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.

This Saturday, June 24, 2017, I will be doing readings at Mixin’ Mingle in McHenry Illinois.  I’d love to see you out there either for a reading or just to stop by and say Hi. For more information about the event, you can click on the link below.

Weekly Tarot for March 19 – 25, 2017

20170317_180641-1.jpg

First, let me say thanks to all who came out last weekend and made out event a huge success. We greatly appreciate all the support.

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but I’ve changed the name of this blog. The Daily Dose has been moved to my current website, ReadingsbyDauna.com. Over there you can find different post than just the Weekly read. In fact, if you head over there you can see the Oracle and Tarot post for our current weekend. There are also a couple of blog post about some other Tarot related things.  While I love WordPress, I need to utilize my own website. I hope you can understand. Also if you head over there you can sign up for a chance to win a free mini story reading. Good Luck.

This week’s winner ( I had to draw a little early as I’m going to be busy tomorrow) is Irishmom, I’ll be emailing you shortly to schedule your reading. 

Now that I got a little of the business out of the way, let’s get to the reading.

queen of swords

The Queen of Swords has us being a little more protected than normal. We have our eyes wide open and looking at the big picture. Who can we trust and who is truly there to support us? It isn’t that we’re looking for a fight it is that we are trying to weed out those who might want to harm and it doesn’t have to be in a physical sense.

I’d say if there is someone that you just get an uncomfortable feeling there more likely is something more there. So pay attention and be cautious.

Justice

Justice can offer us so many things. The is providing us much illumination in our life right now. Our intuition is on high. This has a lot to do with Venus in Retrograde which will last until April 15, 2017. We are looking at our life in a much different way. We are able to look at the past and see things in a clearer light. Things and people are reappearing and it is now time to think about if they are truly someone you want in your life.

Another key component in all of this is the fact that during this time we need to stay balanced. Give and take needs to be equal are you prepared to do the work that is required?

Death

So we have the need to be protective and then we have a need for balance and now Death. I think it is pretty obvious we need to reexamine things and cut out what we don’t need. This is a time of rebirth and rebuilding our life and world. Fear not change is ultimately good as we will learn from the past if we did the work.

six of pen

The Six of Pentacles tells us that we have money and that we are at the top of our game. We feel the need to celebrate that we’ve made it this far on our journey. While you may feel there is a celebration in order understand that this is only a rest break there is still so much more to do.

Resting on top of the Queen and Justice, I would say find balance and keep your success to yourself. You don’t need someone getting in your head and undermining you no matter what their intentions are. Also, a balance will be key as with some success there is still a need to stay grounded and move forward.

four of wands

The Four of Pentacles tells us to stay on our toes. We are on the road to success and we are energized. We just have to remember the lessons we’ve learned and how we have transformed ourselves and our world. We must keep our eyes on the prize and be willing to fly when we have too.

Resting on Justice and Death this is telling us to use our instincts. If something doesn’t feel right take an alternate path. Remember sometimes we have to rise from our defeats and rebuild to claim our success.

two of cups

I could have stopped the reading with The Two fo Cups but I felt there was a bigger message here. While we might want the great love where we are equal I think the cards are speaking to us more about the integration of our own self-love. This isn’t about ego but it is about us treating ourselves the way we treat others and expected to be treated.

 

To pull these two right after the Two of Cups spoke volumes to me. It tells me that we have to embrace both our Masculine sides as well as our Feminine sides. Something that some os us wish not to show. i.e.: The man who doesn’t want to cry in front of someone or the woman who doesn’t want to show that she can tinker with a car too. We are changing as a society and maybe it is time to embrace and blend our roles. There is no need to have a dividing line as to what a male or female can do we are equal after all.

judgement

Judgment is the final card and it is telling us to break free of our bonds, whether it’s the bonds of the past, money, of even gender stereotypes. We need to release those things and experience and live life in a different way.

Best Advice for the Week: Be cautious. Trust your intuition and find balance. This is a time for renewal so be prepared to go through and find a way to free yourself. Learn to Love yourself and integrate the many facets of yourself for this will lead you to freedom.

I hope this information helps you with your week ahead.

Weekly Tarot Reading for October 30 – November 5, 2016

20161028_172850.jpg

As many of you know from my earlier post there is a New Moon on October 30th in the sign of Scorpio. ( You can find the post here.) This is going to be a very intuitive week, so when you see things that resonate with you at your core, please make sure to pay attention.

Two of Swords

The first card up is the Two of Swords. Right off I can tell you this is a card for Libra and well Balance. There may be times this week that you feel that you are running blind that you don’t know what to do. The truth is if you search deep in your core you will soon discover that you can see what others won’t. You will have choices ahead but if you trust the process you will do the right thing.

Know there maybe some illusions presented you will see past them but more importantly you will find the balance that you’ve been missing for most of the month. So plug into the Universe or your soul and see what messages you can gather this week.

nine of coins

Take a little time this week to stop and admire the beauty of life. While Fall is in the air there are still many beautiful sites to see. The gift of a warmer than usually Fall has allowed us to enjoy the scenery just a little longer than normal.

More than that, take a moment and stop to admire all that you’ve accomplished in your life. Remember the little things mean a lot. So if it was just a smile from a stranger embrace the joy they shared. Embrace your home, family, and friends for as time marches on many things and people are likely to change.

king-of-cups

So the first King up is the King of Cups and he is all about Water and emotions. So you would think this is more about you being overly emotional but to the contrary, this is more about you being stoic. The thing that stands out most to me is the empty chalice. He holds it very carefully but it is empty, It feels as if he waiting for something to awaken him emotionally from a long slumber.

This isn’t really surprising as the month of October has had many ups and downs. Between the constant election news and just things going on in everyday life emotionally a lot of people are spent. This week take a breath and focus on what will fill your cup with joy, find it and even if it is only for a few fleeting moments embrace it.

Death

Death: A perfect card since the Day of the Dead is this week. While the card may seem intimidating know that there is new life. More important know that this week there will be messages from those that have passed offering us hope and possible a better idea for how to meet our future goals.

This is also a good time to make amends if you need to with those on the other side. Release those past hurts and offer forgiveness or an apology. Do whatever you need to free yourself from the burden of the past.  Change is everywhere and this is something that will truly help you as you move forward.

Resting on the Two fo Swords and the Nine of Coins. This is telling us to have a little blind faith. Appreciate what we’ve been given but understand that there is a growth opportunity afoot and change is coming. Rise to the challenge and be grateful for what is given.

king-of-swords

The King of Swords is all about air or in this case your thoughts. This is the time to cut to your truth in your thoughts. As you move forward making plans don’t allow your thoughts to conspire against you. If they start to turn dark stop and take a moment and examine them. See if this is truly your mind working or is this a thought from the past that you have been programmed with.  Release them if they were there from long ago. Embrace a change and instead of looking at the potential for failure look at the potential for success. Know that as long as you try you will have taken a step to change your life.

Resting on the Nine of Coins and the King of Cups and next to Death this is a multi-message position. By appreciating what you have and having a cup that is waiting to be filled you can accept the coming changes. You can allow your thoughts to take flight and to inspire you future and growth.

Justice

This card is perfect for this week because while Justice may appear to be blind it is intuitively finding balance and footing in the future. Where do you want to be? Who do you want to be? What do you want to attract in your Life? Allow your head and heart to guide you to the path that you’ve been longing to be on. While you may have a partner or two on this journey know that this is your soul’s calling. Use your knowledge and you strength to embark on this journey.

Resting on the  Death Card and the King of Swords you are allowing the thoughts to lead you forward. Transforming into the person and the life you want. You are letting the old habits fall away and turning a blind eye to their temptation.

Eight of Wands

With a clearer head, you can see the journey you need to be on. You can clearly begin to focus on your long-term goals. It has felt lately like you were trudging in the muck. Now you can see what is rising out of the ash. You are beginning to see your dreams manifest into reality.  There is Sagittarius energy with this card so you are likely to see some very fast changes as you move forward. Stay on point and target and things should really start moving in December.

Resting on Justice you trust yourself more and have released the nagging doubt that has been plaguing you for years. You know it is important to take the steps now to ensure your future.

Judgement

 

Finally free, well to a certain extent. You are now able to see things in a more positive light and you feel more connected to the universe and all that is around you. You’ve made it through and a time fo growth is at hand. Reach for the stars or at least what you want in your life.

Best Advice:Trust your gut and your intuition. Appreciate all that you have and know that change is afoot. This is a time for release and moving forward to what you want to attract for your future and life.

Full Moon Reading for October 2016

fullmoon-102016

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.

six-of-swords

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.

page-of-spears

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.

magician

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.

the-fool

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.

ten-of-spears

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.

queen-of-swords

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.

death

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.

Haunted Thoughts

Even though you are long gone, there is always a moment when I find you sneaking back in. I fight to push your words from my mind. Some were true but others were lies. Lies that wouldn’t be discovered until long after you died.

The innocence you gave. The innocence you took and felt no blame. Who were you to say the things you did? Who were you to treat me or even yourself that way? You struggled so much in life, I just hope death is much easier?  I shake my head at that thought, as I’m told you are always around. Even when I think you’re not. I know you’re there watching, looking to see what I’m doing. I wonder do you still hope to see me fail, to see me fall flat on my face. Hmmm, I don’t think so nor should I say I don’t believe so.

Now that you don’t have all those earthly shackles and reality you see things much clearer. Different, some would say. Maybe you’ve come to know that I was never the person you made me out to be. I was creative and you couldn’t understand that. I couldn’t understand your mental health issue then. It wasn’t something one would discuss at least not you. No that was everyone else that had the problem. You would spin a tall tale to cover it all up.

Damn, why can’t I let it all go? Why do you creep in still? I’m not a victim and I’ll never be you.  I know you want what is best for me. You want me to be happy and I want that too but sometimes it is a little hard when all those things were programed into my mind way back when.

I think of those years long ago and wonder if things could’ve been different. What would’ve happened, if you had worked things out, stayed.  I know there is no sense in dwelling on the past it can’t be changed, just your perception. I’ve come to learn some things are out of our control, there are fated.

I lived most of my life without you, hard to believe really, but time flies. Sometimes, I have a moment when I think you did the best you could do and deep down I accept it. Then, I take a moment and look at all you missed. Okay, maybe you didn’t miss it. You were there but I didn’t get to see you participate. I was only left to wonder what you might think. To wonder if you were proud of me finally and not disappointed. You may be proud now, but you’re still not at rest and I have to wonder if and when you will ever be. I guess when you finally see I am where I should be you will.
