In the thick of Gemini Season we can sense the push and pull of dualities in our personal life and communities. Add to that eclipse season and the need for giant shifts towards balance and alignment are in our thoughts and actions. This week I implored the tarot cards to provide some guidance. Find your sun sign to read your message from the cards.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Five of Pentacles – Things have not turned out as you may have wanted them to. Even without expectations you might feel a sense of loss for something you didn’t know you were missing. The Five of Pentacles is a message of hope through accountability. Today is a good day to realize that you are the gardener of your own garden. Through loving action, attention, and focus, you can produce a meaningful change.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Eight of Pentacles – Work, chores, honey-do, labor of love… perspective is everything when it comes to the tasks required. You answer a calling this week, one that is likely to get your hands and head involved, but what is hard work can also be heart work. Perhaps Khalil Gibran said it best: “Work is love made visible.” We are most productive energy and the results are plentiful when your heart is in it.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
XX Judgement – Rebirth can be such a romantic notion, but it really doesn’t play out like that. When we are awakened to the world, it is not an instantaneous moment of awareness but rather it is years of trial and error, failure, loss, surrender, learning, listening and enlightening. You are entering a new time in life, even if it arises effortlessly, you know deep down that it was actually hard fought and well deserved.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
XXI The World – Your work here is done, my honey. We know you Virgos have an eye for perfection which means there’s probably another detail or two that could always be added. Part of the magic is knowing when it is complete and when to put it down and walk away, whether you can admire it from afar or feel unsatisfied with how it ended, its ended. Time to welcome in a new energy, new experiences and a new way of being.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
XIX The Sun – Libras are busy right now. When the scales are tipped, Libras get to work. Perhaps you are highly triggered, perhaps you are inspired by this valuable, necessary, meaningful effort here. But don’t forget the part where you make room for fun, laughter, light and ease. This is an essential aspect of life balance, and you already know this, but here is your reminder and permission if you needed it.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Seven of Pentacles – Prepare, plant, water, weed, wait… In all aspects of growth and prosperity there are cycles of high energy and action and then the hard part of simply letting things grow on their own. Where are you in your efforts? Knowing the answer to that could mean the difference between a fruitful outcome and failure. This week check in with yourself about how much energy you need to put into things, not too much, not too little, just right.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Nine of Pentacles – The Nine of Pentacles is often referred to as the single ladies card. It has very little to do with relationship status and everything to do with having built something yourself. As the most social member of the zodiac, this idea may be foreign to you, but give it time… You are permitted to celebrate a sense of ownership with your place in this world, the connections you have made, the things you have acquired, your voice and your message and who you have become.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19
Four of Swords – Half of the battle of each day we live through is getting enough sleep the night before. A spark of action and intention may have emerged for you, you may feel highly motivated and eager to get after it. Somewhere echoes the sound of a loved one reminding you of the importance of rest. The time for action may very well be now, but weave restoration into the mix.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Four of Wands – You should be very pleased with yourself. You’ve made something beautiful. You’ve created something amazing. You’ve really pulled it off. It probably took one or more of the following: emotional, mental, physical, spiritual efforts. But darn it, you did it. The best part is you aren’t even done yet. The Four of Wands suggests you celebrate your progress thus far. Whether this is rewarding yourself or pulling together a party of one, or more, six feet apart, follow this call for celebration and then get back to work.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
10 of Swords – An overkill of emotions leaves you exhausted and uninspired. Yet you just keep chipping away at it. Whether it’s an itch you feel you have to scratch, or a hurt you feel you deserve, nothing is to be gained by re-engaging in such a negative cycle. It’s time to tap out. Break away and begin again, with positive purpose. Let this be the shift that lifts you up from what has held you down.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
XVIII The Moon – Enter a time of complete release, embrace what wildness comes your way. Trust the shadowy corners of your mind and know that madness can be a medicine for the mundane. The Moon is all about connecting to your hidden, emotional, wonderful self. You know, the one you’ve dressed up with ego and given an online social media presence. Use this powerful time to reconnect with your intuition, raw emotion and what beautiful things are buried beneath.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Ace of Wands – A new energy entices you like never before. A new interest emerges, and you feel you can take on the world. Follow it confidently and boldly, which is really the only way you know how to. This new opportunity that is emerging is sure to energize you and produce a meaningful shift. Time to shake things up a bit.
