As much as I had wanted to get them done this week.. it just wasn't happening. Father's Day, electricians came today, tomorrow's my son's 2nd birthday AND his doctor appointment, AND some cabinet guys are showing up tomorrow too! Did I happen to mention I had other deadlines and have yet to finish moving?! It's a miracle I'm even still up at this point since I've been crashing HARD at about midnight these last 2 weeks. Anyways.. I AM SOOOOO SORRY I didn't get the Tarotscopes out this week! I will try much harder next week... even if my birthday happens to be on Sunday! ;) Even still.. I hope y'all have a wonderful week!!

Soooo yeah, Tarotscopes are a little late this week and I also didn't get to make a post about Neptune... But on another note, we BOUGHT A HOUSE last week!! Talk about some insanity! Closing on the house had been rescheduled a few times so it definitely ended up being a little last minute! Things have been so crazy.. we've been moving out of our rental and trying to get things cleaned up and put together in the new house. Can you say leaking drain pipe for the washer right off the bat!? Thankfully that was only like a $20 fix and the hubby needing to take some time with it. But with 4 kids, keeping things running smoothly has been easier said than done! The first night in the almost 2 year old FREAKED out for about an hour and wouldn't go to bed for nothin! It's been really crazy though and to top it off, today we have to keep our 12 year old daughter up for her sleep deprived EEG so they can monitor for any seizure activity tomorrow morning. Oh and the battery in our van decided it was going to start acting up yesterday so that needed taken care of too! So as much as I wanted to get the Tarotscopes out on time, I just needed a little bit of a break! Well, as much as one that I can get since I've still been rather booked with appointments! So before these are ANY later.. here we go...
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)- Your mind may be travelling a mile a minute with your ruling planet Mars in your 3rd house of thought! And you could be trying to figure out how to best find the path to stability! As much as you would like to figure out the quickest way to your outcome, it's better to take your time in thinking things through. If you feel others are trying to sway you from your desires, you might need to ask yourself if they have your best interests in mind. While you'll want to stand your ground with what you want, take their concerns into consideration!
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)- With your ruling planet Venus in your 3rd house of communication and Venus making an intense opposition to Pluto on Tuesday and a square to Neptune on Wednesday, you'll need to be careful with how you express yourself! While you may feel you are being honest, your words may cut a little too deeply! This may lead to someone trying to cast you in a bad light. Rather than fighting it, allow others to discover the truth for themselves. They possibly already know it and this will only show that you are the bigger person! Be careful not to get caught up in too many projects this week either.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)- This week you could be feeling the shadow phase of Mercury retrograde that will be coming on June 26th. And as much as you would like to feel productive, things just seem like they aren't going to come about. Everything seems to have done a 180 and you'll be feeling as though promises that were made are being broken and that people aren't measuring up to your expectations. You could also be feeling somewhat depressed and putting a lot of the blame on yourself as well! If ever there was a time you could use a vacation or break, now would be it!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)- As the Sun finishes out it's time of your 12th house of completion, you feel a sense of accomplishment and excitement for when the Sun enters your sign! You definitely are feeling the Sun shining with new beginnings for you and you will feel a boost of creativity and inspiration! Just be careful that you don't burn out from doing too much or you might lose sight of the optimism you're currently holding! Take things in moderation, just as nature does! Everything seems to be coming together at this time for you, just make sure that you are staying realistic with your expectations and you'll continue to succeed!
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)- You might still be trying to get ahead with things this week and if you aren't careful it could come back to bite you! Make sure you're being honest and at all costs be sure that you're able to be decisive with what you want! If you're expecting someone to come to your rescue, you could be left high and dry. You'll need to rely on yourself at this time! Try not to let the frustrations and anxiety get the better of you. This week could really test your limits with how much you give to others and what they give back to you! Important decisions could be made with your friendships!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)- This card popped up for you a few weeks back and now with your ruling planet Mercury in the shadow of it turning retrograde, you may be looking for a safety net this week. There may be some help coming from others but you might not be sure of whether you should accept it! It's ok to admit that you aren't able to handle it all on your own! You will need to be open to receive help on their terms and not make demands on how you think things need to happen. Take any advice this week that you can get to make things better for yourself!
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)- Your ruling planet Venus is in your 10th house of career and while things have been going well, with Venus opposing Pluto on Tuesday and then squaring Uranus on Wednesday, you'll need to make sure that you aren't gloating too much this week! Don't be upset if things haven't completely reached the level of achievement you were hoping for, it'll be there soon enough! Things may be a little up and down for you this week and you'll need to try your hardest to keep things in balance. Just make sure that you don't give up before you've come full circle with things!
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 22)- This week you will have a renewed faith in yourself! While Venus is in opposition to your ruling planet Pluto on Tuesday, old ideals bring you to your true feelings. Stand strong with what you think! The transformation that you have been going through moves you forward into the success you've been seeking! The new path you have been on becomes much clearer as you see the routines established now will bring about more long lasting fulfillment! You may be introduced to someone new that can help further your development and spirituality! Enjoy this connection and new experiences they'll bring!
Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)- The Page of Wands is a card that is attributed to your sign and this week you'll find a new adventure is in front of you! Whether this is an idea that has been on the back burner that you bring back around or it is something that is completely new, you're going to give it your all! You know this time will bring about some great changes that you've felt you've needed for a while. NOW is the time to start getting things moving forward! While you may have some emotional support or assistance from another, the main work to be done will be all yours to handle!
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)- While you were optimistic last week with the opportunity for something bigger and better, with your ruling planet Saturn making a helpful aspect to Neptune this week you could be seeing the undertaking that is necessary. And while you know it is important for this change to happen, you also know it will take some time. Just stay focused on the tasks at hand and let yourself become more aware of how this will bring you closer to the life you are wanting to have. Even though you'll be frustrated, you'll still be able to accomplish a few things that will help you regain some optimism!
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)- There's a light at the end of the tunnel this week! Even as Venus in your 6th house of routine squares your ruling planet Uranus in your 3rd house of thought on Wednesday, you'll be able to see that the past is in the past and you're given a new chance to turn things around! While it might not be comfortable to realize where you've been wrong, you'll at least own up to the problems you've caused and will be able to shine a brighter light! You'll be able to let go of any insecurities that have held you back and are given a clean slate!
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)- Saturn in your 9th house of intuition makes a beneficial aspect to your ruling planet Neptune on Tuesday. But rather than being helpful it leaves you feeling like you've made a horrible decision! Before you run for the hills, let things progress how they need to. While it might not be as smooth running as you'd like, realize that everything happens for a reason and this may show you just how strong you are! You may just need to give in to the chaos in order to get the results you were looking for. Though you might not be sure of what you were looking for at this point!
Phew! I actually got these knocked out with everything that's going on! I expect things are going to be rather hectic still.. hello, there is shag carpet that needs replaced and thankfully me and the hubby have done plenty of tile work in the past! But if you would like a reading, I do have some time available still so shoot me a message at facebook or my email and I'll get back to ya ASAHP! ;)
Have an awesome week!! (back to scrubbing walls and steam cleaning!)
Ask Andi / Sunday, June 2, 2013 /
I thought I'd post a video for a change instead of just a standard pic! What a week this is shaping up to be.. At the end of last week Mercury shifted into Cancer and Mars into Gemini and now, as I write this on Sunday, Venus moves into Cancer! AND THEN this coming Friday, Neptune turns retrograde!!! And this is all after last weekend's eclipse! Talk about some energy!! If things weren't clear before for you, you can expect to get some clarity this week! Which is also the name of the song that I chose!! I LOVE Zedd! Spectrum is one of my absolute favorite songs. But anyways.. Neptune turning retrograde can be a little bit of a wake up call! Neptune in it's direct motion allows you to dream, but in it's retrograde motion; you put those dreams to the test to make them a reality! You're really able to face the facts and take off the rose colored glasses! So before I get into too much all about what this movement means since I want to actually turn it into a post... On to the Tarotscopes!!!
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)- With your ruling planet Mars in your 3rd house of thought squaring Neptune, you might be feeling like there's too many options for you this week! You'll need to decide what's most important to put your focus into if you're really wanting things to come about. Otherwise you'll be left running in circles! Things might also not be completely as they appear to be, or you might just be avoiding the truth in the situation. Be honest with yourself and others to make sure you're getting exactly what you want and need! Don't leave things to chance, you have to be decisive!
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)- It's time to leave your troubles behind you! Now that your ruling planet Venus is in Cancer you're able to really face the future and bring yourself into an environment of stability and nurturing. You're tired of the struggles and while you aren't running away, you might have realized what was needed to get a routine established, or that if a change was needed to bring about a routine, you'll be able to soon have it become clearer on how to make it a reality. This may even be the week that you decide it's best to leave your current home for another place that'll best suit your needs!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)- Now that your ruling planet Mercury has moved into Cancer and your 2nd house of self-worth, you might be taking an inward look at what you're contributing to the world. Be careful that you don't start to over think things though or start taking on more blame than what you need to. For you, it's important to be able to realize it before you can make things a possibility. But if you are only trying to talk yourself into something, you'll be disappointed with how things turn out. Don't alienate yourself from those that can really help and get a second opinion if necessary!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)- Don't let this image scare you!! In fact, don't let your anxieties get the better of you this week at all! With Mercury and Venus in your sign you might be having the feeling like you need to make sure that everything is in order. But don't let this energy have you focused on all work and no play or you could be left feeling overly stressed for no reason! While you might be focusing more on the negatives of a situation, you might be missing out on the positives that are right in front of you! Take a deep breath, it'll really be OK!
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)- Your hard work is going to pay off this week! As much as it has been a struggle to make things happen, you're finally nearing the home stretch! But that doesn't mean it's break time yet! That'll come a little closer to the middle of the month once the Sun moves into Cancer. So for now, utilize this energy to it's fullest! With Neptune going retrograde in your 8th house support, you might just find yourself with an unexpected helping hand you need to see you through! Even if things seem complicated, you'll have the stamina and determination to make your desires possible!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)- This week is going to have you facing some harsh realities! Not only with yourself, but also with others. Your ruling planet Mercury is now in your 11th house of hopes and dreams, and with a helpful aspect to Neptune in your 7th house of relationships, it's time to decide what's really important to you for the long run! Change is never easy for anyone, but there's always a refreshing moment of "aaaahh" after you make it happen and really understand why it is for the best! But just because you've got the judgement card doesn't mean to be condescending to others.. your way is not the only way!
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)- You might be feeling like this week you're getting Aladdin's lamp! Especially with your career as your ruling planet Venus is now in your 10th house! But just be careful that you're able to keep with the expectations that others have for you as Venus makes an aspect to Neptune in your 6th house of work and routines. Your excitement may be a little short lived if you aren't able to meet the demands. Take a break when you can to make sure you can keep pace! And while this may see an increase in finances, make sure that you don't go too out of control in spending!
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 22)- The world is yours! At least, that's what it seems like this week! And you're able to put your faith in the Universe to see you through to your success. The hope you have at this time is carrying over to every aspect in your life! With Neptune turning retrograde in your 5th house of creativity you're able to see that the power that you hold within is bursting forth to come out! And while it does make a troubling aspect to your traditional ruling planet Mars in your 8th house of intimacy, you'll be able to see that any restraints that have been placed are able to be broken free from.
Sagittarius (Nov 23 - Dec 21)- As one phase comes to an end, another is beginning! The Death card is nothing to fear! Your ruling planet Jupiter is approaching the end of it's transit through Gemini and your 7th house of relationships, so this week with Neptune turning retrograde in your 4th house of stability you can expect things are shaping up to bring about the changes that are needed to your domestic situations. While you may be slightly worried of these coming changes, as long as you look inward to find your focus, you'll see that adjusting your expectations briefly will allow you to stay on track! Your optimism never fails you!
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)- With a Grand Trine between your 3rd house of thought, your 7th house of relationships, and your 11th house of hopes and dreams.. you could be feeling like you are chasing a dream early in the week. But then as Neptune turns retrograde, you'll really be able to see the truth. Even if you've been ignoring it! Allow yourself to let go and for things to fall into place rather than trying to put demands or control to the situation. This week will really bring about some big changes for you that will be the start of some true happiness if you let it come to you.
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)- Things this week will be reminding you of a simpler time. And you'll need to be careful that you don't find yourself stuck in a position where you are staying in the past and not moving forward with the changes that are happening. Be grateful and appreciative for the memories you have created! These times are what have made you who you are now! If you've been stuck in a rut, this is the time to take the energy from Neptune's retrograde in your 2nd house of self-worth and put it to the test! A change in your career may also be on the horizon!
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)- As your ruling planet Neptune turns retrograde in your sign on Friday you will take a moment to question how reliable you have been to others. The commitments that you have made may have you realizing just how much people depend on you and you might feel the need to open yourself up with how this makes you feel when Mercury makes a suggestive aspect to Neptune on Monday. While you may feel as though you are taking these demands upon yourself, you will be able to see that you have plenty of support and do not need to feel as though you are alone!
I felt that I would stick with the upright cards for a bit longer! Hopefully I will have some exciting news to share later on in the day on Monday, so if you're not following me on Twitter.. you might want to! ;) As always I hope you enjoyed the Tarotscopes and if you'd like me to look into things for you with a reading, feel free to send me a message at my email or facebook!
Alrighty girlfriends... and dudes... It's soon to be summer time (if you're in the northern hemisphere, that is!) and this is usually a time when a lot of fun is to be had. But if you're being a Hoover (or maybe we should call them Dyson's these days! LOL!) in your relationship; that's to say, you're sucking the life out of your relationship by being clingy.. you could be setting yourself up for a breakup! And no one really means for this clinginess to come about.. it just happens! You're excited! You can't wait to hear from them, to see them, to BE with them. And then comes the boys' or girls' night out and you start to feel upset because they should want to spend that time with you. Or they said they'd call or text you back, but didn't...
Relationships are TOUGH work! They are not the things of fairy tales or Hollywood romances. Though they can sometimes feel that way, it's not how it'll be 100% of the time! And there's a delicate balance that has to be maintained.. Otherwise you start to become that needy, over obsessed partner that your other half starts to wonder what the hell they are seeing you for! Which then starts bringing about doubts, maybe even arguments, and possibly even a break up! So how do you keep things in check?!
#1 - You have to realize that your better half is their own person. They will think, feel, and deal with things completely differently than you will. If you happened to see my post Happily Ever After Someday, or you check it after you read this, you'll see the pain scale graphic. EVERYONE experiences things differently, whether it be pain or love! Clinginess doesn't come about from feeling unappreciated or from there being a lack of love. It comes from not being understanding, from forming an over dependency and from being insecure.
#2 - You BOTH need your own space! You have your own likes and dislikes.. or you should anyways, because if you both like 100% of everything and think the same way.. that is going to get real boring, REAL quick! Everyone needs time to themselves to de-stress and unwind from the day. Even married couples aren't all up in each other's face 24/7, and if they are, it usually isn't because they're in love! And even then, it probably still wouldn't be 24/7!
#3 - You're a jabber jaw and s/he's not.. or maybe you just are like "just let me listen to you breathe on the phone while you.. play Xbox, write your thesis, pay your bills, etc."... It's O-K if you don't have hour upon hour gab sessions EVERY DAY. Hell, it's ok if you don't even talk every day!! It doesn't mean things are done and over or s/he doesn't care! It just means there were other things that needed done in their life!! Don't take it personal.. maybe they spent 4 hours on the phone at work (if that's something that's possible) and they just don't have it in them to talk! There could be a number of things... you don't have to make it about you.
#4 - Friends get in the way... or so it seems. This is going to be a huge one for some. Maybe you don't like the friends because they aren't motivated, or maybe they're the opposite sex! Either way, the friends were there BEFORE the relationship and just because you might not like them; doesn't mean they need to drop them like hot cakes! Being demanding is NOT attractive in any way, shape, or form. And if friends come into the mix AFTER the relationship is in place, you have to TRUST that your S.O. is smart enough to make decisions on who they want in their life! If you're feeling resentful because they have a life outside of you, then you'll need to take a look at where things are at within your own life and why you're feeling that your happiness is being dependent on them being around. It's all good to have your own friends, hobbies, and just general life to live!
#5 - Insecurity creeps in!! Alas, the night out occurs and you just KNOW a hookup is going to happen. Really?! If you have that little trust in this person, you might really want to consider WHY you are with them in the first place. Let's just say in a reverse situation that YOU'RE the one that out and all of a sudden this SUPER HOT cutie is striking up a conversation and you know their hitting on you... well, of course you could take them up on the offer. But you're happy in your relationship and you're able to keep the conversation while saying in your head, or maybe even saying, NO THANKS I'M TAKEN. Again, it's about trust. Just because you're talking to the opposite sex doesn't mean you're going to hop into bed with them!
#6 - Did we DTR?!? That is to say you are NOT just dating and it is a full fledged relationship! You don't have to ask if you're the S.O., you KNOW it. And don't get me wrong, it doesn't mean you sat down and said "oh so we're boyfriend/girlfriend now, right?". Sometimes it goes that way and sometimes it doesn't. But if you have to question it, then it's usually a safer assumption to step back and take the "dating" route rather than it being something serious. If you really want to know, then open up and communicate.. but that doesn't give you the option to get upset either if you thought things were serious and they thought things were casual. Dating doesn't mean that it's fair game though either and y'all can just go around being casual with everybody and anybody. Boundaries still need to be established... in this day and age STDs are a serious matter! You BOTH need to be responsible and be able to communicate what it is you're wanting from the relationship... no matter what stage it is in!
#7 - OMG it IS a relationship! YEA! So for the sake of this time line.. it is an actual relationship that's been defined and you're out of the dating phase of it.. that doesn't mean there's a ring on it yet. And really, even if there was a ring on it, that doesn't mean it'll be there forever either. OMG I hope I didn't freak y'all out with that one! But it is the truth. And for most guys, and some women, something like that graphic would make them run for the hills!! But being overly affectionate can be just as hard to handle for some. Because they can question why you are trying too hard, or they may even wonder if the effort they are going to be able to give to the relationship is enough! As I said way back in the beginning of this post... relationships take work.. whether you're 1 week into it or 10 years into it!
And though the pic is rather funny and MOST people (obviously there was one!) wouldn't consider something like that.. I have to say that one of the main reasons I posted this blog in the first place was because I had a smattering of sessions today that had distinct undertones of this very clinginess I've been talking about with this post! I thought it might be more important to share this before it becomes more apparent as summer approaches and these sorts relationships require some rescuing! So to summarize and to really make your relationship the most awesome-ist it can be...
*YOU are awesome! KNOW it, BE it! *Everyone is their own self! Be independent and understanding! *Appreciate the time you have together.. DON'T demand the time. *Don't try to overcompensate by giving too much! Maintain a balance of give and take. *TRUST and COMMUNICATE!
So.. I think I was able to cover everything in there on how NOT to be clingy! But I might not have.. Seriously, I have scribbles all over a notepad of things I was channeling today that it will probably take weeks to totally organize! But at least this is a good start!
But if you're still wondering where things stand within your relationship and you would like me to take a look at things for you, feel free to send me a message at my facebook page or my email and I'll be glad to help!
