guidance.  Ask for help.  Don’t try to think your way out of the chaos, and don’t believe that all of your feelings are facts. If you find yourself feeling particularly off-kilter this month, Libra, take it as an invitation to not only re-center, but also to more fully align with your heart and find your true center.  We must know ourselves in order to stay true to ourselves and staying true to ourselves is the medicine we need most during trying times like these.  Reconnect with your roots, meet your contractions with compassion and get ready to expand.
 

SCORPIO // Nine of Cups     

What have you been hoping for, Scorpio?  Have you been taking action to support your dreams?  If so, keep going!  If you feel stuck now is the perfect time to start making some moves.  The cosmic climate this month is guiding us all to take things slow, but there’s a difference between taking your time and going at your own pace and stalling or blocking your own progress out of fear.  You are your only obstacle this month, Scorpio, and if you can get out of your own way, you will certainly reap the rewards.  What outdated beliefs about your worth and abilities do you need to burn to the ground once and for all?  It’s a new astrological year, a new month, and a new season, so use the energy that is available to you right now and do everything you can to foster your own new beginning.  Your personal energy this month is geared toward wish fulfillment, so dream big and plant seeds of intention that are in direct alignment with all of the desires that you have for your future.  Once you’ve done your personal work, start looking for signs that the universe is supporting you.  The more you perceive and acknowledge the help that you get, the more gratitude you will feel, and gratitude is the key to your growth.  
 

SAGITTARIUS // The Hierophant   

Be willing to grow and evolve your belief system this month, Sagittarius.  What do you put your faith and trust in?  What do you value?  Are your beliefs and values completely your own or are they indicative of your upbringing, family, friends or work environment?  In what ways can you challenge yourself to think beyond your current perspective?  With Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and Pluto all in retrograde at various times throughout the month, we will all be forced to examine our core beliefs, relationships, and immediate environment on a much deeper level.  Don’t be surprised if you find yourself feeling scattered, confused or even a bit worried this month.  Your thinking mind will have a lot to say, so make sure that you keep sinking into your heart space when the ego’s volume gets turned up too high.  It may be a new month, but we are still moving through some intense cycles on both an individual and collective level.  Don’t expect to feel totally centered this month, but trust that this is a passing time.  If you are willing to challenge everything, and do some deep personal work to find out where your authentic center is, you will be in a newly empowered position and ready to move forward on your own terms by the end of month.
 

CAPRICORN // Two of Swords   

With Venus in retrograde until April 15th, and four other planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and Pluto) in retrograde at various times throughout the month, we certainly aren’t going to be afforded much clarity by the cosmos this Aries season.  Aries is ruled by fire.  Aries is passionate, independent, and ambitious, but the energy surrounding you this month will make it extremely difficult to align with this kind of optimism and drive, Capricorn.  Don’t be surprised if you feel like you’re taking a shot in the dark or fighting an uphill battle throughout the month.  The best medicine to help you get through this difficult time is compassion and self-acceptance.  You may not be completely clear on what you want or what you’re doing right now, but this isn’t a problem.  In fact, this time is an incredible gift that is being given to you so you can get in greater alignment with your authenticity and your intuition before moving forward.  This forced pause may feel like a punishment, but it is actually an incredible invitation for you to be more conscious in all that you do.  Now is the perfect time to identify your personal blocks and make an effort to work through them.  No one can do this work but you, so rise to the challenge and be your own hero.
 

AQUARIUS // The Lovers

Aries season is usually ripe with new beginnings and energetic gusto, but we’re still moving through some intense cycles individually and collectively, so this month we are all being asked to take our time and ease into the new astrological year and change of season rather than charging ahead.  But, that doesn’t mean you can’t be enthusiastic about the changes that are occurring in your life.  In fact, you should be!  Despite some cosmic chaos that we won’t be able to avoid, things are looking pretty sweet for you this month, Aquarius.  You’re advised to celebrate the energy of transformation throughout the month and embrace all of the new people, places and experiences that are sure to enter your life.  Some things may have to fall by the wayside, but everything that goes will be in service of raising your personal vibration so you can call in more of what you truly want and need.  In particular, you are being asked to embrace the changes that might be occurring within your relationships.  Who can you always turn to?  Who makes you feel expansive?  Who makes you feel contractive?  Who do you need to set firmer boundaries with?  You may need to weed some people out of your life, but trust that this will create space for members of your true tribe to enter, and once they do, the party can really begin.
 

PISCES // King of Wands, reversed  

You may be feeling inspired by all of the fiery spring energy that’s around, Pisces, but don’t rush into any new projects this month or you’ll burn out before you’re able to truly get started.  Due to the fact that Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury and Pluto will all be in retrograde at different times throughout the month, April is likely to be filled with false starts for those of us who don’t understand the importance of taking a conscious pause and the virtue of patience.  If you’re feeling particularly inspired, channel this energy to set some long-term intentions and then burn off your restlessness by having fun.  Express your creativity by settling deeper into your body.  Be outside as much as possible so you can connect with nature and tune into the most expansive source of creativity that there is.  Let your ideas marinate a little longer this month, Pisces.  Be open to the new, but don’t rush into action quite yet or you’ll just have to do some unnecessary backtracking later on.  You might have a hard time discerning which of your ideas are best to pursue, so hold off on any big plans and instead use this time to explore every possible option with a renewed sense of play and childlike wonder.  Don’t wish this time away because you’ll be back to work before you know it!


March Tarotscopes

MARCH TAROTSCOPES by Jillann Morlan  

Spirit Speak Tarot Deck by Mary Elizabeth Evans 


ARIES // Six of Pentacles

You can afford to be a bit more generous this month, Aries.  Be willing to give more of yourself.  Be willing to share.  Be open.  Don’t hesitate to offer others the time and energy that you have to spare.  Challenge your lack mentality this month.  Suspend your skepticism and subscribe to the belief that the more you give the more you will receive.  Generosity is a sign that you have a deeper and more holistic understanding of abundance.  The universe sees generosity as a sign that you are willing and able to let go and receive something new that will aid in your personal evolution.  We cannot receive if we do not have space in our lives in order to do so.  We are all facing some intense endings as the astrological year comes to a close this month in the sign of Pisces.  Pisces is artistic, intuitive and wise.  Pisces understands the importance of letting go.  Pisces knows there is profound strength to be found in vulnerability.  Lean into the intense waves of change this month, Aries.  Foster a spirit of generosity and you will glide into the astrological new year with increased awareness and abundance.

 

TAURUS // Ace of Cups

As we finish out the astrological year this month in the watery and intuitive sign of Pisces, we are all being asked to take inventory of our feelings and emotions.  The focus for many of us this month will be on emotional release and recalibration, but you, Taurus, are being guided to investigate the depths of your emotional life in order to access your untapped power.  In a world where strength is defined by one’s ability to uphold and withstand, you are being asked to find your strength in giving in and going with the flow.  What parts of yourself have you been holding back?  What parts are begging to come out and play?  How might you benefit from expressing your authentic emotions more readily?  How might others benefit?  Show up for all parts of yourself this month, Taurus, and create safe space for your vulnerability to express itself.  Imagine a world where we all feel safe to authentically express ourselves at all times.  Imagine a world where everyone is in touch with and honors their inner child.  Celebrate your inner child this month.  Find the joy and strength in personal expression without censorship. 

GEMINI // Five of Swords

Do you feel like you're receiving mixed signals, Gemini?  Do you feel overloaded, overwhelmed or over stimulated? Now is the time to tune into your higher self and figure out how to gently navigate your way out of the chaos to a place of greater calm and inner peace. Trust that there is a way out. Ask to be shown the way. Take time to consider what is true and what is false. Once you feel more grounded in your personal truth, don't hesitate to act. Now is the time to make clear, concise and authentic choices for yourself.  Don't worry about what other people think. Do what feels right for you. Cut out the naysayers. Quiet the ego. What is truly in your highest and best right now? Reassert yourself. Renew your agency. Reclaim your power. We finish out the astrological year this month in the sign of Pisces. Align yourself with this creative, intuitive and compassionate energy in order to find out what is the best way forward for you at this time. It's time to shed another layer of fear so you can invite in the new with a greater sense of calm and ease. 

CANCER // Judgement

You don’t have to do everything by yourself, Cancer.  You may not always feel like you are supported, but make sure you don’t isolate yourself.  In fact, your energy will be elevated this month if you link up with others to accomplish your goals.  What creative projects have you been imagining but failed to kick start on your own?  Who have you been meaning to get in touch with?  Who would you like to reach out to?  Make a conscious effort to connect with your people this month.  Make a conscious effort to expand your community.  Open yourself up to the possibility of new relationships, new collaborations and new guides.  If you are unsure about whom to get in contact with, or you find it difficult to ask for help, don’t worry.  Sometimes the most powerful act we can perform is the act of surrender. Surrender to the universal flow.  Ask to be guided to the people, situations and experiences that will support your highest and best self.  Be willing to admit that you don’t know exactly what you want or need.  Decide how you want to finish out the astrological year, ask for help with endings, and prepare yourself for a brilliant new beginning.

LEO // The Hanged Man, reversed

For you, this month is about finding a better balance, Leo.  Find a better balance between surrender and action.  You don’t have to always be on.  You don’t always have to be working, doing, achieving… It is easy to confuse constant motion with productivity, but sometimes we receive what we need most when we allow ourselves to take a conscious pause.  Once we receive the clarity and inspiration that we really need, we are able to move ahead with renewed clarity and force.  Be willing to suspend action this month.  Be willing to suspend constant interaction, so that you can create space to sink into your heart and hear your intuition more clearly.  Do this personal work so that you can get crystal clear on your intentions as we finish out the astrological year and prepare ourselves for yet another new beginning.  This is the cycle of things.  We go in so we can come out with more certainty and strength of purpose.  You’re a natural powerhouse, Leo, but be willing to suspend for strengths for a moment and tune into the Piscean energy this month.  Get in greater alignment with your intuitive side and you’ll be feeling unstoppable by the end of the month.

VIRGO // Justice, reversed

Contraction is often a precursor to expansion, and this month is all about surrendering to your contractions, Virgo.  Surrender helps us to see ourselves more clearly.  It is an equally vulnerable and powerful act.  In fact, surrender helps us to understand the immense strength that lies within our vulnerability.  The more we surrender, the more we are able to access this strength because we free up all of the energy that was previously being used in our efforts to push and force things to happen.  When we push, we disconnect from the universal flow, and when we are disconnected from the universal flow, we identify with the ego.  The ego can be useful when it is kept in line, but if it is allowed to rule one’s thoughts and actions, it will keep you small.  Connecting with the ego means a life of safety over potentiality.  Connecting with the universal flow means a life of infinite possibility.  You will face struggles either way.  Your power lies in your choices.  Do you let your struggles bully you into inaction?  Or, do you leave yourself alone, lean in a little more, and keep moving in the direction of your evolution and expansion?  The choice is yours.

LIBRA // Five of Cups

We can’t control our losses, but we can choose when and how we let go of them.  Learning how to graciously let go is a crucial part of the healing process after we have suffered a loss.  Letting go is about honoring what was and creating space for what will be.  It’s easy to fixate on what we think should have been.  What would happen if you accepted life exactly as it is right now, Libra?  What if all the heartbreak is guiding you toward something greater?  What wisdom might your pain have to share with you if you gave it space and let it speak?  What if you kept moving forward, no matter what?  There’s a feeling of loss and a heavy current of energy moving through you this month, Libra, but you must attune yourself to what is salvageable amongst the wreckage.  This month provides you with the opportunity for a powerful clearing.  Clear out the past. Clear out the pain.  Clear out the people that bring you down.  Clear out the work that steals your joy.  Clear it all out and make room for some incredible magic to manifest in your life as we enter a new astrological year.

SCORPIO // Strength   

When you feel like giving up where do you find the strength to carry on, Scorpio?  What reserves of strength do you keep hidden within the self?  We all have that one image, word or thought that reconnects us to our strength and divinity during times of great strife.  This month you are being asked to spend more time exploring the depths of your inner life.  Strength comes in many forms.  Strength can be found in softness, emotional release and radical self-love as much as it can be found in setting firm boundaries, fighting for what’s right, and walking away.  Our inherent strength and our intuitive knowing are deeply intertwined.  Only you can truly define what strength is for you.  Get quiet.  Go within and align with your higher self to see where your true strength lies and how you can optimize it as we move into a new astrological year this month.  This time isn’t about self-improvement, rather, it is all about self-empowerment.  You’re on the right track.  Trust that your life is in place and don’t be afraid to let out your personal battle cry as you move toward the new.  Connect with your unique sentiment, no matter what it looks or sounds like.

SAGITTARIUS // Death

Life is cyclical.  Infinite cycles of energy are moving within us and around us all of the time.  This month you may find yourself particularly aligned with a death cycle, Sagittarius.  In this sense, death does not mean physical death, but rather a sudden change, required release or inevitable ending.  This month you are the snake that must shed its skin in order to grow, evolve and thrive.  Some death cycles are subtle.  Humans shed over a pound of skin a year without hardly any notice.  Some death cycles unexpectedly show up on our doorstep and smack us in the face.  People hurt us.  People leave us.  People throw us away.  What and who do you need to throw away this month, Sagittarius?  What do you need to do in order to close out this astrological year feeling lighter and free to move forward into the next?  Death is only hard if you aren’t willing to let go.  Letting go is all about embracing change and trusting in the potentiality of a new cycle.  We find balance in movement when we go with the flow.  Don’t hold on.  Let go and let the universe surprise you.

CAPRICORN // Queen of Wands

There is a burst of fire and creative energy coming your way this month, Capricorn.  Speak your truth.  Say it loud!  If you feel called to start a work or art project, do it!  The energy this month is perfectly aligned for you to birth your creativity in new ways.  In what ways do you feel stifled?  In what ways do you feel silenced?  In what ways have you been holding yourself back?  This time isn’t about finding the right words or carefully planning out how to act.  This time is about tuning into your internal fire and then expressing it out of yourself.  This isn’t about effort; this is about authenticity.  This isn’t about outcomes; this is about passion.  Get back to your primal urges and desires.  There is no right or wrong with regard to your self-expression this month, Capricorn, there is only you and the world needs you to show up and show us what you’re made of.  Be willing to explore new avenues of expression.  Do what you normally wouldn’t do.  If you write then sing, if you sing then dance.  What form of self-expression scares you the most?  Do it and give it your all.

AQUARIUS // The Chariot  

You’ll never know if you can fly unless you take the leap, Aquarius.  You can’t succeed if you never try.  We’ve all heard it before.  Just do it.  Take a chance.  Inspiration can often feel like one big cliché, and yet here we are, still struggling to begin.  If you’re feeling stuck, Aquarius, it’s time to take a long hard look at where your focus has primarily been.  Has too much of your time and energy been given to external accomplishments over internal peace and satisfaction?    Do you prioritize authenticity or applause?  Really take some time to evaluate where you are at this month, and then be willing to make some necessary changes.  Make the changes that will bring you back into balance with yourself and your authentic wants and needs.  Make changes that will help you to better integrate all parts of the self.  Above all else, make sure that you are staying true to you.  Persevere through the worry and negative self-talk.  With a little bit of recalibration you’ll soon be in an optimal state to confidently forge ahead, birth your creativity and offer your many gifts and talents to the world.

PISCES // The World

It’s your season, Pisces, and it’s time to celebrate your sensitivity, intuitive talents, and creative spirit.  Of all the zodiac signs you have the deepest understanding of the beauty that can be found in letting go.  You embrace the cycles of life, and that is one of your greatest strengths.  As the last sign of the astrological year, you have the gift of intuitively knowing how to navigate the difficult transition that can occur from ending to new beginning.  The energy this month is perfectly aligned with your personal power, so own it!  Release any judgments and fears that you may have about the past, so that you can move into the next cycle of your life with much greater ease.  Be gentle and nurture yourself through the transitions that you’re moving through.  Examine the fears that have been holding you back from fully moving forward.  Shine a light on your insecurities and listen to your intuition.  You know that the new won’t have room to sprout if your life is overrun with weeds from the past, so do the inner work and create room for your dreams to take root and your future self to bloom.

FEBRUARY TAROTSCOPES by Jillann Morlan  

Spirit Speak Tarot Deck by Mary Elizabeth Evans 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ARIES // Five of Pentacles, reversed

ARIES-Feb.jpg

Does it feel like you’re struggling to keep your head above water, Aries?  Do your reserves of energy and creativity feel depleted?  In times of increased fear and uncertainty, it’s crucial that we consciously take time to re-center and replenish ourselves.  Where do you feel safe?  Who makes you feel truly seen?  What acts of self-care consistently bring you back into a state of balance?  The world needs your passion and inner fire more than ever, so do what you need to do this month in order to get back in alignment with your higher self and a deeper sense of purpose.  It’s important not to lose sight of the bigger picture.  Aquarius season asks us all to step outside of ourselves and examine the structures that both support and restrict us.  Increased awareness has the ability to demystify our pain and activate us in order to move forward.  Remember that your feelings are not facts.  You always have the power of choice.  Choose to keep your thoughts high and compassionately detach from any negative self-talk that is keeping you down.  Choose to be happy.  It is not always the easiest choice to make, but your joy, health and wellbeing are always worth the fight. 

TAURUS // Five of Wands, reversed

Sometimes we just need a clean slate.  Sometimes it is necessary to consciously burn everything to the ground so that we can empower ourselves by virtue of choice and begin again on our own terms.  Aquarius is the visionary of the zodiac, and Aquarius season is a call to action for us all to get in greater alignment with our truest values and renew our authenticity, not only for ourselves, but for others too. Aquarius knows that when the individual is thriving the collective will be positively affected.  When you unapologetically show up as your most authentic self you give others permission to do the same.  When you allow yourself to fully express your creativity and joy you emit positive waves of energy all around you that communicate to others that it is safe to be seen and heard.  Where have you been holding back, Taurus?  Where have you been pushing too hard?  What needs to fall away in order for the real you to shine forth?  Are you willing to set fire to the beliefs, systems and structures, self-imposed or otherwise, that are keeping you small and identified with the ego?  Don’t be afraid of destruction.  Sometimes we must first destroy in order to create.

GEMINI // Three of Wands

Asking is a precursor to receiving.  What do you want, Gemini?  What do you need?  What are you not asking for?  You’re well on your way to some much deserved success this month, but before you charge ahead with your work and various agendas, take some time to assess where you can create more space in your life in order to receive.  A beautiful and incredibly powerful way of opening yourself up to more receptivity, positivity and abundance is to offer up thoughts of gratitude.  When we find peace with where we are at and give praise for all that we currently have, we send a powerful signal to the universe that says we are ready and willing to receive more.  Do you have difficulty celebrating yourself?  If so, why do you think that is?  Be willing to investigate any attachments you have to a sense of lack.  Be willing to examine any thoughts or feelings that you may have about yourself and your abilities that prevent you from fully experiencing the breadth of your own greatness and sharing it with others.  Work to first identify, and then transcend, any obstacles that are in your way.  Your future self is waiting for you on the other side of fear.

CANCER // Queen of Cups

You rule the realm of feelings and emotions, Cancer.  Do you often feel overwhelmed, alienated or even ostracized because of your sensitivity?  Do not fear. You are not alone. We are moving through some dark times. You are not weak. In truth, it is your deeply sensitive nature that makes you so strong.  There is no need to hide your true feelings.  Don't hold back.  Be vulnerable.  Be creative. Your vulnerability is your power, and you will find that you have an increased ability to lead and inspire others if you own it.  Speak it.  Embody it.  Rise up and invite others to join you. The world needs your gifts more than ever, Cancer.  Be a guide for us during these trying times. Teach us how to feel as deeply as you do.  We will not heal until we fully feel through our individual and collective traumas.  Pushing won't get you anywhere this month; in fact, it very well might set you back.  Commit to softness.  Light, easy and gentle are your words for the month of February.  Hold space for yourself and others.  Acknowledge all feelings and emotions that arise and let them flow through you with as much ease as possible.  

LEO // The High Priestess, reversed

You’re a natural leader and one of the most extroverted signs of the zodiac, Leo, but in truth, how deep are your connections with others, and how intimate are you with yourself?  This month you’re being asked to reexamine the various roles that you play and how you show up, or fail to show up, for yourself.  Where does your authenticity come through most?  Where do you feel bogged down by superficiality?  Take a look at your personal relationships, as well as, your daily interactions with strangers.  How in touch do you feel with your intuition?  Do you find it easy or difficult to read others?  If you have a gut reaction about a particular person or situation, do you follow it?  How much do other people’s thoughts, feelings and reactions play into your personal choices?  These are all important questions to ask this month.  Be willing to go on a journey of deep self-inquiry and observe yourself without judgment.  You don’t need to make any radical changes, but you can empower yourself by simply noticing and acknowledging where you might be able to stand in your truth a little more.  It’s time to get in greater alignment with your authentic voice and trust your inner knowing.

VIRGO // Two of Pentacles

The world is full of energy drains.  Especially, in confusing and fearful times such as these, we are inundated with new worries and distractions every day.  Where does most of your energy go in a given day, Virgo?  How would you define the quality of your life force?  Do you confidently emit your own frequency?  Or, are you more likely to absorb energies from the people around you?  Aquarius isn’t afraid to stand alone, but Aquarius also knows that the most profound healing happens in community.  This month you are being asked to find a better balance between the personal and the social in order to align yourself with a deeper sense of purpose.  We need to be aligned with our individuality as much as we need to feel a part of, and supported by, the collective.  But, it’s crucial that we strike a balance between these two experiences, so that we can stand firmly in our truth no matter what situation we find ourselves in.  Aquarius season invites us all into a deeper state of self-inquiry.  Know where you stand with yourself first before you reach out to others.  If you do this work, your renewed resolve will equally command respect from and inspire those around you.

LIBRA // The Hermit

Now is the perfect time to take a conscious pause, and you are very much in need of a rest, Libra.  Contrary to what the culture at large tells us, we are not supposed to be in constant motion.  Just like the natural world, we need periods of hibernation in order to process and integrate the cycles that we are moving through.  Are you having a hard time getting motivated?  Are you still dragging your feet into the New Year?  That’s okay!  February is a perfect time to reassess and recommit to your hopes and dreams.  Don’t force yourself to do anything until you feel clear about how you would like to move forward.  Don’t rush!  You might feel like you need more alone time than usual this month.  Sometimes the most effective form of self-care is sitting alone in silence.  Don’t wait until your physical body burns out to take time for yourself.  You must be willing to put yourself first.  You must be willing to get your needs met.  Be assertive when communicating with others about what you need.  Be an observer this month.  The time for action will be here again soon.  Don’t worry.  Be still and present with yourself, and trust that it is enough.

SCORPIO // Knight of Cups  

You’re well acquainted with the complicated and often excruciating process of transformation, Scorpio.  You’re more in tune with your shadow side than the rest of us, and that makes you an important figure during these trying times.  What can you teach others about integration of the light and shadow?  How might you be able to help others work through individual and collective trauma?  Where is your intuition guiding you?  Aquarius is the visionary and the humanitarian of the zodiac, and Aquarius season asks you to get in tune with your innate healing abilities and a deeper sense of service.  Be willing to show up for others in a new way this month.  Be open and playful with regard to how you hold space for yourself and others.  Healing can happen in the most beautiful and unexpected ways.  It can just as easily occur during a quiet conversation as it can during a dance party, cooking a meal with friends or going for a walk alone in the woods.  Align yourself with infinite possibility this month.  Go where you are guided.  Choose a higher perspective in all that you do and you will be surprised at the incredible grounding and sense of purpose that you receive in return.

SAGITTARIUS // Eight of Pentacles  

What reality are you creating for yourself right now, Sagittarius?  Is it congruent with your deepest desires?  If not, why?  Do you consciously create time and space to pursue your dreams?  This month you are being advised to take a long hard look at where your energy goes in a given day.  Do you often feel drained or stuck?  Perhaps, it is time to get in touch with your creativity.  What ignites your inner fire?  How can you get in greater alignment with your higher self?  Once you open yourself up to new possibilities you will find that they are in fact endless.  Staying open is the key to your success.  Hard work and dedication will always pay off, but you will inevitably be disappointed if what you are working toward is not in line with what you truly want.  Your desires hold the wisdom that will eventually lead to your evolution.  The dreams that live deep within your heart are valid.  Follow your obsessions.  Find a way to more fully integrate them into your life and work.  Don’t compartmentalize.  Remember your wholeness, empower yourself with creative action and you will soon manifest what it is that you truly desire.

CAPRICORN // The World  

We're well into the New Year now, but for many of us, 2017 has felt much more like a regression than a new beginning.  The world is in a state of disarray and we're facing many mental, emotional and spiritual blocks, individually and collectively.  It's time to check in with yourself, Capricorn.  How are you feeling?  Do you feel ready and able to move forward?  Do you feel stuck?  Work to identify the people and energies that may be holding you back from welcoming in the new.  We cannot fully begin the next cycle of our lives until we completely let go of the past.  In what areas are you still identified with old ways of being in the world that no longer serve you?  Imagine letting it all go.  Allow yourself to revel in the void of not knowing what might come next if you break free from old patterns.  The ego doesn't like change, but we can't evolve and truly step into our power unless we fearlessly embrace the unknown.  Be willing to sit still with yourself in a place of not knowing this month.  Be inspired by the void.  Let it propel you forward into a new world full of endless possibilities.

AQUARIUS // Justice, reversed  

Life isn't fair, but that should never be an excuse to stay stuck.  This month you are being called to reclaim your power and make a conscious effort to exercise it, Aquarius.  The world needs your vision, creativity and unique gifts more than ever.  It's Aquarius season and universally, we are now in the Age of Aquarius, so you may feel a much deeper pull in the direction of your true calling and heart's purest desires both this month and beyond. We can no longer afford to be complacent with the way things are.  We must evolve.  We must create something new.  We must be authentic in all that we do. We must dig deeper and patiently wait for opportunities that align with our values and vision to appear.  Don't settle for anything less, Aquarius.  We are all being called to crack ourselves open, birth our creativity, and make sure that our voices are heard.  We must be loud, and we must be clear.  It's time to step up and activate others. You're a natural leader for the new age, Aquarius, so rise up, stand in your power and be a guiding light.  We need you.  Show us the way.

PISCES // The Magician

You need to give yourself more credit, Pisces.  You are more than capable.  You are powerful, and you have all the tools you need for success.  Be willing to give yourself a lot more love this month and compassionately investigate the origin of your insecurities.  By shining a light on your worries we immediately reclaim the power they have over us.  Naming our fears helps us to detach from them.  What fears do you consistently identify with?  How can you transcend them and get in greater alignment with your higher self?  This is the personal work that you are being called to do this month.  Once you have mastered a more truthful and consistent experience with the self, reach out to help others do the same.  Community is becoming increasingly important for us all as our world is becoming much more divisive.  Take care of yourself, so that you can extend a helping hand to others.  Listen to your intuition.  Own what you know.  Stand in your truth in a way that creates space for others to do the same.  Don’t be afraid to act.  You have so much more to offer than you may be willing to recognize right now.

 

 

January Tarotscopes

By Jillann Morlan

Spirit Speak Tarot Deck by Mary Elizabeth Evans

 ARIES // Nine of Swords

 The New Year is an excellent time for setting intentions and reigniting your inner fire, Aries.  Do the work that the season requires.  Be willing to say goodbye to everyone and everything that no longer serves you, and mean it.  If it doesn’t feel good, set it free.  You don’t have to completely overhaul your life, but you do have to get clear on what you truly want and need.  Start small.  Take a deeper look at your desires.  What really turns you on?  Let go.  Go there.  Tap into your childlike imagination this month.  Have fun with the changes and transitions.  Don’t over think it.  Be light.  Change can be quite joyful if you stay out of your head, listen to your heart, and go with the flow.  With Mercury in retrograde until January 8th, and the shadow period that follows it, we are all advised to ease into our new beginnings, and you are no exception, Aries.  Get the fire started, but be wary of burning out prematurely.  It’s Capricorn season, and you are advised to take some cues from this ambitious yet grounded and persistent sign.  There’s no need to rush.  Don’t let your mind bully you into the better, stronger, faster mode of thinking.  Slow and steady will undoubtedly win the race this month.

 

TAURUS // Two of Pentacles, reversed

You’re advised to find a better balance this month, Taurus.  Be careful not to take on too much too soon as we move into the New Year.  If you find yourself in overcompensation mode, stop!  Sometimes life can feel like a cruel juggling act, but before you give up, make sure that you aren’t taking on undue stress or energy that isn’t yours.  If you’re still holding onto people or situations from your past that invite chaos, purge them as quickly as you can.  You deserve peace, quiet and calm, and you must have them in order to gather the focus needed to carry you through a potentially trying month.  You deserve balance, but it isn’t a given.  Sometimes we have to work a lot harder than we want to in order to achieve the balance we need, but it is work that must be done.  Slow down and create some space before settling into this next phase of your life.  Mercury is in retrograde through January 8th, so the cosmic climate is supporting your slow start to the New Year.  Trust in this time and know that retrogrades aren’t something to wish away.  They are, in fact, a beautiful time for inner work and recalibration if you’re willing to quiet the mind and really feel through your frustrations and discomforts.

GEMINI // Two of Wands, reversed  

 You’re likely to be stepping up into something really sweet this month, Gemini, but it will require more trust and patience on your part before it manifests.  Maybe you aren’t exactly where you want to be, think you should be, or even need to be as we enter the New Year, but don’t start comparing yourself to others.  Above all else, you must trust in the unique timing of your life as you embrace your new beginnings.  Comparison is one of the quickest ways to kill your joy and block your success.  Stay present with whatever shows up for you this month.  Own it.  Hold space for it.  Love it unconditionally.  Love yourself unconditionally.  If you come up against some discomfort or dis-ease, let it move through you with as much lightness and compassion as you can.  Keep working at the things that make you happy and that spark joy within you.  Keep writing, making art, singing, dancing, running, skipping, laughing… Keep being you and believing in yourself.  Get lost in your passions and give yourself a break.  Commit to leaving yourself alone and letting your life unfold.  Surrender to the process, trust that you are supported, and you will soon find yourself in an optimal position to move forward and manifest your deepest desires with much greater ease.

 

CANCER // Four of Cups

Our dreams work in tandem with our creativity.  Our dreams are full of wisdom, hope and love.  Our dreams hold the key to our future, but not if they become too rigid.  Our dreams are worth holding onto, but only if they encourage us to keep flying.  Are you clutching to outmoded beliefs about yourself, what you’re capable of, or dreams that you’ve outgrown, Cancer?  If so, why?  What do you feel you have to gain from holding on?  What would happen if you let go?  Dreams are meant to inspire.  If our dreams aren’t changing, we aren’t evolving.  Be willing to examine your old dreams and release what no longer serves as you look forward to the New Year.  We can’t fully step into new beginnings until we fully bless and release the past.  Focus on what is here now.  Honor where you’ve been, but refocus your energy and restart from where you are right this very moment.  What dreams have already come true for you?  What dreams are you living right now?  Take it all in.  You have a great deal to celebrate as we begin a new cycle, Cancer.  Believe it.  Indulge in new dreams.  Believe in them, and you will be surprised at how quickly things start to align for you.

 LEO // King of Pentacles, reversed  

What do you value most, Leo?  How worthy do you think you are?  Make sure that your longing for success and your desire to be admired by others doesn’t cloud your perception of self-worth this month.  You may be one of the most driven and ambitious signs of the zodiac, but as we begin the New Year, you are advised to examine, and perhaps even reroute, where you’re putting the bulk of your focus.  Are you spending more time and energy on outward accomplishments as opposed to inner growth?  Goal-oriented living can be a great inspiration, and it will certainly provide results, but make sure you are truly invested in the work required to accomplish your goals before moving forward with them.  If you find yourself out of alignment, don’t be afraid to make some adjustments.  Stick up for yourself and what you truly want and need.  Keep coming back to your personal truth throughout the month.  Look to the cycles of nature for reassurance and support.  Trust that your lack will always be replenished even if the season feels like it will never end.  Abundance comes in many different forms, but remember that it has less to do with what you achieve and more to do with your core beliefs about who you are and what you deserve.

 VIRGO // Knight of Pentacles

It may not be completely clear where the path is leading you at this moment, Virgo, but know that you are on it and that you are being led in the right direction.  The energies of the month have you aligning with truth and deeply deserved success.  Trust that you have all the tools that you need in order to reach your goals, and keep going!  January will not be so much about new beginnings for you as it will be about perseverance and keeping the faith.  The seeds of desire that you planted months ago will begin to sprout when you least expect it, but you must be patient.  Mercury is in retrograde until January 8th so don’t worry if things seem to be getting off to a less than stellar start this month.  Keep doing the things that inspire you and ground you in your creativity and your truth.  Tune into your roots and reach out to your established systems of support for nourishment and a boost in confidence if you fail to see results and start to feel wary.  It’s not your business to know how long, short, bumpy or smooth the road will be.  This season is about the joys and rewards of committing to something bigger than your fears and then reaping the rewards. 

LIBRA // King of Cups, reversed

Endings are hard, but beginnings can be even harder.  Rejoicing in a fresh start doesn’t mean that you won’t have difficulty navigating the changes that lie ahead.  Be extra kind to yourself this month, Libra.  You are moving through a lot.  You may find yourself oscillating between optimism and dread as we begin the New Year.  The current Mercury retrograde period that lasts until January 8th will most likely exacerbate the imbalance that you’re feeling, but you really don’t have anything to worry about.  Ease up on self-criticism and trust in the transitions that are occurring for yourself and others.  Allow adjustments to be made accordingly and with as little strain as possible.  You may feel stuck, but trust that you are still part of a larger flow and that you are truly being taken care of.  Be careful not to create your own problems just because you feel restless and uncertain about where things are headed.  Take more time to be alone if you need it, and be mindful of your relationships.  First and foremost, work toward greater self-acceptance.  You might not feel it just yet, but greater equilibrium is on the horizon.  You will have a better chance at receiving the clarity and calm that you desire if you simply leave yourself alone.

SCORPIO // Five of Cups, reversed

 

As we welcome in the New Year, we must make a conscious and concerted effort to purge the things that will not serve us as we move forward.  Does it feel like you are carrying some extra baggage, Scorpio?  Lighten your load!  New beginnings and setting intentions work well in tandem, but your efforts will be rendered useless if you don’t fully let the past go before committing to the new.  Take the time you need to mourn what needs to fall away, but be careful not to romanticize the past or hold on too tightly.  Don’t expect immediate change.  You must lean into your personal evolution and allow the process of transformation to unfold.  Transformation can be very uncomfortable, but trust that it is unfolding in your favor.  Transformation can feel like a downward spiral, but you will ultimately be released from the discomfort and directed toward a future where you are more likely to align with your purpose and optimize your joy.  How can you build deeper trust, Scorpio?  When we strive but fail to understand our circumstances, we can be overcome with fear.  You may not always be able to understand, but you can always trust.  Let go and get solid in your faith.  Trust when no one else does and you will be invincible.   

SAGITTARIUS // Justice, reversed

It takes incredible courage to examine oneself.  It takes an immense amount of work to fully take responsibility for one’s life.  Blame is the easy way out, but it always comes with strings attached, and those strings will inevitably prevent us from moving forward.  Are you holding a grudge, Sagittarius?  Do you find yourself feeling angry or resentful often?  Who makes you feel unworthy?  What keeps you small?  Are you willing to take a stand?  Are you willing to cut some energetic chords?  Are you willing to embrace new beginnings?  It’s easy to identify with pain because we see and experience it all of the time.  We have become so used to our suffering that many of us have forgotten that we still have the power of choice.  Even in the midst of terrible pain and injustice we have the power to choose how we react.  Life is more often about our reactions rather than our actions.  Get your reactions under control and you will be able to see yourself and others more clearly.  Once you have clarity you will no longer question when and how to act.  Have compassion for yourself and others.  Take more responsibility for your choices.  Control is an illusion, but you can overcome any obstacle when you engage your personal power and choose a higher perspective.   

CAPRICORN // Three of Pentacles, reversed

 It’s your season, Capricorn, and it’s time to do what you do best – work!  You may not be feeling very motivated as we kick off the New Year, but don’t get discouraged.  With Mercury in retrograde until January 8th the cosmic climate will be very conducive for taking a pause before moving forward.  Use the downtime to get yourself, your relationships and your affairs in order so that when things do start moving more quickly, you will be feeling centered and ready for action.  Consciously align with your innate powers of dedication and persistence this month, but be careful not to overwork yourself or get stuck in a rut.  If you feel like you want to switch things up or explore working in a new way, go for it!  New beginnings call for creativity and experimentation, so allow yourself to have more fun and a greater sense of freedom in all that you do.  Have you been feeling the urge to engage in more creative pursuits lately?  If you feel called to pick up an instrument, a paintbrush or a pen, don’t hold back.  The energies of the month are very much in favor of your creativity, so if you feel the call, answer it and let yourself be surprised at what unfolds.

AQUARIUS // Two of Cups, reversed

You may be the visionary of the zodiac, Aquarius, but that doesn’t mean you’re always right.  Let the current Mercury retrograde period that will last until January 8th, be a time where you can really lean into the discomfort of not knowing.  Let yourself be open to greater guidance from others.  You can still lead yourself and others without assuming complete control.  In fact, you’re wise to give up more control in all areas of your life as you move forward into the New Year.  Create more space for experimentation and enchantment.  Share your ideas with others and invite them to collaborate with a deeper sense of play and pleasure.  Find greater joy in your work and your relationships.  You may feel like you want to hole up this month, but make an effort to connect with others.  Take your time and ease yourself into the New Year.  You don’t have to have everything and everyone figured out right away.  Let the insights and information that you are seeking come to you slowly.  If you allow yourself to have more fun gathering the pieces, the process won’t feel like such a complicated puzzle.  Don’t take everything so seriously and be open to inspiration.  There’s more magic out there than you think! 

PISCES // The High Priestess

Forgiveness is a crucial part of release.  If you’re having a difficult time moving forward, Pisces, perhaps, you need to take a step back and see if there is anyone or any situation that needs your forgiveness.  Forgiveness isn’t about pardoning negative situations or the deeds of others who have wronged us.  Forgiveness is about transforming pain, hurt and injustice into self-love.  We forgive others so that we can free up the time and energy that they have occupied in service of our own expansion and evolution.  When you hold onto toxic feelings or emotions you hold yourself back from living a free and joyful life.  Take some time this month to go over past hurts and be willing to release them.  You can do this simply by sitting with yourself and requesting that your mind, body and spirit purge anyone and anything that no longer serves you and your higher purpose.  Or, you can write down the people, situations and things that cling to your heart the most.  Ask the universe for assistance in releasing them and then set the paper on fire.  Bury the ashes somewhere in nature or give them to a body of water.  Let the power of alchemy take over, celebrate your freedom, and move forward with more confidence and ease.

December Tarotscopes

By Jillann Morlan
Spirit Speak Tarot Deck by Mary Elizabeth Evans

ARIES // Nine of Pentacles

As we individually and collectively move through the death cycles of Scorpio season, we are faced with a profound need to clear out what is no longer serving us.  Sagittarius season asks us to wholeheartedly embrace new beginnings.  It offers up abundant support as we work toward rebirth and a renewed sense of courage and action.  December is prime time for you to gather all of your resources and tap into your courage, Aries.  Get to work!  It’s time to turn your ideas into realities.  We have all been undergoing some intense transitions.  We have all been forced to make healing a priority.  Now is the time to honor how far you’ve come.  Don’t be afraid to put yourself out into the world and test your strength.  Trust that your dreams and endeavors are supported. The energies of the month are especially aligned to aid you in developing work and career pursuits.  If you have been experiencing a sense of lack recently, December is sure to remind you of your innate worth.  Work to expand your perspective of abundance.  Know that everything you need is already within you, but do the work you need to do in order to create space in your life to receive something new.  Ask the universe for that you truly want.  Don’t hold back, and trust that your life is in perfect place.   

 

TAURUS // Knight of Wands

It's time to get fired up, Taurus!  Sagittarius season is in full swing and we're all being asked to tap into our spirit of adventure and warrior energy, but your call to action will be felt deeper than most.  Sagittarius is the Archer, and it's time for you to gather your arrows, fearlessly take aim, and let them soar through the air.  Don't worry about outcomes.  Find strength and purpose in taking the first step.  Let go and trust the process as it unfolds.  Sagittarius isn't afraid of aiming too high, and you shouldn't be either.  Don't be afraid to step into your greatness.  December is going to give us all a much needed break from the discomfort and emotional turmoil of the past few months.  Take advantage of this lighter and more focused energy while it's here.  December is an ideal time to start a new project or travel.  Be spontaneous!  Switch things up.  Travel doesn't always have to involve time and money.  Travel can simply mean a change in consciousness.  Broaden your horizons and expand your state of mind.  Get out of your comfort zone.  Send a love letter.  Spend the day exploring a part of your city that you've never been to.  Meditate on a rooftop.  Write a manifesto on your bathroom floor.  Everything is now within reach.  Don't hold yourself back, Taurus.  Get up and go!

 

GEMINI // The High Priestess

Our individual and collective fears have surfaced with a new intensity over the last few months.  We've moved through death cycles both within and without.  There has been confusion, excruciating pain, and incredible transformation.  The world has radically changed and so have we.  There is a collective awakening occurring and we are all required to do an extraordinary amount of inner work in order to prepare us for new beginnings.  Sagittarius is a warrior and Sagittarius season is a call to action, but this month you are being called to get quiet, Gemini.  This is a beautiful time to get better acquainted with the art of manifestation.  Manifestation starts with intention, and intention requires that you consciously set aside time for inner work.  If you answer the call to go within, you will undoubtedly be gifted with clearer visions not only for yourself, but also for the collective.  Now is not the time to ignore your intuition.  If you have a gut feeling about someone or something, trust it.  The world is in need of people dedicated to higher consciousness and greater psychic awareness.  You are being called to kickstart this work for yourself on a much deeper level this month, Gemini.  Understand that your reality is a direct reflection of your inner life.  Dedicate yourself to quiet.  Commit yourself to calm.  Plant seeds of intention and patiently wait while your wildest dreams manifest in your life.

 

CANCER // The Devil

How do you keep yourself small, Cancer?  What lies do you consistently tell yourself?  How much longer are you willing to make excuses that keep you stagnant when change is crying out in service of your higher self and personal evolution?  Sagittarius season is a call to pull yourself out of whatever rut you currently find yourself in.  It's time to cut the ties that have you bound to addiction, low self-worth and fear.  It's time to put yourself first.  Self-care is a revolutionary act.  Ignore the naysayers.  Do whatever you need to do in order to get clear.  Once you get clear don't be afraid to act.  Make a conscious decision to step into your power.  Stop absorbing the energies around you this month and start emitting your own unique divine light.  This world needs you, and it wants you at your best.  Small acts of self-care and self-love send a signal to the universe that you are ready to receive assistance.  Send out the call and receive the support you need.  You don't have to hit rock bottom in order to incite deeply transformative acts in your life.  Start where you are.  Start today.  We are conditioned to accept pain and mediocrity in a multitude of forms.  We often ask ourselves, "How bad can it get?" Stop waiting around to find out and instead see how good you can make it.

 

LEO // Five of Cups

As we come out of an intense season of death, healing, and transformation, it's often difficult to remember what we have left in the face of all that we have lost.  The key for you this month, Leo, is to trust that everything that has fallen away has done so with a much greater purpose in mind than you might be able to recognize at this time.  If you truly feel like all is lost, take a step back and simply acknowledge the space that remains.  What would you like to fill this new space with?  What does it feel like?  Does it excite or frighten you?  Why? Grieve what has gone away, but then let go and get creative.  Sagittarius season is a time for action and new beginnings.  Don't allow yourself to get stuck this month.  Baby steps will suffice, but keep the energy flowing.  You cannot fully step into the beauty and wonder of new beginnings until you completely let go.  Let go of your past.  Let go of your fears.  Let go of your expectations.  The more you consciously let go, the more space you create.  The universe supports conscious intention and action, and it will reward you with new manifestations.  Co-create with the divine this month, Leo.  Give into expansion.  Trust that the universe is working with you and for you.  Trust in your infinite worth, and never settle. 

 

VIRGO // The Empress

You're invited to do some deep soul nurturing this month, Virgo.  Indulge your senses and explore new pathways to access your creativity.  How have you been feeling lately?  Do you need extra rest?  More play? What are you craving?  Listen to your body and give yourself exactly what you need.  Sagittarius season invites you to redefine your relationship to pleasure.  Don't hold back!  Your desires are worthy and pleasure shouldn't be a luxury.  Once you are clear on what pleasure means for you, set intentions and take action in order to manifest more of it in your life.  The last couple of months have kicked up a lot of dust.  We are facing a resurgence of pain and trauma both individually and collectively.  It can seem trivial to think of pleasure in times such as these.  It can feel horribly selfish to put yourself first, but in truth, it is more crucial than ever that you do this work, Virgo.  We can only ever show up for others to the extent that we are willing to show up for ourselves.  When you're depleted and allow yourself to go unsatisfied for prolonged periods of time, you shrink and start to absorb low vibrations.  Do whatever you need to do in order to stay high this month.  The steps you take toward self-love will have a profound effect on you personally, but they will also be felt in the collective.  

 

LIBRA // Seven of Wands

It's important to keep your momentum going this month, Libra.  Now is the perfect time to feel through any fear that may be coming up for you and push through it.  It's Sagittarius season and Sagittarius knows how to act.  Sagittarius sees it through to the end. Sagittarius knows what it takes and never gives in.  The collective energy of the season is perfectly aligned with the energy that's coming up for you, Libra.  Dedication and hard work is necessary, but if your work is aligned with your soul path and truth, you will be surprised at how little resistance you will face throughout the month.  Now is the time to kick it into high gear.  Persevere and the universe will support your progress.  Be willing to take some calculated risks this month.  Don't be afraid to engage in some competition.  You are a true contender, and whatever you're currently seeking is definitely worth the fight.  Now is not the time to entertain failure of any kind.  Even when things don't work out the way you had planned, there are important lessons and gifts to be gleaned from the experience.  Be willing to plant the seeds of wisdom that you have collected from past "failures" and forge ahead.  Nothing worthwhile ever comes easy, so keep up a solid work ethic and trust that success is within reach.  

 

SCORPIO // Two of Wands, reversed

We've all been asked to make some necessary changes in the past few months.  We're experiencing major shifts in the collective, and those of us who have been living unconsciously are being forced to wake up.  Nothing ever stays the same, but times like these call for conscious action toward transformation and new beginnings.  In general, the cosmic climate is in support of our needed changes both individually and collectively, but we must harness our personal energies and do the work required to align ourselves with the change we wish to see both in our lives and in the world.  You're likely to be feeling more balance in your personal life this month, Scorpio.  Recognize it and do what you can to sustain it. The collective chaos we are currently experiencing can be overwhelming, but don't forget that you can always come back to center.  You are always in control of your reactions.  Be willing to take responsibility for your own healing and evolution.  Avoid extremes and recenter as often as you need to this month.  You are a natural healer, and there is important work for you to do in the world, Scorpio, but healing is a journey that must always start from within.  Find your balance and you will be able to tap into new levels of energy and creativity that will aid you in doing the work you were born to do.  

 

SAGITTARIUS // Ace of Cups

It's your season, Sagittarius, and your personal energy for the month is truly something to rejoice in.  It's time to celebrate your successes and look ahead with optimism and joy in your heart.  It is a time for fresh perspectives, new beginnings, abundance, creative flow, and new love.  The possibilities may feel endless for you this month, and that's because they are!  Take it all in.  Take your time in deciding what direction you wish to go in.  If recent changes in your life have left you feeling a bit lost or alone, don't worry!  Contractions are a precursor to expansion, and December is shaping up to be an incredibly expansive time for you, Sagittarius.  Let it be easy this month.  If you find yourself getting worked up or bogged down by feelings of uncertainty, do what you can to release them and go with the flow of whatever is coming up for you in the moment.  The universe wants to gift you something new this month.  Know that you are worthy of the blessings that are sure to be coming your way and open yourself up in order to receive them.  Even when things don't seem to be going right, trust that they are.  Sometimes detours are necessary to get us on the right track, but once you are on the right track, Sagittarius, there is nothing you can't accomplish. 

 

CAPRICORN // King of Cups

Knowing how and when to act is one of your strong suits, Capricorn, and Sagittarius season is all about gathering our resources and getting to work in order to prepare ourselves for new beginnings.  Although the collective energy of the month is in line with your natural abilities, you are personally being called to go within and get more in tune with the realm of feelings and emotions.  Think of this month as a time to strengthen your intuition and connect to your heart on a much deeper level.  Now is a good time for you to examine your relationships and see if any changes need to be made.  Are you receiving what you need?  Are you open and willing to give?  Do you feel energized or drained by the people you are closest to?  Our relationships are our greatest teachers.  They are a direct reflection of our inner life.  How much we are willing to give to others is a sure sign of how much we are willing to give ourselves.  The same is true of receiving.  Do you feel worthy of love and affection?  Are you willing to receive the love and help that you need?  How often do you engage in acts of self-love?  Spend some time examining your emotional life this month, Capricorn.  Don't rush into things.  Take your time and commit to finding greater balance within.

 

AQUARIUS // Five of Swords

Be careful not to take things too seriously this month, Aquarius.  You may find that you have a heightened awareness of the collective pain and chaos that surrounds us, so it's important that you maintain solid boundaries between what is happening within the collective and what is happening within your personal experience.  Empathy is crucial in times like these, but it's not helpful to take on outside energies to the detriment of oneself.  You are likely to find yourself caught in a whirlwind of fears and mental noise throughout the month.  It's okay!  The key is to not attach to your thoughts.  Remember that you are not your thoughts and that feelings are not facts.  Let them both come and go with as much ease as possible.  Keep coming back to truth.  Use this time of heightened awareness to get curious about your fears.  Be willing to examine the ways in which your fears hold you back.  When we shine a light on our fears we have an incredible opportunity to regain some of the power that we may have lost or given up along our path.  Clear out all the old worries and lies that you can and get closer to your truth this month.  You might be feeling scattered or spread too thin for awhile, but trust in the process.  Get curious about the things you're moving through, and know that this is a passing time.  

 

PISCES // The Hanged Man, reversed

Many of us will be feeling a deep call to action this month, but you are being called to sit still, Pisces.  We are at a collective crossroads, and your individual energy for the month is indicating that you may be facing your own personal crossroads as well.  Now is not the time to make plans or important decisions unless you are very clear and confident about the direction in which you wish to move.  If you are feeling uncertain about the ways in which your life is unfolding at this time, the best thing to do is take a conscious pause.  Wait until the answers become clearer to you.  There is no need to rush this process.  Stand your ground if others make you feel like you need to act before you are ready to do so.  This might be especially difficult to do at a time when everyone else seems to be making moves and pushing forward, but if you don't relax and take the time you need, you are likely to end up taking a few steps backward.  The more you honor this time of uncertainty, the clearer you will be when it's time for you to act.  Do all things with a great deal of thought and sense of purpose this month, Pisces, and you will find yourself on the right path again in no time. 

November Tarotscopes

By Jillann Morlan
Spirit Speak Tarot Deck by Mary Elizabeth Evans

ARIES // Ace of Wands

We close out the month of October with a deeply emotional and spiritually rich new moon in Scorpio on October 30th.  Known as one of the most intense and mysterious signs of the zodiac, Scorpio asks us to dig beneath the surface level of our lives.  When we strip away all artifice and dare to ask ourselves what it is that we truly want and need, we create a clearer channel for our dreams, intuition and creativity to come through.  It’s officially Scorpio season and transformation is the flavor of the month.  In tandem with Mother Nature, we will all be moving through death cycles throughout November.  As the world around us gets darker, we are invited to go within.  Go within to determine what you need to let go of.  Go within for clarity.  Go within for strength.  Release and allow what no longer serves you to come to a natural end.  Endings birth new beginnings and November has great potential to offer you an abundance of fresh insights and inspiration, Aries, especially within the realm of work and creativity.  Work to get clear.  Follow your inspirations.  Keep honing your craft.  Pay attention to opportunities that come your way this month.  Let your intuition be your guide.  Let your passions push you to show up for yourself and be seen by others.  November is sure to be an intense time of transformation and regeneration.  Keep your inner fire lit and watch yourself evolve on a deep soul level.

 

TAURUS // Ten of Pentacles

As the natural world around us moves through a cycle of death in preparation for the winter months, we too are being asked to examine and honor the cycles of our lives.  Tune into November’s naturally transformative energy in order to gain a deeper understanding of your current life circumstances, Taurus.  What changes have occurred in your life this year?  Have you been open to receiving the gift of alchemy?  Take time to honor everything that you have moved through this year, and no matter what obstacles you are currently facing, allow yourself to see the truth – everything is in its right place, and all is working in your favor.  November promises to bring you grounding and abundance.  Even amongst collective discord and strife, your individual roots remain healthy and strong.  Tap into your inherent strength and creativity this month.  Take good care of your body.  Do whatever you need to do in order to feel nourished both within and without.  Self-care plays a crucial role in setting up a solid foundation for self-love.  Be willing to receive love this month, Taurus.  It will certainly be showing up in different ways in multiple areas of your life.  Fall in love with yourself first and then offer your love to others.  There’s no need to be frugal this month.  Trust that you are supported.  Ask the universe for exactly what you need. Believe in abundance and you will undoubtedly receive it in more ways than you ever thought possible.
 

GEMINI // Knight of Pentacles, reversed  

We’re all being asked to dig deep this month, Gemini.  Scorpio season invites us to jump off the high dive straight into the mysterious and sometimes turbulent waters of our emotional and spiritual selves.  What thoughts, feelings and emotions are lurking beneath your superficial self?  Are you willing to take time out and tend to them?  What parts of yourself do you need to hold space for?  You may not be feeling super motivated or inspired this month, Gemini, but that doesn’t mean you are allowed to quit.  In fact, you are advised to keep things moving, but perhaps, you need to change directions.  Where does the bulk of your energy go in a day?  Where can you free up some time for personal reflection?  Your time this month will be best used by keeping your nose to the grindstone with intermittent breaks for relaxation and contemplation.  Slow down and reevaluate if something doesn’t feel right, but keep moving.  Your work needs extra attention this month.  Put in the necessary effort.  Don’t take any shortcuts.  If you feel spread too thin, go within and assess what adjustments need to be made.  November may be an emotionally trying month, but keep your head up and have faith that your efforts are not going unnoticed.  Your efforts matter a great deal right now, so stay as present as possible and trust in the process.  Like all cycles, this one will come to an end.  Stay high and commit to coming out on top.
 

CANCER // Justice

The new moon in Scorpio on October 30th sets an intuitive and transformative tone that will last throughout the month of November.  As a water sign, you are greatly in tune with the ebb and flow of your emotional tides, Cancer.  November asks you to swim even deeper into the murky waters of your emotional and spiritual self.  November will offer you divine guidance and support if you are willing to risk comfort to go on a transformative journey within.  It has been a trying year for all of us.  We have faced our individual heartbreaks and struggles while also being inundated with the violent and chaotic energy that has been circulating within the collective.  Fear has permeated our lives.  Fear has made us question.  Fear has made it nearly impossible for us to feel safe with others, and at times, even with ourselves.  November asks you to get better acquainted with your fears, Cancer.  Get to know your fears so you can call them out when they try to derail you.  Be willing to trust that everything is in perfect place.  Life isn’t always fair, but that isn’t the point.  The point is that you are alive, and that means you still have work to do.  You still have much to learn.  You still have so much to give.  Do what you need to do in order to feel safe and supported this month, and trust that there are greater powers at work in your favor that are beyond your comprehension right now.
 

LEO // The Hermit, reversed

Scorpio season is in full swing and the transformative energy of this sign asks us to investigate the aspects of ourselves that have been hiding in the dark corners of our minds and hearts throughout the year.  Scorpio is an emotional and mysterious sign.  This time of year can be an emotional and mysterious time for all of us.  Go with the flow.  Scorpio is assertive about its need for depth.  Be willing to transcend superficiality in all areas of your life this month, Leo.  Set aside some extra time for rest, relaxation and contemplation.  Your fun-loving, extroverted, attention-seeking qualities won’t serve you this month.  You are advised to spend time alone.  Make an effort to get better acquainted with your intuition.  Get quiet and go within so that you can hear your inner voice more clearly.  This is an ideal time to begin a meditative practice or a solo creative project.  When, where and under what circumstances do you feel most able to connect with your higher self and listen to your inner guides?  Work to create an environment for yourself where you can do your inner work in peace.  Don’t force anything to happen this month.  Take a pause.  Take all the time you need.  Release the need to rush.  Recognize and release any false sense of urgency that creeps up on you.  Stand your ground.  Stay still, get quiet, and let the guidance and wisdom that you seek enter your life without any effort.  For you, November is all about patience and trust.
 

VIRGO // Four of Wands

Take time out to celebrate yourself and your accomplishments this month, Virgo.  Things are bound to be looking up for you in the realm of work and creativity, so make sure you take a moment and acknowledge how far you’ve come.  The universe loves it when we recognize our own worth.  Don’t be afraid to sing your own praises.  If you’re still feeling frustrated or insecure about the work that you do, rest assured that the energy this month is shifting in your favor.  Don’t get caught up in any particular idea of how your life or work should look at this time.  You may not be exactly where you want to be, but trust that you are well on your way.  Trust that the current conditions of your life are perfect.  Whatever you are facing is here for a reason.  Look for the lessons.  Listen for guidance.  The cosmic climate this month is offering you a great deal of support, Virgo, but you are still required to play your part.  Keep working hard and you will be rewarded for your efforts.  Keep things in perspective.  Stay positive.  Don’t get ahead of yourself.  Scorpio season is an ideal time for inner work and getting in greater alignment with your higher self.  Quell the mental noise and create a clearer channel for your intuition to communicate with you.  The plans you have for your life are beautifully unfolding.  Keep up the pace, stay high and know that everything you desire is well within reach.  
 

LIBRA // Seven of Pentacles

You are likely to be reaping the rewards of hard work and perseverance this month, Libra.  Take some time to evaluate what has been working well for you, make any necessary adjustments, and then work to keep the momentum going.  November’s transformative energy requires you to keep moving through any discomfort or resistance that you might be experiencing within or without.  Movement is required for transformation.  Transformation is required for lasting change.  Transformation is radical, but it is a force that will undoubtedly work in your favor if you’re willing to lean in and let go.  Are you ready and willing to invite change into your life?  What does change mean for you?  In what areas of your life do you resist change?  Why?  Ask yourself these questions.  Get some clarity and then get out of your own way.  Nothing is holding you back this month, Libra, except your own limited views about what success is and how you can accomplish it.  Upgrade your thinking and success will show up in your life in ways you never expected.  Commit to finding a balance between work and play that best suits you and your needs so that you can optimize your energy and keep working toward your dreams.  You’re doing great!  Your work is being noticed.  Don’t stop.  Stay true to you.  Transcend the mundane through dedication and hard work.  You are worthy.  Your efforts are important, and the work and creativity that you have to offer is greatly needed at this time.
 

SCORPIO // King of Cups

It’s your season, Scorpio, and the energy of the month is perfectly aligned with your natural strengths and abilities.  As a water sign and one of the most intuitive personalities of the zodiac, you are deeply connected with the realm of emotions.  You have a keen sense of what lurks beneath the surface level of our lives, and you are not afraid to explore uncharted territory.  Now is the time to go on a deep journey to the center of your psyche.  The world around us is getting darker, and we are all being asked to honor the most dimly lit parts of ourselves.  This inner work is less of a request and more of a requirement for you this month, Scorpio.  You won’t suffer any consequences if you shy away from this journey, but you have a great deal to gain if you take time to show up for yourself and answer the call from within.  Your intuitive abilities are naturally strong, but don’t be surprised if you are feeling extra in tune with the thoughts, feelings and emotions of others this month.  You may find that friends, family members or even strangers will feel called to come to you for advice and support this month.  Take pride in your natural healing abilities and offer others what you can.  There is plenty of love to go around, so subscribe to the belief that the more you give the more you will receive and relish in the sweet support November has to offer you.
 

SAGITTARIUS // Six of Cups

You are being asked to open your heart this month, Sagittarius.  Open your heart to greater love, self-worth, creativity, and healing.  Have you been feeling frustrated or overly fatigued lately?  How in tune are you with your inner child?  How often do you play?  How often do you create?  November is a beautiful time for you to align with childlike wonder and joy.  So much of our daily existence can be an energy drain.  How do you bring yourself back to center?  What do you do to have fun?  In what areas of your life can you let expectation fall by the wayside?  Be as light and present as you possibly can be this month, Sagittarius.  You deserve a break.  You need to get back in touch with your wild.  You need to find or create spaces in which you can feel free to just be.  We live in a fear-based culture.  Stress and worry is epidemic, but you have the antidote within you.  Your true essence is infinite love.  You have access to it at all times.  You can give as much of it away as you want and you will still be completely whole.  Remember who you are this month.  Remember what you are made of.  Ask for extra support if you need it.  Don’t be afraid to let go.  Be silly.  Laugh.  Breathe into your heart space when times get tough.  Don’t close yourself off from others.  You have so much to give and even more to receive if you keep your heart cracked wide open.
 

CAPRICORN // King of Wands, reversed

Be careful not to get ahead of yourself this month, Capricorn.  You’re a natural go-getter, but the energy of the month is requesting that you slow down and take it easy.  Take time to figure out what it is that your soul truly craves.  If you have important decisions to make this month, take your time in doing so.  Your first impulses might need some reconfiguring.  Everyone will be subject to greater sensitivity this month, so keep your boundaries clear and be careful not to take on any energy that isn’t authentically yours.  You’re likely to be feeling motivated and creative, but now is not the time for hastiness.  Let any ideas and inspirations that come to you marinate in your mind for some time before letting them see the light of day.  Your inspirations have important messages for you, Capricorn.  Most of the thoughts that we have are just travelers passing through, but you will want to create space and invite the inspirations that show up in your life this month to stay awhile. You must practice patience.  You must find comfort within while you wait for things to unfold.  You will be guided if you are willing to listen.  Create space in your life by cutting out unnecessary mental noise.  Find quiet within and you will manifest it without.  You must be willing and open to perceiving the signs being sent to you before you are fully able to receive them and let them work their magic in your life.
 

AQUARIUS // The Tower

Scorpio season will bring transformation to the forefront of our lives whether we are ready for it or not.  November is all about becoming more aware of the unique cycles we are each moving through.  We can always look to nature to help guide us through the current conditions of our life.  The cyclical death of our natural environment as we enter the winter months is a sure sign that we too have much to evaluate and shed before we reach the end of the year.  What changes have been naturally occurring in your life lately?  What changes need to be made that may require more effort on your part?  What and who needs to make an exit from your life in order for you to be happier, healthier and in greater alignment with your higher self?  These are the questions that need to be asked.  This is the work that needs to be done over and over again.  Transformation is not a destination.  Transformation is a constant unfolding that requires your time and attention.  Transformation doesn’t necessarily require an effort on your part, but it does require surrender and it does need space.  Be extra patient and kind with yourself and others this month, Aquarius.  You are moving through some intense energies and you may be asked to take a few steps back in order to gain the perspective and momentum you need to push through any obstacles that are in the way of your highest potential.  
 

PISCES // Two of Swords

In tandem with our natural environment, we are all moving through cycles of death this month.  We are all being asked to work through some discomfort.  Transformation requires movement.  Transformation is meant to cause upheaval in our lives.  All of the internal motion that is occurring may have you feeling a bit queasy this month, Pisces.  Don’t worry if you find yourself feeling especially ungrounded.  You may not have the clearest vision, so be careful not to jump to conclusions or put too much pressure on yourself and others.  This cycle will be over before you know it, so be as present as you can be with it.  Don’t wish it away.  Don’t fight it.  Be grateful for this time.  Gratitude alone has the power to transform your experience of the greater transformations that are unfolding in your life.  The more you can let go of expectations and outcomes the better.  Take your time and use extra care when communicating with others.  Misunderstandings are apt to occur this month.  Do what you can to lean into any frustration and confusion that you are facing this month.  The tides will soon change.  Don’t overthink it.  November asks you to get in greater alignment with your emotions.  Don’t ignore or brush off any feelings that rise to the surface this month.  Feel it all.  Feel it in order to heal it and you’ll be feeling much clearer, energized and ready to move forward by the end of the month.

October Tarotscopes

By Jillann Morlan
Spirit Speak Tarot Deck by Mary Elizabeth Evans

ARIES // Page of Cups, reversed

Eclipse season is over, Mercury is out of retrograde, and we should all be breathing a sigh of relief.  September was all about radical shifts in energy and letting go of what no longer serves us.  Many of us had to say some hard goodbyes, but with every ending comes a new beginning, and you are being asked to embrace your new beginnings with as much gentleness and childlike wonder as possible, Aries.  Get excited about the new people, opportunities, and creativity that show up in your life this month.  Let it be easy.  Have fun.  Play!  However, remember that all areas of your life still require balance.  It’s Libra season, and we will all be asked to make some adjustments to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual weight that we carry.  Libra is the seeker of balance and harmony, so align yourself with this energy throughout the month and you won’t go wrong.  Make a conscious choice to not get swept up in any extremes.  Be light and say yes when it feels right, but continue to set firm boundaries when the answer is no.  Don’t drop in frequency for others.  Recalibrate whenever you feel called to do so.  Stay open but remain grounded in your truth.  Always come back to your center and October will bring you some much needed whimsy and joy.

GEMINI // Six of Swords, reversed

It’s time to take a breather, Gemini.  September’s cosmic climate was brutal for most of us, and you may still be reeling from all of the ups and downs.  Take the time you need to get grounded and reflect on all that has transpired in the last month before moving forward with your agenda for October.  Take the time you need to honor anyone and anything that has fallen away.  Honor your struggles.  Honor your fears.  Be present and honor the moment you are in now.  It is all that you have.  It is all that we ever truly have.  You may be feeling the shadow period after Mercury retrograde a bit more intensely than others, but trust that it will lift soon.  Trust that on the other side of your trauma is your transformation.  Keep doing your inner work.  Keep talking to the universe.  Keep listening.  Trust that you are being heard.  Even if it feels like you are moving at a snail’s pace, trust that you are moving nonetheless.  Take your time and tap into Libra’s equalizing energy this month to balance out all areas of your life.  Don’t rush this process.  Believe in yourself and know that you are healing.  Use this time wisely and you will find yourself in much greater alignment by the end of the month.

LEO // Ace of Cups, reversed

Good things are on the horizon for you this month, Leo.  Inspiration is on the way, and your cup is sure to be filled, but not before you empty out the remaining contents.  It’s time for a fresh start.  You must release any limiting beliefs you have about yourself before you are able to move onto the next phase of your life and fully step into your power.  Investigate all areas of your life where you feel blocked.  Commit to destroying any walls that stunt your mental, emotional and spiritual growth.  Find beauty in the breakdowns and commit to rebuilding.  Aim big, strive for brilliance, and trust that with a little work it is all within your reach.  Have a larger goal in mind.  Honor your evolution, but don’t be afraid to start small.  Clean out your closet.  Give away what you don’t want or need.  Create space for the new.  Give back the thoughts, feelings, emotions, and fears that you’ve accumulated from others over the years.  Create space for clarity.  Figure out who you really are and what you really want before proceeding.  October is all about resetting and realigning with our authentic selves.  Once you get clear and create space, you’ll be amazed at the multitude of ways in which abundance starts showing up in your life.

LIBRA // Eight of Swords, reversed

It’s your season, Libra!  Now is the perfect time to harness your powers of harmony and balance.  Start within before you go without.  The world needs you and your gifts more than ever, so get grounded in your innate abilities and don’t be afraid to blind others with your inspiring light.  You may still be feeling a little unsettled as we finish up the shadow period after Mercury retrograde and Eclipse season, but rest assured that you will be feeling much more confident as the month goes on.  You’re advised to take your time getting back into the swing of things, but once you feel you have reached a point of equilibrium, go forth and send your magic out into the world.  Your ego may be working behind the scenes trying to keep you small and stuck in a feeling of lack this month.  Commit to heart-centered communication with yourself and others.  Trust your intuition and speak your truth.  You are more worthy and more needed than you may be able to recognize right now.  We all need each other on a deeper level than ever before and you, Libra, are our archetype for intimacy and relationships.  Don’t be afraid to step into the spotlight this month, but only after you tend to your higher self – the most important relationship of all.

SAGITTARIUS // Seven of Pentacles

You’re likely to be seeing some progress in your personal life this month, Sagittarius.  Eclipse season and Mercury retrograde set us all back a bit, but now that things are moving again, you are being encouraged to charge ahead without hesitation.  Libra season will still require you to do some rebalancing, but only minor adjustments will be needed before your energies are fully aligned.  Figure out what those adjustments are and make them as soon as you can in order to capitalize on the abundant energy surrounding you this month.  Success is certainly within reach, but your main challenge will be deciding where to place your focus.  You may be feeling on top of your game, but be careful not to become overconfident and spread yourself too thin.  Where will your energy be best served this month?  Libra season brings us the gift of greater clarity and intimacy in our relationships.  Have you been thinking about a creative project or collaboration, but failed to act on it?  Now would be a good time to instigate connections with others.  Or, perhaps, you’ve been meaning to start a solo project, but haven’t felt inspired or supported by the universe.  In truth, you are always supported, but you may be more able to see and feel it this month.  Tap into your magic.  Connect with others, collaborate with your higher self, and you will surely succeed.

AQUARIUS // The Empress

Give thanks and praise this month, Aquarius.  We made it through the chaos of Eclipse season and Mercury retrograde, and if you did your personal work, you will now be feeling significantly lighter, freer and truly transformed. October will provide you with a much needed break from fear and uncertainty, and you are likely to feel at much greater ease with yourself and in the world this month. Lean into this time. Relish in the change of season. Deeply tune into your body and luxuriate in your senses. You don't have to do anything. The only real assignment for you this month is to let go and let the universe serve you. If you have been giving a lot of your time and energy to others, take a step back. It's time for you to receive! The more open you are, the more beauty and abundance will be able to come into your life. Many of us are being asked to make active choices and change this month to get in better balance with the universe, and ourselves but you are simply being asked to relax and be in the moment. Your only work is whatever is in front of you in any given moment. Pay attention to potential creative pursuits and romantic partnerships that show up this month. Nothing is off limits for you, and there will certainly be magic in the air.

TAURUS // Seven of Wands

Now is not the time to give up or give in, Taurus.  We’re coming out of an intense cosmic moment with the end of Eclipse season and Mercury retrograde.  Don’t let the lingering shadow period of this time get you down.  You are making moves, so keep moving!  Even if it doesn’t feel like it, trust that things are happening and that the universe has your back.  Harness the creative energy that is sure to be bubbling up around you, but be careful not to overexert yourself.  Believe in yourself and your pursuits, but be careful not to become overconfident.  Press on, but go slowly if need be.  Assess the situation, make a plan, go with the flow and adjust accordingly.  Libra season is all about balance, and all signs of the Zodiac are being asked to take this into account throughout the month of October.  Some of us will be called to take a pause before moving forward in order to reach equilibrium, but you, Taurus, are being given the green light to move forward with confidence and assurance that you have everything you need to come out on top this month.  Go at your own pace.  Don’t let anyone or anything hold you back.  Even the smallest spark can become a blaze of fire.  Don’t be afraid to light up the night sky.

 CANCER // Death, reversed

September's transformative cosmic climate incited death cycles in all of us. We were forced to face what could no longer be ignored. We were asked to truly let go of anything and anyone that wasn't serving us, both individually and collectively. Some of us answered the call, and some of us did not. Some of us are doing the work required for true transformation, and some of us are stuck in our old ways of being in the world. No matter where you currently find yourself, you are being asked to press on and fully commit to your transformation this month, Cancer.  Take a hard and fast look at your life as it is in the present moment, compare it to where you want to be, and do whatever you can to bridge that gap. You must feel it all to heal it all. You won't be able to ignore the things that you need to change this month. Don't fight it. Don’t be afraid to lean into any frustration, anger and confusion that you are currently facing.  Don’t be afraid of change. Your evolution is inevitable.  Something must give.  Investigate. Face all parts of yourself in order to get in tune with your higher self.  Know that even in death there is movement. Keep moving and October will be a potent time of transformation and rebirth for you.

VIRGO // The Moon

We’re all being asked to examine our lives and make some much needed adjustments this month.  Eclipse season and Mercury retrograde illuminated our subconscious fears and inconsistencies.  Under such a spotlight we can no longer find peace in the dark.  Sleepwalking through our lives is not an option anymore. We must wake up.  Although we will all be granted the gift of clarity in some way or another this month, you may feel it on a much smaller scale, Virgo.  Have faith.  Even if you can’t quite see where you are going yet trust that you are on the path.  This is not the time for analyzing or making plans.  Your innate analytical powers won’t help you out this month.  It’s time to quell the mental chatter and be still. Investigate your dreams.  Indulge your senses.  Above all else, spend October getting in touch with your intuition.  Get quiet.  Listen to your inner voice and pay attention to the synchronicities that are popping up in your life.  Suspend your disbelief.  The signs are real and they are trying to communicate with you.  Your ability to perceive the messages the universe is sending you directly relates to your willingness to receive them.  Be willing to not have the answers.  Be willing to receive them from another plane.

SCORPIO // Five of Cups

October will challenge you to see things in a different light, Scorpio.  The truth is that the world is full of turmoil, negativity and violence.  There is always someone or something to blame for our frustrations and fears.  This month you must ask yourself where you consistently put your focus.  Have your perceptions been holding you back?  Are you an optimist or a pessimist?  Could you benefit from a change of heart or mind?  Watch your thoughts.  Be aware of your feelings.  Are they always yours and yours alone?  Do you ever take on the thoughts and feelings of those around you?  If you feel triggered by a person or situation, stop before reacting and investigate why.  This work is worthy of your attention.  Be willing to transform the way you interact with your own thoughts, feelings and emotions.  We can’t always control our circumstances, but we can always control our reactions to them.  Don’t take yourself so seriously.  Be willing to relax.  Be willing to see another way.  You always have the power of choice, so be vigilant about your choices this month and know that you always have the power to turn it around even if you feel completely stuck.  Keep moving.  Shake things up, and you’ll be feeling in much greater balance by the end of the month.

CAPRICORN // Queen of Cups, reversed

Libra is the archetype of intimacy and relationships, and during Libra season we will all feel a greater push to examine how we commune with others and ourselves. What is the current state of your relationships, Capricorn?  Who can you always call on for support?  Who is an energy drain?  Who inspires you?  Who intimidates you?  How do you see yourself in relationship with others?  What role do you play? Do you take on multiple roles?  How is your relationship with yourself? Are you happy? What is your relationship to the Earth?  What is your relationship to the Divine?  Do you feel supported?  Where do you feel a lack?  What changes need to be made?  You are being invited to ask yourself these questions, Capricorn, and if you do, you are sure to receive the answers you need.  This isn’t easy work.  When we take a long hard look at our relationships we inevitably take a long hard look at ourselves, and we won’t always like what we find.  Don’t be afraid to do your personal work.  If you don’t like what you find, have compassion for yourself and others.  Make changes, but be kind and always treat others how you want to be treated.  This month has the potential to be truly transformative for you if you’re willing to put in the work required.

PISCES // The Chariot, reversed

The aftermath of September's cosmic climate with Eclipse season and Mercury retrograde still has many of us feeling scattered and confused. A great deal was exposed for us individually as well as collectively, and at times it's difficult to know exactly how to move forward. Don't be afraid to feel all your feelings, Pisces. Don't be afraid to take a break. You may want to run from all of the discomfort, but make sure there is clarity and purpose in all of your movements. If you're feeling particularly fearful, know that feelings change, often times much sooner than we expect them to. Don't flee from any dis-ease you may be working through. Stay present in the moment and work to understand why you feel the way that you do. Your feelings are valid and worthy of investigation, but don't let them run your life. Keep coming back to your body for grounding and support.  Seek out the people, places and spaces that make you feel safe. Take note of the people, places and spaces that make you feel anxious and detached from your body. Weed out the ones that consistently make you question yourself and your relationship to your body.  Trust that no matter where you are or what situation you are currently facing, you are always rooted and at home in truth and love.

September Tarotscopes

Spirit Speak Tarot Deck by Mary Elizabeth Evans

ARIES // Page of Wands

Sparks are sure to be flying all around you this month, Aries.  Sparks of passion, sparks of creativity, sparks of anger, sparks of anxiety, sparks of clarity - no matter the source, things are sure to be heating up for you both internally and externally.  Although there will be lots of inspiration and fuel for your projects, as well as, passion for your personal life, be wary of where you put your energy and how you use your time.  All the creativity and passion in the world won't get you anywhere unless you have the clarity, drive and patience to funnel your energy toward a higher purpose and clear-cut goal.  Don’t force anything to happen, and don’t let yourself get too distracted this month. Tune into your superpowers and get to work, but don’t burn yourself out on people, projects or opportunities that may not be what they seem.  Trust your gut. Take a step back and really assess for yourself what you want and what you don’t.  With Mercury in retrograde and Eclipse season upon us, things are going to be moving a little slower for everyone this month.  Even if it feels like go time, go slow.  Let the inspiration come in.  Let there be an easy flow and exchange of ideas.  Get rid of anything that isn’t working. Get excited, but hold off on solidifying big plans and commitments until the end of the month. 

TAURUS // Two of Cups

On a macrocosmic level, September is asking us to get grounded and go slow.  September is asking us to find a deeper connection with the Earth, our bodies, and to reevaluate the different people and places that we call home.  These requests will prove to be an easier task for some than others, but it very well may prove to be the easiest for you, Taurus.  The realm of the body, sensuality and earthly pleasures is where you thrive, so lean into the slow-moving energy of the month and use it to find a nourishing and sustaining balance that will carry you into the next.  Get really rooted in your truest desires, higher self and soul purpose this month, and watch as others flock to you for guidance and support.  This is bound to be a very successful month for you in the realm of relationships. Lean on others and let others lean on you. You are being given the opportunity to really step into an equal exchange of energy with those closest to you this month.  You have the ability to approach all situations and relationships with a composed and strong center.  What needs to be communicated?  What needs to be worked through?  How can you help create a better balance for everyone?  Don’t be afraid to take the lead and be the light that guides others home to themselves.

GEMINI // Ace of Pentacles

The New Moon Solar Eclipse on the first of the month beckons in a time of great transition and transformation.  There will be a lot of energy moving around and through us, both individually and collectively.  There will be abrupt endings and expansive beginnings happening simultaneously.  Be aware of the projects, opportunities and relationships in your life that are coming to an end, Gemini.  Be aware of the energy that will be freed up as a result of these closures.  Free up as much energy as you can, and create space in your life for the new because it will be coming into your life with full force this month.  Endings can be difficult, but yours are being fully supported by the universe this month to help you get more aligned with your soul purpose and onto the next phase of your evolution.  Be particularly cognizant of career opportunities and creative endeavors coming your way.  You have every reason to be optimistic!  There has been a lot of discomfort within the collective this year. We are all being asked to work through our fears in different ways at different times.  This is your time, Gemini.  All of the breakdowns have been leading you to this breakthrough.  The cosmic climate is still requesting that we all go a bit slower than we might like, but if you feel called to do something new this month, don’t let any fear hold you back – go for it! 

CANCER // High Priestess

With the intense and ever-changing energies that are swirling all around us this month, you are bound to feel particularly ungrounded, Cancer.  A very complex creature indeed, and arguably the most intense sign of the Zodiac, you are sure to be feeling a bit extreme.  Do what you can to let the ebb and flow of your emotional tides transpire with as much ease as possible.  If you find yourself feeling particularly down or stuck, get moving.  Go for a walk, ride a bike, or do some gentle stretching.  Come back to the body whenever you can.  Don’t get caught up in or attach to other people’s emotions. When the outside world gets too loud, go within. Carve out time to hang out with your higher self. Get to know your soul. Listen to your intuition.  You have an acute ability to sense the unseen. Spend September honing your intuitive abilities.  If you get a gut feeling about something or someone, trust it.  September is asking you to go it alone for a bit.  Go it alone so you can get to know yourself better.  Get to know yourself better so you can be unwavering when questions about your abilities, creativity, and worth arise from others, or even from yourself. Get clear on what you know. Own it.  Stay true to yourself and don’t be afraid to be a lone wolf for a while.  Times are changing and your true tribe is on the way.

LEO // Six of Wands

It may be Virgo season now, but you’re likely to still be basking in the after-glow of your own time in the sun, Leo.  Keep riding the wave of self-love, success and fulfillment as long as you can.  Even though the cosmic climate is slowing things down for all signs across the Zodiac, you’re likely to be experiencing some positive outcomes for the work you put in prior to Eclipse season and Mercury going retrograde.  If things are aligning for you in unexpected ways this month, don’t be afraid to capitalize on your success.  You have a lot to be excited about, and a lot to be thankful for, but make sure your celebrations aren’t premature or excessive.  Things will be shifting rapidly after the Solar Eclipse on the first, so make sure you keep your options open and don’t burn any bridges.  Right now we are all being called to see how much we need each other on a much grander scale. Be the born leader that you are, Leo.  Show up for others.  Show them how it’s done. Don’t be greedy. Let others share in your success.  We all need a little more encouragement and hope right now. This is a great time for strengthening bonds, making new connections and inciting new collaborations.  Link up with others and start a crusade if you feel called to do so.  The world needs your fiery energy and indomitable spirit more than ever!

VIRGO // Ace of Swords, reversed

This may be your season, Virgo, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be free from scrutiny.  Be careful not to get caught up in all the mental noise this month.  Learn how to differentiate between your intuition and your ego. Work to turn down the volume on your ego. What do you truly want? What is truly in your highest and best? We are all apt to be hearing a lot of different things for ourselves this month, and it will undoubtedly, be difficult to discern the truth from the lies at times.  This is why you must do our inner work.  You must work to hear your intuition above the cacophony of voices vying for your attention. Stay vigilant.  Don’t take anything at face value. Use your natural intelligence and keen analytical abilities to garner the truth from all situations. Get in touch with your senses. Take a break from the mental plane and explore your sensuality.  Stop thinking about what life could be like; go out and live it. Let yourself connect with others.  Connect with your Earth element.  You will especially want to connect with your body this month.  Listen to the things your body has to say.  You might find that it has a lot more to say than you thought.  Be willing to approach things from a new perspective, and you’ll be able to move through the complicated energies of this month with much greater ease.

LIBRA // Ten of Swords, reversed

It’s been a rough year for all of us, but your gentle, kind and peace-loving soul has had to bear the brunt of our collective dis-ease, Libra.  You might be feeling especially down and out this month with Mercury in retrograde, but things are not nearly as bad as they seem. In fact, the New Moon Solar Eclipse on the first is bringing you beautiful and soft winds of change.  If things haven’t been going well for you, they will soon be shifting and you will be able to see a light in the distance.  The worst very well may be behind you, but that doesn’t mean you can charge ahead with haste. Pare down your social calendar this month and carve out some much needed time for yourself.  Take a long look at where you’ve been and everything you’ve done.  Honor all that has transpired before setting intentions for the future. What has fallen away? What remains? What still needs to be mourned?  What can you rejoice in? You might not be able to change your circumstances, but you always have the power to change your mind. Be optimistic! Work to find a better balance in the mental realm this month. Avoid extremes. Choose to rise above and tune into your higher mind.  The universe has your back this month, and always. Trust in the support you are receiving and believe in the future.

SCORPIO // Justice

You are being asked to really take stock of your past this month, Scorpio.  Before you can be fully present and take on the shifting and transformative energies of the month, you need to take a moment to honor your past – the good, the bad, and everything in between.  Atone, forgive, and most importantly, let go.  Bring the bigger picture back into focus and get yourself and your priorities back in balance.

All of us are being asked to slow down this month, but you, Scorpio, are being asked to make a full stop.  Commit to clearing the air.  Suspend your disbelief.  Could it all have happened for a reason? You don’t have to commit to finding a reason, but believe there is one and then let it go.  Give all your worries and fears to the Earth.  Write all of your regrets on a piece of paper and bury it in the ground or light it on fire.  Trust in the power of alchemy.  Nothing ever stays the same.  You are evolving no matter how you feel about your current circumstances.  Justice will always be served when the time is right.  Don’t wait around.  Keep living your life.  Keep looking ahead.  Have faith in the cycles you are going through and don’t worry about anyone else’s.  If you find yourself lost or stuck, go back to the Golden Rule: Treat others how you want to be treated.  It never fails, and neither will you.

SAGITTARIUS // Four of Swords

September is asking all of us to take a step back and assess where we’ve been before moving forward.  We are all being asked to do this in different ways.  For some of us this will be an outward and active endeavor, and for some of us it will be a more receptive and solitary one.  It may be surprising, but you fall into the second category, Sagittarius.  You are being asked to get quiet.  You are being asked to go against your natural impulses and withdraw from your usual routine for a while.  Cancel plans.  Stay in.  You won’t be able to hear the inner guidance you are receiving if someone or something else is vying for your attention.  As the bonafide extrovert of the Zodiac, September’s slow pace may make you feel a bit stir crazy, but do what you can to go with the flow.  Things will speed up again soon enough.  You have been given this cosmic climate for a reason, so use it to your advantage.  Now is the perfect time for you to prepare for the next chapter of your life.  Take time out to set a solid foundation before you move ahead.  How are you fairing these days?  What’s working well for you?  What needs to be changed?  If you don’t think there’s any work to be done, quiet your mind and just listen.  Be open to receiving guidance from the universe and you’ll be surprised at what comes through.  

CAPRICORN // Two of Swords, reversed

You’re being called to find a better balance in your relationships this month, Capricorn.  We are all in great need of each other right now, but you are especially in need of the people in your inner circle this month.  We are moving through some intense energies and a lot of unknown territory, so figure out who you can reach out to for support and don’t be afraid to ask for it.  If your relationships have been feeling a bit off balance lately, trust that they will be reaching equilibrium soon.  However, you will have to assess for yourself who is serving you and your higher purpose and who is draining your energy and bringing you down before things balance out.  Don’t be afraid to let some people go.  Trust yourself and follow through.  Release everyone else’s opinion and expectations.  You know what’s best for you. When we let go of anyone or anything that doesn’t serve us, we create space for something new and better to step into our lives.  The more you can let go, the more greatness you can call in.  You already have so much greatness in you, Capricorn; call in more of it! September is all about creating the space we need to invite in more love, light and magic into our lives.  Find a better balance, let go, create space, open up, and believe that there’s no limit to what you can receive.   

AQUARIUS // Nine of Pentacles

Things are looking quite good for you this month, Aquarius!  You have many good omens coming your way, but don’t get ahead of yourself.  You still have to slow down with the rest of us and show up to do the work that the cosmic climate is requiring of the collective.  As the visionary of the Zodiac, you are great at coming up with innovative ideas and planning for a better future.  Let this Mercury retrograde period gift you with the time and mental space to work on your future plans.  Take all the time you need.  Think about yourself.  Think about the collective.  Think about your role within the collective. Work your magic. You may be feeling more self-assured throughout the month, and abundance will certainly be coming your way, but don’t lose sight of the bigger picture.  You may be flying high now, but what about next month?  Make sure you don’t get too caught up in your own world.  Tap into your natural abilities, but don’t get trapped in the mental realm.  Don’t isolate yourself.  Stay connected with your people.  Reach out to others who you know might be in need of a little more help.  You never know when you’ll be in a position of need again yourself.  Use all the positivity and good fortune that you are receiving this month as inspiration to step up and serve others.  Keep giving and you will keep receiving, tenfold. 

PISCES // Strength, reversed

You are being called to tap into your inner reserves of strength this month, Pisces.  These are trying times, and it’s often difficult to see oneself clearly.  You are so much stronger than you think you are.  Go on a journey, both within and outside of yourself, this month.  Find the strength that you need to get you through this challenging time.  It is never as bad as it seems.  You have the ability to overcome any obstacle that is placed on your path.  What do you need to do in order to believe it?  What do you need to do in order to feel strong?  Where do you need to go?  Who do you need to be with?  If you’re at a loss, look to the past.  When were you strong?  What were the circumstances that birthed your strength?  Don’t be afraid to go back to that place and bring the wisdom of the past to the present moment.  This month is all about taking a few steps back in order to move forward with greater faith and purpose.  We all have to go back a bit, but you are being dually reminded that everything you need to enter this next phase of your life is already within you.  Take the time you need this month to activate your dormant hopes, dreams, and ambitions.  They are closer than you know and you have all the strength and support you need to achieve them.
