Apr 15-21

 

Self
Who I Am

Curiosity is an integral tool and focus to use in confirming your life purpose for this week. This same curiosity can foster not only heightened self-actualization, but major breakthroughs in technology, science, and medicine.

 

Possessions
What I Own

You may encounter a tendency or urge to take ownership of other people’s problems this week. Though this may have some temporary value, it is not your primary role or why you’re here.

 

Discovery
How I Learn

The story should come from you this week, and you sense the creative urge to tell it on your own. Adapting the context to fit into others’ belief systems is not in the plan.

 

Family
My Kinship Connections

The pride you have for your immediate family or those you call family will unwrap and reveal itself when circumstances, influences, or events threaten to displace order, harmony, or the way you prefer your family unit to appear this week. Don’t worry too much about what the neighbors may think.

 

Creativity
How I Express Myself

Of course, you feel more complete and better about your endeavors when people want to come play in your sandbox! Fair play does ensure more cooperation but may not ultimately set the stage for unchallenged individuality.

 

Health
My Body, Mind, & Emotions

Some of the stringent demands you’ve placed upon yourself in the past weeks may prove too compulsive to continue in the same manner. The key to relaxing impossible demands is recognizing that the beauty of what you’re striving for really is in the eye of the beholder.

 

Partnership
Who I Share With

Your relationships will undoubtedly transform you this week, particularly the ones that challenge you as an initiator or leader. Last time you checked, it still takes two to tango.

 

Transformation
How I Change

You’re more comfortable in the driver’s seat this week when it comes to the forces of change.

 

Spirituality
How I Connect

Exploring and consolidating the extraordinary is part of your routine this week. You may be surprised just how much.

 

Career
My Livelihood

It’s all about how to contribute more originality through your work, career, or profession. That’s the recognition you need now.

 

Vision
My Goals

You’re pretty clear about your personal level or need for freedom and independence. What may not be so clear this week is why you’re struggling with the subject.

 

Sacrifice
How I Surrender

Boredom could set in this week if you’re too tied to routines. Routine could lead to overindulgence because you’re emotionally stalled out. You need mental stimulation, not mental challenges. Explore something you know nothing about.

Apr 8-14

 

Self
Who I Am

Life’s a stage, and tending to it with this in mind will give you a broader perspective about how to handle its events this week. This is not the time to outperform others. They will act more expressively and generously if you step back a little.

 

Possessions
What I Own

There is an order to what you acquire, and when, that will make a difference in how you afford to live. Don’t let anyone talk you out of this order of accrual.

 

Discovery
How I Learn

Others may not communicate as precisely as you when it comes to certain matters. Toward the end of the week, you may need to allow for this imprecision in order to effectively coordinate your efforts with others.

 

Family
My Kinship Connections

Healthy family harmony doesn’t fall into place this week. Loving and unity requires more effort and education than usual, and more than you’d initially expected or intended. Things left unsaid can be as detrimental as trade secrets that die with their progenitors.

 

Creativity
How I Express Myself

Starting out this week, you need to play more and work less in order to foster more spontaneous creativity, or, to land upon the right concept. The latter part of the week you’ll feel better if you find yourself hard at work in order to bring this creation to fruition.

 

Health
My Body, Mind, & Emotions

The key to improving your overall health or recovering from illness is a well-organized, structured, and consistent routine. It’s not about getting in a rut, though. The key is regularly readjusting your daily commitments and reassessing your priorities as necessary to promote better living.

 

Partnership
Who I Share With

This week you’ll feel more secure if you think through rather than feel through your partnerships. The road to finding personal freedom within the duet may require just the facts and cold logic for the time being.

 

Transformation
How I Change

Confusion about how certain changes develop or the steps to those changes may crop up this week. You have a great vision and the courage to follow it, just difficulty defining the steps to get there.

 

Spirituality
How I Connect

Expanding your spiritual horizon is best found by learning experientially versus academically this week. What may at first seem too impractical or unconventional may be just what your soul needs for growth.

 

Career
My Livelihood

Though ideas may burn bright for the next major career turn, you may momentarily be nostalgically torn between the next step and the accomplishments you’ve worked so hard to achieve. Pressing forward may feel in some ways like abandoning all that you’ve known.

 

Vision
My Goals

Take stock of your friends this week, particularly their unique abilities they bring to your shared experience. Do they adapt to the tide of life like you do? Being aware of that could come in handy.

 

Sacrifice
How I Surrender

You’d like to go with your gut, especially when things are looking up for you. This week, however, you’ll receive a more secure impression if you can undergird your optimism with factual evidence, particularly if sacrifices must be made.

Apr 1-7

 

Self
Who I Am

The seeming all-important role you play as a parent or practicing parent will actually develop exponentially this week with a little downtime and a renewed focus on self-actualization through higher education, spirituality, all forms of communication, or travel. You’ll come back to home base with a larger reference.

 

Possessions
What I Own

Your ability to read between the lines and gauge others’ underlying motivations may be disturbed by feeling emotionally ill at ease about your state of financial affairs this week.

 

Discovery
How I Learn

Part of helping your spirit soar does involve sharing your enthusiasm and new insights with others. It’s part of an ongoing search for inspiration. Pay attention to any news coming your way, as well.

 

Family
My Kinship Connections

Family obligations or chaotic schedules make it difficult to keep precision and beauty at the workplace this week. You could make a big fuss, but the ensuing drama also feeds off an internal need to tackle the problem and land with sure footing.

 

Creativity
How I Express Myself

Any disconnection with others co-creatively this week comes from a practiced reticence and refusal to relax, especially with risky endeavors. It feels better to delay gratification again although you sometimes ask yourself why the torture.

 

Health
My Body, Mind, & Emotions

The week begins with scattered priorities and goals regarding how you may best serve, but you button it up and organize on the forefront in order to surge forward in this service or the career behind this service.

 

Partnership
Who I Share With

You need the mutual respect of the one you’re with this week, as in dancing with the one who brought you. Don’t introduce a double standard unless you want to be on the receiving end of the same.

 

Transformation
How I Change

You have the ability to initiate an amazingly innovative and transformative process this week. You can bring its ingenuity equally to others if you aren’t distracted by the way things appear to be.

 

Spirituality
How I Connect

Traveling or journeying in body or in spirit may not initially take you to the most practical destinations, but in order to gain a greater understanding about your own personal autonomy, you need to step outside your comfort zone.

 

Career
My Livelihood

The restlessness you may find at work this week comes from an ongoing personal desire to experience more security by taking on more responsibility. It may not look appealing at first glance. Don’t rush the climb and you will be fine.

 

Vision
My Goals

You have practical and reliable visions for continuing your social life and friendships the way they are. Dependability and loyalty are two strong suits you need to bring to the table this week.

 

Sacrifice
How I Surrender

Others’ emotional limitations may lead you to second guess yourself this week. Some things are too painful to bring to the surface just now. There’s a time and place for this unconscious unfolding later.

Tarot Symbols & Meanings Mar 1

Tarot Symbols and Their Meanings

A richer way of connecting to your soul’s purpose and to the Divine within you is through symbolic language. Sometimes symbols materialize in a very timely way to underscore a bit of guidance that has already been nudging its way into your life. Symbols can be life-altering when they present with such clarity, you absolutely know what you must do or how you must do it. Other times we carry symbols with us for awhile, unaware how much they are deeply ingrained within our personalities and connected to our individual choices. Symbols are around us constantly. You may see hundreds of symbols daily without consciously acknowledging them.

“Truth did not come into the world naked, but it came in types and images.”
—The Gospel of Saint Phillip

The Empress

 

“Form gives us a place to begin, form is outline; substance is what fills it in. I will fill in the lines with the real me.”

Melody Beattie

While the feminine symbol of the High Priestess feels aesthetically esoteric and austere, the energy projected by The Empress is that of a warm hug. She expresses the emotional, instinctual connection and drive of mothers to nurture and protect those they love, particularly their own young. She offers the world around her enhanced creativity and abundance.

Some commentaries associate The Empress energy with pure feminine emotion, sexuality, and fertility. While there is no denying that she symbolically holds these attributes, we understand her nature better when we see her as an outgrowth or creation of Magician and High Priestess creativity combined. In the Grand Scheme of things, our spiritual nature having a human experience on earth is really the fine mixture of the Magician’s yang and the High Priestess’s yin, and its outpouring into the creation of The Empress in physical existence.

In our historical and religious culture passion, emotion, and sexuality may be viewed as weak, base, or dirty. The body and the natural world, however, are realities that must be integrated into our spiritual experience in order to be understood, rather than denied.

Before Prince Gautama Siddhartha became Buddha, his father provided every physical satisfaction he could desire, in hopes he would not be interested in or moved by the suffering of the kingdom outside. The scheme backfired. Once Gautama had experienced complete sensuality, he could choose to leave it behind.

When we look at The Empress, we form a connection with Mother Nature, abundance, earthbound nature, children and babies. The Empress is linked with the number Three: the Trinity, Creation, or the joining of Yin and Yang (Duality) in order to create expansion of life. A fully actualized three (3) knows how to enjoy life and finds joy in one’s intelligence, humor, creativity, charm, communication, and optimism.

Feelings of insecurity, inferiority, and inadequacy are laid aside when we enter into the true focus of what The Empress is all about. When we observe the incredible ingenuity (and humor) in wildlife, for example, we have no doubt that Mother Nature knows what she is doing.

It’s easy to fuse some of the tarot meanings between The Empress and the High Priestess, but The Empress’ characteristics are always transmuted into earthy, sensual, and even what we might describe as hedonistic experiences. Her energy involves finding yourself in a place in life where you can appreciate and enjoy fruitfulness, accomplishments, love, beauty, and pleasure.

If the High Priestess and The Empress are paired as symbols, they represent the need to balance esoteric thought with emotion. If you are in a place where you have been excessively involved emotionally, the High Priestess may show up to remind you about the problems with emotional enmeshment and call you back to reality. If you’re stuck inside a cold, mental viewpoint, The Empress may turn up to ask you to remember how your heart feels. After all, when you are engaged with life at its deepest level, everything you touch is enhanced and made beautiful. Until we learn to experience the outer world completely we cannot hope to transcend it.

Take stock of how emotionally invested you are in what you are currently doing. For ultimate satisfaction, you need to make it count. You may find yourself surprised by your protective commitment to something. Mothers are usually startled by the internal rage they experience when they rise up a to protect their babies the first time.

If we live life in the vacuum of a totally monastic space, we are forgetting part of the reason for our incarnation. Incarnating to earth does also involve enjoying the pleasures life offers us, when they are present. When we find the ability to appreciate even small pleasures, that’s making life count! Marking and enjoying any new life, opportunity, or creation and extolling it is what The Empress symbol is all about. Our emotions, which are our connectors to this earth plane, are as much a part of us as anything else.

The Empress as a symbol can also predict that Universal energy is about influence you in some way. It may be a small miracle, or more. A good favor might appear out of a coincidence, or even seem like nothing more than dumb luck. You can know, however, that it is no accident when it extends from the energy of The Empress.
