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 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 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.
