Your Personal Daily Tarot Card for Jan. 29th is The Hierophant

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Hierophant


The Hierophant represents the protector of a culture’s heritage and traditions. His purpose is to defend and teach the established ways and beliefs a group embraces. He is inherently conventional and a true believer in the power of the group. He loves the structure of the group and its values. It is the task of The Hierophant to bring new members into the group—to prepare the uninitiated to take their rightful place in his culture. In this sense he is very much like a teacher or a priest. He also acts as the repository of his group’s history. The Hierophant is certainly not one to buck proper authority. However, he is a staunch and worthy defender of the tried and true. He represents the positive aspects of tradition and conformity.

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

There can be a sense of peace with the past, or drawing from your inner wisdom and past experience, dear Aries, and this can be positively applied to business and relationships, or lead to a better understanding of where you’re headed. It’s a good time to relax, let go, and move on with less baggage and stress. It can also be a fine time to “make nice” with others, particularly with parents, bosses, and associates. Money sense is good, but not necessarily for facts and figures at the moment – this is more about sensing and intuiting the right moves. Emphasizing the non-material elements of a project can be a good idea now. Someone could be speaking highly of you.

Taurus

Taurus

While you may have been feeling a little wound up, dear Taurus, today’s Venus-Neptune aspect can have a soothing effect on you. It’s a great time for activities that refresh your spirit and connections that inspire and delight you. You may be released from a burden, or your calm demeanor helps you attract easygoing, positive interactions. Sharing your ideas and ideals can be rewarding. You can be attracted to out of the ordinary ideas and beliefs. There can be more compassion or understanding in a friendship today. You are seeing new layers to a relationship or a person now.

Gemini

Gemini

You seem to be tuned in to different levels of experience today, dear Gemini, and you can enjoy pleasantly unusual feelings about someone or a situation. This comes at a good time, after days that may have sapped you of some energy. There can be special connections made, or new layers to discover in a relationship or person. You may be helping someone out and generally giving of yourself more generously and positively. If you are the one who is in need of support, it tends to come to you. You might be excited to share yourself with someone, and your accepting nature tends to encourage a partner and others in general to open up about topics they may not usually address. This can be a time when you’re especially attracted to someone’s depth of character.

Cancer

Cancer

You can enjoy a good feeling that you’re expressing yourself in ways that are meaningful to others today, dear Cancer. Your own sensitivity is attracting others now. This is a time when you are especially gracious and graceful, and others appreciate your gentleness. You are romantic, creative, gentle, and adaptable today, and you naturally express the finer qualities of mysterious and dreamy Neptune. You are carrying yourself in a deserving (not entitled) way, and this can attract more to you. Others are cooperating, and this fuels your motivation – to do a better job, to be a better person, and to support and help others. This can be a nice interlude day in between days in which mental pressure is strong.

Leo

Leo

There can be a nice feeling that you’re contributing something positive to the world today, dear Leo, and you can feel moved by the idea that you’re helping and supporting others through your work, services you provide, or your practical advice. You have good team spirit right now. Intuition for work, research, discrepancies, analysis, and health matters is very strong. A more easygoing approach to problems can lead to new insight and unusual but effective solutions. Aim to reduce stress now, as this day is good for letting things go, and is sandwiched between days of rather intense mental energy.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

This can be a wonderful day for attracting positive people, feelings, and experiences into your life, dear Virgo. You’re in a pleasingly sociable and creative mood. Compassion may move you to help and support someone who needs attention. Do your best to release some tension, to bring back some level of romance to your life, and to refresh your spirit, as there is quite a bit of pressure in your life on mental levels these days, and a little more to come. Focusing on the positive, beautiful, and magical qualities of life, a person you love, and yourself can do you a whole world of good right now.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

Your desire for harmony, beauty, and balance is gently stimulated today, dear Libra, and you’re likely to want to apply your strong artistic sense to making your home or work environment more comfortable and pleasing. You’re inclined to fully enjoy supporting others and showing your affection through taking special care of their needs. While there is a distinctly gentle quality to the day’s energies, and you should take advantage of it, the Moon is in your sign until tonight, and this brings the need to self-pamper into the equation. Ideally, you’ll find ways to fill your needs to support and be supported in relatively equal measure now.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

There is subtle, wonderful energy with you today, dear Scorpio, for seeing and appreciating the beauty in your life and in your relationships. There has been, and will be for a little longer, some rather intense mental pressure to deal with these days, so take advantage of this time to refresh yourself emotionally. You are expressing yourself with warmth and a bit of mystery now, and this is likely to attract positive experiences into your life. It’s a good day for creative inspiration, and good news may come your way. The Moon remains in your privacy sector until late today, further reinforcing a need to let go, forgive, and unwind. Tonight, the Moon moves into Scorpio, stimulating a desire for action.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

This is a good day for reminding yourself of those things in your life that make you feel comfortable and safe, dear Sagittarius. It’s time for establishing your needs and desires and for exploring how to best satisfy them, and today, you may be recognizing different levels and dimensions of your needs that you normally miss. Intuition is strong for business ideas, but the real beauty of the day is a stronger awareness of both the structures and intangibles that contribute to a sense of satisfaction. There can be a desire to bring harmony and balance to your family and home life.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

Venus in your sign these days acts to enhance your appeal, dear Capricorn, and its harmonious aspect with Neptune today adds a layer of mystery and romance to your manner that is very attractive indeed! Try to take a load off now. It’s a “stop to smell the roses” kind of day. Your more gentle and compassionate qualities are emphasized. Notice how peaceful, warm interactions with others subtly enhance your mood and make life a whole lot more satisfying, and aim to help make more of your exchanges healthy and gently motivating in this manner.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Today can produce opportunities to unwind emotionally and to let go of tension and frustration, dear Aquarius, and you should most definitely grab them. You are more inclined than usual to notice and appreciate the positive, beautiful, and magical side of people and situations, and this has the effect of softening rough edges and tense feelings. While the focus tends to be intangible and spiritual levels of your life today, it can also be a good time for intuition on business and financial matters. Your imagination is strong now, and if you can combine this with practical intelligence, you are in great shape.

Pisces

Pisces

This can be a wonderful day for attracting positive attention in quiet ways, dear Pisces. You’re also in a good position to strengthen a friendship or to let go of negativity or tension and put it behind you. You have a stronger desire than usual to bring a spirit of true friendship and acceptance to your love relationships, but also a loving, warm quality to your friendships. There can be a warm feeling of understanding between you and someone special, and a sense that you’re accepted for who you are, with no disclaimers necessary!

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, January 29th

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

You may get final word on a matter, likely related to career, business, or life path, that has caused you some ups and downs in the last while, dear Aries (since December). There is a lot of power available to you now in the form of mental focus and determination. Try to use this for good and avoid stubbornness that serves only to frustrate. Relationships can be sensitive today if you’re too focused on work or reputation matters. In your search for the truth, pull back a little to get some perspective once in a while. You have stronger influence today than usual, and people can be drawn to your intensity.

Taurus

Taurus

You’re quite interested in getting your work and routines done today, dear Taurus, but you could be very distracted by an idea or mission to seek the truth that interferes with your plans, perhaps even throwing off much of the day as it plays with your focus. An unresolved matter from the recent past can resurface, this time with more clarity and a chance of resolve. You are certainly one-track minded today, but be sure that it serves you well rather than distracts you from what’s truly important. People are drawn to you today, although you may be so distracted that you don’t notice at times!

Gemini

Gemini

You’re emotionally geared towards having some fun and expressing yourself spontaneously today, dear Gemini, but you could become quite invested in an idea or line of thought that pulls you into a serious frame of mind much of the time today. Nurture this to the point that it serves you well, such as for getting to the bottom of a matter or putting effort into a worthwhile project. You’re unlikely to accept superficial solutions or observations, but try not to take it too far, or push conversations to negative places. You might have a breakthrough in thinking now.

Cancer

Cancer

There is a stronger than usual need to focus on family or to stick with familiar settings and situations today, dear Cancer. You may be looking for simplicity now, but complications are likely to emerge despite this. You could find your thoughts frequently pulled towards a relationship matter, and this may be a repeat theme since December. For others, a significant person in your life may be quite insistent with you. Whether or not you want to “go there” in a conversation, it may end up moving in that direction anyhow. Don’t accept undue pressure for an answer coming from someone, but consider approaching an uncomfortable topic if it needs airing. You may very well grow and thrive as a result.

Leo

Leo

This can be a busy day, dear Leo, and part of the reason is that your curiosity is strong and you can easily find yourself dabbling in various projects, busy with errands or communications, and not wanting to be tied down to any one thing or place. However, there is a strong call to resolve a matter, especially related to work or health. This can be an issue that first emerged in December. Perhaps you need to make a final decision now, and this requires your complete attention, despite all of the other things going on in your life. Avoid succumbing to pressure or pushing a matter to the point that you have tunnel vision.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

A good part of you craves simplicity today, dear Virgo, with the Moon in your solar second house all day. It’s an emotional need that naturally emerges after the Moon spends time in your own sign for two plus days, so it makes sense to honor this craving to some degree. However, the day can build in intensity, and you can become quite engrossed in a matter that seems to beg for resolution or further investigation, likely related to a creative project, child, or romantic relationship. An important conversation, new discovery, or big reveal can occur now. A project that has frustrated you in recent weeks can now show quite a turnaround, although it can also consume a whole lot of your attention.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

The Moon is in your sign all day, dear Libra, encouraging a need to explore your emotions and to prioritize your needs and personal plans. There is a desire for spontaneity and freedom, although you are also looking to others for acknowledgement or reinforcement. However, today there can be the need to resolve a matter or fulfill an obligation that takes you away from your personal interests, or you could find that your mind frequently turns to a matter from the past or an unresolved problem, and this distracts you from the “free spirit” energy you would like to enjoy now. Put effort into a problem area, have an important conversation, and aim to bring something to a resolution, but avoid doing this to the point that you’re consumed by it and no longer have time or energy to feed your spirit.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

The Moon’s presence in your privacy sector urges you to take a break from too much emotional pressure or drama today, dear Scorpio, and this is important to honor, at least in spots. However, a complicated matter can emerge that requires your complete attention for a while. You’re likely to have to revisit a recent problem today, but this time you’re better equipped to handle it. You have more information now, although you’ll still need to concentrate and perhaps investigate a little further before you get to a point of resolution. Your thinking can be breakthrough now, and a project can push forward or at least get over a major hump.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

The Moon’s transit of your solar eleventh house encourages you to detach yourself a little from the material world, dear Sagittarius, in order to better enjoy yourself with others and to challenge yourself to improve and try out new ideas. However, a Mercury-Pluto alignment in your resources sector challenges this need, and turns your attention to a problem that needs revisiting. The good news is that you are in a better position to resolve a matter that has bothered you for some time. Take advantage of your increased ability to focus and get to the bottom of a matter, but be sure to take some time away from an issue if it’s too drawn out to refresh your spirit.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

Your need to focus on professional ambitions or long-term goals and responsibilities is strong today, dear Capricorn, but personal matters can be pressing as well. There can be a watershed moment now related to an idea, understanding, or project. You are inclined to throw yourself into an investigation or a seeking of the truth or bottom line. This can certainly stir up inner conflicts and possibly some resistance or frustration in others, so aim to tone things down if possible, but do take advantage of an opportunity to bring a new perspective to an old problem. You’re in a great position to finally resolve an irritating problem that may have first surfaced in December.

Aquarius

Aquarius

The Moon in your solar ninth house all day encourages a free-spirited approach to the world today, dear Aquarius, and this is something you need after a few days of introspection. Even so, Mercury and Pluto are coming to an alignment, and this points to intense thoughts, a mystery to solve, or an old problem that begs resolution. While this is likely to be a private matter, even if you keep it to yourself, others around you could sense that you’re not especially “present” and perhaps quite preoccupied. Aim to put effort into resolving a matter, but avoid taking this so far that you neglect to feed your spirit and enjoy yourself.

Pisces

Pisces

You’re now in the position to tackle a recurring problem with new understanding and insight, dear Pisces. Mercury aligns with Pluto today, as it did in December and then again while Mercury was retrograde last week. You have the chance to break new mental ground, particularly related to a friendship or long-term goal. Try not to get stuck in old habits and methods, and instead look to push just enough to get to a new level of understanding. Look for ways to improve, grow, and learn so that you can move past a frustrating matter. Discussions and ideas emerging now can help create turning points.

 

An Overview of Your Love Horoscopes for the Weekend of Friday, January 29th

 

 

 

An Overview of Your Love Horoscopes for the Weekend of  Friday, January 29th

Unconditional love


The Moon goes from Libra to Scorpio this weekend, which can help the mood focus on meeting relationship needs and deeper desires. Communication will be dicey with Mercury at a harsh angle to Pluto and Uranus, so don’t engage in romantic squabbles. If you heed this advice, you’ll be able to make the most of the best part of this weekend –Venus will be at a perfect angle to Neptune on Saturday. This will help support romantic vibes all weekend long!

Neptune is the higher octave of Venus, which implies that she is capable of unconditional love — a love that overlooks flaws and is willing to sacrifice for the relationship. Since Venus is at a positive angle to Neptune this weekend, you won’t have to worry too much about falling into an unhealthy situation where you’re giving away all of yourself and only being deceived or used by your lover. Instead, you’ll feel the most positive romantic fairytale potential. Enjoy the enchantment!

This Weekend’s Romantic Rating*

* Heart ratings are based on the lunar cycle. They range from low to full, with low indicating a rocky weekend for romance and full indicating plenty of passionate potential.

Elemental Essentials for Friday: The Speaking Stick

Goddess of Light

Elemental Essentials for Friday: The Speaking Stick

The speaking stick is not a tool, exactly. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be a stick. (Confused yet?) The speaking stick is an object that is passed around the circle at the end of many group rituals. As it goes around, each person has a chance to speak uninterrupted for a few moments, and everyone else in the circle simply listens. It is a time for words that come from the heart and calm acceptance.

It can be amazingly moving and empowering. (How often in your day-to-day life does anyone actually stop and truly listen to what you have to say?) The speaking stick can be an actual stick or it can be a large feather, a stone, a shell, or anything else that can be passed from person to person. What is important is that everyone respects the “stick” and what it symbolizes-a moment out of time for each Witch to speak and be heard.
