Channeled Message from Saint Valentine – February 2016

Happy February!  

In honor of Valentine’s Day on February 14th, I thought it would be fun to channel Saint Valentine of Rome to see what he thinks us 21st Century folks should know about love and relationships. While the Catholic liturgical calendar only has him listed as a local saint (according to Wikipedia), we all know better! Here’s what he has to say for Valentine’s Day 2016:

Channeled Message from Saint Valentine

What can you do with your hands this February to show love? My hands shared the power of Christ’s love and were able to heal persons with epilepsy. That was my miracle. But that doesn’t mean that you don’t have miracles in you, too.

You lead much busier lives than we did when I lived on earth and was trying to help those around me. I didn’t intend to become a saint—it just happened after the fact, like it did to so many others.   While the mysteries, the how-to of metaphysical healing combines love and skill, there are so many ways you can harness the positive power of love not just in the time you are in, but throughout the year and over time.

Love isn’t something to just throw a lot of attention to on one day of the year, like the whole promotion of my day on the calendar as a day of love. It builds up false expectations and doesn’t allow you to delve deep into your relationships. If you expect to throw a lot of attention and care to your partner on Valentine’s Day and then back off for six months, you’ll be left with a dead plant on the windowsill.

What I mean is that Love is to be nurtured and tended, like a plant. Some relationships are like weeds—you are immediately kindred spirits and you grow together, wild and crazy and shoot up in no time at all. You don’t have to give them plant food or even bother watering them—they thrive no matter the circumstance. You could pull up those weeds in the corner of your garden and come back in a month—and see them shooting up again, taking another stab at a garden takeover!

Other relationships are like tending a cactus.   It might be prickly on the outside, but there’s a lot more to the cactus than you once thought. Once you know its nature, there is life-sustaining water on the inside. It could save your life on a hot, dry desert day. That cactus can be around for the long haul and even eventually flower if you take the time to tend to it.

And some other relationships are like the oak tree and Spanish moss…or hawthorn and mistletoe—one cannot live without the other. This can be good or bad. Good if the two plants constantly replenish and sustain each other—or terrible if the Spanish moss/mistletoe takes over.

Sometimes, you can be drawn to what you think will be a beautiful plant, a beautiful relationship. But like anything worth having—like that rare orchid or collection of African violets on your desk, or even a country rose—they need tending. Sure, you can bring home some cut flowers from the grocery store, but they will be overpriced and dead in a week. But it’s best to learn about the nature of the plant. Do they thrive best in sun or shade? Do they need extra nitrogen or plant food? Are they happier indoors or outdoors? Do they need to ever be pruned? Then, by learning about the plant’s needs, we learn to care for it over the years. We get satisfaction in how it grows and blesses us.

However, you can’t go and buy a rosebush, bring it home, and expect it to become a sunflower, or a daisy, or an orchid. You get what you buy. And if you decide that you hate the smell of roses, or your skin is inflamed from getting pricked by its thorns, or you just don’t have enough sun in your yard to care for it, then it’s best to pass the plant along to someone who will love and tend and care for it. And these days, people are learning a lot about relationships. They may need to have more than one longstanding partnership to learn what they need to in this lifetime. So, you may look back over your life and see that you ended up with a garden full of plants, with all different types of relationships.

And just because you’re a sunflower, it doesn’t mean your children will be sunflowers, too. They might be Gerbera daisies, or bluebells.

But you might say, “Saint Valentine, there’s no way I could grow a plant, much less a garden. I don’t have a green thumb!” I’ve heard it time, and time, and time again—and I’ve seen it through the souls over the centuries that light candles at my feet. They are unhappy. They ask me for this person or that person. And then, if they get the person they want, they ask me to change them, like magically changing a cactus into a papaya. Or they’re annoyed that their whole life has been taken over, like bamboo.

But let me tell you this. All of you. All of you have the talent and the capacity for love. You are blessed with the opportunity to love while you’re here on Earth. But it’s your choice. And yes, some people have been “born with a green thumb,” while others have to put in more work to learn how to garden. But no matter what, you are all loveable. You are all capable. It’s about the choices you make on how you spend your time.   EVERYone can have a beautiful garden. So can you, if you choose to.

So instead of buying chalky candy in honor of my day, strew rose petals at your love’s bedside, so that they awake and follow a path of joy to you. May you have every joy and blessing on my saint’s day this and every February.

Your January 2016 Tarot Reading!

 

6 tarot cards and 2 crystals on a colorful background.

Top Row CLUES: 3 of Cups – 2 of Swords – Page of Cups. Bottom Row JANUARY Beginning-Middle-End: 10 of Cups – Page of Pentacles – 7 of Pentacles

Your Message for January 2016

Spirit guided me to this layout with six cards in two rows. The BOTTOM row shows the prediction for the beginning, middle, and end of January 2016. The TOP row shows the challenges to this energy—what we’ll all need to process as we move through each part of the month. It zig-zags!

With this month being the beginning of a new year, a new start, it’s time to try some new types of tarot horoscopes and such. If you are reading this page, it means that this reading is for you! This is the energy that’s prevailing right now for YOU in January 2016.

Christine channeled this January 2016 reading using the Morgan-Greer tarot. It’s a shift in physical perspective from the original and created by one of the greats in tarot studies, Mary K. Greer.

Beginning of January (Lower Left) – 10 of Cups

Beginning of January - 10 of Cups

Beginning of January – 10 of Cups

The possibility of Bliss. We’re all coming off of the glow of the holidays. It’s a time to continue to enjoy family and friends. If there are old friends or extended family you haven’t been in touch with, this is a good time to reach out to them. It’s also a good time to go out on the town or take active steps to find a new relationship, if you’re currently single. If you’re coupled, this is a good time to do some reflection on your strengths as a couple—what can you do to make your partner feel more appreciated and loved? Now’s the time to take action and do it.

 

 

 

CLUE for Beginning of January (Upper Left) – 3 of Cups

Clue for the Beginning of January: 3 of Cups

Clue for the Beginning of January: 3 of Cups

Romance, Community (two separate keywords). So, if you weren’t sure you should be concentrating on your emotional health and well-being and your relationships, this card is a clue to do just that. It’s a time to reach out to your community, to start making new friends if you want them. It’s a reminder that we are emotionally fed by our relationships and if there’s any way to do so, do this in person or on the phone, instead of being sucked behind the walls of the internet, social media, and texting. Know that you are valued at every age and stage of life: Maiden – Mother – Wise Woman; or Youth – Warrior – Wise One.

 

 

 

Mid-January (Lower Middle) – Page of Pentacles

Mid-January - Page of Pentacles

Mid-January – Page of Pentacles

This Page will deliver you new information about your finances, job, or creative life. Maybe you’re getting ready to gather your W-2s to do your taxes, and things will suddenly come into focus. Or you’re ready to start a new creative project. The important thing here is to review the information and then make a decision about what will be your next move. Because of Mercury being in retrograde form about the 5-25th of January, your strength will be found inwards—in yourself, your body, and trusting your gut. So, take the facts, and then ask your gut what to do. Don’t rush things if you don’t have to—for example, if you plan on making a major shift in direction, wait until the end of the month.

 

 

CLUE for Mid-January (Upper Middle) – 2 of Swords

Mid-January - Page of Pentacles

CLUE for Mid-January – 2 of Swords

Ah, the 2 of Swords. This card shows up for Spirit to let us know that we are our own worst enemy – but we’re actually FREE. The woman with the swords is blindfolded, but she’s unbound. She’s chosen to appear bound and blind to herself–and to those around her. We get to choose to put the swords down, untie the blindfold, and go on to something new.

With Mercury in retrograde mid-January, be kind to yourself. Don’t overthink things in any part of your life. Let your guard down. It’s time to take a big, deep, breath all the way down to your belly, hold it for 5 seconds, and slowly let it go. Have all of those messy emotions and you’ll be left with a new perspective and new outlook!

 

 

End of January (Lower Right) – 7 of Pentacles

End of January - 7 of Pentacles

End of January – 7 of Pentacles

January’s cards are all leading to this point! First, we’re basking in post-holiday bliss; then we get new information about upcoming opportunities; and finally, we start seeing some positive payout! The 7 of Pentacles for 2016 is saying that we’ve paid our dues for that thing we want. It could be a response to your college applications, or an offer of a new job, or that your health is improving because of your New Year’s resolution to go on the DASH diet for your heart.

Wherever you’ve been putting your effort—you’ll start to reap successes. It might be big, or it might just be a kernel of things to come—it really depends on where you started back in 2015. But know that more good things are coming. After Mercury Retrograde ends, that last week of January will feel like dam has burst—and that hope is coming!

CLUE for End of January (Upper Right) – Page of Cups

CLUE for the End of January - Page of Cups

CLUE for the End of January – Page of Cups

Again, Spirit sends us the Page when we’re ready to move to a new level. We already have a Page for mid-January and here’s our second Page for the end of the month. The Page of Cups says we’ll all be at a new level of emotion and spirituality. It may feel a bit strange. That’s okay. We will be used to these changes by March or April.

Knowing what you want out of your relationships is key. What makes a good friend to you? What qualities are needed for your team to get along at work? What behaviors are acceptable and unacceptable in those around you? Your heart is overflowing, and it will be time to sift through this information. The people around you will tell you who they are through their actions and emotions. LISTEN to them.

It’s time to look at the payout you’re seeing with 7 of Pentacles and think—who do I want with me to enjoy this bounty? Who do I want with me for this new phase of life? Make sure your Tribe is one of the heart.

If you’re looking for a new relationship, you need to persevere and act on the dating information that is coming your way. (You also need to make a top 10 list of positive attributes for your partner and a list of 3 deal breakers and have it in place by January 23rd.)

If you’re partnered, make sure your partner knows that you love them. Wear your heart on your sleeve, and tell them how you feel – don’t make them have to ask, or guess. If you’re the silent type, this is a good time for one of those grand gestures—have fun!

January Overview

You are in for a wild and fun ride in January 2016. Opportunities abound. While many people get caught up in the negative parts of Mercury Retrograde (January 5-25) it is a good time for self-reflection and getting in touch with your feelings. It’s a time to re-examine your beliefs and discard the beliefs you hold that you don’t want in your life anymore. It’s a good time to get rid of negativity and self-defeating beliefs, too.

You really could not ask for a better outcome this January—Spirit says that you’re deserving of a joyous personal life and that they want to give you those things you’ve been working and wishing and waiting for. So go out and get it!

Happy 2016, and may every joy come to you this year!

Bright Blessings, Christine

Lady Mary Queen of Angels – Sun Sign Horoscopes for December!

December is a time for tradition. While we all are on our own spiritual journeys, we are making the shift through the darkest part of the year, in order to come out on the other side—in the light. The energy of this being a Master Number 11 month compounds all of the buzzy, eddying energy available. Harness it and put it to good use during your celebrations.

What are your holiday traditions? How will you usher in the light after Winter Solstice/Yule? Sending a special birthday wish to my Sagittarius and Capricorn friends. Know that you are loved – and that we need to have a huge Christmas in July party in 2016. (Being 6 months younger wouldn’t hurt, either! My Mother brought me home in an Xmas stocking, so I’ve seen every “Merry Birthday” card on the market between my own birthday and those of half of my grandparents. We all had Christmas week birthdays, so I still miss celebrating with them.)

December 2015 Horoscopes

This month’s horoscopes were channeled using Doreen Virtue’s Mary, Queen of Angels oracle deck. While it’s a fun deck to use for the holiday season, you don’t have to celebrate Christmas to enjoy Mary’s insights—she’s a representation of the great Earth Mother and can also be seen as Kuan Yin, or the female version of the Buddha, and even Gaia, goddess of the Earth.

Many of the keywords for Mary’s cards have to do with our attitudes and how to remove energy blockages in order to bring in what’s for our best and highest good.

December’s Message: BLESSINGS

Blessings are coming in for December.

Blessings are coming in for December.

As we being to embrace the holiday season, take time each evening to write down a good thing that happened during the day as well as something you are looking forward to during the month of December. If you keep this little “gratitude” journal of your blessings, you will notice how quickly it snowballs. You’ll be able to take stock of beautiful moments each day, even if things become harried or busy.

Remember that you, your family and friends, your pets, and your loved ones are all blessed. We have all been brought together for our divine purposes, and you, like the angels, do contribute to making the world a better place each day. Thank you for being a part of the blessings on this earth during this holiday season.

 

December Sun Signs

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) ~ Boundaries

Boundaries card on blue background.

Boundaries will help you this December.

Know that you are supported by the angels, Sagittarius, as you go about your way this December. Ask them for any help or assistance you need, whether it is large or small. Flex your angel muscles! As you do, also remember that you deserve to have your boundaries respected. Some of you will need help in setting the boundaries, while others of you need to take a little time to think about situations that could arise this month, so that you can consciously choose your boundaries. You don’t want to learn about your boundaries by having others trample over them.

Follow this edict from the angels, and even if you don’t need them, ask them along for the ride. You deserve to feel content, secure, respected, and loved for this month, and always.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) ~ Optimism

Optimism card on blue background.

Capricorn, it’s time to be optimistic in December!

It’s time to set up some Great Expectations, Capricorn! Open your heart a little more, and let some of those secret wishes and wants come out to play. Expect that your needs will be met, your wishes fulfilled – if you only put in the strength to as k for what you want, or to take that road not taken to get what you need. Maybe it’s that you finally want to go ice-skating outside this December, whether it’s at Rockefeller Square under the big glowing tree, or on the balcony at Whole Foods in Austin.

And if it’s a kiss you want, get to hanging up that mistletoe! Whatever your Christmas or holiday wish is, go for it!

You must choose success for it to be drawn to you. Expect success.

 

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) ~ Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.

Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.

We forgive to give ourselves a new lease on life – not to give the person who wronged us a “get out of jail free” card. People make it sound so easy, and we know it will shift, the release will happen at the right time. Well, this IS the right time, Aquarius. It’s time to accept that person as they are, release them, and make your heart whole again.

If it’s a big forgive that needs to happen, then set yourself up for success before you go to sleep for three nights. Ask Spirit, Lady Mary, or the great Flying Spaghetti Monster to “cut the cords” for this situation.

If it’s a little forgive that needs to happen, get outside, under the stars, and imagine all the negativity from the situation draining into the ground. Ask Mother Earth to recycle the energy and sleep soundly.

Or, you may find that you are unexpectedly offered an apology or another gift. Know that by doing your own release work, whatever that is, you open yourself to be brought new spiritual and emotional gifts (and cookies wouldn’t hurt, either!). You are loved.

Pisces (February 20 – March 20) ~ Quiet

Pisces, take time out for yourself this month.

Pisces, take time out for yourself this month.

You have the answers within you. Go to that quiet place when you want to hear them, Pisces. If you take time to listen, you will be amazed at the wisdom your spirit will offer you. Let go of the memories of Christmas Past.

Lady Mary wants you to allow in your Christmas or holiday future, but you need to set aside a little time for reflection this month. It will serve you well and keep you going as you bop from party to party. Take the rest and quiet time you need to enjoy this delightful month, Pisces. Seek balance and you will find all the things you need.

Reluctant Piscean spiritualists may become baffled at the changes in energy coming up. But, it’s all good.

Aries (March 21 – April 20) ~ Watched Over

Remember to speak with the angels this month, Aries.

Remember to speak with the angels this month, Aries.

When you and those close to you are watched over, you can let go of the strings a bit. Take a deep breath and relax.

If you are a parent/grandparent/parent by choice, let your children take those next steps. Let them stay out an hour later with their friends. Let them try cooking the family dish for the first time. Know that you’ve done a great job in helping them become the young people that they are today. Let them bring home a new boy/girl friend that maybe you don’t like. Trust that if they don’t know what they are doing now, they will very soon.

For friends, colleagues and others. Let go. You are safe, so you can be generous. For example, Phil from work thinks a juicer is a good gift for his wife, because he wants fresh orange juice on the weekend. So what! Or your crazy best friend wants to start a catering business or Etsy shop? It’s time for you to be the sunshine for the others around you.

YOU are the hope-giver right now. Your beaming energy is contagious. You are the emotional equivalent of Santa for grown-ups! And you know why? Because YOU are watched over. You are protected and loved both in this realm and the great beyond.

Taurus (April 21 – May 20) ~ Present Moment

Taurus, your gift this month is to enjoy the present moment.

Taurus, your gift this month is to enjoy the present moment.

Worry is not serving you, Taurus. When you feel that buzzy energy of December 2015 swirling around you, take a time out. Then, do something that will help you in the here and now. Set a time for 15 minutes and do something that will make you grounded in the present moment. Maybe that’s cleaning out a kitchen drawer, taking a shower, walking around the block, or coloring a page in a coloring book.

Bring yourself to the present. And bring those people you love around you so that you can enjoy them in the present. Now is a gift we can give to ourselves, and to others. If you’re single right now, saying “yes” to enjoying the moment will attract folks to you like a magnet! The same is true if you’re looking for new friends. Go to the parties, and say yes to fun this month.

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) ~ Gratitude

Gratitude will bring you contentment and joy this month.

Gratitude will bring you contentment and joy this month.

Gemini, have you ever heard the old Protestant hymn, “Praise God through whom all blessings flow”? Acknowledging the role Spirit (God, Goddess, or even Your Higher Self) played in getting you where you are today will bring you an abundance of blessings this month. Some will be surprises.

To bring in your holiday wishes, know yourself and what you want. Ask Spirit to provide, and continue to do your homework on the other end. Clean out your home or office so there’s room for new blessings to come in. Create a vacuum of physical space. If you want Santa to visit for Christmas, you have to hang up your stocking!

Belief, faith, hope, and gratitude will bring you to a new level of abundance.

Cancer (June 21 – July 21) ~ Action

It's time to get your ducks in a row And move forward this month.

It’s time to get your ducks in a row AND move forward this month.

Aha, Cancer! Lady Mary has caught you with your hand in the cookie jar! It’s time to stop procrastinating—which is happening since there’s a lot of new energy ready to flow in once the dam breaks down. Take action in big ways and small—state your preference when asked what you want for dinner. Practice voicing your opinion, because without it, action has nowhere to follow, nowhere to take you. What’s your biggest dream for the next year? And what small action can you take today to make it happen?

You may feel more like life happens to you instead of for you. This December is the birth of a new cycle for you, if you’re up for it. Time to shake things up! Write up that bucket list, post it on your bathroom mirror, and get crackin’!

 

Leo (July 22 – August 21) ~ Children

Remember holidays of years gone by?

Remember holidays of years gone by?

Have you gotten in touch with your inner child lately, Leo? You’re feeling the fact that you’re an old soul more and more recently. It’s time to release any blocks around your heart. Your heart is so big; that sometimes you feel like it needs to be held back. Not so this month, Leo. Let your star shine, and your heart love. Enjoy your children, your pets, and your family of choice.

Open yourself to the wonder of the season. Remember what it was like to find joy, and beauty, in everyday things. A butterfly. New snow. Riding a skateboard down that hill that scared you. Leo, you can manifest what you desire, if you remember the yearnings of your childish heart.

 

Virgo (August 22 – September 21)  ~ Joy

Time to download some Joy.

Time to download some Joy, Virgo!

Live in the moment, Virgo. Spend time doing things that bring you into the present, with people that make you laugh, or make your heart ache in a wonderful way. You deserve to be surrounded with those people who enjoy doing what you do, where you can all escape into the moment.

Join a roller derby. Dance. Play in a band. Build a gazebo. Or run away to join the circus. Move to Portland.

Shake things up, and enjoy the people, places, and things that you love.

 

Libra (September 22 – October 21) ~ Mother

Libra, Lady Mary offers you a Mother's blessing this month.

Libra, Lady Mary offers you a Mother’s blessing this month.

We can all open our hearts to the divine mother, regardless of whether we are male or female. This season is a time to reach out to others who may be in pain. If you’re in emotional pain yourself—this is a time to put out some tentacles of trust and latch on to those helpers who can bring you back into the light.

Mother is the divine nurturer, the divine safe space. She brings us peace along with hope for new beginnings. Let this December be a time for you to bring those you love together and shift from darkness to light. Winter Solstice, or Yule, is the birth of the light half of the year. Know that the light is coming, physically, literally, and emotionally. Yule begins an important 6-month cycle for you, Libra. What will you bring into the light with you? What’s worth keeping for the journey?

Scorpio (October 22 – November 22) ~ Tenderness

Tenderness means that the locks on your heart are ready to open to a new level this month.

Tenderness means that the locks on your heart are ready to open to a new level this month.

Scorpio, you can be strong and merciful at the same time. You may be made into a Good Samaritan of sorts or be assisted by one this month. It is time to contact with new people and ideas. Know that you are filled with the Divine. Of course, don’t do anything stupid—but know that you have the power to take on anything. Consider the amount of power needed to get the job done. Your strength, your heart, and your influence is larger than you may think. Don’t power wash your wine glasses. Use the right amount of energy to get the job done.

If you’re willing to show a bit more of your soft side, love will be drawn to you. Irresistibly. Enjoy the party!

 

Sending every joy to your and yours in this holiday season.  Have a wonderful December!   ~ Christine

November 2015 Horoscopes

This month’s horoscopes were channeled using the Golden Botticelli Tarot. It’s a beautiful deck in the style of Renaissance painter Botticelli who is known for the work “The Birth of Venus.” As much Renaissance artwork was on themes from the Bible, there are a lot of Christian themes in this deck, not just ancient Greek and Roman gods and goddesses. You’ll find the Pope, the Virgin Mary, and a host of angels waiting for you in these cards.

November’s Message: 10 of Pentacles – Coming Home

a path of 10 coins leads to a cozy house.

November’s card is the 10 of Pentacles.

While the adage “Home is where the heart is,” may sound like a cliché, this card shows us that the part to our heart’s desire is more straightforward than we think. When you connect into your heart energy and let the noise around you die down, your body know what feels like “home.” Is that a place, a person, both? Make a beeline towards that which provides you security during this Thanksgiving month of November. The goddess Vesta says, don’t let anyone come and rest at your hearth who does not belong in the home of your heart.

 

 

 

November Sun Signs

Scorpio (October 22 – November 22) ~ 9 of Wands

Scorpio: 9 of Wands

Scorpio: 9 of Wands

Happy Birthday, Scorpio! You’re at the end and the birth of another year of life on this glorious earth. The message of the 9 of Wands is that of completion and rebirth. Follow your passions for this month (and the upcoming year). Do not take your eyes off of the prize. Keep your eyes on the road and the steps you need to put in place to make that happen. You have put your ducks in a row to take flight into your new adventure.

 

 

 

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) ~ (XXI) The World

Sagittarius: The World

Sagittarius: The World

Dear Sagittarius, you are not on a lonely island. In reality, you are swimming in a sea of possibilities. Botticelli’s Venus is here to tell you that the world is your oyster! Everything and everyone you touch will bask in your glow. If you feel upset or disconnected from those around you, make sure you get some rest time to sit still and connect to the love that surrounds you—the world really is at your fingertips. Anything is possible. Bask in it.

 

 

 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) ~ 1 of Pentacles

Capricorn: Ace of Pentacles

Capricorn: Ace of Pentacles

Guess what? With two angels and one pentacle, it’s time to start your new creative endeavors NOW, not at New Year’s. I you’re looking to start a creative project, like a novel (NaNoWriMo, anyone?), make an investment, or look to gain news skills or a new career, you’ve got to start now. And that’s just like the Capricorn—s/he’s climbing up that rocky mountain while everyone else is lollygagging around. Know that you are blessed by spirit and ask for angelic guidance as you start this new endeavor.

 

 

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) ~ 9 of Chalices (cups)

Aquarius: 9 of chalices

Aquarius: 9 of chalices

Aquarius, you aren’t easily satisfied by the same things as the people around you. There’s some sort of disconnect and it’s time to drink from the full cup of life. It’s time to find the others who think like you do—whether that is a new bestie, business partner, or a passionate love interest. In the right environment, you have the capacity to feel so much joy and contentment, but you have to take the wheel. If you see someone who looks as out of place as you feel, reach out to them. Your capacity for empathy is a balm to those around you, especially this month.

 

 

 

Pisces (February 20 – March 20) ~ 9 of Swords

Pisces: 9 of Swords

Your intent is the strongest tool in your arsenal this month, Pisces. Don’t overthink things, but set your intention and back it up with logical action. Don’t let others push you around. Be thoughtful in what activities and projects you take on in the next few weeks. Make sure they line up with your personal ethics and goals. Have faith. You’ve worked hard and a change is coming soon.

 

 

 

 

Aries (March 21 – April 20) ~ 2 of Pentacles

Aries: 2 of Pentacles

Aries: 2 of Pentacles

Pan’s sons and daughters await your orders. Get out into nature this month as a way to relax and unwind. Enjoy the crisp fall winds and the crunch of leaves below your feet. The dear little goat foot god and goddesses want you to be as bouncy as those hippos in pink tutus in Fantasia dancing to Ponchielli’s opera. Let whimsy be your guide. Know that if you follow what makes you laugh till tears come to your eyes that you will always have enough financially, spiritually, and joyfully.

 

 

 

Taurus (April 21 – May 20) ~ 6 of Swords

Taurus: 6 of Swords

Taurus: 6 of Swords

In the Rider-Waite tarot deck, a man and a woman start on a journey, with six swords accompanying them in their boat. For Botticelli, however, this is not the case, Taurus. It’s time to choose which perspective, which journey you will take. Will you stay in the same place, stuck at home with your thoughts? Right now, your point of view is creating a barrier between you and those around you.

You have three choices. Choice #1: stay in your comfortable fortress, because you are right—you’ve thought it through and know it in your bones. But, being right can sometimes get lonely. Choice #2: Take the high road, concede, and watch the circumstances around you shift in an instant. With this choice—you’ll gain the wisdom of being able to see things on a much more universal level without much effort. You’ll shoot up, like a weed, in your personal growth. Choice #3: You can take that boat that the couple wanted to use—but you must leave your swords—your preconceived notion—behind – you’ll learn to take the sails and will feel more in control of your life if you’re brave enough to shift the situation completely.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) ~ (XII) The Hanged Man

Gemini: XII The Hanged Man

Gemini: XII The Hanged Man

Ah, Gemini, at this time of the year where the opening of the month features Day of the Dead and Guy Fawkes day, it makes so much sense that your twin-view of the world would land you here, as the hanged man. Can you just sit and enjoy the place you’re in this month? Forcing the matter is not going to help things right now. Being able to sit in the space of indecision is in itself a choice that takes an open heart to accomplish. You have that big heart—a twin-sized heart! Put off any big decisions and changes until next month. Sit tight, Gemini.

 

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 21) ~ King of Chalices (cups)

Cancer: King of Chalices

Cancer: King of Chalices

The King here reminds us of that Seinfeld episode where Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer have a Contest to see who can be the “master of their domain” for the longest period of time. So, the question is—does falling head over heels make you feel more smart (like Jerry, George, and Kramer) or giddy and distracted (like Elaine)? You may feel like all the power is in the people around you and that you have no control over your emotions, your soul mate, what will happen to you, et cetera. But in truth, you are the one who knows your heart best. You are the one with the capability to tap into your emotional and spiritual legacy–to create whatever your heart desires.

Your question this month is—do you channel that creativity or drive better on your own, or working with a partner?

Leo (July 22 – August 21) ~ Knight of Swords

Leo: Knight of Swords

Leo: Knight of Swords

Deep thoughts. New thoughts swirl around you and life is opening up in ways you never expected. Situations feel like they are changing quickly as you are provided with new information and new ways of thinking. While those around you are powering down for the holidays, this is a time filled with new insights for you, Leo. Harness this holiday energy to bring you together with new friends along with those people you haven’t seen in a long time. You’re going to hit a Eureka moment this month if you open yourself up to new stimuli from parties, get-togethers, targeted Google searches, and making space for the new.

 

 

Virgo (August 22 – September 21)  ~ (XIV) Temperance

Virgo: XIV Temperance

Virgo: XIV Temperance

Moderation as you approach the holidays is key, Virgo. Enjoy yourself, but stay grounded. Take the middle path—don’t go all out, but also don’t do so much nesting that you cut yourself off from others. Your family, friends, and coworkers need you as an example of sanity in this season of holiday mayhem. This may sound like a downer—but it’s really not. Temperance knows how to “have it all.” It’s time to think about what “having it all” would mean to you—what parts are necessary for maximum personal and spiritual growth, for maximum companionship, for maximum joy. You deserve to “have it all” in a healthy and happy way. Do what you need to do to pull things into balance—and remember: it’s okay to delegate.

 

Libra (September 22 – October 21) ~ (V) The Hierophant

Libra: V The Hierophant

Libra: V The Hierophant

How do you see yourself? If you were a guru and had a following of people who were supposed to learn and grow from your example, what message would you share with them?   What message do you need most? Sit quietly and listen. Is it: “You are divinely loved.” “You bring joy to others.” “You are forgiven.” “We are all one.” Who IS your imaginary hierophant? Is it Pope Francis? Jiminy Cricket? Archangel Michael? Or the Caterpillar? Whoever it is, channel that energy and use it this month.

 

 

 

 

Sending bright blessings, joy, and the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday to you all!   Enjoy your November and our travels towards the darkest part of the year–Winter Solstice.

October’s Channeled Horoscope Uses the Morgan-Greer Tarot.

We’re all waiting with bated breath for the weather to turn chilly down here in Texas. I remember the gorgeous leaves and the changing of the seasons from when I lived in Indiana and upstate New York. It was a feast of beauty for the eyes and the soul. And a time to break out the cute sweaters! Here, we wear shorts whenever we can, and enjoy the brief bursts of rain turning everything green once more. Leaves will fall eventually…maybe for Thanksgiving?

October 2015 Horoscopes

This month’s horoscopes were channeled using the Morgan Greer Tarot. This deck riffs on the traditional Rider-Waite, but has richer color saturation (versus the traditional wood cuts) and focuses more on people and relationships in its imagery. It’s a wonderful deck to use if you want to keep all the symbolism of the Rider-Waite, but want something with a bit of pizzazz.

October’s Message: The Ace of Swords – Time for a Do Over!

October's Message: Ace of Swords

October’s Message: Ace of Swords

We’ve come through the Fall Equinox and we’ve progressed through the blood moon eclipse of September 27th. The result is that Spirit is providing us with a clean slate, or a do-over if we need one. In October, Spirit supports us all in endeavors that use our brains, and our bodies. This can be manifested through solving an old problem that nagged and nagged at us, but a new solution pops out of nowhere. Or, that exercise or meditation practice that was always so hard to start—give it a try now, even if it means we give ourselves a goal like, “I’m going to go and stand on the treadmill for 5 minutes per day.” By thinking of doing things in a new way, we break out of old patterns and can achieve victory more quickly. If there’s something we want, it’s time to get started on “thinking outside of the box.”

October Sun Signs

Libra (September 22 – October 21) ~ (VII) The Chariot

Libra: VII The Chariot

Libra: VII The Chariot

Have you ever heard the theme for the old TV show, Bonanza? The dotted melody pushes you along and you get the sense of freedom, of just flying by, being at one with your horse, with the wind in your hair. The Chariot provides you with freedom, with relief. And since you have this card in addition to the Ace of Swords—you’ll be able to bring wonderful things into your life this October. Depending on what you want—it might not take a month (could be shorter/longer), but you can sure as heck cut off some travel time—the burden and gift of this month is this: You can have what you want—but you have to KNOW what you want. You have to get confident enough to KNOW it in your BONES. If your horse is wheeling in circles, it’s fun for a while, but can eventually make you feel a bit sick. Not sure where to start? First, write it down (or make a Pinterest board). Second, ask for help from the Universe—and if you’re a spiritual type like so many of us are, CHOOSE a particular entity, even if you’ve never prayed. Focus that laser beam.

Scorpio (October 22 – November 22) ~ 10 of Swords

Scorpio: 10 of Swords with sunstone and Red Jasper stones.

Scorpio: 10 of Swords with Sunstone and Red Jasper stones.

With the Ace of Swords as your companion card (above for October) you’re going from 0-60 (Ace to Ten of Swords) in 5 seconds. You’re a well-oiled machine—but everything has to be prepped and in order to make the journey. Get an oil check or a tune up on your car if you drive. Scorpio, your goal this month is to find the middle way through. Follow the balanced path—but start embracing your shadow side.

It’s easy to overthink because you’re smart as a whip and like to GSD (Get Stuff Done). Prioritize. You’ll move your mountain. Also, try to fly a little under the radar—only tell those people who truly have your back about your plans to take over the world (or your love life, or your workplace). Don’t give the naysayers, the jealous folks, or the haters any energy to take you down. Not necessarily stealth, but quiet confidence as you progress through October and  GSD.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) ~ (XVII) The Star

Sagittarius: XVII The Star

Sagittarius: XVII The Star

Near the close of the Major Arcana, the tarot has the Moon, the Sun, and the Star. Of the three, the Star has the wisdom of being able to balance the darkness and the light. Her waters are calm, but have a swift undercurrent to take you to your destination, while the Star, like the rainbow, has the promise of a happy end. The eight stars above her are the number of infinity, of continual manifestation. It’s a reminder to bring your bliss to pass.

What will your happy ending be this month, Sagittarius? Is it a hot date with a new paramour? Is it a comfortable evening sharing a barbecue outdoors with your significant other? Is it being surrounded by a group of cheering fans at a Rush concert, who know the words to every tune? The Star is a reminder to follow your bliss. By doing so, you’re feeding your soul. It’s a must.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) ~ 9 of Pentacles

Capricorn: 9 of Pentacles

Capricorn: 9 of Pentacles

Capricorn, with the suit of pentacles you really can’t go wrong. You’re the one who’s always working, even on your day off. It’s time to cash in on all of that work! It’s time to bring your life back into balance. The Ace of Swords for October provides easy passage, and your necklace of pentacle coins, hard work, experiences, are lined up around your neck, like a string of beads.

What will you do to nurture and to feed yourself; emotionally, in your relationships, and spiritually during October? Relax and enjoy the fruits of your labors. In November, you’ll be starting an entirely new cycle. Take October and bring the people you love around you; those people who make up your family of choice. Also, if you’d like to have an animal Spirit Guide, now is a good time to ask. This animal can show up in the physical or the astral. There’s several ways to find them: 1) If you have a pet, sit quietly with them and ask if they’d be your Guide. –Or—2) Sit in meditation, and see what the first animal is that pops into your mind. –Or– 3) If you’re ready for a new pet, see about adopting one. –Or– 4) Work with a set of animal totem oracle cards. You can either choose the card with the face side down, OR, you can go through the deck and see which animals you are drawn to. When you’re all done—ask your Spirit Guide Animal to help you in every day things, especially around your home. It’s time!

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) ~ (I) The Magician

Aquarius: I The Magician

Aquarius: I The Magician

You’re at a crossroads, Aquarius. It’s time to get the party started! Your talents and abilities have come together and you’re at a new level of mastery. The Magician, combined with your Ace of Swords for October, means that you’ll have increased success with your goals this month, as long as they are thoughtfully chosen. (And acted upon, of course!)

As the Magician, you have the power to create something out of nothing—you see the opportunities that others do not. You have myriad options: you can choose among goals such as starting/finishing your education, finding a vocation, strengthening or creating loving relationship/s, or improving your financial situation through employment or investments.

See where your passion leads you, and find a partner in crime—will you met with an accountant, a resume writer, or attend a speed-dating event? Let those who can curate experiences for you “add to your magic” so you can enjoy the process.  You can do magic.

Pisces (February 20 – March 20) ~ 5 of Cups

Pisces: 5 of Cups

Pisces: 5 of Cups

Pisces, it’s time for you to clean house. You need to create a “vacuum” in your life for new things to come in by getting rid of something old. For most Pisces, this will be stepping back from some people and relationships.

Please reassess values and beliefs this October before you take any action! If you have a trusted friend or therapist that you can run things by, that would also be helpful. The people around you do not have to agree with you (and you’ll find many do not—but it’s entirely okay), but they do need to respect you and be on your side.

If the people around you are helpful friends, coworkers, and loved ones, then move on to the physical realm. What are you attached to? Is there an area in your life where you’re feeling stuck? Take a look at that area, and see what you can do to clean out.

And if all else fails—just start by cleaning out a bookshelf, or a junk drawer, or even your underwear drawer. By decluttering, you’ll start bringing new energies in—and it’s going to be fun, so don’t cry over the spilled cups. It’s like a poker hand—you’re trading out 3 cards to get the perfect full house.

Aries (March 21 – April 20) ~ 10 of Pentacles

Aries: 10 of Pentacles

Aries: 10 of Pentacles

Ah, the elusive 10 of pentacles. Most of the time, 10s are about overdoing it, or starting all over again at the beginning. But the 10 of pentacles, Aries, is a jackpot. You have all your ducks in a row. This is a card that indicates success, comfort, creativity, and a loving home. It just “buzzes” with positive energy!

Basking in the contentment of knowing yourself and your own wishes. Know that you stand in power. Don’t leave behind those you love–bring in your partner, friend, or your family into your safe and comfortable haven. You need to share your “secret sauce.” For the curious, tell them how you got what you have in this situation. It could be something really easy for you, but difficult for another. You’re now the mentor—and by giving back, good things will flow in.

If you’re single, this is a great spot from which to start dating again. If you’re partnered, do know that you’ve reached a crossroads—enjoy being partners in crime. Let yourself look up at the stars and wonder, “If we were able to do THAT—what else can we do?” It’s like a joyful version of “me and you against the world.”

Taurus (April 21 – May 20) ~ (VIII) Strength

Taurus: VIII Strength

Taurus: VIII Strength

What thing, when brought into control, would reap you tons of benefits? This is a wonderful time to start good habits that have may have been difficult in the past. Maybe you’re single and need to go to one social event and on one date per week. Maybe you want to start applying for new jobs, but just can’t sit down and compose your resume. Maybe you’re tired of a health issue taking over your life.

Know that this is the perfect time to move forward. You will be given additional resources to help with the problem at hand. Part of this is an inner strength that you’ll build up to the next level. But, the other part of this is knowing that you don’t have to do it alone. There are helpful people at hand who want to give you the secret of taming your particular lion. And once you have that trick—the people around you will be amazed. Know that you can do it. And if you need to, put it into baby steps (or as Sark says, micromovements). What can you do in 2 minutes that will strengthen you in this situation? Then, what can you do in another 2 minutes? It’s time for skill building that will lead to long-term results.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) ~ Queen of Swords

Gemini: Queen of Swords

Gemini: Queen of Swords

You, dear Gemini, know how to balance logic and love. It’s one of the benefits of being the sign of the twins—you get twice the wisdom this October. Expect that people will come to your for advice this month, Gemini. It’s gong to be fun, because you’re going to find that you have skills and resources that you didn’t know that you had in place. You’ll learn more about yourself.

The Queen of Swords combined with the Ace of Swords means it’s time to cut through the clutter. Getting what you want should be easier now than it has been in the previous 6 months or so. (As long as you’re not trying to force a person to do what you want!) Look through the Queen’s eyes—act as if you ARE the Queen who knows it all, even if you don’t feel like it. Put on the Queen’s mantle.   For men, take on the energy of mastery found in the queen, but check in with your heart and feelings a bit more. That will give you the gifts of the sacred feminine that you need right now, while strutting in your masculine glory! For all genders, by walking the walk, and talking the talk, you will shift situations into positive outcomes. Due to your gregarious and dual nature, Gemini—the energy’s going to feel so nice this month to you. As a result, you may get distracted. Focus is key to success.

Cancer (June 21 – July 21) ~ (XV) The Devil

Cancer: XV The Devil

Cancer: XV The Devil

So, Cancer, what’s the issue that’s plaguing you? You Cancers have such generous hearts that sometimes people will want to take advantage of you and your loving energy. Because of that, this is a good time to integrate your shadow side with the everyday love you emit. You bring people together. Share your love, support, and friendship for those who appreciate it and say thank you.

Let the Devil be the gatekeeper for this month and be of service to you. Go ahead and examine your shadow side—what does your darkest self want to do? What bad habits do they have? And finally, how can you use a touch of your inner bad boy/bad girl to get what you want? Harness your dark side to fuel your passions—because you’ll be going right back into the light. You can’t stay here with the devil—it’s not your nature. This is a sign. Be selfish this month in a good way—access your passion, drive, and heart. Explore the dark depths to find out what it is you REALLY want.

If you’re one of those people who can’t pick a restaurant (or going through that phase) you’re ready—you’ve got to go deep and pull up that selfishness. Use it to create the next big thing! Do you want a mate you think is hawt? Do you want to perfect your man cave? Do you want to spend a day reading trashy novels or watching Lifetime movies? Do something selfish for yourself. It will give you your mojo back, and you’ll be of service to others in the end—trust us.

The Devil is about releasing the chains that you think are holding you back, but they’ve actually slipped loose. You can walk away at any time.

Leo (July 22 – August 21) ~ (III) The Empress

Leo: III The Empress

Leo: III The Empress

The Empress is a wise woman—the one who can make decisions from a place of wisdom and skill. If you’re feeling adrift and need a mentor, this is a good time to seek someone out for assistance. To bring the right person in, try and go analog. Ask your friends for help and go to at least two events this month where you’ll meet someone new. You’re ready to learn about new solutions and new ways of doing things.

If you’re feeling confident and secure, know that the opposite may occur. It’s time to look at your skill set and acknowledge what you bring to the table.

Leo, What are your special talents and skills? It could be anything from making the perfect tamales, to counseling the lovelorn, to setting up a website. Take a half hour and write down everything it is you know how to do—let your skills put a spring in your step! It’s time to bring some new people into your circle. The right people will share your enthusiasm. It will be magnetic! Who do you want to draw in?

Virgo (August 22 – September 21)  ~ King of Swords

Virgo: King of Swords

Virgo: King of Swords

Virgo, you mastered Strength in September and here in October you reach another level of Mastery—the King of Swords. It is time to lie out your carefully made plans and start executing them. With the support from Spirit in the Ace of Swords (for October) and your ultimate card of the King of Swords—you rule the suit of Air. Your powers of thought, reason, and discernment are here to help you.

You’re not going to be able to help bringing other people along for your adventure. Think about whom you want to join you—otherwise you’ll have a huge group at your home, eating your pantry bare like poor Bilbo Baggins in the Fellowship of the Ring! Keep your arms and heart open—but be discerning. You choose whom to bring into the inner circle. You choose who belongs to your Fellowship.

There’s a place for everyone. And have fun!

Enchanted Tarot Horoscopes – September 2015

Channeled Tarot Horoscope by ChristinethePsychic.com - September 2015

Channeled Tarot Horoscope by ChristinethePsychic.com – September 2015

 Doesn’t September always make you think about going back to school, regardless of whether you have kiddos in the house? It’s time to buy a new outfit or two, to think ahead to the holidays coming up, and to try to hold on to the last bit of summer. Barbeques and pool parties galore dot our weekends, and we look forward to cooler days to watch baseball outside or take the dog on a long walk in the shade. And less sweating—that, too, at least here in Texas. Trixie has me jogging a bit every day to keep her from puling at the leash—and I’ll end up a runner by default at some point.

September 2015 Horoscopes

This month’s horoscopes were channeled using the Enchanted Tarot. This deck is tactile in nature as each card was created as a quilt and then photographed. So much intention and Light has been sewn, quilted, and appliquéd into each card.

September’s Message: The Wheel of Fortune

September's Message for All: 10 - The Wheel of Fortune

September’s Message for All: 10 – The Wheel of Fortune

September is another new year, a month of change. While we often have certain expectations as to what we, or our kids, will learn at back-to-school time, instead; reexamine. It’s time to play the odds, to have a bit of lady luck come your way. In order to have the winning odds, you’ve got to act as if you are the “house” (of the casino). The House knows that it’s going to win, eventually—because it has the odds and the resources to continue playing.

If you decide to back off and just let the situation unfold as it may—you may get very lucky, or you may end up with the leftovers. There’s nothing wrong with that, but–By creating the feeling that you will win, you can bring success into view. For example, if you want a certain type of car—go and take one for a test drive, even if you have no intention to buy it right now. Put the “feeling” of success into you body, just like you would practice the perfect slam-dunk, or Bach etude. It’s all beautiful.

September Sun Signs

Virgo (August 22 – September 21)  ~ 4 of Wands

Virgo: 4 of Wands

Virgo: 4 of Wands

Everything is in balance for you this month, Virgo. If you’re feeling unsupported, reach out—there’s someone willing to have your back for whatever adventure you’d like to embark on. Create a garden around you, or a new home brew set up, or anything that will fuel your passion and zest for life. From this place of stability, you can create things for yourself that didn’t seem possible in the past.

The 4 of Wands is also traditionally associated with love, marriage and the expression of new levels of commitment in your relationship. It’s the foundation from which to create a joyful home. So, if your relationships are floundering, it’s time to give them some TLC.

 

Libra (September 22 – October 21) ~ Prince of Pentacles

Libra: Prince of Pentacles

Libra: Prince of Pentacles

The Prince of Pentacles is here to take you to the stars, Libra. It’s time for you to announce to the world your wishes and dreams. It’s time to take a risk from a place of strength and virility. It’s okay if those around you don’t agree with you—it’s time to distinguish your voice from the chorus of those around you. The fears of those around you need to be discarded as you move forward.

You will have followers—they may be people who share your dreams, or even romantic partners. Your voice is so persuasive that this time, Libra, that you could convince the very trees to uproot themselves, Ent-like, and follow you over the mountains to the sea.

 

Scorpio (October 22 – November 22) ~ (4) Emperor

Scorpio: 4 The Emperor

Scorpio: 4 The Emperor

The Emperor is a man of the ages, Scorpio. His power can be used for good or evil. The question is: Are you the emperor, or are you the subject? Wisdom is more easily gained when you have all of the information. If you are the emperor, you need to get up off of your throne and get your hands dirty—find out what you need to know for yourself. You won’t have quite enough information even if you rely on trusted family members, friends, or co-workers. This is a time when you need to experience things to move ahead.

If you’re the subject: Whom are you putting up there on the throne, on a pedestal above you? Are you giving away your power? While we can learn so much from others—we learn more and get better answers when we remember that we are all equal members of the human race. Institutions can to make us believe that we’re not worthy unless we follow the path assigned to us. However, we’re all equal in Spirit. We all have so much to learn, and to share with others. You have a unique contribution, Scorpio.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) ~ (11) Justice

Sagittarius: 11 Justice

Sagittarius: 11 Justice

Sit, soak up, and enjoy your power this month, Sagittarius. You are the sword and shield who is making things better for those to follow. What will be your legacy? Who will it be for? Is it for your children, your students, for future generations, or for everyone?

It’s time to take the middle path and stay in balance for this month. Now is also a good time to contact your financial advisor and check on starting or adding to any investments. Things are going well right now, so it is a good time to start saving for the future.

Be proactive about repairs and preventative maintenance of your body and your home. For example, schedule that annual checkup with your doctor or dentist. Or, go ahead and repaint the living room, or have someone replace those rotten shingles. You’ll feel great afterward!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) ~ (16) Tower

Capricorn: 16 The Tower

Capricorn: 16 The Tower

Capricorn, change is a-coming! While this month may end up looking like one chaotic situation after another, you will successfully make it through to the other side.

Give yourself the upper hand in this situation. Here are three methods to ride out the storm: 1) Instead of being pulled into the chaos, try to stay in the eye of the storm. This will give you some peace as things change around you. You don’t have to engage. 2) Think long term. Know your long-term plans. This way, you can bend the storm to your advantage. 3) Finally, you can even be a tornado-chaser. Use this vortex of power that’s gathered around you to take an excitement-filled ride to the next level.

After the storm is the dawn. After the storm is new growth, green grass, and a happy outcome. Take good care of yourself this month, and be sure to do things that make you happy.

Watch lots of funny movies, make your favorite meal, and kiss those you love.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) ~ 7 of Hearts (Cups)

Aquarius: 7 of Hearts (Cups)

Aquarius: 7 of Hearts (Cups)

In the Enchanted Tarot, Aphrodite uses her magic touch to keep all seven hearts in the air, enclosed by an eighth heart, under the light of the moon and the stars. Love overflows for you. It brings you the power of a magician, who creates something out of seemingly nothing. You have skills and support around you that you’re not aware of Aquarius.

It’s time to harness your powers to bring what you want to pass—is it riches? Love? A new home? It’s time to expose the deepest wish of your heart and to go for it. The trick here is that it’s important to think of the outcome and not be attached to HOW it manifests. Ask Archangel Zadkiel to help you clear out any negative or muddled energy holding you back. Can you give a little bit of your worries to Spirit, and open the door to see a broader vision of what you want? Instead of just grasping that little heart with all your might, imagine bringing them together into the eight heart of infinity and bliss, all sponsored by mighty Aphrodite.

Pisces (February 20 – March 20) ~ 2 of Wands

Pisces: 2 of Swords

Pisces: 2 of Swords

Dear Pisces,

Why have you decided to participate in this standoff? Instead of overthinking your situation and staying stuck this month, let go and see what gifts you are given. You feel like you are at a crossroads—and you are. But, a crossroads only shows two outcomes. This or that. Us or them. Black or white—instead of the daily life we live filled with every color of the rainbow AND all the shades of gray.

Take a step back from the supposed problem at hand—take a little vacation form it, because it will be there as long as you’d like it to be there. You don’t have to “opt in” or “opt out.” There doesn’t have to be all the drama here that’s been whipped up about what school to attend, what job to take—or whether you’ll ever date again. There’s a web of opportunities open for you. This month, Pisces—please go take a day and do something that gives you joy. If you’re not sure of what that is—maybe it’s time to make a bucket list of some fun things to do before you hit your next birthday that ends with an “0”—whether that be 20, 30, 40, 50, or even 80.

Love, Your Guides

 Aries (March 21 – April 20) ~ 9 Swords

Aries: 9 of Swords

Aries: 9 of Swords

Aries, you’ve worked this situation out—this is going to be as good as it gets. If you’re in a good situation, soak it up and enjoy it! Have a party and invite everyone to celebrate with you. Maybe you’ve just finished your education, or are moving into a new job. And if you’re mourning the end of a relationship, a job, or a loved one who’s crossed over—have a celebration. Celebrate the person you have become, either because of or despite the person or situation. Have a divorce party and wear red. Celebrate your loved one and leave a plate at the table for them.

You’re at the best place for the swords—if you’re not feeling sure about this, it’s a good time to be turning your mind into an ally. The 10 of swords can mean that you’ve overdone things—and right now at the 9, you’re at the apex of things. You’re the top!

Taurus (April 21 – May 20) ~ Ace of Hearts (Cups)

Taurus: Ace of Hearts (Cups)

Taurus: Ace of Hearts (Cups)

In the Enchanted Tarot, the Ace of Hearts is not accompanied by the traditional cup. Instead there’s an urn. In ancient Egypt, they believed that the best place to make decisions wasn’t in the mind, but in the heart. As a result, they preserved the heart in a small urn or jar to keep it around as long as possible—to give the soul its means of making decisions. Both the heart, and its jar were called the “Ab.”

Know that at this time, you are supported by spirit in any relationships or new endeavors. Let your brain do its own things—and instead, make your decisions from the heart.

Know that spirit is saying, “Never, Never Gonna Give You Up–’cause quitting just ain’t my schtick” (Barry White – Chorus hist at about 2:35-2:40)) so why would you give up on them?

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) ~ King of Pentacles

Gemini: King of Pentacles

Gemini: King of Pentacles

Gemini, you will arrive at a new apex of your creativity this month. By harnessing your power, you can move forward in your artistic life (if you have a creative bent), in your career, and/or in your finances. The King of Pentacles rules creativity, career, and money in a positive way. If you have an entrepreneurial bent, now is a good time to start harvesting those ideas as well.

Look out for allies that can help you in your pursuits. If you’re not sure of how to move forward—start journaling daily, or download a voice recorder app to start capturing your ideas. It’s time to start thinking outside of the box. Act as if you are lucky, and the Law of Attraction will help bring things together for you.

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 21) ~ Ace of Pentacles

Cancer: Ace of Pentacles

Cancer: Ace of Pentacles

You will be supported in new endeavors this month, Cancer. But, things need to be shaken up a bit. How can you tweak what you are doing to be more successful, especially on the job or finance front? This month is all about sowing the seeds of manifestation, and believing that good things can come to pass. You can have money in a happy way. You can have health in a happy way. You can manifest the physical things you need, like a comfortable home, in a happy way.

In September, make a top 10 wish list of things you’d like to have happen in your life. To the end of each wish, add – “in a happy way” or “quickly and easily.” For example, “I’d like to find a new job, quickly and easily.” Or, “I’d like to start dating, in a happy way.” Whatever it is you want—now is the time to start building it. Start dreaming.

Leo (July 22 – August 21) ~ (8) Strength

Leo: 8 Strength

Leo: 8 Strength

Ah, it’s ironic, Leo, that you got the Strength card this month! In the Enchanted tarot, we see a maiden taming the king of the forest. They both are blessed with special powers to keep the world in balance—the maiden is crowned with the symbol of infinity and the lion with a traditional crown of power—of ruling over all that he surveys.

You will find your Strength through balance this month, Leo. You don’t have to be “tamed,” like the lion is in the picture. Instead, use infinity—think about the long game. Think about sustainability—what can you keep up? Where would you like to invest? Know that you are an asset to those around you. You are well loved; even if it is not always shown the way you’d like it to be.

With the combination of strength and infinity comes excellence, through the skill of knowing when to exert your strength, and when to save it for yourself. Step into your power, Leo.

Blue Moon Life Plan Horoscope – July 2015

Blue Moon Tarot Horoscope – July 1st-August 6, 2015

July 1-August 6 Blue Moon Horoscope.  The top row of card represents each week/phase of the Moon and the bottom row provides additional information on each week.  Enjoy!

July 1-August 6 Blue Moon Horoscope. The top row of card represents each week/phase of the Moon and the bottom row provides additional information on each week. Enjoy!

We’re all coming into a wave of change that will take us through the next two and a half years.  It’s a Blue Moon – or two Full Moons in one month.  July’s first Full Moon on the 1st of the month (9:22pm CDT), is usually called the Antler Moon or the Thunder Moon. This fits with the never ending stream rain we’ve been having in Central Texas recently!  July’s second Full Moon on the 31st (5:45am CDT) is the Blue Moon.  

Spirit has asked me to share a Blue Moon Horoscope Reading with you so that we can all take July 2015 to prepare for the new 2 1/2 year cycle beginning with the Blue Moon on the 31st.  This Blue Moon cycle will end in January 2018.  Where do you want to be in your life by then?  Let the Blue Moon, Spirit, and the Universe provide their support and love.

Next month we’ll get back to the regular sun sign horoscopes, but for now — the Blue Moon!

In this reading, there are 10 cards.  The first 5 cards (top row) are the general energy of each week. The second five cards (bottom row) provide guidance on that energy.  The shifts in the energy for each week have to do with either letting go (waning energy) or building up (waxing energy).

Full Moon #1 – July 1-7

IV The Emperor & 5 of Pentacles

IV The Emperor & 5 of Pentacles

IV The Emperor & 5 of Pentacles

In this First Full Moon, it’s time to take a moment to appreciate where you are.  Know that you no longer need the old supports. You no longer need the old patterns, the old energy, the old mentors, the old way of doing things.  You have come to an end of a cycle.  Mastery earned by you in developing your sense of ethics, what’s right in your world, and your relationships with others in your home and/or work spheres, is the basis for the next Blue Moon cycle.

Thank and release your mentor. This mentor could have been an older individual in your life, but mentorship can also occur through relationships with peers, Loved Ones on the Other Side, or even learning through watching your peers bumbling along and making mistakes, thus teaching you what NOT to do!  If you try to hold on to your mentor (either literally or figuratively), you may struggle because you’ll be stuck doing things the old way.  The person can still be in your life, but it is time to take ownership for your accomplishments and path forward.  In making this shift, you will be able to begin a new period of creative and financial growth.

3rd Quarter – Waning Moon – July 8-14

5 of Cups & King of Wands

The waning moon tells us what we need to let go of in order to grow. As you’ve come into your own power through the Emperor in the First Full Moon, it is time to reassess your relationships with those around you. Bring people who share your passions and dreams even closer.  Start seeing less of those people who interfere with your best interests.  Even if these negative folks are not malicious, you will be held back if you keep trying to change them.  Bless them, mourn them if you wish, and let them go.  Remember that you are at the brink of becoming positively powerful in so many parts of your life!  It is time for spiritual and emotional ascension.

This is also a time to start thinking creatively. It is time to kindle new passions and dreams.  Do you want a better job?  A new love interest?  To find your soul mate? To burn away a health issue or let go of excess weight? Or to feel surrounded by those who love you in a comfortable home?  Now’s the time to put the picture together of what you want.  Start thinking big, trying on the “movies” of where your life could go in the next 2 1/2 years.

New Moon – Dark of the Moon – July 15-22

The New Moon is the birth of potential.  Last week you remained in thought to dream up your future lover, smoking hot body, successful career, and/or joyful family reunion.  Now is the time for action.  Now is the time to start building new relationships and strengthening old ones.  Now is the time to up the romance with your partner if you’re coupled.  If you are single and want a partner, now is the time to tell everyone you know that you are finally ready to be set up on that blind date.  Positive messages will appear from unexpected places, so it’s time to reach out NOW.

The same applies if you’re looking for anything that’s close to your heart—starting a business, getting medical advice for a loved one, etc.  NOW is the time to reach out to who ever you can think of to get new information.  If you don’t do so now, it could take much more time to accomplish the same ends.  If you don’t go out on that blind date when it comes—you’ll be stuck in the same place you’re currently at, just like the hanged man.  He’s content, but he’s not going anywhere.  So, it’s up to you to decide.

1st Quarter – Waxing Moon – July 23-30

2 of Pentacles & 5 of Swords

2 of Pentacles & 5 of Swords

2 of Pentacles & 5 of Swords

The 1st quarter is a waxing moon, a time of growth.  Make sure that as you forge ahead, you take good care of yourself.  Have due diligence if you’re trying to make any changes related to spending money or changing jobs.  But, don’t overdo it. Don’t over think it. You will be provided with the information you need if you ask for it. Remember that if you can keep your spiritual, financial, and emotional life in balance, that the Universe will provide for you.  Start with small beginnings—there’s great potential to get what you want if you keep faith.

Know that your dream isn’t always the same one that your friends or family have.  We all have our own dreams.  But, if you sharing your dream for the next 2 1/2 years and someone pooh-poohs it, stop telling them about it! Keep your energy up by sharing your dreams with like-minded people.

Blue Moon – Full Moon #2 – July 31-August 6

Queen of Swords & 4 of Pentacles

Queen of Swords & 4 of Pentacles

Queen of Swords & 4 of Pentacles

The Blue Moon card is – The Queen of Swords!  By now, your dreams and goals for the next 2 1/2 years should be well in hand.  You’ll have a sense of “done”-ness to your dreams.  They will start to feel possible at this point if they did not before.  The Queen combines the best of our feminine selves—emotion and relationships, with our masculine selves as expressed through the swords—reason, justice, and intelligence.  We cannot move forward unless our heads and hearts are brought together.  The 4 of pentacles is here to let us know that we’ll be building on a successful, stable foundation as we move forward.  This is a longer cycle, so the 4 gives us financial and creative support for the long haul.  Remember to share your upcoming successes with others as this will expand your joy, love, wealth, and passions exponentially.
