Full Moon in Virgo Reading

Full Moon in Virgo Reading

Howdy-do, Folks! So, I am finally feeling awake enough to start blogging more frequently. Thank Gods-n-Goddesses, because someone who is used to having so much energy doesn’t funk long-term well. But, I am back at it now! I’m using Ethony Dawn’s spread for my New Moon in Virgo reading. If you don’t follow her… well, you should because she’s spectacular! This is her image, by the way. I’m doing the reading for myself. And I have to admit, I am shoulder deep in some turbulent times right now. My home life is a little messy and I am trying to sort things out. So, this Full Moon and the transformational energy it holds are something that I need! I’m using the Mary El tarot for this reading. If you don’t have it, but you love a deck that is deep and a little bit “off” from the traditional Rider-Waite look and feel, I definitely recommend it. It’s one of my all-time faves for personal work. Here’s my spread: 1. What baggage am I being challenged to leave behind? The Lovers. Ouch. Touche tarot. Yes. There is some baggage – major baggage related to my love life that I need to leave behind right now. Let’s say that I am working on changing the energy around that – within myself and within my relationship. I get it. 2. How can I relieve my more critical energies this Full Moon? 4 of Swords. Totally hit the nail on the head. This gal needs some R&R big time. I need to make more time to relax and chill out. That will help everything enormously. 3....
Today’s Card Choice for You – Your Message for Today

Today’s Card Choice for You – Your Message for Today

Today’s Card Choice for You comes from Tori Hartman’s Chakra Wisdom Oracle Deck. Here are the cards! You can pick the left card, the middle card, or the right card for your message! Here is the reveal: Left: Impasse – Sometimes your angels will stop you from moving forward on a particular path not because they don’t want to see you succeed at that goal, but because they are trying to save you from harm or heartache that goes along with that particular way of going or doing things. Be flexible. Don’t give up on the goal – find a different way of doing things! Middle: Perception – If you are feeling bored or unfulfilled in life or you think that things are dull and draining, work to change your perspective. It is sometimes the way we look at things that makes all of the difference in the world. “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Dr. Wayne Dyer  Right: Facade – (I love this card) – There are times when interacting with others is painful or comes from a sense of obligation instead of a place of desire and joy. You might be wearing a very uncomfortable mask and it is time to throw it off and just be yourself. The people who love you KNOW and LOVE the true you, those who don’t stick around weren’t meant to be there, anyway. It’s time to heal yourself and to be yourself. Namaste – and bis Morgen!...
Want a FREE Tarot Reading?

Want a FREE Tarot Reading?

    Ahhh… The call of the free tarot reading. When someone advertises “freebies,” they generally get a line going around the block. I used to LOVE having reading parties! The energy was fantastic and I had a lot of fun… But free readings can be draining for a reader. They take time, energy, and resources. And then figuring out that I was reading for 30 or 40 or a hundred people who had no intention of actually buying a reading got frustrating. I’d see the same names over and over again on my free reading threads, but never once would many of those same people pay for a reading – even when I would run a “Pay What You Can” offer. That made me feel so unvalued and just plain old used, to tell you the truth. So, after more than a year of running an online tarot, oracle, and angel card reading business, and after having given away literally hundreds of free readings, I have decided to make some rules for my “free readings.” You’ll want to pay attention to these for future reference! 1) Each person can only have ONE free reading per year – unless they win a contest or send 3 referrals to me. Free readings are meant to be a sample of my work so that a person can see if they appreciate my style – they are not meant to be our only means of interacting with one another! I do notice the same people requesting free readings over and over again – so obviously they like what I have to say, but they just might not value my...

Four Aces Spread

Four Aces Spread

One of the tarot groups I belong to recently featured a spread that I tried out for myself called the Four Aces Spread. This is a traditional cartomancy spread that uses the four aces in the deck as the signifiers, and then adds clarity through cards being placed to the left and right of each ace. The aces represent the following areas of life: Pentacles: relate to material things like finances, home and possessions. Wands: indicate ambition, career, work, life passions Cups: relate to romantic love, relationships, emotions Swords: signify thoughts, plans, struggles, and intellect The cards to the left of the signifier (in the left column) give the basis/influences for the issue or the struggle one is facing when dealing with each of these areas, while the card on the right indicates the outcome. My spread is on the mark, given what I have been dealing with in the past couple of weeks or so. It hasn’t been the greatest time in my life, but one that I am finding is helping me to grow and leading me to a more authentic path and a better understanding of my place in the world. To share my outcome with you… The first Ace to come up for me was Ace of Pentacles, indicating house, home, possessions, material things. Death (Transition) came up for the influence in this reading, and then the Two of Swords (indecision, hesitance to make a decision, defensiveness) came up as the outcome. Right now, I am in the midst of a huge change in circumstance and really in a place where I am unable to...

Forward Motion Check Spread

I have been so excited about working with people in a more growth oriented fashion, that my creativity and imagination have been going wild! I sat down and created a new spread – and I am sure there are more to come as I work with people and design spreads that can really fit their needs. This spread, called the Forward Motion Spread, looks a lot like the Celtic Cross, but is a little different in terms of queries covered. Here are the card definitions: Where you are Where you would like to be How to get there Influences holding you back/basis of the situation Qualities assisting you Your attitude Outside influences Hopes, dreams, fears Outcome I may actually end up adding a couple of cards to this one for the “How to Get There” part of the process – and perhaps a couple of cards with more information about how to get there. Here’s how a spread in action looks… This was another spread that had me giggling because of how on point and concise it was to my overall feelings and situation. 1) Two of Swords – Tension caused by an urge to blind oneself to issues having to do with people. The woman is blindfolded, but heavily armed and ready to strike out at friend or foe. Closing off of the heart chakra. Choppy waters in the background indicate the troubled emotions that have led the person to this place. 2) Strength – Taming of the Lion, so to speak. Getting emotions under control in order to be able to better balance giving and receiving in...
