Two of Cups ~ Tarot Card for Friday!

Hanson-Roberts Tarot

The Two of Cups is Friday’s Tarot card and it brings a message of coming together, meeting the right people and enjoying peaceful relationships.

You may meet someone today who shares your interests and zest for life – not necessarily a romantic partner, but someone who is a kindred spirit nonetheless.

You may also find yourself starting a new project with a business partner or coming together with a friend for a common purpose. Good communication, agreements and positive feelings abound with this card!

If you are in a relationship you may find that today goes particularly well, as romantic feelings are enhanced at this time. If you are quarreling with your partner, try to find three things you love about your partner and focus on those for today…and notice how this changes things.

Ten of Pentacles ~ Tarot Card for Thursday

ten of pentacles
Sirian Starseed Tarot

Thursday’s Tarot card is Ten of Pentacles (or Ten of Crystals in the Sirian Starseed Tarot deck). The message is this: wealth is here for you now – but do you believe it?

The woman in this card appears to have just discovered a valuable treasure or jewels, but she is somewhat guiltily looking over her shoulder as if to say is this really for me? (This is how I see this card, anyhow – perhaps you will see it very differently)

Sometimes prosperity and abundance comes rushing toward you, but if you don’t believe you deserve it you will reject it or just not see it. Abundance is a state of mind and if you do not believe it is possible or that you deserve it, you will never have it!

Here is a trick for manifesting financial prosperity that came to me when I looked at this card: believe your financial prosperity/abundance already exists and it is just a matter of you aligning with it. Based on your feelings, thoughts and actions, you align with a particular reality and then that reality is created. So ask yourself if your current feelings, thoughts and actions around money are aligned with your money goals/desires.

Page of Swords ~ Tarot Card for Wednesday!

Paulina Tarot by Paulina Cassidy

The Page of Swords from the Paulina Tarot is today’s card and he comes with a warning: don’t speak until you have thought things through.

If you are feeling particularly annoyed with someone, you may be tempted to write them a snippy email or give them a piece of your mind. Put some distance between the event that upset you and your response – give yourself time to calm down, collect your thoughts and evaluate your feelings.

The Page of Swords can also indicate feeling uncertain about something. If you feel this way, use the power of your pen to sift through your feelings. Write out all your concerns on paper (you can shred or burn the paper after if you are worried about others finding it). Once you have your thoughts down on paper, chances are they won’t be swirling about in your mind, making you all crazy!

Oracle Card for Tuesday

faery cards
Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle by Lucy Cavendish

Today’s oracle card is from my Wild Wisdom of the Faery oracle and it is Far, Far Away ~ creative daydreaming.

Let your imagination run free today! It’s okay to “waste time” staring off into the clouds and just contemplating life, for this is when the best ideas will come to you, when there is no resistance, no striving and no trying.

One of the keys to manifesting your dreams is to visualize and imagine what you want to welcome into your life. Let your inhibitions go and give yourself permission to daydream, to “space out” and let your mind engage in possibility thinking – imagining all kinds of wonderful possibilities.

Two of Pentacles ~ Tarot Card for Monday

crystal visions tarot
Crystal Visions Tarot by Jennifer Galasso

Monday’s Tarot card is the Two of Pentacles and this card is all about balance and performing under pressure.

You may find yourself juggling two or more responsibilities today, but rest assured that you will can manage the chaos effectively and with grace.

You can handle a lot all at once, but beware of the temptation to take on even more. This is a balancing act and tipping the scales too much to one side with cause everything to come tumbling down. When others see how well you manage stress and responsibilities, they may ask for your help, so know when to say “no”.

The trick to keeping calm amidst business is to stay centered within yourself. Don’t get pulled into any dramas today – instead, take deep breaths throughout the day and focus on what needs to get done.

Tarot Forecast for Feb 25 – Mar 3

Here is my Tarot Reading for the upcoming week…

On another note, I have decided to take a long break from doing personal tarot readings, as of March 8th. So if you were wanting a reading with me, now is the time, as I am not sure when I will be offering private readings again in the future.
Thank you to all who have ordered readings from me in the past – it has been an absolute pleasure and honor to read for you! I will continue to do my weekly video readings and daily reading blog, and will be offering some new services, like private tarot lessons in the near future 🙂

One Little Thing that will Transform Your Tarot Readings Forever

The other night I woke at 3am, full of anxiety about an issue that was on my mind. I felt full of uncertainty and I really just wanted answers, guidance and comfort. Whenever I feel sick to my stomach with worry, I reach for my Crystal Visions Tarot and my Angel cards.

But I knew that if I did a reading for myself in this state of confusion and fear, it would end up being a jumbled, nonsensical reading.

So I made an extra effort to ground myself and clear the energy in the room – clearing the decks for a great reading to take place.

Once sacred space and clear intention had been created, I felt so calm and grounded and ready to read the cards. The reading I did for myself was amazing – it was clear and accurate and left me feeling totally connected to my angels and guides, like they were right in the room with me! However, I know it would not have been so crystal clear and uplifting had I not taken the steps the I did before the reading.

Here is my personal formula for creating sacred space and clearing my energy:

buddha
Take a moment to chill out before a reading, no matter how stressed you are

1) Light some candles, turn down the lights and put on some relaxing music

2) Sage my aura – I do this by lighting a bundle of dried sage and wafting the smoke around me, with the intention of clearing my energy field of any fear or anxiety

3) Clear my reading space by wafting the sage smoke around my reading table
Sit calmly and “ground” my energy by taking slow, even breaths and visualizing any negative energy or worry draining out through my feet and into the floor. I make a conscious effort to connect my energy to the earth’s energy

4) Connect with my deck by holding it in my hands, closing my eyes and asking my Angels, spirit guides and higher self for help and guidance with my particular issue

5) Begin the reading with absolute trust that the cards that I choose are the ones I need to see at this time
I cannot tell you the countless times I have not taken these steps and instead did a rushed, panicky reading in a frantic attempt to get the answers I was looking for. It never worked out when I did it that way!

Creating sacred space makes your reading special and sends a message to the universe that you take this seriously – so expect to get outstanding results when you try this. Doing this one thing will change the quality of your readings in profound ways.

Perhaps you have your own ritual or steps for creating sacred space and clearing your energy before a reading? If you do, I would love to hear about them in the reply section below!!!

Ace of Earth ~ Tarot Card for Friday!

ace of earth
Mystic Meg Tarot

Ace of Earth (aka Ace of Pentacles) is Friday’s Tarot card. A new beginning and a new-found sense of clarity is before you – finally!

When you know what you want and where you are going, it becomes easy to know what you need and seek the help and guidance that is appropriate for you. In this sense, you are far more empowered now than you have been in the past.

Starting a new chapter in your life is exciting – you have released what doesn’t work for you and you are stepping forward on your path with open arms and a clear head.

This weekend will bring you plenty of opportunities to share your excitement with others – however, don’t feel you have to do so – sharing your dreams with others can make those dreams vulnerable, particularly if they haven’t really taken root yet. Sometimes its okay to keep secrets!

Seven of Pentacles ~ Tarot Card for Thursday

Robin Wood Tarot

Today’s Tarot card is the Seven of Pentacles and the message here is very clear….be patient!

You’ve put a lot of time, money and energy into something and you aren’t getting the payback you had hoped for. Don’t fret – things are manifesting “beneath the soil”. Keep nurturing this dream or project and you will have beautiful results before you know it.

Think of yourself as the gardener of your life – your hopes, dreams, wishes and creativity need to be tended to regularly, treated with love and care and allowed to blossom on their own. Don’t try too hard, but be consistent in your efforts.

The main takeaway message is this: your hard work and dedication will pay off, so don’t quit right before you reach the finish line!

Hanson-Roberts Tarot

Today’s Tarot card is the Queen of Rods (aka Queen of Wands). She has popped into your life today to remind you to take action on your dreams! Make it happen! With her drive, focus and fiery passion for life, there are no limits to what you can do.

You are here for a reason and you know you have a mission (not to sound too serious!), but sometimes you hold back and tell yourself maybe later I will live my purpose, but right now I have to do this or that.

The time is now. Take action today in a way that makes you feel inspired and proactive about living your purpose. Sign up for that course, write that letter or proposal, reach out and contact that person or even just write down your goals and commit to making one of them happen this week.

Today you have what it takes to be the Queen of Fire in your life!
