Tarot Horoscope: December 2014

THE HERMIT

During the holidays, The Hermit makes an appropriate calling to introspection and reflection. The last month of the year will be full of social events. Nonetheless, we must make some time for solitude to connect with our inner light. We will discover our own truth and it will become the lamp that lights up the path to be followed, paved with the acquired knowledge. Our past experiences, specially the difficult ones, now become the stepping stones to reach the peak of our lives. The Hermit is not afraid to walk into an uncertain journey. He knows there is no such thing as certainty, thus he relies on the strength of his spirit. We must cultivate our humility, knowing that we can stand out with our own shine. Along the way, we will be letting go of our attachments, the need to feed our ego, of anything that doesn’t make up our essence. Recognition, possessions, success, and others’ approval become irrelevant, unless it comes from ourselves. Use this month to serve others. It’s through service that we recognize ourselves as divine tools. By the end of December, we will not be making a list of resolutions for the new year, but we’ll be designing a plan to materialize those old resolutions that have been postponed year after year. The priority is to bring to conclusion those unresolved issues in our lives. Continue reading

Laura’s secrets: Grace

Today, for the first time ever, I enjoyed the aroma of the flowers of my favorite tree, a local oak at my parents’ backyard. They have a delicate and intoxicating smell of eternity, of essence of life, of ecstasy. I immersed in its fragrance and time stopped. I looked around and noticed that it was the only tree with flowers. Parasite vines are suffocating its trunk again, but the oak doesn’t give up and blossoms. Today it looks more beautiful than ever. I lived the moment before the breeze would stop, before the sun would set, before I would return and the flowers with their perfume are gone. Today I give thanks because I had an intimate moment with the Infinite, because in the small things I found the great ones, because inside a flower I reencountered the mystery of life. I give thanks for one of the happiest years of my life yet, because I have found myself surrounded by love and loyalty, because my family, friends, and pets are my greatest treasure. I have met wonderful people and started to give all of my uncensored self and my soul without looking to whom when my days seemed most difficult. Today I celebrate how fortunate I am. I have everything that money cannot buy. I am blossoming. “Thank you to Life who has given me so much”. Continue reading

Tarot Horoscope: November 2014

STRENGTH

November will be the month to dominate our fears, take control over challenging situations, and persuade destiny to achieve our dreams. We’ll see how businesses and projects flourish while taking all of our time. We must be strategic and smart to handle all the activity that is getting out of hand. Asking for help and managing well your resources, whether human or financial, will be crucial to stay afloat during an unexpected and exponencial growth. In love, seduction will take us far. Whether sick or healthy, we must rest appropriately to recharge and maintaing our energy. Excess brings consequences which, if not avoided, must be handled and will delay goals set for the month. Our dreams are becoming alive. Now it’s time to give them direction. Continue reading

Solar Eclipse: October 23, 2014

This solar eclipse is quite particular because it indicates great transformations during the next six months in intimate relationships. It occurs at 0º 25′ of Scorpio at 5:58 pm, Atlantic Time (UTC -4) on October 23, 2014. Eclipses present themselves as moments of crisis and by happening in Scorpio, it is precisely through constant crisis where self-knowledge and self-mastery can be achieved. Some aspect of life crumbles and must be rebuilt. Some crisis in life announces some kind of death and the need to establish a new life. Continue reading

Tarot Horoscope: October 2014

THE MOON

The Moon arcana invites you to walk into the mystery of the occult and the unknown. This month has many challenges in store which require all your focus and will leave you exhausted at the end. The Moon reminds you that everything in life is uncertain, that you must keep your faith in the chosen path and that the only thing known about that path is the next step. For many, this will be a month to evaluate and redefine their own identity, how to project themselves to the world, and how they are accepted or rejected. There may be makeovers – a new outfit or hairdo – and new attitudes to highlight certain traits and hide others. It’s time to try on new masks. Relationships and career will be evaluated. Deceit and secrets will be revealed while pretending to have a perfect reputation. Be careful with any new opportunity or person that shows up this month. Communication will be blurry, incomplete, and unclear. October will be specially positive to develop intuition and work with the psyche, like psychological therapy or hipnosis. Use this time to understand your innermost wounds and heal them. Anything mysterious, like magic, shamanism, astrology and Tarot becomes quite attractive. Be careful with your motivations. Even though diving into your own darkness to heal is positive, you must be careful whom you trust and who helps you out. Some will do it because they genuinely wants to help. Others will do it to get intimate personal information from you and eventually use it to manipulate you and gain power over you. Nothing is what it seems. Be suspicious of everyone and everything until they confirm being a trustworthy and loyal source. Trust only your inner voice, the one that says, “go on, you can do it”. Be patient! This month promises to be quite intense, since the ties created with others and your own spirit are very strong and, meanwhile, other ties break definitely in a painful way. Comprehend the fact that these experiences are necessary to grow, keep on moving, and let die once and for all that thing of the past that limits your evolution. Courage and valor in the heart are a must, since you’ll face your greatest fears, that which you thought defined you and now understand it doesn’t. A rebirth of your own self emerges from the dark. You’ll discover if the planted seeds will germinate or not. Remember, the night is its darkest right before sunrise. Continue reading

Tarot Horoscope: September 2014

THE HIGH PRIESTESS

September offers the opportunity to connect with our inner voice, our intuition, and our sixth sense. Therefore, it’ll be important to give ourselves some time for rest and introspection. We must come to terms with our dark side and our bright side, acknowledge the duality that lies within, and transmute our wounds with love. This month will be particularly important for creativity, art, and romance. Some will find a new love; others will strengthen their existing relationship. Whichever is the case, we will fall in love with life and ourselves. Many of our questions will be answered through dreams or occult messages. We will reconnect with those friendships regardless of time and distance while we connect with our spirit and essence. We will understand that eternity is right now, at each moment, a continuity without beginning nor end. That’s where we come from and where we will go back to. Continue reading

Tarot Horoscope: July 2014

In July, we start to see our projects progress, specially those that seemed to be stuck. The Emperor reminds us to keep discipline, focus, and effort so we don’t waste the momentum we’ve been waiting for and finally arrived. On one hand, it will be crucial to plan the rest of the year with detail so we turn time into an ally. On the other hand, it is vital to keep in mind that we will achieve anything we have intended if we face our fears and doubts, and work hard. We must not let emotions dominate ourselves, but know how to channel them effectively. Start making those sacrifices you have been postponing: the exercise routine, the diet, an unfinished project. It is time to wrap up details, let go anything that is not needed anymore, and conclude any unresolved situation of our present or past. Our leadership will be required to solve conflicts. For some, a time of austerity starts to achieve certain goals, whether it’s lowering expenses or saving money for a trip, to invest in your business, or to buy a home. July will be an active month for business. Don’t forget to express and supply for your own needs. Even though The Emperor appears to be arid and strict, in his heart lies a noble and tender soul in need of love. Be aware of which aspect of your life is lacking nurturing, love, and attention. You don’t need to pretend to be strong. We all need love. In our vulnerability lies our true power. Let’s accept our humanity with compassion. Continue reading

Tarot Horoscope: May 2014

The Star appears after facing so many difficulties in the past few months. Instead of sinking in sadness, our inner star calls us to make its light shine beyond us. What is that special gift you have been hiding and don’t share with the world? What is that desire or project you keep delaying? Maybe you’ve been wanting to run a marathon for a while. Maybe you don’t have the courage to publish the poems that have been kept in a drawer for years. Or maybe you want to go back to theater like when you were in school. Your divine spark is begging to express itself. Creativity explodes. Your art becomes your new enterprise or, at least, your source of happiness. In the process you discover yourself, who you are, and what are you seeking. Be yourself in your purity. Trust yourself. Stop identifying yourself with your profession, your family role or your social status. You know you are much more than that, the one who dances alone in the nudity of your own soul. When you connect with your inner fire, ideas flow infinitely, inspiration never ends. It’s these ideas and inspiration that you must bring to the material world. This month of May will give you the opportunity to use your gifts fearlessly. You recognize that you have nothing to lose because you recover your self-esteem and trust. Let lose your crazy ideas and focus on the steps to follow to make it a reality. Don’t hide. If you express yourself without reserve, maybe fame and fortune pay you a visit, but surely you’ll drown in joy and livelihood. Continue reading

Total Lunar Eclipse on April 15: A Total Eclipse of the Heart

The first eclipse of the year feels like punch on the face. I’m sorry to tell you, but this is not about you anymore. You’re no longer the protagonist, but the supporting actor in this play. If you have been worried about being recognized as the leader or for what you have done — in business or in love — you’ll have a hard time for the next following months. There must be a shift of mindset from “me first” to “we first”. Continue reading

2014 Forecast

How we execute the plans of projects of the previous year will be judged in 2014. It will be important, both in love and in business, to do everything by agreement. Clear and concise communication, as well as logic and strategic ideas will lead the way to success. We’ll need to learn to express ourselves and to listen. A balanced life will be our goal. We cannot neglect our job, our business, our health nor our relationships. We must cross the T’s, pay attention to detail and do things out of goodwill. In the same way, any relationship that lacks agreements or reliable data will confront difficulties or break ups. The occult comes out to the light and the Divine Justice shows her face. Contracts, associations, marriages, sales or purchase of assets, new businesses, as well as cases in court, bankruptcies, divorce and public demise will be common. The King of Justice uses his sword to praise a good citizen or hero and make him a Knight of the Court or to cut the head off a traitor or enemy. Therefore, some will go up to fame, will be celebrated and exalted. Others will fall from their pedestal, will lose their privileged position and their credibility. Let’s act with rectitude respecting the rules and the laws by having all of our legal documents in order. Let’s use this year to put in order and practice our goals. Let’s not be afraid to go out and conquer new horizons and new dreams. If we do so with honesty and integrity, there’s nothing to lose. We will be rewarded or punished according to our behavior. Actions say more than words. Continue reading
