Sharks, Joy & J. Campbell

Sharks, Joy & Joseph Campbell: what do they have in common?

Gaian Tarot Three of Air
Gaian Tarot

Today I live in joy.

I was following sharks on Twitter (no really…see @MaryLeeShark and @Shark_Katherine) when I saw this quote.

Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy. – Joseph Campbell

It spoke beautifully to my own thoughts on this. Sorrow happens. Pain happens. I cannot control those things in my world.

I can control my reaction to it.

I can cry but still seek joy.
I can live with pain but still seek joy.

Is it a Pollyanna mentality? I’ve discussed that before (way back in 2011 in fact). What do you think?

What does it mean to you to live in joy?

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.

Tarotscopes for March 22-28, 2015

Gaian Tarot Guardian of Air
Gaian Tarot

Welcome to this week’s Tarotscopes. 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.

[Tweet “Joy in fifteen minutes? I didn’t think it was possible.”]

Tired of being sad? Done with all the negativity in this world? Let’s work together to bring you back to the joy path. No time like the present to get started on your own joy seeker’s life. I’m ready to help. Are you ready to recalibrate your joy? It only takes fifteen minutes.

Wow! This book is causing quite the stir in the Tarot world. I do recommend checking it out.

Did you know you can hear your full monthly Tarotscope here? Get your month started right with an in-depth joy journey. If you were subscribed on iTunes, they won’t carry my podcast any more. Sorry!

CARD OF THE WEEK: TWO OF FIRE [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Get ready for sparks to fly. Passions run high this week. It’s in [/inlinetweet] a good way as long as you remember to not let yourself be triggered. Remember that you don’t have to accept all the invitations you get–especially the ones to pity parties, drama fests and arguments.

AQUARIUS FOUR OF AIR [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]What’s in your nest? What are you keeping close to the [/inlinetweet]chest right now? Shhh, it’s okay to keep a secret. Nurture your ideas just a little longer. Don’t sing too loudly this week. Let things have time to percolate, to mature. Your ideas are good ones. Just don’t tell the world just yet.

PISCES TEN OF WATER [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Cycles exist to remind you that life is [/inlinetweet] moving. That you are breathing. Open up to the idea that you only go backwards if you are facing the wrong direction. Every movement that brings you towards joy is the right one. Understand that you have a right to be happy. Then be that. You know. Happy.

ARIES EXPLORER OF FIRE [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Who needs to see you more than that person looking at you [/inlinetweet]from within your mirror? Open up your heart, precious. Sing your passionate song to yourself then to the world. Blessing the world with your presence isn’t egotistical. It’s a necessary goodness. Get yourself out of that rut but moving and grooving. Even chair dancing counts.

TAURUS FIVE OF EARTH [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Careful around the house, please. Things may be less [/inlinetweet]sturdy than you like. Budget for home repairs that you aren’t expecting. And do take some time out for yourself, okay? This is a good week to build a blanket fort. But resist that urge. You are going to have to be front and center for inspection this week.

GEMINI ELDER OF FIRE [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]She’s tough. She’s intense. She’s ready to take you to the [/inlinetweet]mat if you don’t pay attention. This is the ruler of the suit of wands. Her passion is to squeeze your passion out if you won’t do it yourself. Trust me on this. Don’t test her. Please let your passion flag fly this week.

CANCER THE SEEKER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Time to make that leap of faith you’ve been hearing [/inlinetweet]about. You have a calling that needs to be answered. Whether it’s a new venue, a new view or a new way of thinking, it’s time to get that done. The valley only looks far away because you haven’t picked up your feet to get there. Nothing is getting closer until you start moving towards it.

LEO FIVE OF FIRE [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Careful this week. Your temper could trick you into saying what needs [/inlinetweet]to be said but may hurt to hear. If you are ready to excise those people, say what you think. If you want to do it more gracefully, I suggest you count to one hundred a couple of times before letting that anger go. Targeted release is great. Words of mass destruction? Not so much.

VIRGO GUARDIAN OF WATER [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Who rules your heart? Are you open to letting those in who need [/inlinetweet]letting in? What’s got you so guarded these days? Maybe you need to have a heart-to-heart with yourself? Letting others in is scary, but in the long run, it’s the best thing for you. Open up to love, my dear. Be on the lookout for declarations of same.

LIBRA NINE OF AIR [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Sometimes letting go of the known in favor of the unknown is [/inlinetweet]the thing that releases you from your fear. Worrying about what hasn’t happened is like trying to stop a waterfall with a cottonball. Trust in the Universe to see you through. You waste so much energy feeding your anxiety when you could be just letting go and living.

SCORPIO GUARDIAN OF AIR [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]When the message is clear, you shouldn’t keep asking [/inlinetweet]what you need to do. The Universe doesn’t like repeating itself if you know what I mean. Messages come to you from singing bowls and croaking frogs. You simply have to get the wax out of your ears and pay attention.

SAGITTARIUS SEVEN OF WATER [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Daydreamer, listen up. You’ve been hiding from reality by believing [/inlinetweet]in dreams you know won’t come true. You must move on if you are ever to move up. The next level waits for you but you are stubbornly clinging to old beliefs. Commit to the hard choice of living in reality. Stop lying to yourself and wake up to the beauty of your real world.

CAPRICORN The Tree [inlinetweet prefix=”Capricorn ” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]Becoming one with your environment isn’t easy but it may be the [/inlinetweet]thing that saves you from losing your mind (and your temper.) Sacrifice the attitudes that aren’t serving you. Let your ego take a back seat so you can just get what needs to be done done. Grit your teeth to get through this week.

Remember to seek joy, y’all. Pass it on! I want to hear from you if you are ready to kick the negativity habit in the tender bits. Let’s get started today to create a plan for you that takes you from feeling alone to feeling alive.

Gaian Tarot Elder of Air
Gaian Tarot

Welcome to this week’s Tarotscopes. 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.

[Tweet “Got my weekly AND my monthly ‘scope free from @TarotByArwen. What’s yours say?”]

Take some time listen to your free in-depth monthly tarotscope. Please share them/pin them etc. Let me know what you thought of your sign for this month!

I finally got The Deck of 1000 Spreads: Your Tarot Toolkit for Creating the Perfect Spread for Any Situation. I’m so pleased with it. I wish I’d gotten it sooner!

Are you ready to spring into March? Ready to own your own joy? Let’s get going! I’m on your side.

CARD OF THE WEEK: GUARDIAN OF WATER [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]What needs diving into? What requires [/inlinetweet]your whole heart–not just a part of you? This week you need to identify who and what needs your compassion, your love the most. Then release the full power of your awesomeness.

AQUARIUS SIX OF EARTH [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Generosity comes in many forms but the key thing to remember is [/inlinetweet]to be generous with yourself. Don’t hold back on self-praise, on positive self-talk. And don’t dismiss it when it comes from others in your world. Honey, it’s a bit rude to tell people they are wrong about you. Hold your head up and smile when someone tells you that you rock. You do, you know. You rock.

PISCES LIGHTNING [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Oh shit? Well only if you aren’t prepared for it when it happens. This is[/inlinetweet] about you understanding that Tower moments come to everyone. Just stay aware of your surroundings. Don’t go into dark alleys. Be smart. And pay attention to those brilliant flashes of insight that are bound to happen this week. That’s what I see more of. Brilliant Ah ha! moments for you.

ARIES ACE OF AIR [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Butterflies take time, sugar. They don’t just pop out of the caterpillar’s [/inlinetweet]rear, you know. Caterpillar, cocoon, primordial soup, then butterfly. Keep paying your dues and flexing those wings. Your time to fly is coming. Belief in yourself is the strongest drug you can take. And you can’t OD on belief!

TAURUS LOVERS[inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] You need this, don’t you? Just someone to hold your hand and tell you[/inlinetweet] that you’ve got this. You are the strongest of strong this week because love will see you through everything. Hold on to those who are always there for you, Taurus. And ask for help when you need it. Your friends are psychic…or are they? But they know you well enough to only offer when you ask. So ask.

GEMINI THREE OF EARTH [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Time to gather up the besties. Make a date to get together to talk about[/inlinetweet] all those things you love. Friends make you stronger. Create space in your world for them. You need them as much as they need you. Stop saying you need to call and just call.

CANCER TEN OF EARTH [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Return to the starting point. Look around you. Realize that this isn’t[/inlinetweet] where you started. It’s changed because you’ve changed. Revisit past haunts to see which ones just need paint and which ones need to be let go of. Someone may leave you this week but honor their journey as they would honor yours.

LEO TEN OF WATER [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”] Did you know you can reuse, recycle, repurpose nearly anything including [/inlinetweet]emotional responses? You don’t have to have the same response. You can show growth. You can be the bigger person. By examining your own cycles, you can key into how to navigate just about anything that comes your way with grace and style. Just like you do, Leo. Just like you do.

VIRGO FIVE OF EARTH [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Time to focus on money and budget. Things may seem a little shaky if you[/inlinetweet] haven’t been cautious with your funds. And I see a distinct need to hunker down. Stormy times, darling? Feel free to build a blanket fort in the living room. Just don’t forget to invite your loved ones in with you. This isn’t about you doing everything alone. Reach out to those around you. Say help. Accept the yes

LIBRA EXPLORER OF WATER[inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Sometimes you just gotta go all in. Holding back causes more [/inlinetweet]damage than just falling off the cliff. Who excites you? Who do you want to explore just a bit more? What places are calling you? Go forth and roam, darling Librans. This is a great week for you to follow your heart. You don’t have to commit just yet. Keep your options open.

SCORPIO NINE OF FIRE [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] OM mani padme ommmmm Repeat it as needed because this week is going to [/inlinetweet]try your last good nerve. Please schedule down time now. If you can, get an extra hour of sleep by going to bed a half hour early and getting up a half hour later. Okay so maybe just the half hour early? Do not wear yourself out. Calm and meditation will take you through this somewhat riotous week.

SAGITTARIUS EIGHT OF WATER [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Oh precious heart! What are you still holding on to? Or is that[/inlinetweet] who? Time to move away from the safety of the shore. You must move out into the deep water. Absolve yourself of those imaginary sins. Was it really all your fault? No, I didn’t think so. Take a class. Teach a lesson. Go be you. Time to leave that old skeleton behind.

CAPRICORN THE PRIESTESS [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN ” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”] Secrets come to you. You don’t ever go out of your way to get the[/inlinetweet] dirt. People just naturally want to tell you their stuff. It’s okay to be less available this week. You may need to make room in your life for you! It’s a great week to take yourself out on a “getting to know you” date. When’s the last time you did some self-care that didn’t involve doing something for someone else?

Remember to seek joy, y’all. Pass it on! I want to hear from you if you are ready to kick the negativity habit in the tender bits. Let’s get started today to create a plan for you that takes you from feeling alone to feeling alive.

Tarotscopes for January 18-24, 2015

Welcome to this week’s Tarotscopes. I hope you enjoy them.

Tired of being sad? Done with all the negativity in this world? Let’s work together to bring you back to the joy path.

Gaian Tarot Explorer EarthWelcome to this week’s Tarotscopes. I hope you enjoy them.

Tired of being sad? Done with all the negativity in this world? Let’s work together to bring you back to the joy path. No time like the present to get started on your own joy seeker’s life. I’m ready to help. Are you ready to start?

Want to test the waters with a three card email reading? Just buy Leonie’s workbook from this link. Let me know you got it (digital or print, it doesn’t matter) by contacting me. I’ll set up your free three card email reading.

There’s still time to check in on your monthly Tarotscopes too.

CARD OF THE WEEK: CHILD OF WATER [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]This is a good week to open[/inlinetweet] your heart up. Engage in childlike activities: crayons, skipping rope, loving all you meet. Be open to love this week to find the most joy.

AQUARIUS NINE OF WATER [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Something big is coming. Check in with your[/inlinetweet] heart’s desires. What are you doing to actively create that energy in your world? It’s coming. Are you ready?

PISCES FIVE OF WATER [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Stop waiting for someone else to fulfill you. You’ve got[/inlinetweet] two hands and a working heart, right? Make your own needs important. Stop moping and start creating.

ARIES FOUR OF AIR What ideas are percolating? Mental prospects need nurturing. Writing them down is good, but go a step further. Create actionable steps to follow through.

TAURUS THE CHARIOT[inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Where do you need to push more? What requires[/inlinetweet] a firmer hand on the rein? Have you allowed yourself to be run over? Time to step up to the wheel Who’s really in charge?

GEMINI EXPLORER OF EARTH [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Stubbornness may win the day this week. Determine[/inlinetweet] your best course of action then stick to it. Learning your community’s strengths and weaknesses could be the way to go.

CANCER FIVE OF AIR [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Competition rarely thrills a crab, but this could be[/inlinetweet] the week to show them what you can do. Pick your teammates carefully. The loudest aren’t always the best.

LEO THE MOON [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Emotional cycles may seem overwhelming. Don’t let[/inlinetweet] past downers ruin current good times. Someone from the past may make an unwelcome appearance.

VIRGO FIVE OF FIRE [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Okay, honey. There are weeks when you can let things[/inlinetweet] go. This isn’t one of them. Just control your temper as best you can but definitely let them know your feelings.

LIBRA THE TEACHER[inlinetweet prefix=”Libra” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Turn to your mentors for guidance. Your reconnection[/inlinetweet] with your own spiritual path leads you to success. Don’t lose sight of your personal boundaries but you can push them a bit more.

SCORPIO ACE OF EARTH [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Great week to start a business. Get a [/inlinetweet]plan together. Not enough money? Start a savings budget. Stick to it. This is slow, but steady growth for you if you work the magic.

SAGITTARIUS BINDWEED [inlinetweet prefix=”Sagittarius” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Stop giving into the baser things. You’ve been putting[/inlinetweet] body before mind again. Don’t overdo the physical. By balancing the spiritual, you will make greater gains in what you want.

CAPRICORN SIX OF FIRE [inlinetweet prefix=”Capricorn ” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]Passion rules but you may not have time for it. Find time to [/inlinetweet]dance, laugh, sing. Celebrate all the wins–especially the small ones. Definitely engage with others to share the kudos coming your way.

Remember to seek joy, y’all. Pass it on!

Tarotscopes for January 11-17, 2015

Also, I’m challenging everyone to commit a seditious act. If you are in, just share this post to advise everyone of your intentions.

Commit seditious acts of love today.Welcome to this week’s Tarotscopes. Due to my not being consistent with my TarotCopes wording, I’m just going back to Tarotscopes. LOL

Have you listened to your monthly Tarotscopes yet? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this new format. Feel free to drop me a line. Just click CONTACT over there on the right.

Did you know I’m doing three card email readings for anyone who buys this workbook using this link? It’s true! It’s my annual “buy this amazing workbook” push. I wouldn’t push it if I didn’t believe in it. DISCLOSURE: Yes, I get money if you buy the workbook.

Also, I’m challenging everyone to commit a seditious act. If you are in, just share this post to advise everyone of your intentions. Seditious is such an inflammatory word, isn’t it? In my monthly tarotscopes podcast, I told one sign that was their goal this month. [inlinetweet prefix=”Arwens wants ” tweeter=”tarotbyarwen” suffix=”#seekjoy”]To commit seditious acts.[/inlinetweet]

Seditious means inciting or causing people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch. I think our world is blowing up right now. I want to create an explosion of love instead. So, are you in? Just share this post! Let’s make some noise, y’all.

You can now tweet your individual Tarotscope by clicking on your sign below. Have fun!

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]CARD OF THE WEEK GUARDIAN OF AIR Whisper your desires? Heck no![/inlinetweet] Shout them out so all can hear. Convincing yourself is the hard part.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]AQUARIUS SIX OF AIR Join with others for a common goal. You will go[/inlinetweet] much further that way. Turn to the light with an open heart. Share love.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]PISCES FIVE OF AIR Many want to be where you are. Let them[/inlinetweet] have your spot. You can just climb higher. Best not to fuss too much. Just fly.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]ARIES ACE OF FIRE Stop waiting. Sparks today create[/inlinetweet] bonfires. Get those creative ideas moving forward. Don’t let them die in the shell, please.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]TAURUS THE CANOE This is about you. This is about running[/inlinetweet] your own life. Mastery of self is the key. Don’t let others impede your progress. MOVE!

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]GEMINI EMPEROR Project managers see the big as well as the small. Don’t[/inlinetweet] miss either this week. Rule your world. Set your boundaries.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]CANCER SEVEN OF WATER Oh it’s all so dreamy, isn’t it? So many[/inlinetweet] choices. Honey, pick one. Run with it. You can come back to the others.CHOOSE.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]LEO SEVEN OF FIRE Multitasking must happen. Read a book while[/inlinetweet] weeding the garden. Learn a language while walking that mile. It’s all available.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]VIRGO MOON Emotional self needs tending. Cycles[/inlinetweet] happen. Own them by understanding them. Subconscious self speaks very loudly this week.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]LIBRA ELDER OF EARTH Financial goodies coming your way. Set[/inlinetweet] up budgets. Celebrate your gains. Positive outlook brings positive income.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]SCORPIO FIVE OF WATER Expect a slower week. Maybe even[/inlinetweet] some sorrow. Just remember you fill yourself up. Don’t let others let you down.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]SAGITTARIUS CHILD OF FIRE Encourage your playful self. Try[/inlinetweet] out new things. Rekindle passion for life. Play play play MORE. Kick life in the ass.

[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”tarotscopes” suffix=”… #tarot”]CAPRICORN THE TEACHER Lessons aren’t always easy, but perhaps[/inlinetweet] this time, you might write them down? Easier to avoid them next time. Hang in there.

Thanks for joining me this week. Remember if you already got your Leonie workbook through my link, let me know. You get a free three card email reading. Ends January 31, 2015, y’all.

Purpose of Life? It’s Simple

Make things happen. You have the tools you need. Gather up your will and do things.

Today’s thought is brought to us by one of my clients who asked, “What is the purpose of being here? What’s the end game?”

We had just had a rather mundane session about work, relationships and the like. I was quite taken aback by the question. This is a regular client of mine so I felt like I knew what to expect from our Tarot conversation.

The Universe gave me a wake up call. We pulled the Magician as the answer to the question.

[Tweet “Make things happen. You have the tools you need. Gather up your will and do things.”]

That was the message we both received. The purpose of being here? To get things done by using the tools we have.

Seems pretty simple, but is it? There’s a book I love by Mike Dooley aka TUT. It’s about manifesting change. Do you have this one? What do you think of it if you do own it?

Also, I’d like to know what are your thoughts about this answer to the question of “what is the purpose of being here?”

Ready to map out your road trip to joy for 2015? I am too! If you want to kickstart 2015 the right way, let’s get going. Limited openings, y’all!

Today’s affirmation:
I will. I am. I have. I am willing to have all the goodness I deserve. I am willing to have all the joy life brings. I am willing to be open to the beauty that surrounds me. I have. I am. I will.

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on!

CARD OF THE WEEK: NINE OF EARTH Time to make a list. Not at to-do, but a “ta-done”! Review your accomplishments. Pat yourself on the back. It all counts!

AQUARIUS LIGHTNING Expect something to get toppled but don’t worry. Making room for better things sometimes requires knocking walls down.

PISCES THREE OF FIRE Anticipation. Waiting. To heck with that! Make your own music. Write your own song. Create the energy you crave right now.

ARIES FIVE OF EARTH Sheltering yourself may feel like the safest choice but don’t deny yourself the comfort of family/friends. Reach out.

TAURUS BINDWEED If you are feeling trapped, check who said yes when they should’ve said no. Time to cut the ties that bind. Money isn’t king.

GEMINI EXPLORER OF WATER Get moving. Boat trips are favored. Cruise time? Let your heart lead this week. Follow deepest desires into joy. Go for it.

CANCER SEVEN OF WATER Dreams are great but isn’t it time you dove into one wholeheartedly? You waste time dithering about which one to choose.

LEO PAGE OF WATER Don’t be surprised if love shows up. Check the mirror first. Love for self must shine back at you. Then love from others!

VIRGO THREE OF CUPS Time to let your hair down, honey. No party to go to? Throw one! Let joy be your guiding call. Bake a plateful of joy!

LIBRA TWO OF FIRE Sometimes the one who winds you up the most, inspires you the most. Don’t let energy go to waste. Get passionate now!

SCORPIO TWO OF AIR Who are you listening to the most? What is their track record? Choose a better coach, darling. Information from left field!

SAGITTARIUS STRENGTH Something causes you to have to dig down deep but don’t worry. You’ve got this. Your strength comes from knowing right from wrong.

CAPRICORN SUN Celebrate you. Reaching out to family counts. You must let yourself shine so they can see how to follow your awesomeness.

Welcome to this week’s TarotCopes, y’all. I hope last week brought you joys large and small. Remember that one of the secrets to being a professional joy seeker is to actively identify all the joys–the smallest ones can add up!

P.S. I won NaNoWriMo 2014. My secret weapon here.

Please take a moment to do this survey (below this week’s Tarotscopes). I will draw one name to win a full year’s subscription to my 2015 Monthly TarotCopes podcast.

Now for this week’s TarotCopes! And don’t miss the survey at the bottom. You could win a full year’s subscription to my 2015 TarotCopes Monthly podcast.

CARD OF THE WEEK: SIX OF WATER Hold your hand out to a friend. Walk down memory lane a bit. Experience joy through nostalgia.

AQUARIUS THREE OF AIR Writing it out helps. Letting it out on paper, then sending it up in smoke releases you from the pain. Let it out, darling.

PISCES TEN OF FIRE Sometimes you have to let go of everything in order to gain anything. Time to burn away the unnecessary. Stop feeling obligated!

ARIES FIVE OF AIR Join with others to create a voice that can be heard. Competition serves to strengthen you this week. Stand up for what’s right.

TAURUS EIGHT OF AIR Listen then speak. Best to allow others time to vent. You don’t own their anger. Listen, filter. Your best role this wk.

GEMINI SEVEN OF FIRE What’s hot? What’s not? Work with your passion. Handcrafted gifts are great but start this week. Carpe Diem, baby!

CANCER CANOE Whether you like it or not, you must take the lead this week. Marshall your forces then lead the charge. Time to get moving.

LEO ACE OF WATER Emotional risks are scary because you know what pain feels like. Luckily you also know what love feels like. It’s worth the risk.

VIRGO HIGH PRIESTESS The question holds the answer. Seek on an intuitive level. Dive deeply into self to find the truth that was already there.

LIBRA GUARDIAN OF FIRE Sometimes you have to feed your own passion to help the fire grow. Stop tossing logs at it. Use kindling please.

SCORPIO THE TREE Time to slow your roll, precious. Give yourself a time out so you can refill your batteries. Sacrifice your need to fix others.

SAGITTARIUS THE HERMIT Feel the need to reinvent yourself? Go back to old journals. Remember old goals. Now change them to fit you now.

CAPRICORN TEN OF WATER Happy home week. Revisit why you love where you are. Reconnect to your emotional roots. Reestablish family boundaries.

And thanks so much for sharing this on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, G+, Tumblr, Tso and Ello. I appreciate it.
