Episode 36: New Moon in Aquarius, The Star and Seven of Pentacles Celebrate New Moon Magick (there's a playlist for that), ripe with new beginnings. Ride the wave of an innovative spark thanks to this moon's placement in Aquarius, a sign celebrated for trailblazing and dreaming big for the benefit of the greater good. We dive into the symbolism of the Star card and celebrate its special place among the two cards that follow it in the Tarot: The Moon and The Sun. I reference a previous episode that highlights the Star card, and you're welcome to give it a listen: Episode 11. Full Moon in Aquarius: Licking Our Wounds In Leo Season.
We reflect on our personal growth since the recent Full Moon in Cancer, and explore the symbolism of the Tarot card that literally jumped out during my shuffle: Seven of Pentacles, a card that encourages us to consider what we've built so far, and where we want to go with our efforts. Do we want to keep doing what we're doing, or are we ready to change things up?

Episode 33. Gemini Season: Don't Throw Shade on the 'Grade Gemini season is here, sweet Friends. Here's a little mantra for us this season: "If you see something, say something." We've got Mercury in Gemini through June 22 and during that time, Mercury is retrograde from May 29 - June 21. As I mentioned in my blog post "Mercury in Gemini: Get Your Mind Right," this is an invitation to celebrate communication in all of its forms, and truly slow our role and benefit from the reflective energies of this retrograde season. It's also an important time to speak up about injustices in all their forms. In the spirit of "If you see something, say something," by all means, share the wealth about the good, juicy stuff and shout out great resources you admire. I am so pleased to give shout outs to peeps who have helped me grow and learn the intricacies inherent in deciphering astrology:
Jessica Lanyadoo of Ghost of a Podcast. Her recent interview with Tony Howard of Astrology University is outstanding and shines light on Mars out of bounds.
Renee Sills of Embodied Astrology. Her subscriber offerings are off the chain and by far, the best deal in town.
My beloved and wise astrology teacher Monte Farber of the Enchanted World. You can sign up for his online classes on Soultopia.
Fellow Long Islander Colin Bedell of Queer Cosmos
We also explore The Lovers card in the Tarot in this episode and how we can lean on this card to help us make more life affirming choices. If you'd like to dig deeper into the Lovers card and how it associates with the sign of Gemini, listen to Episode 5. Gemini Season: The Lovers, The Dreamers and You and Me.
Getting something good out of this podcast? I'd so appreciate a five star review from you on your favorite listening platform and share it up with your friends.

Episode 32. Full Supermoon in Scorpio and Exploring Planetary Placements Here's a little mini episode / experiment on the eve of this Pink Supermoon in Scorpio: we're exploring some of the current planetary placements and forecasting what these might feel like for us. Let's cast out our lines and check 'em out:&nbsp;
Pluto in Capricorn: 2008 - 2024 (Pluto retrograde from April 27 - October 6). Forecast: We'll be revisiting rules, restrictions and structures to see if they are truly working on both micro and macro levels
Mars in Cancer: April 23 - June 11. Expect quite a bit of velocity behind emotions (for better or for worse)
Mercury in Gemini: May 3 - June 22 (Retrograde from May 29 - June 21). While not in retrograde, innovative thinking and communication, with perhaps a splash of spunk thanks to trickster Mercury. While in retrograde, doubling down on revisiting all things mercurial: communication, thought patterns, linguistics, writing.
Venus in Gemini: May 8 - June 2. Comfort in communication, ease-filled thinking, smooth cognition.
Jupiter in Pisces: May 13 - July 28. Expansive intuition, big intuitive hits. A great time to learn a divination skill or polish one you already know and love. You might enjoy my free online Tarot class where we study the significance of the number five and the corresponding cards in the Tarot. Enroll for free!
Last but not least: The first Pink Full Supermoon of 2021 occurs in Scorpio on April 26: Big feelings, intensified emotions, perhaps uncovering areas of emotional wounding. Also the potential for extra sexy activity (thank you, Scorps!)
Let's monitor how my mini forecasts play out over these next several weeks. You are welcome to share your feedback in a message or by voicemail.&nbsp;
Interested in exploring how the sign of Scorpio corresponds to the Death card in the Tarot? Listen to these episodes:
Episode 16: New Moon in Scorpio, Grief and Transformation
Episode 15: Scorpio Season, The Death Card and Full Moon in Taurus
Episode 4: Goodnight, Supermoon...The Last Full Supermoon of 2020: Scorpio, Transformation and Grief
Giveaway! Would you like to win a free 45 minute virtual Tarot and astrology reading with me? Enter my contest through May 3. Winner chosen at random and announced on May 4.
My deepest gratitude to Pete Calgaro for creating my unique intro music that you'll hear at the beginning of this podcast. It is so intriguing and beautiful and captures my Urban Siren persona perfectly! I had the pleasure of recording an Instagram live IGTV episode with Pete during which he played the Native American Style flute and I read a poem in honor of Earth Day. Catch the replay.&nbsp;

Episode 31. Taurus Season: Being in the Body, The Hierophant, and Examining Spiritual Bypass This is an anniversary episode of sorts to Episode 2 which kicked off my recording sessions during the advent of COVID19 in the Spring of 2020. I find myself reflecting on where I was mentally, emotionally and physically this time last year. Coming into Taurus season feels different this year: I have a year's worth of experience coping with all that COVID19 brought into my life. As an Earth sign, Taurus invites us into our bodies and to be present with the Earth itself. As the sun enters the sign of Taurus on April 19, and the planet Mercury (think: communication) will enter the sign of Taurus on this day as well, this Taurus season is an especially powerful time to reflect on how we relate to ourselves, our planet, our fellow sentient and non-sensient Earth mates, and how we might embody our outward and internal dialogue. We examine The Hierophant card as it relates to the sign of Taurus, and review ways we might better navigate any tendencies to engage in spiritually bypassing. Pictured in my episode art along with The Hierophant card from the Smith-Rider-Waite Tarot deck is the Spiritual Bypass card from Jordan Hope Miller's beautiful 33 Masters Oracle Deck. Here are a few words from Jordan's deck booklet describing the card:
"This card comes to you as a direct sign that you are using spirituality and its concepts to escape a reality that you created for yourself. The ego mind is capable of distorting knowledge, and in this case it is protecting you from a part of your journey that is Earthly. Being authentic and starting from where you are, and not from where you want to be will help you to become more present in your process of awareness."
I absolutely love this card and highly recommend Jordan's beautiful deck as a powerful tool to help you access deeper aspects of your psyche. Check out Jordan's deck and call one home for yourself. I included this card in the episode art as well as Jordan's words because I feel they so succinctly summarize the concept of spiritual bypassing. In bringing up spiritual bypass, by no means am I passing the buck. I've engaged in spiritual bypass as a way to cope with issues in my life that seemed unmanageable and overwhelming. I remedied spiritual bypass by working on issues in real time. While the work was difficult and in some cases heartbreaking, I needed to empower myself by taking responsibility, owning my choices and committing to making necessary changes. May this episode offer you relatable encouragement to solve challenges in practical ways. Taurus season is great medicine for helping us implement practical solutions to issues that otherwise might feel out of our reach.&nbsp;
I am most delighted and deeply grateful to have Pete Calgaro in my circle of Instagram friends as he created the intro music you hear in this episode especially for my podcast! Enjoy his beautiful music and offerings on Pete's website. Be sure to follow Pete on Instagram to catch his exquisite live pan hand drum guided meditations.
Leave me a voice message with your question for the Tarot to be considered to air on an upcoming episode! Visit my website for more of my offerings including classes and connect with me on Instagram and Facebook. xox Diane
