CRUSHASCOPE MARCH 2018
BY SONIA ANA ORTIZ
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 March 2018.
We have quite a crazy month! It is filled with two full moons, today and on March 31st. We also have Jupiter, the planet of luck and money, going into retrograde on March 8 all the way into October; of course Mercury, the planet of communication, follows suit on March 22 but will only last for three weeks.
2018 is proving to be a trying year on everyone’s emotions so let’s see what tarot card can help you be your best self during such a trying time!
Remember that retrogrades are great for finishing projects, forgiving others who have done you wrong, and seeing things from your past being corrected.
PISCES - FOUR OF WANDS
Your home is your sanctuary this month. You are going to be inspired to do a deep clean or think of moving from your current home – you have outgrown where you are. This is also a month that will allow you to solidify bonds with your better half. You will be extra quiet and private but that is only because you are extra receptive to everyone’s energies. Definitely stick to a strong meditative practice if you have one.
ARIES - FIVE OF SWORDS
You are picking up on shady behaviors from others. Learn to pick your battles, Aries. You may be prone to having emotional outbursts in public that could backfire on you. Choose another plan of attack. Perhaps hashing things out in private could be better for you. You're not paranoid but you have to make tough choices in order to save face.
TAURUS - IV THE EMPEROR
Standing up for yourself takes center stage during March. You have the control and the power to reset your boundaries with the people around you. Let people know they cannot take advantage of your good nature. Go deep into your feelings and find that renewed confidence that will help you get your point across. This will inspire new allies and renew hope all around.
GEMINI - KING OF WANDS
Mercury retrograde hits you this month, since it is your ruling planet. You look to others for inspiration and comfort this month. Things may hurt when you discover you have to work on personal aspects that rub others the wrong way. It may help to ask for advice from a trusted friend or colleague who has sound advice to give. Give yourself room for self-improvement. Enjoy more quiet moments of contemplation that will push you forward on your path.
CANCER - FIVE OF WANDS
Take a few steps back before you move forward. March will feel like a car crash with guns blazing. It is okay to break down in order to break through. A lesson of biting off more than you can chew may have you feeling extra sad and ashamed, but do not be hard on yourself – this only means you are growing and may need an extra pair of trusted hands to get you back on track. Also make sure you take days off. Self-care is important!
LEO - QUEEN OF PENTACLES
You’re in a great place this month to lend an ear or a hand. The Aquarius / Leo eclipses affected you hard as well. The dust will settle, and you can count your blessings. When you help others, you help yourself. Reach out to a friend in need. You have dealt with distress and had people be there for you – it is time for you to pay it forward.
VIRGO - FOUR OF SWORDS
Make time for yourself this month. It will be busy, and the Mercury retrograde may have you double booking and overextending yourself. It may leave you vulnerable to getting sick or injured. Make sure you get a daily dose of alone time for your health and sanity. Remember, it is okay to say no to too much commitment. Keep a calendar on hand before you confirm or commit to anything.
LIBRA - TEN OF PENTACLES
Money and opportunity come through during a difficult time. The Jupiter retrograde throws you a karmic bone you need. You hear back from folks who either owe you money or messed up on your paycheck. This lucky streak has potential to get you to your next endeavor, but don’t make any moves until mid-April, when Mercury comes out of retrograde. Continue to keep an eye on your budget and expenses –things can surprise you if you aren’t careful.
SCORPIO - PRINCE OF PENTACLES
Decide to go out and meet new people and try new things. You will be pleasantly surprised. You will find an old comfort in a new person. It may end up being a balancing act between your old life and new life, but it should be something you are willing to do for the sake of your happiness. Old emotional wounds heal well during Jupiter retrograde, and a renewed sense of charm will follow.
SAGITTARIUS - THREE OF STAVES
You are being stubborn about a specific goal or situation. You will find yourself hitting a wall. You need to disengage from the matter at hand and be kind to yourself. Think of your progress and look back so that you can push yourself forward. You may need to put this current frustration on the backburner for the sake of your sanity.
CAPRICORN - SIX OF CUPS
People come through asking for forgiveness and second chances. Compassion is key. You get a chance to take the high road but also set boundaries. You prefer people to be unaware of how sensitive and vulnerable you are, but you really have no choice but to put it out there this month. Friends and loved ones show up for you in a very special way. Make room for whoever you want to stay versus whoever you want gone.
AQUARIUS - ACE OF PENTACLES
You had a really rough start to your year with all those eclipses but the dust somewhat settles for you, despite the retrogrades coming your way. You start a new chapter for yourself and move forward with people who matter. Perhaps it is time to let your long time crush know how you feel or see how you can prove yourself at work so you can get a promotion or raise. The Ace of Pentacles offers a beautiful sense of renewal you desperately need. Allow for new and wonderful things to happen to you.
