The month of December will bring with it a lot of energy and movement toward manifesting dreams! For this reading I am using the The Lover's Path Tarot by By Kris Wilder and published by US Games. Kris also created the Goddess Tarot in this deck she brings to life some of the worlds most inspiring lovers and integrates them as Tarot archetypes. Romeo and Juliet, Arthur and Guinevere. It is a gorgeous deck and Wilder's artistic talents really shine through and create enigmatic pictures that stir the senses and stimulate the psychic mind. Now to the Tarotscopes!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) - Happy Birthday Sag! Let's see what Universe has in store for you during your birthday month. During the beginning of the month Penelope and Odysseus greet you. Penelope encourages you to look at things around you with a detached view, you may be emotionally to close to some of the situations going on around you and because of that, you are not seeing your options clearly enough. The Ten of Cups reversed knocks on your door mid month reminding you to fight through negative feelings, that now is an important time to keep positive no matter what is going on. Paolo and Francesca stop by at the end of the month bringing with them the ability to turn your greatest weaknesses into strengths and aid you in realizing another part of your potential.

Pretend you know nothing about the current situations around you and you will learn more than you thought. Also this may indicate a new beginning, whether education comes into play, a move or new career. The Five of Arrows ends the month warning you of a feeling of defeat, whether it be a job you didn't get, or a class you failed.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21) - Scattered Gemini, that is how you will start the month. "To many eggs in one basket!" the Prince of Wands stops by to warn.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22) - Like Orpheus and Eurydice there must be sacrifice in everything we do. We give up one career for another, one love for another, one life path for another. The beginning of the month heralds such a sacrifice although short lived to attain a major goal you have been striving to attain. You move into the Nine of Cups reversed mid month giving you a sense of complacency. Do not mistake comfort with stagnancy, something will leave a sense of dissatisfaction around you.

Be sure to let each side of you have a voice and that sense of dissatisfaction will dissipate.

During the middle of the month you move into the Five of Arrows telling you to be careful and put up your defenses, emotional issues are going to come to a head in a verbal way. It is a good thing in the end to cleanse yourself of the problems by releasing the energy, but it will not be the most enjoyable of experiences. Recognize your triggers and the triggers of those around you if you wish to avoid the conflict although honestly, it's better just to have it out. You end the month with the Five of Cups in the reversed position wrapping up on a happy note with the ability to appreciate what you have in front of you rather than wishing for what you don't. This positive energy carries forward into the new year bringing with it a sense of accomplishment and positive change.
