This week seems to be a little on the difficult things but part of this feels as if it is speaking to the emotions and fears of the week. Really not surprising as we just had the New Moon and well that was definitely not one for the faint of heart as we are still dealing with the energy from it.
This week I’m reading with the Revelations Tarot, so let’s see what’s in store.
Ace of Pentacles Reversed – certainly not the most heart warming card. Definitely a fear based card though. This isn’t speaking of a new beginning. This is speaking more of the fear of running out and not having enough to do what needs to be done. The interesting thing though is even though it is not full as if the card were reversed it is showing that there is still the potential to have more it just isn’t as bountiful as you would like.
Page of Wands – She feels like she is surprised that she has the power. She isn’t certain of where she needs to go or how she should proceed. This is showing you that you have much to learn to become a master but fear not as you do have the power and the ability it just will take time for you to control it.
Five of Wands Reversed – Okay, well as of today we are entering into a Mercury Retrograde phase we are in the pre shadow phase. It goes Retro on August 13th here in the US. The reason I bring this up is communication is going to get a bit tricky in the coming weeks and let’s not forget we have an eclipse coming too. So During this time I would say watch how you say things and what you say. Your words may not be taken kindly. Also, watch this week when someone is on the attack remember they’re lashing out maybe be about something minor but it will definitely feel like it is huge because the energy is amping everything up.
Ten of Wands – It feels like you have the need to bar the outside world. That you can’t handle the high drama of everyone else. The only issue is you might be blocking your creativity as well. While it is good to keep the outside forces at bay one must realize that being a hermit isn’t always as productive as it might seem.
Seven of Pentacles Reversed – More angst is around. Why does it feel like no one wants to hear what you’re saying? Maybe because you aren’t delivering the right message. Sure you can flex your muscles and puff out your chest but no one really wants to listen to a blow hard they don’t believe in.
Ace of Swords – tells us that we can own our power we just may have to cut ties in order to move forward. While cutting ties may seem easy you have to do it diplomatically. You have to do as if you were a person in charge and be respectful. Remember you don’t wish to burn bridges as you never know when you may have to cross that path again.
Temperance Reversed – One must understand what energy one puts out is taken in by the Universe. If you are throwing things together haphazard they will show up that way. Sure be creative and take action but remember to be methodical about it. Don’t rush, however, no one said you can’t have a little flair when you do it.
Best Advice this week – Don’t give into fear and don’t be intimidated. You will discover some truths that you don’t like but you will also gain some peace of mind. So hang in there.

Here we are at the end of April and the beginning of May, Mercury is about to start moving direct just in the nick of time. So, let’s see how the week is going to shake out.
This week I’m using the Revelations Tarot. This was a deck that a friend handed to me when I had forgotten my cards and she wanted a reading. Without question, I shuffled and did my normal full spread and read reversals and all like I had been reading with the deck for years. This would be the connection I speak of when discussing choosing a deck.
The Star is leading off this week. First up make a wish this is the time for it. People will recognize you for your good nature and all that you are giving this week. The energy you are releasing is very freeing for you as well so there is a method to your madness. While you may not think this is madness some will. Which leads us to the next card.
The Two of Cups Reversed is a card where you will be out of sink with someone close. It could be simply that they thought you should be devoting your time to them or something they want you to do and not what you’re doing. Try and explain if you must but realize in some cases they aren’t in a position to hear.
The Ace of Cups is telling us that all is not lost. It may take a little time but they will see things as they are and understand. This is a new beginning and you must realize that your partner has needs and all that they require is a little of your attention.
Once you get that straight the Chariot is telling us to move forward with things but take time and enjoy the ride. There are lessons that we need to learn and beauty that we need to see. Drink it in. Drink in life and the experience and remember to enjoy the ride.
On top of the Star and the Two fo Cups reversed. Realize that many will view you differently. Some will adore and others will hate. The Truth is you have to believe in yourself and move forward.
The Eight of Cups speaks to us about what we may loose on our journey. There will be some people who fall away and some things in our life will change. While we may experience sadness for the loss, we have to understand that growth changes us as well as the other people in our lives. Know it is okay to grieve but don’t loose yourself in it.
Resting on the Two fo Cups and Ace of Cups, this is saying understand that some will leave but don’t get so caught up in the grief that you miss those who are still around and the ones that are entering into your life.
The Knight of Swords is telling us to charge forward and be fearless but remain focused. By moving forward we can work on reframing what we’ve been through and see things in a clearer light. Taking action we know which way we need to move and can take steps to get us where we need to be.
WE started out the reading in the light and it appears we will end it the same way. The Empress is telling us to nurture ourselves as well as all that is around us. This can include but not limited to family, friends, animals and well the world around us. During this phase in our life we need to reconnect with nature and see the amazing energy every day that we’re alive. So, if the weather is nice, kick off your shoes and walk through some grass or sand. If shoes or more your thing then at least take a walk on a path or even in your neighborhood. Reconnect and look at the beauty, if you look close enough you’ll see that there is even beauty in the decay of the world. Especially right now as things that have been dormant are returning to life.
Best Course of Action this week. While there maybe some victories this week there will also be losses. Know and accept that it is okay and it is part of life. Grieve but don’t let it consume you. There is still so much for you to do and to nurture in this world. Time to get moving and do what you need to do.
As always thanks for stopping by.

Here we are at the Weekend already. It seems like time is just flying by, can you believe we’re about to enter into May on Monday. The good News is Mercury will be going direct on May 3rd and we can all breathe a little easier. Before we get ahead of ourselves, we should take a look at what the weekend has to offer.
Once again, I’m using the Wisdom of the Oracle deck, I really do love this deck and I feel a review coming soon. Enough about that as you’re here for the Weekend Reading.
So, first, we have A Change in the Wind. Well as the cards told us for the weekly last week we were ending one journey and starting another. Of course, there is a Change in the Wind as we’re starting on a completely different journey now. Which is fantastic, but I must ask are you looking at the big picture?
This takes us to the next card of Go the Distance. Have you looked at the big picture and are you ready to dig in and Go the Distance. While this is only meant to be a weekend read this weekend appears to be telling us to look at what we want to achieve. Once again themes from the weekly but also the New Moon. Remember this is the time to be planting the seeds for your future. Have you truly planned it all out? Have you left room for changes as we all know they will come whether we expect them to or not because Life is fluid.
Round and Round, hmm well yes, life will send aspects of our past at us dressed up in different guises. However, this speaks much deeper to us. As we are starting down a new path we have to look at what has held us back from the past. What bad habits need to go? Are you repeating the same negative cycles in your life and always blaming others? If we take a step back and look at the common denominator it would be you but before you take the blame consider this. Maybe it is the choices you were trained to make. The patterns you learned at a young age from others. Granted at this time you are in control of your life and that being said it is time you stop doing the things that make you unhappy. The things that cause you to loathe yourself or your life. Free your mind and reframe your thinking.
Which leads us to the bonus card the Thinker. As I looked at the Round and Round card I felt that one more was needed as I wanted more clarity. The cards decided I truly needed to drill in the message to reframe your thinking. This can be done in many aspects of your life. It can be as simple as looking at someone who wronged you in the past and thinking about maybe your choices in this event. It can be to rethink your behaviors with food, Drink, drugs or even something as simple as negative self-talk. Whatever it is, take some time this weekend and truly look at yourself ad your life. I think you’ll discover that things can be much better if you reframe and look at things a little more positively.
Best Course of action: Change is coming so you might as well be prepared. Set your goals for the long term and release things and habits that don’t serve you. Think and plan that is key for the weekend and for the future.

Sorry that the weekly is up a little later than usually, but honestly it was such a beautiful day I just had to take a little time for myself and enjoy. We have a New Moon this week so there will be a report on that coming out this week as well. Keep your eyes peeled. Anyway, let’s get down to the cards which I must say when I pulled them I was surprised at the clarity that was offered in the middle of the spread. Honestly, this whole spread clearly speaks of a journey.
This Two of Wands is telling us that we have to face challenges head on. We can’t negate what needs to be done. It’s up to us to push through our challenges and meet them head on. Once we recognize what we need to overcome, we then can move forward with the task at hand.
The Ace of Pentacles is supporting the Two of Wands. It’s showing us that once we clear our head of the limitations and obstacles that we can finally take the action we need and move forward. If you notice the crowned kitty looking proud as he stands there looking out over the great sea and the swimming dolphins. Behind him appears to be his bounty, which feels as if he is proud of his success and on his way home. He has achieved what he needed to.
So this leads me to ask two questions.
Another thing of Note this is telling us of a New beginning in Money so keep that in money. That doesn’t mean you’re going to win the lottery but it can simply mean that you’re going to start viewing it a little differently.
The Two of Cups is telling us there is no pretense, no conflict just love and companionship. If we take away the pretense out of our relationships we can see them in a much different light. We need to step away from what the idea of perfect is and get real. Love is never perfect but even if it isn’t it can be beautiful if you allow it.
The World. When I pulled this card I smiled as I love the fact that it is telling us to share our negative patterns and thoughts. It is also telling us anything is possible but there must be gratitude for the journey that we’ve been on. This week as you end one journey remember to take a step back and think of all the lessons and experiences that you’ve been given. Surrender all that you can not control and even more important what you don’t need to control.
Resting on the Two of Wands and the Ace of Pentacles remember what you overcame and what you achieved. Even though you remember don’t let the past attach to you shake the negative off and know you can make it through.
So while the World offered me a smile the Fool made me stop and go Wow! The World was just telling us that we had completed a journey and now without missing a beat we are back out on the road. Time to start a new Journey and pick a direction. Though, it feels like this time we’re taking a road we’re much more comfortable with.
Resting on the Ace of Pentacles and the Two of Cups. There is definitely a New beginning but keep in mind that this time you have a partner. Someone who will support you on this journey and you aren’t alone.
The Moon – We are starting a new journey with the Moon offering its illumination. While that can be good as it can allow us to connect with our intuition. Just keep in mind not to let your unrealistic fears to creep in. Trust your gut as you start to move forward. Take it slow and keep notes. Sometimes we can’t see the clarity in our thoughts when they are coming at us mixed with our fears. If we step back and look at the pros and cons we might just discover the answers we need.
Resting on the World and the Fool, this says to me to stop and look at the lessons you’ve learned in the past and make sure you don’t repeat them again. Remember Life is cyclic and even though you think you’ve gotten past something there might just be a time it comes back to test you.
Best Advice this week: Whatever challenges you are dreading, step up and face them head on. You might just be surprised how much you achieve. Remember Love isn’t perfect and even though one journey maybe ending a new one is beginning. Don’t get trapped in your past fears and trust your instincts as you move forward.

Happy Easter, as you can tell by the cloth this is Easter Weekend and one that seems to be pretty good even with all those pesky planets in retrograde. Keep in mind though Venus is going direct, so that’s a positive.
I decided to use the Magical Unicorn deck this week as I felt it worked well with the whimsical Easter background. Anyway, let’s look at the cards.
Believe in Yourself: See yourself doing well, and you will. This is a great time for intentions and positive affirmations. If you are goal setting believe that you can do anything you set your mind too.
Pets: You love and understand animals. Well, the Easter Bunny comes this weekend for some so maybe that’s what this is speaking too. Nah, I’d say if you’re a pet owner expect to have a little more bonding time with your fur baby/babies or as Spring has sprung for the most part you might discover your desire to spend time in nature. Either way, embrace it. You will find a vital source of energy rejuvenation and quite possible a wealth of unrequited love.
Lastly, Laughter: You Need a good Laugh! Don’t we all. Find the joy in the silly and mundane this weekend. Release the negative and seek joy in the silliest of ways. This weekend might be a good time to cut loose a little and have some fun with friends or family and if neither is available discover something new that will bring a smile to your face.
Best Advice: Believe in yourself and don’t let others dissuade you. Remember your furry babies can offer you love just as much as you love them. Most important though. Find you joy and laughter.
I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend and the Easter Bunny brings you all the candy you desire.

We have a Full Moon Tuesday are you ready? This time it’s at 21 degrees Libra and will occur at 1:09 am CST. For a little more on the Astrology of this Full Moon click here. As you know on the 9th Mercury went retrograde, I’m sure if you’ve noticed snafus with your phone or electronics part of most likely is from our dear friend Mercury Retro. In my last weekly, I gave you links for that retro as well as others. This month is going to be a doozy with all the retrograde activity. For some, it will be a month of reviewing what you’ve been avoiding and preparing to make some much need changes in most areas of your life. While this might be a frightening time, consider this a Karmic time and for some a healing time.
This week, I’m using the Black Cats Tarot again. I really do like this deck a lot. A quick glance of the Full Moon reading seems to be one of putting effort into things of meaning and then seeing what happens. But let’s go deeper into the cards because a quick glance just won’t do.
The Queen of Wands is telling us to be willing to step out of our comfort zone. Releases the old habits and step into a new way of creating and working. If you look around you might just discover that there are many opportunities out there and some might bring a new friend into your world. So step out and see what lies around you.
The Eight of Pentacles is speaking to us about creating that masterpiece. Do you have all the skills required to do what must be done? If so they get to it. If not then take the time to get busy learning them. Remember this is a time to expand and learn new things.
The Three of Pentacles is putting us to work. It showing us that we have mastered the skills and that we can embark on the projects we need to and want to do. By putting in the hard work whether it be on a project or just our life, in general, we will see changes taking hold and evolution of our life and spirit.
The Knave of Chalices is telling us to help others. (Really not surprising since we are dealing with a Libra Full Moon.) When others need something or maybe even just a friend this is the time to be there. It’s telling us to look past the differences in others and found the common ground. This week you will come to realize that you could help others so easily even if it is just giving a stranger a smile. That simple smile might just make their day a little brighter or even given them a little comfort.
Resting on the Queen of Wands and the Eight of Pentacles it is telling us to get out of our comfort zone. Learn from others it doesn’t have to be a special skill, great if it is. However, by just listening to their view or a story that shaped where they’ve come from, you might discover something you needed to hear. A lesson that they learned from a similar situation you might be in.
The Lovers, you can join with someone this week and do a wonderful dance but understand that we all have our own path. While for some, those paths connect others paths will remain disconnected. It is a choice for you and the other parties, after all, free will rules. Remember though for how ever long this dance last find the joy and embrace it.
Resting on the Eight of Pentacles and the Three of Pentacles, know that they can help you work on those projects you long to complete. They can also teach you more about the joy of your creation.
Lastly, we have the King of Pentacles, once your project is complete know that you have to wait for others to discover you or it. However, even though that task may be complete this is not the time to just kick back and do nothing. This is the time to continue your growth. There are more adventures and evolution of yourself that needs to happen. Remember all that retrograde energy is making us correct some things and make changes. So do it within reason of course. Make sure if you want to go on a grand adventure that you have enough funds stashed away fro a rainy day before jumping in.
Resting on the Knave of Chalices and the Lovers. Rember that sometimes we have to go solo for a while. A journey of self-discovery can be something that is done in solitude. However, it can also be done with someone that loves and cares for you deeply. By talking with them they can sometimes over you more internal clarity than you might ever discover on your own. After all, self-examination sometimes requires an outsiders perspective.
Best Advice: Get busy on learning. Whether it’s something new you want to learn or learning more about yourself this is the time to do it. Examine and create but most importantly listen and help others when you can. This week you will discover something that is at your core.
