New Moon in Virgo, 20 September 2017

IMG_20170918_215521I am always up for a yummy New Moon, when my mind is at its sharpest and my emotions at their clearest. And I am quite looking forward to this New Moon in Virgo on 20 September. It has such silently powerful potential to liberate our will and ‘can do’ through force of discipline rather than aggression. It offers the opportunity to serve our own agenda without stomping all over others’.

This is going to be an excellent time to get past an injury (to the body, mind or ego) that has kept you cloistered (literally/figuratively) to make a fresh start towards better health. If you were disillusioned by your faith in a belief system or person, this is a good time to purge the offender from your life. If an addiction or mental health condition took a toll on you, a new routine could help restore your body. The conditions will support your choice to fight whatever addiction or repeating pattern keeps you beholden to the experience of loss.

Somewhere in your life there is an element of self-sabotage or damage you are inflicting on yourself by choosing (whether you realise it or not) to lose yourself or your dignity. Somewhere you are continuing to do something that does not bring you true joy, yet it is something you cannot break away from (even if it is from a misguided sense of duty or guilt). It could even be that you are in fact addicted to the pain that a situation or thought pattern brings you — can you look yourself in the eye and say that you aren’t just indulging yourself? This is a great time to recommit to your rehabilitation and self-care away from this hole of self-destruction.

At this time, that which once felt sublime starts to look old and tired. Time to shed that dead foliage.

Still, as in all planetary movements, there is some icky potential for things to wrong too. So beware:

  1. Signing up for a job (paid or voluntary), personal routine, medical/healing program or course of study that ends up enslaving you to someone’s agenda or cult of personality. Scrutinise the people you will be involved with in your undertakings like you would a contract’s fine print. This caution also applies if you are bringing home a pet — because they could turn out to be a problem somewhere down the line. Take on new obligations with full awareness and information. 
  2. Being drawn into an arrangement, contract or partnership where you end up doing all the work or incurring losses through needless expenses or legal matters, or someone else’s sense of entitlement. Recognise the difference between service and slavery.
  3. ‘Telling it like it is’ to ‘balance the scales’ in a way that hurts someone deeply or complete ends the relationship with them (which ironically will tie you to them karmically, across lifetimes, for so much longer that you would like!). Let go of people in your life with grace.

Quite poetically, the Earth Magic Oracle card I pulled out for this New Moon (shown at the beginning) says it all. I am posting an excerpt from the book that came with this deck, for additional guidance:

Now is the time to let anything in your life fall away that is no longer useful or needed for the emerging expression of who you are. Allow yourself to gradually shed what has become burdensome and no longer congruent with your soul’s purpose. …With release comes a sense of being much lighter, just like the trees that openly bare their nakedness once their leaves have departed and give room for whatever new Life is ready to birth following a period of quiet and gestation.

Swept-ember September 2017 Tarotscopes

IMG_20150531_191609The month of Virgo is generally a time when we are getting our house in order in the area of  life that the sign of Virgo rules in our natal birth chart.

In plainspeak it is a time to be industrious, diligent and conscientious in dealing with credit card bills, health matters, daily grind and obligations, employees, pets, enemies, frenemies, studiousness, discipline, phobias, and the factors that undermine the balance in our business and personal relationships. In the aftermath of the eclipses of August, this year, September will be the time to monetise, actualise or realise the promise of the new beginning that we were shown at the end of the month. The inspiration we got last month will now need the nuts and bolts to become reality. Even the most talented artist needs to put in the hours of practice, after all! (If you did not feel the energy of this new beginning yet, don’t worry, it is coming!)

‘Heavily Virgo’ people (with many planets in Virgo in their chart) love practice, discipline, industriousness so much that they can tend toward reclusion or on another extreme, escapism, prompted by the pressure they put on themselves. Beware the shadow side of perfectionism. Being so demanding of order and correct form as Virgo can be, it can also make us critical of others who don’t seem to match up to our own ideas of commitment and dedication. This can result in arguments, break ups, disease caused by overwork or overdoing discipline.

In that spirit, please remember to take these tarotscopes with a pinch of salt always. There’s no destiny you cannot avert through sheer hard work and self-discipline! Adopt the Virgo mantra this month: All suffering can be alleviated through service.

A Gust of August Tarotscopes

IMG_20170211_094340What turbulent weather we are about to have! The winds are gusting in, sweeping through our lives as inspiration, devastation, confusion, motivation, life, death, fear, hope, atrophy, ingenuity, a loss of bearings and the discovery of a new path.

This weather began with a New Moon at 0 degrees in Leo conjunct Mars in late July, and it continues through a Lunar eclipse at 21 degrees Aquarius on 7 August and a Solar eclipse at 28 degrees Leo on 21 August. Notice how the beginning and the end of the Leo sign are energised i.e., we are going through an entire cycle of recognising the spark of creative intelligence within us, feeling the collective unable to recognise its brilliance, and mastering its expression on our own, with or without an appreciative audience.

As the Solar eclipse trines Uranus in Aries, it’s about doing your own thing no matter how eccentric or odd it seems to the public. You shine in areas where mere mortals don’t tread!

If you have fear or anxiety about a particular area of your life then the eclipses along the Leo-Aquarius axis are telling you the solution lies in something that allows you greater self-expression and actualisation perhaps at the cost of your connection to an existing network, group, marketplace ideology or even system of doing things. This is a time of revelation and discovery. Perhaps something that is revealed about your associates or system of doing things goads you to go your own way and do what feels more like ‘you’. You may not want to keep going along with what your ‘group’ says any more. Leo and Aquarius are both creative, eccentric signs, but Leo channels creative intelligence towards self-fulfilment (and glory!) while Aquarius makes creative connections for the good of the collective. Something you were expecting your associates, network or ideology to deliver may not come through; people and systems may disappoint so you may finally get the drive to break away and do something that actually makes you feel alive. Too, a surprising turn of events might bring you the attention of an appreciative audience for a talent you did not even know you had!

Whenever there’s change in the air, there’s confusion, unease and anxiety — like when you anticipate the next descent of the roller coaster. Hang in there, it’s not as bad as it feels!

Fate versus Free Will

“Sometimes knowing your own future is what enables you to change it, especially if you’re bloody-minded, contradictory and completely unpredictable.”

—  Eleventh Doctor (Doctor Who, Ep. The Girl Who Waited) inadvertently summarising the purpose of astrology.

Don’t be afraid of family astrologers or passing-by psychics who seem to know your past and make a confident statement of your future. Prediction in astrology is projection based on certain trends observed in planetary patterns over thousands of years. Yes, those predictions often come true. Which is to say, history often repeats itself. And to the human experience, there are patterns everywhere. But there are aberrations too, as well as exceptions to the rule. Predictions don’t always come true.

Want to defy a scary prediction? Follow the path of most resistance. Take that uphill climb to deviate from your reflexive responses, or what you think are hard-wired tendencies — outwit the Universe’s guess of who you are. It’s not always the first answer you get when dealing with a rough situation, and it’s not always easy to do that which seems most unnatural to you. It’s not easy at all. But it IS that easy to change your destiny.

Will you let your destiny bring you to your knees or will you flip the story and defy gravity? 🙂

Pisces in September 2017

Hi, what up Pisces? Why are you hiding away from the world? We know you have something to share with us…an idea or a production perhaps? The good news is, if you show us what you have, we will give it the attention it deserves! So please don’t keep your vision or creativity to yourself!

There is a strong lack of faith and confidence coming through in your cards. Generally a sign that can hear the calling of the Universal consciousness beckoning you to a certain direction, at this time you might feel…unguided. Is it that your inner voice has gone silent and you can’t tell if the next step will take you to the right direction?

In whichever area of your life this confusion plays out, the Sun card as a ‘crossing card’ style Jumper is an encouraging sign…perhaps the sign you have been needing? 😉 Get out there and show the world what you have to show, speak your mind, express your feelings, make your presence felt! It is going to be good!

PS: If you are having doubts about someone’s affections for you, things will either right themselves and you will learn how much they truly adore you, OR you will learn to enjoy life on your own for a bit — all eyes will be on you!

Aquarius in September 2017

There is an overwhelming quality of ‘not knowing’, stagnation, stubbornness, self-created problems and pig-headed independence in your cards this month. It seems like what ought to have been an environment of healthy debate and academic discussion has now become a place of obstinately-held views and zealous self-propaganda. you could be facing this problem with your team of co-workers, squad of besties or classmates at school. It is also possible that someone is deliberately poisoning the group dynamic to achieve their own ends. (I hope this is not you!)

With all cards in reverse, there is definitely a perversion of energies in the air or generally, a sense of shooting arrows in the dark out of desperation and ignorance. The Jumper card suggests if there is a snake in your midst they will be outed soon. Take heart!

In general, the air of ‘not knowing’ will start to dissipate. It might be frustrating for you to have to deal with petty politics when you would rather be learning something new. But the situation might demand that you keep aside your own agenda and devote some time to ironing out the differences among the people around you.

The other interpretation of your cards is that you have so doggedly asserted your independence over others that you are now feeling isolated (even ostracised) and alone in your struggles. Perhaps it is time to open up to others? Perhaps it is time to communicate openly with them, without fear of being judged for your fears and ideas, and give their suggestions some time of day?

Some of you could well be in the initial phase of loosening up and reaching out. Good on you!

Capricorn in September 2017

Your reading is by far the most paradoxical and complicated this month. On the one hand the powerful World card indicates that you are at the threshold of a new era in your life — one where you comfortably sit in your power without denying others theirs.  New beginnings will transform the landscape of your life to reflect the more authentic, self-sufficient you! However, on the other hand, the Jumper card — the Hierophant sitting like a ‘crossing card’ as an influence that can go either way — seems to suggest your association to a group or allegiance to an organisation or code will have an influence over how things go. Although, the card could easily be indicating a person — an expert that people consult to ‘demystify’ rules, principles, concepts in some way — whose path crosses with yours. This person could introduce you to a new way of thinking or a new way of life that helps give some definition to where you are going next, aimless, blank slate as you may seem at this time.

In September you could be feeling out of sorts or emotionally cut off. Or you could be dealing with an individual who is like that. And it seems like you will have to deal with this first before you can hope for any progress. As mentioned before, either you need to associate with a new ideology or set of people to reinvigorate your emotional investment in life. Or you need to have it out with an individual or an authority figure and draw better boundaries between you before you can proceed to new horizons!

Beware of selfish behaviour that betrays your own principles or the team, group or association you belong to. Beware too of justifying your selfish actions as righteous and correct! Play nice, others around you are hurting too.

Sagittarius in September 2017

This month is going to be a fast-paced with one with a flurry of activity, people to meet, places to go, witty repartees and energising undertakings, just the way you like it! You are in your element and associating/matching wits with those who are helping you bring out the funnest parts of you! Look out! Conversational chemistry could lead also to some….ahem!….recreational biology! 😉

However, it is also possible that you find yourself engaged in a ‘battle between torches and swords’ — between might and enlightened thought. A pugnacious, supercilious individual could rub you the wrong way with their brazen words or even come in the way of any initiatives you might be enthusiastic about.

Good news is: The person you are enjoying the verbal sparring with simply adores you!

Not-so-good news is: The person making trouble for you will require you to tap into all that natural Jovian goodwill of yours and treat them with the same compassion you show everyone else!

The other word of caution is to not let the upswing in things go to your head. Don’t start stepping over others’ toes or breaking hearts in a frenzy to make the most of every moment.

Be louche not a douche! 😛

Scorpio in September 2017

Someone is being difficult, wilful and perhaps even secretive. It is likely this is someone you have a financial link with — an intimate/business partner, employer or even your money manager. Are they not giving you your dues? Do you feel left in the dark about something? Are they acting on their own in matters where you have a say too? It seems like this person is dealing with some money (or even health) concerns of their own that could be the reason behind their recent behaviour and general churlishness.

By the way, it is quite possible that all of the above also applies to you! Are you being the person described above? If so, then recognise that excessive self-absorption in your worries is making you a pain to be around. Scorpios characteristically like to play their cards close to their chest, even when there is no call to, and please understand that not being open and communicative for no reason can generate an air of intrigue that can lead to unhealthy anxiety in those close to you. Open up!

Either way, whether you are the troubled or the trouble, the advice this month is to act with grace. If you are dealing with the difficult party, treat them with compassion, give them some space and they will open up to you in their own time — they have security (financial or physical) concerns just now that are eating them up inside! If you are the curmudgeon in the equation, acknowledge it at least! For you the message of the Jumper card is: Someone wise and gentle is in your life to help you through this anxious time if you let them! Open up to someone’s assistance.

Libra in September 2017

You are being beckoned to a new journey. A new development takes place in the sphere of money, material comfort, physical health, and committed partnerships. But there does seem to be — albeit dissipating — a feeling of vulnerability in the mix. Fear of losses — a long shadow cast by your past — is taking the zing of enthusiasm out of what is beginning to blossom.

Since the Foundation card slipped deliberately to reveal The Lovers card underneath, I am inclined to say this has everything to do with another person in your life. Are you afraid your painful history with someone else will repeat itself with this person too?

The Ace of Pentacles is an especially encouraging card for your reading if you are feeling hesitant or anxious in any way — the suit of Pentacles in Tarot signifies things that last; that are made of solid stuff. So if you are thinking twice about making a financial or emotional investment, don’t! It is safe for you too proceed. If you don’t feel deserving of a new job offered to you, perish any thoughts of failure.

This is good. Things are good. Your indecisiveness has nothing to do with any real problems.

Virgo in September 2017

You’re the toast of the town, the blue-eyed boy, the belle of the ball, the centre of attention, the person of the hour! After a period of stalemate or reclusion (self-inflicted or enforced), you are emerging this month into a world that is celebrating you! Happy Birthday!

There is indeed something ‘new’ about the way you glow — something that reflects the inner work and self-care you have put in to become lighter of spirit, brighter of mind, and healthier of body.

While it could surely be a more social time for you, what might be the more important trend is that at this time, you will be feeling almost a sense of pronoia in the way the world conspires to meet you and your desires with reciprocity. Spiritually, you will feel alive!

The one caution from your Jumper card is to beware self-centred behaviour that disenfranchises others, or creates an unequal dynamic in your partnerships and associations. Bask in your own glory by all means, but also give others the time of day and their share of the spotlight. Otherwise, you might find the red carpet laid out for you very quickly pulled out from under your feet!

For a few of you there is a caution that a legal decision might not go in your favour; also that you must pay closer attention to anything where fine print or legalities are involved. Don’t worry though, the Sun card suggests any setback will be but a minor annoyance in the context of otherwise happy times.

Leo in September 2017

You might feel like things are not quite going your way this month. Mayhaps your initiatives won’t meet with the kind of success you were hoping for. Life might seem like an uphill climb at the mo but hey! After the rain comes sun…always!

If things are not proceeding as expected it is to give you a chance to plug any loopholes  in the situation. Look after your assets, and take a closer look at your unnecessary expenses. Look at how sometimes misdirected or misinformed action, or simply impulse leads you to failure.

Also look at how the more you push for something you want, the more it eludes you. Just as people are put off by pushy people, so are events at an energetic level put off by your impatience or over-eagerness. No one likes a used car salesman! 😛

This is a month for surrender — difficult as it may be to achieve — and to take a spectator’s perspective on your own life. Learn to laugh at your mistakes and don’t take the tragedies too seriously. The downs are here to help you appreciate the ups better!
