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

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.

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 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.
