~ FEATURED VIDEO OF THE WEEK ~
It’s quite a Major (Arcana) week, an important time, and important times are great with music to keep things fresh! So, this week’s featured video is the original Mystereum Tarot set to Roll With The Moment by singer and songwriter Leslie Mills.
TarotScope Allies for Your Sept 15th to Sept 21st, 2013 Week
In general this is a big week. With 5 Majors and 3 Courts coming to the table it is an important time. Don’t take anything for granted, especially the things you assume are solidly in place. Take care to touch base and check in directly with your partner and colleagues and friends this week to make sure neither of you are sweeping what seem like small relationship maintenance things under the carpet. This is a great week for big moves and also for cleaning house. Keep things clean and well-maintained and you might just clean up this week in more ways than housekeeping. This is a great week to activate your big picture further by focusing on and tuning and tailoring details in the immediate picture.
This week pay special attention to how things are presented. The fit, finish, and practiced polish of expertise or lack of it will be a wonderful outward indicator of the quality of the substance inside. This is not a week of irony or appearance versus reality. The intensity of how people and things stand right up will show you just how things are. Be careful not to get hoodwinked by hucksters riding the coat-tails of these energies, though for the most part this week seeing will be believing. Pass off any hood-winkery attempts you encounter this week as ads you can easily just skip so you stay on task to your advantage with your best performance in play. This is a great week for your performance to shine more than it is a week to emphasize planning or proposals. Big things are both afoot and in play. Take notes for upcoming proposals, though primarily focus on your performance and actions across the week in regards to things already in play in your world. Take the bright opportunity this week to actively and effectively get things done in big ways. There are a lot of big characters around to support your work.
Virgo: August 23 to September 22 ~ King of Pentacles
Virgo, Things are solidly in play this week for you, so take the opportunity to shine with the things you do while making sure people know you’re there. Have plenty of business cards and flyers with you so you effortlessly don’t miss a trick. In fact if you can get creative about it, get all of your marketing collateral — business cards, flyers, promos — into an attractive case all their own. The idea of a business card treasure chest comes to mind as a thought. This week you want each and every thing about your presence to be just so to a T as prepared for the public as royalty solidly is… as you are the royalty in the public eye this week.
Libra: September 23 to October 22 ~ XVII The Star
Libra, Your celestial groove is giggin’ this week as fluidly as the Silver Surfer. Feel into those dreams of yours. Instead of stars in your sky, visualize those bright lights in your dreaming night sky as candles seen close up. Notice how naturally they respond to every little influence while securely holding their identity as a flame, a mesmerizing flame. This week do some candle gazing to softly rocket those bright, night sky dream lights right up to you as candle flames. This week transcends eternal hope as your dreams begin to come to reality by your smilingly magnetic doing. This week your dreams will feel very welcome and invited to venture up close so you can better see how to build foundations under them to give them places of their own. This week choose a dream or two and effectively bring them more into play in the flesh, giving form to the formless.
Scorpio: October 23 to November 21 ~ 10 of Wands
Scorpio, Many cards paint this image as a fully flexed pushing forward of a struggle. I felt that, “HECK!, that guy is really holding all of his wandy energies together.” I don’t know if I could even carry 10 Wands, so I elevated his ability to hold it all together to a Cirque du Soleil level. With grace and agility and expert balance this week get all of your energies in play together like 10 cylinders working together under your sporty hood. You may be in the limelight this week, so look your best regardless of how many things are going on. Be like a juggler who makes multi-tasking both a myth and to appear effortless. Realize the trick of the juggler this week and the myth of multi-tasking. There is never typically more than one thing in either hand at a time while the rest have been delegated back out into their orbits. Focus on the items at hand at any given time, and feel wonderfully free to keep them moving fluidly. f you start to get overwhelmed, I suggest to find some plate spinner or pizza dough making videos. They’ll take your mind off all of the things in play, yet still be expressive of the multiple energies in play. Plate spinning for project management. Maybe that’s a good book title. Maybe it’s what your week’s going to feel like. Don’t let them drop. Pull some down until you get their cycles just right to enhance the overall grace of your strong balance this week.
Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21 ~ 7 of Wands
Sagittarius, Keep your wits about you this week as you may be in the kind of mood to charge in regardless of the odds. Do note what you are charging into, though. Taking a jump into a lake for a swim is just fine. Just don’t hop right in for a swim in big things that say “Vat” on the side as “of acid” may be in the fine print. Both the big picture and the smaller pictures composing it are fully in play for you this week. Make sure you have a clear sense of the energy formations of things you go headlong into. Allow your own energies to contribute multiple kinds of clarity around the energy you are primarily focused on this week. You may feel a little out of place like you are in an astronaut or scuba suit in the park. Simply resonate up to cycle fully with the new energies in play so multiple points of interest are created rather than perceiving frenetic and distracting influences that can both erode and cloud your focus. Keep your eyes clear and your windscreen clean this week. Seeing what’s up ahead is a good start to driving your energies forward effectively.
Capricorn: December 22 to January 19 ~ XX Judgment
Capricorn, Receiving the Judgment card this week is a taking your Ace of Pentacles from last week to a higher octave. Those assets and seeds you’ve been noticing and even been feeling like seeds cracking open underground before they burst into the sun is brightening your scene with a more solid sense of new hope. Rather than smoking hope, the hope in your mix is more of a smiling breath of fresh air as you stretch up into the new season like a perennial. Fall’s a great time for planting perennials so they work more on their roots and grow stronger and larger in the Spring. This week you might want to get to the garden store and select some mixed bags of Crocus bulbs or whatever pokes noses up first in the Spring where you are. Pay your respects to your new assets and seeds by putting some bulbs into the ground to plan for a more colorful and brighter future. This week is about rising up and looking forward while being wonderfully connected to where you came from. This week fly as high as your roots go deep, and add some more roots to your mix so you can have more to build with in the Spring.
Aquarius: January 20 to February 18 ~ IX The Hermit
Aquarius, Allow yourself to fall into the Fall this week. Notice how natural cycles of yours are coming to fruition in their completions. Like the Hermit seeing his first footsteps as he comes back around full circle… Use the cycles of your experience to sense and see familiar things differently this week. The experiences born of your recent cycles coming to completion are there now so you can quietly and astutely create, recognize, develop, and receive new opportunities regularly. This week is a time to see familiar things differently and to take things under advisement, to take them into the cave by the firelight so to speak. Look at things in the most earnest and naturally focused ways this week. Opening up to have a better feeling-sense of how things do and do not resonate with your experiences is the crux of your week. Distinguish between Silence and quiet things versus sneaky and omissive/ironic things that are more passive aggressive in nature. Be at home with the snakes so to speak. Just avoid the poisonous ones. You don’t need to get bitten and suffer in silence. Utilize the perspective that astutely opens up in you when you go inside and get quiet enough to hear. Utilize the perspective that astutely opens up in you when you go outside and get quiet enough to hear. This week get quiet enough to hear. New opportunities are probably hiding in plain sight… in the dark. And, they’re hiding for you rather than from you. Unfold some mysteries this week as naturally and easily as egg proteins unfold when cooked. How do you take your week? Scrambled? Poached? Over easy? Sunny side up? Get quiet enough to hear your own order. Order UP!
Pisces: February 19 to March 20 ~ Knight of Swords
Pisces, This week you may feel like a jungle guide double-machete-twirl cutting through a serious chaos of thoughts and communications. You only need to look back a second occasionally at the clear trail you are blazing to confirm how you are incorporating direction for people to place their ideas. Odds are no-one can see the extent of thick jungle in front of you as you deftly open up clear communications in places where before was only messy overgrowth. Nature and jungles are really messy. They are natural. This week harvest your way through projects and areas of communications that have been left far too long to their own devices. There will be untold treasures that appear as you plow in through what is now new territory. You needn’t worry if the directions you take already have old paths directly under your feet or crisscrossing across where you are going. This week will be about opening up to blaze new trails and also to tread where others have seriously failed. The directions you open up with your thoughts, ideas, and communications will be ripe now to be incorporated. It’s not going to be a week of mind over matter, though. More like machete over matter. Make sure your scouts don’t go too far ahead as you are already on the bleeding edge incorporating new directions. Don’t let your allies get lost. This week your scouts may serve you best by dropping back behind you to explore the trails you have already blazed. Delegate to your allies to work the ground you clear this week… also so YOU don’t get too far ahead.
Aries: March 21 to April 19 ~ Queen of Cups
Aries, Rise up and deliver from the harmony and balance of your emotions and intuition this week. The feelings you discern and express will be just as well-received as they have been naturally formed in you. Be spare with your expressions and be mindful not to prematurely articulate things. This is not a week for assumptions or carpet bombing by gushing emotionally. You’re in the driver’s seat. You have the opportunity to be Queen this week… Queen, the natural leader who sees all close up though often from just off to the side out of direct view. Step into view more this week in regards to those things you feel most passionate about. People may have come to expect your natural bravery, though this week juice up your expressions with a healthy dose of your natural nobility of soul. You’re in the driver’s seat. Discern well who your co-pilots are versus the backseat drivers. Avoid the wimpy control issues of backseat drivers’ fear of the unknown while you and your co-pilots rise up and deliver those things you feel most passionate about. More people than you know will hear you this week and extend their support.
Taurus: April 20 to May 20 ~ III The Empress
Taurus, This is your week to carry a larger project to full term. Have you been working hard on a proposal? Get in high gear and finish strongly. Do you have a long-term project in the works that is nearing completion? Go back through it to make sure all of your ducks are in a row so the whole thing flies more strongly when completed. This is a week to be your own personal version of the Yoniverse, that from which all emanates. Look into spider energy as the Mother of the Universe. Look into praying mantis energy for the power of stillness with focus so intense that time may all but go away. Really get into that last 5% of your project that seems to take the OTHER 95% of the time. It’s coming time to present the whole shibang. Allow this week to be the time for careful attention to getting the icing on the cake just right. Spend your energies this week on the way the whole thing comes across. It’s about time for launch. Take the time to take the attention to details time. The big picture this week is going to become more fully focused by the way you tune and tailor all of the details to work together. Take the time to take the time this week. Your attention to detail this week is your surest ally in the big picture.
Gemini: May 21 – June 20 ~ XXI The World
Gemini, You may feel like you’ve gone down the rabbit hole this week with a twist. Does it feel like you’ve gone up into a rabbit hole? You may be experiencing a more full way of embracing life brought on BY new life? Look into the card and experience the feeling of rising up through an obelisk. Embrace your shifting perspective as going up into the rabbit hole, as looking up through the obelisk as you resonate with a more full sense of love across the board. It’s a boy! It’s a girl! It’s twins! We launched the project! These may be some of the things that are announcing a more full embrace of love and life to you this week that includes you and at the same time is more than you and with both together enhances everything you do. You may feel the wisdom of a quiet and knowing bright-eyed smile more than explaining things this week. You may be opening up into a new brand of whole mindbodybeautiful listening. This week experience the wisdom of the ages you were born with that is naturally present in your emotions. Express things in the moment wise in time this week, even if only with a knowing glance. This week there is no need to build character. This week your character is being more fully revealed to you. Relish in it. Enjoy it. Share it with the world. It’s your week to smile at “the twist” which is really unfolding you to untwist and reveal who you really are in newly conscious ways. I almost wrote couscous ways there, so include your food in your experience, too. Savor it this week. Relish in the tastes and textures and smells of the new life around you this week. Maybe even go so far as to put your fork or utensils down as you chew and experience each and every bite.
Cancer: June 21 – July 22 ~ 4 of Wands
Cancer, Something is flowing in to refresh your established energies and the structures you live by this week. What could it be? I suggest not to look for another thing or another structural life component. This refreshing flow nourishes the space between things this week, Explore the Psychic Synapse of the space between like you enjoy the magical twilight at dawn and dusk. Does the sun come up at dawn? Do the depths rise at dusk? Play with the refreshing new things flowing through your mix this week. This is not a week for taking on new, big projects or new undertakings. This week focus on the inter-relations of the things and structures you already have solidly in play. Play the space between things and don’t get hung up on reconfiguring things too much. Experience the flow refreshing what you already have. The flow itself may smooth out some rough edges that bugger you to fits this week.
Leo: July 23 to August 22 ~ 10 of Pentacles
Leo, Stand and deliver strongly this week. Be prepared to receive some healthy fanfare for your efforts. Throughout the week remember the favorite places you go and your favorite things to do. Do you have a favorite place to go that gives back to you? If you can’t go there, visualize it intermittently throughout the week. The ties and enrichment you provide, receive, and share with others is really both the highlight of and the point of this week. Your perspective on things will be enhanced, reinforced, and strengthened by the ways you connect this week. Your perspective may also be spruced up in such a way that you discover other talents you have that may be so big and so there that you just missed them. This is a week where the sky is not the limit. Look up and the sky is right there. See beyond from wonderfully developed places this week. Odds are that the ground you walk on this week may be as inspirational as the stars in your sky. Remember back to here as you go forward with your 10 of solid completions well-placed.
