TAROTSCOPES | DECEMBER 10 - 16
0 THE FOOL
The Fool is a question of perspective. Guided by the number zero, this card asks us to engage the space between empty and full. The Fool can, in its own way be complete. Perfect. Whole. This week, decide what you want to embody and take up all the space you can with it. Jupiter in Sagittarius carries a vision in leaps and bounds. With every personal planet finally direct in motion, we are given ample opportunity to move, mix and make ourselves known.
Start with what you need most. If you need kindness, begin with yourself. The palm of your hand receiving the thrum in your chest. The tips of your fingers trailing through your hair, down your neck, over your thighs. The thought coated in sweetness like a spoonful of honey soothing a throat.
If you need structure, The Fool suggests you lay groundwork - and will give you the energy and information later to reorder it if necessary. Draw up the plans. Commit to a scene in the story. Take earth and water (physical and feeling) to make clay. Mud is the substance that will build the wall. Is malleable. Requires your restraint and persistence as you reshape it every which way. If you need time, spin a web of patience. The muddy material provides you with the structure inherent to the time it takes to dry. Not too fast or too slow. Design a strategy that accepts reality. Ground yourself in life on life’s terms.
If you need love, your challenge is to embrace anything you can with your whole self. Yes with your arms - but also with your eyes and ears. Hold with your heart and your head. Hug with your confidence and your trust.
If you need trust, begin by trusting yourself. Have a conversation with your gut. Tell it how smart it is. Revel in its ability to digest everything you feed it. Thank it for its direction and its strength. Practice trusting yourself more than your fear.
If you need change, be different. No matter how small the shift in the image, the variation between seconds on a moving screen is still change. The film only unfolds if you press play and allow it to advance in increments. All the parts eventually become the whole. The moving image reveals itself.
If you need to be whole, start with the part that is right here, even if it feels broken or bruised. Seeing or feeling black and blue means you know something about the world. Something broken means you have pieces to connect. Something empty means there is space to be filled. And when you don’t have the liquid but you have a cup, lift the vessel as your offering. Watch what is offered in return.
Everything is an opportunity for something in The Fool’s world. Empty yourself of expectation for what hasn’t happened and honor what is. You are right here now. “I will be okay” is a powerful statement but The Fool asks that you affirm rather than anticipate. “I am okay.” Enough. Valued. Alive in the process of becoming.
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.
