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 “So this week Arwen told me compassion is a shark. What the heck? #tarot #seekjoy y’all.”]

Let’s recalibrate your joy. If you have fifteen minutes, I can help. What’s holding you back?

I hope you will join me this week as I talk with about the number one thing that kills your affirmation work.

Have you seen Tierney Sadler’s The Deck of 1000 Spreads: Your Tarot Toolkit for Creating the Perfect Spread for Any Situation yet? I just got my copy. It’s really good for those times when I get stuck on what and how to ask the Tarot.

Also, if you are a lover of new Tarot, I invite you to check out Lupa Greenwolf’s Indiegogo project for her Tarot of Bones. It’s already fully funded (in less than a week). I predict this deck is going to be one you will wish you had gotten in on. I’m eagerly waiting for the finished product. Yes, I bought two decks. You know me! I like backups.

CARD OF THE WEEK: KING OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]It’s a great week to flex our emotional muscles. Make sure that [/inlinetweet]you are focusing on compassion for self as well as compassion for others. We grow exponentially when we give to others with an open, loving heart. Imagine your compassionate self is a shark–you must keep compassion moving to keep it fresh and alive within you.

AQUARIUS THE HIEROPHANT [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Sometimes spiritual needs require travel. You already know those needs require [/inlinetweet]fierce focus. Bow down to your own spiritual self. Honor what you need. Make time for filling that need. This card urges you to incorporate your personal spirituality in more of your every day life. This is a card that requires your attention.

PISCES KNIGHT OF SWORDS [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Magpie energy may overwhelm you this week. It’s okay to say no to all the pretty[/inlinetweet], shiny new things. Get your mind into play on things that are already within your reach. No need to gather more ideas, tech toys, pens, etc. A better use of your efforts will be to focus on working the ideas you have, resetting the toys and rewriting the stories alrady started.

ARIES THE FOOL [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Taking risks can feel foolish sometimes. But this week’s challenge is for you to do stupid [/inlinetweet]things and make people believe you are smart. You know the challenges, the constraints, the choices. Make the ones that have the biggest payoff for you. Brashness will serve you well this week. Do tackle something new if that opportunity should arise.

Animalis Os Fortuna Queen of SwordsTAURUS QUEEN OF SWORDS [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Whose needs must be met now? What do you require [/inlinetweet]from those in your life? Are they not focused on your needs? Ask yourself this. Are you giving them the space to see that you have needs? Are you letting them focus on you or are you doing what you always do? Taking care of them first? Let them have this opportunity to grow by letting them understand your own need.

GEMINI THE SUN [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Splash a litte more in those puddles. Laugh a little harder at that viral video because [/inlinetweet]self-love is super sexy. When you indulge in the joy of the work, the laughter of your life, you are going to get seen–get noticed. Like someone is shining a big spotlight on you, your week is going to be all about showing your stuff. So shake that sexy butt. Shine!

CANCER FOUR OF PENTACLES [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Oh my yes, you do work hard for the money, don’t you. But have you [/inlinetweet]stopped to consider what you are getting for all that hard work? Money is nice. Kudos are terrific. However, if you aren’t allowing yourself a few niceties as reward for your efforts, you may not be reaping the full benefit. Don’t hold on so tight to your wealth that you can’t share a little, mmmkay?

LEO TEN OF WANDS [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]So many things need to be done. It’s a great week for you to create a master to-do [/inlinetweet]list as well as daily “must get done” lists. Passion will see you through but the Universe says you may be bone-tired by the end of this week. So on those “must get done” lists? Yeah, make sure you include some down time to avoid mandatory down time. You follow me?

VIRGO TWO OF PENTACLES [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Don’t be surprised when you get caught between a rock and a really [/inlinetweet] awesome place. Even the rock is going to be one of those “hell yeah” challenges that rev your earth self up, Virgo. Choose the one that requires more nibbling than full mouthfuls. Your energy this week may be best suited to gathering intel over ground force strikes. Hooyah!

LIBRA THREE OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Social gatherings are going to be coming in fast. Take some time to decide now how [/inlinetweet]much energy you have to give to that. Your friends want to be around you because you are a charming companion. Just make sure you don’t party yourself into missing work and other obligations. Have fun, but monitor your own personal need for quiet, please.

SCORPIO FIVE OF SWORDS [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Are you sharing the pretty? Even peacocks squabble,[/inlinetweet] darling. Don’t be so focused on your own self-worth that you lose your focus on others. They need to feel pretty too. Make sure you aren’t being so focused on you that it turns into selfishness. Others won’t appreciate that energy. You may find that some walk away. So let’s share the pretty this week, okay?

SAGITTARIUS TWO OF SWORDS [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Crow magic is old magic. But you may find yourself split between wanting [/inlinetweet]new as well as old magic. Make sure you don’t get locked into the place of making choices. Sometimes you get stuck on what to choose so you lose out on both things. This is a good week to set your mind up to make choices rather than dither. Getting honest with yourself is the best path for this week.

Animalis Os Fortuna Justice

CAPRICORN JUSTICE [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]Balance is not a good idea this week. It’s pretty much an [/inlinetweet]imperative for you. Mind your p’s and q’s so that you don’t add a legal battle to your week. And if you do get a ticket, be honest about the cause. When you get out of balance at work, it affects home. And vice versa, sweeties. A wide stance makes you harder to knock down.

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.

When Ravens Fly Alone

I long to be a modified hermit where I see only people who bring me joy and read only things that bring me joy. But because of the world I live in, I must be a person who understands that sometimes I have to dig deep for the joy.

#affirmation Today I carry my own light. Today I set my eyes on my own prize. Today I move forward knowing I am the only one who knows my way. Loved and loving, I love each of you. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.

Here is the Hermit from the Animalis Os Fortuna. Strangely this is not one of my favorite cards from this deck. I am not sure why but I think it is because it doesn’t clearly show the theme of the deck.

Still, it’s a nice representation of the energy of the Hermit card. Focusing on something only it can see, the Raven flies off. It is on a solitary journey but it carries the light in the hopes others will see and follow.

Sometimes it feels that way to me. Especially when I read of horrific things in the news…most especially then. I want to set my filters so I see nothing in the news.

And I know that’s not a great attitude for how will I know what to avoid if I don’t hear the news, right? It’s that dichotomy that is speaking to me today.

I long to be a modified hermit where I see only people who bring me joy and read only things that bring me joy. But because of the world I live in, I must be a person who understands that sometimes I have to dig deep for the joy.

[Tweet “What do you do when you are digging deep for the joy?”] When your focus is pulled away from your joy journey? What are some of your tricks?

SPREAD: Chloe’s Heart’s Desire

She also created a spread based on the fairy tale. I had to try it! Beauty and the Beast is not one of the fairy tales that made it into my Fairy Tale Tarot Spreads e-book.

Yesterday’s blog hop was, as per usual, chock-full of useful spreads and amazing posts. One of my favorite Tarot bloggers offered up the myth of Beauty and the Beast.

She also created a spread based on the fairy tale. I had to try it! Beauty and the Beast is not one of the fairy tales that made it into my Fairy Tale Tarot Spreads e-book.

Chloe’s Heart’s Desire

1) What is my heart’s desire for this turn of the Wheel/at this time?
2) What price will I have to pay for it?
3) What lesson will I learn in the process?

Using Zaheroux’s stark Animalis Os Fortunas deck, here is my reading.

AnimalisOsFortuna_3cards0011) What is my heart’s desire for this turn of the Wheel/at this time?

Moon: I want to dive into my fantasy more. My fantasy being the ability to write fantasy. 😀 My writing partner and I have recently started producing again. We had a 2 year dry spell with some writing but nothing that drove towards finish. It’s an illusionary task, the business of writing.

I have to let the moon guide me which can be dark and scary at times because the path isn’t clearly lit.

2) What price will I have to pay for it?

Ace of Pentacles: I may have to give up other business opportunities. There may be growth that I have to avoid in order to focus on the writing.

Sorry. I have to say that this feels like a positive answer. I see it more as income helping me not have to pay for it. I will have opportunity for growth that will support. It may be that my price to pay will be my disbelief that I can ever be a truly successful writer.

Yep, I think I’m standing in my own way again.

3) What lesson will I learn in the process?

Emperor: That I am in charge of my own creativity. that I can take care of business by writing and producing. That the proof really is in the pudding, chickens.

This card is the one who takes care of his/her domain. He rules with a firm hand. I will learn how to keep myself on track. I will learn that small steps every day towards my goal will win the day.

Thanks to Chloe for this insightful spread!

What about you? What is your heart’s desire?

How about this spread as your own journal prompt?

Don’t have a tarot deck? Take advantage of my last week of 15 minute readings for $25 and we can do this one together. Remember that prices are going up 10/1.

  • VIRGO JUDGMENT Examine your current situation. Time to rise up. Time to move beyond. Time to reach for the next level. Get moving.
  • LIBRA CHARIOT Pace yourself. You need to focus on the path in front of you. Don’t be pulled astray. Don’t sacrifice forward movement.
  • SCORPIO THE LOVERS When someone knows you inside and out, they don’t worry about the bumps. They are in it for the long haul. Are you?
