Tarot and the moon: It’s a magical month
Yasmin Boland is an award-winning astrologer and moonologer. She uses the divine wisdom of the moon and her Moonology oracle cards to guide us through the month!
The ‘love month,’ February, is upon us, and how are you feeling about it? Are you planning a romantic night? Or are you single and thinking about sending a message to that special someone to let them know you’re interested? What about the astrological and moonological energies of the night – how significant are they?
Here are the three important bits of cosmic info you need to know about Valentine’s day (and night) 2019. 1. On 14 February 2018, the Moon will be in the sign of Gemini. This is actually awesome news because Gemini is the chatty sign of the zodiac. Conversation will be flowing freely whether you’re on a nerve-racking Valentine’s date with someone new or you’re part of a long-time married couple - or anything in between. 2. We will be in the waxing cycle of the moon – that’s the cycle from New to Full when everything is happening. It’s the time to go after what you want, make your desires known to the Universe and to chase your most romantic dreams. Very good juju for Valentine’s. 3. Very interestingly, the next planetary combo after Valentine’s is between Venus, the planet of love, and Neptune, the planet of soulmates, poetry and dreams. Yet another highly auspicious omen!
So let’s ask the cards: What is the main theme for me this Valentine’s day? Close or ‘blur’ your eyes and use your index finger to choose card 1, 2 or 3.
Card 1: YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH
This card comes as a reminder that whether you wake up on 14 February to champagne and roses, or all alone, you are good enough! It also comes with the message that you have been underrating yourself. If your Valentine’s isn’t all you’ve hoped you may need to work on rating yourself more highly so others will too.
Card 2: MEDITATE AND CONTEMPLATE
This card speaks of dreams and romance, soulmates and poetry. It suggests there’s an exciting new start coming your way this Valentine’s. Really. Disclaimer; there could also be confusion and disappointment if that’s what you’re expecting - we create our own reality. If you’re onto a good thing lovewise, wish hard because the words of your heart could bring about the manifestation of your dreams.
Card 3: ADJUSTMENTS ARE REQUIRED
This Valentine’s, be honest about whether there are toxic emotions swirling in your head about your love life, your lover or your ex. If so, release them! This card comes with the promise that all is not lost, but you have a way to go before you can celebrate. Changes or adjustments are needed to get you to where you want to be.
