Tarot Horoscope: September 2018

Interesting enough, the Arcana of the Month is The Hanged Man, since the Sun is in Virgo until September 23, the beginning of autumn. Virgo is known for its abilities to classify, analyze, and edit. She looks at what works and what doesn’t; how can she improve something in order for it to function appropriately. That’s why she pays lots of attention to details. When these traits are taken to an extreme, it can lead to obsessive-compulsive tendencies or perfectionism because she’s afraid of making mistakes. Nonetheless, it is a sign of humility, service, and work. It is through routines and disciplines that stability and success is achieved. It’s important to keep it in balance by not losing sight of the final destination, the purpose. Despite being a very practical sign, Virgo is also very spiritual.

The Hanged Man is an interesting Tarot card because it means that in order to find the answers you are seeking, you must see things and circumstances through a new lens, a new perspective. It also represents sacrifice and restrictions. Virgo is related to this arcana through a keyword: purification.

During the month of September, it will be crucial to innovate, think differently, find solutions where we usually don’t look for them, and eliminating old patterns and beliefs. The Hanged Man is the Tarot card of liberation because knowledge sets you free. Let’s look for unconventional ideas, new ways of thinking, and see life in an innovative way.

Even though sacrifices need to be made in order to achieve our desires, we must not forget what is it that leads us to freedom, to a better world.

On September 9, the New Moon is in Virgo. It is a perfect day to set intentions related to health and work. On September 24, the Full Moon is in Aries, when we’ll feel more active and enthusiastic for new beginning. Be careful not to do things at the last minute. Continue reading

Tarot Horoscope: August 2018

The Emperor is the yan or the masculine side of The Empress, the arcana of the month of July. It is the conqueror, the one who expands horizons. Likewise, it is the ruler of an arid and hostile land full of challenges.

The Emperor is a card ruled by Capricorn. This is the zodiac archetype that talks about reaching our goals, our professional career, and how to face challenges without letting fears stop us.

During the month of August, we must not only set goals but we will work hard, with a lot of discipline and effort towards them. These goals may be related to our profession or to a relationship that we want to develop, but, above all, it has to do with our life purpose.

Capricorn rules the highest point of our natal chart. It is a sign of earth and is what allows us to materialize our dreams, ideas and desires.

This month is ideal to be practical and to work very hard. We have to bear in mind that in August we have an eclipse on the 11th and that we are still going to have Mercury Retrograde. Therefore, particularly in this first half of the month we will be reviewing our plans. It is a moment to reflect and review those aspects that perhaps have not been working out and we have to reconsider them. Perhaps, we must change the plans, maintaining the goals, especially with issues related to creative projects and romance.

We will be thinking about how our talents and interests can serve us to shine and promote those projects that we are working on and that we hope will be carried out successfully later on. In terms of relationships, we will reflect on who our true friends are.

During this month, there may be break-ups in relationships or we may experience an unbalance wherever we are standing. The essential thing to avoid acting impulsively and to know that matters are not going to move with the speed that we want.

The solar eclipse of August 11 in the sign of Leo speaks of our conscious side and how we express and project ourselves to others. Leo expresses joy and fun, but it will shake us if we are not expressing our authenticity creatively. This eclipse is going to bring down things that gave us a false sense of stability and that in turn prevented us from being ourselves. Continue reading

Full Moon Horoscope in Sagittarius: May 21 – July 4

The last time the New Moon was in Gemini was on May 17, 2015. During that tie, you began to leave behind those things that gave you a false sense of mental security. Now you realize that after so much research, studying, and getting knowledge from the outside world, what really matters is the knowledge that comes from within. You’ll learn that “truth” is relative and individual and now you not only formulate your own truth, but you experience it. There is a lesson of authenticity, to be true to your truth. For that to happen, a time of solitude for reflection is important so you don’t contaminate your thought with someone else’s, to not confuse your inner voice with someone else’s. In the end, you make your own decisions and suffer or enjoy the consequences. Sometimes, these decisions are difficult because, in order to build your own truth, you must discard the one that is not working for you anymore. Remember that the last New Moon in Taurus, which happened two weeks ago, made you reevaluate your values, those things that are important and non-negotiable for you. And in order to create tangible results with new values means that your old belief system prevents you from growing, which results in modifying or changing it completely to adjust to your new reality. Today’s Full Moon in Sagittarius, which its effects last until the next Full Moon in Cancer on July 4, support you on developing your self-confidence along with other planetary aspects, such as Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius — to define your limits and your truth — and Mars Retrograde in Sagittarius, and later in Scorpio until May 27 — to avoid reacting because of fear of seeing your truth destroyed. The second Full Moon in Sagittarius will be on June 19, so these same lessons will be worked on for a longer period of time. Take advantage of this opportunity because it is very important.

Now you practice your new rules, your new philosophy of life, the one that lets you expand and grow. For that to happen, you need to be centered in your convictions, understand your life mission and purpose, and know your place in the world. That requires a sense of freedom, which will make you feel attracted to traveling, other cultures, other philosophies, study deeply a subject of interest related to the “truth” — whether it’s sciences, philosophy, politics, or religion — or go deeper in your intuition and spirituality. This new system is not imposed by others — your family, your culture, your community, your education or social conditioning — but comes from all the personal knowledge obtained through experience. The more you learn, the better informed are your decisions to adjust to your present needs and reality.

Remember that not even this is forever, that it needs to bee adjusted while you and your life change. It’s also important to remember and highlight the respect others’ path towards their own truth. The exchange of ideas is always welcome with the purpose of learning, never to impose your ideas on others, or for the righteousness of feeding the ego because “i know and you don’t”. This corrupts the other’s free will, creates separation, and can even induce violence. There is no such thing as absolute truth. This new sense of security will give you the optimism, self-confidence, and motivation to work on those postponed plans and projects because now your convictions are planted on firm ground.

Look for your zodiac sign to see which aspect of your life needs to expand, find its truth, and a sense of spontaneity and adventure until July 4:

New Moon in Taurus Horoscope: May 6 – 20

The New Moon always invites to let go of those things that limit you. It also invites to plant the seed of a new cycle. Like all seeds, this one has the potential of a result. Maybe a tree comes out of it, a plant, many fruits, but maybe nothing happens. To achieve what you want, you’ll have to work hard for it and provide the seed with what it needs to germinate. This lunation provides an opportunity of introspection to be sure of what you want and what you need. What do you need to love yourself more, to be self-sufficient, to feel stable and safe? This is a time to do those things that give you a sense of safety and stability, to realize how valuable you are and where your personal treasures reside. It is important to identify how are you of value for others, for a business, or a project. What do you bring to the table, what can you offer, how can you maintain it or improve it? What is important for you? Which and where are your boundaries? What are you willing to negotiate and what not? This are the questions you need to make to be sure of the chosen path, the relationships you should nurture, and the projects you’ll focus on.

Mercury Retrograde in Taurus and the Sun in Taurus support this introspection and prevent certain matters to be rushed so they are properly revised until the answers and decisions made provide a sense of certainty. Taurus likes to move slowly, but firmly. What’s important is to maintain what has been already achieved, to not lose what has been conquered. Remember always what you have, not what you lack. How? Being grateful. Gratitude makes you conscious of what you have. It’s a quality of inner stability.

Look for your sign to know which aspect of your life needs to be nurtured, maintained, and valued until May 20: Continue reading

Full Moon in Scorpio: Horoscope for April 22 – May 6

The last time there was a New Moon in Taurus was on May 17, 2015. During that time, you began to leave behind those things that made you feel comfortable and fulfilled your needs but was not taking the other into account. And since Taurus is a fixed sign — better known as stubborn — and an Earth sign, it is more difficult to let go and change. Just as the Sabian Symbol describes at the end of this post, this is a moment to live and work in community for the common good. That’s what this Full Moon in Scorpio is about and its effects last until the next Full Moon in Taurus, on May 6. With this Full Moon you realize that in order to overcome obstacles and conquer that obscure territory in front of you, you must join forces with others that have the same goal and motivations as you do. This are alliances of power, complementary relationships — one has what the other lacks — and create a powerful mechanism which is difficult to destroy. It’s crucial that you know what resources do you have and how you are of value. The same goes for the other. That way, both can unite to complete a whole that helps both to achieve a goal. These alliances can be of two or more people, of course, but they are successful only if each one knows where they shine and where they need help, when they know their strengths and weaknesses. This is an act of vulnerability and it can be scary, but it’s necessary.

This Full Moon shows which are your fears, your inner demons, your mechanisms of self-deceit. It’s a painful process because something in you must die and transform in order to be reborn: a situation, a relationship, a behavior patter, a belief. That which must die gives you a false sense of security and certainty. Now you have grown enough to shed your skin and let go that which has already served its purpose. If you don’t let it go, it becomes a burden. This is something hidden, it’s not obvious and it hides where the true power resides. Don’t be surprised to see during these days the true power struggles and power games be revealed into the public eye.

Look for your Sun sign and Ascendant sign to see which aspect of your life needs to die, transform, and be reborn until May 6: Continue reading

New Moon Horoscope: April 7-22, 2016

The New Moon, the total darkness of the night, represents all the potential of the planted seed. This is the moment to initiate new intentions and new plans. Slowly but surely it will grow. Now you’ll begin to break free those aspects of your life that came out of a difficult alliance or relationship during the last Full Moon in Libra, which was also a lunar eclipse. That moment of crisis in your relationships helped to balance the relationship you have with yourself. Now it’s time to rediscover yourself, explore new things, and rediscover your identity. Everything you begin now will reveal its results in the next Full Moon in Aries, on October 15, 2016. The Aries-Libra polarity promotes to have healthy relationships with others without losing your own identity nor your independence. Use your instinct to trace new forms of projecting yourself to others: a new image or look, something new in your life to explore, or a new potential to develop. Be careful not to be impulsive nor egocentric. Now is the time to set strong footings for yourself so you can create strong ties with others.

Look for your zodiac sign to know which aspect of your life needs more independence until April 22: Continue reading

Lunar Eclipse Horoscope: March 23, 2016

The Partial Lunar Eclipse of March 23, 2016 occurs at 3º17′ of Libra. It will be visible in most parts of Asia, Australia and the Americas. By definition, a lunar eclipse occurs when Earth is aligned between the Sun and the Moon creating a shadow over the Earth’s satellite. As seen from Earth, the Moon “turns off”. Here the subconsciousness, the emotions, are “turned off” or eclipsed. Lunar eclipses calls you to face a need of manifesting new ways to move towards your future. This is presented as stress, crisis, and change in some aspect of your life. Depending on where the eclipse falls in your chart is what needs to be resolved. Today’s Full Moon in Libra and the New Moon in Aries of next April 7 show which things need to be left behind and which need to be developed to progress. Continue reading

Tarot Horoscope: June 2015

Rider-Waite Tarot. Arcana XVI: The Tower

THE TOWER

June comes full of both pleasant and unpleasant surprises. The sudden changes of the month have the purpose of knocking down any false illusion of stability you’re attached to: a job, a relationship, your social status. If your sense of identity and self-value depend on it, the rug will be pulled from under your feet. The idea is that you should not be defined by what you have but for what you are. This is the chance to be yourself, so anything that is not you must go. If you don’t initiate the change, the circumstances will do it for you. It’ll be quick, unexpected. Probably it’ll leave you breathless, but it’ll serve as an awakening, a moment to finally see things clearly. You may want to renovate something: repair the car, restore your home, refurbish an idea or project. You’ll want to do it with yourself: start a new diet and exercise regime, end empty relationships, or leave behind unsatisfying behavior patterns. You may want to do anything that aligns with your true nature or takes you closer to it. Anything for authenticity. Continue reading

Tarot Horoscope: March 2015

THE HIEROPHANT

The fifth arcana announces learning and teaching experiences that require us to trust our faith. During March, we’ll face challenges, specially unresolved family issues, in order to push us towards change. To become more ourselves, we must change our beliefs, identity or lifestyle to support our authenticity. We might want to let go of relationships, things or situations that bring us fear, deceit, worry, and feelings of defeat. Whatever does not support our growth must be left behind. This will give way to a process of initiation to expand our consciousness, renovate, and regenerate.

March will be very important to give tangible shape to our plans, dreams, and desires. Some may want to expand their education — going back to school or college, starting a new training or consulting, becoming an apprentice or mentor, student or teacher. This has the purpose of acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to materialize in the outer world an idea or desire of our inner world. Creative projects, new businesses, and managerial jobs are favored this month. Any effort to be productive and bring stability to our lives will bear fruit. The keyword of the month is: commitment. Commitments are successful when mind, heart, and action are aligned and focused on an intention. When this does not occur, when one or all the parts are not willing to fully participate, the commitment breaks.

In March we must commit to trust our leadership, intuition, and child-like curiosity. Let’s listen to our inner voice and go into the spiritual world with practical feet in our daily lives. We must find the sacred within us and within others. Let’s behave with integrity, honesty, and transparency. Continue reading
