It’s lonely at the top, and no one knows this better than Aries. Leadership comes naturally to you, and chances are you’re never too far from the spotlight. Even if you’re a natural wallflower, you also know how to command attention, and direct it. If others follow you like a swarm of bees, you’ll harness that momentum for the greater good. Not content to be nectar, inspiring others to join in the buzz of creation, you’ll turn queen bee and organize a whole assembly line, lining the hive with those honeypots. Efficiency excites you. If there’s a shortcut to be had, you found it first.
Once the thrill of commandeering a colony of devotees wears off, you may find yourself wondering why, despite the moral support, you still feel like you’re the only one in your corner. If love and intimacy have been feeling like just another battlefield, perhaps it’s time to go back to beginner’s mind. The good-sportsmanship approach, which keeps you coasting on life’s ups while not taking the downs too seriously, may not be serving you in the romance department. Playfulness has its place in relationships, but success here may have less to do with a roll of the dice than how you invest your gains.
Look around you, Aries: you’re more successful than you think you are and more beloved than you know. In the quest to do more, innovate, succeed, maybe you’ve forgotten to celebrate what you already have. Take this month before your birthday to rest, review and recharge. Your achievements are lasting. The community that supports you is real. You got the honey, and it’s gold.

So, let’s talk about that world you’re holding, Taurus. You’re feeling pretty confident and keen that you’re ready to take over and pursue your ambitions. If you’re cueing up “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey while reading this tarotscope, I won’t blame you (bonus points if you’re singing the song in a Glee fashion manner). Ideally, that would be the message from the Two of Wands: be ready for a life change because it will get uncomfortable.
I get the sense that from the beginning of this up until now, you’ve seen your current environment and are ready to make that leap. Maybe you’re not happy with your living situation and are looking for greener pastures. Perhaps your partner wasn’t the most faithful of all folks. I feel you. While change isn’t your favorite word in your vocabulary, it would be a good reminder to embrace it while you start making decisions and provide a safety plan, in case something falls through the cracks.
While we’re at it, let’s zoom in further on your overall situation. The world that you’re holding is a bright and shiny coin. I feel that this may be more than just plain old “I’m gonna quit my job because I feel like it” or “I’m so damn broke that I need to get my finances in order.” I get the sense that your mind right now is focused on acquiring new resources to build a happier self. You feel that this is not tangible at the moment. All of this you may think is like a dream. The Ace of Pentacles message in a nutshell: what you’re seeing is available. It’s time to bring it down to your level of acquirement.
Running (or walking in this case) out the door from the garden, we’re focusing back to where you’re currently standing. Hey, there’s that coin again! Only this time…you’re not sure what to do with it (and you look like you’re preparing for battle). I get the sense that you’re skeptical on the whole journey. Maybe you’re having doubts if this coin is real or something that you got from the cereal box.
Dear Taurus – it’s as real as it can get. If Bruno Mars can win a couple of Grammys for his album 24K Magic, best believe that you’re on the road to winning. The Knight of Pentacles message in a nutshell: secure your future but make the necessary investments so that you’ll come out like a champ at the end of the road.
To put things into perspective – If you’re hearing faint sounds of applause and coins clinking on the ground, your subconscious is telling you that you’re ready to harness unexpected opportunities that were once held off as a dream. With Pisces season, be mindful of procrastination as this can delay your endeavors. Don’t fight the feeling, just trust in yourself and go with the flow.
Now go out there and drip in finesse, Taurus (sorry, couldn’t help myself with that last line).

Next World Tarot, published December 2017, http://cristyroad.bigcartel.com/
Dearest Gemini, this Pisces season you are being called to recognize the gifts of this last astrological cycle and welcome new energy. Pisces is the last zodiac month of the Western astrological year. Aries season kicks off a new cycle, and so this month is all about incorporating the wisdom from the previous season and getting ready for the next.
The World is about the beautiful culmination, and also about incorporating and rising above your shadow. The world is seeing patterns of self-sabotage and manipulation and rising above them. The World gets you to the heart of the matter to bring you back into alignment with your highest purpose and highest self. You love analyzing complex issues and following your heart into new areas of research. The World opens doorways – the World is here this month to introduce you to your next love.
The Ace of Cups and the 6 of Pentacles serve as a preview for the next astrological year. This is a welcome shift for you, as you bring your airy self back down to earth to dig into your emotions and connection with loved ones. The Ace of Cups, in particular, shows a beautiful beginning, a recommitment to self-love and a talisman for your path of rediscovering the self. This season you are called to find your sanctuary, find yourself a space where you feel safe to explore the depths of your many emotions. You can’t logic your way out of this one – and you shouldn’t try. When your impulses toward logic begin to take over, engage in art and literature that stimulate both your mind and your emotions
Finally, the 6 of Pentacles is reminding you to pay your gifts forward. You have a lot to share right now, and it will have so much more meaning to you if you redistribute your resources to your loved ones. You have a deep capacity for connection, so pay that forward and connect with your loved ones. This is about creative partnership and bartering. The gains that you have made in working with the energy of The World, as well as the emotional celebration of the Ace of Cups, means that you will be seeking ways to share with your loved ones. Take time for that inspiring coffee date! Take time to connect with your people, and share what you’ve learned

Fountain Tarot, self-published, www.fountaintarot.com, 2014
What a capable and powerful month you have ahead of you, dear Cancer! You can be proud of the immense amount of work and vision you’ve been cultivating in your life. Now is the time to step into a new phase of power and ease and to allow your gifts to flow naturally.
We see you embodying the almost nonchalant confidence of the King of Coins during this Pisces season. You’ve truly arrived on the scene as a force to be reckoned with, and one wise enough to delegate the nitty-gritty tasks to others so you can focus on your singular mission. Take this laser-like focus and run with it. You’ve built a structure that’s both solid and dynamic; now that you’ve got the gears turning let them do their work so you can sit back and gain an even bigger perspective of how far you’ve come and, most excitingly, where you’d like to go next.
You might feel the itch to poke some holes in your accomplishments, perhaps to temper what you see as an excess of plenty. Your material success, however, is simply an outward manifestation of a deeper, more spiritual pursuit. That sense of fairness and larger purpose is animating your gains with meaning, showing those around you that you can be both a good and a successful person. Lean into this role. It’s you, after all, just bigger, clearer, and living by your values. It’s just the kind of responsible power and mindful living we need to see more of in this wild world of ours.
Curiously, inhabiting the new role of the King of Coins is, in addition to giving you material security and a sense of satisfaction in your work, propelling you further down a path of spiritual development. This is when you are being called to take a trust fall of sorts into the path you’ve been building for yourself. All the exploration and practice you’ve brought into your life when following the mystical call of The Hierophant is working wonders. The next phase is the leap of faith, acting on the trust you’ve built towards yourself and a higher power, and allowing this lovely support system to catch you. Doing so will end this season with an exhilarating feeling of newness. Ease and depth are becoming a natural part of your life. Your outward success is mirroring inward spiritual growth – the path is clear and now is the time to take it.

The Linestrider Tarot by Siolo Thompson 2016
If it feels like things are coming to an end, it’s because in a sense they are. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and it’s bringing about a time of tying up loose ends and cutting the pieces we don’t need. The Six of Swords is going to give you a bit of push to keep moving, with that last bit of momentum you have, put it towards clearing on and moving forward. Some spring cleaning, if you will.
And yes, it’s a very water heavy time, dear Leo, which is not necessarily your favorite, but fear not. The Emperor is boosting the will and fire of the Ace of Wands with its earthy grounding. It will keep you going, particularly as it pertains to your domain, to your realm, the places you want to see thrive.
We have just had a partial solar eclipse and new moon in Aquarius, for the next few weeks, figure out where that domain is, where you want to thrive. For those who have it available, look at where the new moon hit your natal chart. See what you can glean from there.
And it doesn’t have to be anything spectacular. It doesn’t have to be particularly life-changing. Maybe you just want to clutter free your home, your space. Maybe you want to prepare yourself for a move or a new project. Shake off some mental cobwebs. This is a lovely time to do so. Use that energy, it’s still going and still going to be a process.
Lastly, the Queen of Cups is here to remind you that emotive energy is your friend. I know it doesn’t feel quite as fierce and quick and passionate as your typical fire, but there is a deep cleansing available to you here if you will let it.

“Before you feed somebody else
You gotta stay open, and don’t be foolish ’
Cause everybody don’t mean you well
You gotta love yourself
Before you love somebody else”
– Lyrics from Love Yourself by Mary J. Blige
Libra, your affirmation for this month is “I notice the relationship dynamics that challenge my inner harmony, and in choosing to let them fall away, I reclaim my sovereignty and gain the space to conjure harmonious and inspired partnerships.”
Dear Libra, Pisces season comes with the invitation for you to get clear about relationships that have become stagnant, toxic or disruptive to equilibrium. You are being invited to pause, take notice of the relationship dynamics that interfere with your flow and sense of personal power, and choose what is most loving, harmonious and empowering for you.
Your tarot allies this month are Suspension (The Hanged Man), Two of Gourds (Cups), and The Conjurer (The Magician).
At the center is the heart of the matter; the Two of Gourds represents what is happening in the present moment and what you most deeply desire. In the card image, you see a strong being holding a gourd atop their head as it is filled from another set of hands holding a gourd above them. This powerful image shows how being in relationship with others affects us. Emotional connection is a feedback system – we give out, and we take in. Sometimes emotions flow between people, and there’s a rhythm of reciprocity and responsibility. Other times it feels one-sided; we either give too much, leaving ourselves and/or others depleted, or we take in so much that we feel like we are drowning in someone else’s story. Sometimes we are the dominant energy manipulating others and other times we are the ones that feel manipulated and powerless. We must decide how to restore harmony when these imbalances happen. What needs to happen for your relationship(s) to be mutually supportive, beneficial and balanced?
In the position of the past influences, we see the image of Suspension (XII). If it is harmony in relationship that you most desire, here we see the stark truth that some relationships have been feeling stuck, stagnant and in limbo for you. Maybe you’ve been quiet about it, simply noticing how you’ve been feeling in some of your interactions instead of communicating your feelings. Or maybe you are feeling like you don’t want to be left hanging anymore and are ready to let go of people or relationships habits that have caused these feelings of disharmony. Either way, how you really feel is being brought into the light. You can’t ignore the emotional tension any longer.
In the position of future possibilities, we see The Conjurer (I). Armed with clarity, confidence and creative prowess, your future self knows that you have every resource available to you to manifest the relationship dynamics you desire. The caveat is that you have to be true to yourself. And in being true to yourself, understand that every choice you make has a ripple effect on everything around you. This is the foundation of conscious relationship; knowing that everything you say, do, and feel has an impact – it’s a creative force that shapes every experience. You are the creative force that shapes every relationship you have, from the one with yourself to the ones you have with others. Not at the mercy of others, you have the power.
Take that power and create, baby!

You’re a little out of your element this month, feeling uninspired, unmotivated, unimpressed, or unchallenged… BUT don’t let this discourage you in the least! Because the good news is that there is sure purpose behind this discomfort. And you’re only being made to feel uncomfortable in this way to spark an interest in you to implement some changes in your life. You’re used to being on the go and always charging onward and upward, but you’re being asked to switch up your routine a bit and adjust to doing things differently.
When stagnation begins to creep up in any area of your life: Start simplifying things. Take time to remove all the excess clutter, both physical and mental, of old pains or needless reminders of past hurts. Invoke that natural fiery energy of yours and channel it into cleaning up and clearing out. New depths will most definitely be explored during this process, so do not be afraid of revisiting your past for the purpose of purging. You won’t be staying in that space, only passing through. Consistently remind yourself that these things cannot hurt you now or any more, and you’ll find yourself much freer once you release them.
The EARTH element will be crucial for you this month, so try to increasingly incorporate it into your daily routines with grounding activities- GARDENING or spending time with plant life, especially. There are lessons to be learned, or an easier representation/demonstration of what you should be emulating, found in the plant kingdom. Don’t hesitate to look to them for assistance and as a guide with your experiences. In addition to that, consulting dreamwork and candle magick are highly supported during this time. An increase in intuition, and being “initiated” or going through a “rite of passage” are being highlighted as descriptions of the potential you’re able to achieve during this time as well.

Oh Capricorn! You are so ready to move on to bigger and better things – you quite literally have your Chariot laced up, ready to go. You are poised for action!! …but are you really ready? Part of your gung-ho attitude is the result of having achieved a new level of calm, of stillness, where you feel released from much of what used to trouble your busy mind. Perfect conditions to start something new!
Well, soon – but first, you are challenged to relax into this newfound peace, to just be with it, to enjoy it and learn from it so the vision you’re so steamed up about can manifest smoothly and seamlessly with greater strength than it would if you push it before its time.
Indeed, a large part of the way you’re feeling is the result of much deep, intense shadow work – you wanted to understand yourself from the inside out, and hoo-ee, do you ever have a clear picture now! You wanted to understand how you held yourself back in order to find a better way to keep scaling your personal mountain, and the answers you received were so heavy that really, you are still in the “processing” phase.
What you are learning now transcends regular social bounds – you are connecting with yourself and your intuition in a rather uncharacteristic way, really seeking to know your own “animal nature,” in such a way that you can throw the roof off your personal darknesses, allow you to release the patterns that continue to challenge your progress, and welcome in unprecendented amounts of joy and light.
Capricorn, your challenge this month is to resist pushing forward, to relax into the darkness that remains, to feel through what’s left needing to be released in favour of even greater stability, even deeper soul-calm, which will allow you to build what you’ve been developing even bigger and better than you originally imagined. This is a time for listening to your personal energy levels in such a way that you can establish stronger boundaries, ones that singularly welcome in energy that is conducive to not only your personal health, but also the health of your dream!
You became aware of needing to pull back a bit to avoid burnout, and are now discovering just how very much you needed a break to get back to your best – good on you, because giving yourself this time to heal and regenerate will see you rise again as a truly spectacular force of nature.

The Mesquite Tarot 2017
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
— Margaret Atwood
Theme | How to work it
Spark | Investment
Even if the current season feels endless, the cardinal flair is lit. The seeds of Spring and Autumn are here in their respective corners of the world, and they are festive. Consider cultures that just celebrated the Lunar New Year.
The spark of the Ace of Wands is a red envelope filled with money for you.
It’s the warmth of family;
the rub of a thousand shoulders while watching red dragons dance;
those drums and the sound of many people;
a world waking up;
of energy beginning to crest.
This energy hits businesses, art, relationships, families, schools, and people. There’s an automatic momentum in the bigger structures, and we’re used to leaning into them. It’s the time for it; next month, Aries season kicks off the next season in earnest, and in typical Aquarius fashion, we are already there.
We are more than bottles floating on the sea of the collective energy. We have access to a personal momentum, and it can be amplified by the change of seasons. The toll for this personal store is an investment in the seeds of spring.
For us Aquarians, it’s tempting to think of those seeds as our projects, our goals, our art, and all the love-children of our highly active minds, the things we always think about. Turn that brilliant mind of yours toward the thread that binds you to people and develop interpersonal systems.
For some that development will look like showing up, online or in person, to see other people. For some, it will extend to deep listening and a capacity to say or do something that feeds others, “I have been through that too,” “can you tell me more about this?” And for others still, it’s cultivating spaces where folks can rest, exchange information, and serve one another, it looks like service to a congregation of beings.
We have options. Whatever we perceive as the limits of what we’re allowed will be there. If you need survival, invest in what brings you the coin. If you need to connect, learn, and be inspired, invest in nourishing spaces ever-mindful of what you can contribute even as someone with a lot farther to go. Don’t wait to be asked, offer what you can.
If you are a leader, tend your real love-children, actual people or the interpersonal systems that serve them, not an idea you have about yourself or what people need. You don’t need to guess, ask them. The internet means that even us introverts can connect as deeply as we dare. It also means an opportunity to build global interpersonal systems. Draw near the spring as it manifests in the people around you at whatever level you live. Get your hands dirty.

Secrets of the Mystic Grove (U.S. Games Systems Inc, 2017)
Greetings, fellow fish and happy birthday. I’m going to answer the question as follows. What three things do my Pisceans need to be aware of for this Tarotscopes cycle? I’m using the Secrets of the Mystic Grove (U.S. Games Systems Inc, 2017) to explore the mysteries that await us.
First, the theme for the month is Confidence. Don’t just stand up, stand out. That can be a difficult message for Pisces with a ton of water and earth in their charts, but those with a nice dash of fire and air will nail it. When this is the theme, we can expect to be called into situations where we will have to really dig down deep to show others we are strong enough. Don’t be surprised if you are also recognized for your grace under pressure. Poise is embodied by women like Michelle Obama who remain serene even in the face of relentless media pressure. So, let’s be like Michelle and go high when they go low.
The blessing card is the one that boosts or enhances the energy of the theme. Acknowledgement couldn’t be nicer companion to Confidence. This is about seeing, knowing and accepting. Sometimes we must accept others as they are. We can’t control others because they are not in our hula hoop. We must have the confidence that we will remain strong. This blessing allows us to see more clearly if we will only take the time to be quiet like this owl. Acknowledge your own strength of character, Pisces. What they do is not on you.
Now the last card is our challenge card. What will test us? What will be a stumbling block for our Confidence and Acknowledgement cards? Interestingly enough it is Awakening. This card seems to say that we need to not worry that we need to wake up. Sometimes we work so hard to be “in the know” and “on the cutting edge” that we get too wrapped up in the beginning. We forget to just let go and live. Make sure you are not over-analyzing things this month. It’s your birthday. You need to shine. Let the world see what an empowered Pisces can do. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.
