Here they are - your Winter Tarotscopes and the final tarotscopes of 2016! Curl up by the fire with your latte or hot cocoa and see what energy your zodiac sign will be working with from this December to March of 2017!

______

What is a Tarotscope? A Tarotscope is like a horoscope for your zodiac sign, only it uses tarot cards. Make sure to read the Tarotscope for your Moon and Rising Signs in addition to your Sun sign to get a more complete picture of the energy you may be working with this season and as we head into the new year! For the Tarotscopes this Winter, I will be using The Wild Unknown Tarot by Kim Krans (first edition). What’s the vibe surrounding your sign this Winter?

If you’d like to get a Wonderful reading with me this Winter, please visit the Maven Unmasked Etsy Shop

Happy Holidays,

Aries | 6 of Cups

This season will be all about reconnecting with your inner child and learning from your childhood. Honor what once was. Your sense of nostalgia may be heightened this Winter. Do you see how different events and experiences in your life have all been connected thus nurturing you into the person you are today - for better or for worse. Is there any childhood healing that needs to take place? Look back at your younger years. See how you have grown and matured. What is different and what has stayed the same?

Taurus | 2 of Wands

The longer you wait to make a decision, the less choice you have Taurus. This Winter will be spent in contemplation and looking for new options to explore. Do both options bring you to the same end point or do their paths cross for a moment and then keep on going? Evaluate your motivations. Balance will be an important factor this season as well. How will your choices impact the sense of balance in all areas of your life?

Gemini | Mother of Cups

Spend your Winter reaching out to others, healing, and sharing the love! This season is all about being the best nurturer you can be - to yourself and others too. You may be feeling a bit lovey-dovey, extra feminine, and all squishy on the inside which may make you a bit uncomfortable Gemini, but it is totally okay! Share all of that extra love and joy you feel within you to others that could use some.

cancer-winter-2016.jpg

Cancer | The Emperor

Discipline, discipline, discipline is the name of the game for you this Winter, Cancer. Bring in the reigns - it's time to tighten up ship! This is a period of taking care of business to build a strong foundation for yourself, which I feel will come in handy as we roll into 2017. Create a to-do list and crack down on some of those responsibilities. This will be an important period of development and independence for you.

leo-winter-2016.jpg

Leo | Daughter of Swords

This Winter will really be about expanding on new ideas, Leo! Get clear on your goals - don't be afraid if you have to put some of them on the back burner for now. This season will be spent learning what works for you. Communicating in new ways and learning new things. Have you been thinking of taking up a new course of study or enrolling in a new class? Now may be the prime time for you to do so!

virgo-winter-2016.jpg

Virgo | Death

Transformation, change, and rebirth will be a HUGE theme for you this Winter, Virgo! Embrace it. Shed your old skin. Let go of old beliefs. Release that which no longer serves you. You may find yourself changing jobs, finding friends who resonate with you on a soul level (and leaving behind those who do not), or perhaps even leaving a toxic relationship. Know that this period, while not easy, will definitely be beneficial in the growth and development of who you are as a soul! This is a powerful time for you.

libra-winter-2016.jpg

Libra | 5 of Cups

Try not to wallow in grief, despair, or loss this season. Winter will ask you to bring out your inner strength to help you heal from your grief. This is the time to focus on what you have - not what you're lacking. Do not hang your head in shame! Try to find ways to renew your confidence. You can bring a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Only YOU can renew your sense of joy and passion for life! How do you tap into that energy?  *Tip - Take extra salt baths this month to help keep your energy clear and fresh as you go through this trying time.

scorpio-winter-2016.jpg

Scorpio | Son of Swords

Winter will bring to you increased communication. Be mindful to think before you speak - especially in the first few weeks of Winter while Mercury is going retrograde (December 19th 2016 - January 8th 2017). Pay attention to how you communicate with others. What do you say and what do you wish you would say? There will be lots of ideas for you to share with the world. Deepen your knowledge of an existing subject of interest. This season will be a time of enhanced focus for you analytically and intellectually.

sagittarius-winter-2016.jpg

Sagittarius | 8 of Pentacles

Work, work, work is the name of the game for you this Winter, driven Sagittarius. Build and stack your resources. Put in as much work and effort as possible. Now is the time to really hunker down and put your nose to the grindstone with any goals you have. This is an extremely productive period for you where you can get a lot accomplished. This also feels like a great time of building your sense of abundance and prosperity by working towards your aspirations.

capricorn-winter-2016.jpg

Capricorn | 5 of Pentacles

Work on clearing up poverty mindset this Winter, Capricorn. Know that you're not alone and that you truly have all you need to survive. Work on taking better care of your physical body this season. Drink more water. Eat healthier foods. Make sure you spend enough time out in the sun - even if it's a bit chilly outside. Gather with those who love and support you. Don't isolate yourself this Winter. Rejoice in the sunshine with your friends and be grateful for the many blessings in your life, even if it is hard to see them right now.

aquarius-winter-2016.jpg

Aquarius | 4 of Cups

You may feel a little bored, apathetic,  or impatient this season, as it may seem you've hit a bit of a plateau. Be mindful to keep your ego or sense of entitlement in control this Winter.  What has left you so unsatisfied? What can you do to revamp your spark Aquarius? Don't isolate yourself in the darkness of your room. Open the blinds and let the sunshine in!  Don't bask in lower vibrational ways of thinking. Keep your eyes to the light as you face the darkness.

pisces-winter-2016.jpg

Pisces | 3 of Swords

What has broken your heart my dear sweet Pisces? What didn't work out the way you planned? As an idealist, this may have shaken you to your core emotionally. Constantly thinking of this issue, it's got you bound tightly in it's grip, replaying the incident over and over. Are you communicating your displeasure? How can you express these feelings in a healthy way that is more geared toward healing? Focus on regaining your sense of safety and security this Winter. Don't be afraid if it is time to cut some cords - in the end, it may bring more clarity to the situation.

How to Create a Gratitude Box | The Attitude of Gratitude | Maven Mindset

gratitude-box-2.jpg

A Gratitude Box is a fantastic tangible reminder of all that you have to be grateful for, especially during times of loss, hardship, or when you just want to feel all the love and blessings you have around you! Creating a Gratitude Box is helps you to open your heart and deepen your sense of appreciation for your life. What do you have to be thankful for?

Here’s how you can make your own!

 

Find your Focal Point

- Where do you want your gratitude to be focused? What are you grateful for? A new job? New baby? Your marriage? An achievement? Your family? Abundance? A loved one lost? Use an item as representation of this. I love to use oracle cards for this purpose!

Box

- What kind of box do you wish to use? Wooden? Plastic? An antique jewelry box?  Family heirloom? You can even a use a shoebox!

Cleanse + Clear

- Your box, as well as anything you put in it, should be cleared and cleansed of any negative, muddy, stagnant, or unwanted energy. You want the energy to be fresh, pure, and clear for your show of thanks!

Decorate it

- Show it some love! Put YOU into it.

What Can You Put Inside Your Box?

 

Crystal Suggestions

- You can work with rose quartz, green aventurine, clear quartz, garnet, scocelite, or any crystal that fits your reason for gratefulness.

Memorabilia/Special Mementos

- Photos, family photo of loved one who’s passed, a representation of your hard work like a diploma or certificate, your fur babies’ collar/tag if they brought you so much love and comfort, baby booties, something special from your wedding day. Use whatever is special to you and is a reason of gratitude!

A $10 Bill

- A reminder that you are always abundant

A Sacred Item

- Like a rosary, a medallion, mala beads, or a figurine of deity/spirit animal

Affirmations

- Write these as inspiration and motivation for future moments where you may be feeling lack, fear, doubt, anger, or depression

Cards

- Include a special birthday, congratulations, tarot, or oracle card. You can even include a significant handwritten letter someone sent to you

Write a List

- Write about all of the things you're currently grateful for to help you remember why you're grateful - a date (wedding/graduation date), a certain situation, a gift, your health, family, your bed, your education, peace, harmony, your spouse, your career, etc.

Check out this video, where I create my own Gratitude Box, for more inspiration!

 

Stay Grateful & Happy Creating!
