Tarot has long been a passion of mine. It felt like an instruction booklet to the great unknown and offered keys to its mysterious treasures. I’ve always treated it more like a hobby than a vocation…until recently. My ‘day job’ as a digital marketer led me to a client with a metaphysical focus. She asked me to write her monthly tarotscopes. Suddenly what felt like a fun pastime became something of spiritual significance. Her audience resonated with every word, to the point where messages and praise started pouring in. Confirmed by a spiritual mentor and advisor, my scribes were not of my own but had been channeled through Source. In this marvelous time of light and awakening the knowledge kept secret by the ancients and angels was ready to come through.
It’s hard to wrap these sentiments up in a tidy bow of humility. However, part of the divine feminine that is rising is a call out of the shadows. To help women everywhere feel comfortable enough to stand in their power, not with any air condescension of ego, but from a place of deep intuition and knowing. YOU are a goddess in every sense of the word. I hope these monthly tomes help you understand this truth.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 20) – Queen of Swords
This is your moment Capricorn. No more hiding in the shadows. No more playing small. You are a woman of great strength and independence. You are able to forge your way in this world. Not only do you know how to climb mountains, but you know how to move them. You possess great gifts, not only as the masculine embodiment of success the world presents to you, but that of another realm. Your understanding of the situation is crystal clear. Turn up the volume on the Spirit Guides channel. They have a lot to teach you. Break out the journal and ask questions. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you are answered.
Aquarius (Jan 21-Feb 19) – Eight of Wands
Dreamy Aquarius, I’m so proud of you! You’ve started to realize by making fun your priority that everything else in life flows so beautifully. I see that all your blocks have been removed and you will have swift movement forward on your metaphysical journey. As you level up do not be alarmed by headaches, moments of extreme fatigue or trouble with your eyes. Source is doing some serious light work behind the scenes that does not know the bounds of time and space. This month is a time to spend as much time as possible in nature. Hug trees, dip your toes in lakes and streams, pick up feathers or seashells you notice along your path. As you rapidly transform your multidimensional knowledge, it’s especially important to ground yourself and give thanks to Mother Earth. Isn’t she gorgeous?
Pisces (Feb 20-Mar 20) – The World
Wow Pisces! A full archetypal cycle has been completed when we land upon the world. The last in the Major Arcana, The World signifies a huge chapter in your life closely. While this card is a time of celebration, it can sometimes be a time of grieving. By closing down toxic relationships and closing down doors of beliefs that no longer serve, you’ll begin to tear up as you break up with your older self. Let these tears be the water that nourishes the garden of your soul. Give yourself the space to fall apart, for that’s where things fall together again. And do me a favor Pisces? I want you to decorate your house in bundles of fresh cut roses. If there was ever a time to splurge, it’s now. Roses will protect your most vulnerable self in a thicket of thorns while you bask joyfully in their beauty.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – King of Swords
Smart, charismatic and sharp are the ways in which you present yourself to the world, dear Aries. Perhaps there is another approach. The fates confirm your supreme wisdom and insight, but offer some advice: It is better to understand than be understood. Not everyone operates at your frequency, that is the beauty of life. You can either belittle those around you and help them feel small, or guide them to a wondrous world of joy and enlightenment. Doesn’t the latter sound more interesting? This month I strongly suggest you go and visit a food bank or find another way to volunteer. You are truly at your best when you are giving back.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – Two of Pentacles
Oooh Taurus, you are on the rapid river of expansion and growth. This infinite flow of the universe can be overwhelming at times. Don’t forget to occasionally stop along the shore to lay idly in the sun. Butterflies will be following you around this month to offer you comfort and joy. Sometimes earth shattering realizations can be terrifying, but Mother Nature is here to remind you that you are safe, you are loved and you are wonderful. I think the best thing you can do this month while transforming into ever brighter greatness is something tactile. Build a sandcastle, play with clay, jump in a mud puddle or break out the finger paints. Play will soothe your soul.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – Death
The Death Card always seems to scare those new to tarot. I find it a welcomed totem of the Major Arcana. “For it is by dying that we awaken to eternal life.” Unfortunately pain is the touchstone for growth. for If you look at any of our spiritual masters who roamed these great lands they faced unbelievable hardship in their lifetime. You too have deep wounds that now serve as reminders as to how you can help others climb out of darkness into never-ending light. This month you need to plunge. Both literally and figuratively. I think submerging your entire being in a soothing bath soak or an icy mountain pond will help you emerge with a sense of empowerment and foresight. You’ve never been afraid of the shadows and now is the time to dive deep into the depths of your healing heart.
Cancer (Jun 22-July 23) – The Tower
Oh Cancer. Just when you thought things were settling down here comes The Tower. It’s been a time of rapid change and growth for you. I see you looking for a rest. The fates have decided nay, they will not let you sleep. That is, not until the lesson has been learned. It’s easy to remain calm when the warm summer breeze blows gently on our skin. It’s near impossible when the world we once knew disappears and makes way for a new foundation on which to build our future. Source wants you to learn the most difficult lesson of all: to find comfort and joy in the most difficult of times. This month I want you to pick up ALL of your tools: warm baths, long walks, puppy snores, meaningful chats, colorful flowers, nutritious meals and delightful naps. Self-care is your only job right now. I mean it. Everything else will magically work out the more you fill your cup.
Leo (Jul 24 – Aug 23) – Page of Pentacles
Hello my lion! It’s your season and I hope you’ve been letting that mighty roar come out to play. The Spirits have identified you as a student who will soar in matters of abundance. In other words, you are a powerful manifestor. Whatever you wish to create in this world is already yours. Any belief system that tells you otherwise is false programming. You keep trying to do things cunningly, swiftly, strategically while adhering to their rule book. Well f*** the rules. This month I command you, ok strongly suggest, to go out there and let your rebellious teenager lead the way. Bonus points for anything that involves you dancing or swimming while naked.
Virgo (Aug 24-Sep 22) – Two of Cups
True to your sun sign, you are so organized, orderly and of course, always right. Um, do you see how that could be frustrating to the rest of us? We are mere mortals trying to keep up! This month I want you to fall in love with every inch of everything that drives you crazy. The disorganized sock drawer becomes a place where you have gratitude for fuzzy comfort on your feet. The pile of unwashed dishes is a kind reminder of the bounty of nourishment you get to enjoy each day. The annoying co-worker is not only a reminder of your luck in crisis, but a teacher who offers an important lesson worth learning. By learning to let go of some of your rigidity you break down walls and let connection rush in to greet you with a big, warm metaphysical hug. You are a wonder Virgo, now is the time to let others echo that sentiment.
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22) – Seven of Wands
Do you hear that Libra? It’s the sound of your ancestors calling you home. They are beating their drums and inviting in all the Gods and Goddesses that reign the heavens. All around you, all the time, you are surrounded by everlasting light and love. Know this and dip deeply into this resource this month as you’ll need its strength. Your belief system is being questioned at every turn. Do not fight, simply surrender. Listen to your friend with their silly ideologies from a heart-centered place. Open your ears to the rants of your crazy Aunt Thelma. Recognize the mirror, the oneness and the illusion. The world’s current deception is that we are at war with one another. Nothing could be further from the truth. Listen more closely.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 22) – Six of Swords
Scorpio you’ve been feeling a little lost lately huh? I appreciate your ability to deep-dive into the darkness, but let’s make sure you don’t get stuck there ok? Source tells me you are allowed to trust your intuition completely and without reservation. I have a suspicion that current societal constraints are causing you to doubt those intuitive thoughts. When you have to make any decisions this month I want you to close your eyes. That’s right. Now with them closed offer the solution of your making. Where do you feel that in your body? Now try something else, perhaps something that will please the masses but doesn’t sing your heart song. How does that feel? In case you didn’t get the memo, people-pleasing is so last year! Go forth and do what makes you happy…even if it’s the most illogical choice. Perhaps while listening to Erika Jayne belt out one of my favorite tunes: “How Many F****?”
Sagittarius (Nov 23-Dec 20) – Ace of Pentacles
Money has been top of mind for you sweet Sagittarius. I mean it’s safe to say it’s been up for everybody, but I’m guessing it hit you the hardest. Watching your travel budget dwindle is almost causing you to hyperventilate. You’re starting to feel trapped. Well I’m here to let you know that this is all divinely inspired. Your lesson this month is about how to feel free even when bound by the ugly societal chains that are holding you back. What does freedom mean from a spiritual sense? Where can you open more portals of light, love and understanding? I encourage you to break out the glasses and get your nerd on this month. You love a good encyclopedia. Could you travel back to days of yore for deeper awareness today? What key elements from the historical record are worth revisiting and illuminating? You’re so cute when you get curious!
