aries-winter-2016

Aries | 6 of Cups

This season will be all about reconnecting with your inner child and learning from your childhood. Honor what once was. Your sense of nostalgia may be heightened this Winter. Do you see how different events and experiences in your life have all been connected thus nurturing you into the person you are today – for better or for worse. Is there any childhood healing that needs to take place? Look back at your younger years. See how you have grown and matured. What is different and what has stayed the same?

taurus-winter-2016

Taurus | 2 of Wands

The longer you wait to make a decision, the less choice you have Taurus. This Winter will be spent in contemplation and looking for new options to explore. Do both options bring you to the same end point or do their paths cross for a moment and then keep on going? Evaluate your motivations. Balance will be an important factor this season as well. How will your choices impact the sense of balance in all areas of your life?

gemini-winter-2016

Gemini | Mother of Cups

Spend your Winter reaching out to others, healing, and sharing the love! This season is all about being the best nurturer you can be – to yourself and others too. You may be feeling a bit lovey-dovey, extra feminine, and all squishy on the inside which may make you a bit uncomfortable Gemini, but it is totally okay! Share all of that extra love and joy you feel within you to others that could use some.

cancer-winter-2016

Cancer | The Emperor

Discipline, discipline, discipline is the name of the game for you this Winter, Cancer. Bring in the reigns – it’s time to tighten up ship! This is a period of taking care of business to build a strong foundation for yourself, which I feel will come in handy as we roll into 2017. Create a to-do list and crack down on some of those responsibilities. This will be an important period of development and independence for you.

leo-winter-2016

Leo | Daughter of Swords

This Winter will really be about expanding on new ideas, Leo! Get clear on your goals – don’t be afraid if you have to put some of them on the back burner for now. This season will be spent learning what works for you. Communicating in new ways and learning new things. Have you been thinking of taking up a new course of study or enrolling in a new class? Now may be the prime time for you to do so!

virgo-winter-2016

Virgo | Death

Transformation, change, and rebirth will be a HUGE theme for you this Winter, Virgo! Embrace it. Shed your old skin. Let go of old beliefs. Release that which no longer serves you. You may find yourself changing jobs, finding friends who resonate with you on a soul level (and leaving behind those who do not), or perhaps even leaving a toxic relationship. Know that this period, while not easy, will definitely be beneficial in the growth and development of who you are as a soul! This is a powerful time for you.

libra-winter-2016

Libra | 5 of Cups

Try not to wallow in grief, despair, or loss this season. Winter will ask you to bring out your inner strength to help you heal from your grief. This is the time to focus on what you have – not what you’re lacking. Do not hang your head in shame! Try to find ways to renew your confidence. You can bring a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. Only YOU can renew your sense of joy and passion for life! How do you tap into that energy?  *Tip – Take extra salt baths this month to help keep your energy clear and fresh as you go through this trying time.

scorpio-winter-2016

Scorpio | Son of Swords

Winter will bring to you increased communication. Be mindful to think before you speak – especially in the first few weeks of Winter while Mercury is going retrograde (December 19th 2016 – January 8th 2017). Pay attention to how you communicate with others. What do you say and what do you wish you would say? There will be lots of ideas for you to share with the world. Deepen your knowledge of an existing subject of interest. This season will be a time of enhanced focus for you analytically and intellectually.

sagittarius-winter-2016

Sagittarius | 8 of Pentacles

Work, work, work is the name of the game for you this Winter, driven Sagittarius. Build and stack your resources. Put in as much work and effort as possible. Now is the time to really hunker down and put your nose to the grindstone with any goals you have. This is an extremely productive period for you where you can get a lot accomplished. This also feels like a great time of building your sense of abundance and prosperity by working towards your aspirations.

capricorn-winter-2016

Capricorn | 5 of Pentacles

Work on clearing up poverty mindset this Winter, Capricorn. Know that you’re not alone and that you truly have all you need to survive. Work on taking better care of your physical body this season. Drink more water. Eat healthier foods. Make sure you spend enough time out in the sun – even if it’s a bit chilly outside. Gather with those who love and support you. Don’t isolate yourself this Winter. Rejoice in the sunshine with your friends and be grateful for the many blessings in your life, even if it is hard to see them right now.

aquarius-winter-2016

Aquarius | 4 of Cups

You may feel a little bored, apathetic,  or impatient this season, as it may seem you’ve hit a bit of a plateau. Be mindful to keep your ego or sense of entitlement in control this Winter.  What has left you so unsatisfied? What can you do to revamp your spark Aquarius? Don’t isolate yourself in the darkness of your room. Open the blinds and let the sunshine in!  Don’t bask in lower vibrational ways of thinking. Keep your eyes to the light as you face the darkness.

pisces-winter-2016

Pisces | 3 of Swords

What has broken your heart my dear sweet Pisces? What didn’t work out the way you planned? As an idealist, this may have shaken you to your core emotionally. Constantly thinking of this issue, it’s got you bound tightly in it’s grip, replaying the incident over and over. Are you communicating your displeasure? How can you express these feelings in a healthy way that is more geared toward healing? Focus on regaining your sense of safety and security this Winter. Don’t be afraid if it is time to cut some cords – in the end, it may bring more clarity to the situation.

Aries | 4 of Cups + Invisibility

Authenticity…

aries-fall-tarotscope-2016

Have you become bored Aries? Are you struggling to find your way to stand out in a crowd? The best way to do that is to be authentic. Just be you! Don’t worry about being seen by others this season. Find security in yourself. Are you doing something because you feel obligated but not because your heart and soul is in it? What do you truly want to do? When we do things out of a sense of obligation, we can lose steam easily. Focus on bringing more authentic expression to your life. Your life can’t possibly be boring when you focus on expressing how you feel in all the true colors of who you are instead of repressing it.

 

Taurus | 7 of Pentacles + Jack O’Lantern

Protection…

taurus-fall-tarotscope-2016

You reap what you sow Taurus. It is time to evaluate past actions and whether they have bared fruit. Is there anything worth saving? Anything worth building on? Don’t compare your progress to others – your harvest is your own. Protect your assets and investments this month. Also know that you are loved and protected. Don’t allow worries, fears, doubts, or thoughts of not being good enough to creep in. Work with black tourmaline, obsidian, or black kyanite for an extra boost of protective energy when you feel that you need it this season.

 

Gemini | 6 of Swords Reversed + Joy

Rejoicing in the present…

gemini-fall-tarotscope-2016

This Fall, there seems to be a knowledge of the need to move on but you may outwardly be standing still Gemini. The transition is happening within. Instead of worrying about if you are in the right place or moving towards the future, focus on living in the present. By living in the present this season, it will help you to re-evaluate what is of importance in your life. Take time to breathe. By taking a step back and focusing on joy, you may find the answer that you have been looking for.

 

Cancer | The Empress + Skull of Darkness

Blind spots…

cancer-fall-tarotscope-2016

Send love to yourself this Autumn, Cancer! Send love to others as well. This season is a time of nurturance. It is also a season to see where you may be missing some loving thoughts and actions in your life. Are you receiving the love that you wish to receive? Are you giving the love you wish to give? And in all that giving and receiving of love, make sure to dole out some of that to yourself as well. Spoon it in with daily affirmations and replacing lower vibrational thoughts with higher ones. Where would you like more love, tenderness, and guidance in your life? How can you give that to yourself?

 

Leo | Justice + Skull of Flowers

Creating through the ashes…

leo-fall-tarotscope-2016

Justice comes to play for you this season Leo. Whether things work out the way you expect them to or not, be mindful that you can overcome. You can rebuild. New things are waiting to be planted now that lady justice has leveled her scales. The playing field is even now – even if you have to start from scratch. This energy is prime for rebirth and renewal. Like the scorched earth of the forest after a fire, new life will eventually sprout.

Virgo | 8 of Wands + Graveyard

Unnecessary fear…

virgo-fall-tarotscope-2016

Go! Onward, Virgo! Leap forward, take the step. All the ‘what-ifs’, and ‘I don’t knows’ are unnecessary fears. Energy and time will be moving quickly for you this Autumn. Don’t waste it feeding and feeling trepidation. Things may be whirling around you so much and happening so quickly that your head is spinning. It may cause you to want to stay in place, frozen in fear. Learn to work with this energy to your advantage. You can get a lot accomplished this season if you stay organized, focused, and believe in yourself.

Libra | Queen of Wands + Trick or Treat

Mischief and play…

libra-fall-tarotscope-2016

Don’t be afraid to let your hair down and have a little fun this Autumn, Libra! It’s okay to have a little fun, but remember your responsibilities. Otherwise, the treat might turn into a trick! It’s like going out on Halloween night, making sure your costume is top notch, strutting your stuff from house to house to ensure you get the most candy, and then going home and binging on it. Don’t do it! It may be fun now, but you’ll be sick in the morning. Try to keep your impulses in check. Everything in moderation. You don’t want overindulgence to steal your shine this season.

Scorpio | 2 of Cups Reversed + Skull of Light

Illumination…

scorpio-fall-tarotscope-2016

It looks like we may be shining a light on our relationship dynamics this season Scorpio. What is just not working in your relationships? Is there a communication issue? Is one of you more emotional or ‘in tune’ while the other is more logical and out of touch with their feelings? This Autumn will be a time of trying to balance relationships – especially those of great importance to us. There will also be realizations this season as to whether things may be reconcilable or not. This may be a sensitive time for you, so make sure to take good care of yourself. Focus on what is for the best and highest good of all involved.

Sagittarius | The Wheel Reversed + Eternal Love

Love is love is love and it transcends physical death…

sagittarius-fall-tarotscope-2016

As the wheel of the year turns again, the seasons change, the leaves fall away. This Fall will have a huge focus on love – love lost, love found, love that has changed shape. As the veil thins, you may be more aware of your loved ones in spirit surrounding and extending their love to you. Know that all things have a cycle. Things may be last for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Energy never dies, it is simply transformed. Give thanks and gratitude this Autumn for the loving presences in your life – your parents, children, spouse, friends, fur babies, loved ones in spirit, even the woman who always smiles and waves when you pass her on the street.

Capricorn | 6 of Pentacles + Barmbrack

Sweetness and synergy…

capricorn-fall-tarotscope-2016

Weigh your options carefully Capricorn. Allow for an even exchange of energy to take place. You are creating the alchemy of your life. Your life is a recipe! Would you like to add more love? How about more honesty? Do you feel called to be more generous? You are the chef! How can you work with others more this Fall? How can you share your resources and bring more positivity to those around you? Open up more space for giving and sharing in your life this Autumn. You could even volunteer in a food drive or donate your time to a homeless shelter! Doing these things make you feel good and they also help to balance energy.

Aquarius | The Tower + Zombie

Control…

aquarius-fall-tarotscope-2016

Release the need for control this season Aquarius. That may feel hard to do right now, especially if you feel that things are out of control or crumbling around you. Don’t allow situations that are out of your control to change who you are and make you feel like less of yourself! Sometimes when we feel that we can’t get bearings on a situation, it is easier to shut down or find an escape than to accept the situation for what it is. We can’t micromanage everything. Occasionally, the Universe likes to shake us up to wake us up! To teach us how to be more in the flow. This Autumn, be more accepting of change and less rigid.

Pisces | Death + Forgiveness

Reducing burden…

pisces-fall-tarotscope-2016

It seems like there will be some healing energy surrounding you this Autumn, Pisces. Transforming and changing the way you look at others, situations from the past, and your roles in them. Stripping away what is no longer you. In finding forgiveness for ourself and for others, we free ourselves from carrying the burdens of guilt, grief, anger, resentment, ego, fear, and so much more. These things only weigh us down on our journey. When we find forgiveness, true forgiveness, we can finally release and begin to heal more deeply than ever before.

Summer Tarotscopes 2016

June 20th to September 22nd 2016

The Summer waves, salty air, and thunderstorms are starting to roll in my lovelies! The Wheel of the Year spins again as the Sun fully embraces us. It is a time that is ripe with opportunity, potential, adventure, relaxation, fun, and some hard work too! I’m also pretty sure that there are some lessons out there for us to learn this season as well.

What is a Tarotscope? A Tarotscope is like a Horoscope for your zodiac sign, only it uses tarot cards. I decided to pull some cards for each sign to see what we need to look out for and what energy will be surrounding us all Summer ’16. Be sure to also read the Tarotscope for your Moon and Rising signs for deeper insight into what may come up for you from June through September of this year, if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere. If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere check back and read this when it’s Summertime in your part of the world!

Maiden of Cups - Lumina

Aries  – Maiden of Cups

Are you seeing the whole picture Aries or just a sliver of it? This Summer may hold the beginnings of a new emotional and spiritual journey for you – especially in how you deal with tough situations. The Maiden of Cups is inviting you to get in tune with your heart and sense of emotional expression and connection to others. Also, pay attention to your intuition at this time as it may give you some new insights.

Two of Cups - Lumina

Taurus – Two of Cups

This Summer, focus on deepening your friendships and sense of trust Taurus. Make new friends and strengthen current bonds. Find something in common with those who you assume you have no common ground with. Realize that we are all a reflections of each other. Commune with Spirit, your soul, and others this Summer.

Ace of Wands - Lumina

Gemini – Ace of Wands

The magick is happening Gemini! You will finally get out of that foggy funk you may have been in. You’ve gotten some great ideas after emerging from this state and now it’s time to put them into action – with a little help from the Universe! This is the spark, this is the start. Get busy this Summer! Action, no matter how small, is necessary to achieve your dreams. This is a magickal time for you and any creative ventures you partake in. Feel it, trust in it, and learn the power in your own sense of creativity.

Strength 2 - Lumina

Cancer – Strength

This Summer may require for you to reach deep within your gentle spirit Cancer and pull out your inner warrior! Allow your inner strength to help you continue to move forward and to make positive changes in your life. Never give up and don’t look back. Have the heart of a lion even though your voice may quiver and whisper like a lamb. If you’re having trouble with this or feel lost, ask your guides, angels, or deity to help you connect deeper to your inner strength.

Nine of Wands - Lumina

Leo – Nine of Wands

You may be on the defensive side this Summer, Leo. It’s good to protect what you’ve built but not to the extent that it is alienating to others. Let them share in the joy of your creations and actions too. Work on strengthening your sense of safety and security this Summer. Perhaps even do a Root Chakra meditation or carrying some crystals like Black Tourmaline or Red Jasper to help you. Don’t be so quick to block others out. Open your heart – not everyone is out to get you.

Nine of Cups - Lumina

Virgo – Nine of Cups

Make a wish Virgo! Now is the time to really think about your hopes and dreams. The energy is there for you to attain some (not all) this Summer. Dream and make plans! Believe it and you can achieve it. The good energy you’ve been sending out into the Universe is on it’s way back to you in a BIG way this Summer. Partner with the Universe to help make your Summer dreams come true.

King of Swords - Lumina

Libra – King of Swords

Stay focused, determined, calm, cool, and collected this Summer. You’re sense of intellect and order may feel stronger than ever Libra. You’ve already weighed your choices in your decision making. Now is the time to execute and be clear of focus. Try to enhance your sense of foresight this Summer. Look at how your present actions will affect future circumstances. Be unwavering in your desire to check out details and seeing the big picture. Rule with more intellect and with less emotion.

Nine of Swords - Lumina

Scorpio – Nine of Swords

Let go of the worry and anxiety this Summer, Scorpio! Don’t allow it to creep into your dreamy mind so that unwarranted fear can run amok! Work on staying grounded and what you can do in the present moment. If all you can do is take a deep breath – that’s fine too. Don’t panic or allow anxiety to be a paralyzing force for you this Summer! Focus on feeling safe and secure as well as how you can rise above the worry, fear, and stress. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it! Refuse to let unconscious fears keep you from living the life you were meant to!

Three of Wands - Lumina

Sagittarius – Three of Wands

Now is the time to get out there and travel Sagittarius! See the world, explore! Even if it’s just a new park near your home. Maybe start planning that dream vacation or even a small trip to a lake. Go exploring and connect with nature. Be daring, spontaneous, and adventurous this Summer! Look for joy and happiness all around you. You won’t be disappointed!

The Sun - Lumina

Capricorn – The Sun

Joy, happiness, and the promise of a new day surround you this Summer, Capricorn. Focus on staying positive and looking for the light in others around you. You are driven, determined, and ready for anything that comes your way – and you’ll do it with a smile on your face! Try to bring some of that sunshine to others you come into contact with. A smile  or laugh filled with loving positive energy is contagious!

Seven of Cups - Lumina

Pisces – Seven of Cups

Dreams, deceptions, excess, and restrictions may be a struggle for you this Summer, Pisces. Be careful what you wish for – all that glitters isn’t gold. Also know that sometimes what we think we want is not always for our best and highest good. Are there any consequences to your desires or what it takes to get them? What about sacrifices? Be aware of who, where, and what you put your faith and trust into. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket, take emotions out of it, and really think about if you want to continue in your current direction. Not everything is for everyone.

Four of Pentacles - Lumina

Aquarius – Four of Pentacles

Save your money this Summer, Aquarius! Work hard and build your resources. It is okay to let your hair down and spoil yourself every once in a while. If there is something you need to save for that is coming up in the next few months (I’m really feeling like this is in the Fall), start saving NOW! Also know that you don’t need a ton of money to have fun this Summer. There are tons of free or low cost activities you can do! Don’t deny yourself of Summer FUN! Remind yourself what you’re saving for and the long term benefits and don’t beat yourself up too bad if you slip up here and there.

 

Here’s to a Summer full of Sunshine lovelies!

strength - lumina

Have the strength and grace of a lion that does not need to use her roar to get her way.

You’re encouraged to go with the flow this Spring season Gemini! Your emotions, intuition, and psychic ability may be heightened. A dreamy, loving, and hope filled season for sure. Pay attention to your dreams at this time as well. Try keeping a dream or synchronicity journal and notice any reoccurring patterns or symbols. Just don’t keep your head in the clouds too long! Also, try to be careful not to become too emotional about things – especially that which is out of your control.

 

 

 

10 of pentacles - lumina

Cancer – Ten of Pentacles

This Spring will be a fruitful time of year for you Cancer. Work, finances, and familial situations should be looking very promising. You will see how your handwork and perseverance has paid off! This will be a time of security and stability. I feel a time of saving money and using it to do some Spring cleaning and fixing up of your home. You will be a very busy bee!

 

 

 

3 of wands - lumina

Leo – Three of Wands

Look out into the horizon and explore all of your glorious options this Spring Leo! See as far as the eye can see! A sense of adventure will awaken in you this season.

Virgo – Seven of Swords

Keep your wits about you this Spring as some things may have been slipping under your radar Virgo. Don’t allow fear and mistrust to dull your shine!

heirophant - lumina

Libra – The Hierophant

This Spring is calling you to learn something new Libra. It is encouraging you to deepen your knowledge – especially that of a spiritual nature. What new spiritual truths and skills have you been called to develop lately? Been wanting to read up on Shamanism or numerology? Take charge of your studies and your development this season! Some of the new tools you learn may come in handy in the future.

 

 

 

queen of pents - lumina

Scorpio – Queen of Pentacles

A caretaker energy surrounds you this Spring Scorpio. A need for comfort, sensibility, and familiarity – maybe a little rest as well. There will be a lot of time spent making sure the business of your business and that of your home are taken care of this season. Spend as much time in nature and with your family as possible to nurture yourself. As you nurture yourself so also will the things you are working on be nurtured.

 

 

 

ace of swords - lumina

Sagittarius – Ace of Swords

Clear cut decisions are going to be very important for you this Spring. Have a clear head. Keep your focus. Many new ideas may arise to your consciousness this season Sagittarius! Which ones will you grasp a hold of to develop? What direction are they pointing you in? Stay level headed and be aware of your thoughts at this time. Thoughts become things.

 

 

 

3 of cups - Lumina

Capricorn – Three of Cups

This spring should be a time of joyful celebration for you Capricorn! A time to reconnect with those you care about in a fun way. The good times will be rolling! I also get the feeling that there will be a lot of jumping around or traveling from place to place. Just make sure you take time out to rejuvenate yourself. You don’t want to burn yourself out with all that carefree fun you’re having – or have too much to catch up on once the party is over.

 

 

 

maiden of wands - lumina

Aquarius – Maiden of Wands

Young, wild, and fancy free energy surrounds you this Spring Aquarius. Creative energy will be flowing, burning up your insides, ready to make its way into the world through YOU! How awesome is that? This season would be a great time to start any new creative or artistic endeavors you’ve been pondering. Now is the time to put the passion into practice!

 

 

 

king of cups - lumina

Pisces – King of Cups

The water energy never stops flowing with you Pisces, and it won’t start this Spring! A calm river that runs deep, you will be cool, calm, and collected – dignified in how you handle emotions and new situations. Patient and methodical with a balance between head and heart. You will be more in touch with your emotions in a nurturing but strong manner. This new insight can deepen your sense of empathy towards others as well as their empathy towards you.
