WELCOME TO SOMETHING NEW!
I’m so excited to be embarking on the next leg of this journey. Thank you for meeting me here. Below you will find the general card for the week as well as the music mix. To read your individual Tarotscope by sign, go to http://mwtarotscopes.com (if you are not already there) and click on the rather enticing pink button on the left which says, “Weekly Tarotscopes Subscription.” You will then be directed to choose your preferred subscription option. Thank you again for your support and participation.
I discuss the most glaring astrological transits and aspects below under the general card for the week. In addition we will also have a New Moon in Sagittiarius on Saturday the 22nd. This is a particularly good New Moon to make wishes on because Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, planet of gifts and luck. The Sun, the Moon and Venus will all be in Sagittarius squaring Neptune, which, as I mention below can add an element of delusion or optical illusion to the picture. It isn’t necessarily a good time to go out and get what you want, but it is a good time to think about what it is you want in a general sense. You probably have at least a few of what I call “seed-starters” in your life, those are things that you feel pretty unclouded about. For example my dog is a seed-starter of love, I can think about how much I love my dog and then at the New Moon say, “I’d like to expand on that please.” Sagittarius invites us all to ask ourselves what we’d like to expand on and grow into.
Just a reminder:

2 OF WANDS
It is interesting that the card for the week is a Wands card, which suggests the element of fire, because many of the weeks aspects are rather watery, in nature and feeling. The most pressing at the moment is Venus’ square to Neptune which will happen tomorrow (November 20th). This aspect can elicit a very pleasant feeling, both dreamy and loving, but it also has a tendency to support delusion. It’s the old “rose-colored glasses syndrome” or the “no-glasses syndrome,” since there is a tendency to gloss over details and only absorb the general shape of something. Barry Perlman of Astrobarry.com said, in his discussion of the upcoming Venus aspects entitled, “A Very different Venus” that while this aspect can open up a sense of compassion for others it can also “inspire us to sacrifice our own interests on behalf of someone else, to deny the faults or failures in another person.”
The other thing I’d like to add to this bubbling brew is Chiron’s station to go direct on Sunday in Pisces, which we are likely to feel for 5 days on either side of Sunday- so right now, as we speak and also next week. If you’ve been feeling defeated, depressed, sensitive and/or lonely then you are likely already experiencing the effects of this aspect. So…don’t give up on your dreams or abandon plan A for plan B for at least two more weeks (to be on the safe side). With the Venus-Neptune square you might find yourself saying, “But plan B isn’t so bad.” But I would urge you not to make any decisions that end with the conclusion, “It wasn’t so bad,” unless you are having dental surgery or something similar. Chiron shows us our wounds and in Pisces the wounds are often around feeling that we can’t get what we want, that our dreams are impossible or impractical. But the inventors of the halogen lamp and the telephone were both Pisces. Indulging Piscean dreams can be quite fruitful and Chiron wants to help you see where you are holding yourself back from that achievement, by which thoughts or old memories.
Another uncomfortable issue that Chiron in Pisces can bring up are feelings of alienation. Again, Chiron brings these things to your attention for examination. This can cause you to fall back on the delusions of the Venus-Neptune square, a desire to cling to the comfort of the familiar even if it no longer serves you. No matter what, at some point in the story we all have to go into the castle alone. But a few friendly faces or words of encouragement can do a lot to bolster your confidence at the door…something the 2 of Wands provides.
The 2 of Wands is about recognizing your power to effect change, particularly within your own life which is an excellent place to start. This week, if you find yourself wallowing in despair consider making a list of your achievements to date, even if the list only includes practical details like having trimmed your toe nails. The other day my friend was visiting my apartment and she said, “Who built these shelves?” I paused for a second as the realization hit me. “I did!” I said proudly. They are nothing fancy, but they were built by my own two hands and they look exactly the way I imagined them. Your turn. What have you created along the way with your own two hands that you may have forgotten about? You did it then and you will undoubtedly do it again.
