Daughters off the Moon Tarot

Reading for the Month:

For the Reading of the Month I use a Three Card spread which indicates, the opportunities of the month to come, the challenges of the month ahead and the best actions to take to meet your goals. 

Opportunities For The Month:

'Opportunities For The Month': The card Temperance indicates that balance in your life is needed at this time. This card depicts a woman holding 2 cups stands on a hilltop with the Sun rising and the Sun beams shining brightly. In one cup appears to be water, the symbol for awareness and consciousness and in the other cup are flames of fire. Fire is the element of passion and energy. The woman dances with the cups before pouring them into the air. Whenever this card appears in a reading, a test can be presented to you, and the test whatever it may be could be exerting a lot of stress. Temperance suggests there is a strong need for truth and establishing self discipline. You can find yourself seeking a comfort point by balancing the acquisition of money and following a spiritual path.The act of balancing is required to find peace and direction. This is also a card of creativity. Allow your creative psychic energy to express itself. In moments of hardship having quiet, 

meditative moments bring answers you've been looking for. Once you've received a Divine message, have no fear of springing into action and doing what you feel is necessary to regain balance. If your life is moving too fast, slow down and recenter. On April the 4th there is a powerful alignment of planets Jupiter and Pluto. The combination of these 2 planets is a major Universal sign of encouragement. The chance to create a stronger structure appears and this is an ideal time to take steps to establish or redesign a goal for your future. Jupiter is the planet of good luck and opportunity. Pluto is the planet of the soul and the deepest core of your being. The opportunity to let your soul redirect its future is now here. Take advantage of it!  Make  your dreams and wishes come true. Look below to see how the Jupiter/Pluto union might influence you...


Aries: Now that the entire world is in confusion, you have a chance to sit back and reconsider the direction of your career.

Challenges For The Month:

Challenge of the Month: The card that appears in the 'challenging' position this month is the 7 of Blades/Meditation. This card reveals an eskimo woman standing with a spear in one hand a knife, in the other on an iced pond in the act of fishing. In front of her is a hole in the ice with her spear pointed downward. In back of her are 5  more spears pointing upward in the ice with a dog sitting besides her waiting contently for any movement from the hole in the pond. This is a card of mental discipline. Controlling your thoughts bring enormous power. This card also suggests  'practicing meditation heals and strengthens the mind.' Meditation can led one to deeper understandings by  centering, stabilizing  and harmonizing the mind, and the way  you internalize situations. This card in traditional Tarot has strong connections to the 'Star'  and 'High Priestess cards, 

that suggests by turning within and diving into your intuitive self will you let go of the fear of the unknown and quiet the spirit. When this card arrives in a reading there is a strong suggestion of establishing a prayer and meditation practice to connect with higher forms of Divinity. The full Moon on the 7th arrives in the sign of Libra, the sign of harmony and alignment. There is also a need of forming peaceful unions. Libra rules the house of relationships in astrology and the full Moon always sheds light on what is going on with the current status of your partnerships whether they are work associates or friendships. Look below to see how the full Moon in Libra might influence you...

Aries: Weaknesses in your relationship are being revealed. Your desire to have romance with a certain person feels to be out of your control. The full Moon crashes all delusions and misdirected fantasies about a loved one. If you've been closing your eyes and ignoring the facts before you, the full Moon shocks you with information you need to know. There are worse things that being lonely…like being made  to look like a fool. 

Taurus: Your purpose in life might seem to be out of alignment. Your current work (if you're still one of the fortunate ones to have a job at the moment,) might not be what you've really wanted to do. And yes, it is true that financial stability has always been a priority, but take some private moments this full Moon and delve into your heart to uncover your real life's purpose. Visions for your future are very important this full Moon.

Gemini: Facing your challenges alone might be necessary. The people you've considered as allies can disappoint you some way this month. Events around the full Moon can be very revealing in terms of who is there and who isn't.  These tough times will alert you to the people you carry into your future and the ones you leave behind. You'll learn a harsh lesson this full Moon. But it is a lesson well needed.


Cancer: Conversations can terribly wrong this full Moon. For some reason the people you normally talk with bring extra irritation during your interactions. The planets indicate that this can be more your issue than theirs due to your sensitivity level being extremely thin. Try to have more patience than usual. If not, people will begin to feel and think differently about you.


Leo: Avoid conflicts with your loved ones this full Moon. The outside stress can steep into your relationship without warning. Refraining from saying certain things even in the heat of an argument. Wrong words can determine if you and a loved one can get past the conflict and stay together. This full Moon hits a few tender issues, so try hard not to over react. Go take a walk (with your mask on) and cool down if necessary, but don't get blind sided and unwittingly end your situation.


Virgo: For those people who are still clinging to you for comfort and usually not giving much in return…you have the opportunity to turn off your phone and not answer their emails. Some folks never know when enough is enough and you'll now have to set boundaries about the energy to share. Spend more time building yourself up and allowing others to find their own way for a change. 


Libra: The full Moon turns a spotlight on your health concerns. During this time of crisis indulging in an unhealthy diet and not attempting to get enough exercise are not the paths to take. You are encouraged to do the right thing for your body and choose the best for your current situation. Find ways to maintain mental and spiritual harmony and rise above all stressful matters that unexpectedly pop up.


Scorpio: Deception surrounds your love life this full Moon. Either lies will be revealed or someone will spread a lie to ruin your romantic situation. Avoid jumping to conclusions until you find out the origin of the story or investigate the issue being uncovered. You're either dating a lier or someone is lying to destroy what you have in love. Move carefully.


Sagittarius: Don't feel guilty about making new plans for the future. Once things get back to normal, there are somethings that will never fall back into place. You don't need permission to change your mind and rethink your life. If someone doubt your choices about taking a different direction, you should give them distance. Surround yourself only with people who back your decisions.

Capricorn: People from the past are busy trying to find out what is going on with you, old loves especially. Expect a few text messages or emails from those trying to renter your life. The past cycle has taught you a few lessons about 'walking backwards' or not allow yourself to move into the future. Communicate if you like, but don't make room for something you've outgrown.


Aquarius: Someone with a great deal of charisma could sweep you off your feet this month. If you're currently on the dating sites or just connecting with others over the Internet just know that you can be pleasantly surprised with meeting someone who feels very special. On a different note if you're not looking for love finding a group of people who share the same views can also happen. Socializing increases during the full Moon.


Pisces: Don't let your good heart get you in trouble with money. With everyone so much in need you could get an urgent call from a person who needs a loan. There is a warning about loaning money at this time. If you can't afford to give a financial gift,  it is best to avoid a loan. Chances are you won't get it back anyway. Just do everything with your eyes open.


Actions To Take:

In the 3rd position of which 'Actions To Take,' is the card of the 10 of Blades/The Rattle appears. This card depicts a circle of 10 woman holding a meeting in a Native American tee pee surrounded by candles. According to the card's meaning, 'it portrays a family, tribal or matriarchal, in a circle of communication' where a rattle is passed from person to person giving  that person the power to speak. This is a Native American tradition to pass the rattle. This card is also about the 'power of agreement' in groups and community settings. By passing the rattle everyone has a chance to express their opinion, and the group can focus on forming alliances, gaining cooperation and  ensuring the power of agreement. Whenever this card shows up in a reading, it indicates that time to communicate and share your opinion has come. The next moment you're in a group setting make it a point

of letting folks know what you think and how you feel. There is power in truth. On the 22nd, there is a new Moon in the sign of Taurus. Taurus is the sign of wealth, worth and value. 'Wealth' in terms of  the ways you attract money in your life and 'worth' regarding how much you value yourself as a person. The new Moon gives you a chance to reset and reboot your direction and course of action. This new Moon is a good time to rethink your self worth in your relationships and with those you spend a lot of energy with. Look below to determine how the new Moon in Taurus might influence you...

Aries: You now have the ideal excuse to get rid of a few friends and associates. With the current crisis causing everyone to restrict social contacts, you can permanently remove those you're out growing or not on the same mental level with. The new Moon in Taurus provides determination to avoid making contact and clearing  your emotional space. Now is the time to reboot your social alliances.

Taurus: Don't be afraid to create a new realty this new Moon. If you've been unhappy with your past regarding the company you keep or the lack of mental discipline you've had, the internal determination for change arrives this new Moon. Only you and no-one else is responsible for your happiness and doing what it takes to get to your 'happy place' is up to you. Find gratitude in the little things, and very soon joy will be revealed. It's all up to you!

Gemini: Mental rest is urgently required for you this new Moon. As an air sign you normally interact and communicate with no problems, but stressful messages are being picked up this month that can cause you to lack enthusiasm for your hopes and dreams. Pick your conversations carefully and avoid anyone who drains your energy. You need reserve your vitally to stay optimistic. 

Cancer:  Although this crisis is financially bad for everyone, you seem to figure out a way to hold on to your money or find another monetary source due to your mental abilities. The new Moon directs you to connect and share ideas with others. It is in your nature to hold on to things that are precious. You are faced with figuring out potential finances for your future…and you will do well!

Leo: If you're tired of always being the one in charge, the planets encourage you to let go and take a break. Being the boss is hard work and now that the world is upside down, allow yourself to take a different view on matters and let someone take the reins. The new Moon inspires a new image and a realignment with new folks. Surround yourself with strong and independent individuals. Get rid of emotionally draining situations.


Virgo: Take the word 'depression' out of your vocabulary. Just because in the past you've always been able to figure things out doesn't stop you from being your mentally bright self in these days of crisis. There are some problems that don't have answers for and some situations you just have to experience. Don't burn out your brain trying to find solutions. Turn it over to God.

Libra: Your sense of generosity has to be weighed carefully. It's fine to be good to those who really are in need.This new Moon forces you to but put the brakes on certain friends or family who appear to be opportunistic. Follow your gut instincts when giving and receiving. A dark spirit can get darker in times of need. Protect yourself.

Scorpio: If you're not comfortable talking to certain people during this crisis don't force yourself to do so. The new Moon inspires to you speak with those who are encouraging and uplifting, and if for some reason you're avoiding certain individuals meditate on why you feel this way. Respect your intuition. Something wrong might be at hand.

Sagittarius: Maintaining your mental health is critical. The new Moon suggests that in spite of avoiding being in the presence of others during this time, you could use space away from other people's energies anyway. Make room for enjoying as many peaceful moments as you can and try not to listen to a bunch of rumors. Your spirit only does well with the truth.

Capricorn: Be inventive when it comes to romancing someone you like. If it's not possible to be in the same space, use a bit of creativity to date over the Internet by Face Timing your loved while the both of you are eating dinner and such and such. You have strong indicators regarding love and romance. Close the physical separation by activating the emotional intimacy with lots of phone calls, texts and Skyping. 

Aquarius: Creating personal space with someone you live with might be difficult. Your emotional needs shift during the new Moon and you could be more sensitive to the vibrations of others. Get a lot of fresh air and busy yourself with enjoying your music and finding methods to structure boundaries. Try hard to be polite if living with someone. This Moon can bring out extreme behavior.

Pisces: With so much negativity around, gossip is the last thing you need. Yes there are a lot of people stressed out and need to release it in some way. But being involved in destructive conversations is not the route to take. For every negative word you hear around the new Moon try to replace it with 2 positive words and change the energy field around you.
