Happy Earth Day!!!! And this upcoming Friday is also Arbor Day!! I absolutely LOVE April because of Earth Day, Arbor Day, and because it's National Gardening Month!
Earth Day really should be EVERY day because we owe it to ourselves to have the best home that we can have! Clean air, clean water, clean food, and clean energy!!! And plants are a great way to help with clean air! In fact here is a list of 15 house plants that can help to improve the air in your home. If you'd like to move to some outdoor gardening, I'd like you to take a look at ways to attract pollinators. Pollinators are the bees (which we know are in a HUGE decline!), butterflies (who DOESN'T like butterflies?!), insects, and birds. Here is a fabulous resource from the Natural Resources Conservation Service of plants that encourage native pollinators! If you would like to help in a small and QUICK (and FREE) way, just click on one of the buttons on the right side of the page. EVERY click helps and there's some really awesome products you can buy on the pages as well! While I could go on and on about conservation, this post is for Tarotscopes! So, I'll save the hundreds of ways that I know of that we can help our home for another post and let you read what's in store this coming week!!
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)- Now that the Sun and your ruling planet Mars have moved into your 2nd house of resources, this week will bring about some dynamic transformations for you! While you were able to move things forward for yourself while things were in your sign, now that they are in Taurus, the feeling is more about sustaining what you create! Venus' movement into Taurus as well has you feeling the passion you put into your relationships and endeavors will bring about more stability for the long term! Just be sure that you aren't closing yourself off to other options or to other's opinions or you may miss out on an opportunity or inspiration this week that will further your advancement.
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)- While the focus had been in Aries and your 12th house of karma you took a real hard look at what you wanted in your life. And now that the Sun and your ruling planet Venus shifted into your sign last week, this week has you feeling it's time to take the first step to making a difference. BUT, you're at a crossroads of knowing which path is going to get you the best results. And you can be a little results oriented in your thinking. While there will still be obstacles to face this week, it's important to take the first step in moving yourself forward in what you're wanting. ANY step is better than no step!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)- This week may leave you feeling somewhat confused on where things are headed. Your ruling planet Mercury is in your 11th house of hopes and dreams, but the dynamic life-force Sun is in your 12th house of subconscious. Life is in a perpetual motion and cyclic. The End is the Beginning is the End! You don't want to miss what's going on presently and move too quickly to the end result, for what you think is the end is merely another beginning if you look at the bigger picture! You'll need to be careful you're not trying to convince yourself that something outside of yourself is what you need to make things "better". Take your time. YOU hold the keys!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)- The Virgo energy that starts off the week for the Moon leaves you feeling you need to find your path. But you need to look before you leap! Don't lose sight of what's right in front of you or you could end up with an entirely different outcome than what you've expected. Now is not the time to be selfish or let your pride get the better of you! You'll need to support of others to get the results you're looking for. Be thankful for the opportunities you're given and don't be upset if you feel you make a mistake. We have to make mistakes in order to grow and learn!
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)- With the Sun newly in your 10th house of status, this week you might be putting a little too much stock about what others think about you! If you're looking for some sort of acceptance, find it WITHIN rather than externally. Others might not be willing to deal with your erratic feelings and it could cause unnecessary arguments if you think things need to be "all or nothing" and you could come to the conclusion that certain people don't really need to be in your life! It'll be really important to have some moderation with things! Take a deep breath and allow yourself to trust your intuition and heart more than what your head may be telling you!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)- You can expect this week to be a little nerve wracking for you as your ruling planet Mercury is in your 8th house of transformation. You're tired of feeling like the victim or that you're needing to take on others responsibilities and know you're meant for better things! Since the 8th house is also one of shared resources, you can take this time to make what's wrong right and get things back on track. But it can't just be through your own efforts and the responsibility needs to be equal! Try not to give in to negative thinking. Things may look grim, but you know you'll be able to do what is necessary to turn it around!
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)- Your ruling planet Venus is in her other comfy sign that she rules, Taurus, and is in your 8th house of shared resources. This week is going to bring you some stability! Whether it be financially from your own hard work, which pentacles are good at showing; or if it comes in a way that you can put your faith in someone else to bring you the assistance that you need! Either way you're going to have a "helping hand" and will be feeling optimistic at where things are headed! Now is a time of ideal balance on all levels; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual!
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)- Things definitely are working in your favor this week even if you may be questioning your decisions! While your modern ruling planet Pluto is currently retrograde in your 2nd house of self-worth, your traditional ruling planet Mars, along with the Sun and Venus, has moved into your 7th house of relationships. Others will show you how much you are appreciated and will be giving you some recognition for your efforts! You may be feeling a sense of nostalgia or that you've come full circle with things and this brings about a sense on gratitude. Keep faith in your own struggles while knowing that you are working for the greater good!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)- You may be facing some disappointment this week. And with this card and your ruling planet Jupiter in your 7th house of relationships, it's more than likely going to end up being with someone else. BUT, with the Sun now in your 6th house of routine it might be reminding you that change can be good! It's time to let go of the past and put your focus onto making things better. You'll need to face things head on and take responsibility in your own actions. Even if you're not entirely sure where things are headed, as long as you're making a conscious effort to make a change, you'll be happy with the results.
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)- As your ruling planet Saturn is currently still retrograde in your 11th house of hopes and dreams and the Sun, Venus and Mars have now moved into your 5th house of fun, you might be feeling a little "stuck" this week! Things will be beyond your control and now is one of those times where you'll need to take a step back from trying to force your way. You may need to reach out to really get a better perspective, and this may even mean apologizing if the one you need to talk to has been wronged by you in the past. But with their forgiveness you'll feel more at peace and at one with the world!
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)- Now that the focus has shifted more into your 4th house of stability, you'll feel as though your destiny is taking shape this week! You will find yourself with a renewed sense of faith and even if circumstances that you're unsure of come about, you'll be able to handle them with ease! You'll see that by giving into things and letting the Universe provide the answers, the more they seem to work out more in your favor! If you've been needing a fresh start, now could be the time to give things a spin! The Wheel is always turning and giving new opportunities; it's up to you to decide which ones to take!
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)- The Moon's emotional pull in your 7th house of relationships at the beginning of the week along with the energy focused in your 3rd house of thought leaves you with feeling a greater and deeper connection to others! This will allow you to open up fully and put your trust in those around you. Being able to meet your head with your heart will allow you to see how grateful you are to the experiences you receive from others and how you can appreciate your own contributions. Even when there might be a disappointment, rejoice in the struggles and learn what you can from them as they could be blessings in disguise!
