March Feels Liminal
This month I pulled 4 major arcanas, 2 cups, 3 pentacles, 2 wands, and one sword. This is an unusually even-handed pull across all the tarot suits for a monthly tarotscope and the only reason I can think why that is is because March is often a liminal month.
March is often a space holder between the cold winter reach and the fun happy spring, we hold our breaths, waiting for the show to really, really begin. Do I have to take my jacket today? Can I wear my dress? Are my plants safe outside? The days are getting longer but things are not quite in full swing just yet.
Party like it's your birthday (cause it is!) The Magician arrives and asks you what you wish for, within realistic limits, it looks like you might actually get it. In fact, this is the month of the overreach; take a risk, reach just a little higher, longer for that job thats just a bit out of your league, that cutie that is just a little hotter than you normally go for, the heels one inch higher than your norm. Boosted by the energy of the Magician, anything is possible, Go. For. It.
Aries—10 of Cups
March asks that you stay close to home and attend to matters of family. If you are sandwiched between caretaking between generations you are being asked to lean into the task of being the glue that holds everyone together. Create a special family meal, perhaps start a new tradition, there is something joyful and new and beautiful you need to make in March to bring everyone together.
Taurus—6 of Cups
This month you might find yourself reminiscing of days gone by and finding those memories joyful. In fact, you should indulge in those memories. Was there a childhood game you found on eBay that you bid on? Play it! Watch an old cartoon on Youtube, there is some memory that needs to be revisited that brings you joy that has been forgotten and needs to be unlocked. For some reason, my intuitive sense is telling me that this is important for something later on. Do not fear going into the past.
Uh oh...the appearance of the Tower is often what I call "the last straw" card; meaning, the straw that breaks the camel's back. In any area of your life: health, work, romance, friendship, if there has been anything hanging on by a thread and you have not attended to dealing with, the Tower can be the TKO arriving to end that thing for you, and largely... it ain't pretty my turtle dove. Its tough and harsh, and dramatic and necessary and freeing and needed, tuck and roll, tuck and roll.
If you are trying for a baby this may be the month you concieve, if you are not trying for a baby, this may be the month you conceieve as the empress' appearance can mean hightened fertility. If that is off the table that can mean a message for you, that you deeply need to mother yourself; have you been burning the candle at both ends? Some deep self care is needed at this time. It could also mean call your Mother, she misses you.
Leo—The Wheel of Fortune
You have been riding high on a nice run of cards so far this year and I wonder if the WOF here means that things are about to take their natural turn as they do. What comes up, must come down and Fortune's favour is fickle. If your luck has been great, expect there to be a sudden reversal and vice versa this month. Don't take this personally, there is nothing you have or have not done here it's just the tides.
Virgo—Knight of Pentacles
March is a workaday month for you, Virgo. Are you trying to get debt down or save up cash for vacation? You make great progress on your financial life in March; buckle down and watch those pennies, you will be totally surprised by how many you will have by the end of the month. At work, you might feel tempted to make waves about a situation, please don't, at least not yet. You can do so later when the energy swings in your favor but for now the message is to lay low and sit on your nest, incubate those eggs!
Libra—8 of Wands
The energy this month is very much about "strike while the iron is hot" if a situation comes to you that requires immediate action or a decision, please make it! This is not the month for you to dilly dally. Yes, for just about everyone else in the zodiac this is a liminal month but oddly, not for you. Perhaps because as the balance sign a balance month means opposite? Who knows! All I know is that this is a huge card that says YES YES and GO GO GO.
Scorpio—Queen of Pentacles
This month may clarify anything you were sitting on over last month and the action that is suggested here is 'gentle forward action'. This Queen applies gentle constant pressure to all efforts, not unlike how a seedling slowly but determinedly finds its way up through the soil. This is you; take your time but don't panic, you got this. Domestic pursuits such as gardening, cooking and spring cleaning are also highlighted right now. Get your Feng Shui on fleek.
Sagittarius—4 of Swords
This has been a really odd year for you so far! January was a chill out card, last month you got a very high energy card, and now... you got another chill card; 4 of swords literally means "rest". I swear, I am not trying to encourage any unhealthy behaviors, Sag! This month you need to take it easy, perhaps you really pushed it last month or overindulged. This month ease off the gas a bit, put on cruise control, and get into the slow lane. Enjoy the scenery while you are there.
Capricorn—Knight of Wands
Knight of Wands can often mean change of job or travel for work so if you are looking for work this is a very good sign. Also if you thought you might be able to weasel your way out of going to Alaska in winter, sorry but that's on the docket for you as this card highlights work travel. If none of those apply then you might want to consider taking on the fiery work ethic of this Knight. What can or should you be doing right now to reinvigorate your occupation, how can you inflame your work with a passionate focus? This will be rewarded later on.
Aquarius—8 of Pentacles
March's liminal feeling month also saturates your energy, this is a workaday kind of month for you, too water bearer! Keep your nose to the grind and just put some miles down; projects, money, hours, all these things need focus and time. Perhaps you were frazzled or distracted before but this month is the month to make some headway. Also, if you were thinking of picking up a new hobby or side thing that is craftmanlike (woodworking?) this card highlights energy to support that right now. I know, boo, take the birthday hat off and get back to work.
