New Moon Reading for June 23, 2017

20170619_141307

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.

20170619_140345

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.

20170619_140421

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.

20170619_140500

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.

20170619_140518

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.

20170619_140535

 

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.

20170619_140749

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.

20170619_140821

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.

20170619_140853

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.

20170619_141201

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.

20170619_141023

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.

20170619_140952

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.

20170619_140923

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.

Weekly Tarot for June 12 – 18, 2017

20170610_125406-1How 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.

20170611_145410

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.

20170611_145323

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.

20170611_145241

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.

20170611_145156

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.

20170611_145108

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.

20170611_145019

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.

All the usually business stuff will be linked below included my upcoming events. Hope you have a great Week. Thanks for stopping in to read.

Weekly Tarot for June 4, -10, 2017

20170602_211947

This week we have a Full Moon on the 9th which I will cover later this week. I know I used the Housewives Tarot last week and well it called again to me tonight. Nothing wrong with that as they can be a fun little deck to work with.  So let’s dig in and see what message they are offering.

20170602_211922

Ten of Cups – Let’s live it up a bit. You’re ready to show the world what you have to offer. Even if things are going perfectly this isn’t the time you will let others see that they aren’t. You will be putting on your best face and allowing them to see your best efforts.

This is also speaking of you having the mastery to take any situation no matter how negative it might be and turn it into a positive. After all one should always look on the bright side.

20170602_211905

Two of Cups – Connect or reconnect. This is about the people that are your tribe the ones that have your back. Understand that this is a time where mutual admiration can be shared. You are equal and dare I say things are as close to perfect as they can get. You will step into a positive frame of mind as you embrace those in your life.

20170602_211849

The Moon – Sweet Dreams and perfect sleep sometimes are just a mere illusion. However, sometimes in our dream state, we can experience the answers and resolutions we’ve been seeking. Be prepared to have an Epiphany or two this week as you sleep and wake with the answers that you’ve longed for.

20170602_211828

Page of Wands – Think back to being a kid and how easy it was to create the world or any other fantasy you wanted. Tap into that memory and to your dreams. Your creativity will be on high this week. Allow those ideas to come. Write them down and pull them out when you get stuck.

Resting on the Ten of Cups and the Two of Cups put your best ideas out there. Tap into the past as well as your future vision. Create something that is both nostalgic and futuristic. Understand that somewhere in your current mind frame you will form an idea that will allow you to show off not only your skills but also your talent.

20170602_211811

Six of Swords – This week we can start letting our anxiety and worry go. What we fear is not happening and it is time for us to not live in it. Even if things aren’t perfect we’ve learned that we can turn things around and make the best of it.

Resting on the Two of Cups and The Moon – Partnership and our answers will help us navigate the obstacles that have caused us to fear certain things. By asking for help and using fresh ideas and approaches we will soon discover that we can move forward.

20170602_211751

The High Priestess – She certainly can be a saucy wench but your focus this week is on your intuition and keeping secrets. Sometimes as we come into our intuition we don’t want to share just in case we’re wrong. That’s natural but there is a little more to it. Sometimes when we get something we’re hoping for a different outcome. So this week when you get something, write it down with the time and the date.  This will be your confirmation and if you’re right awesome and if you’re not don’t despair. There may very well be truth in the information you received just not as blatant as you may have initially thought. Sometimes messages need to be decoded or have some time pass.

 

Best Advice this Week: Put your best foot forward and connect or reconnect with your tribe. Pay attention to your dreams and creative ideas and find a way to step away from your fears. Lastly, listen to your intuition as it is on high. Write it all down as you will need to dissect it later.

Thank you all for entering the contest. All winners were notified. The next contest will be announced via my newsletter.

New Moon Tarot/Oracle for May 25, 2017

20170521_220558

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.

20170522_214057

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.

20170522_214131

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.

20170522_214150

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.

20170522_214228

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.

 

20170522_214258

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.

20170522_214457

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.

20170522_214018

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.

20170522_213949

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. 😉

 

20170522_213901

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.

20170522_213827

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.

Weekly Tarot for May 21 – 27, 2017

20170517_214918

This week, I must admit that my Taurus rising has been feeling the heavy slog of the last days of Taurus. Thank goodness tomorrow ushers in Gemini Season and I’m looking for a little more energy and a better connection with my creativity. The weather here in the Chicagoland area hasn’t helped as we went from the 80’s to the 40’s and two days of rain. I’m hoping the weather where you guys are has been much better and I hope your week has been better as well.

So, before I start let’s give Gemini a Big Welcome and hope that we have a rocking reading this week. Let’s see what the Black Cats Tarot has in store for us.

20170517_215413

First up we have the Hermit. First I must say this is a very different take on the card and I love it. As we look at out little friend on his solo journey we can discover the light he appears to be traveling to is almost calling him. There appear to be hearts coming out of the smoke of his candlelight as if he is sending out love into the world.

For this week this candle says we must send what we wish to attract out into the world.  As we do this we almost take time for ourselves to create what we need and want. By going within you can discover that solitude doesn’t have to be a bad thing, within reason of course. (Too much and you can become depressed.) Take the time and try and focus on what you need and want in your life. Put what you need out into the Universe. While you are in your solitude ask, what is it that you are seeking to bring joy into your world? Does it truly resonate with you?

The Tower – For those who follow me on Instagram may recognize this from an earlier post this week. We had a Tornado Warning right after I pulled cards for this reading. To say the least, it was a little unnerving. Fortunately, we were unscathed. However, it did give me a moment of pause as I sat in the basement.

So this week I would say this is telling us we need to shake things up with our thinking for that matter in our world. Take a good look at where you are and where you want to be? Think of what changes you need to make.

If you’re happy then just change up your routine a little broaden your horizons. Remember even in the most perfect world change is lurking around to shake up our life. If you prepare yourself, it will be a lot easier when it comes because trust me in some form or fashion change is coming.

20170517_215249

The Seven of Chalices is telling us to find a balance. While daydreams may be more fun the reality, we need to remember reality keeps us grounded. When we stay too much on the dream side of things we can loose perspective. When we stay in a reality where we are not happy we can loose hope. This week I would recommend finding a balance. Embrace a little of each to keep your sanity after all everyone needs a little time to daydream just a brief escape from our reality of the world and the news around us.

20170517_215220

The Sun is telling us once we embrace the changes and find a balance we will find joy and happiness.

Resting on the Hermit and the Tower you have to realize that to achieve this you must first put out into the universe what you need and embrace some solitude. Only by shaking things up and breaking out of habits and patterns can you find your joy and happiness.

20170517_215144

The Nine of Chalices is telling us to that our reward awaits us. You may feel a little tired and worn but success can come at a price.

On top of The Tower and the Seven of Chalices know that you have to navigate the changes and find a balance of the light and dark. When you do this you will find your success and a true balance that will allow you to find your creative energy.

20170517_215114

The Stars- Well make a wish first off. So as we discovered our reward, we have planted new seeds. We are nurturing and manifesting what we desire.  This is time for care and growth. So put the energy out there into the world to create your world.

Yes, it seems this has been a running theme as of late but our world is changing and in that, we must create our world as we wish to have it. Remember there is no perfection and that is okay as it helps us grow.

Best Advice this week. Put Positive Loving energy our there. Prepare for change and find balance. When you do you will find joy and happiness as a reward. Find your creativity and manifest what you need and want.

 

Food For Thought:  A note I was told to write as a little food for thought. Remember loving you has to start with taking care of yourself and nurturing yourself. You can’t expect to feel love if you are sending messages out into the universe that you feel unloved or unworthy. Believe that you deserve to be loved and to find joy and happiness. Just remember all of it must start with you.

Full Moon Tarot for May 10, 2017

20170507_200429

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.

20170507_201104

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.

 

20170507_201036

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.

20170507_200935

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.

20170507_200913

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.

20170507_200851

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.

20170507_200829

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.

20170507_200809

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.

20170507_200746

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!

Weekly Tarot for May 7 – 13, 2017

20170503_154921

First up there will be a second post this week as there will be a Full Moon on the 10th. This week’s reading amused me as the final card is the same as the final in the New Moon from a couple fo weeks ago.  It’s fitting when I look at the cards that are leading up to this guy again.

20170503_155643

The Seven of Wands is offering me a bit of a different feel tonight. It feels as if your intuitive side is meeting up with your guides and ancestors. This isn’t something that you are consciously aware of as most of the time this is occurring when you are sleeping or at least in an unplugged state.  They’re trying to offer you direction and guidance. It is up to you to make the choice of what you need to pursue.

20170503_212955

The Ace of Swords is telling us to fly. We have the ability to see our truth and to speak it. It’s the time to follow our passion and release what has kept us grounded.  You are being energized and will find that ideas are coming much easier, could be with the help of your guides that you are seeing more of how things are interconnected.

20170503_155549

Eight of Cups is all watery including the sign of Pisces there in the Moon. The glasses are all submerged and it appears that he is reaching blindly for them. To me, this says that the choices that you are mulling over maybe made with your intuition.  Between the last card and this one, I’d say your dreams are leaning toward a much grander scale than ever before. Remember though for anything to take root you have to start simple and build.

20170503_155520

The Chariot is all about moving forward but now you have the illumination you need. Know as you charge forward that the water may be rough but you are in control.  You hold the reins as well as the light. Remember you have the power so charge forward.

Resting on the Eight of Wands and the Ace of Swords, use the connection you have with your guides and ancestors to move past the things that have blocked you. You can cut ties and own your true self. Know that you can fly above the things that have you tethered and will succeed, it is up to you to do what you must.

20170503_155436

The Nine of Wands is telling us that when we chose, remember to be humble. Even though we may see something grand we will only truly appreciate it if we work for it. Humility is something that will serve us on our journey. Also, know that even if you only chose one at this time you will have many more opportunities in the future.

Resting on the Ace of Swords and the Eight of Cups. Know that you’ve reclaimed your power more than that you’ve learned to trust yourself and your instincts. Offer thanks for what you’ve discovered and know to be true, more opportunities are coming your way, you just might not feel them yet. I say feel because you’ve plugged into your passion and that isn’t something we always see. It is more of a feeling.

20170503_155358

I said Passion and now we have the Two of Cups. Though for me this is never really about the ripping off one’s clothes off this is more about your partner and the one who you see as your equal. This is what helps keep you grounded on your quest. It could be special someone, it could be a family. Whatever it is that brings you joy to your home know that you need to embrace it because you’re going to find your first real supporters there.

Resting on the Chariot, if you’re not in a relationship you may find one coming in very quickly. This could be a new friendship, a romantic partnership or even a business partner. Whichever it is, be ready as there is one coming and it will be one that is very good for you and your move forward.

20170503_155329

The King of Swords tells us that this partner will speak their truth. They will be honest and fair but they will also offer you the chance to succeed. They will show you a path that they’ve taken and how they made it. Be prepared to impress.

Resting on the Chariot and the Nine of Wands know this is part of your journey forward. When this person gives you guidance remember to be grateful and humble if need be. This could be an opportunity that will change your world and give you that chance you’ve longed for.

20170503_155259

Okay, no lie when I looked at the Ten of Coins here the first thing that popped into my head was, ‘Here are the keys to the Kingdom.’ That my friend would be a rapid rise.  I’m sure it was just the key in the image, but if we look at the riches that is in the box you have to wonder if this isn’t more of a reward for our hard work. After all, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we get paid to do what we love? However, the other way to look at this is to think of all the riches in your life. Think of the things and people that make your life rich every day.

Resting on the King of Swords and the Ten of Coins if the bucks start rolling in remember to keep a level head and stay humble. As quickly as the riches come in they can quickly go away.

20170503_155221

Lastly, we have our old friend the magician. Spinning and creating all that we need. This is the biggest part of this reading. We have all of our tools and skills, it’s time to turn each one of them into something with meaning. Think of that lightning as the energy required for your magnificent creation. Be amazed as you watch it grow.

Best Course of Action for the Week: Connect with the message you’re getting. Let your imagination take flight and you will soon see the opportunities that are being presented.  Be humble and thankful for all that you have. Know that a new partnership is on its way and you will soon discover riches in many areas of your life. Lastly, focus your energy on your creations.
