Welcome to February and the February 2018 Tarotscope! I hope that your year is off to a flying start.
Being the 2nd month of the year I often look at the twos in tarot. In the major arcana this would be The High Priestess and even Justice. Notice that these cards, along with the 2s in the minor arcana can often represent choices, forks in the road, balance and duality.
We often get off to a great start in January but as our plans start to unfold we can find ourselves having to make decisions about where we go next. This is a really good month to pick a route and commit. The danger is that you get stuck in decision making mode and don’t take action.
Hopefully this monthly tarotscope will be really useful for you to help you commit to your ongoing plan.
If you haven’t done so yet I would recommend that you download my FREE ebook which has a detailed tarotscope for the first 6 months of the year.
March 21 – April 19
King of Pentacles
It’s time to get serious about your finances. The King of Pentacles is very stable and he is absolutely ‘the boss’. This is a great time to set your financial goals for the year. Perhaps you need to seek advice from a professional. There could be a message here that it’s time to ‘boss up’ in your own business or life. This is your time to rise up and take responsibility for your own career, finances etc. It could be a very favourable month for you. It won’t necessarily be the most exciting month but you will be in a stronger position for the rest of the year if you can take this time to focus on the material!
April 20 – May 20
Queen of Cups (reversed)
You need to make sure that you are following your intuition. There could be a situation unfolding around you and you know in your heart of hearts that it’s going in the wrong direction. You owe it to yourself to speak up to get things back on track. There is potential that others may try to take advantage of your kind nature this month. Again, you need to tune in as you will know who has your best interests at heart. It could actually be a very good month for your but you need to rely on your ‘inner guide’ to keep you on the right track and help you turn that card upright.
May 21 – June 20
Things are looking great this month. You are in your flow and everything is running smoothly. It’s a really good time to sit back and let the Universe work its magic. You have the ability to take on any challenge this month but you have to be careful not to push too hard. The road is clear for you and everything is working in your favour. Being around nature will help ground you and help inspire you this month. This is a very maternal and fertile card. You could find yourself building a closer relationship with your mother or children. Enjoy this time – you deserve it.
June 21 – July 22
Five of Pentacles (reversed)
Things are looking up! You may have been through some rough times but there is hope on the horizon. Your financial difficulties should be coming to an end and help is closer at hand than you think. If anything you will have grown from the experience and this could even have brought you closer to those around you. There is a reminder here that we need to seek out the lessons from both the good and the bad that happens in our life. There is always a silver lining to be found and the good times will also follow the bad. Life is cyclical so the sun will always eventually shine, even on the darkest night.
July 23 – August 22
9 of Pentacles
This is your month! Everything is aligned and you are going to be given the opportunity to do things on your own terms. The 9 of Pentacles character is totally in control or the finances and living a life that she wants to live. This would suggest that you have the opportunity to make money doing something you love. There is a sense of freedom associated with this card. Don’t make money your goal this month. Just throw yourself into your passion and you could be surprised where this leads you. It’s definitely an action month but make sure that it is all on your terms and you could have a fantastic month.
August 23 – September 22
Knight of Wands
It’s all about action this month. Let that fire rise in your belly, get out there and fight for what you believe in. You will be feeling very energised this month and there is a will and passion that you may not have felt for some time. We are well and truly into the new year and it’s now time to make something happen. It’s always good to have a plan as to where you are heading but sometimes you just need to take the first step and you could be amazed at where you end up. It’s important to listen to others. You could have a tendency to be quite pig-headed and closed off to new ideas. If you can find that balance between listening and taking action there will be no stopping you.
September 23 – October 22
Four of Pentacles (reversed)
You could feel that you are losing your grip when it comes to finances or the material parts of life. Maybe you feel threatened in your job or perhaps you are just worried that your financial situation is not as stable as you would hope. You are actually worrying unnecessarily. You may have been overprotective, which has led you to feel quite stuck. Just go with it and know that you will be able to figure things out. I don’t foresee any financial disasters but these bumps in the road may leave you feeling a little bit spooked. It’s fine to let loose once in a while and treat yourself. Don’t make money your god.
October 23 – November 21
Knight of Pentacles (reversed)
The Knight of Pentacles likes to take things very slow. He is a planner and loves to do his due diligence before jumping into anything new. He is actually very smart and usually ends up winning as he makes efficient and well-considered decisions. This reversed card is showing that you need to get moving. The danger of being super-cautious is that you can get stuck. You can see so many options ahead of your that you end up being paralysed by fear of where you could end up. He is a bit like a top chess player who can see every possibility. However, the clock is ticking and you will have to make your move soon. The time for planning is over. Which road are you going to take?
November 22 – December 21
6 of Wands
There is a reason to celebrate. You have done the hard work and you are now being rewarded for your action. Just remember that people are looking to you for leadership so it’s time to step up. You may feel that you are not worthy and that you don’t deserve to be in this position but you are there for a reason. It’s a great month to get amongst your community and celebrate together. Hold your head high and let your inner passion inspire others. It’s a good time to work as a team and bring others along on that journey with you.
December 22 – January 19
9 of Wands (reversed)
It’s time to let your guard down and be a bit a bit vulnerable. Yes, you have been through a lot and you potentially have some battle-scars but that doesn’t mean you should shut yourself off. You are on the brink of change and your wounds are definitely healing. It’s time to start looking to the future rather than at the past. Just because something happened to you in the past doesn’t mean it will happen again. It’s a great month to rediscover your passion. What is your gut telling you to do? Where can you find the inspiration that ignites that fire within your belly? What can you do the brings your zest for life back again?
January 20 – February 18
7 of Swords (reversed)
Somebody is going to be accused of cheating or deceit but be careful that you have all the facts before making any judgments. You may feel that somebody has done you wrong but it looks like they could have been set up or their motives were not entirely bad. There can also be a sense of cutting your losses with this card. Maybe you are trying to do too much as once and you have to be prepared to let some things go. There is a real sense of holding on and a reluctance to let go but you will feel much better if you can create some space in your life. You are heading to smoother times but there may be some unnecessary turmoil this month.
February 19 – March 20
8 of Swords (reversed)
Finally, you are going to get on track. You have been feeling a bit lost and potentially even trapped. The great news is that the opposition and even negative thoughts are going to dissipate one at a time and leave you with a clear path forward. You still have a responsibility to remove that blindfold and the ties around you. The tools are all there and at your disposal but you just need to believe in yourself. It’s time to focus on the big picture and start making a plan. Where do you want to head next? What’s currently standing in your way? What tools can you use to help you reach your goal? Focus on that end goal and work backward. You will realise that there are not as many obstacles as you once thought. My goal setting guide may help you – www.tarotavenue.com/goals.
Have a great month. xox
