Tarot Card Tuesday for Feb. 25 - March 3. A 5 Card Reading!

Hi! I originally posted this week's reading to the fan page. U can click on the names of the cards to see pictures of the cards from Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine's Angel Tarot deck. :)

Current Situation - “King of Earth” - SITUATIONS: This is a successful time. Your current projects will go well. You may be promoted or offered a higher salary. Your talents and skills will bring rewards for you and others. Accept the opportunities offered you and have confidence that you’ll succeed! PEOPLE: Someone with outstanding business skills who is good with money and can provide excellent advice. A person who has been successful in a career and now enjoys the finer things in life.
You could be this person or be getting help from this person.

Your Expectations - “Four of Water” - It’s time to reevaluate your situation, because you’re currently missing an opportunity. The solution you’re seeking is right in front of your face. Fortunately, positive forces are working to assist you now. Open your eyes to the possibilities, and accept the help that’s being offered to you. In this position, it indicates that you are currently feeling restless or discontent, but know that there has to be a way to make things happen. Think things through. Find the space and the time and you'll seize your opportunities.

Hidden Influences - “Eight of Fire” - Hold on tight, because things now move into high gear! Past delays are over, and your plans manifest with swiftness and energy. You may feel caught off guard as frenzied activities take over. It’s exhilarating and a little overwhelming, but it feels good to see your dreams coming true.

Advice - “The Wheel” - The angels sent you this card because of positive changes occurring in your life. Expect and enjoy beneficial new opportunities as they present themselves. This is an optimal time to make big and small 

Outcome - “King of Air” - SITUATIONS: You may receive valuable advice from an intelligent professional. It’s important that your decisions be fair and equitable to all involved. Don’t hesitate to consult a third party, if necessary, yet speak your mind with confidence. PEOPLE: A person who’s at the top of his or her field, especially in an intellectual area such as law, science, or business. Someone who’s an excellent speaker and is known for the ability to be objective and diplomatic.

Currently, material matters are going well, even if "only in your mind". Remember that planning and visualizing are the beginning of what makes things happen. You might feel stuck, but know there's an opportunity there somewhere. You just have to look. No doubt you feel the high energy of what is just around the corner. You don't see it quite yet, but it is coming and you can feel the changes. You are advised to put those changes into place so you can move forward. It is a significant time for positive changes. You will be able to communicate effectively and be able to detach from drama, having balanced heart and mind. 
Remember that we have the 6 of cups/water for our general theme for February. This card indicates that memories are resurfacing for a reason. Since Mercury has been retrograde most of the month, this makes perfect sense as that's one of Mercury's m.o.'s- bringing up issues to be re-visited and resolved. So, apply that layer over the above reading. What memories have come up for you and how has it made you feel stuck, but know there's more out there waiting for you?

Mercury goes direct on the 28th and things can get a little worse before they get better, so stay grounded. Contact me if you want a reading, Reiki, or custom healing crystal jewelry!

Meaning of 8 of Cups and Queen of Swords + Your Reading for Tarot Card Tuesday

Queen of Air from Angel Tarot by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine
8 of Water from Angel Tarot by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine
Hello Friends! As I was doing my own reading this morning, I got the Queen of Air (Queen of Cups) … again. Until recently, I hadn't gotten this card for myself much, but now she is showing up a lot. Today, I got the message that I should use this card for Tarot card Tuesday. I also pulled another card to ask for clarification, and got the 8 of Water (Eight of Cups). Both cards have similar meanings, but that may not be totally obvious initially.

The Queen of Air (Swords) is an intelligent woman who is perceptive and not afraid to say exactly what is on her mind. If it's not working, she gets rid of it. She cuts out whatever does not serve her be it person, place, or thing. She is unattached, but not cold. She's a perfectionist, but not judgmental. Her nickname is "the Garage Sale Queen" because she's always clearing house. ;) When you get this card, it can refer to an actual person who is like this or just the need to cut things, people and situations loose. 

This suit is all about the workings of the mind and how you are thinking affects what you feel and do. When referring to a situation, it can mean actually clearing physical clutter (or needing to), which has an energetic and psychological weight, cleaning up your eating and drinking habits to clear out your body, ending relationships or leaving a job that is holding you back or otherwise not serving you, and/or getting rid of thoughts or old beliefs that limit you. This card asks you to make clear decisions by seeing through hidden agendas while keeping a sense of humor.

The 8 of Water (Cups) is about wanting to move on from a situation, be it a relationship, a job, or a project. You're ready to be done. You may have felt like it wasn't spiritually meaningful any more and moving forward will bring you growth. You are ready to leave the past behind; to say no to something so you can say yes to something else. This suit is all about emotions.

These 2 cards together say that in your heart and mind you are ready to get rid of what no longer serves your highest good (be it person, place, or thing) and move forward on your path towards a better life. Cut off what is weighing you down, clouding up your mind, and generally getting in the way of true happiness. De-clutter your home, body (your spiritual home), car/bike (another physical vehicle for your spirit), relationships, inbox, newsletters, Facebook groups… whatever takes up too much room in any way now. 

Mercury in Retrograde has us reviewing and revisiting the past, so as you do so, clearly there are things to cut out and move forward from. 

To sum up: Let Go! 

An affirmation: "I let go of what I don't need. The past is done and I am free!"

Remember that healing crystals, Reiki, Tarot, meditation, yoga asanas, and flower essences can help you transition from one phase of life to another without losing ground. You can let loose without loosing it. ;) 

My healing crystal jewelry store is now open! After selling some and finishing more, I was able to list 22 items!! This is Archangel Rafael's number and he is the archangel of healing! It is the Master Healer number and my intention for this jewelry making venture is to provide methods of healing for people. I didn't plan for there to be that number when I made the first batch of listings, but the Universe has wonderful ways of speaking to us.

Mercury goes Retrograde Tomorrow! Things You Need To Know

Mercury goes retrograde tomorrow! Start whatever you can today, because starting tomorrow, communication and technology have misfires, thinking is cloudier and memory can be hard to wrangle. It starts out in Pisces, making us feel like we are in a dream state (even more so than usual during Mercury in retrograde). If you have to sign contracts, double and triple check. If you can avoid them, do, but life goes on. Do what you have to do.

This article is a really good perspective on what Mercury's agenda is and how we can exercise patience and examine what you should learn from situations the trickster sets up. Remember that issues from the past are likely to resurface for re-examination. Keep a journal close by, breathe, drink plenty of water, rest when needed, do some yoga. You might want to consider hiding any high drama people from your Facebook newsfeed. There is a nice summary at the bottom of dates that are especially significant during this retrograde period.

If you would like further insight and guidance with a Tarot reading by me, please see my Tarot page. Last night, I created a custom healing crystal bracelet for someone who was looking ahead at this Mercury in retrograde period and knew she would need some extra help. If you know there are things coming up that you would like some healing assistance with, contact me ( Narah (at) me (dot) com or PM me on Facebook) for a custom piece of healing crystal jewelry. Reiki is the ultimate balancer and can be sent to people, pets, plants, and even situations.  I see many things to help you with whatever healing you are seeking. See my Reiki page.

Tarot Card Tuesday- Meaning of the Tower (Life Experience) + your Reading!

This photo and post by The Moon Woman inspired me to ask the Tarot to give me a card that represented what she was telling us to embrace:

"Moon's still in Aries so this is the perfect time to plan an adventure for 2014...something that lights your wick! Something that stretches you, perhaps scares you a little because it's just out of your comfort zone.

Waxing moon in Aries is the time to do it.

Aries evokes our inner child. So if your inner child is afraid to take steps out into the world, to explore new experiences & make new friends beyond your known universe...consider the following process:

Close your eyes & take your awareness down into your belly (your emotional center where the archetypal energy of your inner child resides).

Visualize or sense your inner child (you can look at a photo of you as a child if this helps).

Ask your inner child, what is the worst thing that could happen if you stepped beyond your known reality. Allow them the time to communicate to you in their own way. For example you may use your left hand to draw their response.

This enables our inner adult to see what fear is holding us back from growing & expanding. Like the 'Boogie Man' - it's not so scary when we face our fear directly because it allows us to get our head around it & come up with coping strategies & solutions. It's the anticipation of the unknown that terrifies & paralyzes.

When we confront the saboteur that's tormenting our inner child, we can stop half living a life in fear & start embracing life with both arms wide open, full of wonder & a spirited sense of adventure!"

"Life Experience" from the Angel Tarot deck by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

This is the card that came up and it is so appropriate! Traditionally, this card is called "The Tower" and is full of scary images like lightning striking a tower, it crumbling and a people falling to their death. Doreen and Radleigh changed this card because people get so paralyzed by their fear of the images that they fail to get the real message. This card does denote rapid, inevitable change, which can be pretty frightening if you aren't grounded. If you are scared, it is difficult to move forward. However, the card tells us that we've recently had a revelation that forever changes how we view ourselves and the world. Remember that "soft reality is more real than hard reality" (~Deepak Chopra) Kali and Shiva the Destroyer both have destructive energy without regard for our Ego- that which holds onto fear and structures of the material world. They come to mind today as I conjure images to explain the energy and meaning of this card. llusions crumble like the tower in the traditional image on the card.  Venus is now direct, but for 40 days, we questioned what we love and value. During that time, a Scorpio moon had us purging what no longer serves us. What was left is what we intensely love. You may have known for a while that the changes were needed and have been procrastinating, or it may be that something has happened to force these changes. Either way, it is time for growth and to Spread Your Wings!! (Notice that there is a fairy in the top picture and the Tarot card clearly says to spread your wings!)

My revelation recently was that my Divine Life Purpose is way more important than I gave it credit. When I asked how many guardian Angels I have, the answer was 5 million! If I have 5 million Angels assigned just to me, then I must have something big to do this life time! Have I mentioned that I am an incarnated Angel? I found this out several months ago and then learned that incarnated Angels have a large number of Guardian Angels. 5 million is a pretty large number! This is definitely something that has blown away many of my thoughts about myself and what I'm to do this life time. 

As mentioned above, it's time for adventure! You may feel a bit hesitant to go on this adventure- like Bilbo or Frodo when Gandalf came calling- but, your mission is important. Now is the time to act! The Chinese New Year just started on January 30th- Year of the Wood Horse in the month of the Fire Tiger- so it's time to hit the ground running!

Another reason to start _now_ is that Mercury is going retrograde in a couple of days- February 6th. That means foggy thinking, communication delays and misses between people and technology, issues coming up from the past to be re-visited, and re-doing a lot of things. It's best to start new projects before Mercury goes retrograde, so go ahead and take the leap!

For me, this means getting my new store, Whether Stone, stocked and visually set up asap (especially since healing jewelry is such a loving gift and Valentine's Day is coming up!) There is a pile of healing crystal jewelry waiting to be photoed and listed. 

How about you? What have you realized lately that has pushed you to move forward?

If you would like some insight to this question, please set up a Tarot/Oracle card reading with me! Valentine's Day is coming up and it's a perfect time for a Healing Hearts reading as well.
