Beard After Hours

*For those of you reading this out in the wild:  Some pals and I meet up every Sunday on Clubhouse to talk about Ted Lasso.  We’re doing a rewatch project while we wait for Season three to drop.  This was my Ted Talk today. Hope you enjoy. *


An open love letter to Beard After Hours

Ahhh, and here we are, at long last.  It’s time to discuss “Beard After Hours” our beloved show’s most controversial episode. Listen, I get why it polarizes people… it’s a departure from what we know and love about Ted Lasso.  It interrupts the momentum of the plot lines we NEED to know more about –  Rebecca and Sam, Ted’s confession to Sharon, and whether the quality of Roy Kent’s hugs can really compete with Chubaca. 

It also gives us a display of complex human behaviors that aren’t all influenced by the characters better angels, and if you’re my pal Kevin, that really pisses you off.

Today is about the Beard of it all.   I ask you to put your preconceived ideas aside and allow yourself to feel some of the magic that was created for this episode. The world in which we see Beard take on his hero’s journey from pants-less to fancy pants is filled with my three favorite M’s: moonlight, melancholy and madness.  It’s a really satisfying dive into film references and production value. There isn’t one wasted second, from the cinematography to the costumes, to the dialogue to the music.  And it continues to carry out the show’s central theme of kindness.  Villians are thwarted, what seems scary is revealed to be lovely,  playing fields get leveled, what is lost becomes found, and there is actually a light at the end of every tunnel, showing us again, that in the end, it will all work out.  Not the way we think it will, or the way we hope it does, but it will work out, exactly how it’s supposed to. Our job is to have zero expectations and just let go.  

I wrote that for those of you who disliked this episode, and I ask that you go back and watch it through that lens. 😉 

The Magic Inside the Melancholy

In the opening, we see Beard tell Ted that he doesn’t want to ride back with the team to Richmond, but to go shake the loss and the post game drama off, and invites Ted, who demurs with intuitive concern, and instead admonishes Beard to “be careful out there”. We hear “Not that kind of Bird!” as  Beard salutes Ted and makes his way to the underground amongst the echoes of fans singing Blue Moon, under the light of a giant Blue Moon that presides over this episode much like a wise matriarch, observing everything and making profound commentary along the way.

And it is here that I will begin my love letter to a dear friend. 

Dearest Beard, 

 It was so great to hear from you.  You know I love the way your mind works, and getting to see more of your inner workings means the world to me. Someday I hope you’re brave enough tell me your full name, but for now, I’m just grateful to get a look inside that inscrutable exterior. 

Wow, so much to talk about given everything that happened that night. I think I’ll just start at the beginning…   Hey – what do you think Ted meant when he said Bird by Bird? I’d have flipped him off too, I mean come on Ted – that was a gut punch. Don’t try to gloss over it with a platitude.  Even if it’s apt, it’s not helpful for goodness sakes. 

Man, the underground can be such a great place to think, don’t you think? I mean, being surrounded by other people with the whooshing of the train passing the stops,  people bustling in and out while you’re in literal slo-mo… I’d imagine that you had a lot to think about that night, and if I know you at all, I know that you were analyzing your own actions and thinking a lot about how you could have been better.  It’s not really something that you let me see, until now, but when you mentioned your Mom was full blown Q-Anon, I started to put the pieces together. 

I’ll bet having the opening song played acoustically by Jeff Tweedy amplified your feels. I sometimes imagine that my life has a soundtrack; how enviable that yours actually does. Though, honey, as someone who cares for you, I’m not sure that glaring at a child is a good idea, even if they were being a little twat. I’d hate for you to offend someone to the degree that they alert the nearest law enforcement officer. (Oh – right – you’re in London, that’s not so likely to happen.  But still, don’t get carted off in the paddy wagon because you’re scaring children, okay?)

Can I just say that I really like your apartment?   I know I know – You think you’re just a sad single man because you don’t have anyone to play chess  with, now that Jane’s moved out, but honestly, stop beating yourself up!  It’s good to want to do and be better, but don’t let those voices in your head get so loud that you can’t hear anything else. That’s counterproductive. 

BTW, Your place feels warm and layered with the things that you love to me.  Please regale me with some of your Burning Man stories the next time we meet. You know how much I love it when you do.

I think it’s always good to seek out human contact when the voices in our heads get too loud.  I’m not sure Mae was being entirely fair when she criticized the tactics of the match, but I like that she ultimately realized you needed a break to just drink your beer in peace.   I didn’t catch much of the game, but what I did see made it seem like Zoreaux was really on his own to defend… so pehaps her point was fair.  You didn’t sign off on that did you?  Sorry – I’m just really curious to hear your thoughts. I’m basically a football luddite, but that match seemed painful, even for me. The lads play with such heart, I really thought you had a fighting chance.

Honestly?  It could be a good time to stop being such a yes man with Ted. You’re the most well spoken, well read coach I’ve ever known.  Not that I know any Premiere/Championship League Football coaches, but seriously. Surely Ted respects you enough to listen after the whole benching Roy situation.  Please don’t feel bad about tripping over that barricade though. I know it was probably super embarrassing when it happened,  but to me it just demonstrates that you’re incredibly passionate about the game.

Not that you asked, but I have a lot of thoughts about you and Jane.

Paul, Baz and Jeremy are adorable.  I love that they had questions about  Ted, and Vegas, and  life. You’re spot on, three days is too fucking many.  I think their night with you was probably the highlight of their whole season. 

How in the HELL did you not just lose it speaking to that insufferable twat Sarah Coombes?

Christ on a cracker. I rather love that she fell for your prank . “THIS IS BONES and HONEY” (Sarah Coombes voice).  Please tell Baz to practice his strut though – I can help on Zoom if he’s interested.  It’s less in the elbows, more in the hips… anyway, where was I?  Oh yes.  Bones and Honey.

You are my fucking hero for introducing yourself as Declan Patrick Aloysius Macmanus… and pulling out your brogue….  Leveling the playing field for the lads was God’s work, IMO. Those stuffed shirts have clearly not  gotten the whole “Be Curious Not Judgmental” lecture from Ted. But it sounds like they turned out to be pretty solid after all.  BTW, What did Paul wear to Easter?

Can I please, please, please implore you to exercise caution going into stranger’s homes? I know your bruised ego was just thirsty for some validation from a gorgeous redhead, but dammit  – you ended jumping off a building to avoid getting your skull pulverized by her maniac boyfriend. Do you have a death wish?  Not to mention that falling into a skip must have been tremendously gross… and frankly, I’m amazed that those pants held up.  Hang on to them.  They’re rad. You should wear them somewhere fancy.  Maybe the Magic Castle?

I digress… Clearly book smarts are not tantamount to survival skills. I’m a little amazed that walking down a darkened alley towards the voices of people who were clearly up to no good was a choice you’d make.  I really do sincerely wonder if you wanted to get your ass beat. But WHY? To prove to yourself that you needed punishment for not standing up to Ted and doing your best to help the team win?

Who knew Mary’s dude was going to turn out to be such a sweet guy?  Can’t blame him for being jealous – if he was a cheater, of course he’s going to be suspicious of some random pants less bloke in his lady’s apartment.  Wouldn’t you?  I mean, you nearly fell apart when Jane went to have coffee with Finn. 

Which reminds me, you were really unlucky that night – losing your wallet and phone and getting kicked off the bus and accused of looking like Dame Judy Dench?  So Not fair. 

Given the way you feel about the universe, would you agree that it’s  not a coincidence that you kept losing your keys? It seemed like you were living out your own “After Hours”.  And then to break them and find shelter where Jane was?  I mean,  the rascal pulling the strings really made you jump through some hoops, yeah?

Listen, I know she makes you feel alive, interested and interesting…. I just don’t want to see either of you at the bottom of a cavern being eaten by crows because you can’t learn how to communicate with each other.  She’s most definitely meant to be in your life, that’s clear to me.

For how long though? 

I’m sorry Richmond lost the FA cup, but I think that this can and should be fuel to send you on to win the whole fucking thing. Am I right?

Richmond Til I Die –

Week of August 24th

My weekly Tarot Scopes are channeled messages for the collective crafted from the deep wisdom of the tarot.  They are valid and relevant for anyone, anywhere, anytime. They don’t have to be date or even sun sign specific – check your Rising and Moon sign, too! If it resonates with you – have FUN with it!


You have strong emotions about a situation, and you may feel upset, misunderstood, or used. This message comes to you as a pathway to peace by asking you to consider other’s points of view. You don’t need to agree with them. You’re simply being asked to understand their motivations and have compassion for their feelings. This process can positively shift the energy of power struggles, much like letting go of the rope during a tug-of-war. As you see the other person’s point of view, you open the door for creative solutions to enter. Look past the surface personality and see the divine within others.


You are qualified and ready to take the steps toward your desired outcome. You have what it takes to fulfill your dreams and your life’s purpose. Now is the time to make your move. You can do it. Take action without hesitation or delay. No more preparing or procrastination – just do it. You’re a valuable and beloved person. Break big goals into smaller steps, and take one action right now. You’re on the right path. Let go of perfectionism and know that you’re doing just fine.


It’s time for you to go, either away from a toxic situation, or toward something desirable. It’s the right time to make your move. The conditions are ripe and perfect, and the Universe is poised to support your progress. Possibilities: quit your job, leave a toxic relationship, move to a new location, start a new project without delay, go on vacation. NO excuses. Just do it! Your higher self has all the additional energy and motivation that you need to take action now.


You have the power to resolve the situation that’s on your mind. You have reserves of untapped magical abilities, which you’ve used successfully in the past. Pull these abilities out of storage and use them to work your magic now. Your clear and focused intentions, positive expectations, prayers, decrees, and action steps create the healings and manifestations you desire. Decide clearly what you will and won’t accept in this situation, as your clarity will bring about immediate results. Have steady faith in a positive outcome.


It’s time to stop struggling, pushing, or forcing things to happen. Such actions push against the universal flow and lead to frustrations and blocks. When you let the situation go to Spirit, you automatically open supportive doors that will bring solutions and an outcome exceeding your expectations. Let go of struggle, anger, unforgiveness, or anything else undesirable. Trust that the Universe is on your side.  Let go of an argument, judgments, or long-term hurt. Have compassion for everyone involved, including yourself. Be gentle and forgive yourself for what you think you’ve done or not done.


Happy Virgo Season!! The situation on your mind has come to you via the Spiritual Law of Attraction. You’ve attracted certain people or situations because they mirror your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs. In the same way, circumstances that you once found desirable are moving out of your life, because you’ve shifted your energy. “Like attracts like” means that everything you draw into your life is similar to your thought patterns. If you want to change what or who you attract, hold more positive, loving, and joyful thoughts. Your prayers and affirmations have drawn a wonderful new person or situation in your life. It’s not a reward or punishment – you can repel it or magnify it as you choose. Visualize and affirm only what you desire.


You’ve been indoors too long, and you need a refreshing break from stressful conditions. No matter how busy you are, there’s always time to pause for fresh air. This week’s message comes to you with a strong directive to spend time outdoors – alone, if possible. The healing effects of nature will revive your energy and outlook. You’ll return home with new ideas and a fresh perspective. Think of your nature retreat as an investment that will yield huge dividends. Your desires to take a vacation are valid. Your life purpose includes environmentalism or nature or working with flower essences, crystals, plant medicine, or other natural healing modalities—commune with animals, trees, and nature. 


This week’s message is a reminder to write! You’ve been receiving lots of signs and feelings to write lately, so let this be the SIGN that spurs you into action. Get out a pad of paper, or park yourself somewhere with your laptop and get writing. Don’t worry about punctuation, grammar, or spelling – you can take care of those details after. For now, just express your thoughts and feelings as they flow into your mind and body. Suggestions: keep a daily journal of your opinions and experiences, write down your intentions, goals, and desires; channel messages from your guides. Your life’s purpose involves writing. 


Stay focused on your intentions, desires, and priorities. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted by short-term situations, dramas, or other people’s demands. Keep a positive outlook about your dreams, and imagine they’ve already manifested into reality. Devote regular amounts of time toward your projects and priorities. Say no to distractions, and you will see results. Be assertive with demands on your time. Keep your promises to yourself and commit to your priorities. Detoxify your diet to help your mind be more clear and focused, and get some fresh air.


Your artistic talents need creative expression. You have hidden talents that lie dormant. This trapped energy can make you feel tired, restless, and anxious and can lead to addictions if the energy isn’t expressed. Even if your artistic abilities feel unpolished, they need an outlet. Make time to draw, paint, sing, play music, write, take photographs, make jewelry, sew, dance, or something creative. You may find the key to your life’s purpose and ideal career through this process. Express your true feelings. Your life’s purpose involves an artistic endeavor, like writing or music. 


This week’s message is about learning and teaching. You’ve learned a lot from your experiences and relationships, and now it’s time to pass that knowledge along to others. Your current situation is bringing you opportunities for spiritual growth and teaching you some valuable life lessons. As soon as you understand and accept these lessons, old patterns will drop away and be replaced by wonderful new experiences. The person or situation on your mind is bringing you crucial life lessons. Ask yourself: “What is the blessing that this situation has brought me?” You’re urged to teach others. 


You have healing abilities that you can direct through your hands, thoughts, and heart. Send loving energy to elevate and heal the situation you’re thinking of. You can clear the energy of a home, office, or vehicle as well. Your experiences with energy healing may be so compelling that you decide to pursue healing as a profession. Take a course in Reiki or Qi Gong. Your life purpose involves being a healer. Send love to a situation or person that has been troubling you. Avoid situations, places, or relationships with harsh energy. Everything is healing and will be okay. 

Week of August 17th

Aries: Ten of Pentacles

The focus is on financial prosperity and firm foundations for home/family life. It points to transactions involving a lot of money or an abrupt, better change in your living status or property buying and selling. You are entering into a prosperous time of life. However, the happiness and contentment you feel extend beyond material concerns. Your health is good, your family life is stable. You’re ready to move forward in the company of a group or community. You’re in tune with your higher self and likely experiencing incidence of clairvoyance, clairaudience, or precognitive dreams. Concentrate on the hidden experience in ordinary things. Magic lies just beneath the surface of everyday life.

Taurus: Ace of Pentacles/Three of Cups

Your community lends support, or is why you receive positive rewards for hard work and get a fresh start in all areas having to do with your business or finances. This week’s focus is on your body, physical health, proper diet/nutrition, material gain, prosperity, and success. You’re on a glorious adventure that will bring positive financial changes down the road. This is an endeavor that you share with like-minded, supportive souls. The timing is right, don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and take a risk – anything you invest now will come back to you with interest. You are a leader, with the power to guide others to manifest their plans, ideas, and dreams, by following your example. Celebrate your life and share its joy and wonder with those around you.

Gemini: Hermit/Sun REVERSED

It’s time to end the period of introspection and return to “everyday” life once again. You were on an introspective journey that required you to draw your energy and attention inward to find the answers deep within your soul. You may have realized that your most profound sense of truth and knowledge is within you – separate from the distractions of the outside world. Having uncovered the gifts of this soul-mine, it’s time to emerge and walk through a newly opened portal that offers a feeling of empowerment because your goals seem clearer than they have ever been. This new energy brings positivity, attainment, success, and material wealth. You’re in the loop of wellness, money, love, and luck. You are free of illusion and can view life as filled with truth and light.

Cancer: Empress/Knight of Pentacles

Ideas blossom and your plans find the support they need because they speak to other people, and inspire them. You are about to uncover a goldmine in a project or a client, and it may have to do with children, stray animals, or providing care and comfort to people or animals who need your particular brand of love and support. It’s a fertile time for the heart’s affairs, and you may be wined and dine by a prosperous, hardworking lover. (Think vacations on the family yacht or in a country manner, vs. poetry and flowers). The significant issues are appearing in your life all at once, triggering you to search for answers. The answers can be found serendipitously through your family, children, animals, books, nature, and art. Nurture yourself. Cultivate your fantasies and dreams, dare to reach for all that you imagine.

Leo: Six of Pentacles, Four of Swords

One way or another, life conspires to give you what you need. You won’t win the lottery, but you will get a push in the right direction. The support you receive isn’t just financial, you will find that your efforts and ideas are met with understanding and approval. Open yourself to the magic forces that allow you to give and receive aid when necessary. Any projects you launch will be successful, you find comfort and support with your partner, a debt is repaid, finances improve because of a third party. Healings occur, and what you give out comes back twofold. This will allow you to take a much needed time out. Focus your power and tap into the healing and restorative capabilities of the universe. You’ll emerge renewed and refreshed – as you begin the next leg of your journey.

Virgo: Ace of Wands/Empress

Think NEW: abundance, creative beginning, the birth of an idea, raise, promotion, a new job, or exciting challenges. A new chapter begins. Expect a position you’ve coveted, the sale of a book, a new project, or opening your own business. Your head is filled with ideas and boundless energy. You find your niche, and you get a taste of everything that might be and charge forward towards your dreams. New love, spiritual renewal with a current partner, and a general feeling of being nurtured or nurturing bring forth a rebirth of spirit. Your worldview expands as do your ideas of what’s possible. Listen to your gut, follow your impulses, and seize all the opportunity coming your way. You may be meeting strangers who feel like familiar members of your soul pod this week.

Libra: Hanged Man/Two of Cups

You need to do a one-eighty in perceiving a particular relationship or connection in your life. Adjust your point of view and reverse your established order of doing things. If you are single and seeking romance, courtship, and passion that ultimately leads to marriage, you can expect postponed plans, stagnation, and frustration. Same for you partnered up Libras, your partnerships will be going through a shift as well. The more profound significance of the delay in moving forward speaks to old beliefs and ideas that have lost their meaning and need to be released before your way becomes clear. Avoid victim consciousness because this standstill isn’t permanent. You’re merely in a rut because of rigid ideas and fixed concepts that no longer work. Once you release them, your heart chakra opens, and you will feel at one with the universe, ready to accomplish more together than you can achieve alone.

Scorpio: Two of Wands/Ten of Wands Reversed

Your ships are coming in – success is imminent! You know what you are capable of, what needs to be done, and realize that you’re moving in the right direction. Your investment in ideas, time, and money is about to pay off. You are collaborating with another person on a creative, business project, a screenplay, a court case, or a small business endeavor. You’re pleased with the way the partnership is unfolding. You can lay your burdens down because, in business or companionship, you can trust this person to have your back and support your work ethic with matched energy. You needn’t carry everything, delegate and accept help where it is offered. You’re being liberated.

Sagittarius: Three of Wands/Nine of Cups

Hallelujah, you’re poised on the threshold of success, and your efforts to attain a dearly cherished dream are about to pay off! You’re on the precipice of a significant milestone, and you’re on solid ground. Have confidence in your future plans because not only do you possess the power to bring about your heart’s desire – it’s about to land on your doorstep. If you’re single, a soulmate appears, if you’re a writer, your book or screenplay sells, you have an art exhibit, get new orders for your services, the money arrives, and the news about health, wealth, and family is good. You’re tapped into the magical forces that surround us, and your fairy godmother has waved her proverbial wand. Enjoy it, and rest secure in the knowledge that it’s not going to vanish at the stroke of Midnight. This new era will prove long-lasting and is well earned.

Capricorn: Heirophant/Hermit

Your search for personal truth is partly due to a clash with the powers that be, whether religious, family, or business. The tradition, ritual, or established order of doing things has triggered a need to understand and clarify your own beliefs and position. After a period in which you go inwards to plumb the depths of your inner truth, you realize that you don’t have to compromise your personal integrity or ideas, but that you will benefit from folding them into the underlying structure. Conventional belief systems challenge you and deepen your spiritual values. Empowered by a deeper understanding of your mission, you benefit from rituals that connect you to “All That Is.”

Aquarius: Strength/Three of Pentacles

You are laying a solid foundation for your future. You’re in a strong position – you’ve got the innate ability to deal with whatever life brings. Draw on that enormous energy to break through and overcome obstacles. You are seizing control of your own destiny and moving forward with your plans. Your sex life is about to take off – you either meet someone to whom you’re instantly attracted and hit it off with or your relationship leaps into a passionate, intense period. You’re feeling confident and connected with this person and building something together that will last a lifetime. Expect a balance between the spiritual and material and your conscious and unconscious powers. Listen to your intuition and call on your inner knowing to manifest what you want. It will prove to be both beautiful and enduring.

Pisces: The World/The Fool

In every ending, there is a beginning. All of the elements of a situation are drawn into a synthesized whole. You’ve reached a deep understanding of the issues that concern you. You have realized that everything in life starts within and radiates outward. Your most private beliefs create the reality in which you live. Everything is available to you. Free yourself from restriction, expand your horizons. This is a peak experience, where you move closer to becoming who you really are. Enjoy your triumphs before starting again. You may realize that you’ve had the perfect romantic partnership for a long time. Money comes in, perhaps through inheritance and quite possibly more than one source. Enjoy it, and then get ready, because soon, you’ll be off on another glorious adventure, filled with the spirit of wild abandon.

Week of August 10th.

Hello dear souls,

I took last week off because I needed the rest.  I am refreshed, renewed and connected.

The weekly Tarot Scopes are valid and relevant for anyone, anywhere, anytime. Check your Rising and Moon sign, too! If it resonates with you – have FUN with it! Run with it. 

The scopes complement your good judgment and personal intuition and shed light on your present circumstances and future events. My goal in writing them for you is to provide pragmatic, magical, and uplifting guidance to help you understand the energies at play.  

So, without further ado, here’s what’s in store for you glorious beings this week:

Aries: Wheel of Fortune 

You don’t have to remain locked in place. Embrace the risk, take the plunge, and luck rides with you. As Goethe said: “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!” You are entering a new cycle. Originality and unconventional ideas trigger new methods, new lifestyles, and new belief systems. You are revolutionizing your life to bring it into line with who you are and who you want to be. Reevaluate anything that no longer meets your needs and release as necessary. There is more to your life than the external world, commune with your inner self to discover the hub of strength from which you create your worldly fortune.

Taurus: Hanged Man

You are being invited to release pent up or negative emotions, end your struggle and accept what is. Eckhart Tolle says: “Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.” There is freedom in overturning old priorities and allowing yourself to see your reality from a new angle. The events in your life have forced you to look within and recognize that your inner truth is what creates your outer reality. One is the direct reflection of the other.

Contrary to popular belief, you win by letting go and not forcing your will on someone or something. If you feel yourself wanting to act – that is when you should wait. Ironically, by making this contradictory move, you find what you’re looking for.

Gemini: Justice

The Justice card often appears when you are concerned with doing what is right or making sure you receive your due. It can also signal that you are feeling the impact of a past mistake or good deed. The cause you set in motion at one time is now returning to you as an effect. What you’ve waited for will materialize, conflicts will resolve, and harmony will reign once more. You are between cycles – you may be ending connections, making or breaking contracts, legally or personally. Balance is required in all parts of your life now, make sure you give equal attention to work, exercise, health, sleep, and relationships. Any financial darkness you have been facing will be suddenly illumined by an unexpected windfall. Enjoy today. 

Cancer: Page of Wands

You’re being given a chance to experience and use your creativity, courage, charm. It’s time to take a novel approach and find a new area of self-expression. Your mantra is “YES I CAN,” Your entire situation is suffused with the spirit of excitement and adventure. You can express your individuality and power with light-hearted abandon. Expect messages concerning work or employment. You get the job, initiate new projects, or find an agent for your written work, screenplay, or novel. A new relationship may sail into your life, and it’s exactly the kind of partnership you’ve been hoping for. The energy around you is fun, exciting, and fulfilling. Your point of power lies in the present.

Leo: Nine of Wands

You’re a fighter who’s seen some battles, but you’re still standing. When times are hard, and we feel road worn and weary, being open and trusting doesn’t feel safe. We throw our defenses up in the act of self-protection. Life’s lessons can be hard, especially when our hopes have been dashed. It is entirely reasonable to feel defensive after weathering an event that has wounded us. Wear your battle scars like a badge Lionheart, don’t let it make you bitter. The experience may have been hurt you, but it has also strengthened and forged within you the power to overcome any obstacle. You got this. You are much closer to your goals than you think.  

Virgo: Ace of Cups

Trust your inner voice when responding to events in your external world. Your connection to your higher self is solid, bringing with it the possibility of deep feelings, intimacy, attunement, compassion, and love.  A seed of deeper emotional awareness has been planted in your life, although you may not recognize it yet. It can take the form of a strong feeling, a new love, deep intuitive knowing, or empathy. Stay alert for gifts, opportunities that hit your heart just right, romantic encounters, and synchronicities. You may experience love at first sight, luck into the perfect new job, or move to the living space you’ve been dreaming about. Follow your heart.

Libra: Eight of Wands 

Before taking action, we think, imagine, dream, discuss, and plan. Then we bring our ideas down to earth and make them real. Now is the time to declare yourself without hesitation. All the elements of a situation are lined up and ready for you to proceed. Do not hesitate. New information is coming in, pay attention to everything. Single Libras may meet someone quickly and hit it off big time. The money arrives, your healing speeds up, your beliefs shift, and things begin to click. It all happens fastasthat. One moment you’re a skeptic, and the next, you’re immersed in a transpersonal experience that seems to slam into your life. It will touch every facet of your existence, triggering deeply desired life-transforming events.

Scorpio: Seven of Pentacles

If you take a step back to evaluate your progress, you will see the value in what you’ve done so far or, you will clearly see where you need to make a course correction. Course correcting isn’t a bad thing; it can help us stay in tune with our own changing needs and goals, instead of carrying on even though our original purpose no longer resonates as deeply as it once did. You are seeing the fruits of your labor now. You can take a moment and catch your breath and look around. Do you wish to continue down this path, or go in a new direction? When we’re busy, we don’t always take the time to reflect on what we’re doing or why. You have the opportunity to check in with yourself and make sure that you’re getting the results you want and to move in a different direction if you choose to. You’re not locked in, change is still possible. 

Sagittarius: Four of Swords

For some of us, resting and being still is the ultimate challenge. Activity and busyness can become a way of avoiding tuning into our inner voice and feeling our feelings. There is no shortage of things to do, and endless avenues of distracting ourselves. Slow down and get some rest. If you are recovering from an illness, allow yourself quiet time to heal. Even if you feel completely healthy, you risk getting sick if you don’t take a break. Give yourself time to get some perspective without rushing to a resolution. When we are silent, we can more easily go within and find answers in stillness. Diving into the depths of your inner self holds its own rewards, but it comes with the challenge of silencing the monkey mind. Take this opportunity to put your concerns aside and rest; you will emerge renewed and refreshed.

Capricorn: The Tower

Sudden change in the form of upheaval, disrupted plans, emotional chaos, or experiencing a burst of insight is likely right now. Sometimes change is gradual, and we get time to adapt to the events unfolding, but this is not one of those times. The changes your are experiencing are fast and explosive, not unlike Cher slapping Nicholas Cage in the movie Moonstruck and yelling, “SNAP OUT OF IT!” How you choose to respond to the changes will determine how uncomfortable or painful they will ultimately be. It will be helpful if you can recognize that this disruption occurred because it was necessary and needed. Maybe asking you to embrace the change is too much, but try to see the positive. You may actually feel relief in being forced into a new direction. The overthrow of existing conditions brings a fresh start.

Aquarius: Five of Wands

You wake up and stumble to the bathroom and stub your toe, you spill coffee on your shirt and walk in to work with toothpaste on your chin after hitting every red light. Everything in your environment feels like an annoying hassle. In professional settings, there is no coordinated effort or agreement. You’re going to need extra patience and perseverance to get to the point where you can accomplish something. The Five of Wands does not represent significant blockages, just many small, irritating ones: death by a thousand paper cuts. Sometimes this kind of environment can trigger within us the fight and drive to overcome the odds. We uncover a hidden well of strength and resolve and rise to the challenge. If this is not true for you, take a step back from the situation and appraise things honestly so you can create a plan. Then, work toward cooperation and proceed with whatever it is you have to do.

Pisces: Three of Cups

You’re in the flow, feeling warm and connected to your friends and community. You’re putting yourself out there, sharing, connecting, giving, and receiving resources and help. When you feel exuberant, and on top of the world, there is no-one quite like you to create a network of support with other like-minded souls. Your intuition is on point, and it helps you to navigate and challenges and give wise counsel. If you’ve been mired in confusion about a relationship, clarity is nigh. A pending matter reaches a happy conclusion. Estrangements are mended in a joyful reunion. Old wounds heal and allow you to move forward in your life. 

Week of July 27th

Greetings, glorious souls! Here’s what is in store for you this week! Pisces is going first, for a change. Have a safe and happy week.

Pisces: Three of Swords

The Three of Swords can represent the hellish little curveballs that life throws at us. They can include betrayal, abandonment, rejection, separation, or a reversal of fortune. These events hurt because they usually hit us when we least expect it. You may know what this refers to, but if not, consider this a heads up. There could be something amiss in your life that you’re not aware of or are not yet willing to acknowledge. Most curveballs hit us when we’re looking the other way. Examine your situation and talk to the people in your life. Take nothing for granted. Acknowledge your pain, examine, and process it. Then let it go and move on. 

Aquarius: Six of Swords

The six of swords often indicates a metaphorical gateway through which you journey away from your problems. It could be a literal journey to a new home or workspace or a symbolic journey that plays out on a spiritual level.  Sometimes this card can represent an emotional state where you feel dull and listless. There’s nothing seriously wrong, but nothing feels right either. You may be moving from a sad or disconnected frame of mind to a more positive one, with hope. You’ve made decisions that are now pushing you in a new direction. The future may be unknown, but you’re ready to embrace what awaits you and distance yourself from past problems.

Capricorn: Eight of Wands

You’re declaring yourself openly, finding successful resolutions, and finding the missing puzzle pieces. It’s time to take action and put your plans into action, even if that means concluding what you’ve been doing. Good news is headed your way via email or text message that will put a different spin on the overall picture. Broaden your horizons, try out new ideas, begin new projects, and start to conduct your business in a new or innovative way. Build a website – the world is smaller than you think. Money comes in rapidly, healings occur, and new love strikes hot and fast. Current romantic involvements could heat up quite a bit.  Life transforming experiences abound. Get ready.

Sagittarius: Six of Wands

You’ve been working hard towards a goal, and success is within your reach. You have overcome the obstacles with a combination of persistence, intelligence, and clear vision. Your cherished dream is unfolding, despite any problems or delays you’ve experienced. You are vindicated and rewarded for all of your hard work. You’ve earned this victory through drive, ambition, desire, and belief in your own abilities. Enjoy your triumph and realize that what you’ve manifested (flourishing career, the perfect partner, robust health, financial increase) can be repeated. Well done, Archer.

Scorpio: Eight of Pentacles

You are absorbed in a project or a situation that consumes all of your attention, whether it’s a work project, family difficulty, personal goal, or unpleasant duty. Sometimes blessings fall into our laps to be enjoyed. Other times we must put out great effort to obtain them. You may be honing your skills in workshops, an actual degree program, or turning a talent or hobby into a new career. Financial assistance will come through for studies or a new project or business. Get more rest than you usually do, and keep balanced – any physical complaints are just evidence of feeling off-kilter.  Your point of power lies in the present. 

Libra: Two of Pentacles

Think balance, adaptability, equilibrium. Think Lancelot navigating the labyrinth of swinging blades in the film First Knight. He is alert, agile, and patient, knowing when to move and when to hold still, to avoid sudden death. You are graceful and effective while juggling all the demands that are made of you. If this idea feels foreign to you, or you do not feel this level of self-confidence right now, rest assured that you have all you need to meet your every goal. Embrace the challenge. We can’t always navigate life in a straight line, prepare to be flexible, listen to your gut, and avoid being rigid. Your versatility is your greatest strength.

Virgo: Two of Swords

You’ve reached the proverbial fork in the road and don’t know which path to take. You keep procrastinating about the choice because there is something about the situation that you won’t let yourself see. You’re denying your true feelings, and stifling a natural response. You can keep others at arm’s length and continue to hide your distress, but to what end? If you’re afraid to act, you will continue to stay stuck. If you choose not to know, to avoid unpleasantness, you will eventually wall yourself off and become trapped behind what you intended to build for protection. Remove the barriers, open your heart back up. Don’t pretend something is okay when it isn’t.

Leo: Judgement 

You’re making hard choices and taking a stand. Having awakened to all the possibilities available to you, you’re transforming and making a fresh start. You are recognizing your true vocation, filled with an inner conviction and an impulse to act. You are drawn in a new direction, unburdening yourself by releasing guilt and sorrow and forgiving yourself (or others). Sometimes you must decide and make a judgment. At times like this, it’s best to weigh the matter and commit to a decision without self-reproach. If you are being judged yourself, learn from the process. Focus on what is of value, correct what needs correcting, but never lose sight of your worth.

Cancer: Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups is astrologically linked to the sign of Cancer. She embodies the prototypical nurturer and has a heart filled with compassion. She nurtures children, animals, environmental issues, and the causes that she fervently believes in. She excels in metaphysics and maybe a clairvoyant, psychic or tarot reader as well. She can also be involved with undercover work, acting, or medicine. She’s spiritual and loving, but also sexual and often secretive. A new work opportunity comes through and hits you just right. Sexual electricity seizes you, and your relationship heats up in an incredibly romantic way. Your emotions have a powerful effect on your health, if you’re blocked emotionally, it manifests in your body. Unblock your emotions, and prosperity will rush in.

Gemini: Queen of Swords

The Queen of Swords is a Gemini. She sizes up situations astutely and faces up to even unpleasant truths. Nobody diffuses awkward situations with a wisecrack so elegantly. She doesn’t take herself or anyone else too seriously and is free of self-righteous judgments. She has seen it all, doesn’t suffer fools, is direct, and expects you to be. Her observations are piercingly correct, but never hurtful. You are being urged to adopt her energy for your benefit. Are you being completely honest? Do you see the humor in the situation? Once you learn to incorporate your intellect and your emotions, your path becomes clear.

Taurus: King of Wands

The energy of the King of Wands is inspiring, creative, charismatic, and bold. This king is willing to take chances when the stakes are high and sets an example others want to follow. He’s an influential, natural leader. You’re being guided to use these traits to propel you forward. Alternatively, an older man in your life inspires you. He pushes you to excel and use your full potential. He encourages you to pursue your dream, whatever it might be. Your journey is underway. Remain open to possibilities and opportunities that seem to come to you from out of nowhere. Follow your impulses and pay attention to synchronicities, they are signposts directing you on your path.

Aries: Seven of Wands

Taking a stand is a forceful act that changes the world’s energy flow for good or ill. You’re in an advantageous position, and you can succeed, no matter how competitive the situation appears to be. We flow with life like a boat traveling down a river, and sometimes, we’re not content to flow, and we make a course correction or change course entirely. Now is that time. Tie up loose ends, release the past and move on with your life. If your dream is to be self-employed, take the plunge. If you aren’t happy doing what you’re doing – then stop doing it. You stand up for your beliefs, meet your challenges, and overcome the opposition. Cheers! 

Week of July 20th


You’ve been working hard, take a nap, and get some rest. Slow down, be gentle with yourself right now. Can you cancel your appointments (at least part of the day) and nap? You are being urged to let go of unnecessary activities and focus on self-renewal. Love yourself and promise to treat yourself with the respect and care you deserve. No rushing or time urgency is allowed today; just grant yourself a day of sweet kindness, and treat yourself as gently as you would a child or a beloved.


 Sometimes we get into ruts and routines because they feel safe and comfortable. You are now being urged to swim outside your comfort zone. It’s time to take risks and explore new ways of thinking, living, or being in relationships. When you commit to explore and experiment, the universe grants you wonderful new experiences. You don’t have to settle into these new practices, but do test the water and venture out. Sometimes when we branch out and try new things, we return to our comfortable old routines a changed (for the better) person. Enjoy some different options – try something new.


Your intuition is correct – take action accordingly. You’re reasonably sure about your next move, and this is your sign, validation that you can move ahead and execute your plans. Your intuition is accurate, and you can trust it. The joy you feel at knowing that your intuition is spot on may be tempered by the fear of making changes. However, all of the details are being taken care of. You are supported in all ways, as long as you ask for help and accept help when it comes. It may come from unexpected places.


Your personal power increases if you release any father related issues to Creator. What’s left to be healed needn’t take a lot of time, all that’s required is your willingness to be free of any old anger, grief, or fear related to your male parent. Male energy is expansive and giving. Female energy is nurturing and receptive. If we’re unhealed with regards to our father, the world seems ungenerous. If we’re unhealed toward our mother, we won’t accept the gifts the universe continually offers us. When you focus on your father’s spiritual truth,  your heart will be receptive to continuous, all-encompassing giving. Focus on the love and the truth of your father. Let go of everything but the love and the lesson.


As a result of all your prayer and manifestation work, you’re attracting synchronistic events. Those “chance meetings” and the information you just “happen” to receive are answered prayers. The more you notice the serendipitous events, the more they’ll occur for you. You can even write them down in a journal to magnetize more synchronicity into your life. You may already know that there are no coincidences or accidental occurrences. Your thoughts and focus are like a magical energy beam that can influence and reshape your life into a masterpiece that reflects your higher self. 


 Spend some time alone, meditating on what you truly desire. Make a firm appointment to take some alone time in a quiet place, ideally near nature. Make sure you won’t be interrupted for at least an hour and bring a notebook and a pen to record your thoughts. Breathe, relax, center yourself, and then pose the following question to your higher self? “What do I want to do next?” Write whatever comes to you in response, and do not worry about whether it is correct or even possible. Then ask yourself: “What’s my heart’s true desire right now?” Write down the answer. Spend time noting your priorities so that you’ll know how to structure your time to match what’s most important to you.


It’s important to only think about what you desire, not what you fear. Monitor your thoughts. You have no neutral thoughts – every one of them creates an effect in your life. Be vigilant in only holding positive thoughts. Most of us slip into negativity occasionally, welcome to being human. However, you can undo the effects of negative thinking by recognizing them and immediately replacing them with positive thoughts of your dearly held true desires. During this period, you can manifest your highest potential at the most rapid rate possible. 


Let go of the old and worn out so that the new can come into your life. Let go emotionally and intellectually. Say “goodbye” in your mind and heart. Once you do this, the physical part of letting go will happen quickly and naturally. Releasing will be peaceful and harmonious. Don’t worry about how to let go or how you will replace what you are letting go of. Instead, focus on having faith that what you need and desire will be yours in perfect time. You’ll get clear guidance about when it’s time to take action until then stay lovingly detached from your old situation.


A significant life change is going to bring you great blessings. You may feel as if your life is upside down right now, and while it may be – everything that’s happening is for the best. The changes taking place are actually helping you leave behind that which no longer serves you. Your spiritual purpose with old situations is now complete. The lessons have been learned. Welcome divinely guided change and focus on staying centered in the hurricane’s eye as change occurs around and within you. You and your loved ones will always be provided for, no matter what the outer situations may appear to be. New opportunities to learn, grow, prosper, and create new relationships are being ushered in. The key is to breathe and embrace the change, even if it seems intimidating. You are being pushed beyond your comfort zone, but you’ll rise to the challenge and thrive. 


Sometimes life feels stuck in limbo while we await information about the next steps to take. Sometimes we are asked to be the decision-maker and decide what we really want. What do you want? Instead of letting ourselves default into non-action, take charge, and set your own course. You have all the resources that you need to pull yourself out of any situation as long as you make a firm, unequivocal decision. Your decisiveness is the catalyst to clear the way for your manifestation. Let go of all fears and worries, focusing only on the destination you intend to reach. Listen to your intuition.


Increase your standards and expect more for yourself. You’ve been trying to rationalize that some situation is okay when it’s not. You’ve settled for less than you desire and for much less than you deserve. You don’t need to compromise! The universe will help you heal or replace troubling situations in your life. All you need to do is ask for help and listen for the guidance you get. Visualize your true heart’s desires. Don’t worry about being disappointed. You deserve a great life, and you have the power and the divine assistance to achieve it. Fear and worry will slow down your manifestation, so keep releasing your cares and doubts, and instead, stay focused on the positive. Reach for the stars, knowing that you are qualified and deserving of these gifts. Open your arms to receive them.


Notice repetitious signs and your inner guidance, they carry valuable information. Pay extra attention to the messages you receive. Notice conversations you hear, comments made to you by others, and your inner feelings and thoughts. Look for common threads among these signs, as they’re a form of guidance to help you manifest your divine purpose and desires. It’s not your imagination that you see these signs. Whenever you hear or feel something three or more times, it’s information worthy of your attention. These signs may also give you feedback about your belief system since thoughts attract mirroring experiences. Use the signs to heal beliefs that dishonor you and swim in the direction that your guidance points you. 

Week of July 13th

ARIES: The Tower – Reversed

Change isn’t being forced on you by external circumstances.  The changes symbolized by the Tower in reverse come from deep within. The upheaval caused by your personal transformation has been initiated because you are questioning your fundamental beliefs about your values, purpose, and meaning. The change you are creating is paving the way towards a new and more evolved version of yourself. You may also be clinging to the status quo no matter the costs, and in deep denial that an old belief system still works for you. The Tower in reverse urges you to let go of what is no longer relevant or healthy.  It is a challenging but valuable lesson that will catapult you towards your goals.

TAURUS: Eight of Cups

You’re leaving the past behind. You are moving on from a situation because of disappointment, or because it has reached a natural conclusion. You could be leaving a relationship or an unfulfilling job or career. It’s a conscious decision, based on the need to experience new things and because you have gone as far as you can go. You may feel a sense of sadness about making this break, but you are eager to move forward with your life and onto happier things. Once these cords are severed, new possibilities and opportunities open up for you. There is a depth of meaning in solitude. Follow your own voice, it will lead you to all that has been lacking in your life.

GEMINI: The World

You have reached a deep understanding of the issues that concern you and realize that everything in life starts within and radiates outward. Your most private beliefs create the reality that you live in. Everything is available to you now. If you’ve been working on a long-term project that seems like it will never end, the conclusion is near. This is a peak experience, but not the realization of an ultimate life goal. You’re becoming who you really are and have rewards to reap before moving on. Embrace synchronicities, they are your higher self’s way of getting your attention and guiding you.

CANCER: King of Swords

You’re being put on notice that it’s time to let go of thoughts and beliefs that have outlived their purpose. Your intellect is powerful and can cut to the heart of any matter, uncovering powerful truths. If you’ve been experiencing any tension regarding money matters, they will come to a head very soon. Deal with the news in a straightforward manner and move forward, and don’t look back. This will dissolve any blockage and allow the prosperity flow to move into your life again. If someone in your life – a lover or boss is blunt or oblivious to how their opinions land, give yourself some breathing space and calmly explain your side of the situation. You will benefit from a short, sweet vacation.  

LEO: Strength 

The astrological counterpart of the Strength card is Leo. The rulership implied in this card is self-dominion and implicit trust in your own abilities. A strong person doesn’t need to exercise control over others, their strength comes from within, and is based on wisdom, knowledge, and a belief in oneself. There is a balance between the spiritual and material and harmony between opposing forces. You have the innate ability to deal with whatever life brings. You meet someone new, to whom you are instantly attracted to or enter into an intense, passionate period with your current partner. Listen to your intuition and call on your inner knowing to help you manifest whatever you want. 

VIRGO: The Sun

You feel empowered because your goals seem brighter than they’ve ever been. You embrace your destiny and realize you have created it. If you have applied for a job, you will get it, and it will turn out to be everything you want. You love your work. Your productivity and creativity are recognized and appreciated. If you’re single, someone new captures your heart. If you’re already involved, you and your significant other experience a resurrection of an earlier passion. Relax and enjoy yourself. You’re in the wellness loop, and you have survived the darkness. Follow the light. 

LIBRA: Two of Cups

Emotional balance, romance, courtship, and passion that leads to marriage is what the two of cups symbolizes. Friendship and enjoyable social activities are highlighted. Spend time with people you care about. It’s a perfect time to settle any minor disputes and resolve past differences. Get clear about what you want and need in life before committing to another. Work partnerships are harmonious, cooperative, and friendly. Romantically, single Libras may encounter a person with whom a sexual attraction resonates at deep instinctive levels. It’s a soulmate reunion. Your heart chakra opens, you feel at one with the universe.

SCORPIO: Three of Pentacles

You’re entering into new realms of experience in your chosen career. It’s not a course change, it’s stepping into what you have been working toward. Personal relationships deepen, and past problems resolve, leading to new levels of intimacy and loyalty. You are using all of your skills and abilities to create something beautiful and enduring, that lasts far into the future. If you’re working on a writing project, a book, a lecture, or a presentation, you may have to fine-tune it, but the foundation is solid, and you will sell your project.  You are leveling up.

SAGITTARIUS: Four of Swords

The four of swords can mean a period of inactivity away from your regular life. Your strength is exhausted, or circumstances have forced you to slow down or temporarily drop out and rest. For now, you’re stuck in neutral. This break in activity is long overdue; use it to revitalize yourself. Take a timeout, go on a vacation, a retreat, or just relax and get in touch with your inner self. The standstill may cause you some frustration, but the time away is mandatory. Put your concerns to one side and embrace the downtime. You will emerge renewed and refreshed.

CAPRICORN: Page of Swords

The broader issues in your life are calling out for attention. Set realistic goals for your personal development, and sign up for the workshop, classes or whatever it takes to get on track. You’re a powerful thinker with a curious mind and a keen insight into the human condition. This will help you not lose your temper with a coworker who thinks he’s your intellectual superior. You can resolve any challenge by exploring the other side of a situation and examining it without losing sight of or compromising your principles. If you’re burned out by too much work and no play, take a long weekend and do what you love best. You’ll return with a fresh perspective.

AQUARIUS: King of Cups

You work or want to work out of your home and working to make this a reality. Profit isn’t your sole motive, your work has to be something that you love doing. Your heightened intuition leads you to new opportunities. If you’re single, you meet someone in a group or activity related to water – boating, sailing, swimming. If you’re in a relationship, you reach a new level of understanding, renew vows. Your answers are close to home, maybe as near as your bookshelf. Your deepest inspirations may come through dreams, so keep a journal. By requesting dreams that answer your questions, you harvest the richness of your own being.

PISCES: Two of Pentacles

Think balance, adaptability, and equilibrium. You may juggle several projects, and sources of income, or handle school while working. You strike a balance with the cheer and enthusiasm of a juggler in a vaudeville act. There’s hidden magic in the way you maintain your equilibrium. You may also be harmonizing your personal spiritual development with outer material growth. The key is to avoid spreading yourself too thin. If you’re unable to find time with your partner, it’s worth it to make adjustments to pull it off. A passion is rekindled, and a major change ushers in a new era for the relationship. Money is going out as fast as it comes in, but it’s fluid and will keep moving. Your versatility is your greatest strength.

Week of July 6th

ARIES: Justice

The astrological counterpart to Justice is Libra – your opposite sign. Its influence is impartial, objective, detached, and nonjudgemental. What you’ve waited for materializes, conflicts are resolved, and harmony reigns. You get what you believe you deserve and experience the world as an echo of your thoughts and actions. Cycles end and new ones begin. Remain firm in your heart’s desire, and your heart’s desire is obtained much more quickly. Balance, balance, balance! Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not yet here, enjoy today.  PS. The person on your mind may be a Libra. 

TAURUS: Queen of Wands

This Queen is businesslike and exuberant about everything she does. She seems to have inexhaustible reserves of energy, a flair for drama, and passion for everything she believes in. Expect an improvement in work and good news about work in general. If your boss is female, she is firmly in your court. News is on the way about an issue or situation that has concerned you. You may move house,  or refurbish/remodel your current home to sell it. Sell stocks, buy land. Romance may be marked by passion and intense emotions, expect the unexpected. Follow your hunches. 

GEMINI: Ten of Swords

You’re facing forced change and the final resolution of a situation or the dramatic end of a cycle. You give up on a lost cause and get on with the true meaning of your life. Ultimately, you feel relieved, accept the inevitable, and move on. Despite the harsh depiction of this card in most decks, it isn’t about death, it’s about endings, and sometimes misfortune. Sometimes it spells the end of a relationship, a situation, or a particular time in your life. The loss can seem worse than it is because it feels unexpected and ends something you had been counting on. Actually, the worst is over, and it’s time to take out the trash before you can move forward. You’ve experienced disaster and survived. There is little left in your life to fear. 

CANCER: Seven of Pentacles 

It’s time to take stock. Evaluate your achievements and trust that the projects you’ve set into motion can now move forward under their own momentum. You may be tempted to rest for a bit, but it won’t last long. Your inspiration urges you forward. Through the honest appraisal of your needs and desires, you attune yourself to deeper levels of awareness. Take your cues from synchronicities, hunches, and intuitive hits. You have what it takes. Everything in your life is up for review. You may be examining your personal relationships, your work, and your purpose on the planet. The answers are less important than the process. Life unfolds from the inside out, not the other way around. 

LEO: Queen of Cups

She’s the prototypical compassionate nurturer. She showers her love and kindness on children, animals, environmental issues, and the causes in which she fervently believes. She excels in medicine and metaphysics and could be a psychic, healer, astrologer, tarot reader, actor, or investigator. She’s spiritual and loving but also sexual and secretive. A new work opportunity may come to you that hits you just right. It’s satisfying and uses all your skills and abilities. You may enter into a tumultuous, passionate affair, filled with sexual electricity – or a period of that with your current flame. Your emotions have a powerful impact on your health, and your spiritual path flows through all areas of your life.

VIRGO: Three of Cups

Your intuition blossoms, confusion lifts, clarity emerges. A pending matter reaches a happy conclusion. Estrangements are mended, old wounds heal and allow you to move forward. Finances are fluid, speedily going out and coming back in. You make a killing and then spend it on a big-ticket item, like a future celebration, vacation, or downpayment. Health is good, but you may be advised to cut back indulgences. Group interactions with like-minded souls lead you to a spiritual awakening. Through shared ritual, you experience a feeling of renewed peace and reverence. You celebrate life and share its wonder and joy with those around you.

LIBRA: Death

The Death card doesn’t mean physical death. It means transition, transformation, rebirth, and permanent change.  It is a revitalizing force that sweeps away the old to make way for the new. The astrological correspondence is Scorpio and the eighth house of death and regeneration. This change is required. If you don’t change willingly, something will force you to, then like a phoenix, you will rise, reborn. Do you have a compulsion to cling to old situations, no matter the cost? Expect a complete turnaround. Any loss results in benefit in the form of new, better, and more aligned with who you actually are. Transformation occurs as you release situations and relationships that no longer serve your highest good.

SCORPIO: Five of Swords

Linked with Venus in Aquarius, the five of swords portends a hollow victory. You win, but was it worth the effort? Is this what you really want? Examine your motives and ask yourself if you secretly wanted to lose in this situation. Perhaps you used or were victimized by unfair tactics. Either way, this card talks about a confrontation that brings pain to both parties.  Despite this, you’ll be able to confront the issues head-on and solve your problems. Sometimes this card indicates an escape from danger, breaking bonds, or a lifting of restrictions. Be especially careful not to turn your feelings of anger against yourself. Use your energy in pursuit of a higher cause. 


Partnerships of all stripe are inherent to this card. Soulmate connections, romance, courtship, and passion that leads to marriage are all possibilities. Emotional balance, equanimity, and cordial encounters are available. Friendship and companionship are highlighted. It’s an ideal time to show appreciation for your friends and family and a good time to settle minor disputes and resolve past differences. Your heart chakra opens, you feel at one with the universe. You experience a deeper awareness of reality and harmony and connection to source. By uniting with another, you accomplish more than either o you could achieve alone.

CAPRICORN: Knight of Swords

The Knight of Swords charges forward, like Alexander the Great, conquering everything in his path. He is courageous and ready to overcome every obstacle in his way. Expect a whirlwind of social activity and a definite surge in your work. Go after your raise, promotion, a book contract, movie deal – whatever it is you want. You’ll find allies in unexpected places. Impatience works against you – listen to your heart, not just your head. Cultivate faith that what you need will be provided for you before you need it. Be careful what you wish for. 

AQUARIUS: Knight of Pentacles

The Knight of Pentacles isn’t afraid of hard work, and his adventures focus on practical matters like money and financial stability. Set financial goals and stick to a budget. Your finances are improving steadily but surely. You find your niche – or it finds you! You uncover a goldmine in a client or project, and you’re headed for professional distinction. There is the potential for a windfall when this Knight comes out to play – a winning lottery ticket, a significant book advance, or a profitable project. The big issues appear in your life all at once and trigger a search for answers. You don’t merely react, you deal with the problems and evolve. 

PISCES: Four of Pentacles

You want a strong financial base, and you’re willing to compromise your higher aspirations to attain it. Don’t be afraid of change, and guard against clinging to the status quo. Open yourself to new ideas. Loosen your Vulcan death grip on what is familiar: a job, material possessions, a relationship, or a particularly safe environment. You know that your fixed ideas of security and safety hold you back from fulfillment, but you’re too scared to change. You could be repeating old patterns in a new relationship out of a deep-rooted fear of abandonment. Find your inner comfort zone and use it as a starting point for chakra meditation. Act on the images and impulses you receive – they are coming from the deepest levels of your being.

Special Forecast

According to the CDC, cloth face coverings are recommended as a simple barrier to help prevent respiratory droplets from traveling into the air and onto other people when the person wearing the cloth face covering coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice. This is called source control. This recommendation is based on what we know about the role respiratory droplets play in the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, paired with emerging evidence from clinical and laboratory studies that shows cloth face coverings reduce the spray of droplets when worn over the nose and mouth. COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet), so the use of cloth face coverings is particularly important in settings where people are close to each other or where social distancing is difficult to maintain.

Week of June 29th

Aries: Justice

One cycle ends, and another begins. Contracts are made or broken. Legal matters resolve in your favor, any financial darkness you’ve been facing is illumined, a windfall shows up just in time to tide you over. Balance! Are you working too much and overeating, not getting enough rest or exercise? Allow yourself to flow with the cycles of nature to improve your health and well being. Walk in the woods, or by the beach under a hot sun. You benefit immeasurably by living in the now. You are between cycles, yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not yet here. Enjoy today.

Taurus: Seven of Swords

Don’t allow others to take advantage of you. State your convictions, and don’t be browbeaten into doing what you don’t want to do. When you’re negotiating a deal, play your cards close to the chest, and you’ll outsmart the opposition. Are you running from something – commitment, responsibility, hard work, love? You may be procrastinating, letting problems slip because you don’t want to deal with them. Sometimes we just have to face what has to be met. Take heart, this too shall pass.

Gemini: The Sun

You feel empowered because your goals seem brighter than they have ever been. Embrace your destiny and realize that you created it. By saying yes to opportunity, your life opens into new vistas. You love your work. Your productivity and creativity are recognized and appreciated. Someone new may capture your heart, or you and your significant other experience a resurrection of an earlier passion. Luck tags your heels, your earnings increase, your raise or loan comes through. You have survived the darkness, now follow the light.

Cancer: The Emperor

Something you desire is starting to appear in your life, even if you can’t see it yet. Your most significant strength is the power of your will. You view every obstacle as a challenge. Through visualizations and affirmations, you make your intention and desires clear, and the universe responds—the more focused the intent, the faster the manifestation. You feel a sense of peace about where you are and where you want to be. Carve out your personal spiritual space for an altar, a vision board, or just some extra time for yourself. Be alert for synchronicities.

Leo: Three of Wands

You’re poised on the threshold of success, and your past efforts are starting to pay off. You’ve reached a significant milestone, you’re on solid ground and have confidence concerning long-term plans. The change you’ve been waiting for is within sight. New orders arrive for your product or service; people who have heard about you via word of mouth come knocking at your door. Any loans you may have applied for are approved, and finances increase. The news is good. You possess the power to bring about your heart’s desire.

Virgo: Three of Pentacles

You’re moving up in your chosen career and building a foundation that will last far. Professional recognition puts you in line for a promotion. You may fine-tune a writing project, book, lecture, or presentation, but the basics are done. You will sell your project. Personal relationships mature, and you put past problems behind you as you move into a deeper level of loyalty and intimacy. You use your skills and abilities to create something beautiful and enduring.

Libra: Empress

Your life swells with abundance. Your ideas blossom and find the support they need because they speak to the hearts of others. Your openness and receptivity make you a good listener and an excellent counselor. Your home is warm and inviting and filled with good food. It is also your sanctuary, your sacred place. It’s a good time for investments; the check really is in the mail, and the raise you’ve been hoping for comes through. Financial obligations ease up. By embracing the practical aspects of everyday life, prosperity finds you. Nurture all that you are, so that you become all that you can be.

Scorpio: King of Swords

You are being put on notice: it’s time to cut away from old ideas and beliefs that have outlived their purpose. Be fair and logical when dealing with others, visualize the events resolving for the highest good of everyone involved. Though your mental prowess is powerful, listen to your intuition about a situation, too. Your link to your significant other or someone you’re dealing with is rooted in the intellectual curiosity that leads to a deeper emotional connection. Your sharp mind cuts right to the heart of any matter, which brings great benefit to you and others.

Sagittarius: The World

A feeling of completion, success, and fulfillment is here for you now. You’ve reached a deep understanding of the issues that concern you. You’ve begun to realize that everything in life starts within and radiates outward, that your most private beliefs create the reality that you live. Everything is available to you. It’s time to free yourself from restriction. Expand your horizons. You’re ready to reap your rewards and move on to a new phase. If you’ve been working on a project that seems like it will never end, be assured that the conclusion is near. By transcending the ordinary and balancing your connection to the physical and spiritual planes, you glimpse the more profound meaning and purpose of your life’s journey.

Capricorn: Queen of Pentacles

You rule your home and office with equal efficiency, a practical go-getter seeking tangible solutions. You come up with a business plan, strategy, or publicity campaign that your coworkers or employees can implement effectively. Your family looks to you for this same kind of guidance. Professionally, you build on past achievements and are recognized for them. You love what you do, but you’re happiest in your personal space, surrounded by books, music, animals, and plants, the private world you’ve created. Your Midas touch works so well, you don’t question it, you go with the flow. Your intuition and reason work beautifully together. Everything seems to be clicking into place.

Aquarius: Four of Cups

You have choices, but you may consider them to be without merit. Take a second look; something presented is better than you think. If you feel like the future seems bleak, check-in, and make sure that any depression hasn’t grown roots and become more than a passing mood. Don’t disregard opportunities for growth, renewed happiness, and satisfaction. You need a new source of income, but keep overlooking the obvious. Reconsider opportunities or investments that you’ve flat-out rejected. Things aren’t as bleak as they appear to be. Reevaluate your life and relationships to uncover possibilities that you may have overlooked.

Pisces: Ace of Pentacles

A fresh start in all areas having to do with career and finance. Huzzah! Material gain, prosperity, and success are at hand. Something new is emerging in your life. You begin a venture that brings positive financial changes down the road. The timing is right. Don’t be afraid to initiate a plan that seems a bit risky. The money you invest now comes back to you with interest. You find a long-sought solution to a troubling professional problem. A new job or career change is in store for you. Meditation helps ground you. You have the power to manifest your plans, ideas, and dreams.
