Hi everyone! I’m Brandon, and I’m your new Tarot reader and energy healer.
My goal with this fresh-to-death monthly offering is to make esoteric wisdom accessible so that you can use Tarot and Astrology to heal your heart and expand your life.
Each New Moon, I’ll be coming to you with Tarotscopes that will hopefully encourage you on your path with some specific messages for each sign. Above all, these are written to inspire and empower you!
You’re wondering what the hell is a Tarotscope?
I got you. It’s like a horoscope, but instead of tuning into just your Astrology (i.e. the planets’ influence on your life), I pull a Tarot card for each sign, and through that lens we see what your moonth has in store. I say moonth: where do you think the word MONTH originated from? Yeah, from the moon herself. Did I just blow your mind?
Think about it, our Gregorian calendar is totally arbitrary and an outdated holdover courtesy of the patriarchy, okur? Which is why I’ll be releasing these Tarotscopes in concert with the New Moon—so that we can start to become aware of what a natural cycle feels like.
Maybe you’re also wondering what the hell is a New Moon, but you don’t want to seem basic; again, I got you. A New Moon, which happens thirteen times throughout the course of a year, is when the moon is wholly invisible to us. This happens because the Moon situates itself between the Sun and the Earth, her illuminated side facing away from us.
New Moons ask us to start over so that we can start better. Think of it as a mini-New Year’s Eve that happens every moonth. It’s a great time to make resolutions, start up projects, or simply forgive yourself and start anew.
