Tarotscope For The Week Of July 13th

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"jupiter in leo" The emotional intensity of this weekend’s Full Moon in Capricorn left many of us zonked. Is it time to pick up the pieces and move forward? I say YES!

Let’s draw a few cards for your week ahead on the topics of LOVE, MONEY, and WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW MOST:

Ten of Cups, Ten of Pentacles, The Tower!

I drew these cards one at a time, in the order above, for love, money, what you need to know, and I thought to myself YES! YES! Nooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

Although I do have friends and clients who don’t mind seeing the Tower , symbolizing sudden change and shocking surprise, it’s my least favorite card in the deck. In the context of our recent Full Moon however it makes perfect sense. There was much to let go of, to release, and you’re not done yet. This process continues next week for you.

Try to erase from your mind the frightening Rider Waite vision of flames and lightening bolts and falling from the sky and instead picture this: liberation.

What does that look like to you? What does it feel like? You couldn’t get out on your own. You had to be forced. Now you are free.

The two TENS show the most best we can hope for and have. Ultimate love, ultimate safety. I’m not feeling these cards cynically or darkly at all, despite the exploding Tower. In fact, I think the Ten of Cups and the Ten of Pentacles IS your Tower. You may be shocked to discover that your love, family, foundation, and security are as succulent and sturdy as can be.

See? That’s the surprise. You have what you need, but you needed the Tower experience to reveal it.

I drew one more for good luck. Two of Pentacles. Yes, you need to adapt to all the changes, faster than you’d prefer, but fun, just like the juggler’s pins, is in the air. When you see the Two of Pentacles, please know that you have every reason to be hopeful. This card isn’t just a word of advice, that you better feel better or else. It’s letting you know that you WILL feel better and may even enjoy the ride.

In fact hmm I’m feeling the Two here as a kinder, gentler Tower. You got this.

Dear Readers, are you feeling the Tower?

Meditation on The World (Tarot Card)
This is another one of those positive happy cards that always feels vague to me.  I feel YES but what else? And sure I rather see the World than various other cards (Hello Death! Hello Tower!) On a mundane level, I have seen it for TRAVEL, traveling the world. Tarot is a funny thing. So many Tar

Mercury Enters Virgo & The Hermit (Tarot Card)
Mercury enters the sign of Virgo on Friday. What is Virgo? The helper, the fixer, the saver, do-gooder, healer, witch, the practical magician and the lover of detail. The meticulous housekeeper. She may not be a cleaning genie but ORDER is a must. Worrier. Servant. She only wants to help -- as sh

Meditations on the Sun (Tarot Card)
The first stage is shock. This is the same for all life transitions, including being born. Then you enter stage two, the Sun stage. You're adjusting. You know where you are. Stage two, the Sun stage, is when you have to find some light in the matter, no matter how small, how measly its blaze.

TarotScope for the Week of August 10th: LOVE
What happens is people get bored and they flit from one relationship to the next. Looking for that elusive… something. So that they will not get bored anymore. Boredom =  discomfort with how things are right now. What one of my poetry teachers called "the irritable reaching after fact."  She
