Tarotscopes April 2021

Fire Signs

Five of Wands / Kingfisher

Aries

This is your time to shine, Aries. Your season is in full swing, but remember not to burn the candle so fast that you run out of steam before the party even gets started. You don’t have to light every project on fire for it to be successful, and you don’t always have to argue in order to get your way. Remember that it is OK to go with the flow, trusting that the universe has got your back even when things get out of control.

Leo

Are you fighting your creative urges, Leo? There may be an idea or avenue of interest that is clamoring for your attention right now. You think it seems frivolous or embarrassing, or that it might lead you in an unproductive direction. Try exploring your whimsical urges, as silly as they may seem. You could be pleasantly surprised at the results. 

Sagittarius

Things may not always go as planned, Sagittarius, and there are times when you need to accept that and move on. Releasing your expectation of a planned outcome can sometimes clear the way for something better to come along. Instead of being disappointed or anxious that things didn’t work out, see this as an opportunity for even greater abundance to flow into your life.

Earth Signs

Two of Pentacles / Loon

Taurus

You may feel torn between two responsibilities right now. Which should get more of your attention and resources? Allow your inner guidance to inform your decisions. Don’t look so far into the future that it causes you anxiety. Instead, take the next step that makes you feel comfortable and in alignment with your values. Don’t worry about being productive; go at your own pace.

Virgo

There may be a decision or fork in the road for you right now Virgo, leaving you searching for clues as to which path you should take. On one hand, you have some familiar components that make it easy to plan ahead. On the other, there are many unknowns that pose possible risk but also great reward. Trust your instinct and remember that, while you are more self-reliant that you realize, don’t get locked into one way of doing things. Be fluid and go with the flow.

Capricorn

You are adept at juggling many things, Capricorn. No stranger to hard work, you are willing to keep many projects going at once in order to get the job done. Beware of keeping plates spinning in just because you can, however. If your instinct is suggesting a break or change of plans, go with it. You might find a more efficient means of approach if you are willing to experiment with following your inner wisdom.

Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)

Strength / Woodpecker

Gemini

You are prepared to stand up for yourself, Gemini, and pursue your goals with strength and fortitude. How will you harness the energy of this season to transform thought into action? You may benefit from a strategic plan that allows you to be flexible yet still move forward in the face of challenge. This may require you to step out of your comfort zone and put conscious effort into grounding your dreams in reality.

Libra

You may be inspired by indignant anger to act in the name of fairness or justice. You have an internal strength and fortitude that allows you to enter such conflict, but be sure to employ your good judgement and diplomacy as well. You do not want to dissipate your message simply to prove that you are right. Better to be understood than to force your opponent to give up in frustration.

Aquarius

You continue to desire new relationships and social groups to harness the culture and ideas of a new society. You have the unique ability to forge ahead with visions of a better tomorrow, and to form the scaffolding necessary to build those futures as you go. There is tension in this relationship, but perseverance will harness great results in the long run.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)

Nine of Cups / Canary

Cancer

You are more sensitive than most and have hard earned wisdom about your boundaries and preferences when it comes to relationships and emotional intimacy. It is hard work, but you try to hone your skills to use empathy as a tool of understanding, not an excuse to withdraw from the world. It is OK to assert your emotional needs, Cancer, and doing so may lead to greater emotional harmony and balance. People who may be too shy to speak up for their own needs may be inspired by your action.

Scorpio

No stranger to the depth and range of human emotion, you have learned to travel the deep waters of pain and sorrow as well as bask in the sunshine of pure joy. Riding these waves requires skill and determination that comes with time and practice. Do not hesitate to share what you have learned with others. Although it may seem that you live in a secret world that is hard to explain, folks may be able to identify and relate to more of your story than you realize.

Pisces

There is no one who knows how to heal another quite like you, Pisces. From your deep emotional well you fill the cups of others over and over again, and are renewed in the process. It is important, however, to remind folks that relationships are a two way street. People do not have to pour themselves into you if that is not their personality or inclination. They should, however, acknowledge that simply by being yourself you are acting in service of others and of humanity. Do not let your kindness be taken for granted and do not be afraid to remind others of the value of your emotional reservoir.

New Moon in Pisces – March 2021

Tarot reading + astrology for the coming moon cycle

Decks: Sharman-Castelli Tarot and my own Rock Star Oracle

This New moon carries intense Pisces energy, with Venus, Neptune, and the Sun clustered together with the moon in this sign. It is born in a watery dreamworld, field by fantastic visions of harmony and beauty. As the moon grows, we may discover parts of ourselves we did not even know existed. There may be a new understanding of shared values and how we see ourselves in the world.

This is the “Worm Moon” and ushers in a time of fertile growth. During this moon cycle, a new seasonal year will begin with the onset of Spring. This corresponds to the movement of the Sun into Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, and a symbolic new beginning. The energy of collective knowledge fuels this year’s cycle, as we learn to incorporate the lessons of the past year into our personal and, in turn, social lives.

We are rebelling against traditional ideas of religion, faith, and spirituality. There is a disconnect between existing traditions and values and new ideas that are coming into being.

We are torn between the comfort of our captivity and the discomfort of freedom. We walk a fine line between dancing with our demons and allowing them to run the show. At the same time, there is no benefit to be gained by ignoring these shadows altogether. We must learn to integrate all parts of the human experience in a path toward unity.

We have been juggling material resources, learning to use what we have been given. Without an influx of new beginnings, we have been resourceful, digging deep into our storehouse of knowledge and experience to make it through a difficult and long winter.

We are heading into a time of deep self-reflection, inner exploration, and shadow work that relates to our role in the collective. Much of the fear and trepidation that was present at the end of last year has dissipated and we experience a renewal of hope. The “light at the end of the tunnel” now shines brightly and we want to ensure it’s warmth reaches and sustains everyone.

We are hungry for nostalgia, we crave the comfort of the past, we hope that moving forward there will be some shreds of “the way things were.” There is still a lot of grief about the loss of normality that was brought about a year ago. Whether we feel good about the changes that ensued or not, there is still grieving to be done for all that has changed.

At the same time, we are more aware of the racism, classism, and other oppressive structures that have been once again highlighted as a result of our overall societal disruption. We desire a clean break from the past, but not one that forgets what we have learned. We want a new concept of being. A new beginning.

We are heartbroken in many ways by the lack of collective compassion. We are torn by the lack of empathy displayed by so many in our society and even across the globe. We hold a tremendous amount of grief for all that has been lost over the past year, both in lives and in a sense of stability. Even if we believe these changes are for the best, even if we have personally benefited from the current circumstances, there is still overall grief and adjustment to the massive change and loss.

Society overall, and perhaps even people in our own lives, still may not understand or believe the full implications of the pandemic. There are many defenses that shield people from the truth. Defense mechanisms that people use to keep the abyss at bay. But the darkness still exists, and it is necessary to stop and deal with the reality of our situation if we are to heal and move forward as a society and even as a species.

Our guides remind us that it is not helpful to act like a martyr or to hold a mindset of fear or scarcity. It can seem like there are not enough people working for social change or that there are not enough hours in the day or resources available to bring about desired change. It may be more helpful, however, to keep our eye on those things we are doing to create change, to heal ourselves, to learn about and act in service of anti-racism. There is no wrong way to travel our spiritual journey or exist in this lifetime. We are reminded that life is in many ways what we make it, and if we focus only on the problems we may lose sight of the actual solution.

We are on the cusp of a change in fortune, a prosperous new beginning. The new ideas we have planted send up promising new shoots. Despite our loss, opportunities for growth are on the horizon. It is up to us to use these emerging opportunities and a respectful and social responsible way.

Oracle: Leonard Cohen / Transcend
“Look Beyond Your Boundaries”
This is a time to abandon whatever is not serving you or acting in your best interest. Use the knowledge you gain from introspection and insight to fuel your decisions. Do not feel that you have to conform to old versions of yourself or to traditional ways of doing things, especially if they no longer suit your needs and desires.

ASTROLOGY

Ongoing Transits:

1/13-6/28 Saturn in Aquarius Square Uranus in Taurus
This ongoing transit challenges our relationship to group values and dynamics, and the structures that keep them together. New, practical realities emerge, but not without the destruction or dissolution of outdated ways of being

2/28-4/22 Sun Conjunct Venus in Pisces
During this transit we may gain some insight into our collective values. We begin to shape our ideas and emotions into action. As spring approaches so does our shared hope for a better future founded not on love and light but on purposeful, concrete plans for change. The roots of revolution begin to flower; results of invisible underground work are now seen on the surface.

3/3-3/19 Sun Conjunct Neptune in Pisces
During this transit, we have insight into new information. Secrets may be revealed. We may have insight into parts of ourselves previously unknown. We may learn to communicate in a brand new way.

3/5 – 4/6 Mars Trine Saturn
We may move forward in a structured way, perhaps a job promotion or some other traditional hierarchical ascent. Movement within and around existing structures has more fiery and intense energy during this time.

New Transits:

3/15 Mercury enters Pisces
We see the connection between dreams and, not necessarily reality, but the symbols we use to construct reality. The subconscious is seen, discussed, and recognized. We disconnect from established structures of language and time. The “time changes” we are magically gifted another hour in the day, emphasizing the constructed reality of time itself. the time only changes because we collectively agree it to be so.

3/16 – 3/31 Mercury in Pisces square Mars in Gemini
We may have the energy to speak what has been long suppressed. There may be an urge to change or disrupt aspects of the immediate environment in order for personal growth to occur. This growth may be based on dreamlike or deep personal visions. We may have the urge to communicate but be unable to, or our message may be misunderstood, perhaps based on lack of context.

3/20 Sun enters Aries / Spring equinox
This is the midpoint between the solstices, and it carries the energy of new beginnings. With the sun moving into Aries, we carry our lessons from the collective and allow them to fuel individual action. The last year has shown us how individualism, or thinking exclusively of our personal well being, is not a sustainable or desirable worldview when viewed through the lens of social justice. We now have a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we might show up in this new season.

3/21 Venus enters Aries
We move from dreaming about our values to connecting them to individual action. We see how our ego may or may not bring our dreams to life. Where can we help ourselves, and where are we getting in our own way? Don’t let the fiery energy of spring project you too far off course. Are you acting for the common good or for personal glory?

3/28 Full Moon in Libra
This full moon turns our eye toward a just and equitable recovery as we begin to “return to normal” and there is a strong desire to ensure that social justice is not forgotten as we begin to emerge from a long slumber.

3/28 – 5/6 Mars trine Jupiter
Expansive fiery energy will flow from Jupiter to Mars as it transits from Gemini to Cancer during these several weeks.

3/28 – 4/23 Mars square Neptune
We may be more concerned with our ego than with the collective good during this time, or at least feel a conflicting energy between the two.

New Moon in Aquarius – February 2021

Tarot reading + astrology for the coming moon cycle

Decks: Sharman-Castelli Tarot and Divine Feather Messenger Deck

READING :

written for the collective and informed by social justice

Our situation: Hermit (rev)

Events of the immediate past: Ten of Wands (rev)
Events of the near future: Five of Cups (rev)
What do we consciously want: Justice (rev)

The first thing I notice about this spread is the number of reversals (8 of 10 cards, and the 9th is read both ways). Nearly the whole spread is reversed, which makes sense considering the new moon is in the middle of a Mercury retrograde phase, and the new moon will transit Mercury during this 24 hour period.

During a retrograde the shadow side of issues related to the planet in question are revealed. There is an extra energy of discovery and new information is flowing quickly since Mercury relates to our thoughts and ideas. This information may relate to love and values, our faith and beliefs, structure and boundaries, thoughts and communication, and our emotions and feelings since so many planets are clustered together in Aquarius right now.

The overall energy of this moon is one of personal introspection. Since most action is slow or may result in frustration at this time, we are asked to turn instead to reflect on our current situation. If we must act, we are advised to do so slowly, deliberately, and with our eyes wide open.

We are also reaching a time of deep loneliness and isolation as a collective. Especially as Valentine’s Day approaches, we must once again face a “traditional” holiday in a completely new way. Whether we loved or hated this rather commercialized holiday, there is a great deal of cognitive work necessary to deal with the number of changes we are experiencing around it. And this is just one example of the multitude of adjustments we have had to make in the past year.

There is both joy and sadness in the wisdom we have gained through long stretches of relative isolation and massive disruption to our routine. We have a better idea of what we want, our values, and what is important to us. We are more discerning in our view on life. At the same time, the way forward is unclear, and we have no way of knowing whether the skills and wisdom we have gained thus far will serve us well in the future. Thus our greatest lesson is flexibility, resilience, and our own intuition in the face of changing circumstances.

One benefit of our recent experience is the ability to let go of what no longer serves us. We may have been fooling ourselves for some time,driven by the need to please others or an overactive ego, into believing that we could accomplish superhuman tasks. Reality has changed this perception, and we have learned, perhaps the hard way, that we can not do it all and that we must either release some responsibility or delegate it to others that we trust.

Another benefit of our personal growth is the ability to move on and not take things so personally. By focusing less on our personal ego, we are less apt to feel guilt at the state of society overall that prohibits us from taking real action to change the situation. This is a king of emotional fragility that we, as a collective, are learning to overcome through our individual healing work in response to trauma.

This moon has us focusing on social justice, specifically how we identify and deal with issues such as oppression, racism, abuse, and lies. Perhaps it is not a coincidence that the ex-president is in the middle of a second impeachment trial, in which there is a great deal of confusion on the part of his defense team and a huge onslaught of new information being brought out by the prosecution. These are Aquarian issues of social justice and accountability that must be addressed if we are to move forward in line with our core values as a collective.

During this moon cycle we will mine our own daydreams for the material to create a new reality. Those visions that seemed too far out to ever come to fruition are on the table now. What we have known is falling away and we are asked to look at our deepest desires for the answer as to how to move forward. There is an overwhelming sense of impending possibility, both in the physical and spiritual realm. It is exciting and challenging at the same time.

As a result of the ongoing change, the crumbling of sold structures, the demand to imagine new realities, and the multitude of things beyond our immediate control, we are left feeling quite unbalanced and unstable during this moon cycle. There is very little grounding energy here, so be sure to find those habits and practices that do make you feel connected in and to your body, such as exercise, gardening, dance, yoga, massage, or taking a bath. Without an anchor to stabilize us, we are forced to hold on to whatever we can in these rough and unpredictable seas.

A positive result of these uncertain times is the, perhaps unexpected, opportunity to for reconciliation and making amends. It seems as though even our opponents are humbled by the extreme and dramatic events of the past year and, without stable footing from which to make a stand, they have given up the fight. In laying down arms and disengaging from a fight that only exhausts both participants and leads to no real results there is at least the opportunity for understanding and conversation to begin. In the absence of active combat we may begin to heal.

Moving forward, we are advised to continue keeping the collective in mind when making decisions or starting new projects. If we have learned nothing in the past year, it is that individualism, rigid borders, and black and white thinking have nonplace in the Aquarian Age. We are warned against letting the overall instability of circumstances and our emotional reaction to them distance our behavior and generate more harm than healing. Much of the spiritual advice of this new moon consists of “slow down and tend to your own healing before you try to help others.” There will be plenty of time for structured collaborative work in the future. For now, we may best be served by continuing an inner exploration in which we treat ourselves with warmth and tender care. By practicing loving ourselves, we learn how we may serve the collective form a place of love.

This moon cycle promises to be one of great growth and insight if we do not struggle to move forward against obvious obstacles and red flags. The opportunity to reflect can be seen as a hindrance in the context of constant productivity, but it is actually a valuable gift providing much needed self-reflection that we can use to calibrate our next course of action. Without occasional reality checks, it can be difficult to align our dreams or goals with the necessary steps to make our dreams a reality. As we move through this month, look for those moments that bring you joy and hope. Reflect on why you appreciate such times, and use your insight to guide you in the direction of increased personal growth, self-care, and feelings of expansive possibility.

Oracle: Robin
Robin reminds us to look for new growth, even if the landscape appears barren at this time. Change brings instability but it also brings opportunity. We are asked to look beyond our current expectations and be open to possibilities for change and growth in areas where we may not necessarily expect it to occur. Sometimes what seems to be a weed is actually a flower delivered to your garden by the winds of chance, or forces of nature..

ASTROLOGY:

We begin this New moon with Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mercury and the Moon all in the sign of Aquarius.
Wednesday’s new moon is right in the middle of Venus-Jupiter-Mercury conjunction as Mars and Uranus remain in conjunction in Taurus.

As Uranus transits through Taurus, it forms a square or angle where the energy may be in opposition, with the planets in Aquarius.

As the moon transits each planet, we experience a different response based on our own natal chart combined with the overall planetary energies.

This new moon asks: what do we dream of as a collective and what resources do we have at our disposal to make that shared vision a reality? It also questions all of the structures and values that we have established, both personally and as a society, which must be transformed or destroyed to make way for a new way of relating to each other.

It is also the lunar new year, and we are reminded to turn the lens of social justice on all marginalized groups including Asian and Asian American communities where individuals are currently experiencing an increase in racially directed violence.

The following are my interpretations of some of the upcoming transits based on my knowledge of the planetary energy and this month’s Tarot reading:

2/14-3/4 Mercury Conjunct Saturn in Aquarius
During this transit period we are asked to expand the way we think. Mercury forces us to examine our thoughts and thought patterns, how we create meaning, and how we use language. Saturn is how we construct meaning from language and the structures and expectations we have about thought and its relationship to reality. From language we create our reality, and this relationship is being called in to question during the Aquarian age. We may have great breakthroughs or insights that seemed impossible in the past.

2/14 – 3/2 Mercury Square Uranus
This energy continues as Uranus forces us to break free of the structures that no longer serve us. What did we discover about thought and language as Mercury transited Saturn? We are now asked to use that information and take action on it, destroying the language and thought patterns that no longer meet our vision and beginning construction on a new collective reality.

2/17 Saturn Square Uranus
We experience challenges to what we think we must do in order to be accepted and part of a group. We may have clarity about our role in society yet question how to change our current circumstance. We experience both insight about our current boundaries and restrictions, and some interesting ideas about how they might be challenged or changed for the better.

2/18 Sun enters Pisces
Moving from the air of Aquarius into the dreamy water of Pisces, the light of the sun continues to guide the inner exploration of this moon cycle. Now we move from the cloud of thoughts and dreams to depths of feeling and emotional mastery.

2/20 Mercury Stations Direct
Just as a beam of light illuminates a cloudy day, or sunlight can be seen on the surface from underwater, some clarity comes to our current circumstance. We have been exploring the deep shadows for some time, and now we may be able to shine a light of discovery on what we found in our subterranean exploration.

2/25 Venus Enters Pisces
We begin to place new value on our own feelings and intuition. We see that we must loved ourselves in order to be loved. We know how to fill the cup of others, but also are learning to maintain our own reservoir from which to draw the healing waters of love.

2/27 Full (Snow) Moon in Virgo
Our values are fully revealed, and we are asked to examine whether the reality of current citation is in line with our dreams and desires. How are we engaging with the physical world, our bodies, and our resources? This moon shows us where we may focus our energy to be the most efficient and effective in making any adjustments we find necessary at this time.

2/28-4/22 Sun Conjunct Venus in Pisces
During this transit we may gain some insight into our collective values. We begin to shape our ideas and emotions into action. As spring approaches so does our shared hope for a better future founded not on love and light but on purposeful, concrete plans for change. The roots of revolution begin to flower; results of invisible underground work are now seen on the surface.

3/3 Mars enters Gemini
We may be more assertive with our thoughts and aggressive with our opinions. We may have lightning insight or act without thinking things through. We may tend to want to debate for the sake of argument, and no real solution.

3/3-3/19 Sun Conjunct Neptune
During this transit, we have insight into new information. Secrets may be revealed. We may have insight into parts of ourselves previously unknown. We may learn to communicate in a brand new way.

As we enter this moon cycle, there is a great deal of relief and celebration about not only a change in the year (goodbye, 2020!) but a change in governmental administration as well. Although the excitement about wins in Georgia has been greatly hampered by the tragic events at the capitol last week, there remains a feeling of accomplishment and optimism that now, finally, we may see changes that directly impact the quality of everyone’s lives.

We know there is a great deal of work ahead, but I am reminded of the “New Deal” that put Americans to work after the Great Depression. Because we are moving into a new age of ideas and communication, however, I think these kinds of initiatives will come as much from lateral community networks of support as they will from government initiatives. Both are needed, as clearly we have a long way to recover from our current challenges. But recovery is an opportunity to ensure the support and success of all people in a structure where power is shared laterally instead of via a hierarchical structure. We hardly know how to build such a culture – we are mere apprentices to our dream and ideas at this time.

We have grown weary of trauma, of worst-case scenario thinking, of nightmare thought. We want to break free from worry, to turn our vision toward hope and create new dialogue based around possibilities instead of problems. We are ready to discuss openly what must be done to bring about a just society.

We have many tough choices to make. Folks are being asked to recon with their values and determine if they are acting in alignment with their beliefs. Moving forward, we are asked to tolerate uncertainty. We must learn to live in the fog of the in-between, the space between what was and what has yet to come into being. This is an in between time, of yes, and… In which we have our feet in two realities, past and future, at the same time.

We feel ill-equipped to address this nebulous future with our current structures. We want our speech to encourage, not inflame; to express our values and intentions clearly. We want to communicate with new lateral networks, creating new structures of power.

Despite our overall optimism, there exist many defeatist attitudes, ideas of fatalism, and talk of the end of the world. This is indeed the end of one cycle of the world, one turn of the wheel, one cycle of humanity. We must remember that cycles of rest and resistance are necessary for the long haul. The fight for social justice, the dismantle racism, and to center love in our values is a long anchallengin one. There is no end line, only engagement. We must rest in order to rise again in support of the future we want to create.

For better or worse, more instability is on the immediate horizon. Now that we are seeing many of the “hidden mechanisms” of oppressive culture, we grow increasingly intolerant of such structures. We are in a true Tower moment, when things as we know them are falling away and we are being asked to gently release them, even though we have no idea of what may come next.

There continues to be little solid ground in the traditional sense, so we must create our own stability through self-care, establishing and nurturing supportive relationships, enacting proper boundaries, carefully evaluating our flow of resources, and engaging in meaningful work in support of the greater good.

Oracle: Divine Magic
There are significant astrological transits at play in this moon cycle. We can expect dramatic and astonishing events. Magic is everywhere around us. It is our resilience, our ability to ensure the challenges of this human life. As this full moon cycle grows and wanes, imagine the kind of transformations that bring about your wildest dreams of utopia.

Decks: Sharman-Caselli Tarot and Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle

ASTROLOGY:

This is my first attempt at giving energy readings for the coming planetary transits. I am very new at this so take it with a grain of salt. Please take what resonates with you (and let me know if you see a mistake, I’m learning 🙂 )

1/13
New Moon in Capricorn
The theme of this moon cycle is changing structures and ideas about authority.

1/14
Mercury moon conjunction in Aquarius
Our dreams take form, we can describe what we have imagined, the abstract becomes personal

Tension between expansion and change

1/19
Sun enters Aquarius

Networks and communication are highlighted

1/21
Moon – Mars – Uranus conjunction in Taurus

We may feel some anger or resentment about the changes we are going through. There may be continued violence and protest events as power dynamics shift away from a dying regime. There may be eruptive, grassroots, volcanic-like energy.

1/23
Saturn conjunct Sun in Aquarius

We begin to see how the new administration will take shape, what structures are forming, what kind of support is available and what kinds of action we can take.

1/28
Full (Wolf) Moon in Leo

2/10
Around this date, six planets (Sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn) are all clustered together in Aquarius.

There are bound to be huge transformations in communication and social structures. We may experience a mass shift in how we view reality. Perhaps the UFOs will arrive. At this point, everything is on the table. What is clear is that we cannot cling to baggage, trauma, or old cultural ideas that are rooted in systemic racism. We must truly embrace equality, which will require a dramatic shift away from the hierarchical value system that is at the core of much of our current imbalance as a society. Expect a renaissance of ideas and action surrounding the creation of a new Aquarian Age through the middle of February.
