THIS MAJOR ARCANA CARD CALLS YOU TO FREE UP YOUR SPIRIT

THIS MAJOR ARCANA CARD CALLS YOU TO FREE UP YOUR SPIRIT

In this series, Jamie Richardson of Ember + Aura Tarot explains how to embrace the message of each major arcana card. 

In Tarot, The Fool is depicted by a childlike adventurer awash in the energy of her own reckless optimism. She feels the unknown path before her pulling her along and doesn’t get too caught up in the details of where she’s going, nor how she’ll get there. She’s unburdened by any pressure to look cool and couldn’t care less about the looks or whispers that may come along the way. Each step brings her closer to her highest self—that’s all she needs to know.

These days, the world seems like a pretty serious space. Every headline is foreboding. Every social page is a contest. Everyone wants to sell us something. If we’re not careful, we wind up guarded, dissatisfied, and jaded. So, naturally, the time is right to revisit our inner Fool.

How do you recover this valuable flood of naivety when the well is seemingly dried up? Begin by scanning your mind for signs of attempted perfectionism, as this is not in keeping with sweet release. The Fool wears mismatched accessories just because it feels right. She leaves the bed unmade so she can do some morning journaling instead. She ignores the chipped nail. She doesn’t return the text while driving—and promptly forgets to return it at all.

Next, close your eyes and ask yourself, “Where are the white-knuckled areas of my life?” Where have you allowed yourself to think you must have total control? What if everything actually doesn’t depend on you? What a concept! The Fool moves in a state of pure flow. Embrace this want of comfortability by putting on something long and drapey; wear cashmere, if you have it. Literally let your hair down and go barefoot. Visualize yourself un-structuring. Practice letting go.

Finally, the Fool defies convention by listening only to her inner guidance. For children, this comes naturally, as the judgmental voices of nay-sayers and critics have yet to take root in their minds. What did you love to do as a child? When you picture childhood, what does it look like in its happiest moments? I see myself sitting beneath trees, surrounded by my watercolors and paper and dogs. Can you remember your original sense of rightness? It remembers you.

When The Fool comes for you in Tarot, you can be sure the Divine is calling you to trust in Her again and to take a bold step in faith. Your path will most likely be anything but straight, with the next destination forever just out of your line of sight. But with the wisdom of The Fool you can throw caution to the wind. She is here to remind you that your own originality is, and always has been, enough.

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for January 12

The Sun

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sun is an invitation to a supportive relationship in which you can be yourself around your significant other. You feel relaxed and loved, with a sense of peace of heart. You’ve struck gold and entered into a new realm. Keep looking if this is not how you feel because it is how things should be. You can’t expect improvement in a long-term union if you do not take effective steps to create it.

Your Daily Tarot Card for January 12 is The Moon

Your Daily Tarot Card for January 12

The Moon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: imagination, dreams, emotion, competition (the dogs), illusion!

Astrological Correspondence: Pisces

The Moon in all its phases represents the world of dreams, illusions, and the subconscious. Traditionally the symbol of the feminine, the card’s meaning encompasses the maternal, the Great Mother, womanhood, and cycles. The Moon is an ambivalent card, and its imagery signifies the difficulty to see things clearly: simultaneously inspiring and lacking courage, enchanting and bewildering, deceptive and receptive – all sides of the same coin. Signaling fluctuating moods and uncertainty we must pay attention to our dreams, confront our subconscious and deal with the issues that come to the surface in order to progress to a higher level of awareness. Being able to put our imagination and creative talents to good use is an added bonus. Negative qualities such as ambiguity, confusion, hidden fears, and deception can be causes for failure.

THE WORDS YOU NEED TO HEAR IN 2019 — BASED ON YOUR ZODIAC SIGN

THE WORDS YOU NEED TO HEAR IN 2019 — BASED ON YOUR ZODIAC SIGN

Mantras have been uttered throughout history—in various religions and all over the world—to offer voice to inner workings and wants. A mantra is a series of words or sounds that can aid you in meditation, and in shifting habitual thought patterns. Mantras are also useful in spell casting, as speaking words aloud—sometimes over and over—is thought to help in manifesting whatever you are seeking into existence. At the very least, a well-chosen mantra can provide a sense of self-confidence and empowerment.

The birth of the New Year is a time of hope, and of preparation for whatever is on the horizon.  A useful mantra can help guide you down life’s path (your path) in 2019.

Here, the mantra that will benefit you the most, based on your sun sign.

 

ARIES

I CONTROL MY INNER FLAME.

You’re the type of person who loves to take on life with the full force of your seemingly never-ending energy. But, while you may have great momentum during the first few months of the year, things will likely slow down when the planets make their transits into the earth and water signs. Don’t get discouraged. Instead, nurture that inner flame, and channel it into the things you can control.

 

TAURUS

I AM STRONG ENOUGH TO WITHSTAND ANY STORM.  

As an earth sign, you try to stay as grounded and are not the biggest fan of change. Sorry, Taurus—prepare to kiss your current life goodbye in 2019 as Uranus enters your sign, where it will remain for the next seven years. By the end of that period, every aspect of the life you know now will be shaken up. Embrace it! Change is not to be feared — it serves to guide us to our higher selves. Like a mighty oak tree, your deep roots allow you to endure any storm.

 

GEMINI

WHY NOT ME?

The needs of loved ones will become a major priority in 2019, but if you lose yourself in taking care of others, you risk not being heard when you express your own needs. Jupiter’s transit into your opposite sign of Sagittarius—where it will stay for the majority of the year—will allow plenty of time for self-reflection. Why not you? The answer: No reason at all! It’s time to take your power back and dazzle the world with your sparkle.

 

CANCER

I DESERVE TO RECEIVE THE LOVE I GIVE TO OTHERS.

As the caretaker of the zodiac, you often devote your energy and boundless love towards others. While we love you for this, 2019 is a year for self-care. Let’s face it, you’re burnt out. Luckily, North Node will be in your sign, guiding you down a path of healing. It’s time to take the love that you give to others and allow it to fill your soul. It won’t be easy, but it’s worth it.

 

LEO

THE FIRE THAT BURNS WITHIN ME LIGHTS MY PATH.  

2019 is a year of transformation for you, Leo. Time to shed your old identity and prepare for your next role, even if it keeps you out of the spotlight for the time being. You’ve never been fearful of change but navigating the darkness of transformation—most likely alone—can be scary. Fear not, as your inner light will continue to shine and guide you towards the next phase of your life’s journey.

 

VIRGO

I RECEIVE ALL THAT I ASK FOR.

Thanks to Jupiter in Sagittarius and Venus’s two conjunctions with the planet for most of the year, this is a time of reconnecting with family and finding a sense of home wherever you travel. While you’ll love the strong familial bonds and the feeling of home you’ve created, you may feel silenced—or that your needs are not being met. It’s okay to ask for what you need; people want to help you just like you help them.

 

LIBRA

I ATTRACT POSITIVE PEOPLE.  

Admit it, Libra, you are a chronic people pleaser—even in regard to those who may not deserve your attention. Luckily, 2019 is the year to cut off anyone who brings you down. With two full moons in your sign during the first half of the year, take a look at your friend group and opt to remove anyone who has proven to be toxic. You’ll be surprised how much lighter you feel once you’ve spoken your truth.

 

SCORPIO

MY VULNERABILITY IS MY STRENGTH.

You pride yourself on being the most mysterious person in the room—being called “hard to read” is a compliment. However, the mysticism you’ve cultivated will not cut it in 2019, as Pluto keeps pushing you to express your truth. This does not come easily to you, but with North Node in Cancer and the three solar eclipses on the Capricorn/Cancer axis, you’ll find that people will love you more for being open with them. Break down your walls and let in love.

 

SAGITTARIUS

I HAVE MAGIC MOVING WITHIN ME.

This is a big year for you! With Jupiter settling into your sign for most of the year, you feel larger than life. There’s nothing you can’t achieve, and a duet of conjunctions with Venus this year will keep the optimism flowing. Be careful not to overdo it, thus conjuring some calamity in your personal life. Honor yourself and your inner magic by taking care of your health and well-being.

 

CAPRICORN

I HONOR MYSELF AND TRUST MY INTUITION.

Sometimes it feels like you are carrying the world on your shoulders, like Atlas of mythology. It’s very hard for you to give up responsibility—or even take a vacation. But if you value your mental health, you need to take some of that weight off your shoulders. While the planets push you into a workaholic realm, use your intuition to make the best decisions. You want to help everyone, but it’s important to stay loyal to yourself.

 

AQUARIUS

REBELLION TAKES DEDICATION.

You hate to play by the rules. So, with Saturn and Pluto enter Capricorn and stay there for most of the year, you may feel restricted and suffocated—which could cause tension between you and any loved ones that don’t share your views. Don’t back down! Use 2019 to carve your own path and find like-minded souls. No one ever started a revolution single-handed. Have faith in your cause.

 

PISCES

I GROUND MYSELF IN AUTHENTICITY.

You’ve always prided yourself on being your authenticity. But with Neptune in your sign, the perception of who you are will become unclear to everyone — including yourself. This disconnect between who you are and who people believe you are could lead to quite the crisis in identity. The only way to avoid distress is self-reflection. Remember who you are at the core of your being, and stay true to that person.

CHINESE NEW YEAR 2019: A CHINESE ZODIAC GUIDE TO THE YEAR OF THE EARTH PIG

CHINESE NEW YEAR 2019: A CHINESE ZODIAC GUIDE TO THE YEAR OF THE EARTH PIG

This year, Chinese New Year (also known as the Lunar New Year) falls on Tuesday, February 5. Though this is a full month after the western celebration of the new year, this holiday marks the change from the year of the earth Dog to the year of the earth Pig.

Most notably, this year is all about devotion to friends and family. Pig years are great for spending time with those you love. Make sure you create space for meals with people who important to you!

Of course, the main thing to watch out for during Pig years is a tendency to overindulge. Keep your spending in check, and at all those meals with your friends and family, watch your portion sizes. Take steps to rid yourself of bad habits and addictions. Keep this in mind, and 2019 can be a very productive year for you. The earth element is practical and fiscally responsible. Take some time to set your goals and look into ways to procrastinate less and to release fears of failure and success. You will likely have increased willpower and focus for your most desired objectives.  Patience will be rewarded and so “slow and steady” wins the race. Chip away at your bigger goals by doing a little bit each day.  

But most of all, connections have the potential to grow stronger, and new, beneficial bonds can be made. Paying things forward, focusing on kindness, and being considerate to others will bring you opportunities this year.  

HONORING CHINESE NEW YEAR

Unlike western traditions like champagne, noisemakers, and fireworks, the traditional ways to mark Chinese New Year tend to be more symbolic, such as wearing something to mark the opportunities coming your way or saying pleasant things to everyone you meet to bring luck to yourself and others.

This day that sets the tone for the rest of the year, so spend some time spreading kindness, offering compliments to others — as well as to yourself. (Sidenote: skip the chicken entree. It’s said if you eat chicken on Chinese New Year, you’ll spend the year scratching in the dirt for your money!)

Read to discover how your Chinese Zodiac sign interacts with the year of the Pig.

 

YEAR OF THE EARTH PIG, BASED ON YOUR CHINESE ZODIAC SIGN

RAT 

Rat sneaks in to steal Pig’s dinner, Pig chases Rat away.  

You need to be quick on your feet this year. But good news! No one’s quicker than lucky Rat. Everything you want is there for the taking but you need to make sure you’re first in line.  

 

OX 

Ox and Pig live happily on the farm together.  

A positive, happy year for Ox natives. The course you set yourself on last year now shows you it was the correct choice to make. The road ahead smooths out and you make great progress.  

 

TIGER 

Tiger and Pig face off and spar… guess who wins?  

It’s a little challenging this year as you seem to be hearing “no” more often than you generally like. However, even taking the smallest amount of action brings you great results. You’ll end the year with a win.  

 

RABBIT 

Rabbits dine well on what falls outside the Pig’s pen. 

A lucky year for Rabbit as you are in harmony with the energy. Your sensitive, intuitive nature causes you to be in the right place at the right time. Finding supportive people to help you is easy this year.  

 

DRAGON 

Mighty Dragon makes his presence known, Pig sleeps through the show. 

A somewhat irritating year for Dragon as all this lazy, indulgent energy doesn’t seem to benefit you and your goals. Fortunately, you can adjust. Soon you’ll see unexpected ways to profit.  

 

SNAKE 

Snake threatens Pig, Farmer kills Snake.

A challenging year for Snake as Pig is the opposing sign. You are not getting much support this year even from those you love. But no matter, you have the power to accomplish many things especially when others underestimate your abilities.  

 

HORSE

This is a year for making adjustments. Horse natives should not lock themselves into long contracts or rash promises. Give yourself the freedom to change and you will attract many opportunities.  

 

GOAT 

Pigs and Goats dine together.

A happy year for peace-loving Goat. You’re in harmony with the energy of Pig. You will receive a lot of interest in your projects and support for your plans. Let others know how they can help you.  

 

MONKEY 

Monkey teases Pig, Pig doesn’t notice. 

A somewhat frustrating year for clever, energetic Monkey. Others nap when you want adventure and fun. The rest of the world may be shocked at your choices this year but you will prosper if you’re true to yourself.  

 

ROOSTER 

Rooster wakes the farm, life moves along pleasantly.

A harmonious year as you find projects and goals you’ve been working on for a while really start to show some results. There are many opportunities for you this year. Expand your circle of friends and you’ll benefit.  

 

DOG 

Dog herds Pig, Pig ignores Dog .

This will be a much easier year for you. You’ve made some changes and wise choices. Now options will present themselves for your career as well as relationships. The road ahead is clear, obstacles are now gone.  

 

PIG 

Pig enjoys the company of other pigs and the party begins.

It’s your year. This is the beginning of your 12-year cycle. Out with the old and in with the new. Let go of anything or anyone who’s been holding you back. As you release what you don’t want, you will be showered with new opportunities. Enjoy.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow…..

Your Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, January 13

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room

 

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

What do you think happens when we worry about things which are not under our control? We lose any control we had and start to feel scared and anxious. So, whatever it costs you in friends and pride you are going to have to say what needs to be said today.

 

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Be gentle with yourself please Aries, as the progress you need to make requires baby steps, not big ones. You’re missing people who used to be a regular part of your life, but evolution is all about growth and moving forward. Embrace this.

 

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

You have not done something you were supposed to do and in the process you have left yourself feeling disappointed. Look at the clock Gemini, you still have time! Children bring joy with something they do in your honour.

 

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Don’t be afraid to tell others what it is you want and expect from them, or you are only going to end up giving some very mixed signals. People are used to a sign such as you wearing their heart on their sleeve, so don’t stop now.

 

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

What is your passion in life Leo and what is it you want to achieve? It is only by answering this question with total honesty that you will be able to commit to the next stage of your life. Not big changes, huge ones Leo!

 

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

It’s not like you to be shy Virgo, but it would seem that someone most definitely has got you lost for words. Try not to play games tonight, although the moon will be encouraging you! Fact, not fiction will get you what and who you want.

 

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Try not to believe what others say this weekend, as many of the signs really are talking for the sake of it. Wouldn’t it be far better for you to put your time and energy into returning those calls which you owe to several people?

 

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

You are approaching a really exciting time of your life Scorpio, where you no longer worry so much what other people think about you. Instead, you want to taste success and the things you used to feel fearful of you now embrace.

 

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Try not to be jealous of the attention which others are getting, your turn will come. Truth be told Sagittarius, you should be pleased the other faces in your life are all beginning to get along.

 

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

The way you view yourself is changing and I really like the more confident air which has befallen you. Try not to gang up against a family member who I see has already taken more than they can handle.

 

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

If you can be patient with a close one who has been acting rather strangely of late, then you will learn that it was other issues and not you that were making them act in such a nervous manner. From here on in you work as an unstoppable team.

 

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Have more faith in your work or you are going to end up convincing your close ones that you don’t really want to stay on the path you’re on, when you and I know you’ve merely had a blip.
