Monthly Tarot Card Forecast: March 2017

Exploring your own depths
Brigit Esselmont

Hi I'm Brigit, founder of Biddy Tarot; I'm here today with our Monthly Tarot Forecast for March 2017.

Blessings card: The Moon

The Moon

The Blessing for this month is The Moon. What a fabulous card, and what a complex card as a Blessing. The Moon illuminates the shadows, so we're in the darkness of night, but we have this light of The Moon that just illuminates that whole night sky.

So think about your life right now. What is being illuminated that you may not have seen previously? This is kind of a time to explore those darker shadows in your life, or maybe even the aspects of your life that you haven't wanted to go into because you've put it into the "too hard" basket, or maybe you just haven't been ready to deal with them. This is a Blessing, so being able to shine the light on those different parts of life that you haven't yet explored is a Blessing and an opportunity for you.

Challenges card: The Hierophant

The Hierophant

So let's now move to our Challenges for March, and we have The Hierophant. Now typically The Hierophant is about the teacher and the student. With The Hierophant it's often also about following rules, or being part of a doctrine, or a philosophy, or a belief system, or a structure in the way that you're going to think. Interestingly for a lot of people who enjoy reading Tarot, perhaps like you, you might really struggle with having to follow the status quo, and follow what someone else is telling you to do. So this might be your Challenge for the month of March: There may be someone who is trying to say, "Hey, you need to think his way," and you're like, "Uh-uh, no I don't, I want to do something else!"

But I can't help but feel there is some positivity in this card, in that you might have some initial resistance to the teacher who is appearing in your life right now, but think about what they have to teach you. They are here to teach you something really positive and powerful in your life, but you need to be open-minded enough to be able to see what that is. So even though this is a Challenge, think about how you can flip that over and turn it into an opportunity for yourself this month.

Recommended Action card: Queen of Cups

Queen of Cups

Now finally, our Recommended Action is brought to you by the Queen of Cups. The Queen of Cups is such a beautiful card. She has this gorgeous energy where she is deeply connected to her emotions and her intuition, and yet she's also very grounded. The Queen of Cups is very much about, "This is what I feel, I'm in touch with my emotions, and I know how to use them proactively in my life."

So this month I want you to be really connected to your emotional self, and don't be afraid to open up to that side of yourself. It might be a little bit rocky at the star as you go, "OK this is what I'm feeling; that's what that feels like." Over time you'll start to really ground yourself in your emotions and be able to use your emotions in a really positive way.
