Tarot Tuesday- Turning Over a New Leaf

Tarot Tuesday! This week, I used the Victorian Fairy Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone, art by Gary Lippincott The first card is called "awakening". It is in the past position. This indicates that you have reflected on lessons you have learned and what you would like to change. It indicates that you looked at yourself with true eyes- those of compassion, that know we are meant to fail at some things.

In the present position, we have the Knight of summer (Knight of cups). This card indicates that due to your self-reflection, right now you are full of optimism on your spiritual quest. You are seeking to connect with the Divine and are joyful in the pursuit. It also indicates you feel full of spiritual purpose.

In the future position, we have the three of summer (three of cups). This card indicates a celebration; most likely, a celebration of the changes you are implementing. This card also tells us that you are looking forward to spending time with friends. It does not have to be a special occasion for this to happen, just the connection you have is a joyful thing for the Soul. Personally, I had just been thinking about asking friends to join me for tea. Just because…

Tarot Tuesday (even though it's Wednesday)

It's Tarot Tuesday… at least it was yesterday on the Facebook Fan Page! The deck is Angel Tarot by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine. Today's reading has three cards – past, present, and future. 

In the past position we have the Knight of air. This represents things happening quickly, using creative solutions to problem-solve, and the need to curb impulsive behavior. On May 20, this card came up under the advice section and referred to getting physical exercise. It does refer back to that reading.

Under the present position, we have the Lovers card. This card refers to making heart felt decisions, healing, and soul relationships. It is telling me that the exercise you have started or are considering is leading to physical healing. Yoga, especially, balances the chakras, strengthens, and increases flexibility. This card is also telling us that Soul relationships, especially friendships, are healing. Soul relationships refer to those that are a deep connection related to past lives.

In the future position, we have the Empress – she nurtures those around her, creative projects, and herself. She is inspiration. Mindful exercise, especially that which we enjoy, raises our Vibes, and leads to nurturing and self-care. This allows the mind and creativity to work more efficiently. In turn, this leads to giving birth to your dreams. Remember that meditation is also a form of "exercise" for the mind, connects you to the Source, and therefore guidance for your true path.

As I was meditating before this meeting, I saw Mercury, messenger of the gods, flying through the sky amongst the stars, telling me that Mercury in retrograde is acutely affecting us. It is currently in Gemini, so information is coming to us quickly. As the first card tells us, be sure to think things through before acting on all of this information. The second card tells us that decisions are significant, as it is a major arcana card. The third card follows with its significance, as it is also a major arcana card.

So, choosing health leads to self-nurturing and the nurturing of our dreams. Continue to take care of yourselves!

Custom Healing Crystal Jewelry Now Available

Several people have contacted me recently about making custom healing jewelry for their particular needs. After making these pieces and knowing the joy it gives both me and the recipient, plus all the messages I'm getting from readings and other methods from the Divine, I can confidently say that this is part of my Life's Purpose: to create this healing jewelry to help people in a beautiful way.

A Tarot/ Oracle card reading can reveal what would benefit you the most if you are unsure, and I can now offer readings in person, by phone, or through email.

If you would like something made just for you, and/or a Tarot/Oracle card reading, contact me by the email address above, through Facebook, or see the information on my website.

Remember to take care of yourself because Mercury is in retrograde, and so is Neptune. It could be an especially emotional time since Mercury will be in the sign of Cancer during this retrograde. Issues with home and family can be especially in the forefront. Just be aware. Here's a previous post on self care during Mercury in retrograde. 

Have a great day!

Tarot Tuesday- Wishes and Healing

For this week's Tarot Tuesday reading, I used the Victorian Fairy Tarot deck by Lunaea Weatherstone and Gary A. Lippincott and the Life Purpose Oracle card deck by Doreen Virtue. This reading is for today and will take you through Monday. The messages are for whoever is reading this right now.

These 2 cards are in the Past position. In this case, it just means the past related to the situation, so it could refer to something recent or in the more distant past. The Ace of Autumn (The Ace of Pentacles) reversed. In the reversed position, it indicates that there is some sort of block in this area, so it tells us that there was some insecurity or negative thinking surrounding finances, support, and/or time. The oracle card tells us that children play a very important part in our Life's Purpose. This can mean our offspring, those children we've adopted, or those whom we teach or care for in some other capacity. You may have been a healer that worked with children previously. This can also refer to projects that are "our babies" and animals that are part of the family (notice the lamb and lion in the picture). 

For me, I used to be a pediatric Occupational Therapist, but stopped working in the field full time when I had trouble functioning due to Hashimoto's thyroiditis (much better now, thank you! :) ). Also, knowing the full story of this spread, this refers to my worry that I would not have enough time to add my current work to my schedule since I had a baby and a 6 year old when it started calling very, very loudly. "But, taking care of my children is my Life's Purpose", I responded nearly as loudly… at first. ;) "Yes, that's one of your Purposes.", the Universe answered… :)

Also, it's very interesting that originally, I was going to use a small Tarot deck and my new Cherub Angel Oracle cards for Children (by Doreen Virtue) and then changed my mind. I laughed when I saw that children were mentioned in the first position, as well as a "negative" card (deciding against). :) 

The Tarot card in the Present position is the 9 of Summer (the Nine of Cups). This is the Wish card! This means you are getting exactly what you asked for, that things are going your way, and there are plenty of reasons to celebrate. If this doesn't make sense to you, start counting your blessings. What are you grateful for? You'll start to see just how good you have it. And if you are still confused, it could be a period of growth for your highest good that may not mesh with what you thought you wanted. When you ask your Soul what it truly wants, the answer is quite simple: peace, joy, freedom. You came here to learn and the grow. Keep in mind that both Mercury (communication) and Neptune (dream states, spirituality, and mysticism) are both retrograde now, causing more confusion than usual. Note that in the Nine of Summer, one of the flowers is the Moon flower, for dreams.

The oracle card tells us that you are safe as you change from one career (or life phase) to another. It can also refer to expanding your previous roles. This means that you do actually have the support and security of the Higher Realms. What has been calling to you is not "just a whim" and your joy is celebrated and encouraged by the Divine.  What you are attracted to is also attracted to you. Let go of fears about things not working out, because they are indeed working out beautifully. Let go and Trust.

In the Future position, we have the 6 of Autumn (Six of Pentacles) and the Music card.  Both cards mention healing. In the Fairy Tarot card, a Fairy has gone to a healer and accepted her help rather than doing it all alone. Both the healer and the heal-ee receive benefits. The one doing the healing gets to use her gifts and fulfill her purpose to help and the one receiving the healing gets not just physical mending, but the safety and security of being supported and cared for. This can also refer to financial gifts, either giving and receiving in other decks. Though that is a factor here, the healing benefits and joyfully connecting with others is the overlying message. Focus on Service and accepting the help you are offered and all else follows. Listening to your Higher Self always leads to joy and further wholeness whether you are giving or receiving. 

Notice that the Angel in the first card is playing a flute and refers to healing as well. So, in the past, you denied these gifts, but in the present and future, they are yours. Music that you enjoy, no matter the type, raises your vibration. When you raise your vibration, you heal. When you heal, when you share your joy from this higher point, you send out a ripple effect into the world. Did you watch the TV series "Heroes"? "Save the Cheerleader, save the World". It's a similar message here: Heal Yourself, Heal the Planet". We are all interconnected. So, by accepting your Life's Purpose joyfully, you both give and receive healing.

Recently, an amazing belly dancer named Jill Parker (speaking of heroes… she is my belly dance hero! :) ) taught a workshop here in Pittsburgh and she had us listen to music while lying down with our eyes closed to really see, feel, and experience the music before jumping ahead with trying to figure out what to do with our bodies to it. During one of the pieces, I saw water with ripples moving out from the center with the music. What I heard to go with that was "ripple effect". When you are experiencing music joyfully, especially through dance, you are healing yourself and also sending out healing vibrations. This is the message here: that you are On Purpose (or on your way) and this allows you to both give and receive healing.

Tarot Tuesday- Highs and Lows

Tarot Tuesday!! This is your reading for today through Monday. The Tarot deck is by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine and the Oracle cards are by Sonia Choquette. I used the positions of past, present and future. A Tarot card and Oracle card both sit in those position.

In the recent past, you were able to finally see the truth of a situation in a detached manner. Your higher self has urged you to make long term plans based on this new insight.

Currently, you have an insurgence of new emotions. You are experiencing both high and low emotions as you continue to process the new information and experiences that have resulted from the new insight you gleaned in the recent past. Mercury will go retrograde soon and clearly we are already feeling that. Connect with your nature guides to stay grounded.


Towards the weekend, you have a decision to make about whether to stay home and conserve energy or to take a risk going out in order to have fun. The sooner you make that decision, the sooner you can look forward to your choice and not waste energy in limbo. 



I've been taking custom healing crystal jewelry orders! As Mercury goes retrograde, these natural helpers are a fantastic way to weather any storm this period of time may generate. Remember that a slow Messenger of the gods results in communications not quite hitting their marks, traffic and other transportation delays, cloudy thinking, and quite often some pretty grumpy people. If you would like me to create something beautiful and beneficial with your budget and specific needs in mind, message me! Bracelets start at $45.
