It’s the 16th week of the year and the card of the week is the 8 of Wands. Mercury shifted gears and accompanied by some major transits over the weekend, brought a much needed wake up call. Now it may feel that you’ve woken up in a different paradigm so embrace it. Now is the time to blast off into the future at hyper speed. So it’s a Cosmic coincidence that we bid farewell to the Atomic Tarot by the Atomic Pixies (interview coming soon!) and say hello to the Astral Tarot by 78 Cards this week, a unique deck which features a different artist’s work on each card. The number of the week is 7, a number reminding us that we are so lucky to be here, now, in this moment.

Monday 04/16/18 Judgement
Moon Void of Course
Moon Enters Taurus 1:51 A.M. PST
Card Artist: Iris Compiet
Judgement is the life and rebirth that follows the darkness of death. If you feel things have changed, know that they have. Mercury Stationed direct yesterday and brought some huge changes. If you lost something during this time, know that it was because it was not serving a purpose in your life. Now that it’s gone, you have the space for new and exciting things in your life. Now is the time to harken to what is calling you. Moon trine Saturn at 5:38 P.M. PST is a transit that allows you to accept the responsibility for the changes that must be made in order to manifest the reality in which you are called to wake up into. Venus opposition Jupiter at 11:59 P.M. PST will leave you feeling good about the reality you have been called to wake up in. The Moon is void of course until 1:51 A.M. PST when She enters the earthy sign of Taurus. Take time to find love and appreciation for the creative energy in the art of fate. The number of the day is 4, a number of stability.

Tuesday 04/17/18 Knight of Pentacles
Moon in Taurus
Moon Void of Course 3:05 P.M. PST
Card Artist: Felicia Cano
Mercury going direct has brought some things into light for you about the direction you’re heading in. If you feel clear on what you want now, it’s time to start planning the journey you are called to go on. It may take time and effort but nothing worthwhile was accomplished overnight. Moon sextile Neptune at 4:28 A.M. PST is a transit that reminds us that the future your desire begins with crystal clear visualization. Venus trine Pluto at 6:02 A.M. PST is a transit that brings intense emotional exchanges and strong feelings of love. Take time to apricate art if you can today. Moon trine Mars at 6:48 A.M. PST will give you the courage you need to do, which includes telling someone how you really feel. Moon conjunct Jupiter at 1:49 P.M. PST is a transit that may find you getting carried away with the good feelings today. Watch yourself and watch your ego. Moon trine Pluto at 2:18 P.M.

You are in control. Saturn stations retrograde today at 6:47 P.M. PST and will stay in retrograde until 09/06/18. While Saturn is in Retrograde, this is a time where karma is strong. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction and you will see what your actions have wrought. But don’t be afraid, this is a test of how much you can handle. Like the Knight of Pentacles, take your time and know that life is a journey and not a destination. You are being given the chance to work out problems at this time. Use this gift for what it’s worth. The Moon is void of course in Taurus from 3:05 P.M. onward, reminding you to slow down and enjoy and savor what is coming to you.
