Tarotscopes: December 2012


Hello Lovelies!
 It is time for the December horoscopes!!! This month I am working with Major Tom's Tarot of Marseilles by Tom Schick. Named after the author's father it is a really beautiful attempt at bringing one of my favorite tarot styles back into popularity. The Tarot of Marseilles is what was THE tarot deck all the way up until the time of the Rider-Waite deck, it was the standard. Arthur & his partner changed that in creating more elaborate environments for the pips. But personally I love the simplicity of the pips cards from the Marseilles style decks as I feel it truly shows the beauty & importance of the Major Arcana. Major Tom's deck continues that tradition with bright, bold color choices, updated clothing styles (no it's not your great-great-great-great-great-great-grandma's deck) that still retain the classic feel of the Marseilles tarot style. Aside from the deck itself the book is comprehensive & one of the only decks I've seen where they show the importance of the colors & numerology of the tarot.
You can get the deck through www.schifferbooks.com

Sagittarius - Happy Birthday!! You start out the month in the King of Swords giving you the gusto that you need in order to do what has to be done in your current situation. You may feel stuck between a rock & a hard place or in a situation where you know SOMEONE will end up feeling hurt, draw strength from the King of Swords & recognize the importance of this crossroads. This situation will be a game changer for you. The 1 Cups card follows you into midmonth leaving you feeling unconditional love & satisfaction in your current environment. It also may bring a sense of completion to your current journey with the 8 of Swords ending the month reminding you that you are not quite done yet. Don't be surprised if you feel stuck at the end of the month just ride it out until January. Think of it a little like Mercury in retrograde, don't do anything use the time to introvert & review.

Aries - The 2 of Swords greets you at the beginning of the month indicating a state of indecision or a stalemate between to people. Now is not the time to try to come to conclusions or compromises let things stand as they are until you move into the Conjurer mid-month. He represents the will to create now is the time to move plans into action, you can literally move heaven & earth to make things happen! You end the month in the 4 of Batons which indicates you are enjoying your routines, it can also bring a sense of joy with an anniversary, wedding, birth or birthday!

Taurus - You start the month in the 6 of Coins giving you a sense of balance & an eye towards charity or generosity towards others. Mid-month you move into the 7 of Swords telling you to take a chance or a risk on a new project or person! You end the month with Justice giving you the energy to receive what you deserve.

Gemini -  You begin as the Empress giving you growth & nurturing, now is the time to allow yourself to bloom! The 8 of Cups starts you on a new spiritual journey, embrace it & gain a new sense of self. You end the month in The Devil indicating that you may be boxing yourself in be careful of restrictions you may put on yourself. 

Cancer - Now is the time to see the effect of your actions as seen in the Queen of Swords. For good or for negative you reap what you sow. You move into the Cavalier of Cups next giving you the energy to go to the ends of the earth to do what you love or to help those you love. Know that your persistence & nurturing nature will pay off for you. Ending the month in the Cavalier of Swords we see the need for discipline & a more established routine to help get you back in balance. 

Leo - The Valet of Swords is ready to march at your order in the beginning of December the orders are simple explore the relationship between your friends and relationships! You sweep into the 5 of Batons giving you permission to blow off steam, but be sure that when your done you go back to your project with a fresh perspective and an eye towards teamwork.The 4 of Cups is where you end your month showing that even though it may be the holiday season boredom sets in and you may feel like your spinning your wheels when in fact there are opportunities all around you. Open your eyes and be ready to receive your miracles.

Virgo - You find yourself in the Queen of Cups you may be more apt to empathizing with the people, animals and situations around you. There is a reason for this, Universe gives us mirrors in other people, it's time to learn your lessons by empathizing with others. Mid-month we see you moving into the 3 of Coins, indicating that you will be getting recognition or rewards in your work, bask in the glory! You end the month in the Hermit, recognize the wonderful education you've received this past year & appreciate how much you've grown.

Libra - 10 of Coins stops in at the beginning of the month telling you to relax & allow prosperity to come to you, don't block it with doubt & fear. The money is right there for the taking. The Valet of Batons comes in to offer you a chance to learn something new embrace it! You end the month with The World giving you the sense of something missing having been found and a feeling of completeness.

Scorpio - Now is the time to get committed & allow yourself to love something around you more than you do yourself, this is the message that the Valet of Cups brings with him. With this new found or rekindled love you will hop in The Chariot & race off to victory mid-month. The 9 of Batons ends the month for you, indicating telling you to watch your health & continue to fight for your causes!

Capricorn - The Papess greets you at the beginning of your journey this month, she tells you to use your intuition and really let your gut be your guide. The King of Coins stops you mid-month telling you to stop for a second and really consider the path you have set yourself on for this life. Is it truly what you want or would you like to make changes? Now is the time to plan. You end in the 2 of Batons indicating a temporary hold on things, don't get frustrated or upset if things come to an abrupt halt but know that they will clear up in a little bit.

Aquarius -  You begin December in the 1 of Swords telling you to keep an eye open for a big surprise (in a good way) a new opportunity or idea is headed your way. On the flipside of it though you may also find someone suddenly upset or angered with you & it comes out of left field. Either way in the end it is a good experience. Judgement shows up mid-month giving you a huge wake up call! Time to open your eyes beautiful & see the situation or your life for what it truly is. You end the month with the Cavalier of Coins urging you on at work keep pushing to get what you want!

Pisces - King of Batons meets you at the beginning of the month he brings with him a sense of clarity when it comes to a very muddy situation. Temperance enters your sphere mid-December telling you that now is the time to mix opposing forces to bring a vision into creation.You end in the 1 of Coins indicating a new business venture, opportunity to make money and financial success!

Tarotscopes: November 2012


Hi Lovelies! It's November and time for your tarotscopes!! This month I used Inspiration for Survivors created & illustrated by Aunia Kahn with the companion book written by Russell J. Moon.
I am really excited over this deck, although not a traditional tarot (it only has 44 cards) and more of an oracle the premise is extremely interesting. EVERYONE IS A SURVIVOR! Anytime you have a complication, obstacle or situation to overcome you immediately become a survivor of that circumstance.
I will say the art is absolutely GORGEOUS & so inspirational one of my particularly favorite cards is 'Even in Chaos You Can Find Peace.' the grunge theme to it & the barren nature of the card leaves a haunting feeling that is unsettling & peaceful at the same time.
I would recommend this deck to absolutely ANYONE! Reader or not it is a VERY inspiring deck with a lot of practical wisdom & encouragement to help you get through the day. Th e only thing I would change about this deck is I wish it were numbered, for those that are not intuitive readers & would prefer to use the book it makes it a little bit more difficult to find the cards chosen for that day.
This month I will not be pulling multiple cards for each sign, instead we will give you a theme from the deck for all of November! So let's get on to the Tarotscopes!

Scorpio -  Happy Birthday Scorpio! Your theme for this month is 'We are Reflections of Each Other' this card indicates that you must look past the self and recognize that we are all interconnected through Universal Energy. To me this card may also say that you will be meeting someone or a group of people who are either kindred spirits or may help to cast reflection on your current situation. An instance of this happened to me recently where I was doing a reading for a client who, although faced with a situation of different circumstances basically had the same emotional reactions I did to my current problem. Inherently the same obstacle just with a different cast of characters, it allowed me to be more objective because I was looking at a reflection not at my own situation.

Aries - 'Every Soul Has a Story' and you need to embrace yours & the stories of those around you. Each chapter of that story helps to mold you into the person you have become, flaws & all. They are our life lessons, our gifts & whether negative or positive our blessings. Before you judge someone, listen to the story of their life, look beyond the physical & peer into their soul, read their record & then decide where they belong in your life.

Taurus - It is important that you 'Follow the Path to Joy it is Right Before You' Taurus. You are the creator of your own personal joy, everyone is void of something at some point in their life & although we may try to fill it with the material things it is not that which we crave. Rather it is the understanding & acceptance of who we are or creating a plan & making strides towards who we wish to become which aids us in creating a full heart & a blissful life.

Gemini - Remember this...'You Can Go Anywhere & Do Anything' there are no limits, only those you impose upon yourself. Now is the time to recognize your freedoms & bring your dreams to realization! Sometimes it may take a drastic change to help become who we want to be, this could be a move, a change in love or career. Either way know that you can change on a dime & still find bliss, or success...you have no limits!

Cancer - Please keep in mind that 'In Our Darkest Times We Are Never Alone' no matter how dark it is there is always someone around you can reach out to. Whether by phone, visit or even just by faith you constantly have the support. However it will be up to you to reach out, be open & share your problems don't assume that you are a burden to others by sharing your issues. You may just be the reflection that Scorpio is looking for!

Leo - No matter what you do or your situation 'Chains can be Broken' whether emotional attachments to the past or current attachments to a loved one it is possible to free yourself! There are no excuses to being held back as there is always a choice to be made or action to be taken. In this instance it may mean moving someone into your outer circle, breaking up with a significant other, leaving a career or ending a business deal or partnership. Either way this is change that comes with sacrifice, even if we fear cutting the cord it is worth it in the end.

Virgo - Your message for this month is 'May We Gain Peace & Spiritual Grounding' open your heart and mind to the spiritual connections all around you. Whether you look to deities or just the earth's own energy now is the time to embrace that link & ground yourself within it. Faith will take you through this month, much better than planning will at this point.


Libra - Stand up! 'Be a Superhero for Others Shine Light Back to Them' you don't need to find a phone booth where you can change, you don't even need to have a cool cape! Being a superhero to someone in your life could be as simple as giving them a smile, pat on the back, a shoulder to cry on or that ONE person  that your friend/family/spouse can talk to without judgment. It will be as good for them as it is for you.

Sagittarius - Try to 'Hold a Stuffed Animal & Feel It's Soft Heart' something that simple can turn your day from bad to good. A study showed that partners who hugged for five minutes a day had a more successful relationship & sense of cohesion within their environment. Right now things may feel a little out of sorts for you, sit down with your partner, pet or stuffed animal & give a hug.

Capricorn - 'Emotions are the Freedom Given to Express Ourselves' give yourself permission to go through your feelings and be honest with your sense of expression. Not everything is happy go lucky and you can't pretend that it is or just stuff your feelings because it is uncomfortable in that moment. 

Aquarius -
At some point or another 'We Must All Let Go of Hiding Behind a Mask' allow yourself to let go of false perceptions that others have about you! We all have the innate ability to become the chameleon in order to fit in within our group or to aid in smoothing over situations. Now is not the time to call upon that skill, rather shed the mask and let the REAL you shine!

Pisces - It's time to 'Get Lost in the Sound of Music' and I don't mean the movie (although it was really good) a song has the ability to calm our mind & heart. It feels as though this month will be pretty chaotic for you Pisces so be sure to have some good tunes to listen (and sing) to as you go about your business.

Tarotscopes September 2012


Hello Lovelies!

So this months deck is a very unique one created by Jolie DeMarco an intuitive, medium, & Reiki Master/Teacher hailing from Florida. The deck consists of a variety of channeled Mandalas that each have a sense of power enabling healing whether on the physical, spiritual or mental level. The Healing Mandala Oracle Cards are extremely interesting and well thought out with colors that provoke instinctive reactions to aid you in opening yourself to the healing energy for the pictures. With a channeled message, how to use the card, esssences that would work for someone who picked the card and research done through Jolie's use of the deck in readings this deck gives a nice big picture to the sitter. I suggest this deck for absolutely anyone and everyone! Even though this is not the typical tarot it is a phenomenal deck that can be used in so many ways it's ridiculous! Definitely a shoe-in for one of my top decks of 2012!  Now on to the Tarotscopes!

Virgo - Happy Birthday Virgo!! Your mandala for this month is The Eyes of Light! Bringing with it a sense of peace & serenity on all levels! The channeled message is "Eyes of Light watching you. Safety - peace activates light within you." This card brings the knowledge that you are being looked after by the spirits or angels on the other planes. This mandala brings hope & the feeling of angels watching over you and it is a direct connection to the loving light of those angels & spirit guides.

Aries -Your mandala for this month is the Energetic Life! The channeled message is,"Helps human exercise - move their bodies & cellular structures. The human casing around the soul. Please use rose water, in combination of lavender, jasmine, geranium- any crystals will enhance the human energy."  People who choose this mandala are often already interested in exercise or have been looking for the motivation or momentum in exercise. You can use this mandala as a motivational tool. It works on more than just the physical aspect although that is a major player, it can also help with mental & spiritual progress, motivation & exercises the brain or intuitive ability!

Taurus - Your mandala for this month is Balance! When this card comes to you it indicates the need for balance and it's wonderful mandala will aid you in achieving that goal. The channeled message is,"Chakra alignment - human balances. Flowers balance." Use this card strictly for the purpose of bring balance into your life. Use it to balance the body internally & externally.

Gemini - Your mandala for this month is Chaos can be corrected - external chaos! Well I think that the name of the card is pretty self-explanatory. The channeled message is,"This will encourage humans to prioritize in human life on earth of the truly important."  This card indicates the need to remove unwanted thoughts of problems & troublesome situations cause by outside sources. The energy of the mandala will help you to take a moment and relax enough to gain clarity & prioritize your obligations.

Cancer - Your mandala for this month is Speechless! People who are drawn to this mandala are typically trying to communicate more clearly or learn how to talk differently i.e. telepathy or through energy. The channeled message for this card is,"Telepathic communication." "Entities arise." This card can also help in your quest to communicate with other spirits & other entities. If you are stuck in a psychic rut & are not able to advance now is the time to focus on developing your telepathic abilities in order to help you get over the plateau.

Leo - Your mandala for this month is Save the Earth! Now is the time to get green, reconnect with earth energies, our planet is in a state of constant change & people drawn to this mandala are looking for conscious change in their own life. The channeled message for this card is,"Letting others be activated to be mindful in saving the earth. Taking action immediately big or small it will help. Activates the mind of wanting to help procreate life on earth, growing food, plants, nature." Right now is the time to be open to changing your attitude, be open, non-judgmental, & kind to others in order to get through this month & the rest of your life.

Libra - Your mandala for this month is Maintain Health! Focus on yourself this month Libra, it is important to pay attention to your physical health in terms of nutrition & way of life. This mandala is a wake up call that the lifestyle you are living is not physically healthy for you. It may have already become a focus for you at this point as there could be weight issues or problems with health. The channeled message for this card is,"The healrt of the "body" human form. Light & Love mixed is healthy. No purple in this mandala, not out of human form. Meaning physical form that can be restructured (the human body)."  Jolie explains her belief that the guides told her there was no purple as it had nothing to do with spirituality and everything to do with the physical body, it is an indicator that you Libra need to stay grounded.

Scorpio - Your mandala for this month is Reconstruction of Life. Now is the time to move on Scorpio, your facing continuous blocks to your life path. This could manifest in work, love or any aspect of life at the moment but either way your stuck in a rut & looking to find a way out. This mandala gives you the energy & permission to let go & move on. The channeled message is,"The waves within us. Cellular structures. Turquoise, Indian descendants first." The mandala tells you to bring order to your personal life, and to look forward with no regrets.

Sagittarius - Your mandala for this month is the 5th ray! Get ready for an awakening this month, you will find yourself compelled to search beyond the physical plane, to look in the direction of the otherworldly or maybe even the alien! It also indicates that at this time as you awaken you will move and shift your energetic frequency to higher levels. The channeled message is,"5th ray energized the force of life in the 5th ray. Those who know the 5th ray will be awakened upon seeing this geometry." Once your energy has been brought to these higher frequencies you will be able to connect with entities of Light.

Capricorn -  Your mandala for this month is Galactic Web or Web of Light! Bringing with it a need for faith, to believe that you may step in horse poop but you'll come out with a pony thanks to Universe, God, Goddess or whatever deity/philosophy you believe in. The channeled message for this mandala is,"The mystery of the light is within each of you to find. Wellness effects everything of human life. Direct link to light. This mandala surrounds the humans and enlightens them to heal what is needed in their lives on the earthly plane. Faith. The Mystery of the light is within each of you to "find". Direct link to light." Most people who are drawn to this mandala are in the midst of dealing with a ton of issues all at once. When it rains it pours and they may be feeling trapped at the moment, however this mandala gives the questioner the insight to understand that all they need in this situation is to release control and keep faith.

Aquarius - Your mandala for this month is It is the Center of Oneself! This mandala helps you to connect to your soul's purpose indicating that Universe may be bringing opportunities your way or putting you at a crossroads in order to aid you in finding that goal. The channeled message is,"Feeling the inner self of the soul of humans. It  will help humans realize the soul's purpose on earth. Crystal quartz also green tourmaline together." Look at your life's purpose particularly in relation to work at this point it may be time for a change or reaffirmation of your reason for being.

Pisces - Your mandala for this month is Urgency of Light! Move Pisces!!! Get working on it! Now is the time to stop thinking and just start doing!!! The channeled message for this mandala is,"Beauty within. 4 corners of Light. Centered & Light. Human core & soul needed. Danger, danger." This mandala is causing quick movement forward, Universe is not giving you a choice, the energies are propelling you forward at light speed! Roll with it and recognize that change is coming whether you want it or not. However, this is change for the positive so don't stress on it.

August 2012 Tarotscopes


Hello Lovelies!
August is here already!!! Anyone else have whiplash? The months are just FLYING by at light speed and here I sit again your humble prognosticator with another month of predictions, omens and a review! Now I know last May I was pretty tough on the ShadowFox Tarot (by Richard &  Jennifer ShadowFox)  but I believe that the Deck of Heroes is a true redeemer, the graphics are the same as the ShadowFox Tarot but the colors come through and they are extremely inspiring. The book is fantastic (which I wasn't really surprised about) its easy to tell that Richard knows and respects the tarot but also acknowledges that it is not the end all be all of divination systems. I was VERY excited about this deck! I suggest it be one for anybody who ever read a romance novel! Inspired by the cards I have changed some of the format of the Tarotscope for this month, rather than talking about you we will be telling you about the hero! Now most of the heroes in this deck are men but it is not a slight against the females Richard explains in his book that he felt it would come across better. Which it did. Anyway, so the hero is you this month whether male or female although I may refer a lot to the 'he' it is simply part of the story for this month!



Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22) – Happy Birthday Leo!!! You begin the month in the Nine of Pentacles as a hero hangs pentacles upon the wall while his lady watches on. This card indicates that you will be going through a time of self-dependence, it's all on you but it's okay, your flourishing! Mid-month brings with it the Five of Cups, where our hero stands in front of a grave still mourning his loss and unable to move forward. This card asks you to please let go of past trauma, give yourself permission to move forward, Universe is only waiting to hear that you are ready. At the end of the month you enter into The Fool! Looking ahead on a beautiful white horse our wonderful beefy blonde protagonist ventures forward beginning a new journey. Although uncertain of the EXACT path, this card tells us that you are meant to be there. This could apply to many things, a new business, partnership, romance or even a move. Either way, look at it as an adventure and an opportunity to expand and grow!


Aries (March 21 - April 20) –   The beginning of the month our hero is reminiscing about simpler times, thinking about family and love in the Six of Cups. As he contemplates the past he happens upon someone he hasn't seen in a VERY long time! What a surprise! Next our hero moves into the Two of Wands stands on the parapet looking out at the full moon thinking about what comes next. He may be moved to explore more options beyond the original plan. At the end of the month we see our hero in the standing on a wooden bridge, pike in hand, as he enters the Nine of Wands. He is on guard as you should be...the question becomes why? He must be wary of the people around him.

Taurus (April 21 - May 20) – Two heroes face off while standing on the roof of a great tower in the Two of Swords the tension between the two keeps them in perfect sync and balance. But the threat still lingers. As each hero evaluates the other fears arise and it keeps them both in a stalemate. Whichever overcomes their fears first will be declared the winner in this brilliant and deadly dance. A hooded hero stands in a red haze his arms crossed each holding long swords. His is the presence of a change that can't be reversed...he is Death. There may be fear, there may be resistance but either way he will come, and he will bring change with him. At the end of the month our hero sits upon his bed, head in his hands he looks out his door into the moonlight where the 9 Swords sit in the doorway. As he looks sightlessly towards the door instead he sees the faces, and situations that haunt him. Scenarios run in his mind of things he would have changed if only he could go back and have a do over. He must learn to release himself from the past and that no matter how much he obsessed about future issues at this point he cannot control it.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21) –  A red haired hero practices his maneuvers with the staves with his black haired counterpart in the 5 of Wands. Personally it seems our hero simply needs to blow off steam and get out some aggression which is both healthy & natural...as long as he remembers to play fair! A golden haired hero stands in supplication of  the equally blond & angelic Judgment. The stairway lies beyond her and this man is bared before her all his sins, and his accomplishments. It was a last minute event that brings him to this point where he must appease this goddess and be allowed entrance. However, it is his honesty & not his charm that will get him through. Tan, dark and handsome our hero walks through his golden palace clothed in  rich greens & a large gold pentacle waist belt. his green came swishes behind him. He seems determined on his goal, he is the King of Pentacles after all. He may be an intimidating presence, powerful and has done well in business. He encourages planning, preparation & practicality to see him through to success.



Cancer (June 22 - July 22) – Our hero this time is actual the anti-hero as he leads a lady down a set of stairs by chains. He seduces his women much like any addiction or bad habit, and people who feel his chains relish them, they don't even realize they are in danger until it is too late. In the next scene our dark haired hero stands with sword at the ready, his enthusiasm is infectious! Even though he may be fearful he puts on a brave front. Many people will underestimate him because he is the Page of Swords and has a youthful air, but his keen intelligence and willingness to do what is necessary will carry him through. Our lone hero faces the odds...alone, pushed on but the strength of his convictions all he has is his with and Seven Wands to aid him. Guided by principle (and maybe a little bit of stubbornness he is willing to do what he believes is the 'right thing' even though it may not be the popular choice.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) – Sitting on a balcony the Page of Cups looks out to the sea. His face is gentle & kind, he is sincere and willing to believe when others may question. He has the strong faith and is willing to open his mind to the messages of Universe. We look at him a little later and still he sits upon the balcony staring up at a single Star that shines so bright in the blanket of twinkling lights in the nights sky. Finally he has a plan, that golden answer that puts the world back to rights, he thanks his lucky Stars and moves on with renewed hope. A red haired hero stands strong with his Wand, we recognize him as The Page, he faces a tornado with abandon enjoying the risk & confirmation of life. He chases the rush that comes with danger, usually with no contingency plan. He doesn't take the time to think things through, his thought is "I Do". 


Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) – A heroine stands in the center of a room, dressed in white flowing robes she holds a gold dish in either hand. Two heroes stand behind her, one with a rose the other a sword, her eyes are closed as she waits for the weight of Justice to be applied. She is the judge, and the jury, her decisions are quick and final although she tries to gather all the facts not everything is known to her. Our hero sits on a table one of his Four Cups toppled over, a blond woman bathes in the background at this moment he couldn't care. He is completely detached from everything that surrounds him, lost in his own world. Next our black haired hero stands upon the roof of a house, cape & hair whipping in the wind he holds his sword as if to challenge the Moon. It is time for him to slice through the dark and shed some light on issues.


Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) – Betrayed...our hero has been betrayed on the worst level, he finds his mate in bed with another man. He doesn't enter the room but rather stands outside of it to dry his tears. Not only is this man with our hero's woman but he counted this man as friend. It is Three Swords right through his mighty heart. It feels as though our hero clings to the ledge of a Tower over the next bit of time, his will to survive is stronger than this pull to release himself from the collapsing rubble that was his life. And it pays off as this hero finds himself in the possession of Three Pentacles and a new lady! Reminding him that although friendships and love may end there is always a new beginning around the corner!



Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) – Our hero looks over his parapet hung with Four Pentacles he gazes over his land with a birds eye view. He loves what he has earned and is more impressed by what you have than 'who you are' but he has worked hard for each and every item. To see others with similar success will draw him to them. Doing this though we know that he passes up opportunities to expand his horizons. In the next chapter comes our Page of Pentacles, sitting upon a stool he thumbs through the pages of his favorite book, he loves to spend time on his own, not that he is shy but he likes his own company best. He gathers knowledge like a sponge soaks up water and he is a great ally to have on your side. The final chapter (for this month anyway) for our hero is when he steps into the King of Swords looking out from his balcony into the gorgeous blue sky, his uses his trusty sword like a walking stick and holds a casual pose of contemplation. He takes his time and rarely uses the power bestowed upon him as king, respect comes to him easily from peers and he demands nothing of those around him that he would not expect of himself.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 - Jan. 19) – Our hero lays in bed with his lady, their look is one of obvious love and mutual attraction. Three swords decorate the fireplace near the bed and the fourth lies beneath it. He is unguarded now, not even a thought to defend but only to love. If however, that love is threatened he will go to war to defend it. Do not doubt this deadly man. A dark haired hero walks up a set of stairs to meet the woman who holds his gaze. He cuts a dashing figure, as he walks through the Six men holding Wands on either side of the red runner up the stairs. There is a swagger to his step and a confidence only given through victory, his return is highly celebrated and he truly comes home the hero! Our man is not someone who bends easily, yes he may be in need but he won't say it and he won't let anyone help. No matter if you throw his Five Pentacles or twenty, but he will insist on talking about horrible things are and rehashing old war stories.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) – A king's rightful place is upon his throne and the King of Cups is not exception as he claps his hands to some unknown amusement before him. Aware that you 'can't sweat the small stuff..and it's all small stuff.' he knows that life is good. Even though life is fabulous our hero still has to do his chores and when he is chopping wood three sirens with Three Cups stop to take a peek at his *ahem* work. He knows that although these women are present he still must collect the bounty of Mother Nature and chop wood before winter, distractions just will not do right now! Our hero looks back as he walks down a watery walkway, he is about to enter a new corridor. Passion lights his eyes, excitement for the adventure and the possibilities. He is a determined man and knows he has a purpose, he wants to reach that goal even if he may not know exactly what it is just yet.


Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20) – Our hero transcends from mortal to angel as he hovers above a pool of water where a woman is bathing, he supplies the water as it pours from his hands. He is both lover, sinner and divine, someone who torments himself and works three times as hard for the simple pleasures that we take for granted he is multi-dimensional but serene as he keeps balance in the midst of chaos he is the epitome of Temperance. Joy and love keep fear at bay, our hero stands with his beloved in the tide of the sea, the partners have Two Cups between them as they gaze out on the vast blue glass water before them on their island paradise. They see a kindred soul in the other and are eager to explore their burgeoning love.  They've discovered their love to be true and not their cups runneth over all Ten Cups new life has sprung from the couple's love and the family is happy!
