((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell)) Compassion. Determination. Industry. This weekend is about moving forward on your steam and in your own way. There are people who would endeavor to disrupt, dissuade, or deter you. Your message to them is simple: TELL THEM TO SIT DOWN AND HUSH UP!! You do not have time to […]
The New Moon is here again in Chicago it will happen 9:30 pm on June at 2° Cancer. It’s being listed as a Super Moon. The next Super will be in December of this year and it just means it’s closer to the Earth. For the Astrology of the New Moon, I’ll link you to the Astrology King site.
The Crystals I used today are Citrine a great stone for manifesting and Amethyst for its healing and spiritual properties. This is a great time working on continuing to heal as well as manifesting what you want in your life. If you would like more info on either the Citrine, go here or the Amethyst go here. I have referred you to the Howl at the Moon site, the owner is very knowledgeable about crystals and is a great resource not to mention reasonably priced.
So now that we’ve gone through the Astrology and the Crystals let’s take a look at the cards. For this New Moon, I chose the Legend: The Arthurian Tarot by Anna-Marie Ferguson and the Wisdom of the House of the Night Oracle by P.C. Cast and Colette Baron-Reid. Let’s take a deeper look at what the cards are showing us.
We’re not starting off on the best foot with the Nine of Spears – Wind Harps of War. Sure this could be personal and we need to be prepared for the worst and get things in order. However, with all that has been happening on the World stage, heck for that matter even possible closer to home be prepared. I just read a headline that a customer was upset that his Latte was wrong and when another customer interviewed well the upset customer started stabbing the other one. So my warning is that people are angry and volatile currently so be prepared. Hopefully the only effects this will have in your sphere of the world will be what you see in the news. Remember though be prepared.
Eight of Cups – Chapel Perilous: Well right off the bat we see that our path is blocked. We must find another way. This could be related to our Nine of Spears. That warning of being prepared. However, as ominous as this card looks we can use this to our advantage. Instead of rushing into a path that could do us harm we are breaking free from a potential hazard. This is the time for us to take control of our lives to understand that we are in control. We might discover that what we thought was wanted was not what we wanted or needed at all and this is a much better path to be on.
The Fool – Percivale: No big surprise with the Eight of Cups just told us we’re on a new path. The darkness that we might have been feeling is now lifting. We see hope for the future and the potential for a better outcome. Embrace this and work off of this energy. This fits perfectly with the New Moon energy. If you are planning on starting a new business venture this is the time to start making it happen. Just make sure you’ve got everything in place.
Page of Spears – The Hare Reversed: There is someone lurking about in your group that can’t be trusted. If you’re making plans make sure you don’t share until you are certain and the plans are finished. Even if they are not out to harm you they have been known to be a gossip.
Resting on the Nine of Spears and the Eight of Cups: trust your instincts when someone is around that you’re just not sure about. While you may see the possibility they will only share failure and darkness trying to dissuade you from your goal.
Death – Gwyn AB Nudd & The Wild Hunt Reversed: The Death card never frightens me because it brings about to change, however, with it being reversed this is about us sticking with the past. We’re being resistant to change. Maybe it’s because we like our old habits and patterns just fine and we can’t see a way to shake them but the truth is we must.
The placement of this card isn’t joking around. We have the Eight of Cups and The Fool that we’re resting on. Your path to the past is blocked and you must move on. The Fool is telling you to get with the program and step away from what was holding you back. So what could be holding us back? There is the Page of Spears Reversed, if he/she had been upright, they would have been our champion but instead, they are someone that can be toxic to us. Someone that you will need to tell to get with the program or you’re going to do your own thing.
Five of Cups – Lancelot & Elaine: So sometimes when we put our foot down and don’t give into the whims of another we might find that we are suddenly alone. The person wasn’t willing to hear what we were saying no matter if it was for their own good. No matter what saddens we might feel, we must understand that we all have free will. There are times when they must follow their own path
As we seek more clarity of this we are greeted with Page of Spears Reversed and Death, there is no great mystery that the past is looming and a person who we thought was a friend isn’t. Grieve for what you might have lost but understand if they are truly supposed to be in your life they will and it will be without you compromising yourself.
Ten of Shields – Camelot: Everyone wants Camelot and it looks divine but to have arrived we had to go through the tribulations that we have. Be thankful you made it and as you look around you might soon discover that what was lost has been returned. Celebrate your success and your arrival. Home and family will offer much more comfort and peace. Embrace it and know what is important.
The Sun – Lleu: A card of joy one that offers us a celebration of our accomplishments. There is no denying that we’ve made it past our strife as the Ten of Shields and this both dictate success. So since you found your bliss share it with the world and let them share in your joy.
Eight of Shields – Wayland: Okay, so you had your celebration now it’s time to get to work. For some, this is the new Business or job opportunity and for others, it is as simple as learning something that you’ve longed too. So take this time and get on task. You are using talents that you knew you had as well as some that you weren’t aware that you had. You’re on your way to finding your passion, enjoy the discovery and all the newness in your life.
Now on to the Oracle Portion. The Oracle cards are a little bit of a guide on what you should do to achieve your intentions during this cycle.
Movement : Movement will usher in the change that we know is coming. Movement allows us to free ourselves from the restrictions that we’ve placed on ourselves and others. Now is the time to proceed, just make sure to be cautious.
Chaos – Once again this shouldn’t be a shocker. As theTarot showed us there is a mischief maker in our midst and we need to be prepared for the upheaval they will try to toss our way. Know that even though things may feel like they are spinning out of control this is only a way of shaking out the old and making free for the new.
Meditation – Pretty self-explanatory especially after the chaos you’ve been feeling as of late. Take time for yourself and seek the clarity you need. Develop a plan in your meditation practice that will help you in the areas where you need clarity and answers. As you meditate focus on those points and try to calm the monkey mind. As you go deeper you can ask the question in your mind that you’re seeking the answers too. Listen to your intuition for the right course of action.
High Priestess of Air – Love the beauty of this card, but what is she saying. She’s telling us to be logical in our choices. While we have a great imagination and it can serve us well we need to use our logic and be reasonable. This is the time to make calculated decisions and choices. This fits in with your passion and your work. Be logical, what talents can serve you and inspire you. Be logical and not rash and you will discover a whole new path.
Best Advice – There are times during this cycle that you may feel as if you are on a plane that is going down, nose first but don’t fret. This is change rushing in to force you to make the logical choice. Understand that sometimes you must let people, behaviors, and things go. Know that some things maybe lasting but others are just temporary until you are firmly on the path you’re supposed to be on. So hang in there, remember that even though there are some rough times there is some cause for celebration before you get down to the hard work.

This week, I decided to keep things simple. After all, there is enough going on without getting carried away. This week appears to be an interesting one and the end of the week is offering us a New Moon. One little tidbit I will give you now before the New Moon reading is that this Moon is great for those who are seeking to start a new Business venture. So if you are that person take some time this week and really invest in putting yourself out there. More on that later when I get the New Moon report out.
I’ve chosen to use Zach Wong’s Revelation Tarot, it is a fave of mine and one that I was able to read right off the bat. I plan on doing a deck review on it in the near future so keep your eyes peeled on my YouTube channel for it.
The Nine of Cups – is up first and it is advising us to be open to the possibilities. By being open, ready and available there will be opportunities in the emotional and relationship areas of your life. However, also be open to all possibilities. Sometimes when we are in a certain situation a possibility can be presented that is unexpected but just what we needed.
Also, this is a Wish Card, so wish from your heart and not from your head. Don’t over think what you’re seeking. Sure it is good to weigh pros and cons but sometimes you just need to take on the experience that is offered.
Charged up and ready to go, that’s what the Knight of Wands is showing us. The time to be prepared is now. There are some more changes coming and you have to be prepared to handle them because they are coming fast. In the next few months, it is time to shake off the cobwebs and plot a course. While you ride high on the dragon take a look around and see what the potential future holds. If there are some changes that are needed make them but get ready this is not the time to rest on your laurels.
The Empress is offering us a little time to soak up the energy we need. Embrace the Sun and the power, after all, you can do magic and that will become more apparent as the week goes on. Some of you might be laughing saying ‘You can create magic.’ The truth is whether you are practicing Wicca or you just believe yourself to be an average run of the mill person. you have the potential to manifest with every thought and with every word that leaves your mouth, so use your magic wisely. That being said find some time to spend a little time with nature. If for whatever reason you can’t outside then take a few and look on the internet or the television to find some beauty in nature or more simple than that look outside your window.
Also, take some time to Nurture and Heal yourself this week. Sure others will seek you for your comfort and care and that is fine but in order to be there for them, one must take care of themselves first. I’m not saying tell people to leave you alone. Once again just be prepared by doing a little self-care.
The Eight of Pentacles tells us that we’re almost done. Soon we can show the world what we’ve been working on. While they may sound grand it may just be the few that you care about in your own orbit. No matter this will be an important milestone for you as you move forward.
Resting on the Nine of Cups and the Knight of Pentacles, look at all the avenues you have to use your talent. This is not all for not. This passion project can be something that expands your horizons and your world view. Keep going you’re almost through.
The Chariot is reinforcing the last thought, Keep Going! If you look at the reverse of the card the guy is angry that isn’t the case and while some might feel that our driver on the chariot looks a little distracted, I like to think that she is keeping her eyes open for possible opportunities or maybe our driver is just looking for a place for their next journey to begin.
Resting on the Knight of Wands and The Empress – Look at the Big Picture. What is resonating with you currently? Where do you feel connected? Where do you see yourself in the not so distant future? Can you see the changes and growth in you? Feel your power and own it.
The Tower – this Tower offers us two different takes. The one we are going through I would consider organized chaos. Sure the Tower is all about shaking things up and tearing things down but it doesn’t have to be all bad. In order to move forward sometimes, we have to break things. Last week int he Daily we had the Tower and it was all about breaking the mold. So this week think about what you want to change and shake up. Remember on your project changes may need to be made to take it to the next level. Go with the flow and see what you need to add or take away.
Lastly, we have The Magician. Like I said you can do Magic. When we start stripping things down and getting down to the basic then we can truly create what we are seeking. If you are trying to stick to what others expect in your life then you aren’t living for you. So, with Peace in your heart and know your power and energy, embrace and create, the time is now.
Best Advice: Be Open, see the potential for the future and take a little time for self-care. Create and move forward looking for all the opportunities you seek. The end of the Week and the New Moon appear to be offering us organized chaos that opens the door for bringing magic into our lives.
I hope this week finds you well. On June 24, 2017, I will be in McHenry doing readings at

My post has been delayed because sometimes life gets in the way. Enjoy my dear friend’s post.
Give Dad a break!
((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))
Communication. Artistry. Recognition.
It’s Father’s Day Weekend! Shout out to all dads everywhere!!
This looks like a good weekend to make some serious moves and reap the rewards. This is a nice change of pace from the energy we have been wrestling as of late
As we know from astro forecasts, the energy (and our luck!) improves under recently direct Jupiter. Let us be grateful for any wins we can catch. CAUTION: As always, please be aware that nothing lasts forever – enjoy the moment but be prepared to move on to the next thing at a moment’s notice.
ENJOY THE WEEKEND: DO SOMETHING NICE FOR YOUR DAD!!

How are we all faring after the Full Moon? For some I know it was a harder moon than others. For some, it was an energizing event and yet others got the clarity they were seeking. This week we may have a few challenges shaking off what we went through this weekend. That’s okay, just remember we will always have ups and downs and we can always get through them if we try.
The Seven of Cups – Hmm, some would say, we are focusing too much on our dreams instead of the harsh reality that awaits us. However, that being said in all the manifestation and positive energy work we are told to do that exact thing. We are told that in order to attract the positive that we must believe in the positive. Now, “I’m not saying that you should check out of your reality and embrace escapism. However, you should embrace and understand both if possible. Understand the reality of your situation and look at the future you envision. If the future you see something that you can obtain and if so what will it take to get there?
When I look at this, it feels more like accept what you must, but change what you can. Our reality is an every change concept of the time we live in. One small action can have a long term rippling of consequences. So instead of living in fear figure out a plan to make the changes, you can. The things we have to live and can’t change we must look and analyze and reframe. Change your focus and find your way past the dark.
Five of Wands – Face those who are rushing in. This is once again about facing your reality. There are certain things we can’t change and well the ones that challenge us can be defeated with logic and reason in some cases. So before heading into battle weigh your options. It is best to say what needs to be said and try to negotiate. Rushing in may just waste energy and time and nothing will resolve. By being open and forthright you will be able to resolve your dilemma.
Two of Swords – This week we need to find balance. The person that we thought might be coming for us might actually be the one to help. Help is something that many will need this week, so take a hand if it is offered and if someone else is needing that tether make sure you pay it forward and offer to be that hand or shoulder someone needs.
Three of Cups – Celebrate and plan you made it through and now you can see a future that might actually have you doing something that you’re passionate about. Discuss with like-minded people your ideas and see if there is a need or an audience for your work. more important than that is enjoy the others that you surround yourself with. They are truly a gift.
Resting on the Seven of Cups and the Five of Wands. As you sit down to discuss and celebrate don’t neglect the truth that was your reality, you might suddenly discover that you have more than a little in common with others. In fact, your past might actually help someone’s current reality.
The Emperor – Sits in judgment of all others. Keep in mind while he may be judging and looking angry it isn’t stopping anyone from doing what they want too. So, this week if you find someone judging you or you are judging someone. Realize that the opinion of yourself or of others is just that an opinion. It only means something if someone values it. If there is no value then you are just wasting time or they are. Enjoy life and quit worrying so much about others.
Resting on the Five of Wands and The Two of Swords. The battles in the past don’t matter. Look at what you’ve gained now. Realize that you can just others based on your past experiences because while some may seem like another version of someone they may not be. If they are then you have to take a moment and look inside and see why you are attracted to this type of person.
The World – Transformation. Shedding the past and starting a new. We’ve been having new beginnings coming up almost every week lately and while we may have had some small steps in making changes there are still more to come. Embrace the changes and truly look at what you want your life to become and bring it to reality. Understand it will take time but know that when you look back years from now it will seem like it happened so quickly almost in a blink of an eye.
Best Advice – Look at your life objectively in every sense, from People to things to your job. Make amends and offer help or accept help. You’re going to discover there are more who will help in your life if you just stop with the judgment. Free yourself of the past and past hurts. Heal and embrace the transformation.

This has been a busy week. I actually thought about skipping the Weekend Oracle as the Full Moon is definitely going to be strong this week. However, I felt that some might still appreciate a little Oracle reading to help them make it through. So let’s see what the lovely Wisdom of the House of Night has to offer.
First up, we have The Fledgling – Very fitting since we are in a transformative Moon phase. This is speaking to us of for a lack of a better way to put it our growing pains. As we make changes things may become awkward at times and that is okay it is all part of learning how to respond differently.
Next up we have Confidence – Simple enough and very fitting. As we become more comfortable with who we are we will grow more confident with ourselves and our new self. Now for some, this may be a physical transformation for others it is just about becoming comfortable with who you are. However, this plays for you own it, just don’t get too cocky.
Lastly, we have Honesty – This is a huge step in transforming not only ourselves but our relationships as well. Sure it is easy enough to run from the things that we don’t like but you have to realize that you may leave what you don’t want to deal with only to find it in another guise. So face whatever truths you need to face because, in the long run, you will be glad you did.
Best Advice – Embrace your growing pain and learn the news things that are required. Show your confidence and live there. Honesty with ourselves and others is important so always try to be gentle but truthful.
I hope you embrace the Full Moon Energy this weekend and allow the transformation to begin. Realize that anything is possible if you allow it to come.

First, before anyone thinks I just rushed out and purchased the fabric to just cash in, I will tell you I’ve had it for a year. I have an old school Wonder Woman Barbie and my hubby gave me the old series on DVD a few years ago with a Wonder Woman Business card holder. I do admit that I wanted to celebrate the movie so shoot me for being a little kitschy. Now, that I’ve outed myself as a fangirl l
Now, that I’ve outed myself as a fangirl let’s talk about the real reason you stopped by the blog and that’s the Full Moon. While yes, it is known as the Strawberry Moon this one is going to be even more intense as Jupiter is coming out of Retrograde. It has been in Retrograde since February 6, 2017, and will be direct on June 9th. Keep in mind that Jupiter will not be moving forward until September 9, 2017. Couple that with the Full Moon at 18 degrees Sagittarius you have to expect some pretty powerful energy.
For more on the Astrology of the Full Moon go to Astrology King site.
For even more Astrology head over to the AquariusPapers.
Now, that we’ve covered the Astrology let’s look and see what the cards have to say. We’ll start with the Cosmic Tarot to see what is ahead.
Judgment – Not a bad way to start off. After all, it’s about breaking free from what has held you back. For some, it may be the opinions that others hold or unfounded fears. Whatever, has been blocking you is now being released and if it is pain then this is the time to heal. Basic in the light and heal your pain. Release fear, anguish, and the hurt. Heal your heart and your soul. Find the joy and reconnect with people and your dreams.
Two of Pentacles – Once again not surprising as we need to walk away from certain things. Time to let go and move on. Just be careful that the steps you take are proper. Sometimes when we discover a new found joy we may begin to crave it like a drug. Stay level headed and balanced. This isn’t a time to throw total caution to the wind.
The Fool – I’m sure you’re thinking but she just said not to throw caution to the wind. That still holds true. We can start new projects and new beginnings just do it cautiously. Be a calculated risk taker. There is no need to risk everything to try and gain something that may not work out.
Prince of Pentacles – This guy’s attitude has been plaguing us all week. Being stubborn and not wanting to listen. This has a lot to do with people not wanting to embrace change or for that matter even challenge. There is a certain level of respect some feel that they are entitled to the problem with that is some truly do not deserve the respect.
Now, how does this play out with our cards? Well, this will be a person that you’re going to have to handle differently than you have in the past. I’m not saying burn everything to the ground and give him a big FU! What, I’m saying is negotiate. Especially since he is resting on Judgement and the Two of Pentacles. Keep in mind this doesn’t have to be a male this is just someone with the attitude. So keep your eyes open as they make you an offer, see if it is what you really want and remember to calculate the outcome.
Two of Wands – Be proud of who you are and own it. You’ve come a long way and your roots are firmly planted in the ground. You are energized and are ready to tackle new challenges. Know you can achieve what you want to as long as you plan.
Resting on the Two of Pentacles and The Fool be a calculated risk taker.
Wheel of Fortune – You can almost hear the studio audience say it before the theme song starts. Seriously though we’ve arrived at this point as we are ready to take that spin and see how we can change our lives. Be ready check through your plans and well give it a whirl.
Lastly, for the Tarot, we have the Six of Wands – Opportunities are being presented are you ready to take them. Spirit is guiding you here you just have to make the choice. Once again look at them carefully and when the one is right you will know and you will discover something you’ve longed for.
Now, let’s dig into the Oracle cards. They are a little bit of a guide on what you should do to achieve your intentions during this cycle.
Tick -Tock – For some this may feel like time is wasting away. It is going to quickly and for others well they might feel as if they have too much time on their hands. What this is saying though is no matter how we visualize it we need to know how to use it and manage it but even more important than that, we must learn to treasure the time we are given with the people we cherish and doing the things we love to do.
Observe – This fits very well with our Prince of Pentacles. Sometimes in order to know how we need to proceed, e must observe others actions. If someone is in a foul mood approaching them about something you feel they may already disagree with is not a wise idea. Another thing by observing the details of things we can see what we need to focus on and how we can move forward and be successful.
Regeneration – Of course being a fan of Doctor Who this is the first thing that comes to my mind. But it is a tool that you will need as you break free and heal. you will have to regenerate and grow come into a new era of who you are. By owning you this will come to you a lot easier than it has in the past.
Yin – When I pulled this card I thought it was very fitting since I had chosen Wonder Woman as my backdrop. Yin is about the feminine principle of receptivity. This is about gathering information and taking cues from the universe. This is about you receiving what you’ve put out there.
Best Advice – Breaking free of the past. The last New Moon offered us transformation that has carried over and will continue to do so. Be a calculated risk taker. Weigh everything out and when you face opposition learn how to work and negotiate with the other person. Be proud of who you are and spin the big wheel, there are opportunities waiting.
Value your time and observe others around you. You are growing and regenerating blossom into a more positive version of you and be receptive to the Universe.
