Instead of my usual Tarotscope for the month I felt drawn to work with my Healing Angel Cards (Doreen Virtue) for December. As December holds the anniversary of the birth of Jesus, I thought a message from the Angels would benefit not only those of the Christian faith but also those who believe there is more to this life than we are aware of. Whatever your belief or your faith I hope that your card brings you a message to carry with you into 2020. It comes with love. X
ARIES: (Mar 21 - Apr 20) ”Retreat”
“Retreat” may indicate that taking a step back from the stresses and strains of your daily life may be what’s best for you this month Aries. Perhaps you’ve been overdoing it by shouldering all the responsibility for making the festive season joyful for others but neglecting your own wellbeing. Do what you can to delegate as others may be only too happy to help when asked. Make time for a massage, nail treatment, meet up for a cuppa and cake with friends, anything that gives you quality “time out.” Retreat may also relate to calming your mind by retreating to a quiet, peaceful space, settling in a comfy chair or laying on your bed, closing your eyes and breathing deeply. Why not make this a New year resolution? You deserve it.
TAURUS: (Apr 21 - May 21) “Miracles”
A beautiful card and one which has the potential to bring you your own personal miracle in December Taurus. You may have been asking the Angels to intercede on your behalf in a stressful situation, for physical, emotional or mental healing for you or someone you love. You may have been experiencing relationship difficulties, financial hardship, family problems. Whatever the reason causing your stress and anxiety your pleas for help have been heard and answered with a miracle granted with celestial love. There may be good news causing a celebration from a close member of the family regarding a forthcoming event in 2020. You will end this month happier and more content that you may have felt for some time. Your own Christmas miracle!
GEMINI: (May 22 - June 21) “Archangel Michael”
Archangel Michaels name means “He who is as God” and he is the Chief of all the Angels. He is concerned chiefly with protection, truth, integrity, courage and strength. If you need assistance with any of these, he is the Angel you should summon. Seeing him in your mind or feeling a sense of comfort or warmth lets you know he is with you. As this is the card drawn for you Gemini for this final month of 2019 draw comfort from it, knowing that whatever, or whoever, is troubling you can be overcome and defeated by calling on Michael to wield his mighty sword to achieve justice on your behalf. Direct your prayers and calls for help directly to him and experience his presence at your side, sword drawn, ready to battle.
CANCER: (June 22 - July 22) “Meditation”
It appears that meditating is something you should be planning to integrate into your life this month and for the future Cancer. If you haven’t already done so, now would be the time to seek out like-minded souls and organise something on a regular basis. You may have a very busy, stressful life and meditation could be just what you need for balance and to keep you sane! As a Water sign you are a gentle soul so, when conflict or stress of any kind, rears their ugly heads, you dive for cover under that shell of yours. Learning to meditate will help you take it all in your stride just by regulating your breathing and helping you find your calm. It could be your personal “secret weapon” and one which you can switch on at will.
LEO: (July 23 - Aug 21) ”New Beginnings”
A beautiful card to take you into a brand-new year Leo. How exciting! Just what it says on the box. You have the potential to create your own new beginnings and/or experience those that come your way this month. If you’ve been considering striking out on your own in launching a business, proposing marriage, trying for a baby, changing career or aiming for a better job, etc. etc., then now’s your chance. The Angels are telling you what’s possible, but it may be up to you to put things in motion. After all, we know that unfortunately, “opportunity” doesn’t come knocking on the door. Oh, that it did! No, it will take your strength and determination to create your dreamt of new beginnings or have the foresight to grab any new opportunities offered with both hands. Up to you Leo!
VIRGO: (Aug 22 - Sep 23) ”Nature”
I believe our beautiful Earth Mother Gaia epitomises nature. She creates beauty for our eyes to feast upon, nourishes and shelters us. This wonderful card asks that you allow her gifts to nurture you by returning to nature. Perhaps in the hustle and bustle of family and work responsibilities you’ve become trapped so your ability to just “breathe” has gradually become stifled. Reconnecting with the great outdoors is the restorative tonic you need, and the good news is that it’s free! Trees and water are especially beneficial in promoting calm and peace. Find a forest ideally with a stream or river running through it. Sit on Mother Earth’s lap the good earth, back up against a tree, beside water and ask Gaia for her blessing. Get into the habit of revisiting nature when you feel in need of comfort and restoration. Gaia will welcome you with open arms.
LIBRA: (Sep 24 - Oct 23) “Study”
Studying is a means to open new doors Libra and this is the path you should be considering if you haven’t already done so. If you’ve been neglecting your studies in previous weeks/months, then it’s not too late to buckle down and get back on track. Considering a course of study, no matter how old you are, could inspire you in achieving goals perhaps put aside some years ago due to life’s obstacles. This is the right time to recover and dust off those dreams and do something about making them a reality. Whatever course you decide to follow ensure it’s something that you can stick to, not something you start, get fed up because it’s a commitment, and bin. Whatever you do, should excite and have you planning how and where best utilise your new skills, especially if it relates to benefitting other people. Life is an ongoing lesson. Use what you have already learned in enriching your life for the future.
SCORPIO: (Oct 24 – Nov 22) “Body Care”
Probably not the most appropriate month to consider a diet or means of making the most of your body Scorpio, what with the Christmas festivities to enjoy. However, this card could be an indication that you need to prioritise your physical health and wellbeing sooner rather than later. This could be related to shifting some pounds, taking more exercise and adapting your unhealthy eating habits to healthier options. By all means enjoy your festive season but commit to changing your lifestyle to create a healthier you, physically, emotionally and mentally as soon as the clock strikes midnight on December 31st. You are solely responsible for your own body. You look after your vehicle, don’t you? Regular MOTs? Repairs when necessary? So why wouldn’t you show the same love, care and attention to your own “vehicle” i.e. your body? Just common sense really.
SAGITTARIUS: (Nov 23 - Dec 22) “Listening”
As a lovely Fire sign Sagittarius, you’re not one to stand still long enough to listen. However, this beautiful card asks that you stay still long enough to pay attention to anyone around you who needs you to listen to what they have to say. Someone close may be trying to deal with a problem or stressful situation alone and you’ve not noticed because of your busy lifestyle. Take a look around. See him/her. On the other hand, perhaps you need the Angels to listen to you? If so, reach out to them with what’s troubling you. They’re not allowed to intercede if you haven’t given them permission. This card is your assurance that they are around, ready to listen and intercede on your behalf, only needing your say so to act.
CAPRICORN: (Dec 23 - Jan 20) ”Answered Prayer”
A very special card indeed for you Capricorn and one which is very powerful in its message. It acknowledges your need for a miracle at this particular time in your life and the granting of it. This year may have been particularly stressful for you with many problems, difficulties and trials so, being aware of this, the Angels may be assuring you that, through all the dark times, they’ve been around you with their celestial presence and sending you healing. This answered prayer may not be experienced in December, but rest assured it will come when the Angels deem its timing to be the most appropriate. They ask that you grant yourself peace of mind in the knowledge that their gift to you will arrive when you need it most.
AQUARIUS: (Jan 21 - Feb 19) “Friendship”
This card asks that you arrange to spend and time with and enjoy the company of your friends this month Aquarius. It may also be a “heads up” to reconnect with friends that, for whatever reason, you may have lost touch with over the past year. They may have missed you too and welcome the opportunity to meet up and reminisce over old times. True friendships don’t mean living in each other’s pockets but just being aware that you’re always there for each other no matter what. Take steps to heal any broken relationships with friends you may have come to regret losing. There is also the potential of reclaiming your friendship with yourself. Occasionally, we can be our own worst enemy and harder than ourselves than others could or would be. If you’re guilty of this, then resolve to be kinder and more forgiving of yourself. You’re a lovely person with a beautiful spirit Aquarius so celebrate that.
PISCES: (Feb 20 - March 20) ”Trust”
Oh Pisces, you tend to trust too easily and sometimes it all ends in tears doesn’t it? As a Water sign you possess a very soft heart which has the potential to be easily wounded by the sharp words or actions of others. Perhaps you can relate to events in the recent past? However, this is a card of hope, asking you not to lose faith in the decency of most people. Unfortunately, there are people in life who will cause you misery or heartbreak whether knowingly or not. It’s the same for everyone. The Angels have given you the card of “Trust” which asks you to do just that. It speaks of learning to trust again, not lumping everyone together as not to be trusted and potentially losing out on a wonderful relationship. Enjoy December and determine to focus on regaining your trust in the goodness of your fellow man, or woman, going forward into 2020.
