New Moon Reading for June 23, 2017

20170619_141307

The New Moon is here again in Chicago it will happen 9:30 pm on June at 2° Cancer. It’s being listed as a Super Moon. The next Super will be in December of this year and it just means it’s closer to the Earth. For the Astrology of the New Moon, I’ll link you to the Astrology King site.

The Crystals I used today are Citrine a great stone for manifesting and Amethyst for its healing and spiritual properties.  This is a great time working on continuing to heal as well as manifesting what you want in your life. If you would like more info on either the Citrine, go here or the Amethyst go here. I have referred you to the Howl at the Moon site, the owner is very knowledgeable about crystals and is a great resource not to mention reasonably priced.

So now that we’ve gone through the Astrology and the Crystals let’s take a look at the cards. For this New Moon, I chose the Legend: The Arthurian Tarot by Anna-Marie Ferguson and the Wisdom of the House of the Night Oracle by P.C. Cast and Colette Baron-Reid. Let’s take a deeper look at what the cards are showing us.

20170619_140345

We’re not starting off on the best foot with the Nine of Spears – Wind Harps of War. Sure this could be personal and we need to be prepared for the worst and get things in order. However, with all that has been happening on the World stage, heck for that matter even possible closer to home be prepared. I just read a headline that a customer was upset that his Latte was wrong and when another customer interviewed well the upset customer started stabbing the other one. So my warning is that people are angry and volatile currently so be prepared. Hopefully the only effects this will have in your sphere of the world will be what you see in the news. Remember though be prepared.

20170619_140421

Eight of Cups – Chapel Perilous: Well right off the bat we see that our path is blocked. We must find another way. This could be related to our Nine of Spears. That warning of being prepared. However, as ominous as this card looks we can use this to our advantage. Instead of rushing into a path that could do us harm we are breaking free from a potential hazard. This is the time for us to take control of our lives to understand that we are in control. We might discover that what we thought was wanted was not what we wanted or needed at all and this is a much better path to be on.

20170619_140500

The Fool – Percivale: No big surprise with the Eight of Cups just told us we’re on a new path. The darkness that we might have been feeling is now lifting. We see hope for the future and the potential for a better outcome. Embrace this and work off of this energy. This fits perfectly with the New Moon energy. If you are planning on starting a new business venture this is the time to start making it happen. Just make sure you’ve got everything in place.

20170619_140518

Page of Spears – The Hare Reversed: There is someone lurking about in your group that can’t be trusted. If you’re making plans make sure you don’t share until you are certain and the plans are finished. Even if they are not out to harm you they have been known to be a gossip.

Resting on the Nine of Spears and the Eight of Cups: trust your instincts when someone is around that you’re just not sure about. While you may see the possibility they will only share failure and darkness trying to dissuade you from your goal.

20170619_140535

 

Death – Gwyn AB Nudd & The Wild Hunt Reversed: The Death card never frightens me because it brings about to change, however, with it being reversed this is about us sticking with the past. We’re being resistant to change. Maybe it’s because we like our old habits and patterns just fine and we can’t see a way to shake them but the truth is we must.

The placement of this card isn’t joking around. We have the Eight of Cups and The Fool that we’re resting on. Your path to the past is blocked and you must move on. The Fool is telling you to get with the program and step away from what was holding you back. So what could be holding us back? There is the Page of Spears Reversed, if he/she had been upright, they would have been our champion but instead, they are someone that can be toxic to us. Someone that you will need to tell to get with the program or you’re going to do your own thing.

 

Five of Cups – Lancelot & Elaine: So sometimes when we put our foot down and don’t give into the whims of another we might find that we are suddenly alone. The person wasn’t willing to hear what we were saying no matter if it was for their own good. No matter what saddens we might feel, we must understand that we all have free will. There are times when they must follow their own path

As we seek more clarity of this we are greeted with Page of Spears Reversed and Death,  there is no great mystery that the past is looming and a person who we thought was a friend isn’t. Grieve for what you might have lost but understand if they are truly supposed to be in your life they will and it will be without you compromising yourself.

20170619_140749

Ten of Shields – Camelot: Everyone wants Camelot and it looks divine but to have arrived we had to go through the tribulations that we have. Be thankful you made it and as you look around you might soon discover that what was lost has been returned. Celebrate your success and your arrival. Home and family will offer much more comfort and peace. Embrace it and know what is important.

20170619_140821

The Sun – Lleu: A card of joy one that offers us a celebration of our accomplishments. There is no denying that we’ve made it past our strife as the Ten of Shields and this both dictate success. So since you found your bliss share it with the world and let them share in your joy.

20170619_140853

Eight of Shields – Wayland: Okay, so you had your celebration now it’s time to get to work. For some, this is the new Business or job opportunity and for others, it is as simple as learning something that you’ve longed too. So take this time and get on task. You are using talents that you knew you had as well as some that you weren’t aware that you had. You’re on your way to finding your passion, enjoy the discovery and all the newness in your life.

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

20170619_141201

Movement : Movement will usher in the change that we know is coming. Movement allows us to free ourselves from the restrictions that we’ve placed on ourselves and others. Now is the time to proceed, just make sure to be cautious.

20170619_141023

Chaos – Once again this shouldn’t be a shocker. As theTarot showed us there is a mischief maker in our midst and we need to be prepared for the upheaval they will try to toss our way. Know that even though things may feel like they are spinning out of control this is only a way of shaking out the old and making free for the new.

20170619_140952

Meditation – Pretty self-explanatory especially after the chaos you’ve been feeling as of late. Take time for yourself and seek the clarity you need. Develop a plan in your meditation practice that will help you in the areas where you need clarity and answers. As you meditate focus on those points and try to calm the monkey mind. As you go deeper you can ask the question in your mind that you’re seeking the answers too. Listen to your intuition for the right course of action.

20170619_140923

High Priestess of Air – Love the beauty of this card, but what is she saying. She’s telling us to be logical in our choices. While we have a great imagination and it can serve us well we need to use our logic and be reasonable. This is the time to make calculated decisions and choices. This fits in with your passion and your work. Be logical, what talents can serve you and inspire you. Be logical and not rash and you will discover a whole new path.

Best Advice – There are times during this cycle that you may feel as if you are on a plane that is going down, nose first but don’t fret. This is change rushing in to force you to make the logical choice. Understand that sometimes you must let people, behaviors, and things go. Know that some things maybe lasting but others are just temporary until you are firmly on the path you’re supposed to be on. So hang in there, remember that even though there are some rough times there is some cause for celebration before you get down to the hard work.

Weekly Tarot for June 19-25, 2017

20170617_221520This week, I decided to keep things simple. After all, there is enough going on without getting carried away. This week appears to be an interesting one and the end of the week is offering us a New Moon. One little tidbit I will give you now before the New Moon reading is that this Moon is great for those who are seeking to start a new Business venture. So if you are that person take some time this week and really invest in putting yourself out there. More on that later when I get the New Moon report out.

I’ve chosen to use Zach Wong’s Revelation Tarot, it is a fave of mine and one that I was able to read right off the bat. I plan on doing a deck review on it in the near future so keep your eyes peeled on my YouTube channel for it.

20170617_212231

The Nine of Cups – is up first and it is advising us to be open to the possibilities. By being open, ready and available there will be opportunities in the emotional and relationship areas of your life. However, also be open to all possibilities. Sometimes when we are in a certain situation a possibility can be presented that is unexpected but just what we needed.

Also, this is a Wish Card, so wish from your heart and not from your head. Don’t over think what you’re seeking. Sure it is good to weigh pros and cons but sometimes you just need to take on the experience that is offered.

20170617_212202

Charged up and ready to gothat’s what the Knight of Wands is showing us. The time to be prepared is now. There are some more changes coming and you have to be prepared to handle them because they are coming fast. In the next few months, it is time to shake off the cobwebs and plot a course. While you ride high on the dragon take a look around and see what the potential future holds. If there are some changes that are needed make them but get ready this is not the time to rest on your laurels.

20170617_212708

The Empress is offering us a little time to soak up the energy we need. Embrace the Sun and the power, after all, you can do magic and that will become more apparent as the week goes on. Some of you might be laughing saying ‘You can create magic.’ The truth is whether you are practicing Wicca or you just believe yourself to be an average run of the mill person. you have the potential to manifest with every thought and with every word that leaves your mouth, so use your magic wisely. That being said find some time to spend a little time with nature. If for whatever reason you can’t outside then take a few and look on the internet or the television to find some beauty in nature or more simple than that look outside your window.

Also, take some time to Nurture and Heal yourself this week. Sure others will seek you for your comfort and care and that is fine but in order to be there for them, one must take care of themselves first. I’m not saying tell people to leave you alone. Once again just be prepared by doing a little self-care.

20170617_212639

The Eight of Pentacles tells us that we’re almost done. Soon we can show the world what we’ve been working on. While they may sound grand it may just be the few that you care about in your own orbit. No matter this will be an important milestone for you as you move forward.

Resting on the Nine of Cups and the Knight of Pentacles, look at all the avenues you have to use your talent. This is not all for not. This passion project can be something that expands your horizons and your world view. Keep going you’re almost through.

20170617_212606

The Chariot is reinforcing the last thought, Keep Going! If you look at the reverse of the card the guy is angry that isn’t the case and while some might feel that our driver on the chariot looks a little distracted, I like to think that she is keeping her eyes open for possible opportunities or maybe our driver is just looking for a place for their next journey to begin.

Resting on the Knight of Wands and The Empress – Look at the Big Picture. What is resonating with you currently? Where do you feel connected? Where do you see yourself in the not so distant future? Can you see the changes and growth in you? Feel your power and own it.

20170617_212513

The Tower – this Tower offers us two different takes. The one we are going through I would consider organized chaos. Sure the Tower is all about shaking things up and tearing things down but it doesn’t have to be all bad. In order to move forward sometimes, we have to break things. Last week int he Daily we had the Tower and it was all about breaking the mold. So this week think about what you want to change and shake up. Remember on your project changes may need to be made to take it to the next level. Go with the flow and see what you need to add or take away.

20170617_212432

 

Lastly, we have The Magician. Like I said you can do Magic. When we start stripping things down and getting down to the basic then we can truly create what we are seeking. If you are trying to stick to what others expect in your life then you aren’t living for you. So, with Peace in your heart and know your power and energy, embrace and create, the time is now.

Best Advice: Be Open, see the potential for the future and take a little time for self-care. Create and move forward looking for all the opportunities you seek. The end of the Week and the New Moon appear to be offering us organized chaos that opens the door for bringing magic into our lives.

I hope this week finds you well. On June 24, 2017, I will be in McHenry doing readings at 18193301_1533613563324562_7558044539642834260_o

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.

All the usually business stuff will be linked below included my upcoming events. Hope you have a great Week. Thanks for stopping in to read.

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.

Thank you all for entering the contest. All winners were notified. The next contest will be announced via my newsletter.

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.

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 14 – 20, 2017

20170512_105137

First, let me start out by saying Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mom’s out there pet Mom’s too!

Sometimes life gets in the way with what we plan. That’s what happened this week with the blog.  Normally the blog would’ve been up Yesterday but it has been a beautiful weekend and well the plants needed to be planted. (Most didn’t get planted as other projects took over.) Then last night we had a low key celebration for out 11th Wedding Anniversary. We ended up with takeout as most things close in town at 9:00pm, what can I say but small town life. So as I promised my Facebook followers I would get this done before gardening. Well, the post will be done but gardening will not as Allergy season is in full bloom.  Sorry for the rambling but well, I wanted to explain.

The Cosmic Tarot is the deck of Choice this week and this week it looks like there will be some progress made. Let’s take a deeper look.

20170512_105352

The Chariot is telling us we can make progress by staying focused and on task. Stick with your plan and don’t get distracted by minor obstacles. Those obstacles will only slow you down and make you realize that you need to refocus to proceed.

20170512_105421

The Seven of Cups tells us that we have to look up and not reach out blindly for what we want and for that matter even what we need. Yes, this cards can be about Dreams and Desires but this week it feels a little different. This week I have a feeling that it’s telling us to focus on one thing and don’t rush into things blindly. Listen to your gut and intuition as you make choices. If you just aren’t feeling something isn’t right at your core then maybe you should take a pass on it. This week truly look at what you’re reaching for and make sure it’s what you really want.

20170512_105447

The World is being offered up this week ready for the taking. I recommend thinking about what you really want. Sometimes the thing we think we truly desire is not what we need at all. So, as you take the World by storm make sure you’re prepared for any and all possible outcomes.  Life isn’t perfect but joy can be found in even the strangest places.

20170512_105514

The Fool is telling us to step out of our comfort zone this week. Sure it would be much easier to say there but then you would miss the new adventure that is waiting for you. Certainly, there are much easier ways to get to the new path you are seeking but where is your sense of adventure. Remember there are no memories without the risk. Now I’m not suggesting being reckless this is more about being the calculated risk taker, So plot your course and strap in for the ride. Make sure you take notes along the way as there will definitely be things you want to keep a record of for later times.

Resting on the Chariot and the Seven of Cups you have the potential to move forward to follow your dreams just make sure you look at the bigger picture and not just say well I can do this because I say I can. Remember to look for anything that might need to be considered before starting on this path.

20170512_105534

The Ace of Wands tells us of fast changes. So, hold on to your hat. While they might start out slow and small big life transforming ones are on their way. So be prepared make sure everything is in place as you’re not going to want to double back to fix something as you move forward.

Resting on the Seven of Cups and the World, know that as you step into your power you can have the dreams you want and create the World you need. Just be clear and prepared for what you think you desire. Remember there is balance in the world and even when we think everything is perfect there is always a little dark to it. Don’t get sucked into the dark.

20170512_105552

The Princess of Cups reminds me of a musician friend who would never share in advance with anyone his plans of who he was going to work with next for fear of jinxing them. With that in mind keep your plans close to the vest. This is a message that has come up a few times in the last weeks. I’m not saying being covert, however, I’m suggesting that right now you don’t need anyone telling you that you’re foolish or crazy for what you’re trying to pursue. Tell only those you trust and the rest well it isn’t any of their business.

Resting on the Fool and the Ace of Wands. Once again the theme of New Beginnings but more than that your path feels super charged. Stay focused and proceed.

Best Advice this week. Be Prepared. There are changes afoot and you need to know all your options. You have the potential to have the world you want it is your choice but preparation is key. Look at the big picture and know all that you need to make things happen.
