It’s the 38th week of the year and the card of the week is the Magician. I am personally super excited about this week because I’m debuting the Darkness of Light Tarot by Tony DiMauro! This deck is such a pleasure to work with and I’m so thankful to have permission to share it with you in the forecast! The Magician is a card of making magic happen. As above, so below. As within, so without. This week we are called to live this to the extreme by examining our thoughts and minds and being honest about where forgiveness needs to be asked for and where it needs to be forgiven. When we live an honest life we enhance our lives and the lives of others around us. This is not a time for guilt tripping, but it is a time for making amends. If possible write letters to those you need to reach out to this week — hand written is better than e-mails. You’ll be surprised at the magic that happens. The number of the week is 2, a number of justice.
Mantra: Forgiveness is the first step in letting go.

Monday 9/18/17 2 The Fool
Moon in Virgo
The Fool is a card of new beginnings. The number of the day is also 1(0), another indication that whatever you begin today will take you on a journey. The only major transit today is Moon opposition Neptune at 7:47 PM PST. This transit brings feelings of guilt and confusion. As tempting as it is to get stuck in the past, the future awaits you so what are you waiting for? The Moon is in the detailed sign of Virgo so whatever you do today, make sure you do it carefully to bring about success.
Mantra: The past is the past, the future awaits.
Tuesday 9/19/17 3 of Swords
New Moon in Virgo 10:30 PM PST
Moon Void of Course 10:30 PM PST
The 3 of Swords is a card of heartbreak and loss. It can also indicate infidelity. If you have to let go some something, know that it wasn’t meant to last. Moon trine Pluto at 3:34 AM PST is a transit of intense sensitivity. Be gentle in your encounters with others. Moon square Saturn at 12:10 PM PST is a depressing, heavy transit. Remember it doesn’t rain forever. Venus enters Virgo at 6:15 PM PST where she will stay until 10/14/17. While Venus is in Virgo, people put tender, love and care into their relationships. This is a time when actions speak louder than words. Pay special attention to how people act because it will reveal what is unsaid. Mercury opposition Neptune at 8:50 PM PST is a confusing transit that muddles the truth. Avoid making major decisions at this time. Moon conjunct Sun at 10:30 PM PST brings the New Moon in Virgo. Set intentions with a focus on looking at the details of past mistakes in relationships to move forward form any painful, emotional blockages. Take note that the Moon also goes void of course at 10:30 PM PST so if doing any ritual work for New Moon, make sure to do it before the or after the Moon is void of course. The number of the day is 2 and the card of the day is 3 reminding us that although perfect unity is possible, nothing lasts forever.
Mantra: Everything has a beginning and an end.
Wednesday 9/20/17 Ace of Cups
Moon Enters Libra 3:06 AM PST
The Ace of Cups is a card of overflowing love, creativity, joy and beauty. Whatever you experience today, take time to really embrace life with gratitude and give back what you receive to others. When this card appears, it could also mark the beginning of a love affair. The Moon is in the balanced sign of Libra today from 3:06 AM onwards. It’s interesting that we had the 3 of Swords yesterday and the number of the day was 2. Then today we have the Ace of cups, the moon is in the dualistic sign of Libra and the number of the day is 3. If we take these two together, we see that today has the opportunity to help us start over again by teaching us from what we learned from past heartbreaks and move into a new paradigm of love. It’s time to bring love back into balance. 3 is a number of things coming together, so expect to develop a clearer understanding of what you can do to mend your broken heart or mend broken relationships.
Mantra: Everybody deserves a second chance.
Thursday 9/21/17 10 of Cups
Moon in Libra
Rosh Hashanah Begins
One door shuts and the other opens. It’s the Jewish New Year and this card promises joy, peace and love in the upcoming year ahead. This is a time when you can ask for forgiveness and it will be given. The cards over the past few days have all been leading up to this: realizing your faults and asking for forgiveness to heal broken relationships. It’s time to swallow your pride and let love in. Moon square Pluto at 10:01 AM PST is a transit of secrets being revealed. If you have something to confess, do it now because Moon sextile Saturn at 7:12 PM PST is a transit that brings acceptance of the way things are so it’s a favorable time for forgiveness. The Moon is in the judicial sign of Libra, assuring that all judgement passed will be favorable. The number of the day is 4, a number of stability.
Mantra: Ask and you shall receive.
Friday 9/22/17 7 of Cups
Moon Void of Course 6:04 AM PST
Moon Enters Scorpio 10:40 AM PST
The 7 of Cups is the card of a dreamer. Take some time to embrace the possibilities today by dreaming with an open heart and open mind. These dreams will illuminate great truths. Moon conjunct Jupiter at 3:27 Am PST brings just the right energy to open you heart up to joyfully embrace change. Moon opposition Uranus is an impulsive transit that often leads to making bad decisions. It’s best to not act at all during this time. Mercury trine Pluto at 10:59 AM PST is a transit that takes you deeper into exploring external issues. The questions that you have can be answered with complete honesty. The Sun enters the balanced sign of Libra. If we subtract 5 (the number of the day) from 7 (the card of the day) we get 2, brining justice and balance. The Moon enters the stinging sign of Scorpio today at 10:40 AM so remember, sometime times the truth can sting.
Mantra: Dare to dream.
Saturday 9/23/17 Ace of Wands
Moon in Scorpio
The Ace of wands is a fiery card that’s all about the beginning of passion. It’s the spark that can become a flame. Whatever it is that ignites your feelings today, let it burn. Moon sextile Mars at 8:53 AM PST is a transit of bravery and leadership. Jump into whatever it is today with confidence and you’ll go far. Moon trine Neptune at 10:22 AM PST is a psychic transit so follow your intuition. Moon sextile Pluto at 7:07 PM PST wakens the love of the mysterious. Let whatever comes to the surface burn bright.

Mantra: Burn baby, burn.
Sunday 9/17/17 2 of Pentacles
Moon Void of Course in Scorpio 12:33 AM PST
Moon Enters Sagittarius 9:01 PM PST
The 2 of Pentacles is a card of doing a balancing act. Whatever it is you’re balancing, whether it be work, love or money, you have a handle on things … at least for the moment. Take some time today to think about if you can keep this up or if you need a break and follow whatever you find in your heart. Moon sextile Mercury at 12:33 AM PST is a card of flowing thoughts and communications. It’s a good time to reach out and socialize. Mars opposition Neptune is a transit that may leave you feeling down on yourself if you feel like you aren’t living up to expectations – either ones you’ve set for yourself or ones you’ve set for others. So avoid others and spend today by yourself working on projects and on yourself. You may just accomplish something you never thought you could. The Moon is void of course in Scorpio for most of the day so focus on wrapping things up instead of starting new things. The number of the day is 7, a number of reassessment and reevaluation.
Mantra: Balancing is knowing the difference between when to hang on and when to let go.
