CARD OF THE WEEK: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What if everything you did came back to you? How would you [/inlinetweet]change what you do, say, think? This week is a really good week to consider the energy you put out into the world. It is reflecting back to you. Are you working to change for the good or are you working in a different energy channel? There are so many to choose from. The Universe urges us to choose well this week. What we put out, comes back. Seek joy, y’all. LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT From the Cosmic Deck of Initiation by Barbara DeLong (U.S. Games)

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]How much are you taking on this week? Can you [/inlinetweet]write yourself a note that just says “Delegating is a good thing”? Refocus your efforts on streamlining your life. Decluttering isn’t just for closets, darlings. Work to make your life easier. The leader who never rests is a poor leader. Allow yourself to step back so someone else can step up. It will make things so much calmer in your world. TEN OF AIR

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Who teaches whom? Open your heart up to all the [/inlinetweet]infinite possibilities of how you learn and how you teach. Set the best example for your self. Don’t worry about how others see you. It’s far more important to worry about how you see yourself. Your job isn’t to judge, critique, instruct anyone other than yourself. Live your best life. Navel gazing is highly recommended this week. TEACHER
Gaian Tarot Explorer of EarthARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]How can you best connect with your community? Feeling a little [/inlinetweet]bit outside of everything? This is a good week to explore your community connections. Even picking up the phone is a good thing. You may find yourself taking a short trip to see loved ones. This will be a good thing in the long run. Make sure you are focused on the ties that bind with love. EXPLORER OF EARTH Bonus: Check out the book by the model for the Explorer of Earth

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Who needs a helping hand? Remember that the secret to charity [/inlinetweet]is to receive as easily as you give. You lessen the gift when you feel guilty. Receive and send with the same amount of love. It will grow exponentially when you back your ego out of it. The giver is blessing themselves when they give to you. You do the same when you give. Allow the flow to grow. SIX OF EARTH

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What are your successes so far? Take time to write them [/inlinetweet]down. Revisit your goals. Celebrate the ones you’ve met. Reset your sights on those you still find important. The spiritual being who understands that yesterday’s goals may not be tomorrow’s desires–wins. You will go further remaining flexible while still focusing on your changing horizon. No one does it better than you, Gemini. NINE OF EARTH

child-waterCANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What emotional needs are you ignoring? This isn’t about [/inlinetweet]someone else, compassionate Crab. This is about you and your needs. You fulfilling your own needs. You depending on your own heart to take care of you. You you you. It really is all about you this week. Take yourself out for dinner. Have a tea party with you. Make your needs the focal point of the week to have your best week. CHILD OF WATER

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #horoscope”]What needs to be examined? Time to pull out that old [/inlinetweet]science kit. Get a microscopic look into your own thoughts. Channel them into analytical lines of thought. This is your week to make all the lists you want. I know, right? YAY! Be childlike as you examine things. Break them down into bite-size chunks. Investigate every rabbit hole to your heart’s content. It’s an “in your head” week for you. CHILD OF AIR

guardian-airVIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]If you could ask your future self one question, what would it be? [/inlinetweet]Great week to meditate on where you want to be in 2,5,10 years. Set down some achievable steps. What the heck. Write down some that seem as easy as walking on the moon without air. With your brain power, Virgo, you might just be the one to solve all the problems of the world. Dream big. See what your future guru self has to say. GUARDIAN OF AIR

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Who sets your boundaries for you? If the answer [/inlinetweet]is anyone other than yourself, STOP. If you set up boundaries based on input from anyone other than your precious soul self, why? Who better than you to make decisions about your life? Who better than you to create the life you want to have. It’s okay to get input from loved ones, but don’t make decisions that make your stomach twist up into knots. Do the right thing for you. GUARDIAN OF EARTH

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What’s tying you down? Why do you let [/inlinetweet]old fears and old voices dictate your beautiful existence? Time to rise up. Cast off those chains of guilt, doubt, fear. Step away from being told how to love, who to love, what to love. Make your break for spiritual freedom by letting go of outdated desires. You love the world hard. Don’t stay trapped by the demon of regret. Live, darlings. BINDWEED

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What do you want to learn this week? Curiosity[/inlinetweet] is your super power, Archers. Find a new craft. Rekindle an old one. Dive into projects that encourage your creative child to play. Finger paint to your heart’s content. This is a week to splash color all over your world. Make something fun. Let that child out and stop holding yourself back from doing fun things. PLAY. CHILD OF FIRE

8-strengthCAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #horoscope”]What makes you feel strong? Don’t worry about [/inlinetweet]what is SUPPOSED to make you feel strong. Explore what actually makes you feel strong. Is it your ability to dive into deep wells to help others out? Is it your innate knowledge of who can help whom? Maybe it’s your compassionate inner warrior who fights battles for those who can’t. This is your week to be strong, Cappies. STRENGTH

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.

July 5-11, 2015 Tarotscopes

Art Through The Starstream 39 Redwood Deva
Art Through The Starstream

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 serving of my Tarotscopes by @Tarotscopes. What did yours say?”]

Did you know I can help you find joy in fifteen minutes? I’m ready to help. Let’s get started.

Here’s a book that’s really been helping me be more mindful. I recommend it if you are looking for something that will give you bite-sized, practical steps on how to build a habit of mindfulness into your daily life.

Did you know you can hear your full monthly Tarotscope here? Get your month started right with an in-depth joy journey.

CARD OF THE WEEK: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]The Redwood Deva brings us this week’s overarching message of learning [/inlinetweet]to see the obvious. This is our invitation to “enter the silence and listen”. Such an odd concept, yes? Move into silence and listen, but to what? We tend to lead such noisy, busy lives that we miss the messages available when we sit in the quiet. So this week, carve out some time to sit in silence. I know, it may be hard to find that stillness, but even in a non-stop, gogogo world, we can find it if we look hard enough. Find the silence. Listen to the quiet. REDWOOD DEVA

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]If you knew you could, what would you do? Your question comes to us from [/inlinetweet]the heart surfer, the Explorer of Water. Cowabunga, dude. When you follow your heart fearlessly, amazing things will surface. This can also be about time on the water so it’s a good thing if you can get out to enjoy your local bodies of water. Remember to throw your heart over the fence, then let the rest of you follow it. Good things coming your way. EXPLORER OF WATER

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Where are you going? Are you able to just take off to explore your own [/inlinetweet]inner landscape? The Seven of Air challenges your thinking in a good way. You are being asked to look at the world through a clear marble. See how else you can achieve the goals you have. You may have over-planned your journey. If you don’t leave room for error and for change, you may miss the entire reason for the trip. Ease up on that critical self-thinking, sweetheart. SEVEN OF AIR

Gaian Tarot Guardian of Water
Gaian Tarot

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What is ready to harvest? What projects do you need to give more time? Once you [/inlinetweet] can answer those two questions, you can eliminate some of the dithering going on. It’s good to be compassionate, but overwatering is just as bad as underwatering. You must determine where in your life you are being too cautious in the name of caring. It may be time for tough love. Only when you yank the weeds, can the other plants grow. Don’t kill everything in your garden because you are afraid to boot some weeds to the curb. GUARDIAN OF EARTH

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Are you ready to win? Ready to celebrate that victory? Good news, this week may [/inlinetweet]be the time. When you put your self into your work, you will win. Stop worry about what others are doing or not doing. You can’t control them. They are not in your hula hoop. So stop being so crazy about them. You waste your time and energy on worthless people and causes. Focus on what you know, what you do, what you control. Get back in your own hula hoop, bulls. This week will bring you the victory you hope for if you can just let go of the need to control others. SIX OF FIRE

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]If you could buy one thing for yourself, what would it be? This is a good week to be [/inlinetweet]a little self-indulgent, Gemini. Don’t get caught up in the “if I do this for you, what will you do for me” cycle, though. That ties strings from you to them and back again that are not healthy. This isn’t quid pro quo time. It’s quid pro YOU time. It doesn’t have to be a Lexus, but maybe that book you’ve been wanting? I’m just saying that you might want to give into that desire so you don’t binge out. You know…a little goes a long way. SIX OF EARTH

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What friends are you missing right now? How about being the one who reaches out to [/inlinetweet]reconnect. Some ties can stretch across oceans but you still need to hold your hand out to them. Just make those connections know how much they mean to you. Nostalgic talks over coffee or the phone are going to be your bread and butter this week. Good times with good friends are a done deal as long as you reach out to let them know how much they still mean to you. SIX OF WATER

Gaian Tarot Bindweed
Gaian Tarot

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #horoscope”]Who’s the party animal now? Time for you to show off your socializing skills. Make those [/inlinetweet]naysayers shut up by showing them how to throw a real shindig. The three otters in this card show you going to parties, throwing parties, heck, just being the party wherever you are. There are those in your world who think you might do better being quiet, being small, but that’s not your forte`, is it? You are the leader of the pack this week so get out there and shake your tail feathers. Show them what it means to be a Leo. THREE OF WATER

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What is holding you back? Or more accurately, who? This week’s card tells me the culprit is [/inlinetweet]you. You are allowing things to tie you in place. You have a need, an itch, a desire to do something, but all the little birds in your life who are telling you do this, do that are making it hard for you to hear your own wisdom. Review the card of the week to learn your lesson about silence. And stop making your life about acquiring things. Remember to connct with the people in your life or they may feel you don’t want to connect with them. BINDWEED

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Are you skimming your own emotional surface? How scary is it to just [/inlinetweet]dive in? To submerge yourself in the emotional connections that bind you to others? You are being challenged, Libra. Challenged to dive into to meet your compassionate self. To hug your inner wise one. This is a week where you will do best when you forge deeper connections with those already in your life. Time to tell them a few secrets. They may have a few of their own. If you can show them how to live compassionately, you will be giving them the best gift of all. GUARDIAN OF WATER

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What is your heart’s desire? If you could just open your arms, sing your dream, what would [/inlinetweet]that look like? Take a minute. Get quiet with yourself. Ask your Higher Power what dream can come true. Then make it happen. Do whatever it takes to create that reality for yourself. Heart’s desire is a big, big thing so make sure you are open to the inevitability of getting what you want this week. You lead a charmed life for the next seven days. Make the most of it, Scorpions. Don’t waste this energy NINE OF WATER
Gaian_9Cups003

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What must you accomplish this week? I’ll bet your to-do list is longer than [/inlinetweet]a well-fed anaconda. Just remember that you are an excellent multitasker and a terrific delegator. Your delegation skills will help you more than you think when you bring others of a like mind in on one of your bigger schemes. You just have to show them where the fire is and hand them the hammers. Together you will forge something that will last. This is about you leading others towards a single purpose. Use that fire. SEVEN OF FIRE

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #horoscope”]How will you find your sacred space? Are you prepared to throw down [/inlinetweet]the boundaries this week? You need to focus on home and hearth because there may be someone knocking at your doors who doesn’t understand no. Plant your self. Let them understand where your lines are. Don’t allow them to cross those lines without full knowledge of what you need and want. Your space is sacred. Don’t let just any damn fool in, please. And celebrate your family this week. They are where you are safest. FOUR OF FIRE

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. Check out what others have to say about working with me.

Regardless of the topic, everything that she covered was a confirmation of the direction that I was already being led, even in areas that I have never discussed with anyone, including Arwen. For those who may think it’s easy to make up an answer to a question asked, please know that I did not verbally ask my questions to Arwen. I held them in my mind, and each time the insight was on point.

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 “Stop by to see what your horoscope for the week says. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.”]

Ready to get back on track to your joy-filled life? Want to ditch the negativity that’s been seeping in? Got fifteen minutes? Not sure? See what others are saying. “For those who may think it’s easy to make up an answer to a question asked, please know that I did not verbally ask my questions to Arwen.”

You know I love books, right? Here’s one that blew me away. Rachel Pollack takes personal experience then combines it with her years of Tarot knowledge to apply practical magic to every card in the deck. Honestly, this is one of my keepers in my Tarot collection. See for yourself.

Did you know you can hear your full monthly Tarotscope here? Check out June to see if I was right. July will be up on the first. Subscribe to my newsletter to be reminded. Get a free book too.

CARD OF THE WEEK: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What will you choose this week? Our card for the week is the [/inlinetweet]Two of Spirals. Here a wren has two nests to choose from. The choice is not clear as both look identical from the top. But if our little feathered friend will just looks a bit closer, he or she will see that one next doesn’t have the support the other does. It makes me realize that sometimes I choose based on “what the hell” rather than actually giving both options my undivided attention. Choose wisely this week, darlings. Seek joy, y’all.

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]How foolish are you? How much do you dare to show when you feel [/inlinetweet]insecure but know you must move forward? I have a friend who showed up in shorts at a party. She had AMAZING legs but said she never wore shorts. She was surprised, I think, at the support she got from all of us. She felt foolish but wanted to show off a new tattoo. What can you do this week that makes you feel just a bit vulnerable but could gain you amazing rewards? Put yourself out there, Aquarians. Take the risk to reap the gains. It will be worth it. MERLIN THE HERO (FOOL)

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Can you truly let go of what needs to be relinquished? How tight do you[/inlinetweet] hold on to things that just don’t work for you any more? And people? What and who must be let go of now so that you can make that necessary transition? You are being offered a thread to follow into your own labyrinthine soul. Follow it where it leads. This journey must be made if you are going to ever move up to the next level. You do want to move up, right? ARIADNE DEATH

Chrysalis Tarot 7 Spirals
Chrysalis Tarot

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Where must you wander? What roads call you the most? This is a [/inlinetweet]great time for you to sing your own songs. Choose your truths and let them be the stones in your mouth that prevent you from lying to yourself. You are being called to rule with compassion. Reward those who are loyal to you. Eschew those who aren’t. By standing up for what you know to be right, you will make that name for yourself. You remember, right? That acknowledgement from your community of your own amazing success? THE MINISTREL KING OF STONES

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Have you heard that clarion call? The one that says to stand up [/inlinetweet]for your self? That says you won’t be recognized unless you firmly, gently, relentlessly put yourself forward? That’s not easy at the best of times for you Bulls, but it’s got to be at the top of your weekly to-do list. I’d recommend putting it in at number 3, 5, 7 and 9 too. Just don’t back down easily. You don’t have to make it a battle royale, but you do have to let them know you won’t budge on this. SEVEN OF SPIRALS

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What needs balancing in your world? Your card this week insists [/inlinetweet]that you seek, find and own your own sense of justice. Things aren’t balancing out so you must create equality in your life. Ma’at is the Goddess of the scales. Don’t put all your weight on one side. Walk that middle tightrope. Scary? Sure, but it’s the best path for you this week. Justice will prevail as long as you stay centered. MA’AT JUSTICE

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]So you are being asked about the concept of sacrifice, Crabs. what [/inlinetweet]does that word mean to you? To me it is about what I must give up in order to get what I want. Here we see a sword piercing five scrolls. Does this mean none of them were the right choice? Or were they all possible right but another was chosen and these set aside? Examine your current situation. Ask yourself what you really want out of life. Then ask yourself what you must sacrifice in order to achieve that particular goal. FIVE OF SCROLLS

Chrysalis Tarot 5 Scrolls
Chrysalis Tarot

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #horoscope”]What must you let out, Leos? What is filling you up so much that you are [/inlinetweet]nearly drowning in? This emotional response needs to be releases do you can begin to heal that area. Look in your mirror. Look into your own eyes. Forgive yourself first. The key word for you this week is emote. Let your emotions free. You can do it in the safety of your own home but make a date with the person in the mirror. Feelings must be let out. ACE OF MIRRORS

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Who isn’t giving you what you need? Look to your family and friends. Ask [/inlinetweet]yourself if you give as much as they give and vice versa. Don’t let excuses stand betwee you and them. Open up. Tell them what you need. Explore how to rebuild those relationships. Give yourself permission to gently release those who aren’t holding up their end of the friendship bargain. Make gates more than fences. NINE OF STONES

Chrysalis Tarot 3 Mirrors
Chrysalis Tarot

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]How kind are you to yourself? That’s the biggest [/inlinetweet]question for you right now. If you speak of yourself and to yourself in demeaning ways, I would ask you why? Do you think it builds yourself up to tear you down? You are so compassionate with others, Libra. Turn that kindness on yourself. Make yourself as important as you make others. Build yourself up. Then you are even stronger when you take on the immense task of helping the world. THREE OF MIRRORS

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What are you going to create this week? If you had [/inlinetweet]infinite resources, what is the first thing you would start? Why are you letting anything hold you back from that? Your gift to the world is intensity. You have a passion that can not, and should not, be dimmed. Stop holding yourself back. Live like there is no tomorrow. Throw yourself into your creative passions. Show the world your beauty and strength. Create for those who can’t or won’t. Burn it up, Scorpio. THE ARTISTE QUEEN OF STONES

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Why do you let rejection hurt so much? Aren’t you [/inlinetweet]aware that it is their loss, not yours? Pick your head up. Shake yourself off. Turn away from the attachment to the past. You can’t move forward if you’ve tied a rock to your own tail. Cut that burden. Let go of that ridiculous need to wallow in self-pity. You are so much greater than that loss. You are worth so much more than that. Live. THREE OF SCROLLS

Chrysalis Tarot 3 Scrolls
Chrysalis Tarot

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #horoscope”]What do you need in order to make your life come true? It looks like [/inlinetweet]what you really need this week is some time to yourself. Immerse yourself in your natural world. Blend in to the trees and bushes. Hide your soul in water. Taking time for your own peace of mind will bring you some amazing results this week. Your project will all be the better for it. Release your need to do for others. Do for you this week. THREE OF SPIRALS

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 June 14-20, 2015

Fantastical Creatures Tarot The Star
Fantastical Creatures 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 “#Seekjoy, y’all! Read your weekly Tarotscopes. Check out some decks Arwen recommends. Thanks for retweeting.”]

I had so much fun yesterday at the Yellow Rose RWA chapter meeting. They invited me to come speak to them about using Tarot for writing. I was blown away by the creative approaches they took with this tool for their writing. We had NYT bestselling authors there as well as pre-published. Everyone came away with new insights on their characters and stories. I wanted to share with you some of the decks we used (and discussed).

  1. Fantastical Creatures Tarot
  2. Omegaland Tarot Deck
  3. Tarot of the Old Path
  4. Chrysalis Tarot
  5. Art Through The Starstream (and her other deck Art Through The Eyes Of The Soul)
  6. Oracle of Visions

One of the things I love to do is read the Hero’s Journey for characters. Cai and I do it a lot for our books. We are in the process of re-releasing some we have gotten rights back to. First though, we want to go through them to see where we can beef things up a bit. If you have a book in progress or in your heart, I’d love to work with you too!

Did you know you can hear your full monthly Tarotscopes here? We are mid-way through June. Listen to your in-depth joy journey here.

CARD OF THE WEEK: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]We get a lovely message for this week, y’all. Set your goals high because [/inlinetweet]the Star is guiding the way. All you need to do is believe in your self as you reach for the heavens. So many gifts await this week. Make sure you are staying open to the positive possibilities of life. THE STAR

Fantastical Creatures Tarot The Wheel Of Fortune
Fantastical Creatures Tarot

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What would you do if you knew you were being blessed by the Universe? If you knew, without [/inlinetweet]a doubt that the thing you want most right now was already yours? The Wheel of Fortune is spinning, Aquarius. It’s spinning for you. The catch, and there’s always a catch, is that you must stretch out for what you want. This is not time to hunker down in your comfort zone. Tap your inner strength. Screw on your courage. Turn up your faith. Then step out into the scary zone to get that prize. WHEEL OF FORTUNE

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What is the one thing you must do to keep passion red-hot in your world? [/inlinetweet] This week you must do that thing that lights you up, sets you on fire, turns you on. Get ready to blaze a little, Fishies. Expect tools to be delivered and problems solved when you step into your “get ‘er done” self. Sometimes hard to rev the fish up, but when you do, it’s more like Jaws than Flipper. People may be surprised by your fiery activity but that’s okay. This isn’t about them. It’s about your passion. PAGE OF WANDS

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What happens when what you want comes but it isn’t what you [/inlinetweet]really wanted? So your sign got 2 cards this week. Unusual, but let’s just say that the big event you are waiting on may not bring the expected results. Looks like you’ve been working towards one thing but the Universe may yank that out from under you to deliver something else. Don’t worry too much. The rewards may not be what you were hoping for, but the opportunity for growth will be huge. Hang in there this week. And definitely keep working towards the future no matter which rugs get yanked! THREE OF WANDS and THE TOWER

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Are you looking for some heart time? Partnership is [/inlinetweet]emphasized this week. Good times with people you love are happening. You get to bask in adoration. And you deserve it. Seek the wilder things in life this week if you want to jazz up your romantic life. Even single Bulls can do something that connects them with others. Don’t be shocked when someone unexpected tells you they have a little crush on you. Up to you if you want that crush to grow or not. The ball is definitely in your court this week, Taurus. THE LOVERS

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Who teaches you the most about compassion? This week look for [/inlinetweet]lessons in how to love more while remaining true to yourself. Too often we try to morph into what someone else wants. This week you will need to be strong. Stay true to yourself, Twin. Diving deeper into yourself is recommended. Something tells me that the person who needs the most compassion in your life is that face you see in the mirror. Seek out where you are not being kind to yourself. We all do better with honey over vinegar. QUEEN OF CUPS

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What must you lose this week? Looks like it’s more about [/inlinetweet]emotional connections than anything else. Ask yourself who isn’t upholding their end of the relationship. Cut ties where you need to and shore up the ones where you are dropping that connecting ball. Please be gentle in all that you do. Now isn’t the week for the crabby Crab to attack. Put those pincers away, dears. Just take some quiet time to do some emotional exploration in your current relationships. You aren’t in this world to carry the world on your back. Promise. FIVE OF CUPS

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #horoscope”]Who is really on your side? Take care when you interact with others. Some may be [/inlinetweet]looking to make you a victim. Too bad we all know you are a survivor regardless of what life throws your way. Get tough. Get flexible. Move away from those who would stab you in the back. Dance on a different floor. Their opinions of you don’t matter. Make this week about your strong, gorgeous self. Show the world what it looks like to walk away from conflict and idiocy. Please do not engage this week. The mass destruction of self won’t be worth it. TEN OF SWORDS

Fantastical Creatures Tarot Ten of Swords
Fantastical Creatures Tarot

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What do you really want the most in your current emotional relationship? Do you [/inlinetweet]have the courage to look them in the eye and tell them? Your needs seem to be getting overlooked a bit, Virgo. Typically that’s because you are always putting others first. Pick one of your dreams. Make that your priority this week. Your partners and friends will understand. Your quiet strength will get you through anything that comes this week. But your dream? Yeah, let’s make that a number one on your to-do list, okay? SEVEN OF CUPS

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What are you trying to decide? This is going to be a week of [/inlinetweet]choices. Remind yourself that each choice you make isn’t about what you let go. It’s about what you choose. Make your choices strong and bold this week. If it’s the wrong choice, it isn’t the end of the world. You’ve got a lot going on right now so it’s time to prioritize your actions. Stop wasting time, please. When you don’t take action, you do more than just nothing. You stagnate your own growth. Nobody wants that, right? CHOOSE! TWO OF WANDS

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Who brings you joy? Good week to reach out to [/inlinetweet]them to incorporate more happy in your life. Are you really going to go through another week without seeking joy for yourself? Time to loosen up just a bit, please. You’ve been uber focused on something (and it’s good that you are). But this week calls you to indulge in some me-time with a special someone. Even single Scorpios can find a good friend to let their hair down with. Just loosen your tie. Take off that girdle of responsibility. Play a bit, please. You’ll be all the better for it. TWO OF CUPS

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What would you do if you knew you were going to succeed? If an angel whispered [/inlinetweet]in your ear that they had your back? Success is your theme this week, Archer. Let your warrior heart guide your decisions. Battles lost are only stepping stones to bigger wins. Remember that. Write that down. All the no’s you hear are preparing you for a better yes. The marathon runner doesn’t win by quitting at mile 25, right? Keep on keeping on. Your card this week says victory comes to the last one standing. Let it be you. SIX OF WANDS

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #horoscope”]If money weren’t an issue, where would you go? What would[/inlinetweet] you do? Whose life would you change? That’s a series of questions you want to explore this week. And stop being so jealous of resources, please. You are over-focused on what others have. Your personal hoard won’t grow if you are always up in other people’s lives. Your treasures are the ones you have. Stop desiring what others have. Stolen treasure hurts, but it’s not worth it to let that be your worry. Seriously, let it go and focus on what you have. Grow that. FOUR OF COINS

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. I’m only an email away.

Tarotscopes June 7-13, 2015

Gaian Tarot
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 “Time to read the weekly JoySeeker horoscopes from Arwen. Have you checked yours out?”]

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. What’s holding you back?

This week I had an amazing day where I read for a group of people who were mature. They explored issues like following their dreams, reaching out to grab life and live it. Then that same night I read for a group of high school graduates. They explored issues like following their dreams, reaching out to grab life and live it. Don’t lose your joy, y’all. Grab life and live it. No time like the present.

Found two great cookbooks this week as well as revisited an old favorite. Sheet Pan Dinners covers an interesting way to cook using less pots and pans. Then, if you are like me, this cookbook on how to use everything you get from your CSA or Farmers Market will help you waste less. Or you can find out what home cooking looks like if you are from cotton country. Got a great cookbook recommendation? Hit me up in the comments.

Have you checked out my podcast? It’s a more robust version that covers your full month. Get your month started right with an in-depth joy journey.

CARD OF THE WEEK: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Time to speak up. Time to let your voice be heard. Are you [/inlinetweet]ready to let them really see you when you speak? This week’s card is Parrot from Lisa Hunt’s brilliant Winged Enchantment oracle deck. Parrot likes to be seen and heard so our message this week is to communicate. And don’t hide your spectacular self, either. This is no time to try to face into the background. Be loud. Be proud. PARROT

Winged Enchantment Oracle Deck by Lisa Hunt, 25 Parrot
Winged Enchantment

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What can’t you do? That’s the thing you must answer this week. More importantly [/inlinetweet]ask yourself why you think you can’t do something. The World shows up this week to remind you that you are capable of big, big things. This isn’t a week to go small. Go big, big, BIG, my darling Aquarians. Change something in your world then watch the ripple affect as it changes everyone else’s world too. GAIA THE WORLD

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Friendship anchors you. Count your blessings in the hearts of your friends. Expect [/inlinetweet]old friends to reach out. Connections will deepen and strengthen even when sadness pulls you towards old memories. Remember the living and the dead with love. Dive into the love knowing your presence is healing them as much as they are healing you. Make new friends but keep the old–that song is yours this week. SIX OF WATER

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Compassion for self is healing. Understanding what makes you strong is good, but understanding [/inlinetweet]why is urgently important this week. Take time to do some self-examination focused on why you make the choices you make. Then decide if that is the best choice and reason. Your personal strength will be your rock this week. Let it be a support rather than an anchor, okay? Don’t be so strong you lose. STRENGTH

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Gather with those of a like mind. This week asks that you focus on group projects so that [/inlinetweet]all can grow from the encounter. Bring what you have to the table. Let them bring what they have. Combining all of your wisdoms makes a smarter, faster, more efficient group. Don’t try to do it all yourself please. The energy will be best when you engage others to create as one beautiful mind. THREE OF EARTH

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Nature’s child, that’s you. Explore your physical needs more. Are you feeding your [/inlinetweet]body everything it needs? Healthy food goes further with a healthy attitude. And vice versa on that, chickadees. Fill your mind with prayerful attitude. Reach out to your inner self for wisdom you already carry. Be open to the messages that come this week. A child mind carries you further than a “been there, done that” attitude. CHILD OF EARTH

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Expect growth. Understand that you cannot force things to bloom if you want the full [/inlinetweet]beauty of the flower. If you are looking for work, this is a very favorable time but you must get started. You have to put the feelers out or they won’t see you. Don’t be passed over simply because you aren’t standing out. Money flows in as well even though it may not RUSH in. ACE OF EARTH

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #horoscope”]Protective instincts ratchet up when those you love are threatened. Please remember [/inlinetweet]that roaring gives your position away. Better to lie low in the grass waiting for them to come to you. Then you may pounce. Emperor energy this week gives you an inner calm that you can use to your advantage at work as well. Focus on the details of any projects. To-do lists are best. EMPEROR

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Love is in the air, baby. Just hold on to this one fact. What goes around, comes around. When you [/inlinetweet]understand that we all cycle, you will have a better grasp on what needs to happen. The salmon swims upstream then back down again knowing that the cycle of life continues. Dive into the stream rather than watch it go by. I think your week will be better when you emotionally engage the world. TEN OF WATER

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Project manager, take a bow. You are the one they will turn to for [/inlinetweet]assistance. Your strength this week will be showing others how to get from point A to point Z every time. Be compassionate with yourself as much as with others. Realize that your reputation as a healer is getting around. Don’t be surprised if a few more lost souls show up for some much needed guidance from you. And healer? Heal thyself, please. ELDER OF EARTH

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Has anyone ever suggested to you that maybe, just maybe you do to much [/inlinetweet]analyzing? That maybe you need to stop looking for the next best thing to see you are more blessed than you realized? Yes, the world is a hot mess some days. Don’t make that your reality. Accept that your journey is taking you exactly where you need to go at this moment. Accept that what you are really looking for is staring back at you from your mirror. SEVEN OF AIR

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Harvesting what is ready is key this week. Make time to check on those growth projects so [/inlinetweet]you can take stock of where you are…what you have. A journey may be closer than you think which could require you to dip into some of that growth. Always leave some seed in reserve. Don’t depelete yourself–no emergency is worth that. And please be gentle with those who tax you physically. They don’t understand. GUARDIAN OF EARTH

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #horoscope”]What brings you the most joy? Where can you dive in deeper to experience more [/inlinetweet]of your own personal happy? This week is a good week to indulge yourself. Dancing at the club? Walking in the woods? Whatever it is that charges up your joy battery, make it happen. Get serious about having fun. Hold on to the feeling of joy so you can recreate it when you have to be your workaholic self. Joy isn’t fleeting. Our ability to remember it is. So take pictures. Write yourself a note. Charge up. THREE OF WATER

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 May 31-June 6, 2015

The Winged Enchantment Oracle Deck 24 Owl
The Winged Enchantment Oracle Deck

Welcome to this week’s Tarotscopes. What’s your week got in store for you? I recommend reading your Sun, Moon and Rising signs together each week. Don’t know what yours are? Head to Astro.com where you can run your chart for free.

[Tweet “Time to read my Tarotscope for the week. What’s yours say?”]

Ready to recalibrate your joy journey? 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. What’s holding you back?

Rachel Pollack is a well-known name in the Tarot world. Recently she was diagnosed with lymphoma. The prognosis is good but her ability to work has been severely curtailed. Can you give her a hand? Spread the word too.

Did you know you can hear your full monthly Tarotscope here? Get your month started right with an in-depth joy journey.

CARD OF THE WEEK: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Seek peace in solitude. Open up the the quiet of your own soul. This week [/inlinetweet]the Owl is your guide. Listen more than you speak to gain wisdom you need. Guard your privacy zealously as well. Not all need to be welcome in your nest this week. Share yourself with those treasured few. OWL from The Winged Enchantment Oracle by Lisa Hunt and Lesley Morrison. (I highly recommend this deck for both the gorgeous artwork and the evocative descriptions.)

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What do you need to open up to? What ideas are ready to be [/inlinetweet]sent out into the world. Don’t over-analyze this. Just go with what first comes to mind. This week brings you opportunities for growth in areas that require your mind to be engaged. Emotions won’t play as big a role this week as analytical thought. (ACE OF AIR)

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What needs your passion? What things in your life lie waiting for you to [/inlinetweet]get started again? Work to make things happen in your life. Understand that you are going to have to be a MAD multi-tasker to get it all done. Delegation isn’t a bad idea either. You are not the boss of the world. Stop trying to be the caretaker of the world. (SEVEN OF FIRE)

Gaian Tarot Five of Earth
Gaian Tarot

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What shelters you? And, more importantly, who shelters you? This [/inlinetweet]will be a very important question this week. Might want to write it down. Do some journaling about it. Then revisit at the end of the week. Home may not be what or where or even who you think it is. Shelter. That’s your topic this week, Aries. Check those boundaries. (FIVE OF EARTH)

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What is out of balance, darling Bulls? Where are you giving more than you are [/inlinetweet]getting? Time to remind those in your life of what you need. Your precious calm is going to be threatened by those who want to take more than they give. Stop letting them. Even family members must be reminded of your lines. Draw them again–this time in cement. (TEMPERANCE)

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Where are you heading? Might be a good time to also check on who’s driving that [/inlinetweet]hand-basket. If you are careening towards crazy, ask yourself this, “Who am I letting drive?” Often the path to crazy is taken when we take a backseat in our own lives. Get in the front seat. Take the wheel. Time to correct your course, my dears. (CANOE aka CHARIOT)

Gaian Tarot Elder of Earth
Gaian Tarot

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]How are those projects coming? Time to check those lists to see if [/inlinetweet]you are on track. Reassess what is most important. Nurture those things that bring you the most joy. You may want to explore letting some of those many projects rest or let someone else take charge. Do what brings you joy. Do what brings you joy. Do I need to say it again? (ELDER OF EARTH)

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #horoscope”]Who do you look to for advice? It’s a good week to pick up the phone to just [/inlinetweet]do a check-in. That adviser who helps you analyze things is the best one. The emotional adviser may not see the whole picture. Go to that person who may be sharp-tongued but loves you regardless. There’s the answer you are looking for. (GUARDIAN OF AIR)

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What questions still lie unanswered? Dig out your old journals to compare [/inlinetweet]them to your current ones. See what questions you were asking then. You may be going over old ground right now. This week calls for some solo exploration so don’t be surprised if you find yourself saying no to group events. This is more about you than anyone else. (HERMIT)

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What are you tied to? What is holding you back? Here you have to explore [/inlinetweet]old things that keep you from growing. Time to shed your world of those who tie you to an unhappy time. There is nothing that says you must keep people in your life when all they do is tempt you to give in to your darker self. Let go. (BINDWEED aka THE DEVIL)

Gaian Tarot Two of Fire
Gaian Tarot

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]Where is that spark, precious? Who are you setting your sights on for [/inlinetweet]passion and play? Don’t let them go through life without knowing how you feel. Who knows…they may return that heat. Things could get fiery if you play your cards right. RAWRRRR! (TWO OF FIRE)

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #horoscope”]What rabbit hole are you trying to fall in? This week may bring more [/inlinetweet]second-guessing, anxiety and bad dreams than you like if you don’t remember this one thing. You are loved. You are safe. You are special. Don’t allow your own self-doubt to trip you up. No need to chase your tail over what’s gone. Focus on what you have. (NINE OF AIR)

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #horoscope”]Who is your tribe? Maybe your tribe isn’t all in your neighborhood. Still [/inlinetweet]you need to reach out to them. Connect. Make plans to celebrate why you are a tribe. Don’t let time go by without seeing those you love. This is a good week to connect to those who get you on a cellular level. Find your tribe, darling. (SIX OF AIR)

I hope you’ve enjoyed these. I’d love to hear from you if you find these useful. Just leave me a comment if you will. And thanks so much for sharing these via Facebook, G+, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. I love stumbling across what you’ve shared. Seek joy, y’all. Just seek joy.

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Sparkle time for you. If they insist on focusing on you, you might as well [/inlinetweet]shine, right? Watch your levels of defensiveness though. Fences you build this week may need gates next week. Save yourself some time before you wall yourself in. Remember, sparkle rather than shatter. You can do this. Nine of Wands

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Finally you are rewarded for good behaviour. Accept the accolades with [/inlinetweet]sincerity.

Tarotscopes for February 22-28, 2015

Chrysalis Tarot
Chrysalis 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 “I’m ready to seek joy, y’all. Just read my Tarotscope. What did yours say?”]

Ready to rock your life? Over all the negativity that surrounds us? 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. What’s holding you back?

I’ve been reading a book that has really been quite helpful. It’s The Mindfulness Habit by Kate Sciandra. She sets up a six week plan to help you create the habit of being present. This book is a game-changer for me. She understands our busy lives and gives you tools on how to work being mindful into that. It’s on my Kindle. Get it on yours! Or print is available too.

Check out February’s podcast. How close was I to your month? I do these every month to help you take an in-depth joy journey. If you were subscribed on iTunes, they won’t carry my podcast any more. Sorry!

CARD OF THE WEEK: GAIA THE EMPRESS [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Whoa! Gotta love it when the energy of the week is[/inlinetweet] abundance and creativity. Time to dive into what makes you thrive! This could be cooking up a storm. Maybe reorganizing your kitchen? Do something that looks like work to others but makes your inner rockstar sing.

AQUARIUS SORCERESS THE HIGH PRIESTESS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Time to work a little magic by making sure[/inlinetweet] you don’t tell everybody everything. Make them work a bit for your words, your wisdom. This is about reinforcing your mystique (feminine or masculine.) Magic happens for you this week on quiet, internal planes. Be ready.

PISCES GREEN MAN THE EMPEROR [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Compassion and boundaries can be[/inlinetweet] the same thing. By letting them know they are crossing your lines, you are encouraging them to respect your relationship. Your role as protector to the weak is going to be amped up so be ready.

ARIES SIX OF MIRRORS [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Sometimes looking back can help us look[/inlinetweet] forward. By examining those old selves, we can see who we are today. I encourage my clients to think about who they were 3,6,9 years ago. Think about who you thought you wanted to be. Think about who you are now. Celebrate the “mistakes” that brough you here. Now look to your self in 3,6,9 years. Who do you think you will be then?

TAURUS RAVENS THE MAGICIAN [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] What needs to happen in your life for you to be more [/inlinetweet]mindful? This card suggests that being more playful will help. Loosen up the yoke you’ve placed on yourself (or allowed to be placed). Dance a few steps instead of walking. Put flowers on your desk and in your hair. Loosen up to let the magic flow this week.

GEMINI THE ARTISTE QUEEN OF STONES [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] When is the last time you sat down to[/inlinetweet] create something that brought you joy? Just indulged in color, sound, words that moved you? Make room this week for practical creativity. Practical because you need it. It’s a necessity for you right now so make it so!

CANCER THE MINSTREL KING OF STONES [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] What is the song in your heart right now? Is[/inlinetweet] it one you want others to hear you sing? If not, change it. Pick a new tune. Try a new style. Wander a bit this week to hear how others are singing the same song.

LEO TEN OF SCROLLS [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”] Well, now. What keeps repeating in your life. Time to [/inlinetweet]understand why patterns are so important. Once you see the repetitions, you can take control. You can break those patterns. May feel a bit trapped this week but you can fix that. Change your stripes, darlings.

VIRGO EIGHT OF SCROLLS [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Focus is important but this week may[/inlinetweet] prove more challenging. Many ideas coming at you. Everyone seems to need a piece of your mind. Don’t let them take it. Set up some strong boundaries regarding your time and energy. Make them respect that energy.

LIBRA BELLA ROSA THE DEVIL[inlinetweet prefix=”Libra” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Time to let go. When you understand the power of[/inlinetweet] not caring about the unimportant, you grow. Set down the masks you wear. Time to let people see your true self. Beauty comes from living an authentic life. Don’t be tempted to be like the others. You are you for a reason.

SCORPIO TWO OF MIRRORS [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] In whose eyes is your heart reflected? Where[/inlinetweet] can you see yourself? Look to your family, your friends, your loves. See your true beauty looking back at you. Pretty is as pretty does will be your motto this week. Choose to be around those who reflect your good back at you.

SAGITTARIUS THE POET KING OF SCROLLS [inlinetweet prefix=”Sagittarius” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Time to put pen to paper, my darling. Time to[/inlinetweet] express yourself. I challenge you to write yourself a love letter. I set a geas upon you to start the play of your own life. Let words be your vehicle as you uncover your inner poet.

CAPRICORN PAPA LEGBA STRENGTH [inlinetweet prefix=”Capricorn ” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”] Sometimes you have to surrender your own[/inlinetweet] ego in order to succeed. This card calls your need to be perfect into question. See yourself not only in the successful CEO but in the muddy child and the homeless man. Understand that all are just expressions of strength. When you push aside your need to be right, you can understand the lessons of the mistakes.

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.

TarotBlogHop: Imbolc

NEXT | MASTER | NEXT
Oracular Anomalies is the subject we’ve been given for this Tarot Blog Hop. Did you know that this is the beginning of the fourth year of this? I’m so pleased that what started as a community-building exercise has gone on for this long. We’ve seen so many amazing voices join this chorus. I’m blessed to be a part of such a vibrant community. Like to join us? Go here.

As I thought about the topic, I had to look up the definition of anomaly. I had a good concept since I am a child of the original Star Trek series. “Mr. Spock, what do you make of it?” “It’s an anomaly, Captain.”

One of the definitions is “strays from common rules or methods.” Right. I see this a lot. Many consultants, readers, coaches, whatever name we want to call ourselves, try to set ourselves apart by pointing out how different we are. How we are anomalies in a sea of anomalies.

I mean, let’s face it. How do you stand out in a crowd of unusual? This is the thing that has my mind buzzing right now. There’s an inherent part of me that loathes promotion by demotion. By that I mean the need to sing my praises by putting down someone else. Or a group.

It’s something I work at but by the very nature of the beast, I fail at. For instance, I see someone on the Book o’ Face who is bitching about how he doesn’t like so-and-so doing something. But he doesn’t say this TO so-and-so. He says it to a locked down group of friends.

I get upset about him not saying something to so-and-so. I go to my Book o’ Face to post. My post says those who don’t go to the source are perpetuating the problem.

Um, Arwen? You just did the same damned thing.

So I’ve just stood out for the wrong reason. Back to anomaly me. How do I stand out in this fabulously flawed fellowship? Without putting down others? Is it even possible in our world of “my detergent cleans better than yours?”

Well this is a divination hop, right? Let’s ask the Tarot.

Anomaly Spread

1. What area am I most unique?
2. How can I play up that uniqueness?
3. How can I stand out the best?

Using the Chrysalis Tarot (U.S. Games Systems, Inc.) I got cards that made me smile.

Chrysalis Tarot

1. The Pilgrim is how I am most unique.

2. The Poet is how I should play up that uniqueness.

3. The Mime is how I can stand out the best.

Without further commentary on these cards, I’ll just say, “MOOOOMMMMM! The Universe is mocking me again.”

If you have input on these three cards, feel free to let me know. I need to go practice my “I’m in a box” routine.

Welcome to your weekly Tarotscopes for February 1-7, 2015. Are you ready to ROCK February? I know I am.

Welcome to your weekly Tarotscopes for February 1-7, 2015. Are you ready to ROCK February? I know I am.

I’m very pleased to let you know that I am now an independent consultant with Pampered Chef. I’ve used their products for nearly 20 years so I guess it was time to represent them too. If you want to do an online show, hit me up! I’m also doing in-person shows in the Austin area.

I’m using a brand-new really unusual Tarot called Omegaland. It’s based on a dystopian future. If you’re a fan of Revolution or The Walking Dead, I think you’ll really enjoy this deck.(This is not a zombie deck.)

Looking for the monthly podcast? Head here.

Before we hit the forecasts for this week, I wanted to give you a heads up about two yummy Tarot items.

One is Holistic Tarot by Benebell Wen. It’s getting a lot of positive attention for a reason. I was lucky enough to get to read it before it went to print. It’s a great book if you want to learn to read the cards for practical, demystifying work. I recommend it.

The other is BiddyTarot.com‘s tarot course. Starting February 9, she’ll show you how to build a personal connection with the Tarot, using simple yet powerful techniques for interpreting the Tarot Check it out. The early bird special is still available

Here are your scopes! Thanks for sharing them.

[Tweet “Okay, let’s get the week going. I read my Tarotscope.”]

ARIES FIVE OF COINS Running on empty w/ change in your pocket? Don’t forget to ask for what you need. Reach out. Who abandoned whom? Ask for help.
