Weekly for July 17, – 23, 2017

20170717_164405

So, we are ending the week with a New Moon but that will be tackled in a separate reading. This week we are looking at some challenges but keep in mind this is all about shaking things up and dealing with some old habits and patterns. So let’s dig in.

Seven of Cups

Seven of Cups– gets us started. All those ideas swimming in your head. Good, bad or just indifferent what are they offering you. Thinking and feeling that you’re at the mercy but are you? Think about it if he would only lift his head he could see a clearer idea of the path he would need to take. Instead, he feels the need to just reach out but something tells me he isn’t acting on intuition but more on fear.  So this week I would say as those ideas swim in your head, find a way to look at them realistically. Find the ones that resonate the most and write down the rest for later. Find the focus to move past the reactionary fear and focus on creating what you need too.

the hermit

The Hermit – a fitting card after the Seven of Cups. Take the time to look at the one or two ideas that you chose. When you close your ideas can you see them clearly? Can you see the outcome? Can you see what you need to do to get there? By going with in the answers can come with a quiet mind. When we are still our intuition can hone into the info that we need. So take a little time and listen to the call of your answers. Listen to the full vision of what you are seeking.

King of Wands

The King of Wands – Great compassion, thought and love this is what he can offer us. But this has to come from within not from another person. Sure you may have a partner to help you in this venture but this has to be your passion project. This is something that you are willing to pour everything into it. Are you ready for that? You also might have that other person that is willing to do that with you in this creation so. Whether it is you this week or someone else know this is a creative project born from love and great thought. This isn’t playtime, things are about to get real.

Seven of Wands

Seven of Wands – Excuse my language but Get the Fuck out of your Head! ( Sometimes shock value helps.) When we are ready to make changes we can start second guessing ourselves or start thinking of all the reason we might fail. Did we make the wrong choice? Should we have done something different? Maybe you don’t think you’re good enough. The truth is most of what is going on up in your head isn’t real and you’re just over thinking. Let it go, NOW! Sure we’re not perfect but you rolled the dice and now have to live with it. Let it ride and see where you land when all is said and done. Like I said Get out of your Head!

Resting on the Seven of Cups and the Hermit – These two are only supporting the illusions that you are concocting. Sure I said think about things but that wasn’t an invite to come in a bash your ideas. Shut down the negative chatter and focus on the possibilities. If you don’t try you will never know and always left to wonder.

Nine of Swords

Wow, the Mind must be on Steroids this week. Nine of Swords feels like the Chicken Little card. You might be feeling helpless to a situation that truly isn’t real. You appear to be replaying a tape that is telling you you’regoing to fall flat on your face. But the sky isn’t falling. Sure you’ve made some choices in the past and things might not have worked out but that doesn’t mean that everything is destined to fail. No if anything you should take the lessons and be happy that you learned from them. You did learn from them right? 😉

Resting on the Hermit and the King of Wands – This is the time to trust and realize that your passion could save your life. Sure there is a lot of head games from the past in play but know with compassion and love you can get out of your own way. You just have to learn how to be gentel with yourself. Sure dig in and see where these thoughts are coming from but see them for what they are and realize that you’ve got this. You just have to get past your fear driven thoughts and be more compassionate with yourself.

Justice

Finally, Justice is telling us to find a balance in our thoughts and our actions. We can see the outcome as long as we are balanced and focused. We can see that the world isn’t so scary as long as we step away from the fear. It’s important to release those negative thoughts and try and thrive in the unknown. Sure we have a vision but nothing is gauranteed and that is okay. We have to see that life changes all the time and each day is a gift that we need to see and experience. We need to find or passion and create what we need to make our world and if we’re lucky enough the world better for others.

I hope this week finds you confronting the demons of your fears. Remember we are responsible for ourselves and no one elses reactions. Sue if you have kids you are responsible for them. However, Live your life to your most ginuine level possible. (Of course there are certain things that are not proper and not legal and I am not condoning those things.) That being said be true to yourself.

Best Course of Action – Open your eyes and look at the reality and move past your fear and find balance in everything.

 

I hope you have a fantastic week even though there appears to be some ups and downs.

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.

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.

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.
