"All men are created equal, it is only men themselves who place themselves above equality." ~David Allen Coe "Before God we are all equally wise - and equally foolish."~Albert Einstein
Yes these may be a little late, but I was busy with homeschooling most of the day with the kids teaching them about equality and some more history lessons that I thought were important to know.. and besides, sometimes I run more on "Pagan Standard Time"! LOL! With today being Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I figured we needed a little bit of a "political" sort of image to go along with the intro! I thought this one was rather humorous, but also makes a lot of sense at times considering the inequality that is still being placed upon people. Late last week a group I'm in was asked to share what their core values were.. which didn't end up going over so great. Mostly because there are still some fragmented issues that are being worked out. Now, we might not all agree or believe in the same things in life.. but I really hope someday that we all can come to some sort of agreement to RESPECT one another for our own beliefs and decisions in life. Not everyone is going to want to walk in steel toe boots, just as not everyone is going to want to walk in designer heels. But hey, to each their own!!
You might've noticed I switched up the cards once again too!! I absolutely LOVE this deck! In fact, before I started using the Gilded Tarot, I used this deck, the Robin Wood Tarot for about 10 years. It really had NEVER failed me and always consistently gave me exceptional readings! So I just wanted to share it's imagery for yet another shining example of a great deck you might want to add to your collection! And on to the Tarotscopes....
Aries (Mar 21 - April 19)- You're starting to realize that you need some patience in getting the improvement you're looking for. Things aren't just going to happen overnight! Which means you're probably going to make some mistakes, but that's OK! You just need to keep going and learn what isn't going to work for you. This doesn't mean to give up on any ongoing projects.. you might just need to work at things in a different way! Take some time to reorganize. Your circumstances are on the way to being better, but you cant assert your way on to things. Be consistent and diligent in your efforts and you'll see your perseverance pay off!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)- If anything, this week could have you questioning things once again! IS it really worth the fight? You might really have to go at it alone at this point. Just what is it you're really wanting anyways? If you feel this is something you have to prove to yourself, take a look back and see that the proof has already been there in the past. You may be knocked down, but don't count yourself down for the count yet! You're only defeated if you believe you are. You have the strength and willpower to carry on, you just need to be focused on your reason why!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)- Things are really starting to come in to focus for you! You feel alert and mentally stimulated for any challenges that might come about. But try not to get too far ahead of yourself.. you might be ready to take things to the next level and put things into action, but that doesn't mean you're not setting yourself up for creating some drama. As like last week, you need to go with the flow and allow yourself more of a reaction to the situations you're in. Have the courage and faith within yourself that things are moving in the right direction and any anxieties will easily clear up!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)- You've been talking the talk, and now you're walking the walk! You'll definitely see a difference in yourself this week and really realize just what it is you're capable of! Though you might want to run with this new found energy rather than just walk. Either way, your motivation levels are going to be pretty high this week as you continue to push yourself to achieve more! And why not be excited for the opportunities you've created for yourself?! This may have been something you've been working at in the past, but never really put the effort in. NOW is the time to get that recognition, so GO FOR IT!
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)- Cheer up Charlie! It's not the time to get lost in the melodrama or worry about how things could of been.. there's nothing you can do to change that now. But if you get lost in this world of doom and gloom, it's only going to be harder to get yourself into the light and get moving again towards what is any sort of optimism. How about the glass being neither half full or half empty?! There's just some sort of fluid in it!! At least it's not completely gone! Life is only going to become what you make it. Make it BETTER!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)- You might've seen this week coming from a mile away! But you could need to watch yourself though if you feel someone is going about things in a way you didn't feel they would. Maybe they just changed their mind!? But is your opinion really needed, or are you just frustrated, or maybe even jealous, because of a decision YOU may have made? Just as they might have changed their mind, there's always room for you to change your thoughts on something as well. You could need to take a hard look at things though to come to the conclusion on what's right for yourself, just don't judge others.
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)- What an interesting card to get for you Libra's this week, since you really seem to strive for balance (or harmony, equality, etc.)! This could be showing you that it's not always the easiest to achieve.. sometimes something "bad" may have to come about to really have some "good" happen. Something may be causing you to be stagnant in moving forward. This really could even be, most likely, yourself. Be open to receiving ideas that you might not resonate with, but are able to take away a new understanding from. Be open in seeing the beauty that can be in anything and everything!
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)- Sometimes you can be exceptionally brilliant, but just lack the discipline needed to carry through. And then you find it just as easy to give up. But fear not, as you should be able to find a way to come up with a solution to anything that could throw you off track this week! You might just end up with some extra inspiration too. Just make sure you're tackling things one at a time though and aren't taking up too many things you won't be able to handle or you could just throw it all in the wastebasket and move on completely from finishing any of it!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)- Alright, so things aren't turning out the way you had hoped for. At all! In fact, you probably ignored some warnings in the first place, but had really hoped for the best! It's not your fault, but now you're going to have to put some extra effort in to making things different. Otherwise, you know you'll be nowhere even close to what you were working towards! Upright this card is all about your dreams coming true.. but reversed, it's quite the opposite. So unless you want things to continue on this path, you're going to need to be the one to make it right.
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)- It might be time to sit down and go over your finances, or maybe just your attitude towards money. Make sure you're not just spending to spend and are really putting your money towards the things that are important and needed. If you're not overindulging yourself, make sure someone else isn't taking advantage of you.. Simultaneously, you might be being unreasonable towards someone if you think they owe you. Are you absolutely positive they do, or are you just being greedy and expecting it?! This week may really cause you some ruffled feathers, especially if you realize you're attitude towards money and possessions has turned unhealthy.
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)- You may once again feel stability coming back! Like the 4 walls of a house that holds up the roof, you're taking a moment to BREATHE and just reconnecting with yourself. Things may not have been completely resolved, but you're allowing yourself to see that you'll still be able to give yourself a break without totally stressing yourself out to the max to come to a conclusion. Give yourself the time to re-evaluate things and see if you can find a way to get yourself a little more time if that is what is needed to improve the situation you're in. You KNOW you'll have the answer sooner or later!
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)- This week you might feel as though it is almost the same as last week.. and it's not even Groundhog's Day yet! Are you not wanting to move forward? There's no shame in bringing the past into the present if you are able to learn and grow from it.. but if it's making you drag your feet or having you go back into old habits, you might want to ask yourself WHY? You have the wisdom and strength to know what will bring you happiness, but you will be the one that is in control of how much you'll allow yourself to experience it.
As always, if you'd like a reading you can send me a message at facebook or my email. Hope you all have a fabulous week!
