SPRING

SPRING 2018 TAROTSCOPES: EMBRACING FERTILITY AND CRAFTING ABUNDANCE BY CASEY ZABALA CREATRIX OF WANDERER’S TAROT TAURUS: THE MOON Spring just may be Taurus’ favorite season, with the flowers in bloom and the bees hard at work. The Moon invites Taurus to indulge in the romance of the moment, and prioritize dreamy inner work. Start a dream journal, take in a psychedelic sound bath, and create sacred space where you can tend to your inner world. The Moon pulls us inward in order to discover a rich relationship between our outer-selves and our psyche. Shadow: The Moon may also dreg up nightmares and ancient emotional baggage. Be prepared to process what arises with a grain of salt and a tender heart. @WANDERERSTAROT TAROT CARD FOR SPRING: THE EMPRESS The Empress heralds the beginning of a sweet and abundant Spring time. Tune into your intentions for this season, whether workrelated, or personal, or both! The Empress gifts us with the energetic fertility needed to make our goals manifest, as she teaches us how to coax growth, rather than force it. Make sure you are nurturing your goals, rather than rushing to cross the finish line. Enjoy the process of blossoming. Whatever seeds of intention you planted during the winter months could use a little more tender love and care in order to take shape. The same message can be applied to your self-care. Nourish yourself intentionally throughout the Spring and be prepared to reap the rewards come Summer. ARIES: 5 OF CUPS We welcome the beginning of the Wheel of the Year with our babe of the zodiac, Aries. This Spring offers Aries a cautionary note about emotional responsiveness. Don’t take things too personally, Aries. It’s time for you to take a step back before jumping to conclusions. Rather than waste your energy on petty dramas, use your fire to make real change in the world. Shadow: The 5 of Cups suggests that Aries might end up hurting her own feelings and getting tangled deeper in drama. Our suggestion: channel your passionate responses into your creativity and drive to facilitate justice. GEMINI: THE LOVERS The Lovers in the tarot has a natural affinity with the twins of the zodiac. Gemini, this Spring will be filled with questions of partnership, commitment, and intentional decision making. Are you ready to take your relationship to the next level? Or is it time to part ways? Be thinking about what your ideal future has in store, and allow your heart to operate from that level. Shadow: The Lovers often asks us tough questions regarding what keeps us from being fully committed to our personal growth, and to relationship growth. Gemini, give yourself the space to be totally honest with yourself about your needs CANCER: 7 OF PENTACLES Someone has been hard at work! The 7 of Pentacles suggests a Spring filled with activity and expansion for our sweet Cancers out there. Allow your ambitions to take center stage, and let your creativity be your main emotional outlet. You are about to become a very busy bee. Stay focused on your long term goals to keep you motivated. Shadow: Don’t let the stress of the moment derail you. Maintain a healthy work-life balance to help you cope with the amped up routine LEO: ACE OF CUPS The Ace of Cups signals a time of intuitive awakening for our fiery Leos. This Spring you will be expanding your horizons, awakening your third eye, and moving through the world with an open heart. The Ace of Cups offers a gift of emotional energy, Leo, it’s up to you to decide what you fill your sacred cup with, and whether or not it will overflow, or remain halfempty. Shadow: Not so comfortable with the touchy-feely vibes? This Spring may challenge you to own your emotional responses, and become a more open vulnerable Leo. VIRGO: 2 OF SWORDS It’s all about decisions, decisions, for our practical Virgos this Spring season. The 2 of Swords suggests a stalemate of sorts. Have you been stuck in the planning stages and unable to enact your vision? Channel the vibrancy of Spring and get to work implementing your plans. Listen to what your intuition has to say, and follow your gut instincts. Don’t get caught up in the right-way, wrong-way trap. Just do you. Shadow: The 2 of Swords suggests an over-reliance on our logical mind. It’s time to balance things out by giving your intuition a chance to make a few decisions. ISSUE 01 118
