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 attentions 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?

20170517_215328

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.

Weekly Tarot for May 14 – 20, 2017

20170512_105137

First, let me start out by saying Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mom’s out there pet Mom’s too!

Sometimes life gets in the way with what we plan. That’s what happened this week with the blog.  Normally the blog would’ve been up Yesterday but it has been a beautiful weekend and well the plants needed to be planted. (Most didn’t get planted as other projects took over.) Then last night we had a low key celebration for out 11th Wedding Anniversary. We ended up with takeout as most things close in town at 9:00pm, what can I say but small town life. So as I promised my Facebook followers I would get this done before gardening. Well, the post will be done but gardening will not as Allergy season is in full bloom.  Sorry for the rambling but well, I wanted to explain.

The Cosmic Tarot is the deck of Choice this week and this week it looks like there will be some progress made. Let’s take a deeper look.

20170512_105352

The Chariot is telling us we can make progress by staying focused and on task. Stick with your plan and don’t get distracted by minor obstacles. Those obstacles will only slow you down and make you realize that you need to refocus to proceed.

20170512_105421

The Seven of Cups tells us that we have to look up and not reach out blindly for what we want and for that matter even what we need. Yes, this cards can be about Dreams and Desires but this week it feels a little different. This week I have a feeling that it’s telling us to focus on one thing and don’t rush into things blindly. Listen to your gut and intuition as you make choices. If you just aren’t feeling something isn’t right at your core then maybe you should take a pass on it. This week truly look at what you’re reaching for and make sure it’s what you really want.

20170512_105447

The World is being offered up this week ready for the taking. I recommend thinking about what you really want. Sometimes the thing we think we truly desire is not what we need at all. So, as you take the World by storm make sure you’re prepared for any and all possible outcomes.  Life isn’t perfect but joy can be found in even the strangest places.

20170512_105514

The Fool is telling us to step out of our comfort zone this week. Sure it would be much easier to say there but then you would miss the new adventure that is waiting for you. Certainly, there are much easier ways to get to the new path you are seeking but where is your sense of adventure. Remember there are no memories without the risk. Now I’m not suggesting being reckless this is more about being the calculated risk taker, So plot your course and strap in for the ride. Make sure you take notes along the way as there will definitely be things you want to keep a record of for later times.

Resting on the Chariot and the Seven of Cups you have the potential to move forward to follow your dreams just make sure you look at the bigger picture and not just say well I can do this because I say I can. Remember to look for anything that might need to be considered before starting on this path.

20170512_105534

The Ace of Wands tells us of fast changes. So, hold on to your hat. While they might start out slow and small big life transforming ones are on their way. So be prepared make sure everything is in place as you’re not going to want to double back to fix something as you move forward.

Resting on the Seven of Cups and the World, know that as you step into your power you can have the dreams you want and create the World you need. Just be clear and prepared for what you think you desire. Remember there is balance in the world and even when we think everything is perfect there is always a little dark to it. Don’t get sucked into the dark.

20170512_105552

The Princess of Cups reminds me of a musician friend who would never share in advance with anyone his plans of who he was going to work with next for fear of jinxing them. With that in mind keep your plans close to the vest. This is a message that has come up a few times in the last weeks. I’m not saying being covert, however, I’m suggesting that right now you don’t need anyone telling you that you’re foolish or crazy for what you’re trying to pursue. Tell only those you trust and the rest well it isn’t any of their business.

Resting on the Fool and the Ace of Wands. Once again the theme of New Beginnings but more than that your path feels super charged. Stay focused and proceed.

Best Advice this week. Be Prepared. There are changes afoot and you need to know all your options. You have the potential to have the world you want it is your choice but preparation is key. Look at the big picture and know all that you need to make things happen.

As always thanks for stopping by to read.

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.

New Moon April 26, 2017

20170425_193849

For the New Moon, I’ve decided to do something a little different and mix things up. This time I’m using both Tarot and Oracle for the New Moon. While the Tarot will give us the direction and the Oracle will provide themes we might need to pay attention to during this New Moon cycle. I will be reading with the Legacy of the Divine Tarot and the NYC Vintage Subway Wanderlust Oracle.

Taking a peek at the astrology the New Moon is at 6degrees of Taurus. Not a surprise as we entered Taurus season a few days ago.  However, keep in mind we are still in the midst of Mercury Retrograde. For more on the Astrology, I direct you to the Astrology King for more details. Click Here.

So, let’s look at the Tarot:

20170425_195708

The Moon is the first card up and it is slightly amusing to see the image of a moon that is so full yet we are in the dark moon phase. However, this is a very fitting card as the Moon sometimes keeps us from seeking the truth we need to see. I’m drawn to the dog that is howling at the moon. Our Goddess in the moonlight is totally oblivious which makes me ask are you hearing the messages that you need to hear? Are you seeing the truth in a situation? While it is okay to think we have things figured out, make sure you see things as they really are.

20170425_195613

 

The Empress: what a lovely and fitting card for Spring. This card is brimming with Life. So, of course, this is the time to plant your seeds and see what comes forth. You have tons of ideas and this is the time to act on them. To take those first steps. As I said in the Weekly you are ending one journey and starting another. We all have ideas that are ramping up. Playing off the Moon we have so many ideas that we want to act on we just will need to truly look at the ones we are most passionate about.

 

20170425_195519

The Ace of Swords is telling us to speak our truth. To own who we are and by doing so we will allow our ideas to take flight. The Eagle is a powerful creature. Use its power to focus on your intuition and your creativity. Your focus will be key during this time in getting accomplished what you want to do.  Look at things honestly, ideas are included in this.

20170425_195428

The Two of Cups is one of my face cards as it truly is about love. However, this time I feel it is more about blending your feminine and masculine sides. If there is something that you’ve always wanted to do something that has been perceived to be of the opposite sex get out of your way and do it. This is a time to love yourself and love what you do. You never know who or what you might discover by stepping out of your comfort zone.

Resting on the Ace of Swords. I recommend taking some time to discover the truth about what makes you tick. Look at what holds you back as well as what gives you strength. This is a time to explore and look at the world through fresh eyes. Time to release some of those blocks from the past.

20170425_195231

Hmm, the Nine of Swords is playing games with our thoughts and our dreams. This is the card that can distract us from what we want. Sure there might be some truth but what if there isn’t? What if this is just our shadow self, holding us back like it has in the past,

Resting on t the Ace of Swords, well it’s up to you to cut through the BS. You have great ideas but are you going to allow the negative self-talk creep in and keeping you from what you’ve always wanted to try? Are you going to allow it to keep you from allowing your dreams to take flight? Cut through the crap and get serious about what you want. If you have questions or are uncertain about your plans then right them out. See all that it will entail. No one says you have to rush in but you will regret if you don’t at least try.

20170425_195144

 

The Magician is saying that you have the power and the tools that will allow you to create what you want. There is energy in your thoughts and your words. Even more important, as you take action you will gain energy and be amazed at the transformation you are creating.

Resting on the Two fo Cups and the Nine of Swords. Find your balance and know your truths. Keep the negativity at bay. You have the power, now is the time to take control.

 

So what are the Key Features that will help us through this New Moon.

 

20170425_194152

Some will be looking for Mr or Ms. Right while others will just be looking to reconnect. This doesn’t mean that it has to be a romantic relationship. In fact thinking of the other cards in the reading I would say this is about your passion. Find the Romance for something that you love to do or create. Rekindle that fire.

20170425_194725

Get Fancy. Maybe it si time to think about changing things up. Add a little style to what you are wearing. If you don’t wear makeup, take the words of my Grandmother and never leave home without a little lipstick on. If you have a set of dishes or an outfit that you love but it is only for a special occasion break it out. You’re alive and healthy so hey, that’s a special occasion. So get Fancy and enjoy.

20170425_194959

Be Unique, well in some cases by Getting Fancy you will be Unique. On a serious side though embrace the fact that you aren’t like everyone else. Put yourself and your ideas out there. Sure some may reject you but you know what there will be others that love you.

20170425_195045

Lastly, we have Adventure and I must say that I love that it has special there in the image. Think about this if you embrace your passion and get a little fancy and show your uniqueness you are bound to be in for an adventure. Because more than anything else you will be in for an adventure of a lifetime and one that you’ve dreamed of for years.

Well, that’s the New Moon. I hope you enjoyed the mixed reading. Let me know if you think I should do it for the Full Moon or stick to the normal tarot.  Hope you got the insight you were looking for.

Remember don’t forget to set your intentions.

Full Moon Reading for April 11, 2017

20170405_214332

We have a Full Moon Tuesday are you ready? This time it’s at 21 degrees Libra and will occur at 1:09 am CST. For a little more on the Astrology of this Full Moon click here. As you know on the 9th Mercury went retrograde, I’m sure if you’ve noticed snafus with your phone or electronics part of most likely is from our dear friend Mercury Retro. In my last weekly, I gave you links for that retro as well as others. This month is going to be a doozy with all the retrograde activity. For some, it will be a month of reviewing what you’ve been avoiding and preparing to make some much need changes in most areas of your life.  While this might be a frightening time, consider this a Karmic time and for some a healing time.

This week, I’m using the Black Cats Tarot again. I really do like this deck a lot. A quick glance of the Full Moon reading seems to be one of putting effort into things of meaning and then seeing what happens. But let’s go deeper into the cards because a quick glance just won’t do.

20170405_215136

The Queen of Wands is telling us to be willing to step out of our comfort zone. Releases the old habits and step into a new way of creating and working. If you look around you might just discover that there are many opportunities out there and some might bring a new friend into your world. So step out and see what lies around you.

20170405_215047

The Eight of Pentacles is speaking to us about creating that masterpiece. Do you have all the skills required to do what must be done? If so they get to it. If not then take the time to get busy learning them. Remember this is a time to expand and learn new things.

20170405_215005

The Three of Pentacles is putting us to work. It showing us that we have mastered the skills and that we can embark on the projects we need to and want to do. By putting in the hard work whether it be on a project or just our life, in general, we will see changes taking hold and evolution of our life and spirit.

20170405_214904

The Knave of Chalices is telling us to help others. (Really not surprising since we are dealing with a Libra Full Moon.) When others need something or maybe even just a friend this is the time to be there. It’s telling us to look past the differences in others and found the common ground. This week you will come to realize that you could help others so easily even if it is just giving a stranger a smile. That simple smile might just make their day a little brighter or even given them a little comfort.

Resting on the Queen of Wands and the Eight of Pentacles it is telling us to get out of our comfort zone. Learn from others it doesn’t have to be a special skill, great if it is. However, by just listening to their view or a story that shaped where they’ve come from, you might discover something you needed to hear. A lesson that they learned from a similar situation you might be in.

20170405_214807

The Lovers, you can join with someone this week and do a wonderful dance but understand that we all have our own path. While for some, those paths connect others paths will remain disconnected. It is a choice for you and the other parties, after all, free will rules. Remember though for how ever long this dance last find the joy and embrace it.

Resting on the Eight of Pentacles and the Three of Pentacles, know that they can help you work on those projects you long to complete. They can also teach you more about the joy of your creation.

20170405_214634

Lastly, we have the King of Pentacles, once your project is complete know that you have to wait for others to discover you or it. However, even though that task may be complete this is not the time to just kick back and do nothing. This is the time to continue your growth. There are more adventures and evolution of yourself that needs to happen. Remember all that retrograde energy is making us correct some things and make changes. So do it within reason of course. Make sure if you want to go on a grand adventure that you have enough funds stashed away fro a rainy day before jumping in.

Resting on the Knave of Chalices and the Lovers. Rember that sometimes we have to go solo for a while. A journey of self-discovery can be something that is done in solitude. However, it can also be done with someone that loves and cares for you deeply. By talking with them they can sometimes over you more internal clarity than you might ever discover on your own. After all, self-examination sometimes requires an outsiders perspective.

Best Advice: Get busy on learning. Whether it’s something new you want to learn or learning more about yourself this is the time to do it. Examine and create but most importantly listen and help others when you can. This week you will discover something that is at your core.

As always thanks for reading.
