TAROTSCOPES | JAN 21 - JAN 27
XVIII THE MOON
Once in a blue moon, we pull cards double. They arrive like lightning and refuse to leave until we’ve worked their magic. For the second week in a row, the Moon graces our presence. Fitting as the last Lunar Eclipse in Leo for the next eight years sits at the end of one week and beginning of another. Like outer planetary stations, the feeling power of an eclipse reverberates through the days leading up to perfection and thunders in waning aftershock.
The Moon is a sight for all that’s unseen. Asks our willingness to dip into divinity, even when it seems like a practical destruction. The Moon is the primal mother, protective of her kin. She is the wild woman embedded far into our core. The most sensate part of our souls available to do the work. She works outside structure, external of time. She rejects reality by questioning it. Concerns herself with clarity by being it, despite determined blowback when things feel too big.
This week, as Venus conjoins Jupiter in Sagittarius, the Moon is gunning for us to get with ourselves. What might seem mad in ordinary circumstances is actually called for. If you’re over the top, applaud yourself for being that bold. If you’re angry to the point of alienating, let your feels be felt. If you’re offering more than you thought was possible and worried about getting nothing in return, go with the gut that regulates or stimulates your gift giving. If you’re taking on more than you can chew, use this as an opportunity to strengthen your jaw muscles.
The Moon defies all rationale. Rebels against our rigid foundation. This week has the potential to bring abundant fortune if you’re emerging with optimism and enthusiasm for all the work you’ve done to earn it. Remember, when we’re not used to receiving, a thousand voices will step in to decide we don’t deserve it. This week, your task is to listen less to the mess and live more for the magic.
WHAT EVEN IS A TAROTSCOPE? We often think of horoscopes as predictions that are specific to each astrological sign. In Ancient Greek, the term horoscope simply means "I watch the hour." To astrologers today, a horoscope is a chart that maps the planetary bodies in the sky. From this chart, we derive meaning that can influence how we work with energy. Regardless of our unique individual charts, we are ALL working with the same energy from above. Each week, I examine this energy, pull a tarot card and write a guided meditation with the collective in mind. My tarotscopes are meant to be read as inspiration. Please note that because we are all operating with our individual energy, some elements will resonate more than others. Take what you like and leave the rest. Tarotscopes are offered freely in an effort to cultivate collective healing. I am always grateful for your support in sharing this work with anyone you think it might help. If you are inspired or find support here, please consider making a donation to help sustain these weekly offerings.
