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

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.

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?

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.

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 “Have you read your weekly Tarotscope? Tell me what yours said. Check out what Arwen says will happen.”]

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?

Mindfulness is one of those buzz words, isn’t it? Like everyone is always telling us to be more mindful. Well I’ve read a book that actually tackles that concept in a really easy way. Kate Sciandra breaks it down into actionable steps. She offers practical ways to beging building a mindfulness practice of your own. I’d love to hear your thoughts on her method. Check out her book here. You can get it in Kindle or in print.

Gaian Tarot Child of Air
Gaian Tarot

CARD OF THE WEEK: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Time to examine your thoughts. Which one will you pick to [/inlinetweet]be your focus. How about a word for the week. So many of us do our words for the year, but what about words for the week? What do you want to achieve this week? What word describes that? The Page of Air calls us to focus on what we want. Stick to your path this week, darlings! (CHILD OF AIR)

nine-airAQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Sometimes you must trust in the knowledge that no matter where you go, there [/inlinetweet]is someone watching out for you. Check in with your inner anxiety moderator. Make sure s/he hasn’t been out in the mole field making mountains. You know what I mean, Vern? We can create monsters in the closet so easily. Maybe it would be a better use or out energy to trust that the Universe has our best interests at heart. What do you say? (NINE OF AIR)

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Energy is readily available. This week may feel like it is on fast forward, but that’s [/inlinetweet]totally okay. Plan for where you want to be. Look to where you are going rather than where you have been. Understand that a falling star may be beautiful, but it is at the end of its current life path. What are you at the end of? Realize that means you are the beginning of something else. (EIGHT OF FIRE)

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Inter-office blah blah blah rarely does anyone any good. If you can, ignore those who must [/inlinetweet]always be negative. They don’t have anything good to say. All that sniping causes grief for you if you allow them to pull you in. So you have to hear it…but you don’t have to actually listen to it. Go to your happy place while they bitch and moan. Don’t let the whiners of the world drag you down with them. (FIVE OF AIR)

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Prayers work. Yours are being heard. The key is how you are sending them up and what you are [/inlinetweet]asking for. Remember to couch all requests in positive terms. It’s better to ask for sunshine than no rain. Stay on the sunny side of the street. You can even whistle a merry tune since you have the Universe’s ear right now. Ask for what you want. Stay positive. Kinda simple, yes? (ELDER OF AIR)

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Tackle that budget, sweethearts. Don’t overspend this week. Some things look amazing but [/inlinetweet]the truth is? The end result won’t be what you want. Give it another week at least. Something better may come along. So don’t let anyone sweet talk you into dipping into those savings. Not even that cutie in your mirror. Money needs to be left alone to grow rather than spent on what you don’t really even need. (GUARDIAN OF EARTH)

Gaian Tarot Eight of Air
Gaian Tarot

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Gather up your best thinkers. Share stories with one another as innovative ways to[/inlinetweet] resolve challenges. Make sure you listen twice as much as you speak. Your role this week will be as the creator of space for everyone to come together. In this sharing, you can expect to learn as much about them as you do about your own precious self. Come to council, Cancer. Learn from others. (EIGHT OF AIR)

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Dream big, sugar, but pick one this week. It’s all well and good to have a bucket list, but [/inlinetweet]it won’t do you any good if you don’t start checking some items off. Big ones too big? Fine. Tackle some of the small ones. You don’t know until you ask. And if you can, avoid the emotional dithering that may come this week. Don’t ask yourself what you want to do. Tell yourself. Then do it. (SEVEN OF CUPS)

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Gather with friends to pool resources. You can do more when you are all working towards that [/inlinetweet]common goal, that greater good. Sharing the abundance is recommended. The best thing you can do this week is gather with those you love. Projects just go better when you bring in other hands, hearts and minds. (THREE OF EARTH)

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Being the go-to person is what’s on your plate this week. Your role is compassionate nurturer rather [/inlinetweet]than critic. you’ve been working on something for a while now. Celebrate that your goal is closer than you think. Look back at the work you have done to get to this point in your life. Be as compassionate with yourself as you are with any injured animal. Heal your heart. (ELDER OF EARTH)

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Scarcity thinking. Do you know what that is? Google it because it is going to be [/inlinetweet]very important to NOT go there this week. Understanding the abundance that is available will help you move from a “busting ass to get” mode of thinking to a “it’s already on the way” mode of thinking. How much easier is it to know what you want is coming? Yeah, let’s live that life this week instead. (FOUR OF EARTH)

Gaian Tarot Three of Air
Gaian Tarot

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Doing some work around emotional loss is going to be in the forefront of [/inlinetweet]everything you tackle. Don’t be surprised if an ex wants to mend fences. Not coming back as a lover, but renewing the friendship that founded the relationship. Good week to pull down some old journals. Healing our hearts means tackling our minds first. We have to change how we think about that person in order to move on. (THREE OF AIR)

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]What needs to be burned away? Who are you seeing when you look in the mirror? Can[/inlinetweet] you let go of other’s expectations of you? When you can, you will be ready to rise up like the phoenix from the ashes. That act of freeing yourself can help you reconnect with the passionate life. You must burn away what has gone. Those who no longer support you are not worth your time. Free your mind from wanting what will never return. (ELDER 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.

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. ๐Ÿ˜€ )

DaughtersoftheMoon_13DeathPhoenix001How 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.

[Tweet “Cards say it’s going to be a bumpy ride. Buckle up, precious. “]

CARD OF THE WEEK: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Time to rise up, my darlings. 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. Consider this your invitation to re-invent that person you see in the mirror. Open up to the changes that must be made if you are to survive. Don’t be afraid. Rise up. You will rise up. (PHOENIX aka DEATH)

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]You will find a quiet, calm strength buried deep within if you [/inlinetweet]take the time to look. Compassion for yourself is the ultimate goal. Reword how you speak to you, please. When you understand that your inner beast is just in need of more compassion, you will in the battle for your new self. (STRENGTH)

Daughters of the Moon, Kali the Tower
Daughters of the Moon

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. Small signs can lead to huge revelations. What do you need to learn? That’s a good question. Ask now, then listen this week for the insights from the Universe. (ISIS THE PRIESTESS)

Daughters of the Moon, The Witch the Magician
Daughters of the Moon

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. You should stick your finger into the stream to see how the patterns are immediately changed. Change your patterns to change your life. (THE DREAMER aka THE FOOL)

Daughters of the Moon, The Dreamer The Fool
Daughters of the Moon

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Dance a bit more. Develop a playful mindset even where your finances [/inlinetweet]are concerned. By not letting money fence you in, you can enjoy life more. Look to the young people in your life for ways to have more fun with less money. They can do it. So can you. (LADA MAIDEN OF PENTACLES)

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. Your true strength comes from getting in touch with your inner bitch, inner witch, inner awesome child. Let them co-mingle to see what they can create. (MAMI WATU MAIDEN OF CUPS)

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)

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 5/10-16, 2015

Gorgon Tarot Judgment
Gorgon Tarot, Schiffer Books

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 “Hula hoops, Gorgons and smackdowns from Arwen. Hmmmm, didn’t see that coming.”]

What can a hula hoop teach you about life? I have a few thoughts here. Dive into your own hula hoop reading. Rather have me do it? I’ve got five slots open this week. Hit me up via email. This is an in-depth reading that take an hour. I’m offering it for 25% off my normal hour fee.

I’m curious about what other people read. Currently, I’m reading the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey and her son Todd who has admirably carried on in the world his mother built. So tell me, what’s on your shelf? Or Kindle?

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 #tarot”]Give honor to those who deserve it. Rise up against those [/inlinetweet]who don’t. Judgment is the card of the week. This is a call to examine who and what we work for. Is it an honorable thing we do or is it dishonorable? A big question must be answered this week. This card also calls us to transcend to the next level–to take it one step beyond what we think we can accomplish. That one step will help us answer the bigger question of honor. JUDGMENT

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Boom. There should have been a boom. Or so says Marvin [/inlinetweet]the Martian. Something needs to come down in your world, Water-Bearers. Feels like you are going to have to work at undoing a thought process that isn’t serving you. Do you still believe you aren’t enough? Kick that attitude to the curb. Once you take down that tower of self-doubt, you will soar. But it won’t be easy. You will have to fight it with everything you’ve got but you can win this battle. Boom. TOWER

Gorgon Tarot Two of Pentacles
Gorgon Tarot, Schiffer

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Be cautious in your thinking. With all the retrograde energy going on, [/inlinetweet]it’s easy to lose your focus. When you find yourself stabbing yourself in your own foot, pull your attention back to what must be done. I highly recommend writing out a to-do list to help you through this week. Going to be scattered so rein it in, fishy. SEVEN OF SWORDS

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]YAY! Expect that out-of-balance feeling to dissipate just enough [/inlinetweet]to give you some breathing room. There may be a decision that comes up this week around work vs. play. As long as you allow yourself to do both, it will be good. Choosing one over the other may make you feel split. Work on playing and play at work. That will see you through this week. TWO OF PENTACLES

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Well honey, if you continually lay down, they WILL walk all over you[/inlinetweet]. Because you keep letting them AND because you think it’s what you deserve. Knock that off right now, you hear me? There is a difference between being a victim and being a survivor. You bulls are best at surviving. Dump that victim mentality at the door, please and thank you. It’s really quite unattractive. TEN OF SWORDS

Gorgon Tarot Temperance
Gorgon Tarot, Schiffer

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Remember that what you put out is what you get back. Don’t fool yourself [/inlinetweet], sweeties. Playing false will bite you in the ass. Stick the truth and nothing but the truth if you want to come clean in a current sticky situation. Best to just own up to any mistakes. And for goodness sakes, don’t let anyone hide behind you. They need to be brought to the light. You aren’t doing anyone any favors. JUSTICE

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Sweet! It’s a week for you to find balance again. Things may have been a bit [/inlinetweet]of kilter. Not to worry. Moderation will win the day. Remember that you can change your energy only. Theirs is theirs. I want you to take some time each day to breathe. Just nothing else but focusing on your own breath. Letting go of what isn’t yours will help you move forward. TEMPERANCE

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Oh honey, are you feeling a bit out of sorts? I’ve got good news [/inlinetweet]for you. This isn’t the time to dwell on past hurts. There’s a time limit on how much angst you can have over mistakes made. Time’s up. Turn back to those that DO have something to offer you. Please release the hold your past still has on you. You are going to waste the gifts they are trying to give because you are so tied to the past. FIVE OF CUPS

Gorgon Tarot Queen of Cups
Gorgon Tarot, Schiffer

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Time to do a little navel-gazing, darlings. Finally some time to yourself to [/inlinetweet]start doing some internal housecleaning. Check your attitude at the door. No one really loves decluttering but I promise you that the end result will be worth the sacrifice. Please view things from a different perspective. How much of that mental crap do you really need to hang on to? HANGED ONE

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Strong emotions shouldn’t scare you. They are just life’s [/inlinetweet]way of getting your attention. Trust your gut this week, please. And for goodness sake, lead with compassion. No one likes a bitter Bertie, Betty. This week can find you on the wahmbulance if you aren’t careful. Before you open your mouth, double check your intention. Truth is good, but this week? Beauty is better. QUEEN OF CUPS

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Create. That’s all. Just create. Making the world more beautiful [/inlinetweet]is your geas this week. Paint something. Write something. Sing something. Cook something. Do something that adds to the WOW of someone’s every day joy. You are on tap to be joy ambassadors this week. Are you ready? 3, 2, 1 SMILE. You need to be on a roll so others have someone to follow. Yep, TAG! You’re it. EMPRESS

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Into every life, a little sunshine creeps. Looks like love may come from an [/inlinetweet]unexpected source. Make sure you are out there with your face turned up to catch the rays. Someone is looking at you with a hopeful heart but are you looking back? What amazing times you can have if you just reach out a hand to say, “Hi, I see you there.” Recognize your place in the partnerships you are already in. TWO OF CUPS

Gorgon Tarot Four of Wands
Gorgon Tarot, Schiffer

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]Stability is guaranteed this week if you learn to celebrate the [/inlinetweet]smallest things. Even successfully peeling an egg is a reason to smile. There could be a life event that you need to significantly appreciate. This really needs to be a whole-hearted YEE HAW. Someone near you may not be feeling appreciated. I know, you’ve been busy. Still, it’s time to show those in your immediate world how important they are to you. FOUR OF WANDS

What will it take for you to move into joy? What holds you back from creating small moments of bliss in your world? Got fifteen minutes? I’m ready to help. What’s holding you back?

Zombie Tarot
Zombie 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.

Your free May 2015 Tarotscopes in-depth podcast is available.

[Tweet “Zombies for the week? Thanks a lot. My horoscope featured Zombies?? DO OVER!”]

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?

Did you know I’m a huge advocate for joy? I know…shocker. I’m listening to an audiobook series right now that is bringing me a lot of that joy I seek. It’s an older one but the series is fun. Have you read/listened to this series? No spoilers but if you have, tell me in the comments. Or make your own recommendations. I really adore books, don’t you?

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: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Life gives. Death takes away. Or is that the other [/inlinetweet]way ’round? Either way, the messag of the week is one of balance. Don’t expect more out than you put in. Don’t assume others will be happy to give their all just because you are. If you can moderate your reactions, you will survive this week. Strive to be as middle-of-the-road as possible–particularly in extremely volatile discussions. TEMPERANCE

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Well, once it all falls apart, you will need [/inlinetweet]a road map, some strong twine and a safe place to hide. Remember you can prevent this from being one of “those” weeks by limiting your engagements. Really good week to find a hidey-hole. Definitely avoid the malls. And if it really falls apart? Ask yourself this. Do you really want it back the way that it was? Maybe your chance to change things for the good of all. TEN OF WANDS

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]It’s a bad idea to give into the grief because [/inlinetweet]there may be more coming. Hold strong for now. Find solace in others. If you focus on all the “what went wheels up”, you may find that there are those in your life who would be happy to deliver more of the same emotional carnage. Better to stand up, face the future instead of letting them eat you alive. FIVE OF CUPS

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Um, any port in a storm may not be the [/inlinetweet]best answer. This week promises to offer plenty of sympathy and tea coming your way. You just need to make sure there isn’t arsenic in the tea. Some are genuine in their offers of support. Some never are. Play it smart, Aries. Avoid the lovers of old lace to stay emotionally healthy. You know what I mean. FOUR OF CUPS

Zombie Tarot Queen of Wands
Zombie Tarot

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Honestly, sometimes you make it worse than it is by [/inlinetweet]over-engaging with the enemy. Yes, the enemy. That can be yourself when you are being so negative about yourself. It can be your friends who don’t support you with love and laughter. It can be the job that seems to big to finish. Your attitude is going to need watching this week. Stay positive, Bulls. Don’t let your own mind pull you down. NINE OF SWORDS

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Baffle them with bullshit or maybe it’s a good week to [/inlinetweet]just make a decision. A final decision. One that you can’t waffle on. Time to fish or cut bait, my dears. Analyze the decision. Poke at the roots. Then either fertilize it so it will grow or chop it down. You weaken your own position by not stating the obvious. TWO OF WANDS

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Be aware that legal issues could be decided this week. If [/inlinetweet]you are in the wrong, prepare to pay the piper. If you are in the right, prepare to be paid. Also pay attention to areas in your life that need more balance. Fairness comes into play as well. Do the right thing every time to succeed this week. Cutting corners is not recommended. JUSTICE

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Sometimes the very best weapon is your brain when your heart [/inlinetweet]is fully engaged. Stop being mean. Being kind takes more strength than you know. Filtering out the anger so that the compassion can take over is a real cardio workout. Your anger may be justified, but try replacing it with love. See how much better you feel. Because, in the end, it’s really all about you. STRENGTH

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Winner! You have done all the work so now you get to [/inlinetweet]enjoy the spoils of your own personal battles. Just remember that generally speaking, one battle doesn’t win the whole war. Still, it’s a good week to rest on your laurels. Accept the accolades coming your way. Quietly make preparations for the next phase of this journey. SIX OF WANDS

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Learn this lesson well to succeed in all things. You must [/inlinetweet]work with others. Bringing others in on the plan or project will ease your work load plus widen the scope. When you can be open to group effort, you can make it better. Not a good week to go the “I do it myself” routine, okay? Accept help. Offer help. Form committees even. Just remember this is about the group mind this week. THREE OF HAZARDS

Zombie Tarot Eight of Swords
Zombie Tarot

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Sometimes we are hoisted on our own petard when we [/inlinetweet] forget how trapped we can be by our own decisions. Faced with something you don’t want to do? Feeling put up on,ill-used, taken advantage of? Take a moment to really examine the situation. Who said yes in the first place? How many outs did you have that you didn’t take? Time to face the music, Scorpio. Your own belief may have gotten you hear. Change how you think to leave. EIGHT OF SWORDS

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Oh the key energy of this week is dedication with a side of [/inlinetweet]multi-tasking. Time to show off your multi-armed approach to all you have to get done this week. Super full plate? Don’t worry, Archers. You’ve got this. Expect a burst of energy about mid-week to carry you through this “get ‘er done” frenzy. Do remember that you don’t have to do anyone’s work other than your own. If you say yes to them, no fair being a martyr. You did say yes. QUEEN OF WANDS

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]Sometimes it feels like everyone needs a piece of your [/inlinetweet]heart. As if they think you can be all things to all people. Don’t be surprised if someone tries to bite you in the ass after you’ve been nothing but kind to them. Just that kind of a week. My advice? Grab a journal and get to writing. Sometimes putting all the emotional stress and trauma down on paper makes it easier to manage. You know, Cappy….make a list. THREE OF SWORDS

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.

Goals, butt kicking and dreams. This week’s Tarotscopes cover it all. What was yours?

DarkGoddess_3Cards003Welcome to this week’s Tarotscopes. What’s your goal this week? Tell me in the comments. ๐Ÿ˜€

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 “Goals, butt kicking and dreams. This week’s @Tarotscopes cover it all. What was yours?”]

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?

So I’ve been going through my bookshelves to see what books can go. Here’s one that I’ll never let go of. I love this woman’s Tarot knowledge.

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: [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Looks like a good week to reconsider your personal rules and [/inlinetweet]boundaries. What needs to be changed? What needs to be shored up? Got any holes in your fences? Time to check the perimeter. If folks are encroaching on your space and time, it’s probably because they think they can. (HIEROPHANT CYBLE)

AQUARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Change is coming. It may be difficult to negotiate if you don’t remember to always[/inlinetweet] stay in the present moment. When you lean into the future, you may trip over the here and now. Deal with what is in front of you. Death brings inevitable rearrangements to our lives. It is the card of hard, unavoidable change. Remember that it gets better as you navigate this week. (DEATH LA SANTA MUERTE)

PISCES [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]One thing will see you through this week. You cannot falter in this area if you would[/inlinetweet] succeed. The secret word is focus. Focus on what must be done as opposed to what could be done. Begin those things that must be begun. Fate favors the prepared so make to-do lists. Mark things off. Add more things to the list. Don’t let up on your focus. (ACE OF AIR NEMESIS)

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Pay attention to your things. Check insurance policies. Are you fully [/inlinetweet]covered? Good week to check on that. “Protect what you possess” is the message of the week. Don’t assume someone else has taken care of it. Also? Make sure you aren’t relaxing your guard in those areas where others have taken advantage of you. Be alert please. (NINE OF FIRE CHANTICO)

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Nice week for some dream work, Bulls. Open up to the messages[/inlinetweet] that come from the other side. You may be surprised by what you learn. Indulge in the cycles as well. Where you are, where they are…these are both beautiful places. Learn from them as you teach them what you know. (MOON ARIANRHOD)

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]It’s okay. You have permission from the Universe to hole up and [/inlinetweet]take care of your own interests. Good week to dive into learning about things like who you are, where you come from, where you are going. You know…the simple things in life. I recommend opening up that journal you keep saying you are going to use. (HERMIT BABA YAGA)

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]What must be balanced? What are you struggling to rise [/inlinetweet]above? Be gentle with yourself. Acknowledging the patterns in your life can help. See where you participated in your own successes and your own tragedies is good if you want to move to your next personal best. You’ve got this, Cancer. (LIBERATION/JUDGMENT PERSEPHONE)

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Yes! This is your time to make everything [/inlinetweet]you want to make. Want to try out that new recipe? Make it happen. Want to start that book that’s bugging you? Do it. You have all the tools. Stop setting up roadblocks for yourself. If you can just get out of your own way, magic will happen this week. (MAGICIAN ISIS)

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Look inwards, my practical darlings. A little navel-gazing never hurt anyone. What [/inlinetweet]do you need emotionally? What will help you expand on your soul level. Go deep this week to meet your true self. Time to make a heart’s desires list. That’s way more important than a rusty old bucket list. Believe in your ability to want. (ACE OF WATER FACE OF THE DEEP)

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]When troubles come, you are ready. Expect to be the warrior for [/inlinetweet]others this week. Someone may turn to you with a need that you can provide. Show them how you moved from the bad times. You don’t have to carry them. In face, you shouldn’t carry them. Just be the leader that they need. Compassion goes a long way. (SIX OF AIR SCATHACH)

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Whirl. Now whirl some more. Dazzle yourself with your own ability to [/inlinetweet]dance in the face of danger. Time to show off is now. You have had your head down for so long…who knows what you’ve missed. Let’s make this week about mental cleansing. Clear out your brain closet of all that clutter of “would’ve, should’ve, could’ve.” (WITCH OF AIR OYA)

SAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]When you are at a crossroad in life, why waste time [/inlinetweet]dithering. Make a choice, Archer. Then stick to it. When you keep going back down a path you know is closed, you are just wasting your own precious life. We all have a limited time in this body, in this life. Why screw around two-stepping? New path. New forward motion. (TWO OF FIRE HEKATE)

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]Spring! It’s here! New beginnings. Time to take that risk you’ve [/inlinetweet]been talking about. Time to leap off life’s cliff to see how far you can fly (or bounce). Stop letting others get in the way of your joy. Time to kick up your heels. If you can’t make them laugh, make yourself laugh. (FOOL SHEELA NA GIG)

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.

VanessaTarot_5SwordsCARD OF THE WEEK: [inlinetweet prefix=”CotW” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Just a lot of edginess going on so let’s treat each other with kindness first.[/inlinetweet]Might not be the best week to engage with those people who continually tick you off. You might give them that piece of your mind that will end the relationship. If you need then in your life for good reason, please avoid them this week. Five of Swords

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. Don’t forget that you must look to the future still. Yes, you’ve done really well, but please continue planning for your other stellar successes. It’s a good week for you, darling. Nine of Coins

ARIES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Looking for your happily ever after? I think it might be [/inlinetweet]staring you in the face. Hug those closest to you. When you realize that your perfect family/community is right where you are, happiness takes over. Indulge in meals with those you love. Call the family you don’t see every day. Reconnecting with your happiness takes work but it’s right there where you are. Ten of Cups

TAURUS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Your passion may take over this week. Don’t worry if you suddenly give in to [/inlinetweet]an urge to create. Getting fired up creatively is such a good thing, darling. Carpe idea! When you grab that idea as hard as it grabs you, it’s a beautiful thing. Let your loves know you are creating. They will understand. Ace of Wands

GEMINI [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Your future is so bright you ought to be wearing shades, precious. Seriously [/inlinetweet]who doesn’t want a piece of your action this week? Remember that you must rule your passion to win. Don’t believe all the hype coming your way. You know your own worth. Select those friends who offer you honesty over flattery. Then show the world your amazing self. King of WandsVanessaTarot_6Lovers

CANCER [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Here comes the…well you know. But remember that sometimes your best lover [/inlinetweet]is the one you see in the mirror. Life’s lesson this week is going to be about loving yourself. Stop being so damned critical all the time. It isn’t good for plants, animals, kids or you. Lift yourself up with praise. Lovers

LEO [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Go on. Jump. You will land not just on your feet but with a show-stopping [/inlinetweet]rebel yell. This week is about you plunging into things that call you. Your fire is stoked so do take on that scary project. And maybe book yourself a flight somewhere you’ve never been. How’s the weather in Bali this time of year? Knight of Wands

VIRGO [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Are you in a place that doesn’t make you happy? If the walls are dark and gloomy, it’s time [/inlinetweet]to paint them a brighter color. That’s real walls and metaphysical ones too. Maybe a change of scenery would do you and them a world of good. At least plan your next trip so you have something to look forward to, okay? Six of Swords

LIBRA [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Ennui, cher? C’est la vie! You are the one who needs to cheer yourself up. [/inlinetweet]That’s the job of your friends/family/loves. They will help you only if you reach out to them, okay? And if this is a pattern, maybe you need to consider paying for the time of a professional, oui? Best remedy for the blues is to engage in life. Fill your cup up with something sweet. Four of Cups

SCORPIO [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Drink deeply, darling. Others are looking to you for guidance in matters [/inlinetweet]the heart and of the soul. Expect others to divulge secrets. You are a vault but some of these secrets may need to be shared to help them. Judge wisely and with compassion. This will be a trying week for you in matters of the heart because you may be reminded of your own secrets. King of Cups

VanessaTarot_14CupsSAGITTARIUS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Being generous is a two-way street. When you give, you grow, it’s true, but [/inlinetweet]when you accept you also grow. Don’t deny someone’s authentic attempt to help. Don’t be stingy with your thanks, Archer. It lessens you when you dismiss other’s gifts. Be strong enough to say, “Thank you. I needed that.” Six of Coins

CAPRICORN [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]Whoa! Heads up, Cappies. I don’t want you to miss this when it happens. It’s [/inlinetweet]going to be one of those passing opportunities. Be ready to stick your hand up in the air when they ask for volunteers. Your participation in this project could be one of the luckiest things this year. Wheel of Fortune

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

CARD OF THE WEEK: Eight of Cups [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Oh Noes! Careful with your heart, darlings. You could [/inlinetweet]be in for a bit of a trip down the branch of memory lane best avoided. Do try to emulate Mr. Frost and take the road less taken? If you must wallow in old pain, at least try to not splash about so much. That sticky icky tends to bring others down as well. Focus on the good memories, please. It will make for a better week for all.

AQUARIUS TEN OF WANDS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Sure you’re organized. Sure you can do it all but [/inlinetweet]sometimes it’s best to say “Thank you but no.” You can graciously decline the extra tasks offered to you. Remind them of someone else who might have more time. Sidestep all conversations that start with, “Hey, I’ve got this idea and I need your help” to minimize your own load. Unless you like being overworked, under-appreciated and not paid. Then go for it. But between you and me? I’m saying no this week. A lot!

PISCES ACE OF SWORDS [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Expect to get recognized for your work. Be open to [/inlinetweet]accolades and songs of praise. Acknowledge your achievements yourself even if no one else does. And start something new. You’ve got a million ideas in your clever, creative head. Get one down on paper. Start a to-do list and get things TA-DONE! Make this week about creating something real in your life.

ARIES King OF WANDS [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Be bold. Be brave. Be more [/inlinetweet]than you think you can be. And since most Aries are pretty sure of themselves, you can bet this is going to be an “all things are mine” week for you. I want you to throw down with courage, my darling Rams. Stand up for what is right. Ask for what you want and be ready to receive all of it. You own this week. Oh, and remain flexible. Spiritual yoga never hurts!

TAURUS FOUR OF WANDS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Grab the crayons, kiddos! There’s a whole blank page waiting for [/inlinetweet]you this week. Make a list of all the things you want. Celebrate your desires. Don’t be surprised if a travel opportunity pops up too. Might be a good week to review what you want out of relationships. Both the ones you are already in (work, family, friends, romance, spiritual) and the ones you want (see previous list.) Create the life you want.

GEMINI QUEEN OF WANDS [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Nap time? Who has time for that this week? Your [/inlinetweet]mission is to show the world how to be better about self-care. You are a multitasking wizard this week but don’t forget to schedule in some me-time,mmmkay? Mani/Pedi time? Bubble Bath? You are the best person to give yourself the care you require so treat yourself like the queen you are. And wear running shoes this week.

CANCER TEN OF BUTTONS (COINS) [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]What a lovely week! You can expect the dog to sit, the kids [/inlinetweet]to do their homework, and the bills to practically pay themselves. Okay, maybe 2 out of 3. But seriously, Crab kids, when you expect good things, good things come. Of course you have to work for them, but this week it may seem like the good far outweighs the bad. And if it doesn’t? Focus focus focus on the good. Enjoy your stability.

LEO JUSTICE [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Legal documents may take up a lot of your time this week. But remember [/inlinetweet]you are calling the shots as long as you are being fair. This is about being honest with yourself and others, darlings. Do I have to remind you what your life gets like when you let things get out of balance because you are lying to yourself? Yeah, that. Let’s not go there again, okay? Stand up for yourself but be honest about why.

VIRGO QUEEN OF BUTTONS (COINS) [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]What makes you feel secure? What makes you feel enough? What makes [/inlinetweet]you know beyond a doubt that you are a capable, confident human being? Not sure? Make a list. Sure? Write it down anyway for future reference. You are going to be handed some things to fix this week. Don’t worry. It’s because others trust your ability and more than that? They trust your generosity. Not a bad week to teach them to fish.

LIBRA SEVEN OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Sometimes you buy into the illusion when you should [/inlinetweet]be working to see reality. Stop babying yourself. Make smart, healthy choices about what you do and who you know. Time to get your head out of the clouds, honey. There’s so much life here in reality. Won’t you join us? You can dream a bit! We all should. Just this week you need to get grounded rather than float about in your pretty, pretty head.

SCORPIO THE HIEROPHANT [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Your spiritual self needs attending to please. Sometimes we drift [/inlinetweet]away from what soothes our soul. Please apply the balm of whatever spirituality you follow. Make sure you are paying attention to your own personal rules and boundaries. This could be a week where you or someone else crosses those lines already drawn. For your own inner peace, stick to your rules, please.

SAGITTARIUS DEVIL [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Now, now, my beloved Archers, let’s not let this week turn into [/inlinetweet]one where your uninhibited self creates so much chaos that you upend your own apple cart. Focus on what you can control versus getting angry about what you can’t control. The whole world isn’t going to be as honest as you are, Sagittarian. You can’t force that on them, I’m sorry to say. Focus on what you can control to win this week.

CAPRICORN ACE OF WANDS [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]You are so ready for a break from all the work. Good news! Looks like some [/inlinetweet]opportunities for travel are going to come up for you. Maybe you can’t do them right now, but you can put them on your wish list. A good thing this week is to start something new. Maybe an exercise program that takes your mind off your workload? I recommend something fun like Zumba or Laughter Yoga. Shake it up, Cappies.

Have you made the decision to break free from the patterns you are in? To work on joy seeking? Let’s get started today to create a plan for you that takes you from feeling alone to feeling alive. Set up your Joy Recalibration today.
