Welcome to this week’s Tarotscopes. I’m using the black and white Daughters of the Moon for this week. It was out of print for a long time, but there’s a link at the bottom if you want to order one for yourself. Yes, it’s back! (Been back for a while apparently. 😀 )
How are you doing? Mercury is going retrograde tomorrow per the Farmer’s Almanac. Some folks don’t get bothered by it. I’m one of those that do. If you are too, you might try to focus on anything that needs “re” in your life. Like re-organizing the pantry, or re-pairing things that are torn or re-writing your current work in progress. Re-visit old friends. Re-do your to-do list. And for heaven’s sake, RE-lax.
Want a hand navigating this retrograde? I’m here to help. As always my goal is to help you find your joy and hang on to it. You can transform your existence by bringing joy back in on a regular basis. I’m here to be your joy guide.

When this card shows up, you know [/inlinetweet]things need to be kicked in the rump. The Phoenix rises up from the ashes, but first it must destroy itself.

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]She awakens. She destroys. She redefines this life. Are you ready for [/inlinetweet]the Tower this week? Tear down old ways of thinking. Destroy self-doubt. Redefine who you are by understanding what you are not. Let this week shake you awake as Kali Ma marches through your psyche. Be open to creative chaos and beloved destruction. (KALI THE AWAKENER aka THE TOWER)
ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Ever made a dump cake? Well, this week your life is going to [/inlinetweet]resemble one. Dump it all in. Heat it up. But the results are so delicious. Don’t worry about the start of the week. Things will get dumped on you but you have the energy to change it. You will be the moderator and the one who redirects the energy into constructive channels. (TEMPERANCE)
TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Where will your dreams take you? Get ready for some head games from the [/inlinetweet]person in your mirror. You may not see things as clearly but you will be able to feel your way through to the truth. Be cautious when dealing with others. They may be trying to deflect you from the real issue. Your job this week is to intuit what they really need and want. They may not even know. (THE MOON)
GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Tricksy, tricksy, Trixie. What must you do to get your own attention? [/inlinetweet]Coyotewoman is an added Major in this deck. Her energy is all about playing necessary pranks. By that I mean she has to fool people to get them to change their ways. What are you being called to change? Watch out for tricks you play on yourself this week. You could be your own worst friend or your own best enemy. (Coyotewoman the Trickster)
CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Messages come in unique ways this week. It would behoove you to [/inlinetweet]PAY ATTENTION. This won’t be repeated.

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Magic happens. All the time. BUT! Magic happens more when you [/inlinetweet]get involved in the living of your life. Creative solutions to existing problems can be found. Good week to learn how to use the mundane in arcane ways. Magic happens when you look at a knife and see a screwdriver. Pay attention to the solutions because they aren’t your average, run-of-the-mill answers. You should expect to surprise yourself. (THE WITCH aka THE MAGICIAN)
VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]New beginnings are on your path. Turn down the unknown road. Choose the dream [/inlinetweet]that calls to you the softest. This week brings opportunities for risky business.

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Dance a bit more. Develop a playful mindset even where your finances [/inlinetweet]are concerned.

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]There is a strength in knowing yourself. Good week to take a course [/inlinetweet]in you. Mirror gazing is recommended as long as you understand this is to see behind your own masks. Stop hiding from your emotional self, Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Step up to the plate. Time to swing for the fences in your emotional [/inlinetweet]relationships. Pour it all out this week. The ones who are worth it will remain. The others will wash away in your honest outpouring. This isn’t about them. It’s about you. Nurture your emotional self, Sagittarius. Give kudos to those who have remained. Bless those who go but don’t dwell on them. They are gone to create space for those about to enter. (NAMMU MOTHER OF CUPS)
CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]Work must be done, but don’t neglect what’s important. Your biggest lesson this week is [/inlinetweet]reminding yourself that you can nurture yourself as well as your family. The universe sees all the effort you put forth. Rewards are coming your way. Accept them. Can you accept that being kind to yourself may be the most important thing you do all week? Other’s confidence in you will grow as they see the work you are doing. (GREAT CORN MOTHER MOTHER OF PENTACLES)
