Strength

ARIES: Strength

This month you may be called upon to tame your inner beast, meaning that if you feel your emotions rising and you know they may get out of control if you give way to them then you need to reign those emotions in and find another way to express them.

On the surface you look happy and calm almost contented as if nothing can rattle you yet underneath a storm may be brewing.

Be on the lookout for anyone trying to press your buttons to seek a reaction from you. This may be of paramount concern to you this month with the Strength card — this version from the Anna K Tarot — as your talisman.

If you have been having trouble with someone and they know how to rile you then you need to be extra vigilant that you do not react the way they are hoping for. If you do you lose and they win.

The yellow sky shows a prevalence of mental abilities today yet if your mind is too cluttered with many different thoughts you may not get to the gist of what you are wanting to know.

The white dress shows you as innocent in some way… almost like a blank canvas waiting to see what sprouts forth. Whatever does come forth for you today you can be sure it will not be small.

Ace of Cups

ARIES: Ace of Cups

This month’s card — the Ace of Cups from the Secret Language of Birds Tarot — is all about romance, affection, flirtation, intimacy, communion and most of all love.

Aces represent new and unformed energy. As Cups refer to emotions, intuition and feelings, it’s likely to manifest on one of these levels.

It’s all about seeing your capacity to love and express feelings mirrored right back to you — through a new love interest, a friend or family member, or the eyes of a child.

You may be starting a new relationship or expressing yourself romantically — whether or not a serious relationship develops from that flirtation. As with all Aces, the energy is so new and so unformed that a myriad of possibilities is completely within your reach.

The process of falling in love reveals to you your purest, most perfect potential. It’s when you put your best foot forward and show the world what you’re capable of — and the Universe responds in kind.

If you’re already in an established relationship, the Ace of Cups can refer to a renewal of affection and passion. It can represent a renewal, a more “formal” commitment or the onset of a new chapter in your relationship.

Just like Alcyone’s movement from the last degree of one sign into the first degree of the next, you can replicate this energy by seeing the Ace of Cups as an opportunity to take things to the next level in your relationship as well.

This is a good day for socializing and interacting with others. As the day starts out, the Moon is in Gemini and sextiling Jupiter and Venus in Leo. There’s emphasis on creativity and camaraderie.

Later when the Moon moves into Cancer and sextiles Mercury in Virgo, the energy shifts toward talking about feelings and emotions.

You can see this in the card with the ponies playing along the shoreline and then gingerly stepping into the tide.

It’s time to eat, drink, dance and be merry. As Venus trines Uranus today, you may be celebrating something which not only involves you but also others.

There is much merriment to be found and growth from interacting with others. It may be the start of a new project or the beginnings of a new idea that has taken hold in your mind.

Either way it is a good idea to share it around with trusted friends and get their ideas on it.

The Three of Cups — this version from Svetlana Ava’s contribution to the beautiful 78 Tarot — represents liveliness and gaiety, communing with others and a light-hearted approach to friendship.

Notice the colorful fruits, berries and flowers scattered at the base of this card.  And the women dancing around in merriment are just as alive and colorful. There are elements of playful reverie and joyful abandon that are shown in these young women taking part in the festivities.

Nothing about today looks “heavy” for you so if you have been through a hard time lately now is the time to leave it behind and look towards the future.Know that you have like-minded people around you to life you up and support you.

Your life is ready to take a new turn and within this you are filled with such happiness that nothing and no one will stand in your way. In fact if they did you would probably just laugh in their face.

It’s time to dabble in new experiences and taste new life experiences. It’s time to let go of the past and begin a brand new day. It’s time to be grateful and spread that gratitude around because as you do it will come back to you again and again.

ARIES: Justice

This month you may find it necessary to make decisions that are fair and just — without regard your personal leanings. The Justice card refers to a conscious awareness of cause and effect, action and consequence, right and wrong.

It may be a situation that you’re personally involved in, such as a relationship that tugs at your heartstrings but is not in alignment with your principles. Or you may be asked to mediate a disagreement among friends. It’s not about choosing sides. It’s about being able to tap into the “truth” objectively and impartially.

In this version of the card — from the Sun & Moon Tarot — a butterfly girl hovers in the sky behind a scale. She strives to maintain her balance using the blade of her giant sword. A flaming heart is weighed against a single white feather in the scales.

A yin / yang symbol is at the top of the scales and the Hebrew letter “tet” is at the base. Among other things, the tet  symbol refers to wisdom and truth.

The Justice card speaks of balancing head against heart and desire against logic. While we all strive to keep these areas in sync, it’s a constant and precarious battle.

Sometimes the heart rules and sometimes it’s the head. But if you rise above the situation (like the girl in the card) you’ll be better equipped to achieve perspective. Sometimes we have to get some altitude in order to see things from outside of our earthly attachments.

The Justice card encourages you to seek the answers to your most pressing concerns through objectivity and conscious awareness. If you rely too much on head, heart will suffers and vice versa. But if you can find a way to balance the two, the truth will reveal itself in the end.

In terms of romance the Three of Cups can refer to reconnecting with an old flame or reuniting with an ex. It can also manifest as a natural progression from the Ace of Cups (an attraction) and the Two of Cups (a mutual attraction) to the Three of Cups (taking that attraction to the next level).

Whether you’re celebrating your own good fortune or raising your glass to toast another’s, the Three of Cups serves as a reminder that there’s always something to be grateful for, and always someone to share your gratitude with.

Three of Cups

It’s the weekend and time to let your hair down, go out and have some fun and generally not worry about a thing.

The Three of Cups stands for happiness and merriment.

Happy times abide and though you soar in the exuberance of the “moment” remember what you do in this moment may have consequences that bring you down to earth (or diving for cover under water) at some point in the future.

There’s a general sense of excitement as you know you are able to let your hair down and be social on oh so many levels.

There’s the level of soaring high and being so engrossed in your own pleasure that you ignore or don’t notice what is going on around you.

And of course, there’s the coming down to earth with a splash where you may have made a fool of yourself and decide that hiding your face for a while is the best thing to do so you are not too embarrassed.

Then there’s all those levels of excitement in between where you can flit from one social engagement to the next or one person to the next just like a butterfly.

You may even like to choose a coloured fin on one of the mermaids and imagine what that colour brings out for you and your mood.

Whatever you choose to do today (or tonight) there is a sense of joy and abandonment of all your worries around it. It’s as if you don’t have a care in the world and from the look on the face of the highest mermaid in this card all your cares and worries are dropping away as you soar higher and higher.

King of Swords

ARIES: King of Swords

This month you’re likely to be thinking more about doing business and finding your place in the world than anything else.

With a line-up of planets moving through your 8th house — the area associated with joint resources and other people’s money — as well as Mars (your ruler) joining Pluto in your public sector, the focus is going to be more on career and professional achievements.

The King of Swords is all about power and authority. Success, Accomplishment. Strategy. Intelligence. You’ll have all of these things at your fingertips and should be taking advantage of them — particularly in the first two weeks of the month.

This is a time for putting your ideas out there — verbally or in writing — and communicating them to others. It’s not the time for ambivalence or uncertainty.

Look at the King in this card. He’s a bit more colorful and flamboyant than we’re using to seeing with the King of Swords. He’s usually rather stoic and somber.

But this whimsical version is just spirited enough to capture the dynamic and playful Uranus in Aries transit you’re dealing with and just dignified enough to capture the Mars in Capricorn transit you’ve got moving through your 10th house.

This King says you can have the best of both worlds. It doesn’t have to be all work and no play. And you won’t get anywhere if it’s all play and no work.
