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.

New Moon Readings for March 27, 2017

20170325_204721.jpg

Monday is the New Moon and it should be an interesting one, as it’s in the sign of Aires.  Keep in mind though we are also still in the midst of a Venus Retrograde.  Yet, there is even still more Astrology to this New Moon and for that, I will direct you over to the Astrology King site here.

This week I chose to read with The Crystal Tarot by Philip Permutt. This deck just felt right for this reading. The great thing about this deck is that you are working with Crystals besides Tarot. Mixing the two can be quite beneficial. However, we’re sticking with just the Tarot as that is what you guys were looking for.

Four of Pentacles

The First card up is the Four of Pentacles, which is saying that we are starting to reap the rewards of our past efforts. Things that you’ve been working on are taking shape and you will continue to progress.However, just because there is progress don’t allow yourself to get off track.

Two of Wands.jpg

The Two fo Wands is telling us to take action now. As I said don’t get off track. The energy is forming to carry you along your path. There is energy here to offer positive change you just have to be willing to embrace it and do the work.

The Wheel of Fortune

I love this version of the Wheel of Fortune as it very much like the Death card it is telling us to rise above past hurts and fears. This is the time to change your Luck the only way to do that is by taking action. Change what you don’t like and make things happen. You have all the elements or the tools with you make it happen.

Ten of Swords

The Ten of Swords may be telling you that the door is barred from a new beginning but we know this isn’t the case. While the transition may have us questioning some areas of our life know that we must do so in order to move forward.

Resting on the Four of Pentacles and the Two of Wands know that you have the potential for growth and the energy you need to stay motivated. You just can’t let your thoughts get in your head.

The Chariot.jpg

The Chariot is telling us to move forward. It is showing the progress that we’ve made and that we aren’t alone on this journey. While we are uncertain of the outcome of our journey we know that we must attempt to change our destiny. It is the only way.

Resting on the Two of Wands and the Wheel of Fortune, know that you are being pushed forward and you have what you need to complete this life transformation. It is just up to you to remain positive and focused.

Queen of Swords

As the Queen of Swords, we can sometimes be too harsh or judgmental. It is not that we want to it is just what we’ve learned to protect and sometimes even deflect pain. Take a step back and try to understand that judging others only hurts you. You can not change their world or their life. They have made choices just as you have and sometimes they weren’t even given a choice for their circumstance. So look at them with love, kindness, and graciousness. By doing so you will find much joy. On a side note don’t be too critical of yourself either, remember you are only human.

Resting on the Ten of Swords and the Chariot, know that this is part of what you need to let go of your path. This will help heal you as well as offer you a much more connected feeling to those around you.

Ace of Penacles

This Ace showed up in the last Full Moon reading except it was the first card. This is telling me that the change you’ve made through this period will be offering your more opportunities. You will be discovering that you work and ideas are starting to pay off and that things will be taking off in a much better direction. Just keep pushing through and you will achieve what you set out to do.

Best Course of Advice: Stay on target and start taking the time to look at things differently. Life is taking a turn and it is time to change your luck and move forward. Don’t get distracted you got this. You just have to keep moving forward.

 

Don’t forget to sign up for a mini story reading here.  This is the reading I general offer at my events and you get it for free. It is a great chance to see what I can do.

This week’s winner is CJDAI5Y. You will be getting an email shortly on how to collect your reading.

I hope all of you have a great week and New Moon. See you next week,

Dauna.

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 for January 8 -14, 2016

20170107_214637.jpg

 

Hooray, hooray Mercury goes Direct today. Hopefully, now, my electronic devices will not be so off.  So what does this week hold in store for you, laying out the cards it seems like it will be an interesting week of self-discovery. Time to get down to work and fulfill those long hoped for dreams.

 

knight-of-swords

 

The Knight of Swords starts us off. What I find amusing is that there isn’t a sword on this card. However, a Hawk, their talons, and beak certainly could cut you like a knife. There is more to the Hawk, though. Many times in my travel  I will spot a Hawk in a tree or on a power line. True and rare beauty is when you are lucky enough to see one in flight.So what does this have to do with this reading? Think about the Hawk sitting high on the powerline or a billboard taking in all that is around him. He is looking at the big picture. He uses his vision to seize the opportunities that are being presented to him. Sometimes he has to get creative to accomplish his task. So taking those things and apply them to your daily life. Look at the big picture are there opportunities that will help you do you need to get more creative? If not it is certainly time to do so.

The Tower

The Tower is only reinforcing what I wrote above. It’s time to get out of your comfort zone and break things up. We are in a great time of transition and you need to let go of the things that are no longer serving you. By clearing out the old stuff or habits you are making way for the new and good things to come to you.

five-of-swords

The Five of Swords is telling us to take back our power. We can take control and make plans we don’t have to live in fear. Sure things aren’t set in stone but unless you change your attitude things will not change. So, instead of handing your power over to others and allowing them to dictate your life know that you have some control. Remember though that the first steps in taking back your power will be frightening. It is always easier to lay blame on someone else when we have relinquished control.

The Emperor

The Emperor is very fitting as it is resting on the Knight of Swords and the Tower. Look, at him, he is high above and surveying everything. This is the reoccurring theme this week. Look around you. What do you see? Where do you need to make changes? This is the time for your to make changes. It appears you are ready to head the Five fo Swords advice and take back your power. Own who you are, remember you can’t please everyone.

two-of-wands

The Two fo Wands, I love this interpretation of this card. Looks like there are choices waiting for you. You hold the key and well the power. Which do you choose?  This feels like you are allowing yourself to be open to the possibility of a grand adventure. You’ve decided that you are up for the task at hand, no matter how hard the challenge is. You are ready to take that next step.

Resting on the Tower and The Five of Swords well this is kind of your reward for doing what you had to do. The reward for walking through the challenges and coming out on the other end.

eight-of-wands

With the Eight of Wands, we are being shown all the possibilities that are in front of us. You’ve made your choice and are now ready to be the hawk and survey what you really want. Take aim and head in the direction you choose but remember now that Mercury is direct it will be much easier to see the direction that is truly calling you.

The above says all that needs to be said about it resting on the Emperor and the Two of Wands. Survey and look at the big picture you hold the key to your destiny.

four-of-wandsreversed

The Four of Wands reversed may make you feel like you were on a roll only to have it taken away but that isn’t the case. The view isn’t as bleak as it appears. While there is darkness, I feel that this is more of a start. In order for anything to grow it must be watered and nurtured. It has to have good roots. Look at this as making strong roots. You have your vision you can see it more clearly than you have been able to in a while, now find your focus.

eight-of-coins

The Eight of Coins, (the second eight of the reading. A little more info about the numerology can be found here.) What this card is telling us is to figure out a true plan. If you are writing then go back through and see what you can scrap. If you are thinking of returning to school, find a way to make it happen. Studying what you really want and finding a way to make it a reality is very important right now.

Best Advice for this Week: Look at the big picture. Take Back your power and own yourself. You have the keys to look at what you really want time to start nurturing it and making it become a reality.Remember you’ve had the power all along it is just a matter of you choosing to change your destiny.

I hope you have a good week. Don’t forget the Full Moon report will be out this week. If you want a reading you can schedule one at ReadingsbyDauna.com

New Moon Reading – November 29, 2016

20161127_134637.jpg

Here we are after a very busy week with the New Moon reading. Time is flying as this year draws to a close. For this New Moon, I opted to use the Housewives Tarot as it just felt right. Sometimes no matter what deck you might want to use the guides have a way of directing you to the deck of choice.  Astrologically the New Moon is in Sagittarius. For more info about the Astrology of the New Moon, I refer you to AstrologyKing site: here.

Well, let’s get started on the reading.

the-chariot

The first card up is The Chariot. For many, the Chariot denotes moving forward or travel. This new moon is favorable for making plans for travel as well. Let’s dig deeper to really look at the cards to see what’s in store. First up, the wagon looks like it ready and waiting. However, the two ladies in the front seem to be studying their options. Is the risk really worth it? Well, if she were to reaccess what’s in her bag she would see that she has already made gains.

For you, I would think carefully about the risk you are contemplating. Think about what potential gains or movement you can make. Ask yourself these questions? One is it worth the risk? Will I be in a better position or will I be in a worse place? Know that when you take a risk it is better to take a calculated risk as opposed to one where you rush in and throw all caution to the wind.

 

king-of-swords

King of Swords – While he has the biggest, he has a problem that can’t be solved without making changes. So the message here is to take a good look at your life. Where do you need to make changes? For some this might mean going through and getting rid of things we no longer need.

This is very fitting next to the Chariot as you have to look at what you can take with you. Now, this doesn’t mean that you are physically going anywhere, but even in our daily lives, we carry around too many things that no longer serve us. We carry around baggage from the past. Past hurts and anger that does nothing but continue to affect us every day. It is time to reevaluate and let go of those things. You want your love life to work out differently then quit focusing on what someone else did to you. While there are times that we can see shades of someone else that hurt us, use it as just a reminder but don’t pass judgment on someone you are just starting to know. Remember people can change and sometimes when we have been hurt in the past we put up a wall to dissuade others from knowing us. So take the time to get to know them better and if they are still showing shades that make you uncomfortable then walk away. However, if they are showing you their true self and one that your soul delights in you’ll know you made the right choice for the both of you.

So the message here is release what isn’t serving you.

the-moon

The Moon is offering us dreams of all the things we desire. What I like about this card is that she is peaceful and the energy in the card appears positive. Some Moon cards offer a darker take. This card is telling us to find what makes us happy. Listen to our dreams, they are offering us clues to our waking world. Our dreams are showing us how to better our lives in ways we can’t think of in our waking hours. Embrace them

Next to the King of Swords – it is all about problem-solving. If you can remember the info you are getting as you travel through dreamland, jot some notes down and study them. I suspect you will see things differently. This can also apply if you meditate. Your answers are there for finding happiness and peace.

ace-of-wands

The Ace of Wands – this is telling us to tidy up a little. This is more about appearances than anything. As you are starting a new journey you have to put your best foot forward even as you may be delving into the shadows that lurk in your personality.

Resting on the Chariot and the King of Swords this is telling you to be clear about your intentions and the problems you hope to overcome. What is it that you are seeking to change and overcome.

justice

Justice: no one wants to get smacked with a wooden spoon but the odd thing about this image for me is that no one seems to be really taking action. While the Sucker is flying and her hand is raised this is just a threat. She is smiling and most parents don’t smile when giving punishment. Sometimes we need just the shock to get us back in line.

On top of the King of Swords and the Moon – this feels as if you have placed yourself in a situation where you took on too much and have been working to figure a way out of it. You want to be happy but haven’t been able to totally embrace it because of the impending ramifications of your problems coming to a head. While you may feel like you’re about to get the beat down of your life, understand that sometimes that the lesson comes with just a threat of failure to get you on the correct course.

ten-of-pentacles

The Ten of Pentacles is showing us what we desire is in our grasp.We can see and feel that we finally have what we want. In fact, there is a good chance we’ve had it all along, we just didn’t realize it. Sometimes the problem that we see really isn’t a problem at all.

On the Ace of Wands and Justice – Sometimes the problem that we see really isn’t a problem at all. We’ve allowed it to fester and spread out into different areas of our lives. If you can clean up your thinking and give yourself a slap back into reality you might discover that you were creating your own problems.

 

knight-of-cups

The Knight of Cups is telling us to celebrate our success. Especially for overcoming the toxic thinking that has hampered us from people and things we want in our lives.

Best Advice: Work through all that has kept you stuck. Look at it truthfully. See what changes you need to make and know that even though you might get overwhelmed at times there will be many times you will put on your best face and move through life. Start with your core and really think bout what you want. Don’t let fear rule you and understand that maybe what you’ve been searching for has been there the whole time.You have the power to make the needed changes. To Quote Glenda, “You’ve had the Power all along.”

Wishing you a wonderful New Moon. Remember to write your intentions out (10 max) and then manifest them. I usually burn mine in a cauldron on the day of the New Moon and release the energy.
