You're feeling happy and expressive in the coming week. You have everything you need to create something for someone special. It might be a meal or it might be something sewn or something put together with a hammer and nail. In any case, it's made by you. The only caution here is expecting too much of a response from the other party. This won't buy you love but it could certainly brighten the day of someone who is feeling down or overwhelmed. It allows them to refocus on your relationship.
It's time to break out of any self-imposed seclusion and meet with someone who you feel a spiritual connection with. I feel like Taurus's who have a long -distance or internet love interest will make the commitment and take the risk of meeting in person. The other person may be too shy to make the first move but once you do, they will be on board with your plan.
Someone is nit-picking and it's driving you crazy. Or maybe you're the OCD partner of this pair? I doubt it but it's a possibility. In any case, whoever is the more laid back of the pair is being driven made by excessive attention to detail, whether in housework or date arrangements. It's past time to ask yourself if this person can make you happy? Is this a momentary obsession or the way this person operates. Another possibility here is that someone is expecting a baby and their nesting instincts are going to extremes, especially in terms of cleanliness and order.
Someone perceives you as mystical and nurturing. You have an aura of kindness and knowledge that is attracting someone. Question whether this person sees you as a mother figure? Is that what you want in a relationship? You may also have an intuitive sense of the goodness or genuineness of someone new who comes into your life. Pure intentions get your attention and make you curious, perhaps pulling you out of what you expected to be a near-permanent state of inner meditation.
Yes, you can handle it all, job and house and children. You're even able to be circumspect when a partner gets angry at you for not doing it the way they want it done. But you may just have to remove that person from your busy agenda until they learn to appreciate you. Maybe that will motivate the person to help rather than criticize. This is a minor altercation or annoyance but could have long term repercussions depending on whether you nip it in the bud or let it ride.
A person who is willing to help you get things spic and span and organized not only warms you heart, it makes you hot, Virgos. Shower this person with approval and they're likely to do it again. If you are the one doing the cleaning and organizing, don't underestimate how attractive someone finds this. It's may seem like a funny sort of lure or strategy for arousal but you won't be the first to get someone to understand that the more quickly things are tidy, the more quickly you can mess up the bed.
Someone is trying to scare you into doing something in an oblique way. They're not going to come out and make a threat but they may drop hints about their background or what happened in the past. Take these things seriously but keep your cool. It's primarily boasting and being calm and centered will show them that you're not one to be intimidated. On a more practical note, some of you may be buying some cutlery that makes you happy. I know a Libra who loves swords. Now who is the intimidating one?
You're creating castles in the sky and projecting how one thing will lead to the next and the next. It doesn't hurt to dream but if your dream involves another person, it's not going to be possible until you know the other person is on board. I worry that you're setting yourself up for disappointment. Some of you might be stocking a home bar and dreaming of who you will entertain with it. Others may have more than one person that is attracted to them and are wishing they could divide into more than one person to have them all.
This week may be all work and no play. Plans may be interrupted. Keep in mind that you can push back a date. It's not the end of the world. However, if all work and no play has become a habit and others keep heaping more on the wonderful little worker that you are, it's time to reclaim some of your fire for yourself and recreation rather than spending it all on work or the demands of others. There is a rainbow of hope here but you've got to take a break and the time to look up and see it.
I am using two non-traditional decks and the two cards are strikingly similar with the same arm gesture by the figures in them. It's the look of delight at a surprise, such as an unexpected visitor or gift. You are with someone who knows how to make you smile and glow. What could be better! Soak up the good energy.
Someone is trying to stay in your life by being dramatic or engaging in little annoyances that get your attention. This week you're going to sweep them out of your life, every last speck out of your environment. You're not going to tolerate invasion of their energy anymore, not an email, not a facebook poke. You're a blithe and breeze no tolerance zone. It's not a matter of spite; it's a matter of freedom from an influence you no longer want in your life. Purify to clear your energy.
You're going to meet someone this week who makes you feel giddy. For now it may be more of an intellectual affair. Only time will tell if it will eventually involve more of your body. For now, enjoy a sense of mental freedom and excitement. Fantasies and intuition have allure for you. On a more practical note, be aware that even a small amount of alcohol or any sort of intoxicating brew could have an over-sized affect on you this week. Indulge only with those you feel completely safe with.
I'm using the Tarot Illuminati for today's reading.
There are a lot of swords from morning through afternoon so the meat of our day could involve friction. The evening, thankfully, is a different matter altogether.
In the morning watch out for someone playing a practical joke on you. Someone is doing something sneaky that is more childish and irritating. Their intention is amusement but that isn't likely to be how it hits you. Two people who should be friend or who have things in common end up at odds or perhaps simply unable to communicate. Maybe try again another day. Don't give too much weight to conflicts at this time. They're more likely to be miscommunications than real differences.
In the afternoon, we're very tempted to jump into something out of frustration. Part of us feels that rushing in is the best action for advantage and and the more prudent part of our mind is building a bulwark of reasons to stand still. It's probably best to do nothing until you become less conflicted. We do have the Fool card here, though, so any errors won't likely have dramatic or long term consequences. Some people may end up jumping from the fire into the frying pan. It feels like movement but you really haven't gotten anywhere.
The evening is quite a relief. We have the Lovers card so get together with someone who is a good match for you, whether a friend or a romantic partner. Entertaining at home is featured. Indulge in plenty, a big meal and fancy fixings. There's a sense of extravagance here. This is a good evening for getting pregnant for those of you for whom this is a goal. For those wanting to avoid pregnancy, be extra careful. We have seed-planting energy here. It could just mean that people are likely to start physical relationships. If you're in a stable relationship, you may try something new in your lovemaking.
I'm using the Herbal Tarot for today's reading.
The Sun is at the center of this day's reading, which imbues the day with positive energy. This group of cards also has the most upright cards of any of this week's readings. Either a rough phase has ended or we're getting a day of rest from it.
In the morning, someone is feeling restless. Our minds may be wandering toward future plans for challenges, trips or moves. We could be career planning in the back of our minds as we go about life. Someone is feeling depressed or emotionally unstable. Challenging this person will only make them withdraw further. If someone around you is feeling bad, loading them down with a bunch of ideas about how they shouldn't feel bad won't help. This person is not in a rational state of mind and is feeling defeated before you begin. In this state, they are not able to move forward. Give it time.
In the afternoon, we are able to refresh ourselves. Get outside if the weather is nice. Nourish yourself. Maybe do some yard work. What would be a burden at other times may lift your mood today because it gets the blood flowing and makes you feel accomplished.
In the evening, one person is contemplating his or her emotional needs while another is thinking about house, yard, and all of life's practical things. These could even be two sides of ourselves that we're trying to satisfy at the same time or choose between. They are at odds somehow. It results in another night when sleep may be disrupted by worries or a busy mind.
I'm using the Ghetto Tarot for today's reading.
In the morning, we are feeling emotionally helpless. A strong person may step in and take charge of a situation. This is beneficial and will help pull us out of our victim mentality so that we can see a way forward. It's a rough morning but it ends well.
By the afternoon, lady luck is turning in our favor. Boundaries are dropped or our guard is down. There is a lack of judgment and we are in a "no looking back" mood. We are willing to let an issue rest.
In the evening, we are feeling emotionally overwhelmed and just can't take another drop. Doing something practical will help but if you get too much in your head about your progress or evaluating a situation, it will continue into the night and interfere with your ability to sleep. There's a sense of wondering if you've done the right thing.
I'm using the Voyager Tarot for today's reading.
In the morning, we've got sunshine, if not literally then in spirit. It's a great way to start the day. We feel purified, new, and brilliant. There's a sense of spiritual clarity. Some of us may suddenly realize our purpose in life or we may be cleared of some past guilt or niggling worry. It's a straight and beautiful way to start the day.
In the afternoon, this is a time for an evaluation of how we have changed, how the world is changing around us and of our abilities. We are capable so what keeps us from acting. Look for both negative and positive patterns in our behavior and how we react to circumstances. This is a time for fully acknowledging ourselves, both the good and the bad. So a rather deep afternoon after a glorious morning.
In the evening, we continue to look inward. Our intuition may allow us to look into others as well. We understand that things are changing even though we may not understand how. Many things are shifting. It may be hard to keep track of them all, which is why using intuition works better than logic. Working with others may improve our intuitive or psychic skills. Part of our new understanding may be that something is not working out and we indulge in some grief in knowing that it must end. Even if all of the synergy is good, we may end up feeling depleted. Check in with yourself about early clues to getting overwhelmed so that you know when to quit and create boundaries in general.
For today's reading, I'm using the Prairie Tarot.
In the morning, a normally kind man is disappointing or manipulative. This is a time of delays in transportation so it could be that this person is late to something, especially something that requires a performance of some kind. Victories or accolades are also delayed or someone performs poorly. It's definitely an awkward start to the week.
Thank goodness we have the Star card in the afternoon, This gives us hope and healing. Our worries are allayed. A competent, if somewhat technical and stiff, person comes to our aid. Rules and procedures are important to abide by in the afternoon.
In the evening, we may be feeling a little under the weather or that we don't have all of the resources we need, but we are safe. Those less fortunate will be taken care of but perhaps won't be at home or there is some dampening of normal family happiness. I feel there are prayers for someone's speedy return.
For today's reading, I'm using the Mystical Cats Tarot.
In the morning, we're letting go of some of our possessions or are less interested in investing energy in guarding them. The result is a sense of freedom and possibility instead of constriction. Along with this comes a bit of ungroundedness or some grumpiness from someone who doesn't like change.
In the afternoon, we have more clarity about what needs to be done and about boundaries in particular. Beware of someone without good impulse control who could cause real damage if left unchecked. Some people may have to assert boundaries aggressively to get a point across. A time of feeling left of out home and community care is coming to an end. Those who have felt excluded begin to be invited into the inner circle.
In the evening, things finally come together. This is lovely energy after the potential conflicts of the afternoon. Someone who has felt put out because of ill fortune (perhaps brought on by their own carelessness) is getting over it. Praise and being in good graces are the evening's highlights. It's important that everyone know that they're valued and wanted. Then give yourself some much needed time out to process things yourself. It's a good time to review the week as a whole but the events of the day particularly. What wisdom can be gathered for the road ahead.
For today's reading, I'm using the Enchanted Map Oracle.
In the morning, we get a slow start, possibly being mired in some routine that isn't advancing the day. We do eventually break free of it. If it's a nice day where you are, consider getting outside early in the day as it will refresh and invigorate you. And you're going to need it because just as you power up, you're struck with some obstacle or problem that requires either energy or ingenuity to get past.
Alas, the trials continue into the afternoon. If you're traveling, plan on blockages. If you're going to visit someone, you may find them in a foul mood. You yourself may be in a stay-at-home-and-hiss-at-visitors mood. Going shopping may relieve some stress. Or to see a movie. If you're athletic, go for a run or a swim. Get a massage. The key is to give yourself some release after tackling the earlier trials. You deserve a break. It's Saturday after all.
In the evening, someone is jumpy or scared of largely imaginary or temporary things. Offer nurturing to make both them and you feel better. Know that it's part of a growing process. We may be nurturing other projects along in the evening as well. We may also receive the help or reassurance of someone older. As the evening winds down, we're taking our own paths. This could be the reading of a book about something we want to do or sitting down and planning a trip or simply journaling about the week and planning next steps for the coming one.
You're the boss of it this week, Aries. No surprise there except that what you're the boss of is the search for someone who is hiding from a hurt. This may be a wound suffered in a relationship with you or some other source. It could even be that you have an interest in someone who is withdrawn due to the bad ending of an affair. So you are the boss and you have the instincts to find this person but your approach, once you've found the person, must be delicate and sensitive. Another possible scenario is that you are taking charge of your own psyche in order to locate your own internal hurt self that's been hiding but making you feel like you have a hole in your soul.
It's time to wake up to your desires and their repercussions. You've been trying to deny what you want but it's in there, Taurus and even if you're trying to be in denial, other people are sensing what you want and are likely to use it to manipulate you. Wake up! Don't pretend to be asleep. Don't do things and then then pretend you didn't know what you were doing and thus shouldn't be held accountable. Nope. It's not going to slide. Better to own up to what you want. Declare it and find someone who feels the same. You may think it's something forbidden or unethical or kinky. Put your judgements aside. If you're in a partnership, talk to your partner about it. See how your partner responds. If single, move forward into what you want. Again, until you do these things, admit your to yourself and others, you leave yourself open to manipulation as others use what they sense you want for manipulation.
You're having a low week, Geminis. Give yourself nurturing. Protect your heart. You're just not in a good place to put yourself out there. If you have a partner, ask them to give you space or to act as a buffer so that you will have some private time. You need to allow yourself some healing time. This may be about a health problem or some loss that his hit you hard and you need to grieve. It may have to do with a relationship but my feeling that it's something else that's having an indirect effect. You need to take care of yourself and release some grief before your heart can be available to others.
A flirtation is coming to an end or perhaps going underground. In other words, someone is admiring you from afar or secretly. This could be a biracial situation. It has some potential but it may never get off the ground because there is some difference between you (could be any number of things, not simply race) that makes one or both of you hesitant. It could be that you are feeling attracted to someone you feel that you don't dare approach. Give this time. Either an opportunity to become close will open up or it won't. It doesn't feel earthshattering either way. Be at peace with what is.
Leos, you have your eye on someone that you want to entertain. This is a soft, gentle person that brings out your best nurturing traits. You're wanting to impress them with how entertaining and hospitable you can be. First of all, let me say that they have to love you for who you are on the inside not just the display you can put on on the outside. This person likes you and also has the ability to see through you and deeply into you. Be ready for that level of intensity. You may have an urge to water it down. If you do, you'll likely lose this person. This person understands that hospitality is not just show but a spiritual principle of being willing to let people into your space, your heart, your life. That's what this person is looking at, or for, in you. I believe you're up to this person's high standards so long as acknowledging your own awesomeness doesn't make you so uncomfortable that you self-sabotage with humor or diverting the focus onto something facile.
Virgos, someone is watching you that you think of as a snake, or perhaps simply a blowhard. This person thinks they can lure you away from your principles or what you're committed to with a sly smile and a twist of their mustache. This person clearly doesn't understand Virgos. You reaction is somewhere between annoyance and amusement. You could probably manipulate this person better than they can manipulate you. They see your Virgo purity or shyness as innocence. This is where they have you dead wrong. You make your choices knowing what you are gaining, what you're sacrificing and what you're risking. You may have a mild interest in this person, primarily because having someone attracted to you is flattering. But your primary response will be "no, thank you" and a brush off.
Something is wrong with an otherwise good relationship. Speak your truth. Say what you see. Speak from inner wisdom. Ask as well. Are there needs not being met? What expectations for the future have not materialized? What does the other person see as the reason to have a strong partnership? What great virtue do the two of you express together?
You've wanted to be the charming, dashing, risky, a bit foolish courtier, but you're giving it up this week for someone who truly needs you, likely a friend or relative. So your love this week is going to those in need, those who need your strength, your ingenuity, your great courage during difficult times, especially emotionally difficult times. So the courtier is put on hold for the week to respond to a deeper need. A more psychological interpretation of these cards is that you're putting aside surface romance and are finally admitting your own deeper need for love, perhaps even of being rescued yourself.
You're having a lovely reunion or rendezvous, Sagittarius. This is a union of two people whose hearts beat as one. You are free to be as fiery as you want and indulge every form of passion. You have a partner who is perfectly willing to indulge you. This is the happiest reading of the week thus far. Enjoy!
Someone isn't just whistling dixie, Capricorns. This person hold a torch for you. At the moment, it's more passion than love, but this is a person of high morals and a light spirit so what starts out as physical attraction could easily become something deeper, sincere and long-lasting. Other Capricorns may discover that their partner is attracting amorous attention, whether intentionally or unintentionally. Have a talk with a partner to let them know how their behavior may be misinterpreted by others as availability. You don't want to stifle them entirely but perhaps help them see how to set limits or drop hints about their relationship status to prevent misunderstandings.
Something hasn't worked. It's like neither being assertive has worked and letting things ride hasn't worked. This week you're stepping back to ask yourself how you got into this situation, whether it's a particular kind of relationship or an ingrained way of responding that you know doesn't work. Of all the signs, you are the best one to find a new and healing way. Trace the pattern but don't get stuck there. It's time to engage your Aquarian ingenuity and imagination create a new solution to an old situation.
It looks as though a marriage isn't going through and yet this is giving you a sense of great peace. It may not be as dramatic as a broken engagement. It could be that a party is called off or that some other commitment, whether social or a relationship, has been called off. I feel like this is something new. Maybe you had decided to be exclusive with someone and almost immediately decided that was a poor idea. In any case, having your own space gives you a new (or perhaps old) sense of calm and self-completeness (if that's a term). Part of this happiness may be in recognizing that you made a good decision to step out of something that wasn't feeling right for you. Congratulations, Pisces. Peace!
For today's reading, I'm using Tarot Illuminati.
Hmm. I didn't realize this was going to be a Friday the 13th until I typed in the title for this post. Well, let's see what the cards say.
In the morning, we are feeling rich, as though we have everything we need to provide for everyone we love. Take some time to reflect on the past, especially past struggles. It is time to create a strategy for the future, one that expands our horizons and provides us with more resources.
The afternoon is a time to concentrate on getting things done. Don't be surprised if romantic gestures are rebuffed at this time. It doesn't mean that anything is wrong with a relationship. It's just that one person is focusing on work or a project. Another person may be feeling left out or or just out of sorts. Watch out for careful or subtle manipulation intended to move a situation in someone's favor.
This evening needs to be one of rest and healing. Realize that any moodiness is exhaustion. It may be mental exhaustion or emotional exhaustion if you feel well physically. We may be unable to make decisions or that our options are now limited. Again, this is a product of the moment. We have the Star card on our side. Know that there is a way and we have a purpose and that healing is coming. It will come all the faster if you acknowledge that there's a need. Know that there are things we haven't tried, tricks we haven't pulled out of our bag yet. Also know that it doesn't have to happen today. Rest and let it be for another day.
On this blog page, I'll post weekly and daily draws, and share my knowledge of and experiences with cards, decks and spreads.
