TAROTSCOPES | MAR 4 - MAR 10
Judgement is the precursor to faith. The doorway to understanding. The initiation factor for forgiveness. When Judgement shows up, it intends to inform us about our humanity. Freaks us out first with our own fallibility. Forces us to reckon with the naturally imperfect flow. When Judgement appears, something didn’t go our way and we subsequently realize our version of perfect is subjective.
Generally Judgement of externals is a sign our internal is off. It’s an emblem of the element of ourselves or our process that we’re refusing to accept, let alone honor. Anger, as a wise friend recently reminded me, is a secondary emotion. Judgement is often the thought that accompanies it. And in all this, Judgement is a form of recollection. Of counting crows until we’ve gone mad enough with our assessing that we choose to embody the dove. Judgement is the last step that frees us into a state of cycles completing.
This week, as the Sun wades forward through the final sign of the zodiac and Mercury turns around in the direction of retrieving light, we’re focused on finding faith in the midst of mistakes. On learning to wait out any confusion by being willing to wade in it for a bit. On letting the bread take time to bake lest it come out a mushy mess. Meanwhile, Uranus enters Taurus, solidly ready shaking up earth and offer a dose of shock to our values for the next eight years. This is no small ingress and we would do well to listen for the genius’ introduction to its own splendid story.
Judgement is a card of awakening. Of seeing something clearly, as if for the first time. From a place of neutral observation. Followed by forgiveness. Judgement is neither crude nor crazy, though it may lend the sensation of electric synchronicity. Be lucid with your lightbulb moments. Judgement will not subject itself to “bad” or “good” light - it is simply light. It is truth. It is the softening the spirals outward from clarity, like ripples on water’s surface when provoked by a pebble. It will show you your patterns without criticism. It will hold space for your process with perception and prudence but not displeasure. It will not paint over your pain but it will offer it providence if you will allow it.
This week, let yourself be in a constant state of reviving. Of waking up to your relationship with your environment. Of seeing miscommunications as indicators of where you can shift your stance or your action to better align with what is needed. When others point out mistakes, eye their analysis as if it were a gift. Look past the judgement so you can engender your own evolution, regardless of what someone else thinks of you. Ultimately, the way you move through the world is the most divine expression of your higher self and legacy. Look at who you are and who you want to be. Welcome the work of self-examination and action that will carry you to the place where your principles are profound, your actions protect their integrity, and your respect for your very human process marries humility with the highest possible regard.
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.
