Tarotscopes: May 2013

Hello Lovelies!
May is here!! I hope with it we get some really nice weather, up here in the northeast it has still been wicked chilly! I want to give a shout out to my Taurean sister, Happy Birthday!! This month I am working with the Inspiring Butterflies deck, a 27 day course of self-discovery. The butterfly is one of the most recognized symbol of transformation, perfect for this month!! It is a 27 card oracle deck that you can use for yourself everyday or use the outlined booklet to help you transform your spiritual consciousness!
Each inspiring card has an affirmation on the back to help you feel more at peace with your day, it is great to meditate on the cards themselves or use the affirmation as a mantra during your daily centering rituals. Not  necessarily a deck that is made for the professional or even novice reader, however, it is one that is made for the person just getting into spirituality or looking for a deeper connection with their higher self.

Taurus (April 21 - May 20) – Happy Birthday Taurus! A beautiful pink butterfly comes forward for you, it is not the time to hold in Feelings. The butterfly is pictured with almost a ripple of colors coming from it. Indicating that by OWNING your FEELINGS this month it will release them to Universe.  If you are currently in a situation where you feel you cannot express your feelings, then write them down somewhere or speak them aloud to yourself! It is a way of saying, "This is how I feel" and letting it go.

Aries (March 21 - April 20) – Remember that you are worthy of blessings and abundance. The Survival butterfly indicates that this month you may feel slightly defeated, but this card serves as a reminder that you are meant to do more than survive you are meant to thrive. This month may be a little difficult to navigate but it will pass and remember to channel your higher self to overcome your obstacles!

Gemini (May 21 - June 21) – The butterfly of Confidence reminds you that no matter what decisions need to be made and opinions given your voice and your opinions are the only ones that matter! This month is about you gaining confidence in your thoughts, ideas and decision making, so no hesitating just let the thoughts flow!

Cancer (June 22 - July 22) – Be mindful not to just say things so you don't hurt a person's feelings. The butterfly of Truth encourages you to be honest with those around you and yourself, even if it hurts. Approach people respectfully, this isn't a free pass to be blunt. But it is an endorsement to speak from the heart.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22) – Fun is the name of the game this month Leo, the beautiful butterfly that represents it is filled with active colors like red, orange and yellow to help fuel your playful fire! Don't take anything to seriously this month and put a light hearted spin on any troubles. Do something outrageous, to make yourself giggle. Share a ton of those LOL cat Facebook pics, or get together with a friend who always gives you a good laugh. It is the key for you this month!

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) –  Three butterflies in green and pink are headed your way in May Virgo, they represent Balance, something that is going to be essential to your spirituality and your sanity! We give so much to others everyday, and rarely take the time to appreciate or pat ourselves on the back for a job well done. It is time to express some self love, which will help Balance your compassion and joy. The soothing green tones of the butterfly represent the heart chakra and aid you in soothing away any obstacles when it comes to embracing who you are and the awesomeness of that! 

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) –  So many beautiful colors for you this month Libra! The soft green and blue tones of this butterfly represent the Unity of earth and air or water, the yellows represent the sun which is the unifier of these elements. More than creating connections with people it is a reminder that the love and care you give to other people must be unified with that which you give yourself. Otherwise it will lead to feelings of bitterness, resentment and anger. Now may be the time to pull back a little so you can reassess your own self-worth and image, readjust that image and then go back into your friendships or relationships with a new sense of understanding.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) – Lots of purple butterflies surround you this month Scorpio, tons of them!! These vibrant purple butterflies are a sign that you need to work on Communication. Have you ever been angry but not been able to figure out why? Or maybe you knew why but the words wouldn't come out to express it? What about a situation where someone asks you a question, you know the answer but you can't articulate it correctly? What happens? Sweaty palms, tangled words, and a lack of eye contact. In essence a lack of confidence or conviction. When we look at someone who has these things it is the opposite, direct eye contact, great words etc. This month is about facing obstacles that will help you to increase your confidence and conviction, that will allow you to blossom in the area of communication. Expect some fear, and maybe even some tangled words, but take advantage of the situation and see it as the life lesson it truly is.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) – OoOoOo...look at all the pretty colors!!! Yellow, purple, green, blue this beautiful butterfly is pretty darn inspiring. That makes sense though Sagittarius, it's the butterfly of Creativity! What a great theme for you this month, creativity at it's essence doesn't have to read 'artsy' it can be thinking outside of the box when it comes to solving a problem. When we do look at art though you can think of it as a form of self-expression and therapy. This butterfly is here to tell you to find a new creative way to express yourself and get your messages across, whether through pen and paper, drawing, creative problem solving or painting a room in the house a new color! Creativity allows you to experience that child like glee again of finding something new that you enjoy!

Capricorn (Dec. 21 - Jan. 19) – Its all about Love this month Capricorn!! Your desire to love and be loved creates compassion in your heart, which is why the predominant color of your butterfly is green! But there are hints of azure, blue and purple as well, indicating the ever changing nature of life, the ability to see others in a different light once you are connected to the source of Love & a reminder that you are never alone as long as you are connected to that source! This is a totally reassuring message for you this month when things may be a little off balance and crazy.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) –  Lovely olive colors with pinches of bright fuchsia and deep blues this butterfly is one of Peace. It's colors are not overly stimulating but the blue background it lays upon reminds you that when you "Go with the Flow" you are more in alignment with universal energy! Let passion and forgiveness ignite your spirit, this allows the people around to be their most authentic selves  giving YOU the gift of peace!

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20) – Get a boost to your Self Esteem this month as the butterfly flits around you! It is time to embrace your strengths and recognize that they ARE valued by the people around you.  From early on we are taught never to think to much of ourselves or get a "big head" personally I don't see a problem with you acknowledging that you are the god of your own microcosm. This is a truth, YOU should be the center of your universe. More often though we fall into the cheer leading role for others and forget that! This butterfly is a gentle reminder for you to be your own cheerleader, acknowledge you innate abilities, talents and strengths, give yourself a moment to realize how wonderful and amazing you really are!
