Your Erotic Tarot Card for Jan. 18 is The Chariot

Erotic Tarot Card of the Day

The Chariot


January 18, 2019
The Chariot shows that you’re rolling toward a major sexual goal today, willing to forego just about anything and everything else to have that one big O! The thing is, who are you willing to trample over to get there? This card can be a sign to slow down just a bit, because while sex is fun, it shouldn’t be your number one focus right now. You don’t have to come to a complete stop, but pulling back on the reins just a bit will give you the clarity you need to make sure you’re making wise sexual decisions.

Your Tarot Love Card for Jan. 19 is The Wheel of Fortune

Love Tarot Card of the Day

The Wheel of Fortune


January 18, 2019
Today, the truth is told and clears up a situation that has hung on and on. Take direct action now to clear up something that should have been handled long ago. The Wheel of Fortune selected you because you need to know that some parts of the conditions were out of your control. Some events are not the result of something you did. You do have control over how you deal with matters now.

Your Daily Tarot Card for January 18 is Three of Wands

Tarot Card of the Day

Three of Wands


January 18, 2019

This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

A Three in this suit symbolizes an inner balance that allows you to feel more optimistic about new endeavors you are committed to, or want to commit to. In the illustrated Tarots, the human character is standing on his balcony, watching ships leave the harbor, loaded with his goods for far-off ports, dreaming of the fortune he will reap if all goes well. Summon the optimism within you.

This energy must be patient and trusting, because he or she will have to wait some time to find out how the ships have fared. Meanwhile, a lot of resources are tied up until they return with the bounty. Only those truly confident in their ideas and abilities would undertake such a risk. This card represents the energy a person needs to take on great adventures and accomplish noble (and remunerative) deeds.

A detail that sometimes appears in the more esoteric Tarots is a winged wand with two snakes twining around it, called the Caduceus, which is Mercury’s wand. This is an ancient symbol of the healer or shaman, one who can travel between the worlds to rescue souls from death or possession. Perhaps the feeling of empowerment this card represents points to the internal mechanisms of self-healing. Perhaps it refers to the courage it takes to be an entrepreneur or an inventor, which is in itself a magical process — bringing not only opportunity for success, but also an awakening to higher potentials.

Your Horoscopes for Saturday, Jan. 19th

 

Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

In the next few weeks, your popularity will increase. Everyone will want to see your face. (Yes, you will have to get dressed.) This window of time is an excellent time to set future goals and discuss them with others to get their feedback. Try it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

For the next four weeks, the Sun is at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering light (symbolically), which is why bosses, parents and VIPs are going to be so impressed with you. You don’t even have to do anything special. Take this one to the bank!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Travel as much as possible in the next few weeks because you want to have some adventure and a change of scenery! Be a tourist in your own backyard. You can also expand your world through study, film and talking to people from other backgrounds.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will be more focused on taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances and insurance issues in the next four weeks. The good news is that you will get some of this stuff done! Plow through that paperwork. Be ruthless. “Be gone!”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Because the Sun is opposite your sign for the next four weeks, you will be more tired than usual and will definitely need more sleep. However, this polarized position of the Sun will make you focus on your partnerships and close friendships more than usual. How can you improve them?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

By nature, you like to be organized. (This doesn’t mean you are – but you wish you would be.) In the next four weeks, you will work to get better organized and make an effort to work smarter and be more efficient. You will also want to improve your health.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Lucky you! The next four weeks will bring you opportunities to socialize, enjoy parties and playful activities with children, the arts, movies, musical performances and sports events. You will want to have fun! And why not? After all, life is short – and fat.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Welcome every opportunity to cocoon at home and enjoy the company of family in the next four weeks because this will appeal. You want to relax among familiar surroundings and hibernate. This is the perfect time of year to do this.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The Sun will be in your sign for the next four weeks giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of year. You will also attract people and favourable situations to you. Yes, Aquarius rules!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Keep a low profile in the next four weeks because your personal year is coming to an end. Now is the time to give yourself a report card. How well are you doing at the art of living? How do you want your new year to be different? Jot down some ideas. When you write down a wish – it becomes a goal.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer, songwriter, actress Dolly Parton (1946) shares your birthday today. You are innovative, creative and you have a sharp mind. You are also honest and forthright. Because this will be a fast-paced year, get ready for action. Expect fresh excitement! Enjoy travel opportunities and chances to expand your horizons.

Because you want something very much today, (perhaps related to travel, publishing, the media or something to do with medicine, the law and higher education) -you’re prepared to fight for what you want even if you have to stand up to bosses, parents, professors and VIPs. Fist in the air!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Explore yoga, martial arts or jogging — any physical discipline that you enjoy.

A Zen Story for January Full Moon

A Zen Story for January Full Moon

The Zen teacher’s dog loved his evening romp with his master. The dog would bound ahead to fetch a stick, then run back, wag his tail, and wait for the next game. On this particular evening, the teacher invited one of his brightest students to join him – a boy so intelligent that he became troubled by the contradictions in Buddhist doctrine.

«You must understand», said the teacher, «that words are only guideposts. Never let the words or symbols get in the way of truth. Here, I’ll show you».

With that the teacher called his happy dog.

«Fetch me the moon», he said to his dog and pointed to the full moon.

«Where is my dog looking?» asked the teacher of the bright pupil.

«He’s looking at your finger».

«Exactly! Don’t be like my dog. Don’t confuse the pointing finger with the thing that is being pointed at. All our Buddhist words are only guideposts. Every man fights his way through other men’s words to find his own truth».

Full Moon in Leo, Supermoon and Lunar Eclipse: January 21st (Including Horoscopes)

Full Moon in Leo, Supermoon and Lunar Eclipse: January 21st

There are 12 full moons in 2019 and this one is the first of them. On January 21st, there is a Full Moon in Leo (Sun in Aquarius opposite Moon in Leo), a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse. The Moon will be at its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual.

This first lunar eclipse of the year will be visible throughout most of North America, South America, the eastern Pacific Ocean, western Atlantic Ocean, extreme Western Europe, and extreme Western Africa.

The January Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Wolf Moon, because this was the time of year when hungry wolf packs howled outside their camps. Other names for this full moon were Old Moon or the Moon After Yule. But how does it influence us?

January Full Moon for Each Zodiac Sign

Aries: Be creative in love and find creative ways to show people that you love them! There is no need to wait for Valentine’s Day to declare your love – do it right now!

Taurus: Decorating home is a good idea, for today. Surround yourself with things you love! Personalize your kitchen, your bedroom, your office and every place where you spend much time!

Gemini: Find a way to say more with fewer words. Most Geminis are gifted speakers, but there is always place for improvement. Express yourself!

Cancer: Unleash your creativity at work! The first step is to understand that every product or service can be done better.

Leo: Put yourself first! Otherwise, you’ll just accumulate frustration and a frustrated person can’t help anyone.

Virgo: Whatever you do, do on your own! You have to learn to trust your own decisions. Give up living your life to other people’s expectations!

Libra: It is a good idea to knowingly break a rule. The feeling will be great – a real sensation of freedom. Of course, you have to start with small things – don’t do something that can cost you money or freedom!

Scorpio: Today, you’re in the spotlight, whether you like it or not. Take advantage with the situation and prove your skills!

Sagittarius: Your adventurous side takes control. Celebrate it and do something really wild!

Capricorn: There is a high level of financial stress. Probably you created some bad spending habits and now is the best time to change them.

Aquarius: Surprise your partner; come with some creative romantic ideas! Aquarius’s originality and authentic style will help you make the best choice.

Pisces: Old habits are hard to break, but this is what you have to do, today. Start with the bad habits that affect your health. Listening to your own body and its signals will make the difference.

Your Love Horoscopes for Friday, Jan. 18 & Saturday, Jan. 19

Pisces Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

The road to true love might have been winding lately, but the road ahead should appear clearer and straighter now. It’s important you continue looking forward rather than backward at what you feel needs readdressing, correcting – or healing. The time will come soon when you can address any outstanding issues but what’s needed now is a willingness on your part to seize a chance to take positive steps forward without delays and obstacles you’ve grown used to recently.

Pisces tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

A loved one might need reassurance in some way so try to understand and connect with their reasons for this. They might feel as if they’re becoming more of an afterthought to plans or connections you’re making elsewhere in your world or that they have to share you in some way. If the object of your affections needs to feel more special, then one heartfelt gesture on your part could do much to allay their concerns or anxiety.

Capricorn Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

If you push too hard for a love life development to happen too quickly, then you’re inviting trouble and complications. Connect with your signature patience and accept that a certain development won’t be rushed because love works to its rules, not yours. It’s by slowing down and being more of an observer to what’s unfolding now that you’ll pick up a few clues regarding where your love life is heading – and possibly whom you’re heading there with.

Capricorn tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

If someone close accuses you of making a decision that doesn’t consider their needs, then it could touch a sensitive nerve with you. You know the truth surrounding how much consideration has been made on your behalf with whatever you’ve taken the initiative with. Summon plenty of sensitivity should you choose to make this point. Aggression will only fuel two-way aggression.

Sagittarius Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

A delightful realization or epiphany looks set to arrive with a love life matter and not before time! This could alter the course of one romantic plan, but there will be clear and undeniable benefits to this. Something connected with your love life is about to make sense or click neatly into place. Take a moment to remind yourself of the effort you’ve invested so far to get you to this position.

Sagittarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

You might feel you’re having to take control of or make decisions regarding something that should be shared between you and a loved one. You could sense that a partner is becoming too comfortable with you taking the initiative and might need to make clear how you want any aspect of your connection to divvied up or where a stronger sense of teamwork is needed. Restoring balance might not happen immediately, but it can happen.

Scorpio Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

Being aware that you have more work to do to achieve a certain romantic or relationship goal shouldn’t cause you to feel deflated. If anything, you look set to be spurred on to summon that tiny bit more effort needed and doing so could take you one big, reassuring step closer to where you want to be – or closer to who you want to be closer to! Welcome any distraction or delay because they help you to refocus on a love life goal that is urging you to keep the faith.

Scorpio tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

A lack of cooperation or understanding could be the cause of tension or uncertainty in your love life, especially if you’re ready to ring a certain change that a loved one isn’t supportive of. Their reluctance to cooperate could stem from being unsure about how they’ll benefit from it. Explain or re-explain how they feature in what inspires and motivates you. You might need to create a stronger spirit of teamwork with this.

Libra Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

The more you resist the need to make yourself vulnerable with a certain person, the more you’ll delay a potentially magical and immensely heartwarming development. That’s the message from the sky to you now, and it’s important you don’t focus on a negative outcome. If you want to form or strengthen one special connection, then being authentic with your message of love and entering into one conversation with an open mind and heart is the way to go.

Libra tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

A surge of enthusiasm and optimism could bring comfort and reassurance where uncertainty or tension have prevailed in your emotional world or a love connection recently. Your willingness to bring into the open what has been ignored – conveniently or otherwise – could also bring closure or resolution in a way neither you or a loved one anticipated. Don’t question how easily this is achieved, just move onward and upward.

Virgo Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

A love life matter might feel particularly delicate at this time, so be prepared to handle it with care. Maintaining a positive attitude will get you through the other side of any tension between you and the object of your affections, and the more upbeat you can be, the more they’ll be inclined to take a leaf from your book. With both of you on the same page and in the right place mentally, this matter can be nipped in the bud and resolved swiftly and easily.

Virgo tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

If tension exists in your emotional world, then it’s possible a certain slate can be wiped clean and without as much effort or confrontation you thought would be necessary. One sensitive and heartfelt gesture from you can result in it being reciprocated and ensure that a certain troubling issue is short-lived.

Leo Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

Connecting with your playful side and allowing it to come out and play could be what’s needed in your emotional world or a special connection. Apply your unique brand of frivolity to create a sexy, lighthearted vibe that can banish any blues and turn a loved one’s frown upside down. You have a deep well of creativity you can draw from to inject some sexy spontaneity into your love life, so make a concerted effort to do so.

Leo tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

Something – or possibly someone – connected with your romantic past could reopen suppressed memories you might prefer not to revisit. Take the hint that your intuition offers if it tells you to move on. A wound needn’t be reopened, or an uncomfortable scenario replayed in your mind if you’re prepared to look forward instead of backward.

Cancer Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

The idea of taking a passionate risk might be as daunting as it is exciting, but you have an unignorable desire to keep things fresh in your love life at this time. You know, in your heart, what needs to shift in one, special connection and if you need to make the first move to bring the change, then that’s a challenge you’re probably prepared to accept. Push aside any memories of having done so in the past and regretted it. We regret more what we don’t do, and that’s something to remember now.

Cancer tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

If you’ve been puzzled as to why a friend or perhaps a family member has become distant, detached or non-communicative, then might it have something to do with a connection with a loved one? The proverbial penny might drop surrounding why someone who was once friendly has turned cold. They might have reservations or concerns about your partner or love life situation, but apart from being willing to listen to what their issue is, there’s not much more you can or should do.

Gemini Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

To make delightful strides in your emotional world, you and the object of your affections will need to remove yourselves from a certain comfort zone. However, it might be you who’s pushing for a dramatic change while a loved one clings to what’s familiar. What matters most is that you and your sweetheart are committed to introducing a change where one is needed, and if it needs to be introduced more slowly than you’d like, then you might need to live with that.

Gemini tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

If you’re a single Gemini and unsure about where you stand with a potential flame, then you’ll need to look beyond the obvious for clues. Don’t take at face value what’s said or suggested. Look more closely at the subtle but strong signals someone is making that they’re probably hoping you’ll connect with. With an open mind, this could be a test you can pass with ease.

Taurus today’s love horoscope:

Friday 18th of January 2019

A revelation or epiphany related to your current love life circumstances could hit you like a bolt from the blue, now or shortly. However, even if you’re nurturing big, passionate dreams, you still need to take small steps toward a passionate goal. For as long as your heart is unsure about what it feels, it’s important you don’t make a hasty move for the sake of doing something. Be patient and soon you’ll be more prepared to embark upon a plan properly.

Taurus tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

If something between you and the object of your affections is moving at a comfortable speed and synergy between you is improving, then taking things further might be a bit hasty if it has taken you time to get to where you are now. Focus instead on consolidating your current position before instigating any changes. It is possible to do too much, too soon sometimes.

Aries Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

Answers could finally outnumber questions where one love life matter is concerned, but you might need to dial back your curiosity in some way to refrain from inviting more questions! Focus instead on facts you have available and resist any urge to make assumptions where any gaps exist. With a bit more time, whatever appears confusing now will become clearer as a bit more essential information wings its way to you.

Aries tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

If you sense a loved one or potential partner is deliberately overlooking your needs in some way, then this could provoke a strong reaction from you. However, give them the benefit of the doubt, because all might not be what it seems to be. One heart-to-heart conversation could reveal how your needs have been considered – and possibly in a way you haven’t considered them!

Aquarius Daily Love Horoscope

Friday 18th of January 2019

You might be in no doubt about how you and a loved one are on opposite ends of the spectrum where your attitude toward a shared situation is concerned. There might be limits to how further discussion could help get you both of you on the same page at this time, too. If calling time out and returning to this matter at another time feels sensible, then that could reduce stress levels on both sides.

Aquarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 19th of January 2019

It’s not impossible for a deeply concealed fantasy to become a reality where affairs of the heart are concerned. A loved one might be as shocked as they are intrigued by what you reveal. Even if this doesn’t go any further than simply talking about it, it could boost passionate levels on both sides wonderfully. If you have any other concealed fantasies, then now’s a good time to reveal them!
