As Summer begins, we are gifted with the longest day of the year as the Sun moves into the sensitive and receptive sign of Cancer on June 21st. Neptune went into retrograde in the sign of Pisces of the 18th of June and will remain so until the end of November. This transit asks us to take a look at how we are developing both spiritually and emotionally. How do your emotions impact your sense of spirituality? What truths are you being asked to look at, even if they may be painful? How has escapism whether it be through sex, drugs, alcohol, over-eating, social media, etc., had an effect on your life or the lives of those around you? This transit asks you to strip away illusions and step into reality. Focus on optimism and remain hopeful.

Shortly thereafter on June 26th, Mars will go retrograde in the sign of Aquarius (and Capricorn) until August 27th. This will have us thinking about how we deal with injustices, how we can shake things up to take a new and innovative approach, and determining our role in the community at large. How do we think about our independence? Are we really free? Where are we feeling backed into a corner? Jupiter which has been retrograde in Scorpio since March will finally go direct on July 10th! Yay! This will be the breath of fresh air you've been waiting for.

As we enter eclipse season, we will have a partial solar eclipse on July 12th in the sign of Cancer which will be followed up by a total lunar eclipse in the sign of Aquarius on July 27th, and another partial solar eclipse in the sign of Leo on August 11th - whew! If you are looking for guidance on how to best navigate these eclipses, my Lunar & Solar Eclipse Reading will be available for purchase in the shop from July 9th to August 15th. The second full Mercury Retrograde of 2018 will be in the sign of Leo and last from July 26th to August 19th. Prepare yourself for Mercury Rx with my Making the Most of Mercury Retrograde, Don't Fear the Retrograde article. 

Saturn, a planet of structure and responsibility which has been retrograde in the sign of Capricorn since April, will finally go direct on September 6th. Saturn in Capricorn is about hard lessons, practicality, and hard work. It asks us to think about how responsible and disciplined we are when it comes to our work and money. What needs to be restructured, is old, or outdated? This can possibly be of aid to you if you've been struggling in your work or financial sector a bit. 

For your Summer 2018 Tarotscopes, I will be using the the Temptress Tarot and the My Quality Time Self-Care Activity Deck. Please be sure to also read the Tarotscopes for your Moon and Rising Signs as well for a more complete picture as to the energy surrounding you personally this summer from June 21st to September 21st 2018. In addition, you can also stay tuned to the Maven Unmasked YouTube Channel for more great info!

For my readers in the Southern Hemisphere, these cards will still apply to you, even though you are entering the Winter Solstice. You can also check out my Winter 2017 Tarotscopes.

OVERALL ENERGY | THE DEVIL

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: TAKE YOURSELF ON A DATE

Be mindful of your sense of safety and security as well as any co-dependency issues this summer loves! Are you in any relationships that feel controlling or restrictive? Have you been overindulging in risky behavior or unhealthy habits? In what areas of your life are you afraid to voice your thoughts and opinions? Now is the time to break free! Don't let fear or good sex keep you stuck in a toxic situation or relationship. There are other fish in the sea. 

Take yourself on a date. Show yourself some appreciation! Pick a venue, date, time, and place. Mark it on your calendar. Then GO. You won't pressure yourself for something you're not ready for, you don't have to get all dressed up (unless you want to of course), and you know that you can count on yourself at the end of the night. Free yourself from the need for someone else to do it for you, when you can do bad all by yourself. 

Love Message: If you're single and on the dating scene this summer, do your research so you won't wind up on a date with the devil in disguise. Listen to your gut instincts and be sure to let a trusted friend know where you'll be and who you'll be with. You don't want to be catfished or with having drinks with someone who doesn't have your best interests at heart.

ARIES | FOUR OF CUPS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: LEARN SOMETHING NEW

You may find yourself feeling bored, unsatisfied, or apathetic this summer Aries. You are yearning for more and tired of what exists in front of you. Did you see that flash out of the corner of your light? New light is breaking through to illuminate a new option that has been there for quite some time and yet, you have been too busy focused on the lack to even notice it, let alone appreciate it. If you've been doing the same thing over and over and you're still getting the same results, beating your head against a wall, maybe now is the time to do things differently. Step out of your comfort zone this summer and focus on trying to learn something new to bring you a deeper sense of fulfillment and the joy you long for.

TAURUS | THE TOWER

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: PLAY MORE, STRESS LESS

You've got a LOT on your mind this summer Taurus! It's weighing heavily on you and may be causing you to stress out a bit. Are you making something bigger than it is? The more you worry, the deeper the roots the travel into your subconscious. Don't let it grow any further! Big changes are in store for you! What seeds of positivity and loving calm can you plant in your mind? Water those thoughts. Let go of the need for control. Let loose and have a little fun! Play is a great way to destress. What does play mean to you? It could be as simple as singing a silly song, building a sandcastle at the beach, going to an amusement park, or playing with children.

GEMINI | SEVEN OF PENTACLES

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: RECONNECT QUIETLY WITH NATURE (SANS PHONE)

You've been patiently waiting for the growth to happen, for the rose to blossom, for the gates to open and this summer will be no different Gemini. You've let it all hang out and now what? Know that not all flowers bloom in summer. All rose buds don't unfold at the same time. They all are on their own unqiue and individual time frame that has been gifted to them by the divine. This is a lesson in patience for you - BIG TIME. Take advantage of this moment of pause. Connect more with yourself and with nature. Take a break from social media and hanging with friends, and go to a local park or nature reserve to reflect quietly with self. 

 

 

 

Cancer Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

CANCER | EIGHT OF PENTACLES

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: TREAT YO' SELF

This summer may have you burning the midnight oil Cancer! This could manifest itself in a variety of ways from taking a new class, starting a new career or business, or even hitting the gym and making healthier lifestyle choices. Your momentum is off the charts! Just make sure to take time and treat yourself regularly! If you keep plugging away, depriving yourself, and don't have a cheat day every now and then, you may become resentful or just give up all together! What is a fresh, sweet, colorful, and healthy way that you can treat yourself for all of your hard work, dedication, and effort?

 

 

 

Leo Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

LEO | FOUR OF PENTACLES

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: GET A NEW HAIRDO

You may find yourself saving for something special this summer Leo, just don't be greedy or miserly. Take stock of your relationship with money. How is your spending and your saving ratio looking? Do you need to adjust your budget to better suit your lifestyle? Do you feel that you don't have or aren't making enough? Are there material items that you're lusting for and that money could be better spent elsewhere? I feel this month is really about personal willpower and solar plexus chakra work for you. Respect your money and your money will respect you. To help you feel like a million bucks even if your bank account says otherwise, take a trip to the salon, dye your hair, or get a new do!

 

 

 

Virgo Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

VIRGO | KNIGHT OF SWORDS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: SWITCH UP YOUR MAKE-UP ROUTINE

Expression and attitude. Watch your words this summer Virgo for they have the power to cut like a knife. Be mindful of how you are communicating with others - are you truly hearing their words and taking them in or are you already on to your next point before they can get a word in edgewise? Passion is great! Just try not to dominate the conversation and be respectful of others who wish to voice their opinions as well. How can you express yourself through your make-up this summer? Sharpen up your brows and eyeliner instead of your tongue. Switch up your make-up routine or try a new color or product. There are so many ways to show other aspects of your personality through your make-up. 

 

 

 

Libra Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

LIBRA | THE STAR

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: LIBRARY BINGE

This summer will really be a show of hope, faith, and belief for you Libra. How strong are these sacred three in your life, in your world? Do you still dare to dream and wish upon a star? Do you look up at the night sky full of curiosity and wonder? Paint the night sky with your prayers this summer Libra. What do you truly believe? Not just in terms of spirituality but in terms of life, the galaxy, the infinite stars in the sky? Now is a great time to explore that on a deeper level. Hit the library! Take a day where you can immerse yourself in the smell of old books as you leisurely stroll the aisles and scan the titles on the shelves. Whatever sparks your fancy, pull it out and just start reading - you may surprise yourself. 

 

 

 

Scorpio Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

SCORPIO | TWO OF SWORDS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME

Looks like you've got some ideas caught in the pipeline this summer Scorpio. Where do you go next? What do you wish to do? Due to your uncertainty, you may find yourself frozen in place, too sacred to make a move for fear of making the wrong one. There are so many unknowns and you aren't sure if you have the knowledge to press on any further. Take time away from wrestling these ideas and take off the blindfold. What are you not seeing clearly? You don't have all the information yet and that's totally okay. Spend some time this summer volunteering to help take you out of your head and your immediate environment. This can help to clear your mind and give you fresh perspective as well as a deeper sense of gratitude.  

 

 

 

Sagittarius Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

SAGITTARIUS | ACE OF SWORDS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: SHARE YOUR GIFT

A new idea or fresh way of thinking is available to you this summer Sagittarius. Clarity and expression of truth on a whole new level are on your mind. Know that this is again, a "new" idea or belief. It is not fully developed yet, so be open to change and constructive guidance. Now is also a good time for you to focus on cutting cords, beliefs, and old ways of thinking that no longer serve you out of your life. Taking a stand for what you believe is right and staking your claim will be paramount for you. This will help to feel more comfortable sharing your gifts and may even encourage others to share theirs. What a beautiful gift that is!

 

 

 

Capricorn Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

CAPRICORN | PAGE OF CUPS

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: CLEANSE & DETOXIFY

You are soaking up energy like a sponge this summer Capricorn! Your heart is open and you are feeling all the feels. Can you say empath? There may even be a few childhood issues resurfacing to be healed. Take care of your heart chakra and allow yourself to be purged of any toxic or impure energy. Be sure to cleanse and detoxify your energy regularly this season. Activated charcoal anyone? There are tons of ways to clear your energy from burning sage and palo santo to salt baths, selenite wands, and egg cleansing (limpia). Bring a fresh face to the game! You can even do a detoxifying face mask or cut out sugar and caffeine. 

 

 

 

Aquarius Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

AQUARIUS | THE EMPEROR

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: PAY IT FORWARD

You've learned discipline, respect, and self-restraint, now is the time to step up and show it this summer Aquarius! Step up and be a leader. Lead by example through your structure, practicality, and good works. Let your knowledge and wisdom shine through in your actions, words, and how you carry yourself. Who in your life has been a mentor to you? What tools did they use? This summer, begin to pay it forward and take them out for coffee. Give guidance to those who were once in your shoes - lost or looking for a teacher. You have the intuitive foresight that they may lack for your skills have been refined through time and challenge. Pay it forward by using this to help them grow. 

 

 

 

Pisces Pic - Summer 2018 Tarotscopes .jpg

PISCES | ACE OF PENTACLES

SELF-CARE ACTIVITY: SEE A MOVIE

This summer is about all planting seeds for new career and financial opportunities for you Pisces! Abundance and good health are also available to you. You may even start a new physical care routine whether that be dieting, exercising, or just taking better care of your physical health overall. The ball is in your court. Plant the seed and watch it grow, just remember that you must nurture it. Don't give up if it doesn't sprout overnight. Get your self-care on this summer by laying back and curling up to a new movie or a flick that's a tried and true fave! Romance? Action? Comedy? Netflix or Hulu? Think of what new money making ideas can be generated through watching film or just relaxing your mind enough to think outside of the box!

Spring 2018 Tarotscopes - Tarot Readings for Each of the Zodiac Signs

The Vernal Equinox is finally upon us and so are your Spring 2018 Tarotscopes! Shake free the sleepy cold and hibernation of Winter with a tarot reading for each of the zodiac signs. 

flower-731300_1280.jpg

As Spring begins, we herald the astrological new year as the Sun returns to the sign of Aries. Jupiter will be retrograde in Scorpio for all of Spring. The first full Mercury Retrograde of 2018 will be in the sign of Aries and last from March 22nd to April 15th. Prepare yourself for Mercury Rx with my Making the Most of Mercury Retrograde, Don't Fear the Retrograde article. 

Venus will enter the sign of Taurus on March 31st. Venus is happy and feels at home here. It is the perfect time to enjoy a sense of luxury - beautify yourself, redecorate your home, eat good food, or be swept up in a new romance. 

We will also have a Blue Full Moon in Libra on March 31st - balancing and harmonizing relationships anyone? All of this just in the first month! I feel like this Spring, Spirit wants a spectacle of deep rooted change. We are coming into the season reborn, awakened, and ready to ascend - even if that means some shifts still need to take place. 

For your Spring 2018 Tarotscopes, I will be using the Naked Heart Tarot by Jillian C. Wilde. Please be sure to also read the Tarotscopes for your Moon and Rising Signs as well for a more complete picture as to the energy surrounding you personally this Spring from March 20th to June 21st 2018. In addition, you can also watch your March 2018 Lightworker Evolution Reading for more great info!

For my readers in the Southern Hemisphere, these cards will still apply to you, even though you are entering the Autumnal Equinox. You can also check out my Fall 2017 Tarotscopes.

Overall Energy | The Moon

Energy - The Moon - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Fantasy defies reality. Keep in mind that not all is as it seems. Be wary of illusions, traps, and tricks of the mind this Spring. Everything is not black and white. Can you learn to interpret and navigate the grey in between? If you find yourself reacting negatively or feeling upset or angry, is the initial emotion the truth of the matter? Are you really angry or when you peel back the layers, do you find sadness, apprehension, fear, or trepidation lying there in wait? This Spring will be very much about cutting through illusions and finding truth. Your fears are not bigger than you. Don't allow your nightmares to run your waking life, lead you astray, or keep you paralyzed. Where can you find a pinprick of light despite the darkness? Have you tried searching in your soul? 

 

 

Aries - 9 of Cups - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Aries | Nine of Cups

Wish upon a star. Seriously, Aries! Manifest, hope, dream! Just be clear about what you want as Mercury is retrograde in your sign for the first few weeks of Spring. The energy is on your side to make your dreams a reality season. You believe your willpower will push you through, and it has many times in your life. This time, divine intervention wants you to open your heart to the help it wants to provide to push your wishes along. Dream big Aries! Put in the effort and the Universe will provide. 

 

 

 

Taurus - Sky Father - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Taurus | Sky Father

Your strong and determined actions and mindset as of late are saying to the Universe that you are sturdy, have built strong foundations, and are self-disciplined enough to receive the blessings you've asked for from Spirit. Where can you lead? How can you be more forthcoming or courageous? Who or what are you called to help build and protect? This Spring, your calling is written in the stars. What are you calling to you? There may also be some healing that needs to take place between yourself and a father figure in your life. 

 

 

Gemini - 5 of Cups - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Gemini | Five of Cups

In the words of Keith Urban, "Blue Ain't your Color" Gemini! If you find that your heart is heavy this Spring, focus on healing. Find your smile. Do not stay trapped in sadness and grief. Realize that this too shall pass. Cry if you need to, pick up the pieces, and keep it moving. Don't allow your tears to suffocate you and your expression my beauty. Use this time for healing and release. Be gentle with yourself. The pain must first be acknowledged before true deep healing can begin. 

 

 

Cancer - The Star - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Cancer | The Star

In what direction are you heading, Cancer? What is your true North? Ask not only your mind, but your body and spirit as well. Find inspiration this Spring to fuel your dreams, goals, and ambitions. Trust in Spirit. Have faith that you are exactly where you are supposed to be at this point of your journey. Talk to the night sky and the stars! Tell them your secrets and desires. They are listening. 

 

 

 

Leo - 10 of Swords - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Leo | Ten of Swords

The turbulence that has been peskily sneaking and scurrying through your mind will come to an end this Spring. No more rooting around with those who do not have your best interests at heart! Someone or something may be exposed for what they truly are. Keep your eyes open. When this happens, be grateful that you are able to see the truth - even if it hurts. Use this as an opportunity to release dead weight and recover. 

 

 

Virgo - 6 of Wands - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Virgo | Six of Wands

Victorious energy is available to you in abundance this Spring. You've really stepped up your game! Keep moving forward with your goals and ambitions. They are strong and solid. Celebrate your accomplishments. You have made it through to the other side - not unscathed, but glorious in your determination and stamina. It is that energy that pushes you through. Stay humble and remember to give thanks to those who helped you along the way!

 

 

Libra - The Hierophant - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Libra | The Hierophant

What have you learned from the personal growth you've made in the last few months? What new wisdom have you gleaned from these lessons? These tidbits of wisdom are fuel for you in assimilating higher knowledge, spiritual wisdom, and truth. How can you continue your spiritual education? Look for mentors, commune with your guides, read, watch videos. Soak up all the knowledge that you can, just remember - take what resonates and leave the rest. Your truth does not have to be the same as someone else's.  

 

 

Scorpio - 10 of Cups - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Scorpio | Ten of Cups

After a rough few months, Spring looks to be colorfully juicy! Yay! Things have finally settled for you in a harmonious fashion. Go get your happy - it is grounded in the earth! There is much joy to be had this season for you Scorp. It wants you as much as you desire it. If you're having trouble embracing this mentality, get out your favorite crystals and manifest it! Family and relationships should be going well. There is a sense of positive and loving completion. A maturity. Take a deep breath and enjoy. 

 

 

Sagittarius - The Devil - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Sagittarius | The Devil

Free yourself from bondage! Don't let spring fever or your impulsive desires enslave you. Stay strong in your resolve. Be mindful of mind traps and addictions this Spring. What are you obsessing over or is oppressing you? Are you over-doing it? What lies do you tell yourself to excuse your behavior? Are the urges of your physical body stronger than the quiet resolve of your Spirit? You may be called to confront your shadow self. Work to see through illusion and to release your conditioning. 

 

 

Capricorn - Child of Wands - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Capricorn | Child of Wands

Be curious, wild, adventurous, and free! Honor your sense of ingenuity. What would you like to create this Spring? Where is your wide eyed wonder? Take charge and go for it! Be mindful of impulsiveness and or being naive of what may be required of you. Continue to be open to guidance from mentors, elders, and Spirit. With the Sun at your back, you are facing your future with wide eyes and a brave heart. 

 

 

Aquarius - 6 of Cups - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Aquarius | Six of Cups

Gather up your tears, put them in your pocket, and embrace a sense of play and magic this Spring. Connect to your inner child this season. Take a trip down memory lane and invite loving or funny memories into your awareness. Work with the energy of childlike joy. Toys"R"Us may be going out of business, but your childhood doesn't have to. Spend time around children, go to a theme park, or watch movies/tv shows that bring a sense of nostalgia from days gone by. 

 

 

Pisces - Justice - Naked Heart Tarot.jpg

Pisces | Justice

Fairness, equality, and divine balance are at the forefront for you this Spring - especially when it comes to relationships. The sign of Libra is associated with the Justice card in tarot. With the Full Moon in Libra on March 31st, you may have some powerful manifesting ability at your disposal. Before manifesting, think about the light and dark, the positive and negative. Weigh the pros and cons before making a decision or getting your creatively potent and dreamy magic on! Remember that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Aries Winter 2017.JPG

 

Aries 

Be mindful of how easily you allow your feathers to be ruffled Aries. This Winter may be challenging for you in terms of conflict with others. Be aware of personal boundaries. You may even encounter some obstacles in your current endeavors. Try to take it easy and don't sweat the small stuff. Frustration just binds the energy even tighter.

 

 

Tarurs Winter 2017.JPG

 

Taurus

Things are beginning to shift for you this season Taurus. New ways of income may enter as old means fall away. Be open to change as transformation is happening. As one door closes, another one opens. Try not to be intimidated by change. Instead, learn to embrace it so that the transition is easier.

 

 

 

Gemini Winter 2017.JPG

 

Gemini

Long term partnerships, whether they be business, familial, or romantic, are at the forefront for you this Winter. Cherish these relationships. Is there any clean up required? Does the air need to be cleared with a situation or partner. How can you work together to create a stronger union?

 

 

 

Cancer Winter 2017.JPG

 

Cancer

You may feel like you are trying to reinvent the wheel this season. How can you make your skills even better? You are being encouraged to rethink the way you are going about things. Perhaps there is a point you've been trying to get across that hasn't been communicated clearly enough. Go back to the drawing board, but take your skill set with you.

 

 

Leo Winter 2017.JPG

 

Leo

You know, but are you listening? Are you doing? Are you working with the wisdom you've been given or do your actions say otherwise? What do you know now that you didn't before and how can this knowledge aid you this Winter? Open your crown chakra and let the knowledge flow. Think outside of the box!

 

 

 

Virgo Winter 2017.JPG

 

Virgo

Your spider senses should be tingling this Winter. You are extremely open and sensitive to energy at this time. What messages are you picking up from the world around you? Work with your spirituality, intuition, and develop your psychic ability this season.

 

 

 

Libra Winter 2017.JPG

 

Libra

Are you expressing your thoughts? How are you communicating with others this season and are you doing so effectively? Thoughts also carry vibration. What are you communicating to yourself and the Universe not only with your words, but also with your mind? Think kind and loving thoughts. 

 

 

 

Scorpio Winter 2017.JPG

 

Scorpio

Stability is at the foreground for you Scorpio which is great news if you have been feeling off kilter as of late. This Winter will finally give you solid ground to stand on so you can continue to plod diligently towards your goals. The structure is there so raise your sky scraper! Now is the time to build on that foundation and make it even stronger. 

 

 

Sagittarius Winter 2017.JPG

 

Sagittarius

Who or what are you using for comfort, love, or for your own gain? Having resources is great - just be aware of how you use them. As you take, are you also planting seeds? Use the tools that you have been given, but not to their disrespect or detriment. 

 

 

 

Capricorn Winter 2017.JPG

 

Capricorn

You are shedding old skin this Winter. Stepping into a more full version of who you are. Stepping more completely into your authenticity. First however, there is work required. Where in your life and awareness begs for change and transformation? How can you not only embrace, but help to facilitate this process?

 

 

Aquarius Winter 2017.JPG

 

Aquarius

Balance is key this Winter from balance in your relationships and work to time management and family. How can you work to balance all of the things on your plate instead of just juggling them, all the while waiting for the ball to drop? Be fair to you and your time. Delegate responsibilities to partners, family members, or friends if needed. 

 

 

Pisces Winter 2017.JPG

 

Pisces

An "age" or phase in your life is coming to an end. You may be thinking quite a bit about the passage of time this Winter. How things have changed, how you've aged, what you've done, and what you still have left to do. Remember, you are only as old as you allow yourself to feel. Maturing is a beautiful thing, yet you can still be young at heart.

Watch yours to get a snapshot of the energy surrounding you this autumn. Let me know what you guys think of this or if you prefer the blog post style. Be sure to watch the 'Scopes for your Moon & Ascendant signs as well as your Sun sign!

Here are your Summer 2017 Tarotscopes for June 21st to September 21st 2017! Read about the vibes that will be surrounding you all summer long! Be sure to read the Tarotscope for your Sun, Moon, & Rising signs to get a more complete picture as to what you can expect this season whether you are in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere. As a special bonus this season, I have included an extra oracle card to determine what sector of your life these energies may affect you in.

The overall theme for everyone this summer is...

Maven Unmasked Summer 2017 Tarotscopes Pic - Theme

 10 of Water - Corona Borealis | Mars 

The energy of Mars will be charging us up with vitality, drive, action, and maybe even some aggression this season. This is the fuel that will propel us forward into a season of wins, triumphs after sacrifices, and fresh starts!

 

Aries

9 of Earth - Pavo | Sun

Stay vigilant and keep watch as you forge a new path for yourself. Carve out the sunshine this summer Aries - a rebirth awaits! Strike while the iron is hot. Get ready and be prepared to make a move at a moments notice! Your watchful eye will help you to know when the timing is right. Your path will unfold as it is illuminated from within. It is carefully being created and lined with gold. Visualize it! Pay attention to the details and the Divine guidance you are receiving. 

 

Taurus

7 of Earth - Crater + Corvus | Comet

You may be procrastinating to some effect this summer Taurus. Don't let it turn into stagnation! Have you put yourself in a trap of your own devising? Stop making excuses and follow through on your plans. Stop waiting for a sign. Follow your heart. Don't start tomorrow - start today! Seize the opportunity. Why the delay? Sometimes 'tis better to move forward on your own, than to have the Universe push you into a situation where you have no choice BUT to move. 

 

Gemini

6 of Earth - Dorado | Saturn

Be mindful where you gamble this season Gemini as times are a changing. Are you putting all of your eggs in once basket? Be mindful that you are not deferring responsibilities to someone else this summer. Delegating is one thing however, are the hands you are trusting with your duties coming from the highest integrity? Keep an eye on your assets and make adjustments when needed, especially in matters where more discipline and foresight is required. 

 

Cancer

The Chariot - Libra | Neptune

Use your intuition and foresight this summer to bring more balance and harmony into your world this summer Cancer. There may even be new insights for you regarding this in your dreams. This will help you to begin the huge move forward you've been waiting on! Acknowledge and be aware of the duality in all things. The light and dark aspects of different situations may warrant more development of your intuitive insights this season. Try to have an open mind and a willingness to look at all sides of the equation. Where does your intuition tell you that something is out of alignment? 

 

Maven Unmasked Summer 2017 Tarotscope Pic - Leo.JPG

Leo

The Hanged Man - Vela | Supernova

Have faith and patience this season Leo. There may be some shocking surprise in store for you this summer. Be flexible and go where the wind takes you - even if it may feel like you've been blown off course for a while. Keep your emotions in check. Emotional outbursts may only make the situation more explosive than it needs to be. Learn to ride the stormy seas and know that the skies will part and the sun will shine once again. Listen to the guidance and wisdom of your Higher Self as well as the cosmos. 

 

Virgo

Justice - Aquarius | Moon

Some secrets may be bubbling up to be revealed for you this summer Virgo. Light will definitely be shed on the situations that have had you questioning lately. Justice is on it's way to you. Is there a secret you have been harboring that is keeping you feeling bound? Perhaps one that was once a truth for you that is no longer so? Break the cycles and patterns this season! You will have more energy around you to help you begin this work. Might I even suggest some moon phase shadow work? 

 

Libra

5 of Air - Carina | Worm Hole

This may be a bit of a stressful time for you this summer Libra. Stuck between a rock and a hard place is only the tip of the iceberg. You may be putting on a mask everyday just to try to make it through and save face however, there is so much more underneath the surface. Make sure to get plenty of rest and alone time to avoid burnout and additional undue stress. Guided meditations and affirmations are your friend this season Libra! There may also be a benefactor or some synchronistic encounter with someone who can help you to find the missing piece of this equation and recover some solace. 

 

Scorpio

King of Water - Camelopardalis | Uranus

Get your emotions in check and see the bigger picture this season Scorpio! Take a bird's eye view. See the forest for the trees. This could be in regards to a passionate or sexual relationship this summer. Are you truly listening to all of the information that is available to you or are you only hearing one side of the equation - the side you want to hear? Take off the rose colored glasses! If you want to indulge in your passions or explore your sexuality, wonderful, that's fine and dandy - just remember to take a step back from the emotions and fantasy to view the whole situation for what it is. 

 

Sagittarius

Wheel of Fortune - Pegasus | Galaxy

You are becoming an even greater leader in your community this summer Sagittarius. Luck is on your side! You may be acknowledged for your work, inclusiveness, and diversity. You could also be volunteering a lot of your time and effort to bettering and engaging with the community this season as well. This summer is about you truly stepping into your own Sagittarius, especially as the last Full Moon of Spring 2016 was in your sign. Gear up! That power will push you forward and help you to expand all summer long!

 

Capricorn

Strength - Puppis | Venus

You may have some strain in your love life and relationships this summer Capricorn. Although this energy may be surrounding you, be aware of your strength. It may not be the most pleasant experience however, you have gained valuable tools to keep you from crumbling and completely falling apart. Stand in your power. Solar Plexus and Heart Chakra work may be beneficial to you this season. Where can you still find love and beauty? There may even be someone new waiting to enter the picture to help you through this situation. I also feel like this may be a call for you to work ever more closely with the Divine Feminine within you and the Universal Love of the cosmos. 

 

Aquarius

9 of Fire - Are | Nebula

Ceremony, ritual, and study are the name of the game for you this season Aquarius. Put on your witchy hats, lab coats, and wacky scientific curiosity! Breaking down your processes, keeping detailed notes, exploring new theories and testing them will be an essential part of your summer. It is truly about discovering what it is exactly you believe and why. Spend your time reading and experimenting and find what works for you. You may even be surprised to discover that what once used to work for you and resonated so deeply no longer does. What is it NOW that makes you tick? 

 

Pisces

Queen of Air - Aquila | Mercury 

You may meet a powerful ally in regards to your business this season Pisces! A new benefactor, investor, or someone with more stake in the game could be coming to your aid and amping up your reach as well as your potential. There may even be a business deal or an opportunity to work together on the table! This could be in regards to the areas of networking, interviews, public speaking, social media, the internet, and sales. Keep your wits about you. Do your research and don't be afraid to ask questions and take the help if you feel it is for your best and highest good. 

 

Here's to a Summer full of Sunshine!

Hi love bunnies! Happy Spring! March 20th is the date of the Spring Equinox this year.

This season for our Tarotscopes, I will be using the Gaian Tarot by Joanna Powell Colbert (Schiffer, 2016) as it totally resonates with the colorful vibration of all the seasons, but especially Spring. It's as lush as the trees and flowers coming back into bloom!

Spring 2017 Tarotscopes

 

Aries | Guardian of Earth

Tend to the garden of your life this Spring, Aries. Increase your sense of abundance and prosperity. Encourage a careful and gentle nature in yourself and endeavors. Pay attention to detail and know when and where to give a little extra. This Spring may turn out to be very beneficial for you in terms of finances and harvesting your long overdue rewards. You've been patient, and now it is time to reap the benefits of your hard work. 

 

Taurus | Awakening

This Spring sparks an Awakening for you Taurus! A time of reflecting on the lessons others bring into your life and the gift of awareness this brings. A time of realizing the similarities and embracing the differences between you and others. Focus on increasing your sense of unity and how we are all connected to something greater this season. Also, spending more time raising your vibration and deepening your spiritual practice may be extremely beneficial for you this Spring as well.

 

Gemini | Ace of Air 

New ideas and a fresh burst of clarity are the name of the game for you this season Gemini. Discovering and learning how to fly in your new areas of interest or study. Yes, a long journey may be ahead of you in order for you to master and shape these ideas into something worthwhile, but don't be discouraged! The longest journey begins with a single step. Look for new inspiration this Spring!

 

 

 

Cancer | Gaia, The World

Enlight7.jpg

Sweet and nurturing Cancer, Mother Earth comes up to great you this Spring. Spend as much time outdoors and exploring the natural world around you this season as possible. Go for a hike, a walk along the beach, or take a dip in the ocean! Connect to the creatures of the planet - both big and small, human, plant, and animal. You may even feel called to do some volunteer work, protect and nurture the planet, or learn more about the environment. Stay grounded. Keep focused and give thanks to Gaia for all her many blessings.

 

Leo | The Wheel

The Wheel of the Year is turning Leo, and you may definitely feel it this Spring. A renewed sense of purpose is around the corner. You may have a strong urge for finding your destiny or soul purpose. Honor the cycle of life - the ups and downs, wins and losses, times of rest and times of inspired action. This Spring may also be very karmic for you in terms of relationships. If you've been struggling as of late, some good luck may be coming your way!

 

 

 

Virgo | Five of Air

You're feeling very expressive this season Virgo. Have you been feeling unheard as of late? Like everyone is busy yapping away and you can't get a word in edge wise? Spend time working with and clearing your Throat Chakra this Spring. How can you best communicate your need for self-expression, speaking your truth, and finding the sense of freedom and liberation you've been looking for? Be careful not to be argumentative in your search. Increase your sensitivity to others and their needs while you continue to find your voice. Remember - words can cut, heal, or liberate.

 

Libra | Elder of Water

You may experience a more mature, wise, and reserved energy this Spring, Libra. A sense of peace, clarity, and wonder. Take some time, sit back, and just observe. Be still. People watch. Bird watch. Watch the sunrise and set. Observe everything and really tap in emotionally. What feelings does your observing inspire in you? Do any new ideas come your way? What lessons are you reminded of by watching the interaction of others? Spring may be a time of remembrance for you as well. What wisdom can you bring forth from observing and remembering?

 

Scorpio | Two of Water

Deeply emotional Scorpio, it looks like things get even deeper for you this Spring. Communion with others will come to the forefront for you this season. Unconditional love. Mutual understanding. Togetherness and friendship will be extremely important. Strengthen your relationship with friends whether that be through supporting them more or allowing them to support you. Learn to trust. How can you be a better friend? How can you show more unconditional love?

 

 

Sagittarius | Ten of Fire

There may be a culling of sorts happening for you this season Sagittarius. A death and renewal process. Purification. Something old must fall away so something new can be planted in the now fertile soil you've created for its growth and development. What has been blocking out the Sun in your life as of late? How can you restructure this? The answer may be unclear to you at this time, just know that the smoke clouding your view will eventually dissipate. 

 

Capricorn | Ten of Earth

Spring for you Capricorn will be about increasing your gains and sense of material happiness. It is about recognizing the journey it has taken to amass the current blessings in your life. Choose to move forward - no matter what circumstances currently look like. However, do not drain your resources. As you increase your gains, so too must you also leave something behind for those who come after you. Focus on being unselfish and increasing your sense of appreciation and gratitude this season. 

 

Aquarius | Ten of Air

Alignment. Getting your ducks in a row. Finding the formation that will cut through resistance and get you to your destination in the most efficient and timely fashion as possible. This is what you're all about this Spring, Aquarius! It is also about realizing that sometimes you need others to help you get there faster or more "safely". This is also a reminder to fly above any bs you may encounter this Spring. Try not to be in your head too much. Avoid replaying any unfortunate circumstances or disagreements with others over and over again in your head. This will not help you to fly forward - in fact, it will only cause you to lag behind.

 

Pisces | The Teacher

Wisdom, sharing guidance, and teaching others will be very important for you this Spring.  Tap into your naturally intuitive nature this season Pisces, and see where your gifts, talents, and abilities are needed. Go there. Teach. And in your teaching so too will you learn. There may even be a new mentor coming your way! This person could either be you or someone you meet in an area of interest or study. Learn all you can. Observe and absorb. A new perspective is a great learning tool as well - a dandelion can either be a weed or a wish. The lesson is all in how you look at it. 

 

Have a beautiful spring lovelies! xo ariel
