Weekly Forecast 10/12-10/17/2015

I haven't done a tarot Blog and a while but here is the new  Raven Prophecy Tarot.  I treated myself to a brand new release deck and ordered it before it came out!  I love this deck and a friend of mine has been playing with it, so I was inspired to pull it out for this week's forecast.  I love the Shamanic Feel to this deck and I am always happy with a deck that combines my love for Shamanism and Tarot.

We start the Week out with the Ten of Cups.  This is a card that promises fulfillment emotionally; however, in the Raven Tarot, I see quite a crowded situation.  This week seems to be a week of sorting things out; and when I look at this card, I hear all the Ravens talking at once.  While family and friendships are a wonderful gift, it appears its time to step back from the opinions of others and sort things out for yourself.  A visit with the Hermit might be just the thing for you! 

Starting Wednesday, we have the Five of Swords.  You have got plenty in the palm of your hand, but it's time to sort things out and let some of the excess go.  With Fall already on us, those of us in the Northern Hemisphere are soon going to be hunkered down inside for a bit.  Both literally and figuratively, too much is too much! All that stuff you hang on to has its own set of emotion.  As effortlessly as a feather floats to the ground, we release the things that aren't serving us at this time and free ourselves to more fruitful options.

We end the week with Page of Cups.  You've done your homework, congratulations! Now it's time to nurture your new self!  Who do you want to be?  Spend the weekend dreaming about it!  If dreaming never happens, creation never occurs. This is a weekend of manifestation. Have fun, take a walk and nurture your new baby self!  Imagine the impossible and create it! The time is now, and the opportunity is yours.  Much love to you all!

Good afternoon, folks, hope your weekend was a beautiful one!  Here is This week's forecast.  The beginning of the week mirrors how beautiful it truly is outside! It has been a truly spectacular autumn day!  The Cold is supposed to move into KY, so it has been a bittersweet day indeed!  When I see this card, I am reminded as well as the Rider Waite Deck picture, which as well features a child.  Enjoy this moment, this now...We always want to rush headlong into the next moment and the time is indeed now!  like childhood, life this moment will be a memory.  Humans spend far too much time desiring that next best thing when the next best thing is the now!  Gratitude for gifts is the message of The Sun Card in this particular draw.  Enjoy the journey with a grateful and joyful heart! 

We move into midweek and find ourselves deep into the Ten of Swords.  Things have gotten a little uphill, which tends to happen in November.  This is a warning to slow it down!  I can't help but notice that there is already Christmas advertisements out pushing the beginning of a shopping season.  This is creating a general fervor among the population to get things started before time runs out.  The energy in general is getting a little freaky lately! Don't get caught up in the whirlwind that others have created.  YOU are in complete control of your own destiny.  Like the deer in the background, this is a time to step back from the general population and observe without engaging and without judgment.  Therein lies your freedom. 

And finally, the weekend comes to us! I LOVE the Ten of Cups in this deck!  Here is a man who is emotionally and physically fulfilled inviting the viewer to join him!  If you did your homework, you should move out of the Harry Scarey midweek just fine and into a joyful weekend.  On a side note, I just did a reading for a lady and sharing her cooking talents came forward. Her guides gave her the message to share her gift came with others.  How significant it is to teach a person to cook.  When we teach a person to cook, to really cook, we teach them to LIVE!  Enjoy your your abundance and your talents.  And share them.  That is how the world goes round.

Watch Your Mouth!

During a reading today, a woman repeatedly asked me if her business venture was going to fail or if her husband was going to leave her when she went away on business.  All aspects of the reading were positive.  Here husband was a solid, stable personality.  She was a person who was greatly organized and one of those gifted people who had the ability to make her ventures successful.  Her issue?  The heart of the matter was herself! Each time I did a spread for her, the outcome was good, but the possible blocks were her own fears and insecurities.  Will her relationship fail her?  If her husband has his choice, no!  However, there are issues within herself that were going to stand in her way. I am going away and my husband will leave me because of this  is a mindset that was not going to serve her marriage.  Instead, her guides suggested she focus on trusting her husband's stability and the gift of his support.  They suggested she use words to speak the truth of her successful relationship and her savvy business skills.

Often, we can vastly improve our situations by minding our own words.  This is a well known psychological term coined Self-Fufilling Prophecy.  In a nutshell,  self-fulfilling prophesy translates words have power. Tell a child he has issues with reading, and he will struggle with reading!  Want to succeed?  Stop  second guessing yourself! Take a look at the way you talk to yourself, and there you might just find the root of your struggles. Manifestation is empowered by belief and trust.  A simple change of thinking from I'm not sure if I made the right decision to I am competent, successful business woman can make all the difference in the world.  Granted, to reach this point, many of us have to go through a great amount of work and healing.  However, taking the step to change your thoughts and words-even if you do not yet believe your new positive language-is an excellent first step toward manifesting your bright future.

This week's forecast is taken from Higher Intuitions oracle deck.  how appropriate that we start the week with the beautiful Monarch Butterfly.  It's now October, and they have begun their great migration south.  Just last week, I caught a fleeting glimpse of one feeding among the fall flowers. What a treasure.  It is in this context that I am drawn to the words on the card, "Build Your Wings."  It is that we are on the cusp of a great migration ourselves.  Time to take some time and build your power, because you are awakening and the journey is just beginning.  Amidst the hustle of the week's beginning, this card tells us to slow down, turn off the electronics and find your center. 

The second card of the week is the Angel Fish and is titled, "Call on Your Angels."  This builds so naturally off the beginning of the week where we find ourselves needing to back off and build ourselves up.  Steer away from the stubborn urge to do things by yourself.  It's time to ask for help and help is there for you!  Your angels cannot work on your behalf without your request for assistance.  That overwhelmed feeling is completely unnecessary.  Remember help is just a request away.

We bring up the week with Moose, "Balance."  I am specifically drawn to the sense of community of the picture.  See the two birds perched on the moose?  This is a week to accept assistance.  Remember, you are not a failure for not going it by yourself.  The theme of the week seems to be open up to the helping hand of others.  Dear Ones, we have spirit and family and friends so we can give and receive. We need to let go of the tendencies to want to do it all by ourselves when a little help is all we need :-) 

I want to draw your attention to the pairs in this draw of cards.  Each card drawn has two of something, creating the Angel Number 222, the number of manifestation. Any ideas you have planted or are manifesting are beginning to take root.  Although the journey seems uphill, now is not the time to give up!  Keep watering those seeds and don't miss out on the miracle before it occurs!  Keep up the positive affirmations and the good work, for soon it will pay off :-) 

Have a great week folks!

Weekly Post 9/29/2014

Lovely beautiful morning, my friends! Today's weekly reading is brought to you via my wonderful Bev and Jim at  Ohm Sweet Ohm.  Last week, I attended a festival so in Lexington and saw this deck.  This reading is from The Guilded Tarot, by Barbara Moore. We begin the week with the Emperor.  In this context, Emperor tells me that although you are ready for action, remember every action has a reaction.  The emperor never reacts out of emotion, he reacts from a state of balance.  Although action in your situation is necessary, make your action deliberate and avoid the repercussions of rash behavior.  If you react in balance, the outcome will be to your benefit. 

Midweek brings us the Three of Wands.  In this context, this is an emotional card.  If you have had a conversation with a loved one, they are sitting on it processing the conversation.  The man is waiting for his ship to come in and so are you, dear reader.  I know it is hard to watch and wait, especially if the conversation was a hard one.  If you played your cards right, (remember The Emperor?) your sincerity and balance will pay off in the end.  There is nothing you can do to control the situation, this is a time to allow the other person to sit with there emotions and a time for you to practice patience and step out of the need for control.  In the context of The Emperor, you have made your action, and sent the energy out.  Now you await the results. Patiently, you await and there is no action that can move things now.  Patience is an art that we can all use practice in!  Sometimes it's hard to sit and wait things out.  Wait is often the answer we get when we implore Spirit.

We end the week with The Queen of Swords.  Your patience has served you well, my friends and you will reap the benefits of your careful choices.  Queen of Swords is deliberate in her actions and speaks with a connection to the Divine.  Remember, the outcome depends on your careful choices.  When we act with a deep connection to spirit, we move with ease and without attachment to outcome.  Here the queen sits in the results of her hard work.  Allow yourself a little time to rest and give yourself a pat on your back.  You deserve it!  Have a great week, folks!

Good morning folks!  This week's forecast is taken from Seven Farmer's Earth Magic deck.  the beginning of the week, I pulled the card Stone People: Vigilance.  The guides are wanting you to know that the beginning of the week is a time to stand in your own grace.  By grace we mean non-combative and in alignment with spirit. The attention in the card is immediately drawn to the strength of the stone, but is softened by the element of water.  The  state of the water is very still.  So take a deep cleansing breath and soften your focus.  Now is not the time to engage actively in debate or conflict, but to instead draw upon your resources and stand quietly and unmoving in your own truth.  The middle of the week brings in the card Dance: Celebration.  "And David Danced Before the Lord." Samuel 6:14.  This is a time to connect deeply and with the sacred movement to celebrate life.  Move in unmitigated joy.  Laugh while you move.  Be spontaneous. While you are at it, have a banana split for supper Wednesday.  This is about feeling alive.  Do nothing but that which makes you completely and utterly happy.  Your heart will thank you for it!  For the end of the week, I pulled Music: Harmony.  This is a call to rearrange your surroundings a little during the weekend. Dust, clean and sage.  Often, stagnancy in our life is a reflection of stuck energy.  By cleaning our home and clearing the energy, we are creating a sense of balance all around.  Put a few clear quartz crystals in the four directions of your home.  This will provide continuous cleansing in charge throughout the new week.  Have a wonderful week every one :)

Better Late Than Never! This Weeks Forecast

Posted on July 21, 2014 at 11:02 PM Comments comments (13)
Good Monday night, Tuesday morning!  I am late with the post on this weeks energy!  These cards are based on water colors by the mother of my friend Jenny Abell of Earthstone Treasures. Well folks, it looks as if last weeks inner-child work is continuing its momentum! Your job for the week is to continue the work on finding your new balance.  With all the hard work, you may be finding the need to re-adjust yourself.  Looks like you got a little bumpy start to the week, huh?  Cut yourself shaving on Monday morning? Late for class or work because you couldn't find your keys? Never fear, now is the time to center yourself!  By all means, if you have a drum, pick up your drum and sound it!  If  you do yoga, then do yoga! Now is the time to connect.  None of the above?  My clients will know the next preach!  Take of your shoes and get your feet in the dirt.  When you feel the rhythm of the heartbeat of your mother, you will move right back into sync.  

If you do your home work, midweek is going to go easier for you.  Time to take your mind of things and treat yourself to a cup of tea (or cups of coffee if you are a shaman)  midweek finds us in the spark of creativity.  Give your solar plexus a boost by getting out in the sun and you will find the solution to that problem that has been nagging you the past two weeks.  Writers write, painters paint because the the creative juices are flowing! 

Which brings us to the final leg of the week.  All this energy is going to create momentum for more growth!  Get rid of what no longer serves you!  That includes that jumpsuit from 1985!  It just doesn't suit your needs any more!  Take a new route to work or try a new lipstick.  This card is about implementing the growth from the past too weeks.  You are a bright being, so shine your light.  Keep out of the rut by trying something new!  Your life is moving ever forward :-)


Praying Mantis-A Message

Posted on July 17, 2014 at 12:38 AM Comments comments (12)
Living in the city is no excuse for not connecting with nature :)  This little guy here paid my wonderful friend Letha and I a visit while we were having coffee at the local Starbucks in my home of Louisville, KY.  He landed on my friends shoulder, and me being the shaman geek that I am, jumped up and started dancing around..."Look a praying mantis on your shoulder, he has a message for you!"  Meanwhile, Letha, who has a true appreciation for all animals, cringes, "Get him off before he crawls on my face!"  Add a minute of me dancing and Letha cringing until I finally moved him to her purse where she could better appreciate his beauty.  I first had to play with him and commune with him for just a moment ;-)

Praying Mantis is symbolic of the power of stillness.  What a wonderful complement to this weeks message!  According to Ted Andrews, Praying Mantis teaches us to still our busy outer mind and connect with our inner power and hear the voice of our inner teacher.  Looking for answers?  Worrying gets you no where.  Go into your still place and wait.  The answer will find  you there.

Weekly Reading 2014

Posted on July 15, 2014 at 10:00 AM Comments comments (7)
Good Morning!  Today I have the weekly card draw with the Akashic Records on July 14, 2014.  I need to start doing these on Sunday Morning!  This is from Doreen Virtue's ascended Masters Oracle Cards.

We start the week out with the card  "Teacher."  In this context, the card is referring to your inner teacher. Take that time out of your busy schedule to connect to your higher self! The Record keepers are noting the deep purple in the card, making a reference to The Third Eye.  The affirmation for this is "I see and know my own truth."  I got the message that there is much inner child work going on.  Are you caring for your inner child?  Listen to what this child has to say.  He/She has an important truth for you this week!  

The Second card is "Purification."  With all of this work going on early in the week, it comes to no surprise that we find ourselves needing to focusing on cleaning ourselves out!  Are you drinking clean water?  Maybe tap water is not what you need!  Make sure you filter your water or drink spring water to cleanse out your body.  Pay attention to your diet! Good wholesome foods, fresh fruits and vegetables are needed to support all of the Lessons learned during the earlier part of the week.

We finish up the week with the card "Stay Focused."  It's been a tiring week, and if you are doing the work that is suggested at the beginning of the week, you may be finding yourself a little tired; especially if your inner teacher has uncovered some very sensitive issues!  Stay with it! The week is almost over.  They want you to continue the work at hand.  Also please be mindful of making mistakes due to fatigue.  Pay attention to how much rest you are getting as emotional and physical fatigue can affect your ability to make decisions and stay on task.  Stay present to avoid mistakes in your everyday life!  

Folks it's going to be a busy week for you, but the weekend is coming!

Focus During the Super Moon

Posted on July 12, 2014 at 1:07 PM Comments comments (19)
Today our guides want to talk about focusing  intentions.  Now that it's Saturday, many folks are thinking about sleeping in and lazy summer afternoons.  Tonight, however, is the night of the super moon.  The element of the full moon is a time of cleansing and charging.  The super moon amplifies the energies of this.  The end result is time to clearly move forward with your intentions and do the work today to ignite the way for the coming months.

This moon is about cleansing, whether one is aware or not.  Prepare for it.  It's going manifest a great amount of emotion in the world around.  The energy of the super moon is igniting a fire and issues that need to be recognized are coming to surface; emotions are running high. People are going to be very edgey.  Show some compassion to irrational outbursts (within reason) from the general public.  You may run into a frustrated cashier and please be highly aware of other drivers while on the road. Staying focused and aware will help you to successfully navigate the energies this weekend without being pulled into the frenzied energies of high emotions. 

Now is the time to gather your resources.  Call on your guides and power animals.  Do your spiritual homework.  Devote some time meditating.  If you drum, sound your drum.  Drum for the healing of all around to ease emotions and increase awareness.   Ask that spirit help you to focus yourself so you can heal and release the things that no longer serve you.  When you move with intention, you will feel mor centered and less overwhelmed. Set your intentions for the month ahead.  It's a good weekend to get out in nature and put your bare feet on the earth.  Doing so will help ground you and will connect you so you can fully experience the beauty of the super moon.
