It’s the 15th week of the year and the card of the week is the Tower. The Tower appears just before a big shake up. It’s a card that strikes and illuminates. I’ve seen the Tower manifest as natural disasters, death, breakups but also as sudden realizations that are abrubt but life changing. This card usually shows up a few days before something big happens, but since this is a card for an entire week, I think that it’s predicting something big that you need to prepare for that will happen a within month. It also makes sense that it appears because Mercury enters its pre-shadow period on 4/14/16 and will station retrograde on 4/25/16. He will station direct again on 5/22/16. This Mercury Retrograde takes place in Taurus and will involve material matters. Mars and Pluto Retrograde will also come into play cautioning you to slow down and plan instead of act in order to achieve what you’re after.
Mantra: Always prepared!

Sunday 4/10/16 Ace of Cups
Moon in Gemini
The Ace of Cups is a card of overflowing emotions. It is a card that appears when you are called to speak from the heart in name of light, love and truth. Moon sextile Venus at 8:58 AM PST brings love, happiness and indulgence to your morning. Moon opposition Mars at 1:06 PM PST may leave you feeling like you want to explode. Accept these feelings and pour love on them to cool the fire. Moon square Neptune at 4:59 PM PST may find those intense Mars influenced feelings turning to sensitivity. Make sure you remember to separate your feelings from reality. Moon square Jupiter at 10:44 PM PST will lighten the mood again but beware of your ego. Egotistical behavior is not good when you’re trying to process your feelings because it gets in the way of discovering the areas of your life that need growth and attention. The Moon is in the duality based sign of Gemini, encouraging you to give up the struggle, rock with the mood swings and accept your emotions for what they are. The number of the day is 5. Although you may need to work through some feelings today, you will overcome them and they will help you understand why you’re standing where you are in this perception of reality.
Mantra: If we everyone were completely honest, the world would be a better place.
Monday 4/11/16 Lovers
Moon in Pisces
Moon Void of Course 11:57 AM PST
The Lovers is a beautiful card that is not only about the nature of the mystery of love, sex and it’s connection to the Divine but also about the power of your will. When this card appears, it signals a deep connection with another person on a physical, mental or spiritual level that requires you to act on your free will. These situations could be a result of soul contracts and spiritual marriage. And in doing so, you accept the path that you will walk from there and any consequences that come along with it. Moon opposition Saturn at 1:36 AM PST could leave you feeling alone in the darkness of the night. It may feel heavy, but know that the sunrise is coming soon. Moon sextile Uranus at 8:58 will bring wild, rebellious energy to your morning. You may feel excited and crave new experiences. If you step outside your comfort zone, you may discover your soulmate or deepen connections with those you love. Moon sextile Sun at 11:57 AM PST will keep the happiness and harmony flowing. The Moon is void of course in the dual sign of Gemini from 11:57 AM PST onward so embrace whatever comes your way, even if it appears opposite to what your normal way of life. The number of the day, week and card is 6. The vibration of the victories ahead will be strong but be careful of dependancy. I say this because although there’s a lot of superstition behind the number 666, I can’t help but notice that the Lovers, numbered 6, is also the opposite of the Devil card, which is numbered 15 but in numerology breaks down to 6. Therefore, bringing the Gemini duality into it, there is a balance between love and hate, light and darkness, generosity and greed. What may feel perfect today may become the chains that bind you tomorrow.
Mantra: There’s a thin line between love and obsession.

Wednesday 4/13/16 The Sun
Moon in Cancer
Moon Void of Course 8:59 PM PST
The Sun is a card of shining potential and possibility. It’s a card of standing in the light and being present within oneself in absolute confidence. The downside to this card is that it sometimes causes you to shrink from the brightness of your own light. Moon sextile Jupiter at 2:13 AM PST brings happiness and stability to your relationships.
