Full Moon Reading, here it is.
Conflict and how it weaves its way into our life.
First Quarter Moon Phase
A wonderful opportunity to tune in and see how you are doing as we approach this first quarter.
Just take a deep breath and feel in your body where you maybe hanging on to stress, remember that stress blocks your divine energy, so breathe in deep and as you release the breath visualize the stress moving out of your body like whisps of smoke.
Comfort is only a breath away.
Know that the intentions, commitments and goals you set on the New Moon are still achievable, but achievement comes more easily when we are calm, balanced and loving.
So now is the time to be gentle and loving. Harsh disciplinary action will only freeze you deeper into stress. Chill out today, be loving, have a quiet cuppa tea, a relaxing hot bath, self-love is the order of the day.
Take quiet time today to look at these lists you made on the New Moon.
Do you need to make some changes? (You can you know) Did you perhaps take on too many projects with your high enthusiasm at the beginning of this cycle?
Re-organize your priorities, and know this is not a failure, its all simply just a matter of timing. Some things on the list may have changed. Remember synchronicity guides the way to the highest energy right now.
Trust the process.
Work with whats working, and know that what isn’t working simply needs more time to incubate and grow, and trying to force growth just doesn’t work and creates more stress.
So work with whats working, and let go of whats not working..its time will come..but not now!
Went to a gemstone and crystal show today, and scored these yummy pieces of petrified wood, I LOVE petrified wood, it’s beautiful to work with, very supportive and nurturing, helping you to connect deeper with you own internal wisdom, very grounding, in fact petrified wood always hits me in the heart like pounamu.
Then a most gorgeous labradorite wand, YAY!
I have 40 different tarot spreads in my work book, but a lot more here on my *all things tarot* page over at pinterest.
Take a look you might see a new spread to work with. All Things Tarot
And hey its New Moon tonight, so perfect for a new moon reading.
I have spent all morning swirling in the energy of The Fool/Seeker, and Ten Stone/Pentacle
Our Guide & Theme cards for the month of July
The Seeker Speaks: The world is darkening about me. The feet of dancers are stilled: the voices of singers are silent. Someone must find the soul of the land once more. I travel to restore what has been lost. Oh blackbirds, may your singing be my guide as step upon the rainbow road of my dreams.
Stone Ten Speaks: The way lies clear across the snow. The fire burns within. Come, learn of the abiding treasury of tradition. Keep Winter Court with us and beat us at our own game.
I love these poems that help us to connect with the wisdom of the cards.
They are from the book: The Arthurian Tarot Course, A Quest for all Seasons by Caitlin Matthews.
Just wanted to spend some time explaining what my intention is behind the videos I will be posting. I plan to post at least three per month.
I am very passionate about Tarot, like Very Passionate!
And I am wanting to deepen my own personal journey with tarot.
I have had cards for 22 years starting with my first (and still favorite) The Arthurian Tarot by Caitlin and John Matthews.
I poured over this deck every single night for at least 2 years, I was completely obsessed.
I was partaking in a spiritual growth and inner awareness year long course as well at the time.
This course continued for 3 wonderful years.
And over the years I have loved reading for people, and just recently I have begun teaching tarot courses again.
Teaching is something I love to do, sharing my knowledge and experiences is invaluable to me. But like I said I’m wanting to deepen my own inner world, so of course, what better way to do that than with Tarot as guide and companion.
So my readings each month will be like sacred touch stones along the way, for myself and you if you wish to journey with me.
The Tarot serves as anchor, reminder to your wisdom and strength, and loving support for wherever we are on the road.
I will draw two cards at the beginning of each month. This will be our theme, our guide who journeys with us will be drawn from the Major Arcana, this symbolizes the deeper connection to our spirit and all that is. And the landscape, and our emotional/physical journey will be represented by the Minor Arcana.
Then two more draws..one on the New Moon to map our progress, and one on the Full Moon, to remind us of what we can now lovingly release.
I’m super excited about this journey, and hope you want to travel with me.
Today try surrendering to all that is.
Let go of trying to control shit, sometimes you just have to chill the fuck out and glow with the flow!
Remember sometimes all the things you think you need just aren’t important right now..in this moment.
Take a breath, relax, and let go
Suspend your need to know
Empty your head so you can fill your heart
