WELCOME NAVIGATORS OF THE ASTRAL PLANE! This is a big week here at TAROTSCOPES because it is the first of a brand new structure which will synchronize with the planets and stars, instead of with the calendar or clock. Instead of a weekly horoscope by zodiac sign, I will pull cards on a bi-monthly basis in preparation for the Full and New Moons. In addition to this structural change I will be discontinuing my subscriptions and all posts from here on out will be made free and open to the public. This decision was made in order to provide more time and focus for my private reading practice as well as new Tarotscopes projects.
In addition to what I detail below under the card I pulled for the Full Moon, the II HIGH PRIESTESS, Juno, planet of partnership, has just moved from Leo to Virgo. Juno in Leo is adoring, loyal and dramatic. Juno in Leo wants you all to herself. Juno in Virgo, on a good day (Juno trine Jupiter), wants to see you put your best foot forward and help you achieve your goals, but on a bad day (Juno square Saturn), Juno in Virgo can be a bit of a nitpicker and harsh in her critique. These dynamics may arise in romantic partnerships, business partnerships or in any area where you have formed a marriage-like bond or commitment. In myth Juno was Zeus' wife and she put up with a lot of his philandering. In astrology, Juno may also reflect what we are willing to put up with in a partnership.
ATTENTION ALL READERS Instead of a weekly horoscope by zodiac sign, I will pull cards on a bi-monthly basis in preparation for the Full and New Moons. In addition to this structural change I will be discontinuing my subscriptions and all posts from here on out will be made free and open to the public. This decision was made in order to provide more time and focus for my private reading practice as well as new Tarotscopes projects. And as a reminder...<3

THE HIGH PRIESTESS
Okay, I know we’ve seen this card very recently, but it is time now to revisit given the current astrological weather, namely- the Full Moon in Capricorn. Two weeks ago I talked about the Hierophant, aka the High Priest and how he represents spiritual and/ or moral authority. He is sometimes considered the masculine counter part to the High Priestess. He refers perhaps to external authority, while the High Priestess asks us to listen to our own internal compass, our ways of knowing which are not often recognized or validated by society or any sort of external structure. There may be no applause or graduation ceremony for listening to or learning from your intuition, but the rewards could, in effect, be far greater.
Astrologer Anne Ortelee has said repeatedly in her podcasts that we are currently “working on the dream.” She means, of course, your dreams for the future, not the one I had last night, but this dream did seem very pertinent to the themes of this Full Moon in Capricorn and so I will share anyway. The dream began just as I jumped into a pool. Incidentally, my friend, a Capricorn, was there with me. She had convinced me to jump in the pool because “we still have some time before our flights.” My mind flashed on an airline ticket and I realized that my flight departed hours before hers, at 4:20 pm (even my dreams have a sense of humor). I was trying to get to Miami to catch a flight to Puerto Rico. My dad (a Cancer) appeared, as I got out of the pool. “I’m going to miss my flight.” We both looked at our watches and I saw that it was 3:40 pm. “Do you think I’ll make it if we leave right now?” I asked. “If we leave right now,” my dad confirmed. Another friend of mine and her daughter (both Sagittarius’) walked into the picture and my dad started talking to them and forgot the time. This is very uncharacteristic of my dad who used to say, almost on a daily basis, “Chop! Chop! Let’s go! We’re going to be late!” I looked back at my watch, it was 4pm. “We aren’t going to make it are we?” I said. “It doesn’t look like it,” my dad replied casually.
I’ve been trying to navigate a feeling, which began as an intuition that I needed to change the structure of Tarotscopes. I wanted to make more room in my life both for the readings I offer and the projects I’m interested in exploring and also for life itself. I’ve wanted to jump in the pool for quite some time, but was simultaneously afraid to step away from a structure that had shaped my life for almost three years. As the moon waxed towards full in the sign of Capricorn (exact tomorrow evening) I thought about how I might be able to change the structure (which I had created in the first place) to accommodate my needs for flexibility and, as my dream flight time suggested, the need to “chill” occasionally. I knew that to push past the feeling that it was time to move on from the form Tarotscopes had taken up to this point would be disregarding my own authority and my own way of knowing, a tool I’ve relied on in the readings I give and to navigate the world since birth.
The Full Moon will be just five fingers away from Pluto suggesting that the message this Moon is transmitting has a lot to do with change and transformation. In particular, changes (Pluto, and Mars actually) to a structure (Capricorn) in your life based on what your feelings and intuition (Cancer and the High Priestess) are recommending. In addition to opposing the Sun and loosely Mars, the Moon will also be squaring the Nodes of Fate emphasizing the need to ensure that the structure you create and the goals you set for the future are in the direction of balance, peace and love. Embrace your inner hippie, Dude, Jane, Slater, Harold or Kumar etc...you get the idea. Summer is here.
