Now, onto your New Moon Tarotscopes!
For those of you unfamiliar, Tarotscopes are essentially the same thing as a horoscope, except with Tarot cards. It is important to note, however, that I am not taking any specific planetary transits or aspects into consideration, all of the information is based on the card I’ve pulled.
Feel free to read for your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs…. Hell, you could even read for your North Node, Mercury, or Venus placements if you like. As always, my philosophy is to take what works and leave the rest.
Happy reading and Happy New Moon!
Aries – Three of Wands
As with every New Moon, today is a chance to enter a new cycle, and that chance is given extra support this time around from the Three of Wands. This is a precipice card – one that asks you to decide what you’re ready to step out of, and choose something to step into next. While this is a new phase of your journey, it isn’t the beginning, and it’s certainly not the end. You’ve seen some shit, but there’s still a whole world that awaits you. This is a beautiful middle point where you have an opportunity to find a very unique synthesis within yourself. One that allows you to be both student and teacher at the same time. You can bring your experiences and knowledge from the past with you, while simultaneously being open to new encounters and information. The New Moon and the Three of Wands are coming together to ask you: where will you go next? Let your passions drive you.
Taurus – Ace of Swords
The New Moon is a phase that’s ripe with potential and new beginnings. So, too, is the Ace of Swords, specifically where the mental realm is concerned. There’s a very lively quality to this card – as though you can hear the ideas and thoughts buzzing through the air when it shows up. This Ace, like other Aces, is all about the potential of what’s to come. With this Ace, clarity of mind, precision in decision making, heightened abilities with communication (writing in particular), and a sharp mind overall are on offer. They may come through an epiphany that leads to a new way of thinking – like when lightning strikes and illuminates all that was once in the dark. Or, perhaps they come through a more dedicated focus to your thought process; a commitment to authentic self-expression. No matter how it comes about for you, the most important thing is to reach out and grab the “sword,” and integrate it into your life however you see fit.
Gemini – Ten of Cups
The picture-perfect setting in the Ten of Cups feels like more of a dream than a reality to most of us. An end goal we’re constantly striving towards that never quite comes. A blissful afternoon that seems always just out of reach. In the never-ending search for this Happily Ever After, we miss the possibilities of Happily Ever Now. We lose sight of all the beautiful moments that come our way, each and every day. They may not be the exact ones we imagined, but they’re still so worthy of our attention. This Ten is our invitation to both focus on the present and allow ourselves a shift in perspective. The rain on your wedding day? Perhaps it brought the beautiful rainbow that awed your guests and made for great photos. That traffic jam on your way home? Maybe it offered space to catch up with someone you hadn’t spoken to in too long. The point is to first recognize these “rainbow” moments as they come, and then enjoy them while they last. Who knows how long you have until one of those kids falls down, starts crying, and all havoc breaks loose again?
Cancer – Ace of Pentacles
Each New Moon brings with it the promise of a fresh beginning, and the same can be said for the Aces of the Tarot. Each of them holds the potential for great things to come, which can be manifested when we choose to take up their offer. With the Ace of Pentacles, that offer could be the start of a journey towards abundance. This journey won’t be all rainbows and roses – the Pentacles suit is about hard work, where we must stay grounded and focused on our goals – but the end result holds so much possibility. Consider the seed of a redwood tree, about how much potential radiates out from its small self, and how over time it will transform into something incredible. That kind of growth is the same energy residing in this Ace. The offering on an Ace isn’t always obvious, so you’ll want to pay close attention; be open and available to any seeds the universe might be offering. All you have to do then, is reach out and take them.
Leo – Three of Cups
This New Moon may be the perfect time to gather with some like-minded folks and welcome in this new cycle. The Three of Cups encourages us to spend time in the company of people we trust, those who we can be our truest selves around, and to engage in ritual and celebration. It’s an energy that invites us to establish our safe spaces, our covens, our circle of love and trust. Judging by the lush surroundings in this card, the raised glasses, and smiles on the figures’ faces, there is much joy and abundance to be found in coming together in this way. If you already have your people, your crew, plan some time to be with them and soon. Perhaps there is a pre-scheduled event – like the New Moon – which you can celebrate, or maybe you’ll just have to make something up. There’s nothing wrong with simply celebrating your friendship or life in general. If you’ve yet to find your people or you’ve been distant from them for whatever reason, this may be your sign to start searching earnestly or to reconnect if possible. No need to put undue pressure on yourself; the Three of Cups is all about joy and connection, so go about that in whatever way feels the safest and most enjoyable to you.
Virgo – Strength
Strength, as viewed through the lens of society, is often conflated with the word tough. It’s seen as something that makes us hard, almost impenetrable – because we’re tough, we don’t get hurt. Because we’re strong, we don’t have emotion. But in the Tarot, the Strength card offers us a different perspective. Strength is actually about being vulnerable and compassionate. It’s about facing our fears with an open mind and an open heart. Strength teaches us how to make allies out of our fears by treating them gently, with patience, and attempting to see them in a different light. This card always makes me think of the stray dog who growls when a stranger walks by. Their guard is up, and probably for good reason. But instead of approaching them with fear and hesitation, we should show them empathy and composure. We should show them that warmth and love do exist; that safety is possible. It takes a whole lot of courage for the human to approach such a dog, and for the dog to let down its walls. But imagine the beauty of what can happen if we try.
Libra – Knight of Swords
The hustle is real and, sometimes, it can’t be put on pause. The Knight of Swords may not be the most fun energy in the Tarot but it is one of the fastest, and it usually leaves as fast as it came. Keep that in mind as you make your way through the possible hectic nature of life over the next little while. This energy is happening for you, not to you. It’s here to help you get through whatever it is that needs getting through. It’s the kind of energy that can help you initiate new projects with ease, or complete the unfinished ones so you can move on to the next thing. This Knight isn’t exactly worried about the small details, so you can worry about that later. Instead, use this incoming force to propel forward, to gather momentum swiftly, and launch into whatever aspect of your life has needed the boost. Be aware of your body during this time, though, as this certainly isn’t an invitation to forget about proper sleep and hydration. You may just have to wait a bit for that 30-minute essential oil bath. But it’s going to be a much better bath when you get to enjoy it after all the hard work you put in.
Scorpio – Seven of Cups
Have you ever experienced the sensation of feeling called to several different paths at once? Where you want to do This, That, AND the Other? This is the energy within the Seven of Cups, a card that speaks to wanting to do ALL the things; to exploring ALL the possible options. At its worst it can feel a little manic and disorienting, so the invitation here is to attempt a softening of that buzzy energy. This can be done through not forcing yourself to make any decisions about which path to take, but to simply allow yourself to FEEL into each of the options laid out before you. Take some time to dream and imagine what each of the possibilities might bring your way. How might each outcome impact your emotional wellbeing? This Seven is all about getting an internal emotional read on all of this external stimuli, before making any moves. This New Moon may be the ideal time for some meditation and journaling, or at least some dedicated quiet time to get deeply in touch with how you’re feeling about all of the things you’ve been feeling called to do.
Sagittarius – Justice
When Justice appears, it typically means there’s a bigger picture that needs your attention right now. There’s a truth, a reality to a situation that needs discovering and exploring. True justice, true change can only come about when we acknowledge what is happening around us. There may be something that’s going on right under our nose, in fact, and we haven’t even realized it. Only once we’ve been able to recognize the reality of a situation, can we begin to change it. If we’re unable to see how something affects all sides, how it brings balance or imbalance to all that are involved, we will remain unable to move forward in alignment. If there’s a decision that needs to be made, be sure you’re making it with all the facts in mind. Every decision we make has some kind of consequence on the world. The energy we put out into the universe creates ripple effects, whether large or small. Justice is an invitation to find our center in even the most unjust situations, so that we may begin the process of shifting reality and bringing about true evolution wherever we can. It’s a big ask, but the card’s very existence means we’re capable of it.
Capricorn – The Chariot
The Chariot is a call to action, but it’s less a card of where you’re going, than how you’re going to get there. You’ve been making a lot of strides in your personal development and it’s possible your entire worldview may have experienced some kind of shift. Usually, when The Chariot appears, it means we’re standing at some kind of precipice, we’re on the verge of something big, the possibilities feel endless, and all we have to do is determine how we’ll move forward. We’re being asked to decide if we have all the right tools we need – is our chariot outfitted with all the right tools, is it equipped properly to handle whatever the future brings? Of course, there’s no way of ever knowing this for sure. The Chariot only asks that we consider the question deeply enough to feel confident that we are indeed ready to move forward. If we’re not, it’s time to explore why that hesitance is appearing. What parts of you still need shedding? What parts need nurturing? What steps need to be taken in order to make sure your chariot is fully operational and ready to take you into the next phase of life?
Aquarius – Page of Wands
The Page of Wands is an invitation to honour all that you’re passionate about, by bringing a mature and grounded energy to the actions you take towards those passions. It’s an opportunity to expand while staying grounded. A call to let go of impulsivity for the time being, in order to ensure the way you’re moving through the world is in highest and best for everyone – including yourself. Take a beat to step back and assess the trajectory of your life’s passions and dreams. This is a chance to take a breath, find your center, and tend to the flame you’ve already built. You may be ready for life’s challenges on a theoretical level, but this is your chance to prepare for them in tangible ways, too. Keep smiling, keep tending to your flame, but consider the future while doing so. Living in the moment, and being open to jumping on the opportunities that come your way is important, but right now it’s all about the bigger picture. What steps do you need to take in order to keep your flame steady and blazing for years to come?
Pisces – The Star
Deep healing is The Star’s central offering. It’s a card that signals to us that we are in need of time to regenerate. We need to cry, clear, and cleanse what we’ve been going through in order to move onto the next stage. It’s an energy that encourages you to take time for activities like spending time in nature – dig your bare feet into the earth, go for a swim in a natural body of water, let the sun shine down on your face, allow the rain to wash your skin, feel the breeze move through your hair. Be sweet and gentle to yourself. Do the things that bring you peace and tranquillity. No single one of these activities truly “count” as doing the work of The Star; it’s all of them and more, over a long period of time. The Star is the cooling rain that follows a blazing fire. It’s like Aloe Vera on a sunburn, but times a thousand. It’s the chance to rewire your nervous system, to reevaluate what’s important to you, and to replenish your very Soul. More than that, The Star has a strong undercurrent of hope vibrating through it. The hope that better days are on the horizon because of the healing you’re investing in now.
