Jan 2015 Tarot Scopes featuring the Animal Wisdom Tarot

Two of Feathers

ARIES: Two of Feathers

This month may see you feeling torn between two competing interests or desires and at a loss as to which one one you really want to follow.

You start the month with an opposition between Mars (your ruler) and Jupiter, which are moving through your 11th (social) and 5th (personal) houses.

The Mars transit has you thinking about where you fit in in the world and about the contributions you’ve made. The Jupiter transit is more personal: it’s more about creativity and self-expression.

As difficult as it is to balance these dual desires, you may find yourself at an impasse. It’s hard to feed one set of urges without feeling like you’re neglecting the other.

You may need to take the time to reflect, much like the Heron in this card.

Here we see him gazing down at his reflection in a tranquil pool. A crescent moon shines in the night sky, illuminating the pair of feathers that are crisscrossed on the water’s surface.

The Heron is this deck’s version of the Two of Swords. As this card often refers to inaction and immobility, you might take a page from the Heron’s book and use that inertia to reflect on your options before you make a move.

Aries is usually more about “act first and think later.” But this month you might want to hold back and weigh your options instead. In doing so you may just be able to find a way to satisfy both sets of urges.

Knight of Pentacles

Knight of Pentacles

With the ploughed fields behind you and new pastures to be had it is as if you are at the end of one chapter of your life and ready to start another.

There is nothing more bewitching than a black cat riding on the back of a goat. I bet you never thought you’d see that image.

Take a careful look at it and you will see the cat looks as if it is guarding the goat and looking for any danger that may come their way. Meanwhile the goat is free to nourish itself.

It is about time you gave yourself a break. You have everything in place to take some time off and enjoy yourself and nourish your soul in order to give back to yourself what you need to replenish.

There is no fear that anything will go wrong as the cat keeps a lookout around you. This means that you have taken good care to protect yourself, your possessions and your finances. Everything is running smoothly for you without threat.

The Knight of Pentacles ushers in a new era of making money with the possibility, as can be seen in this card, of doing it in a different way.

Whilst in the past you were perhaps tied in to restrictions in how you conducted your work or business (as can be seen from the straight lines in the ploughed fields).

Right now you have the opportunity to lay down a completely different way of doing things (as can be seen from the rich, ripe grass of the new fields underneath you).

With Saturn sextiling Mars today the energy around you is high and you will make a lot of headway in getting things done. There is neither frustration nor stagnation but a nice, even keel to the energy around you allowing for life to flow beautifully.

As the black cat keeps watch keep in mind… It’s always nice having someone to watch your back.

Today you may be taking a more serious look at where you’re heading, with respect to your career, your professional goals, your education, your finances and your “brand.”

The Knight of Pentacles is generally all about taking things slow and steady with a keen eye on the future and the discipline to keep “plodding along” as you move toward your destiny.

As with all the court cards, this can be someone presently in your life (or coming in) or it can represent a frame of mind that’s necessary for you adopt right now.

Don’t make the mistake though of focusing too much on the nuts and bolts of achieving success. If there’s any negative aspect that can be associated with this card it’s usually the dearth of inspiration that can lead to getting stuck in a rut of tedium and routine.

But this Knight of Pentacles doesn’t appear to be lacking in inspiration at all. We see him pausing at the onset of a vibrant and colorful path, reaching up to the heavens. Is he praying for guidance or expressing his gratitude?

The greatest obstacles are behind him. He steps out of the darkness and into the light and sees a great big colorful world out there ahead of him.

Today is a day about giving and receiving and this doesn’t have to just be in terms of monetary gains and losses.

The Knight of Pentacles rides in on his horse and gives to all around him. There is more than enough to go around and as Jesus fed the thousands not only with food but with new thoughts there is something to be said for what you give out and it coming back to you.

Today would be a good day to have your thoughts in alignment with your goals and to ask yourself what those goals mean to you and where they will take you.

For better or worse others pick up on what you are saying and doing and you do not want to leave a trail of misinformation behind.

Instead you wish to pave forth a blazing trail of truth that nourishes people’s souls and lives in a way that enriches them.

The Knight of Pentacles in this card tells us that from the lowliest to the highest we all have a part to play and there is no need to judge what others give for it is up to you what you have to give and accept in turn.

As the sun shines so brightly in this card it is almost as if we are being nourished and replenished just through the sheer energetic imprint it leaves upon us.

July 2014 Tarot Scopes featuring the Tarot of the Zirkus Magi

Tarot of the Zirkus Magi -- the Lovers

ARIES: The Lovers

Relationships and relationship issues are going to be hands down the biggest area of focus for you this month.

That doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. But what it does mean — with Mars (your ruler) moving through your relationship sector and in hard aspect to both Pluto and Uranus — is that it should be “interesting” at the very least.

The Lovers card brings all of your relationship issues to the forefront. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It refers to decisions that must be made — sometimes between two lovers, and sometimes between love and something else — as well as all the temptations, fixations and complications that are a part of that elusive and intoxicating mystery we call Love.

If you’re dealing with challenges in your own relationship, it may just be a matter of getting out of your own way. You don’t want to be creating problems where there are none to begin with. If you’re just now discovering that Love is not all it’s cracked up to be, join the crowd. You would do well though to put your own needs, expectations and agendas aside.

Check out the figures in this card. Who would have thought the Clown and the Bearded Lady could portray such a fantastic representation of Love? Yet all the pieces are there. The comfort, the closeness, the intimacy — even the whole world fading into the background behind them — are all beautifully rendered here. The angel statue blesses their union from above and who are we to question it?

The Knight of Pentacles is all about taking things slow and steady, with a keen eye on the future and the discipline to keep “plodding along” as he moves toward his ultimate goals.

In this version of the card we see the Knight of Pentacles staring off in the distance with his faithful horse at his side. He can see that there are some hurdles to cross to get to where he wants to go, and rather than mounting his horse and making a run for it, he pauses to reflect on the best way to go about it.

Notice how he keeps his money (the pentacle strapped the horse’s side) secure and his weapon at the ready. This is a cautious Knight, and not given to taking unnecessary chances. A messenger pigeon is perched on the crumbling archway above him, looking off toward the distance as well.

March 2014 Tarot Scopes featuring the Dreaming Way Tarot

march tarotscopes -- judgment

ARIES: Judgment

This month you’ll be thinking about how the actions and decisions you’ve made have led you to where you are today.

The Judgment card can refer to a moment of “reckoning” where all the pieces of the puzzle start to come together and you see how you’ve participated — for better or worse — in the story of your life.

With this comes two very important considerations: one — that you can take charge and make changes in your life (as in rewriting your own script) and two — that you can view other people’s choices (which have led them to their own life circumstances) with a little less judgment and a lot more compassion and understanding.

The Judgment card refers to an epiphany or awakening, during which time you realize the consequences of your actions and are thus more inclined to proceed conscientiously.

As such it gives you a chance to start anew, to be “reborn” and make changes that are in line with your understanding of karmic rewards and repercussions. It gives you a chance to redeem and unburden yourself, as you prepare to let go of the past and move toward your true life’s purpose.
