Blast that darned Mercury retrograde! I'm getting a late start on the Tarotscopes and for a moment I even considered not posting them. But then I kicked my butt into gear and said "no excuses"!! The first week of Merc retro always seems to be the hardest for me.. it just puts me in this blah feeling of not wanting to do all that much but veg out! Ok, actually I just want to be a lazy Lucy but that really doesn't help to accomplish much and then I end up kicking myself even harder to get motivated again. The funny thing is I actually took the time to get my workout done yesterday (which has been off and on again lately) and this morning I woke up early and went for a jog! So all is not completely lost! And I really enjoy when Mercury is retrograde about 2 weeks in since it seems like I usually end up finishing up projects and actually putting myself ahead of things for a change! I had meant to write something up about this retrograde cycle, and maybe I still will since we're only a day into it, but I know that there will be a lot of reflection that happens at this time with it being in Pisces about what we are going to want to create for ourselves on a deeper and more lasting level. I think this has to do with Saturn being retrograde as well! But anyways, before I keep blabbering on... enjoy this week's Tarotscopes!
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)- With so many planets hanging out in your 12th house of loneliness right now, it's not surprising this card showed up! Things could be a little frustrating this week, especially if you don't want to face the music with things! Even if that means you need to let go of something you don't want to. "Duct tape" only fixes something so many times before you need to trash it! Try not to go at things completely alone though. You have the resources to get some good advice, you just need to actually take it! Allow yourself to let others in to help!
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)- Your ruling planet Venus enters into your 11th house of hopes and dreams on Monday and Justice follows the Wheel of Fortune that you received last week! While you may not have come to any conclusions on where things are headed yet, you'll have plenty of discussions this week to see what the best course of action is. Someone that can be objective will help you to realize your wants and needs, and this may even come with a reconciliation if things had previously been strained! Just remember your part in things too and face your responsibilities if you want the best for everyone!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)- It's time for you to get a break! Now that your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde in your 10th house of ambition you'll be able to see this week that you don't need to try and push things in order to get ahead! It's better if you're able to give fully of yourself rather than it being less because you're totally drained! Saturn's retrograde energy in your 6th house of routines has been showing you that what you're doing isn't bringing the results you really want. Take this week to re-group and make a new plan to bring about any changes you want!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)- The week starts off with a Full Moon in Virgo, your 3rd house of thought, and with Mercury being retrograde in your 9th house of ideals, the connection between what you want and what you need are starting to become a LOT clearer! You might even realize that you already have it all and maybe your moody Cancer self just has been over-thinking things a little! (I'm a Cancer, so believe me, I can relate!) Even if you're feeling like you're not sure where things are headed, you're at least going to be content with where things are at for a little bit! It's the attitude of gratitude!
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)- You could come across as the cowardly lion this week! The Virgo Full Moon may have given you pause to think that maybe you're just not "good enough". Or you might just not be ready to take the lead with things and face the responsibility of your actions! Whatever the scenario, just remember to stay realistic with what you want and don't let things get too far out of reach or you might need to take a whole new route if you delay your opportunities! Your faith will be tested this week, but as long as you are willing to stand strong, you'll be able to make it through!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)- Last week you took a good look at yourself and now that your planetary ruler Mercury is retrograde in your 7th house of relationships, this week it's all about where you stand with others! But you're going to need to be careful with how you approach things or you might come across as a little condescending! You might be thinking that you have the right way to go about things, but that doesn't mean everyone is going to agree with you or follow your lead. Don't alienate yourself if you're feeling stressed. Reach out to someone you trust if you need a heart to heart, or just to vent!
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)- The bonus of this card is that at least the troubling stuff is over with and now is a time to heal! With your ruling planet Venus newly moved into your 6th house of routines, you'll be able to see the truth in situations. Though with Mercury being retrograde there also, you might not be ready to let go of the past just yet and may be replaying situations over in your head AND heart! Don't wait for others to change or make attempts to put in their effort. Put faith in yourself in knowing you have the ability to move forward for something even better!
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)- You've been able to move past your emotions, maybe a little too well! And this week it seems like you could be out for blood! While it's great to have your eye on the prize, you don't need to use underhanded methods to get there. Especially if it involves those you care about! Things may seem like they are rapidly changing and you could be anxious to come to the finish line with it all! Make sure you're really wanting what you're trying to work towards. You don't want to realize that it wasn't and have any regrets! Sometimes there are no "take backs"!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)- Be forewarned this week, you might need to draw those purse strings a little tighter! Responsibilities might feel like they're overpowering you and it could seem as though others are putting too many demands on you. Your ruling planet Jupiter is currently in your 7th house of relationships in Gemini and Gemini's ruler Mercury is retrograde in your 4th house of home and stability! If you feel domestic bliss is slipping away, don't take it out on others. Put your focus on what you can do to improve the situation. Now isn't the time to play the blame game, everyone has to do their fair share!
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)- You've come to a sense of completion! But remember that just because one thing is ending, a new phase is about to begin! Your ruling planet Saturn is slow moving so it'll be a while before it changes sign, but if we look to the other planets, many are currently in your 3rd house of thought. You're confident in the choices you've been making and that you're headed in the right direction! The decisions you've made are definitely life changing, possibly even for others, but you have the confidence and support to see things through. You're looking at the future with wide eyed optimism!
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)- With so many planets in your 2nd house of self-worth, it's a little easy to see how you would be so worried about what's going to happen next! Though you usually try not to burden others with your feelings, try not to take all the responsibility on yourself and let things get the better of you. Everything might not be completely in place yet, but they're at least starting to get better and the worst truly is over! And besides it's all in a matter of perspective, right? There's no need to keep yourself in a place of hopelessness! Let yourself be the light in the darkness!
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)- You might be feeling a sense of practicality this week. And since the majority of the planets are in your sign, along with Mercury being retrograde in your sign, you're utilizing this energy to bring about stability that's further motivated with your secondary ruling planet Jupiter being in your 4th house of security! Just don't overextend your efforts or you could find yourself burnt out before you get finished. And make sure the reasoning you're putting all this effort in for yourself and not because you're looking for approval from others. The recognition will come naturally by what you're able to achieve, not from unfulfilled promises!
I hope you enjoyed this week's Tarotscopes, even if the energy might be a little haywire the next week and weeks following! And if you's like a more in depth reading on how these energies will be affecting you, feel free to send me a message at facebook or my email!
Many Blessings and have a great week everyone!
