September Tarotscope

Tarot of White Cats – Lo Scarabeo – 2005 Crystal Reading Cards – Rockpool – 2014

Hey there Libra, happy birthday!

Your birthday month may be a super fun time of partying but it comes with some serious assessing of where you are, how far you’ve come and where you’re going next. But most of all you may find yourself asking who you are and who you want to become.

The King of Wands and the King of Swords reversed come in with some masculine energy so even if you just want to go out and drink beer all month, you probably won’t be able to escape the stuff that’s coming up for you. In fact, it’s probably already coming up in the form of difficult encounters with people who are kind of jerks, or just not your kind of people. Folks in your family, peeps at work, friends or even annoying politicians on the six o’clock news. All of this stuff that’s pissing you off is just highlighting to you who you don’t want to be and who you really are.

The Soul Connection Crystal reminds you to seek out those people who really do “get you” and get in some good quality time with them this month too. Invite your soul family over for some drinks, let your hair down and just be totally authentically you for a night.

Some folks and their weird ideas are going to challenge you this month, but drop your sword and grab your wand instead. You don’t have to react with harsh words, dodgy deeds or gossip, you can choose instead to focus on creating a life for yourself full of inspired action and loving intention, because that’s who you really are.

Your birthday month is the perfect time to rethink anything in your life that doesn’t feel like it’s in alignment with who you really are, and start getting closer to that even more awesome version of yourself that you know you’re going to be this time next year.

Love, light and Victoria sponge birthday cakes!

Astrological Oracle Cards – Castelli – Lo Scarabeo – 2012 Tarot Mucha – LWB: Lunea Weatherstone – Massaglia – Lo Scarabeo – 2014

Hello lovely Scorpion! Since we’re getting on to Autumn, it felt appropriate to ask the Seasons for advice. This 4-card spread is based on one from Tarot Mucha’s Little White Book. Let’s take a look at how to use that stinger for strength this month!

Seasons Spread

Spring: What needs creative expression?
9 of Pentacles: Bask in the personal oasis you’ve created for yourself!

Summer: What needs to slow down?
2 of Cups: are you trying to heal yourself through a relationship? Sometimes idealized love can turn into unhealthy expectations.

Autumn: What is ready for harvesting?
Knight of Wands: Things are moving really quickly, and you’re so ready for action that you’re leaping without looking!

Winter: What needs shelter and care?
Nostalgia can be a good thing – reflecting on the ideals you held in simpler times can center you, and also remind you of how far you’ve come!

Hey hey – look at you! Things finally feel like they’re starting to fall into place, and you’re surrounded by love and loyalty. The key to moving on to the next step is internal: this month is all about Scorpio loving Scorpio!

Your passionate ambition is finally being matched, as darkness led into the light of love. Your hope and optimism will carry you through to stability and fresh starts, once you can work through whatever is clouding your mind.

Scorpio sits alone, thinking about life and feeling darn content! Drawing on this feeling of total satisfaction in the daily grind will unlock new worlds of opportunity for creative fulfillment. Knowing that leaning too hard on relationships lately has actually been hindering progress, it is time to focus on self-love to stoke those creative fires! You have the drive to achieve now – go for it. There’s always the possibility of explosive results, but isn’t that part of the spice of Scorpio life? Nothing heals like perspective, and reflecting on the past and everything that you have overcome on the road to Now heals like nobody’s business. Failure is not an option, because you’re awesome!

September Tarotscope

Fantastic Menagerie – Grandville – The Magic Realist Press – 2006

It’s interesting, a whole new month and a whole new season….and yet. There’s a bit more of the same. The more things change, the more they stay the same….I guess. And also, not really. Sure – there are similar things at play here, but really it’s the same and MORE.

While September was about really honing in on what makes you sing, October will be about singing it! Owning it! This month wants you to not only be the maker of the life you want to live, but also to embody that to the maximum. There’s a lot that has built up to get you here, a lot of hardships and darkness mixed with powerful love in all its forms – we’re talking serious blood, sweat, and tears (the sad and the happy). Now is the time to use all that and pour it into something that will sustain you….and also allow for others to feed off that too. You’ll have more than enough to go around, especially if you continue to do the self-care shizz that September was really pushing (don’t forget those lessons so quickly, old habits die hard).

There’s some intense mastery here and ripe potential to really make some yummy shit happen. A lot of this is coming from the past so try not to get snagged up by the lure of sticky nostalgia or old haunting emotions. Center your sights on the tangible things you can do with all these feels and make it come more alive than ever! Honor the dead, but don’t play house with them. Make spooky, delicious magic with the ones you love now. Take everything you’ve learned and share it with a solid mix of discipline, intuition, and gratitude…..it’s time to cultivate and liberate. Light a candle and give us some of those delicious treats you’ve been brewing! I even pulled an extra card, just for us. Now’s the time to sit back and enjoy the glow with those around you who deserve to share in that light. You sexy lil’ boss bonfire, you.

Sep24th tarotscope

Stone Tarot – Alison Stone – http://www.stonetarot.com

“A paradigm shift is slowly unfolding for you, and it likely began its gentle blossoming some time ago. As you move into the autumn the impact will grow more noticeable, like a nagging urge under the surface that you can’t help but pay attention to: change is afoot! Money matters are important to you, and being financially comfortable is likely an important area of your life (Capricorn that you are!). But what happens when your soul starts to pull you in a new direction and your purse strings just aren’t stretching enough to allow you to follow the call? This reminds me a bit of that Julia Roberts movie where she breaks free from high society and spends a year in Italy, India, and Bali “finding herself.” On one hand it’s a beautiful story. On the other hand, the sort of monetary liberty that allows for that kind of adventure is not easy to come by!

So should you just pat your soul on the head and settle for what you have? Of course not! You are a Capricorn, after all, and the Four of Pentacles highlights an aspect of your energetic essence. You are the master of pooling your resources in order to achieve what you wish, even if it takes time to get there, and even if you have to suck it up a little and deal with some discomfort along the way. So this month: figure out what you really want, and then do what you must (clip coupons, buy a bottle of wine instead of going out on the town) to stabilize your bank account toward your goal. You have the power and endurance to see your desires into fruition. What are you waiting for?”

Sep24th tarotscope

The Hermetic Tarot – Dowson & Kaplan – 1980 – U.S. Games

Our first card for you this month Aquarius is The Foolish Man, who tells you that it’s time to leave behind whatever you thought you knew… We spend so much of this journey believing it’s about what we learn along the way, then retaining those lessons and applying that knowledge. It’s a bit confusing when suddenly we have to throw the rule book out the window but that’s exactly what you’ve got to do now. You have just exited some chapters of your life recently where you had learned everything you needed and you were the master of this karmic learning session! Now, you have gone full circle and find yourself at a new beginning.

You are once again the student. This month, you’re going to walk into experiences where you have to respond differently and make some conscious choices to move forward, in ways you would never have agreed to six months ago.  This time requires you to not judge situations based on past experiences but rather see with new eyes – as if you’re experiencing them for the first time. You may feel surprised that what you thought you wanted is now completely different but you’re not going crazy! You’re evolving! Now what is true for you is changing and evolving too. How can everything around you stay the same when you transform within so often?

Yes – you can feel uncomfortable as you take these tentative footsteps into the unknown but there’s nothing to fear! Your second card, The Queen of Pentacles, is here to tell you that your knowledge and wisdom has been embodied and is always within you. You don’t need to keep reminding yourself of what you already know. It is now a natural part of you and you have evolved the way you see, think and feel. You have absolutely got this!

You’re within a big time of  profound change and redirection but as always, it’s all unfolding for your highest good. It will be as stressful or exciting as you allow it to be. Personally… I feel exciting sounds like way more fun!

September tarotscope

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

Who doesn’t have a soft spot for the lovely, lively, light-filled sign of Libra? Two months ago, the reversed Chariot came up for our Pisces tarotscope, paired with the “hang on in there” fortitude of La Force. This month, our upside-down charioteer finally sees light on the horizon – and what light: Le Soleil, the ultimate feel-good, life-giving affirmation. Pisceans can breathe a sigh of relief as we ease back into a Libran flow. Like us, Libra is no stranger to indecision and, at times, plain commitment-phobia. It’s a relief to feel understood and accepted, so go ahead and bask in this moment of mutual appreciation. Like Librans, we know a good thing when we see it and won’t hesitate to dive in with full faith when our dreamboat comes along.

Last month, projects and relationships may have seemed to flounder no matter how much love was invested. Sure, there were moments of satori, when we simply gave up and went with the flow – except, the flow was meager and congested. With the arrival of fall and fluctuating weather, Pisces is back in more familiar waters. Change, challenge, surprise – that’s how we like to roll. It wasn’t easy getting to this point, and our chariot may still be up-ended, askew, or just a little worse for wear. But our horses aren’t earthbound; they take to the air, grow wings, and turn cartwheels across the sky. The wise Piscean tempers fantasy with hard-learned realism. One word of advice: Icarus.

Aquarian Tarot – Paladini – 1970 – US Games

 The Empress | 10 Swords

This month Aries, I come bearing more swords. The swords, in excess, herald many different things: an abundance of thoughts, plans, brain chatter, false stories, fresh ideas. The swords are like clouds, morphing to suit the imagination of the beholder. They clump together like snowflakes on a mountainside, and as a result, they can feel like an intellectual avalanche. While this suit houses some of the most intimidating cards in the tarot, the nature of these cards is more fluid than it seems. Swords are intent. Intent used with consciousness and curiosity is like any tool, empowering. It’s when intent is not used or examined that we end up getting poked, poking ourselves and others, and feeling like we gain nothing but holes.

The Empress and 10 of swords represent either end of a cycle of germination of termination. The Empress is Goddess Demeter in the Aquarian Tarot. She sits with wheat shaft and venus shield, blessing the harvest and presiding over the settlement. She plants the seed for structure, paving the way for the Emperor. The Empress/Demeter is crowned with 12  stars, one for each sign of the zodiac, reminding us of her role as the keeper of the seasons. This birthing energy is not new to Aries, astrological initiators of the zodiac. And yet this particular manifestation of birthing seems to chafe at the Aries desire to move forward.

The Empress heralds beginnings, of the season, ways of eating, and living. The 10 of swords heralds the proverbial end of road. The solid and slow earthy energy of the empress, alongside the  quick footed and sharp energy of the swords, calls to mind the false start or the dead end. Perhaps the unconscious proliferation of false stories. These two cards together point out potential expansion oppurtunities for Aries:

  • Where might your ideas about what is happening in the world, not match what is happening in the world?
  • This month, might you be willing to say the things that you normally  leave unsaid?
  • This month, might you explore feelings relevant to new habits, projects, or germination?

This month Aries, the extra time needed to realize your goals, affords you time to check your assumptions and clarify any misunderstandings.

The Color Mage Oracle – Charles – 2014 – www.thecolormage.com – City Mystic • New York (CMNY) – Jester – 2014 – www.ginniejester.com

4 Swords | 5 Wands 

Advice: 10 Swords
Color Energy: Himalaya – Pure Love

Wow.  So, let’s hurry up and get this month over, shall we?!?  In a nutshell, Taurus, trying times are a’coming and it’s basically going to boil down to you or them. The 4 of Swords is telling us that there may be a need to find “center” early on, because conflict looks as though it will rear it’s ugly head before it’s all said and done.  It’s been a while since we have truly tended to ourselves (especially our heart) and sorted our energy to manageable levels, so we are being reminded and called to do just that.  Resting our bodies, emotions, minds, and tongue will surely be the best thing we can do as it will prepare us for the energetic conflicts that appear to be on the horizon.

The 5 of Wands is warning us of combustible energies, complicated ideas, and an all-round kinetic clash.  This struggle could be internal and/or external, as there may be restless energies that are moving and shaking our firm and steady ground, and you know how much we LOVE that (insert HARD side eye here).  We are usually more or less team players, but when we are firm on an issue, there’s no swaying us and we will dig our hooves in and ride out the storm no matter how long it takes.

With the 10 of Swords as the advice card, we are being urged to let go of our stubbornness, relinquish our hold on whatever is causing us stress, and prepare to rise from the ashes with a new idea and sense of purpose.  This month will more than likely not be an easy one, but one that will remind us to get in touch with ourselves, early and often, to protect our precious energies and to prepare us to navigate turbulent waters.  Remember, if it ever comes down to you or them, always choose you…

Aquarian Tarot – Paladini – 1970 – US Games

Gemini, this is a climate of ordained disobedience; a truth pursuit thematic. Feel free to reject doctrinal domination tools in favor of innovation. In Libra season, Hierophant reversed coupled with Page of Swords, suggests a breakdown in routine is inevitable; as the status-quo approach to daily affairs becomes unreliable all of a sudden. And since Mercury is retrograde in Libra from September 17 to October 9 expect clarity to be missing in action. On October 7 the Sun poses a semi-square to Venus, indicating old habits die hard; this is the day incompatibility becomes certain. However, True Direction emerges October 9 as a beacon of radness because this day delivers direct messages from the Ether on where to go, how to proceed, when and why via Mercury semisextile Venus and Venus semisextile the True Node. But don’t expect the communiques to be all surreal and unconscious. This stuff actually happens, it manifests in real life, it is palpable, tangible and straight up in your face. However, there’s a subtlety involved, as semisextiles are normally behind-the-scenes vibes. Don’t get rattled by whatever awkwardness takes place October 12 when Venus is sesquiquadrate Uranus. Ever wonder why naysayers say nay? Don’t go there today, who cares? A ‘no’ doesn’t dismiss reality. Remember: principles. The so-so clear toes ache in awareness of the cosmic intelligence realization made October 9 still applies and the supreme epiphany sees its first test October 12. Libra Season 2015 closes out harmonious for Gemini with Mercury semisextile Venus October 21, bidding internal conflict over the beauty of the next level goodbye forever.

Tthe Alchemist’s Oracle – Inner Hue – 2015 – http://www.innerhue.com The Wild Unknown Tarot – 2012 -http://www.thewild unknown.com

Greetings, my fellow Cancerians! Our sign is known for being fluid, and this month, you may be called to embrace your endless transitions. After all, you’re not now the same person you were even yesterday, are you? You can’t be pinned down. You are always in a process of metamorphosis. Now, even more so than usual, you may find yourself simultaneously expanding and contracting as you shift into a new way of being.

Although transformation is a magical process, when you’re in the thick of it, it can feel jarring and ugly. This month, you can be served by finding ways to openly examine your emotional reactions to your incessant morphing. Try journaling on these questions: how do I feel about what I am becoming? In what ways am I open to radical change? Where do I feel vulnerable? How can I accept being in this ‘in between’ place?

And an ‘in between’ place it is! You might feel like a cake in middle of baking. You’re no longer raw batter, but you’re not yet fluffy and warm. The key is finding peace as you intuitively navigate this sometimes awkward transition. Listen to that small voice within you that tells you’ll soon emerge a more genuine, loving version of yourself. Activate your innate ability to tap into the comfort that lives alongside of discomfort. Even when the process feels wonky, you are exactly where you’re meant to be.

Aquarian Tarot – Paladini – 1970 – US Games

Strength | 3 Swords

“Sleep, those little slices of death — how I loathe them.” ― Edgar Allan Poe

Ah yes Leo, the 3. of. swords. Reminiscent of the biting-the-big-bullet imagery of the 10 of swords. Except not quite as grand, as though just a “little slice of death.” It can be tempting, when we see a card like this, to jump to dark conclusions. I implore you Leo, as we journey through this tarotscope, don’t be like Edgar Allan Poe. Because this 3 of swords is a trail of consciousness breadcrumbs.

Sleep is the lack of consciousness, the time when we go to the darkness to explore our unknown depths. And explore you will, but the frightening image of the 3 swords did not hit me as the loathsome sleep of the dead. We lose consciousness in sleep, in death, but we also lose consciousness every time we quiet the brain chatter: such as in hypnosis or trance. Consider Instead an interesting alternative – la petite mort, an orgasm.

What what now? “How is the 3 of swords like an orgasm, Alice?” Well, what do you think about during an orgasm? Hopefully, not much! Orgasm is a thing that effectively ends consciousness. Ironically, it can also sometimes expand consciousness. So can dreaming and going into trance. Where do we go when we experience bliss? When we dream? We go within. We listen to things we may not normally have ears to hear. We go to the visceral, un-tampered-with parts, our most authentic selves.

Can you look forward to the situation that inspires you to show up and absolutely requires your courage? Even if it meant a dance with a little bit of death? When working with the 3 of swords remember, there’s more than one way to lose consciousness and sink to the heart of a matter. Use the transformative breath of a jarring experience to wake up and ignite your vibrant Leo animus, allowing you to embody all of your best qualities, and to SHINE.

Queen Cups | 3 Wands

Color Energy: Goldenrod – Stay committed
Advice: 4 Swords

Virgo, this month is calling for you to stick to your guns, but to also have patience in accomplishing what you are setting out to do.  The Queen of Cups energy is one of nurturing, loving emotion, intuition, and receptivity.  You are being called to listen and help others (which comes as absolutely NO surprise), but in that helping others, you are going to have to be patient and let others do for themselves.

As a Virgo rising, I understand the need to help and also set up the game plan, expecting all the players on the field to rise to the occasion and take it to the championship, but this isn’t one of those times.  You are going to be called to help, yes, but it won’t be your job to lay it out for them.  Opening your energy, listening to problems, and offering advice is as far as it goes this month.

The 3 of Wands is our card of active waiting, meaning that once you have helped to plant the seed, your job is to sit back and wait to see if anything fruitful grows from your effort.  Three’s   are about manifestation and bringing things to fruition, but there is a Divine Order that goes along with it.  Virgos are perfectionists by nature and once we have a hand in something, we want to oversee EVERY step; these cards in this month are telling you to have SEVERAL baptist church seats.  You cannot hawk, stalk, or micromanage these efforts – you risk the chance of over-watering and ultimately killing your intention.

The 4 of Swords is a further nod to “pause”.  As the advice card, there is a call to take care of yourself.  Relax, relate, and release as there will be more work for you to tend to and more fires to put out, but you are going to need every ounce of rejuvenated energy to do just that.  Take a breather to do something for yourself.  You will only be as good to someone else as you are to yourself… 🙂
