Weekly Focus: Oct 31-Nov 6

Happy Halloween and Samhain! I hope everyone is having a great holiday today, it’s been feeling very minimal over here for me today. I’m just having a hard time finding the spirit this year (no pun intended), Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday too! I’m sure I will feel it more as the day goes on!

Theme (soul) // 8 of Knives

Shutting out the world, closing yourself off, and possibly some shadow work to kick off this new month. The theme this week tells us that we may feel a bit distant and that it is ok! If October was a rough one for you, this may be key medicine telling you that you should spend some time closed off a bit. This could also mean that there will be some distance felt this week, more on the stubborn side of things. We may not wish to see things as they are and want to remain in a safe position where we feel secure and comfortable. However, If you are curious then go ahead and take the blind fold off to take a peek around. You may surprise yourself in what you find hidden in front of you!

Focus (mind) // Death

What do you want to end? What would you like to see take over in this new space? This is the focus for the week, making room for new beginnings and it is so fitting as the New Moon just passed us over the weekend. Celebrate those who have passed this week, not just today for the 31st. Celebrate life and death in their natural and raw forms. Connect with the aspects of death and what it means to you.

Action (body) // 9 of Pentacles

Be creative in your pursuits and use what you have. You may not realize this, but you have everything you need this week with you now. There is no need to give your wallet a run for it’s money, give it a rest and enjoy what you are surrounded in. Be resourceful and be grateful for what you have in your life at this point. Referring back to the Death card, this is a great card of giving gratitude to those who were before you.

Weekly Focus: Oct 24-30

Wow, I’m late this week! It’s been a long 4-day weekend over in my house (well, for my husband lol) so we have been busy with house stuff and in the garden. I decided to just enjoy the time and relax, so I didn’t do much tarot card throwing at all. I meant to post the weekly focus yesterday, like normal, but I got heavily distracted and decided to just wait till today so I could focus more. Let’s jump in, we still have nearly all of this week left!

weekly-focus-outline-1

This morning I was drawn to using the Spirit Speak Tarot and the Iris Oracle, these decks work so beautifully together, one of my favorite pairing.

Theme (Soul) // Death of the Deceitful

Our theme this week is all about cutting cords and letting shit go! We are talking about digging deep into our closets and getting rid of the shadows we no longer wish to deal with, yet we drag along through life anyways. It’s all about clearing things out, both mentally and physically. Whether this relates to people in your life that are hindering and holding you back – negative thought patterns we have nagging at us daily – and emotionally ties to things and objects that are no longer in the picture. It’s time to just clean house whether people think your being harsh or not, remember that this is your life story and your the writer!

Focus (Mind) // Judgement

Wow, this card really resonates well with our theme this week! This card to me amplifies that it really is time to clear out what is not serving us anymore, more so than your regular releasing. Our focus for this clean out should be to feel refreshed, awaken, and new! We want that “just had the best morning coffee, ever!” feeling after we cut these cords that are holding us back. Have you had this kind of coffee before?! If you have, you know the feeling I’m talking about! It’s good… real good! Let this card be your motivation this week, what we can strive to be by the weekend… though, all this mental and emotional work may have us feeling like a zombie by the end of the week… I always see zombies when I look at this card, lol! So, if your feeling more like a zombie rather than fresh and new… you deserve some good rest and pat on your back!

Action (Body) // The Lovers

What ever you do this week, try not to do this alone or at least put a lot of love into what you are doing and feeling. Greet everything with compassion rather than fear, especially if you are cutting cords and clearing out the shadows. When we greet things with fear and anger, it really doesn’t help at all. It makes things worse, leaves us in a blah mood, and only feeds the fear even more. Some of the work you do this week could be better done with your partner, best friend, or close relative. If you are feeling like you need to pair up, do it! Call someone you know you can trust and that will help you in this process… not judge you or hold you back.

Weekly Focus: Oct 17-23

I hope everyone had a great Full Moon, it was gorgeous! This week I’m using a new deck that arrived on Friday, it’s the Wanderer’s Tarot. I received this deck from the deck creator, Casey Zabala, and I adore it! I’ll be doing a deck interview reading this week with it but so far it’s been reading beautifully, I’m glad to have this deck in my collection.

weekly-focus-outline

Theme (Soul) // The Hanged Man

Kicking off this week with some Major’s showing up! I really feel the theme this week is all about a different approach to what we normally do. If something isn’t working, look at it from a different angle or simply take a break for a bit so you can refocus. This is something I do often when nothing seems to work how I want it to, I step away and come back to it with different ideas. We may need to do this if we plan on getting some work completed this week!

Focus (Mind) // Judgement

Rejuvenated is the word that keeps coming to mind. Our focus this week is all about opening our eyes with a fresh perspective, this echoes The Hanged Man big time. New perspective will offer a fresh outlook and point of view, it will change us for the good. We are feeling alive this week and reborn. Focus on seeing things in new light and starting over, not necessarily like a clean slate but more of just going in a different direction that leaves you feeling fresh and rejuvenated. Judgement to me is all about coming to realization and rising up from situations that were holding us down.

Action (Body) // 10 of Stones

Stacking things up and adding to your load, in a good way! We are tackling lists this week and moving on up the ladder. This card is normally seen as the 10 of Pentacles in a standard deck and is a card of wealth and stability. My attention is brought to the stacked stones, they look stable and secure. This is our source of action this week, getting things done so we can feel more secure through the week. If that means taking on a few extra tasks, go for it! Whatever you can do to end the week on top is key here.

Weekly Focus: October 10-16

Weekly Focus: October 10-16

I really liked last week’s reading spread so I’m using it again this week with a slight twist. I wanted to give more focus to two aspects in our week and make it more of a “mind, body, soul” type of reading for the week ahead. This weeks reading felt really good and I think I will be using this spread more often! I hope you guys find it useful this week!

weekly-focus-outline

This week I pulled out the Spirit Speak Tarot and the Iris Oracle, both created by Mary Elizabeth Evans. These decks work so well together, I just adore how the Iris Oracle card stands out in the reading against the black on white tarot cards. Perfect combo I think!

Theme (Soul) // Fire Mother

This card surrounds the Phoenix and it’s rebirth and death transition. Our attention should be drawn towards putting our focus and love into what means the most to us right now. It deserves our attention and may not be there tomorrow. Things change quickly and sometimes we aren’t prepared for it. This card reminds me of impermanence… we attach ourselves so tightly to objects, people, and situations that when they end or leave we are left feeling a void. This void can bring about emotional strains, heartache, and emptiness. We need to remember that nothing is permanent, even our bodies and mind. What is here today may not be here tomorrow, and preparing ahead for this can be a form of medicine for our soul.

Focus (Mind) // 2 of Swords

Can we get a more perfect card! Talk about major focus, we need to make some decisions this week whether we like it or not. These are not light hearted decisions either like what should you have for lunch, these are aimed towards bigger things that require deep thinking and focus, so don’t just agree to something without thoroughly thinking things through and weighing the odds. I really feel that some of the decisions you make this week will make a play in the weeks to come.

Being that we are creeping up on a Full Moon in Aries on the 15th, this is a great week to hone in on what we really desire to manifest and put into action. If you set intentions on the New Moon, some intentions may not feel like they are working or fizzling out rather than amping up… let them go. Focus on what is working and put your attention towards that!

Action (Body) // 8 of Pentacles

Another fitting card! The 8 of Pentacles tells us that we need to put a lot of effort into the quality of work we do. This could be aimed towards your daily life, your work, projects, and other hands on effort. Ask yourself if what you are doing right now is your best work or can it be improved? Don’t fall into the trap of finishing something up quick just for the sake of getting it done, take pride in what you are creating and let show. Others will take notice when you put in the extra effort, this could play well in your favor if you are wanting to draw attention in, especially when it comes down to your business or presentations.

Week Focus: October 3-9

Week Focus: October 3-9

I’m changing things up this week! The weekly reading has been on my mind a lot lately and I have been thinking about what I really want to get out of this reading for both my readers and myself. So, I’m bringing focus to the theme for the week and what aspects surrounding it are most important. This week I’m using the Sacred Symbols Oracle and the Spirit Speak Tarot, two of my favorites! I hope you enjoy the reading this week!

img_20161002_103105

Our theme this week is “Transmute” from the Sacred Symbols Oracle. This is all about transitioning, change of thoughts, and shedding of skin. This card to me feels very connected to the Death card in tarot, it surrounds the focus of release and letting things go. As we progress this week, keep this card in mind and ask yourself “What do I want to change? What do I want to release?”Take time to reevaluate how we spend our energy and time – if something is no longer working, release it and cut it free.

Our first focus this week comes from the 4 of Wands! With the theme of transmutation in mind we can use this to our benefit with how we engage in our friendships and close knit circles. If some of our social groups are no longer bringing you joy it may be time to move on. Letting people in and out of our life is a natural cycle – some are only in our lives for a short period while others are here for what feels like a lifetime. Dragging around burned out relationships or social groups and gatherings can be a huge toll on us, not only emotionally but mentally. On another spectrum, I see this card telling us to participate more in what does bring you satisfaction and delight! If you have felt closed up lately and a bit like a hermit, this is a great time to step out of your shell and rekindle your social life.

Raising the bar in the quality of work we do and how we present ourselves in what we create is the focus of the 8 of Pentacles right now. Step it up and improve what you are working on, fine tune these things that are most important to you. We can work on transitioning our work from drafts to reality – whether this is in the field of art, writing, or even business. It’s all about going forth in the next step of the process and working on the details and labor involved. This reminds me a lot of the intentions we had set during the Black Moon – it’s time to get them into motion and work towards manifesting!

As we settle into the waning phase of the moon and greet another New Moon at the end of the week, we may be drawn to pulling ourselves back a bit into the shadows. This is a common time to retreat, relax, and release. The cards this week reflect the Waning Moon and the New Moon in Libra energy well! This week I’m using the Spirit Speak and Circo Tarot yet again – they have become one of my favorite decks to work with together! The Spirit Speak stands out so well in it’s black and white glory with the Circo Tarot lighting up the reading with it’s vivid color. Let’s see what may be in the cards for us this week!

Theme // 5 of Cups

Oh boy, when I saw this card pop up, I’ll admit… it wasn’t exactly what I had hoped for! However, this is a fantastic card to take with us this week. It’s all about release, fitting huh?! Let it all out so that we can move freely again. Sometimes we hold onto emotions and relationships that simply do not do us any good, this builds and builds inside of us like water in a dam. Eventually that wall needs to come down and release the water pushing against it. Don’t fear release work, use it to your benefit. Think of it as clearing the cobwebs that are just collecting more dust.

Beginning // 2 of Knives

Seems we may be feeling a bit shut off starting the week. This leads me to think that there are things we need to focus on and handle but we are just too unwilling to do so. Let’s get this out of the way… take off the blindfold and let’s do this! Wrap up last minute things on our desk – replay and hit “send” to emails that you have been hanging on to – and make the choices that you have been stalling on. Let’s move into the New Moon fresh and with a clean slate so we can truly focus on what we want to manifest in the next cycle!

Midweek // 5 of Knives

I get a sense that somethings may be hard to let go this week – that we may be holding on to some hope that we know deep down just isn’t going to happen. It can be hard to face defeat and loss but if we want to move forward and move out of this phase quickly, then we need to dust ourselves off and get out of the sand. We can’t control everything, some things are just not meant to be or aren’t worth the energy we want to put in. Take this as a message that it is time to let go and move on, don’t drag yourself through something that won’t help you grow.

End // 3 of Pentacles

Ahhh… a nice little card to see as we end the week and move into the weekend! I get a true sense of “freshness” coming from this card after the New Moon. It only seems fitting since the New Moon in Libra is all about balance – partnerships – relationship – and creativity to name a few. The 3 of Pentacles is about community and collaboration, it also shows balance in working with others. The acrobat in this card relies on the audience to keep them going and keep them inspired! While the audience relies on the acrobat to entertain them! This is a mutual relationship happening in this card. Intuitively I also get the sense that after a long week of feeling cut off and drawn in, it’s time to go out and enjoy the company of others. This could even mean going to the movies, seeing a play, or watching your kids dance in the park. I love the energy coming off this card!

Oop’s! I’m running behind a bit today, but never fear the weekly reading is here… couldn’t resist that cheesy little rhyme – reminded me of Underdog! Lately I’ve been looking at patterns in a reading and some jumped out at me today. For starters, this is a heavy wands reading and looking at which wands are on the table this tells me that we may have some delays going on this week in the movement department – but it looks like we will end up in better spirits so hang on!

weekahead

This week I’m using the Circo Tarot for our weekly pulls and I’m also using the Spirit Speak for our theme of the week. This theme may show up as we progress through the week so keep an eye out for it!

Theme // 7 of Wands

Persistence! Keep pushing through despite what is coming your way. Keep your eye on the prize and keep on trucking, this may benefit us in great ways if we keep looking forward. There may be some annoying hiccups in the week but just greet them with a laugh and keep reaching for what you have in sight. We will need this cards energy this week to get us through, trust me!

Beginning // 10 of Wands

Man, oh man did I feel this card this morning. Things may feel as if they are dragging as we start this week, it did for me this morning! I could not get out of bed and keep my eyes open – I felt like a zombie all morning, if I could have crawled I would have but I think I would have freaked the dog out. The message I’m getting from this card is that the start of the week may literally drag on, sucks… I know, I’m just the messenger! This card also seems as if we will have a large load to deal with, another thing we don’t want to hear but it could be a major factor. Don’t let this energy drag you through the whole week, know that it’s just temporary and the load will get lighter as the week goes on. This could also be a hint for us to not take on too much starting out if you can avoid it!

Midweek // 7 of Knives

After being dragged through the mud by the 10 of Wands no wonder your holding on tight. It’s ok though, we can start to release our load and put things down – no need to clutch everything so tight right now. This also feels that we may be a little closed up by the middle of the week, so if your feeling like you want to keep to yourself and not share your thoughts… go for it, you earned that right! Just don’t be sneaky about it, let people know that you need your space. The Full Moon just passed us last week… RELEASE, RELEASE, RELEASE! This is perfect timing right now as we make our way to the Waning Moon on the 23rd.

Ending // 6 of Wands

Remember how I said we will end the week in better spirits, ta-da! The 6 of Wands is here and lets take advantage of this victory! You earned it this week, especially if it was extra tough on you. And guess what?! Mercury Retrograde is over, we made it!! When I look at this card I see a worn out soul who is taking what they can get, people are handing them wands left and right. If someone is offering there help or assistance, take it! Taking a look at this card I see a person who is adorned in flower necklaces and on the ground by their feet I can see new plants sprouting. This tells me that things are beginning to bloom again, there is the opportunity of new growth to begin again. Things are looking up so take a deep breath in and release it out. What accomplishments will you be celebrating this week?

Weekly Reading: Sept 12-18

Weekly Reading: Sept 12-18

Happy Monday! I’m trying to move the weekly readings to Monday instead of Sunday, this way I can split my time better with my family and my cards. Since Monday’s are back to the grind – husband goes to work and my daughter heads to school, I don’t feel as guilty hiding away in my studio playing with cards, haha!

I have some new things I want to start discussing on the blog soon – it’s aimed at the divine feminine and a goddess centered spirituality. The past week, a lot has changed on my end of the world and I feel like I have been cracked open (in a good way). Watch out for that post coming soon, I will also be sending out the monthly newsletter here soon too (I’m way behind haha!).

For this weeks reading I’m using the Alchemical Tarot and I pulled a card from the Spirit Speak Tarot for our theme! I’ve really been enjoying the Alchemical Tarot, it has been giving me some fantastic readings – I’m slowly reading through the book as well. On to the reading!

img_20160912_090659

Beginning // The Empress

When I do readings for myself, the Empress is usually my significator card since it is also my birth card and soul card. I know most use a court card but it’s just never been my thing – or perhaps I’m just never certain which court cards suits me best! Seeing the Empress pop up tells me that I need to keep my eyes open this week.

My attention was drawn towards the Empress herself and how she was posed, she looks to be gazing towards the Temperance card to the right. I feel like there is a longing in her gaze, perhaps she is hoping for some balance in her week already. The case of the Mondays may have taken hold of her (I know it did for me this morning). I’m reading this card exactly like a mother in general (or father) – rushing around to get everyone else ready for their day (getting the kids ready for school) and not leaving much time to tend to themselves. Take some time at the start of your week to take care of your own needs – we often forget about this, especially if you are a parent!

Midweek // Temperance

Slow down… If your rushing around this week, take this as a message to breath. Take some deep breaths when you are feeling like things are going too fast or you are feeling a bit stressed. This is a card of balance, patience, and moderation. If you are indeed feeling like the weight of the world is resting on your shoulders, remember that this feeling will pass. I’m being brought back to the Empress card, find a moment in your week for yourself. This will help balance out your days and not drag you down so hard.

Ending // Ace of Cups

Let it all out! We are ending the week with some new opportunities – keep your heart open for these! I’m feeling a lot of compassion flow through this card. This is a great time to give back to those who may have had a helping hand in getting you through the week – express gratitude where gratitude is felt. I also see this card as letting your creative juices flow – create!

Theme // 6 of Swords

Move on if you feel the urge to do so – this all about mental movement! If something isn’t working, don’t make it… it’s not worth your energy or time! I’ve already been using this cards energy this morning and Monday isn’t even half over yet!!

Weekly Reading: Sept 5-11

Weekly Reading: Sept 5-11

This week I’m using the Alchemical Tarot for this weeks reading, I’ve had some great results so far with this deck and it made for a perfect deck to use today! I also decided to pull a theme card for the week coming up using the Spirit Speak. Sometimes I pull a 4th card and other times I don’t, just depends how I’m feeling. On to the weekly reading!

IMG_20160904_120504

Beginning // Ace of Vessels

What a great card to start off the week! I always read Ace’s as possible opportunities, so we are given the opportunity to love this week… this doesn’t have to be aimed towards other people like most think when they see this card. This could be a hobby you fall in love with, a new book you fall in love with, or even just a website that landed on your Twitter feed that you fall in love with. Be open to what comes your way as we begin the week, and don’t keep your heart too closed up. Keep it open so you can feel this opportunity when it comes knocking!

Midweek // 6 of Swords

I get the sense that things will be moving quickly and you may be getting through things quickly as this card tends to lean in the field of going in a quick direction, there is a lot of movement in this card. I always feel this card is the “action” card, and when I see it pop up it tells me that now is the time to act! We could also be getting work done quickly and even be quick to speak and think!

End // Death

Well, the Death card has shown up in the perfect position… the end of the week! Death in this reading is telling us that things are coming to an end, we are quickly finishing things up just like the 6 of Swords suggested and making room for new ventures to show up in our lives. Sometimes putting something to rest that hasn’t served us well can reenergize us so that we can birth something new, it’s hard to drag around something that only holds us back… cutting these things free can leave us with a sense of freedom and fresh perspective before we begin, yet again, a new week!

Theme of the Week // The Star

Now this card has been on my mind for a few weeks. I’ve been meaning to do a post all about the Star card and what it truly means to me, I was thrilled to see it show up this morning! Not only does it have a good message for us but it also nudges me to write that post I’ve wanted to write! I’ll try my best to get that done for sure now. As far as the message, most would relate the Star card to “hope and guidance, etc”… for me, this card means to be your true authentic self… whether that is weird, collected, artistic, and everything in between. While reading The Creative Tarot by Jessa Crispin, she mentioned that she sees this card as the “David Bowie Ziggy Stardust” card and it resonated so well with me when I read this passage:

“… it’s a marker that it is time to think about how we are positioned in the world and how we would like to be… When you start working in alignment with your own weirdo desires, other weirdos – the best kinds of weirdos- tend to find you.”

The Star card is one card that used to make me cringe in a reading… I know, strange! I never liked the idea of a card ebing so filled with hope and wishes, it never seemed to fit for me. I always thought this card seemed a bit weird and quirky. So this week, our theme is to find who we truly are and embrace that! Find your authentic voice, find your authentic you. I really believe that when you can be truly authentic, others will take notice. It’s no fun to be a cookie cutter person – step outside of the lines this week and find what resonates with you!

Weekly Reading: Aug 29 – Sept 4

Weekly Reading: Aug 29 – Sept 4

I was really looking forward to this weeks reading, last week it ended up being very useful for me! For this weeks reading I’m using the Spirit Speak. This deck has been slowly replacing my Collective Tarot and becoming my main deck.

This week we are slipping not only into mercury retrograde, but also have a new moon headed our way (another new moon at the the end of the month, too). For those that are effected by mercury retrograde, you may want to pay attention!

1IMG_20160828_141608

Beginning // 5 of Swords

Back to the grind, ugh! Try your best to block out the noise, keep to yourself, and get work done amidst the chaos of your typical “back to work” week. I see the week starting out a bit frustrating but don’t let that set the mood for the rest of the week, just get past the first few days and it should smooth out as the days go on. For those that are effected by Mercury Retrograde… this card may be for you! Mercury slips into retrograde on the 30th of August and will end Sept 22nd.

It’s funny, I originally added “I’ve never been effected by mercury retrograde”… but literally, when I went to see the preview of this post real quick before publishing it… it wouldn’t load and then froze! Luckily, I listened to my intuition right before I hit “refresh” and decided to highlight and save all that I typed up… just in case. So glad I did that, when I refreshed the page, I did in fact lose everything I typed. Little reminder, listen to your intuition! It saved my butt this afternoon!

Midweek // 2 of Swords

Speaking of moving through the week, we may be greeted with some heavy decisions or choices to make! With the week being heavy with swords cards, I’m getting the notion that we need to pay attention…. even while we are trying to block out the unnecessary chatter. If you are hit with some decisions to make that require thoughtful answers, don’t rush into them. Instead bring your focus to where it’s needed to be sure you are giving everything a proper look over and weigh all the pros and cons! This is about a balanced decision, you want your heart and your head in on the matter at hand. Also, there is a new moon this week so this card can also be directing us to cut out what does not serve us right now… this could indeed leave us with some choices on what to keep and what to remove.

End // The Hanged Man

I feel this card is very much tied into our midweek card, the 2 of Swords. Perhaps we are still having a hard time making a decision or giving some answers up. This would be a great time to revaluate your current position and perhaps give it a new point of view. Sometimes turning everything upside down can help you see things in a new light… or make you dizzy! Whatever you are going through at this point of the week, again, don’t rush into anything too quickly. I feel that you can take some time to really give what you are facing some thought before taking action… or this card could also suggest to go bungee jumping and have a fun weekend, haha!
