Tarot Horoscope! – October 2015

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

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.

Note that some of the keywords included below are from Crowley’s Thoth Tarot.  Many of these are falsely negative (or positive), so make sure to read your horoscope, even if it the keyword is strange.  We’re all continually growing and moving to new levels.

1 tarot card with a black stone and a clear quartz point.

Card for Everyone: 2 of Swords, along with a piece of nuumite (left) and phantom quartz (right).

April Message for Everyone:   2 of Swords (Keyword: Peace)

Traditionally, this card represents a bit of a self-imposed stalemate.  However, in Crowley’s deck the energy has shifted.  We’re all at an intersection of life where everything is on “pause” and is hanging in the balance.  Take April to enjoy the peace that has come, now that the last of the eclipses will occur in on April 4th. (It’s a total lunar eclipse. This is our first real break since October 2014.)  Use this time to enjoy family and friends as life will be gearing up quickly in May.  Make sure to get out and appreciate the sunshine!

 

April Sun Signs

Aries: 9 of Disks ~ Taurus: XIV: Art ~ Gemini: Prince of Swords

Aries: 9 of Disks ~ Taurus: XIV: Art ~ Gemini: Prince of Swords

Aries (March 21 – April 20) ~ 9 of Disks (Gain)

Aries, you’re moving into a time of completion.  Your life feels a bit more settled, as everything is in perfect balance.  The heavens above, the earth below, and nature all around will provide her gifts. At this time, be on the lookout for new beginnings.  They will look almost irresistible and even may start to have a glimmer to them so that you’re put on notice, especially at the end of the month.  Now is a nice time to rest and take in delight.  You’ve been working hard.  It’s time to start dreaming up your next chapter by the last third of the month.  What will you bring to fruition using the Law of Attraction?  Love?  Money?  A new home?  It’s time to get started.

 

Taurus (April 21 – May 20) ~ XIV Art (Temperance)

Temperance embodies balance.  In major arcana XIV – Art, Taurus, you are at the apex of balance and are expert at combining the light and dark within yourself.  It’s time to integrate your everyday self and your shadow side to create something that’s more than the sum of those two halves. So, if you’ve been “too good” lately – it’s time to rebel a little. The opposite is also true—if you’ve been bit living in excess, Now is a time to find a meeting or support group, or even just a heart-to-heart with a dear friend.  As you stir the cauldron of fire and ice, you’ll gain the strength of the lion and the perseverance of the phoenix. You will create anew from the bitter ashes of truth, which is your Art.

 

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

Gemini, it’s time to let go of your burdens. Recently, you feel like you are doing everything for everyone, or that you’re the one who is helping others make progress.  Instead, you’re neglected. Cut yourself free from the cords that you’re holding with an iron fist.  You need to rebuild health and vitality.  It’s time for you to start the healthy habits (maybe those you planned on at the New Year?).  Now is also the time to make (and keep) any of those doctor’s appointments you’ve been putting off, so that you can continue on the track of preventive maintenance. But be kind to yourself, Gemini. Know that you’ve done what you can, but you can rework things for the better.

 

Cancer: XIII: Death ~ Leo: Ace of Wands ~ Virgo: XVII: The Star

Cancer: XIII: Death ~ Leo: Ace of Wands ~ Virgo: XVII: The Star

Cancer (June 21 – July 21) XIII Death (Transformation)

Cancer, it’s a time of change and transformation for you this month.  You have the power to end or break off what’s dragging you down—like old projects that aren’t important to you anymore.  Without pruning away the old, you have no room for the new ascension and bliss made true through daily surprises. Be sure to cut the cords to negativity and negative people in your life.  Both you and they will be better off without feeding that negativity.   Give yourself a day off to look inward. What’s the next act?  It may still be a little rough around the edges–but the payoff will be immense. Go for it!

 

Leo (July 22 – August 21) Ace of Wands

Leo, you are fire! While others are resting and taking stock of life issues, you need to dive in head first. It’s time to grab what you want.  Your passion is divinely intended and fueled by Spirit. For example, if there’s a person you want to date, then it’s time to ask them out! Or maybe you want to train for a better job, or plan a dream vacation.  Harness your passions now, as it’s intended for you to get ahead  while most of the other signs are resting and rejuvenating.  This eclipse on April 4th calmed others down—but it’s just gotten you started!

 

Virgo (August 22 – September 21)  XVII The Star

Inspiration is your key word for the month.  Let yourself be inspired, by singing when you get up in the morning, taking walks in the moonlight, and appreciating what’s around you, whether that be the wonders of wildflowers—or a hot date sitting across from you at your favorite bar.   It’s time for you to make the Star your own—to put your personal fingerprint on everything around you.  How can you make your relationships and your environment more “you”?  Know that you’ll be supported on this journey by Ascended Masters – people from the past who are here to help us in our daily lives.  For you, this could be the Buddha, St Germaine, or even a long lost Aunt.  Now is the time to ask them for help, more often, and for more than you think you need or deserve.  You are loved, Virgo.  These Ascended Masters will lead you and help you find inspiration.

 

Libra: 8 of Wands ~ Scorpio: 7 of Disks ~ Sagittarius: 4 of Wands

Libra: 8 of Wands ~ Scorpio: 7 of Disks ~ Sagittarius: 4 of Wands

Libra (September 22 – October 21) 8 of Wands (Swiftness)

Libra, things are moving so quickly that it might even feel like you’re buzzing on 20 cups of coffee. You’re not quite sure which direction to go, because all directions seem equally appealing.  Before you take off onto big new things, sit and meditate on what will bring you the most happiness or joy, if you only had one big dream come true for the rest of the year.  (Not that you can’t have more dreams—it’s just time to work on this one first. Prioritize, Libra.) The rainbow in tarot often signifies the romantic love of a happy ending.  It’s also a promise that there will always be a new dawn after a storm.  Surround yourself with family—whether they are blood relative or your family of choice, they will help you move forward, especially if you want a new job or home.

 

Scorpio (October 22 – November 22) 7 of Disks (Failure)

So, Crowley’s vision is failure, while Rider-Waite-Smith sees this card as the farmer. Embrace failure as your fear about the situation, and let it go.  Remember yourself as the farmer who has sowed the seed and has been rewarded with a beautiful, flourishing crop due to their care and diligence.  This is not a time to be careless, Scorpio, as you’re not quite done.  The energy of the 7 as expressed by the Thoth is yearning for the regenerative power of infinity which is found in the 8, just one card away.  You’ve done a fantastic work but you’re probably going to have to push for another 6 to 8 weeks for things to begin to settle in with the best results. Know that Spirit has acknowledged the hard work you’ve put in, that’s coming to fruition.

 

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) 4 of Wands  (Completion)

This is a time of completion and rest for you, Sagittarius.  Out in the Spring sunshine, it’s time for you to come to a new level of trust and self-care.  Use April to balance your masculine and feminine energies.  Let go of the need to control that which is around you, and begin to use Byron Katie’s questions instead, “Is it true?  Is it really true?”  This message is a reminder of your recent cycle of completion (ending in early April). But, you can also feel the energies around you, simmering under the surface, ready to burst. Your relationship or dating life is ready for renewal, if you can back off and just enjoy the process and let go of the outcome. Take another chance on love, especially if you’ve been shunting it aside due to seemingly more important projects.  Love can change your whole life.

 

Capricorn: 6 of Cups ~ Aquarius: 10 of Swords ~ Pisces: III: The Empress

Capricorn: 6 of Cups ~ Aquarius: 10 of Swords ~ Pisces: III: The Empress

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 6 of Cups (Pleasure)

Capricorn, your pleasures are interesting in so many ways. Find those connections in the community around you. Define joys in the everyday.  Note that you are fighting some big payoffs, becuase they seem hidden to you.  There are a succession of gifts waiting. They are golden lotus flowers that bathe you in Divine light.  Appreciate the moment, stringing cherished memories like pearls on a string, each secured with its own knot. Fit in as much joy and fun as possible. You may be tired, but if somebody asks you to go out, get out of the house and bathe in that golden light.

 

Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) 10 of Swords (Ruin)

The number 10 can often be seen as “too much.”  So when Crowley uses the keyword “ruin,” it’s a reminder to not overthink the irrelevant. Avoid histrionics and the overdramatic.  Ground yourself, and take a little vacation from living in your head, Aquarius.  Instead of stressing out about the taxes, put one foot in front of the other and find another path. This may be a bit of a challenge, because this is a month of passion for you.  As your emotions might feel little out of control or off, do what you can to take care of yourself.  You’re going to be onto better things next month. Know that you’ve been capable and confident in the past, and that you will be again.

 

Pisces (Separate 20th – March 20) III The Empress

The Empress is the great Mother.  This means that you need to take on the transmission of knowledge. Who are you a parent or mentor to right now?  Who is a mentor to you?  If these relationships are not clear, it’s time to seek them out. You’re ready for another alignment, where you will combine vigor with discernment. At this spring holiday, take a moment to listen and value the stories of the elders in your family.  These stories will straighten out some issue for you. This month, by mentoring and being mentored, you are of service in so many ways.  Connect the generations through your presence and loving guidance.

 

Wishing you an April of Wonder, and a Beautiful Spring!  ~ Christine
