Phew! What a crazy 6 weeks it’s been. There I was, thinking I was going to sail through this Mercury Retrograde. It did seem that way at first…and then it was early December all over again! So, apologies for the late tarotscopes. Scroll on down if you’re short on time, or read on if you have a spare minute or two because while I waited for more clarity, I did get some additional insights about what’s making this time so trying for so many of us.

It’s simply that we’ve changed so much with all that happened over the past 3-4 years, but we can’t see it ourselves. So, in our mind’s eye, we are the same. But we’re not. We’re older, wiser and more capable than we’ve ever been before. So why are so many of us still holding onto dreams, aspirations, and goals made twenty, ten or even five years ago. Most of these are unlikely to bring us the happiness we think they may—because what makes us happy now has changed since then. In short, we need to realign with who we are now. We have to plan ahead for happiness which stems from who we truly are, not from who we tried to be. We have to manifest what will truly fulfil us and allow us to express ourselves fully. We have to align with our true selves and our newest potential.

This retrograde is, in my opinion, asking us to be honest with ourselves and our lives, to make space for the new and next steps. And to recognise and celebrate how much more we’ve become—more than we ever thought we could be. Honor yourself and celebrate your life at least once over the next few weeks. As for me, I had a Wimpy burger and milkshake after ages, and got triggered like anything. But by the end of it all, for the first time, I felt my younger self would have been chuffed at who she’s grown up to be. I’m not what’s regarded as successful, but I’m truly me. I once wrote ‘Footloose and Soul-free’ in my creative-writing exercise at school. I’m still processing that one 😀

** Aries and Pisces, it’s still your month for the free Decan readings for March/April. Listen here.

 

 Aries

It’s a bit of a juggle, but you can get this balancing act right.

April begins on a great note. There’s a sense of peace and calm, of getting the mix right. And of being in the spotlight. Baking goodies, or cooking up a good plan just can’t go wrong. You’re in control. You’re on the ball. You’ve got this, and everyone loves you for it! What could be better?

Mid-April resolves an identity crisis. Or is it an issue of clothes and what to wear to a special event? An awards ceremony, perhaps? Whatever you choose will be just right, and is sure to catch the eye of someone intriguing. For singles, this could be a meeting of the heart, or a meeting of the mind. For couples, it’s going to turn romantic. If it’s not your partner’s eye on you, your partner is sure to woo you once more. In fact, partnerships and creative contracts of all kinds look good, too.

Come the end of the month, it will be crunch time regarding a decision. Problem is, you’ve got too little information to make a long-term commitment. Flexibility and impartiality will be your friends. So will looking to maintain that balance you’ve had most of this month. But above all, be kind and good to yourself and your body. Allow for rest and me-time within any new schedules or contracts you’re signing.

 

Taurus

Communication and stamina will see you winning through.

April begins on a complex note. You’re feeling light-hearted and playful, but an issue (or toxic person) from your past may rear their ugly head and threaten to pull your spirits down again. Be strong and use all the good judgement you’ve learned since. Remember you’ve changed and matured. Don’t allow your past to drag you back into toxic situations you’ve worked hard to overcome. On a lighter note, you’re looking sexier than you think, and matters bode well for romance.

By mid-April, frustration with work or communication may have you considering whether it’s time to quit. But remember, you’ve never really been a quitter in love or work. Take a breather. Allow your energy levels to replenish. See how far you’ve come, and look at things from a new perspective. You may not be on a level playing field as you initially thought. Be innovative and see what happens next. Wait for your right cue. Or perhaps you have to cue in others?

April winds down on a happier note though it may not look likely, at first. You’ll be working hard and finally seeing a project coming to a satisfying end. But be wary of someone trying to steal your thunder or sales. Keep your plans close to your chest and watch those nasties blunder instead. You’ll triumph in love or work, and be happier than you’ve been in a long, long time. Allow your playful side to reign again.

 

Gemini

There’s a break in the weather coming, but you may still need your raincoat.

As April begins, you’re in a very serious mood. There’s matters to bring to completion and it feels like time is running out. Plans may seem to need more time to reach fruition, and you’re stressing. You’re all in your head and it’s starting to hurt. Truth is, you’re juggling things admirably, even if your boss (or partner) seems to be making unreasonable demands. What you need is to do a little dance…Shake it off. Switch to another beat. Or just listen to your favourite feel-good music.

By mid-month, struggles in communication should end, leaving a more playful mood and revealing some interesting opportunities. There’s a big change coming—maybe even the break you’re looking for—but it needs some spit and polish, some dusting off or refining before it’s revealed in all its finery. Best be prepared to field a load of interesting questions too.

April winds down with a release of stress from the work sector. A toxic or health problem may also be receding, or perhaps it’s you saying goodbye to that boss of yours. Whatever it is, it’s impacting on your money-making ability. But that’s no longer your main focus. No, you’re firmly focused on widening your horizons, all while holding your dearest closer to you. Maybe too close? Avoid possessiveness and jealousy. It makes you look just a little too crazy.

 

Cancer

There’s travel and love on your mind, but without any tangibles, how can you make a move?

April begins with you feeling stable, and attempting to maintain the status quo. But, it’s not really what you want to do. You’re waiting on a new beginning—one that suits your personality or expectations of love more. Sadly, it seems delayed due to a financial or physical problem. Someone else needs to complete something before you can make your move, but they aren’t keeping you in the loop. Direct your energies elsewhere. There’s no need to sulk over an issue you have no control over.

Mid-April brings creativity and a hectic social life. The world proves a small place, highlighting issues of commitment in love and other partnerships. You may feel you’re on an emotional yo-yo. And you’re still waiting on another to sort that thing out. Still the world’s growing smaller for you this month, so much so that you may run into an ex or holiday flame and feel that spark again, if not a genuine warm glow.

As April comes to an end, so does your waiting, because someone will be waiting on you—perhaps hand on foot—attending to your every whim. They’re smitten by you, and why shouldn’t they be? You’re magnetic and generous and very, very appealing to just about everyone you meet. But when it comes to serious commitment…Well, one of you is going to have to wait just that little bit longer. Let’s hope it’s not you.

 

Leo

Things may seem upside-down as the month starts, but it’s all righted by the end.

April may begin with some crossed-wires—literal ones or electronic ones, but they certainly seem to be causing a delay in reaching your goal. Whether it’s to find the right ingredients in the supermarket or get your car back on the road, you’re going to have to keep your temper in order to keep your best judgement. And as for overseas trips, you may need to double-check all itineraries and be prepared to re-route if necessary in order to make your meetings or complete your holiday. On the plus side, any long wait will allow you time to find mental clarity in situations which appeared befuddled these past few months.

Mid-April brings some reassessment. Where are you putting your energies and are they bringing you an equal exchange of money or joy? Friendships may also change as motivations of others become clearer. You may have fewer apparent options, but at least they are genuine ones which you can now depend on. You’ll finally know where you stand and what kind of land lays in your near future.

April ends on solid note. You’ll see slow but sure progress in your projects. An enthusiastic, if somewhat dull individual, will provide you with assistance. Their straight-forwardness and earthy humor will help lighten your day, too. Your skill-set will grow, perhaps with some light study or a sense of stability at home. The last few days of the month will bring some welcome relaxation and time to pamper yourself—perhaps a weekend away?

 

Virgo

Someone up there likes you as even when things seem to be going wrong, they’re going right.

The month begins with a shiny new opportunity, an exciting new idea, or a beautiful and intriguingly magnetic new individual in your life. Even as your heart is bursting with glee and joy at the wonderful new prospects, you’re afraid of making an error in judgement. Double-check your messages, speak from your heart, and let the universe smooth things out for you.

Mid-April is full of hard-work and some nice ker-ching moments with more than one pot on the boil. Your efforts will be rewarded accordingly, and generously, if you’re detail-orientated. New concepts, products or travel-related things could all be worth the extra-effort you’ve put into them. Be sure to celebrate your achievements this month.

April winds down with a series of delays or frustrations, possibly regarding travel, or the breaching of an agreement. While it may anger you, or signal the end of a relationship, take a deep breath and allow yourself to see properly. There’s a happiness here—perhaps even a lucky escape from an unfair situation. And now you can concentrate on your love again, with your purse still heavy from your other successes.

 

Libra

Love’s here, but it looks very different from what you were thinking it would be.

At the beginning of April, you’ll feel stronger in your identity, yet confused over matters of love and possibly the status of your relationship. You’re not taking flak from anyone just now, but are you cutting your love too much slack? Perhaps they need to pull their weight more, especially in domestic matters. Passions are high. It’s a good time to discuss new partnerships and business ventures, but hold back on launching anything new for a few weeks.

Mid-month may bring a wonderful new romance for singles, but it may not deliver all that you wish for. They may be terribly good-looking, but also a terrible bore or a terrible miser. Couples may be on a romantic yo-yo, wildly in love the one minute and very irritated with each or needing their space the next. But at least you aren’t bored. A joint dream may also be delayed—a holiday, perhaps.

April comes to an end with a clash of personalities, possibly with an earth sign. You aren’t agreeing on money or property matters, or they may be shirking their responsibilities. You may feel like you’re playing mom while they take things easy. You won’t put up with this for long as you’re likely to retreat into your own space to gain some clarity and exercise some self-care. A Gemini may be just the person to talk things through with. Invite them over for tea or to the spa.

 

Scorpio

Major decisions will need to be made, and you’ll have the clarity to make good ones.

At the beginning of April, you may regret a financial investment, or find that you need to purchase an expensive new appliance. Don’t fall for canny sales-talk, and do your own research. You may find a new solution or a very special deal, but not on a new car. Put your inventiveness to good use, especially when it comes to entertaining or hosting others.

By mid-April, a project will be complete. An opportunity to travel may also be possibly, but only if you let go an old belief or condition. Perhaps it’s time to try camping or visit a new region? Social situations may change as well, allowing you to express yourself more easily.

By month’s end, you’ll have to find our balance, especially regarding family and finances. Someone who may have been left out or estranged, may return to the fold. You’ve still got major decisions to make. Some may be of a legal or contractual issue. Look for long-term and sustainable solutions, and again, do your homework and trust your intuition.

 

Sagittarius

A hectic start to the month has you reassessing your priorities and making long-term decisions.

April begins in a chaotic rush. A miscommunication may have you chasing your own tail and exhausting you. You also suspect someone’s not telling you the whole truth, or that something’s been hidden from you. Slow down, find your balance and let things fall into place before you rearrange them. And if you’re planning on stalking anyone, don’t.

By mid-April, you’ll be seeing the end of a situation near, allowing you more time to consider your options. Boredom or restlessness with your current lifestyle could have you trying out new hobbies or a fitness regime. You’re balancing the budget too, and perhaps enjoying your new budget more than you thought you would. Life will start to make sense again.

The month comes to an end on a contemplative mood. You’ll gain the clarity you’ve been seeking and a better sense of timing. You may make some new investments or shuffle your old ones. You may also cash in one investment to go on a once-in-a-lifetime experience or to propose/get married to your partner. Life begins to feel like fun again!

 

Capricorn

Something’s ending, and while you can’t see what’s coming in, it may take you further than you thought possible. Be ready to surf that wave!

There’s just one little niggly thing to take care of as April begins, and then you’re free to enjoy your vacation, a new course, or a new job. A little secret, or information withheld, may aggravate you for a few days, perhaps an extension of the that niggly thing. By the 10th you’ll be carefree and enthusiastic about the future, once more.

As mid-month arrives, you may be on that vacation or away from home. The kids may not be around, but your mom or mother-in-law may. Miscommunication with her could lead to some humorous moments, but also exasperation. Ensure she has all her medications or strange ‘must-have’ remedies with her. Home could also feel unsettled and chaotic during this period. Try finding some peace of mind on long-drives or coffee-shop culture.

April winds down with home settling down, though for some it could be in a new location. Others may have a longer distance to travel to work, but one which brings more balance to your day. There’s more money coming in, too—possibly from a new contract, or even the paying off a long-standing debt. You’ll be feeling well in control and satisfied with life before long.

 

Aquarius

Boredom flees as a cunning plan to hold onto something/someone you hold dear takes over.

The month begins with a feeling of boredom or restlessness, irritation at your beloved or romantic status, and a whole lot of housework. You’re busy thinking up plans to improve your love-life, get help with housework, earn a few more bucks/accolades, or change your social situation. What you wouldn’t give to own a Stepford Wife/Husband this month. But you’ve got to admit you’re fitter and thinking smarter than you’ve been in quite some months.

By mid-April, you’re got your sense of balance back, but it’s precarious. Your romantic situation is still unsatisfactory. Couples may be striving to find a better and equal domestic situation, while singles are diligently filtering whom they date or date again. There’s lots of physical movement, and your favorite place this month may well be the gym or the sports club.

The month ends with a struggle with an equally matched opponent in a social or domestic situation. Or perhaps it’s a sibling you’re at odd with, possibly over an heirloom or other possession. Never fear, it looks like you win through. If any of your furniture or belongings were mislaid in transit, you’re receive them back in good condition. Socially, there’s little movement, but you can change that next month.

 

Pisces

A delay in travel or a break in your journey may make your wish come true!

April may bring some car trouble, or a sense of stagnation in your work. You hate feeling so stuck, but a kindly fairy-godmother-type (or your spiritual guides) reveals a life changing secret to you! And if you’re stuck in transit on an international flight, guess who’s ending up with 5-star treatment? Best of all, you’ll learn a surprising new strength of yours and experience a new passion for life. And if you’re single, guess how you’re meeting your next love? Yup, you’re living the fairy-tale as the month begins.

Mid-April sees you with amazingly clear intuition. Your insight will cut through any confusion and allow you to release unhelpful bonds. You may also travel to a graduation or another recognition ceremony to signal the end of an era in your life. Your communication is clear and concise. People are impressed with your clarity and skills.

As April winds down, you’re reaching for the stars and getting a helping hand. Your creativity or communication brings you even more rewards—a new job or client, or an award within your community. There may even be a satisfying monetary component. Perhaps the winning of a scholarship or a lucrative contract. You’ll be well contented with you lot by the end of it all.

 

Have a super fab April, and watch out for that bonus I promised you back in Feb 😀

Your Tarotscope March 2018

by Leenna

Wow! Can you believe how quickly March has arrived? Everyone’s experiencing their own situations this March. Be sure to keep those you love in the loop. Take that minute to call, or set aside an hour for a good catch-up. And Happy Holidays to you! Go easy on the chocolate.

* for entertainment purposes.

Pisces

You’ll have to trust your good judgement, especially when it comes to love.

March begins with you deep in thought, ruminating darkly about something that was said about your looks or beliefs. And perhaps only the doggie or kitty really gets what you’re trying to say. For sure, your mum (or mother-in-law) doesn’t get you at all. Why do people have to be so mean? The good news is you don’t have to. Let it all flow away, tune it all out, and the need to binge-eat, and fearing the consequences, will fade away like a bad dream.

Mid-month brings some romance, or hope of romance. If it’s with your partner, you’re in luck! But there may be some rescheduling due to a sick child or doggie/kitty. But you’re still in luck, romantically. Sadly for singles, it may not be so, with the rescheduling never being…rescheduled. Never-mind, it’s still early days. And at least, the child/doggie/kitty is well again 🙂

By month’s end, you may be feeling a little exhausted or emotionally drained. Again, tune out the negativity, be hopeful about family and love, and revel in your creativity. Some alone time may be just what you need to visualize and create your own dream-come-true.

 

Aries

Someone’s not been listening to their intuition…Quick! Tune into it now.

So, you’re kind of stuck in your head or some instruction manual as March begins. You’re scratching your head and trying this and that, and feeling like if you just had that last little piece of information…The answer is right in front of you, even if it’s not logical or in the instructions. Trust yourself and your skills. You’ve got this. Sometimes all it needs is to ensure that the darn thing is plugged in, and that the electricity is on.

By mid-month, life feels lighter, and so does your purse/wallet. You may be going out lots with friends/your partner/on dates, but it feels good. You may have to let a few luxuries go, especially when it comes to new appliances, but it’s still all fine with you. There’s no way you’re going back to the stuck-at-homeness of earlier in the month.

As March ends, you’re getting out of a sticky situation—one you never would have been in if you had listened to your intuition at the beginning of the month. You also have to accept that not all problems can be solved by logic alone, or by knowledge alone. Gut instincts are there for a reason. Pay heed or pay the price. Lucky for you, life is about transformation, and this transformation is looking to go in your favor.

Taurus

Dust off that charm. Polish those romantic notions. It’s time to act.

March begins on a happy note. Hanging out with the family may bring some changes, and much discussion, but as long as you remain flexible in your plans or open to compromise, it’s all good. It’s also a good time to woo your love once more, in a subtle, unconditional way.

Mid-march may bring some arguments and power-plays—and if they aren’t on the radio, they could cause a little bit of havoc to your love-life. Ensure you’re communicating well, and, if you aren’t sure, don’t even try to flirt. It won’t end well. Be quietly helpful and talk to your trusted friends. There may be something vital you’ve missed.

By month’s end, make sure your partner knows how you really feel about them. Someone else (a bad boy/girl type) may be trying to steal them away, if only for a dance. It’s time to turn your charm up to full notch, display your culinary skills (or knowledge of little-known culinary gems to visit) and go the whole romantic mile. But don’t write them poetry! Not this time. Really, just don’t. On a less stressed note, your dreams are almost within reach. Just a little bit of patience is needed.

 

Gemini

It’s a hectic month. And, if you’re traveling, or beginning a new relationship, you’ll have your success.

March begins with a slow note, one in which the dishes may pile up and the house screams for attention. Your energy levels may be down and so may your bank account. Accept that life has changed, that your priorities have changed, and that you need to take care of yourself—at least for one weekend. The rest will be sorted out much quicker than anticipated—but only when you’re rested.

There’s a sense of ease and nostalgia by mid-March. You may run into old friends (or old flames). You may realize how much you’ve changed. Communication may be a bit problematic. Choose your words with care and ensure you’re well understand. In foreign countries, actions may work better in getting your message across than trying out the local language. Or make sure your phone has sufficient battery for the translator to work well.

Come the end of March, you’re brimming with success and great energy. Singles may find an exciting new partner, while others may reconnect with their beloveds and share a special celebration. More travel may be planned. A long distance relationship for some, perhaps, or an exciting new job?

 

Cancer

It’s your kind of month!

March begins with you holding things together, keeping within budget and being prudent with everything else—all the things you might have found hard to do in previous months. There’s a new idea screaming to attention, too. It’s a little naughty, a little precocious, even. But it’s got you intrigued, so why not everybody else? Then again, this could be the traits of your partner, or of someone who’s go their eye on you.

Mid-month is a dream come true! There’s love, lots of inspiration and an easy flow to life which has you glowing. Be sure to keep one foot on the ground, and if you’re beginning something new or receiving an award, remember all who’ve helped you there. Oh, and for those of you wanting a baby, (or not), it’s wonderful news (or not).

By then end of March, the smooth flow continues, except for an eddy around your partner or another significant air-sign in your life. They might not like all the attention you’re getting, or perhaps that your focus is everywhere but on them, especially in social situations. Perhaps some quality time or chocolate will help you reconnect. Or maybe a little playfulness.

 

Leo

Family and new contracts are on your mind, less so than new projects.

As March begins, you may be feeling uncommonly serious. There are family matters to take care of—perhaps a new home, or another move, or just other family stuff which has been piling up. You’re proud, too. You have it all under control…but for the garden. Call in a landscaper or work out an easy schedule so you can still do all the fun things.

Mid-month may be a little demanding at work. A shortage of skills or attention to detail (on the part of another) may appear to be your problem at first, but it’s all soon resolved. You’ll be able to make time for family, and fun, instead of working late nights. There’s a party, too? Perhaps at your new home? Or a fun night out on the town.

By the end of the month, communication may be a problem, especially with your partner or an air-sign. Harsh words or selective hearing could impact your temper and your verbalizing. Call a time out, and if you feel like banging your head, make sure it’s at a mosh-pit. Once everyone’s calmed down it will be back to happy families again.

 

Virgo

It’s good to be home! So why do you feel so unsettled?

You may begin the month in a new domestic situation, or perhaps a short holiday at home. You’ve imagined it as one long PJ-day: your feet up on the stool, bingeing on Netflix or soapies, or catching up on your computer games… But. There’s always a but, isn’t there? Or is someone butting into your life? You need to take it easy, to chill, to relax. What mother used to say, doesn’t always apply now you’re all grown up.

By Mid-March, you’re feeling free to be yourself though it looks like you may have fewer immediate options available. It could be because you’ve made a decision. You’re feeling calmer and more on track now that the emotional stress has subsided. And while the money issue may worry you, you’re at peace with life.

A new beginning, or message, may be slow to come or the money issue is worrying you. You may second guess yourself. And second guess the second guess. And third guess the…Oh, just sit down and go back over everything! There’s a wee detail you may have missed. Did you press the SEND button? Never-the-mind, it all ends well.

 

Libra

There’s a mischief-maker around you. Never fear, you can outsmart them, especially if they are your love.

March begins on a fun note. There’s an unexpected offer or love, or an offer by your love. It’s a bit of a shock, but in a nice way. Still, you feel you should be questioning motives. Keep an open-mind and don’t agree to anything intangible.

Around mid-month, you may feel disappointed. Someone may have rescinded on their offer or promise. You’re wondering if they’re playing mind-games. A little research will reveal the truth. But keep an open mind and ask for tangibles.

As the month ends, the tables may be turned, and you may be the one calling the shots or taking the lead. It could be that you’re in a race, too. And you’re likely to win a prize, But you may look a mess in any photos. Ensure you take the right kit bag. Your love-life picks up, and now may be the time that a promise is made good.

 

Scorpio

Wishing for a Ferrari will bring you a car. But don’t worry, it will still be red.

March begins with an ending. It’s a relief as you return to your routine and life becomes more predictable. You’re intent on securing your financial situation, and if you follow your intuition, you’re likely to realize more than you thought possible.

Mid-March looks awesome! You have love and success and happy families—everything which makes you smile with satisfaction and say, ‘Life is good.’ Your intuition is strong. Singles may meet a soulmate, while couples reconnect on a deeper level. In fact, you and your partner may read each other’s minds. But you like it.

The month ends with you slightly disappointed. You didn’t get exactly what you expected. But you did get something! And while it may not be as flashy, or as high-profile, as you’d like, it is more dependable and suited to you and your family. Besides, this is the less stressful situation, and you’ve still got the goodies. More reason to smile, isn’t it?

 

Sagittarius

Switch out of that doom and gloom perspective and latch onto all that’s blooming.

You won’t have to look far for the bright spots as March begins. You’re in a new situation or the past is no longer pressing on you. Your circle of friends may have changed. And, well, there’s a lot of good will, if not a steady flow of abundance, finding its way to you. While not a karmic situation, what you put into a situation will be appreciated and bring rewards.

By mid-March, any feelings of being stuck or that life is stagnant may recede. Happiness finds you, or someone brings some sunshine back into your life. You’re full of well-being and wisdom. Life just keeps getting better as Spring arrives, or seeds planted last year start to bloom.

As the month ends, obstacles are removed when new ideas arrive, or obligations are fulfilled. Now it’s all about healthy change and going with the flow. Your focus is on health and a better, simpler lifestyle. And remember to clean out the fridge.

 

Capricorn

Time to get the recipe right.

As March begins, you’re winding up a project or moving onto a more responsible role. You’re happy in yourself as you feel you can accomplish anything. Others look up to you and your sense of success is strong. It’s a powerful time for you, except in the kitchen. Recipes are written down for good reason.

By mid-March, you’re feeling contented at home, though perhaps a little overworked. A trip with your partner may be delayed. But, truth be told, you’re more than happy to enjoy the comforts of home. Artistic projects may go a little haywire. Remember, there’s a recipe for success here, too.

March ends with good news. It may concern children or a water-sign. Family may travel to visit you, perhaps on the spur of the moment. Love looks good and reciprocated, with a little bit of playfulness to add to your light spirits.

 

Aquarius

Warning! Dramatic times in love ahead!

March begins with a feeling of being freed, or cut-off. Some may end a relationship or partnership. Others may be apart from their beloved. But, for the most part, you’re relieved. You can finally be yourself! You’ve got plans. You can do just about anything you want…
If you’ve had surgery, you may want to ensure you’re on the right fluid levels and intake once you’re back home.

By mid-month, you may feel a little stuck. The possibility of a mini-identity crisis may be high. You’ll cycle through your wardrobe in double-quick time, or go shopping for some unique pieces. But hold on a sec. This is what you always do. Why repeat a cycle? Sit down and journal. Correspond with yourself. Ask the really big question you’ve failed to answer fully: What do you really want in life? I doubt it’s new clothes.

As the month comes to an end, your energy is lighter and more exuberant. New offers of love come your way. Reconciliation and reunions are likely. Romance abounds. But which will you plant now you have a new chance or a second chance? Don’t overthink this question. Just let your heart answer.

Have a super-fab March! 😀

Capricorn

Follow your inclinations—those most whimsical thoughts—and see where they lead. It’s amazing what you’ll accomplish within a short space of time.

February begins with a rush of activity and emotions. You could be meet a playful (or immature) person who either infuriates you or lifts your spirits like no other. (Yup, it could be your new pet). Your creativity seems boundless, but your lack of confidence may prevent you from expressing your talents widely.

Spiritually, you may become more active: joining a study group or reading extensively in subjects that interest you. You’ll also begin questioning teachings and beliefs, especially of mentors and teachers who appeal only to the emotions, or who aren’t transparent in their reasoning.

A younger person could pursue you romantically. You may question their motives, and are unlikely to allow the situation to develop. This seems especially so if you’re off to an island holiday with younger companions. Nevertheless, you’re likely to fall in love with your destination and resent having to go back home.

If your trip proves unromantic, or if you are coupled, the scenery and space is likely to inspire you for the next five months.

Mid-month brings some excitement, a wedding or other important celebration. It may prove exhausting, both physically and financially.

Some may relocate to the coast for a lower salary, but a better lifestyle. Others may find their holiday suitor more persistent than expected, especially around Valentines Day! Either way, Valentines Day should bring you some fun.

Work-wise, you may be a little nervous at the thought of learning new skills and having to rebuild or restructure in some way. Your main concern is the budget. Hold on till the end of the month. It looks like good news is not too far away.

The month comes to an end with a reunion with an intelligent, talkative person.

Your negotiation skills will shine, and your sense of reasoning will be immaculate. Argue your case as you see fit.

Any concerns about your home or new accommodation will be addressed. In fact, you’ll find yourself settling into contentment much more easily, and with half the bother, than expected.

Financially, things look fine and stable, with new situations bringing more stability. Your accommodation costs could also be lower than expected, Final contracts will be signed with pleasure.

Additional Insights

Influence, Secrets, Order

February is likely to show you a change in influence in your life, primarily in spiritual beliefs, but also in personal influences. You may switch radio stations, change your playlist radically, follow different newsfeeds and blogs, and read in genres of subjects you haven’t ventured into before. It’s all rather exciting!

You may also find your own personal influence is growing, or that you’re running in very influential circles.

Secrets in love are likely to weigh on your mind, and you’ll need to be careful of gossips and gossiping. You may also find others choosing you as confidante at the most unlikely times and places. Systems-based studies, which may have been challenging in the past, will be much easier understood.

Order in your personal life and space will please you after a major upheaval or reorganisation. You may have more cupboard space, or an easier to manage garden. New laws, roads, or other communal changes in your environment, may also make your morning routine less chaotic.

§

Aquarius

Stop concentrating on should-have-beens, could-have-beens and you’ll realise your dreams all that quicker.

You have what you want as the month begins, but…you’re regretting the past, or missing someone.

You’re thinking it would be perfect, if only… It’s an emotional time for you, perhaps with more tears than you’d like. But you do have all that you need and want. Why are you not allowing yourself to enjoy it? Take a deep breath and bring yourself back to the present (and yes, back to the future) and smile at all the beauty around you.

Spiritual insights are also crowding for your attention, but your sniffly nose may be blocking them. Take another deep breath and pay attention. The universe has something to show you.

It’s a sociable, hectic time of year, though most of it seems to be work related.

You may miss dinner with the family, but work may treat you to a meal if you’re working late. You may miss an anniversary to (let’s hope you remember your own birthday!), which may have you considering your priorities for the year.

There’s some niggly thoughts or feelings you’d like to deal with, but with your hectic schedule, there’s little time. Let’s be honest, you’re just a little afraid to explore those feelings. Never mind, it seems you’re going to have a ball at a Ball, or go dancing like a queen. It will keep those thoughts at bay, and help you get a new perspective.

By month’s end, a Libra and Gemini are both a boon and a curse. They like your ideas, but pick it apart as only other air-signs can.

You may feel a little heart-broken, but they are right. Fixing things makes for a stronger outcome or product. The same applies to your personal life. An air-sign will tell you as they see it (otherwise known as the bald or unfudged truth). While you may hate them for it, it will help you release those niggly thoughts and feelings. Take a deep breath and feel the lightness in your heart. Now you can finally move on.

Additional Insights

Domination reversed, Harmony, Isolation

There’s no particular thing you’re focussed on this month, yet your work does not suffer. However, you may be in a weaker or less prominent position that before. Perhaps your words don’t carry as much weight. It may take some getting used to.

There’s harmony and balance this month, especially with a Libran, perhaps a brother or sister. You’ll find this harmony mostly outdoors, and perhaps in a place where large numbers of birds gather. You’ll need this special place as you may feel too isolated, which may prolong your emotional and spiritual confusion.

§

Pisces

This month may have a stop-start feel, but by the end you’ll have all that you need, and then some.

February begins with a call to action or exciting news about a new opportunity.

Interviews will go well in the first two weeks of the month, but they may take a while to get back to you. Keep an open mind and hope for the best.

There’s messages of love coming your way, too. Perhaps from an admirer based across the country from you or even further afield. If you’re back in the dating field, things should go well, but again you may not hear back from someone you really like—at least not till the end of the month.

Mid-February looks busy. You may have to give the kids some extra help, or you may be returning to school or online classes yourself. There’s little time to plan ahead, but you’ll make good progress.

Your skills are growing. If you’re following up on that interview, you may want to make mention of your study or new skill. Ditto for you kids if they’re looking for a scholarship or entrance into a special program.

Back home, you’re staying within budget and may even have a little extra to decorate or for some DIY.

Success comes at the end of the month! There’s happiness and stability at home, with lots to celebrate with the family.

Your intuition is spot on. You have the self-confidence and trust to follow through. You’re looking and sounding great (if a little mysterious) but it’s all for the good.

You may hear good news, perhaps for your kids as well as you. Your chances of securing that job or client look even better than before, or something much more to your liking has fallen into your lap. You couldn’t ask for a better gift from the universe.

But do be careful when being intimate with your partner as the likelihood of conceiving is quite high.

Additional Insights

Achievement reversed, Submission reversed, Concentration

You may have to complete a course of study or redo a certification before the month is over. Perhaps you still have some tasks to complete at home as well.

If you’re making applications for you or your kids, you may have to pay extra fees (especially if you’re late) or have to resubmit due to a clerical error/incomplete information. But stick with it. It looks worth the extra trouble.

Study will go well. You concentration levels and motivation are high. Turn of the social media and mute the phone. You’ll get twice as much done.

§

Aries

There’s a lot going on, but the worst of the struggle is over, especially in love and in gaining new opportunities.

February begins with you reuniting with your loved ones after a long trip or flight.

During your time away, you may have thought a lot about your relationship and what it needs. Now you’re ready to put things into play. During your trip, contracts may not have worked out the way you’ve envisioned, and now you’re just happy to be home.

You’re hoping for a relaxing time, but the phone may constantly ring and your new travel plans may be in place before you’ve unpacked your bags. Nevertheless, you do get a few blissful days to just relax.

Groundwork laid beforehand may result in an easy time for you. Communication is not a problem, as one opportunity leads to the next. The only cloud on the horizon: your relationship.

Watch your health and what you eat, especially the first couple of days of your new trip. And, of course, rest well.

Watch out for unfair practices from those around you, or odd paragraphs in new contracts you’re considering. Read the fine print and all versions carefully. You may want to get legal advice if you’re signing an international contract.

As the month ends, there may be harsh words and impulsive, dramatic actions when you go out. Aim for harmony, but don’t play the fool. Your partner is not playing games this time.

Singles may find an exciting new person in their life—one who seems like a breath of fresh air with just a hint of a rebel. But they aren’t interested in a relationship, only friendship.

Ideas may fall on deaf ears. Support for change you feel passionate about is likely to be low. Save your energy and affection for your partner, or for your home once you return. Rest is now needed.

Additional Insights

Egotism reversed, Decision reversed, Generosity reversed

You may have to set your ego aside and allow your partner to rule the roost. Perhaps you’ll have to let your potential client/customer/boss lead the way or the negotiations, too.

A decision may be modified very quickly, or overturned. While initially this may appear to be in your favour, look at matters carefully to ensure it is. Consider other options and alternatives.

A lack of generosity, on your part or others, may lead to misunderstandings and later problems. People around you may prefer to judge you harshly for your actions and behaviour. Ensure you understand foreign cultures interact with, and do show your beloved some extra TLC.

§

Taurus

Love is in the air, and Valentines Day looks to be a very memorable one for you!

February begins with your eye on someone special or someone else looking at you in a special way.

You’re taking steps to meet them half-way, still, it’s awkward and sweet at the same time. A declaration of love may be made, but only if both parties feel comfortable. Couples may be circling in a similar way, perhaps over plans for Valentines Day or another anniversary.

You’re got your eyes open, and have almost made up your mind about work and other matters. But love, and your romantic options, remain uppermost in your mind.

You’re looking for inspiration, class, and a meaningful connection—both in romance and other aspects. You may spend hours and hours shopping for the right gift or seeking the ultimate venue.

Mid-February (I’m sure it’s Valentines Day or the day before) brings the big reveal and the declaration of love. Alas, it may not all go as planned. But cheer up, you will get what you want, especially greater decadence and intimacy.

In love, you and your beloved are of the same mind and intentions. Love declared now will be binding, as will promises made. Neither of you will ever forget this, for better or worse. You may find yourself obsessing even more about your love after this event. Be sure, your beloved is just as crazy about you. Caution is needed to not become too emotionally dependent on each other at this stage.

February winds down with you inspired and working hard.

You creativity and persistence is noted by a higher-up who may give you a little more than you can comfortably handle. Speak up before it becomes a habit.

Your passion is still high as you continue courting your beloved.

But someone may want to fit you into a mould you aren’t comfortable with. Ensure you and your beloved keep your own hobbies and interests. Losing your identity to each other is not as romantic as it sounds, nor is it healthy for either of you.

Additional Insights

Protection reversed, Defence, Fortune reversed

You may feel most vulnerable and shy when it comes to your beloved or a declaration of love. You won’t want to speak about it to others. If you don’t want babies, take precautions. You may also feel in a dangerous position at work. Perhaps someone is testing you, or competition is growing unhealthy.

You may feel your beloved is always able to drop your guard. Around others you may appear very defensive. You may also be over-protective of your love to the point where they may be overwhelmed and appear defensive—if only to maintain their independence. Back off and trust your love’s good sense.

At work, it may appear that luck is against you. Others may try to profit from your work or dump their tasks on you. Speak up and maintain your defences at work. I feel its a temporary situation.

§

Gemini

It’s a stable start to the month, with excitement and love coming later.

As February begins, you’ll be very focused on your career and long-term prospects. While holding onto your current position, you may be looking for more opportunities and generosity.

You aren’t prepared to lose traction in your career now. You feel you’ve put too much effort into it already. You may also be holding onto property in the hopes it will grow in value.

In seeking new opportunities, you may explore unusual options. You are drawn to nature and natural products at this time, and may choose to invest or work with them.

You’re looking for a good return for your time and investments. Use your intuition, and be prepared to think very short-term in order to reap the best benefits, especially if it involves projects you’ve long been working on. If its intellectual property, you may gain the most by selling those rights outright. But seek a second opinion, especially from a Capricorn or fire-sign.

Mid-February is alight with creativity and passion.

It may take some effort to catch your beloved’s attention, especially if they are single, or very busy on a project. There’s likely to be lots of communication and even some banter before you succeed. Your beloved is not going to make things easy for you. Perhaps it’s a game you both play; but it borders on obsession. The mutual attraction is strong but can lead to some possessive and insensitive behaviour. You may feel you’re literally playing with fire. Don’t get burnt.

In work matters, your creativity and charm serve you well, as does you passion. While you impress the right people, you may also be offered a very tempting offer which could tie you up in a complicated and unfair contract. Know what you’re signing away and to whom.

February draws to a close on a more spiritual note.

Love is sweet after the heat of the previous few weeks. You’re aware of your soul-mate and true feelings. This may be a new person in your life, or your previously mentioned beloved.

New contracts and studies are possible at this time, but will require you to take a step back, or to begin new projects.

Best of all, love seems stable and secure, as the connection you have deepens and sweetens. It’s also a playful, fun time in which you can explore your imagination and share your experiences.

Additional Insights

Status reversed, Innovation, Friendship

You aren’t much interested in status this month, more in financial security and getting a return for your time and energy. You may not renew professional memberships, and seek to enter new, less established, but open-minded organisations.

Your inventiveness and problem-solving ability is at its height. You have solutions for almost any problem except for love. You’ll work best with little supervision and pre-set rules. You’re all about writing new rules.

Friendship may strengthen into love. Friends may also support you in your innovations and new endeavours. A childhood friend, or a playful one who delights in nature as you do, may return.

§

Cancer

It’s your time to shine, but you may feel like you need some time out.

As February begins, you have the power to bring your castles in the air down to the ground.

Your focus is good and you have all the resources you need. Write down you ideas from the first three days of the month. They may open doors.

Others may try to impress you with other ideas, products, or distract you from your plans, but you remain unimpressed.

An intense period ends. Perhaps you stop waiting for an offer of love or work which never comes, and begin working on your hopes and dreams instead.

Some of your creative projects may still need refinement, or a period in which to incubate. If matters appear to be going slowly, re-evaluate them in a few weeks.

By Mid-month, you may be in a dreamy phase as you envision a better future.

The offer of love or partnership may come now, but could off to a slow start. You may take a while to consider if it’s the one for you. There may also be a physical distance between you, and neither of you may be able to travel to the other.

Money may be a little slower in coming in than expected, or expenses could be high if you have to buy an appliance.

Revelations are happening to you all the time. If single, you may get messages or inklings from your soul-mate. If coupled, you’ll try to determine if you are in the right relationship for you.

Despite your dreamy mood and high spirits, you are still very focussed and unlikely to fall for anything less than the truth.

February draws to an end with you taking some time out to consider your options, or to visualise your next step.

You may cancel a trip in order to pursue an amazing opportunity. Perhaps an inquiry from earlier in the month results in a greater outcome than expected.

But you may feel exhausted. You’ll avoid much socialising, preferring instead to go on retreat or spend lots of time in meditation. You may study a short personal course. This is a special time for you as you’re actively calling a time-out to regroup yourself and your energies. You’re also considering the quickest and healthiest way to move your dreams forward.

Additional Insights

Criticism reversed, Enterprise, Practicality reversed

Your ideas or work may be better received than expected this month. Self-criticism fades when you de-stress towards the end of the month. You may also be more accepting of perceived faults or lapses by others. Others may come to you because you’re unlikely to judge them on their decisions or behaviour at this time.

It’s looking good for the launch of a new project or business. Other ideas or projects you’re working on may gain support, too. You’re being very business-minded but others may not appreciate your approach.

You may be accused of not being practical. Perhaps others would like to influence you more, or to have a little of what you’re having. Others may also say you’re being impractical in love. The practicalities of physically travelling this month may also be overwhelming.

For the most part, you are holding back on many of your plans or ideas.

§

Leo

A playful and passionate start to the month leads to a deeper connection with your beloved. But all’s not quite plain sailing.

You’re creative and mischievous as February begins, feeling wonderfully alive. You’re proud of yourself too.

You may begin an imaginative or inventive new project, one which feels like a good return for your time and investment. Ideas flow easily. Communication is good.

Passion is high, and returned. Couples may be more playful and demonstrative, while singles may fall quickly and intensely in love, perhaps with someone younger.

Finances are sound. You’re feeling comfortable and magnanimous.

Mid-February may bring a delay in travel or lower-energy levels, but love and togetherness make up for it.

Conflict may arise at work, perhaps over a misunderstanding or ill-thought out words. Avoid impulsive decisions. Feathers may take longer to smooth than expected.

A project may be extended, perhaps delaying a relocation or a travel. You may also suffer from long hours and possible exhaustion.

Love’s around you all this time. You may take a short break to the ocean or other large body of water. Your love will meet you halfway. An engaging encounter with a marine animal may affect you profoundly.

February winds down with an intensity of feeling. Your connection with your partner grows even deeper, and your spirituality is rising.

You may feel intensely angry or frustrated at first, perhaps over the extended project at work or further misunderstandings. You may choose to leave the project or be assigned elsewhere.

Your stress levels decrease, and you’ll feel calmer. Healing from work and other hurts can occur. You may also find your nervousness in love, or over another matter, decreasing.

Your intuition is very strong. Your connection with your partner will be intense even if there is distance. You may also decide to return to your studies, or decide to research aspects of spirituality that interest you.

Additional Insights

Seduction, Friendship, Choices reversed

It’s a great time for singles to meet an intriguing and fun new partner. If the relationship doesn’t blossom into romance, it’s likely to remain a strong friendship. Couples may be more engaged with each other, their friendship also growing stronger or reaffirmed.

Friendships with colleagues could go both ways. False friends may try to compel you into a corner professionally in order to lessen your choices and broaden theirs. True friends may point out the false friends and help you understand your choices better.

You may change your mind about a choice made earlier in the month. You could dissolve a friendship or leave a flirtation to return to an old flame, especially after mid-month.

§

Virgo

Fortune favours you as February begins, but you’ll have to believe it to hang onto it.

As the month begins the Wheel of Fortune turns in your favour, perhaps resurrecting an old flame, or an old idea.

You’ll feel a shift in energies, feeling that fate may be rushing you towards something which you feel unprepared for, but which excites you. It may remind of a similar time in your life—perhaps the first rush of love, or your first real pay-check.

People from your past may re-enter your life in random ways, or you may be reminded of times past: school and your early work days. You may also think of old childhood friends.

Love is likely to strike on a day at the beach or on a rainy day. It may come as a shock as the person may look very much like your first love, or be your first love. They are likely to be visiting the area, not local. Couples are likely to reconnect both emotionally and physically.

Work matters also go well. An old opportunity may re-surface allowing you to accept it this time round.

Mid-February may bring a feeling of unreality and a sense of disempowerment ,at first.

You may not believe your life, leaving you feeling ungrounded or walking on air. But you may also feel vulnerable and insecure.

Finances may be a little unstable, until later in month, when a short trip or a new move stabilises matters.

Spiritually, you may be ungrounded and confused, perhaps questioning much of what you’ve learnt or expected now that life has changed so much so quickly. Try not to self-sabotage.

Following your inspiration for your greatest ideas will bring you more fulfilment later. Perhaps it’s time to take a chance and go with the flow, or allow your passions to blossom.

Emotional and spiritual matters continue to be your focus. You may need to adjust to a new way of being.

As February ends, you may be considering your options. Try not to let your self-doubt or disbelief rule out viable options. It’s a great time to visualise and daydream too. If you’re making wishes, make them count.

Feelings of vulnerability or a change in your spiritual foundation may see you walking away from your usual support group. You may seek your answers elsewhere—ones which resonate more personally and deeply with you. Discontent with your career or hobby may also surface.

Love may be more successful, but a physical distance may dampen your mood, but only a little. You want to study your feelings before you delve into relationships even deeper.

Additional Insights

Protection reversed, Status, Seduction

Your Valentines experience may begin before most others.

You may let down your guard at the beginning of February, then regret it later when you get confused about the direction life seems to be going. If you are feeling insecure or stressed by your environment, matters should improve by the 3rd week of the month.

Your status may be relevant to your future opportunities. Perhaps you are not wanting a relationship if you wish to travel or follow a major life change. Couples may be moving out of a shaky period and into a more stable one.

Life is seducing you into a new phase. Love will be easy and fun, romance found not just between people, but seeming in the air itself. Singles may find it difficult to remain so. Couples may be more flirtatious and playful.

§

Libra

A confusing beginning to the start of the month ends in a stable and hopeful outcome. Travel looks good.

As February begins, you may receive lots of information and messages but some of them serve to confuse more than illuminate.

The month begins with you researching and looking for a way forward, perhaps towards more financial independence or stability. Someone may be looking to you with both sadness and hope.

You may be planning a travel or speaking to lots of people by phone or on the internet. This may signify the end of a cycle or project. Or you’re looking for a new situation. You may also be learning a new language or system of symbols.

Your intuition is a little weak at this time. Some of the messages and impressions you receive may be misleading, especially those relating to the completion of a project or messages from abroad. Delays may be interpreted as the end of the road. Rest well and listen to music or dance to shift this energy and gain better insight.

By mid-February, you may decide to travel or to move for work reasons. Mentally, your fears are abating.

You’re very uncertain about your move or physical travel. You have high hopes, but prefer to not expect much as you don’t want to be disappointed. The same could be said for love and romance.

Your passions are high, but you’re more focussed on healing and recovery, as well as your financial health. Your energy levels could be down. You may often cry or have trouble breathing as you purge the old and prepare to move on. It’s a significant leave-taking.

Travel may be delayed, transportation may be a problem, especially during the turning of the moon’s phases. Be wary of pickpockets and other thieves whilst travelling.

Romance is delayed or a message of love fails to come through. But hope remains.

As February comes to an end, you will be feeling happier and surer of yourself. Hopes and dreams seem within reach once more.

You’ll feel more independent, especially financially, as the month ends. You may buy new clothes or little luxuries you have been waiting for since a while. Feeling safer and bolder, you’re more likely to ask for what you need from others.

You’re budgeting skills are good, but you may need to adjust plans later as there is still some uncertainty to your situation. Take care of your details well, and check your bank statements. You will feel comfortable and nurtured.

Your dreams will be significant for love and healing. Messages of love may reach you now.

Additional Insights

Birth reversed, Criticism reversed, Inheritance

Once the cycle or project ends at the start of the month, you’re unlikely to begin something new immediately. You may need a rest or a vacation, if not a total change of scene. It may also be difficult to conceive a child at this time.

Your work will be well received. You are more relaxed and less critical of others, especially family and of those following family traditions. But keep your eyes open, especially when travelling.

You may be thinking about family a lot, or what you’ve inherited from your family line. It’s a good time to heal family hurt and long-standing issues.

§

Scorpio

Some ideas could work out very well for you, but perhaps this may not be the best time to launch them. A family plan may not work out the way you expected.

As February begins, you may worry an idea: researching, refining and working away at it till all hours.

You feel it’s going to be the greatest thing since sliced bread. But it’s not yet ready for the world, no matter how much you’d like to think otherwise. It needs some refining, tweaking and perhaps a little more experimentation.

You may not be telling your family all your plans, keeping something a secret. It could a birthday surprise you’re planning or some other treat. You may want to make sure everyone is available on that date.

You’re looking and feeling good. You’re feeling nurtured and that life is good. Your relationship is good even though your beloved may be a little quieter than usual.

By Mid-February, your hopes and dreams may feel like they’re in tatters.

Perhaps a critique or review was a little too harsh. Competition could also be very fierce. Others may be further ahead than you in bringing out similar projects. Pay attention to the fine print and read all reports/critiques to the end. They may hold a goldmine of information that will solve a few nasty glitches for you.

Family ties are strong, and you may put a lot of effort into the surprise, especially if it’s an anniversary. You’ll get a lot of joy from all the preparation and planning.

February winds down on a slow note. Your project may be on hiatus or stalled for the present.

Concern, or an important event, regarding a child or a pet may delay a travel or trip. Perhaps it’s a school event, or an unexpected anxiety attack. Or perhaps your guests may be delayed by car problems or late trains. Your surprise may have to wait or be delayed too. Try to take it in your stride. The celebration will still happen.

You may need to have a long and honest discussion with your mother, partner or sister. Whatever’s bothering you needs to be said, and you’ll need to listen to them with understanding.

In work matters, you prefer to keep your own counsel and company, perhaps working through lunch-breaks and missing some of the talk. Don’t isolate yourself too much, or you could miss important need-to-know information.

Additional Insights

Concentration, Defence reversed, Exaltation reversed

Your concentration is excellent, allowing you to process information and find the appropriate response very quickly—even under stress or when very tired. Be careful, though, of tension headaches. Your concentration may also be a little too focussed at times. Step back and take a look at the bigger picture every now and again.

You may feel hurt and defenceless against criticism (both good and bad) or arguments you didn’t see coming, especially at work. You may need to be more vulnerable with your beloved. Ensure your internet protection is up to date.

Your surprise may not have the effect or response you’d envisioned, or the details may have faded by the time you get to it. Know there’s beauty in imperfection, and your efforts are appreciated.

§

Sagittarius

It’s a month of seeking: for spirituality and creativity—a new job or love, too.

As February begins, you may be feeling restless, or bored, tired of the same conversations with the same people who share the same ideas.

You may tune out those around you and seek your inspiration elsewhere; outdoors, perhaps, or within works of a spiritual or artistic nature. You may also take a period to rest, especially if you’re feeling run-down or have a problem with your foot.

New love, romantic or of a spiritual nature, arrives. This may help you find peace and an understanding of who you really are, and what you really seek. Insight may come through a conversation, a movie, or a book you read. It feels profound, but it is just the beginning.

You’re looking for more abundance in you life, but may feel disheartened or too uncertain of your power to do much about it.

Miscommunication or misunderstanding may cause a new project to fail, or be delayed around mid-month.

Support for the launch of a new product (or project) may be weak because of miscommunication or a misunderstanding. Ensure all public messages are well-spelt and clear in intention.

You may feel a lack of love. Couples may feel their partner is focused elsewhere or negligent. Singles may yearn for an equal partnership but feel unseen. Your feminine energy may need balancing. Try doing something creative or grow a plant—some indoor herbs, perhaps?

Others may not take note of your presence or your messages. You may have to follow up on communication more than usual. Perhaps your emails don’t carry the right tone, or your messages are not getting through the network. Check your status and settings, particularly on smartphones.

As February comes to an end, you may feel more at peace as delayed messages begin to arrive.

After a short rest, or a weekend away, delayed messages may start to reach you. While they may not bring many opportunities for more income, they may inspire you in other ways. There is confirmation of love, if your beloved is at a distance, as well as news of them travelling to you, perhaps.

Spiritually, you’ll enjoy meditation and receive many new insights, as well as an experience of bliss or a revelation about love. Your relationships, particularly with your mother and other females, will begin to make more sense to you.

You begin to see yourself in a new light, and may want others to see this, too. You may assert yourself more.

Additional Insights

Risk, Assertion, Drama

It’s a positive time for you. Your inner world may be vastly different from the external world.

You may be willing to take a chance on love, or in beginning a new project. However, you will have to overcome a shyness, or feelings of being unworthy in some way. Your financial acumen may also be good, but remember to do your research, too.

Towards the end of the month, you are more willing to assert yourself and risk others disagreeing with you, especially friends and favoured relatives. You may also have to intervene in some situations in order to save others in some way.

There may be lots of drama in the outer world or in your collective, but for the most part, you will maintain your balance and your composure. Others may not understand your calm and seek to move you by dramatic behaviour. You may choose to ignore them. You could also become overly engrossed in a TV show or other episodic media.

My Lotus FM Studio Visit

As you may know, most weekdays my tarotscopes go live on Cosmic Chat on Life&Style—the mid-morning Lotus FM show hosted by Zakia Ahmed. She’s been inviting me to get out of my comfort zone and into the studio ever since I began my stint back in late February this year. Not having my own car, getting to the SABC in central Durban is a problem.

On Tuesday, 28 November 2017, I finally got to the Lotus FM studios for the live broadcast of Cosmic Chat, thanks to my awesome Mum and Dad.

Cosmic Chat usually goes on between 11:40am-11:55am. I begin prepping at least 30mins before, in the quietest room I can find (except for one beautiful day when I took the call outside). Most days, KrsnaPriya, the show’s producer, calls me and holds me on the line just before Zakia is ready for Cosmic Chat, then off we go into Aries’ tarotscope for the following day. Thereafter, I do a quick mini-reading for one random caller, and often for the winner of Waxing Lyrical as well. And that’s it—my ten minutes or so on-air. It’s one of the most peaceful times of the day for me when I ground myself, giggle with my guides, hold the space for the listeners, and just chill till I get the call. It is very much my comfort-zone, and moving out of it for even just a day made me just a tad nervous. Still, exploring life outside a comfort-zone is always a good thing. And the fact that dad could get me to the studio that day seemed too good a chance to pass up for this curious writer. Though I’ve been in TV studios before as a student, I’ve never been in a live radio studio…

We arrived just before 11am and signed in. KrsnaPriya fetched us from reception and took us to the studio. With phones on silent we walked in while Zakia introduced a song. The studio is fairly large, neat and comfortable; not at all like the cramped space I’d envisioned when writing Settle Down Now.

The main guest for the show—a guru who’d just done a laughing therapy demo—was just leaving, along with the newsreader, Prabashni. Then it was hugs and hellos all around as Zakia took my hand and just stared at me for a moment. We’d been chatting on the phone for all of South Africa to hear for months now, but had never met before. I didn’t say much. What could I say to such a legendary host? In person, Zakia is more petite than I’d pictured, and with all the energy and good humour as comes across in her show. With Zakia, what you hear is what you get! KrsnaPriya’s humour and energy is a good match with Zakia’s. Being in studio with both of them was fun!

Time seemed to fly by as I began my prep, all the while trying to take in as many details for my writer-brain as possible. Mum and Dad sat close by, watching me prepare for the first time, as did Zakia and KrsnaPriya.

We chatted in bursts when the green studio light was on. The day’s spread was interesting, with two signs mirroring each other, which doesn’t happen too often.

Pravina Maharaj, my writer friend who also works at the SABC, dropped by to say hi. Another first in person meeting for us.

I got to see how Waxing Lyrical works from the studio side. We had a winner with a beautiful voice who gave her reading to her husband.

KrsnaPriya mentioned she’d stream the tarotscopes live on Facebook, and I tried not think about being on-camera, too. I’m much more comfortable behind the lens…

Ready to go

Time ticked on, I donned the surprisingly comfy earphones, and then Zakia was cueing me in just like she does every time.

My nervousness disappeared and it was Cosmic Chat as usual with me going into Aries. I didn’t even give much thought to KrsnaPriya filming as I read. With relief, I thought it was all going to be a normal read, but Zakia didn’t go onto Taurus, mentioning instead that she’d always imagined I’d been reading from notes each time. I do take mental notes while I’m prepping, but don’t rely on them in the final read as it often changes and time is limited. But it does make me more coherent—mostly 😀 I couldn’t really discuss it further as the messages for Taurus needed to go. And it was back to the tarotscopes.

Just when I thought it was all going well, I got all spacey and kind of lost the plot over Virgo, ruled by Mercury who was entering his retrograde phase. A sudden refocus and it was on to Libra. All went well again until Sagittarius. Trickster Mercury struck again. I didn’t notice I said Sagittarius again, even though I was reading Capricorn’s card, and the error continued through to Aquarius and Pisces! It had never happened before, and I didn’t even notice until I got home that evening! Ah well, my guides said, maybe those signs were sharing some energies, especially Capricorn and Aquarius…

With the tarotscopes over, Zakia asked me about the cards I was using, and then we took the random caller. Once the mini-read was done, we went to the waxing lyrical winner’s read, and then it was all over. I’d survived my first in-studio live broadcast! I’ve even been invited back. We’ll have to see. There’s both my comfort-zone and the transport to think about. Though I must admit, it does make a nice change…:-D

Tarotscopes November 2017–Bumper Romance Edition

#writerstarot

by Leenna

Everyone’s got something new and something old to deal with this month—new opportunities, old people or vice-versa. So, it seemed like a good idea to have another little look at romance. Check back to the last bumper edition for more insight.

* for entertainment purposes.

 

Scorpio

Balance those emotions and a sense of peace will spread to all areas of your life.

November begins with a need to seek balance, especially in communication and your mental processes. So, if you want your pitch to win over that of the most-annoying-guy-from-the-office, you need to find the right words—and images. And hold off on those jokes as it’s quite likely that the person you’re pitching to has no sense of humour (at least, not one they care to share). Go for clarity, eloquence and good strategy instead, both at work and at home too. And, as always, listen!

Mid-month brings a sense of renewal and good judgement, especially in family matters and spiritual ones. Emotions may run high, particularly with other water signs, so it’s up to you to keep the calm and peace. Unexpected events may cause sudden happy changes if you manage things right when it comes to romance, proposals and birthday plans.

The month comes to an end with a new sense of balance and peace. Great spiritual growth is possible at this time. You may want to study a new language in preparation of long travels next year. Most of your projects will be nearing completion, if they haven’t already, and you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment and joy.

Romance for singles: Not the best month to find love and romance at parties and socials as the object of your interest may prove to have a codependency on a substance, or could be obsessed with the need to hear wedding bells. Remain aloof until you get to know them better.

Romance for couples: It’s time to whisk your beloved away from the kids/family and go to a spa or on a romantic getaway. If the budget doesn’t stretch that far, pack a picnic basket (or a snack-pack) and take them for a romantic walk/hike/to the secret-spot-in-the-house (not the damp basement) and woo them like you did when you first met.

 

Sagittarius

A temptation from the past tests your zest and growth for the future.

The month begins on a playful note when new beginnings seem yours for the picking. The past is tempting you back (that sense of innocent and carefreeness) but you know that kind of life/love is no longer sustainable. Avoid moving backward; it doesn’t show you in your best light.

Mid-month brings some travel and a lot of passion. This could be a water-sign from your past, but do you really want to deal with all that drama again? Business or your career, too, could suffer if you don’t make the right decisions in love now. Concentrate on those new opportunities, and plan your trips with a firm eye on the future.

November comes to a close with what looks like a test for you. You’ll have to be stronger still and remain true to your beliefs and to yourself. Home-life may bring some discontent, or a relocation. Renovations may have you wishing you were somewhere else. Think outside the box and don’t allow your ego to make excuses for inaction. Now’s the time to act and step into your future.

Romance for singles: Call your friend Scorpio for a consolatory dinner, it’s not the best time for romance. There may be some time apart from the object of your affection. Or this could be a time when you need to get to know yourself better so you can better recognise who, and what, you need in love.

Romance for couples: If you’ve been feeling disconnected from your beloved, now is the time to do something to let them know how you feel (a wee talk might be a good starting point), or make new plans with them to show your commitment to your combined happiness.

 

Capricorn

Don’t doubt your decisions. You’re on the right track.

November begins on a stable note, allaying concerns about money and employment. You’ll feel centred and back in charge of yourself (and your life), allowing your natural good humour and affection to shine through again. You’ll also find help (legal or other advice) from a Gemini or Libran friend. Be sure to regard your own thoughts, and research, when making major decisions.

Mid-month looks a little dreamy, but well-grounded. You may receive an early bonus or other windfall which will help you achieve one of your long-term dreams—an island adventure, or a spiritual retreat, perhaps? There’s lots of spiritual gifts coming your way as well. Be sure to rest, journal, and allow yourself some quiet time to integrate and expand your energies.

November comes to an end with some intense mental activity, and perhaps a few sleepless nights. Don’t allow anxiety to rule over any recent decisions you’ve made. Allow yourself to build or plant something new. Let your creativity rule instead. It’s the perfect time to start baking some holiday treats 🙂

Romance for singles: There’s loads of passion from someone who wants to woo you off your feet. They may not be the best dancer (clumsy even) but they sure know how to treat you well, and enjoy food as much as you do. Try a little playfulness and see how well they pick up your non sequitur.

Romance for couples: Whatever you’re hoping for is likely to come to you very soon. So, be very careful what you wish for romantically as you’re sure to get it sooner than expected. This includes additions to the family or you wanting more ‘space’. Make sure it’s really what you want and need for this time of year.

 

Aquarius

Woohoo Aquarius! This is your love month calling! And whatever the weather, it will feel like the sun’s shining just for you.

November begins like a rom-com with a brand new love relationship or a refurbished current/old one which feels like new (you know what I mean). It could well be someone from your past, or even from a past-life (if it’s a new love) or renewed ties and appreciation of your beloved. But however you meet up again (after an hour or even a decade), prepare for some goofy goings-on. Let your confidence see you through, and be someone’s sunshine.

Mid-month may feel a little bit of a downer after your previous emotional high. Take a good look around and you’ll see your world in a new light. There’s major changes afoot with no time for regrets (but plenty of second chances). You have the resources to follow your heart this month.

The month comes to a close with some much needed travel—an early vacation to destress before the holidays? Karma will be your close friend, so think positive, be positive, and do good. There’s good coming to you too (and possibly a new commitment) so it’s time to leave guilt and self-doubt behind.

Romance for singles: Karmic ties and relationships are highlighted for most. There’s lessons to be learned and lots of love to give and receive. For some, you could be meeting ‘the only one—possibly from another culture or upbringing.

Romance for couples: You’ll be swept away, either by your partner’s passion or by your passion for your partner. Time to take that weekend or two away. You’ll also find inspiration for your creativity from your love relationship. Best of all, you’ll be brimming with happy, fuzzy energy 🙂

 

Pisces

New perceptions change your world for the better, if you allow yourself to see clearly.

Happiness comes from creative banter (and not a little flirting!) at the beginning of this month. You’ll be exchanging lucrative ideas with an air-sign who seems to match up to all your needs and expectations—and to find the cracks in your ideas and fix them, too. But before you go jumping the gun, hold on and strengthen those boundaries. This person may not have your best interests at heart. In business with them, dot your ‘i’s and cross your ‘t’s. Then let their trustworthiness be proven over time.

Mid-month looks like a row of dominoes teetering. First you may feel stuck on a merry-go-round with the same-old-same-old, then comes the realisation that the time was not right, but that the starting gun is about to go off. And then comes the new start and a knowing of your own power, which gets everything falling neatly into place. Find your centre, strive for balance, and exercise your power wisely.

Late November may see you walking away from something (or someone), but still very much in your power. All that you need (and more) comes to you, including a slew of admirers. While it may not be the perfect time for new relationships, it is for reconnecting with your children (including pets) and allowing your creativity to earn you a few more breaks.

Romance for singles: Spirituality plays an important part in your love-life this month. Some could meet their new love at church, temple, or philosophical meetings. Others may choose to concentrate on their own spiritual growth at this time instead of actively pursuing love. Either way, follow your intuition, so allowing your ability to experience great love to grow.

Romance of couples: It’s time to be strong. You or your partner needs to be more independent as your relationship may feel a little smothered by all the togetherness. It’s also a good time to address each others annoying or harmful habits. Try channelling some of your energies into creative and spiritual hobbies.

 

Aries

Take care of your health and your heart, especially when you’re setting difficult targets for yourself.

November begins with you feeling somewhat jaded or run-down. Take good care of your health, and if you’re feeling drained or are prone to fevers, do visit the doctor as soon as possible. Don’t push yourself to meet impossible deadlines of your own making. Rest and relaxation is what you most need at this time. Rather take it by choice instead of pushing the universe’s hand at this time.

Mid-November may not begin as the favourite time of your year, but it quickly changes into one! Unpredictability rules for a few days when anything could happen. Communication devices may take on a life of their own, so double-check your mail and back-up your important data. You’ll be learning new skills, one of which may become your new favourite ‘thing’. And there’s love and reunions towards the end of this period. If you’ve been apart from your beloved, you’ll be more than able to make up for it now.

November winds down with you hard at work or attempting to build your reputation. There’s lots of love and contentment, but if your partner’s an air-sign, they may be less than forgiving if you don’t make enough quality time for them. S,o set aside any new toys during your ‘special’ time. Else it’s the couch (or worse) for you in the foreseeable future.

Romance for singles: Trust issues may surface, making it hard for interested peeps to connect with you. If you’re not really looking for someone special that’s okay, but if you are, you’ll need to address these issues before you do. Remember, too, that if you’ve dealt with your issues, the person you’re interested in may still be dealing with theirs.

Romance for couples: Arguments about family traditions or bringing up children may cause some sulkiness or distance between you and your beloved. Compromise is called for, or at least a serious discussion where you both listen and speak frankly. Religion could also be a thorny issue this month, not just with your partner, but with friends as well. Avoid spiritual discussions in company to maintain harmony, even if you’ve had interesting discussions with the same groups/person before.

 

Taurus

Shake off any feelings of discontent. You’ll soon see the results of your choices and hard work.

Life begins to move in the direction you’d hoped for at the beginning of the month. You may have new transport or be travelling to a new destination. But there’s some discontent or a feeling that you should be doing something else. There may also be some concerns about your health or your mother’s/partner’s/sisters well-being. You may decide to take a new direction or relocate at this time. And if you’re awaiting an independent evaluation, it’s sure to be in your favour.

Mid-month sees the end of the feeling you’re being pulled in two directions. You find your carefree self emerging, possibly attracting new love or a new friend with it—one who reminds you of your younger self. While an old situation may not quite be done and dusted, it’s no longer a weight on your mind, allowing you to make better choices.

November winds down with you feeling uncertain over love or choices made earlier in the month/this quarter. Your fears will be allayed by a fire-sign or a creative person. Your sleep pattern will return to normal and you’ll find your emotional balance returning. If you didn’t give up on a love relationship, you’ll find the benefits now.

Romance for singles: Hanging out with your friends or allowing them to recommend new prospects to you will bring you the most luck in love this month. If work is overwhelming, ask for help, and this too could bring you the person of your dreams. Don’t try to go it alone this month.

Romance for couples: Family responsibilities may prove to be knotty. Unravel some time for you and your beloved to reconnect in a less stressful setting. Perhaps a gentle walk in the countryside or a riverboat cruise will be just the thing. Or a new class or course you would both enjoy—cooking/baking or painting…

 

Gemini

Standing still for now may lead to faster movement in the direction you wish to go.

What-ifs may be the bane of your life at the beginning of November, especially as it seems a small risk may allow you to pursue a long-held dream. With a lighter workload, or a smaller car, you may have the chance to scale back the energy-drainers and scale up the time you can spend on securing your happier future. Concentrate on the practicalities and the facts in front of you.

Your indecision or a stalemate could be just what’s needed around mid-month. Stalling, it may be, but with good effect. A better change, more suited to you, is right around the corner. Just don’t let the mental merry-go-round sweep the carpet out from under you. If you want to stay in one place for a little longer, you may have to temporarily jump to someone else’s tune.

November comes to a close on an emotional and fun note. You may be romanced by a brand new person (or an old-flame recently returned) but if something smells a little fishy to you, it probably is. It’s the perfect time for some fun and new beginnings, but only on your terms. Erase the what-ifs and follow that dream (or at least write it down). The universe may just show you an amazing short-cut.

Romance for singles: If public displays of affection are your thing, you may just find your match! An old childhood friend (or friend of a friend) may break out the mistletoe extra-early just for you. There’s a hint of mischievousness and playfulness that’s quite intoxicating. But for it to last into the new year, you and your beloved will have to do the relationship work.

Romance for couples: Rituals are a means of communication which your beloved reads carefully. Ensure you’re sending the right messages with your daily rituals—whether it’s the way you’re brushing your hair, or pouring milk into the cereal. And if you get a question out of left-field, don’t get defensive; remember it’s your change of daily rituals/actions which brought it on. Use this as a way to enable greater communication.

 

Cancer

A roller-coaster month of work and love brings out the crazy—and a really big decision.

Sleepless nights and anxiety should be things of the past as November begins. There’s new (or renewed love) bringing loads of inspiration and high-spirits just when you need them. Things are moving fast—both at work and in love. Expect declarations of passions from your beloved, and wild bursts of productivity at work. Things may be a little crazy, but worth all the effort,

Mid-November brings a total change of pace. A slow-down or total standstill allows you some much needed time to rest and take stock. Happiness stems from being with friends, family and your beloved, and may make for some great memories. Don’t be surprised if your new love (or renewed love) introduces you to their extended family or makes some other declaration or commitment.

November crawls to an end with you working or studying something new. If self-employed, you’ll be hard at work on new systems and securing new clients. Gemini’s may throw you off-track, either by declaring you a nemesis or by whisking you off on a romantic getaway. Either way, you may feel your life has once again thrown the crazy switch. Best to go with the flow if you can’t swim for safety.

Romance for singles: Oh dear, dear Cancer. There’s two ways this could go. Either you’ll feel you’ve met ‘the one’ or someone else will think you are ‘the one’. Problem is it’s all thinking on one side and all feeling on the other. In other words, take care as there may be an unrequited love triangle brewing—even if it’s with you, the other person and your pet dog. Someone may get very hurt if intentions and feelings aren’t made known from the very beginning.

Romance for couples: Your partner, especially if they are away or seldom get to spend much time with you, is missing you and all your little quirks—those small touches of colour and appreciation of life that you bring to their world. Keep doing what you’re doing and treat your partner to an afternoon of true romance.

 

Leo

If you’ve felt you’ve had the training wheels on, they’ll be off by the end of the month.

November begins on a wildly exciting note. For some, success in marriage or at home (winning all those ‘debates’?), and for others, a promotion at work or a new job. Whatever it is, be it your wit or your competence and creativity, it’s attracting all the right kind of attention—and invites too! Enjoy!

Mid-month may bring some fevers or low energy-levels. Carry those tissues and hankies, and make sure you’ve got your allergy meds with you. There’s a host of choices for you to make, too, but which idea to pursue can wait till the cotton-woolly feeling leaves your senses clear.

By month’s end, you may have to master something new—a program, a role, a new route to walk the dog…Whatever it is, you’re not loving it, and may in fact be struggling a little to adapt. Blame it on the slow-start at mid-month and know you’ll have it all down pat by the last day of the month. Use your logic and organisational abilities (not to mention, the d-word) to win through.

Romance for singles: An ex may return and ask for a second-chance. If your heart’s not in it from the beginning, why even go there? Though it may be difficult to be single at this time of year, it’s better than starting a relationship which sends out the wrong message to all the right people.

Romance for couples: You may be working hard to bring home the bacon, but sometimes all your beloved wants is a good vegan dinner… Simple, inexpensive pleasures keep your beloved happier just now. Quality time with you is worth more than gold.

 

Virgo

Love is strong on your mind and in your heart.

Love surrounds you this month as you say goodbye to the past. This shift within yourself radiates out to others, drawing in the same gentle, heart-felt love to you. Understanding and gentleness travel with you making for less drama. But you have something passionate to say to someone you love. It’s just not the right time for it.

Around mid-month, your schedule may lighten up enough for you to take a fun break. It may be to the sea, or to another watery environment (maybe a flotation tank) which leaves you well-rested and full of creative ideas. But you’ve still got your love-letter to re-write. No worries, you’ll get it right.

The travel theme continues till the end of the month when you may travel further to a forest or pristine area you’ve never visited before. It may remind you of your mother’s legacy in some way. Keep your sense of humour and allow your inspiration and connection to spirit to guide you safely on your path. If you’ve had difficulties with Librans or Geminis, you’ll find the secret to balance the situation now. In matters of the heart, know you’re on the right path.

Romance for singles: Community events and theatre may be where you find your next romance. A friend of a friend may be your next love as you’re looking for good references, not just good looks. Then again, the kind soul who helps you carry all your holiday parcels could also be the next to steal your heart.

Romance for couples: If you’ve been wondering about soul mates you’ll get your answers now. Your beloved may prove once again just why they are the only one for you. And if they are not, your soul mate may appear to you in dreams and other messages. But not all soul mates bring romance. And not all soul mates are human. The only thing soul mates ensure is that you have a lesson or two to learn in love.

 

Libra

A month of great changes and opportunities.

November begins by putting an end to a stagnant situation. A long delayed decision will be made, allowing you to manifest your greatest desires in terms of your career and finances. It may not be a perfect start, but you’ll be further up the ladder than you thought possible. Remember what team-work means, but don’t give your power away just to fit in. You are more valuable than you think.

There’s never a quiet moment around mid-month when a major change brings new friends, and great emotional and creative balance to you. Make sure to take the time to rest well, and be sure to drink plenty of water. You’ll be looking and feeling better than you have for a long time.

By month’s end you’ll may be wondering if all that effort was worth it. The work may just keep coming and you may wish you’d taken a longer break earlier in the year. If you aren’t earning as well as you think you should, you may still be in a probationary phase or may have to study an extra skill. Keep faith in yourself and your ideas. For a few, a concern about your mother may impact your work or prevent you attending a social, or delay you in some way. Though you may feel conflicted, ground yourself and stay true to who you really are.

Romance for singles: This month may have you believing you’re never going to meet someone special. Once more, you’ve got to keep the faith, hang up your hangups, and allow love to find you. With all the new goings-on, let your future partner do the work and find you.

Romance for couples: It’s time to enjoy your time together. Take a little trip together (or a big one!). Talk about all your dreams and plans for the future. Merge them together and let pure romance take over your life. Or, you know, just have a pajama-day together 🙂

Have a fab month!

P.S I’m having to re-start my draft of Your Tarotscope 2018 with a whole new section and more insights so it may be a little late like this post. Details coming soon 😀

Tarotscopes August 2017

#writerstarot

by Leenna

August looks like a mixed-bag for most of us, with many of us consolidating progress and on ideas made in June and July. For some, it’s still cosmic exam time, while for others it’s time to break glass-ceilings in both business and love.

*only for entertainment purposes.

 

Leo

Like good cheese, you’re maturing well, Leo.

August starts off on a beautiful note with a hope or dream within reach or being realised. This may be the time when you find new routes to cherished dreams or people. Your optimism will be high and your spirituality strong, especially when you are interacting with nature. The term ‘clear skies’ come to mind, allowing you to see further with understanding.

Your optimism matures into a greater commitment on an emotional or spiritual level come mid-month. Emotional reconciliation or renewed determination to stick to a person or plan finds you considering new never-before-thought-of paths. While this may seem scary, you’re a pioneer at heart (or with heart) so explore till your heart’s content.

August ends on a stable, less confusing note for you. While plans and ideas move or grow more slowly than you’d like, you’ll feel more grounded and content with your broad future plans/vision, a greater connection to your life-purpose and even a greater connection to your ancestors or a suppressed part of yourself.

 

Virgo

The month begins on a strait-laced note on the surface but has a definitely more fun-feeling under the surface.

Libras are significant in your life at the start of the month, bringing some insight with a touch of humour. While others may think of you as somewhat unforgiving over some aspects just now, your playfulness and compassion will pop-up at the most unexpected times. Expect puppy dogs and little kids to either cry at the sight of you or run after you in delight! Through it all, you’ll have clarity come to you at the oddest moments.

Mid-August may see you labelled as a lone-wolf at work or in other communities. Recognition may be hard to find or denied you by some. Ignore them and continue the good-work, unless you decide to go your own way. The abundance or monetary rewards you seek may be a little late in coming, so plan accordingly.

The month ends on a similar note for you as Leo. Long-term plans with most Leo’s would therefore work out well as you’ll be on the same page with the same concerns and understanding of each other’s problem-solving. Investment in mining may work out well for you, especially if you have the longer-terms in sight, a connection to the land being utilised, and a concern for the environmental impact and rehabilitation. Planting and reforestation will also make you happy and bring you internal peace. It’s all go with green, Virgo.

 

Libra

Choose paths wisely at the beginning at the month or lighten your social calendar to ease the strain on yourself.

August begins on a decisive note for you. You’re done being…vacillating. You’re done missing opportunities. And it is a great time for you to say ‘yes’ to the new more often—but in moderation, Libra. Choose one path and stick with it—at least for now:-D

More decisions come around mid-month, but at least this time, they’re more clear-cut, perhaps involving money or a business partnership. You may want to call on Virgo and ask for a play-date as their unexpected humour will bring out your own sense of humour and playfulness.

A busy, busy, end of month for you, perhaps even stressful. Too many ideas, too little optimism and maybe a little bit of paralysis caused by inaction/self-doubt. Or perhaps a series of late nights.  You’ll be needing extra sleep for sure.

Scorpio

Be wise and energise, Scorpio.

It’s a fertile period for you at the beginning of the month. Ideas, creations, and the means to ground them into reality are all yours for the asking and taking. Be kind (especially to Virgos who are your good-luck charms this month) and allow your warmth and generosity to surface once more. Friendships will grow stronger in this way.

Mid-August could bring some brushes with legal-eagles. Contracts will be fair (especially if you have your own eagle-eyes) and you’ll be beholden to promises just as much as your co-signatures. For those in love or considering marriage, be aware of the karmic forces at play and decide now if you’re in it for the long-haul, because this flight looks like a non-stop.

August ends on a lovely social and happy note for you. Whatever your mood, the fun and playful side of life is sure to keep tapping you on the shoulder like a game of tag. For those in New Zealand or visiting, a cultural show or art exhibition will inspire you and prove more life-enhancing than anticipated. Watch your alcohol intake and remember that the best kind of fun leaves you feeling better for days after, not worse.

Sagittarius

Fly high, Sagittarius. It’s time to feel alive again!

August begins on a hectic note for you. Delayed from June, you’ll be flooded by news, messages, loads of emails… Why not run off to the wilds for a day or two and let your soul build better filters for modern living. But don’t forget the bug-spray. Otherwise, it’s a passionate time for you, with maybe a holiday romance or a business deal/career move at a new location.

Mid-month finds you feeling vulnerable. Perhaps that romance is turning serious or you’d forgotten that bug-spray and are now paying the price or medical fee. Either way, you may feel off-balance or dizzy at the speed at which your life changed. Take heart and be easy on yourself. Adjustments take time. And every new experience or undertaking has a learning-curve.

You’re taking flight, most probably physically. If not, your ideas are doing it for you. Freedom comes with a price this time, and you may wonder if it’s perhaps too much. But stretching your wings is good for you, and it maybe that this is just what you need to get out of your mental and physical comfort-zone (unless you have a serious medical condition). When last did you feel so alive, Sagittarius? When last? Stretch those wings and go with the winds of change.

Capricorn

New spiritual seeking for you, and a small change at home.

August begins on a spiritual note for you. You may feel that there’s ‘more to life than this’ and start seeking new spiritual pathways or expressions of self. This may bring up some latent talents or gifts which may be of benefit to others around you.

Mid-month may bring what feels like a sulkiness when it looks like re-organisation of your home or other home-related plans may fall through or be delayed. Your spiritual/emotional quest may also be put on hold as you deal with more mundane issues and family needs. Some love relationships may feel a little stale and you may want to take a short vacation with your loved-one.

The month comes to an end with a busy, busy feel. Perhaps you’ve got the green-light on your home-related idea or plans and it’s all systems go. Try not to DIY all of it as it may be a too taxing on your time. Make time to play and relax in a natural beauty spot. It’s just the recharge you need! This is when your greatest insights will come to you. Take note!

Aquarius

August may echo an earlier part of the year. Consider this a cosmic test and don’t make the same mistakes twice!

The month begins with some hidden agendas. It may be yours, it may be others. But caution is advised, as is honesty—especially with yourself! It may be all too easy to convince yourself you’re ready for a new experience or job, and that you have all the resources you need to win through any situation. Others may call you out when you least expect it. For this part of the month, stick to what you know and what you’ve mastered.

Mid-August brings a short-term tightening of the budget. Part-time work or beginning your own business may also prove very challenging with the Mercury Retrograde affecting us for most the month. Do your research and your sums (this is not the time to let your money take care of itself) and make sensible plans. Work, or what feels like work, may make playtime and me-time scarce. Schedule a pj-day or two and feel better for it.

The month ends on an emotional note. You may feel far from your family and friends, or perhaps you’re finding it difficult to make trust-worthy new relationships. Your beloved may also be travelling or so busy that you hardly see them. Try painting or another artistic expression to lift your spirits and meet the kind of souls who speak to you just now.

 

Pisces

Weed out the worry and plant seeds of hope into your future.

August begins on a good stable note for you, allowing you to finally make some long-term plans.  Explore your child-like creativity to find more opportunities in work and in relationships.

Mid-August may bring a stern, difficult air-sign into your sphere. You may not share the same sense of humour, and it may be very easy to  misunderstand each other. Take the time to clarify your messages, double-check for errors and ensure you’re following the correct formats/procedures.

Late August brings a stuck-in-school feeling where you want nothing more than to go out and play, but work or studies prove too demanding. Celebrations may be put on hold as your workload grows heavy. Keep your focus, stay grounded and you’ll get through this all that quicker. Distractions, welcome though they may be, will only delay that overdue fun-time.

 Aries

Ooh, Aries! It’s a wonderfully good month for you in terms of love and partnerships.

The month begins with you a little preoccupied on future plans, but firmly in control. It’s a month for trying out new work systems and ensuring that structures in your life are firm and trust-worthy. You’ll be in demand for your skills, or recognised for your achievements. Just the kind of thing you love 😀

Mid-August brings in the lovey-dovey stuff or a wonderful new partnership in another area of your life, along with a whole lot of joy and reciprocal feeling. Either way, it looks like the start of a beautiful friendship. One or two of you may finally make a life-changing choice, so resolving a long-standing conflict in your life. Whatever your situation, go with the flow.

August ends on an uplifting note. Matters which seemed stranded, will float once more, and forward movement to calmer waters will be the result. You know what you want. You know what you need. Now watch as it all comes to you 😀

 

Taurus

August brings new beginnings in creativity, or new ways of communicating. Maybe even both!

The month begins with you in an upbeat mood which allows others to see your playful side. New opportunities will result, and you may be asked to solve some issues in an ingenious way. Don’t panic! Play with the problem and it will magically reveal its secrets to you.

Mid-month finds your social calendar full as everyone demands your amazing presence. Outdoor events will be your favourites, which may bring some new romance for those nights under the stars. Or perhaps, you’ll be meeting stars. Or even seeing stars (hopefully not for all the wrong reasons!). Whatever your starry-eyed situation, remember not to overlook the obvious, and don’t overspend.

August ends on a lower note as you realise where your fair-weather friends disappeared to, or find yourself out of pocket because of some overspending. Try not to pour energy into a situation out of sheer optimism. Ensure that you have some basis in fact to continue your involvement with certain people or contracts. Save your optimism for those projects and people closest to your heart, including some overlooked charities.

Gemini

Life begins again, Sleeping Beauty.

August begins with you in wonderful spirits as you catalogue all that you are grateful for—and there’s so many new wonderful developments to grow your list for the first nine days! Lucky, lucky gem that you are—everyone may now begin seeing you in the light that you wish to be seen—roughened edges or not!

Mid-month brings some much needed fun mental stimulation, perhaps in the form of a long-overdue trip. Whatever way you’re going, it’s a path unique to you which few others can follow you down. Time to revel in your mind, your ideas, and your clear way of looking at the world.

The month ends on with a jarring need to ground those earlier ideas. This may slow the pace you’ve set yourself, but it’s sorely needed to consolidate all that you’re building and to secure your achievements and those dreams which began coming true earlier in the month. Don’t lose yourself this time, bring things down to earth and stick to tangibles at month-end.

 

Cancer

As the month grows, so do you.

August begins with you having an itch to act or for movement, or just to do something…different! The cards say wait. Find your balance. Hold the ‘steady’ position for a tad longer so you don’t misstep on the ‘go’.

Mid-August sees you in a powerful position, self-confident and full of ideas. Others will consult with you, and the sky will be the limit in terms of your creativity and ability to influence others. Use this power wisely and to help benefit others too. And if you’re trying to catch someone special’s eye, they’ll be spellbound by you without you even trying!

August ends with you consolidating your position and setting up new systems or structures to allow for more stability and sustainability in your life. Recognition comes on all fronts. And if that special someone hasn’t approached you yet, they will now!

Tarotscopes June 2017 Bumper Edition!

#writerstarot

by Leenna

Wow! The cards are just jumping with Gemini’s energy and everyone’s excitement as we’re hitting the mid-year mark already, leaving behind all that heaviness and drama of April and May. And in celebration of my new Relationship/Soulmate Spread, I decided to do a bumper edition on Love and Relationships with some oracle cards and additional tarot packs.
So read your usual general reading first, then go onto the bonus Love/Relationship read for the rest of 2017. Enjoy!

*only for entertainment purposes.

Gemini

Love is in the air…especially by the end of the month!

To no-one’s surprise, Gemini, you’re starting off this month in two minds – one smitten and the other wanting to smite away all restrictions and other worries. You may have started a new job or have a new project you’re very excited about, but there’s some niggly little details you’ll have to sort out first and still find time for some rest. If you’re coding or pricing, you may have some redo’s for the first week of June.

Remember to blink often, drink lots of water (not caffeine) and prioritise sleep as you may be prone to colds/flus at this time.

Mid-month sees you sitting pretty as only you can, certain in your ideas, sure of your logic and keen-eyed to boot. It’s a good time for you to focus on home (buying/selling/renovating) and on other domestic matters too. There may be some delays regarding travel or those niggly little details may be taking a tad longer to straighten out than initially thought. It’s also a good time to study a part-time course online, especially short courses just for fun.

And then comes the fuzzy pink part of the month. Yep, there’s love around you. Self-love and quite possibly soul-mate or twin-flame love for those ready for it. You may be suddenly quiet on social media as you may prefer spending quality time with your beloved and learning just what a healthy, balanced loving relationship feels like.
For the singles or not-looking, there’s still the self-love, and the releasing of some old habits or toxic frenemies who finally show their true colours. Still, you may be working on a precious new project and will also be hard to find online. Enjoy!

Gemini’s Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

You’ll form great partnerships with Virgo/Leo or creative and down to earth types.

Love flips over catching you like a sheet on a line on a windy day, or maybe all your fine talk and airy ways has your love wound your little finger. Whichever, your love-life is no longer on hold, your dirty laundry no longer exists and you’ve got that fresh, clear go-ahead to take the next careful step. Don’t worry, you’ll have all the support and help you need as your love will meet you half way 😀

Convention comes into play this month – to be conventional or not be, that is the question? Every couple/partnership is unique, so no advice here except to discuss things well with your spouse/partner/new love and know that not everyone cares for straight lines.

Advice and help comes from Leo/Sagittarius and the odd Aries (yep, your bestie ones). They’ll have just the energy you need to help your projects lift off the ground and the sense of humour to laugh with you when things take an unexpected turn in either direction. They’ll also keep you focused and will take the long-term approach to business and other stability matters.

Looks like an awesome second-half of 2017 for you!

 

Cancer

Decisions, more decisions, and new contracts offer more than you thought. And some lucky Cancer may receive a proposal from that Gemini above!

The month begins with you looking beautiful and creating beauty around you, or even healing. Just the time to start a new art class or renew your wardrobe. A Gemini may return to you or leave for a time. If they are returning, it’s with an offer of love or in business, and if it’s them going, it’s to ‘find themselves’. Or perhaps they’ve found you now that you’ve ‘found’ yourself. Either way, you have much to contemplate after some fine, fun talk and reminiscing.

Mid-month brings either a multitude of decisions or one major-life changing one. For some, it’s easy to decide, but the implementation of the decision may bring some hesitation or self-doubt.

Stick your tongue out at self-doubt and go with the decision that tugs at your heart and sense of adventure.

Work goes well and brings in extra cash, not that you’ll be paying much attention to it all as you’ll be squarely focused on your next new adventure or recent proposal.

June slows down as it draws to an end. Financial matters go well, and if it things didn’t work out with Gemini, a steady Taurus/Virgo or even Capricorn, will be making you similar offers or finding the best way to invest your newly minted cash. At the end of June you may feel a little more clarity is needed before you can implement those decisions for change in your life, but by the last two or three days of the month, you’ll be full of verve and sunshine, ready to launch your ideas or follow your love into never before explored territory.

Cancer’s Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

Wow! You just can’t escape all the passion!

Any lethargy or body/health issues will be swept, washed and buffed away within the next 6-8 weeks. You’ll be able to share your passions and be adored for it both in the home and out. Your friends will want to be you, strangers will claim they know you, and even the dog/cat will be demanding their share of you. Now’s the time to apply for any 15-Minutes Of Fame you can think of! And your partner will be the first to hold your hand, clap the loudest, and beam proudly up at you.

Exaltation is the theme for you, not just in your career/public life, but in love to. You’ll shower your love with luxuries and attention, cocooning both of you in your own little cozy world. But it’s not all chocolate and roses. Your love will ascend to higher levels in spiritual and sublime ways. Expect the unexpected in expression of love (Could a love song be written just for you?) and let the little things delight you as much as the bling.

The advice is to rule your passion and not let it rule you! Don’t let third-parties interfere with your partnerships, especially younger ones who claim you’ve charmed them. Take the time to double-check your work and keep your temper in check at meetings and when dealing with fire-signs. But, most of all, remember that even Superwoman needs help. Don’t overwhelm yourself or you’ll feel too stressed to enjoy your fame and exalted love. Seriously, your cup is set to overflow and you know how you hate waste, so set your schedules well.

 

Leo

Juggle, juggle, contract doubled? What a busy bee you’re set to be this month!

The month starts off on a fun playful note. You may kid around and suddenly find your ideas taken seriously, with “I love it! Let’s do it!” So be careful what you suggest to your boss or beloved if you’re looking for a nice quiet June. Children or a fun new hobby may also throw your world into a spin, and so begins the juggle. Some may decide to let a part-time job go for the next few months.

Mid-June may find you looking at new residences or even considering moving abroad or cross-country. New ideas begin the rounds and all that’s missing in your life is a new skill or two. No worries, you’ll get the hang of them soon enough.

The month ends on a high, if unstable note.

Luck clings to you in the most surprising way, and that idea you were kidding about takes off better than expected.

It will be hard for you to get out of the office though, and balancing your life with finesse may seem like just a pipe dream. Make hay while the sun shines, but pray for the odd rainy day so you can rest well too.

Leo’s Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

Hmm…a bit of a hectic time, but steady friendships and affection will see you through.

So, Leo, you can’t read your partner’s mind any more. No worries, you’re just as much an enigma to them too. But, and this is a big but, you need to kick-start that intuition of yours to keep your partnerships strong and healthy. And pretending that nothing has changed isn’t doing either of you any good. So have that big talk soon and sleep more peacefully.

Friendships play a bigger role for the rest of the year, with some cool new friends being made, some old friends returning and your friendship with your beloved getting you through any rough relationship bits. But, and this is a big but, don’t trust your intuition on what you share with whom. Know that some strong friendships have no place outside the pub and others no place outside work, and so forth. Respect other’s boundaries and establish the ‘rules’ of your friendships (especially with those your partner might get jealous of) early in your friendship – and stick to them.

Your advice is to hang back until early July with your financial and promotional plans. In other words, launch new endeavours between July and September for best results. Self-discipline (yes, Leo, I mean you!) and attention to detail will be needed to reach those heights which are now within your grasp. Make them part of your daily routine and you’ll find it so much easier to meet all your commitments and find that balance you’ll be craving.

 

Virgo

Some stormy communication clears to reveal bright sun and much love!

June begins with some miscommunication or a failure to see eye to eye on a creative difference, possibly with a Sagittarius/Leo/Aries. You may decide to cut loose from the situation or agree to disagree.

Once that is done, you’ll have that freedom you’ve been craving and will celebrate like it’s 1999 (or is that 2009? Or could it be both?). Whatever, you’ll have a blast and meet some old friends, and make some new ones too.

Mid-month brings some all-sorts into the mix. Communication problems, this time with devices or network communications, may have you anxious over news about your mother or your beloved. Use the downtime from social media and ‘being connected’ to reconnect with yourself and find your internal balance and compass again. Remember to be compassionate with yourself as you clear out the last of your issues regarding fitting in and feeling left out in the cold, as it were. If you’re finding your budget needs stretching, it will stretch further than you think — as long as you’re not buying all the drinks for your friends.

The month ends on a lovely note! Despite a tight budget (or because of it) you may meet the next love of your life or discover it (if it’s a hobby or vocation). Yep, those clouds really do have a shiny lining for you this month and scare away those fair-weather friends. Love wafts in no matter your place or circumstance, bringing in that breath of freshness to everything. So, be yourself (that’s who they are interested in) and you’ll be winning hearts and reaping joy by the end of the month.

Virgo’s Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

You no longer need to feel like a bug pinned down. It’s time to be your best friend, and spread your wings and fly.

Take a minute and look around you – all around you. See all those things weighing you down, all those things tying you down? Who insisted they be just so? Who insisted it had to be so? Yep, you! Time to lighten up, give yourself some wriggle room and go out and play. Spend more time with the kids and spouse instead of the paperwork. Spend more time on sport or hobbies instead of polishing the car. Spend more time on…whatever takes your fancy and is fun!

Intuition is a good guide for you over the next few months. Use it often and wisely. Your BS-meter will be working accurately and overtime — especially when it comes to sales, emotions and intangibles. Trust it and use your insights wisely. Some may decide to study another religion or culture, or take a retreat during the next few months – some alone and others with their partners.

The advice is to notice who reciprocates your efforts, love and time. Share with them and allow them to share with you too. Explore your creative and passionate side and stop making excuses for not allowing change. It’s time now to face your future and decide how you want to meet it. Indecision isn’t as much fun as it used to be.

 

Libra

A deceptively slow start to the month hides rapidly changing situations – just the way you like!

Meeting up with friends may prove hard at the start of the month as love and romance will be high on your priority list, as will work and finding new opportunities for work. One situation ends, leaving you feeling uncertain of your future, but fear not as most situations this month will prove temporary for you.

Mid-June is perfect for reuniting with your love or loved ones, if you’ve been travelling. For the most part, you’ll prefer to be closeted away with your love and family – quality time being your motto for the month.

Life will stop seeming such a struggle and you’ll be able to relax. Any disagreements will also be sorted out, especially with fathers and fire-signs.

The month ends with you intuition strong. Passion is strong between you and your beloved, but some conflict with family mar some gatherings, especially around the full moon. Don’t allow jealousy to ruin your happiness and sense of joy, especially if the green-eyed monster is hiding in close friends and family. Allow your intuition to guide you and listen to your dreams. If single, you’ll dream often of your soul-mate/twin-flame.

Libra’s Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

Taking things slow for the next few months will bring easier change and more stability.

While you want to rush off full tilt, remember that’s how you fall off your horse, especially in matters of love and partnerships. You’ll work well with Leos and Cancerians, as well as with earth-signs, especially if you’ve worked with them before. They’ll help keep you grounded without snuffing out any flames of passion or enthusiasm.

Friendships help you stay focused on the simpler things that bring you joy. Allow relationships to develop at their own pace and share your unique view of the world with those you know will appreciate it. Real friends will reciprocate and open your eyes to more wonders of the world. For some, friendships may deepen into love or vice-versa.

Your advice is to be creative and a team-player. Allow change to flow naturally. While stability and material things may seem unstable, this is the nature of change. Positive change should be your key word, and so is collaboration for greater abundance and love. Your relationship is healthy and resilient with your strong friendship and, no amount of physical or material instability will change that fact unless you wish it so.

 

Scorpio

This is your universal examinations month – don’t fall into your old ways of thinking and doing.

June starts off wonderfully well for you. You have balance, you have the potential offer to realise a dream, and there’s so much inspiration and creativity around you. Ground those ideas, accept help and keep your eye on the ball.

Mid-month proves a little slippery. Good things do happen to people all the time and now it’s yours. Don’t allow negative thinking and self-doubt to push all the positive energy and love away. The sooner you decide to listen to your heart instead of others, the sooner you decide to do what you love, the sooner you can discern what you’d like to fill your cup and reach out for it. It’s already waiting for you, why delay?

The month comes to a close with some circular thoughts and possible restless nights. Write things down on paper, put the electronic screens away an hour before bedtime and allow yourself to relax. Allow you energy levels to build naturally by avoiding excess sugar and you should sleep much better too. There’s a big surprise at the end of the month which will be your universal pass-mark. You can’t swat for this one, you just have to put all you’ve learnt to good use and expect the best.

Scorpio’s Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

The bickering comes to an end!

Finally, Scorpio, the end of all that bickering around the home is in sight, mostly because you’ve decided to be more practical. Flirting with your beloved may safely begin again, and your energy levels will begin to pick up as soon as the last of the DIY and clean-up is done or that last appliance is replaced. Home and your love-life grows happier, for singles too.

Practicality is called for, especially in late August and early September. Don’t put the cart before the horse in any matter, especially when it comes to family and land matters. Take the slow and steady approach. And if you’re thinking about getting married yet again (yes, this is for one (or two) very specific readers) you may want to delay that thought for the next ten months at least – just saying.

The advice is to prioritise family happiness. Trust your partner. Speak about what you need instead of assuming others can read your deep mind. Be honest, even you sometimes don’t really know what you want, so take some time to discover what this may be with your partner.
Realise that timing is important. Be patient. Allow the slow time to be your spiritual growth time and realise what you really seek may already be all around you or within you.

 

Sagittarius

It looks like a hurry up and wait type of situation developing – all for the better to reconnect with your true-love!

June begins with a rush of movement and travel, possibly to really big cities with lots of cabs/taxis and going about roundabouts… You may be signing lots of contracts, so work, business and other legal matters are all looking good, especially with Cancerians involved or the month of July. Or you may be buying a new vehicle before June is half over. Make it red or blue and you’re sure to have more fun in it.

And then comes the slowing down. By mid-month you may be wondering what the whole sense of urgency was about or missing it. Finances may need a little stretching and your friends are less fun than before. You want to plan long-term. You feel more mature, but your current social circle seem stuck in the past. Never fear, your love is happy to hear your May Be plans, and if you’re single, true love make be striding straight towards you 😀

June winds down with a some juggle, or the end of struggle, but not a struggle to juggle – especially finances.

If you’ve been waiting on a contract, it’s likely to seal you in for a two year period, and possibly reintroduce you to someone or someones from your past. But you’re not moving or looking backwards and if you re-enter a relationship from the past, this time it’s for keeps. So whether it’s ‘Hi!’ or ‘Bye!’ to loves and friends, you really mean it this time.

Sagittarius’ Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

Wow, Sag it looks like you’re finally considering taking that big step involving the dreaded C- or M-word, making for happy love and partnerships.

But (why is there always a but with you, Sag) you’re…hmm…hesitating. You know what you want and what you don’t want. Or rather who you want and who you definitely don’t want, so why the procrastination? Give yourself no more than seven weeks to act or you’ll find the one that you want has given up on you for someone who picks what they choose, if you see what I mean. Then again, you could always do a Lochinvar (the Walter Scott one), but only if they’ll have you back.

Riches and their appreciation are on your mind for the rest of 2017. Is this why the procrastination? Are you feathering the nest for a your beloved, or enjoying the richness of your life before sharing it? Don’t forget the riches moments in life often come without a price-tag or buy-now-pay-later option, featuring instead laughter, nature and pink, fuzzy feelings (or is that candyfloss?). Work together with your partner and you both will have all you could possibly want sooner than you think.

The advice applauds your lack of procrastination. If your rival in love is a Virgo, don’t compete with them on the material/physical level. Use your knowledge and charm to engage your love on another higher level. Know that you have everything you need to make the right choice, follow through and live happily (for at least a long time) after. Don’t doubt yourself now, Sag, it’s very unbecoming in you – just saying.

 

Capricorn

A month of fits and starts brings some surprises and more creativity – possibly even a little romance or flirtation!

June begins on a heavy note, perhaps with you reconsidering obligations, contracts and partnerships. Support from those you love is there, and so is the possibility of a new love. But don’t take on more than you can chew for now. Take that step back when volunteers are called for ;-D

Mid-June sees lots of travelling, to-ing and fro-ing and the feeling that you’re just not getting anywhere! Too many ideas on the boil at the same time may scatter your energies. There may also be some vital research you’re missing.

So get back to basics, reschedule one or two things for July and start reading those manuals. You’ll soon find yourself back in the zone.

The month comes to an end with a note of triumph. Finances look good and while you may miss a social function or two, you have a brand new idea or a brand new love to keep you company. For some this may be a flirtation at work, and for others a new hobby like flying kites or something else you’ve always wanted to do but never got around to. There’s no time like the present to gift yourself some joy 🙂

Capricorn’s Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

Perfect timing is all yours for now. You can catch that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

Your intuition is high and true for the next six months. You’ll anticipate your love’s needs and reactions and win them all over again with sweet gentleness. Your relationships grow deeper and more spiritual while mysteries reveal themselves, mostly to your delight!

Lack of Choice may seem like a bad thing, but when your mind’s made up, does it really matter? You’ve only ever had eyes for one, and now they do for you too! No matter the weather or the situation you know you can count on each other. In your universe, that’s a state of bliss. What more can I say?

The advice is to keep doing what you’re doing! Family and domesticity bring you happiness and joy. Your hard work and keen practicality turns lead into gold, and with a little pushing, you’re moving faster than expected. So keep pushing for your dreams. They’re just around the corner:-)

 

Aquarius

Look a little closer. Things are getting better!

June may start off on a flat note with one of your new projects experiencing a failure to launch. Admit it wasn’t your best or most practical idea and get back to the drawing board. There’s still you much you have to learn, and with a little more time, understanding and experience, Version 2 may be all that you’ve dreamed of.

Mid-June brings the end to a stressful situation, and a bundle of cash. Be wise, economise with both your time and money and you’ll be well set for the next few months.

Watch your back and don’t overburden yourself if you’re moving furniture or doing intricate handwork, Perhaps a gentle new exercise routine is needed.

The month winds down with a sense that there are still a few threads that need tying up before you move into a new situation. Be calm and logical, and let’s not forget — fair, in your dealings. A new offer may come from the far north or from a Northerner, and while it’s tempting, look carefully at the small print and know what you’re getting into. An offer of love may come too, from someone older than you and light of heart.

Aquarius’s Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

While you’ll have to keep on your toes, it’s a good time to seal partnerships and be a rock for your partner.

Sincerity about love and relationships, especially regarding family or your past loves, may have you in a reflective mood for much of the time. Where do you fit in? Which relationships need nurturing and how to go about it? And: Do you really know yourself? These deep questions need answering for you to find your mojo again. The sooner you begin seeking these answers, the sooner you can be the real you!

Caution and discretion should be your watchwords in partnerships. While some may be tempted by a flirtation (or dalliance with a younger person), sincerity of both parties should be questioned. There’s no point in distracting yourself from yourself if it’s only going to worsen and delay the very situation you won’t look in the eye. Your partner may also experience a bout of illness at this time. Keep their spirits up with your playfulness.

Your advice is to seek stability. Question your judgement or delay judgements until you can review the facts and emotions dispassionately. Be objective and avoid being impetuous or aggressive. Consider giving your time to some charity or volunteer organisation. New people and ways of being will help you see your own situation and self objectively.

Keep the faith, Aquarius. It’s a tough year for you, and next year is bound to be better with all that you’re learning about yourself 🙂

 

Pisces

An uncertain start to the month settles down into a new happiness by the end of it 🙂

June starts with some changes to plans, especially social meet-ups. There may be some gossip which tarnishes a perception of your dreams or your dream-lover.

True friends will be revealed and frenemies will be exposed. Stick some Katy Perry on your playlist and sing along to erase the bad vibes.

Mid-month may bring a new mentor (or study group) into your life and Taureans prove to be good counsellors. You may decide to part-ways with some friends, or even your current home, when you go seeking new pastures and like-minded people. For those of you who feel your ships aren’t even on the horizon, never-mind coming home, it may be time to cut your losses and seek a new way forward.

The month ends on a sexy note with your current love or a new one from your study group. Keep your feet on the ground and try to be realistic. It’s hard to say if this will last (there’s good potential, less stability), but it’s making you happy for now. Family matters go well, and if you’ve been seeking that new home, you’ll find a dreamy one by seeking further afield and being more realistic.
And if you’re hoping for firm commitments or marriage, it’s right in front of you:-)

Pisces’ Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

You’re looking for less convention in your relationships and more emotions and passion. Still, you want all terms and conditions laid out in black and white from the word go.

So you’ve taken off the rose-tinted glasses and are willing to let your previous ideas of perfection and happiness in love be revamped, but…it’s all a little confusing as to what you should do next, or even want next. Now that you’ve banished the script, so to speak, you’re not quite sure that you can wing it. Ask your partner or best friend to be your wingman/woman and see what happens after August.

Friendship plays an important role in keeping you grounded, especially in new relationships or new phases of relationships. Remember, you can share more than passion. Avoid competition (or beat your competition) by emphasising your friendship first.

Your advice is to seek trustworthy relationships – both in friendships and in love. Allow family and friends to help you find dates (if single) or to house-sit/babysit if you need a get-away with your partner. While passion is great, too much leaves you feeling distraught. Balance it with a strong emotional connection and sincere affection, and you’ll have all the assurances you need to feel loved and appreciated.

 

Aries

Finances start to look up even though you may have to justify your work to others. While not the month to make your dreams come true, mid-year is loaded with love and creativity.

June begins with a sense of contentment. Art, beauty and water-signs make your day while Taureans and teachers lend practical support. If you’ve been offered a new job, it may take longer than expected to work your notice period out. Other obstacles may also prove frustrating, but should shift towards the third week of June.

Mid-month proves a mixed bag. Good news about money and debts paid off, but your cherished dream may still be on hold for now, especially if it involves children or a childhood dream.

On the bright side, a never-ending flow of ideas keeps you busy and entertains your partner. Some may also get news from a secret admirer!

The month winds down with some delays in travel. Double-check the car, the flights and bus time-tables. Trains, though, should be running on time. You may find yourself having to justify your work or ideas to a group of people. While it’s easy to become overly defensive, notice that only one of two people are determined in undermining you. Keep calm and think before responding. Stay off social media if you find yourself enraged by those one or two. There’s no point in stooping to other’s levels when you own is so much higher than theirs. Family time is fill of joy and happiness, and in some ways it almost feels like Christmas! Perhaps you’re preparing a Christmas in July? Enjoy!

Aries’ Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

Well, someone wants a baby or a new start? Either is possible as long as you take your time.

A new stable start is possible, or you may get a tangible offer which leaves you feeling very secure about someone’s feelings or regard for you. Not that you haven’t worked hard for it, but there is still a little more spit and polish you need to add before you can relax and enjoy the new situation.

The Birth of the new is firmly in your mind. Whether a physical birth or a rebirth of feelings, from July onward you will see signs of it in yourself, your partner, or your relationships. It’s also possible for you to re-invent yourself now, if you so wish. Ideas flow fast and develop even faster, so note them down carefully.

Be like Taurus – take things slow and steady. Work by yourself to set right the things that annoy you and you’ll see your world change quicker. Don’t allow the distractions of June to carry through into July and beyond. Be a little enigmatic to ignite the spark with your partner again. And enjoy July and beyond when you can start racing towards your dreams. Just don’t trip over your feet. Slow and steady with appropriate acceleration saves you energy and gets you further.

 

Taurus

Travel allows you to master a skill, but may bring in some conflict with family and old friends.

June begins with travel to a warm country or place, and most likely with a Leo companion. There’s passion and reunions, and maybe the odd quarrel or two. Perhaps you’re travelling to a class reunion or meeting old mates on holiday.

Be strong, acknowledge your power. You’ve changed and matured so much since you last were in such company.

Mid-month may find you on an advanced course or practising a skill you’d half-forgotten. Perhaps it’s riding a bicycle. You’ll be up to speed in no time. There’s good news coming, possibly from that Leo friend, offering you more opportunities. You may also begin reviewing your beliefs and limitations, or choose an unconventional way of life.

The month comes to an end with some tension with family, especially regarding finances, your choices and theirs. Some may feel constricted or manipulated towards a path not their own. Make sure you step on the path of your own choosing to ensure your future happiness. By the end of June, you may find yourself in uncharted territory, experiencing life like never before!

Taurus’ Love and Partnership themes for the rest of 2017

The worst is over, but lingering concerns over security still worry you. Your focus may shift from the physical to the spiritual or vice-versa.

Misunderstandings and fighting to have your feelings validated are now over. There’s just one little thorn on your side still to deal with, and this should be gone with a month or three. That said, don’t needle your partner. They may still be a little sore from one of your arguments from earlier in the year. Let the wounds heal before making tactless jokes.

Concentration, or the lack of it, takes you by surprise. You might find yourself distracted from work by thoughts of your love. You may also find yourself fantasising about them at odd moments. It’s time to let your playful side rule when with your partner. Perhaps they are just as distracted by thoughts of you!

Your advice is to be more playful. Share yourself more with your partner or allow them into your quiet time. Maybe you could both practice meditation together or share an exercise routine. Make short-term fun or even silly plans together. Go and catch a shooting star, but watch out for the mermaids! And while you’re at it, let the playfulness feed your spirituality and watch your sense of the unfulfilled fade.

And if you’d like to win 1 of 2 Relationship/Soulmate Divinations with me, then be sure to enter my giveaway Sunday, 4 June 2017 at the Africa Online Book Fair on Facebook. Check my FB page for all the details. 

Happy, romantic June to you!

Tarotscopes May 2017

Finally! Some relief and let up from the stress and demands of the first part of the year. Progress is seen by most, and certainly, there’s more lightness to May than in previous months. But many will still be busy with lots still demanding attention. Remember to smile more often and share the good news to keep the positivity going. There’ll be less to worry about and your work will be done that much sooner 🙂

The trend this month seems to be in love and commitments. Many are looking to formalize, or taking the first steps in formalizing, love relationships or business partnerships. Others may be stressing about not being in a romantic relationship or that they’re running out of time to win the heart they most wish to be with. Make sure you’re rushing things for the right reasons.

*only for entertainment purposes.

 

Taurus

A month of new understanding and moving into change confidently.

Your birthday month begins with you finding a confidence in yourself you might have forgotten about. You feel happy and contented in your role in life, and may begin a new course of study or teach one yourself. Music is important and don’t be surprised if you find yourself singing happily along to the radio, or even joining a choir or other music group. Your energy is happy and lighthearted. Sing on!

Mid-May could bring a new love (maybe with a Cancer/Pisces/Scorpio) or more tender moments with your beloved. You’ll feel beautiful and attractive. Your creativity will be high, and you’ll be more than happy to be the centrer of attention at social gatherings. Everything you need to look and feel fabulous will be at your fingertips!

The month ends with a sense of slowing down. Your new lessons or interest will bring new perspectives or skills you’ll want to perfect. Conversations will drawn you in deeply and then you’ll spend much time in contemplation. You’ll be re-learning things, and finding new colors and angles entering your life. How cool is that?

 

Gemini

Restrictions may frustrate at first, but your knowledge will win the day.

May begins with you overly concerned with material wants and needs. Don’t let this alienate you from those that are closest to you. Some may be trying to break free from a habit or circumstance. Admit any self-deception and change your focus or train of thought. Sometimes we forget to look up and see the beauty of the sky and realize that there are more worthwhile things in this world that we thought possible. Besides, looking up allows your neck to stretch and you to see further 😀

Mid-May sees you recognized for your work or talent. You may do better than expected in an exam, or enjoy reading something new more than you thought you would. You may also be asked to speak in public about your experiences or specialties. Keep your feet on the ground and don’t let it all go to your head by trying too hard. You’ve already made the right impression.

The month comes to an end with you thinking of studying further, or returning to school. Formal structures (both physical and metaphysical) will intrigue you. Music will also be important to you at this time. Songs may have special significance for you, or remind you of your someone special. Some may decide to make further commitments, either in love or to their communities. A sobering thought, but a worthwhile one!

 

Cancer

A very sociable time with lots of new movement or people in your life.

The month begins with events happening at a breakneck speed. Exciting new projects and people sweep into your life, some offering love and others adventure. Keep calm, remember your objectives and your integrity to keep your balance and win through. Take good care of your feet and ankles and be sure of the ground you walk on, (yes metaphorically too) and especially when hiking.

Ideas, ideas and more ideas bombard you around mid-month. Fortunately, you may have an air-sign to help you sift through them, or you may quickly find a way to manage them yourself. Research is the key to making your best decisions around this time, and so is accepting the truth in the manner it’s delivered. Help is available from a host of friends should you need it.

Towards the end of May, you’ll waver between clarity and confusion. What was hidden may be revealed, but it may seem so incredible that you may not wish to believe it. Don’t allow others to spin their dreams around you unless you are fully aware of, and welcoming, of those same dreams. Keep your feet on the ground and rely on your practical side. Test the ground – yes, metaphorically too.

 

Leo

A month of some extremes.

The month begins with some restlessness or boredom. You’re itching to get going on one project, and perhaps ignoring another which will reward you much sooner. There may also be some sadness around love. Don’t let this blind you to the affection and support all around you.

Mid-month sees your compassionate side taking over, and you may offer assistance to a charitable cause, or be more sensitive than usual. Take your tissues to the movies. If you’re looking for love, a striking water- or air-sign may catch your eye at that charitable event or that movie. Perhaps you can offer them a tissue, too.

May comes to an end with a sense of too much going on. All boredom and restless is erased with you having to juggle more than one project or aspects of life. You may also find yourself with the shiny object syndrome. Stick to your tasks and your schedules, and let shiny objects take care of themselves. Ooh…! Don’t look! Don’t look!

 

Virgo

More stability may bring more love or some much needed fun.

The month begins with recognition of your worth, both from yourself and from others. There is a sense of abundance and a feeling of contentment with what you’ve achieved so far. You realize you’re on track to your goals, even if you moved the goalposts!

Mid-may brings much love and joy. There’s new love or a new phase in love, and there might be a new home situation too (a baby for some). Many may feel true self-love for the first time, and so allow for soul-mate or twin-flame experiences to enter their lives. Others may find wonderful new hobbies or a renewed zest for life.

May ends on a celebratory mood. Going out with friends bring lots of fun, and even time alone can feel celebratory in nature. Allow yourself some of the good life and know that it will get better. And better…and better…

 

Libra

New contracts and honors are likely to find their way to you, along with teamwork and partnerships.

You may receive an offer of love (or renewed love) early this month, possibly from your soul-mate. Others will be depending on your reliability and creativity, especially for volunteer projects. Good advice is available should you wish it.

Mid-May brings more passion in love and greater creativity. You’ll have lots of charisma. The outdoors will draw you, and you may decide to try a new sport. You may begin a new collaboration with a fire-sign, or find that projects begun in late March and April are progressing well.

May comes to an end with the same energy and charisma flowing strong. It’s an intense time for you. While there may be the odd clash over creative ideas or positions held in teamwork or sport, for the most part you’ll enjoy working with others, and the greater creativity this will lead to. Love looks incredibly passionate and fast-moving. If you’ve been waiting for an adventurous, exciting relationship, you may well get your wish!

 

Scorpio

Major changes this month, especially regarding family and love.

May begins with you feeling back in control of your life, with much of the debris from the past few months now cleared. Issues with your father, or a dominant partner or boss, may also surface. Some may choose to go into business for themselves, or quit a situation if a satisfactory resolution can’t be found. Best to be fair in all your dealings this month.

Mid-month finds you in better health, but faced with a decision regarding family or your love relationship. Some may choose to emigrate or move further away from their childhood home. There’s hope for new love, or renewed love, with fine chances of finding good people to date this month or special times with your beloved. Clear communication will prove vital in all your relationships this May.

The month ends with a major life change arriving. You’ve been preparing yourself, so don’t be afraid or second-guess yourself. The change brings in the positive new beginning and spiritual transformation you’ve been waiting for all this time. Bring it on!

 

Sagittarius

Commitments may be strengthened or formalized.

May begins with a new circle of friends likely to enter your life. You may share traditional views with them or study a similar spiritual path. TaiChi or Yoga would be great exercises to add to your routine. Your routines may also change to include more time to study further.

Mid-may sees you signing contracts to formalize existing commitments. For some, it may bring legal marriage or other nuptial documents. You’ll have to be strong to make some difficult decisions. Be scrupulously fair in all your dealings and decisions this month. Wills and other legal family documents may also be redrafted or amended.

May ends with a slowing down of energy. You may feel impulsive and rash, but patience would be better. Communication may be problematic on older phones and tablets, and you may want to consider an upgrade or an alternate technology. Delay decisions which require more research, if possible. If you’re considering buying a new vehicle, you may find a better deal in June.

There’s a strange uncertainty around you. This nervousness should pass before the month is over. Take a deep breath and center yourself. You’ve got this.

 

Capricorn

An unpredictable month for you. Try not to give in to anxiety.

The month begins on a slow note. You may have a smaller appetite than usual or vice-versa. It’s a good time to take stock of your health and see to health issues you may have previously postponed. Your energy levels may be down, or you may just be in a lazy mood. There’s nothing wrong with a pj-Saturday.

Mid-month may bring some delays in messages from loved ones or family. These will arrive soon enough. If you’ve been hiding or suppressing your emotions, old fears are likely to resurface. It’s time to deal with them. There’s emotional support and clear-sighted timely help from water- and air-signs. Breathe deeply and stay hydrated.

You’ll have to be brave and take a chance. Though you may feel you’re going into uncharted territory or others may balk at your daring, you will succeed. You’ll feel free and alive once more. If you’ve been having mobility problems, you should see significant improvement. Choose your path and steps carefully and your way will be all that easier. Your self-discipline and willpower is stronger than you think!

 

Aquarius

The month starts off with a bang.

You have all the drive and charisma you need to succeed. Working with a fire-sign will go well. Creative pursuits will be rewarding. It’s an exciting time!

Mid-month may bring a new contract. Read the fine print carefully. Pay attention to the rules and make sure you understand them. You’ll be held accountable for your actions.

The month ends on a quiet, contemplative note. You may decide to study astronomy or astrology. You’ll want to spend quality me-time and may resent intrusions. A retreat is just what you need, even if it’s only to the garden or coffee-shop.

 

Pisces

New paths and opportunities are here for you.

The month begins on a musical and inquiry note. Music helps you uncover new paths and patterns in your life. You may decide to study further or read more widely on religions or spiritual practices. You may be drawn to new teachers or new leaders.

Mid-month is a very nurturing and abundant time for you. You may redecorate or renovate. Your family could grow larger with a new pet. Gardening would go well, even if you’ve never had a green thumb before. Your spirituality will blossom.

May ends on a busy serious note. Try not to scatter your energy. Take your inspiration from nature. If you’re having a wedding ceremony outdoors, it should go very well with beautiful weather. And even if you’re not, time spent outdoors, and with friends, will bring you much joy. Picnic time!

 

Aries

You’re sitting pretty in your power.

May begins on a good note with you feeling very confident and in control. Others recognize your organizational abilities and respect your knowledge. There may be some conflict of interest with other Aries, and possibly the odd Scorpio.

Mid-month brings demands to honor your commitments, especially to family and family endeavors. It will be hard for you to get out of family outings and visits to parents. You’ll find peace and satisfaction in seeing the slow but steady progress of your current projects. You may also spend more time than usual outdoors in the sun. Do remember to wear your sunhat and sunscreen.

May ends on a happy, contented note. Family time will be fun and you’ll enjoy the security of your love relationship. If single, you’ll be happier spending time with family than with dating, for now. It’s a nicely balanced May for you!
