I am so so so ready for autumn! I was on a call with a client yesterday and I was telling her that I feel most at home in the cloudy, cool, drizzly autumn weather that has finally made its way to the Pacific Northwest.
I notice within myself that it is hard to ground into my work under the heat of summer, and that the teacher in me gets really inspired and activated by the essence of the "new beginning" of September.
I am definitely in my happy place right now!
With the presence of yesterday's New Moon in Virgo and today's equinox, I felt called to dive into sharing with you a tarot reading for your sun sign. I so love combining my love for the Tarot with my curiosity and intrigue of astrology in this way.
While I have written these readings with entrepreneurs in mind, I invite you to explore what card came up for your sign even if you do not own your own business.
You may also wish to explore the card that came up for your rising sign or your moon sign as well. You'll see what card came up for you below.
Before you scroll down, I wanted to remind you that registration for Unlock the Arcana of your Business closes this Monday.
This 10-week journey is designed to guide you in an intuitive exploration of your business, inspired by the archetypes of the Tarot + mythology. In this way, you can allow your own wisdom to guide you forward into a place of expansion in preparation for the magic that you are envisioning for 2018.
Now is the time to make the shift - to dive deep into business development AND spiritual development at the same time - and see how the two go hand-in-hand.
Aries - The Star:: The Star speaks of new beginnings (perfect for equinox!) and embodies a sense of hope - especially after a moment of upheaval or uncertainty. The Star asks you to examine your work and notice what is no longer serving you - what may be old stories or services that don't honor your own inner growth and expansion. What needs to be released in this moment?
Taurus - Temperance:: Temperance asks you to explore how you can invite a sense of flow and balance into your work. Do you notice that in this moment, you are totally immersed in a place of ease or effort? See if you can balance the scales and align yourself with a place of equanimity within your work and energies.
Gemini - Four of Cups:: Fellow Gemini, the Four of Cups asks you to carve out the time to pause and reflect upon what has been coming up for you on an emotional level, and to dive into the realm of your intuitive knowing. As you explore your inherent wisdom, you may see a new opportunity make itself known to you that was not in your awareness previously.
Cancer - Page of Pentacles:: This card echoes the energy of new beginnings that is inherently present under the new moon and new season. The suit of Pentacles reminds us to ground into our work - both through the element of earth and through the element of spirit. Can you invoke a sense of wonder, curiosity, and eagerness to explore within the work that you are doing in this moment?
Leo - 5 of Swords:: The 5's within the Tarot speak of human struggle - and this card focuses specifically on how we may feel weighed down and burdened by our own limiting beliefs, anxieties, and how we may not be speaking our full truth. You may wish to work with mantra (or sing a personal power song!) to help clear the throat + mind space so that you can step into a place of grounded confidence.
Virgo - The King of Pentacles:: Dear Virgo, this card reminds you that when you approach your work from a grounded and inspired place, you can best hold an energetic container for your community and show up in aligned service for those who you work with. Examine how you are showing up as a leader and witness how your services support your clients - focus on the way that you are creating positive change with your work.
Libra - The Ten of Wands:: As someone who is always seeking balance dear Libra, this card suggests that your scales may be over burdened with overwhelm or struggle. As a sign that is naturally attracted to love and passion, which the suit of Wands also embodies, see if you can release some of the burden you are feeling by re-aligning yourself with what lights you up within your realm of work. Can you invite in a sense of play, joy, and inspiration into your work? This may help to lighten the situation.
Scorpio - Strength:: This card asks you: How can you showcase your personal strengths to others? How can you honor not only your outer (and maybe muscle-y) strengths, but also your quiet and gentle strengths as well? Allow both aspects of your unique self to shine forward. Also, witness how you can harness your skills to show up in support of others, who may need your balanced strength to support them in what they are navigating through in this moment.
Sagittarius - The Knight of Wands:: You may find yourself going full speed ahead as your passion for a project propels you forward with inspired energy on your path. The Knight of Wands is showing up in service for his community from a place of inspired action and with an essence of being eager to embark on an adventure. Allow your inner mission to serve as a compass, directing you forward towards your true north, and you will not be led astray on your quest.
Capricorn - Four of Wands:: This card speaks of entering a new portal - one of stability, celebration, and opportunity. Can you witness and honor the threshold that you are stepping through in this moment, and celebrate where you are on this journey? Honor the shifts and expansions that you have cultivated within your life and ground yourself in the experience of the joy of this moment.
Aquarius - The Wheel of Fortune:: A card that speaks of shifts and change, the Wheel of Fortune suggests that you are at a turning point within your work. Witness what you have control over and where you can take hold of the reigns, and give yourself time to adapt and adjust to any new situations that are unfolding for you. This card asks you to stay devoted and committed to your path.
Pisces - Two of Swords:: This is a call to remember and honor your own inner vision and strength. The Two of Swords asks you to go within, seek out the wisdom that you already carry within yourself - your intuitive knowing - and to use that as a source of direction and action within your work. When challenges arise for you on your path, allow your inner vision and wisdom to carry you through - and your determination and focus will slash through any obstacles that come forward.
Sending you New Moon + Equinox Blessings, dear one.
