The Vertigo Tarot – McKean – DC Comics 2008, Magpie Oracle Tarot Edition – Paris -2014

Likely, as you move through this birthday, this year’s quality and character may be quite different from the coming year. You may feel a little discombobulated. This will work itself out on its own. If life seems to place any leadership opportunities before you, step up. Those around you are looking for a leader. If you have people in your circle who have trouble dealing with authority figures, consider softening your tone. It is not the time to stick to the shadows and play your sneaky-sexy side. Set down the Scorpion and bring out the Eagle. Be big. Be Bold. Take action. Take risks.

The advice here is to make some changes in the ways we move through the world. If you have been choosing not to speak to someone who you think needs to be spoken to (or touched, or yelled at, or kissed…), take the chance and do it this month. Ask where have you been avoiding risk, choosing to accept the status quo, or not making waves. Start there.

While I am encouraging you to take the lead wherever it’s offered, don’t be a tyrant. The Wand Queen is a ruler, but she is an artful one. She encourages creativity in others and wants them to develop a sense of ownership over their work. She loves collaboration and is almost more of a coach than a leader. She’ll roll up her sleeves to help when help is needed, but really, this Queen wants to develop the skills, self-esteem, and accomplishment of each individual on the team – thus, raising the performance level and morale for everyone. This kind of working may be difficult for many Scorpios to master, but use your charm and charisma to be gregarious and fun rather than intimidating and superior. This month, allow everyone else to feel as cool as you already are!

In all the risk-taking this month, there are bound to be some things that don’t go so smoothly – perhaps even some that collapse into catastrophe. Yet, this is NO reason not to take these risks. Experience the crash without getting upset about it. Assess the damage and pick up the pieces. If you are wearing your Pentacles King well, you will discover a variety of beneficial effects:

  • Many elements you’d originally thought essential, may be discarded.
  • There may be beauty in the way things broke.
  • You’ll make an improvement in your “driving” skills.

Let go of feeling out of sorts – jump in and take those risks. Talk to the hottie you’ve had your eye on. Have that difficult conversation with your co-worker. Take the wheel and lead the charge on something. Expect, and welcome, all the crazy crashes that may ensue. Stay grounded through them, and realize that they are – each and every one of them – opportunities that hold hidden gems. You gotta break the rock to find the geode!

Fantastic Menagerie – Grandville – The Magic Realist Press – 2006

Oh my Saggibabies. This card again. This constant lil’ card. This idea of rich celebratory self-care and relationships hidden in that Ten of Cups has been tugging at our apron strings for three frickin’ months now. It’s like they know we’ve been putting that on the back burner, thinking “YEAH! Self-care, self-reflection, hanging with my true blue peeps…I’ll totally get on that after this, this, this, and this…..” But fureals. If you haven’t been taking care of yourself and the things you love, now is the time to make some serious changes. This time the card has been flipped and is like that screaming infant at the super market. Shit is bout to get real if you have not been paying attention……and that upright duckie to the right is ready to help keep you in line. We’re
talking serious diligence – though it’s not as harsh as all that military regalia implies. There’s a softness, newness, baby feel still. So this all seems to say, “Take care of your bizznass, or else! But also, you know…..if you F’up, it’s not the end of the world.”

Your mind is going to be quite the taskmaster in the weeks to come, so it’ll be important to take some time to step back, observe, chill, and watch like a seriously sneaky bad-ass. Otherwise, this month has the makings for some significant self-sabotage and we’ll be stuck with only ourselves to blame. Really though, it may even start to feel a bit lonely at times, but this too shall pass (social saggy you). Take the moments of solitude to be alert and see how you are….you’ll find some gems I’m sure of it. Either way though, this month won’t be the one for running around like we usually do. Try seeing what it is about the things we enjoy rushing after that makes them so exciting…November has something to teach us about us….if we stop and make time to see it.

Ghosts and Spirits Tarot – Hunt – US Games 2012

Oh yes, my fellow Capricorns, we’re in for a few delicious sighs this month. We start with the Lovers card, where we see a light in the darkness flickering as you desperately hold onto your partner. This journey that you’re on is deeply personal and hopelessly intertwined with your lover, partner, or shadow self. After all, your fate is wrapped up in them and theirs in you. But while your mind may be focused on the destination, the real beauty is in this journey. Through the laughing and tears, you are forging a bond that is so strong that life without your partner is almost unthinkable. This river of love is carrying you forward. Hold on, dear Capricorn, as this is the ride of a lifetime.

As you travel this road, you are bound to encounter fears…doubts…the desire to turn back. Of course, it is natural to feel powerless when the winds of Heaven are in charge, but the 9 of Wands tells us that you must stay on track. It’s dark and a bit frightful, yes, but since when are you someone who gives up when things get tough? The mountain may loom large, my lovely Goat, but your legs are strong, your mind sharp, and your support solid. So, leave those energy-draining fears for someone else this month. Now is the time to be focused. After all, it’s more than just you that depends on it.

When and if things get challenging, I want you to see yourself holding a flag that says LOVE. You are showing the world this month what it means to devote yourself to this essential feeling. Let yourself be this poster-child as you step over any obstacles that roll in front of you. Then close your eyes and hear the Angels applauding you. This is a uniquely beautiful experience you’re having. Celebrate it for all to see.

Animalis Os Fortuna “Animal Bone Fortune” – Megan “Zaheroux” Weber – https://www.etsy.com/shop/Zaheroux

Hierophant is the main energy while the card to the left, Knight of Pentacles, hinders. The card to the right, Page of Cups, helps.

The main event for Aquarius will be rules and boundaries. Focus on setting those up, you quirky kids. A childlike heart will help you while being over-focused on money will hinder you. The Hierophant is also a call to up the spiritual ante for yourself. Seems like you’ve been a bit too analytical about your connections to Universe. Let your heart get involved more than your head when it comes to Divine contact. Atheist Aquarians would do well to engage emotional self when making those personal rules this month. And let’s remember that rules for the airy Aquarian are not set in concrete. They are more what you might call guidelines…or so say those piratical types. Make sure you are allowing yourself to set fun rules. I’d advise for ones that say “Make mud angels if there is no snow” or “Wear a silly hat but don’t explain why.” Balance a rose quartz on your head. Also? You really must loosen the financial reins of worry. When you hang on to them so tightly, the money horse can’t get anywhere. By disengaging your head in this area—just for a bit—you will allow the flow to start again. Things are just a bit slow, but anxiety may be throwing up walls not even the best horse can jump. So settle down, kids of the Wyrd. This is your time to get more heart-focused. Remember those rules you need to make? Grab a paper and a pen and get started. Still blocked? Toss the pen to the side. Snatch up a crayon of any color to let your child self out. This is a time for fun rules, remember? Color outside the lines, darlings. Heck…this is permission to slap paper on the wall so you can have a coloring fest. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.

The Tarot of Marseille – Noblet – restored by Flornoy – Editions “letarot.com” – 1650

Look what I found in a west coast thrift store this week! Cute little retro leather case complete with two pristine decks of matching playing cards, AND a gold pencil. The bird design was too sweet to dissuade me that these were NOT tarot decks – I had to have them! That’s pretty much what happens when Pisces meets Scorpio: instant attraction. Practicalities go out the window. Scorpio is that suavely mustachioed Jack of Diamonds who’s out to convince you he’s a for-real prince – complete with bling.

It’s all happening right now with the Tower card – but are you making it harder than it needs to be? Upright, this card’s all about divine intervention, the big shake-up, an earthquake-scale eureka moment. Not to mention multi-colored manna fluttering down from the big wedding in the sky. Reversed, it seems that your Piscean fish are so busy opposing each other, they’ve forgotten how to go with the flow.

Letting go can be a challenge for Pisces, but let me reassure you that the omens are favorable: the 3 of Diamonds is your shadow card, suggesting that a new partnership is about to pay off. The 3 of Spades warns that this may come at the expense of heartbreak, but who cares when you’ve got the 4 of Diamonds as your safety net. You’ve been sensible for way too long, lining up your ducks, feathering your nest, doing things by the book. So when Jack comes along, he’s pure temptation – and you’ve earned it.

The thing is, Pisces, you’re ready for change. You’ve been around long enough to know what trouble looks like. You’re no stranger to disappointment but it’s only thickened your skin. You’re not looking for perfect, just perfect-right-now. Add 3+3+4 and Jack’s only a natural progression. So live a little, dare to dream. Enjoy your fling while it lasts, before the leaves turn and the birds fly south.

Astrological Oracle Cards – Castelli – Lo Scarabeo 2012 Tarot Mucha – Massaglia – Lo Scarabeo 2014

 Knight of Swords
Temperance Rx | King of Pentacles Rx | 9 of Swords Rx

This month, we find our Warrior charging forth into a vast field of uncertainty! `You’re trying to remain connected, but your compassion feels dried down to a trickle – and that trickle is trying to flow upstream. Not only that, you’re feeling walled in when you thought you’d be at the top of your game. What’s a person to do but sit down and cry? The most maddening part: all this mopiness is mercilessly out-of-character for you!

You’re feeling overwhelmed and in need of new perspective, one that will fill in the gaps between how you’re feeling now and the sense of personal completion that feels so elusive! The success you’re picturing requires an important element in order to work out: care. Charging forward with no mind for the feelings and thoughts of others will only lead to sadness and obstacles all around! You’ve already got the ball moving, so don’t stop now, but stepping on other people’s toes will only set you back further. However, do take breaks: naps are good! Our Ram needs as much rest as possible now to maintain momentum!

Your passions have made way to a new sense of freedom – but what you hoped for still feels blocked somehow! Focus on how this new start is beautiful, and before long the fog of confusion will be cleared by the beaming light of your own ambition! Your optimism is what’s needed to cut through the mysteriously dark emotions you’ve been feeling of late – channel it all into your work through a nurturing filter, and you’ll be back on top before you know it.

The Collective Tarot – the Tarot Collective – Brown Printing 2012

Oooh yeah Taurus. What do we need? A bit of calm after all that crazy late night running around in the wild woods. We Taureans like to have things nice and comfy, and while it may have been hard to access the comfy of late, we certainly had the opportunity to access and embrace our fierce internal strength. Just now I walked over to my tarot cabinet with the intention of selecting a particular deck for this reading, but then I saw the The Collective Tarot by the Tarot Collective, and I was like, yep, that’s the one.

So here we have The Apprentice of Bottles (Knight of Cups) and The Mentor of Keys (King of Wands) to guide us through this next cycle, with courage and wisdom. I’ll let the cards speak for themselves. First up, let us hear from the Apprentice:

I find problems much easier to face if I put on a fancy outfit and leap into the unknown.  I also know that love is easier to connect with when we let go of control, and speak into a space that holds more light. There is something to uncover here that needs your attention. Hold back from the obvious, and take that step that could unravel a more beautiful and mysterious way of being.

And now for the Mentor:

Just take a deep breath with me, Taureans, and slow right down. There is a deep place inside of you that is illuminating your future. It is time to unmask and bring forward your full light – the scarier, fierce aspects as well as the bold and kind aspects – and let them all roll together in a way that leaves you feeling that anything could be possible. Embrace your boldness and those quieter moments, and speak from that place alone. Not all will listen, but those who do will surely connect with the real you.

Go forth in wisdom, Taureans. Xx

Native American Tarot – Magda Weck Gonzalez – J.A. Gonzalez – US Games 1982

Hey there fellow Gem,

You’ve been so busy lately. Super absorbed with all your dreams and visions and goals and magic making that you haven’t had time for much else, including your lover, your friends, and most importantly, yourself.

Your self-care stuff has totally gone out the window. Everything seems more important than down time right now, but it’s so not. Gems even need more downtime, because being air signs we are so prone to anxiety, depression, exhaustion and generally freaking out.

So here’s what’s going to happen:
You are going to make time for yourself outside of daydreaming and dream development. Make a commitment to yourself to do at least one thing every day that qualifies as self-care, not “work”. Have a cup of tea and a biscuit, a sparkly pumpkin bubble bath, take yourself out for a pumpkin spice latte.

You need to make time to look after you, your spirit, your mind, emotions and your bod! You are going to call a friend you haven’t spoken to for ages. That person you’re thinking of right now. Yep, you’re gonna call them for a proper chat. Not just a text or an FB message, call them.

Move your body. Do some Yoga, pole dance, do one of those 80’s aerobics videos on YouTube, or just dance in front of the mirror to some Taylor Swift.

If you’re single you’re gonna take yourself out on a date. Buy yourself flowers and order take-away for one, even If it means you have to order like four dishes because they don’t deliver for one, do it.

If you are loved up then you’re going to pay more attention to your lover, love them lots, go on dates, talk about the big stuff, the meaning of life, spirituality, politics and aliens.

It’s still totally OK to keep daydreaming, we are never going to stop! But keep your daydreams to daylight hours, just for now.

With love and light,

Tarot de St. Croix – St Croix – Devera Publishing 2013 – http://lisadestcroix.com/

Cancerians, a celestial storm has been brewing for you since the summer or perhaps earlier. You’ve been tested; you’ve needed to work hard, and have, in turn,  been rewarded from month to month. The lines are beginning to blur between your highest hopes for yourself, or even for your life, and what is happening from week to week, moment to moment. Right now.

Have you felt a whisper from deep within of cosmic recognition: of your purpose, of your plans? If not, this month, it’s coming. You will be both the one who gives and the one who receives. The dreamer who sees the details of the best possible future and the warrior who deftly crafts the next movement or sentence. You are both the sky that contains the stars and and that hoovers above  the battle-roaming Knight of swords.

You are no longer waiting for the storm. You are the storm. The marriage between the dust of the cosmos, the shadows of an expansive and inspiring future, and the nuts and bolts of right now. As above, so below. Don’t hesitate to let your dreams become a plan, and to let that plan propel you forward. Reality is giving you the green light. You’ve probably been feeling it for months. Make yourself at home in the vast and abundant universe that supports you and your vision for the future.

This is bigger than staying in your comfort zone. This is bigger than your goals for the year. You have an appointment with destiny. The destiny of your choosing. As long as you direct and focus your gaze, as each of the figures do in the Star and the Knight of swords, you will align, flow, and be abundant. It will be as though your purpose was foretold with every challenge that you’ve had to face this year. It will be as though your success was ordained… by you.

Aquarian Tarot – Paladini – 1970 – US Games

The Fool | Knight of Cups

For Leos, and those like me with Leo rising, the month ahead will be a sensory smorgasbord. The fall season will be filled with familiar scents and sounds, triggering memories and dragging old feelings into the light of day. The Fool and the Knight of cups seem to ask ‘where will your heart take you in the days ahead?’ Whether in ignorant earnestness or in enlightened jest, the Fool moves forward; even in the face of those who would challenge their choices; even in the face of their own doubt. Such is the pure expansiveness of the fool, ever-ready to begin.

This month, Leos will play, explore, discover, indulge their curiosities, and receive an emotional payoff: a summons to explore their own depths. This can be as simple as the scent of pumpkins and the memory of a loved one’s pie or as complex as considering a change in direction and/or lifestyle changes, in order to embrace a long-time dream.

The sun is making its retreat, as it does every fall, and as we turn toward darkness and winter, Leos will have a chance to dim their lights and look inward. If you move through the coming month without awareness or, at the least, curiosity about your own desires, you will find yourself at the mercy of a tumultuous storm; like a ship at sea without sails, oar, or a way to navigate. One minute, soaring up toward the peak, the next, sinking into the valley, as if your feelings were so many waves.

If, on the other hand, you are ready to explore, accept, and discover your emotions, dreams, and hidden depths, you will be blessed with release and emotional fluidity. You will face winter with a firmer grasp of the right actions for you.

The Alchemist’s Oracle – Inner Hue – 2014 http://www.innerhue.bigcartel.com/product/connected-free-the-alchemist-s-oracle Silhouettes Tarot – MASA September 2014 http://www.masaseptember.com/silhouettestarot.html

Temperance | King of Wands | 9 Swords

Theme: 3rd Eye Chakra – Connected and Free

Virgo, this month is calling you to pay attention to your intuition.  I know you like to have the details all lined up in front of you in nice, neat rows, but situations this month are going to call for you to act without a trusty, security blanket plan.  And as much as I hate to start a sentence with “and”, having to tell you that even though you are FIRED UP to get moving on that next endeavor, but the advice to cool your jets and just “wait”, is even worse.  I know, I know, sitting still feels like the ultimate slacker move, but in this case, the action of waiting is actually the best way to proceed.

The King of Wands, as the focus, identifies your drive, vision, and purpose.  You are dynamic and have a take charge attitude about your passion (whatever it might be at this time), and you aren’t above dominating those around you to make it happen.  You have the idea, structure, and an “order of events” already planned out and are ready to assign jobs to the drones.  Temperance and the 9 of Swords flanking your energy are the “words of wisdom” to slow down and pace yourself.  Things are moving at breakneck speed, and while that seems like phenomenal progress to you, it feels as though you are rushing through some very important processes.  Temperance is saying that whatever it is that you are trying to create, it’s going to have to be done in manageable parts with lots of “stop/start” to determine if all of your efforts are working or if you are overshooting/undershooting the target.  There is definitely a destination, but the journey is where the most important growth happens.  This slowing down will most likely cause you to become anxious and a bit of a basket-case, as seen by the 9 of Swords, but taking the time to check in with yourself and how you FEEL about what’s going on and the timing of your next steps, will be your best indicator that you are not only on the right track, but that the Universe just sprang for a brand new train.

The Haindl Tarot – Haindl & Pollack – U.S. Games Systems 1990

Libra, this month your card is “Daughter of Swords in the South” and her message is that you’ve got to let your heart lead over your head. Are you not exhausted from all that over-analysing yet? You want to feel confident in choosing a direction that you can commit to now because you’re fed up of winging it. Of course, this is awesome! However, you’re swinging backwards and forwards like a pendulum in your mind as you try to figure everything out before you make a move. Trying to play it safe may feel like a great idea but more often than not it’s the ‘trying’ that ends up getting you in a pickle and creating stagnant or chaotic situations. You don’t need to try, you just need to be. Don’t you know you’re already safe? You can’t make a wrong move here. Whatever you do, will be perfect for you. It always has been and always will be. Over-analysing and trying to anticipate how everything might play out or come together is just giving you a headache. Take a break… Less thinking, more feeling. It’s time to choose simplification over complication and harmony over discord. Say it with me now: EFFORTLESS. That’s what you want so kick out self-doubt and replace it with trust in yourself. You already know the answers. Your intuition is hot stuff and you can trust it.

If you allow your heart to lead on this one, you will find yourself in some magical, mysterious and exciting places. Don’t waste your time worrying about things that are unlikely to even happen because you’re going to need that precious energy – I feel there will be big surprises in store for you and some ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunities arriving with a bang before the month is out!

So say ‘buh-bye’ to headaches and hello to taking back control over your thoughts and in turn, taking back control over your creations. You’ve got the power here Libra, believe in yourself!
