Two of Swords
You’ve come to a crossroads and it’s time to make a choice. Things are a bit rocky emotionally and your trying to use logic to find the way out. Right now, using that logic is hindering you. It’s time to listen to those emotions that are making waves to have attention paid to them. Aries energy is always ready to go and push forward, but this month take some extra time when making decisions. Relax, take a breath and really feel into the decision. Feel it in your body before making a decision.
April 20- May 20
Ten of Wands Reversed
You’re feeling overwhelmed with all of the things that need to get done and some things might be slipping away from you. Being a Taurus, this is really unsettling for you. Instead of things moving along slowly, you feel like your energy is being torn in so many different ways that it’s causing you stress. Take inventory of what’s on your plate and prioritize what you have to do. Sometimes making a plan or even writing things down can help reduce the stress and help you realize that you don’t have as much on your plate as you thought. Slow down, have a cup of tea and make a priority list.
May 21- June 20
The Fool Reversed
The Taurus energy has you feeling cautious about making your next leap. Instead of following your dreams off into the sunset like you normally do, your finding hesitation. You might be having second thoughts about whether or not this new adventure is financially responsible or not. Take some time to make a plan, but don’t not do something because you’re scared. Once you start moving in the direction you want to go, the Universe will have your back.
June 21- July 22
You’re feeling very connected to your intuition right now. Everything seems to be lining up for you and you seem to just know things, sometimes before they happen. Your normal connection with people and their emotions is starting to tune into the cycles of nature right now. Spring has sprung and you are feeling the vibrations of new growth. Use these vibrations to stay grounded and start something new that will provide hope and inspiration to others.
July 23- August 22
Page of Pentacles
Now is the time to learn something new. The energy of Taurus and Pentacles implies that it might be something to do with the earth, nature or finances. There is the possibility of some money coming your way, if you use your knowledge in the right way. This is your sign to learn everything that you can through classes, books, and hands on training. You might find yourself curling up with some good books on a new topic on Friday nights instead of going out on the town- if that’s still a thing. So get cozy this month in your favorite chair.
August 23- September 22
The Sun Reversed
Your finding the earth energy of Taurus to really be amplifying your bookworm tendencies and although you might not be getting out as much, you’re not feeling like your missing out on anything. You’re finding happiness at home. Letting out your OCD tendencies when it comes to spring cleaning. The slow home life is feeling good to you right now. Take this time to work on your baking skills or a fresh new recipe.
September 23- October 22
King of Swords Reversed
You’re normal sociable personality is feeling a bit stifled with the heavier Earth energy this month. You might not be feeling super confident in your decisions and that’s got you worried. Try to ground your airy energy into the earth and connect with your intuition. Instead of trying to follow your logic, this month you’re being asked to follow the things that feel good. Let your emotion and intuitive feelings guide you. Know that if you ever feel lost in your emotions that you can ground down into the earth to feel at home again.
October 23- November 21
Things are feeling a bit out of balance for you. You’re having trouble taming your more fiery emotions – anger, assertiveness, passions. With your typical intensity things can be getting a bit out of hand this month. Work to ground and temper those fiery emotions into the earth by going for a cold swim or even some ice baths. Or you could just drink mint tea- but c’mon you’re a Scorpio and when you do something- you do something. This month you really need to pay attention to where you can bring more balance into your life.
November 22- December 21
Nine of Swords Reversed
You’re internalizing your anxieties and they’re coming out as anger and depression. When your anxiety spikes, really listen to what it’s actually concerned about. Dig deep to the cause of the anxiety and work on that thought. Don’t let the anxiety run the show and make things worse. The Taurus energy can help you stay calm and ground your energy instead of letting it run free like a wild fire.
December 22- January 19
Knight of Pentacles
Rectitude means morally correct behavior or thinking- which is exactly what Capricorn is feeling this month. With all of this earthy energy around you are feeling right at home. You find yourself doing only the things that you agree with. You won’t be caught dead doing something you don’t 100% agree with. This is how you need to move forward this month. It’s going to be slow, as this Knight is the slowest in the deck, but you will still be making forward progress. You need to find your own path that you can get behind.
January 20- February 18
Three of Wands Reversed
Things will be calming down for you this month as the drama that you have been dealing with fades away. You can find yourself able to take deeper breaths and get back to the community that you so dearly have missed lately. Feeling the release of tense energy back into the earth has a lightening effect on your spirit. You’ll find yourself feeling lighter. Freer.
February 19- March 20
Seven of Swords Reversed
There some good advice coming your way. You’re normal dreamy energy is a bit hampered by the Tuarean earth energy that’s around. This isn’t holding you back too much though, just enough to plant your feet on the ground and listen for a while. Those around you may be talking about ideas that you may find yourself needing to implement. Whether their advice is directed at you specifically or in general, the advice is solid advice and should be taken. But don’t be deceived by people who don’t have your best interest in mind. Use your intuition and gut feelings that are always there for you to depend on. Don’t be bamboozled by misguided advice.
