December 2016 – Tarotscope

In Monthly Tarotscope, Uncategorizedby David Harvey2 Comments

It’s that time of the month again folks, tarotscope time, where we have a look and see what’s in store for the month ahead.  I like to draw one card for each star sign to get a flavour of what the next month will be like for you.

We are now firmly into December, the last month of the year! December being a 12 is actually a 3 in numerology. 3’s represent growth and expansion. It could be a good time to reflect on the year that has gone and see what we can learn and take into the next year. Major Arcana cards that would represent a 3 would be The Empress, The Hanged Man and The World. Quite appropriate that we kind of have a beginning, middle and end of a chapter. I always feel that there is an opportunity for renewal heading into a new year.

I hope that this year has been great for you and that you have many great things to reflect on.

Have you checked out our range of zodiac candles yet?  They do make excellent Christmas gifts.  You can see the full range here.


Now let’s see what’s in store for December…..


March 21 – April 19

photo-27-08-2016-18-14-33Take some time out to celebrate your successes from the year.  You have had a big year and have been making a lot of changes over the last few months.  This could well be the month that you just pause for a second and appreciate how far you have come.  You actually have a lot of respect from those around you so don’t be afraid to reach out to your community and share your achievements.  You are certainly leaving the year on a high and it looks like you are ready to go charging into the next year with your head held high.  Just be sure to take time out to recharge before you start again.  There is a fire in your belly that you maybe haven’t felt for a while and there is an inner knowing that you are doing the right thing and heading along the right track.


April 20 – May 20
King of Cupsphoto-27-08-2016-18-11-44

This is a good time to take the lead and show your compassion for others.  The King of Cups makes a great teacher or counsellor.  He always sees the best in others and leads the way while wearing his heart on his sleeve.  He is not afraid to express his emotions and is a great support to those around him.  It could be that you need to channel your inner King of Cups or maybe this month will see a King of Cups type personality enter your life.  If you feel that you need some help right now don’t be afraid to reach out to this type of person.  They will lead you through the tough times and be sure to guide you in the right direction.


May 21 – June 20
3 of Swords  (reversed)

3 of Swords

3 of Swords

Things are going to get better for you.  I feel that my Geminis have had a rough few months!  The great news is that those clouds are about to part and the sun is about to shine again.  The swords are slowly falling out of that damaged heart, which will make way for some healing.  I’m not saying that the pain is over but you are nearly there.  You could well be left with some scar tissue but the important thing is that you have learned something from this experience.  Being a 3 shows that you will be stronger from what you have been through and it’s part of your growth journey.  Try to stay positive and know that going into the next year your heart will be healed and you will be ready to give or accept love in the new year.  It’s definitely a bit of a transition type of month for you but change always brings opportunity.


June 21 – July 22

photo-27-08-2016-18-13-06This is a card about endings.  It’s not as scary as it looks as every ending brings a new beginning.  I feel that you will be reflecting on your year and you will figure out what is not working for you.  It’s time to cut the toxicity out of your life and put an end to it once and for all.  Maybe you are hanging on to a relationship that is not going anywhere, maybe you are in a friendship that is very one-sided.  Whatever it is, this is the month to clear out the old and get ready to move into the new year with a clean slate.  There could be some pain involved but if you notice the sun is coming up in the background so just be sure to focus on that horizon and be confident that you are making the right decision for you.


July 23 – August 22
7 of Cups (reversed)

photo-27-08-2016-18-10-51Leo, Leo, Leo – we just don’t know where to turn.  (I’m also a Leo).  We have been planting the seed of opportunity and it seems that many shoots have grown.  We now need to focus and work out which shoot is going to be the strongest.  There are many opportunities available to you but you need to be careful not to try to do everything at once.  This could be with regards to work, friendships, relationship etc.  An example would be having a really big circle of friends that you can’t fully commit to.  Maybe it’s better to have a smaller circle where you can spend quality time.  It could be that you are just not focused in terms of what you want from life.  It’s a good time for goal setting and getting a clear plan of action as to what you want to do over the next year.  Check out my goal setting guide here.


August 23 – September 22

So this month it’s finally about growth for you.  Another 3 card coming up – very apt.  You have been doing a lot of soul-searching and it seems that it’s working for you.  It’s time to get your foundations in place so you can head into the new year and continue to build and grow.  It’s important that you work in a team and ask for help when you need it.  If you are planning a project be sure to seek the help of professionals as they will work very well with you.  Pentacles represent work, finances etc.  It seems that you have a really clear focus and know what you want.  You are putting all the building blocks in place to set yourself up for a very successful and rewarding year next year.


September 23 – October 22
9 of Swords (reversed)

photo-27-08-2016-18-12-59It looks to me that you have been getting quite stressed and anxious.  You have been letting things get on top of you and this could have been causing sleepless nights.  You need to know that this is about to pass.  The night is always darkest just before the dawn and the sun is about to rise.  With any form or anxiety, it always passes, even though it may not feel like that when you are in the midst of it.  Maybe there has been some illness or maybe you have just been worrying but things are about to change.  Just be patient and try to rest.  It’s a good month for restoration and recuperation.  Try to enjoy the holiday and have the confidence that you are coming to an end of this cycle.  9s represent being on the cusp of change and this is strengthened by the fact that the card is reversed.


October 23 – November 21
The World (reversed)

photo-27-08-2016-18-08-01-1You have had major arcana cards for the last few months, which shows that you are having some major life changes.  However, there is some unfinished business.  You were charging ahead with The Chariot last month but you may have missed some detail along the way.  The World shows the ending of a chapter.  You are ready to move on and start a new adventure but with the card being reversed it shows that you are not quite there yet.  Just take time to reflect and be sure that you have taken care of all the details before you close this particular chapter.  You have potential to get there quite quickly and all you have to do is draw on the resources that are available to you.  If you can tie up the loose ends you will be ready for a new beginning heading into the new year.  There is an air of optimism around you at the moment.


November 22 – December 21
King of Wands

photo-27-08-2016-18-15-35It’s time to take the lead in your life.  The King of Wands is somebody who leads with courage and passion.  He can be stern but is very well respected and always fights for what he believes in.  The flip side is that he can be quite controlling and unbending.  Be sure to listen to others people’s point of view but also know that you can’t do everything by committee.  This could be calling on your to channel your inner King of Wands and take the lead a bit more in your community or it could be that you will be facing this type of personality this month.  Maybe it’s an inspiring boss or maybe there is a new love interest entering your life who matches the criteria.  There is definitely something regal and majestic about this king so don’t be afraid to get out there and show the world what you can do when you put your mind to it.


December 22 – January 19

photo-27-08-2016-18-15-04Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it!  You are trudging through thinking that you can do everything on your own but you are nearing the point of exhaustion.  The good news is that being a 10 is shows that you are nearing the end of this particular struggle.  However, you want to be sure that it ends on your terms.  Perhaps you are trying to do too much at once or maybe you are being stubborn and not asking for help when you should.  You are extremely passionate and hard-working, which will be rewarded, but you are no use to anybody if you are incapacitated through doing too much.  Follow your passion but prioritize and ask for help when you really need it.


January 20 – February 18
Page of Pentacles (reversed)

Page of Pentacles - Rider WaiteYou are ready to take on something new but you don’t quite know where to plant the seed.  This card makes me think of somebody who knows they want to go to college but they just can’t decide which course to choose.  You have that lovely seed of opportunity in your hand but you just need to take the time to survey the land and work out the most fertile ground.  Find a bit of focus and you will be on to a winner.  Don’t spend too long planning or you will end up missing out of this opportunity.  It may be a good idea to do some goal setting so you get a clear idea of where you are headed and what steps you need to take to get there.  Check out my goal setting guide here.


February 19 – March 20
Strength (reversed)

photo-27-08-2016-18-06-13-1It’s time to face your fears.  You actually have all the power within to face your demons and overcome your obstacles but all that is missing is your self-belief.  It could be that you need to make friends with your enemies or whatever is standing in your way.  There are some major life lessons to be learned here and when you find that courage to really get on top on your fears you will find that your life will change for ever.  Just trust that you have all the power and go for it.  Things are never as scary as they seem and once to start to take the first steps towards moving on the path kind of reveals itself.  The universe has your back – you just need to channel that inner warrior and muster your strength.


Have a great month. xox
