New Moon Reading for June 23, 2017


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.

Full Moon Tarot for May 10, 2017


I messed around with a few decks to see what information needed to be provided for the Full Moon and well this was the one I chose. The Legend, The Arthurian Tarot Deck offers us a dark view than most decks. While it may look dark, change can feel that way sometimes, especially when we have to look truthfully at our lives.

Based on a quick peek at the cards this Full Moon appears to be a doozy.  Keep in mind though a quick peek doesn’t give us the details. The Full Moon is at 20 degrees Scorpio at 4:43 pm Central time. For more details on the Astrology click on the link and head over to The Astrology King Site.

Let’s get to the cards.


The Tower is always ominous and well this artistry of this one certainly is. However, don’t let that frighten you. Change no matter how big or small for that matter can be very frightening. It can turn our world completely upside down. However, it also allows us to grow and experience things in a different light. If we didn’t shake things up then things would never change.  After all the cards have been saying that change was coming.

So, know that the Full moon will be bringing change with it. Understand that it might be a little frightening but it is required.



The Two of Spears is telling us to plan and evaluate what we want in our future. Organization is key as you move forward. This is a time for you to take charge of your life instead of having others dictate it. What do you want to change and how are you going to do it? Now, this isn’t saying to be done with all in your inner circle that you are allowing to make plans for you. This is saying use your input and have a voice in the process.


The Eight of Cups is advising us to rethink what direction we are headed. It appears that another path must be taken. While that might seem like a pain, we may end up discovering something much better on the alternate route. As I said earlier change can be good.


The Hanged Man in this deck speaks of stagnation. Once again reinforcing the need to abandon the path you are currently on and taking control to make a change. Sometimes when our life feels stagnate we don’t even realize it until we get to the point where we are miserable. This Full Moon is making us realize we need a change.

Resting on the Tower and the Two of Spears we should know that we need to prepare and organize for the changes that are coming. If we are prepared things will be much easier as they occur.


The Four of Shields, the image shows a grand king boring someone to tears as he goes on and on. AS we make changes sometimes it is best to keep our plans to ourselves. Some will share our joy and others will roll their eyes. Remember this is your idea and no one else’sUnless you know someone that shares your vision tone it down just a tad.

A side note about this card is financial stability or the need to spend on something extravagant. Honestly, right now you might want to keep the spending down.

Resting on the Two of Spears and the Eight of Cups.  Know that you have to plan carefully and be prepared for sudden changes.


The Six of Cups is talking to us about fond memories of the past. Take a moment during this period and think about your past, particularly the good things. What was it that made those times so wonderful? If you’re feeling nostalgic maybe ring up a friend from the past. Keep in mind as you’re looking back, the changes you’ve gone through in your life. Celebrate them all good and bad and remember the lessons. If you look back you might still find a lesson that you didn’t quite see all those years ago.

Resting on The Hanged Man and the Four of Shields know that you can’t go back even though you have treasured memories. The past can be great but sometimes there is a reason why you grew apart. Maybe it just didn’t feel real because you both grew.


We have the Emperor but more important than that is we have Arthur. A man who came into his own power. This is the time to come into your own. Be who you desire to be. Yes, there will be rules that apply but by you coming into your own you will awaken your passion and your inner strength. Know that your inner confidence is coming through and others will see it too.


So, I could’ve ended it on The Emperor but felt one more was required. The Chariot is telling us that once we come into our own we will have the power to go forth and do what we need to do. The obstacles that have been blocking us are suddenly removed. So believe and go forth.

The best course of action during this period will be to prepare for all the changes in your life. Know that you may have to alter course and that’s okay. Keep things to yourself when needed. Know that the past may come knocking with a lesson but it is one that will empower you. Once you gain your confidence you’ll be able to move forward much easier.

Hope you have a wonderful Full Moon!

New Moon Tarot for 1/27/2017


Here we are with a new Moon upon us.  It will occur January 27, 2017, at 6:08 pm CST and it’s at 8 degrees of Aquarius. For more on the Astrology click here and go to the AstrologyKing site.


The First card up is the Chariot and it speaks of breaking down the old and charging forward into the unknown. This is telling us that we can overcome whatever lies in our path. We can be victorious and successful as we charge ahead.


So far this reading is playing off the themes of the Weekly. The Three of Shields is telling us that we’re in the process of learning and creating what we are passionate about. We are gaining the skill we need to make things happen. You are finally embracing who you truly are. It is about time to stand up for who you are and what you offer.


The Knight can offer us a few things. Yes, he can be offering us romance or maybe for some there may even be a life-altering proposal in your future. However, if we look at the bigger picture outside of the romance he is riding something that we don’t see in our reality a Unicorn. What this is telling me is to imagine what you can physically see. See a different reality and make it happen. Now, I’m not saying toss away the harsh realities or facts. What I’m suggesting is that you look at the possibility of what tomorrow may hold. What future can you see? What World can you imagine? Sure we may have to get through some ugliness to get there but know that you are a co-creator in your destiny and you should fully participate. Don’t get caught up in the negative!


The Nine of Swords speaks to us about our longing and how our impatiences can lead to depression. Sometimes we want things to happen so fast that we miss the potential of the excitement leading up to it. If we don’t pay attention and allow our thoughts to sabotage we may never arrive at our destination. Depression can be a dream killer, so don’t embrace it. Sure you can long for the day of the grand adventure or the big life change but don’t miss the lessons all around us. There may be an unexpected gift right in front of us. Pay attention and don’t become trapped.

The Good News with this resting on the Chariot and the Three of Shields we know that we can get ourselves out of the defeating patterns by charging forward. By working toward what we want. We have to make things happen.


Judgment, hmm, do you hear that? Well, pay attention it is your Destiny calling. This is time for life-changing events. You’re moving forward into a new way of life. This is your path and you helped create it. Now embrace it.

With this resting on the Three of Shields and the Knight of Cups, put your best out there. You don’t know who is watching. Craft yourself and showcase your talents. There might be an offer coming that will surprise you and be very unexpected.


The Ten of Shields is stating that you’ve arrived. You are happy with your success and are more than willing to share. This is about good times with family and friends and being joyful in your achievements and what you’ve accomplished. Be proud, joyful, and happy.

Resting on the Nine of Swords and Judgment. Get out of your head and look around okay maybe everything is not as you envisioned it but you know what this is pretty damn good so enjoy and own it. Who cares what others are thinking, remember this is part of your Destiny.


The Two of Cups, so this is the second card that indicates a potential for marriage or engagement, makes sense since this cycle will run through Valentine’s day. So for some, you will be getting a ring. However, there is a more important aspect of this card. This is about the person if you are in a relationship being your biggest supporter. This is a Happy union and marriage it is one that is fated. So embrace the gift and thank your collaborators.


The Fool tells us to get ready as we are on to our next Quest. We are always growing and evolving and as we reach one place there is another for us to grow and expand who we are. Remember this is all part of what you’ve been working toward. See where you’re headed and know that success to the next level is right there waiting.

Best Course of Action: Keep moving forward. Put in the work you are making it happen. Don’t get stuck in your head. See the future and know you are on your way with partners who love and care about your success.

Happy New Moon,

Full Moon Reading for October 2016


There will be two readings this week this one for the Full Moon and then the Weekly. I’m a little late to the party with this Full Moon report but as with everyone sometimes life gets in the way. The Full Moon will be at 11:25pm on October 15, 2016, in Chicago for others well the Full Moon will be on October 16, 2016, either way, it appears to be a pretty powerful one as there is a lot of Astrology surrounding it. ( If you want to know more about the Astrology check out the Astrology King.)

Firstly the moon is in Aries and is known by many names but the one I’ve chosen is the Hunter’s Moon. For me, it fits the deck I’m reading from. This deck has always reminded me of being on a quest and with the way this year has been I think a lot of us are on a quest for it to be behind us. That being said there is still the possibility to have this year end on a very good note so hang in there.

So, Let’s get to this reading.


The Six of Swords – The Eachtra is the first cards up.  While you are embarking on a journey place your fear behind you. You are protected as there are others watching out for you. While you may not see them on this realm they are certainly there protecting you. As we inch closer to the approaching thinning of the veil you may actually be able to see them or at least feel their presence. Know that they are there to protect and are not seeking to harm. You will have safe passage.


The Page of Spears – The Hare is offering us good news and new possibilities. He is also offering you a renewed sense of energy and purpose. He will help you complete the task that you must and allow you to have a different perspective of what you envision for your future.


The Magician – Merlin is next. When we talk fo the Magician we talk of all the talents one has to create the life you want. Merlin the supreme magician is telling us that we are in the Master class. We have the power and the control to make the world we need. Our creativity and Inspiration will be on target and we will create what we need even if it is only an illusion for others to see.


Now we bring in the Fool – Percivale. We feel inspired and energized. We realize that even if we must start anew this is the right time to do it. We have an enthusiasm that is contagious. Unlike most cards, this Fool card is not showing him walking off a cliff. It shows him walking into a new future, a bright future. One which he wants to embrace with all his heart.

Now resting on the Six of Swords and the Page of Spears, it feels as if you are more comfortable with the possibilities. You’re not letting fear creep into your thoughts and have come to realize that things have a way of working out even if it isn’t the way you planned.  For the first time in a while you have hope.


The Ten of Spears- The Green Knight. You know you have a task at hand and you want to please others. They have chosen you after all and you willingly accepted. It is now time for you to prove yourself. The interesting thing is that you’ve already proven yourself to others this is truly about proving yourself to you.

Resting on the Page of Spears and The Magician you will soon be getting the feedback you desire. For some reason, you’ve allowed yourself worth to be attached to others. Even though you have the talent and tools you seek the validation that is outside yourself. This is the time to realize that you are in control.


The Queen of Swords – Morgause. This Queen isn’t always nice in fact there are times when she can be downright ruthless with her scheming. For me, this is a big red flag that you seeking approval from others can mess with your head. However, there is the other side of this.

Resting on the Fool and the Knight of Spears, it may very well be you that is letting too much of your ego come through. While it is good to be happy with your success don’t celebrate it to the detriment of others.


Finally, we have the Death card – Gwyn AB Nudd & The Wild Hunt. The time fo rebirth has arrived. We see the positive changes on this journey and have come to embrace them, however, by doing so we must let go of the past and old habits or relationships that weren’t healthy.

Resting on the Queen learn to embrace your new confidence and let go of the past hurts. The time to heal is now as you are free to move on with your life and not be strapped down.

Best Advice: Be prepared to step out of your shell. There are others guiding you and helping you move forward. You are coming into your talents and will soon be recognized. Embrace this time and celebrate but don’t get too cocky. Free yourself from the past as you’ve learned your lessons and are ready for healing and the new doors that are opening for you.
