  • Choose A Pair – Tarot and Oracle Pick For The Week of April 27, 2020

    Hello, my Dear!

    I hope you and yours are content and healthy!

    The flowers in nature and in my garden are starting to bloom and it’s really helping my mood. My friend Helena was talking about lazy gardening—that sounds like a plan to me! It’s basically finding out what edible weeds and plants grow native in your area and setting them up in your garden so they grow without too much watering and fuss. That perfect for my level of time and attention!

    Focusing on nature has really helped me get through the quarantine. I’m lucky enough to have a yard and even a river and forest near me. Plus, we live in the BOONIES, so we can take long walks and maintain social distancing cause there just isn’t anyone else around!

    I bought a few flower and herb based decks so that I can kind of use them as flashcards. I thought it would be fun to use them for my pick-a-card reading this week.

    I used the Herbal Tarot by Michael Tierra and Candis Cantin and the Botanical Inspirations Oracle Deck by Lynn Araujo. The decks are both published by US Games, Inc.

    Go ahead! Pick a pile!

    Which duo did you choose?

    Here’s the reveal:



    Left:

    The Magician + Sweet William

    You can achieve anything your heart desires with a positive attitude and a smile. When you combine the potential of the Magician with the simple message, Just Smile, from the Sweet William, you know that your smile and attitude are the keys to your success!

    Center:

    The Four of Swords Reversed + Forget-Me-Nots

    I’ve been seeing a lot of Forget-Me-Nots on my walks lately.

    Make the effort to be remembered/memorable. If you sit and rest for too long, you might miss your opportunity. And why not take a trip down memory lane by going through your photos this week? The get up and go of the Four of Swords reversed added to the nostalgia of the Forget-Me-Nots is sure to send you on a trip down Memory Lane.

    Right:

    The Medicine Wheel (Wheel of Fortune) + Crocus

    It’s time to move forward in your life to places and spaces that bring you more happiness. The Medicine Wheel shows that you need to help Fate move you forward—and it’s time—and Crocus, one of the earliest blooming flowers of the year, shows that the sun is coming again and joy can be a bigger part of your life.

    Did your message resonate? I’d love to hear if the messages the plants brought forth today struck a chord with you.

    I wish you all the best!
    Sue

  • This Week’s Choose A Card Tarot Reading

    Ready to see what’s in store for you for the week of October 22, 2018?

    Choose a tarot card – 1, 2, or 3, and then watch the video to see what your tarot message for the week is.

     

    Card 1 is the King of Swords. This can relate to a mature man who is intellectually and analytically driven. He might not be all about the heart, but he is someone you can rely on for good advice, especially if you need legal or medical advice. The King of Swords can also represent a situation in which you need to own your expertise and come to the table prepared, or look at things from the highest analytical perspective.

    Card 2 is the Nine of Pentacles reversed. It looks like you might have given up your independence or “grounding” in the world. The term, sold out, came to mind when I was reading the cards. Things might not be so great this week in terms of feeling financially secure and able to spend money on the little luxuries in life. Hunker down and save for a rainy day.

    Card 3 is Justice. This is a great omen if you have some sort of legal battle ahead of you this week. It also encourages you to look at things from a fair perspective, taking everyone’s needs into consideration and keeping balance in mind as a key theme.

    I hope that this reading fits for you and helps you get through the week! Join us again next week for our weekly tarot card pick!

    *I used the Morgan Greer tarot deck for this week’s draw.

  • Connection to Source/My Business Diva Tarot Spread

    Use this spread to connect with the Universe for messages on how to move forward

    I love trying out new tarot spreads. Every new spread I work with gives me a way of connecting ideas and advice from the tarot cards that I might not yet have discovered on my own.

    The spread I am doing today came from Joy Bott and was posted in the Tarot Travellors Facebook group.

    Personally, I’ve been wanting to connect with my Business Diva lately. My Business Diva would be the spirit or personification of my business – or how the Universe would advise me about my business.

    I loved how this spread came to life for me! I used the Rider-Waite tarot deck; it’s my workhorse right now, so it is sitting right in front of me most times.

    Here’s the original reading image from the Tarot Travellors group:

    Here is my spread and how I would interpret the cards.

     

    1) Me or the potential I can reach should I apply myself. That last part is important – the King of Pentacles. I have everything with me that I need in order to be successful.

    2) My Business Diva or the Spirit of my business. Judgment reversed. Loss of momentum and lack of follow through. Need to take steps toward finishing things. Could be moving on to the next level, but stuck in (my own self-doubts).

    3) My relationship with my Business Diva. Page of Wands. Of course – the well-spring of creative ideas and motivation. I must embrace this in order to move forward or to right the Judgment card so that I can move through the journey toward success.

    4) What do I want from my Business Diva? The World reversed. That it ISN’T done or completed. That there is still a chance that we can work together.

    5) What does my Business Diva want from me? The Hanged Man. To stop and connect with my own divine guidance and support. That I look inward for answers instead of always looking around. Contemplation instead of moving in the wrong direction.

    6) What blocks my connection to my Business Diva? The Three of Wands. When I only look to the future, I am not connecting with where I am now. While planning and goal setting can be good, it can also keep me from working in the now.

    7) What removes this blockage? Ace of Cups. Falling back in love with what I do. Focusing on the root of doing what I love. Creativity and new enthusiasm toward my work.

    8) Advice? The Empress reversed. Honestly, I see this as getting off of my butt and finally letting this baby grow outside my mind. I have to also quit being so gentle with myself and start doing the work.

    9) Optional additional clarification. The King of Cups, or moving in a direction that allows me to care for other people or uses my love of working with and helping others as the basis for my work.

    So, what do you think?

    Do you see the same thing(s) in my reading? How about trying this spread for yourself? Feel free to share your outcome or questions about the reading in the comments below!

  • It’s Never Just Yes or No in Tarot…

    It isn't as simple as
     Going Beyond Yes Or No To Get To The REAL Answers You Want In A Reading

    As a professional reader, I get a lot of callers who are curious to find out if their exes will be calling or coming back. Most of the time, these people are calling on my instant reading line, where time is of the essence.

    Even though many just want a simple “YES” or “NO” from me, I always, always, always advise that a person digs a bit deeper into the question, because sometimes a simple YES or NO isn’t as simple as that.

    Consider this scenario: You’ve just broken up with your boyfriend because you caught him hiding provocative text exchanges with a co-worker. You want to know if he’s going to call you.

    I get a positive card – The Magician – and you are happy that he’s going to call you. “When?” you ask. I get the Eight of Wands, implying very soon (or in 8 weeks, depending on how you read timing in your cards). You are all kinds of happy because he’s going to call… but, when he calls, it’s just to arrange the details of getting his name off of your lease.

    If that’s the case, you’d likely be thrown WAY off. That’s why I advise people to take a more in-depth look at the question.

    If, for example, I’d gotten the positive response about him contacting you, coupled with the Eight of Wands – then we see what you need to know about him contacting you, and I get the Ace of Pentacles, reversed, we know it isn’t to profess his undying love for you but to move on. The Two of Cups, when reversed, just emphasizes the fact that this isn’t going to lead to a rekindling of your romance.

     

    MorethanYesNo1
    Cards from the Tarot Illuminati deck

     

    Even though it might take a minute or two longer for me to get to the bottom of the question, you will be given information that will allow you to properly prepare for the call…

    And really, if you explained to me that he was hiding provocative texts (leading me to the impression that he isn’t the most honest character), the Life Coach in me would wonder if you truly want this guy back in your life – and I’d ask you about that, too.

     

    The same with the question: Will I see my ex soon?

    I could tell you yes, you will see him soon. The cards might even show an encounter in the near future. But, will you be rekindling your romance or meeting his new girlfriend?

    A few more cards and a little more time might make the difference between you getting your hopes up because you’ll see him – as in him inviting you out for a date or trying to rekindle the spark, or the encounter causing you some heartache.

    In order to best answer your questions, I’ll try to direct you to the right questions to ask. I’ll want you to look inside yourself and try to connect with what is best for you. Do you need to work on letting him go so that you can move on to a new, better relationship?

    Simple YES or NO questions aren’t the best for tarot, anyway. Here’s a way to expand on a simple YES or NO reading, to get more information about what is going on.

    1) Will he call-

    As your advisor, I’ll try to get more answers from you a lot of times, as some cards require a bit of information to properly interpret.

    I’ll ask questions related to the cards that come up, like: Is the Queen of Wands (a self-confident, self-assured, fire starter kind of person) you or is it the ex? Do you need to embody more of that energy to move your relationship to the next level? Is HE the Prince of Cups (all looking, but not much action – puppy romance or a crush from afar, reversed is a porn addiction), or is that someone who is coming into your life or the mood of the relationship?

    You see, as a reader, I look to you for clues and cues about what the cards mean for your specific case in the reading. Of course, I can straight up read a spread, but your input will make it much more personalized and fitting for your situation.

    I see using the cards as a way of exploring what is and the possibilities of what might be coming, not like a crystal ball to foretell a future that’s carved in stone.

    I’ll ask questions. I’ll direct you to more questions. I’ll try to prepare you for what’s coming up – and that isn’t usually as simple as a yes or no.

    And that’s why I recommend scheduling a longer reading. Honestly, I can do the “quicky one, two here’s your answer” kind of reading – BUT it might not cover the entirety of your situation or give you the kind of details you need.

    A longer reading – at least 20 minutes – allows you to have the time to explain your situation to me. It allows me to explore your feelings and your own intuition about the situation (something the life coach in me loves to do).

  • Essential Oils and Tarot Readings – The Basic Scents

    2

    Combining essential oils and tarot readings can help to deepen your connection, enhance your intuition, and keep your reading space energetically clean and positive. In this article, I’ll talk about the basics of using essential oils or incense to enhance your tarot reading or other intuitive practice.

    Working with scent

    Personally, I prefer using essential oils to burning incense, as I don’t want to “smoke out” the whole house (really, it is about what my family will tolerate). As smoke can represent the element of wind (intellect, speech), you might prefer to actually burn incense or find an oil-based room spray. Experiment with different variations and methods to find out what best works for you.

    Honestly speaking, most of the time I just put a vial of oil to my nose and inhale a few times, allowing the scent that I am using to really work its way through my nasal cavity and into my pineal area. Closing my eyes and turning my attention to the scent(s) I am using signals the start of my session. I have even started getting images right when I start inhaling perfumes – they are that good!

    You can also apply the oils to different areas of your body. For example, if you would like to strengthen your connection with Spirit through your Crown Chakra, you could rub a few drops of lavender oil on your crown prior to your reading. Or, if you wanted to concentrate on opening your Third Eye Chakra to be able to accurately see during a reading, then you might try rubbing a drop of Frankincense on your third eye area. People who have a hard time communicating their intuitions to clients might do well to rub lavender on their throats prior to a reading session.

    If you would prefer to release the scents into the room without burning anything, you can buy a good diffuser that uses air to “blow” the scents into the air. There are several different types on the market, and they range in cost and area covered.

    Make sure that you are getting good, quality oils or incense that are made with care to the Earth and environment – not to mention to the integrity of the oils themselves! Cheaper oils can be made from tinctures or synthetics (YUCK), thus making them far less powerful and more poisonous to the environment. Other cheap oil brands use bark when resin is called for (so the skin instead of the sap) – or they simply grind all of the pieces together to make a conglomerate scent, instead of working with the plant in a truer manner. Another thing to take into consideration with quality is eco-friendliness of the company. Whenever possible, the plant and tree species used to make the essential oils should be cultivated in their native habitats. This ensures that the plants are healthy and hearty and are able to thrive in the environment in which they are grown.

    If you are interested in using the oils I’ve described here or even start your own part-time business sharing oils. Please email me at sue@sueellissaller.com if you would like to sign up or order, or go straight to my doTerra site.

    There are a few different scents that will help with every reading, and those that are geared more toward working with specific sorts of energies, like fairies, spirits, elves, and angels. I will suggest a few of each in the following section and tell you why they help!

    Clearing, Cleaning, and Connection:

    Sage in bloom
    Sage in bloom

     

    Sage:

    Sage is a sacred plant that has been used by various tribes and groups around the world for ages. It is the “go to” herb for smudging/clearing negativity out of spaces and objects. I recommend using SMOKE when possible so that you can really connect with the spirit world when working with this holy and sacred scent – but I have also heard that room sprays can be just as good for clearing space (personally, I wouldn’t spray my cards with anything, as they might get ruined by liquid).

    If you would like to clear your cards either because you have purchased them second-hand or for “maintenance,” fan your deck out on a table and “push” the sage smoke over the cards, holding the intention to clear the cards of any negativity or lower vibrations that might have become attached to them in their usage.

    Cedarwood:

    Cedarwood has clarifying properties when applied topically, and can also help to remove negativity or negative residue from a person’s aura. I love using this oil to clear my energy after doing readings.

    General Scents:

    These scents are those that I would use regardless of what sort of reading I was working with.

    Aside from being a plant known to help keep spaces cleaned, it is also strongly associated with connecting to the Spirit Realm.

    Sandalwood:

    Sandalwood is renowned for helping people to enter meditative states. It can help to relax and focus a person – helping them to settle their thoughts, concentrate and turn inward. It is also astringent and antiseptic oil, so it can really “clear the air” and help you to create a sacred space. This essential oil/scent is high in something called “sesquiterpenes” – these are compounds contained in the scent that are said to stimulate the pineal gland.

    Frankincense:

    Frankincense is well noted as being an oil that healers and prophets have used for ages. Like sandalwood, this scent has antiseptic and antibacterial qualities and can aid in creating a sacred space. This oil also has a very high vibrational frequency, and so it can serve as a protective agent in your readings – keeping lower level spirits out of your space and reading. Using frankincense can also help a person increase his or her perceptive abilities.

     

    20140802_133248

     

    Lavender:

    Lavender is another all around great oil/scent to help with meditation and connection with the source so that your readings will be more accurate. Known for its calming properties, lavender can help a person to better relax and be more open to receiving messages from Spirit. This “purple” smell relates to the Crown Chakra, and is said to help people to see and hear spirits.

     

    Attracting Guides and Good Spirits:

    If you are interested in working more closely with your guides and good spirits that are in your space when reading tarot, then try some of these oils

    Rose:

    Rose essential oil has one of the highest vibratory frequencies. Many recommend using rose scent to attract angels and spirit guides associated with joy and love into a session. You can use this scent to increase your psychic awareness as well.

    Wisteria:

    Wisteria is another great oil to use when connecting to the spirit realm. It can help to attract specific guides and aid in the development of energetic healing skills.

     

    Protecting Your Energy from Negativity:

    We all want to make sure that the entities that help us out in our readings are high vibrating souls, spirits, and angels, and that they have the greatest good of ourselves and our clients in mind when working with us. In order to protect your energy, space, and the space and energy of the person you are reading for, you might want to use these scents…

    Carnation:

    Carnation has been used in the past to protect people from wayward and negative energies and entities. According to Llewellyn’s article, carnation “was worn during Elizabethan times to prevent encounters with ghosts.”

    Super duper helpers:


    rosemary2

    Rosemary:

    Rosemary is another scent/oil that is very antiseptic and antiviral, and can help not only to clear and clean your space – creating a sacred area to work within – but it is also considered to be highly protective. It is associated with elves and can be used to work with them. Aside from these uses, Rosemary is said to help people to focus and relax at the same time, and that can help to increase psychic awareness and a peaceful, calm feeling for the reader. **DO NOT use Rosemary if you have a seizure disorder, as this scent has been known to bring on seizures in those who are prone to them.

     

    Gardenia:

    Like Rosemary, Gardenia has a wide variety of uses related to working with Spirit. It is said to attract good, high vibrating entities and to increase a person’s telepathic abilities.

     

    Lilac:

    This wonderfully versatile fragrance is known to enhance psychic visions and fine-tune clairvoyant capabilities. People have used it to clear hauntings from houses and connect with fairies. It is also a great scent for attracting good, high vibrating entities and spirits into readings.

    As you can see, there are a wide variety of different essential oils that you can use to help with your tarot reading, angel card readings – and even mediumship sessions or just for general spiritual cleansing and connection. Experiment with different oils and decks and find out what works best for you!

    If you have any additional oils or rituals to add, please feel free to share your experience and the combinations you use!

    With respect and light,
    Sue Ellis-Saller
