Happy Halloween! Thie week I chose the Black Cats Tarot to read with. Keep hope alive this week. That would have to be the underlying theme. While you may feel as if pressure is closing in. Know that you are about to go through a rebirth. There is still a lot of work to do but you can do it. Just remember not to get stuck in the details. Find balance and nurture what you are creating. Remember let go of perfectionism and do things from your heart and soul and do it with Love.

Full Moon 9/6/17 Tarot & Oracle

FullSizeRender

This is all about the cycle.  Pay attention and use the tools you need to make it through.

Weekly Tarot for July 26, – July 2, 2017

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

 

judgement

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.

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.

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 April 2-8, 2017

20170329_201905-1.jpg

This week I will be reading with the Black Cat Tarot by Maria Kurara. I just got this deck but I love it. As most people who know me know I adore Black cats, all though currently, I don’t have one though I have two other lovely kitties.

Anyway, looking at the cards quickly it appears to be an interesting week ahead. Not really surprising as we are in Venus Retrograde for a little longer. Saturn is starting is retrograde on the sixth of April. For info on this go to the Astrology King here. My next post will take us into Mercury Retrograde on the ninth all though some of the things that are normally affected are already showing signs. Once again for more info check out the Astrology King link here. Now that we got most of the Astrology out of the way time to get to the cards.

lovers

 

The Lovers starts us off. I love this as it shows two divergent paths coming together for an intimate waltz. The choice is theirs to continue on their perspective journeys or to start a new journey together.

While the clouds may make your new path uncertain this week, know that there is a partnership that can help elevate you if you allow it. This partnership will take you to new heights and offer you new challenges. The Question you have to ask is are you ready for this new path and partnership? Remember this isn’t necessarily about love it could be a partnership with a shared passion.

Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups is having us leave our comfort zone and take a look around and refocus on what we want and what we are doing. You coming to realize that you are limiting yourself by not exploring other avenues. Remember sometimes we have to look elsewhere for answers and directions.

seven of wands

The Seven of Wands is here to show us the scary side of things. The challenges that we may face and the knowledge to know that we can stand our ground.  Be smart. Be Strong but most of all be fearless as best you can and don’t let your anxiety get the best of you.

eight of cups

The Eight of Cups says that we are ready to head out and start that quest. While it may take us out of our comfort zone like the Queen did it is also allowing us to know that we don’t need much to take with us on our journey.

Resting on the Lovers and the Queen of Cups know that this is a time of change. You are refocusing on the task at hand and you have to make some moves to get things moving. If you continue to stay in your little box then you will miss opportunities that are waiting for you.

Three of Cups

The Three of Cups is telling us to share what we have. As the Eight told us we don’t need much the three is telling us that we will find joy in connecting and being with others. If we can share our joy some will be overcome by the experience.

Resting on the Queen of Cups and the Seven of Wands remember this is part of you stepping out of your solitude. Don’t allow your fear or anxiety to keep you from your joy. While at first, you may resist going ultimately know that your happiness will be a great reward.

THe Chariot

 

With the Chariot in this deck, there is no doubt that there is action and movement. You are charging ahead and hanging on for dear life. However, when change is prevalent we take great strides into the future.

Best Course of Action: Get out of your comfort Zone. See what you can do to refocus your plans. Make the changes that are needed and take action.

As always I hope you enjoyed the reading and have a great week.
