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 7 – 13, 2017

20170503_154921

First up there will be a second post this week as there will be a Full Moon on the 10th. This week’s reading amused me as the final card is the same as the final in the New Moon from a couple fo weeks ago.  It’s fitting when I look at the cards that are leading up to this guy again.

20170503_155643

The Seven of Wands is offering me a bit of a different feel tonight. It feels as if your intuitive side is meeting up with your guides and ancestors. This isn’t something that you are consciously aware of as most of the time this is occurring when you are sleeping or at least in an unplugged state.  They’re trying to offer you direction and guidance. It is up to you to make the choice of what you need to pursue.

20170503_212955

The Ace of Swords is telling us to fly. We have the ability to see our truth and to speak it. It’s the time to follow our passion and release what has kept us grounded.  You are being energized and will find that ideas are coming much easier, could be with the help of your guides that you are seeing more of how things are interconnected.

20170503_155549

Eight of Cups is all watery including the sign of Pisces there in the Moon. The glasses are all submerged and it appears that he is reaching blindly for them. To me, this says that the choices that you are mulling over maybe made with your intuition.  Between the last card and this one, I’d say your dreams are leaning toward a much grander scale than ever before. Remember though for anything to take root you have to start simple and build.

20170503_155520

The Chariot is all about moving forward but now you have the illumination you need. Know as you charge forward that the water may be rough but you are in control.  You hold the reins as well as the light. Remember you have the power so charge forward.

Resting on the Eight of Wands and the Ace of Swords, use the connection you have with your guides and ancestors to move past the things that have blocked you. You can cut ties and own your true self. Know that you can fly above the things that have you tethered and will succeed, it is up to you to do what you must.

20170503_155436

The Nine of Wands is telling us that when we chose, remember to be humble. Even though we may see something grand we will only truly appreciate it if we work for it. Humility is something that will serve us on our journey. Also, know that even if you only chose one at this time you will have many more opportunities in the future.

Resting on the Ace of Swords and the Eight of Cups. Know that you’ve reclaimed your power more than that you’ve learned to trust yourself and your instincts. Offer thanks for what you’ve discovered and know to be true, more opportunities are coming your way, you just might not feel them yet. I say feel because you’ve plugged into your passion and that isn’t something we always see. It is more of a feeling.

20170503_155358

I said Passion and now we have the Two of Cups. Though for me this is never really about the ripping off one’s clothes off this is more about your partner and the one who you see as your equal. This is what helps keep you grounded on your quest. It could be special someone, it could be a family. Whatever it is that brings you joy to your home know that you need to embrace it because you’re going to find your first real supporters there.

Resting on the Chariot, if you’re not in a relationship you may find one coming in very quickly. This could be a new friendship, a romantic partnership or even a business partner. Whichever it is, be ready as there is one coming and it will be one that is very good for you and your move forward.

20170503_155329

The King of Swords tells us that this partner will speak their truth. They will be honest and fair but they will also offer you the chance to succeed. They will show you a path that they’ve taken and how they made it. Be prepared to impress.

Resting on the Chariot and the Nine of Wands know this is part of your journey forward. When this person gives you guidance remember to be grateful and humble if need be. This could be an opportunity that will change your world and give you that chance you’ve longed for.

20170503_155259

Okay, no lie when I looked at the Ten of Coins here the first thing that popped into my head was, ‘Here are the keys to the Kingdom.’ That my friend would be a rapid rise.  I’m sure it was just the key in the image, but if we look at the riches that is in the box you have to wonder if this isn’t more of a reward for our hard work. After all, wouldn’t it be wonderful if we get paid to do what we love? However, the other way to look at this is to think of all the riches in your life. Think of the things and people that make your life rich every day.

Resting on the King of Swords and the Ten of Coins if the bucks start rolling in remember to keep a level head and stay humble. As quickly as the riches come in they can quickly go away.

20170503_155221

Lastly, we have our old friend the magician. Spinning and creating all that we need. This is the biggest part of this reading. We have all of our tools and skills, it’s time to turn each one of them into something with meaning. Think of that lightning as the energy required for your magnificent creation. Be amazed as you watch it grow.

Best Course of Action for the Week: Connect with the message you’re getting. Let your imagination take flight and you will soon see the opportunities that are being presented.  Be humble and thankful for all that you have. Know that a new partnership is on its way and you will soon discover riches in many areas of your life. Lastly, focus your energy on your creations.

New Moon April 26, 2017

20170425_193849

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

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

So, let’s look at the Tarot:

20170425_195708

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

20170425_195613

 

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

 

20170425_195519

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

20170425_195428

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

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

20170425_195231

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

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

20170425_195144

 

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

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

 

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

 

20170425_194152

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

20170425_194725

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

20170425_194959

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

20170425_195045

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

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

Remember don’t forget to set your intentions.
