Janet's monthly AstroTarot Forecast reads the energies surrounding your life according to your Astrological Sun Sign and the Snowland Deck by Ron and Janet Boyer. These general readings show the energetic landscape of your current situation and life path. You may want to read the card drawn for your Ascendant (Rising Sign) and your Moon Sign, as well, since they are also influential forces in your psyche. The AstroTarot Forecast may be used for meditation, contemplation and illumination Because Janet re-shuffles and draws for every Zodiac Sign, it's possible that more than one Sign will share the same card—although the interpretation will be different.

Fiery Aries, whatever you’ve been contemplating, it’s time to point your magic wand and “make it so”. Rest assured you have all the tools needed to bring your idea into fruition. However, you may find that you lack focus, so make a concerted effort to laser in on desired outcomes or goal completion. Never mind if it “hasn’t been done before”. Apply your will, use your unique talents, call upon your support system (earthly and/or spiritual) and launch that baby out into the world.
Earthy Taurus, this month calls for examination, precision and analysis. Before signing any documents, make sure every “I” is dotted and every “T” is crossed. If you don’t understand something, don’t gloss over it or make assumptions. Instead, investigate all options, scenarios and circumstances surrounding an issue or project. Hindsight may be 20/20, but you don’t want to wait until presumption goes to seed lest you reap a field of headaches in the end.
Airy Gemini, make way for the snowplow of life to come cleaning your sidewalks this month! Any psychological, religious or emotional structures built on “wood, hay or straw” will burn with the fires of change and raw truth. Rather than resist or deny reality, embrace “what is”. Not only will your suffering be lessened, but you’ll also see a clear path to what is authentic, solid and enduring—the “gold, silver and precious stones” of life. In a hurry for “out with the old”? Call on Ganesh, the Remover of Obstacles, for quick removal.
Watery Cancer, it’s time for alchemy! Just as sidewalk salt melts slippery ice and residual snow, so, too, can applied metaphysical arts and spiritual practices catalyze what is frozen or cold in your life. Prayer, chanting, mantras, yoga, visualization, mindful divination—all of these things can bring a sense of warmth and inclusion to a world-weary soul. Don’t swing too far to one extreme or another, choosing, instead, to walking the middle path of sobriety. Remember: you’re a spiritual being having a physical experience…not the other way around.
Fiery Leo, you may have bitten off more than you can chew. Are you busier than a one-armed octopus with hives? Spread so thin you’re starting to resemble the invisible woman? Carrying so much that you this far from the breaking point? That’s what I thought. It’s time to delegate tasks, unshoulder burdens and take a breather. (And don’t say you don’t have time, either; I heard what you were thinking!) There’s a time and place for being a workhorse, but right now, it’s much better for you to work smart than work hard. There’s no shame in asking for help, and you’ll find trusted friends and family more than willing to come to your aid this month.
Airy Libra, the wind of charity is blowing through this month, so consider volunteering in ways that you find meaningful. Donating unused clothes to Goodwill, serving meals at the soup kitchen, helping at the animal shelter, babysitting for a frazzled single Mom, running errands for shut-ins, contributing your expertise to a non-profit—there are many ways to be a blessing and, in turn, be blessed.
Earthy Virgo, your meticulousness and desire for perfection may be frustrated this month, especially if you’re experiencing material difficulty, religious disillusionment or financial setbacks. You want to put it right, but feel at a loss. When in doubt, make amends, provide a listening ear or offer a smile. All of these can help to alleviate the suffering of others and restore balance. By tending to the wounds of others, so, too, shall you be restored. Remember the butterfly wings: one small flutter may cause a windstorm half a world away…so there is no “small” act of kindness and compassion.
Watery Scorpio, it’s time for you to kick back, relax and enjoy an emotional sabbatical. Even if you can’t take a cruise, fly to Paris or head for the beach, there are still ways for you to bring a holiday atmosphere to your work area or home. For example, pine oil can bring an aromatherapeutic forest into your environment. Do you wish you could visit an amusement park, even though it’s 20 F outside? Buy yourself a CD of calliope or Wurlitzer organ music to resemble carousel music. Alternatively, put up posters or postcards of your favorite (or dream) destinations. Remember: vacation is a state of mind.
Fiery Sagittarius, it’s time to try something new! Take bold, big risks this month for maximum enjoyment and return on investment. Overhaul your personal style, get a life coach, enroll in school, embark on a different career—whatever you’ve been longing to do, but allowed the little voice of fear talk you out of it, begs for your attention this month. No guts, no glory—so get on that sled and slide down the steepest hill you can find!
Earthy Capricorn, you’re no stranger to order, but this month calls on you to erect boundaries, say what you mean and mean what you say. If you’ve been a pushover to your detriment, it’s time to value yourself and declare, “enough is enough”. There’s nothing wrong with knowing what you want and where you want to go. Protect what matters to you—time, health, relationships, creativity, projects, and so on—and tell the psychic vampires to suck off.
Airy Aquarius, you may find yourself wanting to hibernate energetically, removing yourself from the crowds that you normally adore. Unhook the broadband, stay off Facebook, turn off the smartphone and unplug the TV. Trust me, you’re not going to miss anything or die from a few days (or a week?) of social celibacy. Besides, this month holds some rich wisdom goodies for you—but only if you go inside.
Watery Pisces, you tend to pretend you’re on stage…but only in your dreams. However, this month, consider actually strutting your stuff for the world to see. Attend an open mic to read your poetry, donate a piece of your art to the public library, volunteer to read books at a rest home, sing in a choir, record a comedic video to put on YouTube, give a piano recital—there are many ways to express your unique creative flair…and the world is richer for the witnessing.
