The month of November will bring with it a lot of change and it seems to be an emotional month for most of us! For this reading I am using the Tarot of the Old Path by By Sylvia Gainsford & Howard Rodway and published by US Games. It draws on wiccan symbology with consultants for the deck including Margot Adler and the Farrars. I have to say the vivid colors and images are very inspiring. I love the attitude of each card and how clearly it comes through, all in all a beautiful deck and very easy to work with. Perfect for those beginning in the tarot, if you don't know the symbols, you don't need to worry about the main images speak clearly enough! A little confusing are some of the name changes such as with the Death card which in the deck is called The Close. But it is easily overcome once you recognize it. Now to the Tarotscopes!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) - Happy Birthday Scorpios! The beginning of this month will not be complete bliss :( The Five of Pentacles comes through to tell you to be wary of your money and possible bad investments. Make your money work for you and be very wise before putting it in someone else's hands. The Seven of Swords reversed visits you at the middle of the month to unburden you of your heavy load. A nice breather is in order, sit back and relax for a minute. At the end of the month the Fool comes forward to warn you to look before you leap and that a new adventure may be in order. Now is the time to look for a new job or prospective life path but be wary and fully investigate it before jumping in with both feet!
Aries (March 21 - April 20) - Your month starts off with the Six of Cauldrons in the reversed position letting you know that now is not the time for love talk or beginning new relationships. Put your focus on cultivating the ones you already have and avoid deep conversations concerning love. The Queen of Swords reversed bumps into you mid-month, look out for a strong feminine personality they may need a shoulder right at that moment. Also, be aware that Wednesday would be a great day to have that love talk this week. Finally you end the month by meeting the Lone Man reversed (known as the Hanged Man) he brings with him the encouragement of conversation and company along with momentum forward for future ventures! What a great way to start the next month.
Taurus (April 21 - May 20) - Powerful energies are at work for you this month Taurus! All Major Arcana cards, starting with The World at the beginning of the month. Don't be suprised if you feel a little overwhelmed, this can lean towards both the positive and the negative but either way the situation will end with a positive and you will feel as though many doors have opened for you! I like to relate to this card as it being similar to a kid in a candy store. So many options! The middle of the month brings Illusion (The Moon) ideas and concepts that you had about people and things will be shattered but with it comes clarity and understanding of the world at large and your place in it.
