Tarotscopes March 2017-Bumper Ed!

#writerstarot

by Leenna

I didn’t intend to write a bumper edition. It just sort of happened when I felt drawn to include a Flower Power Card for each of you. Isha Lerner’s Power of Flower Cards adds an element of healing to this month’s tarotscopes. Some of you may work through these healings this month while others may take a few months more.

*only for entertainment purposes.

 

Pisces

Woohoo! March looks like a great month for your career or major projects.

The month begins with a victory! Sure there’s still a lot of work to do, but a major battle has been won, and you might want to celebrate it. Even more important to you, it seems that someone finally admits that they’re wrong about a thorny issue. And now that your sage points are acknowledged, both of you can move on.

Mid-month may find you fretting about your appearance or your creative work not being ‘good enough’. So what if your cup-cakes aren’t as professional-looking as you-know-who’s? The proof is in the tasting. And while a new wardrobe would be great, can you really give up your favourite pair of slacks just now? Hang in for a few weeks more and you’ll find a new store which carries affordable clothing more suited to your tastes.

The month-end demands you make a choice. While this may not be an easy one to make, it’s one you can’t put off for much longer. On the plus side, it’s not one that will bind you forever. Go with the flow for now, and reconsider before July if this decision is working for you or not. By July, you’ll be able to rescind the decision, or tweak it to your satisfaction.

Your Flower Power card: Manzanita (The Goddess)
This essence embodies the natural beauty and diversity of the feminine, bringing healing for your mid-month ‘not good enough’ appearance and creation blues. This card encourages you to honour your feminine energies without self-judgement. Sing, dance and create as your energies dictate. Then reap the rewards of your fertile mind and body.

 

Aries:

Oh dear, your Gemini/Aquarius friend is up to their tricks again. Never mind, your intuition will come to your rescue.

The month begins with calls to action from your impulsive air-sign friend or partner (or that psycho wannabe girlfriend/boyfriend). They’re demanding, insistent, and stretching your good humour and amiable grin to breaking point. Don’t let them win. Slink away, turn off your phone and don’t (whatever you do) lose your temper. Take deep breaths, long walks and seek the light while they rush into darkness. You don’t have to rescue everybody, especially when they’re doing your head in.

Mid-month is great for meditation and visiting your mother or gran. Your intuition is spot on, especially during the full moon. Your dreams may even be prophetic (so lets hope they’re all sweet) and you’ll want to watch your liquid intake, cutting back on alcohol and fizzy drinks.
If your partner is Cancerian and you’re wanting a child, you may be well on your way to being a parent or new pet owner.

March ends on a good career note. You’ll feel you’ve mastered a new skill (or yourself) and be singing your own praises (we all need to sometimes). Fortunately, people take you seriously, and your work situation should improve significantly.

Your Flower Power card: Bleeding Heart (Chiron – The Wounded Healer)
This essence speaks to your need to heal a deep wound (possibly one that pesky air-sign keeps peeling the scab off). This essence reminds you that your pain is healing, that your lessons around fear, loss and abandonment are now about done and it’s time for you to move on with an open heart and compassion. For some, a new healing relationship will begin this month (but probably not with that pesky/psycho air-sign unless they’re your spouse).

 

Taurus:

Dear Taurus, this doesn’t look set to be your favourite month especially if your mother is visiting, and the weather getting you down.

March begins with you needing to be careful of your knees and ankles, especially if you live where the thaw is setting in. Any falls should be checked, and proper care taken of sprains and swelling. Wear practical shoes with good traction, and hang on to your down-coat for as long as possible for the extra padding which you need more than fashion just now. If you were hoping for a holiday in better climes or for a change in residence, they might be delayed till later in April or even August. Take good care of yourself, as it’s your well-being which may be the major crimp in your plans.

Mid-month brings the blues. Avoid your friend Pisces as they’re also going through a bit of a blue-patch, and two blues don’t make a green. Journal, stay out of your head and drop down into your heart. Bake, or find things you will bake when you have the energy to do so. This issue has its roots in events from nine months ago or so. Deal with it once you’re feeling strong enough and let it go with a releasing ritual involving water, but not the icy shoreline of some waterway! Talk to your Aries friend for some fresh insight.

The month may end with a visit from your mother (or to your mother) which fills you with a little bit of dread. There may be some much needed dredging of the past (and talk about exes and hexes) but it’s all good in the end as it’s bringing up exactly what you need to release in order for you to move on with your life.

Your Flower Power Card: Mountain Pride (The Peaceful Warrior)
This essence speaks of you taking personal responsibility for yourself and your actions. It’s a call to destiny, the reason you’re are being asked to reflect on and release your past issues. While your destiny may not be known just yet, this card assures you that your path is opening and that the bountiful and benevolent universe is waiting for you to walk your talk. Once you know what your talk is, you’ll be able to walk it, no prob.

 

Gemini:

You knew this year is going to be especially significant, and here comes more confirmation.

March begins with you in a wonderfully strong position to act on your truest desires (so lets hope they are healthier than the junk food you’ve started eating recently). In both love and your career, you’re in an almost unassailable position. You’ll be applauded for you heroic efforts and reap all the benefits you’ve been dreaming of. If you’ve been having the odd health problem (especially of the female kind) you’ll make a swift recovery.

Mid-month may seem dreary and trudging as time seems to slow down just when you’re all antsy over a message you’re waiting on. Never fear, your bank balance is miraculously growing stronger at this time. Tediousness also shows you just where you’re tripping over yourself.

The month ends with a fabulous opportunity, but one which needs careful judgement and timing. There’s also a level of commitment called for which may be the main thing making you hesitate. A possible trip over water (the local lake or the ocean?) may also shake you out of the lassitude you’ve been fretting about. When news comes, it comes fast. You’ll be much happier with things back to breakneck speed.

Your Flower Power Card: Passion Flower (Christos, Krishna)
This essence speaks of great hardships and resurrection into greater love and compassion. This card confirms messages arriving on angels’ wings to help you cross great divides and find the compassion and love you’ve thought yourself incapable of experiencing and showing. Though you may not realise it, your compassion greatly moves others at this time.

 

Cancer:

The clearing out continues this month with some much needed changes.

The month begins with a shock, possibly regarding finances or love. As your perceptions change, you’ll see things for what they really are. A romantic gesture, which could possibly backfire, may also bring some much needed clarity to your love-life. Though this may seem dire at first, once the misunderstandings are cleared up, the clarity will allow for better future foundations. Violent weather may also affect your home or work place, particularly electric storms and flooding. Make sure your home insurance is up to date.

Mid-month brings up old guilt or a sense of melancholy. Someone may also be twisting your words and deeds to make themselves seem a martyr and to steal your glory. Avoid confrontation and let the truth out itself. Quiet time and some fun movies or craft-work should have you back to yourself much quicker than usual.

March ends with some delays in communication or transport. If you’ve made plans to meet up with friends, take a book or make sure your tablet is fully-charged, and remember to have your phone handy. Don’t forget to take a sweater. You’ll be feeling the chill more than usual.

Your Flower Power Card: Sunflower (The Solar King and Lunar Queen)
This essences talks of the divine will (masculine) and universal love (feminine) balancing and combining within you. It calls on you to show your strength and integrity during this time, even while remembering to be grateful and humble.

 

Leo:

You’ll have to balance long-term and short-term goals this month.

March begins with a conflict of interest, possibly with an Aries or your father. You’re in your stubborn phase, and so are they. You may have to call in an arbitrator or negotiator on your behalf. Don’t be too harsh on your kids or pets, and remember that iron-fists get dented easily.

Mid-month may see you having to honour your word even though you’d rather not. You’d like nothing more than to wriggle free, but events and others will hold you strictly to them. Get it over with quickly and you’ll soon feel your freedom again.

The month ends in a juggling act and some interesting footwork to maintain your balance. It will be a relief after the previous two weeks of feeling hemmed in. Your decisions made now may hold your focus for the next two years, so decide wisely.

Your Flower Power Card: Rose (Queen of Heaven, Mother of The World)
This essence speaks of accepting universal love and truth. This card marks your opening to a greater understanding of love in its many forms and expressions. If you’re experiencing heart-ache and break-up in your current relationship, it is asking you to reflect on and reconsider your expression and beliefs on love. If you’re single and searching for love, it confirms you’re manifesting the kind of love you’d like to experience next. If you’re in a stable couple, it heralds the elevation of your current relationship into a more mature and sustainable love.

 

Virgo

Both navel-gazing and star-gazing serve you well this month.

March begins with your need for solitude and reflection. You’d rather tinker with your soul and other fixable things than with what you’ve been dealing with socially from the end of February. You need your space, and god help anyone who tries to take that away from you just now!

Mid-month brings a release of old energies which no longer serve you. You may divorce yourself from another or give up an old habit. Whatever it is, it’s big and you’ll feel better almost immediately – more energised than you have in ages.

The month comes to end with either a difficult decision pending or the hiding of a love affair/engagement. Maybe you’ll even elope… Whatever it is, it’s big, and you won’t take too long to decide on a solution which makes you the victor/partner in this situation.

Your Flower Power Cards: Fig (Isis)
This essence speaks of the integration of your masculine and feminine into a balanced, knowledgeable whole. It helps reveal life’s mysteries to you, allowing you access to higher wisdom. You may wish to study a religion or tradition further.

Libra

Old skills, or newly mastered ones, bring you interesting new projects!

The month begins with recognition of your skills and abilities. Money flows from your creations and ability to deliver fine work. You’ll finally feel at peace with your abilities.

Mid March brings lots of exciting events which have you tumbling with joy and eager to take chances on bright new things. You might try something you’ve never done before, or fall head over heels, just like in the song. Your dreams will be big, your plans even bigger, and wouldn’t you know, some of those castles in the air will float gently down to the ground.

The month ends with a wonderful new project, person, or pet entering your life. You may even conceive a new project or person – or your pet may. Knowledge you need will arrive out of the blue and all things look beautiful and golden for now.

Your Flower Power Card: Purple Water Lily (Water Nymph)
This essence speaks of growing awareness, of bridging the material with the spiritual. This card confirms your visions of beauty and wisdom, your insights into the mysterious and your growing awareness of your true self.

 

Scorpio

Quick! Grab your friend Virgo to help you begin healthy new habits, and your friend Libra to start something new and amazing.

March begins with you taking off the rose-tinted glasses and recognising the past for what is it is – the past. You can’t live with it, and you can live without it. Time to give it a respectful nod and move on.

Mid-month has you joining friend Virgo in throwing off old shackles and habits and cultivating a happy mind, body and spirit. If you need some support through this daunting undertaking you’ll have shoulders to lean on and help pick you up again should you fall. Camping is not a good idea for you this month, especially if you’re allergic to bees and wasps.

March comes to an end with a fun new project, person or pet entering your life. You may also catch the eye of someone very special if you’re single in love, or the eye of a generous client if you’re in the arts. Whatever it is, you’ll feel happier, healthier and luckier than you have in months.

Your Flower Power Card: Lavender (Archangel Raphael)
This essence speaks of cleansing and healing of your body, mind and soul. It confirms your decision to live a healthier lifestyle and that you will indeed have spiritual as well as material support in your quest to heal and uplift yourself. Your stresses will be washed away and you’ll feel light-hearted.

 

Sagittarius

Courage lost will be found as events move fast this month.

The month begins with you feeling like the Lion from Oz. It could be worse, you could feel like the Tin Man. You’ll have to dig deep to find your courage to move forward, and possibly shed a few long-held beliefs about yourself along the way. Take care of yourself and hydrate well.

Mid March sees your most dreaded obstacle removed and some old ties cut. This may be your actual workday tie if you decide to move on to another job or career. If this is the case, you can always re-purpose those ties as headbands.
You may be giving up on what seems like a royal position to others in exchange for something more mundane. But the financial benefits and stability are more in line with what you really need just now.

The month ends with your intuition and spirituality in top-gear. You may begin remembering past-life or early-life experiences to help you make sense of your more recent life events. You spot cycles easily and your self-growth will expand in leaps and bounds. The full moon has a special gift for you. And if you’re single and unattached, you may dream of your soul-mate or future spouse. That said, internet dating doesn’t go well for you; being close to water does, especially the ocean or a large sea.

Your Flower Power Card: Bleeding Heart (Chiron – The Wounded Healer)
This essence brings healing with unconditional love, along with good health and well-being. This card encourages you to release those past life, early childhood hurts and emotional wounds and suffering. It highlights the offers of unconditional love in your life and asks if you’re now ready to both receive and give it. I feel this card is talking especially to servicemen and women wounded while on duty, as well as those who faced abandonment by their parents or other care-givers. If you’re so inclined, work with Archangels Michael and Raphael, and spend time with large pets, especially dogs and horses.

 

Capricorn

Unpredictable events may throw your plans off kilter. Seek balance this month.

March begins with some inflammation, in mind and in body. A fire sign is stoking an aggravating situation. It may be a temperamental fire-sign at home, or an aggrieved one at work. Do your best to cool matters by being firm and unflappable. Drink lots of water, especially if you’re on medication for a swollen ankle or knee, and watch out for arthritic conditions flaring up this month. Go easy on the medication and experiment with natural remedies where possible.

Mid-month brings a sense of missing something or someone you love. Distance from your beloved may seem greater than ever, and you’ll spend a lot of time on the phone. Their health may concern you and you’re frustrated you can’t nurse them or support them further.

The month ends with a feeling of lack of creativity and loss of balance in your life. Work may be stressful with the load you have to carry, and some added responsibility. You’ll feel the urge to create something – what, how and when is causing you to fret. Chill, and give yourself some time-off to get your mojo back.

Your Flower Power Card: Orchid (Pan, God of Wild Nature)
The essence of this card speaks of seeking your passion and expressing it in a healthy, harmonious way. This card encourages you to attune with your deepest desires (and sexuality). Follow your instincts and explore your greatest passions. Allow this energy to recharge your creativity and vitality.

 

Aquarius

A month of detoxing everything, from your iPhone to your cupboards.

The month begins with some communication errors and possible misunderstandings. Bad weather may impact your international communications and music wouldn’t soothe the troubled beast this raises in you. You may have a week or two of do-overs which annoy you at best. Put in that extra hour or two to meet your deadline. There’s better times coming real soon.

Mid March has you in detox overdrive. Something someone says will needle you into throwing out old things, new things never used and other things which nibble away at your time. You’ll try detoxing concoctions and perhaps a massage or two. You may even cut ties with some toxic frenemies.

March ends with a river of new energy flowing your way. You might start a new project or a new business, communication clears up and you’ll be bursting with creative ideas. Your love-life changes gear too, pleasantly surprising you.

Your Flower Power Card: Rose (Queen Of Heaven, Mother of the World)
This essence speaks of cosmic love and manifested/manifesting love. This card encourages you to accept cosmic love and wisdom. It highlights your relationship to your twin-flame and to the world in general. If you are seeking your twin-flame or soul-mate, it encourages you to manifest and maintain these relationships wisely. If you are already in couple, it guides you to greater spiritual union with your beloved.

Happy New Year!

It’s a great start to the year for Taurus and Gemini. Read on for all the details.

 

*only for entertainment purposes

 

Capricorn

You’ve got everything in hand this month along with some great new beginnings!

The month starts off with you feeling really quite competent and in control of what seems like chaos to very one else. You’ll be the one everyone turns to for direction, advice and inspiration. Money is there, but not always readily available. This is a good thing as you might overspend at the beginning of the month otherwise.

The middle of the month may bring the release of a contract which has been impeding you, or the renewal of one more in your favor. Any heaviness of spirit you may have felt earlier in the month will disappear. If you’ve been searching for a new job, you’re likely to find one before the month ends.

The last third of the month holds some wonderful news. You might win an art raffle of some other small and slightly embarrassing prize, which nevertheless will have you smiling. You might also receive long awaited news about love and new creative projects. One thing’s for sure, whatever the news is, it will make 2017 seem like one of your best years already.

 

Aquarius

A bit of a dour start to the month. There might be lots of harsh words flying around, bad judgements and more accusations about lack of responsibility. That success which was almost within reach has shifted a little away…

The first part of the month may bring some legal or career problems. Laws and legislation will be causing you much stress, and your new boss might be very, very demanding of your time. He/She really does not know the meaning of: ‘just give me a break’. Arguments with your spouse or ex may also bring up issues which should have long been dealt with. This is what running away brings you. Take note and resolve to not let domestic issues slide as you’ve done in the past.

Mid-month brings back your self-confidence and teaches you more about boundaries – if they are too lax, too strong or just right. You might want to shift some of those boundaries, especially related to your time as someone or something may be taking advantage of your time.

The month ends on a slightly brighter note. Hard-to-please boss might actually compliment you on your job or offer you an unexpected opportunity you’ve long been waiting for. This is all good, but don’t expect it to be a bed of roses as there’s much hard work to do, and if there’s a change in location, it may well be to a place where the sun don’t shine much.

Be brave, you’ve got this.

 

Pisces

You’re still clearing out much of the old, and haven’t really noticed that it’s a new year energetically. The last of 2016’s business and issues are still a concern, but you can just about see the end of the pile of stuff you’ve got to get through.

The month begins with a feeling of being ignored or left-out of things. You may feel like your partner is ignoring you or that nobody minds what you say…And then you’ll receive a surprise gift – a new dress or shirt which proves otherwise. There might also be a surprise party or a treat which soothes your soul and makes you a little wistful.

Around mid-month you’ll be in a much better space mentally. All the drama and trauma of 2016 and will no longer affect you or bring you down. You’ll be able to speak frankly about matters which are concerning you, and you’ll stop retreating from confrontations you may have feared. Things wouldn’t be half as daunting as you thought they’d be.

As you get to the end of the month, you’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief. Your greatest efforts from over the last ten weeks will begin to bear fruit and you can toast yourself on a job well done. You might also pay off a small debt (in money or in kind) and will finally feel that a new year has begun.

 

Aries

Okay, so your big dreams didn’t materialise as you’d hope. Time to let that go and focus on the more mundane as the new year begins. There’s some hope for later in the year, but for now, you’ve got to get your energy levels up again.

As the month begins, you find yourself in more cheerful waters. Whatever or whoever was bringing you down no longer has you doubting yourself. Your mind is clearer even if the weather is not.

Towards mid-month and just after, you may feel a little rebellious at work. You don’t want the same office as last year, you don’t want the same parking space as last year, you so don’t want last year… But be reasonable, you still have some chaff to sift through before you can find the metaphorical gold you seek. And you have to admit you’re much better off than Chad next door. Bide your time, it’s coming.

The month comes to an end with some success. You may find you’re accepted into a fellowship or program you hadn’t thought you stood a chance of gaining entrance into, or you start planning and gathering the elements for that great business idea you’ve had.

Bide your time. It’s coming.

 

Taurus

Aww, Taurus, you have like the best start to the year! Someone loves you very, very much and is trying to find the best way to show this. Not that there aren’t any challenges this month, but they’ll pale into insignificance with all the good stuff going on.

The new year begins with you looking and feeling great! Lots of compliments come your way and children and animals adore you. So if you’re allergic to either, you’ll want to carry some anti-histamines. You’ll also feel very respected and may even be given the royal treatment. Perhaps someone is taking you out for a high-tea!

Around mid-month you’ll have your first challenge and opportunity of the year. Some deliberation is called for, so please don’t be too impulsive. Neither should you delay the decision too long. Timing is critical so follow your intuition, weigh it together with the facts and shake your lucky dice just to be sure. Don’t let others influence you unduly. A misstep now may lose you more time and face than you can comfortably afford just now.

As January draws to an end, you might have to fight for your rights and find yourself justifying your decisions. This doesn’t make your decisions wrong, just hard for some to digest. So you may no longer be the most popular person in the office, but that’s okay if the work is getting done in time. Yes, this will go on your permanent record, and in a good way.

Be strong, but not too stubborn. Let the other person be heard as well.

 

Gemini

A better start to the year than you would have believed a few weeks ago. You, too, will be Mr/Ms Popular, drawing lots of admiration. Pity you may not notice it all as you’re so stuck into your studies and projects. And that thing/person you’re pursuing (yes that one) is almost within your grasp.

The new year brings an abundance of good stuff your way – new clothes, new shoes, new look and lots of treats with family and friends. You’ll steal any show without even trying, so beware the green-eyed ones…not that you’ll notice as you attention is on that thing/person you’re pursuing (yes, that one).

Around mid-month, studies and money turn serious and consume almost all your attention. It’s a good time for research as you’re in the mood to dig, and dig deep to get all the information and knowledge you need. And what you unearth will bring you satisfaction. If archaeology is your new passion, you may well discover something remarkable which will occupy you for years to come.
Pets (especially dogs) will also be in a digging mood, so fence off your prized veggie-patch carefully.

The month comes to an end with you in a stronger position than you’d hope to be. Your vitality will be high, and your presentations will go well. Others will look to you for leadership. Health will be good as well. It’s a great start to the year!

 

Cancer

Darn it! Why do the goal posts keep moving for you? While the year begins on a sociable note, the rest of the month calls on more personal resources than you may be willing to give.

The new year brings new friends, lots of gathering (some virtual) and perhaps a love message from a fire sign. You may also find a new way of communicating – joining a new social media platform or a new sports or social club. It’s also a good time to complete creative projects. Internet dating will also go well.

Around mid-month your beliefs may shock others, or you may experience a mild shock, probably related to a family member. Your world will change, but not in a violent way. Perhaps you’ll get news of a parent’s health problem or your project may be delayed, or you may finally get that scholarship or work visa you’ve been hankering after for ages, or that real cutie may actually notice you exist! Not all shocks are bad, but why now, just when you’re so comfortable? Darn it!

The month ends with some breathing space. Your dream may be slightly delayed till the end of February, giving you ample time to digest the news, and make plans and preparations. It’s an exciting start to the year so get as much sleep and me-time as you can.

 

Leo

Poor Leo, why are you starting the year with such a frownie-face. Never mind, things will get sexy for a while, and then you’ll have to return to the drawing board if you really want to realise your dreams this year.

The year begins with a larger tummy and maybe hitting the gym will be a good idea. Your romantic partner/spouse will be very attentive and demanding, and neither of you will want to leave the Build-It store, the furniture store, the new car-dealership, the January clothing sales…Yes, things are important to you this year, and you’re determined to get them.

Mid-month jolts you into second gear with a challenge. It may seem unsolvable at first. Once you stop ranting and raving, you’ll be able to see a way through, but perhaps not using your usual methods. Take this new idea to the boss/client and be surprised at their reaction.

The month ends with your frownie-face turning shifty-eyed. Someone (could it possibly be you?) is not being quite straight with everyone. This may just be your paranoia, but it’s a good idea to upgrade your internet security and anti-virus too. And no, you don’t do shifty-eyed very well. Go back to frownie-face and you’ll get to the bottom of things much faster.

 

Virgo

An unsettling start to the year. You may feel that something’s missing from your life just now, and begin exploring less traditional concepts in religion and study. You’ll also want to renovate or decorate this month.

The year begins with the feeling that a vital part of your life is missing or inactive. Is it a romantic partner, children or the feeling that you aren’t following your true life path? Reunions are harder to arrange this month, and finding time to catch up with old friends will prove more difficult than expected. Mostly though, you’ll be craving a romantic partner if single, or more time with your beloved if not.

Mid-month has you looking at less traditional beliefs and ways of getting things done. You may innovate or otherwise recycle old ideas and items, perhaps at the displeasure of more traditional thinkers. You’ll also consider a less traditional relationship, perhaps with someone who has very different religious beliefs to you.

The end of the month brings much dissatisfaction with your immediate environment. You might have new cupboards or cabinets put in, or throw out old and worn furniture to revamp your home. You’ll have lots of fun mixing and matching styles, and will try out different styles and feels around your home to find one you’re most comfortable with. So don’t stress, experiment.

 

Libra

An emotional month for you may bring an overwhelm just when you thought the fun would start.

The year begins with a yearning for someone’s attention, perhaps someone who is quite far from you distance-wise. You’ll be looking for missed opportunities and second chances, or perhaps giving one yourself. You’d like to comfort someone who seems to be hurting, but you don’t want to step over any boundaries either. Your intuition is right; give this person some space, but let them know you’re there for them as well.

By mid-month you might suffer a crisis of faith – perhaps in yourself. You may be spreading yourself a little too thin, and so may have bitten off more than you can chew. Yes, it’s good to be there for others, to be the shoulder everyone needs to cry on, but you too need some space — some breathing and centering time — so be sure to not short-change yourself this month.

Towards the end of the month, you may be inundated with memories, both sweet and sour. Deal with any emotions this brings up by reaffirming your present and your commitment to your future. You can sense your life is changing for the better, and these are the old ghosts saying goodbye. By mid February, you’ll be easily ensconced into your new life and no longer troubled by past issues or regrets.

 

Scorpio

‘So close yet so far’, that’s what may be your mantra this month as Mercury retrograde plays awful tricks on you. It’s only because you been asking for a massive change, and all this bother is now preparing you for it.

You may have to act quickly to avoid a bad situation. Be careful when driving and remember to always wear your seat-belt. There are shuffles and quick-steps at work as well. A new boss or a take-over doesn’t help things run as smoothly as usual. Storms will also unsettle you and possibly give you reason to reconsider your home, your transport or your communication devices.

Mid-month brings lots of missed or misunderstood communications. Your spam folder will be unusually fill with really important messages you may be waiting on for days. You partner may not understand what you’re saying either, so double-check that everyone is on the same page.

The month ends with a celebration you really don’t want to attend. It’s a new year, but the conversation is old, the food is the same and your boredom is becoming so obvious that it borders on the impolite. Stay at home and play a computer game or watch a new movie you’d never consider watching otherwise. It’s less sociable, but it may save a friendship or two.

 

Sagittarius

So you’re feeling a little stranded, marooned even. Hardly the fun, exciting start to the year you’d been so looking forward to, but at least you’re forced to stand still and reflect for a few moments…or days.

The year begins with a sense of stagnation, or even resentment at having to take a step or two backwards. It’s not a good idea to push for anything, make new travel arrangements, or try new methods of communication. It feels very much like you’re stuck in transit, sitting in traffic or lost a map. Chill and enjoy being a passenger. Wind down the window and smell the roses (or car fumes). It will remind you how much you have that you can be grateful for.

Around mid-month, you may realise that your cherished wish is going to be delayed again. Something’s not quite as perfect as you’d wish it be, and if you’re getting engaged, the jeweler has made a rather large mistake with the ring. Or, you may be waiting on others who just don’t have the same sense of urgency as you do.

The month comes to an end with more settled feelings. The heartache is healed. Your anger has died down, your sense of urgency is put into perspective, and you can be your own amiable self again.
