Willful Rectitude • May 2019 Tarot and Astrology Forecast

Tarot and Astrology Santa Fe, New Mexico

 

 

May is a great month for taking empowered action in our lives.  It offers the potential for the growth of our confidence through mental strength and acuity.  This can be seen in the dance between thoughtful diligence and the will to act and achieve results.  It is a month for taking another step forward towards our understanding of how love acts as a binding ingredient, uniting the dance between the two.

 

Gains and Losses • April 2019 Tarot and Astrology Forecast

For everything you have missed, you have gained something else, and for everything you gain, you lose something else.

This Ralph Waldo Emerson quote is the closest I can come to adequately describe the energy of the month ahead, condensed into a sentence. 

Now • March 2019 Monthly Forecast • The Circle and the Dot Tarot & Astrology

If you look at the cards below, you will see the Tower.  I am happy to see the Tower show up for the month of March in honor of the Uranus ingress into the sign of Taurus on March 6th, its new home for the next seven years.

Uranus shakes the foundations of what it encounters, bringing forth liberation, originality, and authenticity through the use of sudden or unexpected change.  The sign of Taurus represents the earthy, the grounded, and the sensuous.

Where we find Taurus in our chart, we see where we obtain our security and comfort.  It is a sign of the earth and represents what is stable and slow to change.  Therefore, the secure, quiet, slow, and passive (yet powerful), encounters the radical, rebellious and unconventional maker of change.

Tending to the Receptive Vessel of the Soul • January 2019 Monthly Forecast

Happy new year!  I hope 2019 is a year filled with great prosperity, pleasure, and delight for us all.

One of the most predominant themes for the year ahead is the idea of expansion and contraction.  The living, beating heart, its rhythmic squeezing and swelling, will have the chance to harmonize with what is increasing and decreasing in our lives.

Astrologically, the planet that demonstrates where we experience decrease is Saturn; Jupiter is representative of what expands, bringing forth abundance.  Both planets are in their home sign for almost the entirety of the year ahead, meaning they have the freedom to fully act according to their natures without much interference.  Therefore, like the beating of the heart in the center of our being, the rhythm these two planets create will ripple through the center of our lives.

Wisdom Through Contemplation • December 2018 Monthly Forecast • the Circle and the Dot

 

As each year winds to a close, we are given the opportunity to slow down and contemplate the nature of our inner reality.  When the light of the Sun is furthest away and the days feel cold, brittle, and short-lived, we can maintain a close contact with this source of illuminated vitality by connecting with the Light within.

This opportunity for contemplation becomes most pronounced at the Winter Solstice point, the time of Saturn.

 

 

 

 

 

General Theme of the Month – The Hermit

When Purpose and Discipline Align • November 2018 Monthly Tarot Forecast

The Circle and the Dot Tarot and Astrology

This November marks the beginning of a window of opportunity seldom available to us.  Beginning November 8th and lasting for a little over a year, the planet Jupiter will be making an ingress into his home sign of Sagittarius. Jupiter, the planet of vision, opportunity, adventure, and good fortune, wishes to see things grow and come to fruition inn our lives.  He represents the faith and trust required to take a leap into the unknown. 

Revisioning Through Revisiting • October 2018 Monthly Tarot Forecast

tarot Santa Fe New MexicoThis month, we are being given the opportunity to explore our deep emotional roots from our past, exploring how they inform our lives today.  We can use this time for review to see if our past emotional material is shaping our future in a healthy way or if we need to consciously reorient ourselves so we may forge new emotional territory that is better suited to who we wish to become. 

In other words, people, events, strategies, memories, or emotional content from our past may reappear at this time for examination.  How have they informed who we have become?  How much influence do they still have over who we are BECOMING?  Is our current relationship with our past healthy?

Another Level of Unfolding Fruition • August 2018 Monthly Tarot Forecast

 

the Circle and the DotA while ago, I came to the conclusion that since the intensity of the moment rarely seems to cease, that we must have always had intense times.  Doesn't it seem to always feel that times are intense? There always seems to be some sort of "transformative moment" taking place.  Why is this?  How could it be that every month, every day, every moment, is transformative?  I started doubting if this was truly so, adjusted my expectations, and told myself that the "simpler times" of my youth may have been so only because freedom youth brought to me.  My excuse for expeiencing life differently now was that everything must seem simpler when we are young, innocent and naive.
