Tarot Reading for the New Moon in Scorpio October 30, 2016


The New Moon is in Scorpio and will occur at 12:39pm (ChicagoTime). This moon will be an interesting NewMoon as it is just the day before Samhain, The Witch’s New Year and two days before the Day of the Dead or All Saints Day as we called it in NOLA.  So the Veil will be very thin this Full Moon and will offer us many glimpses of the past and the future. It will be possible that those who have passed will come to us in a dream or vision. The connections you will feel during this time can be unnerving but are also very real. So trust your instincts during these days.

At the end, I’ll share a few links and tell you a little more about the above image. For now, though let’s get into the reading.

ten of cups

The Ten of Cups shows our emotions are not in the best place. Instead of looking at all the good lately, it has been much easier to look at what is lost, or at least what we feel like we may loose. The thing is there are people that care and that are willing to help. You just have to get out of your head and your own way. There are more people out there that love and care about you then you know.  So stop hiding and be willing to step out and be seen.

The Hierophant

You can see the future and it isn’t all that bad. Yes, of course, there will be bumps in the road but that is what helps us grow to our full potential. If you had it easy then you wouldn’t be who you are.

I know some may think that some have a charmed life. The truth is what you see is only what they want you to see. Think of it when someone seeks you out for advice, say a friend, you only hear their side and are never given the full picture. If someone appears to be perfect or have a perfect life, know and understand that what you are buying into is the illusion they are selling. After all most reality TV is scripted.

So, going forward with your vision it may not be exactly as you think it should be but understand it is exactly as it should be.

four of wands

The four of Wands is telling us to stay on our toes. To be prepared to take flight and dare I say follow the Yellow Brick Road. In order to be able to move forward, we have to be willing to make changes and that is what has been happening in our lives. Even if we haven’t sought them out changes have been presented to us. Some of us maybe holding on for dear life while others have been able to adapt quickly. No matter, this is the time to start down a new path. A path of a much better future and one that you can create, with a vision you manifest.


Speaking of that path, the Sun is guiding our way. We can see a new day is dawning and feel the energy shift. Even though we know we may have to walk into the overgrowth we trust that we will be protected and guided. For some this overgrowth is a scary thing but the truth is, it’s offering us an opportunity to appreciate what we have and need. We can see what we need to clear out and what we need to keep close, to hold the beauty near and dear to out heart. Know you will find many treasures on this journey of self-discovery and in many guises. The key here is to keep the positive intentions flowing in your head. When a negative thought appears, acknowledge it. If it is just a thought and not a true intuitive vibe then acknowledge, reframe and release. This New Moon is all about changing patterns.

Now on top of the Ten of Cups and the Hierophant know that you truly have to step out of your comfort zone. Embrace your goals and look forward to your future. You can see it, now you just have to make it happen.


queen of swords

Today the Queen feels pretty calm today even though she has her sword. She wants to protect what she has and what she is working toward.  She will do anything for you as long as you don’t cross her.

In this reading, this is about you being protective of your vision and playing things close to the vest. You know something big is coming you just aren’t sure what it is. So protect yourself and what you have and know that you must only tell those that you truly trust.

Resting on the Hierophant and the Four of Wands, playing close to the vest might be hard as people will seek you out and want to share things with you. While something you aspire to happen might be on the verge you might be sabotaging it by sharing. You might tell someone of a great job opportunity you’ve discovered only to have it ripped from under you by the very same person you thought was your friend. So be protective.

Prince of Pentacles

So while you are trying to be protective you can learn to be a better listener than you’ve ever been in the past. While he may seem shut off, you can tell he is making eye contact and seeking your truth. Sometimes when we listen we don’t truly listen because our monkey mind can come into play. During the next twenty-eight days try and stop and listen to what the other party is truly saying.

The Prince on top of the Queen  and the Sun is all about communicating. Learning to change your habits in this realm and for some learning to think before they speak. Remember sometimes a person just wants you to listen and not respond. They want to deal with their problems in their on way and just need someone to listen while they vent. Be that person and if they need more they will tell you.

Nine of Wands

So fitting with the Energy in the air and the Thinning of the Veil. Your team is behind you and you will be getting messages and signs when you are on the right path. This will be a time to pay attention. As I said early in the reading you will be more connected than ever before. The energy is ripe and instead of being frightened you should embrace it. Remember those that have passed and your guides are trying to move you in the right direction.

Resting on the Prince know that in order to truly connect and get your messages you need to be in the stillness. Step away from your social media and your electronics and find some down time. Light a candle and see what comes up.


Justice Reversed if offering us an interesting take. While we will have the Sun illuminating our path in the darkness of justice the flower is connecting the scaled and light is growing. For me, this is about being more connected and grounded in your vision. Feeling from your gut. Trusting your intuition while being fair to you head.  This is still all about balance but this is about growth and the cycle of change.

Best Advice: Get out of your head and your own way. Take a step out into the World and see what is being offered. Change up your patterns. Learn to communicate on all levels and be a better listener to the people here on this realm and on the other. Listen to your gut/heart but don’t completely shut down the rational mind, just tamp it down a little. In your stillness of listening, you may discover you had many of your answers all along.


I wanted to tell you a little about the main image of the reading. You might have noticed that there were some fresh herbs in the image. So far we have had a very mild winter and I was able to harvest Fresh Lavender, Rosemary, and Sage from my garden. All are good fro tuning in your Intuitive abilities. In the not so distant future, I will be offering dry herbs on my website.

The Crystals that are pictured are Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Sunstone Wand and a Moonstone Wand.
