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.



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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.



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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.



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.


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.


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.


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. 😉



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.


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 January 8 -14, 2016



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.




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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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 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 – 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 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.


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: 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.


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.



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.

Weekly Tarot for November 13 – 19, 2016


The weekly has some of the same themes as the Full Moon but there appears to be a little more positive take even though it seems as if it will be busy.

Four of Pentacles

The Four of Pentacles is offering us the opportunity to seek out advice from someone more knowledgeable. The only issue with this is that you feel the disapproval even though there may not be any. This is at your core from past experiences and painful lessons. Work through this and know that they are only trying to help. Listen and appreciate but don’t let what you feel as judgment weigh you down.



You are at a point that you feel that you need to make everything count. There is nothing that can be wasted. You haven’t yet realized that seeds you planted a while ago are not coming to fruition. That’s okay it is better to be frugal than to rush in and end up with nothing.

five of wands

The Battle has begun but it is with another or just yourself over the things you want to do yet can’t? Find your way through and know that truly no harm is meant this is just merely a test for your to get your head clear on everything that lies ahead.

Two of Wands

Being ground, proud and focused are the things you need this week, even if you don’t actually feel that way you have to make others see you that way. Own the vision of your future that you see and not the craziness that you are living right now. Remember this is a test fro you to get the kinks worked out.

Resting on the Four of Pentacles and the Seven of Pentacles, trust in the future that you see. Know that it may not be exactly how you created it but it will be something that you can be proud of.


Here is that head game, the one where we start beating yourself up and look at all the things that have left out life. It might be a person or it might be some possessions, no matter it isn’t worth getting trapped in dark thoughts. This is your shadow self, trying to sabotage your good. This is making you question if you are deserving.

Resting on the Seven of Pentacles and the Five of Wands, all I can say it stop beating yourself up. We all do it because it is a learned pattern but it si time to Snap out of it.

six of pen

Good News there is money but more important than that, is the fact that there is Joy and Happiness. When you own yourself and get out of your way you can celebrate the lessons you’ve made it through.

Resting on the Two of Wands and the Eight of Cups find a balance and learn to enjoy life. Find a way to release the worry and the anxiety you feel, you’ll feel much better if you do.

Ace of Pen

You’ve built a better foundation. The lessons fo the past have taught you well and you feel much stronger going forward. You know what you need to do to stay on track and oh yeah, a new beginning with Money. This could just be in your relationship with money no matter it is a new beginning and you are going to embrace it.

Ace of Wands

So one new beginning brings in another new beginning. There are a lot of changes headed your way and they will start out slow at first but as you embrace them they will come much quicker. Part of this is dealing with the emotional Full Moon but this is about changing your life and the world around you. While it can be frightening embrace it, you’ll be amazed at the good that will come into your life in the smallest and sometimes the greatest of ways.

the Magician

This is a biggy. You’ve come to master your skills and will find balance even in the storm that is around you. Focus on your tasks and improving your skills. You are making your dreams a reality and have all the tools to make it happen.

Best advice: Don’t allow others to make you feel judged. Know that the battle with your shadow self will reappear at times but know that you can move past it. Just work on you and find your light. Heal the past hurts and reframe your world and your past.

Change is coming and you must be prepared. It is time for you to suit up and get in the game and create.

Thanks for reading and have a great week,

Weekly Tarot Reading for October 30 – November 5, 2016


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.


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: 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.


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.


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.



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.
