Tarot for Week of 8/14-20: The Cauldron Bubbles + Mercury Retrograde! How to Navigate the Week(s) Ahead!

Ahead of the big Solar Eclipse next week we have Mercury Retrograde stirring the pot. World events will grab headlines thanks to the Outer Planets in the Mix and it’s a snapshot of what’s going on inside you. The seismic shifts may leave you a little stunned or nervous yet they are nothing you can’t handle with a little support. The question is who really makes the decisions in your life?

While we believe we decide for ourselves, it’s too often true that what shapes those are a mix of what you learned in early childhood and all the experiences with other people you’ve had since. That old boss, best friend or influential romance all combine to make a framework of what you act on now. How much of it is yours, how much of it resonates with you now, and do you feel good about your decisions? Is there anyplace you feel you ‘have to’ do something.

These are the places this week to notice. You can do it willingly or else the Universe may drag you there. It is up for review to help you choose your life from a more solid-centered Truth. Thanks to a little help from Mercury Retrograde joining the Solar eclipse point (with several other planets retrograde too) you get to see who’s in the driver seat of your life. What you believe dictates your actions, your actions create your world.

This week wants to help put you back in the driver’s seat rather than reacting to someone else’s story. Some of the ‘aha moments’ will thrill you and some of them will frustrate you, because status quo is such an easy place to exist. But you can have so much more life in your life with a little courage to face the uncomfortable places that comes with change. The cards and the Stars want to help. Here’s the week ahead.

Do you want your own personalized eclipse report to see exactly where your road hazards are? Is it your relationships, how you earn money, or maybe your health that is under construction? Find out how you can make the most of these challenges with your own audio recording using your Astrology to navigate the bumps. Get yours HERE.

P.S. If you are receiving this and you don’t normally get my weekly updates, it’s because this week was so important I wanted everyone to have good guidance to weather the bumps for the days ahead. So enjoy and if you want this delivered to you instead of checking back, you can get that for less than $.50 a week. Get yours here

Tarot Card for the week on 8/14- 8/20: Green Man



This card is the Emperor in traditional Tarot, which stands for reason, logic, control. It’s one of the symbols for the Patriarchy. Originally the Patriarchy was the masculine protective urge with noble intentions and aims. Unfortunately, it’s gotten a bad reputation as a bully and authority for authority’s sake because of how it’s being applied these days. This week, ahead of the eclipse in a constellation which signals the Death of the King, take a good look where outside authorities that felt cruel, heavy-handed or punishing still influence your decisions. It’s time to lay the bully down with love. You can’t fight anger with greater anger, rage is what feeds the tyrant.
Instead, you have to bring compassion for the fear behind the punishing thoughts or beliefs that drove another to react that way. Then share some of that compassion with yourself for the places in you that felt bullied or belittled into acting in a way that runs counter to your true nature. This week just let this process be enough. Some wounds take a while to heal and this is a deep one culturally. Trust the inner authority in you, one that preceded any outside rules and practice finding that place in you that knows.

Tarot for day 1:
Two of Bows



This two invites you to share ideas and discussions with those around you. Trust your instincts as to whom and chat them up. Also pay attention to your reactions and words that come out of your mouth. With Moon square Mars and adjustment between what you feel and what you do or say is required. But you have to see it, feel it, before you know what’s off. So in communication today, notice where impatience comes up, frustration or feelings that make you want to contract. Don’t worry, we have some help from Venus to smooth things out so any tension is liable to disappear in short order. When you have time this evening to reflect see where your buttons get pushed and see what that has to offer you about what choices do you have to adjust so you connect with what makes you feel more alive, more powerful and more in charge of you. You set the stage for the clearing this week when you interact and observe yourself.

Take Action:
Talk to people today, those who know you well and strangers. Just be in conversation so you can observe YOU.

Good luck this week!
