ARIES: Manatee

Has it been all work and no play for you in recent weeks? Or have there been too many responsibilities weighing on your shoulders and not enough letting your hair down and just having fun?

The Manatee, or Six of Shells —  which is the Animal Wisdom Tarot’s version of the Six of Cups — says it’s time to do just that. The Manatees in this card aren’t thinking about all the work piling up at the office or all the emails they have respond to at home.

No they’re fully engaged in a game of catch, while the rest of the world floats by around them. This is the essence of the Six of Shells. Having fun, being playful and immersing yourself in the present rather than fretting about the past.

There’s a childlike innocence and wonder associated with this card. In fact children may figure prominently for you, and the thoughts of your own childhood may be triggered by their presence. If so consider it a call to observe their ability to live in the moment and follow in kind.

The Manatee as an animal totem speaks of companionship, trust and gentle play. It encourages you to take turns, share, and accept those around you for who and what they are.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Astrology Forecast for the week of May 28, 2017 – Jun 3, 2017:

It’s going to be an eventful week for us all astrologically, starting with Mercury sextiling Neptune on Sunday. This aspect is good for meditating, journaling, or any type of creative communications (songwriting, poetry, composing love letters, etc.) It’s also a highly sensitive aspect that favors getting in touch with your intuition and paying attention to your dreams.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Astrology Forecast for the week of May 21, 2017 – May 27, 2017:

We start this week on Sunday with a moon in mysterious, ambiguous Pisces at the midpoint of Saturn and Mars. While this isn’t an easy aspect — it can translate as melancholy or even a bit morose — it does soften some of the tension and frustration that accompanies hard Saturn / Mars aspects.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Astrology Forecast for the week of May 14, 2017 – May 20, 2017:

This week starts with a reasonably a well-aspected Moon / Saturn conjunction and an out of bounds Mars on Sunday. The Moon / Saturn aspect trines Uranus and Mercury — and then squares Chiron — before it goes void of course in the early morning hours.

Eight of Wands

ARIES: Eight of Wands

It may feel like things are moving very quickly for you this month, with your ruler (Mars) in Gemini and in mutual reception with Mercury.

The Eight of Wands — this version from the fabulous Gypsy Palace Tarot — refers to progress, mobility and rapid change, usually for the better. You could be bursting at the seams with new and fresh ideas, juggling interests or overseeing different projects that all seem to be nearing completion at the same time.

This card refers to being decisive, making the most of your time and cutting through whatever distractions stand in your way. There may be a lot going on around you — like the woman in the center of this card — but the Eight of Wands encourages you to remain focused and engaged in the task at hand.

Look at all of the swirling colors in this card. There’s a lot happening there — and certainly some distractions. But there’s also movement, creativity and energy which are hallmarks of this card.

This is also a networking card. It relates to exchanging ideas and interacting with like-minded people. Blogging, disseminating information, and expanding social horizons are all indicated.
