TAROTSCOPES | MAY 28 - JUNE 3
IV | THE EMPEROR
In true Gemini season fashion, the astrology this week is guided by two stories being stitched through our sky. The first is told by wordsmith Mercury - swiftly entering his home sign on Tuesday after a full Moon in Sagittarius - putting chatter in the box and popping out like Jack. Words might fly high in every direction, seeming to start a wildfire of ideas; some ripped from old wounds, others ushering in fresh and fancy philosophies. Use Tuesday’s Full Moon to nip out-dated narratives in the bud before you bounce around the page with the preamble of your next novel. The second story is felt on a level far deeper than our cognition. As Venus approaches the heart of kind and sensitive Cancer, she forms a grand trine with Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. Balanced, this a is truly divine triangle, allowing our emotions to flow full force and sending sacred support to back it up. Venus in Cancer can be a little timid - the kind of lover who wants you to JUST KNOW without having ever told you what she needs. Unless they’ve got heavy water in their charts, your partner probably can’t read minds (or feelings!) and even if they could, they will be far more capable of giving you the compassion you need if you communicate what’s up. Use the power of Mercury in his home sign to share thoughts and access the emotional expertise that Cancer contains. Trust you’ll get positive reinforcement when you focus on forward movement.
The Emperor is an energy that works through and for us. Like a father figure most wish they had, he shows up to help us get down - on stable ground. The Emperor want us to observe how we take action and be considerate of our boundaries. The astrology this week is heavy on the mutable, the flow, the rapid roars and swooping swells. If we aren’t careful it could be a bit like white water rafting. The Emperor asks "do our routine practices align with all that our relationships require?" Where can we build better structures to help us succeed? What rotting wood withers away when doused with the waves of creative force that this week offers? We are gifted an immense quantity of creative flow this week but without the house rules to right it, the edifice in which to arrange it and the diligence to properly place our dreams, we’re left with a jungle of overgrowth and invasive species.
This week, spend some time surveying the system that serves you. What routine rockets you out of bed in the morning? What song sings you into sweet sleep at night? Which activities get you through the grind with vigor and then some to play. Did you structure in any time to play? Did you do the laundry so you have something to wear to the play? Make sure to make space for chores and chosen tasks that keep you chipper. What do you have to show for the the labor you lusted after? If your work isn’t reaping the rewards you want, this is the perfect week to get real about your regimen and rectify it. No judgement, just release and fresh starts. With all the water in the sky you can wipe it clean for a blank slate. Don’t put yourself off until tomorrow when you’re worth the work you can do today.
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.
