Hi Everyone!

Welcome to this week’s Monday Check In from Sue Ellis-Saller.

Last week was a doozy, energetically and astrologically speaking. We had a lunar eclipse and also a Full Moon in Pisces. There were some definite endings associated with the eclipse – and new beginnings that will fill the voids that the endings left. As Pisces is a water sign, signifying emotion, love, feelings, artistic expression, and intuition, you might expect the changes in your life to occur in these areas. Be open to exploring new projects and letting your creativity flow. Open your heart – even if you’ve been hurt before – and let love back in.

It was also the Harvest Moon, so you might be feeling an urge to look over what you’ve sown and reaped in your own life. Are you laying seeds that lead to the crops that you’d like to have? Are you tending to and nurturing your projects, ensuring their survival and success? Are you expressing gratitude for the blessings of abundance you’ve received?

You know, it’s easy to overlook how far you’ve come, especially if you are working on big-time, long-term projects, like me. This week, I really had to stop for a second and take a look at how far I’ve come – not just in the past year, but in LIFE.

I was this totally shy, bullied kid who didn’t have an ounce of self-esteem. I came from a broken, low-income family. Now, here I am – in Austria, of all places! Traveling, seeing the world… I’m a professional TAROT READER and LIFE COACH – for Heaven’s sake! I’ve got a freaking cool job!! I have 3 beautiful children, a secure and bigger than I ever expected home. I have a husband who loves me and tries to spoil me. I’ve got a yard and a garden! Seriously. I can pay my bills. I have so much to be grateful for, and I need to think about these things when I am feeling down and out, looking at how much I still have to do or what I haven’t yet accomplished.

Are you overlooking how far you’ve come when you think about your life? Take a moment and look around at what you HAVE. Be grateful for all of the good things – and the Universe will bring you more to be thankful for!

Countdown to TarotCon 2016 Tarot Video Prompts

If you haven’t seen the posts, I’m working on making a series of videos about tarot based on Ethony Dawn’s 31 Days of Tarot Video Prompts. You can find the videos on my site and also on my YouTube Channel.

These videos are a lead up/countdown to TarotCon 2016. I’m really excited about going – it’s in Florida and features some of the biggest names in tarot right now!

What do you want to see more of?

I’d love to hear what you’d like to see more of in my writing/posts on my blog and social media sites. I’m here to help and I have a variety of tools to work with – from pragmatic life planning coaching tools to energy work and Reiki to helping with tarot and introspection. I like to help people learn to help themselves, as well, and am open to exploring different topics that you all feel will make your lives easier!

This week’s Tarot card

You might have been feeling like you weren’t able to move forward lately – or even to connect with your own center in order to gain insight and advice from your internal wisdom. Thankfully enough, this phase should be ending soon, and you’ll be able to finally make some headway in the projects that you’ve been feeling blocked about.

This card might indicate that you have been doubting yourself and your abilities lately, that you haven’t had faith in what you can do, and so you’ve been holding yourself back. Don’t let your lack of faith keep you from making progress. It’s time to trust yourself and get going!

I hope you have a wonderful week!
