Hello, My Darlings! It gives me great pleasure to offer these messages from The Wildwood Tarot as a balm for what’s often the chilliest, dreariest month of the year. Fear not: the sun is coming. Warmer days are knocking on the door even though we can’t quite hear them yet. Keep your eyes peeled for snowdrops and keep the faith–Spring will certainly come once more!
Be sure to read your sun, moon, and rising sign tarotscopes gain greater insight, and remember to stay true to yourself as you bravely pursue that which brings delight and fulfillment!
Aries | The Journey
The writing is on the wall Aries–this leg of your journey has reached its conclusion. It’s time to say your goodbyes, tie up loose ends, and embrace the change that’s reaching out to you. As Seneca famously said, “every new beginning comes from some others beginning’s end.” The snake eats its own tale. The universe dies and is reborn. Give yourself permission to grieve this loss if you need to–it’s healthy to feel through shifts. Once you’ve processed, look to the new day that dawns. In it, you’ll see a brand new path laid out before you.
Taurus | Three of Arrows
They say the grass is always greener Taurus, but I invite you to peer over the fence: aren’t there patches of dry, cracked earth there too? Isn’t there growth in some places and dearth in others, like there is in every vast landscape of the heart? You might feel as if you want to exchange your lot for someone else’s, but yours was given to you to perfectly support your growth in this lifetime. Instead of wishing for something else, look closely at what you have and find the beauty in it–I promise you it’s there.
Gemini | Knight of Stones
You’re being invited to put your nose to the grindstone, Gemini–hard work reaps plentiful rewards this month. The process may not always be fun and will most likely be challenging, but trust that diligence, persistence, and perseverance will serve you well. Remember to take periodic breaks as needed, and double down on self-care. Just because you’re working hard doesn’t mean you need to fall prey to burn out. If you make the very most of the free time you do have, you may even be able to achieve your healthiest work/life balance to date.
Cancer | Five of Stones
Though storms rage around you, Cancer, you remain undaunted. You’re not often given the credit you deserve for your strength and your resiliency, but the universe sees you and bows to you this month. Keep fighting the good fight. Do what you can to create warmth and abundance in your little corner of the world. Make the most of what you have, and if you can, build from it. Although this is a time to lay low, it’s also a time to plot and plan. If you can figure out a way to create more stability in your experience, you can lay the ground work for calmer weather in your psychospiritual atmosphere.
Leo | Four of Stones
Last month, you were invited to put yourself out there, Leo. This month, you’re being invited to bring yourself back in. Create a warm, safe, comfortable place in which to rest and retreat. Delight in solitude, and withdraw from any unnecessary conflict and drama. Right now, you are your highest priority, so do what you need to do to protect your energy from anything toxic or draining. Make sure you take care of yourself first, and when you’re ready, extend yourself to care for those in need.
Virgo | King of Bows
Don’t shy away from the fray this month, Virgo. Summon your courage, your zeal, and your strength, and make the impact you were always meant to make. The universe only rewards the energy we invest, so it’s important to us to be an active creator in our experience. If you want to get somewhere, you’ll have to stand up and assert yourself. Despite what you might think, you can do this fairly and with integrity. Go forth knowing that the universe has your back!
Libra | Nine of Vessels
You’ve hit the jackpot, Libra! This month is all about bliss and contentment, so embrace the good vibes and give yourself permission to be happy and free. If you’re currently feeling everything but what this card suggests, it’s time to overhaul your outlook and express gratitude for the many boons and blessings you’ve received in this lifetime. Honor every loving relationship you have despite its challenges and imperfections. Give thanks for the roof over your head, the food you eat, and the air you breathe. Every day is a gift, and you are too–never forget it!
Scorpio | The Stag
Your inner strength is one of your greatest assets, Scorpio. The time has come to dig deep and do the hard thing, because that hard thing will remove the obstacles standing between you and your Genius’ deepest desires. Where have you been selling yourself short? In what ways have you allowed your fears and insecurities to creep in and sabotage you? Take the time you need to examine shadows and false beliefs, and then take action. Remember: nothing will change until you do.
Sagittarius | Knight of Bows
It’s time to access your cunning side, Sagittarius! Sometimes it takes cleverness and finesse to coax your light into its brightest expression, and you can achieve this vibe by fully embracing your wit, motivation, and joie de vivre. Don’t be afraid to take a risk or two this month, especially if you’re feeling called to do so. Don’t dim to fit in–be yourself fully and unapologetically. Doors begin opening themselves to you left and right, but you’re the one who must walk through them. Be bold! The world sleeps on those who always stand still.
Capricorn | Four of Arrows
Rest is sacred, Capricorn, and the universe has spoken: it’s time for you to take a break. You have big plans for the new year, and those plans need tending to. However, you’ll have to take the time necessary to restore your energy so you can meet the new year with vitality and enthusiasm. Set aside time each day to relax and unwind in the way that’s best for you: a walk, a bath, meditation, or even a good old-fashioned nap. You deserve the peace and solitude you need to revivify yourself. Give yourself permission, and take it.
Aquarius | Eight of Arrows
If your card is any indication, this winter hasn’t been so kind, Aquarius. Powerful and challenging thoughts have thrown you for a loop, and you haven’t quite been able to put them to rest. It may be hard to see the light in your future for all the clouds in your present, but you must challenge yourself to do so. Reach out in the direction you want to travel. Learn what you can through your trials and tribulations so your struggle hasn’t been in vain. There is light at the end of the tunnel–hang in there, and you’ll reach it soon!
Pisces | Eight of Vessels
Spring’s regenerative energy visits you a few months early, Pisces, and the shift is fully welcome! You’re finally ready to release some emotional attachments that have caused their fair share of turmoil, and the eight of vessels is ready to help you on this journey. It’s time for you to accept what can’t be changed, to make your peace with how things are and to draw and enforce boundaries as you see fit. Reassure your loved ones that you care about them deeply, but let them know that you’ll do what you need to stay healthy. This new year offers a new opportunity for you to teach others how to treat you–seize it, and experience the benefit of better relationships firsthand!
