Aries – March 21 – April 19 : Ace of Pentacles
Happy Birthday, my Aries Darling….oh how I love this card, and how I love the look of this month for you. The Ace in Tarot is the start of a whole “new beginning”. For instance, the very first time I went cross country to see America and slept in a car under the stars….I had butterflies in my stomach for a week before. Why? Because I knew my whole world was about to change. Things I had only seen before in pictures, were out there, waiting for me to see them with my own eyes. Formations of land, bends in the road, villages and towns tucked away, roadside spectacles….they were all out there for me to discover.
Adventure was about to be my lover. You dig?
I also knew that nothing would be the same again…..in a good way. I would return a different person – and it was the start of a whole new mindset for me. That is the story of the Ace of Pentacles. The Pentacles deal with the element of “earth” and point towards abundance and a more positive outlook in life. Are you ready to start a whole new phase of beauty, my birthday darling….?
Question: Take a look at that star in the middle, Dear Aries. In this cross-section of the mighty oak tree, it is a reminder that a great tree started with a single seed. That single seed is what you are planting now, as you continue to grow into that grand and gorgeous tree of your own dreams. This year shall be a gorgeous year of growth and new beginnings. What seeds do you want to plant in your life? The soil is fertile. Trust.
Taurus – April 20 – May 20: The High Priestess
Woooohoooo, Taurus…. you sensual and seductive creature, the High Priestess walks beside you this month and gives you that extra boost of confidence, mystery and intuition. From the time I was very little, I was obsessed with the moon. I remember standing on my bed, holding onto the windowsill and staring at her for what seemed like hours. The moon holds that hypnotic quality over mere mortals, her beauty mesmerizing and mysterious. She also is quite powerful – controlling the tides of earth and emotions. The Moon is my version of The High Priestess….and YOU, my darling Taurus, have that mystery and hypnotic quality this month. A mere batting of your eyelash will send shivers down spines, a flick of your hip will cause of cause a flurry of trembling lust. YOU have got it, and you are going to be feelin’ it this month! Stand in your confidence and strut like a High Priestess should. You’ve got the moon in your hair and the stars in your eyes.
Question: Taurus, you intuitive Beauty….you know what it’s like when synchronicity happens, that feeling when everything is as it should be, when luck is on your side, and you are getting the signs left and RIGHT. When do you feel the most powerful and confident? How can you bring this feeling into your life more this month? Your mojo is working strong, my Love, give it a little bit more fuel and take off like a rocket to the moon.
Gemini – May 21 – June 20: The Hermit
Gemini, I’ve got this weird thing with birthdays. It’s like my very own New Year. Fuck January 1st…you know what I’m saying? Wait. Your birthday isn’t for another 2 months-ish……PERFECT. That’s why you are getting this card right now. Lemme lay it out this way…when it’s my birthday, I start to reflect on the past year, and then past years before that, and future years, and where I am, and where I want to be, and what I dream of, and the person I’ve been and who I’m becoming. It’s a whole thing. I’m guessing on some level, you do the same. And the Hermit, the cute little turtle friend that he is, is luring you in…. he’s like, “Hey, you….Gemini! Come here for a second. Give yourself a break. Settle down from running fifty thousand miles an hour, okay? Chill the fuck out. See this turtle shell? Yeah. It’s pretty awesome. Let’s go on an adventure for a second…imagine you can just retract from life for a moment, and be safe in this shell. Imagine you can spend some time asking yourself what you want….what do you dream…..who do you want to be…..where do you want to go……? Give yourself time. Give yourself a moment. See that light on top of the shell? That symbolizes your inner light. If you give yourself time, you will light up with all of your own answers. Then you can re-emerge into life and spread that calm knowing around to those around you.”
The talking turtle is wise.
Set some time aside for yourself, dear Gemini and let yourself daydream and imagine. You will find so many beautiful answers inside yourself.
Question: Time to ask yourself those questions….what do you dream of? What do you want? Where would you like to go? Don’t ask these questions with pressure. Ask them with genuine quiet interest and intrigue. Then move forward by making adjustments in your life where you see fit. Remember, dear Gemini, rockets take off from the earth to the moon with only a 20% accuracy…they have to keep checking to make adjustments. This is your sweet little adjustment moment. You’ve got this.
Cancer – June 21 – July 22: The Fool
The very first tarot deck I ever had was the Goddess Tarot. It’s a beautiful deck with goddesses replacing all the major arcana cards. The very first card in the deck is the goddess Tara, which is my beloved birth name. The Tara card was the Fool card….the start of the journey….the beginning of it all. I have always loved this card deeply and I feel like it is one of the most lucky cards of the deck. I love the picture on this Wild Unknown deck, too….the little chick, just born, full of PURE POTENTIAL. That’s where you are, Cancer. That’s where I want your mindset to be this month. Let me tell you a little story, and I want you to picture it like you are here with me…..okay? Grab my hand……
I woke up in the middle of the night last night. Without even thinking, I got out of bed, pulled on my coat, and went for a walk among the trees in the mountain. It is where I feel safe. It is where I feel like my mind can be quiet. Now….I looked up at one point, and saw all the stars above me and took in the vastness of the sky on this crisp night….and I thought….wow. I’m alive right now. I’m alive and I exist in this world, and I can write the story of my life….. I can start a new gorgeous day tomorrow and a new good adventure with this new month of April. It was almost like a baptism of the moon over my heart and my spirit. I take this walk with you now, and the two of us sit on my favorite rock in the mountains and we stare at the night sky. We think of all of the dreams that stir in our hearts and I squeeze your hand, because anything is possible. And fuck the obstacles. Fuck them.
I don’t believe in obstacles. I believe in You.
Question: When I whisper to you of your wildest and purest potential…..what gorgeous images come to your mind? Let them flow….don’t censor them, don’t turn them into what other people want to see, don’t judge them, let them just morph into the beautiful creatures that they want to be. There’s a feeling of newness in the air for you…throw yourself into the journey that your heart has been dreaming of. It’s time.
Leo – July 23 – August 22: The Sun
Lovely Leo, for the first time this year….a mere four days ago, something lovely happened. I was walking down a street in Brooklyn with my little chihuahua friend, Niney, and as I turned a corner, the sun was in my face. For the first time I can remember in what seemed like forever, the sun was warm on my skin. The feeling was so beautiful it stopped me in my tracks….and there I stood, on a busy Brooklyn street, completely still, eyes closed, face tilted toward the sun with my chihuahua by my side. Those brief moments in the sun that day, warmed my heart for the rest of the afternoon. I had a spring in my step, knowing the sun is shortly returning to me. When I get this card, dear Leo, I think of the sun living in my chest. Can you imagine how good that would feel? That’s you, Babe. You know when you get a crush on someone so hard you feel like you are glowing from the inside out? That’s you, Lover. You know when wild ideas you have start to work and weave themselves in your life and your heart starts fluttering like a bird’s wings? Yep….YOU. This month.
The rays of the sun shall reach your heart and warm it. You will find yourself being the “light” in every room you walk into. You will be irresistible. You will have the power to make some girl in Brooklyn stop in her tracks and tilt her face towards you as the world rushes around her. Do you know what I’m saying? As John Lennon sang, “We all shine on….” Feel that shiny, glittery, gorgeousness of you….and then shine it to everyone around you and bask in the warmth.
Question: Dear Leo, when is the last time that you felt warmed from the inside out? What makes you feel like you are “on fire”? Go after things that make you feel lovely this month, the things that make you warm, the things that hold your heart in an embrace like the sun.
Virgo – August 23 – September 22: The Hierophant
My Virgo Love, the raven sits upon the “key of knowledge” as it is struck by the colorful lightning strike that can only be known as “a-ha”! You know what I’m talking about…..that moment when you get it, the moment when all makes sense. If you’ve been feeling lost, then let me tell you what the Raven wants to communicate. Now…my sweet Grandma Helen always interpreted this card’s story as “the teacher and the guide”. And the best part about the way she interpreted it, was not only was this card saying…. it is time to find your teacher and guide to grow towards your future….but it was also an acknowledgment that YOU, my darling Virgo, have some serious things to teach others as well…..and that you must be open to being in your power as a guide as well.
When my life gets uncertain or wild or shifted, one of the things that will make me snap back into it is throwing myself into a schedule. For many years, when I was regularly in the city, before I was touring everywhere like a wild thing, I regularly attended a New Moon Circle that Barbara Biziou held every month. Having a regular practice, and having a teacher and guide in Barbara as I was making so many changes in my life, really helped me grow. I also started to see my own natural strengths and discover how I could help others. I really wanted to help other women feel confident and kickass and take back their own sensual natures. That’s why I decided to start my classes online and in NYC this month. It is SO important to find your teachers and guides in this life, and also find what YOU have to offer others at the same time.
Question: My Virgo Friend, what teacher or guide are you seeking out right now? If you could close your eyes and have a teacher appear before you…..what would they teach you? What are you in need of right now? It is time for you to seek that teacher. Also, what do you feel like comes to you naturally that you can help others learn? How can you guide others? When your heart is open to helping others, the ones who will help you will arrive in your life. A brand new journey of teaching and learning awaits you.
Libra – September 23rd – October 22nd: 6 of Cups
Lovely Libra, the one story that this card wants you to always remember is that you are made up of more than you realize. Your “roots” hold color and vibrance under the surface. I remember being in Florida during a massive hurricane and flying down the empty highway in my beat-up Camaro as the wind blew so hard, the palm trees were almost sideways. The thing about palm trees is that their roots are so strong, those skinny trees can actually stand huge winds and still not budge. The 6 of Cups reminds me of that. The 6 of Cups tells you to indulge for a moment in the sweetness and kind memories of the past. There can be a power in nostalgia if you look back at the beautiful things that have made up your life. These same things are what you can lean on when the wind wants to blow you over….you can root into the memory and strength of your past. And if you look back, and you start to miss someone from your past who is no longer here physically or is no longer in your life (whether they have moved or you’ve lost touch), remember that their story and their good influence on your life is still wrapped within your roots making you stronger against the storm.
In a recent diary post, I talked about the importance of 8 and 80. This is my idea that we always need to check in with our inner 8 year old and make sure that they are giving the thumbs up for what we are doing in our lives and then at the same time, making sure our 80 year old versions of us are psyched about the stories that they will get to tell. The 6 of Cups can be something like this. Visit with your inner 8 year old….they are still alive and well, just part of those gorgeous roots of yours….feed them with adventure and love.
Question: The 6 of Cups holds the positive memories, the memories passed from one generation to another. What great gifts have previous generations given you and what gifts can you pass down?
Scorpio – October 23 – November 21: 6 of Pentacles
Scorpio, the 6 of Pentacles talks of good fortune coming into your life. Just like on the card in the photo, this fortune comes to you in something you’ve grown yourself….something you’ve worked for and now you are starting to see some things come to fruition. My darling, you also have known what it was like to struggle before things have turned your way. Many times in life, we have been on the “good end” of money and finances and abundance, and also on the “bad end”. If right now you are finding yourself on a lucky streak with abundance coming to you through your work, it’s time to reach back to someone who might be struggling and lend a hand. The more I live in this world, the more I realize all the ways we have such an effect on each other. I believe as we grow we can help others and the cycle can continue for all of us to be able to feel what it feels like to be successful on our own terms, doing things that we love for a living.
Imagine this…..someone walks up to you and gives you 10 million dollars…..but the catch is – you can’t spend it on yourself, you have to help others with the money. Who would you help?
Okay, now….you might not have 10 million dollars….but you can still help someone just as if you did. You’re creative, Scorpio, keep your eyes open…and the answer to that last question….there’s someone out there whose life you can make better just with a hand out in care. Who will it be? I promise your act of kindness will enrich all.
Question: Scorpio, a few weeks ago, I passed by my first apartment in the city. When I lived there, I had one thin winter coat. As I drove my car past that old familiar stoop, I yelled, “In the future you have FIVE winter coats, it’s going to be OKAY!” I have often fantasized about being able to wrap one of my coats up and bring it back to that stoop and hope it can time travel back to the old me who needed it. What would you bring back in time for Old You to make his/her life better? IS there a way that you can do that act of kindness for someone right now who might need it?
Sagittarius – November 22 – December 21: The Hanged Man
My darling Sagittarius….I must admit that when I pull this bat friend out of the deck, it generally comes at a time where I am feeling a bit stuck in my life…..and I am always grateful that this card comes to me with its unique message:
“Time to look at things from a new perspective.”
The Hanged Man in a traditional deck always has a calm look on his face….the world has been rushing him, or pushing him to make decisions and take certain paths. He decides to take “a break” for a moment and meditates hanging upside down on the tree. Sometimes when we’re feeling stuck or confused, it’s hard to see things as they really are…..the Hanged Man flips the world upside down, and then by looking at things from a new perspective, everything starts to make sense. Also, it should be noted, that after the bat takes his break and looks at things in a new perspective, he unfolds his big beautiful wings and SOARS…. this is you this month, dear Sagittarius.
When Burke and I were writing Revolver, we felt like we had it finished and it worked. We showed the early version of the script to several people and everyone had a completely different opinion on how to fix it or change it. It became overwhelming trying to figure out what to do. We went back to it six months later, and because we gave ourselves a break and distanced ourselves from the writing for a moment, we were able to read it with new eyes and see the parts that really worked and the parts that didn’t. We had new perspective by giving it a break for a moment and coming back to it. We easily fixed it and completed the story that had all of our friends saying “THIS IS IT!” Sometimes you just need a break to be able to see exactly what you have!
Question: Never fear, Sagittarius, the Hanged Man is a welcomed card! For he is wise, gives himself a break, and finds a new way to look at things to proceed. What in your life would you like a “New Perspective” on? This month will help you open to new ideas and new creativity simply by looking at regular life a bit differently.
Capricorn – December 22 – January 19: Ace of Cups
Oh my Love, Capricorn….this month delivers you a goblet of opportunity. This, my darling, is the magic elixir. It is offered to you with love, and when you take a sip, you feel your heart open in your chest to all the “New Beginnings” that you have before you. The ace always stands for new beginnings. The cups are rooted in emotions – love and creativity. Get ready to fall in love in a deep, deep level with your current relationship or with a new version of your creative work. Your emotions are open and close to the surface, which is a beautiful moment for creative work – writing, painting, performing, dancing….you can’t go wrong this month.
By sipping the Ace of Cups, your world will “open”. The things that you have been wishing for will be coming toward you….your “magnet” will be ON, and you will easily find yourself doing the right things in life, rather than standing aside and contemplating what you should do. When I started doing burlesque, I remember having a great idea for a comedy burlesque piece that involved a fake mouse, a chair and me in a 1950s housewife outfit. I loved the concept of it and kept trying to push it to work for me. I went through the motions of it, but I guess in the end, it wasn’t really my style. When I sat with myself, when I was open to what I truly wanted to do, I knew I wanted to do classic “slow burn” style burlesque. That’s what everything about me wanted to do….and once I started down that road, it all seemed easy, it came to me easy, rather than pushing something that I though might be good but wasn’t me. So that slow burn style was my sip of the Ace of Cups….my real emotion overflowing and being brought to the stage…..real, true and powerful. Relish every sip!
Question: Get ready to feel that falling in love feeling! Whether it’s with a partner or with your creative work – it is coming! What things do you feel most “in love” with in your life right now? What do you want to bring into your life? Take a sip of that Ace of Cups….and let the world know what you want….it will start coming to you this month.
Aquarius – January 20 – February 18: Father Of Pentacles
My Sweet Aquarius, just look at this card! That Father of Pentacles is bold and TAKING OVER. This is your month to really step into your leadership style, my darling. Let me tell you the story of this powerful Father of Pentacles….he is able to “go for it” in all that he does this month, and everything he touches turns to gold. People look up to the Father of Pentacles as someone who knows what the hell they are doing and is an authority figure. The cool thing about this Father of Pentacles, is that he also is really supportive of others who are looking to do their dreams. He offers support and encouragement to those around him who are looking to make a change, take a leap and throw themselves into their wild hearted whims. He is someone to depend on, and he is seen as a leader of his friends. His success and abundance grows with every passing day, and those around him celebrate as well because he always supports and celebrates them.
Read that one more time, Aquarius. He is YOU this month.
Doesn’t that feel good? Doesn’t that description feel good? I mean, look at that card. You are there….stunning, in charge, and glowing with all the potential you have and all the things you put into action and DO. #getitgetit
Question: Imagine you’ve been cast in a play as the Father of Pentacles. How would you play this magnificent creature? What would you go after in your life with the determination to succeed? What would you like to turn into “gold” in your life? How can you support the dreams as others as well? If you have any doubt this month, look at this card, and push forward! <3
Pisces – February 19 – March 20: Two of Pentacles.
Darling Pisces….there’s a story about how butterflies come out of the cocoon that I want to share with you. Did you know that when a butterfly larvae is in the cocoon, their whole world is just mush until they start to form into this beautifully colored creature with wings. Then the butterfly starts to pound its wings against the sides of the cocoon to escape. For quite some time, the butterfly just keeps pounding its wings over and over against the sides of the cocoon. And finally, once the butterfly has strong enough wings, the cocoon is broken and the butterfly soars. I think of this story whenever I’m going through a moment of struggle, because I think of that butterfly in me, getting ready to soar in a moment. Through work and personal change, the soaring will start to happen and the real fun begins.
The two of Pentacles is about having a perfect balance between work and play and being able to balance the things that come at you. If things change, you can handle it like a boss, and keep moving on to a new adventure. The two of Pentacles is ready to bring the fun in, it’s ready to “go with the flow”, it’s being in touch with that side of us that’s flexible and ready for good adventures.
Question: My Lovely Pisces….how can you find more balance in your life? Make sure you are giving yourself time to “play” and time to “work”. How can you let go and have more flow in your life? Get ready for some calm and beautiful balance with a gorgeous touch of fun this month!
