Every month I pick a tarot deck out of my collection and pick 12 cards from that correlate to each sign of the zodiac. This is #crushascope for February 2018.    

January ended with a very intense supermoon in Leo that forced you to look in the mirror and face truths you were trying to hide. This hit the Cardinal signs the worst. Looking at you Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. This shed light on self-worth as well as your relationships.

We aren’t done yet though. Just like Oprah giving away free Bees, The Solar Eclipse on February 15th, will come with a happier yet just as intense follow-up to the emotional shitshow that was the Lunar Eclipse / Super / Blood / Moon.

You have to take back control of your emotional state this month. Establishing relationships with people that matter is key. You have a lot of shifts happening in the relationship department. You have a strong desire to connect with like minded people after making new discoveries about yourself. Do not be intimidated by social outings.  


You are questioning if all the hard work you are putting yourself through is worth it. You will get the clarity you need on your goal making in the middle of the month. Perhaps, it is time to work on something new. Maybe you are too stressed out at the moment and need to take a step back. Definitely consider listing out your goals and comparing them your routine to see what works and what needs to change.  


Confidence takes center stage. You need to let the world know who they are dealing with. You have a renewed inspiration with yourself. It’s time to get creative and show yourself off. This is also a good month to reveal to others how you really feel. Perhaps it is time to let your crush know what’s what.


You rethink how to reach your goals. You will be adulting more than you have ever adulted before. Your budget takes center stage this month. You decide to redistribute your wealth and get clarity on how to maximize on saving. Taking on some freelance or side jobs can also lead to something more lucrative for you. Don’t be shocked if you get an offer out of thin air.


Your nervous system is in overdrive. Self care is so important. You really need to be your own Valentine this month. Why are you so hard on yourself? Embrace your vulnerability and let people in who can help you. Crying is good and remember you are only human. Do not over extend yourself to those who take advantage.


Too much on your plate? Work/life balance may be totally off. Make a schedule that is realistic and ensures you spend time with loved ones. You may need to raise your worth when it comes to work. Is the effort you are putting in worth the amount of money you are making? Pay attention to how many hours of sleep you are getting.      


Reach out to others you need to make peace with. It’s been nagging you like a thorn in your side. Get that closure you need in order to make peace with yourself. Your words can be alchemical, meaning you can turn shit talk into gold if your heart is in the right place. For those with relationships on the rocks, fear not, things get better and brighter after the 15th.   


2018 may not be started out like you had planned. Patience is required. Put away self doubts. Things are just moving ever so slowly because you will have major shifts in career coming. You just have to make the right connections and put in the right amount of work and intent to make it happen. Just remember it will happen.        


Think of your home as an extension of your physical body. You will come to realize that the way you treat people is a reflection of how you treat yourself. Mirroring becomes a major theme for you. You will come to study your relationships and your surroundings to see what nurtures you vs. what is stifling you. You may realize that you could be self-sabotaging and need to remedy that asap.  


Begin to rewrite your history. You find a new respect for yourself. You are overcoming bad habits and owning up to your own stupid mistakes. You make a commitment to fix them so that you can attract better things into your life. Walk away from anything in your past that has let you down. You deserve better because you are better.


It might be in your best interest to stay out of issues that do not concern you. People will try to pull you into their drama but it is best to stay out of it. You have the strong urge to help others in pain but think of yourself first. Do not get accidentally placed in the crosshairs of someone else’s problems. Be social but make your boundaries known.  


You are facing drama, gossip, and more drama. Compassion is key to getting rid of this negative chain. It is up to you to transform your sadness into something positive. Allow yourself to cry it out and learn from the past. You could also benefit from turning shit into gold if you seek the right road on how to get there.
