|Go Red For Women @ the American Heart Association!|
Wow… So here we are finishing out the first month of the new year! I swear I’ve been paying attention more to the firsts going on. Maybe because we survived the 2012 apocalypse. LOL! But it could just be because I have an 18 month old and 6 month old running the household a little more these days, so it’s ALL about “firsts”! And this is one reason why I went with the graphic that I did too.
I could have put the focus more on the fact that Jupiter is turning direct or that Imbolc is coming up, but I’m pretty sure I’ll manage to get posts in for it. At least that’s what I’m hoping to manage to finish up! Anyways, I wanted to bring more attention to the dangers of heart disease. Being in my 30’s, I’m fast approaching that time where I’ll be joining ranks of yearly mammograms, yea. Actually I was told I should start doing it next year. But unfortunately, I lost one grandmother to breast cancer and the other to heart disease so I’m already at risk. If you’re on my facebook, you might have noticed a few weeks back that I mentioned a friend of mine has actually survived a heart attack… and she’s younger than me! So that definitely was a wake-up call. I finally decided to give up smoking and have now made it 2 weeks of being smoke free! YEA! And I’m wanting other women to be aware of the risk they may be putting themselves at. So please take a look at the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women and learn how you can reduce your risk!! This will be the first time I wear red on Feb 1st; for my friend, for my grandmother, and for my own health!
Ok, that’s my little rant! And now it’s time for some fun Tarotscopes!
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)- With your ruling planet Mars entering Pisces and your 12th house of enlightenment on Friday, you can expect to feel a pull during the week. Usually you have no problems asserting yourself, but your feelings of self-doubt are going to end up creeping in and might leave you feeling like you’re not being honest with what is truly going to make you happy. Allow yourself to take some time to figure things out. You don’t need to force yourself to make a decision with things and try not to let others make decisions for you, although it might be easier to let that happen!
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)- If you’ve been ready for things to get better in your career, once your ruling planet Venus, that also rules money, moves into your 10th house of career on Friday, things will finally start to look up! There may also be some communication that comes from a woman bringing some good news for you or a woman you are close with will be able to offer some advice about the direction you should take. This is going to be a great week to work on some creativity as well in some capacity. Being able to take pride in your talent will give you a boost in your self-esteem!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)- This week you’ll need to be careful of how you present your thoughts and communicate with others with your ruling planet Mercury in your 9th house of philosophy! It might come out the wrong way and you might be feeling like no one understands you! And you could be alienating yourself by having too much “authority”. Try not to close yourself off to the opinions that others might have, you could learn something in a way you hadn’t considered before. You may also need to be somewhat suspicious of others intentions if you feel you’re being led astray. You need to know who you can trust!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)- Emotionally you’re feeling the “wane” after Saturday’s Full Moon and could be asking yourself how much is TOO much! You’ll need to really take a look at what you’re wanting to achieve and whether or not you’ll be able to handle the demands. If you’re trying to make things easier for others, you might just be demanding too much of yourself. Just make sure that you don’t give up because somewhere with what you’re trying to accomplish, IS your true desire! Right now it’s just a balancing act of trying to figure out work with play. You can’t always take things in life too seriously!
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)- The weekend’s Full Moon in your sign left you feeling that you could have it all! And the feelings continue as the Sun is currently in your 7th house of balance! However, you are going to need to figure out where to start first. You can’t have too many irons in the fire or you’ll just end up burning out this positive energy! Take this time to decide what will bring you the best results. You’ll also be feeling that you’re able to get a lot closer to others at this time as well. Be thankful for those that really understand and stick by you through thick and thin!
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)- Things are starting to feel a little more stable! And with the Sun and your ruling planet Mercury in your 6th house of routines, you’ve been able to get things in line. But that doesn’t mean you’re able to rest on your laurels just yet. There’s still a lot to accomplish and if you take a break now, you might be starting over again. You can see the clearing through the forest, you just need to keep going! You might also be receiving some surprising news this week or someone you haven’t heard from in a while might be coming back into your life.
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)- You’ll be feeling your inspiration flowing this week as the Sun is already shining through your 5th house of creativity and your ruling planet Venus joins the party on Friday! You might not know where you’re going, but you also don’t really care right now! As long as you’re having a good time is all that matters. The past was a learning experience and you’ll be able to apply what was relevant, but the negativity that was around is now going to stay there and you’re able to move forward with a lot more optimism. Enjoy your enthusiasm for life and share it with others!
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 22)- You’ll need to keep with the progress you’re making, even if it’s been a little more frustrating than you anticipated! The changes you’ve been working towards will soon be realized, it’s just going to take some time. You don’t need to feel as though things are failing, your courage will help you see things through. Others may want to convince you otherwise though. No matter what happens to come your way this week, you’ll be able to take things in stride and come to the best conclusion to get what you need to succeed! Sometimes you’re more than happy to take on a challenge!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)- With your ruling planet Jupiter turning direct this week, expect things to be changing within your relationships! This could be good or bad depending on how you want to look at it! Even if things do come to the forefront that you hadn’t wanted to admit to, now is the time to clear the air. Being able to be honest has usually never been a problem for you, but this time it could be tough to find the words you want and need to say. It’s true that others around you will only be as happy as you are. It’s time to close the door on the past!
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)- Take this energy this week and run with it! With your ruling planet Saturn in your 11th house of hopes and dreams and the Sun in your 2nd house of self-worth, you might just be feeling like things have finally turned a new leaf! You’re realizing that sometimes you just have to go with the flow and be adaptable to changing situations, even if you can’t see the rainbow after the rain! This comes with a deeper feeling of gratitude for your struggles as well. When Venus joins your 2nd house on Friday, treat yourself to something special! You’ve definitely deserved it with all the hard work you’ve been doing!
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)- Even with so many planets in your sign right now, this week you might be feeling you’re being forced to deal with things you might not be ready for! At this time it won’t be what you can achieve for others or what you can do on your own, but being open to accepting others to come into your life and assisting you more. Emotionally you’re able to understand things on a grander scale, but it can be tough to understand your own needs. It’s ok to be a little indulgent at times! Let go of your doubts and allow yourself to truly be free!
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 18)- Things this week might be a little rough emotionally and you might need to find some hope! Even if it’s the slightest bit. And really it could be that you’re just focused on the negative side of things! There’s always a reason these things happen. Allow others to lend you a shoulder or an ear! Keeping the faith that you are doing what you can and limiting any anxiety you have will be essential this week. If others can’t understand where you’re coming from, try not to be irritated by it. Give yourself permission to take a break. It’ll all come together when it needs to!
I hope you enjoyed this week’s Tarotscopes, even if they might not have been the best news for you! And, as always if you’d like a reading, I can take a look at things for you more in depth! Feel free to send me a message at facebook or my email!
Many Blessings and have a great week everyone!
