Here we are with at the point of another new week. One that looks in general that we might have a little bit of a rough start. But never fear as change is in the air. This si going to be a shorter version than normal but I will give you the most important details.
Five of Cups – The first card up looks rather ominous. While it appears that there is crazy energy all around you must understand that this si breaking down things and shaking it up. In the Daily video, I posted the cards were talking about the love of self and looking at the blessings you have in your life. This card is showing what happens when we don’t look at things in a better way. We when get trapped in the poor me of thinking. If you can refocus and look at things in a more positive realm then you won’t feel so trapped.
The Devil – Speaking of feeling trapped. The Devil often makes us feel this way. We are tethered to our vices, habits, and even old patterns. Even though we may know that there are not the best for us we still embrace and tether. If we can take the time this week and truly look at the blessings in our life you might discover that you are much freer than you may feel.
Four of Pentacles – is telling us to do some analysis, whether it be a friend, counselor or anyone else you might choose. Get some clarification and see how you can end the things that are holding you back. Find ways to reframe your thinking and see things in a better light. When we can step back and see the big picture we can see that life is always changing and what may be a dark patch now can turn into a great life lesson that will help you with your success.
Two of Wands – stand tall and own yourself. Sure you may be facing some shadow work this week but that’s okay it is part of you. As you go through the garbage of the day, week, month, or even your life. Look at the bigger picture and see how far you’ve come. Recognize the successes and losses and see and choose to reframe the negative thoughts even about the losses. By doing so you can release the pain and will less likely to be triggered by outside forces.
Two of Swords – Now that you are working through things make sure you take a little time for you. Take time to care for yourself and your emotional well-being. You are doing important work but keep in mind that it can be draining and cause you to run down if you don’t take it easy. So remember to include a few for you.
Seven of Cups – So now that you’ve looked at you past success and even the failures you can see what has been the blockages for you. What you need to overcome to move forward and accomplish what you must at this time. Your dreams are within reach you just have to not get dissuaded if they aren’t perfect. Keep trying to make it happen.
Judgment – We end the week on a much more positive note. We’ve broken down some barriers and see the potential. We know what moves we need to make but more important than that we have cleared what is limiting us out of our paths. Stick to your plans and goals and if you get stuck think back to this time and clear things up.
Hang in there this week feels a little emotional but it will do your heart and your mind good to go through and eliminate what is holding you back.

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.

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.

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.

There was some wild energy with the Super New Moon and you will definitely be feeling it for a while. Don’t worry this is just shaking things up so we can make room for the more positive things that are coming. So try to remember to stay out of your way and your head.
First up we have the lovely Nine of Swords – This is a card that definitely speaks of you being up in your head. There are times when worry and fear can lead our head to become a toxic waste dump of the negative. All it can take for some is an unexplained glance or an off-kilter comment for one’s mind to ego into overdrive.
If you find yourself in this position this week where you feel that the world is against you or at least one or two people then I recommend taking a step back. Clear your head and then reframe. The fact is that nothing may be going on at all. They could have been talking about someone or something else. They might have thought of something to make them look that way.
Seven of Cups – We have choices, in fact, many to make in the near future. The simple question is which do you choose? That seems simple enough but the truth is there are many possibilities and you should choose carefully. A good thing to look at if you can is your motivation for the choice. What do you want to do it? If it’s because it’s something to do well that’s fine if it is something simple like going to dinner or the movie. Actually, know someone who responds about their first marriage that they only got married because it was something to do. Guess how that worked out, it failed.
So, if you are making a life choice, you may want to think of your motivation. Think of the possible outcomes. These are things you need to pay attention too. Definitely, don’t do it because you are trying to rush out of one situation and into another. Please remember to keep a clear head when making a choice and try and listen to your gut.
Three of Pentacles – You’ll be working to secure a strong foundation this week. In order to do so, one must have put thought into the choices they’ve made. If you are secure with your decisions then you can build a much more stable future in the coming months. So put in the work you need to and be patient it may take time for things to develop but when they do you will be pleased.
Ace of Wands – Getting your foundation strong is great but you also need to start a new with spirit and passion. By getting out of your head you might discover that life is much lighter than you see. Think about the life you need and want. Since this is the Housewives deck I would say that you should also be tying up loose ends. Things that no longer serve you it is time to let go. By using this energy you will soon discover that life is much freer than you have felt in the past and you will experience a growth on many levels.
Resting on the Nine of Swords and Seven of Cups – the cards are telling us to clean up our old thinking. Stop judging people based on old experiences and relationships. While some situations may seem similar it doesn’t mean they are. So clean out your thoughts and explore relationships and your life. Life may never be perfect but joy can be found if you allow it.
Six of Cups – That sure is a lot of Pink Lemonade, while you might love to drink them all. It might be better to share. By sharing ourselves and our life we can offer people a chance to share in our joy. When we share memories and life experiences we can bond and explore different possibilities of life.
Resting on the Seven of Cups and the Three of Pentacles by being open we can lay a foundation of new relationships and experiences in our life that will bring us joy in the future. When we share we receive something invaluable in our life. We receive a blessing of another’s light and joy. So share your journey and discover that you have more in common with others that you realize.
Lastly, we have the Ten of Pentacles. Success or at least we can see the possibility of the future we want. You can see your effort and handwork is taking root and that in the not so distant future things will be much better than they are currently. Know and accept this. Life in this thought and breathe it in. Continue your handwork and honor your journey.
Best Advice: Stay out of your head. Look at your motivation and the possible outcomes of your choices. Build a strong foundation and clean up any loose ends. Share the journey and enjoy your success no matter how small.

The New Moon is Thursday, May 25, 2017, at 02:46 PM Chicago time. The New Moon is at 4 degrees of Gemini and is a Super Moon a term we usually see with a Full Moon. For more on the Astrology click on the link and go to Astrology King to get the low down.
Let’s see what the cards are telling us. This week I Chose the Revelations Tarot and the Wisdom of the Oracle to give us a full picture.
The Hierophant almost feels as he is telling us to pause for a moment and collect ourselves. Do we have everything in order? Do we have a plan or are we just rushing in hoping it all works out for the best? Take a moment, survey the path that lies ahead of you. Is it where you want to be? That is the message this card is providing us as we step into the energy of the New Moon.
The Four of Cups Reversed. The good news here is that you have more control. You get to pick and choose what you wish to be in your life instead of holding on to everything for dear life. She is actually joyful at what she is discovering. While there may be physical discoveries in your life that create joy. This will also be a time where you find joy in your self-discovery. Don’t be frightened to try something new or for that matter to release some of the past. If you take a step back and reframe it you might look at the good you shared with the person instead of thinking of the bad. While remembering can be a good thing don’t get stuck in there. Let the negative aspects go and work on healing yourself. Remember you are in control and this is about you finding a way to bring more joy into your life.
The Knight of Swords Reversed is showing us that we are ready to rush into things blindly and cut away what we don’t need in our life. We are tired of being stuck in a rut and know that we must embrace the coming changes.
Resting on the Hierophant and the Four of Cups Reversed: Know that while there is a lot of energy, you must remember that there is a needed plan in place. Yes, it is tempting to cut ties and collect all that you want but you have to remember that there is a reaction for every action. So be cautious as you make changes.
The King of Pentacles right after the Reversed Knight makes me think of the Family Matters Character Steve Urkel saying; “Did I do that?” The King is almost stoic after his wild ride, really not so surprising when you consider the energy he used. For us, though this is once again making us stop and think about our actions. When one takes swift actions to change their life even in the smallest way there is bound to be a few people that will question what you have done. The thing is you are willing to listen to things others say you are not indifferent the only change comes as you will not allow them to steal your energy or change your mind. You are listening to your gut and intuition and doing what feels right for you.
The Fool says okay I listened but I’m off on my journey. You can join me or you can stay but understand you can’t stop me. You see what many don’t at this time. You feel you see your path of transformation and are ready to make it real. You’re ready to do the work and create your life with the way you see it. You understand that it may not be perfect but you also know that there will be lessons and joy on this journey.
The King of Swords reversed some may say that he is blocking his sight but I feel it is more about trusting his knowing. Trusting his gut versus what may deceive that is in front of his eyes. This is a time to meditate and send the energy out to manifest your world. The New Moon is a perfect time to set your intentions for this cycle. Once you do and you focus that energy you might be surprised at how things move the way you want them too.
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.
By The Book, what exactly does that mean? Following the same path, everyone else does. Subscribing to the same old norms and ideas. Sure they might work for some but there is also the possibility that you should write your own rule book to a certain point. While there are certain rules that are mandatory there are many that are not. So if you want to experiment with your dress and some feel you shouldn’t because you’re too old to wear that. There is a rule in some eyes as to what you can wear but whose rule is it? They may have a point if you’re showing off your goods to the world but if you are comfortable then it really shouldn’t matter.
So during this cycle see what rules really apply and what don’t. Remember this is about you changing your life.
Truth Be Told – This card came up last weekend as well. In this reading, it is all about you owning your truth. Speak it proudly and understand some won’t agree. That’s fine as they have their own truth. We all live life and experience truth in a different way. My truth may not be the same as your’s but that doesn’t make it any less truthful in my eyes. This is one of our greatest flaws as well as our greatest gifts. It’s a flaw as for some a lie can still be the truth but the greatest gift is when the truth can offer so much clarity and freedom. So speak your Truth and say it loud and say it proud. Well, not too loud that you disturb someone or get yourself into trouble. 😉
All That Glitters – Certainly, we all know by now that all that glitters isn’t gold. Heck, usually it is gold plated and can even turn your skin green. What does that mean for us? While you aspire to be another because of the success they have achieved, remember that you don’t know all that it took. While they may put on a smile and share with the world how fantastic life is they may be hiding something that you wouldn’t imagine. SO during this period instead of looking to be inspired by others. Look at yourself and see what you can create to inspire you. Be honest with yourself about your talents and embrace them. Know that by doing so you are being real and stepping into the strength of our journey.
A Change In The Wind – This is where things get tricky. While this reading has focused on change when it arrives sometimes we are terrified of what it might bring. If we could be patient and let things unfurl we might see how good tings will be. Fear can make us stop in our transformation because life is much easier when we have a routine and we are comfortable even if we’re dealing with dark and depressing things.
When my Grandmother was in a care facility she would complain that her suite mate was stealing diapers and other things. She complained everytime I talked to her. So when it was time for a meeting with the administration I asked to have her moved. My Gram who was part of this meeting protested and said no she didn’t want to move. When we left the meeting I asked her why. She told me it was because she knew what she was dealing with and she could put up with it. She didn’t want a new suite mate as she didn’t know what she would get. This is a prime example of blocking that change.
So know that change is coming and that you need to embrace it as it is time.
Best Course of Advice: Stop and take in all the details and make a plan. Enjoy the discoveries about yourself and the world around you. When you feel a need to break free from the things you feel are holding you back, stop and think of your long-term goal. Listen to others concern and then let them know of your journey. Remember to manifest your intuitions.
A Little Food For Thought: As we step into the New Moon this Thursday make your intentions and make them clear. Note that as you see the transformations in your life occurring it is not the time to back down and think that everything will work out because you put it out there. Yes, our intentions have energy and they can draw what we need to us. However, if we are not receptive or are not willing to do the work our fortunes can reverse just as quickly as they came to us. So remember to be clear and be ready to do what you have to, to bring things to fruition.
Whew, I know it was a long one but I think it should offer some direction and clarity. Hang in there, things are shaking up and we will see many changes in our daily world as well as our long-term views.
