The Eight of Coins ~ Gentle Perseverance


Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Eight of Coins, representing: Prudence, perseverance, prosperity and carefulness. The Eight of Coins indicates that your creations are almost at full bloom. Now, like a careful gardener, you must gently nurture them so they can come into fruition. This is a particularly important time in your development, as your creations are still vulnerable to the “elements”, and need to be protected and treated with the upmost care. 

 The Eight of Coins says: Don’t force anything. Instead let the natural course of events allow an unfolding that will be experienced at exactly the right time. Pay attention to the parts of your being that need more attention and nourishment, and cultivate a practice of self-care. Be gentle and patient with yourself and your process. 

If you are feeling frustrated that things aren’t happening more quickly, breathe into your current prosperity, and give it room to take bloom. You’re in this for this for the long-haul, so there’s no need to rush.

Wishing you a nurturing and prosperous week!

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Leo ~ January 20th


Tonight (and early tomorrow morning for East Coasters) is the Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Leo. Eclipses represent sea changes, often bringing illumination to what needs to be transformed in our lives. Lunar Eclipses always join a Full Moon, and stimulate the shadow areas of our psyche, emotions and inner-world, bringing attention to these deeply sensitive areas. It is not unusual to FEEL intensively during this time. If you can embrace your feelings and emotions, whatever is illuminated for you now, without judgment, there can be a great transformation and awakening.

 Today’s Eclipse/Full Moon is in the sign of Leo. Leo is a fire sign, and rules the realm of self-expression, creativity and unique individuality, bringing the spotlight to how we give our light. We all have special gifts and talents, and Leo asks us to celebrate this! The Leo Full Moon is directly opposite the Aquarius Sun, bringing the expressions of Aquarius--unity, inspiration, higher consciousness and service to humanity—into the picture. This Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon asks us to integrate these two polarities, which could be described as: Celebrating your individuality, in the service to the greater good. Powerful stuff!

 Take time in the next few days (we feel Eclipses for days, even weeks before and after) to commune with your light--who you are on the deepest of levels--and to let go of what no longer serves your true essence. Rituals and meditative practices are especially powerful during eclipses. To understand more about where you will experience these energies, look at the house in your astrological chart that is ruled by Leo. 

 Happy illuminations!  

The King of Coins ~ Abundance: Body, Mind and Soul


Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the King of Coins, representing: Financial stability, investments, health and harvest. The King of Coins has mastered the material world. He is someone who others look to for his wisdom, especially in regards to finances, health and creating security. This King indicates that you are on the path to success, as you fully embodying your power in the “real” world!

Coins represent the realm of Earth, and in addition to money and finances, they also relate to our physical wellbeing. The King of Coins signals a time to make your health a priority, and invest in a physically abundant life. When in doubt, seek the guidance of a trusted healer to help you get on the right track. Here prosperity comes from a healthy life: body, mind and soul. 

Wishing you a successful week!

The Four of Pentacles ~ Reinvesting in the Present!


Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Four of Pentacles, representing: Power, stability, foundations and integrity. The Four of Pentacles represents stability, in your finances and life in general. It indicates that you have created solid and reliable foundations that will serve you well, now and into the future. Although it may be your instinct to want to add onto or move these foundations forward, now is not the time. Instead reinvest in your current situation and nurture what is already present.

This is a time to be conservative in your actions. Integrity is key, especially regarding your finances. If there’s anything that needs to be re-aligned and dealt with, this is the moment. You are learning that it can be beneficial to play by the rules, because they offer solid foundations in which to create from. Being on top of your current situation brings power to what you manifest next. For now, save your coins for another day. 

Wishing you a powerful week!
