Weekly Tarot for June 12 – 18, 2017

20170610_125406-1How are we all faring after the Full Moon? For some I know it was a harder moon than others. For some, it was an energizing event and yet others got the clarity they were seeking. This week we may have a few challenges shaking off what we went through this weekend. That’s okay, just remember we will always have ups and downs and we can always get through them if we try.

20170611_145410

The Seven of Cups – Hmm, some would say, we are focusing too much on our dreams instead of the harsh reality that awaits us.  However, that being said in all the manifestation and positive energy work we are told to do that exact thing. We are told that in order to attract the positive that we must believe in the positive. Now, “I’m not saying that you should check out of your reality and embrace escapism. However, you should embrace and understand both if possible. Understand the reality of your situation and look at the future you envision. If the future you see something that you can obtain and if so what will it take to get there?

When I look at this, it feels more like accept what you must, but change what you can. Our reality is an every change concept of the time we live in. One small action can have a long term rippling of consequences. So instead of living in fear figure out a plan to make the changes, you can. The things we have to live and can’t change we must look and analyze and reframe. Change your focus and find your way past the dark.

20170611_145323

Five of Wands – Face those who are rushing in. This is once again about facing your reality. There are certain things we can’t change and well the ones that challenge us can be defeated with logic and reason in some cases. So before heading into battle weigh your options. It is best to say what needs to be said and try to negotiate. Rushing in may just waste energy and time and nothing will resolve. By being open and forthright you will be able to resolve your dilemma.

20170611_145241

Two of Swords – This week we need to find balance.  The person that we thought might be coming for us might actually be the one to help. Help is something that many will need this week, so take a hand if it is offered and if someone else is needing that tether make sure you pay it forward and offer to be that hand or shoulder someone needs.

20170611_145156

Three of Cups – Celebrate and plan you made it through and now you can see a future that might actually have you doing something that you’re passionate about. Discuss with like-minded people your ideas and see if there is a need or an audience for your work. more important than that is enjoy the others that you surround yourself with. They are truly a gift.

Resting on the Seven of Cups and the Five of Wands. As you sit down to discuss and celebrate don’t neglect the truth that was your reality, you might suddenly discover that you have more than a little in common with others.  In fact, your past might actually help someone’s current reality.

20170611_145108

The Emperor – Sits in judgment of all others.  Keep in mind while he may be judging and looking angry it isn’t stopping anyone from doing what they want too. So, this week if you find someone judging you or you are judging someone. Realize that the opinion of yourself or of others is just that an opinion. It only means something if someone values it. If there is no value then you are just wasting time or they are. Enjoy life and quit worrying so much about others.

Resting on the Five of Wands and The Two of Swords. The battles in the past don’t matter. Look at what you’ve gained now. Realize that you can just others based on your past experiences because while some may seem like another version of someone they may not be. If they are then you have to take a moment and look inside and see why you are attracted to this type of person.

20170611_145019

The World – Transformation. Shedding the past and starting a new. We’ve been having new beginnings coming up almost every week lately and while we may have had some small steps in making changes there are still more to come. Embrace the changes and truly look at what you want your life to become and bring it to reality. Understand it will take time but know that when you look back years from now it will seem like it happened so quickly almost in a blink of an eye.

Best Advice – Look at your life objectively in every sense, from People to things to your job. Make amends and offer help or accept help. You’re going to discover there are more who will help in your life if you just stop with the judgment. Free yourself of the past and past hurts. Heal and embrace the transformation.

Full Moon Reading June 9, 2017

20170606_130627-1

 

First, before anyone thinks I just rushed out and purchased the fabric to just cash in, I will tell you I’ve had it for a year. I have an old school Wonder Woman Barbie and my hubby gave me the old series on DVD  a few years ago with a Wonder Woman Business card holder.  I do admit that I wanted to celebrate the movie so shoot me for being a little kitschy. Now, that I’ve outed myself as a fangirl l

Now, that I’ve outed myself as a fangirl let’s talk about the real reason you stopped by the blog and that’s the Full Moon. While yes, it is known as the Strawberry Moon this one is going to be even more intense as Jupiter is coming out of Retrograde. It has been in Retrograde since February 6, 2017, and will be direct on June 9th. Keep in mind that Jupiter will not be moving forward until September 9, 2017.  Couple that with the Full Moon at 18 degrees Sagittarius you have to expect some pretty powerful energy.

For more on the Astrology of the Full Moon go to Astrology King site.

For even more Astrology head over to the AquariusPapers.

Now, that we’ve covered the Astrology let’s look and see what the cards have to say. We’ll start with the Cosmic Tarot to see what is ahead.

20170606_132058

Judgment – Not a bad way to start off. After all, it’s about breaking free from what has held you back. For some, it may be the opinions that others hold or unfounded fears. Whatever, has been blocking you is now being released and if it is pain then this is the time to heal. Basic in the light and heal your pain. Release fear, anguish, and the hurt. Heal your heart and your soul. Find the joy and reconnect with people and your dreams.

20170606_132121

Two of Pentacles – Once again not surprising as we need to walk away from certain things. Time to let go and move on. Just be careful that the steps you take are proper. Sometimes when we discover a new found joy we may begin to crave it like a drug. Stay level headed and balanced. This isn’t a time to throw total caution to the wind.

20170606_132146

The Fool –  I’m sure you’re thinking but she just said not to throw caution to the wind. That still holds true. We can start new projects and new beginnings just do it cautiously. Be a calculated risk taker. There is no need to risk everything to try and gain something that may not work out.

20170606_132206

Prince of Pentacles – This guy’s attitude has been plaguing us all week. Being stubborn and not wanting to listen. This has a lot to do with people not wanting to embrace change or for that matter even challenge. There is a certain level of respect some feel that they are entitled to the problem with that is some truly do not deserve the respect.

Now, how does this play out with our cards? Well, this will be a person that you’re going to have to handle differently than you have in the past. I’m not saying burn everything to the ground and give him a big FU! What, I’m saying is negotiate. Especially since he is resting on Judgement and the Two of Pentacles. Keep in mind this doesn’t have to be a male this is just someone with the attitude. So keep your eyes open as they make you an offer, see if it is what you really want and remember to calculate the outcome.

20170606_132225

Two of Wands – Be proud of who you are and own it. You’ve come a long way and your roots are firmly planted in the ground. You are energized and are ready to tackle new challenges.  Know you can achieve what you want to as long as you plan.

Resting on the Two of Pentacles and The Fool be a calculated risk taker.

20170606_132242

Wheel of Fortune – You can almost hear the studio audience say it before the theme song starts. Seriously though we’ve arrived at this point as we are ready to take that spin and see how we can change our lives. Be ready check through your plans and well give it a whirl.

20170606_132306

Lastly, for the Tarot, we have the Six of Wands – Opportunities are being presented are you ready to take them. Spirit is guiding you here you just have to make the choice. Once again look at them carefully and when the one is right you will know and you will discover something you’ve longed for.

Now, let’s dig into the Oracle cards. They are a little bit of a guide on what you should do to achieve your intentions during this cycle.

20170606_132331

Tick -Tock – For some this may feel like time is wasting away. It is going to quickly and for others well they might feel as if they have too much time on their hands. What this is saying though is no matter how we visualize it we need to know how to use it and manage it but even more important than that, we must learn to treasure the time we are given with the people we cherish and doing the things we love to do.

20170606_132352

Observe – This fits very well with our Prince of Pentacles. Sometimes in order to know how we need to proceed, e must observe others actions. If someone is in a foul mood approaching them about something you feel they may already disagree with is not a wise idea. Another thing by observing the details of things we can see what we need to focus on and how we can move forward and be successful.

20170606_132034

Regeneration – Of course being a fan of Doctor Who this is the first thing that comes to my mind. But it is a tool that you will need as you break free and heal. you will have to regenerate and grow come into a new era of who you are. By owning you this will come to you a lot easier than it has in the past.

20170606_132416

Yin – When I pulled this card I thought it was very fitting since I had chosen Wonder Woman as my backdrop. Yin is about the feminine principle of receptivity. This is about gathering information and taking cues from the universe. This is about you receiving what you’ve put out there.

Best Advice – Breaking free of the past. The last New Moon offered us transformation that has carried over and will continue to do so. Be a calculated risk taker. Weigh everything out and when you face opposition learn how to work and negotiate with the other person. Be proud of who you are and spin the big wheel, there are opportunities waiting.

Value your time and observe others around you. You are growing and regenerating blossom into a more positive version of you and be receptive to the Universe.

Weekly Tarot for June 4, -10, 2017

20170602_211947

This week we have a Full Moon on the 9th which I will cover later this week. I know I used the Housewives Tarot last week and well it called again to me tonight. Nothing wrong with that as they can be a fun little deck to work with.  So let’s dig in and see what message they are offering.

20170602_211922

Ten of Cups – Let’s live it up a bit. You’re ready to show the world what you have to offer. Even if things are going perfectly this isn’t the time you will let others see that they aren’t. You will be putting on your best face and allowing them to see your best efforts.

This is also speaking of you having the mastery to take any situation no matter how negative it might be and turn it into a positive. After all one should always look on the bright side.

20170602_211905

Two of Cups – Connect or reconnect. This is about the people that are your tribe the ones that have your back. Understand that this is a time where mutual admiration can be shared. You are equal and dare I say things are as close to perfect as they can get. You will step into a positive frame of mind as you embrace those in your life.

20170602_211849

The Moon – Sweet Dreams and perfect sleep sometimes are just a mere illusion. However, sometimes in our dream state, we can experience the answers and resolutions we’ve been seeking. Be prepared to have an Epiphany or two this week as you sleep and wake with the answers that you’ve longed for.

20170602_211828

Page of Wands – Think back to being a kid and how easy it was to create the world or any other fantasy you wanted. Tap into that memory and to your dreams. Your creativity will be on high this week. Allow those ideas to come. Write them down and pull them out when you get stuck.

Resting on the Ten of Cups and the Two of Cups put your best ideas out there. Tap into the past as well as your future vision. Create something that is both nostalgic and futuristic. Understand that somewhere in your current mind frame you will form an idea that will allow you to show off not only your skills but also your talent.

20170602_211811

Six of Swords – This week we can start letting our anxiety and worry go. What we fear is not happening and it is time for us to not live in it. Even if things aren’t perfect we’ve learned that we can turn things around and make the best of it.

Resting on the Two of Cups and The Moon – Partnership and our answers will help us navigate the obstacles that have caused us to fear certain things. By asking for help and using fresh ideas and approaches we will soon discover that we can move forward.

20170602_211751

The High Priestess – She certainly can be a saucy wench but your focus this week is on your intuition and keeping secrets. Sometimes as we come into our intuition we don’t want to share just in case we’re wrong. That’s natural but there is a little more to it. Sometimes when we get something we’re hoping for a different outcome. So this week when you get something, write it down with the time and the date.  This will be your confirmation and if you’re right awesome and if you’re not don’t despair. There may very well be truth in the information you received just not as blatant as you may have initially thought. Sometimes messages need to be decoded or have some time pass.

 

Best Advice this Week: Put your best foot forward and connect or reconnect with your tribe. Pay attention to your dreams and creative ideas and find a way to step away from your fears. Lastly, listen to your intuition as it is on high. Write it all down as you will need to dissect it later.

Weekly Tarot for May 28 – June 3, 2017

20170527_100640

There was some wild energy with the Super New Moon and you will definitely be feeling it for a while. Don’t worry this is just shaking things up so we can make room for the more positive things that are coming. So try to remember to stay out of your way and your head.

20170527_100836

First up we have the lovely Nine of Swords – This is a card that definitely speaks of you being up in your head. There are times when worry and fear can lead our head to become a toxic waste dump of the negative. All it can take for some is an unexplained glance or an off-kilter comment for one’s mind to ego into overdrive.

If you find yourself in this position this week where you feel that the world is against you or at least one or two people then I recommend taking a step back. Clear your head and then reframe. The fact is that nothing may be going on at all. They could have been talking about someone or something else. They might have thought of something to make them look that way.

20170527_100932

Seven of Cups – We have choices, in fact, many to make in the near future. The simple question is which do you choose? That seems simple enough but the truth is there are many possibilities and you should choose carefully. A good thing to look at if you can is your motivation for the choice. What do you want to do it? If it’s because it’s something to do well that’s fine if it is something simple like going to dinner or the movie.  Actually, know someone who responds about their first marriage that they only got married because it was something to do. Guess how that worked out, it failed.

So, if you are making a life choice, you may want to think of your motivation. Think of the possible outcomes. These are things you need to pay attention too. Definitely, don’t do it because you are trying to rush out of one situation and into another. Please remember to keep a clear head when making a choice and try and listen to your gut.

20170527_100957

Three of Pentacles – You’ll be working to secure a strong foundation this week. In order to do so, one must have put thought into the choices they’ve made. If you are secure with your decisions then you can build a much more stable future in the coming months. So put in the work you need to and be patient it may take time for things to develop but when they do you will be pleased.

20170527_101028

Ace of Wands – Getting your foundation strong is great but you also need to start a new with spirit and passion. By getting out of your head you might discover that life is much lighter than you see. Think about the life you need and want.  Since this is the Housewives deck I would say that you should also be tying up loose ends. Things that no longer serve you it is time to let go. By using this energy you will soon discover that life is much freer than you have felt in the past and you will experience a growth on many levels.

Resting on the Nine of Swords and Seven of Cups – the cards are telling us to clean up our old thinking. Stop judging people based on old experiences and relationships. While some situations may seem similar it doesn’t mean they are. So clean out your thoughts and explore relationships and your life. Life may never be perfect but joy can be found if you allow it.

20170527_101057

Six of Cups – That sure is a lot of Pink Lemonade, while you might love to drink them all. It might be better to share. By sharing ourselves and our life we can offer people a chance to share in our joy. When we share memories and life experiences we can bond and explore different possibilities of life.

Resting on the Seven of Cups and the Three of Pentacles by being open we can lay a foundation of new relationships and experiences in our life that will bring us joy in the future. When we share we receive something invaluable in our life. We receive a blessing of another’s light and joy. So share your journey and discover that you have more in common with others that you realize.

20170527_101127

Lastly, we have the Ten of Pentacles. Success or at least we can see the possibility of the future we want. You can see your effort and handwork is taking root and that in the not so distant future things will be much better than they are currently. Know and accept this. Life in this thought and breathe it in.  Continue your handwork and honor your journey.

Best Advice: Stay out of your head. Look at your motivation and the possible outcomes of your choices. Build a strong foundation and clean up any loose ends. Share the journey and enjoy your success no matter how small.

New Moon Tarot/Oracle for May 25, 2017

20170521_220558

The New Moon is Thursday, May 25, 2017, at  02:46 PM  Chicago time. The New Moon is at 4 degrees of Gemini and is a Super Moon a term we usually see with a Full Moon. For more on the Astrology click on the link and go to Astrology King to get the low down.  

Let’s see what the cards are telling us. This week I Chose the Revelations Tarot and the Wisdom of the Oracle to give us a full picture.

20170522_214057

The Hierophant almost feels as he is telling us to pause for a moment and collect ourselves. Do we have everything in order? Do we have a plan or are we just rushing in hoping it all works out for the best? Take a moment, survey the path that lies ahead of you. Is it where you want to be? That is the message this card is providing us as we step into the energy of the New Moon.

20170522_214131

The Four of Cups Reversed. The good news here is that you have more control. You get to pick and choose what you wish to be in your life instead of holding on to everything for dear life. She is actually joyful at what she is discovering. While there may be physical discoveries in your life that create joy. This will also be a time where you find joy in your self-discovery.  Don’t be frightened to try something new or for that matter to release some of the past. If you take a step back and reframe it you might look at the good you shared with the person instead of thinking of the bad. While remembering can be a good thing don’t get stuck in there. Let the negative aspects go and work on healing yourself. Remember you are in control and this is about you finding a way to bring more joy into your life.

20170522_214150

The Knight of Swords Reversed is showing us that we are ready to rush into things blindly and cut away what we don’t need in our life. We are tired of being stuck in a rut and know that we must embrace the coming changes.

Resting on the Hierophant and the Four of Cups Reversed: Know that while there is a lot of energy, you must remember that there is a needed plan in place. Yes, it is tempting to cut ties and collect all that you want but you have to remember that there is a reaction for every action. So be cautious as you make changes.

20170522_214228

The King of Pentacles right after the Reversed Knight makes me think of the Family Matters Character Steve Urkel saying; “Did I do that?” The King is almost stoic after his wild ride, really not so surprising when you consider the energy he used. For us, though this is once again making us stop and think about our actions. When one takes swift actions to change their life even in the smallest way there is bound to be a few people that will question what you have done. The thing is you are willing to listen to things others say you are not indifferent the only change comes as you will not allow them to steal your energy or change your mind.  You are listening to your gut and intuition and doing what feels right for you.

 

20170522_214258

The Fool says okay I listened but I’m off on my journey. You can join me or you can stay but understand you can’t stop me. You see what many don’t at this time. You feel you see your path of transformation and are ready to make it real. You’re ready to do the work and create your life with the way you see it. You understand that it may not be perfect but you also know that there will be lessons and joy on this journey.

20170522_214457

The King of Swords reversed some may say that he is blocking his sight but I feel it is more about trusting his knowing. Trusting his gut versus what may deceive that is in front of his eyes. This is a time to meditate and send the energy out to manifest your world. The New Moon is a perfect time to set your intentions for this cycle. Once you do and you focus that energy you might be surprised at how things move the way you want them too.

Now on to the Oracle Portion. The Oracle cards are a little bit of a guide on what you should do to achieve your intentions during this cycle.

20170522_214018

By The Book, what exactly does that mean? Following the same path, everyone else does. Subscribing to the same old norms and ideas. Sure they might work for some but there is also the possibility that you should write your own rule book to a certain point. While there are certain rules that are mandatory there are many that are not. So if you want to experiment with your dress and some feel you shouldn’t because you’re too old to wear that. There is a rule in some eyes as to what you can wear but whose rule is it? They may have a point if you’re showing off your goods to the world but if you are comfortable then it really shouldn’t matter.

So during this cycle see what rules really apply and what don’t. Remember this is about you changing your life.

20170522_213949

Truth Be Told – This card came up last weekend as well. In this reading, it is all about you owning your truth. Speak it proudly and understand some won’t agree. That’s fine as they have their own truth. We all live life and experience truth in a different way. My truth may not be the same as your’s but that doesn’t make it any less truthful in my eyes. This is one of our greatest flaws as well as our greatest gifts. It’s a flaw as for some a lie can still be the truth but the greatest gift is when the truth can offer so much clarity and freedom. So speak your Truth and say it loud and say it proud.  Well, not too loud that you disturb someone or get yourself into trouble. 😉

 

20170522_213901

All That Glitters – Certainly, we all know by now that all that glitters isn’t gold. Heck, usually it is gold plated and can even turn your skin green.  What does that mean for us? While you aspire to be another because of the success they have achieved, remember that you don’t know all that it took. While they may put on a smile and share with the world how fantastic life is they may be hiding something that you wouldn’t imagine. SO during this period instead of looking to be inspired by others. Look at yourself and see what you can create to inspire you. Be honest with yourself about your talents and embrace them. Know that by doing so you are being real and stepping into the strength of our journey.

20170522_213827

A Change In The Wind – This is where things get tricky. While this reading has focused on change when it arrives sometimes we are terrified of what it might bring. If we could be patient and let things unfurl we might see how good tings will be. Fear can make us stop in our transformation because life is much easier when we have a routine and we are comfortable even if we’re dealing with dark and depressing things.

When my Grandmother was in a care facility she would complain that her suite mate was stealing diapers and other things. She complained everytime I talked to her. So when it was time for a meeting with the administration I asked to have her moved. My Gram who was part of this meeting protested and said no she didn’t want to move. When we left the meeting I asked her why. She told me it was because she knew what she was dealing with and she could put up with it. She didn’t want a new suite mate as she didn’t know what she would get.  This is a prime example of blocking that change.

So know that change is coming and that you need to embrace it as it is time.

Best Course of Advice: Stop and take in all the details and make a plan. Enjoy the discoveries about yourself and the world around you. When you feel a need to break free from the things you feel are holding you back, stop and think of your long-term goal. Listen to others concern and then let them know of your journey. Remember to manifest your intuitions.

A Little Food For Thought: As we step into the New Moon this Thursday make your intentions and make them clear. Note that as you see the transformations in your life occurring it is not the time to back down and think that everything will work out because you put it out there. Yes, our intentions have energy and they can draw what we need to us. However, if we are not receptive or are not willing to do the work our fortunes can reverse just as quickly as they came to us. So remember to be clear and be ready to do what you have to, to bring things to fruition.

Whew, I know it was a long one but I think it should offer some direction and clarity. Hang in there, things are shaking up and we will see many changes in our daily world as well as our long-term views.

Weekly Tarot for 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.

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!
