Today’s Tarot Card for 8/29 is The Fool

The Fool

Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:

The Fool

This Tarot Deck: Aquarian

General Meaning: Pamela Coleman-Smith’s artful rendition of an “innocent Fool” archetype (Rider-Waite deck) is often used to represent Tarot in general. Early classical versions of the Fool card, however, portray quite a different character — a person driven by base needs and urges, who has fallen into a state of poverty and deprivation.

In some instances, he is made out to be a carnival entertainer or a huckster. In others, he is portrayed as decrepit and vulnerable — as the cumulative result of his delusions and failures. Not until the 20th century do you see the popular Rider-Waite image of the Fool arise — that of an innocent Soul before its Fall into Matter, as yet untainted by contact with society and all its ills.

Modern decks usually borrow from the Rider-Waite imagery. Most Fool cards copy the bucolic mountainside scene, the butterfly, the potential misplaced step that will send the Fool tumbling into the unknown. Don’t forget, however, that the earlier versions of this card represented already-fallen humanity, over-identified with the material plane of existence, and beginning a pilgrimage towards self-knowledge, and eventually, wisdom. The Fool reminds us to recognize the path of personal development within ourselves — and the stage upon that path where we find ourselves — in order to energize our movement toward deeper self-realization.

General Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 29, 2011

A day of harmonious lunar aspects can soften the lingering intensity from yesterday’s Sun-Pluto trine, enabling us to let go of any deep feelings that recently came to the surface. Taking practical action is advised as we move toward tomorrow’s lovely trine between pleasurable Venus and auspicious Jupiter in stable Taurus. Meanwhile, the cautious Virgo Moon forms an easy trine with Jupiter, indicating a positive outcome to current actions.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re not interested in seeing both sides of an argument today, especially if you believe that your perspective is the correct one. However, you will enjoy yourself more and won’t sacrifice anything in the process if you remain open to someone else’s opinion, too. There’s no need to be so firm in your convictions that you arouse unnecessary conflict. Just remember that even if you listen to what others have to say, you can still remain true to your beliefs.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

This could be a highly creative day for you, but you have to take advantage of the opportunities now presented to you. Although you may have serious obligations to fulfill, don’t let them prevent you from having fun. Make use of your determination; once you set your mind on something today, there’s a very good chance you’ll actually be able to reach your goal. Accomplishments may not come easily, but fortunately, your concentration should pay off.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You can be the champion of procrastination when an unpleasant task needs to be completed. Be careful now, for you may be able to get away with postponing a difficult conversation for another day or two. Just remember that the inevitable cannot be delayed forever. You’re better off jumping into the emotional abyss sooner than later. Take advantage of the current support you are receiving, for it could begin to fade tomorrow.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may encounter circumstances beyond your control that give you good reason to fret today. Thankfully, you should be able to manage the emotional tension and channel it to increase your productivity. A powerful person may be surprised by your ability to maintain your composure under fire and your willingness to do whatever is necessary to succeed. Don’t bother attempting to impress anyone; just make sure you do what you need to do to thrive in the current storm.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The unflappable strength of your convictions is your secret weapon today. Others may think that you’re overly eager to please, but actually you’re driven now by an overwhelming sense of practicality and you won’t let anyone pull you off course. Saving dramatic expressions of your feelings for another day heightens your efficiency. If negative emotions arise, it’s okay to temporarily hide your annoyance or anger until they pass.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You are in your own earthy element today and eager to start a project or just have some fun. But even if you have an overall sense of well-being, you are still sensitive enough to feel a tempest brewing. Although you want to be safe and sound if a storm hits, there’s no reason to cancel your social activities or postpone any scheduled plans. Enjoy yourself for the next few days while you still can.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It’s a bit unsettling for you to feel so peaceful while others think you’re being ambivalent. However, you know when it’s wise to keep your emotions to yourself. Trust your hunches now; you’re probably more in touch with your intuition while the Moon is in your sign than you realize. But don’t worry if you say more than you intended because everything’s going to come out into the open soon enough. In the meantime, relax and enjoy the calm while it lasts.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your perceptions are quite keen today and it’s unlikely that anyone will be able to fool you. Still, you could have a difficult time focusing your attention on the present moment now because three planets in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals indicate that you are concentrating on the future. However, there aren’t any shortcuts and it will take time for you to reach your destination. Thankfully, your unrelenting determination may be just what you need to get you there.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You are all about getting ahead at work today and can make a lot of progress if you put your mind to it. Fortunately, this is a great time to organize your life, and it’s wise to start by reprioritizing your goals. Even if you already know where you want to go, stopping to redefine your objectives is the most useful thing you can do right now. Once you make a decision about your new direction, sit with it for a few days before doing anything about it to make sure that your optimism doesn’t get the best of you.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are feeling good enough today that you are tempted to take on too much, but five planets in practical Earth signs make it more likely that you’ll be guided by your common sense. Ultimately, you’re able to strike a comfortable balance between your need to get things done in a timely manner and your desire to kick back and relax. Luckily, the planets are supporting you now, making it easy to succeed, no matter what you decide to do.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You seem to possess a magic bullet today that enables you to dissipate the stress as quickly as it continues to build. However, even though you can stay mellow, your problems won’t vanish just because you want them to go away. You’ll have to face the music sooner or later and, since you currently have excellent support from the cosmos, it might just as well be now.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Although your relationship troubles aren’t over, your positive attitude can go a long way today toward soothing a recent upset. Still, your pleasant disposition won’t diminish your emotional intensity. Others might see right through your calm veneer and understand how passionate you are about doing the right thing. Nevertheless, you must decide which path you’re going to follow, and that can stir up significant conflict along the way.

General Weekly Love Horoscopes for Monday, August 29, 2011

We may experience two distinct moods this weekend, starting with the Moon in mysterious and passionate Scorpio and then shifting into easygoing and adventurous Sagittarius on Saturday afternoon. Issues that seem intensely serious can turn light and playful as we stop keeping score long enough to simply let go and have some fun.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may be wrestling with a complex relationship issue on Thursday and Friday with the suspicious Scorpio Moon’s presence in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. Jealousy or mistrust can push some sensitive buttons if there are insecurities lurking beneath the surface. But a lunar shift into freedom-loving Sagittarius on Saturday afternoon fits your current laissez-faire attitude, which is ideal for enjoying yourself today without worrying too much about tomorrow.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

The Moon moves from your 7th House of Connections to your 8th House of Intimacy on Saturday afternoon. Relationships are definitely in the spotlight, but learning how to let go of old fears and expectations is critical if you want to get close. Experimenting with a different set of rules and a more generous attitude reduces stress with a current partner and makes you more desirable to new ones.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Perhaps recently you have felt like you’re not being treated as an equal, often stuck with the dirty work and overly aware of your imperfections, your luck should change dramatically on Saturday afternoon. The mood-setting Moon fires into outgoing Sagittarius and your 7th House of Partners, opening doors to discovering fresh forms of pleasure with the one you love or to possibly connect with someone new.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

The formidable Scorpio Moon arouses intense feelings in your 5th House of Romance from Thursday to Saturday afternoon. Desire is growing deeper, but so are the complications that can be stirred when emotions run the show. The Moon’s shift into optimistic Sagittarius changes the tune to a brighter and lighter melody, which can turn work or other chores into opportunities for play and laughter.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

The Moon dances into exuberant Sagittarius and your 5th House of Love and Creativity on Saturday afternoon. There’s no stopping you when it comes to expressing your feelings and pursuing the pleasure you seek. You may come on too strong for sensitive people, but if you’re in the mood to play, there’s no reason to restrain yourself. Open your heart to give love honestly, but add a dash of discretion for good measure.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Deep conversations can tie you in knots if you’re not forthcoming or are trusting unreliable people on Thursday and Friday. On Saturday afternoon the Moon enters fun-loving Sagittarius and your domestic 4th House, making your abode the perfect place to play. Generously opening your home and heart to celebrate life is a gift to others that will be returned to you with much love and affection.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The serious Scorpio Moon visits your 2nd House of Self-Worth on Thursday and Friday, challenging you to make the most of your resources. Instead of focusing on what’s missing, channel your efforts toward building yourself up. A chattier and more playful time is likely when the Moon soars into outgoing Sagittarius on Saturday afternoon, inviting both comical comments and shocking honesty.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Considering a makeover is reasonable late this week with the Moon traveling through your transformational sign from Thursday to Saturday afternoon. It’s better to take control of your own life than to try to control others. A lunar shift into insouciant Sagittarius could put you in a happy-go-lucky mood that encourages you to play more and measure less. Having a good time might be all the reward you need.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may uncharacteristically prefer some privacy and alone time later this week until the Moon enters your outgoing sign on Saturday afternoon. This lunar boost kicks up your enthusiasm and increases your willingness to take risks. Expressing yourself with candor is nothing new, but it might lead to embarrassing revelations if you’re not careful now. Applying a little tenderness will help soften the frankness of your remarks.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Groups can play a significant role in your social life when the Moon visits your team-oriented 11th House from Thursday to Saturday afternoon. You might feel bogged down by being part of the group process, yet your leadership instincts could put you at the head of the pack. A greater desire for peace and quiet arises with a lunar transit into your secretive 12th House on Saturday afternoon. Make your escape before anyone notices.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You can feel like a weight is being lifted off your shoulders with the Moon’s entry into spirited Sagittarius on Saturday afternoon. If you’ve been recently burdened by obligations or worries, it’s finally time to let your hair down, find some playful companions and kick up your heels. Taking relationships seriously is less important than finally relaxing with those who want nothing else but to have a good time.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Personal matters can take a philosophical turn when the intense Scorpio Moon enters your 9th House of Beliefs on Thursday. Addressing ethical issues may be required if you’re dealing with a sketchy person or questions about your own values. You may have to dig deeply to understand hidden motivations, but once you uncover them you’ll be better able to handle the powerful emotions that are driving your relationships.

the daily humorscopes for Monday, August 29

the daily humorscope

Monday, August 29, 2011

 
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You will decide to take up juggling, today, and will become exceedingly good at it. Eventually, you’ll start an offbeat new religion, and proclaim that Supreme Truth will be revealed to those who juggle.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Today you will become stuck in a wicker chair. This is what the British refer to as a “sticky wicker”, as it is an unfortunately common occurrence in their climate.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Paper airplane day, today. Have as much fun as you can stand — tomorrow will be ugly.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You need to be a bit more brusque, to cut down on your interruptions. Stay just this side of gruff, however – and make sure you don’t stray into crustyness.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
It’s time to tell your friend to quit wearing that rediculous goatee. Why not recommend a sheepee, instead?
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
In a stroke of pure marketing genius, you will start a company to sell fresh-roasted peanut butter door-to-door. Your sales people may find the peanut costumes a bit uncomfortable, at first, however.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Noticing a picture on a colleague’s desk, you will comment “I’ve never cared for those hairless cats”. That might not be a good thing to say. Newborns can be a bit blotchy, and new parents can be a bit touchy…
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Several extremely hungry creatures will look at you strangely, today. Throw them a raisin cookie.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
While cracking your knuckles today, you will be a bit startled to hear a “ping” sound rather than a “pop”. That’s a bad habit, anyway.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
You will have an intellectual discussion with a potato, soon. You’ll be so caught up in whether it was Descartes or Voltaire who first advocated empiricism, that it will fail to strike you as a bit odd that the potato knows much of anything about 17th-century French philosophers. In fact, it knows more about them than you do. Later, that will irritate you.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
This is a time when you need to hold on to your dreams. Or in other words, reality is becoming too much for you, and you should try to escape into a bizarre fantasy life. Heck, it works fine for Ross Perot, doesn’t it?
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
This week, you are the bug and everyone else is the really huge shoe. Your objective: don’t be noticed.
