May 17-23, 2015 Tarotscopes

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. 😀 )

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. “]

My Chakra reading can help you target areas that need some tweaking. Let’s look at your energy centers to see which ones need that extra push to get them in alignment. Book your hour now.

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)

Daughters of the Moon Nammu Mother of Cups
Daughters of the Moon

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.

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?

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.

[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.

Do you like Regency historicals? What about paranormals? This book is really good. I bought it when it first came out. Just saw that it’s free on  Amazon (at least today 4/19/2015). Enjoy!

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.

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

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 Dr. Tandy Elisala 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.

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: 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?

Animalis Os Fortuna Two of Pentacles
Animalis Os Fortuna

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
Animalis Os Fortuna

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.

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 journey travel buddy.

[Tweet “Got my @tarotscopes read by Arwen. What did yours say? Need a 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?

I’m so excited! I read Seraphina a few years ago. Been waiting and waiting ANNNNNNNNND waiting for the sequel. Just heard that the sequel came out last month. FIST PUMP. 😀 What’s your favorite genre to read?

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!

Granny Jones Australian Tarot Ace of Swords
Granny Jones Australian Tarot

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.

Granny Jones Australian Tarot Queen of Buttons
Granny Jones Australian Tarot

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.

Granny Jones Australian Tarot The Devil
Granny Jones Australian Tarot

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.

Tarotscopes for March 29 – April 4, 2015

Gorgon Tarot  Hierophant
Gorgon 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 “Using the Gorgon #Tarot, Arwen tells us all about this week. #Seekjoy y’all. Pass it on!”]

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 book has been so useful to me. Instead of tackling mindfulness in huge chunks, Kate Sciandra gives small bite-sized pieces. Her practice of building a habit of mindfulness is spread out over six weeks so you can learn to layer things in. I found it to be very easy to do even with my busy life. Get this juicy book today.

Did you know you can hear your full monthly Tarotscope here? Check out March’s in-depth joy journey.. April is coming up soon!

CARD OF THE WEEK: THE HIEROPHANT [inlinetweet prefix=”CARD OF THE WEEK” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]All hands on deck. Now hear this. It is time [/inlinetweet]to restablish schedules, boundaries and most importantly, reconnect with your spiritual self. Spirituality can be a mindfully imbibed cup of tea, an intentional ten minutes of prayer, a walk in the woods. It can be going back to the church that calls to you or gathering friends to circle. Whatever your spiritual house looks like, let’s get it in order, okay?

AQUARIUS QUEEN OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”AQUARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Stong intuitive guides show up this week. Will you [/inlinetweet]ignore them or pay attention? Watch for repetitions of symbols. Those are the ones you need to research. Don’t blow things off this week. Your guides are hollering. Will you listen or must they get out the 2×4…again? Celebrate the Divine Feminine and listen to your Universal Mother.

PISCES HIGH PRIESTESS [inlinetweet prefix=”PISCES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Uh oh, little fishies. Secrets are boiling up from the depths. Make sure [/inlinetweet]you don’t tell anyone something that isn’t yours to tell. Avoid gossip and gossips like the plague. You have the Universe’s permission to hold up one finger and say, “No, I can’t hear this right now.” Seek the spiritual depths of your life to attract the highest vibrations.

Gorgon Tarot Ten of Pentacles
Gorgon Tarot

ARIES TEN OF PENTACLES [inlinetweet prefix=”ARIES” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Celebrate the plenty of life. Look at your family, friends, work, home to see [/inlinetweet] how much you really have. Sometimes you get overfocused on the lack, the loss, the “not enough” of life. This week the Universe encourages you to say yes to the life you have. Time to celebrate your joys.

TAURUS KING OF PENTACLES [inlinetweet prefix=”TAURUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Strong financial currents are at work in your world. Are you [/inlinetweet]ready to capitalize on this? Keep your ears open for opportunities to move up in the world. Don’t be surprised if a financial plan unfolds for you that will bring you the wealth you want. Remember wealth is more than money.

GEMINI EIGHT OF WANDS [inlinetweet prefix=”GEMINI” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Now is the time to act. This week puts several opportunities [/inlinetweet]in front of you. Decisions may be hard, but if you dither, you will lose all of them. So grab the one that ignites your passion. The one that takes your breath away just thinking of the possibilities. That’s your ticket this week.

CANCER THE STAR [inlinetweet prefix=”CANCER” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Hold your head up high! You are going to be seen as much as you [/inlinetweet]already see. You are going to light the way for those around you because you do what needs doing. If you’re considering more classes, this card is a nod in that direction. The Star points the way to higher learning and to reaching goals already set.

Gorgon Tarot Wheel of Fortune
Gorgon Tarot

LEO KNIGHT OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”LEO” tweeter=”@Tarotscopes” suffix=”..more #tarot”]Oh you’re a dreamer, but like John says, you’re not the only one. You [/inlinetweet]may need to rein it in just a bit so that you aren’t wandering all over the place this week. Daydreams give you a much needed break but don’t let them stop you from doing what needs to be done.

VIRGO THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE [inlinetweet prefix=”VIRGO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]When someone offers you a cookie, take it. This week will be all about [/inlinetweet]people wanting to give you things. Take what works for you but don’t say yes to everything. And show others how to take chances. Your fortunes are looking good this week, Virgo. Spin that wheel.

LIBRA ACE OF CUPS [inlinetweet prefix=”LIBRA” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Ready for love? Ready for your heart to be full? This [/inlinetweet]is your week. If you hold your heart out there, someone will notice. Make sure you are looking for those who are also holding their hearts out. Reciprocity is the ticket for your joy this week.

SCORPIO KNIGHT OF PENTACLES [inlinetweet prefix=”SCORPIO” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Sadly things aren’t always black and white. The good news is [/inlinetweet]your money issues will be very clear cut. Someone may try to help you spend your money, but learn to say no. You can’t buy them responsibility. This is a thing they must learn on their own. Cushioning their fall removes feathers from your own nest. Put you first.

Gorgon Tarot Ace of Cups

SAGITTARIUS THE SUN [inlinetweet prefix=”SAGITTARIUS” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”…more #tarot”]Strong family influences take up a lot of your time this week. Will you [/inlinetweet]make time for yourself? You must you know. It’s for your own health. Family does need you, but you do better when you have gotten your rest and eaten right. Let the Sun card be your reminder that you deserve your own time in the sun.

CAPRICORN PAGE OF SWORDS [inlinetweet prefix=”CAPRICORN” tweeter=”@tarotscopes” suffix=”… more #tarot”]Decision making is never hard for a Capricorn, but this week [/inlinetweet]it may be challenging. That’s because your focus may be scatter. Open up to the idea that you can let go of some tasks. There will be others who will pick up the slack. Save yourself for the most interesting projects.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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