TNA’s Tarot For The Star-signs – April 2021
Aries: March 21 - April 20
Each time that you don´t allow situations to corrupt you, the opportunity integrates you, crystallizes your soul. Leaving you aware and awake, full of energy, radiant, bubbling and vibrant. Celebrate these moments and move on. The journey isn't over yet.
Comparison with others and suppression of stress and tension will make you dull and sleepy, leaving you feeling dead with no energy. Beat a pillow, scream into a valley, do whatever it takes to shake up your energy and allow it to circulate freely. Don't wait for a catastrophe to happen. Knowing everybody is incomparably unique, you will find yourself and fulfil your own potential in the best way you know how.
This moment carries a gift, for hard work well done. Your base is solid now and success and good fortune are yours for they are the outcome of what has already been experienced within. Enjoy the eternal spring in your being. Look back as far as you can and it has always been there. Look forward as much as you can, and you will be surprised: it is your very being. Wherever you are it will be there, and the flowers will continue to shower on you. This is spiritual spring.
Taurus: April 21 – May 21
In silence and waiting something inside you goes on growing: your authentic being, spontaneous and responsive. Go with the flow, move like water: towards depth. Allow warmth, love and joy to melt your pain into tears.
It's time to take a look at your own reflection in the pond, and make a move to break out of whatever you have been conditioned by others to believe about yourself. Every moment in life we have a choice whether to enter life's waters and float, or to try to swim upstream. Float, trust that life will support you in your relaxation and take you exactly where it wants you to go. Let go of any unnatural routines, expectations and defined reactions.
Gemini: May 22 – June 21
Forget all about making headlines by inventing the latest gadgets or dazzling your friends, family or colleagues with your unique star quality. The special gift you have to offer now is presented best by just taking things easily and simply, one step at a time, in ordinariness. Beauty can be found in simple things, there is so much joy all around you. Be aware of it and become a participant, don’t just remain a spectator. Don't waste your life for that which is going to be taken away, for whatever can be taken away from you is not worth keeping! Trust life. Be the bungee jumper with no reservations or secret safety nets.
Your sense of security is being challenged, and the natural tendency is to try to hold on to whatever you can. But this inner earthquake is both necessary and tremendously important, meet the process halfway and try and watch the destruction with detachment, almost as if it were happening to somebody else. You will emerge from the wreckage stronger and more available for new experiences.
Cancer: June 22 – July 22
You are feeling left out, excluded, like an outsider. Don’t: because your connection with the universe is of consciousness. There is no need to plan so much and be afraid of that which will be taken away. Nothing that is yours can ever be taken away and that which can be, was never worth keeping anyway. By covering our wounds with armour, we are preventing them from being healed. By lashing out at others we keep ourselves from getting the love and nourishment we need.
If this description seems to fit you it's time to stop fighting. There is so much love available to you if you just let it in. Start by forgiving yourself: you're worth it. The innocence of a life lived fully has a quality of wisdom and acceptance of the ever-changing wonder of life. Accept and embrace the new: life is a continuity, a pilgrimage and there is no final destination it is going towards.
Leo: July 23 – August 23
When the fruit is ripe, it drops from the tree by itself: 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. Let’s face it, there is always going to be somebody who is more beautiful, more talented, stronger, more intelligent, or apparently happier than you are.
And conversely, there will always be those who are less than you in all these ways. The way to find out who you are is not by comparing yourself with others, and thinking you are very wise and clever or conversely, but by looking to see whether you are fulfilling your own potential in the best way you know how.
When we are faced with a very difficult situation, we have a choice: we can either avoid or deny them or be resentful, and try to find somebody or something to blame for the hardships or we can face the challenge and grow. If the seed is to become the flower, we must go through them. Be courageous enough to grow into the flower you are meant to be.
There is a vast reservoir of energy available to us. We tap into it, not by thinking and planning but by getting grounded, centred, and silent enough to be in contact with the Source. There is no such thing as wrong time.
Virgo: August 24 – September 22
Our treasures (material, time, feelings) become tarnished and worthless if we refuse to share them. Whatever you're holding on to, remember that you can't take it with you. Loosen your grip and feel the freedom and expansiveness sharing can bring. Become a flow; don't remain stagnant. Move, and move like water, with the flow, not upstream.
If life these days feels like just a struggle from the cradle to the grave, it could be time to shrug your shoulders and see what it feels like to walk without these characters on your back and release yourself from all the expectations you've gathered from others.
Chances are they exist only in your own mind. Life repeats itself mindlessly: unless you become mindful and see the pattern, then you can get out of it. There is no need to struggle or plan too much, accept and embrace the new.
Libra: September 23 – October 23
Our greatest treasure to be able to wait for the right moment. The whole existence waits for the right moment. Even trees know it: when it is time to bring the flowers and when it is time to let go of all the leaves. 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.
The antics of the mind are slightly amusing, as it jumps up and down and twists this way and that, trying to get your attention and seduce you into the game. To develop the knack of taking a distance from the mind is one of the greatest blessings.
It is what meditation is all about really: just watching, as if the mind belongs to somebody else. You are ready to take this distance now, and to watch the show without getting caught up in the drama. Indulge yourself in the simple freedom of Turning In whenever you can, and the knack of meditation will grow and deepen in you.
This mind gives you a sort of stupor. Burdened by the memories of the past, burdened by the projections of the future, you go on living - at the minimum. You don't live at the maximum. Your flame remains very dim.
Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
You are not accidental. Existence needs you. Without you something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it. Once you can accept this with clarity, you will see tremendous love falling on you from all dimensions. You don't depend on others and you don't make others dependent on you.
Then it is a friendship, a friendliness, a relatedness out of love. And if you see that the moment has come to depart because your paths separate at this crossroad, you say good-bye with great gratitude for all that the other has been to you, for all the joys and all the pleasures and all the beautiful moments that you have shared with the other. With no misery, with no pain, you simply separate.
Comparisons lead to inferiority or superiority. You have an opportunity now to quit tormenting yourself with ideas that you are somehow excluded. Recognize the roots of these feelings in the past, and let go of the old pain. It will bring you the clarity to see how you can open the gate and enter that which you most long to become.
Don’t create stress with the idea that without you nothing will happen: especially in the way you want it to. Put yourself out of that monkey's reach.
Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21
Times of great sorrow have the potential to be times of great transformation. But in order for transformation to happen we must go deep, to the very roots of our pain, and experience it as it is, without blame or self-pity. Accept that each of us come alone into this world and we go alone. All togetherness is illusory.
The moment you become miserly you are closed to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing. The moment you start clinging to things, you have missed the target. You have suppressed so much, you could explode. It is essential to find a way to release whatever tensions and stresses might be building up inside you right now. Beat on a pillow, jump up and down, go out into the wilderness and scream at the empty sky--anything to shake up your energy and allow it to circulate freely. Don't wait for a catastrophe to happen.
Be creative, technique, expertise and knowledge are just tools: True creativity arises from a union with the divine. It is the quality that you bring to the activity that you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach: how you look at things.
Capricorn: December 22 – January 20
The awareness that is growing in you now is not the result of any conscious "doing”, nor do you need to struggle to make something happen. Any sense you might have had that you've been groping in the dark is dissolving now, or will be dissolving soon. Let yourself settle.
It is time to face up to the fact that the past is gone. Take a deep breath, put the box down, tie it up in a pretty ribbon if you must, and bid it a fond and reverent farewell. Life is passing you by, and you're in danger of becoming an old fossil before your time. Don’t postpone ‘it’ for the tomorrow, decide, make up your mind. If you haven't heard nature whispering to you lately, now is a good time to give her the opportunity.
Move away from your preoccupations with other spaces and other times, and stay alert to what is happening in the here and now. Life is a great ocean in which you can play if you drop all your judgments, your preferences and the attachment to the details of your long-term plans. Be available to what comes your way, as it comes. And don't worry if you stumble or fall; just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, have a good laugh, and carry on.
Aquarius: January 21 – February 18
The only unchanging thing in the world is change itself. Life will repeat itself mindlessly - unless you become mindful and see the pattern. Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it.
The journey isn't over yet, while your complacency might have arisen from a real sense of achievement, however, know that it is time to move on. If you feel dull and low on energy or sleepy, pull yourself out of your laziness, don’t deceive yourself with saying you are non-doing. Aware, alert non-doing feels full of energy, radiant, bubbling and vibrating. Alive.
Guilt is one of the most destructive emotions in which we can get caught. When we punish ourselves for our failures by feeling guilty, we can get locked into a cycle of despair and hopelessness that robs us of all clarity about ourselves and the situations we encounter. You are absolutely okay as you are, and it is absolutely natural to go astray from time to time. Just learn from it, move on, and use the lesson not to make the same mistake again.
Don’t stress yourself with an unnatural routine or perfectionism. Do you think the sun won't rise in the morning unless you personally set the alarm? Go for a walk, buy some flowers: anything 'unimportant' will do. Just put yourself out of that monkey's reach. Remember, all private goals are neurotic.
This moment carries a gift: for hard work well done. Your base is solid now and success and good fortune are yours for they are the outcome of what has already been experienced within.
Pisces: February 19 - March 20
You have formed yourself by embracing all the colours of the rainbow. You have discovered your own true nature and are determined to live in accordance with it. The eagle is your spirit animal, a messenger between earth and sky. Remain courageous and take responsibility for who you are.
If you are split, confused or stuck between a yes or a no, it is better to follow your heart, if you can find it. If you can't find it, just jump: your heart will start beating so fast there will be no mistake about where it is.
There is a vast reservoir of energy available to you. And you tap into it not by thinking and planning but by getting grounded, centred, and silent enough to be in contact with the Source. So whether you are beginning something new and need inspiration right now, or you've just finished something and want to rest, go to the Source, then wait : patiently, alert and content.
Be available and open to the many opportunities that are to celebrate in life, and to spread this by contagion to others. Don't bother about scheduling a party on your calendar. Let your hair down, take your shoes off, and start splashing in the puddles right now. The party is happening all around you every moment.
