Tarotscopes for March 8-14, 2015

Alice Tarot, Two of CupsWelcome 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.

My apologies for this being a day late. My body decided I needed a time out yesterday. As someone cleverly put it, I was going through a DNA upgrade on my birthday. Between you and me? I could have done with the fever, aching body and other physical manifestations.

[Tweet “Wish Arwen a happy birthday by checking out your Tarotscope for this week.”]

Hey you! Tired of being all out-of-sorts? 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?

I’m using my Alice Tarot for this week’s Tarotscopes. It’s such a fun deck–really lovely. You can get yours here.

Here’s a joy-seeker’s tip for you. When life gets shitty, take a time out. One of my favorite “this is my time, dammit” movies is the Rosalind Russell classic, “Auntie Mame”. What’s one of your favorite movies? Tell me in the comments.

CARD OF THE WEEK: TWO OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Time for a tete-a-tete with a [/inlinetweet]heartfriend. Seek out those who bring you the most joy. Avoid those that bring too much mean. When you choose to fill your world with joy, you must leave no room for those who only seek to destroy. Join Alice and the Rabbit for a cuppa this week. Be open to meeting a new friend in a very unusual way. Smiling at strangers is a good way to start.

AQUARIUS KNIGHT OF SWORDS[inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Pay attention to those who encourage you to take flights[/inlinetweet] of fancy. They are your champions even when you cannot visualize it. Let your mind soar to greater heights this week. Eschew those who would anchor you to an unyeilding earth. This week you are meant to fly. Let go of your worries and get your butt to the upper stratosphere this instant! You can send a postcard once you are there.

PISCES KNIGHT OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Dream a little dream with me because[/inlinetweet] it’s a good week for an emotional coffee break. Create moments of silence for yourself so you can indulge in daydreams. They are good for your soul when you are trying to balance an overloaded life. Even five minutes a day can create a buffer in your noisy world. Let this be your week to chase unicorns, drink tea and just goof off a little.

ARIES THE MAGICIAN [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Repeat after me. You are not[/inlinetweet] late. You are not going to fall apart if someone else is late. You have the creative power to fix whatever it is that needs fixing in your life–including yourself. Stop darting down rabbit holes, darling. Time to pick up the tools you already have. Create your safe space by understanding you are the magician in your own life. Not someone else. Stop waiting for them and live for you.

TAURUS NINE OF CUPS[inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Don’t be surprised when someone pops up to tell you[/inlinetweet] how a dream of yours just might come true. Expect the unexpected this week, my Bullish friends. Other hands may seem to be open with offers of rewards. Don’t doubt the wish. Be sure to examine each gift carefully, but accept all that you want. This is not a week for you to be frugal. Accepting a gift with joy and gratitude enriches the giver. Don’t be stingy with your thanks.

GEMINI ACE OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Hmmm, might be a good week to shout, “I’m[/inlinetweet] all in!” Someone wants to know how committed you are to something. Time to say yes or no. Quit dithering because it’s going to hurt them as well as you. You are a strong heart, Gemini. Don’t give yourself to someone who isn’t as strong.You are not here to save anyone. Opening up to love means being strong enough to recieve it as well as give it. I’ve got faith in you!

CANCER THE CHARIOT [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Well now, where will you go this week? I think[/inlinetweet] the possibilities are endless even though the traveling companions might be strange. When you focus your own will on where you want to be, you get there that much faster. Diverting your attention might be fun, but does it really get you where you need to be? My precious Crabs! Stop wasting your time and get back in the driver’s seat.

LEO THE TOWER [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”] Whoopsie! Something comes tumbling down this week. I fear[/inlinetweet] you may be asked to pick up the pieces. However, look closely to make sure you want to put this back together again. Maybe that fell apart for a good reason. You need to analyze why this exploded before you even think about starting over. A new tack may be in order if you want to get to the far shore.

VIRGO KING OF WANDS [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Hey little bat, let me tell you where it’s at. I know[/inlinetweet] you may not want to think about who and what’s gone, but time to clear your mind. By cluttering up your mental attic with old hurts, lost loves and forgotten enemies, you don’t leave room for joy, pleasure and gratitude. Which would you rather cart around in your fabulous top hat, m’dear? Dust out all those unpleasant thoughts. Then replace them with better ones.

LIBRA THREE OF WANDS[inlinetweet prefix=”Libra” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Don’t blame me if you miss out on things because you[/inlinetweet] insist on waiting in the wings. Life is going to give you an open invitation to join in. Whether you take it or not, is on you. Examine why you feel left out. Is it because you refuse to join in? Have they stopped inviting you? Maybe it’s because you said no too many times. Turn it around, honey! Start inviting them. Live, Agnes. LIVE! Time’s a wastin’ so get out there this week. You are amazing!

SCORPIO EIGHT OF WANDS [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Uh oh, sweeties! Don’t be taken in by a pretty face[/inlinetweet], please. This is a good week to examine what is being said to you. Mental manipulation comes in many forms–flattery, guilt are just two. Be strong in the face of those who would try to trick you with shame and blame. You may be a bit more vulnerable to that this week. This is your call to stand up for yourself. Redrawn boundaries are a very good thing.

SAGITTARIUS KING OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”] Who rules your emotions, Archers? You may say[/inlinetweet] it is you, but doublecheck that, please. If you are reacting to other people’s drama, it could be that their llamas are in charge, not you. Don’t make others small to make yourself feel large. Conversely, if someone is doing that to you, please walk away. Don’t engage them. It’s simply not worth it. Let them sink in their own drama without you. Be brave!

CAPRICORN THE MOON [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”] Dreams may be disturbing this week simply because[/inlinetweet] you have a lot on your mind. Remember to write down what stresses you out. Examine it from all sides. Don’t own anything that isn’t yours to own. And don’t let someone else’s illusions or expectation own you. You can indulge in a little fantasy, but do try not to fall down any holes this week. I think it’s a good week to follow your intuition. Practicality matters.

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.
