Welcome to 2017!
2017 in tarot numberology is a 10: the Wheel of Fortune. This may mean a year of upheaval; do not take anything for granted, for it might change in a New York minute. Also, expect things to stall that you were hoping to move forward on, are you walking up the wrong
walkway at the airport?
The good news is that if you have been at the bottom of the barrel in some aspect of your life, then you might be encouraged to know that your bad luck will soon change! What is up must come down and what is down must come up!
Finally, 10 is also a combination of the Magician (1) and the Fool (0) so think of Wheel of Fortune as a strange kind of tarological Schrodinger's Cat. Energies winking in and out of existance as we all ride the quantum wave. What needs to appear in your life, and what needs to disappear again? What is being held in stasis between these all?
Here's to wishing you a very, most excellent 2017!
So long, farewell 2016! It's been real, hasn't it? We lost a lot of amazing public figures. We had a lot of political upheaval and we just need to take a breather, bake some cookies and kiss our loved ones.
This December is fairly gentle despite Mercury going retrograde for the bulk of it. I think we all need a little breather. Try to finish 2016 gently, she had a rough time.

Happy birthday, Virgo! I
I love Virgos, so thoughtful, so careful, so capable of loving and being loved, as a chaotic Gemini I find time spent with Virgos to be calming and centering. Don't ever change, you!
So we are in a Mercury Retrograde until September 22nd. You know the score, back up your tech, make sure you are being extra careful with travel, and try not to be overly sensitive with miscommunication and misunderstandings, as you know communication is going to be off.
There is a lot of good in this tarot scope however, may it resonate with you!
Virgo—The Hermit Reversed
Happy birthday, Virgo! The hermit reversed indicates that you will have to fight against the natural tendency to pull on your pajamas and put on Netflix at 6pm every night after work. Make a concerted effort to go out and meet people, take a new class, learn a new hobby, hit the gym. This card’s reversal indicates that the time in quiet contemplation is over, get out and make a splash somewhere.
Libra—3 of Wands
September will be a very productive month. You are going to be in full on planning mode for the rest of fall with a sudden sharpness and ability to focus that you have been fighting for all summer long. Rest easy, Libra, the clouds will lift and it will seem as if you are running on a full tank of the premium stuff. Don’t let this amazing focus and drive go to waste.
Scorpio—8 of Pentacles
This month you will certainly be ‘taking care of business’ tackling the many small errands as well as the large picture, you will get done in this month what previously would have taken you 3. Go ahead and start mapping out what you wish to take care of because you are like a locomotive baby, barreling down the track.
Make a wish, say your prayers, when the Star appears in a reading I often take it mean that the Universe is listening. You are not alone. You are not insignificant. Your trials, your pain, your effort is noticed. This month do not be afraid to ask for what you need, the universe will collude to help you.
Capricorn—9 of Wands
You might find work to be difficult; every idea, way forward of problem solving situation you try to implement will be blocked; in fact the energy for everything around you will be argumentative, difficult, will make you question your judgement. But, 9 of Wands is a profound card insomuch as it also tells you to keep going while telling you it will be difficult. A difficult progression can trick us into thinking that our judgement or choices were wrong, not so here. You are on the right path but you will be tested this month in how you handle it.
You may find yourself sleeping less deeply, awakening in the middle of the night full of dreams, fears, and hopes for the Moon rules you this month. It could be a time where your anxiety will feel greater than normal and you will question your way forward. When the Moon rules, we need to listen to our gut, for our intuition, as illogical as it can be sometimes is the way forward. If you feel confused about things this means you need silence, you need moon time, you need the night to show you the way. If there are things you are seeking an answer to, you will not get the clarity you need this month, there is a delay on making things final.
Pisces—10 of Wands
September sees you hitting the ground running, you will be working incredibly hard to make things come together and at times you will wonder if it was worth it, if you are making the right choice, if suffering has to be part of this process. The answer is yes to all of these. You can rest later but right now you are being called to push and extend yourself to maximum effort.
Aries—3 of Cups
All work and no play makes Aries a dull boy and the call here for you is to try to focus on your social life and seeking joy in your world. No one inviting you out? Send out the invitations, host a party, and bring people into your world. You are not alone, you don’t live to work, Aries, you know how to do this; go out and have some fun!
Taurus—10 of Pentacles
No rest for the weary, or the wicked, my dear. September is chock full of work, schedules, to do lists, planning and you may feel like you are burning the candle at both ends. I feel the emphasis here is that you need to focus, you need to plan, you need to embrace the high octane energy that is September. Take your vitamins and try to get good sleep, you are going to need it!
Gemini—King of Wands
During this mercury retrograde and as one so effected by it, the King of Wands gives us some insight into the areas that need renewal, review, and recovery; and that is the area of your creative life. Do you have some projects that have been hanging in a dusty online file somewhere, but you cannot stop thinking about? Now is the time to clean it up and breathe potential possibilities in its direction.
Cancer—Wheel of Fortune
Have you been dealing with an off again, on again relationship? This can be lovers, friends or family members–someone where the energy between the two of you is not stable its always up and down. Well, this month is emphasizing the chaotic energy of this relationship, how are you going to take yourself off of this Merry Go Round, Cancer?
Leo—The High Priestess
The H.P. here does not show up often in my Tarotscopes. She keeps herself hidden from view and only appears when some important information is being relayed. Listen to your intuition this month, keep an eye out for karmic messages and inklings that will favor you. You will find yourself with dreams and sudden insights regarding relationships, decisions, and self-understanding. This is potentially a game changer of a month, Leo.
Feeling the might of the Mercury Retrograde bearing down upon you? Time for a reading! To book a session with me both in person and online...
I can always tell when a Mercury retrograde is coming. The tarotscopes change timbre, tone, and message during this time. This retrograde feels most like an inner life kind of hang up more than outward based, very cerebral. Below is what I plotted for you for August. Thank you for reading!
Happy Birthday, Lion! Now, don’t panic, I pulled Death for you for this month. I am a firm believer that there are no ‘bad or good’ cards and Death is no exception. The message of Death for you this month is that something, or perhaps a couple of somethings, are coming to an end. I see Death as a big stop sign, ‘stop, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.’ Your job is to accept an ending, to allow and ending gracefully, and to take a big sigh of relief because whatever it is that you have been struggling with, is done. This could be the ending of a relationship or friendship that was not serving you. Your favorite shoes or dress breaking beyond repair, and counterintuitively, losing weight! An interesting card for you in your birth month, for sure!
Virgo—King of Wands
Wands energy continues for this month, Virgo, and King of Wands is the outward expression of his suit. What does that mean? It means that the qualities of action, creativity, outward and outgoing activities of all types are being put into service in the world. What do you need to create, make, or do that will serve the world? What, by your actions, will be made better by not being afraid of sharing your gifts? There is no room for anxiety in this King’s world. Bring your creation to the table.
Libra—7 of Pentacles
This month may be a bit frustrating for you, Libra. 7 of Pentacles usually denotes a sluggish, slow moving energy on something you would rather happen quickly and decisively. Do not confuse it with no movement, however, but rather slow and meandering. Check your frustration this month. Check a tendency towards judging yourself if things aren’t moving forward like you want, also be kind to others if it feels like they are being sluggish with decisions or actions. The energy is like moving through ‘molasses in January’ as my 3rd grade teacher used to say. Give you and others a lot of patience and plenty of room.
Scorpio—2 of Pentacles
For me, this card often denote a move, so if you are moving house or would like to, or are considering it, August augers energy that will support that action. 2 of Pentacles can also denote a sense of restlessness, of having everything handled but feeling that at any moment it could slip out of your control. The challenge for you this month is to hold space for this ‘slightly out of control’ feeling. Try not to hammer everything down in an effort to control the anxiety that this emotion can often trigger. This energy can also mean that within this small chaos, new things are being combined in new ways, let them!
Sagittarius—8 of Wands
I love 8 of Wands. This card denotes swiftness, messages, spiritual awakenings, and a-ha moments of all kinds. This card talks about a pivotal moment in your life where, after being struck by some kind of existential lightning, your life changes forever-without struggle, without effort, it just is. This month, Sag, something will come to you from out of the blue and by God it will be so good.
Capricorn—10 of Swords
10 of swords is heavy energy. Like Death, this card denotes an ending but it also highlights caution against personal damage. Be very careful about what you reveal to others, be mindful and discerning of who you can trust and if your intuition even so much as whispers caution, please listen. You are in a vulnerable time and need to guard yourself. If you have back problems, this month may indicate the time when you finally get it taken care of, seeking out treatments that you were loathe to undergo before. This card has also meant acupuncture to me, so if you have been feeling off, get some treatment with that modality, you might be surprised by how great you feel!
Aquarius—5 of Wands
July is a bit chaotic. The energy supports moving, for travel, house moving, or work which usually suits an Aquarian just nicely! Do you have travel plans? Perhaps you get invited last minute to a fun getaway. Say yes, Aquarian, always say yes.
Pisces—5 of Swords
If you are looking for a job, it may be this month you get it. If you are not looking for a job this card calls you to ‘go for it’ whatever it is. Do not be afraid to be aggressive when the situations calls for it. Do not deprive yourself to help others, this is not the time to be a martyr. Take care of yourself first, which is hard for Pisces, and this is why this message in particular, so important for you.
Aries—10 of Pentacles
This month, the energy is surrounding your home and resources. This card also speaks about protection which is the advice for you this month. Check and change your passwords, go through your home, are you as secure as you could be? Have you been lazy about protecting you and yours? This month, make it a point to lock down your world. Mercury retrogrades at the end of this month so this makes this message particularly important.
Taurus—6 of Pentacles
Money flows to those in need this month, bull. It could mean that you give money and/or resources to those in need, or it could mean that that money flows to you if you are in need. 6 of Pentacles speaks of a generosity of spirit, so beyond resources this can also mean being more giving of you time, your attention, your focus-perhaps gift giving and showing appreciation of those you love in your life. This is a lovely, sweet energy, people get what they really need, including you.
Gemini—8 of Swords
There is something that you are having a hard time moving past, a narrative that you keep telling yourself and it is keeping you stuck. It could be that you are refusing to see that your lover or partner is no good for you. It could be that your job is not what you need it to be. It could be that you refuse to give up drinking… Whatever it is, there is something shifting and coming to light, you can feel it on the deepest level but you are not quite ready to accept it yet. This lack of acceptance causes as much if not more, suffering. The worst delusions we have are the ones we tell ourselves. Ask yourself, “what am I avoiding feeling or thinking about right now?” that is the clue.
Cancer—8 of Cups
You are being asked to walk away from something, even though you have no idea what the next steps will be. You are being asked to walk away from something that ‘kinda’ work but you know in your heart is not what you need, does not speak to your truth, cannot ever really feed you what you need. What’s on the next horizon? That is not to be revealed yet, what is important is that you finally have the courage to walk away, to know that somewhere out there has something more for you, that following the truth of your spirit is worth the risk. It always is worth the risk. Start walking.

Happy July and Happy Birthday to my Cancers (and July Leos!). This month we see more than our fair share of court cards, in fact this may be more than I have seen in a long while for tarot scopes. When we see a large amount of court cards, it is a global call to being responsible, for showing up, for taking on uncomfortable or newly emerging aspects of ourselves to heal the world.
What is emerging from within you?
Cancer—King of Swords
Happy birthday, cancer! Okay, so July is going to throw a lot of things at you that will be emotional in nature. It will seem that as soon as you are done dealing with one bit of drama, another one comes around the corner! King of Swords is a message from the Universe telling you to take things calmly, logically, deal with things fairly and with absolute transparency. You need to be the person everyone can count on for a fair shake, deal?
Leo—Page of Wands
The closer we get to August, the louder the lion roars. You know your birthday is coming soon. You can feel it like you feel the power of the sun infusing you with raw leo power. Page of Wands is an indication that you will be prolific with your creative ideas this month. Perhaps you will have trouble sleeping,waking up at 4am with ‘the next big thing’ on your mind. People may approach you with creative project ideas, as well. This is a vibrant, open, amazingly creative time for you, don’t squander it!
Virgo—Ace of Wands
Now is the time to try something new. If you are looking for a new job, you will most likely get one this month. Want to learn how to cycle, waltz, learn Korean? Go for it! Ace of Wands means ‘initiation’; you have the power, the energy and the courage to try something that you never have before. Take a new route to work, or reach out to acquaintances to make them better friends.July supports any endeavour where you are getting out of your rut.
Libra—4 of Swords
Have you been burning the candle at both ends? Feeling tired, sluggish, unmotivated? As crazy as this may sound, you need to rest. Do you have any days you could take off? And by taking a day off I do not mean also then catching up on other stuff. I mean taking a day off. Have a day in bed. Serve yourself champagne and fancy snacks, grab some magazines (get off social media) and just relax for a change, you need it. This card can also mean that this month will not support an aggressive approach to anything going on your life. It will feel like trying to swim in molasses, everything that you do. So don’t fight it. Embrace the nap.
Scorpio—5 of Wands
There is a lot of demands for your time and attention. You are feeling like you are being pulled in 5 directions and there just doesn't seem to be enough of you to go around. Listen, you can’t please everyone all the time, only some people some of the time, wasn’t it Mark Twain who said that? He was a pretty smart guy, listen to him. Try to release the assumption that you will finish any project definitively this month. It will be more like making some progress on some projects but no one thing being done.
The Tower is what I call the ‘last straw’ card. Anything in your life that is hanging on by a thread may likely and finally fall now. Usually, these are the things that we know we need to leave, let go of, or destroy within ourselves but ego, fear, and resistance keep us from seeing the truth for what it is. The more you resist, the harder this will be. Your car, a relationship, your microwave oven, a job--anything that has been limping along for some time now will finally go kaput. Please see this as the universe helping, since you cannot end or fix it, you are being helped out.
Capricorn—Queen of Wands
The appearance of this Queen in your life is often an indication about how you need to be of service to others. Queen of Wands helps to infuse others with enthusiasm and a zest for their own lives. This Queen helps others see the great possibility of their lives and helps others find the internal strength and tools for making their dreams come true. This month, you have a great opportunity to support others in changing their lives, how amazing.
Aquarius—2 of Pentacles
July is a bit chaotic. The energy supports moving, for travel, house moving, or work which usually suits an Aquarian just nicely! Do you have travel plans? Perhaps you get invited last minute to a fun getaway. Say yes, Aquarian, always say yes.
Pisces—Page of Pentacles
This Page appears when we need to keep our ‘mind on our money and our money on our mind’. There may appear a way to make some side income this month (some may call it the hustle) so please keep your ears pricked for any news on increasing disposable income. A side gig, overtime, perhaps you sell those things in your basement. All are ideas to bring the shiny coin of good fortune your way.
Aries—King of Wands
King of Wands’ appearance this month is a call for you to finally get serious and make some work or creative project happen. A king in tarot means outward expansion, being in the world, assertive, outgoing energy and this King in particular is a full force sun being. What do you have to share with the world? What does the world need from you? Move forward with great confidence on your idea, it is ready to be born.
Are you having any fun? How often do you laugh every day, every week? Do you enjoy things simply because they bring you pleasure? This month, try something new and that thing, specifically, should have no other purpose except for making you happy. Do you even know what that could be? If not, that’s the work for you now.
Gemini—King of Pentacles
This King asks that you make certain you are taking steps to solidify any unstable situation. Whether it is work, home, finances, housing, health--make sure you are owning the leadership to stabilize any situation that is beginning to feel outside of your control. Take ownership. Man (and Woman) up. Anything you are sweeping under the rug? That’s it.

Hello there and welcome to my monthly Tarotscopes!
June is a calm, happy, productive month if anything is to go by the cards I pulled for everyone. Enjoy the fullness of the month, and remember, tarotscopes are not hard written fated impassable events but rather more of a "weather pattern" wherein some things will be easier to accomplish than others... the more you work with the energy present over you (rather than against) the better off you will be in your own unique karmic journey.
Gemini—3 of Cups
It’s your birthday, Gemini, and you are not shy about letting everyone know! All good things as Mercury has finally stationed direct (Thinking more clear about things all of the sudden?) and June is beautiful spend your time this month connecting to friends, seeking out joyful company and just in general, making your life light. The energy supports enjoyment and laughter this month. High fun, low drama.
Cancer—10 of Pentacles
If you are thinking to move, buy or sell a home, renovate, or decorate this month supports a successful endeavor in this area for you. If you have been putting off any of these projects rekindle them in June because it looks like you will make above standard deviation for progress in this area this month.
Leo—Knight of Cups
“You must sit down, says Love, and taste my meat: So I did sit and eat.”--George Herbert-
This month there may be messages of love and romance coming your way. From new or known places spend June thoroughly kindling your love centers. It’s a dance and you need to enter the dancefloor to play. The emphasis is on movement and change in this area of your life, but you could be the Knight, the one initiating the passion, as much as you are the recipient.
Virgo—Knight of Pentacles
There appears to be changes in the wind concerning work or finances. There could be a big spend for you (perhaps a trip?) or a gift to another. You might find yourself in a position to help someone, this card often appears as a ‘coming to the rescue’ kind of energy, either you will be rescuing someone financially or they will be helping you. There is an exchange of resources here but not in a stressful kind of way, but in a way that builds a relationship with another.
Libra—9 of Wands
Perhaps through the spring you have been trying really hard to do something, shift something, make something, begin something. At first, it’s easy—you are excited to begin—but then your inner critic kicks in trying to sabotage your efforts. This month indicates that you will still struggle in this aspect. The message is keep going the breakthrough will happen later.
Scorpio—7 of Pentacles
You have been so patiently waiting for something to play out. The results are slow to come and frustrating but still you wait. The message here is simple, keep waiting, the results will be worth it. Slow progress still means progress and things are moving in your direction.
This card’s appearance is a big ‘toe the line’ kind of message for me. Felling rowdy, rambly and rebely? Well, stuff it, Sag, because the energy for this month is to play by the rules, be a good boy or girl and delay whatever fanciful gratification (that you are constantly imagining!) for this month. I feel like this has to do with work. Keep your opinions to yourself for right now and don’t rock the boat!
Capricorn—Ace of Swords
I call this card my ‘awkward conversations’ card and this month, Cap, you will need to have a few of this with people in your life. There are things that need to be said and only by stating the obvious and standing in your truth do you get to feel better. Sometimes our need to be honest and claim our desires are more important than the reaction of the other person. In fact, the other person needs to know how you feel. From there, you can make decisions about how to move forward rather than suffering in silence.
Aquarius—Page of Pentacles
Always curious, always wanting to learn new things, Aquarius this is a great card for you! This could mean either a new learning or new job opportunity coming your way. The emphasis is on new, happy, open to new experiences and in ways that add to your growth and value overall. Stay open to new opportunities that cross your desk, say yes more often this month (though, you tend to say yes a lot anyways!)
Pisces—10 of Wands
It would appear that you have a lot going on in June. You might feel overwhelmed, tired, stressed and wondering if you can just cashing your 401k and run to Dominica island to live forever and ever, the end….. Nice dream but not the reality for you this month. Stay focused, initiate self-care when you can and keep your nose to the grindstone, good, good work is being done here.
Aries—6 of Wands
Feeling good, Aries? You should because you have the mark of success over you this month. Whatever it is you are working on or fighting for will make positive lasting progress for you this month. You get it, you win, you are acknowledged, you finish, you pass the test. There is nothing like a happy Aries, like a goat that dances there’s such radiant joy in a happy Aries, celebrate your successes when you can!
Taurus—9 of Pentacles
This card could indicate success at work or with your business. If you have been working hard expect to see a breakthrough or a completion in a project this month . If you have been waiting for money to come in it is possible that that ship docks at your port this month, too. The energy of this card also emphasized enjoyment, if you do get a windfall don’t save it ALL Taurus, buy yourself something pretty, treat yo’self!
I hope you enjoyed your sneak pick into June. To book full sessions with me for a larger view please hit me up below and thanks for stopping by!
With Mars, Mercury AND Jupiter all in retrograde at various points in May, it makes for an interesting time with all signs at some point being affected. Much of the theme for May is about inner work, moving and shifting things we need to process, move aside or leave quietly on the roadside so we can continue to move into our own dharma.
May May bring you gentle, gentle, gentle...
Taurus-- 8 of Swords
This month you are going to grapple with some internal demon. Perhaps mild depression, perhaps a self esteem issue, there will be some intrusive thoughts that will be unkind, unloving, unhelpful and you know that they are trash thoughts because they usually are stuck on repeat. These are not new, innovative, or even interesting thoughts. Like trash, they accumulate, get in your way and are not worth your time. This month, your job will be to take out the garbage, release and purge thoughts that have no real claim on you, who diminish you, who hold you to smallness. I CAST THEE OUT.
Gemini--4 of Swords
My Gemini, we are so unfairly affected by Mercury's common and troubling retrogrades, being ruled by mercury we are affected the most. However, since Gemini are so very high energy most of the time, I see this as a heavenly hand brake, built in times of forced rest so we don't burn out. Four of Swords means rest. Take May to recuperate from the long shuttle from winter to spring, if you can. Get out of the fast lane, put on cruise control and instead of fighting the energy, work with it. Move inward and dream.
Cancer--9 of Swords
If you can, this month, try to keep a dream diary. This month may be particularly active with dreams and some of them might be part of your inner self working through past trauma, trying to untangle a personal challenge, or an attempt to get your waking mind to look at something deeply. During this month, nighttime distress means inner growth. Please pay attention here.
Leo-- Queen of Pentacles
Get your house in order, Leo. This Queen's appearance usually signifies spending time tending to your domestic garden. Perhaps you wish to redecorate, start a kitchen garden, or pick up some sweet lights for your outdoor space. I also recommend learning feng shui, it is such a wonderful way to create a home space with function and form!
Virgo--The High Priestess
This month, you are being asked to spend some time ding what Virgos do best, engage with that wonderful feminine energy that you have in spades! The High Priestess is about swimming in the mystery of the intuitive. You might find yourself more tuned in than regular and if your gut is screaming at you about something, you need to listen. Use this time of heightened awareness to ask the important questions. Wait to hear the answer revealed.
Libra--King of Pentacles
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to become a very adult adult and take a good long look at your financial situation. I don't mean the short term, I am talking long term here; how's your retirement situation? Are you saving what you need? Is there anything more you can be doing here, be honest, is there? Are you helping others to the determent of your own long term care? Guard your castle, this month take ownership of the future you.
Scorpio--2 of Wands
Scorpio, I dare you to dream in May. I am talking about big, lazy springtime dreams. Expansive, beautiful, romantic dreams where things glitter and float on the air and it just all seems so possible. Because it is, and you can make it so. Take all of the things inside and write them down, come up with a plan, put down some action steps, start thinking about implementation. What you survey can be yours with a little free thinking ingenuity.
Sagittarius--6 of Wands
The month of May sees you are being successful at something, Sag. Whether it be work, in love, with family, or maybe a lottery ticket, this month there is a resounding YES to the energy that surrounds you. Take a chance. Leap! You are going to make it to the other side.
May asks that you pay attention to the nuts and bolts of your life. Bills, housing, your schedule, there is a sense here that you need to take control of some aspect of the foundation of your living. Have you been avoiding something in your life that needs attention and focus right now? What are you resisting? What bores you? This is the area that needs you to clamp down and focus.
Aquarius--7 of Pentacles
You might feel frustrated by the slow rate of movement in some aspect of your personal life this month. Slow rate, however, does not mean no rate; please keep that in mind before you throw something across the room in frustration. With the planets in retrograde, that is just the situation right now. You are being asked to call upon your patience, be the tortoise, not the hare. Slow and steady will win the race just don't panic if it doesn't happen in the way or pace you wish it to.
May asks that you quiet it down, go within, take some serious time for self reflection and inner inquiry as you watch the spring leaves unfurl and the flowers bloom, Pisces. Perhaps you have felt flustered about something, unsure or uncertain and when we feel like this, this is when it is time to disengage from the social media and online time and slow the brain rate down to a pace that works for us, not against us. The Hermit is about honing his craft, what can you work on during this quiet time you will create?
Aries--9 of Cups
You are still riding in a nice wave of energy this month as the 9 of cups indicates a feeling of satiation, fullness, happiness, and joy. Perhaps you have finished a project or are newly fallen in love. Maybe you got the car you were looking at or the house, this energy is the energy of getting what you want and feeling immensely happy about that, a little smug, even, in your job. No hard feelings with that! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

For this month’s Tarotscope, I felt like doing something a little different; adding a little, you know, ‘spring’ to your step. So I have chosen a Tarot Anthem for you for this month. For each sign’s tarotscope I have also associated a song, your own personal anthem; consider it a culmination of the feeling, and weather pattern in play for you right now.
Happy birthday, Aires! Yes, you are quite the Star this month as we are swinging through your natal house and rams do like loving attention, yes they do. The Star’s appearance reminds me of Bob Marley’s “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” and it sure is, my friend for this card means hope springs eternal. If there has been anything on shaky ground for you, something that has been keeping you tossing and turning at night in anxiety, it turns a corner and you can lay that to rest.
Taurus-- Queen of Swords
This Queen’s appearance in your horoscope often means that you must take on her attributes which are to be more strategic and less emotional right now. It’s business time, my friend and even among your friends; take care of business first. Deal with any contracts, negotiations, paperwork, your taxes--if there is anything that is hanging in this realm buckle down and get to it because your mind and your focus is on point right now.
Gemini--Queen of Pentacles
This Queen’s appearance in a Gemini’s home often indicates that you have been too much in your head, perhaps too anxious, too frazzled and you very much need some down town. This Queen can be languid, eco-centered, earthy, relaxed, and full-bodied. It might be a good idea to spend some time doing body work or working with your hands; fixing things around the house, going on walks--quiet your mind and let your body do the work.
What is it that they say? The squeaky wheel gets the grease? You are being called to squeak my friend. Perhaps it has been too long, or you don’t like squeaking but you have been too silent about something that needs advocating. Be brave and speak up. You will ultimately be so glad that you did.
Leo-- The Hierophant
You are no slouch when it comes to taking on the mantle of leadership and this month you are being asked to do so. This leadership though is a bit conservative, you need to toe the line and be a bit of a rules minder for others as much as for yourself. You are required to rehash and communicate boundaries and procedure to those around you, either in work or family. This probably will not make you very popular right now. Sometimes we have to play the adult every once in awhile.
If you feel pressure from others to make a decision and you just cannot decide, try not to make it this month. With 2/swords in play you are not seeing clearly and just seem kind of unable to make a decision either between things or people. Your indecision is causing issues with relationships but you just cannot be forced to make a move when you in good conscience are not ready. It's ok to take your time right now. (Under pressure)
The sense I get here with this is that there is a lot of manufactured drama around you. The key word here is manufactured, most of it does not come from you and is not really even about you but nevertheless it is involving you! This month you will struggle to separate between what is real and what needs your true undivided attention and what is silly nonsense played out by others; this will be difficult because there is entanglement but I think by the end of the month you will understand what is really yours and what is not.
This month emphasizes sacrifice. What, or who, what process, or habit; what person, or belief needs the chopping block this month, Scorpio? What do you need to let go of to break through to the other side? There is just one small dish of fear that is holding back all the many other courses, the banquet of a promised, amazing result.
Whenever people pull 2/cups they are happy for its traditional meaning is romance, but I expand that meaning to also include all of intimate relationships and interactions. These intimate moments are when we are fully our authentic selves engage with another fully authentic self; these are exceedingly rare and beautiful. These can happen with friends, pets, family, even trees. Cultivate intimacy, cultivate depth, look under rocks and ask people what they wish for and when you ask people how they are doing, wait to hear the answer, look for the follow up.
Oh this is an easy song for this card. Everything’s roses, my wild goat! I tend to think of the Sun card as the card of the ‘overreach’ people basking in the sun’s wealth have a plus one of charisma to them and can attempt things they normally cannot at other times. Try out for the job, ask that person out, make a bid on the house-- all on the things that you normally would think, “that’s out of my league.” You may just surprise yourself!
It is incredible to me that someone, a long time ago figured out that if you rub two sticks together over some kindling, you can make fire. I mean, WHO thought of that? A real caveman genius I bet. And this card, two is wands is kind of like that two, you are holding two sticks and thinking, “what can I make with these?” There is something that needs to burst forth into life from within you. I think that thing will come all in a flash and once that happens you will be there in the dark, rubbing away, trying to make the spark. Give yourself the mental time and space needed to take that spark and make it a fire.
This month, seek joy in ALL the places, especially in the hardest ones. You know what I mean, the old thought-forms the thinking routes we go to when we want to feel sorry for ourselves or give ourselves excuses for why we are the way we are or why our lives are they way they are. Instead of doing that, this month make it a small (but not easy) habit of replacing that thought-form with a joyful memory. Instead of,”Oh here I am late as usual to work, maybe I will get fired like I did last time only last time it was because I was a single Mother woe is me….” Soundtrack, replace this with finding and remembering something that makes you happy, that gives your joy, that fills you with peace. Watch something incredible happen this month.

March Feels Liminal
This month I pulled 4 major arcanas, 2 cups, 3 pentacles, 2 wands, and one sword. This is an unusually even-handed pull across all the tarot suits for a monthly tarotscope and the only reason I can think why that is is because March is often a liminal month.
March is often a space holder between the cold winter reach and the fun happy spring, we hold our breaths, waiting for the show to really, really begin. Do I have to take my jacket today? Can I wear my dress? Are my plants safe outside? The days are getting longer but things are not quite in full swing just yet.
Party like it's your birthday (cause it is!) The Magician arrives and asks you what you wish for, within realistic limits, it looks like you might actually get it. In fact, this is the month of the overreach; take a risk, reach just a little higher, longer for that job thats just a bit out of your league, that cutie that is just a little hotter than you normally go for, the heels one inch higher than your norm. Boosted by the energy of the Magician, anything is possible, Go. For. It.
Aries—10 of Cups
March asks that you stay close to home and attend to matters of family. If you are sandwiched between caretaking between generations you are being asked to lean into the task of being the glue that holds everyone together. Create a special family meal, perhaps start a new tradition, there is something joyful and new and beautiful you need to make in March to bring everyone together.
Taurus—6 of Cups
This month you might find yourself reminiscing of days gone by and finding those memories joyful. In fact, you should indulge in those memories. Was there a childhood game you found on eBay that you bid on? Play it! Watch an old cartoon on Youtube, there is some memory that needs to be revisited that brings you joy that has been forgotten and needs to be unlocked. For some reason, my intuitive sense is telling me that this is important for something later on. Do not fear going into the past.
Uh oh...the appearance of the Tower is often what I call "the last straw" card; meaning, the straw that breaks the camel's back. In any area of your life: health, work, romance, friendship, if there has been anything hanging on by a thread and you have not attended to dealing with, the Tower can be the TKO arriving to end that thing for you, and largely... it ain't pretty my turtle dove. Its tough and harsh, and dramatic and necessary and freeing and needed, tuck and roll, tuck and roll.
If you are trying for a baby this may be the month you concieve, if you are not trying for a baby, this may be the month you conceieve as the empress' appearance can mean hightened fertility. If that is off the table that can mean a message for you, that you deeply need to mother yourself; have you been burning the candle at both ends? Some deep self care is needed at this time. It could also mean call your Mother, she misses you.
Leo—The Wheel of Fortune
You have been riding high on a nice run of cards so far this year and I wonder if the WOF here means that things are about to take their natural turn as they do. What comes up, must come down and Fortune's favour is fickle. If your luck has been great, expect there to be a sudden reversal and vice versa this month. Don't take this personally, there is nothing you have or have not done here it's just the tides.
Virgo—Knight of Pentacles
March is a workaday month for you, Virgo. Are you trying to get debt down or save up cash for vacation? You make great progress on your financial life in March; buckle down and watch those pennies, you will be totally surprised by how many you will have by the end of the month. At work, you might feel tempted to make waves about a situation, please don't, at least not yet. You can do so later when the energy swings in your favor but for now the message is to lay low and sit on your nest, incubate those eggs!
Libra—8 of Wands
The energy this month is very much about "strike while the iron is hot" if a situation comes to you that requires immediate action or a decision, please make it! This is not the month for you to dilly dally. Yes, for just about everyone else in the zodiac this is a liminal month but oddly, not for you. Perhaps because as the balance sign a balance month means opposite? Who knows! All I know is that this is a huge card that says YES YES and GO GO GO.
Scorpio—Queen of Pentacles
This month may clarify anything you were sitting on over last month and the action that is suggested here is 'gentle forward action'. This Queen applies gentle constant pressure to all efforts, not unlike how a seedling slowly but determinedly finds its way up through the soil. This is you; take your time but don't panic, you got this. Domestic pursuits such as gardening, cooking and spring cleaning are also highlighted right now. Get your Feng Shui on fleek.
Sagittarius—4 of Swords
This has been a really odd year for you so far! January was a chill out card, last month you got a very high energy card, and now... you got another chill card; 4 of swords literally means "rest". I swear, I am not trying to encourage any unhealthy behaviors, Sag! This month you need to take it easy, perhaps you really pushed it last month or overindulged. This month ease off the gas a bit, put on cruise control, and get into the slow lane. Enjoy the scenery while you are there.
Capricorn—Knight of Wands
Knight of Wands can often mean change of job or travel for work so if you are looking for work this is a very good sign. Also if you thought you might be able to weasel your way out of going to Alaska in winter, sorry but that's on the docket for you as this card highlights work travel. If none of those apply then you might want to consider taking on the fiery work ethic of this Knight. What can or should you be doing right now to reinvigorate your occupation, how can you inflame your work with a passionate focus? This will be rewarded later on.
Aquarius—8 of Pentacles
March's liminal feeling month also saturates your energy, this is a workaday kind of month for you, too water bearer! Keep your nose to the grind and just put some miles down; projects, money, hours, all these things need focus and time. Perhaps you were frazzled or distracted before but this month is the month to make some headway. Also, if you were thinking of picking up a new hobby or side thing that is craftmanlike (woodworking?) this card highlights energy to support that right now. I know, boo, take the birthday hat off and get back to work.
