Tarotscopes are weekly insights inspired by oracle cards and the Zodiac.
This week I was inspired to ask Ancestor for Messages.
Sometimes following an intuition is simply noticing the patterns that appear in your life. I received several messages over the last week to make time to connect with Ancestor Wisdom. A random horoscope, a conversation at a birthday celebration, and an infographic about Ancestors. After seeing the infographic on Instagram I knew that this week we would ask ancestors for insight.
What messages can our Ancestors share with each sun sign through the mirror of the Tarot this week?
Wow! The Ancestors had a lot to share! As soon as the decision was made and the candles was lit my studio felt crowded with energy. The Art Nouveau tarot deck that I use for Tarotscope readings practically buzzed in my hand. Even other people in chat commented on the heightened energy. As a result every sign ended up with two cards this week for their Ancestor Message. I suppose you can't be too surprised when you invite over 4,000 spirits to share their wisdom with you that they would have a lot to say.
Over the weekend the Sun transitioned into Virgo, and so 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 flash of Aha! Find your sign and see what bubbles up for you in the upcoming week based on the wisdom of the Tarot.

Aquarius, be gentle with yourself this week as you make decisions. If you have been choosing between two options your Ancestors advise you to be patient. If you were leaning towards on choice make time to meditate, pause, or consider the impact of this path. Is it possible you are choosing this path because it is familiar or comfortable? Or are you pushing yourself relentlessly into uncharted territories. It is okay to take a moment to reconsider and find surety in your decisions this week.
