Tarot Contemplation – Ace of Swords

GD TAROT_Ace Swords

You are very clear headed today.  It’s a good time to look at the big picture of your life.  What do you most deeply value?  Are your values reflected in how you spend your time and energy?  If not, today is a great day to rearrange your priorities.  You will be presented with an opportunity to use your mind to cut through obstacles.  There may be a problem to solve which will lead to personal growth.  You will have the mental focus to make new plans, develop new strategies and commit to effective action.  A new truth will occur to you.  You will understand something in a new way.  You may gain a fresh perspective that is clear and true.  This might be an opportunity to cut away what is unnecessary and leave it behind.  This is an opportunity and a necessity to do the right thing.  Like all Aces, the opportunity must be grasped in order to develop.

Tarot Contemplation – Queen of Pentacles


Nurture yourself and your loved ones today through practical, loving action.  Think of your chores as sacred.  Honor your environment by cleaning it.  Bless your body by eating some nutritious and delicious food and enjoying some gorgeous exercise.  Bestow a little extra care upon your family, housemates, or pets.  The care you invest today will only serve to multiply your abundance.  A person you know or will encounter … or some aspect of yourself that is present, or to be called upon now … is exerting influence in your life now.  This person is very practical and organized, successful in business and in creating a secure, comfortable home for loved ones.  Making sensible decisions paves the way to steady, sustainable progress … therefore, remain well grounded and emotionally balanced as you go about your day.  You will experience feelings of care and the desire to protect others, much like a nurturing mother might feel while caring for her family and friends.  Your concern for the environment inspires you to be more efficient in the usage of your resources.  Do spend time outside in a more natural setting and enjoy the peace.

Tarot Contemplation – The Empress


Today is about nurturing your creativity. Do something you love to do: make art, cook a meal, beautify your home, spend time with your children, work in your garden. Wherever you focus your loving attention today there will be healthy growth. Now is a time to create. Your environment offers you the abundance you need to feel nurtured and comfortable so that you can manifest your vision in the world. Inspiration is all around you. Be sure to nourish yourself with whole foods. Indulge all of your senses. Connect with nature by working in a garden or deeply inhaling the scent of trees and flowers. Connecting with creative, empowered people will enhance your creative spirit. It is a time to celebrate your fertile, sensual, creative self. Your mother or the general principal of mothering may be significant now.

Tarot Contemplation – The Sun


Today is a day for feeling good, having fun and being happy.  Think about what activities make you feel the most content and fulfilled and do that.  Maybe it’s reading a book in a sunny spot … maybe it’s spending time with a dear friend … perhaps even creating art.  It might be helpful to think back to what you loved doing as a child.  It’s a time to reveal everything.  You will benefit by sharing your true feelings and thoughts.  You will have greater clarity and understanding.  It’s a time to celebrate your accomplishments and share them with the world.  Don’t be afraid to shine.  Let your inner child show.  Be playful, creative and curious.  Align your actions and words with your authentic self.  Do what makes you feel excited and warm inside.  Enjoy this burst of energy and vitality because the outcome/answer to your query is “YES”.  Enjoy a wonderful day!

Tarot Contemplation – King of Cups



The royal gentleman has come around for another visit!  You remember this man … kind, loving, compassionate and operates on an even keel.  What a great person to kick off this weekend with … you’re practically assured a wonderful time.  You’re feeling “in the pink”, thanks to your close attention paid to your health advisors and physicians, and enjoying better health these days.  But, don’t allow your exuberance to run away with you where your pocketbook is concerned … refrain from doing any wild spending this weekend.  Remain conservative with your resources and know that one day soon you will have better opportunities to reward yourself for today’s vigilance in the days to come.

Tarot Contemplation – The Hanged Man


You are at another crossroads because you’re leveling up.  Choices … and indecision about wanting to do something, but not quite knowing what that something is, or how to go about accomplishing the task.  Clear your head.  Step back, BREATHE full breaths and relax those shoulders.  Allow your mind to clear with each out-breath to let go of that need to control life, situations, people and things.  REassess/REevaluate and then REdirect your energies … this is the best way to utilize the influences of Mercury REtrograde to get you through this juncture.  REmove notions of self-fulfilling prophecies and pay attention to how you allow yourself to say or think about your life.  Those prophecies ought to be about REnewal and bear some REsemblance to the life you really wish to be.

Sagittarius political activism, Bye bye Jupiter

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology Psychic

Thursday is Thor’s day in honor of the King of the Planets, Jupiter or Jove. The largest planet governs SAGITTARIUS and PISCES traditionally. As J. spends his last day in 12 years in VIRGO, he is cleaning up as he exits, leaving everything as it was when he entered Virgo. Jupiter has learned to watch his P 7 Q’s, take care of his health, budget and be punctual while in Virgo.

Tarot Contemplation – 6 of Cups

6cupsAll the changes you’ve been experiencing over the past several days leaves you feeling a bit nostalgic today and looking back on the way things used to be, back in your salad days.  It’s important not to dwell on the good ‘ole days because those past experiences paved the way to where you are today.  Today, be creative at work and at home.  Try new things.  It’s important now to not be stuck in the past, and that includes going back to ex-lovers.  You are about evolution, not devolution.


Tarot Contemplation – The Tower


Change, change, change!  Trying to hold too tightly to the status quo can be disastrous now.  Roll with the changes.  It is likely that some people/situations that you counted on as support are falling away or have fallen away.  This does not necessarily spell disaster IF you have been working with solid foundations all along.  However, if you’ve built castles in the air those might come crashing down today.  Take heart:  it’s all about your perception, your interpretation of your circumstances.  Is the glass half empty, or half full?  What has fallen away you will be able to replace with much better … your dreams will become more reachable and goals more realistic with some of these fantasies cleared from your space.  You’ll get through today just fine.  Faith and trust in what you know and listening to your intuition more closely will ensure your success.  As things settle down, however, keep your own counsel and use your words sparingly.  People will tend to be argumentative today, so take care to choose your battles.  It’s best to simply  tune out The Noise and walk away with poise!

Tarot Contemplation – Three of Wands


Your finances are flowing better and will be flowing better throughout September.  You are feeling strength from recent hard-won success in your projects and endeavors, and that means others are appreciating the fruits of your work performance.  As your finances continue to even out and stabilize to another level, make the effort to refrain from excessive spending.  In fact, if you can focus on saving a bit more now, you will be set, less stressed and worry-free when that next rainy day comes rolling around.  Your spiritual views are taking on more definition as you continue nurturing and growing your perception about the Way It Is.  Embrace change and accept new information to continue broadening your horizons.
