I have been meaning to start posting weekly Tarotscopes again! And since I'm currently working on Weekend Lovescopes over at LivePerson, why not get them going now?! I really like doing a blend of Tarot and Astrology.. it's always pleasantly surprising when I draw a Tarot card that is specifically tied to the sign I'm reading. Though when you do blend them together, it is usually not all THAT surprising I guess to see them link up in some ways through planetary combinations. "As above, so below"... symbolism and synchronicity go hand and hand! ;) The images I have accompanying are from the Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti. I have been using these cards primarily as my general reading deck for the last 5 years.. I absolutely LOVE the artwork on them! I hope you enjoy and please feel free to send me any messages at my email or facebook.
Aries (Mar 21 - April 19)- This week will be overflowing with joy and exciting times! Enjoy any parties or celebrations that might come about. If you have been working on a project, it might be time to toast your achievements; or if you've been putting off that project, NOW is the time to get going on it! This card also shows gratitude and the healing power of true unselfish love. Emotionally you may feel more connected to people in a humanitarian way. You're ready to shake things up and anyone in your network is sure to reap the benefits! Anything you put your mind to this week will be positive!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)- Your emotions and intuition might get the better of you this week. You will need to try and keep yourself in check and not overreact to the situations you encounter. Decisions are best to be waited on at this time until you have the full facts! It might be tough to resist making up your mind though, you do tend to be a little stubborn! ;) Connections with others will be negotiable, those in your circle, know you well and understand where you're coming from! You'll need to really open up though if you're going to transform things, otherwise you might get stuck in the same pattern.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)- Now can be a very transformational time for you! This card shows that your deepest desires are being realized. Your cup is overrunning and you are wanting to burst out into the world and make your mark! Fulfillment in many ways is possible and you could just possibly find yourself with a profitable income from a hobby you love. Share in that love, give to the Universe!! At a spiritual level, this card may be seen as a cup of knowledge. It may be feeling as though your karmic slate has been cleaned. You may just delve into other realms this week and learn something new!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)- We've all heard the saying.. Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but it gets you nowhere. And that's exactly what this week's theme is going to be! Nine of Swords can show needless worry, but who can blame you when you're expected to have the answers all the time! If someone gives you a hard time about it, you might need to remind them of your own feelings. Things have been difficult, but you may just need to learn to ride the waves of change and take an alternative path to get to your good fortunes.
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)- You may be opinionated, but what's wrong with that? Well, if you're not willing to listen to other's; plenty! Everyone knows you're capable, you don't need to go out searching for verification. This card may be showing to have more faith in yourself and stop relying on the exterior. It seems that you may be failing to find the value in yourself. Take the time to remember what truly makes YOU happy and has you putting in the productive effort you've been looking for. Once you remember where you've started from, you'll see how far you've come and where you're headed!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)- This card can be viewed in so many ways.. but with this week, I see it as being very hopeful and encouraging. You know you can do anything that you set your mind to and have been taking control of things lately. You're totally driven at this point and some people might see you as being a little bit of a workaholic right now. You just want to get ahead and know that if you want it, you need to go for it! If anyone is trying to sway you from your path, you'll need to deal with it. You know you're moving forward in a positive direction!
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)- Finding balance could be extremely tough this week. You might need to slow things down a little, or you're at the other extreme and need to light a fire and get moving!! Either way, you're the one in control of how you're feeling. Just don't try to extend that control out to your environment or you could end up with an unexpected backlash! Now is the time to figure out what's really important. There may need to be something you have to "sacrifice" or give up in order to get back on track. You may be having to accept some advice you've previously given.
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)- You may have been called clever.. but was there a sarcastic tone? Right now it's all about choices for you! Are you being fair to yourself? Too fair to others? Your heart is calling out to you, but are you going to listen? It's OK if you want to continue on this path, but you know where it'll lead. You'll need to balance your thoughts, words, AND actions! Be accountable for yourself and hold others to the standards you expect.. unless you want to keep making excuses for them! You have the capacity to really heal yourself this week if that's what you want.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)- This card is showing the support system you've built for yourself! You're working towards a common goal and are feeling positive. Balance is being achieved as you keep communication flowing off your emotional needs. Remember that in partnerships there are two different energies; reacting, interacting, but you both won't have the same experiences. Sometimes it may be difficult to understand their differences. But that's your lesson this week, to understand not everyone is going to have the same feeling or reaction to a situation.. just as how you react to their reaction could really make just as much a BIG difference!
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)- You might be tapping your energy reserves this week. Focus will be on practical matters, or maybe someone will be needing rescued again! How are others supposed to know you're stressed if you always put up the front that you can handle it? It's not being selfish if your health is being put at risk! You will need to voice your concerns that are specific to the here and now and not what's happened in the past. Taking this new approach will be able to finally bring you the peace and happiness you've been looking for! Just don't go looking for the drama again! ;)
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)- If you've been disconnected from others, that's about to change! It's time to let go of the fear if you have been holding yourself back from truly immersing yourself into an experience. Reconnect with your inner child and remember what you really love about life! Have things really gotten so bad that you're willing to compromise in order to keep the peace? You'll be taking a look back and contemplating things this week and see what needs fixing before taking any action. Anything that has been proven not to work will be let go and you'll feel freer than you have in a while!
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)- You might find yourself putting your foot in your mouth a few times this week! Be prepared to take it if you're going to dish it out. Question if you're causing your own problems! Are you going to take on the world by yourself and what's the cause anyways? Allow others to give you their opinion without giving the impression you've already figured it all out! You might just see things in a different way than you ever expected. There's no reason to let yourself self destruct over your pride. You can achieve what you want if you're willing to accept the help.
