June Tarotscopes 2011

Hello Lovelies!
I took the month of May off from the Tarotscopes but now we are back for June! I love this month (partially because I was born in it) the month of June brings thoughts of romance and marriage to many minds. This month's deck is Tarot: The Kingdom Within by Juno Lucina and Shannon Thornfeather. I have to say that the imagery in this deck is both vivid and multicultural following several different mythologies from Pagan to Mayan, Christian and 
Greek. I was a little disappointed when they threw the Pirates of the Caribbean in there as the Hanged Man and the Minivan for the Chariot. Overall the deck is okay, those two cards just don't feel connected to the deck at all aside from artistic styling you would never know they were a part of the deck. Although there were about six 'modern' cards (meaning they had 
modern day connotations or themes) the other four weren't a bother to me. Their art is very different, a little more whimsical and at times, childlike. The imagery used is bold and colorful, which I very much like. Would I use this deck every day? Probably not, but it is one I am happy to keep in my collection.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21) - In the beginning of June you enter the phase of the Nine of Pentacles, now is not the time to start anything new! You may keep feeling like walls block every path but it's Universe's way of saying 'Take a break already!' Keep going with your current ventures, plan for new projects but now is not the time to put those plans into action. Mid-month the Two of Cups upright presents itself, this card is an indication of True Love coming to you, if you are already in a relationship it speaks of a reconnection or reaffirmation of that love. At the end of the month the King of Wands rides in (in The Kingdom Within the archetype used is that of Jesus Christ flying on a Phoenix) put your plans into action NOW! You will see victory in any matter concerning, 
creativity or power! This card brings with it an entrepreneurial spirit, so now is the time to start a new business or project on your own. The money will come and people will follow you.

Aries (March 21 - April 20) - Satisfaction will strike you during the first 3rd of this month, a solid accomplishment has been made as indicated by the Ten of Pentacles. Rejoice in your feeling of success! At mid-month you meet the Prince of Pentacles (a.k.a. the Holly/Oak King) you may have plenty of ideas and tons of motivation but the support you need will be absent. Don't see this as an end all be all, even if you have to push things forward on your own this card says that you can! Be aware some of your 'friends' may be a little overly critical or you may be to critical of yourself and your capabilities. But have no doubts friend! You can do it! At the end of the month we see the Five of Pentacles reversed coming into play. This tells me that even though you may worry about the finances, you don't have to. Upright it indicates financial traumas and issues looming but reversed...well it's the opposite! so you will end the month on good note in the money dept.

Taurus (April 21 - May 20) - You start off the month in the Four of Swords indicating a new partnership, this could be love or work so be open to potential opportunities on either side. During the middle of June things will feel up in the air as you enter into the Wheel of Fortune but by the end of the month you will have a new idea or person around you (maybe the one you met in the first part of the month) that you see a ton of potential around as indicated by the Nine of Wands. Don't be afraid to invest your energy and time!

Cancer (June 22 - July 22) - Temperance greets you at the beginning of the month telling you to look for balance! Acknowledge the opposites around you and try to maintain both aspects of self. You know that saying, 'Work hard, play hard.' Do that! Mid-month we see the Star moving in indicating that there is a lot of hope around you for positive outcomes in your situation. Be sure to keep your faith and will strong, nothing will be able to stop you. The Seven of Pentacles at the end of the month foretells that there will be some upset and discontent surrounding you. The situation may not have gone as you planned, but do not be discouraged. There is opportunity even when things don't go your way.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22) - You enter the month with the Two of Wands, telling you that there will be conquest, a victory, but it is bittersweet as you may have to take a more aggressive attitude. Although you get the win, it may not be as satisfying as you expected. The middle of June brings with it the Eight of Pentacles reversed. It's time for you to really focus, but there will be a lot coming at you mid-month you may find your brain hopping all over the map and getting overwhelmed. Try some exercises to clear your mind and relieve your stress. Death reversed hits you at the end of the month, foretelling of changes to come. Typically with Death it is change with a sacrifice, but in this case not so much. The changes will come whether you will them to or not. So just be prepared.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) -
We face illusions everyday, of grandeur, of what beauty should be. The Seven of Cups comes in to warn you that there are illusions all around you, some illusions are healthy to have, but the ones surrounding you my friend are very harmful. Whether you are riding the river of denial or being lied to, it's time to clean out your closet and really take a look at the people surrounding you. The Ten of Wands comes in mid-month indicating that you will feel a little caged or 'stuck', there is not movement forward or backward, you just are. At the end of the month comes Strength, giving you the ability to break free of your bonds and push yourself forward as fast as you can.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) - Dionysus greets you at the beginning of the month (Prince of Wands) now is the time to take calculated risks. Although you may not see too much of a push forward in your ventures right now, the start of a new project or the idea of a risk really gives you a rush. One that you will continue to chase throughout the beginning of the month. Don't be afraid to play the game, just don't show anyone your cards to early on, be confident in negotiations. The King of Swords Mictlantecutli looks to you at midmonth flying in on a large bat he tells you that now is the time to share your knowledge. People will be asking your advice, opinions and looking to your for guidance. Prepare yourself to take on the roll of mentor or counselor for those around you. At the end of June you enter into the phase of the Fool, which tells you to be careful and really look before you leap. There will be some new opportunities coming your way, they will sound too good to be true and they are.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) - As you come into June you move into the phase of the Moon, now is the time to follow your intuition to get the answers you are seeking. Something is currently blocking your way to those answers, pay attention to that little voice in the back of your mind and you will remove the obstacles. The Six of Cups comes to you mid-month expect sexual tensions to heighten between you and your partner (or partners depending on your situation) your need for physical love may be near to unbearable. At the end of the month you feel positive in the decisions you have made. Justice is on your side!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) - Fight the good fight this month Sagittarius, there are plenty of causes to put your name to now is the time to be giving the Seven of Wands encourages you to! The Two of Swords comes to you mid-June offering a moment of balance and harmony, enjoy it and put your feet up for a little bit. At the end of the month you feel content with your lot in life, a very rare sentiment indeed. Bask in your accomplishments and the simplicity of the world around you.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 - Jan. 19) - The Page of Pentacles pops in at the beginning of the month to remind you to celebrate your inner child. Sit down with some crayons, blow bubbles and just act goofy! Don't be afraid to run through the sprinklers either! Mid-month brings a little bit of conflict but nothing that you can't handle. You may feel a little attacked but just remember to keep calm and try to look at the situation from all sides. At the end of the month it's all going to be about work, you enter the phase of the Three of Pentacles, indicating Triumph after much hard work.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) - The King of Pentacles makes his way to you at the beginning of the month bringing ideas of Capitalism and feelings of authority. You will be put in a position of leadership, take advantage. Middle of June brings the Empress, reminding you to pay attention to your intuitive self and honor your feelings by speaking them in a productive, not destructive way (remember to use I statements ex: I see, I think, I feel, I hear) in order to get your point across. At the end of the month the Page of Cups symbolized by Faerie Puck, telling you that right now is not the time to focus on the spiritual, your head really isn't there. Take advantage and put all of your energy into the mundane right now, creating the best physical reality that you can.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20) - The beginning of the month you start out in the Ace of Cups indicating a time of creativity, budding relationships and emotions. Now is not the time to focus on past hurts and issues, but to think on the future. Mid month you move into the Hanged Man reversed, things will not be standing still, expect life to come at you more quickly then usual, your job is just to try and keep up. At the end of the month comes the Page of Wands, now is the time to seek out answers to your questions. Perhaps you have been waiting for a teacher or haven't found the right book, now is the time to really put your heart into looking for it.
