Tarotscopes are weekly insights inspired by oracle cards and the Zodiac.
This week's insights were centered around JOY!
The questions answered are based on your birth, your Sun Sign, and not necessarily the location of the stars on a given day. For this week we asked for wisdom from the Art Nouveau Tarot Deck and sought specifically to answer the question:
How can each sun sign orient towards Joy & Happiness in the week ahead?
Some of the cards this week were reminders that the key to finding joy is already available in our lives, homes, and careers. Other cards revealed possible pitfalls, that if given too much energy could drain joy away. Every card had a meaningful message for each sun sign. It would seem the wake-up and shake-up energy from the Uranus retrograde, which began last Saturday, is influencing the way Joy is going to show up this week. For all signs, paying attention to big shifts could be the key.
As the sun is in Leo this week we began the readings there. Find the Full Broadcast on my Twitch Channel or scroll down to find the insight for your specific Sun sign. If you are unfamiliar with your Sun sign it is based on your birthday, and the rough dates for each sign is listed below. Or find your whole chart on amazing sites like astro.com
I draw these cards in hopes of sparking your own reflection with your inner landscape, each draw an opportunity for the spark of Aha! Find your sign and see what bubbles up for you in the upcoming week based on the wisdom of the Tarot.
