TNA’s Self-Discovery Tarot For January 2021
Capricorn: December 22 – January 20
Think of all the great words and great teachings you have heard so far as your deadly enemy. Avoid them, because you have to find your own source. You don’t have to be a follower, nor an imitator. You have to be an original individual; you have to find your innermost core on your own, with no guide, no guiding scriptures.
Aquarius: January 21 – February 18
You are ready to let go of any expectations you have had about yourself or other people, and to take responsibility for any illusions you might have been carrying. If desires and hopes and dreams are fading away, so much the better.
Their disappearance is making space for a new quality of stillness and acceptance of what is, and you are able to welcome this development in a way you have never been able to before. Savour this quality of slowing down, being at ease with who you are right now.
Pisces: February 19 - March 20
This a time of movement and change. It may be a physical movement from one place to the next, or an inner movement from one way of being to another. But whatever the case, the going will be easy and will bring a sense of adventure and growth; there is no need to struggle or plan too much.
Remember to accept and embrace the new, just as when we travel to another country with a different culture and environment than the one, we are accustomed to. This attitude of openness and acceptance invites new friends and experiences into our lives. Remember, life is a continuity always and always. There is no final destination it is going towards. Just the pilgrimage, just the journey in itself is life.
Aries: March 21 - April 20
You have an opportunity to participate with others now to make your contribution to creating something greater and more beautiful than each of you could manage alone. Your participation will not only nourish you, but will also contribute something precious to the whole. In such a beautiful world we are living in small ponds of our own misery.
It is familiar, so even if somebody wants to pull you out, you struggle. You don't want to be pulled out of your misery, of your suffering. Otherwise, there is so much joy all around, you have just to be aware of it and to become a participant, not a spectator. Make participation your lifestyle.
Taurus: April 21 – May 21
Trust the inner guidance you are being given. It speaks in whispers, and sometimes we can hesitate, not knowing if we have understood rightly. But the indications are clear: in following the inner guide you will feel more whole, more integrated, as if you are moving outwards from the very centre of your being. If you go with it, this beam of light will carry you exactly where you need to go.
Gemini: May 22 – June 21
If you are feeling like an outsider, know that it is a transitory period. Be alert not to fill yourself with pain and misery. When you know yourself, you can stand squarely on your feet. You have been disconnected physically from your mother.
That disconnection was absolutely necessary to make you an individual in your own right. But you are not disconnected from the universe. Your connection with the universe is of consciousness. If you cannot see it, go inwards with deep awareness, watchfulness and witnessing, there at the centre you will find you are still connected.
Cancer: June 22 – July 22
Because of your willingness to accept the recent challenges of life, you are now - or will soon enjoy success. Welcome it, enjoy it, and share your joy with others - and remember that all bright parades have a beginning and an end. If you keep this in mind, and enjoy every moment of happiness you are experiencing now, you will be able to take the future as it comes without regrets.
Leo: July 23 – August 23
There are times when the only thing to do is to wait. The seed has been planted, the child is growing in the womb, the oyster is coating the grain of sand and making it into a pearl. Now is the time to be simply alert, patient, waiting. In silence and waiting something inside you goes on growing--your authentic being. It is a time to be passive and let nature take its course.
Virgo: August 24 – September 22
You have started on a journey. Don't be clever, otherwise you will remain the same, you will not change. Half-hearted techniques will create more confusion in you. Asking for help is against the ego, so you try to compromise.
This compromise is dangerous and bound to confuse you further as its foundation is confusion! Instead, try to understand why you are hankering for compromise.
Is it because you don’t want to choose going in either direction, or it is a repression of your confusion? Either ways, it will not work. Do not repress anything, be clear-cut about your situation. If you are confused, accept that you are confused, ask for help and do not compromise.
Libra: September 23 – October 23
We may feel there are too many things to do at once, and get bogged down in trying to do a bit here, a bit there, instead of taking one task at a time and getting on with it. Or perhaps we think our task is "boring" because we've forgotten that it's not what you do but how you do it that matters. Developing the knack of being total in responding to whatever comes, as it comes, is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Taking one step through life at a time, giving each step your complete attention and energy, can bring a wondrous new vitality and creativity to all that you do.
Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
When the fruit is ripe, it drops from the tree by itself. One moment it hangs by a thread from the branches of the tree, bursting with juice. The next moment it falls--not because it has been forced to fall, or has made the effort to jump, but because the tree has recognized its ripeness and simply let it go.
You are ready to share your inner riches, your essence. All you need to do is relax right where you are, and be willing for it to happen. This sharing of yourself, this expression of your creativity, can come in many ways--in your work, your relationships, your everyday life experiences. No special preparation or effort on your part is required. It is simply the right time.
Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21
If you haven't heard nature whispering to you lately, now is a good time to give her the opportunity. Nature doesn't bang any drums when it bursts forth into flower, nor play any dirges when the trees let go of their leaves in the fall. But when we approach her with a gentle, reverent, and pure heart she has many secrets to share.
So, just look around, look into the eyes of a child, or into the eyes of your beloved, your mother, your friend - or just feel a tree hug you back when hugged. 'Experiencing' is the feeling of wonder, the thrill of communion, the gentle touch of our connectedness with all that surrounds us.
