Tarotscopes: Winter Solstice 2019

It is the darkest day for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, a darkness I have felt more intensely this North of 60. It is also a time for great magic! In the void, seeds are germinating. We're reflective of all that we've endured and accomplished in 2019. This is the time to see the light in the shadows. Something big wants to break through.

Unlike our usual monthly Tarotscopes, this reading will reveal a new energy that is stirring beneath the surface. What is it that wants to come to life? Find your Sun or Rising Sign below to find out.

March 21 - April 19

The Moon

You must lead the way Aries, be the light for others who are lost in the dark. The Moon speaks of illusions, the Shadow, fears or the loss of impulse control under the spell of strange forces. You've been there, done that, haven't you? How can you embrace the comfort of knowing your way through the unknown? How can you demonstrate and lead others out of the woods? This is your path unfolding, a major shift in your life towards deep healing.

Conflict is arising, agitation and uncertainty. It is the energy the seed needs to burst through the ground in the spring. Your path may feel unclear, your energy scattered. That is because there's a lot of change and transformation going on around you. You find your centre in all obstacles by staying out of displays of ego, dominance and control. Court the virtue of Justice - do the right thing in all situations - and embody the Stag as spirit animal medicine. Stick to your principles and do not be pulled into the shifting of wills happening around you. There's no need to battle when you do what's right - instead of struggling to prove you're right. See the difference?

May 21 - June 20

The Lovers

This is your symbol Gemini, the Twins in perfect harmony. It is embracing both sides of the coin, standing at the crossroads and needing to make a choice to walk the path that lights your heart. The stirring within you is a major shift towards doing what you love, choosing the life that is divinely orchestrated for you, instead of the one that seems certain, secure and well approved of. You are called to shake off the shackles of what others think of you in order to purse your Big Dream. Are you ready?

June 21 - July 22

The sorrow of your heart wants to be released, transmuted and transformed. This is a gift of creating more space for deeper feelings. There is a strong connection here to a younger female, this could be a lost relationship or your inner child that wants to spring forward into a new era of softness, vulnerability and tenderness. Grief changes you when you embrace her. Whatever you had to leave behind or walk away from, know it was the right thing to do. Any injustice you've suffered, it will be corrected through the powerful presence of love. Trust.

July 23 - August 22

The Son of Cups

Romance is blossoming for you now with strong unfolding energies of Motherhood (birth/creativity), building foundations (marriage, home) and Inner Strength, as you're on fire with your aligned purpose. You're learning to fall in love with Life itself. Turn up your "razzle dazzle" and attract the abundance that you deserve. Take your place as a divine messenger of the most powerful transformative energy of all the galaxies. Embody love. Give love. Receive Love.

August 23 - September 22


You are developing your virtues, spiritually awakening and raising your consciousness around correct action, karma and holding space for the Truth. Often when Justice comes to us, it's an opportunity for us to think of our boundaries, where we have laid them down in order to play pretend or feel comfortable. Where we've allowed ourselves to be taken advantage of in order for approval, to feel needed, or to be in control. You are seeing these themes clearly in your life, in your actions and in those of others. What else is your life showing you about Justice? What is playing out for you right now?

September 23 - October 22

Inspiration strikes! A grand idea, project or creative plan wants to be born, but you have been struggling with your fears and anxiety on what this new path could mean for you. In order for you to master your potential, a part of you has to die,
